Need-To-Know: Wings Denied

This band’s wings may have been denied, but drummer Alec Kossof took them right back. How? Because he’s a professional acrobat. And no, we’re not making that up. But aside from that fun fact, Wings Denied is a need-to-know because their new EP Voyager is an excellent display of progressive metal. It’s got groove, it’s got melody, it’s got heaviness, and it dares to experiment. Want guitar solos? Right here. Want insane creativity? You got it. Voyager is a must have. Plus, they gave 10% of their physical pre-order money from this EP to benefit a seabird sanctuary. How fitting and how cute?

Between The Buried And Me Release New Song “Famine Wolves”

btbam

North Carolina natives Between The Buried And Me have released the second single from their upcoming album Coma Ecliptic. The song, entitled “Famine Wolves” is exemplary of BTBAM’s iconic and unique sound. It is nearly seven minutes of the band’s signature shredding, vicious vocals, and off-kilter beats that keep your mind and ears on their toes.

Tommy Rogers’s vocal ability is showcased in this track amongst moments of intense eeriness and theatrics, most notably around the 4 minute mark. The last minute of the song features the choice guitar stylings that fans of BTBAM have come to expect and treasure. With each new song from the band we anticipate having our faces melted off, and this progressive metal opera does not disappoint.

Coma Ecliptic will be released on July 7th through Metal Blade Records. The band will also be promoting their new album on tour with Animals As Leaders and The Contortionist. Check out the dates below to see when the Coma Ecliptic Tour is coming to your town and stream “Famine Wolves” by heading over to Metal Injection.
