CHRIS BAY News : Album solo en marge de Freedom CallDe Xavier le 12/11/2017 à 12:47




Soloalbum from the FREEDOM CALL singer/guitar player coming in February 2018 - => First single out December 01st, 2017

It’s a well-known predicament that the Freedom Call founder and frontman shares with many other composers: occasionally, his wealth of inspiration goes beyond the stylistic and thematic scope of his own band. “I permanently write songs and am constantly working on ideas in the studio,” he explains. “That’s why I’ve collected a whole lot of tracks over the years that on the one hand don’t really suit Freedom Call and on the other are just too good to gather dust in my archive.” The solution to his “luxury” problem: 23 February 2018 will see the release of Chris Bay’s first solo album Chasing The Sun on Steamhammer/SPV, committing himself in his very own, unmistakable way to the music that has inspired him since the very early days of his career. And although the songs on the album were created over a long period of time, Bay produced the whole material in spring 2017 at his own studio.

Which must be one of the reasons why Chasing The Sun – despite the diversity of the individual tracks – sounds all of a piece. Alongside a number of rock songs in characteristic Chris Bay style, he has skilfully blended in modern sound elements on the opening track ´Flying Hearts`, added Wurlitzer piano touches, which bring to mind the currently trendy 1970s, on ´Hollywood Dancer` and risked a song with a slow shuffle groove, a consciously dark atmosphere and an avant-garde flair in ´Where Waters Flow In Heaven`.

In stark contrast to this is the first single release 'Radio Starlight' with its obvious airplay potential, which will be released digitally on 01 December 2017 and to which there will be also a video clip, which triggers with tantalizing images wanderlust and will definitely makes you hungry for more.

This title once again underscores the boundless ease with which Chris Bay moves in his world of music. As the album title "Chasing the Sun" already suggests, Chris Bay casually processed the desires and wishes that probably each of us holds in this dark season.. sun, freedom, warmth and harmony ... a "summer hit" in winter, a matter of interpretation.

On Monday, Nov. 6th, Shining's Jørgen Munkeby was awarded the Norwegian Rolf Gammleng Honorary Award for his work in music throughout the years. The award was given out by Fond For Utøvende Kunstnere (Fund For Performing Artists) in the class "Jazz/metal/improv".

Jørgen comments, with his typical grin: "This is my first lifetime achievement-type prize, and I'm super happy to see that my artistic calling and never-ending quest for musical excellence has been noticed. But then again, I can't imagine there was any notable competition in the class of jazz/metal/improv to speak of."

During the award speech Munkeby informed the audience and invited artists that the 50k NOK (6200 USD) price money will go towards an eye surgery.

"Every time I go out on tour, I check my XL spreadsheet where I have all the items I need to pack for a tour, based upon how many days I'm away. Two of the lines are contact lenses for main suitcase and for carryon. I can't wait to delete those two pesky lines from the spreadsheet!" Munkeby notes

Herman Rarebell De Xavier le 06/11/2017 à 19:53

Herman Rarebell
En parlant des SCORPIONS
Préface : Dieter Dierks
Sortie le 20 Novembre 2017



L'autobiographie du batteur-culte des Scorpions enfin traduite en français !
Par Guillaume Gaguet, auteur de la biographie des Scorpions saluée par les fans et la critique
« 50 Ans Dans l'Oeil du Cyclone ».
---
Le mot du traducteur :
Herman Rarebell a été le batteur des Scorpions entre 1977 et 1995, ce qui correspond globalement à l'âge d'or commercial du groupe. De là à dire que le succès du groupe est lié à la présence d'Herman, il n'y a qu'un pas que le batteur n'hésite pas à franchir dans son autobiographie, qui retrace l'intégralité de son parcours. Il faut dire que Herman a dès le début été plus qu'un simple exécutant, puisqu'il a pris part à l'écriture et à la composition de plusieurs dizaines de morceaux pour les Scorpions.
Très tôt, Herman a apporté une touche de légèreté dans la musique des Scorpions, en proposant des paroles crues, très orientées sur la libido, alors que les paroles de Klaus Meine étaient plutôt empreintes d'un certain amour courtois. Pour Herman, pas de romantisme, c'était sex, drugs et rock'n'roll, et il partage dans son autobiographie énormément d'anecdotes concernant le sexe et l'usage des stupéfiants.. Herman est un hédoniste dont le comportement s'accorde parfaitement avec l'énergie débridée des années 80.
Dans son livre, Herman traite de tous les sujets. De son enfance en Allemagne de l'ouest jusqu'aux événements les plus récents de sa carrière, en passant bien sûr par ses 18 années passées au sein des Scorpions, qui sont illustrés par de nombreuses anecdotes. Herman a réussi à préserver sa candeur originelle, l'énergie de ses débuts, même si le livre est empreint d'un certain réalisme
parfois désabusé. On y trouve également des réflexions fournies sur l'amour, le succès ou l'absence de succès, et sur les méandres qui peuvent amener un jeune musicien à sombrer dans l'alcoolisme et la drogue. C'est un témoignage drôle et émaillé de nombreux traits d'esprit, car Herman est bourré d'humour, mais aussi très touchant et empli de sagesse.
J'espère que les amateurs de la musique de Scorpions et de hard rock en général prendront autant de plaisir à lire cet ouvrage que j'en ai eu à le traduire. J'ai la chance d'être intime avec Herman depuis plus de 10 ans maintenant, et il est vraiment très heureux que son autobiographie connaisse une nouvelle vie sur le territoire français. En Parlant Des Scorpions c'est l'histoire d'un groupe, c'est aussi l'histoire d'un homme, mais c'est en substance l'histoire du rock, et de la victoire du culot et du talent face à l'adversité.
---
Le quatrième de couverture :
Comme un outsider dépassant ses adversaires, les Scorpions ont, contre toute attente, fini par atteindre les sommets. À la fin des années 70, ils ont quitté le relatif anonymat de leur ville de Hanovre en Allemagne pour trôner sur le royaume du rock'n'roll.
Herman Rarebell, surnommé Herman « Ze German », y a pris toute sa part. Plus qu'un simple batteur, l'écriture inspirée et imaginative de Herman était l'ingrédient-clé et le chaînon manquant qui a permis au groupe de percer alors que les prétendus « connaisseurs » ne croyaient pas un seul instant en ses chances de réussite.
Dieter Dierks, producteur de longue date des Scorpions, dit de lui :
Au-delà d’un simple batteur, Herman a joué un rôle prépondérant dans l’évolution de ce qui serait reconnu comme le style Scorpions « classique ». La musique débute avec le batteur. Peu de gens le savent. Un simple coup d’oeil au « succès » du groupe, ou plutôt à l'absence de succès, avant l'arrivée de Herman « Ze German », puis la perte de popularité du groupe après son départ, témoignent du rôle essentiel qu’il a joué au sein des Scorpions.
Ce qui nous est livré ici est bien plus que la chronique élogieuse d'un homme ordinaire. Ce livre est tout sauf cela. Au-delà de l’auteur, c’est d’abord l’histoire de ce qui est certainement le plus grand groupe de son époque. Une histoire émaillée d’anecdotes amusantes, de traits d’esprit souvent emplis de sagesse. Considéré comme un chef-d’oeuvre par les amateurs d'un humour ironique ou
satyrique, il s’adresse tout autant aux amoureux de narrations bien troussées, et renouvelle le genre autobiographique. Par ses incessantes histoires et anecdotes, Herman décrit le parcours du groupe jusqu'au sommet de l’Olympe du rock !
Son co-auteur, Michael Krikorian, use de sa plume pour les colorer, apportant plus de teintes et de nuances qu'aucune boîte de crayons Crayola n'en a jamais contenu. Ensemble, ils dressent la table et servent un banquet fait de souvenirs et de sarcasmes, un véritable festin de roi ! Aucun sujet n'est éludé par ce maître de la précision qui use et abuse de jeux de mots et de sous-entendus, pour écrire l'histoire non seulement d'un groupe extraordinaire mais aussi celle de toute une
génération. Sans les calories, mais avec le même sentiment de culpabilité, la franchise et l'honnêteté qui nourrissent ces pages procurent un plaisir délicieusement coupable qui, loin de vous couper l'appétit, vous en fera réclamer davantage !

HELLFEST, la mise en vente des billets pour l'édition 2018 commence vendredi 13 octobre...



« IS 13 YOUR LUCKY NUMBER ? »




www.hellfest.fr


Lundi dernier, à travers un nouvel épisode de ses bandes annonces bien mystérieuses narrant le quotidien d’une inquiétante famille autour d’un nouveau-né, le Hellfest a confirmé que l’ouverture de la billetterie de son édition 2018 était fixée au vendredi 13 octobre. Une date qui n’a bien entendu pas été choisie au hasard et qui, espérons-le, portera chance à tous ceux qui souhaitent se rendre, à nouveau, ou pour la 1ère fois, à cette fête de l’enfer…

Comme tous les amateurs de musiques extrêmes le savent déjà, la 13ème édition du HellFest se déroulera les 22, 23, 24 juin 2018 à Clisson. « YOU CAN’T CONTROL IT », cette année, voilà en quels termes l’équipe de Ben Barbaud a choisi de souligner son ambition de continuer d’évoluer et d’innover pour encore et toujours surprendre le public.

Au-delà de son impressionnante programmation, l’édition 2017 du HellFest a généré de nombreux retours positifs sur la qualité des décors, l’agrandissement des différentes zones, la fin des interminables files d’attentes, l’inauguration d’un nouvel espace VIP, l’élargissement de la Hell City Street, ou encore l'habillage des Main Stages avec des écrans plus que géants... Avec en sus une météo radieuse, il est clair que ce cru 2017 restera une année exceptionnelle. Si la qualité artistique de la prochaine affiche ne fait aucun doute, gageons il en sera de même pour les conditions d'accueil et le confort des festivaliers.

On se souvient aussi que l’année dernière le HellFest avait affiché complet dès le mois d’octobre, quelques jours seulement après la mise en vente des pass et sans même qu’un seul groupe n’ait été annoncé ! Jamais un festival français n’avait rencontré une telle marque de confiance et de fidélité de la part de ses fans. Cette année encore le HellFest annoncera la quasi intégralité de son line up qu’une fois que celui-ci sera finalisé, il va donc falloir attendre encore quelques semaines avant de connaître les noms des groupes qui vont composer l’affiche 2018…

GOOD TIGER NewsDe Xavier le 07/09/2017 à 23:23

Good Tiger reveals details for new album, 'We Will All Be Gone'; launches first single, "The Devil Thinks I'm Sinking", online



On February 9th, Good Tiger will release their sophomore full-length, We Will All Be Gone, via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. For a preview of the album, the first single, "The Devil Thinks I'm Sinking", can be heard at http://metalblade.com/goodtiger



where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

--Digipak CD

--180g Black Vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 500 copies)

--Flesh Pink Clear Vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--Opaque Pale Pink Vinyl (USA exclusive - limited to 500 copies)



With music instantly accessed at the touch of a button, it seems that the urge to pigeonhole bands as quickly and neatly as possible has been driven to ever more extremes in recent years. Good Tiger, however, forge their own path. Blending their influences in a manner that defies lazy classification sets them apart from their contemporaries, imbuing everything they do with a distinctive sound and feel, and with We Will All Be Gone, Good Tiger have dramatically built upon their stunning debut, 2015's A Head Full Of Moonlight. Comprised of guitarists Derya "Dez" Nagle and Joaquin Ardiles, bassist Morgan Sinclair, drummer Alex Rudinger and vocalist Elliot Coleman, Good Tiger has raised the stakes across the board - every track on We Will All Be Gone has a definitive character of its own, and none stay in a single gear, all of them dynamic and textured as they evoke various tones and moods. Tracking at Middle Farm Studios in southwest England, the band also recruited producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool/Dead Letter Circus), and engineer/mixer Adam "Nolly" Getgood (Periphery/Animals As Leaders). "We worked with Nolly on the last album, we had a great working relationship, and wanted to explore that further in a more developed situation," Dez explains. "Forrester has made some of our favorite albums, and is someone we could trust steering the ship. Having self-produced for so long it can be at times quite difficult to let go, so it was important we found people we could fully entrust to help create the album we wanted to make."




Before We Will All Be Gone's release, Good Tiger will head out on tour in North America with I The Mighty and Hail The Sun, plus Biffy Clyro at select shows.

Good Tiger line-up:
Elliot Coleman - vocals
Derya "Dez" Nagle - guitar
Joaquin Ardiles - guitar
Alex Rudinger - drums
Morgan Sinclair - bass

CANNABIS CORPSEDe Xavier le 07/09/2017 à 23:16

CANNABIS CORPSE stream their complete new full-length

CANNABIS CORPSE are now premiering their smoking hot forthcoming album, 'Left Hand Pass', which has been scheduled for release on September 8th.



CANNABIS CORPSE comment: "What's cracking all y'all weed smoking freaks out there!? I am very happy to serve up another gore soaked platter of marijuana murder music! Cannabis Corpse has been around for over a decade now. We are thrilled with how this new album has turned out and hope everyone can tell that we are genuine lovers of old school death metal brutality. Enjoy the new album fiends!"

CANNABIS CORPSE have previously released the artwork and track-list of 'Left Hand Pass', which can both be viewed below.



Track-list

1. The 420th Crusade (4:29)
2. In Dank Purity (2:57)
3. Final Exhalation (2:54)
4. Chronic Breed (4:46)
5. In Battle There Is No Pot (3:26)
6. Grass Obliteration (3:21)
7. Left Hand Pass (3:18)
8. Effigy of the Forgetful (3:32)
9. Papyrus Containing the Spell to Protect Its Possessor Against Attacks from He Who Is in the Bong Water (4:27)
10. The Fiends that Come to Steal the Weed of the Deceased (3:50)

Total playing-time: 37:00

Turning a classic album title such as ENTOMBED's 'Left Hand Path' into a weedy phrase would normally be punishable by having to listen to the worst of MODERN TALKING on continued play. Yet CANNABIS CORPSE not only get away with it, but the death metal and pot aficionados are actually doing exactly what their massive following is happily demanding of the Americans.

CANNABIS CORPSE were conceived out of a passionate love for Floridian death metal shared by MUNICIPAL WASTE bassist / vocalist Phil "LandPhil" Hall and drummer Josh "Hallhammer" Hall, who created the band in 2006 in Richmond, Virginia.

Sharing a penchant for marijuana, the brothers decided from the start to leave the stereotypical genre subjects of gore, splatter, and horror behind and infuse a green sense of humour into their lyrics. Meanwhile it has become a badge of honour for many of the Halls’ idols to have one of their titles turned into a tongue-in-cheek parody. And while there can be no doubt about what inspired a verbal monster such as "Papyrus Containing the Spell to Protect Its Possessor Against Attacks from He Who Is in the Bong Water", the track-list of 'Left Hand Pass' may be read as a death metal quiz for sorts.

CANNABIS CORPSE immediately hit a nerve with their debut 'Blunted at Birth' (2006), while the following full-length 'Tube of the Resinated' (2008) and the EP 'The Weeding' (2009) demonstrated that the band was a musical match to those that they paid obviously tribute to the likes of CANNIBAL CORPSE, MORBID ANGEL, DEICIDE, and OBITUARY. With 'Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise' (2011), the Americans set another benchmark of keeping the old school spirit alive. Before the release of fourth acclaimed album, 'From Wisdom to Baked' (2014), the spliff lovers' complete catalogue was re-issued on Season of Mist.

Now CANNABIS CORPSE are doing once again what they are best at and hammer out a perfect death metal album that combines straight-to-the-point songwriting with technical prowess. Time to fly high again with 'Left Hand Pass'!

Style: Death Metal

ACT OF DEFIANCE NewsDe Xavier le 07/09/2017 à 23:07

Act Of Defiance launches video for new track, "Overexposure"



Act Of Defiance - the heavy metal group featuring the veteran talents of Chris Broderick on guitar, Henry Derek on vocals, Shawn Drover on drums and Matt Bachand on bass - will return with their new album, Old Scars, New Wounds, on September 29th via Metal Blade Records. After slamming back into the metalscape with their first video/single "M.I.A.", Act Of Defiance is back today with a second new music video/track, "Overexposure". Directed by Vince Edwards, the melodic scorcher is backed with fast-paced imagery of the band members in their finest form - churning out a precise metal assault!
Watch here:



http://www.metalblade.com/actofdefiance/
where you can also pre-order the album in the following formats:

--CD
--180g Black Vinyl
--Golden Vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 100 copies)
--Auburn Marbled Vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 300 copies)


On Old Scars, New Wounds, Act Of Defiance has upped the ante. Each of the 11 new tracks sound fresh and urgent while wielding a timeless quality that will connect powerfully with metal fans new and old - and there aren't many contemporary bands who can make such a claim. Naturally blending a plethora of metallic styles and never recycling ideas, Old Scars, New Wounds is an even more dynamic and diverse collection than its predecessor. The title - plucked from the blistering track "Conspiracy Of The Gods" - stands as a metaphor for life in general, and the breadth of lyrical matter covered is as broad as the styles of heavy music found on the record.


Old Scars, New Wounds track-listing:

1. M.I.A.
2. Molten Core
3. Overexposure
4. The Talisman
5. Lullaby of Vengeance
6. Circle of Ashes
7. Reborn
8. Conspiracy of the Gods
9. Another Killing Spree
10. Broken Dialect
11. Rise of Rebellion



Going into writing the record, the quartet had no grand plan, and spread across the continental US, the individual members worked separately, bouncing demos back and forth and building on each others' ideas. Like many contemporary bands, through taking advantage of available technologies they made a record that is very much a collaborative effort, despite the distances lying between the members' home bases. Recruiting producer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Allegaeon) they tracked the record likewise, with Broderick laying down guitars in his own Ill-Fated Studios in LA, Derek and Broderick's vocals tracked at Red Light Studios also in LA, with Bachand tracking his contributions at Manshark in South Hampton, MA and Drover's drums were laid down at Atlanta's Glow In The Dark Studios.



Having proven themselves on the road in support of Birth And The Burial both as headliners and supporting the likes of Killswitch Engage, Hellyeah, and Hatebreed, the band are looking ahead to the expansive touring that will accompany Old Scars, New Wounds, and their hunger to get back in front of crowds has not abated in the slightest. Upcoming touring plans are set to be announced very soon.

Stay tuned for more news, tracks and videos coming from Act Of Defiance, in anticipation of the release of Old Scars, New Wounds.

SepticFlesh premiere new video clip De Xavier le 02/09/2017 à 10:21



The highly anticipated tenth SEPTICFLESH full-length, 'Codex Omega' has finally hit the shops today, Friday, September 1st. The Greek masters of symphonic death metal are celebrating this occasion by releasing a video clip for the track "Portrait of a Headless Man".

The sinister clip created by celebrated director Jon Simvonis is now streaming



SEPTICFLESH comment on their new video: "We are proud to present the video for our song 'Portrait of a Headless Man' to you. Does this look like a dystopian artistic trip or like something sinister that is in fact happening right now? In any case, this clip represents the aesthetics and dark atmosphere of our new album 'Codex Omega' perfectly. Push play and connect!"

SEPTICFLESH have previously release the following statement about their new album: "The beginning of autumn marks the release of our tenth opus 'Codex Omega'. You are all welcome to enter Inferno in search for the last Testament. Here only the Headless prevail, as there is no godhead above. Here Martyrs died for the sake of reason and knowledge. And our Art is our Church. Our Queen is no 'virgin' Mary. Our Gospels are bringing fear. And at the end, the true identity of Trinity is revealed. Behold Codex Omega!"

'Codex Omega' has already been named "album of the month" by Spark Magazine (CZ), Ultraje (PT), and Ghostcult Magazine (UK) with more such highest scores confirmed but not made public yet.

The artwork for 'Codex Omega' has been created by frontman Seth and can be viewed below.



1. Dante's Inferno (5:34)
2. 3rd Testament (Codex Omega) (4:08)
3. Portrait of a Headless Man (5:00)
4. Martyr (5:07)
5. Enemy of Truth (4:55)
6. Dark Art (5:24)
7. Our Church, Below the Sea (3:59)
8. Faceless Queen (5:20)
9. The Gospels of Fear (3:41)
10. Trinity (4:07)




SEPTICFLESH are painting an apocalyptic vision and make full use of their impressive musical palette consisting of death metal and orchestral colours on their tenth full-length, 'Codex Omega'.

From their alpha EP 'Temple of the Lost Race' that was released one year after their founding in 1990, the Greek musicians have pushed the limits of the metal genre and continued to explore new sonic path with every following release from their debut album 'Mystic Places of Dawn' (1994) to the stunning 'Sumerian Daemons' (2003), which have in the meantime all been re-issued by Season of Mist.

Yet SEPTICFLESH had clearly come into their own sound when they unleashed their celebrated comeback album after a five-year hiatus that re-charged their artistic batteries. 'Communion' (2008) offered a well-balanced amalgamation of metal elements that were freely drawn from the darker side of the genre including death, black, and gothic metal with epic orchestral arrangements. This symphonic excellence was based on guitarist Christos Antoniou bringing to bear the fruits of his academic studies of classical composition, which he passed with honours and distinction.

With a clear musical compass to navigate, SEPTICFLESH continued to explore their sound and the compositional possibilities of this new-found metal continent. 'The Great Mass' (2011) and 'Titan' (2014) saw the Greeks evolving at fast speed and at the same time gathering adherents as well as critical praise in ever growing numbers. Extended touring on both sides of the Atlantic and performances at about every important festival further consolidated the bands burgeoning status.

Although the biblical omega marks the end, SEPTICFLESH on the contrary are reaching their current peak with 'Codex Omega', an album that clearly witnesses the Greek visionaries having come to maturity and expert craftsmanship in every sense.

SEPTICFLESH are the undisputable masters of symphonic death metal and 'Codex Omega' is the perfect proof for this bold statement.

Clip du précédent single "I'm Coming Hot"


Nouveau titre "Sleepwalking"


Los Angeles - based Mexican-Italian-American solo artist DIAMANTE releases her brand-new single “Sleepwalking” today via Better Noise Records following its premiere with Brightest Young Things.

Produced by Howard Benson [Chris Cornell, Kelly Clarkson, My Chemical Romance, Halestorm], “Sleepwalking” sees the up-and-comig rock firebrand revealing new layers to her craft both sonically and emotionally.

About the song, Diamante explains, “’Sleepwalking’ is the augmented supernatural version of a post-psychologically gut-wrenching heartbreak. It's about being so completely immersed by the loss that their presence is felt everywhere, even physically. It's a sinister heightened reality where the only means of escape are by living in the numb in-between world of wake and sleep”

“Sleepwalking” follows her debut single “Coming In Hot” which premiered via Alternative Press and has garnered nearly 400K views to date!

Coming In Hot is also the title track to her forthcoming 2018 debut LP. The upcoming collection brings to light a signature sound the artist has been developing meticulously since age 13. Now 20, Diamante is poised to breathe new life into rock. With her edgy style, sultry vocals, pop sensibility, and unabashed swagger, Diamante draws from myriad influences and calls to mind legends from a spectrum of rock icons including Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Debbie Harry, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Bowie.
