Postby bittermelodyrecs » Tue Sep 15, 2015 8:54 pm

We are pretty excited about this one. A split EP from Down In It from Wilmington, NC and No Restraint from Jacksonville, FL. More info will be coming soon along with the artwork. The masters have been sent off to the plant and we will keep you updated. Follow the Bitter Melody Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay in the loop.

You can stream the first track / video from Down In It at the link below.

DOWN IN IT

Stream “Heresy”, the first track off the split 7” with No Restraint here -http://www.metalinjection.net/video/down-in-it-heresy-is-new-music-to-mosh-to

From Wilmington, NC, DOWN IN IT is another shining example in the current wave of abrasive metalcore that is flooding the heavy music scene. Despite being freshly new to the game, forming only in February 2014, the five-piece has made their mark and continues to turn heads as they look to release “Humanity Has Failed”, a split 7” with Jacksonville, FL powerhouse NO RESTRAINT.

The split was recorded with Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, Despised Icon, Haste The Day) in Richmond, VA. Despite their side only consisting of 3 songs, there was absolutely no room for filler. Taking influence from the more metal side of metalcore like Martyr A.D. and Zao, while adding the more in-your-face style that Turmoil and One King Down made popular, allow Down In It to stand on their own while also giving them room to grow musically. Lyrically, the band hones in on a lot of topics that are extremely important and prominent in current day discussion, such as animal rights, depression, religion, and gender binaries. Andreas’ touch is obvious as well with drums that cut through the mix, and a thick but gritty guitar and bass tone that gives the recording an atmosphere that matches the potency of what this band stands for.

“Humanity Has Failed” will see a release via Bitter Melody Records, and will be celebrated at Southern Ties Fest in the band’s hometown of Wilmington this November. In the meantime, the band has plans to hit the road this September with Old Wounds (Good Fight Music) for a short run to Don’t Call It A Fest along side the likes of Eyehategod, See You Next Tuesday, In Cold Blood, and many others.

We still have copies of No Restraint's first EP on cassette in the store. We did a cassette for DII's first demo and EP but it's now sold out.

Thanks Troy ^ Beat me to it.

Also, Preorders for the down in it. / No Restraint split 7" launch on HALLOWEEN. All orders placed on that day (10/31) for this will get special, numbered Halloween themed cover art (in addition to the regular art) and maybe some other goodies. 300 are on color vinyl, IF we get different colors (they may all be the same color, we don't know) then folks who preorder will get the most limited versions. Preorders will ship when the vinyl arrives, it shouldn't be too long as the covers are in transit to us and the tests have already been approved. Anything else ordered with this will ship with this 7" when they arrive.

Update on Down In It. They have a new record coming out on Good Fight next year.

We made a rad new enamel pin for Down In It. It comes packaged and #'d out of 100. They are green and white enamel with a glow in the dark enamel on top. Iron struck wizard rap pins with one military clutch on the back. 1.5 inches tall. They look rad in person.

I also have a bundle where you can add the split 7" for 4 dollars to a pin order or you can add a Bitter Melody enamel pin for 4 bucks extra (or both for 8). They all come with a free DII sticker too. Thanks!
