BLACK LABEL SOCIETY TO PLAY AT SWEDEN ROCK 2011

March 5th, 2011
by EvilG

Heavy metal with a Southern groove. That was the concept when former Ozzy Osbourne-guitarist Zakk Wylde formed Black Label Society in 1998, and that’s how it still looks today. To date the massive – in both senses of the word – guitar-hero/frontman and cohorts have released eight studio albums, including such successes as “Mafia” (2005) and last year’s “Order of the Black”. As we all know, American and European metalheads have different preferences, but in this case both sides agree: Black Label Society is one of the finest American metal bands today. Even if Zakk himself has given up beer, he can still count on countless beerdrinkers to give a warm reception to him, his trusted associates Nick Catanese (guitar) and John DeServio (bass), and newly appointed drummer Johnny Kelly (ex-Type O Negative).

Did we mention that the band will play just before Ozzy Osbourne on june 11th?

March 5th, 2011
by EvilG

Psycho Choke is proud to announce the new video “Get Down“. Taken from the album “UNRAVELING CHAOS” released by 7Hard Records 2010. Feat. guest solo from Gus-G (Firewind, Ozzy).

 

 

Louder than hell, aggressive, optimistic and happily violent Psycho Choke deliver a special blend of nerve striking vibes with eastern and western grooves under a soft touch of discrete poetry. With a little help from Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind), Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mork (Nightrage) and Jacob Hansen (Invocator, Anubis Gate) “Unraveling Chaos” is the album that every metal core fan will talk about for months. Play it on high volume and let the waves destroy your eardrums.

 

From Guitarist Gus G: “Psycho Choke is a band from my town and I’ve known them for many years. They always recorded quality music and play intense live shows. I was happy to jam on their new album and I wish them nothing but the best!”

WOODS OF YPRES FRONTMAN DISCUSSES THE WRITING OF ‘WOODS 4: THE GREEN ALBUM’ – PART 1

March 4th, 2011
by EvilG

Canadian blackened doom merchants WOODS OF YPRES are preparing for the worldwide release of their acclaimed album, WOODS 4: THE GREEN ALBUM.

Originally released in late 2009, WOODS 4: THE GREEN ALBUM is due to be reissued by Earache Records on March 14th in Europe and March 22nd in North America.

WOODS OF YPRES founding member and frontman DAVID GOLD discusses the writing process for the album (part 1):

“The writing process for W4: The Green Album began while sitting on my bed, aimlessly writing riffs in my Seoul, South Korea apartment during my year in exile while living and teaching there in 2007-2008.  The previous WOODS OF YPRES band had collapsed, as did all crucial parts of my former life in Toronto, Canada, suddenly in spring 2007.  I fled to Korea to keep myself busy with work and new experiences until I could sort myself out and figure out my next move.  I feared that if I were to slow down, I’d get low and drown.  I knew I had to go far away, fast, and stay there until life started to make sense to me again.

“I quit my Toronto day job of the previous four years on the morning of my 27th birthday that June.  During the following ten days, I packed what was left of myself into a suitcase and the rest into boxes and storage, and by July 1st, Canada Day, I found myself living and working in Seoul where everything was new, the future so completely unknown.  It was actually quite terrifying in the beginning.  Every waking moment was so uncomfortable that day to day living was agonizingly dreadful.  At some point I went numb and became indifferent to everything.  One day at a time, I developed a little more acceptance for the past while learning to live a little more within my new reality of life in Korea.  Once the numbness melted away and I started to feel, think and form some opinions again, I started to write again, too.

“At the beginning of the journey, summer 2007, I no longer had a band, or anything more than a job to go to and a place to sleep.  I was by myself, completely unknown on the other side of the world, 12 hours of time zones away from my former home and anything familiar.  Teaching work kept me challenged and very busy and gave me a sense of purpose, but when not knowing what to do outside of work hours, I retired to my apartment for the night, made myself some dinner, watched the US Army TV channel (the one channel I got in English), played guitar, maybe wrote riffs and maybe scribbled down a few thoughts that eventually became WOODS OF YPRES songs.

“Twelve months of hurt, exploring, longing, thinking, documenting, teaching, sleeping, waking, eating, drinking, walking around the city listening to Nick Cave, Katatonia and The Magnetic Fields on my iPod, venturing out, getting lost, finding my way and drumming for the Seoul, South Korea metal band NECRAMYTH later, plus a well earned, month long reward trip to Finland for metal and more drinking on the way home from Korea and I was back in Canada, wanting to bring WOODS OF YPRES back from the dead, much like I had done with myself.”

Check back soon for part 2.

WOODS OF YPRES are due to kick off a North American tour next week in support of WOODS 4: THE GREEN ALBUM.  Catch the band live at the following shows:

March 10 – Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario @ The Rosie

FORBIDDEN’S STEVE SMYTH: SIGNATURE 6- & 7-STRING BC RICH GUITARS NOW AVAILABLE!

FORBIDDEN guitarist Steve Smyth is pleased to announce the availability of his signature 6- & 7-string BC Rich “Bich” guitar, which debuted two months ago at NAMM 2011.

 

“After nearly 3 years of effort put in, I am happy to announce that my BC Rich signature series guitars have been released.  I chose everything for these guitars, right down to the finish, and I’m very happy to say my wishes have been met!  I have been using the Signature 6 series – this absolute monster – with the mighty FORBIDDEN for the last few years, and I honestly have to say it slays every other guitar I have, straight up!  Solid, consistent tone across all the dynamics I need; the feel is incredible plus it’s really light for having the heavy woods it has.  The Signature 7 series version of the guitar has been released as well. This has the same woods as the 6, but with 81-7 and 707 pickups, Grover tuners, and a Floyd Rose tremolo as well.  I’m loving this thing… it hasn’t left my hands since I got it!  This guitar will see use with my new metal band Firehead (debut in late 2011), as well as featured heavily on the new album and live performances coming this year from The EssenEss Project.  I hope you’ll enjoy these guitars as much as I do.  Check them out!”

 

Specs for the 6-string Bich:

 

• Neck Through Construction
• Mahogany Body
• Maple Neck
• Grover® Rotomatic Tuners
• Ebony Fretboard

• 24 Jumbo Frets

• 25 1/2″ Scale

Book of Historic Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Exodus; Bay Area Metal Photographs to Appear This Fall

March 4th, 2011
by EvilG
Book of Historic Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Exodus Photos Coming This Fall

Book of Historic Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Exodus Photos Coming This Fall 2011

Legendary San Francisco Bay Area metal photographers Brian Lew (Whiplash fanzine) and Harald “O.” Oimoen (D.R.I.) have joined forces to create the large-format hardcover photo collection MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW: Bay Area Bangers and the Birth of Thrash Metal. Coming this fall from Bazillion Points Books, this intense look at early hardcore headbangers features some of the first photos of the “Big Four” and their extended family of thrash metal bands. With hundreds of candid, live, and studio shots, Lew and Oimoen celebrate the unique wild-eyed spirit and atmosphere of the historic S.F. Bay Area heavy metal scene: pinpointing clubs (The Old Waldorf, The Stone, Ruthie’s Inn, The Omni); hangouts (The Record Vault, the infamous Metallica Mansion); and beloved local figures like fearless stage diver Toby Rage, manager Debbie Abono, and the unrivaled metal ringmaster Paul Baloff of Exodus.

 

Among the jaw-dropping moments in heavy metal history on display: Cliff Burton’s first rehearsal with Dave Mustaine-era Metallica; Kerry King of Slayer performing with early Megadeth; Metallica and Slayer’s first Bay Area shows; the first meeting of Slayer and Metallica; original uncropped prints of Possessed’s blood-spattered “Seven Churches” band photo shoot; some of the earliest photos of Vio-lence and Death Angel; Testament (then called Legacy) dressed in religious stage outfits; the crazed front row faces from legendary Ruthie’s Inn; and Metallica’s triumphant takeover of Day on the Green in 1985.

 

At roughly 300 pages, filled with unpublished images and rare flyers, this incredible visual time capsule stems from a friendship that started when Brian Lew and Harald O. first met as camera-wielding teenage metalheads. Both later contributed to Ron Quintana’s infamous Metal Mania fanzine.

 

Says Harald O.: “I am so psyched on getting these photos out there. The camaraderie and great friendships forged between all the bands and the fans was so cool-there literally wasn’t much distinction. Everybody was pals with everyone else, and it was a magical time to be a metalhead living in the Bay Area. People are gonna freak on what what we’re gonna show them. This is a dream come true!”

 

Says Brian Lew: “This will not be a history book, but rather a time machine back to the ‘bonded by blood’ days of the original Bay Area metal scene. Before they played the Bay Area, Slayer wore makeup onstage; after that first Bay Area show they never wore makeup again. This book will show people why.”

 

Murder in the Front Row: Bay Area Bangers and the Birth of Thrash Metal, by Brian Lew and Harald “O.” Oimoen. [ISBN 978-1-935950-03-5] Coming Fall 2011 from Bazillion Points Books, America’s smallest but heaviest book publisher.

HAVOK: In-Studio Video Premiere Via Metal Injection

March 4th, 2011
by EvilG

In anticipation of the release of their upcoming new full-length, Time Is Up, Denver thrashers HAVOK today unveil part I of their in-studio video footage. Brought to you by Metal Injection, the video takes you behind the scenes of the recording process with commentary from the members. Check it out HERE.

 

The follow-up to HAVOK’s fiery Burn debut, Time Is Up, which is already reaping praise from critics, features ten tracks of meticulously crafted thrash metal anthems that transcend far beyond any run-of-the-mill rethash projects. Said Popdose of the offering: “This is easily the best thrash record of any type released since Toxic Holocaust dropped An Overdose of Death on us in 2008.” Added Metal Assault in a 9/10 review: “…Time Is Up will turn out to be one of the thrash releases of the year. A furiously energetic effort, presenting thrash metal exactly the way it should be. Get this album when it comes out and mosh to some Havok!” Rock Hospital called Time Is Up, “… a killer sophomore effort by four dudes who do justice to their musical forefathers. Cliff Burton would smile on this release,” while Metal Review agreed: “Havok’s purest intention is to thrash your face into a circle-pitted-pulp, and more often than not they’re wildly successful.”

 

Time is up will be released in North America on March 29 via Candlelight Records. For pre-order details visit Candlelight USA.

 

HAVOK is currently ravaging the masses on tour with Florida death metallers Malevolent Creation. Remaining tour dates are below:
