Terror’s “Live By The Code” Expected In Early 2013

Terror have a timeframe in mind for the release of their new album “Live By The Code“. While originally pegged for a release later this year, the outing is now planned to surface in January of next year. Band guitarist Martin Stewart recently confirmed the news via this tweet.

Gwar frontmutant Oderus Urungus has followed up his recent statements which suggested the band would be unveiling a new member during their August 18th “Gwar-B-Q” event at Hadad’s Lake in Richmond, VA.

Once again speaking through his Twitter, he offered the following on that today, August 14th:

“You metal writers better check yourself. I never said our new Scumdog would debut at the GWAR-B-Q. All will be revealed after its over. GWAR will issue a comprehensive update on the progress of the new album after the GWAR-B-Q…until then you get hints and riddles. Which you shall continue to mis-interpret! But it is nice that people seem so excited…though that won’t save you!”

Trivium singer/guitarist Matt Heafy revealed during last night’s solo acoustic show in New York City, NY that he has a new side project in the works. According to, who were in attendance at the show, Heafy plans to release music from the strictly studio project next year.

90′s black metal apparently served as the original inspiration for the project, though it has since branched out into other forms of metal. Trivium drummer Nick Augusto is expected to handle the percussion for the undertaking.

Becoming The Archetype Offer Lengthier Preview Of “The Time Bender”

Becoming The Archetype have revealed a lengthier preview of their new song “The Time Bender” below; whilst also offering fans the chance to unlock a stream of the full track and its accompanying music video via this location. The song will appear on the bands forthcoming album “I Am“, which guitarist Seth Hecox had the following to say about:

I AM is 100% head banging riffs. Gone are the sitars and horns of Celestial Completion. Instead, we’ve crafted an album full of the heaviest and most technical songs we’ve ever written.”

Speaking on the aforementioned song itself, he offered:

“‘The Time Bender is a microcosm of the new album because it displays elements of what BTA has done in the past as well as elements of what the BTA sound is becoming. In that sense, it’s a perfect bridge between people’s past enjoyment of BTA’s catalog and people’s excitement over the new material.

We’ve been playing the song live this whole summer so lots of ears have already heard a simplified version of this song and feedback has been spectacular. It’s encouraging to know that so many people stand behind what we do and willingly follow us in each step of our musical evolution.”

I Am” in on the slate for a September 18th release date through Solid State Records.
