The Shiva Hypothesis-Promo 2015

Artist: 
The Shiva Hypothesis
Release: 
Promo 2015
Label: 
Self-released

The Shiva Hypothesis are a black/death metal band from Twente, Netherlands. They were formed in 2012 and up to date they have released only one EP, the one I am about to review. The band consists of the members ML (bass, keys, additional vocals, songwriting), JB (guitar and songwriting), BN (drums) and MvS (vocals). What took three years to release just one EP consisted of three songs was the pursuit of finding the right way of expression and interpretation of music.

Henrietta-Dead By Dawn

Artist: 
Henrietta
Release: 
Dead By Dawn
Label: 
Sliptrick Records

If yours metal thirst begs for some zombie putrid blood in the form of Dutch thrash metal, then you are reading the right review my friend! Since you started reading, you can as well finish it and find out more how Henrietta can make you feel better. The band originates from the Netherlands and yes they had the usual line-up changes and problems. It’s not quite common for young bands to change their names the first time the original line-up twists, yet Henrietta have done it, not only once – but twice in five years.

 Here we have the latest album “No Image” from the band “GOLD”, coming from Rotterdam (The Netherlands), it was founded in December 2011 and basically their music style falls under a “Post-everything-Dark Rock” genre.

TPOE Machine District

Artist: 
TPOE
Release: 
Machine District
Label: 
Vendetta Music

"Machine District" is the new album for The Peoples Republic Of Europe.I must say that I was familiar with them,since I had listened to their tunes in the past. I should also admit that the thing that originally made me develop an interest for this group was their name! I loved it really and so, I went on to find more on this band.Second factor that arose my interest is their origin:being from the Netherlands, they are one of the few industrial/electro acts emerging from this country (the most famous of which is obviously,Grendel).
