SCOTT STAPP – Signs With Napalm Records

Scott Stapp of CREED/ART OF ANARCHY fame has signed a new deal with Napalm Records. Stapp recently stated that he is going on five years of sobriety following well publicized battles with substance abuse and mental illness. While future release plans were not revealed, you can expect to hear some new music from him this year with a teaser shared HERE.

Stapp was sued for $1.2 million in early 2018 by his Art Of Anarchy bandmates for breach of contract. In the suit, the band alleged that Stapp failed to fulfill his various professional and promotional obligations with the band. It is unclear as to how that lawsuit has played out.

Driven by unbridled passions and haunted by ghosts that defy definition, the great rockers keep getting better, stronger, more determined to get it right...

VALE OF PNATH – Debut New Song

Tech death extremists VALE OF PNATH will release a new EP called Accursed on May 17 through Willowtip Records. The album’s title track is now streaming above.

The band’s second EP following two acclaimed full-lengths (2011’s The Prodigal Empire and 2016’s II), Accursed is fueled with tech death adrenaline and shrouded in black metal’s iniquitous aura. Those complementary qualities enhance what is unequivocally another giant step forward in penetrating songwriting dynamics. Concision with depth describes the five proper compositions, while the cold, mechanistic opening soundscape “Shadow and Agony” and chilling interlude “Audient Void,” are equally vital in completing an EP that is best absorbed as a holistic musical experience, albeit one that is the stuff of nightmares...
