It Came From Beneath - The Last Sun EP

The Last Sun EP cover art

It Came From Beneath are a Deathcore Metal five piece from Lyon, France who formed in 2010. They released their debut album, When No Light Remains in 2013, following their first self-titled EP in 2010. Now with a mix of new material, a cover song and some remasters of previous material, they are back with The Last Sun EP.

The opening title track, is suspenseful and eerie with a sonic ambience, with mighty demonic raw vocals to accompany the catchy chugging riffs and crashing furious drums. The guitar work however goes beyond your typical death metal, being complex and having a evil presence. This is doing the Deathcore genre proud, and should be repeated many times to fully appreciate it!

Up next we have 'The Burden', again bringing with it a dark resonance, flowing perfectly from the opener. This is a deeply belligerent offering, where they stampede and blast through with all they have got, with the harmonious layers of the guitars, making it stand out further.

We are treated to an unexpected cover of Australian rapper/songwriter, Iggy Azalea song, 'Work' , which against all odds, dare I say 'works' exceptionally well, and they is no questioning that they put their own stamp on this, and deliver a very melodic deathcore rendition indeed! 

Back to their own creations with, 'Broken End' which was originally released on their first EP. It has been re-analyzed and revitalised to a more experienced level, that a band naturally come to learn, but still relentlessly battles on, with a crashing storm of heavy darkness, with impressive guitar licks and well timed breakdowns and tempo changes.

To end this ferocious high speed affair is, 'The Answer Remains Unknown', which again is an updated trimmed version, as it originally comes from their debut album. This is potentially the most groove ridden thunderous song featured, with brilliant memorable rhythms, melodic intelligible guitars throughout and flawless brutal vocals heightening this.

It Came From Beneath may have unleashed a new EP containing a cover song and remastered versions of their previous material, however that doesn't detract from the high enjoyment and excitement that this has to offer! Deathcore can sometimes be too glum and bleak to really make a defining impact or dent in the genre, however with their sonic resonant vibes and complex brutal, well structured compositions, they still manage to grab your attention and stand out, so The Last Sun is most certainly worth listening to!

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
