Moral Void Announces “Deprive” Album Release

Chicago blackened hardcore punk trio Moral Void will drop blistering debut full-length album entitled “Deprive” on August 11th with Translation Loss Records.

Since 2012, Moral Void has given only a taste of the band’s thunderously caustic sound with three 7″ releases (one being a split with Young And In The Way). For this debut full-length album, “Deprive” delivers ten dismal new songs, each one grittier than the last.

“We wanted to create a group of movements that were cohesive, versatile, and dynamic while maintaining aggression and rawness,” drummer Ryan Emmans explains. “We were focused on writing music that gets to the point right out of the gate and doesn’t waste anyone’s time.”

The album was recorded at Minbal Studios by Moral Void’s own guitarist/vocalist Matt Russell and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. The full track listing is as follows:

1. Harvest
2. Callous
3. Drudge
4. Dust
5. Prey
6. Frail
7. Bereft
8. Deceit
9. Shadow
10. Martyr

Fire From The Gods Posts “The Voiceless” Video

Austin, Texas metal band Fire From the Gods today releases new video “The Voiceless,” which can be seen below. The band is known for uniquely bridging the gap between metal fury and hip hop, and this track is off of the band’s upcoming album, “Narrative Retold,” which hits stores May 19th.

Fire from the Gods signed with Rise Records for the release of 2016 LP, “Narrative,” which was produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Of Mice & Men, Breaking Benjamin). Written from the point of view of a minority man living in urban America, “Narrative” put American society under a microscope, tackling topics like racism and abuse of power and balancing those with empowering underdog anthems.

Blacktop Mojo Posts “Burn The Ships” Title Track

Blacktop Mojo just dropped the second and title single in anticipation of the March 10th, 2017 LP release “Burn The Ships.” Listen in below. Blacktop Mojo also comments:

“We all quit our jobs at about the same time to make this record and play as much as possible — that was our all in, no going back moment. It reminded me of a story we heard from the 1500s about a Spanish explorer that sailed to conquer a territory.

“Once they landed on the beach, he burned all the ships so all his men knew one thing was clear, there’s no going back. That’s what that song is about, and that’s the story of our lives at the point of the record being created.”

1. Where The Wind Blows
2. End Of Days
3. Burn The Ships
4. Prodigal
5. Shadows On The Wall
6. Sweat
7. Pyromaniac
8. 8000 Lines
9. Dog On A Leash
10. Make A Difference
11. Chains
12. Dream On
13. Underneath

Fight Amp To Disband After “Final Amp” Tour Dates

After a 12-year run, Philadelphia rockers Fight Amp will officially disband following an upcoming North American tour in November.

Now dubbed “Final Amp,” the November tour hits eight cities across the northeastern US and Canada, ending in Brooklyn, New York for a final show. The band gives this statement:

“Well, here it is. As of today we’re officially announcing that our November shows will be our last. Fight Amp is going on indefinite hiatus.

“It’s been a long strange, wild, educational, fun and sometimes painful journey, and this is not a decision we made lightly or quickly. It may come as a surprise to a lot of you, but the three of us have been chewing on this for a while. The timing just seems right at this point. We’re leaving on a high note with the release of our favorite Fight Amp record to date, Constantly Off, as our farewell album.

“We can’t thank you all enough for riding this thing through with us. There’s enough stories, gratitude, lessons and history embedded in this band at this point that we could write a book on the topic. Instead of a long-winded statement here we’ll let those things come out as time passes. Without going into too much further detail, we’re making this move to focus on other musical projects. We’re lifers in this thing and we’re not going anywhere as musicians, so stay tuned for what’s to come. As far as the new material we had written and started to demo, we’ll let that sleep for now.

“It’s been real, people. Thank you all so much for the continued support and we hope to see you in November to see Fight Amp one last time.”

Nov 4 – Kent, OH @ Outpost
Nov 5 – Chicago, IL @ Township
Nov 6 – Detroit, MI @ Sanctuary
Nov 8 – Toronto, ON @ Coalition
Nov 9 – Montreal, QC @ Turbo Haus
