As its the start of a new year, time to look ahead to some the upcoming metal and rock album releases that Mad About Rock is particularly looking forward to throughout the year...


Within Temptation new album 'Resist' is out 1st February 2019 and will mark the Dutch symphonic metallers seventh album. The band have already graced us with some massive and hard-hitting singles featuring brilliant guests with singer Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach) and Anders Fridén (In Flames), leaving us very eager to hear more in what sounds like some of their best and most dynamic songs yet.



Children Of Bodom
 upcoming 'Hexed' album will be the melodic death metallers tenth album due for release March 8th via Nuclear Blast. New single 'Under Grass and Clover' is a good sign of what is to come, being extremely catchy and memorable.

EQUILIBRIUM discuss line-up in second album trailer

Progress without estrangement is a rare craft that very few bands truly master. All too often, a band ventures so far from its roots that it loses its trademark sound. And every so often, a band’s stagnation drains all of its charm. Finding that rare balance between the two is a huge task not easily accomplished. And yet there is a band that has been coming close to that perfect balance more and more over the course of the past few years. A band that, ironically, already bears that balance in its well-known name: EQUILIBRIUM.

Their latest, sixth record 'Renegades' (out: August 16th via Nuclear Blast) is heralding a watershed, the turn of an era for this genre. This is metal at its most epic and most monumental, bearing huge songs, resting firmly in the Zeitgeist with massive, modern production and sporting quite a number of eclectic influences. Above all, it’s still Equilibrium - quite possibly more than ever.

The band presents the second album trailer. Find out more about the n…

“There are plenty of leeches in this world that have no other intentions but to suck the life out of you for their own selfish reasons, especially when they choose to not understand the importance of the ones closest to them striving to achieve something creative and worthwhile, which we all know takes years of mental, physical and financial sacrifice.
‘In The Garden’ is a massive ‘f##k you’ statement to every single self-absorbed individual out there unwilling to let the people closest to …

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Mindcell EP

Modern UK metal band Spreading The Disease start a new chapter with latest EP ‘Mindcell’ which was released via Rock Surgery Records.

Opener ‘Obsession’ is fierce yet melodic throughout, with a stand out chorus and immediately hooks you in and leaves you eager for more…

‘Voices’ starts with effective clean vocals before the brutality kicks. It is dynamic from start to finish with plenty of hard-hitting riffs and varied vocals which give it a frantic and intense feel, this is a must hear track.

‘The Anger Inside’ opens with alarming sirens and then goes on a full-blown rampaging assault. This will certainly get your blood pumping and boiling, a good one to let loose too. Offering something a bit different, being the most melodic and optimistic track is ‘Waves’ which is ambient and serene yet progressive which seems fitting. Another well-rounded and vibrant track with intelligible riffs.

Final track ‘Conflicted’ opens with crunchy riffs and goes on to display fierce vocals and goo…
