RED DEATH – Announce New Album ‘Sickness Divine’

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 12, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Washington DC Crossover Thrashers RED DEATH are proud to announce their upcoming third studio album and Century Media Records debut “Sickness Divine” for a worldwide release on November 29th, 2019.

RED DEATH checked in with the following comment about “Sickness Divine”: “ This is the record we all wanted to collectively make and we feel good about what we did. Whatever aspects we liked from our past material have been fine tuned and amplified. Any new ideas we wanted to bring to the table fit perfectly and now has opened the door for future material. We wanted to create something unique for our time. A crossover record but one that fully establishes RED DEATH as just RED DEATH and nothing more. A fine balance between what we’ve done and what we needed to do. We started recording with Arthur Rizk in Philadelphia, PA around late May and finished up early August. We are gearing up to tour Europe with the CRO-MAGS as well as preparing ourselves for 2020 and beyond. We are beyond excited and can not wait to share what we’ve created with everyone!”

Look out for the launch of the album’s first single as well as the album’s pre-order starts to happen on September 27th, 2019.

Once more produced by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Sacred Reich) and with cover art – to be seen above – by Timbul Cahoyno (The Black Dahlia Murder, Nocturnus A.D.), “Sickness Divine” is a sledgehammer-to-the-skull riff-ride across its 10 annihilating tracks. Here is the standard track-listing for the release:

Red Death – Sickness Divine:
1. Sickness Divine
2. Face The Pain
3. Sword Without A Sheath
4. The Anvil’s Ring
5. Sheep May Unsafely Graze
6. Path Of Discipline
7. (Refuse To Be) Bound By Chains
8. Dreadful Perception
9. Ravage
10. Exhalation Of Decay

Guitarist Damon Johnson (Black Star Riders/Brother Cane) To Release New Album

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

Damon Johnson Kicks Off 2019 With New Release

MEMOIRS OF AN UPRISING

via Double Dragon Records

First Single “Shivering Shivering” Available 1/25

March 8th Album Available for Pre-Order Now

______________________________________

January 18, 2019  – Today, Double Dragon Records reveals the artwork and release date for Memoirs of an Uprising, the self-produced new album from singer/songwriter/guitarist, Damon Johnson. The album is set for release on March 8, 2019 with pre-orders beginning January 25, 2019. Fans who pre-order Memoirs of an Uprising  will receive the album’s debut single, Shivering Shivering, as an instant grat track.  Orders for a limited edition Red Vinyl pressing of the album can be placed here.

After incredible runs with the bands he co-founded, Black Star Riders and 90’s chart toppers, Brother Cane, Damon Johnson found himself in spring of 2018 in a surprising position. Johnson had just completed a coast to coast tour with BSR supporting Judas Priest, as well as select reunion performances with Thin Lizzy, when he realized there were two things he couldn’t stop thinking about; his family and his music. Would 2019 finally be the year Johnson gives full focus to the music he kept hearing in his mind, composing an album, a true collection of songs that represented his personal vision, plus have the final say about his tour calendar? The answer was a resounding, YES!

Johnson explains, “After that Priest tour I was feeling anxious about some things: getting older, where my career would be in 10 years, how much time I was continually spending (mostly in foreign countries) away from my wife and our two youngest kids…plus I was sitting on a near completed solo album of the most honest music I’ve ever made. Ignoring some hard truths could not be a part of my deal anymore.” So Johnson made the decision to part ways with Black Star Riders, finish his album, and start over…this time completely on his own name.

The resulting album, Memoirs Of An Uprising is a collection that is both fierce and diverse – a powerful springboard for the musician to start his next chapter. Collaborating with his longtime friend and songwriter, Jim “Johnny Blade” Troglen, Johnson began assembling a group of songs in divergent tempos and grooves that appealed to his musical side and then laced them with lyrical themes of betrayal and revenge. “The first two songs we put together were “Shivering Shivering” and “Dallas Coulda Been A Beatdown” and I knew we were off to a great start,” says Johnson. Throughout Memoirs Of An Uprising there are musical events that are strictly meant to get bodies moving, like “Dallas…” and “Making Peace With This Wicked Beast.”  There are some truly challenged literary actors in “We Got A System” and “The World Keeps Spinning Round.” When it is suggested that this could be a concept album, Johnson says, “As much as I’d prefer to steer clear of that label, there is no denying these 10 songs can be consumed in one listen and feel like a complete story.”

Listen to sample of the thunderous first single, “Shivering Shivering”  HERE.

Album pre-order is available HERE.

Track Listing for Memoirs Of An Uprising:

Shivering Shivering

Dallas Coulda Been a Beatdown

Down on Me

We Got a System

Glorious

With a busy year ahead, Johnson will perform his first shows of 2019  at the end of January and continue throughout the year. Partial listing below with more to come.
