Los Angeles, CA — Rise Records is excited to announce that Jetty Bones, the musical project led by Ohio-based musician, Kelc Galluzzo, has joined their roster of artists. In celebration of the news, the band has shared a new music video for their single, “the part:”, a standout song from their third EP, – (pronounced “hyphen”), which debuted earlier this year via Take This To Heart Records. Stream/download the effort HERE, and watch the new visual HERE. Jetty Bones is also currently working on new music, expected next year on Rise. 

Kelc has a message for Jetty Bones fans about this announcement and next chapter in the band’s career: “Growing up in Ohio, we used to have this local scene saying about how the dream was to ‘live in Ohio, start a band, then sign to Rise Records.’ Well, 12 years later, I finally get to say that those teenage dreams are a reality: Jetty Bones has officially signed to Rise and will be putting out a full-length record next year. As the final piece of the – era, here’s a music video and a promise to keep building this community around support and vulnerability as a part of the Rise family. Thank you for reminding me that fighting for passion, recovery, and the strength to help others has not been in vain. I don’t know if I can ever find the words to accurately explain how much I needed all of you (and still do), but I’m going to try my best for as long as you let me.” 

Channeling the band’s namesake, Betty Jones, who broke out of her all girls’ Catholic school to remove herself from a situation where she wasn’t happy, Jetty Bones exists to encourage people to rise above everyday situations and push for a life with better meaning.

“The sound of an artist totally in control over her craft and her story.” –Chorus.fm

The group’s 2017 EP, Old Women, was a story of progress, growth, and the development of human connection – something often overlooked today. In a world so focused on outward appearances, Old Women takes you on a journey through one girl’s mental and emotional attempts to attach to something in a more genuine way, that something being other people. Its brisk, contemplative follow up, – (pronounced “hyphen”), is a bridge between Kelc’s journey to healthier interpersonal bonds and a future colored by close friends, As Jetty Bones still functions with Kelc’s crystal clear delivery and racing thoughts at its center and a network of trusted musicians bouncing in the margins, – is a testament to the artist’s growth, depth, and warmth. 

Currently on Tour in the U.S. With New Found Glory

Jetty Bones is also currently on tour in the U.S. supporting New Found Glory, along with Hawthorne Heights and Free Throw. The remaining run of dates continues tonight in Lancaster, PA at Chameleon Club and wraps next week at Saturn in Birmingham, AL on November 26.

The epic fight of crown prince Angus McFife against evil continues…

At the end of the second GLORYHAMMER album, Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards, Planet Earth had been destroyed by the Hootsman, with an explosion so powerful it ripped a hole in the very fabric of spacetime. And yet, Zargothrax was still not defeated, for he managed to use his last shreds of power to escape through the dimensional rift. Vowing to defeat the evil sorcerer, Angus McFife XIII followed him into the portal, with no idea where it might lead… 

The galaxy waits in fear for the return of Angus McFife XIII, who fought the greatest battle the galaxy has ever heard of, against the evil sorcerer Zargothrax. All hope of the Kingdom of Fife lies in the strong arms and the infinite wisdom of their young prince.

About GLORYHAMMER

GLORYHAMMER were founded by Alestorm frontman Christopher Bowes in 2009, who spent the next years gathering an international line-up that suited his idea to create a band based conceptually on the fantasy genre and musically fitting generally into the power metal mold. Both aims were achieved stunningly and their debut album, Tales from the Kingdom of Fife released by Napalm Records in 2013 immediately garnered the band high critical acclaim from critics and fans alike. GLORYHAMMER were able to top this success with their second full-length Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards (2015) and have continued to tour in front of ever growing audiences, performed at all major metal festivals, and have by now been nominated twice by German Metal Hammer as best band in the category “Up & Coming” at the Metal Hammer Awards.

GLORYHAMMER Lineup:

Angus McFife XIII, Crown Prince of Fife – Vocals
Ser Proletius, Grand Master of the Deathknights of Crail – Guitars
The Hootsman, Astral Demigod of Unst – Bass
Zargothrax, Dark Emperor of Dundee – Keyboards
Ralathor, the Mysterious Submarine Commander of Cowdenbeath – Drums

Holy Fawn Debut “Dark Stone” Video As Under-The-Radar Gem, Death Spells, Gets Proper Release via Triple Crown Records

PHOENIX — Holy Fawn, the Phoenix-based band who describe themselves as “four creatures making loud heavy pretty noises, release a video for “Dark Stone” as the band’s buzzed about under-the-radar album, Death Spells, gets a proper release via Triple Crown Records (home to Caspian and Covet).

“This record came out of nowhere and absolutely knocked me on my ass. I knew nothing of it, had zero idea what to expect and literally had goosebumps for a majority of my first listen.”
Riley Breckenridge (Thrice)

 

Death Spells initially received a DIY, regional release in 2018, with the band’s friend putting out the 10-song album via his label, Whelmed Records. Word about the young band began to grow out of the Southwest with fans and friends sharing the songs and “Drag Me Into The Woods” video via social media, eventually tipping off a handful of in-the-know writers and musicians.

Stereogum proclaimed it as one of the “Top 50 Records of 2018,” New Noisedubbed it a “sonic adventure,” and Heavy Blog Is Heavy/Arctic Drones’ writer David Zeidler saying, “a little-known indie band from Arizona being touted as the next big thing by respected musicians isn’t something I’m likely to gloss over lightly… I was sufficiently impressed, but it wasn’t until the band released the first single from Death Spells, ‘Arrows’… that I fully realized how exciting and potentially important this band could be.” Thrice’s Riley Breckenridge said he “literally had goosebumps for a majority of my first listen” and Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe offered, “listening from top-to-bottom will take you on a trance-inducing journey.”

 


“The album is beautiful, heavy, & hypnotizing- listening from top to bottom will take you on a trance-inducing journey”
– Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God)

Triple Crown Records re-released the album digitally with the vinyl available via Holy Roar.

Holy Fawn kicks off a western U.S. tour this evening
at Club Congress in Tucson. Dates are:

March 28 Tucson, AZ Club Congress
March 29 Tempe, AZ Yucca Tap Room
March 30 San Diego, CA Space
March 31 Los Angeles, CA The Echo
April 3 San Jose, CA Ritz
April 4 Oakland, CA Elbo Room
April 5 Eugene, OR HiFi Music Hall
April 6 Portland, OR High Water
April 7 Seattle, WA Vera Project
April 9 Salt Lake City, UT Diabolical Records
April 10 Las Vegas, NV Shawteau

All-Star Metal Band IMONOLITH Reveals First Official New Single “Hollow”

Imonolith – the new metal powerhouse featuring vocalist Jon Howard (Threat Signal, Arkaea), drummer Ryan ‘RVP’ Van Poederooyen (Devin Townsend Project), guitarist Brian Waddell (Devin Townsend Project), bassist Byron Stroud (Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory), and second guitarist Kai Huppunen (Methods of Mayhem, Noise Therapy) – is making an unforgettable entrance with a brand new official single, “Hollow”, available to stream/download for the first time today.

Experience the highly-anticipated new track via a brand new video:

“Hollow” serves as the perfect introduction to Imonolith, a band whose mission is simple: to write the heaviest riffs, the biggest hooks and most monstrous grooves. Given the impressive pedigree of each player, they do exactly this and more.

Stream or Purchase “Hollow” Here

Recorded and produced by Brian Howes and Jay Van Poederooyen (Nickelback, Chris Cornell, Airbourne, Hinder, Daughtry) at Van Howes Studios in Los Angeles, California, “Hollow” is immediately setting the bar high – and the best is yet to come.

Drummer Ryan ‘RVP’ Van Poederooyen comments: “‘Hollow’ is a song about the personal battles we all can face internally. Social pressures and self expectation can drive you to a point of feeling hollow inside if you don’t meet specific standards in your mind. The song itself actually has a positive message built into it. It’s not about feeling hollow, it’s more about preventing that hollow feeling that any one of us can develop through negative thinking and limited beliefs.”

Fans can expect many surprises as they unveil more music. RVPcontinues: “As for ‘Hollow’, musically it represents the catchier side of Imonolith’s music. We have varying influences spread throughout the band and we don’t like to play just one style of music. We have a more metal crushing side, a catchier radio side and then music that fits in-between our heavy and catchier vibes. We always aim to make Imonolith’s overall sound diverse and interesting. Most of all, we’re always focused on trying to write a great song, no matter if it’s heavy or catchy.”

Imonolith was officially formed in February 2018 by drummer Ryan ‘RVP’ Van Poederooyen and guitarist Brian Waddell, although the pair started writing their own brand of heavy music in 2015 whilst playing together in the Devin Townsend Project. RVP and Waddell then went on to recruit vocalist Jon Howard, bassist Byron Stroud, and second guitarist Kai Huppunen, completing a fearsome line-up. The Canadian quintet have since written a mass of highly diverse material, which appeals to everyone from the metalhead to the radio rock fan, and everyone in between.

Since teasing demos and video clips online, Imonolith have amassed a dedicated legion of supporters worldwide, and with the release of the new single, their following is set to expand by the thousands. With their first run of shows throughout Canada announced and big international plans in the pipeline, 2019 is set to be a huge year for Imonolith.

February 23 – The Red Room, Vancouver, BC – Tickets
March 1 – Dickens, Calgary, AB – Tickets
March 2 – Starlite Temple, Edmonton, AB – Tickets

Dead Label has made a widespread impact in the North American metal underground and European metal mainstream since their formation in 2008 – performing on huge festivals like Bloodstock UK, Download, Made of Metal and Japan’s Rocktoberfest, and touring with massive bands like Machine HeadGojiraDevilDriver and Fear Factory.

Today, Dead Label is at it again – releasing a cinematic new music video for their heavy-hitting, groove-laden latest single, “False Messiah”. The track serves as a precursor to their upcoming third album, hitting retailers this summer. Experience “False Messiah” here:

The “False Messiah” video was created by Grupa13 of Poland.

In a group statement, Dead Label offers, “We have been huge fans of Grupa13 for a long time. Their work is incredible. When we sent them the track, they came back with this idea and it was perfect for the lyrics and theme of the song. When we arrived in Wroclaw to film the video, we were met with the upmost professionalism and respect.”

The track “False Messiah” was recorded by Michael Richards at Trackmix Studios, mixed by Chris Rakestraw, and mastered by Dan Bacigalupi. The band adds about the track, “We feel this track showcases other elements of our sound, and is a little taste of what to expect from the album. However, this is just the beginning!”

Introducing New Guitarist Mick Hynes

Additionally, the “False Messiah” video serves as an introduction to the band’s newest member, guitarist Mick Hynes. After years of performing as a three-piece, Dead Label decided to add a second guitar player into the mix. “We toured a lot as a three-piece, so this is a huge shift for Dead Label, but ultimately one that allows us more depth and a bigger, heavier, louder sound. Mick is the perfect fit for us – his talent, ambition, drive and enthusiasm is everything we need for Dead Label.”

Dead Label has a busy touring schedule planned for 2019, including an appearance at MetalDays festival in Slovenia this summer, and more festivals to be announced. Stay tuned for more coming from Dead Label soon!

“Dead Label are somewhat of a rarity these days in metal – a band that has the ability and potential to have quite a wide appeal, while still staying true to themselves and what metal is all about.” – Wonderbox Metal

Dan O’ Grady: Bass/Vocals
Danny Hall: Guitar
Mick Hynes: Guitar

In celebration of the tour, the band have released their second recorded song, “Sweet Beef”, along with a brand new, zany music video for the track. The music video features maniacal marionettes in the image of the band members themselves!

Watch the “Sweet Beef” video now via premier comedy site
The Laugh Button

This video is so psychedelic, it will leave you with the munchies! Deranged vocalist Ronald Osbourne says: “Mac Sabbath ‘meats’ marionettes! There will be blood!

The “Sweet Beef” video concept was created by Mac Sabbath, Michael Serwich and Matt Scott, with maroniettes managed by Matt Scott and Rasputin’s Marionettes and editing and effects by Joe Seafus.

The most impressive-and terrifying-thing about Mac Sabbath is that they’re actually really good. Ronald channels his inner Ozzy onstage, from the manic jumping to the frantic hand waving…” – Bryan Rolli, Paste Magazine

“… one of the most interesting bands to come around in a long, long time. They have Dead Kennedys’ outrageous sense of humor mixed with total irreverence and ornate style on top of a solid, engaging performance (even if the crowd is reluctant to respond). So while this whole thing was probably thought up after eating too many pot brownies, it is one of the most brilliant ideas in a long time.”­ – Troy Farah, Phoenix New Times

 

About Mac Sabbath

Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a Mac Sabbath show. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun – Mac Sabbath puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show – complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises… basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams. Named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To” + Named as LA’s “Best Tribute Band” by LA Weekly.
 

“This is not a drill. Be it exchanging Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” for a “Pair-a-buns” or “Iron Man” for a “Frying Pan,” these food-focused musical dweebs are cooking up something hot ‘n’ ready just for you.” – Alicia Lutes, MTV.com

“Even if the songs are dripping with onions and extra cheese, Mac Sabbath put on one righteous stage show, complete with smoke machines, gritty power chords, and endless head-banging.” – Chris Coplan, ConsequenceofSound.net

New EP, Thread of Life, out Today

New Jersey-based progressive metal quartet Etherius are thrilled to release their remarkable new instrumental progressive metal EP, entitled Thread of Life, today. The impressive new five track offering is available to order now via AmazoniTunes, and Google Play. You can also stream it now via Spotify.

Etherius - Thread of Life - Album ArtIn celebration of today’s release, Etherius have revealed a brand new music video for their barnburner track, “March and Defy”, filmed/directed/edited by Michael J Adams of Blackline Studios and recorded at High Tor State Park, NY.

Guitarist Jay Tarantino says about the track and video: “‘March and Defy’ was the last track that was finished for this EP. When I brought the song to the guys we agreed that it felt incomplete. We worked out a new section for after the intro and made some changes to the arrangement and it really came together. It features some of my most challenging lead work and I love the way the main hook came out.”

The new video for “March and Defy” introduces new guitarist Jon Perkins, stepping in for former guitarist John Kiernan. Perkins originally hails from São Paulo, Brazil, and brings a strong a jazz guitar and classical composition background into the fold, accelerated by his studies at both UMiami’s Frost School of Music and Columbia University. He came in contact with the members of Etherius after performing with drummer Zaki Ali in guitarist Gus Sinaro’s backing band.

Perkins says, “It’s been exciting getting to know the members of Etherius and getting a sense of how they interpret musical ideas in a performance setting. I’ve come to see a strong sense of musical discipline and a shared sense of focus, determination and all around professionalism in everyone. I am greatly looking forward for the album release and what lies ahead for Etherius.”

Jay Tarantino adds, “We’re excited to have Jon come into the band. We’ve had the chance to get to know him after he filled in on guitar for us a few months ago for a gig at the last minute. I was impressed with how quickly he picked up the material, because it is not easy music to play. His jazz background makes him a versatile player and his attitude and work ethic fit right in with the chemistry that’s been created between Zaki, Chris, and myself.”

While online, check out the latest Etherius behind the scenes videos detailing the making of Thread of Life, exclusively hosted by Gear Gods. Catch parts one and two here, detailing drums and bass, respectively, and stay tuned for part three detailing the recording of guitars: Part One, Drums  |  Part Two, Bass

“The Inevitable End” Music Video

Drum playthrough for “The Inevitable End”

Guitar playthrough for “Soothsayer”

Guitar playthrough for “Thread of Life”

Bass playthrough for “Thread of Life”

 

Etherius was formed by guitarist Jay Tarantino in 2017. After gaining experience as a touring rhythm guitarist for guitar virtuoso Angel Vivaldi, Tarantino decided to branch out on his own with the goal of making music unlike the djent/electronic stylings of the current instrumental guitar scene. The result is Etherius – a fresh new take on progressive metal/neoclassical shred incorporating classic thrash elements. Etherius features lead guitarist Jay Tarantino, drummer Zaki Ali, bassist Chris Targia and second guitarist Jon Perkins.

The concept of Thread of Life and the album’s artwork were inspired by ancient Greek mythology, specifically TheMoirai (moy-ray), or “three fates”. Thread of Life was produced and engineered by Jay Tarantino and Zaki Ali with Angel Vivaldi acting as co-producer, was recorded at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey (owned by Dillinger Escape Planguitarist Kevin Antreassin), and was mixed/mastered by Mutiny Within vocalist Chris Clancy at Audioworks Productions. Additional tracking was completed with Angel Vivaldi at his home studio.

With one listen to Thread of Life it’s clear that combined, the four extremely talented musicians of Etherius produce a clean, awe-inspiring sound merging powerful progressive elements that will appeal to not only the most discerning and critical metal fans, but to the heavy music-loving masses as well.

Etherius are currently endorsed by Kiesel Guitars.

This summer, hip-hop/EDM/hardcore metal crossover project Concrete Dream has released three singles: “Catch 22“, “One Thing“, and now, the new single “Relationshit“. Today, fans can witness the brand new music video for “Relationshit“, directed by Don Capria, via New Noise Magazine. Watch here.

Singer Jeremiah Mayhem says, “This song is about hiding your true self from the people you love. With your significant other, you live the lie because you’re either comfortable or may not want confrontation; which comes with being honest. And as we continue to live the lie, it turns into a ‘relationshit’, not a relationship.”

“All of our new songs are about struggle,” adds Jeremiah. “It is about a cycle in most people’s lives – we love something, we lose it, mess it up, or it leaves us, then we feel pain, and then we find a way to escape the pain. Then we repeat, again and again. This negative to positive cycle drives us forward, and we’re inspired by both the good and the bad.”

About Concrete Dream

New Jersey-based Concrete Dream exudes a distinct, raw, yet accessible power and clean execution previously unmatched by any artist in the scene. Do not mistake this band for another local – the self-described “trap-metal” quartet are on another level, crafting potent, consistent anthems that will have listeners singing along while still hitting hard as nails.

After tapping the keen production talents of This or the Apocalypse-vocalist-turned-producer Ricky Armellino for each new single, the infectious sound reached the ears of New York hardcore legend Lord Ezec (Crown of Thornz, Skarhead, Danny Diablo), who quickly signed them to his new label, E-Train Records.

“I met Jeremiah Mayhem and immediately liked him,” says Lord Ezec, who signed the band earlier this year to E-Train Records. “He was genuine. He was real. He was like a younger version of me. Once he played me the music I was blown away. I met the band and saw a real tight unit. They care about their music and the message. Their live show says it all and that’s why I knew I needed to sign them. I want to help advance them to get their voices heard.”

Make no mistake, Concrete Dream is a band to watch in 2018.

Don’t miss Concrete Dream performing on August 11th at “Sound Purge“, taking place at Lot 13 in Bayonne, NJ (169 E Ave E). Doors open at 8:00 PM. See here for more details. The band will also perform at the “Why Is Music Important?” gallery in support of the You Rock Foundation for mental health awareness on August 31st. The event will take place at The Cyclorama at Soundwars Studios in Hoboken, NJ from 6:00 – 10:00 PM. Visit this page for more information on the event.
