INTENSUS mastermind Eli Litwin talks about the track Outlast Robinsum: "This is one of the 2 tracks on the album featuring Tommy from BTBAM. He's the only singer on the album that wasn't in the studio recording his vocals with me right there so I had no idea what he had done when I got the completed track in my e-mail. Needless to say, he exceeded any expectations I may have had. His mix of creative vocal effects and brutal screaming fits the track perfectly. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out."

Hot News – Pelican: Announce West Coast Tour Dates And Festival Appearances

2011. jún 14, 20:00 :

Chicago instrumental quartet PELICAN have announced a string of west coast engagements this summer, ending a period of dormancy that has seen the band receding from stages to work on new material and a growing number of side-projects. Joining forward-thinking metal label Southern Lord’s multi-city The Power of The Riff Festival, which sports a lineup including luminaries Pentagram, Winter, Noothgrush, among several others, PELICAN will play installments in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle in addition to their own headlining dates in San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Fresno, and Portland. The following month PELICAN will make a select appearance at Kentucky’s Boomslang Festival alongside Swans, Secret Chiefs 3, Horseback, and many more.

Since 2001 PELICAN has presented a distinct brand of rock that draws on varied, occasionally contradictory, traditions of post-rock, stoner metal, and innumerable other styles, synthesizing a heady amalgam of soaring melody and dizzying distortion. As best experienced on their 2009 full length What We All Come to Need, the seemingly operatic compositions take on a life of their own, unfolding melodically and conceptually, as the four men are lost in performance, heads banging and feet stomping.


Hot News – Volture Announce String Of North American Dates

2011. jún 14, 19:57 :

In support of their debut Maxi EP entitled Shocking It’s Prey released in January by Heavy Artillery, Virginia’s heavy metal warriors VOLTURE prepare to hit the road for a string of dates throughout the U.S. and Canada. Furthermore, the band have been busy writing material for an upcoming full-length album as well as a two-song single featuring the tracks “Rulebreaker” and “Killer Angels”, the latter a cover track by obscure Swedish HM legends GOTHAM CITY. When he’s not busy gigging and writing with VOLTURE, bassist Ryan Waste continues to keep busy with his mainstay MUNICIPAL WASTE while still finding time to DJ an all-vinyl metal and cult horror film night at the Cous Cous bar in Richmond, VA on the first Monday of each month.

Dates are as follows. More information and frequent updates available at the band’s web page at as well as the VOLTURE facebook page at

June 23rd – Baltimore, MD @ Sonar (w/ Helstar & Acid Queen)
June 30th – Kingston, ON @ The Mansion (w/ Cauldron)
July 1st – Montreal, QC @ Katacombes (w/ Cauldron)
July 2nd – Ottowa, ON @ Mavericks (w/ Cauldron)
July 3rd – Toronto, ON @ Sneaky Dee’s (w/ Cauldron)

Over a few beers at a local Richmond watering hole during November 2008, the subject of putting a band together was raised between friends and fellow musicians Ryan Waste and Nick Poulos. A life-long heavy metal devotee, Ryan had formed a band in 2003 under the moniker of Immortal Avenger. Former members of Immortal Avenger including co-founder and vocalist Brent Hubbard and drummer Barry Cover would soon be called upon again to start a fresh project.


Hot News – Diamond Plate Release New Track "At The Mountains Of Madness"

2011. jún 14, 19:13 :

Chicago thrashers DIAMOND PLATE have released a new track, titled "At the Mountains of Madness".

"At the Mountains of Madness" is the first song to be released from the band's forthcoming debut album, GENERATION WHY?, which was recorded with producer NEIL KERNON (JUDAS PRIEST, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) and is due to be released on August 29th on Earache Records.

Listen to the new track now at (e-mail required)

DIAMOND PLATE lead guitarist KONRAD KUPIEC comments:

"All of us couldn't be more excited to release 'At the Mountains of Madness' as the first song off 'Generation Why?'. With the original video for this song nearing 100,000 views on YouTube, 'Mountains' is arguably the song most people know us by, and we want to give old and new fans the perfect representation of how much we've improved over the past few years. With this album, the band sounds tighter and heavier, while the song-writing is more focused than ever.

"The song is inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft novel of the same name, although we went deeper than the classic horror story of the novel and made our own social commentary present in the lyrics. As to our theme, that is for the listener to interpret and figure out.
