RIG TIME! Releases Official Music Video for “No Faith”

NO FAITH SINGLE ARTWORK

Wisconsin based Hardcore Metal Band RIG TIME! has released the official music video for their new single, “NO FAITH.”

Player

“’NO FAITH’ is a bleak declaration about giving up and a satirical response encouraging one to forgo their community. The lyrics declare “You’ll never miss what you never loved” to invoke inner dialogue, asking oneself if they truly love the setting they are a part of .“No faith in the future, No reason to survive” is a blunt submission to ponder if what the effort you offer is worth. The song is in the eye of the beholder, to offer two paths and let the individual decide what matters to them.” – RIG TIME!

RIG TIME! is an angry, caustic and vehemently heavy force based in La Crosse, WI. The band has performed 300+ shows, in 39 states and counting, since 2015. Holding true to the idea of “All Ages Or Nothing” the band has relentlessly toured across the US performing at only all ages events and resonating their substantial live sound while stressing the message that live music is for all. Deeply rooted in the DIY attitude, RIG TIME! is a determined and passionate ensemble with strong work ethic and a vital purpose.

Their recent full length album War was released on October 20, 2017 via Innerstrength Records, following the self released full-length Sick of It (2016) and two EP’s (2014’s Awful and 2015’s Devout). Featuring a sound that is the audio equivalent of a tank column entering a besieged city, the crunch and clangor of War is a game-changer. Forged in the fires of hardcore, sludge, and powerviolence, War epitomizes RIG TIME!‘s scorched-earth tactics and demonstrates the natural chemistry of the band.

Vocalist/Drummer, Bryan W. Fleming provides intensity and indignant passion to a wave of sullen and unrelenting baritone guitar riffs, forcefully delivered by Rebecca Fleming with massive low end impact and ferocity.

All of us can easily relate to this type of song and we all know that feeling of happiness when the weekend rolls around. “Do It Again” soars with its driving bass guitar, heavy drums, guitar tones that are dialed in just right and that feeling that it’s party time so let’s “blow off some steam”. – SAY NEVER

A band is not created solely from a group of people deciding to get into a room and write music together, it’s not that simple. Once you’ve found that ‘sound’, it becomes impossible to ignore that you’re now bound to these songs you find yourself pouring every last drop of blood, sweat, and tears into. You will, quite literally, fight for them. It is with those individuals that make up a truly unique and inspiring band. Carpathia and its members have a history, and it all started with Bobby Drinkwater. As an East Boston, Massachusetts native, Bobby has been consistently involved in music, and in 2016 started a nameless band with long term goals. Bobby keeps the conversations short, but has so much to say behind his instruments. Bobby plays multiple instruments including guitar, violin, piano, and drums. Bobby first found co-member Jason Barsotti to join his new project. Born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts, Jason first picked up his drum sticks at the age of 10, and his long term practice has lead him to a fast paced, hard hitting sound that resonates. Jason’s humble and pleasant personality quickly takes a backseat when he steps behind his drumkit. Bobby had continued his search in bandmates close to home when joining forces with Andrew Miller, the two had met and worked together in a previous project back in 2014. Andrew is from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but has resided in Lynn, Massachusetts since 2013. Throughout Andrew’s life he has been surrounded by family and friends who have been hitting stages in music and comedy. It is no wonder that Andrew’s charismatic humor filled personality would follow in similar footsteps. Andrew has played guitar long term in a number of bands both in North Carolina, and Massachusetts. He had transitioned to playing bass in 2013 for a previous project and found his own unique sound in the process. These three musicians had wrote and played music together between 2016 and 2017 as an instrumental band while trialing a number of potential vocalists. Finally, in January 2017, Samantha Alice of North Kingstown, Rhode Island joined as the last vital part of this project. Samantha brought her strong vocal skills and even stronger personality to the group. Samantha’s history in singing has taken her from talent competitions to all state choir, and beyond. Samantha was first approached by Bobby after meeting at a local show and sparked an interest in trying out for his new project. It took no time at all for the solidification of this band to come to completion and Carpathia was officially named as such on April 22, of 2017.

Killing Us Slowly Cover

Los Angeles, CA based Metal Band AGAINST THE GRAVEhas released the official music video for their debut single, “Killing Us Slowly.” An aggressive soaked, groove dominated, riff-driven, vigorous, infectious dark track, “Killing Us Slowly” was directed, shot, and edited by Nathan Karma Cox.

Player

“This video was a lot of fun to make, especially with Nathan Cox at the helm!! We’ve worked with him in the past & his vision & final product is always top shelf. We had a day of sun, fun, beer, cool cars & all the homies came out to hang & help any way they could. Definitely one of the most enjoyable video shoots we’ve ever done!!” – Jay Dot CA (Bassist)

Inspiration can sometimes be found, just lurking around the corner.

An unlikely alignment of solitary spirits from all around the world, brought together by none other than Metal itself. This uncanny formation culminates a fire of heavy metal power, hard rock passion, and electric force. Tuned much in the vein of metal legends PanteraSlipknot, and Five Finger Death Punch, Against the Grave brings new damage to the heavy metal lifestyle.

“We just clicked, immediately, almost as if we had been writing together for years, the music just simply erupted.” Asserts Jordan Gaw, vocalist of Against The Grave

“‘Killing us Slowly‘ is pure blunt force trauma, it’s my favorite song right now, Nathan did such a great job on the video!” exclaims Andrea Martis guitarist of Against the Grave

Dead (repeater)” is another glimpse at the horsepower resonating from the depths of a grimy downtown Los Angeles rehearsal studio. Give it a spin, see how long you last, don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Newly ignited, just don’t be fooled, hailing from the ashes of Final Drive & *Media Solution*fame, expect a hell of a lot more out of this gang of metalheads as they rage a new path of pure will, determination and glory. Make some noise for Against the Grave.

BLOOD BATH AND BEYOND Release Official Music Video for Metal Cover of BRITNEY SPEARS’S “Hold It Against Me”

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

A Day To Remember meets Demi LovatoKaty Perry meets Killswitch Engage! Pop Goes Heavy Metal when B3 takes the stage!

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.
