Michigan City, Indiana’s own Sludge/Stoner band YELLOWTOOTH is preparing to hit the studio in September to record Crushed By The Wheels of Progress, the follow-up to the band’s 2012 debut album Disgust.

The album will be released through Orchestrated Misery Recordings. The band has eight songs ready to be sent into the audio stratosphere. Song titles include “Before I Return to Dust,” “The Spiral Stairs,” “Meet Mr. Mossberg,” “Climbing the Mountain,” “Manifesto,” and “Season’s End.”

Guitarist/vocalist Henry McGinnis commented on the new material:

“We haven’t really changed our writing style since the debut came out, but refined it a bit to suit our needs. Having been together since 2008 it’s just a natural progression of who we are.  The songs are still very heavy, and some parts still have the southern flair we have grown to enjoy since the beginning.”

YELLOWTOOTH is also gearing up for several shows this fall in the Chicagoland area with label-mates PSYCHOMANCER.

“‘Southern-fried stoner-sludge-doom?’ Fuck it. It’s heavy. It’s bad-ass. And it’s perfect when you’re chasin’ Beam with Busch Light.” – Heavy Planet

_______________________________

Melodic Death Metal band LAIKA are proud to announce they will be holding their local CD release party for ‘Somnia’ (out Sept 30th via Filth Regime Records) in Winnipeg, MB on October 11th at The Windsor Hotel (187 Garry Street) with local support from Tyrants Demise, Mortalis, Withdrawal, and Occvlt Hand. Admission is $10 with the first 25 people in the door receive a free copy of ‘Somnia’.

“This is a momentous occasion for us all because not only are we celebrating the release of Somnia we are also celebrating 5 years as a band, we will be playing Somnia in full and a cover or two.

The band has unleashed two tracks for fans from the upcoming release ‘The Immortal’ and ‘Escalation of Terror’. Both can be heard below.

“The immortal is a track that touches the subject of the capacity of human strength. How far ones willing to go and pushing that thought until it leads to loss of life or some other extreme.  Something we all witness in day-to-day life.  This track is one of our favorites on the album and really shows the dynamic that Laika has as a whole.” comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

Album Pre-Order - https://laikawpg.bandcamp.com/

Founded in 2009 as a six-piece and named after the Soviet dog who became one of the first animals to travel to space, the band unleashed a self-released album in 2010, then hit the road, sharing the stage with the likes of All Shall Perish, Kataklysm, Necronomicon and Unleash the Archers, before temporarily backing away from the spotlight.

Driven by a thirst for evolution, LAIKA spent two years constructing and writing its upcoming full-length album, ‘Somnia’, filling it with melodic hooks, ominous keys and lyrics that are bound to get stuck in listeners’ heads to an almost maddening degree. Brace yourself, as this fall; LAIKA will hit the scene hard, just like they did all those years ago.

ANNIHILATION – Reveal Details About New EP

Annihilation - promo band pic - 2014 - #44940

Portugal’s best known Death Metal band ANNIHILATION are proud to announce that their new EP The Undivided will be released on November 4th 2014. Containing 6 tracks of absolutely punishing Death Metal, The Undivided is a stunning follow-up to the band’s debut album. A single from the EP, entitled “The Great Cycle” was released a few months ago as a digital download.

Listen to “The Great Cycle” here: http://annihilationband.bandcamp.com/track/the-great-cycle

The band’s founder Fabio Da Silva released the following statement about the EP:

“We are proud to announce the release of our new EP The Undivided. Consisting of six songs, the EP is a precursor to our next full-length which will be one song connected by three parts. We have been working  on these songs for the last two years and there is a big evolution between this EP and our first album Against The Storm. The songs are more technical, dissonant and intricate than our debut album. Lyrically I spent a lot of time researching and working on the lyrics. The EP and the album focus on my vision about humanity as energy beings all connected to one source of energy. One conscious entity that connects all beings into one. An entity that has been separated from his source and originated the human species, the voyage of part of that consciousness when the human being faces death and finally connects again with the source.”

SIXX:A.M. – LONG-AWAITED THIRD ALBUM, “MODERN VINTAGE”, RELEASES ON OCTOBER 7TH!

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 26, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

From Eleven Seven Music:

Los Angeles, CA – The long-awaited third release from SIXX:A.M., the band comprised of James Michael (vocals), DJ Ashba (guitar) and Nikki Sixx (bass) is entitled MODERN VINTAGE. Produced by James Michael, the album will be available on October 7, 2014 with the first single “Gotta Get It Right” hitting iTunes and radio back on August 5, 2014.

Says bassist Nikki Sixx: “Like our favorite bands from the 1970s, Sixx:A.M. is rooted in songwriting, musicianship and lyrics – three core elements that helped to define that era. Sixx:A.M. has taken even more pages from this book on “Gotta Get It Right” and the rest of Modern Vintage, having hopefully created a record that demands to be discovered again and again.”

The video for “Gotta Get It Right” – directed by Paul Brown – premiered on Vevo, back on August 6, 2014.

Shares vocalist James Michael: “On the first two albums, Sixx:AM established a musical freedom that few bands get to enjoy. “Gotta Get It Right” is clearly a birth child of that creative freedom and an exciting next step for us as our goal was to create something which confounds both expectation and categorization”.

Adds guitarist DJ Ashba: “Gotta Get it Right” is a great example of how Sixx:AM has set out to celebrate the music that has influenced us over the years and we truly feel we’ve made a genre defying album with Modern Vintage ”

MODERN VINTAGE – Tracklisting: 
1. Stars, 
2. Gotta Get It Right, 
3. Relief
, 4. Get Ya Some, 
5. Let’s Go, 
6. Drive
, 7. Give Me A Love, 
8. Hyperventilate, 
9. High On The Music
, 10. Miracle, 
11. Before It’s Over

SIXX:A.M.’s previous two albums, THE HEROIN DIARIES and THIS IS GONNA HURT – both of which were accompanied by books of the same name – have sold over 600,000 copies and spawned 2 number one radio singles, “Life Is Beautiful” and “This Is Gonna Hurt”.

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, hard rock news, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 26, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Pink Velvet Krush - promo band pic - band logo - 2014 - #7791

Long Island, New York: “Ball and Chain” – a pilot track from Pink Velvet Krush, the new band comprised of guitarist Sean Quidgeon (ex Dust N’ Bones), guitarist Greg Polcari (ex Britny Fox, Steelheart), drummer Ryche Green (ex Bulletboys), bassist Steve Rivera (ex Surrender), and vocalist Doug ‘Savage’ Ramey (ex Vaudeville), is now streaming online via their Reverb Nation.

The track is also available for a FREE download from Reverb Nation just for joining the Pink Velvet Krush mailing list.

Pink Velvet Krush also signed with HighVolMusic to a multi-release deal starting with their debut E.P. due this fall.

The band returned from a weekend warrior run of successful shows. “We’ve written about 15 songs and wanted to test the product, see how the set went over in front of people. These shows were a great way to accomplish that. It was also a great way to work out any kinks for the upcoming all original Danger Danger show this Saturday August 30th at Revolution in Amityville, NY. The label still has few tickets left for anyone that may need one.” says bassist Steve Rivera.

Pink Velvet Krush will enter Tropic Digital Studios on Tuesday the 26th to begin recording their debut E.P.

PVK has launched their official website at www.pvkrush.com. More information to follow.

Stone Says: If Ball and Chain is a taste of what’s to come from the debut E.P. from Pink Velvet Krush, then I am one Hard Rock lovin’, psyched-out son-of-a-bitch! Metal be thy name.
