Mario Maglieri Presents ‘A Benefit for Breast Cancer Survivor Carolyne Williams’ at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, CA on January 24th

January 21st, 2011
by EvilG

Camp Freddy Feat. Matt Sorum, Billy Morrison, and Dave Navarro – Hosted by Mark McGrath

Legendary Whisky A Go Go, Roxy and Rainbow Bar & Grill founder and recovering cancer survivor Mario Maglieri is pleased to present an amazing benefit event to create awareness and raise positive vibes in celebration of breast cancer survivor Carolyne Williams.

Carolyne Williams is a 27-year-old breast cancer warrior and advocate. After months of being told that her cancer was just a cyst or an infection, Carolyne discovered the worst: that she was diagnosed with malignant Cystosarcoma Phyllodes while having no health insurance from her part-time job. Cystosarcoma Phyllodes is a sarcoma, a very rare type of breast cancer that accounts for less than 1% of breast cancer diagnosis. Phyllodes currently has no research or support for survivors from the bigger Breast Cancer Foundations, because of its rarity. Phyllodes is made of connective tissue and blood, that forms in the breast that does not respond to chemo or radiation. Sadly, many cases of breast cancer are currently being found in younger girls/women in their teens, 20’s and 30’s, and in many cases they are being misdiagnosed, as Carolyne was. There needs to be more awareness to this growing and sadly silent epidemic.

This benefit is to help raise awareness and spread hope in the darkness of cancer and its effects on families and friends of the infected. The benefit hopes to raise funds in order to help Carolyne with her disease. This unprecedented and special event will include appearances by Camp Freddy featuring Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver), Billy Morrison (Billy Idol/The Cult), Dave Navarro (Janes Addiction/Red Hot Chili Peppers), and is hosted by Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath. Other monumental yet-to-be-named guests will be making appearances, so make sure to head out and support an incredible cause and witness amazing guest showings. The event will take place this Monday, January 24th at the Whiskey A Go Go in West Hollywood, CA. Performing at the event will be Head Cat featuring Lemmy Kilmiste of Motorhead, and Darling Stilettos.

For more information and tickets call M Productions at 310-360-1110.

Black Metallers WATAIN Win Swedish Grammis Award For Best ‘Hard Rock’ Band Frontman Comments: “…the Devil won again!”

January 20th, 2011
by EvilG

On Monday, January 17, Swedish black metal overlords WATAIN took home the “Best Hard Rock” award for their Lawless Darkness full-length at Sweden’s annual Grammis ceremony (the Swedish equivalent to the U.S. Grammy Awards).

Comments frontman Erik Danielsson: “I always pictured the criteria for entering the Grammy awards to be those of mainstream music in general; conformity, insipidity and commercial potential. In other words, I was quite surprised when we even got nominated. But considering all the blood, sweat and tears we have put into this, our life’s mission, during the past 13 years, it is by all means an award well deserved. And no matter what the parameters were by which the jury made their decision, the Devil won again.”

“Even if this music genre will always be one with adversity and wild hearted insanity as it’s very roots,” he continues, “the artistic value must be acknowledged not only on an underground level but in any cultural circumstance, high or low. Acknowledged I say, not necessarily appreciated. And in a country like Sweden it is about fucking time, for here it has been neglected and stupefied by the mass media for years, while legends such as Dissection and Bathory have been writing and releasing some of the most monumental albums in music history. The Grammy that we have won with WATAIN is a step towards rectification in that matter, and a sign that the artistry and infernal creativity that permeates WATAIN and this genre is being taken seriously. For that we are proud and delighted in accepting the award. As for it’s market-value or importance in a “music industry context,” we sincerely could not care less.”  

Lawless Darkness was released via Season Of Mist on June 7, recorded at Necromorbus Studio (Deathspell Omega, Funeral Mist, Ondskapt et al) in Alvik, Sweden and features cover art by Zbigniew M. Bielak.

In related news, WATAIN was also nominated in the P3 Gold Awards to be held this Saturday in the “rock/metal” category as well as the Manifest Awards on February 4 in the “rock” category.

PERIPHERY Announce Massive North American Spring Tour; Post New Video

January 20th, 2011
by EvilG

PERIPHERY Announce Massive North American Spring Tour With
Fair To Midland and Scale The Summit; Post New Video For “Jetpacks Was Yes” Exclusively At GuitarWorld.com

There is no doubt that PERIPHERY are innovators and guitarist Misha Mansoor is being hailed by industry experts and his peers as one of the main purveyors of this current Djent movement that is feverishly spreading throughout the progressive circles. This Maryland based six-piece spent the better half of 2010 on the road and pick up in the New Year right where they left off as they prepare for a massive European tour, which kicks off at the end of the month.

On March 3rd, PERIPHERY makes their much anticipated return to North America alongside Fair To Midland and Scale The Summit. This five-week trek is going to be a monster and see below to view the entire touring itinerary. Also, the group’s visually stunning masterpiece for the track, “Jetpacks Was Yes,” can be viewed now exclusively at the link below. The video was produced by Eric Haviv, Richard Webb, and Brandon Morris of FUGO Studios (www.fugostudios.com). Click on the link below now to check it out.

http://www.guitarworld.com/periphery_video

Guitarist Alex Bois states: “This tour couldn’t have come at a better time! We’ll be fresh off of our first UK/EU tour and hungry to return to our home crowds. We’ve all been HUGE fans of both bands for a while now and it will be great to finally share the road/stage with them. I think our styles compliment each other in such a way that this tour will be educational, as it is exciting. Our new Icarus Lives EP will also be released around this time too, so we’re also stoked to be showcase some tracks from it. See you all soon.”
Vocalist Spencer Sotelo further comments on the new video: “Originally the guys and I wanted to portray a very melancholy vibe. We had been brainstorming ideas together for a few weeks and had some different concepts. I thought it would be awesome to try and bring to life the actual meaning and emotion of the song’s story line in a very literal, yet tasteful way. It is a fictional story about an infinite being who outlives everyone, and everything, he comes in contact with. He comes to realize that although living forever has it’s great benefits, it is a curse because everything has a finite lifespan whether it be people, trees, animals, even planets and solar systems. Therefore, this video is the section of his life where he is reminiscing on his past relationships with different places and people that had meaning to him. The rest is basically showing how he has outlived the very place he had called his home for a great deal of time, and he now has to search for new colonies throughout the galaxy to fit in to and ultimately start over and make a new life.”

Very rarely does a band come along that just defies the boundaries of conventionality, but the experimental, progressive metal outfit PERIPHERY have done just that and have blazed a trail of originality that has sent a shockwave throughout the metal world.

Scion Rock Fest

March 5th 2011

Pomona, CA @ The Glass House & The Fox Theatre

Check out full fest info and RSVP to this FREE event at: www.scion.com/rock.

Seattle’s d-beat crushers BLACK BREATH have been touring the US heavily over the past year, and most recently returned from a month-long European tour in November, followed by an appearance with label mates Wolves In The Throne Room and the mighty Neurosis at the end of December. The band continue to bring the pain on the stage in support of their debut album Heavy Breathing Southern Lord delivered in March 2010, which reared it’s head again in countless year-end lists worldwide. With a new album expected later in 2011 and more tour plans coming together for the coming months, expect more news on BLACK BREATH soon.

One of Southern Lord’s more recent signings, California’s trio NAILS’ insanely brutal 14-minute album Unsilent Death also ranked in endless year-end lists from fans and journalists everywhere. After several regional tours of the US, including a rash of dates with Venomous Concept, NAILS are working on their follow-up to Unsilent Death for Southern Lord, are set to appear on the first night of this year’s Maryland Deathfest, and will continue to unleash hell on audiences throughout the year.
