DYSTERSOL – ‘The Fifth Age of Man’! A crushing modern metal bundle you should definitely check it out!

Dystersol strike back with their second full-length since 2014, entitled ‘The Fifth Age of Man’. The Album contains 14 new tracks lasting 55 minutes and it was released on WormHoleDeath on May 4th, 2018.

Heavy, shattering guitar riffs, groovy deep bass lines, crushing double bass drums and mighty orchestras and synths provide the solid basis for uncompromising growling and screaming voices. Dystersol’s style can’t be assigned to one specific genre, but is definitely exciting for everyone who loves to bang their head to modern heavy music.

About the Album
The whole album takes place during the Five Ages of Man described by Hesoid, Ovid and other ancient Greek writers. The tracks focus on the Iron Age, the last age of humanity, where people live in misery and kill each other for literally nothing.

The stories wander through time, leaving one constant element: beings falling from grace while trying to achieve progress and knowledge for Mankind. From Prometheus (“the one who stole the flame”, “the bringer of fire” in tracks) over the snake in paradise, to the Morning Star (“the shining one”). In the end, as described in Ovid’s Ages of Man, humanity is not able to handle these technical progresses, thus leading to the Fifth Age.

The Album introduces an allegoric figure which is referred to many times throughout the tracks: The Winterking. A king for one winter, rising with a blaze, disappearing again soon, waiting on frozen plains for his return. Referring to Prometheus and the Morning Star, it is based on the historical figure of Frederik V, representing a quick rise and having enormous impact on the whole world, even though everybody already knows that the time for this person is restricted.

However, the album is not about retelling mythological stories, but on connoting their meaning to modern times and personal concerns. As a consequence, the tracks leave a lot of room for interpretation, and many lyrics can be transferred to refer to one’s personal situation. In the end, the album leaves an oppressive and concerning connotation: The world in its Fifth Age is fucked up.

Egoistic motives have destroyed the whole planet for decades, and exploited people at the end of the food chain hunt each other down for worthless things

Since 2013, Taste of Greed are performing kick-ass Melodic Thrash Metal. The five lads from Hamburg create a raging but virtuous thrash bastard, which is feasting on the elements of pure and aggressive music as well as modern and more progressive sounds.

A combination of brutal up-tempo riffs, heavy breakdowns and furious shouts and growls are clashing on piercing melodic parts and double-guitar leads. This meal is delicious, but in the end the pure combination of the finest ingredients of the contemporary Metal cuisine whet your appetite and leaves you craving for more!

Built-in Obsolescence – INSTAR



Built-in Obsolescence is a musical project born in Riccione (Italy) in 2010. The band started composing songs inspired to various metal genres, developing in time a sound akin to Alternative and Progressive Metal with Post Rock and Ambient influences. Introspective and dark themes are intertwined with the band instrumental composition, leading to vivid journeys into humanity’s behaviours, its hopes and troubles.



1. Dance of Falling Leaves
2. Sine Requie
3. The Wave
4. Ground Launch Sequencer
5. Project: Almaz
6. Watching the Wake
7. Shara
8. Lashes
9. Biotronic
10. AD 9878
11. Ecdysis

Instar is a phase of development in the life of arthropods. The animal periodically leaves its vital protection, its exoskeleton. Then, soft and vulnerables are ready to new growth and a new armour will form. In this LP the human being is seen as a moulting insect, changing shape, but nonetheless ever connected to a greater ambient embracing him.

The album concept is expressed through stories and abstract lyrics revolving around hopes and delusions, reality and illusions. Narration starts with Dance of Falling Leaves, an abrupt realisation of the inexorable flow of time in which are scattered mellow memories. Time soothe man like the breeze lull leaves on trees. The same time that strips leaves from branches and delusions from minds. This is a recurring image in the subsequent songs. The album end with a long, abstract and profound composition: Ecdysis is humanity’s last observation of itself, out of space and time, before embracing change.



Lineup, Valerio Biagini – bass guitar Gianmarco Ciotti – guitar Bruno Galli – drums Paolo Sanchi – vocals Alex Semprini – guitar
