GHOUL – The Masked Malefactors Of Creepsylvania Premiere “Shred The Dead” – Tour With Carcass Underway + “Dungeon Bastards” Release Day Draws Near

Today, the masked malefactors of Creepsylvania GHOUL are pleased to contaminate the airwaves with a premiere of “Shred The Dead” from their forthcoming Dungeon Bastards opus. In “Shred The Dead,” vocalist Baron Samedi’s commands to retrieve the Omicron Bomb fall on deaf ears, as GHOUL retreats deeper into the Catacombs muttering half-hearted assurances; that is, until Samedi unleashes an army of revivified corpses to persuade them otherwise.  

Elaborates guitarist Digestor:“‘Shred The Dead’ is a song about undead fiends, eldritch, mysterious skateboard tricks, and the efficacy of the prevent defense. If Mr. Mustaine is reading this, I’m sure our lawyers can work something out. You seem like a reasonable man.”

Hear “Shred The Dead” at THIS LOCATION.

You can also check out the band’s fan-made “Ghoulunatics” video HERE as well as the previously unearthed “Bringer Of War” playing at Revolver RIGHT HERE.

GHOUL is currently mucking up stages with blood and dread nationwide supporting Carcass and Crowbar on a seventeen-city US tour. The One Foot In The Grave Tour 2016 will come to a close August 8th. Additional support is being provided by Night Demon. Following their run with Carcass, GHOUL will infect four more cities on a smattering of headlining shows. See all confirmed dates below.

GOATWHORE – Announces US Live Dates Surrounding Ozzfest Appearance This Fall

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on July 21, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Goatwhore - tour promo flyer - September - 2016 - #MO99663ILMFSO

New Orleans’ road warriors GOATWHORE will return to the US tour circuit this Fall on a short run of live abrasions prior to and following their Ozzfest appearance in San Bernardino, California on September 24th. The trek will commence on September 16th and rupture fifteen stages through October 1st. Support will be provided by The Blood Royale on select dates. GOATWHORE‘s latest US journey will follow a two-week stretch of European onstage debauchery set to kick off next month.

Comments GOATWHORE frontman Ben Falgoust: “We have been associated with Ozzfest in the past and are grateful to be playing it this year, but being part of Black Sabbath’s final West Coast show is another legendary experience to be affiliated with and be able to witness first hand, taking in every element of a band that has been a great influence on all levels in the metal world. Also, Ozzfest has given opportunities to countless freshly emerging metal acts to forge new paths and give people new levels of extreme music to connect with and hear… that doesn’t exclude this year. Tons of acts that have been pretty damn strong in the underground metal community will be making their first appearances at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, as well as repeat acts that have been a part of it in the past. So, when you come to see Black Sabbath out West for their last time, come early and be a part of the future of metal, as well as its legendary past.”

Adds drummer Zack Simmons: “We are very honored to be a part of Black Sabbath’s last ever California performance and Ozzfest’s 20th Anniversary. It’ll be a ripping day of heavy metal and a bittersweet farewell to the godfathers of the genre.”

Goatwhore - Constricting Rage Of The Merciless - promo cover

GOATWHORE released their unanimously revered Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length via Metal Blade in 2014.

Constricting… also hit the #21 spot on Billboard’s Rock chart, #7 on the Hard Rock chart, #13 on the Independent chart and, boasting ten mutinous tracks of thick, predatory, subterranean metal, continues to reap the exaltation of fans and critics globally.

JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE – Signs With Frontiers Music Srl; New Studio Album Due In Early 2017

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 20, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Jack Russells Great White - promo band pic - 2016 - #MO99ILMFSO333

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of Jack Russell’s Great White to the label.

Jack Russell’s Great White represents the next phase of the iconic singer’s Rock n’ Roll legacy.

Since Jack Russell’s Great White inception in 2011, the frontman welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana—this time as a guitar player and keyboardist—lead guitarist Robby Lochner (Rob Halford), drummer Dicki Fliszar (Bruce Dickinson) and Dan McNay (Montrose) on bass. The new album on the horizon, which is Jack’s 14th studio album, boasts the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell an icon in the first place.

“I want to say how happy and excited I am about my band,” states Jack Russell regarding the recent signing with Frontiers for the new album. “I have so much respect for Serafino, Mario, Derek and their team and am so thankful to be working with them. The band and I are off the hook about the new material. You are going to love it!”

The Grammys nominated Great White [Band] originally broke out of the Los Angeles scene in 1984 with its self-titled debut. The record was followed by the sophomore release Shot in The Dark and then by seismic platinum-selling outings such as 1987’s Once Bitten… and 1989’s …Twice Shy (which reached #9 on the Billboard Album Chart). Moving over 8 million copies worldwide, they stood out as tried-and-true rock stalwarts into the 21st century until 2011, when Russell went on to form Jack Russell’s Great White.

In 2014 JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE gave fans a taste of new music with the release of the single “Hard Habit” which received rave reviews from fans clamoring for the “classic” early sound of GREAT WHITE. Listen to “Hard Habit” HERE:

https://youtu.be/sZLGhYA8Pm4

Ultimately, the new music is for the millions of fans who stuck by Russell all these years. It’s everything they’ve been waiting for and more. Russell leaves off, “this is fun, first and foremost. I feel like I’m 27 again. I hope it sounds like Great White—but for 2016.”

Frontiers plans to release the new record in early 2017.

JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE is currently performing various concerts around the U.S., for all dates and details visit the band’s website. Upcoming dates include:

July 20 – Stafford, TX
July 21 – Frisco, TX
July 22 – Beaumont, TX
July 23 – Leon, TX
Aug. 19 – Reno, NV
Sept. 29 – Hollywood, CA
