ENABLER – The great Midwest cities of Milwaukee (WI), Dayton (OH) and Minneapolis (MN) are home to the unbelievably savage: ENABLER. Ever since I (finally) started to listen to their new EP, Shift Of Redemption, this band has made my Metal week! ENABLER fuses Metal, Hardcore and Punk into their own seamless form. If you’re into this scene of Hardcore Metal, get ready, cause ENABLER will smash you senseless!

Founding member, guitarist and vocalist Jeff Lohrber exhibits a top-tier Hardcore performance on this EP; as does this entire band and they have a raging chemistry that boils over through each song. If ENABLER’s musical hostility can’t get your ass moving, then, you’re already six feet beneath the ground. ENABLER has proven to me they are a fiery force to reckon with within this genre and Shift Of Redemption only magnifies my said belief. Metal be thy name.

Empire Of Rats - S:T - promo cover pic

A389 Recordings this week proclaims the signing of Columbus, Ohio-based death-dealers EMPIRE OF RATS and the impending release of their vindictive self-titled debut full-length recording this Autumn.

A cast of warriors who have collectively done time in Palehorse, Under One Flag, Pitboss 2000 and countless others unify in their hateful talents in EMPIRE OF RATS, forming a devastating style which is a brutal reminder that heavy hardcore is alive and well. On their self-titled debut LP these scene-veterans have created a perfect record that is sincere, energetic and unapologetically pissed-off without coming off as paint-by-numbers, an eleven-anthem dose of metallic, unsuppressed aggression with a style that will inspire fans of Hatebreeed, 100 Demons, Cold As Life, Ringworm, Crucified, Homewrecker and the like to seek street revenge on their enemies in no time. Bearing cover art by Linas Garsys, the deal is sealed and now A389 will release the album via download and 12” vinyl on October 1st, 2013.

Today Lambgoat dishes out the first public beatdown from Empire Of Ratswith an exclusive stream of the track “Another Minute In Hell” - CLICK HERE TO UNLEASH.

Having stormed crowds live regionally across American wastelands including pit-fueled sets at U.S. festivals including The Rumble, This Is Hardcore and more, EMPIRE OF RATS will announce new live throwdowns and tour actions in support of the looming LP over the coming months.

Empire Of Rats - Track Listing:

1. Leeches

2. Another Minute In Hell

3. Bottomless Pit

4. Untitled

5. Society’s Zero

6. Rats Reign

7. Sinking

8. Little From The World

9. We’re Dead

10. Exposed

11. Early Mourning

Critical Praise:

“Full of Hell want to open wounds however they can. The four-piece is so focused on delivering bile-soaked fury that they’ll use nearly anything at their disposal. While most of the tracks are acrid flashes of grind and powerviolence, there are still treks through squeamish noise and torturous hardcore. Seems like there’s always new releases by these guys, but this is the best I’ve heard so far.” – Decibel

“…Rudiments of Mutilation is an incredible album that should not go unheard. It is sick, unnerving, excellently established, moody, violent, and one of the best damn records that will be put out this year. You want dark? Here it is motherfuckers. Eat it up. 9.5/10″ – Metal Injection

BL’AST! – An Unreleased Recording Session Brought To Life By Dave Grohl

Posted in hardcore, hardcore metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 5, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

BL'AST! - promo cover pic - Blood!

Set For September Release Via Southern Lord

_____________________________________

As far as stories of lost and found recorded material go, few tales can be told where all the pieces of the puzzle come together in fortunate ways, resulting in a brand new recording that surprised even the band themselves.

Having formed in 1982, infamous Santa Cruz hardcore legends BL’AST! released their first album, The Power of Expression in 1985. This debut blew everyone away and went on to become one of the highly sought after, “must- have” hardcore albums of the ‘80s. BL’AST! was beyond intense, continually pushing the boundaries of hardcore with their advanced musicianship, unstoppable energetic delivery and explosive live performances. This overwhelming power caught the attention of SST records, who released the band’s second album, It’s In My Blood in 1987.

Their third LP, Take The Manic Ride, was then released by the label in 1989. BL’AST!‘s wide-eyed, ambitious approach and intense perseverance became an influence for many bands to come. Shortly after the release of Take The Manic Ride, the band broke up and their story was buried by time and dust….UNTIL NOW!

Earlier this year BL’AST! guitarist Mike Neider contacted Southern Lord with news that he had found some mysterious old BL’AST! master tapes in an abandoned storage locker. Greg Anderson, a BL’AST! fanatic, wasted no time in sending the tapes to a studio to be baked. Needless to say, after 25 years gathering dust, the quality had deteriorated. Still, nobody could have anticipated what would follow. With the audio digitized, Southern Lord contacted fellow longtime BL’AST! fiend, Dave Grohl about mixing this recording, his response was an enthusiastic “FUCK YEAH!, LETS DO THIS”!

BL'AST! - Large Band Logo - red:black:white

Whilst inside Grohl’s famous 606 Studios (and with the Neve console as featured in the recent Grohl produced documentary Sound City) an astonishing discovery was made; a completely unheard, unreleased BL’AST! recording session from the mid-‘80s.

The lineup of the band at the time of the recording included second guitarist William Duvall (from Neon Christ, and now the current vocalist for Alice In Chains) who had moved from his hometown of Atlanta out to Santa Cruz on a tip from mutual friends, Corrosion of Conformity, to join the band. Unfortunately, his tenure with BL’AST! was short-lived and no recordings from that lineup were ever released.

From the thunderous bass intro of “Only Time Will Tell” to the apocalyptic warnings of “It’s In My Blood,” the album completely rips and rages from start to finish. All parties involved were completely amazed at how vibrant, unique and fresh this newly discovered material sounded. All things considered, it is miraculous the record survived this long and that everyone who was involved in bringing this recording to life, could be. Everything fell into place, when it could have easily crumbled along the way. This record is a time capsule that is meant to be heard!

There is no doubt in our minds that Blood! will be a crucial purchase for any current hardcore fiend as well as punk/hardcore fans who loved the band back in the day. START THE MACHINE!

Blood will see release via Southern Lord in North America on September 3, 2013. Stay tuned for further details to be unearthed. For now, check out a brand new visual trailer including the cover art for Blood! and more RIGHT HERE.

COUNTERPARTS has the Hardcore world waiting in anticipation for their third studio album, The Difference Between Hell and Home, which is set for a July 23rd release. Heartbreaking and honest, chaotic yet purposeful, fans can expect the same spitting aggression and emotive lyricism they’ve come to appreciate from COUNTERPARTS, magnified and turned all the way up.

Vocalist, Brendan Murphy comments, “There was so much preparation, thought, hard work, whatever you want to call it put into this record. We spent more time on these songs than I can even remember, and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It’s everything we’ve ever done so far, but better. If you give a shit about Counterparts, you will like this record.”

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS “Walk Through Exits Only” – Some METAL Thoughts…

Posted in Extreme Metal, hardcore, hardcore metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on June 9, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals - Walk through exits only - promo cover

Philip H. Anselmo needs no introduction to any Metal fan on this planet. Metal legend. ‘Nuff said. Now, the coveted Metal resume of Philip H. Anselmo is expanding once again with his newest band: Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. A July 16th release date has been set for the release of his band’s album: Walk Through Exits Only.

Just the album title alone can easily sum up the path that Philip H. Anselmo has taken during his multi-brilliant Metal career. Philip H. Anselmo has persevered and stayed true to the Metal cause. I dare anyone to tell this Metal legend that “the entrance is that way, sir.” Like him or not, Philip H. Anselmo is and always will be a powerful Metal statesman and I personally could not see it any other way. Maybe my album title interpretation may differ from others; that’s what makes art such a dynamic gift upon our civilizations, I gather.

________________________________

I am beyond excited, that over the years Philip H. Anselmo has continued onward with one project after another; exemplifying that stagnation is for pussies in the first place. While many Metal fans speak of Ozzy Osbourne, Rob (The Metal God) Halford, Lemmy Kilmister and Alice Cooper (for examples) as our living Metal leaders, I cannot overlook the Metal historic importance of Philip H. Anselmo and his profound contributions to our Metal genres. This Metal legend has obviously touched all of our beloved Metal genres… and he has succeeded magnificently. In my Metal opinion, Philip H. Anselmo has.

I’ll be purchasing Walk Through Exits Only on July 16th, 2013. I will be happier than a pig in the most filthy of shit too. The realization that Philip H. Anselmo gives a damn about keeping Metal true and legitimately badass will overcome me once again, as I let his new album scald my senses and knock me flat on my Metal lovin’ ass. Metal be thy name.

* Walk Through Exits will be released on Philip H. Anselmo’s very own Housecore Records.

METAL NEWS: WHITE WIDOWS – Sacrament Music To Release Debut From New Brooklyn Metal Collective

Posted in hardcore, hardcore metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on January 29, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

White Widows - large logo - B&W

Brooklyn-based Sacrament Music, founded at the beginning of 2013 by the owners of Saint Vitus Bar/Club, has already announced its second release for the year. Following the label’s recent virgin signing announcement for the debut from local cohorts Sannhet, Sacrament now confirms the pending debut from newly formed Metallic Hardcore outfit WHITE WIDOWS.

Formed by drummer Kenny Appell (Goes Cube, Cleanteeth), bassist Brian Ponto, guitarists Nick Emde (The Destro) and Travis Bacon (Grudges), and vocalist David Castillo (Primitive Weapons, Saint Vitus Bar, Sacrament Music), WHITE WIDOWS merges NYC-style Metallic Hardcore and Southern Sludge Metal elements and production into mid-paced metallic grooves, slow-motion breakdowns and high-paced pit-swinging melees diversifying the flow over the self-titled debut’s twenty-four minute lifespan. The record was recorded with Dean Baltulonis at the Wild Arctic in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All, Most Precious Blood, Goes Cube) and will see a digital release/exclusive shirt package via Sacrament Music on March 1st.

Among other regional shows to be confirmed continually, WHITE WIDOWS will storm Acheron in Brooklyn with Pittsburgh crust warriors Heartless in March and have two shows with local pirates Mutilation Rites and Seattle deathbeaters Black Breath in Brooklyn and Philly in April.

INFALLING “Path Of Desolation” EP – A Full-Blown Hardcore Metal Assault You Should Know About!

Posted in hardcore, hardcore metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on January 3, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Infalling - Path Of Desolation - promo cover pic!

INFALLING – From Cleveland, Ohio, cometh INFALLING. This (multi-genre influenced) trio of Metal musicians are worth every second of your time; especially if you’re into Metal that will assault your ears while  you beg for more! Their EP, Path Of Desolation, was released back in September of 2012 and carries a ton of shelf life; INFALLING have created a potent and quality crop of 5 songs. This is an EP I won’t be putting away anytime soon!

INFALLING are three Metal musicians that are gonna go places, I feel and hear it. Their Hardcore meets Metal assault is sandwiched between album instrumental opener Genesis and album instrumental closer Revelations. Both the intro and exit on Path Of Desolation truly defines this band’s Progressive and Classic Rock influences quite soundly.

As for the Hardcore Metal that’s smack-dab-in-the-middle of this astoundingly produced EP: whoop-ass to the maximum potential! Tony Balante is as fierce as a caged rattlesnake on vocals! Tony comes across as very comfortable in his surroundings; there’s nothing that sounds forced or ill contrived, a very confident vocalist is he.

What a Metal band across the Metal board. Seriously. When INFALLING came across my Metal path over this New Years holiday, I was completely impressed; from their totality of destructive Hardcore style of Metal sound to their top-tier quality of songs I inhaled from Path Of Desolation. Get into INFALLING now, before they are selling out the clubs consistently as a headliner. Metal be thy name.

Path of Desolation EP is currently up now for free Download & Streaming! Check it out on the INFALLING Band Profile on their facebook here:Infalling - Also, this EP hardcopy is now available!

INFALLING – Band Bio:

INFALLING are three musicians coming from a wide array of musical backgrounds, ranging from Hardcore, Jazz, Prog-Rock to Rap and of course Metal. INFALLING blends together to form a bond between different types of genres. Tony Balante (A FEW ASKEW, STRESSLORD) applies dynamic vocals, Justin Endres (ODIOUS SANCTION, PALE CREATION, STRESSLORD, LAW OF DESTRUCTION) implements brutal riffing, Eric Frabotta (INHUMATION, STRESSLORD) produces explosive percussion.
