ENTHEOS (Former Members of Animosity, Animals As Leaders) Stream Debut EP, ‘Primal’

After studio teases galore, ENTHEOS have finally released their debut, four-track EP – a few days earlier than originally expected, too.

“Our EP is done and we couldn’t wait until Sunday to put it out,” the band stated on Instagram.

Aggressive as hell, but more djenty and electronic than we expected, Primal is a rip-roaring good time for fans of groovy, technical death metal. Featuring Navene Koperweis (Animosity, Animals As Leaders, Fleshwrought, The Faceless) on drums, Evan Brewer (Animosity, The Faceless) on bass, Frank Costa (Animosity) on guitar and the awesomely inspiring Chaney Crabb on vocal duties, it’s easy to …

Bandcamp Announces Plans To Help Artists Start Their Own Subscription Services

As The Guardian reports, soon all artists utilizing Bandcamp’s streaming and storefront service will be able to set up their own subscription services for their fanbase.

When asked about the new feature, chief executive Ethan Diamond said, “The whole motivation here is that when …

Allison Weiss And Her Band Involved In Van Accident, Taking Donations And Digital Sales

Writing about this kind of thing is the hardest part of the job. While driving from Denver to Salt Lake City yesterday as a part of their current tour routing, Allison Weiss and her band hit a patch of ice along a treacherous stretch of highway and rolled off the road.

According to a Facebook post from Weiss, no one in the band is seriously injured aside from a few bumps and scratches. However, the group’s tour van is destroyed. This is always painful to hear about. As a touring musician, you depend on your van and your instruments to …

One Fell Swoop

UTG PREMIERE: One Fell Swoop – “April Fool’s Gold”

New York-based One Fell Swoop is a band fueled on an aggressive and poetic snarl of driven hardcore music. Today, Under The Gun Review is premiering the band’s new song, “April Fool’s Gold.” The song is a mixture of musicianship, melody and hostility. It’s the type of song with the moxie of Every Time I Die and the respectable composition complication of The Fall of Troy. There’s just a little something for everybody on the track.

The band’s new EP, Last Minute Living, is slated for a November 4 release and can be picked up via Bandcamp. One …
