RockmusicRaider Review - Ninjaspy - Spüken - Album CoverSome bands are very laid back in their approach to releasing their music. Especially the jazzier and progressively minded ones. And sometimes you wonder where this is all going. Then others just give you this impression at first, just to drop a sneaky karate kick to the back of your head. And let loose with a vengeance on a colossal Alternative and Progressive Metal stage. Spüken, the new full length of the Canadian metallers Ninjaspy, will do exactly that for you. Chaotic and somewhat unhinged grungy-punk energy outbursts included. 

But the first item that really got to me was the somewhat bizarre and strangely fascinating album cover.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Newsflash: A New Breed by Crucify The Faith!

Apple Music Badge

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Crucify The Faith - New Breed - Album CoverWoe! Now I feel crucified, too. And it is not the normal culprits of the ritual metal department that did the deed this time. No, Metalcore did it, of all things. 

I just finished with the newest EP New Breed from the Finnish gig Crucify the Faith. And let me tell ya, I already yearn for seconds, it is that good.

Talk about furious crunch, this band really puts the pedal to the proverbial metal. This sounds (and feels) like someone dropped a little extra into my energy drink of the day. And now I am feeling the effects going at 320 mph.

However, it is not only speed and whacking a metal baseball bat around your ears.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Newsflash: The Enigma Set Before Us!

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Set Before Us - Enigmas - Album CoverWe did not feature a helluva lot of Metalcore lately. Mainly because there was nothing juicy enough to emerge from the depths of this scream laden genre. And frankly, many a band just does that: Throwing a skeletal version of a melody at the crowd and scream everyone to the ground. Not that this will in any way enhance their chance of winning the fluffy green muppet monster to impress their audience. Apart from the die-hard fans, that is.

Well, light has appeared at the end of the tunnel and let’s just hope that this is not the freight train heading towards us. The Swedish band Set Before Us graces us with their newest blip called Enigmas that just got released this November of 2016.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Enfeeble - Moments of Tranquility - Album CoverWhoever said that there is only beer and bretzels in good, old Germany? Complete with lederhos’n and holzhack’n? Well, wake up and smell the … #metal.

German melodic thrash and metalcore metallers ENFEEBLE released their newest album Momentum of Tranquility in October 2015. And there is nothing tranquil about the album, I can assure you. First emerging as The Thrashcans (OMG!…), then transforming into ENFEEBLE back in the mid ’00s, this newest concoction is their 2nd full-length album so far (or the third, depending on the source and how you look at it). Their #metal brand includes the traditional screams and clear voice passages, mixed into melodic interludes.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
