Alpha Omega Management is excited to announce the signing of the Turkish metallers Pitch Black Process (aka PBP)! The band's latest effort, "Derin", was released in December 2016 in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim/EMP Label Group and on EMP Underground/SPV in Europe.
Comments the band:
"Stoked to announce that we just joined Alpha Omega’s family which is one of the best and fast growing management and booking firms of recent times. We are very excited to see what the future hold for us on this new journey with Alpha Omega’s great team. Stay tuned for the news \m/"
Alpha Omega Management adds:
"We are truly thrilled welcoming these great hard working guys in Pitch Black Process to our roster family! They've conquered their audience wherever they've played so far. With their right attitude, musical ingredients and tenacity, PBP are ready for bigger stages. Stay tuned for next announcements!"
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.

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."

Australia's Make Them Suffer have announced details of their new album Worlds Apart. The new record will be out on 28th July via Rise Records. It is available for pre-order here.
Ahead of the album's release, Make Them Suffer have dropped the new track "Fireworks." Watch the video here
"Worlds Apart represents a new era for Make Them Suffer," singer Sean Harmanis said. "We've taken risks in songwriting and production; this album is a reminder to ourselves that change and growth are good things. It's tough to say so early, but I think Worlds Apart is an album that will be in your stereo for quite some time."
North Wales Metalcore quintet Rosen Bridge are pleased to unveil their striking new video for single ‘Brand New’ here. Vocalist Antony Jones reveals of the track: “It is about appreciating what you have and being thankful for the people that support you. When you're in a negative spiral it's really hard to realise the little things that people may be doing to help you. Reflectively, it can make you feel better by being thankful and taking steps towards a positive mindset.” Shot at Manchester's Brunswick Mill studios with Matty Daley of Clearway Media, the visuals and energy change as the song gets heavier. The track is taken from their May sophomore release ‘Dreamcatcher’, available to stream here and for digital download via major platforms.
Rosen Bridge, completed by Eddie Edwards and Marcus Williams on Guitar, Rowan Jack on Drums and William Roberts on Bass duties, are named after a synonym for worm holes. As a somewhat tongue-in-cheek reference, they class themselves as ‘spiritually driven metal’, which ultimately boils down to wanting to spread a message of positivity, something often not found in heavy music. “Our music is heavily influenced by our experiences in battling mental health issues. We want to motivate people to talk to us and each other and share their own experiences. We want people to be inspired to move against their pain and be the best person that they can be. We have all had experiences with living through highs and lows and the music that has inspired us in these times is the music that motivates us to change for the better,” comments Jones.
Serving as the follow-up to debut ‘Entropy’, ‘Dreamcatcher’ saw the band set out with the aim of creating a record that would “make people feel great”. Laying down the release with John Mitchell at Outhouse Studios, the members slept in one van and commuted to the studio each day, ready to give it their all. The outcome is comparable to a blend of Issues, Volumes & Northlane, with the band explaining: “It tries to focus more on keeping a consistent groove, with the soulful vocal hooks from the first EP. It’s about overcoming obstacles and chasing what your goals are. Creating this record has essentially been a collective purge of emotions for us. It could have easily been a very dark record but the music & the experience of creating it with each other has been the positive driving force to help us find our feet and out of that negative space. We hope then that if it has achieved this for us, it can also be a catalyst of hope for other people.”

Australian metalcore quartet The Weight Of Silence has released their new rap cover from Big Boi's (Outkast) single "Shutterbugg" with a new music video.
Vocalist, Jacob Pedersen commented on why the band choose this cover saying, "We've been quite influenced by hip-hop whilst writing the the new record and we decided that, a classic hip-hop cover would be the perfect bridge or transition into the newer sound we're writing. We're very excited about the release of "Shutterbugg" but, what's to come soon after is what we're most excited for."
While the band proves their love for hip-hop, they also claim a new shift in their modern metalcore sound, incorporating a range of styles from hip-hop to deathcore, which hints at a new direction for their upcoming sophomore release.

Opera core metallers Elegy Of Madness are proud to announce that their video for the song “Apokalypsis” is out today via VEVO. The video, directed by Cesare Bignotti (Eves Vision) for Opera Core / Wormholedeath, will launch the band’s third album “New Era” with the following release dates:
Russian metalcore outfit Forget My Silence has released a new music video for the title track off their upcoming record, Fall To Rise. The new single produced by Cameron Mizell (Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis May Fire) brings out melodic but powerful riffs and shines on a mix of soulful yet heavy vocals.
"'Fall To Rise' is the main song from the album. The title holds the history of my life and our band. We are all working on ourselves to get better at what we do. Not always was everything perfect, we faced many fails and hard times, but they only made us stronger and actually made us better. 'Fall To Rise' is story of how people who step over, will fall against those who have already fell before and learned their mistakes, and by their turn they will rise again, only stronger, and they all keep the circle of falling and rising going. This song will be kind of the beginning of new chapters in our story." - Vocalist, Roma Sadygov
Forget My Silence is a post-hardcore/metalcore band from Saint-Petersburg, Russia formed in august 2011 by vocalist Roma Sadygov. Shortly after, the band released their first music video for the single "This is only the beginning," which has since reached nearly five million views on YouTube. In November 2013, they released their debut EP Lifeline and toured around Russia, gaining a passionate following of fans before releasing the the single “Not Perfect” in 2014. The following year the band released “Virtual Privacy” (produced by Cameron Mizell) from their upcoming debut full-length Fall to Rise.
"This album is a half-way stop between our early 'metal' stuff and more nu-metal sound we've dug into recently,” says guitarist Elia Solonnikov. “Simple, but powerful riffs, some harsh vocals, more soulful lyrics than Roma has ever written. If you liked Forget My Silence before, you won't be disappointed.”
