Welcome to Monday and a well and truly overdue Mosh Pit Monday! Our sincerest apologies for no posts for the last two weeks. We’ve been super busy. Me with work, my wife having her kids for two weeks solid (she normally shares 50/50 custody with her ex) and just not having enough hours in the day to get a post out. We got to Tuesday each week before we realised we hadn’t even got around to getting a post out, so we’re really sorry. Hopefully we’ll pick up exactly where we left off and be sharing some wonderful new music with you all.
This week I’d like to introduce you to a fantastic band Burden of Grief out of Germany. Burden of Grief are ‘veterans’ of the death/thrash metal genre and have been around since 1994. To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the guys forming, they realeased an album in 2014 called “Unchained”.
Band members are Mike Huhmann on vocals, Philipp Hanfland on guitars, Johannes Rudolph on guitars, Florian Bauer on bass and Sebastian Robrecht on drums. The band is mainly influenced by bands out of the UK and the USA, being likened to greats such as Iron Maiden but with a harsher, faster approach.
One of the tracks from the 20th anniversary album “Unchained” is Awaken the Nightmare. If you like old school metal that packs a punch, you’ll love Burden of Grief. They’ve definitely stood the test of time. You can follow them on Facebook and Youtube. Check them out.
So, a couple more weeks until Christmas (and someone else’s birthday, yeah mine) so we’ll see you next week for more Mosh Pit Monday. Until then keep moshin’! ,,,/ ,,,/
