Clifton, New Jersey-based melodic metal outfit JULIUS SEIZURE— propelled by the re-joining of original vocalist Yosef El— are pleased to announce the release of their brand new tracks ‘Sixth and Falling’ and ‘Second Coming’, today via MetalInsider.net! The tracks are cut from their August 2013 release, Trials. Check out the featured Unsigned and Streamed feature here, exclusively via MetalInsider.net.
“‘Sixth and Falling’ really encapsulates what JULIUS SEIZURE is all about,” states guitarist Anthony Smeragliuolo. “Our songs have something for everyone, and this is the epitome of that concept. It's got memorable, catchy hooks, both vocally and instrumentally, while maintaining the heaviness that defines us. The arrangement of this song is what stands out to me. It's got speed, brutality, groove, and melody in a dynamic three and a half minute package."
Formed in November 2011, JULIUS SEIZURE strives to achieve the perfect balance between melody and brutality, with a sound that is wildly unpredictable yet carefully crafted. Comprised of the former members of some of New Jersey's most popular unsigned metal bands including Will Killmore, Simensis, and The Annealing, founding members Steve Toth (Guitars), Anthony Smeragliuolo (Guitars), Brian Daniell (Bass), and Kyle Wilson (Drums) quickly got to work on their debut EP Beware the Ides of March, which released in June 2012.
Produced by guitarist Steve Toth at the band's own studio, Beware the Ides of March was met with much critical acclaim and JULIUS SEIZURE quickly generated a devoted fan base with multiple U.S. tours in summer 2012. The debut single ‘Oxy(Generation)’ and music video, directed by guitarist Anthony Smeragliuolo, received extensive airplay via Sirius/XM Liquid Metal, WSOU, and many blogs, websites, and social media based features. Their 2013 follow up, the aforementioned Trials EP, met similar positive reviews and popularity.
The band has a packed schedule for 2014 with a constant outpour of new music, videos, and shows, including a stop at this year’s New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on Thursday, April 17, 2014. JULIUS SEIZURE has established itself as a leader of the New Jersey metal scene, and 2014 will see the band achieve a new level of excellence.
