INTERVIEW: Nemesea


Dutch alternative rock band Nemesea released their fourth album, Uprise, on April 29 via Napalm Records which we featured on the site last month.  Recently Manda, Sonny and HJ took some time to talk to Femetalism about the new album and the bands plans for the future.

Thanks for taking the time to talk to Femetalism. For those readers who might not know the band, can you introduce yourselves and tell us a little about the band and how you came to be?

Hi and thanks for the questions :) Well, Nemesea is a rock band coming from the Netherlands. We started the band back in 2002. During our first years we toured with After Forever and recorded a symphonic metal-oriented album called 'Mana'. After that we decide to head into another direction and chose release an album through an online-crowd funding company called Sellaband. The result was a more rock-oriented album with lots of electronic influences called 'In Control'. A few years later we performed a couple of unique live shows in omni-surround/ 9.1 and released this on cd and 5.1 dvd. A few years ago we signed with NapalmRecords and released our 3rd studio album called 'The Quiet Resistance'. Since April 2016 there is the newest release called 'Uprise'.

New Release: Deadlock - Hybris (July 2016)


Deadlock are a German melodic death metal band who have always been about extremes, mixing up death metal, technical prowess, borderline pop-laden melodies, nods to classic metal, and casual flirtation with trance and beats in their musical offerings.

Following some line-up changes, including new vocalist Margie Gerlitz, their upcoming full-length album Hybris turns out to be a multi-faceted monster in terms of both shape and content!

New Release: High Fighter - Scars & Crosses (June 2016)


Hamburg based heavy stoner, sludge / power doom band High Fighter, whose first full length album comes out this Friday June 10th on Svart Records, have just unleashed a full album stream for their debut Scars & Crosses.

Formed in the summer of 2014 by former band members of A Million Miles, Buffalo Hump and Pyogenesis, this band is a volatile cocktail of heavy as hell riffs fuelled by beer and the mighty weedian riffs. Add a heavy dose of the blues and these deadly schizophrenic vocals, and these guys and girl offer something special to the Sludge, Blues and Stoner Scene. After their critically acclaimed debut EP The Goat Ritual released end of 2014, followed by numerous shows over Europe including UK dates, festivals, several tours and shows with bands such as Ahab, Mammoth Storm, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, The Midnight Ghost Train & many more, High Fighter will release their first and full length album 'Scars & Crosses' on June 10th 2016 with Svart Records.

Leaves' Eyes - Edge of Steel Video


While there has been lots of controversy surrounding Leaves' Eyes of late, we here at Femetalism feel somewhat flabbergasted and disgusted by the unnecessary insults and name calling that their new vocalist Elina Siirala has endured. We have followed Elina for some time now with her band enkElination (Angel Nation) and having seen her perform live numerous times can vouch for her awesome credentials. As for Leaves' Eyes, while I cannot deny they have had a long and successful career and that there music was good, I didn't have much of their music and I managed to miss them perform numerous times. I watched the new video expecting to be neither blown away nor offended, and I have to say that the video for Edge of Steel is fabulous and I am genuinely looking forward to hearing more from them and seeing how they move forward together as a band.
