Watch 'Suck It Up' (official lyric video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0veiaMz8vQ4


"The new single 'Suck It Up' targets the topic of chaotic relationships, which comes from our own personal experiences of being wronged. People aren’t always what they seem, you think you know them, but it can be all smoke and mirrors.

Life can be going so well, then out of nowhere a certain turn of events can completely turn your life upside down. To ‘suck it up’ is probably the worst piece of advice you can ever give to a person in crisis. In past times, that would have been the norm for humans to appear to be ok and hide their weakness.

It represents the best and the worst parts that reside within all of us. It is the bad and the weak in us that validates the polar opposite existence of the good and strong in us. We determine who is “us” by either consciously, or subconsciously, choo…

Metalcore act Conquer Divide released their self-titled debut back in 2015 then since 2018 the band went quiet but now they are back with new single and video 'Chemicals'.
Check out 'Chemicals' below:

 "We know everyone's been dying to hear what we've been up to, and the short answer is that we had just taken a bit of a break to focus on our personal lives. We had a lot of time to reflect on what direction we wanted to go in next. I think collectively our musical tastes have all evolved. We still wanted to feel heavy and anthemic but it was important for us to step outside of our comfort zone moving forward," the band, which accumulated over 20 millions streams of its debut album, explains.

About the new track, which was produced by Joey Sturgis and Tyler Smyth, the band shares, "'Chemicals' is about addiction from the perspective of an artist. More often than not, addiction can get swept under the rug or is almost encouraged in some circum…

LAANG release new single and lyric video

Laang 冷 (meaning “cold” in Chinese) has released the debut single “我的漂浮屍體” (meaning “My Floating Corpse”) from their upcoming second album “Xinteng” (Sadness, loss) in the form of a lyric video. The music of Laang is based on the horrifying visions seen during a near-death experience of frontman Yang Haitao while medically dead. While the subject matter of the first album “Haiyang” (Ocean) primarily explored feelings of terror, Haitao reports that “Xinteng” will be strongly focused on the melancholic and depressive overtones of life after death.

“我的漂浮屍體” gives a first glimpse at the new music of Laang’s second album “Xinteng”. “Xinteng” will be released worldwide on Austria’s Talheim Records in both physical and digital formats.

REVIEW: Elimination - 'Of Gods & Beasts' EP

Elimination are a 3 piece thrash metal act hailing from Suffolk UK who formed back in 2007. They released their debut album two years later “Destroyed By Creation” which opened up many doors for the band and led to a quick release of their sophomore album "The Blood Of Titans' which was supported by a UK tour with Evile as well as festival appearances at the likes of Hammerfest. The band had a hiatus back in 2012 and returned in 2018 with a new line-up and now in 2020 they are ready to wreak havoc once again with their upcoming EP 'Of Gods & Beasts'...

Opening track 'In The Name Of Violence' is blistering and insane throughout with effective and powerful group chants and soaring guitars, a great demanding and powerful start to the EP.
'The Return' showcases immediate crushing guitars and a sense of urgency but has a more optimistic and hopeful sound than the opener and a highly skilled solo to top it off, another boastful thrash metal offering.
