Terror‘s new video for the first single from their upcoming album is streaming via Alternative Press.
Defeater has a new video. Yes, it’s still inspired by the early 20th century american folklore and it’s still very emo influenced but it’s a good song.
Not only did Nothing just signed to Thursday frontman’s label Collect Records, they also just released a video for their cover of Nirvana‘s Something in the way. Now, it’s not as intimate and claustrophobic as the original, but it’s still a very strong cover.

If you were worried that Fear Factory would change, don’t. It’s Fear Factory who should be worried of rehashing the same lyrics and riffs in 2015.

Gallows‘ recording session for the BBC is now streaming.
« My death metal bring the shark to the boat, damn right, it’s better than yours… »
Yes, a shark specialist is using Darkest Hour‘s music to call sharks and it’s working. Now, you might get all nerdy in the comment and tell me that Darkest Hour is a metalcore band, but you can’t deny that they are mostly a early In Flames‘ inspired band with no mosh part. Therefore, they can stand proudly in the good part of the melodic death metal category. And, yes, I was also hopping that they were using Cannibal Corpse to communicate with sharks, but we can all dream…
Look’s like Korn‘s idea of a remix is adding guitar to a track so this is what they did with Rihanna‘s new single. Honestly, this is not a completely bad idea, but it could have been better if the riffs didn’t overshadow the vocals.
Conan O’Brian was at comic con and spoofed the guitar player from Mad Max: Fury Road for his intro. Impressive and funny. Too bad that he and Chris Hardwick decided to make a stupid joke about Caitlyn Jenner during their segment.
Yes, some bands are still trying to « make it » in the music business by wearing costumes… Would it surprise you that they are signed to Victory Records?
