Light Unseen have filled  their debut album Visions of Archetype and Apocalypse  with their brand of “deathgrind for the soul”, resulting in a grinding, pummeling listen for those so inclined.

Light Unseen began in 2016 as a one man project from Christian “Shun” Marthiljohni who decided that he wanted to step away from being the only Christian in a band and use his talents to praise the Lord through the heaviest of genres.  Shun later went on to hire Adrian Trevino on drums and the two man project released a demo in 2017, Eve of the Day of the Lord, which is also available from Nosral Recordings, a label quickly becoming the place to find Christian artists producing the heaviest of metal.  Visions of Archetype and Apocalypse  incorporates the three songs from the demo and adds six more, one of which features vocals from Matthew Plunkett of the death/grindcore band Abated Mass of Flesh.

Light Unseen waste no time jumping right into things on the album.  “Imago Dei”, one of the tracks from their demo opens things up and immediately bursts into a grinding fast riff punctuated by Adrian Trevino’s machine gun like drum work.  Vocals are a deeply growled and somewhat intelligible even for novices to the genre, which is a bit surprising as I was expecting nothing but pig squeals and the usual uninterpretable growling.  Presumably,  Shun Marthiljohni chose this approach so listeners could actually hear and understand the message in the music.  Much like a punk rock song, “Imago Dei” clocks in around a minute and half but manages to cram probably 3 minutes worth of music note in during that time.

Tunge Byrder – Is a christian black metal project runned by Shadow Puncher‘s frontman Max Kevin Ølstøren – he checked in with the following:.

“But the heck, im gonna share this with you all now. As you see i have also a passion for black metal so im gonna make a unblack metal side project to publish albums for free downloads on bandcamp etc and there will be no physical cds etc of this side project. The bm collab with timoratus will be the only one for shadow puncher and some bm songs on the new release till spring will be the only album featuring some bm songs. After the new release till spring there will be only death metal etc on this project and my side project will be bm featuring some bad drawings (still a newbie on paintings) and some photos of the wonderful nature we have here in my county on the album covers. So the side project is most likely gonna be unsigned as a choice for have it as a independent

Famed for their gutsy and resolute blue-collared anthems, The Tossers are stepping in a different direction by releasing two songs for the holiday season – an original, ‘Merry Christmas,’ and the traditional New Year’s poem ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ penned by Robert Burns in 1788.

Guitarist Mike Pawula explains,‘Merry Christmas’ is a song that Tony (Duggins, mandolinist and lead vocalist) wrote a few years ago that he had been kicking around and we planned to put it on tape. Once we did that, it felt like we should record a companion song so, naturally, the classic ‘Auld Lang Syne’ seemed like the perfect fit. We have never done anything for the Seasons like this and hope people enjoy it.”

Duggins adds, “God Bless you all, and may each and every one of you have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.” Continue reading »

The Swedish melodic progressive metal band Darkwater will release their new album “Human” on March 1st in Europe and North America via Ulterium Records. The album will be available on CD, 2LP and digital.

“Human” won’t leave fans of melodic metal or progressive metal disappointed. The songs are heavier, more melodic and atmospheric than before and the band worked really hard on tweaking the ten songs and over 76 minutes of playing time into perfection. Jacob Hansen (Evergrey, Volbeat, Amaranthe) was chosen to mix and master the album and he did a fantastic job which resulted in the best sounding Darkwater album to date.

The lyrics of the album welcomes you into a world of you and me, how we affect the world around us and the struggles we deal with as humans. Continue reading »
