MASTODON Reveal New Song From Forthcoming Album

MastodonWarner Bros. Records has unveiled a brand new song High Road from their forthcoming album, ONCE MORE ‘ROUND THE SUN, produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice In Chains, Deftones).

Go to: www.mastodonrocks.com to listen now.

Mastodon band members had this to say about the new song:

“I wrote that on a day off while we were on tour in Luxembourg. I was sitting in this rainy city on a Sunday, and nothing was open. I felt like I needed to write something to reflect how I was feeling. I started banging on a guitar. I was thinking Neurosis and The Melvins low-tuned with a little more pop sensibility for the chorus.” - Bill Kelliher 

“You can headbang to that one for days. I love the simplicity of it. Lyrically, it’s an angry number where you want to see someone destroyed. It’s heavy-handed in that sense, but it’s the fantasy I felt at the time.” - Brann Dailor

More information to be revealed soon. Keep an eye on www.mastodonrocks.com

About Nothing:
Nothing was formed in 2011 by Domenic Palermo. Previously Palermo was the brains behind the early 2000′s hardcore/punk act Horror Show. in 2002 Horror Show was put on hold after Palermo was incarcerated for a stabbing that eventually led to a 2 year prison sentence. Upon his return Palermo would take a lengthy hiatus from music. In 2011 Palermo released a demo tape titled “Poshlost” under the moniker NOTHING. After several attempts at constructing a solid lineup for the band Palermo met Brandon Setta. Setta would bring a lush, rich soundscape and a fresh approach to Palermo’s vision for Nothing. Setta and Palermo would handle the writing for the next release, a very rare 12″ EP that was released on Japanese boutique label Big Love Records called Suns And Lovers (A play off of the D.H. Lawernce book). It was limited to 300 copies and the bands share was donated back to the label for a Tsunami Relief Charity. The next release,Downward Years To Come was a 5 song EP and was recorded at the Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn with Kyle “Slick” Johnson. The record was released by Baltimore Label A389 Records in November 2012. Written by Palermo and Setta, the concept behind Downward Years To Comewas a dedication to several different poets who had taken their own lives. Head to Nothing’s bandcamp page here to stream or purchase Downward Years To Come and Suns And Lovers. Setta and Palermo would again head into the studio, this time with Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recordings to write their debut LP, Guilty of Everything and sign with Relapse Records.

Death Toll Rising has posted a new guitar play through for their track ‘Crack Open A Cold One’ from their latest album Infection Legacy.

“We are pleased to be releasing our first of two guitar videos today, something we have never done before.  So crank it, then sit back and Crack Open a Cold One!” comments guitarist Drew Copland.

Death Toll Rising – Crack Open a Cold One (guitar video)

Rising up the ladder of the Canadian metal scene with their latest album ‘Infection Legacy’ unleashed October2013, Death Toll Rising won praise in 2013 from fans, metal publications, and support from Canadian Loud Charts remaining on the Top 20 since November 2013. The band has also been recently nominated for Metal Recording of The Year at the upcoming Edmonton Music Awards taking place on Sunday, April 13th Royal Alberta Museum Theatre.

Metal Recording Of The Year
All Else Fails “AntiMartyr”
Death Toll Rising “Malice Incarnate”
Dieuponaday “Enlighten”
Monarch Sky “Circles”
Villainizer “Twin Tower Two-Step”

Nominees List: http://2014edmontonmusicawards.blogspot.ca/2014/02/and-nominees-are.html

About: Featuring a combination of death and thrash metal, the Edmonton-based band are known to devastate their audiences with their high octane performances that has lead them to share the stage over the years with high profile names such as Kataklysm, Cryptopsy, The Haunted, and Aborted (to name a few).

Originally formed in 2003 in Stony Plain, AB, Canada, Death Toll Rising have been grinding the Western Canadian metal scene steadily, gaining huge momentum over the last 3 years. New addition Tylor Dory on guitars has introduced a technical and progressive element to the band they have not had in the past. Add in the intense and relentless drumming provided by Bryan Newbury (recently recruited by Canadian prog/death powerhouse INTO ETERNITY), as well as the well-rounded rhythm provided by Drew Copland on guitar and Mike Puff on bass, and you get a monster that is only now being unleashed upon the masses with vocalist Jesse Berube topping things off with a combination of brutal death growls and Tomas Lindberg-esqe high shrieks, which will be plenty noticeable on their new album Infection Legacy.

Full album stream of Infection Legacy can be heard here or here along with being purchased here.

NERO DI MARTE To Release Split With VOID OF SLEEP

Italian atmospheric unit NERO DI MARTE will be releasing a split 7″ EP with Void of Sleep after both bands’ gear and equipment were stolen before a recent show in Rome.

The band stated: 

“In less than 30 minutes, someone broke into our van and was able to take everything. It happened in broad daylight near a police station in Rome, despite there being a massive amount of police forces surveilling the area but, alas, no security cameras. Guitars, amps, pedal boards, drums, merchandise and personal belongings… a total of 25,000€ was stolen from both bands.” 

The EP will consist of a new track from each group, which will be recorded at Studio 73 in Ravenna, Italy. The bands have set up a fundraiser through Indiegogo containing packages including signed merchandise, Skype lessons and even the opportunity for your own private show HERE:

NERO DI MARTE released their self-titled debut last spring. The album, available HERE, received high ratings from the press, including a 4/5 star review from Revolver (which described the band as “a gifted and talented love child of Leviathan-era Mastodon and latter-day Death”). Having previously performed in Europe alongside acts including Godflesh, Carcass, Immolation, Cynic, Decapitated, Red Fang and Svart Crown, the band recently completed first-ever North American tour alongside Gorguts and Origin.
