The Kennedy Veil released a new album on Unique Leader Records in January called ‘Trinity of Falsehood’ and it’s a stellar album in terms of catchiness, brutality and overall enjoyment. Their attack is similar to Aborted in how each instrument is doing one million things at once but maintain and overall headbanging groove through the album. Long story short, I dig the shit out of this.
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.
WARFATHER is streaming their entire debut album over at Revolver called “Orchestrating the Apocalypse“. Head on over there right now and press play! I pressed play and nothing happened. I seem to be getting no music at this time but I bet it’s AMAZING. Hey at least we can check out this sweet ass artwork!
I’ve been a long time fan of Chimaira, since 2003 in fact. They kickstarted a burn in my heart for faster, heavier music with incredible solos and great riffs. The music was magical, the lyrics were perfect and the overall feeling I got while listening to Chimaira back then was sublime.
Fallen Fate’s new album “Into The Black” is one I just listened to for review and here is an early opinion: It’s good and I like it. So I proudly would like to share this lyric video for their song off of that album, “Blackened Within”. Enjoy.
