REVIEW: Re-Armed - 'Ignis Aeternum'

Finnish melodic death metallers RE-ARMED unleash their fourth highly anticipated album on June 5th via Black Lion Records titled Ignis Aeternum which is Latin for 'fire forever' which seems a very fitting title for what is to come...

Opening track 'Dive Within' is powerful and fast throughout with quick fierce vocal bursts matching the speed and tone of the instruments wonderfully. It ends on a ambient beautiful note and gives you everything and more to keep you gripped.

Soaring single 'Beyond The Horizon' features endless resonant and striking guitars which makes it exhilarating throughout, as well as memorable clean vocals in the chorus, making a nice contrast to the harsher vocals and acts as a brilliant representative track for the band and album. It is solid and slick with technical instrumentation and tonnes of depth, something the band thrives on. This is one to stick on repeat.

'Ode To Life' opens with some strong and prominent bass and great le…

Conquer Divide Return With New Song & Video "Chemicals"

Metalcore act Conquer Divide released their self-titled debut back in 2015 then since 2018 the band went quiet but now they are back with new single and video 'Chemicals'.
Check out 'Chemicals' below:

 "We know everyone's been dying to hear what we've been up to, and the short answer is that we had just taken a bit of a break to focus on our personal lives. We had a lot of time to reflect on what direction we wanted to go in next. I think collectively our musical tastes have all evolved. We still wanted to feel heavy and anthemic but it was important for us to step outside of our comfort zone moving forward," the band, which accumulated over 20 millions streams of its debut album, explains.

About the new track, which was produced by Joey Sturgis and Tyler Smyth, the band shares, "'Chemicals' is about addiction from the perspective of an artist. More often than not, addiction can get swept under the rug or is almost encouraged in some circum…

LAANG release new single and lyric video

Laang 冷 (meaning “cold” in Chinese) has released the debut single “我的漂浮屍體” (meaning “My Floating Corpse”) from their upcoming second album “Xinteng” (Sadness, loss) in the form of a lyric video. The music of Laang is based on the horrifying visions seen during a near-death experience of frontman Yang Haitao while medically dead. While the subject matter of the first album “Haiyang” (Ocean) primarily explored feelings of terror, Haitao reports that “Xinteng” will be strongly focused on the melancholic and depressive overtones of life after death.

“我的漂浮屍體” gives a first glimpse at the new music of Laang’s second album “Xinteng”. “Xinteng” will be released worldwide on Austria’s Talheim Records in both physical and digital formats.
Check out the new single and lyric video below:

REVIEW: Elimination - 'Of Gods & Beasts' EP

Elimination are a 3 piece thrash metal act hailing from Suffolk UK who formed back in 2007. They released their debut album two years later “Destroyed By Creation” which opened up many doors for the band and led to a quick release of their sophomore album "The Blood Of Titans' which was supported by a UK tour with Evile as well as festival appearances at the likes of Hammerfest. The band had a hiatus back in 2012 and returned in 2018 with a new line-up and now in 2020 they are ready to wreak havoc once again with their upcoming EP 'Of Gods & Beasts'...

Opening track 'In The Name Of Violence' is blistering and insane throughout with effective and powerful group chants and soaring guitars, a great demanding and powerful start to the EP.
'The Return' showcases immediate crushing guitars and a sense of urgency but has a more optimistic and hopeful sound than the opener and a highly skilled solo to top it off, another boastful thrash metal offering.
