Lovebites New Album International Release Date

All female Japanese power metal outfit Lovebites has revealed that they have signed a deal with Arising Empire, who will be releasing their sophomore full length album, "Clockwork Immortality" worldwide on December 7th, two days after the record hits Japanese stores.

The band consists of Asami (vocals), Miho (bass), Haruna (drums), Midori (guitars) and Miyako (guitars/keyboard). The Lovebites sound owes a debt to the many great overseas heavy metal bands that have directly influenced their writing. Coupled with their own unique take on music, taking a piece from each member’s eclectic background and experiences, everything has culminated into forging a truly formidable group.

Following a superb performance at this year's Bloodstock Open Air festival, where they were moved to the mainstage at the last minute, the band will be embarking on their first headlining tour of Europe.

The tour dates are as follows:

13 – Haarlem, Netherlands – Patronaat
14 – Essen, Germany – Zeche Carl
16 – Hamburg, Germany – Logo
19 – Aschaffenburg, Germany – Colos-Saal
20 – Paris, France – Nouveau Casino
21 – London, UK – O2 Academy Islington

Sonata Arctica Begins Recording New Album

It's been very silent in the camp of Finnish melodic metal titans Sonata Arctica recently. But this break hasn't been wasted - the band have entered the studio to kick off the recording process for their tenth studio album, due in 2019 through Nuclear Blast. But before their new record will see the light of day, Sonata Arctica are pleased to announce that they will embark on a special journey; their very first acoustic tour outside of Finland! The run will take them to London's Islington Assembly Hall on 19th March 2019, as part of a larger European run. Support will be provided by special guests, Los Angeles CA based metallers Witherfall. Further details can be found below.

Keyboardist Henrik "Henkka" Klingenberg comments, "We've been locked up in the studio since the end of the summer working on our next studio album and decided we needed to take a break and go out and play some shows. In the summer of 2016 we did an acoustic summer tour in Finland which was a lot of fun for both us and our fans; in fact it was so great that we wanted to do it again and this time we're not settling for just Finland - but taking this show all around Europe for the first time ever. Now is a unique chance to hear our music in a completely different setting and we're sure these evenings will be something really special. Our set will also include some stuff we've never played live before, and who knows maybe even a new song from the upcoming album. See you at the shows!" More...

Greenleaf Posts New Lyric Video Online

Greenleaf give a second glimpse of how the rivers sound by revealing “The Rivers Lullaby”. Today the Swedes illustrate the floating stoner groover with a lyric video that underlines the song's essence in the typical GREENLEAF way.

"It’s just three days left until the world can finally Hear The Rivers on November 9th! Save the date and be one of the first to listen to this massive piece of art!"

The band on the new video and their plans for the next weeks:

"We feel very happy with the lyric video for "The Rivers Lullaby". It captures the mood and the essence of the song itself that for the most part describes a reaper's helpless and weary thoughts. We also can't wait to get on the road on Thursday and play this beast of a song for a live audience!” More...

Sepultura To Premiere Documentary In London

Part concert film, part testimonial to the power of music, part intimate insider view, Sepultura Endurance is a close-focus portrait of Brazil’s rock legends featuring previously unseen archival footage from the band’s 30 year history. It features interviews with legends including Lars Ulrich, Scott Ian and Slipknot's Corey Taylor.

Having been on the road for almost 30 years, founding their own genre and influencing a generation of younger bands along the way, these Brazilians have proved to be a true institution. Sepultura has released 14 albums and sold millions of albums worldwide, earning multiple gold and platinum records across the globe. Following the band as they toured and recorded their last three albums, a time of tension and triumph, director Otavio Juliano serves up the history, myths, conflicts, personnel changes and struggles, allowing us to see them at their most vulnerable and human, as well as icons of heavy metal.

UK premiere will take place this Sunday 11th November in Dalston, London at the Rio Dalston Cinema. More...

Ministry Posts Visualizer Video Online

Industrial-metal legends Ministry will continue to support their critically acclaimed album "AmeriKKKant" with a full U.S. tour later this November, supported by synth-wave sensations Carpenter Brut. In anticipation of the trek the band has released a visualiser for the track "We're Tired Of It," below.

Produced by Al Jourgensen, recorded at Caribou Studios in Burbank, CA and with striking artwork created by Mister Sam Shearon, the psychedelic, politically influenced and very much in-your-face AmeriKKKant’s nine tracks are rooted in Jourgensen’s unadulterated anger for what’s happening in America today: the waning respect for the US Constitution, the growing acceptance of one’s opinions replacing facts, the decline of our leaders’ sense of morals, ethics and personal responsibility to the country and to their constituents, and the mad man in the White House.

The tour dates are as follows: More...
