Ironstone: Australian Progressive Metal Band Release New EP Prophecy on May 29th!

Australian progressive metal band IRONSTONE are set to release their debut EP Prophecy on the 29th of May 2020. They revealed the artwork and track list (see below). The band released a video for the song Bound late last year as a taste of what will hit you on May 29th.


IRONSTONE are:
Dan Charlton – Lead Vocals
Edward Warren – Lead Guitar, Vocals
Aidan Kalms – Rhythm Guitar
Oliver Hosking – Bass Guitar
Jackson Whyte – Drums, Vocals

Mixed and Mastered by Chris Themelco of Monolith Studios

Tracklist

1 Downpour
2 Bound
3 Better Unseen
4 Killed A Man
5 Hollow
6 Origin

IRONSTONE say about their EP: “We are thrilled to present our debut EP ‘Prophecy’ to the world. This collection of songs covers a broad range of feelings, from heavy and serious subject matter through to the quirky and light hearted. Being a first release for us and having evolved so much in the last few years, we feel especially philosophical about our direction as a band and our path as young adults. ‘Prophecy’ is about acknowledging the overwhelming doubt of what the future holds and casting that aside in order to take control of our own reality. It flows and integrates from hopelessness to empowerment, from caution to impulsivity and encourages a journey of self-discovery that is vaguely familiar yet somehow completely new.“

To help fund the EP release IRONSTONE have launched a crowd funding campaign with POZIBLE, but this isn’t about asking for hand outs. It’s actually a great opportunity to preorder digital downloads, signed CDs, T shirts and other cool merch. Plus there are some more personalized rewards that you couldn’t get anywhere else. It’s a fantastic way to support the band!

Influenced by a range of metal genres, IRONSTONE’s music features the duality of clean and distorted vocals, djent driven riffs and breakdowns, atmospheric layers and catchy choruses. The result is a contemporary metal sound that is sophisticated, melodic and hard hitting.

BLACK ABSINTHE Postpones Ontario Tour Dates!

Toronto’s BLACK ABSINTHE announces they will be postponing their April and May show dates in Oshawa, Toronto, London, and Ottawa due to the global Covid 19 situation. The mini Ontario tour was to be in support of their latest single/music video ‘Witness’ that the trio released in follow up to their 2016 breakout album “Early Signs of Denial” that was produced by Dave Baksh (Sum 41, Black Cat Attack). The album garnered praise from respectable outlets such as Bravewords “The record has emphasis of crushing modern tone, polished instrumental sections, soaring vocals and a blending of contemporary and classic metal.” and Blabbermouth “BLACK ABSINTHE does quite a bit within each of their songs, wrangling together bits of metal theories from yesteryear and today. Classic metal, power metal, death metal, thrash, it’s all dosed out like party pills for headbangers.”  along with topping the Canadian College Radio National Loud Charts at #7 for July 2016 (Earshot).

The band issued the following statement:
“We reflect now on the joy playing live brought us, and the importance of bringing people together for the music.  
Our friends at home and throughout Ontario are the best part of playing live. We’ll be back with an amazing live show and new music, to thank you all for being there for us, and supporting the new video for ‘Witness.’
The postponement of this tour comes with the belief that we will be back on the road when it is safe, coordinated, and with all bands currently involved.”
The music video for “Witness” can be viewed HERE along with it on Spotify, Bandcamp and Apple Music.
BLACK ABSINTHE’s new single “Witness” was recorded in the backwoods of Lac-des-Loups, QC at Wolf Lake Studios with producer Alexander Galley (Loviatar, Dissentient, Martyrs). Representing a new generation of heavy music producers, Galley’s enthusiasm, knowledge, and openness confirmed he would bring a cutting edge sensibility to the band’s recording of the track. A forward-thinking producer with an ear to the ground of the emerging sounds of heavy music, his direction for guitar and bass tone for the song was a vision all his own. Reminiscent of the classic metal philosophy and in an intense ten-hour blitz, BLACK ABSINTHE went into the studio knowing they wanted to record the song in its entirety and bask in the completed performance. Equipped with an Ayotte house-kit in the studio, Austin Henderson laid down drum tracks to set the foundation of the track for the session. Following, bassist Kyle Scarlett and guitarist Jack Cerre both tuned up and recorded with their stage Fenders. Housing exceptional gear, BLACK ABSINTHE utilized the studio’s Kemper Profiler and boutique bass gear (Darkglass Electronics). 
Guitarist and lead vocalist Jack Cerre comments: 
“All in all the experience was exhilarating, especially under pressure, our preparation paid off because the recording captures a true performance and urgency.” 
The video for the single “Witness” was shot at Toronto heavy metal venue Coalition T.O just months before its unfortunate closure. The venue itself holds a very dear spot in the metal hearts of the band as they lived and performed just steps away from it for the last four years, meeting local and touring bands along with rocking out their own relentless run of shows. 
Trusting Katherine Kwan, “The Wild” (2017) director to encapsulate the energy felt in the band’s live performances. The video begins with a glimpse into what a night at their local and beloved punk/metal Kensington Market venue was like. From the bright pit footage to the intoxicating strobe saturated drum breakdown – the single is represented in the best and most chaotic way possible.
“The insanity of the front row has been the proving grounds of Black Absinthe’s sound, and the foreground to this video.” The band adds. “Live shows took the placeholder for releasing music over the past three years, and the energy in this video is how you will always find us live. We want this video to transcend people who have been there while offering a snapshot of underground metal venues found across the globe.” adds the band.

Postponed Show Dates:
April 10 – Oshawa, ON – The Atria w/ Pink Cocoon, Sun Below
April 11 – Toronto, ON – Duffy’s Tavern w/ Pink Cocoon, Cherry Hooker
April 22 – London, ON – Call The Office w/ Chris Holmes and The Mean Men
April 25 – Toronto, ON – Duffy’s Tavern w/ Leather Up Your Ass
May 16 – Toronto, ON – Hard Luck Bar w/ Metallian, Ammo
May 22 – Ottawa, ON – Dominion Tavern w /JunkOwl, Doom & Blue
