Metal Blade Records have excitedly announced the signing of a worldwide deal with Nonpoint, thus meaning that Metal Blade will not only act as the label home for the band worldwide but as a partner to the band’s label in North America as well. Since their debut album, Statement, was unleashed on the world, Nonpoint have done nothing but prove, record after record, they can still dominate stages and radio airwaves everywhere. Their most current “self-titled” release was their most critically-acclaimed and landed them their two highest charting singles. Now, with their recent signing to label powerhouse, Metal Blade Records, they are making the biggest statement of their careers. Elias Soriano, the band’s vocalist, comments:

This is a dream situation for us. Just getting an offer from Metal Blade. We’ve always needed a team behind us outside of the U.S. It’s a great feeling knowing you now have the best team possible.

Drummer Robb Rivera comments:

We are excited to not only get THE worldwide label of labels to release our album outside of the US, but to be part of a family now that has pretty much set the bar for metal releases for 30 plus years. Needless to say, extremely excited to be able to get our music to the fans outside of the US through the team that helped launch Metallica.

Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records adds:

All of us at Metal Blade are happy to welcome Nonpoint to the Metal Blade family. We are excited to work with them and the bit of new material I heard sounds great!

Taproot has released a music video for The Everlasting from theirsixth studio album The Episodes(due for release in October). Watch the video exclusively through VEVO here.


The Everlasting is an ongoing story from Taproot’sprevious music video No Surrender that follows a younger version of the same character. The character in The Everlasting is waking up in a safe environment and wants to venture into the hellish world outside, where as in the previous music video it was an opposite scenario. Both videos have the characters heading to the park where they share fond memories. Watch The Everlasting and No Surrender side by side and notice the cinematic elements that are fused together to create a timeless storyline with lifelong memories. It’s easy, it’s beautiful, it’s simple, “The Everlasting”.
