September 25th, 2013
by EvilG

Pioneer Vedic Metal band, RUDRA, from Singapore will unleash their latest album, RTA, through SONIC BLAST MEDIA on 14 Oct 2013.

A legend in the Asian Metal scene, Rudra evolved from a humble Death Metal band in 1992 to the ‘founders’ of a new metal genre called Vedic Metal. With a history of over 02 (two) decades and a catalogue of 06 (six) full-length albums of critical acclaim; the music of RUDRA can best be characterized as a bridge between the east and the west: incorporating Indian traditional music, Sanskrit chants and mantras into Death/Black Metal. This aspect has won them much attention from the rest of the world and also gave birth to a new metal genre: Vedic Metal.

GWAR Endorses Super Bowl Petition, Announces Run Of Holiday Dates

September 25th, 2013
by EvilG

“Madness at the Core of Time” Tour Kicks off October 2nd

After a week and over 35,000 signatures, Antarctic overlords GWAR finally have officially reacted to the petition started by Jeff Cantrell of Morehead, Kentucky on Change.org to have GWAR play the Super Bowl Halftime Show.  The petition can be signed at Change.org/GWARBOWL.

“It has long been the joy of GWAR to submit the human race to any number of hideous tortures, and I can’t think of anything more horrible than you having to watch acts like The Black-Eyed Peas and Bruno Mars perform. So the temptation to ignore this is great! But then you start thinking about all of the people that who have never experienced GWAR before, and will be forced to do so if we do get the gig, well, at that point my colossal mega-ego kicks in and I am all over it.”

After a long and wet fart, Oderus continued…”I really don’t think we should be limited to playing the halftime show…I am offering GWAR as an actual team that could complete in the NFL. Think of the titanic struggle involved as the NFL submits their best players, hell, we could play against all the teams at once and still emerge victorious. For too long has the NFL ignored the obvious fact that the players should be naked, blind-folded and armed with battle axes, that land mines should litter the field and whalers should hurl harpoons randomly from the stands. GWAR is throwing our entire cosmic weight (and we are fairly hefty) behind this petition, and command all of our followers, their families, and indeed anybody who has ever existed to sign this fucking thing, and in fact for those who have already signed it to create multiple fake email addresses and sign it again!” Read the rest of this entry »

IVORY KNIGHT ANNOUNCES REUNION

September 25th, 2013
by EvilG
Ivory Knight

Ivory Knight

Canadian classic metal band Ivory Knight is pleased to announce their reunion after an 8-year split. The band is currently in rehearsals and intends to return to the live stage first before deciding on whether or not to return to writing and recording.

Ivory Knight released its last CD, titled Unconscience, in 2005. The album was mixed and mastered by legendary guitarist Jeff Waters of the great Canadian metal act Annihilator. The album was very well received by fans and critics alike, and was a worthy successor to the critically-acclaimed 2001 album ‘Up From The Ashes’. The band’s first recording was its 1988 demo called “Voices In Your Nightmare” which received excellent reviews from all over the world, despite having been recorded in the bands rehearsal space on a lowly 4-track tape machine.

Respected Metal magazine Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles, Issue #92, lists Ivory Knight among the great Canadian Metal acts alongside bands like Rush, Annihilator, Exciter, and others. The Temple of Metal in Greece called the band “Canada’s best kept secret”! U.S.-based Indie-Music.com says this band is “good enough to have a mainstream appeal similar to that of Priest, Sabbath, Megadeth, or Metallica”!

CARCASS Crack the Billboard Top 100 Chart

CARCASS: North American Tour Dates Announced

CARCASS: North American Tour Dates Announced

Disinterred British extreme metal legends CARCASS scanned 8,422 copies of Surgical Steel in its first week of sales in the United States according to Nielson Soundscan. The record came in at #41 on the US Billboard Top 200 Chart, making it their highest first week sales ever and their highest charting release to date! In contrast, their last full-length release 1996’s Swansong sold just under 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release.

Commented the band:
“Wow! Well we had every faith in the fact that we’ve recorded a very strong album and we had every faith in our label Nuclear Blast that they would work their asses off – but this is AMAZING news!!! This even more impressive when you consider that our album leaked a month before

the release date AND that we didn’t target the charts in the Summer when it was ‘soft’ and easier to chart high. CARCASS was up against some strong mainstream releases this past week! Thanks to all the listeners who bought the album- it goes to prove to all the cynics out there wrong – people DO still buy albums -especially Metalheads! If you bought the album you should be proud of yourselves! Again thanks from us!”

A Message from Wendy Dio: Help Dogs Find Homes by Donating to The Brittany Foundation

September 24th, 2013
by EvilG

DioWendyA message from Wendy Dio regarding she and Ronnie James Dio’s favorite charity, The Brittany Foundation:

 

Dear Friends,

 

As you all know, Ronnie and I have always been animal lovers and our favorite charity is The Brittany Foundation, as 100% of the monies raised goes to feed and house the dogs. Some of you may remember that three years ago, I spent a Day in Their Paws in a cage with two adorable dogs, trying to raise money and get them adopted. This was one of the last public appearances Ronnie made before his untimely passing.

 

This year I am going in the cage again with Timka and Tramp to raise money for The Brittany Foundation. I stay in the cage for 24 hours or until I have raised the money for freedom. It costs a dollar a minute for my freedom. I am asking for your help.

 

Please go here and scroll down to my picture with Timka and Tramp, and click the button to donate. We would love to see any of you that would like to join us.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to you all, and as Ronnie would say, “You Rock!”

 

- Wendy Dio

with Ophiuchus and Kaustik

Live at September 6th 2013
The Whisky A Go Go, West Hollywood CA USA

Live Review and Pics by Metalette

It’s always great to be at the Whisky a Go Go on a Friday night. While standing in line to get in, or grabbing a pre-show slice of pie from Frankie and Johnnie’s pizza up the block, you really get to experience all the weirdness that the Sunset Strip has to offer. There’s a yuppie-or-something club nearby (do people still say “yuppie”? I do…), an Irish pub which I have yet to check out, the Hustler store across the street, and average LA joes taking their Lamborghinis for a casual cruise back and forth on Sunset a few times, or walking their large, exotic dogs haughtily down the Strip. And lest we forget the constant stream of tourist buses slowing down to take pictures of the Whisky, as well as flash devil-horns (as if they even know what they’re doing) at the string of less-than-impressed metal fans who are just waiting to pick up their tickets at will-call.
