Australian rap-metallers The Weight of Silence released their latest track, “Green Is The New Black” earlier this week.

The track, which was released on July 17, features vocalist Danny Leal of Upon A Burning Body.

Dubbed “trap metal” in the press release and being associated with the likes of Attila, “Green Is The New Black,” is, you guessed it, about smoking weed. It’s also about getting a blow job on a plane. And then Danny is also there and has a lyric.

The Weight of Silence vocalist Jacob Pedersen explains the bands new direction for “Green is the New Black”, the debut single from their upcoming album:

“We’ve been really influenced as a group by some of the newer trap and rap sounds coming out at the moment and we’re blending that with the metal influence we’ve always had. We are also very honoured to have Danny Leal take a part in this and really bring a section in this already lively song to a new level. Upon A Burning Body’s music has been a big influence on us and you’ll hear that in this upcoming album release. You can expect heavy, hard hitting riffs with huge and heavy vocals, alongside moments with trapbeats and rap vocals.”

Asking Alexandria release new track “The Violence”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 4:59 PM (PST)

Earlier this week English rockers Asking Alexandria released their latest track “The Violence.”

Complete with a cheesy zombie movie music video that features the boys in the band, the track is the first new track since the band’s 2017 self-titled album.

The music video was written and directed by Jensen Noen and presented by Scissor Films and Sumerian Films. The video follow the plight of every day zombies: Cocaine Shane (Danny Worsnop), Peter (Ben Bruce), Disco Luke (Cameron Liddell), Phat Noah (James Cassells) and Waterboy Eric (Sam Bettley).

Says guitarist Ben Bruce:

“We are back bigger, better, louder and more insane than ever before. This single encompasses everything we have been working towards. Huge guitars, anthemic drums and some of the catchiest, most technically accomplished vocals that Danny has ever delivered, and this is only just the beginning.”

Worsnop adds:

“The Violence was an incredibly rewarding song to create. Ben and I both got to go way outside anything we’d done before and create something fresh and engaging. Thematically the song is about the way mainstream media and politicians manipulate and spread mistruth amongst the people to encourage and create anger, fear, division, and conflict in their quest to control and acquire power. As the history books have shown, this only goes so far before the people stand up and say enough is enough. I hope everyone enjoys what we’ve created here, we had a great time making it, and even more fun shooting the video!”

Asking Alexandria are headed out on the road later this month with Papa Roach and Bad Wolves on the “Who Do You Trust” US Summer Tour. Then in September Asking Alexandria will join Shinedown, Papa Roach, and Savage After Midnight on another North American tour.

Belarus metallers Essence of Datum have released their newest track “Pendulum” via No Clean Singing.

“Pendulum” comes off the band’s forthcoming album Spellcrying Machine due out August 30 via Season of Mist Records.

Regarding the new album, the band comments:

“One of the most attractive buildings in our hometown is Minsk city crematorium! The comprehension of the fact that there’s a very high probability that our physical presence in this world will end up there and the bodies will be committed to flames, puts a veil of peculiar magic on this place. When walking in the halls of crematorium you cannot but notice giant pendulums that stand still symbolizing frozen time. It is the pendulum that gives more emphasis to the present before the inevitable end to come thus leaving us greedily gasping for the moments remaining. The pendulum in ‘Spellcrying Machine’ holds a special place and we’d like to set off a story with this composition. Until then, let the Pendulum swing!”

XX sees Ufomammut’s Poia performing acoustic guitar and effects, Urlo handling vocals, synth, and effects, and Vita on drums and percussion, with Ciccio and Stefano Tocci handling sound production and recording. The sound was mixed by Stefano Tocci at Ampire Studio and mastered by Luca Piazza at Zen Garden Studio.

Ufomammut offers:

“We thought it could have been great to celebrate our twenty years as a band with something different. We wanted to collect all our music in a single place, but we wanted also to do something that we never did before, so we thought about to play a different version of some songs. The ‘acoustic side’ came out from that and we’re very proud of the result we were able to play in front of our beloved fans during our latest spring tour. It was amazing to share these songs with all the people that are following us since the beginning. This is a present for all of them and also for us, for what we’ve been during these long twenty years.”

The XX box set will see release on September 9 through Ufomammut’s own Supernatural Cat Records.

The Contortionist have released “Early Grave” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, June 28, 2019 at 11:11 AM (PST)

Indiana metallers The Contortionist earlier this week released a music video for their newest single “Early Grave.”

“Early Grave” comes off the upcoming EP Our Bones due out August 9 via Entertainment One/Good Fight Music.

The “Early Grave” video was produced and directed by Corey Norman and produced and edited by vocalist Michael Lessard.

Our Bones is a follow up to 2017’s Clairvoyant.

“Once I was finally able to get Robby to record that riff we started piecing together the song in the back of the van, while on tour in Europe,” Lessard recalls of “Early Grave.”

“We try to do something different with everything we create,” explains Lessard. “With our albums, we tend to work with overarching interconnected themes. Our Bones is a departure. It offered an opportunity to dive into some things we haven’t had a chance to explore, and the shorter EP format allowed us to be hyper-focused on each song.”

Our Bones was mixed and mastered by longtime collaborator Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Through The Eyes Of The Dead), who worked on Language and Clairvoyant.

The Contortionist will be heading out on tour next month with Between The Buried and Me and Nick Johnston. Check out the video for “Early Grave” as well as those tour dates here.

Portuguese metallers Enchantya’s newest album drops today! The album On Light And Wrath is out via Inverse Records.

On Light And Wrath was recorded, mixed and mastered by Fernando Matias (Moonspell, Bizarra Locomotiva, We Are The Damned, Sinistro, etc.). Says singer Rute Fevereiro of the album:

“On Light and Wrath is Enchantya’s musical essay about the two extremes of the human existence and the struggle for balance within and outside the soul. Inspired by the union of opposites Enchantya present this concept in their music, facing darkness in heavy tracks like “Last Moon of March” and “From the Ashes” and diving into the light in moments like “Near Life Experience” and “Downfall to Power”, with the interlude “Alma” making the bridge between two worlds of emotions that are complementary. With the presence of unforgettable guests, a choir and orchestrations, Enchantya promise with “On Light and Wrath” a listening experience that you won’t forget.”

May Metal Mass Destruction: Exumer, Wormwitch, EZOX tidbits

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 9:55 AM (PST)

Exumer want you to know about tick prevention/Photo credit: Silvy Maatman

 

Today we would like to start by saying an RIP to icons of metal art Rosław Szaybo and Larry Carroll, known for their work with Judas Priest and Slayer, respectively.

“Our memories of Rosław Szaybo are strong and he will always be remembered for his now legendary covers he created for Judas Priest as well as the Priest logo – our thoughts and condolences are with his family – love to Ros,” Judas Priest said of Roslaw.

I also want to say that today, 5/23 is always a somber day for me for personal reasons, the anniversary of the passing of my first drummer. It is important to me to spread his drumming since his life was cut short rather young and he was a great talent in the 90’s Woodstock music scene and good guy, so humor my tweet here – please. One love.

On a brighter note, we have a lot of powerful metal news for you today.

First up, metal masters Exumer have a new video out.

The idea behind Exumer’s new video clip “King’s End” is to visually pay homage to the look and visual aesthetics of the MTV/Headbanger’s Ball era clips from the late 80s and early 90s. Especially when CGI became available as a tool to add effects that were otherwise financially impossible to obtain. The clip was entirely shot, edited and directed by Goreminister in Essen (Turock Club)/Germany during Exumer’s last European dates.

Exumer singer Mem V. Stein: “We were approached by our buddy Goreminister, who has his own You Tube channel and is a pretty known character in the Metal scene in and around Essen, if we would be interested in a new video that resembles old Headbanger’s Ball clips. We instantly were on board with the concept and are now excited to launch something that uniquely resembles the early 90s over the top videos we devoured back when Metal was still on Television.”

Get ready for the fun contradictory combination of nostalgic feelings for a new music video, lifers.

What have you all been listening to? I am real keen on the new Wormwitch Heaven That Dwells Within that came out in April, which I finally purchased last night HERE. Even ordered the physical cd cuz it will be nice to have for driving in areas where streaming isn’t so good. Super snarled, dourly melodic blackened deathy thrashened song writing dark majesty with just enough balance between bite and precision.

 

About one year and a half after the official release of their EP Crawl To Paradise (2018), French melodic metallers EZOX just officially released its debut album called One Last Breath, produced @ Recuiem Prod studios (All Dogmas We Hate) and available right now for CD & Digital editions on bandcamp and the main legal platforms.

In addition to the album-release, the band also unveiled a 4K music video for the single “For Today” available on YouTube platform.

Stream the whole album on Bandcamp .

Shattered Sun release new song “Shades of Melodie”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, May 20, 2019 at 4:43 PM (PST)

Hey gang. I am all achy from rocking out on Sunday to P.O.D. in Poughkeepsie and having fun over the weekend. They rocked the house and also dedicated their mellower song “Beautiful” to Clown from Slipknot in the wake of his daughter’s tragic passing and it was a moving moment. I’d also like to say briefly that Terry from Obituary’s daughter also just passed away in a tragic accident and to please help if you can.

There is an online fundraiser for her kids and stuff and it is very sad what happened. I might not have always agreed with some of Butler’s recent politics about Trump’s wall the last few years but I certainly have compassion for anyone who lost a child to tragedy and I think it is very important we lift one another up in the metal scene through things like this. It’s a meaningful way we can create more healing and understanding.

Texas Metalcore/trad thrash crossover band Shattered Sun have a new album on the way and have released a stunner of a new track via Outburn and a must read interview for fans of the band on their newest era. The song also has to do with daughters, which I guess is our unintentional theme today – but that’s ok! Be thankful for your loved ones.

All I can say is the song represents a major leap forward for the dudes and the new line-up and changes in the act seem healthy and exciting. I love this band and have always had good experiences talking to them or seeing them live and fully support them as an important younger rising act. I think they are between labels at the moment but that likely wont last long and either way we will support them around these parts.

Vocalist Marcos Leal says of the new song, “This song is particularly special to me given it’s about my daughter Melodie. It’s safe to say that becoming a father changes a man – it becomes your every living and dying breath to be the guide and protector to your child. I know a lot of people can relate to the message of this song and I’m excited for you all to get a taste of the new era of Shattered Sun!”

Slipknot return with bad ass anthem “Unsainted”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 1:37 PM (PST)

Man, if this here be “mainstream metal” I am not complaining. Like every other heavy music news outlet today we had to remind ya about new Slipknot. The fiercely good jam “Unsainted” from We Are Not Your Kind already has over a million YouTube views, which is friggin’ nuts. I don’t know about you but I got chills imagining how the live singalongs with the crowd are gonna be for this number and I already am digging it more than anything on the previous record. This reminds me of the first album combined with The Subliminal Verses but with a towering maturity and confidence rather than the initial hunger of the pack. Very solid effort from a band this far into their career who could be just serving up a plate of shit and raking in the cash anyway, but Corey Taylor and company care more than that.

It is crazy when you hear a rock song for the first time and can safely say ,”Ok, this is an easy pick for one of the biggest rock songs of the year”, but here we are. And it shouldn’t be startling since Slipknot have some of the most diehard fans around and are very consistent.
