SOLITARY have a new single out called “Abominate”, a classic sounding thrash song fans of Overkill, Sacred Reich, early Testament or Kreator could quickly find common ground with. The old school vibe is paired with impressively tight musicianship on an almost impossible level. New album The Truth Behind the Lies is set for international release on October 23rd via Metalville Records. Featuring footage from the band’s Bloodstock Open Air appearance and the working sketches of the album artwork. Loving Richard Sherrington’s hoarse and bitter vocals on this one!

Melodic death band DORMANTH are  confidently revealing details for their upcoming 4th album, Complete Downfall, which will be released on December 15th, 2020 via Xtreem Music on CD.

Sepultura‘s fearless and ferocious Quadra is one of their most cohesive and stunning musical achievements yet in the band’s long legacy. The album is the band’s most successful record since 1998’s Against, charting in 17 countries and entering the top 20 in 7 countries (8, considering the UK Rock Charts). It is also their most successful album in Germany and Switzerland to date, exceeding the chart positions of Roots, with positions number 5 and number 13, respectively.

From Andreas and Eloy masterfully building up anticipation in the intro to the massive heavy sections screaming for awareness, “Guardians Of Earth” is yet another reason this album is so timely. Watch the gorgeous and moving video below.

DARK TRANQUILLITY release “Phantom Days” video

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 9:49 AM (PST)

Melodic death metal pioneers Dark Tranquility are returning with their new masterpiece Moment, which will be released on November 20th via Century Media. Listen to the first single “Phantom Days” here, which fuses their “their trademark blend of bright melodies and venomous evil,” as noted by Brooklyn Vegan. Elsewhere, Loudwire proclaimed that their “melododeath reign continues.”

Moment was recorded at Nacksving Studios and Rogue Music by Martin Brändström and then mixed/mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios. The album sees the addition of two top-tier guitarists — Christopher Amott (ex-Arch Enemy) and Johan Reinholdz (Nonexist) to the band. It’s been four years since the Dark Tranquility released their last album Atoma, which was nominated for a Swedish Grammy Award. The band is considered one of the pioneering acts of the Gothenburg metal scene, which also includes bands such as In Flames and At the Gates.

Melodic folk death metal band Ensiferum have released a new lyric video for my favorite song “Run From The Crushing Tide” from Thalassic. This record has been an explosive and inspiring new era for the band and is one of the absolute best epic metal albums of 2020, a must support release! The addition of new keyboard player/lead clean vocalist Pekka Montin has been a huge hit with fans, one of the best decisions of Ensiferum’s already storied legacy!

“Run From the Crushing Tide” is one of the songs which best captures the grim sea adventure themes of this specific album. Amazing high vocals, roaring gutturals and a truly momentous warrior-minded guitar centric bridge. I am very pleased they have released this song as a single as it is perhaps the best song on the record.

Mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren, Thalassic was recorded and produced in Petrax and Sonic Pump studios by Janne Joutsenniemi, who was involved on their albums Victory Songs (2007) and From Afar (2009).

“We like to go to a studio when we have all the songs 99.9% ready so the producer’s main job is to kick our asses while we record,” states bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. “Of course Janne Joutsenniemi is a world-class producer, and we asked his opinion if we were doubting any details. It was really a pleasure to work with him again, and I think this was one of the most easy-going studio sessions I have ever been part of. We are extremely happy with the result.”

The album is also charting well!

Heavy metallers Eleine have unleashed a powerful new video for “As I Breathe”, a blend of symphonic and melodeath that just kicked my ass! Huge melodies and punishing guitar abounds! Fans of Tarja, Arch Enemy, Delain will find plenty to love about this killer tune. Dancing In Hell is this Swedish band’s third long player and you should definitely pre order it today! It releases late November and is sure to be one of the last monumental records of the underground you can use to blast 2020 into the stratosphere as we look towards better days.

Now this is what I am talking about! Love when a band does their own cool take on a cover, especially something that isn’t such an obvious song pick in the first place. Symphonic metal band RAVENLIGHT have offered up a killer and fresh take on Ghost’s Meliora B-side ‘Zenith’, transmuted into the band’s own Irish symphonic metal aesthetic. The results are pretty glorious, I must say.

Singer Rebecca Feeney had the following to say about the track: “Zenith may seem a not so obvious song for a cover, however, we went with Zenith for many reasons. I really enjoyed singing along to it, it really suited my range. Furthermore, we felt that Zenith is a very underrated Ghost song, due to the fact that it is a bonus track on the Vinyl version of Meliora, so it is not as well known as other tracks, giving us a chance to really put our own spin on it.”
Hey Cardinal or Papa or whoever is in charge of the Ghouls these days, grab this band up with an opening slot the next time touring can happen again!

Boundaries have announced their debut full-length, Your Receding Warmth, due out November 13th via Unbeaten Records. To mark the occasion, the band shared the devastating lead single “Carve” with an accompanying music video that ‘…follows the good and bad that rushes into one’s life to fill an emotional gap’. I love how the very angry vocals are still intelligible, yet all consuming. Also really like the guitar tone, heavy but not just completely distorted mush. The very first riff even reminded me of RATM for half a second before going into more metalcore/aggro post hardcore territory. Also really digging the album title, painting a relatable picture of estrangement. The anticipated album was recorded with producer Randy Leboeuf at Graphic Nature Audio and we look forward to it. . Your Receding Warmth is available to preorder here and the music video for “Carve” is available to watch on YouTube as well as to stream on Spotify.

Digital is HERE and Physical pre-orders are available HERE.

Eyes premiere “Distance” video over at Decibel Magazine

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at 1:35 PM (PST)

Danish metallic hardcore noisemakers Eyes have released a video for their song “Distance” over at Decibel Magazine!

“Distance” comes off the band’s upcoming debut album Underperformer due out September via Indisciplinarian.

Eyes is made up by five young veterans from the Danish metal and hardcore scene, and the new album Underperformer reflects a combo that does not worry one bit about what fans, the scene, or people in general might think. One senses an artistic kinship with bands such as Daughters, Pissed Jeans, and Converge, all bands who started out with a particular sound and have changed and developed their musical vision significantly; something Eyes aims for as well, and succeeds in.

Barely over two years since the band’s eponymous debut EP saw the light of day, Eyes delivers their Underperformer. The record was produced by Tobias Munk Tønder (Église, Drukner), mastered by Jacob Bredahl (Lifesick, I Am Bones) who also contributes guest vocals to several songs on the record, and completed with artwork by Jon Gotlev/No Heroes.

The new video for “Distance” was directed by Ausrine Kurgonaite and Chey Long-Andersen.

Eyes lead singer Victor Kaas states about the “Distance” single:

“‘Distance’ is the shortest and most aggressive track on the record, by a small margin, as the whole record is pretty fucking aggressive. It was also one of the first songs we wrote for the album and it ended up being the song that really shaped the sound of Underperformer. Lyrically, the song is about discovering when something isn’t as it should be in your life. The feeling of reaching out, only to be met with dismissal and misunderstanding. If you’re depressed; don’t stop reaching out. Not everyone will understand; someone will.”

Head over to Decibel Magazine to see the video for “Distance.”

Chelsea Grin release “Bleeding Sun” lyric video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, July 24, 2020 at 2:30 PM (PST)

Salt Lake City deathcore metallers Chelsea Grin have released a lyric video for their song “Bleeding Sun.”

This is the band’s first new track since 2018’s Eternal Nightmare LP, which was released via Rise Records.

“Bleeding Sun” is a political track that hearkens to the best of deathcore. With imagery that reminds me of when I first started watching political punk and metal music videos, Chelsea Grin is out to make a statement.

Check out the lyric video here.
