NO USE FOR A NAME
Ohmylordee, have you heard of Bay Area noise-prog-metallers Name? Most likely you have, as they’ve been around for a few years and are signed to Lifeforce Records. Whether you have or haven’t isn’t the issue… it’s that they’ve got a new album coming out in about a month and you ought to pay attention.
The cover art and track listing for Name’s new album Internet Killed The Audio Star have surfaced, along with a tracklisting and two brand new songs on Name’s MySpace. Name are cut from the same sonic cloth as Converge and The Dillinger Escape Plan but I’d say they verge a bit closer to traditional metal and more wholly endorse Prog with a capital “P.” There’s plenty of raw motherfucking aggression but no tough-guy hardcore posing and no spazz-outs that are basically un-followable. I’d wager that a whole lot more folks would know about this excellent band if not for their awkward and un-Google-able band name moniker.
Internet Killed the Audio Star will be released on February 16th in the US and April 19th in Europe. Listen to two tracks from that album pronto, then come back here and let us know what you think.
