A quick roundup of what’s out and what’s coming soon, and a free promo for you to download!
Hostile Defiance is exactly what its title suggests. A 42-minute full on attack, the thrash faction hold nothing back as they unleash hell as only they can, yet with more variety and dynamics than ever before. “We wanted to sonically progress, incorporating more melodic elements in the music as well as more rhythmic variety,” states vocalist Mem Von Stein. “We are a lot braver trying to create an up to date and relevant sound that can easily stand alone in today’s thrash landscape without sounding trite or a throwback, and we’re challenging the listener not to get too comfortable with one specific feel, tempo or pace.”
Pre-orders in a load of formats are now available, and you can check out the title track below.
We Are The Catalyst
The new album by fast-rising Swedish rock / alternative metal act We Are The Catalyst – Ephemeral – is out today. It explores depression, the darkness within us all, hope, loss, dystopian world views and existential themes. Most pronounced on the album is the sense of being just a small cog in the machinery that is the universe. All the struggles, strives, hopes and dreams we all have are generally nothing in the greater scheme of things.
In only a few years, We Are The Catalyst has managed to stir up quite the buzz. They did their second show ever on tour in China, followed by touring the UK and playing several festivals in 2015. The band was formed in November of 2012 with the goal of being a light in the dark for those who need it the most.
Have a listen to one of the songs from it in the video for “Over Pale Waters”.
2 Wolves is set to release their fourth studio album …Our Fault in April 12th 2019 via Inverse Records. This gothic metal band is from South Karelia, Finland. Since their formation in 2010, the band has released three studio albums. With elements from melodic death metal and doom metal, and inspiration from Finnish melancholy and nature, 2 Wolves create their sound.
The album was recorded, mixed & mastered by Saku Moilanen at Deep Noise Studios.
Niko Pennanen comments:
We are really happy with the upcoming album and this first single gives a good picture of what to expect from the album. It may be a little bit different than the old records, but it will be our best album!
