To The Wind release new video for 'Can't Stay (My Love)'

Hardcore/metal band To The Wind released a brand new music video for their song “Can’t Stay (My Love)".

Vocalist Tanner Murphy said: “We could've made videos for every song because they all have significant meaning and we love them all. But, we chose this one in particular because the lyrics express feelings about touring year after year consistently. In the beginning touring is all I wanted to do because I felt that it was all I had. I thought it was the only thing that made me happy. In the last couple of years something slightly changed. As I grew i started having regrets in my personal life. I feel there is a lot I've missed out on because of the constant traveling, but at the same time I feel very accomplished because of all the things I've had the chance to do and see. I wrote most of this song while we were in Toronto recording the record. A lot of my raw emotions were invested into the song. I was very vulnerable and didn't have much time to filter anything out. This song to me is kind of my anthem to all different aspects of my life both on and off the road".

Can’t Stay (My Love)” is featured on To The Wind’s latest album, The Brighter View, which is available now from Pure Noise Records.

Graveshadow signs to M-Theory Audio

Graveshadow, a Female-fronted Symphonic Metal band that incorporates Doom, Thrash and Goth Metal influences, based out of Sacramento, CA and winner of the 2016 "Sammie" (Sacramento Area Music Awards) for best Metal band – is the latest signing to M-Theory Audio.

Since forming at the end of 2012 Graveshadow has created a sound defined by crushing guitars, beautiful keyboard melodies, thundering bass, and earth-shattering drums. The powerful operatic vocals shift into unearthly growls to create a rich and dynamic atmosphere that is ripe for storytelling. Whether it is a tale of personal struggle or of fantastical creatures, the listener is sure to find themselves immersed in a world apart. Releasing an EP in 2014, and a full-length, Nocturnal Resurrection, the following year Graveshadow have toured and played shows with Marty Friedman, Flotsam and Jetsam, Unleash the Archers, Apocalyptica, Children of Bodom, Death Angel, Skinlab, Doyle, Wednesday 13 and John 5. Graveshadow intend to release a new full-length by the end of the year, but until recording this summer they will continue performing live.

"We are extremely excited to be working with Marco and M-Theory. With his status in the industry, belief in this band, and the growing family under the label, we could not think of a better home for our release this year,” states singer Heather Michele. “We are ready to unleash this monster for you all to enjoy, more details soon to come!"

M-Theory Audio is the new label recently launched by Marco Barbieri, who ran the N. American office of Century Media for 14 years, as well as time with Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade. Barbieri has assembled an experienced team previously employed by esteemed labels like Century Media, Prosthetic, Victory and Epitaph Records. The M-Theory roster also includes Bay Area thrash outfit Cultural Warfare, Las Vegas’ power/progressive band Sicocis, Sacramento headbangers Blessed Curse, Nor Cal’s death metal/metalcore group Apothesary and So Cal’s Folk/Pagan Death Metal band Helsott.

“I’ve been following Graveshadow’s evolution the past 2 years, since their manager Jeff Keller brought the young band to my attention,” explains Marco. “In that time I’ve witnessed their commitment and hard work, as well as enjoying their friendly in person, yet fierce on stage live performance. I’m very pleased we will be involved in the continued development of this promising band.”

A Lie Nation to release new EP 'Begin Hate' in April

A Lie Nation 2017

Finnish melodic extreme metal band A Lie Nation will release their second EP, called 'Begin Hate', April 5th, 2017 via Inverse Records.

'Begin Hate' is rough, yet melodic, extreme metal with an original touch that fuses elements from black and death metal with rock-like straightforwardness. The four song EP is a study of negative mindscapes of the human species and it spans from extreme aggression to apocalyptic and self-destructive atmospheres. Heavy hitting rhythms and razor sharp vocals are balanced out with intriguing melodies and smoothly grinding bass lines. 'Begin Hate' does not bow to anyone or anything, but is sure to leave a mark with its energetic destructiveness.

'Begin Hate' track list:
1. Rot of the Spirit
2. Shooting the Messenger
3. Into Black Divine
4. A Burn Afar
