Lifeless are a band out of New Jersey specializing in bleak, heavy as shit, memorable metallic hardcore. I first heard of the band through a b9 hate thread criticizing their excessively violent shows and fans. Being a fan of ignorant shit live and on record, I knew instantly that they were going to be at best, one of my favorite bands and at worst, at least an enjoyable listen. They quickly settled into the former category and I finally had the chance to see them live at last year’s This Is Hardcore Festival wherein news was ruminating of a new LP. That LP, DREAM, is now in sight, set for the release date of March 24th on Fast Break! Records. I had the chance to speak with frontman Jeremy Tingle about the new record, DIY tour horror stories, chilling with Fury Of Five, the time rumors spread that Jeremy had been beaten to death with his own torn off leg, our mutual interests in DOOM and The X-Files and lots more. Check it all out along with an exclusive premiere of the band’s new single “Surrender” below, follow Lifeless on Facebook here and pre-order DREAM via Fast Break! Records here.

Technical death metal horde Abiotic will be unleashing their new album Casulstry in April and the band is already building up intensity.

Okay, I admit that it has been a long while since I’ve listened to Keep Of Kalessin. It was probably around the release of Reptilian that I stopped listening to them, but I don’t remember the band utilizing the technique of “clean vocals” back then. Well, apparently in my Kalessinless times, the band has changed up their vocal stylings on certain tracks (although the harsh vocals seem kinda whack to me also). I just don’t feel like they fit alongside the music. Maybe it’s just me. Judge for yourself and stream Keep Of Kalessin‘s Epistemology below. Continue reading
