An official video for “Wait For Me” featuring Thousand Foot Krutch’s Trevor McNevan can be found below. Frontman Matt Brandyberry said the following about that:

“Being absent either mentally or physically is a difficult situation for anyone who has to endure it. Whether it’s being deployed in the armed forces, dealing with PTSD, drug addiction, or something that changes the structure of a relationship, waiting for someone to get through adversity in their life can be difficult. We all know there are people who stand in our corner and try their best to bring us to light, but for how long and through how much can they handle the darkness. Being in that dark place, I’ve had to ask my loved ones the question ‘Will you wait for me?’”

McNevan added:

“It’s always an honor to be a part of another band’s project or song that you believe in. We share the same goal of trying to defy the stigma around mental health, and I think this song is a portrait of that.”

“So much happened in my life starting in 2018 and is just now sorta wrapping up here currently in 2021. This entire period, especially during my mom’s passing, was a great reflection point for me and a time to dive deeper than I’ve ever been into my pagan roots.

There will be more to come ’cause I’m not done yet. I don’t think I’ll ever be. As long as I have breath, I’ll unapologetically use my voice.”

Knocked Loose Release New EP And Short Film “A Tear In The Fabric Of Life”

Knocked Loose have digitally released a new EP and short film called “A Tear In The Fabric Of Life. You can check that out below. Physical copies will also be available on December 6.

“A Tear In The Fabric Of Life” Track Listing:

01. “Where Light Divides The Holler”
02. “God Knows”
03. “Forced To Stay”
04. “Contorted In The Faille”
05. “Return To Passion”
06. “Permanent”

Frontman Bryan Garris commented:

“It’s a story about extreme grief and the levels a person is willing to go through to get rid of it. The story follows a main character through a traumatic car crash late one night in the woods that leaves his partner deceased, and from there you spiral with him into the depression and guilt that comes with being the cause of something so detrimental. This is the first time we really dove in and tried to create something sonically that evokes a different range of emotions and over all something that introduces tension and anxiety with a massive pay off.

The story is told not only through words but through the music as well, which proved to be our biggest challenge in writing. Lyrically this story ended up being much more personal than we initially intended. We started with the idea to tell a fictional story but throughout the process, I found ways to incorporate real feelings of loss and mourning, as well as anger and self doubt.

I’ve always been a very personal writer and this was originally a step away from that, into something more artistic. But in the end, it was just as therapeutic as writing a regular Knocked Loose record, and I think you’ll be able to hear that.”

Director/animator Magnus Jonsson added:

“I always want to create something that complements the music, works within its structures and hopefully enriches the experience for the audience. With a longer format around 21 minutes, covering 6 tracks, I knew this dark ghost story was a very interesting challenge to explore in animation. I took the story presented in the songs and anchored that into a visual world.

I wanted to create an intense nightmare, focusing on the emotional states of Bryan’s main character. I created visuals that bring the audience deeper into this story of a spiraling descent into horror and destructive madness — Taking a minimalistic and sometimes even abstract approach to many parts of the image making, creating unease and an eerie atmosphere.”

AngelMaker Release New EP “Twilight”

AngelMaker have released a new EP titled “Twilight.” The effort features two new songs including “Vengeance” and “The Great Grey Flame.” You can find a music video for “Vengeance” and a stream of “The Great Grey Flame” below. Mike Greenwood said the following about “Vengeance”:

“Going back the the roots of deathcore we present ‘Vengeance‘. We wrote this song as an homage to the bands and songs that got us into deathcore nearly 15 years ago. It’s got all the Old-school vibes; riffs, melody, and brutal breakdowns.”

Impending Doom To Release New EP “Hellbent” In January

Circa Survive Announce New EP “A Dream About Love”, Premiere “Imposter Syndrome” Video

Circa Survive will be releasing a new EP, titled “A Dream About Love,” on October 22. The effort will feature six tracks including: “Imposter Syndrome,” “Drift,” “Our Last Shot,” “Even Better,” “Gone For Good,” and “Sleep Well.” You can find an official video for “Imposter Syndrome” below. Anthony Green said the following about that song:

“This was the last song I wrote before I went into rehab two years ago. The song is about forgiveness and accountability and represents a sense of starting over for me. Scrapping the blueprints and building from scratch in every aspect of our life.”

Like Moths To Flames To Release New EP “Pure Like Porcelain” In November, Premiere New Song “The Preservation Of Hate”

Like Moths To Flames will be releasing a new EP, titled “Pure Like Porcelain,” on November 5. You can find the cover art and track listing for that effort below:

“Pure Like Porcelain” Track Listing:

01. “Ameliorate”
02. “Views From Halfway Down”
03. “The Preservation Of Hate”
04. “Gnashing Teeth”
05. “Do Not Resuscitate”

Guitarist Zach Pishney said the following about the EP:

“I think the EP is just a small taste of where we could possibly go next as a band. If ‘No Eternity‘ is considered a return-to-form album, then the EP is expanding those boundaries again. The coolest thing to me about the outcome of the EP is how extreme the shift in dynamic can be from song to song while still feeling like a cohesive listening experience as a whole.”

The effort’s first single, “The Preservation Of Hate,” can be found below. Vocalist Chris Roetter added the following about that track:

“I think we just wanted to have fun with this one. A lot of time, the focus for Moths is working cool chorus parts into the structure, so it’s a nice change of pace to have little singing on the track. It feels like a continuation of some of the more anger driven songs in catalogue and people who like the heavier side of the band will be pleased.”

All Hail The Yeti Premiere “Bury Your Memory” Music Video

All Hail The Yeti have premiered a new video for their new song “Bury Your Memory.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Within The Hollow Earth,” which will be released on November 12.

Frontman Connor Garrity said the following about the new song and video:

“’Bury Your Memory’ was one of the first songs we completed for this EP and I immediately knew that it would be the first single. It feels very much like a traditional AHTY song, reminiscent of our self-titled record.”

“Shooting with Brian Cox is always a pleasure. He took my idea for a visual concept and ran with it. It’s like nothing that any metal band is doing right now.”

He also added the following about the EP:

“’Within The Hollow Earth’ has been hiding in the shadows for almost two years, and now it is peeking through the darkness to shed light on a dim music scene. We cannot wait to unleash this on the world. The past couple years have been difficult for all of us and the excitement of releasing this has been taken away more times than I can remember. ‘Within The Hollow Earth’ will offer blue skies for this bleak world. We are very proud of the work and feel very confident that it paints a perfectly beautiful picture of how horrific life can be.”

“Within The Hollow Earth” Track Listing:

01. “Bury Your Memory”
02. “Headless Valley”
03. “Funeral Heart”
04. “Nidavellir”
05. “Cold Dead Leaves”
06. “Cry Of The Waheela”

Extinction A.D. Premiere New Song “Chaos”

Extinction A.D. have premiered a new song titled “Chaos.” This track is from the band’s new EP, “Chaos, Collusion, Carnage & Propaganda,“ which is set to be released on November 5 via Unique Leader Records. The group said the following about the effort:

“While the music world stood still throughout the COVID lockdown, the real world moved on in so many crazy ways and that’s what spawned this EP. People showed their true colors, both corporate and authoritarian powers exerted more control, lives were lost, brains were softened and both tension and anger mounted. That gave us an even more visceral sound than ever on ‘Chaos, Collusion, Carnage and Propaganda‘.”

The band will be celebrating the EP’s release during a November 6 show at the Amityville Music Hall in Amityville, NY. That event will also feature: Dying Wish, Lich King, Loss Becomes, and Electrocutioner.
