Revolver Magazine To Premiere New GWAR Song “KZ Necromancer” Today

November 5th, 2010
by EvilG

NEW ALBUM “BLOODY PIT OF HORROR” IN STORES NOVEMBER 9th ON METAL BLADE RECORDS

Only six days remain until GWAR unleashes their new album “Bloody Pit of Horror” to the masses. Your Lords and Masters have deemed it necessary to let the human scum hear another track before the album is released, so they have allowed Revolver Magazine to premiere a new track from “Bloody Pit of Horror”. Starting today you can be one of the first to hear the blistering track “KZ Necromancer” at http://www.revolvermag.com.

When reached for comment GWAR lead singer Oderus Urungus had the following to say about the song “KZ Necromancer” and allowing Revolver Magazine to premiere it.

“This is it, the sickest and my personal favorite song on the album…in fact this masterpiece of macabre metal about the sickening connection between Cthulu and the Nazi Death-Camp Doctors is maybe the creepiest GWAR song ever! From the deathly depths of the endless sea comes the KZ NECROMANCER.”

Last week GWAR took to the stage on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on NBC. The band performed their new single “Zombies, March”. Check out the performance for yourself at: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/

Fangoria.com premiered the brand new video from Intergalactic Shock Rockers GWAR. The video is for the song “Zombies, March!” which comes off of GWAR’s new album “Bloody Pit of Horror” which is slated for a November 9th release on Metal Blade Records. The video was shot on location at The National in Richmond, VA by acclaimed Fangoria Director Dave McKendry. Check out the video at FANGORIA.com.

GWAR’s latest masterpiece “Bloody Pit of Horror” will be in stores on November 9th, but you can pre-order your copy today from the official GWAR page on the Metal Blade Records website at: http://www.metalblade.com/gwar. The landing page includes all current tour dates, GWAR footage from BOTH Gwar.tv and MetalBlade.tv, and pre-orders for “Bloody Pit of Horror” on CD, a GWAR t-shirt, or the ultimate “Bloody Pit” package that includes the CD, the GWAR t-shirt, and a 12×12 autographed cover print!

Rhapsody of Fire, Mustasch, Walter Trout and Groundhogs to Sweden Rock 2011!

November 5th, 2010
by EvilG

Finally it’s time for RHAPSODY OF FIRE to play Sweden Rock. With “The Cold Embrace of Fear” the band have arrived at their ninth full-length album, and in 2011 they make their highly anticipated return to the live scene. Including SRF, like so many of you have been yearning for so long.

Machistic rock, based on fat riffs, contagious choruses and a lethal groove is their simple but effective recipe for success.  MUSTASCH will be back at the festival next summer.
Next artist has developed his very own style as a blues- and rock guitarist, examplified by his latest and 20th (!) solo record “Common Ground”. We welcome WALTER TROUT to Sweden Rock 2011.
Last, but not least we proudly present legendary GROUNDHOGS with guitarist Tony McPhee up front!.

EXUMER CONFIRMED TO HEADLINE MEXICAN THRASH METAL FESTIVAL

November 4th, 2010
by EvilG
"Thrash or Die",  festival in Tijuana/Mexico on December 17, 2010.

"Thrash or Die", festival in Tijuana/Mexico on December 17, 2010.

German thrashers EXUMER have been confirmed to headline the “Thrash or Die”,  festival in Tijuana/Mexico on December 17, 2010.

This appearance marks the band’s first live performance in Mexico to date and EXUMER’s final live show for 2010.

The two main supports in the festival’s line-up are Californian thrashers FULED BY FIRE and BONDED BY BLOOD, who have also supported EXUMER

at last year’s Thrasho de Mayo festival.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “It is a great honor for us finally play in Mexico, especially this year which is our 25th anniversary. We know that we have many Mexican fans and that was quite evident when we played at the Thrasho de Mayo festival last year in L.A. I am quiet convinced that we will have a similar reception in Tijuana and we are very much looking forward to meet our Mexican fans. We are going to take a brief break from playing after this show in order to record our new album and then return to the stage with a completely new live-set, late spring/early summer 2011.”

FORBIDDEN: Comment on First Tour in 15 Years

November 3rd, 2010
by EvilG
Forbidden 2010

Forbidden 2010

Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN are set to embark on their first tour in 15 years, this time as direct support to Overkill! Immediately proceeding the trek the band will continue on their own headlining tour with Evile, Gamma Bomb, and Bonded By Blood.

“It’s been 15 years since FORBIDDEN has actually toured in North America,“ commented an enthusiastic Craig Locicero. “That blows my fucking mind to say it! The funny thing is that even when we did tour here, we never properly did it. It was always a very short cycle with little or no support from the labels. Well, times have changed and so has FORBIDDEN’s situation. With Nuclear Blast having our backs and properly promoting and supporting Omega Wave,  I feel a sense of hope for this band that we have never felt before. Strange feeling, really. But we will take it.

Our goal is to get better every night and eventually become the live band that we never got to be. That takes dedication and a lot of hard work. We’re digging in commiting to just that.

We hope our fans will appreciate us as much as we appreciate them. See you all on the road soon!“

ROB HALFORD – My Favorite BLACK SABBATH Album Is…

November 3rd, 2010
by EvilG
Rob Halford

Rob Halford

JUDAS PRIEST singer ROB HALFORD spoke with Steve Newton from Straight.com recently about his upcoming dates opening for BLACK SABBATH singer OZZY OSBOURNE. When asked what his fave Black Sabbath album was, the Metal God chose the band’s scary self-titled debut from 1970.

“It took 24 hours to make,” he says, “believe it or not, but the sound is absolutely mindblowing. If you just listen to the sound, how they were able to do that work in such a short space of time is extraordinary.

“I think a lot of musicians agree that generally your first record is very, very important,” he adds, “because you’re really coming from a very pure, new, uncluttered source. You’ve got nothing to prove because you’ve proved nothing yet; you haven’t really got a massive fanbase, so you’re searching to build that. Your record company’s not interfering with your music as they tend to do when you become successful—same with managers, agents, promoters. You’re really coming into your existence at a different level.

“If you look back at the history of your favourite band, generally the first couple are the ones that really kind of grab you. So that’s why I feel that first Sabbath album for me—much like Sad Wings of Destiny for Judas Priest—is a very important release.”

Halford has performed as the vocalist for Black Sabbath at three shows. He replaced Ronnie James Dio for two nights in November 1992, when Dio elected not to open a show for Ozzy Osbourne. Halford also replaced Osbourne in Black Sabbath on August 25, 2004 (his 53rd birthday) at an Ozzfest show in Camden, New Jersey, since Osbourne could not perform due to bronchitis.

DEMONIC RESURRECTION EXTENDS ‘THE UNRELENTING GUITAR COVER CONTEST’

November 3rd, 2010
by EvilG

On 11th October Indian Metallers Demonic Resurrection announced ‘The Unrelenting Guitar Cover Contest’ inviting fans to upload a guitar cover of the song ‘The Unrelenting Surge Of Vengeance’ from the album ‘The Return To Darkness’ which was released on Demonstealer Records in India and Candlelight Records Worldwide. After many requests from fans the band has extended and expanded the contest.

The cover contest required guitar players to record a video of them covering of the song and upload it on youtube. The prize was a bag of signed Demonic Resurrection goodies and a kickass ESP Guitar T-Shirt. However the band has upped the prize to an additional 1500 INR gift voucher from Furtados Music who are the biggest importers for musical instruments in India as well as have a chain of retail stores for instruments.

The band has also extended the contest to vocalists, bass players and drummers. Backing tracks for all instruments have been uploaded to their reverbnation page (www.reverbnation.com/demonicresurrection) for fans to download and use for their entries.

All contest details are posted online on the bands Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/notes/demonic-resurrection/the-unrelenting-cover-contest-extended-version-20/449582824810

“The response to the contest has been over whelming, we thought this would primarily be for our Indian fans but we got entries from the USA and even from Nepal. We also had a lot of vocalists and bassists etc who also wanted to cover the song so we decided to expand it and have it for them as well. We’ve got some good versions from the guitar players so far and we can’t wait to see what the vocalists, drummers and bassists come up with.” – Demonstealer (Vocals/Guitars)

ABYSMAL DAWN: Unveil Album Title / Release Date

November 3rd, 2010
by EvilG

Los Angeles, CA’s ABYSMAL DAWN has announced the title of their forthcoming album as Leveling The Plane of Existence. Leveling The Plane of Existence, the follow-up 2008’s Programmed To Consume, has been set for a February 1st North American release date (February 7th – UK, February 11th – Germany, Benelux, February 14th – rest of EU). Additional album details including album art and track listing will be posted shortly.

ABYSMAL DAWN began recording Leveling The Plane of Existence in May 2010. The drums were recorded at Trench Studios in Corona, CA with John Haddad (PHOBIA, INTRONAUT, HIRAX) with the rest of the instrumentation being produced and recorded by Mike Bear (ARTISAN, ex-PROTOTYPE) at Artisan Road Studios in Encino, CA. Leveling The Plane of Existence is being mixed and mastered by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOATWHORE, HATE ETERNAL) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL.

ABYSMAL DAWN guitarist/vocalist Charles Elliott recently commented on the album; “After a series of set backs, illness, and going through a world of shit in our personal lives, we had no choice but to make this record our revenge and the defining moment for ABYSMAL DAWN. We’ve had the finished mixes for about a week now and everyone that has heard it has been just blown away. We can already tell that this will be the record that the band will become known for. It’s a very varied, extreme, technical, and melodic record and I can promise you that no one will be disappointed.”

ABYSMAL DAWN is available for interviews / studio reports upon request.  To speak with the band, simply contact Betsey Cichoracki at Relapse Records via any of the means listed at the bottom of this message.  Updated ABYSMAL DAWN news and tour information will be made available at the Relapse Records website: www.RELAPSE.com and the ABYSMAL DAWN MySpace: www.MySpace.com/AbysmalDawn.
