Tony Campos of STATIC-X says, “We are so honored and grateful to all the fans who came out and supported the Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary tour! The response was absolutely overwhelming! There were a number of places that were left out of the first leg, so we are very excited for the opportunity to circle back and celebrate all the good times we had with Wayne. We look forward to giving those fans an opportunity to pay their respects with us and to experience Wisconsin Death Trip once again before 2019 comes to a close. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all!”
Masked STATIC-X vocalist Xero adds, “The first leg of the tour was absolutely insane! Almost every single show was SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone for being so supportive! We are very excited to be able to get out there and hit a bunch of cities that didn’t appear on the first leg.”
Dez Fafara of DEVILDRIVER adds, “The last tour was so successful, with most dates sold out or close to it, that of course we are honored to be part of this package again.”
Edsel Dope of Dope offers, “The first leg of the tour came and went so fast. Every night was a massive celebration of Wayne and of 20 years of Wisconsin Death Trip, and Felons and Revolutionaries. Hearing Dez singing “Loco” nightly has just been crazy! It’s like a fucking time warp and it’s just been so sick! The package is amazing! The fans are loving it… I’m so glad that we get to do it all again before 2019 comes to a close.”
Wednesday 13 says, “We are excited to announce that we are part of the second leg of the Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary tour with STATIC-X and DEVILDRIVER. This tour has been amazing so far, and we can’t wait to do it again. Look for an all new album and show from us the second time around.”

Progressive Metal Prodigies Sifting Announce New Album The Infinite Loop Out September 27

Album produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence, Poison the Well) and mixed by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, The Contortionist) 

Watch the new music video, ‘A Critical Affair’ via YouTube, stream the single at Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer

Pre-orders for The Infinite Loop now available at this location

Progressive metal prodigies SIFTING will release their upcoming third full-length album entitled The Infinite Loop on September 27, 2019 via Eclipse Records. The album was produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence, Poison the Well), mixed & mastered by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, The Contortionist), and the album’s artwork was designed by Jimmy León. See below for the full track listing.

The Infinite Loop is a masterpiece of progressive metal featuring 70 minutes of mind-blowing jedi-like musicianship, perhaps only rivaled by the likes of Rush, Megadeth, Dream Theater or Metallica. That’s a big statement to make, but if one takes the time to listen, the songs on this album back it up. The first single, “A Critical Affair,” simply shreds the listener’s ears with fast-paced, finger-twisting riffs and unbelievable drumbeats that one would think could only be performed by a human-octopus hybrid. The second single, entitled “Stop Calling Me Liberty,” could very well be considered a modern-day masterpiece with its pummeling verse-chorus-verse structure, insanely epic guitar solos and acoustic reprieve in the middle of the song. More importantly, however, are the lyrics in which the Statue of Liberty comes to life and tells the world how the concept of liberty has been adulterated towards the agenda of the first-world elites. The third single, “Enough,” takes things down a notch and tackles the scandal of college admissions and parents providing material necessities to their children instead of what they really need – quality company, love, affection and acceptance. Other highlights on the album include “Ghost of A Lie,” which features Derek Sherinian (Sons of Apollo, Dream Theater) on keyboards, and of course the title track, “The Infinite Loop.” One could go on and on about each song on this album, as there’s just so damn much to say about it, but in the end… you just NEED to listen to it for yourself. Open your mind to something new and discover the magic of SIFTING.

The band have also revealed the first music video from the album for the single A Critical Affair, which was directed by Alejandro Fumero Gil.Watch it right now at this location.

“A Critical Affair is a song about the world we live in today, a place that beats you down, scares you and tests your limits,” says frontman Eduardo Gil. “The only path to enlightenment is to stand up for yourself and raise your voice against the injustice. The voice of protest is the weapon of the people! Regardless of your origins, or what you have done, make your voice heard and take action to preserve the future for our children!”

Pre-order the album on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, or CD and stream the singles via Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and more here.

Alternative Metal band XIX announce their debut single “Give Me Pain”

Alternative Metal band, XIX, proudly announced the release of their debut face-melting single “Give Me Pain” on the 26th of April.

The band is profoundly excited to showcase their debut single from the upcoming debut album as a sample of what is yet to come.

Through this release, XIX hope to channel their energy and set off their beginning in the alt-metal scene.

About the band:
XIX is a five-member metal act hailing from London. The whole concept of creating a heavy metal band was conceived in 2019 by Vocalist Hercules Zotos, Guitarists Lj Strat, and C Dyne, Bass Guitarists & Vocalist Takis Foitos and Drummer Tony Michaels. With influences from Hard Rock and Alternative Metal music acts, the band sets forth to express their artistic drive via music.

Their name comes from a Stephen King Novel:
As Stephen King wrote in his book The Dark Tower, “This whole deal has gone nineteen.”

As we move forward, we plan to create Alternative Metal music that stretches all age groups and genres and help the world find its pillar. We want to discover ourselves through the music we make, and we hope that our fans do the same. ”

Some of our influences include Avenged Sevenfold, Guns N’ Roses, Disturbed, Three Days Grace and many others from within our music genre. You can find us on Facebook, Spotify and Twitter.

J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research, the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life, and other cancer research projects.  Over the past four years, the Dio Cancer Fund has committed funds to support the research of Dr. David Wong and his team at the UCLA School of Dentistry in developing a simple, non-invasive saliva test for the early detection of cancer. This technology has been in research and testing phases over the last three years and recently received regulatory approval.  This cutting-edge research, which is in keeping with the organization’s mission of cancer prevention, research and education,    will enable thousands of people to get screened for previously hard to detect cancers. Early detection saves lives!

HALCYON WAY Premiere Music Video For ‘The Church Of Me’

Shortly before their North American tour with Metal Church, which kicks off on April 23rd, Atlanta-based metallers HALCYON WAY present a music video for the track “The Church Of Me”. The song is taken from their new album “Bloody But Unbowed”, out now on Agonia Records. The video is available via Decibel Magazine at:
The band’s guitarist Jon Bodan had this to sat about the video: “We are really hyped to get this video out there into the interwebs – when I came up with the idea for this song a couple of years ago, I immediately had a vision for a video with the sketchy tent revival preacher, and I really think our director Chance nailed what we were going for. This was the 2nd song I worked on for ‘Bloody But Unbowed’ and it’s really a cool feeling that we were able to work together to make that vision real. We hope everyone enjoys!”.

HALCYON WAY’s sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal. It can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, progressive and above all, focused on strong songcraft. From Megadeth to Dream Theater, to Testament and Chimaira – HALCYON WAY draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands. With a magnitude of catchy hooks, vocal harmonies a la King’s X or Stryper, and heavy, technical, yet ultimately accessible instrumentation, the band’s new album “Bloody But Unbowed” (out now on Agonia Records) is sure to please fans of many forms of metal. Be that modern, power, thrash and progressive metal – but also hard rock fans. Crammed full of huge anthemic choruses, shredding solos, and brutal riffs, this release checks off all the boxes.
“Bloody But Unbowed” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, Trivium, Bad Wolves, Threat Signal) and is replete with artwork from Travis Smith (Opeth, Overkill, Death, Iced Earth). The album boasts a very special appearance of “The Nailhead Choir”, with notable guest musicians of Queensryche and Iced Earth fame.
HALCYON WAY is the ultimate example of blue-collar work ethic, self-reliant bootstrapping, and hard work & perseverance in spite of nearly insurmountable odds. The band has released four studio albums worldwide (through Nightmare Records/Sony RED, Massacre Records and most recently Agonia Records) and has performed on 4 continents (and about 20 countries and counting), touring with the likes of Saxon, Sabaton, Queensryche, Fates Warning, Fozzy, Skid Row, U.D.O., Delain, Angra and Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime.

Indestructible Noise Command (I.N.C.) have released a new animation video for ‘Identifier

the track is taken from their new album Terrible Things, which was released on March 8th, 2019. It’s Indestructible Noise Command’s first album in five years as it is the follow-up to 2014’s Black Hearse Serenade.Watch Indestructible Noise Command DESTROY the ludicrous Bird Box plotline:

Erik Barath explains: “The song ‘Identifier’ is actually a bit political. Based on the insanity and total meltdown by a large segment of the population after the 2016 elections and I was thinking about making a video based on that but then thought, people are really sick of politics. This was around the same time I saw the movie Bird Box with Sandra Bullock on Netflix and I thought, what a stupid fucking movie. I can’t even take a piss in the middle of the night without bumping into 5 or 6 things along the way in the dark. So I figured lets make a video based on the movie, but the thing that no one can look is Dennis, our vocalist. It’s fun and playful like the song so it all worked out in the end.

As for the making of the video, I hooked up with a 22 year old Ukrainian from Kiev named Vlad Naboka. He really wanted to make the video and hand drew the art himself, did it all by himself. Vlad doesn’t have a studio he works for, just a cool dude who has a passion. Did a pretty great job I think!

The Connecticut heavy metal outfit unleashed another aggressive album, which would mark their third full-length effort since their return in 2010. The band began working on their overall fifth studio album back in January 2018 and entered the studio in September. The group worked with Nicky Bellmore at Dexter Labs studios as the record promises to deliver the group’s thrash roots from albums such as 1987’s Razorback as well as adding a technical edge.
