REVOCATION “Teratogenesis” – A Scion A/V Presents EP From 2012 You MUST Know About!

Revocation - Teratogenesis - EP - cover promo!

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

REVOCATION – I remember posting the press release, regarding this tidy 5 song EP, Teratogenesis, from Boston’s REVOCATION. Back on September 25th, 2012, this Metal gem was released for free, via Scion A/V Presents. Scion A/V routinely offers free downloads of Metal EP’s; therefore I declare Scion A/V kicks 100% Metal ass. This great company supports Metal. ‘Nuff said about that.

Of the 5 songs on this EP, my 2 favorite songs on Teratogenesis are Maniacally Unleashed and Bound By Desire. Plus, there are a TON of Metal grooves to be heard and enjoyed from the title track. Whoa! Please note that ALL 5 songs on this EP are some of the best Metal work that REVOCATION has ever done! I’m not shitting about that. If you’re not familiar with REVOCATION, their brand of Metal is Thrash, in the Death Thrash vein and they play it extremely well; just like Arizona’s rabid Hemoptysis.

The overall Metal wall-of-sound is so damn blistering fine from this EP! This is guitar driven Death Thrash that is, for me, eye-popping! If you’re looking for Metal intensity, that’ll leave you feeling as though you’ve smoked and inhaled potent Metal bliss, then Teratogenesis from REVOCATION is it. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Bloodbound - In The Name Of Metal - promo cover pic - 2012

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

BLOODBOUND are a Power Metal band from Bollnäs, Sweden and I’ll guarantee their 2012 album, In The Name Of Metal, will kick your Metal lovin’ ass into the week after next. This insane fabulous album was released via AFM Records. Yup, the album cover artwork tells you immediately, that this Bloodbound album is whiz-bang.

When it comes to guitar driven Power Metal, Bloodbound are an unstoppable force. Unreal. Are Metal anthems what you crave? Bloodbound will have you lighting a torch and marching down main street to city hall at midnight. In The Name Of Metal and Metalheads Unite are two Metal anthems that speaks for our Metal community. Metal victory doesn’t await us, my fellow Metal brethren, the Metal victory is here and heard throughout this Bloodbound album! All the posers that aren’t still getting all this may now leave. Get out.

Bloodbound - band logo - red - white - #112

Lead vocalist Patrik Johansson is a pure talent, with a splendid touch of influence from Metal legends as Kai Hansen, Andi Deris and Bruce Dickinson. There’s even an obvious vocal influence of the legendary Udo Dirkschneider that I hear on Monstermind. I honestly put Patrik Johansson on a high Metal pedestal; for his range and sporadic falsetto are plenty impressive, to me. Bloodbound easily commands me to really feel the outpouring of jubilant Metal that they play so incredibly well, on In The Name Of Metal.

In The Name Of Metal never lets up on its powerful Metal momentum, from beginning to end it’s a Metal thrill! My favorite song is Black Devil, however, this entire album is relentless with its mission of in-your-face Power Metal. Bloodbound are just a complete Metal band and they’ve easily demonstrated to me their out-and-out power! Support Bloodbound, buy this album and thank me in the Metal future. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, stoner metal with tags , , , , , on July 25, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Orange Goblin - 2013 North American Tour - promo flyer

Britain’s premier Stoner Metal band ORANGE GOBLIN will return to perform at venues throughout North America this Autumn. Following the band’s huge success earlier this year as main support for Clutch on their Earth Rocker North American tour, the Brits return for a full headlining run. Kicking off in New Orleans on September 27, the band will visit 38 cities around the United States and Canada before concluding in Nashville on November 9. Support on the tour will come from Holy Grail and Lazer/Wulf.

The trek finds ORANGE GOBLIN continuing a year-long commitment to performances in support of their latest studio album, A Eulogy For the Damned (2012), and first live CD/DVD released earlier this year. This rigorous schedule has seen them perform in over 25 countries across the globe, ensuring that the band is firing on all cylinders and maintaining their reputation as one of the fiercest and most exciting live acts on the planet! In fact, Clutch’s own Neil Fallon was recently seen on That Metal Show wearing an ORANGE GOBLIN shirt and proclaiming them to be one of his favorite bands!

Orange Goblin - A Eulogy For The Fans - promo cover pic

Released March 12, A Eulogy For The Fans/Orange Goblin Live 2012 includes ORANGE GOBLIN’s complete performances from England ’s Bloodstock Open Air and France’s Hellfest. The package’s DVD includes the official Tom Cronin directed videos for “Red Tide Rising” and “Acid Trial,” the latter courtesy of Scion A/V. It further includes the Matt Chance directed “Red Tide Rising” documentary and Gaetan Chataigner directed “Highway to Hellfest” documentary. Art and design was provided by Jimbob Isaac under the direction of vocalist Ben Ward.

The live album follows the release of A Eulogy For The Damned, now ORANGE GOBLIN’s highest selling album in North America. Produced by Jamie Dodd and mastered by two-time Grammy-nominated engineer Andy Jackson (Pink Floyd), the album entered the UK charts at position 96 and for the US landed on Billboard Magazine’s Heat Seekers chart at position 38.

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY Take Break From New Album; To Perform Live Dates In The US & South America

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , on July 19, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Corrosion Of Conformity - Group Promo Pic 2012 #1

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY is vocalist/bassist Mike Dean, guitarist Woody Weatherman, and drummer Reed Mullin.

_________________________________

Following their recent performance at the Fifth Annual Scion Fest in Memphis, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY has announced live assaults for August. In addition to their already planned participation at Gwar’s annual BBQ, the trio will perform a headlining show in Wilmington, Delaware before heading to South America for a string of dates. The August shows mark a break from continued work in the recording studio on the band’s new album, expected for release in early 2014.

“We need a little escape from the studio,” comments vocalist/bassist Mike Dean. “We thought it would be good to see the light of the day a little bit. We are excited to play Brazil, Peru, Columbia, and Argentina for the first time ever. Of course returning to Mexico City and playing Gwar’s BBQ will be highlights for our summer as well. The new material is sounding really good but it’s time to get the perspective provided only by playing in front of a live audience. And we are talking about some very live audiences in this case.”

Updates regarding progress of the band’s forthcoming album came during the band’s late April West Coast tour with Danzig. Dean said, “We have a lot of lyric writing to refine but a lot of solid musical arrangements are in place. We plan to begin basic tracking for half the songs as soon as we return to North Carolina.” The initial work on the still untitled album found the band not long out of the recording studio having recently completed their Scion/AV EP Megalodon. The special EP was included free to all customers to the band’s official webstore and is still available as a free download by clicking HERE.

Dean notes, “The EP was written, recorded, and released in two months time.  It really challenged us in a good way.” In the meantime, fans can check out live footage of the band’s first-ever appearance in Chile at this year’s Metal Fest this past April at THIS LOCATION.

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY released their self-titled album via Candlelight Records to high praise late February 2012. It was the first new material by the North Carolina trio since 2005. “Corrosion Of Conformity is what you want out of a comeback record: not just a reclaimation of lost vigor but a meaningful update on a vintage sound,” said Pitchfork. “The celebrated Animosity line-up displays a command of style far beyond anything their 1985 selves could have imagined,” added Decibel. The album debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 chart at position 157 and impacted CMJ’s Loud Rock chart at position 8 on its debut week before working its way up to the top spot.  It remained on the magazine’s popular radio chart Top 10 for eight weeks.

Corrosion Of Conformity - Promo Album Pic #2!

Formed in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1982, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY quickly transformed heavy music. The band has influenced countless new bands and today remains humble about their accomplishments. To date, the band has sold over 1.1 million albums in the United States and continues to find new fans via non-stop touring.

Martyrd - Tour Dates - Promo Flyer - 2013

“If you like a steady diet of crunchy riffs, and pounding drums punching out hook laden metal delivered with technical prowess, then Martyrd’s new effort ‘The Mortal Coil’ will light you up.” – Fingers, WBAB Radio DJ, Fingers Metal Shop

“With the amount of new and young blood Thrash Metal bands being signed to major labels (Mantic Ritual, Black Tide, Warbringer), can success be far behind for the New York based Martyrd? Let’s hope not.” -Ken Pierce, Piercing Metal

“Martyrd has created a heavy metal album that wears its influences proudly (Exodus, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Megadeth).” -BLABBERMOUTH.NET

“…you need to check out Martyrd. If you love that old school metal sound, you will love these guys!” - The Aquarian

Martyrd - Group Promo Pic - 2013 - #1

2012 saw Martyrd continue their pattern of growth and dominance in the metal markets. Highlights included the summer release of their sophomore album, The Mortal Coil; reaching 14th nationally on the CMJ Loud Rock Charts; their successful Fall of the Faithful fall-winter tour; and strong performance of the single “Pain of Reason” in a wildfire 8-week national radio campaign.

Martyrd will continue to tour in support of The Mortal Coil through quarters 2 and 3 of 2013, before heading into the studio to record their third album in the fourth quarter. Martyrd achieved rapid growth of their fanbase and market share in 2012, and will continue to grow in 2013 with a full schedule of tour dates, festival appearances, showcases, and nonstop events.

Sirroco - Group Promo Pic - 2012 - #1

SIROCCO – Band Bio:

Formed in Co. Waterford in 2003 by Jim Tobin, SIROCCO are a blend of thrashy rythms, beautiful lead guitar melodies, intricate drumming and pounding bass lines, interleaved with plenty of dual guitar harmonies, and old school heavy metal solos, combined to create a sound which they like to call “Celtic Thrash”. Originally an instrumental band, bass player Ciaran O’ Cearuill stepped up to the mic in early 2007 to finalize the line-up, and is audible on their release “The March Through Crimson Frost”, which was officially released in the U.K. and Ireland; released on April 7th, 2008, through Code7 Music.

SIROCCO have played over 100 shows since their inception, including support spots for Exodus, Megadeth, Wasp, Suidakra, Firebird, Crowning Glory, Waylander and Wolfchant, as well as playing at the Cork Winterfest 2007 festival alongside Primordial, The DOD 2008 Festival alongside Watain and the Full Metal Rack 2008 Festival alongside Pagan Altar. The 4-piece have also travelled to the U.K., where they played a headlining show with U.K. metallers Savage Messiah and Heathen Foray in November 2007, and again in June 2008 to headline the inaugural Summer Solstice Pagan Festival.

Their new and third album, Lambay, a concept album about the Viking invasion of Ireland, saw the light of day back in August / September of 2012. 2012 also saw the bands first shows in Belarus, Lithuania, Spain and Malta.

MAELSTROM – Ignites The CMJ Loud Rock Charts With “It Was Predestined”; Follow Up Album In The Works

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on February 7, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Maelstrom - It Was Predestined - EP promo cover!

Long Island-based Heavy Metal powerhouse MAELSTROM has issued an update regarding the enormous reception received by the Halloween 2012 digital reissue of their critically acclaimed  EP, It Was Predestined. Widely-praised by critics across the globe in 2009, when the EP was originally self-released, and again last year when Itchy Metal Entertainment (IME) offered the release to Metal fans worldwide, It Was Predestined exploded onto the CMJ Loud Rock charts this month. MAELSTROM vocalist Gary Vosganian had this to say about the accomplishment:

“It is with great pride that I can say – MaelstroM has hit the US radio charts with our EP It Was Predestined – debuting at #20 on the Nationwide CMJ Loud Rock charts and as the 4th most added album in the country. Thank you to all that have helped and have been fans since the start and congrats to my partner in this effort the true guitar virtuoso Mr. Joey Lodes. Our label partners Itchy Metal Entertainment our PR group ClawHammer PR and of course our radio promoter Munsey Ricci and Skateboard Marketing Ltd. without whom this would have never happened, and of course all the fantastic Djs that are supporting us with their spins – it is sincerely appreciated. There is much work to be done as guitar tracking for the balance of the album has begun this week. But I will take a little time to really absorb the news about CMJ and celebrate this victory! Thanks again to all the fans who have stuck by MaelstroM, your unwavering support has been amazing. Keep it Heavy!”

As Vosganian stated, the band is currently at work on new material for the follow-up to It Was Predestined. Details on the next release will be announced as they come. Stay tuned!

It Was Predestined is available at http://www.itchymetal.com. Famed music journalist Martin Popoff called the release “A symphony of progressiveness the likes of which has pretty much never been articulated, invented, or heard, before now,” and world-renowned publications such as Terrorizer, Metal Hammer and MetalSucks.net all sang MAELSTROM’s praises upon the EP’s release.
