Birth and the Burial is the debut studio album by American heavy metal supergroup Act of Defiance. It was released on August 21, 2015 through Metal Blade Records. In a time of endless sub-genre classifications being thrown at bands Act Of Defiance cut to the quick, offering 100% in-your-face, uncompromising metal.
French death metal veterans LOUDBLAST have inked a deal with Listenable Records for the follow up to 2011's "Frozen Moments Between Life And Death". Due out later this year, the band's newest album will be titled "Burial Ground".A solid mix of classic and modern influences, the latest output from these death metal veterans dares transgressing their traditional thrash/death style of yore to achieve a much more malign yet as catchy sound. "Burial Ground" benefits from a massive production and sees the band evolving in further darker sounds while retaining the original '90s classic death metal roots.
Nearly one decade ago, After the Burial – a five-piece progressive metalcore/deathcore act – came together after a bunch of friends met at a high school in Minnesota. Since then, the band has released three albums: 2006's Forging a Future Self, 2008's Rareform (and the 2009 re-recorded version, which featured a new vocalist and a live drummer) and 2010's In Dreams. Fans have been anxiously awaiting more new material from the band, especially after a pre-production demo/video was released nearly two years ago. Finally, the guys are back in business and they are set to release Wolves Within on December 17 via Sumerian Records.
Mass Burial was established in 2008 by vocalist/bassist Goran M, the ideologist and main song writer, and lead guitarist Alen A, who gave the band's sound its typical sophisticated finish. The current line up is completed with Ron M on drums. The blackened death metal band from Sydney Australia musically combines elements of merciless vehemence with atmospheric mysticism; amalgamating a unique blend of death and black metal.
Burial Ground is easily the best album to be unleashed from the Stockholm death metal vets in Grave since their 2002 reunion with Back From the Grave. Though Grave has never really been mentioned in the same revered breath as their contemporaries in Entombed or Dismember, the band have always been reliable, and have been delivering solid gold beatings since the late '80s
Imagine the ebullience of Rush, ELP and Dream Theater injected with fiery jazz fusion laid out over some powerful melodies, and you'll have a good idea of what 4Front sound like. They are an American trio of highly skilled musicians with impressive credentials: Happy the Man's very own drummer Joe Bergamini; guitarist-keyboardist Zak Rizvi and bassist Frank LaPlaca who have performed together for over a decade with US's premier Rush tribute band Power Windows - LaPlaca also played with NYC rock acts Eternal Vision and The Buddha Brains. Under the name of 4Front, they have toured extensively in the Eastern US and in Puerto Rico, opening shows for Saga, Marillion and Kansas. Their material is mostly instrumental.
Our Encore editions usually stick to the original track list and running order, but Jagged Edge never had individual track titles. And now it does! Plus we have remastered it and re-sequenced it for an all-new listening experience. There wasn’t any additional music, so we couldn’t offer this as a Deluxe Edition, however, we have really shined up this Jagged Edge. A beautiful, bittersweet John Barry love theme along with some atypical suspense music are hallmarks of this very distinct entry in Barry’s legendary filmography.
