B3 Photo

Heavy Metal/Metalcore band BLOOD BATH AND BEYOND has released the official music video for their metal re-imaging of the 2010 Britney Spears’s hit pop single, “Hold it Against Me.”

Player

“We choose this song to re-work first, because it is popular and second because it has a hidden gem of a beat to it. We were able to really bring out the rhythm of this otherwise synthesizer fueled (Original Version from B. Spears) song, give it some edge and people seem to gravitate to it. The fun thing about B3 is we are seeing fans of various genres enjoying what we do, HIAM provides a taste of most of what we do and is honestly a great choice to be the first mastered single we provide. ” – BLOOD BATH AND BEYOND

The members of Blood Bath and Beyond converged onto Jacksonville, Florida in 2015 from all over the USA. Chaz Winter from New York (Vocals) met with Chet Lewis from Texas (Guitar) to discuss creating a band unlike anything currently available to the music enthusiasts of Jacksonville.

After a long, arduous search, “B3” was officially born in 2016 with the addition of Indiana’s Zach Harris (Drums) and New Jersey’s Jay Habermas (Guitar). The band quickly exploded in popularity, bringing a unique sound and unconventional stage presence to a local/regional metal scene that had grown increasingly stagnant in prior years. After 3 years, Blood Bath and Beyond has chosen to release “Hold it Against Me” (B. Spears) as their first official release as the song “Just gets people bouncing” and “Seems to be successful across fans of various genres”

The band is currently working on several audio and video projects, as well as expansion into new regional markets.

Ven Scott (Runescarred, ex-Dead Earth Politics) Directorial Debut “DATE FROM HELL” Horror Short Review Request

DFH Movie Poster

Austin, Texas heavy metal frontman, Ven Scott (Runescarred, ex-Dead Earth Politics), has completed his directorial debut “DATE FROM HELL”.

Player

Running at just under twelve minutes, “Date From Hell” is currently being submitted to festivals across the U.S., Canada and beyond. Filmed over a period of three nights in Llano, Texas the goal was to create a film clearly inspired by 1980’s horror masters. Of the film Scott says, “This became way more than I imagined. Much bigger than I hoped, and I am incredibly proud of this. The friendship and guidance from both Brandon Torres (cinematographer/producer) and Tracee Beebe (co-writer/producer) was and remains immeasurable. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!”

Scott adds that he hopes to make the film available to the public late in 2019, after the festival circuit has completed for the film.

SYNOPSIS:

Bobby and Susie find themselves on the worst date ever, pursued by a lone drifter with murder on his mind. The drifter is unrelenting, relishing the hunt and claiming his victims.

Early Praise for “Date From Hell:

“This film was a really nice surprise and I don’t think the title does it justice – not that I can think of a better one – because for some reason I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. What’s nice is that I really believe the main couple throughout every point of the film and, when we see the scene of them arguing in the bar, you think “oh man, here we go again”, because you probably know ‘that couple’ from your own local.” – HorrorNews.net

“utterly compelling and a great tribute to those 80’s movies us horror fans hold so dear and I would certainly pay good money to see more. What seems like a labour of love for Ven Scott, will hopefully help to propel him into the major leagues so that in the near future we can all enjoy Date From Hell on the big screen” – Chris Andrews – Mass Movement

“Date From Hell tosses in quite a bit of gore then a little more in just the right ways. If this debut short from Ven Scott is any indicator of the guy’s talent behind the camera, here’s hoping this isn’t the last we hear from him.” – Richard Propes – The Independent Critic

“If you see Date From Hell playing at a festival near you, make sure you get your arcane ass in a seat toot-fuckin’-sweet…a better short you’d be hard pressed to find in our beloved horror biz!” – Horror Fuel

Joyous Wolf is a Rock band from Southern California formed in 2014 by vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio, and drummer Robert Sodaro. Reese and Sodaro met on their first day of 6th grade during student orientation. They went to different high schools where Sodaro would go on to befriend Braccio. During that time Reese, by chance, met Allard in the acoustic room at Guitar Center where they would jam CCR’s “Born on the Bayou”. There was an immediate dynamic between the two that ultimately led to an exchange of information. Months later Reese reached out to both Sodaro and Allard with the interest of starting a new project with them. Braccio would soon follow suit.

In the waning months of 2014 early jam sessions would yield the foundation of what Joyous Wolf has become. Fusing together influences ranging from Heavy Metal to Delta Blues, Joyous Wolf creates an expressive, high-energy fingerprint that separates themselves from their contemporaries in the realm of Modern Rock.

Shokran started as a Groove/Djent/Oriental Metal solo project by Dmitry Demyanenko in 2012, with the debut EP Sixth Sense. In 2014, the solo project transformed into a full-time band, and Shokran released its debut album Supreme Truth followed by extensive Russian tours & critical acclaim. As the group found their footing, there was a change in the line-up, and they were joined by their current singer, Andrew Ivashchenko, and bass player Valery Yushkevich.

The band was set to release their 2nd album entitled Exodus in 2015 but delayed the release after receiving interest from several record labels including Sumerian Records. During the negotiations, no agreements were ultimately reached, and the band decided to release Exodus on their own in September 2016. It was a conceptual work, that describes the 10 Plagues of Egypt, each song on Exodus tells about each Plague. The record took the band to an altogether higher level. Shokran gained new fans around the world, reunited with their original bass player Rodion Shevchenko, completed several more tours and began to compose their latest album ETHEREAL, which was released on February 8th, 2019 and debuted #2 on the U.S iTunes Top 100 Heavy metal albums.
