Yngwie Malmsteen – Trial By Fire / Live In Leningrad Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

__________________________________

YNGWIE MALMSTEENTrial By Fire / Live In Leningrad was the first live album released by this iconic Neoclassical Metal guitarist, back in 1989, via Polydor. The legendary Joe Lynn Turner is the lead vocalist, with Barry Dunaway (bass & vocals), Jens Johansson (keyboards) and Anders Johansson (drums) rounding out this magnificent group. This live album was produced by Yngwie Malmsteen.

I once owned this album on vinyl and didn’t upgrade this release to CD until today. Unreal, I know. I found this Yngwie Malmsteen gem at my favorite indie Pop Culture store in Dayton, Ohio: Disc Exchange. I am thrilled to have this Yngwie Malmsteen release back in my ears and collection, once again! Ignore any lame reviews for this album that you may run into on the internet; such reviews are written by dorks that are easy listening aficionados. This is as splendid a live album as you’ll hear; Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Lynn Turner and band put on a fabulous live show!

Yngwie Malmsteen is at his finest, shredding about with his signature jaw-dropping guitar magic. Don’t expect these songs to be carbon copies from their respective studio albums either; songs such as You Don’t Remember, I’ll Never Forget and Deja Vu are smokin’ with some whiz-bang improv, while Yngwie Malmsteen’s solo’s are supernatural. I waited too long to regain this live Yngwie Malmsteen album; I promise to myself, I’ll never let it go again! Metal be thy name. – Stone

KREATOR – EUROPEAN TOUR 2014 Announced! Arch Enemy, Sodom And Vader To Support!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on April 16, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Kreator - European Tour 2014 - promo flyer

Following the release of last year’s highly acclaimed and critically hailed live DVD/Blu-ray Dying Alive, German Thrash Metal giants KREATOR now announce a tour for November/December 2014, leading the true “Hordes Of Chaos” throughout Europe as headliners and with them a real high-class selection of bands.

Joining KREATOR for the upcoming live shenanigans are Polish label mates VADER, Swedish death metal masters ARCH ENEMY and German Thrash veterans SODOM.

Frontman Mille Petrozza comments:

“A lot of our European fans voiced their discontent over the fact that the band hardly does European club tours – apart from our festival shows. In 2013 we were mainly busy playing for our fans overseas. We want to change this now. In time for the reissues of Endless Pain, Pleasure To Kill and Extreme Aggression, in all kinds of formats – finally on vinyl again too – we`ll end the Phantom Antichris tour cycle in Europe with a massive string of shows. This will be your last chance to see KREATOR live in clubs for quite a while, because we`ll be busy working on a new album in 2015 and only play carefully selected shows. Right now we`re working on a new multimedia stage show and we`ll also have a bunch of surprises in the setlist. Our friends of ARCH ENEMY are part of the trek to present their new album War Eternal, and so will VADER and our old companions SODOM. This tour will be KILLER!!!”

DARKENTRIES “The Make Believe” – 5 Song Debut EP Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, post-sludge, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 15, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

DARKENTRIES is a Post-Sludge band from Columbia, South Carolina and one of the first signed bands to Kylesa’s new record label: Retro Futurist. Overall, this 5 song debut EP from Darkentries, The Make Believe, is a blend of extreme, macabre sound, vibes and emotions. If you can picture how the Melvins would sound being phenomenally pissed off, coupled with the dark anger of Trillion Red, then you’ll (hopefully) know what Darkentries is serving for Metal dinner… and it’s not your grandma’s mac and cheese.

With all of that above blab stated, Darkentries are unique, with an overriding Doom Metal quality and forceful energy about their Metal. If you like to be scared straight, then play this nifty EP in a total dark room by yourself. The vocals alone are an extreme showstopper and quite possibly from dark places unknown to mankind. Don’t allow the band’s look (see photo at bottom) deceive you. This band isn’t looking to share their time mulling over imported tea and biscuits; this Darkentries crew is instead looking to dominate a Metal genre and kick your eardrums into submission. Cool.

Darkentries plays at such a potent level of Post-Sludge Extreme and their Metal has an impressive enormous bite; their debut should catapult their career both among the underground dwellers and those above that know better. That’s my Metal assessment, anyways. Dig it? I sure dig Darkentries. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Hit the Bandcamp play button below and get your senses torched by Darkentries! Then buy their Metal and support this talented Metal act!

Track Listing: TV FUZZ, HONEY EATER, I’M TIRED OF BEING AWAKE, 1200-S, FEEDBACK FUNERAL

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on April 12, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Bloodshot Dawn - promo pic - 2014 - #40041

UK melodic extreme metallers Bloodshot Dawn have announced more guests that are set to appear on their as of yet unrecorded second album. The announcements are Andy James and Chris Amott, two very highly accomplished guitarists.

Andy James is a globally renowned metal and shred guitarist known for incredible playing and versatility with his instrument. He has featured on DVD’s released with leading companies such as Licklibrary and Jamtrax as well as having released several solo records and two successful albums with Sacred Mother Tongue. Andy is also known for having appeared on stages all across the world not just with Sacred Mother Tongue but with bands such as Cradle of Filth, The Fields of the Nephilim and as a solo artist at industry shows such as NAMM in Los Angeles and the Frankfurt MESSE.

Chris Amott needs little introduction, the Swedish shredder is most notably known as a founding member of melodic death metal titans Arch Enemy. Chris left Arch Enemy in 2012 to pursue his solo career and went on to release ‘Follow Your Heart’. He also founded Armageddon releasing three successful albums and after relocating to USA he has announced that a brand new Armageddon record is in the making.

FLAYED DISCIPLE – Announce New Record

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , on April 7, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Flayed Disciple - promo band pic - 2014 - #4099

2014 has seen UK Death/Thrash outfit Flayed Disciple back in the studio recording a new EP and follow-up to the 2012 debut album ‘Death Hammer’. Chuck Creese, who produced the ‘Ejaculate While Killing’ EP in 2010, was back at the helm recording the new record.

Guitarist Jon Whitfield comments: “The new EP will remain untitled and released on a stunning 12″ vinyl as well as digitally. This release is to showcase the bands new sound and energy, and our new drummer Rich Lewis who joined us in 2013.”

‘Flayed Disciple’ EP will be released May 24th via Bethlam Records.

Flayed Disciple - - promo cover pic - 2014

The EP contains three new tracks; ‘Sick Abomination’, ‘The Gates Of Bedlam’ and ‘The Maniac’ and with over 20 minutes of music, Flayed Disciple are set to deliver more of the epic thrash style that they began to carve for themselves on ‘Death Hammer’. A music video for ‘The Gates of Bedlam’ will also be released coinciding with the vinyl release.

Since the release of Flayed Disciple’s 2012 debut album ‘Death Hammer’, things have moved forward greatly and at great speed. With massive acclaim from the Metal media, Flayed Disciple gained coverage in mainstream magazines such as Metal Hammer & Terrorizer. The band released two music videos, ‘The Shrine Of Dahmer’ and ‘The Westboro Massacre’; the latter, which went on to reach over 90,000 views on YouTube.

Watch ‘The Westboro Massacre’ Here:

The band have toured up and down their native UK as well as Europe and beyond with heavyweights such as Vader, Aborted, Blood Red Throne, etc. The band have played numerous festivals including the UK’s Bloodstock Festival, Hammerfest and they made an appearance at the Indian Metal Fest in Bangalore alongside Gojira.

Flayed Disciple are now seasoned live players, and have a UK tour from May 18th to 24th as main support to Earache Records’ Thrash maniacs Bonded By Blood. The band also has a 13-day European tour from October 6th to 18th in support of another Earache Records’ band Cerebral Bore.

GOZU: Massachusetts Riff Rockers To Embark Upon First-Ever European Tour; “The Fury Of A Patient Man” Limited Edition Vinyl Out Now

Posted in Hard Rock, Metal, Music, news, rock bands, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on April 7, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Gozu - European Tour 2014 - promo flyer

Massachusetts hellions, GOZU, will take their riffs overseas next week for their first-ever European takeover! Set to begin at the legendary Roadburn Festival, the band will wage a full-on volume ambush through ten select locales in the Netherlands, Germany, Slovenia and Italy, concluding with a performance at Desertfest in Berlin.

GOZU will be touting the fruit of their The Fury Of A Patient Man full-length released last Spring via Small Stone. The self-produced ten track monster earned widespread praise for its Chris Cornellian vocal swells and robust, heavy rock swagger. Describes The Big Takeover of the release, “Besides wielding bruising riffs like katanas, the Cambridge, Massachusetts quartet shows an impish sense of pop culture humor with titles like ‘Charles Bronson Pinchot,’ ‘Disco Related Injury’ and the Welcome Back, Kotter referencing ‘Signed, Epstein’s Mom.’ But the primary reasons GOZU stomps most pot smoking riffmeisters into the ground are their two frontdudes. Guitarist Doug Sherman maintains a melodic touch even as his amps scream for mercy, and singer Marc Gaffney exudes as much soul as bravado.”

_____________________________

Adds MetalSucks, “GOZU play the tunes on their sophomore album with a pair of great grizzled gonads. We’re talking balls, people, some truly tremendous twin testes. The kind so deeply and scraggily forested that those epic ball-beards have epic ball-beards; the kind that require a high quality wide-angle lens to get any real perspective on… At times, The Fury Of A Patient Man plays like a de-progged Mastodon after a dozen successful anger management sessions, or a laid back King Giant. The consistently competent delivery, the thick lowdown chords, dynamic proficiency and attention to density all point that direction. It’s the kind of heavy rock that just about anybody can enjoy over a few foamy brews in a hazy basement bar on a Saturday night. And when your date agrees to take the evening back to your place, you can even pretend she’s thinking of you the whole time.”

A special deluxe edition of The Fury Of A Patient Man was recently released via Small Stone in celebration of the upcoming European journey. Limited to 500 copies, the 2XLP set comes on 180-gram wax with a wide spine jacket, poly-lined sleeve, and two colors – LP one is “clear green” while LP two is “solid purple.” Sides one, two and three feature tracks from the original album, while side four offers up exclusive vinyl-only numbers with one original tune (“Break You”) and GOZUed renditions of Simply Red’s “Holding Back The Years” and D’Angelo’s “Shit, Damn, Motherfucker.”

GOZU Spring Tour 2014:

4/12/2014 Roadburn – Tilburg, NL
4/13/2014 Hafenklang – Hamburg, DE
4/15/2014 Feierwerk – Munich, DE

IZEGRIM “Congress Of The Insane” – An Insanely Grand Death/Thrash Album You MUST Know About!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on April 5, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Izegrim - Congress Of The Insane - promo cover pic

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

IZEGRIM – This is a Dutch Death/Thrash Metal band that every member of our Metal community MUST know about! Fronted by vocalist/bassist Marloes, IZEGRIM’s sonic punishment can very well destroy our Earth’s geomagnetic field and we can all start kissing our asses goodbye now. Seriously. IZEGRIM is that freaking heavy and scalding of a Death/Thrash troupe and Congress Of The Insane (Listenable Records) is Metal proof positive! The album cover artwork is beyond incredible too.

As for the subject matter heard lyrically, on Congress Of The Insane, I’ll leave it to Marloes herself, as she has previously stated: “Congress of the Insane” features a concept based on the evil in the deceiving human nature. “Nowadays everyone seems normal until you get to know them. Some freaks are here, they’re real and they are alive!” The gathering of those disclosed society monsters can be depicted as a “Congress of the Insane.”

Crushing all that comes into its path, Congress Of The Insane is an extreme gem among Metal releases from 2013. The vocals of Marloes are potent enough to be considered a weapon of mass destruction. With a killer rhythm section and scathing duo guitars, IZEGRIM have proven to me, beyond a reasonable Metal doubt, that they are one of my favorite Metal bands within our Metal galaxy. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Skinfather - None Will Mourn - promo cover pic - 2014 - #100

As Streetcleaner Records prepares to release None Will Mourn, the debut LP from SKINFATHER, today the first single from the album has been released via Decibel Magazine.

Southern California-based death metal quintet SKINFATHER’s debut album, None Will Mourn, bears nine pulverizing hymns delivered with calculated precision and a cavernous production, taking direct inspiration from the 1990s Stockholm death metal scene and jacking it up with a bit more modern muscle. None Will Mourn was engineered by Taylor Young from Nails, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and features the bold cover art crafted by Raul Gonzalez, and is set for digital and LP release via Todd Jones of Nails’ DIY label, Streetcleaner Records, on April 22nd.

Today, Decibel Magazine is hosting a premiere of the first single from the album to be released, with the LP’s second track, “Drown In Black,” now slaughtering at THIS LOCATION.

Preorders for the LP version of None Will Mourn, which includes a digital download, are also now live, alongside other Skinfather merch HERE.

A week following the street date of None Will Mourn, SKINFATHER will join Nails on their upcoming West Coast tour, providing support for all shows alongside Iron Lung and Bone Sickness. Additional regional tour actions, including a full East Coast attack this Fall, will be announced shortly.

Death Metal Chuggers RESISTANCE have announced the artwork and title of their forthcoming fifth studio album. Titled, The Seeds Within, the album will be released later this year under a label to be announced.

The band has posted a studio trailer for The Seeds Within, check it out below:

Guitarist Oli Dris commented about the album: “The CD elaborates the human race and its defects. How we desperately seek forgiveness, how coward we are towards our reality. The lyrical content is heavy and depressive. It metaphorically pictures how helpless we are facing whatever comes at us. The music is structured and shaped around this concept. Rhythm is the essence but melody plays its part bringing freshness when needed and making the listener’s journey flawless. More brutal, more aggressive and heavier than ever, Resistance matured and will crush!”

SEPREVATION – Announces New Album ‘Consumed’ And Reveals Details

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Seprevation - promo band pic - 2014 - #440386

UK death thrashers Seprevation today announces the release of their debut full-length album ‘Consumed’ which is to be independently released 10th May 2014.

“Truly evil sounding death metal from Bristol, true to the 80′s and 90′s masters. For fans of Death, Possessed, Sadistic Intent etc.” – Terrorizer Magazine

That aforementioned is just one of many descriptions made of the Death/Thrash maniacs. Formed in 2011 in Bristol, England; since their inception Seprevation have been roaming throughout the UK laying siege with a battery of hate filled lyrics and a sound to kick your pearly whites to dust, Seprevation are here for a reason and one reason only… to shatter and destroy.

2012 saw the band supporting underground heavyweights Gorguts, Wormrot, Onslaught, Cannabis Corpse and many more which eventually earned the band a place at Bloodstock Festival. 2012 also marked the release of the Seprevation debut record, an EP entitled ‘Ritual Abuse’.

In 2013 the band picked up the pace signing a deal with Chaotic Tapestry Management before hitting the road with Californian Gods of gore Exhumed. That same year Seprevation jetted out to 16th Cellar Studios in Rome, Italy with acclaimed producer Stefano Morabito (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance, Eyeconoclast, Acrania, Bloodshot Dawn) to lay down tracks for the debut full-length album.

A near year has dawned. Bigger, stronger and more devastating than ever, Seprevation are set to unleash hell armed with their brand new album ‘Consumed’.

Guitarist Joss Farrington comments on ‘Consumed’, “I think fans of ‘Ritual Abuse’ will really like it, its more of the same in many ways, plenty of shred and old school worship but it’s definitely steering in our own direction, as the writing process went on the songs became more and more diverse, songs like ‘Between Two Worlds and Dreams’ were written last and you can really hear the difference.”

“If you thought ‘Ritual Abuse’ was pretty great then buy this because it’s 100 times better, 3 words – Old School Worship.”

________________________________

Raul Gonzalez is the man behind the ‘Consumed’ artwork. “He did the ‘Ritual Abuse’ art too”, comments Joss. “I suppose if there was to be a concept or theme, it would be about death, and all the bullshit that follows with it, depression, loss, escape etc., the idea of being consumed by something you cannot control.”

1. Divine Devastation

2. Servants of Suffering

3. Ascension of Agony

4. Sarcophagal Chamber

5. Dreams

6. Slave To The Grave

7. In Torment They Burn

8. Sea Of Thoughts

9. Postmortem Lividity

10. Between Two Worlds

2014 Has been fairly quiet for Witch Cross so far, but there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes. As you may have read HERE, we are honoured to have our version of Angel Witch’s eponymous song on the newly released KEEP IT TRUE album, and we also have another tribute track in the works. our studio is currently undergoing a big refurbishment, and later this year we’ll resume work and the large number of demos guitarist Mike Koch and I already have written as a basis for the third album.

But more immediately, in just under three weeks, we’ll be hitting the road again and convening in Stadtskanaal, Holland  to play once again for our amazing Dutch fans at the Very ‘Eavy Festival, which features a host of great bands such as NWOBHM legends Tygers of Pan Tang and Dutch metal band Picture, who I…

OVERKILL – COVER ARTWORK AND TRACK LISTING OF “WHITE DEVIL ARMORY” UNVEILED!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Overkill - White Devil Armory - promo cover pic - 2014

New Jersey Thrash Metal veterans OVERKILL will release their new album, White Devil Armory, on July 18, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The effort was tracked at Gear Recording and will be mixed by Greg Reely, who also worked on 2012′s The Electric Age.

The track listing of  White Devil Armory will be as follows:

01. Freedom Rings
02. Where There’s Smoke…
03. Pig
04. Amorist
05. Down To The Bone
06. Bitter Pill
07. King Of The Rat Bastards
08. Another Day To Die
09. It’s All Yours
10. In The Name

________________________________

Said OVERKILL in a statement: “We are still working on the new record, but this is gonna be worth the wait, with more old-school, face-melting thrash!”

Speaking to Steppin’ Out magazine, OVERKILL vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth stated about the band’s upcoming album: “The new record has a blend of what we’ve done over the past half-decade. I’m noticing it’s a more punchy heavy metal record with more dimension than the last record had. Where is it going to end up on the food chain? I really don’t know. But my feeling is it’s an eclectic collection of moments from us. “The Electric Age” came across, to me, as kind a of two-dimensional Thrash record. This one is punchy but has a whole different bunch of ways to go and things to hear on it.”

OVERKILL released a very special limited tour edition of  “The Electric Age” in Europe on April 19, 2013 via Nuclear Blast. The limited 2CD tour edition included the regular album as well as four additional live tracks on a bonus CD, recorded at The Metro in Sidney, Australia on September 25, 2010.

HELLOWEEN – ANNOUNCES THEIR RETURN TO NUCLEAR BLAST

Founded in 1984 and hailed as one of the pioneering Power Metal bands from Germany, the Hamburg-based quintet HELLOWEEN is celebrating their 30th Anniversary in 2014 and have announced their return to Nuclear Blast’s worldwide artist family.

“As a label, Nuclear Blast is ‘Heavy Metal to the bone,’” shares HELLOWEEN vocalist Andi Deris, “and we are really looking forward to working together with a lot of familiar faces.”

Nuclear Blast’s founder & label owner Markus Staiger is overwhelmed at bringing the band back into the fold. “We are more than proud that HELLOWEEN is part of the Nuclear Blast family again,” he states. “All those years we had a friendship-like connection and our ways crossed on a regular basis at concerts and festivals. HELLOWEEN to us is a matter of the heart. There’s not only the two records we released [The Dark Ride in 2000 and Rabbit Don’t Come Easy in 2003], but they’re an act that has influenced me and many of our employees. Together there are big plans and we are looking forward to having another productive and successful cooperation.”

Following HELLOWEEN’s appearances on the European summer festival circuit, the band will enter Mi Sueño Studio on the island of Tenerife off the coast of Morocco with producer Charlie Bauerfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, HAMMERFALL, PRIMAL FEAR) to record a new studio album for an early 2015 release.

Last month, Nuclear Blast released special edition re-issues of The Dark Ride and Rabbit Don’t Come Easy, featuring 3 bonus tracks on each album, which can be ordered from the Nuclear Blast USA Webshop.

Straight Out Of Hell, HELLOWEEN’s latest studio album released in early 2013, debuted on the German album chart at #4 – the band’s highest chart entry in their home country to date – and held this position for five weeks. The album had five other “Top Ten” album entries in Europe and also cracked the American Billboard Top 100 chart with an entry at #97.
