IN FLAMES Drop Surprise Covers EP & Kick Off EU Tour!

IN FLAMES Release Surprise Covers EP Featuring 'Wicked Game' & Start EU Tour!

Gothenburg-based metal heavyweights IN FLAMES surprise fans with a four-track covers EP Down, Wicked & No Good out now worldwide ahead of their SOLD OUT hometown show at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden on 17th November. Download or stream the EP here:

To debut their cover of DEPECHE MODE’s 1997 hit single 'It’s No Good', IN FLAMES are took over DEPECHE MODE’s Facebook page on 17th November, releasing exclusive content and a new video for the song - watch it here:

The panoptic covers collection also includes IN FLAMES' versions of ALICE IN CHAINS’ 'Down In A Hole,' CHRIS ISAAK’s 'Wicked Game,' and a live bonus version of NINE INCH NAILS 'Hurt'. It sees the Swedish quintet expanding beyond metal to incorporate the group’s varied musical taste and expansive sonic range.

“We’ve been fans of DEPECHE MODE since we were as young as 10. Getting to do our rendition of ‘It’s No Good’ showed us a different side of the song – it brought new meanings to us. We relate to the lyrics and power of the song so heavily that it almost feels as if we could have written it ourselves. They’re a band that we’ve always looked up to. Growing up, you either listened to Pop, Synths or Rock and even though we are a metal band, DEPECHE MODE inspired a lot of the electronic elements we use in our music today.”

Earlier this week, IN FLAMES kicked off a 25 date co-Headline arena tour with American heavyweights, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and special guests OF MICE & MEN in Helsinki. Watch an exclusive clip from the show here:

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

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…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

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…
