ROSAE CRUCIS started working on the new songs for their next album that will be out on Cruz Del Sur Music.

Named after an ancient, esoteric order, this band from Rome is well known to Italian metalheads. ROSAE CRUCIS in fact have been active since 1989 and always followed their own artistic path, playing epic Heavy Metal during the 90s, a decade plagued by fashions, composing a very personal style of music and, last but not least, singing in Italian language.

Courage and coherence usually pay off: throughout the years ROSAE CRUCIS have been constantly improving their song writing. They gained a wide fan base, also thanks to their outstanding live performances. And kept the flame of Heavy Metal burning in Italy, a country usually pretty cold towards this style of music.

InsideOut Music / Next To None announce second studio album 'Phases'
Posted by: Denis / 15.05.2017
Rising young metallers Next To None have announced the release of their forthcoming second album Phases through InsideOutMusic in Europe on the 7th July 2017. This comes off the back of the band's first ever European tour alongside label-mates Haken, as well as forthcoming dates supporting Mike Portnoy's much anticipated Shattered Fortress show.

The band comments: "We're so excited to finally be releasing our new album. We feel it's a huge step forward for the band and shows a much heavier and much more technical side.
This album is very special to us because it's the first time we recorded and self-produced our entire album. We were able to create music that it completely our own. Every note, every sound, every word, came from us and we can't wait for you all to hear it.
Working with Adam Nolly Getgood on the mix has been one of the highlights of this recording for us. He captured the exact sound we wanted right from the start.
Doing this upcoming tour with The Shattered Fortress will be a great opportunity to premiere this new material to an audience that will surely get where we're coming from."

Nuclear Blast / ACCEPT unveil the cover artwork of 'The Rise Of Chaos'
Posted by: Denis / 15.05.2017
Heavy Metal pioneers ACCEPT are back in the game with a new studio album! The record entitled The Rise Of Chaos, will be unleashed on August 4th, 2017. The band's 4th studio release through Nuclear Blast will continue the tradition of its three predecessors - Blood Of The Nations, Stalingrad, Blind Rage - with grandeur and precision.

Now the band has unveiled the cover artwork of the new record, which was created by the Hungarian artist Gyula Havancsák.

"THE RISE OF CHAOS is something I have been thinking about often. Wherever we go - there is some hidden as well as some visible destruction and it kind of changes the world we know. What was there today - can be gone tomorrow and it’s somehow irritating, because it happens on so many levels and no one knows what comes next. The cover is our last stage set - but now clearly 'destroyed' - like... after a catastrophe", explains Wolf Hoffmann.

With their 2015 debut album Overdrive they triggered a positive as well as far-reaching surprise-effect as a vertical starter, which attracted a multitude of worldwide fans. Countless reviews attested the band around guitarist and singer Simon Bihlmayer with their 'dancing from the row' material, a very own, upscale class. Encouraged by this, the songwriting became even more hungry, but also more settled and determined. And now RUNNING DEATH are back with a new work: DressAge titled, the second longplayer presents the crisp rocking THRASH METAL of the Bavarians in so far unheard freshness and dynamics!

Official release date for DressAge is May 26th, 2017.

Whoever, as a new listener wants to get a route for orientation in advance - many sorts of references to Megadeth lead in the correct direction. For friends of such stylistics, it should be difficult in any case to resist ultra-melodic and discreetly progressive rhythm-grenades like Heroes Of The Hour. Similar to the aforementioned US giants, RUNNING DEATH also let all classic, grippy Rock elements flow in homogeneously manner into their partly hit-suspicious staged Thrash alarm. Even on the textual level, there is deliberately thought-through content. Often written with a pinched eye, the quartet's punctual lyrics are definitely the most readable in the genre. With tracks like Duty Of Beauty for example, RUNNING DEATH humorously relate to the ever-dehumanizing fashion madness of today.

The natural, striking singing of frontman Simon, who already caused lively discussions with the successful debut-disk, breaks out of the ten new songs even more individual and uncompromising. Even in the balladesque passages, the guitarist, as a convinced 100 % guy, simply inverts his innermost outwards with full emotion, instead of following the standards of the metier.

The detailed front cover for DressAge was created by the Mexican graphic artist Joel Sánchez Rosales, which was the perfect match for the lyrical relationship to the delicious dressage theme of the title song.
Imperative PR / Maxdmyz play with ex-W.A.S.P. mean man Chris Holmes and headline new festival
Posted by: Denis / 12.05.2017
First, the band have been confirmed as the Saturday night headliners for Apocalyptica: Road To Ruin 2017, a post-apocalypse themed festival to be held at a disused airfield in Buckinghamshire on September 22nd – 24th. Apocalyptica and Maxdmyz were made for each other; a unique band for a unique event, which the organisers have summed up as follows...

"There will be bands, DJs, food, beer and mad motorised vehicles, driven by Warboys and TankGirls, Post-Apocalyptic dress code will be expected to be adopted by ALL attendees... There will be trade stalls, entertainers, music, beer, wine, food and relentless survival games all afternoon with live bands for evening entertainment."

Then, on Saturday November 11th Maxdmyz will be heading to Kettering, for the Day Of Rock 2017, where they will share the stage with notorious ex-W.A.S.P. guitarist Chris Holmes, who headlines the show with his Mean Man band.

Pride & Joy Music / Angelwings - The Edge Of Innocence
Posted by: Denis / 12.05.2017
ANGELWINGS were born in April 2013 out of a group of experienced musicians that had been in the Gibraltar local music scene for some time and who had played in different bands a wide variety of musical genres. Initially, to get together as a band it was decided to perform a number of covers from Finnish symphonic Metal sensation Nightwish. Soon it became clear to all that original music would have a very considerable element of orchestration. Thus, ANGELWINGS became the first symphonic Metal band from Gibraltar.

It is in October 2014 when the band starts to write their original material. The first (demo) track titled Wonderland was posted on YouTube in January 2015 and attracted attention from local media and internationally on social media. Two more demos have followed since, Memories and Forbidden Love. These have enjoyed wide acceptance and support, and have increased the band's exposure. These tracks have had air time on radio stations in Argentina, Spain and the UK. The Fallen and Lilith also premiered in Argentina.

In June 2015 ANGELWINGS supported Heavy metal legends Saxon at the 'Hard n Heavy' festival in Gibraltar. In September 2015 they performed at the Gibraltar Music Festival where Kings of Leon and Duran Duran were headliners.

These ANGELWINGS tracks have been on air by genre specialized radio stations throughout Europe, North and South America and elsewhere. After numerous offers from record labels from around the world, the group signed with Pride & Joy Music from Germany. The debut album titled The Edge of Innocence was recorded at Angelwings Studios in Gibraltar and produced by ANGELWINGS. Album cover concept idea Darren Fa; graphic designer Thomas Ewerhard; band logo design Paul P Cano.

ANGELWINGS will release its debut album The Edge Of Innocence on June 23rd 2017.

  • Mark Brooks – drums

SPV / Bay Area Metal legends VICIOUS RUMORS start a new chapter in 2017
Posted by: Denis / 12.05.2017

Geoff Thorpe says: "We're so excited to have Brian back! Life really does have a funny way of coming full circle!" VICIOUS RUMORS is already working on a killer new studio album.

On another note, singer Nick Holleman left the band to pursue other projects. He may be leaving 'the band', but he's definitely not leaving 'the family'. Thorpe says: "With no bad feelings at all we wish Nick all the best and thank him for 4 great years of recording and touring!"

Well, VICIOUS RUMORS turns up the heat big time as we introduce our new lead guitarist from Portland, OR Gunnar DüGrey. At only 18 years old, Gunnar is a world-class guitar player along the lines of virtuosos like Jeff Loomis, Vinnie Moore, Mark McGee etc. Thorpe comments: "His style, feel and general playing ability is out of this world!"

In the summer of 2017, the band will perform an exclusive German Open Air concert at the prestigious Bang Your Head Festival in Balingen as well as club shows.

SPV / NITROGODS to release first single from upcoming album and video
Posted by: Denis / 12.05.2017
The first single Rancid Rock taken from the upcoming NITROGODS album Roadkill BBQ is available. Rancid Rock is the opening track of the album and makes clear what to expect from this true Rock n Roll 3-piece. Nitrogods have recorded 14 haunting tracks, starting with the programmatic opener Rancid Rock, playing a boogie on the title track, which is dedicated to Rick Parfitt (Wolter: "The song sounds like Lemmy singing a Status Quo number") and giving the slide guitar extravaganza My Love's A Wirebrush a bluesrock feel that brings to mind Rose Tattoo. Nitrogods dig deep into music history on Where Have The Years Gone, their unashamed homage to The Who. "Oimel and Klaus saw the band during their final tour and where absolutely awed", Wolter explains, "that's why we simply had to record this number". The same applies to The Price Of Liberty which the three musicians intentionally wrote in the tradition of great Ted Nugent classics, even shifting down to halftime tempo.
    ROADKILL BBQ will be released on May 26th, 2017. The album will be available in 3 different physical formats:
  1. Digipack CD
  2. Ltd. Edition Vinyl version (transparent red 180gr. vinyl with black streaks + CD)
  3. Ltd. Edition Box Set (High-quality 3-D embossed metal box, incl. Digipack CD, plus Bonus CD Tribute to Lemmy, plus Stainless Steel Flask 177 ml with lasered Nitrogods Skull and Band logo, Sticker)

Horror Metal band Deathless Legacy have released a video of the song Join The Sabbath, the new single taken from their new album Dance With Devils out now on Scarlet Records.

Dance With Devils gives voice to the witches who over the centuries have been mistreated, humiliated, even burned. With its eleven tracks, the album collects the most horrific stories of black magic rituals, stories that are lost in the mists of time, a Sabbath of pure horror and black emotions, dealing with ignorance, superstition, religion.

Frontiers Music / Mr. Big - Defying Gravity
Posted by: Denis / 11.05.2017
DEFYING GRAVITY deftly showcases that patented MR. BIG blend of crunch and melody, from the freight-train ride of opening cut Open Your Eyes to the harmony-laden wonderment of Damn I'm in Love Again to the grateful/wistful nostalgia of 1992 (recalling the days when the band was flying high atop the singles charts with their international #1 smash To Be With You) to the barnburning slide-blues closer, Be Kind. Overall, DEFYING GRAVITY is prime evidence that the only thing MR. BIG remains tethered to is their ongoing pursuit of achieving creative excellence.

Original members Eric Martin (lead vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitars), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Pat Torpey (drums) reunited with producer Kevin Elson (who was behind the boards for the band's 1989 self-titled debut, 1991's LEAN INTO IT and 1993's BUMP AHEAD) for an intensive six-day recording session in Los Angeles. While Torpey was unable to perform some of the songs on DEFYING GRAVITY due to a recent diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, Matt Starr has been filling in for him on a majority of the album. Starr also been touring with the band for the past couple of years, with Torpey able to play a couple of songs at each stop.

"It was great to get back in the studio with our original producer, Kevin Elson", says guitarist Paul Gilbert. "Kevin recorded all of our original classic albums from the '80s and '90s, and we immediately felt that magic chemistry with him on DEFYING GRAVITY. We basically played live in the studio. Over the years, we've all had a chance to experiment with every recording technique possible, but it's still always the best just to play together as a band. Most of my guitar solos were tracked live with the band. I've worked hard on my improvisation in the last few years, and it really paid off on this record... both melodically, and on the face-melting stuff."

MR. BIG is gearing up for the launch their latest worldwide tour which starts May 31 in Milwaukee, WI at the Potowatami Casino.

"2017 is filling up quickly with tour dates all around the world", proclaims Gilbert. "I can't wait to play the new songs, and of course our favorites from the old days like Daddy, Brother, Lover, Little Boy; Just Take My Heart; Green Tinted Sixties Mind; Wild World and To Be With You."
    Here's the complete track listing for DEFYING GRAVITY:
  1. Open Your Eyes
  2. Defying Gravity
  3. Everybody Needs a Little Trouble
  4. Damn I'm In Love Again
  5. Mean to Me
  6. Nothing Bad (About Feeling Good)

Nuclear Blast / TANKARD '35 years of TANKARD' trailer online
Posted by: Denis / 11.05.2017
In 1982, when four longhaired Metal maniacs from Frankfurt am Main, Germany decided to found a band named TANKARD, nobody expected them to still be going three decades later. Not to mention being at the top of the German Thrash Metal scene! But they are still alive and kicking, and throughout these years there's barely been a blip in their path! Now, when the routine of breaking-up, making a 'reunion' and disappearing again seems to be the order of play, TANKARD never joined this course of action - instead they kept flying the flag of Thrash Metal high: a very respectable effort! NOT ONE DAY DEAD!

This is why the founders of 'alcoholic Metal' can now celebrate their 35th anniversary in 2017 with their 17th studio album entitled One Foot In The Grave - cheers!

Check out the new video trailer, in which Gerre and Frank talk about 35 years of TANKARD.

A year ago, the archdemons of British Black Metal, Thus Defiled, chose Imperative to promote their An Unhallowed Legacy release – and now they're back. It's twenty five years, a quarter of a century, since Thus Defiled first came screaming into the world, drunk on sacrificial blood and aflame with blasphemy and that's an anniversary that's well worth celebrating. Hence, Imperative PR have been entrusted with the promotion of a new EP – A Return To The Shadows. Featuring one previously unheard original track and four vicious cover versions of songs that the band hold dear, this is a release of breathtaking savagery and demonic fury.

Two special guests have contributed their talents to the recordings; first, Donn Donni (Vesperian Sorrow) adds his wicked backing vocals to the heaviest version of Metallica's Creeping Death you will ever hear. Then, Mike Browning (Nocturnus, ex-Morbid Angel) takes over vocal duties for a brutal recreation of Morbid Angel's classic Demon Seed. In addition Thus Defiled have desecrated Death's Evil Dead and W.A.S.P.'s Hellion.

Speaking about this release, frontman Paul C commented: "25 years in. Where did the time go? This recording has been in the pipeline for a while, but now with the band turning 25 it seemed the right time to finally drag it out into the light. When we flew to Texas to record this EP, once again re-uniting the band with Daemonspawn producer Tim Bartlett at Noise Farm Studio, we had one new track written and had decided to cover a few songs that made a huge impression on us as kids. The only rule: no Black Metal covers!
So, over many beers, many suggestions and many arguments we ended up with this varied selection of Metal classics. An eclectic mix from different corners of the '80s, all given a Thus Defiled interpretation. You can never improve on an original, only pay tribute. And this is ours.
Rather than asking for any payment, or doing a crowdfunding campaign so we can get a new sauna, all we ask is that if you have time and a spare Pound/Euro/Dollar or whatever your local currency is, you make a donation, however big or small, to Sweet Relief, the very worthy charity that Chuck Schuldiner was involved with."

Having left this offering of pure darkness in our hands Thus Defiled have vanished once more into the shadow realms. Will they ever pass this way again? We can only hope and give thanks for A Return To The Shadows... and a quarter of a century of blazing British Black Metal!
Blind Guardian - 'Live Beyond the Spheres' 3CD/4LP to be released on July 7th
Posted by: Denis / 10.05.2017
There's big news for Blind Guardian: the Progressive Power Metal pioneers announce the release of a new 3-CD package entitled, Live Beyond the Spheres! This will include material recorded from various shows during the European tour leg in 2015, among old classics, new tracks as well as songs that are played very rarely during live shows.

Vocalist Hansi Kürsch speaks about the difficulties to create such an ambitious album: "In general I would say that we've had a really good run on this tour and that nearly every show was perfect. But, at the end of the day, after every band member has checked each and every song and concert of those 30 shows again and again, there were only like two or three versions of each song being suitable to be used for an album. We then had to decide between those last remaining versions, which would have been the most impressive one. This was a nearly endless task!"

But as we all know, Blind Guardian stands for perfectionism in any way.

"The songs finally chosen reveal such an energy, that possible smaller mistakes appeared to be totally unimportant for the evaluation. As soon as you have listened to the songs, you will know what I mean, they feel alive", the vocalist continues.

But in the end, the effort was all worth it. Hansi sums up: "There is always something happening at each show, let's call it 'MAGIC', that is giving us all the creeps. We are really satisfied when the people sing with us, have a good time and go back home happy."

Live Beyond the Spheres is scheduled to be released on July 7th as 3-CD and 4-LP Box.

Nuclear Blast / EPICA release 'Dancing In A Hurricane' live video
Posted by: Denis / 05.05.2017
Dutch symphonic Metal giants EPICA are proud to announce the launch of their brand new live video Dancing In A Hurricane! The track has been taken from the band's latest output The Holographic Principle, which was released via Nuclear Blast in September 2016 and charted worldwide. The video was captured and edited by the video production team 'Panda Productions' during EPICA's SOLD OUT show at The Zenith in Paris last February where the band closed their most successful European tour to date together with an excited legion of 5.000 fans! This live video perfectly mirrors the band's craving for non-stop innovation and for continuously improving their live performance. Dancing In A Hurricane, Live at The Zenith will show you how the live EPICA experience has reached new dimensions once again!

Coen Janssen comments on the video: "When you are in the midst of touring, you tend to forget how special it is and how privileged we are to be able to perform every night. The show in Zenith Paris is an absolute highlight in our career and therefore I am extra happy we decided to shoot some live-videos of this show. This first one, featuring one of my favourite songs on The Holographic Principle takes me back to this night instantly so I can relive the moment again and again. The video shows me in retrospect what an awesome tour this was!!! Thank you all again for joining us that night and for making our days brighter all the time!!! Enjoy!!!" .

Napalm Records / SEVEN KINGDOMS release official music video for track 'Kingslayer'
Posted by: Denis / 05.05.2017
This is not only for fans of Game Of Thrones! 'Rebellion is coming, soon the gates will fall' state the lyrics of SEVEN KINGDOMS' latest track & music video Kingslayer.

SEVEN KINGDOMS are blazing a wild passion through every millisecond of their monstrous music. Welcome Decennium, their furious 10th anniversary. Be sure: This fast'n'heavy Thrash and Power Metal is always uptempo, fierce and epic. Songstress Sabrina Valentine sings with full force and her charismatic voice flirts insanely with heavy twin guitars.

See and hear it for yourself with the official music video premiere for Kingslayer!

The band states:
"Kingslayer is a song about Jaime Lannister's betrayal of his oath, which earned him that very nickname across the Seven Kingdoms. The Mad King was ready to blow up all of Kings Landing with stocks of wildfire hidden under the streets, rather than face defeat to Robert's rebellion. Having already seen enough atrocities committed by the king, Jaime could not stand by any longer with the lives of the entire city at stake. He murdered the Mad King, the one his life was sworn to protect. Instead of becoming a hero, this betrayal would be how history remembered Jaime Lannister."

Max and Gaetano, historical founders of the band commented: "We have spent the last couple of years refining our sound, and playing as many shows as we can, and without any doubt we can say that DRAGONHAMMER is now a band poised to blow some minds and help re-shape a genre!
Power and epicity describe well the sound of the new album and soon we'll reveal more about recordings, mastering (a great name will be behind it) and the cover artwork! In Obscurity there is all our experience and the energy gathered during the last two years!
Dear friends the Dragon is coming back and wait for something really shattering!"

Frontiers Music / Ten - Gothica
Posted by: Denis / 04.05.2017
British Melodic Hard Rock band TEN has announced they will release their new album, Gothica on July 7, 2017 via Frontiers Music Srl.

The highly anticipated new album promises to be one of their strongest collection of songs to date. It is full of all the trademark textures and flavors we have come to expect from TEN, arguably one of the best and most consistent Melodic Hard Rock bands in the genre. Gothica renews TEN's longstanding association with the Frontiers label and proudly displays all the hallmarks of classic TEN albums and will surely continue to build upon the rich legacy that the great British rockers have forged over a career spanning 22 years and counting.

Gothica emerges as their darkest album to date. Embracing history, romance and erotic horror in equal measure as it does, the title proves to be a fitting name. As listeners, we are transported from the darker side of human nature to the nocturnal supernatural, a dramatic realm of nightmares and the forbidden. Gothica is cinematic in every sense of the word. A web of musically elaborate spells, evoking embers that spark the imagination courtesy of the classic song writing of vocalist Gary Hughes.

Of the album, Gary says, "I am extremely pleased with the collection of songs on Gothica as they feel like they belong together. The band are firing on all cylinders once again and it is a gift to the army of fans everywhere who have relentlessly supported us over the years. It is ironically fitting that our 13th studio album should be a little more sinister, at the same time retaining all the commercial traits usually associated with a Ten album."

Following their success on the recent albums Albion and Isla De Muerta, Hughes is joined once again by guitarists Dann Rosingana, Steve Grocott, John Halliwell along with bass player Steve McKenna, keyboard maestro Darrel Treece-Birch, and drummer Max Yates. On their third outing as a collective unit, the musicians in TEN have raised the bar even higher than they had previously. The album is full of stunning guitar work over a rich keyboard, bass, and drum tapestry with Hughes' vocals once again bringing the nuances of the intricate lyrics to life.

Gothica was produced by Gary Hughes and mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward. TEN's longstanding professional association with Dennis has been ongoing since he mixed their 2011 album, Stormwarning.

Additionally, the album features stunning original artwork by Stan W. Decker, depicting a beautiful enchantress reading incantations from a book whilst summoning shadowy characters from its pages. Stan has cleverly illustrated the piece in order to portray the characters emerging from the books pages as the actual characters from the songs on the album. The atmospheric sleeve photography is once again provided by the remarkably talented Adrian Ashworth.

Frontiers is proud to be working with the legendary TEN again and looks forward to sharing this stunning new album with the band's fans around the globe!

After a string of shows in their Polish home, Progressive Rock masters RIVERSIDE will be starting a European tour this coming weekend. The band has therefore checked in with the following comment about the upcoming shows and their live line-up:
"It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce that for all the concerts in 2017 we will be joined by our friend Maciej Meller, the guitarist thanks to whom our music will sound the way it should, not only because he's a very good musician, but most of all, because he's got a modesty and humility about him, and these have always been important to us on stage.
We are now more experienced, more mature, more serious and we're starting another chapter in our music career. We'd like to play our best gigs yet this year and we know that this tour will be exceptional and one of a kind because each gig will be filled with different kinds of emotions.
