Now available, the trailer for the new album by Antonello Giliberto “Journey Through My Memory“, which will be released this spring, and for sale on the website of the artist and in the main digital stores. With “Journey Through My Memory”, Antonello Giliberto releases a record full of addictive riffs, guitar solos rich in technique, melody and taste. Finally, the songs are enriched thanks to the brutal drumming by John Macaluso (Ark, Symphony X, James Labrie, TNT, Riot, Malmsteen), full of speed and groove, and to the bestial bass by Dino Fiorenza (Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Slash, Zakk Wylde).

Says ANGRA guitarist Rafael Bittencourt: “Oh boy! My spine is still giving me goosebumps!
“Kiko is in MEGADETH! Wow! What a feeling of pride!
“I have known Kiko for many years and he deserves this great opportunity more than anyone else.
“I usually say that we have a brotherhood’s relationship, so we always wish the best for each other.
“Kiko has been tracking a very serious and talented career.
“I take to say this is also an amazing achievement for Brazilian metal.
“The beginning of this new epic stage is something we all should celebrate. It will be great for ANGRA and for all Brazilian bands, since it draws attention and highlights the talent of Brazilian musicians in general.
“Regarding the works with ANGRA, I believe he will comply with all activities that he has already committed to and he will always be part of our family. He will definitively not be able to turn his back for something he helped build with so much effort. I’m sure we will still make a lot together, either in or out of ANGRA.
“Brother, lots of luck and success to you! ”
KAMELOT have a new song & video OUT, watch it here:
Dave Mustaine announced the new guitarist for Megadeth today and as suspected, it’s Kiko!!
“I first met Kiko around 8 years ago for a cover shoot for Burrn! magazine. I had no idea who he was, other than the fact he was tremendously talented and that the staff from Burrn! held him in high regard. Since then I’ve come to see what a guitar virtuoso he is, and I’m deeply encouraged by his depth and talent. Very few Megadeth alumni have had the same feel and ability as Kiko. As Frank Sinatra says, “the best is yet to come!” -Dave Mustaine”
Korotory – Organized Hypocrisy – Song Stream – https://youtu.be/N_sXsbx3vVs
New York based underground Metal veterans Korotory are excited to announce that they have teamed up with record label upstart Sofa King Vinyl for a record release project as part of the label’s launch, which also coincides with the band’s 20-year anniversary. Sofa King Vinyl is currently hosting a pre-order campaign for the LP along with exclusive and limited bundles via Kickstarter including the opportunity to score a test pressing. If the goal is met, Sofa King Vinyl will press 500 copies of Korotory’s celebrated album ‘God Less America’ on 140 gram audiophile quality vinyl. If Sofa King Vinyl doesn’t hit the goal then nobody pays a dime and the records don’t get pressed.
Korotory is a Thrash/Death/Groove Metal hybrid from Long Island, NY that for the last 20 years has been the underground Metal world’s best kept secret; drawing Influence from the best parts of the scene to craft their signature sound.
Sofa King Vinyl is a brand new label with no investors, and they’d like to keep it that way as they want complete creative control. A Kickstarter campaign appears to make the most sense in order to help kick this label into gear.
PRE-ORDER Now via Kickstarter here – Exclusive Bundles Available!
140g black audiophile quality vinyl
Mastered for vinyl from original 24-bit hi-res mixes
Poly-lined inner sleeve
Projected release date if Kickstarter goal is reached – August 2015

Pentagram, the highly influential American heavy metal/doom act fronted by mastermind, Bobby Liebling, formed in the early 1970s. Through four decades of adversity and triumph, Pentagram has become a legendary international act and has firmly stamped its name in the heavy metal history books.
Although always a cult act with a strong and dedicated worldwide fan base, Pentagram has enjoyed a recent surge in interest due in part to the fly-on-the-wall 2011 documentary, Last Days Here, following the life, trials and tribulations of Bobby Liebling. The film gained international recognition, travelling the worldwide film festival circuit where it won several awards including “Best Music Documentary” at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam.
Stay tuned for more information on Pentagram and All Your Sins, out now on Peaceville.
