Hailing from Montreal, Canada, metal band Demise Of The Crown have gained a sizable fanbase in just the last couple years.

We’re excited to be premiering the video for the track “Sparks Fly”. Give it a watch below, and if you like what you hear (you definitely will), give the entire new record a spin as well.

TNF Video Premiere: Red Cain – “Juliet”

If you’re a prog fan, you’ve come to the right place today. Somewhere between the grandiosity of power metal and more progressive-leaning metal (think: Kamelot, Symphony X) lies Canada’s Red Cain. The band’s debut full-length, Kindred: Act I, dropped on Sliptrick Records recently, and was hailed by Dead Rhetoric as no less than a record that holds “multi-genre appeal”. Impressive stuff overall if you’re into what some of these bands are doing nowadays, and even more impressive for Red Cain considering it’s the band’s debut full-length.

We’re excited to be premiering the band’s new video for “Juliet” today, as well. The video for the single, which notably features Daniel Louden of Benevolent Like Quietus, can be seen below. This is the kind of progressive // power metal that’s intelligently written and performed, with plenty of accessibility for those who enjoy the more melodic side of things as well.

Premiere: The Stygian Complex raises the bar with their EP “Tartarus” – Listen!

North Carolina up and comers The Stygian Complex has recently their heavily anticipated new EP titled “Tartarus”, and trust us, it’s a heavy one. The band employed Kascade Mixing & Mastering (Bound In Fear, Distant, Exorcised Gods, Defilement) to mix and master the 4 track EP. Tartarus delivers non-stop energy with brute force. Although the EP only features 4 tracks – each track is crafted in their own image, each having something that leaves a unique footprint. The Stygian Complex made their appearance in the North Carolina deathcore scene in 2018, ever since the band has released two EPs. Their debut EP, which was respectively self-titled, released in 2019, beginning their journey. Fast forward to 2020 The Stygian Complex released the next chapter in their musical careers, and one for the books may I add. Tartarus hasn’t left my cars CD player since I’ve received, and I don’t see it coming out soon. If you like deathcore with ear piercing highs, bass shaking breakdowns, and the punch of Godzilla, you’ll want to get your band on this EP.
