The reasons I love August Burn Red always get bumped up when they release a music video. I don’t know why but this band consistently releases enjoyable music videos. The band has just released a video for their track “Identity” which comes off of their most recent offering Found In Far Away Places. The video is 97% animated, with the only live action pieces being the band themselves. Check it out below. Adore. Continue reading
Oooooh. This is exciting. I didn’t know we were getting new Born Of Osiris this year. I’m so fucking pumped that I can’t control myself. This band has really grown on me and seriously grown as a band over the years. BoO have unloaded a radical new track from their forthcoming album, which has yet to me detailed, let alone named. The track is titled “Throw Me In The Jungle.” Check it out below. Continue reading
Frankfurt’s The Green River Burial have released the official video for their new track “Armilus”, which will appear on the group’s forthcoming Blight 7″, which is due out on August 1. The groove heavy, unquestionably heavy tune is set to a Yves Otterbach-directed clip depicting the band performing in front of an ever-changing backdrop of nature and interstellar scenery. Check out the video after the break and pre-order the 7″ here or here.
I’ve been following Will Haven since the release of their 1997 album El Diablo, when I encountered the song Ego’s Game on a Revelation Records sampler CD (back when those still were a thing). I saw them live the summer of that year and was hooked by the downtuned, sludgy riffs and hardcore intensity. Continue reading
Man it has been a long time since we got some new, rad Zao tunes. I mean, American Aftermath wasn’t even around back then and I know I’m not the only one who listens to The Funeral Of God on a regular basis, right? We have all been wondering if Zao was going to still have the chops to crush after all these years and I am proud to reveal that they do indeed have the chops. The band has a new track streaming over on Decibel and it’s wonderful. Head on over and stream it til you faint.
August Burns Red will release their new album Found In Far Away Places next Tuesday and the band has release it’s latest offering from the album. The new track is titled “Ghosts” and it features guest vocals by A Day To Remember‘s Jeremy McKinnon. The track, like pretty much everything from August Burns Red, is fantastic. Check out the track below. Continue reading
Syracuse, NY’s Bleak has come of age on their first full length release We Deserve Our Failures via the venerable HEX Records. Since I first encountered the band at a very random live show in 2013, they’ve changed considerably. Most notably, they changed vocalists later in that same year, eschewing the raspy scrape and sneer of former singer Mike, and trading it in for the vicious growl of current frontman Skot. With that altered lineup and a couple of shorter releases under their belts (2014’s s/t EP and a split 7” with PA hardcore crushers Sovereign), the band has grown from a noise drenched, simplistic assault into something somehow beefier, more mature, and more complexly heavy. Continue reading
Every Time I Die have announced a string of summer US tour dates that will commence on July 23 and extend through August 22. The band will be joined by the likes of Real Friends, Counterparts, Gnarwolves, Brigades and Gatherers throughout the trek. Check out the touring schedule after the break.
Man, do I love August Burns Red. The band is just spectacular and I can listen to them relentlessly. The band’s forthcoming album Found In Far Away Places is due out at the end of next month and they have unveiled a new track. This track is titled “Identity” and it is as amazing as you want it to be. Maybe more. I know I can’t wait to hear some more August Burns Red, but this track will hold me over nicely. Check it out below. Continue reading
I know I have been championing the new Haste The Day album Coward for a bit now, but seeing as Burning Bridges is one of my all time favorite records, there is now way I would miss out on an album that sounds even a fraction of how that one did. Well, Haste The Day are doing just that. Uniting the current line-up with the original line-up, the band will release their ultimate record Coward next week. The band has released a new track titled “Take,” which you can now hear after the jump. It’s a bit of old and a bit of new. I dig it alot. Check it out. Continue reading
Holy shit. Man, I haven’t heard or thought of xDeathstarx in a long fucking time. I’m sure a lot of our readers here on AA don’t even remember the Christian metalcore act, as they haven’t released anything since 2007 or performed since 2009. I thought xDeathstarx was loooong gone and never to be heard from again. Well, apparently I was wrong and the band has released a new music video for their first new song in eight years. Stream away after the jump. The band has adopted today’s standards of metalcore and have lowered their guitar tuning. Check it out. See what’s up. Continue reading
I have a fifty-fifty relationship with The Devil Wears Prada. I enjoy about half of their catalog and don’t care so much for the rest. The bands album 8:18 was cool and I always check out the bands material just so see if I dig it or not. The band has released the digital version of their Record Store Day exclusive track “South of The City” and I dig it. The band wrote and recorded this song is four days, which is interesting. It’s not my favorite TDWP track, but it’s not the worst. Check it out for yourself below. Continue reading
I’ve been all over this From First To Last albums since it was announce and the time has come for us all to hear Dead Trees in full. If you’ve been into what you’ve heard thus far, there is a lot of rad shit in here for you to enjoy. If you’re not a fan, check it out anyway. From First To Last definitely lost something when Sonny left, but Spencer is a great vocalist and he brings a lot to the table. Check out the full album below. Continue reading
Haste The Day‘s crowdfunded album Coward is going to be released next month and the band have premiered their first track from the album titled “World.” The awesome thing about this album that HtD have put together is that is brings back the original line-up of the band as well as the current line-up and the music is shaping up to be awesome. After a single listen to “World,” I am dying to hear more. I fully support this effort and I even contributed to the crowdfunding. Bring me more and check out the new track below. Continue reading
Any Harry Potter fans out there? Of course you’re there. Well, if you have a soft spot for the Wizarding World, then this new From First To Last track may tickle your fancy. The band is currently streaming a new track titled “I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good,” which of course is a reference to the fifth Harry Potter book, The Order Of The Phoenix. Well, on top of the title and subtle references, the band has incorporated pieces of the Harry Potter film theme, which is pretty cool. I’m digging the track and suggest you check it out after the jump. Continue reading
