Underoath Premiere A New Song!

Sadly Underoath haven't changed their plans to break up next year, but in the mean time they are releasing a greatest hits album with some new material on it. The band has debuted one new track called 'Sunburnt' which you can find by clicking this. The song is pretty solid, although it's a little 'lighter' sounding than most of the material on their last album.

When the song gets leaked to youtube, I'll be sure to post it here. In the meantime, thanks to Billboard for posting the track.

The Acacia Strain - Death Is The Only Mortal

The Acacia Strain are back. I have been itching for this album for a while, and now that it is here I can say with assurance that this album is about as close to everything I wanted it to be as it could be. It is a continuation of their already well-established sound with improvements across the board.

Lynchmada Release New Single 'Immerser'!

I don't know a whole lot about Lynchmada, but their new single 'Immerser' is pretty intriguing. The song is produced by the fantastic producer Zeuss, who has worked with numerous bands like Shadows Fall, The Acacia Strain, Impending Doom, and many others. Lynchmada's new single is a solid song, however I don't believe it's from an upcoming album since the band just released To The Earth late last year.

Anyhow, you can stream the track over at

Meshuggah Posted A Video For 'Demiurge'!

If you by some strange event haven't heard Koloss yet, you're really missing out on some top tier music. Anyhow, Meshuggah have made a music video for their song 'Demiurge'. The video itself itsn't anything particularly new being that it's just video of the band playing live, but it's a nice way to see up close the band members playing on stage. Plus the on the mic shots are pretty cool.

New Parkway Drive Song!

Parkway Drive have released the first single from their upcoming album Atlas. The song is titled 'Old Ghosts / New Regrets'. I was a pretty big fan of Deep Blue and to be honest I haven't listened to this band in quite sometime, but this song doesn't really do a whole lot to get me really excited for the album. It's a pretty solid track, but it's in no way better than their previous material. Here's to hoping they experimented a little on the rest of the album. I've respected the fact that they are honest with themselves and their music, but honesty will only get you so far if you're re-hashing a bit. I will say though that they're still going pretty solid with writing catching choruses, and Winston's vocals are a awesome as ever.

The Haunted Lose Another Two Members

I really hope I'm wrong on this one, but after reading this news, I'm afraid we may see the end of The Haunted soon. Vocalist Peter Dolving left the group a few months back and since then they've been searching for a new vocalist, but as of today it would appear that one of the Björler brothers, Anders, and Per Möller Jensen, have left the band. It's tough losing one member, but three fifths of the band? That's a whole other story. Now it's not impossible fo rthe two remaining members to keep things up, and I would love to see how that would go, but I'm seeing grey clouds in the sky unfortunately.

Fall City Fall Sign With Victory Records!

Fall City Fall have just been signed to Victory Records this week, which adds a pretty solid band to their artist lineup. Fall City Fall play a style of chaotic hardcore/metalcore in the vein of The Chariot, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Exotic Animal Petting Zoo with inspirations from the likes of As I Lay Dying and August Burns Red. So if you're into those bands definitely give these guys a chance.

As I Lay Dying - Awakened

So As I Lay Dying hit the 10 year mark last year, but thankfully they didn't shell out an album real quick to mark the occasion, instead they released an EP with three pretty solid new songs on it. This gave us a taste of what would be coming on the next album and satiated our palates for the time being. Now the time has come for their fifth studio album, Awakened, to be released. So obviously with a band this big, the question is ‘how does it hold up?’

Carnifex Are Taking A Break

Carnifex have announced plans to go on a hiatus after they finish up their current tour. the band states it's for a number of reasons, and want to make clear they are still a band. It could be that like many bands out there the finances aren't amazing and they need to work for a bit with a job that pays better, or maybe they just need a break. I doubt this will be the last we hear from the band, but for now they won't be doing much.

More New Dethklok!

Big thanks to Alan again for pointing me to this one, Hot Topic today premiered a new song called 'The Galaxy' with an accompanying music video! The video seems inspired by Star Wars and Star Trek and involves the band members using their music as a weapon. It's pretty awesome.

Three More Leaked Dethklok Songs!

As October 16th looms closer and closer, I'm getting more and more excited for Dethalbum III. To help quench my thirst for new Dethklok a commenter on this post by the name of Alan has shown me that the person who uploaded the previous leaked song Andromeda, who goes by the name bdwasuka, has also uploaded three more songs from the album! The songs are in the same quality, which is due to the fact that they are recorded from a podcast, so it's not necessarily the recorders fault the podcast may just be compressed, but fear not the songs are in a listenable state.

The Sword 'Apocryphon' Lyric Video!

The Sword have posted a lyric video for the title track off their upcoming album Apocryphon! Apart from the somewhat odd electronic intro the song is pretty much what you might expect from the band. I'm digging the album cover, and the song itself is pretty solid.

Underoath To Break Up Next Year

here's a bit of sad news, and a bit unexpected, Underoath are going to call it quits after an Anthology release (featuring two new songs which is nice) and a farewell tour. Underoath was one of the first bands I listened to that set me on the road to metal, so in a way I owe them a lot of thanks for my music taste as it is now. I had feared this day might come when Aaron left the band but I was happy to see them go on without him, but alas it would appear the band feels it's right to break up now. The bands press release doesn't give too many details as too necessarily why they are breaking up, but in any case 15 years, 7 albums, and 1.3 million record sales is quite a solid career. Here's to hoping them the best.

Anaal Nathrakh Get Crazier

Anaal Nathrakh are essentially the definition of extreme metal. A combination of crazy fast music with vocals that tend towards the insane. You do have to question whether the band members are crazy, or just mad geniuses. Anyhow, this new track is called 'Forging Towards The Sunset' and it's from their upcoming album Vanitas.

You Might Be In This Wretched Video!

Wretched have released a music video of sorts for the song 'Karma Accomplished' off their latest album Son Of Perdition, which if you haven't checked out by now you definitely should because it's easily one of the best deathcore releases this year. The video is a combo of mostly tour footage combined with some footage of vocalist Adam Cody on a rooftop performing the vocals for the song. If you've been at a Wretched show recently you might just be in the video for a mere second. So give it a look, and if you haven't, the song is great anyhow.
