ARTWORK FOR THE BLIND Release New Single
Fusing death metal, thrash and sludge into a sound they describe as ‘Death n Roll’, ARTWORK FOR THE BLIND is a powerhouse of extreme metal. Based out of Louisville, Ky the outfit formed in February of 2012 and have been likened to bands such as ACID BATH, SIX FEET UNDER, and ENTOMBED.
“Here we bestow a tale of a dystopian time. Where the only thing left to eat is the rich and elite. Welcome to The First Supper.”
The new single “The First Supper” lands ahead of their up-coming double LP due for release in 2022, offering a tantalizing morsel of what is to come. Delivering sludgy distorted guitars and pounding percussion, “The First Supper” descends into the depths. High pitched shrieks are contrasted with demonic low growls creating an extremely infernal sound. The atmosphere of the single is fully immersive; it drags the listener down into their haunting abyss.
Partake in this grisly feast with ARTWORK FOR THE BLIND and join them on the journey to their new release. “The First Supper” is certain to leave a dark and foul taste in your mouth that will leave you coming back for more.
THREADS OF FATE Release Lyric Video
Symphonic metal band THREADS OF FATE have released a lyric video for their stunning song “The Cold Embrace Of The Light”. The song is from their upcoming album of the same name which will be released via Layered Reality Productions on 11 March, 2022.
Band founder Jon Pyres comments:
“We’re very happy to finally release the first single of the new album, admittedly a very special track for us. It explores the darker aspects of despair, of delving deep within and facing your inner demons. It was an interesting time for the band and the new material resulted in a far more sinister manner than the debut EP.”
BLOODYWOOD Release New Single “Gaddaar” Off Upcoming Debut Album

A combination of thunderous Hindi/Punjabi Choruses and meaningful yet unforgiving Rap verses along with the ethnic instrumentation, makes BLOODYWOOD a truly unique experience.
New Release: Linn Willner – ‘Morro Bay’
The empowering track came to the artist when she was overwhelmed by her own thoughts so took the piano to clear her mind. The result is a cathartic offering that shows off Linn’s sweet and airy vocals as they float across a delicate piano line.
SCATTERED HAMLET Release New Video
Southern rockers SCATTERED HAMLET have released a lyric video for their song “Lowdown” at V13.net. The song is from their new album Stereo Overthrown which was released today.
The band comments:
“‘Lowdown’ sounds like a high speed car chase on a back country road. Mostly because we recorded it drunk on bourbon in the back of a box truck barreling down Pine Swamp Rd with no driver… in one take. Sounds pretty incredible, we know. But it’s just another day in the life for Scattered Hamlet.”

JUNCTION 28 REVEALS VIDEO FOR BRAND NEW, MESMERIC NEW SINGLE “EDGE OF HATRED”!
Following from the previous releases (the zestful “Suffocate” and the charging “Don’t Say”) of the band’s most recent, debut EP – “Before You Drown” – alternative outfit Junction 28 now presents video for the immersive “Edge Of Hatred”! Showcasing a softer and more melodic approach, the track brings together dense, interwoven layers of synthesizers, pianos, and clean guitars into an evocative canvas of sound. This allows the listener to connect to the heightened emotionality of the song, before the track leads inevitably to an explosive crescendo. Compared to the band’s previous releases, “Edge Of Hatred” is very much a singular song, as the achieved atmosphere is very soft and delicate, which results in a complex and emotional outcome, with the song covering many specific topics, such as trauma and people’s darkest thoughts.
