ANTHRAX To Release ‘Chile On Hell’ DVD

May 28th, 2014
by Celtic Bob


Get ready to mosh in the privacy of your own home, because multiple Grammy-nominated, Platinum-selling thrash masters ANTHRAX have announced the release of “Chile On Hell,” a live-in-concert DVD that is set for a September 16, 2014 release.  “Chile On Hell” was filmed at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile on May 10, 2013,  and features Anthrax – Joey Belladonna/vocals, Scott Ian/guitar, Charlie Benante/drums, Frank Bello/bass and Jon Donais/lead guitar.  The band performed an extended set that featured songs from Anthrax’s entire catalogue – all the fan-favorites including “I Am The Law,” “Indians,” “Madhouse,” “Caught In A Mosh,” “The Devil You Know,” and “I’m Alive.”  “Chile On Hell” will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray, was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound, and will retail for $16.98.

“Santiago was the perfect place to film the show for this,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante.  “When we’d played there in the past, we’d finish our set, play our encore and go back to the dressing room.  But every time, the fans would continue to scream and cheer and clap.  I mean, they went on and on, they wouldn’t stop.  One time Scott and I walked out to the side of the stage just to watch what was going on in the audience, it was intense.  Why wouldn’t we want to film a DVD in front of an audience like that?

“Plus,” Benante continued, the time was right to do this DVD.”  The band was in the home stretch of a three-plus-year campaign to record and support Worship Music and the Anthems EP, a period of time that was loaded with high points: the return of “classic era” vocalist Joey Belladonna, Worship Music making the band’s highest chart debut in two decades, the series of Big Four shows – Anthrax, Metallica, Slayer and Metallica, the four bands that wrote the speed and thrash metal road map – that culminated in the September 2011 Big Four spectacular at Yankee Stadium in the band’s home town of New York, “Anthrax Day” declared in the Bronx, becoming the first metal band to have its music (“Got The Time”) played on Mars, two Grammy nominations, and sold out shows in every corner of the globe.  “We wanted to finish on a high note,” Benante continued, “we didn’t want to look back and regret that we didn’t record the live show.”

“Chile On Hell” was produced by Jay Ruston and filmed by City Drive Entertainment Group and DC3 Global.  The DVD’s cover art was designed by Stephen Thompson who partnered with Benante to “redesign” the artwork from last year’s Anthems EP.

Fierce Atmospheres – Eric Gosselin

May 26th, 2014
by Robert Williams



Interview with Eric Gosselin

Conducted by Robert Williams

I first met Fierce Atmospheres lead guitarist Eric Gosselin when he joined a local Austin, Texas based black metal band I used to play drums for called Of the Fallen. Eric was from Maine and had performed in a technical death metal band back home called Living Impaired. I remembered Eric as being an exceptionally technical guitarist and very much into progressive song structures. I was not overly surprised when I head that he went on to perform with Nasty Savage at some of the bigger Euro summer metal festivals. Eric went on to form Fierce Atmospheres and relocated his new band to several cities and states before finally calling Illinois home. Eric’s old band Living Impaired eventually went on to reform and now the gifted guitarist finds himself with double duty…

EPICA Release “Unchain Utopia” Lyric Video

May 23rd, 2014
by EvilG

Dutch female-fronted symphonic metal band EPICA, has released a lyric video for the track “Unchain Utopia”, below. The song comes from their new album The Quantum Enigma, which was released earlier this month via Nuclear Blast records.

“The ‘Unchain Utopia’ lyric video is one of the coolest lyric videos I have ever seen,” commented guitarist Mark Jansen. “The footage worked out very well for this approach. Images and words strengthen each other. Initially we had a normal video in mind but that didn’t have the same impact. We hope you will enjoy ‘Unchain Utopia’!“ Read the rest of this entry »

Korpiklaani and Turisas rock Paganfest North America 2014 at the Hollywood House of Blues!

May 13 – House of Blues – West Hollywood, CA


Review &  photos by Metalette

Every year, Paganfest brings out a fascinating crowd – a subdivision of the LA metal scene that you otherwise never get to see! The SoCal vikings and heathens come out to party in their chainmail and warpaint and tattered fur, and many fans sport plastic-horned helmets if nothing else. The festival also draws an admirably diverse group of fans; all age-ranges, races, and genders appreciate the uniquely good time that is offered at Paganfest. I kid you not, there was a white-haired old lady sitting in the VIP section, bopping her head along to all the bands’ sets.

WAMI (White, Appice, Mendoza, Iggy) Premiere “One More For Rock n’ Roll” Video

May 21st, 2014
by Celtic Bob

WAMI_Kill the king
“Kill the King”, the debut release by WAMI has been officially released last week both in Europe and in North America (via MVD). It is also available on iTunes

“One More For Rock’n’Roll”, the first video from WAMI, can be seen on Metal Mind Productions’ official YouTube channel

The names associated with the project are true legends on the hard rock scene: on the vocals – Doogie White (Rainbow, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen), on the drums – Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, DIO), on the bass – Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), who join forces with the 16-year-old Polish guitarist Iggy Gwadera, who made his debut 2 years ago as the guitarist of Anti Tank Nun.

The idea to record an album together was born after Thin Lizzy’s concert in Poland. The bassist Marco Mendoza, delighted with the young guitarist Iggy, who supported Thin Lizzy with his band Anti Tank Nun, suggested that they record some music together. This first idea, which was maturing for the next dozen-odd months, eventually evolved into the project involving legendary musicians, who are currently recording a brand new album together with Iggy. The drummer Vinny Appice, renowned for playing in some of the best heavy metal bands of worldwide fame, as also the bassist Marco Mendoza have already finished recording bass and drum tracks in Los Angeles. In late November 2013, Doogie White confronted his vocal talent with Iggy’s guitar technique during their recording sessions in Poland. Hard rock fans can well expect the results of these sessions to be truly outstanding!

KING OF ASGARD to release new album ‘Karg’ the 18th of July; Landing page and first single launched

May 21st, 2014
by EvilG

Swedish Viking Black Metallers KING OF ASGARD have just announced “Karg” as the title of their third album. “Karg” will be released the 18th of July, 2014 via Metal Blade Records on CD and LP!

Surf now over to to stream the first single “The Runes Of Hel” and check out the pre-order options!

Karg” is the third album of KING OF ASGARD, following “Fi’mbulvintr“, which was released in 2010 and “…to North” from 2012.

Karg” has again been recorded with Andy LaRocque at the infamous Sonic Train Studios. Comments Jonas Albrektsson and Karl Beckman: “After well over a year of intensive writing, we finally reached the point where everything is put into finish. When countless hours of hard work and careful consideration has been completed. This completion, being our third album which at an early stage was titled to “Karg”, in English, “Barren”. A word which later on came to form the atmosphere of the whole album and a sense that meanders through more or less all the material. It’s darker, it is harsher and more stripped down than our previous releases. More mature, precise and well thought out. A challenge both for us as well as for the observer. Lyrically, we have come closer to our own immediate surrounding and ancestral heritage, based on old legends and tales from our home region, a tribute to our fair and historical countryside. Yet again everything was recorded and mixed in Sonic Train Studios with Andy LaRocque at the helm assisted by Olof Berggren. Even in the phase of recording we used the word Karg as a guideline… and thus, it is upon thee!” Read the rest of this entry »
