New Song “Soul Taker” Streaming From High Reeper

Delaware stoner act High Reeper has teamed up with Indy Metal Vault to stream the new song “Soul Taker,” which appears on the band’s upcoming self-titled album. Check out the song at this location, or just in the player down below.

“High Reeper” will be released on November 3rd. Pre-order the album over here.

Formed in 2016, High Reeper is made up of Zach Thomas, Napz Mosley, Andrew Price, Pat Daly and Shane Trimble. Originally started as just a studio band, it rapidly became apparent that these songs were meant to be heard live and loud. The band made their debut in the Philly/DE stoner rock scene in early 2017 with success which was followed up by the recording of the self-titled debut in May. With a sound deeply rooted in modern stoner rock while still giving a nod to the earliest Sabbath records, High Reeper’s first offering is driven by pounding rhythms, thick guitars and the soaring, screeching vocals.

New Single “Teras” Posted By Through The Eyes Of The Dead

Through The Eyes Of The Dead has debuted a third new single titled “Teras” today, which you can check out in the player below. “Teras” features former vocalist Nate Johnson. The new track comes from the band’s new LP, “Disomus,” which is scheduled to be released October 13, 2017 via Entertainment One Music (eOne)/Good Fight Music.

“We’re extremely excited to release ‘Teras’ to everyone,” says bassist Jake Ososkie. “Getting two vocalists like Nate and Danny on the same track took this song to new heights. Enjoy it and make sure you pick up ‘Disomus’ on October 13th!”

Fans can find three new tracks available right now on all streaming services and digital providers. Tracks “Teras,” “Obitual” (featuring original vocalist Anthony Gunnells) and “Hate The Living” are available as iTunes instant gratification tracks, meaning fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive all three tracks as instant downloads.

“Disomus” is the long anticipated follow up to their last LP, “Skepsis,” released in 2010. “Disomus” marks the second consecutive album with vocalist Danny Rodriguez and drummer Michael Ranne (a first in the group’s impressive history) together with longtime bassist Jake Ososkie and founding guitarist and songwriting engine Justin Longshore.

“Disomus” doubles as the studio introduction of new guitarist Steven Funderburk (also of Wretched, Lillake) and the return of original vocalist Anthony Gunnells and his successor, Nate Johnson, via strong guest appearances, bringing Through The Eyes Of The Dead full circle.

“Disomus” is the medical term describing an abnormal fetus with two bodies but one head. The album’s subject matter includes the tale of a man buried alive by a cult (“Obitual”), a dark magician’s creation of a malignant entity via sacrificial killing (“Haruspex”), underworld spirits doomed to roam the earth (“Dismal”), the Styx River of Greek myth (“Vortices in the Stygian Maelstrom”), the themes of the Alien/Prometheus film franchise (“Teras,” alternately named for an abnormal fetus with two heads and one body), and the real life tragedy and horror discovered by Rodriguez, a Chicago police officer, when called upon to check on the well being of an elderly person who lived alone (“Till Solace, She’ll Haunt”).

The track listing is:

1. Hate The Living
2. Obitual (song streaming here)
3. Haruspex
4. Of Mortals, We Once Were
5. The Binding Nightmare
6. Vortices In The Stygian Malestrom
7. Ingis
8. Teras
9. Till Solane, She’ll Haunt
10. Dismal

BLS engages and inspires audiences everywhere they go, on every radio dial they burn, inviting all comers to join in and participate in their brotherhood and sisterhood of hard rock and vigor.

Details Of New Album “No Grave, No Burial” Issued By Statues

Following the reveal of the disturbing and unsettling music video for “Unrest” last week (check it out in the player below), Australian hardcore outfit Statues has now revealed pre-order details, plus artwork and track listing from the forthcoming album “No Grave, No Burial,” which is to be self-released on November 10th. You can now pre-order the album from Bandcamp or iTunes.

Statues explores a new direction with this record, whilst maintaining a strong connection to the roots and increasingly making them one of the prominent live bands to see, within Australian heavy music. The band has shared stages with the likes of Northlane, Norma Jean, Every Time I Die and many more.

“No Grave, No Burial” is a conceptual album set in the heart of a civil war, the character must find safety by leaving his home. To escape he must lose loved ones, battle his own demons, face who took all he knows and uncover a horrific truth at the end of his struggles. He fights to find freedom, only to further persecution and a bleak reality.

Statues kept the recording process entirely in-house with the album produced and mixed by Matthew Templeman (Voyager, Make Them Suffer, Surroundings) and mastered by Matthew’s long-time collaborator, Simon Struthers (Paul Dempsy, The Love Junkies, The Decline). The production balances the chaos and contrast of the previous album, with a thicker and more atmospheric aesthetic and a reflective of the gut wrenching theme of this record.

The track listing is:

1 Collapse
2 Sirens
3 Defiance
4 OnwardsTo The Sun
5 –
6 No Grave, No Burial
7 Unrest
8 Dirge
9 Sanctuary
