Eighteen Visions Release New Track 'The Disease, The Decline and Wasted Time' Taken From New Album 'XVIII'




EIGHTEEN VISIONS Release New Track ' THE DISEASE, THE DECLINE AND WASTED TIME'
Taken From Long-Awaited New Album XVIII, Out 2nd June Via Rise Records



Eighteen Visions, the seminal metal band that recently announced they had reformed and signed with Rise Records have unleashed a brand new track ' The Disease, The Decline and Wasted Time'taken from their long-awaited new album, XVIII out 2nd June.

"The Disease, The Decline & Wasted time was the first song we wrote for "XVIII." It's heavy and aggressive nature definitely help set the tone for the rest of the album.” says singer James Hart.


Check out the new song below!






XVIII, the reunited and reenergised band’s first new album in over a decade, is both mission statement and battle cry. It’s a blistering, dense, and diverse album. Recharged and newly partnered with Rise Records, 18V sound liberated from the expectations of the outside world and driven only by their own personal and artistic directive. This is the album promised by the raw alchemy of every other Eighteen Visions record. The unrelenting force and unashamed ambition that fueled every stylistic incarnation of this always evolving and never boring band: it’s finally fully realized in the sound of XVIII. The album was made at home in Orange County, with U.K. transplant and multi-instrumentalist producer Mick Kenney at the helm. His close relationship with the guys in the band (vocalist James Hart, guitarist Keith Barney and drummer Trevor Friedrich) lent itself to the most fully realized recording in their discography, emphasizing every strength of 18V’s unique arsenal. Among the album’s many highlights is “Live Again,” a moving tribute to bassist Mick Morris, who passed in 2013, “Picture Perfect” a super heavy, dirgy assault on fakery and wolves in sheep’s clothing, dripping with menacing melody and “Fake Leather Jacket,” a molotov cocktail tossed at the music industry, threatening and staunchly confident.






The full track listening for XVIII is:

1.Crucified
2.The Disease, The Decline, and Wasted Time
3.Underneath My Gun
4. Live Again
5.Laid To Waste in the Shit of Man
6.Oath
7. Spit
8. Picture Perfect
9.Fake Leather Jacket
10. For This I Sacrifice



Eighteen Visions (sometimes stylised as “18 Visions” and regularly name checked by diehard supporters around the world as simply “18V”) were declared part of “The Future of Metal” byRevolver Magazine during their meteoric rise from proto-deathcore indie band, nurtured by the DIY scene, to major label “next big thing” in active rock. A lengthy section of Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal is dedicated to the passion fuelled Orange County heroes. Their fusion of hardcore punk energy and death metal fury; ‘80s Sunset Strip attitude and ‘70s sexualised charisma; and the dark romanticism of grungy ‘90s alt-rock, became something definitively all of their own. They’ve toured with Lamb Of God, Killswitch Engage, Bullet For My Valentine, Coheed And Cambria, HIM, and fellow OC denizens, Avenged Sevenfold. Their live show is both slick and dangerous, impassioned and full of concentration. 18V is incongruously yet brilliantly suited for both the heyday of arena rock and gatherings in sweaty basements.

Eighteen Visions will perform fan favourites and new songs—on 2nd June, when they take the stage for the first time in ten years for a record release show at The Observatory in Orange County. Click HERE for tickets.

Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?

INTERVIEW: Mutation (with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews)

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 


Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews. The trio is completed by drummer known as Denzel (Dean Pearson) who has been involved in many projects with Ginger and plays in Young Legionnaire. I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.



As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…

REVIEW: A Killer's Confession - Unbroken

A Killer's Confession is led by former Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis. The album was recorded in Kentucky, and the anticipated debut comes thanks to David Ellefson of Megadeth’s EMP Label Group. For their debut, they enlisted some friend's and exciting guests appearances to add to the intrigue which raises the stakes high for their first offering...

Opening track 'Awakening' is a short and unhinged scene setter for what lies ahead. Stand out track and latest single 'Rebirth' is atmospheric, melodic and consuming with prominent bass and powerful drums.

The first single self-named title track, 'A Killer's Confession' features none other than Brian 'Head' Welch from Korn on guitar. It sounds strange and eerie through the use of electronic sounds and is a must hear. This is one menacing and crushing track which wouldn't sound out of place on an actual Korn album.

The second half of the album treats us to more guest collaborations with '…
