Signs Of The Swarm commented:
“Inspired by artists like Deftones & Northlane, we are proud to present Federico Ascari’s remix of “Dreaming Desecration” featuring our long time friend Meredith Henderson of VCTMS!
This project holds a special place in our hearts for most of us have been raised around drug abuse. We wanted to captivate the message behind the song for the lyrics are driven by our combined pasts. To those who suffer with the same tragedy, you’re not alone. Though this may not be for some, we hope you enjoy this piece.
With this release, we would like to acknowledge that this will be our last release with Unique Leader Records. After 6 beautiful years together, we thank you for treating us as if we were family. We will treasure our experiences and friendships through the rest of our lives. We wish the best as we push forward.
To every end, there is a new beginning.
Tombs have teamed up with Alap Momin (aka Oktopus) for a new remix of their song “Sombre Ruins.” The updated track, which is tilted “Sombre Ruins Nothing Remains” (RKGD Audio Remix), is from the band’s new EP “Ex Oblivion,“ which will be released on July 13. Mike Hill had the following to say about the remix:
“For years I have admired the work of my good friend Alap Momin a.k.a. Oktopus so it was really cool to unleash him on a remix. He chose the song and I agreed; the fairly abstract nature of the original track was wide open territory for a really cool, sinister interpretation.”
Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum, the band fronted by actor Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”, etc.), have released The Armed’s “Ultrapop” remix of “Ketamine.” You can check that out below. The track will appear on Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum’s “Ketamine Remixes” EP, which will be released on May 13.
The Armed’s Dan Greene commented:
“‘Ultrapop’ is more than a critically-acclaimed, game-changing, genre-defining album. It is a language. It is a tool set. It is its own vernacular. This adaptation of ‘Ketamine’ is an exercise in translation. And in the spirit of the dialect, the result is all things, at once. It is delicate and earnest. It is exhilarating. Terrifying. It is excessive and ruthless.”
Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum’s Peter Yanowitz added:
“We three are all big fans of The Armed and their album Ultrapop. It’s been on constant rotation since it came out a year ago. When we reached out to Dan Greene on Instagram, he was honest about how utterly mangled our song would get in the meat grinder of their immense creativity. We were prepared for something different, and boy did they exceed even our high expectations. For us it was a dream to have a band we admire so much collaborate on something we made. This is such an imaginative, explosive odyssey that they took ‘Ketamine’ on, so all we can do is sit back and tip our hats in awe.”

Imonolith (Threat Signal, etc.) have released Jason Van Poederooyen’s remix of their song “The Reign.” This track features Meshuggah’s Jens Kidman and it will appear on the band’s upcoming EP “Progressions.”
Drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen (ex-Devin Townsend Project, etc.) commented:
“We decided to take one of our most popular songs, ‘The Reign‘ from our debut album, ‘State Of Being‘, and do a remix of it as part of our upcoming Progressions EP, being released in March 2022.
We saw the potential of how an industrial-type remix could sound and we felt this song deserved to be a standalone single. ‘The Reign,/b>’ features guest vocals by the mighty, Jens Kidman from Meshuggah. He absolutely killed it on his performance and that is yet another big reason why we felt this song deserved its own release as a revamped single.”
He also added:
“The song is about how modern society tries to influence you and/or tells you how to live your life, when truly you should always do what you love and love what you do, not what others want. As for the production, Jason ‘JVP’ Van Poederooyen did a phenomenal job with the remix. It’s massive sounding and has a cool industrial twist to it. We’re all pumped on how this remix turned out!”
Senses Fail have shared Thoreau’s remix of their song “Lush Rimbaugh.” This news comes after the band previously announced that their new album, “Hell Is In Your Head,“ will be released on July 15.

“I got a chance to meet and work with [Thoreau], and we collaborated on some really incredible music. I was very excited to hear him use his Lo-Fi skills in order to bring a different vibe to Senses Fail songs. I see a very bright future for him and all his projects.”
“‘Lush Rimbaugh‘ is one of my favorite tracks from Senses Fail. I heard this one on my way over to meet Buddy for the first time. Typically I take things in a more chill direction… but for this one, I tried to keep the same amazing energy that the original had. Thanks to the team for letting me play a part!”
