NITA STRAUSS is a So.Cal local from Los Angeles & is most recognized as Alice Cooper’s touring guitarist of the past 4 years, but made her solo debut in 2018.

On this track, Nita teamed up with vocalist of Disturbed, David Draiman, & will be featured on Nita Strauss’ new record due Spring of 2022.

In a statement, Draiman said of the track:

“We live in an age of over-stimulation. We’re barraged on a daily basis by sound bites of every kind. Driven into a media driven frenzy, we’ve become hopeless outrage addicts, dead to the true travesties and injustices of the world that are right in front of our eyes. Nothing shocks us anymore. After all, how can you be shocked, when you can no longer trust?”

Nita will be kicking off her Winter Wasteland tour in November & will be performing at The Whiskey A-Go-Go in Hollywood on Thursday, November 18th.

ETERNITY’S END hails from Bad Neustadt an der Saale, Bavaria – Germany and formed together in 2014.

This track will be featured on their forthcoming album: “Embers of War“, which will be available on November 26th.

Lyrically and visually the band aims to provide a moment of escapism; to reflect the truth in fiction and represent the magic of theatre and literature in a heavy metal context. These eight songs will lead listeners into a world full of magical wonder, far from their daily realities. The songs on Embers Of War tell fantasy, horror and science fiction tales, inspired by writers such as Michael Moorcock, Robert E. Howard, and Frank Belknap, as well as more modern authors such as Dan Simmons.

Lyrics describe epic battles from real life historical occurrences, to sword and sorcery style fantasy settings . Elsewhere songs delve into science fiction scenarios in the far distant future, whilst others deal with Lovecraftian themes of alternate dimensions and cosmic horror. The mixture of sword and sorcery aesthetics with 80’s sci-fi is also reflected in the hand painted cover artwork by Dimitar Nikolov.

IMMINENCE hail from Trelleborg, Sweden & formed together in 2010.

This track will be featured on their upcoming album: “Heaven in Hiding“, which will be released on November 26th.

On this track, the band takes the listener on a psychedelic and supernatural cinematic experience that flirts with the occult and explores the darkest corners of the mind.

Director Pavel Trebukhin and IMMINENCE have invested more time and effort than ever on the video production, ensuring the viewer to experience a completely new level of artistic story
telling and raises the bar even higher for what can be expected from a quickly uprising metalcore act today. The new single is a hard hitting fireball, mixing influences that haven’t been
heard since the bands breakthrough single ‘The Sickness‘ (2015) with all the unique features the band has established as their very own, among others the unmistakable violin performance by singer Eddie Berg.

BRING ME THE HORIZON are from Sheffield, England & formed together in 2004.

In an interview with NME Magazine, vocalist Olie Sykes explained how the lyrics for ‘DiE4u’ revisited his battles with addiction. Olie says:

“I’m tackling the song as if this unhealthy obsession I have is a relationship – almost like a mistress. I’ve learned over the past year while I’ve been recovering that when you’re in it, addiction is like you’re having an affair. You’re doing this thing behind everyone’s back, it’s a secret and it feels like you’re cheating and betraying people. I never saw it in that way. I just thought I was harming myself and not other people. I didn’t realize how much it can fuck up people’s trust.”

He continued: “This song is triumphant for me in a way because it’s me finally accepting that I’m not someone who can drink alcohol, smoke weed or do any of these things because I just have a problem with it and it always goes down the same road. That’s not something that I’ve been able to admit to myself. This song is a defiant stamp of me saying, ‘No, I’m making a choice now. I can’t keep doing this for the rest of my life because it’s only going to end up one way’.”

BMTH will also be performing at this year’s KNOTFEST happening on November 5th at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.

BUDDERSIDE was formed by vocalist PATRICK STONE following his departure from Adler’s Appetite under the guidance of his mentor and close friend, the late Motörhead front man Lemmy Kilmister.

He later enlisted a band of skilled musicians including guitarists Logan Nikolic and Sam “Bam” Koltun (Faster Pussycat, Dorothy), bassist Gabe Maska (currently appearing as Kurt Cobain in the Las Vegas 27 Show) and drummer Jeff Dewbray.

Their recent sophomore album SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE was released on March 26 via Motörhead Music/Silver Lining Music. It was recorded with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Godsmack, Papa Roach) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage), with guest collaborations from vocalist Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies) and guitarist Phil Campbell (Motörhead).

The track, which was produced by Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, Hollywood Undead, Butcher Babies), marks the second new track from their upcoming yet-to-be-titled third album due in 2022.

Vocalist Patrick Stone says of the track:

“‘Ghostlighting’- Facing who we really are can be terrifying. It’s very important to see the person in the mirror for who they really are. You can run, but you can’t hide from yourself.”
