Allfader's second full-length album Black Blood Flux is without a doubt these Norwegian's strongest work to date. Their sound remains instantly recognizablewith melodic Death Metal, but with Black Blood Flux the band's traditional heavy metal influences are stronger than ever. In all its heaviness, the album sounds very organic and is completely stripped of synthesizers and clean vocals. The result is a rawer, more aggressive and focused sonic expression.
2012 release, the fifth album from the British Hard Rock band fronted by vocalist Skin. Black Traffic, the band's follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2010 album Wonderlustre, was recorded in London and co-produced by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Pixies) and mixed by Jeremy Wheatley and Adrian Bushby. "We've wanted to be charge of our own destiny for many years, the doom & gloom merchants may whine about the music industry but we've seen it as a positive chance to re-invent how we work and take more control over our art form. With our new album Black Traffic and new label we are really excited with the future of skunk, this is my personal favorite as an album, even better than Wonderlustre which spawned some great songs. We're back and f**k me we're gonna enjoy every last minute of it!" "We got back together because we have a strong chemistry," says Skin of the band's return. "We're very proud of our past work, but what drives us is the future".

By 1971, Pharoah Sanders had taken the free thing as far as he could and still live with himself. He was investigating new ways to use rhythm – always his primary concern – inside his music and more tonally strident ways of involving the front line in extrapolating tonal and harmonic diversions from the melodic framework of his music. To that end, he entered into a more groove-laden arrangement with himself and employed some funkier players to articulate his muse. Along with Cecil McBee and Billy Hart, who were frequent Sanders sidemen, a young Stanley Clarke fills the second bass chair, and Norman Connors fills out the second drum seat.
