SBRUCranked. Heavy. Melodic. These are just some of the words that have been used to describe Toronto’s BREACHED. Creating an alluring blend of melodious, metal-tinged rock ‘n roll, it didn’t take long for Breached to start winning over fans with their live shows and 2011's five-song self titled EP. The band’s tight harmonies and nail-hitting screams combined with overdriven guitars, intricate tempos and powerful lyrics provide a unique blend that audiences can’t seem to get enough of. To satisfy that appetite Breached are proud to release their follow up acoustic EP titled 'Revolution Sessions' out today, Tuesday, March 26, which features five unplugged tracks, four originals along with a cover of Alice In Chains song 'No Excuses'.

Revolution Sessions - Track Listing
1. Let Go
2. Control
3. Happy?
4. Time
5. No Excuses

Irish extreme metallers CHOSEN are exclusively streaming their new album 'Resolution' on CraveOnline.com at the following link here. The debut album is set for official release on Saturday, March 30th as a FREE DOWNLOAD on their official website www.chosen.ie along with it being available on CD in two special editions.

Produced by Alwyn Walker, 'Resolution' is a reflection of sheer perseverance and innovation, brimming with top-notch musicianship, well-crafted arrangements and inventive hooks. Merged with a rich audio production value, void of the sterile, homogeneous and plastic instrumentation factor, which currently dominates the commercial metal market, this debut album from one of Ireland’s noteworthy metal bands is a truly refreshing piece of work.
