We Ride is a hardcore band from Vigo, Spain. The band was formed by singer Mimi Telmo and guitarist Borja Trigo.

In 2009 they self-released a demo that led to their first full-length album “Directions”. In 2012 they released their second full-length “On The Edge”. Over the years We Ride played with bands like H2O, Comeback Kid, Madball, Bane and many others in over 30 countries worldwide. They hit the studio again in 2016 with Alex Cappa at Metal Factory Studios outside Madrid and the album was mixed in early 2017 by Cameron Webb.

Empowering Life”, is WE RIDE’s Victory Records debut, and was released on April 14th, 2017.

At the beginning of the album the music slowly swells on and gets you excited for what is to come. And when it all breaks loose We Ride treats us on some old school hardcore With the first track ‘Voices’. And the energy rages forth with ‘Self Made’ for which they shot an official video. In contrast to a lot of other hardcore bands the choruses are sometimes catchy and the riff at two thirds of the song is just epic! And the riff at the beginning of the third track, ‘What You Are’, has a Slayer feel to it but the song is quickly back at the roots of classic hardcore/punk. This song also features Deez Nuts front-man JJ Peters. Continue reading »

The official video for ‘Madness’, the title track of the eighth studio album from Massachusetts metallers All That Remains, can be seen below. The disc will be released on April 28 via Razor & Tie in the U.S. and Eleven Seven Music in Europe.

“Madness” was recorded at West Valley Studios in Woodland Hills, California with producer Howard Benson, who has previously worked with such acts as Motörhead, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf, P.O.D. and Halestorm.

All That Remains singer Phil Labonte told Revolver magazine about the band’s approach on the new disc: “We wanted to mix it up a little bit and write from a vocal perspective this time. So I went to L.A. and came up with vocal ideas and melodies and then sent those chord progressions back to Oli and he wrote riffs in response to that. [Doing it this way] turned the record into a vocal album as opposed to a guitar album. And that affected some things. Like, there might be less intricacy in the riffs because they were written in response to my voice.” Continue reading »
