Anthrax's Benante Teams up with Disney for "Vinylmation" Figures
LOS ANGELES, CA – October 12, 2010 – A few months ago, Disney Product Developers Holli McHugh and Donald Ferro teamed up with Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante to create an epic new vinyl – “Vinylmation” that is. These new collectible figures are the hottest craze to hit Disney Parks & Resorts. Based on the character Mickey Mouse, the Vinylmation figures take on different looks, urban styles and characters, and often depict different Disney park attractions and icons.
Benante knew at a young age there was art and music in his blood. A Disney fan from the start, it was Walt Disney’s “Fantasia” that led him to get hooked on creating art in all forms, as well as his love for Mickey Mouse and the flawless and seamless animation that only Disney could provide.
Known mainly for his drumming skills, Benante has performed on over fifty tours spanning the globe and has been instrumental in the creation and development of the art and graphic designs seen on numerous band album covers, t-shirts and more.
Now, marching to the beat of another drum, comes Benante’s nine (9) music inspired 9″ Vinylmation figures. Benante has intricately wound gauze-like material reminiscent of sheet music around the Vinylmation, from head to toe, creating an almost mummified appearance with an ear for music and an eye for design, which is clearly a tribute to his love for music and art. Not one to kiss and tell, Benante has also created three additional Vinylmation figures he calls “Kisses.” How can you not love them?
If you want to check out Benante’s rocking’ new Vinylmation figures and meet the man himself, be sure and hit D Street in the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort on October 23 from 5-8PM. More details can be accessed at www.DisneyDStreet.com
You can also catch Benante and Anthrax, currently on the Jagermeister Fall Music Tour with Slayer and Megadeth. The band is currently working on their brand new album – with Joey Belladonna on vocals – that will be released in early 2011.
Remaining dates for the Jagermeister tour are as follows:
14 War Memorial Coliseum, Ft. Wayne, IN
15 DeltaPlex, Grand Rapids, MI
16 Eagles Ballroom, Milwaukee, WI
18 Summit Music Hall, Denver, CO (headline show)
19 Maverik Center, Salt Lake City, UT
20 The Pearl, Las Vegas, NV
21 Gibson Amphitheatre, Hollywood, CA
GREAT BRITAIN – Britain’s independent heavy metal powerhouse, Peaceville Records, will begin releasing new editions of classic Darkthrone albums later this month from the recently acquired Moonfog Productions catalogue titles.
The first re-issue, Panzerfaust, – Darkthrone’s fifth album overall – will be released as a double-disc set and individually numbered vinyl (2000) on October 25th. The 2-CD edition includes a bonus disc featuring commentary from Darkthrone’s infamous drummer/lyricist, Fenriz, for a first hand perspective behind the creation of the 1995 Frost-fuelled black metal masterpiece.
Additionally, Peaceville Records will re-issue the rare second Isengard release, Høstmørke(1995), on October 25th. The album, which was performed entirely by Fenriz, also features a special commentary disc conducted by Fenriz, reflecting on the recording process, as well as an insight into the time of the recording.
Slayer’s much anticipated Vinyl Conflict box set is now available via Slayer’s online store.
For nearly 30 years, Slayer has been the single most distinctive and radical thrash metal band anywhere. Graphic lyrics, saturated in controversy and disturbing imagery…the frenzied guitar playing, powerful vocals, and unrelenting pounding drums at breakneck speed…the unparalleled concert performances…the shocking and blood-fueled albums all have kept their rabid, head-banging fans enthralled in mayhem.
For the first time in the band’s storied history, The Vinyl Conflict collects all 10 original Slayer albums from American Recordings and puts them together in this limited edition box set. Each album has been re-mastered from the original flat master tapes and is pressed on the highest quality 180-gram audiophile vinyl. Also included are reproductions of the original LP artwork, including inner sleeve art, all in heavyweight, litho-wrapped chip jackets. From 1986’s Reign In Blood to 1994’s Divine Intervention to 2009’s World Painted Blood, it’s all here, it’s all on vinyl and it’s all original Slayer.

Today Stereogum premieres “The Grand Inquisitor II – Roots & Locusts,” the fifth track from Anthropocentric, the upcoming full-length from German progressive/atmospheric metal enigmas THE OCEAN. Set for a North American release on November 9 via Metal Blade Records, Anthropocentric serves as part two of the concept explored on the band’s well-received Heliocentric long player, released this past spring.
The concept at the base of both offerings is a critique of Christianity from varying philosophical and personal perspectives. Both records were recorded in the mountainous isolation of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the highest elevated city in Europe, and recorded and mixed by their house sound engineer Julien Fehlmann.
To check out “The Grand Inquisitor II – Roots & Locusts,” point your browser HERE. In addition, the LANDING PAGE for Anthropocentric is now live as well, offering fans in the US, UK, Canada, and Europe a chance to pre-order the album. “She Was The Universe,” the third track off Anthropocentric, is streaming now. Metal Blade Records will continue to update the LANDING PAGE leading up to and throughout the release of Anthropocentric with news, tours, dates, video footage, and more so be sure to check back frequently.
More on Anthropocentric:
Despite the fact that Darwin inaugurated a paradigm shift in modern natural science, his thoughts were not the last nail in Christianity’s coffin. There are still people who believe that the teachings in Genesis are to be taken verbatim. These people are at the crosslines of Anthropocentric. The album challenges the views of creationists and other modern fundamentalists who still believe that the earth is at the center of the universe and no more than 5,000 years old. Where Heliocentric covered a large range of dynamics and styles from calm, soulful songs based on piano and vocals to moments of eclectic heaviness, Anthropocentric is more straight forward, technical and soul-searingly heavy, whilst still tapping into the band’s signature range of dynamics.
A new video blog from Cradle Of Filth is now streaming on the mini-site for the band’s forthcoming album, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, at www.peaceville.com/cradleoffilth.
In the new video Dani and the rest of the band discuss how they work, their history, their plans for the future and some of the controversy that has followed them through their career.
In addition to this video the mini-site features also info about the album, a gallery featuring new band pics and elements from the album artwork, a link to download a MP3 of the track Lilith Immaculate, downloads and more. The site is being updated on a weekly basis with new video blogs, fan competitions, promo videos, new downloads and more.
A preview of Deceiving Eyes, a new track from the album, is also streaming on the mini-site. The track is also playing on the band’s iPhone app. A different track from the album is added to the site every Wednesday in the lead up to release on November 1st (November 9th in USA).
Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, released on the band’s own AbraCadaver imprint through Peaceville Records and through Nuclear Blast in the USA, is the band’s ninth studio album and has been described by Rocksound as displaying:
“a masterful control over the multi-faceted Cradle Of Filth sound; brutal vocal gymnastics, skull-rattling double-kicks, symphonic flourishes, dramatic narrative and balls-out axe-slinging all make their presence known, but in a manner which routinely serves to bolster the coherency of the greater whole…this fucking slays.” (9/10)
Details of the special fan’s edition are also now online. The limited boxset is available exclusively from the Peaceville site. Dani has already stated, this is will be, ‘the best Cradle Of Filth release that we have ever created, the ultimate version of our ultimate album. For you, our loyal mortal appreciators.’
The fans’ edition comes packaged in a deluxe hard box containing:
2CDs – the album plus a disc of bonus tracks and demos (including Adest Rosa Secreta Eros, an exclusive track that will not be available on any other edition of the album)
DVD – the promo video for Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned) plus a documentary on the making of the video
A LP sized 64 page hard-back book. The book features hi-quality artwork and photos and a short story based around the album written by Dani. A sneak preview of some of the pages from the book, which will also house the 2CDs and DVD included in the set, is now on the band’s mini-site.
· An exclusive t-shirt available only in this box
· A stunning limited edition lenticular 3D image of the album cover art , ready for framing
· Five 8” x 6”photographic prints of members of the band.
