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. The highly acclaimed new album, In Dreams, 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 In Dreams proves that they are well on their way to that very goal.
Justin (guitars) states: "We've spent the last year putting all of our hard work into this album, and we can assure you that the intricate dynamics of In Dreams will satisfy your appetite for the crushing guitars, driving drums and powerful vocals you've come to expect from us."
AFTER THE BURIAL spent the winter of 2010 touring relentlessly across North America on the "December Decimation" tour. This group has something for everyone that pleases the tech nuts while providing an entertaining stage show that is sure to always get the metalcore kids into a violent frenzy. This is a band that thrives on the road and tours relentlessly across the world non-stop. 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.
AFTER THE BURIAL's highly acclaimed sophomore album, Rareform, hinted at their true potential, but In Dreams brings all of their combined talents to fruition. The disc opens with a freight train of brutality and sheer brute force busting out at the seams and never lets up on the gas for a split second. 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.
In Dreams is going to redefine the genre and position AFTER THE BURIAL as the forerunners of the new extreme progressive movement.
The Acacia Strain
Metalcore/Deathcore band from Massachusetts, formed in 2001.
Vincent Bennett - Vocals
Griffin Landa - Bass
Devin Shidaker - Guitar
Tim Smith - Guitar
Kevin Boutot - Drums
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 (something that comes to mind when giving them a listen). 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.
Make Them Suffer
Hailing from the most remote capital city on the planet, Perth sextet Make Them Suffer have been honing their razor sharp blend of frostbitten black metal, fiery hardcore and gothic misery since 2008. Partnering with global heavy metal powerhouse Roadrunner Records for 2012's critically acclaimed debut, Neverbloom, the band hit the road with the likes of Northlane, Bleeding Through, Job For A Cowboy and Thy Art Is Murder to spread the nightmare throughout Australia, Europe and the UK.
Now in 2015, it is time to draw back the curtains on Make Them Suffer's brand new album Old Souls. Created in the shadows over the last year and tended to by a who's who of heavy music producers, with Jason Suecoff (The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium), Joey Sturgis (Emmure, Asking Alexandria), Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus) and Roland Lim (Make Them Suffer - Neverbloom, I Am Zero) all getting involved, Old Souls sees Make Them Suffer expanding their sonic universe and exploring new territory without sacrificing the vicious metallic attack that first drew fans across the world to them. Whether it's the furious blasting of Threads, the mournful cinematic dirge of Timeless or manic piano signature piercing the thunderous breakdowns of Scraping The Barrel, Old Souls is the evolution heavy music has been waiting for.
