Dead Icarus, the new project of former Atreyu lead vocalist and Gold-selling artist Alex Varkatzas, has shared the video for the new track "The Vultures Circle."
"Hands down, this is the heaviest song I've ever been been involved with," Varkatzas says. "It's an 'F you' to the cancel culture that has infected society. 'Savior, Saint, Sinner, or Thief. Live long enough you'll die one of these.' It doesn't matter what's living inside you; it's just about what people wanna believe." (continue)
Devin Townsend celebrates the 25th anniversary of his landmark solo album 'Infinity' in 2023, with a brand new edition of the record being released on November 24th, 2023. This newly remastered version of the album comes as a Limited 2CD Digipak, Gatefold 180g 2LP + LP-booklet & as Digital album, and includes all the bonus tracks from this era, as well as newly shot artwork & liner notes from Devin.
Devin comments: "As I move into a new phase of my work, (one that requires the next two years to be spent writing and recording), I reflect on the Infinity album and the period it all happened in many ways. This was my first attempt at engineering and mixing an album, and without it, I wouldn't have gotten where I am now on a technical level. It was like going to college at the time, and although it is primitive in many ways, it also reminded me of the amount of passion it takes to reach a new level. The whole process during the making of this album was fraught with learning, turmoil, growth, and psychological development. In fact: I didn't think at the time that I would even get through it, (let alone be here 25 years later writing and working with the hard-won experience that came as a direct result of making 'Infinity'). I realize now how pivotal this period of expression was for me, and how it was a testament to tenacity in the long run. As such, I'm proud that we've decided to re-release the record with all the bonus tracks and personal artwork from that period in one place. I was even asked to do an updated version of the naked cover album cover (!!!) so in the name of authenticity... I did that too. I believe this to be the quintessential version of the record. It was a statement then as it is now. And for those who were there during that period as well as those who are perhaps interested in how it all began, I present to you 'Infinity' in an updated fashion. I'm grateful for the opportunity to release it in this light and thank you all for the support all these years. Please wish me luck as I delve into this next phase, and being able to reflect on 'Infinity' during the start of this process has proven to be very useful." (continue)

RIOT (V) have announced that have inked a deal with Atomic Fire Records. Earsplit sent over the following details: RIOT: A band name that makes every metalhead's mind ring alert. With countless iconic musicians and bands listing them as a significant influence, the New York City-based group has undeniably paved the way for the hard 'n' heavy music scene. Their early musical outputs such as 1977's Rock City, 1979's Narita, 1981's Fire Down Under, and 1982's Restless Breed saw the band's growth from hard rock to more metal sounds which eventually led to their most iconic record, 1988's Thundersteel.
The band's path was unfortunately also marked by many strokes of fate causing significant lineup changes. The death of founding member Mark Reale had an immense impact on the group. Eventually Reale's Thundersteel bandmate and songwriting partner Don Van Stavern decided to continue the band's legacy and, out of respect for Reale, added "V" (Roman numeral five) to represent the fifth chapter of the group as well as the recorded singer. 2013 was the year that RIOT (V) was born!
