Kollaps - THE HIRSCH EFFEKT

If progressive bands have one duty to fulfill, it's to keep the surprises coming. THE HIRSCH EFFEKT have already defied the odds to some degree: singing in their native German and seldom conforming to any particular sub-strand of post-djent heaviness, the Hannover trio have become one of the most well-respected tech-metal bands around by never ...

Betrayal - CORDYCEPS

Another day, another death metal kicking to savor. CORDYCEPS already sounded like the finished article on their 2017 EP "Black Blood Butchery", but "Betrayal" is a far more devastating statement of intent.
