Demon Hunter posted a song last week entitled 'Artificial light' which basically nailed down the type of song we were to expect from them. Today we got a new song entitled 'I Will Fail You', which was about the easier troll set up Metalsucks has ever been given, but anyhow, this is basically going to be this albums 'Driving Nails', 'Heartstrings Come Undone', 'Tomorrow Never Comes' etc... They typically have at least one song that's all clean vocals and supposed to be the more emotionally heavy song on the album. Demon Hunter aren't reinventing the wheel with this album it seems, but I'm still intrigued to hear it.

I don't know where I'd be without Spotify. I constantly find myself discovering new bands that I can't believe I hadn't heard of up to this point. Feared caught my eye with a pretty sweet album cover, and kept my attention with awesome music to boot. Feared is what you might get if you blended Meshuggah's older thrashier material, with Gojira's ambient death metal sound with a healthy splash of groovy rhythm guitars. It's hard hitting and enthralling.

Deathcore titans Whitechapel have been hard at work on a new album since last August, but the real details are surfacing about it now, including the cover/title and a new single! The album is titled Our Endless War and is a bit more visually interesting than their last cover, although they've definitely made a shift from their older album covers that were more conventional metal covers. The new cover is pretty clean looking for sure, also there's quite a rift with people at the moment about the second band name logo they've been using. While I do love the old logo, the new one fits this cover more and is frankly really clean looking. I think it works really well for them.

I Declare War are heading towards the release of a new album entitled We Are Violent People By Nature, which is set to release on April 15th this year. This album follows up their self titled album from 2011, which was one of my favorite albums that year and the strongest outing the band has had yet. 'Quiet' feels exactly in line with the tone they set with the self-titled album and while the lyrics are a little more generic than the last albums fare, they fit the band well still.
