Scare Don’t Fear, the new hip-hop – metal transgenre


Rap or hip-hop mixed with heavy metal is something dreaded because so many tried and failed at it.

Recently, Hacktivist has given me (and other people) hope for the success of the surgery. Now, Scare Don’t Fear comes with an album, Destroy | Rebuild, with an other perspective than that offered by above mentioned Hacktivist.

Instead of taking pure djent as a base, they seem to take in influences from metalcore, electronic and dance music, as well as a little bit of djent, too.

The rap is good, the scream is good, the music is good… Destroy | Read more

DIRT SPAWN DISEASE – ‘Under Indifference’ video available

It’s been quite some years since we‘ve heard of Dirt Spawn Disease and the lack of announcements is unreasonable and discouraging to say the least. It took the band five years for the release of the music video for ‘Under Indifference’ but finally the video is available for our viewing pleasure.

Therefore, I thought I should give a heads-up for this outstanding band, so consider this more of a suggestion than an actual review.

”The self-titled (unreleased) album by the Athens based DSD reeks professionalism and  experimentation, a great combination of slow yet heavy sludge riffs with the complexity and Read more

Tsaars give us an incredible Foreword of their potential

This melodic djenty mathcore band from Ukraine has been playing quite frequently in my ears these past months, when they released a track off their album Foreword, Nightmares.

Now that their full EP is out, with 3 songs along with their instrumental counterparts, and an aptly named entracte. They have two guest singers, who are both incredibly good: Sam Gitiban of Novållo and Jordan Ibarra of Aristeia, as well as their own singer, who sounds really great, too!

The album is relentless, fast, heavy, technical, and melodic while retaining some dissonant chords and harmonies.

Get that awesome album for … Read more
