Dimebag Darrell Fans – Check Out The New Dimevision Vol 2 CD/DVD

Adrenaline PR

With 2006’s Dimevision Vol 1: That’s The Fun I Have, fans of Dimebag Darrell and his work with Pantera and Damageplan were afforded the chance to see into the world of the legendary guitarist. Compiled from the many, many hours of video footage captured between the mid-80s and his later years, it was a funny, touching and poignant memorial.

Metal Blade Records is thrilled to announce the release of Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over – another true celebration of the man and how he lived his life – on November 24, 2017. Pre-orders are available via Metal Blade here. The DVD/CD set – which will include more raw footage, true gems and classic Dimebag moments – will also include five previously unreleased demos, picked from a vast catalog Dimebag accrued since longtime girlfriend Rita Haney gave him his first 4-track in 1984.

Featured Band – Zaius

Bandcamp

Here’s a very cool video for Seirenes by Zaius!

On Of Adoration, Zaius offer a glimpse into a musical world turned upside down. Featuring an array of sweeping landscapes, rhythmic thought patterns, and complex concepts ringing out with stunning, crystal clear beauty – this isn’t your average instrumental record. Of Adoration is a 40-minute journey traversing genre while defying conventional time signatures. The instrumentation is thoughtful, challenging and without pause. Zaius’ Of Adoration is a record that will appeal to fans of Between The Buried and Me, Pelican, and If These Trees Could Talk. Illustrations for the album were created by Marald Van Haasteren (Baroness, Kylesa) whose style is as colorful and alive as these tracks were meant to be. Video created by Dave Ayling.

Band Of The Day – Septic Flesh

Prosthetic Records

Another heavy one (what did you expect with a name like ‘Septic Flesh?) and this video for ‘Dante’s Inferno’ is particularly interesting because it’s metal combined with orchestra. Anyone else think that thing on the thumbnail reminds you just a little of the Mouth Of Sauron?

Primordial, menacing and majestic; SEPTICFLESH – the gods of orchestral extreme metal  return with their new album, Codex Omega. Available September 1, 2017 in North America on Prosthetic Records, Codex Omega will be available as a 2-CD set, on purple wax vinyl as well as a US indie retail store exclusive on white wax vinyl, and on all digital outlets. Preorders are up now and available at http://smarturl.it/SepticfleshCO.

Band Of The Day – Tetrarch

Adrenaline PR

Hard rock fans will be interested in Atlanta-based, modern melodic metal group Tetrarch. Lead by the multi-faceted, sing-along-worthy vocals of frontman Josh Fore and the searing guitar leads of groundbreaking “guitaress” Diamond Rowe, TETRARCH is rounded out by the powerful bass of Ryan Lermer and relentless drums of Ruben Limas. TETRARCH‘s new album showcases their commanding blend of intense metalcore riffage and driving drums with the dark vibes and haunting choruses of top-charting modern hard rock. The band’s clear influences – ranging from bands like heavy metal giants Slipknot and Trivium to hard rock darlings Mudvayne and Linkin Park – are evident and give TETRARCH the leg up on the competition. Their sound is crushing enough to fit on any heavy metal bill, but catchy enough to land confidently in commercial radio rotation. Click the link below for videos, photos, tour info, and more on Tetrarch.

Review – Gorguts/Exist Show, Syracuse, NY

Scio

Just got back from a metal show at the Lost Horizon in Syracuse, NY featuring five bands: Gorguts, Exist, Inhumanitis, Ebony Sorrow, and Scio.

First up was Scio (out of Frankfort, NY) filling in for Defeated Sanity who were originally on the bill but were unable to make the show. Scio was really tight with a hardcore sound and their five piece sounded great live. Jeff Lyszczarz – Vocals, Jerry Palmer – Guitar, Bob Ruffule – Guitar, Austin Evanchak – Drums, Tyler Mead – Bass. Check out their Facebook site here. Lyszczarz has an incredible screaming vocal; I’m not sure how he’s even able to speak after a show.

Band Of The Day – Coroner: The Favorite Game

Wikipedia

Formed way back in 1983 Coroner is one of the best bands ever to emerge from the metal scene. From speed metal origins Coroner morphed into a more progressive but still heavy sound that was ahead of their time. It’s too bad they never released more material than a handful of albums but what they did put out was incredible. Coroner still appear at major metal fests like Hellfest and there has been talk of new material for a while. In the meantime, enjoy ‘The Favorite Game’, originally from their Grin LP but found again on their last self-titled release – Coroner. If you like this tune be sure to scroll through the other songs on this album. In fact, listening to this tune while working out will give you the ability to lift no less than 1000 pounds or kilograms (your choice!) simply from the sheer power of this band! You won’t be disappointed. Video at the link below.
