I was extremely curious about Wovenwar when they arrived earlier this year. If you haven’t been keeping up, Wovenwar is all of As I Lay Dying minus Tim Labesis with the addition of Oh, Sleeper‘s Shane Blay taking over vocal duties. I’m really loving the bands album and the band has released one of my favorite tracks off of the album for your streaming pleasure. You can check out “Profane” after the jump. It’s gooooood.

I’ve gotten into a lot of bands this year and two of the bands that I have come to love are Vanna and My Iron Lung. I also got into Being As An Ocean, but not to the extent of the former two. Well, these three bands are teaming up with Crooks for a European/UK tour this fall and if you are within the vicinity of any of these shows, I highly suggest you hit this tour up. Check the dates after the jump and see where you’ll be seeing Being As An Ocean, Vanna and My Iron Lung. Continue reading

I know I’m not the only person who was beyond excited that Australia’s metalcore titans I Killed the Prom Queen made their return this year with their new album Beloved.

Darkest Hour aren’t wasting any time promoting their new, self-titled album, and Sumerian debut. The band has released numerous tracks and I honestly have no idea where the fuck these guys are going any more. I have yet to hear a track that sounds like one of the others, so I don’t know how this will flow as an album. I guess I’ll just wait and see when the album drops in August. Until then, check out the bands latest track “The Misery We Make” after the jump. Continue reading
Darkest Hour have released another new track from their forthcoming self-titled full length, which is due out on August 5th via Sumerian Records.

You can check out the track, via video, after the break.

This band harnesses everything I once loved about metalcore and puts a new swing on it. Check it out and enjoy. Continue reading
Lane and I discussed Darkest Hour‘s previous track that they premiered and we were both pretty “meh” about it, but the band has unleashed a track titled “Rapture In Exile” that totally destroys.

You can stream the new track after the jump as well as see the songs official video, which was filmed professionally at Mayhem Fest. Continue reading
Influential metalcore/mathcore act Drowningman will reform this August for a trio of shows with their Rock and Roll Killing Machine line-up. Vocalist Simon Brody had the following comments on the brief reformation:
“If all goes well we may play a select few shows in the near future, hopefully festivals and bigger shows that make sense, since we don’t all live in the same part of the country.”
You can check out the tour dates after the break as well as a clip of the band’s recent rehearsal session.
The controversial moshcore titans in Desolated have announced dates for a sure-to-be ignorant month long US tour later this Fall alongside Florida deathcore act Traitors, our Pennsylvania metallic hardcore friends in Benchpress and New York hardcore act VICE. With a strange hierarchy of hatred, wherein metalheads have come to hate hardcore shows for the violence and in turn, the hardcore scene has come to hate Desolated for the same reasons, this tour alongside its crew of bands is going to be something. Peep full details and dates via the poster above.
