“Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses” was recorded April 29 and May 1, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia when the band–OZZY OSBOURNE (vocals), TONY IOMMI (guitar) and GEEZER BUTLER (bass)–kicked off their world tour in support of their 13 album, which entered the charts at #1 in 13 countries (including their first #1 in the U.S.). Meanwhile, BLACK SABBATH will head to South America and Mexico in October for a headlining stadium tour (where they’re expected to play to more than 300,000 fans) and then onto Europe in November and December.
German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR have set “Delivering The Black” as the title of their tenth studio album, tentatively due in January 2014 via Frontiers Records. The CD was mixed with Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, PRETTY MAIDS, DESTRUCTION) at his Hansen studio in Ribe, Denmark. 12 tracks were recorded during the new album sessions, including “two epic songs, one guitar ballad, and nine crushing metal songs with all the trademarks you know and love to hear from PRIMAL FEAR,” according to the band. The effort was engineered by Achim Köhler (EDGUY, MASTERPLAN) and was produced by PRIMAL FEAR bassist Mat Sinner.
“Delivering The Black” features a guest appearance by Norwegian singer Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull (LEAVES’ EYES, ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY) on the song “Born With A Broken Heart”.
I was able to catch Mat at a good time between his busy schedule to ask him a few questions about the the newly released Sinner album TOUCH OF SIN 2. The album is a re-recording of classic Sinner material from the 80s that is now out of print.

Metal legends DEICIDE are proud to unveil “IN THE MINDS OF EVIL,” the title track from the band’s crushing new studio album. The track was premiered last night by Jose Mangin on Sirius XM Liquid Metal, and can now be heard online here:
You’re a legendary, pioneering rock star, you’ve headlined sold-out gigs all over the world, indulged in every rock’n’roll decadence imaginable, survived drug addiction and alcohol abuse, crossed paths with the likes of Madonna, Courtney Love, Robert Plant and Johnny Depp, and released a revealing and critically-acclaimed autobiography. You’ve done all this and lived to tell the tale…so, what do you do next? Well, if you’re Ministry’s Al Jourgensen, you join forces with British dark-artist Sam Shearon, a.k.a. “Mister-Sam,” to create a series of comic books and become a super hero yourself.

Hamferð has since day one been fascinating and puzzling metal fans all over the world, with some calling them the Sigur Rós of metal, for a lack of better parallels. This bold, brave and unqiue Faroese doom metal band have indeed caused quite a stir on the international metal scene since their controversial Wacken Metal Battle victory in 2012… and they are only just getting started. Prepare yourself for the release of Hamferð’s debut album “Evst“ (“Highest” in English), out worldwide on 15. November 2013. Read the rest of this entry »
Colorado thrashers Havok made a stop at the Whisky a Go Go during their North American headlining tour in support of their new album, Unnatural Selection. Before the show, I had a chance to talk with lead guitarist Reece Scruggs about the album, the tour, and Havok’s musical influences.
Adult Swim will air a one-hour special called “Metalocalypse: the Doomstar Requiem a Klok Opera” on October 27, with a brand new special album to follow. Voice actors reportedly include Jack Black, “Star Wars” star Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, and Cannibal Corpse’s George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher.
Unlike usual episodes of the animated metal fantasy, it will feature a 50-piece orchestra alongside Dethklok for something really special. Check out the trailer above for a sample of the orchestral-inspired episode.
“This is not like anything we’ve ever done,” says creator Brendon Small. “This is a full blown musical- metal combined with symphonic passages, classic musical theatre, high stakes drama, emotional moments, and yes totally ridiculous comedy. I drew from all of my influences to make this the most unique project I could dream of. This is easily the best thing we’ve ever done with the show and the music. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

Although double bill concerts are not uncommon in Puerto Rico, it is not often that two bands hailing from the same place get a chance to play on the island: on August 17 Puerto Rico got a taste of the Connecticut Heavy Metal scene, via the Obsession/ Graven Image concert held at La Respuesta, Santurce.
Interestingly enough, one band, Obsession, has been around for thirty-plus years, while Graven Image are relatively newcomers on the scene, so the audience got a chance to get a taste of both the old school and new school of Connecticut Metal. It was also one of those rare instances where all of the bands, including the opening local bands, more or less play variations of the same style of music: classic Heavy Metal. The opening bands were Iternia and Aura Azul, who have also been around for some time as well. Read the rest of this entry »
After a year away from The Intrepid Fox, where Hornet played their first London show, the band finally returns to headline as a special one-off show for their fans on Friday 25th October, to release their new single, ‘Storm The Gates’.
Hornet stormed into the rock and metal scene in early 2012 with a whole new style, showing us a mix of punk, metal and rock that works perfectly together. Playing a monthly residency at The Intrepid Fox quickly made a big impact and by the end of the year Hornet sold out shows at The Borderline, The Barfly and Upstairs at The Garage.
The band then released their debut album ‘Skies Are Falling’ in July after a successful Pledge Music project and unveiled a brand new stage show last month at The O2 Academy in Islington which includes a custom stage, over the top lighting,rising drums, smoke, dry ice, wild stage props, confetti cannons and obscene hand puppetry, all of which are a must see.
