Los Angeles based hard rock band VYCES started in the summer of 2014 when Chicago native Dave Naruszewicz was looking to work on a new project following the disbandment of his former group HEART-SET SELF-DESTRUCT. After years of touring with such bands as FILTER, HELL YEAH, VOLBEAT, POP EVIL, etc., he realized it was time for change. He spent time working with other musicians in the Chicago music scene looking to feed his passion as an artist but he did not find what he was looking for. Dave’s vision was not deterred, so he decided to reach out to longtime friend and drummer, Russell Ray (formerly of OLD FASHIONED BEATDOWN).
Hey, all you tech and prog nerds! Look here, German progressive tech death band OBSCURA are back with a brand new single, “Diluvium” from their eponymous upcoming studio album.

None the less, the German quartet today release their title track from ‘Diluvium‘, which is due out on 13th of July, via Relapse Records. I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday gift!

HOGAN’S GOAT from Nashville have a brand new music video out for their track “Shit Kicker“.
“We went out to Montana, fucked around, and summoned the spirit of the ‘Shit Kicker.’
No but seriously, from the moment we wrote it, we knew “Shit Kicker” would be the best representation of our style. A song about true grit, unwavering courage, and standing your ground. Our goal was to symbolically showcase the Shit Kicker that lives in all of us; no matter who you are, or where you’re from.
We want to give a special thanks to Walter and Cassie Runsabove, who sat down with us after filming, and gave us a lesson on Native American culture over breakfast. We would also like to thank Curley, Ed Fick, and there rest of the Billings Road Dogs for letting us crash their toy drive, film part of ‘Shit Kicker,’ and play a few songs for them. That wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Montana Mobile Stage and Productions, too! Thanks, Charlie!” –John Salmon(Vocals)
Delivering hard hitting metal from Salisbury NC, BLACKWATER DROWNING have made a name for themselves playing on some of the biggest stages in the underground scene. With their mix of technical musicianship and brutal vocals, the band has shared those same stages with many international recording acts.
With the start of the New Year, the band made their way back into the studio to begin working on their follow up to their debut release, “Deity”. The first track from the band’s newly announced “Ruthless“ EP, “Violent Ends”, shows an evolution of the band, shining more light on their drummer, Chris Peavy, along with the addition of a rhythm guitarist, Chris Jones. Lead guitarist Jeremy Bennett shows off his fretboard pyrotechnics, with vocalist Morgan Riley delivering her signature brutal vocal delivery as well as added screams from Bassist Aria Novi. The new track is really borderline death metal vocals with almost the same temperament as that of death metal. The drums are hit with significant intensity, more than that the riffing is heavy, tuned down and perfectly blends together with Morgan’s tight vocal delivery.
