Atreyu In Our Wake The seventh full length album from the metalcore titans Atreyu, following on from 2015's Long Live, working once again with producer John Feldmann. "What are you going to leave behind?", asks Brandon. "We named the album 'In Our Wake' because a lot of the concepts address this question. There are lyrics about dealing with your own personal demons and darkness. Some of it is about our children, which his who we live directly in our wake. Others are about the general public and the outpouring of hate and fear - especially in our country. We created something of a concept record without even trying." Spinefarm Records CD | LP
Protest The Hero Pacific Myth The fifth major release from Canadian progressive metal band Protest The Hero, the Pacific Myth EP follows on from 2013's independently released Volition. Singer Rody Walker gives a precise synopsis of the core beliefs that breed such unwavering devotion from their fans around the world: “I'd love to have a lasting legacy of unflinching integrity. That we didn't play by anyone's rules other than our own and the people who care about us”. Despite the band's devil-may-care attitude and desire to have fun, unusual for an act as musically accomplished as PTH, they are not ones to shy away from hard-hitting topics, prepared to add genuine weight and message to their 'tear-you-face-off' riffs… Spinefarm Records CD

My Passion Inside This Machine Expected 18th April - New My Passion album The follow up to 2009’s ‘Corporate Flesh Party’, released by the band themselves on their Style Suicide label, ‘Inside This Machine’ is MP album Number Two; 14 brand new tracks produced by John Mitchell – It Bites guitarist and one of the UK’s brightest young producers with a string of great projects (including Enter Shikari, Funeral For A Friend & Architects) to his name. For MP, this much-anticipated follow-up release represents a significant step forward; a weightier, more mature, more well-rounded set of songs, delivered with spirit, flair and a very real sense of dynamics. As with everything the band put their ever-fertile mind to, there is NO middle ground here – this is very much a statement of intent, a monster of an album bursting with vitality and promise. www.myspace.com/mypassion Spinefarm Records CD
While She Sleeps So What? For a limited time, we can get some signed copies of the album, don't sleep on them. Limited Double LP is on yellow/black splatter coloured vinyl. Deluxe CD is limited and in a book-format. Another offering of crushing metalcore from While She Sleeps, and this time round they have shifted things up again. Recorded with producer Carl Bown, ‘SO WHAT?’ promises to be another defiant step forwards. “It’s going to blow your mind!” promises Mat, and if first single ‘Anti-Social’ is anything to go by, he isn’t kidding. An explosive, relentless four-minute anthem, it takes everything you know and love about While She Sleeps – clattering riffs, bruising breakdowns, snarling lyrics and big-ass singalongs – and sticks them in a blender. It’s punk, it’s heavy metal, it couldn’t be any other band but them, and yet it sounds unlike anything you’ve heard from them before. It’s the sound of While She Sleeps reborn. “It’s still very different – as much as it still sounds like While She Sleeps,” agrees Sean. “You get a taste of this new area that we’re flowing into. Even though it’s still really heavy, you get this twinge of what’s to come.” Spinefarm Records CD | LP
