New Releases: The Chariot, The Devil Wears Prada, Earth Crisis, Isis, SWWAATS
|The Chariot - 'Wars And Rumors Of Wars' - Solid State
With the followup from their former release 'The Fiancee', Solid State's The Chariot hurls back into action with a new full length that brings the grit of hardcore, a dash of their DIY punk style and the all too familiar Chariot sound wrapped in one. Plus, as they're currently on the road with Prosthetic's Gojira, you can see for yourself their energetic, rapid pace live performance of the new album.

|The Devil Wears Prada - 'With Roots Above And Branches Below' - Ferret
With fierce, aggressive riffs flowing into melodic synth sounds, The Devil Wears Prada stands above being just the name of some book and movie. The name now correllates to the Dayton, OH ensenemble and their forthcoming release. For those Bamboozle and Warped Tour fans this is a must buy album.

|Earth Crisis - 'To The Death' - Century Media
Undeniably, Earth Crisis is a name that is immediately recognized by the hardcore community. So it's no surprise that in teaming up with Century Media on this release, 'To The Death' will serve as a reminder that hardcore has never drifted or faltered, but moreso that these hardcore legends have another "firestorm to purify."

|Isis - 'Wavering Radiant' - Ipecac
I can honestly say that Isis is one of the few bands that can evoke human emotions throughout their music clearly without being "emo". For fans of Pelican, Red Sparowes, and any band of the psychadelic / experimental genre, the band's fifth studio release is not just good, but great. Hitting stores this week, don't miss out on purchasing this.

|Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky - 'The Grand Partition And The Abrogation Of Idolatry' - Nuclear Blast
Winning the Noisecreep award for the world's longest band name and album title to date, the band is immediately redeemed upon the first listen. Taking key elements of both death metal and grindcore are quite the feat but the Tampa, Florida sextet manages to do so with finesse and precision in their musicianship. Joining the ranks with Abigail Williams this year on the Conquer and Curse tour, this will be a band to check out and an album to purchase as well.
