Comatose Music Is Very Pleased To Announce The Signing Of MORTAL DECAY!


For over twenty years this South Jersey powerhouse has astonished the Death Metal community with their very unique style of technical and innovative composition that sets them apart from all others. Brace yourself for a punishing release full of substance and without limits, exploring beyond the standards to create an opus of mass destruction.

Here is what Mortal Decay says about the new album: “In believing that this is our most solid material to date and that we are individually at our best, it can be summed as a definitive collection of songs. Ranging through every era of the band, and including newer experiments, our collective energy and creativity was reborn and still exploding at a level beyond what we could have imagined. True MORTAL DECAY fans will get a taste of all levels of our musical direction at its finest.”

Recording is scheduled to begin in April and the release date will be set this Summer. In addition to the new release, Comatose Music will also re-issue the highly sought after A Gathering of Human Artifacts CD and it will be available this Spring!

Guitarist Joe Gordon adds: “We are extremely excited to be working with Steve and Comatose Music on these releases. The label is definitely on the upswing, and we’re very happy to be a part of this amazing roster of bands!”

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

Candlelight Records has confirmed March 12th as the North American release date for A Eulogy For the Fans-Orange Goblin Live 2012. The CD/DVD is the first proper live recording from ORANGE GOBLIN and will be released in tandem with the band’s first full stateside tour in over eight years. The special recording kicks off a planned year of non-stop touring and continues the success found in 2012 in which the band appeared/topped countless “Best Of” magazine and fan generated polls.

A Eulogy For The Fans-Orange Goblin Live 2012 includes ORANGE GOBLIN’s complete performances professionally recorded at Bloodstock Open Air Festival (England-August 11, 2012) and Hellfest (France-June 15, 2012). The DVD further includes the official Tom Cronin directed videos for “Red Tide Rising” and “Acid Trial,” the latter courtesy of Scion A/V, plus the Matt Chance directed “Red Tide Rising Documentary” and Gaetan Chataigner directed “Highway To Hellfest Documentary.” Art and design was once again provided by Jimbob Isaac under the direction of vocalist Ben Ward.

Discussing the album, Ward says, “for years people have been asking us to release a live album. It’s a warts and all recording to highlight exactly what you get at an ORANGE GOBLIN show. It’s not over-produced; you can hear the bum-notes and the forgotten lyrics as well as the energy and power emanating from the stage. And the crowd! I think that’s what a good live album is all about. It’s just the sound of us getting up on stage, plugging in and going hell for leather. Crack open a beer, turn it up loud and bang your head.”

England’s Classic Rock Magazine says, “put simply, ORANGE GOBLIN are the best metal band in Britain.” A permanent fixture on the metal landscape since their formation in 1995, ORANGE GOBLIN recordings have been embraced by fans the world over. Their live performances have been hailed as one of the best. Kerrang! says, “ORANGE GOBLIN shows are very predictable… you know they are going to be brilliant before they even hit the stage.” ORANGE GOBLIN signed to Candlelight Records late 2008 and immediately began writing new material for the first time in over five years.

Teaming with producer Jamie Dodd and two-time Grammy-nominated engineer Andy Jackson (Pink Floyd), the band completed recording of A Eulogy For The Damned late September 2011. The record was released February 14, 2012 entering the UK Top 200 at 96 and landed on Billboard’s Heat Seekers chart at 38. The album hit the top of CMJ’s Loud Rock album chart on March 7 and ended the year at position 6 on the Top 50 Year-End Album chart. Decibel Magazine called the album,” maximum riffage, turbo-doom biker rock… awesome!.” Hellbound proclaimed, “this dish is one spicy meatball.” Popdose confirmed, “possibly the best record from start to finish that they have released yet.”

A Eulogy For the Fans-Orange Goblin Live 2012 features songs that span the band’s extensive repertoire including fan favorites “Stand For Something,” “Scorpionica,” “Quincy The Pigboy,” “Blue Snow,” “Time Travelling Blues,” and the album’s single “The Filthy & The Few” which is set to impact loud rock radio on February 26.

EVILYN STRANGE – UK Trio Releases Second Single “Love Finds You” And Is Also: Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on February 14, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

EvilynStrange_LoveFindsYou_Promo Cover

EVILYN STRANGE are proud to announce the release of their second single, ‘Love Finds You’ through Thirteen772 Music. The digital only single has been released to tie in with Valentine’s Day and is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Mourning Phoebe’.

Not content with injecting a mighty dose of Mikael Johannesson ‘Sumo Rock’ Slide Guitar, the track opens with… an Al Strange drum solo! Yes, you don’t get many of those to the pound these days. Vocally there are more fist raising ‘Yeah, yeah, yeeeahs’ than you’d think possible. What more could any self-respecting rocker want?  TURN IT UP!


‘Love Finds You’ is currently available at:


Stone Says: Love Finds You is all wrapped up into one delectable blend of Melodic and Heavy Rock; not falling short (and excelling) on both the drum and guitar solos, while giving way to a welcomed Classic Rock vibe that’s also enriched with a feel for both an arena and club setting. Just a superbly written, played and sung Heavy Rock song. Love Finds You only accentuates all the more reason why Evilyn Strange will be a BIG name in our small Heavy Rockin’ world very soon. Buy this new single from Evilyn Strange. Crank it up and let it Rock your brain. Metal be thy name.

In Metal summary, this new single, Love Finds You, from Evilyn Strange is: Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day!

Feb. 13, 2013, San Francisco – King Loses Crown, a new Bay Area trio 3Hive described as “darker than Devo, faster than Depeche Mode, denser than Killing Joke,” release You Can’t Escape, a six-song EP, on Feb. 19.

The title track is streaming now via AMP:  A video for “My Revenge” was created by movie and visual effects director Jim Mitchell (Jurassic Park III and the Harry Potter series) and can be viewed here: The video, featuring realistic robots mingling uncomfortably with humans in modern day street settings, has already been featured on Huffington Post and SF Weekly’s website as well as being named one of io9’s “Best Science Fiction” music videos alongside The Flaming Lips and M83.

The You Can’t Escape EP was written, recorded and produced by King Loses Crown with mastering duties handled by John Cuniberti, most noted for his work with the Dead Kennedys.

MANILLA ROAD – To Release “Mysterium” On February 19th, Via Shadow Kingdom Records

Manilla Road - Mysterium - cover promo pic!

Manilla Road is back with their landmark 16th full length album, Mysterium; due out February 19th on Shadow Kingdom Records.

After a career that has spanned more than three decades, the band shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. In fact they’re more active now than ever with all of the live shows booked for 2013; including an appearance at this year’s Maryland Death Fest. The time has come for Manilla Road to break out of the underground bubble and get to the level where they can get some wider acclaim to all of the hard work that’s been put forth all of these years. Mysterium is another quality Manilla Road release that sounds a lot more classic/traditional than their previous, more experimental album Playground of the Damned.

The production on Mysterium is a step above anything Manilla Road has released in the past, bringing the band into the modern era without sacrificing an ounce of their legendary style. With all of their albums, there’s nothing that’s ever the same with the albums they create or the production they have, but that’s what makes Manilla Road, Manilla Road.

Mysterium is currently streaming in full at this location:

Visit for ordering information.
