2017 has been a crazy year for me personally but there were always 10 records that kept me going and those are the 9 above excluding ‘Wrong One To Fuck With’ by death metal machine Dying Fetus. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
Barely an hour ago, Christian metalcore band August Burns Red posted their first teaser of their upcoming new record. It has only been two years since the Pennsylvania quintet put out the terrific ‘Found in Far Away Places’ record. It was considered by many as one of the best records of 2015. The band has only continued to evolve and progress more and more throughout their career so I’m curious to see where this album will take them. The teaser was also posted by Fearless Records’ Facebook page so it looks like the band will be sticking with them for a second album. The only words on the caption of the video are “October 6th, 2017”. We can assume that they are planning to drop the new record on that date so keep your eyes peeled for more news on the future record from these metalcore giants. You can follow them on Facebook below and check out the 20 second teaser right under it. Continue reading →
Sunday was the last and final day of Carolina Rebellion. I was able to get a full dose of Unlocking the Truth for breakfast. The band is comprised of 3 teenagers from Brooklyn, New York that was one of the youngest groups to ever play both Coachella and Van’s Warped Tour in 2014. They have been on most tv talk shows like The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon, The View, The Colbert Report and more. The band has been talked about and talked about.

Unlocking the Truth shared with us their hit song “Monster”, by the time the song ended we were all singing along. The guys in this band are some great musicians, not just for their age but they are better than most musicians twice their age. Continue reading →
