DIE HARD Nihilistic Vision

January 9, 2010 in News by TMC

DIE HARD Sweden’s DIE HARD have unleashed their sophomore release Nihilistic Vision. The album torches you with 10 tracks of old-school thrash, bursting with solos, thunderous drumming and buzzsaw guitars.

The smell of total death will engulf you while listening to DIE HARD at maximum volume. Features Hakan Jonsson of Watain on drums.

“…old school thrash metal with a swinging set of elephant balls and a death metal attitude. Featuring members of Watain, the style owes as much to early Slayer and Venom as it does to Exodus or the Bay Area School…” – Teethofthedivine.com

Blake McKibben Young man with a big future

January 6, 2010 in News by TMC

Blake McKibben With so many albums little more than a collection of songs rushed out as soon as there is enough material to fill the space, it is a rare pleasure to find a record as lovingly crafted as Blake McKibben’s debut.

This young, good-looking man from Portland, Oregon has produced a record that has taken all of two years’ hard work to perfect.

‘Haze’ is an album that cannot be defined by any single style, but which still has a thread running through each and every track. As befits a record made entirely by one individual, every song is intensely personal, telling the stories of a man’s life; both the highs and the lows.

Equally adept at turning his hand to rock, pop, folk or even hip-hop, McKibben uses every weapon in his musical armoury. But each style is just another reflection of his soul, and evidence of an enormous talent.
