Italian Metalcore crew Tonight We Stand & Italian rapper Lavinia Viscus release suicide prevention track
Italian metal quintet Tonight We Stand are back with a new lyric video and single called 'Hollowgrams' featuring rapper/hip hop artist Lavinia Viscuso. Visually, the video looks like supplemental content for an R.L Stine Goosebumps book, but the song actually has a darker, more serious tone.

ALSO AVAILABLE ON SPOTIFY
Tonight We Stand states:-
"'Hollowgrams' talks about the emotional struggles that many artists face and it addresses suicide / depression. With this song, we wanted to raise suicide awareness for the sake of anyone who has succumbed to the most insurmountable mental anguish. We must look at suicide as what it is: a preventable outcome of a treatable illness."
"Hollowgrams" was mixed by Betraying The Martyrs guitarist Lucas D’angelo and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic (Architects, Periphery).
Tonight We Stand released their debut EP Redemption in 2016 on Sliptrick Records, which was awarded the "Best Underground Release" by Rock Hard Italy. The four song offering was produced and mixed at Solid Ground Recording Studio, and mastered by Andrea Fusini, as was their 2017 single "I Will Rise, You'll Fade Away."

Japanese Nu / Rap Metal superstars Man With A Mission release amazing 'Fly Again 2019' video
Japanese superstars Man With A Mission have announced the release of their brand new single ‘Fly Again 2019’. The band have released an amazing video for the song, filmed at their recent 50,000 capacity headline show at the Hanshin Koshien Stadium, capturing the huge scale of the Japanese rock phenomenon and their rapturous following.
Originally released as the B-side of their debut single in Japan in 2011, ‘Fly Again’ was quick to turn into a tearaway hit for Man With A Mission in their homeland. It is a massive live favourite with fans of the stadium rock stars and the phenomenal demand for the track has not let up in eight years. And now, due to its continued stature as a huge live hit with their fans around the world, the song has been chosen to be a featured track in tonight’s episode (April 29th) of the TV show Radiation House, adapted from the hit manga series.
Man With A Mission have now re-recorded it for an international release proper as ‘FLY AGAIN 2019’; a hi-octane cut with danceable rock riffs, vinyl scratching and one of the most addictive and inescapable choruses ever to come out of Asia.
Having now sold out a number of headline tours in the UK following the release of their massively acclaimed debut international album "Chasing The Horizon" last year, the band return this summer to play Download Festival on June 14th.
‘Fly Again 2019’ is available to stream on YouTube now, and will be made available to download and listen on all streaming platforms from May 10th worldwide.

Man With A Mission were recently featured as cover stars of Rock Sound Magazine and have been receiving Radio 1 support. Following their numerous sell out stadium tours in their home country, they have also completed headline tours of the UK, Europe and US.
The band were met by a rapturous response from fans when they played Reading & Leeds Festival last year for the first time to an overflowing tent.
Ohio's The World I Knew bring 'Trap Metal' to the fore with 'Piecefull' music video; trance-hip hop metalcore
Trap Metal Band The World I Knew Release New Music Video for "Piecefull" - WATCH IT HERE
Cincinnati-based The World I Knew bring a distinct and unapologetic vibe to the metalcore scene. Fusing together elements of electro, hip-hop and chest-pounding breakdowns, the quintet has released their latest single and music video "Piecefull."
"'Piecefull' is about pretenders," says vocalist Wesley Merritt. "Those that will pretend to be there for you and have your back as long as things are going well for them, and what happens to them once they've been exposed. We take loyalty very seriously, loyalty is everything."
"Piecefull" starts with Merritt acting as his own hype man before launching into a full-on lyrical beatdown. The video was directed by Josh Emerick and Ross Thiesen, shot in a Columbus, OH at The Continent.
The World I Knew have been striving to create music without boundaries or limitations since their formation in 2014 and the release of their debut single "Fuck a 9-5." The group's uncanny ability to seamlessly engage with audiences across the punk/metal/rap/rock scene makes them an attractive group to follow in 2019.
Listen to "Piecefull" now on Spotify.

Australian 'Rapcore' horde The Weight Of Silence cover Big Boi's "Shutterbugg" with new music video
Watch The New Music Video Exclusively on idobi Radio
Australian metalcore quartet The Weight Of Silence has released their new rap cover from Big Boi's (Outkast) single "Shutterbugg" with a new music video.
Vocalist, Jacob Pedersen commented on why the band choose this cover saying, "We've been quite influenced by hip-hop whilst writing the the new record and we decided that, a classic hip-hop cover would be the perfect bridge or transition into the newer sound we're writing. We're very excited about the release of "Shutterbugg" but, what's to come soon after is what we're most excited for."
While the band proves their love for hip-hop, they also claim a new shift in their modern metalcore sound, incorporating a range of styles from hip-hop to deathcore, which hints at a new direction for their upcoming sophomore release.

The highly controversial and iconic, Body Count (featuring Ice-T on vocals), has officially inked a world-wide deal with Century Media Records and will begin tracking their highly anticipated new, full-length offering with Will Putney (Miss May I, Upon A Burning Body). Putney also tracked the group’s last effort, Manslaughter, which caught the entire genre’s immediate attention with its sheer abrasiveness and unabashed brutality.
Ice- T states:
"It’s cool to be a member of The Century Label Group alongside such a lot of well-established metal artists. With our last album Manslaughter, we tested the waters and got a great response from the fans and critics. Now it’s time to go kill it and make a more aggressive album and keep the Body CountT style intact. Producer, Will Putney (Miss May I, Upon A Burning Body), is like a member of the band and has an excellent ear. He’s a great producer because he captures the true essence of our band’s sound. Once we are done writing the song it’s his job to step in and make it sound better. He helps move the record in the right direction, were anticipating working with him again. “Once the records done, were going to shoot a lot of music videos and perform spot-dates on certain tests, etc.”
This is the group that dropped hip-hop attitude into heavy metal and hard rock music before Rage Against The Machine, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and Hollywood Undead made records, despite nary an ounce of rapping over their mosh-pit inducing songs. Body Count is a full on metal band, fronted by a legendary rapper who drops knowledge, violent stories and verbal middle fingers, with a bellowing growl descended from some of punk rock’s most pissed off screamers.
Ice-T and co-founder / lead guitarist Ernie C have perfected their mix of thrash, punk and bottom heavy doom across five albums, hitting a zenith with the unstoppable Manslaughter, backed by bassist/songwriter Vincent Price (with Body Count now for nearly 15 years), drummer Ill Will (joined in 2009) and new guitarist Juan Garcia of Evildead. They embody the monumental Southern California tradition of street born punk bands like Suicidal Tendencies combined with the aggressive aural napalm of Slayer. From the punk bite of their gold debut through the metallic triumph of Born Dead (1994), Violent Demise: The Last Days (1997) and Murder 4 Hire (2006), to the all encompassing Body Count vibe of Manslaughter, which merges the strengths of the band’s entire catalogue.
Driven by the same iconoclastic, anti-authoritarian and pimp-turned-poet mentality that made Ice-T a gangster rap pioneer, a platinum artist from the streets and a household name in film and television before “rapper / actor” was a commonly used term, Body Count flipped the script with the same tenacity when they bum-rushed heavy metal. The first rumblings of Body Count were heard in the eponymous song unleashed on Ice-T’s gigantic O.G.: Original Gangster album in 1991, which hit stores just two months after Ice’s first major movie role in the modern crime classic, “New Jack City.” The fierce thrash of the “Body Count” anthem put people on notice that the Megadeth cap Ice-T wore on MTV wasn’t for show: aggressive heavy metal and hardcore is in his blood.
