Chrch

Light Will Consume Us All By Chris Lemos Chrch wields epic, lengthy songs, massive low end, and an occult vocal presence in a perfect blend of height and depth. Minimalist, indulgent, or straightforward; the music of Chrch calls the listener to inhabit it, allowing enough room for its transmutation into anything one desires of it.…

Centuries

The Lights of This Earth Are Blinding By Derrick Flanagin Our new album ‘The Lights of This Earth’ I think as a whole we just took a little more time with the writing process. We also took some time off to try and mould these songs and find the new direction we wanted to go.…

Baptists

Beacon Of Faith by Andrew Drury ‘Beacon Of Faith’ it’s an album of 13 noisy punk songs that were written over the last couple of years in a basement in Kelowna, BC, fine-tuned in Vancouver, BC, recorded in Salem, MA and mastered in Portland, OR. The process this time around was different for us because…

Ad Hominem

Napalm for All By Kaiser Wodhanaz ‘Napalm For All’ is a “fuck you all” album with a black’n’roll attitude and no compromise. Probably the most instinctive since… For A New World full length. The sound is devastating and rage overwhelming. Lyrics are strongly anti-religious and nihilistic, while the artwork underlines the supremacy of oneself by…

Letters from the Colony

Vignette By Alexander Backlund I’m the vocalist of LFTC. I’ve included a link to our bio below as we don’t have a TL;DR version of it yet. You can just copy/paste whichever section you think is relevant or do some Frankensteining. Thanks for letting me do this interview, I hope you enjoy it! Oh, and…

Nervosa

Downfall of Mankind By Fernanda Lira Our music can be described as very visceral and aggressive Thrash/death metal, influenced by Destruction, Sepultura, Slayer and many more… It’s common to find people saying that the band has an “old school” thrash metal, cause our influences came from many old school bands and you can clearly find…

The Osiris Club

The Wine – Dark Sea by Andrew Prestidge This album was a four-year gestation until release, after we played Roadbum in 2015 some members left due to commitments outside the band, so we were reduced to a core four-piece for some time. The new LP is based on in part some of the short stories…

Bleeding Gods

Dodekathlon By Mark Huisman ‘Dodekathlon’ is our second full-length album and was released January 2018 through Nuclear Blast Records. It is a concept album describing the labours of Hercules. Each track represents one labour, and thus the album narrates his tale in consecutive fashion. Our singer is a walking history encyclopedia, and he put us…

Skinless

Savagery By Sherwood Webbe ‘Savagery’ It’s heavy and brutal! Jesse Levitt created the art, and we felt it matched the vibe we were going for on this record. It’s dark and disgusting much like the music and production on ‘Savagery’. Not many rules or principles when writing a new album, besides knowing who we are…

Circle Of Silence

The Crimson Throne By Niklas Keim Circle Of Silence was formed back in 2006. The founding members Nick, Tobias, Christian, Björn and Pit are still part of the band. From 2006 until 2010 we released two self-produced demo albums. 2011 we joined the Massacre Records family and released our first official album ‘The Blackened Halo’.…

Abinchova

Weltenwanderer By Arnaud We’d describe our music as a healthy dose of melodic death metal mixed with different influences, ranging from bands like Epica, Ensiferum, Dornenreich, and many more. In the end, we listen to the songs and decide if it works for us or not. We generally have one or two persons come up…

69 Chambers

Machine By Nina Vetterli-Treml 69 Chambers is a minefield of contradictions, combining brutality with pop sensibility in an array of in-your-face rock and metal songs. Led by multi-instrumentalist and frontwoman Nina Vetterli-Treml, they combine outstanding musicianship with a voice that has been described as somewhere between “Tori Amos goes metal” and “Alanis Morissette with balls”.…

Night Viper

Exterminator By Tom Sutton Since the first whispers heard in 2014, the name of Gothenburg’s Night Viper has only gotten louder and louder. Thanks to a blistering debut album on Svart Records and a reputation as one of the most energetic, exciting and downright headbangable live bands around, Night Viper is now a must-see band…

Death Alley

Superbia by Dennis Duijnhouwer The songwriting and creative direction are a product of the journey we have lived over the past years, ever since we released our debut ‘Black Magick Boogieland’.

Heir

Au peuple de l’abîme By M.D. Stylistically, we try to perform a mix between black metal and post-hardcore, the goal being to be able to express at the same time both raging violence, and a sense of fragility and vulnerability. Something along the lines of Emperor meets Amenra and Mono. I think what drives our…
