“You know what? F@$% it! We’ll just do it ourselves.” That’s the attitude I Am The Law takes with its approach to its own brand of Southern Metal. Embodying the self-reliant spirit of the American South, these four rowdy boys from Nashville groove and shred. Drawing from influences such as Pantera, Lamb Of God, Rob Zombie, The Showdown, He is Legend, and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, the band created a distinct, aggressive sound with 2015’s EP Blackwater Gospel. With sophomore offering Hymn Of the Vulture (originally put out in 2017 and re-released fall 2018), I Am The Law refined its voice and sound, becoming more mature and even more aggressive with each track.
The band has been nominated for the 2016/17 and now 2018 NIMA Awards for Best Hard Rock/Metal Band. They have also opened up for more well known and established acts such as Superjoint, Crowbar, Doyle, The Obsessed, Battle Cross, Enterprise Earth, Child Bite, and Mobile Deathcamp.

Norwegian Black / Thrash quartet Nocturnal Breed to release new album "We Only Came For The Violence" in June
Norwegian Black/Thrash Metal cult act Nocturnal Breed have revealed first details for their new album.

The release date is set for June 28th, 2019, and "We Only Came For The Violence" will be released by Folter Records.

Savage Messiah have announced their new album, Demons, out May 17th via Century Media as well as sharing their new single, ‘Under No Illusions’, the first to be taken from the album. To celebrate the release, the band will also be playing three headline shows in Manchester, London and Glasgow in May. Pre-order the album here.
“This is the first time we’ve ever attempted to play some kind of special album launch shows, and we’re going to pull out all of the stops to make these really memorable events for our fans in the U.K.”
The track is an explosive blend of frenzied riffs with anthemic choruses melded together to form an intense, melodic metal rocket. The video sees footage of the band performing from a string of mainstream festivals last year including the mainstage at Hellfest, Graspop and Download festival.
Demons is Savage Messiah’s fifth studio album and sees the band deliver a fresh new sound that will infect ears and conquer minds. Singer and guitarist Dave Silver describes a band reborn on the new record. “I looked at what we’ve done in the past and knew we could be taking this band way further.”
“The word ‘Demons’ encapsulate the story of the band,” Silver continues. “It’s about rising to the inevitable challenges that everyone faces in pursuit of any higher end goal. The album deals with attempting to conquer both the internal and external demons that perpetually arise and permanently threaten to derail and discourage.”
The group pursued a change of dynamic on the new record by enlisting producer David Castillo. Renowned for his work with metal stalwarts including Opeth, Dimmu Borgir and Soilwork, David produced their recording sessions at Jens Bogrens’ Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. The outcome is a an incredibly varied body of work and a huge step up from previous releases.
Joined by Carcass drummer Dan Wilding and touring drummer Ali Richardson for the Sweden sessions, the band took a spontaneous approach to developing the 11 new tracks that comprise the record.
One of Demons’ biggest surprises is undoubtedly its cover of hit single Parachute by American country/folk Grammy winner Chris Stapleton – cleverly rewired into a hard rock format by trading the banjos and acoustics for loud and proud electricity. Of the cover version, Silver comments, “I noticed the arrangement almost felt like a heavy metal song, so wanted to see what we could do with it.”
With millions of YouTube and Spotify streams and a social media reach extending beyond even some of the metal heroes that influenced them, the band’s focus is to now be heard anywhere and everywhere.
When Dave describes connecting with the streaming audience as “where the roller coaster ride starts in terms of being heard”, it’s because he’s had more insight than most on how technology can shape culture have worked in various roles across the music industry over the last decade.
Having seen changes from the inside as much as the outside, Dave’s experiences have provided enough perspective to help him stay grounded about his band’s accomplishments and aspirations without diminishing his fervent drive to succeed.
Savage Messiah are completed by guitarist David Pear, bassist Mira Slama and now drummer Charly Carreton.

Legendary UK Thrash Metal band Onslaught premieres a brand new track entitled- 'A Perfect Day to Die' that is taken off the forthcoming album whose title will be revealed in the coming days.
Guitarist Nige Rockett comments:-
"We are really psyched to finally get some new material out to the fans, the first single to come from the new album is entitled 'A Perfect Day to Die' and is a little nod to our sadly departed friends from 'Motorhead' who were a major influence for Onslaught in many many ways. The track has been mixed by 'Jacob Hansen' (Volbeat, Udo, Evergrey) and produced by ourselves and 'Pete Hinton' (Saxon) it sounds so heavy with a super aggressive vibe, it really has a ton of potential..!" He goes on to add, "Right now we're currently working flat out finish the remainder of the writing for the next record, things are sounding so cool, fresh and very brutal."

Japanese metal group Survive began life over 20 years and have forged their own indelible path within the jmetal scene. It was back in 1998, when former Death File guitarist and mastermind Nemo decided to form a thrash metal band of his own which soon became the juggernaut known as Survive. It didn’t take long for the band to create their first demo tape and their promise was backed-up in a big way when the group embarked on a tour with legendary Japanese thrash-metallers United (whose guitarist Singo Otani also produced the demo). Soon after, Survive were ready to release their debut album Against Next, which allowed the band to tour Japan extensively and gain domestic recognition.
Over the next two decades the band released 5 albums and toured with metal giants such as Napalm Death, At The Gates, Kreator, Overkill and Venom, cementing their place in Japanese metal history. Still going strong, Survive‘s latest album Immortal Warriors was released to the Japanese market in late 2018 and now the album will be released worldwide via Sliptrick Records in 2019. Survive have lost none of their verve and Immortal Warriors is an absolute must for fans of this fantastic, often overlooked band.
