Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, metal music, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , , on January 2, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Having won over audiences across Europe via major Metal/Hardcore tours and massive festival appearances since their 1993 inception, German Metalcore heavyweights HATE SQUAD will drop their newest full-length, Katharsis, onto North American audiences via Massacre Records this January 17th.

The Hannover-based quartet will kick off the new year with their sixth LP to date, surging with nearly an hour of the band’s pummeling blend of death metal and hardcore. Recorded and mixed by Ralf Müller at Rape of Harmonies Studios, produced by Müller and HATE SQUAD, and mastered by Olman Viper at Hertzwerk (Hamburg), the album clearly makes the listener aware that they are a force to be reckoned with in the new year, and once again prove why HATE SQUAD remain one of Germany’s leading Metalcore exports.

Check out the title track to the album and more at this location.

Katharsis Track Listing:

Deep Scars


Your Rotten Life

The One



Misanthropic Soul

Vicious Assault

Old Times…Good Times!



Face Your Demon

Live And Learn


Burkhard Schmitt – vocals

Mark Künnemann – guitars

IMORA – ‘If The Shoe Fits’ – Song From ‘Happily Neverafter’ EP: A Scorching & Melodic Listen

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metalcore, Music, post hardcore, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on January 1, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

IMORA – Check out below the new single If The Shoe Fits from IMORA, a Metalcore / Post Hardcore band from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. This song is from the forthcoming EP from IMORA: Happily Neverafter via Ship Out Recordings.

The balance of both vocals that rage and croon are done with impressiveness on this song. Combining the heavy and melodic comes across very credible with IMORA on If The Shoe Fits. IMORA already has shared the stage with: ChiodosEvergreen Terrace, Stick To Your Guns and Asking Alexandria, to name a few. This band sounds like a toughened and talented unit ready for the next big step and might very well have to be reckoned with in 2012 and beyond.

If you dig If The Shoe Fits after listening to it a few times, then my Metal advice is buy this new EP from IMORA – Happily Neverafter. This EP will be available on iTunes starting January 10th, 2012.


Jeff Leuschen – vocals

Dave Daniel – drums/vocals

Ryan Brosius – guitar

Mac – bass

Topher – keys/samples

The Bastardized Recordings-Team is happy to announce the signing of Italians Vegan Straight Edge-Powerhouse Purification. The band has just signed a deal with us and will release a new full-length in 2012. We are really happy to work with a band we know and support since the days of our youth.

Here is what the band has to say:
“We are very excited to finally have signed a deal with Bastardized records, we were looking for a solid German label and we are stoked to be able to work with Marco. Expect our new record A Torch To Pierce The Night to be released in the next months, it took a few months for us to officialise this after we recorded the songs before our South American Tour but we’ll be finally able to have it on CD!”

Vans Warped Tour ’11 – 2011 Tour Compilation CD: 50 Songs! 50 Bands! = A Rockin’ Bargain To Jump All Over!

Posted in alternative metal, alternative rock, alternative rock albums, Hard Rock, hardcore metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Vans Warped Tour ’11 Compilation CD – The annual compilation CD of Vans Warped Tour was released on June 7th, 2011, on SideOneDummy Records. This 2011 Tour Compilation edition is a double CD Digipak that contains 50 songs from 50 bands! The record label world known for it’s stable of Punk Rock bands along with Vans Warped Tour has released what quite possibly may be the greatest bargain in the Rock Music industry once again. For fans of Alternative Metal, Alternative Rock, Hardcore, Metalcore and Punk Rock, this 2 CD compilation is like a double jolt of Rockin’ lightning, caught in an F’n empty bottle of Guiness.

From PARAMORE  to ELWAY, with A DAY TO REMEMBER in-between, this compilation covers the bands that have recently kept this Vans Warped Tour as a legit leader in the touring Rock festival industry. With the presence of The Devil Wears Prada (Anatomy) and Asking Alexandria (Closure), this compilation is represented fiercely by two young and Extremely Heavy bands that are on the F’n rise.

Rock fans not familiar with the bands affiliated with the ongoing Vans Warped Tour, should benefit immensely from picking up this 2 CD compilation. I picked up my copy new for $5.99 (U.S.) and couldn’t be more satisfied with the overall package of bands and songs. With more Heavy and Extreme bands being added to the bill for Vans Warped Tour in recent years, coupled with the diversity of Alternative, Hardcore and mainstay Punk Rock representation, this is a touring Rock festival that truly knows how to unite Rock genres with one goal in mind: To spread the word of Rock by playing loud, proud and with F’n attitude!
