Metalcore… a bit of a modern sound, but mostly straightforward and catchy like they’re known for.

Van Canto
To The Power Of Eight
Napalm Records
All a-capella metal, (with the exception of a drummer)… a bit laid back for the most part on these singles, else, it’s more of a power metal feel… unique and interesting…it’d be cool to see them live.

Sorizon
Thanatos Rising
Starscape Records
This has a proggy melodic death thing going on… definitely under the prog metal umbrella with clean and harsh vox with a melodic music sound getting a bit heavier and thrashy/heavy too. Cool stuff.

Another in the reissue chain… remastered… and a good excuse to revisit some Sabbath you forgot, or never really got into in the first place because it was before your time (guilty!)
