Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie is now putting finishing touches on an upcoming second acoustic record entitled “Evocation II.” After a release show at Summer Breeze, Germany, the band led by Chrigel Glanzmann will embark on a European club tour to present these new songs to the fans live on stage.

Swedish modern melodic metallers Amaranthe will be accompanying Elevutie on this European adventure. The Charm The Fury will serve as opener. Chrigel comments on these upcoming shows:

“As you might know, we’re in Tommy Vetterli’s iconic Newsound studios at the moment, recording our upcoming album ‘Evocation II!’ But the ‘tour bug’ already got us once more and we can’t wait to finally hit the road again. And so we’re excited to announce our European tour this fall – all the more as we’ll be in fantastic company, for we’ll bring along our swedish friends from Amaranthe, as well as the shooting stars of The Charm The Fury, who will open the shows!

“And even though we’ll present brand new songs off our upcoming acoustic album, we’ll of course lay waste your cities with a full neckbreaker set! So expect nothing less than one hell of a fucking metal massacer! m/”

New Jersey-based instrumental hardcore outfit NY In 64 has released a first single from impending second album, “The Gentle Indifference Of The Night,” which is nearing release later this month through Magic Bullet Records.

The first example of the record’s lush riffs and tones is on display with “50 Lbs Of Ash” – listen in below. Offers guitarist Chris Alfano:

“For roughly a year and a half or so, NY In 64 has been in a long-distance relationship. Our bassist, Tom, moved to Albany, New York from New Jersey, but we were determined to keep the band going. ’50 Lbs of Ash’ was the first song we wrote in full after transitioning to a new way of doing things, which involved sending recordings back and forth and then cramming things into longer weekend sessions when we were able to get all four of us in the room.

“So I remember being especially happy with the way this one turned out – not just because it covers so much ground (from quiet and creepy, to us at our heaviest, to triumphant harmonies), but also because we wrote one of our best songs in spite of working around new logistical challenges. So uh…high-fives all around, I guess?”

NY In 64 has booked a record release weekend May 26th through 28th with shows in Flemington, Providence, and Brooklyn, and new tour dates are being planned as well.

5/27/2017 Psychic Readings – Providence, RI
5/28/2017 Gold Sounds – Brooklyn, NY

The follow-up to Alkaloid’s 2015 smash hit “The Malkuth Grimoire” (reviewed here) is now being recorded, with Hannes Grossmann issuing this update via Facebook:

“I’d like to do something unorthodox here. The clip below is a rough mix taken from the studio today and features a short sequence of the new Alkaloid album, which is going to be released on Season of Mist in early 2018.

“There is slight compression on the drums for raising the overall volume and the kick trigger added is for monitoring purposes (I don’t use it for the album mix). Other than that this is how my drum set sounds for real, completely dry. I really really like it. The clip is taken from a 19-minute song which will be on the new album.

“It is the most extreme section, most other parts on the album will be a lot more melodic than this. Recorded at Mordor Sond Studio.”

Michigan heavy rockers Bison Machine just signed to Small Stone Records. The Hamtramck-based volume dealers have been on a this-time-it’s-personal quest to hand-deliver riffs across the country since the 2015 release of debut album, “Hoarfrost.”

Now this hungry group is ready to take the game to the next level, preparing a new album for release later this year. Bison Machine will enter Rustbelt Studios (Five Horse Johnson, Halfway to Gone, Novadriver) later this summer to record.

“It’s amazing,” enthuses Bison Machine bassist Anthony Franchina about the signing. “Small Stone has released some of my favorite records, from Sasquatch to Greenleaf to Lo-Pan, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to work with Scott [Hamilton] on our next record, which is going to completely blow away everything we’ve done before. We’ll be hitting the road too, so keep an eye out!”

“I can’t wait to hear what Bison Machine brings to this next record,” says Scott Hamilton of Small Stone Records. “They’ve been unstoppable on tour for the last couple years and I’m thrilled to welcome them into the Small Stone fold representing the next generation of great American heavy rock and roll.”

Roxx Records will be re-releasing a classic Ultimatum album on vinyl, with the label issuing this statement:

“Please join us as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of this seminal underground Christian thrash album entitled ‘Puppet of Destruction!’ Yes that’s right we are proudly releasing a limited edition vinyl pressing of the album from Ultimatum which is actually the band’s second full-length studio release.

“Originally recorded in 1997 and released in 1998 via Rowe Productions the album was well received but the band was never quite happy with that original releases master and mix. So Roxx Records would go on to remaster and reissue ‘Puppet of Destruction’ on CD to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release. Now as we approach the 20th anniversary of this album Roxx has spared no expense making this release extra special for the fans and the band as we celebrate Ultimatum and their ‘Puppet of Destruction’ with its first ever VINYL release!

“This limited edition pressing of only 150 hand numbered copies is on a very cool green and black swirl vinyl, with full color center rings. The artwork was reimagined and reworked by Scott Waters (No Life til Metal/Roxx Records) and each pressing comes with an enclosed limited edition 11 x 17 poster with new artwork designed by Andy Borders to celebrate the 20th anniversary!

“Also in honor of this anniversary we have printed a very special run of the ‘Live Through The Years’ DVD that was originally only released as a part of the limited edition box set which has been sold out for years. This is your chance to get a copy of that DVD as part of a vinyl package or as a stand-alone DVD. The DVD features a live performance in California from the Up From The Ashes 3 festival as well as a host of other videos and performances jam packed in to one DVD. Even more we have a VERY limited number of a special print of the ‘Puppet of Destruction’ poster artwork on a limited edition t shirt. There is a VERY limited amount of these and they will be a part of the Ultimate Puppet Package and when they are gone so is this package.

“The Ultimatum Ultimate package will include everything above including a copy of the remastered and expanded CD which we only have 50 copies remaining of before being completely sold out as well.”

Saosin enhanced a subgenre that continues to resonate and evolve throughout time. With multiple Billboard Top 40 charting releases under the band’s belt and the release of 2016’s “Along The Shadow” featuring the return of original vocalist Anthony Green, Saosin continue to raise the bar.

Nail The Mix is pleased to host Saosin guitarist, producer, and engineer Beau Burchell as May 2017’s guest mixer. Walking the line between musician and producer can be a hefty balance, but Burchell has excelled at both – producing, engineering and/or mastering albums by the likes of Emery, Underoath, It Prevails and of course, Saosin.

This month, Burchell will dissect his striking mix of the band’s recent hit track, “The Silver String,” cut from latest album, “Along The Shadow.”

Beau Burchell will lead an exclusive livestreaming class offering a complete walkthrough of how he mixed “The Silver String/” NTM subscribers can download the multi-tracks today, then join Burchell for the livestream on May 28th. NTM will also host a Q&A chat with Burchell on May 15th at 2:00pm ET, exclusively available to subscribers.

Burchell says, “I’m very happy to join Nail The Mix to explain every aspect of the mixing process for Saosin’s ‘The Silver String.’ I’m fascinated with music and not only how to create and manipulate it, but why. So, to be part of something like this as an educator and fully exposed is an honor and very exciting.

“I’m excited to get into the details of how I worked on this record specifically. For instance, this was the first record I produced that was entirely amp simulators for the sake of portability and consistency between recording sessions and environments. Also, I don’t think we stopped adding guitars to this song until we printed the final mix. Obviously not an ideal situation… but regardless, you’ll learn more by joining Nail The Mix this month!”

NTM’s Eyal Levi adds, “There are originators, and there are followers. No in between. Like most of the Nail The Mix catalog, Saosin fall firmly into the first category. Not only that, but they have one of the greatest rock n’ roll singers of all time, Mr. Anthony Green. That’s why I’m proud to announce that the month of May 2017, Saosin with guitarist/producer/mixer Beau Burchell will be featured on Nail The Mix. Come learn how it’s done from the non-disputed creators of post-hardcore.”

Industrial / doom duo Anima Nostra has completed work on a second full-length album, titled “Atraments,” which is set for a June 16th release through Malignant Records.

Initially the name of a collaborative CD between Henrik Nordvargr Björkk and Margaux Renaudin released on Cold Spring in 2016, the duo has now relabeled and solidified under the Anima Nostra moniker, and in turn, broadly expanded the existing sonic palette, taking more intimate ritual ambient aspects of the debut, and incorporating them as part of towering constructs that blur the line between death industrial, doom metal, and neo-classical.

Completed with artwork by Thomas Ekelund, “Atraments” will see release through Malignant Records digitally and on digipak CD this coming June 16th.

1. Composition For The Shadow Self
2. Naamah, Blameless
3. Tabula Smaragdina
4. Solemn Majesty
5. Anima Nostra
6. Intermezzo For The Double Wanded One
7. Doxologia Yaldabaoth
8. The Seal

With song titles like “You’re a Fucking Dick” and “All Out of Bubblegum,” you would think that M.O.D. – shorthand for Method of Destruction – isn’t masking any intentions on this upcoming new album.

In fact, it would be a logical assumption that Billy Milano and co. are putting their unabashed and unedited thoughts and feelings out there for all to see and hear with “Busted, Broke, and American.” The album will be released July 7th via Megaforce Records.

“I had taken off time with M.O.D. in 2009,” Milano recalls. “We had done 100 shows for 2007’s ‘Red, White & Screwed.’ I needed a break. My dog Buster, an American bulldog, got sick with cancer and I started to play guitar again while staying home with him. I started jamming again, anticipating something quick, but it wasn’t.”

“I just started playing guitar, while sitting there, looking at him, giving him medicine,” he says. “I wanted to run and play with my dog, and I couldn’t. The only way to be with him was to sit there and play guitar. I had no goal to do a record. I just wrote all the material.”

While Milano may be older and wiser these days, he’s not any softer. He’s admittedly still cynical and music remains something he loves doing and he still operates off the zero fucks given principle. “I don’t give a fuck, but I like playing,” he reasons. “I like making records. It’s like cooking – it’s an extension of me.”

8. Shattered Dreams & Broken Glass
