fREEX Artist Focus - "Free Expression" Champions!



fREEX from San Franciso Bay Area are driving a forefront of an emerging new genre, known as “Free Expression” by creating their own unique sound by using the essence of punk, grunge, funk and more! For their bold and creative methods they are the front runners of this new exciting scene which is waiting to explode!


‘God, I Love America’ is a great introductory to the band’s sound and style and what they embody! Treating us to a bit of blues, melodic harmonies and then manic grunge punk group chants and bursts of loudness to keep you guessing, making a quick transition between mellow sounds and madness in an unpredictable but very welcome manner!

‘Is There Something Wrong’ best displays their elements of alternative rock and pop, especially present in the beaming chorus! This is completely different sounding to the first song I listened to – you wouldn’t know it’s the same band, but just demonstrates their vastness and creative diversity!

‘Mental Rental’ dives right in with speedy aggressive angry urgent punk screams, helping to reflect an unsteady state of mind as intended, as well as featuring ridiculously high pitched comedic vocals and lyrics, making this a brilliantly strange, creative and bizarre track, but in the greatest way which will put a smile on your face! This represents what they are all about – having fun and doing something different with no ‘constraints’ like that of a ‘mental’ patient!

‘Box’ is a fast paced senseless crazy fun song which is short lived but does the job, delivering a dramatic grunge anthem infused with punk sounds, paying homage to the classic punk scene, as well as rock ‘n’ roll style sounds, portrayed through the instruments – this ‘box’ fits a hell of a lot in it!

‘Lysine’ embraces their funky vibes the most, particularly through basslines and instruments with funny deranged high toned vocals, helping with the concept of taking ‘lysine’ and portrays the ‘effects’ it may have, once again making for a highly memorable experience! Amongst all this, a sombre pure grunge tinged chorus lurks, and then some more seriously funky bass and guitar riffs/licks are thrown in and creepy out of this world sound effects to add to the mix bag of strangeness and freedom!

I can see why they refer to their sound as ‘free expression’, as this simply describes what they are doing; throwing whatever they want in and having a hell of a lot of fun, without taking themselves too seriously, all the while creating brilliant light hearted credible music that anyone can enjoy! Their current songs are actually a few years old now, as the band are gearing up to release their debut album this Spring, so while we wait for that inevitably exciting concoction of genres to be unleashed, take a listen to their current material, as this is one distinctive and emerging band you should watch out for!

  New All-Stars melodic death metal band/project ACT OF DENIAL was formed in 2020 and composed of lead guitarist and songwriter Voi Cox (Koziak, Victim), guitarist and lyricist Luger (Benighted, Koziak), vocalist Bjorn Speed Strid (Soilwork), bassist Steve Di Giorgio (Death, Testament), drummer Krimh (Septicflesh) and keyboardist John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra). Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
