Gama Bomb Posts New Lyric Video, “666teen” Online

Irish thrashers Gama Bomb have released a face-melting animated lyric video for new single “666teen.” The blistering track is the first single from the band’s sixth album Speed Between The Lines, out October 12th on AFM Records.

The album’s retro cover art is by New York-based artist Jarred Hageman AKA Chrome And Lightning and Rory McGuigan (Villagers), and the video also features scenes from 1950s public information movies.

The album was produced by longtime Gama Bomb collaborator Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth, Sylosis).
“The title just popped into my head one night,” explains singer Philly Byrne. “I’d been listening to a lot of 50s rock and doo-wop, songs like Sixteen Candles and Sweet Little Sixteen, and it just kinda morphed into this idea: what if somebody wrote a Satanic teen rebellion song?”
Bassist Joe McGuigan on Speed Between The Lines: “Our aim with this record was keep refining the GAMA BOMB thrash formula. It’s got faster and more punky riffing, battling axes and catchy, memorable choruses from Philly, who’s back with the Halford / Belladona notes after injuring his voice a few years back.”

The digital single’s cover is inspired by vintage paperback novels, featuring art from James Blish’s horror classic Black Easter.

“Speed Between The Lines,” released by AFM Records on October 12th 2018, is the sixth studio album from the band in 16 years. The album will be available as CD, clear yellow gatefold Vinyl (ltd. to 250 units), turquoise gatefold Vinyl (ltd. to 250 units), clear/red gatefold and vinyl red/black splatter (ltd. to 100 units) which is exclusively available in the AFM webshop.

Sicocis Goes “Beyond The Quantum Waves” With New Lyric Video

As was recently announced, Sicocis has scheduled February 24th as the release date for new album “Requiem of the World” via M-Theory Audio. Following that news comes new track “Beyond the Quantum Waves,” which can be heard below.

“’Beyond the Quantum Waves’ is our epic, melodic, sci-fi episode that combines great progressive elements with a dark cyber cloud hanging over it as you listen,” explains guitarist Rafael Ortega, who created the lyric video.

“It’s the contradictory lyrical concept about the atom and how scientists found this everlasting power for life and yet we used it to destroy, hence the atom bomb. Einstein knew that by using it as a weapon it would cause more pain and suffering as mankind knows its power only as a weapon and not for something that can progress life,” explains singer/guitarist Ernie Rodrigues. “We tried to bring that element of science and technology to the music, as well, mixing in synthetic sounds with organic orchestrations and choir fusing that progressive metal groove with a shred metal piece.”

Like what you hear below? You can catch Sicocis live on these upcoming U.S. shows in Nevada and California:

2/23 The Dive Bar – Las Vegas, NV
2/25 Loaded – Hollywood, CA
2/26 The Slidebar – Fullerton, CA

Eyes Set To Kill Releases New Album Recording Footage

In the time leading up to pre-production and the recording of forthcoming album “Masks,” Eyes Set To Kill decided to hunker down and demo two of the group’s strongest new songs, “True Colors” and “Nothing Left to Say.”

“Those two songs served as a blueprint for the entire record,” explains singer, songwriter, and guitarist Alexia Rodriguez. “When we were writing, I didn’t try to do what everybody else does. We didn’t need to throw a ton of riffs into one song or get overly technical. I wanted to make music that was catchy.”

With that mindset, the group retreated to a Southern California studio with producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura). Check out a sneak peek into the recording process below.

“Masks” will be in stores September 17th, 2013 through Century Media Records.
