SONIC SYNDICATE Releases Official ‘Before You Finally Break’ Music Video feat. SOILWORK’s Björn ‘Speed’ Strid!

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, Featured, New Music, News, Previews, Releases, Videos with tags , , , , , , , on June 11, 2014 by Randy

Anglo-Swedish modern metal powerhouse SONIC SYNDICATE have released the official music video for the second single, ‘Before You Finally Break’, off the band’s upcoming self-titled, fifth album.

 


The clip was shot by renowned director Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, CHILDREN OF BODOM, uvm) and features SOILWORK singer Björn ‘Speed’ Strid on guest vocals. Check it out at http://smarturl.it/SoSyBYFB

 

Commented singer Nathan James Biggs„I’m honored to call Speed a friend. I’ve been a big SOILWORK fan for years. Those guys were a massive hand in crafting that trademark Swedish sound so it made perfect sense to ask Speed when we knew we wanted to do a song with guest vocals. Performance wise I think we have similar styles and execution, but at the same time we both have our own thing going on so the voices compliment each other to great effect. My idea was also to have a real battle between our vocals. I hate it when you have these “featuring” songs and the guest just pops up for a chorus and then does backing vocals for a while in the verse or something. This is a real fight between us for the mic and I’m sure people are gonna appreciate that.“

Bjorn “Speed” Strid adds:

“Working with Sonic Syndicate is always a pleasure, whether it’s in the studio, tour, or in a cool looking abandoned car shop in the industrial area of Gothenburg. I loved recording vocals on this song and especially being able to do somewhat of a duet with Nathan Biggs. He’s a truly talented singer and a good friend. Doing the video was easy, fun and pretty intense at the same time. It turned out real sick.. Check it out!”

 

The first single off the album, ‘Black Hole Halo’, can be viewed at http://youtu.be/7RxHJeKNXSQ

The album will be self-titled and is set to be released July 8, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.

Pre-order the album here: http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/shop/item/groups/51000.1.html?article_group_sort_type_handle=rank&custom_keywords=sonic%20syndicate

Commented guitarist, main songwriter and founding member, Robin Sjunnesson“We decided to go with this one as a “Self-Titled” release. Mainly because as an album we have put everything we’ve got into it. All of our experience as musicians, the evolution of the music, the sound from all eras of the band, and also the road we have taken as people. This is us, this is Sonic Syndicate in all its beauty and destruction. It shows our strength, our love for melody, our scars, our energy. The cover art is a definite representation of that. In the background, a battle-torn city laid to waste, four figures emerging together with only each other to depend on in an environment so harsh, only those with a tough heart, body and soul can survive. The tone throughout this album is definitely darker, and as my Swedish family would say “With a red-line running in the middle” so we put this into the colour-scheme. We could not be more proud of this album, and we thank our fans for the support, it’s because of them that we’re here. This album is for you.”











The album will include a total of 11 tracks while the limited edition digipak will feature no less than 3 bonus tracks on top.





Sonic Syndicate tracklist:


01. Day Of The Dead



02. Black Hole Halo



03. Long Road Home



04. My Revenge



05. Before You Finally Break (feat. Speed/SOILWORK)



06. Catching Fire



07. Unbreakable


08. It Takes Me


09. See What I See



10. So Addicted



11. The Flame That Changed The World



BONUS TRACKS:

12. Diabolical Work Of Art



13. What We Shared



14. Another Soldier Down






Sonic Syndicate marks the band’s first release in four years after taking a break after touring the world in support of 2010’s critically acclaimed We Rule The Night. 





Commented the band: “It’s crazy, exciting, and mind-blowing to be back! The one thing we were looking forward to more than hitting the studio, was getting back on the road and seeing our fans, and now we have a killer new album to go out with! We can’t wait for you to hear the new material, and of course we’ll be ripping apart the stage with our favorite songs from all our albums! It is our personal mission to guarantee that these will be our most kick-ass, energetic and dynamic live shows yet. If you’ve seen SOSY live before then you’re gonna want to see the “Diabolical Tour of Art” as its gonna be bigger, better and more bad-ass. If you’ve never seen SOSY live before then now is the perfect time to join the party, and get to one of the cities we’re playing. Damn, this is gonna be good!”

DEAD BY WEDNESDAY will release their brand new EP, Death Of A Rockstar, on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 via Ear One Productions. The album, produced by Nicholas T. Rage of Toxic Holocaust (Hatebreed, Kingdom of Sorrow, Jasta), will be available online for download via iTunes, Amazon, & more! You can pre-order a bundle or a limited edition digipack or hard copy NOW here: http://earoneproductions.bigcartel.com/

 

Death Of A Rockstar is the band’s fourth release, and represents the death of one chapter of the band’s history due to the loss of long-time guitarist Ross Ragusa (who still does appear of Death Of A Rockstar), but is also the rebirth of a hardworking, independent metal band that has morphed into a “real” unstoppable international act.

 

Formed in 2005, DEAD BY WEDNESDAY made their mark by releasing their debut CD Democracy is Dead on Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed‘s Stillborn Records. In 2008, the band released their highly anticipated sophomore full length The Killing Project on Eclipse Records. The Killing Project, considered a crossover release by many, was an aggressive demonstration of New Haven, CT’s signature hybrid of metal, punk, and real hardcore. The album featured the single ‘Pawns’, which spawned a music video directed by Grammy nominated producer David Brodsky of My Good Eye, NYC, and went into rotation on MTV2’s Headbanger’s Ball, Music Choice and Havok TV on demand, Liquid Metal, Rock Band, and UFC.

 

In 2011, the band released their third record, The Last Parade. Produced by Enoch Jensen at East Lake Recording Studio’s in MA, this release was considered by the band as their “Master of Puppets”. The release of The Last Parade was followed by a full U.S. tour with Straight Line Stitch and Defiler, sponsored by the clothing line Hatewear, Inc. DEAD BY WEDNESDAY went on to snag the “Best Metal” award two years in a row at the Connecticut Music Awards.

 

Throughout the years DEAD BY WEDNESDAY have toured relentlessly, and in doing so have found their own sound and style, creating a fierce loyal fan base along the way. Now, with all the right members in place, they have all the pistons of this metal turbo engine running full throttle, and are without a doubt a serious force to be reckoned with.

ARCH ENEMY launches part 2 of track-by-track video

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music, Previews, Shows, Videos with tags , , , , on June 11, 2014 by Randy

ARCH ENEMY’s highly anticipated album, War Eternal, will be unleashed next week on June 10 in North America! For a preview of War Eternal, check out part 2 of the track-by-track video with Michael Amott (guitar) and Alissa White-Gluz (vocals): http://youtu.be/uENx0NWfvQY
Part 1 can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/8pCpYDxwR5c

ARCH ENEMY is currently on the road in Europe, having already completed 10 shows with new front-woman, Alissa White-Gluz. At one of the first shows, Alissa broke her riser into pieces and consequently broke a rib in the fall. She explained in an online posting: “Anyone at that show who saw me body slam through the fucking riser could imagine there would be some damage. But I’m a stubborn fuck and I waited a few shows before going to get x-rays, ultrasounds and blood tests. The damage to my head, arms and legs is just bad bruising, there is no apparent organ damage and no internal bleeding. Unfortunately, there is a compound break on one rib and severe bruising around several others. Good news is that the pieces of the rib are well aligned to heal back in place!” She added: “The doctor forbade me to continue playing shows… But cancelling shows would hurt way worse.”

After the resounding underground success of their debut full-length release Monument, MISS MAY I took a step beyond the metalcore world they had grown up in with the release of their album At Heart in 2012. The record, produced by renowned record producer Machine (Lamb Of God), proved to be one of the strongest and most surprising metal records of the last few years, spawning huge singles in the songs ‘Hey Mister’ and ‘Day By Day’. Entering the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week at #32, At Heart saw the band embrace a more mainstream metal approach to their music. During their 2012 Vans Warped Tour main stage onslaught, the At Heart campaign made massive leaps, seeing MISS MAY I nominated for ‘Best New Talent’ award at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, as well as headlining the Alternative Press 2012 Tour, and picking up support at Active Rock Radio for the first time. On the live side, the band was hand-picked for tours with the likes of Five Finger Death PunchKillswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine.

SONIC SYNDICATE Posts Third In-Studio Trailer – New Album Out July 8, 2014 via Nuclear Blast

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music, News, Previews, Releases, Videos with tags , , , , , , on June 11, 2014 by Randy

Anglo-Swedish modern metal powerhouse SONIC SYNDICATE have posted the third in-studio video trailer for the band’s upcoming self-titled, fifth album. Check it out at this location:  http://youtu.be/oahYekbZD-g

Commented the band: “It’s crazy, exciting, and mind-blowing to be back! The one thing we were looking forward to more than hitting the studio, was getting back on the road and seeing our fans, and now we have a killer new album to go out with! We can’t wait for you to hear the new material, and of course we’ll be ripping apart the stage with our favorite songs from all our albums! It is our personal mission to guarantee that these will be our most kick-ass, energetic and dynamic live shows yet. If you’ve seen SOSY live before then you’re gonna want to see the “Diabolical Tour of Art” as its gonna be bigger, better and more bad-ass. If you’ve never seen SOSY live before then now is the perfect time to join the party, and get to one of the cities we’re playing. Damn, this is gonna be good!”

The first single off the album, ‘Black Hole Halo’, can be viewed at http://youtu.be/7RxHJeKNXSQ

Also check out the studio trailer for more info: 
Part #1 can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/MgWlvLrUjOc
Part #2 is available here: http://youtu.be/fAqC_WEYrcI

 

The album will be self-titled and is set to be released July 8, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.

Pre-order the album here: http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/shop/item/groups/51000.1.html?article_group_sort_type_handle=rank&custom_keywords=sonic%20syndicate

Commented guitarist, main songwriter and founding member, Robin Sjunnesson“We decided to go with this one as a “Self-Titled” release. Mainly because as an album we have put everything we’ve got into it. All of our experience as musicians, the evolution of the music, the sound from all eras of the band, and also the road we have taken as people. This is us, this is Sonic Syndicate in all its beauty and destruction. It shows our strength, our love for melody, our scars, our energy. The cover art is a definite representation of that. In the background, a battle-torn city laid to waste, four figures emerging together with only each other to depend on in an environment so harsh, only those with a tough heart, body and soul can survive. The tone throughout this album is definitely darker, and as my Swedish family would say “With a red-line running in the middle” so we put this into the colour-scheme. We could not be more proud of this album, and we thank our fans for the support, it’s because of them that we’re here. This album is for you.”







Sonic Syndicate will also feature a guest appearance by SOILWORK‘s gifted vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid on the track ‘Before You Finally Break’. 





Commented singer Nathan James Biggs“I’m honored to call Speed a friend. I’ve been a big SOILWORK fan for years. Those guys were a massive hand in crafting that trademark Swedish sound so it made perfect sense to ask Speed when we knew we wanted to do a song with guest vocals. Performance wise I think we have similar styles and execution, but at the same time we both have our own thing going on so the voices compliment each other to great effect. My idea was also to have a real battle between our vocals. I hate it when you have these “featuring” songs and the guest just pops up for a chorus and then does backing vocals for a while in the verse or something. This is a real fight between us for the mic and I’m sure people are gonna appreciate that.”

The album will include a total of 11 tracks while the limited edition digipak will feature no less than 3 bonus tracks on top.
