Metal is a ever blossoming genre of music that spawns subgenres like tree branches. Some of those branches tend to stick while others get cut down. While often monotonous in nature, the beatdown side of hardcore and metalcore is one of those subgenres that has found itself a nice home in the metal community. The newly founded group that goes by the name Dead Low prove all too well that beatdown gets to hang with the big boys. Dead Low has released their crushing new song “Lifeless” and boy, does it come straight for your jugular. The new song comes complete with a fitting music video. The group have previously released another song titled “Detest”, and just has the new song their debut showed no mercy. These guys are building a good platform to stand-on, propelling the subgenre further. At the very least, you’ll want to spinkick objects in your living room.

Las Vegas, NV based rock band WICKED GARDEN has released the official music video for their new single, “Home, Too Far.” Written and directed by Dominick Muzio and Shawn Trojahn, the video for “Home, Too Far” was filmed by Stephy Hayward of Livewire Photography and edited by Nicholas Muzio at Die-Hearts Productions.
“This is a song about loss, and how you can never get back the time you have with someone once they are gone. And while the term “Home” refers to an afterlife or another plane of existence, it’s too far away for the people that have been left behind” – Dominick Muzio (Lead Singer/Guitarist)
“I was frustrated by not having written anything in a while. Then when I came up with this riff, I knew it had something. It was different from our other songs, but still sounded like us.” – Shawn Trojahn (Lead Guitarist)

This week, death metal band Six Feet Under released a single off their upcoming album, Nightmares Of The Decomposed. “Zodiac” is a slow-moving piece with very, VERY rough vocals from Chris Barnes, whose voice has gone through a lot the past few decades from fronting Cannibal Corpse to Six Feet Under. It was so provoking, that the video on Metal Blade’s YouTube channel has its comments disabled and sits at an alarming like/dislike ratio.
