This lesson will help You to work especially on Your right hand. There are tons of fast, palm muted licks with only down strokes at 220 bpm. All is based on some very popular, metalcore concepts. Every note belongs to the C# minor scale but being honest…
Progression: It’s something that’s faced at every turn in life. For some reason, fans of music fear the progression of a band, especially when it comes to experimenting with a new sound. For Scranton PA’s Motionless In White, progression is the name of their game. Truthfully, this should be the case with any band but you can’t knock a band for sticking to what works for them. Starting with the release of 2014’s ‘Reincarnate’, vocalist Chris “Motionless” Cerulli began experimenting with more clean singing. This, in turn, cause a polarization in their fan base, as is the case with just about any change in a band’s sound. For 2017’s ‘Graveyard Shift’ and their first for their new label, Roadrunner Records, the band decided to ease up a bit on the experimentation, rather diving deeper into more influences that had not been previously explored in their music.
“This album is as much yours as it is ours,” says While She Sleeps’ Mat Welsh, hashing out a sentiment that explores how bands cannot exist in today’s industry without significant support through record sales, streams and successful attendance at live shows. But when the vocalist/guitarist articulates this over the phone, he means it in a far more heartfelt, substantial way than moving hundreds—even thousands—of copies in an album’s opening week. Welsh and his fellow bandmates simply couldn’t have made their upcoming album without fan support and input before the record’s creation. Rather than bank on the backing of a label, the U.K.-based metalcore group opted to take a risk and crowdfund the capital to self-release their upcoming 2017 full-length, You Are We. With four months left until the album is released, While She Sleeps fans alone have already helped the band achieve 133 percent of the pledge goal.
DARKEST HOUR, the Washington, D.C. metalcore pioneers, will release their ninth full-length album, "Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora", on March 10 via Southern Lord Recordings. The 12-song effort was part of a crowdfunding campaign that the band launched earlier this year, with the ultimate tally netting the band well over 100% of the initial goal and allowing them to also create an album beyond their initial expectations. The band chose producer Kurt Ballou (HIGH ON FIRE, NAILS, CONVERGE) for "his obvious genius" (as guitar player Mike Schleibaum said) and recorded the release at Ballou's Godcity Studio. Artist Shaun Beaudry was commissioned to create a custom painting, giving the album a unique visual identity.
Montreal Metal – a seal of approval to be reckoned with: the perfect breeding ground for bands looking for a rather menacing wall of sound! Next to Despised Icon, Beneath The Massacre and Cryptopsy THE AGONIST seem to be designed to make it all the way to the top of the extreme metal scene with their fine-tuned mixture of melodic death metal and metalcore. “Five” makes the exceptional position of the Canadian fivepiece even clearer – as well as its goal to escape all things ordinary. Ever since singer Vicky Psarakis joined the group in 2014…
