Ultragore Records artist Drop Goblin has teamed up with Bloody-Disgusting to stream his upcoming EP The Gate, which is heavily influenced by the 1987 Tibor Takács horror film of the same name. The EP will be released Monday, May 6th via Ultragore Records. Below you can listen to the full EP as well as snag a free download of “The Gate (Vocal Edit)”.
Drop Goblin states, “The Gate is completely horror themed and tells a story of demonic domination inspired by the 1987 film. Each element is custom layered using aggressive Dubstep production and Heavy-Metal guitar riff-age to tell the story of a Demon walking through the gate to cause havoc to the world, and to further define the term ‘Metalstep’”

UK tech metal band Aliases have released a music video for their new track “Exasperated”, which comes from the band’s upcoming debut album (out later this year via Basick Records). The single is also the band’s first release with new singer Joe Rosser.
Comments new vocalist Rosser, “It’s been great to bond with a group of musicians with the same sort of outlook on music as me. I think the moment we shared ideas we gelled together really well. Not only that but the fact that they are such great people to be around, we have become good friends. Working on the single has been so much fun. From laying down ideas to progressing it to a full length song, it more or less took its course and the rest of the bend felt what I added gave it a better twist than they anticipated. Recording the video was insane. Lack of sleep, lots of energy drinks and a huge office block with a DIY bedroom set…. It couldn’t have been more surreal! Ben Herbert who directed it was so sound to work with and brought out the best in the ideas we had for the visual aspect of it all. I’ve admired the band for some time and never thought I could match the standard, but it seems this time I proved myself wrong and I am looking forward to a progressive future with Aliases. It’s gonna be a blast!”

True story: I did some hospital clinical trials when I was younger. Why, you ask? Because the money was f*cking great! Three days of my time and I walked out with $500 in cold hard cash. Not bad, right? Sure, I’ve begun tasting colors and hearing tastes, but that’s nothing to be worried about…right?
Well, ANiMAL-MUSIC (feat. Mary Magdalan) are here to show you the horrors of clinical trials with their video for “Jump”.
“This psychological horror will leave you shocked and bemused. Influenced by growing up watching Horror-B movies in an attic in Wales. $3000 for a few hours of clinical trials, whats the worst that can happen?…” – Andrew Thomas Mckenzie
“The song is about the fact if there are no barriers when it comes to sick music. Badass is appreciated by everyone.” – Mary Magdalan

I love a good mashup, especially when it takes older songs that have been played nearly to death and breathes some new life into them. Now, don’t get me wrong here, okay? I love Led Zeppelin‘s “A Whole Lotta Love” and The Beatles‘ “Helter Skelter” is widely considered to be the first heavy metal song ever written, so I give credit where credit is due. But I’ve heard each of these songs so many times that I just wanna put my fingers in ears and scream, “NANANANANANA!” whenever they come on.
However, a new mashup entitled “Whole Lotta Helter Skelter” by Soundhog gave the songs a new feel for me and I’m loving it! You can listen to the song below AND download it for free! Check it out. READ MORE
