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.

Riding out of Canada’s capital, Chariots of the Gods has one sole mission – to deliver straight up, balls-to-the-walls, in-your-face heavy metal. On the road since 2008, spreading its music to the masses, Chariots of the Gods has become known for blistering solos, gripping melodies, rioting vocals and drums that just won’t quit because, after all, that’s what it’s all about.

Having played with bands such as Misfits, Voivod, Despised Icon, Kataklysm, Blind Witness, Misery Index, Martyr, Fuck the Facts, Blackguard, Neuraxis, The Agonist, Reanimator and Insurrection and released a debut EP, Reverence, in 2010, Chariots of the Gods is now ready to unveil its latest masterpiece – Tides of War.

Produced by musical legend Glen Robinson (Queensryche, Gwar, Annihilator), the band’s debut full-length is set to storm the metal scene until there is nothing left, except Pure. Heavy. Fuckin’. Metal.

MUTINY WITHIN Activate Anti-Piracy Thing, New Single

MUTINY WITHIN is giving fans a full taste of their upcoming album Synchronicity with the release of their first single Embers.

The band released a music video directed and produced by Tommy Jones (Suffocation, Kataklysm, Soilwork, All Shall Perish) for the song Embers, in partnership with Metal Injection.

The song is also available for purchase via MUTINY WITHIN Bandcamp

Inline image 1

MUTINY WITHIN also partnered with Tommy Jones (the studio) in a brand new anti-piracy movement called Industry Embers.

In a society where downloading music for free has become accepted and even the norm, people on the outside rarely are able to grasp the true effects of their stealing and how it trickles down to all the aspects of the entire music industry.

Industry Embers is an anti-piracy organization and movement. The goal is to have individuals from different facets of the music industry spread the truth about the damaging effects piracy has on the music industry as a whole.

If you are purchasing music via service-based options, digital downloads, physical CDs, or vinyl, and paying the asking price, the industry salutes you. Industry Embers encourage fans and supporters of music and the Industry Embers objective to tweet their music purchases, regardless of genre, to @IndustryEmbers with the hashtag #BuyMusicOrItsByeMusic.

Inline image 2

Jones and MUTINY WITHIN know the downside to piracy all too well.

Jones notes,

“The guys in Mutiny Within were perfect examples of the difficulty an extremely talented new band faces to succeed in this age of online piracy, even after being signed to one of the largest metal labels.”

If you are reading this message, then you too are affected by piracy.  Support music.  Educate yourself.
