French alt-metal rockers Dog'N'Style just released their new album, "Take It Or Leave It", and to celebrate we asked vocalist Joris to tell us about the song "Out 4 Blood". Here is the story:

This album deals with the idea of revenge, hatred, dark & raw emotions. The feeling that was central to the writing of 'OUT 4 BLOOD!' is revenge. This idea came out during a discussion we had together with band about our vision of music. I have that vision or drive which allowed me to be the best version of myself, artistically : revenge. What better way of improving myself than wanting to prove something to people who hate or dislike you? To get to the point in which even these haters can't say something bad about you. (continue)

Doom metallers Patriarchs in Black reveal the new track "A Few Good Men," the third single from their highly anticipated third album, Visioning, set for international release on July 19th via Metalville Records.

Says guitarist Dan Lorenzo about the song, "I wrote 'A Few Good Men' with Kelly Abe. It's the quickest song on the album. Kelly wrote the lyrics." Kelly Abe about the song: "'A Few Good Men' is a homage to the small group of true brothers we have in our lives, who are there for the long haul at times that matter most. It's a commentary on fair-weather friends, acknowledging that camaraderie is easy when times are good, but over time, you come to realize that only true brothers show up when it's inconvenient. 'Camaraderie is fodder on a proper day, for all the friends who spring to leave dismay' - catch the double in that. TIME DON'T LIE." (continue)
