Horror-themed thrash punk band Blast from Oblivion is proud to premiere their newest single, “Haunted Apparition,” here on HM. Blast from Oblivion is the moniker for solo artist Splatter Guts, and the single comes from their newest album, a sophomore release titled Restrained. (You can jam the debut album in full over at Bandcamp.)

I got in touch with Splatter Guts to talk about the song:

“It screams about someone’s horrific past that still haunts them to insanity. There is nothing left they can do except pray in the middle of this spiritual battle. Musically it is very raw and driving. It speaks for itself.”

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
