"For this one we stepped up the production a bit from our previous videos. Apart from a great performance by the band, it also features acting by Sabina Melander. Her presence adds a lot of emotion to this video. All this is filmed by our friend Therese Andersson, that we have worked with many times before on previous projects. The story of the video follows the theme of the lyrics in the song, but also leaves room for interpretation by the viewer."
Tool celebrates their third consecutive #1 debut on Billboard’s Top 200, with Fear Inoculum (RCA Records) reigning over the U.S. sales charts, selling 270,000 units.
The news of Fear Inoculum’s impressive debut comes amidst news stories of the album release being met by lengthy lines at retailers as music lovers clamoured to get a copy of the limited edition, physical version of the CD. The spectacular, groundbreaking packaging boasts a 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, charging cable, 2 watt speaker, a 36-page booklet and a digital download card. The Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) released a rare statement, describing the event-like album release:-
“Several stores had well-attended midnight sales on Thursday (it was my store's first midnight sale in 10 years). When we returned to work on Friday morning, there were lines at the door… the TOOL release was the biggest thing to hit retail in years.”
The success wasn’t isolated to the U.S., with the album debuting at #1 in Australia, Norway, New Zealand, and Belgium, as well as Top 5 debuts in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Ireland, Italy and Finland.
Hollow Thoughts is an alternative-metal band emerging from Kuopio, Finland. The band has already gained attention from heavy music media's with earlier singles released via Inverse Records: Half Deceased (2018) and Scarred Generations (2019) and now, the third single Path turns the course towards even more melodic and hook-filled direction.

Listen to the single:
The band comments on the new single:
"Our third single Path is an exiting and new thing for us because it’s the first song that we shot a music video for. Themes of the song are pretty deep and dark which is typical for us but there’s also a certain sense of hopefulness as well. The song is in a sense a story about seeking the right way and letting go of the things that keep us from finding it. Video on the other hand underlines the less obvious gloomy undertone that is inevitably present when seeking a new course for life. In the end anxiety gets the better of the main character so there are no happy endings in this story."

Formed in early 2019 by long time friends Kyle Mortiss and Morgan Weeds with the desire to bring a fresh type of Nu Metal into the world of music, the duo quickly started looking for musicians to round out the band. Kyle recruited former band mate Christian Elvins on rhythm guitar and long time friend Chris Watkins on bass and then after auditioning drummers, deciding on Luke Hill, former Hells Bells and Body Harvest beats man.
After writing a single and 5 other tracks which would constitute their debut EP, Red Flag, they hit the studio with Jeff Rose (Bullet For My Valentine, Trivium, Glamour Of The Kill, Wreckage Of Society, Etc) to record the resulting tracks. On completion of the recording, the band parted with rhythm guitarist Christian Elvins and bassist Chris Watkins, and they were replaced with Kyle Zehtabi on rhythm guitar and Matthew Hulin on bass finally forming the current solid line-up of Malicious Inc..
Having signed with Sliptrick Records, the group will be releasing the Red Flag EP soon with the single Bone & Mortar preceding that on September 20th …but they are not resting on their laurels just yet. Malicious Inc. are already working on follow up material for what will be their debut album.
In preparation for these releases, they will be playing a preview show on August 25th at Taboo Nightclub in Bristol (Club night with Ghetto Viking Music and Clothing afterwards).

Boston based Alternative Progressive Metal Carpathia has released their hotly anticipated new EP, 1912.
The band states that:-
"1912 the EP is the culmination of three years of growth and hard work, loss and repair once as a band and now, as a family.”
A band is not created solely from a group of people deciding to get into a room and write music together, it's not that simple. Once you've found that 'sound', it becomes impossible to ignore that you're now bound to these songs you find yourself pouring every last drop of blood, sweat, and tears into. You will, quite literally, fight for them. It is with those individuals that make up a truly unique and inspiring band. Carpathia and its members have a history, and it all started with Bobby Drinkwater. As an East Boston, Massachusetts native, Bobby has been consistently involved in music, and in 2016 started a nameless band with long term goals. Bobby keeps the conversations short, but has so much to say behind his instruments. Bobby plays multiple instruments including guitar, violin, piano, and drums. Bobby first found co-member Jason Barsotti to join his new project.
Born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts, Jason first picked up his drum sticks at the age of 10, and his long term practice has lead him to a fast paced, hard hitting sound that resonates. Jason's humble and pleasant personality quickly takes a back-seat when he steps behind his drum-kit. Bobby had continued his search in bandmates close to home when joining forces with Andrew Miller, the two had met and worked together in a previous project back in 2014. Andrew is from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but has resided in Lynn, Massachusetts since 2013. Throughout Andrew's life he has been surrounded by family and friends who have been hitting stages in music and comedy. It is no wonder that Andrew's charismatic humour filled personality would follow in similar footsteps. Andrew has played guitar long term in a number of bands both in North Carolina, and Massachusetts.
He had transitioned to playing bass in 2013 for a previous project and found his own unique sound in the process. These three musicians had wrote and played music together between 2016 and 2017 as an instrumental band while trailing a number of potential vocalists. Finally, in January 2017, Samantha Alice of North Kingstown, Rhode Island joined as the last vital part of this project. Samantha brought her strong vocal skills and even stronger personality to the group. Samantha's history in singing has taken her from talent competitions to all state choir, and beyond. Samantha was first approached by Bobby after meeting at a local show and sparked an interest in trying out for his new project. It took no time at all for the solidification of this band to come to completion and Carpathia was officially named as such on April 22, of 2017.
