DARKEST HOUR has released another new song from their upcoming record. Fitting for today’s national holiday, the song is called “Love as a Weapon.”

Hear it at their official Facebook page by “liking” it here:

Once you like, be sure to click the “listen” tab along the left side bar.

The band recently announced their new record entitled “The Human Romance” to be released on February 22, 2011. This is the bands seventh full length and their debut for new label eOne Music. Renowned SOILWORK guitarist Peter Wichers, along with the band, produced the record himself.

The band has also released the sixth chapter of their behind the scenes studio footage today, see it here:  http://bit.ly/gonuYN
“This time around, the
DARKEST HOUR songs were composed a bit differently than was the case in the past.”
Guitarist and founding member Mike Schleibaum explains, “we
have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last
April. ‘The Eternal Return’ was written during a very dark, bleak time
for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an
in your-face, no-frills aggressive assault. The new material shares in
that aggression and pushes DARKEST HOUR beyond the unknown.”

DARKEST HOUR recently finished their 15 Year Anniversary “Legacy” tour in Europe last week. The next run of dates has them headlining the “ATTICUS METAL TOUR” along side BORN OF OSIRIS.  “Atticus Metal” promises to be one of the most exciting tours for the first half of 2011 and is a must see for all metal fans alike.

Meanwhile PRIMORDIAL have finished the recordings on their seventh studio album, Redemption At The Puritan’s Hand, with producer Chris Fielding (Napalm Death, Electric Wizard) for a April release via Metal Blade Records.

PRIMORDIAL vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga comments on Redemption At The Puritan’s Hand:

“If I had to sum this album up I would say this is the ‘death’ album. Plain and simple. There isn’t exactly a whole concept but many of the themes deal with mortality, how we deal with it. The spiritual structures we place around us to make sense of it. Sex, death, procreation and god. As we get older our relationship to our lives changes, the realization you will not live forever, the grand plan you hoped to uncover never materializes, food for worms and nothing more.

We are animals, beasts and making peace with that beast might be your life’s work but more often than not he is never tamed.

Once a wolf always a wolf. We all seek redemption in one way or another, from lies or from truth. Those of us who are godless or faithless often envy the man of faith for his life seems to have an extra purpose, despite the fact that logic, pragmatism, science and realism should crush any sign of faith, we still persist in lying to ourselves. Perhaps the alternative is too much to bear. So the themes of religion, mortality and death occur over and over again, along with continuing themes of alienation, martyrdom, sacrifice, violence and retribution. Occasionally, very occasionally a chink of light breaks through.

This is our seventh album, you know what to expect, passion, intensity, commitment and sheer bloody mindedness. Don’t expect fantasy or escapism. No remorse, no regret.”

PRIMORDIAL will release their new longplayer, Redemption At The Puritan’s Hand, on April 23rd/26th, 2011 via Metal Blade Records in Europe and April 26th in North America! Stay tuned for track listing, album art, pre-order deals and the first sound samples in the coming weeks!

According to Joe Siegler from Black-Sabbath.com, TIM “RIPPER” OWENS (HAIL!, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) will be singing in place of RONNIE JAMES DIO (BLACK SABBATH, DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, RAINBOW, ELF) on some unreleased Dio material the Dio band is going to be recording.

WHITESNAKE “Forevermore”

About Whitesnake
Formed in 1977, and steered by the legendary David Coverdale, Whitesnake carry a rightful reputation as one of the world’s leading rock n’ roll bands. Coverdale’s blues roots, combined with a feral sense of rockin’ and rollin’, have consistently shaped the ‘Snake’s sound along with Coverdale’s love and appreciation of impeccable musicianship. Whitesnake’s ascent to the very top of the rock n’ roll heap was confirmed with 1987’s self-titled mega-platinum album, which saw two massive Top 10 hits, two #1 singles with “Here I Go Again” and “Is This Love” and a virtual 24-hour domination of MTV around the world. Whitesnake is David Coverdale (vocals), Doug Aldrich (guitars), Reb Beach (guitars), Michael Devin (bass) and Briian Tichy (drums).

Neuronia presents new lineup and international release of “Follow The White Mouse” album!

February 14th, 2011
by EvilG

Polish metallers Neuronia have unveiled their new lineup, reinforced by two acknowledged musicians from Warsaw’s metal scene. The band will soon release an international version of their last album, “Follow The White Mouse”.

In mid-January 2011 Neuronia’s bass player Dominik „Domo” Beśka left the band due to time constraints. He played in Neuronia since 2006 and participated in the recording of the band’s both studio albums, as well as 2007’s “First Blood” EP. Michał “Thor” Pasternak, the band’s drummer, also left to be able to focus fully on his main band – Relikt, and thrash-metal outfit War-Saw.

‘Of course it’s a difficult situation for the band when the whole rhythm section leaves. However, we’re very happy that the split wasn’t acrimonious, there was no bad blood and we’re all still friends,’ says Michał “Misiek” Rogala, founder of the band. ‘We’re very lucky – we’ve found two great musicians in no time, and they have seamlessly found their place in the line-up. We’re even more motivated now – we feel a lot of newly-found energy,’ he adds.

Daniel ‘Beton’ Grotkiewicz has assumed bass duties. He is a seasoned musician, as well as the founder, leader and mainstay of Warsaw’s death metal horde, Mesmerize. He also plays bass in the grindcore band Anticipate and sang lead for Gortal for a time.

Marek “Deviant” Kuczyński, who also plays in the gothic-metal outfit At The Lake as well as for the grindcore band Anus Magulo, became Neuronia’s new drummer. Marek also played in Vecordia and Nailgun.

The new line-up is getting ready for spring time shows. You will have the first opportunity to witness the new Neuronia in action on Feb 25th in ComeIn, Opole next to Jelonek, Baliama and Pigs In Tank. Two days later, the same line-up of bands will appear in MegaClub, Katowice.

As a result of the line-up change, the band had to postpone the plans to record the four-track EP, which was announced in December last year. ‘But we’ll have a small surprise release ready for our fans in the spring,’ announces Maciek “Tektur” Nawrot, Neuronia’s lead singer.

The band’s recent studio album ‘Follow The White Mouse’ is set for international release via Metal Scrap Records (Ukraine). The contract for the release has been signed in mid-January. The release – which features a slightly changed sleeve design and a pit-art engraving on the bottom side of the disc – will have its premiere in February/March 2011.

The latest album is available through iTunes, Amazon, Nokia Ovi Music Store and many more digital stores. You can also buy it directly from the band in digital form and on CD through Neuronia’s BandCamp site (http://www.neuronia.bandcamp.com)

Metal Queen Management is pleased to announce the addition of CONFLICTED to the family of internationally renowned, prog/power metal label Nightmare Records.

CONFLICTED’s much anticipated debut album, entitled NEVER BE TAMED (Nightmare/Sony/Red), will be released internationally, in CD and digital formats, on April 12, 2011.

Formed in Toronto, Canada in 2008, CONFLICTED produce a truly unique, category-defying, genre-expanding modern progressive/power metal sound via a combination of seasoned technical ability, a fervency for volume and a passion for power.

CONFLICTED is fronted by the astounding four-octave vocals of singer JASON ORTON, who consistently delivers pitch-perfect tones rich with both ferocity and emotion. In perfect contrast, neo-classically influenced guitarist MARK OWEN possesses a fiery, virtuosic stranglehold on the fretboard. Rounding out CONFLICTED are the symphonic atmospheres created by RON DE COSTE’s masterful keyboard work, the complimentary melodic undertones of bassist JOHN KOLODZIEJ, and the precision percussive onslaught of Drummer COREY STOLL.

CONFLICTED are best known for delivering stunning must-see live performances. Their rising popularity and reputation culminated in them being named Best Metal Band at the 2010 Toronto Independent Music Awards (TIMAs), as well as earning three prominent awards at ImageFM Radio’s 2010 Annual Independent Music Awards (Male Vocalist of the Year, Guitarist of the Year and Progressive Single of the Year).

CONFLICTED will be touring throughout 2011 in support of NEVER BE TAMED.

Current tour dates include:

Mar. 19 – The Hardball Cafe, 8750 Hwy. 25N, Milton, ON
Apr. 16  – Rockpile Bar and Night Club, 5555 Dundas St. W., Etobicoke, ON – CD Release Party

RAGE Frontman Comments On 70,000 Tons Of Metal Experience

February 14th, 2011
by EvilG

Rage - Strings To A Web

Rage - Strings To A Web

German metal trio RAGE were one of the many bands to successfully blow fans away on the first ever 70,000 Tons Of Metal in January, as dozens of bands and over 2100 fans rocked the Gulf Of Mexico on a massive cruise ship for three days. RAGE tore the place apart with their energetic live act, not only giving fans an incredible live experience, but also having an amazing time themselves. “The 70,000 Tons Of Metal Boat cruise was one of the coolest experiences in Rage’s career,” says RAGE bassist/vocalist Peavy Wagner. “All on board witnessed a making of history in the metal world. We are proud about the fantastic reactions to our live sets! Let’s go do it again.”

Check out footage of the band playing “Highway To Hell” on the 70,000 Tons cruise with special guest Steve Smyth of Forbidden on second guitar and more at this location now.   Peavy Wagner will also be available for interviews to North American writers this coming Thursday, February 17, from 1- 4pm EST. Please get in touch right away to schedule an interview with the RAGE frontman!

+  +  +

Since 1985, German’s RAGE have delivered their style of classic heavy metal with absolute class. Their new album Strings To A Web is a varied release, showcasing the different faces of the band; pure heavy metal thunder, classical and progressive landscapes, and powerful thrash anthems. Recorded at Twilight Hall Studio (Blind Guardian, Saxon) and produced by Victor Smolski and their longtime friend Charlie Bauerfeind (Hammerfall, Helloween and more), Strings To A Web is like a journey through the history of the band, who celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2010. Over the past quarter century, RAGE went through many changes, but always kept to their roots and developed their incomparable style, and there is no doubt that their current lineup is the strongest yet. Peavy Wagner’s voice is the main trademark, along with the guitar wizard Victor Smolski and power drummer André Hilgers, who round out the magical trio.

RAGE continues to be busy touring in Europe, with tours of Spain and Italy confirmed for March and April respectively. Stay up to date on all live actions on the band’s websites and social network sites, and stay tuned for more updates on RAGE throughout the coming months.
