Metal Blade Records launches new edition of "6 Bands in 60 Seconds"

In conjunction with RED Music, Metal Blade Records has launched a new edition of the "6 Bands in 60 Seconds" campaign, where CEO Brian Slagel spotlights six artists from the label's roster every three months. The goal of the promotion is to help fans discover new music from some of the most promising acts in the scene. The latest installment of the series features Serpentine Dominion, Allegaeon, Destrage, Necromancing The Stone, If These Trees Could Talk, and Hammers Of Misfortune; to watch the video clip, and to learn more about the artists, please visit: http://metalblade.com/6bands

Imagine Killswitch Engage at their heaviest, with the immediately recognizable guitar playing of Adam Dutkiewicz, the precision drumming of former The Black Dahlia Murder member Shannon Lucas, and the legendary death metal growl of Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher - the result is Serpentine Dominion. After 7 years in the making, this highly anticipated project will finally be releasing their self-titled debut on October 28th.

Due out September 23rd, Allegaeon's Proponent for Sentience is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths.

You can try to put Destrage in a box but you will never succeed. Words such as "progressive", "cinematic", "mathcore", "technical" and "groove-laden", could be thrown at them, but really the only one you need is Destrage, for they are in a category of their own making. This has never been more true than on A Means To No End, the fourth full-length from the Milan, Italy-based 5-piece, due out October 21st. Riveting from start to finish, it leads the listener through an emotionally-charged labyrinth of complex yet catchy melody and muscle, following nobody's rules, and it stands out as one of the truly unique releases of 2016.

If flaccid, identikit, breakdown-laden "metal" is the disease, Necromancing The Stone's recently released debut full-length, Jewel of the Vile, is the cure. Featuring current/former members of Arsis (James Malone, guitars), The Absence (Jeramie Kling, drums), The Black Dahlia Murder (Ryan "Bart" Williams, bass) and Brimstone Coven (guitarist Justin Wood and vocalist "Big" John Williams), Necromancing The Stone "has brought back the glory days [of '80s heavy metal] with unbridled spirit" (Loudwire.com).

After four years of fine-tuning audio and visual components, instrumental post-rock outfit If These Trees Could Talk released their Metal Blade Records debut upon the music world this past June. The response was once again overwhelmingly positive, with MetalSucks.net declaring: "the music If These Trees Could Talk are putting out now is some of the finest they've ever written."

For their recently released sixth full-length, Dead Revolution, progressive heavy metallers Hammers of Misfortune enlisted Nick Dumitriu (Vhol, Ritual Chamber) to produce the record, utilizing a vintage Trident board and minimizing digital processing. The result is a warm, sharp sound that harkens back to productions like John Leckie's treatment of Pink Floyd's Meddle or David Hitchcock's master work in Camel's Mirage.
