Kreator To Re-Record "Endorama" And "Renewal"

German thrash legends Kreator have announced that the band will enter Fascination Street Studios in Sweden on April 4th to begin the re-recordings of the band's most pivotal and polarizing releases "Renewal" (originally released in 1992) and "Endorama" (originally released 1999). The new release - "Endorenewal" - is targeted for release this December via Nuclear Blast Records.

Guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza commented on the idea for the release: "Even after...what is it now - 23 years and 16 years - I still get backlash for these two pioneering releases. Its almost like both the fans at every show and the media in every interview want me to apologize for making them. So, I figured why not re-record them the way the fans want...with 'Renewal' less industrial and more thrashy melodic and 'Endorama' less melodic and more thrashy industrial."

"Endorenewal" will come as a standard 2CD, 4CD special edition (which contains the re-issue of the original two recordings) and digital download.

The track listing is:

CD 1:

1. Winter Martyrium
2. Renewal
3. Reflection
4. Brainseed
5. Karmic Wheel
6. Realitätskontrolle
7. Zero to None
8. Europe After the Rain
9. Depression Unrest
10. Du Hast (Rammstein Cover) More...

Iron Maiden Announces New Album, Tour Dates

With the prognosis Bruce Dickinson's fight with cancer pointing to recovery, U.K. legends Iron Maiden have confirmed the recent rumors about a new studio release by announcing the new album "The Point of Harsh Steel." The release is the first of a trilogy concept series centered around the lore of the Viking Gods. The album is set to drop on July 16th (G/A/S), July 17th (EU), July 20th (UK) and July 21st (North America) via EMI Records. "The Point of Harsh Steel" will be issued in the following formats: digital, standard CD, 2CD digipak (with bonus live material) and a 4CD media book (complete with the 2CD as well as two DVD/Blu ray discs containing two full live performances from the most recent "Maiden England" North American tour).

The new release was once again recorded at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas with bassist Steve Harris manning the production duties. Additional recording and mixing was performed at The Cave in Malibu, California with long time producer Kevin Shirley. The band once again commissioned Derrick Riggs for the album's artwork.

Bassist Steve Harris commented on the album: "During the period just after recording 'The Final Frontier,' we wanted to do something darker and sinister, something Iron Maiden has never done before. The idea for the trilogy was based, in part, on the incredible rise of interest in Norse mythology throughout the world spawning TV shows and documentaries, movies and the myriad of bands celebrating its history. I've always been intrigued with the mystery surrounding the Norse and was pretty devastated that Manowar nixed that multi-album concept idea they had years ago. So rather than just re-record old material, we decided we would do this in traditional Maiden style, but with a nod towards the current trend of the elaborate three album series."

The entire trilogy series has been fully recorded, with the dates for the next two releases expected in 2020 and 2028, respectfully. More details are expected soon.

The track list for "The Point of Harsh Steel" is:

1. Sinfiotli's Revenge
2. The Taciturn God
3. The Scarlet Spinner of Secret Thread
4. Misgard: Humankind's Misery
5. Serpent at the Roots
6. The Great Wisdom of Elder Edda
7. A Fire Rises From the South
8. Urda’s Sacred Well
9. Crucifixion, Self-Imposed
10. The Day Even Gods Will Die More...

Lamb Of God Fires Chris Adler

Lamb Of God just released an official statement on the band's Facebook site that they parted ways with long-time drummer Chris Adler, after rumours emerged that Adler will not only guest on Megadeth's new studio album, but will also stay as a permanent member of the thrash metal legend.

Explains frontman Randy Blythe:

"I've seen it coming over the last weeks and when I asked Chris about all the rumours, he just told me 'C'mon you would do it too, if you were in my position, right?'. So next thing I did was call Dave [Lombardo, former Slayer drummer] and ask him if he wants to step in. And guess what he said 'Yes, why not!' without any hesitation or pause of reflection!"
