UTG TV: Rockstar Mayhem Fest 2014 With Islander

Serving as one of the truly up-and-coming acts on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014, Islander seemingly had a lot to prove. That didn’t manage to have an effect on the guys keeping it cool, though. Believe it or not, by the time UTG TV spoke to them in Scranton, they’d already become friends with the guys in Korn and had Suicide Silence watching their set from backstage.

During our interview, we felt the need to state the obvious and address how different Islander seemed from the rest of the lineup. The guys chuckled at the notion, agreeing but not being …

UTG TV: Rockstar Mayhem Fest 2014 With Ill Niño

“All metal bands, whether you’re in your 20s, whether you’re 18…30…40…you obviously want to turn the youth of America into a metalhead.”

Fourteen years ago Cristian Machado stepped up from bass to lead vocals for the NJ based Latin Metal rockers Ill Niño. On July 22 of this year the band dropped their seventh studio album, Till Death, La Familia, via Victory Records. The timing was perfect to coincide with their run on the Rockstar Mayhem Fest 2014 alongside Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium, and many more.

UTG’s John Bazley spoke with Cristian about his time spent on the …

UTG TV: ETID Meets CYE At Warped 2014

We here at Under The Gun Review like to consider ourselves family. For us, it’s important to keep in mind that the music community is in fact a community. At events like Warped Tour, you get to meet a lot of new people. UTG TV was able to bring together Close Your Eyes and Every Time I Die for the first time.

I’m sure you remember UTG TV’s segment entitled ‘Boozin’ With Buckley‘ we ran with Keith from Every Time I Die not too long ago. Well, unfortunately we couldn’t have a second installment of the boozing (considering …

Terror Release Music Video For “Shot Of Reality”

Hardcore veterans Terror have released their new music video for “Shot Of Reality” over at AltPress. The video includes live and behind the scenes footage of the band’s recent tour.

Terror released their newest record Live By The Code last year via Victory Records, their first for the label. The band is currently out on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, where they’re ripping day in and day out on the Monster Energy Stage. As one of the better hardcore groups on the tour, I highly recommend checking out their set.

The video can be seen over at Alt Press, …

STREAM: Emmure – ‘Eternal Enemies’

There’s been a lot of buzz regarding Emmure’s forthcoming LP, Eternal Enemies, which hits shelves tomorrow (April 15) through Victory Records. Given, most of that buzz has been criticism, easy come easy go, right?

Following the release of two music videos (“Nemesis,” “Like LaMotta”), earlier today the group continued to hype their newest effort by streaming it in full a day ahead of its actual release. Check it out after the break.

Incredibly predictable and not the least bit forward-thinking, if you enjoy being sworn at by Frankie Palmeri for over an hour, you …

We have been covering Feed Her To The Sharks for the last several years and could not be more thrilled to learn a label has finally decided to give them the financial support needed to take their career to the next level. Our only …

Even Emmure Look Bored Listening To Their New Song

Whenever a band makes it their business to try and push the boundaries of music and good taste they run the risk of eventually painting themselves into a corner. After more than half a decade of touring and a steady stream of new material every eighteen months or so, it seems Emmure have finally reached this point themselves, and it does not bode well for their upcoming studio album.

Over the weekend, a new song from Emmure titled “Nemesis” found its way online. It’s the first song to surface from the upcoming album Eternal Enemies, and in sticking with …

Comeback Kid Die Knowing

REVIEW: Comeback Kid – ‘Die Knowing’

Artist: Comeback Kid
Album: Die Knowing
Genre: Hardcore
Label: Victory Records

There’s been something of an “it” factor that Comeback Kid have possessed which has kept them in such high regard within the heavy music community for the past 14 years of the band’s existence. As far as hardcore groups with a more polished sound goes, this Winnipeg quintet have set the standard of what hardcore should sound like time and time again. The ripple effect of influence created by CBK’s past work, such as with their 2005 breakout record Wake the Dead, can still clearly be noticed through …

Comeback Kid

MUSIC VIDEO: Comeback Kid – “Should Know Better”

Last month, Comeback Kid announced that their fifth studio album, Die Knowing, would be released on March 4 through their longtime label, Victory Records. Since then, the group has been promoting their upcoming full-length, their first since 2010′s Symptoms & Cures, vigorously.

The Canadian punks continued their campaign this morning by debuting a music video for their newest single, “Should Know Better,” over at FUSE. Check it out here.

The abrasive track falls just short of two-and-a-half minutes, while the clip itself highlights the outfit’s synonymously rambunctious live performance, which isn’t surprising considering frontman Andrew Neufeld …

Co-Founder Of Emmure Calls Band & Label Out, Threatens Lawsuits

Yesterday, Emmure announced the details for their upcoming full-length album, Eternal Enemies. The group has come under fire in the past for releasing offensive merchandise, and now they are receiving criticism for one of the song titles on the new album. This time though, the band has offended their ex-founding member, Ben Lionetti. It seems that he could no longer keep to himself about the direction the band is heading, and released a statement calling out the band and threatening legal action against them and Victory. It’s not apparent right away why he would seek litigation, however, he does …

UTG Premiere: The Bunny The Bear – “High Tides And Swimming Conditions”

Pre-orders are available now.

Hawthorne Heights Announce ‘The Silence In Black And White’ World Tour

Very few albums have captivated and influenced our music scene like The Silence In Black and White, the 2004 debut from Ohio’s Hawthorne Heights. Ten years later, the band will be commemorating the platinum-selling record with a world tour at which they will be performing The Silence In Black and White front to back.

You can see the first set of announced dates, which will take place in Europe, after the break. The tour kicks off April 8 in Dublin, Ireland and runs through the beginning of May. Fans in other parts of the world need not feel …
