Top 5 Heavy Metal Albums Released In April, 2015

Heavy Metal expert, Chad Bowar, of suggests 5 top album for month April. Here we go:

1.  Byzantine - 'To Release Is To Resolve' (Snakepit)

Byzantine continue to blend various genres such as groove metal, death metal, post thrash and progressive into a style all their own.That makes for a diverse album, both musically and vocally.  One difference on To Release Is To Resolve is that the band has written some longer, more epic tracks.
Byzantine went the crowdfunding route on this album and raised more than their goal. That shows that fans were hungry for new material, and To Release Is To Resolve delivers the goods. That bodes well for the success of a talented band who deserve more exposure, and the quality of this album should open more doors for them.

A deluxe digipack edition that includes several bonus cover songs will be released later in the year.

The band has areleased a lyric video for new track "Matrix Hacked," which can be viewed at this location.

Check out the "Dark Matter teaser" video here.

Though DISTANT SUN's main influences are speed and power metal bands like ANNIHILATOR, ICED EARTH, BLIND GUARDIAN and RAGE, listeners will note a James Hetfield (METALLICA) vocal style. No keyboards or drum samples were used during the recording, and the overall sound brings the feel of the heavy '90s. The drums on "Dark Matter" were recorded in Kiev, Ukraine, while the remainder was produced in various Moscow studios. The lyrics deal with a variety of topics, including science fiction, space travel, mysticism, fantasy and adventure. The cover art was designed by W. Smerdulak (ARKONA).

HANSEL Unveil '69 Minutes with Hansel' Album Details‏

Australian hard rockers HANSEL will release their new album, “69 Minutes … with Hansel!” on June 15, 2015 via Prime EON Media on CD. HANSEL‘s “69 minutes … with Hansel” is a culmination of the album “Never Say Die” & their 2 hard to find EPs, “Mission To Rock” & “Fluorescent Blue Lights” that collects all the 20 roaring tracks that the band has recorded up to this point from way back when it all started back in 2008, somewhere down under.

HANSEL are five dudes bound by an oath of Rock ‘n’ Roll. They roam the wastelands of standard, boring, paper dry, modern Brit pop bands, leaving them in their wake with their big hair, big anthem, hard hitting, glam rock style.
