Pre-emptive Strike 0.1 - Through the Astral Cold

2017-03-24 (News)

Hammering high-tempo hits like "More than Flesh", "Harbinger" or album opener "Killing Protocols" have a prime directive to move your body seemingly coded into them - while more mid-tempo songs such as "Pyrrhic Victory" and "Phantom" slow things down to provide the perfect accompaniment.
For this, their 6th full album, Pre-emptive Strike 0.1 step away from the themes of their last 2 albums "Epos V" and "T.A.L.O.S." – which celebrated both Greek mythology and traditional Greek instrumentation – and revisit instead the same sci-fi tropes that characterized both their earlier 3 albums and "Eternal Masters"… over the top of some of the most stunningly powerful songwriting and programming they have ever produced. For all fans of harsh-EBM/dark electro, "Through The Astral Cold" is a landmark release that through the ages will surely come to stand as an absolute classic album of the genre.

Aeverium - Time

2017-03-20 (News)

On the second album "Time", Modern-Metal group Aeverium finds the perfect balance between anthemic symphonic sounds and contemporary harshness.
The second album "Time" is elevating the unique fusion of styles to the next level. The hard parts were turned up a notch, the transition into the symphonic parts is executed even more smoothly and the explosive fusion of emotion, aggression and cinematic pomp is all the more intense. Furthermore, the hard riffs in tracks like "Hunted" or "What About Me" are grounded on a pulsating electronic foundation that reminds of the early days of bands like Linkin Park or Disturbed.
