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:
--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 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.
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'!

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!
where you can also pre-order the album in the following formats:
--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:
2. Molten Core
4. The Talisman
5. Lullaby of Vengeance
6. Circle of Ashes
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.
Act of Defiance line-up:
Chris Broderick - guitar
Henry Derek - vocals
Shawn Drover - drums
Matt Bachand - bass
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.
It’s getting serious! Melodic power metal band SERIOUS BLACK not only releases the highly anticipated third album, titled „Magic“ today, but also a brand new lyric video for the song “The Witch Of Caldwell Town” is available now.
What melodic power metal band SERIOUS BLACK has achieved in less than three years of band history and with only two albums under their belts, is extraordinary. The band, consisting of musicians from bands such as Firewind, Rhapsody, Tad Morose, Edenbridge, Visions of Atlantis and Dreamscape, has positioned itself directly among the leading formations of their genre. Tours with HammerFall and Gamma Ray made the fanbase grow rapidly and with the first headlining tour in September 2016 SERIOUS BLACK impressively demonstrated that they are a real live force! Inspired by the consistently euphoric reactions of fans and the media alike, the band will already release its third studio album, titled "Magic", is available now.
“Magic” sees SERIOUS BLACK reach the peak of their creativity and takes the listener on a journey through a world of fantasy. A 14 songs strong jewel case CD marks the 2basic” album, while the 2CD Digipak comes with an bonus CD (”Live In Atlanta”) and the ltd. “witch board” box set even includes an additional unplugged CD. Of course “Magic” is also available on (black and white) Vinyl. After the launch of the album, SERIOUS BLACK will hit the road once again – again as headliners and this time supported by special guest and AFM labelmate Herman Frank.

Der Weg einer Freiheit unleash complete new album and announce new guitarist
DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT are unleashing their complete forthcoming album, 'Finisterre'. The new masterpiece of the rising German black metal stars will be released this Friday, August 25th.
The fourth full-length of these fire-starting Germans is now being streamed :
Frontman Nikita Kamprad comments on behalf of the band: "Today, we are finally able to present our full new album 'Finisterre' to you. We hope that you will enjoy it! However, we also need to let you know that our long-time guitarist Sascha decided to leave the band to pursue his own musical vision. Whenever possible, he will still be helping us out as a backliner. We thank Sascha for all his passion and dedication to this band and wish him the very best for his future endeavours! We take this opportunity to introduce our new guitarist Nico, who has already stepped in as live guitarist for some shows in 2011 and is now joining us full time. The past three gigs with him, including our release show at Summer Breeze, went great and we are more than ready to finally unleash 'Finisterre' and see you on tour in September and October!"
Former guitarist Sascha adds: "I am using this opportunity to give a big round of thanks to everyone who contributed to DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT in any way and any form over the past six years and everyone who is going to do this in future, because I will remain with the band behind the stage whenever possible and you might see me jump around before a show to make sure that everything runs smoothly. This way I can keep working with my best friends. My decision to leave the stage was sure not an easy one and took me a long time, but I just have to move on in a musical sense and dedicate my creativity for my other band FUCK YOU AND DIE and another new metal band venture that is taking a huge part of my time, passion and care. If you would like to connect and catch up with me - feel free to hit me up on the socials. Please enjoy 'Finisterre' as it is a magnificent piece of art and I believe in Nikita's way of creating music. Thank you again and see you soon! Probably sooner than you might think. Sincerely, Sascha."
Artwork and track-list of 'Finisterre' can be viewed below.
1. Aufbruch (9:49)
2. Ein letzter Tanz (13:49)
3. Skepsis Part I (5:05)
4. Skepsis Part II (5:36)
5. Finisterre (11:13)
The musical puzzle that adds up to become DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT turns into something more complex – yet also clearer defined on the band's fourth studio album, 'Finisterre'. The original pieces are still in play: the aggressive German directness akin to ENDSTILLE and a penchant for brooding melancholy as embodied by IMPERIUM DEKADENZ. Spiralling psychedelic moments comparable to DEAFHEAVEN and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM also find their place – as well as a knack for majestic melodies that shows parallels in Swedish black metal spearheaded by MARDUK and DARK FUNERAL.
Yet while DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT are clearly progressing along the lines laid out by their previous acclaimed effort, 'Stellar', the band has found a way to make these pieces fit more seamlessly. 'Finisterre' flows together into a coherent picture that stresses the Germans’ unique approach and sound. This album marks the point where DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT turn their various influences into a work entirely of their own expression despite never trying to cover up their roots. This impressive maturity has been reached through several stages.
Founded in 2009 by guitarist Nikita Kamprad and vocalist Tobias Jaschinsky, DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT garnered early attention with their self-released debut 'Der Weg einer Freiheit' (2009), which quickly sold out and was re-issued with new drum tracks a year later. Following the 'Agonie' EP (2011), their second album 'Unstille' (2012) already cored international acclaim. In the aftermath of this record, co-founding member Tobias left and main songwriter Nikita Kamprad took over his vocal duties.
The frontman was first heard on third full-length 'Stellar' (2015), which saw DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT gaining traction across the pond as well as expanding their European base. Having performed along such diverse acts as WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, NEAERA, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, AMENRA, CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX, and DOWNFALL OF GAIA as well as playing prestigious festivals such as Graspop, Hellfest, Resurrection, Roadburn, Summer Breeze, and Wacken has honed the band’s songwriting skills to razor-sharp precision.
'Finisterre' clearly stands at the apex (for now) of the steep climb that DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT have taken. This German star is finally shining in full black.

Rather than meticulously plan things out or stick rigidly to any kind of template, when it comes to writing, The Black Dahlia Murder prefer to let things happen organically. In the hands of guitarist Brian Eschbach - who co-founded the band with front-man Trevor Strnad in 2001 - and new recruit Brandon Ellis (Arsis, ex-Cannabis Corpse), Nightbringers is rich with dynamic riffs that are at once fresh and classic The Black Dahlia Murder, resulting in a collection that shifts through many moods and effortlessly incorporates various elements of extreme metal. While Strnad explores a variety of themes and ideas with his lyrics, they are united by the album's title, which embraces a tenet that has been central to The Black Dahlia Murder's output since the very beginning. "Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me," Strnad explains. "We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld - such as marriage and monogamy - came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It's 'being-the-villain music', because we're the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it's for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and 'Kings Of The Nightworld' are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle."
2. Of God and Serpent, Of Spectre and Snake
6. Kings of the Nightworld
7. Catacomb Hecatomb
8. As Good as Dead

The Heroin Diaries Graphic Novel in collaboration with HEAVY METAL
First Time Ever Graphic Novel Adaptation Of The Heroin Diaries
LOS ANGELES CA, August 21, 2017 – Today marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Nikki Sixx’s drug-soaked NY Times bestselling memoir, THE HEROIN DIARIES and SiXX:A.M.’s The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack.
To commemorate more than a decade of sobriety and life lessons learned, Nikki Sixx and SIXX:A.M. revisit the seminal work; announcing Tenth Anniversary Editions of the book and album in multiple formats including: digital LP, CD, CD / DVD, and Special Edition Vinyl, and Graphic Novel. Fans can get a jump start TODAY by pre-ordering these and more exclusively at PledgeMusic.
Nikki Sixx got sober sixteen years ago. A decade ago he shared this story with the world. And yet with the modern opioid crisis looming larger than ever; Sixx’s journey to sobriety and the words and music it inspired remains poignantly relevant.
Chronicling the year of decadence and depravity that almost cost Sixx his life during the recording and tour for Mötley Crüe’s seminal 1987 album GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS, the book not only became a worldwide bestseller but also spawned the band SIXX:A.M., and Sixx’s nationally syndicated daily iHeart Media rock radio show “Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx.”
Says Sixx: “Over the last ten years I’ve met so many people who have thanked me for The Heroin Diaries and say that it saved their lives,” explains Nikki. “But the truth is, writing The Heroin Diaries saved my life too.”
Journey back again into this mega–New York Times bestselling survivor’s story in one of the most “harrowing” (Rolling Stone) and “heartbreaking” (The New York Times) memoirs of addiction ever published and the soundtrack it inspired. The once-shattered rock star shares raw and mesmerizing journal entries from the year he plunged to rock bottom—and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again. In never-before-seen photos and exclusive new chapters, Nikki reflects on his decade of sobriety in this expanded 10th anniversary edition of the book.
SIXX:A.M. also celebrates its 10-year anniversary with the re-release of The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack: 10th Anniversary Edition. Comprised of James Michael (vocalist, producer, songwriter), Dj Ashba (guitarist, songwriter) Nikki Sixx (bassist, songwriter), the group initially came together to write, record, and co-produce The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, which sold over 300,000 copies, and includes the #1 hit single, “Life Is Beautiful,” which became radio’s most played rock song of 2008. Over the past decade SIXX:A.M. has become a full-fledged global rock powerhouse, releasing four additional albums, multiple Top 5 hits and playing the biggest festivals and arenas around the world.
THE HEROIN DIARIES: Ten Year Anniversary Edition by Nikki Sixx is out October 24th via Gallery Books / Simon & Schuster featuring a new cover, never-before-seen photos and exclusive brand new chapters.
THE HEROIN DIARIES: 10th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack by SIXX:A.M. will be released October 27th via Eleven Seven Music as a digital album, CD, and CD/DVD. A limited edition vinyl package will also come later this year. All music configurations feature new artwork, personal notes from the band and include 3 newly re-imagined tracks: “Life Is Beautiful 2017”, “Accidents Can Happen 2017”, and Girl With Golden Eyes 2017”.
Also on pre-sale today is The Heroin Diaries graphic novel, a collaboration that Nikki Sixx and HEAVY METAL recently announced at ComicCon San Diego. The Graphic Novel presents the Heroin Diaries from a different angle and gives both insight and understanding to the deadly trap and temptation of addiction adapted by Rantz Hoseley, illustrated by Danijel Zezelj, and Keiron Dwyer, an with exclusive cover art by David Mack.
In addition, Sixx will debut his first-ever photography exhibit in partnership with Leica Camera at the Leica Gallery Los Angeles beginning October 4 (announcement forthcoming). The collection features Sixx’s most precious moments and interactions from the past decade, in images including homelessness and drug addiction amongst other topics which Sixx was all too familiar with before photography helped change his life post-sobriety.
