New Conducting From The Grave Song!

Even when you try to keep up with whats going on in the metalverse, it's tough to keep tabs on everything and stuff tends to fall through the cracks up until the last minute. I had no idea that Conducting From The Grave were working on a new album or that they had finished their contract with Sumerian and took to the kickstarter/self-publishing route like many other bands are trying.

Band Of The Week: Dark Sermon

I have been following Dark Sermon since they went under a different moniker as In Reference To A Sinking Ship (which is a reference to a Norma Jean song title), in part it was thanks to the fact that vocalist Johnny Crowder went to the same university as me and made the paper at my school. In that relatively small period of time things have basically exploded for Dark Sermon, they got signed to eOne and have been touring pretty extensively with their debut LP In Tongues.

Harm's Way - Blinded

Harm’s Way’s LP Isolation is a great example of straight forward hardcore music done right. This band has the right attitude and the writing capabilities to make them the top of the genre. Their focus on enormously heavy sound sans needless breakdowns really makes them something special. This year we got some new music from them in the form of the Blinded EP. This EP continues their well-established sound but adds a thick heaping of great atmosphere.

Revocation - Self Titled

Getting the best of both worlds is something people generally consider a good thing, and when it comes to Revocation is far and above true. Revocation’s blend of death metal and thrash metal is so incredibly well done and captures the best aspects of both those genres perfectly. While you can ponder the labels of the bands sounds for a long time while listening to their albums, one thing remains clear, these guys put out incredibly well written music and their new self-titled album only furthers that point.

Band Of The Week: Elysian

Elysian are an Australian progressive metal band who fall somewhere between Periphery and Allegaeon. There's plenty to love on Wires Of Creation between the technically proficient writing/musicianship and the spaced out atmospheric parts of the album that really give it a signature feel.

New Fit For An Autopsy Song 'Thank You, Budd Dwyer'!

Fit For An Autopsy are basically killing it right now. Their upcoming album Hellbound is no doubt going to be as stellar as their debut album The Process Of Human Extermination. The band has released a new track from Hellbound entitled 'Thank You, Budd Dwyer' and it's definitely worth checking out. The songs title references Robert Budd Dwyer, a former politician who famously killed himself in front of reporters on live television. Dark stuff, but it's a great track.
