Chaos Divine - Colliding Skies

The most absorbing aspect of Colliding Skies is that it's a densely textured record in view of its smooth and approachable sound. In instrumentation, every aspect sets a well defined and accessible trajectory in progressive metal. It is a melodic vehicle for expressive vocal arrangements which project an emphasis that readily uplift the listening experience. Above all else, Australia's Chaos Divine surely aim for consistency in this latest effort.

Carcass - Banned In Malaysia Due To Lyrical Content

It's not the first time a metal band is banned in Malaysia. In 2013, Lamb Of God were forced to cancel a show in Kuala Lumpur because their performances were found to infringe on religious sensitivities and cultural values of Malaysian society. Now Carcass are taking the heat even after they played in Malaysia last year.

Sulphur Aeon

Sulphur Aeon critically acclaimed demo tape Sulphur Psalms was released in August 2010, followed by the Deep Deep Down They Sleep 7inch (released in May 2012), a foretaste of the band's debut album Swallowed By The Ocean's Tide (December 2012). Swallowed By The Ocean's Tide received massive worldwide praise by both the fans and the media as being one of the very few innovative and pioneering death metal album of recent years with its deathly melange of ferocious riffs, ultra-precise drums (the fast way) and sepulchral incantatory chants, combined with a high level of musical competence and song-writing to the most haunting and wicked death metal.
