Late 2008, bruno entered the band as the new bassist and they continued rehearsing and creating. Their first demo of 4 songs was born at spring of 2009.

SHITTY LIFE























"switch off your head"
Year:  2018
Country:  Italy
City:  Parma
Label:  Spastic Fantastic
Format:  LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  19 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk Rock

















Sometimes we just need hooks, even in the genres we typically don’t think of as being defined by their catchiness. I went into Italian quintet Shitty Life’s new LP Switch Off Your Head expecting some pretty straightforward fastcore, but instead I got a bouncing dose of “power punk.” With mostly clean power chord garage riffs, some amazingly recorded drums, and raucous, pissed-off vocals, Shitty Life does nothing new in the absolute best way possible. This is what I want when I think of the phrase “pop punk”; just really infectious, well-written punk earworms that even non-hardcore fans will love, and that wouldn’t sound out of place if they came on at a party. But the pop sensibilities don’t prevent the band from baring their aggression; for pretty much the whole album you get the sense that these tightly wound tunes are about to burst at the seams, a vicious explosion of aggression struggling against its candy coating. Switch Off Your Head is a simple album, but can serve a variety of purposes: afternoon pick-me-up, skate session soundtrack, friendly fist fight music; everything except calming down in any shape or form (*Review by Jack Davison ).

CHOKEHOLD























"with this thread i hold on"
Year:  2019
Country:  Canada
City:  Hamilton, OT
Label:  Good Fight
Format:  CD
Tracks:  10
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Metalcore
















Chokehold is a canadian vegan and political hardcore punk band from Hamilton, Ontario. They were active from 1990 to 1996, and came together again for a reunion tour in 2015 and 2017 until nowadays. "Originally it was just going to be a few shows but after those shows, a few of us really wanted to see what it would be like to write a new Chokehold song in present day," says Chokehold vocalist Chris Logan says No Echo. We're chatting because the band will be releasing With This Thread I Hold On, their first new album in close to 25 years. Formed all the way back in 1990, the Canadian outfit has influenced countless bands throughout the years, both musically and politically. In all of the years since Chokehold first appeared, the state of the world is arguably at its worst right now, something not lost on Chris. "It just happened to coincide with shit hitting the fan politically and socially so it definitely inspired and gave us a lot to work with lyrically. So ya, the state of the world has made it really easy to write punk rock songs these days". The new album follows Chokehold's half a dozen EPs and two prior full-lengths, Prison of Hope (1993) and Content with Dying (1995). The cover art for "With This Thread I Hold On" (seen below) features images of pharmaceutical drugs, a crucifix, a television, among other symbols. I ask Chris if that visual concept represents the overall lyrical direction of the new record. "For the most part, yes, it does represent many topics on the record, but also the overall theme of the album in general. Highly recommended for those fans of: Hatebreed, Snapcase, Earth Crisis, Raised Fist or Vision Of Disorder. (*Review by Carlos Ramirez ).

BEATEN TO DEATH
























"agronomicon"
Year:  2018
Country:  Norway
City:  Oslo
Label:  Mas-kina
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  22 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Grindcore

















modern grindcore band from from Oslo, Norway. Formed in 2011. Beaten to Death was formed in 2011 by Martin Rygge, Tommy Hjelm (both normally heard handling guitar-duties in Oslo-based metalcore quartet Insense) and drummer Christian Svendsen (also the relentless drumming machine in Tsjuder, The Cumshots, Grimfist and Gothminister), with Mika Martinussen and vocalist Anders Bakke (the latter well-known in the metal community after years of fronting the mighty She Said Destroy) completing the line-up. On September 26th 2011 the band released their first album on Mas-Kina Recordings, consisting of 9 songs, 1 second of silence, and 18 min 36 sec of gritty but strangely catchy grindcore - all recorded 100 % live at the bands rehearsal room during one weekend (except the vocals which were recorded a few days later). Machine gun drums, ferocious guitars, snarling bass and intense vocals is the foundation of the B2D-sound. Add hauntingly beautiful harmonies and a brutal groove, and what you have is an infectious collection of deadly grind you won’t be able to sit still to, no-matter what your taste in music happens to be.

AFTER THE BURIAL























"evergreen"
Year:  2019
Country:  US
City:  Minneapolis, MI
Label:  Sumerian
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  9
Time:  45 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Metalcore















Having already reviewed Whitechapel this year, it seems only fitting that a new After The Burial record would come along so soon after. Whilst not being in the same sphere of musical style at all both bands are at a similar point in their careers. After The Burial much like Whitechapel are also absolute masters of their sound a band that has remained pretty much unrivaled in terms of musicianship and influence.

Evergreen (Sumerian Records) is the band’s latest opus and feels and sounds like ATB have always done but with also just enough tweaks to keep things interesting. There is no wild shift in style with that heavy Meshuggah influence still present but this time there is way more emphasis on groove and yes shudder to the thought actual hooks.

 ‘In Flux’ is a massive, huge statement of an opening song, this immediately took me back to the album In Dreams (also Sumerian) with that riff and pinch harmonic refrain becoming embedded in my skull from the off. This kind of progressive, tech metal can admittedly wear thin sometimes so it was so good to hear something fresh so early on.

 The production helps immensely throughout with a dirtier less precise mix, there’s a bit of grit and grime that I really wasn’t expecting. The balance of this with the technical nature of the songwriting is a very effective combination. ‘Quicksand’ is another slice of goodness this time with a very slow dark and methodical riff echoing much which came with last album Dig Deep. I adore this side of ATB as it differs so greatly from their previous work. Guitarist Trent Halfdahl is now the only surviving member of the original line up and he has poured every bit of himself into Evergreen. Those chugging riffs still batter you senseless and his sweeping solo style is still at times breathtaking. 
After a strong start, the familiar drawbacks of the djent sound start to rear their ugly heads. Now while the overall sound is well-rounded there is enough wizardry and flair in the music the vocals really do need a lot of work. Now I’m not saying that there needs to be an abundance of clean vocals à la Periphery or even Monuments. There just needs to be a lot more variation, something to take these songs to the next level.

Take ‘Respire’ for instance a track which is about as straight ahead Metalcore as ATB will ever get and somewhere where I felt the vocals could have really filled things out. Instead, it just dissolves into the same style no matter what the music is doing. Evergreen is a very apt title being that ATB is still here and will be for many years to come. This is a very solid progressive metal album which still shows why they’re so highly regarded amongst fans and peers alike. There is just so those same nagging problems which stop it being a masterpiece (*Review by Kieran Mitchell ).
