36 CRAZYFISTS Announce New Album 'Lanterns' Out September 29






36 CRAZYFISTS Reveal New Album 'Lanterns' Out September Via Spinefarm Records & Debut New Song 'Death Eater'




Alaska's 36 CRAZYFISTS will release their deeply personal new album Lanterns on September 29 through Spinefarm Records. It is their second release for the label and the follow up to 2014's Time and Trauma.



Music often functions as that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel and provides shelter during any storm and calm in the middle of tumult. 36 Crazyfists understand this phenomenon firsthand. In fact, the Anchorage quartet—Brock Lindow [vocals], Steve Holt [guitar], Mick Whitney [bass], and Kyle Baltus [drums]—find catharsis within chaos on their aptly titled seventh full-length.



The band has shared the first track from the record in the form of "Death Eater." Listen to the song here.



About releasing "Death Eater" into the wild, Lindow said, "It's a reflection of self and the dwellings of rock bottom, discovering the tools to dig yourself out, and refusing to let yourself free fall into the abyss of hopelessness. Love, forgive, and never give in. In fact, Lanterns is about the fight within us all... forever refusing to sink."


Lanterns is available for pre-order here https://SpinefarmRecords.lnk.to/GOFsU





36 Crazyfists will spend August and September on tour in the US with UK dates to be announced shortly.



LANTERNS TRACK LISTING:

"Death Eater"

"Wars to Walk Away From"

"Better to Burn"

"Damaged Under Sun"

"Sea and Smoke"

"Where Revenge Ends"

"Sleepsick"

"Bandage for

“ Promise"

"Laying Hands"

"Below The Graves"

"Old Gold"

"Dark Corners"

Pop Punk Quartet SHADED Reveal New Single And Announce Forthcoming EP








SHADED Release New Single 'Better With You' And Reveal New EP Details



Surrey born pop punk quartet SHADED revealed their new single 'Better With You' earlier this week. The single is taken from the bands forthcoming EP release 'The Better Man In Me', due for release on the 1st September 2017.

The song title and it’s lyrics both revolve around and portray the idea of missing a relationship, whether it be intimate or a friendship, and the feeling of regret that comes with that. You can listen to it now here below..

URL: https://soundcloud.com/dominopr/shadeduk-better-with-you-single










SHADED are something slightly different to your run of the mill pop punk. Think of the guitar riffs and vocal melodies of a State Champs track, throw in some WSTR style drums and the pop vibes of a 5 Seconds Of Summer single, and you've got yourself the new SHADED EP in a nutshell.

"If, somehow, even just a few people can relate to and connect with our music, we’ll be over the moon." explains vocalist Matt East. "If you like emotive pop punk with catchy melodies and hooks, supported by hard-hitting riffs and big chorus’, you’ll probably find us in your little sister’s playlist."




LIVE DATES:
JULY
23rd - The Black Heart, London - Supporting The Decoy
AUGUST
12th - Burned-Out Festival, The Anvil, Bournemouth




'The Better Man In Me' track listing:
1) Better With You
2) Here’s To Starting Again
3) Tendencies (The Times I Caved) [Feat. Miles Kent]
4) Too Far Distant
5) Bitter Cold
6) Deal My Hand

WHITECHAPEL released their sixth full-length, 'Mark of the Blade', worldwide via Metal Blade Records on June, 24th last year. The album entered the official album charts in the USA (#15), Germany (#16), Canada (#22), Austria (#36) and Switzerland (#64).

You can listen to songs and watch videos from 'Mark of the Blade' at: http://metalblade.com/whitechapel/ where the record can also be ordered in various formats.

Reunited with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse), WHITECHAPEL has redefined who they are and what they are capable of with their new album, 'Mark of the Blade'. Kicking off with 'The Void' - which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band's three-guitar attack - the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on 'Decennium' bring the record to a close, it's impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear.

Never Say Die Announce Name Change To DEADSET SOCIETY



Never Say Die New




Never Say Die Change Band Name To Deadset Society




Charting Hard Rock newcomers Never Say Die have announced a sudden name change to DEADSET SOCIETY. The band featuring members of Platinum selling group My Darkest Days decided on the change after receiving notice of trademark infringement and pending legal action from UK based electronic music label Never Say Die Records.

The band’s front man released a statement:

“It is with heavy hearts we must announce changing our band name due to a trademark infringement with UK label Never Say Die Records. In less than a year and against the odds we've played nearly 100 shows, attained hundreds of thousands of online streams, and more success at radio than we could've ever imagined as an independent rock band. We are grateful for each and every one of you who listen to, share, and connect with our music. You make it possible for us to chase our dreams. You are the life blood of this band. Together, we will overcome. Thank you for your continued support. Our last & final name is DEADSET SOCIETY.” – Reid Henry

Along with the recent signing to FM Music Management, the band plans to continue heavily touring throughout the U.S. in support of their debut album Creleased independently early this year.

Vixen Vocalist Janet Gardner To Release Debut Solo Album 18th August






Janet Gardner To Release Debut Solo Album 




As the lead vocalist of the legendary female rock band Vixen, Janet Gardner's powerful vocals propelled Vixen to the top of the Billboard charts with crossover hits "Edge of a Broken Heart" and "Cryin’'" and AOR rockers "How Much Love" and "Love is a Killer." Vixen toured extensively, grinding out 200 shows per year, opening for the likes of Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne, The Scorpions, Kiss, and Bon Jovi.

In an era primarily dominated by male rock musicians, Vixen's all-female line up didn't come without its struggles. But their undeniable musicianship, matched with Gardner's unique and powerful vocal style, propelled the band quickly to Gold Album status and earned the band critically acclaimed success that is still celebrated to this day on the likes of Sirius XM, MTV/VH-1 Classic, and nationally syndicated specialty radio shows. Vixen, along with their predecessors, helped pave the way for the current wave and success of female-fronted acts such as Halestorm, In This Moment, The Pretty Reckless, and many others.

Teaming up with guitarist/songwriter/producer Justin James (who has worked with members of Staind, Collective Soul, and Tyketto), Gardner ventured into the solo realm to unleash a new side of her musical creativity. Together, Janet and Justin have penned a collection of emotionally charged songs with gritty grooves, infectious hooks, and inspired lyrics that merge hard rock influences from the last four decades.

The result is a perfect blend of modern hard rock with a touch of old school flare that will turn the heads of generations of rock fans. A sample teaser was put up on YouTube and literally exploded overnight. The power duo was quickly snatched up by Pavement Entertainment with a full-length release coming on August 18, 2017.

Janet Gardner has once again proven herself as a leader in the female-fronted hard rock world.

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY ANNOUNCE BRAND NEW ALBUM!







CAVALERA CONSPIRACY Announce New Album "Psychosis' Out November 17th




CAVALERA CONSPIRACY led by brothers and founding SEPULTURA members Max and Iggor Cavalera have unveiled first details about the release of their fourth studio album titled "Psychosis". The upcoming record is set for release on November 17th 2017 on Napalm Records and is produced by longtime friend Arthur Rizk in Phoenix, Arizona.

Max Cavalera in a recent interview with Metal Wani:
"The album right now is finished. It was produced by Arthur Rizk, our friend and a great producer - an upcoming, underground producer. And he did a great job. I love the record. There are nine songs. We've got one song with Justin from GODFLESH - just a great NAILBOMB, GODFLESH, CAVALERA kind of song. The rest is all pure thrash madness. And we had it mastered a couple of days ago by Joel Grind from TOXIC HOLOCAUST; he mastered the album. And it's great, man. It's a beast of an album. I think a lot of people are are gonna be surprised when they hear it. It's, for me, the best of all the CAVALERA albums, my favorite one. And it's got the same intensity and energy of the old stuff like 'Beneath The Remains' and 'Arise'. So a lot of people are gonna be happy to hear that."


Just recently Max and Iggor have also left a message to their fans and the worldwide metal community with a first teaser and greetings from the studio. Check it out right HERE!

The brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera formed the legendarily trailblazing heavy metal band SEPULTURA as teenagers together in 1984. Across six studio albums the Brazilian punishers perfected the art of darkness and extreme music with thrash classics such as Beneath the Remains, Arise and Chaos AD, while exploring the underbelly of third world political issues and broadening the genre's horizons with an exploration of indigenous culture, culminating with the landmark Roots album in 1996. A decade after Max left SEPULTURA and meanwhile released seven successful records with SOULFLY, the two brothers got back together in 2006 to form CAVALERA CONSPIRACY: A bold testament to the talent and power these two possess together. An invigorating mixture of speed and aggression, finest thrash power and the fiercest riffage.

Get ready for one of the most heaviest and hotly anticipated metal records of 2017, coming this November on Napalm Records, when the mighty CAVALERA CONSPIRACY will strike back this Fall!

Tethra's New Album 'Like Crows For The Earth' Is Out Now In The US





Tethra's New Album “Like Crows for The Earth” Is Out Now In America Via Sliptrick Records



Tethra’s full-length album, “Like Crows for The Earth”, which was recorded and mixed by Matt Stancioiu (Labyrinth) at Elnor Studios and mastered by Greg Chandles (Esoteric) at Priory Studios. reveals how much the band has evolved sonically since their 2013 album, "Drown into the Sea of Life". The album was released in Europe on February 11th via Sliptrick Records, and is now unleashed in the US, as it came out on July 23rd.

Tethra produces elements such as acoustic breaks, striking solos and Doom-influenced melodies are mixed with charismatic vocals courtesy of the versatile frontman Clode Tethra. Blending gloomy Doom Metal, raging Death Metal and melodic early 90s Gothic Metal tinged vocals, Tethra will be the last nail on your cross.

The frontman explains: “In terms of songwriting, the lyrics have become more intimate on “Like Crows for The Earth”, focusing on topics such as loss, solitude and feelings of rejection. The album also deals with social issues, such as mankind’s indiscriminate exploitation of the Earth, metaphorically represented by the crow: if not stopped, this animal poses an undeniable threat to its ecosystem and is bound to destroy all other species.”


Check out the lyric video for their latest song 'The Groundfeeder':








Tracklist for "Like Crows For The Earth":

01. Resilience (Intro)
02. Transcending Thanatos
03. Prelude to Sadness
04. Springtime Melancholy
05. Deserted
06. Subterranean (Interlude)
07. The Groundfeeder
08. Entropy
09. Synchronicity of Life and Decay
10. Earthless

Tethra last month (June 8th) played a special 'closed doors' live streamed show on Facebook, with just them in the venue and as well as streaming it live they left the video up for 24 hours to give others a chance to see it and raise awareness to support the metal genre as well as the important issue of small venues closing.

Tethra are passionate about emerging artists and they were on a mission to increase the numbers of people that attend smaller, club sized venues in not just Italy, but on a worldwide scale, stating:

"In recent years, many small and medium-sized clubs dedicated to metal music have closed or changed their genre because of the low attendance at the concerts.

It's a global phenomenon that, if it does not have a clear turnabout, will oblige all industry employees to make drastic decisions."


Post the event the band said:

"Thanks to you for watching our closed doors show, we hope to have you reflected on the bad situation of our favourite music and something can change quickly...before it's too late."




'Like Crows For The Earth' is out now in Europe/UK and the US via Sliptrick Records.

THY ART IS MURDER Release New Video For "The Son of Misery"










THY ART IS MURDER Release New Video 


THY ART IS MURDER will release their punishing new album Dear Desolation on August 18 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

The Australian band has just dropped another sonic thunderbolt from the album in the form of the fiery video for "The Son of Misery." Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XY9NobTtFg

About Dear Desolation, vocalist C.J. McMahon said, "I feel the strongest I've ever felt going into a record. Coming back to the fold of our band has reinvigorated me. I missed my brothers, touring, and of course all our dedicated fans around the world who have always given us their all. This new record is going to shape our future; we gave it everything we could and then some. In the past, I was the weakest link and now that I have re-built myself, we are stronger than ever and nothing can stand in our way."

Adds guitarist Andy Marsh, "Hate, War, Desolation; the trilogy series of the path mankind has laid out before himself. We are prouder than ever of our efforts on this record. A lot of time, planning, creativity and teamwork has culminated in what we think is our most completed vision yet: Dear Desolation."

Regardless of your take on black metal forefathers VENOM, they are the undisputed originators of extreme metal as we know it. Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989-1992 line-up of guitarist Jeff "Mantas" Dunn, vocalist/bassist Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan and drummer Anthony "Abaddon" Bray have returned with a monster of an album.

VENOM INC. was born during an impromptu live set at 2015's Keep it True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. The on-stage reunion was a rousing success amongst VENOM fans and music industry personnel alike, and although it was originally only set up for fun, Dolan began receiving numerous show offers for VENOMINC. from booking agents around the world. What started as a live set to celebrate VENOM's legacy immediately turned into a serious reunion discussion. The rest is history.

Going in to writing Avé, VENOM INC. realized their live performance was the key to creating an album that would be a metal classic. It was clear that any songs the trio came up with had to have the intensity, the honesty and the aggression that was happening for VENOM INC. in a live situation. Simply put, they needed to translate what they do on stage onto a record. Not once did they look back on the VENOM catalogue and think, "We have to write another 'Black Metal' or another 'Schizo'…" The focus is on VENOM INC. and everything the rejuvenated three-piece do in the here and now.

While unexpected at the outset, the end result of this reunion is an album that true VENOM fans will gladly add to the top of their playlists.

Avé - Track Listing:

01. Ave Satanas
02. Forged In Hell
03. Metal We Bleed
04. Dein Fleisch
05. Blood Stained
06. Time To Die
07. The Evil Dead
08. Preacher Man
09. War

11. Black N Roll

After releasing the first single 'Pilli on pajusta tehty (live)', the band has now revealed the first trailer.

After hearing the title of the package, it's easy to conclude that it was recorded at the identically named festival in Vizovice, Czech Republic. But there's even more to be excited about, this release doesn't just include KORPIKLAANI's show from 2016, it even has a second full show from 2014 as bonus feature. The 2016 concert features guest appearances from Tero Hyväluoma (additional fiddler) as well as Toni Perttula (additional accordion player), Sami's identical twin brother. Mixing of Live at Masters of Rock was handled by front man Jonne Järvelä himself, mastering was done by Svante Forsbäck (RAMMSTEIN etc.)

Jonne comments, "This our first ever DVD release, which we are quite proud of. It has no backing tracks, no choirs, no samples, all the mistakes are included. It is just us, KORPIKLAANI, pure live rock 'n' roll."
He also adds, "I spent a lot of time during the mastering process with Svante Forsbäck who recently handled the RAMMSTEIN mastering and we worked hard to achieve the right ambience and crowd sound. So when you turn it up loud, it feels like you are right there in the middle."

Sami adds, "For us, our bigger shows means more folk musicians, which are much cheaper than pyro, for example my brother agreed to this show for a few beers and he doesn't even drink much!"

Linkin Park Vocalist Chester Bennington Dies Age 41




Chester Bennington Dies By Suicide Age 41



Chester Bennington of the hugely popular and influential rock band Linkin Park has sadly died aged 41. Linkin Park were pioneers of nu-metal with their momentous debut album 'Hybrid Theory' and since their formation in 1996 have become one of the biggest modern day rock bands, having sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and winning two Grammy Awards amongst their many accolades.

The LA County Coroner says said Bennington apparently hanged himself. His body was found at a private home in the county at 09:00 local time (17:00 GMT) on Thursday (20th July 2017).

Bennington was said to be close friends to Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell, who took his own life in May.

Bennington leaves a wife, and six children from two marriages.

He is said to have struggled for years with alcohol and drug abuse, and has talked in the past about suicide as a result of being a victim of abuse as a child.


This is a massive and deeply sad and shocking loss for the rock industry. Bennington was an impressive and unique vocalist and Linkin Park influenced so many metal heads and musicians, as their early work was a gateway into the rock/metal scene for so many (myself included). He will be extremely missed and well remembered.

The band was currently
on its “One More Light” world tour.



R.I.P Chester you will be missed. Thank you for all that you done and all the great music and inspiration.

These bonus tracks originate from the time when RAGE was still called AVENGER. Peavy comments: "It was really nice to re-record the songs from my first years of being a musician! I remember quite well how the songs were created. I always thought that it's a pity that most of the people don't know these songs, just because they were released with another band name. For me it was always clear that these songs are kind of timeless and when we played them together it was really awesome! Back then, we couldn't realise our ideas as good as today. When you listen to the new recordings you will recognize how fantastic these songs really are!"
