JINJER Announces U.S. Tour Supporting DevilDriver

Through their unique and heavy sound, over the top live performances and the mesmerizing voice of singer supreme Tatiana, Ukraine based band JINJER have quickly become one the most talked about names in the heavy metal landscape today.  Fresh off a short North American tour, that saw multiple sold-out shows and the band’s first ever appearance at the Heavy MTL Festival, JINJER are set to return to the U.S. as direct support to DevilDriver.  The tour kicks off October 23rd in Phoenix, AZ on October 23rd and runs through November 18th in San Diego, CA.  A complete list of dates can be found below.
The reviews of JINJER‘s first live shows in North America have been nothing short of spectacular:
These guys blew me away, fierce, fast and hungry. For me they stole the show, can’t wait to see them again.
-Metal Wani-
If there is only one thing to be said, it is “Holy Fuck!”
-Yell Magazine-
They sifted through their six-songs set striking a great balance between musical complexity and brutal neck-breaking groove
-Sonic Perspectives-
Their sound is unique and implements a ton of groove which bodes well with Tatiana’s complex vocal range which goes from incredibly low harsh tones to a beautiful and melodic singing
-Metal Nexus-
Says the band of the upcoming tour:
“It is hard to express how delighted we are to join the upcoming tour with mighty DevilDriver this Fall. Folks, be prepared for a devastating force on stage this October-November. JINJER will come back to the US with new songs, and our American fans will check them live first. It is gonna be hell of a tour!”

MOB RULES Release Lyric Video For New Single “Sinister Light”

New Album “Beast Reborn” Out August 24th via SPV/Steamhammer

Northern German Metallers MOB RULES have released a new single and lyric video for the song “Sinister Light” which is taken from their forthcoming studio album “Beast Reborn”.
Singer Klaus Dirks describes the song as: “Very spontaneously written, the song is based on a riff, which mainly puts the rhythm into the foreground. It quickly turns into a gripping goosebumps chorus with catchy and equally varied arrangements with a dense atmosphere. It also contains slightly folky influences with a triolic feeling. The content is based on “The Dog of Baskerville”, a Sherlock Holmes novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Supposedly an ancient curse presses on the Family Baskerville: A demon hellhound ambushes the family members in the moor next to the Baskervilles estate. The song takes its title from the mysteriously glowing moor, that enhances the sinister and dark ambience of the story. The Hunter turns into the hunted, as falling victim to his own curse.”
You can watch the video below:
MOB RULES – “Sinister Light”
(Official Lyric Video)
“Beast Reborn” will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on August 24th as limited Boxset (incl. CD, 2LP, towel, hand signed photocard, 2 track bonus CD, patch, sticker etc….), CD DigiPak, 2LP Gatefold (incl. 1 bonus track), download and stream. Pre-order the album at:

Out Now! PSYCHOSTICK Surprise Fans With Whole New Album “DO”

North American Tour Dates w/ Mushroomhead & Urizen

They’re back!!! The kings of comedy rock PSYCHOSTICK have a new album out now called “DO” and it only took four years to follow their extremely fan loved “IV: Revenge of The Vengeance”. And it wasn’t because they were lazy… NO! But because these geniuses of blending comedy, metal, heavy rock and the occasional spoof cover have been super busy releasing viral videos and touring the world. 

“DO” may have passed fans by real quickly as the band just recently surprised the globe by releasing it during their live webcast on Twitch on July 24th. The band was originally going to reveal just album details but decided what’s better than sharing the whole darn thing with them.

The band comments:

“Whelp, here it is! “Do.” This whole “surprise, nerd! New album!” experiment was extremely fun, and we’re beyond appreciative of your patience and understanding. We agree with you – four years is way too long. We hope to fix that despite what Murph says!

“Do” is our first 100% independent, label-free release since 2003! Our production process is still completely internal, but this time all profits go straight to Psychostick. This is extremely huge for us and we can’t thank you enough.

2018 marked the fifteenth anniversary of our first album, and we’re beyond excited that we’re still kickin’, making globs upon globs of comedy metal. We aim to do this until they kick us out of the old folks’ home or off of Mars. That’s right. We’re goin’ to Mars, damnit.”

“DO” continues PSYCHOSTICK‘s reign as one of the funniest band’s to listen and laugh to. The album features over an hour of variety of laugh track headbanging tunes including singles “Adulting”, because who really wants to grow up and “From The Heart”, a ballad for those you really dislike.

Watch their videos for yourself!

“You Can (Maybe) Do It!” –
“Adulting” –
“From The Heart” –

“DO” is available on CD and download exclusively at 

And will be available as of July 27th on iTunes and Spotify.

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, and a style of music they’ve coined as ‘humorcore’. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Now residing in Chicago, IL, the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory Psychostick have released five full-length albums–‘We Couldn’t Think of a Title’ (2006), ‘Sandwich’ (2009), ‘Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D’ (2011) and ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ (2014), ‘DO’ (2018) —and two EPs—their holiday album, ‘The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride’ (2007), and ‘The Digital Appetizer’. With their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic), Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!

GWAR and Hatebreed To Co-Headline The “Gore, Core, Metal and More” Tour This Fall

It’s that time of year again, the time when GWAR comes to destroy your town and eviscerate your eardrums.  However, this is no ordinary tour, this year they do it together with Hatebreed.  The “Gore, Core, Metal and More” tour will be co-headlined by your Lords and Masters GWAR, and the mighty Hatebreed.  Support will come from Miss May I, Ringworm and American Sharks These shows begin October 17th in Buffalo, NY and run through October 28th in Peoria, IA.
On October 29thGWAR will then kick off a headline run, that sees them stopping in New York City on Halloween and continuing their aural (not oral) devastation of the nation through November 19th
“This is the tour you can’t afford to miss. We are bringing you the heaviest in hardcore and the most brutal of gore! We are thrilled to be slaying the nation alongside our brothers in HATEBREED!, belches guitarist Pustulus Maximus
“Humans, come, witness the eviscerating, ear splitting majesty and power of GWAR and Hatebreed! Yes, demonstrate your ceaseless dedication to heavy fucking metal in the Pit of Death. There is a very good chance you won’t survive!,” adds vocalist The Berserker Blothar.
“Autumn is a lovely time of year to team up w/ GWAR and crush every city in our path. There will be mosh pits, blood, carnage & chaos,” says Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 20.
GWARare out on tour supporting their latest masterpiece “The Blood of Gods” which was released last fall on Metal Blade Records. “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Born of adversity, “The Blood of Gods” is a sonic scar…a question asked and answered…Death cannot kill GWAR. Nothing can. GWAR LIVES MOTHERFUCKERS!
In the 20 years since their definitive debut, Hatebreed have rightfully earned their status as hardcore legends. They’ve remained road warriors, touring constantly and reducing venues to pile of rubble and ash while sharing stages with everyone from Slipknot to Slayer and serving as one of the top-tier headliners on multiple festivals, from Ozzfest to Mayhem to Warped Tour.  Hatebreed‘s latest critically acclaimed album “The Concrete Confessional” is out now via Nuclear Blast.

MUSHROOMHEAD came together when drummer Skinny formed the band as a side project. The band wore masks to go unrecognized, but after only a few shows they developed a rabid and loyal fan base in Cleveland. They released their 1995 self-titled debut album independently and it went on to became an underground hit, which was history in the making because the band really had no proper distribution at the time. Superbuick followed in 1996 and M3 in 1999, all released via an underground street effort. After the band felt its image and hyper-melodic, heavy style of music was being diluted by other bands jumping into this space, the band started to change their look to reflect nothing out there.
Universal Records saw the release of XX (a combination of the past independent releases) in 2001. In 2003, XIII was released, spawning the single “Sun Doesn’t Rise” which was featured on MTV: Headbangers Ball and the Freddy Vs. Jason soundtrack. The album also featured the hidden track “Crazy”, a song originally recorded by Seal. The album debuted at #40 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and sold 400,000 copies worldwide. In December 2005, the band signed with the pioneering rock label, Megaforce Records (Metallica, Anthrax, Ministry) and released Savior Sorrow in 2006 and Beautiful Stories For Ugly Children in 2010. In 2014, the band released The Righteous & The Butterfly, which debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart and #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Chart.
Expect more clips and information to be released leading up to the release of VOLUME III!

Help With Funeral Costs For Michael James Reeves

Michael James Reeves passed away from brain cancer on 7/2/18. Mike is survived by his only son Dylan Reeves, Mother Sharon Reeves, two brothers Richard Reeves and John Reeves, and his girlfriend Denise. Mike was passionate about Rock and Roll music, he loved his guitars, his long blonde hair, his black leather vest and his white tank tops. Mike cared deeply for all of his friends and he had a special place in his heart for his best friend Denny. Mike loved his band mates in C4OC and was always grateful to be apart of such a special thing (C4OC) and he was honored to be around an awesome group of men. Mike had a tough road over the last 10 months and we are thankful to God that he is now pain free.

Now the hard part. Rick and John have taken the lead on Mikes funeral service and have come up against some financial obstacles. Mike didn’t have any plans in place (Who does) for any funeral services. We were un aware of the costs associated with burying a loved one. Please consider partnering with us on Mikes burial costs.

Thanks to everyone who has influenced Mikes life both good or bad…LOL.

Funeral details are in process, Tentatively Monday July 9th at 10 am in Whittier CA

HALCYON WAY Reveal Lyric Video For New Track ‘Slaves To Silicon’

American metallers HALCYON WAY have teamed up with Decibel Magazine to premiere a lyric video for a new track “Slaves To Silicon”. The song comes from the band’s upcoming album“Bloody But Unbowed”, set to be released on August 3rd via Agonia Records. Listen to “Slaves To Silicon” HERE.
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, “Bloody But Unbowed” 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 (WhitechapelTriviumBad WolvesThreat Signal) and is replete with artwork from Travis Smith (OpethOverkillDeathIced Earth).

The album boasts a very special appearance of “The Nailhead Choir”, with many guest names to be revealed soon.
The band commented: “We are beyond excited to finally unleash this beast upon everyone. This is by far our heaviest album, but it also has the biggest choruses, and it’s just the right next step in our evolution as a band. It was a difficult album to write and put over the finish line, and we cannot wait to have everyone hear it. From the songs to the production to the art, we think all our fans are going to absolutely love it, and when people that haven’t heard Halcyon Way before get a taste, they’re going to be like ‘where has this band been my whole life?'”.
