Slayer - The Vinyl Conflict - Product Shot

“Slayer defines speed metal and these albums define Slayer.  Listen at your own risk.”
— Rick Rubin

LOS ANGELES, CA (Monday, August 16, 2010) — For the first time in its near 30-year history, Slayer, the single most distinctive and radical thrash metal band ever, will see its ten American Recordings albums released as a limited-edition, high-end box set – The Vinyl Conflict (American Recordings/Sony Legacy).  Ten albums on 11 discs, The Vinyl Conflict will feature the band’s entire Def/American Recordings catalogue:  Reign in Blood (1986), South of Heaveneasons (1988), Seasons In The Abyss (1990), the double-record Live Decade of Aggression (1991), Divine Intervention (1994), Undisputed Attitude (1998), God Hates Us All (2001), Christ Illusion (2006), and World Painted Blood (2009).  The Vinyl Conflict will be released on October 12, 2010; check Slayer’s website (www[dot]slayer[dot]net) or Amazon[dot]com for pricing.

“Most longtime Slayer fans may not have these records at this point,” said American Recordings’ Dino Paredes, “or their copies are completely beat-up, so to have the complete catalogue in this first-class presentation is terrific.  For the newer fans, this is their opportunity to really get into this band the way that they could have if they were born 20 years earlier.”

American/Sony Legacy invested a great amount of care into making The Vinyl Conflict, treating the albums the way they would treat a great jazz, classical, Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record, something that isn’t normally done for metal records.  All ten albums have been re-mastered from the original analog flat master tapes and were pressed on the highest quality, 180-gram audiophile vinyl at RTI, the most respected pressing plant in the U.S. and among the best in the world.  Lacquers were cut and re-cut several times to ensure the highest sound quality.  The individual vinyl discs will come in a standard, clear inner sleeve to preserve the vinyl, are then housed in high-quality litho-wrapped jackets, and then boxed in a hardcover slipcase.  Additionally, reproductions of the original LP inner sleeve artwork were converted to 12X12 inserts.

“The vinyl box is a real treat for fans, especially with today’s renewed and increased interest in vinyl,” added Sony Legacy’s Adam Farber.  “It’s been years and years since the Slayer vinyl has been in print – only the two most recent albums are currently available on vinyl, the rest have been out of print for years and very hard to find.  These albums sound spectacular – they sound like you’ve never heard them before.”

“Everything about ‘The Vinyl Conflict’ – the look of it, the feel of it – it’s very strong, very powerful, very Slayer,” added Paredes, “from the music to the dripping, bloody pentagram on the front of the box.  It’s perfect.”

The Chicago Tribune‘s Greg Kot wrote that Slayer is “one of the great American rock bands of the last 30 years, forget about genre.”  Indeed, few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer – guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, vocalist/bassist Tom Araya, and drummer Dave Lombardo – bring to its live shows, having been named “Best Live Band” by numerous media outlets including Revolver, SPIN, and Metal Hammer.  The band has received numerous nominations and awards, including four Grammy nods and two wins.

Currently, Slayer is co-headlining the first leg of the American Carnage Tour with Megadeth that kicked off August 11 and goes through September 4.  In addition, the band’s three classic in-concert DVDs – Live Intrusion, War at the Warfield, and Still Reigning, will be released August 17, separately and as a limited-edition, 3-pak box set.

MOON – “Lucifer’s Horns” out in September!

August 16th, 2010
by EvilG

After reissues of first two albums by MooN that saw the light of day this spring under one title “Devil’s Return” it’s high time to present new, third album by this unique band – entitled “Lucifer’s Horns”. It’s definitely the highest achievement of Cezer since the release of cult “Moonlight” by Christ Agony. Fierce yet dark and atmospheric black/death metal – this is the essence of Moon at the end of first decade of XXI century. Two songs from this album are sung in Polish, the others in English. “Lucifer’s Horns” will be released on 15th September by Witching Hour Productions. Cover artwork and design was created by Black Team Media.

MooN, led by Cezar (Christ Agony) started recording third album “Lucifer’s Horns” on February 20th in Sinquest Studio in Lublin. Recording and engineering duties were handled by Arek „Malta” Malczewski well known for his cooperation  with Behemoth. Malta together with Cezar produced the album. MooN leader comments:

„I’m extremely excited with the fact then after 10 years of non-existence, I managed to create such solid piece of Metal. I’ve been waiting for all these years for comfortable situation and people with whom I could create my specific Plan. It’s also thanks to them that this album took its final form… First time in its history Moon is not only a project band… and never before this entity was so strong! “Lucifer’s Horns” is the new direction but still the following of once chosen path. I’m sure that not only Lucifer itself will be satisfied with this album, but his ‘lunar’ children as well…”

„Lucifer’s Horns” will be available as limited digipack in the shape of inverted cross and 12” black and white gatefold LP limited to 500 units and numbered. You can already check the title track “Lucifer’s Horns” at www.witchinghour.pl and www.myspace.com/moonsatanic

KISS – guitarist Tommy Thayer

by Marko Syrjala

KISS - Tommy Thayer

KISS – Tommy Thayer

TOMMY THAYER

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Tommy Thayer has been playing with KISS for years but for many he’s still “the new member” in the band. Thayer replaced original guitarist Ace Frehley in 2002 and since then he’s been playing the “Spaceman” character in the band. Thayer has been a member of KISS for over eight years now but he’s actually been working with KISS or some its members in many different occasions starting already in the late 80’s. Thayer’s old band Black’n Blue was working with Gene Simmons as their producer and since the band eventually broke up in 1989 Thayer’s been very close to KISS camp.  Although the original KISS have been gone for years, Eric Singer has replaced Peter Criss and plays the “Catman” character, the band is still going on strong and they keep on doing successful tours and performing in front of massive crowds around the globe. The current lineup released its first studio album titled SONIC BOOM on last year it has become another success story in their long history. Two years ago KISS did one of its most successful tours in history titled “Alive 35” and now they finally came back for more with their brand new “Sonic Boom over Europe” tour. The circus arrived in Malmo in early June and then I had a chance to sit down with Tommy and get some recent info from the “Spaceman” himself.

Sauna Open Air – Tampere Finland

August 14th, 2010

Sauna Open Air (Etelä Puisto, Tampere, Finland, 10. – 12.06/10)
Article and pics by Petri Da Costa


Sauna Open Air is pretty much the kick-off for the ”Festival Season” here in Finland and the first metal festival of the summer. This year, according to the organizers, there was a total audience of 23.000, with just the first day (Thursday) sold out. There was a feeling that this year’s SOA wasn’t a big hit among the fans. You could see already that from the last two days, which seemed kinda empty. Maybe it was because of the old money issue for the fans or maybe they weren’t that much interested in seeing some bands that seem to play quite often in SOA or other festivals.

EXUMER RETURNS TO POLAND AFTER 22 YEARS

August 13th, 2010
by EvilG

German thrashers EXUMER will play two shows in Poland during the 2nd part of their “EUROPEAN IGNITION TOUR 2010″, on October 8 and 9. This marks the band’s first live appearances in Poland after an absence of 22 years. EXUMER were among the first acts out of the Western territories to have their records released domestically in Poland during the 1980s.  The band’s popularity in Poland was confirmed by 3 sold-out live shows in 1988, each event drawing close to 8000 fans.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: ” We were very lucky to have our records released domestically in Poland and in Brazil in the 80s, opening up two huge markets that welcomed us with open arms, tons of record sales and thrashing fans. Times have changed and we do not expect thousands of people to come out to the two events we are scheduled to play in Poland as they have in the 1980s. Nevertheless, the amount of steady fan requests from Poland since our reformation 2 years ago makes us hopeful to see many of the old fans again and meet the new generation of Polish thrashers.”

MAGNUS reveals cover artwork and tracklist of their new album “Acceptance Of Death” – first in 15 years!

August 13th, 2010
by EvilG
Magnus - 2010

Magnus - 2010

One of the most important and influential bands in Poland, legend of extreme underground scene, will release its new album “Acceptance Of Death” on September 15th via Witching Hour Productions

MAGNUS signed a contract with Witching Hour Productions for releasing 2 studio albums and reissues of all recordings from the 90s.

First outcome of this cooperation will be “Acceptance Of Death” which includes 13 new songs or raw and brutal oldschool death/black metal:

1.False God
2.Appear
3.Spirits
4.Essence
5.Worm
6.To Understand Death
7.Private Religion
8.Nothing More
9.When You Rest 6 Feet Under
10.They’ll Bury
11.Mournful Song
12.Just Like Life
13.There’s No Use Lamenting
The album was recorded in three different places: Tower Studio, DSP Studio and ATK Studio. Mixing and mastering duties were handled by Marcin Bors in Fonoplastykon Studio.

MAGNUS “Acceptance Of Death”

MAGNUS “Acceptance Of Death”

Creators of “Scarlet Slaughterer”, “I Was Watching My Death” and “Alcoholic Suicide” return after 13 years since their last stage appearance – but their new effort will assure everyone that they are here stronger than ever. You can already listen to first song opening “Acceptance Of Death” entitled “False God” at www.withinghour.pl and www.myspace.com/magnus1989. “Acceptance Of Death” will hit the stores on September 15th as 10-panel exclusive digipack and 12” picture LP (hand-numbered and limited to 500 units)

Comments Rob Bandit (band leader and singer):

“We’ve been summoning ourselves for this ceremony for almost 16 years. Our mind were clean, free from responsibilities, and deadlines. In such favorable constellation – we created an album untouched by any dependencies, fast, heavy, furious and hideous – set of traits typical for Magnus. Every song on “Acceptance Of Death” is an impulse, deathly rasp of brain cells, destination, contempt, stigmatizing indifference, metal mobilization – and uncontaminated with any commercial thought.

“Acceptance Of Death” is the same Magnus you know from previous albums as it was recorded mostly by the same people who created “I Was Watching My Death” or “Alcoholic Suicide”, friends who understand each other, who follow the same path, who are bound with 20 years of friendship. However, since those early releases the earth revolved thousands of times – which had an impact on our paranormal minds – so expect Magnus of XXI century, reborn Magnus that is still uncompromising, honest and true”.

Songs’ structures, specific sound and atmosphere that reminds of such acts as SARCOFAGO and early SEPULTURA give us the impression of time being stopped in that decade. MAGNUS is the living legend and the proof of old school glory – you will have the chance to check it on your own on 15th September, when “Acceptance Of Death” will hit the stores – 40 minutes of uncompromising attack in vein of fierce Brazilian and Columbian acts.

Magnus, who started it’s career in 1987, recorded three incredible albums in the 90s, and played live with such acts as Napalm Death, Deicide, Gorefest, Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse. The band disbanded in 1997 to return with new album in 2010.

NECRONAUT: Cover Art + Track Listing Revealed

August 13th, 2010
by EvilG

After more than 20 active years within the death metal scene, former Dismember/Carnage drummer Fred Estby needed to express his passion for different kinds of extreme music; a passion he’s bore since his youth. In 2008, Estby started writing/recording material with the intention of utilizing one unique vocalist for each song. Dubbed NECRONAUT, the project would become a reality just one year later when the drummer began contacting the many talented metal musicians he had in mind.

NECRONAUT
‘s self-titled full-length is slated for release later this year via Regain Records. The cover was created by Chet Zar , known for his makeup effects for movies such as The Ring, Planet of the Apes and Darkman [http://www.chetzar.com]. NECRONAUT‘s approach is crude and dead simple a la early Bathory and Venom fused with Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden, but with an unorthodox, bass-heavy production that allows the album to stand out amongst its peers. The goal was primitive brute force, but because of the manner in which Estby chose to achieve it, he also managed to create an aura of pure malevolence that, prior to this album’s creation, was likely difficult to imagine. Check out the final track listing and guest list below. Check out the cover art here: http://tinyurl.com/26psgpk

Track list/Guest list:
1. Crimson Fields – Chris Reifert (Speech)
2. Twilight At The Trenches – Andreas “Drette” Axelson (Vocals)
3. In Dark Tribute – Hellbutcher (Vocals), Tyrant (Lead Guitar)
4. Soulside Serpents – JB (Vocals), Robert “Strings” Dahlqvist (Lead Guitar), Robert Pehrsson (Lead Guitar)
5. Infecting Madness – Chris Reifert (Vocals), Uffe Cederlund (Lead Guitar)
6. After The Void – Joakim Nilsson (Vocals), David Blomqvist (Lead Guitar)
7. The Lie In Which The Truth Is Buried – Fred Estby (Vocals), Nicke Andersson (Lead Guitar)
8. Returning To Kill The Light – Erik Danielsson (Vocals), JB (Lead Guitar)
9. Tower Of Death – Nicke Andersson (Vocals)
10. Rise Of The Sentinel – Tomas Lindberg (Vocals), David Blomqvist (Lead Guitar)

Who’s Who: Hellbutcher (Nifelheim), Tyrant (Nifelheim, Dagger), Andreas “Drette” Axelson (Tormented, Tortyr, ex-Edge Of Sanity), Chris Reifert (Autopsy, ex-Abscess), Uffe Cederlund (Disfear, Principals Of Existence, ex-Entombed), JB (Grand Magus), Erik (Watain), Tomas Lindberg (Disfear, At The Gates, The Great Deceiver), Nicke Andersson (Imperial State Electric, Death Breath), Joakim Nilsson (Graveyard), David Blomqvist (Dismember, Dagger, Shreds Of Death), Robert “Strings” Dahlqvist (Dundertåget, Thunder Express), Robert Pehrsson (Dundertåget, Death Breath, Thunder Express) http://www.myspace.com/necronaut666
