WE CAME AS ROMANS drop two new singles ahead of their upcoming US tour with Motionless In White

Brotherhood lasts forever. No matter what happens, those bonds endure in memories and moments. We Came As Romans hold a similar link between them. After nearly 15 years together, countless sold out shows, critical acclaim, and over 250 million streams, the Michigan quintet - Joshua Moore [guitar], Dave Stephens [vocals], Lou Cotton [guitar], Andy Glass [bass] and David Puckett [drums] - weathered their darkest time and emerge stronger in the name of a fallen brother and member: Kyle Pavone.

The band has released two brand new songs: Carry the Weight and From the First Note. These are the first tracks that the band has released since Pavone's tragic passing in August 2018. Watch and listen below:

September Mourning Release Animated ‘Hiding From Heaven’ video Ahead Of Fall Tour

Road warriors September Mourning are gearing up for fall tours as direct support for Twizted and Sons of Texas with the release of an animated video for new single "Hiding From Heaven". The song was produced by 5-time Grammy Award winning Chris Lord-Alge; along with Josh Napert, & Nick Scott. The track will be included on the band's forthcoming EP, “Volume III”, which is set to drop on Dec. 13th.

Check out the new video:



The band's Emily Lazar (September) says, “When we set out to make a video for 'Hiding From Heaven,' we strived for a visual presentation that would represent the project in a creative manner. September Mourning is a trans-media project, meaning its concept is forged by a storyline that permeates throughout different mediums of art. One of those is the comic book aspect, whose storyline is a combative tale of life versus death. We took that idea and expanded the universe through animation." The band's graphic novels have been rel…

After many travels & tours, we met our friends from THE 69 EYES this year at Metalfest CZ.

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.

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.

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, &…
