Tanzen "Bottle Kids"

Prog Metal band Tanzen has released a new single called “Bottle Kids”. We love how Teddy effortlessly shifts from a guttural growl to a soaring, clear, clean vocal.

This is the work of Armin Maksumic (Guitar), Demostanis Diakoumakos (Bass), Teddy TanZen (Vocals), and Macklin Suhre (Drums).

You can catch Tanzen at Beat Kitchen on August 10th with Danville, Fools’ Brew, and Contra. (Final Show!).

Head - Power Trio's Rippin' Classic Rock Single "Shudder"

Hard rock trio Head have released their latest single “Shudder”. This classic rock track has a heavy blues influence in the opening riff. This track was produced by Ian Blurton at ProGold studios and has excellent sonic quality. The drums are crisp, the bass rumbles and the guitar shreds. It’s definitely a driving tune that would sound particularly good during these sweaty summer days. Head has been teasing a big announcement is on the horizon so follow their socials and don't miss out on the next hot rock n' roll show from Head. – Kris Gies

The Hands Resist Him

Doom Metal trio The Hands Resist Him released their debut full-length album, Stone Hands, earlier this month. This is the group formed by guitarist/Bassist Eric Mayer, who is now joined by Alex McGady (vocals, guitar), and Ashwinn Torke (drums).

The album’s opening track and lead single, “Collapse”, is a ferocious 11 minute journey through the world of dark and explosive metal. It is also a great introduction to what this trio can do if you are not familiar with their 2018 EP, “Taker"

New Track: "Grasping the Void" - Ecstatic Vision

Ecstatic Vision has a new single, “Grasping the Void,” which is featured on their forthcoming album FOR THE MASSES, due out September 20 via Relapse Records. A chugging bass and bright flurries of flute coexist, creating a weighted, spacey sound. The commanding, tunneling tone of Doug Sabolik's vocals and the fuzz of guitar pulls you further into the vortex. It’s a heavy-psych excursion that you’ll definitely want to explore. Catch the Philly quartet at Underground Arts on Thursday, August 1, with Torche and Wear Your Wounds! (Photo by Gene Smirnov)

Weekend Warrior - July 12 - 14

Dreamswell will be celebrating its debut full-length LP SPOILED with a performance this evening at Boot & Saddle. Haunting, weighted ambiance quakes and shudders throughout the album. The songs sonically realize ominous, brutal, bombarding tones that melodically shred within treacherous terrains. Somehow during those nightmarish, ominous sequences, as the percussion pulverizes, one finds a peaceful, placid, shoegazing perspective. Dreamswell will be supported by the raw, raucous, mesmerizing metal of Witching and the rhythmically rolling, synth-fueled darkwave of SOLD, as well as NYC’s Stay at Home Dads. – Michael Colavita
