International heavy metal trio Thun will release their self-titled debut album on June 18th through the Eat Lead And Die Music label. The music on this album is an outlet for the stock-pile of new songs that Jon Higgs (Monsterworks) has been creating during the pandemic. Jon has brought along fellow Monsterworks band-mate Hugo Wilkinson to join him on bass, along with Gargoyle drummer James Knoerl. The seven song release begins with the nearly nine-minute epic title track "Thun," which slowly pounds its way through, with growling vocals and buzzing guitar riffs. The energy picks up with the high-powered attack of "Cage Within A Cage" and the aggression of "Intertwined Collective Fate," which proudly showcases the full power of this newly assembled band. Thun close out the album with the short, gentle instrumental interlude "Momentary Truce," before finishing with the doom metal grind of "Gaiacide."

Back in May, Knoxville rockers, Count Pariah released a short, four-song self-titled EP through Pavement Entertainment. It features input from each of the band members, as they bring their influences to each of these new songs, beginning with the thunderous rhythm of "Feed Em To The Fire," which also showcases some of the band's melodic side. Count Pariah can pretty much release any of the songs from this new EP and have an instant impact on modern rock radio, including the adrenaline fueled "Possession" and the addictive chorus of "Feel It All Night."
