Vancouver, BC / Miami, FL / Hannover, Germany – March 3, 2017

Round 7 of The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise set sail
February 2-6, 2017, marking the seventh consecutive sellout for 70000TONS OF METAL™. Priding themselves as being an International Heavy Metal Family at Sea, 70000TONS OF METAL™ 2017 sailed with Metalheads from an astounding 74 different countries who enjoyed a luxury Caribbean cruise leaving from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, FL to Labadee, Haiti and back.

With 61 acts representing practically every genre of Metal, playing 123
shows across 4 stages, 70000TONS OF METAL™ has been noted as the biggest and best Heavy Metal Cruise, with one of the highlights being Jamming With Waters In International Waters. Hosted by Jeff Waters of ANNIHILATOR, the official 70000TONS OF METAL™ All Star Jam once again wrote a new chapter in Heavy Metal History when a spectacular lineup of the musicians on board 70000TONS OF METAL™ 2017 teamed up to perform classic Metal Anthems!

Prior to sailing there was a lot of online discussion amongst Sailors about
what they could do to provide aid to those in need in Haiti, which inspired
the crew at 70000TONS OF METAL™ to make their own contribution – they will be auctioning off a very unique Michael Schenker 2004 model Dean Guitar, which was signed by the world-class artists who participated in the jam:

Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE), Esa Holopainen (AMORPHIS), Jeff Waters / Fabio Alessandrini / Rich Hinks / Aaron Homma (ANNIHILATOR), Charlie Benante / Frank Bello / Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Ben Ash (CARCASS), Mark Osegueda / Will Carroll (DEATH ANGEL), Lisa Cuthbert (DRACONIAN), Jon Gallagher (DYING FETUS), Van Williams (GHOST SHIP, OCTAVIUS), Axel Ritt (GRAVE DIGGER), Bobby Blitz (OVERKILL), Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY), Fabio D’Amore (SERENITY), Rich Ward (STUCK MOJO), Alex Skolnick / Steve DiGiorgio / Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT), Thomas Vikström / Linnéa Vikström (THERION), Russ Bergquist (TOUCH THE SUN), and Steven Wussow / Philip Restemeier (XANDRIA).

Since 2010, Direct Relief has provided over $204 million in critically needed medical aid to over 200 healthcare facilities and
organizations caring for Haiti’s most vulnerable communities. For more

The 70000TONS OF METAL™ Dean Guitar Auction for Haiti will begin March 5, 2017 at 2PM Eastern time, running until March 12 at 3PM Eastern time – From Europe this is 20:00 CET, or 19:00 GMT.

Voted Best Metal Band for four years running (Austin Music Awards, 2012-2016), Dead Earth Politics continues to prove their longevity and power. Now charging forward with their latest release, “The Mobius Hammersmith”, the band’s relentless work ethic is clearly leading to their much deserved recognition and success.

Forged from the soul of the Austin Metal scene, Dead Earth Politics is a blade that cuts like no other. Said to easily on any bill ranging from Iron Maiden to Black Sabbath to Lamb of God, they are the band that truly unites sub-genres.

Having marked their tenth year, they continue to relentlessly scribe stellar music – and the sky remains the target. With passion coursing through their veins and dedication in their hearts, Dead Earth Politics strives for perfection in their craft.

Vancouver thrashers TERRIFIER are proud to announce they will be headlining this year’s 2nd annual CEMR MetalFest in Calgary, AB on April 8th. The festival is presented by Canada’s Extreme Metal Radio, Voxx Promotions and The Forge featuring a delectable bill of various genres of metal that are assured to keep you on your feet and make your weekend a severe bangover with tons of amazing memories.

The line up from April 6th – 8th includes some of Western Canada’s best up and coming Metal talents such as W.M.D (Calgary, AB), Display of Decay (Edmonton, AB), Planet Eater (Regina, SK), Train Bigger Monkeys (Calgary, AB) and more (full line up below).

test-your-metal-records-logo-2017-mo99ilmfso333

TERRIFIER unleashed their new album ‘Weapons of Thrash Destruction’ on January 20, 2017 via Test Your Metal Records to follow their 2013 EP ‘Metal or Death’ and 2012 full-length ‘Destroyers of the Faith’. Incorporating jack hammer drums, bulldozing bass-lines, a twin-lead attack that leaves posers pulped in its wake, and vocals that can level mountains, TERRIFIER’s motto could well be ‘thrashing is our business…and business is good’.

Their new release ‘Weapons of Thrash Destruction’ features such soon to be classics as ‘Bestial Tyranny’, ‘Skitzoid Embolism’ and ‘Nuclear Demolisher’ and ‘Sect of the Serpent’, a song inspired by Conan the Barbarian as vocalist Chase Thibodeau says ‘the idea was to trample the weak and hurdle the dead on this one!’

WAN – To Unleash “Wan Way To Hell” February 10th on Carnal Records

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on February 3, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

wan-way-to-hell-promo-cover-pic-2017-mo83ilmfso993

Norse old-school Black Metal miscreants WAN are set to release “Wan Way to Hell,” their third and most devastating album to date.

“Wan Way to Hell” is pure audio vitriol. In recording the album, this unholy pack of bastards has succeeded in their one mission – fucking destroy!

WAN has fired the first shot with the video for King of Evil. Hail the king at https://youtu.be/1nbTQ99fnw0

Carnal Records will unleash this demon on February 10.

“Wan Way to Hell” Track Listing:

1 – Known as Dead

2 – King of Evil

3 – Till Kamp

4 – Igeltjärn

5 – The Challenger

6 – Wrought

7 – As If

8 – Spitfire Metal

9 – Full Sving

10 – Piss on your Grave

11 – Svarthäll

12 – Inn i Ilden

13 – Wan way to Hell

wan-promo-band-pic-2017-mo33ilmfso993

WAN was formed in 2009 as a triad of aggression with the intent of bringing metal back to its roots – raw, filthy and in the gutter with a twist of punk. A year later, the band released its first full-length “Wolves of the North.” The album was reissued on limited-edition cassette in 2011.

Core members Aganaroth, Isengrim and Tsjud recruited drummer Dimman for the debut’s 2013 follow-up Enjoy the Filth. Dimman’s time in WAN was short-lived, opening the door for current skin-basher Draup.

“Wolves of the North” was re-recorded in 2015 and released together with “”Enjoy the Filth” as a limited gate-fold double LP. WAN that same year recorded five new tracks Necroholic, a split-CD with Curse and Styggelse and released a video for “Pentagram Rockers,” off the second album.

The band has since brought their primal, old-school Black Metal to several stages in preparation the oncoming slaughter of Wan Way to Hell.
