Light The Torch To Release New Album In June

Light The Torch - Howard Jones [vocals], Francesco Artusato [guitar], and Ryan Wombacher [bass] — will release their new album and second full length "You Will Be the Death of Me" on June 25 via Nuclear Blast. The band has dropped the video for the first track, "Wilting in the Light," which was directed by Ramon Boutviseth in L.A and can be seen below.

"You Will Be the Death of Me has been a journey — even without the pandemic," says Jones. "This album has been emotional and rewarding in every way, and we couldn't be more excited to finally release it. Maybe there was a bit of desperation writing and recording these songs."

He shares, "Going through personal turmoil and watching Francesco deal with injuries, we knew this could change things drastically for us. The album was a welcome distraction, and we dumped every emotion we had into YWBTDOM. To watch Fran heal and become an even more complete artist in front of my eyes has been amazing to watch. Everything we went through individually and together with this album drew Fran, Ryan, and I together. I couldn't be more proud of this album knowing I made it with my family." More...

Flotsam And Jetsam Releases New Music Video

Legendary thrash metallers Flotsam And Jetsam have unveiled the first single of their upcoming studio album "Blood in the Water" via the official music video for the pummeling track "Burn the Sky" which can be watched below.

"While we were in the process of selecting which songs we would use for the album’s videos, ‘Burn the Sky’ was the only one that was on everyone’s lists consistently" – commented front-man Eric A.K. during a full-band video interview aired this past Friday via Bravewords and Sonic Perspectives – "This track has some guitar work by Mike and Steve that are second to none.

"We really had a hell of a time figuring out which songs actually include in this album, because we don’t feel we have any fillers" – added guitarist Michael Gilbert. When asked about why the band’s sound have evolved throughout the last albums to a much heavier output, he said: "I don’t want anyone feeling we are getting fucking old. As long as we continue doing this, we are gonna bring it. Our sound changed through the years influenced by many factors, but what you are listening to now is who we are and will continue to be.

"The recording of this album was very much a natural process, we really worked together as a team to make sure that everything that needed to be on the record, was indeed on it. I haven’t listened to it for a while and I went back and listened recently, and it really gives the impression that we are really angry." commented drummer Ken Mary

"Blood In The Water,” which is set to be released on June 4th via AFM Records, was once again mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (U.D.O., Volbeat, Amaranthe, Powerwolf), who also worked on the band’s previous record “The End of Chaos,” released on January 18th, 2019. More...
