The Disconnect is HeartofaCoward‘s fourth full length album and the first to feature frontman KaanTasan. Once again, sound engineers JustinHill (recording) and WillPutney (mixing and mastering) were involved to make it a roaring success. The writing process for The Disconnect has been long and gradual, with initial work beginning in 2017.
Forming the album started with rough instrumental ideas being pieced together – SteveHaycock, guitarist recalled, “The Disconnect was not an easy process to begin with after such an extended hiatus, but once the wheels started rolling it was business as usual. Kaan was really involved with the writing process throughout which gave us a new element to focus on when writing”. KaanTasan, who joined the band in late 2017 agreed, “It was one of the most challenging and rewarding writing processes I’ve ever been involved with. Some tracks just clicked and fell into place, whilst other tracks really pushed us all creatively. It was important for us to get the best out of each other – we really did all go in on this together”. Discussing the more conceptual aspects of the record, ChrisMansbridge, drummer commented, “The Disconnect refers to the feeling of a complete lack of control over your surroundings and the powers that control your life. It’s the feeling of hopelessness, anger and an inability to relate to the world you live in. Its a record we are all extremely proud of and this marks the next chapter of Heart of a Coward.”
Metal rising stars Any Given Day, from the heart of the German Ruhr area, released their brand new studio album Overpower last month to widespread acclaim from fans and media alike. On Overpower, Any Given Day have perfected their unique blend of unruly brutality, compelling melodies, and unbelievable catchiness. Surrounded by the great musicianship of his fellow band mates, one-of-a-kind vocalist Dennis Diehl, handles both growls and clean vocals. Dennis easily puts any American radio rock singer to shame with his distinctive, unique voice and epic vocal lines. Just drop onto any of the tracks on the album and you’ll get pummeling, in-your-face modern metal power and epic arcs of suspense that are the foundation of Overpower– all wrapped up in an always uplifting message to hold on to.
