SATAN – Signs With Metal Blade Records

From Metal Blade Records:

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of long-time running NWOBHM legends Satan (Band) to its roster.

The heavy metal quintet has signed a multiple album deal with Metal Blade and has just finished recordings for their tentative new album to be released during the second half of 2018!

Comments Satan: “Metal Blade is part of Satan’s past and we are super excited for it to be part of our future. It seems so fitting, it’s hard to imagine another label that could give us a better platform for our music today.”

While standard bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83’s seminal Court In the Act and ’87’s Suspended Sentence, with their tentative new album Satan make it abundantly clear that in 2018 they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015’s mighty Atom By Atom, in the process displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Having reunited in 2012 and returned to touring duty, Satan – comprised of six-stringers Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey, bassist Graeme English, drummer Sean Taylor and vocalist Brian Ross – once more proved their collective mettle with 2013’s Life Sentence and follow-up Atom By Atom; both records critically acclaimed and maintaining the high standards of their earlier releases. With such a powerful collection in their hands the band were unsurprisingly eager to take it on the road, and they once again had successful tours and festival runs in Europe, North America and South America, culminating with a slot opening for Pentagram in Helsinki, which Tippins counts as a true honor.

Satan will unleash their latest batch of classical Heavy Metal songs in the second half of 2018. Be prepared for one of the best Metal albums of the year and stay tuned for more information about it!

LIZZY BORDEN – Returns With His First Album In 11 years, ‘My Midnight Things’

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, world news with tags , , , , on April 23, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Lizzy Borden - My Midnight Things - album cover - 2018 - #333ILMG332

From the Lizzy Borden facebook:

For decades, Lizzy Borden has been one of theatrical rock’s top front-men. And on June 15th, Borden will issue his first album in 11 years, My Midnight Things, via Metal Blade Records. With the hard n’ heavy tracks of the album opening title cut “Obsessed With You” and “The Scar Across My Heart”, the extended layoff between albums has not dulled his desire to rock and shock.

“Although we have stayed busy touring all over the world, I missed being a recording artist. I look at the new album as a new beginning, I pushed the restart button on my career,” Borden comments.

The album can be pre-ordered (and the “My Midnight Things” lyric video can be viewed) via this link: metalblade.com/lizzyborden – where the record is available in the following formats:

–limited 1st edition Digipak-CD (includes bonus tracks)
–jewelcase-CD
–180g black vinyl
–clear pacific blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–clear burgundy marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–olive/black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–opaque cool gray marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Having signed a new contract with Metal Blade on the strength of three demo tracks, Borden opted to produce My Midnight Things himself, with Joey Scott as co-producer, who also handled all the drumming duties. “I knew what I was going for and had doubts that I could find a producer who would understand that,” Borden explains. “My approach is very different than what is happening in today’s current sound.”

The album was also mixed by Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Adele, U2) and mastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty).

Borden is planning on hitting the road shortly. “I’ve already started working on the ‘My Midnight Things‘ show, and I really can’t wait to play these songs live,” Borden adds. “There are so many talented players out there in the world, I know I will find the right musicians to be on stage with me in my touring band in the new show. And just based on what is being talked about so far, it will be the best show I’ve ever done. I really do feel a new excitement that I have not felt in years. The best is yet to come.”

My Midnight Things – track-listing:
1. My Midnight Things
2. Obsessed with You
3. Long May They Haunt Us
4. The Scar Across My Heart
5. A Stranger to Love

The road demons in GOATWHORE will return to the streets this May on a short run of live dates supporting Satyricon. The MetalSucks-sponsored trek — set to commence on May 13th in Los Angeles, California and run through May 30th in Austin, Texas — follows GOATWHORE‘s recent month-long European live takeover with Sepultura where frontman Ben Falgoust performed in a cast after sustaining a broken leg and fractured foot just days into the journey.

Comments guitarist Sammy Duet of the upcoming dates, “We are fucking excited to be hitting the road for our first US dates of 2018 with Satyricon. This is our first time touring with these guys, and I guarantee you won’t want to miss these shows.”

GOATWHORE w/ Satyricon:

5/13/2018 Regent Theater – Los Angeles, CA

5/14/2018 Metro Opera House – Oakland, CA

5/15/2018 Bossanova Ballroom – Portland, OR

5/16/2018 El Corazon – Seattle, WA

5/18/2018 Marquis Theatre – Denver, CO

5/19/2018 The Truman – Kansas City, MO

5/20/2018 The Forge – Joliet, IL

5/21/2018 Al Rosa Villa – Columbus, OH

5/25/2018 Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY

5/28/2018 Gas Monkey Bar & Grill – Dallas, TX

5/29/2018 White Oak Music Hall – Houston, TX

5/30/2018 Come and Take it Live! – Austin, TX

GOATWHORE‘s latest full-length, Vengeful Ascension, was released last June via Metal Blade Records. Their seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome, Wolfhammer) and serves as the band’s highest charting album to date.

MetalSucks named Vengeful Ascension the band’s, “most vital album since 2006’s A Haunting Curse,” and one, guaranteed to frighten your grandmother directly into her grave.” Team Rock crowned Vengeful Ascension, “…the most mature recording in the GOATWHORE canon…,” while Loudwire added, “Vengeful Ascension has extremity black metal fans will dig, groove that will appeal to death metal aficionados, and potent guitar work thrash lovers can appreciate.”

Vengeful Ascension is out now on Metal Blade Records on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. To preview and purchase the record, visit metalblade.com/goatwhore.

“The album roars with the classic GOATWHORE sound of searing, shredding, and screams of rage. The material also tries some new things, tossing in a bit of blackened atmosphere, adding to the philosophical questions the music dives into.” — Alternative Press
