Upholding artistic pillars of tightly wound technical proficiency, airtight grooves, and pensive lyricism, August Burns Red fulfill a quiet, yet staunch 17-year commitment to a diehard audience worldwide. The two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated Pennsylvania quintet—JB Brubaker [lead guitar], Brent Rambler [rhythm guitar], Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs [lead vocals], and Dustin Davidson [bass]—have preserved this level of integrity since first emerging in 2003. Following the seminal Messengers [2007] and Constellations [2009], the band infiltrated the mainstream via 2015’s Found In Far Away Places. Not only did the latter stand out as their second straight #9 bow on the Billboard Top 200, but it also garnered the group’s first GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” for “Identity.” The momentum increased with the arrival of Phantom Anthem in 2017. Marking the group’s fourth Top 20 debut on the Billboard Top 200, it paved the way for their second “Best Metal Performance” GRAMMY® nod for “Invisible Enemy.” Between sold-out shows worldwide, they continued a 15-year tradition of holiday shows by launching the Christmas Burns Red Festival. Now, their 2020 eighth full-length, Guardians [Fearless Records], sees them not only preserve but perfect this definitive sound as evidenced by the likes of “Defender” and “Bones.”

Brotherhood lasts forever.
 No matter what happens, those bonds endure in memories and moments. We Came As Romans hold a similar link between them. After nearly 15 years together, countless sold out shows, critical acclaim, and over 250 million streams, the Michigan quintet—Joshua Moore [guitar], Dave Stephens [vocals], Lou Cotton [guitar], Andy Glass [bass], and David Puckett [drums]—weather their darkest time and emerge stronger in the name of a fallen brother and member: Kyle Pavone.

The group soldier ahead with a sixth full-length opus befitting of his memory.

After Kyle’s death in 2018, they made a careful decision to push forward, returning to the road with Bullet For My Valentine before gathering themselves in the studio with longtime collaborator Nick Sampson [Asking Alexandria, Born Of Osiris] and seeking perspective from Drew Fulk [Motionless In White, Lil Peep].

We Came As Romans introduce this next chapter with a pair of singles, “Carry The Weight” and “From The First Note.” Evocative clean guitar echoes at the beginning of “Carry The Weight” before giving way to a hammering groove and cathartic screams that culminate on a hypnotic chant—one of the band’s most irresistible.

Meanwhile, “From The First Note” hinges on thick guitars as it delivers a fast and furious elegy. Steamrolling forward on a punk gallop, the chorus rings out, “I can’t replace you.”

In the end, the brotherhood between We Came As Romans lives on.

There’s a palpable authenticity to Hollow Front, the Michigan locals who found themselves – some as complete strangers to each other – in a room playing music together only a few years back. After snapping attention with their 2020 album Loose Threads, Hollow Front are continuing to carry that frenzied momentum into an inspired new era supporting the likes of We Came As Romans, Fit For A King and more. Summoning the heaviness of names such as Wage War and The Ghost Inside together with dynamic, Polaris-esque melodics, Hollow Front untangle personal losses, relationship breakdowns and struggling mentally amid life’s waves.

Since their burst onto Australia’s metal scene eight years ago, Melbourne’s Void Of Vision have used their platform as a projection of anger, apathy, darkness and despair. Whether faithful fan or peripheral onlooker, the band’s previous recorded, visual and live performance elements made their bleak sentiments clear for anyone to see. Released in late 2021, the band's latest EP CHRONICLES I: LUST, smashed this perception.

The four-track effort, first introduced by singles ‘THE LONELY PEOPLE’ and ‘VAMPYR’ found frontman Jack Bergin expressing himself with an openness, clarity and purpose never before seen. While historically Void Of Vision has been an outlet for his internal angst and self-loathing, LUST, unravelled the beginning of a personal expedition to become a better human, embrace a new outlook on life, and at the same time lift his focus towards the issues and injustices in the world around him.

Now on close to 1 Million streams, CHRONICLES I: LUST sparked a new era in the VOV camp. With 'DOMINATRIX' at hand and the band's creative juice flowing in all directions, Void Of Vision are set to truly cement their mark on the heavy stage in 2022.
