Metal Hammer  |  Issue 357  

SPIRITBOX: Out of the blue
Their rise has been nothing less than meteoric. And yet, as a new year beckons, they assure us they’re just getting started.

It opened with the sound of a baby’s heartbeat and closed with a 20-second roar of fury. In between, Sepultura delivered one of metal’s greatest riot-starting calls-to-arms.

SLEEP TOKEN: They are a mystery
Anonymous members, no interviews and sold-out shows: Vessel et al have become a modern metal phenomenon. We followed them on tour to try and find out more.
