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.

CHOSEN Crosses 5,000 Downloads of Debut Album

amr_logo_smal_570

Today’s digital age has made metal more accessible than ever as the internet has been a key tool in creating word of mouth between metal fans and their love for the music. Irish extreme metal band CHOSEN recently demonstrated this by offering their debut album Resolution for free download via their official website, which has now reached over 5,000 FREE downloads since its release on March 30.

CHOSEN: David McCann (Drums & Percussion), Paul Shields (Vocals/Guitars)

Drummer/Percussionist David McCann is proud to comment the following:

“We’re simply blown away by overall response to Resolution and could never have predicted this intense level of interest. While 5,000 downloads in just one week may seem relatively small in the grand scheme of things, for a niche band such as ourselves it’s more than we could have ever expected and only reinforces the notion than putting this album up for free download was the right move.”

Produced by Alwyn Walker, Resolution is a reflection of sheer perseverance and innovation, brimming with top-notch musicianship, well-crafted arrangements and inventive hooks. Merged with a rich audio production value, void of the sterile, homogeneous and plastic instrumentation factor, which currently dominates the commercial metal market, this debut album from one of Ireland’s noteworthy metal bands is a truly refreshing piece of work.

Resolution is also available in two special edition CD formats:

The Deluxe Special Edition is a double CD that features a 9-track bonus disc of unreleased songs, rough mixes, drum and bass tracks taken from their album sessions along with a detailed album booklet.

The Collector’s Edition is a spawn of the Deluxe Special Edition that includes a beautiful 60-page, full colour soft cover booklet, extensive liner notes, lyrical themes and illustrations for each song, rare photos, studio diaries and more, all exhibited within an exquisite tapestry of expanded album artwork courtesy of Fiaz Farrelly making it a must have item for those who want something a little more tangible to add to their music collection.

SPEKTR Song From New Album Now Available

A full track track off SPEKTR‘s new album entitled Cypher is streaming here.

The French duo – who’s identity remains shrouded in mystery – will release the new opus on February 19 in North Amercia on Agonia Records. The release is already available in Europe.

Cypher is an experimental black metal album, recorded entirely without vocals except sampling. The album introduces industrial and ambient elements and as a whole should be considered as a strongly psychedelic release; it produces a feeling, as if the mind of the listener, dragged into the music, were unable of concentrate itself or were experiencing a powerful hallucinogen effect.

Successor of Near Death Experience (from 2006) will is made available as CD, Vinyl (150 on white & 150 on black vinyl) and digital download. Cypher includes 9 new tracks:

1 – Hermetism
2 – Teratology
3 – The Singularity
4 – Solitude
5 – Antimatter
6 – Solve Et Coagula
7 – Cypher
8 – Decorporation
9 – Le Vitriol du Philosophe
