Defense Records and Maximed Records are back on these pages after some months of silence! Credit for this goes to Marcin of Mythrone Promotion, that some time ago sent me new interesting albums to review. Obviously, when he send me releases edited in co-operation between those two labels, I must expect only tons and tons of extreme aggression! In fact, this "Luciferův efekt", second album by Stolen Lives, isn't an exception to this right trend. But, before talking about the album, I should like to say a few words about Stolen Lives. This is a quartet from Czech Republic that lovely destroys the ears of the maniacs since 2005, releasing mostly a lot of splits along with other ugly bands like Time of My Life or D.F.C., and whose first album arrived only in 2015. 4 years later, this album had finally a follow-up in the shape, indeed, of  "Luciferův efekt". Were 4 years enough to Stolen Lives to calm them down a little bit? OF COURSE NOT!
