North Carolina progressive metallers Between The Buried And Me have come into 2018 with a slew of exciting news!

The band has announced a two-part concept album entitled Automata and part one is expected to be released on March 9 via Sumerian Records.

They will embark on a North American headlining tour with The Dear Hunter and Leprous on March 2.

Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. (Lead Vocals, Keyboards) states: “Every single week music comes and goes. We can get music instantly and with this luxury, the listener has a hard time sitting down with albums and exploring their every twist and turn. Because of this, we have decided to release our new album in two parts. Our music is dense and our albums are very long, so we want to give people two separate moments to dive in this year and explore new music that we’ve put our entire being into. We hope you enjoy the creation as much as we’ve enjoyed the process.”

Ash Avildsen (Sumerian Founder) states: “I first toured with BTBAM in early 2000s when they were on Lifeforce. Since then we remained friends and I have watched their career grow nonstop through eras on Victory and Metal Blade. I am very grateful such a seminal, influential and progressive group of musicians have chosen to partner with Sumerian for their next chapter. It’s days like this that remind me of my roots and excite me about our future.”

Anvil prepare to release ‘Pounding The Pavement’

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, January 8, 2018 at 5:01 PM (PST)

Canadian heavy metallers Anvil are preparing to release their 17th studio album Pounding The Pavement on January 19 via SPV/Steamhammer.

Anvil will be heading out on tour through Europe in support of the album starting in February.

Pounding The Pavement was produced at the Soundlodge studios in Rhauderfehn in the northwest of Germany, where Anvil found not only the necessary peace and seclusion to concentrate on their recordings, but also met in studio owner Jörg Uken the ideal producer for their ambitioned work. Talking of which: the programmatic album title Pounding The Pavement is a synonym for the consistently serious challenge of ensuring Anvil’s financial survival. Steve Kudlow (guitars/vocals): “I feel nothing could describe the way we’ve been working for the past forty years better than Pounding The Pavement: Anvil have tried for four decades to earn enough money to survive and continue to make music.”

In view of their impressive new album which brims over with inspiration, Anvil can look into the future with optimism, knowing that they have succeeded – as expressed in their song ´Doing What I Want` – in not having to pander to anyone’s taste artistically: “Despite all adversities that the life of a musician entails, we still find ourselves in a very privileged position. We can basically do what we want to do. Nobody interferes, nobody tries to steer us in one direction or the other. Which other artists can say that of themselves? Even the biggest bands in the world envy us and tell us: ‘You damn bastards have always been able to do what you want.’ And that’s precisely what we’ve done again on Pounding The Pavement.”

Unearth ‘The Oncoming Storm’ Vinyl Re-Issue news

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 3:15 PM (PST)

Pre Orders are now available HERE for a re-issue of Unearth‘s breakout album The Oncoming Storm. The record helped make the band one of the guiding lights of Metalcore in the early 00’s and built on the promise of earlier material soundly. Perhaps the band’s most ‘classic’ early release with fans, Unearth really hit an early career stride with this release by slightly refining their twin guitar attack into a more road tested and deadly professional sound. Nonetheless, it still remains heavy as hell and the band have never broken that pact with fans.

The Oncoming Storm LP re-issue
–180g Black Vinyl
–orange-brown marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – ltd. 300)
–“flame” splattered vinyl (EU exclusive – ltd. 200)
–pumpkin orange marbled vinyl (US exclusive – ltd. 300)
–root beer marbled vinyl (US exclusive – ltd. 300)
–gold / black split vinyl (US exclusive – ltd. 700)

Surmiser and Walking Bombs release “Sexy Beasts” 2 song split

Posted by Metal Riot on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6:46 PM (PST)

Upstate, NY projects Surmiser and Walking Bombs have released a new 2 song split exclusively via Bandcamp RIGHT HERE.

The Surmiser track finds the space grunge band re-interpreting the first song they ever wrote “What End?” into a slightly more driving and post-punk attack that still has a sort of heavy distortion that will please fans of Melvins’ epic cover of The Wiper’s “Youth Of America” while perhaps also appealing to the Publicist UK crowd with droll yet potent vocals.

Walking Bombs jumps genres with practically every song (their last song was an extreme grindcore tune), but this new one is a very psych pop influenced non-metal song called “Queen E”. It barely passes two minutes but has many textures in that time until the ‘peak’ at the ending. This one is more for the kind of grunge fan who also leaned towards The Breeders and Kurt’s Beatles influence rather than the more Nevermind-fitting Surmiser track. Check them out!

Swedish progressive folk rockers Agusa are streaming their latest song “Bortom Hemom” via Obelisk.

The song comes off the forthcoming self-titled album, which is due out in late October via Laser’s Edge.

Agusa’s Mikael Ödesjö said of the song:

“‘Bortom Hemom’ translates roughly as ‘Beyond Homeward’ and consists of two sections joined together by a bridge. The first part is in 7/4 and the second in 3/4. Perhaps our most ‘progressive’ effort this far. Enjoy!”

Head on over to Obelisk to stream “Bortom Hemom.”
