iwrestledabearonce Join Artery Recordings, Tease New Album

The world has been a lot quieter than usual this year due to the lack of new material released by the chaotic and often very funny iwrestledabearonce. The group did not release any new material this year, and truth be told they also managed to stay largely out of the spotlight. That is no longer the case, however, as the group behind 2013’s Late For Nothing have finally revealed their plans for the future.

Breaking their silence over Facebook with a short update for fans, iwrestledabearonce have revealed that they are already hard at work on the next studio …


Attila Announce New Album ‘Guilty Pleasure’

Oh, Attila. There’s something special about this band. Like most of the metalcore world, I was mostly shocked and appalled at the band’s most recent record, About That Life. However, that didn’t stop me from telling just about everyone I knew to watch the band’s video for the title track, out of pure comedic value. Considering that the group now operates largely off of shock value, I’d say that they’re doing something right.

Attila has just announced the follow-up to About That Life. It’s called Guilty Pleasure, and the first song is called “Pizza, Sex, …

Chelsea Grin Debut “Letters”

After teasing fans with new music snippets and studio videos since October, Chelsea Grin have broken their creative silence and delivered a new track titled “Letters.”

The first song to surface online from Chelsea Grin’s 2014 release, “Letters” finds the band further pushing their progressive take on modern metal. The beginning of the track hits you like a shotgun blast to the chest, and as the first verse gives way to the refrain, the song evolves into an even bigger, meaner, and nastier offering of rock goodness. By the time the guitar solos begin you find yourself immersed in a …

REVIEW: Attila – Party With The Devil (Maxi Single)

Artist: Attila
Album: Party With The Devil (Maxi Single)
Genre: Party Metal
Label: Artery

Oh, Attila. Where does one even begin? It should be said up front that this band is one hundred percent dedicated to their niche genre of so-called “party metal.” That said, if chugging cheap brews while verbally shitting on everything in your path is not your cup of musical tea, it may be wise to simply wipe the existence of this band from your memory as depth is not on the short-list of their strong points.
