REVIEW: Act Of Denial - 'Negative' (Album)

  International melodic death metal group Act Of Denial was founded by lead guitarist and songwriter Voi Cox (Koziak, Victim) and guitarist Luger (Koziak, Benighted-Cro) in early 2020 to create early melodic death metal like they grew up with. They enlisted the help of some of their idols and those they admire to bring their vision to life. They are joined by Björn Strid (Soilwork), bassist Steve Di Giorgio (Death, Testament), drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Septicflesh) and keyboardist John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra).

This specific type of hypnotic therapy is for helping people who have dealt with past traumatic experiences.” - Kristof Bathory “Scars Of the Broken has been one of the most emotionally difficult albums that I have ever created. All of the musical and lyrical content was straight from a place that I have been dealing with for a long time of my life. I poured out every darkest and deepest emotion into every song. Mental health is something that a lot of people struggle with and sometimes

Texan Metalcore CIRCA ARCANA Shares Lyric Video For “The Tower” Off “Bridget Vīgintī” Out Feb 2022

  With two well-received singles out already, Circa Arcana are putting out a lyric video for “The Tower” off their upcoming EP entitled “Bridget Vīgintī”. The five tracks on the record take inspiration from the occult and tarot, exemplified in the track names. The “arena metal” track “The Tower” is no exception, and tells one hell of a story as you listen closely to its lyrics. Guitarist Johny Serna explains it in further detail: “The song ties in clean ambient hooks with a melodic chorus, a plethora of synth and string production and finishes with a death punch of a breakdown. It really shows off the multitude of influences based within our music and captures a little of everything for the listener to enjoy! The song started off with the opening lead. Originally all I had written was probably the first 30 seconds to the track and after I showed the rest of the guys we quickly figured out a pattern for it and knocked it out. Frankie actually came up with that breakdown for it, still on

French post-rock/metal five-piece Matrass unveil new single + official 4K music video "The Tide"

This new song will featured on the band's sophomore EP, 'Inner Wars', to be digitally released on February 18th wth the help of La Tangente Label . Check out the video below: "The Tide" is about being present in the moment and about self-awareness. The Tide metaphorizes this coming and going between conscious presence and moments of "floating" in our lives. This is what we tried to show in the video: the character is constantly being pulled down by the tide, which can represent the mind and the parasitic thoughts that prevent us from reaching this state of consciousness. Getting out of the water is a bit like getting out of the
