Alcest Announce 2019 Album 18 replies

The band made the following statement on their Facebook page:

"ALCEST's 6th album is called “Spiritual Instinct“ and will be released on the 25th of October on Nuclear Blast. The recording of “Spiritual Instinct“ has been a long and challenging process, but we feel really proud of it and can't wait to share our new music with all of you. The artwork has been made by the Parisian duo Førtifem and represents a sphinx, as a reference to the symbolism art movement. The sphinx is the ultimate figure of the enigma, which embodies both the spiritual and feral sides inside us."

New/Old Mac Miller Song 11 replies

Out of the potentially endless vault of recently deceased rapper/singer/producer/musician Mac Miller today has come an official new song for the first time since his death in 2018. "That's Life", produced by 88-Keys, likely gestated in the year of recording for GO:OD AM (during which it was rumoured that Mac produced up to six full albums) and was reworked by 88-Keys following Mac's death for final release.

"That's Life" first made its way to the public, in addition to several other songs from various eras of Mac Miller, a few weeks ago in the raw form of a leak. This previous version featured an extended intro and outro with Miller, no appearance from Sia, less horns and more piano in the beat, overall appearing far less polished and radio-friendly than the released version. This final "That's Life" is the first official public release of a Mac Miller song since his final album, 2018's Swimming, although a verse of his appeared on The Free ...more

Drab Majesty shares new song/ music video 4 replies

LA-based gothic rock/ dream-poppers, Drab Majesty have shared a third single from their upcoming album Modern Mirror called, "Oxytocin". Vocalist/keyboardist Mona D says of the new track, "Oxytocin is this fleeting energy of the initial love bond – that seminal semi-permanent spark of enlightenment and obsession only to expire over the course of time and experience."

The actual word, oxytocin, is nicknamed the ‘love hormone’ which means it influences social interaction and sexual reproduction. Implying that the track as whole could also refer to the cheap thrills of sexual contact and human touch (its also used to induce abortions but its highly likely that that is what the song is about).

Dave Mustaine diagnosed with cancer 71 replies

Lead vocalist and founder of Megadeth, Dave Mustaine has officially announced that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer. 57 year old Mustaine addressed the issue via social media in a statement earlier this morning:

"I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on - but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.

Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.

Meanwhile, Kiko, David, Dirk and I are in the studio, working on the follow up to Dystopia – which I can’t wait for everyone to hear.

I’m so thankful for my whole team ...more

Guitarist Derrick Vella says of the song:
“It’s labyrinthian structure leaves you twisting and turning until the shrike has drained you of all your fluids,” he continues. “It’s a perfect representation of what we want to hear in a death metal song. It’s Tomb Mold, from start to finish.”

Drummer/vocalist Max Klebanoff adds:
“‘Accelerative Phenomenae’ is about the culminating event of sorrowful intimacies before your final meeting with death where the lines of self and other are blurred. Your senses are heightened during the final racing of pulses, your cumulative earthly doubts are cast aside to embrace an elegiac ultimate.”
