Beyond The Styx - Sentence - Reviewed By My Revelations ! Check it out here at this link: https://www.myrevelations.de/2022/02/05/beyond-the-styx-sentence/
BEYOND THE STYX come from France and "Sentence" is the third complete album of the quintet. The band joins the list of bands that brew a mixture of hardcore, crossover and thrash metal without blinkers and beats them out in the rehearsal room with a lot of anger in their stomachs. And that's exactly how you can imagine the half hour on "Sentence": sawing riffs, a driving rhythm fraction of bass and drums that rarely picks up the tempo, and on top of that a hoarse, very angry scream from frontman Emile. However, the very often interspersed beatdowns lose their power and power over the runtime, they simply come too predictable. And in contrast to heavyweights like NASTY or MALEVOLENCE, the French still lack sensitivity and perfect adjustment of these elements in their songs from time to time.
Nevertheless, "Sentence" is a strong album, a song like "Chain Of Life" shows very clearly what BEYOND THE STYX are capable of.
The sound is very powerful and absolutely suitable for this type of music.
Even if BEYOND THE STYX will not receive an innovation award for their new album, the record can not only entertain but also convince interested parties. "Sentence" is a hate batter that is suitable for smashing the living room. If it is your own, you can of course also reschedule and do great sports. Live this will definitely be useful, because the pit at BEYOND THE STYX should be murderous with this material. - My Revelations

Riding across Europe since 2011, BTSTYX is inspired by a dark and violent musical universe. At the crossroads between Hardcore, Metal & Thrash Crossover , the French quintet has unleashed the crowds on more than 180 gigs, alongside renowned bands such as: Terror, First blood, Nasty, Malevolence, Cold Hard Truth, Broken Teeth, Alea Jacta Est ... Following the release of his new studio effort: “ SENTENCE ” (recorded & produced by Christian Donaldson: Despised Icon, Get the Shot , Cryptopsy …), BTSTYX expresses a manifest, authentic, incisive desire to open minds to the evils that have been gnawing away for too long a most decadent modern society. “Is our history an eternal beginning?" That’s the challenge of Beyond the Styx: Embody the flapping of a butterfly wing. As weak as it may be... Being part of the storm of change!
Hit the road without counting the distance that separates the gig of tonight to the next, support each local scene so that Hardcore music exists today and tomorrow, rally the people to defend respect for difference, invite everyone to think about the drift of the values of our contemporary society so that our reality of today does not become our new Hell of tomorrow. Armed with a hardened line-up, BTSTYX drives the point by highlighting with « SENTENCE » the maddest torrent of live energy!
Sentence will be released Friday 4th February on WTF records:
