What do Deez Nuts and Six Feet Under have in common?

What do Deez Nuts and Six Feet Under have in common?

Wait, what? Deez Nuts, the australian party animals, and Six Feet Under, the old and grumpy death metal dudes under the reign of former Cannibal Corpse-shouter Chris Barnes? Judging from their new releases – “Word Is Bond” and “Crypt Of The Dead” respectively – both […]

Review: Cruel Hand – The Negatives

Review: Cruel Hand – The Negatives

Cruel Hand needed four years to come up with a new album – and four years can be a long, challenging time for young adults and a band. “The Negatives” proves that a band can integrate new ideas, new influences, new role models, and yet still […]

Review: Sleepwave – Broken Compass

Review: Sleepwave – Broken Compass

Sleepwave is the new project of former Underoath singer Spencer Chamberlain, who wants to continue his career in the music industry after Underoath disbanded in 2013. The press sheet to “Broken Compass”, the debut album of his new project, somewhat implies that Chamberlain had many […]

Review: Sun Worship – Elder Giants

Review: Sun Worship – Elder Giants

Review: Sunwølf – Beholden to Nothing and No One

The british duo Sunwølf released their third album two months ago, but it took me a while to grasp “Beholden to Nothing and No One” in its entirety. The 14 tracks demand the full attention of the listener, otherwise they are not more than nice background […]

Review: Opeth – Pale Communion

Review: Opeth – Pale Communion

Opeth have left their metal days behind with “Heritage” and apparently don’t want to change that with their new album “Pale Communion”. In fact, they focus even more on progressive and classic rock.

Review: Ancst – In Turmoil

Review: Ancst – In Turmoil

It would be easy to dismiss Ancst as another hipsterian black metal band: they’re hailing from Berlin, they don’t look like your run-off-the-mill black metal dudes, and they’ve formed in 2011, when black metal got somewhat trendy and hip. But who cares? “In Turmoil” has […]
