September Mourning have been turning heads in the dark art and metal scenes for years, bringing a fusion of dark culture and fantasy based in the world of comic books to life on stage. Created by September Mourning frontwoman Emily Lazar and comic book legend Marc Silvestri, the comics “A Murder of Reapers” and “The Hand of Fate” (collectively “Volume I“, published by Top Cow/Image Comics) tell the tale of September, a human/reaper hybrid with no memory of her past. Empowered with supernatural gifts, she is driven to protect humanity from Fate and his Reapers.
This mysterious story – brought to life by September Mourning‘s potent mixture of dark pop, electronica and modern metal – can be experienced in auditory form via their latest Billboard-charting (#19, Heatseekers) Sumerian Records release, Volume II, out now (Amazon | iTunes | Spotify).
In late 2018, September Mourning released the singles “Empire“, “Glass Animals” (video below), and the third chapter of their story, “Trinity“. More music will be released in 2019 and “The Complete Collection“, a full graphic novel containing all four chapters of the story, will hit comic stores in early 2019.

“Amy Lee firmly re-establishes herself as one of rock’s pre-eminent vocalists, exhibiting an impressive range that still packs a wallop, this time cutting through a full orchestra.” – Variety

The five-piece will also be the headlining act at Rock Fest in Cadott, WI on Thursday, July 18th. The full tour routing is included below.

“Haunting, powerful, and packed with poetic truth, Lee’s voice is one of the strongest in the game—recognizable and unparalleled.” – Nylon
The accompanying “Synthesis Live” tour launched in 2017 was augmented by Synthesis producer & live electronicist, Will Hunt, cellist and composer Dave Eggar, and conductor Susie Seiter. The band combined their intense performances and timeless songwriting with a gorgeous live orchestra, resulting in an ethereal concert experience. For the second leg of the tour in 2018, Evanescence teamed up with Billboard Award-winning electronic violinist, Lindsey Stirling, for a successful co-headliner that was dubbed one of Live Nation’s Top 10 tours of the summer. Evanescence also released their new concert film, Synthesis Live, in October 2018, capturing the group’s incredible musicality.

Luckily it’s sweater weather outside, because you’ll want to don your best green during the Reneducation Tour! Phoenix, AZ’s Okilly Dokilly – the world’s only “Nedal” band – will kick off their tour on February 1, 2019 in San Diego, CA with openers Playboy Manbaby. The tour will visit several Western U.S. cities, coming to an end on March 2 in Austin, TX. Tickets are available now via individual venues or Okilly Dokilly‘s website. See below for all tour dates.
Bandleader Head Ned says: “We’re really excited about the Reneducation tour. We’ve got some new songs, new Neds, and some really great tour buddies in Playboy Manbaby. Our main mission with this tour is to thoroughly educate the masses on how to be the best Ned they can be. Us Neds can’t wait for Reneducation to begin.”
“Okilly Dokilly, Phoenix’s self-professed “world’s first Nedal band,” have got you covered, kicking out righteous riffs while clad in the traditional green sweater, pink shirt, and nerdy glasses of Homer Simpson’s eternally cheerful and devoutly Christian neighbor.” – Peter Helman, Stereogum
Established in 2015, Okilly Dokilly found success before even playing their first show, reaching viral phenomenon status after releasing just a few press photos and a four-song demo. Within two weeks, the band netted nearly 30,000 Facebook fans and was featured by numerous publications including Billboard, Time, The Independent, BBC, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Vice and many more.
“My spell check is intent on correcting ‘Dokilly’ to ‘docilely’, but docile they are not, with their music revolving around crunchy, lo-fi guitar and shrill, lurching synth.” – Christopher Hooton, The Independent
In 2016, the band released their debut album Howdilly Doodilly (stream/order) – a 13-track catalog filled with Flanderisms, rushing guitars and more than enough left-handed puns. In the wake of this release, the bespectacled five-piece dropped the official music video for their single, “White Wine Spritzer“, which has garnered over four million views to date.
Now, the gentlemen of Okilly Dokilly – currently billed as Head Ned (vocals), Dread Ned (drums), Shred Ned (guitar), Bed Ned (bass) and Zed Ned (synth) – are looking forward to a 2019 follow up release to Howdilly Doodilly, details pending.
“Their sound… is solid, formulaic metal, with soft, almost classically-voiced verses slashed by the requisite screaming choruses. Let’s just say Homer Simpson might think twice about calling them “Stupid Flanders(es)” after hearing it.” – Steve Huff, Maxim

Los Angeles-based five-piece The Crown Remnant recently announced the upcoming release of latest conceptual opus, The Wicked King: Part II, available for pre-order now via Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and Bandcamp. Pre-orders are available with “Inferno” as an instant-grat download. You can also pre-save the album via SpotifyHERE. The Wicked King: Part II, takes the listener on a dramatic, energetic joyride from start to finish!
Today, The Crown Remnant have revealed a brand new guitar playthrough video for their latest single, “Inferno“. Watch the video, featuring the skills of guitarist Will Ash, now alongside an interview via PureGrainAudio.com‘s Geared Up HERE.
Will Ash tells PureGrainAudio.com: “We’re lucky to have the opportunity to record with some amazing gear. This latest record, Part II, and The Wicked King: Part I were both recorded with a blend of amazing guitars and amps including a Mesa Mark IV, Peavey 5150 (block letter), and more. Of the three main guitars used to track the record, this Schecter Hellraiser was my main lead guitar.”
You can now watch two additional new videos from The Crown Remnant, including a live footage music video for “Inferno“, as well as part one of the band’s behind-the-scenes track-by-track video series, detailing the album’s intro track, “Into the Depths“.
The Crown Remnant have mastered the art of melodic, theatrical, yet hard-hitting heavy metal, and the world is about to take notice. Combining a variety of metallic influences ranging from modern metalcore and prog, thrash and more, The Wicked King: Part II acts as the second part of the band’s previous release, The Wicked King: Part I. Within the first month of its release, The Crown Remnant garnered over 10,000 streams of their first single cut from The Wicked King: Part I, entitled “Haunted“. The band plans to follow suit and beyond with The Wicked King: Part II.
The Wicked King: Part II is loosely based on thematic concepts of oppression and tyranny. Originally recorded as one long album, the band decided to split it into two releases – with The Wicked King: Part II acting as the “darker” side of the two. Part II addresses tales of betrayal, mortality, exploring the afterlife and more. Intertwined within these ideals are scattered lyrics pertaining to the character designed on the front cover of the album: The Wicked King. He remains an everlasting shadow of a forgotten king set on immortality, with his insatiable lust for never-ending life.
The Wicked King: Part IIwas recorded in multiple studios throughout Southern California, with the help of S&W Audio, and producer/engineer Tyler Ruehl (Noble, At The Skylines, Taipan, Lion I Am). After a rigorous tracking process, the songs were mixed by Robin Leijon (In Dying Arms, Atena, Eternal Void).
The Crown Remnant will hit this road this winter for select tour dates! See below for a list of all confirmed tour stops.
The Crown Remnant tour dates:
1/23 – Fresno, CA – Barmageddon 1/24 – San Francisco, CA – The Noise SF 1/27 – Eugene, OR – Old Nick’s 1/29 – Seattle, WA – The Funhouse 2/1 – Boise, ID – The Shredder 2/2 – Las Vegas, NV – Beauty Bar 2/3 – Phoenix, AZ – 51West

Technical metal icons Gorod have released their brand new 10-track album, Aethra, today via Overpowered Records! The album can be ordered digitally via Amazon, iTunes and Google Play, and in several physical formats via Overpowered Records‘ merchandise site HERE.
In celebration of today’s release, Gorod have revealed an epic, cinematic music video for the track “Bekhten’s Curse”, produced by Disclosure Productions and available to view now via RevolverHERE.
Vocalist Julien Deyres tells Revolver: “Out of all of the songs on the album, these lyrics required the most research. I am not at all a specialist in Egyptian antiquity, but in doing my research on lunar deities I discovered this extraordinary story about a so-called miraculous healing of Ramesses II‘s sister-in-law. This legend is engraved on a stela that is currently in the Louvre Museum and is a proven historical fake. In this song, I am playing the role of a Bekhten’s city survivor, which was completely destroyed to restore a form of eventual reality… because way too often, popular legends such as this one were created to hide misdeeds by those who have the power and wish to be considered as heroes…”
Produced and recorded by Gorod guitarist/mastermind Mathieu Pascal in his own Bud Studio, mixed at Dugout Studio by the outstanding Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Behemoth, Decapitated, In Flames) and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory at Obey Mastering (Decapitated, Nightrage), Aethrais a profound progression in terms of production, songwriting and arrangements.
With Aethra, Gorod transports the listener to a tragic and melancholic universe – a completely new level of darkness – while preserving what Gorod considers their tried and true core sound: incomparable groove, remarkable dexterity, and relentless technicality. But all the while, the band never sacrifices earworm hooks and unforgettable riffage.
Aethra track listing:
2) Bekhten’s Curse
4) The Sentry
6) And the Moon Turned Black
7) Chandra and the Maiden
8) Goddess of Dirt
10) A Light Unseen
As a live band through and through, Gorod plan to bring their trademark power and precision to North America on a full tour in support of Aethra. Before coming to the states, Gorod will tour in Europe and the UK with headliners Beyond Creation, as well as fellow support artists Entheos and Brought By Pain.

Last month, heavy metal frontrunners Incite – lead by frontman Richie Cavalera – announced select details about their upcoming fifth full-length album, Built To Destroy. Produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence) and mastered by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed), Built to Destroy is a visceral, urgent, voracious distillation of modern metal with reverence for the past, and boasts a progressed, matured sound for Incite. Incite can now announce that Built To Destroy will hit the metal masses with full force on January 25, 2018 via MinusHead Records.
Last month, Incite dropped a new single, “Ruthless Ways”, originally revealed last month via SiriusXM Liquid Metal. Listen HERE.
In celebration of the album’s release, Incite will kick off a massive North American tour with headliners Soulfly and direct support artist Kataklysm beginning on the same day! The tour will visit several cities across North America, coming to an end on February 26 in Los Angeles, CA. The tour will feature additional support from Chaoseum, Alukah and Skinflint on select dates.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 19 at 10:00 AM local time. Tickets are available via each venue. See below for all confirmed tour dates!
Incite vocalist Richie Cavalera says, “Metalheads! We’re fired up to hit the road with Soulfly and Kataklysm and all the other killer bands on this bill. This will be the first tour in support of our new album, so expect to hear some new Incite tracks at these raging shows!”

Nearly 15 years into a career in which everything they’ve accomplished was earned and nothing was taken for granted, Incite bridges the gap between various metal sub-genres, but one thing is for certain – you will be banging your head in no time. This is a band who will open for Gorgoroth one night and Cancer Bats the next, converting true-believers out of everyone who crosses their path.
As renegade disciples of trailblazing metal architects like Pantera, Slayer, Sepultura, and Machine Head, Incite raises the torch for trend-killing and hipster-smashing metal. Incite is as much a part of the fabric of the style championed by Lamb of God as the surge of newer bands like Power Trip. Incite perfected their signature brand of extreme sounds by playing shows with DevilDriver, Crowbar, Brujeria, Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy, and Six Feet Under.
