October 17 MetalSucks premiered Stonecutters’ new single.
Few metal albums this year will have as appropriate a title as Carved in Time, the newest offering from Louisville, KY’s Stonecutters. The briefest description of their music would be deathrash in a similar vein to Skeletonwitch and Revocation, but that would also be an oversimplification. Carved in Time draws on influences from across the history of metal, from NWOBHM to classic thrash to death metal to sludge to hardcore to melodeath to… well, you get the idea. Stonecutters expertly synthesize the entirety of metal history into something new, something that’s at once totally destructive and crazy fun, like illegal firecrackers or silently passing gas at a fancy cocktail party.
But don’t just take our word for it — listen for yourself, as today MetalSucks proudly premieres the Timely track “Wealth and Power.”

Destruction Songs, was recorded in producer/engineer Andy Baldwin’s (Bjork, St. Lucia, HAERTS, Morcheeba) cabin studio in upstate New York. Recorded mostly live over the course of a long weekend – with some additional recording done at Baldwin’s Brooklyn studio, Rola Pola. Although the music of The Morning Sea sounds upbeat and sunny at times, there is an underlying melancholy that runs through some of the tracks, with themes of hope, despair, love, loss, regret, and redemption. The album will be self-released by the band on November 2.

September 11 New Noise premiered Austin Lucas’ music video for his song “My Mother and The Devil” (watch it below). The track is taken from his latest album, Immortal Americans, which is available now through Cornelius Chapel Records.
“The album was written in no small part as tribute to the quickly changing region of Indiana I grew up in,” Lucas told Noisey. “I deliberately placed this body of work, squarely between the darkness of where I once saw my place in the world, and the light that I see myself moving towards now.”
September 25 - New Noise ran the premiere of The Morning Sea’s music video for their song “(I’ve invented a) Maneuver” – watch it below. The track is taken from the band’s album Destruction Songs, which is scheduled to be released later this Fall.
The band commented on the video:
The video for ‘(I’ve invented a) Maneuver’ is a DIY dance party. Featuring members of The Morning Sea and others dancing in black and white with flashes of color, the footage was culled together through crowd-sourced video submissions from friends and followers via a call-to-action on social media. The song itself arrived one day on a lark in the rehearsal room, when the band started riffing on an old bit by the comedian Eddie Izzard about the invention of the Heimlich Maneuver. We decided the best way to compliment this song which was born out of pure joy and silliness would be with a music video that exudes the same spirit.Destruction Songs, the third album by The Morning Sea, was recorded in producer/engineer Andy Baldwin’s (Bjork, St. Lucia, HAERTS, Morcheeba) cabin studio in upstate New York. Recorded mostly live over the course of a long weekend – with some additional recording done at Baldwin’s Brooklyn studio, Rola Pola – these songs capture the band in their most vibrant and creative state, feeding off of each other’s impulses and recreating the energetic vibe of their live shows. Musically the album is upbeat and electrifying, save for the final track which serves as a sort of cool-down reflection on what’s come before. Meanwhile, singer/songwriter Adam Cohen’s lyrics cover themes of hope, despair, love, loss, regret, and redemption.
