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.”

October 12 Ghost Cult Mag premiered single “How is Your Heart?”
New York City’s The Morning Sea are releasing their new album Destructive Songs, the third in their career, on November 2nd. The self-proclaimed “Gotham Americana” band flexes their style with a multitude of influences but are mainly a stew of subversive, infectious and clever alternative rock and folk music. Ghost Cult is proud to partner with the band today to debut their new single “How Is Your Heart?”, right now!
You can buy the track right now and pre-order the album from Spotify here. They recently premiered the first single in the form of a crowd-sourced dance footage music video – ‘(I’ve Invented A) Maneuver’. They will be playing their hometown record release show Oct 30th atMercury Lounge NY, w/ Bird Streets.
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.”
