A highly complex construct of math metal, crushing death elements and virtuosic shoegaze moments - Letters From The Colony create more than just songs. The young progressive death metal architects from Borlänge in Sweden are building tracks that are able to catapult them right into the league of bands such as Meshugahh, Opeth or Gojira with their first album only just on the horizon.

Avenged Sevenfold - The Stage

Avenged Sevenfold have changed over the years and even though that ain’t a bad thing, they did get more recognition (and money) than they ever deserved. They are not as good as some may want us to believe (“big (e)mags” PR labels etc.) and not that bad as many other acts of the 00s that made a career out of nothing. Then again, that’s life and especially when it comes to music itself, it seems that nowadays PR is more important than the music itself.
