Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family of David Z. and to the members of Adrenaline Mob, their crew, families and friends. May David Z. rest in peace.

______________________________

Yes, 2017 has continued where 2016 left off, in regards to losing way too many of our Rock and Metal musicians. David Zablidowsky, aka David Z., passed away on July 14th in Florida, while on tour with his bandmates of Adrenaline Mob. He was only 38 years old. David Z. was killed due to a tractor-trailer hitting the bands’ RV from behind, while said RV was getting a flat tire changed on the side of a highway. If you want the horrible details to this accident, please read about it somewhere else; here at Metal Odyssey I want to celebrate David Z. and Adrenaline Mob, without giving the same carbon-copied details of such a horrifying accident, like too many other music sites are doing right now.

David Z. played bass for Adrenaline Mob, had his own band ZO2 and also performed for the fabulous Trans Siberian Orchestra aka TSO. David Z. played bass for Adrenaline Mobs’ newest studio album: We The People. This is the only Adrenaline Mob album that David Z. plays bass on and he has forever left a wonderful legacy of music. As a fan of both TSO and Adrenaline Mob, I will state without question that both of these music acts thrive on employing the very best musicians of their respective craft; David Z. was no exception.

As a fan, I try my hardest to purchase CDs and merch whenever I have the extra money. I urge you to please buy the new Adrenaline Mob album, play it loud and listen to David Z. play his bass; this is a grand way to celebrate both David Z. and the band. Adrenaline Mob also need every ounce of our support at this time, commenting encouragement and kindness to them on their social media sites I highly recommend. We as fans need to stand by Adrenaline Mob, now more than ever. – Stone

WE LOVE YOU, ADRENALINE MOB:

Russell Allen, Mike Orlando, Jordan Cannata and of course, David Z.

I pray for each one of you to heal, both physically and emotionally. God Bless you all. – Stone

SLOUGH FEG – Rejoins CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on July 18, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

San Francisco true Metal troubadours SLOUGH FEG have rejoined Italy’s Cruz Del Sur Music, the label behind the band’s heralded “Atavism” (2005), “Hardworlder” (2007) and “Ape Uprising!” (2009) albums.

Comments vocalist/guitarist Mike Scalzi: “We are happy to announce that we are back with Cruz Del Sur Music and will begin recording a new album in July! We believe that a smaller ’boutique’ label such as Cruz Del Sur is appropriate for our sound, fanbase and work ethic, and look forward to working with Enrico [Leccese] and company again.”

“I am extremely excited to have SLOUGH FEG back on Cruz Del Sur!” says Leccese. “It is always nice when bands you like track you down. It’s even more special when it’s someone you’ve worked with for about ten years and established a friendly relationship. It’s a recognition that we were doing something right in the past. I can’t wait to hear the new album and share it with the Metal world.”

Continues Scalzi: “The new album will be called ‘The New Organon’, and the songs are somewhat of a return to the heavier side of our sound: more rustic, heavy, churning, medieval/Celtic and proggy sounding riffs, as opposed to the more ’70s rock sounds of more recent albums. But don’t worry: there will be a couple of rockers as well! We will also have some newer, experimental songwriting styles, mixing heavy rock and Metal with the melodic sounds of ’50s and ’60s pop. Imagine DEL SHANNON singing for BLUE CHEER! After all, it wouldn’t be a SLOUGH FEG album without some bizarre surprises!

So, journey we more into the vaults of the Voi-vaudevillian…the Epic-cure for all Epicurean Angst and Ennui. The Celtic cacophony continues!”

One of the most inventive and unique bands to emerge from the American Metal scene, SLOUGH FEG was originally formed in 1990 in Central Pennsylvania under the name THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG. Later that year, the band relocated to San Francisco, which has remained their home base ever since. After releasing a series of demos and their debut self-titled album in 1996, the band signed to Dragonheart Records for the release of 1999’s Celtic music-infused “Twilight of the Idols”. The sprawling “Down Among the Deadmen” would follow in 2000, setting the stage for their monumental sci-fi epic “Traveller”, which was released in 2003.

In 2005, the band shortened their name to simply SLOUGH FEG and signed to Cruz Del Sur Music. That year’s “Atavism” brought SLOUGH FEG into international prominence, with the metal scene hailing Scalzi’s innate brand of storytelling and the band’s penchant for NWOBHM-like dynamics, as found on songs such as “I Will Kill You / You Will Die”, “Hiberno-Latin Invasion” and “Man Out of Time”.

2007’s “Hardworlder” would follow-up “Atavism” in grand fashion, with the band effortlessly blending compact, twin guitar-driven motifs on “The Return of Dr. Universe” and the title track, while showcasing Scalzi’s gruff, one-of-a-kind vocal delivery on the folk-oriented “The Sea Wolf”. The heavier and more straightforward “Ape Uprising!” would see the light of day in 2009, with the band embracing its pure metal and progressive rock music roots on the doomy “The Hunchback of Notre Doom” and vibrant “Simian Manifesto”.

SLOUGH FEG’s 2010’s “The Animal Spirits” saw a joint release by Canada’s Profound Lore Music in North America and Cruz Del Sur in Europe, before moving on to Metal Blade Records for the box-set reissue of the “Twilight of the Idols”, “Down Among the Deadmen” and “Traveller” albums in early 2013. Metal Blade then released SLOUGH FEG’s ninth studio album, “Digital Resistance” in February 2014.

SATYRICON – Unveil First Details About Brand New Album!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 13, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

As reported by Napalm Records:

Nearly three years in the making, SATYRICON have announced that ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’, their highly anticipated ninth studio album, is set for release on 22nd September via Napalm Records.

Recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017 and mixed together with revered studio guru Mike Fraser (who previously worked on SATYRICON’s 2006 album, ‘Now, Diabolical’), ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ is not just a new collection of songs from one of extreme music’s most enduring and reliable bands: this is a wholesale reinvention and a brand new era in SATYRICON history.

Frontman and visionary, Satyr informs us “Approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it’s gonna be my last record. If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special. If there are more records, then I’d better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning. I think it’s really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy.”

‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ is a profound statement about the essence of SATYRICON’s music and the eternal value of art itself. Satyr continues, “The way that I see it is that for any art, be it SATYRICON or any other form of art with substance, in order for you to be able to inhale and completely understand it, it will take a little bit of you as well. If you get it all after a couple of listens, you know that it probably won’t stay with you. So the title is saying, ‘From the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener…’ If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us.”

SATYRICON is also proud to share the album’s front cover – an obscure drawing from 1898 by perhaps the greatest Norwegian artist of all time, Edvard Munch.

‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ will be released in digital format, a CD digipak and gatefold vinyl options. Pre-orders will go live in August.

The band’s seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel, Vengeful Ascension was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome). A sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band’s signature brand of audio venom, Vengeful Ascension 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 instinctually around drummer Zack Simmons‘ and bassist James Harvey’s hammering rhythms with frontman Ben Falgoust’s distinctly commanding roar, his acidic prose more enunciated than ever before, complimenting the apocalyptic proceedings.
