UPCOMING FAITH NO MORE BOOK, “SMALL VICTORIES: THE TRUE STORY OF FAITH NO MORE” (SEPT. 12, JAWBONE PRESS), IMPRESSES BAND WITH LEVEL OF DETAIL AND DEPTH

Posted in books, Hard Rock, Music, music news, news, world news with tags , , , on August 28, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Aug. 28, 2018, SAN FRANCISCO – Adrian Harte, the blogger whose website, Faith No More 2.0 (newfaithnomore.com), has become the pre-eminent source for all things Faith No More, releases the book, “Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More” on Sept. 12 via Jawbone Press.

“When I first heard about this Faith No Moe biography, I didn’t know what to think,” said Faith No More co-founder and bass player Bill Gould. “But I have to give credit where it is due. It’s a quality piece. The man has done his research, and it shows. It provided me with more than a few revelations… and I’m in the band.”

While not an official book from Faith No More itself, the 376-page offering features interviews with multiple band members, managers and key figures from the band’s 39-year history and has the full endorsement of the San Francisco-based group.

About “Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More”

“Small Victories…” tells how such a heterogeneous group formed, flourished, and fractured, and how Faith No More helped redefine rock, metal and alternative music. The book chronicles the creative and personal tensions that defined and fueled the band, forensically examines the band’s beginnings in San Francisco’s post-punk wasteland, and charts the group’s ascent to MTV-era stardom. Based on meticulous research and hundreds of interviews, the book combines a fan’s passion with a reporter’s perspicacity.

Since 2009 he has run newfaithnomore.com, through which he has become known and trusted by the band, their management and their fans. He lives in Aubonne, Switzerland.

THUNDERWAR – Reveal Title Track From Forthcoming Album “Wolfpack”

Old school worship! As soon as you get in touch with the songs of this Polish band, you will feel like you are reminded of legendary metal days. Come into life in Warsaw in 2012, THUNDERWAR are paying tribute to bands like DISSECTION, BATHORY, DEATH, OBITUARY and the 1980s NWOBHM. …and much more! After all, the quartet is not content to only emulate their role models. The Poles are also anxious to leave their own accents in the annals of metal. Thus one got to know and appreciate THUNDERWAR on the first EP “The Birth of Thunder” and the full-length debut “Black Storm”.

The five songs of the “Wolfpack” EP continue the chosen path. The Polish group works out even more clearly and compellingly which kind of metal it prefers. This metal is tradition-conscious, harsh and hymnal, and at the same time also complex and exciting. Great riffs, solos, hooklines and poses are part of THUNDERWAR‘s repertoire. The Old School Blackened Death Metal of the quartet has it all! Incidentally, the atmospheric and playful edge of THUNDERWAR‘s metal is surprising and inspiring. These guys know how to write and play metal hymns for eternity.

The “Wolfpack” EP was recorded in Monochrom Studio with producer Haldor (Satanic Audio). Drums were performed by Paweł ‘Pavulon’ Jaroszewicz (HATE), while James Stewart (VADER) filled in for the last live shows of THUNDERWAR. Over their time of existence, the group shared stages with legends such as CARCASS, MAYHEM, AMON AMARTH, ABBATH, DEATH (D.T.A.), OBITUARY, ASPHYX and SINISTER.

“Wolfpack” out May 25th on Lifeforce Records.
