primalfeardeliveringGerman power rockers Primal Fear are ready to drop their tenth studio album on January 28 via Frontiers. That’s the album art over there on the left.

Vocalist Ralf Scheepers said, “We worked hard to create our best album ever. I already felt the vibe during the pre-production that we were working on something very special this time. And now the result is just an amazing metal album I’m extremely proud of!”

Bassist and producer Mat Sinner added, “The songs, the production, the sound — this album is a very special one for me and my career. In my view, everybody in the band just did a killer job and Jacob [Hansen, who’s worked with Volbeat and Pretty Maids] was fantastic choice to mix the album!”

The band will drop the single (and accompanying video) “When Death Comes Knocking” next month on December 2.

You can check out a sample of that first single and the album’s track list here.

Iced Earth begin mixing new album “Plagues of Babylon”

Posted by GageT on Friday, August 16, 2013 at 8:20 AM (PST)

Iced_Earth_2012Power metallers Iced Earth have begun mixing on their new record Plagues of Babylon, set for a January 2014 release via Century Media.

In an interview with Metal4 magazine at Rockharz festival in Germany, frontman Jon Schaffer said about the record: “It’s a bit of a different thing for us, because it’s half of a concept and the other half [isn’t]. Musically, I think it’s just another step in the right direction. It’s really heavy, it’s very melodic. It has a really epic feeling. Even though there isn’t, like, a monster, long epic track, the overall feel of the songs is very epic. I mean, there’s no ‘Dante’s Inferno’ or ‘Gettysburg’ or the ‘Something Wicked’ trilogy or something like that on here, but I’m really happy with it.

Firewind announce “Apotheosis – Live 2012” with trailer

Posted by GageT on Friday, May 31, 2013 at 7:03 AM (PST)

firewindapotheosisThose melodic headbangers from Greece are up to it again. Firewind just announced a new live album, called Apotheosis – Live 2012 to be released on June 24 via Century Media. The album contains 17 tracks from special anniversary shows in Greece along with European shows from their “Few Against Many” tour last year in support of their album of the same name. It was recorded just before the departure of vocalist Apollo Papathanasio, making it the last release with him.

Guitarist Gus G. had this to say about the new record:

“Apotheosis = the glorification of a subject to a divine level. That is the word that came to my mind while thinking of how I could best describe the feeling and the vibe of those four anniversary shows we played in our homeland Greece and our last European headline tour in 2012! So that had to be our live album’s title. You can feel the energy on these recordings, you can hear the screams of the most hardcore fans and the Firewind chants… it’s all there. No doubt about it, it’s the sheer love from our fans and supporters that has kept us alive and strong for 10 years and we wanted to celebrate all that with this album. We recorded all those shows, chose the best performances and now we can’t wait to release this one!”

Sounds like it’ll be a great release. You can check out the trailer and the album track listing here.
