Black Map – Melodoria
Black Map will release their new album Melodoria on November 5 through Minus Head Records.
“Music and art, to me, has always been a kind of human binding agent,” singer/bass player Ben Flanagan explains of the album the band co-produced with Zach Ohren (Chelsea Grin, Machine Head). “Even amidst the pure chaos of our world, here is this thing that’s there to excite us, to comfort us, and to help us get through it.”
“We went for a very direct approach early on with the tunes on the first album (… And We Explode). The natural progression into In Droves was to branch out into other areas of our influences and music we enjoy,” explains guitar player Mark Engles. “Melodoria is yet another step out onto different limbs of our tastes and abilities.”

ten56. will release debut EP Downer Part 1 on November 24 through Out Of Line.
Vocalist Aaron Matts said: “It was definitely a conscious decision to unravel and release the three singles in this order, just to show people that we’re not a one-trick pony.”
He adds: “It’s honestly been the most enjoyable time I’ve personally had when writing and recording music. Downer Part.1 is a six-track, and it’s supposed to sound bloody horrible!”
Save Face – Another Kill For The Highlight Reel
Save Face will release new album Another Kill for the Highlight Reel on October 29 through Epitaph Records.
Vocalist Tyler Povanda said: “I’m just trying to make something that’s interesting to me, despite whether anyone likes it or hates it.
“If you’re going to make art, you have to be willing to have your spirit crushed, and I have repeatedly. But in that, I made the best thing I ever have.”
“It can be hard to reconcile the fact that we live in a world where we’re taught that the validation of your art determines its worth,” he continues. “The only thing that makes it worth it is creating something that is so inspiring to you that it feels like it’s worth the struggle to put it out into the world—and that’s what these songs did for me.”
