Supergroup ACT OF DENIAL Issue Studio Update, Second Single 'Controlled', Ft. By Special Guest DEATH's Bobby Koelble, Out Sep 20

 


New All-Stars melodic death metal band/project ACT OF DENIAL, formed in 2020, are currently in the studio, finishing their debut album 'Negative'. The band is featured by 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).

Today the band has issued their first studio update + teaser video for new single 'Controlled', read and watch below.

Guitarist/lyricist Luger:
"We are currently in the studio finishing our debut album 'Negative', including 10 songs. The finished songs are already in the process of mixing in Fredman studio. Me and Voi decided not to focus on one genre so there will be tunes for every metal fan. We're doing this mostly for ourselves and the songs we write are the songs we love to listen at home, hoping they will reach also to other people, as to ourselves. We saw the reaction of the fans, after hearing our 'Puzzle Heart', and we noticed that people like to hear some good old melodic death metal Gothenburg sound from the '90s, in our days, so we wanted to add 'Puzzle Heart' to our debut album. Our second single 'Controlled' will be unleashed on September 20th. What is special in this single is that it features another special guest who contributed to this project, DEATH's Bobby Koelble, a guest who is well known to all metal fans. So stay tuned!"

Lead guitarist/songwriter Voi Cox adds:
"We were always influenced by swedish style and sound when we were kids that's why it is a big honor to us to have Bjorn from Soilwork on this album, also Fredrik Nordström from Fredman Studio who basically invented that sound. We grew up listening to Soilwork, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames and ofc Death, and that's why we're so excited that Steve is in this project, too. So we are very much influenced by those bands but that doesn't mean that our songs will sound like that and you will hear all that in our debut album."

Besides the studio update, today ACT OF DENIAL reveal also the coverart for their second single 'Controlled', created by Voi Cox, out on September 20th.




Furthermore the band is thrilled to announce that their debut single “Puzzle Heart”, just in 7 days, has received over for 10k views, "We want to thank our Fans for their great support, it's highly appreciated!"

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
