New Song From Wovenwar 'All Rise'!

So Wovenwar was revealed as the project name for the other members of As I Lay Dying with the addition of the clean vocalist from Oh, Sleeper on board. An interesting choice to add a second clean vocalist instead of a new guy to handle screamed vocals, but these guys are making the music they want to make and Shane Blay is an excellent clean vocalist. This new band has posted their first single 'All Rise' and boy does this song jam. The instrumentation has always been a really strong part of As I Lay Dying and these guys have in no way lost their touch.

Band Of The Week: Brutality Will Prevail

I don't listen to a ton of hardcore, but when I do I prefer ambient/doom inspired hardcore. Bands like Harm's Way and Dead End Path really hit the nail on the head for what I want out of hardcore music. It should feel like it's played by a lumbering giant with a guitar somehow magically made out of thunder. Brutality Will Prevail add a third point to this hardcore triangle, with a major focus on creating dark atmosphere in their sound, they fit in perfectly with the other two bands and make for a fantastic listen.

3rd Whitechapel Studio Video Posted For 'Our Endless War'!

God, I gotta give a hand to Naughty Mantis. Every one of these videos has been phenomenally put together. The shot choices and music have been spot on. This video is the third video from Whitechapel's studio sessions for the new album Our Endless War, and this video focuses on the vocal tracking for the bands front man Phil Bozeman and some of the meaning behind the lyrics he wrote on this album.

New Super Massive Black Holes Album Due Out This Month!

To say that Canada's Super Massive Black Holes are an exciting group, is to put things lightly. The band offers a really refreshing taste of metal music blended with awesome flairs of influences from plenty of other genres. Their new album Calculations Of The Ancients is due to release on April 29th, but for now we've got one song to preview from it!

Band Of The Week: Ease Of Disgust

I've been waiting for a new release from Ease Of Disgust the moment I heard their previous album Chaos. This Russian outfit has a great sound, with awesome technical and melodic flairs thrown into a very strong understanding of the great aspects about deathcore.

New Song From Hour Of Penance!

Hour Of Penance match Fleshgod Apocalypse in sheer insanity, but land somewhere closer to Behemoth as far as overall tone goes. The band has been hard at work on their latest album Regicide and are working towards a May 13th release date for it. In the meantime thought they've since put out two new songs, the latest of which is fresh off the press!

Check Out Whitechapel's Second Studio Update!

We're drawing closer and closer to the release of Whitechapel's new album, and the guys are doing a good job keeping anticipation levels high. They released the second part of a series of studio updates, this time mainly focuses on guitars, with a bit of the drums in there too. You get a great peek at some of the low tuned riffs and more technical leads they are throwing in, with a nice ambient acoustic part int here as well!

Since the whole situation with Tim Lambesis got started the status of the 4 other members of As I Lay Dying has remained unknown until this past few days. While we don't have any real concrete details on what exactly is going on, we know that these four guys are making new music as evidenced by Instagram videos of all the members working on stuff in the studio.

Band Of The Week: Science Of Sleep

Science Of Sleep is a German deathcore outfit who released their debut LP back in June, and boy is it a hell of a debut album. I didn't find these until a few weeks ago, but I've been listening to Exhaust a ton since finding them. The album is a great listen, addictive, and hits incredibly hard.

Whitechapel Post New Studio Video!

Whitechapel's new album is less than a month away now, which is most definitely exciting. The band has posted the first of a series of videos documenting the writing and recording process of the new album, and while this initial video doesn't show any new material it's still an interesting watch and Naughty Mantis productions did a fantastic job with the video. Very filmic feel to it.
