MADAME MAYHEM ANNOUNCES FALL TOUR DATES IN THE U.S. AND EUROPE/U.K.

August 30th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Madame Mayhem is a true rocker with an eclectic style in every aspect of life – merging theatricality with hard-hitting, rocking tunes. And coming this fall, fans worldwide will get the opportunity to experience this larger-than-life figure on a concert stage, as Madame Mayhem will be hitting the road with Austin John Winkler (formerly the voice of Hinder) and Smile Empty Soul this fall on the Love Sick Radio Tour (presented by M7 Agency) in the U.S.A., before heading over to Europe and the U.K. for dates with Fozzy and Hardcore Superstar. A trailer for the tour has been posted here: https://goo.gl/iSzYJY

“Excited to be part of this leg of the Love Sick Radio Tour with Austin John Winkler and Smile Empty Soul, presented by M7 Agency,” says Madame Mayhem. “I love Austin’s voice, and grew up listening to Hinder, and am a fan of Smile Empty Soul – ‘Bottom of a Bottle’ was a song that helped me when I was frustrated or upset growing up, and I love that song, so being able to watch them play every night after our set is going to be a blast. I am also super excited we get to perform in some areas we haven’t had the chance to play live for yet. Hope to see new and familiar faces out in the crowd. It’s also great that this run is right before we head over to the UK and Europe with Fozzy and Hardcore Superstar. Our sets will have the new not yet released songs as well as songs out now, so it will be cool to introduce these new songs to the world all jam packed in a couple of months!”

The singer has performed across the United States to packed rooms, including B.B.King Blues Club, The Roxy, The Viper Room, Bowery Ballroom, Knitting Factory, a residency at The Cutting Room, the Bluebird Café during Grammy nomination week, Shiprocked Cruise 2017, Sunfest 2017, Sturgis Buffalo Chip 2017, and has performed on national tours with renowned and respected artists such as Doro and Mushroomhead.

Madame Mayhem has been covered in both fashion and rock music media worldwide, which includes feature coverage in Aquarian Weekly, Brave Words, Fashion Style, Gannett, Guitar World, KNAC, Loudwire (her music videos have been top 10 for multiple weeks), New Noise, Revolver, The Day In Rock, listed in ROCKwell UnScene Magazine’s top 5 Best Female Vocalists of 2016, and more. Additionally, she made most added on the CMJ Loud Radio Charts with over 60 stations nationally in the United States.

And with a new album on the horizon (release date Friday, October 20th, 2017), Madame Mayhem is setting the stage for what promises to be a big 2018 with this string of worldwide tour dates in 2017!

Obey Your (Re)Master: METALLICA Announce Long Awaited ‘Puppets’ Box

August 30th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

A little over a year ago, we proudly reissued our first two albums remastered for the most advanced sound quality possible along with special deluxe editions including previously unreleased audio and video recordings. We promised to give that love to the entire catalog, and we’re back today with all the details about the release of Master of Puppets, coming to your favorite music retailer and Metallica.com on November 10th.

Available in both physical and digital versions (digital available on November 10th), we’ve got several options for your Metalli-pleasure… CD, vinyl, 3-CD expanded edition and deluxe box set. The 3-CD set includes the remastered album, a disc that is a combination of rough mixes, demos and an interview, and a disc featuring a mix of live songs that are sequenced into a typical set list from the Damage, Inc. tour. The limited edition deluxe box set includes unreleased demos, rough mixes, interviews and live tracks, many of which have never even been available in the collector or bootleg community and were pulled from our personal collections. There’s also a 108-page hardcover book with rare and never before seen photos and essays from those who were there with us for the wild ride. All in all, there are three LPs, ten CDs, a cassette, two DVDs, a lithograph with art by Pushead, a folder with handwritten lyrics, and if that isn’t enough to push you over the edge, we’ve also thrown in a set of six buttons (!).

Pre-order your copy now and we’ll send you a digital remastered version of “Disposable Heroes” while 3-CD and deluxe box pre-orders will also receive a download of “The Thing That Should Not Be” live at the Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, IL recorded on May 25, 1986. Several additional instant grats will be sent to all pre-orders between now and November 10th.

Deluxe box sets are limited edition collectors’ items, so get yours before they are gone! You may pre-order all the configurations at the Met Store now, available at your local record stores around the world on Friday, November 10th.

Nino Helfrich To Release ‘Hourglass’ On September 1st

August 28th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Biography:

Hockey goalies truly are a breed of their own. Being individuals in a team sport, they are often labeled as weird and quirky. A special nature that worked well for Nino Helfrich, not only in sports but also in music. After dropping the hockey stick and picking up the guitar, Helfrich reached a high technical level, thus being completly self-taught.

The release of his debut album “Dead Bodies In Motion” marked the beginning of his solo career in 2016. With his technical yet melodic instrumental music he’s in good company. On the album he collaborated with the US guitar virtuoso Angel Vivaldi, who contributed a guest solo to the song ‘Welcome To the Wasteland’. Following the album, Helfrich played several local instrumental shows and supported the Ukrainian band JINJER in July 2017.

With his second album “Hourglass”, which will be released in September 2017, Helfrich does not only shows his guitar playing, but also introduces vocals to his music for the first time. Therefore, Helfrich collaborated with the well-known guest singers Björn Strid of Soilwork, Chris Clancy of Mutiny Within and Wearing Scars, as well as Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay.

“Hourglass” Tracklist:

1. Your Own Way (feat. Björn Strid)

2. The End (feat. Chris Clancy)

3. Let Me Sleep (feat. Christoph Wieczorek)

4. Day Of Reckoning (feat. Björn Strid)

5. Hourglass (feat. Chris Clancy)

6. Facing Fear ( feat. Björn Strid)

7. Apocalypse Inside (feat. Chris Clancy)

8. Pull The Trigger (feat. Björn Strid)

Credits:

Produced, written and recorded by Nino Helfrich

Reamping, Mixing, Mastering by Christoph Wieczorek at Sawdust Recordings

Vocals recorded by Björn Strid, Chris Clancy and Christoph Wieczorek

Lyrics written by Jenny Smiles

WEAPONS OF ANEW To Release “THE COLLISION OF LOVE AND HATE” And Set To Tour America With TESLA

August 28th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Weapons of Anew, the dynamic new band that features Freddy Ordine, Ray West, Stefan “Reno” Cutrupi, Chris Manfre, and new guitarist Kris Norris will release their debut recording, “The Collision of Love and Hate” on September 15, 2017 on OK Good Records. The quintet will then hit the road with Tesla on September 19, through October 5, 2017.

Weapons of Anew’s debut, “The Collision of Love and Hate” was produced and engineered by James F. Murphy (Havok, Necromancing The Stone, Product of Hate), mixed by Mike Ferretti (Sevendust, Warren Haynes), and mastered by Ted Jensen.

“We are all super excited to have our record coming out and an amazing tour to launch the release,” states an elated Freddy Ordine. “It means the world to us! We have been extremely lucky with touring and getting to open for larger established bands.”

Speaking about the tour, Ray West said,
“I’m very psyched to go out on the Tesla tour. I’ve been a Tesla fan for a long time. I also happen to think Jeff Keith has one of the coolest voices around. For me it’s a real privilege to be playing for their audiences. I have a good feeling we will connect with them. I’m all in, all positive!” Ordine remembered being a kid when Tesla’s “Five Man Acoustic Jam ” came out, “I dug it. So it’s always an honor to be able to tour with an artist I grew up listening to.”

“Playing Rock is a privilege that I don’t take for granted,” says West. “Performing live to an audience is very powerful and humbling at the same time. Fans at our shows can expect the high energy, emotionally charged assault, we have always delivered.” Ordine adds, “A total assault on their senses, full on every night.”

Earlier this year, Weapons of Anew halted their recording sessions to go on tour with Alter Bridge. “When we went out with Alter Bridge, as Weapons of Anew,” states West, “we had never played a live show together before. I think we learned a lot about ourselves as performers and that our music translated well to a live audience.” Ordine states, “We were able to really dial the songs in on the Alter Bridge tour. They are exactly where we wanted them. They are burnt into us all now.” West continues, “Let’s face it, most people don’t go out to see the 1st band on a 3-band bill, so winning people over was our mission. We all worked very hard and as a band we felt it paid off. Audiences were very generous to us, but every fan that talked to us after the shows, asked ‘We really liked you guys, how can I hear more songs? Where can I get the album?’ Now we can say, well it’s right here!”

Weapons of Anew are set to launch their live assault.

Weapons of Anew and Tesla tour dates:

09/19/17 Tue. Santander PAC, Reading, PA
09/20/17 Wed. The Paramount, Huntington, NY

Metal Blade Records – Interview with owner Brian Slagel

August 28th, 2017
by Metal-Rules.com UK Team

Metal Blade Records has existed since 1982, and without Brian Slagel, the metal scene would be a different one. There was no way to turn down the opportunity to talk to him via Skype, not even being on holidays in the middle of nowhere in France while having a barbecue, this HAD to be done! After a quick unofficial chat about wines, we got the interview started.

Guitarist Tommy Bolan discusses about Warlock, Triumph and Agony 30’th Anniversary shows and more

August 27th, 2017
by Marko Syrjala

TOMMY BOLAN

Warlock was a German heavy metal band, formed originally in 1982. The band gained popularity and commercial success in Europe in the mid-1980s, due also to the personality and stage presence of female lead vocalist Doro Pesch. Warlock supported on tour successful metal bands, such as Judas Priest and Megadeth and they also performed on some of the biggest metal festivals including Monsters of Rock at Castle Donington in 1986. A couple of months later the band relocated to the US and also went through a few line-up changes. Guitarist Peter Szigeti and bassist Frank Rittel left the band they were replaced by American musicians Tommy Bolan and Tommy Henriksen. The new lineup started working new material with acclaimed producer Joey Balin, and as a result, the band released TRIUMPH AND AGONY (1987) which is still the band’s most successful album to date. Although the album was a big success, there were more changes to come. By the end of the decade, Doro Pesch was the sole original member who remained in the band, and she was forced to change the name to Doro for legal reasons. Doro has continued her successful career as a solo artist, but Warlock has reunited with different lineups for festival appearances and special occasions since 2003, under the name Warlock 1986. In 2017, Doro announced that she’s going to reunite with TRIUMPH AND AGONY era guitarist Tommy Bolan and the band would do a selected shows to celebrate the 30’th Anniversary of the album under the name Doro Pesch’s Warlock. The first show took its place in Swedenrock Festival on June. There I had a pleasure to meet Tommy and discuss all things related to his time with Warlock, reuniting with Doro and his other career steps including working with Richie Ramone. Read on!

Metal Missionaries The Documentary: Conversations With Christian Music’s Most Extreme Artists

August 26th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Metal Missionaries The Documentary, the first full-length documentary about the extreme Christian Metal scene, will be released on September 15th,2017 with pre-orders beginning September 1st, 2017. You’ll see that although their music may be aggressive and they may not look like Christians, their hearts burst with the Holy Spirit. They don’t need a label or a collar to know who they are; they are missionaries who take their faith not into the deepest reaches of the jungle but into dim, dirty rock clubs and dusty music festivals night after night to wash the crowds clad in black t-shirts and denim in a sonic flood of God’s unfailing love for them.

The genre of Christian heavy metal is no longer characterized by Stryper’s trademark yellow-and-black spandex. Instead, it’s found on the stages of the wildly popular Warped Tour, it’s featured in the pages of secular music magazines like AP and Guitar World, it draws thousands of fans into rural Illinois every year for the Cornerstone Festival, and its bands garner thunderous applause from hard rockers at events like “The Revolver Golden Gods Awards.” And, while the scene has changed from eyeliner and leather to bushy beards and breakdowns, the musical message has remained the same: God’s love for us knows no bounds and the free gift of grace is spoken in every language. That includes the language of distorted Marshall Stacks that invite those who hear to worship Him with shouts of praise and swirling circle pits.

Curiously enough, there might be enough similarities to refute the fact that these two ideas cannot coexist within the same universe. Death, pain, and suffering are all themes that metal musicians embrace, while Christianity was formed on the basis of its original followers being persecuted and killed for following a savior who gave his blood and died for our sins. So which is it? Do Christianity and heavy metal mix together like oil and water? Or is Christianity as metal as it gets?

Metal Missionaries The Documentary incorporates live concert footage, one on one interviews with band members (secular and non-secular) as well as archive footage and off camera narration. The film transports the viewers back stage behind the scenes on order to get an in-depth look into the hearts and minds of extreme Christian metal musicians from unsigned bands traversing the globe in vans to major label acts riding in luxury buses the messages are the same.
