Tech-Death Icons GOROD Release Lyric Video for Title Track "Aethra"

Watch Here

New Full-Length Album, Aethra, out October 19, 2018 via Overpowered Records

Pre-Orders Available Now via Amazon | iTunes | Google Play

Technical metal icons  GOROD  recently announced their upcoming 10-track album,   Aethra  , set to be released on October 19, 2018 via their new international label,Overpowered Records. The album is available to pre-order digitally via  Amazon ,  iTunes  and  Google Play , and in several physical formats via Overpowered Records'  merchandise site .  Today,  GOROD  revealed a brand new lyric video for the album's title track, "Aethra", available to view now via the band's YouTube channel:  https://youtu.be/BdpP-aAZhjs   Vocalist Julien Deyres says about the track:  "'Aethra' refers precisely to the complexity of naming, especially when it comes to distant entities both in space and time. Indeed, even among historians, the name Aethra is debated. Some see her as the mother of Theseus, others as Hyperion's wife, mother of Helios, Selene and Eos. The subject that actually caught my attention for this album is that of an Aethra (more frequently called Theia) who would be the mother of the moon. Moreover, there is a scientific theory mentioning that an asteroid collided with the Earth which left us a fragment that is still turning around us, and that appears and disappears completely every 28 days. Aethra is therefore the missing mother who left us the corpse of her offspring in orbit as a memory of the tragedy... but the purpose of the lyrics remains here to leave you all a personal 'substantial part of fantasy'!"   More recent videos from  GOROD :  "The Sentry" track stream:  https://youtu.be/ZTDP0Em9k5Q   Behind-the-scenes   Aethra   guitar + bass tracking video:  https://youtu.be/4-DbEVS1RYs   Behind-the-scenes   Aethra   drum tracking video:  https://youtu.be/2GUvzXdNg_Q     Aethra   album teaser:  https://youtu.be/_aifeqTfHxk   Produced and recorded by  GOROD  guitarist/mastermind Mathieu Pascal in his own Bud Studio, mixed at Dugout Studio by the outstanding Daniel Bergstrand ( Meshuggah, Behemoth, Decapitated, In    Flames ) and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory at Obey Mastering ( Decapitated, Nightrage ),   Aethra   is a profound progression in terms of production, songwriting and arrangements.  With   Aethra  ,  GOROD  transports the listener to a tragic and melancholic universe - a completely new level of darkness - while preserving what  GOROD  considers their tried and true core sound: incomparable groove, remarkable dexterity, and relentless technicality. But all the while, the band never sacrifices earworm hooks and unforgettable riffage.    Aethra  track listing:   1) Wolfsmond  2) Bekhten's Curse  3) Aethra  4) The Sentry  5) Hina  6) And the Moon Turned Black  7) Chandra and the Maiden  8) Goddess of Dirt  9) Inexorable  10) A Light Unseen  Vocalist Julien Deyres explains the concept behind   Aethra  ,  "The moon: a star, an allegory, a universal symbol that concerns all peoples and eras... this is the central theme of the lyrical concept of this album which is divided into ten texts that follow a form of parity in terms of genres: four titles are devoted to female lunar deities, four to male deities. The remaining two are respectively dealing with the universal symbolism of the owl and the star itself.    The concept is basically a study of different cults associated with the moon through the ages and peoples. Some themes are treated in a purely narrative way, some others in a more philosophical or poetic way, but generally it remains a personal reading of each myth, which aims to awaken critical thought as much as evasion."   As a live band through and through,  GOROD  plan to bring their trademark power and precision to North America on a full tour in support of   Aethra  . Before coming to the states,  GOROD  will tour in Europe and the UK with headliners  Beyond Creation , as well as fellow support artists  Entheos  and  Brought By Pain .

SOFY MAJOR: French Noise Rock Trio To Release Total Dump LP In The US Via Corpse Flower Records This January

New Track Streaming + Preorders Available

French noise rock trio  SOFY MAJOR  will unleash their long-awaited fourth full-length this January! Titled  Total Dump , the follow-up to 2015's triumphant  Waste  LP was recorded and mixed by Dave Curran (Unsane, Big Business) at Black Box Studios, mastered by Carl Saff (Fu Manchu, Rosetta, KEN mode, Child Bite) at Saff Mastering, and delivers eleven rocked out, Big-Muff-powered tracks of relentlessly raw, driving, melody. Fans of Unsane, Harvey Milk, The Jesus Lizard, Coliseum, and the like pay heed.   Total Dump  will be released January 25th on limited edition vinyl via Corpse Flower Records with Deadlight Entertainment and Antena Krzyku handling the CD and vinyl releases in Europe respectively. Corpse Flower's vinyl edition will come in three color variants - 100 gold, 100 mustard yellow with baby blue splatter and 100 half tan/half sea blue.   Sample first single, "Strike," via the Corpse Flower Bandcamp page at    THIS LOCATION    where preorders are currently available.     Total Dump  Track Listing:   1. Total Dump  2. Giant Crush Crash  3. Cream It  4. Strike  5. The Jerk  6. Shinny Happy Asshole  7. Franky Butthole  8. Tumor-O-Rama  9. Kerosene Mike  10. Panamarama  11. The Longest Yard   Total Dump  is the latest testament to  SOFY MAJOR 's ability to explore and evolve without losing its identity. Here, the band offer up what is undoubtedly their best songs to date and although every band will say that about their new record,  SOFY MAJOR  lives by it.  The creation of  Total Dump  was anything but easy. As the saying goes though, shit happens, and sometimes it happens in a big way whether it is on a personal or global level, hence the title... But the history of  SOFY MAJOR  has always been riddled with obstacles and setbacks and this time, the band could rely on a rejuvenated and solidified lineup to gut it out and enjoy a fruitful, creative process. All of this showed once they entered the studio, where sound wizard Dave Curran captured the magic. And it will show on stage. Following hundreds of shows across Europe, the UK, and the US, alongside Unsane, Pigs, Baroness, Big Business, Kylesa, and so many others,  SOFY MAJOR  is eager to deafen the masses again in 2019. Stay tuned for tour announcements in the weeks to come.

Following hundreds of shows across Europe, the UK, and the US, alongside Unsane, Pigs, Baroness, Big Business, Kylesa, and so many others, SOFY MAJOR is eager to deafen the masses again in 2019. Stay tuned for tour announcements in the weeks to come.

SOFY MAJOR:

Mathieu - drums
Tom - guitars
Mathieu - bass, vocals

Northward     It was during the 'All Star Jam' at  Progpower  USA Festival in 2007, when current  NIGHTWISH  singer  Floor Jansen  and  PAGAN'S MIND  guitarist  Jorn Viggo Lofstad  spontaneously joined forces on stage for some cover songs and noticed the creative magic between them. Although the two musicians had never met before, they soon discovered their mutual love for stripped down hard rock and decided to write some songs together. In 2008 still barely knowing each other, they composed an entire album's worth of material in next to no time. But due to their tight schedules with their main bands, their new project named  NORTHWARD  never found its way into the spotlight - until this day!  In 2017, the year of  NIGHTWISH 's break,  Floor  took the opportunity to contact her old friend Jorn Viggo  again, to see if he was still interested in resurrecting  NORTHWARD  - and of course he was!  "Jørn Viggo was positive about the project and we started to make the overall plans, meeting again in March of 2017 in Sweden to go through all the material together to see if we still felt happy with what we had created",  remembers  Floor Jansen.    Stepping free from all boundaries  NORTHWARD 's sound is strong, euphoric and straight in the tradition of  SKUNK ANANSIE ,  FOO FIGHTERS  and  ALTER BRIDGE  but also older bands such as  DEEP PURPLE  and  LED ZEPPELIN,  the music gets straight to the point and makes no compromises.   With the help of producer  Jacob Hansen  ( VOLBEAT  etc.), who mixed the record, they forged a raw diamond composed of heavy riffs and  Floor 's incomparable voice, free from influences of the musicians' main bands. And although the songs had originally been written in 2008, they feel as fresh and alive upon a second hearing, as they had on the very first day of their creation.  "The music is melodic, but also in your face and kick ass rock. Cool riffs, good melodies, tasteful arrangements. We would simply like to call it 'Good Music'" , comments Floor. She goes on to add:  "We wanted to explore a stripped down sound, with drums, bass, guitar and vocals. Not the heavy layers of keyboards, choirs etc."   Alongside  Floor Jansen  and  Jorn Viggo Lofstad, Morty Black  ( TNT ) took on bass duties, while drums were handled by  Jango  Nilsen and  Stian Kristoffersen  ( PAGAN'S MIND ). You will also hear a guest appearance by  Floor 's sister  Irene Jansen,  singing a duet on the song " Drifting Islands" . And finally,  Ronny Tegner  from  PAGAN'S MIND  played the piano on a track.      This year,  NORTHWARD  is ready to break free.  Floor   Jansen  states:  "We are happy and exited to be able to release this rock album under Nuclear Blast’s name. They accepted the challenge of bringing this non metal album into the world by believing in us as musicians, and also for the pure love for music that sounds good to them. We have both put our heart and soul into this album. We are very proud of it and we cant wait to show it to you all!"

Mesmerizing New Album, Ways We Haunt, out November 9, 2018

Pre-Order: Digital | Physical/Merch

Produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Scale The Summit, The Contortionist)

Winston-Salem, NC-based progressive/experimental rock/metal quartet  STELLAR CIRCUITS  will release their upcoming album,   Ways We Haunt  , out November 9, 2018. The album was produced by renowned producer Jamie King ( Between The Buried And Me, Scale The Summit, The Contortionist ), and is available for pre-orders in  digital  and  physical/merch  formats. Select tracks are also available for streaming via Spotify.  Today,  STELLAR CIRCUITS  has revealed the first of several new video blogs running in advance of the release of   Ways We Haunt  , detailing concepts behind the lyrical content, behind-the-scenes footage of recording, and more. Watch episode one here:  https://youtu.be/gpFUV3jxVLo   Vocalist Bed Beddick says in the first video blog:  "A theme [of the album] that really just started to emerge was - things changing. In particular things being lost.... I think for me a lot of writing this album was dealing with losing things... things in life that you really love that you want to hold onto... that you wish could last forever. But unfortunately, the best things in life are the people that we love and they aren't always going to be around. A big part of writing this album for me was trying to grow as a person and come to terms with life changing like that - shifts in your own personal paradigm."    While online, check out more video content from STELLAR CIRCUITS:   - "Go With Your Ghost" music video:  https://youtu.be/-nYnSYIPkss  (directed/edited by Erez Bader ( Veil of Maya, The Contortionist ), with cinematography from Justin Reich ( Black Label Society, The Browning )  - "Go With Your Ghost" guitar and bass playthrough:  https://youtu.be/adBCzntyvPA   - "Nocturnal Visitor" track:  https://youtu.be/G4N2R4nKjvM    STELLAR CIRCUITS  recently announced their upcoming album release tour, kicking off with their album release show on November 2 at The RamKat in Winston-Salem, NC. The tour will visit several other southeastern U.S. cities, coming to an end in Greenville, SC on November 17. The band will also perform on two select shows in October. See below for a full listing of tour dates:   STELLAR CIRCUITS Tour Dates:   10/21 - Greensboro, NC @ Blind Tiger  10/27 - Spartanburg, SC @ Ground Zero  11/2 - Winston-Salem, NC @ The RamKat  11/9 - Nashville, TN @ Little Harpeth Brewing  11/10 - Huntsville, AL @ Sidetracks Music Hall  11/11 - Memphis, TN @ Growlers  11/13 - Columbus, GA @ Soho  11/14 - Orlando, FL @ Uncle Lou's  **NEW DATE!   11/15 - Sarasota, FL @ 5 O'Clock Club  11/16 - New Port Richey, FL @ The Verona  11/17 - Greenville, SC @ Radio Room   STELLAR CIRCUITS  have been churning out massive soundscapes of rock and metal - chock full of the elements of progressive/experimental rock and metal that fans of the genre love with none of the tired fluff in between. In addition to those elements,   Ways We Haunt  incorporates influences from the outer-sphere of metal and rock, past and present, reflecting out-of-the-box artists like  A Perfect Circle ,  Karnivool ,  Between The Buried And Me ,  The Contortionist  and beyond.   STELLAR CIRCUITS  formed in 2015 with the idea of creating progressively-minded music that resonates with the masses. The name "Stellar Circuits" is derived from the eight-circuit model of consciousness, a theory proposed in the 1970's about expanding consciousness and understanding the process of our mind as it pertains to existentialism. Although the music revolves heavily around introspection and self-reflection, this is also coupled with the importance of aesthetics and groove.  Creating music both intellectual and visceral,  STELLAR CIRCUITS  is nothing short of a vehicle - transporting the listener to places both chaotic and cathartic.    Ways We Haunt  track listing:   1. Nocturnal Visitor  2. Skylights  3. Fell Under A Spell  4. Sleepless Goddess  5. Lose the Forest for the Trees  6. Rorschach  7. Go With Your Ghost  8. Matrioshka  9. Goblin Valley  10.

TREMONTI RELEASES LYRIC VIDEO FOR LATEST SINGLE “TRUST” FROM THE ALBUM A DYING MACHINE

Currently Touring The Globe In Support Of Latest Release     A Dying Machine  Novel By Mark Tremonti And John Shirley Now Shipping  and Can Be Ordered at  www.MarkTremonti.com         Rockers  Tremonti  have just released a lyric video for the second single from the band’s Napalm Records release, A Dying Machine. “Trust” recently impacted Active Rock radio and now the lyric video is available and can be seen here:  https://youtu.be/qi-yR4T2ytI . The video contains background footage from the band’s recent European tour including their massive set from Graspop as well as opening for Iron Maiden.   A Dying Machine  was released on June 8th and stormed the US sales charts giving the group their fourth Top 10 on the Independent Current Album Chart.  A Dying Machine landed at #2 on the Top Hard Music Albums, #3 on the Record Label Independent Current Album, #7 Top Internet, #12 Top Current Artists and #57 on the Billboard Top 200. The album also shot up the iTunes chart hitting #3 on the Top Rock Albums and #6 on Top Overall Albums when it was released. The latest single “Trust” is currently impacting Active Rock radio. The album is available for purchase here:  http://smarturl.it/ADyingMachine . The band is currently on tour in the United States in support of the new album and the winter European tour was recently announced. All ticket and tour information can be found at:  https://www.marktremonti.com/#shows .   A Dying Machine  is the first concept album of Mark Tremonti’s career and the music is inspired by a story that came to Mark while on the last Alter Bridge tour. The story takes place at the turn of the next century where humans and fabricated beings called “vessels” are trying to co-exist. The novel for  A Dying Machine  that was written by Mark Tremonti and John Shirley has begun shipping to fans that pre-ordered the book. The release of the novel marks the first work of fiction completed by Tremonti, another career milestone for him. The book has been getting rave reviews from fans for the story and very few copies of the first-pressing remain. Fans that still want to order a copy of the novel can go to  http://www.marktremonti.com  to purchase.  After two decades at the forefront of all things guitar, a GRAMMY ®  Award win, 40 million-plus units sold between Alter Bridge, Creed, and his eponymous Tremonti, and countless other accolades, Mark Tremonti once again summited an uncharted creative peak in 2018. For the very first time, the guitarist and singer crafted an immersive concept and accompanying novel for Tremonti’s fourth full-length album and first for Napalm Records, A Dying Machine. Since emerging in 2012, he and his bandmates - Eric Friedman [guitar, bass] and Garrett Whitlock [drums] - have built the foundation for such an ambitious statement. Their full-length debut All I Was bowed in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart and Top 30 of the Top 200. The 2015 follow-up Cauterize hit the #1 spot on the Top Rock Albums chart on iTunes when it was released. 2015 saw the frontman take home “Best Guitarist” at the Loudwire Music Awards just a year removed from his 2014 “Riff Lord” win at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods. In between sold out headline gigs and festival appearances everywhere from Rock on the Range to Shiprocked!, 2016’s Dust maintained that momentum. With A Dying Machine, Tremonti reaches new heights like never before.

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

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.

    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.

  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.

 

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. The album features multiple guests including  Randy Blythe  ( LAMB OF GOD ) and  Ross Dolan ( IMMOLATION ).

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 KILLEDLAMB OF GODGOJIRA). Cover artwork was painted by artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENTICED EARTHSODOM). Additional booklet art was handled by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYERHATEBREEDKREATOR), who also handled the package design. The album features multiple guests including Randy Blythe (LAMB OF GOD) and Ross Dolan(IMMOLATION).

MELODIC METAL TRAILBLAZERS AMARANTHE RELEASE "365" SINGLE + VIDEO

NEW STUDIO ALBUM HELIX OUT OCTOBER 19 VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS

BAND REVEALS SINGLE + ALBUM ARTWORK

Four albums into their career,  Amaranthe  have racked up north of 118 million YouTube views and half-a-billion song streams, have landed at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart three times, and possess a panoply of gold and platinum discs for albums and singles alike.  With their electrifying fifth album   Helix   due out  October 19  through  Spinefarm Records  and armed with new singer  Nils Molin ,  Amaranthe  take another leap forward in their sonic evolution.    Helix   proves the band has refined its melodic sensibilities ever further while retaining a cutting-edge metal assault. The band is as massively aggressive as ever and the first single " 365 " is the perfect example of such - its seductively velvety mix of contemporary pop and modern metal will take up residence in your brain for days.  Watch the " 365 " video which was exclusively premiered by  Loudwire   HERE .  Stream + download " 365 "  HERE .  "And so the time is finally NOW! We have been itching to release this monster of a track - '365' represents the  Amaranthe  sound in every conceivable way," commented guitarist  Olof Mörck . "The foundation is the heaviest and most down-tuned soundscape we have produced to date, from the bone-crunching guitars and drums, all the way to the juggernaut keyboards kicking off the song. The '365' video was shot with Patric Ulleaus to perfectly counterpoint the take-no-prisoners approach of the song, undeniably demonstrating the unity and chemistry of the  Amaranthe  lineup."  He added, "The   Helix   album itself is a statement, a declaration and an assertion that we are here to stay, and that the songwriting and musicianship has been honed and maximized to the highest level yet on an  Amaranthe  record. The process of composing this album with Elize [Ryd] was as inspiring as it was smooth, and from a composer's and arranger's perspective, a dream collaboration. The time is nigh, the die is cast, and all the stars are right: the   Helix   will steamroll across the globe, and in its wake, the touring machine that is  Amaranthe  will conquer all!"  Vocalist and composer  Elize Ryd  offered her take, saying, "  Helix   describes the concept of how the past forms us and how life makes us become. No excuses, no regrets. We express the challenges and the uplifting moments in time, and all that in between with the sounds that we love. We want to dedicate this album to all the fighters and friends out there."    HELIX    TRACK LISTING:   "The Score"  "365"  "Inferno"  "Countdown"  "Helix"  "Dream"  "GG6"  "Breakthrough Stardust"  "My Haven"  "Iconic"  "Unified"  "Momentum"  In support of the new album,  Amaranthe  will embark on a European Tour with Powerwolf in October and November. All tour dates  HERE .

ALTER BRIDGE RELEASE LIVE MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE FIRST PERFORMANCE EVER OF “WORDS DARKER THAN THEIR WINGS” FROM THEIR CAREER-DEFINING CONCERT

FEATURING THE PARALLAX ORCHESTRA LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL                                                                             https://youtu.be/fTvJ1TYORJg

Performance Taken From The Complete Concert Event Scheduled For Release Worldwide On September 7 Via Napalm Records    Now Available for Pre-Order In Various Audio And Video Configurations at http://smarturl.it/LiveFromTRAH  &  www.alterbridge.com      Coming on the heels of the announcement of  Alter Bridge’s  career-defining live release Live At The Royal Albert Hall Featuring the Parallax Orchestra, the band is releasing another video from the live performance. The latest track being released, “Words Darker Than Their Wings,” is a song from the band’s 2010 ABIII album that, until those two shows in October 2017, had never been previously performed live. The longtime crowd favorite showcases the first time that Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti share lead vocal duties, something that would be repeated on “Waters Rising” from the Fortress release. The video for the track can be seen here:  https://youtu.be/fTvJ1TYORJg  and the audio is available via all streaming partners.   “’Words Darker Than Their Wings’ was a song that we never played before ever and its been one of our favorites, especially me and Scott Phillips. That’s been one of our top 3 Alter Bridge songs since we wrote it and its just one of those songs that we have been trying and trying and trying to play live and Myles is always kind of pushing back about it and finally, you know with this orchestra he [Myles] said this is the perfect time to do it. We did and it was the biggest reaction of both nights,” explains Mark Tremonti in the full-length movie of the concert.   After 14 years performing together, five full-length studio albums, and countless sold-out shows around the globe,  Alter Bridge  is releasing the epic  Live At The Royal Albert Hall  on September 7th via Napalm Records. The live album and DVD was recorded in October 2017 when the band performed two sold-out shows at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall backed by the 52-piece Parallax Orchestra led by conductor Simon Dobson.  Live At The Royal Albert Hall  is a 21-song collection that features some of  Alter Bridge’s  biggest hits, fan favorites and even a couple of rarities. Songs like “Before Tomorrow Comes,” “Ghost Of Days Gone By,” “The Last Hero,” and “Broken Wings” all find new life with the unique arrangements presented by Dobson and the Parallax Orchestra performing with the band. The pre-order for the release is live and fans can order various audio and video configurations including Blu-Ray, DVD, CD and Vinyl as well as other unique bundles with exclusive content. The pre-order is currently live here:  http://smarturl.it/LiveFromTRAH  and at  www.alterbridge.com . A portion of the proceeds from all sales will go to the Future Song Foundation; an organization that Myles Kennedy is closely involved with.
