SHELFLIFE is thrilled to announce AIRIEL’S second full-length LP, “Molten Young Lovers”, the much-anticipated follow-up to 2012’s “Kid Games EP”. “Cloudburst,” the record’s first single (which was released this past March), provides a clear insight into the record’s magic. The huge chorus is carried by a vocal melody that stands out as the largest part, only complimented by the waves of cascading guitar. “Molten Young Lovers” is a record too loud, too big, and too beautiful to be ignored.
CORMORANT is a progressive black/death metal band from Petaluma, CA that formed in 2007. In addition to performing hundreds of shows throughout the Bay Area and US tours as well. “Diaspora” is their fourth LP and the follow-up to 2014’s “Earth Diver”. With four songs that total 61 minutes, the album features the band’s longest, most detail-oriented compositions to date—the collective result of two years of collaborative writing!
Evolution often happens at just the right time. Six years deep into their career, SEAWAY progress the patented pop punk prowess that put them on the map with sharper songcraft and a nod to the nineties on their third full-length record, “Vacation”. The Ontario, Canada quintet confidently step up their game across the board, while maintaining the spark that ignited a fervent fan base. Head over to PURE NOISE RECORDS to grab yo’ self a copy!
Since their beginning in 2013, REBUILDER has refused to follow the rules. Their first show was at a bar in Boston playing to no one. Their second show was playing to a sold-out crowd with The Dropkick Murphys – That’s definitely against the rules. Their newest release on PANIC STATE RECORDS, an EP entitled “Sounds from the Massachusetts Turnpike”, is a fervent and rambunctious follow up to ‘RNRIA’. With power and intensity, this record widens and solidifies REBUILDER’S sonic footprint in the landscape of rock and roll, re-thinking the traditional three chord punk song and developing their own unique style. Check them out on tour starting end of October!
Lock your doors and bolt your windows as longstanding Gore Metal maniacs, EXHUMED reemerge with their disgusting new album “Death Revenge”. The band’s 6th full-length sees them tread into ambitious new territory with their first concept album; a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. “Death Revenge” tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders committed in order to sell the victims’ cadavers to anatomists, and the grisly underground trade of grave-robbery in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland. Check it out over at RELAPSE RECORDS!
With a host of fantastic albums released by their contemporaries lately, SPIRIT ADRIFT has taken their craft to an ascendent new level on ‘Curse Of Conception’ earning their rightful place among the top tier of modern metal bands clawing their way above and beyond the underground scene. Now more than at any time metal has become the lifeblood of rock music and Spirit Adrift offer ‘Curse Of Conception’ as an embodiment of that perseverant vitality.
