Retrocausal by Cleric

“Retrocausal is an adventure story set in a dystopian future. Cleric vocalist/keyboardist Nick Shellenberger explains: “Lyrically, Retrocausal opens a window into a bleak sci-fi landscape plagued by environmental fallout, in which corrupt governments send their citizens to die, and centers around one submarine crew that learns of their intended fate and chooses to pursue the beyond, despite the terrors that await. Told from different perspectives throughout the record, it’s a story of hope, fear, uncertainty, and constant struggle in the face of failure and death, and in search of something that may never be.”

The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia) at The Thousand Caves in Queens, New York.

The artwork was created by Cleric’s Nick Shellenberger.

Video Clip For New Song “Oddity” Premiered By Tetrarch

Buzzworthy metal group Tetrarch has been making huge moves this summer! The band is about to wrap up the current North American tour with metal giants DevilDriver and fellow support artists 36 Crazyfists, Cane Kill and Uncured, and next Friday, September 29, the band releases the new full-length album “Freak.” Today, the band premiered the new single/video clip “Oddity” over at Revolver’s website “>over here. You can also view the clip in the player at the bottom.

With one listen it’s clear – Tetrarch oozes raw, unbridled skill. The band’s new album, “Freak,” amplifies the band’s tried-and-true blend of intense metalcore riffage and driving drums with the dark vibes and haunting choruses of hooky modern hard rock. Tetrarch’s most cited influences – ranging from bands such as heavy metal giants Slipknot and Trivium to hard rock darlings Mudvayne and Linkin Park – are evident but never replicated, as they stay true to their own unique mixture that appeals to any heavy music fan.

Freak was recorded with seasoned producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decaptitation, Allegeon, Khemmis) at the helm, who brought out the band’s profound heaviness without sacrificing the catchy, melodic edge that has hooked the band’s impressive underground fanbase.

The track list is:

1. Freak
2. Spit
3. Pull the Trigger (available here)
4. Mary
5. Oddity
6. Break the Trend
7. Please Let Me Be
8. Torn Apart

King Parrot Streaming New Track “Die Before You Die”

“Ugly Produce” is the impending new full-length from Australian extreme metal miscreants King Parrot, slated for release on September 22nd in North America via Housecore Records, in Europe via Agonia Records, and in Australia via EVP Recordings.

The album was recorded at the infamous Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia and produced by Blood Duster’s Jason Fuller. In advance of its official detonation, today second single, “Die Before You Die,” is offered up for communal consumption.

King Parrot comments: “This track was one of the last we put together when we were writing the album. It’s got a real thrash vibe to it, but also features some of the slowest and sludgiest moments from our forthcoming album. The lyrics touch on breaking out of the mold that’s expected of you in society, and pissing caution to the wind. It’s effectively what we’ve had to do to get this band out of Australia. If you live like you’ve already died, or approach life from that mindset, you can get through most things without fear.”
