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.

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

Serious Black - Mirror World - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MO999ILMFN33

The year 2015 started more than promising for fans of high-class Melodic Metal: SERIOUS BLACK, a so-called “all-star band” appeared on the scene and dropped their highly acclaimed debut album As Daylight Breaks. Much to the surprise of many, the band indeed proved to be a real band and they kept their promise of rocking the stages wherever possible.

So during only a year they not only successfully released a fantastic debut album, but also went on extensive European tours with HammerFall and later Gamma Ray. In addition, SERIOUS BLACK was chosen to be special guest on Kamelot’s German Summer shows and also played numerous festivals in Europe. Being that active in the past 18 months, it’s surprising to see the band announcing a brand new studio album already. You’ll be even more surprise when Mirrorworld sees its release: SERIOUS BLACK have managed to excel their excellent debut! Prepare for something special: the “Mirrorworld” opens on September 9th…

Mirrorworld will be available as CD, Digipak (7 bonus tracks), ltd. Vinyl, ltd. Vinyl bundle (“Mirrorworld” + “As Daylight Breaks”) & ltd. box set.

Pre-order here: http://shop.afm-records.de/en/serious-black-en

The Monolith to step up and fill in for Phil for these 3 festivals in Germany. Phil will miss seeing all of you this time but he promises to ‘Deliver’ once he returns for the dates we have booked in the fall. Please help us wish Phil and his girlfriend a positive and safe delivery. Thank you!”

Behold The Monolith - Architects Of The Void - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #3399GMSILAOTT

BEHOLD! THE MONOLITH released its third full-length album, Architects of the Void on September 30, 2015. Stream the album in its entirety here. Purchase Architects of the Void on CD and vinyl at http://beholdthemonolith.storenvy.com/.

Architects of the Void follows critically acclaimed  2012 release Defender, Redeemist and marks the debut of vocalist Jordan Nalley who took the reigns following the tragic 2013 death of Kevin McDade in a car accident. The album is the first for new bassist Jason “Cas” Casanova (SASQUATCH). The album artwork was created by Dusty Peterson (Bloodbath, Six Feet Under, Oceano).

Praise for Architects of the Void:

“Healthy doses of doomy riffage, pummeling heaviness, and expansive/exploratory parts that just might take you on a journey to another planet.” – MetalSucks

“With elements of all good things that are heavy, the new release by Behold! The Monolith is a musical battle hammer shattering the skulls of the weak and feeble. ” – The Ripple Effect

“The Monolith deals in stoner/sludge stuff somewhat akin to High on Fire and/or Lord Dying, with song titles and artwork that would give The Sword’s J.D. Cronise a hard-on.” – Hellbound.ca

GHOUL – The Masked Malefactors Of Creepsylvania Premiere “Shred The Dead” – Tour With Carcass Underway + “Dungeon Bastards” Release Day Draws Near

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 21, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

GHOUL - promo band pic - 2016 - #33MO99ILMFNSO663

Today, the masked malefactors of Creepsylvania GHOUL are pleased to contaminate the airwaves with a premiere of “Shred The Dead” from their forthcoming Dungeon Bastards opus. In “Shred The Dead,” vocalist Baron Samedi’s commands to retrieve the Omicron Bomb fall on deaf ears, as GHOUL retreats deeper into the Catacombs muttering half-hearted assurances; that is, until Samedi unleashes an army of revivified corpses to persuade them otherwise.  

Elaborates guitarist Digestor:“‘Shred The Dead’ is a song about undead fiends, eldritch, mysterious skateboard tricks, and the efficacy of the prevent defense. If Mr. Mustaine is reading this, I’m sure our lawyers can work something out. You seem like a reasonable man.”

Hear “Shred The Dead” at THIS LOCATION.

You can also check out the band’s fan-made “Ghoulunatics” video HERE as well as the previously unearthed “Bringer Of War” playing at Revolver RIGHT HERE.

GHOUL is currently mucking up stages with blood and dread nationwide supporting Carcass and Crowbar on a seventeen-city US tour. The One Foot In The Grave Tour 2016 will come to a close August 8th. Additional support is being provided by Night Demon. Following their run with Carcass, GHOUL will infect four more cities on a smattering of headlining shows. See all confirmed dates below.
