“To be a part of an exciting package of quality Finnish metal (and accomplished beer hounds) in the “The Finnish Metal Tour 2” lineup is certainly a fortunate opportunity for us to embark on our first international tour as Barren Earth,” states guitarist, Janne Perttilä.  “We’re eagerly looking forward to spreading the Curse Of The Red River for our overseas friends, old and new!”

British technical death metallers THE BOY WILL DROWN are currently on the road in Europe and have completed the second leg of their headlining European tour.

THE BOY WILL DROWN have just finished the second run of shows, which saw them perform throughout mainland Europe with support from FORGETTOFORGIVE.  The band is returning to the UK for the final leg of the tour, which includes some rescheduled shows.

THE BOY WILL DROWN update from the road:

“We’ve had an amazing time with FORGETTOFORGIVE and we all left as good friends!  They’re an amazing band and amazing people so we certainly recommend people check ’em out.  Great shows were played and more awesome sights were seen.  Waking up to the sunny view of the Swiss Alps is something none of us, I think, will ever forget.  Makes all the problems we’ve experienced on tour seem insignificant.

“We also say bye to our good mate Ryan Mason; we got some awesome footage, photos and good times!  Currently being edited so updates will be available and floating about soon.  It was an absolute pleasure to have him onboard and we’ll hopefully be seeing him on future tours soon for more of his ‘Painting & Decorating’ skills!

“After a few days rest at home, we’re now on the final leg of the tour, this time with Eradication.  A few changes have been made to the schedule.”

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB are gearing up for their first ever North American tour, which kicks off this Saturday, October 23rd in Seattle, Washington.

GAMA BOMB will be tearing around the USA and Canada with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI, and will be out on the road until just before Christmas.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE reveals how the band has been preparing for such a huge tour so far away:

“Speaking to embassy people through bullet-proof glass; working out how long a pair of underpants can be made to last; factoring in strepped throat, voltage converters and flu pills: just some of the work that has gone into bringing GAMA BOMB to North America this winter.  Dollars feel more like money than Euro – they’re thicker and crunch up nicely.  We won’t be seeing too many of them over the next few months, but we’re jonesing to get to the US and begin the tour to end all tours.

“If you’re reading this and are in a good mood, please bring us some real moonshine, hooch or bath tub white lightning (test it first for potability – we can’t afford to go blind) or failing that your local beer.  We intend to drink America.”

MOTORHEAD To Re-Record ‘Ace Of Spades’ For UK Beer Commercial

October 20th, 2010
by EvilG
Motorhead - Ace of Spades

Motorhead - Ace of Spades

According to Ian Burrell from, MOTÖRHEAD mainman Lemmy Kilmister has re-recorded the band’s legendary ‘Ace Of Spades’ at half the tempo as a blues number – and sanctioned it for a commercial.

The new, languid version of ‘Ace Of Spades’ will air this Sunday in the UK. Lemmy will be seen supping a glass of French lager instead of his usual Jack Daniel’s, as part of an advertising campaign for Kronenbourg 1664 titled Slow Down The Pace. The track, on which Lemmy plays harmonica, will be made available for download from the beer brand’s website.

‘Ace Of Spades’ has not been re-recorded before. It features Lemmy’s two Motorhead bandmates, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, who both appear in the TV ad jamming in a bar close to Lemmy’s home in Los Angeles, but which has been dressed to give the impression of rural France.

Matt Doman, creative director at the advertising agency BBH, admitted Lemmy “was quite challenging but really because he’s very protective of the track. We spent a rollercoaster of a day with him in the recording studio.”

After delivering a masterly lesson in heavy metal with 2009’s Ravenous, Sweden’s synonym for “heavy fucking metal”, WOLF, are now diligently working on the much anticipated follow-up.

The band comments: “Hi all! We’d like to announce that Wolf will be entering Studio Underground in Västerås, Sweden in November to record our follow up to the success of our Grammi nominated 2009 album, Ravenous. We will be working alongside producer Pelle Saether. We have been hard at work writing new songs and some songtitles are: ‘Fullmoon Possession’, ‘Skullcrusher’, ‘False Preacher’ and ‘Adrenaline Overdrive’. We feel fired up and ready to deliver a kick ass heavy metal album to you all in spring 2011. Tour plans for next year are also taking form and we know that we’re gonna hit more places than ever before. Festival season is also gonna be a blast as usual!

A fun note for our fans are also that Wolf is featured in the new book Mera Hårdrock with the album Ravenous as well as an interview regarding horror and music with guitarist Johannes Axeman. This book is written by tv/radio personalities Matthias Lindblad and Melker Becker and it’s their second book featuring heavy metal.

We’d also like to tell you about our performance at the Dean guitars UK meeting where we had the great honour to perform with SAXON guitarist Doug Scarret as guest. We played two Saxon songs and they can be viewed as fan filmed material.

EARACHE RECORDS is proud to announce the worldwide signing of the Canadian cult metal act, WOODS OF YPRES. Formed in 2002, WOODS OF YPRES have earned critical acclaim for their ever-evolving, envelope-pushing mix of blackened doom metal. Most often compared to bands such as AGALLOCH and TYPE O NEGATIVE, WOODS OF YPRES toe a thin line between the catchy, the artistic and the extreme to create an unmistakable signature sound.

With this signing comes controversy. As many may know, WOODS OF YPRES had previously announced that they were disbanding so why would EARACHE sign a defunct act? Truth is, the band never really broke up to begin with. Let frontman, David Gold explain his side of things:

“After 8 long years of pushing forward, recording five albums and going on multiple tours as an independent band, we are very proud to announce that we have finally signed WOODS OF YPRES to Earache Records. To address the rumors (some that we ran with and some that we started ourselves), WOODS OF YPRES never actually broke up/disbanded/quit/ended, at all. Allow me to explain.

We just released the massive W4: The GREEN Album late last year (not even a year ago yet!), toured North America this past summer and then in August, we recorded our fifth album, Woods 5: “You Were the Light”.  We’ve always been gluttons for pain and punishment in this band, and we’ve put ourselves through some hellishly busy years while keeping this band alive (not even considering all the side projects the guys and I have done during the same time!). Being the black and ‘true doom’ artists that we are, we simply couldn’t resist the urge to take advantage of the opportunity to experiment with the drama and reaction to the news that we finally, unexpectedly and mysteriously decided to give up after all this time, after all that momentum, after coming this far.

Putting an end to WOODS OF YPRES, after all it’s been through, would be the saddest and most unfair thing we could ever do to this band and our supporters. I also think it was important for us, the band, to imagine and realize how it would feel, if it were true, if we did decide to finally call it quits when things were just starting to happen.  Offering the news of our demise was also the most satisfying false sense of temporary satisfaction we could possibly give to our many haters who’ve been hoping that we’d finally quit for years, of whose lost spirits we can now continue to crush with the announcement of our signing to the mighty Earache Records!

So WOODS OF YPRES never broke up, and we are in fact, finally, stronger than ever.  However, at the end of August of this year, I did move to Kuwait for work.  I am here now, in the desert, working.  When I come home (maybe sooner than expected), we will finally have the opportunity for a fresh start for a new era of the band and a redefinition of the WOODS OF YPRES sound!  W5 is the end of our “indy” career and also the start of our “pro” career with Earache.  The opportunity to write and record W6 in collaboration with Earache is the most exciting opportunity this band has ever had and I can already say that it will be our finest work.  In the meantime, we intend to tour, hard, everywhere!  Contact your local promoters and tell them to bring us to town!  This band will never quit.  All the best is still yet to come.  On behalf of the band, Evan, Shane and Joel, thank you for all your kind wishes of congra tulations now, and especially for all your support and encouragement throughout these last eight years!  More news soon!  DG – w/”

WOODS 5 and reissues of their entire catalogue will be out on EARACHE RECORDS in 2011.

New York, NY – The world’s premier orchestral rock/metal band and Jive recording artist, Apocalyptica, will return to the U.S. for 18 shows starting November 25h in Orlando, Florida at House Of Blues and concluding in Corpus Christi, Texas on December 18th at the House Of Rock.

Revolver called 7th Symphony’s instrumentals “their heaviest and most grandiose yet.” Metro Mix proclaimed “…all were in agreement that Apocalyptica put on a stellar performance” at their New York show.
