WOE’s Quietly, Undramatically Release Date Confirmed

August 11th, 2010
by EvilG

Candlelight Records today confirms October 12 as the North American release date for Quietly, Undramatically, the new album from WOE. Recorded at Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, New Jersey with additional tracking completed at frontman Chris Grigg’s BS1 in Philadelphia, the album is the first to feature a full band ensemble comprised of members from Absu, Woods of Ypres, The Green Evening Requiem, Infernal Stronghold and Rumpelstiltskin Grinder.

Formed in 2007, WOE originally began as a solo project of Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist Chris Grigg. Popular site Metal Review called WOE’s debut, A Spell For The Death Of Man (2008/Stronghold Records), “easily 2008’s most criminally overlooked album” while Mouth For War notes, “balancing technical mastery with desolate atmospherics, A Spell For The Death Of Man shears through the fabric of society with ferocious aggression and a hatred for mankind.” Teeth Of The Divine adds, “WOE turns out to be one of the very best pure black metal bands I’ve heard is some time. It captures the misanthropy, tortured melody, scarred atmospherics and introspective, craggy nihilism of the genre.”

Reveals Grigg, “Quietly, Undramatically is a major step forward for WOE. Not only is it our first release for Candlelight Records but the debut of WOE: the band as opposed to WOE: the solo project. The performances of Evan Madden (drums) and Shane Madden (bass) bring WOE to a whole new level. It is a much more mature album, featuring dynamics and ideas that WOE has never been able to tackle before. We are all very excited for this album’s release and the subsequent live performances in support of it!”

Quietly, Undramatically is WOE’s first release for England’s Candlelight Records. The album reunites the band with designer/illustrator Justin Miller. “Justin and I have worked together on different projects for years now and he has never let me down. I consider his art an additional song on the album — the most important song, the one that ties it all together. Sound is what I do, sight is what he does, and it is a relief to know that WOE‘s presentation is handled with such feeling.”

Track listing for Quietly, Undramatically is: 1) No Solitude, 2) The Road From Recovery, 3) Quietly, Undramatically, 4) A Treatise on Control, 5) Without Logic, 6) Full Circle, 7) Hatred is Our Heart.

WOE will celebrate the release with a free performance, along with labelmates KRIEG, at Philadelphia’s Kung Fu Necktie (1248 North Front Street) on October 28.  For additional live performances visit the band’s recently redesigned site at: http://----escape_autolink_uri:e07a4ee789ecad6d77485637e160be2b----.

Deluxe 2CD and Digital Packages Feature Remastered Original Album Plus 13 Bonus Tracks, Including 10 Previously Unreleased Live Recordings
Hollywood, California – Queensrÿche has partnered with Capitol/EMI for the September 14 release of an expanded 20th Anniversary Edition of the band’s triple platinum-certified breakout album, Empire.

After building a devoted fan base with album and EP releases throughout the 1980s, including 1988’s critically acclaimed Operation: Mindcrime, Queensrÿche broke into the mainstream across North America and abroad with the 1990 release of Empire.  In the U.S., the album peaked at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and its hit ballad “Silent Lucidity” quickly became a heavy rotation staple at rock radio and on MTV, topping Billboard’s Modern Rock singles chart and earning Queensrÿche the coveted MTV Viewers Choice Award for the song’s music video. Empire also made the U.K.’s Top 10, and the album’s international success led to Queensrÿche’s 18-month headlining “Building Empires” world tour, the band’s longest trek to date.

Empire also features the Billboard Top 10 Modern Rock hits “Jet City Woman” and “Another Rainy Night,” the Top 20 single, “Anybody Listening?,” and the Top 30 singles “Best I Can” and Empire.”  In addition to the aforementioned live recordings, Empire (20th Anniversary Edition)’s bonus tracks include “Last Time in Paris” from the Ford Forlaine soundtrack, “Dirty Lil’ Secret,” and the band’s cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Scarborough Fair.”

THRALL set North American release date for debut album

August 10th, 2010
by EvilG

Today, MORIBUND RECORDS announces the North American release date of THRALL’s debut album, Away From the Haunts of Men, as November 9th, 2010. Originally released overseas earlier this year by Total Holocaust Records, the North American edition of THRALL’s Away From the Haunts of Men will include an exclusive bonus video for the track “Torrent of Death,” which can be viewed in the meantime here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_tBBmdRS4A

Comments the band, “THRALL are pleased to collaborate with the legendary MORIBUND CULT for the North American edition of our debut album, Away from the Haunts of Men. We strive to spread our contagious virulence to all mankind!” The band also details its aims here:

ORIGINS:

THRALL is a Tasmanian black metal/doom band. You may ask, why does this matter? The howling gales of Antarctica have ironically sheltered large tracts of Tasmania from human habituation to this day. Since European settlement in 1803, the island’s history has included the genocide of the Tasmanian aboriginals and cases of cannibalism among escaped convicts. THRALL is a product of this landscape, this history and no other.

IDEALOGY:
“Homosapiens are a plague mindlessly consuming the last of the Earth’s resources; mass extinction/ecological cataclysm is upon us. THRALL’s music howls a pro-void mantra advocating the post-human era. THRALL is an embodiment of the contradiction of being inherently human yet anti-human.

MUSIC:
THRALL fuse the mid-paced blastbeats of old-school black metal with lush vacuum-tube-soaked guitars. THRALL’s instrumentation is textured and diverse, from primal black metal songs to spacious doom epics and atmospheric soundscapes. Seemingly primitive music is partnered with high-end production values, whilst remaining bile-soaked and sincerely misanthropic.”

Trixter Guitarist Added to Fat Chick Tribute Album

August 10th, 2010
by EvilG

WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks

WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks

Trixter guitarist Steve Brown has joined the roster of the upcoming tribute album “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks.” Steve puts a rock spin on the hit single “Big Girl (You Are Beautiful),” made famous by current pop sensation Mika. A celebratory affirmation of plus-sized women, it was written as the theme for the Butterfly Lounge, a California nightclub catering to larger ladies and their admirers. The song was an international Top 40 hit in 2007 and has been featured on such TV shows as ABC‘s “Ugly Betty” and “Good Morning America.” Brown took the dance beat of the original and infused it with his own patented guitar stylings, adding a hard rock coating around its pop center. A sample of the song is now available at the official “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE” MySpace page.

http://www.myspace.com/WholeLottaLoveTribute

“Women make the world go ’round,” states an enthusiastic Steve Brown. “All shapes and sizes, I love ‘em all! As such, this is the perfect song for me. I stuck with the dance groove and added some big guitars and huge vocals to take this tune to the next level. It rocks and it (jelly) rolls!”

Also confirmed for the tribute is the inclusion of a track from newcomers Triangle Exception, who contribute a cover of the song “Big, Fat, Sexy Mama.” Channeling the spirits of the Rolling Stones and the New York Dolls, “Big, Fat, Sexy Mama” is a raucous ballad extolling the virtues of making love to a fuller figured woman. The song originated with New York City underground sensation The Compulsions, hailed by “Classic Rock” magazine as “The Coolest Band in the World” and featuring frontman Rob Carlyle, alongside current Guns N Roses members Richard Fortus and Frank Ferrer. A sample of the song is now available at the official “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE” MySpace page.

by EvilG
GRAVEWURM  - "BLOOD OF THE PENTAGRAM"

GRAVEWURM - "BLOOD OF THE PENTAGRAM"

From the deepest pit of the American underground crawls the cult GRAVEWURM, relentlessly pursuing their muse since 1990: only the darkest, ugliest, absolutely swampiest blackdeath. Now with their seventh and final album Blood of the Pentagram, GRAVEWURM continue to perfect that muse, engrossingly hypnotizing with an addictive minimalism that’s simply bred for headbanging. Darker than ever, uglier than ever, and ever obedient to his majesty at the swamp – drink deep the Blood of the Pentagram!

Recommended for diehards of GOATLORD, SODOM, HELLHAMMER, NUNSLAUGHTER, early VARATHRON, and SATHANAS/BATHYM!

SATAN’S HOST reveal new album title, offer studio report w/ original vocalist Harry Conklin

Satan's Host 2010 lineup

Satanic metal warlords SATAN’S HOST are currently at Flatline Audio with legendary super-producer Dave Otero working on the bands ninth studio album, entitled By the Hands of the Devil, to be released next year by MORIBUND RECORDS.

With the departure of vocalist Eli Elixir and the return of Leviathan Thisiren (AKA Harry Conklin, of JAG PANZER and Titan Force) into the SH grotto on vocals, the band has recently performed in Germany for the Keep True Festival in April 2010, and have done some local Colorado shows to prepare for the new album. Founding six-string sorcerer Patrick Evil, with his cornucopia of uber-evil riffs, has been at the top of his game with all-new tracks that will devour the weak at heart and those who try to dismiss this true metal virtuoso. Anthony “Evil Hobbit” Lopez, making his second appearance on the drums of doom, has taken the groove to a new hellish high, and with the addition of Margar on dass, SATAN’S HOST have taken their musical journey to new, darker realms with deeper and broader themes and lyrical content. Adds Patrick Evil, “I think this will be our greatest album to date. Our ninth release for our 25th aniversary – how much better can it get than that?” Prepare for a revival of the primal!!!
