Arising Fear - Beyond Betrayal - promo band - album banner - 2014 - #402

Intensive, up to date and original … pure Modern Thrash Metal freshness for spring!

ARISING FEAR was founded back in 2008 in Augsburg, Bavaria, and affect their listeners with catchy hooks, complex song structures and hard headbanger riffs – all those musical elements meet in the music of ARISING FEAR and give their individual wall of sound a very interesting and powerful attitude.

Followed by an immense number of live shows in Germany, Poland and Italy, with well-known Bands like Emil Bulls, Farewell To Arms or Tenside the band released their self-titled debut EP in September 2009 which received excellent press consistently.

Check out the album trailer below for Beyond Betrayal:

In ARISING FEAR, Alex Rauh (vocals/guitar) , Kevin Pöllmann (guitar/vocals), Tobi Möhring (drums) and Tom Franz (bass) prescribe themselves to the passion for creating their own music which can be considered as a mix of classical Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal and elements of the Metalcore genre.

Currently, the four playful guys of ARISING FEAR are in the studio and work diligently on their debut album “BEYOND BETRAYAL” which will be released on March 29, 2014.

WE CAME AS ROMANS “Fade Away” – #2 In A Series Of Celebrating Peace And Hope On Metal Odyssey

Posted in Metal, metal music, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music news, rock music videos with tags , , , , on September 11, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

We Came As Romans - Tracing Back Roots - promo cover pic

Within this week marking the anniversary of the horrific events that occurred in the U.S.A. on September 11th, 2001, I will be featuring songs of hope, love, inspiration, positive vibes and goodwill towards man. These songs will be pulled from the Hard Rock and Metal genres too. Hopefully, an attack like that will never happen again upon any country.

There currently is way too much conflict and suffering happening in the world today; our life on Earth is too short for such carnage and despair. War is not the answer and I cherish life, family, music and of course… Metal Buddies. Metal be thy name.

Below is the official music video for Fade Away, from Detroit, Michigan’s very own We Came As Romans. A Metalcore band that features both a melodic and Hardcore sound, We Came As Romans have recently crashed the charts with their Billboard top-ten studio album: Tracing Back Roots. The inspiring lyrics to Fade Away are nothing short of personal perseverance and hope filled. Below, listen to and watch Fade Away by We Came As Romans:

HER DYING REGRET – Announce New EP “Legacy”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music lyrics with tags , , , , on July 28, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Her Dying Regret - Band Promo Pic - 2013 - #1

‘Heartfelt, passionate and heavy’ is how Metalcore six-piece, Her Dying Regret describe their new EP ‘Legacy’ which will be self-released this September 19th.

Following up from their debut EP ‘The Siren’ [2012] which was a dramatic introduction to the Reading based band, ‘Legacy’, recorded at Avenue Studios, Camberley with producer Daniel Kerr shows a new side to the band and the direction they want to go in musically following the release of the first EP. “We want that to be a distant memory and for ‘Legacy’ to be what we’re remembered for”, says guitarist Craig Mayor.

“On ‘Legacy’ the lyrical content and vocal style is very different as we have two vocalists providing a new dynamic that allows us to be more creative and versatile, we’ve also taken some elements out of different sub genres of Metal to fuse it with our own sound to create something different.”

The hourglass inspired artwork designed by Abyss Art’s Vincent Bolar is an important addition to the feel of ‘Legacy’ furthers Craig. “There has a lot of emphasis on time and a few songs on our EP have the message of making the most of the time you have, the hourglass represents lifespan, the EP almost has a seize the day kind of theme to it.”

Immortal will be the band’s debut for Razor & Tie Records, having their prior albums released via Facedown Records.

I bought this Fearless single and I’ll have to admit, it’s one heavy song. A very memorable chorus, along with some punishing drums and face-melting hardcore vocals, combines to make Fearless a dominating sonic experience. Metal be thy name.

HATE SQUAD: Sixth Album Set For North American Release On Massacre Records

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, metal music, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , , on January 2, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Having won over audiences across Europe via major Metal/Hardcore tours and massive festival appearances since their 1993 inception, German Metalcore heavyweights HATE SQUAD will drop their newest full-length, Katharsis, onto North American audiences via Massacre Records this January 17th.

The Hannover-based quartet will kick off the new year with their sixth LP to date, surging with nearly an hour of the band’s pummeling blend of death metal and hardcore. Recorded and mixed by Ralf Müller at Rape of Harmonies Studios, produced by Müller and HATE SQUAD, and mastered by Olman Viper at Hertzwerk (Hamburg), the album clearly makes the listener aware that they are a force to be reckoned with in the new year, and once again prove why HATE SQUAD remain one of Germany’s leading Metalcore exports.

Check out the title track to the album and more at this location.

Katharsis Track Listing:

Deep Scars

Katharsis

Your Rotten Life

The One

Hatebomb

A.P.A.B.

IMORA – ‘If The Shoe Fits’ – Song From ‘Happily Neverafter’ EP: A Scorching & Melodic Listen

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metalcore, Music, post hardcore, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on January 1, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

IMORA – Check out below the new single If The Shoe Fits from IMORA, a Metalcore / Post Hardcore band from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. This song is from the forthcoming EP from IMORA: Happily Neverafter via Ship Out Recordings.

The balance of both vocals that rage and croon are done with impressiveness on this song. Combining the heavy and melodic comes across very credible with IMORA on If The Shoe Fits. IMORA already has shared the stage with: ChiodosEvergreen Terrace, Stick To Your Guns and Asking Alexandria, to name a few. This band sounds like a toughened and talented unit ready for the next big step and might very well have to be reckoned with in 2012 and beyond.

If you dig If The Shoe Fits after listening to it a few times, then my Metal advice is buy this new EP from IMORA – Happily Neverafter. This EP will be available on iTunes starting January 10th, 2012.

IMORA:

Jeff Leuschen – vocals

Dave Daniel – drums/vocals

Ryan Brosius – guitar

Mac – bass

Topher – keys/samples

UNEARTH – Darkness In The Light: Album Art and Track Listing Revealed! New Song Stream Available!

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, metal music, metal odyssey, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

UNEARTH – Pit-churning, Melodic Metal pioneers, UNEARTH, are currently readying to unveil Darkness In The Light, their fifth full-length in a discography that’s placed the band among the most prolific and plainly ravaging modern metal acts to come out of the U.S. Set for North American release on July 5 via Metal Blade Records, the 11-track long player — their most conceptually personal offering to date — was recorded at Zing Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with producer (and Killswitch Engage guitarist) Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium, et al). Sitting in on drums during the recording was Justin Foley of Killswitch Engage/Blood Has Been Shed.

Commented UNEARTH vocalist Trevor Phipps of the band’s latest output: “Darkness In The Light is without a doubt some of the heaviest, most dynamic and memorable tunes we’ve ever written. The disc is littered with the shred ‘n’ stomp-filled songs our fans would expect from us, as well as some added vocal hooks, guitar melodies, guitar solos and some different paths taken in style and structure. We knew we had to continue to separate ourselves from the pack and to cement our place in the Heavy Metal world as one of the leaders and not as one of the many followers that seem to hop on the trend wagon and give up so easily when the going gets hard. We are here to stay and collectively we couldn’t be any more fired up to play these songs around the world for our fans new and old.”

Darkness In The Light Track Listing:

01. Watch It Burn

02. Ruination Of The Lost

03. Shadows In The Light

04. Eyes Of Black

05. Last Wish

06. Arise The War Cry

07. Equinox

08. Coming Of The Dark

09. The Fallen

10. Overcome

11. Disillusion

UNEARTH:

Trevor Phipps – Vocals

Buz McGrath – Guitar

Ken Susi – Guitar

John “Slo” Maggard – Bass

Justin Foley – Studio Drummer

The first single, the instantly pummeling “Eyes Of Black,” is currently streaming on the band’s official album landing page, which includes updated tour info, pre-order options and more. Said Phipps of the track: “We chose ‘Eyes Of Black’ to be the first song heard out of the gate as we feel it represents the ‘UNEARTH sound’ and style perfectly and it’s simply a hard-hitting, catchy-as-hell song. The lyrics are also in line with many of the albums darker lyrical themes. I’m not speaking for all of the band, but this is my personal favorite on the album and I can’t wait to get out there and play it live!” To check out the tune, point your browser to THIS LOCATION.

Several pre-order deals for Darkness In The Light are available. Packages include:

CD: $9.99

CHIMAIRA “Wild Thing” Cover Song – A Horns Up To Charlie Sheen’s “Major League” Movie And Available Now at iTunes!

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 7, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

(New York, NY) – CHIMAIRA joined in the fun of celebrating Charlie Sheen last week by covering the song “Wild Thing” in the studio, a tribute to Charlie Sheen’s 1989 hit comedy movie “Major League”. “We had some fun at the studio”, says Chimaira’s front man Mark Hunter.

Chimaira is currently in the studio finishing up their upcoming record to be released later this year. Recently signing a new record deal with eOne Music for North America, South America and Japan, Mark Hunter offers: “We are excited to start the new decade with a team that believes in our music, has our back and thinks outside the box. eOne are one of the very few labels out there who still give a damn about the genre and Chimaira are proud to be a part of that. Expect great things in 2011″.

Chimaira released their album “The Infection” back in 2009 to serious critical acclaims with hit singles “Secrets of the Dead” and “Destroy and Dominate”, which claimed the #30 spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Their most recent effort was a three disc live DVD, which also features a documentary about the band called “Coming Alive”.

* Over the past 10 years, Chimaira has sold close to 500,000 albums.

A “Wild Thing” song history, (see below), brought to you by Metal Odyssey’s Stone:

* “Wild Thing” was written by songwriter Chip Taylor, (real name: James Wesley Voight), who was born in New York City. This iconic Rock ‘n’ Roll song was originally recorded by The Wild Ones back in 1965. The English Rock Band – The Troggs covered “Wild Thing” back in 1966 and reached #1 in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100 in July of 1966.

Stone’s “Wild Thing” Cover Song Review:

Okay, I bought this cover song of “Wild Thing” from iTunes today. It realistically served me right. I never thought I would be saying this about Chimaira… they actually made a (gulp) “fun” song. This cover version has it’s Metal grooves happening with plenty of crunch. Yes, Mark Hunter still sounds quite pissed off vocally, so don’t worry all of you Chimaira die-hards out there! “Wild Thing” clocks in at 2:30 long, so it’s no epic, it’s just a good Metal kick-in-the-ass to kick start my day. Or is that kick start my night? A Must Metal buy for only $1.29!

CHIMAIRA:

Mark Hunter - vocals

Matt DeVries – guitar

Rob Arnold - guitar

Andols Herrick – drums

Chris Spicuzza – keyboards, samples & backing vocals

CALIFORNIA METALFEST V – AS I LAY DYING Headlines On Saturday, March 19th, 2011! Bands Listed!

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal favorites, metal music, metal odyssey, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

CALIFORNIA METALFEST V – This looks like an extremely cool Metalfest to me! Tim Lambesis (vocalist & founding member) of As I Lay Dying is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist that I applaud tremendously, in this vast world of Metal. I consider Tim to be a prodigious Metal talent. The Powerless Rise (Metal Blade) is the most recent album from As I Lay Dying and one that I listen to consistently. As I Lay Dying tears it apart, per usual, on this strong album of Metal.

It’s the Extreme side of As I Lay Dying that made me gravitate to them in the first place, mixing multiple styles of Metal together to form their own standout sound. Metalcore, Metal and Extreme… we can play the genre game all day long here, just know that As I Lay Dying is one substantial Metal band out there today. Man, I wish this California Metalfest V was just down the street from me! Two words for any Metalhead that is going to this show… you lucky.

I get the biggest Metal kick out of Tim’s side project world-known as Austrian Death Machine. The Thrashin’ Death grooves that Tim Lambesis has created with Austrian Death Machine are infectious to my Metal lovin’ ears. Plus, the parody of Arnold Schwarzenegger through the character (voice-over) of “Ahhhnold” is just (gulp) fun Metal stuff. I recommend any rabid Metal fan out there to get their ears into Austrian Death Machine (if you already haven’t).

The above CALIFORNIA METALFEST V poster pretty much says it all when it comes to any general Metal info!
