DESTRUCTION “Thrash Anthems II” – Releases On November 11th, via Nuclear Blast Records!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

From the Destruction facebook:

In 2007, DESTRUCTION proved how successful re-recording some of their timeless classics and re-imagining history could be. The follow-up to 2007’s Thrash Anthems is ready to rock the Metal world and shows how fans can be part of both a band’s history and future. For Thrash Anthems II, DESTRUCTION called upon on their loyal fans through PledgeMusic to help them create the record and contribute to the band’s epic history.

Mastermind Schmier states:
“As it is a part of our past to relaunch classic songs from our history with a fresh face and we had many demands on a Thrash Anthems continuation, we decided to do a second part of this re-animation of classic 80s DESTRUCTION material. For us it was important to choose the tracks with the fans and first when NB did not wanna do the album, we decided to do a pledge campaign to raise the funds for the production, together with the die hards.

To make a long story short, we know not everybody will like these new versions of those thrash evergreens (just listen to the originals then) but it was an important task for us to keep them alive for a whole new generation of metalheads that love those fresh and brutal new recordings. We are very happy now, that our label is finally releasing this collection of thrash classics. The vibe on this record is so vicious, uncommercial and has this 80s feeling with an even more aggressive edge and THAT is was made our THRASH so special, in the good old days and now!”

COMMUNIC – To Release New Album “Where Echoes Gather” On October 27th!

Communic - Where Echoes Gather - promo cover pic - 2017 - #33MO9933N

One of Europe’s leading and most popular Prog Metal acts is finally back: Norway’s Communic Official have made a lasting impression on the scene with their previous four studio albums “Conspiracy In Mind” (2005), “Waves Of Visual Decay” (2006), “Payment Of Existance” (2008) and “The Bottom Deep” (2011), which all have been released by Nuclear Blast. Critical acclaim follows COMMUNIC since day one and a devoted worldwide fan base is hotly anticipating the release of the first COMMUNIC album since six years.

With “Where Echoes Gather”, the band impressively confirms and underlines its exceptional status. COMMUNIC’s first album for AFM is nothing short of another dark and atmospheric masterpiece, created by the very same three guys who founded the band back then. COMMUNIC’s characteristic mixture of prog, power and thrash sounds as fresh and relevant as ever and will amaze the band’s countless fans to the fullest.

“Where Echoes Gather” will be available as Digipak and ltd colored Vinyl (250 units gold, 250 red/marbled).
