Spanish thrash metal band, Reaktion, have released a music video for 'To Expect Nothing', it's the title track from their third album, which was released in June 2021.
With their latest album, entitled “To Expect Nothing”, Barcelona-based thrash metal band Reaktion completes what they have called “The Existence Trilogy”, after “Blackmailed Existence” (2016) and “Learning to Die” (2019). All the albums have been recorded, mixed and master at Axtudio, one of the most important metal studios in Catalonia.
The trilogy, or “thrashology” as they like to call it, consists of three parts: the first record talks about the idea of the death as something that has to happen. The second one, the second album, is based on, since we all have to die, how we can approach life. The last part, “To Expect Nothing” (2021), calls for a life of acceptance and stoicism.
'To Expect Nothing' was recorded, mixed and mastered at Axtudio (Barcelona, Spain).
Reaktion was formed in 2014 in Barcelona and is one of the most important thrash metal bands in Spain. They have toured Spain and Portugal several times, supporting Brazilian thrash metal band Nervosa and twice the classic German speed metal band SDI. They have played in many festivals including Vagos in Portugal, and their last gig was in Madrid supporting Artillery.
Following the release of their highly anticipated studio album Requiem via Loma Vista Recordings in February, Korn shares a new video for the next single "Worst Is on Its Way". The Craig Bernard and Culley Bunker-directed visual shows the band's high energy performance of the song in greyscale as individual members of the band are decomposed into animated particles with a series of visual effects. The 9-track album features the hit single "Start the Healing," which peaked at #1 on the Active Rock chart, in addition to the previously released tracks "Forgotten," which Rolling Stone described as "explosive" and "Lost In The Grandeur," which dropped as a final taste of Requiem just a few days before the record's release.
Recently described by GQ as "bold and iconoclastic" and released to high acclaim including recent features on the covers of Revolver and King Kong magazines, Requiem is produced by Korn and Chris Collier. Energized by a new creative process free of time constraints, the band was able to do things with Requiem that the past two decades haven't always afforded them, such as taking additional time to experiment together or diligently recording to analogue tape - processes which unearthed newfound sonic dimension and texture in their music.
Additionally, Korn is slated to take their live show across a worldwide run of headline festival and amphitheater tour dates kicking off this summer and running into the fall. The extensive tour begins with a headline performance at Daytona Beach's Welcome To Rockville festival before kicking off EU/UK dates in Amsterdam on May 25th. The tour will see stops in Berlin, London, Stockholm, Budapest and more before returning stateside for dates in Denver, Charlotte, Dallas, Boise and others. Tickets are currently available for purchase HERE.

"It's a declaration of intentions. You can't kill an idea. Good ideas are stubborn, just like us.

Art Gate Records are proud to announce melodic death metal act Death & Legacy as the new artist to join their international roster of talents.
Death & Legacy was founded in Zamora (Spain) in 2013, morphing their sound over the years to a more aggressive tone, forging a strong basis that is able to explode your head in to a million pieces.
The band takes inspiration from the structures and elements of classic metal with the extreme and modern vibes of the scene's newest generation, blending neck breaking riffs with clean and screaming vocals & growls from the abyss.
In the words of Iván Magdalena (CEO):
"I'm really passionate about this band. I have been following them for a while and I honestly think Death & Legacy are aiming to become one of the strongest line ups emerging from the Spanish underground metal scene. A shocking image with powerful anthems".
After releasing their last album “Inf3rno” and sharing stages with well known acts such as The Agonist, Saratoga, Leo Jimenez, Zenobia, Bloodhunter and Hynphernia, the band is already warming up for their upcoming album in 2023!
So we now know who the winners of the GMA Awards 2021 were, but to wrap up the event in it's entirety and bid farewell to 2021 and usher in 2022, we must turn to the last bunch of awards - 'Metal Release By Country / Area'.
Usually these would include the flag of the band's nation, but given the events in Afghanistan this year among other political turmoil, I felt it would be prudent to forgo any flags and just list the winners.... so without further ado here are the....

Art Gates Records are proud to introduce thrash metal act Grave Noise to the Art Gates Records family of artists. This 4-piece combo was formed back in 2013 and includes members from the cities of Burgos & Soria.
Their sound combines influences from the most raw and powerfully modern sounds of thrash metal. Based on international standards, these metalheads aim to create new anthems for the future of the genre. The band's new material features an evolution of their sound, taking the band members' skills several steps beyond.
The upcoming full length was produced by Alberto Marín (Hamlet, Def con Dos, Mónica Naranjo, Ankhara...), and mixed and mastered by Alex Cappa (Hamlet, Vita Imana, Bones of Minerva...) at Metropol Studios.
After touring in 2019 all over Spain presenting their first album “From The Cradle To The Road”; also performing at shows such as WOA Metal Battle & sharing stages with well known acts such as Crisix, Lujuria, Rosendo, Frenzy, Evil Killer and many others, the band is ready to release their brand new opus via Art Gates Records.
Spanish blackened technical death metal horde Thirteen Bled Promises will release "Foundation" on October 22nd via Lacerated Enemy Records. The EP's first single, "A Humanless War," is available now at youtu.be/BMFDeoTly08. Visit this location for single availability on other digital platforms.
Lacerated Enemy share their thoughts:-
“We are very pleased to announce that Thirteen Bled Promises has joined Lacerated Enemy family. Hailing from Madrid, Spain. Thirteen Bled Promises formed in 2006 creating their brand of technical brutal death metal. After releasing two successful albums, "Heliopause Fleets" (2012) and "The Black Legend" (2015), the band established a strong fan base in Europe and received great reviews for both."
While supporting numerous well known acts since the creation of the band, Thirteen Bled Promises was ready to enter the studio again to record another masterpiece of blackened technical death metal. The record brings its influences from progressive and technical song writing, while still accompanied by a blackened atmospheric quality that keeps the listener intrigued about what will come next.
Spanish modern melodic death metal outfit SynlakrosS have just released a new music video in the live session format, with the song 'Okami', included in their new album “0K4M1” which was released internationally last April through Blood Blast Distribution (Nuclear Blast).
Check it out here:- https://youtu.be/EWO0nOe0U1w
Being a thematic album, each song tells us a moment in the life of the half-human, half-alien creature called 0K4M1. This song, 'Okami', tells us the story that takes place when 0K4M1 reaches maturity and they begin to worship him as a god. The god of death. They start calling it Okami, which means wolf in Japanese, due to its fierceness and ability to kill.
The video was produced and recorded by Guillem Sampedro at Novo Estudios, the same place where the band recorded this album; recorded and produced by Facundo Novo. Soon they'll release a new live session, with the song 'Stardust', included in the new album “0K4M1”
