FORBIDDEN: Comment on First Tour in 15 Years

November 3rd, 2010

Forbidden 2010

Forbidden 2010

Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN are set to embark on their first tour in 15 years, this time as direct support to Overkill! Immediately proceeding the trek the band will continue on their own headlining tour with Evile, Gamma Bomb, and Bonded By Blood.

“It’s been 15 years since FORBIDDEN has actually toured in North America,“ commented an enthusiastic Craig Locicero. “That blows my fucking mind to say it! The funny thing is that even when we did tour here, we never properly did it. It was always a very short cycle with little or no support from the labels. Well, times have changed and so has FORBIDDEN’s situation. With Nuclear Blast having our backs and properly promoting and supporting Omega Wave,  I feel a sense of hope for this band that we have never felt before. Strange feeling, really. But we will take it.

Our goal is to get better every night and eventually become the live band that we never got to be. That takes dedication and a lot of hard work. We’re digging in commiting to just that.

We hope our fans will appreciate us as much as we appreciate them. See you all on the road soon!“

ROB HALFORD – My Favorite BLACK SABBATH Album Is…

November 3rd, 2010
by EvilG
Rob Halford

Rob Halford

JUDAS PRIEST singer ROB HALFORD spoke with Steve Newton from Straight.com recently about his upcoming dates opening for BLACK SABBATH singer OZZY OSBOURNE. When asked what his fave Black Sabbath album was, the Metal God chose the band’s scary self-titled debut from 1970.

“It took 24 hours to make,” he says, “believe it or not, but the sound is absolutely mindblowing. If you just listen to the sound, how they were able to do that work in such a short space of time is extraordinary.

“I think a lot of musicians agree that generally your first record is very, very important,” he adds, “because you’re really coming from a very pure, new, uncluttered source. You’ve got nothing to prove because you’ve proved nothing yet; you haven’t really got a massive fanbase, so you’re searching to build that. Your record company’s not interfering with your music as they tend to do when you become successful—same with managers, agents, promoters. You’re really coming into your existence at a different level.

“If you look back at the history of your favourite band, generally the first couple are the ones that really kind of grab you. So that’s why I feel that first Sabbath album for me—much like Sad Wings of Destiny for Judas Priest—is a very important release.”

Halford has performed as the vocalist for Black Sabbath at three shows. He replaced Ronnie James Dio for two nights in November 1992, when Dio elected not to open a show for Ozzy Osbourne. Halford also replaced Osbourne in Black Sabbath on August 25, 2004 (his 53rd birthday) at an Ozzfest show in Camden, New Jersey, since Osbourne could not perform due to bronchitis.

DEMONIC RESURRECTION EXTENDS ‘THE UNRELENTING GUITAR COVER CONTEST’

November 3rd, 2010
by EvilG

On 11th October Indian Metallers Demonic Resurrection announced ‘The Unrelenting Guitar Cover Contest’ inviting fans to upload a guitar cover of the song ‘The Unrelenting Surge Of Vengeance’ from the album ‘The Return To Darkness’ which was released on Demonstealer Records in India and Candlelight Records Worldwide. After many requests from fans the band has extended and expanded the contest.

The cover contest required guitar players to record a video of them covering of the song and upload it on youtube. The prize was a bag of signed Demonic Resurrection goodies and a kickass ESP Guitar T-Shirt. However the band has upped the prize to an additional 1500 INR gift voucher from Furtados Music who are the biggest importers for musical instruments in India as well as have a chain of retail stores for instruments.

The band has also extended the contest to vocalists, bass players and drummers. Backing tracks for all instruments have been uploaded to their reverbnation page (www.reverbnation.com/demonicresurrection) for fans to download and use for their entries.

All contest details are posted online on the bands Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/notes/demonic-resurrection/the-unrelenting-cover-contest-extended-version-20/449582824810

“The response to the contest has been over whelming, we thought this would primarily be for our Indian fans but we got entries from the USA and even from Nepal. We also had a lot of vocalists and bassists etc who also wanted to cover the song so we decided to expand it and have it for them as well. We’ve got some good versions from the guitar players so far and we can’t wait to see what the vocalists, drummers and bassists come up with.” – Demonstealer (Vocals/Guitars)

Current entries for the guitar contest can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/user/DemonicTube#grid/user/EF670B202C19C0E1

Check out the recently issued video update from the band HERE.   Said Hellbound of the band’s stop in Seattle: “…this show was not about recreating the past. It was about proving that the fighting spirit of Suicidal lives on. Their drive, their energy, their relentless positivity comes through in every single performance, every single song.” Added Oregon Music News of their performance in Portland: “When the set ended there were blood, sweat and tears shed, and in some cases all three. And that’s a sign of an epic metal show.”
