As they gear up for the release of their new album Trumpeting Ecstasy on May 5th (Profound Lore), experimental death-noise band, Full Of Hell have released a new music video for the album's title track!

TheQuietus said it's "...suitably gloomy to fit the track's scuzzy, industrial streak." The song features guest vocals from Canadian singer/songwriter Nicole Dollanganger and the video was written, shot and edited by Jordan Musheno and Ian Killian.

New Music Video From Lorna Shore

With anticipation for their upcoming album, Flesh Coffins, looming - Lorna Shore are teasing listeners with a brand new music video for their track, "FVNERAL MOON."

Partnering with Metal Injection to debut the first track off the album, titled, "Denounce the Light," fans have been itching to hear more from Lorna Shore. Yesterday, Lorna Shore partnered with Lambgoat to premiere their powerful new music video for "FVNERAL MOON."

Check it out below!

"FVNERAL MOON" is a dark track about the ghost of a troubled man who has committed suicide due to his inability to live with the things he has done but cannot escape existence even in death, so he's haunted to live as a ghost to humanity alive to witness pain forever. 

Vocalist Tom Barber adds, "Sometimes people forget, that beyond our jobs, everything we own or our social standings, We're just people. Some of us damaged and simply trying to cover a wound so none can see weakness, and some of us just covered in scars just ashamed of their past wanting no one to see their mistakes. Everything has its way of surfacing in the end, and you are the master of your own fate. Whatever it may be, understand that everyone struggles, no one is perfect, and always acknowledge there is beauty in the struggle of life. Never give in to the darkness."

Cries of the Captive Begin The Regular Tour

Utah deathcore band Cries of the Captive will be embarking on their first tour, The Regular Tour, to promote their latest LP, called Totalitarian. This album is the follow-up to their successful Imperialist EP. The band will be touring to support the album alongside Shawshank Redeemed and Artesyn.

Cries of the Captive formed in 2011  by Tyler Conner and Jordan Huemiller, and they soon brought on other members. As a few musicians changed out, the band finally settled on the main line-up in 2013 when Conner stepped away from the band. 

In 2013, they released their debut Imperialist EP to much praise, and were signed to Imminence Records in 2015. The new LP, Totalitarian, was released this past September. 

Mason Blair said this about the upcoming tour: “This is our first tour we have done in the US and we will be playing all new music from our most recent album. Which means we are bringing our heaviest tunes through the west coast, so everyone should be ready to throwdown!” 

Here are the Regular Tour dates, featuring Cries of the Captive, Artesyn, and Shawshank Redeemed. 

The Regular Tour:
1/7 – Logan, UT @ Whysound
1/8 – Pocatello, ID @ Elk's Lodge
1/9 – Shiprock, NM @ Asterix
1/10 – St. George, UT @ The Arte Gallery
1/12 – Mesa, AZ @ Club Red
1/13 – San Diego, CA @ SOMA

Cries Of The Captive Unleash New Album

Imminence Records has been signing some of the best upcoming acts in the underground music scene, releasing albums for Hook-approved bands like Stages, The Apprehended, and Perdition, to name a few. However, Utah's nastiest deathcore juggernauts Cries Of The Captive may be the heaviest band they've pulled onto their roster as of late, and as of September 23rd, their debut album, Totalitarian, is available for your listening pleasure! We've provided the title track below as a sample of their brutality, and you can stream the album in its entirety by following the Bandcamp link at the bottom of the page!

Started in 2011, Cries Of The Captive's current line-up consists of Mason Blair on vocals; Jordan Huemiller, Skyler Dustin, and Justin Hill on guitar; and Kyler Loughlin on drums.  The band took a year to bring its fans a solid body of new material, kicking a notch up on the bone-breaking rhythmic sensibilities, merciless beatdown-influenced grooves, and gnarly guttural, slam-inspired vocal delivery they're known for. 

Totalitarian Tracklist:

1. Grief
2. Closed Casket
3. Totalitarian
4. Dead Zone
5. Gaptooth
6. Cataclysm
7. Collapse
8. Abomination
9. Dissolution

The band will also be playing a show with Whitechapel and Oceano on October 24th in Idaho Falls, with more shows presumably to follow in support of the album. Be sure to follow this band online if you're liking what you're hearing. As always, stay tuned!

Perdition Shares Guitar Play-Through

Last Friday, Eerie, PA’s own Perdition released their label-debut EP Lost Rites, through Imminence Records.

It’s not often that Pennsylvania spawns a melodic/symphonic death metal band, let alone one as skilled and well-respected as this bunch. Meanwhile, they’ve been hard at work to show their fans that their guitarists are a force to be reckoned with, releasing a stellar video play-through of their single “The Hymn Creeper” performed rhythmically by their guitarist and multi-insturmentalist star player Andrew DeSanctis.

Witness the sheer awesomeness below!

Having formed back in the fall of 2008, Perdition is currently composed of Cryptic Josh on vocal duties, the aforementioned DeSanctis on guitar, bass, samples, and backing vocals, Noah Scarpelli on drums, Clare DeSanctis covering keys and synths, and Ian Ford on bass.

They play a brand of politically-charged symphonic death metal that sounds like early Fleshgod Apocalypse (which is definitely a high compliment), as well as displaying elements of The Black Dahlia Murder. 

The band’s new EP, Last Rites, kicked up the bar for PA bands everywhere when it came out on June 3rd, delivering some technical brutality that is leaving listeners craving more.

Says drummer Scarpelli of the EP: “The new EP represents our tireless efforts to reinvigorate a genre of music plagued by over-quantization and volume. We are proud to release the first single off of the EP. The song is fast, brutal, and precise with a take-no-prisoner cadence. Its lyrics reflect our societal shortcomings and our overall ignorance towards intelligent, political, and social progress. With every listen of the track an angel loses her wings and a fascist loses his toupee.”

You can purchase their album right here. For further news on this marvelous band’s future plans, take a look at their website and be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter. With a bomb EP like this out, the band will be picking up speed in no time, so as always, stay tuned!

Sabretooth Releases "Slack Jaw" Lyric Video

For anyone out there who’s been pumping the newest EP, The Great Unknown from Peekskill, NY deathcore outifit Sabertooth, as well as anyone who as of now has been blissfully unaware of their existence, you’re in luck!

The band recently released a lyric video for lead single “Slack Jaw”, and you can view it right here on The Hook. This is the third song off the new EP, which was engineered by Richard Pasquarella.

Check this heaviness out below!

This band is just nasty.

Consisting of Wesley Robinson on vocals, Ryan Santone and Devon Day on guitar, Nico Mario Petroccitto on bass, and Justin White on drums, Sabertooth considers itself a mix between deathcore and hip-hop. The band does this by incorporating straightforward, biting lyrical content that is in the vein of Attila or Emmure, and Robinson’s vocal delivery is a force to be reckoned with. 

Their EP, The Great Unknown, just came out on June 3rd! 

You can pick it up on iTunes right now and listen to the brutish heaviness for yourself. If this band has piqued your interest (aka insatiable urge to stomp, swing your arms violently, and headbang yourself into the hospital), follow these guys on Facebook and Twitter!

Fresh off a new release, there’s sure to be more to come soon enough!
