TIM ‘RIPPER’ OWENS Performs JUDAS PRIEST Classic With PRIMAL FEAR

September 24th, 2010
by EvilG

Powerhouse American vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) joined German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR on stage on September 18, 2010 at Progresja in Warsaw, Poland to perform the JUDAS PRIEST classic “Metal Gods”.

Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below.

Owens is being backed by the following musicians during his current European tour:

* Andy Boss (PAUL DI’ANNO, ABSOLUTE STEEL) – Guitar

* Jon Vegard (PAUL DI’ANNO) – Guitar

* Are Gogstad (PAUL DI’ANNO, QUEENSTREET, ABSOLUTE STEEL) – Bass

* Rick Hagan (PAUL DI’ANNO, QUEENSTREET, ABSOLUTE STEEL, 21ST CENTURY ROX) – Drums

“Play My Game”, the first solo album from Owens, landed at position No. 66 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The CD was released via SPV/Steamhammer. The offering consists of around a dozen brand-new tracks that Owens composed himself or together with renowned friends, such as Bob Kulick, Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), Mike Callahan (ex-EARSHOT) and John Comprix (BEYOND FEAR, RINGWORM).

PRIMAL FEAR recently released a new live DVD, “16.6 – All Over The World” (recorded in various locations between September and November 2009), and a live CD, aptly titled “Live In The USA”. Frontiers Records issued the two products separately and as a limited-edition combo on June 22 in the USA. The DVD is filled with an abundance of extra materials, such as an entire bootleg section with funny moments on the road, bootleg footage from various festival appearances and other concerts, all of PRIMAL FEAR’s most recent promotional videos, plus the making-of footage for “16.6” and a brand new interview section about the past, present and future of PRIMAL FEAR.

by EvilG

September 20th sees the release of ‘The Embodiment Of Darkness And Light’ the debut album from Australian progressive death metal heavyweights Aeon of Horus through Harvest Moon Records.
Upon its initial release in 2009  ‘The Embodiment Of Darkness And Light’ receieved widespread critical acclaim due to its showcasing of technicality and rhythmic complexity with a sweeping dynamic, often venturing into symphonic passages and subtle melodic interludes.
TRACK LISTING:
3C321Conquering the Speed of LightThe Embodiment_ Part One – Of DarkThe Embodiment_ Part Two – And LightThe Pillars Arrogantly Opposing RealityIconHeru-Ra-HaAs the Earth Shatters (Part One)As the Earth Shatters (Part Two)

ABOUT THE BAND
Aeon of Horus is:
Andy Annand – Vocals & KeyboardBen Hocking – DrumsScott Carter – BassPeter Meere – Guitar
The four piece combines technicality and rhythmic complexity with a sweeping dynamic, often venturing into symphonic passages and subtle melodic interludes.
Aeon of Horus formed in 2006 and began playing live in early 2007.  By late 2007 they had recorded and released a self-titled EP.  The band continued to write and in early 2008 they began recording their first full length album, ‘The Embodiment of Darkness and Light’.
While their EP hinted at the intensity and superior musicianship of Aeon of Horus, this full length release showcases the culmination of their efforts in an epic sensory experience.  Crushing riffs and technicality combine with epic and dark movements to form a unique brand of progressive metal.
The latter part of 2010 is proving to be a busy time for the band.  Peter Meere, formally of melodic death metal outfit Templestowe has taken over guitar duties for the band with Scott Carter, mixer/engineer of the band’s debut album  taking over bass duties from the recently departed Chris Pratt.
Drummer Ben Hocking states: “We are very happy to have Pete and Scott in the band. Both are amazing musicians and breathe new life to our sound and vision. Having been friends of Aeon of Horus since its infancy, Pete and Scott were a logical choice and have taken to the band with ease”.
Having been hard at work on new material for a forthcoming release for several months, Aeon of Horus will be hitting the road in December and January around Australia to showcase both new material written with the new members and songs of the band’s acclaimed 2009 release The Embodiment of Darkness and Light.

by EvilG

RONNIE JAMES DIO: 'A Photographic Memoir' Due In November

RONNIE JAMES DIO: 'A Photographic Memoir' Due In November

Rufus Stone Limited Editions has set a November 30 release date for the “Ronnie James Dio – A Photographic Memoir” book.

Ronnie James Dio was one of rock’s most respected and talented frontmen, renowned for his instantly recognizable vocals, lyrics and stagecraft. On May 16, 2010, Ronnie succumbed to cancer and the world of hard rock lost one of its greatest talents.

Renowned music photographer PG Brunelli traveled the world with RonniePG‘s photography and weaves a memoir of Ronnie‘s life starting onstage at Donington Monsters of Rock in 1983. Featuring unique written contributions from Bruce Dickinson (IRON MAIDEN), Rob Halford (JUDAS PRIEST), Doug Aldrich (DIO, WHITESNAKE) and many of Ronnie‘s peers, colleagues and fellow professionals, this book has been compiled with the knowledge and approval of Dio‘s wife/manager, Wendy.

Available in two limited edition versions, starting at just £40 (plus postage and handling), “Ronnie James Dio – A Photographic Memoir” is released at the end of November 2010. To secure your standard or hardkase version (£150 plus postage and handling) early ordering is essential. £10 from the sale of the standard version and £30 from the sale of the hardkase edition will be donated to the Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, in honor of Ronnie James Dio.

BRET MICHAELS To Undergo Heart Surgery

September 24th, 2010
by EvilG

According to The Pulse of Radio, Bret Michaels’ health woes are not over yet. The rocker/reality star will undergo heart surgery in January to repair a hole in his heart — a condition he’s had since birth, but only recently discovered.

His rep said, “Is he 100 percent? No, but he’s in good spirits, he’s having fun on the road, he loves his fans and has always said music heals him. He said that there are times when, of course, he worries but he has great people around him and he’s very cautious.”

The hole was discovered after Michaels suffered a stroke several months ago — which came on the heels of a brain hemorrhage. He’s since made a remarkable recovery and returned to touring.

His rep added, “Maybe sometimes he gets a little tired easier and on occasion he’ll get a headache, but that’s when he knows it’s time to rest. He’ll rest up, have surgery, take some time off, hopefully take a family vacation and get back on the road touring and promoting his upcoming book.”
