Metal Blade Records Trial (swe) announces EP, ‘Sisters of the Moon’; launches video teaser On January 29th, Trial (swe) will release a new 2-track EP, Sisters of the Moon, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of Sisters of the Moon, a video teaser can be viewed at: – where the EP can also be pre-ordered as a 7″ in the following versions: – black vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 222 copies) – gold vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 111 copies) The members of Trial (swe) joined forces in 2007 in Sweden, laying their previous musical endeavors to rest to create something together. Doomed by the restlessness of youth, many songs were written during their humble beginnings, but few withstood the test of time. For two years, Trial (swe) rehearsed, wrote and fought their way through hard times – until finally, in 2009, they found Linus, who was able to unite the band and become the voice of Trial (swe). From then on, their vision became clear. The group released their first demo in 2010 – without money, proper equipment or label – which lead to a record deal for their first full-length, The Primordial Temple (2011). Determined to develop their brand of heavy metal even further, Trial (swe) wrote and recorded the Malicious Arts EP (2013), which became yet another stepping stone from where the band was to where they wanted to be. “That EP, in many ways, became our first road to liberate us from ourselves,” Trial (swe) recalls. “Rising from the ashes of our former selves, we took things further beyond, which ultimately resulted in the album ‘Vessel’.” After earning acclaimed reviews for Vessel (2015), Trial (swe)’s popularity continued to grow, and it wasn’t long before Metal Blade Records signed the band. With plans to re-invent themselves once again, Trial (swe)’s debut for the label proved to be another step forward in their career. They took the colossus that is Motherless (2017) and headed out on the Roadkill tour together with Metal Blade comrades Ram and Portrait to conquer Europe. After the tour, the cold winds of change were blowing. On the other end of the storm, Arthur W. Andersson (ex-Air Raid) stepped forth as the new front-man of the band. Re-energized and fully focused, they entered their new phase. As the curse of the world grew stronger, they decided to reveal their new singer through their EP, Sisters of the Moon. Covers of Fleetwood Mac and Black Sabbath were recorded during the black summer of 2020, displaying new levels of Trial (swe) – traditional yet unconventional. “With ‘Sisters…’, we decided to pay tribute to one of the biggest bands out there, the Mighty Mac. Our version is a different take than the original, filled with blazing guitar duels and piercing vocals. This is a side of Trial (swe) you’ve never heard before,” the band explains. “For our Sabbath cover, it all made sense to record ‘Die Young,'” the band continues, “as it is the most outstanding song on ‘Heaven and Hell’. This one is more true to the original, and we are happy to share both of the songs with you.” Sisters of the Moon track-listing 1. Sisters of the Moon 2. Die Young Trial (swe) line-up: Arthur W.

LIVING DEAD GIRL Exorcizes Emotions in New Lyric Video for Title Track of Upcoming Album
Watch “Exorcism” Now Outburn
Canadian modern metal powerhouse LIVING DEAD GIRL has revealed a new lyric video for the title track from the spring release Exorcism.
Check out the video now via Outburn at
“Exorcism is, essentially, a love song,” says vocalist and LIVING DEAD GIRL leader Molly Rennick. “It’s about being in a relationship where you discover new parts of yourself and let all your ‘evil’ out. It’s a fun, sexy song, but with horror influence and biblical metaphors. The video perfectly shows both sides of that, and the combination of those two worlds IS what my world looks like.”
LIVING DEAD GIRL’s style is a unique combination of Marilyn Manson meets fellow Canadian frontwoman Avril Lavigne, possessing an amalgam of genres including goth, rock, metal, industrial, pop and punk rock. The music perfectly encapsulates Rennick’s personality, which she admits is a dichotomy of “one wears baby pink and Hello Kitty and listens to pop music, and the other a goth girl in fishnet stockings who listens to Marilyn Manson.” The 21-year-old Rennick’s amazing vocal range sees her seamlessly switching from taunting, high-pitched croons, to menacing, harsh barks, to haunting growls with relative ease.
“Alive,” the anthemic first single from Exorcism, was released in October and has received airplay on Toronto’s mainstream rock station 94.9 The Rock, 89.1 Max FM in Barrie, Orilia and the Muskokas, X92.9 Calgary and X100.7 – Red Deer’s Alternative, and is on CBC Radio Canada’s online playlist.

Formed in 2017, LIVING DEAD GIRL has previously released three independent singles and is now set to release a full-length album, Exorcism, also produced Mitchell Marlow. On Exorcism’s 11 banging tracks, Rennick channels her inner “goth girl gone bad” attitude. From the raging, down-tuned riffs of the title track and “Worship Me,” to the infectious, singalong chorus of “Villain,” to the enticing, taunting melodies of “Beautiful” and “Alive,” Rennick commands your full attention.
