Feel the tension rising? We do, let's see. May, June, July, oh August.
Anyway there has been some more activity with BOA, with more bands announced and the M2TM finals truly underway. Confirmed so far from this lot include (days included - all on the Hobgoblin New Blood stage):
Friday - Modern Metallers, Mutagenocide, Canadians Diatessaron and Welsh horde Piss Viper. Saturday - Codex Alimentarius (Groove/Thrash), Akarusa Yami (Prog/Tech) and Sumer (Post-Prog) Sunday - Taken By The Tide (Hardcore), Luxembourg’s death thrashers Scarred and Northern Irish hardcore monsters By Any Means.
Focusing on the SL stage, Messiah's Kiss will be playing on the Firday whereas on the Saturday, classic Thrash maniacs Annihilated will do the deeds. Joining them will be Death Metal antagonists Ageless Oblivion.
Cyber-Tech Metal futurists The Izuna Drop are shaping up to play on the Sunday, alongside the likes of Doom horde Alunah.
As for the Jagermeister Stage, Friday will see The Parallax Method deliver the goods, whilst one band who was included on our 'Tea, Crumpets & English Metal' compilation will make their voices heard on the Friday as well, that band being Winter Storm.
Saturday sees the former Status Quo support band Knock Out Kaine drop in on the Jagermeister stage and so this will be a momentous occasion. Moreover on the Sunday Blind Haze and Irish group Snowblind will also make their Jagermeister Stage appearances.
Death/slam/core metallers The Juliet Massacre will release their new album “Human Abuse” on May 26th. In anticipation, the band is streaming the entire album a week ahead of its release. Listen the new songs at this link.
Vocalist Antomega shares the following about the new album: “Its long gestation period has meant that the successor to ‘Pray for an Afterlife’ appears to be faster, more brutal, more intense, but also more deep. We have written about how much the mankind likes to abuse and destroy everything, even itself, and how all this is leading us to an inevitable collapse. These are all tangible things that each of us savor every day and against which ordinary people can do little or nothing. ‘Human Abuse’ can be considered as an anthem to what actually the mankind should never be. We are totally convinced that this new work will satisfy all fans of the genre and, in some way, will satisfy even the most discerning ears”.
Recorded and mixed at Underroom Studios, 3 international guests (Julien Truchan from Benighted, Radim from Spasm and Alessandro Falà from Sawthis) and the precious collaboration of Gozer Vision on the artwork, “Human Abuse” is probably one of the most interesting extreme album of the year.
Pre-order available on the official merchstore.
