TRIOSCAPES Announce Two December Shows

iTunes Top 10 charting jazz album, Separate Realities is available now

Trioscapes will be performing two more shows in 2012 in support of their latest album, Separate Realities. The shows, scheduled for December 15 and 16, will wrap up 2012 for the band, which was highlighted by a tour in September with Scale The Summit, and a top 10 debut on the Billboard Traditional Jazz charts.

A live performance of Curse of the Ninth from Separate Realities can be seen on metalblade.com/trioscapes. The video exemplifies the band’s immense talent and creativity and is a must-see for anyone remotely interested in all things progressive.

“prog-jazz mania with relentless, wailing saxophones and off-kilter drum fills that would make most fans of Between The Buried And Me wonder what the fuck was put into their orange juice this morning” – Alternative Press Magazine

“combining technical metal and jazz in a way that underlines an unseen connection between the two styles” – BloodyGoodHorror.com

“Trioscapes is not just a prototypical jazz fusion band that you’d hear in some smoky club as background music. These songs have a groove to them, a pulse that beats to the tight-as-a-knot rhythm section” –  Lambgoat.com

TRIOSCAPES
12/15 Winston-Salem, SC Krankies
12/16 Charlotte, NC The Milestone

LEGION Signs With EOne/Good Fight Music

(NEW YORK, NY) – Columbus metalers LEGION signed a worldwide deal with eOne / Good Fight music and will release a brand new record in the spring of 2013.

LEGION: Michael Guilford (Vocals), Chris Dragics (Guitar), Alex Heiberger (Guitar), Mason Prince (Bass), Jake Rodriguez (Drums)

The band is currently gearing up for the END OF THE WORLD TOUR supporting JOB FOR A COWBOY this winter. Guitarist Alex Heiberger comments on the news:

“Over the last year and a half or so, we have been hard at work writing and looking for the perfect label to help us release our new material. When we were told that eOne / Good Fight was interested in us we could not have been more stoked. There are so many bands on the label that have influenced us since the beginning and it is an honor to now be a part of a great label.”

Gaining exposure through their own DIY touring and performances at the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, the band has come a long way in a short amount of time.

EDGE OF ATTACK Announce Debut Album Release Date

Grande Prairie, Alberta power-thrash five-piece EDGE OF ATTACK are proud to announce the official release of their debut self-titled album via Halifax based label Spread The Metal Records on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, which is now available for pre-order at here, along with the first single Forever, which can be heard in the band’s latest music video below.

Left to right: Dallas Dyck (Rhythm guitar), Roxanne Gordey (Vocals), Jurekk Whipple (Lead guitar, vocals), Denver Whipple (Bass), Trevor Swain (Drums)

Produced by EAO guitarist/vocalist Jurekk Whipple, the debut features ten tracks of haunting vocals, shredding guitars, complex bass lines, furious drumming plus choral and symphonic arrangements along with guest artists by solo artist Ivan Gianinni, Ryan Boivard (Hallows Die) and Pellek (Damnation Angels).

Vocalist Roxanne Gordey comments:

“We have been looking forward to this for so long! For us, this album represents our dedication to our fans. They have shown the utmost loyalty and patience, so we hope that our efforts have an opportunity to shine with this release. Our journey through these songs has spurred a creative evolution of Edge of Attack, and with that we hope our self-titled LP will mark our place in the metal community.”

EDGE OF ATTACK – BIO:

No good could possibly come out of the frigid Northern lands of Alberta, you say? Well, sorry to tell you, there’s an exception to every rule. Enter smoldering power-thrash five-piece Edge of Attack.

Combining haunting vocals, shredding guitars, complex bass lines, furious drumming and choral and symphonic arrangements with surprising depth, Edge of Attack has not only taken the metal scene by storm, but also by surprise. Having been featured in Revolver magazine, you’d think the band has surely been around for years, but truth be told, they’ve accomplished all this while releasing no more than two singles.

Representing the changes that have taken place and the reinvention of Edge of Attack’s sound, the self-titled album, which was produced by guitarist/vocalist Jurekk Whipple himself and is soon to be released with Spread the Metal Records, is, simply put, a reawakening and rebirthing of power metal with thrash creeping its way into the picture.
