Tides of Man – Everything is Fine, Everyone is Happy

Tampa, Florida based instrumental post-rock outfit, Tides of Man, returned today with “Everything Is Fine, Everyone Is Happy” – revealing a darker edge to contrast their more ethereal first single “Static Hymn” that premiered earlier this month with New Noise Magazine. “Everything Is Fine, Everyone Is Happy” is anchored by driving percussion and ominous synths that paint an almost sinister soundscape for the guitars and bass to explore. The result is an intense composition that exudes energy and inspires the listener to be strong in pushing through whatever barriers they are facing in their life. These first two singles from… Continue reading

GRAVE DIGGER – Fear Of The Living Dead

 German heavy metal legends GRAVE DIGGER recently announced the title and track list of their new studio album. Now the band reveals the first single “Fear Of The Living Dead” and its lyric video. Chris Boltendahl on the song: “Here it is: the new Grave Digger lyric video. Normally we don`t like lyric videos so much – but this one reproduces the atmosphere of the song very well and it’s scary, weird and tough. The song is the first track we have written for the new album and this song contains all trademarks of Grave Digger – and much more: it’s fast, epic and… Continue reading

HATE – Path To Arkhen

Metal Blade is proud to announce the signing of HATE, the glorious Death/Black Metal force hailing from Warsaw, Poland. HATE have been praised by press and fans alike for years for creating lacerating and dark music, proven best on their current album ‘Tremendum’ (2017). The album saw ATF Sinner (vocals, guitars) utilize the dark aspects of the mystic and arcane Slavonic folklore to explore themes both personal and impersonal. It is an album that is relatable at first listen, but that is hard to fully know. In 2018, we find HATE as ever, advancing. In preparation for what might be… Continue reading

Year of the Cobra – The Siege

It is with great honor that Prophecy Productions announces the signing of Seattle’s heavyweight stoner doom duo, Year of the Cobra. Formed in 2015, Year of the Cobra became a rapidly ascending, radiant star in the horizon of the doom/stoner-scene for a reason: This powerhouse duo, consisting of Amy Tung Barrysmith (vocals/ bass) and Jon Barrysmith (drums), use their limitation in instrumentation to their advantage. Leaving space for every instrument to breathe and to shine, they create a vast, larger than life sound aesthetic. Their songs drift relentlessly from classic epic doom laments into oppressive heavy riff architecture; from catchy, almost upbeat rock… Continue reading

Dee Snider – “For The Love Of Metal”

Dee Snider – “For The Love Of Metal” (Napalm Records)  Dee Snider – up for a challenge!?!? Definitely one of the 80s greatest front men and one of metal’s motormouths, Snider called it quits in 2016 after completing a farewell 40th-anniversary tour with legends Twisted Sister. Or so he thought. Seems that Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta, a long time admirer of Snider, didn’t think it was time for Dee to retire his unmistakable voice and sold Snider a wild idea to record this album with a younger generation of contemporary artists. And we’re not talking the up and coming talent pool… Continue reading
