Suicide Silence

The wait is finally over, as Suicide Silence have triumphantly returned with their truly career defining moment in the form of their self-titled new, full-length album set for a Feb 24th release via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Here’s what vocalist Eddie Hermida told us about the album in an interview (read the full interview here) we did with him prior to recording:

We’re looking to burn bridges, man. We’re looking for kids to either sink or swim with us. If you’re at all hesitant about our band, if you don’t get our motives and if you don’t get our position in the world and you don’t get where our music comes from, then you’re gonna be one of those fans that gets left behind. It’s one of those things where this next future, this next road for us is gonna be something that is really gonna put us to the test for ourselves more than anybody else. It’s almost one of those things where it might even completely bomb, and we don’t care. It’s one of those things where we’re literally at a point that we’re not allowed to not take chances anymore. We’re not allowed to play the safe road anymore.

So Eddie holds nothing back here, saying that this album will be way different. And yes, “Doris” does have clean vocals and the signature Ross Robinson production, but the core Suicide Silence sound is still intact. Check out the video and more comments from the band inside. (more…)

log-2016-band

Lamb Of God

When Lamb of God recorded last year’s VII: Sturm und Drang, they held onto a song they felt was special enough to stand on its own: “The Duke.” The track, which finds frontman Randy Blythe singing about mortality, is dedicated to Wayne Ford, a fan of the band whom the singer befriended in late 2012. Ford was suffering from leukemia and after Blythe heard his story – captured on the band’s website – it left a profound impact on him.

To honor Ford, the group is releasing an EP, also titled The Duke, which features the hard-rock–leaning song along with another unreleased track that dates back to their Wrath LP, the thrashy, heavy “Culling,” which they finished up especially for this EP, along with live recordings of three Sturm und Drangtracks.

Testament

Legendary bay area thrash metal giants Testament have released the title track for their upcoming 12th album, Brotherhood Of The Snake, which will be released on October 28, 2016 via Nuclear Blast. Recently, we had the chance to chat with vocalist Chuck Billy about the new album. In the soon-to-be-posted interview, Chuck further elaborated on his recent comments that “he didn’t have fun making the album,” (read here) saying that the recording process was “something the band just maybe had to go through,” even at this stage in its career. He also described his vocal style on the album as similar to the band’s classic album, Practice What You Preach, and its previous effort, 2012’s Dark Roots of the Earth.

We also discussed more details about the album, including its theme and individual songs. Look out for the interview in its entirety in the near future, but for now, watch the lyric video for Brotherhood Of The Snake inside:
