SMASH HIT COMBO - L33T

What would have happened if LINKIN PARK would have continued with their nu metal of the 2000s by adding modern Djent-sounds as well as a theme revolving around the video games culture, all sprinkled with cynical punchlines and dark humor. The new double album of SMASH HIT COMBO would clearly be the worthy heir.

The name "L33T" (literally, "language of the elite") is a writing system using alphanumeric characters and being used by computer hackers. It is an international language that perfectly matches the concept of the new album of our 6 gamers from Alsace (France): 24 new songs, 12 in French and 12 in English, that are sung by the famous and talented rapper None Like Joshua (NLJ) from Atlanta (USA).

After their latest successful album "Playmore" which gave a big high kick to the nu metal genre, after their many tours in France, Japan, Russia and Canada, as well as many shows with bands like LIMP BIZKIT, GOJIRA , WALLS OF JERICHO, (Hed) PE, HACKTIVIST or MASS HYSTERIA, SMASH HIT COMBO are coming back with this uncompromising album and are determined to beat all the end bosses to place their new source code at the top of the international nu metal page.

Be ready for a festival of fatalities and special guitar strokes, but also for an international masterpiece alternating melodious songs in LINKIN PARK 2.0 mode and adrenaline power ups that will take you to the final stage of the nu metal of modern times.

OMNIMAR - Poison

Again, time has come for pure emotion from Russia!

With their new album “Poison” OMNIMAR provide the next masterpiece, that already announced itself by the single-release “Out of my Life” in a more than convincing way.

The previous album “Start” has already attracted attention in the scene, so that among others the gothic-magazine “Orkus” already acknowledged OMNIMAR with long reviews.

Emotional as we know them, the russian musicians are providing us with goosebumps: More spherical and darker than ever before, OMNIMAR successfully handle the balancing act of musical progress and preservation of their unique and typical sound, that in the past already enchanted their fans. But also tracks like “Boom Boom”, that has the potential for the next dancefloor-hit, ensure a nice and well-rounded contrast towards the dark and emotional tracks, that directly find their way towards the listeners heart.

So whoever doesn’t want to miss the next chapter in the success-story of OMNIMAR, should definitely be ready for the new album “Poison”!

DUST IN MIND - Oblivion

"White coats around me, medications to help me. This venom that makes me sleep, that heals me, but scares me. White coats around me, I never want to see. This venom that makes me sleep, take me for eternity."

We are very proud to present you the new full audio video "Anesthesia" of DUST IN MIND. This song is taken from their new album "Oblivion" which is OUT NOW!

METALLSPÜRHUNDE - Giftbox

Dynamite for the ears!

Since 1998, that is almost two decades, Metallspürhunde are delighting the world with their unique sound. Like the eponymous Minesweeper-Dogs of the Vietnam-War, the swiss musicians steadily are unearthing new musical inflammable matter, that is able to fascinate their fans again and again. After 4 EPs and 6 studio-albums that were already release now it is time for the seventh stroke. With “Giftbox” a classy mixture of Rock-elements, electropunk and synthpop awaits in the manner of the great names of the 80s like Depeche Mode or New Order. At the same time METALLSPÜRHUNDE revive the flair of the “Neue Deutsche Todeskunst” that was known by bands like LacrimosaOfficial and Co., creating their unique sound that is a mixture of a bit nostalgia and timelessness.

With their experience the swiss musicians understand like no other band how to create a critical review of our time with seemingly ordinary topics, and how to make a profound analysis out of profanities. In this manner “Giftbox” appears as an extraordinary piece of art, that with ease brings out the main points and gives the listeners food for thoughts. METALLSPÜRHUNDE again create a wide musical and topical range, that could encompass a whole world. Whoever doesn’t consider himself satisfied with less, should not miss “Giftbox”.
