Time to do the Weekend Conga. Here’s your soundtrack.
Eight Days – “Unclear”
Brit Melodic hardcore outfit Eight Days are set to rise with the launch of their new video single “Unclear”. This stunning cut is taken from the band’s forthcoming new EP More To Life, out Friday 14th October.
Taking from a range of areas, from Norma Jean and Black Peaks through to Blink 182 and Yellowcard, Eight Days unleash venomous but inviting hardcore laced with an earnest and cutting delivery. Eight Days do not put out money-fuelled, over-produced “bubble-gum rock”. They hurl out appealing melodic hardcore- filled punk that is determined and genuinely gritty.
Dead By Wednesday – “The Surgeon”
New Haven, CT’s metal titans Dead By Wednesday have released “The Surgeon”, the new video directed by Jacques Molle’ from their guest vocalist album The Darkest of Angels. The album came out in July and you can pick it up on Amazon and help support this site: download / CD
“The Surgeon”, an emotionally-charged acoustic track with unexpected flamenco flair courtesy of Soulfly/Cavalera guitarist Marc Rizzo, has the distinction of being the only track on the album to feature the band’s current full-time vocalist Rob Roy, as well as Rizzo, who was announced earlier this Summer had also joined the band as a full time member.
The Lion & The Wolf – “The Pinching Point”
The Lion And The Wolf has shared the straight to tape session video of “The Pinching Point”. The track, taken from the new album The Cardiac Hotel, out on October 7th, was recorded by Red Squirrel Productions in Ventnor, Isle Of Wight (Pre-order links: download / CD / vinyl). Speaking on the recording, Tom George said:
Recording to tape was something I have always wanted to do. When the opportunity came up to do a live session with Red Squirrel in Ventnor, I couldn’t refuse.
It sounds like a progression compared to my old material and I feel it’s an accurate representation of how I sing live. I feel that it sounds fragile and understated, perhaps? I love the way Red Squirrel approached this, the guitar sounds like it could almost be from a Jeff Buckley track.
Twilight Force – “Riders of the Dawn”
Twilight Force’s label debut entitled Heroes Of Mighty Magic, was released last month via Nuclear Blast. The heroes will begin presenting this record to the European stages next week. In the meantime however, the band have unveiled a new lyric video for Riders Of The Dawn”. Blackwald stated:
“Riders Of The Dawn” is the tale of an ancient, honourable and proud order. Carried by noble steeds across barren plains, they have been the nomadic outriders and protectors of their kingdom of Whardas for as long as any human can remember. “Riders Of the Dawn” is a triumphant and fast paced hymn, permeated by chanting voices honouring the splendor of these heroic equestrians. We look forward to tell the tale of their victories on the battlefield together with you! Now, sound the horns of triumph!
