From Massacre Records:

We’re delighted to announce the signing of REAPER from Germany!

The journey of REAPER began back in 1984 when Peter “Onkel Eff” Fickert (drums), Andreas Maus (guitar), Robert Kölling (guitar) und Matthias “Mäfju” Kraft (bass) decided to make music together. Within the first months, Robert Kölling was replaced by Daniel Zimmermann and singer Thomas Bennecke joined the band’s ranks.

Soon after the band’s formation, the band started to release first demos as well as the debut album “Beyond All Time” in 1990 via Bellaphon. The studio albums “The Years Within” (1992 via Mausoleum) and “Gardens Of Seth” (2009 via STF Records) followed, as well as other demos and CD Compilations.

The band’s line-up changed in the following years, currently featuring Daniel Zimmermann (lead vocals, guitar), Matthias Kraft (bass, backing vocals), Benni Lodewig (guitar, backing vocals) and Jan Breede (drums).

In the past 30 years, REAPER played a lot of gigs and were part of festivals such as the Ragnarock Open Air, Power Of Metal Festival, Masters Of Cassel and Swordbrothers Festival.

REAPER’s upcoming 4th full-length album “An Atheist Monument” is set to be released in late July via Massacre Records!

Craving - Danish tv commercial pic - 2014

German Melodic Death/Black Metal band CRAVING are being featured in a TV commercial for Samsung Galaxy S5 on Danish television. The spot is scheduled to run for the next three weeks and features the band’s cover of “Only Teardrops” by Emmelie de Forest. Watch the ad below:

Since 2006, CRAVING has masterfully blended Black and Death metal with soaring melodies and folk influences. In October of last year, Apostasy Records released the band’s sophomore album, At Dawn. With lyrics written in German, Russian and English and a noticeable progression from their 2012 debut, At Dawn stands as one of the most intriguing and varied records in recent memory. Guest appearances on At Dawn include Helge Stang (Ex-Equilibrium), Chris Caffery (Ex-Savatage), Niels Löffler (Ordan Ogan) and Agalaz (Obscurity). The official music video for CRAVING’s cover of “Only Teardrops” can be seen below:

Tankard - R.I.B. - promo cover pic - 2014

German Thrash Metal heroes TANKARD just revealed the album cover for their upcoming new album R.I.B.. The artwork was brought to life by Patrick Strogulski, who is a student of Sebastian Krüger, the former TANKARD cover artist.

Mastermind Gerre states:
“R.I.B. continues the story of Chemical Invasion. The crazy professor is back is takes revenge on mankind, because he failed in 1987! The cover is done again by Patrick Strogulski, an apprentice of Sebastian Krüger and really hits the spot! As always with Tankard, things shouldn’t be taken too seriously!”

The band also released the R.I.B. track listing:

01. War Cry
02. Fooled By Your Guts
03. R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)
04. Riders Of The Doom
05. Hope Can’t Die
06. No One Hit Wonder
07. Breakfast for Champions
08. Enemy Of Order
09. Clockwise To Deadline
10. The Party Ain’t Over ‘Til We Say So

Taking inspiration from the motto “never change a winning team”, the guys did the recording again with producer Michael Mainx (BÖHSE ONKELZ, DER W, D-A-D, DISBELIEF), who also produced the last two albums.

ACCEPT – REVEAL TITLE AND ARTWORK OF NEW STUDIO ALBUM

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on April 6, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Accept - Blind Rage - promo cover pic - 2014

German Heavy Metal legends ACCEPT have announced Blind Rage as the title to their third studio album since their 2010 comeback and fourteenth studio album of their career. Set for release this summer in North America, Blind Rage will be produced, mixed, and mastered by Andy Sneap (EXODUS, MEGADETH, OPETH, ARCH ENEMY).

“Something happened to us, something subliminal and impetuous,” states ACCEPT guitarist and main songwriter Wolf Hoffmann. “It is wild and scary and it’s called Blind Rage! The cover artwork done by Daniel Goldsworthy shows the beast coming over us – in blind rage – all over the planet. Wherever we go, whenever you turn on the TV, there is blind rage in the works – either natural catastrophes or man-made madness.”

Proudly representing the “Made in Germany” trademark, ACCEPT fashioned distinct musical blueprints that have influenced multiple generations of followers. They have kept their music and artistry relevant around the world and have overcome staggering odds to maintain international careers for over three decades.

The band’s 2010 career comeback album, Blood Of The Nations, debuted at #25 on the iTunes Top Rock Albums chart and at #187 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. In Canada, the album debuted at #53 on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Hard Albums chart.

ACCEPT’s 2012 album, Stalingrad, debuted at #81 on the Billboard Top 200 and clinched the #13 position on the Top Independent Albums chart. In Canada, the album debuted at #101 on the Top 200 Albums chart and #7 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart.

MANTRUM – S/T EP From German Metal Warriors Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

MANTRUM – They’re from Germany. They’re a Metal band. They’re Metal legit. They’re unsigned. This morning, their Metal has kicked me in the face with (accepting) blunt Metal force! They’re MANTRUM. Whoa, am I psyched out that I discovered this MANTRUM band (or make that they discovered me first) on Twitter! That’s the way social media works in 2014 and cool Metal connections happen, more often than I can count, on these sites.

I’ve been listening to their (5 song) S/T EP over and over, the past hour/plus as I write this. MANTRUM plays some serious freaking Metal, my Metal brethren! Death Metal vocals, a ballistic rhythm section and still this band finds a way to add melodic fret work to compliment their speed and riffage. Do yourself a Metal favor right now and click that play button below! Stone would never steer you down the wrong Metal path! Metal be thy name!
