 _____________________________________________

A furious and infectious maelstrom of doom-infused thrash mastery, Dark Path - the blazing debut LP from the Harrison-based EARTHLING quartet — was released via their cohorts at Forcefield Records in May, and was well-received by humans involved in the underground music media as well as innocent bystanders. Through an organic, blackened, thrashing hybrid of metal drawing influences from across the spectrum of extreme music, the band’s corrosive live attack was finally captured on record.

Recorded by Garret Morris (Windhand, Cough, Parasytic, Bastard Sapling) and mastered by Mikey Allred (Inter Arma, Hellbender, Across Tundras), Dark Path is a coarse, diverse display of the band’s terrorizing spirit; a ravenous force that has guided the group through countless shows, relentless demo recordings, and over five years of sheer sacrifice.

Stream all of Dark Path AT THIS LOCATION.

Critical Praise:

“…a ripping blend of crust and proto-black metal riffs that boil from a vast melting pot of extremity; their truly diverse extreme sound also brings with it the incessant need to thrash.” – Terrorizer

 

“…like bong ripping yourself into a black hole where the other side is the embodiment of Mob Rules era Sabbath with the addition of some major Mega Man shred duals.” – Mxdwn

Fans of Denver Thrashers HAVOK are beginning to feel the growing excitement for the approaching North American release date of the band’s third full-length, Unnatural Selection. The album’s lead single, “Give Me Liberty… Or Give Me Death,” impacted metal radio earlier this week; the only single to land on CMJ’s Loud Rock “Most Added” report. Sirius/XM Radio plus Syracuse’s WAQX, Baltimore’s WIYY, and Northern New Jersey metal powerhouse WSOU, among others, are a few of the key early supporters of the single.

To celebrate, Candlelight Records today makes Give Me Liberty…Or Give Me Death available as a FREE download at the label’s official Bandcamp page. The topical thrash anthem delivers the young band’s classic thrash and old-school metal sound.

Currently touring Europe with Suffocation and Cephalic CarnageHAVOK will kick off North American touring just after the June 25 release of Unnatural Selection. Set to begin July 22, the headlining tour will see the four-piece journey through the southern states, travelling up the eastern seaboard before making their debut performance at Montreal’s annual Heavy MTL festival on August 11.

Pasadena Napalm Division - JordanOverturf1_1

May 21, 2013, San Francisco – Pasadena Napalm Division, the Houston-based Thrash Metal outfit that features D.R.I. singer Kurt Brecht and members of Dead Horse, are currently streaming their self-titled debut album (May 28, Minus Head Records) via Revolver (http://www.revolvermag.com/news/exclusive-pasadena-napalm-division-led-by-kurt-brecht-of-d-r-i-premiere-new-self-titled-album.html).

Rock Revolt Magazine said the album has “riffs that rip your gut out” while Cosmos Gaming said Pasadena Napalm Division is “a fun release” that “will please fans of both D.R.I. and Crossover Thrash.”

“Fans of D.R.I. and Deadhorse will rejoice. PND is what Thrash Metal should sound like in 2013,” said singer (and D.R.I. frontman) Kurt Brecht. “Working together with some of the members of Texas based cult band, Deadhorse, we have come up with some hard hitting tunes that span genres and will withstand the test of time. I can’t wait to take the Pasadena Napalm Division machine on the road in support of our first LP on Minus Head Records.”

Pre-orders are available now via iTunes:

NUCLEAR “Apátrida” EP – Thrash Metal Defenders From The Republic Of Chile = Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, thrash metal albums, thrash metal bands with tags , , , , , on April 25, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

NUCLEAR-Band - promo pic_2012

NUCLEAR Are: Sebastian Puente (Guitars), Matias Leonicio (Vocals), Eugenio Sudy (Drums), Roberto Soto (Bass) and Francisco Haussmann (Guitars).

___________________________________

NUCLEAR Apátrida - If you’re a loyal old school Thrasher or just addicted to Thrash Metal that’s potent enough to set off the Richter Magnitude Scale, then NUCLEAR is a Thrash Metal band that you need to have your ears, brain and entire nervous system acquainted with.

NUCLEAR are from the grand Republic Of Chile and formed their Thrash Metal pack back in 2003. With 4 studio and 2 live albums to their Metal credit, NUCLEAR has the Thrashing credentials in their songwriting, musicianship, vocals and old school attitude; just a couple of listens to Apátrida and any Thrash Metal aficionado shall agree!

Originality can sometimes be difficult to achieve within the Thrash Metal genre; with so many legendary bands having already “done that”, only NUCLEAR brings a unique style to the Thrash masses and I’m very, very impressed. Not as extreme as the iconic Slayer and not as over produced as the legendary Metallica’s post Master Of Puppets catalog, NUCLEAR follows more in line with an old school Anthrax meets old school Exodus (with Megadeth in-between).

Not afraid to approach politics as a lyrical theme, NUCLEAR gets their point across with blazing sonic beats and a dual guitar attack that has my neck begging for mercy after each listen to Apátrida. Wether NUCLEAR’s vocalist Matias Leonicio sings in English or Spanish, the Metal point is made very clear: there is credible passion in his voice and Thrash Metal is a universal language all its own.

Get into NUCLEAR and allow this rising giant of a Thrash band to kick your ass. NUCLEAR has arrived my fellow Metal brethren! Metal be thy name.

POTENTIAL THREAT SF – To Release “Civilization Under Threat” On June 18th, Via Old School Metal Records

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, thrash metal bands with tags , , , , , on April 18, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Potential Threat SF - promo cover pic

San Francisco Bay Area Thrash bands have long been known for their in-your-face approach to music, and POTENTIAL THREAT SF are no strangers to that tradition. Civilization Under Threat from Bay Area Thrash Metallers POTENTIAL THREAT SF will be released June 18th through Old School Metal Records.

Originally formed as a five-piece in 1986, they have shared the stage with everyone from Testament to Slayer to Cro-Mags to Nuclear Assault and just recently returned from touring with Death Angel. Their hard-working, no holds barred attitude carries over to their live shows. Though they put every ounce of grit and determination into their set, they still manage not to sound like angry old fucks.

Their mentality is simple – it’s just as easy for a band to get the audience involved in their show as it is to be pissed off and push them away. In short, they still have fun and show it on stage and to the fans, regardless of how long they’ve been playing or how many people are in the attendance.

Potential Threat SF - large logo - B&W

Their newest offering, Civilization Under Threat (to be released by OSM Records), gives a nod to the old school by combining aggressive, commanding vocals with dual guitars and a thundering bottom end. Engineered and mastered by Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Testament, Heathen) at Trident Studios has given the album a massively heavy quality without being over-produced.

The band consists of Mike Noble on lead vocals and lead/rhythm guitars, Daniel Sheridan on lead/rhythm guitars, Kenny Noble on drums and Damien Sisson (also in Death Angel) on bass.

NOISEM (Formerly Necropsy) Signs With A389 Recordings

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, thrash metal bands with tags , , , , , on March 21, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Noisem - Agony Defined - promo cover pic

Baltimore-based A389 Recordings is prepared to proudly unleash the debut LP from one of the most promising new names in today’s Thrash Metal community, having signed young hometown act NOISEM. A389 had announced the signing of the band earlier this month, only then they were still under their previous moniker, Necropsy. With their debut album about to hit the band felt it was time for a change and now charge out of the gate as NOISEM.

NOISEM is young, both as a unit and in actual age, the four members all between fifteen and twenty years old, their energetic youth showing through in the blistering fast nonstop assault that encompasses the listener with their debut LP, Agony Defined. Boasting high-octane death/thrash tracks in the tradition of early Slayer, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Kreator and Nuclear Assault with a filthy and crispy delivery, Agony Defined unloads nine neck-mangling tracks in under twenty-six minutes, every attack surging with massive divebomb guitar solos and punishing beats.

A389 will release Agony Defined on CD, LP and digital download on June 11th; fans of Audiopain, Havok, Toxic Holocaust and the originators/masters of the style will not be disappointed, and all non believers will be extinguished.

NOISEM - Large Logo!

Be slaughtered by the opening track “Voices In The Morgue” RIGHT HERE.

Coinciding with the album’s release, NOISEM has been confirmed to annihilate the masses of extreme music fans invading their turf for Maryland Deathfest 2013, set to storm the stage opening night, Thursday, May 23rd alongside Abigail, Bolt Thrower, Cobalt and more. The band has also been confirmed to take part in the upcoming installment of the Scion Rock Fest in Memphis, Tennessee on June 1st with the Melvins, Vision of Disorder, Municipal Waste, The Casualties, Impaled, A Life Once Lost and a ton of others with many still to be announced.

SATAN – Legendary British Heavy Metal band SATAN will release Life Sentence, their first studio full-length under the SATAN banner since 1987′s Suspended Sentence, on April 29th in Europe and in May in the U.S. on Listenable Records.

The cover art for the album (pictured above) was drawn by famed artist Eliran Kantor (SODOM, TESTAMENT, HATEBREED – http://www.elirankantor.com) and depicts a similar graphic concept as their 1983 debut, Court In The Act. Mixed by Dario Mollo at Damage Inc. Studio in Italy and tracked late last year at First Avenue in Newcastle, Life Sentence is a very strong uptempo Heavy Metal album that will undoubtedly become a Metal classic.

Fittingly, Life Sentence will mark the 30th anniversary of their greatly acclaimed debut Court In The Act. The new album will also feature the same line-up that appeared on that now-classic piece of Metal history.

Live footage of the band performing “Heads Will Roll/Hunt You Down” at a 2011 gig at The Purple Turtle in London can be seen at http://www.vimeo.com/29945653.

___________________________________________

SATAN are a Heavy Metal band originating from Newcastle, England in 1980, known as part of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement. Though generally obscure throughout their career, the band is considered influential for playing a form of proto-Thrash Metal that was fairly advanced by the standards of the early 1980s. SATAN remained inactive until re-assembling for a one-off gig at Germany’s Wacken Open Air in 2004, and finally reunited in their original Court In The Act line-up for 2011′s Keep It True festival. The band performed at several european festivals in 2011 and 2012 and have announced more festival shows and new album for 2013, to mark the 30th anniversary of their debut release.

EDGE OF ATTACK – BIO:

No good could possibly come out of the frigid Northern lands of Alberta, you say? Well, sorry to tell you, there’s an exception to every rule. Enter smoldering power-thrash five-piece Edge of Attack.

Combining haunting vocals, shredding guitars, complex bass lines, furious drumming and choral and symphonic arrangements with surprising depth, Edge of Attack has not only taken the metal scene by storm, but also by surprise. Having been featured in Revolver magazine, you’d think the band has surely been around for years, but truth be told, they’ve accomplished all this while releasing no more than two singles.

Representing the changes that have taken place and the reinvention of Edge of Attack’s sound, the self-titled album, which was produced by guitarist/vocalist Jurekk Whipple himself and is soon to be released with Spread the Metal Records, is, simply put, a reawakening and rebirthing of power metal with thrash creeping its way into the picture.

Their second album “Chainbreaker” followed in 2006 and their touring extended to Slovenia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, sharing the stage with bands such as Maroon, Deadsoil and Machine Made God.

One of the band’s milestones happened in the summer of 2007 when they were invited to Indonesia for a headliner tour. They played in Bali, Java and Sumatra and performed as headliner on the main stage at the Soundrenaline Festival in Padang, Sumatra, in front of more than 20.000 people! They returned to Indonesia in 2008 and played gigs in front 25.000 people in Pekanbaru and 45.000 people in Medan.

Their latest album “Elegance Of Bloodiness” was released in October 2009 via 7Hard Records.

THE LAST WARNING finished their upcoming album in December 2012. It was recorded at the Music Factory/Prophecy Studios with producer R.D. Liapakis (Mystic Prophecy, Devil’s Train) and sound engineer Christian Schmid.

Vocalist Hans-Jürgen Moitzi commented:
“Working with Lia and Christian was awesome! Lia kicked our asses to get the best out of the band. The new album is a real thrash monster! We are also very proud to be part of the Massacre Records family now. Massacre Records is the perfect label for our upcoming album!”

THE LAST WARNING’s new album is expected to be released in spring 2013 via Massacre Records!
