Memphis May Fire share new video for “Left For Dead”

December 17, 2021

Memphis May Fire close the year 2021 with another new song. Today the band released “Left For Dead”. It’s obvious – the quartet wants to end the year with a sonic highlight. “It’s definitely not the ‘norm’ to release such a heavy song shortly before christmas, but the truth is, there are so many people that suffer through the holidays”, Mullins explains. “Pain is an unavoidable part of human expierence and it doesn’t magically disappear at this time of year. I hope, that everyone who can identify with “Left For Dead”, feels less alone with their pain, especially in a time, where on social media you feel like you’re the only one who’s struggeling. We will donate 100% of our earnings of the “Left For Dead” t-shirt in our online merch store to Beneath the Skin, a charitable organization, which gives young women who feel alone, a real connection through peer-to peer monitoring.” Since 2021 MMF released new songs through their longtime label Rise Records. With both explosive songs “Blood & Water” and “Death Inside” [Read More]

Zero Trust share new animated video for “Clouds”

December 9, 2021

Experimental hardcore outfit Zero Trust shared their ambitious new video for recent single “Clouds”, out now on Rude Records/EVR. The band is a coalition of NJHC and NYHC talent, featuring vocalist BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot, Ghidrah, GMK) guitarists Zack Thorne (Bulldoze, Agents of Man, Skarhead) and Mike Milewski (Bulldoze, Homicidal), bassist and backing vocalist Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria) and drummer Evan Rossiter (Full Scale Riot, Organyc). The group pushes the boundaries of hardcore, metalcore and jagged alternative rock, creating music that is intensely melodic while remaining undeniably aggressive. “Clouds” is a continuation of the bands history of emotive lyricism supported by lighting-in-a-bottle instrumentals. The song oscillates between alternative rock inspired vocals and crushingly heavy breaks that propel the song forward while creating a masterful sense of tension. The angular riffs weave in and out of the melody with caustic results – the song crescendos to an explosive peak that doesn’t sacrifice melodic beauty for heaviness (or vice versa). The official video blends animation with live shots of the band to create a compelling [Read More]
