Crimson Shadows Stream New Melodeath Album

Crimson Shadows, the power metal/death metal group from Toronto, have made a huge coming this year with their new album, Kings Among Men.  The band has your typical melodeath sound, as well as some Hamerfall and Dragon Force influences.  Those influences are especially heard on this new album.  Chugging and squealing speed metal riffs, double bass drums, throaty growling, finger picked bass lines, and the occasional melodic clean singing are characteristics of Crimson Shadows.  Everything you love about this type of music is magnified at a tolerable and pleasing level on Kings Among Men.  I highly suggest it for something unique and epic to listen to.

Overall Rating- 7/10

DEADLOCK - Renegade (official video)

Brand new track from Bavarian melodic death metal band, Deadlock.  A very interesting anthem song from the band, with the usual incredible dynamic from two vocalists.  Their new compilation album is a scorcher that should not be over looked.

Slipknot, “5: The Gray Chapter” out October 21st Roadrunner Records.  "After everything we went through, there’s a catharsis that comes with this, being able to throw all the emotion and aggression out that we’ve been holding onto. At the same time, getting to be creative again. Feeling that juice coming back into us. It’s been a real positive experience just from an artistic standpoint, a lyrical standpoint."
