November's Album Spotlight
Wake by For Today is in the album spotlight for November. The sixth studio long player from the Sioux City, Iowa-based Christian metalcore unit, Wake is For Today's first release for Nuclear Blast. Explosive, punishing, and emotionally and spiritually charged, the 12-track album arrives two years after 2014's Razor & Tie-issued Fight the Silence, which saw the band achieve their highest chart performance to date. Wake also sees the departure of rhythm guitarist Sam Penner and the arrival of new ax-slinger Jim Hughes.
November's Indie Spotlight
Vultures by Disciple is in the indie spotlight for November. Vultures is the third extended play from Disciple. They released the EP on September 25, 2015, independently. The new EP features six songs that were cut from their 2014 release, Attack. The EP was a surprise release as the band did not announce it until the day before it's release. The album features six songs that didn't thematically fit with the rest of the songs on Attack but that the band still felt were equally strong. The EP title comes from the concept of scavenging from leftover songs to create something new.
