Terror To Kick Off 2010 As Part Of 'Mosh Lives II Tour'
December 22, 2009
The tireless and tour-hungry hardcore loyalists in LA's Terror, spearheaded by the endless enthusiasm of frontman Scott Vogel, have earned quite a reputation since forming at the turn of the millennium. Their melding of no-frills breakneck hardcore and the fervor of new generation metal bridges the gap between young and old, and it makes for one hell of a pit no matter what city or stage the band leaves in ruin. Vogel has been a key figure in the scene's survival, having given up a normal home life to slug it out on the road despite broken limbs, slipped discs and everything else that comes with hosting a Terror show.

This past year saw Terror tour relentlessly across the world a number of times over in support of their highly acclaimed latest album, 'The Damned, The Shamed', and will kick off the New Year with a massive North American run, dubbed "The Mosh Lives II Tour" with Emmure, After The Burial, Miss May I and Thick As Blood. The trek kicks off on Jan. 22nd and be sure to head over to www.myspace.com/terror for all current tourdates and news.

further states: "It's crazy to think that at this point Terror has been around for about eight years. I guess after this year we have been around the world four times, recently adding Hawaii and Southeast Asia to the places we've played. The Atticus tour and the 10 For $10 tour were really wonderful, letting us clearly know that the U.S. is still solidly behind us. We are finishing up the year writing for our new LP 'Keepers Of The Faith'. I guess we kind of are a real band at this point as we prepare for our fifth album. Emmure is taking us out again in January and then off to Europe with Madball, Death Before Dishonor and Cruel Hand. Life's good. The true believers remain."

If anything, Terror's goal is to bring back the good natured release of circle pits and stage dives as well as the finger-pointing anthems that were once integral to the hardcore scene.

July 28, 2009

Despised Icon Post New Song Online, Prep For Thrash And Burn
July 18, 2009
Brutally intense, unrelenting and outright savage are just a few ways the metal community will describe the new offering from Montreal’s hottest export Despised Icon, as their new full-length effort, 'Day of Mourning', is a true lesson in violence. The material contained on this disc should come bearing a caution label stating “Is known to evoke extreme erratic and violent tendencies coupled with a desire to kill.”

The dichotomy of the dual vocal assault of Alex Erian and Steve Marois adds the depth and dynamic that few bands can attempt to replicate. The addition of new bassist Max Lavelle quickly proved his skills keeping up with the maniacal drumming of Alexandre Pelletier who delivers his most impressive performance yet, raising the bar for his peers within the genre. Longtime guitarist Eric Jarrin and newcomer Ben Landreville round everything out with a blistering, frenetic barrage of cut-throat riffs.

The blistering new track, “MVP,” is now available on the band’s MySpace page, so head over now to check it out. The group kicks off their worldwide touring campaign for 'Day of Mourning' on July 24th as part of the massive “Trash and Burn” package playing alongside DevilDriver, Emmure, Veil of Maya and a slew of others. Either see below or visit their MySpace to view their complete touring itinerary.

Despised Icon
brought on board an all-star team for the 'Day of Mourning' recording process. They joined back up with longtime producer (and former guitar player) Yannick St-Amand for all tracking duties with renowned producer Andreas Magnusson (Haste The Day, Born of Osiris) entering the fold to mix the effort, with mastering being handled by Alan Douches (Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Nile).

HOME TOWN: Queens. NY/Fairfield, CT
Frank - Vocals

Jesse - Guitar

There’s little to be said about Emmure that wasn’t bestowed upon them with their first release, Goodbye to the Gallows. The band has kept its patented hellbrand of unbridled metal partnered with lyrics of revenge and issues with the opposite sex. What no one expected was that for one of the heaviest bands to blast Victory Records in recent years, things were about to get a lot weightier, and that was something to get people talking again.

Just over a year after the highly successful Gallows hit shelves, the world is at the mercy of Emmure once again. It’s with an almost-unspeakable sense of volatility that the band has stormed back in a warpath full of fresh topics that didn’t get their due on the first record. This new time bomb, The Respect Issue, is making up for lost time.

“As a band, after a while you start to thirst for self expression, and I personally had a lot of demons to fight,” said vocalist Frankie Palmeri. “I feel I’ve gotten some closure on some topics that I touched on Gallows, and The Respect Issue is definitely a page turned for me.”

While the album is not Gallows part deux, Palmeri didn’t want to stray too far from the unhinged chaos and “uncompromising, brutal honesty” of the first album and those who connected with it. Guitarists Ben Lionetti and Jesse Ketive still shred with the same furor, Joe Lionetti bashes skins in a familiar urgency, and bassist Mark Davis lays down the foundation with seasoned precision. Now, the tracks are shrouded in a crushing wet blanket that takes The Respect Issue to a darker, yet more illuminating, level of metal advancement.

“The Respect Issue is titled perfectly based on the lyrics, which are very raw and cut to the core on a lot of things. The point is simple – show no respect, get no respect,” Palmeri said. “It has a lot to do with letting go of things or people that bring you down in life. We wanted to make a heavy and dark record, but also a fun record.”

Just when one has the most notorious metal live acts out of Connecticut pegged, a curveball is thrown to keep fans wanting more. The mosh-drenched anthems provide a soundtrack for the most intense, unforgettable shows ever witnessed, and has been the integral part to Emmure’s rabid fan base. “If it weren’t for the great tours we’ve done, I don’t think we would have had even a fraction of the success we’ve had,” Palmeri said of jaunts with bands such as Darkest Hour, August Burns Red, and Misery Signals.

This much-anticipated record will not only meet the expectations of those craving it, but is the kind of metal record to draw in every kind of music aficionado. The movement Emmure started with Goodbye to the Gallows will not be repeated with The Respect Issue – it will be escalated. Say you heard of them last year, because their world domination is only a breakdown away.
