The band, who received praise from Guitar World for their “tightly-woven guitar interplay, irregular time signatures and tasteful licks,” has toured with the likes of PROTEST THE HERO, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, CYNIC, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and were handpicked by DREAM THEATER to participate in the 2009 installment of their famed “Progressive Nation” festival tour. SCALE THE SUMMIT has also been featured prominently in Guitar Player magazine, and has tracks available for the Rock Band video game through the Rock Band Network.

Meliah Rage to Record & Tour with Paul Souza; Band to play Headbangers Open Air Festival 2011 in Germany

January 26th, 2011
by EvilG

Meliah Rage has announced that singer Paul Souza has returned to record a new full length CD as well as the band’s first ever cover song, a version of Alice Cooper’s Halo of Flies. The song will be a bonus track on the soon to be re-released remix of 2004’s “Barley Human.” The band will then begin recording its next record with Souza in February and March, slated to be called Dead to the World.

The band’s original singer Mike Munro has become very dedicated to his church and recently spent time volunteering in Haiti—Munro felt these and other missions of goodwill would not allow him the flexibility of schedule to tour with Meliah Rage.

Souza recorded two records with Meliah Rage—Barely Human as well as 2006’s The Deep and Dreamless Sleep. The remix will officially be called Barely Human Remix. “We feel very fortunate that we have the ability to work with Paul, complete this CD and play some shows,” explained Meliah Rage founder Anthony Nichols. Souza was the singer when the band toured with Metal Church across the U.S. in 2007.

A video for Halo of Flies was shot last month and will be released in mid February. Dead to the World is slated for release in July just before the band heads for Germany to play The Headbangers Open Air Festival. The track list for the new record is:

Skin And Bones

Up In Flames

Absolute Obedience

Hurts Like Hell

Time Won’t Let Me Breathe

Blood On The Stage


Static Station

Black Moon Sk

VINTERSORG – To release of their eighth album, Jordpuls (translated: Earth’s Pulse”) on March 25th through Napalm Records

January 26th, 2011
by EvilG

Vintersorg - Jordpuls

“The unrelenting visionary allows this particular album to glimpse back at the past. The result is an imposing symbiosis of traditional and modern elements taken from the Swedes’ characteristic sound cosmos. Folk metal anthems meet icy black metal passages and Nordic melodies. The mix delivers multifaceted and memorable songs that carry the mastermind’s unique signature.

The album is completely sung in Swedish and its lyrics borrow from Vintersorg’s past themes: Revolving around man and nature, unique phenomena in the wild, and philosophical observations. Vintersorg’s unmistakable and powerful vocals — from clean to extreme — reign over each track with resounding force, while his production prowess gives the songs a crystal-clear and potent sound. Jordpuls impressively combines tradition with modernism, while showcasing the best of the Swedish visionary.”

The Jordpuls tracklist is as follows:

‘Världsalltets Fanfar’

‘Klippor Och Skär’

‘Till Dånet Av Forsar Och Fall’

‘Mörk Nebulosa’


‘Skogen Sover’



‘Eld Och Lågor’

HEAVENWOOD – ‘Goddess Presiding Over Solitude’ / Another New Song Streaming Online / New session drummer announced

January 25th, 2011
by EvilG

After “ Morning Glory Clouds (In Manus Tuas Domine) “, ” Goddess Presiding Over Solitude “, is the new song from Portuguese Metallers  HEAVENWOOD, which is available for streaming on the band’s Myspace Page Player. The track comes off the group’s fourth album, ” Abyss Masterpiece “, which will be released worldwide via Listenable Records on March the 14th, 2011.

Concerning ‘ Goddess Presiding Over Solitude ‘, HEAVENWOOD’s lead guitarist and melodic singer Ricardo Dias said, ” ‘ Goddess Presiding Over Solitude ‘ contains more heavier and pompous sounding stuff than ever done before by HEAVENWOOD. This song grabs the listener by the throat with some of the most intense riffs of the album and is built in emotional intensity as the lyric concept is inspired on a poem adapted to English from our very first Portuguese female poet D. Leonor also known as Marquesa de Alorna. “

Meanwhile, HEAVENWOOD have announced the addition of drummer Marcelo Aires ( OBLIQUE RAIN ) to the group’s ranks as new session drummer which is considered by the band ‘ as a very technical and competent young musician ‘.

“ Abyss Masterpiece “ is now available for pre-order (for the special price of € 10,00) at Listenable Records website at this location.

Crashdïet’s debut “Rest in Sleaze” (2005) put the New Wave of Sleaze on the Swedish media-map. Some time later tragedy struck when vocalist Dave Lepard committed suicide. And his replacement Olliver Twisted turned out to be wrong for the band and exited following the second album “The Unattractive Revolution” (2007). However, Crashdïet refused to give up. They found sensational front man Simon Cruz and released last year’s “Generation Wild” – a knock-out comeback and a big success on the band’s home turf. Crashdïet will now return to SRF with renewed vigor, as one of Sweden’s hottest bands once more.
