RAVEN LORD Announces New Drummer

February 23rd, 2013
by EvilG

International metallers RAVEN LORD have announced the addition of current POWER QUEST drummer RICH SMITH to the group’s ranks.

The chance to challenge himself in a different field with RAVEN LORD was an opportunity he did not want to miss. Rich will finish the two shows for POWER QUEST’s farewell tour by the end of May.

Commented Smith: “…I’m delighted to of been offered the throne to drum for RAVEN LORD. I can’t wait to get in the rehearsal room with these guys and hit the road to play some kick ass shows I’d like to thank all the guys in the band and the management for this opportunity…

EX-drummer LARRY PATERSON on his leave:”…It is meant as no disrespect to any of you at all – and I wish great success for everybody. To cut a long story short, things are pretty tough right now as I have another band, a book and a documentary to make. All of this is running on a very tight schedule which WILL definitely get in the way of Raven Lord

Singer and bandleader CSABA ZVEKAN commented “I’m saddened to see Larry go from RAVEN LORD but if dates are clashing there is not much any of us can do. The good thing is me and LARRY PATERSON will continue working on another band project called EXORCISM which is expected to be released in 2014. Well, you know what they say ; the show must go on! And with Summer shows in the pipeline we had to act fast and find another drummer as a permanent solution. RICH SMITH is highly motivated to be the next Lord drummer and with POWER QUEST calling it the quits it was obvious that he was available for grabs. We took the opportunity and welcome RICH SMITH to RAVEN LORD.

The complete RAVEN LORD lineup is:

Csaba Zvekan (Killing Machine) – Vocals
Joe Stump (Holy Hell, Reign of Terror) – Lead Guitar
Jamie Mallender (Tony Martin Band) – Bass
Rich Smith (Power Quest) – Drums
George Karafotis (Vermillion Days) – Guitar
Alessandro Duo (Voodoo Highway) – Keyboards

RAVEN LORD recently got confirmed for the R-MINE METALFEST 2013 in Tongeren, Belgium followed by some shows in the Netherlands and Spain. The summer show dates shape up as follows.

15. June Palma de Mallorca, SPAIN, T.B.A.
22. June R-MINE METALFEST 2013, Tongeren, BELGIUM
28. June P3, Purmerend, NETHERLANDS
29. June The Mix, Uithoorn, NETHERLANDS

more shows to be announced very soon.

Press Quote: “Raven Lord and one of the best power metal albums in the last couple years…the power metal masterpiece that is ‘Descent to the Underworld‘ …” (Metal Delirium)

RAVEN LORD recently released their debut album, “Descent To The Underworld“ worldwide via Mausoleum Records. The CD was mixed by acclaimed Swedish producer Fredrik Nordström (AT THE GATES, ARCH ENEMY, NIGHTRAGE, IN FLAMES, DREAM EVIL, OPETH) and was mastered by U.S. mastering engineer Maor Appelbaum (SEPULTURA, HALFORD, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ANGRA, DOKKEN). The cover artwork was created by Brazilian artist Caio Caldas of CadiesArt, who has previously worked with DORO, PAUL DI’ANNO, SEVEN KINGDOMS, DOMINANZ and VIOLET SUN among others.

by EvilG
HELL AND HEAVEN METAL FEST 2013

HELL AND HEAVEN METAL FEST 2013

HELL AND HEAVEN METAL FEST 2013, is a festival that was born three years ago in Guadalajara, Mexico, and for this year’s edition (May 18 and 19, 2013) includes 30 of the most important groups of the international metal scene from countries like the U.S., Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Portugal, Norway, Spain and Canada, and the same number of the most important groups in Mexico. The organizing committee appreciates the support of all his friends & fans that have made this festival the largest metal community in Latin America.

 

HISTORY

HELL & HEAVEN festival, now in its third edition, was founded in 2010 with the presence of the best national and international groups of metal. To date, the H & HMF has positioned itself as the more heavy rock festival in the country. A prove is the more than one million monthly visits to the festival’s site on facebook, which has 53.000 subscribers and is considered the largest metal virtual community in Latin America.

 

During the past two editions of the festival, fans of the genre from the 32 Mexican states have traveled to Guadalajara, turning the city into the epicenter of Mexico’s underground movement.

On Saturday November 19, 2011 was held the second edition of the festival. 5 scenarios with 61 bands like MEGADETH, DESTRUCTION, KATAKLYSM, DARK FUNERAL, BRUJERIA, and FEAR FACTORY, which featured 15 hours of live music, and the assistance of 15,000 people, turn the H & HMETAL FEST to be considered one of the biggest encounters of Latin American metalheads.

Another premise of this festival, apart from presenting the most important groups of the genre in the world, was to promote national talent, and becoming a benchmark for heavy rock lovers in Latin America. Therefore, the scenarios presented, in addition to 16 international groups, 45 national bands championed various styles within the heavy rock, from various regions of Mexico.

 

The 2013 edition, which will take place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May at the Esplanade adjacent to the Arena VFG (Zona Metropolitana de Guadalajara), have three scenarios, which will present the following confirmed bands: MOTORHEAD, ANTHRAX , TESTAMENT, IN FLAMES, EPICA, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, SODOM, EXODUS, SIX FEET UNDER, MOONSPELL, SUFFOCATION, HAGGARD, ILL NINO, DOKKEN, HEATHEN, MUNICIPAL WASTE, WARBRINGER, AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK, GILBY CLARKE, RESORTE, VITAL REMAINS, DDLM, CATTLE DECAPITATION, ORIGIN, TRANSMETAL, HERE COMES THE KRAKEN, BLACK OIL, BUTCHER BABIES, PINHEAD, MORPHIUM, PRO-FE-CIA, AGONY LORDS, DRAKSEN, ATTACKHEAD, NIGHTBREED, WRECKER, THELL BARRIO, INTOXXXICATED, SABACTHANI, CTHULHU, CEMICAN, PSICOVOMITOSIS, THANTRA, IRA, ARCHETYPE, GODLESS PROCESSION, SACHIEL, MULUC PAX, BUFFALO GRILLZ, HACAVITZ, PROFANATOR, SUBHUMAN, LECUMBERRI, SPERPENTUM, ARCADIA LIBRE, THE BILLY’S, RINDERPEST, MORTOSS, INES CHAVEZ and TDH.

Machine Head and Bassist Adam Duce Part Ways

February 23rd, 2013
by EvilG

After the shocker earlier in the week about Dave Lombardo out of Slayer (for how long, who knows?), Machine Head dropped the following news about original bassist Adam Duce:

“Machine Head and bassist Adam Duce have parted ways. The split is amicable, and Machine Head would like to wish Adam the best with his current and future endeavors. The band will continue on for the time being as a three-piece and have begun the writing process for their follow-up to 2011′s “Unto The Locust”. A late 2013 release is projected.”

Obscene Extreme Festival – Interview with Curby

Interview by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

http://www.obsceneextreme.cz/index.php?lang=us

Obscene Extreme Festival

Obscene Extreme Festival

For the last 15 years Trutnov, Czech Republic has been the spiritual home to the Obscene Extreme Festival – an open-air event dedicated to extreme metal and grindcore. From the initial seeds sown by organiser Curby and nurtured by the blood, sweat, and tears of each successive year’s festival patrons, 2013 sees Obscene Extreme Festival mark its anniversary in the best way possible – by expanding with, not one, but three new international entities; South America, Australia, and Asia.

Talking us through the immense challenge of delivering four festivals across four continents, Curby explains how Obscene Extreme Festival has grown beyond all expectations, but not away from its original ideals.

Anthrax Cover AC/DC’s ‘T.N.T.’ – Exclusive Song Premiere

February 22nd, 2013
by EvilG

Anthrax TNTEver since Anthrax first hinted at a potential covers disc last year, there’s been plenty of anticipation of what the metal icons might take on. Now we know the classics tracks that the group have recorded for the upcoming ‘Anthems’ EP, and Loudwire is proud to premiere Anthrax’s ripping performance of AC/DC‘s ‘T.N.T.’ in advance of the disc’s March 19 street date.

Drummer Charlie Benante tells LOUDWIRE:  “Back in the day, when we would do encores we would play AC/DC’s ‘Whole Lotta Rosie.’ We never recorded it back then, but when we were in the studio making ‘Worship Music,’ we decided we wanted to. But [singer] Joey [Belladonna] really wanted to do ‘T.N.T.’ He felt it was more in his style, and he knew the song backwards and forwards, so we recorded that, and it’s great.”

Benante goes on to add, “We recorded the track in Chicago and in Los Angeles [and] the sessions were really easy, felt really good. The thing about ‘T.N.T.’ for me is that there’s not a lot of drumming on it. So the challenge for me was to not go crazy with fills, but to pay tribute to the original recording, and keep it AC/DC.”

Anthrax does exactly that, keeping it to the rocking core of the AC/DC classic, but even though Benante says there’s not much for him to do, at the end of the track there’s the all-out free-for-all for the entire group as the band raises the tempo for the song’s explosive finish.

Anthrax’s ‘Anthems’ also features the band’s covers of Rush‘s ‘Anthem,’ Thin Lizzy‘s ‘Jailbreak,’ Boston‘s ‘Smokin” and Journey‘s ‘Keep on Runnin” among others. In addition to ‘Anthems” cover art, Benante and artist Stephen Thompson have subtly redesigned each track’s original album cover art to “Anthrax” it. The ‘Anthems’ EP will first be housed in one of the “re-imagined” digipak covers, and then inserted inside the main CD cover sleeve. The main cover sleeve has been designed in such a way so fans will be able to see which one of the six “re-imagined” covers is inside.

Look for Anthrax’s ‘Anthems’ on March 19. You can currently pre-order the disc here. And check out Anthrax’s rendition of AC/DC’s ‘T.N.T.’ HERE.

SLAYER: We Do Not Agree With DAVE LOMBARDO’s Substance Or Timeline Of Events

February 22nd, 2013
by EvilG

slayerposterSLAYER has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the band’s decision to replace drummer Dave Lombardo for the upcoming Australian tour:

 

“SLAYER confirms that Jon Dette will drum for the band on its Australian tour that starts this Saturday, February 23 in Brisbane. As regards Dave Lombardo’s Facebook post, SLAYER does not agree with Mr. Lombardo’s substance or the timeline of the events, except to acknowledge that Mr. Lombardo came to the band less than a week before their scheduled departure for Australia to present an entirely new set of terms for his engagement that were contrary to those that had been previously agreed upon. The band was unable to reach an agreement on these new demands in the short amount of time available prior to leaving for Australia. There is more to the account than what Mr. Lombardo has offered, but out of respect to him, SLAYER will not be commenting further. SLAYER is grateful to its Australian fans for their understanding of this unfortunate last-minute change, and very much looks forward to seeing them at these shows.”

 

Lombardo released a statement last night indicating that he was being replaced for SLAYER’s Australian dates after he requested access to detailed information and the necessary backup documents regarding how the band’s tour income was being distributed. According to the drummer, 90% of SLAYER’s tour revenue is “being deducted as expenses, including the professional fees paid to management, costing the band millions of dollars and leaving 10% or less to split amongst the four of us.”

SLAYER2009 008.JPG

 

Shortly into the tour for SLAYER’s 1986 album “Reign In Blood”, Lombardo left the group, citing financial concerns. Tony Scaglione of WHIPLASH was recruited to replace Lombardo; however, this lineup was short-lived, as Lombardo returned in 1987. In 1992, Lombardo left the group again due to friction with the other band members, particularly King. Paul Bostaph of FORBIDDEN took over as the band’s drummer for 1994′s “Divine Intervention” and 1996′s “Undisputed Attitude”, the latter being an LP of cover tunes. Following the recording of “Undisputed Attitude”, Jon Dette replaced Bostaph, who left to concentrate on other projects. Dette was fired a year later and Bostaph returned to the fold. In 2001, Bostaph left SLAYER for good and was replaced by a returning Lombardo. Although this reunion was initally announced as temporary, Lombardo has remained with the band ever since.

 

SLAYER has spent the past two years touring without guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who is still recovering from necrotising fasciitis, a flesh-eating disease, which he is believed to have gotten from a spider bite. Hanneman is being temporarily replaced on the road by EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt.

 

Prior to joining SLAYER, Dette appeared on TESTAMENT’s “Live At The Fillmore” album, which came out in 1995.

 

Dette is currently playing with ANTHRAX as a temporary replacement for the band’s longtime drummer Charlie Benante, who “is dealing with personal issues right now and can’t leave” the U.S., according to ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian.

L Sol Tace – New Lead Guitarist Announced

February 21st, 2013
by EvilG

London metallers L Sol Tace have announced that their NEW lead guitarist is Sy Taplin!

Sy has been in various bands before including thrash metallers Savage Messiah.  On joining L Sol Tace, Sy said he is “very happy to be in the band with a great bunch of guys! The style of music suits me perfectly and not only that I see great potential with the band.  Having seen them live, listening to the new album which blew me away and speaking to Sam for a few weeks, I knew I wanted in.  Sam sent me over ‘Fall’ with lead guitars and few hours later I emailed a video back, close enough to nailing it.  That was my audition.”

Sam Wallace, guitarist, says “having Sy in the band is great for us; he’s one hell of a player with a great CV behind him.  We can’t wait to get out there and hit the stage as a 5 piece and destroy it!  If you liked us before just wait until you see us now!”

L Sol Tace’s debut album is due to be released mid 2013, with guest solos from Peredur ap Gwynedd (Pendulum), Agamoth (Abgott) and Danny (Breed 77).  The first single release will be ‘Rise’.

L Sol Tace’s next shows are at Terrorizer’s Grindhouse at The Dev on 23rd February, Fighting Cocks in Kingston on 15th March, The Rev in Ipswich on 22nd March and Club 333 in London on 24th March, with plenty more to be announced in the next few weeks.

You can hear the track ‘Mistress Of The Sun’ from the new album, featuring Agamoth from Abgott.

Shitty News of the Day: SLAYER’s Dave Lombardo To Be Replaced On Band’s Australian Tour 2013

February 21st, 2013
by EvilG

SLAYER05 CHICAGO TIM SHOCKLEY DIGITALSLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo has issued the following statement regarding the band’s Australian Tour 2013:

“I want to personally apologize to all of our fans in Australia who have bought tickets for the tour expecting to see me in my usual place on the drums.

So that you all know the truth, as of the end of the business day on February 14th, I was notified that I would not be drumming for the tour in Australia. I’m saddened, and to be honest I am shocked by the situation.

Last year, I discovered 90% of Slayer’s tour income was being deducted as expenses including the professional fees paid to management, costing the band millions of dollars and leaving 10% or less to split amongst the four of us. In my opinion, this is not the way a band’s business should operate. I tried rectifying it by letting my band mates know, and Tom (Araya) and I hired auditors to figure out what happened, but I was denied access to detailed information and the necessary back up documents.
I spent the Christmas and New Year holidays realizing I had toured all over the world in 2012, but yet, had not been paid (except a small advance) or provided a proper accounting for a full year’s sweat and blood. On top of this, I was told that I would not be paid until I signed a long form contract which gave me no written assurance of how much or on what basis management would deduct commissions, nor did it provide me access to the financial budgets or records for review. It also forbade me to do interviews or make statements having to do with the band, in effect a gagging order.

Last Monday, I sat down with Kerry (King) and Tom to rehearse for Australia and to propose a new business model that I felt was the best way forward for Slayer to confidently protect itself so we could do what we do best . . . play for the fans. Kerry made it clear he wasn’t interested in making changes and said if I wanted to argue the point, he would find another drummer. On Thursday, I arrived at rehearsals at 1 pm as scheduled, but Kerry did not show. Rather, at 6:24 pm I received an email from the lawyers saying I was being replaced for the Australian dates.

I remain hopeful that we can resolve our issues. But once again, I sincerely apologize to all of our fans in Australia who spent their money expecting to see the three of us original Slayer members.

I look forward to seeing you in the future.”
