A furious and infectious maelstrom of doom-infused thrash mastery, Dark Path – the blazing debut LP from the Harrison-based EARTHLING quartet — was released via their cohorts at Forcefield Records in May, and was well-received by humans involved in the underground music media as well as innocent bystanders. Through an organic, blackened, thrashing hybrid of metal drawing influences from across the spectrum of extreme music, the band’s corrosive live attack was finally captured on record.

Recorded by Garret Morris (Windhand, Cough, Parasytic, Bastard Sapling) and mastered by Mikey Allred (Inter Arma, Hellbender, Across Tundras), Dark Path is a coarse, diverse display of the band’s terrorizing spirit; a ravenous force that has guided the group through countless shows, relentless demo recordings, and over five years of sheer sacrifice.

Stream all of Dark Path AT THIS LOCATION.

Critical Praise:

“…a ripping blend of crust and proto-black metal riffs that boil from a vast melting pot of extremity; their truly diverse extreme sound also brings with it the incessant need to thrash.” – Terrorizer


“…like bong ripping yourself into a black hole where the other side is the embodiment of Mob Rules era Sabbath with the addition of some major Mega Man shred duals.” – Mxdwn

Fans of Denver Thrashers HAVOK are beginning to feel the growing excitement for the approaching North American release date of the band’s third full-length, Unnatural Selection. The album’s lead single, “Give Me Liberty… Or Give Me Death,” impacted metal radio earlier this week; the only single to land on CMJ’s Loud Rock “Most Added” report. Sirius/XM Radio plus Syracuse’s WAQX, Baltimore’s WIYY, and Northern New Jersey metal powerhouse WSOU, among others, are a few of the key early supporters of the single.

To celebrate, Candlelight Records today makes Give Me Liberty…Or Give Me Death available as a FREE download at the label’s official Bandcamp page. The topical thrash anthem delivers the young band’s classic thrash and old-school metal sound.

Currently touring Europe with Suffocation and Cephalic CarnageHAVOK will kick off North American touring just after the June 25 release of Unnatural Selection. Set to begin July 22, the headlining tour will see the four-piece journey through the southern states, travelling up the eastern seaboard before making their debut performance at Montreal’s annual Heavy MTL festival on August 11.

NUCLEAR “Apátrida” EP – Thrash Metal Defenders From The Republic Of Chile = Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, thrash metal albums, thrash metal bands with tags , , , , , on April 25, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

NUCLEAR-Band - promo pic_2012

NUCLEAR Are: Sebastian Puente (Guitars), Matias Leonicio (Vocals), Eugenio Sudy (Drums), Roberto Soto (Bass) and Francisco Haussmann (Guitars).


NUCLEAR Apátrida – If you’re a loyal old school Thrasher or just addicted to Thrash Metal that’s potent enough to set off the Richter Magnitude Scale, then NUCLEAR is a Thrash Metal band that you need to have your ears, brain and entire nervous system acquainted with.

NUCLEAR are from the grand Republic Of Chile and formed their Thrash Metal pack back in 2003. With 4 studio and 2 live albums to their Metal credit, NUCLEAR has the Thrashing credentials in their songwriting, musicianship, vocals and old school attitude; just a couple of listens to Apátrida and any Thrash Metal aficionado shall agree!

Originality can sometimes be difficult to achieve within the Thrash Metal genre; with so many legendary bands having already “done that”, only NUCLEAR brings a unique style to the Thrash masses and I’m very, very impressed. Not as extreme as the iconic Slayer and not as over produced as the legendary Metallica’s post Master Of Puppets catalog, NUCLEAR follows more in line with an old school Anthrax meets old school Exodus (with Megadeth in-between).

Not afraid to approach politics as a lyrical theme, NUCLEAR gets their point across with blazing sonic beats and a dual guitar attack that has my neck begging for mercy after each listen to Apátrida. Wether NUCLEAR’s vocalist Matias Leonicio sings in English or Spanish, the Metal point is made very clear: there is credible passion in his voice and Thrash Metal is a universal language all its own.

Get into NUCLEAR and allow this rising giant of a Thrash band to kick your ass. NUCLEAR has arrived my fellow Metal brethren! Metal be thy name.

NUCLEAR-Apatrida-Promo - Front-Cover

Apátrida – Track Listing:

My Own Anarcy

Breathing Despair

Architects Of War

Chaos Is My Life



Click here and listen to the NEW song from NUCLEAR: INNER HATE


NUCLEAR has shared the stage with the following Thrash Metal legends: Testament, Destruction, Voivod, Joey Belladonna, Forbidden, Hirax, Toxic Holocaust and with Black Metal warriors such as 1349.


Check out this current tour flyer below! NUCLEAR will be supporting the also legendary Annihilator during their South American Annihilation Tour 2013! Whoa!
