Twitching Tongues - World War Live - promo cover pic - 2014

TWITCHING TONGUES and Closed Casket Activities are proud to announce the World War LIVE limited “live” LP/CD.

Recorded live in the Van Nuys stadium called THE PIT in front of twenty screaming fans, this is (not) a true testament to the event that occurs when this band hits the stage. The band was tired of hearing “they’re better live,” so here it is. With a setlist comprised mostly of songs from their latest LP, In Love There Is No Law, as well as previous material, the record almost doubles as a best-of the band’s current stage. The album cover was made by the legendary Sean Taggart (Carnivore, Crumbsuckers, Agnostic Front) and hardcopy buyers will regret their purchases slightly less with the addition of bonus material.

Closed Casket will release World War LIVE on CD, LP and digital download on August 12th; preorders will be available shortly. A video trailer for the album is playing below:

World War LIVE - Track Listing:

1. Eyes Adjust

2. Burn Forever

3. Preacher Man

4. Feed Your Disease

5. Sleep

6. Good Luck…

7. In Love There Is No Law

8. World War V

9. Sorry I’m Not

Gust - promo band pic - 2014 - B&W - #1991

Southern Lord reveals the latest addition to their raging Summer schedule; enter progressive hardcore band GUST, hailing from Trollhättan, Sweden.

The fierce four piece skillfully combines pounding d-beat rhythms with a classic hardcore punk directness, and bring forth a maelstrom of metallic riffs, amalgamating into a brutal and arresting sonic assault fans of Cursed and Rise And Fall will swarm to. With one demo, one LP and four European tours already under their belt, and with a fifth tour running from June 24th through July 17th, GUST will release their brand new, self-titled album through Southern Lord Recordings this August. This second LP was self recorded at Fvck Life Studios, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Warcry, From Ashes Rise, Deathreat, Audiosiege Engineering), who supplies guest vocals on the track “Humility In Disguise.”

GUST’s incoming ten-track LP explodes with lyrical angst and musical fury from the get-go, bombarding the listener with catchy riffs and spot-on political statements. From this second LP, it is clear that GUST is a force with which to be reckoned.

Further info and vinyl preorders can be located HERE.

RUN WITH THE HUNTED – New Full-Length From Arizona Punk/Hardcore Unit Streaming In Its Entirety; Preorders Available

Posted in hardcore, hardcore bands, music news, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Run With The Hunted - promo live band pic - 2014 - #9977

With the official detonation of their forthcoming new full-length, The Sieve And The Sand, now less than a week away, Arizona punk/hardcore unit, RUN WITH THE HUNTED, offers rambunctious ears a chance to hear the record in its entirety!

A name derived from classic dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Sieve And The Sand serves as the follow-up to the band’s 2011 self-titled full-length, which Punknews fittingly commended for its “heavy, lurching mosh parts.” Engineered and mixed by Alex Estrada (Touche Amore, Nails, Joyce Manor) and mastered by New Alliance East (Converge, Dropdead, Doomriders), RUN WITH THE HUNTED defies genre norms, sporting a maturity seldom realized in hardcore, seamlessly weaving in and out of multiple genres while maintaining the constant sense of urgency and desperation for which they are known. The result is a seven-track monolithic offering fit for The Secret, Champion and Burning Love enthusiasts, encompassing a lifetime of pain, struggle and a desperate search for meaning and purpose in an otherwise careless world.

Metal Insider notes, “The band’s fourth album… should make fans of Every Time I Die or Converge feel right at home with their wild energy bound together by a focus on tight playing, knowing exactly when to lash out and when to remain poised” while American Aftermath boasts in a 9/10 review, “RUN WITH THE HUNTED have written their best record yet, plain and simple. The Sieve And The Sand is an intelligent, yet chaotic excursion lined with existential musings. Basically, do not sleep on this band.”

____________________________

Sink into The Sieve And The Sand, now streaming in its entirety below:

The Sieve And The Sand will be released via Panic Records on June 3rd, 2014. For North American preorders, point your browser HERE. For European preorder, scroll HERE.

FLANAGAN and several other players recently started laying down the basic tracks for the impending yet-to-be-named album, which will close the extensive twelve-year gap since the band’s initial works were released, and will undoubtedly be one of the premiere hardcore/punk releases of the year.

Issued FLANAGAN on signing with Southern Lord and the ongoing recording process of the new material: “I think that this is some of the hardest stuff I have written in a long time. God knows there has been a lot of inspiration over the last few years.” Southern Lord owner Greg Anderson this week stated on the upcoming release: “The demos we have heard thus far are incredible! We’re really looking forward to hearing this when it’s completed.”

FLANAGAN is a black belt under Renzo Gracie and teaches at the Renzo Gracie academy in NYC, as well as having a book and several other projects in the works.

Italian Grind/Hatecore Gods CRIPPLE BASTARDS Confirmed For Obscene Extreme

Posted in grindcore, hardcore, hardcore bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Cripple Bastards - promo live band pic - band logo - 2014 - #030550

You could say this is a ‘grindcore hat-trick’ as it is the third OEF appearance in 2014 for Italian hate mob Cripple Bastards after headlining the insane Obscene Extreme Asia in Tokyo and Obscene Extreme Australia in Melbourne earlier this year. But if you really want to see the Bastards play at home, then Obscene Extreme Trutnov is the grounds for the final massacre. They have been blasting the shit on stage since the festival’s birth back in 1999 and raised the most infernal stage diving pits for countless times through the years that followed.

26 years after their conception Cripple Bastards still hold the banner high as Italy’s most hostile and aggressive grind/hardcore unit around. With one foot firmly in the past and all the vicious savagery of manic fast 80′s hardcore extremity, Cripple Bastards are also charging forwards. With bloodshot eyes and a rabid ‘get out and bite them’ attitude, this band are ready to introduce their brand new 2014 full length ‘Nero In Metastasi’ on Relapse Records and they will consolidate their ongoing mission of bringing nihilistic, fuck-you-all, grinding hatred to every corner of an underserving mankind.

Cripple Bastards will also be introducing for the first time ever on Trutnov’s Battlefield their 5 piece line-up with new axeman Wild Vitto on second guitar which will only enhance their wall of hate/grind fury!

Listen to ‘Malato Terminale’ taken from the ‘Nero In Metastasi’ album!

EMPIRE OF RATS – S/T Debut From Columbus Ohio’s Hardcore Band Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Empire Of Rats - promo cover pic - 2013

4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

EMPIRE OF RATS – The self-titled debut album from Columbus Ohio’s Empire Of Rats was released back on October 31st, 2013, via A389 Recordings. This Hardcore group has taken their inner disgust for society’s status quo, annoying antagonists and whatever else pisses them off, funneling it all into fuel for a freaking impressive debut for (what’s left of) my eardrums. Empire Of Rats don’t screw around with their sonic brutality. If its legit, underground Hardcore that you crave, Empire Of Rats serves it up with ferocity. It’s that easy to explain.

Everything about this debut is pummeling, with the exception of the 1:05 intro to Early Mourning, which boasts a calming acoustic guitar number before succumbing to a mid-tempo (all band) Metal instrumental; an instrumental that reminds me of Metallica’s Ride The Lightning days. Overall, the vocals, musicianship, energy and rage on this album are what diehard Hardcore fans yearn for and I highly endorse Empire Of Rats. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track Listing: Leeches, Another Minute In Hell, Bottomless Pit, Untitled, Society’s Zero, Rats Reign, Sinking, Little From The World, We’re Dead, Exposed, Early Mourning

FULL OF HELL – Announces April Tour With Column Of Heaven & Record Store Day Split With Psywarfare

Full Of Hell - promo band pic - 2014 - #6699

The invincible, noiseblasting killing machine, FULL OF HELL, this week confirms a pair of impending offensives upon the humans, including new tour actions and new studio documentation of their tactics.

FULL OF HELL has joined forces with harsh noise entity PSYWARFARE for a special split 12″ constructed for Record Store Day 2014. The A-side of the cooperative assault is overthrown by FULL OF HELL, stripping the hypergrind elements from their barrage, here focusing on their distressing racket/static infiltrations, sampling in choruses, looping feedback and experimenting with more distressing and melodic calls, within the track, “Thee Unsurmountable Wall.” The B-side is encompassed by “The Exotic Sounds Of…,” a mesmerizing twenty-one minute-long, occult mental passage into places unknown courtesy of Dwid Hellion’s PSYWARFARE.

Just days after the RSD split with PSYWARFARE is released, FULL OF HELL will embark on the next phase of their nearly nonstop touring crusade, this week confirming a ten-city East Cost run from April 24th through May 3rd with Toronto powerviolence crew, Column Of Heaven, and Cleveland harsh noise act, Nyodene D.

FULL OF HELL Tour w/ Column Of Heaven:

4/24/2014 TBA – Buffalo, NY w/ Gas Chamber

4/25/2014 TBA – Boston, MA w/ Cleansing Wave

4/26/2014 AS220 – Providence, RI w/ Fucking Invincible

4/27/2014 Silent Barn – New York, NY w/ The Communion

4/28/2014 The Gütah – New Brunswick, NJ w/ Fleshtemple

DROPDEAD – Providence Activists Dispatch Duo Of Joint EPs Via Armageddon Label

Posted in hardcore bands, hardcore punk, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , on February 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Dropdead - band logo - b&w - 2014 - banner

Longtime political hardcore/punk activists, DROPDEAD, have just released two brand new EPs via their own Armageddon Label, both of them split releases; one with RUIDOSA INMUNDICIA and the other with SYSTEMATIC DEATH.

Since 1991, Providence, Rhode Island’s DROPDEAD has protested humankind’s attrition towards the environment and its inhabitants, including each other, along the way amassing an impressive arsenal of fully independent releases, including several full-length studio and live LPs, and split releases with Crossed Out, Rupture, Totalitär, Unholy Grave, Suppression, Converge and others.

Having toured internationally, razing clubs, squats and basements on multiple continents for two decades, the band has been a major East Coast US contributor to inspiring entire new generations of extreme music fans to rise up against tyranny and injustice at maximum speed and aggression through their “fucking assholes don’t get it” credo. DROPDEAD‘s latest audio collapses come in the form of two new 7″ vinyl split releases with a pair of high-potency international acts.

One of these brutal head-to-head platters is with Vienna, Austria’s punk shredders, RUIDOSA INMUNDICIA, the female-fronted outfit raging in the riotous vein of Antischism, Capitalist Casualties, Los Crudos and Hellnation. The split leads with “A Fall Of Empires” and “Last Breath” from DROPDEAD on the A-side, and counters with “Donde Esta La Solucion,” “Asco” and “Blanco Y Negro” from RUIDOSA INMUNDICIA on the B-side.

The second new output comes in the form of theFighting For Life 7″ split with longtime Japanese punk/hardcore outfit, SYSTEMATIC DEATH. In existence since 1983 this outfit spews forth rabid political hardcore along the lines of Gauze, S.O.B.,Infest, GISM and Lärm, and here overthrows the B-side of the split with the tracks “Suji” and “Dashing,” while DROPDEAD overloads side A with their newest attacks in the form of “Foundation” and “The Final Chapter.”

Both splits are available now at THIS LOCATION.

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

Candlelight Records is proud to announce the signing of Irish hardcore punks Coldwar! Debut Candlelight Records album coming 2014.

Equally thrilled by the signing, Coldwar had this to say about it, “Coldwar are proud to announce that we have signed to Candlelight Records. We are very excited about our future with Candlelight and are honoured to be on a label with such a varied and talented collection of artists.”

This is Coldwar with their latest recording ‘Pantheist’.

Listen to Heart Of Darkness from the upcoming Coldwar album Pantheist:

Pantheism: The belief that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent God, or that the universe (or nature) is identical with divinity. Pantheists thus do not believe in a personal or anthropomorphic god.

The darkness of the soul, esoteric symbology, natural evil, scrutinization of the irregularity of the Gregorian calendar, the meltdown crisis point at which capitalist society presently finds itself, and the possible final gasp of our current ‘material age’, to pave way for a potential revolutionary shift in values-consciousness for a jaded humanity. These are some of the varied concepts with which Coldwar lyrically engage, in their latest anthology, and forth-coming release ‘Pantheist’.

Formed in 1999 in Dublin, Ireland, Coldwar are influenced by underground hardcore punk and extreme metal. Fuelled by a rejection of Church & State institutions and other oppressive, intolerant and absolutist states of mind.

To date, Coldwar have toured Ireland and the UK as well as having made several trips to Europe and the USA. The band have also played a number of festivals including Wacken Open Air (Germany), Obscene Extreme Festival (Czech Republic), Load As Fuck (USA), Day Of Darkness (Ireland), Up the Punks (UK), Cork Winter Fest (Ireland), Burning Oak Festival (Ireland), Subvert Festival (UK) and more.

Coldwar have shared the stage and toured alongside bands such as Fear Factory, Soulfly, Sepultura, EHG, Suffocation, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Discharge, Napalm Death and many more.

With four releases previous since their inception via Underground Movement each release has gained the band a growing fan base.

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
