GHOST BATH: Atmospheric Black Metal Merchants Reveal Starmourner Details; New Track Streaming + Preorders Available

GHOST BATH

Ghost Bath

GHOST BATH is pleased to announce the release of Starmourner on April 21st via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Since their inception, GHOST BATH has played atmospheric black metal focused on depression, tragedy, purgatory, and earthly wonders. Starmourner takes these concepts to a higher level. It explores joy (instead of sorrow), paradise (instead of purgatory), and the cosmos (instead of earth). Most importantly however, it explores ecstasy — instead of tragedy — as its basic human emotion. With over seventy-two minutes of heavy, melodic, and dramatic black metal, it is GHOST BATH‘s most ambitious undertaking yet.

Album Review: Striker – Striker

Striker Album Review

STRIKER – STRIKER

Release Date: February 24th, 2017

Bands like Striker have come many times before. Bands that are influenced so clearly by classic metal groups that they actually get to the point where it’s hard to believe you’re listening to an album in the year it was released and not some long lost recording of a traditional metal legend of choice. While it’s rare rare that these bands sound bad, it is very common for them to seem to be little more than a boring rehash. Usually when reviewing bands like of this traditional ilk, it all starts to sound the same and I end up repeating myself from previous reviews. The prevailing thought however when hearing this self-titled Striker album is the question, why the hell do I like it so much? Continue reading

Album Review: Sepultura – Machine Messiah

Artist: Sepultura

Album: Machine Messiah

Release Date: Jan 13th, 2017

Record Label: Nuclear Blast

I have to be truthful, it has been some time since I last listened to Sepultura. I grew up with their classics like so many other metalheads did. Those classics like Chaos A.D. or Beneath the Remains. Now, we have to show respect to Derrick Green whose tenure with the band is longer than Max Cavalera’s yet we are still talking about Arise or Roots. Blah. Machine Messiah has a lot to offer!

Album Review: A Breach of Silence – Secrets

A Breach of Silence Secrets Album Review

A BREACH OF SILENCE – SECRETS

Release Date: February 10th 2017

Secrets is the name of the upcoming third album by A Breach of Silence. I must be doing something right because for the third time I was asked to review it. Whether or not I am doing something right, you can bet the band is doing plenty. The transition between their first album Dead or Alive and their second album The Darkest Road saw the band transition from being a pure and simple metalcore band, cliché’s and all, to a band making songs with a bit more substance. That told me I could only expect great things from Secrets.

All Else Fails to release “The Forever Lie” Friday Feb. 17, 2017

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada based ALL ELSE FAILS are back with their follow up to their 2013 award winning EP ‘Fucktropolis’. The band’s new EP ‘The Forever Lie’ due out Feb 17th via their indie label Suicidal Bride Records continues the band’s aggressively dark brand of metal that infuses a variety of elements that includes experimental, classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.

Vocalist / guitarist Barret Klesko sums up the EP: “‘The Forever Lie’ is the idea that if we fall in line, we will be taken care of. That we can work hard like our parents and we will be successful. It’s that our lives will ultimately have meaning, and that we deserve to be happy. The forever lie is the so called American dream, and that everything will be okay.”

The band recently embarked on their first tour of India performing at the Unmaad & Alcheringa Festivals.

EP Review: All Else Fails – The Forever Lie

Artist: All Else Fails

Album: The Forever Lie (EP)

Release Date: Feb 17th, 2017

Label: Suicidal Bride Records

I am not too fond of EPs. It is not about All Else Fails, but about me being a grumpy old-school metal head. Albums and their stories used to mean something. I am a Middle-Eastern. We had to find an album as a copy of “god knows how many” versions and search for lyrics, etc. I remember asking my “elder” friends for lyric sheets when No Prayer for the Dying came out. I was 8. Sorry, All Else Fails Continue reading
