PYREXIA – New York Death Metal Merchants To Release “Feast Of Iniquity” Next Month; New Track Posted

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on September 30, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Pyrexia - Feast Of Iniquity - promo cover pic

Long-running New York Death Metal merchants, PYREXIA, are back with a new slab of epic brutality set for Release via Unique Leader Records later this Fall. The ten-track Feast of Iniquity was recorded at New York’s Pitch Black Sound and mixed and mastered by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Kataklysm, The Red Chord, Crowbar, Municipal Waste, 3 Inches Of Blood et al) at Planet Z in Massachusetts, making it the most sonically punishing record of PYREXIA’s menacing catalog of chaos!

With the addition of Doug Bohn (Suffocation - Pierced From Within) on drums alongside Dave “War Machine” Culross (Suffocation, Malevolant Creation) and their signature assault of maniacal riff shifts, subterranean growls and devious groove, Feast of Iniquity is a threatening expulsion of true sonic venom and arguably their most pungent creation since Sermon of Mockery! Believe it.

Feast of Iniquity will detonate via Unique Leader Records on October 29, 2013. In the meantime, sample opening hymn, “The Pendulum,” below. Collect your teeth later.    

Feast of Iniquity - Track Listing:

1. The Pendulum

2. Infliction

3. Death Wish

4. Cocoon of Shame

5. Cryptic Summoning

6. Thy Minion

7. Wheel of Impunity

8. Panzer Tank Lobotomy

9. Born of a Jackal

10. The Feast

PYREXIA Personnel: 

Shaun Kennedy - bass

Chris Basile – guitars

Eric Shute – vocals

Doug Bohn “Bones” – drums

Dave “War Machine” Culross - drums

Stay tuned for additional PYREXIA missives, including preorders and tour dates, to be announced in the following days.

DORO – METAL QUEEN RECEIVES METAL HAMMER “LEGEND“ AWARD!

Doro - promo banner - #50 - 2013

Friday the 13th, 2013 for sure was a day of good luck, unlike the notorious date. At 10:30 pm, at the celebratory ceremony of METAL HAMMER AWARDS in Berlin, 48-times Berlin World boxing champion Regina Halmich announces the winner of the category “Legend”. Her name: DORO Pesch!

Now the most important female Hard Rock and Heavy Metal singer is officially named a legend in her native Germany. Just three months earlier, DORO had been awarded at the “Golden Gods Awards“ at music mecca London.

“Unbelievable”, a shining DORO states. “The prophet does not count that much in his own country. Receiving this trophy in Germany and getting it handed over by my dear friend Regina Halmich is a big, big honor.”

DORO continues: “I am ever so happy, that also two of my absolute favorite bands METALLICA and MOTÖRHEAD were present at this wonderful event to witness this. With those guys I’ve been close friends for years.”

Doro - Publicity Photo - 2012 - #1!

Two “Legend“ Awards within just three months – the double-coronation for the blonde Rock-Queen and this in the year of her 30th stage anniversary.

Her fans can also take part in the celebration and enjoy the living legend live from October 12 onwards. At that time DORO will be embarking on her big 30 years Strong and Proud-Tour through Germany. Highlight: The double concert on May 2/3 2014 at her hometown Düsseldorf (CCD – Stadthalle).

Satyricon - Self-Titled - promo cover pic

The eighth studio album by Norwegian Black Metal band SATYRICON will be released in North America on September 17th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

SATYRICON:

“We are back. Sorry it took so long, but we needed the time to be able to pull off a record like this,” states band frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven. “Comparing this one to previous records is time wasted, it is SATYRICON; constantly on the move. Naming this record Satyricon was the most obvious thing in the world. We have never done a record which captures the spirit of this band in such a way. Ever. It will demand a lot from you as a listener, but I know you will love it. It will grow on you and that is why it will stay with you forever. We won’t tour as much in the future as we used to, and that will just make every tour more special. This album is for you and ourselves. It is our moment!”

DAVE MUSTAINE & MEGADETH – Can We Stop Throwing Stones At These METAL Legends?

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , on August 4, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Megadeth Chrome Logo Banner 2009

It seems to me, since the legendary Dave Mustaine made public he is a man of Christian faith, that the insults, negative comments and bullshit, nonsensical rhetoric has been thrown his way like a tsunami. It’s a mob rules mentality when it comes to throwing stones at Dave Mustaine and Megadeth.

Gee, if Dave Mustaine announced himself as an atheist, would that make him more cool? Gee, if Dave Mustaine announced himself as a Satanist, would it make him more attractive and bitchin? If Dave Mustaine made it clear he was a die-hard liberal, would ALL fans and critics praise his every step in life? If Dave Mustaine was constantly being found passed out in the gutters of Hollywood Boulevard, would it make him a Metal hero?

Megadeth - Super Collider - promo cover pic!

Many fans, critics and those not in the know have labeled the new album from Megadeth, Super Collider, as a terrible and/or worst Megadeth album ever. Give me a fucking break. That’s totally insane. Have y’all ever listened to Metallica’s crap from the 90′s? Save for The Black Album, Metallica did everything they could to get on the good side of Rolling Stone magazine and the bullshit Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, with their radio friendly and garbage pail albums from the 90′s.

Dave Mustaine has made his mistakes in life, there’s no doubt. He’s admitted it all in his fantastic and sincere 2011 biography. Gigantour has given bands a commercial lift when they needed it most, while keeping the Metal fires burning in the mainstream spotlight. Dave Mustaine is not a perfect human being; nor is Megadeth a perfect Metal band.

If y’all want to bitch and moan about something in the world of Metal, then bitch about how Sharon Osbourne has controlled the Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne machines. Bitch and shit your pants about how The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is an anti-Metal good-ol-boys-club and ignores the facts that Judas Priest, Deep PurpleRainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Iron Maiden, KISSMotörhead, Scorpions and Helloween even exist.

Enough is enough. Dave Mustaine helped (in an ENORMOUS way) to pioneer the legacy of Metallica. The proof is right in front of you. For the Megadeth and Dave Mustaine haters out there, do your fucking Metal homework. Dave Mustaine and Megadeth are every bit the Thrash Metal pioneers that Metallica are. Dave Mustaine and his Megadeth band are not just Metal legends, they’re Metal icons. For those haters out there, show some fucking respect or get the hell out of our Metal family. Metal be thy name.

Human Fortress - Band Promo Pic - 2013 - #1

Hanover (Germany) based Epic Power Metal band HUMAN FORTRESS has signed with AFM Records.

After a 5-year hiatus the band returns with new vocalist Gus Monsanto (ex-Revolution Renaissance/Adagio) and a clear mission ahead:

“With our upcoming album we musically want to continue in the vein of our first two releases “Lord Of Earth And Heavens Heir” and “Defenders Of The Crown”. We are very happy to start this new endeavour with our fantastic new vocalist Gus Monsanto now”, guitarist Torsten Wolf comments.

Gus explains: “I always wanted to do this kind of music but couldn’t find a band like that in Brazil. These songs are epic, with huge hooklines and I was convinced straight away. I can’t wait to play our songs on stage“.

HUMAN FORTRESS have just finished recordings for their upcoming album which will be released by the end of the year.
