CIMS Headbanger's Wall
While so many of their contemporaries cranked out disposable albums with forgettable repetitiveness, in an effort to meet the demands of the music industry, MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE entered into a willful creative hibernation instead. Like a creature that spins itself a cocoon to evolve into something bigger and bolder, MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE emerge with their eOne Music debut, Vicious World, stronger and reenergized like never before. Vicious World is equally energetic, driving, dramatic, and cinematic. Each song takes listeners on a moving journey from start to finish, with special care and attention to structure and meaning. Songs like “God of Nothing” and “The Endless” from their previous self-titled album were but the tip of the artistic iceberg, setting MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE toward the darker and more ambitious path that culminated with album four. The core duo of founding vocalist Matthew Hasting and longtime guitarist/songwriter Robert Bloomfield, who appear together on every MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE album, now usher in a brand new era of the band forged in ambitious artistry and deliberate focus. They’ve combined elements of extreme metal and the punk-and-pop-infused mash-ups present on the Warped Tour and Mayhem stages with their own signature flavor, a product of their disparate geographical locations, unique background, and point of view.
After nearly a decade away, No Warning return with Torture Culture , a third album that is as scrappy, self-assured, and unrelenting as it was once unthinkably improbable. No Warning is confrontational, uncompromising, and unapologetic, like the best in hardcore, metal, crossover, and thrash before them, all of which are elements that find their way into their too short but massively important discography. The new album is grimy, pulverizing, and antagonistic street punk in a mind-meld with menacing metalcore, comprised of towering riffage, blistering solos, and raw vocals. No Warning don’t so much as borrow hooks from the past as they’ve studied the very essence of what’s come before, from Bay Area thrash metal to New York Hardcore, from post-grunge melody to melancholy balladry and back again, all through their own lens of discontent, simmering on compliance and stark rage.
Revered as one of the groups that pioneered the aggressive and abrasive mixture of death metal and hardcore that permeates the modern heavy music landscape, the South Carolina-based THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD triumphantly return with "Disomus," the group's long-awaited fourth full-length. • The True Godfathers of Deathcore • Featuring vocal cameos from original singer Anthony Gunnels and Nate Johnson • Have toured with As I Lay Dying, Despised Icon, Whitechapel, All That Remains • Limited Edition Vinyl w/ Download Card, 180gram and double gatefold. • The band has sold over 50,000 in catalog
Sometimes when band members reunite, it's as if no time has passed and nothing has changed. That couldn't be further from the truth for 10 Years. And, that's a good thing. When guitarist/drummer Brian Vodinh and guitarist Matt Wantland returned to the Knoxville, Tennessee alt-metal/post-grunge band for their eighth album and Mascot Records debut, (how to live) AS GHOSTS, they burst through their comfort zones to create something new. Something better. Something career-defining. The 8th release is the most dynamic and multi-dimensional record to date from Knoxville's alternative rock band. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Korn, Deftones, Mastodon, Alice In Chains).
Recorded with producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira) at Santa Ana, California's Hybrid Studios, THE SIN AND THE SENTENCE finds Trivium - Matt Heafy (lead vocals, lead guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar, vocals), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Alex Bent (drums) - returning with their first new music since their celebrated 2015 LP, SILENCE IN THE SNOW. The new LP also features the band's first recordings with new drummer Bent who joined the band last year.
