From The Chariot's forthcoming release, Long Live
The Chariot have one of the most energetic live shows in heavy music, and this video showcases that. Shot at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA.

Here is tour announcement #2 of 3, this one for the metalcore fans. Two standouts from this summer's Mayhem Festival are teaming up for a winter run of dates. As I Lay Dying (coincidentally, who we followed around for a day on Mayhem) and The Devil Wears Prada will be taking out, on select dates, For Today, The Chariot and The Color Morale.
The tour kicks off in Ventura, CA on February 22nd and wraps on April 4th in Colorado. Here are the dates: (more…)
The Chariot has always been good if you really appreciate the hardcore roots of certain facets of metal. They usually present a great raw product, as well as that awesome sense of chaos with the math elements involved. However, a good amount of press has been done on their latest album, One Wing and how the band calls it their “weirdest” release to date. I assumed this meant they would take their style in a slightly different direction, like perhaps more math, or maybe something more melodic. But after hearing One Wing, I see that their statements are to be taken quite literally. (more…)
I got really excited when I saw Every Time I Die announced a tour with The Chariot, Letlive & Kills and Thrills, because that is an excellent package, built for fans to sweat it out in the pit. Then, I saw they aren't coming to New York City which was upsetting. But they are hitting a ton of "secondary" markets, so if you don't get tours coming to your area that often, this might be your big break to catch a fun one. Here is the complete routing: (more…)
It's been a while since we've done a comprehensive AV Roundup, and we have a great one for you today. New music from Soundgarden, Pig Destroyer, Gaza, Ghoul, Obey The Brave, The Chariot & Becoming The Archetype.
The first snippet of new music from Soundgarden is available. The track is "Worse Dreams" and it comes off the band's highly anticipated new album, King Animal, out November 13th. (more…)
The Chariot have just released a brand new song entitled "in" from their forthcoming new album One Wing which hit shelves on August 28th through eOne/Good Fight Music. The song is the seventh track on the new album and is typical of what fans come to expect from The Chariot. There is nothing out of the ordinary here, although everything the band does tends to be out of the ordinary. So the band's new album seems to be full of chaotic time signatures and strange noises, but like I said, that is nothing new for Josh and the crew. (more…)
A/V Roundup: CONVERGE/NAPALM DEATH Split Preview, New CHARIOT Song, Album Streams from HELLYEAH, POD, SERJ TANKIAN
Let's kick off the week right with a shit-ton of new music. We have your first taste of the upcoming Converge/Napalm Death split EP, a live video of a new Chariot song and links to (legal) full album streams from Hellyeah, Serj Tankian and POD. Let's begin, shall we?
First up, we told you about this upcoming Converge/Napalm Death split 7" EP previously, which will have 2 new Napalm songs, a new track from Converge and Converge and a bunch of all-stars covering "Wolverine Blues." Now hear your first sample of it:
Good ole Andy Williams, guitarist of Every Time I Die doesn't give a fuck about keeping tours a secret. He revealed in an interview with PunkVideosRock that the band will be heading out this fall with The Chariot, Letlive, and Kills and Thrills. Sean, one of my Livecast cohorts, just wet his pants. Get a grip, Sean! Here's what Andy had to say: (more…)
In all my years of writing about music (damn, it's almost a decade now..) never have I come across a tour routing as confusing as the Scream It Like You Mean It Tour. It's actually two (or maybe three) tours that run separately at some points and then intersect at others for mega-shows. I think? It's sort of three different tours, the two singular tours and then the third, combined Voltron tour. I am a fan of some of the bands on the tour like The Acacia Strain and The Chariot, and then not so crazy about others like Attack Attack! and Impending Doom. But despite my feelings, here is the really confusing tour routing: (more…)
A/V Roundup: Full Album Streams From HIGH ON FIRE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, JEFF LOOMIS Video, Silliness from NORMA JEAN/CHARIOT
It's Monday, and today is a big day for a ton of releases, and the first day of the work week for many. As your lunch break approaches, here is some aural and visual stimulation to get you through it:
High on Fire's new album is streaming over at NPR. If you're at work, it may be a bit harder than normal to enjoy this because you're not stoned. Unless you work at High Times, then you can enjoy this sucker to the fullest. Regardless, listen in full right here. The album, De Vermis Mysteriis, hits stores next Tuesday, April 3.
Speaking of full album streams, 3 Inches of Blood's new sucker, Long Live Heavy Metal is streaming in all it's glory over at Exclaim.ca. This one is a hell of a good time, and comes out tomorrow. (more…)
Why You Do This is a new documentary created by Car_Bomb vocalist Michael Dafferner. It showcases his band's struggle with trying to earn a living by touring and playing music. The documentary covers several years of the band's touring, concluding with their first big tour with Gojira and The Chariot. Throughout the piece, Dafferner tries to dissect why he plays the type of music he does. The hour long documentary also features interviews with Randy Blythe from Lamb of God and Richard Christy of Charred Walls of the Damned among others. It's a good viewing for anybody interested in starting a band that goes out and tours as it shows the reality of the situation. Not every band explodes and is playing arenas from day one, there is a struggle, which is greatly documented in this piece.
For those that want to obtain a physical copy of the documentary, you can purchase Why You Do This for $10 bucks at http://www.whyyoudothis.com.
Last Thursday, The Chariot had a little incident with security during their show at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA, which caused them to get thrown out of the venue during their set. Video of the incident has finally surfaced on YouTube; Guitarist Stephen Harrison recounted the incident on his Twitter: (more…)
The Chariot rule live! They come from that same school of punk rock stage shows as bands like Dillinger Escape Plan and Norma Jean, yet bring their own fury to the live show. I just remember seeing these guys with my jaw dropped multiple times at the visceral power they were giving off. It's always a fun time to see these live, and now you'll have a chance as they have announced a November/early December headlining run with the likes of Vanna, The Crimson Armada, Former Thieves and Listener. Here are the dates: (more…)
