THIS IS HELL Announces Details For Their Upcoming Album ‘Black Mass’

LONG ISLAND, NY – Long Island’s veteran hardcore metal group, This Is Hell, has announced that its fourth studio album, Black Mass, will see an October 11th release on Rise Records, confirming the identity of the mysterious website, AllRiseForTheBlackMass.com. The teaser site has seen a complete update, including a YouTube stream of the brand new track, “Black Mass.”

“The new album takes the crossover and metal influences from last album to much greater extremes and the end product was Black Mass, by far the heaviest and thrashiest songs we’ve written and recorded,” said guitarist, Rick Jimenez.

“Lyrically this album touches on issues we haven’t dove into before. Social injustice as a whole is a recurring theme. Persistence and empowerment are familiar themes with us that I’ve revisited, but with an even more aggressive outlook than before.”

Black Mass, the follow-up to the 2010 release, Weight of the World, was recorded earlier this summer at Killingsworth Studio in Valley Village, CA with producer, Tomas Costanza. 

“The artwork was done by Will Blood, an amazing English illustrator/artist that we’ve worked with on shirts and designs before,” added Jimenez. “The concept came from some lyrics and underlying themes from the album and Will really took the ball and ran with it. Whether someone takes the art at sheer superficial face value, or really absorbs the details and subtleties of it, it’s an extremely powerful piece of artwork. I feel the same way about the music and especially the lyrics on this new record.”
This Is Hell will hit the road next month for a North American tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid and The Chariot.
“We’re very excited for our upcoming tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid, and The Chariot,” said vocalist, Travis Reilly. “We’ve toured many times with Comeback Kid and we look forward to spending more time with them and meeting the other guys. It’s going to be great to play some new songs for a bunch of new faces.”

‘Like Moths To Flames’ Forced to Drop Off This Fall’s IGNITOUR, And Also Releases a Full-Length Album on Rise Records Set For Nov 8th

Like Moths To Flames – Real Talk via RISE RECORDS

Native Columbus, OH band Like Moths To Flames (Rise Records) have regrettably been forced to bow out of their run on this fall’s IGNITOUR which they were to begin on September 2nd. The band has released the following statement:

 “Due to the departure of our bass player, Aaron Douglas, combined with a delay in the studio completion due to Hurricane Irene, we regret to inform everyone that we will have to drop off the upcoming INGNITOUR with Ice Nine Kills and An Early Ending.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but without a solid lineup, we don’t want to disservice our fans in any capacity.  We are going to finish up at the studio, head home and prepare for our two upcoming fall tours: Close Your Eyes/The Color Morale tour and then Thrash and Burn.  We’re super stoked on how our record is turning out and can’t wait for you guys to hear it.  We’re working on a plan to release a few tracks prior to our November 8th release date”

Like Moths To Flames has also announced a change to the lineup in the wake of Douglas’ departure. Eli Ford (ex-My Ticket Home) has joined the band and will take on guitar duties while Aaron Evans will move from guitar to bass.

Slipknot confirms that they will be touring the U.S. in 2012

M. Shawn Crahan, A.K.A. Clown, has announced on Slipknot’s facebook page that they will be touring the U.S. come next year. Quote, “I also wanted to tell everyone straight from my mouth because you may have heard it already anyway, but Slipknot will be touring by next June in America only, but that does not mean things will not change and as they do I will along with others tell you our family first.

No album yet because it is to soon and there are no songs yet because the band needs to come together to write this next one. I can not wait to feel the ideas like choking on color. Everything happens for a reason, so be ready.”

Migrate Music Review: Winter Dust – Existence

Existence Cover Art


Marco Vezzaro (vocals, guitar)

Marco belloni (piano, synth)

Marco Lezzerini (bass)

Marco Macchini (drums)

Fabio Gallato (guitar)

We love hearing new music at Migrate Productions. No matter what genre, and no matter where it comes from…we have an open ear to what people bring to the table for us to listen to. So when this album was presented to me to check out, naturally I got excited.

Winter Dust is a post-hardcore band from Padova, Italy. They formed the band back in 2003, but broke up in 2008. It wasn’t until recently that they got back together with new members along with a new sense of direction to produce their latest E.P. titled Existence.

The E.P. is enjoyable to listen to, and  I really like the mixture of the piano and guitars. It gives their tracks some depth that not a lot of bands are willing to do these days. My personal favorite track on this 4 song E.P. is the self titled song Existence. Again, the piano mixed in with the guitars is what makes this track strong.

Also what is interesting is the vocals. For some reason when hear Vezzaro’s voice, I can’t help but think Polar Bear Club. (If you don’t know who they are…you are missing out.)

But the thing I like the most about this album is the fact that Winter Dust is distributing their E.P. for FREE. So all you have to do is click on the Download link on the player up there and add it to your music collection.
