The first person that came to mind was Alex Koehler (Chelsea Grin), he's one of my best friends and his scream is evil as fuck. I've been wanting to collab with him for years and I'm beyond excited with the outcome. The lyrics to this song are amazing and I'm thankful I was able to put my spin on it.”

All right, let’s get the drill over with. We at the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast are hosting two upcoming ticket giveaways through Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) has to compensate for his barren, metal-scarce South Florida existence somehow.
The Black Dahlia Murder (supported by Suicide Silence and Chelsea Grin) plays 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with one of the headliners in the subject heading.
We properly kick off this week with another round of unsigned talent: Scranton, Pennsylvania’s Threatpoint, a straight-up, honest metal band that combines groove, thrash ’n’ roll, and the best of the American New Wave. Fans of Testament, DevilDriver, Sepultura, and Machine Head should pay close attention.
Opening anthem “Pave The Way” is taken from the band’s 2013 debut “Dead To Rise” (reviewed here), and stay tuned until the end, where we showcase the brand new song “Devil You Know,” taken from sophomore album “Careful What You Wish For.”
Speaking of Machine Head, the wily internet struck again this week, causing a leak that poured first single “Now We Die” (taken from upcoming eighth studio album “Bloodstone & Diamonds”) into the ears of thousands. Like real dudes - and unlike a certain unnamed band that rhymes with Metallica - the band have opted to roll with the punches and encourage you all to listen to, like, and share this song. We have, and you can hear our full thoughts presently.
Next, Kevin offers a review of “Language,” the recently released third studio album by Indianapolis, Indiana prog-heads The Contortionist. In his opinion, the band have gone “full-on Cynic” (or perhaps Opeth) and shed their deathcore outer-garments to the point where Kevin is unsure whether “Language” is even a proper metal record. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as you will hear.
Finally, we conclude with a rather euphoric reaction to the recently released track “At War With Reality,” taken from the upcoming album of the same title by Gothenburg metal pioneers At The Gates - the reformed band’s first studio material since 1995. As with The Haunted’s “Exit Wounds” and Carcass’ “Surgical Steel,” we think it signals a tremendous return, and until In Flames decide to pull their heads from their nether regions and rediscover metal, the melodic death style should be in safe, capable hands.
After the success of our DevilDriver giveaway in June, we’re inviting South Florida residents (or any able/willing to attend) to see The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, Chelsea Grin, and Alterbeast on Monday, October 13th. If interested, email email@example.com with subject heading “Black Dahlia Murder,” and submit your full name matching your ID.
Even if you can’t make it, lend us a hand and share our giveaway far and wide on social media; the more popular it gets, the more we can spread this experiment nationwide and to a venue near you.
Next, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) weighs in with a rather prickly and pessimistic insight on the longterm effects of Internet culture on the music/metal scene, specifically the downsides (and there are always downsides).
The downloading issue has been talked to death, but Mike sees some mass psychological implications at work here as well, and they do not bode well for the future. His hypothesis: due to the increased platform the Web offers to egoistic, insecure, and often talent-starved amateurs, there will never again emerge a tremendously popular, universally loved rock ’n’ roll band, much less a metal band. Listen in to hear his full thoughts on the matter.
Finally, Kevin offers a detailed review of the new self-titled album from Darkest Hour, which boasts a new rhythm section and a potentially divisive new direction in style - although Kevin puts up a passionate and justified defense on the album’s behalf. Do you agree?

"It has been way too long since we headlined in the good ol' US of A and it's an honor to be co-headlining with our friends in Black Dahlia. It doesn't matter how long your hair is, what your girlfriend looks like, or if you make it into work the next day... Come out and party with us!"
