Toothgrinder Streaming "Diamonds For Gold"

New Jersey's Toothgrinder will release "Nocturnal Masquerade," the band's Spinefarm Records debut, on January 29th.

The track "Diamonds for Gold," which features Periphery vocalist Spencer Sotelo, can also now be heard below courtesy of Loudwire.com.

"'Diamonds for Gold' is one of those songs on the album that makes us proud that we have decided to take a leap into the unknown," the band told Loudwire. "The track is a perfect introduction to the more ethereal side of Toothgrinder. It really sets the mood for the more dynamic tonal pieces of the record. A break from the chaos is exactly what Nocturnal Masquerade has called for. We had a lot of fun watching the song come together and hope that translates to the outside listener." More...

Exumer Reveals New Album Details

German thrash metal band Exumer has announced "The Raging Tides" as the band's upcoming fourth full-length, set to be released January 29th via Metal Blade Records. Listen in to the title track below.

Recorded with producer/engineer Waldemar Soychta at Waldstreet Sound in Dortmund, Germany, "The Raging Tides" is a deliberate and violent thrash attack that stays true to the band's 30 year legacy.

Conceptually and lyrically, vocalist Mem V. Stein has based the bulk of the record around human suffering - specifically "caused by torture or other means for political, religious, or personal gain for the individuals/organizations who inflict the pain," Stein asserts. Inspired by a wide range of books and articles, the title of the album itself, according to Stein, "represents the ebb and flow of human misery and despair around the globe."

1. The Raging Tides
2. Brand Of Evil
3. Catatonic
4. Sacred Defense
5. Welcome To Hellfire
6. Sinister Souls
7. Shadow Walker
8. There Will Always Be Blood
9. Dark Reflections
10. Death Factory
11. Forever My Queen (Pentagram cover; bonus track)
12. Hostage To Heaven (Grip Inc. cover; bonus track feat. Rob Dukes, Waldemar Sorychta, Markus Freiwald) More...

Sunday Old School: Believer

It’s quite hard to think of how a Christmas special could be done in a column exclusively about metal music. We came close last year with a look at British hit makers, Slade, who are perhaps best known for their song, "Merry Xmas Everyone." This year, we’re ringing in the holidays with a band who perhaps have a more traditional take on this season, as perhaps do some of our readers who are also subscribers to the Christian faith, or should I say, consider them self to be a Believer?

Have you forgiven me for that terrible pun yet? Then let’s move on to Believer, a band formed in Colebrook, Pennsylvania , that was formed in 1986 by vocalist/guitarist Kurt Bachman and drummer Joey Daub with bassist Howe Kraft and a second guitarist, Dave Baddorf joining soon after. Initially, their music was very melodic and the group demonstrated this with their demo, "The Return," in 1987, which earned them a deal with R.E.X. Records. More...
