The track is called “Atlas Novus” and it is a brilliantly crafted masterpiece of instrumental progressive rock. Check out the track below and let it soothe you. Continue reading »

Head on over to Metal Sucks to check out the stream right meow!
The instrumental prog metallers have released a preview of one of the new tracks off their upcoming record, The Migration, which is due out on June 11th. It’s a short three minute preview of a song entitled “Odyssey” and it sounds solid. Lots of a heavy yet melodic rhythmically complex riffing is going on here, not to mention soulful clean sweeps that progressive musicians love. I am excited to hear what the rest of this song and the album will sound like. Check out the preview below.
Above is the colorful artwork (done by Duncan Storr) for Scale the Summit’s new album, The Migration. The new Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, etc) produced album is slated to be released on June 11th through Prosthetic Records. Below is the official track listing:
Intronaut have announced an extensive North American touring schedule that will commence this June in support of their new record, Habitual Levitations. The group will be supported in full by Scale the Summit and by Mouth of the Architect and Castle on select stops of the trek. I know I’ll catch a show and so should you! Check out the full schedule below.
Scale the Summit have released a new teaser for their upcoming record, which is apparently entitled The Migration. To be more specific, a writing teaser. Watch as the band lays down some sweet licks that will leave all of you prog nerds drooling in anticipation. The Migration is slated to be released in Spring of next year. Check out the video below.
Scion AV has been doing monthly record label showcases and they have hosted shows for the labels Relapse Records, Nuclear Blast Records and Prosthetic Records. Well, a free live sampler from the Prosthetic Showcase is now available here and it’s pretty fucking cool. The main thing that got me about this is the inclusion of two of my favorite Holy Grail tracks (“Call Of Valhalla” and “Crisis In Utopia”).
The only other band that I was immediately familiar with on this sampler was Last Chance To Reason, although I was vaguely familiar with what Scale The Summit were, music-wise. The Greenery are a pretty odd band but you guys know me, I like weird shit. Might take some time and check this band out some time. Any way, check out the sampler and download dat bisch.
Instrumental progressive metallers Scale the Summit are streaming a B-Side from their last album, The Collective, over at Metal Sucks. The track is called “Redwoods” and is available for download digitally on iTunes and Amazon. The track will also be featured on the vinyl edition of The Collective. Check out this gorgeous sounding track ASAP!

Cynic has made the title track off of Carbon-Based Anatomy available for download here. I highly suggest checking this out even if you weren’t a fan of Cynic’s prior material. The song is on the lighter side and doesn’t feature Cynic’s signature vocorder vocals. I am really digging this new track, especially Reinhart”s drum work. Carbon-Based Anatomy will hit stores on November 15th via Season Of Mist records.
The band will also be embarking on a tour with Scale The Summit and 3 in November. Continue reading for the dates.

Not too long ago, we here at American Aftermath acquired a very skilled photographer by the name of Maclyn Bean. Maclyn is very gifted at what he does and what he does is get fantastic shots of bands in a live setting. Check out the gallery below to see the first set of photos that Maclyn got from the Slaughter Survivors Tour on August 3rd. This gallery contains photos of Scale The Summit. Check ‘em out and enjoy. All photographic credit goes to Maclyn Bean Photography. Check back for more galleries from this show.

Prosthetic Records have released a summer sampler featuring 17 tracks from the label’s heaviest hitters. Some of the bands include Black September (their newest sign), Trap Them, Scale The Summit, Animals as Leaders and Clinging To The Trees of a Forest Fire among others. So if you want a nice taste of what Prosthetic Records have to offer, head over to their Facebook page and download the sampler. It’s pretty killer and it features Clinging To The Trees of a Forest Fire’s new, fucking amazing track “Lower Than Life, High as The Sky.” Go get it, fools!
You say to hell with ‘em and do your own tour. A while back fans were given a chance to vote on who the opener would be for Summer Slaughter this year. The winning band was the (god awful) Within The Ruins. A deathcore band being picked to open up for Summer Slaughter. I gotta say I am not surprised. Anyway, I will not be attending Summer Slaughter and I highly doubt we will be covering it whatsoever, but I figured some of you might find it interesting that the bands that didn’t win the opener spot on the tour but were nominated decided to go it alone.
Conducting From The Grave, The Contortionist, Scale The Summit, Rings of Saturn, Volumes and Structures are the bands that will be hitting the road as the Summer Survivors tour. Some of these bands I am familiar with, some I am not. Few I have actually listened to. I know Conducting From The Grave. Typical deathcore turned metalcore band. Scale The Summit are a pretty interesting progressive metal band that I actually enjoy. The Contortionist, as I understand are a technical deathcore band. I didn’t even know that was a specific genre. I think I’ve listened to them before. Apparently they didn’t interest me enough to remember who they are. Rings of Saturn are not terrible. I can actually get into their sound. Volumes and Structures I have no idea about and I am honestly too lazy to look them up.
If this interests you, you can check these bands out on the Slaughter Survivors Tour. Dates after the jump. [Continue Reading]
