Osyron Releases New Music Video

Out now as of Friday, May 14th, Calgary, Canada’s Osyron are ready to reintroduce the past to the present with the reissue of their 2017 album "Kingsbane" in a Deluxe Edition. The decision to re-release plus remix and remaster the record along with three rewritten and rearranged bonus tracks for Viper Queen, Griefmaker and Razor's Wind (Acoustic) with current drummer Cody Antsey (original recordings were with former drummer Trevor Cobb) was an easy one after the great reception the band received from new fans for their 2020 album "Foundations."

Osyron has always sensed the sound and production could be better for "Kingsbane", and with time on their hands during the Covid pandemic along with writing new music, they felt it was an opportunity to share a fresh take of this epic record for new listeners plus those who have been following them for years.

Drummer Cody Antsey adds:

"The world groans under the heavy burden these days which, according to our nature, should bring us all closer together. But it is precisely this feeling that is too often missing. In these times when the bands can’t get together when the fans can only experience the sweat and sound-filled nights in crowded venues in their memories; other ways of forwarding momentum have to be found. For this reason, we hope that all our fans - both old and new - can enjoy our updated and revitalized Deluxe Edition re-release of Kingsbane. We have big plans for our next record, and we absolutely cannot wait to get back to playing shows and writing together in the studio… Until then, stay safe, stay metal, and we hope to see you on the road someday soon!"

Kill The Imposter Shares New Lyric Video

Florida’s Kill The Imposter has a new lyric video out for their single "Mace," giving a glimpse into the upcoming violent, angst-filled EP "The Violence Sessions," the third release from KTI, following 2019’s "The Decimation" and 2020 "A Strain Of Agony."

Lyrically "The Violence Sessions" comes from a place of frustration and overall redemption for those frustrations. Highlighting world issues and also very close-to-home relationship problems. KTI truly hope the fans feel something powerful enough to move them. Guitarist Danny Arrieta shares the method in the madness:

"The lyrics drive home all the rage and anger I pour into the music to create this wave of violence that washes over you and needs release."

Vocalist Johnny Nobody adds:

"I think the whole idea of KTI is to create something that forces a response. We like to provoke movement or thought. If it's violent (moshing) then so be it. So as far as music affecting me lyrically I would say that if I can’t control my head from banging I would write something that accompanies that. I do write to the music as opposed to writing before I hear the song. I may jot down a phrase or something I can build off of but mostly it's the music the affects my mood." More...
