Stream of the Week – Whose Hearts Were His


This week’s Stream of the Week hails from Kansas City, Missouri.  Gabe Fry is the brain behind Whose Hearts Were His – his new solo project.  He was formerly part of Solace and Stable, a band we featured here on A Metal State of Mind a couple of years ago.  If you would like to check that project out as well, you can click here.  The new self-titled album is set for release in the near future – not date indicated just yet, but if I am supplied one I will let you know.  For now you can check out this track, Tongues Like Knives, to water your mouths for more of what’s to come.

For fans of:  Gojira, Between The Buried and Me, The Red Chord

Stream of the Week: A Vulgar Picture


a1852407047_2The Stream of the Week is coming from the humble city of Swansea…a little place by the sea and Wales, UK.  A Vulgar Picture is the name of the game and on 25 Oct 2013 they released their debut album, The World I Found.  They have a knack for combining the brutal and often beautiful elements of both thrash and death metal.  Therefore, it goes without saying that “I” would do this one for the stream of the week.  The quickest way to my heart is through the use of guttural vocals, melodic solos, and brutal melodies.  Score!  Check it out!
