The Lower The Bar Bitchin’ Edition In Stores on November 24th Features the Bonus Track “Red Headed Step Child”

 California rock and party legends Steel Panther have something special coming for their Fanthers. The band will be releasing a limited edition, picture disc vinyl as a Black Friday Record Store Day exclusive. The Lower The Bar Bitchin’ Edition will be in record stores on November 24th and will become an instant collector’s item, as it is limited to 1500 pieces in the United States. The vinyl edition features the critically acclaimed last album as well as the previously limited release track, “Red Headed Step Child.” Each vinyl version will also feature a download card so fans that purchase the vinyl can also get the Lower The Bar Bitchin’ Edition digitally, which comes with another bonus track, “Momentary Epiphany.”


Lower The Bar Bitchin’ Edition


                Side A

  1. Goin’ in the Backdoor
  2. Anything Goes
  3. Poontang Boomerang
  4. That’s When You Came In
  5. Wrong Side of the Tracks (Out in Beverly Hills)

  2. Wasted Too Much Time
  3. I Got What You Want

  6. Red Headed Step Child

Momentary Epiphany (Download Only)


Steel Panther recently released the video for the song “Wasted Too Much Time.” Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia directed the latest clip, which visualizes the message of the song and the pitfalls of staying in a relationship that isn’t working. Stone Sour make a cameo appearance in the NSFW video performing at a house party and singer Corey Taylor does his best Michael Starr impersonation. The video has been viewed over a million times collectively since it was released last month and can be seen here:


Steel Panther recently wrapped a successful co-headline tour with Stone Sour. The band will be playing more shows throughout the United States in November and December before heading overseas on an international tour. All dates, ticket information and VIP packages can be found at:



For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level You Tube status and high-profile television appearances such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, Larry King Now, and FOX NFL Sunday.


Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, Steel Panther’s concept is genius…their songwriting is…preposterously snappy – and relatable.”

ANVIL To Release New Album “Pounding The Pavement”

October 15th, 2017
by Celtic Bob
 European Tour Confirmed For 2018

Of course there are bands that have garnered higher chart positions, sold more albums and filled bigger venues than Anvil. Yet there are few metal acts that have earned as much respect from their colleagues as the Canadian act surrounding vocalist/guitarist Steve ´Lips` Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner. The most renowned Anvil aficionados include, among others, international stars such as Metallica and the late Lemmy of Motörhead, who have expressed their unreserved admiration time and again. The reasons for this evident respect are obvious: since 1978, Anvil have been the epitome of a passionate heavy metal band that refuses to be thrown off course by setbacks, adverse conditions and inconsistencies on the business side of things. Their latest album Pounding The Pavement proves their impressive stamina: never before have Anvil sounded as diverse, determined and inspiring.

Why has Pounding The Pavementturned into such an awesome offering? Kudlow’s explanation is simple: “The songwriting process started immediately after the work on our previous album, Anvil Is Anvil, had been completed,” he says. “So our thoughts instantly turned to the future again. After Anvil Is Anvil had been cut, everybody knew what we had just delivered and what Anvil’s future should sound like.” Despite the diverse range of their ideas, Kudlow, Reiner and their bassist Chris Robertson have succeeded in filling the typical trademarks of this unusual band with life once again – which is an important aspect for every Anvil release, after all tradition and reliability play an essential role in this group. Kudlow: “Of course we always allow inspirations from earlier recordings to seep in, but always with an emphasis on evolving the characteristic Anvil sound. Lots of fans keep asking us to play the way we did in the so-called good old days. That’s why I try from time to time to pick up on that exciting feel of our older material. Mind you, it’s always exclusively about the basic atmosphere of that time, never about copying an older song.”

Pounding The Pavement was produced at the Soundlodge studios in Rhauderfehn in the northwest of Germany, where Anvil found not only the necessary peace and seclusion to concentrate on their recordings, but also met in studio owner Jörg Uken the ideal producer for their ambitioned work. Talking of which: the programmatic album title Pounding The Pavement is a synonym for the consistently serious challenge of ensuring Anvil’s financial survival. Kudlow: “I feel nothing could describe the way we’ve been working for the past forty years better than Pounding The Pavement: Anvil have tried for four decades to earn enough money to survive and continue to make music.”

The new album “Pounding The Pavement” will be released on January 19th, 2018 through SPV/Steamhammer as a digipak version (+1 bonus track and poster), 2LP gatefold coloured version, download and stream.

Track Listing:
1. Bitch In The Box  4:29
2. Ego  2:57
3. Doing What I Want 3:17
4. Smash Your Face  4:20
5. Pounding The Pavement  3:05

MARTIN POPOFF’s LED ZEPPELIN: All the Albums All the Songs Book Available NOW!

October 15th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Yay! Led Zeppelin: All the Albums All the Songs is now ready for orders at my site with super-easy Pay Pal Buy Now buttons at:


Price including shipping:

US orders: $39.00 US funds

Int’l orders (all books go air): $55.00 US funds

Canadian orders: $50.00 Cdn. funds


Pass the cold compress for me ‘ead, in stock now, MY COOLEST BOOK EVER. It’s 1.075 kgs of pure, dense writing called:


LED ZEPPELIN: All the Albums All the Songs

As the back cover says…



Commonly described simply as heavy, Led Zeppelin’s music was actually a complex amalgam of blues, rock, folk and country. Martin Popoff dissect each of Zep’s 81 studio tracks, including the circumstances that led to their creation, the recording processes and their historical contexts. Introductory essays for each album features sidebars listing studios, release dates and personnel. Beautifully illustrated with rare performance and offstage photography and memorabilia, the result is a stunning look at the foursome who forged the template for the marauding modern rock ‘n’ roll band.


Folks, this is the gosh-darn prettiest book I ever got to stick my name on. It’s hardcover, full colour throughout on heavy premium gloss. The cover is weirdly velvety and makes use of spot varnish and neon inks. And the dimension is this odd 7 3/4” x 10” which is… there’s just something really unique about it.


But inside, there are tons of pictures Voyageur Press unearthed that I’d never seen before, plus loads of memorabilia shots.

And the bottom line is that ever last thought I ever had on Zeppelin has got to be in here, because I basically had to write a couple of pages of text on each and every Zeppelin song. This was pure hard-graft writing, melding analysis with hundreds of trivia nuggets, opinion (some of it not so complimentary—possibly get in some trouble here) and obsessive dissection, which was in truth, so gratifying to execute ‘cos for years I wanted to say my piece on Zeppelin.


Plus, there’s interview footage in there for a few sidebars, where I’ve offered quotes from my interviews with John Paul Jones, Aubrey Powell, Ron Nevison, the late Andy Johns, a bit from Robert Plant and a few other rock stars who tell me why Zep rules.

Book will be signed to you from me, so let me know if it is a present for someone else, or you don’t want it signed.

Ask me if you’d prefer a PayPal invoice (please indicate what country you are in), or just do yer usual and direct funds to


Or mail payment (personal check in US funds, cash, or INTERNATIONAL money order), to: Martin Popoff, P.O. Box 65208, 358 Danforth Ave., Toronto, Ontario, Canada M4K 2Z2

MORBID ANGEL To Release New Album Kingdoms Disdained This December Via Silver Lining Music; New Track Playing + Preorders Available

October 14th, 2017
by EvilG
Morbid Angel - Kingdoms Disdained

Morbid Angel – Kingdoms Disdained

Legendary death metal unit MORBID ANGEL will unleash their ninth studio album on December 1st via Silver Lining Music and JVC in Japan. Titled Kingdoms Disdained, the record reunites founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth with bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker.

Just one play of MORBID ANGEL’s searing Kingdoms Disdained, and you’ll realize that this is the only true current aural document of a world sinking into uncharted despair. “The album title says it all,” says Tucker, “everybody’s fed up and nobody can figure out how to fix it. We’ve got all these miniature wars in neighborhoods, cities, countries, and we’ve got people with varying opinions causing chaos, yet everyone is doing what they feel is right. Which all makes it feel like the world has reached a point of utter madness and confusion.”

As if fate constructed the moment, these forefathers of death metal found themselves witnessing the storm’s eye as they prepared to create Kingdoms Disdained, deciphering it with their ferocious music via long-held Sumerian-based beliefs. “It’s been written but nobody pays attention, because we erase our history,” furthers Tucker. “We don’t understand much about the Sumerian texts because things got erased, buried, and broken up. And for years, Trey and I talked a lot about the idea of those Gods waking up and coming back to show us that they’re angry.”

Recorded at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan (MORBID ANGEL, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, Six Feet Under, Belphegor), Azagthoth, Tucker and drummer Scotty Fuller (Annihilated; former Abysmal Dawn) created eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Compositions such as “Garden Of Disdain,” “Architect And Iconoclast,” and “The Pillars Crumbling” supremely illustrate Azagthoth’s incredible creative alchemy with Tucker as well as his own incomparable guitar work.

“We’re always trying to paint pictures; to create images,” notes Tucker, “and I think this album is a fair image of the world today, but taken from a different perspective; the perspective of those Gods who built this, who may be resting now but are starting to wake up.”

Kingdoms Disdained also features artwork courtesy of Irish mixed-media artist Ken Coleman, who created a series of pieces that further augment the stories being told. Don’t walk meekly around the edge of Kingdoms Disdained, go all-in on the journey and MORBID ANGEL’s intense importance to these times will be crystal clear.

MORBID ANGEL’s Kingdoms Disdained will be available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. Preorders are currently available. A special-edition boxset will be available to order shortly.

Kingdoms Disdained Track Listing:
1. Piles Of Little Arms
2. D.E.A.D.
3. Garden of Disdain
4. The Righteous Voice
5. Architect And Iconoclast
6. Paradigms Warped
7. The Pillars Crumbling
8. For No Master
9. Declaring New Law (Secret Hell)*
10. From The Hand Of Kings
11. The Fall Of Idols
*(Not available on the vinyl format.)

Moonspell – new album coming out, tour plans with Cradle Of Filth

October 13th, 2017
by Arto Lehtinen

Portugal-based dark metal pioneers, Moonspell, are back with a brand new album, 1755. Set to be released on November 3rd via Napalm Records, this record will outclass all standards you have ever heard from Moonspell before. The band have released a lyric video for the new song “Evento”.

From the first second the conceptual dramaturgy Moonspell have created feels like a detonation of the mind. 1755 is more than just the band’s new magnum opus: It’s the musical version of the year of horror where a giant earthquake wrecked their home Lisbon. Naturally this album comes and is sung in Portuguese. The album, produced by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Dir En Grey, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter) also features Paulo Bragança, supplying a hauntingly voice of a Fado fallen angel who is a big part of the Portuguese culture. His fascinating vocals are featured in “In Tremor Dei” (eng.: “Fear Of God”).

Says Fernando: “I have been fascinated with Portuguese history since I can remember. The year of 1755 marked the birth of a new Portugal. Much more than just the greatest natural disaster ever to occur on European soil, the great Lisbon Quake, shockwaves can not be reduced to a dramatic death toll. From absolute tragedy, a new city was born, giving way to a new time where Portuguese relied more on themselves than on the crown or the cross, granting us, much of the city, the lay country, the free will that we enjoy today. This is not just another album from us. It’s a musical and lyrical History document, a homage we pay to our legacy and to the amazing skills and resilience of our fellow Portuguese back then, of all mankind when brought down to the knees by the violent forces of Nature and Reason. Whatever is, is right… yet the earth shakes.”

1755 tracklisting:

“Em Nome Do Medo”
“In Tremor Dei” (featuring Portuguese guest vocalist Paulo Bragança)
“1 De Novembro”
“Todos Os Santos”
“Lanterna Dos Afogados”

“Todos Os Santos” lyric video:

1755 is a dark adventure in medieval landscapes – emotionally, technically and completely earthshaking. The album is available for pre-order here.

PANORAMA (feat. members of Unisonic, Pink Cream 69, Random Eyes, Gods Of Silence, Amoral) Signs With Rock Of Angels Records

October 13th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Swiss/Finnish/American hard rock band, PANORAMA, have signed with European label ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records. PANORAMA’s debut album “Around The World“, includes 11 tracks and is produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward(Unisonic, Pink Cream 69).


Christian Palin – Vocals (Random Eyes, ex Adagio)
Dennis Ward – Bass (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69)
Sammy Lasagni – Guitars (Gods of Silence, ex Kirk, ex Godiva)
Ben Varon – Guitars (Amoral, ex Grease Helmet)
Philipp Eichenberger – Drums (Gods of Silence, ex Kirk)

In 2008 the Swiss guitarist, Sammy Lasagni (Gods of Silence, ex Kirk, ex Godiva), met the Uruguay born singer Christian Palin (Random Eyes, ex Adagio) for the first time when Godiva, supported the band Adagio – fronted by Christian. The chemistry between the two was immediately obvious so they decided that they would, at some point in time, try to make music together. The two kept in contact but the years plodded along until 2015when a certain long telephone call on a cold winter’s day changed everything. Right then and there they decided to get to work. They began writing songs and in record time 15new songs were born. They decided to work with Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69) as a producer. The guys soon after met with Dennis and introduced their songs. Dennis was genuinely impressed. So impressed that he agreed to work with them and joined the band not only as producer, but as a bass player too. The guys completed their line-up with Finnish guitarist, Ben Varon (formerly of Amoral and Grease Helmet) and Swiss drummer Philipp Eichenberger (Gods of Silence, ex Kirk). Panorama was born!

Under the direction of Dennis Ward, who took over the whole production (produced, recorded, mixed and mastered), the band recorded their debut album “Around the World” partially at HOFA studios in Karlsdorf Germany and at The TrakShak, Dennis’ private studio. It was a long process but the album turned out fantastic. A Hard Rock production with a bit of Scandinavian influences and Christian has proven himself to be a world-class singer. Together with ROAR (Rock of Angles Records) Panorama found the perfect partner to release their album “Around the World” in early 2018. More to come…

BLACK SABBATH “The End” DVD Out November 17, 2017

October 13th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Almost five decades ago, the toll of a bell and rolling thunder marked the conception of an ear splittingly monolithic riff. In that moment, Black Sabbath and the sound of Heavy Metal were forged. The band embarked on what Ozzy describes as “the most incredible adventure you could think of”, a journey that would go on to define a genre.

• The End, to be released on November 17, 2017, captured the final destination of that adventure – an unforgettable farewell show at the Genting Arena in Black Sabbath’s hometown of Birmingham. Filmed February 4, 2017, The End captures the legendary line-up celebrating their storied career, marking the closure of a monumental chapter in rock history. Pre-orders are open now.

• With a hit packed set list including Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs and many more, the high production values, visual effects and pyrotechnics wowed fans, as the band delivered the most emotionally charged show of their lives. “Because it was Birmingham, it was a special night for us,” said Tony. “It was great to look out and know that all these people have come to see us. What a great feeling. There’s nothing like it”.

• All visual formats feature special bonus material of the band playing a selection of their favorite songs not played on tour. These intimate live sessions at Angelic Studios were recorded in the days after their final live performance, and mark the band’s final studio recordings. Geezer said, “It will never be ‘The End’ for me. I’ll always be a part of Sabbath, and Sabbath will always be a part of me”.

• Following last month’s world premiere of a companion documentary film in over 1,700 cinemas around the world, Eagle Vision will release the full live show of The End on November 17 on DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, double CD, triple 180gm vinyl and a limited deluxe collector’s edition. A limited number of exclusive merchandise bundles are also available at PledgeMusic.

• The End captures a once-in-a-career performance, an essential snapshot of musical history and a fitting farewell to true innovators and original heavy metal icons, Black Sabbath.
