SEPULTURA: Benefit Show With Orchestra To Take Place

April 12th, 2011
by EvilG

Legendary Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA, will play a special show together with the orquestra experimental de repertório on Saturday, April 16, 2011 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Check out the following video for more info on the event and some words explain the event from guitarist Andreas Kisserhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jR_PfXgcTt4.

About the benefit show:

“Since the mid 1700’s brazilwood (also known as pernambuco wood) has been vital in the manufacture of fine violins bows and other stringed instruments. Threatened with extinction, the lack of brazilwood will cause devastating effect in music.

Inspired in the documentary and book “The Music Tree” by InterFace Filmes, the concert for brazilwood will take place in São Paulo during the Virada Cultural 2011. 1000 brazilwood trees will be replanted by the Instituto Verde Brasil on behalf of the concert.”

SEPULTURA has tapped Roy Z. (JUDAS PRIEST, HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON, HELLOWEEN) to produce the group’s new CD, slated for an early summer release. The CD is once again being recorded at Trama Studios in São Paulo, Brazil.

Indestructible Noise Command’s (I.N.C.) Music Video for ‘God Loves Violence’ Airing Now at MTV.com

April 12th, 2011
by EvilG

New Details Released About Upcoming Music Video for ‘Swallowed’

Set to Release New Full-Length Album ‘Heaven Sent, Hellbound’ on May 24th, 2011

Internationally established thrash metal band INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND is pleased to announce that MTV.com is currently spinning their music video for ‘God Loves Violence’. Head to this link to view the video at MTV.com!

 

“After 24 years, it’s great to have a video airing with MTV,” states guitarist Erik Barath. “We’re very proud of this video. We really wanted it to match the song; something that grabs your face for five minutes, ripping it off by the end.”

 

INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND is scheduled to film their new music video for the single ‘Swallowed’ this coming May. The video is being shot by director Russell Hasenauer at Fort Hancock, a World War II site in Sandy Hook, NJ. This video hits close to home with vocalist and firefighter Dennis Gergely, who was present at Ground Zero on 9/11 helping to save lives and defend our U.S. soil. Being that the video is filming so close to New York City and at the site of a World War II fort, this video resonates personally with Dennis. More details about the music video will be released as they are confirmed.

 

Revolver Magazine recently debuted an exclusive new track, ‘Fist of Fascista’, at Revolvermag.com. The debut is part of Revolvermag.com’s monthly ‘Revolver Bootleg Series’ which features new, rare and exclusive music. ‘Fist of Fascista’ is cut from the band’s upcoming full-length release hitting stores on May 24th, 2011, Heaven Sent… Hellbound. The release is being produced by world-famous record producer Fredrik Nordström (At the Gates, In Flames, Opeth), and the artwork is illustrated by famous artist Sam Shearon (Iron Maiden, Rob Zombie, Fear Factory).

 

In it’s first week, INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND’s new EP Bleed the Line debuted at #4 Most Added on the CMJ Loud Rock charts. The EP entered the charts at #12 and is currently on the cusp of the top 10 at #11. The EP is currently spinning at many college and commercial radio stations nationwide. Bleed the Line EP is available now in digital format. Fans can download the record at iTunes and Amazon.com now.

 

Through humble beginnings in Connecticut, INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND exceeded their own expectations and the expectations of others with two successful full-length Giant Records releases, Razorback (1987) and The Visitor (1988). Giant Records signed I.N.C. after witnessing the band’s crushing live performances with the likes of Exodus, Megadeth and King Diamond; all of which taking place only six months after they had graduated high school. In 1988 with The Visitor, the band hit #1 on the CMJ Metal charts and stole the U.K. #2 Import slot out from underneath Aerosmith. Now based in New York City, the band is back with their Bleed the Line EP and Heaven Sent, Hellbound. I.N.C. is an original pioneer of the thrash metal scene, resurrected in order to take back a genre recently flooded with neo-thrash carbon copies. Revived and back with a vengeance, I.N.C. is ready to prove ownership of the scene in 2011.

 

INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND is:

Erik Barath – Guitar

Tony Fabrizi – Guitar

Dennis Gergely – Vocals

Dennis Leeflang – Drums

Samuel J. Roon – Bass

DEVIN TOWNSEND project announces tour with Children of Bodom; reveals covers for ‘deconstruction’ and ‘ghost’

April 12th, 2011
by EvilG

DTPbyAdamWillis

DEVIN TOWNSEND took over the progressive metal movement last year. With the release of ‘Addicted’ and subsequent touring across the globe, the former STRAPPING YOUNG LAD frontman has never had a higher profile – a point proven by the numerous sell-out performances on his most recent European tour. This continues to be the case in 2011, as DEVIN TOWNSEND gears up to release not one, but two brand new albums on June 20th via InsideOut Music. ‘Deconstruction’ and ‘Ghost’ are the final two chapters in Hevy Devy’s four-album concept series (along with ‘Ki’ and ‘Addicted’) and are sure to be two of the most talked about albums of the year!

Not only will TOWNSEND release two new albums, but he is also excited to announce that he will serve as direct support to Children of Bodom on their upcoming tour through North America. Additional support on the trek will come from Septicflesh and Obscura, who will alternate the opening slot each night. Presented by REVOLVER Magazine and Guitar World, the tour will be DEVIN TOWNSEND’s first to promote the new albums and sees him joining forces with one of metal’s most respected acts, Children of Bodom, on their first North American tour since 2009.

Dates for the trek are below.

June 24 Los Angeles, CA House of Blues
June 25 San Francisco   Slim’s
June 26 Portland, OR            Roseland
June 27 Seattle, WA             Showbox at the Market
June 28 Vancouver, BC   Commodore Ballroom

FORBIDDEN: 2nd N. American Headlining Tour Announced

April 12th, 2011

Forbidden 2010

Forbidden 2010

Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN, along with Decibel Magazine and Metal-Sucks.net, are happy to announce the bands second headlining run of North America! Joining them are tech-death thrashers REVOCATION, traditional heavy metal champions WHITE WIZZARD, and Colorado based thrash merchants HAVOK. Guitarist Craig Locicero commented on the bands upcoming trek:

FORBIDDEN is proud to announce our first proper headlining tour in 16 years throughout the North America this Summer! Finally! We will be bringing out REVOCATION, WHITE WIZZARD and HAVOK along for the fun. These bands are all hungry, cool and young guns and they will add to the excitement!

 

Something we witnessed last Winter was the economy crushing many tours. A lot of kids just can’t afford the ticket prices anymore. When we made the jump to the Pantheon Agency a few months ago, we made it clear that we wanted a reduced ticket price and all ages venues. That way all the fans of FORBIDDEN can afford to go and bring their friends of all ages along for a real Thrash experience! Well that is just what we’ve done. Ticket prices will be between $10-$15 ever where we play. Step one is complete!

 

Step two is the actual gigs themselves. We will be starting at the Whiskey in Hollywood on June 9th and then we head North into Canada for an extensive run into the East, South, Mid-West to eventually end the tour in San Diego on July 2nd. These will be raw, intimate and bare boned Thrash Metal shows. Exactly how we started it. How it was meant to be!

 

So tell your friends, grab your kids…whatever it takes. You are ALL invited to join us on this Omega Wave!”

MICHAEL MONROE: Live at Club Tavastia, Helsinki

April 12th, 2011
by Marko Syrjala

23.03 2011

CLUB TAVASTIA, HELSINKI

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Michael Monroe finally released his long awaited studio album SENSORY OVERDRIVE. Despite this, the band spend the whole last year performing across the globe band now started another tour to support its new release. The new album has received excellent reception here in Finland. It was number one in the official album list here and that’s something, I’m not 100% sure about this, but it’s something that the re-united Hanoi Rock’s was never able to reach with its three albums. For sure it wasn’t an easy thing for Michael to decide to quit Hanoi Rocks but the success of this new album does prove that it was after all a right decision

Finnish Death Metal Special: Stench Of Decay Lie In Ruins Neutron Hammer Maveth Swallowed Hooded Me

April 11th, 2011
by Arto Lehtinen

logo dm special.jpg

Back in the late 80s and early 90’s death metal ruled metal in the catacombs of the underground. The Finnish death metal scene was one of kind unique offering tremendous bands from every town around Finland. Every underground death metal maniac still recalls with tears in their eyes when death metal gigs were packed and how demo tapes got traded and underground DIY magazines were informative and of high quality. How about the bands back then; well the list is endless! Let the name dropping start: Demigod, Convulse, Amorphis, Abhorrence, Belial, Mythos, Purtenance, Funebre, Xysma, Disgrace, Mordicus, Purtenance and so on. Many years have passed by since those days. Most of bands have vanished and some of them are more or less activate or some were catapulted to another dimension of success. Does Finnish death metal offer something new, and above all, more than newer bands of the genre? Of course it does, even though the Finnish death metal scene lives and well. Believe or not. The scene is awesome and tremendous as the bands of the present day sound brutal and vicious. The article of the Finnish Death Metal scene gives a half dissection of six great death metal bands. The interviewed members of the following bands are :     

Ville : Maveth

Samu : Swallowed

Tommi : Stench Of Decay

Roni Ä : Lie In Ruins and Neutron Hammer

Roni S : Lie In Ruins

Lasse : Hooded Menace


Let Death Metal reign

News Update from US Power Metal Band Sonic Prophecy

April 10th, 2011
by EvilG

It’s been a while since we have updated our fans on the goings on within Sonic Prophecy and we wanted to take a moment and let everyone know what has been progressing the last several months. Throughout late 2010 and all through the first few months of 2011 we have been working hard recording the new album “A Divine Act of War”.  As a band we decided to make this album an eclectic mix of all that we feel makes our sound distinctly ours, moving forward with bigger, more symphonic overtones. In order to achieve this we sought out the skills of C.J. Lewis. His talent in composing several of the keyboard parts for our new music cannot be understated. His contributions have added mountains of melody and drama to the new album while staying true to the original vision of the music.

This week we finished the bulk of the recording sessions for the album and now it moves on to be mixed. Engineering credits go to Matt Hepworth at Studio Nu, located in Ogden Utah. His support has been crucial and we would highly recommend his services. We have also procured the talents of Valgorth at Hammerblaze Studio for the art and CD layout design. His epic and distinct work is well known throughout the true metal community and we are excited to unveil the artwork soon! Believe us when we say it is awesome!
Although we had hoped to have the album finished and released by now, we feel that the extra time has allowed us to produce our best work and come up with a significant leap forward with our sound. We hope that once you hear it you’ll agree that it was worth the wait! We will update you soon with clips from the new album, show dates, and other exciting news.

As always we appreciate you all more than you know!

 

Prepare for the birth of Symphonic Power Metal from Utah!!
