From Ashes to New, out of Pennsylvania include founder/ rapper/programmer Matt Brandyberry and guitarist Lance Dowdle with new additions- vocalist Danny Case and drummer Mat Madiro. The band has gone through a few changes since they ended their last tour in December 2016.
“Crazy” is the first look into the sophomore album and is an anthem for the people feeling caught in the middle of a situation and confused by it all. And honestly who hasn’t been there? “Crazy” was recorded at Atrium Audio with producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak (August Burns Red) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Korn, Lamb Of God)
“Crazy is, at its core, a song about someone or something driving you absolutely out of your mind and feeling unable to walk away from it. I feel like everyone at one point or another experiences that in their lives” states Danny ”For me personally, I dated someone for a very short period of time and it felt like everything I said and did was wrong. I honestly thought I was losing my mind because I knew it was a bad situation, but I just felt like I couldn’t walk away. I think having that life experience really helped when we sat down and wrote the lyrics”

(Long Island, NY – September 15th, 2017) Huntington metalcore quintet From Hollow Veins are premiering their brand new lyric video for ‘Self Doubt‘
From Hollow Veins are a post-hardcore band who formed in the fall of 2013 in Long Island, NY. While recording their first demo with producer Scott Gross, the guitarist of Long Island metalcore pioneers From Autumn to Ashes, saw the true potential within the group and inspired them to pursue their music career with full vigor.
After releasing their debut EP titled “From Hollow Veins” in 2015, From Hollow Veins have played most of the East Coast while sharing the stage with bands like Alesana, Sworn In, Get Scared, The Order of Elijah, Cane Hill and many more. From Hollow Veins have honed their craft and continue to claw their way to success.
Their brand new track ‘Self Doubt’ perfectly balances melody with aggression with thunderous guitars, powerful vocals and pounding drums. This track is reminiscent of Killswitch Engage, Vanna and Counterparts with clear growth and maturity from the band since their last outing. Their potential spotted by Scott Gross is starting to be realised and this track ‘Self Doubt’ is a shining example of that.
From Hollow Veins is:
Robert Folan – Vocals
Roberto Rivera – Guitar
Luke Lerman – Bass
Nick Montalvo – guitar
Ben Wyrick – Drums
Hailing from one of Europe’s most pristine and beautiful countries, Austria, they are dark, grim and blasphemous, something that is of stark contrast from their motherland. BELPHEGOR continue to raise horns and spit out epic dark and heavy music as we await their all new 11th studio album ‘Totentritual‘ coming out this September 15, via Nuclear Blast Records. In support of their new album the band has released a second single in the form of a lyric video for the song, ‘Apophis – Black Dragon‘. The song sounds blasphemous and vicious. Psst, that double bass though!
