Honest Crooks Release New Single ‘No Rest’ Announce Signing To EVP Recordings

Hellsworth’s Heaviest’ are today taking it to the world! Honest Crooks, the four-piece crew out of Tamworth NSW/Canberra ACT, are announcing that they have signed to EVP Recordings under Lochlan Watt – and they have a new single ‘No Rest’ to offer. The brutally heavy new single will be unleashed this Friday 13th March, and tickets are now on sale for their ‘No Rest for the Pitters’ tour dates in April, celebrating the release of the single. It’s available at: https://evp-recordings.lnk.to/honestcrooksnorest

Having just demolished stages and getting up close and real personal with fans at both Unify Gathering and Invasion Fest 2020 and selling out their last three headline shows, ‘Hellsworth’s Heaviest’ are keeping the momentum rolling on 2020 with this signing, new material and tour (marking their 10th lap around Australia!).

The new single ‘No Rest’ was Produced, Mixed and Mastered by Elliott Gallart @ Chameleon Sound and the stark video was shot and edited by Colin Jeffs @ Ten Of Swords Media Collective. Brodie Graham, vocalist for Honest Crooks, says that “No Rest is a song for the people that think we don’t deserve to be given the opportunities we receive. We have sacrificed careers, relationships and our own mental and physical health to be where we are today. To discredit that is a personal attack. No Rest is a story about hard work, perseverance and reigning on top but also a story of how jealousy and disrespect will only hold you back.

With their worldwide signing to EVP Recordings, Honest Crooks join a roster that provides an Australian home to such acts as DisentombPsycropticBehemoth and more.

TOOMS Set To Relase New Single ‘Stampede’ This Friday The 13th

Hailing from Limerick City, TOOMS were born out of several years of jamming together in Limerick School of Art and Design. Gelling together musically and drawing from a myriad influences, the world’s first Slippery Metal band plays a filthy, amorphous blend of sludge metal and hardcore punk.

Shortly after the release of the 2018 “uhm” EP, TOOMS signed to Cursed Monk records and began playing a slew of shows around the country before embarking on the writing and recording of their upcoming full length debut album. 

U T A 

The first release from their forthcoming album is coming on Friday the 13th, titled ‘Spampede’.

In short, it’s over six minutes of brilliance. This band really have their own sound in many regards and on paper their mix of Sludge, Crust/Punk and a touch of grindcore shouldn’t work.
It does though and it works to devastatingly good effect here!

There’s a breakdown in this song and if it doesn’t get your head going? You probably don’t like metal. It’s contagious and natural in its occurrence…

All in all, if this track is anything to go by we have one of the best Irish albums of the year incoming!

Deathbeds Release New Single ‘Enough Isn’t Enough’ From LP Sinner Out March 13th

Canberra’s Deathbeds have released the next cut from their forthcoming concept album ‘Sinner’ – a new single that continues the themes surrounding the Seven Deadly Sins. The new track, called “Enough Isn’t Enough” represents the ‘Gluttony’ sin. The new single was released on Friday February 28th and available on all streaming outlets/digital platforms at http://ffm.to/deathbeds_EIE.

The upcoming album is a concept record, taking its theme from the Seven Deadly Sins. The overarching storyline follows a priest abusing the sins in order of Pride, Greed, Gluttony, Sloth, Lust, Wrath and Envy, with the final track representing the Priest’s journey ending in Heresy.

“Enough Isn’t Enough” narrates the next phase in the story with gluttony, and tells the tale of the priests all-consuming power over the people. Where the first single “What’s Yours Is Mine and What’s Mine Is Mine” depicted greed and the antagonists need to take from the people, this second single builds on that concept as if he’s now figuratively consuming his subjects. Sonically the track is the heaviest on the album as it flaunts a heavy hitting driving force throughout, broken in parts by dynamic contrasts from walls of sound to complete silence to Kit Samin’s haunting vocals accompanied by a complementary piano melody.

The new album will be released Friday 13 March and can be pre-ordered at http://deathbeds.lnk.to/sinner, distributed through Collision Course Records. The album was mixed and mastered by Scottie Simpson (PolarisAlpha WolfGravemind) and tracked at Colossal Tracks Studios (She Cries WolfDays Like These).

Shrapnel Announce New Album Palace For The Insane

UK thrashers SHRAPNEL will release their third full length album Palace For The Insane on 15th May via Candlelight Records

Palace For The Insane lives up to its title with heroic ferocity, combining a relentless barrage of insane riffs, shredding leads, pounding rhythms, and savage vocals. SHRAPNEL‘s trademark extreme aggression remains a fundamental part of their sound, but this time around they exhibit vastly more dynamism, versatility and newly-refined songwriting skills.

“We wanted to step out of our comfort zone a little this time round”, says lead guitarist Nathan Sadd. “We knew we could pound out 10 relentless thrash songs fairly easily, but we wanted the challenge of writing a really memorable, diverse record. We wanted to write songs. I think we achieved that. The album definitely contains the most memorable and hooky stuff we’ve ever written, while still being thrashy and brutal.” Palace For The Insane marks SHRAPNEL‘s first recorded venture as a four-piece. Their first album recorded in collaboration with Samuel Turbitt of Ritual Sound Studios, it feels like a wholesale creative rebirth, with the voracious energy of a debut.

While taking on complex subject matters, the album is not shy in paying homage to SHRAPNEL’s old-school thrash roots. Those more partial to the faster side of this purest form of thrash will be floored by the sheer speed and technical wizardry of songs ‘Bury Me Alive’, ‘The Mace’, and ‘Infernal Choir’This is definitely a new and improved SHRAPNEL, but necks are still going to get utterly wrecked.

 “We might be experimenting a little more these days, but we never turn our back on our absolute love for thrash. This one shreds harder, its angrier, and at times, it’s grittier. It was fueled by an enormous amount of frustration and anger, and a ton of fun too,” concludes Nathan. “Thrash is in our blood. And that side of us is going nowhere.”

Formed in 2009, SHRAPNEL have been on a campaign of destruction ever since. From the blistering underground EP No Saviours through to the 10th anniversary release in 2019, Decade of Decimation, the band has grown from strength to strength with no intention of slowing down.

Released on 15th May via Candlelight Records, preorders are now available here:https://shrapnel.lnk.to/PalaceForTheInsane

zhOra Released New Video/Single Hellfire From Their Forthcoming LP Mortals

zhOra have today dropped a new video/single Hellfire which is taken from their forthcoming album Mortals out March 27th via Hostile Media.

I’m a fan of this band for many years now and on the strength of the two tracks they have dropped as of now to include the previously released Coke Vulture (which we will also post here) this is shaping up to be their best work to date without any shadow of doubt.
I like their previous works, but this is another level. It’s horrible in the best possible way and viciously heavy.

zhOra are back to what they do best. So damned heavy it’s almost showing off…
Get Hellfire into you!

PRE-ORDER “MORTALS”: https://zhora1.bigcartel.com/

Album out 27.03.20 via Hostile Media
Recorded, mixed & mastered by Aidan Cunningham at BlueBird Studios, Kildare, Ireland.

UNI/VS Release New Single/Video Hellhound

UNI/VS Release New Single/Video Hellhound

Brisbane’s UNI/VS hit the ground running in 2017 and have wasted no time between solidifying themselves as ones to watch not only in Brisbane, but the Australian heavy scene. Today the melodic hardcore trio are offering up “Hellhound” as their first drop of 2020 and are backing it up with an accompanying Hellhound East Coast Tour to boot!

Hellhound was produced, mixed & mastered by Gareth Hargraves (Young LionsThe ComfortThe Brave) and features the thundering heavies and soaring melodic intervals that UNI/VS master. The single was inspired by the adverse effects technology and the digital age is having on the human race. On one hand being more connected then ever but on the other, that same power is being used to divide and outrage. Vocalist Scott Willis explains that “We are constantly being fed information that may have no real truth or a warped perspective being derived from algorithms that keep us coming back for more.

The music clip was filmed, directed and edited by Dan Ramsay Visuals and depicts a dystopian-style setting in which the protagonist flits between a digital world and the real world, showing the separation between the two. A lonely and cold reality exists up against the action packed, sensory overloaded virtual scenes of the digital age.
