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.

Polish epic black/death metal act Devilish Impressions premieres the pre-release full-album stream of the band’s forthcoming fourth album “The I”, which comes out on September 22 via Lifeforce Records.

Check out now “The I” in its entirety below.

States guitarist/vocalist Quazarre:

“We really wanted this new album to become something really special, thus we worked our asses off harder than ever before and pushed things back and forth to get the best out of it. As a result we’ve got something we are damn proud of, something we believe surpasses everything we’ve done in the past. Although Black and Death metal in its core, the album goes far beyond the boundaries of the genre and I truly believe it will make your hearts beat faster. So, lit up some candles, close your eyes and let it take you on a journey across those twisted visions of ours. It will grant you ascension to dark realms you might not want to come back from…”

Soul Demise Announces New Album “Thin Red Line”

Red is one of the most frequently used signal colors in science and in our everyday life. Soul Demise talks about a “Thin Red Line” with an impending new album and will for sure address something significant.

On previous album “Sindustry,” these five Germans showed that they are able to look beyond the boundaries of melodic death metal, and this time, they are getting even more ambitious.

Defying conventions, individual instruments were recorded in different studios. Drums were laid down with the help of Christoph Brandes in his Iguana Studios, Dennis Schneider guarded the tracking of the guitar and bass in Mainblast Studios, and the vocals were recorded at Rebound Studios under the watchful eyes of Simon Hammer.

In the end of the process, Tue Madsen in his Antfarm Studios handled mixing duties and succeeded in creating a very powerful sound, which represents all the strengths of the new material. The album’s musical statement is visualized with the artwork by Bjoern Gooßes from Killustrations.

“Thin Red Line“ will be released on May 19th, 2017 via Apostasy Records. The color to mark the date is obvious!

01. Plagued By Fear
02. Desperate Cry
03. Deceive The Masses
04. Empty
05. Live On The Edge
06. Frustration
07. T.R.L.O.S.
08. The Glow Of The Rich Man’s Friend
09. Purity Of Soul
10. Braindead
11. Hopeless Case
