DECAPITATED ISSUE FINAL STUDIO REPORT

DECAPITATED

DECAPITATED

Technical death metal band DECAPITATED have issued the final report from Radio Gdańsk Studio in Poland regarding the recording for their Nuclear Blast debut and follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis:

“The session is over!  We are 100% happy with what we have created.  The final effect is mind-blowing and we ourselves are surprised with the outcome of a two-month recording session and a six-month period of polishing the material.  Worth mentioning is that some of the riffs were done in the days of the prior DECAPITATED. People have changed, but the spirit has remained untouched and despite a few innovations, it is still the DECAPITATED you all know.

“As we had mentioned before, we have been consistently striving to get the ‘true,’ organic and natural sound.  The sum of all ingredients has resulted in a staggering power and a crazy adrenaline shot.  Moreover, to our surprise, something else has emerged… insanity, madness, inexplicable power.  This is the factor that most of [the] top ‘trite’ productions lack.  Over the whole music hovers some idea, some concept that infects the listeners like a disease.  This is what the music is always all about and the reason why you return to some records years after years – it’s the emotions… We are damn proud, fulfilled, self-confident and are looking forward to confronting the new material live.  All the best!”

DECAPITATED’s new album has produced by Wacek Kiełtyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski.  Drums were recorded with Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED), who also handled mixing duties.  The band will be self-releasing the new album in their native Poland.

DECAPITATED’s line-up includes: Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka on guitar, Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Thorns Of Ivy, Tone Intimacy) on drums, Rafał Piotrowski (Ketha, Forgotten Souls) on lead vocals, and Filip “Heinrich” Hałucha (Vesenia, Rootwater, Unsun, Masachist) on bass.

LAST CHANCE TO REASON Post Video Tour Blog

April 5th, 2011
by EvilG

Maine’s progressive-metal masters, LAST CHANCE TO REASON, have posted a video blog documenting their dates last month with Atheist. The band previously posted footage from their Canadian dates, and are currently out with Wretched and Sons of Aurelius. The run will culminate with an appearance at New England Metal Fest on April 16th. Check out the video HERE. The band’s Prosthetic debut, “Level 2,” hits the streets, next Tuesday, April 12th in North America. Pre-order for the CD, on its own, or with an exclusive shirt, is available at PROSTHETIC’s official webstore: http://store.prostheticrecords.com/index.php/bands/last-chance-to-reason .

@ w/ Wretched, Sons of Aurelius

 

LAST CHANCE TO REASON teamed up with producer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me) to create a modern take on the classic progressive concept album. Drawing influence from the 70’s prog of King Crimson and Yes, composers Steve Reich and Schoenberg as well as prog-metal masters Opeth, Dream Theater and Cynic, LCTR’s “Level 2” takes the band in awe-inspiring new directions.

 

Set in a Tron-like virtual world, the album’s concept revolves around the relationship between man and technology, our move from physical reality to virtual spaces and what these changes mean to our lives and our art. The lyrics are expressed from the point of view of an artificial intelligence facing the violent reality of a videogame world.

Since forming in 2005, LAST CHANCE TO REASON has shared the stage with Born of Osiris, Genghis Tron, Periphery, The Red Chord, Daath, Through The Eyes Of The Dead, Unearth and many more.

“Scott Columbus R.I.P my brother. I’m gonna miss you!”

Manowar issued a statement on their Facebook page that reads:

“With great sorrow we announce the passing of our brother Scott Columbus. A rare talent, equally a rare individual, a father, a friend and a brother of metal. All of the great moments we spent together are burnished in our hearts and memories forever. We know he is in a good place and at peace. He will never be forgotten.

Your family and brothers,

TESTAMENT – Vocalist Chuck Billy

April 5th, 2011
by Metal Rules

Testament_Logo.jpg

Vocalist Chuck Billy

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

On/offstage pictures by Terhi Pihlaja

Thanks to Silke from Tough Enough Promotion for setting up the interview and Laura Thiessen for the transcription  

Chuck1.jpg

Testament has undergone quite an eventful history (both in good and bad) within all those 24 years they have existed under the Testament name. The band´s existence was seriously at stake in early 2002 when the band´s vocalist Chuck Billy was diagnosed with a rare kind of cancer. Luckily, after undergoing numerous treatments, he finally managed to fully recover.

THE FORMATION OF DAMNATION, Testament´s highly acclaimed comeback album in 11 years, came out in 2008 – and since then the band has spent long periods on tours of which taking a part of Megadeth´s "Rust in Peace 20th Anniversary Tour" around the U.S.A. in March 2009 together with Exodus, was undoubtedly one of the highlights for the Testament team.

Testament has also become a regular visitor for the Finnish metal fans over the recent years; the band has visited Finland for the last 4 years in a row, playing at some of the precious Finnish summer (metal) festivals. This year, they made their 2nd appearance at Tuska festival where they played in 2005 for the 1st time. Everyone who has seen Testament playing live within the last 2 years since they released their strong comeback record THE FORMATION OF DAMNATION in 2008 (which was also chosen as "The Best Metal Album of 2008" by the Metal-Rules.com staff), can subscribe the fact the live chemistry between each band member in Testament, is on a phenomenal level; so well they have welded together as a band over the years.

Chuck Billy talked to Metal-Rules.com again about some of the most current Testament-related things – like including naturally band´s hard touring in general, a slow song writing process for their follow-up album to T.F.O.D., etc. – and the 2nd album from Dublin Death Patrol, kind of "all-star jam band", was talked about a little bit, too.

 

(NOTE: This interview was done on June 7th 2010)
