“’Screamworks’ is a song about people who make you want to SCREAM. People who would rather manipulate you to serve their own end even when you have a common goal in mind. The song is an expression of the frustration found in dealing with someone who has their head shoved so far up their own….you know. In a lot of ways its hugely cathartic for us and allows us to finally talk about past experiences bottled up for far too long.” – Glen Bridden – (lead Singer) 2 Shadows

RIG TIME! Releases Bold, Gritty Cover of DRY KILL LOGIC’S “Pain”

4 RIG TIME Dry Kill Logic cover single art file

Wisconsin based Hardcore Metal Band RIG TIME! has released their cover of DRY KILL LOGIC’S “Pain,” off of the 2001 released LP The Darker Side of Nonsense. “Pain” was tracked by RIG TIME! at the studio located inside the legendary Warehouse concert venue in La Crosse, WI. Mixing and mastering was handled by Will Hirst at Gate Four Studios (MindforceRestraining Order) in Massachusetts.

Player

“Our cover of ‘Pain’ originated from being approached about contributing a nu metal cover song for an upcoming compilation. We tossed around a few ideas and decided on Dry Kill Logic. When I think of bands from the early “Nu metal days”, DKL always comes to mind with the utmost admiration. They were a band that had that killer “nu” groove but always felt like a more of a hardcore & 90’s metalcore vibe. We’ve always been known for being groove oriented and very heavy, so this song fit well. We stuck to the original formula but still made it ours. A little more dirty, grimy and noisy. Since we’re all in a moment where touring isn’t an option, this was a fun way to stay active as we prepare for our next original release to come out.” – Bryan (Vocalist\Drummer)

1 RIG TIME Promo

“Limitless” is the conviction this La Crosse, WI outfit abides by. Deeply rooted in the DIY ethos, RIG TIME! is a viciously passionate and determined ensemble with a strong work ethic and a vital purpose. Forged in the fires of hardcore and sludge, embracing the groove of nu-metal and doom, RIG TIME! has performed in 39 states and Canada since 2015. The band has relentlessly toured across the US holding true to the idea of “All Ages Or Nothing” by performing at only all ages events and resonating their substantial live sound and stressing the message that live music is for all to share.

Vocalist/Drummer Bryan W. Fleming “…offers relentless rhythms with industrial precision as well as a smart beat changing sensibility” and Guitarist/Bassist Rebecca Fleming’s “…guitar is mean, saturated and dogmatically singular.” Outburn Magazine declared, also noting “…for fans of earlier, angrier Godflesh.”

New Noise Magazine said “Puncturing their blend of sludge and hardcore – with a tight embrace on powerviolence – the band kicks fast and dirgy tones, manifesting unbridled hatred.” and likened RIG TIME! to heavyweights Xibalba and Harm’s Way.

RIG TIME! executes a fierce live performance with precise and fearless transitions, always at astonishingly vulgar decibels. These two performers exhibit the force of a full band as they implement a complete Vocal/Guitar/Bass/Synth performance without backing tracks, never suppressing their magnitude of raw energy and emotion. The band is currently working on a follow up to the full length album “War” that was released on October 20, 2017 via Innerstrength Records.

RIG TIME! Live and in the studio is: Bryan W. Fleming – Vocals, Drums, Synths Rebecca Fleming – Guitar, bass, Atmosphere

Wisconsin based Metalcore band VERSUS ME has released the official music video for “Give Me a Reason,” the third single off of their upcoming LP, CONTINUOUS, due out 9/13/2019.

Player

“From the first time we demoed out ‘Give Me A Reason’ we knew that it was going to be a special one. Instrumentally that song just had a way of capturing your attention and we wanted to make sure that we put vocals to match. The song is about an having an addiction and needing to separate yourself from that. That could be anything from drinking, drugs, gambling, video games….you name it. This is our first “lighter” single off the album so it gives everyone a taste of the variety that’s going to be on this album. There is a song on ‘Continuous’ for everyone. Remember, pick up the album on 9/13!” – VERSUS ME

REVIEW: Fallen Fate Leave Their Concept Hanging in New Album

Fallen Fate are one of the newer metal bands to appear after the new millennium began. The cavalcade of heavy metal bands from the UK meant that metal was once again empowered. The thrash world mixed death metal and punk for metalcore to rise, and Fallen Fate were ready to plow their way down the aisle and spread their dark, heavy tracks to the people. Into the Black is Fallen Fate’s latest, a concept album with a gothic edge. Sadly, despite a creepy concept, Fallen Fate rarely articulate their story coherently, leaving a stripped-down album that doesn’t rise or fall enough to be dynamic or interesting.

Into the Black is a concept album about Vespa, a young girl who denounced faith in God early in life. Over time, Vespa is possessed by a demonic presence, who takes control of her life and kills her family, ultimately killing Vespa. The concept is something ripped right from one of those modern exorcism movies that get released every year like The Conjuring or The Possession, and while Fallen Fate tend to go a bit deeper than the films that inspire Into the Black, the story is still loose and the music doesn’t do much to present that story in a very articulate or cinematic manner. The band also intentionally leaves the story untied. By not explicitly detailing what exactly is controlling Vespa, the band wants to leave the interpretation to the listener: as to whether Vespa is truly possessed by evil or if her affliction is a sort of divine punishment for not following a faithful life. While leaving an idea open to interpretation isn’t bad per se, announcing that debate within the concept takes a ton of that fun in digging deeper and understanding the concept away. It’s like a standup comedian having to explain why their joke is funny after telling it.

Musically, Fallen Fate stay true to the melodic death metal mantra established by contemporary metal bands like As I Lay Dying and Lamb of God: brutal, guttural vocals with thrash metal musicianship, and while that’s not necessarily bad, Into the Black is certain to leave something to be desired. Vocalist Lee Skinner produces rough vocals throughout the entire album, so it already has its share of limitations. Rough vocalists, due to their lack of melody, are reliant on rhythm to stay interesting and Skinner very rarely experiments with his delivery. The darker, more ominous background vocals in songs like “I Welcome the Dead” and closer “Vespa” are really the only places where the vocals keep things fresh. They add atmosphere and a sense of presence, like something is watching from afar, but they are rarely used and their impact doesn’t give the album much personality beyond their immediate location in the track.

The musicianship, sadly, stays within its own circle as well. The guitar solos crank up the energy on occasion, but to compliment the creepy-as-hell subject matter, speed and melodic creativity isn’t the name of the game. The heavy rhythm section and low-tuned melodies are clearly dark (which is appropriate for an album about religious/sacrilegious conflict). The gothic tones and church-choir atmosphere are nice as well; it’s just a shame that they can’t shine brighter alongside Piers Donno-Fuller’s guitars. And the guitars are really good. “Last Rites” and (once again) “Vespa” are amazing examples of Donno-Fuller’s axemanship. The blend of ascendant, almost angelic solos with the crunching and falling riffs signify Vespa’s push-pull story of good and evil. It’s here where Fallen Fate manage to really paint a picture and tell a story.

Into the Black is dark, and frankly, it should be. It’s a concept album about otherworldly possession, but a good concept album knows that music and story should be entwined. You are telling a story through your music. Fallen Fate have trouble telling that story: instead of some deep narrative, the constantly dark tone sounds more like a one-act play that goes much longer than it should. There are no striking moments, no left turns to speak of and nowhere to really get the guts of their narrative out in front. Virtuosity clearly has a place in modern thrash/metalcore, but it’s how that musicianship is organized that makes Into the Black so underwhelming. Fallen Fate try to tell a story, but Into the Black only provides a setting. A setting does not a story make.

Vanna: The Few And The Far Between Hit Pittsburgh

Maybe you missed them during The Warped Tour in 2012.  It’s easy enough to do with so many bands and a different schedule every day, featured or not.  I was one of those chumps who missed Vanna and missed out on discovering and enjoying their music earlier.  Hearing the buzz and ground-swell beneath this band, it’s amazing that these guys are not bigger than they are, but this will change.  These guys are too good to not be headlining because they ripping it up everywhere they go.

Having been working at this since 2004, Vanna have had time to truly hone their craft.  After their show in Pittsburgh, where they opened for Norma Jean, I spoke with lead singer (since 2009)  Davey Muise who is just the most passionate dude and incredibly infectious to speak with.  The way that Davey connected with the crowd was so inspiring, it reminded me of my good friends Stick To Your Guns.  Davey literally went down onto the floor and had the crowd gather amongst him and emphasized how ‘he was one of them and a misfit as well, that shows were one of the only places he feels like he fits in and un-judged just like them’.  And I was right there with him.

From the first chord I was with Vanna as well.  A powerful combo of hardcore and metalcore, but with letlive. and Rage Against The Machine punctuation of funk thrown in, topped off with some classic punk.  It was intense from start to finish just as the crowd expected and totally ‘got off on’.  With the backing of Razor and Tie and hitting the road with the likes of their brethren Norma Jean, Vanna needs to be on your radar now, and you don’t need to buy any vowels to figure it out.

Go to their Facebook now to listen to what I’m sayin’…

and then go grab this…

December 17th – Preying/Purging

PRE-ORDER: http://www.allinmerch.com/category/VAN.html

“Preying” available NOW on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/album/preying-single/id771968979

We are constantly writing and jamming new ideas while at home and on the road. We had a collection of riffs and lyrics that we really wanted to put toward something, and the idea of self releasing a 7″ was born. We figured it was a cool way to put these songs out into the world and give them their own spotlight. Preying/Purging is a chance for us to try some cool directions out while progressing in the Vanna sound as well as give people some more songs to jam and hopefully enjoy.
Both these songs are personal and mean a lot to the band. Our hope is that you feel us on every level with these. If you don’t have a record player, go out and grab one at a second hand store or music shop, you’re missing out on some great music on vinyl.

-Davey Muise

Norma Jean Proves Just How Good It Feels To Be Wrongdoers In Pittsburgh

Maybe Cory Putman felt he had to redeem himself from the 2009 show at Altar bar in Pittsburgh when he went to kick a bottle and fell flat on his ass, but it’s more likely that Cory and the rest of the revamped Norma Jean have something to prove with Wrongdoers and their entire catalog…that they are here to stay.  Having a somewhat tumultuous history since their inception in 1997, Norma Jean have had their ups and downs, but stalwart members Chris Day (guitar) and lead singer (since 2nd album) Cory have really gelled with new members Clayton “Goose” Holyoak (drums), Jeff Hickey (guitar), and John Finnegan bass).  Their performance at Altar Bar 2013 went off without any spills, but plenty of thrills for fans, especially with the up close and personally intense nature of their showmanship.

Just before the show we got a chance to catch up with Cory who was very gracious to hang with us, especially since the band had been robbed just a few days ago in Chicago.  Our interview focuses on the positive matters in the band so watch as we talk about Wrongdoers, packaging art, family and the road, the bottle incident, and more…

Old school Norma Jean fans of course went nuts when debut record smash “Memphis Will Be Laid To Waste” was played, but some of the most impressive songs of the night (besides MWBLTW) were “Bayonetwork” with the snippet of “I Used to Hate Cell Phones”, “If You Got It At Five” and of course the encore “Hive Minds”.  Intense, furious, and bullet to the head like beautiful cacophonies of sounds and images onstage, Norma Jean are incredibly energizing to listen to on “tape” but on a whole other celestial plane live.

REVIEW: New metal comp from Sly Productionz brings the variety

The new compilation from the Chicago based Sly Productionz titled “Sly Productionz Volume 1” brings a variety of emerging metal bands into focus. This first release from Sly Productionz hosts a wide range of acts, totaling at 17 tracks from 17 different acts. The tone of a lot of this album treads into the Alternative and Heavy Metal waters, but there are also some Thrash Metal and Metalcore tracks as well.

Some of the highlights of this comp are the tracks from Fist To The Sky, Like A Storm, Psychotic Daze, Punch Cabbie, and Emergent. The album opens with a Trash Metal piece from Fist To The Sky the blast away at full tilt the whole track through. Like A Storm takes the second track into Alt Metal territory with accessible lyrics and an impressively technical and industrial tinged breakdown towards the end. Psychotic Daze keep things moving with their riff laden speed metal track “Ride This Bullet Home”. Punch Cabbie brings the Metalcore mayhem to light with their heavy and vocally System of a Down-esque contribution “Revenant”. Wrapping things up are two dirt-rocking, grooving tracks from the bands Hollywood Dirtbags and Hot Dang!, which create a very interesting bookend to the rest of the sound and feel of the compilation.

In all, this is a solid preliminary release from Sly Productionz. It shows a lot of potential for future recordings from the artists included, as well as new artists to come.

Losing the Legacy: Her Dying Regret’s Untapped Potential

Very much like hair metal, post-grunge and nu-metal before it, metalcore is an underwhelming genre. It’s nothing particularly bad; it’s just oversaturated. Very few bands have been able to move beyond those screaming vocals and grinding riffs; for every Killswitch Engage or Underoath we see, we see hundreds of slapped-together outfits plagued by repetition and uninvention. The bands keep churning, but here comes Her Dying Regret, a metalcore band from Reading, United Kingdom with an urge to continue the genre’s trail of circle pits and fists in the air. The band’s newest record, Legacy, is a thoroughly disappointing effort not in its overall quality, but in the fact that every pristine moment of wonderful evolutionary potential is buried under the same metalcore tropes we’ve seen for the last 10+ years.

The fundamentals of the love-it-or-hate-it genre of metalcore are clear as day on Her Dying Regret’s newest record. You have your rough, screaming vocals. You have your crunchy guitar riffs. You have your heavy, pounding rhythm department. It’s all there, checked off the bulleted list of genre mainstays. For what Her Dying Regret does, it does without much falter. None of the members do their job particularly poorly. Legacy is an intense record, one that feels tuned for getting a crowd going in a filthy dive in your local town. It’s not epic, nor is it bombastic, but it’s aggressive.

Metalcore’s greatest weapon has always been the mix of screaming and clean vocals, and while you do see some shockingly refined examples of that on Legacy, Her Dying Regret still seems too focused on the brutality of rough vocals, at least during the first half of the album. The brief moments of cleanly vocalized melody like in the surprisingly majestic chorus of “The Shallow” clear the air of the heavier growls that seem to permeate the first two full tracks. The title track possesses some wild tempo changes, great changes in rhythms and some awesome exchanges between screaming and clean vocals. The guitar lines are also very toned and clear, harkening back to the works of prog metal band Between the Buried and Me. The very surprising key of the closer “The Filthy Truth” is uplifting, despite having the same growls and grunts heard throughout the entire album, closing out with a battlecry of sorts before the album’s end.

But Her Dying Regret doesn’t expand upon the amazing dynamics and experimentation of “Legacy” and “The Filthy Truth,” still feeling content with heaviness over creativity. The musicianship is definitely there, but it’s static, trapped in an obnoxiously settled loop that never branches out to new ideas. The rhythms are thunderous (especially when the double bass pedals make their appearances) and the chugging guitars confidently bring on the weight and the grind. However, Legacy is not an effort made in self-invention. It rarely emits an ambitious vibe and constantly uses the same tropes heard in countless other bands in the genre. The moments of evolution are big enough to be noticed, but not focused enough to bring the album to anything above the established average.

Metalcore is easily one of the hardest genres to stand out in these days. So many bands are appearing and disappearing from the scene that finding a truly original gem is like searching for a needle in a haystack. Her Dying Regret’s Legacy is no gem; it’s a straightforward metalcore record with every bit of personality you’d expect from the genre, for better or for worse. What’s especially crushing is that there are examples of melody, experimentation and captivating distinctiveness throughout the album: “The Shallow” and “The Filthy Truth” are stepping stones to making Her Dying Regret stand out instead of fading into the background cluttered with posters of All That Remains and Blessthefall. If Her Dying Regret want to really distinguish themselves from their countless peers, their next album needs a kicker. This is a band that (unlike many other metalcore bands) has true, untapped potential, but right now, they just haven’t dug deep enough. Legacy is the cap on that well.

Her Dying Regret Announce New EP ‘Legacy’

Her Dying Regret Announce New EP ‘Legacy’

‘Heartfelt, passionate and heavy’ is how metalcore six-piece, Her Dying Regret describe their new EP ‘Legacy’ which will be self-released this September 19th.

Following up from their debut EP ‘The Siren’ [2012] which was a dramatic introduction to the Reading based band, ‘Legacy’, recorded at Avenue Studios, Camberley with producer Daniel Kerr shows a new side to the band and the direction they want to go in musically following the release of the first EP. “We want that to be a distant memory and for ‘Legacy’ to be what we’re remembered for”, says guitarist Craig Mayor.

“On ‘Legacy’ the lyrical content and vocal style is very different as we have two vocalists providing a new dynamic that allows us to be more creative and versatile, we’ve also taken some elements out of different sub genres of metal to fuse it with our own sound to create something different.”

The hourglass inspired artwork designed by Abyss Art’s Vincent Bolar is an important addition to the feel of ‘Legacy’ furthers Craig. “There has a lot of emphasis on time and a few songs on our EP have the message of making the most of the time you have, the hourglass represents lifespan, the EP almost has a seize the day kind of theme to it.”

Frankie Palmeri of Emmure is Ready For Mayhem…the PGHMUSICMAG interview

Frankie Palmeri is no stranger to controversy.  His band Emmure (The band’s name is a reference to immurement, a form of execution) has been lighting up stages since 2003 with their own brand of metalcore, or brocore, if you will, with edgy lyrics and metal style music mixed with breakdowns, rap, spoken word, and an overall heavily aggressive beat that goes straight for the jugular.  At the helm as the singer and spokesperson, Palmeri has often incited a lot of controversial press due to t-shirts that referenced Columbine, to commonly using homophobic and racist words like ‘faggot’ and ‘nigger’ in social outlets, as well as coming off as a general hard ass.  Feuds with bands like The Atlas Moth and blogs like Metal Injection only serve to further debate about Emmure and their leader.

2013 looks like a big year in store for Emmure regardless.  With a prime spot on The Rockstar Mayhem Festival and the possibility of a new record to accompany their new contract with Victory Records, Frankie and crew look to further their quest to put out their brand of music whether you dig it or not.  Pittsburgh Music Magazine caught up with Frankie as he and the band recently got back from Russia where he was electrocuted  May 7th (see link for video) on stage.  Although Frankie wasn’t too keen on talking about the incident he did talk to us about festival shows such as Mayhem, the vibe of their performance, understanding Frankie himself, bands creating polarity, the disappointment with 2012’s Slave to the Game, the Emmure writing process, and staying sane on the road…

Crossfaith Announces US Tour

Unique in their home country of Japan, CROSSFAITH combine metalcore, hardcore, samples and electronica to create groundbreaking music that transcends genres. Their 2009 debut album ‘The Artificial Theory For The Dramatic Beauty’ (Zestone Records) served as the catalyst which kick-started the Japanese screamo / metalcore scene and they have been at the top of their game ever since.

It didn’t take long for the bug to catch – soon after their debut release the band found themselves opening for a diverse set of acts such as Machine Head, Hatebreed, August burns Red, Piece The Veil, blessthefall and Alesana to name but a few before playing to thousands of fans at the prestigious Loud Park Festival in Japan.2010 saw the phenomenon spread west – ‘The Artificial Theory…’ received a European release on Gan-Shin records and was met with critical acclaim throughout. With an unstoppable work ethic the band hit the studio to record their sophomore release ‘The Dream, The Space’ with producer Andrew Wade (who’s credits include A Day To Remember). Released in Japan in April 2011, the band took to the road to promote the record, playing to 10,000 fans at Summer Sonic festival which helped garner interest from infamous US label Tragic Hero. Soon the band toured outside of Japan for the first time, opening for Parkway Drive across China and Alesana in South Asia.

After blowing crowds away on their debut UK tour in support of ‘Of Mice & Men’, the band return to the UK on November 10th as part of the Vans Warped Tour at London’s Alexandra Palace – while in the meantime making their mark in the rest of the World.

Recorded with the legendary ‘Machine’ (Lamb of God/Everytime I Die/Four Year Strong) in New York; Crossfaith have released their brand new ‘Zion’ EP Worldwide featuring 6 tracks of breakneck, electro-infused energy and invention.

AP Tour 2012 Stops in Pittsburgh at The Altar Bar

The Alternative Press Tour has become a metalcore/alt-punk tradition since 2007 and has birthed the careers of many a band who needed just that little bit of exposure to the masses to gain new audiences and recognition. The lineup for 2012 was filled with talent that has risen among the ranks: Miss May I, The Ghost Inside, Like Moths to Flames, The Amity Affliction, and Glass Cloud filled out a packed roster. Last Tuesday, November 20, the tour stopped in Pittsburgh at The Altar Bar in The Strip District to continue the tradition.
All the bands put on stellar performances for a crowd that was waiting at the door hours before they would open. The circle pits started early and continued late, never seeming to end, blending bodies bruising one another to their delight. Besides the headliners, Miss May I, who performed an incredibly heavy set that really shows their growth and mature direction, the standouts of the night were The Amity Affliction and Like Moths to Flames.
The AP Tour may have come to a close as you read this, but look out for these bands to continue to tour throughout the next year, stay tuned to Pittsburgh Music Magazine for updates…

MY HEART TO FEAR Release Lyric Video for “Dear Mr. White”

Pennsylvania metalers MY HEART TO FEAR are set to release their Solid State Records debut, Lost Between Brilliance and Insanity, December 4th. Through a partnership with Hot Topic, physical copies of the release will be exclusively found in any of the chain’s more than 600 stores, while the digital release will hit all traditional digital outlets.

Building anticipation for the EP, the band has released a lyric video for “Dear Mr. White,” a track that represents the band’s approach on Lost Between… – technical riffs, swaggering vocals and sky-high choruses, elements that helped MY HEART TO FEAR build its fervent fanbase over several self-released efforts.

The Williamsport, PA-based act hails from the same geographic region and musical circles that spawned a number of metalcore successes in recent years – most notably genre giants AUGUST BURNS RED, in addition to the likes of TEXAS IN JULY (Equal Vision) and THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE (eOne Entertainment). While a less confident band may look to steal a page or two out of those artists’ playbooks, MY HEART TO FEAR are intent on forging their own sound.

“When we write music we don’t stick to any one formula,” explains vocalist Trevor Pool. “We don’t write to please a certain group of people or to fit into specific genres. Nor do we sit down with a preconceived idea of what a song should or should not sound like. Instead we allow the music itself to reveal subconscious and spiritual paths. Rather than deriving inspiration solely from music, we find influence in the world around us and aim to transpose these non-musical entities into the musical aspects of a song.”

For MY HEART TO FEAR, their music and their career are built on four pillars of support that have helped the band push on and persevere: Family. Faith. Pride. Brotherhood. It’s a saying that has become something of a mantra for the band and demonstrates their belief that, for as much as they believe in their own abilities, they wouldn’t be where they are without the support of others.

Pittsburgh Punks August Ruins Make ‘Headlines’

August Ruins was forged right in PMM’s hometown of Pittsburgh coming up from the “underground armed with motivation, a message, and a melody”. AR was founded in May of 2009 forming randomly through craigslist ads, and ever since has found success with an explosive sound, combining the speed and melody of California punk with the technicality of modern metal. (On first listen one of our reviewers, Melisa, said they sound like Green Day meets A Day to Remember). August Ruins has been described as fist in the air punk rock, with blistering guitar solos and pounding double bass, combined with catchy choruses, melodic back up vocals, and “an all around passion that illuminates from each member of the band”. With elements of hardcore, metal, and melodic punk music August Ruins is sure to find many fans.

Their latest EP “Headlines” includes some crusty gems like “You Decide” and “Gone Forgotten” with posh punk melodies reminiscent of NOFX, Anti-Flag, New Found Glory and a hint of old-old My Chemical Romance. As August Ruins builds their reputation locally and nationally they will certainly gain an audience among old school and new school punks. But, they certainly have enough elements of hardcore and metalcore to also win those prone to that genre(s) as well. This is an exciting up and coming band that has a ton of potential to break out of Steel Town and hit everytown. Keep them on your radar to make more headlines very soon.

Reggie Little – Rhythm Guitar / Vocals

“Headlines” Produced and Recorded by Brian Mcternan and Mike Schleibaum at Salad Days Studio! On Sale Now. http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/headlines-ep/id523654028

Crossfaith Announces New EP

Japan – November 2006. CROSSFAITH are born.

Unique in their home country of Japan, CROSSFAITH combine metalcore, hardcore, samples and electronica to create groundbreaking music that transcends genres.

Recorded with the legendary ‘Machine’ (Lamb of God/Everytime I Die/Four Year Strong) in New York; ‘Zion’ features 6 tracks of breakneck, electro-infused energy and invention.

Lead track ‘Monolith’ has already got fans salivating, with BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Zane Lowe proclaiming the track as his ‘next hype’.

The Paramedic Debut Album “Smoke & Mirrors” Out Now

The Paramedic are excited to release their Bullet Tooth debut “Smoke & Mirrors” TODAY! The metalcore album is lighting the internet on fire with polarizing talk from fans and is currently sitting at #8 on the iTunes Metal Chart. Intensity, emotion and raw power are three ways to describe Dayton, OH’s The Paramedic. But to pigeon hole the band with just three words would simply be an injustice to this group. Formed in late 2010 by friends Jake Nolan (Guitar), Travis Adkins (Bass), Tony Hovater (Drums), Sean Salasny (Guitar) and Mike Luciano (Lead Vocals); The Paramedic is poised to spearhead the next generation of dynamic metalcore bands, thanks in part to Luciano’s diverse R&B background. The band delivers a unique mix blending the insanity of Asking Alexandria, the electro-sensibilities of Attack Attack, and the soulfulness of Jonny Craig.

Living the dream is a philosophy that Mike Luciano and the guys thrive to live out on a daily basis and will have nothing stand in their way. Against his parents’ wishes, Luciano dropped out of college to pursue his dream of making it in the world of music. This intense internal struggle has made Luciano’s lyrics a personal one-of-a-kind statement that range from raising awareness towards rape to standing up for what you believe in. Judging by the nearly 300,000 views of their cover of Lil’ Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” on YouTube and their 50,000 fans on Facebook, all of the hard work and life altering decisions have been worth it.

In early 2012, the bands’ dream finally came together when New Jersey based record label, Bullet Tooth, signed The Paramedic to a deal. Joining other acts such as Affiance, Serianna, Death Ray Vision and more, the band is sure to reach new audiences that they only ever dreamed about. “It’s been our dream to not only be signed to a label, but also to a label that we know and trust and with Bullet Tooth, we know we are getting just that” said vocalist Mike Luciano.

The band is preparing for bigger tour dates (to be announced soon!) and Luciano goes on to say “We could have never done this without the help of a reputable label and now that we have the backing of an amazing label, we plan on making nothing but the best for our fans. We cannot wait to see what the future holds”.

SLAM ONE DOWN to Take Part in Skateboard Marketing CMJ Showcase

Last week it was announced that New York’s SLAM ONE DOWN will be taking part in this year’s Skateboard Marketing LTD, ReverbNation and Horns Up Rocks CMJ Showcase. The event is scheduled to take place Thursday October 18th at Webster Hall in the “Marlin Room”. Doors will open at 7:00 pm for CMJ Badges and ticket holders. SLAM ONE DOWN is slated to hit the stage at 7:15.

Guitarist JR Gurrieri commented on SLAM ONE DOWN being chosen to perform on at the showcase:

“We are very excited to be a part of CMJ this year. Just adding our name to the incredible list of bands that have taken part over the past 30+ years CMJ has been in existence is an accomplishment to us. We realize that this is an incredible opportunity and will no doubt be a great and rewarding experience. We would like to thank Munsey Ricci and everyone at Skateboard Marketing for inviting us, as well as Horns up Rocks & ReverbNation. We are looking forward to meeting a lot of new people and having the time of our lives….as usual.”

The concept of SLAM ONE DOWN originated in 2005, when guitarist J.R. began developing riffs for what would eventually become the band’s demo album. These riffs followed J.R. throughout three different bands…until he met vocalist Bobby Brazen in 2007. This happened during their time in the New York metal act 4 in the Chamber, and was the catalyst that finally brought S1D to life. Together, the two combined their vision for a band that deftly incorporated elements of thrash metal, metalcore and rock n’ roll in their sound. They recruited the talents of Roach, a veteran drummer from area bands like Shot and Dudes of Doom, and Shane, a seasoned bassist who’d previously played in NYC bands including Sicks Deep and Swear on Your Life. Today, with a tight, aggressive sound and stronger-than-ever lineup, the band is set to dominate the metal scene.

A mainstay on the NYC show circuit, SLAM ONE DOWN has performed with national acts like Drowning Pool, Bleeding Through, Powerman 5000, Unearth, Full Blown Chaos, Mushroomhead, Emmure, Veil of Maya, God Forbid, Generation Kill, Periphery, and Revocation. Fusing blistering style with a unique brand of substance (beer funnels, drinking anthems, and a no-holds-barred stage show), S1D is the band that defines hard-hitting fun.
The band’s first full-length studio album, Who Really Wants to Live Forever, was released at the beginning of September. Appealing to both die-hard Metalheads and crossover rock n’ roll fans, Who Really Wants to Live Forever is sure to blaze a trail through a wasteland of uninspired, cookie-cutter metal – breathing new life into the genre.

Who Really Wants to Live Forever is available for purchase on the band’s website, Amazon and iTunes.
