REVOCATION To Kick Off North American Headlining Tour With Exhumed, Rivers Of Nihil, And Yautja

 Next week,  REVOCATION  will kick off their long-awaited North American headlining tour. The trek will begin September 17th and run through October 20th. Support will be provided by Exhumed, Rivers Of Nihil, and Yautja. See all confirmed dates below.     REVOCATION  will be touring in support of their upcoming album,  The Outer Ones . Set for release on September 28th via Metal Blade Records,  The Outer Ones  sees the band pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever before. "I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date," states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. "Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route, they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries."  Moving away from the societal and historical themes that informed 2016's  Great Is Our Sin , this time Davidson has immersed himself in the fantastic, evoking one of the great writers of the sci-fi/horror genre. "The title is my ode to H. P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well."  For preorders and to view the band's video for "Of Unworldly Origin," directed by David Brodsky, visit  metalblade.com/revocation .   "If you've ever wondered what it feels like to be dough flattened out by a rolling pin, here's your chance to find out." -- MetalSucks on The Outer Ones title track    http://www.revocationband.com   http://www.facebook.com/revocation   http://www.twitter.com/revocation   http://www.youtube.com/officialrevocation

SET AND SETTING: BrooklynVegan Premieres "Wandering Tribulation" From Florida Post-Rock Instrumentalists

Tabula RasaRelease Day Nears

                                                            [Photo by Matt Valler]  Stream / Share SET AND SETTING's "Wandering Tribulation" At    THIS LOCATION         Tabula Rasa , the compelling new full-length from Florida post-rock instrumentalists  SET AND SETTING , will see release next month via Pelagic Records. In advance of its unveiling, BrooklynVegan is currently streaming "Wandering Tribulation."  Writes the esteemed blog of the track, "[ SET AND SETTING ] are still working in the same general post-rock realm as usual on this album, but the metallic influences are a lot stronger...  Decibel compared the first single ['Ecdysis'] to Gojira, and you can hear some towering Isis-style riffs on the new song, as well as searing, classic rock guitar solos that the band says were influenced by Pink Floyd... "  Notes guitarist Shane Handal, "This is the second movement of a long song but felt it stood alone as its own track. It  starts and ends with a Gilmour worship guitar solo, which we've never really done before and shows a quieter side of the album."   Take in "Wandering Tribulation" courtesy of BrooklynVegan at    THIS LOCATION   .    If you missed it, sample first single "Ecdysis"    HERE   .   The nine-track  Tabula Rasa  was recorded and mixed by Ryan Haft (Torche, Wrong) in Miami, Florida, and is inarguably the band's heaviest album to date and first under the Pelagic Records banner. "We purposely tried to extend the boundaries of our sound by adding more extreme metal and punk influences all while still sounding like ourselves," notes Handal. Fans of Russian Circles, Pink Floyd, Pelican, Mono, Alcest, Pg.Lost, and This Will Destroy You pay heed.   SET AND SETTING's  Tabula Rasa  will be available and CD, LP, and digital formats via Pelagic Records on October 12th. For preorders in North America go to    THIS LOCATION   , in Europe go    HERE   , and in Australia go    HERE   . Desirers of the digital edition can visit    THIS LOCATION   .    SET AND SETTING  merge instrumental rock with a thick metallic edge with elements of drone and ambient music, the end result rendering a "captivating, wordless, genre amalgam (Decibel)." Since their debut album  Equanimity  (2013), the quartet has been ceaselessly active throughout the underground and extreme music scenes in the US and Canada. In 2014,  SET AND SETTING released their second album,  A Vivid Memory , via Prosthetic Records and continued to tour internationally and locally with bands such as Mouth Of The Architect, Eyehategod, Inter Arma, and Kayo Dot. 2016 brought a tough year of writing and recording while battling injuries within the band thus limiting live performances. One year later however the band released  Reflectionless . Stereogum championed a record of, "melancholic beauty suspended in the clouds with a birds-eye view of epic terrain...," further hailing its, "soul-searing leads and shimmering, bending guitars that convey feelings of wonder and introspection." Alternative Press concurred, "This quartet has a gorgeous and unexpectedly heavy sound." The record led to  SET AND SETTING 's first ever tour of Europe which included an appearance at the renowned Dunk! Festival.   "   SET AND SETTING    continues to push themselves forward and in heavier directions...The moods on the song vary, ranging from melancholic post-rock to heavier, almost Gojira-esque sections. An emotive melody runs through the song, assuring that something is always happening." -- Decibel on "Ecdysis"    http://www.facebook.com/setandsetting   http://twitter.com/setandsetting   http://www.instagram.com/setandsetting   https://pelagic-records.com   https://www.facebook.com/pelagicrecords   http://www.instagram.com/pelagic_records

Dark Folk Artist AMIGO THE DEVIL Reveals Electric Track, "Everyone Gets Left Behind"

Featuring Prophets of Rage Drummer Brad Wilk

Listen Now via Consequence of Sound's Heavy Consequence

New Album, Everything Is Fine, out October 19, 2018 via Regime Music Group

 If you've ever heard a room full of people yelling "I hope your husband dies" in a some harmoniously sloppy, drunken unison, you've probably stumbled into an  AMIGO THE DEVIL  show. Danny Kiranos, better known to the masses as his musical counterpart  AMIGO THE DEVIL , has been challenging the expectations of traditional folk, country music purists, and rock/extreme metal fans alike with his morbid, dark, yet oddly romantic take on folk that has amassed a dedicated and cult like fan-base.  Today,  AMIGO THE DEVIL  has premiered the electric, rock-driven new track, "Everyone Gets Left Behind" - featuring  Prophets of Rage  drummer Brad Wilk - with  Consequence of Sound's Heavy Consequence . Listen to the track here:  https://consequenceofsound.net/2018/09/amigo-the-devil-everyone-gets-left-behind-brad-wilk-stream/   "Everyone Gets Left Behind" is cut from  AMIGO THE DEVIL 's upcoming full-length album,   Everything Is Fine  , out October 19, 2018 via Regime Music Group. The album is currently available for pre-order online at  www.shopbenchmark.com/regime/   In his interview with  Heavy Consequence ,  AMIGO THE DEVIL  comments about "Everyone Gets Left Behind":  "You ever wake up still drunk, spins worse than Wheel of Fortune and your blood feels like it's boiling? Yeah, me neither... but how frustrating to know that a year ago, something like that would be so easy to power through? Although a hangover is where the idea of the song started, it's not where it ended. The core of the song is easy, growing up was a mistake. I don't mean a mistake as in something regrettable, but more as a consequence of time... something we didn't mean to do. It's so easy to look into the past and think how much better everything was, but how much of that is because we've already lived it and subconsciously know that it worked out? In the end, I wanted it to be a modern day "memento mori" type deal where everyone should remember their mortality, their youth, their whatever the middle part is. Tracking this song in itself was such a blast that I almost forgot what a grumpy bastard I can be sometimes."     Everything Is Fine   was produced by Ross Robinson ( Korn, Glassjaw, At The Drive In ) and features drummer Brad Wilk ( Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Prophets of Rage ) sitting in on the entire recording session. The album was recorded at Valentine Studios, a time capsule untouched since the 70's with all the original gear and atmosphere. Everything was recorded, mixed and mastered to tape to capture an absolute and pure brutal honesty.   AMIGO THE DEVIL  will be embarking on a national tour in support of the new record. Despite being armed with only his vocals and a banjo/acoustic guitar, the live show is worlds away from what people expect of a folk show. Loaded with sing-alongs and an unsuspecting dose of humor to make otherwise grim topics accessible for fans of every genre, the songs remain deeply rooted in the tradition of story-telling that seems to be slipping away from the human condition. It is a must see show this Fall! Check out tour dates here or see below.

The album was recorded at Valentine Studios, a time capsule untouched since the 70's with all the original gear and atmosphere. Everything was recorded, mixed and mastered to tape to capture an absolute and pure brutal honesty.

AMIGO THE DEVIL will be embarking on a national tour in support of the new record. Despite being armed with only his vocals and a banjo/acoustic guitar, the live show is worlds away from what people expect of a folk show. Loaded with sing-alongs and an unsuspecting dose of humor to make otherwise grim topics accessible for fans of every genre, the songs remain deeply rooted in the tradition of story-telling that seems to be slipping away from the human condition. It is a must see show this Fall! Check out tour dates here or see below.

Fit For A King's New Album Dark Skies Sets the Bar High.

      Texas bands keep putting out some killer music. On September 14, 2018  FIT FOR A KING  will be releasing their new album titled  DARK SKIES . If the title is any indication, with vocalist Ryan’s explanation, this album “touches on many subjects relevant to all of our daily lives”. Known as being honest and straightforward in their musical and lyrical approach, Fit For A King will be pleasing many fans with this release.       Currently, there has been five singles released:  Oblivion ,  When Everything Means Nothing ,  Tower of Pain ,  The Price of Agony , and  Backbreaker . These songs give the listener a great preview of what the band has to offer. But it doesn’t stop there. One of my favorite songs is track one  Engraved . The soft tender intro is quite misleading of what happens next, bringing in slippery smooth guitar riffs and sing along anthemic choruses makes it a quick earworm. But that seems to be the case with this album. The songs are structured to be memorable and groovy, giving fans something to move to, whether that is in the circle pit or nodding your head along with the beat.       Lyrically, Fit For A King doesn’t stray from tough topics, such as division of the human race, be it globally or locally on the song  The Price of Agony . Or the pain of self destructiveness discussed on the song  Oblivion . Not an easy subject to cover, but the power both of song and lyrics give a cathartic release which is a welcome. Many of the topics covered deal with inner turmoil and struggle, yet give hope and strength to push through barriers. As a whole, there is much to gain from this album, which will make it that much more meaningful with each listen.   Fans can pre-order  Dark Skies  digitally on  iTunes  and physically on  MerchNow    Tracklisting:  1. Engraved  2. The Price Of Agony  3. Backbreaker  4. Anthem of the Defeated  5. When Everything Means Nothing  6. Youth | Division  7. Shattered Glass  8. Tower of Pain  9. Debts of the Soul  10. Oblivion

SOULFLY release single for title-track of new album, "Ritual"

 Metal icons  SOULFLY  are set to release their devastating new album   Ritual,   on October 19 via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band has unleashed the second single from that release, this time in the form of a 360º video. Check out the tribal influenced, groove laden title-track, here:  https://youtu.be/z2LHZs7xx-w   Comments vocalist/guitarist  Max Cavalera : "This song took a long time and almost didn't make the record. We recorded it as an instrumental and ran out of time in the studio. We ended up having to fly Josh Wilbur (producer) out to my house to finish the vocals. He kept on telling me he wanted more of that 'tribal shit' like some of the stuff on our first record and 'Primitive'. We ended up creating the chorus on the spot and layering something like 12 or 16 tracks of chanting for it. After we heard it and were listening back, we got really excited and were high-fiving each other. Josh just turned to me and said that was what he wanted to hear as a fan, and he was really happy to get that out of me. We both knew it was a new  SOULFLY  classic for the ages and had to be the album opener. I'm really proud of this song and I think old-school fans of my work are going to love it."    Check out the first single from   Ritual  , "Evil Empowered", at this location ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB7gYzoVUQw ).

ATRAMENT: "Odium" Streaming At Decibel Magazine

Scum SectLP From Bay Area Crust Outfit With Vastum, Necrot, Mortuous, Abstracter Ties Nears Release

 Decibel Magazine is now streaming "Odium," the new single from Bay Area crust outfit  ATRAMENT , founded by current and former members of Vastum, Necrot, Mortuous, Abstracter, Moral Void, Black September, and more. The band is preparing to issue their malicious second album,  Scum Sect , in late September through a coalition of underground labels including Sentient Ruin Laboratories, Caligari Records, and Blood Harvest Records.   ATRAMENT  returns with  Scum Sect , a thirty-minute offering of sprawling hostility and of marvelously regressed sonic barbarism. Fusing together crust/anarcho punk, black and death metal with classic Swedish d-Beat,  ATRAMENT  draws influence from bands like Doom, Discharge, Deviated Instinct, Skitsystem, Craft, Darkthrone, and Dismember to instate widespread terror and summon total sonic warfare.  Scum Sect  was recorded at Earhammer Studios by Greg Wilkinson (Vastum, Noothgrush, Autopsy), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Vallenfyre, Full Of Hell), and completed with nightmarish artwork by dark surrealism master Stephen Wilson.  The band offers, " Scum Sect  is ferocious punk, fueled by death, and crashing straight into the depths of Hell.  ATRAMENT 's music is about rejecting humanity in its every aspect and embracing instead all the vermin, diseases, plagues, and calamities which oppose it." Of the new single "Odium" they declare, "The song is an ode to vengeance..."  Decibel's write-up agrees: "That description is pretty apt... 'Odium' shows exactly those qualities, by adding potent strains of death and black metal into an already filthy pot of D-beat, crust and anarcho-punk."   Hear   ATRAMENT's "Odium" through Decibel Magazine at  THIS LOCATION .    Scum Sect  will see release on LP, CD, cassette, and digital formats September 28th; fans of Wolfpack/Wolfbrigade, Skitsystem, Gehenna, Vallenfyre, and Acephalix, tune in.  Find US LP, digital, and cassette preorders at Sentient Ruin Laboratories   HERE  , cassette preorders at Caligari Records   HERE  , and European LP and CD preorders at Blood Harvest Records   HERE  . Watch for additional audio samples from the album to be released in the days ahead.  Formed by vocalist Mattia Alagna (Abstracter), guitarist James Meyer (Abstracter, Vale, ex-Moral Void, ex-Black September), bassist Sam Carr-Prindle, and drummer Chad Galey (Necrot, Mortuous, ex-Vastum),  ATRAMENT  first appeared in 2015 with their infamously wretched two-song demo tape, following up the next year with their proper full-length album,  Eternal Downfall , released in 2016 by Argento Records in Europe and Broken Limbs Recordings in the US.  Eternal Downfall  first introduced the full spectrum of  ATRAMENT 's bludgeoning sonic weapon: a maelstrom of incredibly dark, negative, and hateful crust punk driven by a barrage of crushing d-beat drumming and laced with the deadliest strains of primal death metal and of the most cancerous raw black metal.  Now,  ATRAMENT  has re-emerged with  Scum Sect , their most vile and malevolent music to date. Within the total chaos and endless destruction of these harrowing thirty minutes, the listener will face a world riddled with plague and torment that appears hopeless and torn as an utter firestorm of crashing d-beats, shrapnel-infused riffs, and abhorrent atmospheres is unleashed upon them with methodical hostility. Thematically and lyrically with  Scum Sect ,  ATRAMENT  covers themes of nihilism and misanthropy, rejecting humanity in its every aspect and embracing instead all the vermin, diseases, plagues and calamities which affect humanity and which it attempts to constantly destroy and fight in its own parasitic quest for survival.   https://atrament.bandcamp.com    https://www.facebook.com/blackatrament    https://www.instagram.com/atramentdeathpunx    http://sentientruin.com    http://www.caligarirecords.com    http://www.bloodharvest.se

LIGHT THIS CITY Confirms Eastern US/Canada Tour Dates

With Gygax In Support Of Terminal Bloom LP, Out Now Through Creator-Destructor Records

 Bay Area melodic death metal outfit  LIGHT THIS CITY  has confirmed a run of East Coast North American tour dates for November.  With  Terminal Bloom , the band's first album in a decade,  LIGHT THIS CITY  returns with ten tracks that capture the band's tendency towards extreme melody and intensity, honoring the Swedish sound 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.  These shows will be  LIGHT THIS CITY 's first performances outside of the West Coast since the band's rebirth, as they continue to support their acclaimed  Terminal Bloom  LP. Running from November 6th through November 11th,  LIGHT THIS CITY  will trample through Cleveland, Toronto, Montreal, Brooklyn, Worcester, and Philadelphia, with support from Creator-Destructor labelmates Gygax for the entire run. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 31st at 10am EST.    Stream   LIGHT THIS CITY's  Terminal Bloom  LP at  THIS LOCATION  and see   the official video for   "Agents Of Fate"  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   HERE  .   LIGHT THIS CITY Eastern US/Canada Tour w/ Gygax:   11/06/2018 The Foundry - Cleveland, OH  11/07/2018 Hard Luck Bar - Toronto, ON  11/08/2018 Katakombs - Montreal, QC  11/09/2018 Gold Sounds Bar - Brooklyn, NY  11/10/2018 Ralph's Diner - Worcester, MA  11/11/2018 The Fire - Philadelphia, PA  Exclaim! Magazine's review of  Terminal Bloom  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."  New Noise Magazine's interview included, Combining the relentless riffage of thrash with the memorable guitar hooks of melodic metal is still the band's modus operandi. Their early Metallica and '90s-era In Flames influences are work proudly on their sleeves, but after ten years of playing in other bands,  LIGHT THIS CITY  know what they want and how they want it." 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!" Dead Rhetoric's 9/10 review included, "An exceptional return from one of American metal's top underdogs, perhaps 2018 will give  LIGHT THIS CITY  the praise they have deserved. This is uncompromising, breakneck melodic death/thrash that consistently delivers memorable guitar heroics and triumphant melodies alongside visceral carnage.  Terminal Bloom  is a winner."   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

Pop-Metal Prodigies A LIGHT DIVIDED Reveal Drum Playthrough for "Fear of Heights"

Watch Here via Gear Gods

 Choose Your Own Adventure out October 5, 2018 | Pre-Order Here

 

 Fast-rising pop-metal group  A LIGHT DIVIDED  will release their upcoming full-length album,   Choose Your Own Adventure  , on October 5, 2018. Chock full of catchy, memorable anthems that poise  A LIGHT DIVIDED  to be the next big pop/metal crossover,   Choose Your Own Adventure   is an essential listen.   Choose Your Own Adventure   is available for pre-order now in  physical  and  digital  formats.  Today,  A LIGHT DIVIDED  drummer Adam Smith is pleased to reveal his playthrough of the lead single, "Fear of Heights". The playthrough video can be viewed via  Gear Gods  here:  http://geargods.net/premiere/a-light-divided-fear-of-heights-exclusive-playthrough/   Smith says,  "My first rule is to not over-do it. My thinking was, what can be done to really drive the song without being over-done. That's how we landed on the verses, which is a really solid rhythm but with several different fills to help keep it moving but interesting. I've tried to do more with switching hands and using rudiments more throughout songs, which is something I haven't done a lot before. I know it's sort of weird, but some of the stuff we did on this song, and really the whole record, is way outside of my safe zone but still very much my style and personality.       Production-wise, we spent a lot of time going back and really making sure everything percussion related existed for the betterment of the song as a whole. We stripped stuff out but also found ways to add cool features in other parts. Really, that's our main focus - make the best song possible. So, don't get married to what you're playing in the beginning too much because it might not ultimately make the cut if it doesn't serve that purpose."

City Of Thieves Release Video For New Single "Reality Bites"

Debut Album "Beast Reality" Available October 12th via Frontiers Music Srl

 ' Reality Bites ' is the third single from the long awaited debut album by London based power trio  City Of Thieves , entitled " Beast   Reality ".  The album will be released on  October 12th  via  Frontiers Music Srl .  Watch the video  HERE .  Pre-order " Beast   Reality " and stream the current singles HERE:  http://radi.al/BeastReality   The band on ' Reality Bites' : "We're so excited to get this single out. It's one of the most unique songs on the album and was the last written for it, so much so we were actually still finishing it when we went into the studio. We had the chorus and it was so catchy we knew we couldn't leave it off, so included it on our 'A' list even though it wasn't finished!"  The single also boasts a memorable video, of which they say "We have a great history of making videos with Loop TV. We had a meeting where we ended up talking about our favourite movies.  We had so many films in common that we constructed a universe for the video which contained nods to some of them. We wanted to make something where the band always played the main protagonists, so we all appear as different characters in every scene and the video features four alternate worlds with varying degrees of dystopian degeneration based on various technologies. We hope people will watch it several times to catch all the Easter eggs we've hidden!"  The buzz began spreading about  City Of Thieves  as soon as they made their initial debut in 2015, with early Planet Rock Radio playlist support for a now deleted EP release plus festival slots at the likes of  Ramblin' Man Fair ,  Bloodstock ,  Camden Rocks ,  Hard Rock Hell  and  Planet Rockstock .   Initially a four-piece, they slimmed down to a power trio of core members before entering the studio to record " Beast Reality ", which sees the band working with Toby Jepson (Little Angels, The Answer, The Virginmarys). Singer/bassist Jamie Lailey praises the acclaimed artist/producer, explaining that:  "we knew what we wanted to do and could have released a ton of material out of the gate. Toby took what we had and refined it. I'm glad we sat back and digested things with him, as it was a major turning point for the band. With Jepson at the helm, Mike Fraser on mixing duties and mastering by Simon Francis (Kodaline, Kaiser Chiefs, Primal Scream), the group's first full length record was in the best of hands.  Having confirmed autumn shows in London and at Hard Rock Hell XII in Pwllheli to promote the album,  City Of Thieves are also lining up a national support tour to be announced shortly.  All three group members also have successful music related business interests outside of the band, with drummer Will Richards running the London Drumstick Company and bassist Ben Austwick and Lailey founding Team Beats Ltd. Lailey has also become a regular on the poker scene, playing tournaments and cash games in some of London's top casinos. His Instagram features videos and shots of casinos all over the world, from London to Manila to Macau.

FAROOQ brings their new release HEAT to the musically starved; plus an exclusive interview

       Every once in a while there comes a band that’ll put out an album that will just blown your mind and get you pumped for the pit.  FAROOQ are that band. On Aug 24, 2018 they will be releasing their new album HEAT on Glacier Recordings.        At the start of pushing play, the entire album sparks the violent reaction of energy and emotion that I have sorely missed from music these days.  Being a fan of hardcore and metal music, Farooq effortlessly blends these two genres to perfection while also being unique in their sound, by adding elements of hip hop and guitar wizardry.  The album is simple, but yet it isn’t which is hard t explain. The groove and balls to the wall attitude are genuine and forefront. Yet there are layers of complexity in terms of lyrics and musicianship.         Their latest single titled  Stone Cold Steve Hawking  is a perfect example of just how thought invoking they can be; tackling topics of religion using metaphorical scientific references. All the while you get pummeled by metallic riff driven guitars, down trodden bass and arm flinging drumming.        Their precious single happens to one of my favorite song off this release.   Owning It  has the speed, anger, beat downs and chaos that makes me want to get in the pit and lose my mind, not giving a fuck how old I am.         This album easily makes my top ten in recent memory. I can’t thank FAROOQ enough for making an album that just blows my mind and makes me hopeful that the music I love is left in good and capable hands.      https://youtu.be/kHIz01qSt7g     Tracklisting:    1. Owning It    2. Get 2 Work    3. T.O.T.W. 2018    4. Mall Metal    5. The Story    6. Clown Clocks    7. One Nation Under    8. E-Male    9. It’s 2AM Somewhere    10. Stone Cold Steve Hawking    You can find Faroog online at the following:     https://www.instagram.com/farooqmosh      https://www.facebook.com/farooqmosh      https://farooqmosh.bandcamp.com      http://www.glacierrecordings.com      https://www.facebook.com/glacierrecordings    CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEW WITH  VOCALIST DANIEL DOMINGUEZ III BELOW:  First, thank you for taking time out to talk with us today.                  Thank you for having us.          •       You are able to blend different elements in your music, mainly hardcore and metal, and have made a melting pot of energy for fans to go crazy with; was this your intent in your musical direction?    Daniel- Yes. When Phil (Guitar) and I started writing music together we decided to not get bogged down under all of the pretentious sub-genre trash and just write what we like. Once we added Eric (drums) I knew we were going to have a style of our own. Eric has written some of our coolest guitar parts over the years. Whenever I personally put songs together, write riffs, or lyrics; I’m doing it with the goal of getting a reaction out of the rest of the guys. Our only criteria is that we all enjoy playing it and listening to it. If we can enjoy doing this, it should not be hard for people watching us to enjoy it as well.          •       Your newest single  Stone Cold Steve Hawking  just premiered this last week, in which the topic is pretty bleak, is this a cumulation of where you think the human race is heading? Or a reflection of where we came from and will continue towards?      Daniel- The subject matter stems from conversations Eric would lead us in during long drives. He always has some interesting things to talk about.  The instrumental we made for this song called for something different. I wanted to tell a story. We always need to have more to it than just riffs and aggression, so I asked Eric for some suggestions and he sends me this long wild text about humanity being at this critical stage of evolution and how the sun will eventually die leaving no trace of life at all. He expressed to me how small humanity, history, religion and politics on earth really are because there will be no trace we ever existed when the sun finally dies. When I read “the sun will die” I thought about how in religious texts there was a rather famous son that died for his followers lives. I decided to tie them together to show how even the most powerful organized religion will not be able to withstand the power of the true giant, the red giant that the sun will become.          •       Your new album   Heat   will be released on Aug 24, how were you able to turn out a new album so fast, since you just released your last album July 2017?    Daniel-  We love to write music. Phil, Eric and I all enjoy writing guitar riffs and expanding on what we’re able to do. We started writing new songs for “The Faction” as soon as our first album “The Truth” was released in 2013. By the end of 2014 we had another 12 songs written and were ready to record by late 2015. The Faction was recorded in December of 2015 but didn’t see release until 2017 because we wanted to make sure we put out the best quality songs and beautiful physical copies within our budget.  We had been itching to write new songs since 2015. When Keith Glacier asked in August 2017 if we could have an album ready to record by April of 2018 we jumped at the challenge. I was confident in the technical, organizational and creative skills Phil posses, the ability Eric has to create and collaborate on drum parts as well as my passion and mind for composition, lyrics and overall creativity.           •       Did you change anything in particular on   Heat   compared to   The Faction  ?    Daniel-  I feel like musically we continued our evolution, rather than made any particular changes. Brandon, who had been our first official bass player moved to guitar, which is his first instrument and we were also able to add Adam as our new bass player. We recorded The Faction on our own, at home as a 4 piece with Brandon on bass. Heat was recorded in studio with Zack Ohren as a 5 piece and because of that, the quality has definitely evolved as well.           •       Listening to your music feels like a sonic boom, your sound encapsulates a live pulsating feel, when you write songs, do you think of how it will translate live?    Daniel-  Absolutely. Once we start playing what we wrote together, we are able to feel which parts may benefit from change in order to engage a live crowd more. We also have parts in our set where we may change how a song is played on the fly based on how the crowd is reacting, so parts may get slowed down, pauses might be longer, Phil, or Eric might address the crowd without a mic in front of them, anything can happen! The reaction from a live crowd is a big part of what Farooq and Heat is all about.          •       Also, with this new record, do you feel like you have harnessed the sound you have been aiming for?     Daniel-  Zack and Keith were amazing guides when it came to the proper tones to bring our guitar and bass parts to another level. The quality Zack brings to the table is exactly why he’s done work on our last two consecutive albums. We are all very happy with how this new record sounds and can’t wait to start writing another one. As for the musicality, we definitely have cemented our style and process.  However, part of our whole energy revolves around questioning the status quo and pushing the creative envelope. I know for myself, vocally, I’m better than I’ve ever been, but I still feel like there's so much more to learn and master.           •       You have a short tour coming up, is there any plans that you can talk about for after that?    Daniel- We plan to do as many weekend runs to the surrounding states as possible after we get back from this 11 day/8 state tour. We have music videos in the works as well.  There are other things we have our eyes on, but those will be for a future conversation.          •       What has been your favorite part of being a musician and playing music?     Daniel- The guys love to travel, see new places, eat and judge the inferior Mexican food from all the other states that aren’t California.   My personal favorite thing is meeting people who our music has helped or inspired.          •       What would you want people to know about Farooq that they might not be aware of?     Daniel-  We get asked a lot about the name. The 3 original members (Phil, Eric and I) grew up watching WWF Wrestling during the Attitude Era. The name was inspired by Ron Simmons AKA “Faarooq”. The dude is a total badass all around and he brought such an aggressive and strong energy to the name. We chose the spelling “Farooq” after learning that translated from an Arabic it means things like “the redeemer” and “one who discerns the truth from falsehood”. The name fit the theme of the lyrics and was an homage to one of the greatest to ever compete in the squared circle.          •       Any last parting words for the fans?    Daniel- Thank you for your support and for growing this Faction we call Farooq.   

     Every once in a while there comes a band that’ll put out an album that will just blown your mind and get you pumped for the pit.  FAROOQ are that band. On Aug 24, 2018 they will be releasing their new album HEAT on Glacier Recordings.

    At the start of pushing play, the entire album sparks the violent reaction of energy and emotion that I have sorely missed from music these days.  Being a fan of hardcore and metal music, Farooq effortlessly blends these two genres to perfection while also being unique in their sound, by adding elements of hip hop and guitar wizardry.  The album is simple, but yet it isn’t which is hard t explain. The groove and balls to the wall attitude are genuine and forefront. Yet there are layers of complexity in terms of lyrics and musicianship.

    Their latest single titled Stone Cold Steve Hawking is a perfect example of just how thought invoking they can be; tackling topics of religion using metaphorical scientific references. All the while you get pummeled by metallic riff driven guitars, down trodden bass and arm flinging drumming.

    Their precious single happens to one of my favorite song off this release.  Owning It has the speed, anger, beat downs and chaos that makes me want to get in the pit and lose my mind, not giving a fuck how old I am.

    This album easily makes my top ten in recent memory. I can’t thank FAROOQ enough for making an album that just blows my mind and makes me hopeful that the music I love is left in good and capable hands.

        •       Your newest single Stone Cold Steve Hawking just premiered this last week, in which the topic is pretty bleak, is this a cumulation of where you think the human race is heading? Or a reflection of where we came from and will continue towards?

    Daniel- The subject matter stems from conversations Eric would lead us in during long drives. He always has some interesting things to talk about.  The instrumental we made for this song called for something different. I wanted to tell a story. We always need to have more to it than just riffs and aggression, so I asked Eric for some suggestions and he sends me this long wild text about humanity being at this critical stage of evolution and how the sun will eventually die leaving no trace of life at all. He expressed to me how small humanity, history, religion and politics on earth really are because there will be no trace we ever existed when the sun finally dies. When I read “the sun will die” I thought about how in religious texts there was a rather famous son that died for his followers lives. I decided to tie them together to show how even the most powerful organized religion will not be able to withstand the power of the true giant, the red giant that the sun will become.

        •       Your new album Heat will be released on Aug 24, how were you able to turn out a new album so fast, since you just released your last album July 2017?

  Daniel-  We love to write music. Phil, Eric and I all enjoy writing guitar riffs and expanding on what we’re able to do. We started writing new songs for “The Faction” as soon as our first album “The Truth” was released in 2013. By the end of 2014 we had another 12 songs written and were ready to record by late 2015. The Faction was recorded in December of 2015 but didn’t see release until 2017 because we wanted to make sure we put out the best quality songs and beautiful physical copies within our budget.

We had been itching to write new songs since 2015. When Keith Glacier asked in August 2017 if we could have an album ready to record by April of 2018 we jumped at the challenge. I was confident in the technical, organizational and creative skills Phil posses, the ability Eric has to create and collaborate on drum parts as well as my passion and mind for composition, lyrics and overall creativity. 

        •       Did you change anything in particular on Heat compared to The Faction?

  Daniel-  I feel like musically we continued our evolution, rather than made any particular changes. Brandon, who had been our first official bass player moved to guitar, which is his first instrument and we were also able to add Adam as our new bass player. We recorded The Faction on our own, at home as a 4 piece with Brandon on bass. Heat was recorded in studio with Zack Ohren as a 5 piece and because of that, the quality has definitely evolved as well. 

        •       Listening to your music feels like a sonic boom, your sound encapsulates a live pulsating feel, when you write songs, do you think of how it will translate live?

  Daniel-  Absolutely. Once we start playing what we wrote together, we are able to feel which parts may benefit from change in order to engage a live crowd more. We also have parts in our set where we may change how a song is played on the fly based on how the crowd is reacting, so parts may get slowed down, pauses might be longer, Phil, or Eric might address the crowd without a mic in front of them, anything can happen! The reaction from a live crowd is a big part of what Farooq and Heat is all about.

        •       Also, with this new record, do you feel like you have harnessed the sound you have been aiming for?

   Daniel-  Zack and Keith were amazing guides when it came to the proper tones to bring our guitar and bass parts to another level. The quality Zack brings to the table is exactly why he’s done work on our last two consecutive albums. We are all very happy with how this new record sounds and can’t wait to start writing another one. As for the musicality, we definitely have cemented our style and process.  However, part of our whole energy revolves around questioning the status quo and pushing the creative envelope. I know for myself, vocally, I’m better than I’ve ever been, but I still feel like there's so much more to learn and master. 

        •       You have a short tour coming up, is there any plans that you can talk about for after that?

  Daniel- We plan to do as many weekend runs to the surrounding states as possible after we get back from this 11 day/8 state tour. We have music videos in the works as well.

There are other things we have our eyes on, but those will be for a future conversation.

        •       What has been your favorite part of being a musician and playing music?

   Daniel- The guys love to travel, see new places, eat and judge the inferior Mexican food from all the other states that aren’t California. 

My personal favorite thing is meeting people who our music has helped or inspired.

        •       What would you want people to know about Farooq that they might not be aware of?

   Daniel-  We get asked a lot about the name. The 3 original members (Phil, Eric and I) grew up watching WWF Wrestling during the Attitude Era. The name was inspired by Ron Simmons AKA “Faarooq”. The dude is a total badass all around and he brought such an aggressive and strong energy to the name. We chose the spelling “Farooq” after learning that translated from an Arabic it means things like “the redeemer” and “one who discerns the truth from falsehood”. The name fit the theme of the lyrics and was an homage to one of the greatest to ever compete in the squared circle.

        •       Any last parting words for the fans?

  Daniel- Thank you for your support and for growing this Faction we call Farooq.

 

JESUS PIECE Issues "Punish" At Cvlt Nation

Only Self Debut LP Nears Release Through Southern Lord

                                                            [photo by Amy Ha]  Philadelphia's  JESUS PIECE  premieres their new single "Punish" through Cvlt Nation, as the band's Only Self  debut LP nears release later this month via Southern Lord.   Only Self  was recorded in Chicago at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Like Rats, Dead In The Dirt) mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Xibalba), and completed with artwork by Dom Pabon.  With the premiere of "Punish," Cvlt Nation declares, "It was a long wait for a full length from  JESUS  PIECE . This record was absolutely worth the wait.  Only Self  is hardcore music at its finest. The songwriting, the metallic production, the lyrical content - it's all so cohesive. When I first learned who JP was, I was glued to the internet for a few weeks watching live videos of a band that is uncompromisingly heavy. It's a beautiful thing when a band's live reputation stacks up to their album. This release is the next chapter in what will hopefully be a reign of unending terror for years to come."   JESUS PIECE  vocalist Aaron Heard simply offers, "'Punish' is aggression."   Stream "Punish" from JESUS PIECE at  THIS LOCATION .   Southern Lord will release  Only Self  on CD, LP, and digital formats on Friday, August 24th. Find digital preorders at Bandcamp where "Curse Of The Serpent" and "Neuroprison" are streaming  HERE  , and find physical preorder options   HERE  .  A band which works tirelessly to play to everyone they can, the anthems of  JESUS PIECE  tackle topics of personal struggle and loss, to socio-political matters including racism, police brutality, and other injustices. The band formed in 2015 and self-released their first demo/EP in the same year, followed by a self-released EP in the Summer of 2016. Bridge Nine Records released a split 7" between  JESUS PIECE  and Malice At The Palace in early 2017. The band has paved their own way into the national scene by booking multiple headlining coast-to-coast tours among many bouts of regional touring and performances at notable festivals including This Is Hardcore, Nature World Fest, Sound And Fury, FYA Fest, and others.   JESUS PIECE  is quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage. With the brutalizing grooves of Disembodied, Turmoil, Harm's Way, and labelmates Xibalba, the band incorporates elements of noise, ominous tones, and haunting atmospheres into their dynamic songwriting. With crushing, modern production, the eleven new tracks on their  Only Self  debut LP place  JESUS PIECE  among the scene's darkest and heaviest acts and delivers one of the most anxiously-awaited albums of the hardcore/metal underground this year with  Only Self , a record which proves itself as one of the year's most vicious releases.   JESUS PIECE  has toured mercilessly alongside Darkest Hour, Comeback Kid, Burn, Knocked Loose, Terror, Vein, Year Of The Knife, and many more across North America and Europe over the past year, and just made their vicious return to This Is Hardcore.

SOULFLY reveal new album details and release new single

Pre-order now available in multiple formats!

 Metal icons  SOULFLY  are set to release their devastating new album   Ritual,   on October 19 via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band is pleased to reveal the first single from that soon to be landmark release. Check out "Evil Empowered", here ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB7gYzoVUQw ).  Comments guitarist/vocalist  Max Cavalera : “I am really stoked to be working again with two of my favorite artists,  Eliran Kantor  and  Marcelo Vasco ! The   Ritual   artwork is very mystic and captures the vibe of the album perfectly. For this one, we really tried to retain the groove of early  SOULFLY  as well as my love for the heavy, fast stuff I’m into: like death and black metal and some hardcore. Working with  Josh Wilbur  for  SOULFLY  this time around has been amazing. He’s a huge fan and added a lot to the record. I would fight for the fast songs and he would always push me to add more groove. I think in the end we created a really cool mix of songs that covers a lot of ground in my career. Let the   Ritual   begin!”  Producer  Josh Wilbur  adds:  "Before I had ever recorded a record, in my formidable years,  Max  released the holy trinity that was (at least to me)   Chaos A.D.  ,  Roots , and   Soulfly 1  . I wanted to make a record that captured what I loved about those when I was growing up! Those records inspired me and introduced me to heavy metal. Fast forward to now and I was given the opportunity to make the record I wanted as an fan! So I set up some mics, recorded some riffs, we banged on some galvanized metal, roto toms, djembes, and anything else we could get, then I told Max to 'BRING DA SHIT'!"      Ritual   was produced, recorded and mixed by  Josh Wilbur  ( KILLER BE KILLED ,  LAMB OF GOD ,  GOJIRA).  Cover artwork was painted by artist  Eliran Kantor  ( TESTAMENT ,  ICED EARTH ,  SODOM ). Additional booklet art was handled by  Marcelo Vasco  ( SLAYER ,  HATEBREED ,  KREATOR ), who also handled the package design.
