Hardcore/ Crossover Thrash Metal Act R.A.I.D Release Second Single Off Upcoming Album “Outrage”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on May 5, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Hyderabad based Hardcore/ Crossover Thrash Metal act R.A.I.D – The second single called- ‘Outrage’ is part of the next full length that the band is planning to unveil soon. The title and release date will be announced soon via Rottweiler Records.

Front man Rueben says: “The song ‘Outrage’ is about breaking free from the norms and pressures created by society/the people around us. A lot of poisonous trends have been created that affect a good way of life. To overcome these hurdles, the only way out is to have an unbreakable state of mind. We are the captain of our fate, the master of our soul, the boss of our dreams and the king of our goals. It is up to us to negate the poison around us and create our own legacy.” The song is rebellious and speaks in the tone of a fallen soul who goes out to seek what he is meant to do. This second single is also set to be unleashed via the Digital 45 (where the band releases an additional track) along with the single.

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.

CANNIBAL CORPSE continues to tour in support of their critically lauded Red Before Black full-length released last year via Metal Blade Records. Many words come to mind when you hear the name CANNIBAL CORPSE, but only one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it abundantly clear who sets the standard when it comes to manifesting consistently compelling music that is as brutal as it is complex. “Throughout our career, we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. Red Before Black continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster.

“We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the rawest sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest, and catchiest record.”

About Pale Mare
Pale Mare is a Toronto-based heavy metal band, born out of the desire to play music that is loud, aggressive, and full of thick groovy riffs.  The band released their self-titled EP in November of 2017 through Medusa Crush Records and was met with high praise from the likes of Metal Hammer, Exclaim!, and many more.

Having provided local support for Eyehategod, Corrosion of Conformity, Windhand, Satans Satyres, Weedeater, Serial Hawk, Black Wizard, King Buffalo, Set and Setting and Perturbator, Pale Mare have established themselves in their home town of Toronto as a massive force to be reckoned with, and have attracted a loyal fan base through relentlessly crushing live performances. Their sound has been likened to early Baroness, High On Fire, Mastodon, and Black Tusk; full of fire, attitude, brimstone, tone, and soul.

Praise for Pale Mare
“Sounding like Motorhead developing a penchant for doom, this self-titled EP is raw, heavy and filthy in the best possible way.” — Metal Hammer

“You guys are bad, man. Baaad” – Pepper Keenan (C.O.C.)
