We here at Axis Of Metal are committed to the underground of heavy metal. We pride ourselves on working with emerging and underground artists to help not only garner them more recognition but to help you, the reader, expand your playlist of metallic madness. With that said, Axis of Metal has allied with the melo-death progsters, Okular, for a full FREE album stream of their upcoming 2013 opus, Sexforce.

Oslo, Norway, natives Okular, have returned after their critically acclaimed 2011 effort, Probiotic, and are ready once again to wow critics and newcomers alike with Sexforce. Sexforce is not a deviation of direction; instead it’s a growth and maturation of song writing. Fans of old and newcomers alike will fall under the luscious spell of majestic melody, cunning technicality and forward thinking progressive passage. To give one last piece of insight before you begin your journey through Okular’s sound-scape of decimation, Borknagar’s, Øystein G. Brun, describes Okular “as a “death metal parallel” to his own band.”

If this is all sounding delicious – it gets better. Okular have even tapped Borknagar’s Vintersorg to contribute guest vocals on the track, “The Greatest Offender”.

Sold yet? I bet you are! So stop reading my words, scroll down past the tracklisting and cover art, and begin your walk through Okular’s path of destruction. Then be sure to head over HERE and purchase Sexforce once it`s released on March 4th!

About the Author

I started this project back in September of 2011. It was born out of an obsession for all things riffy and heavy. I figured, I wanted my opinions heard, so why not create my own soapbox? Thus, Axis Of Metal was born.

My beginnings as a metalhead, sprouted from a love of classic rock, and punk. Well, being 11 years old, Offspring and Blink-182 were as hardcore as they came, right? Anyway, after enjoying stuff like Zeppelin, Rush, Cream and pop-punk, I was introduced to grunge music, and that really paved the way for my insatiable taste for music. From there, I became totally obsessed with music. My love of punk evolved into bands like Black Flag, The Casualties (early), and eventually becoming enamored with discharge. As my need for speed and ugliness intensified, I was introduced to Slayer in high-school, and thus ... the metalhead was born.

Cool story, eh? I thought so too. Anyway, Axis Of Metal is created for you, yea you. Without all the support we've received over the past few years this zine would be nothing. So, enjoy, and stick around, will ya?
