Hail Of Bullets Streaming New Single

Dutch death metal giants Hail of Bullets have launched the landing page for their new album "III The Rommel Chronicles."

Pre-orders are available here, and you can check out the first single "Pour Le Mérite" in the player below.

"III The Rommel Chronicles" began to take shape in the second half of 2012 when Hail of Bullets started writing songs for this third album, which sees the band approaching things a bit differently lyric wise. Metal Blade Records comments:

"Instead of describing a certain campaign or theatre of war, this album focuses on the military life and rise and fall of German field marshal Erwin Rommel. Despite fighting on the wrong side, Rommel was undeniably a great strategist who was both feared and admired by his enemies. Musically, 'III The Rommel Chronicles' recalls a bit of their debut album. The songs are faster, more raw, more aggressive and direct than on 'On Divine Winds' which had a more epic, heroic feel. Once again, production duties were handled by Ed Warby and the album was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö. A new lyrical approach also necessitated a different style of artwork, which was provided by Dutch artist Erik Wijnands."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Swoop Of The Falcon
2. Pour Le Mérite
3. DG-7
4. To The Last Breath Of Man And Beast
5. DAK
6. The Desert Fox
7. Tobruk
8. Farewell To Africa
9. The Final Front
10. Death Of A Field Marshal More...

Spider Rockets Shoots New Video

New Jersey's Spider Rockets will finally unveil a first official music video for the single "Going Down" this Friday the 13th.

"Going Down" is the follow-up to the group's first foray into the video arena, a combination of production and live clips for the anthem, "Scream." It was the first track recorded for the group's current release "Bitten."

"Going Down" has knocked out some national heavyweights on a number of cage-matches at active rock radio including Five Finger Death Punch, Pennywise and Hellyeah. "It's mind blowing that we could take on those guys and win! And win we did... Over and over it seemed," revels a stunned Helena Cos, the group's lead singer.

The video, produced by film graduate, Jason Nappi, was a zero-budget endeavor. Johnny Nap, the group's lead guitarist, admits, "it started with some real nice guys at an old warehouse in Jersey who let us in as a favor, and a bunch of offbeat common license footage that fit the theme of the song. We didn't want to take ourselves too seriously."

"We heard Van Halen shot 'Jump' for just $400!" sets up drummer, Dan Prestup, "...and we thought, we don't have that kind of money!" laughs bassist, Greg Manning.

Look out for "Going Down" on Friday the 13th of September. October tour dates from the band will also be released next week.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Intro

"The Underground Resistance."

"Receive" also features a rendition of "Looking For an Answer," originally by obscure Swedish 80's band, Universe. More...

Motorhead Comments On Upcoming Album

As was recently announced, Motorhead will release new album "Aftershock" on October 22nd on CD, vinyl, and digital formats, with pre-order info coming soon.

“Steal it if you must, buy it if you can!” says Lemmy, who’s pride in the album is so immense that guests to his home and dressing room in the last couple of months have been treated to extremely loud airings of the rough mixes, while Phil Campbell adds, “I really think the variation on the album shows that we’ve dug deep and produced some of our best work for a long time.”

“It is,” says Mikkey Dee, “a really, really strong Motorhead album, one that really does define everything this band stands for.”

The following press release was also issued about the coming album:

"Like the juggernaut you prayed would keep on crushing you, like the friend that still royally pisses off your parents and like a loyal standard of crunchy, greasy, punky, bluesy, gutsy screw-you rock’n’roll, Motorhead stride out through their 38th year brandishing more swagger and attitude then your ears could begin to comprehend.

"On October 22, 2013, Motorhead will deliver their 21st studio album, an enormous and prophetic Aftershock. Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, it is a true leveler, a crushing confirmation of everything Motorhead stands for, marching from the dust storm to deliver 14 belting statements which see Motorhead in perhaps their best writing form for years. There’s swagger, there’s punch, there’s speed and there’s dirty filthy grooves, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee showing clearly that Motorhead is not simply a band, it’s a genre!

Legions Of War To Release New Album

Inferno Records has issued the following announcement about releasing a new album from Swedish act Legions of War:

"We're really proud to announce you that Legions of War is Back To The Front! 4 years after the tremendous & merciless surprise attack entitled 'Towards Death' in 2009 which took no prisoner (and highly acclaimed by underground medias that compared the bands to such monsters as Destroyer 666 or Gospel of the Horns!) - and the self-released thunder assault 'Riding With The Blitz' (an EP with two new tracks in 2011) - Legion of War come out from a long retreat with a new arsenal to take the world by storm!

"9 new missiles made in the strongest steel with an incredibly precise strike force will soon be unleashed on Inferno Records under the name 'Forced To The Ground!'

"This new armada shows a more aggressive and still heavier side of Legions of War! Guitar riffs cut like scalpels, rythmics are like hammers coming down in a relentless manner, vocals are raw & scorched (but still very clear, no growls or grunts... or hysterical screams) and express all the atrocities of war like never before... The style is basically thrash with a very personal approach (the whole concept is about War, which means the sound is very cold) but has definitely a strong heavy metal influence... Guitar solos are the undeniable proof as well as some acoustic parts that will make your blood freeze!

"This new assault will be effective by the end of the year (release date is set for December 20th, 2013) under the forms of Digipack CD, regular jewel case-CD and cassette - and will for sure please all fans of bands like Destroyer 666, Kreator, and Sodom." More...
