DORO PESCH, who completed a handful of U.S. tour dates as well as a successful debut appearance in Japan earlier this month, recently unleashed the Fear No Evil – Ultimate Collector’s Edition box set via Germany’s AFM Records. The stunning set includes the Fear No Evil album with different cover art and bonus tracks (“All We Are 2007” and “On My Own”) plus the Herzblut and Celebrate EPs, a gorgeous DORO poster print and sticker, all packed in a hard cover box.
PESCH released Fear No Evil in January 2009. The record went on to become her most successful release in nearly 20 years. Earning the #11 spot on the official German charts, the record finds PESCH returning to her musical roots.

EARACHE RECORDS is proud to announce the worldwide signing of the Canadian cult metal act, WOODS OF YPRES. Formed in 2002, WOODS OF YPRES have earned critical acclaim for their ever-evolving, envelope-pushing mix of blackened doom metal. Most often compared to bands such as AGALLOCH and TYPE O NEGATIVE, WOODS OF YPRES toe a thin line between the catchy, the artistic and the extreme to create an unmistakable signature sound.
With this signing comes controversy. As many may know, WOODS OF YPRES had previously announced that they were disbanding so why would EARACHE sign a defunct act? Truth is, the band never really broke up to begin with. Let frontman, David Gold explain his side of things:
“After 8 long years of pushing forward, recording five albums and going on multiple tours as an independent band, we are very proud to announce that we have finally signed WOODS OF YPRES to Earache Records. To address the rumors (some that we ran with and some that we started ourselves), WOODS OF YPRES never actually broke up/disbanded/quit/ended, at all. Allow me to explain.
We just released the massive W4: The GREEN Album late last year (not even a year ago yet!), toured North America this past summer and then in August, we recorded our fifth album, Woods 5: “You Were the Light”. We’ve always been gluttons for pain and punishment in this band, and we’ve put ourselves through some hellishly busy years while keeping this band alive (not even considering all the side projects the guys and I have done during the same time!). Being the black and ‘true doom’ artists that we are, we simply couldn’t resist the urge to take advantage of the opportunity to experiment with the drama and reaction to the news that we finally, unexpectedly and mysteriously decided to give up after all this time, after all that momentum, after coming this far.
Putting an end to WOODS OF YPRES, after all it’s been through, would be the saddest and most unfair thing we could ever do to this band and our supporters. I also think it was important for us, the band, to imagine and realize how it would feel, if it were true, if we did decide to finally call it quits when things were just starting to happen. Offering the news of our demise was also the most satisfying false sense of temporary satisfaction we could possibly give to our many haters who’ve been hoping that we’d finally quit for years, of whose lost spirits we can now continue to crush with the announcement of our signing to the mighty Earache Records!
So WOODS OF YPRES never broke up, and we are in fact, finally, stronger than ever. However, at the end of August of this year, I did move to Kuwait for work. I am here now, in the desert, working. When I come home (maybe sooner than expected), we will finally have the opportunity for a fresh start for a new era of the band and a redefinition of the WOODS OF YPRES sound! W5 is the end of our “indy” career and also the start of our “pro” career with Earache. The opportunity to write and record W6 in collaboration with Earache is the most exciting opportunity this band has ever had and I can already say that it will be our finest work. In the meantime, we intend to tour, hard, everywhere! Contact your local promoters and tell them to bring us to town! This band will never quit. All the best is still yet to come. On behalf of the band, Evan, Shane and Joel, thank you for all your kind wishes of congra tulations now, and especially for all your support and encouragement throughout these last eight years! More news soon! DG – w/”
WOODS 5 and reissues of their entire catalogue will be out on EARACHE RECORDS in 2011.

The Helsinki, Finland based band recently finished their international sold-out summer tour supporting the release of their most recent album, 7th Symphony. Apocalyptica wrapped up their co-headlining U.S. tour, which included stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and other major U.S. cities. The New York Post declared “you haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen long-haired dudes headbanging while playing classical cellos.” Apocalyptica now returns to continue to support the release of their seventh album 7th Symphony. The current single “End of Me”, featuring guest vocals by Gavin Rossdale of Bush, is a Top 5 smash on the Active Rock Radio chart. 7th Symphony also features stellar guest lineup Brent Smith of Shinedown, Lacey Mosley of Flyleaf and Joe Duplantier of French rock band Gojira and Dave Lombardo of Slayer.
Revolver called 7th Symphony’s instrumentals “their heaviest and most grandiose yet.” Metro Mix proclaimed “…all were in agreement that Apocalyptica put on a stellar performance” at their New York show. Brand X (Los Angeles Times) called their recent Los Angeles Club Nokia performance “…symphonic, emotional, gorgeous…”

“Heaven TV” is the ninth 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.
Music Industry veteran and metal musician Steve “Buckshot” Seabury brings you “Mosh Potatoes – Recipes, Anecdotes & Mayhem From The Heavyweights Of Heavy Metal”.

The book is now available for pre order online and will be available all of book stores, your favorite record stores and many mail order companies.
Seabury has set up a charity for the artist proceeds from each sale of the book to benefit The Meals on Wheels Charity. “This organization is very dear to my heart because it provides for so many great people, people like my own grandma. For the metal community to stand together and help these elderly people experiencing financial stress is a true blessing in my eyes.” The Meals on Wheels Charity provides a great service by delivering over a million meals a day to senior citizens who are experiencing economic hardships or disabilities and cant afford to buy food.
Mosh Potatoes features 147 exciting recipes from legendary icons like Lemmy, Zakk Wylde and Lita Ford to the thrash titans of Pantera, Megadeth, Testament, Overkill and Anthrax to the hair metal bands of Guns & Roses, Dokken, LA Guns, Steel Panther, Twisted Sister to the mayhem of metal including Mudvayne, Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, Hatebreed and Devildriver to death metal pioneers of Napalm Death, Obituary, Death and Sepultura and the book wouldnt be complete without the future of the new school like Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Lazarus AD, Evile and Moth Eater.

On the heels of an incredible video debut, TRIPTYKON is now giving fans another chance to check out the material from their forthcoming EP. ‘Shatter’ is now streaming in it’s entirety at MetalSucks.net – giving fans the chance to hear three new tracks from TOM G WARRIOR alongside two tracks which were recorded live at Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland.

TRIPTYKON just released a video for the EP’s title track, “Shatter,” which was directed by Philipp Hirsch of Film-M in Leipzig, Germany last month. The clip combines the images of occult metal with the somber aesthetics of 1920s-era silent films. Sculpted in the brain of Tom G himself, this video is a raw and haunting look inside the mind of the man who brought us CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER and now TRIPTYKON. Check out the new video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrRi25jZRFY

JOHNNY LOKKE’s Promises and Lies was released worldwide today, October 19th, 2010, on Big Riff Records and is available from www.johnnylokkeband.com, CDBaby.com, and DigStation.com with other retailers to follow soon. On Promises and Lies Johnny Lokke returns with with his third album of tough ‘n melodic heavy metal. Lokke takes his big riffed classic heavy metal approach and injects it with a ballsier sound reminiscent of Dio, Armored Saint, and Judas Priest, as well as more modern acts like Astral Doors, Lions Share, and Tarot.
ANVIL have entered Dave Grohl’s studio in Los Angeles, CA with producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, SLAYER, AIRBOURNE ALICE COOPER) to record their brand new album, Juggernaut Of Justice. A Spring 2011 release on The End Records is expected.
In a 2009 interview with Suite101.com, ANVIL drummer Robb Reiner stated about the group’s forthcoming CD, “It’s going to be the best album we’ve ever done. We’ve invented a new genre; we’ve invented metal-jazz . . . We’ve pioneered something that I believe is going to be revolutionary. I’m a jazz drummer: the world knows that I just happen to be in a metal band. And Lips [guitarist/vocalist Steve Kudlow] listens to a lot of old-time swing jazz these days.” Lips added, “I’ve been getting into Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa, really fast swing. It’s really similar to speed metal, it’s just that it’s done with horns.” Reiner continued, “We play this stuff live right now, and it blows people away beyond anything I’ve ever seen. We’ve innocently created something that’s never been done before.”
For the last thirteen years, Secret Sphere have been successfully building their reputation of power metal heroes. Strongly influenced by such acts as Dream Theater, Savatage and Helloween, this Italian group managed to develop a style of their own, forging together fast aggressive riffs and bold symphonic elements. Now, with the re-issues of two of some of their finest albums – “Scent of Human Desire” (2003) and “Heart & Anger” (2005) – Metal Mind is proud to bring back one of the most talented power metal acts of all times…
Secret Sphere was founded in 1997 by guitarist Aldo Lonobile. After some time the final line-up was complete and, with Andy Buratto (bass), Marco Pastorino (rhythm guitar), Gabrielle Ciaccia (keyboards and piano), Ramon R. Messina (vocals) and Federico Pannazzato (drums) on board, the band recorded their debut album “Mistress of The Shadowlight” (1999). The LP was a local success and presented the band with some interesting opportunities, such as the participation in the Helloween tribute album “Keepers of the Jericho” alongside such artists as Rhapsody and Sonata Arctica. In 2001 Secret Sphere released their second full-length album entitled “A Time Nevercome”, which was promoted by an excessive European tour. In 2003 the band signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Records regarding the release of their third album – “Scent of Human Desire”. Recorded with the help of the acclaimed producer Achim Köhler (Sinner, Primal Fear, Brainstorm), the LP brought the first glimpses of progressive elements, which would later become a permanent element of the group’s style. With such excellent tracks as “1000 Eyes Show”, “Runway Train” and the glam-inspired “Virgin Street 69”, Secret Sphere finally managed to introduce their music to a wider audience, receiving great reviews all around the world. The second LP recorded for Nuclear Blast – “Heart & Anger” – saw the light of day on May 30th, 2005. The album brought an even more progressive sound and more polished compositions (which included parts performed by a full orchestra) and featured such highlights as the emotional opener “Where The Sea Ends” and the stomping “Bad Blood”. The following years brought two more albums by Secret Sphere: “Sweet Blood Theory” from 2008 and their latest opus “Archetype” from 2010.
“The Scent Of Human Desire” and “Heart & Anger” will be available in new digipak editions, each limited to 2000 copies. Both albums include a bonus track. The material was remastered using tube technology, digitally edited on a golden disc. Metal Mind Productions set up the release date for November, 22nd in Europe and January, 11th 2011 in USA (via MVD).

Dorset, England’s pummeling doom trio RAMESSES have been ultra busy this year, and have a lot planned for the coming months.
RAMESSES just recently completed their latest wave of European live dates, selling out most of the concerts on their ten date tour through France and Spain. At press time the band are currently gearing up for a three day attack on British soil this week with support from Norway’s Obliteration for a rampage through Newcastle, Birmingham and ending in London, at the Fenriz-curated Live Evil Festival this Saturday, also appearing alongside Angel Witch, Volcano, Hooded Menace and tons more. These will probably be the last shows the band will play for 2010.
RAMESSES October 2010 UK Tour w/ Obliteration:
10/21/2010 Trillians – Newcastle, UK
10/22/2010 The Asylum – Birmingham, UK
10/23/2010 The Underworld – London, UK @ Live Evil Fest
More tour actions will ensue in 2011 of course; RAMESSES are already confirmed to play the annual Roadburn Festival on April 16th, 2011. A poster for the event can be snagged HERE.
Additionally, Jake and Dinos Chapman — the artists who crafted the controversial “Fucking Hell” art masterpiece used for RAMESSES’ Take The Curse cover art — offered to make a video for the track “Baptism of the Walking Dead” from the album.
While RAMESSES have been working hard all year in support of their latest full-length Take The Curse, released in June of 2010 on Ritual Productions, they’re already preparing their next opus for release. Tentatively set for a March 2011 release, the band have already captured ten new tracks for their upcoming 3rd full-length entitled Possessed by the Rise of Magik, again coming out via Ritual Productions. Some confirmed track titles for the new album include “Safety in Numbness,” “Towers of Silence” and an epic 15-minute title track. More details will be released in the coming weeks on this monster.
Previous to the release of Possessed by the Rise of Magik, the band are planning a two-song 12″ EP entitled Chrome Pineal/Blazoned Fauna. “Chrome Pineal” is a ten minute 1960s style exploration recorded during the Take the Curse sessions, and “Blazoned Fauna” is another brand new track from the Possessed by the Rise of Magik recording sessions.
RAMESSES were spawned in the woodland of Dorset, England. They have been disfiguring the innards of their army of devoted listeners since 2003 when drummer Mark Greening and guitarist Tim Bagshaw hooked up with Adam Richardson (bass + vox). In the intervening years, RAMESSES have ripped an incurable wound in the metal scene with killer live shows around the UK and Europe.
