The new Bloodclot stuff out so far has been really good. Pre-order the new Metal Blade backed UP IN ARMS right HERE.

Band Spotlight: Body Count

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, May 14, 2017 at 6:54 PM (PST)

Body Count are not our latest band spotlight because you don’t know who they are. Hell, they are infamous! How many rock bands still scare crusty old white people in 2017? Powerflo and Prophets Of Rage are helping bring actually good rap metal back, but Body Count hit the biggest grand slam of late with Bloodlust. The thrash act have been around since “Cop Killer” was the most controversial song in the world, but recently soared back to prominence in the metal scene with topical songs capturing current headlines. “Civil War”, “No Lives Matter” and the new album’s strongest cut “Black Hoodie” – paired with cameos from Dave Mustaine, Max Cavalera and Randy Blythe plus charismatic spoken intros from Ice-T – have secured the band respect well beyond a novelty status they never deserved. Bloodlust has been out a few months now and remains in heavy rotation for many of us.

Theatrical tour machines In This Moment have seemingly named their next offering Ritual. Some artwork was revealed today and fans are freaking out. “River Of Fire”, a new song the band has been playing live, was fucking awesome when I saw them in Albany (one of the biggest highlights of the set). More news as we get it.

After a strong finish on a series of tour dates across the UK and Central Europe alongside heavy-hitters’ Meshuggah and Arch Enemy respectively, Swedish thrash metallers’ THE HAUNTED have been busy completing the recording and mixing process of their upcoming, 9th studio album effort. Recorded at Parlour Studios in the UK with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, The Exploited), the album is entitled Strength In Numbers and will be released worldwide via Century Media Records on August 25, 2017.

THE HAUNTED‘s guitarist Ola Englund has checked in with the following comment:“Working on “Strength In Numbers” with Russ Russell as an engineer and producer has been an incredible experience. His attitude and positivity has helped us to truly do our best when recording. He’s just a killer guy to be around!”, before adding:“All the tracking for the album has been completed and Russ is right in the middle of mixing and mastering it. And from the early mixes I’ve heard, it’s shaping up to be insanely heavy. No clean singing, no banjo, no pickup trucks…so fans of country music are gonna hate it, haha! Seriously: Heads are gonna roll. In a good way…”

Iced Earth reveal cover art for new record

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 11:02 AM (PST)

Iced Earth have revealed the artwork to next record Incorruptible, a fitting title for a band who refuse to be anything less than metal to the grave. Dystopia by Iced Earth shoulda won a Grammy and pretty sure they had that album name first Mega Dave. Anyway, this one follows the also excellent Plagues Of Babylon and is going to be the great Stu Block’s third proper record with the band, so we are thrilled for the dudes that it continues to pan out.

From the band’s official Facebook:

Surprise everyone!! Iced Earth doesn’t follow the rules, they told us tomorrow, we said let’s give it to the fans now!!
Here is the new cover art for “Incorruptible” – OUT JUNE 16th WORLDWIDE !!
Pre order info and various formats released here on Monday !!

Crusty Death/Doom outfit VALLENFYRE , one of the most killer bands in heavy music will release its third album, Fear Those Who Fear Him, via Century Media Records on June 2nd, 2017.

Now, the band proudly presents the first single and video clip for this opus. Greg Mackintosh (vocals and guitar) comments: “’Kill All Your Masters’ is about the frustration and anger we feel towards the many people and regimes in positions of power, whether it be political, religious or corporate, inflicting crimes and injustices on an often docile and enslaved population, who in many ways seem happy to be told what to do by anything from ancient books to lifestyle magazines.”

If you are on extra edge from how fucking dumb the world has been of late, this is some much needed riff/hate therapy.

Album Review: Sanctuary – “Inception”

Posted by Andrew Johann Datoush on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 9:47 AM (PST)

I normally have a big story to go into before I get into reviewing the record I’m writing about, but this time, I really don’t have much of an opener. I mean, the band I love that made me wait 23 years in between albums just announced that they were going to be putting out a “prequel” to their 1988 debut. To say that I am stoked to play this album is a bit of an understatement. Hell, the fact that I was shaking trying to put the CD into the player because I was that excited is an understatement to just how truly excited I was. As I said, usually I’m the one opening with the story, but this time the story is all them. Back in 1986, Seattle area thrashers SANCTUARY recorded Inception, and 30 years later, the band is finally releasing it.

Now most of you have probably already heard a good chunk of the songs on the Refuge Denied (1988) album, but these are the original versions, as well as a couple of songs that have never seen the light of day on an official release until now. These recordings have been wonderfully polished up, but still manage to be raw as fuck and filled with an intensity not seen on the Refuge Denied album. Any SANCTUARY fans that have been patiently waiting for this release should be pleasantly surprised, as in my personal opinion, most of these songs outdo the “Refuge Denied” versions we got in 88. Let’s all hope that Lenny Rutledge (guitars) does some more cleaning and find some more tracks for another release in the future, because Inception is the best 80s metal album to ever come out in 2017! Key Tracks 1. Dream Of The Incubus 2. Die For My Sins 3. Battle Angels 4.5 / 5 Stars

Fiction is one of Dark Tranquillity‘s greatest works, the melodeth and piano laced compositions taking the band’s sound to the next level of morose and demon clutching, teeth gnashing splendor. This is one of their records that can really stand next to any At The Gates release with pride, even if they don’t get as much love. Outstanding album full of darkness, hope and striving. Seriously, “The Lesser Faith” is one of the best metal songs I have ever heard in my fucking life.

On vinyl for the very first time – the expanded edition of Dark Tranquillity‘s powerful 2007 album Fiction.Package includes the original Fiction LP as well as a bonus 7″ featuring all four of the expanded edition tracks.The release will be available on 4/16/16 just in time for Record Store Day. Limited to 1,000 copies on red vinyl (with the 7″ on black vinyl, housed inside a black dust sleeve) and under exclusive license from Century Media.Here’s a list of participating locations that will have copies!

Deep Cuts : Iced Earth

Posted by Andrew Johann Datoush on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 12:47 PM (PST)

The funny thing about metal music is that we have extremely passionate fans. You typically don’t get our type of fans with other genres. I’ve never heard of anyone coming out of a concert hall yelling “,I got so fucked up in the pit tonight! Best CELINE DION show ever!!!” (Morgan’s note: “I would.”)

That being said, while most metal bands have these rabid fans, there are certain bands who seem to have an even more passionate type of fan. Bands like IRON MAIDEN, MANOWAR, and even ICED EARTH have these fans. Fans who love absolutely everything the band puts out. Fans who, when asked, cannot tell you a single song they don’t like, but can rattle off 200 song titles when you ask them for their top favorite song. They have the logos, lyrics, and album covers tattooed on their bodies. They are like Juggalos, except they’re actually human, and you don’t necessarily have to cross the street when you see them walking towards you.

When I was asked to do a Deep Cuts on ICED EARTH, I felt two giant waves hit me. The first was “Well, this is awesome! I don’t get to talk about ICED EARTH enough.” The second wave that hit me was more like a “well, I pretty much love everything they’ve put out, as do their fans. What the fuck am I gonna write about”? After much consideration, writing, editing, rewriting, and reconsidering, I decided to just say screw it and write about my top favorite ICED EARTH songs, regardless if they were the band’s big hits or if they went under the radar. It seemed like the obvious choice.
