If you enjoy the top 100 list below this music is heavy rock/ heavy metal from 1969/ 1991 when heavy metal had a different style.

Before the game changer album

Deicide “Deicide” which is a cornerstone album of KICK ASS METAL. And a previous album in heavy metal history where we get Gothic Metal / Avant-Garde Metal the game changer album Celtic Frost “Into The Pandemonium” which was unleashed on planet metal on July 1st, 1987. And most of the press since 1991 in heavy metal has used this album as its starting / jump-off point.

More of this style traditional metal can be found at and were going to give a shout-out to

If you enjoy the top 100 list below it is from various sources obviously Ill-Literture Magazine. Occult Rock webZine. Encyclopedia Metallica, which as a true metal book is not that good but if you read it as a occult rock book, it is a fucking goldmine and essential as fuck. Martin Popoff just like Malcolm Dome wrote “metal ”  books, but they are on the same trajectory as Encyclopedia Metallica, which explains why Metal Archives has a half million liar/ posers/ loser write for them. 

 

Via Omega took what Occult Rock webZine and took it to the next level, and we were here 1st doing that put Ill-literture pre-dates us in a huge fucking way because they were the 1st to throw all the spaghetti at the wall, and watch the best of the best reach to the top. Since they covered NuMetal years before the other metal only specialist publications when print media ruled up until 2009. Then the internet became all the rage.

 

So for more albums in this vein it is just us. Avant Garde Metal webZine and print editions

TOP 100 HEAVY METAL Albums of 2020

Occult Rock/ Occult Metal

Lucifer “Lucifer III”

Multinational Heavy Rock Megalith from Stockholm.
Lucifer is defined by their very heavy 1970s Hard Rock sound spiced with a good dose of Proto
Heavy Metal and Doom Rock. Main influences are groups such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple,
Blue Öyster Cult, Lucifer’s Friend, Steppenwolf, 70’s Heart and Fleetwood Mac.
With nearly 200 shows under their belt Lucifer has toured the US, Canada, Japan and Europe
multiple times and played renowned international festivals like The KISS Kruise, Psycho Las
Vegas, Hellfest, MetalDays, Sweden Rock, Desertfest, the long standing German cult TV program
Rockapalast twice, to name only but a few.
Founded in 2014 in Berlin by The Oath front woman Johanna Sadonis, the group first consisted of
Cathedral, Angel Witch and Ladytron members. The first 7” Single ‘Anubis’ and debut album
‘Lucifer I’, penned by Sadonis and Cathedral’s Garry Jennings and released by British label Rise
Above Records, brought Lucifer international recognition.
With a shift of constellation within the band in 2016 and Johanna Sadonis’ move from Berlin to
Stockholm, Lucifer were ready for chapter two. In Nicke Andersson, notable for his groups The
Hellacopters, Entombed, Imperial State Electric, Death Breath among others, Sadonis found a new
renowned writing partner. Together they wrote Lucifer’s second album ‘Lucifer II’ and produced it at
Nicke’s studio The Honk Palace in Stockholm in the summer of 2017.
With the critically acclaimed release of their long awaited second album ‘Lucifer II’ 2018 on Century
Media and the videos for the singles ‘California Son’ and ‘Dreamer’, Lucifer was facing a new
grand chapter. With more than 13.000 physical copies sold, the album jolted into the Swedish,

“Listen to the lyrics, they’re going to make you feel something… ” – Mixi

That something is the essence of Stitched Up Heart – a band built around the strength that comes from realizing we are the only ones that control our lives, and focused on the hope that reminds us there is always light at the end of the darkest tunnel. It’s something heavy and powerful, jarring the album’s epic closing track “I Can’t Breathe” from a piano-paced ballad that would do Lady Gaga proud, to a metallic onslaught of drop-tuned guitars that is sure to see the band sharing a stage with the hardest of their hard rock peers. And it is something undeniable, Mixi’s voice taking flight amidst anthems of self-awareness that bridge the unrelenting confidence of In This Moment’s Maria Brink and the soulful transcendence of Adele.

“When I formed this band I was depressed and going through heartbreak. The name is supposed to give people strength and courage,” professes the frontwoman in a warm and certain tone. “We all go through things that make us think we can’t go further but, especially when times are bad, I want people to see that time will pass and it will get better. The hopeful lyrics on this record are on purpose – I’ve been living in the dark for too long, it’s time to come into the light. You need to pick yourself up because nobody is going to do that for you. There are some sick people out there, but there is beauty in everyone – and you need to love yourself before you can stitch that heart back up.”

“Finally Free” thrust the band into the national spotlight in early 2016, exorcising its demons and riding breakthrough success on SiriusXM Octane into the Top 20 at Active Rock radio. “That song is sentimental to me, it’s an eye opener because it’s when I realized that there was a light at the end of the tunnel and that life is really beautiful,” she offers. But the demon returns on “Monster,” a blitzkrieg of stabbing guitars and shrill effects that opens with Mixi declaring, “Now don’t you make me, make me go crazy…” We’re all a little crazy, but Mixi felt a little more possessed as usual when the band penned the monster track.

“The studio where we wrote ‘Monster’ was a pretty creepy place,” she details, “A black cat gave birth to two albino cats there, there were spell books on the shelves, it had a crazy energy and I almost felt possessed, the words coming through and speaking through me… It might have also been that I was drinking a lot of Monster Energy Drink that day, but it felt like a beast came out!”

From the bombastic, dark and seedy tribute to their Los Angeles home that is “City of Angels,” into the great beyond via the cinematic super nova that is “Event Horizon” – the metaphoric closing of one door and the opening of a new chapter – the debut album oozes with a voice as powerful as the music, and music as compelling as the voice it carries. “Everyone has felt like they don’t have anybody, I want to reach out to anyone feeling that way and let them know that they aren’t alone,” says Mixi of Never Alone.

Whether we’re ducking and dodging life’s often cruel barrage, embracing a moment of calm at the center of a storm, or simply looking for the strength to make it through the day, Stitched Up Heart have delivered the soundtrack for a life worth living… Turn it up, because we are never alone.

Abnormality added to its band camp the lyrics to the must have album of 2019

Abnormality “Sociopathic Constructs”

 

https://abnormality.bandcamp.com/

 

Monarch Alpha

 

Filtered through a veil of insignificance,
Splintered into pairs of existences,
Fighting for control of me internally,
Colliding in my mind waging war with me,
Scratching at the walls of my sanity,
Smashing glass windows of mental clarity,
Conjuring the alters from the chaos,
Promising a forced hiatus,
A human weakness? Or simple reflex?
Perpetual traumatizing abuse,
Results in a splitting of the psyche,
A natural consequence ~ of mental defense,
Repeat the agonizing process,
One man, Many personalities,
A weapon forged deep in the belly of the beast,
Lethality mastered – Monarch Alpha,
Torn apart to merge the man with the machine,
Identity shattered – Monarch Alpha,
Shedding every shred of my humanity,
Suspending sentience for the menagerie
Prototype designed for the impossible,
Genetics modified indestructible,
Intensified combat adaptation,
amplified sensory integration,
Compounded by a total lack of empathy,
Amounting to an unmatched savagery,
My mutation – needs daily medication,
A fail safe to keep a weapon subservient,
Miss a dose and my death is unstoppable,
Forever tethered – to my oppressor,
Until the day I no longer serve their purpose,
Kill me off like a major liability,
A weapon forged deep in the belly of the beast,
Lethality mastered – Monarch Alpha,
Torn apart to merge the man with the machine,
Identity shattered – Monarch Alpha,
A weapon forged deep in the belly of the beast,
Lethality mastered – Monarch Alpha,
Torn apart to merge the man with the machine,
Harmonic slave chains, Locked on my brain waves,
Covert mind crimes, HijackIng my minds eye,
A tool of condition, To do all their bidding,
Surgical precision in all means of killing,
Genetic revisions, Increasing cognition,
Freak persistence, Zero submission
Immersed in mortal curse, Scourge of the earth.

 

 

 

Penance

The prophecy, The atrocity,
Falling Babylon, Has begun,
An agency of absurdity, The epitome of excessive force,
Tactically paramilitary, With a history of shooting first,
Hell bent on bloodshed, Day one ends with ten dead,
Senseless, Carnage, Unqualified, Unjustified,
Senseless, Carnage,
Targeted oppression, Pinned down beneath the boot,
Hubristic aggression, Towards children of abandoned youth,
Penance,
Manipulated perception, A cult of misguided fools,
Universal condemnation, To blind your eyes from finding truth,
Penance,
Alienate and isolate,
Violating posse comitatus,
Combat applications group deployment,
Military unleashed on citizens,
Mauling the people it swore to defend,
Circumventing all hope for survival,
Punching holes and gassing them all day long,
Hell bent on bloodshed, Punishment without due process,
Government drunk on vengeance, In the end 86 dead,
Senseless, Carnage, Unqualified, Unjustified,
An agency of absurdity, The epitome of excessive force,
Tactically paramilitary with a history of shooting first.

 

Kakistocracy

An endless series of supreme disappointments,
A parade of spineless gutless fucks,
Orchestrating the illusion of choices,
Grand charade for all these mindless idiots
So pick a side, left or right, You decide which one you like
The lesser of two evils, Great savior of the people,
Sew the seeds of democracy, Harvester of belief,
So naive it’s guaranteed, Our Kakistocracy,
A simulacrum uncontrollably expanding,
Entangled in constricting tentacles,
Clever distractions to ensure misunderstanding,
Strangled by conflicting parables,
So pick a side, left or right, You decide which one you like,
The lesser of two evils, Great savior of the people,
Sew the seeds of democracy, Harvester of belief,
So naive it’s guaranteed, Our Kakistocracy,
A house of pseudo representatives,
Devoid of all accountability,
Corrupt courts of supreme hypocrisy,
The rule of law in the hands of criminals,
The oval office under foreign occupation,
Total subversion of a once free republic,
Globalist – overlords collapsing – everything,
All of you – bloodsucking miscreants – betraying,
So content behind your shroud of delusion, Who gives a
fuck?
Ignorant – children of ignorant – children of,
Complacent – citizens of future – consequence,
The long descent into abysmal illusion, Who gives a fuck,
Sociopaths playing God,
Sociopaths playing God, Without permission.

 

 

Transmogrification of the Echoborgs

The screaming absence of will and reason,
An arid society asleep at the wheel,
Slaves of the frequency fed constant subconsciously,
Controlled by the source, The conqueror of earth,
The conversion was instant, No one could resist it,
Worldwide submission of the echoborgs,
Cerebral infiltration, Cognitive augmentation,
Transmogrification of the echoborgs
A subliminal vibration born in the singularity,
Pulsing supremacy begins to assimilate,
Converting the collective to mechanized hybrids,
Everyone modified with an optical third eye,
The conversion was instant, No one could resist it,
Worldwide submission of the echoborgs,
Cerebral infiltration, Cognitive augmentation,
Transmogrification of the echoborgs,
Passengers, Prisoners,
Trapped inside of self, Observing our demise,
Helpless prison cell, Confined within my mind,
Passengers, Prisoners,
Transmogrification of the Echoborgs,
The conversion was instant, No one could resist it,
Worldwide submission of the echoborgs,
Cerebral infiltration, Cognitive augmentation,
Transmogrification of the echoborgs.

 

A Catastrophic and Catalyzing Event

This day of reckoning, This changes everything,
Life as we know it will never be the same,
Brace for imminent upheaval, Definitive evil,
A false flag to place the blame,
An act of organized chaos streaming to the masses,
Programming this enormous lie,
Precision guided weapons, disguised as hijacked airplanes,
Without a single soul inside,
Expanded theater of warfare, trampling sanity,
A catastrophic and catalyzing event, for the new century
Targeting twin monoliths, Devastation symbolic,
First responders climbing swallowing a fear most will never taste,
Just to find the violent commotion of secondary explosions,
Detonating in strategic sequence, Consuming structural frame,
A massive controlled demolition turns everything to dust,
A scorching cloud of concrete and bone,
Providing needed outrage to justify the global rampage,
Of a shadow government posing as our own,
Expanded theater of warfare, Trampling sanity,
A catastrophic and catalyzing event, For the new century,
To break the will of millions, Provide a worthy villain,
Violently kill civilians, On every television,
Vaporized, Three thousand lives in the blink of an eye,
Nothing to find, unidentified,
Evil exists, Dispatching death wherever life persists,
Government, The mask worn by the worst terrorists,
Pulverized, Impossible demise of permanent design,
Steel liquefied, Erased from the sky,
Evil exists, Dispatching death wherever life persists,
Government, The mask worn by the worst terrorists,
Zionists, Dual citizens with covert purposes,
Government, The mask worn by the real terrorists.

 

Dying Breed

You will obey,
You will be a sheep,
Subservient, unquestioning,
Cog in the machine,
Sit when told to sit,
Stand when told to stand,
Give up your humanity,
Autonomy for a paycheck,
They will crush you,
Human freedom is a dying breed,
Ruled by super technologies,
Warping minds and bodies,
All must bow before the system,
A purposeless cog in the machine,
Tolerate the intolerable,
Domestication of the human race,
They will crush you,
Human freedom is a dying breed,
Ruled by super technologies,
Warping minds and bodies,
Brainwashed into conformity,
Complete coercion of mind,
Mass media telling you how to think,
Believe their ideas to be your own,
Nothing wild will escape their grasp,
All will be molded by their hands,
No deviation from the norm,
Technology marches forward,
Powerless and purposeless,
Move on to the next distraction,
From labs in white coats,
Mapping genes and brains,
Neurons, hormones, and complex molecules,
Advancing psychological and biological tools.

Aeturum :50 (instrumental)

A Seething Perversion

Waiting, watching, patiently coveting,
Blending in the scenery, stalking invisibly,
A seething perversion, forever burning,
Obsession forbidden, Molesting children,
Earning your blind trust, Mommy and daddy oblivious,
Drowning in depravity, Far outweighing audacity,
Scapegrace predators, serial molesters,
Overwhelming addiction, So many victims,
A seething perversion, Beyond disturbing,
A cult of pedophiles, Feeding on juveniles,
Earning your blind trust, Mommy and daddy oblivious,
Drowning in depravity, Far outweighing audacity,
Silence, absolute silence, Violent, sodomy of minors,
Children, lost inside the system, Victims, of sadism,
Forgotten youth in the care of men of lost virtue,
An endless loop perpetuating sexual abuse,
Innocence consumed by turning kids into prostitutes,
Somehow immune in the face of overwhelming proof,
Power, corrupting power, Trauma, breeding karma,
Children, beaten to submission, Living, horrific existence,
Forgotten youth in the care of men of lost virtue,
An endless loop perpetuating sexual abuse,
Innocence consumed by turning kids into prostitutes,
Somehow immune in the face of overwhelming proof.

 

 

Curb Stomp

A waste of life, unworthy of existence,
You can’t replace the things you took from me,
You live the lie, an ordinary fiction,
It won’t erase your true identity,
This won’t be quick or painless,
You’re about to learn how far you’ll bend before you break,
No mercy for fucking rapists,
Forced to endure the burn of sulfuric acid drips to the face,
There’s no avoiding this rage you have created,
So many years I’ve waited, this won’t be negotiated,
Your mind recoils at the wrath I’ve cultivated,
Stomping your face into the cold black pavement,
Your time is short, but far from over,
Your time will come when my vengeance satisfies,
This only gets worse, Excruciating torture,
Screams go unheard with your balls in a vice,
There’s no avoiding this rage you have created,
So many years I’ve waited, This won’t be negotiated,
Your mind recoils at the wrath I’ve cultivated,
Stomping your face into the cold black pavement,
Abandon all hope now,
Beg for your fucking life, This you will not survive,
Blood, sweat, piss and tears, All hope disappears,
Hog tied face down,
Skull stomped into the ground.

 

Biography

Sociopathic Constructs serves to further cement Abnormality’s place at the cutting edge of savage ultra-technical death metal. With the follow up to 2016’s Mechanisms Of Omniscience, the Marlborough, Massachusetts quintet have stepped up their game across the board, making for a record that is as violent, complex and thought provoking as any you will hear in 2019, and the band were not afraid to explore and mix things up. “I think this record we felt free enough to just go where we wanted to within a song,” states guitarist Jeremy Henry. “We had no qualms with switching styles and approaches from riff to riff. To have a whole section grinding away and then just switch gears, hit the brakes and drop a slow, old school Morbid Angel warship groove in there. We felt free to follow our instincts, and just let our influences shine through.”

With Mechanisms of Omniscience opening the door for the band to tour with Suffocation, Napalm Death, The Black Dahlia Murder, Pig Destroyer, and Misery Index, their profile has risen dramatically between records. “We learned so much from the past few years of touring, including how to handle adversity. In turn, we have matured and grown as musicians and people,” declares vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy. However, the writing did not stop, with drummer/lyricist Jay Blaisdell penning lyrics for the album’s successor almost as soon as it was finished, never struggling to find inspiration. “With a lot of lyrics already written, the structures of a lot of songs were written into them. We’ve done that before but not as much as we did on this record, and I think it really paid off this time around,” says Blaisdell. The glorious, attacking-from-all-fronts near-chaos of their song structures is a hallmark of the band, switching up tempos and timings, unleashing dizzying riffs and pushing things to their extremes throughout, never letting the listener get too comfortable, yet never losing hold of that core vision that holds everything together. Only brief, eerie interlude “Aeternum” lets the listener off the hook, the remainder of the record an all out assault, but one with a great deal of variety. “A Seething Perversion”, for instance, opens with a monstrous, stabbing groove that perfectly plays off against the more rampant violence surrounding it, while a militaristic feel creeps into passages of “Kakistocracy”, and a droning evil works into the closing passages of “Curb Stomp”, each track having a strong individual identity. The decimating vocals of Sundaramurthy also make for an integral facet – her monstrous roar the perfect accompaniment to music so merciless – and the solos that scythe through the tumult are a large part of what makes the record so compelling, with no parts included for the sake of it.

When it comes to finding lyrical inspiration, Blaisdell and Sundaramurthy never have to look far. “The world we live in is a fucking mental hospital. The true nature of our reality is something that I’m obsessed with, so it will always come out in my lyrics,” Blaisdell says, asserting that the title itself stems from the ability to read between the lines and decipher the information that is fed to us daily as “truth”. “It’s about a constant search for what is real and what is disinformation. It’s about realizing that many of our leaders, the people in power, are actually sociopaths. It’s essentially referencing the many twisted and immoral acts that have been carried out and painted as something completely different. Most of the songs are individual stories that fit within this overarching theme.” Disseminating the news and whatever lurks behind it sees the lyrics go in numerous directions, with “Monarch Alpha” in fact a sequel to “Monarch Omega” from their debut full-length Contaminating the Hive Mind (2012), both songs about MK Ultra, or the concept of mind control being used to create assassins. “The former dealt more with trauma-induced mind control, ‘Monarch Alpha’ is essentially about the next step up in the program. It’s the more technically evolved, much scarier version of creating assassins.” Following a different tangent, Blaisdell stresses that “A Catastrophic And Catalyzing Event” is a song he has always wanted to write, and is essentially his own personal theory of what really happened on September 11th 2001. “Back in 2005 I accidentally saw a video online that instantly convinced me that the official story of 9/11 is a lie. It was a huge awakening for me. My outrage and shock led me down a never-ending pursuit for the truth. It took me roughly six or seven years before I could figure out my own theory of how it actually went down, based on what I know did and didn’t happen. And it was something that I needed to do for my own personal sanity.”

The album was tracked primarily at The Brick HitHouse in Hyannis, Massachusetts with producers Peter Rutcho (Revocation, Soul Remnants) and Shane Frisby (Becoming The Archetype, Bury Your Dead) with vocals produced by Zdenek Sikyr at Studio Hostivar in Prague. Having worked with Rutcho since 2010, it was a painless, professional process, the band also bringing in Chaney Crabb of Entheos to add a guest vocal to the devastating “Penance”. “‘Sociopathic Constructs’ is the result of tons of hard work and shows the progress we have made as a band since ‘Mechanisms’,” asserts Sundaramurthy. “We feel the time is now for such an album, the brutality perfectly reflects the darkness, violence, and harsh reality of our world.”

TWISTED VALUES

Written by : Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral * Lyrics by : Fernanda Lira

Disorganized State, organized crime
Fear is taking over, hate being spread
fight for equality, so there’s no excuses
Not a society’s product, but their own choice’s

A Covered Up Civil War
Laws Done By Outlaws
Lives taken in vain
Terror practiced for fun

Twisted Values
Impurity
Twisted Values
Injustice

No role modles to follow, no enough laws to punish
Being evil is good, violence is usual

Killings going on and nothings done
Don’t do it by need, it’s pleasure (casuse) they’ll be free

Until when lives will be valueless?
Until when we’ll sustain them?
Until when we’ll be victim’s of their responsibilities?

Twisted Values
Impurity
Twisted Values
Corruption

JUSTICE BE DONE

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Children defenseless against cowards
Torture, abuse, harm
Leave Marks, satisfy desires
Evil pest, what is going on?

Fear
of the filthy hands
Guilt
of doing nothing
Pain
suffering in silence
Rage
they just can’t forget

Justice be Done
Silent Hurt
Justice be Done

Nowhere to run or to hide
No enough laws to punish or fight
The family won’t listen their cry
I speak in the name of this child

WAKE UP AND FIGHT
Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Wake up and fight!
Wake up and fight!

While you’re hungry-they feed their greed
While you’re homeless-they live confomfortably
While you’re dumb-they steal your money
When you’re blingd-they make fake promises

Own benefit
Death of Ethic
Power Games
Laughing at ya

The raise up the flag of fucking likes
They betray us who should be (their) allies
Submit us to their shitty corruption

People don’t know
Were on Control!

NASTY INJURY

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

Time becoming a loss
Transforming every minute in pain
Won’t escape, took the blame, cold blood
Searching the unthinkable

Want to make otherwise
A moment of pure ambition
Seeking a reversal mode
You won’t get nothing from revenge

Search will be constant
Return won’t exist
Time Will be lost
No Satisfaction

Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the Consequences of his revenge
Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the principle of his defeat now
Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the values of your life now

ENVIOUS

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernanda Lira and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira 
Watch other thrive
Corrodes you inside
Wasted Struggle
Insult to your self-worth

You envy but you don’t recognize the hard work
My wise piece of mind-your frustration inside

Shut, move,
No words, but action
Shut, move
Pursuit satisfaction

It made me stronger
I forgave the slander
Incompetence, hate
Makes you feel this way

Trust your value
Do it better
Don’t envy other
Have your merits

MORBID COURAGE

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernanda Lira and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

A loser
A weak
A coward
Not able to build

Your life a mistake
Stealing won’t change you better

Inability, agony will go over you
Coward character
The hate, disgrace is what you’re gonna get

Your not free – and will never will be
Your not free – mistaken obsession

Morbid courage
Morbid and lost

Freed is lost
You choose the evil path

Your life – disgrace
You’ll pay for what you caused

DEATH!

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernada Lira Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

The line is formed, wait for your turn, it’s going to come
Your are not alone and not going to die alone
There is a wall of people like you, afraid and crying, begging for life
Memories from your past, despair in your mind, the time has come

Bullet in the skin
Bullet in the head

Draining blood
Aiming The target
The end, the execution

Death! Death! Death!
Death! Death! Death! Shots fired

What was your sin? Why are you there? Do you deserve it?
Is if fair? Is it right? Is it wrong? What is justice?
Is it a education matter? Is it a religion matter?
Is it a culture matter?
What is going on?

INTO MOSHPIT

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Join the army, get in the violent mosh
Metal taking over
Arise your fistful of metal
Join the art of partying
Don’t care (about) the morning after

Bangers are bonded by blood
So the legacy survive
There’s no space for ignorance
There’s no malicious intent

No illusions
Grin on face
Show no mercy
This is thrash zone

The most terror squad
Is possessed by fire
Extreme aggression
Metal pandemonium

Into moshpit
Into moshpit
Into moshpit
Into moshpit

DEEP MISERY

Hunger compresses the stomach, despair increasing
Skin and bones, weakness, anemia and diseases

The cold from the ground freezes the sould
People despise deep misery
Who cares, does nothing change
Tis is no impossible for anyone

Anybody cares?
Anybody care?

The pain not to be nothing
the pain not to ben anyone anyone
The pain not to be anymore
The pain to be exclude

Deep misery
Deep misery
Deep misery
Deep misery

The pain of hunger is not a reason
People pretend not to see
Who care, dones not contribute
Any you can be in this situation

Repeat chorus

A bother of a hard ground bring pain
People ignore what they see
Who cares, doesn’t really help others
This can not happen to you, you are not free

Anybody cares?
Anybody cares?

VICTIM OF YOURSELF
Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

The real you isn’t what you show
Your Not authentic
Blame others for your flaws
It is easier than admitting them

A lack inside, hidden by pride
Victim’s the hurt child lying inside

CHORUS

Victim of
Victim of yourself
Victim of
Victim of yourself

It is the only way to get your need’s satisfaction
It is the only way you’ll get attention
It is the only way you’ll deserve compassion
It is the only way you can fell you’re special

REPEAT CHORUS

You think you’re always right
Never Swallow your pride
Don’t admit your wrong
Hurt the ones who love you

REPEAT CHORUS

Created a safe, lunatic world to run from yourself
Afraid, you know you’ll be alone when truth overcome this lies

(Your) freak attitudes will come back to you
Don’t say you got nothing to do with the disgrace

REPEAT CHORUS

It is the only way (you) play the kid forever
It is the only way you won’t admit your shallow
But beware you’re creating your own prison
You’ll only become crazy, faker and alone

REPEAT CHORUS

After a short intro entitled Intro and it starts of with LOUD cracking of thunder lighting and a creaking gate, and machine gun fire, and has a totally ominous vibe, that every fan of metal should be able to enjoy and notice the screams in the background, and the RIFF @ the 56 second mark displays why Prika Amaral is KICK*ASS*METALS favorite guitar player who was voted # 20 world-wide of all time, as the greatest guitarist in not only traditional metal but true metal, what later became known as extreme metal. This piece of music from 56 – 2:00 minutes mark is totally mind-blowing and jaw dropping, and a sight to behold.

Twisted Values is up first and this song is a perfect example why Prika Amaral is a top 20 ranked / rated Guitarist of all time With KICK*ASS*METAL and it subsidiary the KICK*ASS*METAL heavy metal hall of fame.

Prika Starts the proceeding with one of the most unique guitar tones I have heard in a longtime.

And a 54 second in Nervosa demonstrates why they are one of the most original and most important bands of the decade of 2010 and of all time.

By 229 Prika Amaral executes a rather awesome guitar solo.

Justice Be Done starts of with a rather unique riff and the song builds up nicely then around the 33 second mark the Nervosa trade mark sound is in full effect. Around the 108 mark excellent vocals provide by BOTH Fernanda Lira, and Prika Amaral. The solo @ the 140 mark will have your jaw on the floor and ends around the 2 minute mark. Fernada Lira sounds unreal on this one, make Fernada Lira the most magnificent most original metal vocalist of the decade 2010 and of all time

Wake Up and Fight is up next by the tome of 1 minute in the Prika Amaral guitar tone really gets to shine. Lots of genius to the songwriting on the music on this song at this point. Fernanada Lira really shines as a world-class vocalist on this song. The solo at the 245 mark is rather breath-taking and will send chills up and down your spine. This song is a total metal CRUNCHER.

Nasty Injury starts off with the one-of-kind guitar tone of Prika Amaral and around the 40 second mark Nervosa gets into high Nervosa thrash gear before the two-minute mark Prika Amaral does some excellent riff work then around the 2:10 mark some excellent riff and rhythm work is excecuted by Prika Amaral. The solo @ the 2:20 – 2:27 mark is totally well written and executed by World Class Guitarist Prika Amaral. And the rhythm section work by Fernanda Lira and Pitch Ferraz is totally mind blowning a perfect in all songwriting aspect. The songs main riff is used throughout the 3 minutes mark

Envious is up next. The Solo at the 2:14 mark is executed very well and demonstrates why Prika Amaral is a top rated in the top 20 of all time at kick ass metal. And Fernada Lira does some world-class bass work @ the 2:20 mark. Then @ the 2:26 mark Prika Amaral writes one of the most head banging riffs of the 21st century. The guitar tone of Prika Amaral that I love the most is on display @ the 2:40 mark. The song picks up pace then @ the 3:40 mark the song down shift into bone cruching metal style, the kind of songwriting that is perfect for head banging.

Morbid Courage is up next, and starts of Prika Amaral’s signature one-of-a-kind guitar tone. And has an excellent song build up in terms of intensity and heaviness in the fist minutes. Morbid Courage has excellent Lira/ Amaral vocal exchanges in the 1 and a half-minute mark. There is a perfect example of Pitchu Ferraz world clas drumming style @ the 1:50-1:58 mark. @ the 1:58 mark the song downs shifts for an excellent Prika Amaral solo, @ the 2:05 second mark.

Death! is up next and is one of the Greatest, written Metallic songs of all time. Prika Amaral displays every aspect of her unique and original style. I have watched the legendary video for over 7, 899 times by now since it was released around a month ago. The guitar solo starts @ the 1:22 mark and is well written and executed perfectly by metal axepert Prika Amaral. And last to the 1:54 mark. @ the 2 minute mark, the song is totally in the pocket, At the 3;00 minutes mark the Prika Amaral one-of-a-kind guitar tone is one display again in all its metallic glory.

THE GUITAR SOLO on DEATH! is one of KICK*ASS*METAL’S personal favorites of all time. Our jaws were on the floor on this one. 100% world-class dedication to her instrument.

Into Moshpit is up next and @ the 40 second mark, once can hear a totally unique and original riff executed by Prika Amaral. The guitar work provide by Prika Amaral in the 1st minute of this song can only be called original and world-class, and is provides total Nervosa thrash metal evocation. @ the 1:07 mark there is a totally KICK*ASS*METAL riff written and executed by Prika Amaral, it is because of guitar work like this, that Prika Amaral will forever be remembered as the most important, original, and magnificent guitarist of the 21st Century. Nervosa is not retro-this or retro-that, but a band that will survive the test of time. I am totally addicted to this song, because of Prika Amaral awesome guitar tones. The solo is @ the 3:14 mark, and is pretty mind-blowing and pretty stellar and world-class

Vicitm of Yourself is up next. And starts of with a totally original riff a PRIKA AMARAL riff, you can tell in a micro-second who Prika Amaral is over the other 92, 999 guitarist who also play metal. What one notices immediately about Prika Amaral is that Prika is a one-of-a-kind and a true original. @ The 48 second mark a killer song writing part takes place. Victim of Yourself the song, has one of the greatest riffs not just of the decade 2010, but of all time.

Uranio Em Nos…aka via translation means something similar to “Uranium in” * And this song starts with an AIR RAID siren. And that is just songwriting genius. The CD’s closer has a lot of excellent metal vibes because it is sung in Nervosa native language giving the song a nice personalized aspect from the songwriters point of view. World Class job on this song and the whole album.

I love Nervosa

and

I am a NERVOSA-thrasher 4 life !!!!!!

Drummer/vocalist Dan Beehler of Canadian thrash metal pioneers EXCITER spoke to Australia’s Metal Mal about the band’s plans to release new music. He said (hear audio below): “We’re just working on a new album right now. We’re gonna be shopping a demo in the next few months, and as soon as we secure a deal, we’ll record the album. And it’ll be obviously with [new guitarist] Daniel Dekay. It’s 2020 EXCITER. And we’re pretty excited about it. We really wanna get a new record out there.”

Beehler also talked about the addition of Dekay, who replaced original guitarist John Ricci in late 2018.

Al [bassist Allan Johnson] and I feel like we’re in the best version of EXCITER ever,” Dan said. “[Daniel] lives in Toronto, but he’s originally from Ottawa, our hometown. And through friends and family members, and through my daughter, he’s been a friend for many years. And he was in a local band called AGGRESSOR, which I’ve seen many times. [I’ve] met his dad many times.

“A lot of guitarists sent in stuff on the Internet, because they knew John had left the band and they wanted to try out for the band,” he continued. “And God bless them, and there was tons of really good guitarists, but as soon as Dekay called me, I just knew that he was the guy, because I knew his character, I knew how he could play, I knew just about everything about him. And I told Al, and Al said, ‘I don’t even wanna listen to any more of the list,’ and I said, ‘We’ll just respect any of those guys that sent stuff in.’ And he came out for the first rehearsal and did the whole set for the first show, and it was like he’d been playing with us for years. He’s such a great player and he’s so good on stage. Everybody says he’s the ‘kid,’ but he’s super professional at what he does and handles all of our business and stuff. That was a bonus. So we really lucked out. It’s like we got a family member instead of going out into the world and getting somebody and bringing him into EXCITER and getting to know them. It’s like we’ve known him for years. So we really lucked out getting Dekay. We’re super happy with him.”

Johnson previously told The Metal Voice that Ricci‘s exit from EXCITER was “still somewhat of a mystery… He didn’t give a solid reason why,” he said. “I don’t know what he meant by ‘fed up,’ but he said he was fed up. I confirmed with him. I said, ‘Are you sure about this?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I’m definitely out.'”

Ricci previousy left EXCITER in 1985 following the release of the band’s first three classic albums — “Heavy Metal Maniac” (1983), “Violence & Force” (1984) and “Long Live the Loud” (1985).

EXCITER‘s latest album, “Death Machine”, which featured Ricci as the sole remaining original member, was released in October 2010 via Massacre Records.

RicciBeehler and Johnson reunited as EXCITER in 2014 and had been playing sporadic shows for four years before John‘s latest exit from the group.

 

 

 

 

Nita Strauss, the Los Angeles-based guitar shredder for the ALICE COOPER band, has confirmed that her second solo album is “very well on the way.”

Strauss‘s upcoming disc, which is tentatively due in late 2020, will be the follow-up to her first solo album, “Controlled Chaos”, released in 2018 via Sumerian Records.

Nita offered an update on the next LP in an interview with Australian Musician during last month’s Cooper tour of Australia. She said (see video below): “Album two is on the way. It’s very well on the way, actually. I’ve got my Universal Audio Apollo out on the road. I’ve got it set up in the hotel room just about every single day off and just recording stuff, getting ideas down. We will finish here Down Under, I think, next week, and I’ll go home. I’ll have three weeks home that I can really go and laser in. I’m planning to get a big bulk of the writing for the album done. Then we go on and finish with Alice for the summer. And then after that, it’ll be all, I think, ‘Controlled Chaos’ until the fall.”

Last year, Nita told the Long Island, New York radio station 94.3 The Shark that she didn’t have any reservations about putting out an album of instrumentals with “Controlled Chaos”.

“Everyone said that I had to put out some tracks with vocals — that was the vast consensus among the people in the industry,” she recalled. “And I have to say I’m really glad that Josh [VillaltaNita‘s longtime boyfriend and manager] and I stuck to our guns and I put out the album I wanted to make. Maybe I could have made more money if I would have made it more marketable, maybe I could have had more success and [gotten airplay] on bigger radio stations and what have you, but it wouldn’t have been the album I wanted to make.”

The 11-track “Controlled Chaos” was a challenge to Strauss and an opportunity for her to reconnect with what inspired her to start playing guitar when she was just 13 years old.

“I started playing guitar because of instrumental guitar music,” she said. “All my real heroes made instrumental albums. All my own career has been spent playing in bands, but I never forgot that dream of what inspired me to pick up the guitar in the first place.”

“Controlled Chaos” reached No. 1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers Albums chart and No. 6 on the Hard Rock Albums chart.

Nita‘s live show is mostly instrumental in nature, combining originals with covers.

Strauss has been playing with Alice Cooper since 2014 when she replaced Australian musician and former Michael Jackson player Orianthi. She joined Alice in time for a mammoth MÖTLEY CRÜE tour. She was recommended to Cooper by the legendary rocker’s former bass player and WINGER frontman Kip Winger.

The fall, two of the most promising bands in modern melodic metal will join forces to flash Europe with an amazing tour across the countries. AMARANTHE and BEYOND THE BLACK kick off their joint European co-headline tour in Munich on November 13 to spread the news of a new metal generation across the continent.

Olof MörckAMARANTHE‘s guitarist and founding member, states: “Hot of the heels of our fantastic tour with SABATONAMARANTHE are now incredibly enthusiastic about playing full-length sets all across Europe this fall! We will share the bill with our German comrades-in-arms BEYOND THE BLACK, so expect a full evening of ponderous melodic metal set to satisfy even the most fastidious connoisseur of the heavy arts! You can expect a lot from our shows on this run; a completely novel visual experience, a pristine new set list — and quite a bit of NEW music! Don’t miss this absolute titan of a tour, when it stops by a city near you this autumn!”

BEYOND THE BLACK frontwoman Jennifer Haben adds: “We’re thrilled to join forces with our friends in AMARANTHE for the biggest headline tour both bands have ever played. BEYOND THE BLACK and AMARANTHE together is a perfect fit and we’re more than ready to make these nights huge!”

Last month, AMARANTHE released a brand new song featuring former ARCH ENEMY vocalist Angela Gossow“Do Or Die” was accompanied by a dystopian horror video filmed in Spain, featuring Fardou Keuning‘s stunning creations.

Last fall, AMARANTHE announced it had signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast for the release of its sixth studio album, due later this year.

AMARANTHE will embark on a North American headlining tour in the summer/fall of 2020. The 37-date trek will kick-off at the Soundstage in Baltimore on August 20 and will make stops in Chicago, Vancouver and Denver before concluding on October 2 at the Riverfront Live in Cincinnati, Ohio. Support on the trek will come Finnish metallers BATTLE BEAST and the Boston symphonic metal band SEVEN SPIRES.

With its foundations tracing back to 2008, AMARANTHE has released five albums thus far, consistently delivering hauntingly catchy tunes led by their unique three-part vocals. Within their arsenal of hit singles, a myriad tracks have been received very well via press and fans alike; having also gained countless plays on both radio stations around the globe and across streaming services (the group’s songs have been streamed more than 100 million times on Spotify). A string of support tours has blazed AMARANTHE‘s trail in front of huge crowds as well as at their own headline concerts (the group impressively once performed in front of 10,000 fans at Liseberg, Gothenburg). They have kept working incredibly hard over the years, the latest product of which culminated in the form of 2018’s “Helix”, which achieved them some of their highest chart positions in the band’s history.
