YAKUZA – Complete Work On New Album

Chicago cult progressive avant-jazz metal band YAKUZA have completed work on their sixth full-length album “Beyul”.

Seen as one of the most underrated, distinct, and unique American metal bands of our time, YAKUZA have always been synonymous with music eclecticism; the band creating a volatile yet searing hybrid of pillaging progressive metal, jazz, and grindcore.  Through the extreme shape shifting musical transitions, one of the most defining characteristics of YAKUZA is of course the vocal delivery of renaissance metal artist/musician Bruce Lamont, and even moreso his incorporation of saxophone into the mix of the music.  A trait that…

MENACE RUINE – Complete Work On New Album

Montreal industrial blackened neo-folk duo MENACE RUINE have completed work on their new album “Alight In Ashes”.

Formed in 2006 by S. De La Moth and Genevieve, MENACE RUINE have defined their unique, hypnotizing, and enchanting sound through a searing yet seamless mix of martial ambient, industrial, neo-folk, and black metal.  Where the waves of harsh yet elegant sound and noise lays the ground-work to complement the mesmerizing and haunting vocals of Genevieve, for those who haven’t heard and/or are not familiar with the oeuvre of MENACE RUINE, one can say that their sound almost comes across a kinship…
