Death Blooms – You Are Filth
British metallers Death Blooms will unleash their new EP You Are Filth on April 26th! The announcement is accompanied by a fear-inducing video for new single Crosses!
Frontman Paul Barrow gives a hint into the EP with an explanation for Crosses: “Crosses is a song I wrote about a time when I lost a friend and the confusion I felt during those few months. Everything seemed like it was spiraling out of control; my work, my personal life, my relationships with people – everything. This is the best way I could put into words how I felt at that time. I think back at that whole period of time and in my mind, it always takes place in two churches. One may or may not have been real, but the other definitely was; and so the song represents how I internally dealt with this “fake” reality and what I was actually feeling.”

Free Throw – What’s Past Is Prologue
Free Throw have revealed their third album What’s Past Is Prologue will be released on March 29 on Triple Crown Records! The record focuses on the break up of a relationship with ones self and discusses reflection even when at rock bottom. This follows the band’s previous album, 2017’s Bear Your Mind, in the theme of mental health, something vocalist/guitarist Cory Castro has struggled with.
Cory explains: “This new album is very much about that time in my life, and the process I took over the last year building myself back up. With the last album, I was trying to talk about my mental health struggles but at the time, I was actually going through it. It felt like I was yelling from the void. This time I’m looking back into the void, and I’m finally able to understand what was really going on.”
