Unearth ‘The Oncoming Storm’ Vinyl Re-Issue news

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 3:15 PM (PST)

Pre Orders are now available HERE for a re-issue of Unearth‘s breakout album The Oncoming Storm. The record helped make the band one of the guiding lights of Metalcore in the early 00’s and built on the promise of earlier material soundly. Perhaps the band’s most ‘classic’ early release with fans, Unearth really hit an early career stride with this release by slightly refining their twin guitar attack into a more road tested and deadly professional sound. Nonetheless, it still remains heavy as hell and the band have never broken that pact with fans.

The Oncoming Storm LP re-issue

Threat Signal stream new album ‘Disconnect’ in full

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 9:33 AM (PST)

Threat Signal have returned with their near impervious new smasher Disconnect. You can order the bruising new futuristic groove metal album from Agonia HERE in lots of format options  (we’re kinda digging the lifesaver looking red and blue vinyl). Props to the dudes on a fearsome return. This record really enhances their overall discography and unifies a lot of elements. Some exciting moments, to be sure. RIYL Fear Factory, Soilwork, Linkin Park.

Metal singer is first openly trans person to win state legislator

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 1:03 PM (PST)

Danica Roem made myself and a lot of other people cry last night when she won a race in VA against an LGBTQ bigot. Metal Riot has two trans writers, myself included, so it was certainly nice to see some national representation turn the tide on hate. Minneapolis even elected their first African American trans woman to city council! We are regular people who just want to live our lives.

Decibel has Roem’s victory speech HERE, in which she actually also thanks metalheads! Metal scribe Kim Kelly has a good profile on Roem you can read HERE as well.

Parker Molloy from Upworthy had one of my favorite reactions on Twitter:

Get down in the dirt with In This Moment’s “Roots” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 12:06 AM (PST)

Some people who are more kvlt bag on In This Moment because they are (gasp) melodic and poppy at times, theatrical and very popular. Guess what? They are blowing away acts much bigger than them on the regular and won me over hugely after I finally saw them live. Maria Brink couldn’t possibly be more committed to what she is doing and “Roots” is sure to win more converts as she leads her band in a song of strength and resilience. They put in 100% in presentation, a huge layered rock sound and striking energy and passion. Check out this latest cut from Ritual.

While we all mourn the end of DEP, the band have some stuff still up their sleeves. Behold the new video for “Limerent Death”, one of the key tracks from grand finale Dissociation ( Note: so far it is a finale, I mean. Ministry made like 3 farewell records after all and now are just basically back so who knows…anything is possible in an age where At The Gates, Quicksand and At The Drive In all have new reunion material). But yeah, whether the band return someday remains to be seen. Meanwhile celebrate their succinct brand of brash bombast HERE.

Vocalist Greg Puciato comments: “So … we could’ve gone the normal route and put a video out before our record came out, but the truth is we were so wiped out from the writing and the recording and the weight of the breakup that we just couldn’t give a shit at the time. Besides, we knew that nothing more conceptual than live footage ever felt right for this song anyway, and at the time, after being off tour for a while … well … there just wasn’t any. So here’s a little something, directed by Oleg Rooz, who lived with us for our last European tour and shot endlessly. It’s only a year after our album came out and about a dozen shows away from the band finale, but hey … fashionably late.”

The bros of Lionheart have released a video for their latest slammer “Still Bitter Still Cold”.

 The track comes from the band’s upcoming album Welcome To The West Coast II and premiered with Kerrang! Magazine.

The song title and lyrics are a continuation/tie-in to some of our older material,” says vocalist Rob Watson. “The mid-tempo groove is heavy, dark, and helps tell the story perfectly. This is one of our favorite tracks on the new album and one we really look forward to playing live.

Welcome To The West Coast II is available now for pre-order via Fast Break Records (for US) and BDHW (for EU).

“Still Bitter Still Cold” is live now on Spotify.

All Out War Decibel Flexi Series “Accept No Masters” track streaming

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 6:15 PM (PST)

Call Newburgh’s metallic hardcore outfit All Out War legends/tyrants/veterans or whatever, they still lead the pack. 2017 found the ferocious band recently dropping Give Us Extinction (their sixth mosh fest) to eager fans. Now you can also hear a song “Accept No Masters” from the same sessions as part of the Decibel Flexi Series HERE. Most people are not ready to be unplugged from bad systems and this song underscores the need for new solutions. A cool and eerie intro gives way to a terrifying high speed attack before an insane pit starter mid tempo bash section comes in. It is hard to hear this song without envisioning windmilling crazy people.

Recorded at West West Side Studios with Steve Evetts and mastered by Alan Douches with artwork by Alexandre Goulet, Give Us Extinction is the band’s first full length since 2010’s Into The Killing Fields. It includes a cover of Nausea’s “Cybergod,” and features guest vocals on “Choking On Indifference” and “Cybergod” by Emily Muscara (Straphangers), and on “Carcass Rot” by Michelle Eddison (ex-Starkweather).

Threat Signal deliver forceful new single “Exit The Matrix”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 4:45 PM (PST)

Threat Signal have returned with some long awaited new music. “Exit The Matrix” is the first taste of Disconnect (pre order HERE now!), due out on November 10th worldwide via Agonia Records. Def cool to hear their sound again and there is even a little more progressive edge to the bridge and solo section that were a cool surprise. Not feeling the cleans on this one as much as some of the older stuff, but Jon Howard remains an in charge force on the screams nonetheless. I really do think if Linkin Park moves forward he is literally the only ideal choice for the job.

Anyway, I am gonna go back to enjoying the last few episodes of American Gods that I need to catch up on but this Threat Signal news was absolutely welcome energy that a lot of us were waiting for! Great to have them back.

THREAT SIGNAL – Exit The Matrix (Official Lyric Video)

NEW SONG PREMIERE! Listen to the first single from our long-awaited fourth studio album, "Disconnect", due out on November 10th worldwide via Agonia Records. The track "Exit The Matrix" is available in the form of a lyric video below, or on YouTube, at:https://youtu.be/Kviui27X7RUPRE-ORDER the new album at:CD/BOX/LP/MERCH: https://agoniarecords.com/threatsignaliTunes: http://radi.al/THREATSIGNALBandcamp: https://agoniarecords.bandcamp.com/album/disconnectJon commented: "Well, we made it to album number 4! To say its been a tough ride would be an understatement, but as the shit piles on, we'll keep shovelling that shit off!! So we began writing this album back in 2012, and continued writing over the next 3 years until we were able to hit the studio again. Basically our thought process while writing was to not have an end goal of what the album should sound like. We didn't plan to make a really heavy album, or a melodic album, or take anyone else's input on what we should sound like. We basically just wrote songs with a clear and open mindset until Disconnect grew together. This album ranges from melodic metal, to hard rock, to thrash metal, and even down to a chill acoustic tune, its a roller coaster of a ride while staying true to the Threat Signal sound. You will feel the energy from all of our previous albums plus something new. A big thanks to Agonia records for believing in us and finally getting this album released. Also a HUGE thanks to the fans for sticking with us over the years. I'd like to dedicate our album Disconnect to my fallen friend and former Threat Signal drummer Norm Killeen. May you be jamming with the best of them in the next life!!! Peace and love"."Disconnect" was recorded and produced by Jon Howard and lead guitarist Travis Montgomery. Mixing and mastering were done by Mark Lewis (DevilDriver, Whitechapel, Battlecross, Coal Chamber). Artwork for the album was created by Ludovic Cordelieres of Rusalkadesign (Kamelot).Tracklist:1.

“…It’s about moving forward and leaving what’s behind you exactly that, behind you.” – Brock Lindow

 

Everyone sort of recalls the cover art for 36 Crazyfists A Snow Capped Romance the best, perhaps. It is kind of the record art you maybe subtly most associate with the band as far as branding, even though I listen to other albums by them more. But I feel like the NEW artwork for Lanterns sort of fits them as a band the most. The traveler faces the cold and the road ahead but is not overcome by it, a solid metaphor for an inspirational band that has pushed forward no matter what for over two decades as a leading light in grooving, depressive, melodic nu hardcore fusion and hard rock. There was a solid thumbs up from fans for the new track “Death Eater”, which premiered recently at Loudwire .

 

This group just really hits the sweet spot for me as far as cultivating their own sound and path/holding their own no matter what is the current biggest trend. I think they fuckin’ slay year after year.

 

It was great to catch up with vocalist Brock and learn more about the ebb and flow of sadness and motivation that fed one of the strongest releases yet from a band with plenty of good songs under their belts already.

Yo. It is Tuesday but feels like an extra bad Monday cuz straight up FUCK that Trump and Keebler Elf with a face made for dog dominating Jeff Sessions are pulling mad DACA bullshit. But we can at least rage to some rad heavy music. My soundtrack this morning has been some super chill Rezz Mass Manipulation, some brutish Mantar and this here Clover action we have for ya today! Clover is releasing a new 7″ vinyl later this month and have launched a preorder for it. Preorder the recorder now at: https://thebandisclover.bandcamp.com/album/7

My friend M. Guthaus elaborates:

“Our last 2 releases have both been full length albums. We decided that our next release was going to be something shorter to give potential new fans something quick and easy to listen to. In my own experience, I have sometimes found it hard to find a good listening starting point in reference to bands I am unfamiliar with who have extensive discographies. Sometimes if you try to start with a full length record, you can become quickly bored if the record is more of a slow burner. What we wanted to do with this release is try to give listeners a full grasp of what our band is all about in 2 songs. The 7” format also worked perfectly for this because we have never released anything on vinyl before.”

“For this release, we decided to put our song “Aurora” on it which we recorded with Will Putney last year for Metal Sucks Converse Rubber Tracks. It is one of the songs we are most proud of as a band so it only seemed right to put it on this record since it never had a formal physical release. We also have included “The Hunter” on this record which is a brand new track that we recorded earlier this year. I think collectively these two songs give a good presentation of what our band is all about.”

Trivium are back with a follow up to Silence In The Snow and you might be wondering if the new single is able to top what was arguably their best album since perhaps Shogun. Well, “The Heart From Your Hate” can be heard below. It is pretty cool. Little less of a Metallica/Megadeth musical vibe to this one than the “Silence In The Snow” single (which also had some of Matt’s coolest vocal melodies – It is impossible not to notice his vocal growth since working with David Draiman on Vengeance Falls).  This new single reminds me a bit more of, say, Demon Hunter or Atreyu and has a very slick feel to the riffing, not in a bad way just more like speeding in a new Corvette than a thrash march to war.

Set for release on October 20th, The Sin And The Sentence is available for pre-order today at all DSPs and www.trivium.org, with all pre-orders receiving instant grat downloads of the album’s title track and the newly released single, “The Heart From Your Hate”. As this band grows more mature and continues to carve their name in metal history, you can’t help but feel they are destined to stay one of the biggest forces for metal that can bridge to the mainstream for the next generation. Here’s hoping they keep at it.

Within The Ruins is one of our favorite weirder metalcore bands around here, always tweaking their core sound to push their boundaries further skyward. Halfway Human, their latest, is a solid follow up to the mind blowing guitar work on Phenomena that finds the band working a bit better as a full group while still remaining technically fierce and fun. Honestly kids, with Dillinger heading out to pasture you fans of technical metalcore and hardcore better hope WTR and Car Bomb stick around and keep us guessing what will come next.

Today we can say for sure that a tour is coming next as well as a new video for “Incomplete Harmony” which you can check out HERE or below.

“We’re extremely excited to announce a full U.S. headliner tour with some great supporting bands,” says guitarist Joe Cocchi.

The band is also debuting the aforementioned all new live music video for their track “Incomplete Harmony.” Directed by Bobby Bates, this is the third music video we’ve seen from Within The Ruins since the release of their latest release.

Within The Ruins will be playing the “Ataxia” instrumental in its entirety on this run, and will offer additional surprises as well. “We’ll be performing some instrumental material live for the first time ever. On top of the ‘Ataxia’ instrumental medley, we’ll be throwing in a bunch of older material from our first few albums. Come out to a gig and bang your heads!”

Check out tour dates, supporting acts and the video below.

Lionheart reunite, tour announced with Nasty

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 6:13 PM (PST)

California hardcore band Lionheart have decided that they aren’t really calling it quits after all and instead they will become a part time band. Personally I think more bands should do this rather than calling it a day because you have other obligations. I saw these dudes once live and they blew the lid off the venue and outshined the headliner, so that’s gotta mean something.

ATTN: When we announced our breakup, over a year ago, we meant it. Balancing jobs and personal lives w/ trying to tour…

Posted by LIONHEART OFFICIAL on Thursday, July 27, 2017

In addition, the band have announced dates with Nasty, saying:

Much love to our boys in Nasty. We wouldn’t have even considered coming back if we couldn’t do it with friends. Thanks for getting us back on track. See ya in the pit.
