DEMON HUNTER – Release Live Album

H8X9 

TMD Rocks!

"The band mutantly goes from sounding furious and pissed off, along the likes of Pantera and Dry Kill Logic, to the all-out complex compositional structuring of King's X, Watchtower and Dream Theater, loaded with more odd time signatures and arpeggios than even the most gifted jazz instrumentalists throws at their listeners. There's something extremely admirable about an act that flies in the face of current musical trends and HATETIMESNINE is proof positive that solid musicianship and carefully crafted songs will always win out in the end over the formulaic, cut-and-dried approach that's being offered up by just about every other band out there today."

– Randy "Rocket" Cody, The Metal Den

OBITUARY – Announce Fall Dates

Hatesphere 

TMD Rocks!

Check out the new track HERE.

"Danish thrash metal act Hatesphere has been pounding the hell out of the metal world with their brutally-engaging, yet fully groove oriented songs since their debut in 2001. Recently, the band went through a complete lineup overhaul, seeing the departure of members Jacob Bredahl, Anders Gyldenøhr, and Mikael Ehlert Hansen. Only Peter "Pepe" Lyse Hansen (the founding member) remained. The shakeup is said to have not happened out of animosity, but more like a 'shedding of skin' to see what new things the great band could achieve with a more intense direction than ever before."

– Randy "Rocket" Cody, The Metal Den
