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 bands have in common that they decided to write and

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 have retain their trademark sound. One easily recognizes their style
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 14 tracks demand the full attention of the listener, otherwise they are not more than nice background noise. And that would be a shame! “Beholden to Nothing
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.
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 great songs on it, even though it contains a mixture
