Pedretti and co-conspirator Bruno Dorella have spent the past 16 years releasing albums on labels like Load Records (Lightning Bolt, Prurient), and performing across the globe with the likes of Godflesh and Thrones for a total of almost 1,000 shows to date. More...

Global Music Award-winning heavy metal group Enemy Remains was formed in 2005 by original Fates Warning drummer, Steve Zimmerman, and guitarist Tommy Blardo. By 2014 - after releasing first full-length album, "Two Faces Two Minds" - the band had solidified itself as a talent to be reckoned with in the northeastern U.S.
After a brief hiatus last year, allowing Zimmerman to re-join the original Fates Warning line-up reunion celebrating the 30th anniversary of "Awaken The Guardian," and for Blardo to develop his digital radio station "Metal Fortress Radio," Enemy Remains is back with the addition of new vocalist Frank Morin and guitarist Scott Kadish, formerly of End Time Illusion.
Enemy Remains will release brand new album, "No Faith In Humanity," on January 20th, 2017, featuring mastering from Chris "Zeuss" Harris. Pre-orders will be available soon via all major online music retailers.
Guitarist Tommy Blardo states, "I think our fans are going to be very surprised with the new direction of the band. On this album, we're very focused on vocal melodies and driving songwriting, while still finding room for those anthem-like choruses. Don't worry though, being driven by Steve, we're definitely keeping the progressive sound we've always been known for. We worked really hard on the new album and we're excited to share it with our fans." More...
Bloodclot - featuring hardcore pioneers John Joseph (Cro-Mags), Joey Castillo (ex-Queens of the Stone Age), Nick Oliveri (ex-Queens of the Stone Age), Todd Youth (Danzig) - has launched a first single. Check out the title track from upcoming album, "Up In Arms," via the lyric video below.
John Joseph (vocals) comments: "'Up in Arms' is a call to arms for the people of America and across the globe who are sick of the lies, death and destruction of innocent people being caused by the military industrial complex who run governments and propagate unjust wars in order to fill the bank accounts of corrupt businessmen."
Todd Youth (guitars) adds: "If you take a look at what is going on right now in the world, corrupt politicians, war, famine, destruction of the planet by the animal agriculture industry - things have got to change before it's too late. Musically I wanted to write something that gave me the feeling I had the first time that I heard Discharge, Motorhead or the Bad Brains - a relentless wall of sound that makes you think!!"
Bloodclot plans to release full-length album "Up In Arms" in spring 2017 via Metal Blade Records. Southern California fans have a chance to hear this new material early on December 17th at "The Power of the Riff" festival, where the group will be performing together for the first time alongside Wolves in the Throne Room, Incantation, Pelican, and more.
