Children Of Bodom

WEDNESDAY 13 Debuts new single 'Bring Your Own Blood'

Ghoulish horror fiends WEDNESDAY 13 have released a visualizer for new single 'Bring Your Own Blood.' The track comes off the band’s upcoming album, 'Necrophaze' - out on September 27th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Watch the visualizer for 'Bring Your Own Blood' here: https://youtu.be/B1iZ6KHx7KQ



Commenting on the new song, the Duke of Spook himself, Wednesday 13, says, "'BYOB' is one of my favorites off the new album. It’s what I like to call the “party scene” in this audio-horror movie that is 'Necrophaze'. Like in a lot of my favorite 80s horror films there was a party scene, and usually a rock ‘n’ roll track to back it up...this is that track. This is the fun song on the album before everything gets dark and weird.”

BI·AS Feat. Former KORN Drummer DAVID SILVERIA Drop New Music Video 'Hesitation'

Orange County alt-metal outfit BI·AS, featuring David Silveria (original drummer of Korn) shares their latest music video for their next single ‘Hesitation’. The single is a preview to their much-anticipated debut EP due out in 2020. ‘Hesitation’ gives an early taste of what the record will bring to the table. This is the first song that singer Rich Nguyen wrote with the band during their worldwide singer auditions. The song is about anxiety and how it can cause a lot of missed opportunities; if you let it. The song talks about overcoming the barriers created by anxiety in your mind and pressing on no matter what. ‘Hesitation’ is an anthem of overcoming anxiety and is meant to be a musical affirmation.


Rich Nguyen describes ‘Hesitation’:

“This song in terms of sound is the exact middle ground between "Pity" and "Change Your Mind". It has tons of melody and a smidge of aggression musically and vocally. Fans of the other two singles won't be disappointed."…

EQUILIBRIUM discuss line-up in second album trailer

Progress without estrangement is a rare craft that very few bands truly master. All too often, a band ventures so far from its roots that it loses its trademark sound. And every so often, a band’s stagnation drains all of its charm. Finding that rare balance between the two is a huge task not easily accomplished. And yet there is a band that has been coming close to that perfect balance more and more over the course of the past few years. A band that, ironically, already bears that balance in its well-known name: EQUILIBRIUM.

Their latest, sixth record 'Renegades' (out: August 16th via Nuclear Blast) is heralding a watershed, the turn of an era for this genre. This is metal at its most epic and most monumental, bearing huge songs, resting firmly in the Zeitgeist with massive, modern production and sporting quite a number of eclectic influences. Above all, it’s still Equilibrium - quite possibly more than ever.

The band presents the second album trailer. Find out more about the n…
