Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 4:22 PM (PST)


North Carolina deathcore metalheads Krosis have released their latest song “Feed” featuring Lucas Mann of Rings of Saturn.

“The quality of musicianship in this song is impressive and rare,” said Mann about his experience working with Krosis. “It allowed me to experiment with a lot of my more melodic playing that I am not able to showcase too often in my own band. It was fun working with these guys.”

“We are all very grateful to Lucas for working with us and really making this whole writing process such a unique experience for us as musicians,” says the band’s drummer, Daniel Cece. “We were elated to have him agree to sign on and even more so when he spoke highly of what he heard. The goal of ‘Feed’ was to put out the best for our fans, who deserve the best.”

Pre-orders for Five, in various formats and exclusive bundle packages, are available now at The Napalm Records Webstore:

“We are so anxious to release this record to our fans and the world! This album represents another shift in the evolution of THE AGONIST! Vicky and I went even deeper into what makes a song really connect. I’m very proud of everyone’s hard work making this the most diverse and interesting record for us to date! It was a great learning experience working with Mike Plotnikoff and fully immersing ourselves in the recording process 24/7. Just as much as we are excited to release this album we are psyched to get back out on the road and connect directly with our fans! Europe gets the first taste before we unleash on North America this November with Epica.”, says guitarist Danny Marino.

Vocalist Vicky Psarkis adds, “Being in THE AGONIST for over 2 years now and after releasing my debut album with the band and numerous tours, I can say that Five is the record where I believe that we finally found our sound! There’s a certain confidence that comes with experience and there’s something about being fully comfortable that can take your approach towards songwriting to a whole other level. Working on the lyrics and vocals on this album was an incredibly natural process. Halfway into the pre-production, we realized that a lot of our songs seemed to be telling a story and hearing the album in its entirety is like escaping into our world.”

Sumerian Records Presents: 10 Years In The Black Tour

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 at 4:42 PM (PST)

10 Years In The Black

Sumerian Records has announced a fall package tour featuring some of their biggest names.

The tour will be headlined by none other than Asking Alexandria, who will see support from Born of Osiris, I See Stars, After The Burial, Upon a Burning Body and Bad Omens.

Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce commented on the tour:

“I can’t remember the last time I was this excited for a tour. Not only is this our first true North American headlining tour in two years, as well as our first real U.S. headliner with Denis [Stoff] as our vocalist, but this is also a tour celebrating the incredible 10 year journey of Sumerian Records. We couldn’t be more proud to headline such a pivotal tour package and to celebrate the music Sumerian has released. The tour will include our biggest production to date and the first trek out in support of our new album, The Black. This is going to be something incredibly special.”

 Sumerian Records Founder Ash Avildsen commented on the tour:

“To see the celebration of a decade of Sumerian culminate with this tour is a true reflection of the communal spirit and vision that this label was built upon. Fans will get to see five headliners all go out together, which is very rare these days because of tour politics, egos, money and everything else that gets in the way of giving music lovers an unforgettable line-up. The fact that these five bands are sharing the stage together and still bringing an opening act to kick off the show makes this a truly special tour. I comment them all. Stay tuned for for lots of upcoming announcements about different activities for bands and fans to interact at at these shows that go beyond just watching them perform on stage. Mark my words: This will be the most progressive and interactive tour we have ever done. See you on the road.”

Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin is one hard rock package certain to draw, not the easiest feat in 2016. The bands connect to their fans release after release despite not everyone being into their styles, but music rock music has room for different genres and hard rock has a place…a big one.

Catharina Christiana set out to support the tour for us and got some electrified shots of the raging crowd and vengeful ones. Thanks to Disturbed’s PR for the last minute credentials. Cheers

True Widow announce new album information

Posted by Metal Riot on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at 11:45 AM (PST)


Dallas trio TRUE WIDOW have announced their fourth album Avvolgere, due out this Sept. 23 on CD/2xLP/DLX 2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. The forthcoming LP perfects the formula that 2013′s Circumambulation established: Avvolgere rocks and rolls with serene, rounded climaxes and steep, jangling choruses that engulf the listener with waves of downbeat, saccharine melodies and mesmerizing distortion. TRUE WIDOW’s signature alternation between male and female vocals helps further blur the boundaries between the heft of stoner rock, the droning atmosphere of shoegaze, and the twangy catchiness of blues and indie rock. It’s both concise and circuitous – the album takes you on a journey that you can’t ever quite predict or expect. Avvolgere is TRUE WIDOW sounding more infectious and consummate than ever before.

The first single from the album, “Entheogen,” is streaming now at this location and is available as an instant download with digital pre-orders. Physical pre-orders are also available at the same link.

The band recorded Avvolgere with Matt Pence, who recorded their 2013 release,Circumambulation, at his Echo Lab studio in Argyle, Tex. earlier this year. “Over the course of three albums,” the Wall Street Journal said in an article on the DFW-outfit, “the Dallas-based band has refined a sound rooted in focused repetition, bass-heavy guitar drones, ethereal vocals, and almost always, crawling temples.”
