U.K.’s Metal Hammer magazine recently asked guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy of Florida metallers TRIVIUM to give us his thoughts on the state of metal in 2013. As ever, his answer was an interesting one. Check out the clip below.

“The state of metal in 2013… It’s in a great place and it’s also in a bad place,” Heafy began. “I think the fact that there is so much… I guess to each his own, and I always talk about being acceptant of all styles of life and all genres of music — I mean, you can learn something from everything — there is a lot of manufactured nonsense out there.

“For me, when I think of hardcore and I think of metal and I think of bands that I love from those genres… I don’t know. In my head, I know what they should sound like. And I can see what these bands are all copycatting off each other’s copycatting and not quite making anything original and not making anything of their own; they just keep copying a form of a copy.

“I know I’ve been looking for that young, new metal band. Where are the kids that are picking up a guitar, saying, ‘Hey, I wanna be like IRON MAIDEN,’ ‘Hey, I wanna be like METALLICA.’ Instead it’s bands that are putting weird dance music in with heavy music. Which is fine — I guess they’re doing something that kids love — but for me, as a metal fan, I’m missing out on where are the young kids picking up a guitar and starting metal bands. I guess there are a few last hopes out there — there are some really incredible bands that are doing some really incredible things. The fact that METALLICA and IRON MAIDEN are bigger than ever is a really, really great thing.

“We, as fans of metal, need to not just look at it as a thing to get turned on to casually — it’s a lifestyle; it’s far beyond just something that we casually listen to.

“I think that metal fans and metal bands need to support each other and band together and help bring each other further and bring each other upwards versus trying to drag each other down. I’m not saying that’s a common feature and that’s what’s happening now, but I definitely don’t see enough of a brotherhood, of people helping each other — bands helping each other go up, fans supporting all bands because they’re in the genre they love. I think we need more of that. And we need more kids to start playing metal again.”

TRIVIUM‘s new album, “Vengeance Falls”, will be released on October 15 via Roadrunner Records. Produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE), the follow-up to 2011’s “In Waves” is available for pre-order at Trivium.org. The first single, “Strife”, is available as an instant download with all pre-orders.

TRIVIUM‘s “Strife” video can be seen below. The clip was filmed in July at Studio One in Orlando and was directed by Ramon Boutviseth, who has previously worked with NONPOINT, DARKEST HOUR, INCUBUS and ALL THAT REMAINS, among others. Check out photos from the video shoot at this location.

That iconic style of Southern hardcore-laced sludge has finally made its way north of the border, and I do not mean the Mason-Dixon line. Toronto is a major global cultural center, so no surprise that they're in tune with what's going in every Dixie backwash throughout the Deep South. Nonetheless, it's always a bit eye …

Belgian progressive hardcore mentalists BEAR have signed a deal with up-and-coming U.K. label Basick Records. The band’s new album, “Noumenon”, will be released in October.

Check out an album teaser below.

Mixing extreme chaos with dazzling technical flair is the four-piece’s forte, and Basick boss Nathan Barley Phillips was compelled to sign them after witnessing their off-the-scale live show at last year’s Euroblast festival.

Barley comments: “I had the misfortune of a near-death experience when I chanced upon BEAR playing at a small venue in Germany last year… It’s not often that I genuinely fear for my own safety when watching a band, but experiencing BEAR‘s live show is about as close to armageddon as it gets. I’m thrilled to welcome them to Basick.”

Adds BEAR: “We are insanely stoked to announce that BEAR is now an offical member of the Basick Records family: Effective Immediately!!! Joining their already immpressive roster is a dream come true and we can’t wait to drop our next beast of a record everywhere.”

BEAR is confirmed for Eierfest in Belgium on August 23 as well as another appearance at Euroblast festival in Germany on October 11, and with tour announcements in the pipeline, expect a stage near you to be decimated very soon.
