An Interview With : Tomasso Riccardi (Fleshgod Apocalypse)
11th April 2016, 15:45
Posted by Tristan

 Fortune favours the bold or so the saying goes. Unlike anything that has really come out of the Metal scene Fleshgod Apocalypse are masters of innovation. Taking an ambitious idea of moulding  two polarising genres into a symbiosis of aweinspiring inventiveness. Arguably their most ambitious work conceptually as well as musically, King sees a milestone under the band’s already intimidating back catalogue. Their latest paradoxical combination of Death Metal and Classical makes for a beautiful, cinematic and absolutely enrapturing listen. We were lucky enough to be able to sit down with just one of the many maestros at the Fleshgod Apocalypse helm Tomasso Riccardi. Outlining the albums immediate concept as well as its tertiary metaphorical commentary on society, we uncover what King truly stands for and why it is one of the most daring musical compositions to come out of Death Metal yet.

Having been welcomed back to the Thrash Metal arena what seems like a lifetime ago with previous release Worship Music the silence will soon be broken to reveal the next stage in Anthrax’s plan. Back in November whilst on tour with Slayer we had the absolute delight of speaking with Joey Belladonna. Focusing primarily on brand new scintillating effort For All Kings, we spoke to the singer about what the recording process was like when creating the album. Giving a detailed account of what we can come to expect from a singing standpoint as well as what it was like incorporating new guitarist John Donais on the new record whilst also discuss classic Thrash origins and returns. Set to take the world by storm with For All Kings to be released in just two days time we welcome the new age of our five kings, this is Anthrax at their best.

Album Review : Fleshgod Apocalypse – King
4th February 2016, 15:30
Posted by Tristan

Combining the cinematic within a Metal environment has always been a diligent task that many have undertaken and fallen short. Having deep rooted foundations in both genres of Classical and Death Metal, Fleshgod Apocalypse have teetered between the two combining both polarising categories to a slightly clumsy interplay, until now. Carving a conceptual niche with their previous album Labyrinth the band are no strangers to the classic story. Bringing the term Rock Opera to a tongue in cheek fruition the band have assembled together for the oeuvre that is King.

Album Review : Nile – What Should Not Be Unearthed

In the world of music, Death Metal itself as a genre is a niche market to say the least, though over the years it has garnered a fierce and eclectic following. With a plethora of sub genres being formed, there seemed to be one such sub genre that was up for grabs, Egyptian themed Technical Death Metal. A deserved accolade goes to none other than South Carolina’s Nile.

Album Review : Lamb Of God – VII : Sturm Und Drang
24th July 2015, 11:00
Posted by Tristan

Triumph over adversity, the old adage couldn’t be more apt. Bands like the Richmond quintet only come around once every decade. Consistently releasing punishing, groove oriented metal Lamb of God are one of the most forward thinking bands of our time. Often labelled as a Pantera copycat, which personally I feel to be completely wrong and derogatory of the entire Lamb of God ethos. Combine their already reliant back catalogue that the band pertain, with the now very public trial that Randy Blythe went through after the man was held in Prague, following an alleged case of manslaughter. Essentially  the most important album of their career, VII : Sturm Und Drang is make or break
