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.

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).

RIYL Coheed and Cambria, BTBAM, Born Of Osiris, Metallica.

White Arms Of Athena are a band I just recently discovered and so I was thrilled to learn they are tracking a sophomore effort for Prosthetic Records.

I was just talking about this band on Twitter with some Coheed and Cambria fans and Neesh from Neeshcast Radio. Today I found out they’ve  recorded their sophomore Prosthetic effort at GodCity Studio in Salem, Mass. with acclaimed producer and Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (Every Time I Die, High On Fire, Kvelertak). The as-yet-untitled album — expected to be released later this year — will be mixed by Ballou, engineered and co-produced by Travis Kammeyer (Storm of Light, Generation of Vipers) and mastered by Alan Douches (Baroness, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

The band, which has previously shared the stage with acts including Arsonists Get All The Girls, Katalepsy, Fallujah, The Contortionist, The Ocean, East of the Wall, Holy Grail and Baring Teeth, will release further information on the upcoming release in the coming weeks. Follow them on social media for the latest updates:

How many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover?
