After returning with the what many people deem slightly lack lustre Back To The Front, Entombed A.D. perhaps began on a slight misfire. Now releasing their second effort under the A.D. monicker the band have well and truly delivered the goods. Speaking to legendary Death Metal vocalist and all around nice guy L.G. Petrov we went in to see just exactly makes not only a Death Metal vocalist tick but release a truly fantastic new record.
Wasting no time in returning to their next release after their rebirth with the slightly lacking Back To The Front, Entombed A.D. given the new identity after the departure of guitarist Alex Hellid return once more to the grave with Dead Dawn. Whereas previous album ebbed and flowed with various sections enticing the ear whilst others left it slightly lacking Dead Dawn brings Entombed’s classic pioneering sound screaming into the modern day.
Christmas may have only just passed but here we are getting an early present from Aborted. Celebrating their landmark twentieth anniversary the band saw it fitting that they would commend such an occasion be releasing Termination Redux. Not quite the album that many are after but serves as a fantastic aperitif to the main course which will be dished out this spring.
And on the Twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me.. Once again a quick recap of some of the brilliant releases we have had so far.
And it’s brilliant.
In the modern day it seems that the idea of paramount importance is to remain apparent. Bringing technicality to the fore with the aid of new age technology band’s these days just don’t quite have the same soul as blood soaked groups of yesterday. Never bending at the knee of the modern trends Grave have been slowly lowering themselves six feet under. With this their eleventh full length the band haven’t had their claws dulled in the least.
Being rumoured for a while, it has now been widely reported that the label that brought you Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquility and Napalm Death has been acquired by Sony.
Poised to release their brand new album later this year Heart Of A Coward have been growing from strength to strength. With their previous release, the Danny Dyer loving Severance, reaching out to fans all over the world it has seen the band grow exponentially. At Tech Fest since it’s infancy the band have slowly been climbing up the musical food chain, leading to their absolutely incredible performance at Saturday’s headliner slot complete with an appearance of the Sweetness Owl! Before that however we were lucky enough to be able to speak to both the delightful Carl Ayers and Vishal Khetia about the new album, what it means to be head lining this year’s festival and how they have come to have such an extensive fanbase!
Having been around in the Death Metal arena now for twenty five absolutely destructive years Krisiun approach their anniversary as one of Brazil’s most ruinous exports with a brand new album, Forged In Fury. Have Camargo and co’s claws remained as razor sharp as they once were or has time dulled our feral cat’s claws…
Scandinavian metallers Black Temple have announced that their brand new album entitled It All Ends is set for an August release.
