Dethklok – Metalocalypse: the Doomstar Requiem a Klok Opera” on October 27

October 2nd, 2013
by EvilG

Adult Swim will air a one-hour special called “Metalocalypse: the Doomstar Requiem a Klok Opera” on October 27, with a brand new special album to follow. Voice actors reportedly include Jack Black, “Star Wars” star Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, and Cannibal Corpse’s George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher.

Unlike usual episodes of the animated metal fantasy, it will feature a 50-piece orchestra alongside Dethklok for something really special. Check out the trailer above for a sample of the orchestral-inspired episode.

“This is not like anything we’ve ever done,” says creator Brendon Small. “This is a full blown musical- metal combined with symphonic passages, classic musical theatre, high stakes drama, emotional moments, and yes totally ridiculous comedy. I drew from all of my influences to make this the most unique project I could dream of. This is easily the best thing we’ve ever done with the show and the music. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

OBSESSION & Graven Image @ La Respuesta, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Obsession & Graven Image

@ La Respuesta, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Produced by K&K Entertainment

Review by Titus Isaac

Obsession @ La Respuesta, Puerto Rico

Obsession @ La Respuesta, Puerto Rico

Although double bill concerts are not uncommon in Puerto Rico, it is not often that two bands hailing from the same place get a chance to play on the island: on August  17 Puerto Rico got a taste of the Connecticut Heavy Metal scene, via the Obsession/ Graven Image concert held at La Respuesta, Santurce.

Interestingly enough, one band, Obsession, has been around for thirty-plus years, while Graven Image are relatively newcomers on the scene, so the audience got a chance to get a taste of both the old school and new school of Connecticut Metal. It was also one of those rare instances where all of the bands, including the opening local bands, more or less play variations of the same style of music: classic Heavy Metal. The opening bands were Iternia and Aura Azul, who have also been around for some time as well.

HORNET ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE AND RELEASE SHOW AT LONDON’S INTREPID FOX!

September 30th, 2013
by EvilG

Storm The Gates ArtworkAfter a year away from The Intrepid Fox, where Hornet played their first London show, the band finally returns to headline as a special one-off show for their fans on Friday 25th October, to release their new single, ‘Storm The Gates’.

Hornet stormed into the rock and metal scene in early 2012 with a whole new style, showing us a mix of punk, metal and rock that works perfectly together. Playing a monthly residency at The Intrepid Fox quickly made a big impact and by the end of the year Hornet sold out shows at The Borderline, The Barfly and Upstairs at The Garage.

The band then released their debut album ‘Skies Are Falling’ in July after a successful Pledge Music project and unveiled a brand new stage show last month at The O2 Academy in Islington which includes a custom stage, over the top lighting,rising drums, smoke, dry ice, wild stage props, confetti cannons and obscene hand puppetry, all of which are a must see.

‘The Waking Up’, a new song by modern thrashers Sawthis, is now available for streaming on Youtube:

With 2 albums under their belt (‘Fusion’, 2006, and ‘Egod’, 2010) which were very well received by fans and critics alike, the band have recently announced a new record deal with Bakerteam Records and a new album, ‘Youniverse’, which will hit the stores September 30th, 2013. ‘Youniverse’ is a conceptual work focused on the theme of multiple personality disorder and features a very special guest appearance by Rob Cavestany from Death Angel.

SAXON – Unplugged and Strung Up on November 18th, 2013

SAXON - Unplugged And Strung Up

SAXON – Unplugged And Strung Up

The British heavy metal legends produce a series of alternative takes on classic favorites to herald a worthy new entry to the Saxonian Institute of Metal.

There is always feral beauty in a raging beast…and with Unplugged and Strung Up, Saxon’s selection of unique, fresh and adventurous interpretations of material previously heard only with raw heavy metal thunder, the point is triumphantly underscored.

Unplugged and Strung Up reveals layers and pieces previously dormant in many of the 14 classic Saxon songs chosen for this makeover, thanks to some ear-catching new arrangements and mixes. Recorded, mixed and mastered with Andy Sneap in Derbyshire, UK earlier this year, Biff and co re-evaluated, re-worked and re-energized the towering likes of “The Eagle Has Landed” and “Crusader” by introducing orchestral dynamics to offer added dimension. “Frozen Rainbow” from the band’s 1979 debut, gets a stunning acoustic reprisal which transports it into a power ballad to be proud of, whilst “Red Star Falling” soars and sweeps the emotions with it’s orchestrally-arranged dovetail.

As if this reinvention wasn’t enough, Saxon superfans and collectors can purchase a digipack version of the release which will include 2002′s storming set of full-volume, pedal-to-the-metal re-recorded hits Heavy Metal Thunder. Featuring staple Saxon stormers such as “Motorcycle Man”, “Strong Arm of the Law” and “Dallas 1pm” it is a quintessential part of any collection.

September 26th, 2013
by EvilG

From the harrowing doom of their 1990 debut Lost Paradise, to 1991′s genre-defining Gothic, to 1995′s break-out masterpiece Draconian Times, to 1997′s electronically-tinged One Second, to 2007′s return to a heavier form In Requiem, to last year’s opus Tragic Idol, PARADISE LOST has continued to evolve since their inception in 1988, inspiring countless artists throughout the years. To celebrate their influence on the scene, a special compilation will be released this fall to commemorate the band’s 25th anniversary landmark.

Entitled Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities), this album will be released on October 21st in Europe (digitally on November 5th in North America) and features artwork by Parisian designer Valnoir (www.metastazis.com), who has worked with artists such as ORPHANED LAND, MORBID ANGEL, WATAIN, and more than 150 others. All tracks found on the compilation are previously released rarities– except the new track “Loneliness Remains,” and newly recorded “Gothic 2013″ and “Our Saviour 2013.” These three tracks will also appear on a mint green 10″ (USA exclusive color; limited to 300 copies) that includes a CD booklet and CD insert.
