Milwaukee outfit Seven Cities Dead released their latest single, “Take This To My Grave,” featuring As I Lay Dying’s Josh Gilbert. SCD’s new single embodies the best attributes of classic and modern metalcore, pulling influences from Trivium, Wage War, and Motionless in White.

The story of “Take This To My Grave” in the words of the band:

“All the way back in 2021, we had this new demo for a song that was a little different than anything we had written before. It felt heavier than anything else we made but also somehow the most accessible. It had blast beats and a nasty breakdown, but it was also still structured like a radio single with a really catchy chorus and epic singing outro. We were already excited about it, but this was also the time when Featured X first came out.”

The story continues… “This was a website where artists, including some big names, signed up to make themselves available for people to request as features. At first, when we saw Josh Gilbert there, we thought he was way out of our league. As I Lay Dying was one of our favorite bands as teenagers and even to this day they’re a huge influence on our style. But we fantasized about what it would be like to have him on our song, and it genuinely felt like he would be a really good fit. So we reached out.

“We weren’t sure if we’d get a response, or if he even checked his messages on the site. And if he did, what are the odds he would agree to feature on a song by a no name band like us? But… he did! A few days later we got an email that he really liked the song and he would do it. What’s more, we learned that he’s also a professional producer working with Joseph McQueen at Sparrow Studios in Los Angeles. This is where Shaped By Fire was recorded.

“They’ve also produced records by bands like Bad Wolves, Bullet For My Valentine, Jason Derulo. We knew it would be the best experience and also the best song possible if we could go down and record it with him in person. So that’s exactly what we did. It was an amazing experience! We had planned to release this song in 2022 with an epic animated video which we had a whole script drawn up for – but things fell through with the animator after several months and delayed deadlines. And then things fell through with the next animator. And the next one. Two and a half years later, we decided this song just HAS to see the light of day, one way or another. We still have dreams of bringing the full story to fruition, but for now – we just want to release the song!”

The Tribe has spoken! Arise from the grave and drink from the lifeblood! Legendary metal brothers Max & Iggor Cavalera have gone back to their roots to bring you a taste of home from the bloodline buried deep within the sacrificial soil. Dubbed the world’s “bloodiest” coffee, this coffee lives up to its reputation as the heaviest of the Brazilian Legenders, with its deep, rich notes that will thump and chug your heart right out of your chest!

This bone-breaking brew was handpicked by the Cavalera Tribe themselves to inspire generations of headbangers to come. So, take your place on the totem around the tribal fires, and drink from the sacrificial lifeblood today, and experience an intense, immersive coffee experience like no other!

Concept Cafes tell us:

“Collaborating with the Tribe, we wanted to accomplish two things with ‘Blood Brothers’…: 1) further push the initiative that Metal has a place in the coffee world beyond the burnt leftovers from the factory floor & 2) share the often overlooked, yet some of the best coffee in the world, that comes out of Brazil. The collective challenge was how do you package 40 years of legacy from such an influential & integral part of Metal history into a bag/can of coffee…? Furthermore, how do you represent Brazilian culture, and most importantly, how do you humbly present the best offering to metalheads around the world? But Max & Iggor, and the rest of the Cavalera Tribe, actually made it pretty easy for us once we started working with them. When you see the level of passion & devotion they have for the music and touring for the fans, it really is awe-inspiring; so everything kinda just started to come together on this project ‘organically’. Marina (Concept’s head artist) & I had the initial idea that if we could make everything organic enough to pay tribute to Max’s love for camo, we might just pull this off. How’d we do…? LOL”

Max & Iggor’s “Blood Brothers” coffee was a semifinalist in the coffee industry’s prestigious 2023 Sprudgie Awards (the equivalent of the Grammys in the coffee world).

You can pre-order Max & Iggor Cavalera’s Official ‘Blood Brothers’ Coffee Cold Nitro Brew Cans available in espresso, non-dairy latte & flavoured latte versions here.

Brace yourselves for the sonic onslaught from Cassetta, a greater Los Angeles hardcore group that has released their latest sonic juggernaut, “Give Them Nothing.” This blistering single has permeated streaming services, hitting platforms including Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, and all major DSPs.

Drawing from the deepest, most primal recesses of musical intensity, Cassetta masterfully melds influences from past and present hardcore/metal favourites, forging a relentless, bone-crushing wall of sound that will leave listeners breathless. The accompanying live performance video of “Give Them Nothing” is slated for release on the band’s official YouTube channel in the coming weeks.

“Give Them Nothing” stands as a testament to the band’s uncompromising vision, self-produced and mixed by Jeff Dunne, known for his work with heavyweights such as Knocked Loose, Make Them Suffer, Veil Of Maya, and Emmure. Cassetta’s ethos is one of raw power, eschewing frills in favour of unadulterated hardcore energy, with vocalist Conor Eaton’s introspective lyrics guiding listeners through a dark, deeply personal journey.

Comprised of vocalist Conor Eaton (The Keeper), guitarist/songwriter Kevin Fifield (Pressure Cracks/Scars of Tomorrow), Marc Motley (The Arson Choir), Bob Bradley (Fake Figures/Scars of Tomorrow), and Alex Lopez (Suicide Silence), Cassetta is a powerhouse collective poised to dominate the hardcore scene.

In addition to the forthcoming single, Cassetta has also unveiled a limited edition two-song cassette featuring their previous hits, “Swallow the Sun” and “Thin Blue Crime.” This exclusive cassette, accompanied by enamel pins and two distinct shirt designs, is available now via the band’s official Bandcamp store.
