Speaking of the new track, frontman Connor Gerritty comments:

“We are very excited to finally get one of our heaviest songs out there to the masses! ‘The Nuclear Dust‘ is a freight train and we hope you all are are ready for this storm. It comes off our new album ‘Highway Crosses‘, which will be backed by tons of world touring. Now its time to get out there and feed this beast!”

About the new outing itself:

“Our third record, ‘Highway Crosses‘, has seen the band evolve as artists and individuals. We are still keeping the heavy groovy sound that you are all familiar with, but also stretching our boundaries to try new things. It’s the old school Yeti sound (heavy, fast verses and killer hooks), and we spent a lot of time making sure we picked the right songs hoping not to alienate any of our die-hard fans. The weapons are drawn and we are ready for war!!”

Byzantine launches new video for “The Cicada Tree”

– September 19th, 2018 –

After releasing their latest album, The Cicada Tree, last year to critical acclaim, Byzantine is now launching a new video for the record’s title track! Directed by Holly Mollohan / Screaming Butterfly Entertainment, the clip for “The Cicada Tree” can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=EbWXmBWlPqg

Vocalist/Guitarist Chris “OJ” Ojeda comments:
“Over the course of our last few albums, we have really been trying to stretch our songwriting abilities and push past any limitations set upon ourselves. The title track, ‘The Cicada Tree’, is a great representation of our band at this point in our discography. We try to always write from the heart and with purpose. This song has one of the deeper meanings on our last album, symbolizing our 17 years as a band and our slow but steady evolution as an underground artist.”

To state that The Cicada Tree is “classic Byzantine” in no way implies that this is an album solely rooted in the band’s past. Certainly, all of the hallmarks that have made their sound so compelling for close to two decades are present and correct: muscular yet lithe riffs and fluid leads play against gripping, dynamic and at times unpredictable rhythms, while rich melodies and lyrics that are both involved and intelligent wind their way through every track. But, once more, the groove metal unit has continued their steady evolution – the interplay between their members organic and natural, imbuing the record’s sixty-two-minute running time with a freshness and urgency. Founding member Chris “OJ” Ojeda states, “The first few albums, you’re trying to find your sound, and sometimes you tend to not see the forest for the trees. Now, on album number six, it seems a calmness took hold during the songwriting process, possibly from just having more confidence in our sound. At this point, our fans expect us to experiment and push our boundaries, which is an extremely liberating feeling.”

Ara Premiere New Song “Cytokine Storm” From Upcoming New Album “Judisprudence”

Wisconsin based, death metal outfit Ara have signed with Lavadome productions for the release of it’s sophomore album “Judisprudence”. The album was recorded at Howl Street Studios and mastered by Leon Macey of death metal powerhouse Mithras. “Jurisprudence” will be released early next year. In the meantime, you can already stream the third track of the album “Cytokine Storm” streaming below:

The band’s guitarist, Jerry Haupa, issued following statement with regards to the revealed track:

“Cytokine Storm represents the most focused attack of the band on the record thematically, while still challenging the listener and the boundaries of the death metal approach in general. The lyrical theme is about how the body self-destructs during the final stages of infection from Ebola, so the music takes on a viral approach as though the listener is bombarded with inhibiting structures, eventually succumbing to fatal illness while paralyzed by confusion and despair.”

Revocation Premiere New Music Video “Of Unworldly Origin” & Detail Upcoming New Album “The Outer Ones”

Revocation premiere a new music video for their new track “Of Unworldly Origin” below. That song opens the group’s upcoming new effort “The Outer Ones“, which Metal Blade have planned for a September 28th release date.

Comments vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson of the release:

“I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date. Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries. The songs came together pretty naturally, however, this album has the most revisions to riffs and song structures that we’ve ever had. I had a lot of material written, and had a good amount of time to work on it between tours, so I used that time to really dissect every part of each song. I might be feeling one riff one day and then the next day have some sort of revelation and would go in a totally different direction. All of those revisions definitely benefitted the final product.”

Track list:

01 – “Of Unworldly Origin”
02 – “That Which Consumes All Things”
03 – “Blood Atonement”
04 – “Fathomless Catacombs”
05 – “The Outer Ones”
06 – “Vanitas”
07 – “Ex Nihilo”
08 – “Luciferous”
09 – “A Starless Darkness”

Warbringer To Play “Waking Into Nightmares” Album In Full At 3 April Live Shows

In celebration of their 2009 album “Waking Into Nightmares” Warbringer will play a trio of special shows in April. Comments the band’s vocalist John Kevill:

“This year we will be writing new material, but that doesn’t mean the live war machine will stop rolling… in addition to our Japanese ‘Thrash Domination‘ festivals with Testament and Exodus, we are pleased to announce a small run of West coast shows in April of 2018. Since we have been playing ‘Woe to the Vanquished‘ in its entirety this last year, to great response, we decided we liked the full album format live.

It is really cool being able to deliver the whole of a record, front to back, in a live setting, and so on these limited April dates we will be doing that with a fan favorite from our back catalogue… ‘Waking into Nightmares‘.”

“We will play the full record live as both a treat for fans as well as a tribute to Nic Ritter, who passed away in 2017. That record pushed the boundaries forward for Warbringer and we look forward to punishing everyone with it live this coming April. See you in the pit.”

The live performances will take place on the following dates:

04/27 Los Angeles, CA – The Whisky
04/28 Santa Ana, CA – Malone’s
04/29 San Diego, CA – Brick By Brick

New Single “Capitalism” Posted By The Complex Dialect, Debut Album Details Posted

Seattle 8-piece progressive outfit The Complex Dialect is thrilled to announce the official details for the debut album “Change,” which has been set for December 1, 2017. The first single “Capitalism” is available in the player below.

Produced at Seattle’s infamous London Bridge Studios by Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius, Surfer Blood) and mastered by Ed Brooks (Fleet Foxes, Death Cab for Cutie, Pearl Jam), Change is a representation of both “problem” and “solution” perspectives when engaging with the ever-changing world we deal with in present time.

The Complex Dialect is a collective of musicians from Seattle, Washington, bound together by a need for growth and true expression. Formed by Earnie Ashwood (Guitar), Lola Campbell (Vocals), Bobby McGranahan (Bass), Gibraltar (Guitar), Craig Cinderich (Keys), Adam Cignatta (Vocals), Oz La’brae (Drums), and Deadmics (MC/Vocals), the 8-piece outfit reflects our tumultuous societal climate by pushing the boundaries of time signatures and thriving within atypical progressions. The Complex Dialect’s songs focus on the subject matter of uncomfortable truths as they use the platform to process how the members feel, creating an interwoven conversation of ideas and reactions through their music. The Complex Dialect aims to encourage anyone who is struggling: “We look for non-conventional solutions to conventional problems. We strive to be the change we want to see in the world.”

On “Capitalism” guitarist Earnie Ashwood describes: “‘Capitalism’ is about living in an economically unforgiving society that is controlled by corporations and the top 1%. The song calls out the external conditioning that creates said economic state while at the same time draws attention to the personal decisions we make that contributes to our own social economic oppression. The brands we buy, how we spend our currency (the most important currency being time), and how we constantly have our financial status on our minds are large contributors towards a system that strips away many of the qualities that make up our very humanity. The song is about taking a step outside of oneself and challenging the personal ignorance of the unwilling contributions one makes to their own personal subjugation.”

On the release of Change, he further states: “Words will never be able to express what it means to us to be able to complete and share this album. From the beginning it has been our goal to provide a realistic perspective of where the world stands, and to provide connection and comfort in knowing that we all are not alone in facing challenging issues. It is our sincere hope that this album brings a sense of collective bonding, while providing a safe space for inner reflection and true personal change.”

The track list for “Change” is:

1. Radar
2. No Man’s Land
3. Rude
4. Fall
5. Capitalism
6. One Constellation
7. Looking For A Friend For The End Of The World
8. Change
9. Anything

Debut Album “Archaic Malevolence” Detailed By Infected Dead

From the rotten shores of the River Medway in Kent, Infected Dead has emerged to reveal details of the debut record “Archaic Malevolence,” which set for release December 8th via Hostile Media.

Six tracks of visceral death metal, brutal, catchy, influenced by subgenre leaders Aborted and The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as a love of the occult and Lovecraftian cosmic horror. The 5-piece has honed a razor-sharp sound, underlined by a trademark breakneck speed and intense live shows, which has been quickly turning heads in the U.K. underground. Pre-orders are available at this location.

Guitarist Alex Brown comments, “We are delighted to announce our union with Hostile Media for the release of our first offering. This year has been great for us and we’d like to thank them for their faith in what we do and for helping us step up to the next level. From the start of the writing process for ‘Archaic Malevolence’ it was always our intention to push ourselves. We wanted to enter uncharted territory and push the boundaries of what we could do technically and creatively. Inspired by modern day juggernauts such as Aborted, The Faceless, Nile and countless others we feel this release is the perfect balance of unrestrained brutality, infectious hooks and sinister melody from the grandiose title track to the crushing weight of ‘Invocation Of Unspeakable Gods’ this release was designed to grab you.”

“Archaic Malevolence” was produced, mixed and mastered by Wynter Prior, while Luciferium War Graphics was responsible for the epic artwork shown below.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Book Of Dead Names
2. Archaic Malevolence
3. Resurrectionist
4. Invocation Of Unspeakable Gods
5. Forced Existence
6. Samsara

Remixed, A Capella Version Of “Pictures” Streaming From Disparager

Disparager will kick off the “Sayonara Summer Tour” beginning tomorrow October 3rd in Brooklyn, NY with a special show alongside 36 Crazyfists. In conjunction with the tour starting, Disparager has teamed up with Metal Sucks for an exclusive premiere of the remixed, acapella version of their song “Pictures (REMIX).” Check out the exclusive premiere over at this location, or simply stay right here and check it out at the bottom of this article.

On releasing “Pictures (REMIX),” AhKao says, “The EP version of ‘Pictures’ is pretty much a blaster with loud drums, heavy bass and guitar distortion, odd time signatures, and screams. So it was crazy fun to do a stripped down, nearly-entirely a cappella version. I think like it really brings out the chord qualities and gives the lyrics new emotional depth. Also, we’re hoping the track will draw attention to our upcoming tour. The bookers, clubs, and other bands have been working hard to make this happen for us, and the Disparager boys and I are truly grateful.”

Following tomorrow’s show, Disparager will play shows alongside Genosha, Your Chance to Die, and Set and Setting. The tour runs through October 19th in Atlanta, GA. The full itinerary can be seen below.

After a line up change and nearly three years of blood, sweat, and tears, Disparager is as brutal and hypnotic as metal can be. The band has always been an extension of frontman Chris AhKao regaining his life from personal demons, but the guys’ live set has become unreal. Witness some of the darkest, most soul crushing, punishing vortex of anguish humankind is capable of… when you catch Desparager on tour… if you dare.

Recorded with producer Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, H2O, American Nightmare, Polar Bear Club), Timeless, Ageless is bursting with dense rawness and precision while pushing the boundaries of metal with tracks like “At Least I Still Have Bon Iver” – half folk song, half crushing mix of Isis and Slayer – and “Pictures” – a time signature mindfuck the band is proud NOT to call prog rock.
