The band said the following:

“We are a Death Metal band. Not your average new wave of old school Death Metal band. We play Death Metal from the heart with pure emotional impact and a focused artistic vision. This is the music we live and breathe. Always have, always will.

We have all played in various other bands for over 25 years and we just want to spew out the music that we want to hear. When we get together this is what comes out of naturally, because we share the exact same reference points. We love “Seven Churches” and “Mental Funeral” for the exact same reasons.

We want our Death Metal ugly, twisted and possessed. We miss the urgency, intensity and “realness” in a lot of the modern Death Metal, therefore it is natural for us to stray away from the streamlined sounds of today, but rather focus on bringing sheer, natural weirdness and horror back to the table…”

Adrenaline Mob To Release New Album “We The People” In June

Adrenaline Mob have announced that their new album “We The People” will be released on June 2. This will be the band’s first effort to feature drummer Jordan Cannata and bassist David Zablidowsky (Trans-Siberian Orchestra).

The following was said about the album:

As the title, We the People, indicates there’s a political side to Adrenaline Mob. Throughout their years as a musicians and songwriters, they hadn’t stayed silent on matters significant. Whether they were masked in metaphor or flatly conspicuous, they’ve always poured their feelings into song. It was, as Orlando puts it, a form of catharsis. So, as they were watching the presidential campaigns, feeling the negativity—the constant bickering and finger pointing—they knew Adrenaline Mob’s next venture would be impacted. In fact, the first song Orlando began writing for We the People was the politically-charged rocker ‘Blind Leading the Blind’. “The title track is very much inspired by the past election year,” confirms Allen. “It touches on our society, here in America. The album title is a reflection of our times. The songs have certain particular stories that stand on their own. Many of them are also driven by the climate we live in today & some are about having a good time, being free & loving rock n roll. All the tracks have a personality and character to them.”

Lacuna Coil Premiere “Blood, Tears, Dust” Music Video

Lacuna Coil have premiered a new video for their song “Blood, Tears, Dust.” This song is from the band’s latest album “Delirium.”

Cristina Scabbia said the following:

“Right now I can’t tell you everything about ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’, as this video is part of something bigger… This is the core of who we are as a band: the sweat, the dirt, the raw energy. It’s our insanity and all of us feeling comfortable with it. I love how by Cosimo Alemà filmed this. The photography, the colors and the hints in the story are perfectly placed and it is the first time we are really ‘acting’. This video is only a part of a much bigger plan… stay tuned. Hope you enjoy this video as much as I do!”

Ben Bruce Says The New Asking Alexandria Album Is Already Written

Ben Bruce was recently interviewed by KaaosTV and revealed that Asking Alexandria already have a new album written, and that they are just waiting to record it. You can see what he had to say about that and more in the below video:

Bruce said the following when asked about a recent music teaser and if it is a good example of what’s to come:

“We’re holding our cards close to our chest right now. We’re not gonna give too much away. Obviously, that was music that we had written. Whether it makes the album or not, we’ll see. The whole album’s written and is ready to be recorded properly. And then we have some huge touring opportunities in the works that we are working on right now, so it’s gonna be exciting.”

Bruce also added that he wrote most of the new album in the studio rather than writing on the road like previous albums:

“But this album, though, I actually went into a studio. I spent months in the studio with [producer] Matt Good and wrote the album,” the axeman stated.

I was, like, ‘This has to be better than anything we’ve ever, ever written.’ So I spent months locked away in the studio, all night, all day. I used to go into the studio at lunchtime and not get home until lunchtime the next day. And my baby would already be awake, and I’d be, like, ‘Damn, I need to go to bed for a bit.’ For months, I was on that brutal schedule. But it’s been worth it”
