SCOTT KELLY of NEUROSIS announces a European solo tour for early 2018, where he’ll be accompanied by John Judkins of Rwake.
The tour will be supported by the release of a 7″ EP which captures the two artists performing at their show at White Water Tavern in Little Rock, Arkansas on March 3rd, 2017, during a US tour together. In selecting these two songs for the release, SCOTT KELLY offers, “we felt that they show the depth, emotion, and life that we are trying to bring to them.”
This limited edition live 7″ will be sold throughout the tour via My Proud Mountain, available in quantities of 200 on purple vinyl and 100 on black vinyl. A full overview of the dates can be found below.

From the crunchy guitar and classic metal vocal power of Savage Messiah’s “Solar Corona” from Hands Of Fate to Bell Witch’s herculean Mirror Reaper to All Pigs Must Die’s latest audio attack to Gwar’s first record without Oderus, late October 2017 has some brilliant moments for the metal world to enjoy and argue over! Check out why we recommend this handful for you to purchase before November’s coming fire BELOW.Add to My Radar
Calgary-based thrash-laden blackened death metaller Haiduk is offering two tracks “Nergion” and “Nazon” for free off of his latest album Demonicon.
Luka Milojica (writer/producer) had this to say about the album:
“It’s a crusher! This album has some of my best riffs. I don’t waste my time, I don’t waste your time. This is true Haiduk the way it was meant to be: cold, evil, blasting arrangements featuring some unique guitar work. 9 songs, 9 demons, risen from the volcanic underworld of Octavia in the realm of Callost – a fantasy world setting, which serves as the basis for the map, lyrics, and short stories contained in the CD booklet.”
Check out the tracklist and album art for Demonicon and stream “Nazon” and “Nergion” here.
Tokyo doom pumellers Church of Misery are preparing to release And Then There Were None.
And Then There Were None will be released on March 4 via Rise Above Records.
“Confessions of An Embittered Soul”, the album’s first single, is available via Decibel Magazine for streaming.
Check out the track list and cover art for And Then There Were None here.
Arizona jokesters Psychostick have released a music video for their song “Megaman”.
“Megaman” is a parody of Heart’s “Magic Man” and pays tribute to the classic video game of the same name.
Psychostick will also be on tour with Soil, Beyond Threshold and Via in December.
Check out the video for “Megaman”, a free download link for the song and tour dates here.
The Migration from Scale The Summit was arguably their most thrilling audio journey yet (though Carving Desert Canyons is still incredible). Now the band of progressive instrumental rockers are hitting the studio with Jamie King (Gospel Of The Witches, The Contortionist) to follow up The Migration. Expect a summer release from Prosthetic Records.
Additionally, STS has announced a line-up change for the new release, as drummer J.C. Bryant has joined the group. The band says, “We have parted ways with our drummer Pat Skeffington. Pat is a fantastic drummer and will be greatly missed. We wish him the absolute best in the future! Moving forward, we’d like to officially welcome J.C. Bryant as the new drummer for Scale The Summit. We just finished drum tracking for the new album this past weekend and can’t wait for everyone to hear the songs! Get excited!”
Studio footage HERE.
Bryant added, “I’ve known the Scale guys for years, and I’m excited for the opportunity to work alongside them in the creative process!”
I gotta say, despite the new Megadeth rumors I’d still rather listen to Scale The Summit at this point any day. Or solo Marty Friedman. In either case, Prosthetic Records has me covered!
California tech-death slammers Inanimate Existence have released a music video for their song “The Rune of Destruction”.
“The Rune of Destruction” comes off the band’s recently released album A Never-Ending Cycle of Atonement, which was released earlier this year via Unique Leader Records.
Check out the video for “The Rune of Destruction” here.
This interview is a tad different from our normal interviews. Instead of interviewing a band member, we decided to interview an organization that has an impact on band members, fans of all music genres, and people of all ages. I recently had the opportunity to chat with Jason Blades of the now infamous non-profit organization To Write Love On Her Arms.
We discussed the journey that has been TWLOHA throughout the years and the future of the organization.

In recent times whenever a new release from Greek masters of the dark arts Septicflesh hits stores, you know you are in for probably the most ambitious thing you’ll hear all year. 2014 is no different, with their new Prosthetic Records masterwork Titan a strong contender already for album of the year.
Mixed and mastered by ex-Machine Head/Soulfly guitarist Logan Madder, it is a journey of unimaginable highs and lows that I could scarce do justice with a feeble description. “Dogma” is my favorite track, an onslaught of chilling proportions and vast space with amazing brass work and huge guitars roaring over abyssal depths.
The 4th behind the scenes video features great quotes from the band on getting the most blackened guitars possible, plus footage of them working with a children’s choir and their compatriots in the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. This is the real deal on every level, a titan of a record for certain. And as the footage points out, man was first made wise by a Titan, Prometheus.
Pick up a copy of Titan on 2CD Digipak (featuring an extra disc of five orchestral bonus tracks) or Gatefold 2LP from the band at one of their upcoming co-headlining shows throughout North America with Fleshgod Apocalypse, or from the Prosthetic webstore HERE. Digital downloads are also available now via iTunes (Standard / Deluxe) and Amazon MP3 (Standard/Deluxe).

Baby, quit your cryin’…
Much has been said about the cause of death of the top Scumdog due to a heroin overdose in recent hours, but let’s face it…the obvious truth is Oderus thought it’d be a miracle if he made it to 50. And he did. Then what?
GWAR is eternal!
Well the wheels keep rolling
And another signpost gone
Baby can’t you hear me calling
Like a sad whale song [X2]
Sad whale baby
Georgia metal band Mastodon have announced the name of their upcoming album which is set for release later on this year. The album will be titled Once More Around the Sun.
To read comments by bassist Troy Sanders Click here:
Once More Around the Sun is the bands sixth studio album and a follow-up to their 2011 September release The Hunter. The album will contain 15 songs and was produced by producer Nick Raskulinecz.
Queensrÿche have many great eras and albums, the best of which is a hotly debated topic amongst rock fans. I love almost everything they have ever done (especially Empire, Condition Human, Tribe and Rage For Order being my personal faves - don't yell at me Mindcrime fanatics, haha). It is flat out dumb not to respect them and consider them a very important legacy band. Tate and La Torre are both vocal giants who have led the always skilled line ups and there is always something to offer. Anyway, the band still kicks ass and The Verdict was another killer release last year on Century Media. "Inner Unrest" is their new video from that album, a song tackling PTSD. "'Inner Unrest' is an abstract characterization loosely based on the struggles dealing with PTSD. The internal and external battles one must fight daily," states Queensryche frontman Todd LaTorre about the track. See the band live with John 5 and Eve To Adam in 2020! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSnXabEh7Xg&feature=youtu.be
