1. Shock Frontier  ‘Duress

The latest album by Shock Frontier, ‘Tumult‘, takes these artists into a new and incredibly brutal territory. While their 2013 debut, ‘Mancuerda Confessions‘, was received with plenty of kind words around the industry, ‘Tumult‘ adds a new sense of depth and purpose to the music of these two Robert Kozletsky (Apocryphos) and Kyle Carney. The veteran mastering skills of John Stillings and the brilliant cover-art by Chris Angelucci of NTF Design & Print add another layer of polish to an already exciting release. Delve deep into post-apocalyptic despair and the decay of humanity with the death-industrial gem ‘Tumult‘.

  1. Corrosion Of Conformity – ‘Wolf Named Crow

Corrosion Of Conformity started in 1982, first as a punk band and then became a crossover thrash metal band. They have been on hiatus and line-up changes many times. An official reunion was announced in 2014, when the band took a turn to a more southern/stoner sound. Their new album will be released on January 12th 2018 called ‘No Cross No Crown‘ via Nuclear Blast.

  1. Snuffed By The Yakuza – ‘Night Train

The punkish indie/alternative band Snuffed By The Yakuza made available a great new video for the new track ‘Night Train’ from the ‘Trippin’‘ released last week via Hybris Rec.

The protagonist of the video is a mime on moving rail tracks inside a tunnel, like you’re watching the rail tracks from the back of a train that is moving. While we are hearing the lyrics ‘riding on the night train’ and watching the mime making his performance. The available info for the band is little and the statement below is given to present the band on social medias.

Crime and punishment, salvation thru suffering.

Being a beat band, walking the street band, get in the backseat band.

Bad Band, good band,

A back from the dead band

  1. The Wombats – ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight

Sometimes the video may be better than the track itself. ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight‘ is the latest video for favourite Brits The Wombats. This one is an excellent tune with a more-than-brilliant video (what a twist!) that you have to see for yourself.  This one is from upcoming album ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life‘. And from this taster, it should be a great one!
