LOYAL UNTIL DEATH – “Stream Remain Defiant” By Brutal Florida Hardcore Outfit In Its Entirety; LP Out Now Through 1732 Records

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on July 8, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Stream / share / order LOYAL UNTIL DEATH’s Remain Defiant at THIS LOCATION or below:

Remain Defiant, the damaging new LP from South Florida metallic hardcore outfit LOYAL UNTIL DEATH, is now streaming in its entirety, as the album sees release through guitarist/vocalist Nakia Romero’s 1732 Records.

Decibel Magazine hails a band that brings, “a dose of negativity and reality with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer.” No Echo offers, “Pompano Beach, Florida might sound like an ideal place to go for a little rest and relaxation, but don’t tell that to the guys in LOYAL UNTIL DEATH. The metallic hardcore power trio specialize in the kind of aural violence that has more in common with the ugly sounds of Hatebreed and Sworn Enemy than it does with anything even remotely close to ‘beach music.'”

No Clean Singing posts, “Words that come to mind in listening to this barrage of hardcore ferocity are ‘bruising’, ‘battering’, and ‘mauling’. It’s shot through with punishing grooves and blood-red vocal fury, driven by huge low-end power in the rhythm section’s sound and head-whipping riffs that provide a surge of adrenaline.” Mass Movement praises, “LOYAL UNTIL DEATH don’t fuck around, they bring the beat-down and the stage diving, slam happy pit anthems, light up the dancefloor, hit like Mike Tyson on his best day, survey the devastation that they’ve left in their wake and then do it all over again ad infinitum. Like a heads down, see you at the head, two step fueled combination of Turmoil and Terror, LOYAL UNTIL DEATH are a band that you need in your life.”

Remain Defiant is out today on colored vinyl LP, CD, and digital platforms. Stream the album and find preorder bundles at Bandcamp HERE, BigCartel HERE, and iTunes HERE, and see the band’s lyric video for “What Never Dies” HERE or below:

LOYAL UNTIL DEATH once again slaps the world a huge dose of reality with the follow-up to their Born Of Violence full-length. With punishing guitar riffs, merciless lyrics, multiple vocal deliveries, and drums that march to machine gun fire, Remain Defiant is a war cry heard by the Gods, an album created as a big middle finger to the music scene, to society… to the world.

The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Iceman Studios in Royal Palm Beach with maestro Daniel Columbo (Old Habits, Ether, Incited, Cinderblock, Bishop) at the helm, who captured the sound the band was looking for; gut-wrenching guitar tones, earth shattering drums. It was the missing link to take the band’s sound to the next level. Completing the album is artwork by Eliran Kantor. Fans of Terror, Crucified, Hatebreed and other top-tier metallic hardcore acts will not hesitate to dive headfirst into the brutal grooves and antagonistic delivery.

The band’s seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel, Vengeful Ascension was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome). A sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band’s signature brand of audio venom, Vengeful Ascension finds its members at their most accomplished both individually and as a cohesive unit.

Guitarist Sammy Duet’s dense, sub nuclear riff work and possessed solo blitzes are at their most devastating spiraling flawlessly and instinctually around drummer Zack Simmons‘ and bassist James Harvey’s hammering rhythms with frontman Ben Falgoust’s distinctly commanding roar, his acidic prose more enunciated than ever before, complimenting the apocalyptic proceedings.

The Mighty ARGUS Return With ‘From Fields of Fire’ Sept 8th On Cruz Del Sur Music

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on July 5, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

ARGUS - From Fields Of Fire - promo cover pic - 2017 - #33MO73ILMFSO3

Four years after the release Beyond the Martyrs, mighty U.S. Heavy Metal torchbearers ARGUS will release From Fields of Fire September 8th on Cruz Del Sur Music! From Fields of Fire is the defining moment from a band that has delivered the goods album after album. It is the highlight of their career to date and it is an album that will be seen as a highlight in heavy metal circles, not just this year, but for years to come.

ARGUS no longer needs an introduction. Three studio albums, three EPs, several European tours and US showcases and festival appearances have established the name of ARGUS as an established force in the Heavy Metal Universe. Yet, ARGUS is a band not content to rest on its achievements. This is a band that is still hungry – a growing and strengthening animal that shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Judging from the outside almost nothing seems to have changed this time around on From Fields of Fire. Another exceptional and visionary cover provided by Brad Moore, and an Intro / Outro on the track list, another of ARGUS‘ trademarks through all their records. But it’s when you get on the inside, when you bite this album below the flesh to the bones that you realize ARGUS has not only been able to maintain their uniqueness, but the band has raised the quality of their creativity and therefore raised the stakes for their future.

ARGUS:

Brian ‘Butch’ Balich – Vocals

Dave Watson – Guitars

Jason Mucio – Guitars

Justin Campbell – Bass

Kevin Latchaw – Drums

________________________________________________

There’s a definite step ahead in terms of production and songwriting, which has reached the highest quality with the addition of producer and guitarist Dave Watson and bassist Justin Campbell in the line-up. The tense opener “Devils of Your Time” and the emotional closing “No Right to Grieve” are the songs that most clearly express their courage and confidence of exploring unusual sonic paths.

But it’s the entire album that confirms that ARGUS is probably the best band nowadays to pay homage to traditional heavy metal without merely aping their heroes. This is true Metal with doom elements, two worlds that often touch, but have never been as well synthesized into a single, organic sound as they are here. From Fields of Fire features some real Heavy Metal gems: the infectious melodies and guitar-drive of “You Are the Curse” and “216,” the moody “Hour of Longing,” the galloping sound of “As a Thousand Thieves” and the borderline epic, ever-shifting majesty of “Infinite Lives, Infinite Doors.”

From Fields of Fire is an album that whose parts are as strong as the whole, where each track is a highlight; yet, it is also an album that demands to be absorbed as a whole where the music, lyrics and atmosphere reach deep inside of you and take root as your appreciation of this band and this music grows to be a part of you.

Track Listing:

  1. Into The Fields Of Fire
  2. Devils Of Your Time
  3. As A Thousand Thieves
  4. 216
  5. You Are The Curse
  6. Infinite Lives Infinite Doors
  7. Hour Of Longing
  8. No Right To Grieve
  9. From The Fields Of Fire

BENEATH – Icelandic Death Metal Titans To Unleash “Ephemeris” Via Unique Leader This Summer; New Track Streaming

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on July 3, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Beneath - Ephemeris - promo cover pic - 2017 - #33MO33

Ephemeris is the third full length release from Icelandic Death Metal titans, BENEATH. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Fredrik Nordström (Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir, In Flames, At The Gates, etc.), at the acclaimed Studio Fredman in the fall of 2016. After the departure of founding member and drummer Ragnar Sverrison, BENEATH teamed up with Mike Heller (Malignancy, Control/Resist, Fear Factory) to handle the drums for the album. The result is nine tracks of relentless brutality; an odyssey through the forthcoming millenniums of exponential colonization of planets and galaxies by human induced technology; a world where technology has gone way beyond the frontier of the imagination.

Commented vocalist Benedikt Natanael Bjarnason, “We are immensely proud to announce the release of our third full-length album Ephemeris. We teamed up with Mike Heller to provide session drums for the nine-track album which adds a whole new dimension to the soundscape of BENEATH. Make sure to not miss the release date on August 18th!”

Guitarist Jóhann Ingi Sigurðsson adds, “Ephemeris has been a demanding album for us personally and in many ways, it represents a turning point for the band. We’ve always pushed ourselves in ways that keep us invested and engaged in our music­, and on this album, that meant making big changes to our overall sound. There are songs that are a marriage of pure heaviness and brutality, while on the other spectrum there are some very challenging technical arrangements pushing the limits of our playing abilities. In the end, we ended up with an album that feels musically multidimensional and that we are extremely proud of.”

Ephemeris will be released on August 18th via Unique Leader Records. Check out opening track “Constellational Transformation” at the Unique Leader Bandcamp page HERE or below:

Ephemeris – Track Listing:

  1. Constellational Transformation
  2. Eyecatcher
  3. Ephemeris
  4. Alignments
  5. Guillotine
  6. Cities Of The Outer Reaches
  7. Medium Obscurum
  8. Amorphous Globe
  9. Multiangular

BENEATH was formed in 2007. The band released their first EP, Hollow Empty Void, in 2010 which landed them a record deal with Unique Leader Records. In 2012, BENEATH released their first full-length, Enslaved By Fear. The album was mixed by Daniel Bergstrand (Behemoth, In Flames, Meshuggah) at Dug Out studios in Uppsala, Sweden. In 2013, the band headed to Bialystok, Poland to record their second full length, The Barren Throne, with legendary Death Metal producers, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawski, known for their work with bands like Decapitated, Vader, and Behemoth.

The record was released in April 2014 to stellar reviews with No Clean Singing crowning it, “one of the best albums of the year,” hailing their special brand of, “dynamic, intricate Death Metal with a touch of somberness and depressive melody.” Angry Metal Guy concurred, “The Barren Throne is the culmination of … [all the] anti-religion, hate, death, blood, and gore of Enslaved By Fear only this time it’s dragged out across a lengthy eleven grueling abominations,” while The Sludgelord championed the record’s meticulous fusion of, “black, death, and a little bit of prog, all mixed within a cauldron of dark imagery and a tale of a dark being awakening and creating a world of despair and destruction.” 2017 welcomes Ephemeris.
