Defeater "Dear Father" 2011

Yesterday marked the release of Defeater's "Dear Father" EP. It previews their upcoming full length, "Empty Days & Sleepless Nights". From what the information I found on Bridge Nine's website, "Empty Days & Sleepless Nights" is going to be 10 of the heavy hardcore tracks that Defeater is becoming known for, as well as 4 acoustic tracks.

This whole EP carries on the narrative style of Defeater's other releases. It's difficult for me to say which song I like more. The styles are drastically different. "Dear Father" is the heavier of the two tracks, but the story doesn't get lost in needless guitar riffs or breakdowns. "I Don't Mind" is one of the acoustic tracks, and it's amazing. It's a complete change of pace from "Dear Father", and it works well. The storytelling in both of these tracks is fantastic, and I'm seriously eager for the release of "Empty Days & Sleepless Nights" on March 8th.

Track Listing:
1) Dear Father
2) I Don't Mind

Madball "All or Nothing" Video Premiere

Last week I saw that BlacknBlue Productions posted Madball's new video for their song "All or Nothing" off of Empire. I didn't have a chance to actually watch it until today, and I'm glad I did. "All or Nothing" was definitely one of my favorite songs on the album, and the video doesn't disappoint. Michael Distelkamp and Freddy Madball did a fantastic job with the direction, and the video fits the song perfectly. Vinnie Stigma makes a cameo appearance that works very well. You should definitely check it out.
