“Metronomicon” is a rhythm game that collided with the RPG genre to birth an union between the two that is out now through Steam here.

Scratch Releasing New EP, Posts “Das Waltz” Video

Punk pioneers Glen and Chuck, aka the brothers Stilphen, are perhaps best known for their time as teenagers in Boston’s Gang Green from 1984-1986, at the very height of the band’s relevance and popularity.

Chuck wrote the ferocious music for the band’s biggest song, the party anthem “Alcohol” (which also appeared on the soundtrack of Jackass 3D), and the brothers appear on the band’s most successful record “Another Wasted Night.” 30 years later, the brothers still get along.

The new EP by Scratch, “El Monstro,” contains four songs – two tracks which appeared on 2013 compilation “Drop The Needle,” along with two never-before released songs, recorded in 1995 and shelved (and nearly forgotten about), until now. A limited pressing 12″ Green Vinyl LP will be released in September.

Mos Generator Streams Full “Abyssinia” Album

Yesterday the Washington state volume merchants from Mos Generator dropped their “Abyssinia” full-length album upon North Americas shores via Listenable Records. Check out a full stream below.

“‘Abyssinia’ is the continuation of an open relationship with many musical styles,” said hyper creative mainman and composer of more than one-thousand songs, Tony Reed.

He goes on to say: “This kind of exploration has always been a part of my writing but now I’m letting the flood gates open and I’m welcoming all of my musical influences to flow through the songs. ‘Strangest Times’ and ‘Red Canyons’ are very typical Mos Generator style heavy rock songs but tunes like ‘Outlander,’ which takes a lot from the soundtrack era Pink Floyd, or ‘Catspaw,’ which sounds like something I would have written at age twenty under the influence of Husker Du and Voivod, move the band into a whole new area that I’m very excited to be moving towards.”

Serial Butcher Track Appearing In New “Nuke ‘Em High” Movie

Track selections from “Brute Force Lobotomy,” the latest full-length from Belgian death metal horde Serial Butcher, will be included in the soundtrack for Troma Entertainment’s upcoming “Return To Return To Nuke ‘Em High Volume 2” by Lloyd Kaufman (creator of The Toxic Avenger).

In a collective description of the inspiration behind “Brute Force Lobotomy,” the band notes: “Sometimes you just want to stab Uncle Lloydie in the eye with a blunt, rusty knife. Until he’s dead. And then you stab some more… just to be sure…”

It’s a fitting theme for “Return To Return To Nuke ‘Em High Volume 2” which, keeping in the Troma tradition, is sure to relentlessly assault the audience with scenes of graphic horror hilarity.

“Return To Return To Nuke ‘Em High Volume 2” is the long-awaited (LOL!) sequel to “Return To Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1,” and it is currently in the post-production stage, scheduled to be released in the summer of 2016.

Soilwork Posts Lyric Video For “The Ride Majestic” Title Track

Swedish masters of melodic metal from Soilwork will release their forthcoming 10th studio album, “The Ride Majestic,” worldwide on August 28th, 2015 via Nuclear Blast Records. Various pre-order bundles are available right here.

After a teaser that bafflingly came out via MySpace, Soilwork today reveals the first single from the album, “The Ride Majestic,” which can be heard through the lyric video below.

Vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid discusses the meaning behind the song: “[The title track] was one of the first songs we wrote for this album. The intro sets a certain melancholic mood and after that it’s all pure melodic mayhem. There’s a very epic and anthemic feel to it, which suits the album title perfectly.

“The lyrics deal with the fear of dying and the art of remaining sane while you’re still alive. Not wanting to miss a thing, wanting to embrace every moment, and being able to bring it all back on your dying day, with a snap of your fingers. It’s also a tribute to the ones we’ve lost and the comfort of hoping that they will catch us when we fall, on the other side.

“We believe that, if there is an afterlife, this song would be the soundtrack to that journey. It deals with the acceptance of life and death and possibly everything between and beyond.”
