End of Dayz “Searching For a Way Out” Out Now

Posted by admin on May.20, 2024

The Pacific Northwest’s END OF DAYZ have unleashed their debut EP “Searching For a Way Out”, streaming everywhere now! A split released between Creator-Destructor / Code of Conduct.

With five new tracks of no-frills hardcore, “a slow burning process about our frustrations with life” is how END OF DAYZ describes the exercise of writing Searching For A Way Out and its lyrical content. The band’s foundational influences are apparent; an antagonistic delivery of slamming hooks and adrenaline-jacked breakdowns, fans of Marauder, Crown Of Thornz Biohazard, Killing Time, Madball, King Nine, 100 Demons, Cold As Life, and Fury Of Five will devour.

Recorded by Jake Waggoner, Searching For A Way Out was mixed by Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recording, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audioseige, and completed with artwork by Professor D.E.D., logo by Caleb Sugiyama, photography by Sophia Prestes, and layout by Ian Bouchard who also supplies guest vocals.

DARKNESS EVERYWHERE have announced their debut LP, “To Conquer Eternal Damnation” out May 10th, 2024! The first single “Retaliation” is streaming everywhere now, with an official video on YouTube.

DARKNESS EVERYWHERE unites vocalist/guitarist Ben Murray (Light This City, A Wilhelm Scream), guitarist Cameron Stucky (Crepuscle), drummer Garrett Garvey, and renowned producer/engineer Zack Ohren on bass. “To Conquer Eternal Damnation” follows the 2022 release of their debut EP, “The Seventh Circle”, as well as the 2023 stand alone single, “The Glow of Haunted Existence”. The new album was recorded by the band’s own Zack Ohren at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, in November 2023, with artwork by Adam Burke.

The glory years of early In Flames, At the Gates, and Dark Tranquillity are what largely inform the sound and aesthetic of DARKNESS EVERYWHERE. The core of the band is built on the feel of those legendary records, while offering a refreshing take on the no frills melodic death metal sound akin to the output of modern outfits Horrendous, Majesties, and Upon Stone. The band wastes no time in getting to the point of melodic death metal riffing and driving, thrashing tempos.

IRON FRONT Join Creator-Destructor, Announce ‘Hooked’

Posted by admin on Dec.07, 2023

We’re thrilled to welcome Oakland, California-based brutal death metal outfit IRON FRONT to the label for the January release of their violent second LP,  Hooked. Listen to the first single from the album, “Dissolved in Resin” HERE!

Formed in 2019 and taking inspiration from old-school death metal and NYHC, the output of IRON FRONT is a hardcore-adjacent, slam-induced alloy of pure savagery, calling to mind 200 Stab Wounds, Snuffed On Sight, Skinless, Bodybox, Internal Bleeding, and Suffocation.

Now, IRON FRONT arrives with their most decimating material to date with their second album, Hooked, the succinct but dense record savagely unloads seven earthmoving tracks stacked with infectious riff-hooks and earthmoving beatdowns.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Nicholas Morosini at Inpatient Studios in Oakland, Hooked was completed with cover art by Julian Felipe Mora Ibañez.

Stay tuned for more news, singles, and preorders!

We’re super excited to announce the Partycrasher 10th Anniversary Remastered Deluxe Edition, streaming everywhere now!

Guitarist/Vocalist Trevor Reilly states, “Partycrasher will always be special to us. It’s the first full length that we recorded ourselves and it’s a flagship of our catalog. Just in time for its 10 year birthday, we are proud to have acquired the full rights to the album and given it the full remaster treatment to celebrate and holy mackerel it sounds like a vicious fucking flamethrower now more than ever. We also included two acoustic demos for The Last Laugh and Devil Don’t Know from the writing sessions, and the real gem of the bonus material is the full band song Swallowed The Sea, which we recorded the instrumentals for during the original Partycrasher recording sessions and never finished until now. It’s a nice exclamation point for that chapter of the band’s lineup, and we are stoked to finally let it out into the world today on its ten year birthday. Much love, T”
