Mayhem, the Norwegian pioneers responsible for invigorating a global scene alongside originators such as Venom, Celtic Frost & Bathory, formed in 1984, and with a long history of tragedy, intrigue and infamy have become truly revered legends of black metal, with a large part of their legacy established in the late 80’s & early 90’s, when guitarist Euronymous and bassist Necrobutcher welcomed Hellhammer on drums and Dead on vocals, to help shape a new era of darkness and Armageddon.

Suicidal Tendencies Reveals New Album Details

In the early 80’s when Suicidal Tendencies started, punk rock was not very welcoming to “new ideas”, especially from a new crew that were obviously not worried about fitting in.

But SxTx wasn’t there to be “accepted” and not only played their own STyle of Cyco Punk, but reinvented the DYI attitude to a level never seen before with their distinctive look and sound.
For 35 years ST hasn’t worried about what other bands or people were or weren’t doing. About what was cool or trendy at the time. They didn’t ask for permission, nor did they care who it offended. They did what they wanted, but most importantly for the right reason, cause it’s what they felt, not cause they wanted to be liked.

That didn’t make things easy. They were banned in L.A., Police riots and harassed by various "Authorities" and even the Secret Service got into the act, "dropping in" and paying singer Mike Muir a "visit". Soon after the PMRC got into the act. As would many others, but the music played on, and ST became the soundtrack to an army of Cyco’s Worldwide…to Punx, Thrashers, Metallers, Skaters, Surfers, Moto and other extreme athletes all found motivation in the ST sound to stand on their own and blaze their own trail.

Cyco Punk Lives on! There’s no time machine to go back (and thank goodness for that).
This will be a full on Cyco Punk record taken to a whole new level with the legendary drummer Dave Lombardo brutally beating the songs and sound that is made to get your Slam On!
Suicyco Mutha Fucka! You’ve been warned. More...

Korpiklaani Posts New Video Online

Finnish folk metal superstars Korpiklaani are due to release their new studio album Kulkija ("Wanderer"), on September 7th through Nuclear Blast. Today the band presents their 3rd single, a happier song compared to the previous songs entitled 'Henkselipoika'. To support the new track, Korpiklaani have recorded a nostalgic video with director Markku Kirves, who has previously worked with the band for their "Rauta," "Vodka" and "Tequila" music videos. You can check it out below,.

Jonne commented, "'Henkselipoika' pretty much wrote itself. The first thing to come to my head was the verse riff, on top of which the melody wrote itself. The song was a very easy piece to write and it was finished in one day. As far as I can remember, this was the first finished song for the new album Kulkija." More...

Moonspell Premieres New Live Video

A unique and solemn spell seems to shroud every spot as soon as Portuguese alchemists Moonspell enters the stage - and it was a very special evening indeed when the band played an exceptional show at the Campo Pequeno arena in their hometown Lissabon on February 4th, 2017. That inimitable bond between the gothic metal act and 4,000 of their fans in the sold-out venue is pure electricity, captured for all eternity on the massive Live DVD/Blu-Ray/3CD package Lisboa Under The Spell which will be released on August 17th via Napalm Records.

Watch "Herr Spiegelmann" from the upcoming release below.

The band on the video: "'Herr Spiegelmann', or Mr. Mirrorman, is a song inspired by the amazing book of Patrick Suskind, The Perfume. I guess everybody knows that book, if not shame on you. I wrote the lyrics to the "execution scene" where people start seeing on the tortured, beaten down man on the stake, everything wonderful they want to see. Like a mirror man, reflecting their fears and ambitions and most secret wishes. I really love this song and the visual part of it was specially designed for this show, with the laser gloves and the mirror jacket, in a tentative to convey the eerie and psychedelic atmosphere of the song. I hope you guys enjoy this advance from Lisboa Under the Spell, as it does reflect the struggle for an original and emotional cut of the songs, just like a Moonspell show should be, add magic."
