Latest News – RAIDER Premiere Music Video ‘Bound By No Fate’ Off Upcoming Album “Guardian of The Fire” via Metal Injection

Comparing it to the 2018 EP “Urge To Kill”, RAIDER has this to say:

“We brought back a lot of familiar elements but added so much more. ‘Guardian of The Fire’ is more diverse, more aggressive, and is frankly just going to hit way harder. We’re stoked to see what our fans and future fans think of these new tunes!”

The band set out with a goal of making this record to be an absolute assault from beginning to end.

Story Angles/ Fun Facts:
1. Raider had never been a full line up until 2020. Since inception, they’ve had fill-ins for second guitar duties live. They’re stoked to finally be fully-fledged and ready to showcase what we can do as a 5 piece unit.
2. The photographer that took their album’s photo of the band is none other than Wesley Raffan. The same man who took the picture of Sepultura on the back of 1989’s Beneath the Remains.
3. The band plays in E standard. No ones really doing it anymore and they’ve always been a fan of the tightness that E standard brings to the table. Combine Death-Thrash played in standard with blackened death metal vocals and you’ve basically got the recipe for their sound.

Track by track explanation ;
1. Bound By No Fate: This song is meant to be a barrage from beginning to end. It’s about forging your own path in spite of all the overwhelming evidence that your path is chosen for you.

2. No Sign of The Dawn: A groovy thrash attack about the cost of taking our world for granted. It’s a reflection on getting human priorities straight.

3. Endless Vengeance: This song pummels you with fast assaults and slow, pounding valleys. A story of the never-ending will to avenge and restore the balance between the betrayer and the betrayed.

4. Guardian of The Fire: At the heart of this album is the principle of keeping the truth alive and settling for nothing less. Musically this song is a winding journey that grooves, stanks and has a heavy-hitting chorus.

5. Infernal Justice: This song is kind of like a helix DNA strand: one twisting curve is an old school riff, the other is dark and almost black metal in character. With great power comes great responsibility and humanity wields great power. This song is about using that power for justice instead of evil.

6. Ravenous Hydra: Previously we said that this record revolves around the theme of overcoming, and the story of Hercules versus the Hydra is one that stood out and we wanted to write about. Sometimes it feels like when we conquer one hardship, two take its place. In spite of this, it’s important to keep moving forward. Musically, hydra is a reflection of battle – the chorus is the relentless head diving in to devour you, and the verses provide a small respite until the final head is claimed.

7. Offering of Souls: Part one of two – this and our final song go hand in hand. Every mythos on Earth and from beyond has their respective lore of both creator… and destroyer. This is definitely one of our grooviest songs with a pounding bassline that really gets your blood pumping.

8. Destroyer: Part two of two – it is only fitting that the final Destroyer be placed at the book end of the record. We wanted to put a voice to the archetype of the destroyer god and tell that story. We frame it in a riff that is both thrashy and rampaging that culminates in a hard-hitting and definitive chorus.

 

LA’s OUR DYING WORLD Delves Into Personal Struggles With Debut EP “Expedition” Out March 18th

LA’s OUR DYING WORLD Delves Into Personal Struggles With Debut EP “Expedition” Out March 18th

For fans of Testament, As I Lay Dying, Slayer, Havok, Amon Amarth, Skeletonwitch

OUR DYING WORLD, from Los Angeles, USA have compiled 5 heavy hitting tracks on their debut EP “Expedition” set to be released March 18, 2019. These tracks all have a personal meaning to Tom Tierney (drums) who envisioned the EP and went on to write it, later recruiting the rest of the lineup to finish the project.
Two singles have been released already from “Expedition” and the diversity between the two tracks shows that not only does the band have remarkable flexibility and musicianship, but they are able to captivate a wide audience using a variety of well-crafted elements. “Post Mortem” is a fast thrash attack conveying anger and determination whereas “Liberation” is a melodic doomy song that explores pain and suffering but also self-perseverance.
“Liberation” is available on YouTube

“Post Mortem” is available on YouTube

“Expedition” is a walkthrough Tierney’s year of struggles and letdowns in 2018.

“Emotionally, it was a tough year where a lot of life was rearranged and new foundations had to be created. Each song covers a topic or event that transpired, leading to the creation of the record as a whole.”
Tierney and Our Dying World invite the masses, especially fans of Testament, As I Lay Dying, Slayer and Amon Amarth to this personal “Expedition” on March 18, 2019, available at for pre-order on Bandcamp.

Track Listing:
1. The Desert Of The Real

“First off thank you for your support! Any advance pre-order or crowd funding perk you choose will help us go a VERY long way. We are 4 normal guys who work full time jobs and play in a full time metal band called CAYM. We work extremely hard to tour and make great music for our fans. We lose jobs, spend our life savings, miss countless occasions with family and friends all for the sake of living our dream. We can’t thank all our fans enough for the support you give us!! We are trying to raise funds to go towards our next album, which we will be recording in New York City, NY USA with LEGENDARY FRONTMAN/ PRODUCER JOE DUPLANTIER from the band GOJIRA. We are hoping that you can help us reach our goal so we can get our limited edition merch, record the album and basically live while we are away in New York City for a month. What we’re asking is just a small fraction of our cost. We have come up with many awesome prizes for you to choose from. We can’t express how much gratitude we have for everyone who helps us on this adventure. Thanks so much for your generosity and belief in this band.
