“At its best, Heart of Oak is immediate and electrifying, an album that suggests Anciients’ half-prog, half-pop metal is bound for big stages” – Pitchfork

“Anciients harness the power of prog for a greater good, making music you might actually remember. Scratch that — will remember. These guys are gonna be big” – Stereogum

“The band are nothing if not highly ambitious, as the wide range of sounds demonstrates, Anciients shifting from stoner rock to blasting death-lite to tricky, tech-y prog like no one’s business” – Exclaim

“Heart Of Oak is an impressive many-sided record that will please a diversified group of music fans. Devotees of all things metal and rock will find something that Anciients does to love” – Stereokiller

SCALE THE SUMMIT Announce Tour With TESSERACT, ANCIIENTS

Fresh off a successful tour with Intronaut, instrumental progressive quartet SCALE THE SUMMIT will return to the road this fall during a North American tour with Tesseract. The three-week trek — which immediately follows Tesseract’s tour with Katatonia and Cult of Luna — kicks off in Canada on Oct. 9 and also features opening act Anciients.


In addition, SCALE THE SUMMIT was recently invited to take part in next year’s Cruise To The Edge with legendary English group Yes, with whom they will also take the stage this weekend at the inaugural progressive rock festival Yestival at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ. This marks another addition to the impressive list of groups SCALE THE SUMMIT will have performed alongside, a who’s-who of progressive metal ranging from modern genre leaders Protest the Hero, Periphery and Between The Buried And Me to iconic acts such as Dream Theater, Cynic and Devin Townsend.
Upon its June release, SCALE THE SUMMIT’s new album The Migration cracked the Billboard Top 200, peaking at #3 on the magazine’s Heatseekers chart. Recorded at Basement Studios with Jamie King (BTBAM), The Migration received a perfect 10/10 score from Outburn Magazine and a near-perfect 4.5-star rating from Alternative Press, who labeled the album “post-rock at its most melodic and dynamic best.”

Prosthetic Records to Release GOJIRA Re-Issues

By popular demand, Prosthetic Records will soon issue gatefold double-LP editions of the two albums that rocketed the French progressive tech-death quartet GOJIRA from the European underground to international stardom. From Mars To Sirius and The Way Of All Flesh – two of the most acclaimed metal releases of the past decade – will be released on vinyl on August 27. Pre-orders are available now.

Selected praise for From Mars To Sirius:
* Decibel Magazine Top 10 of 2006
* “Epic…a masterpiece…9/10.” — Blabbermouth
* “One of the year’s freshest metal inventions” — L.A. Times
* Revolver Magazine #4 release of 2006

Originally issued overseas in 2005, From Mars To Sirius – released by Prosthetic in 2006, and never before available on LP in North America – was the Western Hemisphere’s formal introduction to GOJIRA. One of MetalSucks‘ Top 10 “best metal albums of the 21st Century so far,” the album was supported by U.S. tours with the likes of Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Behemoth and Amon Amarth. The gatefold 2-LP set will be available in three 180-gram variants: “Eco-Green” (600 copies), “Mars Red” (200 copies) and “Sea Blue” (200 copies), the latter two of which are mail-order exclusives.

Selected praise for The Way Of All Flesh:
* Decibel Magazine Top 15 of 2008
* Revolver Magazine #2 release of 2008
* “likely to be every bit as vital 10 years from now” – Kerrang!
* Metal Hammer Magazine #5 release of 2008

Engineered, mixed and mastered by Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, DevilDriver, Fear Factory), follow-up The Way Of All Flesh (2008) cemented GOJIRA’s status as one of metal’s most important acts. The band’s first release to crack the Billboard Top 200, the album – which features a guest appearance by Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe – was supported by tours with the likes of In Flames and All That Remains, in addition to a month touring North American arenas with Metallica. The gatefold 2-LP set marks the first time in three years that the album will be available on vinyl, and it will be offered in two new variants: 180-gram clear (500 copies), and a mail-order exclusive, standard-weight blue/white split vinyl (500 copies).

Over its 15-year history, Los Angeles-based Prosthetic Records has proudly helped to establish the careers of alumni such as Lamb of God, All That Remains, Animals As Leaders, The Acacia Strain and Kylesa, in addition to current roster heavyweights such as Skeletonwitch, Scale The Summit and Holy Grail. The label’s two GOJIRA releases are among the best-selling titles in its catalog.

 

MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT Premiere New Song

This year marks the ten-year anniversary of the undeniably spine-crushing band MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT.  While many have anticipated the apocalypse in 2012, MOTA has been accurately predicting and creating the soundtrack for such a disaster since 2003.  There is perhaps no better way to celebrate such a milestone than by releasing a new face melting full-length record, and MOTA has never failed in that regard.

Get an exclusive first listen to the track, Sharpen Your Axes HERE.

The song How Will This End is streaming HERE.

The song It Swarms is streaming HERE.

Dawning is available for pre-order HERE.

The current lineup consists of drummer Dave Mann, guitarists and vocalists Steve Brooks and Kevin Schindel, keyboardist and vocalist Jason Watkins, and bassist Evan Danielson.  The band plans to celebrate its ‘most glorious birthday’ by releasing a psychedelic-tinged sludge-rock masterpiece.  Remaining under the long time label support of Translation Loss Records, their new album Dawning bludgeons its way to the top of their long catalog of doom rock greatness.  These dudes last proved their heavy-metallic weight in gold when they made it through a volcanic eruption to play the Roadburn Festival on their 2010 European tour in support of The Violence Beneath. This year these well-worn road veterans plan on bringing their incredibly loud and extremely hairy brand of post-metal to a venue near you in support of Dawning.  Of course, you have to live in the northern hemisphere to get your chance to witness this rock ‘n roll spectacle.

MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT will be touring in support of Dawning this summer with Intronaut and Scale the Summit.

This instructional guide focuses around all of the various “plucking-hand” techniques and includes 16 chapters (143 pages), over 120 unique exercises, photos, descriptive “how-to” captions and a variety of diverse exercises targeting essentially every skill level. A full-gloss front cover and spiral-bounding for easier reading also included.
