WHORE PAINT to Release New Album Ultra Sound November 27
Rhode Island Noise Rock Power Trio Throws Down on New LP
"raw, unapologetic, unbridled power...It’s kind of hard not to want to hang with (read: want to be like) these ladies." - BUST
WHORE PAINT L to R: Hilary Jones, Meredith Stern and Rebecca Mitchell 

   Celebrated Providence, Rhode Island underground rock band WHORE PAINT will release its new album, Ultra Sound, on November 27 via Translation Loss Records. Boasting a powerful sound the trio describes as "a Riff Rock / No Wave / Crooner Shred hybrid", WHORE PAINT creates unapologetically wild primal dark rock that lunges and jerks with a fiery post-punk spirit. Recorded at RI's Machines With Magnets studios (Battles, Empty Flowers, Six Finger Satellite), Ultra Sound is the follow-up to the band's 2013 LP, Swallow My Bones, a recording that was hailed as "mind melting" by The Big Takeover.

   WHORE PAINT -- Hilary Jones (guitar), Meredith Stern (drums) and Rebecca Mitchell(vocals) -- formed in 2010 when Mitchell and Stern were working at as220, aProvidence non-profit community arts center. Jones, who holds a PhD in Behavioral Science Psychology with a focus in Gender and Multiculturalism is the Executive Director of "Girls Rock! RI", where Mitchell also teaches and serves on the board. Working with young girls and music, and previously as a sexual violence prevention educator, Jonesfound a need for alternative examples for young women. "By portraying power in our music and performance, we are hoping to provide an alternative example to the current script that girls are experiencing in the rest of culture,” says Jones.

   Citing shared influences including the likes of Nick Cave, Lydia Lunch, Danzig, the Golden Girls, Girls Rock! students and Dolly Parton (“Anybody that thinks they have to swear and act like a dick on stage to get noticed needs to just meditate on Dolly for a few hours,” Mitchell notes), the band released its first EP, Menarchy, in 2011 to rousing response. But it was the group's 2013 full-length, Swallow My Bones, that fully galvanized the trio; a complex eight song journey that has been likened to "a ship ride in the middle of the night on the open sea...dark, beautiful, and haunting".

   We find ourselves aligned in many ways: ideologically, aesthetically, politically, and musically," states Mitchell. "Being women is one of many things we have in common. It basically rules. Now, with the impending release of Ultra SoundWHORE PAINT is set to deliver its strongest statement of intent to date. The record is a furious recording that delivers the same effects as the band's searing live sets: domination and devastation of its audience, leaving mouths agape, eardrums split and ideologies flexed.
   Track listing:

     1.) Maiden
     2.) Locked in Water
     3.) Dogs
     4.) This Quiet
     5.) Run
     6.) Breathe With the Light On
     7.) Waste
     8.) Held
     Ultra Sound is available to pre-order now at this location.

About September Mourning:

September Mourning has just recorded her debut EP. It tells a story in 6 songs, an epic tale of “heartbreak, loss, pain, joy, love, redemption, but most of all, courage…” Produced by Sahaj Ticotin, September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and X-Men's Storm had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as Paramore, Motionless in White, David Bowie, and My Chemical Romance.

“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”

The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Men comics and went on to form Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic form, to accompany, and enhance the musical message.

Having toured with Marilyn Manson, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.”

CHILDREN OF BODOM Release Official Video For "Morrigan"


Today Finnish metal superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM have released the first official music video for "Morrigan" from their ninth studio album I Worship Chaos that is set for an October 2nd release via Nuclear Blast.  Legendary, Swedish director Patric Ullaueus known for his work with Europe, Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy and others, handled the production duties on the video. Check out the video HERE.

Patric states: "The last time I worked with COB we did great stuff together.
Trashed, Lost and Strungout was Gold awarded and the Chaos Ridden Years Stockholm Knockout Live DVD was also Gold awarded. So after all these years it was a great pleasure to get to work with them again. The band decided not to be in the video as they wanted to tell the story about The Warrior Goddess Morrigan and together with the band we made this tale about a man fighting his inner demons."
Over the past weeks, CHILDREN OF BODOM have posted a series of Track-By-Track videos discussing all the songs from I Worship Chaos.  They can be viewed below.

DIE CHOKING Leaks "Millirem" Via Bloody-Disgusting; Band Embarks On Escape The Pope Tour As III LP Nears Release Through The Compound Recs

Another vicious portion of antagonized grindcore vengeance from DIE CHOKING is today rammed down the public's collective throat courtesy of Bloody-Disgusting, as the massive horror culture site premieres "Millirem," the opening track from the trio's rapidly approaching III debut LP.
DIE CHOKING will also embark on a Northeastern blast of tour dates this week, now dubbed, Escape The Pope 2015, as this pontiff character invades the region making daily life insufferable for all nonbelievers dwelling near several major cities, including the band's hometown of Philadelphia.
DIE CHOKING's III --recorded at the renowned Studio 4 (Lauryn Hill, Blacklisted, Cop Problem) with producer Will Yip and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Integrity, Full Of Hell) at Audiosiege -- is a record stripped of overproduction and performed with devastating efficiency, with no samples or triggers utilized in the recording and mixing process, resulting in some of the densest grindcore ever captured, and one of the year's most unfuckwithable releases. With III now less than three weeks from its initial street date via Earsplit's DIY sect, The Compound Recs, the violent album-opening "Millirem" is delivered as an appropriate warning shot as to what listeners should expect from the additional ten tracks III beholds. It's a blistering, whiplash-inducing beatdown of immeasurable proportions, as described by founding bassist/vocalist Paul Herzog, "This song represents an uncontrolled outburst of radiation at an instant of birth or death. Pulsation. Particles. Pre-existence. I have a rabid obsession with puking out waves of aural energy." As per the fearless scribes at Bloody-Disgusting, the track discharges, "just over 90 seconds of pure sensory assault, featuring blistering drums, raging vocals, and a wall of distorted guitars, all combining to ensure maximum face melting power."
Blaze yourself to nothingness with DIE CHOKING's "Millirem" at Bloody-Disgusting right fucking HERE.
The ongoing III campaign has also yielded "Dwell" through Noisey RIGHT HERE, "The Prince Of Population" via Decibel HERE and "Death's Waveform" at Cvlt Nation HERE.
III will see digital release on October 8th and the vinyl on October 23rd. A 100-copy limited pressing exclusive to The Compound Recs in an A Side/B Side black-base Two-Blue Splatter is availableHERE, and the Blues Of The Mighty Haze and Blue & Bone Splatter Milky Clear pressings available through DIE CHOKING right HERE. A CD version will see co-release between Polish extreme propaganda specialists, Selfmadegod Records and The Compound at the turn of the year for the band's first European tour in February.
DIE CHOKING, a band continually performing live, will take it to the next level in the coming weeks, with their Escape The Pope 2015 Tour, which begins this Thursday, September 24th -- sees the band scathing Providence, Worcester, Manchester, Washington DC and Philadelphia -- the last show on the 30th. Along the way they shall shred with the likes of Today Is The Day, Abigail Williams, Empty Vessels, ACxDC, Ramlord, Grizzor and more.
III-based album release tour begins on October 22nd -- one day after the vinyl version of the record is officially available DIY-style -- which sees DIE CHOKING storming again into the Midwest, then out to the West Coast for the first time before swinging back home. Once back on the East Coast again, the rampage continues, including two record release shows, a return headlining show in Brooklyn and a spot at the fourth South Jersey Metal Fest, performing with the likes of Mother Brain, Grin & Bear It, Carved Up, Rivers Of Nihil, Surgeon and more.
The band's first European tour in February will correspond with the co-release of III on CD, handled by The Compound Recs. and Selfmadegod Records.

*SUPERJOINT headlining show
Now featuring Philp H. Anselmo (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Pantera et al), guitarists Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al) and Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), drummer José Manuel Gonzalez Jr. (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals) and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Wovenhand, 16 Horsepower), SUPERJOINTchurns out a debaucherous crossover of hardcore punk and metal and unleashed two critically-lauded full-lengths - 2002's Use Once And Destroy and 2003's Lethal Dose Of American Hatred - before taking hiatus in 2005.

SUPERJOINT's latest expedition follows the band's wildly successful It Takes Guts Summer takeover. In a live review of their New Orleans performance, Whereyat.com commended the band's signature, "straight-up, no-frills, hardcore rock," and, "a very spirited, and just plain fun, rock n' roll show," further issuing of the set, "Infamous frontman Phil Anselmo, who needs no introduction, came out gutturally screaming in a way that I haven't personally heard him do in a long time. It was primal and painful; full of incredible energy and vigor... They played their best songs and had the whole audience singing along to every word, especially 'Everyone Hates Everyone,'... and 'Fuck Your Enemy.'" On their Cincinnati stop, Full Metal Rock relayed, "The band... came out brutalizing the crowd with Anselmo's growling harsh lyrics and the pounding rhythmic metal sound the band deals out. Jimmy Bower and Kevin Bond were on top of their game producing shrieking and wailing guitars matched with the thundering rhythm section of Stephen Taylor on bass and José Gonzales pounding on the drums. With SUPERJOINT favorites like, 'Everyone Hates Everyone,' 'The Introvert' and 'Fuck Your Enemy,' fans were pounding their fists and banging their heads in unison..."

MONSTER MAGNET Premiere New Song and Lyric Video

 "Watch Me Fade" via Decibel Magazine's "Deciblog" 

Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux) out October 9th on Napalm Records

Dave Wyndorf and his henchmen seemingly had the time of their lives when they completely rearranged and boosted Last Patrol 2014 and christened itMilking the Stars: A Re-imagining of Last Patrol!


Now MONSTER MAGNET go back even further to 2010 and theirMastermind album. Even if you know the album inside and out you won`t be prepared in the slightest for the trip that is Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux): just think of the beast Apocalypse Now turned into in its Redux form. Familiar elements drift by and are swallowed whole by thundering psych orgies - Wyndorf often focuses on a singular song fragment and turns it into his ride to total Nirvana. Go look for your daily dose of average rock elsewhere: this is the mindfuck of the year!


Decibel Magazine's "Deciblog" is hosting an exclusive premiere of the band's lyric video for the song "Watch Me Fade".  View the video along with a brand new interview with MONSTER MAGNET leader Dave Wyndorf  HERE.

" 'Watch Me Fade' features one of my favorite musical combinations: heavy, old school organ and fuzz guitar. When I hear that sound I want to sing like some mad preacher. The lyrics started out as a love song but wound up being a paranoid rant about living in the 21st century. I'm sure somebody out there can relate, and ... it's only 3 minutes and 6 seconds which has to be some kind of record for MONSTER MAGNET. Rock on," says Wyndorf of the track.

The first single "Mastermind '69" is available as an audio stream HERE.

Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux) will be released on Napalm Records October 9th.  Beginning today, all pre-orders of the albums on iTunes will receive two instant-grat tracks.  The first is "Mastermind 69" and the second song is "Watch Me Fade".  Pre-order your copy on iTunes HERE.

The album is also available for pre-order via the Napalm Records Webstore HERE.

Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux) Track Listing:

1. She Digs That Hole

2. Watch Me Fade

3. Mastermind '69

4. Hallucination Bomb

5. Gods and Punks

6. The Titan

7. When The Planes Fall From the Sky

8. Ball of Confusion

It's the Beginning of THE END.
It started nearly five decades ago with a crack of thunder, a distant bell ringing and then that monstrous riff that shook the earth.  The heaviest rock sound ever heard.
In that moment Heavy Metal was born, created by a young band from Birmingham, England barely out of their teens.
Now it ENDS, the final tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time, BLACK SABBATH.  Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butlerclose the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story.

BLACK SABBATH's farewell tour, THE END, begins on January 20, 2016 and it promises to surpass all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever.
When this tour concludes, it will truly be THE END,
THE END of one of the most legendary bands in Rock 'n Roll history...

Featuring no concessions to short-lived trends and no modern frills, the brand new ANVIL record will feature traditional metal at its finest with massive classic rock elements – a sound that ANVIL fans love and deserve.


ANVIL and PledgeMusic are offering fans a chance to get up close and personal with the band, access exclusive content and be a part of a truly unique fan-to-band experience.

This will be the first time that we’ve used a pre-sales platform and we are fully confident that getting closer to our fans through making the album will take the making of it and the final album to somewhere fantastic. Considering that almost anyone aware of ANVIL knows our long and sometimes brutal history, we’re hoping you would be honored to help and prove us right in our belief in you… and we promise another top notch ANVIL recording that we can enjoy for many years into the future.”

Tampa, Fla., Aug. 24, 2015 – Underoath, who recently confirmed two reunion shows at the 2016 Self Help Festival and South By So What, have announced a North American tour.  Dubbed the Rebirth Tour, the band will be playing the albums They’re Only Chasing Safetyand Define The Great Line in their entirety.
“I think the thought of Underoath playing again seemed really exciting,” explains Tim McTague of the band’s reunion. “We never thought we’d ever even want to play together again, much less be as excited to do so. It was a really cool feeling, and when discussing what this tour could be, it just felt right to play the two albums that our fans have held dearly for so many years. I think it’s going to be really special.”
“I hated the idea of Underoath being ‘over’ and I’m not sure what we are, but we are all friends again and that’s really the most important thing,” said Spencer Chamberlain. “That being said, we felt like now is a great time to do a tour and celebrate Define The Great Line turning ten.”
Pre-sale tickets are available now via 
http://underoath.merchline.com. VIP packages feature an assortment of items including an exclusive, limited edition, double vinyl reissue of the two releases as well as t-shirts, sound check access, etc (full details below). General on sales begin on Aug. 28 at 10 am.

Precious Child Release Official Video For "I Fall"

 Baltimore Dark Rockers Precious Child have released the official video for the single "I Fall" featuring America's Next Top Model Cycle 20 actress Nina Burns.

“This is one of the most intense things I’ve ever done. I had no idea that a video shoot would be so involved. When we were initially discussing it, I was pretty unsure about how well the video would turn out. Despite this being his first video project, Precious proved that he has a clear and strong vision and it was wonderful to see our initial storyboard come to life. When I first saw the video, I surprised myself and cried. I myself have dealt with my share of darkness and understood the message of the video quite well." - Precious Child

Precious Child is currently performing concerts on the east coast, touring September 2015, and will be touring the West Coast in the Winter of 2015.

W.A.S.P. Premiere New Song "Last Runaway" at Ultimate Classic Rock 


                                                                Artwork and Track Listing Revealed

Almost six years have passed since the world saw a new studio album from Metal Icons W.A.S.P.  This October 9th, the wait ends, as Blackie Lawless and the legendary rockers W.A.S.P. will release their long awaited new album and Napalm Records debut Golgotha.   

Today the first single from Golgotha is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of UltimateClassicRock.com.  Be one of the first to hear "Last Runaway" HERE 

Frontman Blackie Lawless told about Ultimate Classic Rock about "Last Runaway":  

"40 years ago I came to Hollywood as a teenager.  Terrified and scared out of my mind, I had no idea what waited there for me.  The song "Last Runaway" is an intensely personal account of what happened to me, not only then but over the years and the success that followed after.  Be it a kid looking for success in the music business or any life challenging endeavor that someone would "Runaway" from in life, I'm certain that everyone can relate to this story one way or another.  It's another kid "chasing the dream" .........and trying to survive it in the process...we've all been there!!"

 Golgotha is available for pre-order from the Napalm Records Webstore in North America HERE and Europe HERE.

 Golgotha Track Listing:

1. Scream

2. Last Runaway

3. Shotgun

4. Miss You

5. Fallen Under

6. Slaves of the New World Order

7. Eyes of My Maker

8. Hero of the World

9. Golgotha


W.A.S.P. came out of the Los Angeles Metal scene in 1982 gaining notoriety for their shock rock antics. With a career spanning over 3 decades, 17 world tours, and now their 15th studio album, they are a metal band that has evolved in maturity without having lost their signature sound, unlike many of their peers from their origins.  Golgotha will continue down the path that 2007'sDominator and 2009's Babylon started on, both in production style and theme. Years in the making, Golgotha will undoubtedly lead the listeners on the emotionally epic undertaking that W.A.S.P. has become acclaimed for!

Band Nearing Finish Line with the Recording of the New Album
L-R:  Charlie Benante, Frank Bello, Scott Ian, Joey Belladonna, Jon Donais

LOS ANGELES, CA - (TUESDAY, August 11, 2015) -- In the final stages of recording the follow-up to 2011's Worship Music, Anthrax - Joey Belladonna/vocals, Frank Bello/bass, Charlie Benante/drums, guitarist Jon Donais, and Scott Ian/rhythm guitar - will hit the road beginning August 28 for a 42-city global trek that will see the band playing three major festivals as well as sharing stages with the likes of Motorhead and their fellow Big Four comrades, Slayer.  

Anthrax's Bello, Benante and Ian started the new album writing process back in late 2013 when they began exchanging suggested riffs and other ideas for the new songs.  With producer and "sixth member of the band" Jay Ruston, formal writing sessions started last Fall, culminating with about 20 original songs, almost twice as many as the band had ever brought to the recording studio in the past.

According to Benante, "'Worship Music' started a new chapter in our career, and it has served as an inspiration for this new album.  'Worship' was made up of a lot of different types of songs, some thrashy, some very mid-90s Anthrax-sounding, but this new one is 
really thrashy."

Said Bello, "The thing about Anthrax...we have this heavy, thrashy music and Joey's powerful and melodic vocals.  I love heavy music, but I also love melody, so the challenge is to blend them together so they sound like Anthrax, and I think we've done a really good job of that on this new record."

The Grammy-nominated Worship Music featured the return of "classic era" vocalist Belladonna, and was named one of the best albums of 2011 in numerous media outlets including SPIN, Metal Hammer, Guitar World, and Loudwire, and provided the band with the rock'n'roll comeback story of the year, all adding up to the excitement and anticipation for this new album.

About September Mourning:

September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as David Bowie, Motionless in White, KISS, Paramore and My Chemical Romance.

“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is a piece of the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”

The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Mencomics and went on to form both Image and Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic novel form, to accompany, and enhance the storyline and musical message.

September Mourning carries positive passions into its music, which is often operatic, but also completely rock ‘n’ roll in all its majestic glory.

Having toured with Marilyn Manson, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.”


MICHAEL MONROE, Celebrated Rock 'N' Roller, To Release 

Blackout States On October 16 Via Spinefarm Records




(New York, N.Y.): MICHAEL MONROE-hugely influential front man, force of nature, multi-instrumentalist and revered rock 'n' roll icon-will release a new studio album, Blackout States, on Friday, October 16 via Spinefarm Records.


This 13-track outing was produced by Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Nomads) in Gothenburg, Sweden, and mixed by Petri Majuri in Helsinki, Finland.


It is the follow-up to Horns and Halos, a Finnish chart-topper in 2013.


With Blackout StatesMONROE's current touring and recording outfit, comprised of bassist Sami Yaffa (ex-Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls), guitarist Steve Conte (ex-New York Dolls/Company of Wolves), guitarist Rich Jones (ex-Black Halos/Amen), and drummer Karl Rockfist (ex-Chelsea Smiles/Danzig), provided strong creative support for a groundbreaking artist whose reputation continues to flourish. Many of rock's most noted performers, including Dave Grohl and Slash, have cited MONROE's unwavering drive and three-decade-plus career as a genuine source of inspiration.


Indeed, when Slash headlines the Ice Hall in Helsinki on May 28, MONROE will be the invited "Special Guest," opening the show in front of thousands of fans; after that, he heads across to London to play the Camden Rocks Festival on May 30.


This one-off UK appearance at Camden Proud will be filmed by celebrated videographer/photographer Ville Juurikkala as part of the video for the first single from Blackout States.


As with Horns and Halos, the new recordings see MONROE both toasting the future and honoring the past, occasionally giving the nod to glam punk pioneers, Hanoi Rocks, the group with which he forged his name in the early-to mid-'80s.


Says MONROE, "I'm extremely excited about our new album, Blackout States. It has all the ingredients of a perfect rock 'n' roll record: strong melodic songs with great meaningful lyrics that defy all clichés, delivered with a punky, ballsy attitude by a killer band. I highly recommend Blackout States to anyone who's even a little bit interested in what real, authentic, high energy

rock 'n' roll at its best sounds like today."


MONROE has a number of festival appearances locked into place for the spring and summer, with further international touring plans to be announced shortly.
