US black metal icons ABIGAIL WILLIAMS reveal more of their anticipated fifth record, Walk Beyond the Dark, with new single 'Ever So Bold'.

Premiered via Kerrang!, listen and watch 'Ever So Bold' here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjy7Xd-mNYw

Black sheep of the Black Metal scene. Outcasts and outsiders since the very beginning. Somehow, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS are still alive, still thriving, still creating, whilst so many of their critics and competitors have fallen by the wayside.

The band return with their boldest and most diverse offering to date: their fifth record, Walk Beyond the Dark, to be released 15th November via Blood Music.

Pre-order the record here: https://www.blood-music.com/store

Equal parts introspection and extremity, Walk Beyond the Dark is a testament to the band’s journey across the years; all the miles they’ve travelled, all the trials endured, all the mud thrown at them, all to keep doing what they love, on their own terms and without compromise.

Throughout all of these storms and tribulations remains band leader and songwriter, vocalist, and mastermind Ken Sorceron. In so many ways, Sorceron himself is ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, its heart, mind, and spirit. Deftly wielding the forces of light and dark in skilled measure. Icy guitars and bleak atmospheres encircle. Rapturous bursts of string accompaniments penetrate the melancholic futility of shadow and despair. Powerful guitars shift between slithering rhythms, contemplative grooves, and all-out assaults.

Songs like visceral opener 'I Will Depart' and the torrential 'Into the Sleep' take aspects and elements from each of the band’s previous iterations – the gleaming metallic riff-work of In The Shadow of a Thousand Suns, the seething rage of In The Absence of Light, the grim grandeur of Becoming, the moody melodic menace of The Accuser – and weave them together into something that’s far more than the mere sum of its parts.

ENTERPRISE EARTH release 'We Are Immortal' music video

ENTERPRISE EARTH release 'We Are Immortal' music video

ENTERPRISE EARTH have released a new music video today for 'We Are Immortal'. Directed by Burke Cullinane, this is the fourth music video the band has released from their latest full length, Luciferous.

Watch and listen to 'We Are Immortal' here: https://youtu.be/OItwEgxxkUY

Vocalist Dan Watson comments, “Alone we’ll die in the fallout, but together We Are Immortal.”

The band had previously released three music videos, one for 'The Failsafe Fallacy', 'He Exists' and another for 'Sleep Is For The Dead', two of which went on to amass more than half a million views.

ENTERPRISE EARTH are in the middle of a lengthy U.S. tour alongside Rings Of Saturn through mid-November.

ENTERPRISE EARTH released Luciferous, their third LP on 5th April 2019, via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music. The band completed work on Luciferous over the previous summer with producer Jason Suecof (The Black Dahlia Murder, White Chapel, Job For A Cowboy, Carnifex).

Vocalist Dan Watson adds, "After following our natural progressions as musicians and as people Luciferous came to life. It’s our strongest, most mature release to date and signifies a rebirth while retaining all of the elements of our past. We’re extremely proud of this release and can’t wait to unleash it upon the world."

ENTERPRISE EARTH were founded in 2014 by ex-Infant Annihilator vocalist Dan Watson and ex-Takeover guitarist BJ Sampson. Taking their name from a confluence of Illuminati and other conspiracy theories, the band released their debut EP titled XXIII and a full length, Patient Ø, in 2015. Patient Ø featured Oceano vocalist Adam Warren and debuted at number five on Billboard's Heatseekers/Top New Artist Chart. Last year the band released Embodiment, their second LP and have since shared the stage with Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, and Winds of Plague with a highlighted appearance on the 2016 Summer Slaughter Tour.

UNEVEN STRUCTURE release new single 'Everyman' with music video shot at Euroblast Festival

UNEVEN STRUCTURE release new single 'Everyman' with music video shot at Euroblast Festival


French progressive metal pioneers UNEVEN STRUCTURE have released their final pre-release single 'Everyman' from the upcoming album Paragon, with a video recorded live this September at Euroblast Festival in Germany.

Watch 'Everyman' here: https://youtu.be/SYbDbiaTHUk

Paragon, the new full-length and successor of 2017's La Partition, is set to be released on 18th October 2019 as exclusive bundles, limited double vinyl, CD Digipack and digital via Long Branch Records.

Paragon is available for pre-order here: https://UnevenStructure.lnk.to/Paragon

Paragon crystallises an age of newfound maturity for UNEVEN STRUCTURE, a vision clearer than ever, showcasing a need to expose their genuine inner self. With rock solid foundations and a strongly curated team of devoted partners surrounding them, UNEVEN STRUCTURE's forthcoming opus is set to break boundaries and overcome any obstacles that might be thrown along the way, to bring this music to anyone that needs it in their lives.

Hailing from France, one of the biggest emerging markets and breeding stock for bands within the Metal and Progressive Rock scene, UNEVEN STRUCTURE formed in May 2008 from the willing of Benoit Friedrich and Igor Omodei to finally bring the technically enhanced and progressive music they had been working on for themselves, alive. The sound they were aiming to create was a one of a kind merger of groovy polyrhythmic guitar riffs with huge slick of ambient guitar leads, which with no doubt they accomplished.

In December 2009 they released their first EP with the help from singer Daniel Ädel (Vildhjarta). The EP has obtained great feedback through thousands of downloads through the span of a few days, already allowing the band’s name to spread on the internet in January 2010. Later that year, vocalist Matthieu Romarin joined the band, enriching their sound with his unique, both clean and heavy singing.

The band made their first live performances in Europe in 2010 and released the first album Februus in October 2011 via Basick Records, the British label leading the avant-garde and experimental metal market. After releasing Februus, acclaimed by press and audience unanimously, saluting the creativity and technicality, the band made multiple tours and festival appearances through Europe and Russia with Tech Metal and Prog Rock pioneers such as Protest The Hero, Textures, Animals as Leaders and Tesseract. In 2013 the French metallers released a re-recorded version of their debut EP 8, as a gift to their early fans for being supportive and believing in the project. From then the band continued to tour in multiple countries all across Europe from Portugal to Russia. Accounting more than 100 shows since the release of their first album and some highlight gigs performing at Brutal Assault, Euroblast Festival and a full European tour with Protest The Hero.

From 2013 onward, UNEVEN STRUCTURE worked on the follower ofFebruus. This next step, a full concept album called La Partition, released on April 21st 2017 under the guidance of their new label, Long Branch Records. WithinLa Partitionyou can hear and feel the progress the band made sinceFebruus, their sound now being even more complex and perfectly arranged, catchy and experimental. A perfect combination of the hardness of metal with the elaborate techniques of prog and the atmospheric sounds of ambient.

Following this new chapter, UNEVEN STRUCTURE came back touring Europe, playing over 70 shows in 2017 supporting Textures, Twelve Foot Ninja, as a headliner and making several festival appearances such as Resurrection Festival. But instead of pushing the heavy touring schedule any further, they decided to use such a dense amount of learnt lessons and gained wisdom to clear the table, getting right back into the studio to write their newest album, soberly named Paragon, scheduled to be introduced to the world on 18th October 2019, under Long Branch Records. This album crystallises an age of newfound maturity, a vision  clearer than ever, and the need for Uneven Structure to expose its genuine inner self. With rock solid foundations and an iron handedly curated team of devoted partners surrounding the entity, this upcoming opus is set to break the boundaries and overcome any obstacles that might be thrown on the way, only to be brought to everyone that needs this music in their lives.

RISING INSANE release video for new single 'Last Fragments'

RISING INSANE release video for new single 'Last Fragments'

shot 1.jpg

RISING INSANE have released a video for their latest single 'Last Fragments'. The track is the second from their forthcoming album Porcelain, which is due for release on 1st November via Long Branch Records.

Check out the video for 'Last Fragments' here: https://youtu.be/0Hjrqy1JKfk

'Last Fragments', and the album Porcelain, are about vocalist Aaron Steineker dealing with grief. After losing his sister to cancer in the summer of 2018, Steineker and his family had to learn to live with their loss, holding onto memories and those close to them.

RISING INSANE deliver a mixture of brutality and fragile sensibility, and the result is an authentic song that Steineker hopes will help others dealing with loss.

Porcelain is available to pre-order in various formats here: https://risinginsane.lnk.to/Porcelain

RISING INSANE deliver music in a dualistic manner: post-hardcore inspired rage is coupled with melancholic overtones, creating a sound that is irresistible to fans of melodic and aggressive modern metal.

A band with hardworking DIY roots, RISING INSANE released debut album Nation in June 2017 which quickly earned them shows with the likes of The Devil Wears Prada, For Today, Stray from the Path and more. The DIY struggle further inspired the band and fuelled their determination, which paid off with them earning a German and Austrian tour with Annisokay at the end of 2018 and a slot at Impericon Festival 2019.

Strengthened by the energy of this ride, they produced and recorded their second album, Porcelain, set for a November 2019 release Via Long Branch Records. Still inspired by self initiative and DIY work ethic, with Porcelain comes the most honest, inspiring and haunting music RISING INSANE have ever written.

Öxxö Xööx announce album details and release single/video via Blood Music

Öxxö Xööx announce album details and release single/video via Blood Music

Öxxö Xööx photo by Twenty_Cent_Light 8 small.jpg

Öxxö Xööx, the unique French avant-garde/ experimental doom metal unit, return with another dizzying masterwork in the labyrinthine, Ÿ, which will be released on 29th November via Blood Music.

Pre-order the record here: https://www.blood-music.com/store

Öxxö Xööx have also shared the first new track and video from the record. First premiered via Metal Sucks, listen and watch 'Lëïth Säë' here: https://youtu.be/ENbwZgycPo4

Featuring the songwriting, instrumentation and vocals of the titular Öxxö Xööx (Laurent Lunoir, ex-Whourkr), the operatic treasure Rïcïnn [Laure Le Prunenec of Corpo-Mente and Igorrr], and live drummer Isarnos (Thomas Jacquelin), Ÿ also sees guest synth guitar processing by cyber metal star Master Boot Record.

Ÿ opens with the solemn dirge of what sounds like a funeral. Dripping with beauty and melancholic doom, it gives way to bell-like organs before plodding drums build to a gothic assault. The album continues to shift rapidly from gorgeous, haunting laments to utter desperation and unhinged mania as the 78 minute journey spirals deeper and deeper into the maze of its own machinations and enigmas.

Laurent comments, "Ÿ is a very symbolic album. There are several meanings regarding its name: First of all, the umlauts symbolise the duality of our material universe. Ÿ is a two-headed "I", having two directions. It's the symbol of the choice between the path of light and the path of darkness, between vice and virtue. By its tree-like shape, it reflects human growth, whose branches rise to heavens. Ÿ symbolises the three-dimensional space (the orthonormal coordinate system x, y, z). It also depicts the corner of a cube (symbol of the earth, the stability, the hardness of the material world). "Y" can also depict the bifid tongue of the snake; the crossroad; the "Y" generation; the simplified shape of the female internal genital tract, as well as the Y chromosome in the male; the Christ (Y) on the cross (T).”

The brainchild of Laurent Lunoir, Öxxö Xööx acts as a personal artistic project outside of Igorrr where he can realise his dreams entirely unrestricted. In doing so, he attempts to raise his “being”; a kind of inner "holy war" to find what religions call "God" (and which he refers to as “Light”) in a personal way, without adhering to any religious practice. This expresses what he feels toward the material reality in which we must live. To achieve this he enlisted the help of artists who share a similar creative outlook, those whom Laurent feels a “connection” to the Light, such as Rïcïnn (Laure Le Prunenec) and Isarnos (Thomas Jacquelin). The possibility remains open for other collaborations in the future which will allow the Öxxö Xööx universe to grow even further.

Ÿ comes out on 29th November via Blood Music and can be pre-ordered here.

ITHACA announce tour supporting Jamie Lenman

ITHACA announce tour supporting Jamie Lenman

ithaca HIgh Res@bengibsonphoto-19586resize.jpg

The UK's most ferocious metallic hardcore newcomers, ITHACA, have announced their support tour with UK rock icon Jamie Lenman.

The tour supports ITHACA's lauded debut LP The Language of Injury (1st February, Holy Roar Records) and follows shows with Anaal Nathrakh, Bleeding Through, and at Boomtown Fair and ArcTanGent festival.

ITHACA will support on the following dates:

18/11 Brighton Patterns
19/11 Norwich Waterfront
20/11 Gloucester Guildhall
24/11 Edinburgh Caves
25/11 Newcastle Cluny
26/11 Manchester Deaf Institute

ITHACA's acclaimed debut full-length The Language of Injury received support from Pitchfork, BBC R1, Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Revolver, Decibel magazines and more, fast becoming the most exciting new band in UK heavy music in 2019.

Champions of diversity, equal representation, anti-fascism and anti-sexism, ITHACA are providing a vital new voice in hardcore, a voice heard at Boomtown Fair and ArcTanGent festivals this summer, and which decimated their sold-out album release show at London's The Old Blue Last.

Order The Language of Injury: smarturl.it/ITHACA

Formed out of a mutual love of metallic hardcore but despair at its lack of ambition, ITHACA draw influence from everything from Southern doom to 90's math rock, as well as the untethered savagery of early Poison The Well and melodious battery of Oathbreaker.

The result is crushing grooves and shrieking guitar squalls that give way to haunting melodic passages and desolate reprieves. The debut album will be the band's most ambitious and emotionally raw material to date, following from their 2015 Trespassers EP (COF Records/Soaked in Torment).

ITHACA have previously toured with Employed to Serve, Venom Prison, and Renounced.
