Stray From The Path Releases "Talking Tragedy"

Stray From The Path has penned a new song, "Talking Tragedy," to benefit The Ghost Inside as the members of that band recover from their horrific November 2015 bus accident.

Stray From The Path’s guitar player Tom Williams comments: “We have been touring for the better part of our career. Our first national tour was with The Warriors, Elysia and The Ghost Inside (tour was sick). It was one of The Ghost Inside's first national tours as well, with bands that were big names to us, and we did it together. This was back in 2008, and we've remained best friends ever since. We've toured the world together, we've shared a bus together on Warped Tour, Vigil sang on two of our records, we did a lot.

"When they crashed, we were in Europe and we were about to go on stage. We couldn't care less about playing, because we weren't sure if the people that were very close to us were alive or not. Right before our set, I got a call from Zach's phone and it was Jim. He grabbed a random phone on his way to the ambulance, and told us to spread the word that right now they were alive, but people have been airlifted to the hospital and that’s all he knew.

"By now, everyone knows this story. What makes this story special is the fact that all of these people came together and got their backs. Bands that were friends with TGI, bands that have never met them before and complete strangers who held that band so dear to their hearts were giving their hard earned money to support The Ghost Inside. It’s that sense of community that makes our music scene so special, and I’m glad it lived up to our expectations. More...

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 40

This week on the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast, we bring you yet another band hailing from Dayton, Ohio. This time it’s Four Star Revival, a four-piece Christian outfit dedicated to spreading the Good News not through screamo/hardcore - as has become inexplicably and irritatingly custom - but through an invigorating blend of hard rock, traditional and power metal.

Debut album “Knights Of The Revival” is out now, and we are proud to present and discuss the song “Hold On,” followed by an airing of “Red” at our sign-off.

Co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) has another ticket giveaway for Fort Lauderdale’s Revolution Live to announce, so tune in to hear the details. He also is eager to report on his experience at last month’s giveaway concert featuring The Ghost Inside, Every Time I Die, and Architects.

Co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) reacts to the recent implosion of Megadeth’s lineup that saw drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick unceremoniously exit the band. He also has a few thoughts to express regarding the online reaction to the widely-publicized financial woes of former Creed frontman Scott Stapp.

And before you start hollering, for the record, NO, he does not think Creed was a “metal” band. To learn why he thinks this topic belongs in the discussion… you’ll just have to listen in!

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 39

This week, we at the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast are proud to present two fresh songs by Letters To The Blind, a brand new self-described “hybrid metal” act from Dayton, Ohio.

Letters To The Blind began as a long-distance recording project in 2011 between vocalist Chaz Bond and guitarist Blaine Gordon - former members of a band called BioGenesis - when the latter was living in Florida. The group was officially formed when Gordon returned to Ohio this past summer, and rounded out with drummer C.J. Jones and bassist Randy Walton.

Letters To The Blind play an invigorating mixture of melodic death, technical, and progressive metal, and elicits comparisons to Canada’s Into Eternity and Sweden’s Evergrey. The songs “Letters To The Blind” and “Creed Of Honor” (heard at sign-off, so stay tuned) receive major thumbs up from co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure), minor flaws aside.

Then Kevin examines a recent controversy involving accusations of stolen artwork, this time by Los Angeles melodic hardcore act The Ghost Inside. Some are claiming that the quill pen on the cover of the new album “Dear Youth” bears too close a resemblance to a similar image on the cover of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s “One Of Us Is The Killer.” [2013] A ripoff on the level of the recent Avenged Sevenfold - Overkill fiasco, or the simple use of a common motif? Tune in for Kevin’s opinion, as well as his review of “Dear Youth” itself.

Finally, Mike offers his extensive, detailed reaction to Machine Head’s new monster “Bloodstone & Diamonds,” the Bay Area metal giants’ eighth studio album and debut on Nuclear Blast Records. Full disclosure up front: as a confirmed “Head Case,” he’s crazy about it, but it took a few listens for him to get there. Stay tuned to find out why.

We’re still accepting submissions for our ticket giveaway contests through Fort Lauderdale’s Revolution Live this month - for Attila (supported by Crown The Empire and Like Moths To Flame) next Friday, November 14th, and for The Ghost Inside (supported by Every Time I Die and Architects) on Sunday, November 30th.

This week, we showcase the songs “Left For Dead” and “3 Ring” by Louisville, KY rapcore outfit Corprit Convict, which co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) chalk up to a politically charged, raw, low-budget incarnation of Otep. Then Mike plugs the new album “As The World Burns” from Pitch Black Forecast, an underground side project of vocalist Jason “J-Mann” Popson (Mushroomhead) and drummer Gene Hoglan (Testament, etc.). The album contains guest appearances from Devin Townsend, Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God), and M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold), and is out now on Ferocious Records.

The big news of the week is, of course, the untimely death of industrial metal entertainer Wayne Static (ex-Static-X) last Saturday, November 1st. Stay tuned for a full round of discussion not only on the circumstances of Static’s passing, but on his career and musical legacy as well.

The Ghost Inside Streaming Full Album

The Ghost Inside is streaming new album "Dear Youth" in the player below, courtesy of Alternative Press.

"Dear Youth" is out on November 17th via Epitaph Records and is The Ghost Inside's fourth full-length album. It was co-produced by Jeremy McKinnon of A Day To Remember and Andrew Wade. Front man Jonathan Vigil explains the concept behind the album in a letter that he wrote to his younger self:

"Dear Youth,

"I'm writing to you now because it seems I’ve lost my way. I can't pinpoint exactly when it started, but I know that it’s not like it was before. I’ve realized the more time that passes, the more we lose touch. It’s starting to feel like all I ever do now is lose touch with things. But not you, I never wanted to lose you.

"I wish I had something to blame it all on, but I don’t. One day I was there and the next I was here. As if I was dreaming and suddenly woken up. These days I'm always wondering if what I've done is enough. It’s getting harder and harder for me to shake this feeling of stagnance.

"So old friend I’m writing to ask you what it feels like to have the whole world in your hand? Where we could set out and do anything that we imagined. Endless possibilities way before complacence set in. To be honest with you, I’ve forgotten what that all feels like. There was a wonder about us that has long since faded. That sense of excitement, I miss it.

"Dear youth, will you show me again? I need to be reminded of those times, back before this began..." More...

In addition to the upcoming Attila show at Fort Lauderdale’s Revolution Live on Friday, November 14th (supported by Crown The Empire and Like Moths To Flames), we at the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast are now staging another ticket giveaway contest through the same venue: The Ghost Inside (supported by Every Time I Die and Architects) on Sunday, November 30th. If interested, submit your full name matching your ID to podcast@metalunderground.com with one of the headlining bands in the subject line.

We launch this week’s episode with the song “These Empty Skies” from Keychain, a melodic hard rock five-piece based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The band formed in Novi Sad, Serbia, in 2009 covering songs by Godsmack, Shinedown, and (hold your tongue) Nickelback. After a disbandment and reformation, Keychain is currently working on a full-length original studio album.

Then co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) reports on his adventures this week on the road. He joined members of Lynchburg, Virginia metallers Mourn The Illusion on a whirlwind trek through North Carolina, starting with a headlining show by Italy’s Lacuna Coil at Greensboro’s Greene Street Club and a lively interview with the warm and lovely Cristina Scabbia (vocals). The following day came a jaunt over to Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte, an intimate, underground, sparsely promoted show, and a “special evening with” Soulfly and the entire Cavalera Tribe. Stay tuned for Mike’s rundown of events.

Finally - and you knew we couldn’t leave this one alone - Mike and co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) serve up the in-depth review and analysis you’ve been anticipating (or dreading) for months: Slipknot’s upcoming fifth full-length “.5: The Gray Chapter.” While reactions on at least one of our parts are a tad early, and a patented opinion might require a few more listens, we nonetheless do our enthusiastic best to describe in thorough detail the essence of this fascinating and rather unpredictable work of metal (and yes, Slipknot IS metal).

Listen in here, subscribe via iTunes or RSS feed, and enjoy! And not to worry - after today, we’re finished with Slipknot for the foreseeable future. Perhaps.
