THE AGONIST Return With Brand New Album + Reveal First Details And Video!

"Orphans" Drops September 20th on Rodeostar Records!

More extreme, more melodic, more exciting and simply larger than life:  The Agonist  are back! Following their critically acclaimed album " Five ," released in 2016, the extreme metal juggernaut from Montreal, Canada, has released a first single and announced the first and hotly anticipated details of their brand new record, due out September 20th 2019 on  Rodeostar Records .  Says vocalist Vicky Psarakis:   "When I heard the first instrumentals for '    Orphans    ' I was a bit shocked and confused. The music was really dark and heavier than anything we've done in previous albums and I wasn't quite sure how I'd be able to match that emotion. But then you know all it took was writing one full song to get the ball rolling and 2-3 months later everything was done!    With every new album, we love to experiment and dip our toes into new territory, but there's also a lot of elements here that are reminiscent of the earlier days. You can expect a lot of hard hitting, fast-paced madness and many many blast beats! Vocally, there's a wide range of styles, some of which I tried out for the first time, and the lyrics are mostly inspired from horror stories and real-life tragedies. Events that I felt a lot of people can relate to.    '    Orphans    ' is my third album with    The Agonist    and I can't wait to show the world what we created!   We're excited to finally share the first taste with all of you... Get ready for ' In Vertigo !'"  Listen to opening track and first single “ In Vertigo ” and watch the video   HERE  !

New Jersey-based 'trap metal' outfit  CONCRETE DREAM  has shared a new track from their upcoming  self-titled debut album  in the lyric video premiere for " Buckout Road ." The song is based on the actual  Buckout Road , an infamous street in  White Plains, NY  where various urban legends have been sourced such as flesh-eating albinos, witches and murder/suicide victim hauntings, while also allegedly being the home of cannibalistic serial killer Albert Fish at one point.

New Jersey-based 'trap metal' outfit CONCRETE DREAM has shared a new track from their upcoming self-titled debut album in the lyric video premiere for "Buckout Road." The song is based on the actual Buckout Road, an infamous street in White Plains, NY where various urban legends have been sourced such as flesh-eating albinos, witches and murder/suicide victim hauntings, while also allegedly being the home of cannibalistic serial killer Albert Fish at one point.

Formed from members of varied cultural and musical backgrounds,CONCRETE DREAM brings forth a narrative of today's culture and the struggles of life that are equal parts mercy and power. "We chose a self-titled album because these stories on it come from ourselves," states vocalistJeremiah Mayhem. "There is a very personal energy that has driven the band to write and record these songs and the goal was never fame, or fortune; it's to speak to people that are in a struggle, the way other bands' stories spoke to us growing up." Scheduled for release on Friday, June 28 via E-Train Records, the album was produced by Ricky Armellino (Ice Nine Kills, This or The Apocalypse) at Think Loud Studios in York, PA.

CONCRETE DREAM will celebrate the night prior, Thursday, June 27, with a special record release party/show at The VNYL in Manhattan, NY. The event is free and open to the public starting at 9:00 PM

Death metal extremists  MISERY INDEX  will kick off their two-week long North American tour tomorrow, June 8, in Chicago, IL as direct support for NAILS. The run will conclude on June 16 in Raleigh, NC. A full list of confirmed shows can be found below.  Speaking on the upcoming tour, the band previously commented, "We are beyond stoked to hit the road on this extra-special and extra-brutal U.S. run with our friends in NAILS, DEVOURMENT, and OUTERHEAVEN.  We'll be playing a few tracks of the new record 'Rituals of Power,' as well as bringing the classic heaviness.  Come out to the shows, and LET'S GRIND."   MISERY INDEX  will be touring in support of their upcoming album 'Rituals of Power'. The album can be ordered in various formats  HERE .  MISERY INDEX (on tour w/ NAILS, DEVOURMENT, and OUTER HEAVEN):  06/08: Chicago, IL @ Metro ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/09: Detroit, MI @ The Shelter ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/10: Toronto, ON @ Opera House ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/11: Montreal, QC @ Club Soda ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/12: Boston, MA @ Middle East ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/13: Brooklyn, NY @ Music Hall of Williamsburg ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/14: Philadelphia, PA @ Union Transfer ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/15: Baltimore, MD @ Baltimore Soundstage ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/16: Raleigh, NC @ Lincoln Theater ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK )   MISERY INDEX (European Tour):  06/28: Protzen (DE) @ Protzen Open Air 06/29: Wiesbaden (DE) @ Schlachthof 06/30: Karlsruhe (DE) @ Jubez 07/01: Graz (AT) @ Club Q 07/02: Budapest (HU) @ Dürer Kert (+Whitechapel) 07/03: Kosice (SK) @ Collosseum 07/04: Trutnov (CZ) @ Obscene Extreme 07/05: Roskilde (DK) @ Roskilde Fest 07/06: Hamburg (DE) @ Monkey's Club 07/07: Aachen (DE) @ Musikbunker 07/08: Nijmegen (NL) @ Merleyn 07/09: Hannover (DE) @ LUX 07/10: München (DE) @ Backstage (+Napalm Death) 07/11: Budweis (CZ) @ MC Fabrika 07/12: Torgau (DE) @ In Flammen   MISERY INDEX  have recently released a brand new video for the track 'Naysayer'. The video is streaming via the official Season of Mist  YouTube  channel  HERE !   MISERY INDEX  return furiously with their brand new album, 'Rituals of Power'! With their sixth full-length, the American icons of hard hitting brutality display the strength of maturity grown out of the experience gained as a relentless touring machine. The general trend of their continuous evolution to incorporate less core elements and move towards classic death metal finds a new high water mark.  When their debut EP 'Overthrow' was recorded in 2001 by vocalist and bassist Jason Netherton (ex-DYING FETUS) together with (then) guitarist and vocalist Mike Harrison and drummer Kevin Talley (ex-DYING FETUS),  MISERY INDEX  immediately charted a course to explore and push the limits of Death Metal and Grindcore, drawing influence from bands like MORBID ANGEL, NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER, BOLT THROWER and ENTOMBED. The erstwhile project shifted to a full time band when guitarist Sparky Voyles (ex-DYING FETUS) joined.  In 2003,  MISERY INDEX  unleashed their first full-length 'Retaliate', to exceptional reviews and followed by numerous support tours and festivals in Europe and North America. After several line-up changes, second album 'Discordia' was released in 2006 with even more touring in its wake. Their third full-length, 'Traitors' (2008) reaped raving reactions from both critics and fans and saw the band on the road again until 2009. Then MISERY INDEX  dropped 'Heirs to Thievery' (2010) like a bomb on the Death Metal masses, shattering all expectations. The album was both a commercial and critical success, elevating the band to headlining slots. During that year, long time guitarist Sparky Voyles was replaced by Darin Morris.  A string of shows and festivals around the globe followed and on the Munich date of 'Full of Hate Tour' alongside CANNIBAL CORPSE, BEHEMOTH and LEGION OF THE DAMNED, the band recorded their first live album. Released early 2013, 'Live in Munich' perfectly epitomized the rawness and ferocity that  MISERY INDEX  elevated onto a new level with their fifth full length "The Killing Gods" in 2014.   Now with "Rituals of Power", revolving around the concept of “truth”,  MISERY INDEX  are back with nine crushing tracks which tackle how 'truth' has been constructed and molded throughout history as a means to uphold power, regimes and ideologies. Brace, hold tight and run for cover, the wrath of  MISERY INDEX  is upon us and they are more furious than they've ever been.

Should be a fun night for anyone in L.A. who likes their music loud and bent."

DARKTHRONE DEBUT NEW TRACK “DUKE OF GLOAT" AHEAD OF THE RELEASE OF THEIR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW STUDIO ALBUM, OLD STAR, ON FRIDAY MAY 31ST

Darkthrone, having given fans a taster of their new studio album Old Star with the Fenriz penned, “The Hardship Of The Scots” (LISTEN HERE), the band have revealed a second new song to make the wait until release day just a little bit more bearable! The animated clip also features a new fate from Old Star album cover artist Chadwick Saint John (https://www.inkshadows.com/)

Ted “Nocturno Culto” Skjellum comments "’Duke Of Gloat’ was the first I wrote for this album. I like my metal black, with a dose of heavy. Now with Old Star coming your way let me wish you all a sore neck!"

The legendary Norwegian longstanding partnership of Fenriz and Ted “Nocturno Culto” Skjellum, return with   Old Star  , their first studio album since 2016’s hugely popular  Arctic Thunder . With a mastery and endless dedication to the art of the riff, they cut through 6 new epic tracks, taking in the best of the old school of heavy & extreme metal plus a large dose of doom-laden riffing, & channelling it through the grime of the underground.  Fenriz enthuses  «Old star – again we are here with THE RIFFS! A while after our previous ARCTIC THUNDER album it became apparent that we would continue in that same style, BLACK OLD HEAVY METAL with slow thrash, classic doom and slow death metal.    As many have focussed on the 70s sound over the last 20 years, the mix on our new album has ended up being more 80s than ever. The songs are more metal than ever! Ted's songs have alot of black metal in them, faster and slower but also doomier parts and reocurring parts. My songs are more linear written, it’s an ancient 80s underground trick, with breaks, all slow heavy or slow thrash, classic doom or slow death.»   He continues  «All in all it is our most 80s album so far and our most metal one to date with drum sound typical for the 80s USA/German market and damned lyrics, which are all written by me. We feel that OLD STAR is the big brother of ARCTIC THUNDER. More solid and with even better riffs.»     Old Star   was recorded at the band’s Necrohell 2 Studios, with engineering and production duties carried out by vocalist/guitarist Nocturno Culto, complemented with a perfectly organic mix courtesy of Sanford Parker (Voivod) at Hypercube Studios, & mastered once more by Jack Control at Enormous Door. The stellar cover artistry comes courtesy of Chadwick St John, titled “The Shepherd of the Deep”.  Over the course of 30 years, Norway’s Darkthrone has become a staple of the global black metal genre, forging a legacy as one of the most renowned and influential bands in its illustrious & often infamous history. In the formative years following their 1987 inception, Darkthrone initially started with a strong concoction of thrash & then death/doom metal experimentation, with broader musical influences spanning from the 60s to the 80s, before the debut album  Soulside Journey  was unleashed in 1991. Never ones to follow convention or stand still even then, the band soon embraced a much darker, more primitive form of expression with the now iconic second album  A Blaze in the Northern Sky , & the rest became history.

The original STATIC-X line-up from the platinum-selling 1999 debut full-length album, Wisconsin Death Trip - bassist Tony Campos, guitarist Koichi Fukuda and drummer Ken Jay - have joined forces with the mysterious, masked vocalist Xer0 to pay tribute to Wayne.

"Our intention is to pay ultimate respect to Wayne and to celebrate the music that has been in all of our hearts for more than 20 years," says Campos. "It's all about channeling the vibe from 1999 to the best of our ability and playing those classic STATIC-X songs live and loud."

The band is also working on a new album, Project Regeneration, which is a treasure chest of vocal performances and musical compositions left behind by Wayne. For the unfinished tracks, the STATIC-X is inviting several of their friends to lend their voices for the completion of this very personal project.

Watch a clip of STATIC-X performing the cult classic "Bled for Days" with Xer0 on vocals here: https://youtu.be/_340zcRUO5g.

LIGHT THIS CITY Announces First European Tour Dates Confirmed For September

[photo by Joe Ellis]  Bay Area melodic death metal outfit LIGHT THIS CITY announces the band's first ever European tour, confirmed for the end of summer, as the band continues to support of their acclaimed Terminal Bloom LP, released last year through Creator-Destructor Records.  Terminal Bloom, LIGHT THIS CITY's first album in a decade, boasts ten tracks that capture their tendency towards extreme melody and intensity, honoring the Swedish sounds of the '90s. Having spent the past decade performing and touring in numerous other bands, the five members of LIGHT THIS CITY have only honed and shaped their skills and musicianship since their 2008-released Stormchaser. Terminal Bloom was recorded from December 2017 through February 2018 with Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Fallujah) at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, California, as with their previous four albums, and is wrapped in the vibrant cover artwork of Tony Midi.  Following several tours throughout the US and Canada, as well as their first tour of Mexico, and a recent tour of Japan, LIGHT THIS CITY now confirms their maiden trip across the Atlantic. The band's European Bloom Part 1 trek will begin September 12th and run through Germany, Denmark, Holland, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland, coming to an end on September 21st. Watch for additional tour dates to be announced in the months ahead as the band continues to book new ventures.  Drummer Ben Murray states, "We couldn't be more excited to finally bring our thrash attack to Europe! This is just part 1 of our plan to tour Europe, as we'll be announcing another run early next year. If you live in one of these cities, we hope you make it out to one of the shows! It's been fifteen years since we began as a band, and we've wanted to get to Europe the whole time. See you in September!"   See the LIGHT THIS CITY's official video for "Agents Of Fate" and more via YouTube  RIGHT HERE.    Terminal Bloom is available on CD, LP, and digital formats now through Creator-Destructor Records. Find order options at the label webstore  HERE  and Bandcamp where the album is streaming  HERE .

Magazine's Terminal Bloom review included, "The idea of a band coming back from hiatus after so long can be daunting, but LIGHT THIS CITY have returned with more energy than when they left. Terminal Bloom is the record fans of the band have been waiting so long to hear and the ideal situation for a re-emerging artist." Revolver Magazine offered, "Having spent the past ten years recording and touring with various side projects... the death-dealers have no time for playing catch-up; instead, the five-piece get right to the melodic, riff-filled goodness we've been craving since '08." Metal Injection stated, "I was surprised to find that LIGHT THIS CITY have a more varied sound than ever. I worry some will write this band off for their time in the early 2000's metalcore scene, but this album is waaaaaaaaay more than that." Bravewords proclaimed, "Channeling the best Sweden has to offer, specifically a whole lot of Arch Enemy with a healthy dose of At The Gates and The Haunted, along with a sprinkling of UK greatness a la Carcass, into a vicious American assault, LIGHT THIS CITY unleash a serious shit-kicking with these ten new tracks. There aren't enough accolades to bestow upon vocalist Laura Nichol; she's commanding, ferocious, intense, profound. And her band deserves just as much respect!"   https://www.facebook.com/Light-This-City-12498861242     https://www.instagram.com/lightthiscity_official     http://www.creator-destructor.com     http://www.facebook.com/creatordestructorrecords     http://www.twitter.com/CD_Records     http://www.creator-destructor.bandcamp.com

The  STRAY CATS  will release  40 --their first new album in 26 years--this  Friday, May 24  on the heels of three singles they've recently issued from the album: " Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me)," "Rock It Off"  and  "Cry Danger,"  the latter of which was premiered this past Friday at  Guitar World .    Brian Setzer  (guitar, vocals),  Lee Rocker  (bass, vocals) and  Slim Jim Phantom  (drums, vocals)--original founding members of the iconic and acclaimed American rock and roll trio--are celebrating their  40th anniversary  in  2019  with  40  and a tour that's hitting the  U.S . and  Europe  (*see tour dates below). The album is being released by  Surfdog Records  and distributed by  BMG  (CD, vinyl, digital), with an exclusive indie-store edition of the album--colored vinyl, with a double-sided 24x12 poster--arriving on  May 24.  " Cat Fight (Over A Dog Like Me)," "Rock It Off"  and "Cry Danger"  are available now as instant grat tracks with a pre-order of the  album .  The all revved up and red-hot  STRAY CATS  recorded  40  at  Blackbird Studios  in  Nashville  in late  2018  following their first North American shows in 10 years, with four concerts including sold-out headlining shows in  Las Vegas  and the  PacificAmphitheatre  in  Costa   Mesa ,  CA  before wildly enthusiastic audiences. Still buzzing from the thrill of playing together again and the crowd response, they went into the studio with producer  Peter Collins  (Rush, Bon Jovi, The Brian Setzer Orchestra) and engineer  Vance Powell  (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Arctic Monkeys). There are a dozen original songs that comprise the album. Read the first press release about the album  here , which includes quotes from the band and the track listing.

Early critical acclaim for  40  is rolling in:   "The album brims with bracing, stripped-down rockers like 'Cat Fight (Over a Dog Like Me),' 'Mean Pickin' Mama' and 'Devil Train,' and every track boasts a widescreen riff and virtuoso guitar solo. But the band also serves up some new sounds with the riff rocker 'Cry Danger' (co-written with Mike Campbell) and the punk-like 'I'll Be Looking Out for You.'"    --Joe Bosso,    Guitar Player   , May 2019    "Four decades later, Stray Cats are ready to 'Rock It Off' with the same three basic ingredients they've always used: Setzer's twangy Gretsch guitar, drummer Slim Jim Phantom's elemental thumping and Lee Rocker's expertly slapped upright bass...On the standout 'Cry Danger,' the Cats venture out of their '50s comfort zone and move boldly into '60s garage-rock territory. The track features an intro guitar riff that'll make any Beatles fan instantly think of 'Day Tripper.'"    --Kenneth Partridge,    Billboard   , 4/25/19   The  STRAY CATS  begin their select U.S. dates presented by  SiriusXM  on  August 3 on the heels of June and July overseas shows.
