MINDWARS Sign With Dissonance Productions & New Album “Do Unto Others” Set For 2018 



Mike and the boys are hard at work completing the new album and preparing themselves for its launch in 2018.

MINDWARS was created in the fall of 2013 by the desire of two individuals who wanted to bring the sound of metal from the 1980s to the current power of today. Mike Alvord formerly of HOLY TERROR and Roby Vitari formerly of HEADCRASHER and JESTER BEAST, met by chance in 1989 when HOLY TERROR was touring Europe in support of their 1988 release Mind Wars.

Approximately 25 years later Mike and Roby reconnected through the internet and discussed creating something musically that they both believe has been lost. The result is MINDWARS, a rebirth of speed/thrash metal with metal, punk, and rock influences. MINDWARS have released two full-length albums, “THE ENEMY WITHIN” and “SWORN TO SECRECY”. The later was mixed and mastered with legendary metal producer BILL METOYER. Bill’s credits include the likes of Slayer, Dark Angel, D.R.I. Fates Warning, and dozens more!


MINDWARS are:
MIKE Alvord - GUITAR/VOCALS
Mike was absent from the music scene since the demise of Holy Terror in 1989. However, he has since reemerged and has a vault of musical diversities and plans to continue unleashing this sound with MINDWARS.

ROBY Vitari - DRUMS
Roby has been a staple in the Italian music scene for over thirty years. He has toured Europe extensively playing drums for various bands and recording dozens of records. His musical credits extend to studio work as an engineer and producer.

DANNY “Z” Pizzi- BASS
Danny provides the pounding heart beat and solidifies the rhythm section along with his Italian cohort Roby. He has been active in the music scene since 1990 playing in many rock/metal bands in the Turin area.

Mike Alvord / Mindwars comments:
“I am ecstatic to be working with everyone at Dissonance and stoked to be part of their family! With Do Unto Others, I hope to continue the aggressive drive of the music so many of us love! Speed Kills!!!

Steve Beatty / Dissonance Productions comments:
I’m so excited to have Mindwars on the label! I really like their previous two albums and was always a big fan of Holy Terror. I expect the new album to elevate the band to new heights and hope to see these guys hit the road in 2018!

Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

INTERVIEW: Mutation (with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews)

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 


Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews. The trio is completed by drummer known as Denzel (Dean Pearson) who has been involved in many projects with Ginger and plays in Young Legionnaire. I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.



As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…

REVIEW: A Killer's Confession - Unbroken

A Killer's Confession is led by former Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis. The album was recorded in Kentucky, and the anticipated debut comes thanks to David Ellefson of Megadeth’s EMP Label Group. For their debut, they enlisted some friend's and exciting guests appearances to add to the intrigue which raises the stakes high for their first offering...

Opening track 'Awakening' is a short and unhinged scene setter for what lies ahead. Stand out track and latest single 'Rebirth' is atmospheric, melodic and consuming with prominent bass and powerful drums.

The first single self-named title track, 'A Killer's Confession' features none other than Brian 'Head' Welch from Korn on guitar. It sounds strange and eerie through the use of electronic sounds and is a must hear. This is one menacing and crushing track which wouldn't sound out of place on an actual Korn album.

The second half of the album treats us to more guest collaborations with '…
