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...

Amon Amarth Reveals 2009 Touring Schedule

Amon Amarth has issued the following year end update and 2009 touring plans:

2008 has been one hell of a year for Amon Amarth. The year has been filled with one exciting event after another. We started the year with our first ever Australia/New Zealand tour - one more continent conquered. It was great to finally meet some of our Australian and New Zealand fans and experience an authentic Aussie barbie.

Our new album, Twilight of the Thunder God was a tremendous success. Not only debuting #48 on the US Billboard, #10 and #11 in Finland and Sweden as well as an amazing #6 in Germany! But also being part of the top 10 of many albums of the year lists. We had a very successful North American tour with Ensiferum, Belphegor and The Absence in early fall. We're looking forward to heading back across the ocean for another tour in 2009.

It's impossible to talk about 2008 without mentioning Unholy Alliance Tour Chapter III. It's been a great honor to share the stage with our heroes, Slayer. We ended the year with a bang. Bloodshed over Bochum was more successful than we expected. 4 sold out shows with fans coming from all corners of the world. 4 memorable nights and a hell of a way to spend New Years Eve surrounded by friends and fans, thank you all!
