American Sin












From the Ashes formed in Kansas City in 2016 rising from the ashes of their former bands. John Wolters, (Surrogate Sons), guitar, Tom Mundell, (For the Broken), bass, Sean Devins, (For the Broken), drums, and Carlos Blanco Zumo, (Zumo), vocals and guitar. Carlos is new on the KC music scene but arriving from the war torn country of Venezuela. Writing all original music, these men banded together to create a sound that combines melodic vocals, dual guitars, and a pounding rhythm that is pleasing to the ears. From the Ashes has opened for national recording artists Adelitas Way, Trapt, and Smile Empty Soul. They are poised to make a name for themselves in the KC music scene. Be sure to catch a live show to experience them for yourself.




Champagne Campaign

From the very beginning in early 2015, Champagne Campaign has shown to be a force to be reckoned with in the emerging rock music scene of Kansas City.  Opening for bands like Avatar, P.O.D., Drowning Pool, Alien Ant Farm, and more this band always promises to entertain all groups of music listeners.

Comprised of Lead Vocalist and Guitar Player, Ryan Lynch; Lead Guitar Player, Justin Mclintic; Bass Guitar Player, Drew Keffer; and Drummer, Zak Anderson; the group is driven to always set the bar higher than ever before.




Formed in 2017, by a chance meeting in the dairy aisle at Wal-Mart in Gardner Kansas, MOTOCYCO is comprised of Guitar/Vocalist Mike Kennedy, Drummer Mick Thomas and bassist Ed Tonsing.. MOTOCYCO brings back the days of glam, hardcore and the early hollywood scene sounds of bands such as the Misfits, Black Flag, L.A. GUns, Guns and Roses, The New York Dolls, The MC5 and KISS.

By blending the shrieking guitars of early L.A. GUNS and Guns and Roses, the backbeat drumming of Chuck Biscuits of BLack Flag and Paul Cook of The Sex Pistols and the thundering bass sounds of Geezer butler of Black Sabbath Motocyco delivers a stampeding sound only a few modern day bands can deliver. Being a power trio in the truest sense of the word, MOTOCYCO relies on being exactly on time on every single song.. Lyrics that harken back to the days of fast cars, fast women and saturday matinee horror movies, MOTOCYCO is truly a new band with an old soul.

Mike Kennedy is a veteran of the Kansas City rock scene playing bass in local stalwarts For The Broken, Tyrant Sun and 1000 YEARS WIDE. Being a fan of KISS from the time he could buy his own albums, Mike has dreamt of fronting his own band, with his own music and lyrics. MOTOCYCO gives Mike the opportunity to do just that?…be that 9 year old kid, in his basement bedroom singing the lyrics to love gun over and over and over. ?Being? Ace Frehley is finally becoming a reality.

Mick Thomas is a veteran of the Las Vegas music scene, crossing paths with such artists such as Mark Slaughter, Dana Strumm and Brett Muscatt of Faster Pussycat fame, and Mick has been playing drums since the age of 10. Mick?s former Band, Midnight Feature was a stalwart in the vegas scene and has played such classic venues such as the Double Down saloon in Las Vegas, The Black room owned by Dave Navarro of Jane?s Addiction fame. The Artist?s room in Phoenix, Az and Whiskey A Go-Go in L.A. with Deadbolt and 3 bad jacks. MIck is influenced by Clive Burr, Bonzo, Stewart Copeland, BIll Ward and Peter Criss.

Growing up on the east coast of florida, and spending his summers in texas Ed Tonsing has crossed paths with Dimebag and Vinny Paul abbott, before their rise to superstardom. Influenced by Geezer Butler. Rudy Sarzo, Jack Bruce, Steve Harris ,Geddy Lee and Rex Brown of PANTERA, Ed is a bassist?s bassist, replete with the heavy geezer butler style of bass badassery. Ed?s band, Last Night?s Regret played all over eastern and central florida, before moving to the Kansas City area in 2015. Mike met Ed thru a bassist forum on Facebook, and asked ed to join his band Killing Lilith. Ed agreed and Mike and Ed created some great guitar and bass music along with Billy Alexander of Razorwire Halo on drums. Killing lilith never got fully off the ground because the vocalist quit before the first show.

MOTOCYCO is coming for you, so shine up your Doc Martens, grab your Aquanet, tease up that hair and get your ass in the circle pit.

Getcha’ Pull! “Dimevision Vol. 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over” DVD/CD to be Released via Metal Blade Records

Out November 24, 2017 | PledgeMusic Campaign & Pre-Orders Begin Now!

Watch a Trailer Here

Visit the PledgeMusic Page Here

With 2006’s Dimevision Vol 1: That’s The Fun I Have, fans of Dimebag Darrell and his work with Pantera and Damageplan were afforded the chance to see into the world of the legendary guitarist. Compiled from the many, many hours of video footage captured between the mid-80s and his later years, it was a funny, touching and poignant memorial.

Metal Blade Records is thrilled to announce the release of Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over – another true celebration of the man and how he lived his life – on November 24, 2017. Pre-orders are available via Metal Blade here. The DVD/CD set – which will include more raw footage, true gems and classic Dimebag moments – will also include five previously unreleased demos, picked from a vast catalogDimebag accrued since longtime girlfriend Rita Haney gave him his first 4-track in 1984.

Beginning today at 3:33pm Texas Central “Dime Time”, a PledgeMusic campaign was launched to support the release of the set. There, you can also view an official Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over trailer. In addition to acting as a pre-order for the set, the PledgeMusic campaign includes an assortment of rare items to buy, including props and costumes that belonged to Dimebag and that you can see in his home videos/Dimevision volumes, rare stage clothing, and other merchandise. Visit the PledgeMusic page here:

Going into making Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over, Rita Haney worked in collaboration with Daryl “Bobby Tongs” Arnberger, who was not only one of Dimebag’s closest friends both on and off the road, but also worked as an official videographer for Pantera, Damageplan and a plethora of A-list musicians, from Slipknot to Dolly Parton, along with film editor Rob Fenn. After cataloguing hundreds of tapes, they chose 43 segments to create Dimevision Vol. 2.

Arnberger explains, “As we all watched, we envisioned certain segments and ideas coming to life in my head, and rather than it serving as a memorial, this second DVD is more about the vision Dime had in his head for this footage, what heactually wanted it to become. This one is more uplifting, funny, and it stays 100% true to his idea for Dimevision.”

Fans of the original know that this way of life involved a lot of whiskey, an insane amount of fireworks and a contagious desire to have fun – and like its predecessor, the title is also drawn from the words of the man himself. Having a habit of latching onto a saying or a phrase, this soon became part of his particular dialect, affectionately dubbed ‘Dime-bonics’. “It comes from something he was saying a lot in 2003 and 2004,”Haney recalls. “He’d call from the road and he’d say ‘man, I’m beat up out here, but that’s the highs and lows of rock and roll. You gotta roll with it or get rolled over.'”

“He had a unique way of seeing things, and he always lived with a video camera,” adds Haney. “No matter where we went he was always capturing what was going on, and myself and others around him were filming a lot too. In putting out these videos I just want people to see the way he was, 24/7. What you saw on stage and backstage, that was how he lived.”

Unsuspecting visitors to the couple’s home were regularly drawn in – memorable segments involve girl scouts selling cookies and Dimebag experiencing an “interesting” CPAP machine fitting – and events as mundane as taking a friend to get a pedicure become hilarious, thanks to his particular way of seeing the world. As endlessly entertaining as Dimebag was, there were of course other, deeper sides to his personality, which are also reflected in both volumesHaney adds, “There were some really touching, deep, heavy and emotional moments in the first one, where he’s talking about himself to the camera while in the shower. Filming himself like that was something he did a lot, and you’d have no clue until you’re looking through the tapes and come across them, and when you do the goosebumps crawl all over you. People that love and know Darrell are going to be touched by what he has to say, because it’s him telling you for the first time.”

As for his included demos, Dimebag not only wrote down the lyrics and dates of everything he recorded but also his thoughts on it at the time, which Haney will also be sharing with fans. However, she’s quick to point out that no one should expect high production standards (“It’s called a 4-track for a reason!”) and that these are not ‘lost’ Pantera tracks. “These songs come from his off-time, it was entertainment to him – one of them was even inspired by a George Michael solo record coming out back in the 80s!” she laughs. “But he loved making music and he appreciated all kinds of music, whether he was making a joke of it or not, it still caught his ear, and I hope people can enjoy these songs for what they are and the spirit they were made in.”

With so much footage left over, fans can rest assured that as fulfilling as Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over is, there’s still a lot to look forward to. Haney says, “We hope to make [Dimevision] an annual thing. It will all depend on if the fans want it and support it!”

EXHUMED Announces US Headlining Dates; Death Revenge To See Release This Friday Via Relapse

Gore metal maniacs EXHUMED today announce a US headlining tour set to commence November 15th and run through December 8th. Support will be provided by Arkaik. The trek will follow the band’s previously announced short run of live dates with The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Decrepit Birth and more as well as a performance at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on November 5th in San Bernardino, California. See confirmed dates below.

“We can’t wait to unleash a casket full of new tunes and old favorites on some maniacs,” issues frontman Matt Harvey. “It’s been too long since we rolled into your town, drank all your beer, and ripped your faces off. See you there, you filthy animals!”

EXHUMEDs forthcoming full-length, Death Revenge, is set for release on October 13th on CD, LP, deluxe LP with cassette, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital orders are available via HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

Watch EXHUMED’s previously released videos for “Night Work” HERE and “Lifeless” HERE.

The band’s sixth full-length sees them tread into ambitious new territory with their first concept album: a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery. Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), Death Revenge takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths.

Watch new music videos/hear new tracks from ACT OF DEFIANCE:



“The Talisman”:

On Old Scars, New WoundsACT OF DEFIANCE has upped the ante. Each of the 11 new tracks sound fresh and urgent while wielding a timeless quality that will connect powerfully with metal fans new and old – and there aren’t many contemporary bands who can make such a claim. Naturally blending a plethora of metallic styles and never recycling ideas, Old Scars, New Wounds is an even more dynamic and diverse collection than its predecessor. The title – plucked from the blistering track “Conspiracy Of The Gods” – stands as a metaphor for life in general, and the breadth of lyrical matter covered is as broad as the styles of heavy music found on the record.

Recruiting producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Allegaeon) they tracked the record bi-coastal-style, with Broderick laying down guitars in his own Ill-Fated Studios in LA, Derek and Broderick’s vocals tracked at Red Light Studios also in LA, with Bachand tracking his contributions at Manshark in South Hampton, MA and Drover’s drums were laid down at Atlanta’s Glow In The Dark Studios.

ANCIENT VVISDOM: Cvlt Nation Debuts “Rise Fallen Angel” From Occult Rock Trio; Magic Bullet To Unleash 33 This Friday

“Like the morning star it praises, ANCIENT VVISDOM is more deceptive than you realize. It heralds that section of the genre that is far darker than even the loudest bands while doing a style you don’t recognize is nearly this cursed. 33 is going to live on for quite some time.” — The Sludgelord

This Friday, Magic Bullet Record will unveil 33, the impending new long player from occult rock practitioners ANCIENT VVISDOM. In advance as its release, today Cvlt Nation is offering an exclusive premiere of “Rise Fallen Angel.”

Offers Nathan “Opposition” Jochum of the track, “On these hard roads that we have ahead of us as humanitym there is but one redeemer, Lucifer. The light bearer will bring a rejuvenated energy to this world and will guide our path to a brighter future. Lucifer is redemption. Don’t be held captive by the hate that this world has forced upon us. Let your light shine bright like the sun and may the fallen angel rise once again. Be the love we need.”

Hear “Rise Fallen Angel” courtesy of Cvlt Nation at THIS LOCATION.

If you missed it, witness “The Great Beast” still playing at Decibel Magazine at THIS LOCATION as well as “Light Of Lucifer” at the Magic Bullet Bandcamp page HERE where preorders for the album are currently available.

On the band’s fourth studio offering, the perennial nucleus of brothers Nathan “Opposition” Jochum (vocals, acoustic guitar, kick drum) and Michael Jochum (guitar, backup vocals) is rounded out by new band member Connor Metsker on bass. Thematically, 33 largely continues the prior agenda of empowerment through Satanism, instinct, enlightenment, and ritual. 33 comes under the microscope on this recording and is regarded by the band as a master number. Jochum is quick to point out that it is the age that Christ was crucified, the age of the peak of existence, and the age he happened to be in making this album.

The sonic approach continues in the tradition of prior albums: deliberate, mid-tempo songs with minimal arrangements, unparalleled melody, and dynamic vocal range. ANCIENT VVISDOM could be cited as among the strongest proponents of the philosophy “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” 33 was produced by Nathan “Opposition” Jochum, engineered by Steve Rauckhorst, mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and completed with cover art by Linas Garsys and design by Emma White.

TREPANERINGSRITUALEN: Swedish Ritualistic Industrial Outfit Releases Kainskult Album Through Tesco Organization

Gothenburg, Sweden-based TREPANERINGSRITUALEN has just unveiled its latest album,Kainskult, a harrowing venture into ritualistic/death industrial madness which is now streaming in its demoralizing entirety.

TREPANERINGSRITUALEN is the work of one Thomas Martin Ekelund, who has released an impressive arsenal of albums, EPs, singles, splits, collaborations, compilation tracks, and more since its 2008 inception, through labels including Cold Spring, Malignant Records, Tesco Archaic Documents, and many others.

On Kainskult, the follow-up proper to 2014’s praised Perfection & Permanence, we find TREPANERINGSRITUALEN at its most visceral; completely devastating in its feral ferocity, and utterly demented in its elemental ecstasy. Kainskult will undoubtedly stand as a cornerstone album both in the T × R × P canon, and in the industrial scene at large. In their animalistic frenzy and emotional intensity, these nine songs immediately envelop the listener and threaten or promise to drive you to the brink of madness.

Kainskult is playing in its entirety through Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION.

The album is out now on Tesco Organization, available on LP and CD in the US HERE, place Euro physical orders HERE, and find the digital HERE as well as all major digital purchase points.

Kainskult Track Listing:

  1. Death & Ecstasy
  2. Maðr Malformed
  3. All Flesh Has Corrupted
  4. ?????
  5. Feral Me
  6. Serpent Seed
  7. An Immaculate Body of Water
  8. ?
  9. V ?V ?V

TREPANERINGSRITUALEN is touring heavily surrounding the release of Kainskult. The outfit completed a run of US tour dates over the Summer alongside Switzerland’s Bölzer, and now,Kainskult sees release through Tesco Organization as the label prepares to celebrate its thirtieth anniversary. This event will be immortalized with a three-day event in Mannheim, Germany with performances by TREPANERINGSRITUALEN, Kevlar, Alfarmania & Proiekt Hat, Contrastate, Anenzephalia, Zoät-Aon, The Grey Wolves, Post Scriptvm, Genocide Organ, and more.

TREPANERINGSRITUALEN has also confirmed a European tour with Batushka and Schammasch for the start of the new year, with eighteen shows confirmed from January 10th through January 27th. Stand by for additional TREPANERINGSRITUALEN tour dates and announcements to be made in the weeks ahead.

Kainskult keeps all the basic building blocks of Perfection & Permanence: the tribal drumming, the atavistic propulsion, the clattering metal percussion, and the abysmal growls. But somehow it reaches a new level of intensity, both sonically and lyrically. The latter read like a hallucinatory celebration of Kain, the Original Heresiarch. He is cast in the role of archetypal transgressor; the brother to all who wage war against the tyranny of Yaldabaoth. He raises the stone above His head, and with one willful strike slays His brother, the cowering slave. Through this one action He draws the Mark upon his skin, and sets in motion a series of events that will ultimately lead to the dissolution of the created worlds.

Kainskult was channeled by ?????? at the 63rd Link, 21 XII 2014-21 VI 2017 e.v., with assistance by Kim Sølve, Lina Baby Doll, Veil of Light, Nordvargr, Idlu Lili Regulus, Michael Idehall, Kim Larsen, Thomas Bøjden, Joachim Nordwall, Peter Bjärgö, DE · TA · US · TO · AS, Antti Litmanen, Daniel Hofmann, Aaron Turner, Fredrik Bergström, David S. Herrerías, Alone in the Hollow Garden. Vocals were recorded at the 63rd Link by Dag Rosenqvist. The album was mixed by Peter Johan Nijland and mastered by Linus Andersson at Element Studios.


MAMMOTH GRINDER: Magic Bullet Launches Digital Reissue Series; “Anxiety Onset” b/w “Unnatural Death” Out Today

Magic Bullet records today launches their MAMMOTH GRINDER MONDAYS series, issuing the band’s early “Anxiety Onset” and “Unnatural Death” singles into the digital domain. The four-week-long campaign sees four titles from MAMMOTH GRINDER‘s back-catalog hitting official digital streaming and purchase points for the first time.

“Anxiety Onset” and “Unnatural Death” are plucked from a long out-of-print MAMMOTH GRINDER split 7@quot; with Legion that was originally released in 2010 through Nuclear Solution. Both tracks were recorded during the Extinction Of Humanity sessions and are emblematic of the band’s shift toward a much more death metal-oriented sound around this time.

Stream and order MAMMOTH GRINDER‘s “Anxiety Onset” b/w “Unnatural Death” RIGHT HERE.

Track Listing:
1. Anxiety Onset
2. Unnatural Death

MAMMOTH GRINDER MONDAYS will continue through the majority of October, with first-time digital releases of “Obsessed With Death” October 16th, Split (featuring their tracks from the split with Hatred Surge) on October 23rd, and In And Out being issued on October 30th.

Slasher Film Festival Strategy and Anthony D. P. Mann The Hearse Song

Vinyl-only horror/spoken arts label Cadabra Records announces a new annual record series celebrating the greatest day of the year, Halloween. The Cadabra Records Presents: Halloween series begins with a 7" release of The Hearse Song, which features music by SLASHER FILM FESTIVAL STRATEGY, and readings by ANTHONY D. P. MANN.

The first installment of Cadabra Records Presents: Halloween leads with ?The Hearse Song,? the common, creepy poem which widely remembered by the lines, ?the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, the worms play pinochle on your snout.? The A-side also features a suspenseful rendition of the popular haunting story, ?The Velvet Ribbon.? The B-side of the record packs two more well-known childhood tales of horror, leading with the succinct but bold tale of the old lady in ?Skin And Bones,? followed by the more extensive and suspenseful version of ?The Teeth.?

The Hearse Song 7" flows with a creepy, diverse score by long-running horror/sci-fi film outfit SLASHER FILM FESTIVAL STRATEGY, who has unleashed a plethora of albums and various other recordings on labels like Foreign, Sounds Children Of The Night, and others since the late 1990s. The EP marks the first collaborations with the artist for Cadabra Records. The four movements are recited by returning Cadabra reader, Anthony D.P. Mann, a Canadian-based filmmaker and actor with five feature films and a lifetime of stage and radio to his credit. In roles ranging from Count Dracula and the Phantom of the Opera, to Ebenezer Scrooge.

The Hearse Song will see release this Friday the 13th of October, delivered in an edition of 500 copies on colored vinyl with a foldover die-cut sleeve. Preorders have been issued via the Cadabra Records webshop RIGHT HERE.

Australian one-man band NEKRASOV continues to orbit between the two poles of power electronics and black metal…

NEKRASOV is reminiscent of some unhallowed Lovecraftian vault, where the dreamer meets his dream: the abyss of mind and space alike, where he compositionally depicts the hinges in the deep recesses of the mind, that only a visionary can uncover. Once revealed, it?s up to the listener on whether he or she can handle the outcome.

Australian one-man band NEKRASOV continues to orbit between the two poles of power electronics and black metal, but the singular focus on otherworldliness remains consistent, and while the experience is challenging to the utmost, it is also ultimately rewarding.

For over twenty years, NEKRASOV has managed to produce a furious and manic sound while experimenting with a broad spectrum of avant-garde techniques beginning with his first release,Into The No-Man?s Sphere Of The Ancient Days, in 2007. With ambient and industrial elements colliding against his black metal roots along with abstract vocals that approach the noise of the guitar, NEKRASOV has carved out and created his own niche and cult following. His seventh full length, and first for Prosthetic Records, The Mirror Void, is set to be released on November 10th, 2017

The Mirror Void 
will be available on CD, LP, and digital formats via Prosthetic Records. For preorders point your browser HERE.

The Mirror Void
 is black metal reimagined. Not the tamed and domesticated sound possessed by so many bands today, not just another cool extreme metal subgenre, but instead, an alternative history where black metal dives deeper into its most challenging tendencies and embraces what philosopher Nick Land would term the Radical Outside. Here, misanthropy is not enough, seeing as how hating mankind would still be assigning it some sort of significance. This isn?t inhumanity, this is Unhumanity, the universe existing without us. Not unlike the negative metal NEKRASOV?s other project, Rebel Wizard, this is just more disturbing and alarming. NEKRASOV is reminiscent of some unhallowed Lovecraftian vault, where the dreamer meets his dream: the abyss of mind and space alike, where he compositionally depicts the hinges in the deep recesses of the mind, that only a visionary can uncover. Once revealed, it?s up to the listener on whether he or she can handle the outcome.

But Cane Hill‘s here ? bigger and better,” the band said. “This is in your face Cane Hill. The real Cane Hill. No makeup or gimmicks ? just musicians playing aggressive ass music that’s meant to stick in your head and you won’t want to get it out.”

THE KENNEDY VEIL: MetalSucks Premieres “Godslaughter” From Brutalizing California Death Metal Unit; Imperium Pre orders Available + Bloodletting North America Tour Nears

Imperium is the impending new full-length from brutalizing California death metal unit THE KENNEDY VEIL. Slated to drop on October 20th via Unique Leader Records, the eight-track offering was produced, mixed, and mastered by Zack Ohren (Animosity, Suffocation, All Shall Perish et al) at Castle Ultimate Productions, features guest appearances by Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder, Sven de Caluwé of Aborted, and Dickie Allen of Infant Annihilator, and comes swathed in the cover art of Robert Cook.

In advance of its release, today MetalSucks is hosting the official premiere of opening crusher, “Godslaughter.”

Issues the band, “The opening lyric of ‘Godslaughter’ simply states, ‘reclaim death.’ To us, it is a statement of remaining true to what the genre was built from, while still bringing our own ideas of modern death metal into the fold. From blast beats to slow, heavy parts, ‘Godslaughter’ has something that we think all fans of the genre can sink their teeth into.”

Sample the audio punishment of “Godslaughter,” now playing at MetalSucksRIGHT HERE.

And if you missed it, check out “Flesh Of The Sun,” featuring The Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad HERE.

Pre order Imperium at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders visit THIS LOCATION.

The occult has been a construct within civilizations all over the world, varying in degree and modernity, but always present. Each individual culture derives its occultism from the dark myths that permeate within its subconscious hive mind. America as a culture — as an experiment — has been volatile since day one. Plagued by a history of genocide, slavery, and corruption, its burgeoning occult is in its fragile yet violent infancy. Imperium highlights themes of this encapsulation: That is, fear, myth, despair, and humanity’s inclination toward utter corruption.

Taking influence from a purer, more ancient evil of European descent, THE KENNEDY VEIL has incorporated symphonic, blackened themes that parallel the lyrical aesthetic. Moving one step away from the more technical side and two steps into a deeper, darker, more blackened aggression. “The world of metal has become flooded with your quintessential ‘tech’ bands,” says drummer Gabe Seeber. “It seems to me that many metal bands of today put so much focus on cramming as many notes as possible into songs, and playing the most difficult riffs with less focus on song structures as a whole. Without taking anything away from the obvious creativity and talent of today’s generation of death metallers, we in THE KENNEDY VEIL are aiming to harken back to a more primal and aggressive form of the genre.”

THE KENNEDY VEIL 2017 features new recruits, bassist Tyler Hawkins and vocalist Monte Bernard. “Lyrically, I drew from the current culture of our nation’s short but bloody history,” Barnard notes. “In such a short time, this political experiment has not only uncovered, but proudly enacted some of mankind’s most hideous acts. This album draws from these events, highlighting a theme of universal evil hiding under the surface of all races, cultures, and peoples.”

In related news, THE KENNEDY VEIL will embark upon the Bloodletting North America tour featuring Origin, Archspire, Defeated Sanity, Visceral Disgorge, and Dyscarnate. The trek — sponsored by MetalSucks and Indiemerch — will begin October 20th in Kansas City, Missouri and run through November 18th in Denver, Colorado. See all confirmed dates below.

New England Groove Metal Band DEATH RATTLE Reveals New Track “Adrenalize”

New Album, Volition, out October 20, 2017 | Pre-Order Here

On Tour with The Convalescence Beginning October 21

New Hampshire-based groove-thrash band DEATH RATTLE recently announced the upcoming release of their sophomore full-length album, Volition, out October 20, 2017. The album is available for pre-order now via Big Cartel, with more pre-order options are coming soon.

After charging out the gates with the release of their music video for “Love and War” last week, DEATH RATTLE is following up with another blistering new track, “Adrenalize“, which you can stream via now. The band describes the track as, “a musical description of adrenaline pumping through your veins as a major battle approaches!”Listen here:

DEATH RATTLE perform thrash with a purpose – music that emphasizes groove and lethal riffage over speed and interchangeable guitar parts. It’s a sound bred from the attitude and angst of New England, a region that has faced economic and social strife and frustration time and again. Yet every time it lowers its head and pushes forward, obstacles be damned.

With more time to work on and fine-tune the songs on their second album, DEATH RATTLE were able to approach each cut from various musical directions to see what worked best. The band recorded the final tracks appearing on Volition at Brick Hithouse studio in Cape Cod, MA with engineer Sean Fitzpatrick over the course of several months.

Volition track listing:

1) Internal Determination

2) Love and War

3) Sentenced to Hell

4) Snake in the Grass

5) Adrenalize

6) Sociopath

7) Order Within Chaos

8) Unfinished Business

9) Doomsday

10) From Blood to Black

DEATH RATTLE will support the release of Volition on their upcoming tour supporting The Convalescence, Wings Denied and Shaping The Legacy. DEATH RATTLE will appear on dates running from October 21 in Placerville, CA through November 18 in Englewood, OH. See below for a full list of tour dates featuring DEATH RATTLE.

CATTLE DECAPITATION will be touring in support of their most recent full-length, 2015’s The Anthropocene Extinction. As the most sonically and thematically engrossing record of CATTLE DECAPITATION’s maniacal discography, The Anthropocene Extinction was named one of the best albums of the year by Loudwire, MetalSucks, and Metal Injection among many others. Decibel Magazine wrote, “There’s always been a fine line between extremity and listen-ability and CATTLE DECAPITATION have marvelously tiptoed that line again… their command of craft has never been better,” Exclaim! hailed, “another stroke of genius by one of the best heavy bands of all time…,” Sputnik Music lauded a, “monolith of maturity,” while Metal Injection called the record, “pure true death metal at its finest.”

* COBALT only

COBALT features multi-instrumentalist/mastermind Erik Wunder and vocalist Charlie Fell (ex-Lord Mantis). The pair will be touring in support of their Slow Forever full-length, released last year via Profound Lore Records. Pitchfork named the record the band’s, “best-ever,” and, “as accessible as it is aggressive, with magnetic hooks, shout-along mantras, and sparkling riffs.” Spin noted, “Slow…was born of isolation and betrayal, but it’s music that was meant for concert halls COBALT deserve to fill; music that rewards both introspection and reveling in like-minded rapture.” Stereogum gushed, “Slow Forever works because it’s way vaster and meaner and more monolithic than almost any album I’ve heard in recent years. It’s not an album that does things. It simply is. If you listen to it in the right frame of mind, it creates this whole visceral hell-world inside your head, and you can just go fold in on yourself and live there.” Brooklyn Vegan hailed an album of, “brutal, thrilling contradictions; raw but refined, furious but contemplative, catchy but punishing, literary but lizard-brained. Metal or not, it’s one of the best albums of the year,” giving it the #2 spot on their Top Albums Of 2016. Added Metal Injection, “Slow Forever is a commanding and magisterial composition. It stands as a frame of reference for great metal much like its predecessor and transcends the hitches and missteps that COBALT has dealt with in the space between albums… a massively rewarding experience to digest and rife with some of COBALT‘s greatest individual moments.”

SWEET COBRA‘s Earth LP was released in mid-2015 via Magic Bullet Records, the album delivering the band’s trusted and infectious ferocity through a slick, more accessible approach. It has the confidence and catchiness of the heavier moments of Queens Of The Stone Age with the drive of The Jesus Lizard; the surge and wallop of Quicksand while delving into far more diverse sonic territories. The pairing of Talbot and Ballou as co-producers has truly yielded a stunning, classic heavy album for the ages. Earth was recorded and produced by Matt Talbot of Hum and Kurt Ballou of Converge at Talbot’s Earth Analog Studios in Illinois, mixed by Ballou at his Godcity Studio in Massachusetts, and mastered by Carl Saff. Additionally, both Ballou and Talbot make guest appearances on the album.

Earth is available on CD and vinyl HERE, and digitally via Bandcamp HERE as well as all major digital outlets. Also see the band’s official video for “Repo” HERE.

SWEET COBRA is currently entrenched in the writing process of the follow-up to Earth, which will see release in 2018. Watch for updates in the months ahead.

SPIRIT ADRIFT: Entire Curse Of Conception LP Now Playing At Noisey; Album Out NOW Through 20 Buck Spin

The epic Curse Of Conception LP by Arizona’s SPIRIT ADRIFT is now streaming in its entirety at Noisey as the album is out now through 20 Buck Spin.

SPIRIT ADRIFT has taken their psychedelic doom/metal to an ascendant new level on Curse Of Conception earning their rightful place among the top tier of modern metal bands clawing their way above and beyond the underground scene. Now more than at any time metal has become the lifeblood of rock music and SPIRIT ADRIFT offers Curse Of Conception as an embodiment of that perseverant vitality. The album was engineered and mixed by Sanford Parker (Yob, Pelican, Eyehategod) and features artwork by Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Magic Circle, Autopsy).

Noisey has posted an interview with the desert metallers alongside an advance stream of Curse Of Conception, issuing of the album, “The Sabbathian aura of Chained To Oblivion has moved away from the foreground. In its place is an aggressive, doom-informed take on classic thrash and traditional metal. Towering, crisp riffs and subtle melodies carry Southern-inspired swells as Garrett’s Arkansas roots shine through on songs like ‘To Fly on Broken Wings’ and ‘Wakien,’ the latter a staggering instrumental composition that billows with majestic arioso. Meanwhile, heavier songs like the title track, ‘Graveside Invocation,’ and ‘Onward, Inward’ are reminiscent of Master Of Puppets – if it were played at two-thirds the normal speed.”

Explore SPIRIT ADRIFT‘s Curse Of Conception at Noisey RIGHT HERE.

20 Buck Spin will release Curse Of Conception worldwide on LP, CD, and digital formats this Friday, October 6th. Find preorders at Bandcamp HERE, through the label webshop HERE, and iTunes HERE.

SPIRIT ADRIFT has booked a pair of Curse Of Conception release shows, one in Tempe on October 7th alongside Atriarch, Take Over And Destroy, and Divine Hammer, and the second in Denver on October 14th with Khemmis and Abrams. Stand by for more widespread touring in support of the record to be announced in the weeks ahead.

SPIRIT ADRIFT Curse Of Conception release shows:

10/14/2017 The Hi-Dive – Denver, CO w/ Khemmis, Abrams

Formed by members of Gatecreeper, Goya, and more, SPIRIT ADRIFT caused many listeners to take notice with their debut album Chained To Oblivion, it is on Curse Of Conception that the band has taken a giant leap forward in songwriting prowess, production and confidence. From Metallica/’Priest-like moments to epic crescendos, radio-ready crawlers to sky-shaking thunder, SPIRIT ADRIFT is aiming sky high with burning focus and peak vigor. Throughout the duration, brick-heavy riff assembly, somber southern atmospherics, and grand melodies entwine flawlessly into perfect metallic majesty. Fans of Crowbar, Metallica, Judas Priest, Testament, Khemmis, Thin Lizzy, Rwake, Yob, Alice In Chains, Baroness, Pallbearer, Mastodon, and Katatonia, pay heed to the band’s entrancing riffs.


See them on the road in support of their genre-defying new album, Ardor

Following the recent release of their critically-acclaimed sophomore LP Ardor, Montreal three-piece BIG|BRAVE have announced a midwest / east coast North American tour in support of the record. The band will tour from Canada down to Chicago before meeting up with legendary noise rockers UNSANE – check out the full tour routing listed below.

Out now on Southern Lord, Ardor features three songs that clock in for a 40-minute-long LP that is chock full of swirling static, booming guitars, powerful drums?all the hallmarks that have made them one of experimental rock?s most exciting acts today.

Since their formation in 2012, BIG|BRAVE demonstrate the fluidity of experimental rock when elaborated into vast, abstract, and often hypnotic sounds, saturated in soulbaring emotion. The trio put everything into their music, until there’s nothing left to give. Their particular art in musical refinement expands ever gradually, unfurling into a very heavy, strong, and elevating force. As comfortable as they are with tidal waves of sound, BIG|BRAVE is unafraid to experiment with silence, oscillating between sparse, gentle arrangements and deep swells of noise.

KOHTI TUHOA Begins East Coast North American Tour Now; Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta LP Nears Release Through Southern Lord

Helsinki, Finland’s KOHTI TUHOA have begun their maiden North American tour, preceding the November release of their second LP, Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta.

KOHTI TUHOA advances the release of the by-the-throat Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta album with their first North American tour which kicks off in in Philadelphia tonight. The band will then blasts through Washington, Richmond, Pittsburgh, New York City, Boston, Montreal, and ends Toronto through October 14th.


10/08/2017 VSC – Richmond, VA

10/09/2017 The Rock Room – Pittsburgh, PA

10/12/2017 Cafe Atomic – Montreal, QC

10/14/2017 Coalition – Toronto, ON

KOHTI TUHOA’s 2015-issued debut LP, Rutiinin Orja,was considered by many as the most exciting hardcore punk record out of Scandinavia in ages. Their sophomore album Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta is constructed from similar building blocks of aggression based at sociopolitical injustice, but with the band’s sound taking a step further towards genre classicists such as Discharge and Disorder, not to mention classic Finnish hardcore punk acts such as Terveet Kädet, Varaus, and Riistetyt. Recorded in May 2017 at V.R. Studio in Turku, Finland, Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta was engineered by Jussi Vuola, mixed by Jussi Vuola and KOHTI TUHOA, mastered and cut by Jukka Sarapää at Timmion Cutting, and finalized with artwork by returning artist Jaakko Karjula. The album crushes twelve relentless tracks in twenty minutes, including a cover of “Saatanan Lampaat” by Painajainen.

Stream KOHTI TUHOA’s “Kiire Läpi Elämän” and “Meille On Valehdeltu” from Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta and find digital pre orders HERE.

Southern Lord will issue Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta on LP and digital formats in North America on November 24th. Digital preorders are live HERE; stand by for physical pre order links. Svart Records is handling the album for Europe.
