Laika – Somnia – Filth Regime Records

Somnia for insomnia.

Laika is a melodic death metal band from Canada that didn’t realized that there is a much more famous band with the same name, but you know how kiddos are… always trying to impress.

Their promo photo says their influence: Black Dahlia Murder and Suicide Silence (bands that I loathe) and one of the guys are wearing Judas Priest tee (Sin after Sin) which is a sin per se.

The songs are well executed and AGAIN the production is on spot, but for what? Everything here sounds brainless and made only for the show. There’s no real music inside, just riffs, drumming, but no music. There’s no highlight as all the songs sound the same.

The word somnia in Latin means sleep. It’s explained. If you have insomnia, Laika is better than Clonazepam.

Somnia  is out now on Filth Regime Records

Mandatory – Catharsis – Self Released

Lies, lies and more MODERN METAL LIES!

This band promises in its press release a real fix for HEADBANGERS with hints of NWOBHM and pure metal on the loose and to be the next thing that will rock the world: lemme tell you what they are: LIARS!

This is simply modern metal, metalcore, garbagecore no NWOBHM can be found in ANY of the tracks, everything reeks of modernism, everything is full of “breaks”, everything is Americanized, everything is tailor-made for modern kiddos.

This is not metal in the very sense (and essence) of the word: this is pure and simple Metalcore and Melodic Death Metal with nothing new to bring to the fold.

Worse than being a mediocre band is to be a bunch of LIARS. Don’t listen to them, they don’t deserve to exist!

Catharsis is Self Released.
