Youth Forgotten - promo cover pic - 2014 - #19

Revolver Magazine is streaming the entire debut full-length from Cleveland quintet YOUTH FORGOTTENGhost Of A Fallen Empire, as the band releases the album into the public today.

Unifying former members of Dead Even, Salt The Wound, Above The Fire, Chimaira and Integrity, YOUTH FORGOTTEN forges straightforward, energetic, metal/punk-fueled hardcore. A high-octane release with the bustling angst, recalling the energy of the 1990s punk/hardcore movements, Ghost Of A Fallen Empire is a forty-minute, action-packed release packed with ten anthems aimed at lethargic, fad-driven acts that pollute the current scene. Recorded with Rob Arnold of Chimaira, marking his debut as a producer, Ghost Of A Fallen Empire is now officially available digitally, while the band finalizes plans for the upcoming physical pressing of the album.

Weed out the weak and resurrect the Ghost Of A Fallen Empire at Revolver RIGHT HERE.

With tour plans for the coming months currently being devised, YOUTH FORGOTTEN’s hometown record release party for the album will go down tomorrow evening, the act joined by nine bands considered true allies including Fuck You Pay Me, Teddy Boys, Cholera, Aricebo, Cop Problem and more. Every paid head at the door will instantly receive a handmade CD version of Ghost Of a Fallen Empire crafted exclusively for this event.

YOUTH FORGOTTEN-Ghost Of A Fallen Empire Record Release Show:

2/01/2014 The Foundry Concert Club – Lakewood, OH [info]

Youth Forgotten - promo band pic - 2014 - #66089

Critical Praise:

“Brutal riffs, hardcore punk intensity, anthemic vocals, an ear for meaningful technicality, all combined with a live show that more than punctuates the sentiment- Youth Forgotten should prove a force to reckoned with in 2014.” – Blow The Scene

“Contender for album of the year. If rating is something I would do I would give this one 10 sticks of dynamite.” – Hard Times

“If their past success in the metal scene is any indication of things to come for this band, then audiences should take notice of this release. This is only a warm-up for Youth Forgotten and I can’t wait to see what’s next.” - Broken Neck Radio

GRAVE ROBBER – Confirmed For Warriors Of Metal Fest VII Pre-Fest Showcase

Grave Robber - promo live photo - 2013 - #6767

January 23, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to announce that Fort Wayne, Indiana’s premier Horror Punk band GRAVE ROBBER has gladly accepted the unenviable challenge of being the “show closer” and final performer for the Pre-Fest Showcase of the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII, which will take place at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill on Thursday, June 26 in Columbus, Ohio.

Vocalist Wretched states:  “We are honored and excited to have been invited by Datis to play the Warriors Of Metal Pre-fest and our second time on the O’Shecky’s stage. As a theatrical horror punk band, we have always had utmost respect for all things metal and have always included touches of metal in our artistic vision of horror. In fact, similar to The Misfits, we have found that quite a large percentage of our fanbase are straight up metalheads who hate punk, but somehow find common ground with Grave Robber and love what we do. We are greatly looking forward to playing way too loud, way too fast, way too aggressive and making some friends and comrades in aggressive musical endeavors. Thank you again, Datis from the bottom of our reanimated, undead hearts. Be afraid, be very afraid!”

Believe the hype with the official music video for GRAVE ROBBER’s “Altered States,” now playing below:

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

MISFITS – That’s right Fiends, the ‘fits will debut two all-new studio recordings for the first time anywhere on a special limited edition 12-inch maxi-single this Halloween!

90’s era Misfits ‘fiend’ fav “Descending Angel” has been re-recorded with a brand new 2013 treatment by the “Devil’s Rain” lineup (Jerry, Dez and Chupacabra). The new single features wicked cover art by Jeff Zornow (Fright Rags, IDW’s Godzilla comics & more). Here’s a first glimpse of the old-school inspired, one-color sleeve art, compliments of Misfits Records. (Shown above).

More news will follow, including details on the flip side track, (hint for die-hard fiends…you’ve only heard the ‘fits perform this track live, but a studio version will soon debut). Also keep your evil eyes peeled for advance word on pre-ordering, highly limited exclusive variant vinyl colorways, and how to get your copy before it even arrives in stores!

This and lots more, coming VERY soon from Misfits Records. Stay tuned…

Los Angeles Punk Rock Band Is A Hit With MTV And KROQ

_______________________________________

Los Angeles, CA – Equipped with a recipe of hard-hitting beats, thought-provoking lyrics and chart-worthy hooks is the Los Angeles punk rock band, Harmful if Swallowed. The band is releasing their six-song EP Allergy containing the hypnotic singles, “Sabrina (Little Angel)” and “Allergy,” available now on iTunes. Since the release of their acclaimed debut Serverthe band has garnered a faithful following with tracks appearing on multiple MTV shows and are frequently spun on the world-famous Los Angeles rock station KROQ. Harmful If Swallowed is preparing to raise their bar even higher with their best work to date, Allergy.

Fronted by vocalist/guitarist Greg Martin, the band’s lineup is made up of Josh Loren (drums), Carlos Nieto III (bass, backing vocals) and Brian Martinez (rhythm guitar). The latest EP, produced at the hands of GRAMMY award-winner, Matt Hyde (Slayer, Porno for Pyros, No Doubt), delivers an impressive range of subject matter, rhythm and sound. Allergy is a smooth evolution from previous records; charged with a fiery energy, stellar vocal chops and real-life situation lyrics.

“Sabrina (Little Angel)” hits hard at the opening with witty lyrics, propulsive drum kicks and enticing electric guitars all supported by strong vocals and ear-pleasing harmonies on the hook. The title track “Allergy”, written about an ex-girlfriend, moves listeners in a similar fashion with canny metaphors and raw emotion. The song compares an ex-girlfriend who makes you so sick whenever she reappears, like a bad allergy.

Songs like “Hateful” and “Recession” are a little more provocative but still feature the Harmful If Swallowed mainstay – head-banging instrumentation. While the track “Lindsay” has it all – catchy hooks, witty lyrics and is penned about the queen of trouble, Lindsay Lohan. Each song is a seamless introduction to the next, while keeping listeners intrigued and entertained. Allergy was recorded in Hollywood, CA at Sunset Lodge with the fine-tuned and crystal clear sound achieved with the help of engineer, Chris Rakestraw  (Bad Religion).

Harmful If Swallowed quickly realized their instant chemistry and it ignited a supernatural musical collaboration. Boasting their suggestive band name, Harmful if Swallowed released their debut album Serverwhichwas handpicked for a selection of MTV shows and caught the attention of radio DJ Kat Corbett (KROQ) who is an avid fan and supporter. Taking full advantage of their increased exposure and growing fan base, the band embarked on a slew of performances including co-headlining concerts with some of the industry’s biggest names such as KoRn, Green Day, Weezer, FEAR, Bad Religion and numerous others.

(Los Angeles) It is with sad and heavy hearts that the members of the seminal Punk Rock band, X, pay tribute to their friend and mentor, Ray Manzarek.

Ray Manzarek is an integral part of X’s history. The band’s debut album, Los Angeles was released on April 26, 1980 and produced by Ray. The album includes a cover of the 1967 Doors song “Soul Kitchen” and was the bands most successful release. It ranked # 16 for the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics Poll. Subsequently in 1989, it was ranked number 24 on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 best albums of the 80s and Pitchfork ranked it 91st on their top 100 albums of the 1980s. The title track is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll  and again in 2003, the album was ranked number 286 on the Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Ray went on to produce the next three studio albums for the band, Wild Gift in 1981 (also on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 greatest albums of all time at #334), Under the Big Black Sun in 1982 and 1983’s More Fun in the New World.

In late 2010, X celebrated the 30th Anniversary of Los Angeles by playing the entire album, start to finish.  Ray joined the band during their two shows in San Francisco, just after Christmas. In August of 2012, Ray again joined the band for the entire show at the famed Roxy Theatre during the Sunset Strip Music Festival, playing Los Angeles in its entirety. In 2013, Rhino released The Doors/X Side by Side: Soul Kitchen, a split white vinyl 7″.

Ray Manzarek

Ray led by example, from The Doors to carmine burana and beyond. He is and will always be a spirit being, adept at expanding perception. And once those doors of perception are opened, they never close. He taught me that we are the keys, that we can unlock all doors, everywhere, to create magic, to transform ourselves and power the world, through joy and love and imagination and art and, above all through music. – Exene

Ray was a mentor to X in our early days and a something of a father figure to Exene & me. He was brilliant & soulful. If Bob Dylan brought poetry & folk to popular music; Ray & the Doors brought the blues & poetry to rock music. The Doors are rock royalty. It has been a privilege & honor to call Ray a friend and share the stage w/ him. – John Doe

Ray always believed in us.  We’ll miss him.  My heart goes out to Dorothy and Pablo. – Billy Zoom

I am so sorry to hear about Ray’s passing. Not only was he an integral part of X’s history, he was a smart, funny, and kind friend. I will miss him. – DJ Bonebrake

Bad Motherf*cker Video Reaches Over 13 Million Views On YouTube!

Russian Band’s Sequel To Last Year’s Viral Video!

___________________________________

Los Angeles, CA – Following the success of their last video which became a YouTube success, reaching over two million views and gaining them a recording contract and opening slots for Linkin Park and Guns N’ Roses, Russian Indie Punk/Rock band Biting Elbows continues to push the envelope. The band has released (March 2013) their thrilling new single and video “Bad Motherf*cker.” The video carries just as much, if not more fire power and sting as the name of the song. The band’s efforts have been paying off as their fan base has significantly increased and begged for more. Known to pack a hard punch with their videos and music, Biting Elbows have been making a name for themselves in Europe and beyond.

Heart-racing and non-stop action, the video for Bad Motherf*cker is a sequel to last year’s “Stampede,” also known as Insane Office Escape. The prequel video is a short movie in the point of view of a man who steals a magic vial and is chased through an office and kidnapped. Directed by Naishuller and shot by Sergey Valyaev, the “Bad Motherf*cker” video is an intensified grimy and gritty continuation of Stampede and is portrayed like a real life video game, amid tons of blood and vivid shoot-outs. The sequel follows the main character as he escapes the building, killing anyone in his way as he evades his kidnappers.

Full of intriguing special effects and jaw-dropping stunts, the video will have fans on the edge of their seats. Shot over nine full days, the video had a team of five stuntmen, including a parkour practitioner, and three camera specialists. The song itself lyrically speaks to, and at the same time mocks the idea of how rock stars keep up a bad boy persona to keep fans interested. The video is currently available to watch on Biting Elbow’s YouTube channel.

Fronted by vocalist and guitarist Ilya Naishuller, the four-piece indie band got its start in 2007 with lead guitarist Garik Buldenkov, bassist Ilya Kondratiev and virtuoso drummer Alexei Zamaraev. The four men take their sound to new heights by experimenting with electric sounds, mashing them together with rock ‘n’ roll and adding post-punk elements to create head-nodding tracks. The Russian musicians became a hit with the locals during the first years of their career and released their first EP together called The Dope Fiend Massacre in 2011.

___________________________________

Along with the EP came the viral music videos for the EP’s lead single Stampede. Multitalented Naishuller is a director by day and shoots all of the band’s music videos including the Youtube sensation Stampede. With such an impressive collection of professionally made music videos and an ever-growing fan base, Biting Elbows signed with Russia’s Misteria Records. Since then, they have opened for numerous notable artists such as Linkin Park, Guns N’ Roses, The Cure, Placebo, and more. In addition, several of their songs have had placements in TV and major Russian movies, as well as having a few of their videos in rotation on Russian TV, including MTV.

Equipped with a devoted following and a master plan for world domination, Biting Elbows are sure to continue their growth both internationally and in the US. They are surely not a band to miss out on. Follow their journey at www.facebook.com/bitingelbows or www.BitingElbows.com.
