Today, HM is proud to stream the new album, Unreal, from Italian-based metal band Prospective. The band formed in 2013 as a solo project from drummer Flavio Cacciari and has gained a reputation as one of the heaviest tech-metal bands in the Italian music scene. The album is officially available today.

We spoke with guitarist Luca Zini about the album:

“With this record, we wanted to gather all our ideas into a big journey through catchiness and angry riffs. This album is a result of one year of work; we put love, sweat, and a lot of effort in it. We hope you’ll enjoy the trip.”

The band released their debut full-length album, Beyond, in 2016, after spending their first two years as an instrumental band.

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
