A while back, while listening to the weekly Metal Injection Livecast, I was introduced to a band from the UK who go by the awe-inspiring name Milk White Throat. The bands sound is intense and extremely hard to classify. I recently conducted an interview with Brian Thomas, singer/bassist of Milk White Throat and I learned a ton. This is one of the most informative musicians I have ever interviewed. We discussed the bands forthcoming album Death Of Beauty, the art of choosing a band name and what’s up next for MWT.
I was recently introduced to a band called Numbers thanks to my buddy Jimmy Rowe (of HBIH) and the power of Facebook and, after listening to the bands latest album, decided to interview bassist Ryan Majoris.

Animals as Leaders have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Joy of Motion, which will be released on March 25th via Sumerian Records. The new song is the awe-inspiring and trippy “Lippincott”. In contrast to the highly aggressive “Tooth and Claw”, the track weaves through ever evolving passages of jazz-inspired soloing, polyrhythmic grooves and ambient electronics. It reminds me a bit of the material off of Weightless, albeit a little heavier. You can stream the track after the break and pre-order your copy here.
Wild Throne (Dog Shredder) have premiered their forthcoming Blood Maker EP over at Metal Sucks for your listening pleasure.
