NYC’s alternative hard rock/progressive metal band Vajra are a singular entity, a very special experience who deserve to be playing big festivals to thousands . Even in a small club setting the band recall the exotic blend of  Jane’s Addiction or South Africa’s Tribe After Tribe crossed with the eerie Siouxsie Sioux meets East Indian influenced rock vocals of  Annamaria Pinna. Vajra offer a potent brew, melodic and earthy yet in touch with a completely different plane of existence through forward thinking, elaborate grooves and spiritual energy. The band’s rhythm section recall the proficiency of Tool or Krokodil and their guitarist Dave Sussman used to play in Bile!

Currently the band have over 4600 views in just one week since their newest video “3.14 (Water Mix)” has been released and we here at Metal Riot want to help that number climb. Check the video out below.

Fans can vote for the new video on Loudwire’s top metal countdown HERE. Show some support.

“We are trying to make the Top 10 Rock and Metal Vids at Loudwire. People can vote once an hour until Fri 3/4. Our last video for ‘Inside The Flame’ was tenured as the video that was on the countdown for the longest amount of time. Of course, that’s the goal for this one as well, especially since we did this video 100% DIY (we wrote it, directed it, starred in it, shot it, edited it, art directed etc). It is based on something that happened in my past.” – Annamaria Pinna

The musical brainchild of bassist Tas Danazoglou (Satan’s Wrath, ex-Electric Wizard) Mirror‘s collection of cult crypt-kickers and mighty conjurings bears all the hallmarks of an instant classic. A chance meeting with respected producer (Ghost, Cathedral, Paradise Lost) and accomplished drummer Jaime Gomez Arellano led to the pair hitting on a shared vision of a classically aligned outfit that drew inspiration from the epic amplified landscapes of lore and legend whilst avoiding the lure of mere tribute, rather reinventing the sound and fury they loved anew. They were soon joined by Satan’s Wrath axeman Stamos K, and their fate further sealed by the arrival of the mightily operatic tenor of vocalist Jimmy Mavromatis, before the ouroborus was completed with the arrival of Los Angeles-based guitarist Matt Olivo (Repulsion). Together as Mirror they deliver a thunderously resonant salvo of metal magnificence.

Check the band’s excellent new video for “Galleon” HERE.

This April, Mirror will support Repulsion at select dates in the UK. In regards to these special performances, Tas Danazoglou comments: “We are very excited to play two shows supporting Repulsion. We will deliver pure, relentless heavy metal and hopefully many more shows will follow.”

Killswitch release “Cut Me Loose” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 10:37 AM (PST)

killswitch-engage-incarnate-250x250At the end of the day Killswitch Engage are on top because regardless of whoever is at the mic the band simply have better songs than most of their peers. New tune “Cut Me Loose” continues this tradition with some awesome performances and varied sounds from the whole band.

One thing that is cool about Incarnate‘s tracks we have heard so far is that it doesn’t sound like the band tried to make Disarm The Descent or Alive And Just Breathing pt. 2 with Jesse. That would be a mistake as those records are great on their own.

Still, the new stuff fits well within KSE’s very well established vibe.

There is even a beautiful reservoir shot  at the end that looks like where I grew up in Upstate, NY and kind of sets a tone for holding strength when set against the raging near deathcore heavy hardcore clang of the end riff.

The Word Alive release new video for “Sellout”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 10:19 AM (PST)

unnamed-1

A lot of bands over the years from Stray From The Path to GnR to RATM have had videos with civil unrest in them. Even more bands have had performance videos to the point where many acts hate making them. It is a testament to the passion The Word Alive bring to the table that they are able to combine both and make it work, if also reminding how sad it is there is still unrest in the world . Will humans get their shit together someday?

Slayer tease “You Against You” video, start tour Friday

Slayer are back with as much vitriol as Kimbo Slice and Dada 5000 getting ready to kick the shit out of one another. The “You Against You” teaser features airplane wreckage, some gunfire, Paul Bostaph beating the shit out of his kit and a sort of Krokus post-apocalypse vibe, if thrash. I can dig it.

Even old guy Slayer rip the heads off most younger, stupid metal bands. And especially more prog death core butt rocker bands.

I will always stand by that.

Tom Araya had your back but it’s no use, scene kids.

Septa release new, determined video for “Ropes”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, February 1, 2016 at 7:41 AM (PST)

BEHOLD! The first single from the forthcoming yet-to-be-titled third album by the Ukrainian alternative metal band Septa.

You might remember these hard working maniacs from their Walking Dead themed tune, one of the heaviest songs on our Creature Honeymoon compilation last year as well as their records The Lover and Destroyer.

Seriously, if you haven’t gotten into these guys yet, what is your exact problem? It’s one thing if you are a loser like me and content to rot in bed listening to the Allman Brothers with my dog and a growing stack of dirty laundry. But seriously, if you have any motivation to live you need to check out this adrenaline charged and experimental band who are more interesting than most of what is going on in metal’s various corners at present. Cool to see this clip already near 10,000 views.

Septa’s music is a perfect blend of mathcore and alternative rock. The two previous albums were highly praised by the critics and gained a lot of success for the band. Jón Þór Sigurleifsson of UK’s The Monolith wrote about the new song: “Whereas the Halloween song took a few listens to get into Ropes roped me in instantly. Septa’s best song since Destroyer in my opinion. Vocals have really improved, not that they were bad at all at any point but cleans are so on point in this song. Overall I’d say that Septa is really on the right track from my first listen and it seems like a nice cross section of The Lover and Destroyer.”

Space punks Enter Shikari release new video for “REDSHIFT”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, January 12, 2016 at 6:51 PM (PST)

redshiftvid

Stubborn death metal and throwback punk types who hate melody often wonder why I dig Enter Shikari . Well, the punk meets alternative meets freaky ass outer space drum n bass influenced hard rock band are seriously innovative. Like Dead Letter Circus, System of a Down or Nothing More, they are a group who I think just nail it when it comes to writing memorable songs with cool twists and turns. It might not be the heaviest thing in the world you’ve ever heard but life is about a wide range of experiences. Seeing the band live will make your cynical impulses thaw and you will soon find that you are participating in a very uplifting shared experience. This band believes in the power of rock music to matter and they wear that on their sleeves.

Almost twelve months from the release of their fourth UK Top 10 album, The Mindsweep – which went onto win Independent Album Of The Year at the 2015 AIM Awards and scoring highly in many end-of-year polls – plus two months since the release of companion album The Mindsweep: Hospitalised, Enter Shikari drop a completely new track ‘REDSHIFT’.

Produced by the band and Mindsweep producer Dan Weller, and mixed by Tim Bran (London Grammar, La Roux, The Verve), the track is accompanied by a video directed by Mike Tyler (responsible for the bands previous videos ‘Anaesthetist’ and ‘Torn Apart’)

As vocalist Rou Reynolds explains:

“Redshift is a song about bloody good luck! On the grandest of scales! Literally! Our universe is expanding faster and faster and a few trillion years from now, everything will have sped away from us so fast that all we would see when looking out from Earth is empty space. We would deduce that we were totally alone in the universe. A lost sheep. The last and only biscuit in the tin”
