Mark Morton, the prolific guitarist of Lamb of God, has released the second single from his debut solo album, Anesthetic, out March 1, 2019. “Cross Off” featuring Chester Bennington and is now available everywhere here.
“Cross Off” was recorded in April 2017 and written by Mark Morton, Chester Bennington, Jake Oni and producer Josh Wilbur. Morton recorded all guitars with Paolo Gregoletto and Alex Bent (Trivium) handling bass and drums. The composition of the song began between Morton, Wilbur and Oni before the three approached Bennington about singing vocals. Bennington loved the song and came to the studio with additional ideas and lyrics that, together with his unique and incredible vocal style, shaped the song to be what it is today.
With the release of their debut EP ‘Morbid Black Trinity’ looming, Master’s Call have premiered a new music video for ‘From Once Beneath The Cursed’.
Recorded at Parlour Studios (Napalm Death, At The Gates, Sikth) ‘From Once Beneath The Cursed’ is the Wolverhampton Black Metal group’s first music performance video.
“The track is about a physical embodiment formed from the underlying evil and madness of the world, and we have a depiction of this running throughout the video in the form of a decrepit figure awakening and rising”, explains guitarist Dave Powell. “These scenes in a small cellar that had been recently damaged by flooding. It was cold, dark and damp. For the band performance shots we were filmed in an abandoned school in the Black Country area. There was no power, so we took a generator to power the necessary equipment in the room. The generator did cut out a number of times whilst filming, plunging us into darkness, but we managed to bring it back to life and push on through!”
UNEARTH just announced a co-headline European tour with DARKEST HOUR in March/April 2019! Support acts will be MISERY SIGNALS, MALEVOLENCE and LEFT BEHIND.
UNEARTH frontman Trevor Phipps comments, “It’s been over two years since we’ve set foot in Europe and we are more than ready to return for the Death to False Metalcore tour. Hitting the road alongside our brothers in Darkest Hour as well as the stacked package of Misery Signals, Malevolence and Left Behind is something we are very much looking forward to. See you soon Europe!”

NORTHWARD, is the hard rock project from well-renowned musicians Floor Jansen (Nightwish) and Jorn Viggo Lofstad (Pagan’s Mind), who will be releasing their debut self-titled album on October 19th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast.
The project sees a step away from both musicians normal style and approach and is a very diverse album. It was during the ‘All Star Jam’ at Progpower USA Festival in 2007, when current Nightwish singer Floor Jansen and Pagan’s Mind guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad first performed together on stage for some cover songs. Their mutual love for hard rock bought them together and they composed an album quickly after in 2008 but due to their other music commitments that album was put on hold until now, with the release being ten year’s later after it was first made. Floor seized the opportunity to get the project back on track in 2017 when Nightwish took a break and luckily it was time, so 2018 will finally see the release of their anticipated musical side project Northward.
