With five of their full length life wreckers back on vinyl for the first time since the original pressings (we suggest you start with the still unconditionally pit worthy Stop At Nothing ), it seemed a good time to give Dying Fetus the band spotlight. The death metal legacy of this group has withstood many tests and only come through stronger. Catch them on tour with Hatebreed in Europe this April if you are both lucky and brave.

Iconic heavy metal band DIAMOND HEAD today confirms June 3 as the North American release date for their new, self-titled album. Recorded at Vigo Studios in Birmingham, the album is the first to feature new vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersen and ends an eight-year silence for the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) legends. Direct pre-orders for the album will launch shortly.
So far I am really digging the hard living charge of “Our Time Is Now” the best.
Prior to 2014, the thought of a new album was bleak. Guitarist and band founder Brian Tatler reveals, “I had no interest in doing another record but after working with Ras on the 2014 European tour that suddenly changed. I wanted to make a record with him. He’s a confident singer and he’s not trying to fill anyone’s shoes.” Recording of the album commenced last July with the band and engineer Adam Beddow at the helm. Tatler notes, “I gave Rasmus some music to listen to last January. He selected songs or riffs that he wanted to work on and we began rehearsing. We whittled things down to fourteen songs by April.”
Eleven songs were selected in the end for the album; all mixed by Dave Nicholls and mastered by John Davis at London’s Metropolis.
The album’s lyrical focus details political and environmental themes. Its opening and closing songs specifically draw attention to the world’s self-destructive path. Tatler comments, “the body of the album explores other subtopics in more depth along with songs dealing with lighter subjects that are not so heavy on the heart.” Vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersen affirms, “we made the album with the band’s fans foremost in mind from start to finish. We wanted to write songs that would have ties to the best parts of all the early albums.”

UK progressive rockers Frost* have announced their upcoming album Falling Satellites.
Falling Satellites will be released via InsideOut Music on May 27. This will be the band’s first album in eight years.
Jem Godfrey, the keyboard player and songwriter of the album had this to say:
“It’s been a long time coming, but we got there in the end. I think this is our strongest album to date and moves the sound forwards whilst still referencing what’s gone before. It’s also great to have finally co-written some songs with John in a Frost* context. The end results were better than either of us could have imagined, we just can’t wait to get out and play it all live now.”
Check out the track list for the album and Frost* tour dates here.
