German Blackened Crust Heavyweights ANCST have announced their signing to Lifeforce Records, a new band addition and plans for a new studio album in 2018.
“We are proud to announce that we will be joining forces with Lifeforce Records for our upcoming album in 2018. Growing up with German metallic hardcore and proto-metalcore, Lifeforce has a special place in our hearts and we are honored to be part of the label family alongside bands such as King Apathy, dutch grinders Teethgrinder or bigger names such as Heaven Shall Burn, Between The Buried And Me.
Also, we are happy to reveal the addition of a new band member, Mihai, who will join the band as the first drummer. Mihai delivers some punishing blast beats and most importantly he is a human. For the last 3 years we have been touring with our beloved Roland (404), a sampler that hosted our drum tracks. It was a great ride and it left many of you with great confusion but it always felt strange performing on stage. It’s great to finally be able to hear a human drummer blast his way through these tracks and to play alongside him. Catch the new line up on tour in september. We are all looking forward to this.”
REVIEW: DED- MIS-AN-THROPE by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy
Ded are a relentless modern metal band from Phoenix Arizona who have been causing quite the commotion since their first EP and now they are really stirring things up with their high impact debut album ‘Mis-An-Thrope’. Through their hard work and driven attitude, they gained the attention of well-known producer John Feldmann (Disturbed, Blink-182, Beartooth) and the momentum continues to grow. They just finished a run with Korn and Stone Sour, and have various other tour dates and festival appearances lined up for the rest of the year.
Opening song ‘Architect’ surges and explodes from the off declaring “get up and fucking go” which is very appropriate for the carnage that ensues and is the perfect song to lose your shit too. This is frantic, seriously catchy and a well-structured heavy hitter that is non-stop and prepares you for what is to come for the rest of the album…
Phoenix hardcore outfit American Standards, has release their second music video single “Carpe Diem, Tomorrow“, which comes off their upcoming record “Anti-Melody“. In this claustrophobically dark video filmed by Jacob Reynolds (Dead Rabbits, Escape The Fate, The New Low), silhouettes of the band thrash amidst seizure-like inducing lights, capturing the passion and intensity of the song.
Vocalist Brandon Kellum commented on the video saying, “We all know the person that’s been at their job for 10 years and complains every day about it, someone who’s planed on going back to school or wants to travel but always makes excuses on why they don’t. “Carpe Diem, Tomorrow” is about getting out of your comfort zone. Being open to new experiences and ways of thinking. Moving is living. You’re not getting any younger and there will never be a “right time” so do something that scares the hell out of you every day of your life.”
Along with the new music video, American Standards has announced “The Anti-Melody Tour” in support of the new album. The 10 day tour begins May 19th in Albuquerque, NM and will end in Reno, NV on May 28th. The band is known for its powerful live performance so make sure to check the dates below for a city near you.

Chaotic hardcore quartet, American Standards have announced their upcoming full length titled, Anti-Melody which is set to release April 28th on all digital music outlets. Off the forthcoming record comes the first single “Writers Block Party“, giving a good glimpse into the group’s new record. The new single premiered exclusively on Lambgoat.
“What started as social commentary on the growing divide in our society became very personal when our founding guitarist (Cody Conrad) passed of suicide and then soon after, my father of cancer. We went back in to re-write much of the album and in a lot of ways used it as therapy to deal with the experiences. Although very personal, at its core Anti-Melody is centered around the universal theme of separation on many levels.” -Vocalist, Brandon Kellum
