The second installment of our new Harder Rock Review feature focuses on some choice new metal and features albums and EPs from Ad Vitam, AEGEA, Centrilia, Debunker, Fubear, Poynte, and a featured video by Universal Mind Project.
A hard-hitting rock quintet from Atlanta, GA, Poynte released Discreet Enemy in 2015. It is a fine mixture of heavy guitars, syncopated beats, a lyrical connectivity and a strong sense of melody throughout.
Ad Vitam means “Lifelong” in Latin and this metal band hails from the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Stratosfear is the first Full Length for the band which has shared the stage with many important contemporaries.

Hailing from Oporto, Portugal, Debunker is an incorporative thrash metal band with a fast, aggressive and passionate approach along with emotional shifts on their latest EP, The Invisible Disorder.
Released in late 2015, Memento Mori is the second EP from the Scottish band Centrilia. The music here features a quality blend of nineties groove along with modern day hardcore metal.
