Claudio Ravinale Reveals New Band Infernalizer

Infernalizer is a brand new creature conceived and brought to life by the creative mind of Claudio Ravinale to portray his own take on the heavy metal genre. Ravinale is best known as the vocalist of Italian death metal veterans Disarmonia Mundi, whom have achieved worldwide recognition with their high-octane melo-death throughout two decades and featuring Bjorn "Speed" Strid (Soilwork) among their ranks, along with being in other recognizable bands such as The Silverblack, 5 Star Grave and The Stranded.

Heavily influenced by 80's metal acts such as Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, Danzig, and Ravinale's new project Infernalizer relies on the use of gloomy keys and eerie samples, paying homage to more somber gothic rock acts like Type O Negative and The Sisters Of Mercy. Vocally closer to contemporary acts like Rob Zombie and Wednesday 13, the range of influences also include evocative cinematographic soundscapes that provide Infernalizer's songs with a more solemn and nocturnal atmosphere.

"Leaving So Soon?" is the first single chosen to introduce Infernalizer. The track was produced by NeroArgento at AExeron Studio (Turin, IT) and mastered at Sterling Sound Studio (Nashville, TN) by legendary Grammy Award-winning mastering engineer Ted Jensen (Guns N' Roses, Korn, Pantera, Alice In Chains). Providing a modern take on the concept of heavy metal, the song features crooning vocals alternated with a more harsh yet still melodic tone adding a layer of evocative keys and samples to a solid foundation deeply rooted in 80s metal sound.

Isle Of The Cross Shares "Paradigm" Music Video

Progressive-death metal band Isle Of The Cross have unleashed their new video "Paradigm" in support of their debut album "Excelsis" released this past February via Rockshots Records. You can check it out below.

The band explains the track in further detail:

"'Paradigm' expresses the agony of waiting for his love to hopefully arrive in this enigmatic world he has been subjected to in the afterlife. He promises he will not cross over into eternity without her. The common theory of spirits/ghosts living in an in-between world where they have a choice to cross over or not is a common theme throughout the album and the main theme altogether of 'Paradigm.'"

Ravage Streaming New EP As Lyric Video

Ravage, the heavy metal band from Boston, today released the band's new EP, "The Worldwide Resistance", in the form of a free streaming, full-length lyric video made available exclusively through the New Wave Of Traditional Heavy Metal Full-Albums Channel on YouTube.

The video was made with fan-contributed artwork and videos centred around the song's lyrics, however when photos of the content were leaked, the band received a significant backlash from angry supporters of US President Donald Trump.

Singer Al Ravage commented, "It's really sad that in this poisoned political climate we are unable to have a discussion about the state of things in a civil way. We can't present a piece of art that expresses our feelings about the times without people going crazy and harassing each other and threatening each other. The lyrics of this songs we've released don't even mention the President, but I've personally had Trump supporters try to contact my place of business to try to have me fired from my day job. Cancel culture is out of control and it's taking place on all sides of the political spectrum.

"As for the songs, this is some of the first new original music we've released in a couple of years and it features the kind of melodic memorable tunes that are our signature with plenty of guitar shredding and a good dose of thrash metal heaviness. I think fans of trad metal and thrash will enjoy it regardless of the message of the lyrics, but have an open mind, take a listen, and whatever you think. It's FREE to stream it and proceeds from the sale of the vinyl version are being donated to the ACLU... get out there and vote tomorrow and let your voice be heard! Don't let people silence you, but try to keep it civil and make America proud." More...
