Well I am randomly on YouTube checking out what is new and Nuclear Blast just dropped a full album stream on us out of nowhere. So without further delay…here is Suicide Silence’s new album “You Can’t Stop Me”!
‘You Can’t Stop Me’: Suicide Silence is of course moving right on with new vocalist Eddie Hermida and here is the result: a band whose writing process is almost exactly the same as what we heard (in terms of writing and tone) on ‘The Black Crown’. Well, that is the consensus on just the one song I’ve heard and that is not a bad thing. I liked The Black Crown. I have signed poster from the guys (yes, including Lucker) and I jammed that album so damn hard.
No intro, just scroll down and press play on everything.
Insomnium return next month with their new album Shadows Of The Dying Sun, due out April 28th in Europe and April 29th in North America via Century Media Records. For now though, we are allowed to enjoy one song and it’s quite a ‘Revelation”.
Unique Leader Records are on a roll this year as they prepare to roll out another fine album but this time from Beneath. You can view a new lyric video from the band called “Chalice” below. The new album, “The Barren Throne”, releases next month, adding to the fantastic list of releases launching in April and May.
Animals As Leaders – “Tooth and Claw”, new album drops in March!
Ophidius is just one of those bands whom I adore and I swear they get not enough attention. Incredible talent, beautiful musicianship and headbang inducing metal! Dragonborn axe master (I said axe) Peter Brown slays the song called “Glory of the Dead“, which is on their new EP “The Throat of the World” and is available for free download here. Enjoy the video and subscribe to their Youtube channel.
Týr, melodic metal heathens from the Faroe Islands, have released a power ballad music video today and it prompts the question: Are power ballads needed anymore? We all know these were a big hit in the 80′s when every single ‘bad boy’ band in existence had to show off their softer side with acoustic guitars and clean vocals about love, roses and other things that soaked the neon colored panties of the women who listened. Fast forward 25 years and we have Týr doing the same thing, even bringing a woman on board by the name of Liv Kristine (Leaves’ Eyes), and together they belt out a powerful duet. So is this still relevant and enjoyable in 2014? The answer is yes.
