The Agonist Posts New Music Video Online

September 2019 saw melodic death metal juggernaut, The Agonist, release their sixth studio album, "Orphans," via Rodeostar Records. With "Orphans" the band delivered their most extreme, melodic, and larger-than-life sounding record to date.

En Minor To Release Debut Album In September

En Minor, the latest project from Down/former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo, has announced that they will release their debut full length album, "When The Cold Truth Has Worn Its Miserable Welcome Out," on September 4th through Housecore Records in North America and Season Of Mist in Europe.

Other material from Anselmo’s band of underground lore, Body & Blood, has evolved into En Minor songs. Although Philip is most well known for extreme metal and rock, here we get to hear a softer side of his vocal chords, but lyrically is heavy as anything. Joining forces again with Schteve Taylor, tapping into his side that thrived when he was in Woven Hand and 16 Horsepower; Kevin Bond (Superjoint Ritual) carrying on his old Body & Blood vibe, and an extrememly talented group of seasoned musicians, Anselmo’s En Minor is a blatant change of pace, and we embrace all of the melancholy oddness without compromise.
