Kadavar

Powerful and dirty “For me, it’s a very serious title, bar any humour. We maintain the achievements of our elders, such as women rights, peace and a corporate Europe by touring through clubs, sniffing 100 euro bills through our noses and call attention to ourselves by posting insta stories. Meanwhile, people rising to power decline…

Archspire

Relentless Mutation by Oli Peters Our musical backgrounds are all somewhat different; the members of Archspire meet in the middle in regards to influences and inspiration. When we formed the band, we made a decision of what we wanted the band to sound like, however if you look closely, you’ll hear inspirations from all over…

Warbringer

Metal thrashing geeks The thrash movement of the 1980’s was without a doubt one of the most glorious and significant periods in heavy metal history. The aggression, the speed, the politically, violent and gory themes, the anger and the power, changed the metal music world forever. Warbringer, the quintet from the LA area, bring all this…

Xandria

Fantasy and reality by Marco Heubaum Metal is as real or unreal as music just is. And it´s a big mixture of themes anyway; you find everything in metal. And a big part doesn’t have anything to do with fantasy topics. For example, I would name Pantera as one of many influences for Xandria (for…

Witchwood

Handful of Stars By Woody We all come from different backgrounds, for sure we all evolve from the seventies and sixties rock n roll but going more in-depth we all have different preferences about specific kind of genres. In my case I listen a lot to jazz music not always related to guitar playing, I…

End of Green

Void Estate by Michael “Sad Sir” Setzer I still haven’t come up with a better explanation or description than “bad weather music”. Somehow this still fits after all these years. ‘Void Estate’ is a little more mellow and probably grumpy at the same time. This one turned out even different then we all expected, which…

Seven Kingdom

Decennium by Camden Cruz We are not super political in our lyrics, but there are times where we speak generally how we feel against what people would call ‘the man’, haha. As for religion, we don’t really hit that at all either. We are mostly trying to write music that is memorable, melodic an catchy.…

Final Coil

Persistence of memory by Phil Stiles It’s difficult to describe our music, I tend to write according to what I feel rather than to any particular genre, so defining the album in a single sentence is pretty much impossible. It’s been interesting, actually, to see the reviews where we’ve been called everything from post-metal and…

Raised on Metal By Jens Börner Our musical backgrounds are the whole German scene of the ’80s. We are very influenced musically by bands like running wild and Stormwitch, while our vocals are more influenced by Tyrant or Grave Digger. Also, bands like Bathory or Dissection have a strong part in our music. Of course,…

Nervecell

The warning by Barney Ribeiro In comparison to our previous albums, I’d say we’ve experimented a little more this time around both in the way we approached writing these new songs and with the finer details like adding ambiences and atmospheres into the music. We’ve added a bit more room for creating a sense of…

Fvneral Fvkk

Severe crucifix-masturbation By Frater Flagellum Everyone in the band has lots of years of experience in other bands. Even though “Lecherous Liturgies” is the very first release of Fvneral Fvkk, we sure are no noobs to the game. Each of us has released several albums before, and we have toured a lot. We were (and…

The Pod

By Scott Endres of MAKE I usually just tell people it’s ‘blackened industrial’ because I really have no idea how to describe it. But the word ‘industrial’ has such a specific connotation I never feel like that sits quite right either, even though Pigface’s ‘Gub’ is easily a touchstone for The Pod. It’s really just…
