To Kill To Live To Kill – Official Manticora Cover. By David Troest

Feeling pretty impressed with the new Manticora “Echoes Of A Silent Scream” video. It doesn’t look super high budget but they did a good job and the music is technically skillful and just enraged enough. The video gives me recollections of Sin City‘s Kevin who Elijah Wood embodied so creepily. So yeah, add a samurai sword and this is not for the faint of heart.

August 3rd 2018 sees the release of Manticora’s To Kill To Live To Kill.  Recorded and mixed by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Destruction, Persefone etc.), the record gives me Nevermore vibes in a really good way. It is their first new album in 8 years and you can tell the group worked super hard on it, so don’t sleep! The songs are even tied into a graphic horror novel  was written by the lead singer, Lars F. Larsen, and the artwork resembles the stories of the novel. This is the first part of a concept double-album, that will be released as two separate albums, one year apart.

Manticora have released 7 critically acclaimed albums, since 1999, and toured numerous times around Europe as well as in the US + played at prestigious festivals, such as Wacken Open Air, Sweden Rock Festival, ProgPower USA, etc.

St. Louis’ thrashers Black Fast have released a third new single titled “Husk” exclusively via Revolver Magazine. “Husk was the last song to come together just as we started recording this album,” says the band. “It’s a little different from the rest of the songs and we knew right away it had to be the closer. Plus, it has a fucking slide solo.”

Check it out HERE. That solo is EPIC!!! It’s nice to see the band fighting their way forward.

The band will release Spectre of Ruin on Friday, July 13, 2018, via Entertainment One (eOne) and have once again worked with the mighty Erik Rutan (Hell Eternal, Agnostic Front, Morbid Angel). So far what I have heard is scorching and the vocals sound like a howling skeleton ripping up from the ground. This shit will def make people give them more respect for having a bit more longevity and adding a lot of impressive new material to their growing batch of already dope songs to pull from.

 St. Louis metal outfit BLACK FAST will enter Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, FL this week with veteran producer Erik Rutan to begin work on an all-new LP for Entertainment One (eOne). Known for his work with HATE ETERNALSIX FEET UNDERGOATWHORE and CANNIBAL CORPSE, Rutan was an easy choice for the band to produce their widely successful eOne debut Terms of Surrender. Citing the positive rapport between him and the band, Erik is very excited about working with Black Fast once again.

“We are super excited to produce the new Black Fast album,” Rutan says. “We had such a great experience working together on the recording of ‘Terms of Surrender’ and I know that we will step it up a notch in this next production. There is a certain chemistry that happens when as a producer you get to work with bands on multiple records and when everyone is on the same page like we are, fantastic things happen. Black Fast is such a unique band of incredible musicians and great people. I cannot wait to get to work with the guys again, capture their raging sound and stellar performances in the best way I know how! May the metal commence!”

Terms of Surrender, the band’s ferocious and thrashing eOne debut, is also now available on vinyl for the first time on the band’s official online store.

BLACK FAST is proud to share that they have recently joined the D’Addario and Co.family. Aaron Akin says, “We won’t play anything else since we found the NYXL brand. They are the loudest, clearest, strongest and most balanced strings out there. They are the only strings we use on the road or in the studio. D’Addario rips!” Black Fast shreds with D’Addario NYXL-1046 and Evans Drumheads. You can find their artist page here.
