  • HateFX: New Video Teaser Available for 'Play it by Fear'

    Fresno-Livermore metallers HateFX, featuring Glen Alvelais (ex Testament, Forbidden) and G (ex-Dogma Chile) has released a video teaser showcasing the brand new track titled "Play it by Fear", to be featured on the band's new release, titled "Under Destruction", slated for digital release later this fall.

    Play it by Fear teaser video link: http://youtu.be/2xxnGcDifHM

    The cover artwork was created by by Chilean/Italian digital artist- photographer Claudio Bergamin, who has previously worked with HALFORD, Arjen Lucassen, RATA BLANCA, CRIMINAL, DOGMA and other bands from Europe and America.

    "Under Destruction" was recorded at Green Bird studios in Fresno, California with remote supervision of Chilean producer Javier Bassino (Estudios Bassino). Javier engineered, mixed and mastered the CD, which marks Alvelais' recording debut with the band.

    The video is being produced by Chilean videographer Juan Pablo Arriagada who had worked with Dogma (Chile) and HateFX before with collaboration from central valley videographer Enik Sleastak

    The concept for the video came from actual events that tie in with the lyric content of the song dealing with extortion, manipulation and blackmail and there is a parallel story that describes the key events of the situation.

    G (frontman) comments "It was important to have professional actors portray this very graphic storyline that describes how manipulation and extortion can get out of hand, causing emotional and physical distress to those involved and Enik (videographer) did a great job with casting the right team for the job, we are looking forward to share the final version for this concept video. The story blends in great with the music…We have enough material for an extended version that we are thinking of putting together before the release of out next single “

    The band is scheduled to continue playing live in support of this release including a west coast run before the end of the year. For more info and dates check www.hatefx.com | www.facebook.com/hatefx | youtube.com/user/hatefx

  • MIERDASTER announce new members

    Chilean thrash punk band MIERDASTER have announced the replacement of  the original members Martin Capdevila and Cristian Lueje to continue touring this second half of the year. The list of new members along with guitarist Claudio Melo's commentaries are below:

    "For a while Martin Capdevila (Guitar) and Cristian “Timmy” Lueje (Drums) decided to leave the band; at first we kept working as solid unit because we are a bunch of good friends and we thought to keep it that way until we could find the permanent replacement. Fortunately wasn't that long when René Ortiz (Guitar) and Orlando Ezquerra (Drums) came to the band, they have plenty experience and they are very closed to the band's core and we all felt that when we had the first rehearsal, we all realized that there was a great chemistry in between all of us. We would like to wish to Timmy & Martin the best of luck on all their future endeavors. In the other hand we would like to welcome to our new members".

    MIERDASTER is:
    Mauricio Almazan (Bass & main Vocals) 
    Claudio Melo (Guitar/backing Vocals) 
    René Ortiz (Guitar) 
    Orlando Ezquerra (Drums)

    MIERDASTER's 'La Furia' was released in 2012 via Digmetalworld Records and distributed via MVD ENtertainment group in North America.

  • Cranked. Heavy. Melodic. BREACHED Launching New EP 'Left Behind'

    Cranked. Heavy. Melodic. These are just some of the words that have been used to describe Toronto’s BREACHED.

    Locked and reloaded, the band has finalized their third EP ‘Left Behind’, which will be released on October 22nd with their title track and single hitting radio across Canada plus being available on iTunes.

    “We’re incredibly stoked to release the first single and title track from our third official EP, 'Left Behind'. The EP encapsulates the energy and direction we’ve been working towards perfectly. It’s a song that describes the struggles and frustration of moving forward from what you thought you needed." comments vocalist Bobby Noakes.

    The EP was recorded in between Canadian and US dates during the spring and summer months of this year while the band toured to promote their second EP ‘Revolution Sessions’, an acoustic version of their debut EP with a bonus stripped down cover of Alice In Chains ‘No Excuses’, which was also joined by a series of in-studio music videos.

    Creating an alluring blend of melodious, metal-tinged rock ‘n roll, it didn’t take long for Breached to start winning over fans with their live shows and five-song self-titled EP. The band’s tight harmonies and nail-hitting screams combined with overdriven guitars, intricate tempos and powerful lyrics provide a unique blend that audiences can’t seem to get enough of.

    BREACHED will also be holding their launch show for 'Left Behind' during Indie Week Canada in Toronto at The Rivoli on October 19th with local supporrt from Joy Arson and guests.

    The title track can be heard at the following links.

    “Toronto based Breached are probably on a hiding to nothing by choosing to throw their musical hat into the ring with their own take on a sound that has many, many big established names still kicking around in it somewhere. The saving grace for this, their second EP, is that it is a stripped back affair with a heavy acoustic feel to the five songs that we’re treated to: four originals and a not too shabby cover of the Alice In Chains song ‘No Excuses’.

    What is most certainly does is impress. The vocals from Bobby Noakes are right on the money and have plenty power and feeling. The same goes for guitars of Mike Diesel, the bass playing of Ryan Alexander and Drums from Neil Uppal. This is a true team performance and one which is highly recommended. If Breached are struggling to get proper recognition and support for their music, which it definitely deserves, then it’s up to us to get this one noticed. Buy or download, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. 8/ 10” – Powerplay Mag UK

    "They rocked the stage and made the crowd scream, wanting more...I was completely blown away by Bobby’s powerful pipes, along with Mike’s back up vocals and melodic/heavy guitar playing. The two of them put together make a beautiful duet. I loved Ryan’s headbanging moves and bad ass bass playing. The band overall has great chemistry on stage, and very good stage presence overall." - TheSceneMagazine.ca

    "the dynamic vocals and solid production value of this 5-track stunner are reminiscent of the great unplugged sessions of the 90’s. The talented quartet delivers each track with such flawless ability that I’m sure there is a long-life ahead for this band." - NewCanadianMusic.ca (Revolution Sessions Review)

    "I love this!!! It’s a bit mainstream but the energy is delicious. I already know I must see a live show by these guys. “Control” is still my favorite but all these songs rock." - Hip Rock Magazine

    " a fine slice of modern rock. Think Chevelle, Faktion, Submersed and those kinds of bands and you are in the right ballpark. The production is very good for this style of music with a nice sound to especially the drums. They sound huge!

    First out is Let Go, a nice start that shows us what we are in for here, complete with some screaming as well. Second out is the very Chevelle-esque song Control, also a nice song with a very emotional vocal performance from singer Bobby Noakes. Overall the vocals are great and so are the tunes. I am very intrigued to see what they can do with a full length album.

    I think that fans of tough modern rock should give this a listen. 16 minutes of very promising stuff! Check it out today!" - Melodic.net (Self titled EP Review)

    "Breached has a dynamic hard rock sound that would appeal to Soundgarden fans. This five-song EP features heavy riffing, powerful vocals, and a rhythm section as solid as the Canadian Shield." - NewCanadianMusic

    “They always put on a good show and their music is getting better and better. For a band who has only been around about two years, they have accomplished quite a bit” – Fridae TV (FridaeTV.com)

    “Singer Bobby Noakes has a powerful voice with a hard edge and excellent supporting band” – T Mak World (TMAKWorld.com)

    “Breached has bottled that delicious era of “hit you in the heart” rock and brought it back to unleash on audiences” – Amber Waves (Open 'Til Midnight)

    “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
