Do you like Satan? Well Happy Halloween then! Attila gets down with the devil in their new track “Three 6” via SharpTone Records.
“Three 6” comes crashing in like a hurricane with a heavy riff and ferocious double-bass pedal heavy drums. The anthemic track begs to be sung along to and harks back to that classic, irreverent, and always brutal Attila sound and is a treat for all the band’s loyal fans. As frontman Fronz declares in the first few seconds of the song, “Back with that heavy shit!”
The song is not yet available on platforms such as Spotify or Apple Music, but will be available for purchase November 10.
Listen to Attila’s satanic new track below.

On this day in rock history, Queen released “Bohemian Rhapsody” in Britain and hit No. 1 on the charts – where it stayed for eight weeks straight. The single sold more than a million copies by the end of January 1976.
Forty-two years after being released, “Bohemian Rhapsody” remains one of Queen’s most popular songs. The four-part opera style rock song is considered groundbreaking on many levels. More specifically, a promotional video accompanied the single when released and is often considered to be the commencement of regular practice among other artists and bands.
In Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, Queen guitarist Brian May said that the band was bewildered when Mercury brought them a draft of this four-part suite.
The legend of “Bohemian Rhapsody” will long live on and will always impress virgin ears.

Blues rock is back, and with a bit more grit and "oomph" than we're used to. Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown are bursting back into the rock spotlight with their first full-length album since 2013. The self-titled album is due for release via SnakeFarm Records at the end of this week, November 3rd - and you can color me excited. I've personally been a fan of the four-piece bluesy group since their first album Wild Child and it feels good to reignite that flame.
The band has just dropped the third single off their upcoming album, along with a shiny new video, called "Heartland." The song doesn't mess around, starting off with a sputtery, fuzzy guitar tone just before the drum kit turns the appetizer into a huge appetite. Speaking of Appetites for Destruction, Tyler Bryant and his crew have shared the stage with legends such as Guns 'N' Roses, AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Deep Purple. If you like rootsy guitar with tight and concise songwriting, look no further than Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown. Check out their lyric video below - and while you're at it, check out their upcoming tour dates below that!

Phinehas released a powerful new track and video titled “Hell Below.” The song is off of the band’s upcoming album Dark Flag, which is due out Nov. 17 via Solid State Records.
“Hell Below” is a dialogue between murdered North Korean civilians, and the Kim Dynasty members that killed them. The band wanted to draw attention to North Korean concentration camps.
“This music video is Part One of Two of the story of 'Jayu' ('freedom 'in Korean) as he attempts to escape the grip of a North Korean concentration camp while freeing another prisoner along the way,” Phinehas said.
The video begins with a display of gold text describing the history and events surrounding Korean concentration camps. As a woman strikes a hammer against a rock the subtitle reads, “Today, an estimated 150,000-200,000 North Koreans live in political concentration camps.”
“There is no escape” reads across a clip of a soldier mercilessly beating the woman. The remainder of the video shows a woman attempting to escape a walled room, and an unexpected confrontation between the woman and soldier from the video's introduction.
The rest of the album also revolves around the Kim regime in North Korea, although not solely on the political turmoil.
“This album isn't a political statement,” frontman Sean McCulloch said. “This isn't a conservative or liberal agenda. Dark Flag is about human rights and how precious and valuable life is.”
The band will begin a Fall tour starting on Nov. 9 in St. Lous. They will perform with Fit For a King, Like Moths to Flames, and In Hearts Wake.

Fans of Linkin Park and music in general have been mourning Chester Bennington since his passing on July 20th of this year, and have strongly kept his memory alive.
Fellow musicians have gathered together to honor Chester, whether it be a fan covering their favorite Linkin Park song on YouTube like Peter Hollens and Jonathan Young, to One Republic honoring both Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington with Chris’s daughter, Toni, on Good Morning America.
Linkin Park will continue on and perform a tribute to Chester on October 27th at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. While the tribute was declared as a public event in August, it has been upgraded to a concert that has since sold out.
The night will consist of Linkin Park themselves, but also other musicians to help celebrate Chester’s legacy.
While the concert has not surprisingly sold out, you can see be apart of it by live streaming it on the band’s YouTube channel at 7:45 PST.

Puppy recently premiered a new video for “Demon”, their latest single off their forthcoming debut. Album release date to be announced.
In this new track, Puppy easily talks happiness and acceptance all while delving into their inner demons and relaying their group exploration of “Ascension and Transcendence…”.
"The song is about learning to live with and accept your demons, and how they can even have a positive impact on your life," said Puppy about their latest single. "For the video, we wanted to create something inspired by various cults, quasi-religions, and pseudo-sciences that literally sell the notion that they can free you from unhappiness. Which is, of course, a lie as true happiness can only come from buying the music and merchandise of Puppy."
This colorful video counterpart, directed by Puppy’s own drummer Billy Howard Price, talks acceptance and growth while also introducing their fans to their creative side!
Plus, aside from giving us an interesting visual it introduces us to their new sound. “Demons” serves as our first look at their forthcoming album, produced alongside Tom Daigety (Ghost, Royal Blood, Killing Joke).
This hardworking three-piece has also released a reworked version of their Vol II EP via Spinefarm Records on September 29. This re-release now contains six remastered and expanded charts, as well as a video track for their song “Beast”.

Silverstein have been a household name in the alternative music scene for quite some time, and with their new album,Dead Reflection, creating a buzz among fans, it only made sense for them to hit the road in early 2018.
The Get Free Tour lineup will create a night to remember as Tonight Alive, Broadside, and Pictureesque join forces and share the stage.
Silverstein isn’t the only act with new tunes to hit the road with. Tonight Alive’s new album, Underworld, releases on 1/12, 6 days before the tour begins and therefore adding to the hype.
The tour will start on 1/19 in Cleveland, Ohio and wrap up on 3/1 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
You can get tickets here.
