Today, February 17th, 2017, Dutch heavy metal crew, Downcast Collision, are releasing their new album Rise Up via Graviton Music Services and to celebrate the album’s launch, we’ve partnered with the band to premiere the music video for their shredding single, “Overthrown”.

With members hailing from both The Hague and Rotterdam in The Netherlands, the quartet formed with a simple objective in mind: make dark, heavy and modern-sounding metal with tight riffs and melody. Mission accomplished!

The band hit us up and left us with this simple yet poignant comment, “Downcast Collision will sweep through the world with a plague of heaviness.”


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
