New Silverstein Song 18 replies

Post-hardcore gang Silverstein shared the brand new song 'It's Over'. The official music video can be seen below.

Guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau states: "This song is the spiral that leads to giving up. Those anxiety packed hours when you can't feel anything but the low, steady crescendo of panic that eventually gets so intense your fingertips lose sensation. It's hopeless to feel but pointless to endure. I didn't learn anything from feeling that way. I just wanted it to stop."

Sweden's Opeth have announced on their social media that their longtime drummer, Martin Axenrot, has left the band due to conflict of interest. The statement goes as follows:

"Due to a conflict of interests, Martin Axenrot is no longer part of the Opeth collective,” an official statement reads.

I will say my approach has changed after all these years of making music. I found new and different ways to shape the arrangements and my compositions. What matters most, I think, is that it still has the Shape of Despair atmosphere."

"Return to the Void is a title we thought would best describe the album," says Koivula. "It is a return for us in many ways. We were heading [musically] towards early Shape of Despair. ...more

R.I.P. Greg Mayne 4 replies

The legendary doom band shared the very sad news:

"We lost a hard rock / heavy metal pioneer. With heavy heart, I regret to inform you that Greg Mayne lost his battle with stage four lung cancer. He was one of the most talented, easy going, humble, insightful, agreeable musicians I have ever worked with.

His part in the early Pentagram days was crucial. It brings me small solace knowing that his playing and music has finally been heard and enjoyed by millions of people across the world. I am so happy that he took the stage for the one and only ever Bedemon performance in 2015. Seeing him get to shake hands and hug some of his fans was a joy I will always hold. Let’s celebrate his music now and forever. His impact and influence is still flourishing. Rest In Power.

Jazz musician and journalist Colman Jones had the following to say about Goodsall after his passing:

“So sorry to hear this sad news about Brand X guitarist @JohnGoodsall from ex-bandmate Percy Jones.. Goodsall, the only remaining original member, had been ill with Pneumonia, leading to the postponement of the current @OfficialBrandX tour.. no idea whether the band will continue.”
