Taking his cerebral brand of auditory darkness to a new level, Trillion Red mastermind Patrick Brown is one of metal's few musicians who, with his latest creation, can legitimately claim to have discovered new musical territory. Metaphere is Trillion Red's debut full-length and follow's last year’s Two Tongues EP. This LP mightily sheds 'the disconnects' of Two Tongues, and unleashes a united and firm mark onto the dark progressive avant-garde metal sound. It showcases the enormous leap Patrick has taken in creating soundscapes that alternate between heavy and hammering structures and ambient interludes, which all come together to create a twisted musical abstract.

The Attack’s upcoming EP Too Punk for the Hardcore Show, Too Hardcore for the Punk Show pokes fun at the fact that the band is dedicated to their punk and hardcore roots despite current trends in the underground. Brad Palkevich, guitarist for The Attack states: "Everyone needs to go back and look at some old fliers, punk bands like The Pagan Babies were on the bill for the NYC Youth Crew Shows. Metal bands like Nuclear Assault were on gigs with GBH and Agnostic Front. For crying out loud, Slapshot played with The Exploited in New York when I was a kid. You would never see a show like that these days."
