Harm’s Way lands on Billboard charts with new album, ‘Posthuman’

– February 21st, 2018 –

Harm’s Way recently released their new album, Posthuman, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the Billboard charts! See below for all positions:

#10 Current Hard Music Albums
#10 Top New Artist Albums
#31 Top New Artist Albums Consumption
#38 Current Rock Albums
#89 Current Digital Albums
#120 Digital Albums
#123 Top Current Albums

To preview and purchase Posthuman, please visit:

Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman is a devastating addition to Harm’s Way‘s catalog. “We’ve always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences,” states drummer Chris Mills, while guitarist Bo Lueders succinctly sums up what people can expect when they first spin the record: “To a Harm’s Way fan, I would describe ‘Posthuman‘ as a blend of ‘Isolation‘(2011) and ‘Rust‘ (2015), but it’s sonically way more insane. To anyone else, I would simply say it’s full on heavy and full on aggression.”

L.A. based metal act Meytal, featuring YouTube celebrity Meytal Cohen on drums, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the group’s second studio album, tentatively due out coming summer. The band’s debut album, “Alchemy”, which was also funded on Kickstarter and released in summer 2015, was written by Cohen and Sahaj Ticotin, and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

Meytal Cohen has created over 120 YouTube clips since 2011, amassed 200 milion views and won over an audience of 1.2 million subscribers, producing drumming videos.

States Cohen:

“Transitioning from playing my favorite songs to writing my own songs has been the most humbling experience of my life. It has made me appreciate the hell out of bands that have inspired me to become a drummer. It has been an amazing learning experience. At the end of it, I can truly say I didn’t take any shortcuts, I gave it my best, and that it came out pretty badass.”

Black Label Society will release the tenth full length “Grimmest Hits” on January 19th via Entertainment One (eOne). The new effort will be the highly anticipated follow up to Billboard Top 5 charting titles “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” (2014) and “Order of the Black” (2010). In-between then and now, Zakk Wylde released “Book of Shadows II,” the long awaited follow up from his 1996 solo debut of the same name, which debuted at #18 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.

Wylde, now reunited with Ozzy Osbourne after an eight year break, has played a handful of dates with whom he refers to as “the boss,” with no signs of slowing down. The reunion kicked off over the summer with a highlighted performance at Chicago Open Air with high profile festivals like Louder Than Life and Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on deck to close out the year.

One part invading horde and all parts traveling carnival party, Black Label Society traverses the world powered by caffeine and cacophony. BLS engages and inspires audiences everywhere they go, on every radio dial they burn, inviting all comers to join in and participate in their brotherhood and sisterhood of hard rock and vigor.

Now ten studio albums deep, with solo records, Ozzy shows, and Zakk Sabbath tours all kicking ass simultaneously, Black Label Society rides ever forward, fist held high.

Mastodon Premieres New Audio/Visual Clip For “Streambreather”

Mastodon premieres a new audio/visual clip for “Streambreather”, taken from the band’s latest album “Emperor Of Sand”, which debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 album chart, making it the outfit’s third Top 10 album.

The video, created by Aaron Hymes, can be seen below.

Explains drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor:

“‘Emperor of sand’ is like the grim reaper. Sand represents time. If you or anyone you know has ever received a terminal diagnosis, the first thought is about time. Invariably, you ask, ‘How much time is left?'”.

Adds bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders:

“We’re reflecting on mortality. To that end, the album ties into our entire discography. It’s 17 years in the making, but it’s also a direct reaction to the last two years. We tend to draw inspiration from very real things in our lives.”

DragonForce enters Billboard charts for new album, ‘Reaching into Infinity’

– May 31st, 2017 –

International metal superstars DragonForce recently released their new album, Reaching Into Infinity, via Metal Blade Records in the USA; for their efforts, the band has now entered the Billboard charts! See below for all positions:

#5 Billboard Hard Music Albums
#12 Billboard Independent Albums
#16 Billboard Rock Albums
#48 Billboard Digital Albums
#58 Billboard Top 200 Current Albums
#70 Billboard Top 200

For their seventh studio album, DragonForce has opened up their sound like never before, capturing the fierce, forlorn and fun with both menace and melody. “I think we have proven that playing fast was something we were good at, so this time I wanted to bring even more diversity into our music,” Frederic Leclercq (bass) comments. “It’s great to challenge ourselves instead of staying in a comfort zone, and I really wanted to experiment with Marc’s vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality!” The first album to feature Gee Anzalone (drums), the Italian drummer has laid down an impressive performance to provide the perfect backbone to the DragonForce sound, which of course still boasts the band’s trademark insanely-fast solos, courtesy of guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman. Recording the bulk of the album at Fascination Street Studios, Sweden, with producer Jens Bogren, the band also laid down tracks while touring their Killer Elite “best of”-album, utilizing Lamerluser Studios, (London, UK), Dark Lane Studios (Witney, UK), as well as the band’s own Evil1 Studios in Charleville-Mezieres, France and Shredforce One Studios (CA, USA).
