Atlantis Chronicles today reveals second album "Barton's Odyssey," which follows previous release "Ten Miles Underwater." The cover art by Par Olofsson can be seen below, and Atlantis Chronicles comments:
"Thousands of years before the age of the Atlanteans, in the middle of the XXth century A.D., a spark was born in the depths of unprecedented abysmal turmoil.
"Guided by the royal voice of Atlas, a man witnessed the end of a cycle, and became the harbinger of a new era. As rogue waves crashed on the shores and engulfed the plains, as deep blue displaced all other colors from the face of the earth, as terra firma was being completely erased, the resurgence of a forgotten island embodied the promise of an age of salvation.
"It's time for you, heirs of this immemorial voyage, to plunge into the odyssey of Otis Barton, the creator of our new collective hymn."

Our favorite TV/movie/video game shred master Eric Calderone is at it again, this time posting a "Fallout Meets Metal" video, which can be seen below. Eric comments:
"So one of the shining moments of E3 for a lot of us was Fallout 4. The first one I played was Fallout 2 back in '98 I think it was and have been loving not just the game but the idea of it ever since.
"I went to FB to get some suggestions from you all and decided to give the Fallout 3 theme a shot along with some oldie tunes, 'Blue Moon' - I didnt base it off of the Sinatra version in the game, and 'Ain't That A Kick In The Head.' I wish I could have included all the oldies but I need Tony Bennett with me :)
"I also did my best to accent the game as much as I could. Thank you guys so much for everything! It means the world. BIG BIG ups for always rocking my casbah!"

Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Hansel and Gretel and A Christmas Carol. These are stories that we all know and in the case of metal fans, another story everyone knows is that of Metallica. However, since it’s the three hundredth edition of Sunday Old School (hooray for us,) we'll be marking the landmark with a look at one of metal’s biggest bands, even if we do all know the documented story by now. A band which has always been both revered and reviled but continued to do things their way throughout their illustrious career. A band known simply as, Metallica.
The group was the brain child of a young, Danish heavy metal fanatic named Lars Ulrich, who had gone as far as to travel to Europe to see his heroes, Diamond Head, eventually staying with the band for a month. Upon returning to the United States, where he had lived since his teenage years, he was determined to form his own band, inspired massively by the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, even name dropping groups from the movement such as Tygers of Pan Tang in his advertisement looking for like minded musicians, which answered by Leather Charm guitarists, James Hetfield and Hugh Tanner, though Metallica itself would not be formed until five months later, when the drummer asked Metal Blade Records founder Brian Slagel if his band could appear on their forthcoming, "Metal Massacre" compilation.
