Today the band premieres the next new single from Raise a Little Hell entitled “Long Live the Renegades” exclusively at GuitarWorld.com the online home of Guitar World Magazine.  Listen to the song HERE.

The band commented on the new track:

“The song is a bit of a rocker and we tried a slightly different production technique on this track by keeping it very dry.  The song is about just doing what you do best and having a bit of a bunker mentality. This is our fifth album and we’ve gone back to our earlier blues and roots style with what we think are harder rockin’ grooves. Hope you like it as much as we do!”

IMPELLITTERI return with a new studio album « Venom »

February 11th, 2015

Impellitteri - VENOM

Impellitteri – VENOM

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the brand new IMPELLITTERI studio album entitled “Venom” on April 17th in Europe and April 21st in North America.

With the release of the new album titled “Venom”, IMPELLITTERI deliver a record filled with addictive and memorable riffs, guitar solos that feature Chris Impellitteri’s blistering shredding technique coupled with strong melody and taste. Rob Rock vocals are mesmerizing, melodic, and will make the listener sing along with each song long after the record is over. Lastly, the band boggles the mind with brutal drumming (featuring John Dette, ex TESTAMENT, SLAYER etc) filled with speed and groove and beastly bass playing (curtesy of James Pulli) that supports IMPELLITTERI’s sonic madness! The result is a record that excites and musically satisfy every Metal and Rock fan, and every musician around the world.  To add to their quest, IMPELLITTERI also wanted to create music that would take the listener on a musical journey thru different time periods of metal and rock.

Chris Impellitteri is heralded as one of the world’s greatest guitar shredders. He has won Best Rock Guitarist Awards on several magazines during the years for his guitar soloing. He is the first guitarist to be branded as the fastest guitarist in the world by the international media. Recently and without any promotion, Impellitteri was officially voted 2nd fastest guitarist in the world by “Guitar One” magazine; and “Guitar World” magazine recently listed Chris Impellitteri within their top 50 fastest guitarists of all time!

FAITH NO MORE To Release SOL INVICTUS On May 19th

February 10th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

Dustin Rabin Photography, Faith No More, FNM, Dustin Rabin

Sol Invictus, Faith No More’s highly anticipated follow-up to Album of the Year, arrives on May 19 via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings.

“What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch,” explained Bill Gould in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of “space.” Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good. “

Sol Invictus was produced by Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland, Calif. studio.

Winter Warmer 2015

@ The Windmill, London

Review and Photography by Ashlinn Nash

winter-warmer-weekender-2015

As a standard winter and summer tradition most metal and stoner fans take the pilgrimage to the far end of Brixton to enjoy a sweating, breathing room glazed with honey roasted tunes for two days solid. When Planets Collide this year have put together a third instalment of this all out good times fest with the likes of XII boar, Trippy wicked and the cosmic Children of the knight, Mother Corona among others. Due to illness I was only able to make one of the nights, but my, it was a cracking one.

Crocell reveal album artwork for “Prophet’s Breath”

February 9th, 2015
by EvilG

The Danish blackened death metal outfit Crocell will release their fourth album, “Prophet’s Breath”, through Deepsend Records in the spring 2015.

Like on Crocell’s previous album, “Come Forth Plague” (2013), the artwork is painted by the tattoo artist Odin Roar Uldall, and the layout has been done by Tue Rislund.

“Prophet’s Breath” will be Crocell’s first album with guitarist Rasmus “Hexen” Henriksen (Seed of Heresy, ex-Panzerchrist, ex-Die, etc.) on board and as the cover suggests, the album is a dark and destructive affair.

No exact release date has been set yet, but the album is released this spring.

Rock Legends EUROPE Launch North American Premiere of “War of Kings” Music Video

February 9th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

image001
Swedish rock legends EUROPE will release their 10th studio album, War of Kings, on March 10, 2015 in the United States via Hell & Back Recordings. In celebration of the release, the band has launched the official worldwide premiere of their new music video for the title track “War of Kings”, directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company (In Flames, At The Gates, Arch Enemy).

UltimateClassicRock.com is hosting the North American premiere of the video. Watch the official video here: http://ultimateclassicrock.com/europe-war-of-kings-video/

Stay tuned for more tracks and teasers coming soon from EUROPE in anticipation of War of Kings!

War of Kings will be available in multiple formats, as a CD digipak, a CD jewel case, a vinyl LP and in digital download format.

Recorded at the brand new PanGaia Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, produced by Dave Cobb (Rival Sons) and engineered by John Netti, War of Kings sees the quintet confidently creating 11 monstrously melodic, yet hard-hitting classic rock’n’roll standouts for their fervent global audience.

War of Kings tracklisting:

1) War Of Kings
2) Hole In My Pocket
3) Second Day
4) Praise You
5) Nothin’ To Ya
6) California 405
7) Days Of Rock n Roll
8) Children Of The Mind
9) Rainbow Bridge
10) Angels (With Broken Hearts)
11) Light Me Up
Bonus: Vasastan (Instrumental)

EUROPE’s place as a legendary classic rock band was platinum-stamped early in their career, having enjoyed an explosive period of worldwide success in the ‘80s, under-pinned by their hit album and single The Final Countdown, before going on hiatus between 1992 and 2003. They reunited and quickly settled into a period of re-establishment which has seen them re-enforce their reputation worldwide as one of the premier purveyors of blues-tinged classic rock with an edge and some kick. Their last album, 2012’s Bag of Bones, saw EUROPE hit the UK top 40 rock album charts and debut at #2 on the Swedish national charts.

War of Kings is set to take full advantage of the global groundwork EUROPE have put in over the last few years.

EUROPE is:
Joey Tempest – lead vocals, acoustic & rhythm guitar, keyboards
John Norum – lead & rhythm guitars, backing vocals
John Leven – bass, backing vocals
Mic Michaeli – keyboards, piano, backing vocals, rhythm guitar
Ian Haugland – drums, percussion, backing vocals

Review by Nick Adamson

On a cold January night in Manchester it’s awesome see many people pouring through the doors of Academy 2 to see three of the most exciting metal bands touring today. Savage Messiah are an up and coming British thrash band carving themselves reputation, Huntress are no strangers to our fair isles building on an already pretty firm fan base, and Amon Amarth, who have been Viking their way across Europe and the United States for years leaving hordes of loyal warriors in their wake.
