Zev Deans comments: “After crawling through abandoned buildings, crashing our van into a tree in the middle of a scene, witnessing a real stabbing and drenching ourselves in fake blood in a derelict park at 5am, we can safely say this was a proper introduction to the slasher genre for Panorama Programming. We brought a slab of fresh meat back from a rotting metropolis, and we’re serving it to you raw. Come and get it.

Many words come to mind when you hear the name CANNIBAL CORPSE, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate EternalGoatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black’ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.

Red Before Black‘ track-listing
1. Only One Will Die
2. Red Before Black
3. Code of the Slashers
4. Shedding My Human Skin
5. Remaimed
6. Firestorm Vengeance
7. Heads Shoveled Off

Iconic Drummer GENE HOGLAN of Brendon Small’s GALAKTIKON to Join NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers”

September 19th, 2017
by Celtic Bob


Metal drumming legend and Brendon Small’s Galaktikon rhythm master GENE HOGLAN is honored to announce that he will sit in with NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” house band, The 8G Band, from October 2 through October 5, 2017 as guest drummer. Hoglan joins the ranks of iconic drummers Abe Laboriel, Jr. (Paul McCartney), Brann Dailor (Mastodon), Vinnie Colaiuta (Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Sting), Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Danny Carey (Tool), Venzella Joy (Beyoncé) and others who have also held this position on the show.

“Late Night with Seth Meyers” airs on NBC weeknights at 12:35e/11:35c. Visit www.nbc.com/late-night-with-seth-meyers for additional airing information.

“Words cannot express how elated I am to have been invited to man the throne for the mighty 8G Band on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” in the first week of October,” says GENE HOGLAN. “I’m really looking forward to this experience, and it’s an honor to be a part of such a fun show. Thank you to all who have helped put this together, you have my esteemed gratitude.”

GENE HOGLAN has recently been promoting his latest musical endeavor, Brendon Small’s Galaktikon, alongside musician/actor/writer/comedian Brendon Small and bassist extraordinaire Bryan Beller. Their latest release, Galakitkon II: Become The Storm – a high-stakes intergalactic extreme rock/metal album released on August 25, 2017 via Megaforce Records/MRI – is available now via www.galaktikon.com. In its first week of release, Galakitkon II: Become The Storm charted at #1 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart, in addition to charting as the #9 Independent Album, #9 Hard Rock Album, #10 Rock Album, and #40 in Top Current Albums.

Hoglan has also been promoting his latest DVD, The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two, which is out now. The DVD features the Clock himself breaking down some of his favorite beats, telling stories and playing along with tracks from several of his most legendary projects. An impressive roster of high-caliber musicians also weigh in over the course of the feature, offering stories about Hoglan and their experiences working with him. Fans can order physical and digital copies here in Canada and here in North America/elsewhere worldwide.

While renowned as a progenitor and leading legend of double bass drumming, GENE HOGLAN – a.k.a. “The Atomic Clock” – is equally known for blending seamlessly into any given style. Hoglan’s humility sets him apart, making him one of the most sought-after drummers in hard rock and metal. Hoglan boasts an impressive 30+ year history as a member of some of heavy metal’s most influential bands, including Dark Angel, Death, Strapping Young Lad and Dethklok. He has also performed with metal luminaries Anthrax, Testament, Opeth, Fear Factory, Devin Townsend and many others. Guitar legend Steve Vai and Black Sabbath’s Bill Ward have named Hoglan their favorite drummer, with Ward adding that Hoglan is “this generation’s John Bonham”. Drumming icon Dennis Chambers (Parliament, Eric Clapton, Steely Dan, Santana) has said he is astounded by Hoglan’s talent, taste and feel.

GnR Alumni GILBY CLARKE on a STRING OF SEVEN HEADLINE CANADIAN DATES

September 19th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Gilby Clarke embarks with his solo band on a Canadian micro tour – kicking off in Barrie, ON at Mavericks. The Gilby Clarke band is a well-oiled three-piece that comprises of Gilby Clarke (vocals/guitar), EJ Curse (bass) and Dustin Steinke (drums). Opening up the night is Ontario’s very own The Road Heavy!

Clarke will also circle back to Toronto on September 30th to The Opera House for the KISS CF Goodbye charity benefit concert. This special concert will raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis – the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. At present, there is no cure. CF is a multi-system disorder that mainly affects the digestive system and lungs.

Joining Clarke at this charity event will be: Rock And Roll Over (KISS Tribute), Ozone Baby (Led Zeppelin Tribute), Staring At The Sun (U2 Tribute).?

Best known for his tour of duty with Guns n’ Roses, Gilby Clarke was 17 when he traded Cleveland for Hollywood. A troubadour in the Ronnie Wood tradition: a barroom brawler with a Stones-y swagger, plus a catalog of well-written ditties. Clarke joined Guns in the early 90’s as the Use Your Illusion tour kicked off. He appeared on the bands Spaghetti Incident, Live Era ’88-’91 & Greatest Hits albums. Surviving the longest tour in history – Clarke went solo & came out swinging with PawnShop Guitars. A catalog of rock n roll purity: Tijuana Jail, Cure Me… Or Kill Me… & The Stone’s Dead Flowers put this record on many year-end top 10 lists.

TOUR DATES:

9/21 – Mavericks – Barrie, ON
9/22 – Maxwells – Waterloo, ON
9/23 – Col Mustards – Newmarket, ON
9/26 – This Ain’t Hollywood – Hamilton, ON
9/27 – The Warehouse – St. Catharines, ON
9/28 – The Rockpile – Toronto, ON
9/29 – The Brass Monkey – Ottawa, ON
9/30 – The Opera House – Toronto, ON Kiss CF Goodbye 3 – Special Appearance

BLACKMORE’S NIGHT “Winter Carols” with three new songs – digital 9/22, CD 10/13

September 19th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Ritchie Blackmore has been known worldwide for his guitar shredding in Deep Purple and Rainbow. He has also shown hints of his penchant for medieval music in both of those bands. That 18th and 19th Century love, though, has only truly come to the fore within the acoustic context of his “renaissance rock” project, Blackmore’s Night. Together, with award-winning vocalist / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist Candice Night, (often compared to Stevie Nicks and Karen Carpenter), Blackmore’s Night is currently celebrating the band’s 20th Anniversary.

Passionate about the musical melodies and styles of the past, combined with their love for the spirit of the holiday season, they recorded Winter Carols to share with their fans, friends and Blackmore’s Night families. Winter Carols is holiday music at its best, performed and sung as it was hundreds of years ago, when the peasants and royalty alike shared the jovial spirit of the holidays. For this very special re-release of their holiday album (out on digital formats on September 22, on CD October 13), Blackmore’s Night included three brand new recordings of “Deck The Halls”, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, and “Oh Christmas Tree”. Each song, arranged by Ritchie Blackmore, is lovingly filtered through the Blackmore’s Night prism, given an eclectic Renaissance touch topped with Candice Night’s ethereal vocals.

It’s this love of Renaissance-based and classical melodies that endears Blackmore’s Night to hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide. Their unique genre is classified as “fantasy music for all ages.”

“The holiday season has always embodied joy, love, peace and togetherness,” says Candice. “We are entranced by the magic of the season. The sentiments of the holidays are what we try to express in our music year round—so this CD is a natural progression. All the music we craft and create has always been about love, unity and friendship. These songs as a whole are beautiful unifying carols. Feel the warmth of friendship! Everyone can join in.”

“The origin of the word ‘carol’ means ‘dance’,’” adds Ritchie. “I am naturally attracted to these melodies. As a kid, I would go from house to house during the holiday time and sing them just to earn some money. As an adult, I thought I could play them and make more money!”

Celebrate the holiday season with Blackmore’s Night!

For more information, please visit www.Blackmores-Night.com.

Track Listing

1) Deck The Halls
2) God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
3) Oh Christmas Tree
4) Hark! The Herald Angels Sing/Come All Ye Faithful
5) I Saw Three Ships
6) Winter (Basse Dance)
7) Ding Dong Merrily On High
8) Ma-O-Tzur
9) Good King Wencesla
10) Lord Of The Dance/Simple Gifts
11) We Three Kings
12) Wish You Were Here
13) Emmanuel
14) Christmas Eve

REVOLUTION SAINTS Release Third Video, “I Wouldn’t Change A Thing,” From ‘Light In The Dark’ Album Due Out October 13

September 19th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

REVOLUTION SAINTS—Deen Castronovo (ex-Journey, Bad English), Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake, DIO), Jack Blades (Night Ranger, Damn Yankees)—released the third video, “I Wouldn’t Change A Thing,” from their highly anticipated second album, seen above.

It was directed by Maurizio Del Piccolo of Moviedel, and it was shot at Villa Bossi in Bodio Lomnago, Varese, Italy.

“I Wouldn’t Change A Thing” was originally written by Richard Page from Mr. Mister,” says Castronovo, “and Serafino wanted us to do it our way. The first time I heard it, I got a bit choked up. It’s a beautiful ballad that Doug got a hold of and put his stamp on it.”

“The song was filmed at magnificent historic home outside of Milano, Italy,” Aldrich continues. “It was a rainy day and really had a great vibe for the video. We spent most of the day going for the basic shots and the actors did the love scenes later. There was some steamy stuff going on in the script and I decided it was a bit too racy for me, so I decided to help the chef with his pesto sauce! It is a beautiful song and a nice video. I was very happy about how the solo guitar worked and Deen just shines!!”

LIGHT IN THE DARK is due out October 13 on Frontiers Music Srl, and will be available on CD, CD/DVD Deluxe Edition (includes live bonus tracks on the CD and on the DVD, footage from the band’s first-ever live performance captured at Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan this past April, a “Making Of” mini-documentary, and music videos for “Light In The Dark” and “I Wouldn’t Change A Thing”), Vinyl, and as a special Limited Edition Box Set (includes the Deluxe Edition CD/DVD, 180g Vinyl, T-shirt (size L), poster, lithograph and sticker). Pre-orders for all formats can be made at the following locations:

Pre-orders: http://radi.al/LightInTheDark
• Frontiers: http://www.frontiers.shop
• Amazon: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkAmazon
• iTunes: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkiTunes
• Google Play: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkGooglePl

You can also listen to REVOLUTION SAINTS’ newest music on Spotify here: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkSpotify

LIGHT IN THE DARK builds off the classic melodic rock style of the debut, but fans should prepare for a somehow even more inspired set and a few (pleasant) surprises. Inspiring, uplifting, emotionally powerful, and thoughtful, this album WILL be the soundtrack to many a moment in your life.

BRIAN VOLLMER Of HELIX’s Second Solo LP, ‘Get Your Hands Dirty’ Available For Pre-Order

September 19th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

GET YER HANDS DIRTY is now ready for pre-sale on both CD and vinyl. Brent Doerner did the artwork, and once agan, did a fantastic job. I must mention the photography here as well…Victor Azziz did the cover art (Victor has been my personal photographer for many years now and has been the guy behind the lens for many Helix albums) and Ted Van Boort took the back cover shot which everyone has been raving about since he posted it on Facebook after our Ancaster show. But the whole story behind this disc has been one of synchronicity. Everything just fell into place as we went along-to Gavin agreeing to do the disc in the first place-right up to the last recording session which had Danko Jones add his voice to the lead track.

This is NOT a Helix album. The sound is much more “blues rock” than it is “heavy metal.” I expect the song to go to radio by the end of next week, so hopefully we’ll pick up a few stations across Canada.

HOW YOU CAN HELP SUPPORT ME:
Yesterday John Hockley (my computer guy) came over to the house and we spent the entire day loading the songs onto CD Baby for digital download. It’s a difficult process for those of us who are computer challenged; hence the reason for bringing in John. Now that we’ve gone through the process of loading all the info to the CD Baby site we have to wait for 8 days until the cover songs receive the mechanical licenses, which allows me to put them up there.

So…if you want to support me on this, the obvious way is to buy a digital download of the album, or a hard copy CD, or a vinyl album. When the single GET YER HANDS DIRTY is released next week I’ll probably post the song to Facebook as well.

MACHINE HEAD ANNOUNCE WORLD TOUR FOR UPCOMING ALBUM, CATHARSIS

September 18th, 2017
by Arto Lehtinen

It’s been far too long since we’ve demolished venues in America, we have had an awesome and productive break writing our new album “Catharsis”, but now it’s time for Machine Head to go melt some faces!! The reaction to our last “Evening With” tours in America were nothing short of incredible, so once again these dates will be “Evening With” and will see us performing 2 1/2 to 3 hours every night with no opening bands.

We LOVED performing as an “Evening With” for you Head Cases, and you guys loved it as well, the freedom to do whatever the fuck we wanted for as long as we wanted every night was liberating. It’s not what everyone else is doing, and frankly, there are not a lot of bands who could even pull it off, but Machine Head CAN pull it off, and we are excited as fuck to do it again. We are carving our own path here, playing by our own rules, and as an artist, it’s the best feeling in the world!

No festivals period, no 45 minute slots, no supporting some stupid DJ, no parking lots in a rain storm, The Head will only be “Headlining”, so come on down and rage!!

MACHINE HEAD recently wrapped up recording their 9th full-length album with Zack Ohren (FALLUJAH, ALL SHALL PERISH) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. An official release date has yet to be confirmed, but a Jan. 2018 release is expected. More details to follow shortly.

MACHINE HEAD will also be offering an extremely limited number of VIP Packages in 2 tiers at www.machinehead.vip.

TOM KEIFER Deluxe Edition Of Debut Album, ‘The Way Life Goes,’ Set For Release October 20

September 16th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

 

TOM KEIFER once sang, “You’re only going once around the ride.”

He’s proving that theory wrong with the highly anticipated release of THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION, an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, THE WAY LIFE GOES, chock full of bonus content and special artwork.

THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION is finally set for release October 20 on Cleopatra Records. Pre-orders are now available on Amazon and on Cleopatra’s website. The package will include the original album that has been remastered by Richard Dodd (Kings of Leon, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum). It also has two brand new studio tracks recorded in Nashville by three-time Grammy® Award-winner Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) with KEIFER and his bandmates (#keiferband: Tony Higbee, Billy Mercer, Paul Simmons, Paul Taylor, Savannah Keifer, and Kendra Chantelle). Fans will finally get to hear the long-awaited studio recording of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends,” which KEIFER performs at all of his concerts, plus a powerful new take on the Cinderella classic “Nobody’s Fool,” newly recorded as a duet with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.

“The reason that I picked up

guitar, the reason that I sing the way I do, was all because of that guy,” said Hale of KEIFER’s influence on her at a young age. The two first performed “Nobody’s Fool” live together in Atlantic City, NJ in September 2013.
“I remember the first time seeing Lzzy perform live at the House of Blues show in Atlantic City and being absolutely floored by the power of her voice and performance,” KEIFER continues. “She’s an amazing artist and has been a great inspiration to me as well.”

There will also be a bonus DVD with music videos, tour clips, and “The Way Life’s Goin,’” a 30-minute documentary produced by Tammy Vega (KEIFER’s longtime official photographer) about the creation of the bonus tracks, exclusive interviews with the band filmed during the new recording sessions, and live footage.

THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION will be wrapped in an all new six-panel digipak designed by artist David Calcano (creator of the Fantoons comic strip series) with 20 pages of one-of-a-kind unique illustrations depicting each song.

As KEIFER explains, “Everything from the new artwork, documentary, videos and bonus tracks contained in the DELUXE EDITION is a sum of all the amazingly talented people who came into our world as a result of the initial release. The two bonus tracks were specifically chosen and recorded as we felt them both to be special collaborations that came about while touring for THE WAY LIFE GOES.”

New band members Jarred Pope (drums) and Kory Myers (keyboards/vocals) join the #keiferband lineup in 2017. Writing has begun for a follow-up to THE WAY LIFE GOES with recording slated for Fall 2018.

Upon its initial release, THE WAY LIFE GOES garnered rave reviews. To wit:

“A collection of 14 blues howlers, Stones-y rock and, yes, big ballads, the album calls to mind Cinderella but with an even more rootsy undercurrent.”
–Joseph Hudak, Rolling Stone

“…14 songs that stay true to form – killer blues-rock playing and tones, hooks galore, and strong songwriting. If you’re a fan of harder-edged rock and long to hear genuinely enjoyable new tunes, it may be just the thing; the opener, ‘Solid Ground,’ offers pure Keifer guitar and vocals with a feel reminiscent the Stones’ Exile On Main Street while the remaining tracks are, much like his life the last 15 years, an up-and-down ride.”
–Ward Meeker, Vintage Guitar

“…the record features such vital, vibrant guitar tones and parts that are immediate and honest. They also have that cool, interlocking, layered quality that made so many classic rock albums so, well, classic. Keifer flat-out knows how to play vibey guitar parts with ungodly tone, and fans of the Stones, Zeppelin, Steve Marriott, and early Aerosmith should definitely take notice. And, although you wouldn’t wish hemorrhaging vocal cords on anyone, this guy is singing better than ever to complement his great 6-string parts.”
–Matt Blackett, Guitar Player

“THE WAY LIFE GOES marks the first release of any kind by Keifer since Cinderella’s last record, 1994’s STILL CLIMBING. In many ways, it picks up right where the band left off. The first single, ‘The Flower Song,’ echoes ‘Maggie May,’ the familiar grit in Keifer’s voice approximating Faces-era Rod Stewart; but for the most part the album replicates the blend of pounding hard rock, soaring ballads and blues and country tinges that characterized Cinderella’s sound beginning with LONG COLD WINTER.”
–Shaun Brady, Philadelphia City Paper,

“’The Flower Song,’ his premiere solo offering, smacks of the Black Crowes/the Faces.”
–Katherine Turman, Village Voice (NY)

THREAT SIGNAL announce details for new album “Disconnect”

September 16th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

 

Canada’s melodic thrash metal powerhouse, THREAT SIGNAL, premiere the first single from their long-awaited fourth studio album, “Disconnect”, set to be released on November 10th worldwide via Agonia Records. The band’s first new song in six years, “Exit The Matrix”, is available in the form of a lyric video, een above.

Since their critically acclaimed debut offering “Under Reprisal” (2006), which won the “Canadian Recording Of The Year Award” at the Hamilton Music Awards, THREAT SIGNAL became internationally recognised as one of the most interesting modern acts in thrash metal. Their latest two installments, the intense “Vigilance” (2009) and reinvented “Threat Signal” (2011), have both met with unrelenting hype, with each generating growing interest within the metal community. Combining the complexity of thrash metal, with a more contemporary groove sound involving technical rhythms and melodic musical passages, the band finally returns with its fourth studio album, “Disconnect”.

Founder & vocalist Jon Howard commented: “Well, we made it to album number 4! To say its been a tough ride would be an understatement, but as the shit piles on, we’ll keep shovelling that shit off!! So we began writing this album back in 2012, and continued writing over the next 3 years until we were able to hit the studio again. Basically our thought process while writing was to not have an end goal of what the album should sound like. We didn’t plan to make a really heavy album, or a melodic album, or take anyone else’s input on what we should sound like. We basically just wrote songs with a clear and open mindset until Disconnect grew together. This album ranges from melodic metal, to hard rock, to thrash metal, and even down to a chill acoustic tune, its a roller coaster of a ride while staying true to the Threat Signal sound. You will feel the energy from all of our previous albums plus something new. A big thanks to Agonia records for believing in us and finally getting this album released. Also a HUGE thanks to the fans for sticking with us over the years. I’d like to dedicate our album Disconnect to my fallen friend and former Threat Signal drummer Norm Killeen. May you be jamming with the best of them in the next life!!! Peace and love”.

“Disconnect” was recorded and produced by vocalist Jon Howard and lead guitarist Travis Montgomery. Mixing and mastering were done by Mark Lewis (DevilDriver, Whitechapel, Battlecross, Coal Chamber). Artwork for the album was created by Ludovic Cordelieres of Rusalkadesign (Kamelot).

Tracklist:
1. Elimination Process
2. Nostalgia
3. Walking Alone
4. Exit The Matrix
5. Falling Apart
6. Aura
7. Betrayal
8. To Thine Own Self Be True
9. Dimensions
10. Terminal Madness
11. Eyes Sewn Shut*

*BOX CD exclusive.
