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.

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…

Stronger than ever! The original members Scott Leach and Marcel Sardella reformed Crystal…

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.

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’.

F41.0

Bürde By Hysteriis Concerning F41.0 the most influential tunes definitely came from mid-nineties extreme metal publications. Records like Ulver ‘Bergtatt’, Lunar Aurora ‘Ars Moriendi’, the whole Nagelfar discography and so on. So many timeless masterpieces had been created back then, and it would blast the whole interview to describe my passion towards many of those…

Mortuous

Through Wilderness by By Colin Tarvin ‘Through Wilderness’ is about horror, depression, real-life tragedies, belief in things beyond the outer limits of comprehension, obscurity. Every theme in this album has a direct connection, very personal. Things that are dark and vague that sound cool to us. It really took the four of us working towards…

Deathgrave

So Real, It’s Now By Greg Wilkinson and Andre Cornejo In 2012 Fern (Amber Asylum, ex-Ringwurm) and I (Greg, Brainoil, ex-Laudanum, ex-Graves at Sea) wanted to start working on a grind/HC/metal band.  Although it was an open forum, the initial premise was to grind with siege style blast beats while incorporating Rudimentary Peni style punk…
