Ghost Takes Home The Grammy

Looks like I called it: Ghost has taken home the Grammy award for this year's "best metal performance" category.

It's clear by the video below that the band was very out of place, with a perplexed crowd and an odd lack of applause, but that's probably to be expected considering the venue and how little emphasis gets placed on metal at this overblown awards show.

It's nice to see music of this variety breaking into the mainstream consciousness, although of course its odd that a band that's so tenuously connected to metal actually won the award.

Ghost's performance of "Cirice" from the "Meliora" album beat out the other nominees August Burns Red, Lamb Of God, Sevendust, and Slipknot.

Cloak And Dagger Releasing New EP

Perth’s Cloak And Dagger is excited to release a new track from forthcoming Imminence Records’ debut "Balance." Check out the title track below.

The six track EP also features a re-recorded version of the band’s “Stay Gold” single and is slated to be released this spring. Guitarist Oliver Royer comments:

“When we were finding the right producer for the record it was very important to us that we find the perfect fit for us as a band and as people. We considered a few options but at the end of the day only Matt at Templeman Audio and Simon at Forensic Audio Mastering could deliver exactly what we wanted.

"Most of the tracks had been finished in the months leading up to the studio so that we could really refine their sound and focus in on what was strong about them before entering the studio. Matt definitely had the experience and knowledge necessary to really make our ideas come to life and also bring his own ideas to the table.” More...

Child Bite Releasing "Negative Noise"

Detroit's favorite musical misfits Child Bite will unveil brand new full-length, "Negative Noise," this April 1st. Having released three full-lengths, as well as a gaggle of EPs and singles since the group's formation in late 2005, the prolific collective is now well into the second phase of bandhood.

What began as a thoughtful-yet-spazzy art rock band in a Detroit suburb has now fully mutated into an aggressive, dissonant blend of all things punk, hardcore, sludge, surf, prog rock, noise rock and metal; a truly unique voice in a sea of copycats.

"Negative Noise" is forty-seven-minute throbbing ball of energy filled with furious jabs and paranoia-fueled explosions. Produced by Philip H. Anselmo and featuring artwork by vocalist Shawn Knight, "Negative Noise" is a fully-realized vision, inside and out. The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Death Before Dementia
2. Paralytic Phantasm
3. Euphoria Saturation Point
4. Born A Hog
5. Video Blood
6. Apex Of Anxiety
7. Vermin Mentality
8. Beyond The Dirt
9. The Great Ego Flood
10. Into The Disease
11. Feed Me Septic Dreams
12. Heretic Generation More...

Death Fetishist Signs With Debemur Morti

Once again, the French label Debemur Morti Productions flirts dangerously with madness, this time joining forces with U.S. outfit Death Fetishist, a project from tireless composer Matron Thorn (the tortured and creative mind behind the beast Aevangelist).

There is little doubt that Matron Thorn is a twisted virtuoso of our time, his mind continuously bursting with sinister musical ideas. As expected, Death Fetishist is a new step in horror, a supreme devilish entity evolved from the deepest spheres of obscure death metal and the murky, poisonous atmospheres of harrowing black metal.

Whilst awaiting the release of a devastating first full-length offering in the upcoming months, you can initially taste the abomination by listening to "Lucifer Descending" below. More...

Morbid Saint Announces Vinyl Re-Issue

A masterpiece of raw and rabid, deadly thrashing madness is going to return as a stunning reissue on March 11th, 2016 via Century Media Records: Morbid Saint's "Spectrum of Death!"

Originally recorded as a demo in the late 80's and produced by Eric Greif (Acrophet, Viogression), the 1990 released album by the Wisconsin thrashers offers a vicious and intense mix of early Slayer, Kreator, and Dark Angel that has not lost any of its violent impact.

After a series of low-key reissues and shabby bootlegs, "Spectrum of Death" will now be released on digital form, double CD, and vinyl, visually orientating on the original design in a gatefold sleeve to house the extensive 8-page LP-sized booklet.

For this release, founding member Jay Visser (guitar) dug deep into his personal archive and excavated tons of rare photos, obscure logo designs, and flyers as well as telling the history of Morbid Saint in a detailed interview.

Whereas the "Spectrum of Death" album was specially mastered for vinyl, and hardly touched to preserve its original sound, all other tracks have been carefully restored and remastered by Patrick W. Engel / Temple Of Disharmony (Iced Earth, Grave, Massacra). Pre-orders are up now at this location. More...

Anubis Gate Launches New Crowd Funding Campaign

Anubis Gate has unleashed a Kickstarter campaign a numbered, limited edition 6-disc box set of the band's first 4 albums and a double disc of bonus material. Titled "Orbits," full details and info on helping to fund the release can be found here.

Originally released on the Spanish label Locomotive, these original four albums have been long out of print. After releasing the albums, Locomotive Music went into hiding, taking with them the rights and funds still owed the band. As a result, these albums became rarities, commanding high prices being sold secondhand online.

Now fans can finally own these albums again without paying insane prices. In fact, the price for the complete 6-disc set will be lower than what one copy of "Andromeda Unchained" has been listed for on eBay.

Included in the "Orbits" box set will be the albums "Purification," "A Perfect Forever," "Adromeda Unchained," and "The Detached," plus a double disc bonus set that will include rare and unreleased studio and live material.

In addition, there will be a 24-page booklet with a special track-by-track guide by the original band members who made these recordings. Each box set will be numbered, and a bundle option with an "Orbits" logo shirt will also be available. More...

Orden Ogan Releasing Box

German power metal force Orden Ogan follows the success of latest studio album "Ravenhead" with the band's first DVD release. But “The Book Of Ogan” is so much more than that... the package consists of 2 DVDs (running time 6 hours – including 2 full Live concerts, extensive band documentary, all music videos & numerous specials) and 2 CDs (“Best Of 2008 - 2015” and the self-released/demo “Testimonium a.d.” from 2004).

"The Book Of Ogan" comes as deluxe 2DVD/2CD box set (hardcover, separate trays for each disc, 40-pages booklet) and is a must for both longtime followers and new fans. The full track listing is available below. More...

Autumns Eyes Comments On Upcoming Album

A recently released Autumns Eyes single titled "Internal Arson" can be heard below, and band mastermind Dan Mitchell also comments on an upcoming album:

"The bitter cold of February has fallen upon my shoulders like an iceberg, and with it comes an abundance of creative ideas born out of isolation. Living in Connecticut has its highs and lows, and this time of year is typically when people start letting the doom and gloom take over their lives.

"Fortunately, I use it to my advantage, and feed my creative drive. Since its impossibly cold outside, currently sitting at around ten below zero, my basement studio has become my home away from, but inside, my home. To say a few ideas have been brewing would be an understatement, so I will try my best to consolidate this update for those that give more than two shits.

"First and foremost is the album 'Ending Life Slowly,' which is currently sitting in release date limbo due to production snags and speed-bumps. As with every album, everything is done by myself, so I don’t have the luxury of a team behind me helping move the process along smoothly. That's not to say I am in any way disappointed with this record, its just important for me not to rush things and make sure it sounds exactly how I want it to sound before sending it off into the twisted world.

"This freedom and creative control is something many artists strive for, and is much less stressful than having a record company breathing down my back. Often times those issues will compromise an albums quality, causing the artist to release a sub-par performance. So while it may not be convenient in a traditional sense, its definitely a workflow I respect and enjoy taking advantage of. More...

Canadian hardcore band Equalizer has issued this announcement online about deciding to call it a day:

"The time has come... We've decided that after 8 years as a band, it's time to close out. No bad blood, no major reasoning, it's just time that we end this thing in a positive way (releasing the new EP) and move on.

"Our initial release date for the new EP was planned for April but this will be postponed and changed to a release show and a final set for Equalizer, likely in late May or early June. We'll be announcing the date this week.

Our original members in Matt Gilmour, John Leonard, Jimmy Barry; Other members in Scott Bassarab, Chris Boerger, Jesse Houle, Mike Pantuso, Cass Carmanico, and Justin Pulfer. The band grew and progressed with each of you and regardless of member changes, we're always going to be family.

A Perfect Day Announces "The Deafening Silence"

Formed in 2011, A Perfect Day is the brainchild of Andrea Cantarelli (guitar player and co-founder of Italian heavy metal band Labyrinth) and includes drummer Alessandro Bissa (also of Labyrinth), singer Marco Baruffetti, and bass player Gigi Andreone (Odd Dimension).

Inspired by post-grunge, metal, and hard rock sounds, A Perfect Day is one of those bands in which melody plays a leading role, as well as class-A musicianship and classy arrangements. New album "The Deafening Silence" is coming March 18th, 2016.

The band released a debut album on Frontiers Records with talented musician Roberto Tiranti on vocals and bass. Roberto left the band in 2014, but he was replaced by Marco Baruffetti, who has been able to bring his many talents and a very positive vibe in the APD camp.

The group states: "We are extremely excited about the release of this new album. We worked very hard for more than two years, trying to keep intact the stylistic stamp that marked our debut album whilst evolving in multiple directions. The songs are in-your-face, the melodies are immediately able to capture the listener's attention and the extremely diverse sound will surely attract a wide and diverse audience." More...

Plebeian Grandstand Finishes New Album

French black metal band Plebeian Grandstand just finished third album "False Highs, True Lows," which was recorded and mixed by Amaury Sauvé at The Apiary Studio and mastered at New Alliance East. The record is due out this spring on Throatruiner Records (LP, CD) and Basement Apes Industries (CD). Throatruiner comments:

"Great bands inspire vocations, Plebeian Grandstand annihilate them. It’s hard not to laugh hysterically while listening to the band’s third album "False Highs, True Lows," which destroys any desire to play music that intense.

"Formed in Toulouse in 2005, the french quartet never ceased to feed its insatiable appetite for dissonance and bleakness, slowly morphing from their former noisy, metallic hardcore to what could be the ultimate blend of black metal, sludge and noise. On the heels of their acclaimed 2014 album 'Lowgazers' and after countless shows in North America, India and Europe that forged their new rhythmical section, the band returned to Amaury Sauvé’s The Apiary studio during December 2015 to prove that their previous body of work was just a ladder to something even more suffocating.

Ferium Reveals New Album

Israeli metal band Ferium has announced the upcoming release of new album "Behind the Black Eyes." The follow-up to 2014 debut album "Reflections" will be released on April 21st and pre-orders are being taken now at this location.

"Behind The Black Eyes" was produced and mixed by Elram Boxer and was mastered at The Panic Room by Thomas Plec Johanssen. The band discusses the sound and ideas behind the album:

"Aggression is the most important thing about metal in our opinion. It has been an important outlet for so many people, including ourselves. We write the music from the bottom of our souls. The creative minds behind Ferium have experienced deceit, unfaithfulness, heartbreak, betrayal, pain and loss, all of which creates a sonic portrayal of aggressiveness and frustration in an effort to solve all of life's struggles, and to turn them into positive and empowering experiences.

"With our lyrical concept revolving personal relationships, emphasizing a story from the protagonists point of view, our new album has a much more direct and cohesive approach than 'Reflections,' 'Behind the Black Eyes' is a concept album, which makes it much easier to imagine yourself being in the story through vocals that play a big role in creation of the atmosphere and the huge groove riffing. Eliran Kantor's (Testament, Atheist, Hatebreed) mesmerizingly brutal cover artwork gives the lyrical concept the image it deserves." More...

Valla Posts New Lyric Video

?Per Valla returns with a song today titled "Lorelei, The Shadows Found You Once Again" from his new project Valla. Check out the lyric video below.

As we heard from previous Valla tracks, Per Valla reveals his talent in mixing Scandinavian black metal with haunting atmospheric passages throughout. Per also comments on upcoming plans for the project:

"I have decided I will do live shows with Valla in the future. This I will do with myself on vocals and guitar (of course) and a drummer (session) simply because there HAS to be a drummer on the stage to provide the right energy and sound for the audience. In other words I will do what many bands are doing these days, use backing tracks for synth and bass... adding session musicians for all the instruments would kind of be like having dancers onstage just for the visual effect, wouldn't it?"

Sig:Ar:Tyr Releasing "Northen" Album

Sig:Ar:Tyr is pleased to announce the upcoming release of fourth full-length album, "Northen," on April 15th, 2016 via Hammerheart Records.

The first new music from Sig:Ar:Tyr since 2010’s "Godsaga" album, "Northen" blends epic pagan and viking metal atmospheres with a heavy metal heart, with nine powerful songs written to tell the tale of the Vikings' adventures in North America a thousand years ago.

Daemonskald describes the album’s theme: "Near the end of the Viking age, the Norse set out from Greenland to explore new lands to the West, now understood as the east coast of Canada, including Baffin Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and possibly even further inland to New Brunswick and the northeastern United States. Unlike the permanent settlements in Greenland, their stay here was short-lived, and we are still discovering the extent of their travels, the artifacts from their small settlements, and unfolding the tales of their interaction with the native cultures here at the time.

"This is a tale of tribute to this small group of adventurers, who with a dynamic and individualistic spirit, were willing to throw stability and comfort aside to explore mysterious new places like Helluland, Markland, and Vinland, and be their own master in a changing world. A world where their old ways and traditions were fading, a world where sons turned away from their father’s faith, and where some rediscovered the path of the Northen…” More...

Regarding "Darkness," the band comments: "Is the apocalypse necessarily a bad thing? The structures of our youth are disintegrating, and the truths we took for granted have been left to decay. In the light of the imminent collapse, why not celebrate change with a thunderous explosion? Isn't the end of all things the most beautiful sight to behold?

Elm Street Unveils Killer Metal Cover Artwork

Elm Street's new album "Knock 'Em Out...With A Metal Fist" is coming June 25th via Massacre Records and features some truly amazing artwork by Ken Kelly.

The album was recorded, mixed & mastered by Ermin Hamidovic at Systematic Productions. Elm Street's Ben Batres comments:

"We have had the privilege of working with some of the world's best and Ken Kelly is right at the top of the list when it comes to art. It is very surreal that the band now joins a client list that includes KISS, Manowar, Rainbow and Ace Frehley.

"The concept of overcoming adversity is a theme that runs throughout the whole album. Not just in one aspect of life but in many that we have gone through ourselves and I'm sure that many will relate to.

"Ken created a piece which visually relates to each song from the new album and at the same time reflects the style you expect to hear when you see an album cover like this. Merging both the art and sound will hopefully deliver a classic album to both old and new fans." More...
