REVIEW: Black Roze - 'Spiritual Hell'

Black Roze is a quintet from Kent, UK who incorporate many rock genres into their sound, giving them an interesting and appealing blend and their debut full-length album 'Spiritual Hell' highlights this perfectly.

Opener ‘Obscenity’ is extremely melodic throughout with an especially memorable chorus. This is a great way to open as it leaves you wanting more of this raw and exciting sound and singer Vixen soothes you with her pleasing vocals.

'Godz N Queenz' is heavier and far more sleazy but in a gritty and brilliant way, with catchy hooks and attitude packed vocals from vocalist Viixen who gets to show her diversity – this is a fun and hard-hitting track.

‘Soul On Fire’ is a fiery slow burner which appropriately features a lot of soul, especially through Vixen’s beautiful vulnerable vocals. This is very powerful and soaring, with ambient and bluesy guitars throughout. Towards the end, there is a great transition as it picks up the pace whilst remaining coherent and we…

Finnish Melodic Death Metallers Re-Armed unleashes OFFICIAL TRAILER OF THE NEW ALBUM IGNIS AETERNUM

Finnish Melodic Death Metallers Re-Armed unleashes OFFICIAL TRAILER OF THE NEW ALBUM 'IGNIS AETERNUM'.

Re-Armed comments: "This is our 4th studio album and it will be the first one that includes lots of melodies, symphonic elements, and way more cleaner vocals than ever before, so writing and producing needed some extra brainstorming. The upcoming album is called 'Ignis Aeternum' and it will contain ten songs, that are strong and lifeful. A loose theme for the album is about positivity, a constant change and seeing life as it is in every level. It is a trip, a breathtaking view about life's diversity. This album is an ode to life."

IRIST release highly anticipated and praised debut album, 'Order Of The Mind'

After months of mounting anticipation and mass critical praise, Georgia bred metal powerhouse IRIST has released their debut album, Order of the Mind, via Nuclear Blast on March 27th 2020. It’s now available for purchase and stream at nuclearblast.com/irist-ootm.

Without warning, IRIST exploded on the scene in January with the massive single 'Burning Sage', which was lauded by Kerrang as having, “the throttle and swing of GOJIRA, the thoughtful bludgeoning of MESHUGGAH, the arcane sneer of HIGH ON FIRE”, and Revolver stating, “It's post-metal without the drawn-out pretense, it's hardcore without the corny bro-speak, and it worships at the foot of doom without the exhaustive passages that wear on the ear.”

Since that moment, IRIST has experienced monumental breakout success, fueled by crushing singles like 'Severed' and 'Creation'. Now, with the arrival of Order of the Mind, fans can witness firsthand the urgency and intensity of the album as a whole, as i…

BLOODYWOOD COMBATS LOSS WITH CANINE THEMED MUSIC VIDEO “YAAD;” DONATES AMBULANCE TO ANIMAL SHELTER

New Delhi based Indian Metal Band BLOODYWOOD has released the official music video for their newest single, "Yaad." Shot in between the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas and urban India, the music video celebrates the universal human experience of love and loss through a moving story between a man and his companion dog.

“’Yaad’ (Hindi for ‘remember' or ‘in memory’) is about the power of accepting the loss of a loved one and moving on. The lyrics celebrate the permanent impact they have on us, reiterating the belief that we carry them in our best memories, no matter how far apart we may be, says Karan Katiyar, Bloodywood's Founder/guitarist, “I lost my dog 10 years ago and I still feel the loss to this day. I wanted the video to show the bond between a man and his dog to highlight its message.”




In spirit of the message within the song and video, Bloodywood funded the purchase of an animal ambulance for a local non-profit animal shelter called The Posh Foundation,…

REVIEW: Blame The Sacred – 'The Path' EP

Blame The Sacred, a 5-piece rock band from Doncaster, South Yorkshire are set to release their new EP 'The Path' on March 27th 2020 which follows their 2018 debut EP 'Life Or Death'.

‘I Walk Alone’ has catchy driving riffs to open it with swaggering vocals and instruments to accompany. Vocalist Danny Porter has very authoritative vocals that add extra power to this hard-hitting opener, making for a brilliant start.
Changing direction ‘Hollow Ground’ is largely stripped back with melodic guitars with softer emotive vocals. Although it is slower-paced it is equally as strong especially through its passion and execution adding more depth.
‘Home’ picks up the pace again with crunchy guitars and seriously melodic riffs and beats, delivering a heavy slab of fine rock that will get you moving with its great grooves. There is no shortage of energy and enthusiasm from the whole band which translates wonderfully in their music and all members get their moment to shine particularly …

REVIEW: The Self Titled – 'Bear and Bulls' EP

The Self Titled are a heavy rock/metal quartet from Kent, UK. They released their latest EP 'Bear and Bulls' last year in 2019 which encompasses many rock elements.

Opener and title track ‘Bears and Bulls’ has a nice variety of vocals ranging from spoken rap to strong clean melodic ones and the instruments are equally as unpredictable and exciting. This exudes swagger and features great tones and distortion throughout adding to this massive sound. This is an intriguing start that leaves you eager to hear more and manages to pack a lot in before it ends.
‘Breathe Mix’ follows with assertive riffs and drums before soaring guitars really kick things off. It is faster-paced than the opener and makes for a fun motivating mosh rock track that will make you want to move especially with its Rage Against The Machine vibes present again.

'Disintegration' offers up a heavier darker metal inspired track with some nice distorted riffs and a different vocal style once more to portray t…
