Desert Thrashers SCARS OF ATROPHY Kick The Mosh Pit Wide Open w/ New Music Video “Nations Divide”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 20, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Tucson, AZ thrashers Scars of Atrophy, formerly known in the 80s as Atrophy on Roadrunner Records, rebranded their lineup in 2020 and recently unleashed their return to the mosh pit with the new EP “Nations Divide” in June 2022, 30-plus years after the release of their last full-length 1990’s “Violent By Nature”. The band approached this comeback EP as both the entertainers and the audience. They love the thrash metal genre and for them, there is nothing better than watching a huge mosh pit break out while playing on stage.

The EP has also garnered praise with comments such as “honestly this EP is easily the winner for the best thrash metal material in 2022” – Encomium Zine and “Breakneck speed and crushing mid-tempo are balanced, so that fans of EXODUS, VIO-LENCE and TESTAMENT definitely get their money’s worth.” – Twilight Mag.

Closing the chapter for their breakthrough return that saw them touring the country and sharing the stage with bands such as Exhorder, W.O.R. plus a performance on Dimestock (Watertown, WI), Scars of Atrophy is sharing with fans their latest music video for the “Nations Divide” title track, which features clips from this year’s shows and insane mosh pits.

Watch the video via its premiere on Metal-Rules HERE.

Track Listing:
1. Cross Contamination – 3:44
2. DSM-6 – 4:05
3. Smoke Screen – 3:55
4. Nations Divide –3:24
EP Length 15:08

Scars of Atrophy are currently working on their follow-up record for 2023, the band comments:

Our yet-to-be-titled forthcoming album still needs tweaking and a hint of flavoring here and there and will be a greater representation of our EP ‘Nations Divide”. All songs on the EP will be on the album as well. Musically, the songs are all hard-hitting with our signature tempo and riffage. Definitely an aggressive approach with the thunderous double bass of veteran thrash drummer, Tim Kelly. The album will also have new tracks, Purge, Burn the Veil, and A Trophy Kill, which are currently being played live.”

Scars of Atrophy is recommended for fans of Testament, Exodus, and Slayer.

The EP “Nations Divide” was released on June 22, 2022, and is available on Scarsofatrophy.com/merch, Spotify, Apple Music

INCITE’s latest full-length, Wake Up Dead, was released in April via Atomic Fire Records. With Wake Up Dead, INCITE jettisons the extraneous bloat of slicker bands in favor of authentic grit and determination, consistently churning out “headbanging riffs with concussive force (Kerrang).” Ghost Cult champions, “a massively enjoyable collection of aggression from a band led by someone who has literally lived and breathed metal since the day he was born,” while Dead Rhetoric observes, “Consistent road warriors that they are, INCITE brings another platter to the table that should have no trouble adding more staples to the setlist – ensuring sweat infested hordes a glorious time.”

The very spirit and attitude of heavy music culture, courses through the veins of INCITE. Over the course of five albums — The Slaughter (2009), All Out War (2012), Up In Hell (2014), Oppression (2016), and Built To Destroy (2019) — the band has cemented their reputation as one of America’s leading groove armadas, heavily hitting home with their blend of old-school thrash majesty, frantic aggression, melody, and skill. Written over the course of several bouts of feverish inspiration throughout the pandemic, with recording duties again handled by legendary producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence, Everytime I Die), Wake Up Dead delivers in the most relentless way possible.

INCITE’s Wake Up Dead is available on CD, LP, and digitally. Find ordering options at THIS LOCATION.

Maryland Crossover Thrashers NINTH REALM To Release “A Fate Unbroken” In November

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Maryland-based Crossover Thrash Metal quintet NINTH REALM will release their debut full-length album A Fate Unbroken November 4 on Mercenary Press. The album is a perfect blend of of crossover thrash and traditional heavy metal that represents the band’s refined vision. “Plea to the Heavens,” the album’s first single, is streaming now at:

ninthrealmmd.bandcamp.com/track/plea-to-the-heavens

“Plea to the Heavens” is also streaming on Spotify.

A Fate Unbroken is a nine-track album that takes the influence of the widest range of heavy metal, 80s-toned thrash, death thrash, and hardcore that the decisive genres have to offer. Not only do the riffs, consistent guitar solos, and blackened vocals take the listener through a whirlwind of Slayer/Demolition Hammer era thrash metal, but the lyricism and quintessential raw fantasy style of their art and themes harken back to a Frank Frazetta/Ralph Bakshi age of pure Sword & Sorcery. A Fate Unbroken, for all intents and purposes, is a Maryland band’s attempt to bring a reunion of heavy metal and hardcore punk back to its raw, old-school roots.

Basing their lyricism and overall theme around the original fantasy realm of Tythorin, NINTH REALM delivers an electrifying synthesis of traditional heavy metal and hardcore punk for fans of both respective genres to enjoy.

Line-Up:

Joey Burke – Drums
Ben Hageage – Vocals
Jared Henry – Bass
Liam McMahon – Lead Guitar
Charles House – Rhythm Guitar

Pulling from a range of influences that span everything between blackened thrash to old-school death metal, the music of NINTH REALM rips and tears with a ferocity and cadence that perfectly encapsulates the epic scale and grisly atmosphere of grim-dark fantasy. Between the use of aggressive thrash d-beat and viscerally direct song structure of classic metal acts such as Celtic Frost, combined with the melodic riffage of classic bands like Testament/Mercyful Fate, and an added twist of Cro-Mags/Leewaystyle crossover, NINTH REALM wields what is perhaps one of the most poignant new sounds to emerge from the metal underground in recent memory.

FFO: Power Trip, Eternal Champion, High Command, Iron Age

Pre-Order: ninthrealmmd.bandcamp.com/album/a-fate-unbroken

Track Listing:

  1. Gates of Tythorin
  2. Plea to the Heavens
  3. Witches Choir
  4. Ondreis
  5. Evoke Thy Wrath
  6. Armageddon’s Howl
  7. Burning Wanderer
  8. Eternal Lance
  9. A Fate Unbroken

BIO: Sharing a bond for all things heavy metal and high fantasy, college classmates Joey Burke (drummer) and Liam McMahon (lead guitarist) joined forces in the fall of 2018, writing and practicing every week to produce the 2019 demo, Gates of Tythorin. Later adding Jared Henry (bassist) and Ben Hageage (vocalist) to the mix, Ninth Realm solidified their sound with their succeeding 2020 EP, All Hail Treachery. In 2022, to offer a glimpse at what is to come with their debut LP, Ninth Realm released Ondreis MMXXII, a promo tape featuring two songs that both share a track space on the debut full-length record.

10/1/2022 Whisky-A-Go-Go – West Hollywood, CA

MISFIRE will be touring in support of Sympathy For The Ignorant, their ferocious debut full-length released through MNRK Heavy earlier this year. Conjuring old-school flavored thrash metal devastation with the kind of bombastic firepower that could wake the dead, MISFIRE creates more of a racket than bands twice their size, unleashing song after song of unrelenting savagery. It’s music that could have arrived in the thrash golden age of 1986, when bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Dark Angel, and Sodom delivered crucial records. And yet MISFIRE is forward-thinking, injecting modern metal mastery into their brew for a potent and timeless sound.

Captured in a small studio and engineered by vocalist/bassist Sean Coogan, MISFIRE’s Sympathy For The Ignorant is free from click-tracks and other unnecessary frills, projecting the purity of what three musicians raised on Pantera and the Big 4 sound like in a room together. The record is heavy, brawny, and confident, filled with the kind of earworm thrash metal riffs that sends aspiring players to the guitar store.

Sympathy For The Ignorant is available on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. Find ordering options at THIS LOCATION.

View the band’s previously released videos for “Fractured” HERE, “Red Flag” HERE, and “War Of Mine” HERE.

TOXIK – Release New Single “Creating The Abyss” – Issue Accompanying Lyric Video

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Guitarist Josh Christian about the song: “This song takes on the concept of wage slavery by using a scene from the Kinross’ Paracatu gold mine in Brazil, one of the largest in the world. Slavery is alive and well, and we wear it around our necks and on our fingers everyday. A brutal syncopated riff adorned with polyphonic and angular harmonies and solos…Toxik strikes again!”

Watch the accompanying lyric video for the song on: https://youtu.be/sTr1qRnyQxo

Even after four steamy, liver-destroying, gut-stretching decades in the name of heavy metal, there’s no stopping the TANKARD beer crew. Just in time for the celebrations surrounding their fortieth birthday, TANKARD will release their new full-length, Pavlov’s Dawgs, on September 30th. The record marks the band’s remarkable eighteenth album as well as their debut for the new label, Reaper Entertainment.

In advance of the record’s release, today TANKARD reveals first single, “Beerbarians,” proving that even after so many years they’re far from being old hat.

Comments vocalist Gerre: “We’re stoked to release our first single ‘Beerbarians’ — TANKARD-typical humor wrapped in a hard-hitting thrash sound with catchy hooklines. Listening in is mandatory! In this sense: carry the fire!”

View TANKARD’s “Beerbarians” lyric video at THIS LOCATION.

“Beerbarians” is available on all streaming platforms. The matching artwork of the single was created by Cliff Knese.

The taps are polished, the Freibier is flowing, and TANKARD are finally back to what they do best five long years after their last studio album: Thrashing madly, drinking thirstily, and ever so cleverly intertwining metal, humor, and sarcastic social commentary into one big raucous ball of entertainment.

Pavlov’s Dawgs, which was recorded and produced at Gernhard Studio Troisdorf together with producer Martin Buchwalter, will be available on CD, vinyl in various color variants, limited earbook with previously unreleased pictures from the last forty years of TANKARD, and as a limited box set which includes two demos on cassette.

Now celebrating their 40th year, U.K Thrash legends Onslaught are one of the most ferocious, explosive and controversial Metal bands ever to come out of the UK. Releasing 3 now legendary albums in the 80’s (Power From Hell / The Force / In Search of Sanity) the band marked its path to become a major influence for many metal generations to follow.

Since reforming in 2005 the band have performed countless shows in no less than 70 different countries across the globe, earning themselves the reputation as one of the very best Live Acts in the metal scene today. Onslaught also have the enviable kudos of being the first International thrash band to perform in Vietnam and Lebanon respectively.

5 critically acclaimed albums were released between 2007 & 2015 – Killing Peace / Live Damnation / Sounds of Violence / VI / Live at the Slaughterhouse – with millions of streams between them. Onslaught have taken their sound to a whole new level of brutality with the release of the latest opus Generation Antichrist in August 2020. The album charted successfully in the USA, the UK, Europe and Asia.

Produced by Grammy award winning Engineer Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah / In Flames / Behemoth) Generation Antichrist gathered huge international acclaim, with many renowned rock and metal pundits declaring it the album of the year.

“We are excited to Induct British thrash metal pioneers Onslaught into the 2022 Metal Hall of Fame during their performance on stage at Maryland Deathfest,” says Metal Hall of Fame President/CEO Pat Gesualdo. “Thrash Metal is a crucial part of the entire spectrum of Heavy Metal, and also a huge foundation for the Metal Hall of Fame. We are very proud to have Onslaught represent this genre that we all love so much.”
