BATTLECROSS – Concert Photo Gallery And Review – Oddbody’s Music Room, Dayton, Ohio – May 7th, 2016

Back on May 7th of this year, I went to see the mighty BATTLECROSS at Oddbody’s Music Room in Dayton, Ohio. This venue plays host to many, many national, worldwide and local Metal bands. On this night Metal legends Suffocation and Soulfly were the headliners; with Abnormality and Lody Kong also as opening acts. I went solo to this night of amazing Metal mayhem and I also stayed in the pit for the entire BATTLECROSS set. Yes, I’m crazy at age 50. I did get pushed around pretty damn good too and I stuck it through.

BATTLECROSS are touring in support of their 3rd killer studio album: Rise To Power.

The next day my body felt like crap from the physical punishment it endured from being in the pit for both BATTLECROSS and Abnormality. I wouldn’t have changed a thing I did and that’s the way Metal is supposed to be if you want to be a human target in the pit. BATTLECROSS played an amazing set of songs and had their packed house of fans going crazy. Lead singer Kyle Gunther commanded the stage, never-ceasing to jump around for a second. Kyle stalked his fans and gave them their monies worth!

The entire BATTLECROSS band is extremely talented at their Metal crafts and are a Modern Thrash Metal band to reckon with. I absolutely enjoyed myself smashing and thrashing around to their Metal! I did (luckily) pause at times to take some photos of BATTLECROSS in action, thanks to a few BIG dudes at the front-line that shielded me from the carnage going on in the pit behind us. BATTLECROSS are from Michigan and are not to be missed if you worship in-your-face, high intensity Thrash Metal. Enjoy these photos I took and thank you for visiting. Metal Be Thy Name – Stone

HERMAN FRANK To Release New Album “The Devil Rides out” In November!

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

HERMAN FRANK is a German Metal legend. A guitarist and songwriter supreme, Frank was a member of both Accept and Victory. He also founded his own band Moon Doc (which released three albums in the 90’s and early 2000’s). In 2009, his first “solo” album ‘Loyal To None’ was released, followed by ‘Right In The Guts’ three years later. After re-issues of both “Loyal To None” and “Right In The Guts” by their new label AFM Records, HERMAN FRANK and his band are back with a brand new offering now!

Titled “The Devil Rides Out”, this crushing piece of German metal will make fans cry out in joy. It combines Frank’s masterful guitar work with the raspy vocals of Swedish powerhouse Rick Altzi (Masterplan, At Vance), the powerful drumming of Andre Hilgers (ex-Rage) and the talent of Michael Müller (Jaded Heart) on bass. “The Devil Rides Out” is a stunning piece of work, produced by Herman Frank and mixed by Charly Bauerfeind (Blind Guardian, HammerFall, Helloween). It’s a must have for the collection of every Accept- and Victory fan especially, but will amaze Metalheads far beyond that.

“The Devil Rides Out” will be released on November 18th, available as CD, ltd. Digipak (incl. bonus track). ltd. silver Vinyl and ltd. Box Set.

Death Angel - The Evil Divide - promo album cover pic - #MO77799433

Three decades into their celebrated career, DEATH ANGEL remains as hungry as ever. As a result, uncompromising urgency and unpredictability drive The Evil Divide. The group – vocalist Mark Osegueda, lead guitarist Rob Cavestany, guitarist Ted Aguilar, drummer Will Carroll, and bassist Damien Sisson – satiate the appetite for buzzsaw speed riffs, double bass mayhem, and scorching vocals over the course of ten new anthems.

The Evil Divide stands out as the culmination of thirty-plus years of music for DEATH ANGEL. It kicked off with legendary debut, The Ultra-Violence, in 1987. The classic Frolic Through The Park began to cement their legacy and even earned the distinction of landing on Loudwire’s list of the “Top Ten Thrash Albums NOT Released By The Big 4.” The group broke up following 1990’s Act III only to reunite in 2004 on Art Of Dying for the next generation.

In 2008, DEATH ANGEL teamed with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Rush, Mastodon) for Killing Season recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606. In 2010, Relentless Retribution boasted a cameo from virtuosos Rodrigo y Gabriela, while 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood bowed at #72 on the Billboard Top 200, selling 5,400 copies the first-week and earning the group’s first ever entry onto that respective chart.

KRYPTS – Announce October Release for “Remnants of Expansion” – Launch Premiere of Album Track “Entrailed to the Breaking Wheel”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 9, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

krypts-remnants-of-expansion-promo-album-cover-pic-mo099ilmnf333

Finnish Death/Doom overlords KRYPTS are set to return with their second full-length, Remnants of Expansion. Dark Descent Records will release the album October 28th on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital formats. Pre-orders begin on September 22nd.

Three years may have passed since Unending Degradation, but KRYPTS have lost none of their excruciating power that made their debut album such a special one, erecting a bridge in between their homeland glorious and down-tuned early 90’s glory and something even more sinister and doom-laden.

And the arrival in 2015 of Jukka Aho from GOREPHILIA on second guitar has done nothing to alter that rare chemistry, on the contrary…

Just like its predecessor, Remnants of Expansion reeks of that ancient feeling but dives even deeper into the abyss. Clocking altogether at 33 minutes, there’s something very majestic and solemn about its five songs.

krypts-promo-band-pic-2016-33ilmf099mo933

Like a serpent circling its prey, the Finns like to play shadow and it’s never truer than on the album’s opener, the monstrous 10 minute “Arrow of Entropy.” But its follow-up, “The Withering Titan,” for instance starts off with Mongol throat chanting, two minutes later the listener is buried under a deluge of blast beats, only to let the instrumental title-track drown you in the cold and bottomless waters of funeral doom.

Once again adorned with Timo Ketola cryptic artwork, Remnants of Expansion is like a big haunted house at a top of a dead trees infested hill on the outskirts of town by a moonless night. Grand in scope, seemingly devoid of any human touch and yet towering over us like a malevolent entity. Behold. – written by Olivier Zoltar Badin 

“Entrailed to the Breaking Wheel” is streaming now on Dark Descent Record’s BandCamp page:
