BEYOND THE STYX: French metallic hardcore squad’s new album ‘Sentence’ is out now

 


Beyond the Styx drops their anticipated third record, 'Sentence', (04 February 2022). The album sees the Tours-based metallic hardcore crew strongly showcasing resistance to global injustice and passionately echoing the mental struggles evoked from this unjust world. The album is now available via WTF Records (CD and vinyl) and Diorama Records (cassette) and being distributed via Season Of Mist.

The band informs:
“Beyond being the 3rd album of the band, this is a very special album since the global health context forced us to finalize it remotely, a first for us who are used to composing with all 5 members in a live rehearsal!”

'Sentence' is now available on all major digital/streaming platforms; stream/download it AT THIS LOCATION.

Stream on YouTube:

Is our history an eternal beginning?” That’s the challenge Beyond The Styx undertakes: Embodying the flapping of a butterfly wing, become a part of the storm of change. Hit the road without counting the distance that separates the gig of tonight from the next, support each local scene so that hardcore music exists today and tomorrow, rally the people to defend respect for difference, and invite everyone to think about the drift of the values of the contemporary society so that the reality of today does not become the new hell of tomorrow.

Born in the underworld of Tours in the twilight of 2011, Beyond The Styx is inspired by a dark and violent musical universe, at the crossroads between hardcore punk, metal, and crossover thrash. The French quintet has gradually reinforced their destructive armory over the course of a demo, an EP, and two lauded LPs. An active live band, BTSTYX has unleashed their out-of-control energy in front of the crowds on more than 180 gigs all over Europe, performing alongside Terror, First blood, Nasty, Malevolence, Cold Hard Truth, Broken Teeth, and Alea Jacta Est, to name a few.

With their new record, Sentence, BTSTYX incarnates themselves as a musical chimera. Patently, this album is their most freaked-out and frenetic outing, with lyrics addressing topical affairs such as uninhibited and oppressive xenophobia, global warming, the society of control, police violence, and burnout. Some of the tracks also go a little more personal, concentrating on loneliness, isolation, social withdrawal, and self-loathing. Throughout the ten rip-roaring numbers, BTSTYX manifests an authentic, incisive desire to open minds to the evils that have been gnawing away for too long at this most decadent modern society.

BTSTYX will play a torrent of live shows to support the album. Details on the shows will be announced soon.
