Acaro Calling It Quits

Massachusetts metal outfit Acaro has issued the following announcement about deciding to call it quits:

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce the end of Acaro as an active band. Life has taken us to different paths making it impossible to keep writing music together and tour.

"We are a family and we fully support each other’s decisions. There is absolutely nothing but love and friendship between us. We will be booking one last show for the foreseeable future and it will be announced shortly.

"It’s impossible to put our feelings into words… all we can say is THANK YOU all for being part of our family and rocking out, headbanging, dancing and hanging out with us at our shows.

"We will carry those memories with us forever. We love you and our gratitude toward you is endless." More...

Killswitch Engage: Trapped Between Two Eras?

In the wake of Killswitch Engage’s second self-titled album – fifth overall – in 2009, I heard the trajectory of the band’s career summed thusly:

“If Killswitch Engage were a transsexual, ‘The End Of Heartache’ [2004] would be the cross-dressing phase, ‘As Daylight Dies’ [2006] would be the transition phase, and ‘KsE II’ would be the full transformation into a woman.” More...

Unearthing The Metal Underground In Boston

Each week in Unearthing the Metal Underground, we'll be putting a few quality underground bands in the spotlight in an attempt to get the word out about them. This week, we'll weigh in on the scene around Boston, Massachusetts.

Boston has been my home all my life. Back in 2006 when I first started Nefarious Realm Productions, I worked with local bands, promoting and booking shows. It set the foundation of what NRP is today. Boston has an unbelievable scene spanning all genres. Most people only think of the heavy weights like Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, fast-rising Revocation, etc., but there lies a wealth of bands that are just mind-blowing. Lunglust, Ramming Speed, Sexcrement, The Summoned, Abnormality, Dysentery, Phantom Glue, Give Zombies The Vote, Morne, Sonic Pulse... I could go on and on but Metal Underground.com has limited me to three, and I'm going to span the sub-genres here. Hang on to your pants, you're going for a ride!

Widow Sunday

This "dance metal" outfit is sure to get you moving, that be breaking' faces or shakin' your booty. Each member brings distinct influences to the table, fusing elements of death metal, groove metal, hardcore, and electronica. Think of Meshuggah, Lamb of God, Bury Your Dead, and The Browning all smashed together.

The five-piece brings quite a live show with their stage antics and their "have fun" attitude. Widow Sunday just recently released a new EP earlier this summer and are already writing for a followup full length to their 2010 debut, 'In These Rusted Veins.' Below is a video for "Blood Money" from 'ITRV' and a live clip of "The Wave" which appears on the new EP, 'Dance Metal." For more on the band, check out their Facebook.
