Okay, when I first heard Abrams, the comparison I heard was Blood Mountain-era Mastodon. Now, that is a heavy order right there, but it is absolutely right. Abrams definitely have that proggy-stoner vibe to them that maintains both heaviness and melody. It’s just amazing. Well, the band has premiered the first track off of their upcoming album Lust.Love.Loss. The track is titled “Manic” and it’s fucking brilliant. Check it out below. Continue reading
Connecticut-based instrumental progressive metal quartet Earthside have premiered a new track from their forthcoming debut full-length, A Dream in Static, over at Metal Insider. The track is the eight minute behemoth “The Closest I’ve Come”, which cycles between dreamlike atmospherics, intricate melodies and pummeling post-metal sensibilities. The band offered the following comments on the new track:
“‘The Closest I’ve Come’ was a coming of age song for us. It was the first piece of music we wrote for the record, and in a very personal way it represents our journey, both as musicians and people, from adolescence to maturity. This track defined us on a core level and set the bar for our future output.
It also tells our story through an instrumental medium—the feeling of pushing oneself and striving for something greater, but also longing to reach the point of fulfillment—which rarely happens in the creative process!”
Feel free to stream the song after the break.
A Dream in Static is due out later this year. An official release date is still pending.
Now THIS is a tour I can get behind. You all know how much I adore Coheed And Cambria and I also love emo act You Blew It!.

If you’re a seasoned fan of Coheed and have yet to get into You Blew It!, this would be the PERFECT time to do so. Check out the dates below and PLEASE check out one of the shows. Continue reading

Italian progressive metal outfit Adimiron have premiered the official video for their track “Ayahuasca”, off of their 2014 album Timelapse, over at Metal Sucks. The spiraling, complex track is set to a surreal animated clip featuring hand-drawn illustrations. Monika Janouchová, who is responsible for these animations, stated the following:
“’Ayahuasca is an inspiring song. It has the power to take us to unreal places, and I just wanted to transform its potential into images. Each scene and situation brings us, together with the music, to a long surreal trip. Our mind opens and we are enabled to see more…It’s like a vivid dream in which we cannot tell whether it is real or not and if everything will be normal once woken up.”
Check out the video after the break as well as a stream of Timelapse.
Long-running New Zealand progressive death metal outfit Dawn of Azazel will release their fourth full-length next month. The new record will be titled The Tides of Damocles and will be released on April 28 via the band’s Bandcamp. The upcoming effort, which follows 2009’s Relentless, was recorded, mixed and mastered last year at Mana Recording Studios (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, etc) in Tampa, Florida by Brian Elliot and J.J. Hrubovcak. The band issued the following comments regarding the new album:
“We’re excited as fuck to resurface with this record. It has an anger and a dynamism that reflects the reasons we’ve been silent for a several years, and our aggression moving forward in spite of these obstacles. We couldn’t be more proud of this record as our contribution of something ferocious and unique to the death metal genre.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break, along with their upcoming live dates.
So yeah, I never listened to Chon before today. I admit it. I also regret it. This band is pretty sick and not what I expected to hear, but I love it. Grow is definitely a grand album and it’s something that I’m glad I stumbled into today. If you’re like me and you’re new to Chon, then now is the time to get introduced because the bands new album is now streaming! Check out Grow below and take in a huge toke of Chon. Continue reading
