A Few Things to Check Out…
As summer looms, it must be a good time to release metal because it seems to be coming at us from all angles. Here is another group of music files, videos, and clips to take a listen to. This is a diverse grouping, so be prepared.
Pyramaze is about to release Disciples of the Sun on May 22nd. The title track below is their first video. They fall under the umbrella of melodic metal, but don’t let labels steer you in any particular direction. The music should do the talking.
World Gone hails from Florida and like few before them, have donned masks to either conceal their identity or add enticement. Interestingly, one of the members (Joe Bennett) used to be the guitarist for Cold. Needless to say, there is no Cold influence in World Gone…if there is, it’s well disguised. For fans of Nine Inch Nails, Static-X, Ministry, and Filter. Remember Filter? Whatever happened to them? Anyway, video coming shortly, but for now we have a Soundcloud file.
Half-Hearted has an EP coming out in June. Flying & Falling is their video to represent their newest work. They fall along the lines of Atreyu and similar bands that are a bit heavier as well. There are several different influences pouring into their sound. Below is what it all sounds like when it comes together.
There was once a time in my life where Between the Buried and Me existed and I was unaware. I have since been educated and my life is better for it. You may have seen this already, but if not, I feel it’s my duty to make you mindful. If you are not aware of Between the Buried and Me, do not just listen to one song and judge the band. They have way too much going on to be represented by one track. This is a good sign of things to come with their forthcoming album. Just follow the link…
For the old school classic thrasher, this is a re-release (25 Mar 15) of Scars by a Finnish band called Oppression. Think Annihilator and you get the essence of the band. It’s very raw, so for a guy like me it’s nostalgic.
