EYES SET TO KILL – New video is up!

“Broken Frames”, the new video from EYES SET TO KILL, is available for viewing below. The song is the title track of the band’s third album, which was released on June 8 via BreakSilence Records.

Singer Alexia Rodriguez:

Andrew Wade is really the first producer that ever challenged us as a band and took us out of our comfort zone. He made us try things that we probably wouldn’t have done in the past. Andrew had me try a lot of different things and he was the one that suggested I try singing an octave higher for this record, which really helped me try and find my voice as a vocalist.
“On our last record we were concentrating so hard on writing solid songs that we forgot to visualize how they would work in a live setting,” added guitarist Greg Kerwin. “With this record we wanted to make sure that the material would make our fans go crazy when they see us live, but still be fun for us to play live.”

“Broken Frames” track list:

01. All You Ever Knew (3:10)
02. Broken Frames (2:53)
03. The Listening (3:33)
04. Ticking Bombs (3:34)
05. Play The Part (2:39)
06. Falling Fast (3:34)
07. Catch Your Breath (0:27)
08. Ryan (3:10)
09. Inside the Eye (3:23)
10. Two Letter Sins (3:01)
11. Escape (4:19)
12. Let Me In (4:18)

GODHATE – New video is up!

“Godhate” is the new video from GODHATE and it can be viewed below. The song comes off the band’s new album, “Equal In The Eyes Of Death”, which was released in January via Metal Age Productions.

“Equal In The Eyes Of Death” track list:

01. John 3:18
02. Godhate
03. Penance For The Wicked
04. In Praise Of Sin
05. Infinity Shall Be
06. Equal In The Eyes Of Death
07. Alla Xul Kanpa
08. Dark Funeral
09. Antichristianity
10. In Anger With Life
11. The End

Guitarist/vocalist Tony Freed says:

“This is the first video I made for GODHATE and it was intended to be just a test to see if I could manage the editing program and later on make a real video for the song ‘In Praise Of Sin’. But as some of you know me, it turned out to be a more serious project than I planned for. And now that it is finished it would be a pity not letting this thing out. Anyhow, I’m pretty satisfied with the result. It has a good background story that goes in line with the lyrics and it is as dark and raw as I wanted it to be.”

CRIMSON GLORY – New box set release NOT approved by the band…

Florida-based melodic metal veterans CRIMSON GLORY have released the following statement:

CRIMSON GLORY does not recognize nor sanction the new CD releases or box sets made by Metal Mind Records (Poland). They are producing our CDs illegally and thus have ZERO rights to market, promote, advertise, release, distribute or sell any of our material; therefore they have ZERO rights to make any profit from our image, likeness or music.

“This has been an ongoing battle between CRIMSON GLORY and Metal Mind ever since Roadrunner Records . . . illegally [sold] the rights (which they did not possess) to the Polish record company in 2007. It is a glaring example of what a shambles the music industry has become, and it is crucial to the band that their fans recognize the reality of the situation.”

Commented CRIMSON GLORY lead guitarist and founding member Jon Drenning: “We have become disenfranchised from our own music, with everybody making a profit from our efforts but us! As a group of hard-working dedicated musicians who have now given 25 years of our lives and hearts to this band and this music, it is beyond heart-breaking to watch these companies profit from [these] actions. This music is our passion; creating each record has been a labor of love, and what’s happening to us and our music right now is frustrating and insulting.”

He added, “We wish to make it perfectly clear to our friends and fans out there, all over the world, that these and any other albums or releases are not being produced or distributed with our permission, and that the money they wish to spend on our records is money that we as a band have earned but will never see until this matter is properly resolved.

“In the meantime, CRIMSON GLORY is presently negotiating with other labels regarding the remastering, re-releasing and future distribution of all of our material, and anything to do with the band regarding album releases, tour dates, promotional material, etc., will be shared via official press releases and the CRIMSON GLORY MySpace and Facebook pages ONLY.”

CONVERGE [usa] + SUPPORT | 08 JULY 2010 | LISBOA | REVOLVER BAR

North-Americans CONVERGE have defined themselves over nearly two decades as one of the few bands who definitely forge their own path. They return with their seventh full-length “Axe to Fall”, the third release for indie institution Epitaph Records and quite probably the best in their already legendary career.

There might not ever be another Black Flag, but bands like CONVERGE carry that banner of unique artistry and unrestrained ferocity. Formed during the rise and subsequent fall of the legendary Boston hardcore scene and experiencing numerous line-up changes, one has to necessarily highlight the captivating artwork and introspective lyrics of vocalist and visual design terrorist Jacob Bannon.

Discussions about their musical canon appear to be complicated as almost every album is genre-defining. This has established them as trendsetters and innovators, setting new standards in hardcore and metal with each release, evolving from their thrash-inspired, hardcore-drenched beginnings to slower, more ominous and atmospheric works.

In charge of setting off this unique extreme music session are Lisbon’s BEFORE THE TORN with their heavy riff hardcore. The forever explosive act of WE ARE THE DAMNED is then expected to raise the fever, opening up for CONVERGE in an ambient of predictable chaos.

CANCER BATS TO TOUR ACROSS CANADA THIS SUMMER

After spending the past month igniting stages across Europe with Bullet For My Valentine and Atreyu, the CANCER BATS return home this summer to bring their mountainous grooves and explosive blend of punk and metal to venues across Canada.

Since releasing their third studio album Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones in April, the Juno nominated CANCER BATS have graced the pages of Eye Weekly, Revolver, Kerrang!, Alternative Press, and countless other top-tier publications across the globe. They tore up the stage in front of 40,000 people at Download Festival, raged with the crowds of over 150,000 at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in Germany and played alongside heavyweights Every Time I Die, Billy Talent, Alexisonfire and Norma Jean. The CANCER BATS recently had a song featured in Canadian Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Splice’ starring Sarah Polley, which hit theatres June 4th and were inducted into the rock band song network, with four of their tracks now available to download for PS3 and XBOX.

http://www.rockband.com/music/artists/Cancer_Bats

Before heading to the west coast to begin their tour across Canada, the CANCER BATS will perform at the 2010 S.C.E.N.E Music Festival in St. Catharines and will be part of the brand new “COOL TOUR” which will be hitting cities across the US in July. In association with Metal Blade Records, Atticus Black by Atticus Clothing, and Musician’s Institute College of Contemporary Music, the “COOL TOUR” features As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Architects, and many more. The tour has one Canadian stop in Toronto.

“When you see the Cancer Bats’ new songs being played in front of 40,000 maniacs in the bright Download sunshine, you have the right ingredients for one of the best sets of the weekend thus far…Dropping their cover of the Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ like an atom bomb and ending with the punishing ‘Sleep This Away’, the Bats turn Donington park into their own beer-swilling, bring-a-keg party zone. Whose house is this? The motherf**king Cancer Bats’ house!”

ATROCITY Featuring YASMIN – ‘After The Storm’ release dates, cover art and track list

“After The Storm”, the new “project album” from Germany’s ATROCITY featuring frontman Alexander Krull‘s sister Yasmin, will be released on the following dates:

Sep. 1 – Spain
Sep. 4 – Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Sweden
Sep. 6 – Rest of Europe
Sep. 14 – USA, Canada

The CD was produced by Krull at Mastersound Studio.


The Track list:
01. A New Arrival
02. Call Of Yesteryear
03. After The Storm
04. Silvan Spirit
05. Black Mountain
06. As The Sun Kissed The Sky
07. Transilvania
08. The Flight Of Abbas Ibn Firnas
09. Goddess Of Fortune And Sorrow
10. The Otherworld
11. Eternal Nightside

Commented Krull:

“Fans and musicians of the band have been waiting much too long for the continuation of ‘Calling The Rain’. Now time has finally come and we just can’t wait to let our fans hear and enjoy the new songs. We are incredibly happy with the result. The songs contain great rhythms, the music is sounding very special and organic, moreover, the energetic vocals together with the mythological based lyrics convey a magic atmosphere.  Well, once more it’s time to take blinkers off! Just listen, and it will take you away!”

According to a press release, “After The Storm”:

“does not simply repeat the collaboration, but elevates the songwriting and production to a new level. All instruments were performed live and a huge amount of percussions allows for a tapestry of complementary rhythms. The driving and tribal-like beats are the foundation of ATROCITY‘s music and allows for an intense and fascinating atmosphere. The string instruments and vocals harmonize perfectly with the mood of the individual songs and with the whole music respectively. Besides wonderful atmospheric songs such as the title track ‘After The Storm’ or the emotional ‘Silvan Spirit’, true rock songs like ‘Black Mountain’ or the anthem ‘Transilvania’ show a completely new side to a metal band. With the mystical songs ‘A New Arrival’ and ‘As The Sun Kissed The Sky’ or the music turned Celtic legend ‘The Otherworld’, ATROCITY, together with the exotic vocals of Yasmin, takes the audience into a mythological world. The band featuring the singing siblings Alex and Yasmin switches to high gear with the catchy song ‘Call Of Yesteryear’!”
