Band Of The Week: Malevolence

Portugese progressive death metal outfit Malevolence have released their album Antithetical a few days ago on November 22nd, which I plan to review here soon, but that doesn't mean you should wait to give them a listen. It's a great listen and packed with great writing.

New After The Burial Song 'Wolves Within'!

We haven't had new material from After The Burial since 2010's In Dreams, apart from the three remastered tracks from Forging A Future Self that appear on the This Is All We Have EP. The new song 'Of Fearful Men' is a pretty solid track with a heavy dose of progressive influence they've been known to drop in their sound.

Gutted Souls - Unconscious Automaton

We live in a world where achieving clean production and pitch perfect sounding guitars has never been easier and the focus on getting the guitar tone and mixing takes the forefront in music. It’s understandable though because when everyone’s music sounds perfectly clean it’s often times hard to listen to bands that don’t have great production. But then there are bands that come around and remind you that the writing and energy of the music should be the most important factor. Rio De Janeiro’s Gutted Souls are just the band to do so. Their EP Unconscious Automaton is a much needed blast of energy that packs a very raw and visceral sound.

Band Of The Week: Amia Venera Landscape

So I'm a bit late to the game on this one as these guys released their album back in 2010, but I didn't find them until recently when Spotify recommended the album for me. Spotify doesn't have the greatest recommendation system on earth but this one was spot on and I'm extremely happy to have discovered these guys. Amia Venera Landscape is a post-hardcore band with more talent than most bands in this genre.

Check Out The New Jason Richardson Preview

Jason Richardson, the former guitarist for Born Of Osiris and current guitarist for Chelsea Grin is set to release a solo track at the end of the month. The track is a 10 minute instrumental and judging from the preview will showcase his guitar chops very well. It would be interesting to see Richardson become the Jeff Loomis of deathcore. I would at least like to see him tackle a solo album.

New For Today Song 'Fight The Silence'

I've always enjoyed For Today's music, they may use bass drops a bit too often but, their music is pretty catchy and can hit hard when it needs to. I wasn't as taken with Immortal as I was with Breaker and Portraits, but all of their albums are enjoyable. Today the band has announced a new album coming in 2014 and also released a single entitled 'Fight The Silence'.

Band Of The Week: Silence The Messenger

Silence The Messenger are a deathcore outfit from Texas who've just recently released their debut album entitled Achilles. The band has been active since 2010 when they released their EP Buried, but their major label debut packs quite a punch and has been garnering a decent amount of attention.
