Bloodstock Announces Art Exhibition

The work of JRR Tolkien has long been a favorite muse of rock and metal artists. This year's Bloodstock bands Megadeth, Amon Amarth, and Dimmu Borgir all have used Tolkien references in their work, along with many others (Nightwish, Gorgoroth and even the likes of Led Zeppelin to name but a few).

Now Bloodstock’s co-founder, fantasy artist Paul Raymond Gregory, is thrilled to bring the two themes together and launch a major art exhibition at Bloodstock this year.

Christened the Rock and Metal (RAM) Gallery, the exhibition is to be a permanent addition to the festival and will provide a showcase for a changing selection of rock-related art and memorabilia. Paul Raymond Gregory’s extensive body of work includes many famous album sleeves and monolithic pieces inspired by the writings of JRR Tolkien. Paul’s first ever album cover commission was in 1984 for Saxon’s "Crusader," so launching the RAM Gallery on the 30th anniversary of Paul’s artistic debut in the metal world is fitting indeed.

This year’s first showing will include all the original Bloodstock festival artwork, going right back to the first indoor event in 2001, plus a wide range of Paul’s album art including the sleeve of Saxon’s latest release "Sacrifice." Representing Paul’s Tolkien work, there will also be a large triptych inspired by The Silmarillion opus (from whence Marillion derived its name). The painting will be mounted in a bespoke hand-carved frame created by framer John Davis. Although John has framed much of Paul’s other work, the triptych features the first frame actually designed by Paul himself. In addition, Paul will be signing copies of his book "Beyond Time And Place," which showcases artwork from the breadth of his career.

The exhibition will also include a small selection of bespoke handmade guitars created by young artist/musician Cynosure who is working to re-define the guitar, not just as a functional instrument, but as a working, playable piece of art.

The current Bloodstock Festival 2014 lineup is shaping up as follows: More...

Bloodstock Adds More Bands To 2014 Lineup

The organizers of the Bloodstock Festival have checked in with the following update about confirming more bands for the 2014 edition:

"Things are hotting up at Bloodstock HQ and even more bands are unveiled for 2014!! Joining the main stage bill are the newly renamed, Entombed A.D. After having to change their name from just ‘Entombed’, LG Petrov and his fellow band members are once again ready to let the music do the talking after a year of internal struggles. They release the highly anticipated new album ‘Back to the Front’ on 4th August via Century Media and are eager to get back on the road.

"Getting the heads banging on the Sophie stage on Thursday are British trad metalheads Monument, and bringing their own brand of theatrical madness and extreme metal are former ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ winners, Gethika. Bringing an international flavour on Sunday are death/thrash metallers Krow, who hail all the way from Brazil. Fancy something a little different? Then check out 16-yr old blues star in the making Aaron Keylock, also performing on Sunday’s Sophie stage.

"Not content with that, Bloodstock can also reveal six killer bands for the Jagermeister stage! Grab a couple Jagerbombs and come headbang to Undersmile and King Creature on Friday, plus Massive Wagons and a special acoustic set from Orphaned Land on Saturday. If you’re still standing come Sunday, be sure to catch Rabid Bitch of the North and The Heretic Order."

The festival takes place from August 7th - 10th and full details are available at this location. The currently announced lineup is as follows: More...

Winterfylleth Posts Track From Folk Compilation

Season of Mist is proud to present a new track from the compilation "One And All, Together, For Home," which features international metal artists gathered by Drudkh mastermind Roman Sayenko and will be released on May 23rd (May 27th in North America).

Winterfylleth's anglicised version of the traditional Scottish song “The Three Ravens” is streaming below, courtesy of Terrorizer.com.

"The idea behind this compilation is a coming together of like-minded artists from all across Europe in an attempt to rediscover the history and traditions of their respective areas of origin; through the medium of traditional music", explains Winterfylleth main man Chris Naughton. “Given that Europe has a particularly strong folk heritage all the bands contributing to this release are drawn from a broad range of countries that make up the continent; each with their own unique musical style & traditions to explore. One way that folk music has endured throughout the world's turbulent history is by people coming together and sharing the stories, tales and folklore of old; re-creating the melodies in a way that is relevant to them in the now. This compilation brings together eight artists, who have a strong historical interest and a pre-existing link to the music of their respective homelands." More...

Drudkh Announces Split With Winterfylleth

The four-track release will include cover songs recorded by both bands, paying tribute to their early influences. Season of Mist comments:

"The split brings together two of Europe's leading black metal bands for the first time on one LP and represents two genre challenging bands drawing on their own influences and re-imagining songs that are important to them.

"Ukrainian poets Drudkh continue to pay homage to old, talented, but forgotten Slavic bands after 2010’s ‘Slavonic Chronicles,’ their previous cover EP.

"Those of you who don’t own a record player will still be able to listen to those songs, since the EP will also be released digitally. As for the CD format, a new compilation will also hit the stores on January 17th/21st.

"Entitled ‘Eastern Frontier in Flames’, it will include all Drudkh’s tracks from ‘Thousands of Moons Ago,' as well as the ‘Anti-Urban’ and ‘Slavonic Chronicles’ EPs, which have never been available separately on CD so far."

Winterfylleth Posts New Song Online

Today Pitchfork hosts the exclusive premiere of “The Fate of Souls After Death” from U.K. black metal horde Winterfylleth. Give the song a listen right here.

The track comes off the band’s forthcoming "The Threnody of Triumph" full-length, which was recorded in Wales with producer Chris Fielding (Primordial, Electric Wizard). The album is set to drop on September 25th, 2012. Comments guitarist/vocalist C. Naughton:

“’The Fate of Souls…’ is probably one of the darker songs we have written as a band. Its concept is self evident from its title in that it is about what happens to the soul after death and how the essence of a human is transported onwards. The song is a personal favorite and may be a bit of a curveball in terms of the usual Winterfylleth sound. The riffs are darker and more swirling, the vocals are probably the gruffest I have recorded and the vibe is quite off kilter and a little more progressive than some of our other material. I hope you enjoy it."

Adds Pitchfork: “About halfway through ‘The Fate of Souls After Death,’ a late-album highlight from The Threnody of Triumph… the band slows the black-metal pummel upon which the track has depended. The drums drop into a half-time march, and the guitars relax their harsh roar, riffs etching harmonies against a background wall of distortion. But don't coast into reverie quite yet: Winterfylleth break the séance with fury, panic screams, and united-in-rage guitars that clash with the blurred drums for a perfect, primal burnout. The antiphonal, fast-slow-fast structure is a familiar trick of so-called atmospheric black metal; Winterfylleth just work to ensure that the atmosphere is as damaged as possible.” More...

Winterfylleth Reveals New Album Details

Candlelight Records today confirms September 25th as the North American release date for "The Threnody of Triumph," the third full-length album from England ’s Winterfylleth. Recorded in Wales with producer Chris Fielding (Primordial, Electric Wizard), the album delivers ten new conceptual compositions from the black metal quartet.

It represents a continual progression of the band and is a document to our determination to push ourselves further than we have before. On this album we celebrate the lives of those ones lost by contrasting the darkness of loss with the joy of celebrating their memories through the medium of a Threnody; a deathly ode to the memory of ones lost.”
