Of Mice & Men regrets to announce that the remaining dates of the ‘Full Circle Tour’ will be cancelled. Therefore, tonight’s show at Soma in San Diego and Tuesday’s show at El Plaza Condesa in Mexico City will no longer go ahead. Lead singer Austin Carlile was admitted to a hospital yesterday morning and per doctor’s orders has been kept in overnight for evaluation. The band regrets not being able to perform for their fans and hopes to be back in both cities as soon as possible. Refunds for both shows will be available at point of purchase, however Of Mice & Men are planning to reschedule both shows for a later date in the year. We will have more news on this in the the coming weeks and tickets holders are welcome to retain their tickets, as they will remain valid for these rescheduled dates.”

Speedy recovery, hombre.

For as long as I can remember, All Out War have been the band who can shut up any conversation about crossover “not working”, get a metalhead or hardcore kid to think differently in the face of the undeniable onslaught or remind even the most violent prone, anger processing pit cowboy that the songs they brawl to should still be about something. NYC Bowery Electric release show ought to be nuts.

Mike Score, one of my all time favorite people in the scene, checks in to deliver the knowledge on the much anticipated return DYING GODS. Here’s where to order Dying Gods from All Out War:

Rise Of Doom are a rock solid new metalcore band from France who are better than about 80% of the pack, which means they certainly deserve to be on the radar of all metalcore fans. The band show a lot of promise on the very heavy yet colorful and effective self-released Purgation. Check out our interview with some of the guys BELOW.

The Dillinger Escape Plan release “Paranoia Shields” clip

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 6:32 PM (PST)

Dillinger-Escape-Plan-One-Of-Us-Is-The-Killer

I liked Option Paralysis a bit better than One Of Us Is The Killer, though the recent album from The Dillinger Escape Plan was also rad and every video has been downright, uh, killer?! The band are one of my all time faves but I haven’t felt startled by their material since the really innovative (and underrated)  Ire Works. BUT, the new stuff since that record has still been great if kind of establishing a kind of new standard DEP sound, more or less. Their videos, however, continue to startle.

Mitch Massie worked on this new video with the esteemed band of spastic yet poppy Faith No More disciples. Ruling the math core scene still to this day, you’ve got to respect Dillinger and this video is another fine entry in a storied legacy.

I was never into The Devil Wears Prada early in their career. I couldn’t get past the hokey or long song titles that weren’t as interesting as Shai Hulud or Gigan song names. I have to say that since becoming a fan of easy-core new school classic Homesick by A Day To Remember which featured some Prada guest vox and then meeting them a few years back at Mayhem Fest and finding out they were chill dudes, I changed my tune. It helped though that ever since Prada signed with Roadrunner they’ve become more mature and just a better band in almost every way. Actually, Dead Throne was the bomb too. Plus, they really do slam live. I’ve been a fan of pretty much every song they’ve released since and the new one is no exception. Bump this! Awesome tune for early summer’s arrival.

Check out “South Of The City” BELOW.

On The American Dream Died, Agnostic Front vocalist Roger Miret -even so many years into the classic NYHC band’s tenure- has delivered maybe his most vocally succinct set of lyrics on an album ever. The focus of the energized social blast’s recalls the band’s early lightning rod heyday as well as more recent forays into melodic, working class punk. And fret not…crossover fans need only listen to the rampage of “Test Of Time” to hear the metal influence that landed the band props from Kirk Hammett of Metallica on his Fear Festival this year.

It was great to talk to Miret about the record, on current events like “Police Violence”, real patriotism, welfare, Edward Snowden and how NY is the “Greatest city in the world, but it just don’t feel the same”. Plus MUCH more. “There’s no justice/it’s just us”!

TGIGF: Listen to a lot of All Out War today for Jesus

In celebration of not so Good Friday we’re posting All Out War‘s For Those Who Were Crucified for no good reason other than it rules (and I mean, those Slayer riffs with the early metalcore…still so fuckin heavy)!

Did I mention the Long-running New York-based hardcore/metal stalwarts will also release Dying Gods this year? Yes, my homie Mike Score continues to lead the assault the band started in 1991 on the ears of the sheeple. Pure crossover of the illest kind, metallic and angry as hell but educated in history.

From the press release:

Now nearing the band’s two-and-a-half decade mark, ALL OUT WAR proves that age has only refined the band’s killing capabilities on Dying Gods, a brand new EP which the band is about to unleash upon humanity early this Summer. Dying Gods sees the band return to the sound of For Those Who Were Crucified, and just like that timelessly brutal album, Dying Gods was engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (Hatebreed, Turmoil, Buried Alive, Suicide Silence) at West West Side Studios in New Windsor, New York. The record sees the band bringing five decimating new original tracks and covers of two iconic underground anthems.

Tour dates and music to get pumped to below.

Poughkeepsie, NY shook as Suicide Silence and Emmure packed the house and cracked concrete for the Stronger Than Faith Tour. The rowdy show featured adrenalized performances met with major enthusiasm from the mixed age crowd (though full of young fans primarily). Frankie from Emmure was still suffering throat problems and sat this one out, seeming really bummed as he told the near capacity crowd he couldn’t sing their set. I thought it was the guy who fronts Emmure’s NYC buddies Sylar who filled in at first but was told a bit later it was the controversial bands tour manager stepping in. The crowd supported wholeheartedly and people were flipping out and singing along nonetheless.

I honestly heard several people say it was the best show they’d ever gone to there. While it was a good show it didn’t come near the balcony kamikaze jumper insanity of Soulfly/Incubus over a decade ago or some of the nutsballz Gwar, Hatebreed or All Out War shows I’ve seen there over the many years I’ve been attending concerts at the theater.

But yeah, it was a fired up night for metalcore fans. Openers Fit For An Autopsy had the heaviest set besides Suicide Silence (who seriously brought in this first time I got to witness them live since Mitch died). FFAA were clearly hungry and delivered a death heavy performance with particularly satisfying bass fluidity from Shane Slade.

I was most excited probably to see Within The Ruins who have one of the best guitarists in metal. They recently survived a snowy van crash and Tim Goergen still had his arm in a sling when off stage. The Westfield, MA band didn’t dissapoint though, bringing Dillinger-worthy technical madness to the masses.

Suicide Silence’s Eddie Hermida really owned the night, though. Hermida told a heckler that “if you want to see All Shall Perish go to an All Shall Perish show”, his new band bearing down with crushing forward momentum as the pit swelled.

In anticipation of Earth Crisis‘ next record THE DISCIPLINE out this year via the good folks at Bullet Tooth , a few of their friends and biggest fans got together to speak about what the band and music means to them. 20 years after their debut album Destroy The Machines was released, Davey Havok (AFI), Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), Igor Cavalera (Sepultura), Toby Morse (H2O), Dan Smith (LA Ink), Paul Waggoner (Between The Buried And Me), Peter Young (ALF), and Joel Capolongo (Sea Shepard) discuss those songs, the messages, and the impact Earth Crisis has had on their lives and the straight edge and animal rights movements worldwide. Watch it BELOW.

This is a great reminder of how music can still have important social impact.

The Devil Wears Prada’s Chris Rubey leaves the band

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 1:56 PM (PST)

The-Devil-Wears-Prada-2013

The Devil Wears Prada have announced a new contract with Rise Records but have lost a founding member:

“At the end of October, upon completing our run of shows in Mexico, Chris decided that it was time to stay home and be with his wife and daughter. While losing a founding member might seem to be a bumpy transition to announce, we find ourselves terrifically proud and enthused to continue moving forward with touring and writing new material. The upcoming Space EP is a testament to what we’re capable of and the always truthful fact that TDWP is a collective collaboration rather than any single member or component. We’re happy to say that parting ways with Chris couldn’t have been more amicable: we understand and wish him the very best at being with his family.

“In the meantime, our good friend Kyle is playing with us: a fine gentleman and an excellent guitarist who helped out tremendously in the making of Space EP. The Zombie 5 Tour is off to a fantastic start, and we look forward to seeing all of you at an upcoming show.”

Mouth Of The South’s new video released for “Good Intentions”

Posted by Metal Riot on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 8:33 AM (PST)

Facedown-Records-re-sign

Mouth Of The South, one of the newer bands on Christian label Facedown Records, have revealed a video for “Good Intentions” from their label debut Struggle Well. The song shows a man gripped in self doubt and loathing who is slowly eroded by dark thoughts that manifest physically. The song is pretty heavy as far as this style of rock n roll/punk influenced metal core goes, without dipping too far into the loose bowels breakdown terrain.

Watch it BELOW.

Earth Crisis announce new EP release with Bullet Tooth

Vegan metalcore founders Earth Crisis are back with another great release, keeping their recent streak going strong!

The EP will have two newly recorded songs from the band’s pioneering debut album Destroy The Machines, and two unreleased songs die-hard fans may recognize from unreleased demos from the 90’s.

 Founding member, guitarist and song writer Scott Crouse, commented, “We think the songs on Destroy The Machines are still strong, and relevant, two decades later. We have always wanted to re-record them, and figured the 20 year anniversary of the album was a fitting occasion. Our intention isn’t to erase the original versions, just offer another version we feel will offer the power and clarity the songs deserve.  We also decided to record two songs we demo’d years ago because they’re great and people need to hear them! “Behind The Mask” and “Time Of Strife” are timeless and we think ExC fans will love them.”
