MOTÖRHEAD is BACK – First Performances Since August 2013 Kick Off to an Electrifying Start!

Undisputed rock n’ roll legends MOTÖRHEAD kicked off their first live performances since August 2013 with an electrifying bang this past weekend – performing to completely packed, sold out crowds on Friday at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and on Sunday at Coachella.

MOTÖRHEAD performed 15 songs on Friday, including top tracks ‘Ace of Spades’ and ‘Overkill’, with Slash joining in (see below for some fantastic photos from the set). The exciting set included tracks encompassing the band’s career; including a track from the band’s new album Aftershock.

 

As mentioned above, not only did MOTÖRHEAD bring down the house at Club Nokia, but then turned right around to rock the sold out crowd at Coachella on Sunday! “Legendary London heavy metal band MOTÖRHEAD, with special guest Slash, got the devil horns approval of fans on Sunday at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,” states Wes Woods of the Los Angeles Daily News. In a Twitter post, Billboard adds, MOTÖRHEAD, who have already pummeled the crowd with the heaviest riffs heard all weekend, welcome Guns N’ Roses guitar god Slash to the stage for a balls to the walls rendition of “Ace of Spades.” Any marbles Coachella had left are instantly lost.”

 

Apparently MOTÖRHEAD out-rocked other bands, even way across the festival grounds! According to Yahoo Music, “The roaring riffs of Slash and MOTÖRHEAD axeman Phil Campbell could be heard all the way across Coachella's vast polo field, practically bleeding over into Arcade Fire's Main Stage revue.”

 

 

MOTÖRHEAD will continue to perform throughout April, including another Coachella performance on April 20th. Other stops include Chandler, AZ, Las Vegas, NV, and San Francisco, CA.

 

MOTÖRHEAD Spring Performance Dates:

4/15 Chandler, AZ @ Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino

4/17 Las Vegas, NV @ Pearl Concert Theater

4/18 San Francisco, CA @ Warfield Theatre

4/20 Indio, CA @ Coachella

WHITECHAPEL Premiere Lyric Video For Title Track

Our Endless War on Artist Direct

 

New Album Available April 29th on

Metal Blade Records

The anticipation continues to build as the release date of WHITECHAPEL's new album Our Endless War draws nearer. April 29th will see the release of the band's fifth full-length record and fourth for Metal Blade Records. Our Endless War is a ruthlessly honed album that refuses to compromise on brutality; it is also by far WHITECHAPEL's most streamlined, atmospheric, and emotionally powerful release, pushing every aspect of their sound to the next level.

 

Today WHITECHAPEL are unleashing another crushing track from the new album.  Artist Direct is hosting an exclusive stream of the lyric video for the album's title track "Our Endless War". It can be viewed HERE.

 

Vocalist Phil Bozeman commented on what inspired him to write the song:

 

"The focus behind the song "Our Endless War" is not what a lot of people believe it to be. A lot of people will think it's just a stab at our government but it's more than that. The United States as a whole has been in this sort of downward spiral for quite some time now. It has to do with just us as a nation; our citizens, government, culture, etc. I truly feel like we are becoming those "stupid Americans" that we are stereotyped as because of things like reality TV, gluttony, our healthcare system, school shootings and so many other things. I've been around the world and seen how different countries treat each other. It seems as though they are truly "united" as one whereas it seems like we hate each other. I love my country and my freedom and I will always be a patriotic citizen of the United States but I'm scared of what the future holds for our generations to come. It seems as though we are fighting an endless war and we will never find that victory."

 

During the recording of Our Endless War the band shot a series of behind the scenes and in-studio videos documenting the process.  The first episode in the series focuses on the pre-production and the band's writing process for the new album.  It can be viewed HERE.  The second video showcases each member sharing their part in tracking the riffs that made up the album and can be viewed HERE.

 

Our Endless War is available in exclusive pre-order bundle packages at http://www.metalblade.com/whitechapel. The first two singles "The Saw is the Law" and "Mono" can be streamed at http://www.metalblade.com/whitechapel as well.

 

WHITECHAPEL will hit the road this Friday April 16th as part of a string of shows leading up to the release of Our Endless War. The shows run through April 27th in Birmingham, AL with support coming from Carnifex, Within the Ruins, and Cruelhand.   This run also includes an appearance at this year's New England Metal & Hardcore Festival.

 

Following those shows, WHITECHAPEL will take part in a co-headline tour DevilDriver.  Support on the tour will come from Revocation, Carnifex, Rivers of Nihil and Fit For an Autopsy.  The tour runs from May 17th in Denver, CO through June 23rd in Austin, TX.  A complete list of dates can be found below. 

 

WHITECHAPEL have created an online contest with their new single "Mono".   Vocalist Phil Bozeman has a video message for fans that are interested and would like to enter the contest, which can be viewed HERE.  The object of the contest is that fans will film themselves doing a vocal cover of the new song "Mono" and then upload their videos to YouTube. The contest ends April 21st and the winner will be announced on April 22nd and will receive a grand prize package that consists of: 1 Deluxe CD Bundle of Our Endless War, a 30 minute vocal coaching lesson with Phil Bozeman via Skype and their video will be featured on Phil's YouTube Channel.

New Jersey’s JULIUS SEIZURE and Shakefire Unleash Brand New Music Video for ‘Sixth And Falling’

 

Performing at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on Thursday, April 17th

 

KEEP THIS 1

 

Last week, Clifton, New Jersey-based melodic metal outfit JULIUS SEIZURE released their new single ‘Sixth and Falling’ along with a B-side, ‘Second Coming’, via MetalInsider.net. The tracks are cut from their August 2013 release, Trials. Today, the band has teamed up with Shakefire to unleash the official music video for ‘Sixth and Falling’, directed by Patrick Canavan.  

JULIUS SEIZURE is one of those bands with unlimited energy, which is why I like working with them,” states direct Patrick Canavan. “They got out of a five hour car ride with five guys crammed into one Jeep, and blew the crew and I away on the first take. You don't see guys with this level of intensity often.” 

“The concept of this video revolves around a demon character named “rage”. We see his awakening, and follow him through the night as he begins his hunt for human prey,” adds Patrick Canavan. “During this we will be flashing to another character I’ve been calling “The Painter”. His sanity level is dropping rapidly as he tries to finish his painting. I don't want to give anything away just yet, but I will say that Rage and The Painter will converge at the end for an intense closing scene.” 

Watch the video via Shakefire here! 

The band has a packed schedule for 2014 with a constant outpour of new music, videos, and shows, including a stop at this year’s New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on Thursday, April 17, 2014.   

JULIUS SEIZURE Tour Dates:

4/17 - Worcester, MA @ The Palladium - New England Metal and Hardcore Festival

4/30 - Clifton, NJ @ Dingbatz w/ Battlecross, Beyond Dishonor

5/10 - Trenton, NJ @ Championship Bar - Headbang For the Highway - Battle for Summer Slaughter Round 2 

Formed in November 2011, JULIUS SEIZURE strives to achieve the perfect balance between melody and brutality, with a sound that is wildly unpredictable yet carefully crafted.  Comprised of the former members of some of New Jersey's most popular unsigned metal bands including Will Killmore, Simensis, and The Annealing, founding members Steve Toth (Guitars), Anthony Smeragliuolo (Guitars), Brian Daniell (Bass), and Kyle Wilson (Drums) quickly got to work on their debut EP Beware the Ides of March, which released in June 2012. 

Produced by guitarist Steve Toth at the band's own studio, Beware the Ides of March was met with much critical acclaim and JULIUS SEIZURE quickly generated a devoted fan base with multiple U.S. tours in summer 2012.  The debut single ‘Oxy(Generation)’ and music video, directed by guitarist Anthony Smeragliuolo, received extensive airplay via Sirius/XM Liquid Metal, WSOU, and many blogs, websites, and social media based features. Their 2013 follow up, the aforementioned Trials EP, met similar positive reviews and popularity.

JULIUS SEIZURE has established itself as a leader of the New Jersey metal scene, and 2014 will see the band achieve a new level of excellence.

ACCEPT – announce new studio-album "Blind Rage"!

 

Hardly any other band has influenced the Heavy Metal genre as much as German legends ACCEPT! Classics albums such as »Restless And Wild« (1982), »Balls To The Wall« (1983) and »Metal Heart« (1985), have inspired generations of new bands, and this has continued since their reunion in 2009. Both »Blood Of The Nations« (2010) and »Stalingrad« (2012) entered the charts globally (#6 in Germany , #81 in the USA ) and underline the premiere league status ACCEPT still have today.  

Now ACCEPT announce the release of their new studio album: “Something happened to us, something subliminal and impetuous,” commented main composer Wolf Hoffmann. “It is wild and scary and it’s called “Blind Rage”!”

“Blind Rage”, just like its two predecessors has been produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap.

On July 18, 2014 “Blind Rage” will be released worldwide.

“The cover artwork done by Daniel Goldsworthy shows the beast coming over us - in blind rage - all over the planet. Wherever we go, whenever you turn on the TV – there is blind rage in the works – either natural catastrophes or man-made madness”, the axe man of ACCEPT states.

JAMEY JASTA Talks About HATEBREED's Forthcoming Headline Performance on Day 1 of the 2014 Black N Blue Bowl in Brooklyn, NY

 

 

On March 11, 2014, Black N’ Blue Productions revealed the line-up for the 2014 Black N’ Blue Bowl, formally known as The Superbowl Of Hardcore, which will be held on May 17th & 18th at The Well in Brooklyn, NY. 

After returning to NYC from Brooklyn with the 2010 edition, to reconnect with Webster Hall - the old Ritz where it all began - the BnB Bowl has now outgrown this legendary New York venue and will make its return to Brooklyn at the brand new, 11,000 square foot, outdoor location, The Well. It was only a matter of time before the BnB Bowl needed to leave the beloved and legendary former Ritz to be able to fulfill the overwhelming ticket demand. 

Alongside some of the up and coming artists such as Friend Or FoeManipulatePower TripIncendiary and Suburban Scum, Black N’ Blue Productions will also be welcoming staples such as All Out WarLudichristBiohazardKraut and 7 Seconds, a collective of artists who will create yet another memorable edition. 

But Cuzn Joe, Freddy Cricien and the guys at BnB Productions didn’t stop there and also secured Hatebreed and Discharge, the two headliners of the 2014 Black N’ Blue Bowl, and NYHC legends Agnostic Front, the co-headliners on both May 17th and 18th. 

Agnostic Front’s 1986 classic "Cause For Alarm" was just inducted into the "Decibel Magazine Hall Of Fame" and Roger Miret, founder and frontman of Agnostic Front, will be joined by Vinnie Stigma, Alex Kinon, Rob Kabula and Louis Beateaux, the original "Cause For Alarm" era lineup, for a once in a lifetime performance of this landmark album in its entirety.

On Saturday May 17th Hatebreed will take the honors of closing the first day of the 2014 edition by performing an exclusive set featuring only songs from their two classics “Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire” and “Under The Knife”. During an interview on the Black N Blue Takeover radio show Jamey Jasta said: “None of you will be able to see Hatebreed perform this classic live set anywhere else. This is it. This is the day we give you our classic set!!!!

Howie Abrams conducted a small interview with Jamey about their upcoming performance at the 2014 Black N Blue Bowl, NYHC and the exclusive classic setlist from “Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire” and “Under The Knife”. 

Hatebreed has been a part of some tremendous shows over the years. How does it feel to be headlining day 1 of your first  Black N Blue Bowl?

Jamey: Feels good! Gonna be a great show. There's a lot of kids that haven't ever seen us and a lot of people who are coming out of the woodwork to attend this show. It's been over 10 years since we've played an NYC area show with either AF or Biohazard so it's cool that we get another chance to rock out together. I always liked playing L'amours in Brooklyn. Brooklyn has such a cool history in heavy music. It was a goal of ours to sell that place out in the early days. When we finally did sell it out in 99 and again in 2000 it was a feeling of great accomplishment. A few years later we sold out Roseland w/ Biohazard supporting us and that was another career milestone so playing Brooklyn again is exciting and we haven't played a NYC area show in almost 2 years. I've never been to The Well but I've heard good things. We'll be ready to rock! 

What's behind the decision to focus on classic material for the show? Did you know ahead of time that Agnostic Front was doing something similar?

Jamey: Agnostic Front will be doing a special set and we just figured that with the 20th anniversary of Hatebreed coming up that this would be the right time to revisit some old material.  We're currently out on on a world tour and have visited like 50+ countries since the release of our latest album "The Divinity Of Purpose" so we haven't had a chance to jam a lot of old songs live until recently at the United Blood fest in Richmond, VA. For the kids who are 16 or 17 just getting into hardcore all those old songs are new to them and for the 35-45 year old guys who have kids and real jobs and don't get out to shows much anymore this is the best time to catch a bunch of bands over 2 days and hear some songs we haven't played in a while 

Day 1 (of the BNB Bowl) is especially heavy on metal/hardcore crossover bands. How important has the merging of the 2 movements been to both metal AND hardcore?

Jamey: For us it's been extremely important in the grand scheme of things because the merging of the two styles & genres really helped us and a lot of other bands and a lot of people go out and tour the world and have a career in music. We went from playing CB's to 100 kids to playing Roseland and Hammerstein to thousands and then all over the country/world playing for hundreds of thousands. When they say the more the merrier, I agree. I think heavy music should should be inclusive whether it's punk or hardcore or death metal or whatever. One of our first big shows we ever played was in 95 opening for Napalm Death, At The Gates, Sick Of It All & Subzero. There was metal guys, sxe guys, hardcore guys and skins all at one show going crazy. When the "Get Thrashed" documentary came out. Scott Ian talked about how Hatebreed was one of the modern bands that brought crossover back to the forefront and united the scenes again. We wouldn't have been able to do that without bands like Agnostic Front, Madball, Sheer Terror, Obituary, Napalm Death, Machinehead, Type O, LOA, Biohazard, Cro-mags & Sick Of It All laying the groundwork and influencing our vision and our sound.  

When you think of NYHC, what comes to mind in terms of the scene, and some of its bands?

Jamey: The first thing that comes to mind is the AF reunion show in 96 at Wetlands, that was a big break for us. Being from CT and getting good response at any show in NYC was a great feeling but that show was a dream come true for us. Whenever I hear anyone talk about NYHC I think of the AF, Madball, Murphys Law, Sick Of It All, Leeway and of course the classic Cro-mags "Age Of Quarrel" album which still holds up lyrically and musically to this day. I hear those songs and I get chills down my spine. Same goes for "Just Look Around" or "One Voice".  and shows at CB's were always fun but definitely shows at Wetlands & Coney Island High were great too! The late 90's were fun cause we were able to play in Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island, Newark, Portchester, etc. there were so many venues and bands from all over the NYC & Jersey area, that was a fun time. 

How important is it that the BNB Bowl was created by, and is maintained by people so heavily involved in the scene, as opposed to a random concert promoter?

Jamey: I think it's important because it gives bands both old and new an opportunity to connect with people & play to a huge crowd of like minded fans in a setting/format that is a yearly destination for a lot of people. It's more about fun than business and people get to see and hear songs that bring back good memories. People travel from all over. People get a line up of bands that are unique to the show, setting & area. AF playing the whole Cause For Alarm is a completely one of a kind opportunity for instance. I can't remember them ever doing that and I don't think they are doing that on tour and we're currently on tour promoting our latest album so our set for the BNB bowl will be unique and a once in a long time time type of experience. It's gonna be a great time, see you in the pit!

EYEHATEGOD Announces Mammoth US Headlining Assault With Ringworm And Enabler

  


Today, New Orleans' favorite musical miscreants, EYEHATEGOD, announce their most extensive US tour in years. Scheduled to commence in Atlanta, Georgia on May 28th, the day after the official North American release of their long-awaited new full-length, the trek will punish twenty-six cities, coming to a close on June 22nd in Tampa, Florida. Support will come from metallic hardcore legends, Ringworm, and morose punk metal perpetrators, Enabler. The mammoth roadside takeover follows EYEHATEGOD's previously announced string of live incursions later this month which includes an appearance at Three Floyds Beer's annual Dark Lord Day Festival and a special performance in Baltimore, Maryland with High On Fire and Corrosion Of Conformity.

 

EYEHATEGOD's forthcoming self-titled long player was assembled and financed entirely by the band along with US label partners, Housecore Records, and will be released on May 27th, 2014. Called, "the record that EHG fans have been waiting for; a stomping and venomous set of eleven tracks that reignite the band's amazing propensity for down-trodden, electric blues and with their late drummer LaCaze behind the kit," by Vice Magazine's music portal, Noisey, Eyehategod features vocals recorded and produced by Housecore president Philip H. Anselmo at his own Nodferatu's Lair and serves as the band's first proper release in over a decade. The domestic version of the release will come in a CD digipack, while the LP will be housed in a gatefold jacket. The first pressing will be limited to 1600 copies and made available in the following color variations: black (600 copies), purple (300 copies), clear (400 copies), purple and grey (300 copies).

During the recording of Our Endless War the band shot a series of behind the scenes and in-studio videos documenting the process.  Today the second video from the recording sessions has been posted.  This episode focuses on the tracking sessions for the album.  It showcases each member sharing their part in tracking the riffs that made up the album and can be viewed HERE.

CHIODOS’ DEVIL ALBUM DEBUTS AT #12 ON THE BILLBOARD TOP 200 ALBUM CHART
New Album Sells Over 18,000 In First Week

RONNIE JAMES DIO “This Is Your Life” Tribute Compilation Album Debuts at #20 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart!
 

Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Ronnie James Dio With Renditions of his Greatest Songs from Rainbow, Black Sabbath, and Dio

  This Is Your Life is #1 in Hard Rock/Metal New & Notable // #2 in Hard Rock/Metal Best Sellers // #8 in Overall Best Sellers!

 

Ronnie James Dio front and back

Album Artwork by Mark Sasso 

This just in! Ronnie James Dio’s This Is Your Life tribute compilation has debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200 charts! The album continues to show impressive numbers on Amazon, placing at #1 in New & Notable Hard Rock and Metal releases, #2 in Hard Rock and Metal best sellers, and #8 in overall best sellers. This Is Your Life is available now via iTunes here, or physical via Amazon here.  

“This is fantastic, big thank you to all the artists who made this possible, Ronnie would be so proud of you all,” states Wendy Dio. 

This Is Your Life is a tribute album created to raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (www.diocancerfund.org), which features an all-star group of his friends and fans performing 13 of their favorite Ronnie James Dio tracks. The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable fund dedicated to supporting cancer-prevention research, raising awareness and educating the public about the vital importance of early detection and prevention, and was co-founded by Dio’s longtime manager and wife, Wendy Dio. 100% of the monies received from this album by the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund goes directly into cancer research. 

Produced by Wendy Dio, widow of Ronnie James Dio and Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund President/Founder,  This Is Your Life includes contributions by such metal heavyweights as Metallica, Scorpions, Anthrax, Glenn Hughes and Rob Halford, as well as appearances by many of the musicians who performed with Dio over the years. See below for a full tracklisting, chock full of renditions by today’s most stellar classic, heavy metal and hard rock artists! 

See what the press is saying about This Is Your Life: 

“If a Mount Rushmore-style monument existed for metalheads, the late Ronnie James Dio would certainly be on it … Dio gets a proper salute in the form of Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life…”

Entertainment Weekly 

“What makes the album a true standout is the list of Big Metal Names who have gathered to pay homage: Anthrax, Motörhead, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, the Scorpions. Also, comedy-rock duo Tenacious D, who once smarmily asked Dio to pass them the torch of rock, pay their respects with a mostly reverent, recorder-studded rendition of his 1984 single "The Last in Line." And Metallica, whose Lars Ulrich says the similarities between their own thrash blitzes and Dio's classic, epic heavy metal style are not so oblique, recorded a stunning, nine-minute medley of Rainbow tracks.”

Rolling Stone 

“Two Horns Up… Tops here is an epic 9-minute medley by Metallica that starts and ends with "A Light In The Black" and weaves in "Tarot Woman," ''Stargazer" and the frenetic concert opener "Kill The King," probably Dio's best Rainbow song. Adrenaline Mob's cover of "The Mob Rules" sounds so much like Dio it's scary and Anthrax adds a molten version of "Neon Knights.”

Associated Press 

“A star-studded cast has been brought together to pay tribute to Dio by recording songs from Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Dio… This is a must buy…”

About.com  

“A diminutive yet larger than life and remarkably stalwart knight of the heavy metal round table who could silence a sold-out arena with a single note and then elicit a thunderous roar with the flash of a horned hand, the late Ronnie James Dio is as worthy of veneration as any metal god, and this 2014 tribute album, which was organized by his wife Wendy and raises money for his own Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, offers up 14 reasons why.”

AllMusic.com 

“Dio earned the love and respect of metal fans and his fellow musicians because of his incredible singing voice and his great catalog of songs. But, more importantly, because he never sold out. That appreciation for all three of those things is evident on Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life…”

- Radio.com

GHOUL: Cloaked Cult Premieres Hang Ten EP Via Bloody Disgusting;
Weapons Of Mosh Destruction Tour II To Commence Today

 

Today the cloaked criminals in GHOUL, in conjunction with the horror hustlers at Bloody Disgusting, heave forth the luscious sounds of their forthcoming Hang Ten EP in its entirety.

Recordedby Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (birthing home of previous GHOUL masterwerks Splatterhash, Splatterthrash and Transmission Zero), mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering with cover art by Sean Aaberg of Pork Magazine, Hang Ten is pus-encrusted sonic surf metal celebration, boasting guest vocals from Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) as Henchman #1 and the inimitable R.A. MacLean (ex-Deadbolt) as Kreeg, alongside Digestor, Cremator, Fermentor, Dissector and The Moron Cavern-Shackled Choir. Picking upwhere Transmission Zero left off, the limited edition six-song (mostly) instrumental 10" relays the tale of a Creepsylvania in ruins, and the terrible power struggle that ensues between two vicious motorcycle gangs.

 

Bellows Digestor, "Break out your booger board, put on your woolen bathing uniform, and turn your hi-fi up to 100! We are back with the ginchiest collection of totally tubular tunes we've ever... done... Look, I'm not doing this. If you don't buy our new EP, Hang Ten, I'm going to strangle you with your own entrails while your children watch and cry. So, surf's up, numbskulls!"

 

Get your ears waxed with Hang Ten, now playing at Bloody Disgusting HERE.

 

In their ongoing effort to terminate the weak, team GHOUL today kicks off a week-long West Coast jaunt of live abrasions as part of the Weapons Of Mosh Destruction II Tour. The band will be joined by their hardcore thrash accomplices in Iron Reagan as well as experimental punk/hardcore miscreants, Occultist. Following the obliteration, the band will wage war on Oakland headlining the first night of this year's edition of Brainsqueeze Fest, alongside Municipal Waste, Final Conflict, Negative Approach, Fucked Up Cannabis Corpse and more! Be there or be square. For more info, point your browser HERE.

PRE-ORDER ON ITUNES
CROWBAR will release an all new full length album entitled Symmetry in Black on May 27, 2014. The album will be released in Europe on May 26, 2014 via Century Media Records.

The crushing signature sound of Crowbar is at its peak on Symmetry in Black, the band’s most diverse yet cohesive release. It was co-produced with fellow New Orleans resident Duane Simoneaux, who worked on Sever the Wicked Hand and mixed by Josh Wilbur, whose diverse credits include work with Lamb Of God, Gojira and Killer Be Killed.  

The 25 years of working on Crowbar in fits and starts has culminated in a renewed focus on world domination, embarked upon by a tight knit lineup sharing a common goal. “We’ve grown so close as a band since this became my biggest focus,” Windstein says. “I’m always open to side things here and there, like Kingdom of Sorrow, but nothing is going to stand in the way of what Crowbar does ever again. This is my musical focus.”

Windstein concludes, "The morale has never been higher since we were kids. It’s equivalent to when me and Jimmy and Todd first got this thing rolling back in 1989. I’m hungry again.”

 
CROWBAR is currently touring in Europe and will stay there until the end of April. The band is confirmed for this year's MARYLAND DEATHFEST with more tour dates in the U.S. being inevitable. The band continues to confirm summer festival dates throughout Europe including ROADBURN, BLOODSTOCK and HELLFEST.

View all tour dates
here.

Hope ya’ love it slow, hard and heavy, because the rebirth of CROWBAR is upon us.  
CROWBAR IS: Kirk Windstein - (Guitar / Vocals), Matt Brunson - (Guitar), Tommy Buckley - (Drums), Jeff Golden - (Bass)

GHOUL: Masked Menaces Launch New Hang Ten Teaser Track;
Weapons Of Mosh Destruction II Tour To Cause Imminent Ruin

 


The masked menaces in GHOUL today offer up a taste of their forthcoming Hang Ten EP. A gore-splattered surf orgy of sound, the limited edition six-song (mostly) instrumental 10" features guest vocals from Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) as Henchman #1 and the inimitable R.A. MacLean (ex-Deadbolt) as Kreeg, alongside Digestor, Cremator, Fermentor, Dissector and The Moron Cavern-Shackled Choir.

 

Get down with your ghoulish self with "Kreeg," now staining the airwaves of Cvlt Nation at THIS LOCATION.

 

Recorded by Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (birthing home of Splatterhash, Splatterthrash and Transmission Zero), mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering with cover art by Sean Aaberg of Pork Magazine, Hang Ten features songs written exclusively in their unique brand of surf metal the quartet has previously only dabbled in. Picking up where Transmission Zero left off, the EP relays the tale of a Creepsylvania in ruins, and the terrible power struggle that ensues between two vicious motorcycle gangs.

 

In an ongoing effort to vanquish souls, team GHOUL will be pillaging seven credulous metropolises throughout the West Coast later this month on the Weapons Of Mosh Destruction II Tour. The band will be joined by their hardcore thrash mutant collaborators in Iron Reagan as well as experimental punk/hardcore rippers, Occultist. Following their imminent obliteration, the band will spread their sonic debauchery all over Oakland headlining the first night of this year's edition of Brainsqueeze Fest, which features more than a dozen ear-bleeders including Municipal Waste, Final Conflict, Negative Approach, Fucked Up and Cannabis Corpse. For more info, point your browser HERE.

"Why, it's quite remarkable. I've never heard the like. Is it surf? Not quite. Is it metal? Maybe. Is it jazz? No, that's a stupid question, unfit for a real life noted musical anthropologist such as myself. It's from Creepsylvania, you say? Ghastly country. Absolutely crawling with gypsies. Say, old chap, who let you in to my office?" -- Cambridge University musical anthropologist Dr. Mantle Bannister PhD

New Jersey’s JULIUS SEIZURE and Metal Insider Reveal New Single ‘Sixth And Falling’ + Bonus Track ‘Second Coming’

 

Performing Locally + Thursday, April 17th at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival

 

Sixth and Falling logo design

 

Clifton, New Jersey-based melodic metal outfit JULIUS SEIZURE— propelled by the re-joining of original vocalist Yosef El— are pleased to announce the release of their brand new tracks ‘Sixth and Falling’ and ‘Second Coming’, today via MetalInsider.net! The tracks are cut from their August 2013 release, Trials. Check out the featured Unsigned and Streamed feature here, exclusively via MetalInsider.net.

“‘Sixth and Falling’ really encapsulates what JULIUS SEIZURE is all about,” states guitarist Anthony Smeragliuolo. “Our songs have something for everyone, and this is the epitome of that concept.  It's got memorable, catchy hooks, both vocally and instrumentally, while maintaining the heaviness that defines us.  The arrangement of this song is what stands out to me.  It's got speed, brutality, groove, and melody in a dynamic three and a half minute package."

Formed in November 2011, JULIUS SEIZURE strives to achieve the perfect balance between melody and brutality, with a sound that is wildly unpredictable yet carefully crafted.  Comprised of the former members of some of New Jersey's most popular unsigned metal bands including Will Killmore, Simensis, and The Annealing, founding members Steve Toth (Guitars), Anthony Smeragliuolo (Guitars), Brian Daniell (Bass), and Kyle Wilson (Drums) quickly got to work on their debut EP Beware the Ides of March, which released in June 2012. 

Produced by guitarist Steve Toth at the band's own studio, Beware the Ides of March was met with much critical acclaim and JULIUS SEIZURE quickly generated a devoted fan base with multiple U.S. tours in summer 2012.  The debut single ‘Oxy(Generation)’ and music video, directed by guitarist Anthony Smeragliuolo, received extensive airplay via Sirius/XM Liquid Metal, WSOU, and many blogs, websites, and social media based features. Their 2013 follow up, the aforementioned Trials EP, met similar positive reviews and popularity.

The band has a packed schedule for 2014 with a constant outpour of new music, videos, and shows, including a stop at this year’s New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on Thursday, April 17, 2014.  JULIUS SEIZURE has established itself as a leader of the New Jersey metal scene, and 2014 will see the band achieve a new level of excellence.

JULIUS SEIZURE Tour Dates:

4/5 - Trenton, NJ @ Championship Bar

4/17 - Worcester, MA @ The Palladium - New England Metal and Hardcore Festival

4/30 - Clifton, NJ @ Dingbatz w/ Battlecross, Beyond Dishonor

5/10 - Trenton, NJ @ Championship Bar - Headbang For the Highway - Battle for Summer Slaughter Round 2

Bassist and backing vocalist Ryan Neff adds, “The song ‘Echoes’ is a very different track compared to the rest of the record, and everything else we've written, which makes it one of my favorites on the record. I'm stoked for everyone to hear this new tune!”

 

Rise Of The Lion is MISS MAY I’s fourth album and the first to be produced by the legendary Terry Date (PanteraDeftones, White Zombie, Bring Me The Horizon).

After the resounding underground success of their debut full-length release Monument, MISS MAY I took a step beyond the metalcore world they had grown up in with the release of their album At Heart in 2012. The record, produced by renowned record producer Machine (Lamb Of God), proved to be one of the strongest and most surprising metal records of the last few years, spawning huge singles in the songs ‘Hey Mister’ and ‘Day By Day’. Entering the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week at #32, At Heart saw the band embrace a more mainstream metal approach to their music. During their 2012 Vans Warped Tour main stage onslaught, the At Heart campaign made massive leaps, seeing MISS MAY I nominated for ‘Best New Talent’ award at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, as well as headlining the Alternative Press 2012 Tour, and picking up support at Active Rock Radio for the first time. On the live side, the band was hand-picked for tours with the likes of Five Finger Death PunchKillswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine.

SCION AV PRESENTS RED FANG'S SPRING TOUR "SITUATION: AWESOME!"

 

PORTLAND-BASED BAND RETURN TO THE ROAD  

FOR FIRST 2014 U.S. OUTING

 

 



April 1, 2014, Torrance, Calif. - Scion Audio Visual presents Red Fang's Spring tour, Situation: AWESOME!, the Portland band's first Stateside outing in 2014. The one-month trek kicks off May 16 at Slim's in San Francisco and includes a stop at Scion AV's Rock Fest in Pomona on May 17.

 

As part of the Scion AV-sponsored tour, Red Fang will release a new single titled "The Meadows" in early May, with a limited edition 7-inch available along the tour. A video for the song will arrive during the Situation: AWESOME! tour.

 

Red Fang released Whales and Leeches in October, with the eleven-song album quickly becoming the band's best-selling and most critically acclaimed release to date. Alternative Press described the album as "bigger, bolder, heavier, catchier and even more savagely fun," Stereogum said the release "takes flight and soars," while Magnet Magazine said Whales and Leeches "is a monumental success - a clear line from Red Fang's earliest recordings to it latest."

 

The band performed single "Blood Like Cream" on The Late Show with David Letterman in January (http://youtu.be/bwnGjbGEE_s) and also issued a hilarious video for the song, featuring Portlandia creator/Late Night with Seth Meyers' bandleader Fred Armisen and the band members during an unusual zombie invasion ( http://youtu.be/elfuaxHQWlQ).

 

A Twitter (Twitter.com/ScionAV) sweepstakes will be ongoing throughout the tour, with two pairs being given away per show.

NASHVILLE PUSSY Announce North American Tour Dates

  

Nashville Pussy knocks out a home run to kick 2014 off with a steel-tipped, shitkickin' right pump.

-Blabbermouth

 

A raw, clever, tough-as-nails offering of greasy-spoon rock'n'roll that feels like Skynyrd for the depraved and Motörhead drunk on moonshine - the perfect background music for nude motorcycle rallies and whiskey-drinking competitions.

-About.com

 

 Up The Dosage is a sleazy, heavy-grooved, explosive, and boisterous effort that encompasses elements of Let It Bleed, Ace Of Spades, Never Mind The Bullocks, and Highway To Hell -- it's that magnificent.

-Sleaze Roxx

One of the most unusual and charismatic rock acts of our time, NASHVILLE PUSSY has released their latest studio album Up The Dosage via SPV/Steamhammer.  The album can be purchased on Amazon and iTunes

 

In support of the Up the Dosage, the band has announced a North American tour beginning this May.  The tour kicks off May 21st in Charlotte, NC and runs through June 21st in Chicago, IL.   The tour sees the band supporting their friends The Supersuckers as well as playing headline gigs with support coming from catl and The Yawpers.

 

In other NASHVILLE PUSSY news, the band has just released a new iPhone app.  The app, which can be downloaded HERE, is the official mobile app for NASHVILLE PUSSY. The band manages this app and fans can access Nashville Pussy songs, music videos, live interviews, news Releases, upcoming live events and more. Interact with the band and other fans from around the world. Receive local venue and ticketing information via push notifications for upcoming NASHVILLE PUSSY concerts near you. Quickly add concert details directly to your smartphones calendar, buy tickets or invite your friends to attend the concert with you through Facebook or email.

 

Up the Dosage picks up seamlessly where their 2009 release From Hell To Texas left off. And what is more: their five-year hiatus seems to have done frontman Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar) and Ruyter Suys (guitars) good - all 13 new songs (plus two bonus tracks) sound like they were catapulted into to the public from a fountain of youth, rocking in typical Pussy style. Up the Dosage features the first recordings from new bassist Bonnie Buitrago who took over the bass player duties from Karen Cuda. 

 

Rick Beato, known for his production work with Shinedown, mixed the album.  He also is responsible for writing the current #1 Song on the Billboard County Chart "Carolina" by the band Parmalee.

 

NASHVILLE PUSSY came together in 1996. Ever since, the band has been performing a strenuous annual gig marathon, touring with acts like Motorhead, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as playing festivals like Wacken Open Air. Classic albums such as Let Them Eat Pussy (1998), High As Hell (2000), Say Something Nasty (2002) or From Hell To Texas (2009) have caused an international stir, and their single release: Fried Chicken And Coffee" earned the band a Grammy Nomination in the late Nineties in the category ´Best Metal Performance`.

Thrash Legends EXODUS Issue First Studio Update!

 

On Tour with SLAYER and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES in May 2014 + Rock On The Range + Heavy Montreal

 

 

San Francisco's veteran thrashers EXODUS have entered a studio in Northern California with producer Andy Sneap to record their eleventh studio album. Guitarist and songwriter Gary Holt has issued the following update:

 

“We are well into drum tracks; everything is going super smooth and Tom [Hunting] is just killing it! Best drum sound this band has ever laid down - sounds just simply pummeling! Only one more song and some B sides to go, then we go through things and make sure everything is up to par, and then time for guitars! Can't wait to add the crunch to these monsters. This is gonna be so goddamned heavy it ain't even funny! We couldn't be more stoked and pleased with how this record is coming along! Bludgeoning!”

 

 

 

 

EXODUS performed at Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEviL in San Francisco in early February. This May, they’ll play six shows as direct support to Slayer with openers SUICIDAL TENDENCIES before joining Guns N’ Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, and Kid Rock at this year’s Rock On The Range festival.

ABOUT EXODUS:

With a career spanning 34 years and over five million albums sold worldwide, EXODUS have not only helped shape & define the thrash metal genre for over three decades but they continually seek to raise its standards. One of the forefathers of the Bay Area scene that became known & envied throughout the world, the band’s 1985 debut album, Bonded By Blood, has since become a legacy album featuring mandatory live staples such as "Strike Of The Beast," "A Lesson In Violence," and the album’s title track. Formed in 1980, the band’s original members included Tom Hunting on drums, Kirk Hammett (METALLICA) & Tim Agnello on guitars, and Carlton Melson on bass. With a line-up that evolved throughout the years, the current incarnation of EXODUS has remained unchanged since 2007: Gary Holt & Lee Altus on guitars, Tom Hunting on drums, Jack Gibson on bass, and Rob Dukes on vocals. To date, EXODUS has released ten studio albums, two live albums and one compilation.  Their most recent release Exhibit B: The Human Condition debuted at #114 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart in 2010.

KING PARROT:
Australian Thrash Grind Assault Visits Housecore HQ; Video Posted + North American Takeover Continues

 

 

Currently on a conquest to shred the collective ears of North America, the thrash grind hooligans in KING PARROT recently dropped by Housecore Records during their tour stop in New Orleans last week. The band systematically leveled Siberia following a chat with metal legends Philip H. Anselmo and Mike IX Williams about touring, new records, guitar lessons, and burning holes in the ground in the swamps of Louisiana!

KING PARROT are only approaching the half-way mark of their live invasion and have a plethora of shows coming up all around the US and Canada. Additionally, the band will be returning to California by popular demand after laying waste to venues with Cattle Decapitation earlier this month.

Among Australia's most lethal and extreme new bands, KING PARROT is touring in support of their Bite Your Head Off full-length released via Candlelight Records last year. Produced by Jason Fuller (Blood Duster, Dern Rutlidge) and Adam Calaitzis (Damaged, Abramelin), the record manages to capture the raw

"A nice little cross-up of musical ability and amusing visuals (the videos for 'Dead End' and 'Shit On The Liver' are quality viewing), KING PARROT should be able to find their place in a relatively stale and average grind scene. And frankly, that's what grind needs: A shot in the arm, a mix-up, and some well-intended goofiness... this should do it. 8.5/10" - Dead Rhetoric

 

"Every track on Bite Your Head Off is a brutal showing of absolute speed, power and destruction..." - The Metalithic

 

"I've never felt so personally threatened by a record before" - Hysteria Magazine

 

"...a calculated piece of extreme art, with strong musicianship and a production job skilfully left just on the right side of raw and dirty..." - Beat.com

 

"...its ceaseless brutality will do much more than just rip your head off... from start to finish it tears you limb from limb 9/10" - Ghost Cult

 

"Whether it's 'Dead End,' the shortest, meanest track on the album, or 'Cold Steel Probe,' an infectious onslaught of multi-leveled grind that has no qualms about dragging coffins or simply setting them afire, KING PARROT's Bite Your Head Off is a no-brainer, comfortably taking a seat next to other 2012 entries like Strong Intention's Razorblade Express, Mulletcorpse's Disinfect, and Kess'khtak's Nurturing Conditions For Rupture. Killer stuff." - Metal Observer intensity of their live shows, defying genres with a cross section attack of thrash, grind, punk and hardcore.

The album was received well and the band toured extensively surrounding its release, accolades include, "'I've Failed You' is completely written and unequivocally hard as nails," says Outburn Magazine. Thenewreview.net more directly states, "'I’ve Failed You' is their best album to date."

GAMMA RAY: German Power Metal Masters Premiere New Tracks From Empire Of The Undead; Album To Drop Next Month
  

 

In celebration of its forthcoming release, Germany power metal masters, GAMMA RAY, offer up a whopping six tracks from their forthcoming new full-length, Empire Of The Undead, set for release next month.

 

In a mammoth, collaborative promotional effort, Bravewords, Decibel Magazine and Metal Insider, unite, each bringing fans two tracks from the record.

 

Sample "Avalon" and "Pale Rider," currently streaming at
Bravewords HERE.

"Born To Fly" and "Master Of Confusion," at Decibel HERE.

"Time For Deliverance" and "Demonseed," at Metal Insider HERE.

 

A record that almost wasn't, Empire Of The Undead was composed throughout 2013 with Eike Freese (Dark Age) at the mixing desk alongside bassist/co-writer, Dirk Schlächter, and was nearing completion before Hammer Studios, their home, rehearsal space, and meeting point for many metal bands throughout Germany, had burned down leaving much of its contents in ruins. Fortunately, the Empire Of The Undead masters managed to make it through unscathed. "If this could not stop us, nothing ever will," joked light-hearted GAMMA RAY vocalist Kai Hansen, adding that, "We got rid of a lot of shit that we gathered there. Unfortunately, a lot of good equipment as well. Anyhow, we look towards the future, we saved the production and we can continue now in this new place."

 

More than four years since the release of their critically-acclaimed tenth full-length, To The Metal!, Empire Of The Undead is over an hour long and showcases a band more ambitious and variable than ever before. From the symphonic bombast of album opener "Avalon," to the high-speed, Judas Priestian drive of "Hellbent," GAMMA RAY manages to tread through an entire spectrum of heavy metal. Elsewhere the band seamlessly explores the realms of driving hard rock ("Pale Rider") - a stylistic element Hansen honed from his time with side project Unisonic; triumphant power metal anthems ("I Will Return") and emotional rock ballads ("Time For Deliverance"). Adding to its sonic diversity is the notable variation in Hansen's characteristically high-pitched, voice. On "Master Of Confusion" from 2013's eponymous EP, Hansen's timbre is reminiscent of Billy Idol while the anthemesque "Seven" is suddenly punctuated by a sinister recitative, cleverly decelerating the song's speed before finally exploding in a great choir finale.

"As far as variation is concerned, I think that's something we always craved for, something we always needed. To just do the same thing on ten or eleven songs is boring in some way," Hansen remarks. "I always liked albums that had a certain variety in style in some way, as long as everything fits together. We always took the freedom to do what we liked and since I like so many different things, this album has become quite manifold...There's definitely more bite and heaviness on this album. Since I've been pretty busy with Unisonic, which is more on the hardrock /AOR side of things, there has definitely been a need to be as bad as can be with GAMMA RAY now...."

 

Empire Of The Undead will be released in North America on CD, LP and digitally via Armoury Records in conjunction with earMusic on April 15, 2014.

Ace Frehley Announces Album Title & Street Date
ROCK LEGEND ACE FREHLEY SIGNS 
WORLDWIDE MULTI ALBUM DEAL WITH 
ENTERTAINMENT ONE MUSIC
 
"SPACE INVADER," FIRST NEW ALBUM
IN FIVE YEARS, AVAILABLE ON 6/24/14
 
FREHLEY TO BE INDUCTED INTO ROCK 
AND ROLL HALL OF FAME AND
TO APPEAR AT THE REVOLVER GOLDEN
GODS AWARDS IN APRIL
(New York, NY) - 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee  ACE FREHLEY will release SPACE INVADER, his first new solo album in five years, via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) on June 24th, 2014. The album will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller’s “The Joker.”  This album is the first release under Frehley's new universal deal on eOne Music.
 
Frehley has released an official statement surrounding the exciting news:
 
“Life on Earth has been very good to me, and the body of work I’ve created over the years has withstood the test of time.  Today I see no obstacles before me and my creativity has never been more fine tuned. Growing up in an Alien world has enhanced my senses and allowed me to succeed where others would have failed. The best is yet to come!” 
 
Widely known as the original “Space Ace" and founding guitarist for 16 cumulative years (over 2 tenures) of the multi platinum selling rock band KISS, Frehley is demonstrably the most popular original member.  In addition to having the best selling solo album career (vintage or current) among the original foursome, Frehley’s self titled Ace Frehley, released in 1978, went on to sell over one million copies, producing the only Top 40 single, “New York Groove,” from any of the legendary KISS solo albums; (peaking at #13).   The massive hit was most recently featured in an episode of cult show “Entourage” and was also KISS’ second bestselling download in 2012, besting such KISS Army anthems as “I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” “Beth” and “Calling Dr. Love” even after 36 years.
 
Since departing from KISS, Frehley went on to release four more solo albums and one live EP including his most recent effort, Anomaly in 2009, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and received a welcoming response among critics. "’Anomaly' shows why many rock and metal guitarists list ‘Space Ace’ as a prime six-string influence," said Rolling Stone.
 
ACE FREHLEY will participate in the 2014 REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS show by presenting the Dimebag Darrell "Best Guitarist" Award alongside label-mate Zakk Wylde. The awards show will take place on April 23, 2014 at the CLUB NOKIA Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets are on sale now!
 
Frehley adds comment.

 
 “It’s exciting to finally be part of the Golden Gods, awards and an honor to be part of any Dimebag memorial award.  He was a friend, and I know everyone misses him, as do I.”

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS
SIGN ARTIST SERVICES DEAL WITH BMG

SET TO RELEASE TWO NEW ALBUMS IN 2015 

UPDATES FROM THE STUDIO TO BE POSTED

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS announced Tuesday, March 25 via the band’s social networks that they’ve signed an Artist Services deal with BMG. Via Martha’s Music/BMG, they will issue two new SMASHING PUMPKINS albums in 2015: MONUMENTS TO AN ELEGY and DAY FOR NIGHT. The first single (title TBA) is expected to be released by year’s end.

The PUMPKINSBILLY CORGAN says, “For those interested in sound, think: 'guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars’ but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic.”

Recording sessions began yesterday, “as plenty of songs have been written and are ready to go,” said CORGAN. “Manning the boards will be producer Howard Willing, with whom I first had the pleasure of working with during the Adore sessions. We expect a single out by year's end.”

CORGAN also noted, “Additionally, this stands as the initial post on a new nexus: The Panopticon, which through its simplicity should better address the speed of modern life. A continuing feature, items regarding each day's recording will be shared that same evening, with song titles, lyrics, poetic impressions, pictures, sound clips, studio gear and the like offered for a circuitous, bird's eye view of the process as it unfolds.”

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history having sold more than 30 million albums, and won multiple Grammy Awards in the process.  Formed in Chicago in 1988, they released Gish, their influential and platinum debut in 1991, which was followed by albums including the nine-time platinum Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness and the four-time platinum Siamese Dream, as well as the platinum certified 1998 album Adore.   The pivotal group’s many hits defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation.   The PUMPKINS returned in 2007 with their acclaimed sixth album Zeitgeist.  They have since remained on the cutting edge of music and technology with various online releases. In June 2012, the band released their acclaimed album Oceania. Marking THE SMASHING PUMPKINS’ 7th studio record, it is “an album within an album,” part of their 44-song work-in-progress Teargarden By Kaleidyscope.

KYNG ANNOUNCE TOUR DATES WITH
KILL DEVIL HILL

Pre-Order Burn The Serum At iTunes
Burn The Serum To Be Released On April 15th On Razor & Tie
Southern California rock trio KYNG announce tour dates with co-headliner Kill Devil Hill and supporting act Crobot. The tour kicks off April 28 in Atlanta, GA. The band is currently on the road with Lacuna Coil and supporting acts Eve to Adam and Nothing More (tour dates below).
KYNG is touring in support of their new studio album Burn The Serum out on April 15th through Razor & Tie. The album was produced by Andrew Alekel (Foo Fighters, No Doubt, Queens of The Stone Age, Clutch) and James A. Rota (Sound City, Fireball Ministry) and was recorded at Grandmaster Recorders LTD and Sword & Shield in Hollywood, CA as well as at Studio 606 in Northridge, CA. Pre-orders are available now at iTunes HERE and the Merch pre-order is HERE.
 Listen to “Electric Halo,” on Loudwire
Listen to “Burn The Serum” on
Revolver
On their second full-length album and first for Razor & Tie, the band harks back to the essence of heavy rock 'n' roll, forging thunderous percussion to lightning hot riffs driven by a divine vocal howl. At the same time, they keep their eyes wide open towards the future. KYNG find grandiosity in simplicity. The Los Angeles outfit may only boast three members—Eddie Veliz [vocals/guitar], Pepe Clarke [drums], and Tony Castaneda [bass/backup vocals]—but their collective roar could easily tip the Southern California Richter Scale.
Formed in 2008, KYNG broke out of the City of Angels in 2011 with the group's independent debut Trampled Sun.  The album landed shining critical acclaim for its "California Heavy" sound merging the metallic meanderings of Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age with the timeless scope of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. They hit the road with everybody from The Sword and Clutch to Trivium and Megadeth—even being picked to play at Metallica's first-ever Orion Music + More festival. Loudwire raved, “a hard hitting fusion of rocking goodness,” and Ultimate-Guitar added, “if they keep churning out records as good as Trampled Sun, they will be mentioned right up there with Mastodon and the like.”

Legendary thrash metal band EXODUS is pleased to announce their recent signing with Breaking Bands LLC and The Agency Group.

Maria asked us to join forces and manage bands together. When she told us our first project would be EXODUS there we're smiles from cheek to cheek,” adds Jon Zazula.EXODUS has been ready to explode for years and the time has come. 2014 will be the year that EXODUS blasts off to an unstoppable assent like never before. We can't wait to be part of it.”

 

Chuck Billy adds, “I’m excited to be a part of this, I am forever Bonded By Blood!”

 

 

As mentioned above, EXODUS has also signed with The Agency Group, who are known for booking some of today’s biggest and best artists. The band is proudly represented by agents Dan Rozenblum in North and South America, and Tom Taaffe in Europe and Asia.

 

Dan Rozenblum states, EXODUS remains as one of my favorite bands of all time, and words cannot describe how pleased I am that we are now able to assist the band to reach fans around the globe.”

 

Tom Taaffe adds, EXODUS is one of the most integral bands in metal music from the last thirty years. The amount of bands that they have influenced is staggering. It’s great to be working with them and it’s an exciting prospect that The Agency Group will be taking them to all corners of the globe going forward.”

WHITECHAPEL Announce "Mono" YouTube Vocal Cover Contest

                                                  

Returning with the fifth full-length of their decimating career, there is no stopping the juggernaut that is WHITECHAPEL. Our Endless War is the culmination of everything the Knoxville, Tennessee sextet have worked toward since their inception. A ruthlessly honed album that refuses to compromise on brutality, it is also by far their most streamlined, atmospheric, and emotionally powerful release, pushing every aspect of their sound to the next level.

 

In conjunction with the release of Our Endless War, WHITECHAPEL have created an online contest with their new single "Mono".   Vocalist Phil Bozeman has a video message for fans that are interested and would like to enter the contest, which can be viewed HEREThe object of the contest is that fans will film themselves doing a vocal cover of the new song "Mono" and then upload their videos to YouTube. The contest ends April 21st and the winner will be announced on April 22nd  and will receive a grand prize package that consists of: 1 Deluxe CD Bundle of Our Endless War, a 30 minute vocal coaching lesson with Phil Bozeman via Skype and their video will be featured on Phil's YouTube Channel.

 

Our Endless War will be released April 29th in North America via Metal Blade Records. Listen to the first two singles "Mono" and "The Saw is the Law" and pre-order Our Endless War in exclusive bundle packages at http://www.metalblade.com/whitechapel.


When it came to tracking the album the band considered no one beyond Mark Lewis, who helmed Whitechapel. For the artwork, the band turned again to Aaron Marsh, who supplied WHITECHAPEL with its stark, arresting imagery, but again they wanted to push things to the next level. With the sound maturing the band felt like the artwork needed to reflect that. A new logo was introduced (the old logo is classic Whitechapel, and that's not something the band plans on getting rid of) however as the band grows and changes they felt like they needed the logo to represent the maturity of WHITECHAPEL.

Leading up to the release of Our Endless War, WHITECHAPEL have confirmed a string of dates including an appearance at this year's New England Metal & Hardcore Festival.  These dates will being April 16th in Columbus, OH and run through April 27th in Birmingham, AL.  These shows feature support from Carnifex, Within the Ruins and Cruelhand.  More dates including a North American co-headlining North American tour are in the works and will be announced shortly.

POP EVIL + ESCAPE THE FATE 
ANNOUNCE CO-HEADLINING TOUR


Pop Evil, DMC, + Raycom Sports Team Up for
2014 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament
Pop Evil’s hit single “Trenches,” remixed by
DMC, Will Open ACC Network Telecasts
(NEW YORK, NY) - With a third single about to go Top Ten at commercial radio, POP EVIL will once again hit the road in support of their latest LP, "Onyx." Along side ESCAPE THE FATE, support will come from label-mates  AVATAR and GLAMOUR OF THE KILL

POP EVIL, joined by legendary artist DMC of RUN-DMC, will open each ACC NETWORK telecast of the 2014 ACC men's basketball tournament. POP EVIL's #1 single, "Trenches," has been remixed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and will be featured in the opening video montage to lead into each game.

"POP EVIL and DMC have collaborated on an impressive song that really embodies the energy and passion of the ACC Tournament," said RAYCOM SPORTS producer DAVE BARRINGER, who created the opening sequence. "'Trenches' focuses on the power to control your future, which translates well into the teams fighting their way to the prestigious ACC Championship. By customizing the lyrics, POP EVIL and DMC have captured the growth and change of the ACC Tournament and the teams, from 1954 to the present."


 
Ironically, POP EVIL's lead singer LEIGH KAKATY was a finalist for MICHIGAN's Mr. Basketball Award in high school, averaging 31 points per game as a senior at NORTH MUSKEGON High School.
 
Darryl McDaniels, known as DMC, is a pioneer of hip hop culture and a founding member of the rap group Run-DMC. The multi-platinum artist and producer was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his group in 2009.
 
They join a star-studded list of performers featured in Raycom football and basketball telecasts over the years including KISS, Rascal Flatts, tobyMac, Brooks & Dunn, Jason Aldean, Daughtry, Skillet, Sugarland, Alison Krauss, Chris Brown, Lil’ Mama, T-Pain, David Cook and Ricky Skaggs.
 
Charlotte-based Raycom Sports is a leading independent sports sales & marketing, syndication, event management and production firm. Raycom is the current syndicated television rightsholder of ACC men’s basketball and football telecasts through 2027. In a partnership with the ACC, Raycom operates the ACC Network, which distributes ACC content through live television broadcasting, original programming via digital technologies, historical archives, mobile applications, social media, ACC Championship events and the official ACC website.

MOTÖRHEAD’S MOTÖRBOAT

FEATURING MEGADETH, MOTÖRHEAD,

ANTHRAX, ZAKK WYLDE & MORE

‘The Loudest Boat In The World’ Sails from Miami to Key West and Cozumel

September 22-26 – Onboard Carnival Ecstasy

 

  

Megadeth, Motörhead, and Anthrax - three of the greatest heavy metal bands in the world - will perform at the first annual Motörhead’s Motörboat cruise onboard the Carnival Ecstasy from September 22-26, 2014. In addition to these three rock giants, “The Loudest Boat In The World” will also feature performances from Zakk Wylde, Jim Breuer, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, Wilson, and some big surprises…more bands to be announced soon.

Motörhead’s Motörboat will sail from Miami, visiting the ports of Key West, Florida and Cozumel just off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. While onboard, guests will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with band members and will see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship. 

Tickets for Motörhead’s Motörboat go on sale Tuesday, March 18 at Noon ET. The event website--www.MotorheadCruise.com--will launch later this week with full details and cabin pricing. 

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister proclaims, "This will be everything you've come to expect from a night out with us, except even louder, with more great bands and no way of escaping! If you thought waves could rock a boat, you've got another thing coming with this lovely little outing!"

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine says, “There never has and never will be another cruise like Motörboat cruise. Come on a thrashing voyage with Motörhead, Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde and all Lemmy's friends. This is the coolest way to ever see a metal concert.”

Scott Ian of Anthrax adds, “Anthrax, Motörhead and Megadeth at sea??? To quote Chief Brody [Jaws], ‘We're going to need a bigger boat.’”

“It's truly an honor to partner with one of the most iconic bands in rock music to deliver a one of a kind fan experience for ‘Motorheadbangers’ from around the globe,” says event producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment.

Motörhead--the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time--released their mammoth 21st studio album Aftershock in October 2013. Aftershock is one of Motörhead’s best-selling and highest-charting albums in 20 years, debuting at #22 on the Billboard 200. Through tenacity, hard work, and a deep-seated ability to produce an original, face-melting sound, Motörhead--Lemmy Kilmister (bass, vocals), Phil Campbell (guitar) and Mikkey Dee (drums)--has become one of the most popular bands in the world with a fanbase that is second to none. www.imotorhead.com

In a career nearing 30 years, heavy metal titans Megadeth have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning five consecutive platinum albums and numerous accolades along the way, including 11 Grammy nominations.  The band’s latest studio album, Super Collider, features vocalist/guitarist/founder Dave Mustaine once again reunited with guitarist Chris Broderick, bassist David Ellefson, and drummer Shawn Drover.  Released in June 2013, Super Collider debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, Megadeth’s highest chart debut since 1994’s Youthanasia. In April, Megadeth is set to embark on a world tour in over 25 countries across four continents. The tour follows a first-ever performance at Copley Symphony Hall on April 12, where Dave Mustaine will collaborate with the San Diego Symphony. www.megadeth.com

Since the September 2011 release of Worship Music, five-time Grammy-nominated Anthrax has experienced a tremendous comeback. “Classic era” vocalist Joey Belladonna rejoined the lineup in the spring of 2010, fronting for the band on The Big Four shows across Europe, at NY’s Yankee Stadium and at the SoCal Coachella site. In 2012, Anthrax--Joey Belladonna (vocals), Scott Ian (guitar), Charlie Benante (drums) and Frank Bello (bass)--became the first metal band to have its music played on Mars when its "Got The Time" was chosen by NASA to wake up the Mars RoverThe band is currently writing and demoing new material for the follow up to Worship Music that is expected out late 2014/early 2015. www.anthrax.com

The Carnival Ecstasy, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment, features a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area, multiple dining options (including a 24-hour pizzeria), 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival health club, a jogging track, as well as 12 lounges, bars and nightspots.

Interview with Don Jamieson from VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show"

Don Jamieson is pictured center with Eddie Trunk pictured left and Jim Florentine pictured right

Feb 14 - Season 13 of "That Metal Show"  (11pm Saturday nights on VH1 Classic) is well underway and once again the guests that have been on the show so far are some of the biggest stars in metal.  Ted Nugent, Sevendust, Avenged Sevenfold, Frank Bello, Dave Ellefson, Living Colour, Zaak Wylde, and Five Finger Death Punch all have been interviewed by the trio of Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson.

Don took a few minutes today to answer a couple quick questions about the show and his latest comedy album.

Musicfrenzy -  How's it feel to have the show back in NYC??  
Don Jamieson -  So far, so great!  I look out into the crowd and it's like being back at L'Amour in 1986.

MF -  This week's guests are Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge.  Alter Bridge has a new album out this year and will tour and of course Myles and Slash just had a killer album.  Cool show??  
Don -  One of my favorite of the season so far.  Was gonna be hard to top the Ted Nugent show but this one's damn pretty good too.

MF - The guests you guys have had on so far have been epic.  Chris Adler and Randy Blythe from Lamb of God appear on the Feb 22nd show.  Kiss originals Ace and Peter are on an upcoming show.  What else can us diehards expect for the rest of season 13?  
Don -  Just a great mix of new and old as you can see from the artists you mentioned.  Plus we're still hooking up around the world via the Metal Modem with bands like Scorpions, Manowar & Halestorm.

MF - Season 13!  Who do you personally want to see on the show that hasn't been on yet? 
Don -  Would love to have Angus & Malcolm on.  They're so tiny they could both sit in one chair!

MF - You have a new comedy album coming out on March 18th and it even has a metal title (Hell Bent for Laughter).  What topics are hit on this album? 
Don -  I did a lot of hard rock & metal humor for the TMS fans but there's plenty of other comedic goodies (sex, politics, missing limbs) for everyone.

MF - I'm thinking about hitting the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ tomorrow night (February 15) to catch you, Eddie and Jim.  What are we in for from you guys?  I know Jim is doing a set but what else is happening?  I heard special guests may hop on stage too?  
Don -  Ed will tell some funny rock n' roll stories, Jim & I will tell some dirty jokes, our buddy Mark Tornillo from Accept will stop by for a chat and then some uncensored q&a about any and all things hard rock & heavy metal. We've done this stage show a bunch of times and it's great fun.

MF - I saw you at Metallica's first Orion Music and More Festival in AC and I see this year you'll be performing at Rock on the Range.  That's gotta be a cool gig because you can hit so many people in one night, or over the whole weekend, with your comedy huh?  
Don - It's the kind of gig almost no comedian would ever want.  To me it's the perfect one!
