Check out the first official trailer for W.A.S.P.‘s upcoming 25th anniversary release “RE-IDOLIZED”:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JXa5uGR05s&feature=youtu.be


In 1992 W.A.S.P. released “The Crimson Idol”. It’s the story of Jonathan Aaron Steele, an abused child looking for love. Discovering music years later, he rises to international superstardom. Later followed by a catastrophic fall.

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the original release, which is still considered to be the best album of W.A.S.P.‘s career, and one of the greatest concept albums of all times! “The Crimson Idol” undoubtedly belongs in every metal head’s record collection. The album about the anti-hero Jonathan Steele was originally intended to be accompanied by a movie, with several hundred hours of film that were shot to create approximately 50 minutes of movie footage.

This film has never been released – Until now!

Napalm Records proudly announces “RE-IDOLZED”, the 25th anniversary of the iconic hit album plus the original “The Crimson Idol” movie on DVD and Blu-ray! For the first time EVER as originally intended, released in one product!

“RE-IDOLIZED” will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, CD, and vinyl later this year!

LONG LIVE W.A.S.P.

Special thanks to Scott Coverdale for the Metal research regarding this post.

New England Death Squad SCALPEL will self-release new album Methods to Delusion on July 25. A promo video for “Labors of Loathing” is available at the following link:

https://youtu.be/pqIFEmor2fg

Crusted severed toes nailed to walls; humans covered head to toe in needles administering horrific psychoactive chemicals; an infant’s head being turned to apple sauce on a kitchen counter’s edge – these are only fragments of the surreal and vicious stories told on SCALPEL’s Methods to Delusion. Wielding chainsaw guitars and sledgehammer percussion, Methods to Delusion brings back a psychedelic element to extreme music, inflicting chaos and sickening truth unto the listener. The album was engineered by Colin Marston (GORGUTS) at Thousand Caves Studios.

BAND BIO:

Death Metal is a visceral art that is dependent upon the extreme dedication of its loyal fans. We have no other purpose but to deliver a version of this art to those same fans like us, whose lives have been claimed by the likes of SUFFOCATION, CARCASS, and DEATH. It is in this vein that we construct our own brutal dirges, devoid of genre restriction and eager to explore the darker realms of music.

SCALPEL is a four-piece band hailing from various cesspools in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Guitarists Manny Egbert and Taylor Brennan assume dual vocal duties layered on top of blistering guitars; Matt Bellows belches deafening low-end proficiency on the bass guitar, and Chip Fay thunders behind the drum set, collectively driving the chaos that is the SCALPEL sound.

CHRIS CORNELL – Rest In Peace

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on May 21, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Hearing the news of Chris Cornells’ passing was a shock to my system. After last year’s dreadful losses of musics’ most significant legends, who could ever predict Chris Cornell would leave us in 2017? Not me. My day job supervisor, Mark, told me the news at around 6:30 in the morning this past Thursday. All I can remember is my saying aloud: “no, no, no, no” and feeling like another ruthless blow to the world of music has emerged once again.

I feel very bad for the circumstance that Chris Cornell died from. No one will ever know what his saddened soul and heart were feeling, leading up to his suicide. I also feel sorrow (if not more) for his family that he’s left behind; I cannot imagine their enormous grief. I always say to myself and others, the life of celebrity and fortune is not a guarantee of harmony and control. I always considered (and forever will) that Chris Cornell was the greatest, if not one of the greatest singers of my generation.

Not to sound selfish, only the thought that both Soundgarden and Audioslave are done makes me very sad. Even any future solo work from Chris Cornell is gone. Still, compared to his wife and children losing both a husband and father, there is no comparison to us fans losing only his bands and future musical creations. I express the deepest of condolences to his wife, children and extended family; may they stay strong as ever and never give up hope. I sincerely hope Chris Cornell has now found the peace and happiness he was looking for. May God rest his soul.

7/01/2017 Maggie Meyers Irish Pub – Huntsville, AL

GOATWHORE will release their anticipated Vengeful Ascension full-length worldwide on June 23rd via Metal Blade Records. The band’s seventh full-length and second recorded reel-to-reel, Vengeful Ascension was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois near Champaign with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome).

The ten-track, forty-one-minute production – mixed by Chris Common (Tribulation, Pelican) and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Faith No More, Halford, Today Is The Day) – marches in, clutches its listeners by the throat and refuses to loosen its grip until the abrupt conclusion of “Those Who Denied God’s Will.” A sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band’s signature brand of audio venom, it’s a record that finds its members at their most accomplished both individually and as a cohesive unit.

Guitarist Sammy Duet‘s dense, sub nuclear riff work and possessed solo blitzes are at their most devastating spiraling flawlessly and instinctively around drummer Zack Simmons‘ and bassist James Harvey‘s hammering rhythms while vocalist Ben Falgoust‘s distinctly commanding roar, his acidic prose more enunciated than ever before, complimenting the apocalyptic proceedings.

Vengeful Ascension will be available on CD, vinyl (in multiple limited color variations), and digital formats. Various Vengeful Ascension preorder options are currently available at metalblade.com/goatwhore where you can also sample the record’s title track.

GOATWHORE Recording Lineup: 

Louis B. Falgoust II – vocals
Sammy Duet – guitars, vocals
Zack Simmons – drums
James Harvey – bass

GOATWHORE Touring Lineup: 

Louis B. Falgoust II – vocals
Sammy Duet – guitars, vocals
