Papa Roach Release EMRSV Remix Of “Periscope” Feat. Skylar Grey

Papa Roach have released an EMRSV remix of “Periscope“ feat. Skylar Grey. The original song is from Papa Roach’s latest album “Crooked Teeth.”

EMRSV told Your EDM the following:

“When we first heard ‘Persicope,’ we were blown away by the song. We could just feel the raw emotion Skylar
and Jacoby’s voices brought to the track. We were super excited to get the opportunity to add our touch to it, and work with artists we’ve grown up listening to. We wanted to incorporate some powerful chords and uplifting strings to really accentuate the emotion in the song and bring to life its dance music potential. Getting to work on this remix was a dream come true!”

Cradle Of Filth Planning To Release 20th Anniversary Edition Of “Cruelty And The Beast” In Spring 2018

Cradle Of Filth have shared a new update on the remixed 20th anniversary edition of “Cruelty And The Beast.” If all goes according to plan, it should be available in late spring 2018. You can read the full update in the below Instagram post:

Dani Filth has been spending all week in Grindstone Studios with ‘Cryptoriana' producer @grindstonescott working on the remix of 1998’s 'Cruelty And The Beast’, which will see the light of day late Spring to commemorate the album’s 20th anniversary in 2018 e.h. Dani has piped up saying that ‘the remix is coming along fabulously, with a few weeks still left to seriously lift this to a new dimension. The real trick here is making the album not only sound better, but also in retaining the crepuscular atmosphere of the original release. Fans are going to absolutely love this and I promise that Scott and I have totally treated this monster with the upmost respect it deserves’. The album will also feature Cradle of Filth’s cover of @ironmaiden’s 'Hallowed Be Thy Name’, (which is in the process of being remixed as well) and the band have most definitely not ruled out the possibility of playing the album in it's entirety in the not-too-distant future. More important additions to the ‘Cryptoriana' World Tour' will be revealed next week, so stay tuned to this deviant frequency. #CrueltyandtheBeast #cradleoffilth #danifilth #grindstonestudio #cryptorianaworldtour #cryptoriana

Sinsaenum (DragonForce, Ex-Slipknot, Etc.) Premiere Lyric Video For “Dead Souls” Remix

Sinsaenum (DragonForce, Mayhem, ex-Slipknot, etc.) have premiered a lyric video for their “Dead Souls” remix. This version of the song is from their new EP, “Ashes“, which will be released on November 10.

Frédéric Leclercq (also of DragonForce) commented:

“‘Dead Souls‘ was on the list of songs we originally wanted to do a video for. Turns out we chose ‘Army Of Chaos‘ and ‘Splendour And Agony‘ from our debut instead but we knew that song had a strong potential. When we worked on the conception of ‘Ashes‘, the EP, we were thinking in threes.

We had three new songs, we wanted to re-release the Japanese bonuses for the rest of the world, so we decided to add another song from ‘Echoes‘… but to spice things up a bit, Stephane and I recorded new solos and asked our good friend Frederic Duquesne to remix the song. He did a fantastic job!”

Amaranthe Release Bliniks Remix Of “Maximize”

Amaranthe have released a Bliniks remix of “Maximize.” You can get that in various digital outlets now.

Olof Mörck commented:

“Electronic soundscapes have always been a vital part of Amaranthe’s sound, and yet we have tried very little in the realm of collaborations and remixes. ‘Maximize’ was just a perfect track for such an experiment and from the very first time we heard Bliniks’ rendition of the song, we were blown away! For a remix, it really retains the heaviness of the track, but from a brand new and fresh perspective! With an array of cutting edge sounds and electronic vistas, Bliniks has produced a remix that could both appeal to both a headbanger and an EDM-fan alike -and that is saying a lot!”

Bliniks added:

“For me, heavy metal has been a huge savior in inspiration for the last few years, and nowadays I have a massive urge to combine the elements of melodic metal with the heavier side of electronic music. Amaranthe’s ‘Maximize’ was an amazing experience to remix, because the original was so melodic and uplifting that I already got an amazing idea for a remix after hearing for the first time. Dubstep is one of my most common genres that I produce and the reason why I decided to go right into the remix with dubstep is because some of the modern dubstep is pretty much inspired by heavy metal, but for some reason that has been somewhat forgotten. This remix also includes some bigroom house and trap elements at the end of the remix, so it’s the most varied remix that I have produced to this day.”

The Faceless Nearly Done With New Album, Plan To Release 10th Anniversary Edition Of “Planetary Duality”

The Faceless’ Michael Keene was recently interviewed by Metal Wani and and revealed that the band’s new album “In Becoming A Ghost“ is nearly complete, and that it will most likely arrive in August release date. You can listen to him discuss that, the 10th anniversary edition of “Planetary Duality,“ and more in the below video:

Keene said the following [transcribed by THE PRP]:

“The current status is this: all tracking is done. Mixing is done. Basically I’m in the mastering stage. I kind of mix and master at the same time, so it’s kind of final touches of the mix and just getting the mastering tweaked just right on the record. Which is literally like, we’re talking a couple days here. The master will be turned into Sumerian in just a few days. And I was very explicit with them that I did not want them to set a release date until I turned the masters in.

Because on previous records there were release dates set and then things ended up taking longer and of course what’s the last that happens, the last thing is the mix. So the mix is the thing that suffered. On “Planetary Duality” for instance I essentially didn’t mix the record because there was no time.

They told me that if I didn’t get the record to them in 24 hours that we were going to miss street date. And I stayed up all night, worked for 24 hours. I had listener fatigue, so I couldn’t even hear the mistakes I was making. And I turned it in as was and then come to find out it sat on their desk for 10 days before they even turned it into the press plant.

So I had 10 days I could have worked on the mix and could have gotten it great, but instead that happened and now I have to live with it forever—well I don’t have to live with it forever because I’m actually doing a re-mix of “Planetary Duality“—re-mix/remaster of “Planetary Duality“—which will be hopefully released next year as a ten year anniversary. But anyway, all that to say, that in the next few days the record will be turned in and street date will follow shortly after.”

He also added the following about “In Becoming A Ghost”:

“It’s the most diverse record that I’ve made for sure. I mean, to give you an idea there’s a flute solo in a song. You don’t have any of that in death metal too often. As a matter of fact, the same guy that played sax on the last record played the flute solo on this record.

Actually one of the things that took… held the record up a little bit was that I was actually kind of having a hard time finding uniformity in the mix, because the material was so diverse. It was really hard to find a universal mix to start from. Because generally with metal—with other styles of music if the mix is different from one song to another, that’s totally fine—with metal everyone expects there to be a certain amount of uniformity. They expect the drum sounds, the guitar tones to be the same, etc., etc.. With how different the material was from song to song, it was hard to find sort of like a base mix—a universal base mix—to start from.”

He continued:

“It still very much sounds like Faceless album, it’s just even more diverse. And I even went into the writing process with a concept in mind of writing something that had the signature sort of technical death metal sound that was created on “Planetary Duality” combined with the sound of “Autotheism“. Somewhere in-between there, but its own thing as well. So, trying to kind of lay it somewhere between there and then also have it be its own thing and push the boundaries even further of what’s acceptable and still being able to call it metal.”
