Heavens Decay Premieres Full New Album Early

Next Monday, December 12th marks the release of "The Great Void Of Mystery," the debut album from Heavens Decay.

A week ahead of that drop date, we're letting you in on the mystery of the void early with a full, exclusive album premiere! Check out "The Great Void Of Mystery" below, and if you dig it, be sure to pre-order your own copy here.

Led by Julio Viterbo (Tormentor, Shub Niggurath, Cenotaph) the music is primarily NWOBHM-inspired music infused with the range of influences from Viterbo's impressive career as a musician.

After a long and illustrious path in death metal as a guitarist in the aforementioned bands, Viterbo decided to reconnect with the classic heavy metal that enveloped him as a youth and gave meaning to his life. This change in direction led to the launch of Heavens Decay.

After composing several songs, Viterbo invited Oscar Clorio to join him on the journey as drummer and the pair then recruited Nick Hernandez (Stone Magnum) as vocalist. The songs were completed via the Internet, as Oscar lives in Mexico City, while Julio and Nick call Chicago home.

Finally in July 2016, Heavens Decay recorded "The Great Void Of Mystery" in Chicago's Minbal studios. The album was engineered by Matt Russell and mastered by Dan Swanö in Unisound studios in Sweden. Artwork was created by Arturo Vargas at Souls Crematorium Art Studio and the full track listing is as follows: More...

The Funeral Portrait Premieres New Music Video

The Funeral Portrait - an Atlanta group blending together metal and rock with some pop sensibilities - will drop "A Moment of Silence" via Revival Recordings this coming December 16th.

Telling tales of love, loss, anger, and grief, "A Moment Of Silence" was first heralded with a clip for "The Water Obeyed The Gravity," and today we're bringing another advance glimpse of the release with an all-new music video.

Check out our exclusive premiere of the "Like Father Like Son" video below, which follows the album’s main character and demonstrates the relationship he had with God and how it is falling apart. In the video you can see he is desperately trying to reconnect, but no one is there listening.

Vocalist Lee Jennings comments: "The 'Like Father Like Son' video really brings to life some of the story of our new record, 'A Moment Of Silence.' A battle in a teenage boy's head struggling to know what happens after death. A boy who is lost in the world trying to just hold on one more day while not trying to fall down the hypnotizing spiral of every day life."

The video was directed by Robbie Grantham, and upcoming album "A Moment of Silence" is now available for pre-order here.

Trash Deity Premieres Debut Single

It's a new week and all the election nonsense is finally over so life can get back to quasi-normal.

In celebration of that milestone, we're offering an exclusive first look at the visualizer for "Finger On A Trigger" from Trash Deity, and for a limited time you can also download the track for free right here.

Combining the chaos and energy of the classic Wax Trax! Chicago sound updated with hard and modern L.A. production, Trash Deity consists of Groovie Mann aka Franke N. Nardiello (My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult frontman/writer) and accomplished music producer and industrial artist JDN aka John D. Norten (Blue Eyed Christ).

This debut single "Finger On A Trigger" combines classic Groovie Mann vocals and cryptic lyrics with an infectious heavy electronic/guitar groove benefitting from JDN's studio experience mixing and engineering major artists.

The accompanying music video is comprised entirely of manipulated shots of paintings from the twisted imagination and eccentric mind of Groovie Mann. Trash Deity's debut 4 song EP, "Run 4 Your Lies!," will follow soon.

JDN comments: "I think the forthcoming EP is a really exciting representation of Groovie Mann and I experimenting and discovering what our sound is as Trash Deity. It's an eclectic EP because we weren't locked into a sound or expectation from our previous projects. One song is electronic for the clubs with a pounding bass line and signature Groovie Mann maniacal vocal chants, then another is a sexy dirty strip club anthem. Each song has it's own identity, but the EP still sounds totally cohesive and chaotic at the same time...just like us!" More...

Chasing Safety Premieres New Music Video

Today we're teaming up with the band to give you an advance look at what to expect from "Nomad" - check out an energetic video for the album's opening track "Brand New Prison" below.

“Brand New Prison" is about the daily struggle we all face, and how everyday it seems there is something weighing on our minds. Chasing Safety frontman Johnny Galivan elaborates:

“The majority of the inspiration for the song has come from crucial life decisions I have been having to make lately. The theme of 'Nomad' is about how no matter how many people you are surrounded by, you can still feel alone. Being the first one written, I wrote this song about how even though I have my family and friends, with these types of life decisions they weigh solely on me.”
