serenI have explained my mission with this post week after week as far as exposing new bands on this blog, but I have a new mission. I have a music video show called The Monster Hour that I am looking to bring online and I want to do it with unsigned bands who deserve the exposure. I’ll have more information up soon as far as that is concerned. Right now, we need to get back to the bands and this week are leaving Seattle and we are heading to the Mile High city Denver, Co to check out the band Seren. Seren is a Progressive Death Metal band that recently just released their second full length effort in Ashes. The song that I chose to check out from the new album is the track Ancestral Ghost which is an epic 10 minutes long, but it showcases exactly what the band can do with all the tempo changes and the intricate changes in the music which leads us on a musical odyssey. If you are prepared to go on this epic journey, then I suggest you check out the album which can be found on the band’s Bandcamp page and you can like their Facebook page as well. These guys are great musicians and they deserve the listen.

Music Bowl 50 MatchupThis is the second time that we are doing the Musicbowl here on Moshpits and Movies, but we just call it Musicbowl 50 to go along with the Superbowl. Superbowl 50 is tonight which means that the Carolina Panthers are taking on the Denver Broncos with one team hoping to taste glory for the first time while the other wants to be on top of the mountain one more time. For this years edition of Musicbowl 50, we are changing it up a little by selecting a band from each teams area. We are pinning them together and you will vote as to who the winner of Musicbowl 50 is going to be. On one end, we have a legendary southern metal/crossover thrash/stoner metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina in Corrosion Of Conformity. In the other corner we have a legendary power metal outfit from Colorado Springs, Colorado in Jag Panzer. Both bands have been around for a very long time, but only one can be winner of Musicbowl 50. Both of the bands have endured lineup changes over the years, but both have spawned some legendary guitarist like Pepper Kennan (C.O.C.) and Chris Broderick (ex-Jag Panzer, ex-Megadeth). Who are you going to vote for? You have until the start of the 4th quarter of the Superbowl game to decide.
