Nonpoint announce new album: “The Return”

New track “Breaking Skin” streaming on-line now

Nonpoint are set to release their eighth studio album, “The Return,” on September 26/29 via Metal Blade Records (excluding North America). After 17 years in the game, the Florida quintet sustains the same energy that sparked its foundation back in 1997. The riffs crack with intensity, the bass and drums forge an unmatched groove, and the vocals rapidly recount stories of pain and perseverance. “The Return” remains as raw, ripping, and real as these musicians – Elias Soriano [vocals], Robb Rivera [drums], Rasheed Thomas [guitar], Adam Woloszyn [bass], and B.C. Kochmit [guitar] – get.

Stone Circle return from UK TECH FEST with exclusive lyric video, previewing “Easter Island” from the upcoming self titled second album. After sharing the stage with The Algorithm, Aliases and No Consequences, and a successful performance at several warm up shows, Stone Circle are back on the warpath.  “Easter Island” is about the fall of the civilisation that settled on the island, leaving behind the iconic stone heads that are world famous. The video shows various footage of mankind’s takeover of nature, a theme that is repeated within Stone Circle’s albums in various stories. The video suggests that “Easter Island” could be a model of Earth itself.

Two extra, extra acts have been added to the bill! Acoustic duo Tom & Ash and Acoustic virtuoso Sean De Burca will perform as part of the weekend.

Having just played Main stage at last weekend’s UK TECH FEST festival at Newark race course (headlined by Sikth, Monuments and Vildjharta), Brighton/London metallers Meta-Stasis have released their first video from their highly anticipated yet untitled 2nd album.  Featuring stunning graphic design imagery and stop frame animation the “FATHOMLESS” video takes you on a refreshingly complex journey through dubstep and extreme tech death metal and visually into the depraved minds of Meta-stasis. This incredible video makes you question your own consciousness, murder, religion and ultimately the hypocritical judgement of one another.
