THUNDERSTONE – Line-up Decision Forthcoming

January 10th, 2014
by EvilG

Thunderstoners! We’re one step closer to solving the mystery of the THUNDERSTONE line-up!

But first: We want to thank everyone who submitted their auditions to us. We can honestly say that it would have been an honour to work with any of you. Keep up the good work and stay metal!

Second: We do apologise for taking much longer than we anticipated. If you listened to all the submissions carefully—like we did, dozens of times—you’ll know how difficult the choice was.

Yet, a choice has been made. We are proud to announce that we have asked three people to come and jam with us live so that we can make the final decision. We want to find a person who is not only a great drummer but also a filthy drunk bastard—erm, nice person—like the rest of us. The three people are, in alphabetical order: TONI PAANANEN, ATTE PALOKANGAS, and TUOMAS VUORIO.

Congrats to the three and thank you all for your patience. The live auditions will be held at the end of the month and we hope to have a decision some time in the beginning of February. STAY TUNED AND SPREAD THE WORD!

Nino, Pasi, Titus & Jukka

SLOUGH FEG launch title track and pre-orders for ‘Digital Resistance’!

January 9th, 2014
by EvilG

Slough Feg have launched the title track from their brand new album, “Digital Resistance.” The record was recorded with Justin Weis (who produced the album with vocalist/guitarist Mike Scalzi) at Trakworx in South San Francisco from January-October 2013 and marks the band’s first new studio album since 2010’s “The Animal Spirits.” When asked if the new album was a concept album, singer and vocalist Mike Scalzi explained that “Digital Resistance” is a concept album in the sense that The Beatles Sgt. Pepper is a concept album. “It has somewhat of a consistent lyrical theme that runs through several of the songs, but not every song— it is not a concept album in the sense that our “Traveller” album is.” Listen now and pre-order your copy at metalblade.com/sloughfeg.

THE HAUNTED to release ‘Eye Of The Storm’ single; set to appear on 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise

January 9th, 2014
by EvilG

the_haunted_logo_1.jpgSwedish metal pioneers THE HAUNTED will soon debut new music by releasing a 3-track single, entitled Eye Of The Storm. Due out January 20th in Europe and January 21st in North America via Century Media Records, Eye Of The Storm will be available as a limited edition 7″ and as a digital single, featuring the new songs “Eye Of The Storm”, “Infiltrator” and “My Enemy”. Fans can pre-order the 7″ on black vinyl (limited to 500 copies worldwide) or white vinyl (USA exclusive; limited to 200 copies) now at CM Distro: http://www.cmdistro.com/Search/the_haunted_eye_of_the_storm

Eye Of The Storm marks THE HAUNTED’s recording debut of the band’s revamped line-up, which includes founding members Jensen (Guitars) and Jonas Björler (Bass), returning members Marco Aro (Vocals) and Adrian Erlandsson (Drums), as well as new member Ola Englund (Guitars).

THE HAUNTED’s Jensen comments: There aren’t superlatives enough to describe how much the band has longed for these three songs to be released. We are sure fans have been anxious to know what the band sounds like today after all the turmoil and old members leaving and new members joining. We feel that these three songs represent the band perfectly. We are currently working on the new album, an album that will be filled to the brim with what we know to be ‘THE HAUNTED’. We’ll start doing gigs this spring and we’ll do festivals all over the place this summer. Get in touch with the festivals you visit (and behave like an animal at) and tell them to get us on the bill! THE HAUNTED is back. Play it loud. No. Louder.” Read the rest of this entry »

SONATA ARCTICA album “Pariah’s Child” will be released On March, 28th; Cover Art Revealed

January 9th, 2014
by EvilG
SONATA ARCTICA "Pariah's Child"

SONATA ARCTICA “Pariah’s Child”

On March, 28th the new SONATA ARCTICA album “Pariah’s Child” will be released. It is the band’s eighth studio album and the follow up to their successful “Stones Grow Her Name”.

Today the beautiful cover artwork for “Pariah’s Child” will be released. Vocalist Tony Kakko explains he thoughts behind the album title and the artwork like this:
“As always it’s pretty hard coming up with a name for the new baby. I tried to approach it from many angles; how this is our 8th album and how easy it would be to abuse that fact. All the symbolism of figure eight, eternity and so on. But that just did not feel right as it’s been done so many times. Then I started to think how we’d in ways abandoned our “totem animal”, the wolf and all what comes with the territory. As the music on the album is bowing more towards the “old” Sonata, meaning more power metal style elements and wolves in many of the songs in one form or another, it was clear we need a wolf on the cover. An abandoned wolf. A pariah. Or Pariah’s child, actually. The new generation to bring the old logo back.”

Submissions Now Open! Wacken Metal Battle Canada Returns! ‘One Band To Rule Them All’

January 8th, 2014
by EvilG

Submissions Now Open! Wacken Metal Battle Canada Returns! ‘One Band To Rule Them All’

Last year’s first ever Wacken Metal Battle Canada was witnessed to Toronto, ON’s epic power/death metal band Crimson Shadows not only winning the 2013 Canadian final but conquering the international final in Wacken, Germany where they performed in front of thousands unknown to their behemoth sound of metal. (Video of that champion set can be viewed here.)

With that great success and triumph for Canadian metal, Wacken Metal Battle Canada will be expanding across the country in 2014.

“We’re very pleased to announce that Metal Battle has been expanded to include Western Canada. Battles will happen in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver and we expect some quality submissions from those major cities to join Toronto and Montreal. Given the interest we received last year from the West, this expansion was inevitable. We’ve been working hard to overcome the geographical challenges – the result will be a bigger and better competition.” comments Wacken Metal Battle Canada organizer JJ Tartaglia.
