Legendary hardrock band Bloodgood has released a video for ‘In The Trenches’ the song is from the documentary “Trenches of Rock: The Metal Mission of Bloodgood.” The long-anticipated documentary is finally available on DVD & Blue Ray. The video can be viewed below.

This full-length documentary chronicles the 30-year history of the ‘Christian Metal’ band Bloodgood, who was targeted not only by a mainstream music industry that found their blatant use of faith-based lyrics unfitting with heavy metal, but also by religious extremists who believed their music was the work of the devil – confronted by death threats, picketers and protests throughout their career.

This project, which began in June 2012, is directed by Paul Michael Bloodgood and Annie Marie Bloodgood of Bloodygood Pictures, and produced executive by Oscar and Grammy winning director, James Moll (Foo Fighters: Back and Forth).

Ravenword bring soaring vocals, metal guitars, and driving rhythms to bear on material inspired by Edgar Allen Poe in their debut album Transcendence, joining other critically acclaimed symphonic power metal bands on Rockshots Records.

Ravenword actually trace their beginnings back to 2007 when it was a project of keyboardist Davide Scuteri.  The idea was to create a symphonic power metal project inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” by combining the poetic style and themes of that age with the music of bands like Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, and Within Temptation.  Fast forward all the way to 2019 and the project is complete as Davide added Chiara Tricarico (vocals), Michele Olmi (drums), and Cesare Ferrari (guitar and bass) for the recording.

Azusa (featuring members of The Dillinger Escape PlanExtolSea + Air, and more) have just announced the details of their sophomore album.

The band’s new studio album, “Loop Of Yesterdays“, will be released on April 10th 2020 through Solid State Records in North America and Asia, and through Indie Recordings everywhere else.

For the upcoming album, the band found themselves returning to drummer and producer-engineer David Husvik’s Hawk Studios in Oslo, Norway to record “Loop Of Yesterdays,” which was masterminded by long-time collaborators David Husvik and guitarist Christer Espevoll, and recorded in a series of marathon sessions that started before their previous album even left the pressing plant. The band once again called upon Nick Terry [Serena ManeeshKvelertakTurbonegro] to achieve their ideal mix, a highly polished balance of punch and aggression, giving mastering engineer Jens Bogren [Opeth, At The GatesBetween The Buried And Me] a pitch he could knock out of the park. Intrigued by his ability to exist comfortably in both the jazz and metal world, the band reached out to world-class guitarist Alex Skolnick [Testament] to contribute a shredding guest solo on the track ‘Detach.’
