Pure Grain Audio has premiered a new song from Time Isn't Healing, the forthcoming album from Ukrainian Power Metal quintet Defiant. Stream "Milestones of Time" at:
Defiant will release sophomore full-length album Time Isn't Healing November 25 through Ferrrum Records. Pre-order it at this location.
Check out New Noise Magazine's exclusive stream of new song "Funeral Feast" at:
Since its formation in 2008, Defiant's mission has been to enthral fans with a brand of power metal that is as muscular as it is melodic. Defiant went on to release no less than three EP's and 2012's full-length debut Masquerade, collectively laying the groundwork for what can only be called its magnum opus: Time Isn't Healing. The crunching riffs and soaring leads of guitarist Andrey Turkovsky blend seamlessly with the epic, often breathtaking keyboard work of Victoria Terzieva, while Stanislav Proshkin's gritty yet tuneful vocals offer a captivating stamp of distinction. The clanging bass lines of Oleg Yakovlev and airtight drumming of Eugeniy Smolin form a robust rhythmic foundation.
But it's the quality and consistency of the songwriting that is perhaps most impressive about the new album. Whether the up-tempo power metal pummel of "Milestones of Time" or the mid-tempo elegance of "According to the Acts," Time Isn't Healing sinks the hooks in deep and keep the listener in a state of rapt attention from beginning to end.

One-man horror themed project Temple of Demigod was formed in Yerevan, Armenia to play symphonic black/death metal. In late 2014, Mark Erskine, a guitarist/songwriter of Ghoulchapel, decided to create his own project; after coming up with a name and style, highly influenced by bands such as Behemoth, Emperor, Dark Funeral, The Wicked, Crionics and Vesania, maybe not lyrically, but definitely musically.
Moving from standard "anti-religious", "satanic" themes to more conceptual, mystical and horror inspired lyrics, Mark has found his inspiration in Lovecraftian stories, and the next desire was to write and record new stuff for the first full-length album, and make it "conceptual" from the beginning to an end.“The Great Old Ones”, an absolute journey into the realm of supernatural horrifying beings crafted by Lovecraft. The eight dark symphonic anthems will evoke a sense of horror inside the listeners, and no wonder if the listeners discover themselves in a world filled with paranormal beings.
Echoes and Dust has exclusively streamed the title track of the album
Mark shared his thoughts on the title track "The Great Old Ones":
"It's about all the horrifying creatures from Lovecraft's stories upon the whole. You can not understand them, they are beyond our comprehension. Basically the song tells you that you're helpless before Them, The Great Old Ones are worse than your nightmares, creatures of cosmos, chaotic and disturbing, they are going to destroy every living form on this planet, to claim the throne, only few will survive in that bloodbath, the ones who believe and worship them."

As Lions announce their debut full-length album "Selfish Age", out January 20 via Better Noise Records.
Selfish Age is the follow-up to As Lions’ debut EP Aftermath released earlier this year. Produced by award-winning producer David Bendeth (Of Mice & Men, Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon) and Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, In This Moment), Selfish Age is an illustration of the band’s mission to create “the biggest, baddest hard rock we could, and on an almost cinematic scale.” The album’s 11 dynamic tracks are a study in contrasts, with the epic and evocative 'Aftermath', the crushing 'Deathless' which targets the internet culture’s obsession with image, 'Bury My Dead', a hard-hitting personal statement complemented by stately piano tinklings, and the electro-tinged title track, 'Selfish Age' —full track listing enclosed.

Comprised of Austin Dickinson on vocals, guitarist and keyboardist Conor O’Keefe, guitarist Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting and drummer Dave Fee, As Lions showcase an evolution in British rock. Having already played sold out shows in the UK, As Lions are now leaving their imprint on the States during their US arena tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, and Sixx:A.M..

With the first single “Eye Of Chaos” almost reaching 1 million views on YouTube, Once Human are about to release the next video for their new single “Gravity” on November 22nd. The upcoming album Evolution will be released on January 20th, 2017.
Evolution is not just the title of Once Human’s sophomore release, it’s an armor-plated declaration. Having made waves with their 2015 debut, The Life I Remember, the band have dramatically progressed beyond the melodic death metal sound of that release into something more complex, emotional, distinct, and devastatingly heavy.
“Having been focused on recording, producing and developing bands, I had not picked up the guitar out of passion for twelve years but as soon as I started writing with Lauren (Hart, vocals) I fell in love with what we were making, and I wanted to play in the band and get back on stage,” states guitarist Logan Mader, whose name will be familiar to metalheads not only for his production and / or mixing work on records from the likes of Gojira, Fear Factory and Devildriver, but also as the original guitarist in Machine Head, and his late 90s stint in Soulfly.
With the line-up rounded out by drummer Dillon Trollope, bassist Damien Rainaud and guitarists Skyler Howren and recent recruit Max Karon, everything about Evolution makes it clear that this is a band pushing itself to deliver something that truly stands apart. “Our first record was getting the ball rolling, but now it’s as if we’re a totally different band. We really found our sound and our identity, it’s quite unique and I think what we’re doing is really on fire.”
With the intensity and range of Hart’s roar having drastically increased, she unleashes it across complex and constantly shifting time signatures, and thick, contorted riffs that land with sledgehammer force. However, this is not only about bludgeoning the listener into submission, the violence often juxtaposed with eerie atmospherics and dark melodies to create something with great depth.
WormHoleDeath are proud to announce that Atropas' EP "From Ashes" will be out worldwide on all major digital stores on December the 2nd via Wormholedeath / The Orchard.
Atropas is ready for the future. After making themselves known in the Swiss underground with their debut album "Azrael", they have released their second full length production. "Episodes of Solitude“ on the 4th of September 2015 via WormholeDeath and Aural Music. The band has played countless live shows in the meantime: a Swiss tour, support shows for Gojira and Eluveitie, an Eastern Europe tour. During the last months Atropas has taken a step back from the intense touring, but has not been lazy at all. The work on new material is running full force and now their new EP “From Ashes”, a re-recording of 6 songs off their debut album “Azrael” will be released on the 2nd of December. The Swiss quartet has emerged to be one of the most promising Metal acts in their country and their next tours through Europe and Switzerland will be showcasing their intense and emotional live show again!
What first began as an online correspondence in 2008 between guitarist Greg Hanson and vocalist Aleisha Simpson has lead to the inception of symphonic hard rockers Heart Avail. Joined by Mick Barnes on bass and Seamus Gleason on drums, the Spokane, WA based band is now set to release their debut self titled EP on December 9th with distribution by Milagro Records. The five track release is inspired by the loss of loved ones and written essentially as a therapy session with painful lyrics to relate to those with similar experiences. The band’s influences like Evanescence, Nightwish and Within Temptation are heard in each aspect of the music from the vocals to the drums.
Teaming up FemmeMetalWebzine.net, Heart Avail is sharing their second single 'Broken Fairytale' at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xouJ3IqSIA
