Metalcore quartet, Voids has released their second single titled, "Invidia", off the upcoming debut full-length, No Character : No Crown. The new record is set to release next Friday on October 13th, with pre-orders now available on all digital music retailers.
"We're happy to present the second single off of our debut full length 'No Character : No Crown', titled 'Invidia'. We all struggle throughout our lives, some are able to brush it off and keep moving while others are left in the dark waiting for a turn of events to take place," says vocalist, Chad Yockel. "I've never been one to get over things easily and I've always been envious of the ones who get over everything thrown at them like a flip of a switch. This song goes out to everyone struggling, whether you take longer than others or not, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel."
Pre-order No Character : No Crown and hear the new single below.
The core of Voids was originally formed in fall of 2012, as a band called From Far Away. As a group they have shared the stage with numerous national acts such as This Or The Apocalypse, I the Breather, Becoming the Archetype , Onward To Olympus, Fathoms, A Hero A Fake, One Year Later, When The Ocean Meets The Sky, and My Ticket Home. They have played in numerous states and multiple tours, debuting their EP, Recover | Repeat.
In addition to releasing three singles, building a local fan base, and signing to At Your Command Records; they decided to part ways with the name due to member changes and wanting a fresh start with a different outlook. Which lead them to announce the new name, Voids.
Formed in late 2015, Voids is a four-piece metalcore band from Hagerstown, Maryland. Our message as a band revolves around the addictions that affect the lives of many in a negative way. We want people to turn towards our music as a healthy way to cope with the problems they are having with their lives; rather than ones that can destroy someone's personal life and the ones around them...

Turkish metallers Pitch Black Process (aka PBP) released their debut album “One Reality” in 2003, and now, nearly 15 years later, the band's first ever official video "I Hate You", taken from the debut album, gets today its premiering online.
Watch "I hate You" here: https://youtu.be/Qd4x6PdTeYo
Comments the band:
"Here it is; our very first official video, “I Hate You”, which is taken from our debut album “One Reality” released in 2003. Some very old vaults opened and the video has surfaced for the first time in almost 15 years since the release of the album. It is more than ten years since even we last saw it. So, we hope you will enjoy it!"
Pitch Black Process frontman Emrah Demirel adds:
"It may seem strange that we have unleashed this old video now, but even though the sound is not so good, the music is not so "original" and the production isn't good either, but we wanted to post this video anyway. Lets call it "the progress of these last 15 years"! This is what we were and where we came from."

Pitch Black Process (formerly known as Affliction) was formed in 1999. Their first two albums “One Reality” (out in May 2003) and “Execution is Necessary” (released in July 2007) got very good response nationwide and also from abroad. In November 2009 they hit the road for their first European tour playing over 20 gigs (being the longest tour which any Turkish band had ever made abroad until then), followed up by the 18-shows European tour with Warbringrt, in February 2010.
Before the tour with Warbringer, Pitch Black Process signed a sponsorship deal with one of the most well-known guitar companies in the world, PRS, which was another ‘debut’ for Turkey. None of any Turkish bands had signed a sponsorship agreement with such a big brand in music industry. The 3rd album “Hand of God?” was produced by Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork, etc) at Dugout Studios, came out in June 2013.
In September 2013, Pitch Black Process played on main stage at the 82nd Izmir International Fair, being the first ever metal band to play on the fair’s history. In 2015, Pitch Black Process became part of EVH and Fender. In November 2015 the band returned to Dugout Studios to record their 4th album, “Derin” which was released in December 2016, in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim / EMP Label Group and on Ellefson Music Productions / SPV in Europe.

Finnish metalcore act Disclarity has released a new single "Ghosts". The band just returned from it's two weeks and 12 shows tour from central Europe. And what would be better time to release some fresh material?
Band comments the new single:
"The single Ghosts differs from Disclaritys earlier production with its faster tempo and cruel and oppressive atmosphere. Lyrics dive into human addictions, self-deception and disappointment. From these ruins rises up almost popish/mainstream atmosphere of the chorus.
Already when making the demo of this song, we had a feeling that this single was going to be something very different. And so it happened, the song became a turbocharged epic masterpiece! Si'l vous plaît!"
Asking Alexandria have released a video for the new single “Into The Fire” (watch above). The track, which will appear on the band’s as-of-yet untitled fifth album (Dec. 15, Sumerian Records) marks the first new music to come from the band since they reunited with singer Danny Worsnop.
“This is an incredibly exciting period in Asking Alexandria’s career. We have been through hell and back again,” explains singer/guitar player Ben Bruce. “It’s been an insanely long road but we couldn’t be more excited that it has brought us to where we are now. We have been given a new lease on life. As individuals, this is the happiest we have been in a very long time.”
The song, and accompanying video, arrives following the U.S. debut via SiriusXM Octane.
Asking Alexandria spent the summer recording the new album, with From First To Last’s Matt Good (Memphis May Fire, Upon a Burning Body) and mixer Taylor Larson (Periphery). The album’s title and cover art will be revealed soon.

Nuclear Blast Entertainment is pleased to announce the signing of Canadian newcomers, Arrival Of Autumn. "We are incredibly excited to be signed with Nuclear Blast Entertainment," states the band. "To work with a team that has not only been a leader in the industry, but has helped develop and give the world so many bands that are extremely important to us as musicians, is an absolute honour."
Thee band has released a demo version of a song from their upcoming album. Check out the song produced and mixed by Jason Suecof on Spotify or YouTube HERE.
Arrival Of Autumn started as a band with a mission to play music without compromise and carve their way through the music scene on their own terms. Coming from a small city in Northern Canada, this was a necessary strategy, since the band didn't come up in a big city scene with regular promoters, venues and attendees.
After touring in support of two self-released albums, 'Endless Nights' and 'Shadows', the band began plotting their next release. On a whim they decided to send some of the new demos to one of their heroes, Jason Suecof at Audiohammer Studios, to see if he would be interested in recording them. To the band’s absolute surprise, Jason liked what he heard and found time between some of the heavy-hitters that he had been working on, to record the material. This was an opportunity the band couldn't pass up, and immediately started planning the trip of flying over 3000 miles, from one end of the continent of North America to the other, to record the best songs the band had ever written.
Fast forward to after two successful recording sessions produced by Jason Suecof and mastered by Mark Lewis, the band was able to attract the attention of A&R legend Monte Conner. Conner was impressed with what he heard and quickly struck a deal with the band. With such a rapid ascent thus far, there's no telling what great things lurk in Arrival Of Autumn's not too distant future. Keep an eye out for news on the band's label debut sometime in early 2018.
Arrival Of Autumn is:
Jamison Friesen | vocals, rhythm guitar
Brendan Anderson | lead guitar
Kevin Student | bass
Ty Fox | drums

Pitch Black Process, formerly known as Affliction, was initially formed in 1999. Their first two albums “One Reality” (out in May 2003) and “Execution is Necessary” (released in July 2007) got very good response nationwide and also from abroad. In November 2009 they hit the road for their first European tour playing over 20 gigs (being the longest tour which any Turkish band had ever made abroad until then), followed up by the 18-shows European tour with Varbringer, in February 2010. Before the tour with Warbringer, Pitch Black Process (back then still "Affliction") signed a sponsorship deal with one of the most well-known guitar companies in the world, PRS, which was another ‘debut’ for Turkey. None of any Turkish bands had signed a sponsorship agreement with such a big brand in music industry.
Due to some misleading information in the cyber world and abroad, Affliction made a hard decision and they changed the name of the band after 12 years and they decided to move forward as Pitch Black Process. In January 2011 the band went to Sweden to record their 3rd album, with the well-known producer Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork, etc) at Dugout Studios, but due some unexpected delays the album came out finally in June 2013. In September 2013, Pitch Black Process played on main stage at the 82nd Izmir International Fair, being the first ever metal band to play on the fair’s history. In 2015, Pitch Black Process became part of EVH and Fender. In November 2015 the band returned to Dugout Studios to record their 4th album. After 4 weeks of production “Derin” was completed as a result of amazing chemistry between the band and Bergstrand. The album, with 2 old and well-known Turkish song covers and 3 English-Turkish mixed songs, is a very special album for Pitch Black Process. "Derin" was released in December 2016, in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim/EMP Label Group and on Ellefson Music Productions/SPV in Europe.
Pitch Black Process is:
Emrah Demirel – Guitars/Vocals
Kerem Inci – Guitars
Fikri Yargici – Drums
Emre Demirel – Bass

Alaska's 36 Crazyfists will release their deeply personal new album Lanterns on September 29 through Spinefarm Records. It is their second release for the label and the follow up to 2014's Time and Trauma.
Music often functions as that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel and provides shelter during any storm and calm in the middle of tumult. 36 Crazyfists understand this phenomenon first-hand. In fact, the Anchorage quartet—Brock Lindow [vocals], Steve Holt [guitar], Mick Whitney [bass], and Kyle Baltus [drums]—find catharsis within chaos on their aptly titled seventh full-length.
The band has shared the first track from the record in the form of "Death Eater." Listen to the song here.
About releasing "Death Eater" into the wild, Lindow said, "It's a reflection of self and the dwellings of rock bottom, discovering the tools to dig yourself out, and refusing to let yourself free fall into the abyss of hopelessness. Love, forgive, and never give in. In fact, Lanterns is about the fight within us all... forever refusing to sink."
Light The Torch is a burgeoning new force within the hard rock/metal community who just inked a new world-wide deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The group, formerly known as Devil You Know, features the iconic Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage) on vocals, Francesco Artusato (ex-All Shall Perish) on guitars and Ryan Wombacher (ex-Bleeding Through) on bass. The new full-length album is currently in the mixing stages and showcases the band in an all new light, as Jones delivers the most poignant performance of his storied career. With no more song-writing restrictions, the band are reaching greater heights trying out a plethora of new ideas, which you will all hear in the coming months.
Light The Torch will absolutely continue to perform Devil You Know songs and as the band state below, the only way the group could legally continue to perform as band would be under this course of action.
Light The Torchstates: “After member issues and legalities continued for a year with no end in sight, we collectively felt it was time to put DYK to rest. Every effort was made to avoid this decision, but it needed/had to be done for the sake of moving forward. We will be forever grateful to those of you who shared that journey with us. With that said, we decided that this was a perfect time to write and record something truly different, something that reflected what we have been through and what we have become. Our new album is almost done being mixed, and there will be many more details coming in the following days and weeks. We are Light The Torch. See you soon."
