LACUNA COIL has spent the past year touring the world in support of their new album, Dark Adrenaline, and is spending the first quarter of 2013 on the road with SEVENDUST and COAL CHAMBER in North America. Released in January 2012 via Century Media Records, the album debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, sold nearly 20,000 units in its first week, and spawned the crushing first single, “Trip The Darkness.”
PINKISH BLACK has finished recording their upcoming album and Century Media debut, set tentatively for a spring release. Featuring no stringed instruments, the duo relies on aura and raw emotions to obtain their unique heaviness.
Hailing from the small town of Plaistow, New Hampshire, VATTNET VISKAR is anything but small. Formed in the fall of 2010, the band has quickly risen amongst the ranks of US black metal acts with their self-titled EP, which was named one of the best metal albums of 2012 by Pitchfork.com, Stereogum.com, and countless others.
