parting gift finally drop their EP ‘Ensom’

The wait is over,  Parting Gift‘s new EP ‘Ensom’ is here at last. The Manchester noisemakers already gave us a taster with singles ‘Pale’ and ‘Without Sin’, but the full EP is an absolute rager. ‘Ensom’ marks the band’s first release on Fearless Records (the same label as the likes of Underoath and I Prevail) and it’s going to send them stratospheric, trust us.

Whitechapel‘s highly anticipated seventh album, ‘The Valley’ is out next Friday. But if you can’t wait until then, they’ve released a new single to tide you over. Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster, as ‘Hickory Creek’ is a hard hitting slice of melodic deathcore, with a heart wrenching video to match.

Amon Amarth are charging back with their hotly-anticipated new album, ‘Berserker’, on 3rd May.  This week the Swedish death metallers unleashed the seriously heavy first single,  ‘Raven’s Flight’, from the album. The video for the track, the first in a triology showing a fictional night on the road with the band, will keep you more than satiated while you wait. Get learning the words in time for June.

Catch Parting Gift, Whitechapel and Amon Amarth at Download Festival, 14th-16th June 2019. They’ll join headliners Def Leppard, Slipknot and Tool and many more in Donington Park.
