About VENOM INC:
In 2015, a chance encounter brought an offer to Tony Dolan (vocals, bass) to reform the line-up of Venom that had recorded the classic Prime Evil album and solid follow-up albums. These classics kept the band very much alive during the onslaught of Grunge and Brit Pop that destroyed all but the most-hardy in the early 90’s. Dolan seized the opportunity to continue the Venom legacy that had begun when current bandmates Jeff Dunn (aka Mantas on guitar), along with Tony Bray (Abaddon, drums), formed the original band in 1979 and brought the world extreme metal in the form of the Welcome To Hell and Black Metal albums. Topped off in the beginning by the voice of Clive “Jesus Christ” Archer (and later by Cronos and “The Demolition Man” Tony Dolan), Venom was – and still is – a force of nature.

VENOM INC upholds the true intention of Venom that began in 1979, and vows to rekindle the original spirit that was lost over the years. For every single Legionnaire from Venom’s Legions and new fans alike, VENOM INC will continue to grow and perform the classics with heart, soul and true meaning.

Frontiers Music Srl To Release Third Album From World Trade, “Unify”, on August 4th!

June 1st, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Composed of some of L.A.’s most recognized studio and songwriting talents, Billy Sherwood, Guy Allison, and Bruce Gowdy, World Trade will release their third album, “Unify” on August 4, 2017 via Frontiers Music Srl.

Lead vocalist and main songwriter, Billy Sherwood has been a fixture of the L.A. studio and recording scene since the mid-80’s. Billy’s talents range from producing a Grammy nominated album for Paul Rodgers to being the current bass player of YES, handpicked by Chris Squire to replace him before his untimely death. He also recently joined up with Asia as a replacement for John Wetton after his passing for the band’s current US tour with Journey.

“World Trade was always a very special band, with a unique sound. It’s amazing all these years later to be able to make another record and have it feel just as special as the first,” says Sherwood.

Guy Allison and Bruce Gowdy, a pair of musicians also known for being behind the awesome melodic rock band Unruly Child, and drummer Mark T. Williams (son of famed composer John Williams and brother of Toto singer Joseph) round out the line-up.

“World Trade was always one of my favorite bands that I had the pleasure to be involved in. We are a real bunch of creative souls. Our debut record had such a great vibe and our new CD ‘Unity’ does as well!  To our fans, we hope we can come out and play for you soon,” says Bruce Gowdy.

“If I had heard World Trade back when I was an impressionable young man (one who fell in love with the band U.K. on the very first listen), they would have made a lifelong impression on me. I’m very proud to have been a part of that musical journey with some of my very best friends,” adds Guy Alliison.

No doubt that World Trade is a world-class band in every sense. “Unify” is a mature sounding recording reflective of the years of experience within the band. With great songwriting, excellent vocals, and immense production values, this album will appeal to fans of Toto ‘s most recent releases and 90125/Big Generator-era Yes, as well as fans of other progressive rock bands who value musicianship and songwriting craft.

“Unify” Track Listing:
1.The New Norm
2. Where We’re Going
3. Pandora’s Box
4. On Target On Time
5. Gone All The Way
6. Unify
7. For The Fallen
8. Lifeforce
9. Same Old Song
10. Again

WORLD TRADE Line Up
Billy Sherwood – bass and lead vocals
Bruce Gowdy – guitars
Guy Allison – keyboards
Mark T. Williams – drums

PROJECTED “Ignite My Insanity” EPK Released

June 1st, 2017
by Celtic Bob

 

It might have taken five years, but Projected return with their sophomore double-length release, Ignite My Insanity on July 21st via Rat Pak Records. The two-disc collection is currently available for pre-order in various configurations at http://www.ratpakrecords.com/Projected. Ignite My Insanity is the long awaited follow-up to the 2012 self-released debut album, Human from the band comprised of Sevendust guitarist John Connolly, Alter Bridge/Creed drummer Scott Phillips, Sevendust bassist Vinnie Hornsby and Tremonti guitarist Eric “E-ROCK” Friedman.

Ignite My Insanity features 21 all new tracks from Projected and continues to build upon the sound the band established with their debut. It is an album designed to resonate with fans from the member’s original projects and guaranteed to garner new fans along the way. From the melodic piano interlude of the opener “Strike” to the raucous ending of closer “Battlestations,” the new album takes the listener on a journey inside the minds of the band. Songs like “Six Feet Below,” “Gomorrah,” “Inhuman” and “Upside Down” are infectious rockers. The first single “Reload” is a frenetic composition that showcases the musicianship of these accomplished performers. Alter Bridge/Tremonti songwriter Mark Tremonti co-wrote “Rectify” and “Call Me The Devil” and Sevendust’s Morgan Rose co-wrote “Concede” with the band. A teaser video for the release can be seen at: https://youtu.be/di_ceQJSoVU.

On the subject of Projected’s new record, John Connolly comments, “There are four very strong personalities in this band. Everyone has been in the business doing various things, from Alter Bridge to Creed to Sevendust to Tremonti and it took all those elements and sounds to make this album what it is!”

Scott Phillips adds, “We’re all part of other bands that we’ve put our heart and soul and life into and this was just a chance to extend that into somewhat of a different direction.”

Guitarist Eric “E-Rock” Friedman comments, “When I think Projected, the first words that come to my mind is a very raw and honest band.  Things aren’t overthought. It’s very organic.”

Says bassist Vinnie Hornsby, “We’ve been playing so long together, you know it’s kinda’ like a marriage to a certain degree, it really warms my heart to be able to play with my friends and these great musicians.”

The track listing for Ignite My Insanity is:

Disc 1                                                                         Disc 2
1)     Strike                                                                   1)    Fire
2)     Reload                                                                 2)    Ignite
3)     Six Feet Below                                                    3)    Call Me The Devil
4)     Vain                                                                     4)    Concede
5)     Rectify                                                                 5)    Inhuman
6)     Faith                                                                    6)    Better
7)     Gomorrah                                                            7)    Hate You Back
8)     Heaven Above                                                     8)    Upside Down
9)     10 Years Gone                                                     9)    Seconds
10)   Only                                                                   10)  Inside The Sun
11)  Battlestations

Projected formed in 2012 when longtime friends John Connolly (Sevendust), Vinnie Horsnby (Sevendust), Scott Phillips (Alter Bridge/Creed) and Eric “E-Rock” Friedman (Tremonti) decided to create some music together. While all members are successful in their mainstay bands, Projected afforded the members a chance to explore some different ideas musically. In September 2012, the band self-released their debut album Human and is currently looking for breaks in their respective schedules to bring the music to their fans in a live setting.

Brutal Assault : LINEUP CHANGES! DispersE and Collision

May 30th, 2017
by Arto Lehtinen

Sadly we have to announce that two bands had to withdraw from our lineup this year. Prog death metal Born of Osiris are unable to perform at the festival since they postponed their euro tour to Fall 2017. Australian thrashing grindcore act King Parrot also cancelled their show because they are late with recording of their new album. On the other hand we are more than happy to welcome another two great bands – promising Polish DispersE, which inject fresh momentum into the progressive genre, and extreme grindcore/hardcore destruction Collision from the Netherlands.

May 26th, 2017
by EvilG

Edguy – Monuments

In February 1992, a bunch of German kids set out from the middle of nowhere and founded a band that would conquer the hearts of a whole new generation of fans around the globe!

Today, 25 years later, founding members Tobias Sammet (AVANTASIA) and the two guitarists Jens Ludwig and Dirk Sauer, as well as Tobias “Eggi” Exxel (bass) and Felix Bohnke (drums), who joined the band 20 years ago, can look back at their hugely successful career to shows in more than 40 countries, countless tours in Asia, Australia and America, ten studio albums and top 10 chart entries from all over the world.

To celebrate such an exceptional career with their fans, EDGUY will get back on the road. And while the live program will only contain the best material of their entire career, the new release will not be just a ‘Greatest Hits’ album one would expect to accompany such a tour: The 2-CD/DVD-package Monuments (release: July 14th) will include brand new material, their best tracks of the last 25 years, and old rarities that have never been published before! In addition, the DVD includes an entire show from their Hellfire Club tour in 2004 as well as the complete collection of their video clips.

RAVAGE UNLEASH “RETURN OF THE SPECTRAL RIDER” – NEW RECORDING AVAILABLE NOW

May 26th, 2017
by EvilG
Ravage - "Return Of The Spectral Rider"

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
