Nuclear Power Trio Reveals New Album Details

It‘s the moment everyone worldwide has been waiting for. The Nuclear Power Trio has returned bringing with them news on their sophomore release "Wet Ass Plutonium." The next chapter in this tyrannical trio‘s musical endeavors will be dropped on July 28, 2023 and features 9 new tracks. You can check out a video for the record's first single, "Nyetflix And Chill" below.

"Donny, Vladi P and I had a little tiff at the end of the aggressive touring cycle for the last record. We made up though and decided to spend some time in the supreme U.S. city of Miami, Florida. We went to a bunch of synthwave clubs, drove around in an orange Lambo, purchased white suits together, and watched a lot of Miami Vice. We really just fell in love with each other all over again and it was truly inspiring." - said Supreme Drummer Kimmy.

As a result of their inspirational South Beach sabbatical, the trio have concocted an LP that dwarfs the magnitude and ambition of their debut release. Arrangements include strings, real shred-harp, horn sections, and full-on synthwave leads. Elevating the songs to previously unforeseen heights are guest solos from Chris Broderick (In Flames, Megadeth), Ben Ellis (Scar Symmetry), Brian Hopp (Cephalic Carnage), and Scott Carstairs (Fallujah). Rounding out the epic compositions are orchestrations from Jesse Zuretti (Marvel), and for the first time on a Nuclear Power Trio song, vocals.

"We kept telling the label, We've done a great job, but it's not finished yet, and when we finish will be, in a position like it hasn't been, maybe ever,"said lead guitarist Donny. "You think about it, and you really ask anybody, really, what could make 2023 incredible, and they'll tell you it's Wet Ass Plutonium.

"Donny told me this was a ’trio'… One presidential harpist and a couple secret service horn sections later, there were over 750 tracks in the project. Anytime I bring it up he threatens to ’send me over the wall', whatever that means. I'm pretty sure this is a misappropriation of government funds, but I'm keeping my mouth shut." - quipped the band's producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Archspire). More...

Ithaca Announces First U.S. Tour Dates

Acclaimed UK metallic hardcore troupe Ithaca have released their incredible new video, "Fluorescent," alongside the news of their debut US tour. You can check out the video below.

The band comment: "Touring the US has been on our band bucket list since we started, and US outlets like Pitchfork and Revolver have always been incredibly kind to us, so we can’t tell you how excited we are.

"'Fluorescent' is the song on the album that comes from the deepest well of pain and raw sadness, but is one of the easiest to listen to. To reflect that, we made a video referencing pop singers of the 70s, who masked their trauma in the softest focus. A huge thank you to our guest MC, Ed Gamble, who’s generously supported this band and what we stand for for years."

The tour dates are as follows: More...

3Teeth Posts New Music Video Online

As the hits of the world keep coming, so does ripe new material from 3Teeth. Today, the modern industrial act provides another tempting taste of their anticipated new album with the release of "Slum Planet," featuring production from Doom composer Mick Gordon. It’s featured alongside a gripping new video from one of Hollywood’s leading directors Matteo Santoro (who grew up with 3Teeth frontman Alexis Mincolla).

Repeating the anthemically charged chorus, "I don’t care if you live or you die, as long as you’re willing to buy," the song takes aim at the ills of a sick planet obsessed with over-consumption at all costs, further admonished in an attention-grabbing mid-track diatribe from frontman and creative lead Alexis Mincolla.

As Mincolla explains the track, "An ecosystem? More like an ego-system. ‘Slum Planet’ is a monument to the hubris of mankind, to the ruthless exploitation of nature in the name of progress, to the willful blindness of those who chose profits over preservation."

See the video for "Slum Planet" below. More...

Crypta To Release New Album In August

Brazilian death metal outfit Crypta are preparing to unleash their second beast of an album, "Shades Of Sorrow," on August 4, 2023 via Napalm Records! Formed in 2019 by former Nervosa members Luana Dametto (drums) and Fernanda Lira (vocals), and now featuring guitarists Tainá Bergamaschi and Jessica di Falchi, Crypta broke the charts with their highly praised very first album, Echoes of the Soul, in 2021. The album received massive critical and fanbase acclaim for a debut release (including landing at #55 on the Official German Album Charts and debuting at #15 on both the US Hard Music Albums and Top New Artist Albums charts).

On "Shades Of Sorrow," the band stays true to their unique sound that was introduced on their first full-length, blending classic and modern death metal with significant extreme and black metal elements. Straight from the burning gates of death metal salvation, their brand new single, "Lord of Ruins," serves as a relentless harbinger of what the new album has to offer and a smashing dose of true Crypta sound, leaving the listener breathless.

The song is highlighted by a demonic, captivating official video that showcases the full power of the matchless combination.

Luana Dametto (drums) on "Lord of Ruins":
"’Lord of Ruins’ was our pick for a first single ‘cause it combines both melodic and aggressive melodies that are present throughout the whole album. So we thought it's a good representation of what to expect of the whole piece. It's also the final song of the record and it has a very impactful meaning. It’s the closure of the whole album concept and it also fits perfectly to the artwork concept we had in mind." More...
