Binary Code’s Jesse Zuretti Opens Up About Moonsblood‘s Long History In New Video

We’ve written recently about NJ progressive death metal outfit Binary Code and their upcoming sophomore album Moonsblood, which will be their first release in 6 years. Anyone who’s followed the band closely in the past few years knows that the long gap between releases was anything but intentional, but up until recently they’ve been almost completely mute about the causes of the delay. Shortly after Binary Code guitarist and songwriter Jesse Zuretti began dropping hints online that their new album would officially be coming this year, I asked to sit down with him and talk through what exactly happened, what got them to this place, and what fans can expect now.

Reel Good Sh1t: Best Music Vidyas Of April

Back once again for the renegade master… Oops, wrong meeting. Yes, it is time for my round up of the smartest music videos I’ve seen this month. Whether it’s sleek and shiny or gruesome and garish, I’ll watch it with both eyes peeled and all of my senses involved. This time around it’s the turn of the full band performance video. Stipulations of entry into this list include all members of band accounted for on film and at least five close up shots of instruments being played. These are great tracks this time around too whereas last month I chose a great video for an awful track. Yes. It was Babymetal. I digress, away we go!

Watch Moon Tooth In New Full Concert Video AND Video Interview

WELL HELLO THERE. It’s been a pretty goddamn long time since I’ve written one of these posts up, almost embarrassingly so. To be fair, the last concert videos I posted here of Neurosis and Sumac were some of my favorites I’ve done, so if I were to leave you all with something to hold you over, I could’ve done far worse. The truth of the matter though is that for a number of reasons (mostly beginning and ending with making a living as a freelancer), I just don’t have the time like I did even a year ago to dedicate to producing these kind of high-quality concert videos on a consistent basis. But even though my output has slowed down considerably, I am as determined as ever to create interesting and awesome content for everyone to enjoy, which is why I’m so pleased to be finally launching these couple of videos today of Long Island’s eclectic, energetic, and amazing Moon Tooth!

Hey! Listen To Our Hollow, Our Home!

While I’m usually the last to jump on any given bandwagon at any given time, I’m getting on this one while it’s fresh and hot. UK Metalcore upstarts Our Hollow, Our Home are one of a fresh batch of new acts splashing together the heartfelt musings of The Ghost Inside with the kind of metal assault that I Killed The Prom Queen deliver at a professional level. There’s enough of these acts around that the good ones can go unnoticed while the “meh”s of the crop get the limelight. This is not the case here. Jam this band and forever be thankful that their mixture of soaring choruses and bounce happy breakdowns is now plugged into your brain via me.

VIDEO PREMIERE: InAeona – Never Forever

Boston natives InAeona are a hard band to pin down, sonically. Described in the press as a post-metal band, they certainly aspire to cosmic heights and they pack the wall of sound to get them there. Structurally and instrumentally, alternative and industrial metal hooks and grooves seep in, easily begging comparison to Untouchables-era Korn with the nu-prog leanings of Karnivool.

Painted In Exile Launch Indiegogo For First Full-Length Album + Talk To A Sense Of Gravity At NAMM 2016

Long Island progressive metal band Painted In Exile have not exactly had an easy go of it since releasing their initial EP back in 2009. Beseeched with a myriad of personal issues and lineup changes, the band have been seemingly in a state of absolute stasis for the past 6 years and change. Though never broken up or officially on hiatus, they played no shows for nearly 5 years until their official “reunion” show last month. And now after what must have felt like an absolute eternity for the band and longtime fans, Painted In Exile have officially announced their first full-length album in the form of an Indiegogo campaign.

Guest Post: A Sense of Gravity Wrap-Up Their NAMM Experience and Discuss Album #2

We’ve had the absolute pleasure of presenting videos over the past few days that were shot and made possible by one of the blog’s favorite up-and-coming prog metal bands, A Sense of Gravity. For our official NAMM video wrap-up though, we decided that it’d be nice to let the band speak in their own words about the experience and what’s coming up on the horizon for them. So here’s C.J. Jenkins (vocals) to tell you all about it!
