The Norwegian thrash outfit Tantara are once again ready to bring the genre back to its roots, combining heavy melodies, fast riffs and complex song structures. The band was formed in late 2009 when the four members decided it was time for another great thrash wave. All members, inspired by the heavy and thrash metal scene from the 80's, have given the genre a new, modern edge, while still keeping true to the legacy. Since the release of their debut album "Based On Evil" in 2012, they have shared the stage with bands such as Kreator, Havok, Destruction, Artillery, Gama Bomb and many other great bands. These Scandinavian thrashers known for their aggressive live shows are ready to unleash their sophomore full length album, "Sum Of Forces", to the hungry pits.

The band has commented: "'Sum Of Forces' describes and symbolizes all the combined forces that impacts descisions, opinions, actions and solutions in anyone's life. Whether it is good or bad, we are all slaves of the forces impacting us. Every single persons life is formed by these forces - Environment, family and friends. By grasping this principle, 'Sum Of Forces' strives to teach us that anything is possible as long as the total force is strong enough; We can all achieve anything together or as one."

"Death By Metal", the definitive documentary on DEATH frontman Chuck Schuldiner, will receive its long-awaited DVD release on July 6 via MVD Visual. A trailer for the film is available below.
Featuring exclusive interviews, rare footage and demos, "Death By Metal" is the first film of its kind to tribute Schuldiner's unparalleled role in the evolution of heavy metal. It was written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Felipe Belalcazar.
The documentary takes a thorough look at the history of metal and Schuldiner's life's work as a musician. What was unique about Schuldiner is that he never took himself or the genre too seriously. He bravely pushed the envelope and couldn't care less about what textbook metal was supposed to be like.
Although the documentary mainly focuses on DEATH and Schuldiner, it is also a compact information package about the early stages of death metal and how it evolved into its current shape. International cassette tape swapping, dedication and the will to develop as musicians are the key factors for the existence of this infernally fast-paced dark music.
