KREATOR – EUROPEAN TOUR 2014 Announced! Arch Enemy, Sodom And Vader To Support!

Kreator - European Tour 2014 - promo flyer

Following the release of last year’s highly acclaimed and critically hailed live DVD/Blu-ray Dying Alive, German Thrash Metal giants KREATOR now announce a tour for November/December 2014, leading the true “Hordes Of Chaos” throughout Europe as headliners and with them a real high-class selection of bands.

Joining KREATOR for the upcoming live shenanigans are Polish label mates VADER, Swedish death metal masters ARCH ENEMY and German Thrash veterans SODOM.

Frontman Mille Petrozza comments:

“A lot of our European fans voiced their discontent over the fact that the band hardly does European club tours – apart from our festival shows. In 2013 we were mainly busy playing for our fans overseas. We want to change this now. In time for the reissues of Endless Pain, Pleasure To Kill and Extreme Aggression, in all kinds of formats – finally on vinyl again too – we`ll end the Phantom Antichris tour cycle in Europe with a massive string of shows. This will be your last chance to see KREATOR live in clubs for quite a while, because we`ll be busy working on a new album in 2015 and only play carefully selected shows. Right now we`re working on a new multimedia stage show and we`ll also have a bunch of surprises in the setlist. Our friends of ARCH ENEMY are part of the trek to present their new album War Eternal, and so will VADER and our old companions SODOM. This tour will be KILLER!!!”

Tankard - R.I.B. - promo cover pic - 2014

German Thrash Metal heroes TANKARD just revealed the album cover for their upcoming new album R.I.B.. The artwork was brought to life by Patrick Strogulski, who is a student of Sebastian Krüger, the former TANKARD cover artist.

Mastermind Gerre states:
“R.I.B. continues the story of Chemical Invasion. The crazy professor is back is takes revenge on mankind, because he failed in 1987! The cover is done again by Patrick Strogulski, an apprentice of Sebastian Krüger and really hits the spot! As always with Tankard, things shouldn’t be taken too seriously!”

The band also released the R.I.B. track listing:

01. War Cry
02. Fooled By Your Guts
03. R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)
04. Riders Of The Doom
05. Hope Can’t Die
06. No One Hit Wonder
07. Breakfast for Champions
08. Enemy Of Order
09. Clockwise To Deadline
10. The Party Ain’t Over ‘Til We Say So

Taking inspiration from the motto “never change a winning team”, the guys did the recording again with producer Michael Mainx (BÖHSE ONKELZ, DER W, D-A-D, DISBELIEF), who also produced the last two albums.

OVERKILL – COVER ARTWORK AND TRACK LISTING OF “WHITE DEVIL ARMORY” UNVEILED!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Overkill - White Devil Armory - promo cover pic - 2014

New Jersey Thrash Metal veterans OVERKILL will release their new album, White Devil Armory, on July 18, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The effort was tracked at Gear Recording and will be mixed by Greg Reely, who also worked on 2012′s The Electric Age.

The track listing of  White Devil Armory will be as follows:

01. Freedom Rings
02. Where There’s Smoke…
03. Pig
04. Amorist
05. Down To The Bone
06. Bitter Pill
07. King Of The Rat Bastards
08. Another Day To Die
09. It’s All Yours
10. In The Name

________________________________

Said OVERKILL in a statement: “We are still working on the new record, but this is gonna be worth the wait, with more old-school, face-melting thrash!”

Speaking to Steppin’ Out magazine, OVERKILL vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth stated about the band’s upcoming album: “The new record has a blend of what we’ve done over the past half-decade. I’m noticing it’s a more punchy heavy metal record with more dimension than the last record had. Where is it going to end up on the food chain? I really don’t know. But my feeling is it’s an eclectic collection of moments from us. “The Electric Age” came across, to me, as kind a of two-dimensional Thrash record. This one is punchy but has a whole different bunch of ways to go and things to hear on it.”

Overkill - Group and Logo - promo pic - #1

OVERKILL released a very special limited tour edition of  “The Electric Age” in Europe on April 19, 2013 via Nuclear Blast. The limited 2CD tour edition included the regular album as well as four additional live tracks on a bonus CD, recorded at The Metro in Sidney, Australia on September 25, 2010.

OMNIVORE – Debut Album Out Now On Unspeakable Axe Records

Omnivore - promo album cover pic - 2014

Italian Death/Thrashers OMNIVORE have unleashed their self-titled debut album through Unspeakable Axe Records. This blood-soaked slab of old-school thrash aggression is now available at: www.unspeakableaxerecords.com.

A promo video for the song “I Hope The War Comes” is now playing below:

Like their name suggests, OMNIVORE are equal-opportunity devourers. Their raging full-length shows that they clearly consumed old Death/Thrash acts from Europe and the U.S. – think Massacra, Merciless, and Sadus – as well as the more-familiar Bay Area bands, represented here by the use of gang vocals, some melodic lead parts, and even a startlingly well-played acoustic passage. Of course, one of their biggest influences is revealed by the hidden bonus track at the end, a cover song that implores you to “Arise!”

Hailing from Varese and spawned in 2011 from the ashes of Nightmare Of Fallen, Omnivore is already a project on hold. The band’s lone album (so far at least) is going to burn down villages and consume the fleeing villagers.

UNTIMELY DEMISE are from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Thrash Metal and Death Metal collide in a fireball of gargantuan glory, on Systematic Eradication; with healthy slices of True and Speed Metal adding to the Metal delicacy! Untimely Demise is, in my Metal opinion, a Metal band that has an enormous cross-over appeal to Metal fans of widespread Metal tastes. I’m certain the majority shall agree, the cover artwork for Systematic Eradication kicks quantum ass. Ed Repka is an artistic Metal genius.

With plenty of melodic guitar solos and groove infested rhythm throughout, Systematic Eradication is a Metal release from 2013 that must be highlighted here on Metal Odyssey. This Untimely Demise album comes across with such a genuine attack of Thrash sound and energy; I cannot resist listening to Systematic Eradication, in its entirety, each time I reach for it! Vocally and musically impressive, as ALL eight songs flow seamlessly together, with each song having ample Metal uniqueness of structure and enjoyability. A fabulous Metal album! Metal be thy name. – Stone

COLDSTEEL – With five songs of blistering, American made Thrash Metal, COLDSTEEL gets ‘er done with their 2013 release: America Idle. The duo guitars of Eddie Campbell and Joe Shavel are a Thrash force, the vocals of Troy Norr is a Thrash force and the rhythm section of Doug Odell (bass) and Hal Aponte are the Thrashing icing on the Metal freaking cake.

These seasoned warriors of Thrash Metal, from New York, New York, have paid their dues and exemplify all things kick-ass about underground Thrash Metal in America. With an old school nod to the greats of the genre, COLDSTEEL have always pulled it off in a genuine, Thrashing style as an original. For me NOT to get my ass up and Thrash about, while I’m cranking up America Idle, (at home, not in the car), is a rarity. COLDSTEEL will ignite your veins, brain and nervous system to MOSH the F*CK OUT! Metal be thy name. – Stone

HATRIOT “Dawn Of The New Centurion” – Is A Dawn Of Grand Thrash Metal!

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

HATRIOT – Releasing on February 21st, 2014, via Massacre Records, is the sophomore album from HATRIOT: Dawn Of The New Centurion. Bay Area Thrash legend, Steve “Zetro” Souza, has once again delivered an insanely solid and eye-popping vocal performance! All fans of HATRIOT and Thrash Metal should be psyched out of their skin, once they listen to these 9 songs of true, old school Thrash Metal. Steve has to be extremely damn proud of this follow-up to their kick-ass 2013 debut album: Heroes Of Origin.

The guitar duo, (led by) Kosta V with Miguel Esparza are freaking incredible to lose your brain cells to! Whoa! Both of these axe slingers play in true Bay Area Thrash Metal style, with speed, heaviness, melodic character and plenty of furious interludes. Solid as hell is HATRIOT and they bestow the talent you’d come to expect from Thrash icons such as Anthrax, Testament, Megadeth, Death Angel and Forbidden.

There’s NO filler on this album, just plenty of Thrash greatness. The gang vocals are prevalent throughout, with a Thrash spirited rhythm section of yesteryear. Yes, Steve “Zetro” Souza has proven himself as an ultimate Thrash Metal mentor and his 2 sons in HATRIOT, Cody (bass) and Nick (drums), must surely be grateful! If I must pick my favorite song from this gem, it’s the title track. Dawn Of The New Centurion is a complete Thrash Metal package, with every song a killer! This is an electrifying Thrash Metal album; one that bridges the glory years of the 80′s to our modern-day of Thrash Metal. Hell yes and… Metal be thy name. – Stone

LOST SOCIETY – NEW ALBUM “TERROR HUNGRY” DETAILS REVEALED!

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Lost Society - Terror Hungry - promo cover pic - 2014

LOST SOCIETY, one of the most promising up-and-coming Finnish bands of our time, has released the details to their upcoming album Terror Hungry. “LOST SOCIETY is back, and we’re angrier than ever,” commented guitarist/vocalist Samy Elbanna. “The new album Terror Hungry is a full on thrash album from start to finish, with a darker and even more aggressive feel to it! It has the signature elements that make up LOST SOCIETY and we’ve put in even more groove riffage, more mind blistering guitar shredding, and some of the fastest stuff we’ve ever done on it! Look out, this one’s gonna be faster, louder and we’re more pissed off than ever!”

Terror Hungry was produced by Nino Laurenne (AMORPHIS, ENSIFERUM, LORDI) at the renowned Sonic Pump studios (FINNTROLL, SONATA ARCTICA, OMNIUM GATHERUM). The artwork was created by Jan Meininghaus (BOLT THROWER, SICK OF IT ALL, UDO). Expect to see the release of Terror Hungry in both digital and physical formats on April 1st (North America) and April 4th (Europe) via Nuclear Blast Records.

Artist Jan Meininghaus states about the album cover:

“I was asked to do LOST SOCIETY’s new album cover and first of all, I had to face the fact that I had to follow their debut album’s art that was created by the legendary Ed Repka; one of the true heroes of my own thrash metal days. So I decided to go a different way and create the band’s cover idea in a much darker and less cartoony mood than the debut. LOST SOCIETY’s musical style and their approach to metal is very 80’s bay area to me, so I thought it might be fun to paint something that might have been on one of those record covers these days. I listened to LOST SOCIETY and my old EXODUS, TESTAMENT and FORBIDDEN vinyls and it was a blast to come up with Terror Hungry artwork!”

Lost Society - promo band pic - 2014 - #44987

The track list of Terror Hungry reads as follows:

01. Spurgatory
02. Game Over
03. Attaxic
04. Lethal Pleasure
05. Terror Hungry
06. Snowroad Blowout
07. Tyrant Takeover
08. Overdosed Brain
09. Thrashed Reality
10. F.F.E.
11. Brewtal Awakening
12. Mosh It Up
13. Wasted After Midnight

Bonus: 
14. You Can’t Stop Rock ‘N’ Roll

LOST SOCIETY’s debut Fast Loud Death displayed a true old-school Thrash vibe in 2013 and managed to amaze press and scene veterans such as KREATOR, TANKARD, DESTRUCTION or TESTAMENT alike. Just check out these video clips from that very record, to see what all the hype is about:

The bavarian Thrash Metal masterminds from RUNNING DEATH are currently putting all their love, sweat and tears into writing their upcoming debut album.

The record is to be released in late 2014 and RUNNING DEATH will for sure gain a lot of prompt attention – from more than just fans of their genre.

What we’ve seen so far makes us expect nothing less than a Thrash Metal sensation!!!

The band was founded in 2004 and has from the beginning, always been looking for quality, diversity and a completely unique style.

Exploring their own ground is what keeps these musicians and founder, guitarist and singer Simon Bihlmayer awake at night.

You’re way more likely to hear stomping Heavy Metal riffs paired with unorthodox arranged razor-sharp Thrash riffs… than all the things you’ve already heard so often and really have grown weary of!

Celebrating wide diversity and integrating an extraordinarily ambitioned reinterpretation of 80s flair, the four Metal maniacs invite you to a journey through their wonderfully catchy and powerful songs.

All those factors combined create such a unique and ever exciting soundscape, that many kinds of Metal and even Rock heads will find their itch for genuinely good music scratched!

Apostasy Records welcomes new blood to the family…

Barcelona-based ultra thrashers CRISIX have signed with Apostasy Records, becoming the first thrash metal act to join the label’s roster. With their 2011 album, The Menace the quintet released an outstanding debut full of hard-driving riffs and feisty vocals; a cocktail that feeds every pit. The band’s latest, Rise…Then Rest, was mixed and mastered by none other than Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, et. al.). Previously available in Spain only, Apostasy Records will release this masterpiece across the UK, Europe and North America. More details to come.

Cincinnati, Ohio - The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is excited to announce that after years of loyal support and attendance of our summer festival, the young Cincinnati, Ohio Thrash Metal band SPLIT THE ABYSS will be one of the featured bands during the Thursday, June 26th Pre-Fest Showcase of this year’s Warriors Of Metal Fest VII at O’Sheckys LIVE in Columbus, Ohio.  The entry fee for the Pre-Fest Showcase is only $10 at the door and music starts at 6:00 pm.

Check out To Die at the Wall off the band’s second full-length, With Savage Intent, which was released in November of last year, below:

Band drummer John Wood “Woody” Corsini Jr. states: “We are honored to be a part of 2014′s Warriors of Metal Fest VII. We’ve been in attendance at previous festivals and we’ve always had a great time at this event. It’s the best metal festival Ohio has to offer and one of the recent highlights for us included seeing two legendary bands in Helstar and Manilla Road at the 2012 edition of this show because for both of them it was the first time they had played in Ohio since the early to mid 1980s! And now to go from being patrons to performers, shows what a young band can accomplish if it is supportive of its local and regional shows. We’ll now be sharing the stage with so many bands from around the country and this will finally put us on a national scale. Be forewarned, we intend to be the heaviest band at Warriors of Metal Fest 2014.”

Toxic Waltz - Decades Of Pain - promo cover pic - 2014

Young Bavarian Thrash Metal idealists TOXIC WALTZ unleash their debut full-length Decades Of Pain on January, 23rd!

The attractive Front cover art of this album is created by Peter Tikos, who worked also with ALPHA TIGER and BATTLECREEK. (web: http://tikosblog.blogspot.de)

In the beginning of 2009, TOXIC WALTZ were founded by lead guitarist Jimi and ex-drummer Tim.

Bass guitar player Rahman, vocalist Angelo and rhythm guitarist Alex joined the band soon to form a Thrash Metal ensemble that is clearly affected by the US Bay Area style (e.g. EXODUS, HEATHEN, FORBIDDEN, DARK ANGEL), neither leaving out influences from other genres nor lacking recognition value.

TOXIC WALTZ are delivering aggressive, but artistically demanding Thrash Metal, characterized by diversified songwriting.

The band’s unique style and live experience, originated with many smaller gigs, earned them bigger venues soon.

TOXIC WALTZ shared the stage with well-known bands like SIX FEET UNDER, ALPHA TIGER and DEBAUCHERY.

Now the band is fully ambitioned to reach the maximum success!!

TOXIC WALTZ – LINE-UP:

Angelo: Vocals

Jimi: Lead Guitar

Alex: Rhythm Guitar

Rahman: Bass

Flo: Drums
