______________________________

Seattle trad-metallers ZERO DOWN have signed to Minotauro Records and a fall/winter release is set for the release of their fourth album, tentatively titled No Limit to the Evil. Stay tuned for the release date.

After releasing their last CD independently, ZERO DOWN is now set and excited to release their next ripper on Minotauro Records in the Fall/Winter of 2014. Once again the band will be reuniting with Martin Feveyear (QOTSA, SCREAMING TREES, DUFF MCKEAGAN’S LOADED, etc) at Jupiter Studios in Seattle to lay down this beast and packaging will include artwork by the master of Metal art, Ed Repka (MEGADETH, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, DEATH, MISFITS, etc). Tentatively titled No Limit To The Evil, this new opus will feature ten new cuts and sure to be Minotauro’s heaviest release to date, so scream for me motherfuckers!

Formed in 2002, ZERO DOWN consists of five veteran musicians from the Seattle Metal/Punk Rock scene that cast iron 70’s Arena Rock with classic NWOBHM guitar riffs to bring the old school Metal traditions to the present! Over the past decade ZERO DOWN have released three scorching slabs of their Metal Rock (Old Time Revival, Good Times At The Gates of Hell and Looking To Start A Riot) and shared the stage with a variety of national acts including UFO, MOTLEY CRUE, DIAMOND HEAD, Y&T, RAVEN, ACCEPT, GODSMACK, THE ACCUSED, THE SUPERSUCKERS, UDO, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, PRONG and PAUL DIANNO.

Critical Praise:

“Hands, er, down, Seattle’s Zero Down are America’s best unsigned band, and to be that, you gotta have more than one beer-bongin record of clanging rock God-ness, and well, Zero Down have two, 2005’s Old Time Revival and now this Ed Repka-painted ripper!”

- Martin Popoff (BWBK Magazine & Hard Radio.com)

“Chock full of bombastic blues-rock riffs and cocksure swagger. Imagine how Zeke, Scissorfight and Airbourne might sound if they got drunk and jammed together. It’s classic without sounding dated and reverential without sounding copyist.” – Caren Gibson (Metal Hammer Magazine)

SAHHR – Los Angeles-Based Blackened Metal Legion To Release Debut EP This Halloween Via Domestic Genocide; Teaser Video Posted

Posted in Black Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Sahhr - debut EP - promo cover pic - 2014

Southern California-based Blackened Metal perpetrators, SAHHR, are readying to drop their self-titled debut EP upon the masses this Halloween!

Featuring past and current members of Skull And Bullets, Dowager, Scarecrow and Unwritten Law, SAHHR fuses all the prime elements of black metal, death metal and metalcore into a bestial mix of unrepentant audio torment fit for devout followers of Watain, 1349, Goatwhore and even Lamb Of God. The three-hymns comprising their forthcoming EP were written by vocalist Ryllyeh and guitarist Aarsoth, recorded at Lot 54 Studio in Huntington Beach, California by Dylan-James Ehren Brock (Ghost Of Abel, Skull And Bullets, Dowager, Intestinal Buffet) and will be released via Domestic Genocide on the unholiest of days, Halloween, alongside a special bloodbath of a video for second track, “Slay The Savior.”

Comments vocalist Ryllyeh: “We really feel people are going to dig the EP because these three songs really encompass the true scope of our sound. We try our best to stretch the limits of traditional black metal by adding elements from many different genres of extreme music, while still keeping it fluid and of course, at all times, HEAVY. We are pleased to join the Domestic Genocide roster as we’ve had dealings with the owner, Black Moor, before. He has very eclectic taste in metal and thought he would understand our sound. He also has a killer crew of people working behind the scenes so we know this debut will get in the correct hands.”

Sahhr – Track Listing:

  1. Altar Of Maggots
  2. Slay The Savior
  3. Miscreant

SAHHR formed earlier this year by singer/songwriter Ryllyeh. A veteran of the New York City punk and metal scenes since the early 1980s, Ryllyeh’s (AKA-Joe Truck, also a world-renowned tattoo artist) past musical endeavors include time spent in ’80s Deathrock bands Scarecrow and Braineaters, the latter of which included ex-Samhain guitarist, Damien. He also plays bass and screams in doom heavyweights-Dowager. Ryllyeh united with guitarist Aarsoth earlier this year and instantly began composing what would become the trio of tracks occupying the EP.

Sahhr will be released via Domestic Genocide Records on October 31st, 2014. In the meantime check out the twenty-second teaser clip below:

SAHHR Personnel:

Ryllyeh – Vocals

Aarsoth – Guitars

Nungh – Drums

Jukgoh – Bass

Daoloth – Guitars

ORANGE GOBLIN – Set To Return To North America

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 16, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Orange Goblin - Down - North America Tour - promo flyer - 2014

With ORANGE GOBLIN‘s Back From The Abyss full-length now three weeks away from release, the band has confirmed the first North American tour in support of the record. Set to begin December 1st and run through December 21st, ORANGE GOBLIN will return to the stage touring alongside Down, Bl’ast, and labelmates, King Parrot!

Vocalist Ben Ward comments, “I remember being a spotty 19-year-old rushing out to the record store to buy the first Down album NOLA the very day it came out in 1994. Now, twenty years on, I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming that ORANGE GOBLIN are heading back to North America as main support to the mighty Down. It really is fairytale stuff for us. Down are one of the bands that are the reason ORANGE GOBLIN exists. To be given this opportunity to go out to promote our brand new album, Back From The Abyss, to the Down fans is just a dream come true the rest of the band and I can’t wait to get started. The fact that we also get to see Bl’ast and King Parrot every night just makes it all so hard to believe! Hail the Leaf! Hail the RIFF! Hail DOWN!”

Recorded earlier this year, Back From The Abyss reunites ORANGE GOBLIN with producer Jamie Dodd; who served as producer on the band’s best-selling album in North America to date – 2012’s A Eulogy For The Damned. Two songs already have fans globally excited; Loudwire and Metal Hammer premiered the Motörhead-tinged “The Devil’s Whip” to overwhelming success on August 15th. Last week Noisey premiered the first video from the album for the song “Sabbath Hex.” The band is currently working on a second video for the song “Mythical Knives” which is expected to be completed by month’s end.
