Soilwork-TheRideMajesticSlider
Soilwork, one of the more important figure heads within the melodic death metal style since their formation in 1996 (one year after carrying themselves as Inferior Breed) continued to grow, change, and even step away from their signature sound over the years to allow a modern rock influence. However, it has been made clear they finally have a grasp on how to work it into their signature sound following their 2013 double album The Living Infinite. But, after spoiling fans of boh modern and classic Soilwork on that effort, the outfit returns with their 2015 release The Ride Majestic, their tenth full-length release, poised to try and do it once more. But does this recording further the evolution we saw on their last effort, or does this one take a few steps back?

Diemonds-NeverWannaDieSlider
Diemonds is a Canadian hard rock group that came to be back in 2006. The five-piece started things off with their self-released effoert In the Rough in 2008, which peaked the interest of Underground Operations who picked them up to issue the follow-up album The Bad Pack in 2012. Both of these recordings have also seen release on cassette (2011 and 2012 respectively), as well as a vinyl version of the latter. For 2015, we find the female fronted act breaking out with Never Wanna Die, which is being handled by Napalm Records. But has the band continued to grow and nurture that relatively young sound, or does this new effort find the group taking more steps backward than forward?

ClownHouse
Available on a plethora of digital gaming marketplaces and indie sites, Clown House has now become a free download on the Steam marketplace. Of course, this is the first I’ve heard of this free to play (not freemium) title from Aslan Game Studio, creators of Be the Bell, Pawn of the Dead, and Learny Bird. But does this survival horror first person game clearly meant for the occulus rift stand as a scary experience involving three depressed, murderous clowns? I dare to find out…

CenturyMedia-Sony-Slider
It has become public knowledge at this point that Sony is interested in Century Media Records. I’m not entirely sure at this time if it has happened or not, as it is just a report that is circulating, but there’s enough worth discussing. Will it be a good thing? Will it be a bad thing? Everyone has their own opinion, so I felt I should throw mine into the mix. Check out what I think of this situation in this video.

Sanzu-PainlessSlider
Sanzu came to be when former Malignant Monster members Ben Stanley (drums) and Jarod “Century” Callow (guitar) teamed up for a new project in 2013. Soon, the Australian duo became a five-piece, picking up bassist Fatima Curley, guitarist Mikey Hart, and vocalist Zac Andrews to complete the line-up. Roughly two years since forming, the entity has finally unleashed their debut studio outing, a five song EP titled Painless. But does this stand as a solid offering fans of the death metal, or even deathcore movement should take notice of, or is it just a collection of uninspiring slow paced riffs disguised under the idea of “technicality”?
