Madball Tears Apart The Croft In Bristol

When going through the list of legends in the Hardcore genre, several bands immediately come to mind. Bad Brains, Black Flag, Agnostic Front and Sick Of It All are just a few that are instantly mentioned, but half the time, people forget to mention Madball, the band formed twenty years ago by Agnostic Front singer Roger Miret and his younger brother Freddy Cricien. To be honest, there is absolutely no reason to forget Madball. They have written some of the best songs in their genre and bring a huge amount of intensity and energy with them wherever they go. So getting to see the legends live for the first time was not only alot of fun, but a real treat.

The band took to the stage at The Croft in Bristol and opened with the classic song, "Set It Off." As soon as the band started playing, the crowd exploded. Moshing, stage diving, pogoing and singing along to almost every word, a great atmosphere to have. Madball continued to perform with an unrivaled passion and drive, playing some of their more recent (and equally outstanding songs) such as "Heavenhell" and "Infiltrate The System" and every single person in the crowd loved every second of it. So did the band and they thanked the audience numerous times throughout the night for the support, Cricien held the mic out for members of the audience to sing along and engaged in the Great British dialect by calling someone a "fucking wanker." They finished with the song, "Pride" from the 1996 album, "Demonstrating My Style," to a great response. As I said before, this was my first Madball show and it certainly won't be my last!

Hatebreed Reveals Covers Album, New Guitarist

HATEBREED has revealed the release date and tracklisting of their new covers album, "For The Lions." The album is set for release on Tuesday, May 5th, 2009 via E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records). This new release is the follow-up to the band’s #1 Billboard charting DVD, LIVE DOMINANCE (released September of 2008).

The songs on "For The Lions" were carefully selected by HATEBREED to represent a panoramic view of some of their favorite artists and greatest musical inspirations. Having completed the album in 2008, the band felt their work wasn’t done yet and just returned to the studio with original guitar player Wayne Lozinak to record additional tracks for the album. The four new covers are among the most bludgeoning the band has yet to record. These include, “Ghosts Of War” (Slayer), “Supertouch/Shitfit (Bad Brains), “Thirsty” (Black Flag) and “Suicidal Maniac” (Suicidal Tendencies).

FOR THE LIONS was produced, engineered and mixed by long-time band associate Chris "Zeuss" Harris.

You can preview of “Suicidal Maniac” on the band's MySpace page.

In additional HATEBREED news, the band announced the departure of guitar player Sean M. Martin, welcoming back to the fold original guitarist Wayne Lozinak.

Front man Jamey Jasta says, “I speak on behalf of all of us and we support Sean's decision to leave and want him to be happy and successful at everything he does. There are no bad feelings at all and you'll probably see him hanging on stage at some of our local shows. We're family and he will be missed but HATEBREED will forge on.” More...

"So I'm sure if you follow the band that you see we've had some line-up changes again. Buske leaving the band and David Wood stepping in on bass is semi old news but still news. David is a perfect fit for us. We wanted someone with youth and energy and we got exactly what we asked for. Buske has still been helping out the band however he can and was even spotted in the pit at our show in NYC for 'Betrayer' I believe. More...

Warbringer Issues Wacken, Sworn Enemy Tour Update

Warbringer has issued the following update from Wacken Open Air and the start of their European tour with Sworn Enemy:

"Thanks for everyone who saw us on the Metal Hammer stage at WACKEN! There is nothing compared to hearing thousands of thrashers screaming "Total War!" louder than your own stage monitors. We loved the energy and can't wait for the next opportunity to slay the masses.

"The beginning of the Sworn Enemy tour has been quite a pleasure. Last night we opened for AGNOSTIC FRONT and tonight were playing in Frankfurt with MADBALL! Theres nothing better than kicking off a tour by sharing the stage and some drinks with such legendary bands. Thanks for everyone that came out to see us in hamburg, we hope more of you guys will come out and support us along the way!"
