It's double drop E, with the lowest string an octave below standard E on both guitar and bass. The tuning is (E A E A D G B). We aim to use horror themes and atmospheres on top of punishing riffs in each song.” With influences from the members of the band deriving from Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Rob Zombie, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and Korn, Sordes Dominum

TITVN Release New Single "Unholy Beast (The Revenant)"

The band have just unleashed their new single “Unholy Beast (The Revenant)”. “Unholy Beast” is about the confrontation between two characters from the popular video game “Apex Legends”.

The Difference Between Release Haunting New Single "Cold Comfort"

  Ever since their respective bands toured together in 2017, guitarist Chris Wethington (of Softspoken) and drummer Cody Frain (of A Scent Like Wolves) entertained the idea of writing together in a new project. Four years later, after touring across the world, racking up millions of streams, and releasing Billboard charting albums separately, their ideas and talents have come together to create the perfect blend of progressive metalcore grooves and beautifully dissonant melodies. Giving a voice to the music is Chris Roberts - the original vocalist of (formerly) post-hardcore band Emarosa (then also known as Corsets are Cages). Roberts played a large part in writing the first versions of most of the songs that would end up on Emarosa's breakout EP "This is Your Way Out", but parted ways with the band to see success in two other regional acts (The Revival Sound, Take Me Home) before taking a break from performing. Having shared the stage with Roberts while in his first band

Sunflower Dead Re-Imagines The Classic INXS 1987 Hit "Never Tear Us Apart"

  Sunflower Dead, the infectious active rock band from Long Beach, CA, has released a new song “Never Tear Us Apart” today. A cover of the 1987 hit by INXS. The song is also the third single from the band’s upcoming fourth album March Of The Leper, due out March 2022. Michael Del Pizzo on why they are covering this particular song "SFD really doesn’t like doing covers. I guess we are too lazy to learn how others correctly play their songs which is funny because our new cover of INXS’ Never Tear Us Apart is our second cover in 4 albums. Go figure! We did The Police’s Every Breath You Take on our debut album and to this day it remains one of our most requested songs and it had no radio play, no video and no promotion. For us to do a cover we have to completely rewrite our way. To do that, we have to be inspired by some kind of killer idea (in our heads at least) in a direction to take the song. With Never Tear Us Apart, we started talking about doing this back in 2014 because w
