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). As if the project line-up wasn’t hefty enough, some of the tracks also feature special guests. The opener ‘Puzzle Heart’ gets things off to a rapid and sizzling start that immediately hooks you in. Björn Strid’s diverse and signature tones work wonderfully, which is no surprise given his work with Soilwork.

TITVN Release New Single "Unholy Beast (The Revenant)"

The band have just unleashed their new single “Unholy Beast (The Revenant)”. “Unholy Beast” is about the confrontation between two characters from the popular video game “Apex Legends”. The lyrics were inspired by the point of view of the character Revenant and what he faces when going against Loba, the female character that is out for revenge against him for murdering her family. The instrumental aspect of the song was driven to be fast, heavy and make listeners feel the anger that Loba feels throughout her journey of having Revenant's voice stuck in her head and seeing him all around her.

The Difference Between Release Haunting New Single "Cold Comfort"

  Ever since their respective bands toured together in 2017, guitarist Chris Wethington (of Softspoken) and drummer Cody Frain (of A Scent Like Wolves) entertained the idea of writing together in a new project. Four years later, after touring across the world, racking up millions of streams, and releasing Billboard charting albums separately, their ideas and talents have come together to create the perfect blend of progressive metalcore grooves and beautifully dissonant melodies. Giving a voice to the music is Chris Roberts - the original vocalist of (formerly) post-hardcore band Emarosa (then also known as Corsets are Cages). Roberts played a large part in writing the first versions of most of the songs that would end up on Emarosa's breakout EP "This is Your Way Out", but parted ways with the band to see success in two other regional acts (The Revival Sound, Take Me Home) before taking a break from performing. Having shared the stage with Roberts while in his first band
