April Fools! Did We Get You?

With two of our main writers abroad on travel and April Fools falling on Easter Sunday this year, we only posted a few April Fools this year, but we hope you enjoyed them.

Personally, I enjoyed Diamond Oz's "KISS Bassist Gene Simmons Announces Presidential Candidacy" and "Running as an independent candidate under the slogan, 'I was made for running you,' the sixty eight year old musician is pledging greater focus on trade, the arts and a 'unique' fiscal system, known as 'Rockanomics.'"

Light This City release "A Grotesque Reflection"

It's been ten years since "Stormchaser", but Bay Area melodic death metal outfit Light This City are back, releasing the first single from their fifth studio album "Terminal Bloom".

The new track is titled "A Grotesque Reflection" and can be viewed below.

Vocalist Laura Nichol had the following to say about the track:

"I've always had a fascination with Greek mythology, which a lot of my early Light This City lyrics referenced, and I found myself revisiting similar themes while writing lyrics for 'A Grotesque Reflection.' Obviously, one of the big questions that myths (and religion) try to answer is: What happens when we die? Kharon is the name of the ferryman who carries you into the underworld after your death. The line 'we have always been his passengers' alludes to feeling like normal life and the 'life' of death in the underworld are actually the same thing. So, when I die, and I'm about to approach this hellish place after my death--well, what makes that so different from the life I just came from? Your reflection in the waters of the underworld is really just a distorted visage of the same reflection you looked at every day in your normal life."

"Terminal Bloom" is out May 25th through drummer Ben Murray's Creator-Destructor Records. A tour will reportedly be announced soon.
