A three-minute video clip of vocalist Frankie Palmeri of metalcore band Emmure talking about the band’s new album, “Look At Yourself”, can be seen below. The album will be released on March 3. The follow-up to the 2014’s “Eternal Enemies” marks Emmure‘s first release with SharpTone Records.

“Look At Yourself” represents a coming of age for Emmure, a new chapter in an aggressive autobiography that stretches back to the band’s very first album, released when vocalist Frankie Palmeri was barely out of his teens. It’s infused with a brutal self-examination and observation, balancing hate, bile and perseverance, with the tempered experience of a life spent in pursuit of self-reliance and respect, from within and without. It’s expressed in a crushing cacophony of riffs that never fail to super-serve the forward-motion groove of Emmure. Continue reading »

Stryper Aug 2014Legendary hard rockers Stryper will continue making albums and touring despite the band’s recent announcement that they will “take a hiatus” in early 2017.

Asked by Nick of the WSOU radio station if Stryper was still planning to go on a break following the completion of the recent tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of their multi-platinum album “To Hell With The Devil”, frontman Michael Sweet said (hear audio below): “Well, some choices were made that affected the band and made us have to step back — kind of forced us to step back — and re-evaluate who we are and how we’re gonna continue. Without going into all the gory details… That being said, we have no plans of stopping. I mean, we had considered it and thought, well, maybe we should, but then we realized, well, that’s just fair to us, that’s not fair to the fans. So we’re gonna continue on for sure, we just don’t know how and when exactly.”

Sweet also talked about whether it’s likely that Stryper will carry on without bassist Tim Gaines, whose “personal matters” were previously revealed to be the reason for the band’s hiatus plans.

“Well, I mean, that remains to be seen, but it’s very possible, and I’d probably go as far as to say even probable,” Michael said. ‘But we don’t really know quite yet. It’s something that very well could happen, absolutely.” Continue reading »
