“Greensleeves” by A Tragic Setback

Artist: A Tragic Setback
Title: “Greensleeves”
Label: 12/22/2014
Release Date:
Genre: Christmas Metal
Rating: 4.5/5

Just the other day I posted a Christmas cover by the band Edge Of Paradise which properly prepared me for the annual holiday experience of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra who I see each and every year around this time. Upon arriving home I was filled with the generous holiday spirit and was pleased as some quality spiked punch to find an email about yet another free Christmas tune being delivered to the Metal masses and this time it comes from the band A Tragic Setback who delivers a throttling rendition of “Greensleeves”. Now historically speaking this song has been around since the 1500’s and I am positive that you have heard its melodies over the years in some form or another. It was associated with Christmas in late 1600 and I must thank Wikipedia for the quick history lesson about that since I only knew that the song was rather old.

Bring On The “March Metal Madness”

Outside of referencing the term for shows or events that I have gone to during the month of March, I’ve never really called all that much attention to “March Metal Madness”……and maybe that is due for a change. What I will do is call your attention to all of the free Metal music that was given some attention on both the core website and our blog which you are reading this post in, and hope that you will take advantage of them all and perhaps even share what you find with your friends.

Scion A/V sez Shut Off The Light & Enjoy “Pitch Black” by Meshuggah

I’ve been trying to keep on top of when Scion A/V dishes out some free downloadable Metal for the masses and so far I’ve directed readers to these offerings with about a handful of postings right here on the PiercingMetal Blog. It’s been great to find them calling our attention to free music by Immolation, Enslaved, The Melvins, Arsis and Wormrot. Let’s face it, the economy sucks and prices are still going up so why not indulge in something free whenever it is possible. That being said the next free EP from Scion A/V gives the mighty Meshuggah a go round by giving fans two unreleased tracks by the band. Okay so perhaps two tracks seems kind of a bummer, but its still free and its still Meshuggah and most of that bands fans will take anything that they can get from them. The first track is a studio cut called, of all things, “Pitch Black” (hence the name of the EP) and its pretty solid and representative of what we expect from the group. The second cut is “Dancers To A Discordant System” which is recorded live. This track originally hails from the bands 2008 release “Obzen”. Clicking the album cover below will take you over to Scion A/V where you can download these tunes legally. How cool is that.

Scion A/V Presents: Arsis’ “Lepers Caress”

The current state of the economy finds me always loving when the fine folks at Scion A/V offer up The Metal Republic some free, and really cool Metal to help enhance not only their collections but their overall appreciation and curiosity about a bands body of work. The newest free EP delivers you six tracks from the incredibly blazing Arsis. You know the band I am speaking about, the ferocious Technical Death Metal group from Yorktown, VA that is the brainchild of James Malone. I’ve enjoyed their stuff on recording and in the live sense for a few years now so I was very happy to find them being featured on one of these free EP’s. If this is your first go at the band then you are in for a treat (especially if you someone who goes crazy for technical guitar and drum wizardry). Arsis does it right and that is the best way I can describe it to you. The EP is entitled “Lepers Caress” and you can download all five songs into your collection by clicking the album art just below. Go, go, go…

This free EP download could not have come at a better time because we are hours away from the band heading out as direct support for the mighty Sonata Arctica. Talk about a double dose punch of musical power. Do yourself a favor Metal fans and be sure to attend one of these shows. I know that I will be there at the NYC appearance in Gramercy Theatre for sure and a review will make it to these pages as soon as is humanly possible. Stay tuned for that.
