Employed To Serve To Release New Album “Eternal Forward Motion” In May

Employed To Serve have announced that their new album “Eternal Forward Motion“ will be released on May 10 via Spinefarm. The effort’s first single, “Force Fed,” will be released on Friday (January 25).

Frontwoman Justine Jones commented:

“Without struggle there is no triumph – the human mind manages to flick between polar opposites, from taking life one day at a time and living in the moment, to self-destructing and creating a bitter outlook. It’s important to acknowledge both. Keep moving forward and don’t look back.”

She continued:

“‘Eternal Forward Motion‘ came after 5 years of perfecting the kind of band that we wanted to be. This is the album that defines who we are as a band and we couldn’t be prouder of it.”

She also added the following about the lyrical content:

“When contemplating what the future holds for one’s self, it can be quite daunting thinking about whether you will ever be truly content with your life and the person that you are. In the fast paced society we live in, it can cause many people to burn out and chase unobtainable expectations of themselves.

We are also now faced with the social media boom leading many people to be plagued by self-comparison and fear of missing out. All these distractions can cause one to dwell on what they don’t have and take for granted some the aspects of life that we should be thankful for each day.”

Tour Dates:

03/29 Manchester, UK – Rebellion (feat. Raging Speedhorn & Loathe)
04/27 Meerhout, BEL – Groezrock
05/10 London, UK – Garage
05/11 Glasgow, UK – Classic Grand Lounge
06/23 Clisson, FRA – Hellfest
06/28 Ysselsteyn, NET – Jera On Air

Hour Of Penance To Begin Recording New Album In February

Hour Of Penance are planning to hit the studio in February to begin the recording process for their new album. The effort is expected to be released later this year via Agonia Records.

The group commented:

“Prepare yourselves, we’re finally ready to hit the studio once again. The follow up to Cast the First Stone will consist of nine tracks written during the course of the last two years in which we put all our best efforts to give you another piece of extreme speed and brutality. We decided to record all drums at Bloom Recording Studio in February, while guitars, bass and vocals will be tracked at Kick Recording Studio. To take things up a notch this time, we’ll fly to Poland in March to do all mixing and mastering at Hertz Recording Studio (Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader, Hate and many more) and give you the sonic assault your ears are craving for. We worked harder than ever on every single detail of every single song, and we cannot wait to let all of you get your hands on our new opus. We’ll share more information and details over the next weeks, stay in touch!”

Continuum Premiere “Theorem” Lyric Video

Continuum, the band featuring current and former members of Animosity, Deeds Of Flesh, Decrepit Birth, Allegaeon, and Inanimate Existence, have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Theorem.” This track is from their new album “Designed Obsolescence,” which will be released on February 22.

Continuum told Decibel the following about their upcoming album

“The album title Designed Obsolescence comes from the term ‘planned obsolescence,’ which refers to a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so it will become obsolete (that is, unfashionable or no longer functional) after a certain period of time. That idea is, in the tradition of our debut album The Hypothesis, applied to a science-fiction background in which humans are commingled with machine elements and designed to live, function and then die out accordingly. This doubles as an analogy for modern civilization in which people are born, grow up, work, retire and die according to what is deemed to be normal and expected of them, often without question or opposition. It’s an age-old storytelling device used to persuade people to break out of the scheduled and mundane and view the world in a less bleak perspective, hopefully in our sophomore release we can do the same.”
