VENOM Reveal Stunning From The Very Depths Cover Art!

December 4th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

Layout 1Album Out January 27 Via Spinefarm Records
 

VENOM announced the January 27 release of From The Very Depths (Spinefarm Records) last week, news that was met with elation among the metal community, from tastemakers to fans. The metal icons, who are pretty much responsible for authoring their own genre, have followed up the album release news by sharing the two-horns-up album artwork.

The cover is visually arresting, featuring skeletal beings bathed in red and orange tones. The image is dominated by the instantly recognizable VENOM logo, and is a natural successor to the artwork for previous album, 2011’s Fallen Angels, also released via Spinefarm.

And to think this is merely the cover! The album’s accompanying music slays, and early praise indicates that this could be one VENOM’s best releases…ever. Even the album title is 100 per cent ‘Venomous’, referencing the band’s infamous live intro tape.

Screw the holiday season. January 27 can’t get here fast enough!

Schecter-sponsored guitarist and vocalist Jacklyn Paulette states, “This song was definitely interesting to play on acoustic guitars, but I think playing it this way really brought out the guitar melodies that tend to get a little buried when everything is in full blast.”

“A large portion of this song was actually written on the acoustic guitar, and it was later dissected and translated to the electric form you hear on the album,” adds guitarist Ryan Heggum.

NEW SPONSORSHIP ANNOUNCED!

Today marks the beginning of REQUIEM’s new sponsorship with MESA/Boogie amps! Since 1969, MESA/Boogie has been an exclusive American Custom Shop dedicated to creating the ultimate instruments of personal, musical expression — both sonically and stylistically. To this day, no other amplifier company offers more ways to make your tone your own than MESA/Boogie.

Garey Noble of MESA/Boogie Artist Relations states, “MESA/Boogie welcomes REQUIEM to the Mesa Artist family – happy to have them on-board!”

Vocalist Steve Juliano adds, “It’s an absolute honor to be a part of the MESA/Boogie family. They pride themselves with amazing quality of product, and we stand tall behind their name! So excited to be working with them!”

REQUIEM’s brand new album, The Unexplainable Truth, is out now via Cleopatra Records (E1)! Make sure to order your copy now via http://geni.us/Requiem! Featuring vocalist Steve Juliano (formerly of popular metalcore group I Am Ghost), The Unexplainable Truth combines dark melodies and soaring orchestras with vicious metal guitars and bass.

Australian Hard Rockers DEAD CITY RUINS To Release New Album

December 4th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

Screen_Shot_2014-12-03_at_6.26.04_AM

Splicing the musicianship of 70’s and 80’s metal and the soul catching riffs of bluesy rock with the intensity and “f*ck ‘em all” attitude of punk rock, Melbourne Australia’s Dead City Ruins have been hard at work carving out a path of their very own.

Featuring Jake Wiffen (vocals), Tommy Teabag (guitar), Sean Blanchard (guitar), Andy Alkemade (drums) and Tony Alkemade (bass), Dead City Ruins is a working class hard rock band fueled by what life throws at them … good times, bad times, disappointments, achievements, and life in the cruel fuckin’ city!

On January 20th the band will release the follow-up to their 2011 debut album, Midnight Killer with a new self-titled offering via Metalville Records.

The new album, which was engineered by James Lugo (Iron Maiden, Bruce Springsteen, Dokken), features ten tracks in total including standouts such as, “Happenzella”, “Til Death”, and a wholehearted tribute to the late Ronnie James Dio with an original track aptly titled, “DIO”.

In an appropriate finale, the band close with a bonus track and tribute to their Australian brethren AC/DC covering “Rock ‘N’ Roll Damnation”, which includes a special guest appearance from vocalist Whitfield Crane of Ugly Kid Joe.

Following the recording of the album the members of Dead City Ruins immediately jumped back on the road for a thirteen country tour of the UK, Europe, and Scandinavia supporting American heavyweights Skid Row and Ugly Kid Joe to rave reviews!

Dead City Ruins has also shared festival stages with the likes of Mastodon, Diamond Head, Orange Goblin, and Hardcore Superstar.

ARBITRATOR Free Download ‘For That Which May Appease Lions’ Featuring Drummer Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork)

December 4th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

FREE DOWNLOAD – http://puregrainaudio.com/audio/arbitrator-for-that-which-may-appease-lions-exclusive-free-song-download

arbitrator_no_logo

ARBITRATOR is a project that began in late 2010 as the brainchild of Robert Kukla and officially debut in 2011 with the EP ‘The Consummate Ascendancy’ with former drummer Corey Chernesky. Now, determined to release a full-length to top “TCA“, Kukla on rhythm guitar, bass and vocals has wrote the band’s first album with a whole new arsenal of musicians that includes drummer Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, ex-Devin Townsend Project, ex-Aborted), Myles Malloy on lead guitar and Connor ORT Linning for programming. The planned 2015 release will be entitled ‘Indoctrination of Sacrilege’ and was produced by Sacha Laskow (ex-Divinity, Every Hour Kills), mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy) along with album artwork done by Colin Marks (Exodus, Scar Symmetry, Jeff Loomis).

The first track ‘For That Which May Appease Lions’ from the forthcoming 2015 album is now available for FREE download on PuregrainAudio.com here.

“‘For That Which May Appease Lions’ is quite possibly one of my favourite tracks off of the new album. Dark, ‘Resident Evil’ style passages compliment sections of blistering blast beats performed by the skins-king himself, Dirk Verbeuren. It is a track that is as dynamic as it is brutal, and certainly not for those that shy away from the radical nature of the progressive genre.” comments Kukla.

In addition, Toontrack.com has released on their youtube channel a drum playthrough video featuring drummer Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, ex-Devin Townsend Project, ex-Aborted) performing ‘For That Which May Appease Lions’.

Video – Arbitrator – Dirk Verbeuren EZdrummer 2 playthrough – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfJMUOLlR90

OPERATION: MINDCRIME Sign Worldwide Deal With Frontiers

December 4th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

OPERATION: MINDCRIME — featuring singer Geoff Tate, bassist Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake), drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), guitarist Kelly Gray (Queensryche) and keyboardist Randy Gane (Myth) — has signed a worldwide record deal with Frontiers Music Srl for their forthcoming trilogy project.

“All of us in Operation: Mindcrime are looking forward to the new frontier with our new label, Frontiers Music Srl,” states Tate regarding the signing. “They’re giving us the creative freedom necessary to do the trilogy project I’ve envisioned for the past few years. It’s going to be great fun for all of us involved and we hope our fans will enjoy listening to it as much as we plan to enjoy creating and recording it.”

Ecstatic to have the band on his label, Frontiers Music Srl President Serafino Perugino comments, “As a long time fan of Geoff Tate and Operation: Mindcrime (the album), I am truly honored that he decided to sign with my label to give a home to his forthcoming trilogy. We look forward to release Operation: Mindcrime’s new music to the world!”

Tate, who has always enjoyed telling stories though his music, considers the creation of the forthcoming trilogy one of his biggest and most ambitious works to date.

“I tried to reduce the story and eventually got it down to 37 ideas that needed representing to complete the story,” comments Geoff. “I knew that one record wouldn’t cover it and that it would have to be a trilogy.”

OPERATION: MINDCRIME, named after Queensryche’s epic concept album from 1988, recently entered the studio to begin recording the album that is expected to be released in the late Spring / early Summer of 2015.

Stay tuned for further details of the project in the months ahead.

Scion Audio Visual Post Extended Video Interview With Tom Araya Of SLAYER

December 4th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

Tom Araya of Slayer gave an extended interview for the Scion AV All Purpose Show. Host Prince Paul spoke with the soft-spoken bassist and vocalist of the band that Araya says started out wanting to be “the heaviest and the fastest” around.

For over 30 years Slayer has been attracting passionate fans, and he begins his talk with Paul discussing his thoughts on the phenomenon of Slayer tattoos. Araya continues on, describing the group’s humble beginnings self-funding the sessions to record their music, to their years of collaboration with producer Rick Rubin, to their current state where they can record a new album when they feel like it. But despite the changes in their circumstances, when Slayer plays live, the goal remains to blow every other band off the stage—as they’re still doing on their current Scion-sponsored tour of North America.

Look out for more in-depth interviews from the latest episode of the Scion AV All Purpose Show this week. Also below check out the Scion x Slayer Driven video where Tom Araya and Kerry King take you to the ESP Guitar facility, a snake warehouse and studio tour.

Another ten acts confirmed for the Sweden Rock Festival!

December 3rd, 2014
by EvilG

unnamed-35.jpgPreviously, 38 acts have been announced for next year’s Sweden Rock Festival. Here is another ten:

Legendary guitarist Slash, whose latest album “World on fire” went to #1 in the Swedish charts a few weeks ago, will perform at Sweden Rock for the first time next summer. And naturally, he is bringing vocalist extraordinaire Myles Kennedy (also in Alter Bridge) and his cohorts in The Conspirators. Expect the best Slash songs along with classics by both Guns n’ Roses and Velvet Revolver in the setlist!

Dokken was one of the big bands of the 80s, with an influential blend of classic hard rock and melodies á la what some refer to as hair metal. The band has not played Sweden Rock since 2001, so it’s about time they return. Notably, singer Don Dokken, drummer Mick Brown and demon guitarist Jon Levin are joined by the celebrated singer Mark Boals, known for his singing with Yngwie Malmsteen and Royal Hunt among others… as the bands bassist!

Hardcore Superstar from Gothenburg have been one of Sweden’s most popular hard rock bands for years. Their latest Sweden Rock appearance was marred by heavy rain and although most of their audience persisted, they are well worth a new shot.

In 1998, a new band featuring members from Katatonia, Opeth and Edge Of Sanity was formed in Stockholm. They took the name Bloodbath and quickly became connoiseurs’ faves, and all but mythical since they hardly ever performed live. Earlier this year, their fourth album “Grand Morbid Funeral”, featuring new vocalist Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost) was released and their Sweden Rock appearance will be their only in Sweden this summer.

Pat Travers is a Canadian hard rock legend. He made his debut in 1976 and instantly established his style: fundamentally blues based hard rock spiced with unorthodox rhythms and unabashed pop melodies. On his later works, blues is the predominant influence, with the characteristic Travers guitar sound fully noticeable.

Swiss outfit Eluveitie is one of the most successful folk metal bands today. Their sound mixes melodic death metal (Gothenburg style) with Celtic folk music, featuring traditional instruments like bagpipe, violin and miscellaneous flutes and pipes. In 2015 they make their SRF debut, and their only Swedish performance next summer.

Refuge is in fact the reunited 1988-1994 line-up of German heavy/power metal icons Rage: Peavy Wagner (vocals/bas), Manni Schmidt (guitar, ex-Grave Digger) and Chris Eftimiadis (drums). The trio reunites to perform songs exclusively from what some consider the best period in the history of Rage, and albums like “Perfect man”, “Secrets in a weird world”, “Trapped” and “Missing link”. The name Refuge is used since the current version of Rage, front man Peavy’s day job, remains active.

Thin Lizzy leader Phil Lynott (RIP) called keyboardist Darren Wharton the band’s most talented member ever. Since 1985, the same Darren Wharton fronts Dare – originally a melodic hard rock band which has gradually turned towards a more ethereal and Celtic sound. Next spring will see the release of the eighth Dare studio album, shortly before them returning to Sweden Rock.

Dan Hylander earned his place in Swedish rock history as the leader of Raj Montana band. When the group was disbanded in 1984, Dan Hylander continued as a solo artist and producer for artists like Totta Näslund and Tomas Ledin. In 2011 he made a comeback album and next year he makes his Sweden Rock debut – a suitably rocking setlist has been promised.

 

Yesterday we also announced Swedish band Egonaut for the Nemis Stage!

 

Longer biographies on all the bands, other information and tickets can be found at www.swedenrock.com.

 

The Sweden Rock Festival is held in Sölvesborg on June 3rd-6th 2015. Tickets are available.

SWEET & LYNCH Premiere New Video For “The Wish”

December 3rd, 2014
by Celtic Bob

10710686_553470374799414_463777072746697402_n

Sweet & Lynch are releasing the first official video from their upcoming debut album, Only To Rise. The video is for the album opener “The Wish” and premiered on Ultimate Classic Rock (http://ultimateclassicrock.com/sweet-lynch-the-wish/). The video shows Michael Sweet and George Lynch performing the song together amongst imagery that corresponds with the song’s lyrics. The video was shot in Los Angeles and was directed by Devin DeHaven, known for his work with Rick Ross, Whitesnake, Kiss and R. Kelly to name a few. The video can be seen here: http://youtu.be/jmmolV-B7xE.

“After almost a year of talking about the Sweet & Lynch album we’re extremely proud to premiere the first music video, ‘The Wish,’ states Michael Sweet. “The song takes you back to a time when guitar heroes ruled the airwaves and melodies soared. The thought was to bring back the late 70’s/early 80’s with a modern twist and remind people of one of the best eras in hard rock/metal.”

Only To Rise is scheduled for release in the United States on January 27th, 2015 via Froniters Music SRL. Backing up Sweet & Lynch on this new musical adventure is bassist James Lomenzo and drummer Brian Tichy. Sweet & Lynch recently launched a pre-order for the new album via PledgeMusic. The pre-order features various bundle packages for fans and is live at: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/sweetlynch. The album is also available via Amazon at: http://geni.us/SweetLynchAMZ.

“George and I are proud of how this album turned out and we’re counting the days for the release,” adds Sweet. “We’re equally as proud of the fan base out there. So many people have been there through thick and thin and this album is a testimony to the perseverance of working hard and working even harder.  George, Brian, James and myself gave 110% to every note played and sung and we hope that it shows.”

From the opening notes of “The Wish” to the drum solo finish on the album-closer “Only To Rise,” it is evident that this musical partnership between Michael Sweet’s unmistakable voice and George Lynch’s signature guitar tone has yielded incredible results. Songs “Dying Rose,” “Me Without You” and “Strength In Numbers” showcase the diversity that permeates throughout the entire album. Sweet & Lynch released a lyric video for the 9/11 inspired track “September” which can be seen here: http://youtu.be/i5G5uzrYWXw. An EPK featuring Michael and George discussing this new project can be seen here: http://youtu.be/BPYIoe0fTqI. Only To Rise was produced by Michael Sweet who also produced the last Stryper album, No More Hell To Pay, which received massive fan praise and critical acclaim alike.

Plans are currently being worked out for Sweet & Lynch to play a few live shows in the Spring of next year, making this different than any other supergroups that record together but never play live. More information will be announced in the near future. If the past records of these four musicians are any indication, no fan will want to miss these shows.
