News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-03 10:02 One of the most progressive voices in alternative rock, San Francisco’s I The Mightyannounced today that their highly-anticipated new album "Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go" will be released on October 20th via Rude Records worldwide (Equal Vision Records in North America).
Along with this announcement, the band also released “Silver Tongues”, the first single from the album. “Silver Tongues”, which features Tilian Pearson of Dance Gavin Dance, is a pulsing wall of frenzied percussion, ethereal synths and driving, delay-soaked guitar over which Brent Walsh assertively declares “Never again will I spend all the precious time that I have left, on those who oppose anyone doing what they love”.
As Walsh puts it:
“Today couldn't get here fast enough. This album is the culmination of years of inspiration and energy… we couldn't be more excited to begin this next chapter with “Silver Tongues”. Tilian has been a friend whose art we've greatly appreciated for some time now and we’re thrilled to have him as such a prominent part of a song we felt so close to”.

It’s an ode to the fear we all feel when we meet new situations. Ultimately, we all have a choice to embrace the fear, or erase it. We’ve been given the platform to spread our music to more listeners than ever thanks to the opportunities UNFD have given us. The team have been nothing but welcoming and we are beyond thankful to be working alongside not only some renowned bands, but a dedicated and knowledgeable organisation”.
News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-02 21:22 After a lengthy hiatus hardcore outfit NO WARNING are back with their third album Torture Culture, their first since 2004's Suffer, Survive.
Torture Culture is due for release via Last Gang/SPV on the 13th October and to coincide with the announcement NO WARNING have released new single 'In The City.'
We have attempted to express the condition of the human mind that is an outcome of being brainwashed by corporate controlled social media, through a modern and classic feeling hardcore album,"explains Ben Cook of the band. "Kind of like the scene in Clockwork Orange, when Alex has the lid locks over his eyes and is being forced to watch horrific footage over and over again. We are trying to manifest that torturous feeling; that in a time like this even if you want to look away you can't escape the propagandized media, especially amidst the thick of an overpopulated garbage pumping world. The evolution we have experienced both mentally and physically, and the day-to-day panic and anxiety that we feel is actually a result of our own species' selfish and repulsive impulses."
On September 8th NO WARNING will set out on a North American tour, playing 20 shows before the tour's conclusion on October 1st.
Torture Culture tracklisting:
1. Headless 2. In The City 3. Unreality 4. Beyond The Law 5. Total Surrender 6. Hell Realm 7. Like A Rebel 8. Alleys Of Mind 9. Sanctuary 10. Animal 11. No Influence (From The Outside World) 12. Torture Culture

From the band, Nathan Opposition says: “Forging ahead, I have kept the all seeing eye on the fallen angel to keep my faith in his works. This album is a work made of worship songs to our Lord and Master Satan. The collective efforts of our unholy Trinity Lucifer, Satan and The Devil. In light of darker times, I find it necessary to express myself in a way that teaches on a higher level.”
On the record deal: “I’m very excited to release Ancient VVisdom's 4th album “33” with 3 different amazing record labels! Argonauta Records in Italy for CD version, Magic Bullet Records out of Oceanside California doing our digital release, and DHU Records from the Netherlands is going to be doing some sick vinyl colors. It’s a collective. All excellent people, working hard to release underground and independent music. I'm a fan of many different artists and musicians, it's quite rewarding to see everyone in an underground culture take the initiative and make things fucking happen for all of us, as fans of music and for the ones making music as well.
About the new album: “33 is a master number. It is also the age Christ was crucified. 33 is the age of the peak of existence. It is the age I am. 33 is the answer. I've been fortunate enough to do the devils work and continue to spread the message to the masses. This album is very important to us. It has symbolic meaning and melody that serves the words purposefully. My brother Michael and I are grateful and are pleased to give you “33”. This is our favorite offering to date and we hope you all enjoy it.”
The first single “Light of Lucifer” is out now ANCIENT VVISDOM “33” will be released worldwide on CD edition by ARGONAUTA Records and available from October 13th, 2017.
