Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day Is: BATTLECROSS “Not Your Slave” (Official Video)

Battlecross - Rise To Power - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #0528MOBC

BATTLECROSS – In essence, I could very well state that the entire Rise To Power studio album from BATTLECROSS is Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day. With ten songs of Thrash Metal splendor, Rise To Power is a megastar Metal release for 2015, in my Metal opinion. Track number 2 from this album, Not Your Slave, is the song featured here today and it’s a strong example of just how Rise To Power plays out.

BATTLECROSS is a Midwest Thrash Metal band that the state of Michigan should be extremely proud of. I am ecstatic that BATTLECROSS has grabbed the torch of Thrash Metal, helping to secure the genre for many years to come. Rise To Power is the third studio album for BATTLECROSS on the Metal Blade Records label. In the event you haven’t checked out this band, you darn well should.

Listen below and hear for yourself! I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day Is: FALLEN ANGELS “Nightmare” (Lyric Video)

Fallen Angels - World In Decay - promo album cover pic - 2015

FALLEN ANGELS – Seattle Washington’s FALLEN ANGELS have taken me by incredible surprise this year, with their enormously grand album of Thrash Metal glory titled: World In Decay. As an older Thrashaholic like myself, I feel reassured that old school Thrash Metal will live on, due to the likes of FALLEN ANGELS. What a thrill this album is from these fine Thrashers! Holy shit it’s really good.

Track #2 on World In Decay is Nightmare (listen below). While listening to Brad “Bradzilla” Kennaugh on vocals, he takes me back to a time when Thrash on vinyl was freaking king. Erik Hanson and Matt Be Roth are the guitar duo that blazes through this song below, like hell’s wildfire out of control! Bassist Carl Larsson and drummer Steve Spitzbart kick ass. How’s that for being plain-speaking? Whoa.

Look for World In Decay to make a STRONG showing in my year-end list of Best Metal Albums of 2015. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Today Is The Day - Grime - European Tour Promo Poster - 2015 - #MO777NMSS33FD

TODAY IS THE DAY has crossed the Atlantic to begin a month-long tour of Europe, beginning today, Saturday, November 21st, with support for the entire trek to be provided by Italian sludge savages, Grime.

The feral experimental metal trio TODAY IS THE DAY sees founding frontman Steve Austin currently flanked by bassist Trevor Thomas and drummer Douglas Andrae. The band has been touring relentlessly since the release of their tenth studio full-length, Animal Mother, released last year on Southern Lord, taking to the road for long stints with Lazer/Wulf and Abigail Williams; their upcoming European tour will showcase them at their gnarled, refined best.

On their way out of the country, Austin announced: “Our European tour starts this Saturday in Brussels. The tour is of course still on and we are not cancelling. We are going to go about our lives as we normally do and play music for our fans and friends in Europe, not afraid. I hope to see you there! We are with you Europe! Let it rip, light it up!”

TODAY IS THE DAY’s video for “Heathen” is playing RIGHT HERE or below:

…And their “Masada” video HERE or below:

Animal Mother is available from Southern Lord digitally HERE and on CD and LP HERE.

Steve Austin has also been occupied recently with scoring the soundtrack to Addiction: A 60’s Love Story, a vice-soaked feature-length directed by Tate Steinseck. The trailer is playing at Entertainment Tonight HERE and fronting Montreal-based psychedelic post-hardcore quintet, LAE, as witnessed on the band’s debut 2xLP Break The Clasp.

IRON MAIDEN – Iconic Metal Warriors Are Cover Feature For Revolver Magazine’s December Issue!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, music news, news, rock music with tags , , , on November 6, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Iron Maiden - Eddie - cover feature - Revolver Magazine - December 2015 - #MOIMNSSM99033

IRON MAIDEN – I just bought this December issue of Revolver at Barnes & Noble today and what a read! The front cover is super badass with the tribal Eddie in all of his gory glory! Whoa! I haven’t purchased a copy of Revolver in a few years, due to the fact that I’m into Zero Tolerance, Metal Hammer and other Metal mags. In addition, the internet itself is where I get 90% of my Metal news as well. However, when this issue stared back at me today, I said: sold!!

I, like countless other Metal and IRON MAIDEN fans are ecstatic that the great Bruce Dickinson has beaten cancer. The Bruce Dickinson feature is a must read. There’s a cool article on Deafheaven too, a band I’ve recently discovered and dig. I haven’t read the Coheed And Cambria or Trivium articles yet; I’ll read them though, of course. This Revolver mag cost me $6.99 (U.S.) and is worth every dime as an IRON MAIDEN collectible. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone
