Heliosaga’s debut release is finally ready!

BAND LOW-RESTowers In The Distance » to be released in August

Heliosaga is excited to announce the long awaited debut “Towers In The Distance” available August 22nd worldwide via digital and CD formats.

The anticipated album is rooted deep in European tradition, combining the best elements of power, symphonic, and gothic metal. Drawing comparisons from such bands as Xandria, Delain, and Leaves Eyes.

The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life.

ALBUM COVER LOW-RESTowers In The Distance” lyrics are deeply personal, and the primary themes revolve around the state of the world, mortality and the personal struggles that all encounter. Mixed by Michael Hansen (Phonomik, Chainfist) at Phon Studio and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios. Bass guitar tracks were recorded by Chad Novell (Fibonacci Sequence) and a guest guitar solo was performed by Gilbert Pot (Elegy).

Heliosaga was founded in 2010 by Damien Villarreal (keys/guitar) in San Antonio, Texas, soon after joined by Jordan Ames (drums). By September of 2010, the line-up was complete and the first practices were held. The ensuing year would see a five song demo, the first shows and various line-up changes. In 2012, Chelsea Knaack joined as lead vocalist and the band recorded the single “The Light of Ardor”, which was released in January 2013. Shortly before the recorded single was release, the band relocated to Minnesota and continued the writing process.

THE ZENITH PASSAGE: Los Angeles Technical Death Metallers Unleash Pre-Production Track

925Union Of Dissonance Tour Documentary Posted

Los Angeles technical death metallers, THE ZENITH PASSAGE, today unleash a new pre-production track entitled “Simulated Reality.” The maniacal new tune will appear on the follow-up to their critically adored Cosmic Dissonance EP which MetalSucks applauded, noting that, “This is just the way tech-death should be, where good songwriting is just as important as the doodily-doo. These tunes will kick you in the balls and tickle your anus with a feather. They’re fucking fantastic.”

Sample “Simulated Reality” as well as THE ZENITH PASSAGE’s hilarious near-half-hour Union of Dissonance West Coast tour documentary with Aegaeon, and guest appearances and performance from Archspire at THIS LOCATION.

It was in early 2012 that a small recording collaboration between two friends — Justin McKinney and Greg Hampton — began to coalesce into something that would prove to be well more than the sum of its parts. THE ZENITH PASSAGE may have come about from humble beginnings in a stuffy Los Angeles apartment, but the produce thereof is anything but humble. Even the earliest demo tracks delivered a relentless torrent of technical guitar work accompanied by a distinctly frenetic and brutal vocal delivery that has since become an unmistakable hallmark in a scene that is all too often the victim of stagnation. Far from being strictly a shredfest, TZP also incorporates a thematic backbone that draws inspiration from the chaotic and awesome destructive powers of our universe. Progressive interludes invoke a palpable sense of abstract dread and reverence for things beyond mortal comprehension. The atmosphere created clearly nods to inspiration drawn from the likes of Deeds of Flesh, Soreption, Fallujah, Severed Savior, and Aeon.

The project’s initial offerings generated enough buzz in social media circles alone to convince the duo to redouble their efforts in earnest, and to begin seeking out members to complete their lineup. The subsequent release of a proper EP in January 2013 entitled Cosmic Dissonance catapulted TZP’s recognition to previously unprecedented heights, greatly broadening their fan base, and catching the attention and admiration of some of California’s foremost metal musicians. Not long thereafter, it was announced that Rob Maramonte (ex-Fallujah) would also be stepping in to lend his talents and fill the role of second guitarist and persistent scouting over the following months precipitated the addition of drummer Luis Matinez (Oblivion) into the mix.

With the onset of all these new developments, and the lineup nearing completion, it seemed only natural to take the next step and join the ranks of those by whom they had been so heavily influenced. Thus, in the summer of 2013, TZP had the honor of signing on with Unique Leader Records for a multi-album deal. The stage is currently set for TZP to secure their foothold in topmost reaches of the metal pantheon, and they are hard at work churning out new content for their debut full-length. Rest assured, this marks only the beginning.

THE ZENITH PASSAGE will record their debut full-length later this year for an early 2015 release via Unique Leader Records. Further details to be announced in the coming months.

Legendary thrash metal band EXODUS have revealed the never-before-seen album art for their upcoming album, Blood In, Blood Out, hitting retail and digital outlets this fall via Nuclear Blast. The album art was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including EXODUS’ Let There Be Blood (2008).

The concept for the art was impressively envisaged by Olofsson based on the album title alone, as Gary Holt explains: “I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”

Blood In, Blood Out is EXODUS’ tenth studio album and marks the band’s first release with returning vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo Of The Damned.

Tickets are on sale now via the links on the official EXODUS Facebook page.

Due to the overwhelmingly demand, EXODUS is making their VIP Experience packages available for the entire tour via SLOtix.com. Fans are encouraged to get them as soon as possible, as VIP package sales will close seven days prior to each show day.

For fans who have already purchased their show ticket and would like to be part of the EXODUS VIP Experience, contact SLO Customer Service at 888-756-4849 or customerservice@slotix.com.

Formed in 1980, the band’s original members included Tom Hunting on drums, Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Tim Agnello on guitars, and Carlton Melson on bass. With a line-up that has evolved throughout the years, the current incarnation of EXODUS charges into the future with returning frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza on vocals, Gary Holt and Lee Altus on guitars, Tom Hunting on drums, and Jack Gibson on bass. In 2014, EXODUS closed the first half of the year with stellar performances at Kirk Hammett’s Fear FestEvil and Rock On The Range, as well as a groundbreaking tour with fellow thrash legends Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies. To date, EXODUS has released nine studio albums, two live albums, and one compilation. Their most recent release, Exhibit B: The Human Condition, debuted in the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart in 2010. EXODUS will release a new Andy Sneap-produced full-length album this fall via Nuclear Blast.

FALLUJAH: First Week Chart Numbers Revealed; Summer Slaughter March Continues

640The Flesh Prevails, the new full-length behemoth from atmospheric death metal faction, FALLUJAH, debuted at #115 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, #39 on Billboard’s Rock chart, #15 on the Hard Rock chart and #24 on the Independent chart upon its first week of release. Additionally, the album landed at an astounding #2 on the Heatseekers chart!

784Boasting guest appearances from guitarist Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Necrophagist) and the chilling voice of Roniit Alkayam present throughout the album, The Flesh Prevails is a true master work of progressively tinged, otherworldly death metal that continues to floor fans and critics globally. “Their space is the backdrop for a parade of awesome celestial events,” describes Decibel Magazine, furthering that, “Harmonized death metal riffing and fleet leads twirl around each other like planets in orbital ballet. Dexterous blasting sends comets hurtling all over the place. Stars collapse and explode within the universe of synthetics that swaddle each song. It’s a huge sonic palette that FALLUJAH uses, all harnessed perfectly by tech-death mixmaster Zack Ohren.” Adds MetalSucks in a perfect 5/5 rating, “It’s an unabashed, psychotic, unregulated experiment of the wanton fusion of two separate strains of noise. It succeeds via the best bits of both and creating something uniquely greater than a simple summation. It animates the inorganic. It is architectural artwork. And with all its impressiveness, it feels true and pinpointed and ecstatic.”

If you missed it, sample “Levitation,” streaming at A.V. Club at THIS LOCATION, “Carved From Stone” at Lambgoat at THIS LOCATION as well as “Sapphire,” courtesy of MetalSucks, at THIS LOCATION.

FALLUJAH is currently embarked on a US live takeover as part of this year’s crushing Summer Slaughter Tour alongside Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Goatwhore and more. Additionally, the band will take part in the Summer Slaughter Canada Club Tour 2014.

During a tour around the states to Marlyand Death Fest, just after recording, we fell upon the ears of the label we will be releasing with, Metal Blade, we couldn’t be happier with this new relationship and plan on continuing to go hard and bust as many fucking ear drums as possible.

2143Radio Black’s TJ Courtney is living proof that taking a risk pays off.” - Pure Volume

Between Courtney’s gruff vocals and Hawkins’ steady drumming, the track has an emotional intensity akin to the Foo’s own ‘Times Like These.’ – Consequence of Sound

Grunge-rock three-piece, Radio Black has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund recording for the rest of their debut album, at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606. The band recently premiered one of the three songs already recorded at the famed workspace, “Run Away,” featuring Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters on drums, as well as an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at their time in the famed studio, over at Consequence of Sound, here: http://bit.ly/TOWDgd.

Recorded and produced by the legendary John “Lou” Lousteau, Fireball Ministry front-man and “Sound City” documentary producer Jim Rota, and Brad Smith of Blind Melon, Radio Black’s upcoming LP will also feature collaborations with Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne), Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction), and Mick Murphy (My Ruin, Chevy Metal). For more information or to pledge a contribution, please visit the kickstarter campaign here: http://kck.st/Wd9muU

The band hopes to raise $12,000 to go back to the studio where they recorded the first 3 songs of their debut album, using the Sound City Neve 8028 analog mixing console, previously graced by the likes of Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fleetwood Mac, Paul McCartney and of course, the Foo Fighters. Incentives range from digital MP3 downloads, to personalized thank you videos, and fans can even pledge to receive executive producer credits on the album.

Radio Black was formed in early 2014. Lead singer/guitarist TJ Courtney fused his previous solo project with a melodic mixture of grunge and 90s inspired alternative rock. Bringing in drummer Derek Geldhill, founding member of Smile Empty Soul, and bassist Dan Kremer, a seasoned touring musician, the ensemble makes for a powerhouse trio.
