Not Another Teen Blog Post....

Yeah, this is a music blog. I am sorry that I have really been slacking lately in the post and Morning Coffee department. To those of you that have still been supporting me, thank you very much.

Now on to the post. Time to interact with my followers. I want to hear the best 10 metal, hardcore, punk, etc. performances you have ever seen in the comments section below. Let's see what you got.

Trapped Under Ice Singer Calls Out Fan

Hardcore band Trapped Under Ice apparently fought a kid for jumping on the singer when he was stagediving. Even if you don't like the band, funny video. (Sorry for the short post, I have to go to work.)

New Periphery Song

Progressive metal/ djent/ shredcore band Periphery has released a new song. This track "Frak the Gods" is going to be put out on their forthcoming ep Icarus EP. I am not gonna lie to you, this track is beyond sick. It far surpasses anything else on their first full length put out by Sumerian. Great production, amazing vocals, and as always, Bulb never fails to deliver some crazy guitar work. Here is the link to the Metalsucks post with the song in it. Happy listening!

I Killed the Prom Queen Is Back!

One of the most essential metalcore bands in the past decade is Australia's own, I Killed The Prom Queen, has been slated for it's return. I am personally fucking (pardon my language) STOKED. This band has been a part of my music collection for some time now, and I had discovered them at the time just before they broke up. Of course I was a bit of a sceenie- weenie in this stage ugh... So I did not exactly appreciate them the way they deserved, but now I can't go a week without listening to some of their better songs.

They announced officially on their Facebook that they were to return. According to various internet sources, it has been found that Jona (guitar) will be doubling shows with previously posted band, Bring Me The Horizon, as will JJ Peters (Drums) with his hardcore band Deez Nuts. No original vocalist would come back so they decided to pick up the vocalist of Geelong's deathcore band, The Red Shore. Go ahead and take a look at this post in the Wiki article.

"On 9 March 2011, the band announced an Australian reunion tour with The Amity Affliction, Deez Nuts, and Of Mice & Men as part of the Destroy Music Tour in May 2011. It was confirmed that Butcher and Crafter will not return as vocalists.
On 10 March 2011, it was confirmed that Jamie Hope (ex-The Red Shore) will be taking over lead vocals for the tour. It was confirmed via the bands official facebook page this re-formation and line-up is permanent, and not just for one tour. Guitarist Jona Weinhofen has confirmed the same day that he is not planning to leave his other band Bring Me the Horizon and that he will remain in both bands."

New Bring Me The Horizon Video...

Not many people liked this band passed when they were deathcore. I mean let's face it, as our musical tastes evolved, BMTH fell way behind. I personally have always thought they were pretty catchy, minus the whole "we are big rockstars now, so we get to act like douchebags" thing. Well their new songs have legitimately gotten well... Good. It may be hard to believe, but I can already see why. Since his departure from Australia's I Killed The Prom Queen, I have always enjoyed the works of Mr. Jona Weinhofen. He is a great guitarist. He brought a lot to the table for Bleeding Through (wow there are a lot of name drops in this post), and now is bringing that creativity to BMTH. Upon first hearing their new single, I could not believe that the band who had previously written an album full of Bury Your Dead and UnderOATH (more name drops, yay!) rip- offs was so good. Then I remembered why. Good luck Jona, you need it. ANYWAY, back to the news. There isn't much to say. Good song, decent video. Here ya go viewers.

The Endless Steppe

Some of you may know just how it feels to have a genuinely small music scene where you live. My town is no exception. In my opinion, it is very rare for a band in this genre of music to create music that is catchy, and has some talent behind it. Well there is one band here doing just that. They may have dumbed their sound down a little bit to bring out that catchy element, but my good friends in The Endless Steppe have released a record to be reckoned with. While my opinion may be a bit biased since they are such good friends of mine, I personally think it is only a matter of time before they go places.

NOTE: While this is (yes), a deathcore, please do not let the term scare you away. Give them a chance. I mean it's free, what do you have to lose?
