UTG PHOTOS: The Decibel Magazine Tour (4/11/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Best Buy Theater in New York City to photograph The Decibel Magazine Tour on April 11, 2014.

In 2014, March Madness came in the form of decades of metal. The Decibel Magazine Tour spanned across 21 cities, traveling between Orlando and Seattle before wrapping up in the Northeast.

The tour featured metal legends Carcass, our friends in The Black Dahlia Murder, Canada’s Gorguts, and the youngsters in Noisem.

Breakdown Of Sanity

Watch Breakdown Of Sanity’s Video For “Hero”

I personally feel that Breakdown Of Sanity are one of the most under appreciated metal acts out there right now. They’re based out of Bern, Switzerland, and last October they released a killer thirteen track album titled Perception. One of the singles off that album is “Hero,” and yesterday the band revealed the powerful music video for the song. You can check it out below the break.

“Hero” is one of the best tracks on the album, and the perfect one to shoot a video for. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to Perception yet, I recommend …


Rockstar Mayhem Festival Announces 2014 Lineup

After months of rumors, speculation and leaks, the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival has officially announced the official lineup for the 2014 edition of the tour. Officially. The trek will be headlined by Avenged Sevenfold, who, surprisingly enough, are playing the festival for the first time, save for a few guest appearances in 2010. They’ll be joined on the main stage by frequently recycled Mayhem acts Korn, Asking Alexandria and Trivium.

But as usual, most of the fun will be had on the side stages, where the wide array of attractions include death metal veterans Cannibal Corpse, Ice …

For Today

Watch For Today’s Video For “Break The Cycle” Featuring Matty Mullins

Fight The Silence is For Today‘s fifth studio album. They released it last month via Razor & Tie Records. The album’s theme overall is about pulling people out of darkness and hate, and one song in particular that carries this message is “Break The Cycle,” featuring Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire. There’s no doubt that For Today is a Christian band, and frontman Mattie Montgomery has made it a point to use his faith to guide his music. The band released a music video for this song, and it’s just about what you might expect from a …

Scott Ian at BB Kings

UTG PHOTOS & REVIEW: Scott Ian’s ‘Speaking Words’ Tour (3/5/14)

Ladies and gentlemen, UTG can now double-confirm that Scott Ian is a very well-spoken, hilarious, and brutally honest man. If you were able to catch our interview with him a little while back, you probably chuckled at some of that charisma while perusing our conversation with him.

When his first ever US spoken word tour came through B.B. King’s in New York City, we were able to check out the show and catch up with Ian afterwards. It was certainly interesting seeing the shredder from Anthrax take stage in a blues club, much less without any other musicians and only …

Check Out The Epic Eleven Minute Debut Single By Cardinal

Cardinal describe themselves as “atmospheric black metal” on their Facebook page. This is a sound that’s hard for me to imagine, but luckily the Houston-based group did the leg work for me and released the debut single from their upcoming EP, Alpine Voice. You can stream the song, titled “Hiraeth,” by taking a look below the break.

The song starts off slow, and has some slow parts throughout it. Don’t let that fool you though, as it definitely packs a punch. If you have eleven minutes to spare, I’d recommend checking this out. You can even pick it up …
