The 1990’s saw a lot of good bands come and go, often with some great material seemingly lost.  No Life Til Metal has digitally remastered Image of Deception from the thrash band Consecrator and on it is not only the Image of Deception  release from 1992 but also some earlier demo tracks and a previously unreleased track from 2005.

Hailing from Texas, Consecrator formed in 1989 and by 1990 had recorded their first, self-titled demo, which incidentally took one day.  The demo was well received but the band underwent some lineup changes and took until 1991 to record “Free from Death” and send it to REX Records who ultimately released it on the Demolition compilation cd.  While the band continued to play live, they never could secure a record deal and after recording Image of Deception and enduring more lineup changes, the band went their separate ways in 1993.  Fast forward to 2004 and Bombworks Records remastered and released Consecrator’s old demos and Image of Deception in one limited run of 300 copies on cd.  Now 13 years later, No Life Til Metal and Roxx Records are releasing a digitally remastered version of this classic and as a bonus have included a previously unreleased track from 2005.

Combining soulful vocals and soaring grooves in one infectious burst, Australia’s Awaken I Am has eradicated genres with ‘Wolves,’ their newest song, available today. The track comes from their likewise enchanting new album, “Blind Love,” available everywhere September 29th, 2017.

“When people are only there for you when it benefits them, I consider them wolves,” admits vocalist Adam Douglas. “This song is a look at those self-absorbed people, and making yourself re-evaluate what truly matters. I also want to push people to achieve the things that make them happy with the true friends who are always there for you. If they can’t be there for you in the bad times, don’t let that burden you, make that motivate you.” Continue reading »

Evanescence has released a new single called ‘Imperfection’. Taken from the band’s next album, “Synthesis”, which is due on November 10, the song features full orchestration in a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds, with help from arranger and composer David Campbell.

“Synthesis” will feature two new Evanescence songs in addition to fan favorites re-recorded with a live orchestra and electronica. The album includes guest performance by famed violinist Lindsey Stirling onHi-Lo’, the other new song on the album.

Evanescence singer Amy Lee described the inspiration behind Imperfection’: “For me, this is the most important song on the album. I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn’t sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable. I had no choice. It’s for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression. I’m singing from the perspective of the person left behind, the person in the waiting room. It’s a plea to fight for your life, to stay. Don’t give in to the fear — I have to tell myself that every day. Nobody is perfect. We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences. Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.” Continue reading »
