This week we have a doozy of a track for you guys: A song by a unique artist called We Have A Ghost. We Have a Ghost prefers to let his music do the talking for him, concealing his identity and whereabouts. His music contains many different elements such as rock, metal and electronica which makes his music almost impossible to classify. Fans of Mogwai and Nine Inch Nails in particular should take note, but we will really think fans of a variety of genres will love this track.

Queens, NY five-piece ruffians, Sylar, are set to release their pummeling new album, To Whom It May Concern, on May 13th, 2014 via Razor & Tie. The new recording demonstrates a band ripe with potential and songs that, both on disc and live, are purely hyper-mode-inducing. We caught up recently with lead singer Jayden Panesso to chat in brief about his ink.

The French industrial metal act JENX is preparing to release Drift, a revamped and remixed version of their critically acclaimed 2012 record Enuma Elish, from which six tracks were selected and have been totally deconstructed and rebuilt by the band’s keyboardist Lyynk into what I can best describe as a tapestry of widely varied sounds and beats that are reminiscent of NIN meets Depeche Mode meets Ministry.

††† (Crosses) are gearing up for the release of their eagerly anticipated eponymous full-length debut, due out February 11 via Sumerian Records. The 15-track collection features all tracks from the band’s previously released EP† and EP†† alongside five new songs, including “Brilliant” new single “†he Epilogue” which is heating up Modern Rock radio. The band is also now streaming another new track, “Bi†ches Brew,” off the album.

Fountain of Uncertainty is the brand new album from death metal band Viranesir, available here as an exclusive album stream! Viranesir is a new death metal project created by the Yayla mastermind Emir Togrul. Originally created to be the solo project of the fictional main character in the film Drink From The Fountain of Uncertainty, the project is releasing the soundtrack as its debut album Fountain Of Uncertainty. The thirty minute album fuses together a variety of influences from hermetic extreme metal and dark music. There are ambient driven doom lullabies to saturated synthesizers to black metal melodies, all coming together to present a cosmos of inward gazing and a contemporary take on urban madness and isolation.

On their newest offering, Weapon, Skinny Puppy return to their roots releasing a record that is heavy on ’80s electro while still maintaining their classic dark, heavy overtones. Skinny Puppy has a unique way of embedding very serious subject matter over top of some of the best industrial music around; it’s both extremely rhythmic and danceable. This is a group that has continually pushed boundaries with their unconventional, innovative song structures and in the process have become the blueprint for scores of bands that followed.

With a line-up that boasts a combination of both French and American cultures, it’d be fair to expect An Endless Vision to sound like the bastard offspring of both the European and American metal scenes and, as the clinical, juddering riffage of opener “Amiss Desire” spits this album into life, it’s apparent that NightShade have in fact taken elements from both scenes and melded them together into an impressive end product.
