Pitchshifter Release “EFKD 2020” EP

Pitchshifter have released a new EP titled “EFKD 2020.“ The effort, which can be purchased HERE, features several new versions of “Everything’s Fucked“ featuring members of Static-X, Fear Factory, Bullet For My Valentine, etc.

JS Clayden commented:

“I thought that everything was as messed up as it was going to get in the year 2000 when we originally released the ‘Everything’s F**ked’ single; but we’re two decades down the road and the lyrics are still applicable. We’re living in a slow-motion apocalypse. What better way to finally jockey clown ship earth off the bluffs than a re-issue of a 20-year-old tune lamenting the madness with a bunch of like-minded deviant provocateurs, and some live dates?”

Here’s the various guests:

– Tony Campos (Static-X)
– Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory)
– Jason Bowld (Bullet For My Valentine)
– Arya Goggin (Skindred)
– Zak Tell (Clawfinger)

SikTh Premiere “Cracks Of Light” Music Video Feat. Periphery’s Spencer Sotelo

SikTh have premiered a new video for their song “Cracks Of Light” feat. Periphery’s Spencer Sotelo. This song is from the band’s latest album “The Future In Whose Eyes?.”

Mikee W Goodman said the following:

“I have had a lot of positive messages from fans thanking me for the lyrics in this song actually. ‘Cracks Of Light‘ is a dark song but it does have a positive message.

Inspiration comes from my own battles with depression and trying to find light through the darkness. Some days people have to go through such sadness to find the happiness.

People learn a lot more about themselves in certain situations like this.”
