Child Bite Gearing Up For Tour Dates With Syk

Housecore Records recording artists Child Bite and Syk will join forces later this week for a European live takeover. The journey will commence on July 21st in Milano, Italy, and rampage its way through nineteen cities, concluding August 12th in Plzen, Czech Republic.

The trek will mark the final performances for both Child Bite guitarist Brandon Sczomak and drummer Jeff Kraus, who joined the band in 2010 and 2014 respectively. Child Bite’s remaining tours for the year will feature guitarist Jeremy Waun from Detroit-based experimental punk metallers Reverend and previous Child Bite drummer Ben Moore, who played with the band from 2011 to 2013.

Comments frontman Shawn Knight, “It has been four years since our first European tour, so we are plenty ready to get back over there and freak some people out. [Housecore Records head, Philip] Anselmo introduced us to the music of Syk a year or two back and we were immediately intrigued. Both bands are kind of misfits so I believe we’ll get along just fine! Like a monstrous, eight-headed peanut butter and jelly sandwich wreaking havoc across the land…”

Debut Self-Titled Album From Bigfoot Expected This Fall

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the self-titled debut of one of the latest U.K. signings – Bigfoot. The album will be released October 13th.

Bigfoot is a hard rock band from Wigan who burst onto the scene in the spring of 2014. With a wide range of influences from The Eagles through to Pantera, the group boasts the powerful vocals of Antony Ellis, dual lead guitars from Sam Millar and Mick McCullagh, plus the thunderous rhythm section of bassist Matt Avery and drummer Tom Aspinall.

Order the debut album at this location or digitally through iTunes or Google Play. Digital pre-orders come with an instant download of the new song “The Fear,” the video clip of which you can see in the player below.

“The Fear” was written shortly after the release of the second EP. Sam Millar describes it as
“a song about the fear in our heads and how it can consume your whole life and take over”, while musically Mick McCullagh states that “it is a Jekyll and Hyde type affair. There’s the gnarly, in your face heavy rock guitar side of it, then the melodic, anthemic side with big uplifting vocals. It’s very dynamic, which adds to the tension we were aiming for.”

The video for “The Fear” was shot by Shane Green at The Giffard in Wolverhampton.
Tom Aspinall says “we had played there a month or so before and thought the stage would be perfect for the shots we wanted with the idea of it being quite dark and frantic. We’ve worked with Shane in the past and knew he would deliver a fast paced and exciting video.”

Having toured constantly around the UK and performed at festivals including Breakout, Bloodstock, Hard Rock Hell, Steelhouse and more, the quintet have built themselves a loyal grassroots following in home territory. Two successful self-released EP’s also drew the attention of the Naples based rock powerhouse Frontiers Music Srl, who signed them to their roster as fast as it could.

The self-titled debut album was co-produced by the band with Justin Richards (who also mixed the record), it consists of eleven songs. The artwork and track listing are as follows:

1. Karma
2. The Fear
3. Tell Me A Lie
4. Forever Alone
5. Eat Your Words
6. Prisoner Of War
7. Freak Show
8. I Dare You
9. The Devil In Me
10. Uninvited
11. Yours

Check out “The Fear” here:

This Bigfoot is no myth, but they are about to become legends.

Upcoming UK shows:
25.08.17 HULL Hair Metal Heaven
14.10.17 MANCHESTER Sound Control (album launch event)
11.11.17 SHEFFIELD Corporation (with Tyketto)
25.11.17 EDINBURGH La Belle Angele (with Tyketto)

Video Clip For New Song “The World Is Yours” Issued By Arch Enemy

Arch Enemy fired off the first single from “Will To Power” in the form of the music video for “The World Is Yours.” Check it out in the player below.

The highly anticipated follow up to “War Eternal” is finally ready to be unleashed on September 8th via Century Media Records.

Mastermind Michael Amott comments, “We’ve been hard at work on the new album for a while now and we’re proud to present the first taste of new Arch Enemy music in over three years with our new single and video, ‘The World Is Yours’! This was the first song I wrote for the upcoming ‘Will To Power’ album and Daniel (Erlandsson, drums) helped me arrange and finish it up. One of many songs we co-wrote and co-produced this time around. We had a blast recording together with the full band in the south of Sweden and then mixing with Jens Bogren, who did a superb mix and mastering – in my opinion even surpassing the epic sound on our previous record, ‘War Eternal’. People that have heard this song in particular are saying it’s got the classic anthemic Arch Enemy vibe going on, and I think they might be right about that… Looking forward to playing it live on stage later this summer!”

The track list for the album is:

1. Set Flame to the Night
2. The Race
3. Blood in the Water
4. The World is Yours
5. The Eagle Flies Alone
6. Reason to Believe
7. Murder Scene
8. First Day in Hell
9. Saturnine
10. Dreams of Retribution
11. My Shadow and I
12. A Fight I Must Win

New Album Recordings Underway As Graveshadow Enteres Studio

Recently completing a west coast run of shows with Russia’s Arkona and Norway’s Sirenia, Sacramento’s Graveshadow – a male-backed symphonic metal band that incorporates doom, thrash and Goth metal influences – has entered the studio to begin recording the sophomore album and debut for M-Theory Audio.

The band settled into The Captains Quarters in Ventura, California with producer (and Night Demon guitarist) Armand John Anthony.

“The idea came to record with Armand while we were on tour with Night Demon. I got to talking with him and he showed me some of his production work,” explains Graveshadow guitarist Will Walker. “What we really want to accomplish on this album is more of a raw and organic sound while still maintaining the symphonic elements of the music. It was a natural fit. The gear, the room, everything is working out to realize exactly what we were looking for. Armand is an absolute joy to work with and we feel he’s really helping us make this the best it can be.”

Recording will continue over the month of July with plans to release in early 2018 via the new deal with M-Theory Audio. Stay tuned for updates.

Were I Blind Releases Self-Titled Video

Combining the party elements of electronic music with energetic and chaotic riffs, London-based electro / industrial metal outfit Were I Blind is about to bounce into the scene with a self-titled EP.

The band was formed around drummer/songwriter OC Preciado (Breed 77, Reverted), Alberto Marin (Def Con Dos, Hamlet, Kaothic) and Andrew Trewin (Collisions, Magna Carta) and will reveal full EP details soon.

For now, Were I Blind reveals a debut single for the EP’s title track. Check out the music video below, and the band also comments:

“Our new single ‘Were I Blind’ is an analogy of the concept of how society is being subliminally controlled through media, and how we/society are continually becoming more blind as to what is actually going on in the world by feeding our egos with materialistic gains and likes on social media. The idea behind the lyrics is that if we were to close our eyes, perhaps we would wake up and see the truth.”

Execration launches new single, “Hammers of Vulcan”, online

– July 11th, 2017 –

This Friday (July 14th), Norwegian death metallers Execration will release their new album, Return To The Void, via Metal Blade Records. Today the band premieres a new song taken off Return To The Void: “Hammers Of Vulcan” – which can be heard at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTUs6hfCPTY

For another preview of Return To The Void, the title track and previous single “Eternal Recurrence” can be heard at: metalblade.com/execration – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:
–Digipak CD
–180g black vinyl (EU exclusive)
–grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–pot green-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–white/black-splatter vinyl (limited to 100 copies – EU exclusive)
–white/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 120 copies – USA exclusive)
–red transparent vinyl (limited to 100 copies – Hells Headbangers exclusive)
* plus digital options are also available!

“Coming off of two double 12″ vinyl albums, the first clear goal for writing ‘Return To The Void‘ was to deliver the same kind of dynamic and shifting song-writing in a more condensed to-the-point package”, comments Execration. Stripping songs down to their essential core has been a driving force while writing, and it shows – there is not a wasted moment on the album. Ticking in at 42 minutes – a perfect fit for the vinyl format – the album takes the listener through a whirlwind of thrash, death, black, and even heavy metal, fast and slow parts, and the trademark Execration shifts in mood, tempo, and atmosphere.

“As with the previous two albums, we wanted to capture the feel of a live performance, so all the basic tracks (drums, guitars, bass) were recorded live in our rehearsal studio in Oslo over the course of a weekend. Vocals, synths, and various effects where recorded the following weeks with assistance from Andreas Tylden (One Tail, One Head / Altaar). The album was then mixed and mastered by Tom Kvalsvoll of Kvalsonic Labs.”

Thematically, the album takes off into outer space, the world of dreams, and philosophic musings on time and space. The album’s seven songs and two instrumental tracks are permeated with the mysteries of the universe, both in lyrical content and concept, and in the music itself. This theme is further brought to life by the magnificent art of Zbigniew M. Bielak that adorns the front cover.

Return To The Void track-listing:
1. Eternal Recurrence
2. Hammers of Vulcan
3. Nekrocosm
4. Cephalic Transmissions
5. Blood Moon Eclipse
6. Unicursal Horrorscope
7. Through the Oculus
8. Return to the Void
9. Det Uransakelige Dyp

Execration line-up:
Cato Syversrud – Drums
Christian Johansen – Guitar / Vocals
Jorgen Maristuen – Guitar / Vocals
Jonas Helgemo – Bass

Beneath Posts “Eyecatcher” Lyric Video

Next month, Icelandic death metal unit Beneath will unleash third full-length album, “Ephemeris.” Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Fredrik Nordström at the acclaimed Studio Fredman in the fall of 2016, “Ephemeris” features new recruit Mike Heller at the drum stool.

The result is nine tracks of relentless brutality, and today one of those cuts comes online. Check out the “Eyecatcher” lyric video below.

Notes guitarist Unnar Sigurðsson: “‘Ephemeris’ is our very best release so far. We wanted to do an album more dynamic and natural than those before and we are extremely proud of the outcome. It has elements from all of us combined into something very different from the other releases.”

Adds Jóhann Ingi Sigurðsson, “‘Ephemeris’ has been a demanding album for us personally and in many ways, it represents a turning point for the band. We’ve always pushed ourselves in ways that keep us invested and engaged in our music­, and on this album, that meant making big changes to our overall sound. There are songs that are a marriage of pure heaviness and brutality, while on the other spectrum there are some very challenging technical arrangements pushing the limits of our playing abilities. In the end, we ended up with an album that feels musically multidimensional and that we are extremely proud of.”
