Platinum sellers Ugly Kid Joe have come back after a long vacation, and they’re ready to rock harder than ever. The California band’s new EP, Stairway to Hell, is due on April 16th through MRI, and it contains songs that span the full repertoire of influences that made Ugly Kid Joe the soundtrack for young snowboarders, surfers, and keggers worldwide.

Watch the video for the single, “I’m Alright”, below.

Devil’s Paradise
You Make Me Sick

Another Beer
Cat In the Cradle (acoustic)
Would You Like To Be There (acoustic)
No One Survives (acoustic)
EPK (video)*
It’s Alright (video)*

Whether it’s the hypnotic riffery of “Devil’s Paradise”, the melodic power-fueled darkness of “No One Survives” or the irrepressibly chuggin’ chorus of “I’m Alright,” Stairway to Hell makes it clear that Ugly Kid Joe has everything they started with, and have added fatter chops and a superior grip on songwriting to their arsenal.

schwag ‘stache: LEANDER RISING $5 for August on Amazon

August 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Heart Tamer, U.S. Debut From Leander Rising On Sale Now At Amazon For $5 The Entire Month Of August!

Leander Rising - Heart Tamer Artwork  “The guitars snarl in with a riff that sounds like Alice in Chains on a crazed Segway. The song grows into a punishing party mix of Nevermore, In Flames and Dew-Scented trading their best licks.” – (Heavy Metal)

“…a glorious mix of extreme & progressive metal styles that is sure to raise plenty of eyebrows” – Sea of Tranquility

“Overall, this is a great debut for a band that deftly mixes elements of melodic death, death, hardcore, and even some hard rock… this album is a definite must-listen for metal heads.” – The New Review

If you haven’t purchased Heart Tamer, the debut album from Hungary’s Leander Rising, now is the time do due so. On sale for the month of August, Amazon is offering the digital download of Heart Tamer for only $5.

Based out of Budapest, Leander Rising’s 14-song debut album Heart Tamer delivers a whole new form of aggression, passion and ferocity. Caustic yet eloquent in their cathartic delivery, the band’s debut infuses a molten mix of influences that erupted with force.

Originally a solo project for its namesake Leander Köteles, his first video for the song “Bound To Belong” created an internet buzz throughout Hungary which caught the attention of Attila Vörös. A young and well-known guitarist who has toured worldwide with the Seattle metal band Nevermore, Attila reached out to Leander via e-mail and their collaboration began.  In the beginning Attila only came on to do some guest solos but as time went on they found their true sound was together.

AOL Noisecreep premiered the video for “Ghost Away,” watch it here.

Leander Rising is: Leander Köteles (vocals, songwriter, lyricist, keys & bass) / Attila Vörös (Guitar, songwriter) / Jozzy (Guitar, co-songwriter) / Bela Budai (Drums)
