The second album from Russian progressive metalcore group Next Door To Heaven is called V Ways To Accept. It is a mature work which totally differs from the first releases of the band which were part of the search for their own style and sound. With V Ways To Accept, they seem to have found it. The album takes the listener on a long journey with a concept based around human emotions. You start from the denial stage, go through anger, bargaining, depression and finally end up with acceptance. Read more about V Ways To Accept …here

Australian Metalcore crew Amberyse add Brisbane date to 'The Glass House' tour; tour supports announced
Geelong metalcore crew Amberyse dropped their huge single "Glass House" and announced their 'The Glass House' Tour on May 3rd - and now they are adding a Brisbane date to that schedule - and are today announcing the sweet list of artists supporting them on the tour!
The single 'Glass House' is live for streaming and purchase now at bit.ly/GlassHouseSpotify and tickets for all shows on their tour are available at amberyse.com/shows.
The Geelong outfit initially announced three red hot shows for 'The Glass House Tour' - with shows at Sydney's Crowbar, Melbourne's Stay Gold and Geelong's Workers. Today they have added Saturday July 6 in Brisbane at Crowbar, supporting Brissy home town alt-metal legends Meliorist, who have also experienced recent success with their EP and singles! Tickets to all shows are available at www.amberyse.com/shows.
The Crowbar Sydney show will feature support from Liberties, Kaskeid, Elision and Infinite Illusion, Melbourne's Stay Gold show remains a hyped-up mystery for now, Geelong's Workers' show will see The Gloom in The Corner, Liberties and Shopping Trolley Fist Fight - and the Brisbane show sees Meliorist headlining, Amberyse in main support and Isla Vera.
The track "Glass House" is produced, mixed and mastered at The Loud Noise Estate and at its core is about drug abuse and struggling to overcome addiction. The track has managed to secure the band plays on triple j's Short. Fast. Loud., rotation play on The Faction Radio and playlist addition to Spotify's Homegrown and Heavy and Apple Music's Heaps Heavy Playlist!
Forming in early 2015, Geelong's own Amberyse wasted little time establishing themselves as a fiery and energetic collection of musicians with a dynamic stage presence. The groups blend of heavy/melodic riffs, groove riddled percussion and the frenzied energy of frontman Jayden bring together a unique sound that they are proud to call their own. The release of their last creation 'Heavy Hands' in 2018 saw the group playing with the likes of Northlane, In Hearts Wake, Ocean Grove, Hands like Houses and Deez Nuts.
"Glass House" is out now at iTunes & Apple Music/Spotify/Google Play and all good online stores and streaming outlets. Tickets are on sale now for Amberyse's Glass House Tour at amberyse.com/shows.

One of the best parts of music is how it brings people together by giving artists a platform to share their personal experiences that gives listeners comfort in knowing they aren't alone in the trials and tribulations they face in life. Denver metalcore band, The Anchor, strives to make meaningful music that fans can connect to their own lives. Describing their inspiration as "Knowing first hand the refuge that music can offer away from life's struggles, we hope to be a voice of understanding and provide a place that someone can call their home." The West Coast band is excited to announce they will be taking their infectious live show on the road with their first ever East Coast run which features support from VRSTY (We Are Triumphant).
The Anchor has seen success since their debut album was released in 2016 (hitting #7 on the iTunes metal charts) and their most recent EP on Manic Kat Records, "Make It Last," catapulted the band to a new level earlier this year hitting #19 on the Billboard Heatseeker Chart along with multiple iTunes charts. Frontwoman Linzey Rae has made a name for herself in the metal community as not only an immensely talented screamer and clean vocalist, but also for her YouTube stardom showcasing her vivacious personality.
The "Make It Last Summer Tour" kicks off on May 31st in South Bend, IN and wraps up on June 17th in the band's home town of Denver, CO. The band is stoked to be heading out later this month and shared, "We are super excited to finally be heading to the East Coast with our new friends in VRSTY!"
The "Make It Last," EP is available on all streaming platforms including Spotify with physical merch at Big Cartel.
The Anchor is a five-piece, female-fronted, metalcore band from Denver, Colorado. The Anchor and Linzey Rae have made a name for themselves since the viral explosion of their YouTube series, Metal Kitchen. In December 2016, The Anchor released their first full-length album, A World Ahead, which charted #7 on the metal iTunes charts. After signing with Manic Kat Records, The Anchor released their next EP, Make it Last, in February 2018. Following the EP release, Make it Last charted #19 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, #11 on the iTunes Alternative chart, and #99 on the iTunes New Release chart.
Internationally-renowned heavy metal leaders Lamb Of God will support metal legends Slayer on leg one, North America, of what will be Slayer's final world tour. The 26-date trek will begin on May 10 and visit several major cities - from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Additional support will come from fellow metal heavyweights Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26; log onto www.lamb-of-god.com for all ticketing info.
Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God says: "If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it's an incredible honour. Slayer gave Lamb Of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt - I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour - well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We'll see you on the road..."

The band is currently in Dead Rat studio recording their follow up to 6.0.1which was released in November 2016 on LP format via Southern Lord, and prior to that on CD format via FWH Records.

Lifesick twists the clobbering sounds of bands like Merauder, Xibalba, and Nails, combined with the northern European climate: harsh, cold, and steeped in metal history. Between brutal breakdowns and direct, forceful vocals, the young Danes make their mark with evil melodies that ooze black and death metal vibes, all delivered in the crushing tone of the HM-2.
