"Silence Of The Frail Mind", the new single by Icelandic black / death metal band Show Me Wolves is now available through the below:-
Show Me Wolves is a solo project that was created in February 2015 by Hörður Lúðvíksson, a DIY artist from Reykjavík, Iceland. Hörður has been involved in the Icelandic underground music scene in acts like Offerings, Provoke and Grit Teeth.
The idea behind Show Me Wolves originated from a few songs being recorded at his home studio, which grew as time passed. The project has released two full length albums; the first, "Between Man, God And False Idols“, was released in August 2015 and the second, "The World They Took Over“, was released in January 2016.
Finnish modern metal band Without Warning released their third single and music video Black Venom via Inverse Records on June 9th 2022.
“Black Venom” is an intense story about the definition of evil, manifested in a woman and ready to spread hatred everywhere she goes. Visually the story is brought to life in a horror biohazard surrounding, taking the spectator in the middle of events. The song came along quite fast as Juuso (guitarist) got inspired by the concept of the story, and wanted to bring life to it. It felt as the easiest project so far music wise as the band had a very clear idea of how it would be produced.
“I like to write about my experiences in a metaphoric way, just like I did with Black Venom. I believe in the good in people, but on a rare occasion you might cross paths with someone you wish you didn’t. Someone who lives off of creating chaos and taking everything from you to the last drop. Pure evil. And that’s what spreading the black toxic is about.” states Micha (vocalist).
Finnish post-hardcore ‘violent pop’ metal collective Blind Channel have released their brand new single ‘Don’t Fix Me’, taken from the forthcoming album Lifestyles Of The Sick & Dangerous out July 8th via Century Media Records. The album is available to pre-order here.
‘Don’t Fix Me’ is a huge rock anthem, where mighty riffs and pummelling drums meet synths, captivating harmonies and a frenzied rap from vocalist Niko Moilanen. The accompanying video captures the band on the road during their recent tours across the US and Europe which is available to watch further down.
Regarding the single Blind Channel say:-
“‘Don’t Fix Me’ continues the theme of brokenness, featured on the upcoming album. However, this time we decided to be empowering and uplifting and wrote something people wanna scream while having the craziest time of their lives. This song is the soundtrack for the wildest parties and the cure for the day-after’s hangover.”
‘Don’t Fix Me’ is the latest song to be taken from the band’s upcoming fourth album Lifestyles Of The Sick & Dangerous, which also features the previously released award-winning and multi-million streamed singles including ‘Bad Idea’, ‘Dark Side’, ‘Balboa’ and ‘We Are No Saints’.
Blind Channel were the most successful artist at the recent Finnish Grammy Awards (Emma Gala) last month, where they received six awards, including two for ‘Dark Side’ (‘Song Of The Year’ & ‘Most Streamed Song’). They also were awarded ‘Band Of The Year’, ‘Artist Of The Year’ (by public vote), ‘Rock Of The Year’ and the ‘Export Award’ – the latter testament to their rapidly rising international profile having spent almost the entirety of this year on the road throughout the US, Europe and UK.
Blind Channel have spent 2022 carving an unstoppable path with their astounding live shows and new music. Following a US run with From Ashes To New earlier this year, the band are currently on the road with Electric Callboy across Europe. Blind Channel have been announced for a number of high profile festivals in their homeland this summer before returning to the UK in September for a headline tour.

Explosive. Bombastic. Defiant. Intense. Seething Akira continue to rampage forward with their gloriously turbulent nu-metal sound. Hot off the editorial success of their last album "Dysfunctional Wonderland" and with scheduled appearances at the Heavy Music Awards 2022 on June 5, Download Festival on June 9, and TECH-FEST on July 1st, comes the band's fiery latest single "Punishment Instructions."
"'Punishment Instructions' expresses all facets, whether that be positive or negative, of hope, wish and desire," states Seething Akira. "The message expresses the loss of hope due to the uncontrollable actions of others. Punishment Instructions are the side effects of when these immoral actions are resisted."
"Punishment Instructions" is a hard-hitting metal track that exemplifies everything fans love about the band. As the song's thought-provoking lyrics examine the effects of trying to resist when others are trying to strip all hope away from you, the heavy rhythms, featuring aggressive guitars, coupled with the aggressive vocals, only add fuel to the rebellious firestorm that is Seething Akira. Warning: This single may induce the urge to jump into your nearest mosh pit. Listen wisely, and use as directed.
"Punishment Instructions" is out now from independent multi-genre music label FiXT.
Explosive. Bombastic. Defiant. Intense. Seething Akira have developed a gloriously turbulent sound that is uniquely their own. Founded by vocalists Charlie Bowes and Kit Conrad, Seething Akira are a 6-piece electronic nu-core band hailing from the seafront city of Portsmouth, UK that have been tearing venues apart across Europe with their powerful fusion of genres since 2012.
The band's first full-length album, "Sleepy Skeletor", dropped in 2018 and made it clear that Seething Akira would be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come. In late 2020, the band launched a series of new singles leading up to their second album, the highly anticipated "Dysfunctional Wonderland". With the strength of the band's music and their popularity with fans rocketing skyward, they connected with electronic rock label FiXT and forged a partnership for their future releases.
Seething Akira has been featured on the Rock Hard Spotify editorial list, while their single "Firepower" landed on Kerrang Radio and Scuzz. "I Am The Devil" and "The Islander" were both featured on BBC Introducing, and "The Islander" premiered on Soundsphere Magazine.
At home and on the road, Seething Akira have also put their stamp on staple festivals such as Bloodstock, Victorious, Camden Rocks, and many more while touring with bands like The Qemists and The Algorithm.
The band dropped the latest album "Dysfunctional Wonderland" in late 2021 and plan to begin releasing new singles in mid 2022.
English symphonic folk metal clan Bring To Bear reveal second new single "Time To Burn" with music video
English symphonic folk metal clan Bring To Bear reveal second new single "Time To Burn" with accompanying lyric video.
A powerful start with a tense anticipation is followed by a single growled word - “Ignite”. Guitars lead the way with a strong riff before the drums and bass kicks in for the verse. “Burn” is the call with growls, answered by the sweet tones of clean female vocals. The chorus follows, giving more space to the clean vocals with support from accordion and the power of the metal pack.
The chorus is followed by a playful accordion instrumental like flames dancing, before going back to the call-and-response verse. The second chorus is doubled, reinforcing the message, and ends with the title phrase “It’s time to burn” as the powerful intro comes back heralding the breakdown.
The breakdown is big and seems to have a magnetic pull that gets the listener to head bang with it. Growls return over the breakdown like flames roaring, leading the way to the guitar solo. The solo ends with a feeling of release into the bridge, like the passion spoken of through the lyrics being set free.
The final chorus is followed by an accordion solo and a reintroduction of the dancing flames instrumental with guitars and accordion harmonising this time.
The song’s lyrics are about the passion we feel inside us, the fire within that gives us meaning. We can feel it inside, a powerful force when it is unleashed. It’s time to follow the passion and let the flames rise up within. It’s time to burn.
The single can be found on:
Bring to Bear band members:
Bring To bear is a symphonic folk metal band from England, on an adventure of making metal with meaning and looking to inspire others along the way. The idea came to life during lockdown in May 2020 by long-time friends and bandmates Hristo Nikolov and Ian Tarboton. They quickly put together their first material and set about expanding the clan. One by one the band came together, each with the same desire and a unique set of skills and stories.
Bring To Bear combines the ethereal tones of lead singer Izabela Smyt with the harsh growls of keyboard-accordionist Ian Tarboton, using the raw power of drummer Simon Jones as the backbone for a solid metal pack comprising guitarists Hristo Nikolov and Nik Rotas, and bassist Richard Knight. Guitars swap between lead and rhythm, often play-fighting with accordion, to create strong melodies and plenty of opportunities to head-bang.
Bring To Bear seeks authenticity and meaning through music that gives a feeling of adventure, discovery, and courage. They love the adventure of going after their dreams and inspiring others to do the same. For Bring To Bear this is the music, but what will their music inspire you to do?
The debut EP, "Light and Shadow", contains three songs and was released on 08 October 2021. Two singles followed this - Rising Tide, released on 04 March 2022, and Time to Burn, released on 27 May 2022.
Five-piece metal band Sickseed, are gearing up for the release of their debut LP ‘Goregeous’ – a ten track horror movie tribute album, that will bring the listeners into a dark and gloomy place. Today they present their third and final single ‘Facehugged’ - a tribute to Ridley Scott's 'Alien' & James Cameron's 'Aliens', but also to the one and only Bill Paxton. Check out the accompanying lyric video above.
Vocalist Dennis Pedersen muses:-
“'Facehugged' pays homage to the first two installments of the 'Alien' franchise, and was written to honour the memory of the legendary Bill Paxton, may he rest in peace! Ridley Scott made history with Alien in ‘79, and James Cameron took the story of Ellen Louise Ripley and the terrifying Xenomorph to a whole new level with the release of Aliens in ‘86. You would be hard pressed to find a more impactful creature in movie history. With 'Facehugged', we attempted to match the aggressive nature of the Xenomorph by delivering a track that mixes speedy, atmospheric and heavy parts into one chronicle, told from the perspective of a facehugger victim and the horrors that bursts from his chest”,
Since being formed, the band has released their EP ‘The Saints of Hatred’ (2010) and played countless shows on the Danish underground metal scene with bands such as Illdisposed, Nothing Noble, a.o. After over a decade of line-up changes and a hiatus, they are now back and, more than ever, ready to present their new album ‘Goregeous’. The upcoming full-length album has been produced by Tue Madsen and is set to be released on June 10.
The new single 'Facehugged' is already available on all streaming services.
Thirst of Faust is a Death Metal band all the way from Kolkata, India. Keeping storytelling in the forefront, the band tries to incorporate technical guitarworks mixed with heavy grooves and powerful drumming. Musically experimental, the band strives to bring together emotional, yet brutal music and folklore appealing to both metal enthusiasts and as well as those who appreciate the lore of music.
The newest track "Aftermath", which follows the sophomore track "Mephisto" presents brutal dark torment, heard through the music of the band itself. Aiming to take the listeners on a sonic adventure through literature and periods, the band released "Mephisto" which marked the beginning of an epic interpretation of the ever famous tale of Faustus by Goethe. The upcoming single "Aftermath" dots the conclusion of the epiphany faced by Faustus from the perspective of the band, delving deep into a mind riddled with schizophrenia. "Aftermath" recreates the troubled mind through uncanny guitars and erratic vocals from the entire band.
Through their music, Thirst of Faust batters the listener both musically and lyrically, blast beats set the pace for epic lyrics presented in both guttural and clean fashion that focus on relatable situations.
The band shares their process:
"After developing the frightening tale of the rise to power of Faust in "Mephisto", "Aftermath" depicts the downfall of our protagonist in physical, emotional and mental aspects. Each song acts as a chapter in our musical story. The lyrics represent personal events and emotions and then we wrap these experiences through our eerie music".
"It's a much-awaited conclusion to an epic tale!" - Robby Dutta (Vocalist)
Atmospheric and driving, the medley of blast beats, chugging bass, and heavily distorted solos will be both intense and immersive. Thirst of Faust is recommended for fans of Alkaloid, Alluvial, Death and Cynic (Progressive/Technical Death Metal in general).

French post metal band Cancel The Apocalypse releases their second album "Terminus Stairway" in June 10th 2022. Now they have released second single "Where is Soledad?" from the upcoming album.
Band backgrounds the new single:
"'Where is Soledad?' is a questioning about loneliness and loss of bearings in industrialized societies. Soledad (whose nationality we don't really know) personifies this lonely being in search of meaning who seeks to escape from her mental shackles. Music is the meeting of several classical and metal influences. The classical guitar's sweetness, the cello's deep tone, the melodious and sometimes flayed voice and the ever looming storm of the drums are all mixed together. The result is a surprising equilibrium that does not leave you indifferent. We have fun listening to the baroque themes mixed with contemporary riffs. Everything here underlines the emotions of Soledad and her inner world."
Cancel The Apocalypse is a bridge between cultures and ages. It started simply: Audrey and Arnaud, graduates of Bordeaux conservatoire and baroque specialists, imagine a new hybrid style, blending today’ styles.
They are under the charm of the singer of My Own Private Alaska who is performing in Nimes arenas as opening act for Metallica. Matthieu will be the singer of the band. And Karol of Gorod, another well known artist of the French metal scene, will join him at the drums. The press, specialized and main stream, takes immediate notice of this new vibe, with Telerama awarding them fff. Reviews acclaiming the first opus keep coming, with the tour starting in Frame, then Germany and ending in a blaze of glory with the Fusion Festival. The warm welcome they received allows the quartet to let its ambition and emotions roam free.
Amidst the standardized engineered harmonies of the self congratulating music industry, Cancel the Apocalypse emerges as a sparkling oasis, soothing yet disturbing. The result is both avant-garde and unifying. Even more melodious and deep, "terminus stairway" continues the quest initiated by its predecessor "our own democracy". Audrey’s cello has never been so rich and deep, where Arnaud’s melodies (guitar and piano) transcend baroque and blend into the whole classical repertoire. The voice becomes intimately true, deep and self assured, sensitive yet raw, until it reaches its saturated climax, supported by Karol's rich and elegant style. His international experience boosts the combo thanks to his guts strike and his intent.
This new world, imagined by the quartet, is driven by new human, social and political codes, in the image of its members. A memoir on anarchy in the XX's century music, activism with Sea Shepherd, study of the vision of French intellectuals on Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, commitment to the prevention of suicide among young people. Values are not an empty word at Cancel The Apocalypse. Their music is the reflect of this positive reflection momentum and humanist action that they have been able to create among themselves, for their loved ones, their children, which they now wish to transmit to the world.
“Resilience as the highest gii that a man can have”.
