Southern Lord welcomes Amsterdam, Holland’s long-running hardcore punk kings VITAMIN X to the label for the upcoming release of the band’s sixth full-length recording, Age Of Paranoia.

VITAMIN X has unloaded their energetic brand of rock and thrash-soaked hardcore punk since the late 1990s. Having operated through diehard DIY efforts, the band has amassed an arsenal of albums, EPs, singles, splits, and more across a wide array of underground labels, including Havoc Records, Tankcrimes, Underestimated, AgiPunk, Refuse Records, and many others. Their most recent two LPs were recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Iggy Pop, Neurosis), and their 2016-released ”About To Crack” video went viral and reached more than a million views.

Well-known for their energetic and explosive live shows which attract fans from across the metal, punk, and rock spectrum, VITAMIN X has toured around the world several times, from Japan to the United States, from South America to Southeast Asia, and beyond. The band has played on MTV and many large fests including Hellfest, Maryland Deathfest, and many others, and recently toured with Baroness and Harley Flannagan’s Cro-Mags.

The newest chapter in the band’s lineage, the new VITAMIN X full-length, Age Of Paranoia, was recorded by Igor Wouters at ARC Studios in Amsterdam. Packing sixteen volatile tracks into a white-knuckled twenty-eight minutes, Age Of Paranoia surges with rapid-fire punk angst packed with ripping rock leads and raised-fist gang-chant anthems. The album includes several special guest guitar solos by J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr., Witch) and Bubba Dupree (Void, Soundgarden, Dave Grohl’s Probot, Brant Bjork), and is completed with cover artwork is by Marald (Baroness, Kylesa, High On Fire).

VITAMIN X states of their liaison with Southern Lord, “This will be our first release on a major/bigger label as we’ve always operated in the do-it-yourself scene, even though bigger labels were interested in us in the past. We feel Southern Lord really fits with us, and Greg Anderson is an amazing guy, who just like us, comes from a hardcore punk background but is also into all kinds of other styles of music.”

Anderson offers, ”VITAMIN X creates music that pushes boundaries within a genre that is typically limited, a really unique fusion of old-school hardcore and rock, metal, and punk.”

Age Of Paranoia will be released on LP, CD, and digital formats May 18th through Southern Lord; watch for the artwork, track listing, audio samples, preorders, and more to be released in the weeks ahead.

VITAMIN X will be presenting their new songs for the first time at fests and shows throughout 2018; watch for tour dates to be announced throughout the year.

BEHEMOTH To Support SLAYER On The North American Leg Of Their Final World Tour Alongside Lamb Of God, Anthrax, And Testament

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , , on January 26, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

SLAYER - Lamb Of God - Anthrax - Behemoth - tour flyer - 2018 - #333MO8383ILMNTG

BEHEMOTH, along with Lamb Of God, Anthrax and Testament, all bands who have close ties to and have shared the stage multiple times with Slayer over the years, will accompany the band on leg one, North America, of what will be Slayer’s final world tour. The trek begins May 10th when a twenty-six-date odyssey will have them crisscrossing the country, from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, January 26th; log onto www.behemoth.pl for all ticketing info.

“If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave Lamb Of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road…” – Randy Blythe, Lamb Of God

“It’s truly an honor to be on Slayer’s final tour. Anthrax and Slayer have toured together for decades, we are family, band and crew, so we want to help give Slayer the best send-off possible, and to have one last blast with our friends. But you know, at the end of the day, Slayer will never die.” – Frank Bello, Anthrax

“Well, well, well… the dream comes true AGAIN it seems. BEHEMOTH will be teaming up with mighty Slayer again for another extensive North American run later this year! Nothing short of epic if you ask me! I cannot wait to confront American legions again before we unleash the new record. One of the biggest metal tours this year: Testament, BEHEMOTH, Anthrax, Lamb Of God and Slayer. Can you miss it out? FUCK NO!” – Nergal, BEHEMOTH

“Sharing the stage with Slayer once again is going to be an honor, and to be a part of the final tour is going to be a special privilege for us. Slayer has influenced so many aggressive bands in their career. This tour will be an epic time for all who attend. Do yourself a favor and clear your calendars when this show comes to town. This will be your last chance to see a tour like this. Get ready North America for the devastation.” – Chuck Billy, Testament

Chilean Thrashers NUCLEAR have released a new video, covering DEATH’s classic “Evil Dead.” Originally released 29 years ago and given NUCLEAR’s extreme makeover,  the video includes tour footage, as well as shots from the recording sessions of the band’s latest release Formula For Anarchy (Candlelight Records 2015). Check out the video below or at:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoJftcHhWp8&hd=1

NUCLEAR had this to say about the video: “It is just our humble tribute to one of the greatest musicians metal music had the opportunity to listen. Chuck Schuldiner’s indelible mark is still influencing tons of new metal acts around the world and Scream Bloody Gore was one hell of a start for all of us”

NUCLEAR is currently working on new material and a new album is expected to be released in 2017 by Candlelight/Spinefarm Records.

Formula for Anarchy, the ferocious new album from  NUCLEAR, is out now on Candlelight Records. Purchase and/or stream tracks at:

SINISTER “Dark Memorials” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, rock music with tags , , , , , on October 7, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Sinister - Dark Memorials - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #33MMNSS24

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

European Death Metal warriors, SINISTER, have released their new studio album of cover songs, Dark Memorials, this past Summer via Massacre Records. Man, this offering of Death Metal from SINISTER is a dandy! In all Metal honesty, I already have Dark Memorials reserved for a spot in Metal Odyssey’s Top Ten Metal Albums Of 2015 list. Dark Memorials destroys! There are tons of Thrash(ness) on this album to satisfy fans of the old-school style, while the raging Death Metal is nothing short of stunning. Seriously, my Metal brethren!

The cover of the Carcass classic Exhume To Consume is breathtaking, even with some flashy keyboards making a brief appearance. Yes, keyboards. From Bolt Thrower to Autopsy, with Kreator and Death in-between, this is a cover song album to hunger for! SINISTER have given these Metal classics all the Metal respect they so importantly deserve. Hell, there’s no better way to give thanks and praise to such legends of Metal, as SINISTER has done on Dark Memorials.

Sinister - promo band pic - 2015 - #MO33MNSS99799

Adrie Kloosterwaard on vocals is a Death Metal monster! Shit, what more can be said. The entire band gets my seal of Death Metal approval for their ear blistering performance on this Dark Memorials album. I have listened to Dark Memorials constantly since September and I’m never gonna stop recommending this album. Dark Memorials is one of the best cover song albums I’ve ever enjoyed in my Metal life! My favorite song on this album? All. Okay, it’s the cover of Autopsy’s Ridden With Disease. Metal be thy name. – Stone
