THE SECRET: Album Details Unveiled

July 31st, 2010
by EvilG

Trieste, Italy’s crushing quartet THE SECRET are set to drop their upcoming Solve Et Coagula full-length via Southern Lord Recordings this September 28th.   The twelve hellish hymns embodied in Solve Et Coagula were captured by Kurt Ballou (Trap Them, Converge, Cursed) in his infamous Godcity Studios, resulting in cavernous, earthmoving tonal supremacy. Each song preaches of loss of faith in all forms of religion and politics and a vile outlook on humanity as a whole. The album runs rampant with dismantling breakdowns, gargantuan, swelling riffage and jackhammer blastbeats, all empowered by the most shredding vocal attack.   While surely reminiscent of Converge, Cursed and labelmates Black Breath, THE SECRET integrate as much influence from filthy politi-crust acts, as well as psychotic metalcore into Solve Et Coagula‘s metallic surge. But no matter how you try to compare or categorize this highly lethal Italian export, the end result is certain; this is the sound of humanity’s failure and defeat, embodied as pure aural rage.   THE SECRET have previously unleashed two full-length releases on now defunct Goodfellow Records (2004’s Luce and 2008’s Disintoxication), and have undergone countless lineup changes and setbacks over the past few years. The current lineup is inarguably the most devastating and concise to date, making Solve Et Coagula their most lethal assault yet.

Solve Et Coagula Track List:

1. Cross Builder
2. Death Alive
3. Double Slaughter
4. Where It Ends
5. Antitalian
6. Weatherman
7. Pleasure In Self Destruction
8. Eve Of The Last Day
9. Pursuit Of Discomfort
10. Bell Of Urgency
11. War Desire
12. 1968

RHAPSODY OF FIRE To Release Epic 35-Minute Symphony

July 30th, 2010
by EvilG
RHAPSODY OF FIRE 'The Cold Embrace Of Fear – A Dark Romantic Symphony'

RHAPSODY OF FIRE 'The Cold Embrace Of Fear – A Dark Romantic Symphony'

RHAPSODY OF FIRE are going to release an epic monument called ‘The Cold Embrace Of Fear – A Dark Romantic Symphony’.

“For this special CD we composed a unique song of around 35 minutes divided in 7 “acts“. Looking at the title you can easily imagine that such long and epic song will show the most cinematic and orchestral side of our band, all our passion for the world of cinema we love so much and that always represented our main influence while composing Rhapsody’s music“, says Luca Turilli and adds: “Essentially it is a long huge song, sounding very symphonic, full of orchestral sections very soundtrack oriented, narrations and spoken parts. More than in other cases we tried to create a real movie atmosphere with very dynamic musical results, also thanks to the help of the English actors that gave voice to different charachters. You will just need to close your eyes and explore those new emotional dimensions we wrote the music for.“

The lyrics of this monumental, epic symphony is based on the “dark secret saga“ and represents a new chapter, directly connected with The Frozen Tears Of Angels.

Luca explains: “After the long journey to the icy frozen northlands at the borders of the known world, while facing concrete natural obstacles and the inner demons lying in the depths of their conscience, the five main charachters reach the ancient gothic fortress of Har-Kuun, a real monument of evil trapped between ice and snow, the mystic place where the Erian’s book could be finally found. ‘The Cold Embrace Of Fear’ tells about the entrance of those bravehearts in the ancestral world of Har-Kuun and the dramatic search for the holy book of the angels, only possible way to understand something more about the dark secret threatening the whole known world. Also in this case I liked to create particular “bridges“ connecting the new chapter of the saga with our modern life on the basis of symbolism, ancient wisdom and spiritual evolution. To someone who knows something about modern psychology and the study of the different “self“, the hidden geometries and gothic labyrinths of Har-Kuun will reveal themselves very clearly.“

Once again Christopher Lee was chosen for the spoken parts as a main narrator.

“We couldn’t imagine to release something like this without his fundamental partecipation. Sir Lee is one member of Rhapsody Of Fire‘s family since a lot of time and we love him not only as an actor but also as man. Because of his great and majestic personality he has surely the aura of a king of the ancient times.

This extraordinary release, will hit the stores on October15th for a special price. Further updates to follow.

The Frozen Tears Of Angels debuted at #16 on the Nielsen Canadian Soundscan Top Hard Music Albums chart and at #129 on the Nielsen Canadian Soundscan Top 200 Albums chart.

Produced by Luca Turilli and Alex Staropoli, The Frozen Tears Of Angels was mixed and mastered by Sascha Paeth (EDGUY, AVANTASIA, EPICA) and debuted at #52 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, #60 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart, and #132 on the Top Independent Albums chart.

Other international chart entries are as follows: Greece #11; Italy #31; Germany #33; Finland #35; Switzerland #39; Japan #41; France #51; Austria #58; South Korea #69; Spain #81; and Belgium #96.

BENEATH THE MASSACRE Unveil New Song, Cover, Track Listing and Launch Pre-order

July 30th, 2010
by EvilG

Montreal based tech-death metal band, BENEATH THE MASSACRE, have launched the track, “Black Tide,” from their upcoming five song EP “Marée Noire”, which will be released in North America on September 14th. It will be available as a limited edition red 7” record and on CD. Pre-order is now available for each format, as well as for bundles including a brand new shirt design. Check out the track and the pre-order at www.store.prostheticrecords.com
The track listing of the EP is:
The Casket You Sleep In
Black Tide
Drill Baby Drill
Designed To Strangle
Anomic

“Marée Noire” was produced and mixed by Chris Donaldson, known for his work with Cryptopsy, and mastered by Alan Douches (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, Converge). It features artwork by Felix Rancourt, who has done work for the band before, as well as Despised Icon, Neuraxis and more.
Guitarist Chris Bradley commented on the release: “’Marée Noire’ was written using a different approach than the preceding release. We wouldn’t start the writing process from the same point. Some songs were more structured by melodies while others all started from drums pattern. I think it makes the songs stand out a little more.”
Vocalist Elliot Desgagnes added: “It’s going to be two years since our last album and we had the idea of a short release while we keep writing for the next full length. We picked five songs to go on the EP and I feel like these are by far the best songs we’ve ever written. Nothing that different from our other releases but we’re always getting a little closer to the sound we want.  So we’re all satisfied with the result and are looking forward to share it.

“The tones are a little rawer and it helped a lot that Donaldson and Bradley already worked together in the past. We were all on the same page and everything went well in studio. I really like the EP format. It’s easier lyrically to make connections between the songs and follow a thought pattern. We named the EP ‘Marée Noire,’ ‘Black Tide,’ in English, because I was writing lyrics on Absurdism, self fulfilled prophecy and corporations raping everything, when BP started to shit in the Gulf of Mexico.”

BENEATH THE MASSACRE will do a Canadian tour beginning in late August and wrapping up in early October, sponsored by JagerMusic Canada. They will be playing with Neuraxis, Ion Dissonance and others along the trek.

Bassist JAMES LOMENZO Joins LYNCH MOB For The Summer Tour

July 30th, 2010

Bassist JAMES LOMENZO Joins LYNCH MOB For The Summer Tour and Europe

“Smoke And Mirrors” Out Now On Frontiers Records USA
HOLLYWOOD, CA (July 29, 2010) – James Lomenzo (Megadeth, Black Label Society) joins Lynch Mob for their summer tour in support of their current release “Smoke and Mirrors” on Frontiers Records. The band line-up for this tour consists of George Lynch (shred master), Oni Logan (vox),

and Brian Tichy (time-keeper).

After seventeen long years singer Oni Logan and guitar wizard George Lynch found their way back together and again show their amazing abilities in some killer new Hard Rock songs.” I would say this new record “Smoke and Mirrors”, is the record we should have put out as a follow up to “Wicked Sensation”…better late than never I guess…”, says Lynch presenting the new record.

Lynch Mob was formed by George Lynch, one of the few genuine guitar heroes of substance to emerge from the Los Angeles scene, after DOKKEN split up in 1989. The band’s first album” Wicked Sensation” went on to sell over 500,000 units in the US and featured the talents of singer
Oni Logan, Anthony Esposito on bass and another former DOKKEN member Mick Brown on drums. After a tour in support of Queensryche, Logan opted out, with Robert Mason taking his place on the follow up self titled release. However Lynch and Brown eventually returned to Dokken releasing 2 studio albums until he left again in late 1997 putting together a several new incarnations of Lynch Mob and exploring new sounds with different projects.

Worth The Wait: Canadian Carnage Comes to the Maritimes (Testament, Megadeth, and Slayer)

July 30th, 2010

Worth The Wait: Canadian Carnage Comes to the Maritimes

Testament, Megadeth, and Slayer Live at the Metro Centre

July 26th, 2010 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada




Review by EvilG

Live Pics thanks to Jason Saulnier


Originally scheduled for November 2009, then moved to February 2010, then again moved to July 2010, this seemed to be the concert that would never happen for many of us on the East Coast of Canada. Thanks to the rescheduling, in airline ticket change fees alone this concert cost $300! Add on top of the actual flight cost, concert ticket, hotels, meals, and a pile of metal shirts, this is one of the most expensive concerts I’ve ever been to!! Sadly none of these bands have ever played out this way before which added to the anticipation. As everyone knows, the delays were caused by Slayer’s Tom Araya and his ongoing back problems and eventual back surgery. The line-up also changed with openers Machine Head being replaced by the mighty Testament and the band Suicide Silence thankfully no longer on the bill for July.

Roxana Shirazi – Author of The Last Living Slut:Born In Iran, Bred Backstage

July 30th, 2010
by Robert Williams

Interview with Roxana Shirazi

"The Last Living Slut:Born In Iran, Bred Backstage"

Roxana - 1.jpg

Interview conducted by Robert Williams

Roxana Shirazi was raised traditionally in Tehran, Iran and grew up during Iran’s political revolution but fled to England with her mother at the age of ten. As a teenager, a young Roxana fell under the spell of rock n’ roll and would often fantasize about living out her hedonistic dreams of utter debauchery. By the time she was a young lady Roxana was doing just that while living a double life. By day Roxana earned herself a degree in Gender and Feminist Studies at Bath Spa University, but by night she was engaging in steamy sexual encounters with some of hard rock’s most well known superstars… and some lesser known rockers to boot. Roxana Shirazi recently released her new book "The Last Living Slut:Born In Iran, Bred Backstage" a tell-all memoir that is as relevant as it is raunchy, challenging society’s often sexist outlook on the female libido. Roxana has felt political oppression at a young age, endured sexual abuse as a child, yet retains a lust for life throughout the duration of her book. "The Last Living Slut:Born In Iran, Bred Backstage" is a real page turner, unflinching in it’s first hand graphic recollections of rock n’ roll hedonism.

Amanda Somerville and Michael Kiske – “Silence”

July 29th, 2010
by EvilG

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the digital only release of the single track “Silence” from the much anticipated album featuring the collaboration between singers Amanda Somerville and Michael Kiske on August 20th 2010.

“Silence” was written by the Primal Fear team featuring bassist / producer Mat Sinner and guitarist Magnus Karlsson. The song explores a different, more atmospheric and melodic direction for the two writers. According to Kiske “The video shoot was a long day from 6 AM to midnight, but since everyone was so nice and easy going, it was a very pleasant experience. Especially Amanda and Sander Gommans are such fine people and made it an extraordinary journey. I do like the song ‘Silence’ a lot, nice drama and good melodies”.

The videoclip of “Silence” can be watched on youtube now:

“Silence” video, along with the other clip “If I Had A Wish” and a making of documentary will be available on bonus DVD which will come together with the full album to be released in Europe on September 24th and USA on October 12th 2010 on Frontiers Records.
