FEAR FACTORY - New track 'Dielectric' premieres online



Pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal FEAR FACTORY have premiered a new track online. 'Dielectric' is taken from the band's much anticipated metallic masterpiece, Genexus and can be heard here:



The album's title GENEXUS is a hybrid of two words: GENESIS and NEXUS. This word describes the next transition in human evolution as man moves forward to a 'mechanical' state of being. "The album is a record of thought patterns, psychology and struggles of the Genexus generation. The cognitive machine has arrived and it wants autonomy from the industry that created it. This machine struggles, like every other human has throughout the course of history. This is the story of every one of us", explains front man Burton C. Bell. Whereas the first two tracks on GENEXUS deal with themes of new machinery taking over the old and the enhancement of technology in the process, Dielectric deals with this new machinery learning about it's capabilities and the advantages. Burton describes this transition: "After it's enhancement the model learns that it's power is protected in many ways. It has the ability to withstand enormous amounts of energy flowing through it's form and has the ability to conduct the energy with it's own determination. It cannot be deterred by hate or violence. The model will withstand all attacks and remain intact."

FEAR FACTORY's 9th studio album and Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut will be in stores on August 7th worldwide.

Genexus was produced by vocalist Burton C. Bell & guitarist Dino Cazares and co-produced by long-time collaborator Rhys Fulber. The album was mixed by famed British producer and engineer, Andy Sneap (ARCH ENEMY, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD). Artwork was once again handled by artist Anthony Clarkson. Drums on Genexus were performed by Mike Heller (MALIGNANCY).

GENEXUS track list:

1. Autonomous Combat System 2. Anodized 3. Dielectric 4. Soul Hacker 5. Protomech 6. Genexus 7. Church Of Execution 8. Regenerate 9. Battle For Utopia 10. Expiration Date LIMITED DIGIPACK BONUS TRACKS: 11. Mandatory Sacrifice (Genexus Remix) 12. Enhanced Reality

Formed in Los Angeles back in 1989, FEAR FACTORY changed the world of metal and have become a huge influence on the genre ever since their inception. The band’s unique sound helped bridge the gap between death metal, grindcore, thrash and industrial on landmark releases like Soul Of A New Machine, Demanufacture and the gold-selling release, Obsolete.

The Hell Within Teaser - Slash Fiction



JUPITER FALLS - New, young heavy rock guitar heroes release blistering debut album ‘Revolution’ on August 10th, via Broken Road Records



Jupiter Falls are an immensely gifted young metal / hard rock quintet, who mix anthemic, classic rock foundations with a modern, heavy alt-rock edge, to create a fresh sound that’s sure to inspire fans of breathtaking guitar pyrotechnics, and hard-hitting, groove-laden hooks. Forming in Leeds in 2013, and fast amassing a fanbase far and wide, following touring with Jake E Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel in France and the UK in 2014, Jupiter Falls are now set to release their highly accomplished debut album ‘Revolution’ on August 10th, via Broken Road Records.

‘Revolution’’s awesomely crisp sound comes courteous of legendary producer Roy Z, known for his work with major names such as Judas Priest, Yngwie Malmsteen and Bruce Dickinson. Jupiter Falls were introduced to Roy by their former manager, and as singer James Hart tells it, “We were just having a night in our studio with a few beers when we got a Skype out of the blue and it was Roy. We were totally taken off guard, especially when he said how much he loved our music”.

What Roy fell in love with was an incredible blend of superlative technical skills, and solid, powerful heavy rock songwriting, influenced by the likes of Guns ‘n’ Roses, Dio, Alter Bridge, Shinedown and Avenged Sevenfold. At the fore of Jupiter Falls’ dynamic sound are James’ distinctive yet versatile vocals, which move easily from gravelly growl to rich melody, and the amazing skills of lead guitarist Deano Silk, who consistently delivers memorable riffs and breathtaking solos throughout ‘Revolution’.

The pair started collaborating after James saw a YouTube clip of Deano playing. “The guy just blew me away!”, James remembers, and three weeks later they were in the studio together, writing what would become ‘Revolution’. Next, they assembled the stunningly tight rhythm section, consisting of rhythm guitarist Zachari Daniels, bassist Dan Clark, and drummer Lewie Lewington, who conspire to create Jupiter Falls’ booming bottom end, adding a pulverizing weight and depth to the sound.

The lead single, ‘Chasing The Dragon’, out as a download on August 3rd, is a strong indicator of the quality of the material in store. A swinging hard rocker, with several shades of Slash in its chugging freight-train riffs and fluid, fast-fingered solos, the song serves as a superb introduction to Jupiter Falls’ songwriting, which draws freely from the classic canon right through to modern icons over the course of ‘Revolution’s 12 tracks.

On the album opener ‘Awake’, which begins with a reading of the children’s bedtime prayer ‘Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep’ (doubtless familiar to metalheads everywhere from a certain other song!), James’ sings with an appropriately Hetfield-esque snarl, while for the brooding story of betrayal ‘When The Time Is Right’, he delivers an aching and emotive vocal, perfectly complemented by Deano’s seething guitarlines.

As confidently as they pen slow-burners such as ‘When The Time Is Right’, and searing rock ballad ‘World War Three’, Jupiter Falls can also unleash sheer brutal aggression. ‘Forgiven’ is one fine example of the album’s heavier moments, where staccato riffing and moody guitar melodies mesh with Lewie’s merciless machine gun-fire drumming in an incredible intro. Elsewhere, the grooving, Latino-flavoured ‘Lei E Quella’ serves up one of Deano’s most transcendent solos, before the epic, keyboard-led arrangements of closing track ‘Where Are You Now?’ round off the record in spectacular style, and reinforces the point that Jupiter Falls are one seriously exciting, exceptionally talented new act.

WE CAME AS ROMANS - New Self-Titled Album To Be Released July 24th via Spinefarm Records



We Came As Romans have officially announced their highly anticipated self-titled new album, which will be released July 24th, 2015 via Spinefarm Records. The album was recorded with multi-platinum, award-winning producer David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Paramore, Of Mice & Men), and is now available for pre-order at one of the following links:

iTunes
WCAR UK merch store



“Writing this record with David Bendeth was very intense,” states vocalist Dave Stephens. “If a song wasn't great, it was rewritten until it was, and if it still wasn't great, it was cut. We wrote close to 40 songs for this record and only ten made the album. Beyond becoming better writers and musicians, it made us stronger as a band and as a team.”

Today, We Came As Romans release a brand new song taken from the album. Fans can now stream the lead single, “The World I Used To Know” via soundcloud.

The band explains the new song by stating, “When we were younger, we had a youthful spirit that made us less fearful of the changing world around us. Even though we've lost that and are now more aware of the negativity in the world, we need to remember those days and view the world with a hopeful spirit.”

“The World I Used To Know” will be offered as an instant grat track when pre-ordered digitally from iTunes.

We Came As Romans – Track-listing

Buried In Verona "Vultures Above, Lions Below" released 7 August 2015 via UNFD



Buried In Verona have been through hell. Deceived by those they trusted most and staring oblivion in the face, the core of the band regrouped, recruited fresh blood and collectively refused to let the world get the better of them.

And from the wreckage come their best songs yet, fuelled as much by rage as they were by defiance. Vultures Above, Lions Below (UNFD, August 07) is the sound of a band who have decided that nothing less than revenge on the world that spat them out will do. It's sometimes easy to forget their pedigree – Notorious and Faceless hit #20 and #15 on the ARIA chart in 2012 and 2014 respectively – but events of the past year conspired to push them to their limits.

Written, produced and recorded entirely by the band – Brett Anderson (vocals), Richie Newman (guitar), Mark Harris (guitar), Brandon Martel (bass) and James Swanson (drums) – it's the most powerful, honest and subsequently exciting album to ever wear the Buried In Verona name.

But in order to move forward, they had to pay homage to the past. Only Brett and Richie are counted as alumni from past albums; the new guys were plunged into a situation where it was sink-or-swim time, both for them trying to prove themselves and for the band as a whole.

“Mark had a massive influence on this album,” explains Newman. “He had riffs and song ideas flowing out every day, and was doing such a good job working with us to preserve the old Buried In Verona sound to gel with the new direction we wanted to take. We just let him go because we were onto such a good thing!”

And even though the band have had to do a lot of growing up, the things that still make Buried In Verona who they are are still present and correct – 'Separation''s titanic riff positively drips with bile; 'Done For Good' takes their anthemic sensibilities to new heights and there's a blunt force to 'Extraction' that shows they've lost none of their power.

Nevertheless, threaded throughout the musical chaos is a newfound sense of perspective and loss that was compounded further by the brotherhood between the two longest-serving members of the band. “Brett wrote his lyrics based on everything that is and was going on his world,” continues Newman. “We’ve both been so up and down emotionally, so what I heard really hit me hard, because I know what he’s going through and hearing him sing his heart out on the album was an amazing experience to be a part of.

“I was in a really low point in my life struggling with depression, so everything I was writing lyrically and musically was sounding really depressing. Mark stepped in and helped me put a positive spin on a lot of my songs.”

That duality is present in the likes of 'Can't Be Unsaid', which is a powerful ode to moving on despite a brutal past, and the coldly honest 'Pathways', which examines the impact of one too many hangovers and one too few apologies.

“This whole album is the album we have always wanted to write,” finishes Newman. “It’s the most honest representation of who we are as people – we’ve been through hell and back in a lot of aspects in our lives, and this is the end result.”

URN® Signs with Dark Moon Records; Releases New Album “Epiphany” on August 25, 2015



The U.S.-based dark metal band URN® has inked a deal with Dark Moon Records, a subsidiary of Dark Moon Productions for their new upcoming album, “Epiphany”, to be released world-wide on Tuesday, August 25th, 2015.

Watch URN's "Cast In Amber" Music Video From Their Upcoming Album "Epiphany" Below:



Since 2000, URN® has been on a musical journey exploring the darker aspects of both the conscious mind and the unconscious soul. The band has been captivating audiences across multiple genres and have been establishing themselves as one the more energetic live acts to see. The line-up consists of seasoned veterans formerly of national acts such as The Electric Hellfire Club and Diabolic Intent.

This will be URN’s fifth major release following up their “Consecrated Ashes” EP (2002), “Desecrated Ashes” EP (2003), “Dancing with the Demigods” LP (2006), and “Scribings of a Forgotten Soul” LP (2009).

URN® has drawn comparisons from national trade media to artists such as Type O Negative, Lacuna Coil, Amorphis, Nightwish, My Dying Bride and many similar acts of whom they have shared the stage with over the years and find a certain beauty in darkness.

In addition, the band over the years has collaborated with artists of other mediums such as Michelle Belanger, noted author of the Psychic Vampire Codex and former cast member of A&E’s Paranormal State.

Scott Clendenin, formerly of the pioneering death metal band Death, had been performing with URN® the past two years until his untimely passing this past March due to health complications. The band has dedicated this new album to his memory.

The band has filmed and released a promotional music video for the title track and is currently in talks with a new booking agency for touring plans to support the new release for the fall of 2015 and the majority of 2016.

ATREYU reveal brand new music video for 'Long Live'



Album out September 18th via Search and Destroy/Spinefarm Records

Approximately a year ago, Atreyu – one of the pivotal, definitive groups of the American hard rock and heavy metal scene that dominated the ’00s – emerged from a period of self-imposed dormancy; the musicians played both festivals and sold-out headline shows, released a new song that earned instant social media trending status (‘So Others May Live’), and commenced writing a new album, to the delight of the fans.

Now, the band is gearing up to unleash that album, Long Live, on September 18th via Search and Destory/Spinefarm Records, and there is a swell of activity surrounding the release.

The video for the title track, directed by band bassist Porter McKnight, was released on July 17th.

The band has also revealed the full track-listing for the album, along with the cover art (see below).

Pre-orders for Long Live are available with ticket bundles; fans can pre-order the record here www.longliveatreyu.com or on iTunes.

Drummer Brandon Saller says, “This is my favourite video we’ve ever created. We were fortunate to have our own Porter McKnight at the helm with the art direction and filming. Also, we wanted to make the pre-order options interesting and have items for the true collector. Grab your pre-order and get the title track instantly. Then I recommend going to your car, cranking it up and driving fast while screaming your f**ing head off!"

“Long Live is by far my favourite Atreyu video, which his fitting because our new record, Long Live, is the strongest Atreyu record to date,” adds frontman Alex Varkatzas.

McKnight has provided the art direction for the entire project, from album artwork to promo photos, making the overall set-up truly of the band and by the band...

“To be at the helm of a project that holds so much love and joy for us provides an indescribable sense of excitement and pleasure,” says McKnight. “It is truly a fantastic experience and an honour unlike any I’ve ever known.”



Long Live track-listing:

1. Long Live 2. Live To Labor 3. I Would Kill/Lie/Die (For You) 4. Cut Off The Head 5. A Bitter Broken Memory 6. Do You Know Who You Are 7. Revival (Interlude) 8. Heartbeats And Flatlines 9. Brass Balls 10. Moments Before Dawn 11. Start To Break 12. Reckless

Three Day Millionaires announce new self-titled EP and release show



Kick-arse Hull-based Punk/Rock act Three Day Millionaires have just released their new single 'Behind These Eyes' on Warren Records. Three Day Millionaires is a four-piece hailing from Hull and features former members of Freaks Union, The Living Daylights, Outspoken Silence and Vultures in Vivid Colours. They are Danny Harrison (bass and vocals), Adam Pyrah (guitar), Nick Milner (guitar) and Jamie Dean (drums).

Speaking about their new EP, Danny Harrison comments: “As soon as we had a handful of songs, five or six I'd probably say, we knew we had something. We knew we actually had a band, which at this point didn't even have a name. The name is something that's historically linked with Hull.

"Three Day Millionaires were legends within the city. Real ballers as we'd probably say nowadays. We wanted something relatable, how many times have you been paid or got your student loan through and checked your balance on a Monday and though 'shit...'? That also ties in with some of the lyrical themes in the album. Everything becomes so much more relevant as you get older. I look at what I haven't got, rather than what I have." Three Day Millionaires have been quick to turn heads and have been featured by Alan Raw's BBC Introducing show on Radio Humberside, where they played a live session. Check it out:



Punktastic also streamed the band's latest single, 'Behind These Eyes':



The band's new EP will be unleashed on Friday, July 24 in their hometown of Hull at Haworth Arms, with more tour dates to follow.

Three Day Millionaires have supported acts such as Demob Happy and Scottish melodic-pop-punk band Yeah Detroit, and have gained a following on the local punk and metal scene.

ZEBRAHEAD ANNOUNCE SPLIT EP WITH MAN WITH A MISSION AND UNVEIL NEW VIDEO



Following an epic (and boozy) performance at this year’s Slam Dunk festivals, Zebrahead have announced the European release of their split EP with Man With A Mission.

The first taste of this EP comes in the form of a video for ‘Out of Control’. It was shot in Japan during the band’s visit for Punk Rock Spring 2015 and involved a full-size boxing ring being custom built for the shoot in a huge studio in Kanagawa Prefecture, near Tokyo. The two bands had a great time filming this video, maybe a little too much, given how hung over everyone was the day of the main shoot!

Watch ‘Out of Control’ here:



Man With A Mission hails from Japan and creates their own blend of hard rock and dance pop. Each of the five members wears a differently designed wolf mask for all the gigs. You might recognize their track ‘Higher’, also known as the theme song for Pro Evolution Soccer 2015.

This EP has already hit Number 1 in the Japanese iTunes Rock Chart and reached an impressive Number 2 in the overall physical chart for the whole country.

“We are way excited for the European release of the new EP! We had such a good time writing ‘Out of Control’ with Man With A Mission and hope our friends in Europe enjoy our first collaboration in years… the last one we did was with Motorhead, and hell, that got nominated for a Grammy. #DreamsDoComeTrue #LemmyIsGod” - Ben from zebrahead

Celldweller Releases "Precious One" Lyric Video From 'End of an Empire (Chapter 04: Death)'



Detroit-based electronic rock mastermind Celldweller has released "Precious One," the second single off of End of an Empire (Chapter 04: Death) via Substream Magazine.

The song features Celldweller at his darkest — mixing deep, foreboding lyrics with large, metal-driven music. Substream had this to say about the track:

"It’s probably unlike anything else you’ve heard this year."

Death, released today via FiXT, is the final chapter installment of the four-part End of an Empire series. The full-length LP, which will feature two additional songs yet to be released, is due out later this year. Instead of releasing End of an Empire in a traditional format, Celldweller has released the album in chapters to give fans a better insight to the world he is building with his music. Watch the "Precious One" lyric video:



Celldweller explained the concept of "Precious One" below:

“‘Precious One’ is the track that lyrically attaches itself to the concept of ‘Death.’ I didn’t want to do something predictable and expected, so lyrically, I wrote it from the perspective of the Gatekeeper, who is the character that lovingly ushers people from this life to the next. Musically, when I started this track I only had two goals to shoot for—doom metal meets trip-hop. Hopefully, I pulled it off.”

Not familiar with Celldweller? The Detroit-based artist, who also co-founded and owns his own record label, FiXT, has written music for an array of films, television shows, and video games such as: The X-Men Trilogy, Iron Man 3, Spider Man 2 & 3, Dead Rising 2, Assassin’s Creed II, and more. He’s charted on Billboard the last 2 years, peaking at #15 on the Electronic chart. His music has been streamed over 100 million times across various platforms and his latest single, “New Elysium” is a must-listen cross-genre explosion.

GHOST premiere “From The Pinnacle To The Pit”



Ghost today announced the arrival of “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” from their forthcoming third sacred psalm, Meliora. The song is available to stream HERE and will be available for instant download for those who pre-order the album, along with the previously released track “Cirice”.

Meliora is due out on August 21st via Spinefarm Records/Loma Vista Recordings, and is the follow up to 2013’s heralded Infestissumam.

“We have always had the craving for a truly stomping riff-based song, Led Zeppelin-style. Something that would sound great coming out of a car stereo in an American high school parking lot” – A Nameless Ghoul, regarding “From The Pinnacle To The Pit”

Early praise for Meliora...

About Ghost:

Ghost released their second album Infestissumam on April 16th, 2013 via Spinefarm Records/Loma Vista Recordings. The 10-song offering was produced by Grammy® Award-winning producer, Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville, TN, and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. SPIN called the album, "one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013”, and Pitchfork praised its “addictive as sin” hooks. Rolling Stone described their sound as “somewhere between Mastodon and Metallica, with a heavy dose of Swedish synth mixed in”. In November of 2013, the band released If You Have Ghost, a five-track EP recorded and produced by Dave Grohl, including cover versions of songs by Roky Erickson, ABBA, Army of Lovers, and Depeche Mode. Ghost have toured the U.S. extensively and appeared at various music festivals across the country, including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Rock on the Range.

About September Mourning:

September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as David Bowie, Motionless in White, KISS, Paramore and My Chemical Romance.

“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is a piece of the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”

The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Mencomics and went on to form both Image and Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic novel form, to accompany, and enhance the storyline and musical message.

September Mourning carries positive passions into its music, which is often operatic, but also completely rock ‘n’ roll in all its majestic glory.

Having toured with Marilyn Manson, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.”

LAMB OF GOD - unleashes official ‚Overlord‘ music video



Richmond, VA based heavy rock band LAMB OF GOD will release their highly-anticipated seventh full-length album, »VII: Sturm und Drang«, July 24, 2015 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment with whom the band signed a record deal for all territories outside of North America.



LAMB OF GOD have just revealed the official music video for their brand new track ‚Overlord‘. ‚Overlord' is directed by Jorge Torres-Torres.



'Overlord' is what some may consider the most unique and versatile track on the record – a new play on the revered LAMB OF GOD sound. The track 'Overlord‘ uniquely features clean vocals and lyrics penned by vocalist Randy Blythe, and the video itself features his own personal concept and treatment.

“For years I've wished that I could have a movie camera directly linked to my brain so that some of the ideas I see in my mind's eye could be translated into film for others to watch,” Blythe begins. “Although that is obviously an impossibility (and probably a good thing- I find many things amusing that might not be so funny to everyone else), the video for 'Overlord' is the next best thing for me. I came up with the idea and wrote the treatment for this video myself- to see Jorge (the director) take my concept, add his own touches, and use his technical know-how to translate my "mental script" into a suitably dark visual narrative is just an awesome, awesome experience for me.

I wrote the song about the dangers of self-obsession in our distressingly myopic and increasingly entitled "me-now/now-me" culture; just like the couple in the video, many people can't seem to look past their own relatively small problems to see the bigger picture: the world is in serious trouble. Having a bad day at work, or a fight with your significant other, or getting a crappy haircut or table service does not in any way shape or form constitute an emergency. Sometimes things just don't work out the way we want them to- deal with it. People who only see their own problems eventually wind up alone because no one wants to hear their crap anymore- we all know someone like that, always whining and complaining about some inconsequential setback as if it were the apocalypse. This song is for those people.

Oh yeah- if you're out and about, watching the video on your pocket hate machine (mobile phone), try not to wander into traffic. A little situational awareness goes a long way."

WE CAME AS ROMANS Announce New Self-Titled Album - To Be Released July 24th via Spinefarm Records



Performing on the Main Stage All Summer Long on the 2015 Vans Warped Tour

We Came As Romans have officially announced their highly anticipated self-titled new album, which will be released July 24th, 2015 via Spinefarm Records. The album was recorded with multi-platinum, award-winning producer David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Paramore, Of Mice & Men), and is now available for pre-order at one of the following links:

iTunes

WCAR UK merch store

“Writing this record with David Bendeth was very intense,” states vocalist Dave Stephens. “If a song wasn't great, it was rewritten until it was, and if it still wasn't great, it was cut. We wrote close to 40 songs for this record and only ten made the album. Beyond becoming better writers and musicians, it made us stronger as a band and as a team.”

Today, We Came As Romans release a brand new song taken from the album. Fans can now stream the lead single, “The World I Used To Know” via soundcloud.

The band explains the new song by stating, “When we were younger, we had a youthful spirit that made us less fearful of the changing world around us. Even though we've lost that and are now more aware of the negativity in the world, we need to remember those days and view the world with a hopeful spirit.”

“The World I Used To Know” will be offered as an instant grat track when pre-ordered digitally from iTunes.
