Short post to say Sun-Signed’s #9-11 will be back online shortly. Offline due to a small technical hiccup at the moment. Continue reading Update! Sun-Signed #9 – #11
Usual Sun-Signed intro, welcome to our weekly look at the best unsigned bands the metal world has to offer (or the best out of what band/PR companies contacted us and made our lives easier). This week is the turn of a one man band from the Netherlands, Algos. If you like your death metal mixed with elements of doom, prog and every genre under the sun, this is for you.
It’s Sunday which means Sun-Signed time. This week we focus on power metal band, Savage Wizdom from the USA. As usual, if you want to be featured here, have a band you want represented here or just know of a band to check out, let us know and we will make it so.
Australia brings us our Sun-Signed artist this week; Wings of Thanatos, a death metal band with symphonic and progressive edges. As ever, if you want your band featured here send us an email and we’ll make it so. There’s a backlog but we’re catching up.
For those of you new to Sun-Signed, we post about unsigned metal bands on a Sunday, usually reviewing an album and talking briefly about the band. This week is Wilderun from the US.
As a side note, one of the main problems with the Sun-Signed format is that it’s restricted to a Sunday because of a silly pun based name. This of course leads to trouble if we can’t post on a Sunday, therefore we may start cheating and allow a post on a Saturday or a Monday… it’s probably Sunday somewhere in the world after all, good old time zones. So if you have been in contact about getting reviewed, you’ll be up shortly.
Welcome to Sun-Signed #5. This week we look to Greece and the thrash metal band Amken.
It’s Sunday, which means we’re once again turning to the world of unsigned metal. This week is the turn of a one man death metal band from Ireland; Sonus Mortis. The new album, War Prophecy, drops on the 31st of March, until then you can catch up on the previous release here on Bandcamp
Another Sunday, another unsigned band to promote. This week we turn to Germany’s Strangelet, a heavy rock band from Heilbronn. As always, if you want your band promoted here, send us an email (it’s in the contacts tab at the top!). Continue reading “Sun-Signed #3: Strangelet”
Welcome to Sun-signed, a Sunday based salute to the unsigned metal bands of the world! This week we focus on Comaniac, a four piece thrash band from Switzerland (I know it’s Monday and this thing is meant to be on a Sunday, but with the hard drive’s death everything is running out of time.). Our thanks go to frontman Jonas Schmid for sitting down and answering some of our questions for this piece. Continue reading “Sun-Signed #2: Comaniac”
Welcome to the first Sun-Signed, a weekly spotlight on a Sunday on unsigned or unknown metal and rock from around the world. A bit of clarification before the angry e-mails come in, unsigned may not always be strictly true, a band on a small indie label will still get a mention. Sun-Signed is catchier than “Bands Not Signed To Metal Blade/Nuclear Blast/Napalm Records/EMI Or Any Major” though, so it stays!
