As far as metalcore goes, The Devil Wears Prada always got the nuances and specifics right. A healthy balance of clean and screamed vocals, heavy and melodic riffs, and rhythms to breakdowns have always been a part of their writing. I feel that lately, metalcore is starting to drift from fast and bright to slow …

“Letters To Stallone”, the new video from the Los Angeles-based experimental heavy rock band IWRESTLEDABEARONCE, can be seen below. The clip features live, backstage and road footage compiled from the group’s recent European tour.

“Letters To Stallone” comes off IWRESTLEDABEARONCE‘s third studio album, “Late For Nothing”, which was released on August 6 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded, mixed and mastered by the group’s guitarist/programmer Steven Bradley at the band’s home studio in Los Angeles. It also marks IWRESTLEDABEARONCE‘s first record with their new singer Courtney LaPlante, who joined the band with only a day’s notice during last summer’s Vans Warped Tour.

Newly recharged with the addition of LaPlante, Bradley and cohorts John Ganey (guitar/programming), Mike “Rickshaw” Martin (bass) and Mikey Montgomery (drums) are set to keep their fans guessing with “Late For Nothing”. While the band’s signature, avant-garde style is well intact on the new album; their style has progressed immensely. By far their boldest and most accessible release to date, “Late For Nothing” rips and roars with blunt force intensity, incorporating their brain joggling breakdowns with a unique blend of electronics, jazzed-out time signatures and break neck riffage.

“The entire album came together as a result of us wanting to do something different,” affirms Bradley. “We didn’t want to make another weird IWRESTLEDABEARONCE album or whatever people were expecting. We set out to make something different and better than anything we’ve ever released. It’s a more evolved version of the band. We explored new styles and genres as well — especially in terms of the more spacey, epic, and beautiful parts. It’s got the most melodic moments of our career as well as the heaviest.”

Featuring the schizophrenic first single “Thunder Chunky”, “Late For Nothing” scales the summit of heavy rock/metal with twelve teeth gnashing tracks that find a happy medium between crushing metal and beautifully orchestrated melody. The album’s opener, “Thunder Chunky”, sets the tone for the album as they slash their way through songs like “Letters To Stallone” that showcases LaPlante‘s incredible balance of full throttle screams and melodic choruses, and “Carnage Asada”, which features a guest solo from the legendary Steve Vai.

“Late For Nothing” track listing:

01. Thunder Chunky
02. Letters To Stallone
03. Snake Charmer
04. Boat Paddle
05. Firebees
06. Mind The Gap
07. Carnage Asada
08. The Map
09. That’s A Horse Of A Different Color
10. I’d Buy That For A Dollar
11. Inside Job
12. It Don’t Make Me No Nevermind

Andy Rehfeldt is at it again (the same guy behind the Radio Disney remixes, Lamb of God jazz remixes, and a whole ton of other stuff), this time creating a little bit of an Iron-Maiden-meets-some-breakdowns version of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie.”

Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison’s new band Scar The Martyr played their first ever US show in New York last weekend, and a fan-filmed video from the gig has been thrown online.

Have a watch below:

You can also hear a brand new track from the band, Blood Host, in all its HD glory. Blood Host is taken from the band’s debut effort, it out September 30, and features Kris Norris, Kyle Konkiel, Henry Derek, Jed Simon and, of course, Joey Jordison. Listen to it right freakin’ now!

“It’s very coincidental that Blood Host is our first track and video because it was the first song I wrote for this project when it was nothing but a mere idea at best,” says our Joey. “Songs of course followed, and molded into an overall feel, concept and now a full length album. Blood Host has it all, hypnotic riffs, soaring choruses, pummeling breakdowns and the lyrics are infectious in every sense. We are very proud of the track and it pretty much lets you know where we are coming from musically and what we are all about live. Scar the Martyr up close and personal.”
