Joseph Izayea Premieres Track Off Upcoming Album

The track "Reflection" from the upcoming collaboration record "Harder Truths" coming out on Black Friday by solo metalist, Joseph Izayea. The song was written by Josh Gilbert of As I Lay Dying & Wovenwar with Izayea penning the lyrics and vocal production. It's a song that touches on the sobering realization of becoming what you'd never be for the sake of your own survival: In this instance; ruthless, uncaring, vicious and cold.

Izayea states, "Sometimes, you've got to be the villain in someone else's story to stop yourself from being used and abused. This song was a lyrical expression of owning that mantle of the villain, and also having the awareness to know that it's not who you are, but merely who you had to be."

The album "Harder Truths" is a raw expression and exploration of human interactions, relationships and one’s sense of self. Delivering hard hitting tracks, deliciously distorted instruments and guttural vocals, the new album sees Izayea unleash a staggering solo debut accompanied by an epic ensemble of guest musicians.

Ember Sun Premiere Track On Metalunderground

Ember Sun is the new solo project born in 2021 of Lorthar (founder/ex-member of black metal band Order Of The Ebon Hand) from Greece, playing atmospheric funeral doom death with influences of gothic scene. Lorthar has been and still is a member of several bands in the metal music scene and also on ambient style bands. Ember Sun is a mix of all the music styles haunting Lorthar's temperament.

Lorthar of Ember Sun comments: "My essence fades in time; a very emotional song. What is left of us? Only memories. Existence is here for as long as we have memories. Memories are strictly related to time, since time tends to make people forget; and when we forget our memories, the essence of our beloved persons fades away. So our essence is something related to time. Thus, slowly, as the years pass, our essence fades away. It’s not a pessimistic view of reality, the opposite I would say. Make things that people will remember you by forever - Immortality."

The band is releasing their new album, titled On Earth and Heaven, on October 22 via code666, the cult sub label of Aural Music.

On Earth And Heaven is a hymn of solitude and sorrow. It expresses the fear of reaching our end; the despair of not seeing again all those we loved or hated; the incomprehensibility of being devoid consciousness; the sorrow of never seeing the dawn again. More...

Scattered Hamlet Release New Video

Scattered Hamlet was formed in 2010 by lead vocalist Adam Joad and has relentlessly toured all over the states with widespread appeal from their down to earth accessibility, blue collar work ethic and outlaw vibe. Making an impact from the outset, the title track opens with a burst of energy, distorted guitars, and dynamic vocals. Launching riff after riff the distorted guitars are a fierce force across their tracks, Scattered Hamlet creates a compelling sound with intricate guitar leads and mighty rhythms. From the aggressive mood of “Death or Dishonor” befitting a barroom brawl, through to the bluesy rocking “Low Class Blues”, Stereo Overthrow isn’t afraid to explore a variety of styles.

Driving a full-throttle sound brewed from the essence of Americana, Motorhead and a punk rock attitude, Scattered Hamlet delivers a high impact wherever they go. The new album Stereo Overthrow follows an already comprehensive discography from the four-piece straight out of the hills of Appalachia.

This is what the band had to say about "Stereo Overthrow."

"We were really inspired by Rudy Ray More and his journey as “Dolemite.” Here’s a guy that every film distributor laughed at but he knew his audience and had faith in his product. He’s a legend. When we started talking to record labels, they were talking to us because what we were doing worked, but then they wanted to change everything because they didn’t understand what we were doing or our audience. It made me think of Rudy and “Dolemite” so we made a video that was a nod to sticking to your guns and doing things your own way when everyone wants you to be something else." More...

Endure The Affliction Debut "The Reckoning"

Formed in late 2018, members Tim Keith (Lead Vocals), Deion Lanthier (Co-Lead Vocals/Guitar), Brett Dronet (Guitar), Byron Vollmer (Backup Vocals/Bass), Kyle Roberts (Drums) exploded onto their local Louisiana scene with the powerful, yet subtly emotional riffs and soaring vocals that define their sound. Overcoming hardship being their music's driving message, listeners find themselves relating to these musicians on a range of sensitive, but very real topics that many people struggle with daily.

The band had the following to say about "The Reckoning."

"This song deals with still loving someone that no longer loves you back. Sometimes we don't realize the consequences of our actions when we are in a relationship. It's easy to do damage to a relationship until it's beyond repair. So then the day comes when you realize it's over, and now you have to deal with that reckoning."

Illyrian Premiere Song On Metalunderground

Founded in 2015 in Calgary, Canada, Illyrian was formed from the remnants of several bands and music projects in their local scene. Seeking to bring together their different backgrounds and strengths, the band quickly set to work on what would become their debut offering, 2016's "Round 2: Fight!"

2019 marked the release of Illyrian's sophomore record, "The Entity, Unknown." The album solidified the band's signature approach to the metal genre, blending elements of death and thrash metal with technical and melodic composition.

Adventuring out from their prototypical thrash metal roots while embracing the energy and drive from the genre, their sound further evolved into a more focused and precise vision, injecting elements of death metal and less conventional textures such as world percussion and traditional folk instruments into their music.

For their album, "The Entity, Unknown", Illyrian was awarded the 2020 YYC Music Award for “Metal Recording of the Year,” punctuating a comparatively quiet year for the unit. Soon after, the band set to work on writing and recording their next production – a concept EP. Intentionally narrowing the scope of it to fully explore and realize its story and musicality, it was written and refined in isolation from one another both due to circumstance and creative choice.
