Medicine Man marks the bands 3rd release with label president Bill Chavis. Both Snake Eyes Seven (2007) and 13 Crows (2010) were released with Bill. “I am very happy to have Cole and company back on-board. Cole and I developed a great friendship from day one. He is a great person and loyal friend to the end, not to mention a prolific riff master and writer. We have worked together for so long it just seems logical for me to be involved with the next Snake Eyes Seven chapter. Cole called and said will you do this, I said when do we start? I discovered Cole and his band years ago but actually turned him down the first few times. It was only after Cole’s non-stop perseverance that I caved in. The first release was OK but 13 Crows was outstanding. I don’t think it caught on but it was a great release. Medicine Man proves to be the best Snake Eyes Seven release yet and judging by the demo material, it will be a game changer.



Snake Eyes Seven now features Cole ‘The Madman’ Stevens – guitar, Cam McLeod – guitar, Danny Deane – vocals, Mike Cillis – bass, and Erik Young – drums.

Snake Eyes Seven recently launched their Facebook page with a new website to follow in the coming days. More details on Medicine Man including soundbytes and other information will be revealed soon.

KAINE are pleased to announce that they have been chosen to open for Savage Messiah on the 21st of November at the Portland Arms Cambridge.

The band was given the support slot after being chosen by fans in a poll that was run by the promoter, Millerton Events Cambridge. Kaine won over half the votes despite competing against 11 other bands for the slot.

Band founder Rage Sadler said:

“Many of our fans have requested we play with Savage Messiah for a long time, seeing that we are two revival bands with styles that complement each other well. We are extremely lucky to have been given this rare opportunity to actually do this gig by our fans. Savage Messiah are on a big label and its not very easy to work with one another, so we are very excited about being able to finally do this. We will be playing a number of our older thrash songs at the show which makes this gig even more special for the band. It will also be fun to catch up with Mira (Savage Messiah, bass) who we befriended while he was playing in Monument. This will definitely be a gig not to miss.”

For more information on the show, please visit the event page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/721922324539778/

In further news, the band’s critically acclaimed album The Waystone will be released on vinyl and CD in North American on October 14th 2014 via Static Tension Records.

AGHAST! – Reveal Debut Album Details

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 11, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Aghast! - promo band pic - 2014 - #8538

Formed in 2006 after a drinking competition, UK extreme metallers Aghast! have finally scheduled the release of their debut album. *Applause*

Entitled ‘All The Rage’, the album will see the light of day on 1st October 2014 and in their own words expect “Fast. Heavy. Catchy.”

Since their formation, Aghast! have recorded a number of EP’s and have gained a reputation for delivering the goods every time. Their most recent record ‘Live Dangerously’ seen media attention soar with Thrash Hits commenting on the EP as, “…three tracks of straight-up speed, for those of you who like stuff where guitars shred faster than a Betterware onion slicer and the sound of drummers feet snapping away from their ankles”, while Metal Hammer said, “Blasting fury? Check. Venomous brutality designed to tear flesh from bone? Check. Sadistically evil in a way that’s worrying? Check. Really fucking good? Hell yes.”

Why the long wait for a debut you say? Well… “We have spent years experimenting and honing our sound” commented the band. “But you only get one opportunity to release your debut album and ‘All The Rage’ is a statement of intent. It exemplifies every aspect of the Aghast! sound and our attitude to making heavy music. We wanted it to be brutally heavy with a recognisable groove and packed with hooks that people can grab on to. Heavy metal should be entertaining and fun to listen to and that’s what we feel we have achieved with this record. It is a thrill ride from start to finish and we hope that everyone can get on board with us!”

KAINE – Sign U.S. Record Deal With Static Tension Recordings

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 10, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Kaine - The Waystone - promo cover pic - 2014

British heavy metallers Kaine have just signed a special record agreement with newly founded Static Tension Recordings.The record deal gives Static Tension exclusive rights to market and sell Kaine’s album, The Waystone, in the United States over the next two years. Kaine is excited to be working with Static Tension on the upcoming US release which is scheduled for October 14th, 2014.

The band’s guitarist/vocalist, Rage Sadler, comments: “I am very pleased we have come to an agreement with Static Tension. This is the perfect deal for us as this gives them exclusive rights to sell and market the band in America while we receive a fair share of the income from record sales. The deal also enables us to continue selling our own CDs and allows us to retain all of our own digital and merch income. The majority of European labels are only interested in ripping bands off and we really couldn’t do this sort of deal with the labels that approached us. This definitely isn’t the case with Static Tension who are firmly in the 21st Century and moving with the times as we are.”

Kyle Stevens of Static Tension, who has 26 years’ experience in the music industry, having worked for the likes of Universal Music Group, stated: “I am extremely pleased to have Kaine as my first signing to Static Tension Recordings. They’re continued hard work, business savvy, and most importantly, their song writing skills are a breath of fresh air in today’s stagnant talent pool. Proving that Traditional Heavy Metal is alive and well will make the forefathers from the New Wave of Heavy Metal proud.”

Kaine have previously released a statement regarding their DIY route of releasing albums. Read it here.
