Stick To Your Guns Releases “Married To The Noise” Video

Stick To Your Guns just dropped the video for “Married to the Noise,” an anthemic yet melodic, fist-pumping new track. The song lives on upcoming album “True View,” due out October 13th via Pure Noise.

Vocalist Jesse Barnett told Loudwire, “The older I get, the more I’m met with ‘Oh wow, you still do that?’ or ‘LOL, you still listen to that?’ Every time, my answer is, ‘Fuck yes.’ This scene was never a phase for me. Through every amazing and horrible thing that has happened in my life, this music has been by my side. I’m so grateful to this music, for the people it brought into my life, the places it has taken me, and for the ethics that have shaped me. This may have been a passing phase for some people, but for me there was no other choice.”

Stick to Your Guns will launch a coast-to-coast live assault, playing four shows on the East Coast and four shows on the West Coast. Three of the eight shows will also take place in Canada. Afterwords, STYG is confirmed for a winter 2018 tour with Architects (UK) and Counterparts.

Hideous Rebirth Posts “Desecration Seance” Lyric Video

Barbaric death-grinders Hideous Rebirth just premiered lyric video single “Desecration Seance,” taken from the group’s forthcoming album, “La Fosa Comun.”

“It’s about disgruntled spirits,” states bassist/vocalist Cris Gutierrez, “luring us into their realm in order to take over our physical bodies and take their revenge on humanity. ‘La Fosa Común” is a burial ground of unidentified people’s who never really rested properly, so this ties into the album perfectly. Lyrics mixed with rituals, spirits, and brutality make a good fit for Hideous Rebirth.”

New album “La Fosa Comun” is set for release October 27th, 2017 via Gore House Productions on CD and digital formats. Pre-orders are online here.

Wolves In The Throne Room Posts New Song “Mother Owl, Father Ocean”

We are now a mere weeks away from the release of the sixth Wolves In The Throne Room LP “Thrice Woven,” and today another track from the 5-track collection has been revealed. “Mother Owl, Father Ocean” offers a lull from the album’s Cascadian black metal lean thanks to a lush wall of ambient noise and gauzy vocals from Norwegian singer Anna von Hausswolff.

The band comments: “Making music with Anna Von Hausswolff was a true gift. When I close my eyes and listen to Anna’s Voice I see the cold grey oceans of the north. It reminds me of the saltwater near my beloved home, and the cold oceans everywhere. Hail to the Icy Waters of this Earth! Hail Anna!”

New album “Thrice Woven” will be released on September 22nd via the band’s own label, Artemisia Records. Catch Wolves In The Throne Room on the road in North America with Pillorian this fall:

Good Tiger reveals details for new album, ‘We Will All Be Gone’

– September 6th, 2017 –

Launches first single, “The Devil Thinks I’m Sinking”, online

On February 9th, Good Tiger will release their sophomore full-length, We Will All Be Gone, via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. For a preview of the album, the first single, “The Devil Thinks I’m Sinking”, can be heard at: metalblade.com/goodtiger – where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–Digipak CD
–180g Black Vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 500 copies)
–Flesh Pink Clear Vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–Opaque Pale Pink Vinyl (USA exclusive – limited to 500 copies)

With music instantly accessed at the touch of a button, it seems that the urge to pigeonhole bands as quickly and neatly as possible has been driven to ever more extremes in recent years. Good Tiger, however, forge their own path. Blending their influences in a manner that defies lazy classification sets them apart from their contemporaries, imbuing everything they do with a distinctive sound and feel, and with We Will All Be Gone, Good Tiger have dramatically built upon their stunning debut, 2015′s A Head Full Of Moonlight. Comprised of guitarists Derya “Dez” Nagle and Joaquin Ardiles, bassist Morgan Sinclair, drummer Alex Rudinger and vocalist Elliot Coleman, Good Tiger has raised the stakes across the board – every track on We Will All Be Gone has a definitive character of its own, and none stay in a single gear, all of them dynamic and textured as they evoke various tones and moods. Tracking at Middle Farm Studios in southwest England, the band also recruited producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool/Dead Letter Circus), and engineer/mixer Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery/Animals As Leaders). “We worked with Nolly on the last album, we had a great working relationship, and wanted to explore that further in a more developed situation,” Dez explains. “Forrester has made some of our favorite albums, and is someone we could trust steering the ship. Having self-produced for so long it can be at times quite difficult to let go, so it was important we found people we could fully entrust to help create the album we wanted to make.”

P.O.D. Debuts New Track “Soundboy Killa” – Revised Tour Dates Announced

Grammy-nominated SoCal outfit P.O.D. has dropped a new track titled “Soundboy Killa”. You can hear the song below. Says frontman Sonny Sandoval of it:

“Rock ‘n roll has become entertainment that just says what the consumer wants to hear. There’s no more edge or rebellion that sets it apart from the norm. We choose to be us and write songs that we love playing rather than trying to keep up with trends or what’s hot on the scene. Lyrically, it’s a take off some of the old hip hop and reggae classics that I love. ‘Soundboy Killa‘ is classic P.O.D. guitar riff power, headbanging groove with the lyrical attitude and edge missing in today’s music.”

P.O.D. will be out on the “The Soundboy Killaz Tour” with Alien Ant Farm, Powerflo and Fire From The Gods this fall. Dates can be found below:

09/06 Halethorpe, MD – Fish Head Cantina
09/07 New York, NY – Gramercy Theater
09/08 Williamsburg, VA – DeVault Vineyards
09/09 Stanhope, NJ – Stanhope House
09/10 Harrisburg, PA – The Capitol Room

GWAR Announces North American Fall Tour

– August 15th, 2017 –

New Album “The Blood of Gods” Out October 20th via Metal Blade Records

On October 20th, GWAR will release a new studio album entitled “The Blood of Gods” via Metal Blade Records. In support of the new album, your Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural (and anal) devastation across North America. Joining in the chaos will be Ghoul, Doyle (10/20-11/5), He Is Legend (11/7-12/10) and U.S. Bastards. The tour kicks off in Richmond, VA on October 20th and runs through December 10th in Detroit, MI. The tour includes a stop in New York City on Halloween as well! A complete list of dates can be found below.

The Berserker Blothar had this to say about the upcoming tour:
Humans, we are coming to tear your world apart with a live performance the likes of which has never been seen on this or any other planet! This album, “The Blood of Gods,” is the greatest thing since French toast. Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels. Now, we are taking the whole bloody shit show on the road, with the most spectacular, blood-drenched, gruesome, and terrifying rock concert of all time. Don’t miss your chance to sacrifice yourself to GWAR at a venue near you!

Bohabs! Be the coolest corpse in the pile! Don’t miss your chance to pledge your allegiance to GWAR each night when they rape and pillage your town. Head to gwarvip.com to take part in “The Lords and Masters VIP Experience“.

General admission tickets and VIP Packages go on sale to the public this Friday August 18th at 10:00 AM Eastern.

The Lords and Masters VIP Experience Includes:
• One (1) General Admission Ticket with Venue Early Entry (potentially guest list)
• Exclusive access to GWAR soundcheck where you will pledge allegiance to your Lords & Masters!
• Invitation to play a GWAR instrument onstage at soundcheck
• Tour of the weapons of your Lords & Masters
• Crowd Free Merch Access
• One (1) Souvenir item signed by members of GWAR
• One (1) Souvenir GWAR laminate
• Photo opportunity with GWAR before the show
• You will be killed by GWAR on stage during the show
• Designated Slave Pit Area to pledge your allegiance before you are killed on stage by GWAR!

There are only 5 VIP TICKETS available per show, that’s it so don’t wait.

Concerning the album: “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry. Meanwhile, Sleazy P. Martini, the crooked entrepreneur who discovered the Scumdogs, and has always envisioned them as a sort of horrific boy band, finally managed to convince the group to write a hit song called “I’ll Be Your Monster.” If all goes according to plan, it may be just stupid enough to work!

Primitive Race Unveils New Album “Soul Pretender”

Primitive Race — the hard rock/industrial hybrid helmed by Chris Kniker with core members Mark Gemini Thwaite (The Mission UK/Peter Murphy) and Erie Loch (Wiccid/Luxt) — will release sophomore album “Soul Pretender” on November 3rd via Metropolis Records.

As was the case with the band’s debut, Kniker brought on a group of guest musicians into the Primitive Race fold, with the full album featuring vocals by former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley and drums by the Melvins’ Dale Crover.

The album was produced by the band’s core trio, with Kniker recruiting Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More/Sepultura) for mastering, Toshi Kasai (Melvins/Helmet) for engineering, and Joe Haze (tweaker/PIG) for mixing.

“Musically, ‘Soul Pretender’ was a natural progression from the first album,” explains Kniker. “To have Chuck and Dale involved was perfect! They really brought a new vision to the project. Their style is a perfect match with Mark, Erie and myself. This record is more focused and organic. I wanted more of an alternative rock record. Stripped down. Live real drums. There’s space in the record. I didn’t want some overly polished ‘perfect’ record.”

Haken Releases “Lapse” Music Video

Haken is set to hit the road in North America later this month for the band’s 10th anniversary tour. In advance of that trek, the band just released a brand new psychedelic and sci-fi animated video for the track “Lapse,” taken from last year’s “Affinity” (reviewed here) and created by Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight.

The band comments: “Lapse was one of the first tracks we wrote for Affinity. Now more than a year since the album’s release, it’s great to finally give this song a chance to stand out on its own, as it’s one of our favorites!

“Visually, we wanted to maintain a consistency with our videos for ‘Initiate,’ ‘Earthrise,’ and ‘The Endless Knot,’ so we returned to Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight to complete the series. The video incorporates a 3D motion capture technique (previously used on Frost*’s ‘Numbers’ video) to tie in with Affinity’s themes of artificial intelligence/consciousness.”
