POWERGLOVE ANNOUNCE TOUR DATES WITH FIREWIND

September 13th, 2010
by EvilG

(New York, NY) — POWERGLOVE are pleased to announce their participation in a short run of tour dates with power metal titans FIREWIND led by the young guitar sensation Gus G (OZZY OSBOURNE) and THE ABSENCE. Dates are scattered through out the northeast and Canada. “We’re very excited to go out on this run. We’re all big fans of Firewind, and the blazing guitar work of Gus G. And with a powerful band like The Absence on board, this should be a diverse and fun lineup. It will be our first time on the road after the release of our new album Saturday Morning Apocalypse, and we have some new shit in store for you!” says drummer Bassil Silver.

November 4th – Volume 11 Raleigh, NC

November 5th – Jaxx West Springfield, VA

November 6th – The Gramercy New York, NY

November 7th – Les Foufounes Electriques  Montreal, Quebec, CANADA

The band recently released the morphing album cover and video teaser surrounding their next record “Saturday Morning Apocalypse” which is due out September 28th, 2010 via eOne Music. Combining power metal style with nostalgic theme songs of popular 80’s and 90’s cartoon and television theme songs, the band has tapped into the minds of generation X and Y with their most interesting release to date.

The teaser trailer with morphing album art can be seen here: http://bit.ly/csYI66

“Saturday Morning Apocalypse came out brighter and darker, faster and slower than our previous releases,” says Silver. This is the band’s first record with eOne Music and this time they’re taking their songs in a new direction. The band had previously stuck to 8 bit Nintendo game theme songs. However, this new release is their take on Saturday morning cartoons and movies that anyone who’s grown up in the 80’s will immediately recognize. Silver concludes with, “No matter what we write, we know all the comments will be about how bizarre we look, how ridiculous this track list is, and the fact that we somehow got Tony Kakko to sing the Pokemon theme for us. We would tell you how clown-rapingly awesome it is, but you can decide that for yourself when the album comes out in September.”

A full track listing of their power metal renditions can be found below.

1. X-Men

2. Gotta Catch Em All

3. The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest

4. This Is Halloween

5. Batman

6. Transformers

7. Inspector Gadget

8. Heffalumps and Woozles (Winnie The Pooh)

9. The Simpsons (Feat. Tony Kakko)

10. The Flinstones 11. Gotta Catch Em All (Feat. Tony Kakko)

“We are POWERGLOVE and we are here to f*ck with your childhood!” proclaims the band at the beginning of their live shows. After finding success mining the brains of the A.D.D. driven video game generation with songs like “Tetris,” POWERGLOVE have set their sights on the inner child in all of us. To this end, the band has set its blasters from stun to kill; it’s target: the world! The band has recently completed two separate, successful, tours with HAMMERFALL and SONATA ARTICA. Watch for them this summer as they continue to add dates for video game festivals and live performances.

POWERGLOVE is composed of four battle-hardened rockers out of Boston, MA: Alex Berkson, Bassil Silver, Chris Marchiel, and Nick Avila. This band shreds metal renditions of everything from old school 8- bit video game classics to contemporary blockbusters, all with a heavy metal attitude – and there’s nothing you can do to stop them!

Henny Wolter

Henny Wolter

Guitarist Henny Wolter has quit German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR because — in his words — “it just didn’t feel like a band anymore.” Wolter, who is also no longer a member of SINNER (led by PRIMAL FEAR bassist Mat Sinner), is focusing on his new band NITROGODS, also featuring ex-PRIMAL FEAR drummer Klaus Sperling and vocalist Oimel Larcher. The group’s self-titled debut album is expected in early 2011.

KISSIN’ DYNAMITE, ELVENKING and CIRCLE II CIRCLE will support PRIMAL FEAR on their upcoming European headlining tour, which is scheduled to kick off on September 18 in Warsaw, Poland.

PRIMAL FEAR recently released a new live DVD, “16.6 – All Over The World” (recorded in various locations between September and November 2009), and a live CD, aptly titled “Live In The USA”. Frontiers Records issued the two products separately and as a limited-edition combo on June 22 in the USA. The DVD is filled with an abundance of extra materials, such as an entire bootleg section with funny moments on the road, bootleg footage from various festival appearances and other concerts, all of PRIMAL FEAR’s most recent promotional videos, plus the making-of footage for “16.6” and a brand new interview section about the past, present and future of PRIMAL FEAR.

ATLANTEAN KODEX Album Info Announced

September 13th, 2010
by EvilG
ATLANTEAN KODEX "The Golden Bough"

ATLANTEAN KODEX "The Golden Bough"

For diehard fans of traditional heavy metal, German outfit ATLANTEAN KODEX’s upcoming album The Golden Bough is one of the most anticipated releases of 2010. To see release via Italian metal label Cruz Del Sur Music this October, the powerful album boasts nine tracks of pure heavy metal packed with raging solos, plenty of melody but with a serious underlying heaviness, all fueled by soaring, triumphant vocals.

Since their inception in 2006, this tight German band has built a strong and devoted fanbase over a series of limited edition releases, as well as participation in some of the most important European metal festivals including Keep It True, Hammer of Doom, Up the Hammers and more.

Taking their next leap forward on The Golden Bough, the magic of ATLANTEAN KODEX’s heavy metal is more bold and apparent than ever, before, already being praised by Rock Hard Germany as, “Maybe one of the best metal albums from Germany ever” and MusikReviews as “One of the best albums by a German Metal Band ever… Album of the Year: 15/15.” With references to early Manowar, Hammerheart-era Bathory and Solstice, The Golden Bough should not leave any fan of epic heavy metal unmoved.  


The Golden Bough
Track Listing:

1. Fountain of Nepenthe
2. Pilgrim
3. The White Goddess
4. Temple of Katholic Magick
5. Disciples of the Iron Crown
6. Vesperal Hymn
7. The Atlantean Kodex
8. A Prophet in the Forest
9. The Golden Bough

MALEVOLENT CREATION: Pics From Video Shoot Online

September 10th, 2010
by EvilG

Florida based death metal legends MALEVOLENT CREATION recently shot a video for the track “Slaughterhouse”,  which comes from the bands 11th studio outing entitled Invidious Dominion. The clip was shot in Florida and Central City Studios in Los Angeles and was helmed by young up-and-coming director Chris Cullari (WESTLAND, THE APPRECIATION POST). Still pics from the production can be found here http://www.myspace.com/malevolentcreation/photos/albums/album/3225828

“We are deep into our US tour and everything’s going killer,” commented the group. “The band’s playing tight and the set list consists of several classics and one new song, ‘Slaughterhouse’. We shot a video for ‘Slaughterhouse’ the week in between our headlining tour and the ‘March of Brutality’ tour with EXODUS. it is both a brutal homage and clever twist on horror films such as Hostel and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, using MALEVOLENT CREATION’s music as a soundtrack to madness. 20 plus years and still no one can destroy this MALEVOLENT CREATION!”

Invidious Dominion was released on August 24 in North America via Nuclear Blast and was produced and recorded by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, VITAL REMAINS, KRISIUN, GOATWHORE) at Mana Studios in Florida. The cover art (attached) was brought to life this time around by renowned artist Pär Olofsson (THE FACELESS, IMMORTAL, ABYSMAL DAWN).

Christian Mistress - Agony and Opium

Christian Mistress - Agony and Opium

Agony & Opium — the debut release from Olympia, Washington-based metal act CHRISTIAN MISTRESS — is streaming now in its entirety on Decibel Magazine’s website! Tune in now to check out these six tracks of thunderous, purely infectious, classic heavy metal: http://decibelmagazine.com/Content.aspx?ncid=387320.

Still a fairly brand new act, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS have created a massive stir in recent weeks, building up to and following the recent arrival of Agony & Opium, which was released on August 24th via Olympia’s 20 Buck Spin label. Jacking tons of fresh and unique energy into a classic style, the band are quickly becoming known internationally via incredible media and fan response to the album.   CHRISTIAN MISTRESS are also preparing for their massive two-month North American venture alongside Thrones kicking off later this month, which will surely help catapult this band to even higher levels of appreciation from their new and soon-to-be new fans. Get ready!   Promos of Agony & Opium as well as interviews with several members of CHRISTIAN MISTRESS are available now via phone and email.
