Rock tinged melodic metalcore / post hardcore Vancouverites This Gun For Hire will be unleashing their debut album 'Something A Little More Sinister' on March 31, 2017. The band has already released singles 'Infection', 'Good Evening Deacon' and 'Barn Burner', which guitarist Tyler Burns has a brand new play-through for at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyKZKJ7l1vg
This Gun For Here is also offering fans a FREE download of 'Barn Burner' exclusively on PureGrainAudio.com at http://puregrainaudio.com/audio/this-gun-for-hire-barn-burner-free-song-download
Plus you can watch their music video for 'Barn Burner' at https://youtu.be/UO1qbqi3I2Q
The band comments on the video:
“You ever been to one of those parties where you feel like you’re on top of the world? Well this isn’t one of those parties. Welcome to Barn Burner! Where the drinks aren’t free and the girls ain’t pretty. Get ready for a night full of hazards, disasters, and bastards where there’s no going home! Barn Burner is This Gun for Hire‘s party jam that doesn’t let up, even for a second. Delving into the Canadian atmosphere of bush and house parties. You better dust off those dancing shoes and buckle up for a wild… ish ride. Special thanks to Kris Hellstrom for creating another awesome video for us.”
This Gun For Hire recorded 'Something A Little More Sinister' with engineer and producer Roger Swan (K-OS, Battle Axe) to present their first clutch of original songs to showcase to the world. The twelve track release displays a keen awareness of pace and dynamics. Moving deftly from the seething chaos of the eponymous opener to the grandiose and melodic epic of "To The Fallen And The Faithful', and back again for the staccato grunt of 'Barn Burner' to finish the record, This Gun For Hire leave you in little doubt as to their capabilities.
'Something A Little More Sinister' will be available through iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.

The band commented:- "We're finally able to present you the video to 'Prometheus'! This song can be considered the centre-piece of our new album 'Gnosis' and tells the myths of mankind's creation, retrieving the fire of enlightenment and the Titan's punishment. We managed to put the same darkness in it that we put in the new songs, so turn up the volume to 11 and open your minds to the knowledge of the gods!"

Ireland’s hottest metal export, Dead Label have released their highly anticipated new video for ‘Pure Chaos”, ahead of the band's appearance at the UK’s Download Festival this coming June.
With a legacy that has already involved touring with some of the world's most exciting metal acts, across three continents - not forgetting an impressive amount of critical acclaim from a host of respectable media outlets, Dead Label have finally released their first new track since their highly acclaimed ‘Throne of Bones’ sophomore LP last June.
‘Pure Chaos’ sees Dead Label capture the essence of their live sound and enhancing it in a recorded environment. Check out the video in full here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2cOPduOaHo
The video for Pure Chaos is based around a religious cult leader, who, after forcefully expanding his congregation, gets his comeuppance. Directed and produced by Crooked Gentlemen, this marks the band's fourth music video to date. Drummer, Claire Percival commented on the video’s concept;
“We gave the Crooked Gentleman guys (Shaun Ryan and Jeff Doyle) the track and they came back to us very excited about this concept; to which they were inspired by after hearing the track. When they pitched it to us; we really loved the idea. It’s without a doubt the darkest video in terms of subject matter that we have created.”
With the last two years being of significant importance, due to their debut North American 40 date tour, (which saw them perform in 30 states), Dead Label gained significant international interest following a vast amount of European, UK and Irish dates, with the likes of Machine Head, Gojira, Fear Factory and Raging Speedhorn to name but a few. A slew of Summer shows followed with appearances at festivals such as, Bloodstock (UK), main stage billing Metal Days (Slovenia), Made of Metal and Aggressive Music Festival (Czech Republic) and Gothoom Open Air (Slovakia), eventually leading to the band’s ‘Hot New Band’ feature in Metal Hammer (December, 2016 issue) and their recently confirmed slot at this year’s UK Download Festival in June.
Dead Label have been tracking demos for the follow-up to Throne of Bones and plan to enter the studio later this year, following dates in Europe and further afield, with a prediction for 2018 release.
Catch Dead Label on Saturday, June 10th at the Dogtooth stage during this year's Download Festival. Stage times will be confirmed closer to the date.
Check out "A Should With A Must" in HD here
After releasing one gut punch of a Full-length on December, 2nd of 2016, our Boys in As A Conceit are here with a live recorded session of "A Should with A Must" from the debut full-length album titled "Frown Upon Us".
For fans of artists such as Architects and Northlane, these Progressive metallers administer a chilling dose of technicality laced with subtle melody, all the while without losing sight of the message these gents aim to deliver: anger, dismay but at the same time, a sliver of hope for the world we live in. And the timing for such feelings has never been more spot on. For any fan who enjoys technicality, ambiance and gut-wrenching vocals supported by a radical musical assault, or for anyone who's enjoyed the latest Architects albums, this is an album that should not be missed out on.
The band gives us more detail into this single and how everything came together:
"'A Should With A Must' is the last song off our last album 'Frown Upon Us'. This song is about our society in modern life; about being constantly pushed to be and to think what we are and what we think, day after day, in a never-ending brainwashing lead by mass media, governments and multinational corporations; about the personal struggle we all lead to not be defined by others and to find our own identities. We decided to film this live session because to us is one of the most fun and energizing songs to perform live, if not the most one, and because we think it encloses a meaningful message we should all regularly take some time to reflect upon."
Ebony Wall, Germany's finalist at the Wacken Metal Battle 2016, have teamed up with Stephan Dietrich (former Alpha Tiger) for their new song "Nightfall". For the exceptional singer, it is the first musical sign of life, two years after his departure at Alpha Tiger.
