Darkness Divided is a Christian Metalcore band which originated as a worship act at church youth retreats, where Gerard Mora (lead unclean vocals), Christopher James Mora (guitar & backing unclean vocals) and Joseph Mora (bass) played songs in the Jeremy Camp and Third Day style.
How painful : a Metal band with its first 3 albums (2001's Revolution Revolución, 2003's Confession and 2005's One Nation Underground) out on Roadrunner Records...and there's not even one in my collection, nor any of the albums which followed (2008's Enigma, 2010's Dead New World and 2012's Epidemia), and that with the sales figures of the two first albums already exceeding a million copies! I guess I' have to make some kind of mending, by relating to you the band's history in a nut-shell?
Since Arch Enemy and Walls Of Jericho it’s been proved that female fronted bands are also really big and heavy when it comes to metal. Well, Sister Sin is also one, great band who the vocals are lead by a female. This band comes with their Dirty Metal sound from the capital of Sweden. One of the biggest European countries which has great metal bands. Sister Sin is a powermetal band from which Sweden counts a lot.
Third full length release by this eclectic duo, who mix up some heavy riffs backed up by a lot of prorgamming , clean vocals (by the bunny) and screams by surprise surprise ‘the bear”. Musically The bunny the bear present us bubblegum pop spiced up with some heavy guitars, on some of the songs thisworks rater well like on the title track “ food chain” or “ so smooth so appealing” but just as often it goes teeibly wrong like on “Pale green eyes”…..
The people at Victory Records really have a nice taste of music, concentrating on bands which are musically special, and somewhat “out-of-the-box”. Originally concentrating on the Hardcore and Punk genres, the guys have meanwhile broadened that palate to include bands from other genres...but at all times, there's still that somewhat special side to the bands, which stems from a will to bring something slightly more progressive.
With the signing of the Canadian Erimha, Victory Records has proven once again that they aren't narrow-minded at all. We know the label of hardcore, punk, screamo and emo bands, but Reign Through Immortality, is a real metal record that stands somewhere between black metal and death metal. The most remarkable thing about it is its production. For a new band, every detail sounds crystal clear, lifting the album to a higher level.
Sweden has always been the breeding ground of many great metal bands. One that has been taken from under the dust is the female fronted rock 'n roll band Sister Sin. Ten years ago, they released their debut record, called Dance Of The Wicked. But as the band didn't get the success they deserved back then, the American label Victory Records decided to re-release the album.
Whether The Bunny The Bear is the newest electronic DJ sensation or the newest rock duo, that's up to you to decide after having listened to their second record, Stories.
UK’s based Continents is a relatively new band to the scene but since their start in 2010 they made a lot of buzz and with their hard working party attitude they're only getting bigger!
