With a steely riff, hypnotic beats and distorted vocals that barely betray earthly origins, V2A open the eternal gates to the underworld, and with their new album ‘Heretic’, ring in the soundtrack to the planet’s downfall!
Morbidly threatening visions of abnormal worlds appear before your inner eye as the German/British project ruminates on Valhalla and gradually sets you into a trance. The apocalyptic sound constructions, produced by the two creative heads Kevin Stewart (alias 304) and Ines Lehmann (alias 306), oscillate between EBM and industrial, enriched by dystopian technoid sounds.
‘Heretic’ comes across as being extremely hard, yet more focused, targeted and cinematic than anything that came before. V2A undergo constant evolution, moving in a maelstrom of innovative energies. With ‘Heretic’, they will once again conquer the black cyber temples of the Earth’s kingdom, leaving them in dust and ashes.
Those who were able to experience V2A on their previous tours, where they supported greats such as suicide commando, Combichrist, Funker Vogt and NACHTMAHR, will know what sort of hot steel these ambitious machine builders produce. ‘Heretic’ is the impressive foundation stone for their future. Mad Max would be really proud of them!

What would have happened if LINKIN PARK would have continued with their nu metal of the 2000s by adding modern Djent-sounds as well as a theme revolving around the video games culture, all sprinkled with cynical punchlines and dark humor. The new double album of SMASH HIT COMBO would clearly be the worthy heir.
The name "L33T" (literally, "language of the elite") is a writing system using alphanumeric characters and being used by computer hackers. It is an international language that perfectly matches the concept of the new album of our 6 gamers from Alsace (France): 24 new songs, 12 in French and 12 in English, that are sung by the famous and talented rapper None Like Joshua (NLJ) from Atlanta (USA).
After their latest successful album "Playmore" which gave a big high kick to the nu metal genre, after their many tours in France, Japan, Russia and Canada, as well as many shows with bands like LIMP BIZKIT, GOJIRA , WALLS OF JERICHO, (Hed) PE, HACKTIVIST or MASS HYSTERIA, SMASH HIT COMBO are coming back with this uncompromising album and are determined to beat all the end bosses to place their new source code at the top of the international nu metal page.
Be ready for a festival of fatalities and special guitar strokes, but also for an international masterpiece alternating melodious songs in LINKIN PARK 2.0 mode and adrenaline power ups that will take you to the final stage of the nu metal of modern times.

Again, time has come for pure emotion from Russia!
With their new album “Poison” OMNIMAR provide the next masterpiece, that already announced itself by the single-release “Out of my Life” in a more than convincing way.
The previous album “Start” has already attracted attention in the scene, so that among others the gothic-magazine “Orkus” already acknowledged OMNIMAR with long reviews.
Emotional as we know them, the russian musicians are providing us with goosebumps: More spherical and darker than ever before, OMNIMAR successfully handle the balancing act of musical progress and preservation of their unique and typical sound, that in the past already enchanted their fans. But also tracks like “Boom Boom”, that has the potential for the next dancefloor-hit, ensure a nice and well-rounded contrast towards the dark and emotional tracks, that directly find their way towards the listeners heart.
So whoever doesn’t want to miss the next chapter in the success-story of OMNIMAR, should definitely be ready for the new album “Poison”!
"White coats around me, medications to help me. This venom that makes me sleep, that heals me, but scares me. White coats around me, I never want to see. This venom that makes me sleep, take me for eternity."
