Cynic release stunning new song called ”Humanoid”!

Cynic have released a digital single titled “Humanoid”. This song marks the first new music from the progressive pioneers since the Americans’ 2014 full-length, ”Kindly Bent To Free Us”.

 

Frontman Paul Masvidal stated this about the song:

” ”Humanoid” is a portrait of contrasts, like those between struggle and stillness, or the immediate against the limitless. Our Stargate is planet Earth consciousness, the transmitter. We, sentient creatures of light, are alive now — on a sphere, floating in a galaxy fixed amidst the infinite. It’s quite miraculous to be aware of this, and it invokes a sense of urgency and empowerment that is unlike anything else.”

“Humanoid” was recorded by Paul Masvidal and longtime Cynic bassist Sean Malone. The song also and marks the debut of the band’s new drummer, Matt Lynch, who brings a renewed sense of energy to ‘Cynic’s rhythm section.

For the mixing of “Humanoid”,  Cynic partnered with renowned engineer Adam “Nolly” Getgood. Sean Malone comments: “Nolly’s approach is equal parts expertise and intuition. Working with him was quick, clear, but most of all, musical.”

The artwork for “Humanoid” features a detail from the painting “Ayahuasca Dream” by Robert VenosaCynic‘s longtime collaborator and celebrated an artist who sadly passed away in 2011.

On further news, Sweden’s award-winning Strandberg* Guitars are announcing a new Paul Masvidal signature instrument today, the “Masvidalien Cosmo”, which can be viewed at the picture below.

Paul Masvidal by Darrin Noble

Paul Masvidal stated this about  the Strandberg Masvidalien Cosmo custom guitar:
“Strandberg breaks new ground yet again. Kabir, the 15th-century Indian mystic poet said ‘Wherever you are is the entry point’, and the Masvidalien Cosmo captures this spirit as an instrument.
When I first started conversations with Ola about the guitar, words such as ‘effortless’, ‘ease’, ‘elegance’, and ‘versatility’ came to mind. Not only was this captured with the instrument, but it was also taken further. The finished product managed to strike a rare alchemy, where everything from the way it sounds, feels, and appears fell seamlessly into place: the guitar both expresses and is itself an expression.”
Strandberg is in a league of its own, holding the greatness of progressive design at its heart. Ola’s work benefits the present by not being bound to it. It’s truly an honor to be working with a visionary company like Strandberg.”

The band has released three albums worldwide through Nightmare Records/Sony RED, and performed in a dozen countries and counting.  Halcyon Way’s sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature songcraft. In December 2016  Halcyon Way toured Russia with Sabaton, and has also hit the road with bands such as Queensryche, Saxon, Fates Warning, Skid Row, and many others, playing to fans across 4 continents.

Davey Suicide Release Official Music Video for “Too Many Freaks (Feat. Twiztid)” Off of Upcoming ‘Made From Fire’ LP

Rock band Davey Suicide has released the Official Video for the debut single, “Too Many Freaks (Feat. Twiztid),” off of their upcoming LP Made From Fire. Due out March 24, Made From Fire was Co-Produced by keyboardist Needlz and Charles Kallaghan Massabo, and was premiered on Kerrang!

There is a primordial force running though this band, a momentum that will not be held back by anything. In today’s uncertain climate, the world needs an escape, more freaks, and a reason to be excited again. There are 14 massive tracks on “Made from Fire” that fit that bill and this album breathes a new direction into a rock/industrial/nu metal genre. “We’re erecting a new kingdom of torching wrath, industrial destruction, passionate melodies, tons of charisma and a tough attitude culminating one conclusion: If there’s one Rock band out there the world really needs right now, it’s Davey Suicide.”

 

The name, “Suicide” is a constant reminder that unless we kill ourselves, there’s no ceiling for what we are capable of.“

Hailing from Unholywood Killafornia, Davey Suicide is cultivating the underground by fusing arena rock, gutter grit, sleaze and theatrics into their own “nu” brand of industrial rock. The band, which features Davey Suicide along with Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura, distills heavy metal, industrial and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. “Rock fans haven’t gone anywhere,“ Suicide exclaims, “they just need a reason to fall in love again.”

Formed in 2010, Suicide played a few huge shows in Hollywood before garnering the attention of a couple indie labels and the original manager of Linkin Park. By early 2012, Suicide signed a record deal and started extensively touring by the summer of 2012. Over the next five years, the band went on 16 tours, 330+ shows over 2 continents (with the likes of Static-X, Combichrist, Wednesday 13, Twiztid, Ill Nino, Orgy, New Years Day, William Control) and put out 3 releases including the Put Our Trust in Suicide EP (Nov 2012), the self titled Davey Suicide LP (March 2013) and the World Wide Suicide LP (September 2014). The 4th release, and 3rd full length album, entitled Made From Fire, hits shelves on March 24, 2017

Along the way, Suicide gained notable press from Kerrang Magazine as one of the Top 50 Rockstars in the World, Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need to Know, Revolver Magazine’s Ones to Watch, and numerous features in Big Cheese, Outburn, Substream, Scuzz TV, & Blank TV.

In the spring of 2015, Suicide and former record label locked horns in a year and a half long litigation over rights of Suicide’s albums and numerous contractual breaches. In August of 2016, Suicide released a tell-all video depicting the details of what the band and he had gone through with the label. The video turned into a media circus amassing over 1.3 million views, and reaching over 3 million people in a matter of days. Shortly after the video went viral, the lawsuit ended up getting settled. The video was then removed after the settlement.

In late August of 2016, Suicide released the empowering single, “Rise Above” which has since been added to the Kerrang TV, Scuzz TV and Kerrang Radio rotation. “Rise Above” is the first taste of their upcoming 3rd studio album entitled, Made From Fire.

On September 16, 2016, the Davey Suicide catalogue was re-released on Itunes, and all digital outlets by Suicide. Made From Fire, the 3rd studio LP, will be released on March 24, 2017. Suicide exclaims, “All of this adversity tested us and forced us to learn how to survive. It could have ended us, but instead, we’ve created our most exciting collection of material to date as a result.”

Davey Suicide’s Made From Fire incorporates the anarchistic bite of vintage Marilyn Manson with the stadium feel of Bring Me The Horizon and the epic melodies courtesy of In This Moment. Blended together with barefaced sex appeal and borderline extremism and danger, Davey Suicide has erected a new kingdom of torching wrath, industrial destruction, passionate melodies, tons of charisma and a tough attitude allowing only one conclusion: If there’s one Rock band out there the world really, really needs right now, it’s Davey Suicide.

September Mourning Release Official Music Video for “20 Below” Off of Debut LP, ‘Volume II’

The Dark Alternative, Hard Rock Transmedia Project September Mourning have released their Official Music Video for “20 Below” off of their debut full length album, Volume II, which is out now on Sumerian Records. Originally premiered on Alternative Press, “20 Below” follows the continuing story of human-reaper hybrid ‘September’ through parallel story lines as she is pursued between two worlds.

20 Below is about ending the cycle of abuse within our own lives, whether it’s self inflicted or from an outside source. We’ve all had those relationships where someone has gotten close to us, abuses us in some way… knocks us down so hard it diminishes our self esteem. “20 Below” is about the realization that the beat down feeling and feelings of worthlessness are untrue and being caused by some external negativity. It’s about being strong enough within your own self to rise above. There are no saviors or Messiah coming to save us. There’s only the strength in our hearts and our souls, which is greater than we can even conceive. It’s great enough to be the catalyst to save our own selves if we find a way to tap into that part of ourselves. –  Said the band about the there new song.

SEPTEMBERMOURNING 2016

About September Mourning:

September Mourning’s debut EP (Volume I) and comic book (A Murder of Reapers) tells an epic tale of “heartbreak, loss, pain, joy, love, redemption, but most of all, courage…” while the comic book chronicles the first chapter of her story. Produced by Sahaj Ticotin and Howard Benson, September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and X-Men’s Storm had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as Motionless In White, Disturbed, and Muse..

“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”

The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Men comics and went on to form Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic form, to accompany, and enhance the musical message.

Having toured with Marilyn Manson, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.”
