News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-11-12 11:55 After months of anticipation from fans worldwide, 21st century hard rock leaders Of Mice & Men — vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley, guitarist Alan Ashby, drummer Valentino Arteaga, and guitarist Phil Manansala — announce their new album 'Defy', arriving in stores and online January 19, 2018.
Kicking off this next chapter with a bang, the band is sharing its new single "Warzone" today. The clip lives up to the song's explosive combination of metallic insurgency and irresistible hooks.
"We're excited to be debuting the music video for 'Warzone' today, a song from our new album, Defy" said Pauley "For us, this new album encapsulates and showcases our desire to return to an aggressive, live-oriented sound, and 'Warzone' is one of the heaviest tracks on the album. Because we love releasing new music as often as we can, it only seemed fitting to release it right before our massive EU/UK tour with In Flames and Five Finger Death Punch this Fall/Winter. So turn it up, and bang your head".
News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-11-12 11:53 Tonight Alive release a new video for 'Temple (Behind the Scenes)'. The band has also announced their upcoming album 'Underworld', due out January 12th via Hopeless Records.
'Underworld' musically symbolizes the totality of the band’s life coming full circle after experiencing their highest highs and lowest lows. They share an emotional journey into their personal shadows of the underworld, something they feel strongly we all possess within us.
Singer Jenna McDougall artfully awoke the feelings that she had repressed and used them as a driving force when writing her lyrics and recording this album. She dissected her darkness to get a deeper understanding of who she really is and what she truly loves and it provided her the power and confidence to push herself to remember at the core, why she loves music.
McDougall shares, “The album is called Underworld and I named it that because it reflects the ugly parts of me that I wasn't ready to see until now”.
hermal Entertainment is proud to welcome Nashville's SUMNER ROOTS to their roster. The band features former FRAMING HANLEY members Kenneth Nixon (vocals), Ryan Belcher (guitar) and Jonathan Stoye (bass). Rounding out the band will be Shad Teems on drums.
Kenneth Nixon states "When Ryan and I started writing music together again, we really had no plans or end-game for what it would be. After the first few sessions, we realized we were churning out some of the best stuff we had ever written together. Fast forward a few months, and we were contacted by Thermal who had heard our first song we had released ("Maeve") and really liked what they had heard. It was clear from speaking with them that, in addition to being a fan of what they had heard, they were also excited about how excited WE were about the material we were producing, and that they wanted to approach this as a true partnership; which, as we are all aware, cannot necessarily be said about most labels. In speaking with some of the other bands they've worked with, and the Thermal, we're even more stoked than we already were in where this band can go."
Ryan Belcher adds "It’s funny how things work out. When Nixon and I decided we wanted to do another project, we didn’t really set expectations on what it would turn into. At first, what we were writing had this sort of dark country sound - we’re both big Jason Isbell and John Paul White Fans – but we must have just missed making noise because it turned into a rock band pretty quick. Then once Shad Teems and Jon Stoye came on board it transformed into this whole new animal. The songs we’re writing now are the best material that I’ve ever been a part of. It’s a thrill to be working with such a talented group of musicians, and to have Thermal Entertainment at our back. We’ve got a great thing going here, and I know we’re all looking forward to watching this all unfold."
FRAMING HANLEY released three albums before calling it a day in August 2015. The Moment(2007), A Promise to Burn (2010) and The Sum of Who We Are (2014) have sold over a 1/4 million copies all charting in the Billboard Top 200. The albums produced the radio hits Hear Me Now, Lollipop, You Stupid Girl, Collide and Criminal. The band had toured extensively throughout North America, Europe and Australia playing many of the top festivals.
“We are excited to add Sumner Roots in the Thermal family of already amazing artist/bands. Nixon, Ryan and the guys bring a strong background of success with Framing Hanley to our organization. When this opportunity presented itself and we heard the direction Sumner Roots were heading with their music, we knew it was a fit. These guys have a wealth of talent and will continue their success as a major part of our roster” states Kyle Favors, President of Thermal Entertainment, LLC.
News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-11-12 11:50 Void of Vision have announced and released their punishing new EP 'Disturbia'today via UNFD. A smashing return the the roots of the Melbourne band, the first single lifted from the EP is "Ghost In The Machine", a brutal and relentless slice of classic hardcore rendered with a new-school twist. The single was was written during the band's debut European tour during a watershed moment.
According to frontman Jack Bergin, 'Disturbia' EP is the most honest piece of work he has ever been involved in. The title and concept of 'Disturbia' comes from a time when Bergin was in a state of flux and trying to fit in wherever he found himself.
"Over the past year, I haven't really been in a place which I could call 'home'. I'd found myself lost numerous times and had to revisit a lot of dark places I never wanted to reflect back upon to do so. The term 'Disturbia' is coined as the dark side of a neighbourhood, a place I became all too familiar with".
"There is no particular theme for the EP, this was really for an experience I wanted myself to have, seeking the hopeful relief of facing my own demons. In the most unselfish way possible, I wrote this EP for myself, because I needed to".
Following on from their debut album 'Children of Chrome' (2016), Void of Vision brought 'Disturbia' to life with co-writing sessions with label mates Jon Deiley (Northlane) and Sam Bassal (Ocean Grove), with Drew Fulk (Motionless in White / I Prevail) in the producer's chair. These external factors helped the band step out of their comfort zone and create an EP that's fresh yet familiar. A cathartic collection of songs for Bergin, he says he purged every single emotion he's bottled up in the past two years into 'Disturbia', which is the best thing he's done for his mental health in a long time.
I Am Noah reveal the cover artwork and tracklist of their new EP "Final Breed EP". Musically speaking, I AM NOAH continues exactly where they have stopped with “THE VERDICT”, but more mature and filled with even more anger. With four tracks addressing current socio-political problems, they present themselves more multifaceted, more adult and more motivated than ever before. The EP was recorded and produced by Aljoscha Sieg at Pitchback Studios. "Final Breed EP" will be released on 01.12.2018 through Bastardized Recordings.

Fuzz Evil: Formed in 2014, Fuzz Evil is a chug-heavy 3 Piece that tames the fuzziest guitar and bass tones on the planet and wields them to blast a monolithic speaker-ripping fuzzapocaplyse for your ears and soul. Raw and dirty in "Stooges-like" fashion with soaring soulful vocals. Fuzz Evil released their first single, “Glitterbones” on a 7” split with the California trio Chiefs on Battleground records in 2014. In 2016 they followed up the single with a full self-titled debut release on Battleground records. In the past few year they have gone through a few line-up changes.. The current line-up is Orgo Martinez on drums, Wayne Rudell on guitar and vocals, and his brother Joey Rudell on bass and vocals.
Switchblade Jesus: From the depths of Texas, Switchblade Jesus returns with a heaviness and deep grooves that succeed their previous recordings. Mixing southwestern boogie, desert-worn blues, retro-metal assault and fierce rocking into a sound that screams Texas–at times sanguine and starkly beautiful, at others full of damn sexy groove and assaulting violence can only describe the music of Texan power rocking, fuzzed out stoner blues trio, Switchblade Jesus.
Consisting of Eric Calvert (Vox/Guitar) Jon Elizondo (Drums) and new comer Chris Black (bass) to the fold to create a new chapter in Switchblade Jesus, more Doom and Gloom but no lack of the groove that the Texan's brought in the beginning.
Influenced by Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Motorhead, High on Fire, Melvins, Church of Misery, Deep Purple, ZZ Top, DOWN, Orange Goblin, Clutch, Sleep.
