SEVENDUST – One new album I was anticipating highly for this past year was SEVENDUST Kill The Flaw. To sum up in four words how I feel about Kill The Flaw: I am very happy. This cool album was released back on October 2nd, via 7 Bros. Kill The Flaw is the tenth studio album (of original songs) from SEVENDUST.

Kill The Flaw has received a bounty of grand reviews across the blogosphere; just google about for yourself to see! I hear and sense the perseverance and skill laden chemistry of this legendary band, throughout this entire album. Tonight, I am psyched to feature this album’s opening track, Thank You, as Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day! Whoa! Listen to Thank You below and I hope you like this song as much as I do. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

FROM ASHES TO NEW “DOWNFALL” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

From Ashes To New - Downfall - promo EP cover pic - 2015 - #0339966MOSN

4 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

FROM ASHES TO NEW are a Rap/Alternative Metal band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Their new EP Downfall has grabbed my attention in a positive way, as you’ll read below. The band’s debut studio album, Day One, is slated for a February 2016 release.

Adding to the excitement that is stirring within the From Ashes To New camp is their forthcoming supporting role on the Christmas Vacation Tour; a tour which boasts Falling In ReverseAtreyu and Assuming We Survive. From Ashes To New just concluded a supporting role on the Five Finger Death Punch Tour; a tour that also featured Papa Roach and In This Moment. ‘Nuff said and whoa.

I once lived in Pennsylvania for nearly seven years, right on the Allentown city line. During my time living there, I can easily state that Pennsylvania is a hot-bed for music. From the annual Berks Jazz Fest in Reading to Musikfest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, with many bustling music clubs in-between, music is an essential part of social gathering in The Keystone State.

With the likes of Hall & Oates, Halestorm, Cinderella, Sinister Realm, Motionless In White, Candlelight Red and Poison originating from Pennsylvania, it doesn’t surprise me at all that such a talented band as From Ashes To New call this great state home as well.

___________________________

From Ashes To New blend their styles of Rap and Alternative Metal together in a seamless fashion, with all four songs on their new EP: Downfall. These songs are filled with more hooks than a pro fisherman’s tackle box and flow with each other like a fresh mountain stream. Seriously, From Ashes To New have taken their own musical canvas and painted their own art upon it; there is very much originality here to be heard and embraced. Where some bands of this ilk can get downright annoying, From Ashes To New have sucked me into their melodious vacuum.

As the Rap Metal goes, I find it to be as cool of a listen as when Anthrax had done it many Metal moons ago. These are well written (both lyrically and musically) and thought-out songs on Downfall; while they’re also minus any lullaby moments too. The numerous spurts of heaviness throughout this EP makes it all the more enjoyable for me; plus I truly dig the vocals and chorus that From Ashes To New perform so very well. It appears that Lancaster, PA has exported a talent that I could not resist boasting about and I wish nothing short of the very best for From Ashes To New. Metal be thy name. – Stone.

May 27, 2015, SAN FRANCISCO – Faith No More’s Sol Invictus, the Bay Area band’s first new album in eighteen years, has landed atop international charts with the ten-track release at #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, #6 in the UK and #6 in the United States (#14 on Billboard’s Top 200).

“What this tells me,” said Faith No More founder and bass player Bill Gould, “is that there is a need out there; people want to hear things that exist outside the mold. It makes me feel grateful and it gives me hope.”

“We are honored to be a part of the FNM team and very proud of the success of Sol Invictus,” added Greg Werckman, co-owner of Ipecac Recordings. “Of course, none of this would have happened without the band delivering such a fantastic record and them having faith in us to handle it properly.” The album was released as a joint partnership between the Faith No More’s own Reclamation Recordings and Ipecac.

In the United States the album also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Music and Independent Album charts as well as #2 on both the Rock and Alternative Album charts.

Faith No More returns to North America this summer, the band launches their European tour on Friday.

HELLGATE – Hard Rock / Metal Trio Release Debut S/T EP

Posted in metal music, Music, music news, music reviews, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Helgate - promo cover pic - ep - 2014

Stone Notes: This is HELLGATE. They have earned a ton of support out in the Northwest and in their home base of Montana; and are now looking to brand themselves nationwide. HELLGATE’s debut S/T EP is available for free or name your price on their Bandcamp page (see below).

HELLGATE’s talent and credibility do all the talking on this bragworthy EP, with an impressive mix of many Heavy Rock genres that flows into one original sound. Joel Floyd West has vocals that you’ll remember, cause he’s not trying to sound like someone else. This is a standout underground band and debut EP that I’m giving you all a Metal heads-up on. I’m very pleased, to have this opportunity to feature HELLGATE on Metal Odyssey for the first time. Don’t miss out on HELLGATE. Metal be thy name.

HELLGATE HAPPENINGS:

HELLGATE – Since the bands’ formation in March of 2014, HELLGATE has accomplished a great deal, including an appearance on NBC-TV as well as write ups in a number of local and regional papers including The Lively Times and The Independent.

HELLGATE has already received some national radio airplay and has created a strong web presence in such a very short time as well.

Now, with the release of their Self-Titled Debut EP, the band is ready to go national. The KillHate Tour kicks off July 3rd, and will take the band through MT, WA, OR, CA, and NV. Proceeds from this tour will be donated to NPAP against police brutality.

Haunting grooves, aggressive hooks, and seductive textures describe the organic yet formulaic delivery that HELLGATE has to offer on this 6 song, 24 minute release.
