With 15 years of experience and a clenched fist, El Caco’s latest album simply titled "7" will hit the streets on January 15, 2016.
The band, which has remained a trio since beginning in 1998, has released almost a full shelf of records, with exponentially more successful results each time. About "7" the group can confidently share that "this is a record that will take you through an eclectic landscape and draw out a hunger in you never felt before."
On this album, El Caco has whipped a creamy cream of both rock & roll, grunge, and stoner rock in a manner worthy of the band's name. The recording was done in Bergen, more specifically in Earshot Studios mixed by Herbrand Larsen (Enslaved). All recording was done with live accompaniment to give it an extra authentic vibe. "Everything to make the mix closer to a live performance," the band states.

Finland based braindead thrash metallers Lost Society are very pleased to announce the publication of their third record fittingly titled "Braindead." The album is set to be released on February 12th, 2016 via Nuclear Blast.
Guitarist/vocalist Samy Elbanna states: "A lot has happened since the release of our second album; we've played loads of sick shows and we've definitely matured as songwriters and as musicians. We're beyond stoked to announce our new album ‘Braindead!’ I'd have to say that this album truly shows what Lost Society is all about, and it's filled with the tightest, heaviest and most aggressive stuff we've EVER done.
"This album has the slowest songs and the fastest songs we've ever done and one thing is for sure: this will make you wanna go crazy! The album title itself is a portrayal of us in many ways, ‘Braindead’ has come to be another way of saying Lost Society, and it came to us as a natural decision to make it the title for what we feel is the best material we have ever made. Ladies and gentlemen, the times of a ‘Braindead’ revolution are upon us!" More...
