Sólstafir temporarily joined live by Árstíðir keyboarder Ragnar Ólafsson


When SÓLSTAFIR asked their friends and label mates, ÁRSTÍÐIR to join them on their current European tour, the Icelanders had of course no strings attached. As it turns out, there are some keys in it though...

ÁRSTÍÐIR keyboarder Ragnar Ólafsson has happily accepted to give a helping hand or rather two to the enigmatic Icelandic rockers. This is of course a temporary arrangement, so don't miss your chance to see this special touring line-up on the road right now.

As shows have already been sold out and tickets are running low in others venues, we strongly recommend to book in advance.

SÓLSTAFIR have successfully embarked on the second leg of their 2017 European tour. The enigmatic Icelandic rockers have been joined by MYRKUR and Icelandic label mates ÁRSTÍÐIR. The final curtain of this massive journey will fall at Debaser Strand in Stockholm, Sweden on the 20th of December.

MYLES KENNEDY - signs with Napalm Records! First solo album "Year Of The Tiger" will be released in Spring 2018!

f.l.t.r.: Billie Klein (Napalm Records), Myles Kennedy, Tim Tournier (Manager)

He is the distinctive voice of Alter Bridge. He as well gained incredible recognition with being the voice of Slash's back band Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. He jammed with members of Led Zeppelin, he worked with the best of the best... he is undeniably one of the greatest rock singers of our time.  

After the successful collaboration between Alter Bridge and Napalm Records, Myles Kennedy as well decided to sign with the Austrian label to release his long awaited first solo album.  

Myles states:
“I’m excited to announce I’m teaming up with Napalm Records for the release of my first solo record YEAR OF THE TIGER. This record is something I’ve always wanted to make and I’m grateful to Napalm for believing in me enough to get behind it.”

Napalm Records' whole staff is super excited and more than proud about teaming up with this incredible talented artist. "Year Of The Tiger" is scheduled for Spring 2018. 


PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS release first track and details of new album


PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS are announcing the release of their sophomore full-length, 'Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue'  through the singer's label Housecore in the Americas and in licence via Season of Mist in other parts of the world on January 26th, 2018.


PHILIP H. ANSELMO comments: "Our new album, 'Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue' is going to get hated. It's going to get loved. Like every record, I've ever done, I put zero expectations upon my peers, critics, or the general fucking public. If you take one thing away from it, let it be this: Do not bog yourself down to one brand, character, or whatever. Have the guts to spread your wings and fucking flourish. I can promise you this is a beginning. As my music trickles out over the next two years, it's going to be quite the roller coaster ride. This new ILLEGALS is just the tip of the whole fucking avalanche."

The line-up of the THE ILLEGALS has changed on several position since album one. This is what Phil has to say about his new crew: "Their creative input is fucking fantastic. This is something that was very different from the first record where I was very staunch. I wanted it to be ugly. I was very firm that I was writing every fucking note. The thought was, 'This is my contribution to ugly music right this second in a heavy metal vein.' That was great at the time. 'Walk Through Exits Only' made its own little statement that I am a free agent and I belong to no single band. This time, I worked closely with everyone. We tried different ideas together. It made the spirit of this thing come alive even more because of the enthusiasm these guys bring. It enhanced the integrity of the project."

On further news, PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS are also releasing artwork and album details of 'Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue', which can be viewed below.

Track-list
1. Little Fucking Heroes
2. Utopian
3. Choosing Mental Illness
4. The Ignorant Point
5. Individual
6. Delinquent
7. Photographic Taunts
8. Finger Me
9. Invalid Colubrine Frauds
10. Mixed Lunatic Results


PHILIP H. ANSELMO is an iconic artist – maybe a little bruised, scarred, singed, and somewhat battered by time, himself, and others. But the Texan remains proudly standing, unbent, and still angry. Loved and hated, attacked and praised, Phil is not ready to go down into the archives of musical history without a fight.

His new cooperation with the band that Phil himself created, THE ILLEGALS, is as brutal, kicking, lashing, and fury-filled as one could expect from this artist and PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS' debut 'Walk Through Exits Only' (2013). Their sophomore album, 'Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue' is a much the metaphorical fist in the face and display of force as his adherents could wish for.

'Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue' is not a simple repeat of the past – as tempting as that might sound, considering that no other artist left a deeper mark on metal in the 90's than PANTERA. Raging, roaring, and bulldozing their way through the metal scene, the Texans have left a lasting legacy. At their front stood anger and hostility personified, PHILIP H. ANSELMO. What followed for example with DOWN and SUPERJOINT RITUAL has further cemented the singer's reputation as a living legend. As an artist in his own right, Phil finally emancipated onto a solo-path with 'Walk Through Exits Only', which enabled him to do exactly as he pleased – with no need to compromise on anything.

Now, 'Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue' follows along the path that PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS' debut has carved, but takes the mega-heavy, angry monster born out of mating the visceral aggression and power of PANTERA with the devastating thrash and Southern sludge that Phil and the New Orleans scene pioneered. 

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS are back and about to mercilessly install 'Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue' as a new benchmark for extreme heaviness.

DESTRUCTION - Thrash Anthems II

“Thrash Anthems II”

Release Date: 10th November 2017

Label: Nuclear Blast

Country: Germany

Genre: thrash metal

Tracklist:
1. Confused Mind
2. Black Mass
3. Front Beast
4. Dissatisfied Existence
5. United By Hatred
6. The Ritual
7. Black Death
8. The Antichrist
9. Confound Games
10. Ripping You Off Blind
11. Satan’s Vengeance
12. Holiday In Cambodia

Thrash Anthems II giunge a 10 anni di distanza dal primo volume, ed è una celebrazione della carriera dei Destruction, attivi ormai da 35 anni.
L’album consta di 11 classici della band risuonati e ri-registrati, il periodo è quello che va dal mini “Sentence Of Death” (1984) fino a “Cracked Brain” (1990), ma sono presenti anche due brani tratti dal demo “Bestial Invasion Of Hell” e mai più riproposti, precisamente “Front Beast” e “Antichrist”.

In genere io sono contrario a queste operazioni di restyling ultimamente tanto in voga (vedi il “Purple Album” dei Whitesnake o “Heavy Metal Thunder” dei Saxon, lavori che dopo un ascolto ho subito archiviato) ma in questo caso il risultato paga. Una produzione perfetta, suoni finalmente puliti e gli innegabili progressi tecnici dei tedeschi permettono alle varie “Black Mass”, “Satan’s Vengeance” e”The Ritual” di risultare decisamente superiori alle versioni originali, in cui i suoni erano alquanto grezzi e la tecnica assai limitata. 
A trarre i maggiori benefici sono le parti vocali di Schmier, ben più mature ed efficaci rispetto ai latrati che ascoltavamo 30 anni fa! A completare il tutto troviamo l’inedita cover di “Holyday In Cambodia” dei Dead Kennedys, resa in una versione violentissima, in linea con la proposta del trio tedesco, ma senza snaturarne lo spirito punk. 

Insomma, un prodotto di sicuro interesse sia per i “nuovi adepti” sia per chi già possiede i vetusti vinili originali.

ARKONA RELEASE TEASER FROM UPCOMING ALBUM! Khram To Be Released In January 2018!


Russia's leading and finest pagan metal band ARKONA, who are set to release their brand new album Khram on January 19th 2018 with Napalm Records, have just unveiled a first teaser and exclusive album preview!


A Khram, the Russian word for temple, is shrouded in natural mysticism slumbering behind nocturnal treetops, yet open to everyone. The sincerity and depth that binds all five band members together resonates in the sumptuously dark cover artwork and frontlady Masha`s lyrics, that are written in her own blood (which is also part of the artwork)! ARKONA may have used sound samples in their early days, but nowadays cellos, brass parts, wind instruments and throat singing are recorded live meticulously and flow naturally into the band's harsh metal tunes: King-sized songs effortlessly shift from blackened pagan metal masterpieces to epic tracks with crystal-clear melodies and piano infusions. So better mark your calendars for January 19th 2018, as ARKONA’s Khram is an exuberant and demanding affair that defies genre boundaries with untamable spirit!

Coming as CD Digi Pack, Digital Download and LP Gatefold editions, Khram is now available to pre-order HERE!

Track List:
1. Mantra (Intro)
2. Shtorm
3. Tseluya zhizn'
4. Rebionok bez imeni
5. Khram
6. V pogonie za beloj ten'yu
7. V ladonyah bogov
8. Volchitsa
9. Mantra (Outro)


Heilung sign to Season of Mist


Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of HEILUNG. The enigmatic Danish trio will release its next album as well as reissue of their debut full-length, 'Ofnir' through Season of Mist.

HEILUNG comment: "We are very grateful for the opportunity to work with Season of Mist. They give us the possibility to be artistically independent, and respect the spiritual nature of our art."


HEILUNG have furthermore released a pro-shot of their full stunning live show, 'LIFA', which was recorded at Castlefest 2017 and can be viewed at the following link: https://tinyurl.com/y8cxmhqz

HEILUNG means "healing" in the German language and this also describes the core of the band's sound. The listener is supposed to be left at ease and in a relaxed state after a magical musical journey that is at times turbulent.

HEILUNG reaches far back in time to the Northern European iron age and Viking period to create their sound experience. The band utilises many means – from running water via human bones, reconstructed swords and shields up to ancient frame drums as well as bronze rings – in their songs.

HEILUNG's lyrics contain original texts from rune stones, preserved spear shafts, amulets, and other ancient artifacts. Furthermore the band uses poems, which either deal with historical events or are translations and interpretations of the original texts.

HEILUNG have self-released their debut full-length, 'Ofnir' in 2015 and a live album, entitled 'LIFA' in 2017.

Any attempt to link the band with or bring their music into a modern political or religious context is pointless, since HEILUNG try to connect their listeners with a time before the coming of Christianity and modern political ideologies.

Moonspell - 1755

"1755"

Release Date: on November 3rd 2017 

Label: Napalm Records

Country: Portugal
Genre: gothic metal

Track list:
1. Em Nome Do Medo
2. 1755
3. In Tremor Dei ( featuring Portuguese guest vocalist Paulo Bragança! )
4. Desastre
5. Abanão
6. Evento
7. 1 De Novembro
8. Ruínas
9. Todos Os Santos
10. Lanterna Dos Afogados



Oscura, potente…e fedele alla propria terra. Ciò che rende grande una band non è la musica, ma ciò che può essere rappresentato attraverso di essa.

1755 è l’album che pone sul tetto più alto del mondo i Moonspell. L’evoluzione di quel suono che ha reso unica questa band in un disco dal sapore medio orientale. Indefinibile, unico, perverso. La sublime orchestrazione del male che si pone esattamente a metà strada tra i vecchi Moonspell e quelli che verranno.
L’espressività vocale del loro leader maximo Fernando Ribeiro, che non ha mai latitato una sola volta in carriera, oggi sembra ancora più lugubre, un effimero viandante che si immerge nelle profondità del black metal creando un legame imprescindibile.
I riff pesanti che si aprono su sezioni sinfoniche rappresentano l’identità primordiale del gruppo portoghese, un sound compatto che sposa melodie e potenza e dove ogni strumento è in grado di catturarne ogni singolo istante.

Tempi veloci, un’ottima esecuzione di basso e l’imponente lavoro delle chitarre immortalate nelle tracce “Desastre” e In Tremor Dei" accentuano la vena dark, mentre l’uso degli strumenti della tradizione portoghese ne esaltano il gusto folk.

L’intero album è una sorta di rappresentazione teatrale di un mondo sull'orlo del baratro che alla fine si salverà. In una parola...capolavoro!

AN EVENING WITH KNIVES FIRMANO PER ARGONAUTA RECORDS


Siamo elettrizzati di dare il benvenuto nella famiglia ARGONAUTA RECORDS agli AN EVENING WITH KNIVES da Eindhoven, un mesmerizzante e imponente muro di suono, capace di elevarsi al di sopra delle barriere del post-metal, rock psichedelico e del doom metal.

PANZER - The Fatal Command

"The Fatal Command"


Release Date: 6 October 2017

Label: Nuclear Blast

Country: Germany

Genre: heavy metal

Tracklist:
1. Satan’s Hollow
2. Fatal Command
3. We Can Not Be Silenced
4. I’ll Bring You The Night
5. Scorn And Hate
6. Afflicted
7. Skullbreaker
8. Bleeding Allies
9. The Decline (And The Downfall)
10. Mistaken
11. Promised Land


I Panzer sono il progetto parallelo di Schmier, cantante-bassista dei Destruction. L’esordio, intitolato “Send Them All To Hell” e risalente al 2014, non aveva fatto gridare al miracolo: un buon disco di thrash teutonico e nulla più, nonostante la presenza in formazione di musicisti dal curriculum prestigioso come Hermann Frank e Stefan Schwarzmann (entrambi ex Accept).

Oggi Hermann Frank non è più della partita, sostituito dal chitarrista degli Hammerfall Pontus Nogren e da V.O. Pulver (proveniente dai Poltergeist), che già in precedenza aveva collaborato con la band come chitarrista aggiunto in sede live.
L’indirizzo musicale della band è rimasto sostanzialmente immutato, ma in generale i brani sembrano meglio costruiti e più elaborati. Le matrici thrash dell’esordio sono rimaste intatte nonstante qualche concessione in più alla melodia, come ad esempio in “The Decline (And The Downfall)” che, parti vocali a parte, potrebbe tranquillamente essere un brano degli ultimi Accept. “Satan’s Hollow” e “Afflicted” coniugano i riffs dei Judas Priest con la violenza del Thrash, e in songs come “We Can Not Be Silenced” o “Mistaken” i riferimenti alla band di “Mad Butcher” sono evidenti.

Nulla di imperdibile anche in questo caso quindi, ma comunque un lavoro piacevole, ben prodotto e complessivamente superiore all'esordio.

Season of Mist sign HYBORIAN


Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of HYBORIAN. The American stoner metallers will release their next album through Season of Mist.

HYBORIAN comment: "We are beyond excited to be signing with Season of Mist as they are home to some of our favorite bands of all time. We feel incredibly proud to be able to work with a label that has been so very crucial to creating the landscape of modern heavy music. We are looking forward to bring HYBORIAN to a larger audience in cooperation with Season of Mist!"

Kansas City sitting on the western boarder of the Unites States heartland state of Missouri has musically been famous for its own brand of jazz – so far. With the steep rise of HYBORIAN, which were conceived there in 2015, the city is now bound to become known for a new wave of stoner metal as well.

This year's debut album, 'Hyborian, Vol. 1' scored high praise for its delightful combination of stoner rock, retro-inspiration, and delicious grooves. Massive riff monsters towering over serious heaviness are surrounded by glistening lead parts. The impressively coherent musical picture painted by such a new band as HYBORIAN is complemented by a fitting lyrical concept.

'Hyborian, Vol. 1' revolves around a story that is inspired by 'Conan' author, Robert E. Howard and based on an interstellar, extra-dimensional cloaked being called The Traveller, whose legend is told by HYBORIAN. Vocalist Martin Bush reveals: "Basically, The Traveller is a being that exists outside of humanity's understanding of space and time. He wanders the cosmos, visiting and recording times of great strife or hardship, great suffering or great triumph. We are his chosen mouthpiece on Earth, so we relate those stories, whether from far in the past or far in the future. We are also heavily into cryptography, which resulted in several hidden messages on the album from The Traveller, posing a challenge to those listeners, who are curious enough to put in enough effort to find them."

'Hyborian, Vol. 1' was recorded at the band's own studio, mixed by Justin Mantooth at Westend Studios (RADKEY, FAMILY, GODMAKER), and mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East (TORCHE, TRAP THEM, THE RED CHORD).

WOLF THEORY: NUOVO GRUPPO CON MEMBRI DI EXILIA E MELLOWTOY



Una nuova, interessante, realtà si affaccia sulla scena rock/metal: Wolf Theory! La band nasce nel 2017 dall'incontro di quattro musicisti che hanno alle spalle esperienze importanti con band di rilievo nel panorama metal italiano e non solo. Fanno parte di questo progetto:

Random: musicista dal 1993 al 1998 con Umberto Palazzo E Il Santo Niente. Dal 1998 al 2003 fa parte dei Moltheni, dal 2003 al 2006 è il bassista degli Exilia e partecipa ai tour che la band svolge in tutto il mondo.

Teo Camellini: batterista nei Mellowtoy dal 2002 al 2017. Con La band si esibisce assieme ad alcuni degli artisti più importanti nel panorama rock/metal tra cui Stone Sour, Papa Roach, HIM, Disturbed.

Elio Alien: negli anni 90 è studio musician per la Warner Bros. Nel 98 decide di dedicarsi interamente al suo progetto personale Exilia: il primo album, dal titolo “Rightside Up”, esce nel 98 per Universal. Il vero salto di qualità avviene con l’album “Unleashed” per Gun Records/Sony BMG che entra nella top 40 in Germania. Seguiranno nel 2006 “Nobody Exluted” e nel 2008 “My Own Army”. Lascia gli Exilia nel 2011.

Emi Camellini: voce nei Mellowtoy dal 2004 al 2017. Calca palchi importanti insieme ad artisti del calibro di Stone Sour, Alter Bridge, Papa Roach. Ha all’attivo 4 album con i Mellowtoy, di cui l’ultimo “Lies” prodotto da Marco Coti Zelati (Lacuna Coil).

Il sound dei Wolf Theory è un mix di elettronica e rock con uno stile particolare e molto personale. In questi mesi la band sta lavorando al primo EP con i produttori Marco Sivo (Instant Karma, Planethard) e Frank Altare (Mellowtoy, Brain Distillers Corporation). Il nome Wolf Theory è ispirato alla vita del lupo e al suo modo di vivere, inoltre, prende spunto da una canzone dei Devotion. Attualmente la band sta organizzando un tour che nei prossimi mesi la vedrà on stage in Italia e in Europa. 

La “data zero” si terrà il 31/12/2017 al Legend Club di Milano, in concomitanza con il release party dell'EP.

Märvel - At The Sunshine Factory

"At The Sunshine Factory"

Release Date: 6 October 2017


Country: Sweden

Genre: Rock 

Tracklist:
1 - A Killing View
2 - The Secret Grand Prix
3 - Goodluck Sandy
4 - Heart & Balls
5 - Smile Mr. Steen
6 - Monsters Grow In The Dark
7 - Child
8 - Step Closer
9 - All Over The News
10 - Live & Learn
11 - Vinegar
12 - Angela

Nell'universo oscuro dell’etichetta svedese The Sign Records, fa capolino una band che all'attivo ha già ben sette album, compreso quello che vi stiamo presentando. I Märvel sono un trio svedese che basa il proprio suono sulla musica di classe degli anni 70’, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, melodie viscerali che vengono a stretto contatto con l’anima rock n’ roll di quegli anni. 

Nonostante  il modo decisamente glamour con cui il vocalist King interpreta i brani, At The Shine Factory è a tutti gli effetti un album dalle venature vintage. 
Un’opera graffiante dal sound cristallino e tagliente, un magma denso di chitarre blues dal quale fuoriescono gustose tastiere che spezzano l’intensità maniacale del basso di Burgher. 
Al di là delle emozioni che un album può trasmettere, At The Shine Factory è un disco innovativo nella sua razionalità musicale, un disco fresco ed accattivante che piacerà alle nuove ed alle vecchie generazioni.
