FROM HELL Presents Epic Horror Concept Album ‘Ascent From Hell’ – Featuring Metal Icons Paul Bostaph of Slayer, Damien Sisson of Death Angel and Steve Smyth of Nevermore, Testament, and Forbidden – To Be Released April 8th, 2014

From Hell - Ascent From Hell - promo cover pic - 2014 - #7317

“A corpse wakes up in Hell and finds out he cannot rest and must return to the land of the living to find his soul that still lives on inside the body of a priest and drag it back to Hell. When the moon turns red, you must walk with The Walking Dead.”

________________________________

Oakland, California – FROM HELL is a new horror concept heavy metal band. Their debut release on Scourge Records on April 8th, 2014 is called Ascent From Hell and it is as heavy as it is epic! FROM HELL is the brainchild of George Anderson aka Aleister Sinn, the live narrator of this horror story. This project began in 2007 after his previous band Down Factor with then drummer Ramon Ochoa, Brooks Rocco on guitar and Waylon Ford on bass broke-up. Interested in putting a different type of band together that was not involved in politics, George formed FROM HELL to tell horror stories in the vein of King Diamond. Every song is in some way linked to all of the other songs and when each album starts, they don’t stop until the very end.

After several line-up changes, during the recording of the first album, George enlisted some amazing players to record with him in FROM HELL. For this debut recording, metal icons Paul Bostaph from Slayer on drums, Steve Smyth from Nevermore on lead guitar and Damien Sisson from Death Angel on bass were recruited to make this record happen. This recording is diabolically epic, and heavy as Hell! Every song is different from the next, covering many genres of metal; from thrash metal and black metal to death metal and doom metal. This album is as dynamic as metal can be!

Also participating in this recording is Phil Bennett of the iconic rock band Starship, playing piano on the track Dead Reckoning and a 22-piece choir, The Pacific Mozart Ensemble on four other tracks. Establishing new ground, this record has the first recorded blast beat by Paul Bostaph, orchestrated with shredding guitar solos from Steve Smyth and heavy melodic & syncopated bass by Damien Sisson.

Produced by George Anderson and Steve “Snake” Green, guitar player from Skinlab, a Century Media recording artist, this recording is a theatrical 70 minutes long with segues in between each song to give additional detail to this horror story. With songs like The Walking Dead, Soul Crusher, Nun With A Gun and Ascent From Hell, this record will take you on a heavy metal horror ride to Hell!

As one can imagine, with so many legendary players in its ranks, it is hard to schedule live performances. There is a CD Release/Listening Party and signing event scheduled for early April 2014 in Oakland, California. FROM HELL will tour the West Coast and select East Coast markets to support the release of Ascent From Hell in the summer and fall of 2014. FROM HELL’s show will include a few different guest performers and members of the band who play in other bands will perform as their touring and recording schedules allow.

Visit the band’s website www.fromhell.net or www.scourgerecords.com for more information and future tour dates.

FROM HELL – Ascent From Hell to be released Physically and Digitally worldwide on April 8th, 2014.

GHOUL – Masked Mutants Of Creepsylvania To Release Hang Ten Via Tankcrimes; Band To Headline Night One Of Brainsqueeze Fest

Posted in Heavy Metal, horror, horror metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on February 15, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Ghoul - promo band pic - 2014 - #661194

In recognition of that holiest of holy days, Record Store Day, the masked mutants in GHOUL are releasing Hang Ten, a limited edition six-song (mostly) instrumental 10″ EP. Featuring guest vocals from Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) as Henchman #1 and the inimitable R.A. MacLean (ex-Deadbolt) as Kreeg, alongside Digestor, Cremator, Fermentor, Dissector and The Moron Cavern-Shackled Choir.

Hang Ten was recorded by Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (birthing home of SplatterhashSplatterthrash and Transmission Zero), mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering and sports cover art by Sean Aaberg of Pork Magazine.

Surely an anomaly in GHOUL‘s catalog, the EP features songs written exclusively in their unique brand of surf metal the quartet has previously only dabbled in. Hang Ten picks up right whereTransmission Zero left off, relaying the tale of a Creepsylvania in tatters, and the terrible power struggle that ensues between two vicious motorcycle gangs. Noted Cambridge University musical anthropologist Dr. Mantle Bannister PhD had this to say about this odd assortment of tenebrous tunes: “Why, it’s quite remarkable. I’ve never heard the like. Is it surf? Not quite. Is it metal? Maybe. Is it jazz? No, that’s a stupid question, unfit for a real life noted musical anthropologist such as myself. It’s from Creepsylvania, you say? Ghastly country. Absolutely crawling with gypsies. Say, old chap, who let you in to my office?”

Ghoul - promo band pic - #1 - 2013

Hang Ten 10″ Track Listing:

1. The Midnight Ride of the Cannibals MC

2. Kreeg

3. Sidehackers

4. Hang Ten

5. Blood on the Street

6. It Was a Very Good Year

Hang Ten will be released on April 19, 2014 via Tankcrimes Records. Peep the artwork at THIS LOCATION.

In related news, GHOUL will headline the first night of this year’s edition of Brainsqueeze Fest. Set to take place April 18th and 19th at the Oakland Metro and April 20th at Eli’s Mile High Club, which will include BBQ and an Andrei Bouzikov art show, the mammoth event features more than a dozen acts including Municipal Waste, Final Conflict, Negative Approach. Fucked Up and Cannabis Corpse as well as a gaggle of new Tankcrimes releases to be revealed in the coming weeks! Get your riot gear ready. For more info, point your browser HERE.

Further GHOULish missives to be unearthed in the coming days. Until then, wither.

Deathless Legacy - Rise From The Grave - promo album pic - 2013

“Rise From the Grave” is the first album from the Italian Horror Metal band Deathless Legacy. 10 creepy powerful songs adorned with industrial synth and a taste of hammond, to evoke the inner wishes and fears of all the human-beings walking on this world. Their music is plenty of horror, as their presence on stage: all dressed up and made up like evil immortal spirits, they drip horror aspects from every point of view, including music and atmospheres. “Rise from the grave” mixes heavy, speed and Gothic Metal sounds, giving birth to a new experience of Horror Music: you’ll be scared and exalted, believe the monsters!

NEW ALBUM FROM ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH, THE COMING BLOODBATH, WAS RELEASED ON MARCH 26TH, 2013, VIA TURKEY VULTURE RECORDS / DISTRIBUTED BY BUNGALO RECORDS & UMG

Zombie Death Stench - The Coming Bloodbath - promo cover pic

ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH – BAND BIO:

ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH doesn’t fit into any one specific genre of Metal, instead playing what they like to call “Horror Metal.” Mixed within and between their aural assaults are cold analog keyboard sounds that are evocative of Horror and Sci-Fi films of the late 70′s and 80′s. Their music is cold, dark, violent and ugly. There is nothing flashy, nothing pretty and nothing about it is clean. It is Metal in its purest rotting undead form. Nothing is sacred to them…only the undead.

Formed in 2007 and, after many line-up changes, the band has found their sound with the current four core members. With three albums, (Here I Die…Zombified, The Redeadening, The Coming Bloodbath) under their belt, they are weaving their way into the Metal mainstream with much more to come in the future.

ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH are from Central Valley, Bay Area, California.

Our new business setup will noticeably benefit the fans in so many ways. You must have already noticed some of all the cool new stuff that is happening.

Now we can’t wait to get out there and start touring again!”

Stay Heavy,
King Diamond

King Diamond - B&W Logo!KING DIAMOND is quite possibly the most recognizable and prolific personality ever in heavy metal. Revered by icons as big as Metallica and Pantera to inspiring new upstarts like Goatwhore; KING DIAMOND, the man and the band, have left an indelible mark on the history, and now again, the future of heavy metal.

In August of 2008, KING DIAMOND joined Metallica on stage at Ozzfest in Dallas to perform the Mercyful Fate medley made famous from the Garage, Inc. album. Additionally, KING DIAMOND was featured alongside Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister as a playable character in Guitar Hero: Metallica in 2009.

By 2012, KING DIAMOND was prepared to return to the stage for a select number of shows. The band’s triumphant return to the stage were the highlights of both the Hellfest and Sweden Rock festivals in France and Sweden. Fans at these festivals were treated to the largest and most involved stage production in the band’s storied history. Horror concepts from multiple albums were used in the décor; fans can rest-assured that this show will only get larger and more impressive at future performances.

KING DIAMOND’s 30+ year musical career is one of the most storied in history of heavy metal, but the tale is not yet over. The most recent release, 2007′s Grammy nominated album Give Me Your Soul…Please, stands as one of the most critically acclaimed albums in an already iconic discography. Future albums will feature entirely new horror stories, concepts, haunting orchestrations, and the band’s signature brand of heavy metal from the mind of KING DIAMOND and the talented group of musicians in tow: Andy La Rocque, Mike Wead, Hal Patino, and Matt Thompson. Many more albums, tours, and ventures lay ahead.

Happy Metal Halloween From Metal Odyssey! 2012 Edition: Here Are Some Of My Favorite Spooky Albums & Movies…

Posted in halloween, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, holidays, horror metal, horror movies, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, science fiction movies with tags , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

HAPPY METAL HALLOWEEN! Today is October 31st and Halloween 2012 is finally here! As you’ll see below, I’ve selected some of my all-time favorite spooky albums and movies, especially for all you Metal ghouls, monsters, witches, zombies and goblins out there. Enjoy!

The scary album cover at the top of this post is Orange Goblin’s fourth studio album Coup De Grace. Released back in 2002 via Rise Above Records, I highly recommend Coup De Grace from the solid-as-steel discography of Orange Goblin. This isn’t a Horror Metal album, yet it is lyrically filled with plenty of strange stories. Monkey Panic is a true Horror themed song, however. Coup De Grace contains a sensationally cool mix of Stoner Metal, Doom and a cover of the Misfits classic We Bite, (a song which adds a potent moment of Horror Punk to this album).

As with many of you out there, my favorite King Diamond album is Abigail. One of the greatest Metal concept albums ever written, structured and performed, in my Metal opinion! Released back in 1987 via Roadrunner Records, Abigail also features current and longtime Motörhead drummer Mikkey DeeAbigail is the crème de la crème of the King Diamond discography, without any Metal doubt in my mind.

What would a Metal Halloween be without the super-duper legendary IRON MAIDEN? For that matter, what would Halloween be like without IRON MAIDEN’s iconic mascot Eddie? I cringe at the thoughts! IRON MAIDEN without question, has the greatest assemblage of album covers in Heavy Metal history. Thanks to artists Derek Riggs and Melvyn Grant, Eddie’s mascot celebrity within the world of Metal is second to none.

Back on March 25th, 2010, I posted a feature titled: My Favorite Heavy Metal Album Cover Is… and you can read all about it by clicking the link below! Hint: It’s IRON MAIDEN.

MY FAVORITE HEAVY METAL ALBUM COVER IS…

Here Are 2 Of My Favorite All-Time Scary Movies:

Directed by the ultra-legendary John Carpenter, They Live was released back in 1988 and is distributed by Universal Studios. This is a Science Fiction-Horro Film that essentially shows what our world would be like if taken over by elitist aliens. Uh, huh. Filthy rich space aliens want to take over the world!

My favorite professional wrestler of all-time is the star of They Live: “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. I feel his performance in They Live was stellar, just like his wrestling career. Rowdy Roddy Piper gives plenty of hurtin’ on these white-collar space aliens, before he, um… I won’t give the ending of this fabulous movie away.

Shout! Factory will be releasing, on November 6th, 2012, a “collector’s edition” of They Live, on both DVD and Blu-ray. Check out Shout! Factory here: http://www.shoutfactory.com

Another Science Fiction thriller directed by John Carpenter! This creepy Sci-Fi film takes place in 1997 and New York City is a maximum security prison! Once you’re put inside this NYC prison, you never come out… unless you’re Snake Plissken.

Legendary actor Kurt Russell is phenomenal in his role as Snake Plissken; his mission is to rescue The President of the United States (Donald Pleasence) from this horrible prison. It’s detailed as to how this all happened! Just get this movie at all Metal costs, if you already haven’t.

Escape From New York was released back in 1981 and  distributed by AVCO Embassy Pictures.

Escape From New York also stars such other notable actors: Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Adrienne Barbeau and Isaac Hayes as The Duke of New York.

I once met the producer for Escape From New York! Debra Hill was introduced to me at a wedding I attended (somewhere) in Long Island, (sometime) back in the ’90′s. A very quick “hello” and (I think) handshake and that’s about it. That’s my “brush with fame” when it comes to this unreal terrific movie!

METAL BE THY NAME.

Abyss Records To Unleash Rocking Corpses Debut “Rock N’ Rott” On Friday, July 13th

Posted in Death Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, horror metal, horror rock, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 12, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

This Friday the 13th, your ass is getting lucky! Abyss Records is set to unleash the final selection from the Summer of Sickness Campaign 2012 with Rock N’ Rott, the debut from Finland’s horror-worshiping Heavy Rock duo Rocking Corpses. Blending Bluesy Rock, aggressive Death Metal and zombie fanfare, Rocking Corpses are as entertaining as they are terrifying.

A fan-made video of the track “925″ is below!

ROCKING CORPSES – “925″

1.  Intro – Into the Grave

2.  Up from the Grave

3.  Necropolis

4.  For Better for Worse

5.  Take a Whiskey

6.  Life for a Life

7.  925

8.  Rocking Corpses

9.  In the Dead of Night

10.  Necrophiliacs

11.  Dead End

________________________________

Horror Death Rock from the necropolis called Finland. Raise the Hell!

Rocking Corpses was conceived in the end of 2007 after Tony realized what kind of music he really wanted to do. Being a big fan of bluesy rock, death metal and horror, Rocking Corpses was going to be a mixture of all that he loved in music and movies. Some months later Laze got interested about the idea and joined forces with Tony. In 2009 two demo songs were recorded and in 2010 they decided to record a whole 10 piece story about the apocalypse as seen through the eyes of a zombie.

Rock ‘n’ Rott is not only the genre of Rocking Corpses, but also the title of the first album that depicts what happens in the mind of a zombie. The story is full of black humor and gore, but also many references to real life. The music is a mixture of many Rock and Metal elements with low growling verses and melodic and very catchy choruses. There is not so much distortion in the guitars and the beats have more Rock than Death Metal influences, so the combination is very unique and appealing to many different tastes.

Tony D.K. – Vocals & Guitar

Leper Laze – Vocals & Bass
