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

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.

MAZE OF TERROR “SKULLCRUSHER” EP Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Maze Of Terror - Skullcrusher - promo cover pic - 2014

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

MAZE OF TERROR – Peruvian Thrash Metallers, Maze Of Terror, are a band  that you MUST know about and bang thy head to. It’s that simple and end of Metal story. Seriously. These dudes have single-handedly put Peru on the Thrash Metal map, with their retro-style of in-your-face, raw and severely contagious Thrash.

SKULLCRUSHER is the name of this band’s EP and ALL 5 songs are skull crushing (no pun intended). This is Thrash that old-schoolers yearn for and Maze Of Terror are well-studied in The Roots Of Thrash Metal 101. I had no idea days ago that Maze Of Terror existed and now I’m elated to listen to their brain assaulting Thrash at will! ALL kick-ass Metal adjectives come into play here, with this EP from Maze Of Terror: scorching, fierce, blistering, fast, eye-popping, true, et cetera. If the iconic Slayer (or any Thrash legends) are to play Peru, Maze Of Terror should always be their support band. Hell yes.

This Thrash power-trio has a quantum amount of Metal talent; LEVIATHAN on bass & vocals, CRIMINAL MIND on guitars and HAMMER on drums are a true thrill to listen to and I couldn’t be more Metal honest than that. Metal be thy name. – Stone

SKULLCRUSHER EP – Track Listing: Hatred and Repression, Damned to Eternal Pyre, Lord of Destruction, Rivals, Run with Death

Listen To And Support MAZE OF TERROR!

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

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on April 16, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

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 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.
