  • MALEVOLENCE Blends with CARBON MEDIEN

    The wait is finally over and MALEVOLENCE fans can rejoice onward as the band have decided to sign with the American label CARBON MEDIEN after a very hefty period of dialogue and negotiation. CARBON MEDIEN feels extremely proud of this achievement and the third release for the band, will mark the very first for the label. Says CEO Derek Silver, “I have been a fan of MALEVOLENCE since day one and back in 2003 I even had the opportunity to meet Carlos personally in the USA and since then we have been in touch. From the very first time I heard their promotional work CELEBRATION OF DYSFUNCTIONAL BECOMING that I knew in advance that they were going to publish the best material since their inception. ANTITHETICAL took a while, but for the better, as this album will be reckoned as one of the greatest metal albums of all time coming out of the Portuguese territory! We, at CARBON MEDIEN are looking for a strong cooperation on all levels and we hope our love and dedication to the band will garner them even more recognition than the one they already posses out here. ANTITHETICAL is a great opportunity for people to discover great music”. ANTITHETICAL marks the third album by the Portuguese act and it will be available globally from November, 22nd 2013 throughout the alliance of CARBON MEDIEN to one of the largest distributors in the world associated with INTERSCOPE RECORDS/UMG. ANTITHETICAL will be available in hundreds of online stores, mobile services and streaming companies all over the globe. To mark the occasion a third single from ANTITHETICAL will be released during the next weeks.

    About: Coming out of Edmonton Alberta Canada, All Else Fails is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, the band infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, Classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.

    A high energy live show that sets them apart from their peers has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Van’s Warped tour, Boonstock and opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.

    The band’s last release received world wide praise from industry publications around the world. With the release of the band’s most recent music video “This Burden of Life” in the fall of 2012, and its addition to rotation on Canada’s Much Music, All Else Fails’ fan base expanded dramatically.

    July 30th 2013 marks the date of their heaviest and most diverse release to date, “Fucktropolis”. Heavy with a dark beauty, this highly anticipated 5 track EP, the band’s 4th release will solidly place All Else Fails amongst the best in their genre.

  • UNBEING - Self-Titled #BLKCOQMusic

    It’s March of ‘06. The world is asleep. Everything is still. No one is aware that a massive shift in the planet’s tectonic plates has given birth to a juggernaut. Fate has set three individuals on a collision course, their union shaking the very foundations of reality and sound.

    Rising out of Montreal’s bubbling metal underground, it can be said that Unbeing have been through it all. Starting out as a three-piece, members came and went, two demos were released to an overwhelmingly positive response, the band won Metal Académie 2 – a two-month-long competition where the band impressed both the audience and esteemed metal judges such as Kataklysm to take home top honors – then decided to shake things up again. Taking the judges’ advice to heart, Unbeing opted to no longer continue sacrificing their creative liberties, removing vocals all-together to finally discovered its true nature in the form of a five-piece ProgEpic InstruMetal band.

    But alas, five years after the birthing cries of Unbeing tore holes in the fabric of space and time, individually and as a whole, they have overcome hardships, laughed in the face of danger and stomped on the charred corpse of impossibility. In 2011, the band released its debut full-length album before solidifying its name in the metal community as a five-piece outfit.

    Their album spanning 40 minutes of instrumental offerings that screams: There is no turning back, there is no mercy, there is only Unbeing is now set for re-release this September 2013 on vinyl, re-mixed and re-mastered , ready to be received again as a testimony to the group’s composing capabilities.

    1. Octo8
    2. 15 Years In space
    3. Structube
    4. Mercury
    5. Chuck Norris
    6. Interlude
    7. Versus 10 Behemoth
    8. Zomb!

    Album Line Up: 
    Jean-Phillippe Bédard – Percussions
    Sherif Maghraby – Guitars
    Anthony Grieco -Guitars
    Martin Labelle – Keyboards
    Alexandre D’Amour – Bass


    “After hearing it today, I have come to the conclusion that Unbeing is in my opinion the most promising underground progressive metal band to be coming out of Quebec, and until a band proves me wrong, I would extend that to the rest of Canada also. Simply put, the album is awesome and well worth the investment…Each song sounds as fresh as the last and the next to come. The musicianship of each of the band members is worth the mention whether it be Sherif Maghraby on guitar, Jean Phillipe Bedard on drums or any of the other members for that matter. The production of the album is also nearly flawless, they are giving us a really polished release, worthy of some of the best metal albums out there.” Metal Made In Canada

    “In fact, it was greatly refreshing to hear such musicality for a metal act. Everyone on stage was in full swing mode, showing off amazing chops but also the fact that these guys knew their song inside and out. Putting the bass player in the fore front was a great way to keep this veritable showman right there where we could see him play his red bass, and most importantly, have FUN while playing! Too many metal acts are too focused on the darker side of the “style”, when what the audience needs while watching a show is energy emanating from the band rocking out, metal or no metal.” – Between The Horns (Live Review)

    “Every instrument gets its moment to shine. The drumming is incredibly diversified and varies from fast beats to passages dominated by hi-hats or smooth interludes. The riffs of the guitars are heavy but not yet thrash influenced and have also some melodic parts. The bass guitar player proves his talent in short parts of the record but doesn’t dominate too much on this record, a little bit like John Myung does on the records of Dream Theater. The keyboards create a lot of dreamy, weird and slightly despaired atmosphere. This is a great soundtrack for grey autumn or winter nights.” - Encyclopedia Metallum

    “Cet album est définitivement un must pour tous les amateurs de prog. Unbeing n’est pas tombé dans le piège d’avoir un son recyclé ou trop ressemblant à un autre groupe. C’est une agréable surprise d’avoir un groupe local aussi différent et particulier. Ils en sont à leur premier album, mais je leur souhaite d’avoir la chance de faire connaître leur musique et d’aller beaucoup plus loin que cet opus hautement satisfaisant.” – Thorium
