FRAGMENTUM – Release New Single, “Quirigua Successors”

Posted in dark metal, Metal, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , on August 13, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Belgian melodic dark metal band FRAGMENTUM has released a brand new track, “Quirigua Successors.” The song is a continuation of the Mayan themes explored in the band’s 2021 release, “Masters of Complexity”.

FRAGMENTUM guitarist/vocalist Jan Bruggeman comments on the single: “Quirigua Successors’ is a song about a Mayan clan that endured, but survived Clash Of The Clans and Feast Of The Flesh, as described in our previous album Masters Of Perplexity. The album ends with ‘Secrets Of The Stones,’ like extinguished Maya settlements do, but the Quirigua people are a strong and smart clan. Will they reveal these secrets and who knows what else the future brings for them?”

Stream “’Quirigua Successors” now on Spotify.

FRAGMENTUM is a melodic dark metal band from Lokeren, Belgium founded by Jan Bruggeman and Gunnar Nopens, accompanied on stage by Wouter Macaré (drums) and Ozzy Voskuilen (bass). The band has been described as a hybrid of Depeche Mode and In Flames, featuring melodies, synths, and ambient sounds combined with heavy riffs and crushing grooves.

FRAGMENTUM:
Jan Bruggeman – Vocals & Guitar
Gunnar Nopens – Vocals & Guitar
Ozzy Voskuilen – Bass (live)
Wouter Macaré – Drums (live)ht

In 2019, FRAGMENTUM released its first full-length album, Pugnacity, which showcased a more straightforward approach than earlier material. The album’s lyrics were focused on personal turmoil and inner struggle.

A concept album, titled “Masters Of Perplexity” was released in 2021. This album explored Mayan history and philosophy, each song a chapter in an elaborate and epic story. After the album’s release, FRAGMENTUM embarked on a short tour across Eastern Europe.

You can experience the band’s most recent creation, a single titled “Quirigua Successors” this summer. The song is a precursor of their next full-length album, coming later this year.

FRAGMENTUM has shared the stage with some of metal’s biggest names, including Children of Bodom, Swallow the Sun, Wolfheart, Soulfly, and Annihilator.

We are all human beings and, as such, we are not infallible”.

JEFF BECK And JOHNNY DEPP – To Release New Album “18” On July 15th

Posted in classic rock, classic rock news, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

For The 13-Track Collection, The Legendary Guitarist And Hollywood Vampires Co-Founder Record A Range Of Covers That Touch On Motown, The Beach Boys, John Lennon, The Velvet Underground, Killing Joke, And More, Along with Two Depp Original Compositions

First Single, The Depp Original “This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr” Is Out Today

Jeff Beck And Johnny Depp Are Currently On Tour In Europe Through July 25th

LOS ANGELES – Jeff Beck found a kindred spirit in Johnny Depp when the two met in 2016. They bonded quickly over cars and guitars and spent most of their time together trying to make each other laugh. At the same time, Beck’s appreciation grew for Depp’s serious songwriting skills and his ear for music. That talent and their chemistry convinced Beck they should make an album together.

Depp agreed and they started in 2019. Over the next three years, they recorded a mix of Depp originals along with a wide range of covers that touches on everything from Celtic and Motown to the Beach Boys and Killing Joke. In 2020, during the pandemic, they previewed their collaboration with their well-timed cover of John Lennon’s “Isolation.” 

The duo’s 13-track album, dubbed 18, will arrive on July 15. Beck explains the album title: “When Johnny and I started playing together, it really ignited our youthful spirit and creativity. We would joke about how we felt 18 again so that just became the album title too.”

18 will be available on CD and digitally, with a 180-gram black vinyl version coming on September 30. The cover features an illustration of Beck and Depp as 18-year-olds that was drawn and designed by Beck’s wife Sandra. 

Leading up to the release of 18, Beck has launched a European tour, with Depp as a special guest, which will conclude on July 25 at L’Olympia in Paris.

For the last 12 years Depp has recorded and toured with the Hollywood Vampires, a band he started with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. The supergroup has released two studio albums that include guest appearances by some of rock’s biggest names: Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, and Joe Walsh. The list also includes Beck, who played guitar on “Welcome To Bushwackers,” a song on Rise, the Vampires’ second album, which came out in 2019.

Soon after, Depp asked Beck to play lead on a tune he’d written, the album’s first single “This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr,” an homage to the actress/inventor. Beck says it was the catalyst for the collaboration and is one of his favorite songs on the new album. “I was blown away by it,” he says. “That song is one of the reasons I asked him to make an album with me.” The track is available today digitally, along with an accompanying music video. Click here to view now.

Of Beck, Depp adds, “It’s an extraordinary honor to play and write music with Jeff, one of the true greats and someone I am now privileged enough to call my brother.”

In the studio, Beck says he and Depp challenged each other to leave their comfort zones with the songs they chose to cover. “I haven’t had another creative partner like him for ages,” Beck says. “He was a major force on this record. I just hope people will take him seriously as a musician because it’s a hard thing for some people to accept that Johnny Depp can sing rock and roll.”

Depp justifies Beck’s faith on the new album by showing off his incredible emotional range on songs like The Velvet Underground’s “Venus In Furs,” the Everly Brothers’ ballad “Let It Be Me” and Marvin Gaye’s soul classic “What’s Going On.” On the instrumentals, Beck demonstrates why he’s universally revered as a guitar god with stunning versions of Davy Spillane’s “Midnight Walker” and two songs from the Beach Boys’ masterpiece, Pet Sounds – “Caroline, No” and “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder).”

My Recent Cassette Purchases: CORPSEGRINDER, BURNING WITCHES And KILLER BE KILLED – Reviewed

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, music reviews, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

The self-titled CORPSEGRINDER release is a monstrous and impressive leap for this Death Metal legend. CORPSEGRINDER is jam packed with infectious riffs, entertaining lyrics and more badass grooves than I can count. This is way more like Obituary than Cannibal Corpse; yet CORPSEGRINDER stands alone on its musicianship and overall nod to straight-up Metal.

Killer Be Killed exemplify’s how Metal has evolved up to this point in time; a modern Metal sound that benefits from the brilliance of this supergroup. Max Cavalara shows off clean vocals with his growls, while each song on Reluctant Hero I find to be outstanding. Greg Puciato is a tremendous force on this album. An amazing Metal album which I already consider as a classic.

Burning Witches carry the torch for Traditional Heavy Metal while adding their own recipe of sound. These ladies bring a hefty dose of speed and melody to their songs, along with some growls and European Metal vibes. The Witch Of The North settles into this band’s growing and impressive discography perfectly. If you love DORO, you’ll love Burning Witches.

Finnish Progressive Metal Band Sum of Seven Released A New Music Video The Enemy!

Finnish progressive metal band Sum of Seven released a new music video The Enemy. Famous Finnish model, dancer & singer Joalin Loukamaa, known from global Pop band Now United is featured on the video. The track is released in collaboration with Inverse Records.

Watch the music video The Enemy: https://youtu.be/V1Ir_pUPd_w

Listen to The Enemy single on streaming services: https://push.fm/fl/ioqtfcwd

About “The Enemy” single, Ari commenting:

“We wanted to create a video that has a nice balance of story and the band playing. Originally we planned this to be purely the band playing the song but the place we found for the shoot inspired us to add a story element. Joalin Loukamaa did an excellent job in our last video and we asked if she would join the project. Fortunately she said yes and did an amazing job again. We got Saku Suominen from Sakuvisuals to direct and work his magic behind the camera and we had an absolute blast filming this. We feel that the atmosphere of the video and the song complement each other in just the right way and the finished product definitely makes us proud.

The Enemy is a song that starts out fast and aggressive and really carries that momentum from start to finish. It is one of the heaviest songs that we have made so far. When that intro explodes you know that we’re going somewhere fast. But at the same time when the vocal melodies kick in they steer the song into a different direction than you might expect, still carrying the aggressive momentum. That element of surprise is really what crowns the song for me. The Enemy has one of the best melodies we have written in my opinion and Marko’s delivery is just absolutely breathtaking. The lyrics talk about freedom, victory and survival, but they also have connotations to the questionable interpretations of those subjects. The message can be interpreted as positively empowering, but also as a disturbingly delusional illusion.”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music festivals, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

After two years of forced hiatus, Metalitalia.com, Vertigo and Cerberus Booking are pleased to look to the future with optimism and announce the first bands for the Metalitalia.com Festival 2022! The event, scheduled for mid-September, this time will gather the hardest, most infernal and darkest metal around, for two days of extreme music set to take place at the Live Music Club in Trezzo Sull’Adda (Milan, Italy).

Day 1 – Saturday 17th September 2022
With pleasure we can finally reconfirm the mighty SODOM as headliners of the first day! For the first time, Tom Angelripper‘s band will present the songs of the devastating latest album “Genesis XIX” to the Italian fans. Thanks to this record the German act managed to enter the German top ten and secure great praise from fans and media.

In the role of co-headliner we will find another legendary band: CORONER! The Swiss band, currently working on their new album, returns to Italy after 6 years of absence for an exclusive show full of classics. To complete this round of announcements for the “day one”, we are happy to introduce IN.SI.DIA, long running torchbearers of Italian thrash metal, and HYADES who will reunite specifically for this event.

Day 2 – Sunday 18 September 2022
We descend directly into the bowels of Hades with the headliner of this day. All hail WATAIN, who will bring to our stage their ferocious show, which as usual will be extreme in every aspect and with a unique atmosphere. Those who have seen them live cannot forget what the Swedish black metal band is capable of evoking. To support them we will have ABBATH, the band led by the charismatic ex-frontman of IMMORTAL, which will release the new album “Dread Reaver“ at the end of March.
Before this double shot of black metal, we will welcome ASPHYX, absolute masters of doom-death metal, and TRIBULATION, another great band and winner of a Swedish Grammy that in recent years has been hailed as a new force in dark metal. Also please salute BØLZER, a Swiss duo with an absolutely personal take on the black-death metal sound.

We are currently working on the confirmation of other big international names and we plan to announce them within a few weeks. Stay tuned!

Once again, the Live Music Club, our historic venue in the outskirts of Milan, will welcome you with an outdoor lounge area, several refreshment points, a beergarden, a metalmarket and a special area where free meet & greet sessions will be held with all the available bands.

Watch the lyric video here: https://youtu.be/LTMU4F7_j0c or below:

“Jean Grenier is a true story of 17th century poverty and endless hunger that pushed Jean Grenier to make his own solutions. He fell into insanity wearing his wolf skin cloak that gave him a dark freedom which was ripped away from him in the end. Within every human there is a beast that will step in when the situation forces to do so.” – Band backgrounds the single.

WILDSTREET – To Release 2 New Singles ‘One Tattoo’ And ‘Born to Be (RLK)’

Posted in Hard Rock, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , on January 31, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

WILDSTREET had a huge 2021 and are set to follow suit in 2022. They released their stunning new album Wildstreet III via Golden Robot Records. The band spent most of 2021 on tour in the USA which included Rockfest WI, but they remarkably also toured in Europe performing at Swiss Rock Cruise in Switzerland, France and Belgium.

They are set to release 2 new singles on February 15th: One Tattoo’ and ‘Born to Be (RLK)’. Both tracks were originally released in 2014 under the name RAVE LA KILL and both will be released with accompanying lyric videos.

‘One Tattoo’ is an electronic love song which is slick and modern. On ‘Born To Be (RLK)’ the song structure is identical to the version on Wildstreet III. This version has a more modern and electronic vibe, with all the arena hooks one would expect from WILDSTREET. Both singles were mixed by Kyle Kelso and mastered by Howie Weinberg.

The project released two singles in 2014, ‘Born to Be’ & ‘One Tattoo.’ ‘Born to Be’ was later re-recorded and released as part of Wildstreet III, released in 2021. The album has 1.8 million streams on Spotify. They also released a cover of THE 69 EYES classic ‘Mrs.Sleazy.’ They have been added to editorial playlists by Apple Music and Spotify.

MESHUGGAH Reschedules 2022 US Headlining Tour

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news with tags , , , , , , , on December 27, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

Swedish metal titans MESHUGGAH have been forced to postpone their US headlining tour to the Fall of 2022.

In an official statement, the band notes, “We regret to inform that MESHUGGAH will have to reschedule their US headlining tour, originally planned for early 2022, to September/October 2022. While the ongoing pandemic has been throwing various curve balls on us all the past year, ultimately delaying the completion of the upcoming MESHUGGAH studio album – there are other concerns that have forced us to make this unfortunate decision. Determining factor is the need to prioritize the physical health of one of the band members who is currently undergoing medical treatment related to a skin condition on his hands, hindering him from rehearsals and from all in all playing his instrument. While we are optimistic for his future recovery, we know it will not be possible for him and the band to be ready to perform already in February 2022.

“With these shows now moving, Converge will unfortunately no longer be able to do the tour. However, we are grateful that Torche will still be performing with us. Another special guest to replace Converge and to complete the bill is to be announced.”

Tickets for the original dates remain valid; please contact your ticket provider with any inquiries.
