Shattered Sun

News image

Shattered Sun is an up-and-coming metal-core band and I was extremely honored and proud to engage these new metal artists. Being a Hispanic and sharing a love for the genre made this interview a bit special. How so? The entire musical line of this band happens to be Hispanic. My conversation with vocalist Marcos Leal was quite insightful; we touched on a lot within a short period of time. The direction and future of this newly minted project was astonishing. Shattered Sun is a sextet hailing from the small town of Alice, Texas. Their sound provides hard hitting riffs laced with Leal's unique vocal assault. The band provides ripping arrangements tooled in advance by its founder and guitarist Daniel Trejo along with input from their drummer, Robert Garza, who lays down some fierce acrobatic drumming. I can assure you it's a collaborative effort as the vocalist describes it and the musical foundation is laid brick by brick. Shattered Sun is a true testimony to the hard driving sprit of its members, a definite cohesiveness that eludes many bands today. They've all grown up in an area riddled with violence, gangs and drugs. All too often we hear how the...


Chiodos: Devil

News image

Chiodos is back with a vengeance on their fourth album, "Devil". The band has produced a sonic masterpiece that takes the listener on a musical and emotional roller coaster ride. Original vocalist Craig Owens and drummer Derrick Frost are back in the fold, and form the twisting and turning track for the rest of the band to ride upon. Keyboardist Bradley Bell, bassist Matt Goddard, and guitarists Pat McManaman and Thomas Erak play with wild abandon and stellar technical prowess. Owens uses every facet of his vocal ability to deliver the full range of emotions necessary to match his lyrics. He is the rare vocalist who can sing softly and sweetly, loudly and angrily, and everything in between. "Devil" is full of great songs of all styles of rock.

PA metal natives BLACK CROWN INITIATE have announced their debut LP titled The Wreckage Of Stars, due out September 30, 2014 via eOne Music. The band signed their brand new label deal earlier this summer and have since been hitting the road hard with acts like SEPTIC FLESH and FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE. The band will be participating on the all new SUMMER SLAUGHTER TOUR: THE CANADA CLUB TOUR 2014 with THE FACELESS. 

With the band playing their first show less than a year ago, things are moving fast for Black Crown Initiate. "We started this band with absolutely no clue how far it would take us," says guitarist Andy Thomas. "It has been an amazing time, as of today, we can honestly say that we are starting a new chapter in our careers; one that will afford us opportunities that we never imagined. We are absolutely honored to be part of the eOne family."

Black Crown Initiate, or commonly referred as BCI, is firmly planted at Atrium Audio, (August Burns Red, Rivers of Nihil) working with producer Carson Slovak on their debut LP. The effort will be the follow up to the critically acclaimed Song of the Crippled Bull EP they released last year. The band managed to get the attention and more than a few nods in the press, most notably landing on the “Albums That Will #$@&%*! Your Face Off in 2014”  list released by Metal Sucks throughout the year. They touted the EP as a "rare beast that’ll both catch your ear on first listen and keep getting better and better each time."

PAIN OF SALVATION announce North American Tour Dates kicking off at ProgPower

Daniel Gildenlöw has led his band PAIN OF SALVATION through a variety of fascinating evolutionary cycles since 1984, although the band's first recording took place in 1996. Many amazing albums and memorable world tours later, they return to the States in September 2014. 
Their first stop: two different shows on two different days in Atlanta, both under the umbrella of the ProgPower festival. The second show promises to be particularly special: they will perform 2002's Remedy Lane album in its entirety on Saturday, September 13.
From there the band plays 12 additional shows, taking them throughout the US and into Canada and even a stop in Mexico for the final date. Pain of Salvation is a cornerstone of the InsideOut label, releasing their first album, Entropia, for the label in 1997. Their latest album, Road Salt Two, was released in 2011.

LEPROUS announce North American Tour
Including their return to ProgPower 

Norwegian cutting-edge prog metallers LEPROUS have announced a short but sweet string of North American dates. 
The seven-date jaunt sees them playing North America's largest prog-friendly festival, Atlanta's ProgPower, after which the band heads west then north into Canada, ending up with dates in New York City and Virginia before heading home.
Leprous appeared only once before in America, when in 2010 they played a ProgPower pre-festival gig in Atlanta. The band members played the festival itself a year later as back-up band for Ihsahn (the solo excursion of Emperor's guitarist/vocalist), a role they have fulfilled for nearly 10 years. This is Leprous's first-ever multi-show trip through North America. They will be supporting their phenomenal Coal album, released in 2013 on InsideOut.
09/12/2014 - ProgPower USA - Atlanta, GA
09/16/2014 - The Token Lounge - Detroit, MI
