MAD MAX release Video Trailer for "Godzilla"De Xavier le 17/12/2013 à 22:17

German Hard Rockers MAD MAX release a brand new trailer for the song "Godzilla" today.

The clip can be found here:

GODZILLA was written in Tokyo while MAD MAX singer Michael Voss was on tour in Japan singing for MICHAEL SCHENKER!

Michael Voss: "Walking through the streets of Tokyo brought back memories of those old GODZILLA movies. So everybody get ready for some heavy guitar riffing while GODZILLA is destroying your town!"

"Godzilla" is taken from the new MAD MAX album "Interceptor" which is out on Steamhammer/SPV.

HIRAX reveal new tracklisting : new album "Immortal Legacy"!De Xavier le 17/12/2013 à 22:00

“On our new album we more than ever felt an artistic obligation to our fans to give them a really big-sounding record,” says Katon W. De Pena the vocalist of the American thrash metal act HIRAX. He is referring to Immortal Legacy, the latest release by his band which – there can be no doubt about that – will cause a definite stir on the international thrash metal scene. “Our philosophy has always been to remember where we come from and stay true to our roots. Our fans know that we will never let them down and that they have helped to raise us up to a level with bands such as Slayer, Sodom, Kreator, Exodus, Overkill, Testament, Annihilator and many others. This record proves that we are at the top of our game musically!”

According to Katon W. De Pena, the reason for this, is a line-up which agrees 100% on the group’s stylistic direction and has brought to bear its full energy to make Immortal Legacy the masterpiece it is. Lance Harrison (lead guitars) is Katon’s co-writing partner. “Lance is a riff-writing master and a major force to reckon with! Nicknamed the Shred Baron for obvious reasons. He believes in heavy metal 100%.” His younger brother Steve (bass guitar) is an important part of the HIRAX sound: “Nobody plays bass like him! There is a unique sound and bond between Steve and his brother. As a bass player, he is a true musician.” Last but not least there’s Jorge Iacobellis (drums and percussions), born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Iacobellis is a seasoned veteran who plays with lots of heart and soul. Katon: “The best way I can describe his drumming style is loud and powerful.”

This constellation has seen HIRAX record more than a dozen scalding hot thrash metal tracks which combine an amazing number of variations. Katon: “This is probably our most diverse album ever. I think there is something for every heavy metal fan on this record! Obviously I’m very proud of it.” Rightly so, because a number such as ‘Hellion Rising’ is straight out of the HIRAX vein – very true to their original in-your-face thrash metal! The most unusual song on the record must be ‘The World Will Burn’. Katon: “You have to hear it to believe it.” His favourite track on this record changes daily, “but if I had to decide today, it would be ‘Black Smoke’, along with the title track ‘Immortal Legacy’. Once you hear them you will never forget them.”

The new songs were produced by Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Armored Saint, W.A.S.P., Sacred Reich). HIRAX already worked with him back in the early 1980s on their first two albums. Metoyer is a master at his craft and HIRAX feel honored and lucky to have him working with them. For Katon he is a “musical wizard and his work on our new album is genious.”

The cover of Immortal Legacy was drawn by legendary artist Philip Lawvere (Kreator/Celtic Frost) – his first oil painting in 25 years since coming out of retirement. He is the artist behind such classic album covers as Kreator’s Pleasure To Kill and Celtic Frost’s Emperor’s Return. Lawvere had done stunning illustrations for numerous albums and is best known for a slew of thrash metal offerings released on Noise Records. The HIRAX front man comments: “We couldn’t be happier to have Philip Lawvere illustrating the cover of our new album. After getting Bill Metoyer to produce it, this is truly the icing on the thrash metal cake!”

With guest guitar players Jim Durkin (Dark Angel), Juan Garcia (Agent Steel/Evildead) and Rocky George (Suicidal Tendencies/Fishbone) on the album, Katon is excited about a real metal monster which his band has produced: “This is our most epic-sounding record to date, sonically powerful and over the top. 14 new raging thrash metal songs that will make you bang your head!!!”

Immortal Legacy will be released in Germany on 21 February, in Europe on 24 February and in the US/Canada on 4 March through SPV/Steamhammer as CD, gatefold coloured LP and download. Katon: “As to future tour plans, the European and US fans can expect to see us hit their shores very soon in 2014! The HIRAX thrash attack is coming, so get ready worldwide!”

Here is the video for the title track:

The current line-up consists of the original members Dave King (vocals) and Brian Smith (bass) as well as Mick Percy (guitar) and Paul AT Kinson (drums).

The band adds:

"We can hardly believe that the task is finally over, the album that we never thought that we would complete is finally finished! It has been a long hard road against almost impossible odds and we hope that everyone out there are as pleased with the result as we are. If it were not for the devotion of all our fans old and new we probably wouldn't be here today. It is you guys who resurrected this band! The songs are total Battleaxe and the production is better than we could have hoped for with a limited budget.
Thanks to Fred Purser and the guys in the band we have got this thing sounding massive! Many thanks to Olly and SPV for making the release of this album possible and for making the 21st century version of Battleaxe become a reality!"

THE INTERSPHERE announce new album and offer Title Track as FREE DOWNLOAD
"Relations In The Unseen" will be released on March 7th in G.A.S., March 10th in UK/Europe and March 18th in N. America

Almost two years after the suprising German chart success of "Hold On, Liberty!", The Intersphere return with a brand new studio album. And instead of relying on formulas or formats, the band have relied completely on their hands an hearts. That being said, The Intersphere are pushing the boundaries of rock music towards new horizons with a pace and precision seldom found in German bands in the last few years. Under the production acumen of Singer/Guitarist Christoph Hessler and co-producer/mixer Moritz Enders (whose credits include German indie powerhouses Casper, Kraftklub and Madsen), this fourth release in The Intersphere discography was recorded together with Wolfgang Manns at Toolhouse Studios.

"'Relations In The Unseen' is not a concept album, but there is definitely a purveying train of thought overall. We all communicate, not only directly, but also indirectly through gestures, body language, thoughts and connections that are unconcious at first," says Christoph Hessler. Lyrically, the album concentrates on these unconcious things that influence our feelings, thoughts and reactions. Every day we're offered countless examples of this - invisible, unknown - over distances, times and dimensions.

With "Relations In The Unseen" The Intersphere have succeeded at a return to self - and to the really important things in music.

A peek into the new material via the title track "Relations In The Unseen" is available as a Free Download.

CREMATORY release cover and tracklisting for the new album "Antiserum"De Xavier le 12/12/2013 à 08:18

CREMATORY release new album "Antiserum" on February 24th, 2014

Crematory no longer need to fear comparison with the international competition, Germany’s most popular Gothic Metal Band having earned itself an excellent reputation at home and abroad over the past 23 years. One reason for this is the great recognition value of their songs, along with the band’s characteristic style and their unconditional determination to continue to grow as artists. None of their albums so far is a copy of any of its predecessors; each of them is an independent recording with unique features and fresh ideas.

So if Crematory have decided to pick up the electronic elements from Revolution (2004) on their latest album Antiserum, they do so with different parameters and future-oriented visions. “Our fans can look forward to Antiserum, on which we have gone one step further than we did on our comeback album Revolution in terms of electronic influences,” drummer Markus Jüllich explains. “In collaboration with Elmar Schmidt of Hamburg EBM act Centhron, we have come up with a haunting mix of metal riffs and EBM keyboards. That’s why I’d refer to Antiserum’s musical direction as ‘EBM-Metal’.”

As homogeneous as the final result may sound, a great deal of concentration was invested throughout to produce the desired result. Markus Jüllich confesses: “In the beginning it was more difficult than we’d thought. The sounds and samples that Elmar brought us had no really song structures, that’s why we didn’t have a central theme to start off with. It took us two or three songs to get in to the groove, but from that point on it was an extremely exciting process to work on the new material.”

The Crematory drummer is referring to tracks such as ‘Virus’ with its pulsating EBM flair, ‘Inside Your Eyes’, which consistently and unashamedly professes the desired EBM elements, and the first single release ‘Shadowmaker’, a veritable anthem which continues the long-standing Crematory tradition of including at least one real hit on each album. Markus Jüllich: “Even before the whole record was finalized we knew that ‘Shadowmaker’ had absolute hit potential. We never had a moment’s doubt that we had come up with the new Crematory anthem.”

Along with this purposely experimental direction, Antiserum also features a number of tracks which see Crematory rely on their traditional strengths and familiar characteristics. The title song is a perfect example of typical Crematory ingredients, just like ‘Back From The Dead’ and ‘If You Believe’, which could also have featured on either of the two predecessor albums Pray (2008) and Infinity (2010).

In view of the convincing result spawned by this ‘Gothic Metal meets EBM’ liaison, we can attest Crematory an even more homogeneous mélange of supposedly opposing musical directions than on Revolution. “We were even bolder this time than we were in 2004. We played even more with different sounds and have – in my opinion – cleverly combined real drum parts with electronic patterns. For me as the band’s drummer, it will be really exciting to see how we are going to translate this in a live context. But since it works so well on Antiserum, I’m confident that it will be a really good mix live, too.”

By the way: Crematory fans will be able to mark the new live dates in their diary soon. “We’ve had loads of enquiries,” Markus Jüllich enthuses. “So we will go out and tour as much as possible again to give our fans the right antiserum against frustration and tedium.”

"Antiserum" will be released as a deluxe box set (incl. flag, patch, poster, sticker, postcard), digipakversion inl. 2 bonus tracks, 2LP gatefold coloured vinyl version incl. 2 bonus tracks, standard version and download.

Release dates are: February 21st in Germany, February 24th in Europe and March 4th in the USA.

Comme son prédécesseur, le second volume de « THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN & THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL » est entré à la seconde place des meilleures ventes aux USA


Candlelight Records today confirms February 24th as the North American release date of Consolamentum, the label debut from English doom metallers THE WOUNDED KINGS. Produced by Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard), the album will be available for preorders via ITunes and other digital platforms beginning January 13th .

Discussing the album earlier this year, guitarist and band founder Steve Mills revealed “this album will be our most expansive and heaviest.” Indeed it is. The album’s opening song, “Gnosis,” clocks in at a mammoth 13 minutes. From there it latches on to your soul as it travels a dark and desolate sonic terrain. “The entire album was recorded and mixed in six days during the hottest week of the year in a studio miles from anything in the Cornish countryside,” shares producer Chris Fielding. “Recorded completely live, it captures the natural feel of the band. I find it to be a real step forward musically and very rewarding.”

Overcoming numerous line-ups since their formation in 2005, Mills and the KINGS have amazed audiences with their powerful stage personae. THE WOUNDED KINGS have a mystical and mythical quality which makes them an enormously appealing prospect,” said Terrorizer Magazine of the band’s summertime London performance. “THE WOUNDED KINGS sound is so organic that the room actually starts to feel damp and musty,” notes Blabbermouth. The two-time Roadburn alumni are cherished by attendees and the popular festival promoters, who call the band “British doom of staggering power that is made all the more distinct by the unsettling presence of singer Sharie Neyland, who stands on stage almost trance-like, invoking her lyrics in a chanted voice that holds the entire venue in thrall.”

To date the Dartmoor-based five piece has released three full-length studio albums and a well received split album with Richmond, Virginia’s Cough. The band has been finding a growing American audience since the release of their 2011 album, In the Chapel Of The Black Hand. It is the first to feature Neyland. On review Metal Sucks called her “a post-apocalypse metal Grace Jones or Eartha Kitt.”

Track listing for Consolamentum is:

1. Gnosis
2. Lost Bride
3. Elige Magistrum
4. Consolamentum
5. Space Conqueror
6. The Silence
7. Sacrifice

THE WOUNDED KINGS is guitarist/keyboardist Steve Mills, vocalist Sharie Neyland, guitarist Alex Kearney, bassist Al Eliadis, and drummer Myke Heath.

Primal Fear - détails du nouvel album !De Xavier le 09/12/2013 à 20:53

PRIMAL FEAR "Delivering The Black" 24/01/2014 - Frontiers Records

If you’re talking about today’s European top Heavy Metal acts, then the discussion will head straight towards Primal Fear. Former Gamma Ray vocalist Ralf Scheepers and bassist/vocalist Mat Sinner, two of the most respected German metal musicians founded the band in late 1997.

With nine studio albums released, two live products and a Best-Of, Primal Fear are certainly one of nowadays most beloved and respected worldwide Heavy Metal bands. Their last studio album “Unbreakable” became their highest chart entry in Germany on Pos. 31 and charted in 7 more countries.

After some very serious songwriting sessions and an intense pre-production schedule, the band started to record the new album “Delivering The Black” in summer 2013 at the House of Music studios in Germany, with producer Mat Sinner and engineer Achim Koehler. The direction was to create the most powerful Primal Fear album ever. The band moved to Denmark in September to finish the album with acclaimed producer/engineer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Pretty Maids, Amaranthe) handling the mix.

“Delivering The Black” combines the strongest Primal Fear moments ever, with a well-balanced typical Primal Fear trademark riff-vibe crushing songs and some very ambitious musical journeys. The center of the album are the two epic tracks “When Death Comes Knocking” and the 10 minute opus “One Night In December”, spiced with big orchestral arrangements and complex sound designs.

Classic and ultra-fresh Primal Fear riff-rockers like the title track “Delivering The Black”, the album opener “King For A Day” or the groove monsters “Alive And On Fire” and “Road To Asylum” will hit the bulls-eye, like the untamed speed killer “Rebel Fraction”. Less experiments, more metal! The outstanding ballad “Born With A Broken Heart” shows a new picture of Primal Fear with an acoustic guitar feeling and the addition of Liv Kristine (Leaves’ Eyes) on backing vocals.

Singer Ralf Scheepers says: “We worked hard to create our best album ever. I already felt the vibe during the pre-production, that we were working on something very special this time! And now the result is just an amazing Metal album, I’m extremely proud of!”Producer/bassist Mat Sinner adds: “The songs, the production, the sound – this album is a very special one for me and my career. In my view everybody in the band just did a killer job and Jacob was fantastic choice to mix the album!”

Anticipated by the release of the digital only single “When Death Comes Knocking”, Primal Fear are about to release their strongest album ever: “Delivering The Black”.Don’t miss the German Metal Commando on their worldwide tour in 2014!

CODE release free advance stream of new album "Augur Nox"De Xavier le 12/11/2013 à 23:31

Experimental black metal mavericks CODE have teamed up with Terrorizer Magazine to launch an advance stream of band's new album "Augur Nox" (out November 19th in Europe and 26th in North America). The stream is available at:

"Augur Nox" is the first album featuring CODE's new line up of Aort, Wacian, Syhr, LORDt and Andras. The brand-new material demonstrates the band's fresh personnel in a vivid light, confirming CODE's position as a radiant gem in the extreme metal world. It displays a multifaceted approach: from stunning wide-ranging vocals, otherworldly clean passages and barbed metallic riffery, all filtered through a refined prism of avant-garde black metal. The album is CODE's most progressive effort to date, yet always captures the band's distinct eerie and arcane vibe.

Featuring ten tracks and 2 interludes over a 55 minute playing time, "Augur Nox" is a bold step forward where acute songwriting and expansive experimentation go hand in hand. CODE's sound has been both refined and exaggerated at the same time, to produce a melodically dense and ambitious piece of work. The band describes the forthcoming release as their "most dynamic and challenging material to date".

"Augur Nox" was mixed and mastered at Orgone Studios in London (Ghost, Cathedral, Ulver) after three years of development and pre-production.

1. Black Rumination
2. Becoming Host
3. Ecdysis
4. Glimlight Tourist
- Dx. (interlude)
5. Garden Chancery
6. The Lazarus Cord
7. The Shrike Screw
- Rx. (interlude)
8. Trace of God
9. Harmonies in Cloud
10. White Tryptych

The follow-up to 2009's "Resplendent Grotesque" (nominated for a Spellemann Award in the best metal album category) will be available in digipack, limited vinyl and digital formats. The vinyl formats include: black vinyl, colour in colour vinyl (bone white/ultra clean)limited to 100 copies and a further 100 copies on swamp green/ultra clean colour in colour vinyl.

Legendary progressive rock innovators CYNIC (guitarist/vocalist Paul Masvidal, drummer Sean Reinert, bassist Sean Malone) have revealed the cover art, title and release date of their new album. The highly-anticipated new record is entitled 'Kindly Bent to Free Us' and was produced by CYNIC at L.A.'s Perfect Sound Studios.

The album was engineered by Jason Donaghy (BAND OF HORSES, FEIST, ROB ZOMBIE, RYAN ADAMS), mixed by R. Walt Vincent (PETE YORN, LIZ PHAIR, TOMMY KEENE) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (FATES WARNING, SEPULTURA, CATHEDRAL, INQUISITION, HALFORD).

The artwork for 'Kindly Bent to Free Us' has been created by long-time and sadly late CYNIC artist Robert Venosa (R.I.P.) and looks like this:

'Kindly Bent to Free Us' will be released on February 14th. The album will be available as a CD Digipak, a limited edition collector's box, limited edition double LP, and digitally.

About the new material, drummer Sean Reinert said: "It's a bold new sound for CYNIC and marks a gigantic leap in the band's progression. We've had a lot of time to let this material develop and gestate, and it finally feels ready to be unleashed on the world. I've been in trio mode with Malone and Masvidal flushing out a zillion and one details, and couldn't be happier about what's happening with these songs. They are truly alive!"

GHOST, nouveau EP produit par Dave Grohl des Foo Fighters !De Tiphaine le 13/10/2013 à 22:47

Encore peu connu dans l'Hexagone, GHOST (Ghost BC aux USA) est pourtant La sensation tant musicale que visuelle de ces derniers mois. En marge de toutes modes et autres formatages, ce mystérieux groupe suédois s'est retrouvé tête d'affiche "surprise" du Hellfest en juin dernier et à la une du magazine Rock Hard pendant tout l'été aux côtés de Jason Newsted (ex-bassiste de Metallica). "Infestissumam", leur deuxième album sorti en avril 2013, s'est classé numéro 1 en Suède, Top 30 aux USA et n°35 en Grande-Bretagne...

Mais qui se cache derrière l'inquiétant rictus du Papa Emeritus II (chant) et sous les masques de ces cinq Nameless Ghouls qui l'accompagnent ? Le mystère reste intact et suscite bien des rumeurs...

Loin du "carnage" sonore que l'on pourrait imaginer à la vue des photos du groupe, GHOST délivre une musique aussi captivante qu'envoûtante, très largement influencée par les 70's, lorgnant même parfois vers une sorte de "pop" aux ambiances psychédéliques... on pense alors à Blue Öyster Cult, aux Doors, Black Sabbath… mais aussi aux Beatles voire Depeche Mode...

Actuellement en tournée aux USA en 1ère partie d'Avenged Sevenfold (bande annonce ICI), GHOST était à l'affiche du Rock In Rio il y a encore à peine 3 semaines (voir "Year Zero" ICI) sur la même scène qu'Iron Maiden, Metallica, Muse, Nickelback ou encore The Offspring, pour n’en citer que quelques-uns…

GHOST vient d'annoncer la sortie d'un nouveau EP pour le 18 novembre prochain sur le label Spinefarm (distribution Caroline / Universal Music). Intitulé " If You Have Ghost" et produit par Dave Grohl ce disque présentera 4 reprises et un titre live :

01)'If You Have Ghosts' (Roky Erickson)
02)'I Am A Marionette' (ABBA)
03)'Crucified' (Army Of Lovers)
04)'Waiting For The Night' (Depeche Mode)
05)'Secular Haze' (Live) voir la video ICI

Nekrogoblikon release 'Powercore' video, taken from their new record 'power' out todayDe Xavier le 27/08/2013 à 22:37

International twerking champions and saviors of American goblin metal, NEKROGOBLIKON, have released a brand new video for their song "Powercore".

Alex "Goldberg" Alereza comments: "This video contains performance footage of our trek through Europe with our goblin friend John Goblikon. John came with us for the sole purpose of getting laid; he failed miserably, but as you can see from the video he still had a great time being on giant stages in foreign countries while screaming at children with us."

"Powercore" comes from the band's half-length album power, which was released today and has picked up a prestigious 5 K review in this week's issue of Kerrang! Magazine.

Candlelight Records today confirms October 21st as the North American release date for Das Seelenbrechen, the fifth solo album from IHSAHN. The album will be available on compact disc, a limited edition digibook (with expanded graphics and liner notes), and double 180-gram clear vinyl. Pre-orders are set to launch via online and physical retail outlets beginning September 10.

Das Seelenbrechen is a bold and adventurous recording that is a musical contrast to the progressive shades and saxophone augmentations of the former EMPEROR vocalist/guitarist’s previous two albums (2009’s After and 2011’s Eremita). The album exists in an entirely unfamiliar sonic world as IHSAHN draws upon his most esoteric influences, fully embracing the spirit of the avant-garde. Comprising ten vivid but disparate explorations in sound that range from bittersweet electronica to deranged and feral improvisation, Das Seelenbrechen is every bit as dark and destructive as the artist’s previous work but is far more disorientating and disturbing than anything he has attempted in his past.

“Musically this album is a very deliberate sidestep to what I have been doing; a necessity to reset the creative parameters so not to fall into formula,” shares IHSAHN. “I think I do my best work slightly outside of my comfort zone and I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time. Free form and improvisational can be scary for a musician but it is very liberating at the same time.”

Recorded at his own studio in Norway in collaboration with drummer Tobias Ornes Anderson (Leprous), Das Seelenbrechen courageously eschews traditional metal instrumentation in favor of a limitless textural landscape that evokes the freewheeling spirit of artists like Diamanda Galas, Scott Walker, and John Zorn. In discussing the album IHSAHN notes, “even though my music has changed over the years, I feel there is a source of inspiration at the bottom of it all that is constant. The general idea for this album was to try and dig deep into this raw source and express it without too much refinery and do so within a less familiar musical landscape. It is the reason for several purely improvised songs and parts on this album. I spontaneously performed with just lyrics and the idea of the atmosphere I was wishing to create. While many will feel it sounds different, I don’t think it is necessarily different from my previous album. And in my head, it will fit in perfectly with my plans for the sixth album.”

Das Seelenbrechen takes its name from Nietzche’s famed Human, All Too Human: A Book of Free Spirits. Writings by the 19th century philosopher and other historical figures have often found their way into IHSAHN’s songwriting. “The title is taken from one of his aphorisms on art and how, in its purest form, is neither good nor bad,” says IHSAHN. The album’s abstract packaging, again conceived by Spanish graphic artist Ritxi Ostariz, embraces the aphorisms essence.

Few artists in modern heavy music have created such an extraordinary and unique body of work as IHSAHN. Having refined and redefined black metal with the now legendary EMPEROR, Norway’s foremost musical extremist has spent the last decade establishing himself as a fearless and wildly idiosyncratic solo artist. “Of all my albums, my goals for this one have been the most abstract. I’ve had quite a rollercoaster ride putting it together but now that it is done I must say I am very pleased.”

Track listing for Das Seelenbrechen is:

1. Hilber
2. Regen
3. NaCl
4. Pulse

Dead Letter Circus Announce American Release of New Album De Xavier le 25/08/2013 à 14:20

'The Catalyst Fire' w/ Bonus Tracks OUT OCTOBER 29TH VIA THE END RECORDS



When Dead Letter Circus blasted onto Australian airwaves in 2007, their bombastic yet nuanced take on alternative rock left most observers struggling to process what they were hearing. It was epic, it oozed confidence, it was intense and open all at once. It was the debut of a sound so fresh and unique that it was hard to classify.

Debut album This is the Warning hit #2 on the national Australian ARIA charts and spawned 6 radio singles, with 2 commercial crossover hits One Step and Cage being added to major networks, and the album being certified Gold. The Catalyst Fire is the follow up to Dead Letter Circus’ hit debut album and will be out on Tuesday October 29th via The End Records. Dead Letter Circus have spent the last nine months writing and recording their sophomore album with long-term producer and collaborator Forrester Savell. Comprising of 11 tracks, the album marks a clear progression of the traditional DLC sound, while retaining the energy and intensity they are known and loved for.

Dead Letter Circus are unlike any rock band to emerge in years. Watching someone on their first listen to alternative breakthroughs Dead Letter Circus searching to come up with a neat description is fascinating viewing… “It’s kind of like… no wait, it’s more of a… Wow, I have no idea what it is, but it’s different…”

Part of the beauty of the soaring, sing-a-long choruses, chiming atmospherics and delay soaked tones of Dead Letter Circus is their escape from easy classification via labels or scenes. But with a #2 record on debut that has now gone Gold, the message is clear – it’s music that resonates.

With the last 4 national tours SOLD OUT, the band’s videos getting international airplay, and huge stadium shows with Muse and Linkin Park, in 2011 the band lit up the main stage of the Big Day Out outdoor mega-festivals, and scored two songs in the world-famous triple j Hottest 100 Poll. More recently, DLC were voted into triple j’s Hottest Australian Albums of All Time, toured the USA three times, played SxSW, sold out shows in the UK, were voted as one of Red Bull’s Top 11 Rock Acts, a host of US rock and college radio stations jumped onboard, and Total Guitar UK ranked them in their Best Guitar Albums of the Year.

American Sharks Premiere Official Video For Overdrive On Noisey/VICEDe Xavier le 25/08/2013 à 14:13



AMERICANS SHARKS have premiered their new video for "Overdrive" via Noisey. Taken off of their upcoming, self titled full length debut from The End Records which will be released on 9/17, the video was filmed in their native stomping grounds of Austin and pays homage to the 80's cult classic film Repo Man. Directed by Daniel Cummings, and with the treatment done from band manager Kyle Shutt of The Sword, the video captures the band where they shine brightest, at a raging beer fueled house party.

Says Shutt: "When I first heard American Sharks' music, I immediately thought that any of their songs could have been on the soundtrack to Repo Man, so I wanted to make their video an homage to that classic. Having a shoestring budget, we got four kegs and a mountain of veggie dogs and threw a house party that was almost too out of control to film. By the time we wrapped, the house was a wreck, Nick had almost burned the patio down with the BBQ pit, and I couldn't even tell you how many laws we had broken. I wouldn't have done it any other way, and I think we ended up with a solid video."

AMERICAN SHARKS will be wrapping up their current outing with The Sword and Castle and will be embarking on a national tour next month including an opening spot for the legendary Godflesh at Irving Plaza in New York City on October 19th followed by an tour with Clutch and The Sword.

CRONIAN announce new album's title and release dateDe Xavier le 25/08/2013 à 14:10

Scandinavian progressive unit CRONIAN, the brainchild of Norwegian black metal masterminds Øystein G. Brun (BORKNAGAR) and Vintersorg (VINTERSORG, BORKNAGAR), has revealed details about their forthcoming new record. The new album, the band's third, is titled "Erathems", and will hit the stores on November 8th via the Season of Mist Underground Activists division.

“We have just finished up the third album and I don't even slightly blush when arguing out loud that it is the very pinnacle of my fairly long musical career." Øystein comments. "Musically and production-wise, it almost feels like a leap up and into another division. Mr. V (Vintersorg) and I have been working intensely and fully isolated over the last six months with this bastard of an album and we firmly regard this as our most catchy, aggressive, atmospheric and darken flavoured effort to date. I am pretty sure this album will blow the socks off of all those who liked our previous releases, as well as fans of BORKNAGAR, VINTERSORG and likewise...Cheers!”

“A new album has left our “systems” and is now finding its path throughout the world", adds Vintersorg. "It has surely been a great journey to write, record and complete this third album in the CRONIAN chronicle. The music finally matches our vision is and it’s been an intense period for me and Øystein to really get there...Even if the music has been taking its path out of our bodies, it is still lingering in our minds… It’s stuck… And it feels just great. We’re so proud of this album and it’s just a pleasure to be reminded all the time of what a trip this has been.”

Danko Jones featured in Kick-Ass 2

Friday the 16th sees the official premiere of Kick-Ass 2 and with a cast including Jim Carrey this time around it is predicted to be an even bigger success than the much heralded first movie.

It is with great pride we can now announce that one of the most significant scenes in the film is played out to the sound of the classic Danko Jones song “Dance” – off their 2003 album “We Sweat Blood”. This follows a long line of prominent placements for the band – including songs featured in True Blood, CSI:NY and EA Sports NHL 2011 to name a few.

Needless to say, the song is also included on the movie’s official soundtrack and was also the musical theme of the film’s first trailer:

SAINT VITUS stream unreleased track via Pitchfork!De Xavier le 15/08/2013 à 11:48

Heavy/Doom metal progenitors SAINT VITUS are streaming one of the bonus tracks from their forthcoming reissue of 'C.O.D.' The bonus track, titled "The Chameleon" is streaming now at Pitchfork .

Regarding the unreleased track, guitarist Dave Chandler said, "I sent our U.S. label (at the time ) the tracks “The Chameleon” and “To Breed A Soldier” that I wrote with Christian (Linderson). The label did not like the direction the album was going and that really pissed us off. I scrapped everything I was working on and told Christian that things were not working out, so he left and went back home to Sweden.

The two bonus songs on the reissue weren't actually written for the C.O.D. Both were written after C.O.D. was released, and were intended to be demo tracks for the next SAINT VITUS album. As they were the only other recordings from the era with Christian, we decided to put them out on the C.O.D. re-issue"

The re-issues of 'COD' and ‘Die Healing’ will be available on CD, limited-edition double LP, and colored vinyl gatefold LPs. 'Remastered and enhanced with two previously unreleased bonus tracks, ‘C.O.D.’ features COUNT RAVEN’s Christian Linderson on vocals, while ‘Die Healing’ sees original SAINT VITUS singer Scott Reagers return to the mic. All formats can be pre-ordered here and are scheduled to be released this Friday, August 16th across the world (August 20th in North America).

SAINT VITUS recently streamed two songs off 'Die Healing' and 'C.O.D." The tracks, "One Mind" and "Children of Doom" can be found here.

SAINT VITUS previously released 'Lillie: F-65'. The album, their first in 17 years, reunites the unmistakable guitar playing of co-founder Dave Chandler with the deeply resonate vocals of hard rock legend Scott “Wino” Weinrich. 'Lillie: F-65' is streaming at the official SAINT VITUS Bandcamp page.

SAINT VITUS is available for interviews upon request. Updated SAINT VITUS news and tour information will be made available at the Season of Mist website and the SAINT VITUS website, Facebook, and Myspace pages.

“ ...the boys are on fire here, flush with renewed energy and basking in the glow of their newfound power." - Pitchfork

"This sick behemoth of a sound - and patented strangled-cat guitar solos - could only come from one band, and that's a window into why Lillie: F-65 succeeds as a whole: the Saint Vitus Character remains intact, never fucked-up with modern contrivances. Doubtful that Sabbath's own 2012 comeback will be even a faction this good.” -Decibel

“'s clear that their chops have only increased in the intervening years, and they certainly haven't lost their ability to bring dynamics to a slothful subgenre.” - Outburn

“ ...Vitus shows the enduring significance of their approach, and that what proved true about them in their initial run is no less true now: By not being of their era, they were and remain timeless. ...Saint Vitus are more relevant now than they’ve ever been, and Lillie: F-65 shows a good deal of why. No doubt one of 2012’s landmark albums. Highly recommended.” - The Obeslisk

Season of Mist signs CRONIAN!De Xavier le 30/05/2013 à 08:18

Season of Mist is proud to welcome Scandinavian dark progressive act CRONIAN! The band is none other than the union of BORKNAGAR mastermind Øystein G. Brun with Mr. V, also known as Vintersorg, who also happens to be a key member of BORKNAGAR.

I am so excited and honoured to join forces with Season of Mist for future albums with CRONIAN!”, Øystein comments. “We have just finished up the third album and I don't even slightly blush when arguing out loud that it is the very pinnacle of my fairly long musical career. Musically and production-wise, it almost feels like a leap up and into another division. Mr. V and I have been working intensely and fully isolated over the last six months with this bastard of an album and we firmly regard this as our most catchy, aggressive, atmospheric and darken flavoured effort to date. I am pretty sure this album will blow the socks off of all those who liked our previous releases, as well as fans of BORKNAGAR, VINTERSORG and likewise. So being able to work with one of the most credible, passionate and professional labels around makes my day - and make us proud! So excited to get this album out! Cheers!

Mr V adds: “A new album has left our “systems” and is now finding its path throughout the musical world. It has surely been a great journey to write, record and complete this third album in the CRONIAN chronicle. The music finally matches our vision is and it’s been an intense period for me and Øystein to really get there. We’re also very pleased to now enter the relationship with Season of Mist to get this album out. Even if the music has been taking its path out of our bodies, it is still lingering in our minds… It’s stuck… And it feels just great. We’re so proud of this album and it’s just a pleasure to be reminded all the time of what a trip this has been.

EPHEL DUATH finishing work on new album; first details revealed!De Xavier le 28/05/2013 à 22:41

Next July, experimental metallers EPHEL DUATH will return to Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida. Together with producer Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Goathwhore, Hate Eternal) the band will complete the recording sessions for their new album started last February, and do the final mix. Alan Douches will master the songs at his West West Side Studios, NY.

EPHEL DUATH's new album will once again feature the incredible Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats, Kreator, Necorphagist) on drums, joined this time by his band mate Bryan Beller (The Aristocrats, Dethklok, Joe Satriani) on bass.

The recording line-up is as follow:

Davide Tiso - guitars
Karyn Crisis - vocals
Marco Minnemnn - drums
Bryan Beller - bass

Featuring 8 new songs and reaching over 55 minutes of total length, EPHEL DUATH's new album is a multilayered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock, blended together with a strong will to experiment and with no boundaries in sight.

"I wanted this album to be a strong statement" - comments Davide Tiso. "And I believe we achieved that. Every time I put together a release for Ephel Duath, I deal with it as if it was our last. Would I be OK to let this album be the band's last shout? Yes, I definitely would. I compose music to primarily please myself; doing it puts my mind in a very specific place, a spot where I feel fitting-in much, much better than in everyday life. Playing my guitar for Ephel Duath I get the peace and the release I need to keep myself going. I'm an avid metal listener but when I play for Ephel Duath I don't feel the need to bring my music to fit any parameters, at the same time I don't put any efforts whatsoever to sound different: I just let go and navigate."

"Songs are coming out effortlessly and quicker the older I get, and I believe that with this new album I reached the highest level of intensity of my entire musical career" - continues Davide. "Lyrically the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest."

Some of the new songs titles are: "Tracing the path of blood", "Feathers under my skin", "When mind escapes flesh".

EPHEL DUATH's new album will come out in the fall of 2013 on Agonia Records, it will be available in digital, CD and vinyl version.

THE MISSION sign with Oblivion/SPV for EuropeDe Xavier le 01/05/2013 à 11:24

Wayne Hussey - vocals
Craig Adams - bass
Simon Hinkler - guitar
Mike Kelly - drums

SPV are proud to announce the renewal of their contract with UK legends The Mission. Keeping busy with a worldwide tour in 2013, The Mission have sold over 4 million albums worldwide and just celebrated their 25th anniversary as a band in 2011. Presently, the band is recording their 12th studio album in a secluded residential studio in the heart of the UK. David M Allen (Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Sisters Of Mercy) is producing the album and comments, “It is a privilege and an honor to be working with The Mission on their new album. I’ve had many dealings with the band over the last 30 years that I have known them, and this chance to record with the original members is very special”. But the most exciting part of these plans – the whole process will be filmed for The Mission’s new documentary, which will be released next year.

from left to right: Craig Adams, Gero Herrde (A&R SPV), Simon Hinkler, Wayne Hussey, Mike Kelly, George Allen (management)

Says Wayne Hussey: "They say it's better the devil you know... and so... here we are once again, back signed to SPV for Europe (excluding France 'cos France is special, or at least they say they are...) and with a new Mission album in the works scheduled for release later in the year. My take on this is that we have a good relationship with the people at SPV (take a bow, Gero, take a bow) and, at my age when the candles cost more than the cake, I'd rather work with people I know and trust and who have been huge supporters of both myself and the band over the last 12 years or so - rather than try to forge new relationships with strange foreign types... SPV have been incredibly supportive of the band and we have successfully released our last 2 or 3 studio albums and a couple of DVD's with SPV and everyone has been happy. Why spill the apple cart? So, we're here again and again I'm looking forward to visiting the SPV offices in Hannover and going through the cupboards and seeing what is worth stealing. And if we ask for drugs, then laugh, and chop 'em out...Cheers!"

SPV A&R Gero Herrde adds: "All of us at SPV are incredibly proud to work together with The Mission on what will become another, if not THE, masterpiece of this groundbreaking band! If it wasn't for THE MISSION, people would be missing a whole collection of atmospheric gems that no other band would have been able to write. Being proud of their glorious past, yet always forward-looking at the same time, this band has proven at least several hundred times that they are second to none. And yes, I take more than ONE bow, Wayne!"

The new studio album by The Mission will be released in September 2013 via Oblivion/SPV in Europe and via The End Records in the US.


Katatonia are set to return with a special triple-LP vinyl release featuring an epic set of classics from the band's catalogue.

Released 17th June on Peaceville Records, 'Last Fair Day Gone Night' is presented on triple heavyweight 180gm vinyl in a deluxe box, with a 12 page 12" book.

Founding members Anders Nyström & Jonas Renkse are joined by long-time drummer Daniel Liljekvist along with recent members - namely guitarist Per Eriksson, plus recently recruited bassist Niklas Sandin - for an exhilarating night fuelled by a rich & extensive set of Katatonia tracks both past & present, including a special performance of the landmark 2001 album 'Last Fair Deal Gone Down’ in it's entirety.

Katatonia was formed in Sweden in 1991. Their debut album, ‘Dance of December Souls’, was released in 1993, gaining the band recognition for their eclectic brand of gothic doom/death metal. On future albums a newer, sleeker Katatonia sound came to the fore, starting with a streamlined & structured collection of melodic dark rock songs that became third album ‘Discouraged Ones’; the main evolution point for modern day Katatonia, where the band stand at the pinnacle of the dark & progressive rock genre.

Tony Stark, l'industriel flamboyant qui est aussi Iron Man, est confronté cette fois à un ennemi qui va attaquer sur tous les fronts.

Dos au mur, il ne peut plus compter que sur ses inventions, son ingéniosité, et son instinct pour protéger ses proches. Alors qu'il se jette dans la bataille, Stark va enfin découvrir la réponse à la question qui le hante secrètement depuis si longtemps : est-ce l'homme qui fait le costume ou bien le costume qui fait l'homme ?

Le film est réalisé par Shane Black sur un scénario de Drew Pearce et Shane Black, d'après le super-héros emblématique de Marvel, Iron Man, apparu pour la première fois dans le n° 39 de "Tales of Suspense" en 1963, et qui a eu son propre comic book à partir de mai 1968 avec le 1er numéro de "The Invincible Iron Man".

FREEDOM CALL more infos about anniversary best of album revealedDe Xavier le 07/04/2013 à 21:45


Melodic metal act Freedom Call’s balance sheet is certainly something to be proud of: the group surrounding vocalist/guitarist Chris Bay have released a total of seven studio albums (including their sensational debut Stairway To Fairyland) and two haunting live releases. Freedom Call are also ever-present live on the stage, having toured not only with the likes of Saxon, Edguy, Blind Guardian and Hammerfall, but also having played successful tours in their own right since 2010. The band performed more than 60 shows to support the release of their 2012 album Land Of The Crimson Dawn, among them 25 headliner shows all over Europe. Their exceedingly melodic songs are frequently referred to as “happy metal”, and indeed Freedom Call more than deserve the title of “Happiest Metal-Band In The World”. The release of Ages Of Light on 29 April 2013 (Germany: 26 April 2013, USA: 7 May 2013) is set to mark their 15th anniversary.

This full-to-the-brim best-of release includes 18 classics from their creative career to date, among them ‘We Are One’ from their 1999 debut, the anthemnic ‘Freedom Call’ off Crystal Empire (2001), ‘Warriors’ and ‘Land Of Light’ from their 2002 release Eternity, a live version of ‘Metal Invasion’ and the topical ‘Power & Glory’ off Land Of The Crimson Dawn (2012). “Those 18 numbers are usually celebrated at our gigs, or even requested with a vengeance,” explains Chris Bay, who has another real ace up his sleeve: the bonus CD Masqueraded presents six Freedom Call tracks in new and unusual guises: a ska version of ‘Metal-Invasion’, ‘Mr. Evil’ as a melodic reggae track, ‘Hero On Video’ as a speed ska number and ‘Rockin’ Radio’ (which is also supported by a video clip) in a killerbilly version. Masqueraded is complemented by ‘Freedom Call’ in campfire strumming style (including music sheet/tablature) and ‘Age Of The Phoenix’ in a power swing outfit. It would hardly be possible to present these tracks more colourfully or diverse. Bay: “Our intention with Masqueraded was to inspire musicians and music fans to create their own, personal version of one of our songs – irrespective of musical style – and send it to us.”

Ages Of Light combines not only the essence of the best songs from the seven Freedom Call studio recordings to date, but also marks a meeting of various former and current band members. Along with Chris Bay and guitarist Lars Rettkowitz, three different drummers can be heard on the bonus tracks: founder member Dan Zimmermann, his successors Klaus Sperling, and Ramy Ali, whom fans know from the most recent Freedom Call tour. The two bassists, Samy Saemann and original band member Ilker Ersin, and guitarist Cede Dupont, who was part of Freedom Call between 2001 and 2005, are also featured. “It was great fun to work with old and new friends alike at the studio, turning previously typical Freedom Call numbers into unusual songs,” Chris Bay explains, stressing that the group will commence working on a new studio album after the tour in spring 2013: “But first we want to celebrate our anniversary in style!”

ARTLANTICA signs worldwide deal with SPV De Xavier le 23/03/2013 à 09:52

(feat. Roger Staffelbach * John West * Mistheria * John Macaluso)

SPV / Steamhammer signed a worldwide deal with new melodic metal outfit ARTLANTICA.

Guitarist Roger Staffelbach says about the signing: "After all the blood, sweat and tears we've put into making that album, we're more than happy and excited to see our album getting released by one of worlds finest companies, SPV/Steamhammer. It's a true pleasure to work with Olly Hahn and all at SPV and we're confident that this is only the beginning. A big hello and thank you go out to Olly Hahn, all at SPV and Peter Knorn from our Management (UTM) for sharing our vision and making this happen."

A&R Steamhammer Olly Hahn ads: "What do we have here: great melodies, awesome guitar virtuosity and a tight band which knows how to play melodic metal how it should be. We are more than happy to welcome Artlantica to the SPV family!"

Great vocal melodies with anthemic potential, virtuoso guitar and keyboard passages including spectacular solos, in addition to a blistering rhythm section which gives the songs their pace, groove and dynamics: the very ingredients which guaranteed seven brilliant releases in ten years from the American-Swiss cult act Artension and caused a global stir on The End Of Never, the only album by Artension’s successor Angel Of Eden, also inspire listeners on Artlantica’s debut album Across The Seven Seas. Which doesn’t really come as a surprise: after all, Artlantica features three of the most important driving forces behind Angel of Eden in guitarist Roger Staffelbach, frontman John West and keyboardist Mistheria. In addition, Staffelbach and West (Artension, Royal Hunt) belonged to Artension (together with Vitalij Kuprij (now Trans-Siberian Orchestra), among others), and Mistheria has made a name for himself with his collaborations with Bruce Dickinson and Rob Rock. All three are without a doubt real masters of their trade who have combined their talents to present ten brilliant new songs. Staffelbach describes the result as “powerful, heavy occasionally majestic, grooving, melodious and timeless. Each instrument has its place, none of them sound too dominant, everything has only one purpose – to serve the song.” A perfect description of Across The Seven Seas.

Across The Seven Seas is a prime example of a diverse melodic metal album which combines compositional quality, great technical skill and charisma. Staffelbach comments enthusiastically about his two band colleagues: “John is a fantastic singer, everything he does is over the top, whether live or in the studio. An exceptionally gifted vocalist. It’s in his blood to write great melodies and turn songs into stories. Mistheria, on the other hand is a true artist by all means. I value his skills as a musician just as much as his gift for writing and arranging songs. We blend extremely well, in my opinion he’s one of the most accomplished keyboardists of our time.” Not forgetting Staffelbach himself, who has contributed countless significant impulses to his new band. His unmistakable songwriting and guitar playing, his signature guitar sound and playing style, his persistence and ability to get projects off the ground and produce albums that have been and continue to be the base for the existence of Artension and now Artlantica with their furious debut album.

Staffelbach, West and Mistheria enjoy an excellent reputation among their colleagues and can pick and choose when it comes to selecting their guest musicians: Across The Seven Seas features Dani Löble (Helloween) and John Macaluso (Malmsteen, TNT, Ark) on drums, the bass parts were recorded by Bass Icon Steve DiGiorgio (Sadus, Testament), who also worked with Artension and Angel Of Eden previously. And last but by no means least, Artlantica succeeded in enlisting none less than Chris Caffery of Savatage/Trans-Siberian Orchestra as their guest guitarist. The result of this high-calibre collaboration was mixed and mastered at Tommy Newton‘s (Helloween, Gamma Ray, among others) Area 51 studios, Newton also adding his extensive expertise.

So the world is eagerly awaiting a new band with its experienced members who have never sounded this good before in this formation. As Roger Staffelbach puts it so aptly: “Artlantica‘s music is gritty, excellently produced and absolutely song-oriented. But first and foremost this band consists of musicians who commit to themselves and really want to go for it with this band.” That’s exactly the kind of determination that comes across on Across The Seven Seas!

Tracklisting of "Across The Seven Seas":

1. 2012 04.00
2. Devout 04:36
3. Across The Seven Seas 04:53
4. You`re Still Away 05:19
5. Ode To My Angel 03:54
6. Fight For The Light 04:21
7. Demon In My Mind 04:37
8. Return Of The Pharaoh Pt.3 05:43
9. Heresy 04:49
10. Nightmare Life 05:25

The debut album "Across The Seven Seas" will be released through SPV / Steamhammer in Germany on May 24th, in Europe on May 27th and in the US/Canada on June 4th (new) as CD and download (incl. 1 bonus track "Stormbringer").

TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY premiers "Acid Overlord" songDe Xavier le 27/02/2013 à 23:18

Italy’s Southern/Hard Rock act TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY has premièred "Acid Overlord" - second song off the debut album entitled "Ruralizer", coming out March 12th in Europe and April 16th in North America on Agonia Records.

Music of TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY is a classic blend of feisty Stoner/Southern Rock and Doom Metal, with catchy guitar solos and old-school heavy metal parts that may remind of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Corrosion Of Conformity, Pride and Glory, Down, Black Sabbath, or even ZZ Top. Apart from Hard Rock instruments, the band uses also a banjo and Hammond organs.

The album will feature guest appearances by electric guitar virtuoso Mario Percudani (HungryHeart, Mitch Malloy), Hammond maestro Paolo "Apollo" Negri (Wicked Minds, Black Widow, Hasselvander) and Razor SK (Forgotten Tomb).

Joe Hasselvander (ex-Pentagream / The Hounds Of Hasselvander) commented on the release: "Absolutely cool! Good old swamp infested blues metal!"

"Ruralizer" will consist of 8 original songs and a cover of Mountain's "Mississippi Queen" with a playing time of almost 50 minutes. The album will be made available on Digipack CD and digital download. "Ruralizer" was recorded at Elfo Studios by Daniele Mandelli who is also in charge of mix and mastering.

The band commented: "We're very proud of how the album came out and we strongly believe it's the perfect way to begin our legacy. People into heavy, ballsy southern-tinged Hard Rock should take note!"

2. Acid Overlord
3. Graveyard Blues
4. Hellfire Rodeo
5. Ruralizer
6. Bite The Dust (and bleed)

Los Disidentes del Sucio Motel, quintet de Stoner Rock strasbourgeois, sortiront leur deuxième album intitulé « Arcane » sur le label ariègeois de rock très amplifié Deadlight Entertainment.

Locomotive de l’esthétique Stoner Rock en France, 2012 a été une année charnière pour la carrière du groupe qui, entre autres, a ouvert les Eurockéennes de Belfort, a participé au très atypique Génériq Festival et a été sélectionné parmi les lauréats SFR Jeunes Talents.

Accompagné sur scène de son désormais célèbre Sheriff, le groupe prépare sa tournée française pour l’automne 2013.

ESCAPE THE FATE, nouvel album le 14 mai. Premier single en ligne !De Xavier le 18/02/2013 à 23:46


C’est donc le 14 mai prochain que les rois de l’underground rock, Escape The Fate sortiront « Ungrateful » leur quatrième album studio sur Eleven Seven Music, leur nouvelle maison de disques (distribuée par EMI en France)

La chanson titre est d’ores et déjà disponible ICI

Le clip de ce premier single sera présenté début mars. Cette vidéo puissante et émouvante sera illustrée par des images assez brutales liées à des histoires d’intimidation et d’abus… Un sujet important qui touche profondément le groupe.

« Ungrateful » marque une importante étape dans la carrière d’Escape The Faith. Les musiciens ont particulièrement travaillé sur ces nouvelles compositions, au sein desquelles l’intensité de la musique est combinée des chœurs enflammés. Il parait clair qu’une très large frange des fans de rock vont y trouver leur compte.

L’album est co-produit par John Feldman (Papa Roach, Black Veil Brides), Monte Money et Brandon Saller (Atreyu), alors que le mixage a été confié à Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira, Avenged Sevenfold).

A noter que la version deluxe de « Ungrateful » présentera un DVD du concert gratuit que le groupe a donné le 6 janvier dernier au The Roxy à Los Angeles.

Originaire des Las Vegas, Nevada, Escape The Fate se compose de Craig Mabbitt (chant), Monte Money (guitare), Robert Ortiz (batterie), TJ Bell (basse) et Michael Money (guitare).

DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, nouvel album en mai !De Xavier le 18/02/2013 à 23:40

Groupe pionnier, dont l’énergie créative et artistique fait des ravages auprès des connaisseurs depuis la fin des années 1990, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN est paré pour lancer son cinquième album, un disque qui va, une fois de plus, déchaîner les passions !

Intitulé « One of Us is the Killer », ce nouvel opus sortira en mai sur Party Smasher Inc., le propre label du groupe, en partenariat avec BMG sur l’Europe. Il a principalement été enregistré en Californie sous la direction du producteur Steve Evetts (Glassjaw, The Cure, Suicide Silence), ainsi que dans le studio du guitariste/co-fondateur, Ben Weinman. Alors que le mastering a été confié à Tom Baker (Deftones, Nine Inch Nails, Beastie Boys).

« One of Us is the Killer » est une étape importante dans la carrière de THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, groupe en perpétuelle évolution, qui vient juste d’annoncer les premières dates de sa prochaine tournée mondiale.

La marque de fabrique de ce groupe hors normes est ahurissante de créativité. Sorte d’escalade sonore associant à la fois metal, rock, ambiances expérimentales et mélodies.

Tout a commencé en 1997 avec un EP de 6 titres sortie sur Now Or Never Records, un label indépendant, rapidement suivi en 1998 par « Under the Running Board », un autre EP sorti chez Relapse. Déjà impressionnant sur disque, dans le même temps, le groupe se forge une sérieuse réputation scénique en pulvérisant tout sur son passage lors de concerts dantesques !

En 1999, « Calculating Infinity », leur premier véritable album, devient la référence de l'émergence du mouvement « math-core » / « math-metal ». Un œuvre hallucinante qui a gagné sa place dans le « Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time » de l’auteur/journaliste Martin Popoff. De son côté, le célèbre magazine anglais Kerrang l’a classé dans les « 100 Best Rock Albums of All Time » et a offert au groupe le trophée du Spirit of Independence !

En 2002, suite à l’invitation de Mike Patton sur une tournée avec Mr. Bungle, DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN collabore avec le chanteur le temps d’un EP intitulé « Irony is a Dead Scene » qui sort sur Epitaph Records.

Deux an plus tard, en 2004, « Miss Machine » ouvre grand les portes sur de nouveaux horizons et cèle la réputation internationale du groupe qui enchaine de saisissantes prestations dans de nombreux festivals. Ce disque est une démonstration de l’incroyable complicité créatrice qui s’est installée entre Ben Weinman (élu parmi les « 100 plus grands guitaristes de tous les temps » dans Spin Magazine, les « 10 meilleurs guitar Slinger » dans AP et dans le Top 25 des « guitaristes cultes » de Guitar World) et le chanteur Greg Puciato, dont la polyvalence vocale ne connaît aucune limite, tout comme sa présence sur scène. Ça n’est pas par hasard si Revolver Magazine l’a inclus dans sa liste des meilleurs « Metal Frontmen » de tous les temps.

En 2007 « Ire Works », THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN fait sa première TV nationale aux USA à l’occasion du Late Night with Conan O'Brien, et d’enchaine plusieurs tournées internationales dont le Soundwave Festival en Australie où Nine Inch Nails les invite à jouer « Wish. » C’est un fait, les mecs de Dillinger adorent collaborer sur scène ou en studio avec d’autres musiciens tels que les membres de System Of A Down, Mastodon, Jane's Addiction, Deftones, Kimbra, Wyclef Jean, Puscifer, Mars Volta ou Devin Townsend, pour n’en citer que quelques uns… A cela il ne faut pas oublier de mentionner les illustrations sonores signées Weinman pour différents films.

Réalisé en 2010, « Option Paralysis » est le premier disque à sortir sur Party Smasher Inc. (en distribution sur Season Of Mist). Il permet au groupe de recevoir le Golden Gods award du « Best Underground Band » de la part de Revolver Magazine, alors que l’émission Metal Evolution (diffusée sur VH1) qualifie DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN de « groupe le plus dangereux de la planète »

Sur « One of Us is the Killer » l’on retrouve le duo de choc Weinman, Puciato, ainsi que le bassiste Liam Wilson et le batteur Billy Rymer au top de leur forme. Fidèle à sa farouche indépendance, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN met la loyauté de ses individualités au service d’une vision musicale unique !

C’est indéniable, une nouvelle ère commence maintenant pour THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN !

Dans les semaines qui viennent vous recevrez plus d’informations sur ce nouvel album ainsi que sur les concerts qui vont l’accompagner.

Party Smasher Inc. est bien entendu destiné à être le théâtre des sorties innovatrices de Dillinger, mais aussi des autres projets du groupe et de ses membres...

APOLLINE : Le rock a un nouveau visage (M&O music)De Tiphaine le 27/01/2013 à 14:21

Formé fin 2011, le groupe Apolline se compose de cinq musiciens, tous issus de la scène rock. C'est dès leur première rencontre que la puissance et l'originalité de la musique d'Apolline voit le jour. Il est impossible de passer à côté de la voix d'Arthur Navellou, imprégné par des chanteurs tel que Bertrand Cantat (Noir Désir), Jim Morrison (The Doors). Nous invitant, par ses textes, à se redécouvrir sois-même, redécouvrir le monde, tantôt en anglais et en français. Le tout porté par des mélodies accrocheuses et envoutantes.

Apolline rappelle l'efficacité brut du rock anglo-saxon actuel (Muse, Foo Fighter) mais reste attachée à de solides bases 70's (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd). Les lourds riffs de guitare savent aussi faire place à des ambiances plus pops, voir progressives (Incubus, Coldplay, Archive).

Sortie du premier EP 4 titres en avril 2012 intitulé « l'Accidentelle ». Enregistré et mixé par Fred Norguet (Lofofora, Ez3kiel... ) au studio Kalamoprod.

Juin 2012, Apolline signe sous le label M & O MUSIC, distribution ANTICRAFT/MVS pour leur premier album « No Longer Rain » , sortie prévue en mars 2013.

KVELERTAK SIGNE CHEZ ROADRUNNER ! Nouvel album le 25 mars - en concert à Paris (Glaz'Art) le 15 marsDe Tiphaine le 27/01/2013 à 13:31

NEW YORK, NY (JANUARY 25, 2013) – Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce the signing of Norwegian adrenaline-pushers of heavy rock and roll, Kvelertak.

Kvelertak is Erlend Hjelvik (vocals), Vidar Landa (guitars), Bjarte Lund Rolland (guitars), Maciek Ofstad (guitars), Marvin Nygaard (bass) and Kjetil Gjermundrød (drums).


Produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, Kvelertak will release their highly anticipated sophomore album entitled Meir (which means “more” in English) on March 25, 2013. Their first single, “Bruane Brenn” has early critical acclaim from several tastemaker outlets including Stereogum who raves, “It’s a total blast of riffs, adrenaline, football chants, and guitar solos, and in its four minutes, you get five decades of rock ‘n’ roll, compressed into one massive speedball hit.”

Meir Track Listing:
1. Åpenbaring
2. Spring Fra Livet
3. Trepan
4. Bruane Brenn
5. Evig Vandrar
6. Snilepisk
7. Månelyst
8. Nekrokosmos
9. Undertro
10. Tordenbrak
11. Kvelertak

Single “Bruane Brenn” out FEBRUARY 5th

The single will be available on iTunes beginning February 5, 2013 and will be available as an instant download when you pre-order the album, an exclusive CD/T-shirt bundle will also be available that day at the Roadrunner Records webstore. Unlike the majority of heavier bands, they sing in their native language, adding even more character to their already unique sound.

Kvelertak’s euphorically-received self-titled 2011 debut was iTunes 2011’s US Metal Breakthrough Artist of The Year. Pitchfork described their sound as having “monolithic walls of adrenal-gland-strangling sound” while LA Weekly named frontman Erland Hjelvik #2 on their list of top ten metal frontmen (and women) under 30.
