EX DEO – News For Upcoming Full Length Album „The Immortal Wars“!

23. July 2016

Ancient Rome influenced Juggernaut’s EX DEO have completed the writing process for the bands third installment “The Immortal Wars“, after months of piecing together the new concept masterpiece , surrounding the historic and famous Punic wars with Hannibal’s Carthage , the band is finally satisfied and the stamp of approval has been given with the end results.

exde

EX DEO are set to enter JFD Studios in Texas and Pirate Studio in Montreal ,Canada with producer J-F Dagenais ( Kataklysm, Malevolent Creation , Misery index , Despised Icon ) to record this new opus , in what frontman Maurizio Iacono describes as “an ultimate historic lesson dipped in violence and blended with and incredibly brutal score that will transport you back in time and get your blood boiling, no details have been spared.“ Mixing duties will be handled in Sweden by acclaimed producer JENS BOGREN ( Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy , Fleshgod Apocalypse) this September , expect an early February 2017 release via Napalm Records worldwide.

Orchestral score composer Clemens Wijers ( Carach Angren , Lindmann, Pain) comments:
“I had the privilege to compose and produce the orchestral score for the new phenomenal album “The Immortal Wars” by Ex Deo. For me as a composer this was a huge challenge as it pushed me to reinvent myself, surrounded by the great Roman atmosphere that Ex Deo breathes throughout their music. The songs were asking for fierce aggressive orchestrations combined with emotional passages underscoring the narrative throughout. Coming from a background in writing epic and horror oriented orchestral music I was able to leave my signature on this remarkable work. I’m beyond proud of the end result and can’t wait until the album is finally out!”

News Blog :: WARBRINGER – Sign To Napalm Records!

23. June 2016

Napalm Records is proud and honored to announce the signing of US Thrash Metallers WARBRINGER!

warb

Started in 2004 by High School fellow metal heads, the members of Los Angeles’ own WARBRINGER have made their way up through the metal scene. After four releases and an endless succession of tours with the likes of Arch Enemy, Exodus, Suicide Silence, Megadeth, Napalm Death, Iced Earth, Kreator to name just a few, this hard working five-piece is ready to take the next step together with Napalm Records.

John Kevill, frontman of WARBRINGER comments on the signing:
“We are excited to announce a new record deal with Napalm Records! We have been writing for the last couple months, the riffs are flowing and the new material is sounding goddamn lethal. We are planning to record at the end of summer and release it early next year, followed by a full worldwide touring campaign. The writing is being led by longtime members drummer Carlos Cruz and guitarist Adam Carroll, as well as myself, and we are being joined by Chase Becker on the lead guitar and Jessie Sanchez dropping the bass-hammer.

I’ve been on a mission to make this record for three years since Empires… was released, and it’s great to see it finally coming to fruition. Thank you all the people at Napalm Records for their interest in theband, and thank you to the fans for your continued and undying support, We’ll see you out there next year.

Keep it heavy my friends! Signing off.“

Sebastian Muench, A&R Napalm Records states:
“I have been following WARBRINGER´s progress throughout the last 4 fantastic releases and am extremely confident that with the band’s first release under the Napalm banner WARBRINGER could step in the footsteps of Thrash Metal Titans like Exodus, Kreator or Testament! We will work our asses off to make the album a success! Welcome to the Napalm family!“

The band is currently in the studio recording their upcoming masterpiece. Stay tuned for more info!

BLOODY HAMMERS – Debut Video For “Bloodletting on the Kiss”!

23. June 2016

“This album is certainly the darkest album I’ve ever recorded”, states BLOODY HAMMERS mastermind Anders Manga, who stays on the dark path to the nether world and opens the seven gates with Lovely Sort Of Death. Today BLOODY HAMMERS are pleased to debut their new video for “Bloodletting on the Kiss”.

“The song intro has been the background music for the popular horror podcast ‘Pseudopod’ for some time now. For the ‘Lovely Sort of Death’ album I put some guitar and finishing touches on it. It’s never been released by a top label like Napalm so I’m really looking forward to hearing it on vinyl because it’s one of my favorite songs,” says front man Anders Manga.

“For the video we rented a castle in the middle of nowhere. There was so much weirdness involved in the shoot, that I’m quite sure the owners would be appalled if they were to happen upon the video,” adds Devalia.

Lovely Sort Of Death will be released on August 5th via Napalm Records and is available for pre-order HERE.

BLOODY HAMMERS are a duo who hail from the mountains of Transylvania County, NC. The project and first self-titled release was originally formed as a studio only project with vocalist/songwriter, Anders Manga producing and recording all instruments

Soon Anders decided to take the project from the studio to a real band by recruiting his wife Devallia to play keyboards and other local musicians for live shows.

In late 2013 Anders was approached by one of Europe’s largest rock and metal labels, Napalm Records. In 2014 Napalm released BLOODY HAMMERS’ third official album titled Under Satan’s Sun.

Through the snowy winter of 2015, Anders began writing again, but this time took a much darker and atmospheric direction.

For the first time he added thick Moog sounds along with his normal fuzzed-out guitar, with more atmospheric keys provided by Devallia. They emerged from the winter with Lovely Sort of Death, their darkest album yet.

babibobalAk máte radi domácu rockovú scénu, možno ste sa už stretli s menom Ballsqueezer (napr. aj na webe Metalmania-Magazín 🙂 ). Ak nie pripomínam, že pochádzajú z hlavného mesta a aj keď koncertujú málo, čo sa týka vydávania albumov sú mimoriadne aktívni – až hyperaktívni. Veď minulý rok vydali dokonca tri albáče a aj tento rok im vyšla novinka. My si ale týmto článkom pripomenieme ich počin Beer in Botstvana z roku 2014.

Tak, ako na platniach z roku 2015 a na debute (obe si rozoberieme neskôr) aj tu nám ,,chlapci z Bratislavy“  prinášajú svoj chytľavý rockandroll s občasnými presahmi do metalu (Meet the Death). Čiže pomerne jednoduché skladby podporené ostrým vokálom speváka Daddyho. Menšou nevýhodou sú automatické bicie, ktoré kapela použila na všetkých albumoch. Na prvý pohľad sa môže zdať, že ich hudba je úplne rovnaká od debutu Don´t Let Her Squeeze Your Balls, až po tohtoročný Unstoppable.

Ale pri bližšom posluchu si nejaké tie rozdiely predsa len všimnete. Hudba na Beer in Botstvana sa oproti muzike na minuloročných CD líši hlavne lepšími gitarovými riffmi (I´ve had enaugh Motorhead) a kvalitnejšími melodickými nápadmi, čo by som chcel najviac oceniť (Keep Your Held High, Castaway, Until The Last Church Burns).

Preto radím Beer in Botstvana medzi tie lepšie počiny od Ballsqueezer. Som zvedavý na ich posledné dva vydané albumy. Určite osloví aj vás.

Lineup:

  • DADDY – spev
  • MIKEY – gitary
  • DRAKO – basgitara
  • PETE – bicie (člen kapely, ale na albume nehral)

Tracklist:

  1. Live My Life Again
  2. Castaway
  3. I´ve Had Enough
  4. Motorhead
  5. Meet The Death
  6. Until The Last Church Burns
  7. Beer In Botswana
  8. Keep Your Held High

Rok vydania: 2014

The underground years
All began at the end of the year 2004 when Heimdall creates an ambient/melodic one-man-band project named « DunkelNacht », tinkering with guitars, synths, computers and drum machines. He already composes extreme music and yearns for blackened metal… In 2005, a melodic/gothic trend album is produced with a decent sound : « Das Leiden für die Ewigkeit », a work performed by piano. At this time, Nygh Gaunt joins the project as vocalist and Heimdall decides to turn the « band » into extreme metal. The duo records an unsignificant first attempt called « Eradiction process ». In summer, Heimdall meets Beowülf who joins the band as second guitarist. Real rehearsals begin and the trio works on a new musical direction. Heimdall composes some tracks and already thinks about the first album. Through the year 2006, Heimdall achieves in parallel « Gjennom Tidene Til Døde Guder », his second non-metal full-length that is more orchestral. Early 2007, the trio becomes a quartet with the arrival of Alkhemohr as bass player in order to record the first official metal recording « Mass Grave / DunkelNacht » split release at LB Lab studios. Therefore, DunkelNacht becomes a real blackened metal band…

The debut album
The recording session of « Atheist dezekration » full-length starts in summer 2007 with Heimdall and Alkhemohr. Beowülf leaves the band due to musical differences. At the beginning of the year 2008, Nygh Gaunt changes his name into Exp:/13. DunkelNacht enters at Back to hell studios to mix instruments and record vocals. This year was focused on the hard labour of the album, achieved by trio line up Heimdall (guitars, drums programmings), Alkhemohr (bass) and Exp:/13 (vocals). In 2009, Svarte joins the band for the second guitar and rehearsals go on. DunkelNacht plays local music scene for some gigs. Later this year, Exp:/13 and Svarte left the band due to a lack of motivation. However, Déhà (Deviant Messiah, Yhdarl…) joins immediately the project as vocalist. Now, DunkelNacht has its first album ready. The band starts to promote seriously « Atheist Dezekration » with this line up (Heimdall, Alkhemohr & Déhà), still looking for an extreme drummer to close the circle. Despite that, the band gets on stage for several blasphemic live shows in France and Belgium. DunkelNacht bargains with M&O Office for management and distribution of « Atheist Dezekration » in 2010. In the wake of this deal Max Goemaere completes the line-up as drummer and the band continues touring and promoting the album till 2011. Frost replaces Déhà who give up the adventure in january 2011.

Revelatio album
A hard core is built around Heimdall, Alkhemohr, Max Goemaere and Frost during 2011. Each member works hard this year to put musical skills on higher level and produce a more reflexive second effort. Heimdall composes the music and Alkhemohr writes the lyrics. The recording begins in january 2012 and ends in summer at One shot studio after more than a year of hard labour. After a pre-production realized by Heimdall, the band works with Carlo Belotti (Worm Hole Death Records – Italy) and Wao from Realsound Studio (Parma – Italy) to perform final mixing and mastering for a killer sound production. DunkelNacht inks deal with Worm Hole Death Records in May 2013. « Revelatio » release is scheduled for January 2014. In november 2014, Frost is replaced by dutch vocalist M.C. Abagor and the band continues to burn the stage to defend this hymn of leading melodies, dissonant harmony and powerful rhythms. Stay tuned!”

Deadlock – Hybris

20. June 2016

Deadlock have always been about extremes – and always will be! Fans love these Germans for every emotional force run through the raging depths of death metal, technical prowess, borderline pop-laden melodies, nods to classic metal, and casual flirtation with trance and beats. As expected, Hybris turns out to be a multi-faceted monster in terms of both shape and content – and at the same time painfully digs through the last events in the Deadlock camp. Despite the tragic death of founder and drummer Tobias Graf (immortalized with a minute of silence on the album) and the departure of singer Sabine Scherer (now replaced by Margie Gerlitz), the megalomaniac creative urge could not be suppressed: 2016 sees Deadlock rising from the ashes, scarred, but heads held high. Hybris finds its inseparable counterpart in a 90 min DVD documentary ‘The Longest Road’ that translates the album concept to visuals. A gripping and blunt rollercoaster ride that sees light in the blackest night – and that is something only Deadlock can achieve!

Release Date:
08. July 2016

Košický LUNOKHOD má skvelé obdobie: V zahraničí vydáva CD a zahrá si pred MEGADETH

21.6.2016

Košické hardcorové trio LUNOKHOD podpísalo zmluvu s americkým vydavateľstvom Sliptrick Records. Peter Malinovský, Kamil Sinicyn a Fero Proks svoj debutový album „Watch Out … Season Of Discontent“ ponúknu nielen slovenským ale aj zahraničným fanúšikom.

LUNOKHOD

„Album sme si najprv pokusne vydali sami doma v obmedzenom náklade, ktorý sa veľmi rýchlo rozpredal. Tak sme ho rozposlali rôznym vydavateľstvám vo svete. A z tých mnohých sa nám ozvali dve – toto a ešte jedno, ktorého podmienky sa nám ale nepáčili. Sliptrick Records nám ponúkol seriózne podmienky, dobre sa nám s nimi komunikovalo, vedeli sme, že to bude fajn“, hovorí gitarista Peter Malinovský.

„Watch Out… Season Of Discontent“ bude vydaný v dvoch etapách. „V prvej etape vyjde v štátoch Európskej únie, Škandinávii, USA a Kanade. Keď to pôjde dobre, tak sa v druhej etape môže pridať aj Austrália, Nový Zéland, Japonsko a Južná Amerika“, vraví Peter.

„Sliptrick Records má sídlo v Indiane v USA a operatívu pre Európu v Taliansku,Švédsku, Litve a Japonsku.Je to menšie vydavateľstvo, existuje už takmer 10 rokov. Zaoberá sa vyhľadávaním kapiel z ktorých by neskôr niečo mohlo byť a pracuje s nimi“, predstavil gitarista firmu, ktorá sa postará o promo, fyzickú a digitálnu distribúciu Lunokhodu a všetky ďalšie kroky, ktoré by mu mohli otvoriť dvere do sveta.

 Lunokhod vás prinúti rozmýšľať.

Sliptrick Records prezentuje na svojom webe Lunokhod takto: „Kapela sa pohybuje na hrane hardcoru, metalu a melodického ťažkého alternatívneho rocku, ich debut je ako čerstvý melón počas horúceho prímorského dňa a zároveň agresívny ako má byť správny hardcore. Seriózne zmysluplné texty, ktoré vás prinútia rozmýšľať.“

Lunokhod, kapela ktorá si tvrdohlavo žije vo svojom vlastnom svete.

„Tešíme sa, že po 3 rokoch existencie a po 2 EP môžeme povedať, že naše prvé CD vyjde aj v zahraničí. Je to zadosťučinenie, pretože už na začiatku nám bolo jasné, že chceme robiť veci úplne ináč ako ostatní. V tom vidíme zmysel kapely LUNOKHOD, zmysel hudby a umenia ako takého. Skromne sa snažiť o originalitu“, vysvetľuje Peťo. „A keď sa to páči čo i len piatim ďalším ľuďom, sme šťastní. Naši fans nie sú možno najpočetnejší, ale sú najlepší, pretože sú hardcore a nedajú na nás dopustiť – vďaka nim sa snažíme a každý náš mini úspech je vlastne ich úspechom, sme jedna virtuálna rodina. Zázrak nečakáme, čakáme tvrdú prácu.“

Lunokhod a Megadeth v jeden deň

„Máme teraz zaujímavé obdobie“, teší sa Peter. „Šestnástého júla budeme hrať na koncerte Megadeth v Prešove. Je to pre nás všetkých obrovská pocta. Na Megadeth som vyrastal,je to pre mňa jedna z top 5 kapiel. Dave Mustaine je veľmi inšpiratívna osobnosť. Kedysi ho vyhodili z Metallicy, čo by pre iného muzikanta bol koniec kariéry ale pre neho to znamenalo práve začiatok a vybudoval kolos Megadeth.“

Po tomto koncerte bude Lunokhod pokračovať v letnom koncertovaní. Prvýkrát navštívi Čechy a Maďarsko, cestou domov sa zastavia aj na Slovensku. Detaily budú zverejnené na FB stránke Lunokhodu https://www.facebook.com/lunokhodband/?fref=ts

NoControl: “Netreba sa báť povedať NIE”

20.6.2016

NoControl sú pomerne novým zjavom na slovenskej hudobnej scéne, napriek krátkej dobe existencie kapely sa na nedostatok fanúšikov sťažovať nemôžu. Po ich nedávnom singlovom debute so skladbou VŠETKÝCH NEPREKRIČÍŠ prichádzajú so svojím prvým videoklipom ku skladbe TÁ PRAVÁ.

netre

ZDROJ: Pavol Dráb, Randal Group Production/FOTO ZDROJ: archív NoControl

Videoklip vznikol v spolupráci s režisérom Lacom Rychtarikom a kapela si spoluprácu s ním veľmi pochvaľovala. Autorom hudby je gitarista skupiny Jimi Cimbala a o textovú zložku sa postaral Michal Žitňanský, frontman kapely ZOČI VOČI.

“Táto skladba nie je žiadny zamilovaný opušťák, akoby sa z názvu mohlo zdať. Snažili sme sa ňou povedať, že nemá zmysel zostávať v nefunkčných vzťahoch, a aj keď je to ťažké si to niekedy priznať sú to situácie, ktoré nakoniec majú len dvoch porazených a žiadneho víťaza. Preto sa netreba báť povedať aj NIE a ísť svojou cestou ďalej. Asi každý si už takouto situáciou prešiel a veríme, že mnohí sa v texte nájdu” – opisujú svoj zámer NoControl.

NoControl – Tá Pravá

V súčasnosti sa NoControl venujú príprave svojho debutového albumu, ktorého vydanie avizujú na jeseň a sľubujú aj netradičný pohľad do zákulisia nahrávania pre svojich fanúšikov.

Melodici RAVENCLAW nahrávali videoklip. Na všetko dozeral samotný Kai Hansen

21.6.2016

Slovenská melodic power metalová skupina RAVENCLAW natáčala počas minulého víkendu nový videoklip ku piesni „Think“. Na natáčaní bola prítomná osobnosť svetového formátu. Samotný zakladateľ a krstný otec európskeho power metalu.

kaipr

Pätica slovenských hudobníkov RAVENCLAW natáčala videoklip ku singlu „Think“ v priestoroch bývalej košickej továrne na spracovanie magnezitu. Aj keď teplomer ukazoval takmer 30 stupňov celzia, celá výroba klipu prebiehala na profesionálnej úrovni a v pohodovej atmosfére.

rctk

Taktovku nad videoklipom prevzal Igi Petrilla, scenár a organizačné záležitosti mal na starosti spevák Mattey. Nápadmi prispeli aj kreatívny riaditeľ Alex W. Kiss a technický riaditeľ Marcel Závodný.

Na natáčaní bola prítomná aj osobnosť svetového formátu, z pozadia ako divák to všetko sledoval samotný Kai Hansen (GAMMA RAY, UNISONIC, ex-HELLOWEEN). „Kai veľmi pochvaľoval prácu košických kreatívnych ľudí, ktorí sa s nami na tomto videoklipe podieľali,“ prezradil spevák Mattey.

mat

Klip uzrie svetlo sveta v najbližších dňoch a je predzvesťou nového EP, ktorého pieseň „Think“ bude súčasťou. RAVENCLAW ho majú v pláne pokrstiť ešte počas tohto leta. Kapela sľubuje, ale aj druhý dlhohrajúci album. Ten by skupina mala v priebehu budúceho roka 2017, kedy Košičania oslávia 15. výročie.

RAVENCLAW sa v lete predstavia aj na viacerých akciách. Postupne ich môžete vidieť na festivaloch Tanec slnka, Rock pod Kameňom, More Than Fest a Cassovians Metaliance.

19. júna na Slovensko už druhýkrát zavítalo brazílske thrash metalové trio Nervosa. Minulý rok sa objavili ako support legendy Hirax, tentokrát ako hlavný bod programu.

Daná formácia, tvorená troma sympatickými ,,divožienkami“ – Fernanda  Lira (hlavny spev, basa), Prika Amaral (gitara, vokály), Pitchu Ferraz (bicie) patri medzi mladé, no ale rýchlo rastúce kapely súčasnej scény. Do Ke prišli v rámci turné na podporu svojho tohtoročného albumu Agony.

Bohužiaľ koncert sa nezaobišiel bez menších problémov – začal viac než pol hodinu oproti avizovanému času. Ale to bola jedna z mála vecí, ktoré sa dali vytknúť. Inač vystúpenie bolo úplne bezchybné.

Prvou skladbou, ktorú nám  táto trojica  šarmantných Brazílčaniek priniesla bola Hypocrisy. Hneď bolo jasné, že sú síce mladou, ale po muzikantskej stránke mimoriadne skúsenou kapelou. Čiže pastva jak pre oči, tak pre uši. Možno mohli toho viac povedať medzi skladbami, no to je len detail. Osobne ma prekvapil hlavne výborný zvuk, čo nebýva pri akciách tohto typu pravidlom. Príjemným prekvapením bola taktiež celkom obstojná účasť.

DSC_0250

Prítomní si koncert užívali spolu s kapelou, čoho dôkazom bol aj tzv. moshpit, ktorý sa spustil ak ma pamäť neklame už pri druhej veci Arrogance (úvodnej z aktuálneho albáča Agony).  Dokopy odohrali presne 14 skladieb a tesne pred záverom sa nám predviedla aj Pitchu (krásne meno nie 🙂 ) so svojím sólom. Úplne na záver zaznela Death z minuloročnej platne.  Záujem o Nervosu neprestával ani po ich odchode z pódia. Celý klub mál záujem o spoločné foto, podpisy a podobne.

DSC_0302

Záver: Po tejto akcii verím, že o pár rokov sa dievčiny presunú na veľké pódia, ako hlavné hviezdy festivalov a podobných akcií. A taktiež ďakujem všetkým, čo prichystali tento nádherný večer. Nezabudnite si pozrieť aj fotky v galérii, ktorých autorom je Stephen.

16. June 2016

ZODIAC have triumphed with their return.  Grain Of Soul, the fourth full length album by this riff-laden German rock four-piece, is their most graciously focused effort to date, between the obscenely relaxed desert guitar sounds and melodies bigger than the horizon!

Grain Of Soul will be released on July 29th via Napalm Records. Pre-Orders are now up & ready HERE.

ZODIAC states:
“This is “Follow You”! The second song of our new album “Grain of Soul”. A melodic slide into our heaviest album to date. Settle back and and enjoy this tune. We are very proud of it! We would also like to thank Iconographic for this stunning work. More videos will follow for sure!”

VALIENT THORR – Unveil New Lyric Video

16. June 2016

They came from Venus to destroy the cities. VALIENT THORR is a wild ass Rock N Roll band said to hail from inside of the planet Venus. Since crash landing on Earth in the year 2000, they’ve played well over 1500 shows all over the world. They’ve toured with visionaries from Motörhead and Joan Jett to contemporary heroes like Mastodon, Gogol Bordello, and Clutch. Since 2005 they have put out six full-length records and two seven inches! And just so you don’t think we’re blowing smoke, look them up! This is only the cusp of the feats of greatness this hard working, sweat drenched band has accomplished!

Old Salt will be released on July 29th; this is their first album for Napalm Records debut and seventh full-length release. Old Salt is the highly anticipated follow up to 2013’s Our Own Masters.
