         Toronto, ON metallers WHERE GIANTS ONCE STOOD have unleashed a new lyric video for 'Secrets', which is off their upcoming debut EP 'The Changing' out on Tuesday, July 30th

    Lyric Video - Secrets - http://youtu.be/n-_FaGZJM_I 

    where giants once stood - "secrets" (official lyric video)

       Shedding their skin of years past, when they were known as Absence of Fear and shared the stage with such established bands as Periphery, The Human Abstract and Stray from the Path. Reborn, re-amped and heading your way, WGOS are setting themselves apart from the herd with their seven-track assault on the senses, 'The Changing'. The EP hurtles towards the future of metal without ever forgetting its roots, fusing traditional guitar solos, technical riffing, screaming vocals and soaring melodic choruses with modern breakdowns and electronic samples.

    Check out their new music video for the single 'The Heavens Tremble' http://youtu.be/PtdQd3Zu8Mo

    Soundcloud - https://soundcloud.com/bornbrokenmusic/control

    BornBroken was formed with one simple mission in mind: Help the masses find a voice, a face, an “X” that marks the spot through the sounds of beating skins, metal strings and broken chords.

    After months of writing and hours spent in the studio, BornBroken managed to take every emotion they felt, put it to music, build off of past battle scars and create a record where listeners will feel they are part of the storyline. 

    On their debut album, The Healing Powers of HateBornBroken play out not only what life has given them but also what they want to give back: truth, integrity, perseverance, loyalty and faith in humanity’s struggle for equality.

    Interview on CJLO - Mike from BornBroken on Champions of the Local Scene - http://snd.sc/ZJDMTe 

    Revolver Magazine – Album of The Week – June 10, 2013 

    Named discovery of the year 2012 – Musique d’une nation

    Named discovery of the year 2012 – Québec-Métal

    Voted 2nd best show of 2012 in Montreal -Québec-Métal

    Voted 2nd best show of 2012 in Montreal – Ondes Choc

    “Montreal’s BornBroken simply go for the throat and never let up. Their debut record The Healing Powers of Hate is a no holds barred punch to the face. Combining the aggression of Lamb of God with the riffs of Pantera makes for a modern day polished metal release. A concept record based around mankind’s ability to overcome adversity and rise up against it, the message is powerful and thought provoking.” – About.com – Heavy Metal - Drago’s Dungeon: June 2013 The Month’s Best Unsigned Heavy Metal Bands

    “BornBroken may be the best metal band you probably haven’t heard of. Those who love hard, heavy, angry metal are in for a treat and may find a new favorite in BornBroken. Their latest album, The Healing Powers of Hate, is the perfect combination of heavy meets melodic and combines what you’d hear from Lamb of God, Hatebreed and Five Finger Death Punch into one powerful, melodic, fist-pounding metal experience. There’s not one dull moment here and any metal head should at least check this album out. Rating: 8.5/10″ – TheFrontRowReport

    “These extreme metallers have done an amazing job of combining death and thrash without treading on melodic death too much…The quality of the recording is also up to standards, including some gravity blasts that’ll have you shouting, “fuck yeah!”…This is a debut metal album of epic proportions. If it’s not the Canadian metal album of the year, it’s certainly in the running for Canadian debut metal album.” – 4/5 – Yell Magazine 

    “‘The Healing Power of Hate’ is a well executed album, tight and well produced, at times with strong hardcore influence. I liked the strong profile that the drums took, the guitar breaks were exciting and all the way through the vocals were first rate. The time taken to create it is very evident in the final result.” 4.5/5 – MetalTalk

    “This album is 44 minutes of pure adrenaline infused death-thrash metal at its finest. The Healing Powers Of Hate captures the voice of ‘the broken’ and grants an identity to the thousands of so called misfits that struggle to find a place in our society. Marching to the sounds of brutal bass, slamming percussion, high-speed guitar solos and violently powerful vocals, the broken shall rise.” – LouderThanHell – 5/5

    “The Healing Power of Hate is a great example of why Canadian metal is regarded around the world as being of very high quality: Because, quite simply, it is”. – GoetiaMetal

    “I was sucked in after the first couple of songs and if I had a label I would sign them in a heartbeat! I understand that this release was self-produced and if that is the case these boys are ten steps ahead of the game and will have labels banging through their doors in no time.” – XplosiveMetal

    “Pour percer le domaine du groove métal, tu dois avoir de bons… grooves! Et Bornbroken t’en sert dans bouche à grands coups de louche, toutes très pleines ! Groupe émergeant de la scène québécoise, cette troupe de Montréalais replace les pièces de certains puzzles laissées au sol par des groupes comme Pantera,Lamb of God et Hatebreed car en plus d’être métal et groové, on sent une petite corde bien tendue vers le hardcore métallisée…Si je m’entrainais au gym, question d’augmenter le volume de façon exponentielle de mon chest et de mes bras, c’est sur du Bornbroken que je le ferais!” – MusikUniverse

    “Musically, BornBroken are a more solid, and extremely heavy, lot. Simon Savard and Mike Decker’s surging, Dimebag Darrell-inspired grooves hit like haymakers throughout, aided by the sort of dry, ultra-punchy production Terry Date used to achieve such brutal majesty with Pantera, Unearth, Deftones and on White Zombie’s Astro Creep: 2000. The sound here is huge – especially for a self-released effort – clear and quite pummeling.” – Metal-Rules

    “It’s not often when you find yourself deep inside of a storyline with an album especially a Metal album, and this is exactly where you find yourself being drowned in throughout The Healing Powers of Hate. Every lyric and every song has a purpose and sheds the tearing storyline that is BornBroken. Throughout every well timed riff through the endless pounding of the skins and through each scream and Growl BornBroken brings you down to their deep hell and shows you their vision through The Healing Powers Of Hate.” – KingstonMusicReviews

    “BornBroken deserves broad attention. They’ve already made a very big impression in their native Montreal, both for their live performances as well as their music in general. I honestly don’t know that much about the Montreal metal scene, but I do know that it is getting bigger and more competitive. For these guys to emerge as a local favorite suggests something of their overall quality. Give this one a spin.” SeaofTranquility – 4/5

    “BornBroken’s Healing Powers Of Hate is a powerful album that falls in line with the likes of Pantera, Lamb Of God, and Hatebreed with some thrash inspirations from the likes of Testament, and Slayer.” – Emurg.com

    “I must say that BornBroken’s amalgamation of melodeath, metalcore and modern thrash works very well. It is well balanced and captures only the good aspects of these three genres, reminding us that, despite all the not-so-interesting bands that roam the three genres, melodeath, metalcore and modern thrash do have a lot to offer…Fans of Pro-Pain, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Machine Head and a wide variety of modern metal bands should definitely check out this potent debut album.” – 4/5 – MetalMusicArchives

    “What BornBroken have done here is create an album that ticks pretty much every box on the seriously heavy tick sheet, managing to put together an album which is heavy, melodic, dark, haunting, and yet uplifting at the same time. Representing the pain and angst that went into making it, this album will connect with your soul, and remind you of what heavy is.” – Loud-Stuff.com

    “So watch for it. Listen to it. These Montreal Metal Thrash-core compadres are definitely onto something different, and not only with regard to the local scene, but for Metal in general. The BornBroken boys are biting off as much as they can chew by creating a heavy-duty concept album, fusing the powers of all their influences and generating a sound that fluctuates between latter day Sepultura and mid-career Lamb of God.” – BetweenTheHorns.ca

    “…At the first look, the album looks like a collector’s item.”
    “…The Healing Powers of Hate as a sound comparable to the big names of the industry…I have the strong impression that everything was thought of on this CD. It’s a very well done album from A to Z. The Healing Powers of Hate from BornBroken is nothing less then a must!!” – Musique D’Une Nation

    “BornBroken is the future of Québec Metal, with 10 titles to discover, even on stage, since the group demonstrates an uncanny and totally uncommon, energetic stage presence. They have poured their guts into the making of this introductory album, their own monies and a wealth of professionalism, which must be recognized. Bravo for an excellent album that one just doesn’t tire of listening to.” – Québec-Métal

    “…le disque est marqué au fer rouge d’une intensité menaçante qui n’épargnera aucun tympan.’’- Bande à part (Radio-Canada)

  • ALL ELSE FAILS Streaming New Song 'Better Left Undead'; Releasing New EP 'Fucktropolis' July 30th

     

    (L-R) – Shane Tym – Drums | Barrett Klesko – Lead Vocals / Guitar | Seedy Mitchell – Bass/Backing Vocals | Mike Sands – Guitar (Photo Credit – Tyler J. Branston)

         July 30th 2013 marks the date of All Else Fails' heaviest and most diverse release, 'Fucktropolis' unleashed via Suicidal Bride Records. Heavy with a dark beauty, this highly anticipated five track EP, the band’s 4th release will solidly place All Else Fails amongst the best in their genre.

    The first single 'Better Left Undead' is now streaming at the following links:

    Soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/sin_agency/better-left-undead 

    Youtube: http://youtu.be/AgrZVm-QUFw 

    Vocalist / guitarist Barrett Klesko comments:

    "I'm proud to say that we have never made the same album twice, and this is no exception, easily our heaviest effort to date. This album is not only much heavier, but also much more sonically diverse. It's extremely angry, but it has this grave, dark, beauty to it as well.” 

    Fucktropolis - Track Listing:

    1. AntiMartyr

    2. Better Left Undead

    3. La Demencia Violenta

    4. Obedience At The Altar of Sacrifice

    5. A Most Unwanted Reprieve

       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.

    “What is also apparent on this third release is not only the sheer creativity of the group, but also its stone cold knack for writing songs designed to permanently embed in the gray matter…There is just something about the band’s songwriting approach; it seems so darn natural and effortless. On “The Oracle” nothing ever sounds forced, formulaic, or identifiable as anyone but ALL ELSE FAILS. Don’t let this one slip past your radar. “  – Blabbermouth.net

    “It would not surprise me in the slightest if you heard this group grace the airwaves from the obscure darkly lit, pubs of Gothenburg to the soundboards of our own local modern rock stations. It seems more than fortunate that these Alberta natives named their album The Oracle because these local talents have clearly seen the future.”  – Edmonton Journal

    “A Monster of a Metal Opus” – The Edmonton Journal

    “All Else Fails have delivered us a brilliant new album”  – Confront Magazine

    “The epic twelve track album [The Oracle] explores their most extraordinary sound to date. Ranging in themes from the apocalypse (‘This World In Flames’, ‘Rebirth’) to drug abuse (‘Fallen’), to religious persecution (‘Monster Eats The Pilot’), to being haunted by the sins of one’s past (‘The House At The End of The World’)” – PureGrainAudio.com

    “Obsidian Walls” is a colossal song” – Planet Mosh

    “”The Oracle” is a highly addictive journey that captures the listener from start to finish.” – SpazioRock.it (Italy)

    “The Oracle is one hell of a powerful album, packed with no end of metal elements, punk edginess and even jazz flourishes . One could make the standard obligatory comparisons to other metal records, but The Oracle defies all traditional categorization. The music is at once darkly visceral and starkly beautiful. In a world of countless “core” clones in the metal scene today, this opus stands out amongst the many. All Else Fails have realized their most compelling yet pulveringing album to date.” – Metalholic Magazine

    “For St Albert-based band, All Else Fails, music is not just an end in and of itself, it’s a means to an end. The trio uses its music to ask questions about some of the bigger issues facing the world, without necessarily drawing concrete conclusions. Preferring to provoke debate than provide answers…” – Vue Weekly – Edmonton

    “ALL ELSE FAILS is a brand of metal that represents brutality, melody, and freshness that is well captured on The Oracle, What Was, Is And Could Have Been.” WeLoveMetal.com

    “…plenty of gems amongst them, including “Twilight Of Mankind,” “Monster Eats The Pilot”, the crushing “Rebirth” and the symphonic/metallic based stand out effort “Obsidian Walls”” – Blistering.com

    “All Else Fails have crafted one of the most diverse sounding albums I’ve heard in a while. The Oracle, What Was Is and Could Have Been refuses to be pigeon-holed into a genre, and that’s why it’s great. Rather than sick to a straight formula, All Else Fails branch out into several genres and bring their sound into the fold to produce some incredibly creative songs.” – The Age Of Metal

    “When it came down to the track list at hand, I can point a few starlets that mesmerized me. I recommend on “This World In Flames”, both electric and acoustic, bone crushing “Rebirth” and “Obsidian Walls”, “Fallen” was a great treat even though it was lyrically heavy, and I even found the last parody “Robots!!! KOLTG” as cool. In addition to the names of the hits, I urge to take a deep listen to the rest while trying to notice the strong connection between the musical diversities and the strong lyrical sense. ALL ELSE FAILS did more than a fine job on those creations.” – Metal-Temple.com

    “The band, out of St. Albert, AB. plays music which brings together classical, progressive and metal elements, to create an orchestral approach to hard driving music” – Yorkton This Week

    “An uncompromising metal album the way they don’t make them anymore” – The Sound Check

    “These guys are wickedly awesome. Both shows last year, the guys tore it up. The CD always finds it’s way to the car on those long trips. If you weren’t at their last few shows, make a point to come out to this one. You won’t be disappointed.” – Baycore.net post by Jolt Entertainment

    BIO:

    Most high school friends can’t even stand to look at each other once school’s out, but in the case of vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key, they decided to spend even more time together after graduation.

    Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, they joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist  Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, a band they've coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

    Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed would be proud of and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

    With two full-length albums behind them – “We Couldn’t Think of a Title” and “Sandwich” - the band released their latest record, “Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D,” in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.
