“It’s everything you loved about the first record, turned up,” said vocalist/guitarist Rosie Bones. “Keeping things scrappy, raw and real, with enough electronic beats to keep our industrial dance-heads happy and enough heartbreakers to keep our romantics listening.”

Assemble The Chariots – Unyielding Night

Assemble The Chariots will release new album Unyielding Night on July 19 through Seek & Strike.

The band said: “From the beginning, our collective mindset was to primarily focus on the story and to ignore musical trends and boundaries, as we wanted the album to feel like a movie soundtrack.

“We also wanted to make playing the songs live fun as well. This means that instead of only writing super technical and complex songs, we took a different approach by contrasting the more challenging parts with more simpler elements whenever the songs needed them. This provided us the freedom to perform and enjoy the music on a whole different level.“

They added: “Our new music is a non-traditional combination of traditional elements to create an epic showcase of what metal can be in modern times. The way the songs have been arranged and composed keeps the listener aware and drags you into the song. Every note and hit has been carefully crafted with a greater picture in mind. This, in conjunction with the highly thought-out lore behind the songs, creates a combination that truly feels fresh and unique in a pretty saturated field.

“Our sincere wish is that anyone who stumbles upon this album, would be open to listening to it as a piece of heavy metal history, instead of an example of what a specific genre should to them sound like.  

If you like blast-beats, mega-epic orchestrations, spectacular live shows and nerding out to intricate lore, or if you are just yearning for a unique sounding metal band to add to your song libraries, Assemble The Chariots is your band.”

VOLA – Friend of a Phantom

VOLA will release album Friend of a Phantom on November 1 through Mascot Records.

Drummer Adam Janzi said: “We have had the time to internalise ‘Witness’ and let its aftermath sink in, which has shaped how we approached ‘Friend Of A Phantom.’

“Our personal tastes have changed, the way we approach our instruments and songwriting has changed, our lives have changed, time has passed, and adventures have been had. Whatever piece of melancholy that ‘Witness’ had, has just grown and become a central part of this new album. I feel that VOLA has grown and reached a new moment in its life, maturing.”

Massive Wagons – Earth to Grace

Massive Wagons will release new album Earth to Grace on November 8 through Earache Records.

Vocalist Barry ‘Baz’ Mills said: “People ask after every album is written and recorded, ‘is this your best one yet?’ It’s a question I don’t like answering to be honest, I can’t speak for the listener. All I can say, and it’s the honest truth, is that we could not be happier with what we’ve created. We took a brave step to work with a new producer, but Matt was someone we felt brought a completely fresh production style to the table.

“I believe we have some of our best music to date on ‘Earth To Grace’, we are super proud of this album. Matt’s input on melodies and arrangement was truly invaluable, and Adam’s songwriting has just vanished off the scale, I think. Everyone in the band really knuckled down writing these songs and I genuinely think it shows.”

Loveless will release their new album Loveless II on September 13 through Rise Records.

“We put everything into this record, and I am so grateful it’s finally coming out,” shares Julian Comeau.

Loveless has always been a deeply personal project, but we got to work with some amazing collaborators this time to really bring out our best both instrumentally and lyrically. We assembled the dream team and it’s been an absolute joy to hear Loveless in a way that’s never been heard before, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
