New Album “With All Their Might” Announced By Dyscarnate

UK death metal trio Dyscarnate will release the third full-length album, and first for Unique Leader Records, on September 15th. Titled “With All Their Might,” the eight-track offering was captured by Stu McKay (Ingested, Acrania et al) at Studio 6 in England and mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Ancient, Aborted, Volbeat, Evergrey et al) at Hansen Studios in Denmark.

“‘With All Their Might’ is the sound of us nailing our colors to the mast in no uncertain terms,” issues the band of their latest release. “We’ve always worked on each new album as its own entity, and feel the whole thing needs to flow as one cohesive piece. Every song has its place on the record, but the lyrics and feel of each one reflects a signature theme. We feel that while this record is the most complete thing we’ve ever done, it’s also the most varied, dynamic, and evolved we have ever been. We have written this album for only ourselves, and as a result feel we have something our fans will really connect to. Dyscarnate is now split between Shropshire, Sussex, and Amsterdam, which has meant this record has been written and recorded in a wide variety of locations. For the last two weeks of writing, we set ourselves up in a secluded farmhouse just over the Welsh border, where we worked non-stop putting the finishing touches to the demos, as well as tracking all the vocals ourselves. Inspiration has come from everywhere on the musical spectrum and beyond. We didn’t want to work within any kind of parameters, and tried things we wouldn’t have gone near in the past. Song and lyric concepts have included, among many others: existential dread, insanity, human perception, and strength of will.”

Preorder information and the first official video will be announced in the weeks to come. The album artwork and track listing can be found here:

1. Of Mice And Mountains
2. This Is Fire!
3. Iron Strengthens Iron
4. Traitors In The Palace
5. To End All Flesh Before Me
6. Backbreaker
7. All The Devils Are Here
8. Nothing Seems Right

Tetrarch Unveils “Freak” Album Details

Tetrarch is currently trekking across the states on the “Scream Out Loud” tour, hyping fans up for new full-length album “Freak.” Today, the band is thrilled to reveal confirmed details on that album, which is due hit stores on September 29th, 2017 and in the spirit of independence, pre-orders will go live on July 4th.

Check out the title track “Freak” below. Although “Freak” is not a concept album, the album title depicts themes close to lead guitarist Diamond Rowe’s heart.

“‘Freak’ is basically about embracing the weird things about yourself that other people may find bizarre,” says Rowe. “I guess you could say I’m a bit of a freak. I’m not what you would consider your typical guitar player in a metal band! Honestly, it’s great though. I like seeing the look on people’s faces when they find out how huge of a metalhead I am, and even more so when they see me on stage ripping it up with the guys. Essentially, I’m what some might consider an outcast, or a freak, and I love it and embrace it. This song and album are for the people who, like us, are willing to flaunt their individuality.”

“Recording Freak in Denver, CO with Dave Otero was honestly such a privilege,” adds Rowe. “We want to grow creatively with every release. We really tapped into a lot of different influences on this record and tried new things that we never did with some of our previous EP’s. We challenged ourselves to think outside of the box, and are extremely happy with how it came out. In some ways, this record is a lot heavier than anything we have ever done, and in other ways it’s a lot creepier and mysterious. I think there’s a little something for everyone on this record.”

3. Pull the Trigger

Conveyer Debuts Title Track From Upcoming New Album “No Future”

Conveyer debuts the title track from the band’s upcoming new album “No Future”, which will arrive in stores on June 23rd through Victory Records.

Check out now “No Future” below.

Comments vocalist Danny Adams :

“‘No Future‘ is the title track for the record because we felt it had to be as straight-forward as the meaning behind it. Human beings are meant to exist in a perfect place, but we’ve somehow deprived ourselves of the desire to venerate perfect things. I’m constantly reminded that I’m unequipped to accept that my existence is limited to this life. It’s also not a typical sounding Conveyer song – we wanted to bleed out some older influences like Buried Alive and Figure Four.”

Thousand Below Premieres New Song “Sinking Me” From Forthcoming New Album

Metalcore outfit Thousand Below premieres a new song entitled “Sinking Me”, taken from the forthcoming new album, which will be out later this year via Rise Records.

Check out now “Sinking Me” below.

Comments frontman James Deberg :

“We’re so incredibly excited to be releasing our music video for ‘Sinking Me‘ as the second single off our album. ‘Sinking Me‘ is the opening track of our record and we wanted to set the emotional tone for the album right out the gate with a high energy song that that lived on the ‘heavier’ spectrum of the record, but also carried heavy lyrical content. The song is the introduction to the emotional descent that the album is about. Part of the lyrics in the first verse say, ‘Coming to terms with the reality of a broken spine / Cost of the weight of the world / Unsure If I can hold it all up and buy some time.’ It’s the first immediate awareness of myself ‘going-under’ metaphorically as a result of the emotional stress that came from the losses I experienced in my life two years before the album was created. The clean vocals are much more aggressive on this song than others on the record. I wanted to paint the immediate pain and frustration of the loss I experienced pulling me under right out the gate, while also giving listeners something high energy and catchy to yell along with. We feel ‘Tradition‘ and ‘Sinking Me‘ are great introductory songs for our band to come out the gate with and we’re so excited to get the rest of the record released before the end of the year.”

The band will soon be out on “The Nightlife In Revolt Tour” with Youth In Revolt, Light Up The Sky and Vesta Collide as support. Dates for that run include:

06/15 Detroit, MI – The Ritz
06/16 Dayton, OH – Emerson Theater

Wilderness Dream Premieres New Song “The Observer” From Upcoming New EP “Paralysis Rise”

California’s blackened thrash outfit Wilderness Dream premieres a new song entitled “The Observer”, taken from the forthcoming sophomore EP “Paralysis Rise”, which will be out in stores June 23 on Creator-Destructor Records.

Check out now “The Observer” below.

Says Wilderness Dream about the track:

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring you the first single from our upcoming second EP! After some deliberation, we came to the consensus that ‘The Observer’ was the most violent, crushing preview of the tone of this record, and we hope that you all enjoy it! ‘The Observer’ is the closing track on Paralysis Rise, and definitely reveals the shift in our sound towards a darker, less melodic realm of the blackened thrash metal universe…Turn the lights down and turn that shit up!”
