If there’s a most unlikely metal genre to evolve further, it’s Death Metal. It’s often the same old traditional beat that will get those old metalheads all excited. Bands going full-speed melancholia DM do still appear to this day. And they’re welcome over here more often than not.1) But that section of the deathly ones already got a lot of coverage and there’s only so much we can report. So, where’s that wind of change, those new vibes that would excite us to no end?

Well, luckily, we got ourselves new bands that will take their art to a … [...] Click to raid more!

Science of Disorder is one of those bands. The ones that lurch into action with some promise, and then take their sweet time to produce more material.

A ride on the wild side. That’s what the human soul sometimes fancies. It’s one of the reasons why people disappear on dangerous trips into the wilderness.1) Or they enjoy some bungie fun whilst jumping off perfectly fine bridges. Or – again – some find solace in discovering the scariest rollercoasters and ride them until the good doctor arrives.
