https://ayinaleph.bandcamp.com/track/crystal-bell

About Ayin Aleph:

Hollywood based, but European raised, Ayin is at the confluence of classical music and heavy rock, combining Baroque influences (massive choirs) and romanticism (rhythmic and lead acoustic piano). With an extravagant personality, massive guitars, sophisticated bass lines, powerful back beats, philharmonic accompaniment and magnificent compositions, a new dawn of rock has broken.

Ayin is a consummate performer; classically trained and renowned concert pianist; operatic vocalist; provocateur, poet, model and fashion designer Ayin Aleph is a ready-made brand. Combining Baroque style and composition with the driving force of modern band format, Ayin has created her own genre of music that is passionate and inspired.

Thought provoking lyrics, infectious melodies, blazing rhythmic passages and high fashion coalesce in Ayin Aleph, rendering any preconceived notions of what makes a Pop, Rock or Metal star, pass. Ayin speaks directly to the senses with timeless, contemporary and cutting edge sensibilities.

Ayin has 2 albums and 6 music videos to her credit, and has performed extensively in Russia, the United States and throughout Europe.

Metal Blade lablemates BATTLECROSS and WOVENWAR will kick off their North American Fury Tour tonight supporting Soilwork and Unearth. The trek will coil its way through over two dozen venues, coming to a close on November 16th in Toronto, Ontario. Additional support will be provided by Darkness Divided.

Following the journey, BATTLECROSS will close 2016 with a three-week headlining run: the third installment of the Winter Warriors Tour. This year, support will be provided by Metal Blade labelmates Allegaeon and Necromancing The Stone. In conjunction with the Veterans Ticket Foundation, the Winter Warriors Tour will once again offer free admission to members of the US Armed Forces and the band will donate a portion of their proceeds to local veterans’ organizations in each city.

Battlecross - Rise To Power - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #0528MOBC

Veterans are invited to register for free tickets at vettix.org. BATTLECROSS will be touring in support of their latest album, Rise To Power, which landed on the Billboard charts at #103, marking the band’s second Billboard chart entry (2013’s War Of Will entered the charts at #130). To preview and purchase Rise To Power, visit: metalblade.com/battlecross.

On October 21st, WOVENWAR will release their sophomore album, Honor Is Dead. More aggressive and fluid than its self-titled predecessor, Honor Is Dead was written with contributions from all members, while the music for Wovenwar was mostly written before vocalist Shane Blay joined the band. The results speak for themselves, capturing a group that sounds truly unified, and hungry.

Expanding upon the ruthlessly catchy melodies and hooks of their debut and driven by darker lyrical themes, Honor Is Dead makes for a listening experience with true depth, and a broad emotional range. To hear latest single, “World On Fire,” visit AltPress.com at THIS LOCATION where a drum play through for the track can be viewed, alongside an exclusive interview with drummer Jordan Mancino. For preorder info and to check out a concept video (by the band’s own Nick Hipa) for “Censorship” visit: metalblade.com/wovenwar.

HAMMER KING – Makes Official Video Offering To Heavy Metal Gods

hammer-king-king-is-rising-promo-album-cover-pic-2016-33mo99ilmfso7773

German Power Metal Quartet HAMMER KING have released an official video for the title track from forthcoming album King is Rising. The video was shot at  the PFAFF-Areal-Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH in Kaiserslautern by JWKM (Jürgen Walzer Kreative Medien). Go forth and get your Heavy Metal groove on at the link below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUI2L5KGYl4&feature=youtu.be

Cruz Del Sur Music will release HAMMER KING‘s sophomore album King is Rising on November 11.

Recorded at Powerwolf‘s Studio Greywolf, King is Rising is once again packed with the truest Heavy Metal in this and all possible other worlds. It is Heavy Metal in the tradition of IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST, crossed with the German Power Metal of HAMMER KING‘s peers.

King is Rising contains 12 Metal anthems literally made for live performances with a nod towards faster paced songs compared to debut album Kingdom Of The Hammer King.

Thematically, the second chapter of HAMMER KING‘s saga pertains to war and revolt, while the King’s battle stories drastically bespeak today’s global crises.  For the album’s artwork the band decided to again partner with brilliant German artist Timo Würz, and the result speaks for itself. Timo is the kind of artist who guarantees quality in every aspect of his job!

hammer-king-promo-band-pic-2016-33mo99ilmfso99333

King Is Rising will be available on Compact Disc (with one bonus track), Vinyl and Digital formats. The album’s release party will be held on November 12 at Cruz Del Sur Music own’s Burn This Town Festival in Rome. Also appearing will be Sacred Steel, Rosae Crucis, Battle Ram andGraal.

HAMMER KING consists of former ROSS THE BOSS vocalist Titan Fox, former SALTATIO MORTIS’ drummer Dolph A. Macallan rounded out by K.K. Basement on bass and Gino Wilde on guitars.

QUIET RIOT – Announces New Vocalist SEANN NICOLS For 2017

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 5, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

quiet-riot-promo-band-pic-2016-33mo9ilmfso337

Los Angeles, CA, October 5th 2016 – QUIET RIOT is very pleased to introduce Seann Nicols (formerly of Adler’s Appetite) as their new vocalist starting in 2017. Quiet Riot are currently in the studio with Seann recording their forthcoming full length album of all new material, to be released on Frontiers Records in early 2017. They will also be releasing a music video, which will be the first QUIET RIOT music video since 1989. The band will kick off their tour on January 27 in Medina, Minnesota and will continue their touring schedule around the globe.

Vocalist Jizzy Pearl who is departing to concentrate full-time on his solo career will finish off the 2016 QUIET RIOT tour dates through December. Frankie Banali says the departure is amicable. “QUIET RIOT thanks Jizzy for a great three years and we wish him the very best.”

QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first Heavy Metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album “Metal Health”. After several member changes, and three years after the untimely passing of original lead singer Kevin DuBrow in 2007, Frankie Banali, an original member of the 1982 Metal Health classic line up, continued the musical legacy of QUIET RIOT along with bassist Chuck Wright who has been in and out of the band since 1982, and guitarist Alex Grossi who has been in the band since 2004.

Ukrainian Power Metallers DEFIANT To Release “Time Isn’t Healing” In November

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 3, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

defiant-time-isnt-healing-promo-album-cover-pic-2016-mo33ilmfso9937

Ukrainian Power Metal quintet DEFIANT will release sophomore full-length album Time Isn’t Healing November 25. The album’s title track is streaming at this location or below:

Since its formation in 2008, DEFIANT‘s mission has been to enthrall fans with a brand of power metal that is as muscular as it is melodic. DEFIANT went on to release no less than three EPs and 2012’s full-length debut Masquerade, collectively laying the groundwork for what can only be called its magnum opus: Time Isn’t Healing. The crunching riffs and soaring leads of guitarist Andrey Turkovsky blend seamlessly with the epic, often breathtaking keyboard work of Victoria Terzieva, while Stanislav Proshkin‘s gritty yet tuneful vocals offer a captivating stamp of distinction. The clanging bass lines of Oleg Yakovlev and airtight drumming of Eugeniy Smolin form a robust rhythmic foundation.

defiant-promo-band-pic-2016-mo999ilmfso33773

It’s the quality and consistency of the songwriting that is perhaps most impressive about the new album. Whether the up-tempo Power Metal pummel of “Milestones of Time” or the mid-tempo elegance of “According to the Acts,” Time Isn’t Healing sinks the hooks in deep and keeps the listener in a state of rapt attention from beginning to end.

Fans of HELLOWEEN, RAGE and similar icons of the genre are strongly encouraged to give this one a spin.

Album teaser video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK-ZPgHNloI

Album artwork by Mayhem Design.

Track Listing:

1. Strom (Intro)
2. Milestones in Time
3. The Jericho
4. Funeral Feast
5. Time Isn’t Healing
6. According to the Acts
7. The Dream
8. Don’t Trust the Words

10. The Grief
11. Soul is Burning
12. The Eagle

OVERKILL – Legendary New Jersey thrashers, OVERKILL, are putting the finishing touches to their upcoming studio record entitled The Grinding Wheel. To give their fans a taster of what to expect from their forthcoming record, a brand-new single called Our Finest Hour, will be released in the first week of OVERKILL‘s European tour, on November 4th.

The 7″ single will be purchasable on black, clear, green and splatter vinyl.
Pre-order now: http://nblast.de/OverkillFinestHourNB

“Looks like the ‘machine’ is up and rolling, but for all good things we wait. The delay for “The Grinding Wheel” will take us to 2/17, at the start of the US tour… but fear not, the Euro tour will happen and happen with some new music! Friday Nov. 4th, we will let go of the first cut; “Our Finest Hour”, available on various colors of vinyl along with some ear shattering madness. We will also have it with us on the road to quench your thirst and fill the hunger. So you heard it here first and you can hear more live the first time on tour! To the road, onward and upward into ’17!”

BB, OVERKILL
