Arch Enemy “Khaos Legions” Update + Pre-Order


Arch Enemy is on the verge of releasing their 9th studio album Khaos Legions!

Drummer Daniel Erlandsson comments on the album:

We had a very inspiring and creative time writing this album. I think this is definitely evident when listening to the new songs. There’s tons of variation in the material, ranging all the way from very melodic to extremely heavy. As you can expect there’s no shortage of killer riffs and intricate guitar work; the Amott brothers [Michael and Chris] have come up with some very cool yet demanding ideas! This album has some of the fastest songs I’ve ever recorded, along with a bunch of heavy pounding mid-tempo songs. As always, it’s difficult to describe music in words, but rest assured — this album will be one heavy f!*ker!

Khaos Legions will be out on June 7 (May 30th in Europe) but is available for pre-order now with a handful of options.

The album’s track listing is below:

01. Khaos Overture (instrumental)
02. Yesterday Is Dead And Gone
03. Bloodstained Cross
04. Under Black Flags We March
05. No Gods, No Masters
06. City Of The Dead
07. Through The Eyes Of A Raven
08. Cruelty Without Beauty
09. We Are A Godless Entity (instrumental)
10. Cult Of Chaos
11. Thorns In My Flesh
12. Turn To Dust (instrumental)
13. Vengeance Is Mine
14. Secrets
15. The Zoo

New Death Set Music Video


The Death Set debuted their latest music video for “Slap Slap Slap Pound Up Down Snap” earlier this week. Answer me this: Who doesn’t like a double-headed tiger setting stuff on fire while driving a moving truck?

The track is the first single from Michel Poiccard. It’s available for download now while the rest of the album can be pre-ordered. Just check out the video and the song because they are both awesome. You can also get brought up to speed with the prequel instructional video from last week.

The New Bayside Album

Our buddies Bayside have been working on this new album for quite some time now and I’m excited that we finally have some more info about it!

The album is titled Killing Time and will be the latest release from the band since 2008. You can find it on selves and online starting February 22nd. Check out the tracklist below:

1. Already Gone
2. Sick, Sick, Sick
3. Mona Lisa
4. Its Not A Bad Little War
5. Sinking and Swimming on Long Island
6. Seeing Sound
7. The Wrong Way
8. On Love, On Life

Give the first single “Already Gone” a listen:

The album is available for pre-order now for a measly $10- and it includes $5 off towards a limited run 7” with an exclusive track of “Sick, Sick, Sick” (acoustic) and “Already Gone.” That makes it half price…and that makes me pretty happy.

Pre-Order Trash Talk’s “Eyes & Nines”

The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings
And why the sea is boiling
And whether you have been insane and not pre-ordered this album yet because it rules

(That’s how it actually is supposed to go)


Trash Talk’s latest release Eyes & Nines is finally available for pre-order- and you have 5 different packages to choose from.

You can grab a CD + Digital Download, a Digital Download only, a 12” vinyl + Digital Download or, and get this, vinyl set with 4 records (limited to 100 pressings). The 5th option? You can add a shirt to any order for only $10. Oh yes- they went there. Plus all orders come with an immediate download of the video and mp3 of “Explode.”

So pre-order. It’s not really a request, but more that I’m telling you to do so. Not so sure what you are waiting for. Maybe you’d like to have a taste of what you’ll be getting? Look no further:
