Shadow Of Doubt Posts “No Mercy” Title Track

“No Mercy,” the debut EP by Texas hardcore outfit Shadow Of Doubt – founded by former core members of Bitter End, Hardside, and more – is approaching early June release through War Records, and today the title track has been issued.

The four-song EP was recorded in November 2016 by Phillip Odom (Ivy League) at Bad Wolf Studios, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Power Trip, Nails). Offers Shadow Of Doubt guitarist Patrick Flanigan on the new track:

“I came up with the intro to ‘No Mercy’ first. There is a cool key change in the riff which I love doing, especially with heavy music. ‘No Mercy’ never really lets up. It stays hard hitting the whole time which I think makes it the strongest song on the EP. The song is very thrash influenced but with a lot of New York hardcore style to it, which really showcases our musical direction.

“The lyrics are about how we seem to be going backwards instead of progressing, and all of the consequences that come with that. I wrote the song right after the election so I was pretty pissed at the time. The theme of this EP and the title track is that you will get no mercy from this unrelenting world.”

Don Jamieson launches new track, “Weed, Cigs, Election 2016″, online

– April 17th, 2017 –

On Friday (April 21st), former “That Metal Show” host and comedian Don Jamieson will release his new comedy album, Communication Breakdown, via Metal Blade Records. Recorded at The Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Communication Breakdown‘s title and cover come from Don‘s Rutgers University senior yearbook photo. Don explains: “My young nieces and nephews found the photo at my mom’s house and starting texting me how funny it was, and when I saw it again after so many years, I agreed! I majored in communication, so it was just a matter of adding the ‘Breakdown’ to it, which is obviously something you never want to happen in comedy.” For a preview of Communication Breakdown, the track “Weed, Cigs, Election 2016″ can be heard at: metalblade.com/donjamieson – where the album can also be pre-ordered, and the previously released track, “Kiefer”, can be streamed.

Communication Breakdown track-listing:
01. Dave Mustaine Riffs, Intervention, Baby in the Drain
02. Sober, Finger-Banging, Drunk Logic
03. Weed, Cigs, Election 2016
04. Kiefer
05. Myrtle Beach
06. Free Clinic, Raccoons
07. Rockers Aren’t P.C.
08. Where Have All the Rock Stars Gone?
09. Rocking Women, Viking Metal, Big Four
10. Vagina No-No’s, Van Fucker, Doggie Style
11. Dating at 50, Threesome (Almost)
12. Brad & Angelina, Great Head, Mr. Brownstone
13. Johnny Depp

Named one of the top 10 metalhead comedians by Revolver Magazine, Don has captured some of his most irreverent work to-date on his third album, Communication Breakdown. Don explains: “This album has tons of jokes but really revolves around 4 or 5 longer stories, which is something I’ve never really done before. I usually just like shot gunning jokes like beers at a frat party, but this time around I tried something a little different. It took a while to develop them for the stage but am really happy with the way they turned out, particularly the track ‘Kiefer’, which is a true story about a crazy night with the ’24′ actor.
Other than that, there’s a little bit of something for everyone on this disc, and I hope people who buy or steal it enjoy it as much as I do.”

Incontinence Announces “Prey For Us” Album Release

Spearheaded by four New York death metal veterans – involved in venerable acts such as Skinless, Held Under, Armor Column, Dry Heave and Burial – the appealingly named Incontinence proudly reveal details for the release of debut album, “Prey For Us.”

Scheduled for release on May 15th, 2017 via Ultimate Massacre Productions, Incontinence came up with a record intent on bringing brutality to the metal-minded masses, within a package of strong tracks that hook the listener in and don’t let go.

As a taste of what’s the come, the band just unleashed a track from the album entitled “Cryptofascist” – check it out below.

“The biggest underlying theme of the album is being under control, losing control and misery in lower-to-middle-class America,” comments the band. “For example, ‘Capitalist Martyr’ deals with a lower-level employee of a large corporation being shamed and forced into working longer hours. ‘Phantom Heart,’ ‘The Outrage Machine’ and ‘Inner Psychopath (Believe the Lie)’ all tie into the theme of being under control, being manipulated and losing one’s mind.”

The band goes on to state, “Elsewhere, ‘Escape to the Slaughter’ is a song loosely about a real-life event in which a herd of bison escaped from a buffalo meat farm just south of the Capital Region. They eventually got cornered and slaughtered by marksmen. This was written from the perspective of the bison herd. ‘Cryptofascist’ is without question about the rise of Trumpism/nationalism in the USA, but you could also apply it to other parts of the globe, as nationalism has seemingly become trendy. The song was written in the middle of the ridiculous US presidential campaign, prior to the election, and was never meant to be a prophecy. Several of the songs on the album were written structurally in the vein of what Chuck Shuldinder did on the last four Death albums as well as on the ‘Control Denied’ album. Death was a big time influence on ‘Prey For Us.'”

1. Inner Psychopath
2. The Outrage Machine
3. Capitalist Martyr
4. Phantom Heart
5. Cryptofascist
6. Escape To The Slaughter
7. Prey For Us
8. All That Never Was & All That Will Never Be

Stray From The Path Debuts New Song & Music Video “The House Always Wins”

Stray From The Path premieres a new song entitled “The House Always Wins”, taken from the band’s upcoming new album, due out next year on Sumerian Records.

Check out now “The House Always Wins” below.

States the band:

“It almost seems that this election was begging for us to take a swing at it. We watched Trump bid for the Republican candidacy against people like Cruz and Christie….we watched Hillary actually steal the Democratic candidacy from a guy who was drawing millions of people around the country, and funding his campaign off of millions of donations averaging at $27, from real people…while Hillary was drawing crowds of less people than Stray From The Path can draw at a random show in Tennessee?
It was wrong. These two candidates are wrong. A two party program is wrong. We have a circus going on while Native Americans at the Dakota Access Pipeline are victims of terrorism at the hands of the oil companies that purchase this election. Not a word about it from anybody. No help.
This band has always been an outlet for our frustrations with this planet, and we couldn’t wait for our next full length to get this one out. There are people who feel the same way as us, and I hope this song can open some minds up about the people they look to as leaders…ask themselves…do they actually give a shit about my life? Or would they sell me out in a second to further their agenda. The answers are not always pretty, and sometimes hard to accept…but in the end of the day, The House Always Wins.
In the studio Feb 2017 with Will Putney. New album is on the way.”

Darkthrone’s Fenriz Elected To Public Office… Against His Will

The Norwegian duo of Darkthrone will release “Arctic Thunder” on October 14th via Peaceville Records. While the infamous Fenriz has been doing interviews about the release, it recently came out that he became a city council member… against his will!

Despite campaigning on a “please don’t elect me” platform (check out the official campaign poster below), Fenriz was voted in anyway. He discussed his unwanted political post in an interview with Clvrynt.com, which also extensively discusses “Arctic Thunder.” Excerpts follow.

Clrvynt: What is life like in Kolbotn these days?

Fenriz: Nowadays, I’m the neighbor that really takes care of the lawn. But now I’m in the local papers because I got voted in as a politician — involuntarily, I might add. So, I’ve got some support, I guess. But Kolbotn is a tiny place, maybe 9,000 people.

Clrvynt: You got voted in involuntarily? Couldn’t you just decline the position?

Fenriz: No, if you get voted in, you have to stay in that position for four years. And then you can pull out. But I’m used to these sort of long-term commitments. [Laughs] Basically, they called and asked if I wanted to be on the list [of backup representatives]. I said yeah, thinking I would be like 18th on the list and I wouldn’t really have to do anything. They just need a list to be able to … well, it’s hard to talk local politics in another language. My campaign was a picture of me holding my cat saying, “Please don’t vote for me.” But people just went nuts. After the election, the boss called me and told me I was a representative. I wasn’t too pleased, and I’m not too pleased about it. It’s boring. There’s not a lot of money in that, either, I can tell you!

Clrvynt: So, you’re on the town council, basically.

Yep, that’s it. I’m a local politician. But Norway is very small, so when you’re a local politician, you’re local, man. [Laughs] I’m a pillar of my community.
