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. The song delivers the perfect blend of melody and aggression to take you on an exhilarating ride and sets the scene for the rest of the album. The striking ‘

Malacoda Releases Lyric Video For "The Year Walk"

  Malacoda has released their brand new lyric video "The Year Walk". Check out the video below: Malacoda adds - "The Year Walk gives a good glimpse as to what the rest of this EP is about. It's aggressive, ridiculously over the top, and really friggin' dark. This is probably my favourite of all the songs we've released this year. Working with Michael Farina again behind the kit on this song was great- he always brings wacky ideas to the table that we have to try."

  Bang Bang Firecracker Debuts "Unleash The Devil" Music Video, the much anticipated official music video for the opening track on their latest EP, See Evil. The 7-minute monster track, Unleash The Devil, showcases a darker tonality. Its magnitude commanded an epic video with an intense narrative, reflecting the band's ambitions to continually set the bar higher.

Together they deliver a creative concept that is most definitely up another level in production value. Shot last month in the band's home town of Stoke on Trent, the project stars Fantasy Kawaii eGirl Francheska Alexandria Welbourn as the primordial she-demon, Lilith. Cutting between fierce live performances from the band members, the story depicts the occult power struggle between kings of hell and deviant que

Pop Punk Band CHIEF STATE Debuts New Standalone Single "Metaphors"

  Vancouver, BC pop-punks Chief State have just released their new single "Metaphors" via Mutant League Records. The standalone single serves to tide fans over until their debut full-length, which is due out in 2022. Nik Pang of Chief State says, “Metaphors is about being in a really dark place, but not knowing how to communicate that to your loved ones. Instead of saying what you mean, and exactly how you feel, it’s easy to gloss over it and be super generic and vague.” This is the first new music from the band since the release of the band's 2020 breakthrough 'Tough Love", which resonated with media and lovers of the genre alike. Check out the lyric video below: https://www.facebook.com/chiefstate

INFRARED Release Video For “No Master, No Gods” Off Latest Album “From the Black Swamp”

  Canadian thrash act Infrared has a new video out for their track “No Master, No Gods”, which comes from their recently released album “From the Black Swamp”. Birthed back in 1986, their music is an experience that brings the listener back in time to the 80s, but with an ever so slight hint of modern metal bolstered by solid, high-quality production. Infrared starts with a riff, from which the rest of the music spawns. The songs may have an energy that conveys a certain feeling which can lead to a lyrical topic or sometimes they just come up with a cool song title and then write lyrics to go with it. They share their thoughts on the energetic and fast “No Master, No Gods”. “With blistering drums and riffs coupled with mid-tempo verses and slow grinding choruses, No Masters, No Gods is about the power of truth. When you have it, you will bow to no one; not to gods, profits, leaders, or even people in your interpersonal life.” Watch “No Master, No Gods” at https://youtu.be/zQvr6ly34p4
