sadly previously reported, The Chariot will soon be disbanding and embarking on one final North American tour with Glass Cloud, Birds in Row, To the Wind and Rebuker. The band announced the official touring schedule today and can be viewed after the break. This is your last chance to witness the madness that is The Chariot.
The Chariot have announced that they will throw in the towel after ten long years of making chaotic music for all of us to enjoy. The band have released a special video montage revealing their eventual disbandment. The video also announced the band’s plans for a farewell tour that will span from October 10th to November 16th with Birds in Row, Glass Cloud, To the Wind and Rebuker in tow. Needless to say I am incredible bummed and hope to see this band play before I never have the chance again. You can view the farewell video after the break.
RIP The Chariot: 2003-2013. You will be missed.
Fan filmed footage has surfaced on the net of The Chariot performing their song “Not” at the Uniondale, NY stop of the Vans Warped Tour. The below footage captured Letlive. frontman Jason Butler performing the ending section of the song with the band and doing his usual batshit crazy antics. Watch the entertaining clip after the break.
Who doesn’t love The Chariot? I mean, I know I do. There is a perfectly sound reason why One Wing didn’t land on my year-end list in 2012: I listened and listened, but I couldn’t completely take in the album. One Wing is amazing and I see that now. If you listened to One Wing, you know that the albums first track “Forget” is especially powerful. It’s hard hitting and aggressive and it rules. Well, The Chariot has released a music video for “Forget” and it’s pretty cool also. Continue reading »

An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
Norma Jean are slated to head to the studio in December to record their sixth studio album with Josh Barber. Frontman Cory Brandan on the matter:
We will begin our last block of writing in 7 days, and will enter the studio in December.Norma Jean will be recording our next record with Joshua Barber out of Kansas City and will be in the studio all of December and January, save for the holidays.
We’ve already met with Josh to go over ideas and have been keeping in contact with him regularly. He came down and sat in on our last writing session in September. We worked really well together and had tons of ideas.
I’ll leave a link in the comments of something he’s done if anyone wants to check out some music. Thanks to all of you that have supported Norma Jean over the years. We still have a lot of momentum and can’t wait for you guys to hear these new songs. –Cory
It’s sunday funday again, You know what that means, right? It’s time to turn off that stupid football game and get some insight to what it’s like touring in a tech metal band. In honor of Car Bomb‘s new album”w^w^^w^w“, please watch the documentary “Why_You_Do_This“. The film is produced and directed by Car Bomb’s vocalist Michael Dafferner, and it’s pretty good.
The documentary follows Car Bomb on their first few tours and documents the band’s constant struggles. It also features interviews from members of The Chariot, Gojira and Lamb Of God. Watch the film, you’ll enjoy it.

The Chariot’s Josh Scogin recently came out and revealed that a film inspired by their wonderful new record One Wing is in the works. The frontman is reportedly teaming up with videographer Kevin Custer to put together a short 20-25 minute based on the album. The duo hopes to have the project finished in the coming months and have it featured at upcoming film festivals. I wonder how it will turn out. Until I get to witness this masterpiece (crosses fingers) I will continue to listen to One Wing nonstop.

The Chariot is notorious for their unique brand of jarring hardcore sound that has the tendency to rip the flesh from your face and leave you begging for more. In my opinion, The Chariot has put out consistently good records ever since 2004’s Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing, Nothing Is Dead, and Nothing Is Bleeding. Through all this time they have stuck true to their core sound but always left room for a little playful weirdness. One Wing is their fifth studio effort and continues their tradition of keeping things destructively heavy and weird.
The shitty dudes in Every Time I Die have officially announced their Fall and Winter tour schedule. Supporting the band are The Chariot, letlive., and Kills and Thrills. Sounds like a killer tour package if I say so myself. I would suggest you stop working on your thesis on quantum physics, skip your important test date and go to one of these shows!
Just kidding, don’t be a dumbass.
I fucking love The Chariot, as I expressed recently. This band is amazing and everything they touch is gold, as I see it. The band has released a new teaser for their forthcoming Season Of Mist debut One Wing and it is quite aggravating. Mostly because of the blips and pauses throughout it. Regardless, I can’t wait to get my hands on this bad boy. The album will be released on August 28th. Are you excited? You should be.
I love The Chariot. Before The Chariot, I loved Norma Jean, but gave up on them when Josh Scogin departed. Josh’s signature bellow is what drew me to his projects, along with the dizzying, insanely good music that the band played around him. ANYWAY.
The Chariot are streaming a new song of of their forthcoming album One Wing, which I had on my year end list before I even heard the first track. This track, titled “in” is fucking incredible. As soon as you hit play you are bombarded with world-folding awesomeness. The track is streaming over at Alt Press but thanks to the wonders of the interwebz, the track has already made it’s way to YouTube for my embedding pleasure. Check it out! LOVE IT! FUCKING GET CRAZY! One Wing will be released on August 28th via eOne/Good Fight.
Yup, that’s the album artwork. See it? Good. The pre-orders for the record are all ready for you crazy kids to go snatch them up. Just in case you forgot, I posted the track listing again.
01 – “Forget”
