UNEARTH: Liquid Metal to Premiere “Shadows in the Light” Today At 4:00 PM EST

Today, Liquid Metal (SiriusXM 40) will host the exclusive premiere of UNEARTH’s “Shadows in the Light,” the third track off the band’s upcoming and eagerly-anticipated Darkness in the Light full-length!

Said vocalist Trevor Phipps: “‘Shadows in the Light’ is a tune that showcases everything UNEARTH has ever brought to the table from the aggressive to melodic sides both musically and vocally. This is probably the most ‘dynamic’ song on the album, but also one of the hardest hitters…and catchiest. We set out to make this album heavy as hell, while also keeping the listener interested with some memorable moments. We hope this tune becomes a staple in our live set this summer and beyond. Lyrically the song is about never standing down even when your enemies or any sort of personal or worldly defeat seems to be bearing down on you.”

To check out “Shadows in the Light,” tune in to Liquid Metal TODAY at 4:00 PM (EST)!

Darkness in the Light is UNEARTH’s fifth full-length in a discography that’s placed the band among the most prolific, evolving and plainly ravaging modern metal acts to come out of the U.S. Slated for North American release via Metal Blade Records July 5, the 11-track long player was recorded at Zing Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with producer (and Killswitch Engage guitarist) Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium). Sitting in on drums during the recording was Justin Foley of Killswitch Engage/Blood Has Been Shed.

Unearth New Album “Darkness in the Light”

New Song Stream Available

Pit-churning, melodic metal pioneers, UNEARTH, are currently readying to unveil Darkness in the Light, their fifth full-length in a discography that’s placed the band among the most prolific and plainly ravaging modern metal acts to come out of the U.S.. Set for North American release on July 5 via Metal Blade Records, the 11-track long player — their most conceptually personal offering to date — was recorded at Zing Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with producer (and Killswitch Engage guitarist) Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium, et al). Sitting in on drums during the recording was Justin Foley of Killswitch Engage/Blood Has Been Shed.

Commented UNEARTH vocalist Trevor Phipps of the band’s latest output: “Darkness In The Light is without a doubt some of the heaviest, most dynamic and memorable tunes we’ve ever written. The disc is littered with the shred ‘n’ stomp-filled songs our fans would expect from us, as well as some added vocal hooks, guitar melodies, guitar solos and some different paths taken in style and structure. We knew we had to continue to separate ourselves from the pack and to cement our place in the heavy metal world as one of the leaders and not as one of the many followers that seem to hop on the trend wagon and give up so easily when the going gets hard. We are here to stay and collectively we couldn’t be any more fired up to play these songs around the world for our fans new and old.”

Darkness in the Light Track Listing:
01. Watch It Burn
02. Ruination of the Lost
03. Shadows in the Light
04. Eyes of Black
05. Last Wish
06. Arise the War Cry
07. Equinox
08. Coming of the Dark
09. The Fallen
10. Overcome
11. Disillusion

The first single, the instantly pummeling “Eyes of Black,” is currently streaming on the band’s official album landing page, which includes updated tour info, pre-order options and more. Said Phipps of the track: “We chose ‘Eyes of Black’ to be the first song heard out of the gate as we feel it represents the ‘UNEARTH sound’ and style perfectly and it’s simply a hard-hitting, catchy-as-hell song. The lyrics are also in line with many of the albums darker lyrical themes. I’m not speaking for all of the band, but this is my personal favorite on the album and I can’t wait to get out there and play it live!” To check it out the tune, point your browser to This Location

Premiere of first single “Moonlight Equilibrium” & pre-order packages now live

Detroit deathsters The Black Dahlia Murder are pleased to unleash details of the group’s 5th full-length album, Ritual (out June 21st 2011), a collection of 12 tracks that see the band staying true to their sound and style while progressing in both writing and musicianship. Guitarist Ryan Knight has delivered truly searing leads that will, without a doubt, daze and lay waste the ears of both loyal Black Dahlia diehards and burgeoning fans alike. Music for Ritual was recorded in early 2011 in Detroit, MI with Mark Lewis (Deicide, Unearth) and the band producing. Vocals and mixing took place at the Orlando-based studio, Audio Hammer, with Jason Suecof (The Black Dahlia Murder, Beneath the Massacre, Job for a Cowboy, All That Remains). The first single off Ritual, Moonlight Equilibrium, is now live at the following location along with several pre-order options:
http://www.metalblade.com/BDM/

Guitarist and founding member Brian Eschbach comments on the first single, Moonlight Equilibrium: “We’ve been working on this album for a good while and we are very excited to finally share a preview with our fans! Moonlight Equilibrium is full of maximum overdrive melody and crushing beats that’ll hopefully leave you maniacs thirsting for more. We’ll be jamming this and other tasty treats for the next several months on the road. See you soon!”

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments on the extraordinary artwork: “The visual aspects of Ritual have been brilliantly brought to life by the amazingly talented Valnoir Mortsonge (Watain/Morbid Angel/Ulver) for Metastazis in Paris, France. Valnoir was the perfect man for the job; he exceeded our expectations on all fronts and delivered a beautiful package that enriches the macabre ceremonial vibe of our musical creations. The goal was to make the artwork look like a Necronomicon or an evil spell book. The imagery on the front depicts the dualistic nature of the satanic ritual… the two halves that make it possible. On the bottom, inverted, are the senders of the ritual here on earth, in prayer. On top is Satan and his council, receiving the communicative ritual.”

In terms of the direction of Ritual, vocalist Trevor Strnad notes this: “This is the first time we have fully realized a concept for an album. We wanted to choose something that would exemplify the very essence of the band… something that would be ‘more TBDM’ than anything we have released to this point. All of the lyrics to Ritual are bound by a common thread of black magic and the occult, the worship of darkness, and the preservation of inner strength and will.”

“When we play a show, it’s like a ritual… a group catharsis. We are unified with our fans through the platform of live performance. There is a real magic there. Like the album cover represents, there are two halves required; us and you. Yes, we are an evil band. Yes we sing about Satan. But really, how I see it, our evil is for your own good! The character Satan in our music represents the freedom to think for yourself… the strength to see through the facades of the norm that is presented to us at birth, and the courage to live your own way, free of the burden of guilt and shame. That’s how it’s always been for us and this record is no different.”

Strnad continues in saying: “I think Ritual is us fully realizing our responsibility to our fans to be the best (and most horrific) The Black Dahlia Murder we can while we’re here. In a way, you could say we have come to terms, more now so than ever, with how religious the fans are about this band… hence the album’s name. This is absolutely our best record and the new benchmark that we are soon to be measured by… I have no problem saying that. There has been no prouder moment for me in this band than the Ritual we offer before you. We worked harder on this and for longer than we ever have on any release until this point. Our blood is in the ink of this album, our souls in every note. That being said, if you were to steal this record, it would literally break my fat fucking heart. I know that times are tough, hell, it’s legitimately getting harder and harder to physically get these albums into your hands. I fully realize that. Every metal band (and fan) has fallen victim to these hard times. We are here to help get the music to you, no matter where you are or how scarce extreme metal may be there. It’s time to stand up and circumvent the obstacles that threaten to befall metal… just because these assholes have made it harder to find doesn’t mean we should just pull the plug, puss out and stop supporting it. Just because we can’t walk down the street to Super Megastore anymore and buy a Cannibal Corpse CD we’ve turned to stealing it all from the internet. Weak! One of the awesome powers of the internet is that it can allow these kick ass preorder packages to be available to the fans. That’s why we went to such extreme lengths to bring such a lush packaging to the masses… one last attempt at trying to lure you to go against the grain and actually invest your hard-earned money in the CD. If you really want to have an impact on the fate of this band, that is the truest and clearest way that I can tell you how to do so. We need your support. It’s not for our pocketbooks, it’s so we can exist in this cut-throat music business. I’m not encouraging you to just buy this album, either. This is bigger than that. I am encouraging you to support all metal bands that you like and buy their albums… we need you now more than ever.”

Ritual will be hitting streets in North American on June 21 with the band headlining one of the summer’s heaviest tours, The Summer Slaughter Tour, with label-mates Whitechapel and Six Feet Under in addition to Darkest Hour, Dying Fetus, and more.
