回顧全文 Review

「 ……可能是今年在香港最棒的金屬演出!隨著夜幕降臨,英國 Grindcore / 旋死金屬先驅 Carcass 把全晚氣氛推至高峰。休息十多年後,樂團在2013年以新作 Surgical Steel 和一連串現場和音樂節演出作凱旋回歸。這絕對是一個完美的表演,非常緊湊,令人動容,更能通過深厚、持久的死亡金屬歌曲傳達複雜的情感。穩定的鼓聲與利落的結他互相輝影,而不是速度或技術性的競爭。任何真正的金屬追隨者都必定會欣賞這個堅實的力量……」

“…Hands down to one of the best metal gig in Hong Kong this year! As the night falls, Carcass, British’s grindcore / melodic death metal pioneer, push the night to the peak. After almost 10 years on hiatus, the band came back with new material, Surgical Steel, in 2013, and a series of live dates and festival performance to make a triumphant return. This absolutely flawless set is tight, moving and is able to convey complex emotion via deep, enduring death metal songs. Drum is steady and guitar is sleek. There is no competition for speed or technicality but a brutal harmony between instrument. Any real metal followers would appreciate this solid force…”

[NEWS] Born of Osiris – Soul Sphere Album Streaming

Born of Osiris 把第五張專輯 Soul Sphere 上載到互聯網供樂迷免費試聽。主唱 Joe Buras 解釋:「這個專輯的故事分成三個層面。第一層稱為 The Binding,指你靈魂被綑綁,第二層是 The Fight,指你無論在肉體、情緒或靈性上被慢慢拉開,最後一層是 The Release,意即獲得自由和愛。

Born of Osiris’s fifth full-length album, Soul Sphere, is now available for full streaming via Sumerian Records. “The whole story of the record involves three levels,” explains singer Joe Buras of the Soul Sphere story. “The first one is The Binding. You’re hanging, and you’re stagnant. The second is The Fight. You were hanging, but now you’re pulling away from this linchpin, whether it’s physical, emotional, or spiritual. The final is The Release. You break away and feel free, connected, and loved.”
