Thy Art Is Murder Parts With Vocalist

Australian outfit Thy Art Is Murder just posted the following message online about parting ways with vocalist CJ McMahon:

"After much conjecture and ambiguity on his behalf, it is with a heavy heart that we must announce today that CJ is no longer a part of Thy Art Is Murder. We have worked so hard from day one to make this band what it is now, and develop the reputation that we have and he had been there with us every step of the way.

"We like to think that even if someone doesn't like our music that they can at least respect our work ethic. This band has taken us to places we never thought we would see and to share stages with many bands we never thought we would get to play with or meet, let alone call friends. It is unfortunate that with our best year to date and our biggest paved out before us that he has decided to leave.

"All this being said, touring as hard as we do does take its toll on you physically, but more importantly mentally and emotionally. We are an underground metal band, and have been so fortunate over the last two years to carve out a small income thanks to so many dedicated and generous fans around the world. For some people, it comes to a turning point in their life where that income is no longer enough for their personal goals, and that point has come for CJ. We would like to wish him all our best as he leaves the band and moves onward to start a family and new life with his loving fiancée.

"The four of us are continuing forward into 2016 for some of the biggest and best tours of our lives. We won't be slowing down or missing any shows. We head back out next month with Parkway Drive and Architects throughout Europe and the UK and will be taking one of our favourite vocalists with us, Nick Arthur from Molotov Solution.

"Thy Art is what we have done with all of our adult lives and we have put absolutely everything we have into the band and the friendship between the four of us. That friendship and drive to create extreme music is what has kept us together through thick and thin. Unfortunately not everyone can share this fire." More...

Molotov Solution Cancels All Upcoming Live Shows

Vocalist Nick Arthur of Las Vegas act Molotov Solution has issued the following announcement about canceling upcoming tour dates and the current status of the band:

"Bad news guys: First off, I want to thank everyone for all or any support given to help us through the years.

"Secondly, I want to apologize to our friends and fans for canceling our upcoming shows and tours. It has been a great adventure, but unfortunately I have reached a point where I can no longer continue touring full time. A realization I initially made a couple years ago, but tried to push through for the rest of the band and the fans.

"Future plans for Molotov Solution are still up in the air, as I would not like to see this be the end. Please continue to support our members in their future endeavors. Either way, we will all continue creating music.

"Thank you for your time and support. We have dropped all upcoming tours and shows as a result."

Molotov Solution Splits With Guitarist

Blkheart Group recording artist Molotov Solution has announced that founding member and guitarist Robbie Pina and the band have parted ways. Cody Jarvis, who appeared with the band during the recent national Unearth/Chimaira tour will now assume the guitarist role until a full time replacement is announced.

The band has released the following statement: “After recently taking some time off for personal reasons, Robbie has decided to step down. For now, we are calling on our friend Cody Jarvis to fill his place until we find a full time replacement. Anyone worried about musical material differences will not be disappointed, especially if you are a fan of Insurrection. Anyone worried about the future of the band, don’t be; it has never held brighter things for us. Stay tuned for spring plans…”

Molotov Solution is supporting the band's latest release, "Insurrection," which dropped last fall via Blkheart Group. Pina’s last work with the band was appearing in the video for the song “Blood Of Tyrants” (which appears on "Insurrection").

Unearth, Skeletonwitch Stole Show in Austin

Co-headliners Unearth and Chimaira, two bastions of the breakdown, threw down a modern-metal clinic at Emo’s East in Austin, Texas. Molotov Solution, a promising newcomer to Metal Blade Records, opened the show in fitting ground-and-pound deathcore fashion. Skeletonwitch seemed the odd man out, although their searing blend of blackened thrash proved a needed diversity. The package came sealed with a black licorice-tasting inebriation courtesy of Jägermeister music. More...

Unearthing The Metal Underground In Las Vegas

I have a special place in my heart for Las Vegas, probably because I lived in Nevada for almost twenty years. You hear all kinds of cliched phrases about Las Vegas being the "entertainment capital" of the U.S., but that depends on what kind of entertainment you're looking for. If you're just some tourist, you'll go hog wild for the latest flamboyant guy taming a white tiger or some pop star appearing at Caesar's Palace. Or you could be the weekend partier from LA, descending on the city for a night of debauchery at one of the dozens of night clubs and ultra lounges. But the kind of entertainment a metal listener wants is going to be markedly different, and a scene does exist in Las Vegas once again.

See, the Las Vegas valley had a great underground scene back in the late eighties and throughout the nineties. Besides Mark Slaughter putting it on the map in terms of commercial metal, Mitch Harris released two LP's with his LV band The Righteous Pigs before leaving to join Napalm Death. Clubs such as Calamity Jayne's brought in weekly shows before they were busted for coke, and the Huntridge was legendary in terms of hardcore and extreme metal shows. All the local bands played at the local college bars around UNLV and at the Elks Lodge in Henderson, and had their music promoted on the radio station before the general manager switched the format to all jazz back in 1998. Local bands such as Goatlord, Requiem and Hemlock (still active and billing themselves "the hardest working band in metal") had no more exposure after this happened, and the local scene died off for a number of years after this.

Technology intervened and created a renaissance for the Las Vegas scene. College radio isn't imperative any more when you can hear everything on satellite radio and the internet now. Besides the House of Blues at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and the Hard Rock Casino bringing in the bigger names, there are tons of local venues hosting concerts now. Every weekend there are shows at the Cheyenne Saloon with local bands on the roster supporting the big name acts that come in from L.A. and elsewhere. That five-hour drive from California has brought in bands ranging from Asesino to Enthraller at this venue, which was the site for the Las Vegas Death Fest 3 and the Doom In June shows. Local favorites like Avenger In Blood and Soiled Carnage can be found there with a whole host of other garage metal bands opening for the big gigs.

In the past five years, the scene has exploded with bands such as metalcore heavy hitters Molotov Solution putting Las Vegas on the map. Another big surprise has been the immense popularity of Guttural Secrete in the national death metal scene. Granted, they've been around almost a decade, but it is literally unheard of for a band this extreme to have almost a quarter of a million hits on Youtube - especially an independent one. In many ways, Las Vegas does have the ideal climate for a scene if any city has. It's 24 hours of non-stop drinking, gambling and every vice imaginable. What it lacks in historic culture it exceeds in bacchanalian virtues. It is the setting for the glitterati and the plastic too, and for every serious extreme metal and metalcore band working the club circuit, the desert floor is littered with alot of screamo bands and younger kids that need to hone their style.

Below we will take you to the music of a few Las Vegas bands that haven't been featured prominently in our pages, so you can get an idea of what this desert community has to offer the metal scene.

Tales of the Grotesque

Tales of the Grotesque define themselves as a brutal melodic death metal band that were "recently released from a dark room where they defined their sound and status as a band." They've been around since 2010 and it's their mission to give you the feeling of an eerie tale crawling in your skin. They were recently voted October band of the month by Las Vegas website FiggZillaMusic.com.

Molotov Solution Issues Recording Update

Molotov Solution has issued the following update about recording a new album:

"Hey, it’s Molotov Solution and we are here in the Machine Shop in New Jersey working on our Blkheart Group Debut. We have been working on the album since early this year and finally entered the studio to start tracking April 29th. We’ve been tracking for a solid two weeks now and are relieved to be this ahead of schedule and having it sound this much to our liking!

"Immediately once we got here drums were on the agenda. Jake flew through the percussions in just two days. Even though we had our entire album finished in pre-production, our Producer, Will Putney, has us on a healthy regiment of tracking.

"Once the drums were done with, we enjoyed a nice day off afterwards in preparation for tracking guitar and bass. For Richie and Robbie, the tones for both of these were so crucial from the start. So after Richie came back from visiting home for a bit, we had dialed in a tone. The result was a satisfying layering of heavy, yet clear and distinguishable touch on the tones for our drop G and drop E tunings. In addition to the Mesa, Peavey and Diezel heads for rhythm tones, we have been performing overdubs and leads using Fractal Audio’s Axe-Fx. More...
