SinnerAngel Premieres "Banshee"

Today we summon the mighty SinnerAngel, which as it turns out, is actually a Colombian metal band!

The SinnerAngel will release debut full-length album "Sinister Decálogo" this coming June 25th via GrimmDistribution, and today we're offering up an exclusive advance listen to album track "Banshee."

SinnerAngel was born in 2004 in the city of Medellín with the idea of creating metal that was not boxed from the beginning in a single genre. This principle allowed the predominant sounds of the band members to cover a very wide spectrum ranging from melodic death metal to primitive black metal, generating elaborate and forceful riffs, with guttural voices and melodic atmospheres.

New album "Sinister Decálogo" seeks to express the dark side of humanity, and pre-orders are now available here. More info on the band can be found via the SinnerAngel Facebook page and the upcoming album's track listing is as follows:

01. SinnerAngel

Hogan's Goat Premieres "Pennymade"

We're going full throttle towards southern hard rock today with a premiere from Nashville, TN group Hogan's Goat.

"Pennymade" is the 2nd single off of the band's debut, self-titled album - check it out below. Due out July 18th, "Hogan's Goat" was self-produced, mixed by Alex Gilson and Nathan Zensen at Gold Cassette, and mastered by Tommy Dorsey. If you like what you hear below, pre-orders are online here.

Vocalist John Salmon comments on the new song: “'Pennymade' is one of the more straightforward tracks from the album. It illustrates our Rock N’ Roll flavor, while keeping pace with some of the heavier songs. That’s just my two cents.”

Named after a tale from Scottish folklore, the band initially formed in late 2014. As the story goes, a farmer (Hogan) owned a goat rumored to have an odor said to travel miles away. The goat's been described as having patchy fur, an eye out of socket, and flies abounding. For the band members, this perfectly symbolized their unorthodox style, that which is anything but unnoticeable. The upcoming album's track listing is as follows:

1. Rat Boy
2. Pennymade
3. Shit Kicker
4. Annie Off The Rails
5. Over The Palisade
6. If I'm Dead
7. John Doe
8. Jack & Jill
9. Elkhorn Mountain
10. Drinkin' With The Priest More...

Seven Spires Creates "The Paradox"

With new theatrical piece "Solveig," the male-backed American metal band Seven Spires is about to pull off a major coup in the ever-growing symphonic metal scene.

This debut album, which is to be released worldwide on August 4th, 2017 via SAOL, indeed succeeds in establishing the four-piece orchestra as an essential figure of tomorrow’s extreme soundscape. Today, Seven Spires has teamed up with MetalUnderground.com for the world premiere of "The Paradox" music video.

You can pre-order "Solveig" now through iTunes at this location or via Amazon.com over here.

The wide stylistic range embraced by Seven Spires’ art of musical storytelling relentlessly attests of the outstanding abilities of the band’s members. Going astray from melancholic power metal to melodic death metal with fierce forays into black metal, the quartet’s versatility never fails to make a deep impression on the listener. Their signature blend of melody, theatrics and high-caliber musicianship is tastefully bittersweet, chaotic at times and comforting at others.

“Solveig” tells the story of a lost soul and his journey through a Demon’s sunless neo-victorian underworld. Despite small glimmers of hope, it is a grim tale with a heavy focus on escapism, death and decadence. The love for Romantic composers and epic film scores the four young graduates/students of the prestigious Berklee College of Music have shows in their ambitious and emotionally moving dramatic vision.

Frontwoman Adrienne Cowan leads the band with an iron will and a golden voice. She employs a combination of her classical training and self-taught extreme vocal techniques to "deliver every bit of recorded promise live." Therefore, the strict operatic singing that is often found in the symphonic corner of metal is more of a spice than a staple for Seven Spires. More...

Nula Premieres New Music Video

Belgrade sludge / post-metal band Nula, in cooperation with young Serbian artist Mihajlo Dragaš, is excited to release an animated video for the song "Silazak u Prah" ("Descent into Dust").

The song hails from latest EP "Kenoma" that dropped in February Via Black Bow Records. Today we have the distinct pleasure of exclusively premiering that video online - check it out below and let us know what you think!

If you like what you hear, the full "Kenoma" EP can be picked up digitally or streamed in full at Bandcamp here. The band comments on this freshly crafted clip:

"Mihajlo Dragaš is one of the most promising Serbian artist in the field of animation, drawing and graphics, and a winner of many national and international awards for his works. Currently he's working on his first feature-length animated film 'Death of Mother Jugovic,' which will be premiered at the festival ANIFILM in the Czech Republic.

"The video was created as a synergy of two artistic expressions, blend of sound and image imagination of the two separate creative potential. The director was working independently on the video, skillfully implementing the elements of the visual identity of the band with its own symbolic associations. As a result, the work is rich in archetypal motives that extend deep into the human unconscious. At the same time, the presentation of emotionally charged content gives everyone an opportunity for authentic personal experience." More...

Contra Premieres "Dr. Goldfoot"

This coming July 1st, sludgy stoner doom group Contra will officially drop the screen-clearing bomb of debut album "Deny Everything."

That release is being prepped by Robustfellow Productions / Shifty Records, with pre-orders now online over here. The album was recorded at Bad Back Studios and mastered at Cauliflower Audio.

With just over two weeks to go, today we're premiering an advance track from the album - check out "Dr. Goldfoot" below!

Contra was originally formed as an instrumental 3-piece by former Sofa King Killer guitarist, Chris Chiera, and ex-Rue drummer, Aaron Brittain. After briefly playing together in another local outfit, they sought to start their own band and enlisted the aid of So Long Albatross bassist, Adam Horwatt, to play 4-string baritone guitar.

After recording the "Son of Beast" demo, the band decided to add another layer to this potent mix of metal, blues, rock, and sludge by asking vocalist Larry Brent to join the ranks. Check out Larry's contributions in the track below. More...

Insatia Premieres New Song

Symphonic power metal group Insatia recently signed to Pitch Black Records for the release of sophomore album "Phoenix Aflame" this coming June 23rd, 2017.

Ahead of that release, today we've got an exclusive premiere of new track "We Are The Grey," which can be heard below. Like what you hear? Pre-orders in digital and physical format are available here.

Vocalist Zoë Federoff comments that the new track "was actually the first song we had written for this album - originally I had constructed it to be a ballad, but as we started working on it, it became more straight up power metal. I don't like discussing my lyrics in too much depth with certain songs, because it's fun to see people apply their own meanings to them. This is definitely one of those songs."

Founded in 2009, the band previously released one self-produced album and has opened for multiple international acts, including Sonata Arctica and Dark Tranquility. In 2014 Fabio D'Amore (Serenity) and his partner Ivan Moni Bidin (Pathosray, Last Warning) announced their positions as producers on Insatia's upcoming sophomore release, "Phoenix Aflame." Joined by producer Staffan Karlsson, Fabio and Ivan spent the first part of 2015 recording the album at St. Cecilia Studios in Tucson, Arizona, USA, with engineers Steven Lee Tracy and Robbie Williamson.

The album's production then went to Artesonika Studios, Fabio and Ivan's home base, in Perdenone Italy. In mid 2015 Insatia's lineup was further enhanced by the addition of Dave Ablaze (Blackguard) on bass, as album production continued overseas. Kaelen Sarakinis and Daniel Millan were added on guitars and drums in 2016. More...
