Dry Kill Logic Debuts New Single

Eat your hearts out, Tool.

You aren’t the only band to go 13 years without releasing new music.  Dry Kill Logic returned this week with its first new music in as many years.  The New York-based metal outfit debuted its new single ‘Vices’ on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play and Spotify.

‘Vices’ is the title track from the band’s forthcoming fourth full-length studio recording.  The album’s official release date has not been announced.

While Vices will be the band’s fourth album under the DKL moniker, it is not the band’s first recording.  It released two EPs — ‘Cause Moshing Is Good Fun and Elemental Evil in 1997 and 1999 respectively — under the moniker of Hinge. Copyright issues with the name eventually led the band to change its name to Dry Kill Logic.

The band’s debut album under the DKL name, The Darker Side of Nonsense was released in 2001 through Roadrunner Records.  It was followed up with the release of The Dead and Dreaming in 2004 through its own label, Psychodrama Records and with Of Vengeance in Violence in 2006.  That record was also released through Psychodrama Records.

The EPs Rot and The Megellan Complex were released in 2002 and 2006 respectively under the DKL name.

DKL front man Cliff Rigano said in a recent interview that he was excited about the release of the band’s new single.

“After 13 years, we couldn’t be more excited to be releasing music again and ‘Vices’ is the perfect reintroduction,” he said.

Vyces Premieres New Single, ‘Paralyzed’

Vyces debuted its new single this week.

The band debuted its new single ‘Paralyzed’ Tuesday.  The song was released through Imagen Records/Warner ADA.  The song comes more than a year after the band debuted the video for its last single ‘Thin Luck,’ which was released May 9, 2018.

‘Paralyzed’ is streaming online now via Apple Music and Spotify.  Musically, the song’s choruses boast a very aggro-rock vibe while the choruses are the exact opposite, tense, but still lighter than the feel of the song’s choruses.

Vyces front man Dave Naruszewicz talked about the song in a recent interview.

“I’m extremely excited to share ‘Paralyzed’ with everyone,” he said.  “It’s a song we’ve been playing live over the past two years and has definitely made its mark as a core song in our set. Producer Augustus Cryn’s vision for the song caught my attention the first time I heard the riffs.  Infectious and undeniable, this one is a head banger from start to finish.”

Reign Of Z Debuts ‘Reflections’ Video

Alt-rock metal band Reign of Z debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its single ‘Reflections’ on Tuesday via PureGrainAudio.com and YouTube.  The single is taken from the band’s debut EP Mirrors and Memoirs.  The record, produced by Steve Sopchak (Ice Nine Kills), is scheduled for April 19.

Vocalist Zosia West talked about the EP in a recent interview.

“This is the most exposed songwriting I’ve written up to this point,” West said.  “Each song was written at different ages in my life and reformatted for listeners.  Experiences from 8, 16, 24 and present.”

West added, “Our experiences have allowed us to create a world where we find solace and comfort, and allows us to be who we are and whoever listens and follows.”

The video for the new song presents vocalist Zosia West being restrained on a table by her band mates — Steven Lords (guitar), Zach Cunningham (guitar) and Stephen Berg (bass) — as she struggles to be released.  Meanwhile, her band mates work to hold her back so that an unidentified fluid can be pumped into her.  That footage is crossed with footage of the band performing its new single against a darkly lit backdrop.

Musically, the song’s arrangement lends itself to thoughts of Halestorm, Amy Lee and even Otep to a slightly lesser degree.  Lyrically, the song comes across as a commentary about an emotional battle that West at one time fought with herself.

‘Reflections’ can be purchased now via Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon.

Reign of Z is scheduled to perform live Apr. 27 in Millvale, PA in support of Mirrors and Memoirs.  More information on the show is available along with information on the band’s new video, EP and more at:

Authority Zero Debuts ‘Ah Hell’ Video; Announces New Live Dates

Courtesy: Concrete Jungle

Punk rock band Authority Zero debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The veteran Mesa, AZ-based band debuted the video for its new single ‘Ah Hell‘ on Wednesday. The video combines footage of the band performing its new single in a sound stage setting with shots of a female lead dealing with what appears to be some emotional stress, working her way through her situation through the use of art.

Front man Jason Devore explained the song’s concept in a recent interview, saying it is meant to encourage people to stand up for themselves.

“‘Ah Hell’ is a ‘well, why the f*** not’ in life scenario,” Devore said.  “Idealistically, it stems from when I was a kid.  A lot of the older teenagers and younger kids that looked up to them would all go and ride BMX in a small town I lived in.  The area we went to had a giant dirt bowl, killer terrain and one big wicked kicker (jump) at the bottom.  One day, the teens pressured this little kid by bullying him into flying down the hill to make the jump and fit in.  End result, the kid did a double back flip unintentionally and ended up landing on his face, shattering all his teeth and bone structure.  All that said, the idea the final result is to stand up for yourself, don’t give in to pressure or bullies, take chances, but also take things at your own pace and do what you feel is right for you.”

‘Ah Hell’ is taken from Authority  Zero’s latest full-length studio recording persona non grata, which was released Nov. 22 via Concrete Jungle.  the album is streaming now via Spotify and Apple Music.

It can be purchased on vinyl now here.

Authority Zero is currently scheduled to perform live this spring in Europe, with two confirmed dates in the UK and one in France.  The band’s schedule is noted below.

Upcoming shows:

APR 14 New Cross Inn- London, England, United Kingdom

APR 16 The Salty Dog- Northwich, England, United Kingdom

APR 24 Gibus Live- Paris, Ile-de-France, France (w/ Good Riddance x A Vulture Wake)

Sir Reg Debuts ‘The Underdog”s Lead Single

Courtesy: Head First Entertainment/Despotz Records

Swedish punk outfit Sir Reg will release its fifth full-length studio recording this fall, and in anticipation of its release, the band is giving audiences their first preview of the album.

The band debuted the song ‘FOOL (Fight Of Our Lives)‘ on Friday.  The song is the lead single from the band’s next album The Underdogs.  Front man Brendan Sheehy, who is in fact Irish (yes, this is a band from Sweden with an Irish front man), said the album’s lead single centers on the power of hope.

“‘FOOL (Fight of our Lives)‘…is about pulling yourself back from the bring the minute you feel all hope is lost,” Sheehy said.  “Nothing and nobody can stand in your way when you decide to go grab your hopes and dreams, and achieve everything you believe is rightfully yours.”

FOOL (Fight of our Lives)‘ can be downloaded via iTunes and streamed via Spotify.

In regards to The Underdogs, the band explained in a collective statement that it is a tribute of sorts to the everyday person, that proverbial underdog who works every day to survive while also making some kind of difference.

“Everyone loves an Underdog,” the band said in its statement.  “They represent the belief that anyone can achieve and accomplish whatever they believe in, despite overwhelming odds.  This album deals with the struggles of the ordinary men and women, to make their voice heard and their opinions count, whilst not losing their spirit and ability to enjoy the simpler things in life, like hanging out with friends at their favorite bar on a Saturday night.”
