Open up your wallets and fund the music we love…

Saint Vitus

The godfathers of American doom metal Saint Vitus are now streaming the third new track, taken from their forthcoming album Saint Vitus. The new record is set for worldwide release on May 17, 2019.

Catch them tonight in Glasgow (Audio) and tomorrow in London at The Underworld.

Headline Maniac

3MS Music are delighted to announce the release of The Chronicles of Dr. Leddfoot from Headline Maniac on June 2019 on CD format. This is Headline Maniac’s second studio album and, over the course of a dozen new songs, it tells the story of a fictional character who, on the outside, is a decent and well-respected pillar of society but, behind closed doors, he hides dark secrets and desires .

Headline Maniac’s members are Ian ‘Dipster’ Dean on Bass /vocals, Simon Bowley on Drums and Chris Taylor on Guitar. All three have enjoyed worldwide success as long serving members of UK pioneers of Punk legends Eddie & the Hotrods. Together they toured the world and played a huge number of fantastically well-received shows to an army of fans who will no doubt come with them on this the next stage of their journey.

Headline Maniac initially formed as a side project but as the debut album received critical acclaim from the music press and rock radio stations the guys decided it was worth a follow up album. With Eddie & the Hotrods entering the valedictory stage of their career it is perhaps time for the Headline Maniac story to really pick up pace.

The Chronicles of Dr. Leddfoot is an ambitious – and, crucially, enormously entertaining – record that showcases the fizz and energy that anyone would expect given the recent history of the protagonists. Mix into that a narrative arc and this becomes an album that really rewards the listener. These Maniacs know what they are doing…

Lord Gore

Horror Pain Gore Death Productions are set to release the new double CD collection from Portland Oregon’s reunited goregrind legends Lord Gore entitled The Resickened Orgy on May 24.

Hailing from Portland Oregon, Lord Gore formed in 1998 and immediately made an impact upon the death metal/grindcore scene, drawing comparisons to such horror obsessed masters as Impetigo and Autopsy. The Resickened Orgy compiles both of their classic out of print albums The Autophagous Orgy and Resickened (originally released on Razorback Records), presented in one disgusting package of thrashy goregrind that is not for the faint of heart. This flawless masterpiece of the macabre contains endless colossal riffs, depraved inhuman vocals (with no pitchshifters or vocal effects), pulverising drumming, crushing production and extremely vile artwork.

Lord Gore disbanded in 2006 but have since returned to infect the masses with utter sickness and further cement their legacy as the kings of true Gore Metal! An essential platter of splatter for fans of Autopsy, Blood Freak, Carcass, Engorged, Frightmare, Ghoul, Impaled, Impetigo, Mortician and Splatterhouse.

Stickup Kid

San Jose rock band Stickup Kid is back with a new album, Soul Drive, which will be released on May 3rd. Formed in 2009, the band was previously signed to Billie Joe Armstrong’s Adeline Records. Soul Drive is their first new full-length since 2013’s Future Fire.

Stickup Kid has shared the stage with acts such as Green Day, The Story So Far, Real Friends, Modern Baseball, Living With Lions, In Her Own Words, A Loss For Words, Handguns, Seaway, Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, and Citizen and has appeared at The FEST.

The band will be touring in support of Soul Drive this spring and the album is available to pre-order now. Check out the title track below.
