Migrate Music Review: Voice Of Ruin

Voice of Ruin is a metalcore/ deathcore band from Geneva, Switzerland. Earlier this year they released their debut, self titled LP on Heimathome Records. Upon first listening I noticed a number of things: the record is fast, it’s fairly intense, there are lots of hammer-ons and pull-offs, lots of chugs and lots of bass drops. Being that these things are the quintessential elements of deathcore, we then have to see if these elements are utilized in a way that makes the album stand out as a cohesive work and that it brings something to the table that is worth listening to. And, I think that the album definitely does just that. It may use a lot of the older elements of deathcore to the table, but it mixes them with elements more in line with metalcore and brings with it a certain level of melody and groove that can be missing in most contemporary deathcore. I think fans of both genres could enjoy this band and that the musicians are definitely talented. I hope to hear new stuff from them in the future and I’m excited to see how they will grow as musicians. For fans of Despised Icon, Suicide Silence, etc.

Migrate Music Review: Powerwolves – You Won’t Find Peace

You Won’t Find Peace, the debut full length from Powerwolves is a punch in the face from beginning to end. The music is fast and in your face, reminiscent of Pulling Teeth. Yet, through all the intensity it still contains a certain amount of melody. At times the album reminds me of The Esoteric, and at others it reminds me of Hate your Guts. Although the style of music is not exactly novel, fans of hardcore will find much enjoyment in this album. The entire album contains a certain amount of groove behind all of it, even when it slows down. You won’t be able to help but bob your head to songs like the title track, “You Won’t Find Peace”. Aside from that, there are lots of parts in the album that are reminiscent of old ‘circle pit’ hardcore punk. For fans of Pulling Teeth, The Hope Conspiracy, Hate Your Guts, Swampthing and whole slew of contemporary hardcore.

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.”
