About HIGH ON FIRE:

Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, HIGH ON FIRE creates modern heavy metal that merges primal fury and aggression, hesher bombast and hall of fame heaviness.  Described as “a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume,” HIGH ON FIRE has rewritten the hard rock rule book since its formation in 1998, forging a style and sound that is both critically celebrated and absolutely unique.  The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike — also a founding member of the famed underground band SLEEP — along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff Matz.  Pike was named as one of Rolling Stone‘s “New Guitar Gods” and is one of rock’s most charismatic figures. HIGH ON FIRE’s latest album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3, 2012.

The album can be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon. The artwork for the album was created by the renowned California art collective – The Date Farmers.

VISTA CHINO will embark on a North American headline tour in support of Peace. Support on the tour will come from the Portland Oregon rock outfit known as Black Pussy. The tour kicks off September 6 in Calgary, Alberta and runs through September 28 in Columbus, Ohio.

LORD DYING Premiere New Video

LORD DYING come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff.  A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. In a time where everyone is trying to out-sludge or out-doom each other LORD DYING gives something less than a fuck. They are a metal band with members of Black Elk , Portals, Le Force, and Cremains, who in their short, one year’s time as a band have shared the stage with Red Fang, Down, Unsane, Yob, Valient Thorr, Ghost and many others.

The band recently finished work on a video for the song Dreams of Mercy. The video was shot by Whitey McConnaughy (Red Fang, ZZ Top). Check it out HERE.

LORD DYING’s debut Summon the Faithless is available now on Relapse Records.  The album is available in CD and LP formats which can be purchased HERE and digitally via iTunes.

Summon the Faithless can be streamed in full on LORD DYING’s band camp page.

After a quick break from touring the US with label-mates HOWL, LORD DYING will return to the road with Valient Thorr and Ramming Speed.  These dates kick off September 9in Denver, CO and run through September 25 in Nashville, TN. The band also has confirmed a festival appearance at Phil Anselmo’s inaugural Housecore Horror Film Fest alongside Pig Destroyer, Down, Repulsion and many others!  All dates can be found below.

After releasing a self-titled EP in 7″ form, the dudes kicked it up a notch, heading out on national tours with Witch Mountain followed by a long trek with label-mates Red Fang and Black Tusk. Fast forward to 2013 and LORD DYING are poised to be the new heavyweight champions of metal.  Smashing the riffs of High On Fire into the groove of Kylesa, LORD DYINGhave delivered one of the most impressive metal debuts in a long, long time.  A young band that has matured well beyond their years into a fully developed titanic heavy metal machine, LORD DYING’s new album is poised to be one of the best debuts of 2013.

EARTHLESS Premiere New Song, Announce Album Release Date

Award-winning San Diego power rock band EARTHLESS has completed work on its brand new album From the Ages.  The first new studio album from the globally celebrated trio since the release of 2007’s critically acclaimed Rhythms from a Cosmic Sky, the LP was recorded in San Francisco with producer Phil Manley (Trans Am, The Fucking Champs, SubArachnoid Space). An hour-long double LP, From the Ages will see an October 8 release date via Tee Pee Records. Now, Pitchfork gives music fans the first taste of new EARTHLESS, premiering the stunning 14-minute new song “Uluru Rock.” Check out EARTHLESS‘ “Uluru Rock” now at THIS location!
EARTHLESSFrom the Ages is available to pre-order now via iTunes.
Formed in 2001, EARTHLESS prides itself on creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking instrumental music inspired by an eclectic mix of German krautrock and Japanese heavy blues-rock. The Californian trio has dedicated itself to mastery of the mind-bending jam session, evoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath in equal measure. Named after a song title from vintage New York garage-psych band The Druids of Stonehenge, EARTHLESS‘ sound has been called “A sonic kaleidoscope of lava and lightning”, earning it the title of “California’s loudest band.” The group delivers “one of the best live shows in all of modern, heavy rock,” leading to one reviewer stating that the band’s “epic shredding harkens back to the days were psychedelic rock had balls the size of grapefruits and wasn’t afraid to take its listeners on a ride for which they may never return.”
Each member of EARTHLESS has done time in many other bands. Drummer (and former pro skater) Mario Rubalcaba currently plays in the hardcore punk band OFF! and has also occupied the drum throne in Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes amongst many others. Bassist Mike Eginton played with Electric Nazarene and guitarist Isaiah Mitchell was most recently in Howlin’ Rain, has played with Nebula and Drunk Horse and also heads up the Bay Area band Golden Void. In the end, EARTHLESS is the musical rock that grounds the three musicians and now, after more than half a decade since the release of their last studio LP, EARTHLESS has returned and is out to prove — through sheer rock power — why they are considered the cream of the modern day heavy psych scene.
“We feel this is some of the strongest material that we have ever created and we cannot wait to get out there and share it with everyone in a live setting,” said the band when asked for comment.
From the Ages‘ sprawling, epic cover art was created by renowned rock music poster artist Alan Forbes (Queens of the Stone Age, SWANS, Black Crowes) while the record’s surreal inner design was brought to life by the band’s own Mike Eginton.

“To describe EARTHLESS’ music is a bit like describing a dream.  In fact, there’s nothing altogether straightforward about the band’s sound except, well, that they fucking rock. Yeah, let’s go with that description: Fucking-rock” – SAN DIEGO CITYBEAT
“EARTHLESS purvey majestic acid rock, a genre that bakes the neurons with industrious instrumentals. And this trio blisters more brain cells than most.  EARTHLESS keeps even this interpretation ruggedly exploratory, moving with transcendent skill from classic rock badlands to heavy metal cosmos” – SF WEEKLY
“EARTHLESS can do dynamics, shifting from hazy clouds of feedback to sludgy doom riffage, but they generally don’t. Instead the band starts at 100% speaker-cone-bursting ear-drum-rattling intensity and stays there for as long as physically possible. It’s sort of like doing level-4 hot yoga in the chamber of Tommy Chong’s bong” – WASHINGTON CITY PAPER
“Think of Hendrix playing with Sabbath without the vocals and add Cream’s sense of movement and thud… insanely gifted EARTHLESS: they’re a whole other thing in American power rock right now. They point a way that few will be able to follow” – ALL MUSIC
“Music so freewheeling that it begs to be slathered with hyperbole. You know, the usual ‘gamma rays of madness bashing your DNA into the Stone Age on laser fingers’ type of thing. EARTHLESS have massive chops” – STYLUS
“infectiously good… thick guitar tones, and a rhythm section that would make any bandleader foam at the mouth make you wonder whether you are supposed to grab your air guitar or your air drums first” – ALARM 
“EARTHLESS weave together a formidable blend of shredderiffic classic rock / psychedelic stoner metal… this shit bops n bounces n totally slays through epically searching musical journeys in a supremely palatable and jaw-dropping way” – METALSUCKS

Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy,

Vengeance Falls is the culmination of everything we’ve gone through; the representation of struggle endured from within and experienced from the world. Every failure and every success has led us to this moment. Vengeance Falls is this moment in time.”

Producer David Draiman added,

Vengeance Falls is a masterpiece of metal. It is their finest work to date, and a record so strong that it will blow the doors open to a world they deserve to dominate.”

Long hailed as one of modern metal’s most powerful live acts, Trivium will hit the road hard in support of Vengeance Falls, kicking off with a North American co-headline tour alongside DevilDriver. The dates get underway Thursday, September 12 at Boise, Idaho’s Knitting Factory and then continue through October 17 in San Diego, California.
