Costa Rican Death Metallers CORPSE GARDEN will release new single “Suspended Over the Abyss” for purchase digitally on September 23 on i-Tunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and other digital retailers. The song is now streaming, listen below:

The single comes from upcoming sophomore full-length album Ecdysis for which the band is currently seeking a record label to release. Interested parties should get in touch with Jon@theflamingarts.eu.

The new single is representative of the band’s old school, technical Death Metal sound combined with progressive passages, killer solos and dense atmospheres.”Suspended over the Abyss” reflects the band’s new direction, due in part to lineup changes and musical growth since guitarist Esteban Sancho, bassist Carlos Venegas and vocalist Felipe Tencio joined the band. Ecdysis was crafted from December 2013 to May 2014 in Bushido Audio Productions in Costa Rica; it was recorded, produced and mixed by Juan Pablo Calvo. Album artwork was created by Alexander L. Brown of BNB Illustration and Design based on the concept provided by the band.

According to the band: “Ecdysis means the shedding or molting of an outer layer of skin particularly on snakes, it means transformation for us. We shed our skin and changed our approach to music in every aspect and this is what we wanted the album’s cover and title to reflect that. The concept is based on the steps of Solve Et Coagula, the alchemical process; making reference to Carl Jung’ studies of the collective unconscious, psychology and alchemy. This conceptual piece is crafted to capture the journey through all the stages and emotions finding the underlying patterns of order in darkness and nature of the psyche.”

CORPSE GARDEN is a Death Metal act hailing from Heredia, Costa Rica. It was formed in early 2008 due to the dissolution of a gore/grind band. In 2009, they recorded a demo and in 2011 they hit the studio for the second time to record their debut album Burnt by the Light in Bushido Audio Productions with Producer Juan Pablo Calvo. The album was mastered by Jens Bogren at the Fascination Street Studios in Sweden where bands like Opeth, Katatonia, Bloodbath, Amon Amarth, recorded. Burnt by the Light was released in January 2012.

CORPSE GARDEN entered the Wacken Metal Battle Central America, competing against nearly 90 bands from all over the region. On March 31, 2012 CORPSE GARDEN became the first Costa Rican band to win this battle and to play in the official worldwide Wacken Metal Battle on August 1, 2012.

CORPSE GARDEN has shared stage with Disgorge (Mex), Morbid Angel (USA), Malevolent Creation (USA), Mnemic (Den) and Behemoth (Pol) as well as touring in Central America and Europe.

ORANGE GOBLIN – Premieres New Video Via Noisey; Back From The Abyss To Drop Next Month

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Orange Goblin - promo band pic - 2014 - #88640

With the release of Back From The Abyss, the forthcoming new full-length from Stoner Metal icons ORANGE GOBLIN, now less than one month away, Noisey thrusts forth opening rager, “Sabbath Hex.”

Bedecked in high-speed psychedelic visuals and an occultish-vibe, the Michael Dickinson-produced clip is currently slaying eye holes via Noisey at THIS LOCATION

And if you missed it, check out the Motörheadian dirt rock swagger of “The Devil’s Whip” still streaming at Loudwire HERE.

Recorded earlier this year in London, ORANGE GOBLIN‘s Back From The Abyss was produced by Jamie Dodd, mastered at Turan Audio and follows the band’s most successful release, 2012’s A Eulogy For The Damned, and the recent reissue of their 2007 album Healing Through Fire. Rocking hard as fans have come expect, Back From The Abyss shows not only the band’s signature blues ‘n’ doom persuasion but the high-caliber of their musicianship.

Orange Goblin - Back From The Abyss - promo cover pic

In an advance 9/10 review of the record, This Is Not A Scene crowns Back From The Abyss, “another triumph for ORANGE GOBLIN,” furthering that it maintains the band’s, “consistent level of songwriting and performance all the way through its twelve tracks that make this their most accomplished album to date. Proof that hard work does indeed pay off.”

Together since 1995, ORANGE GOBLIN has released seven full-length studio albums. A Eulogy For The Damned was the band’s first for Candlelight Records and closed a five-year recording hiatus. The album was supported with the most live dates by the band in their history; touring that saw the band on North American soil first alongside Clutch then on a full-scale headlining tour that found them on thirty-eight stages across the US and Canada. Two videos were filmed and released for the album, including “Red Tide Rising” and the special Scion A/V video for “Acid Trials.”

Back From The Abyss will be released October 7th, 2014 via Candlelight Records. Preorder your copy at THIS LOCATION.

Posted in hardcore bands, hardcore music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Society Sucker - EP - promo cover pic - 2014

Just days before their self-titled 7″ hits the streets via Get This Right Records, Wilmington, North Carolina Hardcore outfit, SOCIETY SUCKER, deploys the EP’s bruising opening track.

Now playing at American Aftermath, “Sentenced” sets the pace for the thunderous five-track attack this fairly new but completely significant acts dishes out on the Society Sucker EP. States the site alongside the exclusive track premiere, “Society Sucker are out to decimate reality and crush all of your hopes and dreams. Taking cues from our Hardcore forefathers but staying as relevant as Trapped Under Ice and Suburban Scum, this band is definitely going to make waves…”

Reign fists upon your enemies to “Sentenced” playing at THIS LOCATION.

The EP’s “Repeat Offender” is also playing HERE.

Officially out on September 16th, Society Sucker will be available on four different color variations – one for the preorder (seafoam green), one for record release (seafoam green), one for the gold/yellow version and 1 for the black version – and together they form one larger image. Preorders are live at Get This Right Records HERE, and digital preorders HERE.

Society Sucker - publicity band pic - 2014 - #55257

Having quickly surged to the forefront of the quickly growing North Carolina hardcore scene since forming in the Summer of 2013, SOCIETY SUCKER takes lessons from classic bands like Subzero, Next Step Up and Merauder. Having recently hooked up with Get This Right Records for the unleashing of their first official release, the self-titled EP’s five enraged tracks are loaded with more brutal hooks than a fleet of whalers. Recorded in February of this year at The Skylight Studio with Vince Ratti and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.

The band has performed heavily regionally along the East Coast with an extensive list of local and international touring acts and is now booking shows in support of the new EP. A record release show for the 7″ was held on September 13th. SOCIETY SUCKER is a band committed to keeping Hardcore hard. This is the proof.

JEFF LABAR – “One For The Road” Debut Album Is A MUST Buy! Commendable First Week Billboard Chart Positions!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, music news, rock guitarists, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Jeff Labar - One For The Road - Billboard Charts - promo flyer-2014

Jeff LaBar’s solo debut album, One For The Road, was released back on August 26th, via Rat Pak Records. This is one Hard Rock CD I picked up on its release date and I cannot get enough of it in my system! One For The Road demonstrates the vocal, musical and songwriting talents of Jeff LaBar; from heavy hitting songs as No Strings, Asking For A Beating, One For The Road and Nightmare On My Street to the mellow acoustic instrumentals of Muse and Ode To Page. Hello Or Goodbye is a mid-tempo track, one that is musically and lyrically one of my favorite of favorites on this terrific album. Whoa!

This debut from Jeff LaBar is chock-full of Hard Rock relevance and loaded with juicy slices of how admirable Classic Rock sounds when recorded in present day! The guitar tones of Jeff LaBar are clear as day and darn fun to absorb! Jeff LaBar plays all guitars and bass, with an all-star cast of guest drummers. Cinderella fans rejoice! Classic Rock, 80’s Arena and Hard Rock fans of any generation should dig what Jeff LaBar has created on his debut. I sure have!

I declare this Jeff LaBar debut as A MUST BUY! Jeff LaBar has done good… real good… so good that his debut album landed in the Billboard charts on September 4th! Metal be thy name! Here is the Rockin’ roll-call:

* #130 Billboard Top 200

* #1 Heatseekers

* #38 Top Rock Albums

* #21 Top Indie Releases

* #14 Top Hard Rock Albums

* #110 Top Current Releases

BLASTFEST – Adds Seven More Bands To The Lineup!

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on September 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Blastfest - Bergen - Norway - Feb 2015 - promo festival flyer

Norway’s Blastfest has just unveiled another seven great reasons why you need to book the 19th – 21st of February 2015 off work. Today the festival organisers announce the addition of seven more bands to the billing including Finnish Folk Metal upstarts Finntroll, Melodic Black Metal sextet Moonsorrow and Ireland’s men of myth Primordial.

The Bergen festival is only in its second year and after having already announced acts such as At The Gates, Decapitated, Rotting Christ, Destruction and Asphyx amongst others and with more yet to come, it’s fair to say that Blastfest is already offering one of the finest Extreme Metal line-ups of 2015.

FINNTROLL

Finntroll - promo band pic - 2014 - #4590

In their spare time we at Blastfest like to pursue our native Norwegian interest of troll hunting. This led us deep into the woods of Finland, where we picked up quite the collection of healthy specimens. In February 2015 we’ll present them to you, on stage, under the moniker of Finntroll. Yes, the Finns are indeed booked and ready to wreak havoc with their extreme Folk Metal!

PRIMORDIAL

Primordial - promo band pic - 2014  - #20120

We witnessed them laying Beyond The Gates Festival in ruins, and we have seen them do amazing performances earlier, so we figured we’d invite them back to Bergen once again. Yupp, we’ve gotten hold of the mighty and epic Primordial for you! They will surely spirit the earth aflame with yet another of their absolutely brilliant performances.

MOONSORROW

Moonsorrow - promo band pic - 2014 - #33185

Yet another Finnish act!? Don’t mind if we do! They have never been to Bergen before, and we know they have quite a following over here as well, so we invited Moonsorrow to introduce their brand of Pagan/Folk- Black Metal. We have no idea what all those album titles translate to, but we know that the band are poised and ready to deliver you with the goods. Keep your Minttu bottle close and your spirits high!

MORGOTH

Morgoth - promo band pic - 2014 - #90703

Yes, we do indeed feel sorry for the Death Metal fanatic. Thus, we are continuing our line of classic Death Metal bands for the lineup, to ease whatever emotional distress the aforementioned group might struggle with. We have managed to get hold of the classic German band Morgoth. This will be their very first appearance on stage in Bergen!

CRIB45

Crib45 - promo band pic - 2014 - #09333

There’s no complete lineup without the inclusion of some up-and-coming acts. Since we have already been picking up Finnish acts en masse, we thought that we could very well add yet another one to Blastfest 2015. Crib45 is a Sludge Metal/Post-Hardcore act with a great promise of making an impact in the Metal scene. We are proud to welcome them as part of the Blastfest 2015 edition.

TORTORUM

Tortorum - promo band pic - 2014 - #71099

According to themselves, these guys are set on totally annihilating Blastfest 2015. They promise an utterly dark and psychotic delivery of the brilliant material that constitutes their hitherto two album releases. We are talking about Tortorum, the crazy bunch comprised of members hailing from such acclaimed acts as Aeternus, Gorgoroth, Dead To This World, Vulture Industries and Gravdal. Be prepared for an onslaught, or stay at home!

DJEVELKULT

Forged in the fiery pits of hell and expanding our Black Metal community outreach program, we present you with the Norwegian Black Metallers in Djevelkult.

GOATWHORE – Readies For Forthcoming Live Assaults; Additional Dates Announced

Posted in Metal, Music, rock music, metal music, rock music news, metal bands, music news with tags , , , , on September 12, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Goatwhore - promo band pic - 2014 - #66754

Louisiana blackened thrash perpetrators, GOATWHORE, are currently readying for their next round of headlining live assaults. Slated to commence in Houston on September 15th, the band will quash nearly two dozen US cities including recently added dates in Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, New York, Virginia, Georgia and Florida as well as five shows supporting death rock/horror punk icons, Samhain! From there, GOATWHORE will bring their canticles of chaos overseas for a European invasion with Dying Fetus, Malevolence and Fallujah. The lengthy expedition embarks on November 8th in Liege, Belgium and comes to a ceremonial close on December 19th in Hamburg, Germany.

Due to the upcoming birth of his first son, GOATWHORE bassist James Harvey will be sitting out both tours. In the interim, the band has enlisted bassist TA from San Antonio blackened death horde, HOD.

Comments Harvey of his absence, “Unfortunately, I will be staying home for the upcoming tour dates with Samhain as well as the European tour with Dying Fetus. This is due to the upcoming birth of my first son by my longtime girlfriend, Lorrena. He is due between the middle and the end of September and I will be staying home to fulfill my paternal duties. Obviously we have known about this for months and have planned accordingly – our friend TA from the Texas band, HOD, will be filling in on bass duties for the upcoming US tour. I am bummed that I will not be able to go back out on the road for the rest of the year, but I’m sure everyone understands the gravity of welcoming a new life into the world. I wish the best of luck to the guys on the upcoming runs and hope to see everyone soon.”
