"Naked Hazelbeard" play acoustic rock with a smoky, whiskey-soaked voice. Singer and guitarist Jan Weitzenbürger, otherwise active in the metal band "Killing Age" and the stoner rockers "Conquered Mind", shows his calm, soulful side with this project. He is supported by Martin Blanchard (bass), Jan Keller (guitar) and Katharina Grohmann (cajon, percussions), who provide the perfect contrast to Jan's voice with her wonderfully soft backing vocals. Together the quartet creates a unique blend of rock, blues and grunge inspired by the likes of Zakk Wylde, Johnny Cash and Everlast. A sound that not only makes the hearts of acoustic lovers beat faster. At the end of 2013 the band from Esslingen released their first self-produced EP. After playing their way through German pubs and clubs for two years, their debut album "Between The Lines" followed in early 2016 and now their second album within a year with "No Borders".

“The death/thrash metal band Seeds Of Agony emerged from the melodic death metal band Agony Remains in 2009. Since then, however, the sound has become much rougher. On their first album, after only two demos so far, hints of guitar melodies shimmer through from time to time, but here high tempo and aggression reign supreme. Lots of blast beats, a few tricky breaks that don't destroy the gameplay and pissed off, snotty vocals are the order of the day here. Their music reminds me of The Crown, The Haunted, Legion Of The Damned, Dew-Scented, Carnal Forge, HateSphere or War-Saw, but older influences from Death, Morbid Angel or old Hypocrisy cannot be denied. The sheer anger could not have been better staged. The precise interplay is frighteningly tight and the music is always authentic. The fat but transparent production breathes extra life into the music. Although the production is up-to-date, there are no trigger sounds and a sterile, lifeless production. This is just the right mix of Death and Thrash Metal, traditional but not stale or fake. The pompous painting that adorns the cover is also perfect and appropriate. Very cool!” (Crossfire Metal)
