1.How the band started?

Acrania  started in 2007, when guitarits and vocal Luis Oropeza, drumer J.C. Chavez, Bass player Alberto Morales and Guitarrist Felix Carreón tried to play something different and begin to mix death metal with some latin jazz style. They record “In Peaceful Chaos” E.P. and begin they search to a new musical genre that they call “latin metal”.

2.Which band is your role model?

Wow, I don’t know if I can narrow it down to just 1 band. All my favorites have unique qualities that I try and make into my own. I love their music of course, but their personal endeavors as a band influences me as well. I’ll just name a few: Overkill for their unending drive of always delivering the music. Metallica for their tenacity of being at the top of the Metal food chain. Testament  for their perseverance.

3.What do you think about today’s metal scene?

The Metal scene on the global scale is bigger than ever! The number of sub genres of Metal is insane and there seems to be more and more popping up each year. I find that totally awesome and inspiring. The fact that there are that many Metalheads out there playing music is just a beautiful thing.

4.How would you describe in one sentence your work?

Death metal mixed with energy and latin flavour.

5.Why did you decide to play this musical direction?

When Acrania began to play we were thinking how could we play different from the other bands, and we undertood that we had to mix our reallity with our music, and our reallity is full of latin rhythms, salsa, son, latin jazz etc so we decide to mix this with death metal.

6.Where would you most like to play a concert?

Finland, to see the reaction of finnish people listening death metal with trumpets and saxofon.

7.Do you think that the metal festivals are enough visited?

Well, at least in Europe we think they are.

8.What are you listening to the most right now?

New Obscura album, we love it.

EXTREMA released their new effort, “The Old School EP”, on May 27 via Punishment 18 Records. The EP features five tracks originally written during the band’s heyday – primarily unheard as finished recordings until now. Watch the video for the refreshed track “Carcasses”, taken from the EXTREMA’s Old School EP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnd7m2GGf4U

The Old School EP embodies the spirit, immediacy and brutality of the years in which its tracks were originally written, accented by fresh, pummelling production. Recorded last year at Fear Studios in Alfonsine (Ravenna, Italy) with The Seed of Foolishness producer Gabry Ravaglia, these tracks do not just prompt the “old school” cliché – they are the real deal – recorded in classic brutal fashion with only minimal writing tweaks.

All five tracks were originally written in 1987, shortly after the release of EXTREMA‘s  We Fuckin ‘ Care EP. Only one of these songs saw the light on an album – “Life” was originally released in 1993 on the band’s first full-length album Tension at the Seams. The track has been re-recorded for The Old School EP in addition to tracks the band is known for performing live-only or releasing as raw demos on rare tapes, including “Child Abuse”, the instrumental “M.A.S.S.A.C.R.O”, “Tribal Scream” and “Carcasses”. The idea came to guitarist Tommy Massara while tidying EXTREMA‘s audio archives. He began listening to a tape on which there were no notes or text records of any kind.

In addition to those tracks, “The Old School EP” is featuring two bonus tracks, including live versions of “Life” and Motörhead‘s “Ace of Spades”, both recorded in Rome, Italy.

The Old School EP track listing:
01. Life
02. Carcasses (feat. Ralph Salati of Destrage)
03. Tribal Scream
04. Child Abuse
05. M.A.S.S.A.C.R.O. (feat. Bob Capka, formerly of Vicious Rumours)
06. Life (Live in Rome)
07. Ace of Spades (Live in Rome)

EXTREMA is:
GL Perotti: Vocals
Tommy Massara: Guitars
Gabri Giovanna: Bass
Francesco La Rosa: Drums

Album Review: Darkthrone-Artic Thunder

 

1. Tundra Leech
2. Burial Bliss
3. Boreal Fiends
4. Inbred Vermin
5. Arctic Thunder
6. Throw Me Through the Marshes
7. Deep Lake Trespass
8. The Wyoming Distance

 

Norwegian black metal legends one and only Darkthrone, after a long time released the album. I can say that this album has some interesting moments, band itself is known for that all of thier releases are different from another, still it has the unigue atmospehere, that will surely hypnotize all of the listeners.

For the start, there are some influences of doom and heavy metal, all of the album is not typical black metal album, it’s something like black metal but it’s not completly. Riffs are very good, vocals are unigue as usual like on all of thier releases. I can say that there is too much heavy metal influence on this album, it’s more like heavy metal with old school black metal, it made it very unusual, but actualy it’s sounds very good, it has power to it.

Tehnical compliace is very good, as usual this bands has tehnical skills that are more than good, acoustic is great, production is awesome. This band stayed true to themeself’s with this album too. Trough out the history of Darkthrone every album was different. This album has it all, it’s dark as black metal record show be, it has some traditional heavy metal riffs and pure devastation of doom metal, typical great metal record.

Darkthrone as a band, has always be misunderstood, they always liked to experiment with their music, it’s they trademark, that got them to where they are now on metal scene. Quite unusual album, but awesome in many ways. You can like it or not, but this record is evil and wicked in very specific way.

When a band wants to make progress in their musical career, some experimentation isn’t a bad thing. In most cases, however, it means that they will not be highly praised for what they did.

The Swedish quintet with twenty six years of musical experience, In Flames, is one of those bands who are constantly trying to experiment with different genres of metal, abandoning their original musical style, in order to be unique. Known as one of the innovators of melodic death metal, along with the bands Dark Tranquility and At The Gates, they are the third member of the holy trinity of Gothenburg Sound.

With the first five albums featuring the vocals of Dark Tranquility’s singer, Mikael Stanne, especially the first one, “Lunar Strain”, and “Jester Race”, the Gothenburg “Pink Panther jewel”. They gave us a definition of flawless melodic death metal. With the album “Reroute to Remain” from 2002, they dramatically changed their musical style and begin a new era in their career, turning to the alternative metal.

The things started to go wrong in 2010, when the mastermind Jesper Strömblad left the bend and the bend released their eleventh studio “everything is gone” album, “Siren Charms“, that marked the loss of their identity, and made the name In Flames sound like one belonging to an obscure, unimpressive metal core band.

Two years later, In Flames are back with one of their most experimental and, sadly, tragic release, “Battles“, which continues their synthetic patterns of the previous “Siren Charms“. The album opens with the song ‘‘Drained”, where it is noticeable that Friden’s vocals are a little bit stronger than on the previous one.

The second track and the first highlight on the album, “The End”, brings the bend back to their melodic approach with some “A Sense of Purpose” vibe shinning effects. With the single “The Truth“, In Flames give us the message about their attitude to the diehard fans that prefer the pre-2011 period, making one of the most commercial and mainstream songs in their history; “Through my eyes” is characterized with a death metal intro and in some ways sounds like a piece from “Come Clarity“; “Here Until Forever” is a mellow, uninspiring ballad and one of the most unexpected things they have done so far; offering solid riffs and solos in “Before I Fall“, Bjorn and Engelin give the second highlight (and maybe the best song on the album).

Despite their attempts to make progress in their musical career, the structure of almost every song on this album is simplified, in a way which almost marks a typical post 2000’s in Flames song: uninspired and weak lyrics as if they were written for some pop punk band.

Guitar works of Bjorn Gellote and Niclas Engelin and session drumming of Daniel Svensson are soft as hell, far away from the level that was set twenty years ago. The riffs are too simple and forgettable, combined with the elements of electronic music and a children’s choir. Anders Friden, who used to be known for his ability to scream and growl, delivers terrible screams and harsh vocals.

With this pitiful record, the pioneers of melodic death metal, give us an unsuccessful and a kind of ‘‘super poppy” average album without the ‘‘copy paste” ideas from the previous works, with inoffensive, muted and childish songs in combination with electronic background. Their tragic battle to make progress lead them to defeat, losing a lot of their old school fans.
