James Hart commented:

“It was 1996. At the time, Huntington Beach had no shortage of white supremacists and we were always finding ourselves in a tangle with them. I was serving detention on a Saturday during the first couple of weeks of my senior year in high school. As I entered the detention room I took a shove from one of the nazis we had a beef with that carried over from the previous school year.

The hours couldn’t pass soon enough and as the bell rang I was able to catch him outside where I took him to the ground. Once again, I had gotten the better of him and exposed him and his hateful ideas to those that witnessed the events.

FUCK ALL THAT YOU BELIEVE & FUCK RACISM.”

Eighteen Visions Release Cover Of Vision Of Disorder’s “D.T.O.”

Eighteen Visions have released a cover of Vision Of Disorder’s “D.T.O.” The band said the following about that:

“We first heard Vision Of Disorder back in 1994/1995 when the demo tapes were brought back to OC by Excessive Force. It was unlike anything we had ever heard. The dual vocals were executed to perfection. When 18V were exploring new ideas while writing the ‘Vanity‘ album, VOD became a heavy influence when it came to blending the screams with clean vocals. We hope you enjoy our cover of ‘DTO‘. Thank you Vision Of Disorder for having a long lasting impact and influence on our music.”

Eighteen Visions Release Cover Of Alice In Chains’ “Them Bones”

Eighteen Visions have released a cover of Alice In Chains‘ “Them Bones.“ The band said the following about that:

“Alice In Chains have left a long lasting impression on Eighteen Visions and our music. You can hear AIC’s musical influence as early as ‘Until The Ink Runs Out.’ Their heavy, dirty riffs were infused with our early metalcore sound to help create something unique. And it’s no secret AIC are James’ favorite band as you can hear their vocal and lyrical impact on just about every 18V release. We hope you enjoy our take on this absolute banger of a song.”

Eighteen Visions have premiered a new song titled “The Wicked.” This track is from the band’s new concept EP “Inferno,“ which will be released on October 2. That effort is inspired by Dante Alighieri‘s “The Divine Comedy.”
