In this series we pose the age old questions to a wide array of music lovers. As fans of music most of us keep a mental list of active bands we want to see live that we haven’t yet seen. The Bucketlist brings to you those lists of your favorite artists and why those bands mean so much to them.
With only two widely released studio albums, Crobot already has a large array of hits in their catalogue to get the crowd moving quickly. I love every single song on ‘Something Supernatural’; it’s a record that demands to be listened from front to back when you spin it. Two songs that were largely played on the radio include the opening tracks on the record, “Nowhere to Hide” and “Legend of the Spaceborne Killer”. Just last year, the band released their second record via Wind-Up Records with ‘Welcome to Fat City’. Songs like “Not for Sale” and “Plague of the Mammoths” (an amazing show opener) became quick favorites. The band still showcased their strong mix of hard/stoner rock that makes you want to get up and move. Crobot has a throwback retro kinda sound that both modern music lovers and old school metalheads can enjoy. Continue reading →
As a writer, it’s a bit of an exciting game of “What will they do next?” when it comes to bands releasing new material. Some bands change their sound, some bands change their look, and then there are bands that invent instruments. Okay, maybe that last one is a little less frequent than the others, but it does happen and in 1995, Motograter became one of those bands. Continue reading →
It has been about three years since ‘Peace At All Costs’, so that means it’s time for new music from hard rock band Otherwise! Yesterday, the band dropped their first new songs featuring new members Tony Carboney (Bass) and Brian Medeiros (Drums). “Angry Heart” and “Close to the Gods” are some of their heaviest songs yet and should have fans pumped to see what the Patrick brothers are about to deliver. You may have heard “Angry Heart” in the last week over on Sirius XM Octane’s “Test Drive”. ‘Sleeping Lions’ will be released on September 22nd via Century Media Records. You can pre-order it on ther Pledge Music campaign here. Check out the two songs below along with album artwork and the album track list. Follow Otherwise on Facebook to stay up to date for more music coming very soon. Continue reading →
When I heard that legendary thrash metal band Sepultura would be playing near me in Hedon Zwolle I instantly got my tickets to the show. They weren’t coming alone, they brought death metal band Aborted with supporting band Killing Cult Society. Even though I had never heard Killing Cult Society I had high hopes because you don’t become the support band for Sepultura for nothing! Before we go any further I need to talk about the venue, Hedon Zwolle. This has been my second time being there and yet again right after the doors were open you felt welcomed. Everything was well organized and the staff was friendly and easy to talk to. I am really happy about this venue and I am glad that I am lucky enough to live close to it. Already looking forward to being there again!
Tampa Bay Florida Death Metal Godfathers OBITUARY have shared the official live video accompanying ‘Sentence Day‘ off the band’s self-titled full-length album. The video was filmed in stunning 4k by Magnetar Studios at several locations on the band’s headlining tour with GRUESOME earlier this year. Watch OBITUARY perform ‘Sentence Day‘ below.
The band comments on the video and song: “We are super excited to bring you guys another music video from the new album. This video was extra fun for the band as we invited James to ride along with us for a couple shows and get onstage/offstage and crowd footage then his entire crew met up with us and filmed a show with multi-camera angles. ‘Sentence Day‘ is one of our favorite songs on the album and definitely a fan favorite so we are proud to bring you guys this video. Enjoy!“
TRIVIUM has returned with a new track titled, ‘The Sin And The Sentence‘ the first new music from the group since their celebrated 2015 LP, ‘Silence In The Snow‘.TRIVIUM will return with a new album this fall, with more details to be announced in the coming weeks. Matt Heafy and co’s new single sounds heavy, furiously fast and the usual groovy that the band carries along with it as a trademark.
In the meantime, the Orlando, Florida-based band will spend this August lighting up Europe, starting tomorrow which includes appearances at such hard rock and metal festivals as Germany’s Wacken Open Air, Austria’s Jolly Roger Festival, Poland’s Woodstock Festival and more along with headline dates featuring support from Obituary and Bury Tomorrow (See attached itinerary).

FINAL DRIVE just announced a new string of August tour dates accompanied by Shawshank Redeemed and Shinebright on select shows. Kicking off August 11th, FINAL DRIVE will join forces with Letters From The Fire for an anticipated St. Louis performance at The Firebird.
“There’s nothing like kicking off a tour in our hometown, we had the awesome luck of timing and lined up the show with Letters from the Fire! This will sure to get the run off to a killer start. Working on a few surprises as well, so come out, say hello, get down on some FYM! VIP upgrades available!” states vocalist Jordan Gaw on the upcoming run.
Nearly three years in the making, black metal legends SATYRICON have revealed their highly anticipated ninth studio album, ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep’ is set for release on 22nd September via Napalm Records. The opus will be available in digital format, CD digipak and gatefold vinyl options and is now available for pre-order HERE!

*Every Tuesday and Thursday from now until Louder Than Life gets here we will be releasing an article about a band playing the festival to get you familiar with them.*
Today’s artist is Palisades.
On Saturday, September 30th, electronic rock band Palisades will be opening up Louder Than Life. Palisades formed just six short years ago in New Jersey. The same year they formed, they put out their first taste of music with a four song EP. Their mix of electronic rock, alternative rock, and metalcore sound were enough to grab the attention of Rise Records. They were signed to the label in the same year. That same EP was released again later with Rise and the title was changed from ‘The Rise’ to ‘I’m Not Dying Today’. “Disclosure” and “Bury It” from the EP both received music videos. Two year later, the band dropped their debut album ‘Outcasts’. Check out “High & Low” from that record below. ‘Mind Games’ dropped in 2015 and was their heaviest record yet. It features their best combination of electronic music and rock to date. Louis Miceli sounds extremely similar to Tyler Carter of Issues at times on this record. The band went out on the Vans Warped Tour for their first time that same year to promote ‘Mind Games’.
Less than a year after ‘Mind Games’, bassist Brandon Reese and keyboardist Earl Halasan left the fold. Brandon Elgar was introduced as the new bassist and someone by the name of Graves would be on the turntables. Shortly after the changes in the bands were made, the band dropped one more song featuring the old members. “Fall” was a bit of foreshadowing with what direction the band was heading toward. They were starting to add more pop elements to their music while still maintaining their old sound. In January of this year, the band released their third full length album, ‘Palisades’. The record combined all of the work they had done into the past into one diverse record. “Let Down” is still the biggest hit on record as it continues to receive airplay on big stations like Sirius XM Octane. Check out that song and “Better Chemicals” (which just got a music video a few weeks ago) below. While the old material is great, Palisades has mainly been sticking to playing lots of material from the new album live.Don’t miss this band if you are a fan of bands like We Came As Romans, Crown The Empire, or I See Stars. This will be the band’s first time on a Danny Wimmer Presents festival. Buy your tickets to see Palisades at Louder Than Life this fall right here. Be sure to follow the band on Facebook for updates on new music and upcoming tours.
