Hatebreed's Jasta Talks About More New Music

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story.... 



 

LOS ANGELES, CA - Wednesday, May 18, 2016 - As one reviewer of Hatebreed's just-released The Concrete Confessional put it, "Hatebreed packs so much into the thirteen tracks on 'TCC.'  Nothing is wasted.  Hatebreed still brings the thunder."  Now that the new CD has been released and fans can get deep into every one of those 13 songs, this new track-by-track has the band's Jamey Jasta revealing the stories behind another four gems in the collection.  

"From Grace We've Fallen" is a throw-back to the era when bands combined metal with hardcore before the term "metalcore" had been coined.  It's a true "crossover" song with its apocalyptic lyrics that examine the destruction of values, or morals, of the environment.  

If there's one overall message on this album, it's to get off the computer, put the iPhone or iPad down, quit arguing on Facebook, and have a real conversation with someone, communicate with people in your community, start solving problems on your own.  People are being manipulated by the media to such a degree these days, that we are way too close to the reality of "Us Against Us."

Nostalgia, looking back at another time is a fun thing, but not when it's where you live every day.  "Remember When" asks the question, "if you're too obsessed with the past, how can you be in the present or live in the future?"  The best times are now.

"Slaughter In Their Dreams" gets into the violence perpetrated against children around the world, the innocents who are taught to be suicide bombers, whose lives are degraded and snuffed out before they really get started.  Can humanity come back from this?  Can we progress if this is what's happening with our children?

The Concrete Confessional is now available everywhere, go to  nblast.de/HBConcreteConfessional

Collector Custom Vintage Ecto-Plazm Display Box!

click the above title for the full story...


Ghostbusters collector Aaron Mallia created this amazing tribute piece to the vintage  Kenner toyline.  Check out his explanation below:

"Personally made this using original pieces from the US version box. Had the images restored digitally and printed on photo paper. Custom ordered purple cardboard and used PVA glue to apply the copies. This is the first of 5 that I'm creating. I have to make a few adjustments to the dimensions as the original box can hold 24 cans while this one holds 18. Knowing how rare these are to find I decided to recreate some of these boxes myself. It's been time consuming and costly but I think it's worth it as a collector."
