SEPTICFLESH are ready to ignite audiences worldwide with the premiere of their gruesome and vehement music video for “Prometheus,” taken from their critically acclaimed 2014 opus “Titan.” The band announced the debut as “the second video clip since our formation (the first being ‘The Eldest Cosmonaut” from the album “A Fallen Temple’). The storyline revolves around the theme of transformation and crossing the thin line between predator and prey. It is something that literally brings food for thought. Provoking, disturbing, resisting, surviving the ordeal…”

Directed and produced by Jon Simvonis (jonsimvonis.net) — who added “It’s been a pleasure working with the almighty SEPTICFLESH, visualizing a massive song from their latest album, an album which works on so many different levels. Bon Appetit!” — “Prometheus” is being served exclusively via Bloody-Disgusting.com as well as streaming directly via YouTube

This upcoming European Skeletonwitch jaunt gets a huge Metal Riot/The Golden Child bloody oatmeal bowl of approval. Serpents Unleashed had “Unending, Ever Living” on it which was just about the most epic song Skeletonwitch have ever released. Goatwhore‘s last record got a 5 star review on this site. I’ve been rocking a lot of Mortals recently as well in my down time when not writing about music. It is a band I’ve returned to for enjoyment and my time is limited, if that tells you anything.

Other great news is Skeletonwitch are expecting. A little baby skeletonwitch with a bone rattle? No they are EXPECTING a new record to be released later this year if all goes well. Guitarist Scott Hedrick commented, “After we return from melting faces in Europe, our entire focus will be on writing a new album. We have a mountain of riffs and ideas that will be carved into epic tunes. Excited to get started!”

Tour dates HERE. I’d totes skip the pond to follow this tour if I could afford it.

Band Spotlight: Wayfarer

Colorado’s Wayfarer craft moody and dark stories via unconventional atmospheric metal with more winding paths than a Tolkien tale. Their Prosthetic debut Children Of The Iron Age is an at times an expressive yet somber meditation and elsewhere an expulsion of screaming nerves beneath vast skies. Like Agalloch or Iceland’s  Sólstafir before them, Wayfarer’s baleful yet contrarily heartening melodic dirges (often reaching over ten minutes per song) are sure to quicken your wanderlust and slaken your thirsty despair over a drout of epic thinking person’s metal. Recommended track: “The Elemental.”

The idea behind Sonic Child was to write a concept album about our love for music. “Just music” is what we are about, not style or fashion. – Nick van Delft

Germany’s Zodiac are one of the best classic sounding hard rock bands going at the moment (in addition to having one of the trippiest cover images of last year for Sonic Child). It was a pleasure to communicate with Nick van Delft from the band for New Noise (USA) and you can check out our introductory chat HERE. Highly recommend these guys.

Prosthetic Icelandic news today in a big way, after the jump.

Ufomammut also are afoot with Ecate splendor. Ensiferum have a new video, regalia and power included.  A Forest Of Stars, most wonderfully, are back in action with a March 3rd release for Beware The Sword You Cannot See.

It’s a good time for heavy metal!

Chomp, chomp, growl.

Heck, I’m gonna see Geezer , Mountain of Wizard and High On Fire in a few daze.

Turn your frowns upside down, but don’t be a day walker.

And now…(in a Kermit the frog announcing the next act on the Muppet Show voice): MUCK from Iceland have a new music video “My City”  and have teamed up with Alternative Press and Prosthetic for the clip!!!!!!!! (I like ’em. They remind me of the Tar stuff on Touch and Go or even that old EVR band Prevent Falls, a bit).

See artwork and the video BELOW.

How hot is that purple Blind vinyl?!!! SO damn hot! Corrosion Of Conformity in any incarnation is fantabulous for letting your freak flag fry but two of the band’s most fuzzed out masterpieces (up for pre-order since August or so) are getting a Prosthetic Records official street date of January 27th, 2015. Fly on!

“It takes courage to confront the weaknesses we share” – Mina Caputo 

Go buy music. I’m doing my year end list early this year instead of butted right up against New Year’s Eve on the pretext that some of you might actually want to purchase albums and support bands as well as share and trade and be hippies. It is great we can share and be exposed to more music these days, which also gives us the choice to choose what succeeds, directly interfacing with our heroes and/or peers in the “scene”.

Black Friday is pure “Mob Rules” insanity at the chain stores, so why don’t you order any of the albums on my list online (or at least stream them)? This year instead of 5 best records I chose one for each of Metal Riot’s sub-genre catagories, though all are basically one form or another of heavy or edgy rock. Best music video is also included.

This year was a stunning series of highs and lows, from triumphs of death metal to huge tours to  Oderus, Wayne Static and Athon leaving us too soon (also R.I.P. Johnny Winter)!

This list is a sample of some of the best albums (or certain songs) that moved me in 2014. Songs about unity needed in this Fergusson-tense environment , songs for self growth or songs that just kicked ass.

No, we don’t have three unlikely bands covering renditions of Slaughter’s “Up All Night” (though that would be interesting). Instead however there are three new videos you should peep below from prog upstarts White Arms Of Athena, legends At The Gates and a lyric vid from Travis from Coheed’s always rather interesting side project Davenport Cabinet.

Check ’em out HERE and start the weekend early.

White Arms of Athena’s “On The Edge” is a trip worth taking

Lately I’ve been blessed with more good music crossing my path than in years. It seems like there is something in the water, a spreading outwards of creative souls who are unafraid to just boldly go for a bigger vision, whether it is the charged warmth of Cynic’s Kindly Bent To Free Us , the studious growth and love in United Progressive Fraternity’s Fall In Love With The World or, in a completely different genre, the work of electronic/DJ/artist MAKJ, a guy who can leap between different entertainer roles with ease while still displaying the talent and vision akin to the posi-spirit of Lotus or even someone crazy (in the best way) like Sun Ra or Kendrick’s love of culture sharing. It’s collage with intellect attached to the fun, knowin’ the roots of each genre (like in the pretty brilliant “Encore” video for the upbeat song with Henry Fong HERE.)

These times call for people who will step up and evolve through limitations in a fast paced communications world, but also for the know how to fish for good outcomes as you sort through the astral plane, complex song arrangements, your beat sample library or whateva your realm of expression may be. Like William Gibson’s Idoru, this is a time of chasing ghost instincts and flashes of inspiration to grasp an ever-advancing mediascape.

WTF does this have to do with White Arms of Athena? Their new song “On The Edge” is another indicator that my gut was right when they set off my cool band radar after first stumbling onto them fairly recently. This group are really chasing that “edge” by pushing their music, melodies and visual aesthetic into new territory (love the kinda Chris Foss reminiscent color scheme of the art). Check out the new track from their Kurt Ballou (Trap Them, Converge) produced Prosthetic Records latest S/T effort, out early December HERE.

It’s a trip worth taking.

With the Dec. 2 release of their self-titled sophomore effort less than two months away, WHITE ARMS OF ATHENA have unveiled the new song “Heavy Sleep,” the first piece of new music from the Texas-based, prog-infused quintet since their 2011 debut Astrodrama via YouTube .This band is super cool and along with Wings Denied, Fallujah, Torrential Downpour (and a few others that come to mind), White Arms are injecting life into the intricate side of extreme things without the songs suffering. Plus, you gotta dig that weird Liquid Television meets David Bowie lookin’ alien art thing.

“Heavy Sleep” is also available for instant download as a single or when you pre-order a digital copy of the album from either iTunes, Amazon MP3 or Bandcamp! Physical pre-orders are also available offering the release on CD or LP (including a digital download card) along with special bundles featuring an 11×17 poster of the intriguingly chromatic cover artwork designed by Luis Garcia (as showcased above) directly from Prosthetic’s webshop (HERE).

Ivar Bjørnson picks Skeletonwitch for Roadburn 2015

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 9:57 AM (PST)

Today, the prestigious Roadburn Festival announced that SKELETONWITCH has been invited to perform at the 2015 edition of the event, which takes place in Tilburg, Holland next April. Pre-sale tickets go on sale Oct. 16.

 “Simply put: if you want blackened thrash (or whatever you want to call it – everybody has their own definition of what these Ohio rednecks are supposed to be defined as) of the absolutely highest order, these are your guys,” proclaimed Enslaved guitarist Ivar Bjørnson, who alongside Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik (Wardruna) has curated the line-up for Roadburn 2015.

Having hand-picked SKELETONWITCH to play, Bjørnson — who toured alongside the group earlier this year — added, “Okay, I’ve gotta admit that once again sharing a backstage area with these wonderful specimens of the human variety is a motivation in itself – but it is of course first and foremost the music that brought about the invite. This is the perfect band to tear down the walls at Roadburn 2015 and seriously shake things up/slap us silly. If ‘Witch’s high-octane metal doesn’t make you headbang like there’s no tomorrow, you’re probably dead.”

Prosthetic Records has plans to help keep the fire lit brightly for Corrosion Of Conformity fans. Two-count ’em-two vinyl reissues of classic jammers from the stoner rock crossover veteran squad. Two seminal albums by metal pioneers Corrosion of Conformity (C.O.C.) — the 1991 landmark “Blind” and its acclaimed 1994 follow-up “Deliverance” — will be reissued on vinyl by Prosthetic Records this fall. While an exact release date has not yet been confirmed, both titles — limited to 1,000 copies each — are currently available for pre-order in the Prosthetic webshop right HERE. New editions of vintage merch designs from the era are now available as well.
