Ravage – “Return Of The Spectral Rider”

Ravage, the heavy metal band from Boston, MA USA today released the band’s new full-length recording “Return Of The Spectral Rider”. The album is available on CD, limited edition vinyl, and digital download format. The release is a complete re-recording of the band’s “Spectral Rider” album which was given a limited release in Europe through Germany’s Karthago Records in 2005. The new version features a crisp new production quality, a new track-listing, guest appearances and all-new artwork by TIM JACOBUS (known for painting the covers of the R.L. STINE’S GOOSEBUMPS and FEAR STREET series of horror novels).

Singer Al Ravage explained the band’s decision to re-record their debut full-length. “Ever since the original version of ‘Spectral Rider’ was released, we hoped to revisit it. There were numerous issues with the production and we didn’t have access to the original tracks so there was no possibility of a remix. The track listing got screwed up before production… the artwork was not well-received… it didn’t receive a lot of promotion… there were just a lot of problems with that release. But at the same time, it featured some of our favorite songs we’ve written and we’ve continued to feature a lot of them in our live set. We felt that adequate time had passed because the original version has been out of print for years and it was actually recorded fourteen years ago. So with our new studio we finally had the opportunity to record the songs properly. We had a blast revisiting this material and it’s great to be able to present these songs to a new generation of heavy metal fans.”

Ravage’s last album “The End Of Tomorrow” was released by Metal Blade Records in 2009. “Return Of The Spectral Rider” will be the first full-length to appear on the band’s new imprint Society For World Wide Ravage Recordings and will be distributed by CDBaby.com

Promotion for the band will be provided by PR firm Online Metal Promo

A lyric video for the song “Turn The Screw” is available on Youtube at this location

Interview with Matt Medeiros,
Guitarist and Vocalist of Ruinous

May 24, 2017

Interview by InfamousButcher

Something brutal this way comes! Hailing from New Jersey, Ruinous is a new death metal band with an old school death / doom sound. Think elements of Incantation mixed with some Demilich and old Carcass and you get the idea! Last year the released their crushing debut album GRAVES OF CEASELESS DEATH on Dark Descent Records and tonight the band is playing their first gig at the Maryland Deathfest Pre-Party in Baltimore. I was able to contact guitarist/ vocalist Matt Medeiros via email and ask him some questions about the band and the album.

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY ANNOUNCE STUDIO TEASERS ‘THE CONSPIRACY DIARIES’!

May 25th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

The Cavalera brothers are back! Max and Iggor Cavalera, who created some of the most influential metal records in music history with SEPULTURA and inspiring the heavy and extreme music scene over decades, are currently hard at work in the studio in Phoenix, Arizona, to record the fourth album of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY!

Set to be released in the Fall of 2017 on Napalm Records, Max and Iggor have now left a message to their fans and the worldwide metal community with a first teaser and greetings from the studio.

Produced by longtime friend Arthur Rizk, the recordings of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY’s upcoming album will be documented by Horns Up Rocks, titled ‘The Conspiracy Diaries’. These exciting studio episodes will be released over the next months and will share an in-depth view behind the scene’s of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY’s work in the studio.

The brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera formed the legendarily trailblazing heavy metal band SEPULTURA as teenagers together in 1984. Across six studio albums the Brazilian punishers perfected the art of darkness and extreme music with thrash classics such as Beneath the Remains Ariseand Chaos AD, while exploring the underbelly of third world political issues and broadening the genre’s horizons with an exploration of indigenous culture, culminating with the landmark Roots album in 1996. A decade after Max left SEPULTURA and meanwhile released seven successfull records with SOULFLY, the two brothers got back together in 2006 to form CAVALERA CONSPIRACY: A bold testament to the talent and power these two possess together. An invigorating mixture of speed and aggression, finest thrash power and the fiercest riffage.

Get ready for one of the most heaviest and hotly anticipated metal records of 2017, as the CAVALERA CONSPIRACY will strike back this Fall!

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY are:
Max Cavalera – Vocals, Guitar
Iggor Cavalera – Drums, Percussion
Marc Rizzo – Lead Guitar
Johny Chow – Bass

KRYPTONITE Release A Taste Of Album Via EPK

May 25th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce an amazing new melodic rock combo from Sweden: KRYPTONITE

For your first taste of music and to hear more about the band from the guys themselves, head on over to their freshly launched Facebook page and watch the behind-the-scenes video they’ve shared there: fb.me/KryptoniteSweden

Sometimes musicians are put together who only know each other from afar via their respective recordings, but something clicks and triggers a magical moment. That’s exactly what happened when Jakob Samuel from The Poodles met up with producer Alessandro Del Vecchio on the heels of a concept created by Frontiers President Serafino Perugino. Together, they set off to work on a new band that could offer lyrical concepts that are deep and intelligent with music that operates within the genres they excel in. And most importantly, has a great energy and impact.

Together with executive producer Serafino Perugino, they handpicked each musician to be part of their vision for a strong lineup of young and hungry Swedish musicians that would be ready to go out there and kick some ass. Pontus Egberg, formerly of The Poodles and now the bass player for King Diamond and Treat, was the first one to enter the picture, followed shortly thereafter by Robban Back of Mustasch (and ex-Eclipse). The choice of guitar player fell to the young and immensely gifted Mike Palace. Mike showed his huge talents as a writer and performer on his band Palace’s debut album and on several songs he has already written for the label.

The recording and writing sessions flowed freely and the songs came naturally. This band will truly set a standard for what fans perceive as melodic hard rock in today’s climate. It is classic, but modern at the same time, groovy and cool.

You will love what Jakob, Michael, Pontus, and Robban have cooked up for you as Kryptonite – Sweden! Stay tuned for upcoming announcements concerning the release date and the forthcoming first video/single!

Bill Kelliher of Mastodon – Emperor of Sand has Little Bit of Each Record in it!

May 24th, 2017
by Metal Rules

Interview by Robert Cavuoto

Mastodon

Mastodon

Mastodon has just released their eighth full-length album entitled, Emperor of Sand. The CD is framed around the tragic turn of events that transpired when Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher’s family members were diagnosed with cancer. The two talked everyday about their loved ones getting sick, dying, and how much time they have on this planet. Together they went into the studio to lay down some of the bands most adventurous and epic tracks to date, a cathartic release given to the fans. Mastodon is Troy Sanders on bass/vocals, Brent Hinds on guitar/vocals, Bill Kelliher on guitar Brann Dailor on drums/vocals.

I had the pleasure of speaking with guitarist Bill Kelliher to discuss the making of this CD and the band’s skyrocketing career.

It rattles, it cracks, it’s relentlessly straightforward, just as it should be in the genre – With the brand new single “Generation Y”, the Swiss demolition squad Final Cut deliver a true Thrash Metal hammer.

Before hitting the 2-minute-mark, the quintet strikes out for the mosh part: sawing riffs, whipping drums, and then? A wild harmonica solo! With this comes the birth of “Violent Blues Thrash”, a liaison between bluesy surprises and classical aggressive Thrash.
