Rise To Remain Announces "City Of Vultures" North American Release

Century Media Records has announced the release of Rise to Remain’s debut album, “City of Vultures,” in North American on October 11th. “I hope a lot of people will respect this record, especially coming from a really young band, because there’s a lot that’s outside the usual metalcore cliché thinking box,” says vocalist Austin Dickinson.

Rise to Remain has toured previously throughout Europe with Iron Maiden, Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine, and other notable acts, along with having played sets at this year’s Download and Sonisphere Festivals. The band will be heading stateside for a U.S. tour this fall around the release of “City of Vultures” and will back again in early 2012.

Evile Reveals New Album "Five Serpent’s Teeth" Track Listing

British thrashers Evile recently finished recording their forthcoming new album, “Five Serpent’s Teeth,” which is due to be released on September 26th. Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake comments on the track listing for the new album:

“Here’s the full track list for our new album, Five Serpent’s Teeth. There’s such diversity through this album that I simply can’t wait for people to hear these tracks. We spent a long time in the studio and at home figuring out the best order we could place these tracks in to flow perfectly through the album. The tracks go from the stomping heaviness of ‘Cult’, to the eeriness/melancholy of ‘In Memoriam’, to the pure insanity of ‘Descent Into Madness’. You may have already hear ‘Eternal Empire’ at earache.com/fst, and if you were at Download festival last weekend and you came to see us, you heard ‘Cult’.”

The track listing is as follows:

1. Five Serpent’s Teeth
2. In Dreams of Terror
3. Cult
4. Eternal Empire
5. Xaraya
6. Origin of Oblivion
7. Centurion
8. In Memoriam
9. Descent Into Madness
10. Long Live New Flesh

Evile also recently posted the new song “Eternal Empire” online. You can find details on the track at this location.
