Mauce_nlFestival-2016-A4_68cWe could never have dreamed about what The Metal Resource was going to be like when we started in June 2006. We took a private spare domain (mauce.nl) of one of the founders and installed a content management system (CMS). Just for fun… just to play a bit. Now, 10 years later, we’re no longer ‘playing’ but are a serious webzine with an international team working their socks off. We want to thank all bands, event organizers, labels and venues we’ve worked with the past 10 years. To celebrate our 10 year anniversary we are proud to announce that we will celebrate this with a metal festival on June 18th 2016! Thanks to all!

Six bands will perform this evening: Pantokrator (SE), My Silent Wake (UK), The Royal (NL), La-Ventura (NL), Undawn (NL), The Memory Remains (NL).

The Swedish death metal band Pantokrator returns after nine years to the Netherlands, to play an exclusive show at our anniversary festival.

Bringer_Of_Terror_6b3By now, metal from Brazil is not very surprising to many.  Azorrague, translating to whip/scourge/lash/punishment, is the latest Brazilian band to catch my attention and one of several from the city of Curitiba.  Bringing their own combination of death metal and thrash, Azorrague have unleashed their second full length album Bringer of Terror.

If you’re looking for metal in Brazil, Curitiba certainly seems to be a good place to start.  Bands like Efrata, Hawthorn, Maestah, and Doomsday Hymn all come to mind when that city is named and now add Azorrague to that list.  From information I could find, Azorrague started back in 2007, and has two previous releases, the ep Lies Empire in 2008 and the full length Die With Us in 2011.  For Bringer of Terror, the band recorded at Silent Music Studio and enlisted Karim Serri (Doomsday Hymn, Maestah and others) for production, mixing, and mastering.

my epic‘Wives’ Tale’ is the third in a four-part series that goes behind the music of My Epic’s new EP “Viscera.” which is released on May 6th through Facedown Records. The ‘Behind Memoir’ video can be see below.

The captivating new release from My Epic sees the band building on the pivotal momentum of previous releases while still treading new ground musically and thematically. With “Viscera,” My Epic reference the Latin term for the inner organs as the thread that runs through the tracks. The aspect of each song alluding to a human emotion tied to physicality makes“Viscera,” My Epic’s most heavily themed release to date. Continue reading »

crashantidemonThe Brazilian death metal band Antidemon recently was interviewed by Veja magazine and after the interview was published in issue 2478, the band issued a statement about some distortions and misrepresentations of facts that were printed in the article. According to the article, the band’s tours were funded by tithes and contributions to Crash Church, which for all who know the band and church, is entirely false.  Promoters in the various cities and countries the band plays shows in are responsible for arranging the details around the band’s travels. A correction is expected to be published in the Errata section of the next issue of Veja. Read more in the article here (In Portugese).

dangerous minds logoOnTheAttack Records is pleased to announce that Los Angeles hardcore band Dangerous Minds has joined its family of bands, and will be releasing its long awaited debut album “Blood Diamonds” on June 21. Musically forceful and lyrically steadfast about the band’s convictions, Blood Diamonds combines heavy hardcore grooves with complex metalcore stop-start rhythm structures. Dangerous Minds’ innovative brand of hardcore stands on the shoulders of Terror and Sleeping Giant, which is befitting since the band was founded by Dynasty guitarist Marcel Muniz. Stream the song ‘Blood Diamonds’ here:

Dangerous Minds features Marcel Muniz (vocals), Jeremy Tudon (guitar), Michael Massey (guitar), Alan Litrell (bass) and Danny Perez (drums).
