The Sanity Days are a band from the united Kingdom that consists of many veterans and plays a dark mixture of heavy and power metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Evil Beyond Belief" which will be released in March by Candlelight Records.

Spoken word parts and clean playing which is also used on a regular basis throughout the recording start off the album along with some melodic guitar leads and after the intro the music keeps its melody and adds in more of a heavy sound along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful along with some power metal style vocals and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.

A good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also hear some synths in certain sections of the recording along with a small amount of evil whispers and the heavier and harder sections of the songs bring in an 80's style of metal that is very old school while the production gives the songs more of an up to date feeling and some of the slower riffing have a doom metal vibe to them and they also bring in power ballads at times while the main focus remains more on a dark and heavy music style.

The Sanity Days take the darker forms of heavy and power metal and add in a touch of doom metal to create an album that is very heavy, melodic, old school yet has an evil atmosphere, the production has a very professional sound while the lyrics cover dark, satanic and occult themes.

In my opinion The Sanity Days are a very great sounding dark mixture of heavy and power metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satan's Blood" "Evil Beyond Relief" "My Demon Mind" and "Firestorm". 8 out of 10.

Onslaught have split with stand-in singer Neil Turbin with two shows remaining on their US tour – and the parties have issues statements criticising each other’s position.

Guitarist Nige Rockett says the former Anthrax man was fired earlier this week after failing to learn the British band’s set. But Turbin, who was brought in because Sy Keeler had to deal with personal issues, insists he quit after he wasn’t paid what had been agreed.

Rockett told Heavy Metal Television earlier this week: “We fired him. Things never really started off well with Neil. He had a reasonable amount of time to learn the songs – he turned up at the first show with a prompter, and that prompter was still there yesterday.”

Turbin responded via Facebook: “The contract was signed a month before the tour, and that's the amount of time I had to learn an entire set of complex lyrics and vocals. There was no time on the road. It was shared with Nige that the only way I could sing the proper lyrics would be with some help, since we never rehearsed once.”

He said that a pre-show argument in Montreal led to a meeting with Rockett, where Turbin asked for money he was owed. “Nige told me he needed to get paid $2000. I spoke with Nate Klug, tour manager, who said that all the money was going to the van and Nige was supposed to pay me.

“When Nige didn't on Monday night, I told the band: C-ya. Therefore his interview providing false information about what happened is just damage control. Nige had no intention of good faith and no intention of paying me.”

Rockett responded in his own post: “Neil, I suggest you remove your totally slanderous post with immediate effect or you will be hearing from our lawyers forthwith. Onslaught will make a very detailed statement regarding your departure in due course.”

He later added: “Mr Turbin was paid in full each week as per contract. We have evidence to confirm each of these payments. In fact, Turbin was paid over 300% in excess of what any other band member was paid per week. Neil was not ripped off. Neil was not done wrong. Neil got paid. Ask him to deny what I say.”

The singer received vocal support from former Onslaught drummer Steve Grice, who linked to his Facebook comment and said: “I had to put up with years of this type of shit. I say to those people who doubted me, and who in fact challenged me: Read this and weep!”
