Promoting metal as art and culture

Abbinormal

1996 By Max Maestrelli We are Abbinormal and we play grindcore, with heavy influences from death metal and crossover/thrash. This is Hellcore: short and fast songs for crazy people! Our first and latest release, called “1996”, is an album in which there are 16 songs: 9 of them were originally composed in 1996 (that explains…

Malevolence

The Other Side By Alex Taylor We’re 5 mates from Sheffield who have been playing heavy music together for the last 10 years. We were originally planning on calling our band Hanson but after discovering there was a band already with the same name, we decided to stick with the name Malevolence. Malevolence had been…

Elder

Omens by Nick DiSalvo We started Elder around 2006 as three friends around 17 years old. The band was just a hobby, the last of a long string of different musical projects formed by the same few musicians living in a small town in southeastern Massachusetts. Our first, self-recorded record was released in 2008, which…

SkamHan By F.J.  Our music can be described as dark, gloomy and preferably loud. We try to create music that takes the listener on a journey into the darker emotions and feelings we experience through life. Sometimes it’s primitive and raw, and sometimes it’s complex and dualistic. We are not restricted by genres and are…

Reflex Machine

Interzone By Alex Reflex Machine was born out of love for heavy, spastic music, but their sound has since evolved into haunting and noisy post-metal soundscapes with their debut album ‘Interzone.’ I would call our music an “experience”. It’s certainly not for everyone — or anyone other than ourselves, really. We wear our influences on…

Macelleria Mobile Di Mezzanotte

Noir Jazz Femdom by Lorenzo Macinanti  Macelleria Mobile Di Mezzanotte, also known as MMM, started as Adriano Vincenti’s solo project. The sound was focused on power electronics and harsh noise. Sex explicit lyrics and pictures have been a particularly rough constant, as seen on the first legendary record “Profilo Ottimale delle Ferite” which features raw…

Lost Orb

Low Ebb’s Lament by Chris West Lost Orb is one of several studio-only projects created by UK multi-instrumentalist Chris West. The project sits in the sludge and doom genres using weight, melody and non-traditional song structures. The first release by Lost Orb, a single 17-minute piece called Low Ebb’s Lament, features Chantal Brown from Vodun…

Brown, Alexander Morkh Shadrin, Nethern Temple Designs, Andrzej Kuziola, Antioukhin Konstantin, Christophe Vacher, Claudio…

Mondo Black

You watched ‘Lord of Chaos’ and read the evolution of metal most infamous demonic subgenre: BLACK METAL. Now is time to dive hell deep into the music, magick, philosophy and the dark arts. Unedited, uncompromised, politically incorrect, visceral, cruel and relentless. Featuring nearly 200 interviews, including Mayhem, Aosoth, Enthroned, Forgotten Tomb, Glorior Belli, Ragnarok, Svartsyn,…

Übergang

Evolution By Übergang Our music is for sure a crossover. We like to play metal in a modern way with a lot of hardcore and rock influence in it. Our lead guitarist Andor composed and recorded the music and our singer Sebastian wrote all the lyrics. We recorded the whole album at the end of…

Totengott

The Abyss by Jose Mora Appearing in the middle of the currently predictable and monochrome metal scene, Totengott is formed by three experienced musicians proceeding from metal, rock and hardcore bands from Asturias (Spain) with the aim to release the darkest songs that they are able to write and to claim the importance of evil…

The Osedax

Meridians By Kevin Grevey It took us a long time to write and release this one. It was probably finished over a year ago, but we’re perfectionists and after so many mixes we finally were like fuck it if we keep trying we’ll eventually hate it. I think we’re all pretty stoked on how it…

The Munsens

Unhanded by Michael Goodwin The Munsen’s make noise from a Colfax Avenue dungeon. Having carved out a place of their own in the much-lauded Denver, Colorado metal scene, the band released their first full-length album in 2019 on Sailer Records to critical acclaim. Our latest release (and our first full length), Unhanded, was the first…

Spotlights

Love & Decay by Mario Quintero We just describe our music as atmospheric, heavy rock. There are so many sub-genres these days and it seems like they’re not always accurately applied so we try to keep it simple when explaining our sound. We approached our latest release ‘Love & Decay’ like our previous albums. I…

Snake Tongue

No Escape – No Excuse By Patrik L In a world where the darkest sides of humanity rear their ugly heads again and again, there is no escape and no excuse. We are ”at fault like all the rest”. Snake Tongue does not point fingers, we are all a part of what goes on around…

Naga

Void Cult Rising by Lorenzo De Stefano Naga is a 3-piece ensemble from Naples, South Italy, and basically that’s all you need to know. Deeply grounded in the sulphur an atmosphere of their land, their aim is to deliver the biggest amount of distortion, heaviness and nihilism to your ears. No concept, no bullshits, no…

Fat Wang

Guru By David (Soda Machine) Loud Heavy Rock duo from Switzerland, mixing loud distorted guitar and hard-hitting drum riffs, Fat Wang is great in the art of making you wake up with a big buzzing in your ears that will last 2 weeks. A shitload of amps for a fuckton of noise. Playing together since…

Burning Gloom

Amygdala by Burning Gloom Burning Gloom started their first moves in 2011 under the name My Home On Trees, but it’s in 2012 when the band dives into any live activities and understood quickly which road had to be taken, playing the first shows and looking for the right sound. After the release of a…

Bloodthirst

I Am Part of That Power Which Eternally Wills Evil and Eternally Works Wrong by Rambo Bloodthirst, a Polish black/thrash metal act coming from the Goat City – Poznań.
