Toxic Ruin

Nightmare Eclipse with David Miller, Stephen Behrendt David Miller: ‘Nightmare Eclipse’ is a culmination of everything we could find to push our musicianship. We tried to write riffs and structure the songs on this album, which was almost outside our capabilities. We normally start with a pile of riffs and then build a blueprint out…

Fleshbore

Embers Gathering with Michael McGinley, Michael O’Hara, Cole Daniels Fleshbore was formed at the beginning of 2017 in Indianapolis, IN, building on the band’s foundation that a few members were in previously. The idea of Fleshbore was not only to pave the way for a fresh start but to push boundaries both musically and mentally,…

Insane

Victims with Erik Kristhammar, Gustaf Hellberg Erik Kristhammar: Something’s wrong in the small Swedish town of Kristinehamn. In 2009, the four bloodthirsty killers in Insane began terrorising the underground with a slew of demos and EPs before committing their first full-length offence with ‘Evil’ in 2017. And these boys have a criminal record, with past…

Eternal Evil

The Warriors Awakening Brings the Unholy Slaughter with Eternal Evil.  Our new record varies a lot in music because most of the tracks were either on earlier releases or written after our demo. Usually, I come up with all the riffs, and we jam them in our rehearsal room, and other times another member does…

Galaxy

On the Shore of Life with Stu Callinan, Phillip T. King Stu Callinan: ‘On the Shore of Life’ follows our debut EP, ‘Lost From the Start’. This time around, we expanded more on our sound and took it to darker places, which was certainly more dynamic and adventurous. Writing began in late 2019, and it…

Livløs

And Then There Were None with Franz Posch ‘And Then There Were None’ it’s aggressive, honest and loud – as all things heavy should be, I guess. At least, I think that’s the headlines for me (Franz). We went into the process of making this record with the intent of creating an explosion of emotions…

Wizardthrone

Hypercube Necrodimensions with M. Xaviculus Bell ‘Hypercube Necrodimensions’ is our attempt at capturing the magic of the late 90s/early 00s euro metal that inspired us all in the first place. Miraculously, the creative process was smooth, inspiring and without any drama. Although we are all used to being ‘band leaders’ or the leading writers in…

Deinòs

Right Ascension by Alberto Ragone Deinòs was formed in 2020 by the guitarist and leader Alberto Ragone, previously known for his writing in Berith’s Legion and Psychotria, bands of the extreme North-Italian metal scene. The band debuted with the album Right Ascension, with Giacomo Mineo (Antikythera Mechanism) and Jei Doublerice (Despite Exile) as session vocalists,…

Rivers of Nihil

The Work with Adam Biggs ‘The Work’ is the big conclusion to our four-album concept series based on the seasons. It’s the ‘winter’ record if you couldn’t tell just by looking at the art, and the whole thing represents the season to its very core. It’s cold and bitter and unforgiving, a painful struggle at…

Rebellion

We Are the People by Fabrizio Costantino The band was formed in 2001 as a heretical spin-off of Grave Digger. Typical of Rebellion is that every album is a kind of concept album. There is always an overarching topic that is dealt with in a well-founded way. Whether that’s Norse mythology or Shakespeare, nerds worldwide…

Hammer King

Hammer King with Titan Fox V I believe that creating new music is natural for us. As you may know, we live in the kingdom of the Hammer King, who is a very fierce ruler. As we owe him our lives, we can’t escape his ever-present demand for new songs, and therefore we feel the…

Anakim

The Elysian Void by Anakim Hailing from the South of England, the five band members each have over a decade’s experience in the metal scene. Past and present affiliations include; The Drowning, Basement Torture Killings, Bloodshot Dawn, and Imperium, to name just a few. Having just released our second album, ‘The Elysian Void’, on July…

Atræ Bilis

Apexapien with David Stepanavicius Our new record Apexapien 2021 is out now through 20 Buck Spin. It’s our first full-length album, and we’d like to think that it picks up where the standards of death metal started to get lazy. That is, we’ve tried to take the helm and recourse. Critics typically lump us in…

Vulture

Dealin’ Death with Stefan Castevet Since we’re living far apart from each other, we’re working out our ideas from home. We tab stuff or record ideas and then discuss everything altogether. That also worked out pretty well this time. Part of the songs was written on tour with ram back in 2019. There, we could…

Rage

Resurrection Day with Peter ‘Peavy’ Wagner Our new Album ‘Resurrection Day’ was released in September and developed into a real success. It´s highly liked by Fans and Media, bringing us our best chart positions so far. It was the first work with my new guitar players, Jean Borman and Stefan Weber. Both guys supported me…

Crypta

Echoes Of The Soul with Tainá Echoes of the Soul 2021 is a very diverse album, it covers influences different from death metal influences from different origins of the style, which made us deliver a non-repetitive album. The songwriting process was all at a distance due to the pandemic and the pre-production. We went into…

Deformatory

Inversion of the Unseen Horizon with Charlie Leduc Deformatory is a death metal band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Forming in 2010, they set out to create an extreme sound, fusing together classic influences (Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.) and their love for modern tech death. The result is a uniquely relentless blend of death metal…

Leila Abdul-Rauf

Phantasiai with ​​Leila Abdul-Rauf ‘Phantasiai’ is my fourth solo record, and once I came up with the concept, the music came together fairly quickly. Unlike my first three albums, the concept, name and cover image came into being before any music. In general, my solo writing process begins with laying down two or three initial…
