New Metal Tracks Headed To The Rock Band Network

It's a slow metal week for the Rock Band Network on the Xbox 360, with only a single new track titled "Discharge" being added by industrial act Intricate Unit, so you Xbox fans may want to load up some old favorites instead to rock out over the weekend.

On October 5th the PS3 sees more Evile, Amberian Dawn, and Asking Alexandria, while the Wii will get a dose of Skeletonwitch. The complete list of newly added Rock Band Network songs, including the non-metal tracks, is as follows:

Gama Bomb Comments On First US Tour

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have just wrapped up their "Graveyard Disturbance" headlining European tour, and are now gearing up for their first ever North American tour. The band will be kicking off the massive North American trek on October 22nd and will be teaming up with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE looks ahead to their first American tour:

"Touring in America is one of those things that every band, every musician or bedroom rockstar dreams about. Even bands from America don't get to tour America. We're lucky enough to get the chance and are really excited about it. If any tour we've ever undertaken can be described as a great adventure, this is it. It's going to be hard, but we're hard men. It's going to be girthy, but so are we. We'll wear the appropriate hats and drink the right liquors. You get the picture. More...

This has been the best European tour we've ever done and it's sharpening us up nicely for our stretch in the US. We're in Spain right now and urge any fans reading this to bring us some manchego and rioja." More...

EVILE vocalist and guitarist MATT DRAKE comments on the tour, "For the second time this year, Evile are proud to be able to say we're coming across the pond to play some more shows throughout America and Canada. Last time we were there for two months, this time we're staying for three, playing at loads of places we never went to last time, but also revisiting many places we played at with the mighty Overkill and Kreator earlier in the year. We just can't get enough of it!"

"This time we're joining up with Overkill, Forbidden, Early Man, Gama Bomb and Bonded By Blood for many different tours, also some headline shows of our own, so if you saw us play last time, make sure you come and see us again and bring everyone you know for some metal madness!" More...

Evile Begins Work On New Studio Album

British thrash metal outfit Evile has announced that they have begun work on their third studio album, which is expected to be released sometime next year through Earache Records. The album will be the first to feature bass player Joel Graham, the replacement for the band's original bassist Mike Alexander, who sadly passed away last year. A message from guitarist Ol Drake reads as follows:

"We're well on our way into writing the material for Evile's third album now. We've been playing around with the odd part and riffs since 'Infected Nations' came out in 2009. I have about ten song ideas which are being built on daily, but not going to stop there. We're not going to limit ourselves this time to a certain number of songs. We're just going to write until it's time to give up and go into pre-production. We've been sending tracks/recordings/ideas back and forth between ourselves, Russ Russell and our management (Wiseblood) and there's an excellent vibe going.

"I don't want this to be a typical 'new album' update using the same descriptions and words most bands use to big up an album, so I'll just say the new stuff is really getting my blood boiling and my heart racing. We've been through a lot over the past year, and it's being naturally reflected in the music which is coming out. I've never been as passionate as I am now about writing the best material we can. With Joel in the mix, and him being a die-hard thrash fan since the '80s, I'm looking forward to see how this will turn out. Keep an eye on our website for more details, and come catch us on one of the 77 shows in September-December in North America! (If you don't see me I'll be busy riffing for the benefit of your ears.)"

Mike Alexander Memorial Show Footage Available

In October 2009 Evile's bassist, Mike Alexander, passed away while on tour in Sweden at the age of 32. Two months after his death, in December 2009, Evile arranged two memorial shows (Leeds & London) to honor the memory of Mike and to raise money for his family. Below are videos of the entire covers set, including messages read out from Mike's family and Earache Records, at the Mike Alexander Memorial Show in London on December 8th, 2009.

Evile lead guitarist, Ol Drake, had the following to say: "The two nights we did in December meant so much to us all. It was our own way of saying goodbye to our friend, Mike. We attended his funeral with his family and friends, and it was a good ceremony, but we wanted something we know Mike would have loved; two nights of Metal. It was tough to get back on stage again without looking over and seeing him there, as that's what we'd all seen on stage for the past 10/11 years. I don't think people realize how long we all played together. We still miss Mike dearly and can't believe he's gone. Thank you to everyone involved in helping us make these nights happen, and thank you to everyone for coming and paying your respects. I hope you enjoy these videos!" More...

Tom Fischer Wins Golden God Award In London

Thomas G. Fischer (aka Tom G. Warrior,) the founder of the legendary metal bands Celtic Frost and Hellhammer, and most recently Triptykon, was honoured in London this week when he received the prestigious Golden God award for inspiration. The award was presented to him at the Indigo2/O2 Arena by Cathedral frontman Lee Dorrian. When accepting the award, Fischer stated:

"In my opinion, however, I don't deserve this award. It should instead go to Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Angel Witch, and Venom, artists who have inspired me and without whom I would not be here tonight."
