Hailing from Finland, Wolfshead's style is pure old school heavy metal, heavy guitar riffs, growling bass, pounding drums with bluesy, leather-lunged whisky-scented vocals on top. Taking their main influences from such acts as Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Venom and the whole NWOBHM movement, Wolfshead manages to combine almost everything from heavy rock music from between 1967 and 1985 to their own unique blend. They write songs about lycanthropy, living deads, witch hunts, Cthulhu Mythos and of course, heavy metal itself.
The name of their debut album is "Leaden", meaning heavy. And that is what it is. It could have been called "This is heavy metal". LEADEN will be released on physical support and digital download/streaming next OCTOBER 27, 2017 via ROCKSHOTS RECORDS.

News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-10 20:43 TRAUMA’s debut “Comedy Is Over” will be re-relased on 22nd of September 2017 by Deformeathing Production. The original tapes, recorded at S.L. Studio, have been carefully remastered by Piotr Gruenpeter from Satanic Audio, brand new layout has been created by Archart Studio. The rerelease also features a bonus track.
The „Comedy Is Over” is undoubtedly a milestone for Polish Death Metal scene. Released in 1996, it was way ahead of its time by its musical visionary, compositional bravery and, despite a debut, maturity in arrangements as well as uncommon lyrics.
The album received plenty of good words, being reviewed by the biggest magazines worldwide. But the issue was that it couldn’t be bought anywhere for more than 15 years… until now.
Read Mister’s comments on the case: „Listening to these songs after all these years I felt like I was watching a family album and I have to admit it brought a tear to eye. I saw how the time had changed us, how it had brought the experience and had been giving us the freedom in creating our own musical space. Suddenly all the memories were back, I could feel the climate, the emotions that had been driving us, and all the musical inspirations that had defined TRAUMA. It’s all engraved on the „Comedy Is Over” music and has a very sentimental value for me. It tastes like wine after 20 years – it has a clear aroma, temper and strength. In my personal opinion, the album still sounds very honest and up-to-date. So, I guess I have no other option but to wish you TRAUMATIC experiences after feeding your ears with the remastered „Comedy Is Over””
Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-10 20:39 Emo pop-rockers Daisyhead have had a tough year. After numerous problems with their van caused them to cancel dates, they found themselves at home with no money and no way to continue their dream. The band feared this may be the end of their life on the road – albeit for the immediate future -- but instead, they rose up. Working multiple jobs while recording an EP and planning a tour to Europe, Daisyhead have finally come out on the other side, and they're better for it.
Daisyhead took that adversity and transformed it into "Cute Little Fingers," a track that ditches their last albums ultra-fuzzed out guitars in favor for polished pop rock influences like Dashboard Confessional and Taking Back Sunday. Still, the Tennessee-based outfit haven't lost any of their grit or emotion. The song tells a gripping, angst-filled tale about the way people can push you down without even a second thought.
"Timing hardly ever fails to be the enemy. Overwhelmed with confusion and only recognizing the sense of rejection, a pattern of temporary stints of hope became more seen as delusions as these words were written," said singer Michael Roe. "'Cute Little Finger' brings to light what it's like to know that humans are able to destroy you without knowing they're doing so. How can you expect someone to know what they're doing to you when all they want is to get better themselves? Sometimes, when the timing is just off enough, a crash and burn outcome is inevitable."
Cute Little Fingers comes off Daisyhead's new two-song EP Purple & Blue out on No Sleep Records. The EP is a culmination of everything the band faced in the last few months – from member changes to realizing their strength in writing new music.
"Purple & Blue is more than just a two-song EP. It is an embodiment of what the band has become," said Roe. "Through countless member changes and songs having to be written without having a full unit, these two songs are the first to be written and released by the members that have earned their place in Daisyhead. Everything came quickly and naturally, and these songs are meant to show everyone what musical direction we are heading in."
To support their new release, Daisyhead are heading to the UK and Europe for the very first time with Sibling. They've also got a number of U.S. dates with pop-punkers Nominee.
News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-10 20:37 Sleep On It has announced the upcoming release of their highly-anticipated debut full-length “Overexposed” on November 3rd via Rude Records (Equal Vision in North America). The album was produced by Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends) with additional production from Derek DiScanio of State Champs. On the upcoming album and new song the band says “We started writing ‘Overexposed’ before our last EP was released. We wanted to write a cohesive record that ebbed and flowed; we wanted it to tell a story. There’s a level of inherent fear and anxiety that accompanies the pursuit of whatever fills us with passion. We sacrifice the refuge of convention and make ourselves vulnerable in the process. We let go of and grew apart from, people in our lives for one reason or another. We also learned to hold on to the ones worth fighting for. “Distant” deals with that fear and anxiety of letting anyone close to us, while learning how to trust through our own self-aware vulnerability. We completely poured ourselves into this record and we can’t wait to share it with you. Thank you”.
