May 16, 2023 – Denver, CO based metal musician and front-man JASON NEIL, formerly of Arcanium, has brought together a new cast of some of the most creative characters with his newest heavy rock band, MIND INCISION! Formed in September 2022, MIND INCISION also includes lead guitarist JON MAGGARD, bassist AEON CRUZ (MOTOGRATER), rhythm guitarist KYLE LOUCKS, and drummer KELLY MORSE, making them a “super group” of some of the best independent metal talent!
I did some really sweet tours with Arcanium over the 5 or 6 years we toured. Bullet For My Valentine, Butcher Babies, Ill Nino, Otep, and Machine Head were amongst some of the funnest.
What’s cool is the very first tour I scored as the vocalist of Arcanium, was with Megadeth. I grew up listening to Megadeth and was completely floored that Dave Mustaine had hand picked us for their tour.
The difference between Mind Incision and Arcanium for me is that the band writes music that is diverse. There is slow melodic tones and riffs, and also chunky driving powerhouse riffs. So the album came out great!
We’re currently seeking tours and have a couple offers on the table, as well as generated some industry professional interest since coming back to the scene with Mind Incision. I think this band is going to take off. We’re not here to fuck around and party. We are here to get out there and do some incredible things with the music we are creating for some good causes as well as for the fans, and if you liked I first 3 singles, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
“‘Zero230’ is inspired by soldiers who are suffering from PTSD or anyone that knows someone who is or has suffered in the past. In this song we talk about how a soldier wakes up in the middle of the night from dreams that take him back to the war and how it affects his/her everyday life. With no actual way to get rid of it. If you know someone that is suffering from PTSD please get them the help they need by sharing these links and phone numbers below.” – MIND INCISION
MIND INCISION IS:
Jason Neil – Lead Vocals
Jon Maggard – Lead Guitar
Kyle Loucks – rhythm Guitar

January 27, 2023 – London based, alternative rock artist CHAIDURA has released the official music video for his newest single, “With You.” Written & performed by the artist, “With You” was directed by CLARE CHONG.
Sonically, with you is a blend of electronic, emo and metal compiled into one unique product. The song begins with an arpeggiated synth that builds up to the cathartic main riff that is full of emotion and heart.
“Through heart to heart conversations with my fans, I realize that life is getting more and more difficult these days for all of us. We are all struggling to survive and I share and feel all your pain. “With You” is a dedication to my fans who is going through a tough time and I want you to know that I’m with you” – CHAIDURA
