Casket of Cassandra Debut New Single, “Breathless”

Longtime readers of Wrecked or Bay Area locals should be familiar with Casket of Cassandra. In case you need a reminder, Casket of Cassandra, the female-fronted metalcore outfit from Concord, was featured on our site when they played the Bay Area Metal Fest last summer, put on by our good buddies in Nemesis Records. Well, we take our eyes off these guys for a minute, and Nemesis ends up signing Casket of Cassandra behind our backs. Where’s our record deal, Nemesis? Whatever, any music we’d put together would just be too progressive and too ahead of its time. It’s cool.

Anyway, Nemesis has agreed to let us stream Casket of Cassandra’s new single exclusively on Wrecked for a short period of time. Check it out after the jump.

St. Anger to be Released on Vinyl this June

St. Anger SUCKS

Seriously. The PRP is reporting that metal juggernauts washed-up old farts, Metallica, are going to release the most awfully produced and poorly written album of all time on vinyl on June 7. Honestly, I wouldn’t buy this with a stolen credit card.

Unearth Have A New Album Coming Out

Unearth and Ronnie James Dio

According to Theprp.com, Unearth are set to release their upcoming album, Darkness in the Light, early in July.

In other news, Unearth suck at coming up with album titles. I mean, really… Darkness in the Light? Who do they think they are, Ronnie James Dio? It sounds like the inverse of something he would write.

Do people even still listen to Unearth? I’m still waiting for them to write a new song. Hopefully they will at least keep all of their content original on this one.
