Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, Featured, New Music, News, Photos, Previews, Releases, Reviews, Uncategorized with tags , , , on November 25, 2013 by Randy

The season of giving is upon us, and Florida death metal legends DEICIDE are making it official with today’s release of ‘IN THE MINDS OF EVIL.’ The band’s 11th studio album is in-stores now, and features the same diabolical take on reality that has become the trademark of a career spanning more than 25 years.

Says DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton of the new release: “What better way to celebrate a bunch of religious pilgrims coming to America than with ‘IN THE MINDS OF EVIL’? Pass the gravy!” Fans and critics agree. Here’s a taste of the album’s early accolades:

A rousing maelstrom of fleet, nimble top-tier death metal, razor-sharp jittery grooves and unadulterated malevolence” –Decibel

A ‘demonsend’ to long-time fans… You can uncross your fingers because this album was well worth waiting for” –New Noise Magazine

One of the year’s strongest death metal releases… ask Santa for this” –The Lair Of Filth

This is a great album from the satanic royalty of Florida death metal” –Sludgelord

DEICIDE can out ‘death metal’ any band on the planet” –Soundcrave Magazine

To commemorate the release of ‘IN THE MINDS OF EVIL,’ NEW NOISE MAGAZINE has decked the cover of their December 2013 issue with DEICIDE. For more information on NEW NOISE and their new issue, visit here: http://newnoisemagazine.com/?p=71324

IN THIS MOMENT Announce THE HELLPOP II TOUR; Second Leg Of Headlining Tour To Launch January 2, 2014

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, Featured, New Music, News, Previews, Releases, Reviews, Shows with tags , , , , , , , on November 13, 2013 by Randy

BUTCHER BABIES, DEVOUR THE DAY & ALL HAIL THE YETI

To Provide Support On Month-Long Run 

 

“WHORE” Single #21 At Active Rock Radio

 

Inaugural HELLPOP Tour Currently Underway With

MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, KYNG & ALL HAIL THE YETI In Support

 

IN THIS MOMENT are kicking off 2014 with more than a bang – they’re ushering in the new year with THE HELLPOP TOUR II. Set to launch January 2 in Portland, OR, the 16-city tour wraps January 5 in South Florida, where the band will then embark on the SHIPROCKED cruise. Joining IN THIS MOMENT on HELLPOP II are BUTCHER BABIES in direct support, DEVOUR THE DAY and ALL HAIL THE YETI. Complete dates are below.

The Crowd Surge fan club pre-sale will start Wednesday, November 13, at noon EST, with tickets going on-sale to the public on Friday, November 15. The fan club pre-sales offer two packages, one with a ticket and pre-show meet and greet, and the other including a ticket, t-shirt and meet and greet. For more details on fan club packages, please visit the official In This Moment Facebook page.

IN THIS MOMENT are currently on the road headlining the first leg of their HELLPOP tour, which kicked off October 24 in Tempe, AZ and runs through November 27 in Los Angeles, CA. The tour is being fueled by the band’s continued success at radio, where current single “Whore” sits at #21 at Active Rock formats and is poised to break the Top 20. Watch the provocative lyric video for “Whore” here.

“I am so proud and excited for the world to hear ‘Whore’,” says IN THIS MOMENT frontwoman Maria Brink of her band’s latest single. “The message behind this song is taking back control. It is about taking the power from a disgusting and degrading word and turning it back around on the accuser. It’s about self-empowerment, love and liberation. This is an honest and raw movement that needs to be heard.”

 

The imagery the band has created around “Whore” is just as provocative: “I decided to pose nude for the visual art for ‘Whore’ to evoke a raw vulnerable emotion. The word WHORE written down my back and the dunce cap symbolize me placing myself on the stake for those who are suffering, and I can only hope to encourage at least one person to find the self worth and love they deserve to transcend out of a painful situation into a beautiful one. It is about finding our power and taking a stand.  We are resilient beings and need to realize our incredible strengths. I will not bow down to others perceptions of me. I will only rise in the name of art, love and music.”

 

“Whore” is the third single from IN THIS MOMENT’s Century Media Records release ‘Blood’. The album was released in August 2012 and marked the highest debut of the band’s career, entering the Billboard Top 200 at No. 15 and selling more than 20,000 units first week. The record has emerged as one of the best selling rock albums of the past year, with sales of more than 195,000, and counting.

 

From January 26-30, 2014, the band will be making a return engagement on the SHIPROCKED cruise, where they will set sail out of Miami, FL, to Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. For more information, visit www.shiprocked.com.

HEART OF A COWARD Announce the release of SEVERANCE November 12 via Century Media

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, Featured, New Music, News, Releases, Shows with tags , , on August 9, 2013 by Randy

Los Angeles, CA – One of the UK’s hottest up-and-coming Metal bands HEART OF A COWARD have announced the release of their second album, SEVERANCE, due out via Century Media Records on November 4 in Europe and November 12 in North America.

Singer Jamie Graham had this to say about the new album, “Severance is undoubtedlyheavier than our last record but has a lot more ‘traditional song structures’ in that we’re focusing on choruses and arrangements that are engaging, as opposed to riff after riff after riff.

The loose concept of the album revolves (typically) around the title, ‘Severance’… in a context of removing one’s self from whatever negative aspects are impeding on life and self-progression. There are some very personal moments on the record lyrically, but it’s very much an ‘outside looking in’ perspective on social leeches, elitism, internet culture, obsession with status; notably the ‘celebration of celebrity’ no matter how mundane their endeavors are.

The positive side touches more on being an unstoppable force in your own right when it comes to doing what makes you happy. To aspire, not to obsess. That real success is not measured by others and that you are your own master.”

SEVERANCE features artwork by Jon Barmby (Architects, Devil Sold His Soul) and was recorded in Milton Keynes with producer Acle Kahney (TesseracT) and with Justin Hill at Fortress Studios in London.  The album was mixed in the US by Will Putney (Thy Art Is Murder, Demoraliser,  Suicide Silence).

 

SEVERANCE track listing:

1. Monstro

2. Prey

3. Distance

4. Nauseam

5. Deadweight

6. Eclipsed

7. Psychophant

8. Mirrors

9. Desensitise

10. Severance

 

There is no doubt that SEVERANCE will come with a vengeance which also goes for their relentless live performances. HEART OF A COWARD are already busy scheduling various live activities, first will be their own headlining tour throughout the UK.
