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).

The single was recorded at the bands' home studio and brought over to Danny DiBella (who also helped with the band's last single and EP) at DiBella Studios for mixing and mastering.

When going into the studio to write the song the band knew that they wanted to go in and write something upbeat and fun while still having a relatable message. The band hopes that the takeaway from this release is that it gives people the courage to move past that hopelessness and fear of COVID-19 and gives
