Thunderstone – Dirt Metal

After last week’s announcement of the departure of their drummer, the band announced another departure this week, singer Rick Altzi.

THUNDERSTONE has parted ways with singer Rick Altzi, who joined the band in 2009 and is featured on the much-acclaimed album ‘Dirt Metal’. As many of you know, Rick recently joined our friends Masterplan and is currently touring with them. The band would like to thank Rick for an amazing job on ‘Dirt Metal’ and the countless fun times on tour. Cheers brother and good luck with your future endeavours! Here’s Rick’s statement:

‘It’s with mixed feelings that I and the rest of Thunderstone have decided to part ways. On the one hand I really loved the album ‘Dirt metal’ and feel proud of what we achieved. On the other hand I now realise I wouldn’t have had the time that a great band like Thunderstone deserves. I wish the guys a great future.’

Again, remember to leave a comment, send private messages and spread the news by sharing this update! Most importantly, check in next Friday for the third (very exciting, we must add!) installment of THUNDERSTONE news.

Bombus Interview

25th July 2013

Interview by Jane Playdon

https://www.facebook.com/bombusmusic

http://www.reverbnation.com/bombus

 Bombus are a metal/rock quartet from Gothenburg, Sweden who received excellent reviews for their self-titled, self-released debut album in 2010, making it to number 12 in the Swedish review charts. Their sound is mostly based around classic rock, metal and punk influences (Motörhead, Metallica, Melvins, Poison Idea, WASP), which is then built upon with a mix of eclectic contemporary sources.

Their new album, The Poet and the Parrot, is due for release on 26 August. Feffe, one of the lead vocalists (there are two) joined us by phone from Sweden to talk about the creative process, what happens when you scream for too long, and the importance of having enough length to your guitar leads!

New video by Star & Dagger, Sean Yseult’s fe-metal band

July 27th, 2013
by EvilG

Star & Dagger is a New Orleans based fe-metal group formed by bassist Sean Yseult (White Zombie), with her good friends guitarist Dava She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From  Hell), and vocalist Von Hesseling. They are releasing their debut album Tomorrowland Blues recorded at Rancho de la Luna, produced by Ethan Allen and Dave Catching, and mastered by J. Yuenger (White Zombie) on Cauldron 333, distributed by MRI July 23.  I’m hoping you’d consider posting their new video for “Freak Train” The video was made from live footage of their recent tour of England, and showcases the live show that they will be delivering in the US on their tour dates aug 1-10. The song is about a nihilistic ride through a world of brain- numbing monotony – and getting the hell outta dodge on the Freaktrain. The entire video was shot with gopro cameras by Chris Lee, and edited by Todd Perley. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_nvTc4t9H0&feature=youtu.be

Star & Dagger was formed with auspicious beginnings: Sean and Dava were drinking late one night with the legendary Lenny Kaye (noted rock journalist and founder member of the Patti Smith Group) and he declared: “You two must start a band, I see it!” They took his word and set to it.

Devoid to represent India at Wacken Metal Battle, Germany

July 26th, 2013
by EvilG

Death/thrash Metallers Devoid who won the Indian leg of the Wacken Metal Battle held in Bangalore earlier this month are set to represent the nation at the international leg of the contest in Germany. Wacken Metal Battle is a worldwide contest held by the promoters of Wacken Open Air and is currently in it’s seventh year. This also happens to be the band’s international debut. Vocalist Arun Iyer had this to say:

When I first got into a band playing an open air gig was the ultimate goal. Playing to a sizable audience under the sky was the biggest thing a band could do. Now we not only get to do that, we get to do that in Wacken. As an Indian band we are really looking forward to bringing our brand of metal to a crowd made up folks from countless nationalities and hopefully make our country proud. As a debut international gig I couldnt be more happy to play in the temple of metal, Wacken Open Air.

Devoid will be competing with over 30 bands from different nationalities.  This is the 24th year of Wacken and headlining acts include the likes of Motorhead, Lamb of God, Anthrax etc.

Devoid recently put out it’s sophomore EP titled The Invasion in 2013 and went on to be nominated in 6 categories in The Rolling Stone Metal Awards 2013. Check out the official video to ‘Brahma Weapon’ from the EP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJwMQzwF3do

SOULLESS: ‘Serpent Reaper’ Video Released

July 26th, 2013
by EvilG

“Serpent Reaper”, the new video from Cleveland, Ohio-based thrashers SOULLESS, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s fourth full-length album, “In Death’s Grip”, which was released on April 23 via Auburn Records. The clip, which was directed by Kristoff Bates for Black Arts Media, was filmed on location in Cleveland at the House Of Wills, an abandoned former funeral home built in the early 1900s and rumored to be a place of very active paranormal activity.

“You have to see this place to believe it,” says Auburn Records president Bill Peters. “It’s a massive structure that was originally built in 1900 as a German opera house. 35 rooms in an abandoned funeral home with multiple basements, attics, hidden passageways, rotting floors, unexplained cold temperatures, no water or electricity, empty caskets and a crematorium. It looks as if the funeral home owners literally left in the middle of the night some 20 years ago. Many of their things are still there.

“This is officially the creepiest and craziest place I have ever been to in my life. The real deal in horror. Words cannot even begin to describe.

“Being locked up in that place for two full nights was a mind-altering experience — let me tell you! The smell of evil is everywhere. The perfect location for a SOULLESS video shoot.”
