If you like abrasive alt-rock that also dares to venture out of its comfort zone, UK art-punk band Civil Villains might be the band for you. Having just released their debut EP Snake Oil in November, the band have already made waves throughout the scene by playing shows with Bellevue Days, Poly-Math, and even Listener. While it can be hard to pin down their sound musically, rest assured that they love to RIFF.
We’re also stoked to be premiering the band’s new video for “Gargoyles” from the debut EP. Give it a watch below and get to know the rising band with a few Q&A questions, too.
In the 6 years since Abysmal Dawn last released a record, the death and extreme metal scenes have seen plenty of upstart younger bands emerge as well. Up and coming new acts like Fuming Mouth and Creeping Death, among others, have meshed elements of hardcore and death metal more than effectively. However, for purists that exist, Abysmal Dawn’s brand of death metal has always been at least tried and true.
That being said, their new song “Hedonist”, which arrives off the band’s first new album in 6 years and is due out in April on Season Of Mist, is awfully impressive. While the band’s previous releases have been at least relatively solid affairs, it’s possible their upcoming SOM debut might top all of their previous records. Based on this one song, anyway, their immediate future is bright. The present, though, means the band is releasing their first album in 6 years, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love good, solid, and traditional death metal at high tempos? Same.
Extreme metal band Fit For An Autopsy have had a meteoric last few album cycles. Seemingly gaining more traction and getting better with each subsequent record, last year’s The Sea Of Tragic Beasts saw the band’s sound expanding into further corners of the spectrum, with notable comparisons to the likes of Gojira running rampant as well. Of course, when you’re armed with a producer like Will Putney and a ridiculously talented set of musicians, everything seems so easy.
On the eve of their upcoming EU tour in support of Thy Art Is Murder, the band has now debuted an Austin Archey (Lorna Shore) directed video for the song “Warfare”. Check it out below – the band will also be supporting Thy Art Is Murder in North America very soon, too.
After teasing it weeks ago on social media, Paramore’s Hayley Williams has officially debuted the first song from her new solo project, simply titled, “Simmer”. The song is the first batch of new music Williams has released since Paramore’s After Laughter in 2017.
