SPLIT HEAVEN Announce Departure Of Guitarist Pedro Zelbohr

March 13th, 2014
by EvilG

SPLIT HEAVEN checked in with the following:

“In these last few weeks Split Heaven and guitarist Pedro Zelbohr had to separate due to his personal reasons to carry out other goals in life. This was a big blow for us, but just that the flames of our heavy metal are becoming stronger and make us be more alive than ever.

Because of this, a new alignment has been formed and we want to announce and welcome our friend Pablo Ollervides as new bassist of the band, leaving the position of guitarist for Carlo “Taii” Hernández who acted as bassist since the beginning of Split Heaven. Tomas Roitman will continue destroying the battery, Armand “Hank” Ramos bleeding our ears with his guitar and Giancarlo Farjat riffs will never cease to gritaaaar!

So let us rock and shake our heads because: the heavy metal will never die!”

WAMI (White Appice Mendoza Iggy) reveal the first single from their forthcoming debut release

March 12th, 2014
by EvilG

WAMI, a new exciting project will see the light of day in May. The album entitled “Kill the King” will give a new meaning to hard’n’heavy music and today you can check the first single promoting this release. “Wild Woman (You Oughta Know)” is available on Metal Mind Productions’ official YouTube channel in THIS location.

You can also preview and purchase this track on iTunes HERE.

The names associated with the project are true legends on the hard rock scene: on the vocals – Doogie White (Rainbow, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen), on the drums – Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, DIO), on the bass – Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), who join forces with the 16-year-old Polish guitarist Iggy Gwadera, who made his debut 2 years ago as the guitarist of Anti Tank Nun.

The idea to record an album together was born after Thin Lizzy’s concert in Poland. The bassist Marco Mendoza, delighted with the young guitarist Iggy, who supported Thin Lizzy with his band Anti Tank Nun, suggested that they record some music together. This first idea, which was maturing for the next dozen-odd months, eventually evolved into the project involving legendary musicians, who are currently recording a brand new album together with Iggy. The drummer Vinny Appice, renowned for playing in some of the best heavy metal bands of worldwide fame, as also the bassist Marco Mendoza have already finished recording bass and drum tracks in Los Angeles. In late November 2013, Doogie White confronted his vocal talent with Iggy’s guitar technique during their recording sessions in Poland. Hard rock fans can well expect the results of these sessions to be truly outstanding!

MACHINE HEAD: Details for “Killers & Kings” 10″ Revealed

MACHINE HEAD: Details for "Killers & Kings" 10" Revealed

MACHINE HEAD: Details for “Killers & Kings” 10″ Revealed

With twenty plus years, seven critically acclaimed full-length releases and multiple world tours to their credit, few can deny that when it comes to metal, MACHINE HEAD is one of the kings of the genre!

This summer Nuclear Blast Entertainment will have the privilege of releasing MACHINE HEAD’s next full-length album, the band’s debut for the label. In anticipation and to celebrate Record Store (April 19, 2014), we’re excited to release a limited edition 10” featuring a demo version of a brand new track entitled “Killers & Kings”. Never heard or released before, MACHINE HEAD fans have been waiting for new music from the band for the last 3 years and “Killers & Kings” does not disappoint. Side B of the release will also feature MACHINE HEAD covering two tracks by the southern CA hardcore outfit, IGNITE.

“I remember growing up in the thrash scene and always wanting to hear the demo version of songs,” commented vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn. “You searched them out. Thankfully my buddy Jim was a big ‘tape trader,’ and through trading we had both METALLICA demos, EXODUS demos, bootlegs of songs sometimes ‘years’ before they came out. I knew how to play every note of Pleasure Of The Flesh by EXODUS, easily 2 years before the record was out! My friends and I would debate the merits of each, but we all agreed, It was so much cooler to hear it BEFORE the album is out! So we’re gonna do that for you. I can’t wait for you guys to hear this stuff.”

This limited edition 10” will also feature four alternate covers with two specific colors, each limited to 1,000 copies each. Read the rest of this entry »

MOTÖRHEAD’S MOTÖRBOAT FEATURING MEGADETH, MOTÖRHEAD, ANTHRAX, ZAKK WYLDE & MORE

Motörhead’s Motörboat

Motörhead’s Motörboat

‘The Loudest Boat In The World’ Sails from Miami to Key West and Cozumel

September 22-26 – Onboard Carnival Ecstasy

 

Megadeth, Motörhead, and Anthrax - three of the greatest heavy metal bands in the world – will perform at the first annual Motörhead’s Motörboat cruise onboard the Carnival Ecstasy from September 22-26, 2014. In addition to these three rock giants, “The Loudest Boat In The World” will also feature performances from Zakk Wylde, Jim Breuer, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, Wilson, and some big surprises…more bands to be announced soon.

 

Motörhead’s Motörboat will sail from Miami, visiting the ports of Key West, Florida and Cozumel just off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. While onboard, guests will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with band members and will see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship.

 

Tickets for Motörhead’s Motörboat go on sale Tuesday, March 18 at Noon ET. The event website–www.MotorheadCruise.com–will launch later this week with full details and cabin pricing.

 

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister proclaims, “This will be everything you’ve come to expect from a night out with us, except even louder, with more great bands and no way of escaping! If you thought waves could rock a boat, you’ve got another thing coming with this lovely little outing!”

 

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine says, “There never has and never will be another cruise like Motörboat cruise. Come on a thrashing voyage with Motörhead, Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde and all Lemmy‘s friends. This is the coolest way to ever see a metal concert.”

 

Scott Ian of Anthrax adds, “Anthrax, Motörhead and Megadeth at sea??? To quote Chief Brody [Jaws], ‘We’re going to need a bigger boat.’”

 

“It’s truly an honor to partner with one of the most iconic bands in rock music to deliver a one of a kind fan experience for ‘Motorheadbangers’ from around the globe,” says event producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment.

TIMO TOLKKI’S AVALON to release sophomore album “Angels of the Apocalypse” with an amazing cast of singers ! Out in May on Frontiers

TIMO TOLKKI’S AVALON to release sophomore album "Angels of the Apocalypse" with an amazing cast of singers ! Out in May on Frontiers

TIMO TOLKKI’S AVALON to release sophomore album “Angels of the Apocalypse” with an amazing cast of singers ! Out in May on Frontiers

Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of TIMO TOLKKI’S AVALON sophomore album, “Angels of the Apocalypse” on May 16th in Europe and May 20th in North America.

Following the release of the debut album “The Land of New Hope”, the “Metal Opera” was met with critical and fan acclaim, entering the national album charts in seven European countries, including a top 10 entry in Tolkki’s home country, Finland. In August 2013, Tolkki flew to Greece to seek the right inspiration for the follow-up album and upon his return he managed to develop a sound that is even more grandiose and symphonic and yet heavier and darker in direction as compared to the debut album. “In August 2012 I planned to release a Metal Opera that had to be a trilogy. I am following a specific storyboard in a musical format and this time the musical direction is heavier and darker than the previous Avalon” says Tolkki. ”This was deliberate since the Apocalyptic scenes described in the lyrics demanded that”.

As for the players on the album, Tolkki finally managed to reunite the legendary STRATOVARIUS “Dreamspace” lineup, calling Antti Ikonen and Tuomo Lassila to play keyboards and drums respectively. “It was really nice and brought good vibes and freshness to the album,” tells Timo. “Definitely the right move.”

The amazing cast of vocalists appearing this time includes NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen – who takes care of the lead vocals on the first single “Design The Century” – along with Simone Simons (EPICA), Fabio Lione (RHAPSODY OF FIRE), David DeFeis (VIRGIN STEELE), Zachary Stevens (ex-SAVATAGE, CIRCLE II CIRCLE), plus Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE) – who appears again after contributing to the first album – and the stunning Chilean singer Caterina Nix, who is working on her debut album which is also produced by Tolkki. “Some songs were written with a specific singer in mind, while for some others I decided based on the knowledge that I had on how he or she would perform. I am particularly happy of how this record sounds especially two songs You’ll Bleed Forever and the 10 minute title track are among my favourite ever”, says Tolkki.

Once again the stunning artwork is provided by the French artist Stanis W. Decker and the first pressing of the physical edition will be available in a glossy digipak.

The Legendary ALICE COOPER Welcomes YOU To His Nightmare!

March 11th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

j9h8_Picture2_2

Banger Films, in association with Eagle Rock Entertainment, presents ALICE COOPER in Super Duper Alice Cooper, the brand new official ALICE COOPER documentary distributed by SpectiCast (As The Palaces Burn, Aerosmith: Rock for the Rising Sun, Morrissey 25: Live).

Super Duper Alice Cooper will premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and will hit theaters nationwide beginning May 30, 2014. The film is the first ever ‘doc opera’ – a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of ALICE COOPER.

In order to make Super Duper Alice Cooper as interactive for his devoted fans as he possibly can, ALICE COOPER is putting together a special pre-recorded “Keep Calm & Go Ask Alice” Q&A that will run following each theatrical screening. In order for Alice to give some wild answers, he’ll require some burning questions from fans, so he’s inviting YOU to ask him anything now via www.SuperDuperAliceCooper.com (click the “Keep Calm & Go Ask Alice” graphic). Once the submission period is closed, Alice will personally handpick select questions and answer them via video, serving as the aforementioned Q&A. So, do you want your question to be answered in the pre-recorded ALICE COOPER Q&A running after each and every screening in the U.S.? Of course you do! Submit your questions now via www.SuperDuperAliceCooper.com.

Super Duper Alice Cooper is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n’ roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as ALICE COOPER, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60’s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s’ souls. Alice’s story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original ALICE COOPER band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon, and Dee Snider.

Super Duper Alice Cooper is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn at Banger Films, producers of Iron Maiden: Flight 666 (2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner) and Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010 Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner), and much-lauded filmmaker Reginald Harkema, winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film Monkey Warfare.

MOTÖRHEAD’s Motörboat, The Loudest Boat In The World Sets Sail Sept 22nd

March 11th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

7huu_MB14

Megadeth, Motörhead, and Anthrax -three of the greatest heavy metal bands in the world – will perform at the first annual Motörhead’s Motörboat cruise onboard the Carnival Ecstasy from September 22-26, 2014. In addition to these three rock giants, “The Loudest Boat In The World” will also feature performances from Zakk Wylde, Jim Breuer, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, Wilson, and some big surprises…more bands to be announced soon.

Motörhead’s Motörboat will sail from Miami, visiting the ports of Key West, Florida and Cozumel just off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. While onboard, guests will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with band members and will see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship.

Tickets for Motörhead’s Motörboat go on sale Tuesday, March 18 at Noon ET. The event website–www.MotorheadCruise.com–will launch later this week with full details and cabin pricing.

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister proclaims, “This will be everything you’ve come to expect from a night out with us, except even louder, with more great bands and no way of escaping! If you thought waves could rock a boat, you’ve got another thing coming with this lovely little outing!”

Scott Ian of Anthrax adds, “Anthrax, Motörhead and Megadeth at sea??? To quote Chief Brody [Jaws], ‘We’re going to need a bigger boat.’”

“It’s truly an honor to partner with one of the most iconic bands in rock music to deliver a one of a kind fan experience for ‘Motorheadbangers’ from around the globe,” says event producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment.

Motörhead–the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time–released their mammoth 21st studio album Aftershock in October 2013. Aftershock is one of Motörhead’s best-selling and highest-charting albums in 20 years, debuting at #22 on the Billboard 200. Through tenacity, hard work, and a deep-seated ability to produce an original, face-melting sound, Motörhead–Lemmy Kilmister (bass, vocals), Phil Campbell (guitar) and Mikkey Dee (drums)–has become one of the most popular bands in the world with a fanbase that is second to none. www.imotorhead.com

In a career nearing 30 years, heavy metal titans Megadeth have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning five consecutive platinum albums and numerous accolades along the way, including 11 Grammy nominations.  The band’s latest studio album, Super Collider, features vocalist/guitarist/founder Dave Mustaine once again reunited with guitarist Chris Broderick, bassist David Ellefson, and drummer Shawn Drover.  Released in June 2013, Super Collider debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, Megadeth’s highest chart debut since 1994’s Youthanasia. In April, Megadeth is set to embark on a world tour in over 25 countries across four continents. The tour follows a first-ever performance at Copley Symphony Hall on April 12, where Dave Mustaine will collaborate with the San Diego Symphony. www.megadeth.com

Since the September 2011 release of Worship Music, five-time Grammy-nominated Anthrax has experienced a tremendous comeback. “Classic era” vocalist Joey Belladonna rejoined the lineup in the spring of 2010, fronting for the band on The Big Four shows across Europe, at NY’s Yankee Stadium and at the SoCal Coachella site. In 2012, Anthrax–Joey Belladonna (vocals), Scott Ian (guitar), Charlie Benante (drums) and Frank Bello (bass)–became the first metal band to have its music played on Mars when its “Got The Time” was chosen by NASA to wake up the Mars Rover. The band is currently writing and demoing new material for the follow up to Worship Music that is expected out late 2014/early 2015. www.anthrax.com

The Carnival Ecstasy, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment, features a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area, multiple dining options (including a 24-hour pizzeria), 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival health club, a jogging track, as well as 12 lounges, bars and nightspots.

“Capricia Productions” Launches Indiegogo Funding Campaign for The Birdcage, First Ever Music Album To Be Released as a Videogame

March 10th, 2014

“Capricia Productions” Launches Indiegogo Funding Campaign for The Birdcage, First Ever Music Album To Be Released as a Videogame

 

Featuring Artists from Rock Legends Guns N’ Roses, Evanescence, Within Temptation, Kamelot and Others

 

JERUSALEM, March 06, 2014 – Indiegogo, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform announces today that Capricia’s funding campaign for the first ever music album created as a videogame The Birdcage is now live. The Birdcage is the first music concept rock album ever to be released as a full-scale video game instead of as a traditional CD or Mp3 download. The groundbreaking album entirely visualized as a videogame is a modern rock re-creation of The Beauty and the Beast fairytale with the music driving and creating the story rather than the music complimenting and coming secondary to the story and action. In order to create the perfect soul shattering music, big guns of rock from bands such as “Guns N’ Roses”, Evanescence, Within Temptation, Kamelot, Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, and many others were enlisted.

“Albums don’t sell like they used to, so how do we create music that we want to make while also avoiding the starving artist label?” said Arnold Nesis, Music Producer for The Birdcage. “We believe that we have found a way to change the music industry by combining the haunting and heart racing sound of an album created by the best rock artists in the world with the immersive and soul wrenching environments, storyline and interactivity of a videogame to create a truly unique and industry changing product.”

The Birdcage retells the Folk legend of Beauty and the Beast the way it should have been to begin with – as a conceptual, story driven, rock album, set in modern times that deals with the psychological and social aspects of this grim crime. The beauty, Gitta is a young and fair looking girl, living in a trailer park with her drunk and abusive father and her lazy mean older sister. She loathes them both. Her mother has left many years ago. Gitta works hard as a waitress at a local diner and dreams of the day she’ll leave her family and the gloomy trailer park just like her mother. Her plans are disturbed when her father loses a big sum of money while participating in illegal gambling at the house of a mysterious rich person called Bres. Her father is given an ultimatum – he is to submit his younger daughter to Bres or he’ll be killed. The father doesn’t think twice – he drugs Gitta and gives her up to Bres, warned that if he turns to the police, both he and Gitta will be shot. From here on the plot follows the development of the abusive relationship between Gitta and Bres, as Gitta’s affection towards him grows, and the events rush towards the inevitable end.

The Birdcage funders will have the option of choosing a reward based on the amount of money that they contribute. Some of the rewards include getting their photos into the game, signed props from the musicians in the game, original recorded materials and even the opportunity to perform in the album itself side by side with the legendary artists.

SEPTUAGINT to release debut through FOREVER PLAGUED, unveil teaser video

March 10th, 2014
by EvilG

FOREVER PLAGUED RECORDS sets April 7th as the release date for SEPTUAGINT’s debut MCD, Negative Void Trinity. Another prospective band from the fertile Greek black metal scene, SEPTUAGINT play a fast black metal style that knows when to pace itself – not much different from some bands under the moniker of orthodox BM, but with their own Mediterranean flair. Lyrically, SEPTUAGINT are very religious, but the duo also distance themselves, to a certain degree, from being absorbed completely in any particular theological train of thought. Since 2006, Codex has been trying to compile his work to no avail. It’s taken seven years to get all his work together for their debut EP, Negative Void Trinity, which is being proudly released by FOREVER PLAGUED. Highly recommended to anyone who is following the Greek scene, firstly, then of course, bands like of Aosoth, Ascension, Avichi, Acherontas, Nightbringer, etc. The first taste of SEPTUAGINT can be heard HERE, in a pre-release teaser video. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:

70000 tons Of Metal is the biggest heavy metal cruise on the planet. It has gained and created a loyal and fanatical following amongst metal fans around the globe in a short few years. Even though there were a lot of discussions, and even some outrage on the official 70000tons forum and social media, about the long silence while waiting to hear about the booking of the bands. However, the whole cruise was a surrealistic experience for journalists and fans alike. Spirits were not dampened by a rainy day which whipped the Caribbean sea and the ship, Majesty Of The Seas, about.  The metallic mayhem on the sea sailed from Miami, Florida to Costa Maya, Mexico and back. Here is the brief write-up of all these bands who appeared on the ship.
