LIFECURSE Releases Official Music Video for “BUZZARD BAIT”

Asheville, NC Metal band LIFECURSE has released the official music video for “BUZZARD BAIT,” off of their forthcoming album, The Wolf You Feed. Produced by Jamie KIng (Between the Buried and MeFor TodayThe ContortionistScale the Summit), The Wolf You Feed is set to release mid-2018.

“‘Buzzard Bait’ is the first song we have released since 2013’s ‘Elysium.’ The song touches on themes and topics such as society’s inherent desire to watch people fail, to rubberneck through life and use other people’s failures and faults as a means to lift themselves higher, failing to realize that we are all one in the same. We are all born and we will all die, those are the only 2 things you are guaranteed in life. The rest is up to you to make make the world a better place, or completely destroy it. No one can make that choice.

Buzzard Bait is a song about the constant struggle between light and dark, and the incessant human need for validation from other humans.” – Lifecurse

Heavy music is like a shark–bloodthirsty, violent–but more importantly, driven by progression. The second bands stagnate and lose momentum, they sink to the murky depths of the listener’s mind, only to be rediscovered by whims of nostalgia years later. Fortunately for Asheville, North Carolina’s Lifecurse, stagnation is neither a word in their vocabulary or a concept they are familiar with. Originating in 2010, Lifecurse have practically defined the pinnacle of metalcore progression, expertly blending erratic, energetic heaviness with ethereality and riff-friendly technicality. What’s more? As times change and more and more bands are thinking out of the box, Lifecurse is far from afraid to delve into the darkest corners metal, hardcore and deathcore have to offer, never backing away from an opportunity to push the envelope further.

Since their formation in early 2010, Lifecurse have left no stone unturned. Independently releasing two full length studio albums and distributing thousands of copies to fans across the country, the band’s work ethic is admirable to say the least; providing full musical experiences where their peers are satisfied with brief EPs and single releases. Their devotion to their fans and fellow heavy music enthusiasts is also displayed by their incessant tour schedule. Planning and executing many of their own small excursions throughout 2012 and 2013 to support their sophomore release, Elysium, the band got their first big break as direct support for the legendary Norma Jean on their nationwide tour in 2014. Lifecurse’s impressive resume doesn’t end there–the band have acted as regional support for such genre-defining giants as The Ghost InsideThe Acacia StrainAll that Remains, and Battlecross, among several others. Since then, Lifecurse have receded from the public eye, planning tours and festivals, as well as writing and recording their third LP, The Wolf You Feed, an immense concept album spanning two discs. Adding a thick layer of icing to their already impressive cake of two full-length releases, The Wolf You Feed is sure to be the latest and greatest product from a band that has never slowed down in their constant push to deliver fresh and furious music to their fans.

Between touring the country, writing and recording immense, diverse and dynamic hit albums and playing countless local benefit shows for charities and charitable causes, Lifecurse are the “do or die” mentality come to life. The Wolf You Feed set for a Spring 2017 release, and tours to support it, it’s only a matter of time before this North Carolinian quintet devours your local scene.

From Ashes To New Premiere “Crazy” Song and Lyric Video, Prep New Album ‘The Future’

Rock band From Ashes To New have released their single and lyric video for “Crazy,” premiering the song on SiriusXM Octane today. “Crazy” is the first single off of their upcoming LP, The Future, releasing April 20th via Better Noise Records / Eleven Seven Music.

“Crazy” is the first look into the sophomore album from the revamped Lancaster, PA based band consisting of Founder/ Rapper/Programmer Matt Brandyberry and Guitarist Lance Dowdle with new additions Vocalist Danny Case and Drummer Mat Madiro. The band has gone through a few changes since they ended their last tour in December 2016.

“Pretty much anything that could go wrong to try and slow down the process and throw you a curveball happened during the last year since we came off the road, but we came out on the other side. “states Matt Brandyberry “I was in a very down mind frame because of what was happening with the other members leaving and the anxiety made it difficult to write at times but ultimately I found the right people to come together and we decided we were going to write the best music we possibly could and see where that took us.”

“Crazy” is a huge anthem for the people feeling caught in the middle of a situation and confused by it all.

“Crazy is, at its core, a song about someone or something driving you absolutely out of your mind and feeling unable to walk away from it. I feel like everyone at one point or another experiences that in their lives” states Danny ”For me personally, I dated someone for a very short period of time and it felt like everything I said and did was wrong. I honestly thought I was losing my mind because I knew it was a bad situation, but I just felt like I couldn’t walk away. I think having that life experience really helped when we sat down and wrote the lyrics”

“Crazy” was recorded at Atrium Audio with producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak (August Burns Red) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (KornLamb Of God)

Steven J. Vertun Releases Official Music Video “Radio”

Steven J. Vertun (www.stevenJvertun.com) has released the second music video, “Radio”, off of his February 2017 released album Ghost, Shadow and Sun. “Radio” was directed by Matt Zane and expands upon the ongoing discussion on the destructive impact of technology.

I wrote and created “Radio” the song and later the accompanying video, to bring consideration to the destructive nature of social technology to society in general. The isolation, friction, stimuli overload amidst the relentless clatter and clang is overwhelming social graces and human to human interaction. That said, the video demonstrates a way out and above the chaos. – Steven J Vertun

Born and raised in the NY/NJ region of the US, a “behaviorally challenging” 5-year-old is presented with the choice of choosing any instrument he’d like to learn to play as the latest volley from an exhaustive list of attempts to “get him under control”. Said chaotic child picks the accordion because he likes the complexity of all the buttons, knobs and keys. Kid learns the keys; the “sedating” thing fails spectacularly. Music creation and playing does become his very best friend however and highly contributes towards keeping him out of prison and remaining vertical during his formative years.

Steve switched to guitar at the age of fifteen. Upon having a grand total of five chords under his belt, he started his first band, Attic (the band rehearsed in the loft of an old barn). Over the next several years, he and his mates worked on their chops and played out whenever and wherever they could find a few electrical outlets…the drinking age of 21 limiting opportunities but inspiring creative gigs and venues. Two weeks after graduating college, he loaded up his rusty old VW bug with a couple of beat up guitars, an old Fender Twin Reverb Amp, a sack (literally) of clothes, $731 of cash and blindly traveled to Orange County, California, having never been out of the tri-state area prior to this journey. Once there, he started the band Sparrow (culled from a wild sparrow he raised for 8 years) which trans-morphed into the alternative rock band Eye Savant for 18 years. Eye Savant established a large, OC based following over the years, playing frequently at the best venues in the area and occasionally venturing up to LA as well. They opened for many well-known artists such as Jeff BeckGreat WhiteStan RidgewayMolly Hatchett and several others while frequently headlining their own shows. Eye Savant disbanded in 2002 when two of the members moved to different parts of the country. Steve opted to continue on as a solo performer, bringing in a variety of excellent musicians as needed for recording puposes.

Steve has been crafting original rock material exclusively since he picked up his first guitar (actually since his first day on the accordion). His music is a blend of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s influenced alternative rock, progressing over the years but carrying forward the roots of each generation of music and adding to the next. The wide range of explorations covers acoustic ballads to medium paced excursions to high energy, wall of sound big bangs. Some of the bands he notes as being highly influential are SpringsteenPink FloydThe DoorsRushU2LiveLifeHouseFoo FightersSwitchfootSnow PatrolImagine Dragons and others. Does he sound specifically like any of the above influences? His response, “I don’t believe so. What I do know is that the music of these outstanding artists and others (inclusive of classical, Blues, and World Music), drop into this wide-open filter of my mind, mingle with my personal experiences, travel through the internal grist mill and come out in whatever manner and form that they do. Everyone will hear it in their own measure and how they personally relate the music and lyrics to their own unique experiences”.

In November of 2016, Steve completed his first music video to coincide with his latest CD release Ghost, Shadow and Sun. The video is tethered to the song “Ghost” from the new cd. It is an artistic, emotionally moving message piece based on the concepts of grief and redemption. The video premiered on http://www.antiheromagazine.com on January 13th, 2017 and iavailable on I-tunes. The entire CD will be available on the same sites on February 3rd, 2017 and will be available for purchase on I-tunes, CDbaby.com and most major music e-sites.

A minimum of 30% of all music sales revenues will be donated to a variety of organizations including St. Judes Hospital and Wounded Warriors.

KEEP on ROCKIN’!!!!!!

Marshall Beck’s Reign Of Vengeance Releases Their New Video “In The Club With A Chainsaw”

Death Metal artists Reign Of Vengeance announce the release of the new video for their song “In The Club With A Chainsaw”.

The video footage which was previously vaulted and hidden due to pressing legal matters and was later recovered from the darkest corner of vocalist Marshall Beck’s garage and edited by renowned music video director and producer Matt Zane (Zakk Wylde, DOPE, John 5, Combichrist)

There is nothing intellectual, political, or meaningful about this song or music video. It is straight across non-politically correct gore soaked and horror filled brutality for the sake of itself. If that bothers you then let REIGN OF VENGEANCE know and we’ll dig you a safe space…(a grave).
Marshall Beck Vocalist/Founder

To commemorate the release of the video, Reign In Vengeance released a multi-pack which includes a special edition t-shirt, their album Disemboweling Swine on CD, and a DVD which includes the “In The Club With a Chainsaw” and “She’s Best Kept Headless” music videos and studio recording webisodes.
