In July 2014, the Chaos Blast Compilation 014 revealed a new title from the band Grand Massive. Then, in January 2015, the band released a video of another new song, Sound of War. Finally, the new EP was presented to the public in its entirety in February 2015.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Or more, I would say. How difficult is it to describe a painting? The brightness of the colors, the play of shades, or just the general feeling a picture inspires you. You can try, of course, but in order to really understand it, you need to see it, to experience it. So is Art. So is Music. So is Tanertill.
With time and discoveries, a Metalhead usually goes heavier with his music. Always louder, faster. Many of us started with Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Slayer, to end up listening to more extreme genres. I am among these people, and I really enjoy my lovely Death Metal. But sometimes, it is also nice, and necessary I think, to remember where we are from, and to go back to our origins. The roots of Metal. Rock and Heavy Metal. Some today’s bands belong to this stream, and bring back a similar sound, with their own style of course. This is how I consider Grand Massive. This is how I feel them. Lighter than what I usually listen to, but a band inspired by the foundations of Metal and by something very close to my Black Heart, Rock.
Six years without any album. Six damned years. Crowbar’s fans were all over the place with “Sever the Wicked Hand” in 2011. Not only because we had new material to hear, but also because a new album usually means a tour. That’s how the Beards took over Munich.
