Dark Station Releases New Video Inspired by the Movie Venom for Fourth Single "Villain"

Dark Station has released a new video for their fourth single "Villain" off of their anticipated debut album "Down in the Dark" set to release October 25, 2019. The single, as well as the video, was inspired by the movie Venom.

The video can be seen here: www.darkstationband.com and below:



"Villain is 100 percent about the character Eddie Brock and his relationship with Venom. It's about how they had to accept and compromise on this new way of living, but I think people will relate it to things that are important to them. This song means the most to me, because while we were writing the song, I really started to believe in myself again as well as Dark Station." says Nathan Spades (vocals) on what "Villain" was written about.

Kyle Ort adds, "Since the lyrics were inspired by the movie Venom, we wanted to keep the same feel for the video. The video starts out with this darkness taking over Nathan, eventually leading him to rob a gas stat…

Hell Fire announce North American tour dates supporting Death Angel

San Francisco quartet Hell Fire announce new tour dates to perfectly close out an epic year of shows, with the band supporting thrash legends Death Angel throughout North America. The tour kicks off November 16th in Seattle. Please see all dates below.

Check out their video 'On The Loose':


Mania is the band's first proper album on RidingEasy Records, following the label's worldwide reissue of the band's self-released 2017 sophomore breakout Free Again, released on January 18th.

Formed in recent years in San Francisco, though it may seem more likely that they hatched fresh out of a time travel portal from the mid-80s Bay Area thrash scene, Hell Fire have the classic look and sound of modern metal's halcyon days. Hell Fire's sonic assault warmly condenses elements of influences like Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Exodus, Metallica, Riot, Virtue and Diamond Head into 10 tracks of headbanging MUYA anthems.

BLIND GUARDIAN's TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA launch official lyric for new single 'Point Of No Return'

Promising to be one of the most ambitious projects in metal history, BLIND GUARDIAN's forthcoming release will be well worth the wait. The idea of recording an orchestral album originally formed in the minds of the two leading lights of the BLIND GUARDIAN universe - guitarist André Olbrich and singer Hansi Kürsch - during the 1990's when BLIND GUARDIAN started to use orchestral elements to enhance their opulent sound. The monumental project started to take shape over recent years, and mirroring its epic sound cascades, the lyrical concept was developed. To create the concept, Andrè and Hansi worked alongside German bestselling author Markus Heitz, whose latest novel Die dunklen Lande was released on March 1st, 2019. The book is set in 1629 and contains the prequel to BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA's opus Legacy Of The Dark Lands, which will be out on November 8th, 2019.

To give their fans a first taster of the new album, the band is proud to present the first single, &…

JULIET RUIN Album "Old Stardust, Love, and Chaos" Out Now

Edmonton, AB's JULIET RUIN unleashed their first full-length album "Old Stardust, Love and Chaos" on September 6, 2019 to follow their 2017 debut self titled EP. The release is more technical with heavy instrumentation, including some dabbling in low tuned 7 string guitars to create an original sound chock full of catchy hooks that convey a fresh and emotive feel to their heavy music.

“'Old Stardust, Love, and Chaos' stays true to a lot of our root qualities in terms of catchy hooks and overall groove, but fans can expect a lot of new and even somewhat experimental things on the album as well. Lyrically speaking this album delves into a little bit deeper subject matter tha…

Life of Agony premiere "Lay Down" video

Following their hit single, “Scars”, released last month, LIFE OF AGONY has just unleashed its infectious follow-up “Lay Down” from their forthcoming concept record, The Sound of Scars, due October 11, 2019 (Napalm). Lead vocalist Mina Caputo’s intense delivery of the chorus lyrics “I won’t lay down and die,” gives a voice for anyone who has ever been stepped on, used up, and tossed aside.

“It’s an anthem for survivors,” says bassist Alan Robert. “We’ve all been through situations in our lives where everything seems completely hopeless. “Lay Down” is about believing in yourself when no one else will. Times when you really have to dig down deep to find that that last ounce of strength to keep on going.”

This powerful message ties to themes found on the group’s highly anticipated album, The Sound of Scars, which acts as “chapter two” to their groundbreaking ‘93 debut, River Runs Red.

While searching for a place to film the “Lay Down” music video, the band was invited to do the shoot in…
