WITHERFALL “Vintage” – New EP Releasing On March 22nd

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on January 18, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

In November 2018, US dark melodic metal act WITHERFALL released its much-celebrated second studio album, “A Prelude to Sorrow”. Never resting on its laurels, the group led by the creative duo comprised of vocalist Josheph Michael (Sanctuary) and Jake Dreyer (Iced Earth) now announces the “Vintage” CD, LP, and digital release to be available during the upcoming acoustic tour with Sonata Arctica and released via Century Media Records on March 22nd, 2019.

PRE ORDER AT:

http://www.witherfall.com/merch

WITHERFALL reveals:

“During the sessions for “A Prelude to Sorrow” two cover songs were recorded that showed a different side of WITHERFALL, originally intended to be bonus tracks. A dark and somber version of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers “I Won’t Back Down’ with vocals recorded with Michael Wagener (Metallica, Skid Row) and an epic version of the Helloween classic ‘A Tale That Wasn’t Right’. With the announcement of the “ Sonata Arctica: Acoustic Adventures 2019 w/Witherfall”, it was decided to release these covers along with a few acoustic renditions of favorite WITHERFALL tracks.

Along with new keyboardist Alex Nasla and session percussionist Timbali Cornwell (Smokey Robinson, Earth Wind & Fire ), Joseph Michael, Jake Dreyer and Anthony Crawford retreated to Harmony Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA (Adele, Miley Cyrus) armed with acoustic guitars and bottles of wine to start working on acoustic arrangements for the tour. The sessions were fruitful and two acoustic versions of past WITHERFALL songs were recorded: a medley of ‘Vintage’ and ‘Nobody Sleeps Here…’ (originally on “Nocturnes and Requiems”) and an alternate arrangement of ‘Ode to Despair’. Instead of keeping these as secrets and finally making the rare ‘The Long Walk Home (December)’ also available to an audience outside of Japan, the “Vintage” EP offers a collection of music that shows another dimension of the WITHERFALL sound.”

Mixed and mastered by Chris Zeuss Harris and again featuring artwork by Kristian Wåhlin, “Vintage” will be released as strictly limited, hand-numbered CD digipak, on black and limited coloured vinyl as well as on all digital platforms.

WITHERFALL already have kicked off the presale of “Vintage” at www.witherfall.com/merch whereas the worldwide digital and physical pre-order via Century Media Records starts January 25th. Furthermore, the “Vintage” EP also features new keyboardist Alex Nasla who will join WITHERFALL on the group’s upcoming European tour kicking off March 13th in Oslo, Norway.

LONG LIVE WITHERFALL.

VALDUR ‘Goat of Iniquity’ Streaming In Its Entirety – Album Out Now

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on October 20, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Eastern Sierra Black/Death Metal quartet VALDUR have released their punishing new album Goat of Iniquity. The album can be streamed and purchased at the links below.

bloodymountainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/goat-of-iniquity

valdur.bandcamp.com/album/goat-of-iniquity

VALDUR released this statement concerning the album:

“Valdur – Goat of Iniquity: another chain of songs containing deep extremities and primitive, suffocating atmospheres.  This is not a continuation of our previous release; this album moves backwards in a far more violent structure and sound; like a deathmetal cassette from 1988.  ‘Goat of Iniquity’ was recorded by us and us alone in the Bloody Mountain Bunker, with no triggers or other redundant studio shortcuts.  Vicious underground metal recorded in a live setting.  Not for trendy ears!  For Valdur, ‘Goat of Iniquity’ is another step deeper into the obscure halls of integrity.”

Track List:

  1. Divine Halls of Obscurity: Pt. I
  2. Goat of Iniquity / Devouring the Whore of Darkness
  3. Divine Halls of Obscurity: Pt. II
  4. Spiritual Exhaust (The Beyond)
  5. Inhale the Floodgates Open
  6. (Iniquitous)

Recorded at the Bloody Mountain bunker by Valdur, winter 2018.
Mixed by Matthew at Canyon Lodge studio.
cover art by: FarronLoathing
Mastered by Dan at Morbid Mastering

Goat of Iniquity will be available in digipack format as well as digital download, along with a new t-shirt design exclusive to this release.

DUNGEÖNHAMMER – “Infernal Moon” Out Now

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Infernal Moon, the full-length debut from old-school black/thrash metal duo DUNGEÖNHAMMER, is out now on Pulverised Records. The album is available on CD and digital formats at pulverised.bandcamp.com/album/infernal-moon.

DUNGEÖNHAMMER was formed by two maniacs – one from The Netherlands, the other France – who met while studying in Milan, Italy. What started as a friendship born from a shared passion of ’80s thrash and speed metal bands soon became the repulsive, two-headed beast known as DUNGEÖNHAMMER.

With Infernal Moon, DUNGEÖNHAMMER delivers pure filth, hypnotic, convulsion-inducing rhythms and an uncontrollable urge to bang your head. DUNGEÖNHAMMER rounds out this mayhem with vocals reminiscent of Tom G. Warrior’s Hammer ov Hell days and a nod to early ’90s Scandinavian death metal.

Cover art by Timo Ketola (Watain, Deathspell Omega, Antaeus, Krypts). The vinyl edition of Infernal Moon is coming soon from Me Saco Un Ojo Records.

Australia’s ROAD WARRIOR “Sweating Out the Poison” In New Lyric Video

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on October 9, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Road Warrior - Power - promo album cover pic - 2018 - #33MO277ILMGN

Australian True Metal brigade ROAD WARRIOR have released a lyric video for “Sweating Out the Poison,” a track from forthcoming Gates of Hell Records debut album Power. Get to sweating at youtu.be/6pDDxuAcREQ

ROAD WARRIOR will release their debut full-length album, Power, on October 12 via Gates Of Hell Records. Featuring eight tracks of “diverse, fist-clenching, manly and classic metal,” Powerwas recorded at Against The Grain Studiosin Adelaide, South Australia with Andy Kite at the helm.

Pre-order Power on CD and Vinyl at: http://tinyurl.com/ycp8hjec

Stream “Don’t Fight Fate” below:

roadwarrior-metal.bandcamp.com/track/dont-fight-fate

Comments bassist/vocalist Denimal Blake: “It is a statement of our intent: To inject ‘Power’ back into a heavy metal scene that has been somewhat bereft of it. Whether if it truly is an objective case or not, that is our summary and the crux of the band. When heavy metal first gained a foothold it was the personification of musical power, a very special time that is finally coming back to strength, regardless of trends, due to its dominance.”

ROAD WARRIOR (who are rounded out by guitarist Overdryve and drummer Villon) are said to have recorded Power with “gusto, the gnashing teeth and thrusting of loins,” meaning, the album’s cuts are leaning heavily on the band’s ’80s influences as well as the proto-metal scene from the latter part of the ’70s. Says Blake: “Our influences are in a blender this time, laced with the flavor of ROAD WARRIOR, METAL CHURCHBLACKKOUT, early IRON MAIDENSAVATAGEJUDAS PRIESTLOUDNESSRIOTTWISTED SISTER and HEXX.”

Accordingly, Blake says the album’s lyrical themes are quite varied: “Sex, sex and more sex, along with a bit of historical conspiracy, power, pre-diluvial civilization and hotter sex.” Tongue-and-cheek aside, Blake and his ROAD WARRIOR bandmates remain steadfast in their conviction to true heavy metal.

“We have an acute awareness of the NWOTHM [NEW WAVE OF TRADITIONAL HEAVY METAL] and know that we stand out in many ways, whether it’s due to influence, locality or pedigree. Either way, I cannot speak for the ears of others, but we are supremely confident the album will live up to the album cover and title and help usher in a new age of classic rock and metal as the trends dissolve.”

An official video for album track “The Train 1702” is available at this location. The band released the following statement concerning the song:

“This song is based on the urban legend of the North of Russia. It is about the freight train number 1702, which travels through the deep forests of Northern Europe. According to legend, during the journey, the crew meets an alien object that first surrounds the train, and then picks up the train and moves it with a giant speed. The song describes what is happening and the emotional feeling of the crew, including visual and sound design tools (the average tempo of the composition, like the train, guitar parts emphasize what the song is about, there are original sounds of the train). Musically, the song is inspired by American groove metal and Scandinavian black metal.”

Band Bio:

Second To Sun is a metal band from Saint Petersburg, Russia, founded in 2012 by its guitarist Vladimir Lehtinen. Second To Sun concentrate on the musical and creative aspect more and use visual elements on every song (artwork, lyrics, behind the song infos etc.) to give more depth and back story to the music. The band’s music contains a blend of metal genres: on the one hand, it has the many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other hand, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as Emperor, Mayhem, and Dakthrone.

Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen’s songwriting, Gleb Sysoev‘s soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky‘s groovy drum lines. The band releases two versions of each album – the vocal and the instrumental one. Each individual instrumental composition is accompanied by unique artwork and a hefty description of the story the composition tells, which provides a deeper insight into the music, as well as the band’s inspiration and creative process. Second To Sun has released two albums – The First Chapter and The Black, and is now getting ready to release their third album: The Walk.

German Metal Force HAMMER KING Are “At The Mercy Of The Waves” In New Video

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on October 6, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Hammer King - Poseidon Will Carry Us Home - promo cover pic - 2018 - #33MO733ILMGD

German True Metal ensemble HAMMER KING have released a music video for At The Mercy of the Waves, a song from forthcoming album Poseidon Will Carry Us Home. Check it out at: youtu.be/HN1Zj2CdLLA or below:

HAMMER KING will release their third full-length, Poseidon Will Carry Us Home, on October 5 via Cruz Del Sur Music. Recorded at Studio Greywolf with POWERWOLF bassist Charles Greywolf at the helm, Poseidon Will Carry Us Home is an unabashed bow to classic, anthemic, hook-laden metal, proving HAMMER KING was more than up to the task of meeting the often-high expectations that come with a band’s third album.

The album will be available on CD, digital, and black (300 copies) and blue (200 copies) vinyl LP formats.

Pre-order Poseidon Will Carry Us Home: www.cruzdelsurmusic.com/store/

Variety abounds on Poseidon Will Carry Us Home, with HAMMER KING engaging in strident, call-to-arms jaunts like the opening title track and “Battle Of Wars”. Twin guitar harmonies and fierce gallops highlight “7 Days And 7 Kings” and “Where The Hammer Hangs”, while the true metal call is heeded on the mid-tempo “Warriors Of Angelhill” and “Glorious Nights Of Glory.” HAMMER KING‘s progression is best exemplified on album standout “We Sail Cape Horn,” an adventurous, sea-faring number that is equal nods to classic IRON MAIDEN and progressive rock.

An album stocked with future anthems at every corner, Poseidon Will Carry Us Home is representative of a band now hitting its creative stride – and fully realizing it.

GREYHAWK – To Release Debut EP: “Ride Out”

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on October 5, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

CD400_out

Seattle-based classic heavy metal band GREYHAWK are gearing up for the release of their debut EP, Ride Out. Featuring six blazing tracks of trad metal in the vein of DIO, MANOWAR and BLIND GUARDIAN, GREYHAWK will self-release Ride Out on October 18th.

The EP’s first single, “The Abdication,” is streaming at this location and below:

Pre-order Ride Out at greyhawkmetal.bandcamp.com.

Ride Out was recorded, mixed and mastered by Cody J Brumlow at Hangar 12 Studios, Mountlake Terrace, Washington. Album artwork by Jesse White.

The story of GREYHAWK begins in late 2016, when Jesse Berlin, a neoclassical shredder from New York, and Darin Wall, a proud rock warrior from the northern wastelands of Canada, joined forces in Seattle, Washington. Together they scoured the city for fellow warriors who were true enough to join their cause. After over a year of searching, reinforcements finally arrived in the form of Enrico Mariuzzo, another rock and roll shred demon all the way from Italy, and the booming operatic voice of Revere Taylor, who while dazzling audiences at Seattle Opera also yearned for heavy metal glory. The four gathered on the regular, crafting songs and planning their attack, and then finally the last piece of the puzzle arrived from across the Cascade Mountains in the form of the powerhouse drummer Nate Butler.  After many hours of blood and sweat, GREYHAWK entered the studio, employing the expertise of audio wizard Cody J Brumlow to forge their debut EP, Ride Out.  Now they set out to bring their brand of heavy metal to the unsuspecting masses…

GREYHAWK:

Rev Taylor – Vocals

Jesse Berlin – Guitar

Enrico Mariuzzo – Guitar

Darin Wall – Bass Guitar

Nate Butler – Drums

METAL CHURCH “Damned If You Do” – Releases On December 7th, 2018, Via Rat Pak Records!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 4, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

From Rat Pak Records:

West coast metal veterans Metal Church will release their 12th full length studio album Damned If You Do via Rat Pak Records on December 7, 2018 and will also be available in Europe via Nuclear Blast and Japan via KING Records. The latest release is the follow-up to their highly successful 2016 album “XI”, which saw the return of legendary front-man Mike Howe. Damned If You Do is a cross between the band’s iconic Blessing In Disguise and The Human Factor. This new offering features ten fully-charged, classic-metal influenced songs that showcase the sound that has garnered the band a solid fanbase for over 3 decades.

Kurdt Vanderhoof comments: “I feel this album is a very powerful statement to what Metal Church has always been about. A tough and aggressive old school metal album while maintaining a level of musicality and melodic sensibilities”.

Damned If You Do also features new drummer Stet Howland (ex WASP / Lita Ford). Stet first arrived after the departure of long-time drummer Jeff Plate, but soon after joining the band was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Miraculously his treatments for the aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma worked and he was able to begin recording the new album.

Speaking of the new album Stet Howland comments, “From the minute we started tracking this new CD, I had the feeling that it was going to be something special. I knew that I was going to do my best to deliver a top drum performance, not only because of the high standard set by past Metal Church drummers, but also because this is my first CD release after being sick. I’m beyond happy with all aspects of this CD, great songs, great performances, great production, just an overall great CD! I love it!”

Metal Church - Damned If You Do - album flyer - 2018 - #1MO333ILG

Damned If You Do is something truly unique and special. The songs are powerful, precise, and Metal Church’s musical vision is unified. From the haunting opener “Damned If You Do” to the final hard-edged track “The War Electric,” this new album is sure to resonate with fans from the band’s early years while garnering new ones. Songs like “By The Numbers,” “Guillotine” and “The Black Things” are sure to become instant favorites!

Mike Howe comments: “I’m very excited about the new release. It all came together way better than I even imagined. It’s a great feeling to work really hard on a musical project pouring your heart into it and hoping it comes out as something you can be proud of in the end. I have been listening to it every day and loving it! I hope our fans do as well!”

Metal Church “Damned If You Do” is available in various formats and bundle configurations including a ltd Blue, Black & white vinyl pressing with an alternate track sequence also an Ultimate Fan Bundle that includes a personal “Thank-you” phone call from Mike Howe, exclusively available at: https://ratpakrecordsamerica.com/metal-church

SATAN – NWOBHM Legends To Begin US Tour This Week

Satan Cruel Magic - tour flyer - October 2018 - #33MO737ILGMS -

NWOBHM legends SATAN will kick off a short run of US live dates this week. The trek – which rolls from October 5th through October 14th – includes an appearance at the Frost And Fire IV festival in Ventura, California. See all confirmed dates below.

SATAN:
10/05/2018 Brick By Brick – San Diego, CA
10/06/2018 Frost And Fire IV – Ventura, CA
10/07/2018 Whiskey – Los Angeles, CA
10/08/2018 Elbo Room – San Francisco, CA
10/09/2018 El Corazon – Seattle, WA
10/10/2018 Grog Shop – Cleveland, OH
10/11/2018 Reggie’s – Chicago, IL
10/12/2018 Saint Vitus – Brooklyn, NY
10/13/2018 Great Scott – Boston, MA
10/14/2018 Voltage Lounge – Philadelphia, PA

SATAN will be touring in support of their Cruel Magic full-length, recently issued via Metal Blade Records. Bearers of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, movement and responsible for 1983’s seminal Court In the Act and 1987’s Suspended Sentence, SATAN makes it abundantly clear with Cruel Magic that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of ten 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 – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

To preview and purchase Cruel Magic, visit: metalblade.com/satan.

SATAN, some forty years on from their inception, has made an album that contains all your favorite elements in the traditional heavy metal style and offers them up in a way that will feel completely familiar to you, and yet take you down paths within this framework that you have not yet tread. And that, my friends, is its own (un)cruel magic.” – Metal Injection

Progressive Death Metal Vets ZEALOTRY To Release ‘At The Nexus Of All Stillborn Worlds’ On Unspeakable Axe in December

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 29, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Two years after their last full-length, ZEALOTRY are back with their newest offering (and first with Unspeakable Axe Records), titled At The Nexus Of All Stillborn Worlds. The album will be released on December 7th.

A promo video for the album’s title track is available at youtu.be/MB0AVpKcA4I or below:

This is progressive death metal at its most uncompromising; dense with intricate riffs, elaborate bass lines, mind-melting lead guitar work and more. Clean choral vocals add a Timeghoul-ish aspect to certain songs; in other places, bewildering effects occasionally will warp a track into an aural acid trip. Elaborate structures occasionally peel back to reveal a Chasm-inspired melodic development.

Featuring a member of Chthe’ilist and influenced by a broad palette of death metal explorers including At the Gates, Obliveon, Brutality, and Atheist, At The Nexus Of All Stillborn Worlds is a dizzying new peak in ZEALOTRY’s 13-year history. Experience eight tracks and nearly 43 minutes of some of the most dense and rewarding music death metal has to offer, on CD, cassette and digital platforms from Unspeakable Axe Records. Look for pre-orders to be available next week.

Track List:

  1. At The Nexus of All Stillborn Worlds
  2. Accursed
  3. Lethe’s Shroud
  4. Primus Venatoris
  5. The Hole
  6. Universal Deceit
  7. The Sky Bleeds Nightmares
  8. Irredeemable
