Trivium, In Flames, Opeth Metal Hammer Nominees

The nominations for the fourth annual Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards — which this year takes place on Monday, June 12 at Koko in Camden, North London — were recently announced. In keeping with the "Valhalla" theme of this year's awards, Metal Hammer magazine have teamed up with the crew of the "Hammer of the Gods", an authentic full-size replica Viking longboat, to launch both the awards on June 12 and the team's cross channel row, which takes place on the weekend of June 3 to raise money for charity Task Brazil.

Leading the field for nominations are longstanding rock and metal purveyors Roadrunner Records, with a staggering total of 14 nominations for the label that is home to acts as diverse as SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD and award-nominated DRAGONFORCE. Coming in a very close second for overall nominations is major label powerhouse Warner Music with an impressive 11 awards for their roster of breakthrough U.S. rock bands MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE and AVENGED SEVENFOLD (a favourite of Radio 1's Jo Whiley), as well as Valley boys FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND and Finnish rockers H.I.M. In a complete whitewash of the category, Warner Music have secured four of the five nominations in the "Best Video" category, with the fifth and final nomination going to Roadrunner.

Going head-to-head with a joint total of four nominations are Sony and Universal, while EMI have secured two nominations for metal stalwarts and British institution IRON MAIDEN. Coming on strong is independent challenger to the rock throne Visible Noise marginally trails Sony and Universal with three nominations including "Best UK Band" and "Album of the Year", both for BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. U.S. alternative rockers COHEED & CAMBRIA have surprised many with 3 nominations including appearances in the prestigious "Best Album" and "Best International Band" categories.

The full nominations list for the fourth annual Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2006 is as follows: More...

Mastodon Near Completion On "Blood Mountain"

Mastodon are nearing the completion of the recording of their new conceptual album "Blood Mountain" with producer Matt Bayles (Norma Jean, Isis) and will begin mixing it with Rich Costey (Audioslave, My Chemical Romance) in the coming weeks. Tentative track titles for the album, which is expected out through Warner in August, are as follows:

"Circle Of Cysquatch"
"Hunters Of The Sky"
"The Sleeping Giant"
"Bladecatcher"
"The Colony Of Birchmen"
"Pendulous Skin"
"The Siberian Divide"
"Capillarian Crest"
"Hand Of Stone"
"Crystal Skull"
"The Wolf Is Loose"
"This Mortal Soil"

With Blood Mountain, which has taken more than two months to record, Dailor said he's hoping his band and others like it can accomplish something huge: to rattle complacent rock fans who might not grasp what Mastodon have been trying to do since forming in 1999.

"I hope we can start a prog revolution, because the timing's right," he said. "You've got a Tool record that's coming out, an Isis record that's coming out, a Mars Volta record that's coming out, a Mastodon record that's coming out, and I hope that converges into something really awesome for music where it doesn't become pop, but there's a little more sharing of the pie. It would be cool if you had kids in their bedrooms not trying to learn Linkin Park songs, but they're trying to learn Mastodon songs. It's cool music that's honest and from the heart, and it's technically challenging."

Based on Dailor's description, Blood Mountain's going to follow in Leviathan's heady footsteps. While Leviathan focused on dystopian author Herman Melville's opus "Moby Dick," the new album will revolve around an unnamed citizen's ascension to the apex of a snowcapped mountain.

"It's about climbing up a mountain and the different things that can happen to you when you're stranded on a mountain, in the woods, and you're lost," the drummer said. "You're starving, and hallucinating, running into strange creatures. You're being hunted. It's about that whole struggle."

Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala will make a guest appearance on the track "The Siberian Divide", while guest appearances from Scott Kelly of Neurosis and Ikey Owens of Mars Volta fame are also expected to appear on the album as well.

We chose to book most of the tour's shows at indoor venues, as that allows the bands and the fans amenities like air conditioning and indoor bathrooms, as well as the very best stage lighting, production, and sound and less expensive concession prices. The few shows that will be played outside will be played at night in permanent facilities with our lighting, production, and so on. Everyone wins."

First Unholy Alliance 2006 Tour Dates and More

The fury surrounding Slayer's upcoming album and recently announced "The Unholy Alliance Tour - Preaching to the Perverted" has not died down and new information is still being revealed piece by piece.

The four original members of SLAYER ­ Tom Araya/bass, vocals, Kerry King/guitars, Jeff Hanneman/guitars, and Dave Lombardo/drums - the pioneers and undisputed kings of extreme speed/thrash metal, have entered a Los Angeles-area studio to record what will be their first new studio album since 1990's "Seasons In The Abyss." Rick Rubin, who helped solidify the much-emulated Slayer sound beginning with their genre-defining 1986 classic "Reign In Blood," has taken the helm as executive producer of the project.

Working closely with Rubin will be Josh Abraham (Korn, Velvet Revolver, Atreyu) who will produce the album. "We're real happy to have Josh on the team," said Slayer's Jeff Hanneman. "He's a very creative and intuitive guy, he knows music, and he really gets who Slayer is and what we're doing." The as yet untitled album will be released on Slayer's long-time label, Rubin's American Recordings/Warner Bros. Records, and is expected out this fall. As previously reported, The new album is expected to feature 11 songs, one of which will carry the title of "Cult".

"Dave's been back with us, playing live, for a couple of years now, and we're all looking forward to recording together again," said the band's Tom Araya. Kerry King added, "There really is no one like Dave ­ he doesn't have to work at what he does, he just walks in, picks up his sticks and goes."

Said Lombardo, "It feels really good being back with the same guys I started out with. The chemistry is definitely there, that's the exciting part of it, to capture that chemistry again. And that's what is happening."

Jeff, Tom and Kerry have been writing songs for this new album since they wrapped their last North American tour in September 2004. "This is probably the most prepared we've been to record an album since the 80s," King added. "We've been writing and cutting demos for months." While these may change, working titles for some of the songs that will be recorded include "Catalyst," "Cult," "Supremist," and "Consfearacy." "I like to write songs that have different meanings for different people," said King, "where everyone can say, ŒI know what he means,' but still get their own sense of what the song is about."

Finally, on 6.6.06 (a date already snatched up by for numerous death metal releases, most notably Deicide's) in San Diego, CA, Slayer will kick off a seven-week summer trek, "The Unholy Alliance Tour ­ Preaching to the Perverted," that boasts what has got to be the genre's coolest line-up of the summer ­ Lamb of God, Mastodon and Children of Bodom (who will rotate the second and third slots), and Thine Eyes Bleed who will open the shows. Not only is the line-up terrific, but ticket prices will reportedly not exceed $39.00, giving fans a great value for their dollar.

According to Slayer's long-time manager Rick Sales, "We want to make 'The Unholy Alliance' tour an annual global event, so we decided to be smart about the design from the beginning. We chose to book most of the tour's shows at indoor venues, as that allows the bands and the fans amenities like air conditioning and indoor bathrooms, as well as the very best stage lighting, production, and sound and less expensive concession prices. The few shows that will be played outside will be played at night in permanent facilities with our lighting, production, and so on. Everyone wins."

With more dates and details to be added, the confirmed dates so far for "The Unholy Alliance Tour ­ Preaching to the Perverted" are as follows:

June 6 - Sports Arena, San Diego, CA
June 7 - The Orleans, Las Vegas, NV
June 12 - Pop's Outside, St. Louis, MO
June 13 - Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, IL
June 15 - Tweeter Center, Camden, NJ

More Slayer News, Hitting Road On Unholy Alliance

It was too good to be true. Contrary to previous speculation, SLAYER will be hitting the road with LAMB OF GOD, MASTODON, CHILDREN OF BODOM, and THINE EYES BLEED for the Unholy Alliance Tour. The following is from an MTV.com article:

"Dubbed the Unholy Alliance Tour, the trek will make stops in most major cities, although the actual routing of the run is still being fleshed out. Either way King's anxious to hit the road again.

"It's been 18 months since we've toured in the States," he explained. "People are going to be chomping at the bit to see us again. Our initial thought [with Unholy Alliance] was to go up against Ozzfest, because I think that tour's getting a little bit tired and I think people are tired of going out and getting sunburned for hours every summer. Every place we play is going to be indoors, with a good-sized lineup. We're certainly not going to try to make Ozzfest go away. We're just trying to offer an alternative."

According to Rick Sales, SLAYER's manager of 18 years, the idea's to make the Unholy Alliance Tour an annual event "with the best bands out there." During the fall of 2004, SLAYER, SLIPKNOT, MASTODON and HATEBREED toured Europe under the Unholy Alliance tag. Sales also wants to take the tour global and said following its U.S. run, the Alliance will return to Europe, followed by stints in Japan and Australia — although, he noted the lineups would be different on each leg.

"I think we're in a different spot than Ozzfest," Sales continued. "This is more extreme and it's not involving any sort of 'radio bands.' It's a no-compromise lineup, the best of the breed. We think this is a great live event and that the tour will become bigger than the lineup. I think Ozzfest has proven that."

SLAYER, who Sales said declined an Ozzfest 2006 invite, will deliver an hour-plus set to close out each night of the Unholy Alliance; THINE EYES BLEED will open on all dates, followed by BODOM and MASTODON (who'll be rotating slots) and then LAMB OF GOD. King said SLAYER will debut some new material from the stage.

On Tuesday SLAYER entered a Los Angeles studio, where they started recording the 11 songs that'll comprise their yet-untitled album. Rick Rubin (JAY-Z, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) will executive-produce the disc, while Josh Abraham (VELVET REVOLVER, STAIND) will turn the knobs. One of the songs has an official title ("Cult"), but all of them, King promised, will be devastatingly grim.

"There are definitely things you can't write about in SLAYER, and there are definitely things people expect you to write about," he said. "Everybody expects war, Satanism or anti-religious stuff — and this record's chock-full of that."

The LP, which the band hopes to finish in time for a late June release, will be the first to feature original drummer Dave Lombardo in more than 15 years. Their last outing together was 1990's Seasons in the Abyss.

"[Drummer] Paul [Bostaph], who we did God Hates Us All with, kind of had an elbow problem, and now he's with EXODUS," King said. "When Paul left us ... it was brought to our attention that Dave was available. And we figured if anybody should be doing this, it should be him."

Most of the 11 songs SLAYER will record were written more than two years ago, the guitarist said. "We're hoping to do it old-school and record everything in like four weeks," he added. "We're ready. This is probably the most ready we've been since Seasons. We've been spinning our wheels in rehearsals, just waiting for the green light on this thing. Now that we've got it, we're ready to go.

"It's definitely going to be a riff-fest," King continued. "There's riffs all over the place. As much time as we've had to work on it, there better be riffs on it. I think anybody who likes SLAYER, musically, is going to love it."

While Sales said SLAYER's studio LP probably won't be in stores by June 6, he says the band will release a digital download, EP or something else to coincide with the tour launch.

On Saturday, MTV2's "Headbangers Ball" will feature an exclusive interview with bassist Tom Araya regarding the forthcoming album and the Unholy Alliance run."

MTV2 Headbangers Ball: The Revenge Details

MTV2 and Roadrunner Records have announced the release of the third installment in the successful series – MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL: THE REVENGE. The low priced, double-disc is due in stores on April 11, 2006.

On the heels of the Gold certification of the first installment, MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 1 and the success with MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 2, MTV2 and Roadrunner Records once again set out to gather the very best in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The result is more than 2 1/2 hours of music on 2 CDs: disc one represents the strongest tracks from today's biggest rock bands, and disc two brings together the strongest up-and-comers from the underground rock scene.

In addition to the genre-defining anthems that represent the best of the show, there are enough rare and unreleased tracks to satisfy tastemaker metal fans as well. Packed with a total of 38 hard-charging tracks, this collection has 7 exclusive offerings. They include the Terry Date mix of Slipknot's "Before I Forget", and the live recording of Killswitch Engage's "A Bid Farewell", which both see their first CD release on this compilation. Other exclusives are brand new tracks from Hatebreed and Walls Of Jericho, both of which were written especially for this release (Hatebreed's lead vocalist, Jamey Jasta, is the host of the Headbangers Ball program on MTV2). A video for the Hatebreed track, entitled "To The Threshold", will air on video channels in March. A side project of Jasta's, Kingdom of Sorrow (which also includes members of Down, Crowbar and Seemless), also throws a brand new track into the ring. The compilation beat Dragonforce and 36 Crazyfists' record releases to the punch with fresh new tracks from these up-and-comers.

Mastodon Complete Video For "Seabeast"

Mastodon have completed work on the third music video from their award-winning album, Leviathan. The video, for the song "Seabeast", was shot on location at the historic Madison Theater in the band's hometown of Atlanta, GA. "Seabeast" was produced and directed by Jonathan Rej (Man Or Astroman, Further Seems Forever, Stretch Armstrong) and Tom Bingham for Authority Films who also shot the band's video for "Blood and Thunder." The video for "Seabeast" dictates the great battle between Ahab, Mr. Queequeg, pride and creatures of the sea.

Mastodon's "Seabeast" video was shot with a hand cranked 35 mm camera employing many of the film making techniques of the 20's and 30's. Director Rej comments: "The Madison Theater was the perfect location to shoot such a video as it was open in 1927 as a silent movie theater and was the first theater in Atlanta to show "talkies." This is the first time the theater has been used in almost 30 years." Photos taken by Ryan Russell during the shoot are available at this location. "Seabeast" is expected to make its world network premiere(s) imminently, stayed tuned to your favorite music video provider.

Mastodon Set Tentative Title For New Album

According to the new issue of Resound magazine (the free magazine/mail-order catalog of Relapse Records), MASTODON have set "Blood Mountain" as the tentative title of the follow-up to 2004's "Leviathan", due next summer via Warner Bros.

"We want the whole thing to flow together as one big piece of music, where the end of one song links up with the beginning of the next one," MASTODON drummer Brann Dailor recently told Revolver magazine. "We want the whole experience to be like movements in a symphony."

MASTODON started writing new riffs shortly after completing "Leviathan" and came up with a batch of ideas during various tours. But it was during last summer's Ozzfest that they made their greatest creative progress. "You can't really control when the ideas come," said Dailor. "I always have a dictaphone handy, and [singer] Brent [Hines] and [guitarist] Bill [Kelliher] bring acoustic guitars everywhere, and if they come up with something messing around, we'll record it. We always keep our minds open."

By the time MASTODON started rehearsals in mid-October, they had around 10 songs to evaluate and explore. While it's too early to know exactly what the band's next album will sound like, Dailor says it will likely be more progressive and thrashier. "We've been listening to a lot of newer KING CRIMSON and getting off on that," he explained. "But also, we toured with SLAYER and listened to them every night for three months, and that's gotta have some sort of effect."

VH1 To Air 'Definitive History' Of Heavy Metal

VH1 has announced plans to launch "VH1 Rock Docs", an all-new slate of high-end feature-length programs in 2006. Each of the docs will reveal an untold story in the history of rock and hip-hop music, combining never-before-seen footage with a unique and unconventional narrative approach. The documentaries will tell some of the most unique stories of the artists and music from a wide range of genres, styles, and musical perspectives. The "VH1 Rock Docs" slated for premiere in 2006 include a four-hour definitive history of heavy metal, "The U.S. vs. John Lennon", "The Last Days of Lisa Lopes" and "DMC: The Real Me". Additional documentaries will be announced shortly. A brief synopsis of the heavy metal documentary reads as follows:

"What Ken Burns did for jazz, VH1 does for heavy metal — only a lot louder. This four-part documentary traces the evolution of heavy metal music and culture from BLACK SABBATH to WHITE ZOMBIE, from LED ZEP to DEF LEP, from MOTÖRHEAD to MASTODON. In the same vein as VH1's critically acclaimed 2004 hip-hop chronicle, 'And You Don't Stop', this documentary series will use interviews, verite moments and vintage footage to bring metal's history to life, told from the perspective of the musicians, promoters, writers and fans who have kept metal's flame alive for four decades."

Ozzfest 2005 Comes To an End in West Palm Beach

Well it was one hell of a tour, the 10th annual Ozzfest Summer Amphitheatre Tour came to an end once again in West Palm Beach, FL and I had a chance to be there. For 6 years now I have been planning on going to Ozzfest but for some reason something has always came up and I couldn't go. Last year I had everything lined up to go, and a damn hurricane hit the place. This year I finally lucked out and went to my first Ozzfest. Let me tell you "I have waited for this for a very long time." I loaded up the Tahoe with a couple friends and my wife and we left about 2:00am Saturday morning and drove about 9 1/2 hours from Charleston to West Palm Beach, FL. That was a long drive, I probably should have gone to the one in Charlotte, NC the night before but......."The best one is the last one" that's what I have always been told. More...
