CD Review: Metal Music Breaks Through With I Will Break Thee and Grenouer

Last year saw the release of two independent metal albums that are beginning to gain attention from the hard rock/heavy metal community. From Orlando, FL comes heavy metal band, I Will Break Thee with their debut album "Welcome To My Kingdom." The album was originally released in 2011, but has caught the attention of many in the music industry. You instantly notice the variety of singing styles from vocalist Shane Bryant, from screaming to soft harmonies as displayed in "The Irony of Humanity." The duel guitar attack of Justin Lunsford and Rafiq Basaria gives the songs "Bloodguilt" and "Element" that extra punch that rattles your brain. Their aggression comes out full steam on "Hell To Pay," before finishing with the two part epic "The Suffering," which shows a more progressive side to the band.

I Will Break Thee currently has only on show scheduled for this evening in their hometown of Orlando. Be sure to check out for more information in this band as they begin to takeover the metal spotlight.


From Russia comes heavy metal band Grenouer with their latest release "Computer Crime." The album was also originally released back in 2011 through Copro Records (UK) and has been making its way to the U.S. The five song EP  features some of Grenouer's best songwriting including the heavy hitting "Rejected" and "Fix Your Life." The band slows down for "See No Sun," which finds Grenouer paying their own tribute to Black Sabbath's "Planet Caravan." Then finishes the album with the industrial power ballad "Golden Years."

Granour currently have not dates scheduled, but stay tuned to for more information.
