PSYCHO VILLAGE Release New Video 'Can't You See' & Announce UK Tour

Austrian hard rockers Psycho Village are back with a new video for their track ‘Can’t You See’.

Having just completed an intensive European Tour with Texan giants Nothing More, Psycho Village are back with a new video for their track ‘Can’t You See’ and their next UK tour announcement for March 2018.

Psycho Village consists of Daniel Kremsner (Vocals & Guitar), Maximilian Raps (Bass & Backing Vocals) and Marcel Urban(Drums).

“Throughout our career as a band a lot of people have spoken to me about how hard and complicated their lives are. Most of this is related to failed relationships with loved ones, be it an ex-partner, parents or friends; but sometimes it is better to make a clean cut and try to do a fresh start.
Unfortunately, most people still hold onto those past feelings, they can’t let go and then chase something that was not meant to be in the first place. The track ‘Can’t You See’ basically says: It´s Okay, let go, live your life”. – Dani Kremsner

Psycho Village have had …

Legend Of The Seagullmen Premiere Title Track

Genre-destroying supergroup Legend of the Seagullmen are premiering new track “Legend Of The Seagullmen” via Metal Hammer

The track is from their self-titled debut album to be released February 9, 2018 via Dine Alone Records. Listen + share the track HERE.
https://www.facebook.com/metalhammer/videos/10156109398694764/?hc_ref=ARTx8mce8uPoEreQcIxzMUzO-8vQRzgpaX6Q0waLS_5eEp9F5gHISb0s8rMmWxAApdI

"Legend of the Seagullmen" is the song of an ancient power: a time of the Seagullgod King. His legend has been transmitted over generations spanning 400 thousand years, resulting in this furious ripping anthem. It takes at least four guitar players and an army of musicians to unlock the glory and when the blistering progressions find the pounding beat, you‘ll be immersed in the scriptures of a battle torn land." - David "The Doctor" Dreyer

Legend of the Seagullmen is comprised of Tool's Danny Carey on drums, Mastodon's Brent Hinds on guitar, director Jimmy Hayward (Jo…

Spiny Normen Launch 'The Bell Park Loon"

Spiny Normen premiere a new track from their forthcoming posthumous album -- 40 years in the making -- via Classic Rock Magazine. Hear and share "Bell Park Loon" HERE: http://teamrock.com/feature/2018-01-25/everything-you-need-to-know-about-spiny-normen-texass-great-lost-psych-band

Spiny Normen is an incredible mid-70's Houston hard rock, progressive, psychedelic rock band (yes, all that and more) that featured mellotron, vox jaguar, crunchy, heavy guitars, flute with echo effects, and lots more. A totally lost relic this album is, recorded at the community college and never released. This band has a very English, dark, mysterious and proggy but very acid-drenched feeling to it.

Vocalist/guitarist Steve Brudniak dishes on the band's founding and this exceptional recording:

Circa 1976, Gerry and I would skip class, smoke whatever scrap of contraband we could scrape together and meet in the high school auditorium where there was a piano and bang out crunchy rhythms.... At…

CAST THE STONE (feat. MISERY INDEX, CATTLE DECAPITATION and SCOUR members) Sign With Agonia Records

US-based death/black metal act CAST THE STONE re-emerge with a new record deal with Agonia Records. CAST THE STONE first began in 2002 as the original project between guitarist Mark Kloeppel of Misery Index, bassist Derek Engemannof Scour and Cattle Decapitation and drummer Jesse Schobel of Legend/ex-Scour, prior to their departure into their current metal-scene mainstays. Rounded out by vocalist Andrew Huskey, the band will release new music in their original line-up in 2018.
Through years of successful touring and record creation within the membership's other very well known projects, an attitude was fostered of "how would we do this now"? CAST THE STONE returns not as some metal supergroup, but as a project of the original and purest intent of its membership. To be blunt, without CAST THE STONE, the vast majority of the Misery Index discography, Cattle Decapitation's seminal "Monolith of Inhumanity" and "The Anthropocene Extinction" albums, and …

Ded Release Horror Themed Video For "Hate Me"

Ded have released a new horror-themed video for 3rd single "Hate Me". To celebrate the release, the single is now on sale everywhere for just .69 cents.


The clip finds the band playing inside a spooky looking house with a bit of a supernatural vibe going on as they deliver their energetic performance of the track.


Singer Joe Cotela says, “What's up world! We've just released the video for our new single "Hate Me"! This song is all about self-empowerment. It's about following your gut and being who you know you truly are, without being influenced by all of the bullshit around you. It’s about not succumbing to negative energy from negative people."


He continues, "There are people that do nothing with their lives, but talk shit about someone who is on their grind. You can hate my hustle all day - but you will not stop it. This isn't a song for boneheads that think it's cool to be an asshole. It's about doing something positive for yourse…

VARATHRON Reveal New Album Trailer And Details

Legendary, epic Greek black metallers, VARATHRON, will return with their sixth studio album titled "Patriarchs Of Evil" on April 27th via Agonia Records. Watch a teaser video for this release at:

https://youtu.be/JQal6cck2qg






Co-founded in 1988 by Stefan Necroabyssious, the band's vocalist and sole original member, VARATHRON has been on a steady release schedule since 2004's "Crowreign". The latter album introduced Haris (drums) and Achilleas C. (guitars) to the band, who were later joined by Sotiris (guitars) and Stratos (bass), and who together established a new, well-bonded line-up of an already established Hellenic black metal act, considered as one of the forefathers of the genre, next to Rotting Christ and Necromantia.

Having previously described "Patriarchs Of Evil" as "heavy, dark and full of melodies that will revive past memories", VARATHRON elaborates on the successor to "Untrodden Corridors Of Hades" (2014), now that t…

Alt-folk-rock Artist Steve Hewitt Releases 'Pushing Me Away' Video Single

Now under the guiding wing of (UK/US) label Engineer Records, the Kent (UK) based alchemist of alternative folk-rock unleashes his official video single for 'Pushing Me Away'.

Currently writing and producing material for release later this year, Steve Hewitt has honed his song & stage craft through extensive gigging both in the UK and overseas raking in support slots with the likes of Star Sailor, Toploader, The Hoosiers and Newton Faulkner. Adding further to his credentials, the accomplished musician has toured in the US with the Reed Brothers.

Blending a diverse mix of genres and influences into his music, the young Steve Hewitt developed his love for music and creativity during his mid-teens. Reclusively refining his guitar and vocal skills in his garden shed, Steve immersed himself in the song-writing finesse of Bob Dylan, The Smiths, James Morrison, Ben Howard, Fink, John Legend and his frequent vocal comparator David Gray. What emerged from this education was an unde…
