The Grand Masters of German Sludge Death Metal return to release a new album by 2020! Wait a minute - they return? That's not quite true, because Disbelief have never really been away! Active since 1990, the band aroundm scene idol Jagger, released their latest album "The Symbol of Death" in 2017. Well, how should one describe the music of the 5-piece? The band does not play standard Death Metal, but they can not really put themselves between other Sludge bands - some would say that they actually go their very own way. Stomping, angry, rolling and usually rattling in mid-tempo, the songs crunch down into the listener's ears. Absolute recommendation for friends of the indigestible diet!

Who likes to drink beer and comes to Way of Darkness 2020? You?! Fantastic! Who else? Tankard for example! The thrashing German boozers are ready for to range since 1983! As part of the Big Teutonic 4, the band is one of the cornerstones of Thrash Metal from Germany and never gets tired of the tribute of sparkling "barley juice". In this sense: Die with a beer in your hand!
