As Australian metal juggernauts Parkway Drive gear up for a world tour to commemorate their 20th anniversary as a band, Epitaph Records announces the release of the band’s debut EP from 2004, for the first time on vinyl. This expanded version of Don’t Close Your Eyes includes the original 8 tracks from the band’s first EP , with the addition of bonus tracks included from both their split album with I Killed the Prom Queen and from the compilation albums What We’ve Built and True Till Death, Volume I.

Hailing from the beachfront town of Byron Bay, Australia, Parkway Drive blasted out of their serene surroundings touting a volatile blend of intricate metal riffing, punishing breakdowns, and hardcore’s emotional tension. The band caught fire regionally with the chart-topping Horizons (2007) and Deep Blue (2010), then broke into the international market in 2012 with the arrival of Atlas. 2015’s Ire saw the group introduce clean singing into their oeuvre, and they continued to move toward a more melodic, though no less aggressive metal style on 2018’s Reverence and 2022’s Darker Still.

Parkway Drive continue to be a force of nature, 20 years in and still one of the top headliners in the Hard Music scene. Don’t Close Your Eyes revisits the band’s beginnings and their completest fans will be excited to finally have this album available on Vinyl.

At the dawn of the new millennium, Rolling Stone declared, "Soulfly seem built to last." More than two decades, countless worldwide tours, and a dozen albums later, that prophecy rings true. Underground icon, extreme metal trailblazer, third world warrior, and leader of a diverse and dedicated tribe, Max Cavalera not only survives but thrives, blasting out riff after killer riff. The same voice, body, and spirit which launched Soulfly in 1997 summons impossibly heavy noise to this day, throwing down ten slabs of monstrous music on Soulfly's twelfth album, 2022's Totem.

Moonspell is approaching their 30th anniversary as a band more ambitiously and stronger than ever. Hermitage - the gothic metal pioneers'13th studio album - was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Primordial, Ghost, SĂłlstafir, etc.) at the Orgone Studios in the UK. Building upon the album's dark, revolutionary and sensitive facets, it's an entertaining yet epic journey through the darkest days of human existence. Beautifully crafted tracks such as "The Greater Good" show us the modernity of the wolves in 2021, while "Common Prayers" embraces the Moonspell tradition of writing a dark, gothic metal song like no other band can. "All Or Nothing" brings back the ethereal and melodic sounds of Moonspell, served by a beautiful musical landscape, making it most likely one of the deepest and most sincerely heart-breaking tunes the Portuguese dark metal titans have ever written. But of course, they don't stray away from their metal roots, especially influenced by underground metal bands like Bathory on tracks like the bombastic and epic metal anthem "The Hermit Saints"! Hermitage is a revolutionary, wonderfully intuitive and epic journey by one of the most distinctive dark metal bands of all time, and a testament to what they've always loved the most: Honest, emotional metal that binds us even in the darkest times. First pressing 2LP contains an exclusive bonus track, Candlemass cover "Darkness in Paradise."

Crematory

Unbroken

Vinyl: $25.98 Buy

Double vinyl LP pressing. Welcome to the Panopticon of darkness! With Unbroken, the German pioneers of European Gothic Metal, Crematory, dare to perform a tightrope act in the somber void. 15 energetic tracks within brutal riffs, deep growls and tight drum grooves prove the band's diversity - even after almost 30 years in business. The concise influences of Neue Deutsche Härte turn Unbroken into a bravura-piece in an industrial guise. The opening track of the album takes the listener into a darkly-nuanced soundscape, appeals to the strength and self-determination of the band and their fans, and allures with a certain kind of hymn character. The most contemplative Crematory album to date closes with the final tracks "As Darkness Calls", a powerful first class offer, and the emotional ballad "Like The Tides". The latter presents the fragile side of the band and symbolizes an ode of transience, love and pain. Crematory remains Unbroken!

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release, the sixth full-length from the genre-bending progressive/post-metal masters. Intronaut-a term that means 'inner traveler' - has spent the last decade plus writing, recording, and releasing genre-defying, category-destroying long-players. If Intronaut came out of the last decade with anything it's that they're known purveyors of the progressive. They've made a name for themselves through musical, lyrical, and artistic adventures, journeying into a multitude of styles, parlaying the best of their influences and their spirit animals into a force that's immediately recognizable as Intronaut. But the most remarkable thing about Intronaut is that they continue to challenge. Not just themselves, but the boundaries of what it means to be heavy and what it means to be progressive. That Intronaut confront the mundane and the accepted so easily is equal parts talent and vision.

Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. It's evident within the initial seconds of Bpmd's American Made, as the legendary Bobby Blitz (Overkill) chants the introductory lyrics to Ted Nugent's "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" in his signature skyscraper-high howl, that he and his equally iconic bandmates - drummer Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo), bassist Mark Menghi (Metal Allegiance) and guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head) - are here to have a damn good time. Featuring 10 unforgettable rock classics reimagined as heavy bangers, American Made is a party on wax. Tracks such as the raucous "Toys in the Attic" (Aerosmith) and rager-ready "Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers" (ZZ Top) prove that Bpmd not only manages to capture the essence of each original track on the album, but skillfully transforms each classic into an unforgettable metallic anthem for a new age. The seasoned quartet flex their musical muscles on renowned classics such as "Saturday Night Special" (Lynyrd Skynyrd), "We're an American Band" (Grand Funk) and "Walk Away" (James Gang), and introduce a whole new heavy generation to deeper cuts like blues standard "Evil" and "Never In My Life" (Mountain). Channeling nostalgia while maintaining a fresh attitude, American Made is a summer soundtrack for all ages!

Over the past 20 years, Grammy-nominated band TRIVIUM — Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums]— have quietly claimed their place at the forefront of heavy music in the 21st century. The Florida-based band is pleased to announce that its ninth full length What The Dead Men Say will be released through Roadrunner Records on April 24.

"What The Dead Men Say is everything that is Trivium," explains Heafy. "On this album, one can hear the proper ingredients of past, present, and future Trivium. The Trivium sound is having everything the band does — on one album." 
"With the new album, we took what worked on the The Sin And The Sentence and dialed it all up to 11," says bassist Gregoletto.  
Beaulieu echoes that sentiment, saying, “We wanted to build on the foundation that we established with the last album. The record has all the elements that are Trivium — along with all of us wanting to keep pushing ourselves creatively. This led to a highly-inspired and fast-paced writing and recording process that really captures the energy of the band."

Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. Emerging from dusky woods, the untamed and forlorn nature of Finnish quartet Wolfheart leads them to one of the most picturesque regions of their home country, Karelia. Just as wildlife itself maintains harmony through a violent clash of the beautiful and unpredictable, Wolves of Karelia explores the previously coined genre of winter metal - smoothly connecting a traditional approach towards extreme genres ('Reaper') with atmospheric or acoustic details ('the Hammer', 'Horizon on Fire'), crowned by the instrumental interlude, 'Eye of the Storm'. With the noted complexity of their fifth album, Wolfheart master the art of sonic storytelling through eight multi-faceted stylistic eposes with a virtuosity of riffs, guitar solos, and abrupt tempo-changes. Above all, however, Wolves of Karelia attack with complex arrangements and melodically-grasped melancholy, creating a release as bewitching and intense as it is atmospherically resonant.
