SHIRAZ LANE Release Video For “Momma’s Boy”

September 2nd, 2016
by Celtic Bob

Earlier this year Frontiers Music Srl released the debut album from SHIRAZ LANE, entitled “For Crying Out Loud”.  The band is pleased to share their new video for the song “Momma’s Boy”.

“This groovy blast of energy is sure to blast off your ear wax and get your fist thumping. This is one of the most aggressive songs on our album regarding the lyrics and the overall atmosphere, which might contribute to making it one of our personal favorites to play live. Give it a spin and prepare for a musical punch in the face to get you going,” says the band about the song and video.

Formed in 2011, SHIRAZ LANE is a young, energetic, ambitious, authentic hard rock group from Vantaa, Finland. Although wearing inspiration from big masters like Aerosmith, Skid Row and Guns N’ Roses on their sleeves, the band has a sound and style all their own. Members of some of the biggest bands in Scandinavia – The 69 Eyes, Amorphis, Children Of Bodom, Lordi and Sonic Syndicate among others – have all described SHIRAZ LANE as being one of the most entertaining bands they have ever seen in the underground music scene, bringing something new to the table in terms of both music and live performance! Notwithstanding their young age (the band members are all in their 20’s), the guys are already veterans of the underground circuit in their homeland and have developed a reputation for being uncompromising, loud and genuine. “For Crying Out Loud”, proves that the band has learned all the tricks in the book and they’re now ready to take on the world.

The 7th Annual GWAR B-Q Breaks All Records…And Bones!

September 2nd, 2016
by Celtic Bob

GWARBQ772518208881_4728154664657263189_n

Once again, last weekend Bohabs and music fans alike descended on beautiful Richmond, Virginia to attend the 7th Annual GWAR B-Q at Hadad’s Lake.  Once again, the legendary GWAR found themselves lounging atop the bodies of the thousands of GWAR B-Q attendees, swilling massive amounts of GWAR Beer, mainlining “Arctic Snow” Vodka, and stinking up the joint by chain-smoking the band’s own premium limited edition CiGWARs.

The 2016 GWAR B-Q broke all previous records for, death count, casualties and utter devastation. Every band that performed kicked so much ass that GWAR spared their lives, although the “members” of several groups were severely beaten and humiliated in a series of no holds barred wrestling matches. The 2016 lineup goes toe-to-toe with any other festival performance anywhere, on any day: GWAR, LAMB OF GOD, AGAINST ME!, DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, AUGUST BURNS RED, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, EYEHATEGOD, LAGWAGON, MURPHY’S LAW, BRAIN TENTACLES, MOBILE DEATHCAMP, OCCULTIST, SAWYER FAMILY, and THE DEATH OF ROCK AND ROLL.

The sights were spectacular! There was the real life ROCK STAR moment when DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN made a fan’s dream come true… Cool Romanian vampire types gleefully lost their composure upon meeting LAMB OF GOD’S RANDY BLYTHE and WILLIE ADLER (seriously, it was like watching someone meet The freakin’ Beatles) and, with a dangling cig in his mouth, PHIL ANSELMO even performed a Bohab wedding! WHAT? Oh, and there were blood soaked Heavy Metal Jesus sightings everywhere too. It was like we were blessed and couldn’t lose!

But of course, the main event of this and every GWAR B-Q was the jaw-dropping, eyeball-popping exhibition by the annihilators of the human race, our Lords and Masters, the Scumdogs of the Universe, GWAR! Those in attendance witnessed a blistering set that featured the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump fighting to the death for control of the American government, as well as GWAR defending their belts for the “Intergalactic Wrestling Championship.”

You never know what’s going to happen at GWAR B-Q but everyone seems to agree, this festival is unfolding as a MUST EXPERIENCE EVENT!

Another successful GWAR B-Q is now in the books and the human slaves that organize it are incredibly grateful and already gearing up for next year’s event, which is slated to be even bigger and better display of carnage, mayhem, and GOOD TIMES than this year!

ROTH BROCK PROJECT To Release self-titled debut album on November 4th

August 31st, 2016
by Celtic Bob

RBP

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of Roth Brock Project self-titled debut album on November 4th.

The Roth Brock Project is the exciting artistic union between guitarist John Roth (Winger, Starship, Giant) and singer Terry Brock (Strangeways, Giant, Leroux). The pair first met in 2009 while working on Giant’s “Promise Land” record. They soon developed a unique songwriting chemistry and musical bond which all these years later has led to their debut release for Frontiers Music Srl. Powerhouse vocals and thundering guitars are at the forefront of this stellar collaboration from two of rock’s most seasoned and underrated veterans.

John Roth landed his first gig at the age of 19, with Southern boogie rock legends Black Oak Arkansas in 1986, and soon found himself in demand for recording and touring with the likes of Jimi Jamison (R.I.P.) of Survivor, and 80’s rock legends, Winger. Terry Brock’s first job in the music business was as a vocalist on the Kansas album “Drastic Measures” in 1983, which was soon followed by a tour with the Steve Morse Band and two albums with Strangeways (who were signed to BMG/RCA Records). Terry is currently on tour with Louisiana’s Leroux, while John is on tour with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas.

“The Roth Brock Project is the kind of record I’ve been wanting to make for a long time!” says John Roth “Guitar-Driven High Energy Rock with Stellar vocals is the first thing you’ll hear when you put this album on, so get ready to crank it up! Stay tuned to Frontiers.it for news on the Roth Brock Project debut record release date, as well as the premier of our first single and video, “Young Gun!”

Roth Brock Project tracklisting includes: Young Gun; What’s It To Ya; Young Again; If That’s What It Takes; I Don’t Know Why; Distant Voices; We Are; Fighter; My City; Never Givin’ Up; Reason To Believe.

Terry Brock: Lead and Background Vocals
John Roth: Guitars, Bass, Keys, Lead and Background Vocals
Scott Trammell: Drums, Percussion

CRYSTAL VIPER Are Back

August 31st, 2016
by Celtic Bob

tumblr_ocrhe7P0Jz1rxgn02o1_1280

CRYSTAL VIPER are back! The Polish Heavy Metallers are returning after a 4 year absence, which was caused by the health issues relating to the band’s front woman and founder, Marta Gabriel, and which placed the future of CRYSTAL VIPER into question (last year Marta underwent surgery of her nasal and facial sinuses). “The witch is back” however, sounding stronger, heavier and louder than ever before…!

On February 17, 2017, AFM RECORDS will release CRYSTAL VIPER’s new concept album entitled “Queen Of The Witches”. The album, which will be available as a limited edition vinyl LP, CD and digital download, has been produced by Bart Gabriel – producer known for his collaboration with acts such as CIRITH UNGOL, MYTHRA and SACRED STEEL (and within their private lives, Marta’s husband), and engineered and mixed by Mariusz Pietka (JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR, LONEWOLF, MORTICIAN). The album’s cover artwork has been created by the legendary German artist, Andreas Marschall (RUNNING WILD, BLIND GUARDIAN, KREATOR). The first single from the new album will be entitled “The Witch Is Back”, and will be available in December. On February 18, 2017, the band will play an exclusive headlining live show in Munich, Germany, at the Heavy Metal Calling Festival, which will be an official release party for the new album.

In other news Marta Gabriel, the band’s singer and guitarist who has once again written all of the songs on the new album, recently joined the ESP GUITARS family. In addition, all of the members of CRYSTAL VIPER have signed an endorsement deal with DEAN MARKLEY.

About SABATON:
Formed in Falun, Sweden in 1999, SABATON is best known for singing almost exclusively about historical wars and battles, a direction the band members decided to take on after watching the 1999 Academy Award-winning film Saving Private Ryan. The band thoroughly researches their topics to ensure the songs paint accurate and objective portraits of the historical event they’re singing about, which are narrated from an omniscient point-of-view or in first-person as a soldier caught in the line of fire.  Like their home country of Sweden, SABATON aims to remain politically neutral in their role as musical war historians. SABATON have reached their unshaken position as heavy metal’s AAA-torchbearer after releasing ingenious studio recordings and playing endless amount of unforgettable live shows. The Last Stand is another unquestionable and bulletproof evidence of SABATON’s top class abilities and it will be followed by the band’s most gigantic world tour to date.

Easy Trigger: “Ways Of Perseverance” details revealed

August 31st, 2016
by Celtic Bob

Street Symphonies Records will release “Ways Of Perseverance”, the new album by Italian hard rockers Easy Trigger, on September 30st, 2016 on CD and through all digital services. The album, whose artwork was realized by Ilpier.it, will be distributed by Andromeda. “The writing process for our new album, started already during the “Bullshit” promotional tour, has been very difficult, long and full of surprises” – said guitarist Caste – “We realized that we didn’t want to give up precisely during the line-up metamorphosis. With new drummer Fabio “Pane” Ferrari joining the band, the whole band’s style, groove and writing process were changing with a more professional tendency, thanks to his and new singer Nico’s backgrounds. With a new frontman, the band could re-start with renewed verve and passion. Nico started immediately working on the lyrics, representing an absolute priority for him: some were born during his trips between Verona, where he lives, and Turin, where he has attended University. He was essential also for the arrangements, giving to the band’s sound a blues touch! The first step was to realize the videoclip for “One Way Out” (https://youtu.be/MW535SKY8Fc), a catchy straightforward song, representing a perfect teaser for the sound of “Ways Of Perseverance”, an album we are eager to publish and play live, that we are proudly releasing, once again, under the label of our debut album Street Symphonies Records”.

“Ways Of Perseverance” track listing:

1. My Darkness
2. Land Of Light
3. The Watchmaker
4. God Is Dead
5. Turn To Stone
6. One Way Out
7. Blind
8. Tell Me A Story
9. Sold Out
10. The Sand

Calgary Thrashers ILLYRIAN Posts New Lyric Video ‘Round 2: Fight!’

August 31st, 2016
by Celtic Bob

Originally formed in 2011, the Calgary thrashers formerly known as Hellborn Death Engines are beginning their resurgence under the new moniker ILLYRIAN with the recent additions of bassist / vocalist Jeff Perry (Sikarra, ex-Animus Labyrinth) plus British drum sensation Darren May (ex-Deacon Birch) who have brought new and progressive musical mindsets into the band to join original and founding members Scott Onofrychuk (guitars/vocals) and Brandon McNeil (guitar/vocals).

Evolving into a highly technical group playing thrash metal with their erratic and precise on-stage delivery, rapier wit, along with nostalgic charm, ILLYRIAN have removed the constraints of conventional metal sub-genre formula to replace their sound with a melting pot of technical thrash riffs, blistering solos, prog-influenced rhythms along with the band’s signature tri-vocal attack all showcased on ten new thrashing tracks on their new album ‘Round 2: Fight!’. The album is set to be unleashed on October 7th and was co-produced by the band with Casey Lewis at Echo Base Studios plus mastered by Sacha Laskow (Every Hour Kills, ex-Divinity) at Perfect Fifth Studios.

Geoff Tate, Tim “Ripper” Owens and Blaze Bayley Unite as “Trinity” for Tour

August 31st, 2016
by Celtic Bob

Come November, heavy metal fans in at least eight east coast cities will be in for a night full of hell-raising fun as three of the genre’s finest vocalists — Geoff Tate, Tim “Ripper” Owens and Blaze Bayley — will be performing the hits from their respective bands on stage together for what is hoped to be just the beginning of several dates over the next few months.

Geoff Tate, who’s Operation: Mindcrime will be releasing their second CD of a trilogy in September titled, Resurrection, states that the collaboration between the three first came about while recently in the studio. “We were recording a song together that will appear on the new Operation: Mindcrime album called ‘Taking on the World’ and immediately realized just how much fun it would be if we went out and did a couple of dates together. We want to give fans a great selection of hits and rarities along with songs we just enjoy performing… and the Trinity tour was born!”

The three vocalists will be backed by the same group of excellent musicians throughout the evening in a show that promises to be loaded with memorable metal for the music masses to enjoy.

Fans can expect to hear such songs as “Empire,” “I Don’t Believe in Love,” “Eyes of a Stranger,” “Living After Midnight,” “Breaking the Law,” “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’,” “Burn in Hell,” “Man on the Edge,” “The Number of the Beast” and “Run to the Hills” among others.

During his illustrious career, Geoff Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three Grammy nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, and one MTV Music Video Award along the way. The landmark concept album Operation: Mindcrime thrust Tate’s unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by Empire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples “Silent Lucidity” and “Jet City Woman.” By the time the band released Promised Land in 1994, Geoff Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music. In September of 2015, his new band, Operation: Mindcrime released its debut effort titled, The Key, which examined what one might do if they discovered “the key” to changing the way we view the world, the way we look at time, the way we travel and could essentially change the human condition… for better or for release. The band successfully toured for months in support of the project and looks forward to their forthcoming release, Resurrection (via Frontiers Music Srl), this September.

Tim “Ripper” Owens first gained worldwide attention and acclaim when he joined Judas Priest as their lead singer in 1996. During his stint with Judas Priest, he recorded two studio albums and two live albums. The song “Bullet Train” — which featured his incredible vocals — was nominated for a Grammy award in 1999 in the category of Best Metal Performance. He subsequently went on to join Iced Earth and currently performs with such bands as Beyond Fear, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force and Charred Walls of the Damned.

Blaze Bayley joined Iron Maiden in 1993 after the departure of Bruce Dickinson and remained the band’s singer until Dickinson’s return in 1999. Bayley, who had started his career in the mid-80’s as the vocalist of Wolfsbane, recorded two albums with Iron Maiden before starting his own band, Blaze. In May of 2000, the band would release their debut album titled, Silicon Messiah, and would go on to put out two other albums. In more recent years, he’s concentrated on solo projects.

Geoff Tate, Tim “Ripper” Owens and Blaze Bayley… not one, not two, but all three!

Three of the most well-respected metal singers from three of the most well-respected metal bands, together on stage in November!

Bloodstock Open Air 2016 @ Catton Hall, Derbyshire

Bloodstock Open Air 2016

@Catton Hall, Derbyshire

11th – 14th August 2016

Review by Demitri Levantis

Photography and Additional Reviews by Graham Hilling

Derbyshire is probably the last place you’d expect to find metal. It’s not one of England’s most famous counties, nor has it built up a reputation for a place of art and culture. But within the south of this quaint midlands county, some of the country’s finest music promoters are at work building the county’s reputation as a haven for metalheads.

August 30th, 2016
by Celtic Bob

The classic rock band stopped by Red Studios in Los Angeles to perform their seminal album Agents Of Fortune in it’s entirety live. In the episode, the group sits down with Ted Stryker for an in depth interview spanning their history.

For a preview of the AUDIENCE Network concert special “BLUE ÖYSTER CULT,” watch an exclusive “First Look” as the band performs their classic hit “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”

View the trailer for “BLUE ÖYSTER CULT” airing Friday, September 2, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AUDIENCE Network, DIRECTV Ch 239/U-verse Ch 1114 (here). Watch and share behind-the-scenes clips of the episode (here) and (here).

AUDIENCE Network’s new music slate continues to deliver groundbreaking concerts, unique stories and exclusive performances across all genres, plus select programming in ultra high-definition/4K*, to audiences nationwide since multiple series began airing this past January. Recent concert specials include: CeeLo Green, Hank Williams Jr., Cheap Trick, Peter Frampton, Flo Rida, Martina McBride, Lukas Graham, Kelsea Ballerini, Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco, 2 Chainz, Keith Urban, The Lumineers, Cole Swindell, Cypress Hill, Dan + Shay, Josh Kelley, Andra Day, JR JR, Young The Giant and others.

AUDIENCE Network’s multiple series of original and exclusive performances give music fans an intimate view of music’s most influential artists today. The network collaborates directly with musicians to create a unique show from their perspective.

For over four decades, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. BLUE ÖYSTER CULToccupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time. Upon the release of BÖC’s self-­-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-­-yet-­-heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC’s canon includes three stone-­-cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s Agents of Fortune, the pummeling “Godzilla” from 1977’s Spectres and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You” from 1981’s Fire of Unknown Origin. The intense creative vision of BÖC’s original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist  Kasim Sulton, and drummer Jules Radino. For the taping of this special performance, they are joined by former member Albert Bouchard (guitar, percussion, vocals).
