RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Life's December - Fatigue - Album CoverDeathcore can be disturbing in more ways than one. I always like the sense of dissonance and unease taking hold of you when you start listening to their tune. The Swiss band Life’s December are very good at that.

Their upcoming album Fatigue, signed to Dark Wings records, mixes delicately airy melodies with djent heavy, totally brutal attacks on your consciousness. All this is crowned by growls and screams, interspersed with breakdowns, tremolo picking – the works. The way they switch from an ambient, almost atmospheric setting straight to full blown, heavy growls in a heartbeat is remarkably well done. Need a demonstration? Have a look at Construct, one of the best tracks on the album. [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

And this just so happened with the Italian band Banned From Hell and their second album Fall of Humanity, signed to Sliptrick Records. The description says Horror Metal and this, too, got my attention. And indeed, there is this hint of master Dracula sitting in the great hall playing on his organ from hell. Whilst waiting for his next victim to arrive.

But what have we got ourselves?

Complex, meaty riffs and solos mixing with a Scandinavian flavored slab of Melodic Death Metal. Throw in some deathcore elements and mix with Progressive Metal from the dark side of the moon. Even the somewhat ghastly use of ELA-flavored keyboards grouchily mix with the rest of this #metal brew.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!
