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!

From Hell band promo photo med - 2014

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.

GRAVE ROBBER – Confirmed For Warriors Of Metal Fest VII Pre-Fest Showcase

Grave Robber - promo live photo - 2013 - #6767

January 23, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to announce that Fort Wayne, Indiana’s premier Horror Punk band GRAVE ROBBER has gladly accepted the unenviable challenge of being the “show closer” and final performer for the Pre-Fest Showcase of the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII, which will take place at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill on Thursday, June 26 in Columbus, Ohio.

Vocalist Wretched states:  “We are honored and excited to have been invited by Datis to play the Warriors Of Metal Pre-fest and our second time on the O’Shecky’s stage. As a theatrical horror punk band, we have always had utmost respect for all things metal and have always included touches of metal in our artistic vision of horror. In fact, similar to The Misfits, we have found that quite a large percentage of our fanbase are straight up metalheads who hate punk, but somehow find common ground with Grave Robber and love what we do. We are greatly looking forward to playing way too loud, way too fast, way too aggressive and making some friends and comrades in aggressive musical endeavors. Thank you again, Datis from the bottom of our reanimated, undead hearts. Be afraid, be very afraid!”

Believe the hype with the official music video for GRAVE ROBBER’s “Altered States,” now playing below:

IHATE – Chris Barnes Launches Vicious New Death Metal Project; Preview Track Posted + Special Pledge Music Preorder Packages Now Available

Posted in Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, horror, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Ihate - promo cover image - 2014 - #3330

Six Feet Under founding throat/Death Metal icon, Chris Barnes, is pleased to bring fans his latest work of sonic deviance in the form of the fittingly christened, IHATE. A venture inadvertently launched between Barnes and multi-instrumentalist/fellow horror enthusiast Bob Taggett, their as-yet-untitled debut promises to deliver eight violent tracks of raw, unrepentant, Death Metal brutality and lyrical depravity.

Relays Barnes of the project’s formation, “Early last year I got a message via Facebook from someone named Bob and Bob said to me, as a lot of people do, ‘I have some songs and I’d like you to sing on them. Can I send you a song so you could check it out?’ I get a lot of these requests and didn’t think too much of it, but since I was just fresh back from a tour and a little bored, I decided to entertain the idea of listening to a song from Bob. After receiving an email with the first track that was attached to a video which more or less mapped out a murder storyline, I thought it was really different, and definitely creepy visually. And there was something very primitive and energetic to the attack of the music. It was very driven. I could feel it instantly. I knew this wasn’t a joke and wasn’t done half-assed. The music I was listening to was aggressive as a knife carving chunks of flesh off a body. Putting the music to a video caught my attention, immediately, as to Bob’s focus. I found it all really interesting. I have almost always worked from a storyline in my head for my lyrical inspiration and my own imagination, but never have started from the standpoint of lyrically scoring a storyline already laid out on video first, like scoring a film. That seemed really exciting to me as a writer as well as a vocalist. I emailed Bob back and told him I would love to be involved with making this album with him. So one thing led to another and we began writing and recording. We are very close to finishing the album and have enlisted the good people at Pledge Music to help us reach out to all of the fans who we hope will help us make this album a reality.”

As for what true death metal miscreants can expect from the IHATE end product? “To me, it really is a masterpiece of brutal, violent death metal,” says Barnes, “I’m really stoked that if got to work on this album. The fans know that I’m no stranger to writing some sick lyrics, but the stuff I have come up with this time is entirely over-the-top even by my standards. I really want the fans to hear this album and dig into the storylines of the songs. This is the first time I’ve used crowd-funding to make and release an album. And it’s been a very challenging, interesting learning experience along the way. And an eye-opener as well. We are really hoping the fans of death metal will make a pledge and preorder our new album. It’s really important to us that this album gets released. This is brutal as fuck.”

Check out more from Barnes as well as a preview of the track “Seeing Red” at THIS LOCATION.

Several IHATE preorder packages, which include autographed posters and CDs as well as a chance to have a personal listening session with Barnes himself, are available via Pledge Music. For more info, point your browser HERE. Further IHATE info to be announced shortly.

“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.

SNOW WHITE’S POISON BITE – “Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show” – Album Review

Posted in horror, Metal, metal music, Music, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Snow White's Poison Bite - Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show - promo cover

3.5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal Fists - 3 and a half - Metal Odyssey

SNOW WHITE’S POISON BITE – Somewhere along my Metal life, the combination of Horror and Rock ‘N Roll has snagged a part of my Metal soul and refuses to leave. Cool. Case in point: this past Summer, I picked up the new CD from Finland’s Snow White’s Poison Bite, with its lengthy (yet cool) title: Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show (Victory Records). I bought this CD without hearing a single note from it; the cover artwork sold itself!

If there is one dilemma I have with Snow White’s Poison Bite, it’s I wish they would settle on what sound they truly want to be famous for. These guys play (and Jeremy Thirteenth sings) Punk, Alternative, Extreme and Metal very well; only it’s the mixed bag of genres that distracts me; I sincerely want to be floored by this CD, only the change in musical styles has me asking: how does this band want to be labeled? If this Horror Crew wanted to just play straight-up (toasted cheese sandwich and beer) Horror Punk, saving the extremity and slivers of emo vocals for another day, then I’d do a naked jig clear across the beautiful state of Ohio. Yup.

Snow White's Poison Bite - Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show - promo cover

For the Metal money, this is a (gasp) FUN CD to listen to and the song titles should pretty much give that away. I am totally down with what Snow White’s Poison Bite have done with the marketing of their band, from the artwork to their Horror Punk attire and makeup. This is a rowdy CD, which adds an important plus to my liking it. I absolutely dig the creepy spoken words on both the intro (track 1) and ending (track 10) to this CD.

The legendary (former) Misfits frontman, Michael Graves, is featured on Zombie Romance. The (unexpected) 1950’s Doo Wop and Shoo Bop experience this song initially introduces only gives way to an even more delectable dish of creepy Horror Punk, making this song my favorite of the track list. At the end of my Metal day, I do recommend this CD to Horror Punk fans and Alternative (Heavy Rock) fans alike. Metal be thy name.

Track Listing:

1. Gruesomely Introducing: Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show 2. The Gruesome Gory Horror Show 3. There’s A New Creep On The Block 4. Will You Meet Me In The Graveyard? 5. Halloween Means Death 6. Count Dracula Kid 7. Dr. Gruesome 8. Zombie Romance (Feat. Michael Graves) 9. Lurking Inside Of You 10. The Show Must Gruesomely End

MISFITS – ALL-NEW MISFITS STUDIO SINGLE COMING FOR HALLOWEEN

Posted in horror, horror punk, Music, Punk rock, punk rock bands, rock albums, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on September 18, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

MISFITS – That’s right Fiends, the ‘fits will debut two all-new studio recordings for the first time anywhere on a special limited edition 12-inch maxi-single this Halloween!

90’s era Misfits ‘fiend’ fav “Descending Angel” has been re-recorded with a brand new 2013 treatment by the “Devil’s Rain” lineup (Jerry, Dez and Chupacabra). The new single features wicked cover art by Jeff Zornow (Fright Rags, IDW’s Godzilla comics & more). Here’s a first glimpse of the old-school inspired, one-color sleeve art, compliments of Misfits Records. (Shown above).

More news will follow, including details on the flip side track, (hint for die-hard fiends…you’ve only heard the ‘fits perform this track live, but a studio version will soon debut). Also keep your evil eyes peeled for advance word on pre-ordering, highly limited exclusive variant vinyl colorways, and how to get your copy before it even arrives in stores!

This and lots more, coming VERY soon from Misfits Records. Stay tuned…

PHANTOM 13 “Voices Of The Dead” (Official Music Video) Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in horror, horror metal, horror punk, horror rock, Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news, shock rock with tags , , , , , on August 25, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Phantom 13 - Out For Blood - 5 Phantom Thirteen Bucks

PHANTOM 13 – Columbus is the capital and largest city in the grand state of Ohio. Columbus is also home to PHANTOM 13. This Horror Punk band has a rabid following and rightfully so; for PHANTOM 13 delivers the Horror and Shock with quality written original songs to scare the hell out of you. No Shock Rock fan of Misfits, Danzig, Wednesday 13, Balzac or even Rob Zombie should ignore the frightening and contagious sound of PHANTOM 13.

Take a listen and look below to the official music video for PHANTOM 13’s Voices Of The Dead; the first single from their Out For Blood CD. Voices Of The Dead ROCKS, tears apart tranquility and tells of unspeakable truths of speaking to the dead. Beware… there’s nowhere to hide or run to… your time has run out, cause… 

Voices Of The Dead Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day! Metal be thy name!

I have tried to locate any websites/social sites for DA-MORGUE, only with no success. Definitely an underground Horror Mag? Does this Horror Mag really exist? If anyone out there has more info on DA-MORGUE, drop a comment!! – Metal be thy name… Stone

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.
