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.

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'!

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.

SERIOUS BLACKDe Xavier le 25/08/2017 à 19:38

„The Witch Of Caldwell Town“ lyric video available
„Magic“ album out now!

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 De Xavier le 22/08/2017 à 21:59

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."

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.

The band's seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel, Vengeful Ascension was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome). A sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band's signature brand of audio venom, Vengeful Ascension finds its members at their most accomplished both individually and as a cohesive unit. Guitarist Sammy Duet's dense, sub nuclear riff work and possessed solo blitzes are at their most devastating, spiraling flawlessly and instinctually around drummer Zack Simmons' and bassist James Harvey's hammering rhythms, with front-man Ben Falgoust's distinctly commanding roar, his acidic prose more enunciated than ever before, complimenting the apocalyptic proceedings.

Frontman Tobias Sammet states: "Whilst collecting all of this picture material together we were once again made aware of how proud we are of what we have created. There are probably not many musicians who are lucky enough to be able to look back on a 25-year-old band history at the end of their thirties. And especially without any line-up changes in the last 20 years! This is even more incredible considering that we're not from Birmingham, New York or a German metropolis but from a small town called Fulda, a place where you normally only know about the insights of the music business by hearsay. I mean, as kids we started to play Edguy shows even before we had visited concerts as fans ourselves! Then we started to play shows outside our home town, then outside Germany and all of a sudden we found ourselves touring in Asia, America and Australia on a regular basis, because apparently there were people who liked our music. And they became more and more. For us, this always felt quite normal, the next step was all that mattered. We didn’t think about what happened while things were happening...

But if you look back now, you will realise how lucky we were! It's now time to celebrate our anniversary with our fans. We'll celebrate our quarter century with the release of »Monuments« and LIVE in some selected cities! We'll perform a best-of set list, a journey throughout our past, with a lot of fuss and at full throttle! The first quarter century is over and we want to honour these years with our fans! To the next 25 years!"

GOATWHORE News : Nouveau single "Mankind Will Have No Mercy"De Xavier le 22/06/2017 à 23:13



Mankind Will Have No Mercy" is the latest single from New Orleans metal legion Goatwhore. The punishing hymn comes by way of the band's anticipated new full-length, Vengeful Ascension, set for worldwide release this Friday, June 23rd, via Metal Blade Records.


Check out the audio menace of "Mankind Will Have No Mercy" at: http://metalblade.com/goatwhore

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

--Digipak CD
--Limited "spell book" edition including two CDs (limited to 3000 copies)
--180g black vinyl
--clear/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies - EU exclusive)
--sepia/white-splatter vinyl (limited to 200 copies - EU exclusive)
--violet-red marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies - EU exclusive)
--Clear with black and white swirls (limited to 1500 copies - US exclusive)
--sepia-marbled vinyl (limited to 100 copies - US exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!



The band's seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois near Champaign with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome).


In a near-perfect 9.5/10 rating, Metal Assault writes, "With their consistent, exclusive, unbridled sound, they leave a lasting impression... they prove just honest, pure heavy metal can still be a thing. It's bands like this that give hope and power to the metal scene. This album is inspiring and one to put on repeat." Heavy Blog Is Heavy concurs, "Goatwhore have eclipsed their previous work by creating an expansive and involving album that is as heavy as it is musically diverse and unusually catchy." While Team Rock calls it, "...the most mature recording in the Goatwhore canon," furthering, "Its combination of disparate subgenres from opposite ends of the structural and melodic continuum is masterful, resulting in a remarkably non-contrasting display of good and evil; that being good songs that sound as evil as all hell."


Elsewhere the sentiment echoes. Metal Wani hails another, "perfectly-sculpted Goatwhore masterpiece of raw aggressiveness and the band's classic instrumentals." New Noise Magazine gushes, "'Vengeful Ascension' is Goatwhore's most diverse and interesting work to-date. The band proves that they can do more than just shred away from beginning to end, but build upon their foundation to introduce deeper chemistry...The record is one of those works that taps into the vein of human existence, and unleashes it in devastating heavy metal fashion." Metal Insider notes, "There's no filler here. It's fast, sometimes slow, painfully brutal yet also restrained where needed... Their live show proves to everyone that these guys are for real and there's no dependency on pro-tools and gimmicks. They record 'track to tape' so any fakery is thrown out the window. It's like the opposite of Instagram. It's pure sweat equity with these guys year after year and it pays off."


Goatwhore is currently ravaging stages through the USA and Canada on a near-three-week headlining tour with Vancouver metallers, Anciients. The tour commenced June 9th and will run through July 1st. The band's latest journey comes in advance of their previously announced North American fall takeover supporting UK-based metal icons Venom Inc. "The Blood Stained Earth Tour" will pillage twenty-eight cities from September 1st through October 2nd. Additional support will be provided by Portland punk thrashers Toxic Holocaust and Ohio deathcore unit The Convalescence

A sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band's signature brand of audio venom, Vengeful Ascension finds its members at their most accomplished - both individually and as a cohesive unit. Guitarist Sammy Duet's dense, sub nuclear riff work and possessed solo blitzes are at their most devastating, spiraling flawlessly and instinctually around drummer Zack Simmons' and bassist James Harvey's hammering rhythms with front-man Ben Falgoust's distinctly commanding roar, his acidic prose more enunciated than ever before, complimenting the apocalyptic proceedings.

Der Weg einer Freiheit De Xavier le 21/06/2017 à 23:47


Der Weg einer Freiheit stream second new track

DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT are unveiling the second track taken from their forthcoming fourth album, 'Finisterre'. The new masterpiece of the rising German black metal stars will be released on August 25th.

The instrumental, 'Skepsis Part I' :



Frontman Nikita Kamprad comments on behalf of the band: "We are delighted to present the first half of our full 'Skepsis' opus, which is completing the picture that started to emerge, when we premiered 'Skepsis Part II' last month. It did not seem a good idea to introduce our new full-length, 'Finisterre' with an instrumental, but now its time has come. Instrumentals have always played an important role on our albums and this one makes no exception. 'Skepsis Part I' comes with a more complex and progressive composition in comparison with the rather straight-forward and aggressive second part. Although both are separate tracks, we see them as connected and forming one single epic piece. Hopefully, you will like it as much as we do."

DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT have previously released the artwork and track-list of 'Finisterre', which can both 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.

CANNABIS CORPSEDe Xavier le 21/06/2017 à 23:41


CANNABIS CORPSE premiere "Chronic Breed"

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

The song "Chronic Breed"



Frontman Landphil comments: "At long last, CANNABIS CORPSE has come out of its weed induced slumber to bring all head bangers out there a new slab of brutal death metal. This time round, we decided to give our new guitarist Ray Suhy a lot more room to add his own unique flavour to the song writing and riffs. We think what has come out is a fresh sound for CANNABIS CORPSE."

Guitarist Ray Suhy adds: "The track 'Chronic Breed' was one of the last that we wrote for 'Left Hand Pass'. We changed this one a couple of times before we got it to flow the way that we wanted it. Hallhammer laid down some killer drum parts and Landphil's vocals are some of my favourite that he's ever done. There's lots of catchy and brutal moments on this record and 'Chronic Breed' is one of my top candidates!"
CANNABIS CORPSE are furthermore releasing 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'!

Native Construct's Myles Yang launches "Music with Myles": a new series of instructional music theory videos



Myles Yang - guitarist of Boston, MA based progressive act Native Construct - has just launched a new series of instructional music theory videos, entitled "Music with Myles". To watch the first episode ("How to make interesting Chord Progressions with Modal Interchange"), please visit:




Myles comments: "I've been really surprised by the scarcity of quality instructional music theory content on the Internet. In my eyes, music is a repository of fun and useful concepts that are just begging to be shared -- particularly in a neat, digestible package. Music with Myles is an experiment in just that. If the people seem interested in the idea, there will be more to follow, so let me know! This first episode is geared toward a more advanced audience, but feel free to ask any questions in the comments, and to request topics for me to cover in the future."

Native Construct is currently in the midst of writing their sophomore album for Metal Blade Records. Hailed as a "masterpiece" by HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com (5/5), their debut, Quiet World, was largely self-produced and written between 2011 and 2013, when the individual band members weren't busy with their studies at the Berklee College of Music. What began as jam sessions simply for fun eventually turned into a full-fledged musical endeavor. In addition to securing multiple national tours, including a full USA trek with Between the Buried and Me, Native Construct also debuted on the Billboard charts (#56 Hard Music Albums Chart; #85 New Artist Chart) with Quiet World.

MERRIMACK are now revealing the second crushing song taken from their forthcoming fifth full-length, which bears the title 'Omegaphilia' and will be released on June 9th.

The track "The Falsified Son"



MERRIMACK comment: "Our will to create a record that is more rooted in the 90's era of black metal becomes pretty obvious on 'The Falsified Son', which is a straight forward and simple track. Our typical lead guitars, the slightly dissonant end, the addition of a guitar solo, and the mid-tempo middle break make it a strong tune, which has proved to be very well received at our latest live performances. The lyrics deal with the way of life that we have chosen and its consequences – with black metal (which is mentioned in the song) being an immense part of it."

MERRIMACK have previously unveiled the cover art (by Dehn Sora) and track-list of 'Omegaphilia', which can both be viewed below.



Track-list
1. Cauterizing Cosmos
2. The Falsified Son
3. Apophatic Weaponry
4. Gutters of Pain
5. Sights in the Abysmal Lure
6. Cesspool Coronation
7. At the Vanguard of Deception

Musicians as any artists can be roughly categorised into different groups by their approach to composing. There are those for example, who come with restless souls and always try to find new ways and break into uncharted territories. Others prefer to evolve within a certain genre, driven by a desire to hone their skills and striving to bring their art to perfection. MERRIMACK as black metal traditionalists obviously belong to the latter circle and their fifth full-length with the apocalyptic title 'Omegaphilia' is an impressive demonstration of how far the French band has matured.

MERRIMACK are breathing fresh life into an exhausted genre, not by heaping up epithets such as progressive, post-, and avant-garde, but by razor-sharp songwriting, captivating melodies, and close to perfect arrangements. 'Omegaphilia' achieves excellence through hard work and experience that shows through on every single song.

MERRIMACK were founded by guitarist Perversifier in 1994 with a clear vision to keep the black metal flame burning as an act of aesthetic terrorism – as adamantly based in the underground as opposed to any attempts to co-opt, commercialise, or turn the style into a self-parody.

With a number of demo recordings ('Prologue' - 1995, 'Act 1' - 1995, 'Horns Defeat Thorns' - 2001) and split releases (with Hirilorn in 1998 and Sargeist in 2002), the French gained respect in the scene by remaining true to their words. Although MERRIMACK decided to reach out to a larger audience with the release of their first full-length 'Ashes of Purification' (2002), the Parisians did not sever their roots with the underground at any time.

'Of Entropy and Life Denial' (2006) and 'Grey Rigorism' (2009) followed and witnessed MERRIMACK closing ranks with the most influential, active, and authentic acts of the French black metal scene. Their classic combination of harsh sound with epic structures appealed to critics and fans alike and put the band on their celebrated first US tour with MARDUK and NACHTMYSTIUM in 2009.

Following the recording of 'The Acausal Mass' (2012) again in the legendary Necromorbus Studio (WATAIN, DESTRÖYER 666), MERRIMACK embarked on a European tour with Norwegian icons MAYHEM and accepted invitations to prestigious festivals such as Hellfest in their native France, Germany's Party-San Open Air and Summer Breeze and Montreal's Messe des Morts in Canada.

Having firmly established their black name and message around the globe, MERRIMACK are setting a bold exclamation mark with 'Omegaphilia'. Be warned, this album is determined to remain in your playlist for a long time.

MONTE PITTMAN News / Vidéo " Obliterated"De Xavier le 20/04/2017 à 22:41



Having released his new album, Inverted Grasp of Balance, last year via Metal Blade Records, Monte Pittman is now launching a performance video for the album track "Obliterated", featuring drummer Richard Christy and bassist Billy Sheehan (both of whom played on the album). To watch "Obliterated" (with footage of Billy Sheehan from the album's recording sessions), please visit: https://youtu.be/tBOYhLCputg

There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles. With his fourth full-length, Inverted Grasp of Balance, he has once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution, undoubtedly expanding his devout - and ravenous - fan base. The record also features powerhouse drummer Richard Christy of Charred Walls Of The Damned/Iced Earth/Death fame and virtuoso bassist Billy Sheehan, famous for his work with a plethora of talented artists - including David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and, more recently, Winery Dogs. The skill of all concerned explodes from the speakers!


SVARTSYN reveal new song and album detailsDe Xavier le 19/04/2017 à 23:51

Swedish black metal band SVARTSYN revealed details surronding its new album "In Death", which is set to be released on the 9th of June via Agonia Records. Listen to the first single titled "Seven Headed Snake"



"In Death" is the successor to "Black Testement" from 2013. The album was recorded in the Belgian Mortsella Studio in March and December 2016, and in January 2017. Mixing and mastering took place at Clintworks Studio (Amon Amarth, 3 Inches Of Blood, Misery Index). The cover artwork was created by Chadwick St John (Arckanum, Horna, The Piper graphic novel).

SVARTSYN plays dark, grim and misanthropic black metal. The music operates from mid-paced to fast and sinister tempos, featuring a dynamic melodic range injected into an overall feeling of obscurity and brutality. Originally formed as Chalice in 1991, and renamed to SVARTSYN three years later, the band can be considered as a one man project led by Ornias. He sang and played all instruments on "In Death", except for drums. Along its career, the band put out a number of albums celebrated in the underground black metal scene, including the 1998 debut album "The True Legend".

Ornias commented: "The new record completes and combaines the Black Testament and the Nightmarish Sleep albums. My revelations. My deathwork".

Tracklist:
1. Seven Headed Snake
2. Dark Prophet
3. With Death
4. Inside The White Mask
5. Wilderness Of The Soul
6. Black Thrones Of Death
7. Exile In Death

Album formats:
- jewelcase CD,
- limited red LP and regular black LP,
- two different black t-shrts with white and silver/grey print.

Pre-orders are available in physical and digital formats.

Line-up:
Ornias - vocals, guitars and bass.
Hammerman - drums.

IGORRR NewsDe Xavier le 19/04/2017 à 23:47

On June 16th, Igorrr - the brainchild of French musician and eclectic composer Gautier Serre - will release their new album, Savage Sinusoid, via Metal Blade Records. On this record, electronic manipulations, accordion, saxophone, sitar, harpsichord, mandolin and strings sit comfortably alongside ruthless blastbeats, chunky riffs, death grunts and soaring operatic vocals - and as chaotic as this might sometimes seem, there is no lack of heart behind everything thundering from the speakers. To watch a behind-the-scenes video of the making of Savage Sinusoid, part 1 of the series can be viewed here:



A video for the album's first single, "ieuD", can also be viewed at: http://www.metalblade.com/igorrr/- where Savage Sinusoid can be pre-ordered in the following formats:
--Digipak CD
--pale skin clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies)
--cream/white splatter (limited to 200 copies - EU exclusive)
--golden yellow vinyl (limited to 100 copies - Bandcamp exclusive)
--tan-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies - US exclusive)
*exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Savage Sinusoid track-listing:
1. Viande
2. ieuD
3. Houmous
4. Opus Brain
5. Probleme d'emotion
6. Spaghetti Forever
7. Cheval
8. Apopathodiaphulatophobie
9. Va te foutre
10. Robert
11. Au Revoir

To realize Savage Sinusoid as a completely sample-free record, Serre reunited with vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec, along with drummer Sylvain Bouvier, and collaborated with more musicians than on any of his previous releases - one of those guests being Cattle Decapitation's Travis Ryan, who lends his vocals on "Cheval", "Apopathodiaphulatophobie" and "Robert". "Viande" also sees Teloch (Mayhem) contribute some guitar/bass work, while "Houmous" features accordionists Pierre Mussi and Adam Stacey (the latter of whom is in Secret Chiefs 3 - a project by Mr. Bungle's Trey Spruance). While Savage Sinusoid draws from a plethora of genres, Serre has no intention of baffling or alienating potential listeners. As he explains:"I just want to make the music I love, without asking myself if it's gonna be too complex or too far from what people like. I want to make the music which has sense to me, with no restrictions, like a big party with metalheads, electronics nerds, classical and baroque-heads and gypsy violinists getting drunk and joining together to bring the best of every genre."

Igorrr will give European fans their first taste of new songs this spring/summer, with more shows to be announced soon. See below for all dates!

DON JAMIESON News/ Nouveau titre "Weed, Cigs, Election 2016"De Xavier le 19/04/2017 à 23:40

On Friday (April 21st), former "That Metal Show" host and comedian Don Jamieson will release his new comedy album, Communication Breakdown, via Metal Blade Records. Recorded at The Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Communication Breakdown's title and cover come from Don's Rutgers University senior yearbook photo. Don explains: "My young nieces and nephews found the photo at my mom's house and starting texting me how funny it was, and when I saw it again after so many years, I agreed! I majored in communication, so it was just a matter of adding the 'Breakdown' to it, which is obviously something you never want to happen in comedy." For a preview of Communication Breakdown, the track "Weed, Cigs, Election 2016" can be heard at: metalblade.com/donjamieson - where the album can also be pre-ordered, and the previously released track, "Kiefer", can be streamed.

Communication Breakdown track-listing:
1. Dave Mustaine Riffs, Intervention, Baby in t...
2. Sober, Finger-Banging, Drunk Logic
3. Weed, Cigs, Election 2016
4. Kiefer
5. Myrtle Beach
6. Free Clinic, Raccoons
7. Rockers Aren't P.C.
8. Where Have All the Rock Stars Gone?
9. Rocking Women, Viking Metal, Big Four
10. Vagina No-No's, Van Fucker, Doggie Style
11. Dating at 50, Threesome (Almost)
12. Brad & Angelina, Great Head, Mr. Brownstone
13. Johnny Depp

Named one of the top 10 metalhead comedians by Revolver Magazine, Don has captured some of his most irreverent work to-date on his third album, Communication Breakdown. Don explains: "This album has tons of jokes but really revolves around 4 or 5 longer stories, which is something I've never really done before. I usually just like shot gunning jokes like beers at a frat party, but this time around I tried something a little different. It took a while to develop them for the stage but am really happy with the way they turned out, particularly the track 'Kiefer', which is a true story about a crazy night with the '24' actor.
Other than that, there's a little bit of something for everyone on this disc, and I hope people who buy or steal it enjoy it as much as I do."

Beyond Creation release video for "Coexistence"De Xavier le 21/03/2017 à 21:06

BEYOND CREATION are releasing a music video featuring their classic track "Coexistence", which was originally featured on their full-length 'The Aura' (2011).

The Canadian tech death masters are currently scheduled for two festival performances in Europe. The band will perform at Hellfest in Clisson, France on June 16th and next hit the UK Tech Fest in Winthorpe on July 9th.



BEYOND CREATION are currently working on more live dates in support of their acclaimed latest full-length 'Earthborn Evolution' (2014). Artwork and track-list of 'Earthborn Evolution' can be viewed below.
Track-list
1. Elusive Reverence
2. Sous La Lueur De L'empereur
3. Earthborn Evolution
4. The Great Revelation
5. Neurotical Transmissions
6. Abstrait Dialog
7. The Axiom
8. L'exorde
9. Theatrical Delirium
10. Fundamental Process

Feel the onrush of sweeping arpeggios, crushing waves of fretless bass, complex rhythmical patterns and erupting scales peppered with jazzy feeling and masterful execution under the mark of 'Earthborn Evolution', which names the sophomore full-length of BEYOND CREATION. The French part of Canada is home to a vibrant culture of technical Death Metal fostered by outstanding acts such as GORGUTS, CRYPTOPSY, MARTYR, and NEURAXIS. This illustrious family tree has produced many sprouts in the past, yet none of them are as brilliant as Quebec's new amazing scion: BEYOND CREATION! Founded in the Olympic city of Montreal in the year 2005, the band worked hard to gain technical expertise before putting out their only demo in 2010. The immediate buzz resonated within and beyond technical Death Metal circles and was followed up by a self-release of "The Aura" (2011), which was re-issued by Season of Mist in 2013. With their debut album, BEYOND CREATION delivered a ferocious blend of technicality, melody, and brutality aided by fang-filled growls, which was interwoven with beautiful progressive interludes. Yet this was just the beginning as 'Earthborn Evolution' proves beyond doubt. Their next step now catapults the Canadians into the top league of their genre, right among such giants as ATHEIST, DEATH or early CYNIC. There can be no doubt, BEYOND CREATION are leading proponents of the lightning evolution of the progressive technical death metal revolution!

Current line-up
Simon Girard: vocals, 8-string guitars
Kevin Chartré: 8-string guitars
Hugo Doyon-Karout: 6-string fretless bass

Replacire stream complete new albumDe Xavier le 14/03/2017 à 20:01



REPLACIRE are now streaming their complete forthcoming album 'Do Not Deviate', which has been slated for release on March 17th.

EPLACIRE comment: "Every note on this record was scrutinized for intent and purpose. This resulted in shorter, heavier songs, but they still retain the density that fans of extreme music can appreciate over multiple listens. We would devote entire weeks to writing and arranging. Some songs came together after a couple hours, others took days on end before they were completed. Several tracks never made it to the record despite multiple re-writes. We ended up with an intense record; a weird, cerebral, and crushing metal album that people will hopefully latch onto."



Track-list
01. Horsestance
02. Act, Reenact
03. Built Upon the Grave of He Who Bends
04. Any Promise
05. Cold Repeater
06. Reprise
07. Moonbred Chains
08. Do Not Deviate
09. Spider Song
10. Traveling Through Abyss
11. Enough for One

'Do Not Deviate' is a vicious beast. Relentlessly attacking and pushing forward. Yet REPLACIRE combine aggression with technical intricacy and lace their harsh death metal not only with the usual genre elements such as cascading syncopated breaks, odd-time signatures, and jazzy moments, but also inject a clever elegance, which is quite reminiscent of Chuck Schuldiner's DEATH under the influence of CYNIC. The band's obvious technical prowess is harnessed by the needs of good songwriting as opposed to self-indulgent musical masturbation.

REPLACIRE is the brainchild of guitarist Eric Alper, who founded the band in 2010. The American tech metal prodigies hailing from Boston, Massachusetts self-released their debut full-length 'The Human Burden' in 2012. The album's unique and wide-ranging material was an ambitious statement of intent that quickly established the New Englanders as a must-follow heavy act in their corner of the US. REPLACIRE quickly went on to push the boundaries by touring extensively throughout the Northeast and supporting such heavyweights as BEYOND CREATION, HATE ETERNAL, MISERY INDEX, and ARTIFICIAL BRAIN among others.

Now, REPLACIRE are ready to take on the word with their sophomore full-length. It is easy to predict that 'Do Not Deviate' will be an early milestone for technical metal in 2017 and bound to end up on many best of lists of that year. You don't want to take our word for it? Well, just give it a spin and listen carefully.

New Day DawnDe Xavier le 13/03/2017 à 19:54

The brand New Song by The band New Day Dawn called "The Broken".

The track is called "THE BROKEN". (Words & Music by Dawn Botti)
This is the first single off of New Day Dawn's soon-to-be released 3rd album which is due out in May, 2017.
The song is for anyone who has felt downtrodden, alone, oppressed or hopeless. Together we stand the strongest.

Here is the Youtube post for the song "The Broken":

REX BROWN : Signature avec STEAMHAMMER/SPVDe Xavier le 10/03/2017 à 22:13

REX BROWN BAND + Rex Brown to release the first solo album of his career

Multi-platinum selling artist Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN) is due to release his first solo album via SPV / Steamhammer within Europe. “I’ve been working on these songs for a long time,” says Brown. The yet to be titled full length will be the first time in Brown’s career in which he will serve as both, lead vocalist and guitarist in a band. The release is planed for June 23rd, 2017.

Georg Schröder (A+R Steamhammer) on the signing: "We are honored and proud to release the first Rex Brown solo album within Europe. The album shows a side of him, that many people won't expect but it is well worth to check it out and i'm really looking forward to get this one out there."

Steamhammer / SPV welcomes the REX BROWN BAND!



After a season away to gather his wits about him, rediscover his own roots, and assemble a group of players ready to help him execute his vision for the days ahead, Rex Brown reemerges with a semi truck’s worth of rock n’ roll tunes as honest and sincere as they come. The new album is the sound of the man’s own truth, forthright and ego-free. As he likes to say, “You’re only as good as your word and your word better be good.”

Rex’s solo album is full of mojo and the force of character, determination, and nerve. He tracked lead vocals, rhythm guitars, and bass, working with his primary collaborator and old friend, Lance Harvill, a Nashville-based guitarist and songwriter, on the album’s songs. “Lance was & is, my main man on this. Everything we did was finely tuned, both musically & brotherly.”

Drums were tracked by Christopher Williams, himself no stranger to diverse tastes, from funk music to punk. His talent has been utilized by country music star Lee Greenwood, the reconstituted Blackfoot and most recently, power metal legends Accept. The album was produced by New Yorker turned Nashville transplant Caleb Sherman, a multi-instrumentalist with work on records by Little Big Town and Porter Block, among others. “Caleb produced the project from a musician's standpoint,” adds Brown. “Not just a typical producer’s standpoint, which was something I definitely needed. Between Caleb and Lance, we were a force to be reckoned with. They really pulled out the best in me.” Peter Keyes, known for his work with Lynyrd Skynyrd can also be heard on a few tracks. All bass tracking came from Rex himself as well.

THE RETICENT Release Official Video for "The Decision"De Xavier le 26/02/2017 à 23:30

Progressive Metal band THE RETICENT have released an official video for "The Decision," a track from 2016 album On The Eve of a Goodbye. Check out the video:



Grammy-nominee and front man Chris Hathcock had this to say about the video:

"After months of planning, The Reticent has finally released their heart-wrenchingly beautiful new video "The Decision." Taken from the acclaimed album, On The Eve Of A Goodbye, this new video seeks to confront viewers with the reality of suicide and the loss of a loved one. Made more like a silent film than a music video, the video's narrative is heartbreaking in a way few music videos can be. This makes "The Decision" the perfect visual companion to the tragic masterpiece of On The Eve Of A Goodbye. Have some tissues handy."

Heaven & Hell Records released On The Eve Of A Goodbye on October 5. Purchase and/or streaming the album in its entirety at the following link:
https://heavenandhellrecords.bandcamp.com/album/on-the-eve-of-a-goodbye

The album was produced by Jamie King (BTBAM, The Wretched, Scale The Summit), and will be released on limited edition CD with complete lyrics. Check out the official video for album track "The Girl Broken" at this location, as well as "The Comprehension" video here.

This is undoubtedly the most ambitious and intense offering from THE RETICENT to date. An uncompromising autobiographical concept record, On the Eve Of A Goodbye is certain to exceed all expectations, boasting 73 minutes of stirring progressive metal that must be heard in its entirety to grasp the full magnitude.

On The Eve Of A Goodbye is an autobiographical concept album. All of the tracks serve to detail the day before, day of, and day after the suicide of THE RETICENT's mastermind Chris Hathcock's childhood friend, Eve. The songs chronicle his concern for her, her deterioration into self-hatred, and culminates with the tragic act and its aftermath. Not only a stylistic contrast to previous releases, this album is also intensely more personal than past Reticent albums (which were already emotional purges). The album is intended to be heard as a single entity rather than a collection of tracks.

The album was recorded in order in the span of a few days in the summer of 2015 (with a touch up in November 2015). Producer/Engineer Jamie King (known for previous work with BTBAM, The Wretched, Scale The Summit, etc.) chose to allow Hathcock to do as he needed in the studio as he felt it added greatly to the emotion of the record. In fact, on the song "Funeral for a Firefly" when trying to record the lead vocal part, Hathcock made it only two lines in before sobbing hysterically as memories and the trauma he had held back for a decade came flooding to the forefront. After calming to the point that he could catch his breath, Hathcock told Jamie King that he felt unable to record the song. Jamie encouraged him to try just one more time and if it didn't work, they'd drop it. Hathcock went back into the booth and made it through the entire song with constant tears streaming down his face and his voice cracking and quivering as he went through. Jamie was so affected by the performance he said he wanted to keep the raw performance - as in no edits to the sound so every sniffle and breath could be heard putting the listener in the booth with the despairing singer.

Outline Magazine UK wrote about one of the recent shows:

“From the start it’s clear why Prong have made such an impression on the music scene. They have a sound bigger than the sum of the three people on stage, and they know how to use it. It’s like someone has weaponised metal, and they’re using the audience for aural target practice. It’s impressive, and it’s also really, really fucking good.”


The current PRONG album "X-No Absolutes" was released last year through SPV/Steamhammer as a Digipak (incl. bonus track + sticker), Double LP Gatefold version (red vinyl, CD in paper sleeve) and as download and stream. The album entered the official album charts in Germany, the USA, Belgium and the UK.

Replacire premiere De Xavier le 07/02/2017 à 22:31

REPLACIRE are streaming the opening track "Horsestance" taken from their forthcoming album 'Do Not Deviate', which has been slated for release on March 17th.





Track-list
01. Horsestance
02. Act, Reenact
03. Built Upon the Grave of He Who Bends
04. Any Promise
05. Cold Repeater
06. Reprise
07. Moonbred Chains
08. Do Not Deviate
09. Spider Song
10. Traveling Through Abyss
11. Enough for One



'Do Not Deviate' is a vicious beast. Relentlessly attacking and pushing forward. Yet REPLACIRE combine aggression with technical intricacy and lace their harsh death metal not only with the usual genre elements such as cascading syncopated breaks, odd-time signatures, and jazzy moments, but also inject a clever elegance, which is quite reminiscent of Chuck Schuldiner's DEATH under the influence of CYNIC. The band's obvious technical prowess is harnessed by the needs of good songwriting as opposed to self-indulgent musical masturbation.

REPLACIRE is the brainchild of guitarist Eric Alper, who founded the band in 2010. The American tech metal prodigies hailing from Boston, Massachusetts self-released their debut full-length 'The Human Burden' in 2012. The album's unique and wide-ranging material was an ambitious statement of intent that quickly established the New Englanders as a must-follow heavy act in their corner of the US. REPLACIRE quickly went on to push the boundaries by touring extensively throughout the Northeast and supporting such heavyweights as BEYOND CREATION, HATE ETERNAL, MISERY INDEX, and ARTIFICIAL BRAIN among others.

Now, REPLACIRE are ready to take on the word with their sophomore full-length. It is easy to predict that 'Do Not Deviate' will be an early milestone for technical metal in 2017 and bound to end up on many best of lists of that year. You don't want to take our word for it? Well, just give it a spin and listen carefully.

THE OCEAN News / Video " Rhyacian"De Xavier le 07/02/2017 à 22:14

The Ocean launches live video for "Rhyacian"

Germany's premier post-metal act The Ocean has started work on a new album, to follow-up their latest release: 2015's split EP with Japanese post-rock legends Mono, entitled Transcendental. In anticipation of the upcoming full-length record, The Ocean has launched a new live video for the track "Rhyacian", which is taken from 2007's Precambrian. Filmed at the Brick by Brick in San Diego, CA, the video can be viewed at:





Prior to Transcendental, The Ocean released their sixth full-length in 2013: Pelagial - which was hailed as the group's "most ambitious record to date" (HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com). Over the course of the crushingly massive record, "tender piano interludes get stomped on by Mastodon-shaped footprints, lush strings work next to bulldozing double-kick work, and, at the end, the submarine crashes at Melvins tempos" (Spin.com). Since the album and EP's release, the group has toured the world in support of them, earning much praise for their mesmerizing live shows.

Byzantine launches PledgeMusic campaign for new album, 'The Cicada Tree'



The name Byzantine is synonymous with a band thriving in the underground for its whole existence. Heralded as the most underrated band from the New Wave of American Heavy Metal Movement, Byzantine has slowly gained a cult-like following after releasing 5 genre-bending albums. Now, Metal Blade Records has given Byzantine the chance to show their talent on a bigger stage and the band has responded with The Cicada Tree - the culmination of many years of musical craftsmanship and resounding songwriting. 16 years underground, it's finally time for the world to hear Byzantine on June 2nd!



In conjunction with PledgeMusic, The Cicada Tree is now available to pre-order in various formats and bundles, with every "pledge"/purchase receiving a digital download of the tracks, plus exclusive content. To reserve your copy of the album (with 2 cover songs by Fishbone and the Cars), signed material from the band, apparel, and more, please visit: pledgemusic.com/byzantine2017

Chris "OJ" Ojeda (vocals, rhythm guitar) comments: "The last two Byzantine albums were released DIY and both were coupled with successful crowd-funding campaigns. Now that we have finally landed a home with Metal Blade, we feel that it is vital that we continue our close relationship with our fan-base by offering up pre-orders for 'The Cicada Tree' through PledgeMusic. Our experience with PledgeMusic has been nothing short of fantastic. We hope you enjoy 'The Cicada Tree' as much as we enjoyed making it for you!"


Byzantine's previous release, To Release Is To Resolve (2015), climbed to the #1 metal album spot on college rock radio, being only the 2nd indie album to do so after Clutch's Earth Rocker. The record also broke into the Billboard Top 200 and earned a #1 spot on Sirius XM's Liquid Metal for one week, beating out new singles by Lamb of God and Slayer. With The Cicada Tree and their new deal with Metal Blade Records, Byzantine is poised to take the music world by storm once again. As MetalSucks.net proclaims: "The Byz are back and better than ever, and yes, STILL, nobody beats 'em."

THE NEGATION : nouveau clip "A Prayer for those I will Have to Kill"De Xavier le 06/02/2017 à 16:37

Après avoir sorti deux albums, et conquis le public en tournant et partageant la scène avec des artistes comme MARDUK,INQUISITION ou KAMPFAR, THE NEGATION présente son nouveau clip "A Prayer for those I will Have to Kill" que vous pouvez regarder ici.
Ce clip propose un nouveau voyage dans son univers caractéristique, empli de violence et de noirceur.



Le titre "A Prayer for those I will Have to Kill" est issu du second album du groupe Memento Mori, paru en 2015 chez Kaotoxin, ayant récolté des critiques élogieuses de la part des médias du monde entier, comme « un assaut de Black Metal brutal qui ne vous laissera aucun répit » [CvltNation] ou "Un excellent exemple de ce que doit être le Black Metal, comme il a été créé" [Metal Temple], s’être classé 13e meilleur album de 2015 au Lair of Filth et élu # 5 meilleur album métal français pour 2015 par les lecteurs de VS-Webzine en France.

THE NEGATION c’est une déflagration qui vient secouer vos croyances et vos fondements, cherchant à vous éclairer pour vous ouvrir les yeux…enfin ! Un appel à la révolte contre votre propre existence et sa vaine et désespérée signification. Pour ébranler votre soi-disant volonté bloquée par l'absence totale de «pourquoi ?». Car nous essayons tous de nous cacher profondément ... En négation totale.

Open The Doors : Hellfest, le documentaireDe Xavier le 19/01/2017 à 22:05

Open The Doors : Hellfest
Le documentaire inédit produit par Red Bull TV



Disponible à partir du 18 février en exclusivité sur Red Bull TV https://www.redbull.tv/

Extrême, démesuré, éclectique, excessif : on sait aujourd’hui déjà tout ou presque sur le Hellfest, festival metal monté dans la petite ville de Clisson il y a maintenant 12 ans et qui a connu, au terme d’une série de déconvenues et de rebondissements dignes d’un scénario hollywoodien, un succès sans précédent. Deuxième plus gros évènement musical en France, le Hellfest est aujourd’hui l’un des plus importants rendez-vous de la scène metal mondiale, réunissant chaque année 150 000 festivaliers de 70 nationalités différentes. Une réussite due bien sûr à sa programmation XXL, couvrant l’intégralité du spectre metal, du hard rock au grindcore en passant par le thrash, le death, le black, le stoner et le hardcore, mais aussi et surtout à son âme : le Hellfest est en effet un festival monté par des fans pour des fans, ce qui lui a très tôt conféré une place très particulière dans le coeur du public. Et dans celui des gens qui le font vivre.

C’est justement à eux que s’intéresse Open The Doors : Hellfest, documentaire réalisé par Samuel Favier et François Cora pour Red Bull TV, qui a suivi pendant 3 mois les préparatifs et la mise en place de l’édition 2016 du festival, de l’arrivée des premières équipes sur le site à la clôture du festival.


Un tour de force technique et humain sans équivalent dans le paysage musical français, puisqu’il repose sur 500 salariés et pas moins de 3000 bénévoles, tous chapeautés par l’équipe du Hellfest, dans un esprit directement hérité de la scène punk-hardcore et du Do It Yourself, privilégiant l’autogestion.
« Toutes les personnes qui travaillent au Hellfest ne viennent pas du milieu du metal, loin de là », raconte Ben Barbaud, fondateur du festival. « Mais elles aiment être ensemble, échanger, rencontrer des gens et, surtout, il y a une contrepartie en termes de reconnaissance. Le but, c’est de faire en sorte que tous ceux qui apportent leur pierre à l’édifice fassent partie intégrante du tout. Que ça devienne tout simplement leur festival. »
Des héros de l’ombre que l’on suit 50 minutes durant dans le documentaire : régisseurs, ouvriers, électriciens, bénévoles, stagiaires, ingés-son, mais aussi artistes, comme les collectifs Monic La Mouche et Bungalow Bunker, auteurs des décors qui donnent au Hellfest son esthétique et sa scénographie uniques, entre parc d’attractions occulte et film post-apocalyptique.

Autant de personnages (car il faut bien parler de personnages - passionnés, impliqués, hauts en couleur) qui font battre le coeur d’une machine toujours plus extrême, démesurée, éclectique et excessive, mais plus que jamais humaine.

AFI – AFI (THE BLOOD ALBUM) - SORTIE LE 20 JANVIER 2017 - (Caroline/Universal)



Le groupe d'alt-rock aux millions d'albums vendus, AFI, vient d'annoncer la sortie, le 20 janvier 2017, de son nouvel album AFI (The Blood Album). Le quartet (composé du chanteur Davey Havok, du guitariste Jade Puget, du bassiste Hunter Burgan et du batteur Adam Carson) en donne déjà un aperçu avec la mise en ligne de deux nouveaux titres – “Snow Cats” et “White Offerings”. Ces deux titres sont disponibles pour toute précommande d'AFI (The Blood Album) sur iTunes. Il est aussi possible d'écouter ces nouveaux morceaux sur le site officiel d'AFI.

La nouvelle de la sortie de ce nouvel album fait suite à de nombreuses spéculations sur les intentions du groupe : plus tôt cette semaine, la station de radio alt-rock KROQ postait un article intitulé "AFI mijote quelque chose. Mais quoi ?" Des fans du monde entier se posaient alors la même question, en élaborant diverses théories conspirationnistes, après que le groupe a supprimé ses photos de profil sur Facebook et Twitter, complètement effacé son profil Instagram, et publié une série de teasers mystérieux. “AFI nous titille non stop depuis maintenant quatre jours", écrivait alors AP, “et cela nous a fait plonger immédiatement, pour essayer de déceler le moindre petit indice.”

Enregistré aux Megawatt Studios de Los Angeles, AFI (The Blood Album) a été produit par Jade Puget et co-produit par Matt Hyde (Deftones), faisant suite à Burials, sorti en 2013, et ayant atteint le Top 10 du Billboard 200. Depuis la sortie en 1995 de l'album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI a placé cinq singles dans le Top 10, a atteint la première place avec l'incroyable Decemberunderground), rassemblé des millions de fans tout autour du monde, tout en étant encensés par la critique.

AFI (The Blood Album) est le 10e album studio du groupe, et le premier sur Concord Records.
