Fans of Italian metal will recognize Alessandro's name; this is a man full of talent and dark creativity! He is a well-known musician, record producer and author, best known by the stage name Lord Vampyr (or L.V.). Internationally recognized from his bands Theatres des Vampires, Alex Nunziati Project, Cain, Lord Vampyr, Nailed God, Shadowsreign, and many others, Alessandro has garnered a Huge global fan base, which has greatly expanded with the success of MALAMORTE! MALAMORTE's six prior albums, "The Fall of Babylon" (2014), "Devilish Illusions" (2016), "Satan Goes to Heaven to Destroy the Kingdom of God" (2017), "Hell for All" (2019) and the critically acclaimed, radio chart toping albums "God Needs Evil" (2021) and "Mass Cult Suicide" (2021) have catapulted the band to the forefront of the modern "New Wave of True Heavy Metal' movement! The band's sound, rooted within the mainstream occult rock / horror metal / true heavy metal / thrash style, has been refined to perfection!

MALAMORTE now returns with the massive new horror-metal masterpiece and magnum opus "Omen"! As the title suggest, the lyrical themes are based on the 1976 classic Horror movie "The Omen". However, much more than just lyrical themes, the album is a full concept album paying homage to the horror classic. "Omen" also sees the "New Metal Messiah" morph both in character and thematically into The Antichrist! Featuring the radio killers "Megiddo", "The Son of the Devil" & "The Truth Buried in the Cemetery", "Omen" is a 1st class horror metal and heavy metal masterpiece, filled with monster riffs and anthemic choruses! "Omen" is unquestionably Malamorte's magnum opus to dateThe New Metal Messiah reveals himself to be the Antichrist!!!

Long Island hardcore band Stray From The path have announce their new album "Euthanasia". It will be released via UNFD on 9/9.
Stray has always used our songs as an outlet to speak against oppression", say the members of SFTP. "It's been close to 10 years, and now our third instalment of the Badge And A Bullet series entitled III has the same target. Policing in the United States has always been rooted in racism, hate and violence. Public funding for police departments has skyrocketed since the 1980s. The U.S. now spends more than twice as much on police as it does social welfare programs. Many major cities spend over a third of their budgets on police. Despite the hundreds of billions of federal, state and local money poured into police departments and the corrections industry every year, there is little oversight. The outcomes have been fucking horse shit.

Undisputed masters of murderous riffs, pugnacious grooves and ferocious hooks since 1991, Machine Head are long established as one of the most influential and incendiary bands in the metal world. From genre-expanding triumphs like 1994's debut, Burn My Eyes, 1999's The Burning Red to the planet-conquering might of 2007's The Blackening, to the new life injected in 2014's Bloodstone and Diamonds, Machine Head have carved a singular path across the globe for over three decades now with no end in sight. Whether it be marathon 3 hour live performances, or millions of albums sold worldwide, and accolades both big and small, there aren't too many "distractions" clouding up the vision of Guitarist/Vocalist/Founder Robb Flynn these days. In 2022, Machine Head are back with their most crushing and complete album yet. F KINGDM AND CRWN is an hour-long conceptual monolith, rich in colour and dynamics but hell-bent on destruction. Set in a futuristic wasteland where the sky is always crimson red, F KINGDM AND CRWN tells the tale of two characters, both faced with incalculable trauma, whose stories become bloodily entwined as this deep, dark record progresses. "The album and concept was loosely inspired by the Japanese anime series Attack On Titan," says Robb, "in the sense that in that series, there is no "good" or "bad" guy... both sides believe they're doing the right thing, but both are committing atrocities and evil." Album opener, "SLAUGHTER THE MARTYR," sets the tone for not only the record, but the aural and psychological exploration the listener is about to embark on. From the first dissonant note, it's certain this is not only fresh canvas spelled out with lead vocalist Robb Flynn and bassist Jared MacEachern's soaring vocal harmonies, but it's intent is as furious as anything the band has ever come up with. This track also begins the journey of our protagonists. Further exploration of the damaged psyche blasts forth on "CHKE N THE ASHES F YUR HATE," a searing back and forth dose of Thrash Metal that could only come from the roots of the Bay Area. Unrelenting in it's attack, the breakneck pace only solidifies this as one of many standouts on F KINGDM AND CRWN. From the adrenaline rush of exorcising their inner demons to the innate feeling of solitude and regret comes "UNHALLWED." A dramatic introspective of questioning one's motives and the fallout when the debts our expended emotions come to collect. Hopeless, lost, and isolated, protagonist #2 begins the transformation from victim to victimizer over the melodic chaos courtesy of guitarist Vogg Kieltyka. Radicalized, paranoid, and armed with a dead-end stare, the mental onslaught ignites with the song, "KILL THY ENEMIES." The whiplash inducing thoughts pair up nicely with some of the thickest grooves on the album. The album ends with arguably the finest song Machine Head have ever written: "ARRWS IN WRDS FRM THE SKY", the grandiose but emotionally visceral climax to the finest and most ferocious album of the band's 30 year career. A perennially vital force in heavy music, Machine Head have continued their exhilarating evolution, while never losing the furious spirit of their old school, underground roots.

2022 release. "The Callous Daoboys are easily one of the catchiest and extraordinary hardcore bands of the last few years. [A] fresh young band giving hope that the mathcore scene won't die off." - Exclaim! The recklessly free-spirited collective from Atlanta, Georgia, revels in high-strung extremity, music that's somehow dense, impenetrable, and chaotic yet confusingly inviting. An undeniable life-affirming glee is palpable as each song deliriously swerves across stylistic lines. Contemplation and self-awareness run throughout Celebrity Therapist. "The whole album is about history repeating itself and how we kind of move in circles. It's two steps forward and three steps back with a bunch of people in my life. The album is me reflecting on these people but realizing I'm guilty of the same at the end of the record. There are a lot of 'fuck you' songs because every heavy band likes writing those. But overall, the lyrics are more introspective and quite loving."

I Am

Eternal Steel

CD: $13.98 UNAVAILABLE
Across three full-length slabs of bludgeoning intensity and snarling rage, I Am put a Southern stamp and revitalized swagger into deathcore, a subgenre rarely as raw, energized, and diverse as this band. In the spirit of fellow Southern icons Pantera and newer Texan heroes Power Trip, I Am channel discontent and anger into empowering anthems, as likely to inspire a grueling workout as to incite the pit. Reminiscent of the combination of death metal heaviness and thrash metal speed found in the early catalog of Sepultura, I Am mine the heaviness of Morbid Angel and the dexterity of the Big 4 to create something groundbreaking of their own. Vocalist Andrew Hileman (who started the band in 2011), guitarists Tom Reyes and Chris Burgess, bassist Erik Rodriguez and drummer Ian Scott deliver their Texas Death in clubs, theaters, and festivals, with bands like The Acacia Strain and Kublai Khan. Eternal Steel, the quintet's debut for MNRK, combines the onslaught of the well-received Hard 2 Kill (2018) with the primal bite of Life Through Torment (2017) into a singular statement of intent. "We took what we did well on Hard 2 Kill to new extremes on Eternal Steel," notes Reyes. "It's faster than the last album, it's heavier than the last album, and it expands on every other aspect of our sound. 'Heavy' doesn't always have to mean 'slow.' Frequently for us, the faster parts are equally as heavy."
