Septicflesh are a group of Grecian symphonic death metal titans who need no introduction, so it makes perfect sense that their latest album would indeed be called Titan. After splitting up temporarily in the mid 2000s, the band reconvened to record Communion (2008) and The Great Mass (2011). Their new release carries on their legacy. Guitarist Christos Antoniou offers some wonderful pointers that all up and coming bands should pay attention to. The man is a veritable pioneer, so sit back and learn from this master of the craft.

No one is quite sure how Kite Party first caught the attention of their new label – neither the band nor Animal Style Records – but it’s pretty obvious to anyone who has heard the new album why they were signed. Come on Wandering, Kite Party’s new full-length, is indie rock raised on punk music. The band’s bio sums it up best, claiming Kite Party’s music is for “anyone who wishes that maybe The Replacements had kind of been a shoegaze band.” Though most of the band members grew up about two hours north of Philadelphia, they managed to flee their hometown for the City of Brotherly Love right after graduation. They put out their debut, Baseball Season, in 2011, and though it was a solid release, Come on Wandering is bound to bring them to a much larger audience. Three-fifths of the band – guitarist and keyboardist Justin Fox, vocalist Russell Edling, and drummer Pat Conaboy – field a few questions about the band.

Rise Against have released a music video for their new track “I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore,” off their new album The Black Market.
"Our new video for the song ‘I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore’ encompasses the overwhelming noise of our world and the fatigue we all feel as its witness. This song is a starting point, not an ending point. It’s about the wake-up calls in life that let us know something needs to change." - Rise Against
