“…undoubtedly one of the most exciting young acts in Britain right now…”
 – Powerplay Magazine
 
“Crushing joy from one of metal’s truly pioneering bands…”
Alexander Milas (Editor of Metal Hammer Magazine, 2016) on The Great Surveyor
London natives CYPHER16 have risen up the ranks in their native UK throughout the last few years, amassing a devoted following which has afforded them the opportunity to perform at numerous festivals around the world (including India and China), and to catch the eyes and ears of reputable music publications and tastemakers. Now, after the buzzing release of their latest album – the hooky, symphonic metal-tinged alt-rock offering The Great Surveyor (recorded by renowned producer Romesh Dodangoda [Motörhead, Bullet For My Valentine, Funeral For A Friend]) – CYPHER16 have set their sights on North America.
CYPHER16 will embark on their very first major North American tour with headliners Amaranthe on their upcoming “Maximalism” USA & Canada tour, beginning February 10 at Scout Bar in Houston, TX. The tour will also feature support from Failure/Anthem, Citizen Zero and Smash Into Pieces. The tour will trek through North America until March 11, when it comes to a close in Reading, PA. Tickets are available via http://amaranthe.se/
CYPHER16 frontman Jack Doolan states, “We’re excited to be hitting the road with our good friends in Amaranthe once more, this time around the USA and Canada! We’ll be bringing you guys a joint Swedish and British musical assault, and the party won’t stop at the stage! See you there!”

New Album Ironshore Out Now | Order via www.metalblade.com/oni

 

2016 was a breakout year for progressive metal band ONI, who proved their lasting prowess with the release of their debut album Ironshore, toured with heavy metal greats such as Max & Iggor Cavalera and Children Of Bodom, tore up the stage at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest with Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God – and last but not least – introduced the heavy metal world to the wonders of “Xylosynth”.
 
After capping the year with Top 10 “Album of the Year” nods from the likes of Metal Injection, Metal Insider and others, ONI is returning with a brand new music video for one of their most ferocious, groovy tracks, “The Only Cure”, featuring guest vocals from none other than Randy Blythe himself. The music video, directed and edited by Abraham Roofeh, doubles as a petrifying, serial killer-themed horror film – rapidly cutting to scenes of ONI and Blythe setting the soundtrack.
 
Watch “The Only Cure” now, exclusively via Billboard. While there, read exclusive commentary about the video from ONI frontman Jake Oni: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7655367/oni-video-premiere-the-only-cure-featuring-lamb-of-god-randy-blythe
 
Jake Oni tells Billboard, “[“The Only Cure”] is one of the stronger songs on the album. It’s a good representation of our current sound and where we will be going.”
 
Guest vocalist Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God adds, “What a super creepy video! Horror fans will love it – the production is Hollywood film-quality. It looks like something out of a SAW or Hostel movie. I had a lot of fun with the ONI guys recording this track, and it’s cool to see the music set to such dramatic scenery. Nightmares…”
 
Ironshore, which hit stores in November 2016 via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records, can be ordered now via www.metalblade.com/oni and/or streamed via Spotify. Ironshore was produced by Josh Wilbur, primarily recognized for his work with top metal artists Lamb Of God and Gojira.
 
With their influences rooted in progressive metal, ONI‘s sound can be compared to the genre’s heavy hitters – The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me – yet they remain truly unique. With Jake Oni handling vocal duties, Martin Andres and Brandon White on guitar, Chase Bryant on bass and Joe Greulich on drums, they are also perhaps the first metal band to feature a Xylosynth player, Johnny D, which adds an intriguing dynamic to the nine tracks found on Ironshore. Watch the superhuman Xylosynth playthrough for the track “Barn Burner”

JOHN 5 Reveals “Season Of The Witch”


– New JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES Album, Season Of The Witch, out March 3, 2017
 
– Pre-Orders Begin Early February via iTunes
 
– US Tour Kicks off March 3 in Fife, WA 
World-renowned guitarist JOHN 5 recently announced the release of his upcoming eighth full-length solo album, entitled Season Of The Witch. The fully-instrumental album, which features his band The Creatures (bassist Ian Ross and drummer Rodger Carter), is set to hit stores on March 3, 2017. The album features experimentation with various genres – including western swing, Spanish flamenco, heavy metal and more – thoroughly showcasing JOHN 5‘s diverse virtuosic abilities. Pre-orders will become available via iTunes in early February.
JOHN 5 took a different approach with the release of Season Of The Witch, choosing to share his new music with fans throughout 2016 by releasing several tracks individually in the form of various music videos. Tracks/videos released include the fast-paced “Black Grass Plague”, downtempo, introspective “Behind The Nut Love”, hard rocking “Now Fear This”, jazz fusion marathon “Here’s To The Crazy Ones” (featuring a bit of “monkeying around”), heavy metal Claymation shredfest “Making Monsters”, and last but not least, the whiskey-soaked “Hell Haw”. The videos have garnered nearly a million views, collectively.
“Since music is so visual nowadays, I thought these videos would be the best way to get my music out there, and it seems to have worked – now everybody knows the songs on the record,” states JOHN 5. “I put so much work into this record with the videos, the artwork, the songwriting and the playing – out of my catalog, this is by far my favorite solo record.”
Season Of The Witch track listing:
1) Book of Spells
2) Black Grass Plague
3) Guitars, Tits and Monsters
4) Now Fear This
5) Behind the Nut Love
6) Making Monsters
7) Dr. Evil’s Spook Show
8) Here’s To The Crazy Ones
