Shattered Sun

News image

Shattered Sun is an up-and-coming metal-core band and I was extremely honored and proud to engage these new metal artists. Being a Hispanic and sharing a love for the genre made this interview a bit special. How so? The entire musical line of this band happens to be Hispanic. My conversation with vocalist Marcos Leal was quite insightful; we touched on a lot within a short period of time. The direction and future of this newly minted project was astonishing. Shattered Sun is a sextet hailing from the small town of Alice, Texas. Their sound provides hard hitting riffs laced with Leal's unique vocal assault. The band provides ripping arrangements tooled in advance by its founder and guitarist Daniel Trejo along with input from their drummer, Robert Garza, who lays down some fierce acrobatic drumming. I can assure you it's a collaborative effort as the vocalist describes it and the musical foundation is laid brick by brick. Shattered Sun is a true testimony to the hard driving sprit of its members, a definite cohesiveness that eludes many bands today. They've all grown up in an area riddled with violence, gangs and drugs. All too often we hear how the...

Chiodos: Devil

News image

Chiodos is back with a vengeance on their fourth album, "Devil". The band has produced a sonic masterpiece that takes the listener on a musical and emotional roller coaster ride. Original vocalist Craig Owens and drummer Derrick Frost are back in the fold, and form the twisting and turning track for the rest of the band to ride upon. Keyboardist Bradley Bell, bassist Matt Goddard, and guitarists Pat McManaman and Thomas Erak play with wild abandon and stellar technical prowess. Owens uses every facet of his vocal ability to deliver the full range of emotions necessary to match his lyrics. He is the rare vocalist who can sing softly and sweetly, loudly and angrily, and everything in between. "Devil" is full of great songs of all styles of rock.

Here’s huge news that will delight doom fans all over the U.S. English doom haulers Electric Wizard, who are one of the biggest, if not the biggest doom band in the world, will embark on a U.S. tour in 2015. It is the first time that the band will touch down on U.S. soil to tour in 12 years.
 
Yes, it’s been a long time since Electric Wizard have toured here, but they are decidedly worth the wait.
 
Support will come from Satan's Satyrs, featuring Wizard bassist Clayton Burgess.
 
The band will tour in support of Time to Die, their 2014-released opus, which came out via Spinefarm Records and was universally praised as one of the band's best.

VENOM Reveal Stunning From The Very Depths Cover Art!

 
 
VENOM announced the January 27 release of From The Very Depths (Spinefarm Records) last week, news that was met with elation among the metal community, from tastemakers to fans. The metal icons, who are pretty much responsible for authoring their own genre, have followed up the album release news by sharing the two-horns-up album artwork.
 
The cover is visually arresting, featuring skeletal beings bathed in red and orange tones. The image is dominated by the instantly recognizable VENOM logo, and is a natural successor to the artwork for previous album, 2011's Fallen Angels, also released via Spinefarm.
 
And to think this is merely the cover! The album's accompanying music slays, and early praise indicates that this could be one VENOM's best releases...ever. Even the album title is 100 per cent 'Venomous', referencing the band's infamous live intro tape.
 
Screw the holiday season. January 27 can't get here fast enough!
