Unearth Posts New Music Video “One With The Sun” Online

Boston metalcore outfit Unearth has posted a new music video online for the song, “One With The Sun.” You can check it out below. The song comes from the band’s new album, “Extinction(s)” which will be released through Century Media Records on November 23rd.

“We chose ‘One With The Sun’ as the first video off Extinction(s) because we feel it’s one of the hardest hitting tracks in our entire catalog. Musically it’s everything Unearth is about and lyrically it deals with the effects of climate change we are feeling today as well as the bleakness of our future unless we make drastic changes now. Tim Dennesen and the guys at Punchdance, inc did a great job capturing the imagery needed to get the message across. You’ll be sure to hear this one at our live shows as it’s already become a staple in our set. See you out there,” says frontman Trevor Phipps.

New Album “In Contact” Detailed By Caligula’s Horse

Caligula’s Horse, a band at the forefront of Australia’s progressive rock scene, has announced the release of the fourth studio album “In Contact,” which is set for release on September 15th via Inside Out Music. A teaser clip is available below.

As with the band’s acclaimed album “Bloom” before it, “In Contact” sees vocalist Jim Grey and lead guitarist Sam Vallen collaborating closely on the music and lyrics. Vallen comments: “In our creative process every idea is scrutinized, deconstructed, and rebuilt in a way that one of us, alone, could never achieve. We’re one another’s harshest critic, but fortunately we’ve done this for long enough now that our inspiration draws us in a similar direction – we can finish each other’s musical sentences, so to speak. And we’re lucky that’s the case, since ‘In Contact’ proved to be a much more ambitious undertaking than anything we’d conceived of in the past.”

Vocalist Jim Grey adds: “‘In Contact’ has been an enormous proposition – the stories told in this album feel deeply personal, and we’ve never been more excited to share a new work with the world. The sounds on this album are dark and adventurous – but without losing the bittersweet and joyful sounds we developed in writing Bloom.”

As with the band’s second album “The Tide, the Thief & River’s End,” the band decided to hang a concept around the entire record, taking it in a direction that would end up being the opposite of its predecessor. “We decided to create a concept album, but one that came from a more personal place: one that would facilitate our creative needs wherever the journey took us” Vallen continues. “The broader concept is based around the nature of art – of what it is that sparks creativity and inspiration, a celebration of what connects us as human beings, the shared space across our many differences.”

Taking in four separate chapters, each one is dedicated to an individual and their own personal journey and how they express themselves through art. “Each of these artists are reaching for something more in their lives, and while disconnected entirely from one another, they are united by that reach: for a better life, but also for something intangible.”

Written between late 2016 and May 2017, “In Contact” went through a rapid production/mixing/mastering process encompassing five weeks between May and June. The music felt fresh and the ideas were captured at the peak of their vitality. The music on ‘In Contact’ stretched all of the bands abilities, from the frantic speed and complexity of “Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run)” to the immense scope and variety of the 16-minute album closer, “Graves.” This is Caligula’s Horse at its most ambitious and progressive.

The full track-listing is as follows:

1. Dream the Dead
2. Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run)
3. The Hands are the Hardest
4. Love Conquers All
5. Songs for No One
6. Capulet
7. Fill My Heart
8. Inertia and the Weapon of the Wall
9. The Cannon’s Mouth
10. Graves

Angelus Apatrida Announces New Album “Hidden Evolution”

Spanish thrash band Angelus Apatrida is ready for a new attack and is currently finishing up the last details of an upcoming album coming out via Century Media Records.

The same creative staff that worked on the band’s previous two studio recordings, “Clockwork” (2010) and “The Call” (2012), has teamed up again for this new effort, entitled “Hidden Evolution.” The album was once again recorded in Moita, Portugal at Ultrasound Studio with producer Daniel Cardoso and will be released on January 19th in Europe and January 27th in North America (digital only).

Angelus Apatrida comments: “It’s been the hardest recording work we ever done, but we couldn’t be happier about how it sounds. Inspiration for the music in this album came from all the experiences we lived through on the road during the last two years and the result sounds more elaborated. There’s some of the hardest and fastest stuff we ever done, but also some of the more melodic stuff we ever composed.

“Working with Daniel and the people from Ultrasound Studios has been killer as usual. Moita is a small, cozy and quiet town close to Lisbon, and it’s been the third time we recorded there. Their narrow streets made of stone, the beautiful river and decadent squares feel like home; the perfect home for us, a place to get away from other things and fully concentrate.”

The album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Immortal
2. First World Of Terror
3. Architects
4. Tug Of War
5. Serpents On Parade
6. Wanderers Forever
7. End Man
8. Speed Of Light
9. I Owe You Nothing
10. Hidden Evolution
