BEYOND CREATION comment: "We are stoked to premier 'The Inversion' as a first glimpse of the tonal variety we were able to express on our upcoming record 'Algorythm'. Each musician was challenged to step out of his comfort zone to achieve the right vibe for each section of this track and we are confident of the songwriting work involved throughout the song. On the visual side, it was a pleasure to witness the outstanding work of each member of Rubicon's team through every step of the process. We are incredibly happy on how this music video turned out and we're excited for our fans to discover the epic story-line and plot it offers. Each one of us was thrilled to play a role in the scenario of the video and we hope that it opens up more opportunities of this kind for Beyond Creation but also for every metal band out there! We invite all of our fans to get in touch with us through Facebook/Instagram with their feedback, as we're always more than happy to connect with you them all!"

Tue, Aug 14 2018: SYLVAINE

Upcoming release: "Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone"

Release date: Fri, Nov 02 2018, US Fri, Nov 02 2018

SYLVAINE is now premiering the first magical new track of her forthcoming new album 'Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone', which will be released on November 2nd, 2018. Listen to the track below.

The Scandinavian multi-instrumentalist is now streaming "Abeyance" in the form of a music video via the official media partners listed below.

Overdrive (AU)
Power of Metal (DK)
Friedhof Magazine (ES)
Lángoló Gitárok (HU)
Metal Wani (IN)
Eternal Terror (NO)
Ultraje (PT)
Pop Matters (US)

SYLVAINE comments: ""Abeyance” is one of the most diverse and uplifting tracks on 'Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone'. The drums provided by Stéphane 'Neige' Paut, who also composed the bass line for the song, creates a groovy backdrop for a grave message embedded in the music, of humanity’s cruelty towards itself, as well as the inner decay and struggle we face within our human form. The video of 'Abeyance' tells a story of being restricted, held away from what once was and being unable to fight it. The feeling of watching the world and self unravel, without having the means to change it, being held in abeyance."

SYLVAINE has furthermore revealed the artwork for 'Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone', which can be viewed together with the album details below.

Tue, Aug 14 2018: CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX

Upcoming release: "Great Escape"

Release date: Fri, Sep 14 2018, US Fri, Sep 14 2018

CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX are now premiering the second track of their forthcoming new album 'Great Escape', which is slated for release on September 14th, 2018. Listen to the song below!

The eclectic UK rockers are now streaming their stunning new song "Nebulas" via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel at the link here.

Mastermind Justin Greaves comments on the track: "Given the fact that both Belinda and myself are huge animal lovers and animal rights supporters, it has always seemed the right thing to do to make songs about the animals. We did it with our “other” band Se Delan, so when i gave her the demos for Great Escape songs, Belinda got straight back to me with this burning need to write a song for the animals. It completes the song and fits into the thread of the album.

Vocalist Belinda Kordic adds: Often i’m referred to as a “closed book”, which is true I guess, but when it comes to animals and their well-being, I’ll rip my heart out and serve it on a plate. I know we can’t bare the weight of the worlds evil on our shoulders, and we can’t save all of them, the unloved, abused and neglected animals of the world. But I have a tendency to want to do just that and its hard to cope with at times. This song is for them."

Tue, Aug 14 2018: HORRENDOUS

Upcoming release: "Idol"

Release date: Fri, Sep 28 2018, US Fri, Sep 28 2018

HORRENDOUS are now premiering their crushing second track of their forthcoming new album 'Idol', via Metal Hammer UK. The record is slated for release on September 28th, 2018. Listen to the track at the link below.

Check out “The Idolater” here

HORRENDOUS comment: "Idolater," is the most direct expression of malaise on 'Idol,' lyrically honing in on the despotic political figure heads that seem to be coming to power in the Western world. While it is largely a reaction to the current political landscape of the U.S, I also wanted it to extend to past legacies of tyrannical control, whether from church or state, and the social climates that give birth to them. The 'tyrant' of the song, while applicable to our times, is also archetypal, reflecting the age old cycles of power gained through intimidation and fear, and personal agency traded for a (false) sense of security. It all falls in line with the larger theme of the album of relinquishing one's power and self determination to the various Idols that surround us, and questioning our roles in sustaining them.

Musically, the song is the most direct on the album, adhering to a more 'traditional' song structure with a verse and 'chorus' of sorts that anchor the song as it develops and briefly veers off in different musical directions. The music and lyrics are also closely intertwined, with complimentary changes in tone, tempo and dissonance as the lyrical narrative progresses. I always loved songs that are a perfect reflection of the lyrical landscapes within them, where the music is an integral part of the 'story' of a song, and I think this is one of our best examples of it to date."

Tue, Aug 14 2018: KEN MODE

Upcoming release: "Loved"

Release date: Fri, Aug 31 2018, US Fri, Aug 31 2018

KEN mode are now streaming the third track taken from their upcoming album, 'Loved', which has been slated for worldwide release on August 31st, 2018. Check out the track at the link below.

“Not Soulmates” is currently being streamed via Consequence of Sound.

Vocalist / guitarist Jesse Matthewson comments on the track: "The main 'chorus' line, I suppose you could call it, "You're going to continue enjoying this mistake with me", was conceived by Scott's wife. This song is about the many complexities of love and the humour that surrounds its entirety - whether people choose to process it or not. It's got riffs you can throw round-house kicks to and is an ode to the Melvins and Zeni Geva."

On further news, the band as announced a European tour in November/December 2018, with BIRDS IN ROW and COILGUNS.
