Sepultura To Host Special SepulQuarta Session

Next week there is a very special SepulQuarta scheduled! Sepultura are proud to welcome Carolina Castro (Sea Shepherd Brazil) and Mitch Anderson (Amazon Frontline) to next week’s Q&A which will focus on the ongoing environmental issues that we are facing as a planet. Also joining next week’s Q&A is Andre Trigueiro, a Brazilian journalist who specialises in ecologial and environmental issues.

Derrick Green comments: "In our next Sepulquarta, the first part of our live Q&A will be in English. Our guest will be Mitch Anderson, the founder and executive director of Amazon Frontlines and Carolina Castro, the president of Sea Shepherd Brazil. These two organisations are on a path to create awareness and fight for causes that benefit the well-being of indigenous tribes, wildlife, our oceans, and land so important to our planet. They are a credible source to know what’s going on and what solutions can be done to prevent our further decline."

Furthermore, Sepulquatra will be premiering the band’s new official music video for "Guardians Of Earth," the fourth single taken from the band’s latest album "Quadra."

Join the band this Wednesday September 16th at 8pm BST/3pm EST here

Ravage Releases New Music Video

Ravage, the heavy metal act from Boston which formed in the mid 90's, will release their new EP, The Worldwide Resistance, on November 2. The band have released a "socially distanced" music video for the song "Amazon Burning", which can be seen below.

Singer Al Ravage states: "This video was made to call attention to the problem of deforestation, especially in the rain forest, but just in the past few weeks we are tragically seeing these terrible fires on the West Coast that are destroying untold lives and businesses. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to all our friends who are forced to deal with these terrible circumstances and we hope measures will be taken to try to ensure this does not continue to be a growing problem in the future. We will be donating all proceeds from the digital sale of the single version of this to The Arbor Day Foundation." More...

Mors Principium Est Posts New Single Online

The Finnish melodeathers Mors Principium Est are back with their seventh album, short and snappy titled "Seven," but no less impressive and epic than its predecessors. It's a perfect continuation from where they left off with "Embers Of A Dying World" in 2017: Death Metal, which is almost progressive in its brutality, combined with sophisticated orchestrations that, used sparingly, never drown in bombast, and fuse with dramatic, melancholic melodies.

Today, the band has released a new song entitled, "Lost In A Starless Aeon," which you can check out below. More...

Orange Goblin Reschedules UK Tour

Legendary UK heavy metal four piece Orange Goblin have been forced to postpone their previously announced tour for December this year, until the same time period in 2021. In a move that will come as no surprise, the band have bowed to the inevitable and postponed their dates.

Vocalist Ben Ward explains the situation;

"It is with a very heavy heart that we have to concede defeat and announce that due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent venue restrictions, Orange Goblin are going to have to postpone our 25 Year Anniversary tour, scheduled for December 2020. We wanted to wait as long as possible to see whether we would be given the go ahead but with no clear indication that full capacity shows will be allowed by then we now have no choice but to reschedule for December 2021.

"The safety and well being of our fans, crew, venue staff and bandmates is always the most important issue for us so we hope that you understand our situation. The new dates are already in place and any tickets already purchased will still be valid for the shows in 2021. We are also happy to say that both support bands, Spirit Adrift and King Creature, are behind this decision and will be with us when we return in 2021. We have also added a couple of extra dates, one at The Booking Hall in Dover, which will be a warm-up show for the tour (No Spirit Adrift or King Creature for that one!) and a show at the Tivoli in Buckley too. As always, we thank you for your continued support.

"Stay safe and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2021."

The new tour dates are as follows: More...

Unearthing the Metal Underground: Video Nasties

Liverpool will forever be known in the realms of pop and rock by virtue of it being home of the Beatles. Fast Forward to 2020, a band by the name of Video Nasties may be drinking from the same water, but they’re as stylistically removed from the Fab Four as Mr. Rogers is from Howard Stern. The act pulled it’s name from the singular form, “video nasty,” an English colloquial term referring to low-budget horror and exploitation films. The moniker is apropos considering that the quintet’s debut full-length, “Dominion,” is a filthy and melodic slab of fun-loving but aggressive, horror-obsessed black ’n roll.

Video Nasties is comprised of alumni of such notable underground UK metal bands as SSS, Magpyes, Heresy of Thieves, The Bendal Interlude and Iron Witch. The English metal scene vets may have been around the block, but as a new entity, Video Nasties performs with the enthusiasm and vitality of a collection of passionate 18 year olds jamming in the garage. The form is thrashing blackened death, with a pinch of doom thrown in for good measure, but they perform with the spirit of a coarse punk band. Whether it’s the pummeling opener “Stay Gold” or the groovy, mid-paced burner “Drone Eagle," the gentlemen of Video Nasties unleash catchy metal that’s just as fun-loving as it is lethal and cut-throat. The synths and electronics augment the horror soundtrack qualities throughout, fleshing out the robust metal attack that’s helmed by charismatic frontman Damian Von Talbot. In short, Video Nasties is a compelling band that extreme music enthusiasts should keep an eye on.
