Long Beach, CA hardcore outfit ’92 returns with ‘Above The Law’, the second single from the upcoming self-title EP set for release next month via Rude Records! If you’re looking for a mix of hardcore, gangster rap and G-Funk, look no further!

In case you missed this when they released their debut single a couple of weeks ago, the duo Gradience brings a totally unique sound combining tasty rap metal bars with grim, explosive black metal into an intense blow of fresh air!

Welcoming events that try to bring something different and out of the norm to Finland, we went to the second night of the club festival Hellsinki Techfest with Sirkuit Preiker, Khroma, Balance Breach and Hacktivist back in September for some killer music and high energy!

Nonpoint, one of our photographers’ favorite bands to see live, made a stop at The Eclectic Room in Angola, Indiana on their “The Milliion Watts Tour 2023” and with the help of (hed)pe, Sumo Cyco and VRSTY turned the night in an absolute barn burner!

Innovative alternative anomaly Kid Bookie revealed the first taste of new music with the video single ‘AI (SAVE YOURSELF)’, a track from the upcoming album ‘Songs For The Living // Songs For The Dead’, set for release in the summer of 2024 via Marshall Records!

Slope announced their new album ‘Freak Dreams’ to be released in February 2024 via Century Media Records and shared another video single with ‘It’s Tickin’! Fans of Beastie Boys, Rage Against The Machine and especially that old school sound of early Red Hot Chili Peppers, may want to pay heed…

The summer festival season is over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of exciting fests happening over the next couple of months this autumn/winter in Finland with Helsinki Techfest and Kaamos Metal Cruise already this weekend, HKI SKEPU FEST V, Lost In Music, Steelchaos, Hellsinki Industrial Festival 2023, Fall Fest 2023, Black Box Mikkeli, Melancholy Mass Festival 2023 and Unholy Winter Fest!

Shinedown, Three Days Grace and From Ashes to New rolled into town on a Thursday night for the “Revolutions Live Tour”, and they lit the house up and burned it down in front of a sold out crowd at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum!

Ten56. released ‘Downer part.2’, filled with songs that have a metalcore sound with rap influences similar to Landmvrks. 20 years ago we had nu metal, and now we have something you could call the “nu metalcore” sound, a progression that most definitely will have its own share of fans. Released via Out of Line Music!

2023 starts off with quite the bang with new releases from VV, Anti-Flag, Imperium Dekadenz, Turmion Kätilöt, Katatonia, Kiberspassk, …and Oceans, Obituary, Suasion, Dropout Kings and Vėlių Namai!
