News And New Music Roundup: Coheed And Cambria, Warfather, Fuck The Facts And Many More!
Do you have time for music? Come on in!
Coheed And Cambria have not only premiered a new song but also have stated that this upcoming album, The Color Before The Sun, will be the band’s first studio album that shall not be a concept album. It will be released on October’s 9th day. I don’t know if I like it or not, but it reminds me of Rush even more than before, especially in the vocals.
On the 25th day of August will be released Desire Will Rot, the latest album of the Canadian technical, semi-experimental grindcore outfit Fuck the Facts. Should you find yourself wandering over to their Bandcamp page you can pre-order the album for the rather cheap price of $4 CAD. You can also listen to “Solitude” below, ta new song from the new album.
It looks like we may not get new Cryptopsy music after all. The band failed to crowdfund their The Book of Suffering: Tome 1 EP by achieving only 46% of their goal. This is a pretty bad score for a band as big as Cryptopsy, and we should probably learn a lesson from this (I wish I knew what it was). You can’t help them anymore but maybe this motivational video will help you conquer the pain.
Soilwork have released the title song to their upcoming album, The Ride Majestic, out on August 28th through Nuclear Blast. Look – I like Melodeath, okay, but after The Predator’s Portrait they haven’t produced much of interest to me. Truth be told, even those three first albums never ended up on the regular playlist either. This was true until Sworn To A Great Divide brought a few better songs along; ironically this was also the first album to not include the revered songwriter Peter Wichers. The Living Infinite, the second album not to feature him, pretty much proved their best, and this new song seems to continue on this good path, so as far as I am concerned he never needs to come back.
Toilet favorites Black Fast have premiered a song! Not mind blowing, but in no way is it bad. It is to be listened through this link. August 7th is the day upon which Terms of Surrender will be released on eOne Music. Speaking of Black Fast, they are part of a pretty cool tour package that will also include such names as Revocation, Archspire, and Cannabis Corpse. Good for them.
