Ketsuro was born along with Unholy Harakiri herself, amid the pandemic and one of the most difficult moments in Brazilian politics. The band brings here a little of all the references that we have lived, not only in terms of music but also in the content of each track, which address themes related to Japanese and Brazilian culture and personal and social conflicts.
"Ketsuro" is the bloody path we've come this far and we're sure many of you will relate to it too. It has been difficult times but we will win together. Listen to "Ketsuro":https://found.ee/ketsuro
Watch the video for "Espiral" feat. SEMDÓ: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcSfclVwN64
Formed in 2020, Unholy Harakiri has a mix between members of two underground metal bands, Yukio Hara, Guitarist and Raphael Gonçalves, Bassist (Ex-Colwire) and Maikon Campioni, Vocal (Athimia). The band's proposal is to reinvent the Brazilian metal scene mixing a lot of weight, low tunings and a pinch of Asian culture, futuristic themes and cyberpunk.
In December 2020, the first single "Rakuin" is released by the Coffin Joe Records label, which features the opening track "Stigma (Rakuin)" and "Bloody Path" accompanying an Anime Music Video with scenes from the anime Berserk (Kentaro Miura) 1997, illustrating the song's theme.
In 2022, the singles K I N T S U G I and Penumbra were released. With this debut, the band guaranteed good numbers in their media and streaming profiles, and their full album is now released on all streaming platforms, in order to start planning the launch tour.
Don't mess with Suicide Silence... you might not live to regret it! The band has dropped the NSFW video for "Capable of Violence." The age-gated video is basically a slasher flick condensed into four-and-half-minutes. And it, well, slays!
Watch it here.
"What would it take to make you retaliate?," the band states rhetorically. "Even further, what would make you take a life? Is there ever an appropriate time for violence? We live in a world where these questions are unfortunately answered by many all of the time. An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind, yet humanity continues to crave death and destruction. Are you 'Capable of Violence?'"
As for the blood and guts visual?
"This might be the most Suicide Silence video EVER," the group offers. "We hope you enjoy it. Happy Halloween everyone. Heavy as possible."
Suicide Silence will drop their seventh studio album, Remember… You Must Die, which was produced and mixed by Taylor Young (NAILS, Xibalba, Vitriol…), in the first quarter of 2023. Stay tuned for more — but maybe with less blood and gore than the "Capable of Violence" video.
Unseen Faith deliver a crushing fusion between deathcore and metalcore at the highest standard, with compositions that naturally move between dark and groovy to exalted atmospheric breathing halts. Armed with heavy guitar riffs, lots of energy and neck-wrecking breakdowns, the quintet is more than ready to make an impression on the world, with what they define as their finest songs yet. Following the latest LP “Evoke”, they now unveil their brand new single 'Deadly Potential', which features a guest performance from Mirza Radonjica of Siamese - watch the accompanying music video below.
“Deadly Potential is about how everyone is a carrier of badness and how one thing can split friends and family into atoms. A call to look inward and scrutinize one's actions. Because if we simply react instinctively and recklessly, what is left in the end?”, the band muses.
The coming singles will force the listeners to take a clear view, or enlighten them as to where the band perceives we as humans or/and society fails—building our empire around ourselves with a desire and thirst for more while forgetting the people we care about. Unseen Faith invite you to take a stand, by bringing new perspectives to the conversation and debate about cultural differences. In a world of opportunities, it is likely to dwell in our small worlds and bury ourselves inside our own fortress. The new singles are produced and mixed by Chris Kreutzfeldt (Cabal, Ghost Iris) at Badcat Studio.
The first single 'Deadly Potential' featuring Siamese, is already available on all streaming services.
American deathcore mob Lorna Shore releases new single plus age-gated video: "Pain Remains II: After All I've Done, I'll Disappear" - the second part of "The Pain Trilogy"
The next chapter in the epic journey of Lorna Shore is upon us, leading up to the release of new album, Pain Remains (due to be unleashed October 14th via Century Media Records): "Pain Remains II: After All I've Done, I'll Disappear". Currently streaming on all digital platforms, the age-gated video (directed by David Brodsky // http://www.mgenyc.com) can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/JFJ5fF7cbE0
The band comments on "The Pain Trilogy":
"'The Pain Trilogy' is a three-part tale focusing on the stages of grief and vulnerability and exemplifying it through a love story. The first song, 'Pain Remains I: Dancing like Flames' begins with the main character becoming enamoured by the person within his dreams. He decides to turn to this reality as a sense of purpose despite knowing that the closer he gets to his goal, the further it seems to drift away. This leads to the second song, 'Pain Remains II: After All I've Done, I'll Disappear'. This is the part where the person vanishes and the main character struggles to accept the pain. He as well wishes to disappear and seeks to throw it all away.
Lorna Shore supports suicide prevention and support. We encourage all to speak to their issues and spark conversations that help and mend us all. National suicide prevention hotline: 800-273-8255"
Don't miss the final part of the trilogy that will unfold when the album is released on October 14th! In the meantime, fans can also watch the previously released videos below:

New York, USA deathcore band A Wake In Providence have released their mighty new single 'We Are Eternity', taken from their highly-anticipated new record Eternity, to be released 21st October via Unique Leader Records.
The band comment: "We are so excited to bring you, 'We Are Eternity'! This song really brings more of this story to the table and gives you great insight into who The Trinity is and what role they play in this narrative. Thank you to everyone involved with creating this and to you all for checking it out!"
Formed in 2010 from unremarkable beginnings, A Wake In Providence diligently grew to become the renowned and otherworldly force they are today. Originally a heavier-than-your-average deathcore act, the band’s debut 2010 demo and 2012 debut EP Serpents saw them infusing a raw and ruthless take on traditional deathcore with contemporary metallic elements to make something sharp enough to cut its way through the thicket of bland, boring heavy music acts.
While Serpents gained the band notoriety in their local area, it wasn’t until the release of their sophomore EP, Insidious, that the band went from prodigally talented to true rising stars in the heavy music community. Adding a liberal dose of downtempo deathcore to their instrumental stylings, Insidious earned the band global infamy and critical acclaim, as well as tours with some of the underground’s bigger names-including In Dying Arms, Extortionist and Lorna Shore, as well as several smaller solo runs along the East Coast.
Never ones to remain complacent, A Wake In Providence grew once more in 2016, with the addition of Will Ramos (now with Lorna Shore), but also with their drastic stylistic change, omitting their penchant for low, slow downtempo deathcore in favour of a renewed focus on more aggressive, fast and furious traditional deathcore elements with a razor-sharp technical twist. Combining marvellous metallic riffs with crushing breakdowns and shrill, sinister vocals to create an intense onslaught unlike any other band in the heavy music scene, A Wake In Providence are vile enough to make the sewers look clean, and vicious enough to tear the still-beating heart out of the listener's chest.
Now a quartet with new vocalist Adam Mercer and signing with the legendary Unique Leader Records, A Wake In Providence's status looks set to only rise further.

The opening of the next chapter in the epic journey of Lorna Shore is upon us, leading up to the release of Pain Remains, due 14th October. The new single, 'Pain Remains I: Dancing Like Flames', is the first in the trilogy.
On the new single and the upcoming trilogy, the band comment:
“The Pain Trilogy is a three part tale focusing on the stages of grief and vulnerability and exemplifying it through a love story. The first song, 'Pain Remains I: Dancing like Flames', begins with the main character becoming enamoured by the person within his dreams. He decides to turn to this reality as a sense of purpose despite knowing that the closer he gets to his goal, the further it seems to drift away.”
'Pain Remains I: Dancing Likes Flames' comes as the fourth single to be released from Pain Remains, following 'Sun/Eater', 'Into The Earth', and 'Cursed To Die'.
During the summer Lorna Shore crushed at the US edition of Lollapalooza as well as various European festivals including Bloodstock Open Air (UK) and Summer Breeze (DE).

American deathcore band Signs Of The Swarm release their new song and music video for 'Unbridled' today via their new label home Century Media Records.
Purchase and stream the track, HERE, and watch the video, HERE.
On the new single, Signs Of The Swarm state:
"To commemorate our signing with Century Media, we wanted to offer something truly special – ‘Unbridled’. This track is a taste of everything that we have to offer, reaching for new levels of intensity and keeping what makes us SOTS. If you like riffs, blast beats, and breakdowns... don’t skip this one. Lyrically, we want to reach out to our fans from a different perspective in hopes that the song pulls you in and doesn’t let go. Channelling fear, aggression and defeat into a single track, 'Unbridled' is a violent and energetic piece that we expect you to bang your head to."
Just last week, Signs Of The Swarm announced signing to their new label home Century Media Records stating:
"For SOTS, 2021-2022 has been a time of growth and change. We released our latest record last year and knew that we had to hit the road hard. Since that time we’ve performed over 200 times in at least 15 countries, which gave us a very unique opportunity. The band went out searching for the perfect fit to match our vision, and once we met with the Century Media team it was an instant sync. We chose this time to announce our partnership - after we completed our hefty tour schedule around the globe and joined forces with GoodFight MGMT - so that we can bring you the very best that we have to offer. With that said, we are pleased to release our latest single and music video, 'Unbridled' to celebrate this next chapter of Signs of the Swarm! With a bright future in sight, we are proud to be a part of the Century Media family and cannot wait to show you more of what we have been up to."
Pittsburgh’s Signs Of The Swarm aren’t just any band, they’re a once-in-a-generation beacon that radiates the sounds that surrounded them, preserving history by reframing it. On their fourth LP, Absolvere, they’re bleak without being blackened, smashing without being slam, and downtempo as a choice rather than a stylistic confine. And as many of their deathcore peers experiment with adding singing, often gruff in tone, they add a more ethereal style that soothes. The band contrasts that with some of the most brutal moments in their eight-year career, with riffs more punishing than pensive and a rhythm section that frames them in creatively cacophonic ways.
Above it all, they’re utilising vocalist David Simonich's monstrous range in a much fuller capacity than on his debut, 2019's Vital Deprivation. That transitional album found the band experimenting to re-find their footing, which here lands on solid ground through the addition of guitarist Jeff Russo, a former bandmate of Simonich’s Improvidence. The proof is in the placing, with Absolvere landing at #15 on “Current Hard Music Albums,” #21 on “Top New Artist Albums” and #139 on “Heatseekers.” Indeed, sometimes contrast can be a perfect complement, but more often that effect is achieved when paired with something more in-line. So it is when Ben Duerr (Shadow of Intent) and Alex Erian (Despised Icon) join the band for growls and shouts, where Signs Of The Swarm filter their guests’ bands through their own sound. Instead of taking away from their identity, it expands it.
They’re steadily expanding their global reach, too. In the few short months since Absolvere’s release, Signs Of The Swarm have toured with the likes of Fit for an Autopsy, Born of Osiris and Shadow of Intent. Forthcoming domination campaigns of Europe and Australia will be added to their tenure with Aborted, Lorna Shore, Brand of Sacrifice and more. Forget the signs, the swarm is already here, and it’s growing larger and louder every day.
