Thy Art Is Murder ‘Hate’

Despite being one of it’s longest standing sub-genres, death metal has always lurked on the periphery of our culture like that weird kid at school who sat on his own pulling the wings off flies and then later turns out to be a serial killer. Nonetheless, the very presence of Thy Art is Murder shows that there are some youngsters ...

Soilwork ‘The Living Infinite’

The pathway of musical history is littered with examples of bands who have tried to make double, or even triple, disc albums and have not succeeded. Invariably the first album has had some decent tunes on it, but nothing that stands out that much, and the second album is normally pretty poo. It is a shame, but it seems that ...

RAMzines Top Ten Rock & Metal Superheroes

Ok, before we start, I would like to make a few things clear. I am fully aware that some of these technically aren’t “super” heroes, as they don’t actually have any super powers. But the thing is there are some very simple people on the internet (not you though, we like you) whose minds would be physically incapable of understanding ...

RAMzine Introduces… Beneath the Wake

Deathcore is, of course, not to everybody’s taste. Certainly, images of early Bring Me the Horizon have been known to induce seizures to some of the metal community, but in my eyes there are some modern bands such as Upon a Burning Body, Chelsea Grin and Whitechapel (who don’t actually consider themselves to be ‘deathcore’ but I’m including them anyway) have ...
