Greystone Canyon premiere “Take Us All” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at 3:47 PM (PST)

Australia’s Greystone Canyon have premiered the music video for their song “Take Us All” off of their debut album While The Wheels Still Turn out now via Rockshots Records.

The band says of the song, “The end of mankind is here in the form of “Take Us All.” This song is super catchy with its dark melodies and roller coaster dynamics. It’s got a big vocal hook along epic dual guitar solos.”

The album was tracked at Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia, and then mixed in Canada by producer Glen Robinson (Annihilator, Queensryche and Voivod).

As vocalist/guitarist Darren Cherry says of While The Wheels Still Turn, “We really wanted to make an album similar to old Ozzy Osbourne record where songs like ‘I Don’t Know’ and ‘Goodbye To Romance’ can sit comfortably. This is music from the heart and soul!”

Check out the video for “Take Us All” as well as the cover art and tracklist for While The Wheels Still Turn here.

Misery Index release “New Salem” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at 12:48 PM (PST)

Baltimore death metallers Misery Index have released the music video for their newest song “New Salem.”

The song precedes the band’s upcoming album Rituals of Power due out on March 8 via Season of Mist.

“New Salem” seems to echo an idea of there being “very bad people” on both sides: “In a pacified endemic state, it’s another echo-chamber slave // Addicted to extremes of ideologies // Where left and right amalgamate and hang us from their tallest trees.”

If the people are in a “pacified endemic state,” then how is it also that they are hanging people from “their tallest trees”?

Is “New Salem” an anthem for a new violent centrist?

The band says of the track:

“‘New Salem’ sums up perfectly the lyrical vitriol and musical dynamics featured across Rituals Of Power. We wanted to introduce the album, not just with a straight-ahead ripping tune, but with a smack to the face; it’s a wakeup call for any concerned citizen and a code red for civilization. Ugly times call for stark and uncomfortable statements, and ‘New Salem’ castigates the faults and ineptitudes of our broken media system and the Crucible-esque, witch-hunt culture it fuels.”

Of Rituals of Power the band says:

Rituals Of Power is a disavowal and warning against the consequences of our so-called ‘post-truth’ age. Each of the nine songs revolves loosely around this theme, yet each track also stands very much on its own. As an album however, they are all brought to life as one ‘reanimated’ monster; it’s roughly thirty-five minutes of unhinged, yet cohesive, riff-driven aural ballistics. We were pissed off and on fire during both the writing and recording, and we think it shows in spades. We set out to write the best album we could, based on what we would want to hear first as fans of this music, and we could not be happier.”

All Else Fails release “A Dream of Names” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 3:40 PM (PST)

Canadian metallers All Else Fails have released a music video for their song “A Dream of Names” ahead of the release of their newest album The False Sanctuary.

“In a lot of ways this album is at a state of the union address. It’s been 2 years since the release of The Forever Lie, and already the themes of financial corruption, abuse of religious power, and political scandal seem tame. I wrote this one half with a sarcastic smirk, half with an crippling sense that we are well past the point of return.” says vocalist/guitarist Barrett Klesko.

Vatican signs to 1126 Records

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, December 10, 2018 at 4:19 PM (PST)

Savannah, Georgia metallers Vatican have signed to 1126 Records, where they’re expecting to put out their debut album spring 2019.

Ahead of that release the band have released the music video for their song “Thirty-One Staples.”

“”Thirty-One Staples’ is about revisiting my childhood home through a lucid dream,” said singer Jonathan Whittle. “Observing my past and witnessing an event which put me in the hospital for two months with 31 staples to the head and having to relearn all motor skills. I came out stronger thanks to the discipline I gained from having built myself back and learning from that experience. Ultimately, it’s about diving back into your mind where the worst moments of your life happened: remembering who you are, what you’ve gone through, and that pain is truly temporary.”

The band will begin recording their new album at Silver Bullet Studios in Burlington, Connecticut with Greg Thomas (END, Misery Signals, Shai Hulud).

Vatican will also be hitting the road with The Acacia Strain later this month.

Check out the video for “Thirty-One Staples” and Vatican tour dates here.

King Diamond is releasing an epic DVD set featuring Graspop and Fillmore full sets of Abigail. This release looks seriously sick. As a die hard King fan I am beyond elated today and singing in falsetto and pissing off my dramatic cat.

“Songs For The Dead Live gives those who missed out on seeing these shows in the flesh a chance to vividly experience them, offering so much deeper an experience than your run of the mill live DVD.”

Soen streaming “Martyrs” video at Metal Injection

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 12:02 PM (PST)

Swedish progressive metallers Soen are streaming the music video for their song “Martyrs” over at Metal Injection.

The music video starts with the lead singer dressing in drag and meeting the rest of the band out on the town. They are also dressed in drag.

Vocalist Joel Ekelöf had this to say about the video:

“The video and the song reflects the importance to stand up for yourself and not be trapped in other peoples’ expectations of you. People are going to try to push you down and they want you to conform to the prevailing ideals, but as long as you follow your own path, you are never wrong.”

This message is matched with the band disrobing from their drag at the end of the video.

Produced by David Castillo and Iñaki Marconi at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6, Lotus features the first recorded Soen material with newest recruit, Canadian-born guitarist Cody Ford.

Check out the music video for “Martyrs” and Soen European tour dates here.

One of my favorite gosh darn honest REAL rock n roll bands, The Compulsions have been kicking out blues influenced, skinned knuckles fiery albums for awhile now. With an emphasis on songwriting you don’t see enough of anymore hog-tied to a sense of sly humor, the NYC brainchild of Rob Carlyle continues to astound. I HATE when people say rock is dead when we should be blaming the dumb fucks who decided to kill rock radio and push crap instead. Of course people are gonna be more into what they hear every god damn day! How about we remind people of the power of guitar and real dedication?

The Compulsions narrowed thirty songs down to the ten that will be featured on Ferocious. Bumblefoot, Frank Ferrer and other big scene talents like Nicki Richards and Earl Slick have all played a part in recent Compulsions doings, so be sure to check out the finished project when it drops! We will keep you posted.

Deathcore action heroes Signs Of The Swarm are hungry, and I don’t just mean that they look like they could use a big helping of lasagna each. The group have been working hard to leave an impression and slam an impact crater into the surface of the scene. I always think about how fired up Korn was when they toured with Danzig years ago and wonder what new bands will come out blazing with similar desire to make crowds go crazy nowadays. Well, Signs Of The Swarm aint slouchin’ live, that’s for sure!

Now the group have released pro shot live footage from their stint on this year’s Devastation on the Nation Tour, which saw them performing alongside Aborted, Psycroptic, Ingested, Disentomb, Arkaik, and Venom Prison. The set was filmed by Matti Way (From The North Films) at the tour’s stop in Mesa, Az date.

Watch the video HERE

Physical order bundles for SIGNS OF THE SWARM‘s Unique Leader debut The Disfigurement of Existence are available HERE.
Digital bundles are available HERE.

Good luck to this band. Let’s support new acts and help metal’s future stay strong.

Metal trio, Spiritbox have released a music video for their new single titled, “Electric Cross“. The new single follows up on the group’s recent single, “Perennial”, which dropped last month.

Vocalist, Courtney LaPlante gave her thoughts on the new single, “This song makes me so uncomfortable because it’s about everything I do not want to acknowledge. Feeling like I have no autonomy over my own body. How much anger I have towards those who have wronged me, and the environment that allows bad things to happen. Knowing that something that feels so isolating is such a universal feeling.”

Having toured the world as members of the eccentric metal band iwrestledabearonce, vocalist Courtney LaPlante and guitarist Michael Stringer wanted to take their intensely personal and technical musical focus in a new creative and personal direction. Spiritbox was the result.

In 2017, the husband and wife duo sent their unreleased debut Self-Titled EP to Bill Crook of the Vancouver pop-punk band Living with Lions hoping only for constructive criticism. Instead, they found themselves with a new bandmate and best friend. Together, this Canadian trio has set out to bring a new and refreshing perspective to metal.

Tourniquet release “Sinister Scherzo” lyric video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 12:20 PM (PST)

This new Tourniquet song has some pretty wild production and a thrashtastic arrangement. It is from the new album Gazing At Medusa. Have you gazed at Medusa today? I guess if you did you would not be able to respond because you would’ve rightfully been turned into a statue. Oh man, my cat just farted. Jesus. Anyway, that cover art makes me want to smoke and watch those bad Clash of the Titans remakes. The old school Medusa was way cooler (compare HERE).

Drummer and songwriter Ted Kirkpatrick comments: “We’re thrilled with the response to the first two singles. This album took considerably longer to record than expected, but we feel the fans will find it to be worth the wait. It’s been great to work with Tim and Chris on this one.”

The album is mixed and mastered by Aaron Pace. T-shirts are available, and pre-orders are up for both CD and vinyl at tourniquet.net
