Pit Stories: Round 1 - Fight!

The pit is the heart of the metal scene, and there's a 1,001 amazing stories to be found there. We're on a quest to unearth them all!

This week guitarist Raphael Pinsker from New York's Fin'amor shares the following tale of a fight breaking out during every single song of an Oceano set:

It had been a few years since I had last seen Oceano live, the last time being New England Metal & Hardcore Fest. The band is known to "bring the beef" live and I was excited to finally see them again. The amount of energy Oceano brings to the stage is massive and I was looking forward to seeing what would happen at this show.

As I walked into the venue I immediately notice how "DIY" this place looked: makeshift bar? Check. Makeshift bathrooms? Check. On the second floor the toilet was flooded, the sink was stuffed with trash and empty beer cans were afloat at the rim. This place was a complete shit hole, but deep down inside I knew something had to go down that night.

I met up with my buddy Al and we grabbed beers at the "bar." Oceano begins their set and no more than 30 seconds in, the entire place is rocking back and forth. Everyone in the venue gets pushed back, beers are dropping, people are falling on each other, and the pit is raging. First song in: FIGHT. Al and I look at each other confused as kids are trying to break it up. The band continues playing through all of this as if nothing happened.

Oceano moves onto their second song, again another fight. Like clockwork, Oceano is bringing the beef and the fights keep coming. During the breakdown of their sixth song a massive fight breaks out, Al and I look at each other with huge grins on our faces. He points over to the sound booth as we see the sound engineer grab an iron pipe and hop into the crowd to help break the fight up. Staff and security are pulling kids off of each other and kicking them out of the venue.

The house lights get turned on and staff is ejecting everyone in sight. We turn around to the bar and everything has been packed away into blue bins and was being carried upstairs. After the room was cleared Al and I were recapping on what we had just witnessed. Al tells me "There are shows, and then there are shows you remember. This is a show that you will remember for the rest of your life." It's true.

Fin'amor's new album "Forbidding Mourning" will be released on July 7th, 2015 with pre-orders now available here. Two tracks from the album can be heard in the Bandcamp player below. More...

Oceano Posts "The Taken" Video

Chicago's deathcore titans from Oceano have teamed up with Metal Hammer for the premiere of a brand new music video. Check out "The Taken" below.

Directed by Orie McGinness of Enlighten Creative Studio, "The Taken" comes from Oceano's new studio album, "Ascendants," which is out now worldwide and features nine crushing new tracks. Oceano front man Adam Warren comments:

Veil Of Maya Reveals Album Details, New Tour Dates

Chicago metal titans Veil Of Maya will release "Matriarch" on May 12th via Sumerian Records. Today, the quartet also announces a late Spring headlining tour with special guests Revocation, Oceano, Gift Giver, and Entheos. The Matriarch Tour begins May 20th in Detroit and VIP pre-order tickets are available now via this link.

When Veil of Maya was recording "Matriarch," the group found itself with a lot of new ideas, but no singer. Enter Lukas Magyar, hailing from the middle of nowhere.

“I’m from this small town in Wisconsin, where there’s not a lot of music and nobody’s really as serious about it as I am,” says Magyar. “I had followed Veil for a few years, and was really impressed by them. When I heard they needed a new singer, I got in touch.” Magyar, however, had never toured before. Or even been on a plane. Not a problem.

“We flew him out, auditioned him and hired him on the spot,” reveals guitarist Marc Okubo. “He was great. He could sing, too, which is something we’d wanted to do for a while. It really opened up some possibilities.”

After making his live debut in front of thousands at last year’s Knotfest, Magyar quickly joined producer Taylor Larson (Periphery, Darkest Hour) and his new band mates (rounded out by Okubo, drummer Sam Applebaum and bassist Dan Hauser) in the studio to record "Matriarch." It’s an album that finds Magyar bringing a new addition to Veil Of Maya’s arsenal; a mix of harsh and clean singing.

“There was controversy when we released the single, ‘Mikasa’” Okubo admits. “But for every 10 kids who complained online, we gained hundreds of new fans. I think ‘Mikasa’ is the most popular song we’ve ever put out.” More...

Texas Independence Fest Day 2: Whitechapel

Deathcore was the chosen style of music for day two of Texas Independence Fest in Austin, Texas. Whitechapel headlined and Oceano and Boris The Blade were two of the bands providing support. All those bands played the main stage, the Garage Stage. Before getting into this this stage, I would like to look at some of the small stage, Control Room Stage. Metalcore seems to be alive and well in Temple, Texas, a town located an hour north of Austin. Insonomist out of Temple played yesterday’s show and In The Trench played today. Vocalist Steven Harding’s refrain was infectious and the band got the small crowd in motion. More...
