“The theme of ‘Mark of the Blade‘ is a celebration of Whitechapel being together for ten years and the fans that support us no matter what,” states vocalist Phil Bozeman, and after just one exposure to the record’s 11 riveting tracks, a more fitting tribute is unimaginable. Pushing their sound forward with each successive release, the sextet have never allowed anyone outside of their ranks to dictate or influence the music they write. Mark of the Blade sees them remain true to their roots while making their most dramatic progression to date, the emphasis falling more on groove than blastbeat-driven death metal violence, as well as venturing into previously unexplored territory, both sonically and lyrically. “It’s the most dynamic record we’ve done, in the sense that one song can be very aggressive while the next one will be softer and sentimental,” guitarist Alex Wade asserts. “I think it’s great that we have opened up our sound to just write and play whatever we think sounds good. If it’s soft and has clean singing who cares as long as it’s a good song? I would rather do that than be closed-minded and stick to only the ‘extreme’ side of metal.“
CARNIFEX is something musically unique. What really makes CARNIFEX stand out from the throngs of other Hard Rock acts currently scouring the planet, are their savage live performances. Their declaration to make every night an experience for fans rather than just a show, has proven to be the most appreciated trait of the band among fans. But you can keep your pyrotechnics and other special effects at home as CARNIFEX relies solely on the power of their music. “Every night, we strive to play extremely tight. Sometimes it can be difficult to make such an intense show so interactive, but we make sure that everyone is getting involved,” says Lewis.
Rings Of Saturn
RINGS OF SATURN is an internationally touring band based out of California where their founding member, Lucas Mann, resides. The band self-released their first full-length album entitled Embryonic Anomaly in late 2009. Four months later Unique Leader Records signed the band and Embryonic Anomaly was re-released internationally under the label on May 28, 2010. Since then, Rings of Saturn has been hard at work touring nationally throughout the United States and Canada promoting Dingir (din-jeer) as well as their latest album release entitled Lugal Ki En which was released October 2014. With the release of Lugal Ki En Rings of Saturn branched out touring including an appearance at the 2015 edition of Knotfest and their first and very successful European Tour early 2016 with Aversion’s Crown. 2016 will see the band embark on another North American tour before heading back into the studio to record their 4th full-length album which will be released world wide on Nuclear Blast Records.
