Kadinja, hailing from Paris, France, are a Progressive Metal // Technical Progressive band with Djent elements mixed in for good measure! The band released their full-length album ‘Ascendancy’ in 2017 via Klonosphere / Season of Mist. The debut album went on to be praised by fans and the media as complex metal that is needed in the scene right now, and soon exposed the band to amazing touring opportunities, sharing stages with bands like Animals As Leaders, Devin Townsend Project, Klone, Adagio, The Algorithm and Betraying The Martyrs! Only a year after releasing their debut album, in Spring 2018 they jumped back into the studio where they were to record the already written second album ‘Super 90’’. They named the album ‘Super 90’’ because it’s from an era they miss a lot – the 90’s. Let’s see what these boys have got for us this time around! Spoiler alert: the results are pretty good.
Texas post-hardcore band Crown The Empire has released another new song, “Weight Of The World”, off their new album Retrograde. The new single is bound to be rather polarizing to CTE fans. It’s a song that sounds like it would fit very well on rock radio stations, but given the career arc that like minded bands like Of Mice And Men have embarked on, makes this not a bad thing at all. You can decide for yourself below. The band is promoting the new album all summer long on the Vans Warped Tour.
