WITHERFALL Release Acoustic Version Of ‘Ode to Despair’


US dark melodic metal act WITHERFALL is releasing an alternate arrangement of ‘Ode to Despair’. The original recording can be found on WITHERFALL‘s latest album “A Prelude To Sorrow” and is now going to be released as an acoustic version on the “Vintage EP”, which will be out on 22 March and available during the group’s upcoming European tour.

You can listen to ‘Ode to Despair’ here:

The band says, “Being invited as special guests on Sonata Arctica’s ‘Acoustic Adventures’ tour, we knew we had to re-imagine some of our songs to realise the vibe of the tour.  Our partners at Century Media came up with a brilliant idea of recording a few of these and including them on the upcoming ‘Vintage EP’. Being our most successful single to date, ‘Ode to Despair’ was the first one we thought of. The track was recorded in a split session bookending a tour of Japan with Kamelot. Vocals and guitars were literally followed by a 5am flight to the Far East then, after the tour, we headed straight from the airport to the studio. This is also the first song to incorporate new keyboardist; Alex Nasla. We also had the privilege of working with James “Timbali” Cornwell (Earth Wind & Fire, Janet Jackson) who provided the percussion that really makes this track standout.”

WITHERFALL already released another single from the “Vintage EP”. Watch the official video to their version of Tom Petty’s ‘I Won’t Back Down’ here:

26a2581a-cc07-4a25-9513-9cca9b28be80.jpg The “Vintage EP” is available for pre-ordering now, with WITHERFALL offering an exclusive green “Verdigris” vinyl limited to 200 copies alongside t-shirt bundles. The transparent-magenta “Vintage Pinot Noir” vinyl, limited to 100 copies, has already sold out from Century Media’s European Store.

RED METHOD Urge Followers to Worship New ‘Messiah’

From the ashes of Metastasis and The Defiled comes RED METHOD, who have released their new single and video in the form of ‘Messiah’.
The video, taken from the band’s upcoming debut album, centres around a cult initiating a new member, complete with skulls and snakes.
You can check out the video, directed by Richard Oakes and Adam Leader, here:
Carefully crafting songs that contain big grooves and hooks which translate immaculately in a live setting, ‘Messiah’ follows on from their first single ‘Split’, both of which will be part of the band’s debut album “For The Sick” due for release in 2019.
“We did this before we even knew what we where going to call the band, everything was kept on the down low and we had no help from anyone,” says lead singer Jeremy Gomez (ex-Metastasis & Ted Maul). “I had to direct the video myself and didn’t get any sleep for three days – but I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever created.  The extras were so committed: we even got a shot of a guy chewing real live maggots!  We have no money for special effects, so what you see is what you get.”

RED METHOD also features Alex “The AvD” Avdis (formerly of Guinness World Record breakers, The Defiled).
“It was insanity!” adds Alex Avdis. “These guys are the most pro-active group of people I have ever worked with. Our lead guitarist Quinton had to become an impromptu lighting expert, whilst out bassist Will and other guitarist Dave became some kind of ingenious set designers! Our drummer Fred got shingles from all the stress…. Everyone had to become an expert at everything and the result was an amazing, high quality music video! I’ve probably spent thousands of pounds on videos that don’t even come close to the quality of this one. I’m so impressed with my band mates and proud to call them my brothers. We’re united and determined to see anything through, no mater what the cost.”
RED METHOD are playing the following shows, with more to follow:
16.03 London, Camden Rocks Presents @ The Monarch
22.03 Plymouth, Loz Fest @ The Junction
23.03 Weymouth, Finns
24.03 Bournemouth @ The Anvil

AFTER THE BURIAL announce new album, “Evergreen”; launch music video for “Behold The Crown”

The mighty AFTER THE BURIAL return with a cut-throat new full-length album Evergreen, which is set for release on 19th April via Sumerian Records. The group also kicks off a massive US tour alongside Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive in April (see all dates below), with Vein in the opening slot. 

The brand-new music video for the track, “Behold The Crown,” can now be viewed at the link below and it’s certainly not your typical metal video! AFTER THE BURIAL are now truly defining themselves as one of the genre’s most dynamic, ground-breaking artists

“Behold The Crown” Official Music Video

Pre-Orders Now Available At
Digital Pre-Orders w/ Behold The Crown (Instant Grat Track)

Trent Hafdahl (guitars) states: “The song-writing process is almost always the same, but the influence and motivation behind the music is always different. This time around we wrote an album that is wholeheartedly ATB. If you listen back through our catalog you can hear us experimenting with different sounds, soundscapes, playing techniques etc. Some of those have stood the test of time and are still used in our music today, and some were left behind because they didn’t really fit us. I feel very strongly that this album is OUR sound. Our fans could hear this anywhere, without any reference, and say ‘that sounds like an After The Burial riff.’ I guess you could say it’s a more mature release this time around because we weren’t stretching to experiment with stuff that we didn’t know would work. It’s heavy, it’s melodic, it’s slow at times and fast at others. It’s intense and free-flowing all in the same instance.”

Check out the artwork and track listing for Evergreen below:
  1. Behold The Crown
2. Exit, Exist
3. 11:26
4. In Flux
5. Respire
6. Quicksand
7. The Great Repeat
8. To Challenge Existence
9. A Pulse Exchanged   Hafdahl enthuses about After The Burial’s upcoming US tour: “On the KSE/PWD run, just like any tour, we’re striving to leave a mark on every person there that has never heard of us. I’ve always said we’ve gained more fans by people seeing us live than from them hearing us on record. There are tons of people that can probably attest to this, but my absolute favorite thing to hear from somebody after a show is ‘that was my first time seeing you guys!’ It’s like, fuck yeah! We did it!! Haha. For the folks that already know who we are, it’s going to be a party, just like every other time they’ve seen us. They already know that. No compromise, as we’re there to crush! We pride ourselves on being one of the tightest live bands in the game, but not at the cost of being entertaining. Give us a half hour of your evening and we’ll show you a good fucking time!”

Today, the duo release another stunning video, shot in LA with several nice guest appearances, to the title track of the upcoming album, which can be seen here:

THE PICTUREBOOKS comment: “This video that is about being in the present, being in the now and believing in yourself. It features people celebrating that with us, friends from LA who believed in us from day one. Pro Skater Ray Barbee played our first ever show in the US with us, Dennis Lyxzen gave us a chance by having us open for his band The International Noise Conspiracy which was our first bigger show, Imogen Lehtonen was on our first cover and in three of our music videos… Everyone in this video was a huge help along the way and Los Angeles, our second home, where all of this was filmed shaped this band in many ways.”

BACKYARD BABIES Release Music Video for Brand New Single ’44 Undead’


With the release of their anticipated new studio album “Sliver & Gold” just one week away, legendary Swedish rockers BACKYARD BABIES are now launching the third single ’44 Undead’ off of the album, along with an official music video for the track. 

Watch the brand new music video for ’44 Undead’ HERE!

’44 Undead’ is an anthemic, yet somewhat melancholic tune that showcases a more introverted side of the Backyard Babies, as opposed to the first two party smasher singles off of “Sliver & Gold” so far. Its memorable hook lines are sure to be stuck in your head for a while and have ‘instant fan favourite’ written all over it.

More than three years have passed since their last studio album “Four By Four”, but 2019 sees Nicke, Dregen, Johan and Peder return to celebrate their 30thanniversary in style with a brand new record entitled “Sliver & Gold” which is due to be released on 01 March 2019 via Century Media Records. In celebration of the bands anniversary, Century Media is releasing both limited formats as special editions that will come wrapped in gold foil and include five newly recorded acoustic bonus songs!  


You can pre-order the album HERE!

“Sliver & Gold” is available in the following formats:

Ltd. CD Digipak  Ltd. LP+CD (incl. LP Booklet) Digital

“Sliver & Gold” will contain 10 sizzling new songs following the exact same recipe that has made BACKYARD BABIES one of the most consistent rock bands of our time: a perfect balance between sleazy, punky, all-out party rock and roll on the one hand, and decidedly mature, thoroughly melancholic tunes on the other. While catchy sing-a-long smashers like the first single ‘Shovin’ Rocks’, album opener ‘Good Morning Midnight’, the anthemic ‘Bad Seeds’ or ’44 Undead’ will have you fist-pumping and footstompin’ along with your left foot in a cowboy boot and your right paw in a Chuck Taylor sneaker, the beautiful ballad-like album closer ‘Laugh Now, Cry Later’ will cause you to shed a tear or two into your Jack and Coke. What a ride!

The first half of 2019 will also see BACKYARD BABIES back on the road. Below you can see all the dates that have been confirmed thus far:

THE LOUNGE KITTENS Release a Tribute to Avicii; Open Up About Mental Health

THE LOUNGE KITTENS are showing fans something a little different with their latest release, a 4-song medley of tracks by Avicii, the Swedish DJ who sadly took his own life last year.

You can watch the Avicii medley here:

Delicately stepping into a new genre, the girls have used their latest music video to start their own conversation about mental health in the music industry and show fans a different side to the sequins and sparkles.

“As a band, we’ve been through a really difficult time. We very nearly didn’t make it and we’ve worked really hard, both personally and together, to mend what needed fixing.” says Zan Kitten. “These Avicii tracks ended up as a sort of soundtrack to that time, coincidentally managing to say a lot of the things we were feeling.”

“On the surface, Avicii’s music is so joyous and full of spirit and energy but lyrically, there is so much pain lying underneath that really became apparent and heart-breaking once he’d passed.” says Jen Kitten. “We all connected to his lyrics, from our own experiences with mental health and wanted to honour his music and celebrate the rise and fall of the creative mind.”
Throughout the week the ladies have posted candid videos of themselves talking about their own struggles with mental health and the rigours of being in a band.

“There is an unspoken understanding among touring performers and crew of the emotional toll that the lifestyle takes.” continues Timia Kitten. “It’s a strange, cyclical existence where relationships are tested and the temptation of excess is too much for many. We felt it important to give this video some context, while it features some epic highlights of our time together, its mixed with unseen footage of some of the more trying moments and sewn together with us constantly in the car, which is the reality of actually being in a band.” 

Fans of the band have lauded their efforts to get a conversation going and have shared many of their own experiences with the girls. “We’re not done.” says Zan. “It’s time to open up and be more honest. It’s honestly humbling to hear that our music has helped some of our fans to feel stronger, to laugh, to stick it out for another day. If us speaking about our experiences can help ONE person to identify and feel less alone, then it’s completely worth baring our souls.”

Unearth have just released the music video for “No Reprisal”. Fans can watch the music video, directed by Tim Dennesen, HERE . The track is off of the band’s new album Extinctions, which was released this past November via Century Media Records.

The band recently wrapped a co-headline Canadian tour with Darkest Hour and opening special guests The Agony Scene. Unearth is gearing up to tour the U.S. for a handful of West Coast dates supporting Soulfly starting in Spokane on February 22nd and ending in Los Angeles on February 26th. Following their U.S. dates, Unearth will hit the road again with Darkest Hour for another co-headline tour, this time in Europe. For more information and to purchase tickets to the band’s upcoming shows, visit their Facebook page HERE.

After an awe-inspiring 20 years of blazing trails and dominating stages, UNEARTH is now institutionalized as a relentless force in heavy metal, standing the test of time with consistently triumphant creative output, tireless road warrior resilience, Blue Collar style workmanship and a resolute determination to deliver the goods.


Unearth is Trevor Phipps (vocals), Ken Susi (guitar), Buz McGrath (guitar), Nick Pierce (drums), and Chris O’Toole (bass).
