Reunited Chokehold Premiere Single “2.0”

Reunited Canadian hardcore band Chokehold will have a new record entitled “With This Thread I Hold On” released through Good Fight Music on April 19th. A first track called “2.0” is streaming ahead of that for you below.

Comments frontman Chris Logan speaking of the new single:

“‘2.0‘ is a song about the hardcore community and the use of social media to tear down like-minded individuals within it. Hardcore was built on our collective discomfort with society, but it now seems that it’s promoting more dissatisfaction among ourselves. In a way, we are losing sight of what this is supposed to be about and how we should be treating each other.

Political discussion in hardcore is becoming stagnant over the fear of alienation over the difference of opinion. While the world is falling apart around us, we are happy to cut and paste and copy and share our revolution blindly because we are too busy internalizing, shaming and collecting hardcore toys. No more us versus us, it’s us versus them.”

He adds:

“We are incredibly fortunate as a band to be still doing this thing after so many years. We are even luckier to be doing it with our longtime friends at Good Fight. We have always wanted this group to be a vessel for us as individuals to vent our ideas and our anger about injustices, politics and life challenges.

The world seems like it’s in its death throes and we are constantly bombarded with those things designed to keep us sedate and in place. It’s especially easy in these times to become victims of those traps and to feel overwhelmed and helpless. This record covers a lot of uncomfortable topics but moving forward means talking about them and exposing them. This band and this music is the thread we are holding on by, the thing that gives us a voice to be heard and hopefully allows us to make a change no matter how small.”

M.O.D. Streaming “Busted, Broke & American” Title Track

With song titles like “You’re a Fucking Dick,” “Busted, Broke & American,” and “All Out of Bubblegum,” you would think that M.O.D. clearly isn’t masking any intentions on the band’s upcoming new album.

“Busted, Broke, and American” will be released July 7th via Megaforce Records and today the title track comes online – check it out below.

As to be expected, “Busted, Broke & American” is fast, it’s furious, and it makes no apologies. It also mixes hardcore, punk rock, and thrash and the end result is a thoroughly combustible collection of songs. The words “I’m sorry” are not a part of the album’s vocabulary. At the center of the sonic storm remains Billy Milano, who has never been known to shy away from speaking his mind.

1. Eisenhower Was Right
2. The Final Declaration
3. You’re a Fucking Dick
4. Busted, Broke & American
5. Fight
6. Hooligan
7. Billy Be Damned
8. Shattered Dreams & Broken Glass
9. They
10. All Out Of Bubblegum
11. Go Go Revolution
12. Kennedy Speaks

Hideous Divinity Streams New Track “Angel Of Revolution”

Next month, Italian death metal unit Hideous Divinity, which features within its ranks current and former members of Hour Of Penance and Aborted, will unleash the “Adveniens” full-length album via Unique Leader.

In advance of its release, the band has unveiled “Angel Of Revolution” for communal
dissection. Elaborates guitarist Enrico Schettino of the track:

“Where did all this come from? Anger and frustration. Time was running out, recording sessions were approaching, and still, something was missing. The Riff was not there. Yet. Hours were spent listening, relistening, writing, and rewriting, and nothing. Almost giving up, it came. The Riff. Straight, simple, impulsive.

“The rest was easy: Stefano [Franceschini] came along with his punishing bassline and [vocalist] Enrico H. with the lyrics, one of his most memorable entrances ever. Listen to it: You will notice something different. Peculiar. What you hear is A Note. Ladies and gentlemen, here’s ‘Angel Of Revolution,” the straight-to-the-face smasher of the album.”

Slated for release on April 28th, the follow-up to previous “Cobra Verde” long player was recorded, mixed and mastered at Stefano Morabito’s 16th Cellar Studio (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse etc.) during the Autumn of 2016.
