Salvation Through Struggle
Earth Crisis Release New Album, Post New Video Online
May 9, 2009
One of the most anticipated and talked about reunions of 2008 was without a doubt the reformation of Earth Crisis. The pioneers of the hardcore, straight edge movement have crafted their most angst ridden and unrelenting offering of their already stellar career and this effort is going to serve as a much needed wake up call to the masses. The highly anticipated release, 'To The Death', is now available as the group embarks on a lengthy U.S. headlining tour with Walls of Jericho, Reign Supreme, Blood Stands Still and Unholy in the support slots. Be sure to visit to view their complete touring itinerary.

Earth Crisis' new conceptual video for the crushing track, “To Ashes,” can now be viewed exclusively at, so head over now to check it out.

Scott Crouse (guitars) further comments: “This is an exciting time for Earth Crisis. 'To The Death', our first record in nine years, is finally in stores and we couldn't be more proud of it. Paul Romano's (Mastodon) art came out incredible and Tue Madsen (August Burns Red, Winds of Plague) made us sound the way we always should have. We are currently out on tour and the response to the new songs has been incredible. On top of that we have a new conceptual video for the song ‘To Ashes.’ It was directed by David Brodsky (Black Dahlia Murder, White Chapel), who did an amazing job capturing the vibe of the song. We hope all our diehard fans go out and buy 'To The Death' and we promise you won’t be disappointed. See you all soon.”

In 2009, Earth Crisis has returned to remind everyone what hardcore is all about.

Unholy Streaming Entire New Album Online
May 5, 2009
The Syracuse, NY based metallic hardcore act, Unholy, and their label Prosthetic Records are pleased to announce that 'New Life Behind Closed Eyes' will be up streaming in its entirety on starting on Tuesday, May 5th. This gives fans and newcomers an entire week to listen to the full album before it is released on Tuesday, May 12th. And what better place to offer a full stream then, seeing as the Unholy's debut release, 'Blood of the Medusa', was released through (the now defunct) Lambgoat Records back in 2007.

Check out 'New Life Behind Closed Eyes' and don’t forget to catch Unholy who are currenty touring across the US with Earth Crisis and Walls of Jericho, which kicked off Saturday May 2nd in Fredericksburg, VA. Check out the full list of dates below.

Here’s what guitarist Jonathan Dennison has to say about the full stream of the band’s upcoming release, 'New Life Behind Closed Eyes'; “Just when we thought we escaped Lambgoat, the home of NO CARE EVER! Now you get to take the first peak at our new record, two years since our Lambgoat debut. We can't wait to hear the feedback from some of the most creative posters on the internet."

The follow-up to 2007's 'Blood of the Medusa' (Lambgoat Records), 'New Life Behind Closed Eyes' was recorded at Syracuse's Moresound Studios (Ed Gein) and sees new vocalist Billy Price paint a scathing portrait of mankind's failures and shortcomings. The album's concept, written by Dennison, revolves around an end-time narrative of the final days of humanity delivered by its own hand. Richly detailed artwork furthers the album's unsettling mood, but ultimately, it's the music within -- a very heavy take on the northeastern metal sound, with strong riffs, intense vocals and sharp soloing -- that makes Unholy impossible to ignore.

'New Life Behind Closed Eyes' track listing:
1. Seeker Immortal
2. Children of Eternal Sleep
3. These Wounds Never Heal
4. Into The Flesh Of Another
5. The Blinding Light
6. Look To The Blood
7. No Faith
8. The Followers
9. Behind The Veil Of Darkness
10. New Life Behind Closed Eyes

As Blood Runs Black, Terror To Team Up For Tour
September 27, 2008
The hardcore loyalists in LA’s Terror recently wrapped up a massive seven-week, headlining, North American trek in support of their highly acclaimed new album, 'The Damned, The Shamed'. The tour also featured The Warriors, Death Before Dishonor, CDC and Trapped Under Ice marking their first headlining tour in almost two years. The group now prepares to embark on the much anticipated “Choose Or Lose, Vote Or Die” tour serving as direct support to one of the genre’s most talked about newer artists, As Blood Runs Black, who are preparing to record their sophomore effort. This amazing bill, which kicks off on Oct. 16th, is rounded out by Blood Stands Still with On Broken Wings and The Ghost Inside on select dates.

As Blood Runs Black guitarist Ernie Flores states: “At first I was deeply thinking of naming this tour the ‘Odd Man Out Tour’ considering we're the only band on the tour more on the metal side. Then I sat down and realized how long we've wanted to do a tour like this. It's going to be a great time playing with the package we have set up for this tour and we'll be able to really branch out to the real hardcore community, as the others will be able to branch out to the younger crowd and newer generation of fans that we have. Having our label mates Blood Stands Still and The Ghost Inside is already a big plus to this tour since we're all great friends already. Personally, Terror is one of my favorite bands of all time so I'm sure you'll see me running around in the crowd every night and we've been On Broken Wings fans for years. This tour should be a huge success for everyone and even more so a fucking blast. We're going to be playing a bunch of brand new tracks that will be on the new record so make sure you all come out and peep the new shit.

“As far as the new record is concerned, we're really almost done. We've been dedicating almost all of our time to touring as much as possible, covering as much ground as possible and taking our time with writing. We're in the studio tracking now and hoping for a March 2009 release. We'll be posting brand new demo tracks prior to the tour. It's coming. Hate it or love it, like it or not.

“In addition and on another topic, our boys in Bury Your Dead were in a horrible accident this morning. Slim is still in the hospital so everyone please stop by their page and pay your respect and love to the boys and hope for Slim's speedy recovery. Get better homeboy. We're all here waiting for you. Alright, well that's all I really have to say. Hope to see all of you at the shows having a good time and going crazy with all of us.”

Scott Vogel (vocals) of Terror further comments: “After a month long break we are going right back out and hitting the U.S. again to keeping promoting our new record. After just finishing up a more straight up traditional hardcore tour, which we love, this time were going out with mostly more metalish HC modern stuff or whatever you call it. We are looking forward to playing to some of the newer, younger kids. We are hitting up a lot of places we haven't been to in a while and of course, some of the regulars. The tour mostly is in the middle of the country with the east and west coast not having many shows this time around. We hope to see you all there and look forward to making many new friends along the way.”

Blending east coast breakdowns with west coast mosh, southern California’s Blood Stands Still bridges the gap hardcore has needed. With ‘Salvation Through Struggle’, the band has taken its signature brand of crushing hardcore to a level thought to not be possible within this genre.

Building a reputation as true road warriors, the band has spent years touring alongside the likes of Throwdown, Terror, First Blood, and many others. The years spent on the road, along with two independent releases, has earned the band a loyal following spread across the U.S. With multiple tours already planned for the year, the band has no plans to abandon their role as hardcore’s traveling band.
