What defines a hero? Portrayed throughout culture all over the world as the men who are in spandex flying around in the air, the reality is something a lot more humble.

The art of story telling is hardly something new. A huge part of culture, entire civilisations have been built on the art of telling a story, be it factual or fictional. Giving birth to the idea of literature and film but how can it be incorporated in music? The concept album is an art form that has been around since its seventies hey day. Forming a bridge between the Horror medium and the concept album Carach Angren have had their finger on the (deceased) pulse of the story. Previously releasing 2015’s This Is No Fairytale, now the band return for their most ambitious haunting yet, Dance and Laugh Amongst The Rotten.

Decapitated : The (Anti)Cult Classic
11th July 2017, 11:00
Posted by Tristan

Decapitated. One of the biggest debates among metalheads, the absolute epitome of old vs new. Beginning at such a young age, these pioneers of Death Metal had a pretty rough and ultimately uncertain future ahead. In their inception the band would be more akin to the likes of Morbid Angel or Deicide. What would come next many deem as Death Metal royalty, Nihility, an album that is just as relevant to this day as it was back in 2001. Not stopping for anything the band forged ahead again, with The Negation further cementing their sound until their Death Metal zenith that was Organic Hallucinosis.

Despite what might be polarising opposites, subgenres are an example of community. United in their struggles, the common goal of a sense of unity brings disparate musical elements into the same boat. Any self respecting Metalhead will know the fierce loyalty represented in the Metal community could be applied to the likes of Dance or Jazz, perhaps even Country…

Swedish Death Metal is often cited as one of the most important of the sub category Death Metal groups. Responsible for one of the genres all time greats, At The Gates created this quintessential sound. Having returned back in 2014 it seems that this is quite enough for the band’s singer Tomas Lindberg and Adrian Erlandsson. Combine other elements of classic acts such as Disfear, God Macabre and Skitsystem and you get The Lurking Fear.

Known for its laid back attitude, California is the stoner of the western world. Known for being both the sides those who are so relaxed you think they might fall over and the out and out disgustingly rich, its a state that has a lot going on. Wanting to soak up the former type of vibe, musical virtuosos Chon holed themselves up at a beach house and recorded one of the most chilled out records you’ll hear and a perfect anthem for those who might not be digging the summer top forty on radio.

Metalcore, ah the lifesblood of the mid two thousands. What was once one of the biggest players in the Metal world, now seems to be falling somewhat by the wayside.

Broken Hope’s Mutilated and Assimilated – Whatever It Is, It’s Ugly And Its Pissed Off
21st June 2017, 14:03
Posted by Tristan

One of the darker routes of cinema, Horror is in its own interpretation the portrayal of that dark place, the place we never want to find ourselves in. A place where fans flirt with the idea of danger yet remain perfectly at ease in their seats. Taking this same ideaology into account Death Metal is very much a similar trip in a more aural sense. Depictions of graphic violence, horrendous creatures and a whole lot of nastiness, there’s nothing quite like it. Known to be a huge horror movie fan, one Jeremy Wagner has been fusing the two together for more than twenty five years with his Brutal Death Metal outfit Broken Hope. Returning with 2012’s lecherous offering that was Omen of Disease the band have recouped their creative effort to return for what could be their most horrendous release yet, Mutilated And Assimilated.
