About:

Featured in publications such as Metal Hammer and Billboard, Metalocalypstick Fest not only celebrates women in metal but also gives back to the community. Formed in 2016 as a non-profit organization, they are dedicated to raising funds and donating 100% of proceeds to local charities Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, and Earth Protectors plus they sponsor an independent band picked by Metalocalypstick Fest judges.

The festival was founded by Kaija Kinney of Vancouver’s Anarcheon after researching a lack of female based metal festivals to apply her band to, Kinney took matters into in her own and decided to produce the event.

“This festival means the celebration of both sexes coming together and creating something amazing. People like to say women in metal aren’t a big deal anymore and that we are all the same. I feel that is untrue, this is still a male dominated world and woman are still looked as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences of men and woman rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can’t we celebrate that?” says Kinney.

Italian Trad-Metal Trailblazers TIR Releasing ‘Metal Shock’ May 10th On Gates Of Hell Records

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , , on April 5, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

One of the very first Italian heavy metal bands returns with its first full-length album in eight years, Metal Shock! Trailblazing and traditional metal ensemble TIR will release Metal Shock May 10th on Gates of Hell Records. The album’s first single is streaming below.

Stream “La Luna nel Cerchio” below:

youtu.be/DaUphjvpLoQ

Metal Shock is the band’s second full-length in a career that dates back to 1980. Metal Shock is an album that challenges the old-school metal status quo by having lyrics sung entirely in Italian.

Recorded at Trick Studio in Rome in late 2018/early 2019, Metal Shock is sung entirely in Italian, giving TIR yet another angle in a career that has been marked by going against the grain. Several of the songs found on Metal Shock date all the way back to the band’s halcyon ’80s period and were subsequently re-written and tinkered with until the members of TIR were satisfied. This type of meticulous detail shines throughout the album, where TIR’s penchant for knifing twin guitar melodies, hefty gallops and the multi-faceted vocal capabilities of Cialone are pure touchstones of metal’s undisputed glory era.

Traditional metal fans will instantly heed the call of TIR’s melody-dominated style and taut songwriting approach. Metal Shock marks a new beginning for a band, who, even as they are approaching the four-decade mark, are playing some of their most inspired material to date. TIR shows with Metal Shock that there is nothing stronger than conviction.

Track Listing:

  1. Città In Fiamme
  2. La Sfida
  3. Banche Armate
  4. La Luna Nel Cerchio
  5. Crazy Mama
  6. Dentro Il Vuoto
  7. Lasciateci Fare
  8. Metal Shock
  9. Beat 150
  10. Mitra
  11. Memoria (Faber)

TIR:

Sergio Bonelli – Guitars

Danilo Antonini– Guitars

Dino Gubinelli – Bass

Piero Arioni – Drums

Giuseppe Cialone – Vocals

TIR BIO:

A year away from their 40th anniversary, Italian traditional metal outfit TIR remains one of the best-kept secrets in the underground. Formed in 1980 by the guitar tandem of Sergio Bonelli and Danilo Antonini, TIR opted for the path of most resistance: Instead of releasing studio albums and seeking major label assistance, they preferred to perform live shows. Their performances soon became can’t-miss events in Rome. Aided by fire, pyrotechnics and even live snakes, TIR’s reputation spread like wildfire (no pun intended) in their home city, catapulting their lone release of the decade, 1984’s self-titled demo, into the frenzied world of underground tape trading. However, while the metal scene waited for TIR to record a proper full-length album, the band stuck to their guns and simply kept playing live.

TIR would split in 1986, only to reform two years later. It wasn’t until 2011 that the band saw fit to release an album of original material, the appropriately titled Heavy Metal. Eight years later, TIR (who, in addition to Bonelli and Antonini, comprise long-time bassist Dino Gubinelli, vocalist Giuseppe Cialone and drummer Piero Arioni) return with Metal Shock, their first release for Gates of Hell Records.

NORSEMEN – Italian Death Metallers Announce New Album “Bloodlust”!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on April 2, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

NORSEMEN have joined forces with Time To Kill Records for the release of their debut album “Bloodlust”.

Emerging out of the Northern Italian scene in 2017, NORSEMEN is a death metal band fascinated by Norse Vikings and Norse-Gael culture. Full of grandeur and aggression, the band’s music depicts the ancient Viking world through a brutal and violent soundscape bearing comparisons with Unleashed, Immortal and Amon Amarth.

NORSEMEN build layers of brooding sounds which sometimes unfurl at a glacial pace and other times lurch with rhythmic propulsion, each piece distinct, densely packed, and all-consuming in their evocative atmospheres.

“Bloodlust” will be released on 26th April 2019 via Italy’s Time To Kill Records.

Track List:

  1. Intro
  2. Evil Master
  3. Black Mountain
  4. Fenrir
  5. Bloodlust
  6. Odin
  7. Serpent
  8. Surtur
  9. Warrior’s Fate
  10. Time Wrecked Kingdom

Line-up:

Antonio Brignoli – Guitar

Giuseppe Bergamaschi – Bass

Guido Genovesi – Guitar

Paolo Munziello – Drums

Federico Rota – Vocals

ULCERATE – New Zealand Death Metal Trio Joins Debemur Morti Productions Roster; European Tour To Commence Next Month

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on March 26, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

New Zealand death metal trio ULCERATE have joined the Debemur Morti Productions roster.

Issues the band of the new union: “We are extremely happy to be moving head-first into this next chapter with a partnership that aligns so clearly with our own vision. Debemur Morti has always been in our peripheral gaze – the attention to detail and high level of curation is second-to-none.”

Death metal has always had roots in themes of humanity, darkness, and oppression, but when ULCERATE formed in Auckland, New Zealand in 2000, their unconventional approach to the genre quickly redefined the meaning of those concepts throughout death metal and beyond. The trio’s distinctive treatment of dynamics alongside in-depth lyrical content established the band as a formidable force long before they became the standard-bearers for a new era of death metal, one defined by meticulous passages of understated melodic sensibilities and jarring, tooth-scraping dissonance.

The band’s inexorable march from 2007’s Of Fracture And Failure (2007) to the unparalleled Shrines Of Paralysis (2016) has been terrifying. And it appears the best is yet to come.

Further details on the band’s as-yet-untitled new full-length will be released in the months to come. In the meantime, don’t miss ULCERATE on their upcoming European tour set to commence April 10th and run through April 21st. The trek includes an appearance on this year’s edition of Roadburn. See all confirmed dates below.

ULCERATE:

4/10/2019 IF Performance Hall Besiktas – Istanbul, TR

4/11/2019 Roadburn Festival 2019 – Tilburg, NL

4/11/2019 B52 The Club – Bucharest, RO

4/12/2019 Armageddon Descends VI – Vilnius, LT

4/17/2019 The Grand Social – Dublin, IE

4/18/2019 Audio – Glasgow, UK
