hype-2015

We know 2014 is not over yet but you’ll forgive us if we gaze past its dying moments and into the bright flame that is 2015 (wow, that was metal as fuck). A lot of us honestly believe that we are living in a Golden Age of Metal, going by number AND quality of releases in the past 3-4 or years. Keeping that in mind, it seems as if 2015 is gearing up to be just as badass and filled with amazing music as 2014. In order to get you prepped for all the goodness that is about to descend on us, we’ve compiled a list of releases we are currently expecting in 2015.

Just to make something clear: an “expected release” is any release which is confirmed or very highly likely. Your mileage may vary though, so it’s quite possible some of these won’t actually come out in 2015. However, we did all we can to research these and make sure that they are either confirmed or extremely likely due to the band being in the studio, signing to a new label or hinting towards a close release. We haven’t bothered with “mythical” albums that might see release, such as Tool (yeah right) or Necrophagist (please). So, enjoy! Head on over the jump for the full list and let us know in the comments if there’s anything we missed.

Here we are, once again, facing a Periphery track from their upcoming double album, Juggernaut. This one comes to us from Alpha and I have to be frank with you: I love it. It’s so much better than the other tracks, which I did not care for all that much. This has dynamics, it kicks and bucks and it goes places. Head on over the jump to stop reading my two-bit opinion and listen to the song!

As we near the release of their Juggernaut, Periphery release another crumb of music our way. This prog band is definitely trying something different. Periphery’s new track released today and ‘The Scourge’, released last month, are setting a new tone for their upcoming album and both of its parts.

Earlier this year, we got word that Periphery vocalist Spencer Sotelo had been officially recruited as the new vocalist of From First To Last, Tampa, Florida’s resident post-hardcore act.

After the news landed in April, there were literally dozens of fans worldwide anxiously awaiting what Spencer might sound like with this new act, after having his voice so heavily proliferated with Periphery. The wait is over, however!

Skyharbor – Guiding Lights

skyharbor-guiding-lights-review

For their first full studio release, Skyharbor‘s two-disc Blinding White Noise created a sonic shockwave that reverberated around the world receiving plaudits at every turn. They made enough of an impact to have their second funded by their fans so they really must have felt the pressure when constructing it. We are therefore delighted to report that this Indian-British combo have knocked it out of the park.

We’ve been talking quite a lot about Outrun the Sunlight and with good reason; their first single is amazing, they’ve recently added Adrian Perez to their ranks and we just can’t wait for their album to be released. Happily then, the band have announced a release date for said album, Terrapin, on 12/16. Not only that, but they have launched an Indiegogo to help you not only pre-order the album but assist in its making as well. Head on over the jump for more details!

Periphery just wrapped up a tour with The Contortionist, Intervals, and TOOTHGRINDER, but why should the fun stop there? Oh wait, it didn’t, because the boys went to Japan immediately after. But now they’re home and things will keep on rolling into 2015!
