ICED EARTH Announce New Vocalist!

Iced Earth's new vocalist, Stu Block from Into Eternity

Iced Earth's new vocalist, Stu Block from Into Eternity

In the wake of vocalist Matt Barlow’s retirement, dozens of demos and resumes flooded ICED EARTH’s management team. But one name kept popping up – INTO ETERNITY vocalist Stu Block, who has been named the new lead singer for Iced Earth.

According to leader Jon Schaffer, Robert Kampf, CEO of Century Media, early on suggested Block, whose band Into Eternity was previously on the CM label. That reminded Schaffer of one night in September, 2008, when Into Eternity opened for Iced Earth.

“Iced Earth was backstage waiting to go on,” said Schaffer. “We heard one of Stu’s incredible wails. I remember turning to Matt and saying, ‘Damn, that dude has serious range.’”

So while Iced Earth’s management team sifted through the growing number of prospective vocalists, Schaffer got in touch with Block.

After several phone conversations with the then-prospective Iced Earth vocalist, Schaffer asked his manager to e-mail Block several key Iced Earth songs, with the vocals stripped. Block went into his studio and recorded himself singing, then sent the files back to the team.

The result landed Block an intense two days at Schaffer’s studio where the two musicians hit it off.

“I felt a lot of chemistry between us, we knocked out a couple of great original pieces of music in no time” said Schaffer. “He’s very good at coming up with catchy melodies, and will help with lyrical duties as well. There’s no doubt Stu has an amazing vocal range and a lot of energy, but he also has the touring experience, which is a big plus for our plans of performing in all corners of the world.”

In addition, Schaffer said Block has what Iced Earth needs in a front man: “stage presence that includes high energy, passion, and focused rage.”

“Stu is charismatic and understands the depth and varying emotions in Iced Earth’s music,” said Schaffer. “So he will embody not only the emotion of our songs, but he will be able to perform them in a dynamic way. I believe fans are in for some incredible records and live shows in the coming years.”

New Iced Earth vocalist Stu Block concurs: “Iced Earth fans are wonderful, wonderful people,” he said. “The music is so passionate. So they’re passionate, and very loyal to the band. I am, too. I’m a huge fan of Iced Earth myself. So I share that same passion, and I will show it on stage. I think the fans are really going to dig it.”

Block continues: “It’s a huge honor to be doing this, to be part of this team,” he said. “It’s a dream come true, for sure.”

Schaffer is totally stoked. “This is a new beginning,” he said. “It’s game-on time. Iced Earth is going to record and tour like it never has before. The band is really amped-up and ready to hit the ground running in November.”

And to prove it, Iced Earth has released the European leg of a world tour that will take the band to countries it has never previously played. All told, the 2011-2012 Iced Earth world tour will be the largest the band has undertaken since its inception.

Check out Iced Earth’s tour schedule here.

NOTE: Retired Iced Earth vocalist Matt Barlow will perform with the band on all summer festival dates. New vocalist Stu Block will take over fromthere, starting with the European leg of Iced Earth’s world tour.
The band’s long-awaited 6-hour, three-concert live DVD Festivals of theWicked is scheduled for release this spring.

Hank Pearl from THE DAILY ROCK (http://www.thedailyrock.com)  interviews Jean-Francois Dagenais, guitarist for Canadian melodic death metal band KATAKLYSM, before the band performs at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago on their “Spread The Venom” tour.

The two discuss how a band that has been around for two decades can just now break Billboard’s Heatseakers chart, the various meanings behind the new “Heaven’s Venom” album, and why a man like Dagenais, who performs with and produces many other acts, keeps coming back to KATAKLYSM no matter what.

Sacred Oath REVOLUTION! Begins Today

by EvilG

Sacred Oath - Revolution

Sacred Oath - Revolution

The Revolution begins

Sacred Oath has released a  digital 45  – “Revolution”  – exclusively through iTunes today March 15th.  The format offers a “B-side” track and so a previously unreleased track “Burn Away (Loki’s Song)” is included in the package.  This is the first commercially available release of a single from the World On Fire album.

“The world really is on fire,” says the band’s primary songwriter and lead singer Rob Thorne.  “Conceptually, we chose to do this album on ‘Dune’ because there are so many parallels with the struggles on our planet here and now, and revolution in this country seems inevitable. It was kind of freaky to see the revolutions here in Wisconsin and also in the Middle East break out just a couple months after the album was released.”

NIGHTWISH In Los Angeles – “Biggest Nightwish show production ever on North American soil and strictly a one-off”

March 15th, 2011
by EvilG
Nightwish - Imaginarium

Nightwish - Imaginarium

NIGHTWISH have announced that the very first show for the Imaginarium World Tour will take place at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA, on Saturday, January 21st, 2012.

 

This will be the biggest Nightwish show production ever on North American soil and strictly a one-off – there will be no US tour until later in 2012. Ticket sales will begin soon.

 

Nightwish singer Anette Olzon recently posted the following update:

 

“Today me, Ewo (Pohjola, Nightwish Manager) and Tuomas (Holopainen, Nightwish leader/keyboardist) decided that its better if I rest the whole month and get in shape so I can do the vocals super good, and have booked my vocal recordings from April 4th instead, in another studio in Finland. This is really good cause no one will be happy if the album doesn’t sound perfect. And we dont have any hurry since the album has plenty of time to get mastered and ready still.

 

So I´ll rest and rest and hopefully soon be able to move a bit more. I have now been lying down for a week and even if I cant do anything it is of course quite boring.

 

Yesterday something happened that might have been good. I lied down and just turned to the right and it “popped” really loud from the ribs and I could feel the bones move. After that I feel I can breathe a bit easier so maybe the bones were “put in their places” and can start to heal now. I really do hope so!”

 

In a recenty interview with Tuomas Holopainen and Solar Films director Stobe Harju, the pair talk about the Imaginarium album and movie of the same name. Check out the YLE video below:

Holed up in the studio for the better part of this spring, Nightwish’s new album is scheduled to be released early in 2012, followed by the movie after an indefinite time. The first single off the album as well as the trailer for the movie should appear well before the end of the 2011.

A recent update from Nightwish reads as follows:

“After about five hundred post-it notes, two hundred written pages, hundreds of reference pictures, five hundred storyboard pictures, millions of bloody tears, mixed feelings of joy, extensive courting, happy coincidences, and more than two and a half year’s of planning, it’s time to report about the progress of the Imaginarium movie.

The pre-production of Imaginarium is already in full swing. Pretty much everything revolves around the script, which is currently being finalized. This is the phase when the dialogue is honed to perfection and dramaturges offer critical feedback of the plot.

Pre-production is also the stage when various artists, led by the director, commence work on the sets, props, costumes, and make-up. Concept art is drawn, and both the director and the director of photography discuss the cinematography and the mode of story-telling with the help of the storyboard.

Unfortunately, pre-production is also a time of rejection, when many original visions have to give way for harsh reality. This is not bad as it seems, however. The story usually crystallizes at this point, and many ideas that originally felt so great reveal themselves to be essentially superfluous. And that’s a good thing.

Pre-production usually lasts several weeks, and coordinating the shooting schedule and especially building the sets, sewing the costumes and preparing the SFX can take months. So writing this a week from now would still be topical.

Each time we’ve listened to the Imaginarium demo, it has not failed to cause satisfied laughter, emotion-filled tears, or strong shivers in us. We hope that when the time comes, you’ll share those same feelings when watching Imaginarium on the silver screen or from the comfort of your sofa.

We bid you welcome to follow these waypoints on the road to Imaginarium. Enter 2012.”

Nightwish recently posted video footage and photos from their recent orchestral sessions with Pip Williams held at Angel Studios in London, UK from February 14th-20th. Check it out the video on YouTube below:

OZZY OSBOURNE Documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne To Debut At Tribeca Festival

OZZY OSBOURNE Documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne

OZZY OSBOURNE Documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne

Rick Warner from Bloomberg reports that the OZZY OSBOURNE documentary, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, will be shown at the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from April 20th to May 1st in New York.

God Bless Ozzy Osbourne (originally given the MUCH BETTER title ‘Wreckage Of My Past: The Story Of Ozzy Osbourne’), directed by Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli, recounts the turbulent career of the heavy metal musician turned reality-show star. The 91 minute film is also the first release from his son Jack Osbourne’s Jacko Productions.

Ozzy Osbourne’s four decade track record as a culturally relevant artist is unprecedented, but his personal struggles have been shrouded in secrecy, until now. Featuring never before seen footage uncovered from the archives and interviews with PAUL McCARTNEY, TOMMY LEE and others, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne is the first documentary to take viewers inside the complex mind of rock’s great icon. Emerging from a working class family in war torn England, Osbourne and his neighborhood friends formed BLACK SABBATH and invented heavy metal. Plagued by self doubt, Osbourne the solo superstar went on a binge that lasted 40 years. God Bless Ozzy Osbourne will relive the highs of his triumphs as well as his journey to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment.

Filming for God Bless Ozzy Osbourne began in January 2008. The documentary will reportedly include additional interviews with all the principal members of Black Sabbath, the various incarnations of Ozzy’s solo band, family and friends.

Jack Osbourne recently completed God Bless Ozzy Osbourne and talks about it with Artisan News below:
