After The Burial
An uninhibited eight-stringed dual barrage of frenetic riffs and dynamic chord progression is exactly what the crushing new AFTER THE BURIAL delivers with pinpoint precision. This highly anticipated new offering is quickly going to raise the bar for all others within the metal genre as this group effectively unleashes a frenzy of jaw-dropping dual guitar dynamics that is backed by a captivating energy and groove
resulting in an overall unrelenting output of punishment. This Minnesota quintet is hell-bent on forging their own unique path within the extreme metal genre and they are well on their way to that very goal.
This is an extreme metal hybrid that is a voracious assault on all the senses forcing your brain to fire on all cylinders in order to process the amount of material that is currently being pounded into your ears. This is thinking man's metal and it's not for the weak minded.
The tech-wizardry is amped way up, the breakdowns are massive and face-melting and the vocal delivery is the most devastating yet. Already lauded for their technically impressive yet well structured style of songwriting, AFTER THE BURIAL certainly takes things up a notch or two with this newest outing. Each track will keep you on your toes guessing what might possibly be next in this never-ending array of intensity. This is essentially a roller coaster of unconventionality, so strap yourself in tight and prepare for a wild ride.

ERRA is a four-piece progressive metalcore band hailing from Birmingham, Alabama that formed in 2009. Their namesake comes from Akkadian mythology and represents mayhem. The band, consisting of Ian Eubanks, Jesse Cash, Sean Price and Alex Ballew, solidified their technical sound after relentlessly practicing and writing. They take their influences from well respected groups like Misery Signals, Born of Osiris, As I Lay Dying and Saosin, and thrive on being creative and showcasing their talent through their intense live performances. ERRA takes great pleasure in offering their refreshing sound in a sometimes stale and over-saturated market. It's not about fashion or status; it's about using raw talent and energy to create genuine songs that will give hope to the listener.
Their album Augment was released on Tragic Hero Records and maintains their technical ability, while presenting songs with the potential to embrace a broader audience. The word "Augment" means to enhance or grow, which is what the band believes they have achieved on the album. "It's a very appropriate title based on everything we are trying to accomplish and all the growth we have gone through since our last record," says guitarist Jesse Cash. "Nothing is taken away or watered down, only improved upon, and if anything, we accentuated all the parts that people wanted to hear more of this time around."
Following the release of Augment was their debut EP "Moments of Clarity." The band made necessary changes to assist their stylistic growth and progressive musical talents. Newly signed to Sumerian Records, ERRA hit the road with musical influences Born of Osiris in late 2014 playing for thousands of people across North America. Their first confirmed tour in 2015 is with metal phenomenon, August Burns Red. In Spring 2015, ERRA will be taking their talents to another level as they go to record their first studio album with Sumerian Records.
Make Them Suffer
Make Them Suffer is an Australian deathcore band from Perth, currently signed to Rise Records. Their debut album Neverbloom peaked at No. 56 on the ARIA Album charts in June 2012, while its follow up Old Souls debuted at No. 30 upon release in May 2015. After the band signed with Rise, the label released an expanded version of Old Souls in August 2016, containing also the EP Lord of Woe (originally self-released in 2010) and a new track, "Ether". Their 3rd studio album 'Worlds Apart' was released through Rise Records on 28th July 2017.
