Review: Metal Mondays, March 6th, 2017Written by James Cross
Bringing back Metal Mondays for the first time in a while! We've had a drought of good heavy music coming our way, so it's been too long. This week we have X-Vivo, Xombie, and Chelsea Rockwells.
Based in Berlin, alt-metal/industrial band X-Vivo combine elements sounding like Nine Inch Nails and Rammstein, resulting in a solid NDH sound. After hearing "Aphelion", I'll definitely be keeping this band on my radar - their album Petrichor will be released on April 29th of this year.
Xombie is a rap metal group from New York City. "Might As Well" is a single from the band's upcoming album, Super Cell.
Australian hard rock trio Chelsea Rockwells recently released the song "Halos", which stems from their upcoming debut EP. The heavy hitting song has a nice groove to it, with strong vocals and a solid rhythm section. The band's sound reminds me a lot of fellow Australians, Sick Puppies.
Until the next time we have enough great submissions for Metal Mondays!
