My HeadBangers, welcome from Beijing, China, the Melodic Death Metal Band:
DIE FROM SORROW
“In The Eye Of The Storm”
That’s right my HeadBangers, China, and played at Wacken!
“Spinning Counter Clockwise”
HeadBangers, I’m really pleasantly surprised, I really like them, and their Melodic Death Metal.
There’s not a lot of bio on this band but here’s what I found:
Die From Sorrow, a leading melodic death metal band in China. The band was formed in 2003, and achieved a increasing number of fan base throughout the stages of music festivals and live-houses. During the year of 2011, Die From Sorrow earned the champion of heavy metal competition of the well-known Wacken Metal Music Festival in the China region. The band was announced to be the ‘The Best Heavy Metal Band of 2016’ by the famed Midi Music Festival. Die From Sorrow strongly influenced the metalheads in China by the album ‘Lords of the Alien Sea’ and gained high reputation and honor. In 2018 they succeeded to win the title of World Winner among winner bands from 30 countries at the global band competition “Metal Battle” by Wacken Open Air.

My HeadBangers, well what do you think of these guys?? I love finding new metal bands from every corner of this planet and bringing them to the blog. When you listen to them what do you hear?? One thing I always notice, when you hear any metal band, no singing just the instrumental part of it, you know it’s metal, you can feel it. Yes the voices and words are different than what you, or me, or they are used to, but the music is the same. You can feel it rush through you with every beat. There’s nothing better in this world than good metal music, not even chocolate. This band has been around since 2003, so they have put in the work, hell they played at Wacken, you just don’t walk in to that. So my HeadBangers all of us MetalHeads are different in some way, but under the skin, in our blood we are all the same; family, metal family.
That’s it for this week my HeadBangers. Join me next week for another band and another song. Until then don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
