Thrash Metal band, Krystos from Boise Idaho, has announced the February 28th, 2017 release of “Lolth Domain”. This five song EP release follows a full length titled “Walk Through the Inferno” in 2010 and “Blood Magick” in 2013.

Billy Thornock, lead singer of Krystos, writes about “Lolth Domain” in their Dec 6, 2016 interview with Metalheads Forever: You can expect to hear, “Our signature sound, except MUCH more refined. Writing as a band has really started to click with us and we have felt more ‘on the same page’ with this release. In the past it was always 1 to 2 people working on the songs, but we are all started contributing together and really are trying to lock in a musical vision”. Their most recent interview on Metalhead Forever is located at: http://www.mhf-mag.com/content/interviews/krystos-interview/

ANNIHILATOR – Will Release “Triple Threat” via UDR Music, On January 27th, 2017

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on November 28, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Legendary Canadian Thrash/Heavy Metal masters Annihilator have lacerated many senses over the years with their supreme, aggressive Metal mastery, and on January, 27th, 2017, their legion of loyal fans can look forward to a series of fresh sensory experiences as Annihilator proudly present Triple Threat, a three-disc collection of Annihilator’s music in a trio of very different scenarios.

The main disc comprises a set of Annihilator’s classics performed acoustically, with band leader/guitarist/ songwriter and vocalist Jeff Waters bringing together band members Aaron Homma and Rich Hinks, Vancouver BC drummer and friend Marc LaFrance plus Ottawa session player Pat Robillard.

Recorded and mixed by Waters, this quintet recorded everything live, off the floor and in single takes at Watersound Studios in Dunrobin, Canada during late May and early June, 2016, giving Waters one of the most challenging, satisfying and perhaps ‘electric’ creative moments in his career.

The second disc will feature Annihilator’s vicious set from the 2016 Bang Your Head Festival, a set which illustrates the very best of what Annihilator is known for –tight, sharp, technically excellent and melodic Thrash Metal music. It will also contain some exclusive inside-Annihilator off-stage perspective, which captures further elements, flavours and detail of the band which fans will flip over.

“This was one of the coolest things I have done in my long career. Having 5 people in a room, from all different backgrounds and talents, coming together to play songs from the past and to try to sound like we are one but totally live and with feel. This was one of the biggest challenges that Annihilator has faced, musically.
Enjoy… we sure love this one.” – Jeff Waters, Annihilator

annihilator-triple-threat-promo-album-cover-pic-2017-33mo99ilmnso737

Triple Threat will be available as DVD/2CDs, Blu-Ray/2CDs, a 2CD audio-only and digital download.

The BluRay and DVD visual content is split in 3 parts:

Chapter I – Annihilator Un-Plugged: The Watersound Studios Sessions (62 mins)
Chapter II – Annihilator Live at the BANG YOUR HEAD Festival (45 mins)
Chapter III – ANNIHILATOR: Summer Mini-Documentary 2016 (50 mins)

Plus Bonus Video Chapters: “Jeff’s Commentary On The Acoustic Songs” and “Jeff Answers Fan Questions”.

“Annihilator really is Canada’s thrash band; kind of an extension of the Big Four. We have Sepultura in the South, we have Annihilator to the North. I love Jeff, I love the band, I love his playing. His compositions are terrific. Annihilator rules.” – David Ellefson, Megadeth

FIREWIND – Sign With AFM Records For North American Release Of New Album “Immortals”; Details Revealed!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

firewind-immortals-promo-cover-pic-2017-337ilmfso9mo7

Greek melodic Power Metal masters FIREWIND, the group led by guitar-wizard and Ozzy Osbourne band member Gus G., are proud to announce the release of their upcoming 8th studio album, “Immortals”, which will be released on January 20th, 2017 via AFM Records in North America (Century Media Records in Europe).

Gus G. checked in to comment about “Immortals” and its artwork (which can be seen above) as follows: “Today we’re very happy to reveal the cover artwork for our 8th studio album. It’s titled “Immortals” and it’s the first concept album FIREWIND has ever made. Since we’re from Greece, we thought it would be a cool idea to make a concept of Greek history and heritage. So, on this album we focused on the legendary battles of Thermopylae and Salamis during the 2nd Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC. The artwork was once again created by our longtime collaborator, Gustavo Sazes and we feel it reflects the vibe we tried to capture on this album – Epic, Powerful, Glorious, Everlasting.”

“Immortals” marks the first time FIREWIND used an outside co-producer, working with Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69), who not only engineered, mixed and mastered the album, he also co-wrote it together with Gus G. The album’s track listing reads as follows:

firewind-immortals-promo-cover-pic-2017-337ilmfso9mo7

FIREWIND – “Immortals”:

1. Hands Of Time
2. We Defy
3. Ode To Leonidas
4. Back On The Throne
5. Live And Die By The Sword
6. Wars Of Ages
7. Lady Of 1000 Sorrows
8. Immortals
9. Warriors And Saints
10. Rise From The Ashes
11. Vision Of Tomorrow (bonus track on Digipak)

A first album’s online single is set to debut on November 25th, but in the meantime you can already check out a few sample riffs in a play-through clip that Gus G. recorded in co-operation with Toontrack’s EZmix 2 and the Metal Guitar Gods 4 EZmix Pack expansion here:
