Crown The Lost Streaming New Album Online

Update: The streaming period for "Cold Pestilent Hope" has end. The album is now available at most major online retailers for the price of $6 USD.

Metalunderground.com is proud to host the exclusive full album stream of Crown The Lost's new album, "Cold Pestilent Hope," which will be released tomorrow, July 19th via Gas Can Records and most online retailers and streaming services. "Cold Pestilent Hope" is the Pittsburgh band's third album, and first with new vocalist Leon Mallah, as well as bassist Timothy Boyle and drummer Argel Marchelletta.

Founding guitarist David E. Gehlke commented: "We're very stoked to be working with a new, innovative company like Gas Can. The fact that they're willing to think outside the box made them a logical choice to release Cold Pestilent Hope. A band's third album is usually a very slippery slope, but I think we've gotten over that hump and have fully developed our own identity. In our (totally biased) opinion, it's our best work to date, and we hope you feel the same way."

The complete tracklisting for "Cold Pestilent Hope" is as follows:

1. Pray For Death
2. Separate Blood From Waste
3. Breathe Into Emptiness
4. In Defiance Of Sanctity

7. Bloodsoaked Serenity
8. Consumed
9. Cold Pestilent Hope
10. Forgotten and Damned
11. Inexorable

Egypt Central Releases Acoustic Video

Metalunderground.com has obtained the exclusive premiere of an acoustic video for Egypt Central's hit single and title track, "White Rabbit." The video was shot in the Atlantic Records Studios in New York City and puts the band's songwriting and musicianship front and center without the glossy production of today's mainstream metal.

Egypt Central’s new album, "White Rabbit," came out on May 31, 2011 on Fat Lady Music/ILG. Produced by Skid Mills (Saving Abel, 12 Stones), "White Rabbit" is the follow-up to 2008’s self-titled debut, which reached #8 on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart. The 12-song set features heavy riffs, lyrics from the soul and strong melodic hooks. Threaded throughout this collection of songs is a story of consequences that occur when one accepts or declines the invitation from the fictionalized character of the “White Rabbit.” A comic strip created by bassist Joey Chicago depicts the story in more detail and can be found in the CD booklet.

“We knew we had solid songs, but when the opportunity came to work with Skidd, we found the person that could not only make a great sounding record, but also bring the best out of us,” states lead singer John Falls. “We had a lot of growing to do as men and the time was right to give our fans what they deserved and what we knew we were capable of…Kick Ass Rock!” Adds Joey Chicago, “Collectively, this is the best group of songs we have ever written.”

Seven Nines And Tens Premieres New Song

Having been featured in our Vancouver experimental metal edition of "Unearthing the Underground" as well talking at length with us about their new record "Habitat 67" during a recent interview Vancouver instrumental metal act Seven Nines and Tens has turned to Metalunderground.com to premiere a brand new song from its forthcoming album. The track, titled "Crystalline Xanthine Alkaloid," promises to be one of the band's heaviest yet.


Download an MP3 of "Crystalline Xanthine Alkaloid" here (right-click and "Save Target As")

Founding member Dave Cotton offered the following commentary about the song:

"This was the most recent song we wrote before we went to the studio in February 2011. Anyone who has been following us since we first started playing live in 2008 would recognize that the sound of this song is a departure to what we had been doing previously. I feel our older material is very intricate as far as the arrangements go and this song is simpler and most definitely heavier. I could tell you exactly who we are trying to emulate as far as influences go, but I’ll leave it up to the listener put it together. Our engineer is a whiz and I think his touch is all over the song; I particularly like the mixing he did on the drums. Also creating the noise part in the middle was some of the most fun I’ve ever had in a recording studio. We all took turns using a Korg Kaos pad through a Boss Giga delay through a Roland Juno, through a Roland Handsonic on 'Texas Chainsaw Masscre' mode."

Better Left Unsaid Gives Update From The Road

Modesto, California's Better Left Unsaid is currently on the Hed To Head Tour II supporting Hed(pe) and Mushroomhead and has provided Metalunderground.com with an exclusive tour blog from the road:

I am sure you are ready for one hell of a tour blog from a little known metal band from Modesto, California… Hell, most of you have no idea who we are, much less the town we are from! That being said, I am going to give this a shot…

We, Better Left Unsaid, have been on the Hed To Head Tour II for the past month and are 30 days from even coming close to home. The tour, sponsored by Jagermeister and co-headlined by Mushroomhead and HedPE has taken us across the country and does not let up until we end back in LA on June 10th. I am actually writing you from a shitty hotel room in Allentown, Pennsylvania on a much needed day off. The shittier the room, the better, because it just adds to the stories we all tell our friends when we get back home. No worries Allentown, we have stayed in plenty of shitty hotels along this tour, and even shadier truck stops and parking lots. So no hard feelings…

The tour has taken us across America and has been nothing short of amazing. We have had the opportunity to play venues and cities that we have only dreamed of until now. Not to mention the guys in Mushroomhead and HedPE have been great and we can’t thank them enough for making us a part of this tour! We have played for sold out crowds, and we have also played for crowds better fit for a funeral, but we are not going to mention any names to protect the innocent ;) We can tell you this, most of the crowds have been absolutely insane and we can’t thank them enough for making each night worthwhile. Having fans of both Mushroomhead and HedPE embrace your music is gratifying on many levels and we appreciate all the love and support!

Make sure you check out the tour dates on our website www.betterleftunsaidmusic.com, and if you have the time and money, come out to a show! See you on the road... - Better Left Unsaid

We recently caught up with the band on the road and spoke to drummer Brent Terry. You can read that interview here.

We cannot wait for everyone to hear what we have in store."

"Phoenix Amongst the Ashes" was recorded at frontman Erik Rutan's own Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with mastering handled by Alan Douches of West West Side. Artwork was once again handled by Paul Romano (Mastodon, Chiodos, The Acacia Strain, Godflesh, Earth Crisis) who has also created cover art for Hate Eternal’s "I, Monarch," "The Perilous Fight (DVD)," and "Fury & Flames."

Our fans really threw it down for us, again and again."
