The Crinn Return With A New Track, Reveal Artwork for Forthcoming Album ‘Shadowbreather’

October 21st, 2014
by EvilG

Minnesota’s extreme metal experimentalists, THE CRINN, have returned with a face melting new track entitled Silent Betrayer!! Little has been heard from the band since the release of their debut full length album, Dreaming Saturn, via Nuclear Blast Records back in 2010. Aside from a few one off live performances and few and far between social media updates, THE CRINN have been excessively quiet over the last few years.

All that changes with the release of Silent Betrayer, which is taken from their forthcoming album Shadowbreather. Silent Betrayer is now streaming via THE CRINN‘s Bandcamp page, as well as their Official YouTube Channel. The artwork forShadowbreather has also been revealed and can be seen (attached).

CANNIBAL CORPSE addresses Russian tour issues

October 20th, 2014
by EvilG


CANNIBAL CORPSE recently completed their tour of Russia, a place they have played previously played many times with no issues. Unfortunately, as many Russian fans are already aware, this tour did not go as planned. CANNIBAL CORPSE has released a statement, which can be read below.

A message to our Russian fans:
As you all are certainly aware by now, our concerts in Ufa, Moscow, and St. Petersburg were cancelled. We were present in these cities and ready to perform each of these shows but were not permitted to. In Ufa the power was turned off shortly before the show (we were told because the venue was late on rent), and in Moscow and St. Petersburg we were told that we did not have the correct visas and that if we attempted to perform the concert would be stopped by police and we would be detained and deported (prior to the tour we had been told that we did have the correct visas and that all of our paperwork was in order).

Our show in Nizhny Novgorod also had problems. In that city we performed half of our set before being stopped by police. We were told the police needed to search the venue for drugs and that the show had to be terminated.

These are the reasons for the cancellations as far as we have been told.

On the brighter side, we had a fantastic time performing in Krasnodar, Samara, Chelyabinsk, and Yekaterinburg. We were able to play our full set in all four of those cities.

We came to Russia excited and prepared to play all of the scheduled concerts, and we apologize that we were not able to do so. It was beyond our control. We are extremely disappointed. We have played in Russia many times and we love our Russian fans. Hopefully someday the situation for us in Russia will be different and we will be able to return.

Eluveitie

with Tyr and Metsatoll

October 11, 2014

Review by Monika Deviat & JP Wood

Folk metal seems to be growing in popularity and in Calgary Alta., there is a strong following. The MacEwan Hall Ballroom was at approximately 80% of the 1000 person capacity for Eluveitie’s all ages gig on October 11, 2014. Joining the Swiss folk metal band on the tour were Estonia’s Mestatoll and Faroese heavy metal band Týr. Fans arrived to the university located venue early and the line-up spanned the building. After doors opened many rushed to the front of the stage, some to the beer gardens and others to the merch booths. The attendees ranged from kids only a few years old with their parents (and it looked there were a few unimpressed looking teenagers with their parents) to seasoned metal veterans. Overall the crowd was on the younger side and their youthful excitement made for a boisterous evening.

Metsatoll were the opening act and were given a generous forty-five minute set. Since their appearance at the Noctis Valkyries Metal festival in 2010, Mestatoll has gathered a sizeable following in Calgary. With three albums on a bigger label since their first appearance they also have a much higher profile.  Their music has a very authentic feel, especially being able to watch Lauri “Varulven” Õunapuu skillfully play many traditional instruments live. Quite a few of the songs played this evening were off the newest album, Karjajuht [Spinefarm Records, 2014] and the heavier material went over very well with the crowd.

Týr was playing in Calgary for the second time this year and in the same venue they joined Children of Bodom and Death Angel at in February. This line up was a better fit for the band, but it seemed they had garnered some enthusiastic fans over their last visits. Týr focused heavily on the last two albums and brought more metal influence to the folk themed night. Vocalist Heri Joensen took the time to introduce and explain a few of the tunes, like “By the Sword In My Hand”, about “the unfortunate introduction of Christianity to the Faroe Islands”. This particular song had the audience screaming the lyrics along with the band. “Hold the Heathen Hammer High” may have been the heaviest and faster version we’ve seen them do. Bassist Gunnar Thomsen was smiling and engaging the crowd throughout the entire set and Amon Djurhuus was throwing horns from behind the drum kit. Terji Skibenæs was quite the showman shredding on the guitar and trading solos with Joensen. It’s possible Týr almost stole the show that night.

Eluveitie hit the stage at 10:00 pm sharp. The stage was set up to allow as much room as possible to the eight member band and included some banners with risers for the musicians to stand on at the back of the stage. As always, people were having fun moshing and crowd surfing even though this may not have exactly fit the music. Overall the sound was good, but quite loud and frontman Chrigel Glanzmann’s vocals were a little overdriven at times. The instrumentation and mix of all the various instruments sounded great this evening. The song selection for the night had many picks from the newest album Origins [Nuclear Blast, 2014] and of course contained a good selection of older favorites.

Glanzmann included some storytelling, including a longer monologue of the backstory of Vianna the little girl who is the main character of the new album. Anna Murphy introduced “Call of the Mountains”, explaining the band had recorded in the song in many different languages, and polled the audience as to which language they wanted to hear the song sung in. Calgary gave a lack luster response to the suggestion of English, booed French and cheered very loudly for their choice of Swiss German. “Inis Mona” ended the night with more clapping, singing and dancing from the crowd.

Audio Fidelity To Release Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “The Christmas Attic” On 2-LP Set!

October 18th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

TSO ChristmasFRONT-Web

Christmas arrives early this year with the release of Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s  rock opera “The Christmas Attic” on 2-LP Set by Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity. Originally released in 1998, “The Christmas Attic” is the second installment of Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas Trilogy. The story begins On Christmas Eve,  when a young girl’s curiosity leads her to a night of mischief and magic when she decides to sneak up into the attic of her parents’ home while she should be asleep.  This album contains a mix of vocal and instrumental songs. The track “Christmas Canon,” one of the TSO’s most well-known songs, is a variation of Pachelbel’s famous Canon in D Major, with lyrics and new music added as well as Boughs of Holly and a soulful rendition of Music Box Blues.

“The Christmas Attic” is being made available on vinyl for the first time in a 2-LP set. The brilliantly remastered records are packaged in a seasonal gatefold jacket that includes a colorful 12-page booklet filled with the tale of The Christmas Attic as well as the lyrics to all the songs.

When founder and producer Paul O’Neill first conceived Trans-Siberian Orchestra, his goal was as straightforward as it was ambitious: “…create a progressive rock band that would push the boundaries further than any group before, following in the footsteps of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Pink Floyd, the Who…but take it way, way further.”

With more than 9 million albums sold TSO has inspired generations of fans to rediscover the multi-dimensional art form of the rock opera. They’ve become one of the world’s top acts and listed in Billboard magazine as one of the top touring artists of the past decade. Their $20 million-plus stage production has played to over 11 million people in 80+ cities across the globe. TSO will once again be touring during the 2014 and 2015 holiday season with “The Christmas Attic” show. Last year they welcomed-in the New Year in front of over one million German fans in a nationally televised show live from the Brandenberg Gate.

HUNTRESS To Support AMON AMARTH In Europe/UK Early 2015!

October 18th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

4tqJ6y

California’s HUNTRESS will be touring  North Amercia this fall with Arch Enemy and Kreator in support of their latest release, 2013’s Starbound Beast. The tour begins October 23rd in Baltimore, MD and runs through November 23rd in Cleveland, OH.

HUNTRESS will continue their rapid  pace, having just announced a full European tour with Amon Amarth as direct support! Vocalist Jill Janus on the upcoming tour :

“The Gods have spoken! HUNTRESS will spend a wintery month with the Vikings from Sweden; Amon Amarth! It’s a fantasy come true to tour with one of our favorite bands as direct support. Huntress will bring the fury to Europe and the UK once again! This is an exciting time for us, just launching into a North American tour with the mighty Arch Enemy and Kreator. Our attack has been relentless, we’re now recording our third album in Los Angeles with production duo Andrew Alekel (Foo Fighters, No Doubt, Queens of the Stone Age, Clutch) and Jim Rota (Sound City, Fireball Ministry, Kyng), slated for release in early 2015. Spread it, shred it, behead it! Hail Heavy Metal!”

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

Starbound Beast – the latest critically acclaimed album by HUNTRESS -is available worldwide on Napalm Records.

Watch the band’s video “Zenith”, which was nominated by Revolver Magazine for their “Best Film and Video” Golden Gods Award: http://youtu.be/c1OltqVcr1Q
