Californian Prog / Tech-Death trio Inanimate Existence premiere third single "Desert" at The Circle Pit
California-based Progressive / Technical Death Metal trio Inanimate Existence recently announced their upcoming fifth full-length album, 'Clockwork'. The album is set for release on May 10th via The Artisan Era. It is the follow up to the group's highly praised fourth album, Underneath a Melting Sky, which was released in 2017. Active since 2011, the band has yet to slow down in between regular extended touring on a near yearly basis and with four well-received albums released to date already.
Continuing the group's evolution found on 2017's Underneath a Melting Sky, Clockwork delves ever deeper into cerebral progressive death metal depths while buoyed by the group's established penchant for merciless full-throttle brutality and frenetic tech-death driven terrain. The stunning cover artwork for Clockwork was created by Justin Abraham (Equipoise, Oubliette, A Loathing Requiem, Aepoch) and the recording was handled by both the band itself and with usual collaborator Zack Ohren (Fallujah, Continuum, Alterbeast) who mixed and mastered Clockwork at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California.
Inanimate Existence partnered with The Circle Pit today to premiere the album's third single, "Desert". Today's premiere of "Desert" doubles as a music video as well.

Tennessee groove metallers I Am The Law have just released their new single "Dance of the Southern Witch" via Alternative Control. The track is taken from their upcoming EP of the same name which will be released this spring.
Listen to the track here: http://www.alternativecontrolct.com/music/altctrltoob-video-premiere-i-am-the-laws-dance-of-the-southern-witch/#.XLD7T-hKjIU
“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.
Regrettably, Ozzy Osbourne has postponed all of his 2019 tour dates as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with a recent bout of pneumonia. Osbourne fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery last month. Due to the postponement of Ozzy’s tour, Ozzy Osbourne will no longer be performing at this year’s Rocklahoma. Details about the festival’s Saturday, May 25th line-up will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
Ozzy Osbourne released the following statement earlier this morning:-
“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates. Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. I’m grateful for the love and support I’m getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it’s really what’s keeping me going. Just know that I am getting better every day…I will fully recover…I will finish my tour…I will be back!”
Mike DuCharme, Festival Producer and Talent Buyer for Rocklahoma says:-
“While there is no replacement for Ozzy yet, we are working diligently to find a new headliner and will update our fans as soon as we can. We wish Ozzy a speedy recovery, and hope to see him on the Rocklahoma stage in the future.”
Rocklahoma will take place May 24-May 26 at Pryor Creek Music Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma, just outside Tulsa. For more information on Rocklahoma, visit: https://rocklahoma.com
Alternative Metal artists Fate Destroyed release the lyric video for their new song Inside.
After the success of Fate DeStroyed's video We Fall, they have returned with their follow up lyric video Inside. The song is about the veil we pull over our eyes to justify chasing after the things which we think will make us happy but will inevitably destroy us. Inside exposes our masochistic pursuit of happiness.
The lyric video for Inside was designed by David Letelier and produced by Brandon Wolfe. Inside is out now and can be seen by clicking the link below.
Fate DeStroyed is a Los Angeles based metal band, formed by front woman Franccesca De Struct in 2016.
Currently breaking ground with their fierce new take on the metal status quo, Fate DeStroyed combines visceral guitars and driving synths to leverage the gap between hard hitting 90's industrial and modern heavy metal. While they draw influence from bands such as Trivium, Deftones and Nine Inch Nails, the unexpected audio assault and raw emotion from front woman Franccesca DeStruct sets them apart from the pack.
2018 served as a turning point for the group having solidified their line up with Jonni Laww , joined on Guitars, with Nathan YoungBlood (Green Jelly/Ex-Dirty Machine) on Bass, and Ben Levi of Matriarchs on Drums.
In May 2018 the band released the music video to their first single “Break Free” produced by Carlton Bost of Orgy.
Their follow up track “We Fall” was released in on October and is currently on heavy rotation on most digital radio platforms.
Collectively Garnering over 250,000 Streams on Spotify Alone.

LA death metal cult Crematory Stench stream the entirety of their highly anticipated second EP, Grotesque Deformities, at Revolver magazine's website. Set for international release on February 15th via Blood Harvest Records (distributed & marketed by Regain Records) sets February 15th on cassette tape and 12" vinyl formats, hear Crematory Stench's Grotesque Deformities in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Southern California, Crematory Stench formed in 2014 and released their self-titled debut EP two years later. Then a trio, the band's sound was a thrashing take on late '80s death metal, largely nodding to early Death and Pestilence. Now expanded to a quartet and has been a prolific force on the live front, Crematory Stench's attack has but gotten nastier, gnarlier, and creepier. One could argue that with Grotesque Deformities, they have entered the very early '90s, owing as they do to the sounds coming from Sweden then. Either way, it's utterly hellish.
But, on evidence of this new second EP, Crematory Stench are just getting started and will undoubtedly get darker and more disgusting. Jump on their bandwagon now and witness their Grotesque Deformities! Jump fully on that bandwagon exclusively HERE, courtesy of Revolver, North America's premier rock & metal authority. Preorder info for both formats can be found HERE at Blood Harvest's Bandcamp.
Metalcore’s next breakout band Kingdom Of Giants has joined forces with the genre’s leading label SharpTone Records, and today has released a music video for their brand-new single, 'Bleach.'
“The KOG boys and I are beyond excited to announce our signing to SharpTone Records. The roster is filled with so many of our close friends and so much talent, it is an honour to be put remotely in the same category as any of them. Along with the signing announcement we have dropped our brand new single 'Bleach' - tracked, mixed, and mastered by myself, and co-written with a few close friends Daniel Goehring, Noel Torres, Stuart Richardson, and Mitchell Garrett. The song is accompanied by my personal favourite music video from KOG to date, shot and edited by the legend Orie McGuinnes, the last few months we’ve had opportunities present themselves that we never thought possible, and are eternally grateful to anyone and anything that has helped us this far in our career.” - KOG.
We hope you are all as excited as we are for the future of Dana Willax

Ohio's The World I Knew bring 'Trap Metal' to the fore with 'Piecefull' music video; trance-hip hop metalcore
Trap Metal Band The World I Knew Release New Music Video for "Piecefull" - WATCH IT HERE
Cincinnati-based The World I Knew bring a distinct and unapologetic vibe to the metalcore scene. Fusing together elements of electro, hip-hop and chest-pounding breakdowns, the quintet has released their latest single and music video "Piecefull."
"'Piecefull' is about pretenders," says vocalist Wesley Merritt. "Those that will pretend to be there for you and have your back as long as things are going well for them, and what happens to them once they've been exposed. We take loyalty very seriously, loyalty is everything."
"Piecefull" starts with Merritt acting as his own hype man before launching into a full-on lyrical beatdown. The video was directed by Josh Emerick and Ross Thiesen, shot in a Columbus, OH at The Continent.
The World I Knew have been striving to create music without boundaries or limitations since their formation in 2014 and the release of their debut single "Fuck a 9-5." The group's uncanny ability to seamlessly engage with audiences across the punk/metal/rap/rock scene makes them an attractive group to follow in 2019.
Listen to "Piecefull" now on Spotify.
