Southern Lord has issued the details of WOLFBRIGADE‘s impending tenth full-length, The Enemy: Reality, now confirmed for release on November 8th.

On the wind-bitten plains of Skaraborg, Sweden, the wolves have arisen once again. They are on the prowl, yearning for your blood, warm and fresh. On their tenth album, WOLFBRIGADE cuts deep, and they are ruthless. This time they have only submitted to themselves, from recording to production and artwork working in isolation, resulting in heightened senses and sharpened fangs. The ten songs rip into both body and mind, with no holds barred regarding power, substance, and melody.

This time around, WOLFBRIGADE‘s hybrid beast of Swedish hardcore and death metal known as Lycanthro Punk has become even more distinct. These ten tracks of destruction display both a love for 80s metal hooks and intros, as well as primitive hardcore brutality.

The lyrics on The Enemy: Reality dissect the state of human existence, the bizarre animal presence that we are. The naked apes. Exploring the dynamics that rule man. Power and submission. Manipulation. The injustices of inequality. This is an album seething with anger and frustration.

The band remarks, “Humans are a narcissistic breed, incapable of real change. This album is a way for us to deal with the fact that we are one of a large pack, submitting to the same societal norms as everyone else. No matter how much we would like it to be different. We are all on the same crazy trip.”

The Enemy: Reality will see release through Southern Lord on November 8th. Watch for audio premieres, preorders, and more to post in the weeks ahead. Following a one-off show in Los Angeles, California with Final Conflict and Dropdead and a set at Off Limits Festival in Naucalpan, Mexico last week, expect new live dates for WOLFBRIGADE to post over the coming months.

The Enemy: Reality – Track Listing:

  1. Sum Of All Vices
  2. Fire Untamed
  3. The Wolfman
  4. Hammer To The Skull
  5. Narcissistic Breed
  6. Nightmare Of Wolves
  7. Doomsday Dominion
  8. Wells Of Despair
  9. Human Beast
  10. Hunt The Hunter

ENFORCED – WAR Records To Release “At The Walls” LP From Richmond Crossover Outfit; Tour Dates With Iron Reagan, Sacred Reich And Leeway Closing In

Posted in hardcore metal, Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on May 2, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

WAR Records welcomes Richmond, Virginia-based crossover outfit ENFORCED to the label roster and is currently preparing the band’s At The Walls LP for summer release. With the album’s final details being sorted for pressing, the band is about to embark on a run of tour dates through the Northeastern US and into Canada supporting a vicious tour package with Sacred Reich, Iron Reagan, and Leeway.

Formed in 2016, ENFORCED picks up where Sepultura and Cro-Mags left off and infuses their own volatile, hardcore fury into the hardcore/thrash crossover sound of the late ’80s. Fronted by a voice that could only belong to that of a madman and unloading nonstop blazing riffs and pummeling breakdowns in every track, the band demolishes everything in their path, leaving a trail of smoldering wreckage and pure decimation anywhere they perform.

ENFORCED‘s impending At The Walls LP features a remixed and remastered version of the 2017 demo and their “Retaliation” promo, and introduces two brand new songs to the mix. All tracks were recorded by Bob Quirk and mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, Candy). In addition, Dwid Hellion (Integrity, Psywarfare) provides guest vocals to the track “Skinned Alive” who also created the apocalyptic album artwork for the LP.

Expect nothing but total war on stage from ENFORCED as they explode into 2019; a must-hear for fans of classic crossover/thrash from Nuclear Assault, Demolition Hammer, and Devastation, as well as modern shredders Skeletal Remains, Foreseen, and War Hungry. Watch for the final details on ENFORCED‘s At The Walls LP to be issued in the days ahead for an early summer release through WAR Records.

In the meantime, check out a vicious ENFORCED live set from United Blood 2019 earlier this month RIGHT HERE or below:

ENFORCED is booking tour dates into the summer months surrounding the release of the LP. Beginning next week, they will be out on the road supporting Sacred Reich, Iron Reagan, and Leeway from May 9th through May 17th, with shows in Asbury Park, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Boston, Albany, Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, and Toronto. ENFORCED tours home with shows in Philadelphia and Virginia Beach, followed by a hometown show supporting Accused AD on May 25th. Additional tour dates are to be expected through the coming months.

New Noise Magazine is now streaming the new single from New Jersey-based ROBOTS AND MONSTERS and their impending Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight EP.

“Signing Off” is the closing track to the new seven-song record which follows a concept about battling your own mind, and as the band informs us of the track, “By the end of his journey, our anti-hero takes full ownership of his thoughts. In ‘Signing Off,’ we find him embracing the dread, the sadness. He yearns for peace, to ‘leave it all behind.’ Whether that means a physical end or a symbolic end to this internal suffering is up to the listener to decide.”

Hear ROBOTS AND MONSTERS’ new track “Signing Off” only through New Noise Magazine RIGHT HERE.

Also stream the EP opening “King Of The World” HERE.

Robots And Monsters - Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MOILN

With its roots tracing to bands including Mucky Pup, The Bloodhound Gang, and more, ROBOTS AND MONSTERS owns a sound that deftly combines the commanding crunch of Metal with the groove, punch, and emotion of Hardcore and post-Hardcore, a trait which finds the band comfortably sharing bills populated with any type of aggressive music.

Their upcoming Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight EP follows a concept about battling your own mind, the theme backed by high-energy Metal and dosed with old-school Hardcore. The seven-song storyline was recorded at Portrait Recording Studios with engineer John Ferrara, and mastered by Chris Badami, and features art by bassist Bill Bergmann.

ROBOTS AND MONSTERS will independently release the Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight EP on CD and digital formats September 2nd; preorders are available via the band HERE.

ROBOTS AND MONSTERS continues to book shows through the Summer months in preparation of the new EP, including a show in New London, Connecticut on August 6th, a show in Brooklyn supporting All Out War on August 13th, and more, with more one-off shows and widespread tour dates to be added.

ROBOTS AND MONSTERS Live:
8/06/2016 33 Golden Street – New London, CT
8/13/2016 Lucky 13 – Brooklyn, NY w/ All Out War, Full Scale Riot

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

Critical Praise:

“Full of Hell want to open wounds however they can. The four-piece is so focused on delivering bile-soaked fury that they’ll use nearly anything at their disposal. While most of the tracks are acrid flashes of grind and powerviolence, there are still treks through squeamish noise and torturous hardcore. Seems like there’s always new releases by these guys, but this is the best I’ve heard so far.” – Decibel

“…Rudiments of Mutilation is an incredible album that should not go unheard. It is sick, unnerving, excellently established, moody, violent, and one of the best damn records that will be put out this year. You want dark? Here it is motherfuckers. Eat it up. 9.5/10” – Metal Injection

BL’AST! – An Unreleased Recording Session Brought To Life By Dave Grohl

Posted in hardcore, hardcore metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 5, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

BL'AST! - promo cover pic - Blood!

Set For September Release Via Southern Lord

_____________________________________

As far as stories of lost and found recorded material go, few tales can be told where all the pieces of the puzzle come together in fortunate ways, resulting in a brand new recording that surprised even the band themselves.

Having formed in 1982, infamous Santa Cruz hardcore legends BL’AST! released their first album, The Power of Expression in 1985. This debut blew everyone away and went on to become one of the highly sought after, “must- have” hardcore albums of the ‘80s. BL’AST! was beyond intense, continually pushing the boundaries of hardcore with their advanced musicianship, unstoppable energetic delivery and explosive live performances. This overwhelming power caught the attention of SST records, who released the band’s second album, It’s In My Blood in 1987.

Their third LP, Take The Manic Ride, was then released by the label in 1989. BL’AST!‘s wide-eyed, ambitious approach and intense perseverance became an influence for many bands to come. Shortly after the release of Take The Manic Ride, the band broke up and their story was buried by time and dust….UNTIL NOW!

Earlier this year BL’AST! guitarist Mike Neider contacted Southern Lord with news that he had found some mysterious old BL’AST! master tapes in an abandoned storage locker. Greg Anderson, a BL’AST! fanatic, wasted no time in sending the tapes to a studio to be baked. Needless to say, after 25 years gathering dust, the quality had deteriorated. Still, nobody could have anticipated what would follow. With the audio digitized, Southern Lord contacted fellow longtime BL’AST! fiend, Dave Grohl about mixing this recording, his response was an enthusiastic “FUCK YEAH!, LETS DO THIS”!

BL'AST! - Large Band Logo - red:black:white

Whilst inside Grohl’s famous 606 Studios (and with the Neve console as featured in the recent Grohl produced documentary Sound City) an astonishing discovery was made; a completely unheard, unreleased BL’AST! recording session from the mid-‘80s.

The lineup of the band at the time of the recording included second guitarist William Duvall (from Neon Christ, and now the current vocalist for Alice In Chains) who had moved from his hometown of Atlanta out to Santa Cruz on a tip from mutual friends, Corrosion of Conformity, to join the band. Unfortunately, his tenure with BL’AST! was short-lived and no recordings from that lineup were ever released.

From the thunderous bass intro of “Only Time Will Tell” to the apocalyptic warnings of “It’s In My Blood,” the album completely rips and rages from start to finish. All parties involved were completely amazed at how vibrant, unique and fresh this newly discovered material sounded. All things considered, it is miraculous the record survived this long and that everyone who was involved in bringing this recording to life, could be. Everything fell into place, when it could have easily crumbled along the way. This record is a time capsule that is meant to be heard!

There is no doubt in our minds that Blood! will be a crucial purchase for any current hardcore fiend as well as punk/hardcore fans who loved the band back in the day. START THE MACHINE!

Counterparts - The Difference Between Hell and Home - promo coverAlbum Photography by Stephanie Mill

COUNTERPARTS has the Hardcore world waiting in anticipation for their third studio album, The Difference Between Hell and Home, which is set for a July 23rd release. Heartbreaking and honest, chaotic yet purposeful, fans can expect the same spitting aggression and emotive lyricism they’ve come to appreciate from COUNTERPARTS, magnified and turned all the way up.

Vocalist, Brendan Murphy comments, “There was so much preparation, thought, hard work, whatever you want to call it put into this record. We spent more time on these songs than I can even remember, and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It’s everything we’ve ever done so far, but better. If you give a shit about Counterparts, you will like this record.”

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS “Walk Through Exits Only” – Some METAL Thoughts…

Posted in Extreme Metal, hardcore, hardcore metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on June 9, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals - Walk through exits only - promo cover

Philip H. Anselmo needs no introduction to any Metal fan on this planet. Metal legend. ‘Nuff said. Now, the coveted Metal resume of Philip H. Anselmo is expanding once again with his newest band: Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. A July 16th release date has been set for the release of his band’s album: Walk Through Exits Only.

Just the album title alone can easily sum up the path that Philip H. Anselmo has taken during his multi-brilliant Metal career. Philip H. Anselmo has persevered and stayed true to the Metal cause. I dare anyone to tell this Metal legend that “the entrance is that way, sir.” Like him or not, Philip H. Anselmo is and always will be a powerful Metal statesman and I personally could not see it any other way. Maybe my album title interpretation may differ from others; that’s what makes art such a dynamic gift upon our civilizations, I gather.

________________________________

I am beyond excited, that over the years Philip H. Anselmo has continued onward with one project after another; exemplifying that stagnation is for pussies in the first place. While many Metal fans speak of Ozzy Osbourne, Rob (The Metal God) Halford, Lemmy Kilmister and Alice Cooper (for examples) as our living Metal leaders, I cannot overlook the Metal historic importance of Philip H. Anselmo and his profound contributions to our Metal genres. This Metal legend has obviously touched all of our beloved Metal genres… and he has succeeded magnificently. In my Metal opinion, Philip H. Anselmo has.

I’ll be purchasing Walk Through Exits Only on July 16th, 2013. I will be happier than a pig in the most filthy of shit too. The realization that Philip H. Anselmo gives a damn about keeping Metal true and legitimately badass will overcome me once again, as I let his new album scald my senses and knock me flat on my Metal lovin’ ass. Metal be thy name.

* Walk Through Exits will be released on Philip H. Anselmo’s very own Housecore Records.

Back on January 8th, 2013, the split CD War Of The Gargantuas was released via Housecore Records. Sharing Metal space with the rabid Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals gives you a couple of titanic songs that will not be on Walk Through Exits Only. I strongly urge y’all to go out and buy it! Whoa.
