Adore (08:42) 10. DDHS (01:23) Total playing time: 0:43:28   NUMENOREAN  unveil their staggering sophomore album 'Adore.’ Three years in the making, the album is a towering work of lustrous metallic art. Its deeply-nuanced tracks weave ferocity and beauty into sweeping pieces that are as haunting as they are cathartic.  NUMENOREAN  place themselves at the fore of the genre’s evolution with this profoundly moving work of modern, post-black metal brilliance.  Having only released a 2-song demo in 2014, the band got offered a lengthy recording deal by Season of Mist. Soon after, debut record ‘Home’ followed and the underground met  NUMENOREAN ’s take on post black metal with some critical acclaim, yet also polarizing views, due to the graphic nature of the cover.  With ‘Home’,  NUMENOREAN  achieved far more than just following a musical path pioneered by DEAFHEAVEN, ALCEST, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, and DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT. The Canadians crafted a musical masterpiece that embraced beauty, harshness and melancholy in equal measure and transformed those into fragile, nihilistic and hauntingly beautiful songs.  After playing shows with DEAFHEAVEN, GHOST BATH and BATUSKHA in Canada, the United States and Australia,  NUMENOREAN  set up a crowdfunding campaign to fund the recording of the sophomore album with Josh Schroeder (GHOST BATH).  Forming the antithesis of the previous album, ‘Adore’ adopts a more vibrant approach, both musically and thematically. Rather than seeing life from a nihilistic view, the songs convey a loose message of hope. The lyrics and the theme of the music explore being beat, down and broken, but still finding a way to preserve by finding reasons to appreciate life for what it can be.    NUMENOREAN  skilfully employ the feeling of melancholy, an intricate song writing and the black metal roots that marked their debut. Yet the newfound hooks and facets of ‘Adore’, represent a band that has established and evolved sound. ‘Adore’, will be one for the year lists.

SYLVAINE First Ever Female Artist Nominated for Norwegian Grammy Award in Category Metal

Scandinavian multi-instrumentalist  SYLVAINE  is nominated for the Spellemannprisen, often referred to as the Norwegian Grammy Awards, for her recently released album 'Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone.'  SYLVAINE  is the very first woman ever to be nominated in the Metal category of the award since the Spellemannprisen's inception in 1972. A full list of nominees can be found HERE .   SYLVAINE  comments on the nomination: "It's an incredible honor for me to be nominated for this year's Spellemann prize in the category metal! I'm beyond grateful to have 'Atoms Aligned, Coming Undon' up there alongside three other great Norwegian metal releases from last year. It's the very first time a woman has been nominated in this category, let alone a 'one woman' solo project like  SYLVAINE , making it an even more exciting and special thing to me."  'Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone' can be ordered in various formats  HERE .   A strong duality between worlds. A balance between the beautiful and the harsh, serenity and chaos, between an outside and an inner world, between our human life and the spiritual origins.   Norwegian multi-instrumentalist  SYLVAINE  deals with the extreme range of emotions this human existence has to offer, as a result of being in constant conflict with oneself and struggling to adapt to this place we call our own. The project serves as an emotional catharsis for the artist, revealing the eternal longing for something more residing within its melodies, capturing the feeling of being trapped and restraint by the human form.   After a year of playing selected, successful concerts around Europe together with her live band, like the European tour with Austrian post-metal outfit HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY and a headlining tour in Russia/Ukraine tour,  SYLVAINE  once again entered the renown Drudenhaus Studio in France during autumn 2017 to start the recording of her new creation, "Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone". Together with recording and mixing engineer Benoît Roux and her two session musicians, Stephen Shepard and Stéphane “Neige” Paut (ALCEST),  SYLVAINE  pushes the duality between beautiful and extreme even further on her third album, bringing the concept behind the project to new heights. The album mastered by Jack Shirley (DEAFHEAVEN, OATHBREAKER) at Atomic Garden in San Francisco (US).  Still serving as the sole composer of both music and lyrics, producer and musician of most instruments herself,  SYLVAINE  takes the sound of her sophomore album "Wistful" (2016) and develops it into a more mature and contrasted form on "Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone", all while trying to communicate the essence of her project, which remains the same as always before.  Now enter the cold and icy world of 'Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone,' and let yourself be enveloped by its pressing despair.

LIFE OF AGONY is Recording with TOOL Producer SYLVIA MASSY on New Concept Album “THE SOUND OF SCARS”

Brooklyn, NY’s  LIFE OF AGONY  is currently tracking their highly anticipated sixth studio album   “THE SOUND OF SCARS”     with esteemed producer  SYLVIA MASSY  (Tool, System Of A Down) at her recording studio Studio Divine in Ashland, Oregon. Additional recording will take place at various studios in New York. Sylvia Massy will also handle mixing duties for the album. "  The Sound of Scars  " is expected to drop this fall from Napalm Records.  “Sylvia has a deep understanding of what this band is all about and we’ve wanted to work with her for a very, very long time,” says bassist  Alan Robert . “Especially, since this is a concept album continuing the story of ' River Runs Red ,' we’re extremely grateful to have her on board to help capture the darkness, raw emotion and heaviness of the new material.”   “ Life of Agony  began boldly over 25 years ago with its hard musical discourse into the human condition, a darkly hued story which continues to evolve today,” explains Sylvia Massy. “This is a unique band with a remarkable history of personal discovery - a phoenix tale of flight, fire and resurrection. This month we begin again to record the latest chapter. I am excited to be the witness to the creation of the new  Life of Agony  album!”     "The Sound of Scars"   marks the first  Life of Agony  album with new drummer Veronica Bellino, who joined the group last January and performed all-year long on  LOA’s  highly successful “Rise of the Underground” tour. Bellino is best known for her work with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jeff Beck, DMC, Richie Sambora/Orianthi, and Carmine Appice/Slamm.   Besides work on the album,  Life of Agony  has already announced a handful of dates for 2019, including a co-headlining show with Overkill on Friday, May 10th at PlayStation Theater in New York City, Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany on August 2nd, and Rhein Riot Festival in Cologne, Germany with Body Count on August 3rd.

BRUCE CORBITT Public Memorial To Take Place March 9th In Fort Worth, Texas

A public memorial for former Rigor Mortis and Warbeast vocalist  BRUCE CORBITT  will be held on Saturday March 9th at the Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth, Texas.   CORBITT  passed away on January 25th following an extensive and tireless battle with esophageal cancer. He was 56 years old.  CORBITT  was diagnosed in May 2017 and kept his family, friends, and fans up to date with the many trials and tribulations of his journey through regular open and honest Facebook Live updates. A true inspiration,  CORBITT  remained hopeful and determined even in the face of some of the grimmest circumstances and maintained his courage, drive, and positive nature though his final days.  Beyond playing a pivotal rule within the thrash/speed metal scene for over thirty years,  CORBITT was a dedicated hearthealth advocate following the passing of Rigor Mortis guitarist Mike Scaccia, who died of a heart attack in 2012.  CORBITT , who himself struggled with heart disease, would go on to perform Rigor Mortis material with the band's remaining members under the moniker Wizards Of Gore in tribute to Scaccia.  CORBITT  took home the Best Documentary Rotscar Award at Housecore Horror Fest 2014 for his Rigor Mortis Documentary  Welcome To Your Funeral  which documents the band's earliest beginnings through their signing with Capitol Records in 1987 and had been working a book which will be released initially as a limited hardcore edition with all proceeds going to the support of the  CORBITT  family. Stay tuned for details.  Reads the public memorial page, "We will come together to celebrate and remember a great man who touched the hearts of so many people in this world. We will show our love and support for his wife Jeanna, his daughter Chyna, his stepson Lyric, and  BRUCE 's amazing mother Glenda. We will celebrate in the most beautiful way possible by honoring  BRUCE 's final wishes to make his memorial just the way he wanted it. Additional details on special presentations, guest musicians, and other surprises are still being worked out. Stay tuned and You Know Damn Well!"   BRUCE CORBITT Public Memorial:   3/09/2019 Ridglea Theater - Fort Worth, TX [ info ]  Doors: 5:30 pm Memorial: 7:00 pm   Live performances requested by BRUCE:  Iron Jaw Rabid Flesh Eaters    MCs:  Debbie Sexxton of 97.1 KEGL "Thrashin" Alan of KNON Hardtime Radio   Eulogies by:  Scott Shelby Thrashin' Alan Casey Orr Harden Harrison   CORBITT  played what he thought would be his final show with Warbeast -- a special set at the annual  Fort Worth Weekly  Music Awards Ceremony where the band was inducted into the 2018 Fort Worth Music Hall Of Fame -- last July, at the time noting,  " I'm really excited and thankful to the  Fort Worth Weekly  for showing us this much appreciation. I'm proud that I'm even feeling good enough right now to be able to attempt it. But I do know my limitations and I will be careful. All I know is I get to experience that feeling of being on stage again... and that's why I keep on fighting. Because good things do finally happen if you can just hang in there long enough. You know damn well!"  The performance was outstanding and  CORBITT  continued showing signs of improvement.

CORBITT's Warbeast bandmates reflect on his passing:   Scott Shelby: " BRUCE  and I have been friends since the late '80s and were early pioneers in the Dallas/Fort Worth metal scene and later joined forces to form Warbeast.  BRUCE  and I worked together as a team, or as he would say the dynamic duo. We both had a vision and our own skills to make it work and that's how we did everything that you do in a band and it worked out great for us. Unfortunately, you don't notice all the great things in a person until they die and what my friend did for Texas metal and our scene and branching out to the rest of the world is a huge loss in itself let alone all he did for others in need; doing many benefit gigs for various people... everything he and we did was done in a big style with flawless production! I could go on and on but all our peers in the business know what I'm talking about. There is a huge hole in my life, in our scene, and in the metal industry. He was a great man. I miss you,  BRUCE . We had so much unfinished business. Rest in Beast."  Joey "Blue" Gonzalez: " BRUCE CORBITT  was my bandmate one of my best friends. I wouldn't be where I am today without his help and guidance. He will always be with me on and off stage. We all will continue to share the music he created so the world will never forget.  CORBITT  Forever."  Drew Shoup: "I was 17 years old and it was 2012. I was still in high school at a small ski resort town in Colorado called Crested Butte. There was absolutely no metal there and when Down/Warbeast came to Denver (which was five hours away) I knew I had to go. I hadn't ever seen either band; I just knew of them through following Housecore. That was the night that completely changed my life. After experiencing it I knew that THAT was what I wanted to do. Warbeast was so high energy and instantly became my favorite band. I was obsessed. Fast forward two years later and they had lost their guitar player. This was my chance. I moved all the way from Colorado down to DFW just to try out and join this band. It was so surreal jamming along with these dudes that I idolized (and still do). BRUCE  brought in a 19-year-old kid and pretty much a complete stranger to join his band. I know he had so many other choices in this town that he could've picked but he gave me a chance and had faith in me.  BRUCE  made me feel so welcome in the Dallas scene and made me feel like a part of a family. He truly cared about people and he was a great man. He was always doing benefit shows in the scene and always involved. Watching him struggle and suffer in pain was the worst thing I've experienced yet. Nobody deserves to go through that. Especially someone like  BRUCE . Playing alongside him and working with him was absolutely surreal and a dream come true. He was such a great bandmate, brother, father, son, singer, friend, and person in general. I would do anything to play one more show with him. I feel for his wife Jeanna, his daughter Chyna, and his stepson Lyric. BRUCE  is immortal now through his music in Warbeast and Rigor Mortis. He will be missed by everyone. Rest In Peace, Batman."  Warbeast released their  Enter The Arena  full-length in 2017 Housecore Records. The record -- which featured Corbitt and Shelby alongside then-new-members guitarist Drew Shoup and bassist Lyric Ferchaud -- was recorded at Philip H. Anselmo's Nodferatu's Lair, mixed by Mike Thompson at the Riff Factory, and mastered by Lee Russell. For physical orders go to  THIS LOCATION .

A public memorial for former Rigor Mortis and Warbeast vocalist BRUCE CORBITT will be held on Saturday March 9th at the Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth, Texas.

CORBITT passed away on January 25th following an extensive and tireless battle with esophageal cancer. He was 56 years old. CORBITT was diagnosed in May 2017 and kept his family, friends, and fans up to date with the many trials and tribulations of his journey through regular open and honest Facebook Live updates. A true inspiration, CORBITT remained hopeful and determined even in the face of some of the grimmest circumstances and maintained his courage, drive, and positive nature though his final days.

Beyond playing a pivotal rule within the thrash/speed metal scene for over thirty years, CORBITTwas a dedicated hearthealth advocate following the passing of Rigor Mortis guitarist Mike Scaccia, who died of a heart attack in 2012. CORBITT, who himself struggled with heart disease, would go on to perform Rigor Mortis material with the band's remaining members under the moniker Wizards Of Gore in tribute to Scaccia. CORBITT took home the Best Documentary Rotscar Award at Housecore Horror Fest 2014 for his Rigor Mortis Documentary Welcome To Your Funeral which documents the band's earliest beginnings through their signing with Capitol Records in 1987 and had been working a book which will be released initially as a limited hardcore edition with all proceeds going to the support of the CORBITT family. Stay tuned for details.

Reads the public memorial page, "We will come together to celebrate and remember a great man who touched the hearts of so many people in this world. We will show our love and support for his wife Jeanna, his daughter Chyna, his stepson Lyric, and BRUCE's amazing mother Glenda. We will celebrate in the most beautiful way possible by honoring BRUCE's final wishes to make his memorial just the way he wanted it. Additional details on special presentations, guest musicians, and other surprises are still being worked out. Stay tuned and You Know Damn Well!"

CORBITT played what he thought would be his final show with Warbeast -- a special set at the annual Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Ceremony where the band was inducted into the 2018 Fort Worth Music Hall Of Fame -- last July, at the time noting, "I'm really excited and thankful to the Fort Worth Weekly for showing us this much appreciation. I'm proud that I'm even feeling good enough right now to be able to attempt it. But I do know my limitations and I will be careful. All I know is I get to experience that feeling of being on stage again... and that's why I keep on fighting. Because good things do finally happen if you can just hang in there long enough. You know damn well!"

The performance was outstanding and CORBITT continued showing signs of improvement. So much so, the band had planned to release a special Warbeast EP celebrating his strength and determination. Warbeast would play another show in October as headliners of Vulgarfest 3 at the Ridglea Theater where CORBITT again patrolled the stage against all odds. Some weeks later however, doctors found the cancer had spread again and CORBITT's health went on a steady decline.

CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF CHESTER BENNINGTON: A PHOTO EXHIBIT BY JIM LOUVAU

TO BE HELD ON MARCH 20 AT THE BLACK SHEEP GALLERY (BURBANK, CA)

PORTION OF PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT WIDOW TALINDA BENNINGTON'S CHARITY FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION, 320 CHANGE DIRECTION

In commemoration of the late  CHESTER BENNINGTON -- best known for being the vocalist for multi-platinum rock band  Linkin Park -a special photo exhibit will take place on  March 20 , what would have been his 43rd birthday, at The   Black Sheep Gallery  in  Burbank, CA  featuring never-before-seen photos captured by  CHESTER 's close friend and artist  JIM LOUVAU .  The event will take place from  7:00 - 10:00 PM  following a private VIP reception for family and friends from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. A limited amount of tickets for the event are on sale now for $25, with a portion of proceeds being donated to his widow, Talinda Bennington's charity for suicide prevention,  320 Changes Direction . Tickets are available for purchase here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/celebrating-the-life-of-chester-bennington-a-photo-exhibit-by-jim-louvau-tickets-54775251251 .  "Over the course of our 17-year friendship I was lucky enough to document the evolution of the young musician who never took himself too seriously to the family man and philanthropist he developed into,"  LOUVAU  says. "Now it's time to honor the memory of someone who I owe a great deal of gratitude by sharing the art we created together with the world and continue to celebrate his legacy on his birthday."   LOUVAU , who's also the vocalist of the metal band  There Is No Us , shares how the two first met and their friendship grew over the years:  "I originally met Chester on August 15, 2000, when a previous band of mine played a show with Linkin Park at The Mason Jar. This was a few months before Linkin Park's  Hybrid Theory  was released. Linkin Park was still a developing band at the time and their booking agent requested that they open for a local act that had a good following. A few days before the show I got a call asking if we'd mind switching slots and letting Linkin Park play last because one of the guys in the band was from Phoenix and his family couldn't get to the show until later in the night. We gladly switched slots with them. That "guy from Phoenix" turned out to be Chester and he watched my band's set and in the middle of our show we broke a snare drum and he was the first guy coming over to help us and let us use theirs."  "A few months after that I was performing at a radio show and someone tapped me on the shoulder backstage, it was Chester. He told me how much he loved our show and then he invited me back to his hotel room where we partied all night and really hit it off. He was hilarious and was doing impersonations and telling jokes all throughout the night. A friendship and bond was born that day.  As his career skyrocketed we kept in touch and he was always genuinely supportive and curious to what I was up to. I eventually picked up a camera and started exploring my other passion as a photographer in 2007. Chester was the first major artist that allowed me to do a portrait shoot with him and that opened doors for me professionally. Over the course of nearly decade, we continued to work together. I photographed him in children's hospitals, charity events, concerts, and promotional work for Club Tattoo."

Speaking about the run, ARCHSPIRE commented: "We'll be heading across the U.S.A. with 'Tech Trek IV,' presented by Kiesel Guitars. You can expect a crazy set from us and we'll be joined by some insane bands - WORMHOLE is some intense slamming brutal death metal from Baltimore, the extreme progressive death metal of VIRVUM, and our good pals in INFERI who shred like no one else! We'll also be announcing additional dates and some giveaways in the coming weeks, so stay tuned and Stay Tech!"

In addition to 'Tech trek IV,'  ARCHSPIRE  will be performing two local dates in British Columbia this March, in which they will be supported by THE HALLOWED CATHARSIS and BLACKWATER BURIAL.  The dates are as follows:  03/08: Victoria, BC @ Upstairs Cabaret ( TICKETS  //  EVENT PAGE ) 03/09: Nanaimo, BC @ The Cambie (TICKETS //  EVENT PAGE )  Also, ICYMI,  ARCHSPIRE  have recently premiered a series of videos on "Nail The Mix" via YouTube. The tech masters give fans an inside look at the intricacies that went into developing their latest release, 'Relentless Mutation,' which was mixed and mastered by Dave Otero. To watch the unboxing for the raw-multi tracks of "Remote Tomb Seeker," visit  THIS LOCTION . To watch the vocal effect focus clip, which features Dave Otero, visit  THIS LOCATION . To hear ARCHSPIRE guitarist Dean Lamb and Dave Otero's joint URM podcast interview, visit  THIS LOCATION .  Welcome to first class technical death metal madness. Machine gun vocals rattle remorselessly over a furious flurry of arpeggios, scales, and everything else that the two string wizards of  ARCHSPIRE  can pick at break-finger speed out their guitars. If this sounds hardly human at the level of technical execution, the Gatling-style hyper-drumming pushing these monstrous compositions forward is adding to the alien impression. It cannot even be a question that the Canadians have outdone themselves with their third full-length, 'Relentless Mutation'.  This album is simply insane in a most excellent way. The level of musicianship that ARCHSPIRE  offer, will leave even tech death fans drooling. Yet the outfit from Vancouver in British Columbia is bringing an important extra to the table, the rare ability to write great songs. 'Relentless Mutation' is not just another compilation of outstanding musicianship, but the songs come with recognisable patterns that make sense in the greater conceptual framework of the album. And a clever use of contrasts leaves moments of clarity for the listener to take a breath and get ready for the next assault.   ARCHSPIRE  exploded onto the scene in the year 2009 – after an earlier prelude under the moniker DEFENESTRATED. The band grew out of the rich Canadian scene for technical extremes that includes illustrious names such as GORGUTS or BEYOND CREATION. Yet ARCHSPIRE  set out to take the sound to the next level from the start as their debut album 'All Shall Align' (2011) made clear, which immediately received critical comparison with the scene's spearheads like OBSCURA.   The band developed a lyrical concept revolving around a dystopian science fiction universe, which was expanded on their sophomore full-length, 'The Lucid Collective' (2014) that witnessed  ARCHSPIRE  gaining widespread international recognition as one of the hottest names within the tech death community and beyond.  With 'Relentless Mutation', the Canadians are pushing the limits of their genre even further than before on all levels.  ARCHSPIRE  come crushing like a whirlwind to free ears and minds from pre-conceived notions about technical death metal. Time to leave your shelter and face the tempest. This is the future.  The cover of 'Relentless Mutation' has been painted by renowned artist Eliran Kantor already well-known in the metal world for his works for TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, and HATE ETERNAL among others.

PRISTINE Release Brand New Single

Album Available For Pre-Order: nblast.de/PristineRoadBackToRuin

Norway's finest rock outfit,  PRISTINE , has released the brand new track,  "Sinnerman" , as well as the accompanying music video. The track comes off the band's highly anticipated new album,   Road Back To Ruin  , and can be seen here:   https://youtu.be/yOgqCsR7SIQ    Commented singer and main songwriter  Heidi Solheim :  “We are very excited about releasing the first single from our upcoming album    Road Back To Ruin   ! The song '   Sinnerman   ' is the first track on the album and we wanted to have a different approach on this video than on our previous releases. Our video producer from Amodei Visual came up with a story filmed in a POV (point of view) perspective and we absolutely loved it! A fun idea and an unusual video for a rock band. The count down to the release date on April the 19th has begun!”      Road Back To Ruin   is slated for release on April 19, 2019 via  Nuclear Blast  and is now available for pre-order via this link:   http://nblast.de/PristineRoadBackToRuin    The fifth album by Norwegian rock band  PRISTINE  marks a point of evolution as well as diversification in their sound.  Heidi Solheim , Tromsö native and driving force behind the band, fuses musical as well as lyrical variety on the eleven songs that are   Road Back To Ruin   - despite the newly introduced variety this record is still unmistakably  PRISTINE .   The album title,   Road Back To Ruin  , according to the singer, came out of frustration. It's about social circumstances, in which opinions and values are shifting towards a certain direction. The separation from or the fear of "the others", being used by influential people to gain even more power. Distrust being spread and walls being built - things that have been done over and over in history and still society seems to be walking right into the same trap once again. People lacking nobleness and empathy, but are gaining hatred - something that  Heidi has feared. Hence the last line in the album's credits is:  “Take care of each other. Be generous, including and kind.”      Road Back To Ruin   was recorded at  Paradiso Studio  in Oslo, together with producer  Øyvind Gundersen  and technician  Christian Engfelt . The song  "Sinnerman"  was written during last year's tour - a real banger and the perfect opening track. The title track sounds massive and heavy, and the same can be said for  "Blind Spot"  which features an intro sung in Arabian by Syrian artist  Racha Rizk , followed by an almighty riff by  Espen Elverum Jacobsen , the band's secret weapon.  At the end of this broad musical spectrum there's  "Cause & Effect ," which features the  The Arctic Philharmonic  string orchestra and bears a certain  James Bond  feeling.

Norway's finest rock outfit, PRISTINE, has released the brand new track, "Sinnerman", as well as the accompanying music video. The track comes off the band's highly anticipated new album, Road Back To Ruin, and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/yOgqCsR7SIQ

Commented singer and main songwriter Heidi Solheim“We are very excited about releasing the first single from our upcoming album Road Back To Ruin! The song 'Sinnerman' is the first track on the album and we wanted to have a different approach on this video than on our previous releases. Our video producer from Amodei Visual came up with a story filmed in a POV (point of view) perspective and we absolutely loved it! A fun idea and an unusual video for a rock band. The count down to the release date on April the 19th has begun!” 

Road Back To Ruin is slated for release on April 19, 2019 via Nuclear Blast and is now available for pre-order via this link: http://nblast.de/PristineRoadBackToRuin

The fifth album by Norwegian rock band PRISTINE marks a point of evolution as well as diversification in their sound. Heidi Solheim, Tromsö native and driving force behind the band, fuses musical as well as lyrical variety on the eleven songs that are Road Back To Ruin - despite the newly introduced variety this record is still unmistakably PRISTINE.
 
The album title, Road Back To Ruin, according to the singer, came out of frustration. It's about social circumstances, in which opinions and values are shifting towards a certain direction. The separation from or the fear of "the others", being used by influential people to gain even more power. Distrust being spread and walls being built - things that have been done over and over in history and still society seems to be walking right into the same trap once again. People lacking nobleness and empathy, but are gaining hatred - something that Heidihas feared. Hence the last line in the album's credits is: “Take care of each other. Be generous, including and kind.”
 
Road Back To Ruin was recorded at Paradiso Studio in Oslo, together with producer Øyvind Gundersen and technician Christian Engfelt. The song "Sinnerman" was written during last year's tour - a real banger and the perfect opening track. The title track sounds massive and heavy, and the same can be said for "Blind Spot" which features an intro sung in Arabian by Syrian artist Racha Rizk, followed by an almighty riff by Espen Elverum Jacobsen, the band's secret weapon.

At the end of this broad musical spectrum there's "Cause & Effect," which features the The Arctic Philharmonic string orchestra and bears a certain James Bond feeling. The not so typical but amazing"Your Song," was inspired by NEIL YOUNG's acoustic recordings. 
 
Heidi SolheimEspen Elverum Jacobsen (guitar), Gustav Eidsvik (bass) and Ottar Tøllefsen (drums), as the core of the band, incorporate a wide variety of styles and influences with a great mutual musical understanding. Studio guests Anders Oskal and Hansi Enzesperger add a unique flourish in the form of a Hammond Organ.

2019 will see the band bring back rock to the clubs. After Detoxing (2012) and No Regret (2013) had only been released in Norway, Reboot was the first album to also see a release outside the band's home country. 2017, Ninja marked the debut for Nuclear Blast which is now followed by Road Back To Ruin.

KICKER: Pure Drivel Full-Length From Oakland Punk Unit Featuring Current/Past Members Of Neurosis, Dystopia, And Operation Ivy Out NOW And Streaming Via Tankcrimes

"   KICKER    just hits every pleasure point that you want hit from punk like this. The production is raw and dirty, the rhythms are short and driving with Dave Edwardson's walking basslines putting an extra hop in their step, and Pete just sounds like a total beast. When he snarls 'She was an axe mur-der-er! A fucking psychopath!' on 'Mrs. Arnold,' he sells it." -- BrooklynVegan    Stream / Share KICKER's  Pure Drivel  At    THIS LOCATION     Pure Drivel , the latest full-length from Oakland punk practitioners  KICKER , is out TODAY via Tankcrimes. Fronted by UK transplant Pete the Roadie along with current and former members of Neurosis, Dystopia, and Operation Ivy,  KICKER  plays UK-meets-East Bay punk rock inspired by the output of Crass, Bluurg, Mystic, and early Dischord and SST releases. The follow-up to 2016's Rendered Obsolete ,  Pure Drivel  boasts eleven rambunctious tracks in twenty-six minutes recorded at House Of Faith by Bart Thurber (Spazz) and features cover art by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste) as well as inner gatefold art by Skinner (High On Fire, Mastodon).    Stream  Pure Drivel  in its entirety at    THIS LOCATION   .     Pure Drivel  is out now digitally and on limited-edition vinyl formats in four color variations  - 100 x "Dave Ed's Hair" (pink in clear; a Tankcrimes exclusive), 100 x black, 100 x half coke bottle (a Pirates Press exclusive) and 700 x coke bottle .  For physical orders go to    THIS LOCATION   . For digital orders go    HERE   .    KICKER  was forged in 2010 one rainy night at 924 Gilman. They took refuge in the brewery bar across the street. Guitarist Mauz (Dystopia), had a room full of musical equipment and an idea for a band. Bassist Dave Edwardson (Neurosis) was looking for a new project. Pete the Roadie - who for over thirty years has roadied for the likes of Subhumans, Amebix, Jello Biafra, Neurosis, and everyone in between - swore he would never cross over to the dark side. Somehow though, he was convinced. They were all looking for something more than everyday life can provide; aging Bay Area/UK punks adapting to new pressures of modern life resilient enough to let go of the (dis)comfort of the past but bored as fuck with the present. The union would see them through three West Coast tours (including one in 2016 with the Subhumans), one European/UK tour in 2013, one East Coast/Canadian tour in 2014 .and three shows in Cuba in 2017.

"KICKER just hits every pleasure point that you want hit from punk like this. The production is raw and dirty, the rhythms are short and driving with Dave Edwardson's walking basslines putting an extra hop in their step, and Pete just sounds like a total beast. When he snarls 'She was an axe mur-der-er! A fucking psychopath!' on 'Mrs. Arnold,' he sells it." -- BrooklynVegan

KICKER was forged in 2010 one rainy night at 924 Gilman. They took refuge in the brewery bar across the street. Guitarist Mauz (Dystopia), had a room full of musical equipment and an idea for a band. Bassist Dave Edwardson (Neurosis) was looking for a new project. Pete the Roadie - who for over thirty years has roadied for the likes of Subhumans, Amebix, Jello Biafra, Neurosis, and everyone in between - swore he would never cross over to the dark side. Somehow though, he was convinced. They were all looking for something more than everyday life can provide; aging Bay Area/UK punks adapting to new pressures of modern life resilient enough to let go of the (dis)comfort of the past but bored as fuck with the present. The union would see them through three West Coast tours (including one in 2016 with the Subhumans), one European/UK tour in 2013, one East Coast/Canadian tour in 2014 .and three shows in Cuba in 2017.

BORDERS announced the release of their album "Purify" today with the first single and video for "731"

The british 4-piece debut will be released on May 10th, 2019 via Long Branch Records.

Watch the video HERE.

Tracklisting of "Purify":   1. 731  2. Wake Up  3. Damage Everything  4. Bad Blood  5. War  6. Demon's Reach  7. Nothing To Lose  8. A World Apart  9. Faded  10. Walking Dead  Hailing from Lincoln UK,  BORDERS  are pushing to lead in a new era of heavy music by seamlessly blending genres and styles to forge a crushing yet melodic and unique experience. Since joining forces with new vocalist JJ in 2016,  BORDERS  have been working hard impressing crowds across the UK and Europe with their energetic, powerful live performance. From playing sold-out hometown shows, to supporting Skindred and Whitechapel, or hitting the Tech-fest stage,  BORDERS  consistently electrify and entertain crowds. Vocalist JJ is an unchained force leading the four-piece indomitable machine onstage. Lunging from the crowd to the mic and leaving no spot unclaimed, he bends the crowd to his will with gang chants, mosh pits and room splits. While performing alongside Martyr Defiled on their UK/EU farewell tour, Metalhammer said of their live show: ‘[Borders are] boasting an energised stage presence and an armada of head-bang-inducing grooves’  Speaking out on modern issues of healthcare, austerity and corruption, the Diagnosed EP was released in 2017. It received glowing reviews from Metalhammer and other publications, as well as gaining regular radio play on Kerrang’s Fresh Blood, where Alex Baker hailed  BORDERS  as the ‘Behemoths of tomorrow’. The songwriting, catchiness, technical prowess and sheer brutality of the record were stand-out points for critics. The EP theme hits home for JJ as his lyrical content reflects his own mother’s experiences with cancer and the healthcare system. After she beat the disease with only natural remedies and lifestyle changes, JJ seeks to pose questions on trust in the healthcare system and the corporate greed that drives pharmaceutical companies to put profits before people.  After giving the world a taste of their potential,  BORDERS  are ready to unleash their debut album in 2019. " Purify " is an ambitious full-length record which documents a timeline of human corruption; from the wartime atrocities of the Japanese experimental death camps in 731, to modern day political corruption in War, all the way to a bleak vision of future potential healthcare systems in Wake Up. " Purify " is a statement on the condition of the world today, yesterday and tomorrow that not only sounds incredible but might change the way you look at the world around you. JJ muses on the development of human corruption; the barbaric human beginnings of mass slaughter against targeted groups may seem a world away to the average citizen, but not only do those atrocities still exist, but corruption and evil has further retreated and disguised itself behind closed doors. A disguise that is easily lifted with information and a willingness to challenge one's own beliefs. " Purify " is a call for a purge of corruption and a call for the average person to think more about the world they inhabit.   "Purify" is now up for pre-orders here:      https://Borders.lnk.to/Purify     Available Formats:   Long Branch Records Shop Bundle  Bandcamp Bundle  LP Edition  (140g yellow vinyl + Bandcamp download code)  CD digipack  Download  Stream

 Periphery release their fifth album, Periphery IV: HAIL STAN, on April 5 via their own 3DOT Recordings.

Sirius XM Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin debuted the album’s first single, “Blood Eagle,” yesterday. Guitar player Mark Holcomb said of the six-minute track: “We’ve known since the late stages of P4 writing sessions that ‘Blood Eagle’ would be the first song we released. It’s an unrelenting song that, even while we were writing it, we could say to ourselves: ‘We NEED to play this live.’ The original demo was vastly different, and through the songwriting process, it took on this kind of violent, explosive nature that is always hard to synthesize. That energy excited us and we knew it’d be the first thing we’d let you all hear.”

Periphery IV: HAIL STAN marks two significant firsts for the band: the first Periphery release on their recently formed label, 3DOT Recordings, as well as a change in the way they approached writing and recording. “We finally spent a year on a record,” explains guitar player/programmer Jake Bowen. “We’ve never been able to do that. The quality and pacing of the work show we took our time with this one. That’s an important note about this. We really got to do everything we wanted to do in the space we had to do it.” Mark adds, “I think you can hear the adventurous intent behind much of this material as a result. We’re all the happiest we’ve ever been with a release, and it’s no coincidence. Can’t wait for you all to hear it.”

Pre-orders, which include several limited-edition vinyl and merch bundles, are available now via https://store.3dotrecordings.com/ (physical) and digitally via iTunes (smarturl.it/hailstan_it). Digital pre-orders include an immediate download of “Blood Eagle,” which can be streamed now via Spotify (smarturl.it/bloodeagle_sp).

Periphery IV: HAIL STAN is the first release to follow the band’s 2017 GRAMMY® Award nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category, for Periphery III: Select Difficulty album opener “The Price Is Wrong.” The 2016 album tallied 35 million cumulative streams and marked their third consecutive debut in the Top 25 of the Billboard Top 200. It represented the apex of a tireless decade-long grind. Along the way, the band graced the covers of Guitar WorldRevolverModern DrummerBass Player and more. In between the touring, endorsements and appearances, they also launched a summer camp of their own, “Periphery Summer Jam.
