_Moving another step closer to the release date of Dew Scented's 'Icarus' on July 30th in the UK, Metalsucks are offering a worldwide online premiere of a lyric-video for the song 'Storm Within' off the new album. Check it out here.
Dew Scented guitarist and songwriter Marvin Vriesde checked in to comment about the track as follows:
"I really dig how the riffs and drums in 'Storm Within', have almost a mechanical feel to them. I thought it would be cool for Dew-Scented to do a heavy double bass driven song with a lot of heavy, chugging guitars. So I took the chance to make it happen. The heavy character of the song also allowed Leif to do some deeper vocals. The deep vocals fit the song perfectly and add a bit of extra dynamic to the album. Chances are, that this song is gonna go down really well when we play it live".
'Icarus' will be released as a limited first edition Digipak including 3 bonus tracks as well as on vinyl (black and limited coloured versions) on July, 30th via Metal Blade Records in the UK!
02. Sworn to Obey
03. Thrown to the Lions
04. Storm Within
05. Gleaming Like Silver
06. By My Own Hand
07. The Fall of Man

_One of Montreal’s heaviest and most aggressive metal bands, Dark Century, whom will be performing at this year's Heavy MTL after winning the fest's battle of the bands are now exclusively streaming their new single 'Kill The Crowd' on SMNnews.com at the following location.
Gearing up to release their second album, a follow up to their 2008 debut, later this year, Dark Century will be giving audiences a preview of their new sound while delivering their standard unrivaled live show when they travel the Great North from East to West, kicking off in Ottawa on July 20 at The Brass Monkey.

August 11, 2012 - Heavy MTL Fest - Montreal, QC BIO:
“One of the main differences is the fact that there is a second guitarist in the band now. This brings harmonies and solos that were not present before. The way we are recording is also different and our gear has evolved over the time. This time around we are also working with Chris Donaldson,” says guitarist Éric Duranleau.
“All in all, we are taking a big step from the previous album in order to put out something that sounds heavier, more aggressive and more in your face. We keep it simple and efficient. We are not reinventing the wheel. It is the logic evolution for us from Days Of The Mosh.”
With an unrivalled live show accompanying their music – “We like to bring the party on stage, we’ll throw ourselves around for the whole set and often feel it for a few days. When you come see a show that has Dark Century on the bill, you’ll get exactly that: a show” – it’s no wonder Dark Century was one of the two finalists at the Heavy MTL Battle of the Bands, winning the chance to play Heavy MTL this summer.
As Duranleau puts it, “Dark Century is bacon. It’s greasy, fat and crunchy and it is an essential element of any unbalanced diet!
