OCEANO Stream New Single

Los Angeles, CA – First breathing life in 2006, OCEANO first emerged onto the extreme metal scene via the Chicago underground. The band quickly established an intense work ethic and set their sights on being one of the loudest, angriest and most intense bands around. After a few member changes and some slight adjustments to their sound, OCEANO are now set to release their third album, INCISIONS on October 1, 2013.

FACT Release New Live Performance Music Video

FACT and Alternative Press Magazine are exclusively bringing you the new live performance music video for Tonight. The track is a great starter song for new fans, as Tonight is essentially the essence of the band condensed into just over a minute. The band expertly displays their effortless ability to mix blast beat-laden metalcore and pop-punk influenced harmonies—a skill that is evident throughout FACT’s new album Burundanga, which drops on its new release date of June 4, 2013 via Good Fight Music. Take a look at the new video for Tonight at this location.

 

FACT vocalist/guitarist Adam Graham states,

“The video was shot when we did a (sold out) headline show at a venue called The Pipeline in London in March this year after our UK tour with Your Demise. It was rad.”

Graham adds,

“The track Tonight was recorded in Florida with Elvis Baskette (as was the rest of the album), and it’s probably one of my favourite songs on the record. Lyrically, Tonight is a song about realising the moment you’re in and seizing the opportunities that that moment presents. Not wanting to sound pretentious or anything, but it’s about that moment of epiphany when you realise that you’re the one who controls your own destiny. It’s a positive message – it’s about takings control and taking responsibility. It fits into the lyrical theme of the album as a whole because a lot of Burundanga is about being able to take the positives out of loss and regret – everyone has dark stuff happen to them, but it’s all about being able to pick out the specks of light in those dark times, and Tonight is all about doing that right now.”

FACT has another video up for viewing, this time for the track Pink Rolex, exclusively available on their Facebook page. Check it out at this location.

Burundanga is a digital-only release and will be available from iTunes, Amazon and all your favorite digital music retailers. 

With the band’s last two records charting in the Top 10 in their native Japan, the band has continued to enhance their burgeoning reputation with intensive touring both on home turf and across the United States and Europe – touring which has seen them play on the main stage at festivals such as Sonisphere (UK) and Summer Sonic (Japan) as well as forge a hardcore following with a series of club tours alongside established international touring acts Your Demise, Iwrestledabearonce, Senses Fail and Memphis May Fire amongst many others. At the present, FACT has sold roughly 260,000 albums worldwide.

Tracklist:

1. FOSS (Watch video)

2. 1000 Miles

3. Pink Rolex (Watch video)

4. Melt

5. Tonight

6. Polyrhythm Winter (Watch video)

7. Kyou

8. Eighty Six

9. Crying

10. Mimic

PRE-ORDER ON ITUNES HERE

Producers Brandon Paddock and Taylor Larsen (PERIPHERY), who’ve done various production and engineering work with THE USED, PAPA ROACH and BLACK VEIL BRIDES, among others have helped CONDITIONS craft an album that is leaps and bounds beyond their already impressive debut, Fluorescent Youth.

“We wholeheartedly believed in our last record,” insists Roundtree.

DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT Album Available On CD/MP3

The three-track, 40-minute Widowmaker, the critically acclaimed new album by UK-based extreme metal act DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT, is now available for purchase. You can pick up a copy of the album on CD from the PROSTHETIC webstore HERE or digitally through Amazon MP3 or iTunes. Widowmaker is also available for pre-order on 12″ vinyl format in white, 180-gram black or clear vinyl with green splatter. The release of the LP, originally set for November 13, has been pushed back to December 18 due to manufacturing delays, but pre-orders are still expected to begin shipping in late November.

Hailed as a “crushing musical experience easily among the year’s best extreme-metal records” by Revolver, Widowmaker was named “album of the month” in the new issue of Terrorizer. The album also garnered 4/5 ratings from Alternative Press — who claimed “music doesn’t get much more devastating than this” — as well MSN Entertainment (who also awarded it “Album of the Week”). The members of DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT — whose identities remain hidden by masks, and who perform live with their backs to audiences in near total darkness — have claimed that the concept behind Widowmaker is “everything heavier and everything louder than everything else,” and that the album will “leave the listener thinking whether jumping out of a 4th floor window might actually be the best idea they’ve ever had.” It marks the group’s first release since 2010’s Hatred For Mankind, which Prosthetic reissued worldwide in 2011.
