before the storm single

 

Idaho Rock Band Silent Theory has released the Official Music Video for their new single “Before the Storm”. Originally premiered on Tattoo.com. “Before the Storm” was directed by Jon Kuritz (Make Waves Entertainment).

“I had this idea that I was going to write a song about the calm before the storm in our country. Predominantly, the opioid crisis and the fact that we created this monster and have no clue how to stop it. It’s that helplessness that has forced us to wade into the waters of this storm without a way out and that’s what this song is about. Can we withstand this storm? Or will we drown?” – Dakota Jerns

Silent Theory Press2018 05 Web

In a society where new bands pop up every day, Silent Theory is here to set a new standard. Silent Theory was created in 2010 by brothers Mitch, Scott, and George Swanger and family friend Robert James. In 2014, Dakota Elliot Tyler joined to front the band. The Swanger brothers are from the Moscow, Idaho area, where they grew up playing music together. Dakota and Robert are from the western Washington area, where they grew up doing the same.

Lead singer Dakota says the guys are “like family” and they’ve made a great bond. Despite a portion of the group being brothers, they say it really makes the creativity flow having band members who aren’t related. From the beginning, the band has wanted to make music people can relate to. They want their fans to love their songs even more, every time they hear them.

The group started their journey playing small local shows to get their name out and their music heard. The band gained popularity and started playing bigger shows in the Seattle/Tacoma area, Spokane, Washington, and Coeur D’ Alene, Idaho. The band also got the opportunity for a much bigger show, the South-By-Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas where they played with bands like Metallica, Shiny Toy Guns, The Proclaimers and more. 2010 was a year of achievements for the band. The group made an appearance on MTV Cribs, where they performed their single “Livin’ the Dream,” headlined the world famous “Whisky A Go-Go” in Los Angeles, California, and signed their first record deal with Turkey Vulture Records. By June 2011, the band was headed to Rockford, Illinois to record their full-length debut album, Black Tie Affair, which was released in October of 2011. In celebration of their album release, the band played their first ever sold out show in the history of the BellTower Concert House in Pullman, Washington. After the release of Black Tie Affair the band toured the nation in the summer of 2012 to promote the album and the single, “Livin’ the Dream” which was made available on the video game Rock Band. Recently, Silent Theory released several new songs including; “Outta My Head” in 2013, and their most recent single and music video, “Fragile Minds.” Their sophomore album, Delusions was released September 10th, 2016 and they toured Spring 2017 in support of the album.

Through the years, Silent Theory has always had one constant goal in mind: To always be striving to better themselves. Despite challenges along the way, the band says “playing together has always kept us motivated; we’re all up there because we love it.” The band has plenty on their plate in the upcoming months and they’re ready to see what the future holds.

New Jersey based alternative rock band JUST 6 HOURS has released the official lyric video for their single, “One Way Doors,” off of their sophomore EP, Sober, which is out NOW via Moto Records.

“‘One Way Doors’ is a song about drug use and not being able to become sober, like going through a door and not being able to open it back up, hence the title, ‘One Way Doors.’ The lyrics use quotes from real drug addicts – Just 6 Hours

Player

Early Praise for Sober

“Jersey Shore-based Just 6 Hours’ forthcoming sophomore EP, Sober, finds the young band maturing with an angst-filled, metal-rooted, punk-fueled sound that will please fans of both Tool and Black Sabbath. Among the standout tracks is “One Way Doors,” which features such an emotional vocal delivery by singer-rhythm guitarist, Seth Barnett, it almost seems as if he is mistakenly trapped in hell and can’t get out. A blend of metal and blues guitar by Nick Marrotta adds to the intensity and integrity of the track.” – The Aquarian.

Meka Nism Releases Official Music Video for “The War Inside”

Florida based alternative metal band Meka Nism has released the official music video for their single “The War Inside,” off of their upcoming, as yet unnamed EP. Originally premiered on New Noise Magazine, “The War Inside” was directed by Jim Dougherty with creative direction from front-woman Meka.

The music video for ” The War Inside” is the visual representation of the internal struggles that some of us battle throughout our entire lives. From anxiety to depression, addiction and insecurity, we all deal with some type of inner demons that affect us on different levels. In the video, the story is one of self healing through the spiritual journey of the Shaman. Meka portrays both her own lost soul fragments and her own hero. She faces her fears by confronting them head on in each of her energy centers, which are portrayed by six butoh dancers. We each have the power and courage to face our struggles and to save ourselves from all that we are desperately fighting. The intention behind “The War Inside” is to help inspire and create the energy to empower others to take their own healing journey and know that everything we need to win our war is already inside of us,” – Meka

The Cambridge English Dictionary defines mechanism as ‘a mechanical contrivance; structure of a machine.’ Well, that dictionary will soon need a new entry which reads ‘Meka Nism: totally uncontrived, a new structure of metal music.’ Originally formed in 2006 under the steampunk-sounding name of Meka Nism and the Rusty Years; the band, now known as the more streamlined Meka Nism, has mutated into the awesome future-forming metallic behemoth it is now. Featuring a band firing on all cylinders and the most charismatic front-woman, Meka Nism have supported legends like MastodonGojiraThe OffspringLimp BizkitOtep and In Flames. The very diversity of their support slots speaks volumes for Meka Nism, they are a true 21st century band, building new edifices on what has come before.

Inspired by MetallicaJoan JettIron MaidenSlayerGhost, guitarist Bobby Keller describes Meka Nism’s sound as “powerful, metallic, aggressive ,melodic, and in your face.”

Bobby explains the meaning of the band’s name. “Meka Nism means a well-oiled metal machine with great power! With all of the elements, the band members combine, we make one machine.”

Bobby can’t wait for Meka Nism’s fans to hear their new EP. “The musical element is superior to any thing we’ve done before. We are ready to take the world by storm. We know we have something special and are at the forefront of something new in metal. Our lyrics come from a lot of spiritual influences, Meka studies shamanism and takes a very specific healing approach to all her lyrics.”

Meka Nism, live, emit “pure power and energy. We are a LIVE band, hands down. Our shows are packed and we thrive off the energy of our audiences. We take it and punch it right back to them. There is no let up. You can expect your neck to hurt a lot after our shows.”

Ornimental Release Lyric Video for “Love Thy Enemy”

Ft. Lauderdale, FL based metal band Ornimental has released the Lyric Video for their single, “Love Thy Enemy.” Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Love Thy Enemy” is available to stream and download online.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKE2HGC9yqA&feature=youtu.be

“Love Thy Enemy is about somebody that betrayed someone so bad that they could start dedicating their life to start a war with them. It could start as revenge with that prideful, arrogant person, but decided that the righteous path of love is better for both sides. ” – Ornimental

Click HERE to Stream / Download “Love Thy Enemy” Online

Ornimental is a band with a mission, a mission to put the groove punch, originality, and excitement back into metal, where it belongs. The name itself, Ornimental, comes from the Latin prefix Orni (to celebrate or decorate) and the root word mental (of intelligence or insanity), and true to form, Ornimental delivers an intelligent, possessed sound that celebrates the origins and foundations of hard rock and metal alike.

Harkening back to heavy metal legends like MegadethVan HalenMetallicaArch Enemy, and Pantera, famously led by deceased guitar legend Dimebag Darrell, Ornimental doesn’t rest on writing and simply producing crunchy, appetizing, complex guitar licks. Oh, they produce hair raising Hard Rock at its most fundamental level, rest assured, but the song writing and arrangement has a classical, even groove edge Blues, reminding the listener of a perfect marriage of Eddie Van HalenZeppelin, and Beethoven.

As if that marriage weren’t appealing enough, a deeper blues undercurrent exists in the band’s original music, paying homage to Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton, the skilled David Gilmore of Pink Floyd, and many other legends, yet Ornimental’s music has a modern influence which is subtly inherited from avant garde bands like DisturbedFive Finger Death Punch, and Trivium.

Ornimental was founded by lead guitarist Danny Perry and drummer Julio. Danny has been writing unique, intoxicating original music for over half a decade. Danny Perry’s admiration for Beethoven lead him to be the Lead Guitarist for the Miami Dade Film Gaming Orchestra which won an Emmy in 2016. By absorbing the classical structures of the masters together with his passionate influences such as Eddie Van Halen, Dave MustaineKirk HammetStevie Ray Vaughan, Dimebag Darrell, Jimi Hendrix,and Eric Clapton. Danny’s powerful voice is only trumped by his dedication to performance and skilled guitar playing. Danny has been offered music scholarships by renowned music schools.

As a graduate of the world renown SAE Institute in Audio Engineering Danny’s focus on detail to music brings you closer to the songs. He was born an engaging front-man, though, and has found a niche harmonizing with talented rhythm guitarist and back-up vocals from Ariel. Julio’s skill as a percussionist empowers the emotion you feel every minute. Topping it off is bassist Sully who brings a skill that resonates in his playing. Together they have successfully brought the band to life in the past few years.

Since rounding out the band, Ornimental’s popularity has skyrocketed, as the band has performed in the more chic, popular venues, and even being called on to play at the world famous Revolution Live. Most recently performed on the same bill as Children of BodomDeath AngelTYRNon PointHavokLacuna CoilEye EmpireSid Wilson from Slipnot with Keen & Sid, OverkillScott Soto, and more. They’ve had interviews with Horn’s Up RockNew Times Magazine, and even been featured on Blabbermouth Magazine. They had airplay on national radio and now a larger audience is demanding their music be played on radio. Ornimental’s goal is to take over the metal universe, playing in large venues, opening for the big boys like Metallica and Van Halen, and more of their many influences.

Upstart Idaho rockers Silent Theory emerge from the smoke and embers with their rocking new video for “Watch Me Burn.” The radio-ready rocker balances between tender piano moments and more aggressive jutting rock guitars. – Loudwire

About Doyle:

Facebook | Official | Twitter

Lodi, a small borough of Bergen County, New Jersey, is just over two square miles. There’s not much to suggest that the small village would be the birthplace of a world famous, blood-soaked form of music known as horror punk. Legendary acts The MisfitsSamhain, and Danzig all have their origins in Lodi, and something monstrous indeed lurks there. The poster child and originator of the genre, himself, has once again unleashed an evil noise on an unsuspecting world: Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein’s first release, Abominator, by his eponymous band, Doyle.

Released on Doyle’s own label, Monsterman Records, Abominator is a sonically thick and lyrically evil slab of metal that finds Doyle expanding in a logical progression upon the genre of music he helped create. Doyle’s first band, the infamous Glenn Danzig-fronted Misfits, helped create the genre of speed/thrash metal with their last album, 1983’s Earth AD/Wolf’s Blood– in fact the record has been revered as one of the blueprints for the genre by many of its most respected players, as evidenced by countless groups covering the album’s songs, not the least of which being MetallicaAbominator is not the sound of some punk guitarist gone metal- it’s the roaring return of one of extreme metal’s original architects to his blood-splattered drawing board.

Coming from a legendary band of almost mythological proportions, and having first worked with one of the most talented and respected vocalists of the century (the infamous Glenn Danzig), Doyle’s new project would need a singer with brass balls, cast-iron pipes, a suitably twisted mind, and his own vocal delivery style. Enter Alabama’s Alex Story of Cancerslug, a Southern fiend who’s sand-blasted scream opens the record, and the evil doesn’t relent until the ending growl of “Hope Hell Is Warm”, the album’s defiant closer. The man can scream and sing, and employs both styles to great effect, switching seamlessly from raw-throated roars to rough-edged, yet melodic, clean vocals. Alex’s live performances can only be described as unforgettable, disturbing and strangely addictive – a perfect complement to the already mammoth stage presence of Doyle himself.

The unmistakable sound of Doyle’s signature Annihilator guitar cuts through on every tune like a sonic fingerprint, starting with the snarling opening title track Abominator. The Annihilator’s tone is sharp as a butcher’s knife in the wrong hands and just as nasty- fans of the Misfits will recognize it right away.
On tunes like “Headhunter” and “Land of the Dead” the riffs are relentless, and if a riff could be described in emotional terms, remorseless. “Dreamingdeadgirls” brings a blackened-blues swing, and the doom-laden “Love Like Murder” shows a healthy appreciation for all things Sabbath. “Blood Stains” moves from primal sludge to ripping off-time thrash with ease. The album is just that- an album, a cohesive and well executed piece of work that takes the listener on a journey; albeit a bloody journey to places some fear to tread.

As befits songs as musically dark as Abominator‘s, the album’s lyrics are not for the faint of heart. Throughout the entire record, there is absolutely zero attempt to balance its evil with any sort of good counterpoint- penned entirely by Story (probably in blood), Abominator‘s lyrics are entirely and uncompromisingly dark. Music fans looking for feel- good anthems had best look elsewhere- those who enjoy strolling through the shadows will be greatly satisfied.

So how did this Jersey devil and crew wind up with a Dixie-bred howler? “After I had written all this music, I realized I had to get someone to sing this stuff- once I’m done recording guitars, all I can see is myself just playing that riff, ya know? That’s my thing, not lyrics and singing,” Doyle says, with typically blunt candor. “I’ve known Alex for a while, so I called him up, then sent him a bunch of the tunes. Two days later he sent me back ‘Mark of the Beast’, just like it is on the record. I said ‘That’s exactly what I want!’, and the rest is history. I only wrote the word ‘abominator’- all the rest of that stuff is Alex. He’s just crazy, man”.

It’s a match made in hell. But no metal band would be complete without a complete animal behind the drum kit. Brandon “The Crusher” Pertzborn (of Black Flag) delivers all the aggression and insanity necessary (and then some) with his exquisite musicality and showmanship.

So what can fans expect at a Doyle show?

“To get fucking pummeled, man. And then go home and ask themselves ‘What the fuck just happened to me?!?’, hahaha…” he replies with a laugh that this time, no joke about it, actually sounds evil. Loud, aggressive, and technically proficient, Doyle and crew are set to show the world how true horror metal sounds today.

So crank up Abominator until your speakers blow, check out Doyle on tour, and let the beatings begin!

Austin, TX-Metal artists Fear Control release their newest video. “Masks” is the latest single off Fear Control’s 2015 EP titled The Monster. Vocalist and guitarist Kash Sarkaria had this to say about the video:
“This song is about one of the toughest times in my life with a a long-term relationship ending and just coming to the realization that it was time to move on, whether we wanted to or not. For the video, I randomly found this location under a bridge in Austin and loved it so much that we did our band photo shoot here as well as the music video. I just love the juxtaposition of light and dark and the endless pillars in the background. We got it all done in an afternoon, despite 20+ takes. But we couldn’t be happier with the final result.”
