Vancouver thrashers TERRIFIER are proud to announce they will be headlining this year’s 2nd annual CEMR MetalFest in Calgary, AB on April 8th. The festival is presented by Canada’s Extreme Metal Radio, Voxx Promotions and The Forge featuring a delectable bill of various genres of metal that are assured to keep you on your feet and make your weekend a severe bangover with tons of amazing memories.

The line up from April 6th – 8th includes some of Western Canada’s best up and coming Metal talents such as W.M.D (Calgary, AB), Display of Decay (Edmonton, AB), Planet Eater (Regina, SK), Train Bigger Monkeys (Calgary, AB) and more (full line up below).

TERRIFIER unleashed their new album ‘Weapons of Thrash Destruction’ on January 20, 2017 via Test Your Metal Records to follow their 2013 EP ‘Metal or Death’ and 2012 full-length ‘Destroyers of the Faith’. Incorporating jack hammer drums, bulldozing bass-lines, a twin-lead attack that leaves posers pulped in its wake, and vocals that can level mountains, TERRIFIER’s motto could well be ‘thrashing is our business…and business is good’.

Their new release ‘Weapons of Thrash Destruction’ features such soon to be classics as ‘Bestial Tyranny’, ‘Skitzoid Embolism’ and ‘Nuclear Demolisher’ and ‘Sect of the Serpent’, a song inspired by Conan the Barbarian as vocalist Chase Thibodeau says ‘the idea was to trample the weak and hurdle the dead on this one!’

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”.

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

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

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

BATTLECROSS And WOVENWAR Have Begun North American Tour With SOILWORK, UNEARTH And DARKNESS DIVIDED

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 17, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

battlecross-fury-tour-2016-promo-flyer-mo833ilmfos33mo733

Metal Blade lablemates BATTLECROSS and WOVENWAR will kick off their North American Fury Tour tonight supporting Soilwork and Unearth. The trek will coil its way through over two dozen venues, coming to a close on November 16th in Toronto, Ontario. Additional support will be provided by Darkness Divided.

Following the journey, BATTLECROSS will close 2016 with a three-week headlining run: the third installment of the Winter Warriors Tour. This year, support will be provided by Metal Blade labelmates Allegaeon and Necromancing The Stone. In conjunction with the Veterans Ticket Foundation, the Winter Warriors Tour will once again offer free admission to members of the US Armed Forces and the band will donate a portion of their proceeds to local veterans’ organizations in each city.

Battlecross - Rise To Power - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #0528MOBC

Veterans are invited to register for free tickets at vettix.org. BATTLECROSS will be touring in support of their latest album, Rise To Power, which landed on the Billboard charts at #103, marking the band’s second Billboard chart entry (2013’s War Of Will entered the charts at #130). To preview and purchase Rise To Power, visit: metalblade.com/battlecross.

On October 21st, WOVENWAR will release their sophomore album, Honor Is Dead. More aggressive and fluid than its self-titled predecessor, Honor Is Dead was written with contributions from all members, while the music for Wovenwar was mostly written before vocalist Shane Blay joined the band. The results speak for themselves, capturing a group that sounds truly unified, and hungry.

Expanding upon the ruthlessly catchy melodies and hooks of their debut and driven by darker lyrical themes, Honor Is Dead makes for a listening experience with true depth, and a broad emotional range. To hear latest single, “World On Fire,” visit AltPress.com at THIS LOCATION where a drum play through for the track can be viewed, alongside an exclusive interview with drummer Jordan Mancino. For preorder info and to check out a concept video (by the band’s own Nick Hipa) for “Censorship” visit: metalblade.com/wovenwar.

Friday Nov. 4th, we will let go of the first cut; “Our Finest Hour”, available on various colors of vinyl along with some ear shattering madness.
