California hardcore metal band Twitching Tongues are quickly approaching their 10th anniversary, and to keep the excitement flowing is the release of their new studio album "Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred." It is the band's fourth full-length release and features nine, hard hitting anthems, beginning with the gentle acoustics interlude that gives way to the swift pace of "AWOL (State Of The Union)." The album continues with the explosiveness of "Harakiri" and the dark overtones of "Kill For You." Twitching Tongues display their more mainstream metal side with the chugging rhythm of "Forgive & Remember," before returning to close out their new album with the thunderous attack of "Gaining Purpose" and the seven-minute epic progressive metal piece, "Deification (Union Of The State)."

Also arriving in March is the latest release from the legendary European death metal band, The Crown. Their new album titled "Cobra Speed Venom" is the band's tenth studio album since their conception back in 1992. The new 10-track release begins with a marching rhythm that gives way to a wave of chaos as if the wall of sound crumbled from the musical attack of "Destroyed By Madness." The intensity continues to build with the sonic blast of "Iron Crown" and the bashing rhythm of "We Avenge!" The shear quickness of "Cobra Speed Venom" and "Necrohammer" will certainly have the adrenaline pumping as The Crown look to finish their new album with more melodic instrumental piece "Where My Grave Shall Stand" and seven-minute progressive metal epic "The Sign Of The Scythe."

On that same day, March 16th, we get the third full-length release from the Pennsylvania metal band, Rivers Of Nihil. They have been building a solid fan base, ever since their debut album in 2013 and now, their new album, "Where Owls Know My Name" features 10-tracks that showcase the enormous growth in the band in only the last five years. The album starts off with the short, atmospheric piece, "Cancer/Moonspeak," which leads into the aggressive attack of "The Silent Life." All of the songs on this new album sound epic, especially the thunderous rhythm of "A Home" and the over 8-minute progressive metal masterpiece "Subtle Change." They finish up their new album with the passionate vocal screams of "Hollow" and slow build-up of "Capricorn/Agoratopia."

Finally we arrive at the latest release from the Brooklyn-based metal band, Eyes Of The Sun. Their new 8-song release titled "Chapter 1" was recorded at Translator Audio studio, which was destroyed, along with the band's equipment, during hurricane Sandy. So, this is a new chapter in the band's ten-year career. The album begins with the raw, aggressive tone of "My War," followed by the slow, dark buzz of "When It Dies," that simply erupts during the chorus. Eyes Of The Sun work in the screaming vocals of "Choke" and the mainstream metal appeal of "Nineteen," before closing out their new album with the emotional burn of "Slavery Of Another Name."
