Lonewolf - promo band collage - 2014 - #7707

From Massacre Records:

The history of LONEWOLF, hailing from Grenoble (France), began back in 1992. They played True Heavy Metal since the very beginning and soon released several demo tapes as well as a 7” and recorded even an album, which unfortunately never got released and is referred to as “the lost album”. Following a bad experience with a French label, LONEWOLF split up in 1996.

They came back in 2000, along with the demo “March Into The Arena”, which was re-released as the band’s debut album via Goi Music in 2001.

The second album “Unholy Paradise” followed two years later. “Made In Hell” was released in 2008 via Eat Metal, followed by “The Dark Crusade” in 2009 (via Kathargo Records/Killer Metal Records). The band’s latest albums are “Army Of The Damned” (2012, Napalm Records) and “The Fourth And Final Horseman” (2013, Napalm Records).

LONEWOLF were the first French band ever to play in Greece and were opening act for Grave Digger at their first gig in France. During the past decade, LONEWOLF went on headliner EU tour w/ Dragonsfire and Iron Fate in 2011 and were part of the “Wolfsnächte Tour” 2012, along with Powerwolf, Stormwarrior and Mystic Prophecy. They also played at festivals such as the Up The Hammers (GR), Headbangers Open Air (GER), Hard Rock Session (FR), Beastival (DE) or the Metalfest Open Airs (DE and AT).

LONEWOLF’s new album “Cult Of Steel” will be released in autumn 2014 via Massacre Records!

BULLET – NEW ALBUM “STORM OF BLADES” AND EUROPEAN TOUR ANNOUNCED!

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Bullet - band promo pic - 2014 - #99703

On September 5th (Sweden: 03.09., UK: 08.09., US: 09.09.) the new BULLET album called Storm Of Blades will hit the stores. It is their fifth longplayer and the first featuring the band’s new guitar player Alexander Lyrbo, who replaced Erik Almström in 2012.

“This is a fast and heavy back to the roots album,” the band comments. A lot of the feeling, BULLET had in the beginning, is there but with an up-to-date sound and craftsmanship.

“Now with the young blood Alex on the guitar, always thirsty for Metal, the songs ended up just like that: Heavier, faster and more raw than on previous albums. We can now at last truthfully say; this is our best album this far and most likely the rawest since the Heavy Metal Highway recording in 2002”

The album title Storm Of Blades came up during a soundcheck before a show last year. “We wanted to make the toughest Bulletsong ever and this riff popped up. The first impression was the image of knifes falling from the sky and the title »Storm Of Blades« was born. To make this song the title track of our new album became a must as it is a tale about destruction, apocalypse and horror!”

Storm Of Blades was recorded during December/January 2014 and April/May 2014 at the Pama Studio in Torsås, Sweden. Produced by BULLET and Magnus “Mankan” Sedenberg.

Right after some summer festivals and the album release, BULLET will be on the road again, along with two well-chosen support bands. “Stallion and Striker will be our fellow hell raisers on the first leg, and this tour should not let a fan of Heavy Metal music down. We will raise hell, we will drink beer, we will bang our heads together and kill grunge… again! Prepare for the storm of blades!”

Unspeakable Axe Records To Release ALGEBRA’s “Feed The Ego” On Sept. 2nd, 2014

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

Algebra - Feed The Ego - promo cover pic

Unspeakable Axe Records has announced the September 2nd release of Feed the Ego, from Swiss thrashers ALGEBRA.

ALGEBRA is superficially an unusual moniker for a thrash band, calling to mind mathematical precision and maybe pencil-snapping frustration rather than the blitzkrieg attack of Slayer, et al. But as one absorbs Swiss thrash machine ALGEBRA’s music, the name makes increasingly more sense. Both the math and the anger are here – the former in the unreasonably tight playing, complex riffs and spiraling lead work; and the latter in the lyrics, which tackle all manner of modern-day frustrations.

Take for example the opening track “Survival Nowadays.” Over a pummeling riff assault reminiscent of Sepultura, Testament, Coroner and more, the gruff vocalist barks about what life in 2014 has done to humankind. And it’s not a pretty picture. We are soft, we are lazy, we are complacent. The song is criticism honed to a knife’s edge. It would be hard to swallow if it didn’t sound so damn good.

The aforementioned “Survival Nowadays” can be heard below:

ALGEBRA’s debut album was self-released in 2012 and reissued by Stormspell Records afterward. Now they will follow that up with their sophomore effort. Feed The Ego satiates thrash-hungry listeners with nine aggressively complicated calculations, all mixed and mastered by Andy Classen. Unspeakable Axe Records will release this album on September 2nd, 2014.
