Mexican rock group Inferzenal has released their video for their new song “Until I Drown” and right from the gates it was a song I added to my playlists to enjoy constantly. Inferzenal really took their bar higher with this song and left me wanting more. Inferzenal has came a far way since their release of “This Moment” in 2015. The band is currently signed with Legend Recordings and this is their first official release under the label. Inferzenal was due to perform at this years South By Southwestfestival this year but sadly Covid-19 has cancelled 2020.
The band’s visually pleasing music video fittingly goes well with the atmosphere and lyrics to Until I Drown. The video plays really great with colors and unique concepts.
Once upon a time, metalcore band Underoath were an outfit trying to gain traction in the underground. While 2002’s The Changing Of Times shed many of their previous black and even death metal influences for something much more accessible, the departure of vocalist Dallas Taylor certainly left a void for the young band. Luckily, Spencer Chamberlain joined shortly after, and the rest is history.
However, a new demo version of “Reinventing Your Exit” from 2003 has surfaced, and notably, it features the vocals of Dallas Taylor – shortly before the band parted ways (and Taylor formed Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster). Entitled “Heatherwood”, the demo surfaced online just this morning, so it’s interesting to compare the vocalists – who were both quite young at the time. Also, the band will be performing this song – and others – on a livestream tonight. They’re Only Chasing Safety in full. Don’t miss out.
On the heels of the current single “The Day I Tried To Live” moving up the radio charts, Sevendust are releasing Blood & Stone, their 13th studio album, out this fall. With a career full of Gold records, a dozen albums, and a devoted fanbase, it’s not like Sevendust have much left to prove – but the hard-working band will inevitably deliver anyway. The new album is scheduled for release on October 23rd via Rise Records (the second for the band on the label). The latest release also marks a return for the band with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Alter Bridge; Tremonti; Slash; and others.
It’s not particularly news, but your favorite bands and musicians almost certainly play heaps of video games. From Trivium’s Matt Heafy livestreaming Fortnite to Mike Shinoda livestreaming just about every single day, it’s almost a given that some broke musician, somewhere, is passing the time fragging n00bs on COD or revenge killing some superpowered Pokemon on Pokemon Showdown. Thanks, Smogon!
Anyway, we’re stoked to bring you another edition of our series The Video Games That Changed My Life, where a musicians sits down with us to discuss some of the most important video games that have influenced their life. Simple, really, but you can easily get a good glimpse at a person’s personality when hearing about what games they played growing up. This time, we’ve got Dave Ben Lee from Aussie hard rock trio Accidental President joining us. The band recently released a video for their song “Last Breath” (which you can watch below), off their debut full-length which released at the beginning of July. Merging goth, hard rock, and metal influences, this is a band to put on your radar, and fast.
