Brute Forcz is a kick ass heavy metal band from Los Angeles, CA. The band was formed in 2010 after ex professional wrestlers Slammer and Jammer decided they wanted to make heavy metal music in the style of Motorhead, Judas Priest, AC/DC and W.A.S.P. The power trio began performing in Los Angeles in the Summer of 2010. They immediately gained attention and a growing fan base opening for bands such as WASP, LA Guns, Loudness, Michael Schenker Group, Joey Bella Donna (Anthrax), Y&T, Steel Panther, George Lynch and many more. They then caught the attention of legendary producers Bob Kulick and Brett Chassen. The band recorded their debut album at Office Studios and features 10 songs that kick major ass. Their music has received huge amounts of press and exposure online within the metal community.

After spending the last few years dealing with Injuries, surgeries, bad finances, departures, and even death, Brute Forcz is back with a new 4 song EP. The EP is self titled, ‘Brute Forcz’, and features Rowan Robertson (Ex-Dio), on guitar and was engineered and produced by legendary producer Bill Metoyer (Metal Blade A & R, Slayer to name a few) and Skull Seven Productions. As the band is preparing to play and have their music played across the world, there is no doubt it will be “KICK ASS HEAVY METAL.”

Hardcore/metal quintet Black Coast have revealed the video for their latest single ‘Crows Of The North’, the third to be taken from their debut EP of the same name. Of the song, vocalist Charlie Hewitt explains:

“‘Crows Of The North’ is probably the most positively messaged song on the EP. I speak about freedom of expression and literally having the guts to do and say what you want within this society, you shouldn’t have think a certain way just because you’re told to. I write from personal experiences and honesty, that’s where I draw my inspiration.”

The video has launched ahead of the band’s tour dates with Grains in June and Griever in July.

Save The Clock Tower’s are releasing the second single from their new record, ‘The Familiar // The Decay’  due for release the 1st July 2016. The album ‘The Familar // The Decay’ was produced by Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, Born of Osiris) and will see its release worldwide through Bullet Tooth Records.

Vocalist Luke Vaessen is elated to be putting the record out. “It’s an amazing feeling to be bringing out a record we are all 100% happy with. The Familiar//The Decay isn’t just a collection of songs pushed together, it’s a completely story driven album played out over two acts. It is something that we feel is an experience.”

Gathering influence from across punk, hardcore, metalcore and rock genres, Save The Clock Tower re-laid the foundation of their band with a mission to be meaningful as well as aggressive. The band has worked tirelessly to improve themselves and develop a very refined and professional sound that has impressed fans and critics from across Australia and brought them attention from the USA and beyond.

Sweden’s Despite has revealed a new music video for ‘As You Bleed’. The video was directed by Despite vocalist Peter Tuthill and filmed in their hometown of Gothenburg. ‘As You Bleed’ is the first single from their upcoming album, Synergi, which will be released worldwide via Eclipse Records on 22nd July 2016. Synergi contains thirteen powerful songs of progressive, melodic death metal produced by Oscar Nilsson (Engel) at Crehate Studios.

“I’m not big on sports myself, but mixed martial arts is one of the few I genuinely like to watch,” states vocalist Peter Tuthill. “‘As You Bleed’ was actually inspired by a UFC match I was watching one night. I can’t relate to violence, and it’s not how I see solving any problems, but as long as it’s inside an octagon, I’m all for it.” Despite features three guitarists, each playing technically-crushing riffs on eight-stringed Schecter guitars tuned a full octave below standard guitar tuning (drop-e).

Vocalist Peter Tuthill comments on the album as a whole, “Synergi touches many subjects that we feel need more attention in this harsh world that we inhabit. Every song has a meaning, and they’re all pieces of the big jigsaw puzzle, so to speak. The title Synergi isn’t just the Swedish spelling for the English counterpart Synergy. Synergi puts the self, the “I” in the bigger picture. We chose to do this to signify that every single individual on this planet is a cog in the greater machinery. For change to happen, we all need to start thinking along the same lines, without borders. There’s no racial divides, no genders; there’s only humanity. We need to start taking care of our world, ourselves, and the other species we live alongside, before it all goes BOOM.”

Celeb Car Crash’s new video ‘Let Me In’ is the first single taken from the upcoming new album ‘People Are The Best Show’ that will be released at the beginning of september through Sliptrick Records.

After the successful tour ¡Mucha Lucha! which led them to share the Red Bull Tour Bus with Lacuna Coil and the fundamental Virgin Radio’s support for ‘Because I’m Sad’ Celeb Car Crash are ready to face a series of gigs in Italy this summer, continuing with a European tour in September supporting the new album release. ‘Let Me In’ is the irresponsible attempt to be part at all costs of another person’s life, no matter if you are moved by noble sentiments, the result is always a tough series of consequences in a sick relationship between victim and executioner.

UK alternative rock juggernaut Headzero formed in 2015, delivering an original groove laden, high intensity, soul empowering brand of heavy rock. Unapologetically addressing the fall and rise of the human condition with a blistering, textured sonic assault influenced by Incubus, Soil and Soundgarden. Their new video is title track, from our debut EP, ‘Save The Fallen’ 

Midlands based Temple Of Lies first came to light in 2010, honing their skills on the road and blitzing venues up and down the country with their brutal sound. Overcoming a couple of line up changes early on in the band’s existence, they’ve now consolidated their hugely talented line up and took the decision to rework a few of the tracks from their debut album ‘Monumental’ and put them onto ‘From Sand’, to reflect the far heavier, more mature sound they now have.

With ‘From Sand’, they’ve released an album that’s a bit of a monster, a huge slab of raw, rasping stoner/doom styled heavy rock, urged relentlessly onward by vocalist Si Shaw’s roar. There are no punches pulled, no slick tricks here just honest, full on & fabulous bruising tracks belted out in their own inimitable style!

The band’s highly energetic live show delivers both musically and visually, entertaining audiences wherever they play and they are first and foremost a live band at heart, always will be. Temple Of Lies have recently supported the likes of XII Boar, Kyrbgrinder, Stormbringer, One Machine and their profile is growing fast so you’re going to be seeing a lot more of these guys!

Pillars, are a five piece melodic post hardcore band from south west England. Formed in 2012 through similar music taste, they have progressed their sound into something not quite like any other, combining heavy beatdowns with melodic chorus’ and throwing in some solo’s to form a concoction that leaves you wanting more.

In October 2013 they released their debut album ‘Sinners’ and the reaction was incredible, within the first week of its release the album had over 100 downloads! Pillars are proud to have shared the stage with such acts as Bleed From Within, TRC, Napoleon,Tides of man and many more. Their new EP is in its final mastering stages, this is the first song released from it.
