STEEL PROPHET – “Omniscient” Coming July 8th On Cruz Del Sur Music; New Video Posted

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

Steel Prophet - Omniscient - promo cover pic

Cruz del Sur Music is proud to announce the July 8 release of Omniscient, the first new studio album in 10 years from originators of the U.S. Progressive Power Metal Movement: STEEL PROPHET. The band returns with their classic sound led by Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor (guitarist and founding member) and by veteran metal singer Rick Mythiasin. The recording lineup is completed by Vince Dennis (bass), Chris Schleyer (guitar), and Jimmy Schultz (drums); after the recording original drummer John Tarascio, and guitarist John Paget returned to the band together.

Omniscient is composed of 12 songs based on an original story written by Kachinsky. The idea of telling a story throughout a whole album is similar to STEEL PROPHET’s 1999 classic Dark Hallucinations, which featured the “Fahrenheit 451″ story by Ray Bradbury. Famous German Artist Timo Würz was hired to create the amazing cover artwork, and 12 original booklet illustrations to go with the lyrics and story itself.

The album also contains a 13th song, a cover of QUEEN’s Bohemian Rhapsody, which was successfully presented by the band at the 2013 edition of the Keep It True Festival in Germany; a video clip of the event will see the light shortly before the release of Omniscient. The album will be released in limited edition 36-page digibook, regular compact disc, limited gate-fold double LP and digital download.

A new video for album cut 666 is Everywhere (The Heavy Metal Blues) has just been released and can be viewed below:

Although STEEL PROPHET is not well-known for always being humorous, the whimsy of the lyrics is reflected in the video clip shot by AGENT STEEL/REDEMPTION guitarist Bernie Versailles. About the song Kachinsky says “Steel Prophet knows metal fans have a fascination with the numbers “666”. And when you’re in a metal band trying to make a living, sometimes it seems like 666 is Everywhere!”

GOD’S ARMY A.D. – Self-Titled Debut Album Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 4, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

God's Army - promo cover pic - 2014

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

GOD’S ARMY A.D. – On May 23rd, the self-titled debut album from God’s Army A.D. was released via Germany’s (great) Massacre Records. With no  religious ties to their music, God’s Army A.D. are a seasoned group of musicians that have let the world know they can play an incredible blend of Melodic, Power and Traditional Metal. That’s what my ears and Metal senses have told me, anyways. Whoa.

If you’re hankering for screaming duo guitars, articulate and soaring vocals, goose-bump inducing drumming with adrenaline fueled bass thumping, this debut from God’s Army A.D. is for you! God’s Army A.D. plays a sound that is bullseye perfect for the BIG venues, with their wide-open feel and vibes on this album. As an unexpected touch, which I really dig, God’s Army A.D. adds a whoa-o chorus, on Waiting For The Miracle. Very cool.

John A.B.C. Smith (Scanner, Gallow’s Pole, Hallowed, At Vance) on vocals is in the same class with Mark Boals, Doogie White, Göran Edman and Blaze Bayley; just a terrific singer he is. Drummer Mark Cross (Kingdom Come, Helloween, Firewind) has an envious resume as well and trust my Metal word: Mark Cross brings it on this album!

Watch and listen to the God’s Must Be Crazy music video, below! Whoa!

There is a (delicious) old school quality of Metal swirling about this album, with Coming Back To Life and Running Around In Circles igniting my Metal memories to easier Metal days. Yes, the Metal relevance is saturated within this album too, with more hooks, riffs and fired-up fret work to make any Heavy Metal loyalist dizzy with Metal glee!

Is this an album that should be  written on your Metal must list for 2014? Hell yes it is! With NO artificial sweeteners, NO ballads or fillers, God’s Army A.D. has made this middle-aged Metal knucklehead into an instant fan. This album simply makes me feel damn good. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track Listing: The World That Never Was, City Lights, Gods Must Be Crazy, Waiting For The Miracle, Hear You Scream, Coming Back To Life, Running Around In Circles, God’s Army

NOBLE BEAST ANNOUNCE NEW DRUMMER

Nobel Beast - Andrew Rasmussen - drummer - 2014 - publicity pic

Minnesota Power Metal master’s Noble Beast are pleased to announce the addition of Andrew Rasmussen as new drummer for the band.

While he is primarily known for his work in Black Metal band Astral Blood, Andrew is excited to be working with the band. He had the following to say about his new role:

“I’m very excited to be joining Noble Beast as their full-time drummer.I have spent many years of my life always playing in more Black Metal type bands so needless to say I was pretty skeptical at first when Rob had originally told me they were searching for a full-time drummer. But then after listening to the four tracks Rob sent me I was blown away! This is new and exciting for me, and I’ve had a fucking blast playing the music.”

The band had the following to say about Andrew and his ascension to the Noble Beast drum throne:

“A lot of things drew us to Andrew—his chops, his easygoing personality, our shared love of Disillusion—but more than anything else, it was his enthusiasm for Noble Beast that made him The Guy. Andrew is just as committed as we are to building Noble Beast’s future. Together, we’re going to make Noble Beast the best band it can be.”

HELLOWEEN – ANNOUNCES THEIR RETURN TO NUCLEAR BLAST

Helloween - promo band pic - 2014 - #610091

Founded in 1984 and hailed as one of the pioneering Power Metal bands from Germany, the Hamburg-based quintet HELLOWEEN is celebrating their 30th Anniversary in 2014 and have announced their return to Nuclear Blast’s worldwide artist family.

“As a label, Nuclear Blast is ‘Heavy Metal to the bone,’” shares HELLOWEEN vocalist Andi Deris, “and we are really looking forward to working together with a lot of familiar faces.”

Nuclear Blast’s founder & label owner Markus Staiger is overwhelmed at bringing the band back into the fold. “We are more than proud that HELLOWEEN is part of the Nuclear Blast family again,” he states. “All those years we had a friendship-like connection and our ways crossed on a regular basis at concerts and festivals. HELLOWEEN to us is a matter of the heart. There’s not only the two records we released [The Dark Ride in 2000 and Rabbit Don’t Come Easy in 2003], but they’re an act that has influenced me and many of our employees. Together there are big plans and we are looking forward to having another productive and successful cooperation.”

Helloween - Classic Band Logo - #119 - 2013

Following HELLOWEEN’s appearances on the European summer festival circuit, the band will enter Mi Sueño Studio on the island of Tenerife off the coast of Morocco with producer Charlie Bauerfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, HAMMERFALL, PRIMAL FEAR) to record a new studio album for an early 2015 release.

Last month, Nuclear Blast released special edition re-issues of The Dark Ride and Rabbit Don’t Come Easy, featuring 3 bonus tracks on each album, which can be ordered from the Nuclear Blast USA Webshop.

Straight Out Of Hell, HELLOWEEN’s latest studio album released in early 2013, debuted on the German album chart at #4 – the band’s highest chart entry in their home country to date – and held this position for five weeks. The album had five other “Top Ten” album entries in Europe and also cracked the American Billboard Top 100 chart with an entry at #97.

GAMMA RAY – Power Metal Icons Unleash New Lyric Video Via Revolver; “Empire Of The Undead” To Drop This Spring

Gamma Ray - Empire Of The Undead - promo cover pic - 2014

Today, the perpetrators at Revolver are pleased to premiere the lyric video for “Hellbent,” from German Power Metal icons, GAMMA RAY. The new tune comes by way of the band’s long-anticipated new full-length, Empire Of The Undead, set for release this Spring.

A record that almost wasn’t, Empire Of The Undead was composed throughout 2013 with Eike Freese (Dark Age) at the mixing desk alongside bassist/co-writer, Dirk Schlächter, and was nearing completion before Hammer Studios, their home, rehearsal space, and meeting point for many metal bands throughout Germany, had burned down leaving much of its contents in ruins. Fortunately, the Empire Of The Undead masters managed to make it through unscathed. “If this could not stop us, nothing ever will,” joked light-hearted GAMMA RAY vocalist Kai Hansen, adding that, “We got rid of a lot of shit that we gathered there. Unfortunately, a lot of good equipment as well. Anyhow, we look towards the future, we saved the production and we can continue now in this new place.”

Sample triumphant new teaser track, “Hellbent,” now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.

Empire Of The Undead will be released in North America on CD, LP and digitally via Armoury Records in conjunction with earMusic on April 15, 2014.
