Fire From The Gods Release Official Music Video for "The Voiceless" off of Upcoming 'Narrative Retold'

Hardcore Metal band Fire From The Gods has released their Ramon Boutviseth directed Official Music Video for "The Voiceless." Produced by Jonathan Davis (KORN), "The Voiceless" is off of their upcoming full length album, Narrative Retold, due out May 19th via Rise Records.

“The Voiceless is referring to the callousness of society. This generation is exposed to so many shocking and graphic events. No one seems to bat an eye. There is no compassion or care for one's fellow man. Violence towards each other is a normal occurrence factored into our lives these days. Speaking up about it is nothing new, but it needs to be said. Yes, the world will keep spinning, and life does go on, but we need to slow down and smell the fucking roses once in a while." - AJ Channer Click HERE To Pre-Order 'Narrative Retold' Check out our coverage of Fire From The Gods from Knotfest 2015:

If you haven't sat down to listen to Final Drive's latest album "Dig Deeper" you’re missing some of the best Southern Groove Thrash Metal that has ever come out of St. Louis, Missouri. Jordan Gaw has just the right anger and aggression with his screams and growls that every Thrash Metal fan is used to, making your fist go in the air. Nathan Easter makes his Flying V talk with all the fast and heavy riffs featuring screeching solos you would expect in any Southern Metal music. Good thing there’s a rhythm section like Alex Wheeler on drums and Ray Tucker on bass to keep your head banging and hair moving. "Dig Deeper" is their 5th studio album and it came out on February, 3rd 2017, in that short two months they seemed to do the impossible. They got all the attention they deserve with a 100% independently funded album that started with an idea and a campaign on Kickstarter. Since then Final Drive has crushed more than a handful of charts …


FELLOW BEASTS!  Getting back and recovering from Texas Independence Fest yesterday at the Come And Take It Live (Formerly Grizzly Hall).  Met up with the guys from Oh Sleeper and have a gallery from this amazing band.  A full day of Metal with a phenomenal lineup that I cannot wait to relive in photographic form with you.  For now, I give you OH SLEEPER!
