Meteora, the “Symphonic metal band” from Hungary, has been hard at work writing and recording their second album ‘Tragedy of Delusion.’ With a grandiose sound rivalling that of related artists such as Nightwish and Epica, they have not only created a ten track album of original, heavy rock songs but have treated us with a cover of the influential alternative rock band Linkin Park’s ‘Numb.’ Having time left over from recording, the band decided to go with an idea they had for a while; including a cover. With much deliberation between band members and their fans, Meteora decided to go with the dark yet powerful ‘Numb.’
Five unsigned music artists for you to look out for.
‘Everything Else has Gone Wrong’ is a strong relaunch. It is perfect for the age we live in, unsure of what the future holds or even what the present is grasping.

Halsey’s new album Manic recently came out and wow it’s an amazing rollercoaster ride; every song has a bit of a different genre and change of theme. I think this is really creative and it means that there is something for everyone. There are also a lot of different voices that we get to hear on the tracks, from Alanis Morrissette, famous for Ironic to SUGA a rapper from BTS. Each interlude not only shows the talents of Halsey but also the talents of the co-creators.
