Justice Theory Posts New Single “Welcome To The Family”

Finnish thrash metal band Justice Theory has released a new single titled ”Welcome To The Family.” The song chronicles a citizen who has had enough of this world shackled by foolish standards and limitations, so he builds a family of rebels to riot against all the rules.

Justice Theory’s Valtteri comments: “In the beginning we decided that our next single is going to be cheery, high-powered track. We took few steps back from massiveness and melodiousness that our previous single ‘Unbroken’ was all about. ‘

“‘Welcome To The Family’ is highly inspired by our first single ‘Necessary Evil’ and also has the vibes that Anthrax were been able to bring in their songs – Not too seriously, but convincingly. I think that we managed to get what we wanted in this song, and I’m quite sure that it will be one of the highlights on our upcoming shows. IT ROCKS!

“This song is dedicated to our dearest friends and fans, who are supported and believed in us from the very beginning. We are more than happy to see that you guys are out there! So huge thank you all!”

Incendiary Premieres New Song “The Product Is You” From Upcoming New Album “Thousand Mile Stare”

Incendiary premieres a new song entitled “The Product Is You”, taken from the upcoming new album “Thousand Mile Stare”, which will arrive in stores May 05th through Closed Casket Activities.

Check out now “The Product Is You” below.

Shares vocalist Brendan Garrone of this track:

“‘The Product Is You‘ was the last song we wrote for ‘Thousand Mile Stare.’ I think you can hear the urgency and anger on the track as we were sort of at our breaking point of writing and preparing for recording. This was unabashedly designed to be a heavy track. Lyrically, the song touches upon the notion of people as currency or commodities which can be bought and sold.

I kind of went off on a tangent about this onstage at a show in London and tried to turn that stream of consciousness speaking into the basis of the song. I’ll just say that everything comes at a price, even things we deem ‘free.'”

Sothis Members Form New Band Witch Casket

Ex-members of disbanded symphonic black metal group Sothis have regrouped to form new project Witch Casket. The band is currently hard at work on debut album “Hatred Index,” which should see a late 2017 release.

Today, Witch Casket has premiered a first ever video for the song “That Damn Devil” – check it out below. The band described the video to Metal Insider bys aing: “The lyric video for ‘That Damn Devil’ was created by Witch Casket vocalist Drogoth, with the concept of making the album cover artwork ‘come to life.’ Guitarists Nylock and Neal Tiemann wrote the song, and this is the first song released from the band’s upcoming debut album entitled ‘Hatred Index.'”

The formation of Witch Casket began in 2013 when ex-Sothis guitarist Colin “Nylock” Cameron and guitarist Neal Tiemann started working on writing songs together in Nylock’s Los Angeles studio. Once a majority of the songs had been written, ex-Sothis vocalist Adam “Drogoth” McCarthy was brought on to handle writing lyrics and recording vocals.

Originally formed simply as a studio project, all musical instrumentation was composed and executed by both Nylock and Tiemann. The album in its entirety was also produced; engineered, and mixed by Nylock himself in both his personal Hollywood studio and Los Angeles based Unfriendly Studios, where he is the lead engineer and co founder along with Metal Sanaz.

The album was completed with this lineup, however towards the end of the recording process, Tiemann departed the project to focus on writing for and touring with established SoCal metal band DevilDriver. As completion of the band’s debut album “Hatred Index” approached, live rehearsals were started with the addition of ex-Sothis guitarist Robert “Scathe” Enriquez, and drummer Kaspars Lucey-Grinbergs.

Northlane premieres a new song and music video entitled “Citizen”. A new album from the band is tentatively scheduled for a May/June release date with more details to come.

Check out now “Citizen” below.

Says guitarist Josh Smith of the song:

“‘Citizen’ is a song that was written about the First World police state and our willingness to live under the watch of those in power, for their means, while those who blow the lid on it suffer. Writing this one was quite a mission, we went through five completely different sets of lyrics and the final incarnation of the song was the eighth revision. It took a lot of work but we are proud of it and beyond excited to share it with you all.”
