The Rockstar Ramblings: Dirty Hair

Ireland's DIRTY DIAMONDS have released an EP titled 'Leaving Town', and have issued their first single from the album, “Let’s Get Loud.” Guitars ready? Check. Lead singer arms extended? Check. Wind blowing through your hair during the chorus? Check. Everything appears to be in order including the special effects budget at 2:47. Two questions: 1. Is the camouflage tee worn by the drummer considered bad ass? 2. Is the air guitar by the lead singer during the solo bad ass? ANSWERS: 1. Yes 2. No…

I missed this video (been out for a while) from FAMOUS UNDERGROUND. The video for the song “Necropolis” is from their self titled release. Love the movie theater setting and the song hits fast! The lead singer’s appearance looks like the result of Sebastian Bach and Vince Neil having a kid. Apparently he HAD to front a rock band (sort of like being born into a NASCAR family – not a lot of options). Not a huge fan of lyrics displayed throughout the video, but always appreciates a dirty theater and overall creepiness…

TYKETTO singer, Danny Vaughn joined BURNING KINGDOM and the result is the video for “Watching As It Burns.” The song will appear on their upcoming album, ‘Simplified.’ The video is VERY dramatic. The arms up and out in one motion – good move. “TURNING BACK ON YOU!” This video makes me feel good. The guitarist is straight out of the hair eighties and the darker haired guitarist could have just left a seventies porn set. The keyboard player is playing the shit out of the keys and the drummer pounds with his “O” face. At 1:57, the hair, I mean MY GOD, THE HAIR! What about the song? I have no idea, I am having way too god a time with the video. “WATCHING AS IT BURNS!” Here we go, at 2:40 here comes the fire, oh no, WATCH OUT! The hair is going to catch fire…

OvO To Release "Abisso" Album

Genre defying act OvO will release "Abisso" next month via Supernatural Cat and as the band enters its 13th year in existence. The following press release was issued about the album:

"Abisso opens a new artistic era for this duo, formed by Stefania Pedretti and Bruno Dorella. There's a renewed richness in their sound, brought to the forefront by their meticulous use of samples, drum machines, pads, field recordings and synths.

"Cor Cordium and previous offering, CroceVia were veritable points-of-no-return for their minimal rock structures with Dorella's half drum set and Pedretti's guitar and penetrating vocal gymnastics swirling into a distant realm of wonder. The new challenge is to go beyond those confines, using contemporary music tools to maintain their unparalleled creativity and eternal evolution.

"With the help of Giulio 'Ragno' Favero at the mixing desk, Giovanni Versari's mastering, and the friendly collaboration between Gnaw's Alan Dubin (OLD, Khanate) and Carla Bozulich's Evangelista, OvO have crossed into new territories of extreme artistry."

Today fans and adventurists can witness the sounds of "A Dream Within A Dream" in the player below. OvO will release "Abisso" on November 4th via Supernatual Cat. More...

"Formed in late 2012 with the aim of keeping the flame of the ancient black arts burning, Possession proceeded to record their first demo in August 2013 at Blackout Multimedia Studio in Brussels with Phorgath of Enthroned. What results is an absolutely overwhelming display of ancient blackthrashing mania - complete and total ultraviolence and demonic force, well versed in the unbending ways of the Old Gods but shot through with a hideousness and teeth-gnashing gnarliness that simply cannot be denied. Indeed, to succumb to this assault is His Best Deceit..."

Sandrider Posts "Gorgon" Track

Sandrider has teamed up with Invisible Oranges to stream the track "Gorgon" online, which can be heard below. The following press release was also issued about the band's new album:

"For sophomore album 'Godhead,' Sandrider once again enlisted producer/engineer Matt Bayles (Isis, Mastodon, The Sword, Tragedy) to helm the recording process. But things have changed since the creation of the band's debut. Specifically, Akimbo amicably broke up, putting Sandrider as a central musical focus for its members. The added attention, in addition to the four-year gestation period for the new material, has yielded an even more distilled and potent formula.

"Right from the get-go, the malevolent call-to-arms and 'We Will Rock You' kick-and-snare stomp of opening track 'Ruiner' let’s the listener know Godhead is geared towards ferocious hooks and unrepentant rock n’ roll worship. From there, 'Castle' trades off between the tightly wound rhythm section-propelled verses of Jesus Lizard and the single-coil bombasts of Drive Like Jehu, all while maintaining their signature bottom-end roar.

"Gorgon finds the band flexing their classic-rock chops through the filter of their beefed-up gear, much as Melvins did on Stoner Witch or Harvey Milk pulled off on The Pleaser. Title track 'Godhead' is their magnum opus, a dynamic 7-minute exploration of tension and release, with a throat-shredding payoff proving Weisnewski can hit notes that fellow melodic sludge bands like Baroness and Torche can only dream of. And unlike so many of their peers, Sandrider doesn’t relent in the latter half of their album. The straight-forward charge of 'Champions,' the shout-along chorus of 'Scalpel,' and the snarling swagger of 'Beast' help propel the album through the climactic finale of 'Traveler.'" More...

A Wanted Awakening Recruits New Vocalist

Massachusetts melodic deathcore 5-piece A Wanted Awakening today announces the addition of vocalist Trey Holton to the band. The band comments:

"Trey was formerly a member of The River Neva from Worcester, MA. Trey is an amazing vocalist with a tremendous stage presence and an unparalleled work ethic. We couldn’t be happier with his addition to the AWA family."

Holton himself also states: “I had the opportunity to play alongside AWA in other bands and to fill in for them for a short stint when their previous vocalist Rick was sick, so when we got together and jammed the first time it already felt like home to me. It is such an awesome feeling to become part of a group of individuals that you have so much respect for as people and as musicians.

"Both Rick and Caitlin are ridiculously talented and placed their own respective stamp on the music. I can only hope to equal what they have done and place my own imprint on the next wave of songs. Thank you to my brothers: Jason, John, Mat, and Dre, for welcoming me so graciously into the AWA family and I hope the fans will like what they see and hear from us in the future.”

Amulet Signs Worldwide Deal With Century Media

Heavy metal was founded in England and still lives in England. London's Amulet quickly gained attention in the underground scene with their demo "Cut The Crap" in 2011. The tape sold out fast as did the 7" version, which is just starting to become a collector's item. After supporting bands like Pagan Altar, Manilla Road and The Sword and playing festivals like Bloodstock (UK), Hell's Pleasure (Germany) and Muskelrock (Sweden), Century Media Records became very interested in Amulet. the label has signed the band to a worldwide deal to "spread the gospel of Heavy Metal." Expect Amulet's debut album to be released sometime in 2014. More information on the release is expected soon.

The band commented: "Amulet want to thank all those who have helped take the band to this point, especially the efforts put in from previous axe slingers and of course the mysterious Hangman. To our fans, thanks for storming the front rows and banging your heads. We are excited for the future, it's time to let Heavy Metal reign supreme!"

Amuelt formed in 2010. The group is comprised of friends who met at various shows over the years and realized that they all wanted to make the same powerful and honest music. Guitarist Heathen Steven and bassist Bill Dozer founded the band; they were soon joined by Dave Sherwood on drums and vocalist Jamie Elton, and then they were completed with the addition of lead guitarist Nippy Blackford.

Majesty Reveals "Banners High" Details

Lovers of pure and unadulterated metal had all reason to rejoice in spring of 2011 when disbanded German true steel legends Majesty finally returned. The comeback culminated in an unforgettable show that was taped and released on DVD (“Shake the Ground”) in October 2012.

The comeback album “Thunder Rider” was released by NoiseArt Records in January, but now another album from the band is on the way "Banners High" will see release this coming December 20th, 2013.

“Banners High” is also the first-ever concept album in the band's history and tells a fantasy story penned by Majesty singer Tarek "MS" Maghary himself. Tarek comments:

"We're very proud to release our first concept album. The story deals with oppressed people who march into battle to finally be free. We definitely didn't want to do one of those concept albums with silly, boring audiobook parts and thousands of intros. The story is being conveyed by ten heavy metal anthems which could easily stand alone too. Which is why you can simply listen to the album without delving into the concept too much. If you want to though, you'll experience an incredibly epic world where honor, friendship, self-sacrifice and love of freedom still mean something."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Judgment Of The Gods
2. We Want His Head
3. Banners High
4. Time For Revolution
5. United By Freedom
6. Pray For Thunder
7. Bloodshed And Steel
8. All We Want, All We Need
9. Take Me Home
10. On A Mountain High
11. The Day When The Battle Is Won

12. Banners High (Karaoke Version)

TNT will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the "Intuition" album with a tour. Harnell's statement reads:
"After much discussion and lots of soul searching I'm happy to officially announce that I'll be back behind the microphone with TNT. I'm very proud of all we accomplished over the years and proud to have written and recorded all those great songs with my brother from another mother, Ronni Le Tekro. Sometimes it's just time to give the fans what they're asking for. 2014 is the 25th anniversary of the successful Intuition album and we thought it would be a good time to get out and re-launch this little machine for you guys! Can't wait to see you all on tour!" More...
