I love the latest The Ocean song

Did you check out “Devonian: Nascent”, the latest song off the upcoming The Ocean album “Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic”. Even though the song, which has Kataonia-head Jonas on guest vocals, clocks in at eleven minutes, it never lets down in intensity. The Ocean evolve their sound (as much […]

Make distros a threat again

  Evil Greed has evolved from a minor distro to a major player in the european distro scene and business, despite all (now severed) connections to Wolf Down. Always looking for new ways of promoting their business, the guys now found a new way: invite […]

Ultha deliver again, this time via Century Media

Ultha inked a deal with Century Media not long ago. The first result of this deal will be the release of “The Inextricable Wandering” in October. The band released a 14ish minutes long first impression of the new material, which totally blew me away. “The […]

The Amity Affliction show their “Misery”…

which can’t compete with the one and only version out there.  Well, to be exact: the australian metalcore heavyweights just showed off their new album with one song, but while “Feels Like I’m Dying” does convince with its visuals, both music and lyrics left me […]

BOSSE-DE-NAGE post first track of “Further Still”

I’ve never paid much attention to Bosse-De-Nage, even though the guys have been around for more than a decade by now. But their first track of their upcoming album “Further Still” caught my attention. It’s a solid, mid-tempo track with whirling guitar work and an […]

Empowerment deliver an important statement with their new video

We live in troubled times. We live in fucked-up times. I wonder how history will look back – and judge – on the early 21st century, but it can’t be with positive thoughts. We, the wealthy states of the northern hemisphere, don’t give a fuck […]

New Converge stuff

New Converge stuff

Seems I missed a few memos on this one, as the release of “Beautiful Ruin”, a four-song-EP by Converge, caught me totally by surprise. Recorded during “The Dusk In Us” sessions, this completes the release of all their recorded material from that time period. The […]

Harms Way give vinyl the love it deserves

Harms Way give vinyl the love it deserves

Harms Way gave their vicious “Posthuman” record the love it deserves by releasing in several stunning vinyl versions. Vinyl sales are up, which means that every new records sees a vinyl release. But most of them are boring one-colour treatments, with the occasional special version […]

The new Revocation album leaves me unimpressed, but…

I really dig their new video and the vinyl version of it. The video features scenes of their tour life, mixed with live performance shots. It gives a very good impression of the circumstances a medium sized (in terms of success) metal band faces on […]
