METAL MELTDOWN; EXTREME “Pornograffitti Live 25/Metal Meltdown” Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Out October 14

September 19th, 2016
by Celtic Bob

Last year marked the 25th anniversary of Extreme’s classic multi-Platinum, Grammy® nominated PORNOGRAFFITTI, the definitive album of the band’s career. To mark the anniversary, PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN will be released September 23 by the award-winning production company Rock Fuel Media in association with Loud & Proud Records as part of their four-part “Metal Meltdown” DVD series. The concert film captures the Boston band performing the album PORNOGRAFFITTI in its entirety.

Directed by Brian Lockwood (Bon Jovi, Metallica, Motley Crue), the PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN package includes a Blu-ray, DVD, and audio CD of the complete concert that was filmed on May 30, 2015 at The Joint at the world famous Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. It also features Rockshow, a bonus documentary that takes fans through Extreme’s story, with exclusive interviews, ‘80s archive footage, and an exclusive photo gallery. Mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, it’s now set for release October 14. A trailer can be seen here.

“It was a great thrill to perform PORNOGRAFFITTI in its entirety,” says singer Gary Cherone. “Some of these songs were never played live before so we had to go back and relearn them for the tour.  The album was a watershed moment in the bands career…it’s when we came in to our own and it will always be special.”

As guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt continues, “The band always prided itself on its live performance. Over the years, some of these songs have evolved where the band actually plays them better now than when we had recorded them. Hope you enjoy it. “

Extreme achieved their greatest success with their 1990 album PORNOGRAFFITTI, which peaked at #10 on the Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart, and was certified multi-Platinum. Musically, PORNOGRAFFITTI is dominated by blistering guitar riffs, often with funky, syncopated timing, and incendiary, high-speed rock/metal solos. The record provided Bettencourt with widespread admiration from rock guitar enthusiasts and continual exposure in leading guitar playing publications. But it was the acoustic ballad single, “More Than Words,” that reached #1 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart and was nominated for a Grammy® Award for “Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.” The subsequent single, “Hole Hearted,” another acoustic track, was also successful, rising to #4 on the same chart. “Decadence Dance” and “Get the Funk Out” were also released as singles both landing on Billboard’s Rock chart and becoming fan favorites.

To date, the Grammy-nominated EXTREME have released five albums, plus a greatest hits set—selling over 10 million records worldwide.  The band’s trademark sound is a mix of hard rock funk in the spirit and style of their predecessors Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Queen and Van Halen—fueled by BETTENCOURT’s signature guitar flights and CHERONE’s resonant vocals—and matched with a social consciousness in their lyrics.

Award-winning producer Barry Summers of Rock Fuel Media commented, “It was a real privilege to produce PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN in celebration of PORNOGRAFFITI, to have the opportunity to work first-hand with such high caliber musicians and audio purists. Over 25 years after this iconic album was released, we captured the band at their very best. Watching Nuno Bettencourt’s off-the-charts guitar solos is simply mind-blowing, as confirmed by Queen’s Brian May and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, whom we filmed paying homage to the Guitar God himself in the RockShow documentary. One of the highlights of the documentary is a moment where Gary and Nuno are sitting on the doorstep of Gary’s childhood home, and they perform a spontaneous version of ‘More Than Words.’”

Here’s the complete song listing of PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN:

1.    Decadence Dance
2.    Li’l Jack Horny
3.    When I’m President
4.    Get the Funk Out
5.    More Than Words
6.    Money (In God We Trust)
7.    It (‘s a Monster)
8.    Pornograffitti
9.    When I First Kissed You
10.  Suzi (Wants Her All Day What?)
11.  Flight of the Wounded Bumblebee
12.  He-Man Woman Hater
13.  Song For Love
14.  Hole Hearted
15.  Play With Me*
16.  Cupid’s Dead*

* Songs do not appear on the audio CD.

Interview by Robert Cavuoto

Testament

 

For over three decades Testament with Chuck Billy [vocals], Eric Peterson [guitar], Alex Skolnick [guitar], Steve DiGiorgio [bass], and Gene Hoglan [drums] have consistently delivered unadulterated, unbridled, and unbreakable metal in its purest form without compromise. They now return in 2016 with a new CD due out October 28th via Nuclear Blast entitled Brotherhood of the Snake which promises to have more teeth and bite than ever before.

I caught up with vocalist, Chuck Billy, to talk about the Brotherhood of the Snake and the unique storyline that fuels the lyrical direction.

IN FLAMES – announce new drummer!

September 19th, 2016
by EvilG

After the departure of their longtime friend and drummer Daniel Svensson, the Swedish heavy music institution IN FLAMES was looking for a new rhythm master – now their search is finally over and the new fifth member of the band is… Joe Rickard!

Meet Joe in this newest webisode, where he speaks about his first meeting with IN FLAMES and gives a little guided tour through the studio where »Battles« was recorded:

“As you know — our longtime drummer, friend, and brother that is the almighty Daniel Svensson has left IN FLAMES to pursue other dreams. He is still with us in spirit when we write our music, in our lives, and someone whom we will cherish forever. We are truly grateful for the nearly 20 years that Daniel devoted to IN FLAMES”, the band states. “Because of each other, we’ grown exponentially as musicians and brothers. Our 12th studio album is the first we will release without Daniel since 1998, so entering the studio this time around was a bittersweet moment. At the time, we didn’ know who could even replace him, and making new music without him felt strange. We were missing a piece of IN FLAMES.”

But, of course, the show must go on and now the band is back with a new man behind the drumkit, who first joined the band while they recorded their upcoming album »Battles«:

“From February to April of 2016 we recorded our newest album, “” with legendary producer, Howard Benson. Howard and his team pushed our boundaries and kept our energy high every day while navigating us through a new process. Suddenly, we felt at home. Howard introduced us to one of his trusted and so talented studio drummers, Joe Rickard. Joe had formerly been a member of Grammy nominated RED, toured with numerous bands such as
Islander and RED, and has played drums on many successful albums for artists such as RED, Vamps, Starset, Brian “” Welch and our very own “”. Joe had such natural talent behind the kit; it seemed effortless. Once we witnessed him laying down drums to our own songs with parts we couldn’ have imagined better ourselves — we knew we had to have him join IN FLAMES.
During nearly two months recording in Los Angeles with Howard Benson, Joe quickly became not only a musician that we highly respected, but also a friend. We are proud and excited to finally announce that Joe Rickard will be taking over the drums for In Flames. We feel by adding such a talented and pure musician to our band and brotherhood that we are doing Daniel a great
justice in ensuring his hard work and talent will continue on.

Daniel, thank you for your incredible talent and time dedicated to this band and family that is In Flames. We are so honored to have had the privilege of playing music with you all of these years and we couldn’ have achieved so much without you.

Jesterheads, please welcome JOE RICKARD to IN FLAMES and make him feel welcome! We will see you all out on the road very soon.”

Make sure to see Joe live for the very first time on these tour dates:
November 6 – Tokyo, Japan @ Knotfest Japan
November 12 – Orlando, FL @ Kink Festival

With AVENGED SEVENFOLD and DISTURBED:
January 10 – Glasgow, UK @ The SSE Hydro

Universal Mind Project is a new act that released their debut album earlier in 2016. The band is led by guitarist Michael Alexander and singer Elina Laivera and they’ve gathered some well known people to feature on the album, titled THE JAGUAR PRIEST. Guests on the album are singer Nils K.Rue (Pagan’s Mind), Mark Jensen (Epica), Diego Valdez (Helker), Charlie Dominici (ex-Dream Theater) and Alessandro Bissa (Vision Divine) to name a few. I had the pleasure to talk to vocalist Elina and growler/guitarist Michael about working on the album, production, guests, a new label, and what the plans are in the future for the band. If you like the music of Avantasia, the Genius trilogy, or Soulspell, you have to check Universal Mind Project out. Enjoy.

LIGHTNING STRIKES sign worldwide deal with PURE LEGEND RECORDS

September 16th, 2016
by EvilG

Los Angeles, CA-based heavy metal band LIGHTNING STRIKES have signed a worldwide deal with PURE LEGEND RECORDS, a division of PURE STEEL RECORDS, for the release of their forthcoming eponymous debut album.

“All can say is that we are excited to be part of the Pure Legend Records roster worldwide”, states LIGHTNING STRIKES founder / drummer, Karpis Maksudian. “I think Pure Legend know the market very well and the people at the label will work hard to get ‘Lighting Strikes’ the attention it deserves and needs. We can’t wait to get this album out to all the metal heads who appreciate classic heavy metal.”

Originally formed in 1985, LIGHTNING STRIKES were briefly part of the bustling L.A. scene, releasing a now highly collectable 7” single in 1986, before the band went their separate ways in late 1987 despite drummer Karpis Maksudian’s attempts to carry on with a new line-up. Fast forward to 2011 when Maksudian began to assemble a new version of LIGHTNING STRIKES, featuring bassist Cat Tate (SNEW, RED AGAIN) who was part of the original band, guitarist Rob Math (LEATHERWOLF, PLAYER), and vocalist Nando Fernandes (HANGAR). Adding to the band’s fire power, Maksudian brought in a trio of guest players, keyboardist Derek Sherinian (DREAM THEATER, KISS), as well as Tony Martin (BLACK SABBATH) and Japanese visual kei star Noah (AVANCHICK) on lead vocals.

Lightning Strikes’ was mixed by Roy Z (JUDAS PRIEST, BRUCE DICKINSON, HELLOWEEN) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (HALFORD, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ANVIL).

LINE-UP:
Nando Fernandes (Hangar) – vocals
Rob Math (Leatherwolf, Player) – guitars
Cat Tate (Snew, Red Again) – bass
Karpis Maksudian – drums

Bolt Thrower – So when we carried his coffin to his final resting place, the Bolt Thrower drummer position was buried with him.

September 14th, 2016
by Arto Lehtinen

On behalf of ourselves and Kiddie’s family, we would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and support over the last 12 months. Together with Kiddie’s family we made the conscious decision to keep his unexpected death a private matter, and to take time out to deal with it all.

When Kiddie joined us back in 1994, although he was only 17, he instantly improved Bolt Thrower as a live band, and no one was more loyal to, and prouder to be in Bolt Thrower than him.
We spent over 20 years together, touring the world, with 3 different vocalists, but he was so much more than just a drummer to us. So when we carried his coffin to his final resting place, the Bolt Thrower drummer position was buried with him. He was, and will now forever remain THE Bolt Thrower drummer, our Powerhouse and friend Martin “Kiddie” Kearns.

As for the rest of us, Bolt Thrower has been our way of life for 30 years, never driven by money, fame or ego, but by our own personal principles and values that have guided us through life, and which bonded us as friends long before Bolt Thrower was even formed…

Jimmy Page on Facebook Live This Wednesday

September 14th, 2016
by Celtic Bob

14316776_1230068180398951_156966149244043290_n
On Wednesday, September 14, Jimmy Page will host an exclusive Led Zeppelin listening event at Olympic Studios in London featuring the worldwide debut of several previously unreleased tracks from THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS, just days prior to the set’s official release on September 16. The listening event, moderated by legendary BBC DJ Johnnie Walker, will be held before an intimate audience and streamed on Facebook Live starting at 7:30PM GMT (2:30pm ET), followed by a with conversation with Page and Walker. The evening will conclude with the world premiere of a new video of “What Is And What Should Never Be” from THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS.  Directed by Ariel Costa, the monochromatic video features a melding of classic Led Zeppelin live performance video with innovative animation.

Nearly 20 years ago, Led Zeppelin introduced BBC Sessions, an acclaimed two-disc set of live recordings selected from the band’s appearances on BBC radio between 1969 and 1971. The band will now unveil THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS, an updated version of the collection which has been newly remastered with supervision by Jimmy Page and expanded with eight unreleased BBC recordings, including three rescued from a previously “lost” session from 1969.

THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS will be available in multiple formats from Atlantic/Swan Song on September 16:

Deluxe Edition (3CD) – Remastered original album plus a third disc of unreleased audio.
Deluxe Edition Vinyl (5LP) – Remastered original album, plus a fifth LP of unreleased audio, on 180-gram vinyl
Digital Download – Remastered album and unreleased audio will both be available.
Super Deluxe Boxed Set (3CD/5LP)– This collection includes:
Remastered album. 2 CDs, each in a replica sleeve.
Unreleased audio on CD in a separate card sleeve.
Remastered album on 180-gram vinyl.
Unreleased audio on 180-gram vinyl.
High-def audio download card of all content at 96kHz/24 bit.
44-page book filled with photos of the band, the recording locations, BBC memorabilia, and session information.
High-quality print of the original album cover, the first 30,000 of which will be individually numbered.

BBC Sessions was originally released in 1997 and has been certified double platinum by the RIAA. THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS builds on that collection with a third disc that boasts eight unreleased performances. In addition, the set includes extensive session-by-session liner notes written by Dave Lewis. For the first time ever, it provides accurate details and notes about all of the band’s BBC sessions.

Musical highlights on this new collection include the debut of a long-lost radio session that has achieved near-mythic status among fans. Originally broadcast in April 1969, the session included three songs: “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” “You Shook Me,” and the only recorded performance of “Sunshine Woman.”

Also included are two unreleased versions of both “Communication Breakdown” and “What Is And What Should Never Be.” Separated by two years, the performances vividly demonstrate the young band’s rapid evolution over a short period of time.
