Bassist Amos Williams from the progressive metal band TesseracT took some time out of his busy touring schedule to speak with us about the band’s latest release, One. The UK based progressive metal band is currently touring the United States with Protest The Hero and Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster. Here’s how the conversation went.
Turisas released one of the most thrilling albums of the year with their new battle metal masterpiece ‘Stand Up And Fight’. The new release also brought the band stateside once again, this time pillaging North America alongside Cradle of Filth, Nachtmystium and Daniel Lioneye. Now, the band has completed work on the first video to accompany the album’s title track.
Swedish heavy metal act, Arch Enemy, has posted a free download of the brand new track, “Yesterday Is Dead And Gone”, on the Century Media Records website. The song is the first to be revealed from the highly anticipated album, ‘Khaos Legions’, which is slated to hit stores on June 7th.
We are one week away from The Haunted releasing their massive ‘Unseen’ record upon the masses. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2008’s ‘Versus’ sees the band swing for the fences with a massive, catchy heavy metal record unlike anything else you would expect from the Swedish powerhouse. Now, The Haunted have teamed up with MetalSucks.net to launch an exclusive stream of ‘Unseen’ online. Head over to MetalSucks.net to check out the album and be sure to pre-order your copy before it is released on March 22nd.
Approximately 17 years ago Dark Tranquillity released their debut album Skydancer. To this day the band still has four of their original members, a huge accomplishment for any band. In addition to their loyalty the members have matured as musicians and with them brought We Are The Void. This, their latest effort, truly demonstrates how much they have evolved since their first release.
Experimental deathcore act Arsonists Get All The Girls have whipped up quite the aural beatdown in their latest release, Portals. These eleven tracks find the band borrowing from all shapes and forms of heavy music for a pulsating record that doesn’t let up too often – and that’s a good thing. While I’d never consider deathcore to be my kind of thing, there are some undeniably awesome tracks found throughout this release with just the right amount of balls-out heaviness combined with well-placed programming and smooth synth leads for contrast.
