Los Angeles Death Metal Veterans, Letum Ascensus are back with the highly anticipated sophomore offering, ‘Wasteland Chronicles’

"'Wasteland Chronicles' was the product of the efforts of a local band that stayed clear of quitting or fading away into nothing", states vocalist Boris Bonillo. " Whether they be financially, emotionally or structurally, the general repression of the underground scene fails to drive Letum Ascensus away.

The tracks were recorded at some point only to be destroyed. After a few years we realized that these tracks had to be exposed to a bigger audience because of the amazing response from our local and even international supporters.

It would never have been possible without the support of our families, friends, fans and everyone involved. This is for you."

Nearly 10 years since their previous release, Letum Ascensus has risen from their graceless slumber, to spawn an immaculate sonic assault. Sticking to their roots, ‘Wasteland Chronicles’ offers 7 new hymns of Untainted Chaotic Death Metal.

Featuring album art by Rafael Mattey, 'Wasteland Chronicles' was recorded by Tom Dickey at Real Tone Studios, Mixed by Nick Viterelly & Raymond Herrera, and Mastered by Alex Crescioni at Stygian Sound, in Los Angeles, CA

"Wasteland Chronicles" is set for release November 2, 2018 on Gore House Productions.

Metal go getters MURKOCET have got an all new EP titled "Epidemic" with an accompanying single "Rule the Night", leading the way! The band goes into discussion about this single and the EP as well as further plans that stand before them.

1. Would you please introduce your band to our readers who are not aware of your band and music?

The name of our band is Murkocet. We are a 4 piece American metal style band from Phoenix, AZ.

2. Give us a little insight into the formation of the band. When and how did it happen?

The band has been around since roughly 2013.  It started as a three piece group trying to make some heavy music and it progressed from there into what it is today.

3. At what age did you guys start playing instruments? Since when are you into metal music?

We all started playing when we were younger, and we've all been into metal for as long as we can remember music.

4. So you recently released your EP "Epidemic", can you tell us about it, take us through the tracks and the lyrics as well, what is the meaning behind it all?

Epidemic is meant to bring along 5 songs and allow our audience to know that it is the beginning of something much greater (the album coming next).  It doesn't have much lyrical meaning past the title of the EP.  Spiders is about people taking advantage of you and you knowing it but allowing it to happen. (Toxic relationships) Hustlin' Hate is our banger to describe what we do. Rule the Night is about us ruling the night, which is also a song dedicated to our friend's clothing company called "The Best" in which their slogan is "Rule the Night". Fleeting is a song that is used to explain how we sacrifice a lot of our time with our friends and loved ones to chase our dream of music. Burn After Listening is the song to everyone who has something negative to say about us, they will continue to watch us rise and inso facto, burn after listening.

5. How would  you say that this EP "Epidemic", plays against your debut album "Digging Mercy's Grave"?

It plays smoothly as the next piece, showing solid growth musically from the band. The overall sound, musical structuring and technicality has taken a dramatic jump.

6. Can you disclose the details behind the video of the track "Rule The Night", for us?

The video is a first person account of a fan that goes to hang out with us for his own VIP experience, where he watches us unleash a "strip club massacre".  He then has to die, no witnesses.

7. Will this EP see any other tracks receive this same treatment like "Rule The Night", as far as single releases go?


8. Which bands/ artists do you draw your influences from?

Lamb of God, Slipknot, Parkway Drive, Bleeding Through, After the Burial, a bunch more.

9. What do your songs tend to cover with so many topics out there?

The events that should empower someone, things that most people go through that cause stress and frustration that also show the listener or character within the songs overcoming those events through aggression or violence.  They're songs meant to empower.

10. Where does a name like Murkocet come from and even mean for you as a whole?

Richie made it up for his Xbox live name a long time ago. It is now "a substance directly attributed to the aggressive and often times violent actions of its user."

11. Whilst this EP has been out for a while, does the band have any new music already in the works?


12. When can we expect to see the band play some shows or go off on tour?

Everything starts October 13th 2018!

13. How else does Murkocet plan to end off 2018 for this year?

Keep writing more and more of the new album, and sell a grip of merch to prepare for the recording process again.

Multi-genre based act THE FROST consists of LeahBeth Evans/lead vocals and Christian Gratz/Guitar/piano. Together this duo does what makes them happy, making and playing music, but happiest when others enjoy it! With that said, this duo got together to talk about their music and being so happy go lucky doing what they do!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The Frost consists of two members. LeahBeth Evans and Christian Gratz. We started as a cocktail duo back in 2015. Prior to that, Leah had a career as a jazz singer, and Christian was a featured guitarist for many shows including shows with Three Dog Night, The Grass Roots, The Stylistics and more.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Leah: It’s funny. When Chris and I met, I was really into the movie frozen, which inspired us to form the name “The Frost.”

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based out of Scranton/Eynon Pennsylvania, United States. The music scene is hopping. Most venues have music at least twice a week. Sometimes, every night of the week. Our friends project 90’s are a pretty cool local band worth checking out! There’s so many others we could name too.

4. How would you describe your style?

We consider ourselves multi-genre. The last two singles we released were Country and southern rock. We’re going into the studio tomorrow to record a pop/disco tune. Our style is whatever Music we feel like playing and creating.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far we have only released two singles. They are vastly different. From our first single, "Be Ok", you can expect a relatable heartbroken feeling. If you’be been broken up with or ghosted before. You’ll find this song relatable.

Our newest release, "Gotta Live Fast", is completely opposite. It’s fun and upbeat. You can expect to tap your foot to this one. We went for an "outlaw" sound on this song. We wanted to write a country song different from others but try to keep a traditional sound to it.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

He’s we do. We are constantly writing and will be going into the studio tomorrow. This song will be very different from our last two. Plan to hear a pop-nu disco tune from The Frost!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We are very fortunate to live in an area where music business is booming. We have not toured out of the country yet, but we play a minimum 8 shows a month year round. You can catch us often in the tri state area.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We hope to keep growing and improving, and continue to keep our audiences happy!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
