Canadian group All Else Fails is now back from the band’s first international tour of India perfoming at Unmaad Fest and the Alcheringa Festival. Set to unleash new EP “The Forever Lie” on February 17th, All Else Fails is today streaming second single “Beneath The Waves.”

Vocalist / guitarist Barret Klesko had this to say about the track: “When we were writing ‘The Forever Lie,’ ‘Beneath The Waves’ was the turning point in the process, it was the song that really got us excited about the disc.

“It’s heavy, but its super melodic, its got an ultra catchy chorus hook, which is followed by some odd time signature heaviness, and it has a ton of variety. It just captures and sums up the album really well. We always try to keep our albums sounding different from each other, and this one to me sounds like nothing we have done in the past.”

1. Beneath The Waves (4:12)
2. The Sons of Plenty (3:35) [watch the video]
3. The Forever Lie (3:34)
4. Twice Broken (4:44)
5. Broken (4:11)
6. Terracide (7:54)

San Diego-based brutal death metal unit Condemned will unleash third full-length album “His Divine Shadow” on March 10th via Unique Leader.

“His Divine Shadow” is a vast, horrific tale of a darkened parallel universe inhabited by an insect humanoid civilization that lives dominated and enslaved by a mysterious ruler called His Divine Shadow. Spread across ten tracks, Condemned carries on a brutal legacy with punishing riffs, fast, chaotic grooves, planet-rupturing breakdowns, Suffocation/Disgorge-ian style blasts, and an overall dark, menacing ambiance.

In advance of the album’s official unveiling, today an official lyric video for “Legion” comes online and can be seen below. Issues the band: “‘Legion’ is about manipulation and control. Being powerless in the midst of something greater than you. When your actions are no longer of your own volition and autonomy is lost. About being reduced to a pawn and used to carry out one’s vilest machinations.”

After streaming “The Rise Of Hannibal” back in December, now it’s time to take the next step and dive deeper into Ex Deo’s upcoming album “The Immortal Wars.” Check out a music video for “The Roman” below. Ex Deo also comments:

“‘The Roman’ is a song celebrating the roman soldier for his discipline, his loyalty and his will to victory, the most fierce war machine ever assembled not by individual conquest but by teamwork, they changed the world in warfare… this video was filmed in a remote area in Belgrade, Serbia with a great team who put a lot of hard work and heart into it, we tried to be as historical accurate as we could with what we had at our disposal, it’s not to meant to be a reproduction of Hannibal’s last confrontation with Scipio but we flirted with the idea. Enjoy!”

New Ex Deo album “The Immortal Wars” will be released worldwide on February 24th, 2017 via Napalm Records and features the following track listing:

1 The Rise of Hannibal
2 Hispania (The Siege of Saguntum)
3 Crossing of the Alps
4 Suavetaurilia (Intermezzo)
5 Cato Major: Carthago delenda est!
6 Ad Victoriam (The Battle of Zama)
7 The Spoils of War

Out today – February 10th – Toronto, ON’s Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy unleashes new EP “Mixed Messages” to continue the band’s solid chemistry of an Allcore metal sound with emotionally stirring and socially conscious lyrics.

“We like to call what we do ‘Allcore’ … To break it down as far as metal sub-genres go, I think what best describes us would be a blend of progressive & nu-metal, with post-hardcore & metalcore …or numetalcore if you’d like!” says vocalist Adrian Pain.

New EP “Mixed Messages” is a marriage of Adrian Pain’s solo endeavours and The Dead Sexy’s band work. Pain describes the release:

“This release is like the gateway drug to metal and heavier music in general! We appeal to a very wide range of musical tastes so guys can play us for their girlfriends, and girls can play us for the guys. If you identify another way, you can play us for whomever you’d like. If any negative response comes out of it, it’ll be the fans that expect every song to get heavier with each effort.

“What I hope they notice is the constant evolution of our sound. The music itself is getting more and more diverse and progressive, while the song structures are also evolving into bigger, more complex arrangements. I want everyone that listens to this record to feel an emotional connection. I want people to relate to, and hear the MESSAGE in each track.”
