BETTER LEFT UNSAID Premiere New Song Online

Modesto, CA‘s Better Left Unsaid released the new track Mr. Dark from their upcoming new album online via their Facebook page at http://on.fb.me/16tcrKA. Better Left Unsaid will release their new self-titled album on June 18 via Epochal Artists Records/Capital Music Group. The album was recorded ProView Studios in Riverbank, CA Studios with producer Adam Ruppel (Systematic).

“We are extremely bored with most of the current metal trends. There’s not enough songwriting in a lot of newer metal. It’s getting too technical in a lot of ways, it’s almost like watching a movie that is just a giant car chase with no plot,” said says guitarist Greg Fender.

“There are plenty of other metal records that are super clean and perfect, but they’re also sterile. We wanted things to be raw and dark, dirty and ugly for this record, because sometimes everything is not going to be alright.”

Better Left Unsaid are a complex melodic metal machine that utilizes heavy grooves and technical precision to craft a powerful versatile attack. One minute, lead vocalist Adam Raffety lets loose anguished growls that sound a caged animal, and the next he’s belting out some of the most infectious melodies you’ve ever heard. Their versatility is their greatest asset and the band have bottled up all the trials and tribulations over the past few years, and unleashed them onto their explosive new self-titled album, Better Left Unsaid. The band employ a steadfast “do it yourself” attitude with their brutal brand of metal, that has seen them crisscross the country over seven times playing shows with the likes of Killswitch Engage, Devildriver, 3 Inches Of Blood, Daath, Mushroomhead, (Hed)P.E. and Hatebreed.

Better Left Unsaid tracks She Needs Violence and Threat Of Truth are featured on The Welding Room.

DARK SERMON Album Now Available

Logo: Nuclear Blast Records

Take the best, forget that rest: that’s the ethos behind Dark Sermon, whose musical outpouring conjures the fist-raising melody of European death metal, the blackened underbelly of bleak blast-beating musical warfare, the churning malevolence of technical
death metal and the uniquely down-to-earth flair of the NWOAHM and combines it all into something fresh and potent.

DARK SERMON - “In Tongues” out now! - 2013-04-12 00:00

The Press agrees:

Florida’s Dark Sermon take the best of young-pup hardcore-infused death metal and give it a much needed edge that’s been missing since Himsa‘s demise” – Revolver

“DARK SERMON look straight ahead. Straight, brutal Death Metal with thrashy riffs, high screams and a lot of speed” – Powermetal.de

“DARK SERMON plays pure Death Metal, there is neither an influence of Metalcore, nor from oldschool. Death Metal fans know what I’m talking about” – Myrevelations.de

Check the music video for the track In Tongues, here:
