Switzerland’s finest recent export, SYBREED return to industrial metal majesty with The Pulse Of Awakening, which was produced by FEAR FACTORY producer Rhys Fulber and engineered by guitarist Drop. Baptizing their modern wall of sound as “Death Wave,” SYBREED unleash a new and fresh mix of extreme metal, industrial and icy melodies. Also, the artwork was created by Seth Anton Siro (VADER, PARADISE LOST, SEPTIC FLESH). The Pulse Of Awakening is set for a July 13th North American release.
France generally isn’t the first, second, third, or fourth European country you think of when you think of “metal,” but France’s SCARVE is putting their stamp on the metal world one album at a time. 2004’s impressive Irradiant piqued ears and garnered comparisons to MESHUGGAH and STRAPPING YOUNG LAD. That year also saw drummer, Dirk Verbeuren, join Sweden’s SOILWORK. Despite seemingly unending singer woes, SCARVE dropped their latest, The Undercurrent, to an unsuspecting public. The Undercurrent is a dynamic album of gobsmacking technical metallic goodness. APESHIT pinned down the ever-busy Dirk to tell us more about France’s latest stars on the up and up.
