       Set to unleash their debut full length album ‘The Fallen Sun’ officially on June 10th, Toronto, ON’s SLUDGEHAMMER have teamed up with NoCleanSinging.com for the premiere of their track ‘Demons From The Woodwork’ at the following link: http://www.nocleansinging.com/2016/05/27/an-ncs-premiere-sludgehammer-demons-from-the-woodwork/ 

“‘Demons From The Woodwork” was the last song written for ”The Fallen Sun”, but it’s actually the first song on the album. Looking back we were in such a great writing groove by that point. It was actually a pretty easy song to put together. We put it as the first track on the album because it kicks thing’s off with a serious jolt of energy. Also, it incorporates all the different elements that we love about metal and being in a metal band!” comments guitarist Jeff Wilson.

‘The Fallen Sun’ features eleven fist pounding tracks of dynamic vocal performances from lead vocalist Chris Szarota and bassist Dan Ayers, along with a showcase of mind bending guitar solos, heavy riffs and blistering drumming fury to follow up their 2014 EP ‘Organ Harvester’. The album was self-produced by the band and mixed by guitarist Tyler Williams and mastered by world renowned producer & engineer Lasse Lammert (Gloryhammer, Alestorm, Teramaze) at LSD Studio in Germany.

About:
Sludgehammer is a five piece Canadian metal band formed in 2013.  The band began with guitarist Jeff Wilson and drummer Fernando Villalobos jamming together, which quickly resulted in writing songs and searching for a full line up.  Their search led to vocalist Chris Szarota, who possessed an astonishing vocal ferocity and bassist and vocalist Dan Ayers, who passed the audition as a bassist and also revealed a golden voice.  Thus, the first incarnation of Sludgehammer was formed.

The four members worked hard over the next few months to put together a demo, which was released at the band’s first gig on November 22nd, 2013.  The demo was well received even though it was completely self-recorded and the gig offers kept on coming, along with new fans.

With the success of the demo, the band knew that it was time to step things up and hired producer Christian Anderson for their 2014 release, ‘Organ Harvester’.  During the writing sessions, the band decided that Chris and Dan should share vocal duties for this record, as Dan’s voice had been absent from the demo.  The dual vocals proved to be a force to be reckoned with and on August 11th, 2014 ‘Organ Harvester’ was released to rave reviews.

‘Organ Harvester’ gained both new fans and better shows, gathering serious momentum and solid name among the metal community.  However by 2015, after playing many gigs with the ‘Organ Harvester’ material it became very obvious that the fans were hungry for more.  The band began writing more songs for the next release and kept playing gigs, which led them to guitarist Tyler Williams.  Tyler was working as a sound man at the Atria in Oshawa, ON where Sludgehammer was playing, and after their performance, Tyler approached the band.  They set up a jam and in July 2015, Tyler Williams joined Sludgehammer.

The new five piece line up produced a much fuller sound as Jeff and Tyler began working together.  The old songs were given new life and badass new material was being written for their next release, titled ‘The Fallen Sun’.  The new songs featured dynamic vocal performances from Dan and Chris, mind bending guitar solos, heavy riffs and blistering drumming.  As the songs started to pile up, Sludgehammer discussed recording a full length album.  Tyler suggested that they record at his studio, Monolithic Productions.  The band set up shop there and are now ready to unleash ‘The Fallen Sun’ for release on June 10, 2016.

About Sercati:

Thanks to Carlo Bellotti Publishing, who found an amazing sound engineer for the recording and a label, Casket Music (Copro records), to produce « Tales Of The Fallen ». For the recording of the album, the band needed a real drummer instead of the rythmbox used before. That is how, in november, Yannick, a good friend of the band, joined them. Still, the whole band thinks that the best pieces are yet to come. Early 2012, the band left Casket Music to sign with a serbian label, Grom Records, to re-release the first album and produce a second one. Steve is sponsored by the strings Skull Strings and picks from Nologo Picks. And it’s in june 2013 that Nicolas left the band and the other members say welcome to Florian and later in 2014, Olivier Clément comes to play guitar in Sercati. Florian left the band few mounth later and finally Simon join the band in december 2014.”
“Sercati’s story began in 2009, after a recording session between Steve, Damien & Nico. Songs were created and recorded for a half a year before a first demo, simply called “Sercati”, was made. The second, “The Night Stalker” was recorded a little while after.

We remind you that Sercati’s last album “The Rise of The Nightstalker” is available for purchase via Wormholedeath / Aural Music Group.

    Matteo De Bellis (Vocals)
    Rino Lanotte (Drums)
  • Hometown: Barletta / Baricarmine-cristallo-subliminar-fear

1.How did you came up with the idea to create Subliminar Fear?

Hello, it’s a very pleasure to be here and to talk about our project with you. Initially, SF was born from an idea to have fun only. We wanted to play just our prefer bands songs like In Flames or At The Gates and nothing more. After some years, like all bands, we started to write our material and we liked that we were creating together. If I look in the past years, when we started this project, I realize how many things they are changed in our musical tastes and the way to write songs. About that first line-up, the founder members remained are Alessio, Domenico and me.

2.What do you think about the progress of the band?

I like to think that our first season is finished. When we started this project we played a melodic death metal with thrash and metal-core elements and in our first two albums you can listen this for sure without doubts. In the past, there are been also many changes in line-up and this didn’t help our sound’s evolution. Domenico and me, the main writers of the songs, split from the band for some years and the second album is been released in a strange situation and with no stability. I have to admit that we would arrange the songs and all work in a more professional way. But it is in the past. When we started to talk about a new album and I back in the band, we felt many things were changed with new musical experiences and also many new influences that we wanted to include in our music. We needed to involve our sound in something personal and we worked hard on this. With “Escape from Leviathan” we started like a new life for the band with more defined personality and with improved skills. I can say we are in our best moment and we will continue to work in this way.

3.How can your describe your musical style?

“Escape from Leviathan” presents a modern metal with many influences. Really I don’t like to catalog the music but of course it’s helpful to make understand and describe it to new fans. For me it’s a perfect mix between melodic and extreme metal and also it shows groove-oriented parts and industrial sounds. I think it can be appreciate by all people that love contaminations in music. Now our sound has grown because we has grown like musicians and we needed to evolve all is around us too. We have chosen to change our skin and to make alive our project.

4. Your realised the album “Escape From Leviathan” , what can you tell me about the album, and about the lyrics on the album?

We started to work on this album in the beginning of 2014 and the songwriting process is been quite long cause, like I said before, we decided to arrange songs with a fresh and modern style, going over the genre of melodic death metal. The electronic parts and synths are the very new element in our sound. They are been arranged by Botys Beezart that he has co-produced this album with us. He is really a talented musician and we thank him for to be part of this project. After this I can add to list of new things also the new way to arrange the songs with a more groove-oriented guitar riffing, a more technical drumming and the mix of melodies from many kind of metal genres with extreme parts too. About concept of the album, it’s a futuristic and apocalyptic vision of our society. Concurrently with the music style we changed also the topics of our lyrics. They talk about a society that guide us and control us with new technologies, something is not so much far from reality, and at the same time the machines we created they control us subconsciously. This concept is been inspired by sci-fi movies like Terminator, Matrix and Blade Runner.

5. Which band is your role model, Do you have a influences form other musical genres except metal?

I can say we have many influences but not a real model band that we follow faithfully. We look at their music’s creativity and we hope to repeat these results. I like to listen also other musical genres like pop or rock music but I don’t feel to say they are a real influence in our songs also if in our new album you can hear some echoes from ’80 pop music, specially in some melodies and in synths. 

carmine-cristallo-subliminar-fear

6. What are you listening the most right know?

Always I try to listen most of the new music released specially of my prefer bands. Now is impossible to follow all new releases like when we were young metal heads! Lately I liked the new albums of two Italian bands: The Foreshadowing and Novembre. This is a demonstration that our scene doesn’t have anything less of the others and of course it needs attention from media.

7. What do you think about today’s metal scene?

The metal scene is yet rich of talented musicians and bands, also here in Italy. Here a bit of things are changed from we started like band. Social networks have changed in positive the way to reach people everywhere but, at least in my country, I see few people in live gigs and this is not good to make alive our scene. The live clubs or events are very difficult to find and if you want play to promote own music only you can hope in some pay-to-play event. I mean it’s not wrong this, but it must not to be the only way.

8.Do you have a plan to go on tour?

Of course yes! In these weeks we are working hard in our studio to arrange our live shows. Soon we will be on the road and I’m curious to see what people will say about new material and about new line up. After September we want to bring our music in many places we can, small or big events don’t care.

9. Where would you most like to held a concert?

Till now, our best live experiences are been in summer festivals. It’s something amazing to share stage with important bands and to know talented musicians also from unknown bands. It makes you grow yourself too.

10. What’s your plan for the future?

The main plan will be to promote the new album with live shows and I hope we will have some opportunities to do it also out of our country. Our new album is receiving good response specially out of Italy thanks also to Inverse Records and their work. I feel like this moment is the best for us and I’m looking to write new material soon.
