Vallenfyre To Play Decibel Showcase

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Decibel Magazine will host two exclusive concerts on Saturday, October 18th in Brooklyn and Manhattan. The first show will take place at the Best Buy Theater with Amon Amarth, Sabaton, and Vallenfyre kicking off the party; afterwards, Skeletonwitch and Evoken will headline Saint Vitus Bar (with another very special guest soon to be announced).

This special event marks Vallenfyre's first stateside appearance. The band will be playing in support of recently released sophomore effort, "Splinters."

Best known as a founding member of U.K. Gothic metal band Paradise Lost, Greg Mackintosh transformed the anger and sadness ensuing the loss of his father into Vallenfyre's death/doom/crust debut, "A Fragile King" (2011). The follow-up "Splinters" dropped May 13th in North America via Century Media Records. More...

Sabaton Comments On Bonus Cover Tracks

For the upcoming new record "Heroes," Swedish heavy metal institution Sabaton now reveals the different track listings, including all the bonus tracks that will be available.

Among them are three cover versions of Metallica, Battle Beast, and Raubtier.

"Heroes" will be released on May 16th, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The band comments on the bonus tracks:

"METALLICA - ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls:' All of us are old fans of Metallica The choice of the song was difficult, but we all could agree on that one. As an addition, ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ was the first heavy metal song ever performed on a stage by Pär.

"BATTLE BEAST - ‘Out Of Control:' Battle Beast was our secret guest at our latest Sabatoncruise and we all enjoyed watching them perform their songs live. We thought we wanted to support young and upcoming bands and decided to do a cover of them.

"RAUBTIER - ‘En Hjältes Väg:' Raubtier are our brothers from the north of Sweden. We have played together countless times and in the past, and Thobbe used to be in this band. At a special concert in 2012 Joakim performed this song live together with Raubtier and it awoke the idea of doing a cover-version. Seeing to the song title it was also a natural choice for our latest album "Heroes.'"

The track listings will be as follows: More...
