Conquerors Of The World brought defiance and skill to NYC’s Gramercy Theater last night, an awesome venue I always try and catch good tours at. The staff is generally really cool, the sound is really consistent and they book a fair amount of good metal shows. Deathstars, Moonspell and Septicflesh are reaching the end of a “long hot” tour (as described by a nonetheless enthusiastic vocalist Fernando Ribiero of Portugal’s darkest sons. There was no sign of road fatigue in the swagger and theatrical bravado of these three great bands, though there were some merch sizes no longer available this late in the tour.

Septicflesh from Athens are perhaps the most consistently ambitious band in metal. I’m listening to Sabbath Assembly’s 18 minute cult hit masterpiece “The Four Horseman” (not a Metallica cover). As the music and chanting about babies and Lucifer with lush and sultry vocals takes me away on this half lit rainy morning, still tired from a long late train ride back home two hours from NYC, I am left in awe and thanks of bands who work their craft to the white-knuckle bone.

Titan on Prosthetic Records has some critics saying it is too similar to the previous release from the band, but really is that a valid complaint? If you are bitching about a huge orchestral arrangement paired with psychotic technique, the utmost heavy speed and nightmare imagery upheaving the soul with important questions of self and the cosmos being too redundant, um…go take out your trash or something. Seth Siro Anton led the Greek demi-gods in a hellraising charge that had the crowd screaming the band’s name and getting down hard, especially ine heavy, somewhat slower bridge riff of new fang bang “Order Of Dracul”. I had to send Androniki Skoula from Chaostar a hyper message to tell her how excited I was to finally be seeing Septicflesh live.

The kick ass top to bottom show was on the same night as the annual Black N Blue Bowl at the old Ritz (Webster Hall) and while it featured my friends in Candiria and Bad Brains this year along with other great bands like 100 Demons and Madball, I still went to Gramercy. I’d been bugging Prosthetic publicist Kelly about this tour since like the split second after it was announced, though I wish they’d been on different weekends.

SEPTICFLESH are ready to ignite audiences worldwide with the premiere of their gruesome and vehement music video for “Prometheus,” taken from their critically acclaimed 2014 opus “Titan.” The band announced the debut as “the second video clip since our formation (the first being ‘The Eldest Cosmonaut” from the album “A Fallen Temple’). The storyline revolves around the theme of transformation and crossing the thin line between predator and prey. It is something that literally brings food for thought. Provoking, disturbing, resisting, surviving the ordeal…”

Directed and produced by Jon Simvonis (jonsimvonis.net) — who added “It’s been a pleasure working with the almighty SEPTICFLESH, visualizing a massive song from their latest album, an album which works on so many different levels. Bon Appetit!” – “Prometheus” is being served exclusively via Bloody-Disgusting.com as well as streaming directly via YouTube

Interview: Chaostar – Les Réminiscences Extatiques

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, February 17, 2014 at 9:50 PM (PST)

Chaostar_Androniki_03_Stella_Mouzi

“Compromising with things already done is not something that attracts our interest.” -Androniki (vocals)

Greece’s Chaostar began as a classical influenced offshoot of the always cutting-edge and generally well-revered Septicflesh. When the death metal act flirted with more and more classical influences on their crucial, evolutionary album (and recently reissued) A Fallen Temple, Christos Antoniou of Septicflesh decided to cast the dice and start another project to further explore that direction parallel to the metal thrust of  his “main” band. Within the span of several albums (and a short hiatus), Chaostar made their own mark via a masterful synthesis of heavy music’s pedigree with true opera (not just symphonic metal’s often great but select borrowing of high soprano vocals). Lush strings, mournful brass, percussion and world instruments eloping in a post-modern blender under a cloud of Gothic splendor? Most bands might make a hot mess of such varied combinations and source material, but Chaostar’s recent Anomima is breathtaking in scope, a real odyssey. In my opinion, the current Chaostar line-up is their strongest yet.

Kurt Vonnegut asked in his “self-portrait” Palm Sunday ,” Are many novelists schizophrenic – at least marginally so? Do they hallucinate, seeing and hearing things that healthy people cannot sense? Do they turn disordered perceptions into gold in the literary marketplace…or if writer’s themselves aren’t crazy, perhaps a lot of their ancestors were?”

This would certainly also apply to those rare musicians in it for the right reasons, panning for gold in an industry cluttered with acts who make lifeless, flaccid and watered down imitations of once great genres. Not so with trailblazers like Chaostar. This is a group who restlessly work to create alchemy that will permanently mark and alter your consciousness. Jung would have had a field day with this band!

Most recent Chaostar vocalist Androniki Skoula is frighteningly talented, a gorgeous chameleon with a voice from Olympus. It was an honor to interview her about Chaostar’s Anomina as well as other matters.

Cover Art Battle Tuesday: Septic Flesh vs. Cam’ron

Posted by JDKleinhans on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 11:02 AM (PST)

How many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover? I have found many a hidden gems and a few utter disappointments but there are few things greater in this world than gentling cracking open the liner notes for the first time as the smell of ink and paper washes over you.

In the world of iTunes and Pandora, the art form that is the album cover is slowly dying. But we’re here to remind  you that in the world of heavy metal, the art of the album cover is alive and well! So each Tuesday we’ll present to you the best and worst album covers of the week to declare what we all already know – Heavy Metal is art.

In the Metal Riot corner weighing in at eight studio albums and a death metal growl – Septic Flesh. And in that other corner weighing in with his Stop Snitchin’ movement and a wishful acting career – Cam’ron.

Check out the battle here.

Children of Bodom Announces North American Headling Tour

Posted by JDKleinhans on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 10:19 AM (PST)

Hard partying (and harder rocking) Finnish band Children of Bodom (or COB) has announced a North American headlining tour in support of their just released new album “Relentless Reckless Forever” which landed at #41 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week of release. Brought to you by Guitar World and Revolver, the month long summer tour will kick off in Los Angeles on June 24 and run through July 24 in Montreal where COB will perform alongside KISS, Motörhead and more as part of the “Heavy MTL” hard rock festival.

“We are psyched to see all of our friends in North America and to play our new songs live for all of the Bodom maniacs,” commented COB guitarist / vocalist Alexi “Wildchild” Laiho. “Get ready to throw it down!” Support on the Children of Bodom tour will come from Devin Townsend with openers Obscura and Septicflesh rotating positions each night.

Recorded in Finland with famed rock producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet), “Relentless Reckless Forever” is the seventh studio album of Children of Bodom’s illustrious career. COB’s high-energy hooks and electric energy forge stadium-sized heavy metal anthems that seethe with both marvelous musicianship and a phenomenal pop prowess. The first single and video from the album is the “party song” “Was It Worth It?”. The “Was It Worth It?” video was filmed on location at Pennsylvania’s Action Sports compound Camp Woodward and sees COB join forces with two-time X Games gold medalist and two-time Thrasher magazine “Skater of the Year” Chris Cole and noted pro skaters Jamie Thomas, Garrett Hill and Tom Asta to deliver a one-of-a-kind “audio and visual experience” that perfectly captures the band’s live intensity. Check out “Was It Worth It?” today at this location.

Septicflesh debuts new cover art for forthcoming album “The Great Mass”

Posted by jessepac on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at 5:27 PM (PST)

Septicflesh band pictureGreek Death Metalers Septicflesh have unveiled the cover artwork for forthcoming album “The Great Mass,” which will hit the stores worldwide on April 18th (and one day later in North America) via Season of Mist. It was designed by Seth Siro Anton himself.

This is the album’s jewel case edition cover, with the main artwork for “The Great Mass” appearing on the limited Digipak edition, the gatefold LP and the dust jacket of the collector’s book. In total, five editions will be released including a CD and Blu-ray combo and digital download.

Seth explains: “This is a small fragment of the artwork that will dress the new artistic experiment of Septicflesh, ‘The Great Mass’. It is a small part of an occult machine made from marble and flesh, fantasy and reality, order and chaos. A great machine composed from the blasphemous union of strange figures, creations of Man, the creator of the gods and demons. Their grotesque purpose will be revealed soon, when all the cover editions of the new album will be presented and will be combined together… Let the great self-cannibalistic symposium begin.
