I'm going to be completely forward with you on this one, I'm really not a fan and everything the band said this album was going to be, it isn't so far.

August Burns Red announced their new record and a release date on Solid State Records! This might be pretty dang sweet… if you're into that kind of thing.
Heaven Shall Burn is a name that is pretty renowned across the Atlantic. They definitely have a good name for themselves in German metalcore; actually, they may have the only well-known name in German metalcore. But with their long career, they’ve been criticized before in sticking with their usual sound in their preceding releases without [...]
When you first hear a band name like Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, you might either get the reference, or groan at yet another obtuse band name more than likely tied to a metalcore band; perhaps both. If you haven't heard of them before, rest assured, the shoe fits. Pardon My French marks the band's second [...]
New England Metal and Hardcore Fest has long been my favorite show of the year. Among its many great qualities, one that stands out and separates it from other similar events: if you want to get a good snapshot of what's happening in heavy music right now, NEMHF is the best place to get it. [...]
It’s been a little too long since we’ve seen something new from Bring Me The Horizon. They’re one of the more respected names in metalcore today, and their fans have been eagerly awaiting a new release. And after some skepticism and controversy, involving switching to a major label and the evident tensions between ex-rhythm guitarist [...]
As the weather warms up and tour season kicks into high gear, we're starting to see more marquee releases coming down the pipeline. This isn't a good time to get behind on your metal… playing catch up later is going to be a bitch from this point on.
Coming right off the heels of their newest album is… more new stuff? Get a brief glimpse into Whitechapel Record #5!
Last I looked the economy was still in the shitter, so the theme of this year's preface is doing SXSW on the (relative) cheap. The main misconception that I hear about SXSW – even among fellow Austinites – is that it costs a fortune to attend. Yes, it's true that if you plan on attending [...]
Just want to get this out of the way up front… LABELS: send us your shit! We can't pimp it if we haven't heard it. This is the first week in 2013 where I've heard less than half of the albums coming out today, and I listen to everything I get at least once. Troof. [...]
After a pretty uneventful slate of releases last week – can we all agree in the age of Spotify and Youtube that live albums and re-releases just aren't much of a sell anymore? – the labels are coming strong this week, particularly if you dig your metal on the brutal side.
Metalcore done right! From the album, Messengers, in stores and online now on Solid State Records.
What happens when you take every bad cliche about metalcore videos and stick them all into one? Well, Attack Attack! can tell you, because they did it with their new video for Stick Stickly. I was watching Headbangers Ball on Saturday night (big mistake, I know) and this video came on (above) and I was amazed! It [...]
Complain and moan all you want, but a little post-hardcore here and there really isn’t that bad. It’s kind of like a palate-cleanser, or like eating your vegetables. Either way, I still enjoy it every once in a while; especially if it’s coming from a band with experience like Funeral for a Friend. They’ve been [...]
January is the dogs days of new releases, metal or otherwise; presuming everyone is still hungover from the holiday spending frenzy – one doesn't typically gift something as taste-specific as an album – the labels tend to withhold their better product until closer to touring season, which usually kicks into high gear around February/March. Well, [...]
