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.

Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee is proud to unveil her new single, “Speak To Me” the end title theme from the forthcoming suspense/drama, Voice From The Stone. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke stars in the film alongside Marton Csokas, Caterina Murino, Remo Girone, Lisa Gastoni, and Edward Dring.
Directed by Eric Howell and scored by Michael Wandmacher, the haunting thriller set in 1950’s Tuscany is due July 24th. USA Today premiered the movie trailer on Tuesday, which can be viewed here. Listen to the track here: https://youtu.be/6Bqe6iPYIYQ
As a prelude, Lee shared an intro video to the track on her YouTube channel last April. Captured during the recording of the song at legendary Skywalker Ranch, the piece gives us a glimpse inside the process, with the gorgeous piano of “Speak To Me” as the backdrop. A few exclusive clips are also included, providing fans with a preview into the movie.
“Speak To Me” is available for download on ITunes, Amazon, and Google Play, and streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music Unlimited.
Lee has a message for her fans about the film and her creative process behind the song and its accompanying video:
“I'm very excited to share a new song which I was asked to create as the end title for the forthcoming film, Voice From The Stone, which stars the incredibly talented and captivating Emilia Clarke. The song is called "Speak To Me.”
“There are many reasons why I felt inspired to work on this project. Voice From The Stone tells the haunting story of Verena, a nurse who is asked to aid a young boy who has fallen silent after the sudden passing of his mother - Verena is brought in to help him speak again. As a new mother myself, the film resonated very deeply with me. I had the opportunity to work closely with Eric Howell, who directed the film, and Michael Wandmacher, who composed the score. I was very moved by the movie, and after having my first conversation with Eric and Michael, I felt a surge of inspiration and immediately began writing. It is a rare phenomenon to really share a creative vision so completely, and that made for a very powerful experience, and an end result that I am very proud of.”
“It was an honour to be able to work with Eric on the music video as well, which was shot in Sienna, Italy, at the same beautiful location as the film. We conceived the video as a parallel and backstory to the film, which explores the strong bond of love between Malvina and her son, and the belief that love is stronger than death.”
Amy Lee is currently in the studio with her band, Evanescence, working on new music expected later this year. The band play two shows at Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in June as part of a wider European tour.
June 13th - London, UK @ Eventim Apollo
June 14th – London, UK @ Eventim Apollo SOLD OUT
Carach Angren are now unveiling the first stunning track of their forthcoming new album. The Dutch masters of horror metal have entitled their new haunting 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten' and the release date has been slated for June 16th.
The song "Song for the Dead" is exclusively streaming via the official premiere partners listed below.
Heavy Mag (AU)
Metal Hammer (DE)
Radio Metal (FR)
Lángoló Gitárok (HU)
Metal Wani (IN)

Carach Angren comment: "After months of hard work we proudly reopen the doors to our haunted mansion to reveal the first deadly taste of our upcoming concept album. A unique horror story as you all expect and deserve from us, we consider this as one of the most terrifying tracks that we have created so far."
Carach Angren are furthermore revealing the cover art by renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu and track-list of 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten', which can both be viewed below.
The Dutch masters of horror are back with their most flamboyant album so far. On 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten', Carach Angren are painting musical pictures that easily combine the grandiose depth of a Rembrandt with Van Gogh's maelstrom of whirling colours and the utter madness of Bosch. This lusciously seductive danse macabre will drag you in and never let go.
Carach Angren have employed all the sonic colours on their palette to dazzling effect. Their trademark whipping guitars are weaving harsh melodies and sinister soundscapes, which are beautifully contrasted by opulent keyboards and majestic orchestrations. That Till Lindemann (Rammstein) and Peter Tägtgren (Pain) have called upon the composition talent of Clemens "Ardek" Wijers is a telling sign of his outstanding mastery of the craft. Another signatory counterpoint is provided by Seregor's fierce rasping and shrieking vocals. Adding to the impact, Namtar has become a relentless driving force with his hard hitting yet intricate drumming. Each track on this album is a highlight on its own, while combined 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten' simply shines.
Italian Death Metallers Antropofagus have partnered with Decibel Magazine in debuting "Spawn of Chaos," a track from forthcoming Comatose Music release Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration (M.O.R.T.E.). Get in on the action below!
Antropofagus returns on May 12, 2017 with an album of uncompromising godless ferocity! Five years after their highly praised Architecture of Lust release, this Italian death metal beast strikes again with Comatose Music release Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration (M.O.R.T.E.), a journey into life, death, resurrection and the descent into the darkest depths of self.
This is Antropofagus' heaviest and most wicked effort to date, blending old school US death metal influences with their trademark style of brutality. M.O.R.T.E. is a deluge of punishing frantic riffs, monstrous vocals and a relentless drums performance by Davide 'BrutalDave' Billia (Beheaded, Hour Of Penance). Make no mistake; there is no escape. Antropofagus is coming to consume your flesh and invade your soul! Also look out for the officially licensed vinyl edition from Everlasting Spew Records.
Guitarist Francesco and Vocalist Tya had this to say about the forthcoming Comatose Music release:
Francesco: "We decided to go with a warmer and fatter tone this time. The songs are more straight forward and in your face than the songs on 'Architecture of Lust', and certainly more groovy. I'd say this is the most old school and evil Antropofagus album to date. Dave and I worked hard to make sure this album would have a deeper sanguineous sound, and I also went from a six string to a seven string guitar for this recording. I'd say Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal have been the strongest influences while writing this album, but the Antropofagus trademark is definitely there, so expect pure brutality! Probably our most balanced and mature album so far."
Tya: "This is definitely the Antropofagus album which we worked the most on, the one that required the highest tribute from us. As on a conceptual level, it's drenched of my own blood. M.O.R.T.E. is a continual succession of thoughts, shadows and nightmares shaped into music, extreme and hate-filled against all which is dogmatic to humanity's eyes. A process of rebirth through the evisceration of my own self."
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.
Foscor are now premiering the first track taken from their forthcoming fifth full-length. 'Les Irreals Visions' has been slated for release on June 9th.
The Catalan melancholy metal experts are now streaming the song "Ciutat Tràgica" featuring Alan A. Nemtheanga from Primordial exclusively via the official premiere partners listed below.

Regarding the song premiere, Foscor comment:
"Our premiere song 'Ciutat Tràgica' translates as 'tragic city' and it was admittedly also our original choice for the new album's opening track and title. In terms of lyrics, this record maps the collective interactions, weaknesses, and individual hopes of human beings in a city as a metaphor - amplifying the myths that we face. Life as such is represented by a maze of places, paths, wefts, and bounds that make us into who we are.
After receiving the translation into photography, which Dutch artist Nona Limmen developed around our concept, for the album artwork, and its cover, we realized the bigger scale and wider connection that everything had with the Modernist Art period. Isolating the experience of hallucination to treat the ventures and misfortunes of the human being in a changing and distressed society, this magical place becomes a dreamlike landscape of extremes where we locate the scene and its reality. The first song premiered perfectly describes the emotional dimension of the nature of our music.
Reminiscent of the 80's monochrome landscapes that we all have in mind, it offers the same intensity and vitality, which has always characterized us and that people hopefully find throughout this whole album. To work only with clean vocals and adding Catalan lyrics clearly mark a changing point for us. Last but not least, having Irish gentleman Alan A. Nemtheanga from Primordial performing vocals on this song makes it an even more special moment."
Dealing with demons while in the public spotlight isn't an easy thing. It's something The Bunny The Bear's frontman, Matthew Tybor, has been doing for years while struggling with substance abuse. It was that struggle that inspired the new song, "I Am Free", which the band is proud to premiere the video for.
The powerful lyrics of the song (This is the last time that I'll walk ashamed of my choices,
this emptiness, feeding my future to flames. This is the day I will finally be free of these demons, addictions that keep me in chains. I am free) are extremely personal to Tybor as he is currently in recovery and is no longer using. He explains, "[substance abuse] can seem like a seeming endless struggle to overcome such demons. Booze, pills, whatever really. A huge bulk of society struggles with some, or all of the above, myself included. Sometimes you have no choice but to find that sliver of hope within all the despair."
This video is special as the band shot footage on during shows in a few of their favourite cities and put together a live video for the second single off their upcoming Needful Things Records release "The Way We Rust". Tybor shares, "I couldn't be more stoked with how the video turned out. I hope our fans, old and new, enjoy this video as much as I do."
"The Way We Rust" will be be out on March 17th and is available for pre-order now at Merchbucket.

Most people have experienced tragedy in their lives and have been left to deal with the emotions. Everyone deals with this in their own way, The Artificials have taken a very painful experience of losing a friend in an accident and paid tribute in their new single, "Stormwolf".
Aside from the hauntingly beautiful vocals of Sarah Rigdon, The Artificials' heartache is evident as she faithfully sings, "When your soul left, part of our hearts turned forever blue. We try to understand, but the peace of God surpasses all understanding. Blessed are those who mourn". Guitarist Alan Rigdon shares his perspective, "This song is dedicated in memory of Daulton Storm Holly, a friend who was taken from the world way too soon by a drunk driver. Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."
The Artificials also announced that their debut album, "Heart", will be out on 3/31 and is available for pre order now at Merchbucket.
Listen to "Stormwolf" now
With a unique use of polyrhythms and odd time signatures, The Artificials will take you on somewhat of a mathematical journey of controlled chaos. Every song has a purpose and a certain feel, while keeping it simple with a catchy chorus to keep people singing. The dynamics of the clean guitar sections will take you from a sparkling angelic coma to a crushing chaotic rhythm and rip you back into reality.
The Artificials originally consisted of Guitarist Alan Rigdon and his friend Aaron Surratt way back as teenagers posting demos on Myspace. Although the recordings were rough, it got the musicians noticed. Rigdon decided to put the band on hold when he joined Erra. After recording with Erra and going out on numerous national tours, Rigdon felt it was time to get back to his own thing. He went on to marry Vocalist Sarah Rigdon and started up The Artificals again.
Finding the perfect additions to the line-up proved to be easier said than done. Rigdon found Travis Wilburn (guitar) on social media and because he had a similar writing style, he proved to be a perfect fit. Brent Stanley, a proficient multi instrumentalist was a home-town friend of Rigdon’s and was brought in on bass. Finding a drummer was the most difficult spot to fill but luckily Rigdon’s childhood friend, Shelton Summersgill was between projects and joined on drums.
The Artificials released a 4 track EP in 2014 (Produced/Engineered by A. Rigdon of Study Sounds Recordings, Mastered by Griffin Kolinski [RIP] at Hourglass Studios). It was these recordings and the past relationship Rigdon had with Tragic Hero Records President Tommy LaCombe while with ERRA that led to the band partnering up with the label for their first full length album, “Heart” (Mixed / produced / mastered by A. Rigdon of Study Sound Recordings). Rigdon explains, “I have history with Tragic as I used to play guitar for ERRA. Tommy and I kept in touch because I felt like he really cared about our music and provided us with such a personable business relationship."
"Heart" will be out March 2017. The band looks forward to hitting the road on their first tour together.
