Eyehategod Release New Song: “Fake What’s Yours”

Eyehategod, who recently announced their first new album in seven years, A History of Nomadic Behavior (March 12, Century Media Records), have debuted a second single from the twelve song album, releasing “Fake What’s Yours” with an accompanying visualizer (https://youtu.be/eQa5o9Q9Z7k). “’Fake What's Yours’ is the second single from our new album, A History of Nomadic Behavior, and it's a pure uncut chunk of anti-authoritarian preach-speak set to a condescending guitar riff that could only be born from the dirty streets of New Orleans, says Mike IX Williams. “We can't wait for everyone to hear the full record, but for now, put on your gas masks, lock your doors, stay home and LISTEN!” News of the new album and the debut of the eerily prescient first single, “High Risk Trigger”...

Brazil’s Rage In My Eyes Put A New Spin On Heavy Metal Classic “Aces High”

The Iron Maiden classic “Aces High” has been reworked by Rage In My Eyes - their tribute to the heavy metal legends who they were an opening act for in Porto Alegre, Brazil in October 2019. Their imagining of the classic is melodic, lightly proggy, and a proper homage to one of the most loved songs in metal history. The illustrious Bruce Dickinson has one of the most recognizable voices in the genre and it’s rare that a band can do it justice - but Rage In My Eyes’ vocalist Jonathas Pozo nails the wide range and theatrics that come through the music. They do add a creative spin, adding reverb and more gang vocals to the chorus. Rage In My Eyes released their first album “Ice Cell” under that name in 2019, the first offering...

Conjuring images of retro sci-fi horror, the video for the sultry, doom metal-inspired track, entitled "Not Of This Earth", compliments the words of the song's extra-terrestrial crooner. Hungry for blood to revitalize his dying planet – he’s not of this earth!

Thunder Release New Single ‘Going To Sin City’

On the song, guitarist and songwriter Luke Morley says: ‘It's based on the first time Danny and I went to LA in the late-80s. We were used to the music scene around Soho, and thought we were cool. In LA I felt like I was the bloke who’d come to fix the plumbing. Before bands like Guns N’ Roses rock’n’roll was pretty much denim and leather in Britain....

ACCEPT Release New Single “Zombie Apocalypse”! Listen Now!

ACCEPT could have hardly chosen a more fitting title for their new upcoming masterpiece - Too Mean To Die.
