Currently in the midst of the "20th Anniversary Farewell Tour," recently re-united Italian symphonic metal band Rhapsody is taking no time for a breather. Having performed sold-out shows in Mexico City, Bogotá, Santiago and Buenos Aires, the band has already announced a second Latin America tour leg, which will bring them (back) to Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Costa Rica, Columbia and Mexico in January 2018.

But the good news doesn’t end there; right after this second Latin America tour leg the band will return to Europe and play 23 shows in 11 different countries including U.K., Germany, Italy, France and many more!

Fabio Lione (vocals) comments: "After the incredible success of the Rhapsody reunion shows in Latin America the time has finally come for us to meet all of our European fans. Don't miss the upcoming shows for any reason as Luca, Dominique, Patrice, Alex and myself are ready to invest our heart and soul once again in this new great adventure, sharing some unique and wonderful emotions in the name of RHAPSODY's music."

Guitarist Luca Turilli continues: "We can not imagine a better ending for this amazing ‘Farewell Tour’ than playing in Europe for the final time after so many years. It will be pure magic and throughout each show we will present a memorable setlist full of legendary classics, some surprises and a few songs never played before. See you soon!"

Gemini collects my instrumental songs composed along my career, therefore I titled it Gemini which is my astrological sign. That's me and my music fully represented. Songs range from metal and symphonic metal to prog[ressive] including some New Age atmospheres. That's basically my vision of music, quite open and wide." More...

Supernaughty Signs Wtih Argonauta Records

Argonauta Records is excited to announce that Italian heavy rock act Supernaughty is now part of the roster.

Born in 2014 and formed by Filippo Del Bimbo, guitar (ex-Flora e Fauna, Korkovado, Bantoriak), Alessio Franceschi, drums (ex-Lisergica, Cora), Angelo Fagni, voice (ex-Gosh, Cora) and Andrea Burroni, bass (ex-Moss Garden, Zona Peep; now replaced by Luca Raffoni), the Supernaughty band name is a clear tribute, as assonance, to Black Sabbath’s "Supernaut."

After a recent and extensive live activity (also opening for High On Fire), the band is actually working with Matteo Barsacchi (Mr Bison) on the final touches to the debut full-length, to be released by early 2018.

What you can expect is a massive heavy rock with remarkable early grunge and stoner sonorities, with an exciting taste highly influenced by nineties stuff.

More information is expected soon. More...

Obscura Amentia Releases New Video Clip

Italian black metal studio-band Obscura Amentia issued a video clip for the title track of the latest album "The Art Of The Human Decadence," which was released earlier this year via Sliptrick Records.

The video clip tells about the journey of a single person and, at the same time, of the whole of mankind: a mental and physical evolution from innocence, purity and life (visually expressed through the use of light colors and lush nature) to corruption, artifice, doubt, and then in the end, death.

The new track represents a natural continuation of the previous work driving once again to massive sludge and doom territories. Density, crudeness, darkness and heaviness are the attributes that could define this new work.

Jupiterium Releases Lyric Video For "1984"

Iran is a country you mostly know for oil, Persian cats and carpets and recently, nuclear arguments. But don't be surprised to find out that heavy metal is alive in Iran and there are lots of active bands, one of them being Jupiterium. This is a new sci-fi melodic metal project formed by Mohsen 'Stargazer' Fayazi and Ehsan Imani.

Today, Jupiterium has launched a new lyric video for the new song "1984," which features guest appearances by Mark Jansen (Epica), Niklas Stålvind (Wolf, The Doomsday Kingdom) and Niclas Etelävuori (ex-Amorphis, Kyyria). The video can be seen below.

Niklas Stålvind commented: "The song has something to tell us, and I felt I really connected with it as soon as I heard it. Sadly, the lyrics are very valid these days. But hey, if you don't care about the deeper meaning, you can still enjoy the music and BANG YOUR HEAD to it!

"I hope that as many people as possible help out in spreading the song and support the guys behind it. Your support will mean more than you think. I feel honored to have a chance to help out with vocals for this song. Respect!" More...
