DORO PESCH, The Voice Of WARLOCK, Celebrates 30th Anniversary Of Legendary “Triumph And Agony” Full-Length; Special US Tour Dates Featuring Guitarist Tommy Bolan Announced

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Released in 1987, Triumph And Agony is the fourth studio album from German Heavy Metal titans WARLOCK. The record was a mammoth success globally with hit singles and MTV’s Headbangers Ball favorites All We Are and Für immer among other now-pinnacle anthems like East Meets West, Metal Tango, Rule The Ruins, and Touch Of Evil. Triumph And Agony stands among Heavy Metal’s true cult classics.

Gushed Decibel Magazine of the zenith offering, “Triumph And Agony contains one glorious anthem after another for the duration of its (too short) forty-minute run time. ‘All We Are’ is the big fist-pumper, their ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’ or ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’.’ ‘Three Minute Warning’ absolutely scorches, something Accept would have been proud to write. ‘I Rule The Ruins’ lays waste to everything and THEN rules it. ‘Kiss Of Death’ provides the requisite tragic vampire soliloquy, and ‘Make Time For Love’ provides the requisite drama ballad. ‘East Meets West’ taps some serious spine with its love letter to the Land Of The Rising Sun, while ‘Metal Tango’ may be the only, well, metal tango. And then there’s ‘Touch Of Evil,’ which ends with one of the most astonishing vulgar displays of screeching ever recorded.”

And three decades later, the record has lost none of its charm. In honor of its 30th anniversary, this September, WARLOCK vocalist Doro Pesch will, for the first time ever, perform the fist-raising full-length in its entirety on two European festival dates this Summer and a special run of US live performances. Joined by original Triumph And Agony guitarist Tommy Bolan alongside bassist Nick Douglas, drummer Johnny Dee, guitarist Bas Maas and guitarist/keyboardist Luca Princiotta, Pesch will hit Worcester, New York City, Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles.

“Triumph And Agony was our breakthrough album in America,” issues Pesch, “and it’s still one of my absolute favorites! I’m so excited to play some of these songs for the first time and I’m so much looking forward to play with Tommy again. I’m sure it’s gonna sound great and we’ll put on a killer show.”

Indianapolis’ SACRED LEATHER Sign To Cruz Del Sur Music

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , on May 28, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Cruz Del Sur Music has inked a recording deal with Indianapolis’ SACRED LEATHER for the release of their debut album Ultimate Force. With influences that are surely evident to any Heavy Metal purist, SACRED LEATHER‘s music seems to emerge directly from the early 80s, mixing elegant and nostalgic Hard Rock/Proto Metal with the most belligerent side of the traditional NWOBHM sound. The recording of Ultimate Force will start in early September for an expected February 2018 release.

SACRED LEATHER was created out of necessity, to summon the spirit of the Heavy Metal forefathers into an age mired in apostasies. Make sure to keep an eye out for the legion of leather! In the meantime, check out the band’s 2016 official video for “Prowling Sinner” here:

SACRED LEATHER:

Wrathchild: vocals

The Devil’s Hellion: guitar

W.A.S.P. – “RE-IDOLIZED: The 25th Anniversary of The Crimson Idol” The Previously Unreleased Film & Soundtrack United After 25 Years!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on May 26, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

As reported on W.A.S.P. Nation (Official)

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.

Scalpel - Methods To Delusion - promo album cover pic - 2017 - #333MOILN

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.

Pre-order: http://scalpel.bigcartel.com/product/methods-to-delusion-pre-order-only

Track Listing:

  1. The Cleaner
  2. Labors of Loathing
  3. The Stink
  4. Feeding the Worm
  5. Interdelude
  6. Methods to Delusion
  7. The Woodsman (Part II)
  8. Brooding in the Gloom
  9. Lung Butter
  10. Intensified Festering

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.
