Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 31

We’re changing things up this week on the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast. We’ve heard your “I thought this was supposed to be underground!” cries loud and clear, which is why we’ve decided to shut up about Slipknot. For now.

Instead, we’re inviting all unsigned metal and hard rock bands to submit songs to podcast@metalunderground.com, which we’ll feature as intro and outro music. A brief plug will accompany the tunes, so help us keep things underground by helping us help you expose yourself. Not in THAT way.

This week features two songs, “Disconnect” and “Moving Forward,” from Lynchburg, Virginia rockers SingleSide. The tracks appear on the group’s full-length album “Moving Forward” (reviewed here). SingleSide is currently at work on a new album.

Also, if you live in or near South Florida, or have friends there, don’t forget to throw in for our upcoming ticket giveaways through Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale. The first is for The Black Dahlia Murder (supported by Suicide Silence) on Monday, October 13th, followed by Attila (supported by Crown The Empire and Like Moths To Flames) on Friday, November 14th. If interested, please submit your full name matching your ID to the email address above, with one (or both) of the headlining acts in the subject heading.

Next, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) uses Fear Factory’s recent signing to Nuclear Blast as an opportunity to reflect on the past, bygone greatness of Roadrunner Records, once the standard bearer in all things metal, now a corporate husk of its former glorious self.

[CORRECTION: Mike mistakenly cites Machine Head as still being signed to Roadrunner. They, too, are now in fact signed to Nuclear Blast. He does not regret the error, because the truth only bolsters his point. Stay tuned to hear his full thoughts.]

Finally, co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) reacts to recent, admittedly vague, statements by Behemoth leader Adam “Nergal” Darski regarding the future of his band, and has some fun speculating on what might happen down the line.

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 30

Before we summarize this week’s MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast, your fabulous co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure), who rather enjoys referring to himself in the third person, is about to lazily copy and paste an important notice from last week… and the week before.

“We,” meaning Token Hispanic co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead), are hosting two upcoming ticket giveaways through Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. First comes The Black Dahlia Murder (supported by Suicide Silence) on Monday, October 13th, followed by Attila (supported by Crown The Empire and Like Moths To Flames) on Friday, November 14th.

If interested, please fire an email to podcast@metalunderground.com with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading and your full name (matching your ID) in the message body.

Additionally, if you’re an unsigned metal band with a kickass song you’d like to hear featured as our weekly intro music, we’d like to hear it! Please contact us via the email address above.

Kicking off this week’s topics, Mike relays the recent announcement by Swedish death metallers Bloodbath regarding the upcoming fourth studio album “Grand Morbid Funeral,” due out November 17th on Peaceville Records. He also shares some thoughts concerning the group’s as-yet-unidentified new vocalist, so pay attention.

Next, it’s - put a sock in it - more Slipknot. Hey, activity in the Iowan legends’ camp is newsworthy, so we’re going to discuss it. This sour little tidbit revolves around the band’s revelation that percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan is designing two identical masks for the new rhythm section, deliberately distinct from the rest. Whether this bit of ritualistic “othering” is the start of a Newstedian hazing campaign is yet to be determined.

Bummed about the disappointing new In Flames album? So were we. Which is why this week we’re overjoyed to gush about “Exit Wounds,” the ripping, thrashing, and successful return to form by The Haunted, a Swedish band that’s done what most of us wish In Flames had. Stay tuned to hear our full thoughts; we hope you agree!

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 29

Break out your tissue box and keep those cyanide tablets handy (just in case): you’re in for a bummed-out train wreck of an episode this week on the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast. Stay tuned to the end, however, to see if your opinions match up with those of your silver-tongued co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure).

Before we begin, yet another reminder of our upcoming ticket giveaways at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. First comes The Black Dahlia Murder (supported by Suicide Silence) on Monday, October 13th, followed by Attila (supported by Crown The Empire and Like Moths To Flames) on Friday, November 14th.

If interested, please fire an email to podcast@metalunderground.com with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading and your full name (matching your ID) in the message body.

Additionally, if you’re an unsigned metal band with a kickass song you’d like to hear featured as our weekly intro music, we’d like to hear it! Please contact us via the email address above.

Now, time to get depressed. Mike bids solemn farewell to an underrated talent in the global metal underground: Tobias Graf, founding drummer of German melodic/symphonic death metal group Deadlock, who this week passed away for undisclosed reasons at the young age of 35. Graf left the band in April of this year, but played on all releases since the band’s 1997 formation.

Next… here come the Thought Police! We wish it were a joke, but a Kentucky youth has indeed been arrested and charged with domestic terrorism threats… for posting Exodus lyrics on Facebook. The Bay Area thrashers’ 2010 album “Exhibit B: The Human Condition” featured a song titled “Class Dismissed: A Hate Primer,” which told of the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting spree through the eyes of the deranged killer. The absurdity of this incident speaks for itself, but that doesn't stop us from commenting on it.

We all saw this coming over the course of the week, but still, it seemed to happen so damn fast. In the ultimate case of déjà vu, frontman Mark Hunter of Chimaira has been completely deserted by his bandmates en masse for the second time in three years. This time, he’s decided to throw in the towel, effectively putting an end to fifteen years and seven albums of cutting-edge American metal. Stay tuned for our thoughts on the matter.

Finally, we react to Swedish metal veterans In Flames’ new studio album “Siren Charms,” due for a September 9th release and currently streaming. Considering our devotion to this band through thick and thin over the years, our frustration in discussing this lackluster and disappointing new release is palpable, and it ain’t pretty.

If you make it through this episode without losing the will to live, then by all means, subscribe via iTunes and RSS feed. We hope to bring you some happier thoughts soon!

Stay glued to our Official Podcast, MetalUndergrounders - we’re going to keep reminding you of our upcoming ticket giveaways at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

First come The Black Dahlia Murder and Suicide Silence on Monday, October 13th, followed by Attila, Crown The Empire, and Like Moths To Flames on Friday, November 14th.

If some of this stuff is too “scene” for you, or if you live nowhere near Florida, then share this information on social media for your friends. The further we spread it, the more ticket giveaways we can launch elsewhere, perhaps for YOUR favorite bands. You elitist prick.

Otherwise, for those able and willing to make it, fire an email to podcast@metalunderground.com with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading, and your full name matching your ID in the message body.

Now, on to this week’s topics. Co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) discuss some disappointing news: the impending hiatus of long-running Massachusetts metal crew Shadows Fall. After seven albums and over a full decade of worldwide touring, various factors have compelled the guys to hang up the spurs indefinitely.

Next, a happier subject, if murder, cruelty, and icepick lobotomies are your idea of a good time. If not, then you can always ignore the outrageous lyrics and enjoy the musical brutality, because death metal classics Cannibal Corpse are returning with a new album, “A Skeletal Domain,” the band’s thirteenth. Mike received an early promo and is eager to tell you all about it.

Finally - and you probably knew this was coming, so shut your trap and listen if you don’t like it; you might learn something - we discuss the latest Slipknot news (actual news, not gossip). The Iowan progenitors of the “American New Wave” of heavy metal have at long last revealed all pertinent details of their upcoming album “5: The Gray Chapter,” as well as unleashed a new single, “The Devil In I.” Stay tuned for our variety of personal reactions to these developments.

We may be the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast - the operative word being “metal” - but that doesn't mean we’re above shamelessly promoting some “FedoraCore” when it suits our interests.

That’s right, boys and girls: this week we’re launching another ticket giveaway for Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In addition to The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence and friends on Monday, October 13th, we invite you to check out Attila, Crown The Empire, and Like Moths To Flames on Friday, November 14th.

If interested, submit an email to podcast@metalunderground.com with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading, and your full name matching your ID in the email body. Listen in with bated breath as co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) fills in the rest of the details.

Next, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) offers a gushing sneak-peek reaction to one of the year’s most anticipated metal albums: “The Singularity (Phase I - Neohumanity)” by Swedish death-prog powerhouse Scar Symmetry. He’s convinced it will monopolize many a year-end favorites list, and urges fans (Kevin included) who may have lost interest after the loss of former superhuman vocalist Christian Alvestam to reconsider. The latter incarnation of Scar Symmetry has truly come into its own. The first of a planned concept trilogy, “Neohumanity” drops in North America on Tuesday, October 14th.

Finally, in another round of his “Miami Metalhead Problems” saga, Kevin relates an epic personal concert misadventure involving the bands Erra and Reflections. We’ve all had them, we’ve all struggled and bled to make it to see our favorite bands, and every now and then, something unique and memorable occurs along the way that we wouldn’t have traded for all the well-timed, well-organized shows in the world.

Tune in here to check out Kevin’s story, Mike’s review, and more, and don’t forget to subscribe via iTunes and/or RSS feed. Enjoy!

Nuclear Blast posted the following press release:

"Ohio based metalcore quintett LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES just signed an European record deal with Nuclear Blast Records.

"Commented singer and mainman Chris Roetter: 'We are very excited to have our debut album, 'When We Don't Exist,' released by Nuclear Blast in Europe. Their history of signing incredibly heavy bands combined with some of their more recent signings excites us greatly. We cannot wait to come over to Europe in support of the album, and are thankful to have a label there who will ensure our music is heard!'

" 'Welcome to the fold, boys!" states the Nuclear Blast headquarter. 'We're proud to work with LMTF from now on. Their EP already blew us away; but their debut album simply kicks even more ass. A lot more varied, a lot more matured and a real inferno of modern metalcore. Even if there's a lot of melody to LMTFs sound, the band definitely focusses on heavy riffing and brutal breakdowns. Watch out!' "
