All That Remains have shared another track off the album. The song, entitled ‘Louder’ ebbs and flows between moments of melodic, guitar driven riffs and heavy, head-banger bars, swelling to a full on pit-ready breakdown complete with a frenzied guitar solo. Vocalist Phil Labonte follows the flow of the track, perfectly switching from clean vocals to guttural howls and enhancing the songs message of standing your ground. You can feel his conviction in the lyrics, “The truth is loud no matter where you hide. Sleep walker, fear monger, I make the rules you ain’t got nothing on me.”
Legendary Swedish Death Metallers Sarcasm have released the official video for ‘Scars of a Land Forgotten’ a track from forthcoming Dark Descent album ‘Within the Sphere of Ethereal Mind’, which will be released April 28.
Following the unearthing of their first proper full-length, ‘Burial Dimensions’ (originally recorded in 1994 and officially released in 2016), the new long player is in a sense the payoff of a long, bumpy history that included demos, compilations, and an EP (Scattered Ashes in 2000). Indeed, it is the full realization of Sarcasm’s blackened Swedish Death Metal sound, yet with an identity all its own.

Joy In Motion are a brand new 4-piece straight out of the heart of Brisbane. A project borne out of Jake Solway’s desire to shift into something a little different from his previous act, heavy band Road to Ransome. Jake was drumming for that band – but always had a desire to front a band as the vocalist.
Today they (Jake Solway – Vocals, Patrick Heaton – Bass, Carly Sinn – Drums and Dylan Cottee – Guitar) release their very first taste of Joy In Motion, ahead of their debut EP release, which drops on Friday May 26th. Pre-Orders are now live at their Big Cartel and Band Camp sites.
The straight-up pop rock/alt rock sound comes from Jake growing up listening to bands like Fall Out Boy, Blink 182 and Sum 41 and the results are obvious. Clean tones, beautiful vocals and sing a long vocals for days means that Joy In Motion will be hard to shake out of your head.

New UK rock four-piece Fainites released their debut single ‘Geraldine’ on Monday 17th April. The storming piece of alternative rock welds chunky guitar riffs to yearning vocals and pounding drums, and is the lead track from the band’s debut Battle Scars EP (set for release on the same day).
Formed just a year ago, Fainites have wasted no time in establishing themselves on the fertile South Coast rock scene. Their debut gig in October was at the legendary Joiners in Southampton, where they were invited to support rising rockers Blackfoxxes. A sold-out December hometown show in Portsmouth followed, and their 2017 started with a bang with a stellar performance at Icebreaker festival in February.
Fainites create anthemic, intelligent and hardcore-tinged alternative rock that’s not afraid to tackle unusual subject matter. “Geraldine was inspired by the true story of Geraldine Largay, a woman who went missing in 2013 whilst on an Appalachian trail,” says frontman Chris Perrin. “She’d gotten lost and managed to survive 26 days alone in the wild before dying in her tent, surrounded by goodbye letters she had written for her loved ones. Her body wasn’t found for over 2 years. I don’t usually write songs from the perspective of other people’s lives, but Geraldine’s story really hit me. It’s not a stereotypical subject for a rock song, but I’d like to think the energy and melody is a fitting tribute to a woman who obviously had a real zest for life.”

The incorporation of modern cinematic film score elements mixed with progressive metal riffs and melodies will leave the listener breathless! Huge, sweeping, hard-hitting, and poignant, ‘Contingent’ is an epic post-apocalyptic conceptual piece inspired by current events, the human spirit to overcome struggle and diversity, and the brotherhood that lies there in. Produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica, Evergrey].
