  • ALMAH - Unfold #ScarletRecords

    Almah was established in 2006 as a solo-project of Edu Falaschi (Angra’s singer at the time). After the release of the debut album ‘Almah’, the solo-project turned into a permanent band that launched another two records, ‘Fragile Equality’ (2008) and ‘Motion’ (2011). In May 2012 Falaschi announced his departure from Angra to concentrate on Almah as his main band.

    Almah have set ‘Unfold’ as the title of their fourth album, coming later this year on Scarlet Records. The album was recorded in São Paulo, Brazil and mixed and mastered by Damien Rainaud at Darth Mader Music in Los Angeles, California. The cover artwork was designed by Nathália Suellen, an internationally recognized digital artist from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil who has previously worked with musicians, writers, publishing houses such as Dark Moor, Random House, Penguin Group, Harper Collins, Simon&Schuster, McCann Erickson, Scholastic and Harry N. Abrams Books to name a few. ‘Unfold’ is a concept album dedicated to such actions and qualities as overcoming, firmness, persistence and capability to transform bad things into something good. The idea expressed by such symbol as the Lotus flower refers to Oriental philosophy. It’s usually born in a swampy river but able to break through dark and dirty surface, to grow up beautiful and full of life and get to fresh air and sunlight.

    “Insurrection play a groovy type of death metal that’s equal parts Dying Fetus, Decapitated and Lamb of God.”  - Metal Sucks 

    Death metal needs fresh blood and let’s hope this album inspires some youngsters to steer away from the crap and come back to serious business.” – Metal Made in Canada

     “This 5-piece monstrosity has struck again with precision, aggression and near perfection! INSURRECTION delivers a one of a kind album – solid and crushing from beginning to end.” – The Ottawa Epitaph

    Fracture is mint, tight and completely in your face. With well thought out lyrics, great aggressive riffs and a constant energy that hooks you to its sound; it’s a must for any tech death fan. It’s their second effort, and a solid follow up to Prologue, their first album. The lyrics, in both English and French, circles around the themes of society, politics and mental illness. Their vocalist, Stephane Jomphe, does a great job at throwing them at us like bullets and he’s also an incredible live performer. If you get the chance to see them live, jump on it. A good way to get in touch with this piece of art is by listening to its highlights. You better start off with ”Set The World On Fire” a catchy yet brutal (don’t bash me for using this term) song about human rebellion against our capitalist system, well written with a sing along chorus and a heavy sound, in short, a perfect starter. Then there’s ”Dérangé” which can be translated to disturbed or insane. This is surely one of my favorite, a French track about narcotic problems and sanity. Personally I also enjoy ”Fracture”, their title track, and ”History Repeats Itself”…If you’re the metal enthusiast craving heavy and vicious crushing riffs, or the typical technical death metal fan looking for some new stuff to enjoy. Stop searching, you’ve found what you need and believe me you’ll enjoy this album..” – Metal Storm

    “One of the things that attracted me to this band was their use of both local languages in their songs. I know it’s easier to write songs in english, and english bands seem to get more popular than french bands, but I feel like a lot of bands don’t even try. Half the songs on Prologue are in french, and half are in english, and it does nothing but improve the record. Hats off to these dudes for writing in their native tongue.” – Bloody Underated

  • TRIBUNE Streaming New Track 'Insectoid' From Upcoming Author Inspired Album 'Tales'

    L-R | Ryan O’Shea – Bass | Jason Brown – Drums | Bryan Baker – Vocals | Terry Anderson – Guitar | Shawn Culley – Guitar  (Photo Credit: Matt Neuman - Phrozen Photography)

    PureGrainAudio.com has teamed up with Vancouver, BC based metal band TRIBUNE to exclusively stream their latest track 'Insectoid' at the following link here.

    The song is from the band's upcoming nine-track concept album 'Tales' inspired by the writings of some of the world’s most renowned authors, including H.P. Lovecraft, H.G. Wells, Homer among many others and set for release on October 29th via Corpse Corrosion Music.

    Exploring a more melodic and progressive sound than ever before, but still staying true to the group’s extreme aggression roots, Tales, the follow-up to 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts, demonstrates TRIBUNE’s brawn and brains with a collusion of extremity and accessibility. As the band’s appetite for more extreme metal increased, bands like Carcass, Death and At The Gates began bleeding into their melting pot of influences, resulting in a fresh take on their fine metal sound, which can be heard echoing in the depths of TRIBUNE’s Tales.

    Album Pre-Order: http://tribune.bandcamp.com/

    ‘Tales’ – Track Listing:

    Chapter VII – Vengeance
    Chapter VIII – Red Crescent
    Chapter IX – That Bleakest Shore

    In additional news, Tribune will be performing at this year’s 2nd annual homeless benefit show Blankfest-Vancouver in support of the city’s Covenant House, the non-profit shelter that helps the cities street youth from age 16-24 who have fled physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse, along with those who have been forced from their homes or those who have aged out of foster care. Last year, the full-to-capacity event raised over $1,000 and over 200 clothing items for the city’s less fortunate.

    Tribune guitarist Shawn Culley comments:

    “Tribune is super pumped to be playing a show that will help out the local community. We’re always down for fundraising shows and we want all our metal head friends to come out and hook up the Covenant House with some clothing, blankets or even a cash donation. Tribune is offering deals for donations, so make one and we’ll give you a sweet deal on our merch!”

    This year’s event will see seven local Vancouver bands with support from bands from Kelowna and Calgary ranging in various genres of rock n’ roll, hard rock and metal, performing from 7:30pm to 2am at The Railway Club to share their tunes, raise awareness, funds and clothing for the city’s homeless.

    As the event slogan goes, ‘It’s About The Homeless, Nothing More, Nothing Less.’.

    Blankfest Calgary is just one of many events across North America inspired by founder Kenn Rowell, who has been organizing Blankfest in New York City since 1997 and has encouraged others to hold Blankfests in various parts of the USA, Canada (Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary) and Europe to help the homeless with the support from their music communities.

    “If prog-infused death/thrash sounds like your thing then wrap this around your ears and don’t stop…” – MetalAsFuck.net

    “Tribune prove themselves an imaginative, intelligent and technically proficient band on ‘The Elder Lore – The Dark Arts’; if you’re a Metalhead, you should definitely be listening to this one.” – Confront Magazine  9/10

    “The album is a big snack of metal and I like it.” – MetalGlory.de

    “the nine minute beast of an ending ‘The World’s Greatest Cynic’, which is like a greatest hits of Tribune’s capabilities in one swoop. ”- Metal-Rules.com

    “check out the relentless staccato machine-gun groove of ‘The Succubus’” – Bravewords.com

    “In 25 words or less: ‘Prog, Metal, Thrash, Rock, Doom, take your pick, you’ve got it all here…” – MayTheRockBeWithYou.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is a riff-driven, groovy thrash album with a bit of a melodic death metal/metalcore appeal. The guitars are sharp and bouncy and there’s a good amount of grooves and solos.” – TeethofTheDivine.com

    “‘The Warrior Mentality,’ my favorite on the album, shows influences from Black Sabbath and Dream Theater to Iron Maiden and Lamb of God.  It’s a very cool, riff oriented song! …The musicianship is extremely skilled-these guys are tight.  Production on the album is also a highlight.  Very well done.  These guys kick ass and will be a force to be reckoned with in the future. “ 4/5 – SkullsnBones.com 

    “The band has unleashed a powerful new effort entitledElder Lore / The Dark Arts, and it’s sure to gain Tribune a monstrous amount of accolades from all over the globe.” – HighWireDaze.com

    “On their second full-length release, “Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts” the band Tribune (who hail from Burnaby, BC.) decided to break into my house, steal all of my heavy metal collection and then craft an album that explored all the various bands I listen to. How else does one explain everything this five piece band throws out to the listener? Classic heavy metal? Check. Thrash? Check. Melodic hardcore? Check. Progressive metal? Check. Death metal? Check. Doom? Check. It is all here and then some.” – Heavy Metal Time Machine

    “Tribune is a rarity in 2012: a band whose members have molten metal, and not much else, coursing through their veins. Forget throwing hip-hop, rap-rock, screamo, punk, or hardcore-electro free jazz into the mix: Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is aimed at those who pine for a less complicated time, when Headbangers Ball was must-see TV, and Studebakers on Kingsway was doing booming business.

    Tribune not only acquits itself admirably here, but also implies that it knows the metal landscape has shifted since Iron Maiden and Judas Priest were something more than glorified nostalgia acts. What you get is eight songs that suggest a well-stocked iPod on Shuffle—assuming that said iPod is loaded with metal, metal, and more metal, none of it hairspray-scented.” – The Georgia Straight (Vancouver, BC)

    “The third release from this Burnaby “thrash/prog rock/metal band” pretty much meets its description. From the growls and frog ribbits that open “It Came From the Swamps,” there is equal parts straight on metal boogie only to break into hyper speed shriek breaks unexpectedly and about three bands in one by song’s end.  The group appears to hit its stride most effectively on the full-on thrash of  ”The Succubus,” with some particularly tasty vocals. Perhaps my fave track is “The Warrior Mentality” for its pulsing build to tortured screams and then an almost Alice In Chains-ish turn later on. If you favour heavy guitar lead workouts, this isn’t your cuppa. These guys get to the point and drive it home with maximum force and minimum flash.  And they really sound like they know their strengths and play to them.” - The Province (Vancouver, BC)

    “This is a top quality release;… their arrangements are verging into Mastodon’s playground with a fresher, more honest delivery clearly audible and some of the arrangements are of a quality that I would expect from say someone like Tool, and they are damn perfectionists, hence, Tribune have massive potential. ” – Brutalism.com

    “..the best thing about Elder Lore The Dark Arts is the music…traditional foundation and some nice fret work, this album is an interesting listen….clever and appealing …one album to check out.” – DangerDog.com

    Great sounding melodic death/thrash metal band that combines both classic and modern metal to create a new sound and if you are looking for a band that combines a variety of metal genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE “It Came From The Swamps” “The Succubus” and “We, The Black”.” – Variety of Death Zine

    “A force to be reckoned with, metal flows through the veins of Tribune one of the best thrasher bands to come out of Canada.” – DJ Metalgod - Mental Metal Show

    “An interesting hybrid of thrash and progressive melodic post / rock…. “Elder Lore / The Dark Arts” is a versatile full-length” – StereoInvaders.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts  has all the necessary ingredients of an accessible and unique Metal release for 2012, and Tribune are clearly ready to capitalize on their assets.” Vile-Views.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts has all of the great things you need to see in a band, the musicianship, the chemistry between the band members, and the great music. It’s a really solid record…fans of un-signable metal bands will have great stuff on their hands, from the short heavy stuff of “The Succubus” to the long epic proggy sound of “The World’s Greatest Cynic.”" – Jorzine.com

    ““Elder Lore/The Dark” is an awesome album…The album’s highlight is the nine minutes long “The World’s Greatest Cynic” with the awesome collection of riffs, melodies and expressional vocals.” – MetalKaoz.com

    “‘Man on the Outside’ is a great example of what the band is capable of … The double axe work of Anderson and Culley really shine all over and vocalist Bryan Baker is easily one of the most talented and diverse singers I’ve ever heard.” – MetalBlast.net

    ”This album is a perfect blend of pure metal, very well done!” – Quebec Metal

    “Trainwreck Architect has their own diverse style that is hard to compare to other bands and this album proves it. Traits of the Sick is definitely an album worth giving a listen to.” – The Scene Magazine

    “These architects of heavy pay homage to roots metal bands such as Dio and maple leaf legends, Annihilator, while adding popular loud sounds of today.” – Louder Than Hell

    “Tearing up the stage from the moment the first chord is struck, the room is packed and the crowd is just as revved up as the band. Note after note tears through the air and charges the crowd and the band with a fury. Simon Ouellet bounces off stage with a roar and flies into the crowd and they love it. The band members are everywhere wreaking complete havoc and feeding their hungry fans. Technically precise and experienced they want this bad and after all of this, they deserve it! They are a well oiled machine and to comment on them individually would only blaspheme their sound as one entity and deplete the value of their clearly hard work. They break out into a tune tributed to the 80’s metal scene and it certainly does the decade justice. As Simon puts his shades to his face we take a train ride back in time and this is anything BUT a train wreck!!!” – Ondes Chocs

    ”Bands like Crossitution and Trainwreck Architect are blowing my mind in terms of talent, performance and initiative (as they are both unsigned)…Any metalhead who respects himself must listen to Trainwreck Architect” – Bang Bang Blog

    “Let me tell you I had great expectations, since when doing some researches, I’ve read this on the band’s website: The meaning behind the band name is “Intelligently creating destruction and chaos” and we plan on putting that in your face when it comes to live performance. “ I can confirm they were not lying!..The singer’s voice is powerful and impressive, and the band members are full of energy. They offer Heavy metal with various influences. – Quebec Daily Rock

    “…full of energy and stage presence, Trainwreck blasted their signature thrashy classic metal tones out to the crowd, causing probably the best moshing of the night. Trainwreck plays with their whole hearts, and has a great sound as far as aural enjoyment is concerned. They are tight and I simply can’t wait to see how far these boys go.” – Montreal Music Scene

    “Trainwreck Architect has shown once again they feel like home on stage ! The singer, Simon Ouellet, opened the show by saying : “Don’t be fooled by the haircut, this isn’t an N’Sync tribute band!”. The band is really at ease on stage and their compositions are really catchy.” – Thorium Magazine 

     ”I really enjoyed their hard rock attitude, coupled with a more modern metal edge, and was really into “Midnight Bitch” – which is a really catchy tune.” – The Scene Magazine

    ’’Excellent set, super tight. You know how to deal with the public, you have confidence, you know what you’re doing!’’ - Bart Frydrychowicz – Quo Vadis

    “You Guys really kicked ass. That was tight, That was powerful, a fucking machine. Great frontman, and I’ve never heard a band introduced like that before. I love the band you guys are awesome.’’ - Vinnie Appice – Kill Devil Hill, DIO, Black Sabbath

    ’The whole job of a frontman, in my opinion, is…You wanna watch that guy, and you wanna hang out with that guy. I wanna hang out with you! I’ve never heard anyone introduce a band that originally and that well… You guys came to win. Fantastic job, one of the best bands so far in the contest. I do feel for the band that has to follow that… I have to be honest…” Jason Rockman – CHOM FM

     ”I really loved your punk rock attitude. I think the crowd reaction said it all. Greenland Productions would feel comfortable booking you anytime. You rock, pretty cool!’’ - Vincent Lafrenaye Lamontage – Greenland Productions 

    ”Well, I have to say I really love your singer; the way he uses to set the notes and the words is so cool! The best songs to me are Dream Pariah and Rabid Psychotic Relapse, because the first one is very catchy and second one is extremely heavy.” - Carlos Cantatore – Former Annihilator Drummer

    Inspired by life and charged with fast and heavy grooves, screaming solos and powerful vocals, Trainwreck Architect will bring you back to the roots of metal with a few surprises along the way.

    “The band is inspired by life,” explains frontman Simon Ouellet. “Many things I’ve done in my life can be compared to a trainwreck. The many mistakes I’ve made have put me in some rough places, but in the end, I'm the one who made those choices, which leads me to believe I'm an architect of sorts.

    Bringing the fun of live rock into metal, a Trainwreck show is pure entertainment. “The ‘tough’ stuff has been done to death and, at the end of the day, I believe everyone would rather be happy and party than be angry and stand with their arms crossed in awkward silence,” says Ouellet.

    The Montreal band, which describes its sound as “wreck n' roll”, will be releasing its first studio album, 'Traits of the Sick', this fall. Mastered by Jeff Waters of Annihilator, whom also makes a guest appearance with a guitar solo on the track 'As Killers Breathe', the record features an eclectic mix of thrash, classic metal and rock and deals with the idea of humans being human and never willing to be completely satisfied.  

    Because, let’s face it, there’s no such thing as perfection. It's impossible. There's a trainwreck architect inside us all.
