Finland's FORESEEN to release their debut full-length album

Our favourite thrash-hardcore crossoverist from Helsinki, Finland shared some news about the forthcoming debut full-length album.

Following several successful EPs, including 2013's well received Structural Oppression, Finland's FORESEEN HKI now break into the international metal scene with their debut LP, Helsinki Savagery. An explosive burst of rawcrossover, the band effortlessly fuse the 1980s iterations of US thrash and hardcore to create a merciless album of absolute jawbreakers. A distinctly Finnish rawness and hostility, that's been a hallmark of the countries incredible hardcore punk bands since the early '80s, pervades the LP.

Interview with Alex, HELL SMELL recording studios

by marcs77

Today when tons of music is consumed (what a bad word!) digitally, one, like me, comes to wonder whether there are still kids who know what credits for producing, recording, mixing, mastering are all about. Personally, these credits normally printed, just before the lengthy thanks lists on the back-covers, inside booklet or inlays of CDs, have always been an important source to understand the sound (not talking about genre here) I could expect from one band and something as important for my music knowing and education as the songs themselves or other facts related to the band.
Nowadays I can go and download (legally or illegally) one track or a complete record off the internet, I get a folder including music, a .jpg digital artwork and, perhaps, if I've downloaded the album legally the digital booklet.
Have you ever cared about those people who work for and with the band to make that music recording in your computer come to (digital)life?
The captivating yet complex universe of music recording/production is a world alone that could easily find any uninitiated stumbling across lots of never heard of before technical terms and a whole new vocabulary to struggle with to get some basic+ understanding of the thing.
We hooked up with Alex Gavazzi, founder and owner of Hell Smell studios based in Roma, Italy, to get some insights on this world, to know how he got started, his personal influences, and being the dude a musician himself, to talk about his melodic punk hardcore band Bedtime For Charlie, that earlier this year put out a new EP titled “Morningwood”.

UNEARTH announce new album “Watchers Of Rule”, Touring Europe now!

We here at gotnarve-zine (earlier on at the times of Truesidemusic) have been looking closely at the
moves of Boston's metaller UNEARTH and got to interviews the guys different times but I personally lost note of what the dudes have been doing since the release of "Darkness In the Light" in 2011.
Since that 2011 the hardworking quartet didn't waste their time and kept playing shows, touring and among these and other things writing/recording the stuff for the new record.
Here comes the news from Century Media headquarters about the new album and the European tour they're currently into.

New England Metal pioneers UNEARTH have announced “Watchers of Rule” to be released via Century Media on November 3rd, 2014 in Europe. Produced by Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, Devildriver), this marks the band's six full length LP in their decorated sixteen year tenure.

UNEARTH will now hit European soil on the Hell On Earth Tour 2014 and this time the band is heading out with friends Shadows Fall, The Acacia Strain, War Of Ages and Pay No Respect in support. See all tour dates below.
