From Hell - Ascent From Hell - promo cover pic - 2014 - #7317

“A corpse wakes up in Hell and finds out he cannot rest and must return to the land of the living to find his soul that still lives on inside the body of a priest and drag it back to Hell. When the moon turns red, you must walk with The Walking Dead.”

________________________________

Oakland, California – FROM HELL is a new horror concept heavy metal band. Their debut release on Scourge Records on April 8th, 2014 is called Ascent From Hell and it is as heavy as it is epic! FROM HELL is the brainchild of George Anderson aka Aleister Sinn, the live narrator of this horror story. This project began in 2007 after his previous band Down Factor with then drummer Ramon Ochoa, Brooks Rocco on guitar and Waylon Ford on bass broke-up. Interested in putting a different type of band together that was not involved in politics, George formed FROM HELL to tell horror stories in the vein of King Diamond. Every song is in some way linked to all of the other songs and when each album starts, they don’t stop until the very end.

After several line-up changes, during the recording of the first album, George enlisted some amazing players to record with him in FROM HELL. For this debut recording, metal icons Paul Bostaph from Slayer on drums, Steve Smyth from Nevermore on lead guitar and Damien Sisson from Death Angel on bass were recruited to make this record happen. This recording is diabolically epic, and heavy as Hell! Every song is different from the next, covering many genres of metal; from thrash metal and black metal to death metal and doom metal. This album is as dynamic as metal can be!

Also participating in this recording is Phil Bennett of the iconic rock band Starship, playing piano on the track Dead Reckoning and a 22-piece choir, The Pacific Mozart Ensemble on four other tracks. Establishing new ground, this record has the first recorded blast beat by Paul Bostaph, orchestrated with shredding guitar solos from Steve Smyth and heavy melodic & syncopated bass by Damien Sisson.

Produced by George Anderson and Steve “Snake” Green, guitar player from Skinlab, a Century Media recording artist, this recording is a theatrical 70 minutes long with segues in between each song to give additional detail to this horror story. With songs like The Walking Dead, Soul Crusher, Nun With A Gun and Ascent From Hell, this record will take you on a heavy metal horror ride to Hell!

As one can imagine, with so many legendary players in its ranks, it is hard to schedule live performances. There is a CD Release/Listening Party and signing event scheduled for early April 2014 in Oakland, California. FROM HELL will tour the West Coast and select East Coast markets to support the release of Ascent From Hell in the summer and fall of 2014. FROM HELL’s show will include a few different guest performers and members of the band who play in other bands will perform as their touring and recording schedules allow.

Visit the band’s website www.fromhell.net or www.scourgerecords.com for more information and future tour dates.

FROM HELL – Ascent From Hell to be released Physically and Digitally worldwide on April 8th, 2014.

Deathless Legacy - Rise From The Grave - promo album pic - 2013

“Rise From the Grave” is the first album from the Italian Horror Metal band Deathless Legacy. 10 creepy powerful songs adorned with industrial synth and a taste of hammond, to evoke the inner wishes and fears of all the human-beings walking on this world. Their music is plenty of horror, as their presence on stage: all dressed up and made up like evil immortal spirits, they drip horror aspects from every point of view, including music and atmospheres. “Rise from the grave” mixes heavy, speed and Gothic Metal sounds, giving birth to a new experience of Horror Music: you’ll be scared and exalted, believe the monsters!

SNOW WHITE’S POISON BITE – “Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show” – Album Review

Posted in horror, Metal, metal music, Music, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Snow White's Poison Bite - Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show - promo cover

3.5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal Fists - 3 and a half - Metal Odyssey

SNOW WHITE’S POISON BITE – Somewhere along my Metal life, the combination of Horror and Rock ‘N Roll has snagged a part of my Metal soul and refuses to leave. Cool. Case in point: this past Summer, I picked up the new CD from Finland’s Snow White’s Poison Bite, with its lengthy (yet cool) title: Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show (Victory Records). I bought this CD without hearing a single note from it; the cover artwork sold itself!

If there is one dilemma I have with Snow White’s Poison Bite, it’s I wish they would settle on what sound they truly want to be famous for. These guys play (and Jeremy Thirteenth sings) Punk, Alternative, Extreme and Metal very well; only it’s the mixed bag of genres that distracts me; I sincerely want to be floored by this CD, only the change in musical styles has me asking: how does this band want to be labeled? If this Horror Crew wanted to just play straight-up (toasted cheese sandwich and beer) Horror Punk, saving the extremity and slivers of emo vocals for another day, then I’d do a naked jig clear across the beautiful state of Ohio. Yup.

Snow White's Poison Bite - Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show - promo cover

For the Metal money, this is a (gasp) FUN CD to listen to and the song titles should pretty much give that away. I am totally down with what Snow White’s Poison Bite have done with the marketing of their band, from the artwork to their Horror Punk attire and makeup. This is a rowdy CD, which adds an important plus to my liking it. I absolutely dig the creepy spoken words on both the intro (track 1) and ending (track 10) to this CD.

The legendary (former) Misfits frontman, Michael Graves, is featured on Zombie Romance. The (unexpected) 1950’s Doo Wop and Shoo Bop experience this song initially introduces only gives way to an even more delectable dish of creepy Horror Punk, making this song my favorite of the track list. At the end of my Metal day, I do recommend this CD to Horror Punk fans and Alternative (Heavy Rock) fans alike. Metal be thy name.

Track Listing:

1. Gruesomely Introducing: Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show 2. The Gruesome Gory Horror Show 3. There’s A New Creep On The Block 4. Will You Meet Me In The Graveyard? 5. Halloween Means Death 6. Count Dracula Kid 7. Dr. Gruesome 8. Zombie Romance (Feat. Michael Graves) 9. Lurking Inside Of You 10. The Show Must Gruesomely End

Orange Goblin - Greece - Tour Poster - November - 2013

ORANGE GOBLIN – It’s no secret that around Metal Odyssey’s beer soaked and evil headquarters, ORANGE GOBLIN are a core favorite. This morning, as I conducted my daily perusing around the vast digital landscape of Metal, to see what’s new, I came across this horrendous looking goblin (see tour poster above) staring me down in the face!

This ugly and blood thirsty goblin is a gem-perfect abomination for this ORANGE GOBLIN tour poster! I absolutely love this ORANGE GOBLIN tour poster! I NEED one badly! Um, the poster, that is. Metal be thy name.

NEW ALBUM FROM ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH, THE COMING BLOODBATH, WAS RELEASED ON MARCH 26TH, 2013, VIA TURKEY VULTURE RECORDS / DISTRIBUTED BY BUNGALO RECORDS & UMG

Zombie Death Stench - The Coming Bloodbath - promo cover pic

ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH – BAND BIO:

ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH doesn’t fit into any one specific genre of Metal, instead playing what they like to call “Horror Metal.” Mixed within and between their aural assaults are cold analog keyboard sounds that are evocative of Horror and Sci-Fi films of the late 70’s and 80’s. Their music is cold, dark, violent and ugly. There is nothing flashy, nothing pretty and nothing about it is clean. It is Metal in its purest rotting undead form. Nothing is sacred to them…only the undead.

Formed in 2007 and, after many line-up changes, the band has found their sound with the current four core members. With three albums, (Here I Die…Zombified, The Redeadening, The Coming Bloodbath) under their belt, they are weaving their way into the Metal mainstream with much more to come in the future.

ZOMBIE DEATH STENCH are from Central Valley, Bay Area, California.
