Battlecross Thinks Your Generation Is Spoiled

After insisting the band will NOT be your slave damn it, Battlecross has another track online for streaming from the "Rise To Power" album. "Spoiled" can be heard below, and guitarist Tony Asta spoke about the track:

"'Spoiled' kicks in with a heavy rockin old-school vibe and progresses into a brutal more technical feel. It's also a really fun song to jam. The subject matter and lyrics of 'Spoiled' were inspired by the dependency on modern technology, more specifically the cyber world.

"An entire generation thrives from its use but does not know what it was like before the internet existed. It IS a great tool, although the magnitude of its impact on our everyday lives sometimes gives me the chills. This is the only song I had a hand in writing lyrics for and you can thank the 'phone-gazing zombies' for it." More...

Cradle Of Filth Streams "Enshrined In Crematoria"

After painfully deflowering your maidenhead last week, today Cradle Of Filth arrives again today to once again wield the "Hammer of the Witches" against metal fans. Check out the track "Enshrined In Crematoria" below.

New album "Hammer of the Witches" is due to drop on July 10th via Nuclear Blast. Frontman Dani Filth also elaborated on the newly unleashed track:

"Lyrically the track 'Enshrined in Crematoria' is hilted in the legendary Ark Of The Tragedian, the poet's Holy Grail. It is the author's inspiration personified as a tombed angel, much like that of Poe's pale obsession, and the magickal 'midnight' ritual wherein she is conjured forth as a reincarnation of his lost love, to provide forbidden artistic sustenance. It is imagination's utter peak and fuel for a literal literary madman. 'Enshrined in Crematoria' is at essence the first of guitarist Richard Shaw's contributions to the new album, before the full band took it by the teeth and spat it into light." More...

Rezistor Releases New Album

Romanian thrash band Rezistor has a new album out now titled "By Any Means Necessary." You can check out the track "Take" below, or download the whole album for free at the Rezistor website here. The group also comments:

"Now that everything is finally finished and out in the open, we can share with you the reason(s) why it took us so long and also why things went so quiet around here: in short, we've been through hell and back... countless setbacks, life threatening health issues, backstabbing & sabotage within our own ranks, critical frictions with the local studio (again!), you name it.

"We've been hit long and hard. Honestly, there were times when we felt like throwing in the towel...but somehow in our darkest hour, the gods of (thrash) metal decided to gave us a hand and some really wonderful guys jumped in to help: we cannot thank you enough, Ionut Micu, for the exemplary support! Without your enthusiastic input and magical drumming, we would have never managed to record this album - these are not big words, just reality. And we'd also like to thank you, Marius Costache, for taking the difficult job of putting all the broken pieces back together and going out of your way to make it sound solid. And of course, kudos to Costin Chioreanu who agreed once again to join forces and delivered a killer album cover! Thank you all!

"But enough with the bad blood. This is a time for celebration and headbanging, so please pay us a visit at our website (although some nitpicking is still required to get the website up to date) and get your download link! I know some of you dislike MediaFire, but we decided to went with it because of the fast download rate (compared to other similar services). So... DOWNLOAD, LISTEN, AND PLAY THE SUCKER LOUD! ENJOY!"

Bullet For My Valentine Posts New Video

Hot on the release of new single, “You Want A Battle? (Here’s A War),” Bullet For My Valentine releases today a incendiary video for the track.

The song is featured on the band’s new album, "Vemon," which is due out on August 14th via RCA Records.

Directed and edited by Stuart Birchall (Bring Me The Horizon, Young Guns) and produced by Nathan Killham of Kode Media, “You Want A Battle? (Here’s A War)” is a narrative video that shines a light on domestic violence and abuse.

"I have always wanted to work with Bullet and I knew after talking with Matt [Tuck] that the style of storytelling I had in mind was very well suited to their own ideas,” says Birchall. “The band and label were very respectful of the creative process and allowed me to develop and refine concepts until we had the perfect fit. We were all keen on making a bold, dark statement about abuse that would resonate with a wide audience and complement this with a stylish performance. Everyone involved worked hard to bring the vision to life, it is always humbling to work with such dedicated cast and crew. As a filmmaker, being trusted and given creative freedom by the artist to interpret their message is where the most powerful work is done." More...

King Heavy To Release Debut This September

Chilean/Belgian doom metal band King Heavy is set to release the self-titled debut full length album via Cruz Del Sur Music on September 4th in Europe and September 18th in the U.S.

King Heavy is anything but the typical brand of mono-dimensional, superficial doom metal. Aside from strong elements of Candlemass and of the more traditional doom metal sound, King Heavy offers epic arrangements and a twisted touch that reminds of Black Sabbath's "Born Again," Celtic Frost's "Into the Pandemonium" and the early, darkest side of Danzig. The album contains seven songs for a total running time of over 47 minutes and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Pablo Clares at DM6 Studio, Chile; Vocals were recorded by Peter Maene at Creative Factory, Belgium.

Shortly after the release of the album, the band will engage an European tour which will bring them to Malta's Doom Fest, Dutch Doom Days and Biebob (the notorious Belgian metal club). Other tour dates will be published and confirmed very soon!

The track list for the album is:

1. La Gargola
2. Life AD
3. As Dawn Broke on The Day
4. Thirteen Chosen Ones
5. Wounds
6. The Crowning
7. He Who Spoke in Tongues More...
