Japan's finest metal band Gyze, who are celebrating the release of their brand new EP 'The Rising Dragon' today, have announced a bunch of European summer live dates!
Formed in 2009 in Sapporo, Japan, Gyze gained credence among many talented local artists. As a result, they were invited to Tokyo where they released their first EP in 2011. In 2012 the band took the second place in national Metal-Battle Finals in Japan organized by Wacken Open Air. Being noticed overseas Gyze signed their first contract with Coroner Records.
Their first album “Fascinating Violence” was released Worldwide in 2013 and 2014 in Japan. It was ranked #1 on Amazon for consequent 3 months and topped the import CD charts in BURRN! magazine. After their major debut in Japan with Victor Entertainment in September 2014, Gyze have released their second full-format album in Japan and in 2015 Worldwide. In late 2016 Gyze joined the collaboration project to create the soundtrack for a PS4 game ”Let It DIe” developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and released worldwide by GungHo Online. Having gained recognition among the world metalheads, Gyze released their 3rd full-length album with Universal Music Japan in March 2017. Today Gyze have released their brand new new EP 'The Rising Dragon' ( including a stunning bonus track featuring Marc Hudson of Dragonforce! ), which gives an absolutely new feel and is filled with haunting Japanese melodies. 'The Rising Dragon' is out now, grab your copy on Spotify and Amazon!

Corrosion Of Conformity has been diligently working on their follow-up to 2014's IX offering. Helmed by longtime producer John Custer, who's recorded such prior COC classics as Deliverance, Wiseblood, America's Volume Dealer, and In The Arms Of God, the record will mark the band's studio reunion with vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan and their first full-length record together since 2005.
Corrosion Of Conformity emerged from hibernation as a trio and released 2012's self-titled album and 2014's IX to wide acclaim, but many fans have been eagerly and patiently awaiting the return of Keenan.
Flynn Effect are giving their new dark and brooding film-clip to the world and releasing the details of their Obsidian album tour. Second Album 'Obsidian' will be available for purchase on August 4 and can be pre-ordered now at Bandcamp.
The pyro-and-makeup-heavy filmclip is for single FADE, which Heavy Magazine described as "Simply Beautiful", sets the tone for the album and shows all and sundry just what Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne are in store for when Flynn Effect hits their town (probably minus the Pyros, though!).
The short but excellent tour takes in Sydney's The Factory Floor on Friday August 11 with Gods of Eden, Mercury Sky and Reign on Mars, Melbourne's iconic The Workers Club Sunday August 13 with Caution:Thieves, Enlight and Terrestrials and hometown Brisbane on Friday August 18 at The Brightside with Mercury Sky, Seraphic and Periapsis.
Lead singer Tomina Vincent said that she is proud of the effort that went into this film-clip - "We wanted the film clip to be sort of opposite to the song. It's a very hopeful and upbeat track, but we wanted to add a little bit of darkness and theatre to it - its what we love and basically what Flynn Effect is all about. It was filmed in over 12 hours in the freezing cold; lights exploded, the fire brigade almost fined us. There were unplanned explosions, bruises, we couldn't wash the fake blood off for days, I nearly fainted several times, but It was a lot of fun! We couldn't be happier with this album and we're incredibly excited to be playing these new songs for people on the road. Its our first national tour and we've got a very ambitious show this time around which we can't wait to reveal."
