That’s probably why I’ve been ignoring it in favor of techno. The band’s new CD (scheduled for realease in 2011) is titled Reckless and Relentless (Sumerian Records). Never mind at those Roman nonsense satur venter non studet libenter!
With the passage of time, it gets harder and harder to stand out in a given genre. This is especially true of the metalcore subgenres. So how, after so much time and so many bands, does a metalcore act create interesting music? Of Gods and Destroyers knows how, and a listen or two of their demo answers the question neatly in 5 tracks.
For example, you may want a partner that is loyal, attractive, supportive, funny, smart and can dance. Basically you are looking to capture and clarify to yourself precisely what kind of partner you would like to attract. The more clarity you have, the greater your focus.

If anything, I learned a lot from playing his parts. It’s a good feeling, man.
Riding the lines between genres has been Moonspell’s forte for a very long time. Has genre-ambiguity been the band’s goal from the beginning, or was it simply something that emerged from playing?
Polish death metal Veterans, Vader, has revealed a plethora of new details regarding their new album “Necropolis,” which is scheduled to be released on August 21.
The members include Big Mike-vocals, Jeremy-guitar, Josh-bass, and Shawn-drums. You know you are not listening to a PG-13 band when they dedicate songs like “I Hate Your Face” and “Serial Killer Love Song” to their exes. Their music is smart. It’s raunchy. But for the most part, it is what rock and roll is supposed to be. It is really fun.
