LOS ANGELES, CA - Tuesday August 19, 2014 -- Last night, when Anthrax headlined the Rock Al Parquet 2014 Festival in Bogota, Colombia, the band's drummer Charlie Benate took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge - in front of more than 140,000 screaming fans.  (see video below)

Mike Portnoy had challenged Charlie, and he accepted, in large part because Mike Wright, the father of his friend Brandon Wright, has had ALS for 10 years - so this was personal.

Bandmates Joey Belladonna and Frank Bello did the dousing, and afterwards Charlie nominated Philip H. Anselmo, Sepultura's Andreas Kisser and music producer Jay Ruston, who produced Anthrax' Worship Music, named Album of the Year in countless media outlets.

Anthrax's live DVD, "Chile On Hell," will be released on September 16 (Megaforce).




Midland, TX – Multi-platinum guitar icon TED NUGENT rocked the house this past weekend (8/17) with a bombastic set in Midland, Texas, wrapping up his summer SHUTUP&JAM! Tour, named after his latest full-length album SHUTUP&JAM! on Frontiers Records. NUGENT was in top form for the sold-out gig, benefitting the Show of Support Memorial for our troops.

“Show of Support was honored to have Ted and his band help us kick off our campaign to construct a memorial to honor those who have fought in this Global War on Terror and also to memorialize the four heroes we lost on 11-15-12,” stated show organizer Terry Johnson. “Ted brought a message of support for all who serve, and a call out to everyone in our sold out, packed audience to stand up for America.”

Throughout the summer, NUGENT’s 35-date SHUTUP&JAM! tour has garnered glowing reviews for live performances at venues across the country and on July 19in Detroit, Nugent performed his 6,500th gig.

Here are reviews about the tour and album:

“…[with] Shutup&Jam, Uncle Ted has delivered an appealing…modest record full of catchy guitar riffs...Combine…the overall high songwriting and performance quality on Shutup&Jam and guess what? Ted Nugent’s new album not only satisfies, it…leaves us wanting more!”
               --Matthew Wilkening,

ShutUp&Jam!, his first set of new tunes in seven years, hits the vintage Gonzo mark with tightened songwriting (light on but not devoid of political screeds) and, of course, plenty of fleet-fingered guitar heroics…Nugent stretches out on the punky (yes, punky) ‘Never Stop Believing,’ while the relative brevity he demonstrates on the rest of the album serves him well.”                                                                            
               --Gary Graff,

“…it was a kick-ass collection of tracks that impressed me...You just get song after song of his intensive guitar playing and probably some of the best vocals that he has done on any album.” (4 ½ out of 5 album review)
               -- Rick Ecker,

“The one and only Ted Nugent—shredder extraordinaire, multi-platinum-selling music legend, balls-to-the-wall performer—proved once again…that he is all those things and so much more, and that his stage show, musical skills and inimitable, irrepressible, outrageous style make him nothing less than a force of nature.”
               --Lara Dean,
FLASHWOUNDS.COM, July 23, 2014

“Together with his killer band made up of Derek St. Holmes (guitar/vocals), Greg Smith (bass) and Mick Brown (drums) Nugent infused the senses with an arsenal of material…channeling the same blues masters that inspired his own guitar prowess, while continuing to wave the flag for a love of God and country.”
               --James Wood,
EXAMINER.COM (Allentown, PA), June 29, 2014

NUGENT’s album, SHUTUP&JAM! marks the first all-new studio album from the Motor City Madman in seven years. The album features an epic lead vocal duet between Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Sammy Hagar for the lead single “She’s Gone,which peaked at #2 on “Classic Rock” radio chart. "She's Gone" premiered on ULTIMATECLASSICROCK.COM (6/9), listen here: http://bit.ly/1o5E7y1. SHUTUP&JAM! is available on Amazon and iTunes. In the U.S., fans can pick up a special edition of SHUTUP&JAM!--featuring the exclusive bonus track "Johnny B. Goode Forever"--only at Best Buy (or order it online: http://bit.ly/1mUdiKF).

has carved a permanent place in rock & roll history as the ultimate guitar-shredding showman, selling more than 40 million albums, performing 6,500 high-octane live shows, and continuing to set attendance records at venues around the globe. Hailing from Detroit, the guitarist's prodigious talents, earshattering volume & over-the-top onstage antics quickly earned Young Ted the moniker of "Motor City Madman," along with international acclaim.

Recognized as the world's leading guitar showman, NUGENT’s no-holds-barred career spans five decades of multiplatinum hits. From the ground breaking Amboy Dukes' “Journey to the Center of the Mind,” to classics like “Stranglehold” (ranked in the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs and #1 Guitar Lick) and “Cat Scratch Fever” (32nd Best Hard Rock Song of All Time), Damn Yankees chartbuster “High Enough” and cult classic “Fred Bear” (the most requested song for radio airplay in Michigan & Wisconsin).

was recently named Detroit’s Greatest Guitar Player of All Time by readers of MLive. For millions of passionate music lovers everywhere, TED delivers the Ultimate Life Soundtrack. A TED NUGENT show is not just a performance—it’s a firebreathing celebration!

DANKO JONES Releases Long Awaited Live Album – ”Live At Gröna Lund”


Danko Live at Gröna Lund


DANKO JONES is happy to announce the release of their first official live album exclusively through Spotify! Listen to the album here: spoti.fi/1kw9wZb 

With close to 20 years of touring experience and a reputation as one of the best live bands in the world it would have been wrong not to at least try and capture the energy of the DANKO JONES live show on tape with the recording taken from their only show in Europe this year – at the legendary Gröna Lund amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden on May 16th. Their relation to Sweden has always been a special one and has resulted in countless shows, two gold singles and top ten album chart positions, so for this show to be the pick for a live album seems only natural.

The album contains 20 tracks of classic songs from their live reportoire and ends with ”Bring On The Mountain” – a song everyone who has ever attended a DANKO JONES concert will be familiar with – that is now being made available as a recording for the very first time.

The band is currently finishing up a new studio album and will do a string of festival dates in Canada this fall along with an exclusive US show at Motörhead’s Motörboat along with Megadeth, Anthrax and of course the hosts themselves!

The organizers of the annual Hartford-based TNT Fest have unleashed the nearly final lineup for this year's massive late Summer extravaganza.


This Labor Day Weekend, TNT Fest returns with the gathering's biggest installment yet, the lineup years in the making. Located less than five minutes from Hartford's Union Station, this New England Punk and Oi! festival is an easy ride from both Boston and New York. Some of this editions's headlining acts will include the first Connecticut show from Judge since their initial reign, Cro-Mags doing a full Age Of Quarrel set, X performing their entire Los Angeles LP in its entirety, Negative Approach makes their return to the fest, Jook make their first US performance, and Bad Co. Project -- arising from the ashes of Oxymoron -- make their stateside debut, in addition to a full set of all Oxymoron anthems. Tthe four-day fest -- including the Thursday night pre-party -- will also include sets from Sheer Terror, Defiance, Wisdom In Chains, Patriot, Thulsa Doom, Stars and Stripes, Panzerbastard, The Ejected, The Templars, Limecell and many more.


During the fest, Brass City Boss Sounds will have giveaways from sponsors, food trucks and tons of great vendors like Arrest Records, Skeletone Records and Black Hole Records. Similar to their yearly setup at This Is Hardcore, there will be a massive merch pop-up from Shop Shogun.


Check out a massive day-by-day breakdown of the full festival's events below and read more RIGHT HERE.



Thursday August 28th - Sunday August 31st, 2014

The Webster Theater - Hartford, CT


Tickets for TNT FEST 2014 are on sale now at THIS LOCATION.

One day pass: $40 | Three day pass: $120


Thursday August 28, 2014:

Pre-party with Judge Dread Memorial, and dance party with DJs Brass City Boss Sound's Peter Morcey and Sheer Terror's Paul Bearer.


So you thought Judge Dread was dead? Not in our hearts or turntables and probably not in yours either. On Thursday August 28th, 2014, at the TNT Fest Pre-party at The Webster Underground, direct from Holland, The Prince of Rudeness will be making his debut on US soil and teaming up with New Jersey's Hub City Stompers to play Judge Dread's biggest hits "Big Six", "Big Eight", "When We Were Skins", "Ska Fever" and more. Liquor will flow and 45s will spin Skinhead Reggae, Boot Power Rock N Roll, Oi! Chartbusters, Northern Soul Stompers and Junkshop Glam by the BCBS DJs. We have also added to this steel-toed kick, direct from Germany and out of the ashes of Oxymoron, Sucker's Bad Co.Project. They will be paying a rare set of Oxymoron material. Bad Co. Project will also perform Saturday night.


Friday August 29, 2014:

X, Bad Co. Project doing an Oxymoron set, Negative Approach, Defiance, Thulsa Doom, Hub City Stompers, Drug Shock


On Friday, August 29, 2014 on The Webster Theater's main stage, LA Punk legends, X, will conjure the ghosts of Decline Of Western Civilization by playing 1980's greatest debut record Los Angeles from start to finish. "Your Phone's Off the Hook, But You're Not", "Johnny Hit and Run Paulene", "Nausea" and "Sex and Dying in High Society" are just four of the nine flawless tracks on this record that changed the lives of many. Encompassing what TNT Fest is all about, X provides high energy, non-apologetic rock and roll. Directly supporting X comes Negative Approach- one of the greatest hardcore bands to still be playing. John Brannon & Co own more demons than any ten new hardcore bands combined. Negative Approach was a crowd favorite on the main stage in 2012 and we are pleased to have them back. Seminal Portland anarcho street-punk band Defiance has reunited with its five original members to play songs from their first two singles and album. Mike Arrogant, Alaric Brown, Kelly Halliburton, Tony Mengis, and Eric Niff will playing their first and only East Coast show in 2014. TNT diehards Hub City Stompers, Victory and Drug Shock will kick off the festivities so get there early!


Saturday August 30, 2014:

Judge, Cro-Mags, Wisdom In Chains, Bad Co. Project, Patriot, Lenny Lashley, Traditionals, Hard Evidence, Panzerbastard, Broken Heroes, Duffy's Cut, Tailgunner, Damn Garrison, No Resistance, Justice Blocc


On Saturday August 30, 2014, Judge returns to CT for the first time since the salad days of the Anthrax to play The Webster Theater's main stage. After tearing up This Is Hardcore and Black and Blue Bowl last year we can guarantee that the band has never sounded heavier or meaner. We will never have Blitz play TNT (RIP Nidge Miller) so enjoy the much-loved cover of "Warriors" that was responsible for turning a lot of American hardcore youth onto Blitz. Saturday's main stage lineup could be our most stacked lineup in the history of TNT. NYHC legends Cro-Mags will be playing the entire Age Of Quarrel record which was recently re-released on 180 gram vinyl by Brass City Boss Sounds. Wisdom In Chains makes their long awaited TNT debut while Patriot and The Traditionals return. Ex-Oxymoron punk madman Sucker's Bad Co. Project make their US debut. Hard Evidence and PanzerBastard make their debut on the mainstage this night as well. Saturday afternoon in The Webster Theater's Underground you can find TNT favorites Broken Heroes, Duffy's Cut, Tailgunner (representing Canadian Oi!), Damn Garrison (featuring Richie from The Bruisers), No Resistance and Justice Blocc.


Sunday August 31, 2014:

Jook, Sheer Terror, The Ejected, The Templars, Stars and Stripes, Limecell, Sydney Ducks, Lion's Law, Yellow Stitches, Chosen Ones, 45 Adapters, Bloodshoot Hooligans


On Sunday August 31, 2014, Jook will take The Webster Theater's main stage for their first US show ever. Jook, the 1970s underground glam sensation, is credited to as an inspiration of mainstream acts like the Bay City Rollers and features members of the more-well known band Sparks. It still doesn't seem real but we have all three living Jook members together playing all of their singles which are favorites in heavy rotation at all BCBS DJ nights. "Alright With Me", "Oo-Oo-Rudi" "Bish Bash Bosh", Crazy Kids", Aggravation Place", "Different Class" and "Movin' In The Right Direction" are a few songs you will hear. Preceding the main event, our favorite East End Kids, The Ejected are playing all hits. This will be their first US show ever and the only one this year. Sheer Terror will make their TNT debut playing their ugly and proud classic anthems along with songs from their new LP Standing Up For Falling Down. You may even get a Sham cover from their great new Kaos for Kristin EP and you will definitely get a smile from the Rev's famous stage banter. Stars and Stripes will be playing songs from their upcoming BCBS LP and The Templars finally return to TNT. A number of bands from all over the world will join us on the main stage as well, including Limecell from Philadelphia, Lion's Law from France, Sydney Ducks from San Francisco and Chosen Ones from Buffalo. 45 Adapters will play followed by Brass City Boss Sounds' very own Yellow Stitches (Sick Mind 45 release party), ensuring to turn Hartford into a New Hampshire style pizza and beer massacre. Connecticut Oi! band Bloodshot Hooligans kick off the final day and will treat your hangover with the hair of the dog. This will be Bloodshot's final show so don't sleep.





Blind Inducted Into The Decibel Magazine Hall Of Fame



Following their recent stomp through New Zealand and Australia, North Carolina crossover legends, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, are readying to kick off a short run of West Coast live assaults. The near two-week trek will commence tomorrow in Spokane, and come to a close in Vancouver on September 1st. The band will be joined by Bl'ast!, Brant Bjork & The Low Desert Punk Band and Lord Dying!

will be touring in support of their fittingly titled IX full-length released last month via Candlelight Records. Dubbed "a triumph" by The Obelisk, IX was captured by the band alongside longtime friend and colleague John Custer. Clocking in at nearly forty-five minutes, the record offers up the groove-laden sludge/doom/punk concoction fans have come to expect from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY. The Onion's A.V. Club champions the band's "...smoke-wreathed grooves and sludgy rushes of belligerence," furthering that, "the album is a meat-and-potatoes feast," Rock Revolt notes, "...this album contains the vital elements to satisfy the most fervid CORROSION OF CONFORMITY fan," Decibel Magazine elaborates, "COC stick to the recipe that served them well on both 2012's self-titled reboot and the follow-up EP, Megalodon: A little hardcore, a little crossover, a whole lotta Southern rock and (especially) doom metal, all stirred, shuffled, layered and frosted in ways that make guessing their next move impossible. But the band's strategies are more expansive this time out, their tricks more finely woven into the fabric of each song," while The Sludgelord adds, "not only does IX deliver what we hoped for, but they surpass that with an unwavering confidence - the sparks are flying on this one." If you missed it, check out the lyric video for "Tarquinius Superbus" at THIS LOCATION.

In related news, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's seminal Blind full-length was recently inducted into the Decibel Magazine Hall Of Fame! Check out the piece in the September 2014 issue available for purchase at THIS LOCATION

Grammy Award Winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Guitarist

Strikes a Chord at Universal Studios Hollywood, Composing First-Ever Original Score
for Theme Park’s Gripping New “Halloween Horror Nights” Maze
“Clowns 3D Music by SLASH”


Universal City, CA, August 14, 2014 – Celebrated Grammy® Award-winning musician, SLASH, hailed as one of the 10 best electric guitar players of all time by Time magazine, is joining forces with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the theme park’s hypnotizing new 3D maze, “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” at “Halloween Horror Nights,” beginning Friday, September 19, 2014.

While partnering with top recording artists has become a signature of “Halloween Horror Nights,” this collaboration with prolific guitarist, SLASH, marks the first time a musician has created an original maze score for the popular event.  This inspired effort comes at a demanding time for SLASH, whose new album World on Fire debuts on September 16, 2014, on the heels of his “Let Rock Rule” World Tour performing with Aerosmith.

Infused with the rocker’s hell-raising electric guitar riffs, the ominous new “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” haunted attraction is no laughing matter as it unmasks the psychological disorder known as Coulrophobia, a disturbing condition affecting those with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.  

The psychedelic 3D maze will horrify guests, taunting and tempting them with terror and treats as they parade through “Sweet Licks Frozen Clown Pops Family Amusement Center,” a dilapidated roadside attraction and one-time thriving ice cream factory run by deranged siblings and their mad clown father, Sweet Licks. As this demented trio schemes to restore the family business by luring visitors with free ice cream, guests will soon find themselves on the menu as the key ingredient of a sick new high-protein ice cream concoction. 

“I’m a HUGE fan of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and was inspired to partner with Universal Studios Hollywood because they are the founders of creating extreme horror,” said SLASH.  “I’ve been composing music for as long as I can remember and jumped at the chance to be an integral part of this year’s event and create the original score for this creepy clown maze.  I can’t wait to see the fans’ reactions and will be first in line to experience the maze myself.”

“It’s an honor to collaborate with one of the most iconic rock legends around,” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of “Halloween Horror Nights.”  “From the moment I heard SLASH’s original composition for the maze, I immediately knew he got it, as the vibe and feel of his score are so right on. He captured the exact tone we were looking to convey to our guests, and it’s great having SLASH be a part of this incredible event.”

SLASH has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies, garnered a GRAMMY Award and seven GRAMMY nominations and was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Time magazine named SLASH #2, behind Jimi Hendrix, on its “The Ten Best Electric Guitar Players of All-Time” list. SLASH helped create signature sounds like the guitar riff on #1 hits for Guns N Roses “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Welcome To The Jungle.” After leaving the band, SLASH went on to critical acclaim with SLASH’s Snakepit and global success with the supergroup Velvet RevolverSLASH’s self-titled biography critically well-received, climbed the bestseller list in both the U.S. and U.K. hitting #8 on the NY Times Bestsellers List. SLASH landed on the top of the charts with his first solo album, Slash (2010) which featured Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and more. SLASH and his band featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators released the critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love (2012) which stormed the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #4 as the top rock debut and produced his first-ever #1 rock radio solo hits: “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH released Nothing Left To Fear (2013) the first-ever motion picture he co-produced from Slasher Films, his film/TV production company. SLASH and his band will release their new album WORLD ON FIRE September 16, 2014www.slashonline.com.

 “Halloween Horror Nights 2014 at Universal Studios Hollywood will be “More Dead Than Ever,” as it brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in the living, breathing, three-dimensional world of the most notorious and terrifying creatures in existence. This year’s event will feature a slate of all-new unrivaled film production quality mazes, terror-filled scare zones and a fully re-imagined “Terror Tram” experience, uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties, including, “The Walking Dead:  The End of the Line,” based on AMC’s critically-acclaimed, Golden Globe®-nominated and Emmy® Award-winning television series; “From Dusk Till Dawn,” inspired by Robert Rodriguez’s cult film and El Rey network’s TV series; “Dracula Untold: Reign of Blood,” based on Universal Pictures’ upcoming epic action-adventure; “AVP:  Alien vs. Predator,” based on the Twentieth Century Fox film franchise; “An American Werewolf in London,” based Universal Pictures’ Academy Award®-winning and genre-defining film, written and directed by John Landis; “Face Off:  In the Flesh,” based on Syfy’s hit TV series, and “The Purge: Anarchy,” a new scare zone inspired by Universal Pictures’ blockbuster thriller.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH delivered an important message to the world earlier this week with their riveting music video for the new single, “Wrong Side of Heaven.”

The music video evinces the jaw-dropping and stunning statistics of returning veterans afflicted and living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Watch the clip here: http://vevo.ly/wM96O1. In order to raise awareness, the multi-platinum-selling worldwide rock juggernaut didn’t simply talk about the issue--they also went and did something about it…

In tandem with the video’s premiere, the group ignited a special crowd-funding campaign for a jersey entitled 5FDP4VETS “No One Gets Left Behind” on Indiegogo. The campaign’s goal of raising $50,000 was bested by double in less than two day’s time--exceeding $100,000. The campaign continues to run and the proceeds will benefit organizations that joined forces with the group to raise awareness for veterans suffering from PTSD.

Fans who pledged will receive a limited-edition jersey created and designed by guitarist ZOLTAN BATHORY. The initial run of shirts ran out, and the band expanded it by 1,000 in order to keep up with the overwhelming demand.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH also hosted a special screening of their new video “Wrong Side Of Heaven” at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, showing their appreciation for the military up-close-and-personal this past Monday; watch the local news coverage of the event here: http://bit.ly/1rotjIv. The video has amassed over 500,000 views in less than 48 hours since it’s premiere on VEVO Monday, touching viewers everywhere with its poignant message.

In addition, the band launched the webpage www.5fdp4Vets.com. It sheds light on veterans afflicted with PTSD, their struggles, and offers a video call-to-action to fans asking them to send in their fallen loved ones’ dog tags to build a memorial wall commemorating them. This memorial wall will be prominently featured on the band’s upcoming fall arena tour as their backdrop. Once the tour concludes, the proper museum will be sought out to showcase this memorial to the fallen heroes who gave their lives serving our country.

Undoubtedly one of the most relevant and successful rock bands globally, 5FDP dominated 2013 with the releases THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELLVOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2. Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 (more notably, within a four-month period) and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the globe. The two albums feature two #1 radio hit singles (“Lift Me Up” featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest and “Battle Born”) and have combined sales of over 650,000 units to date. The multi-million selling rock titans’ last single, “House Of The Rising Sun” was their 13thconsecutive top ten hit at Active Rock Radio.

USA TODAY proclaimed: “VOLUME 2 elevates the group to the top of its game. Offering more than blind rage, though there's certainly plenty, the songs live in the tension implied by the album's title--aware of the implications of lashing out, ready to accept the consequences” (11/19/13). Following Australia’s Soundwave Festival and shows across Japan and South East Asia, the band concluded a sold out European headlining tour earlier this year. 

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar) and Chris Kael (bass).

Band will Support New Music With 21 Date U.S. Tour,
Co-headlining with Sleeping With Sirens

"Rock's next superstars." - Kerrang!
LOS ANGELES, CA - (Thursday, August 14, 2014) -- Pierce the Veil, who rocketed to success with their 2012 release Collide With The Sky, have been sequestered at Dan Korneff's Sonic Deris Recording Studio in New York writing and recording a brand new album due for a January 2015 release on Fearless Records.  As yet untitled, the highly-anticipated release is being produced by Korneff (A Day To Remember, Paramore) who worked with the band on Collide.
At Sonic Deres Studio, L-R:  Jaime Preciado, Vic Fuentes, Mike Fuentes, Tony Perry
Vocalist Vic Fuentes began working on ideas as early as late last year and began writing new material in earnest this Spring.  He and the band - Mike Fuentes (drums), Tony Perry (guitar), and Jaime Preciado (bass) - started preproduction in May in their newly-renovated San Diego home studio.  In June, with 11 songs written, the band headed to New York to begin recording; nine of those songs are earmarked for the new album, and the band has written two more since.   

Said Vic about the sessions, "We try to stay focused on writing and recording songs that we're happy with, that we like, songs that will be fun to play live and that our fans will want to sing along with, songs that offer a little something different, but are all still very much PTV songs."  

The past two years have been a whirlwind for Pierce the Veil.  On July 22, 2012, Collide With The Sky debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart as well as #1 on the Top Hard Rock chart, the Top Modern Rock chart, the Top Alternative Albums chart, and the Top Rock Albums chart.  MTV named the band a Buzzworthy Breakthrough Artist, and to date, Collide has sold nearly a quarter-million copies in the U.S. alone.  That same year, PTV performed on the Main Stage for the entire Vans Warped Tour, then headlined the sold out, 34-major market date "Collide With the Sky" U.S. tour.  In 2013, they co-headlined (with All Time Low) the sold out "Spring Fever" North American tour, and then played a massive run with A Day To Remember.  PTV went on to sweep the Alternative Press Readers Poll, taking awards for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Live Band of the Year, Cover Art of the Year, Music Video of the Year (for "King For A Day" which has racked up an astounding 32-million YouTube views), Best Band Merch, Best Drummer and Best Bassist of the Year.  "King For A Day" was awarded "Best Video of the Year" at the Kerrang! Awards, and earlier this year, the band's critically-acclaimed documentary, "This is a Wasteland," picked up a Revolver Golden God statue for Best Film & Video.  Most recently, PTV received seven nominations at the first annual Alternative Press Music Awards, taking home three "Skullys" - the most wins for the night - for Best Bassist, Best Drummer, and Song of the Year (All Time Low's "A Love Like War" with Vic on vocals).

Leading up to the new album's release, PTV will co-headline 21 U.S. dates, the first leg of "The World Tour," a  five-month, multi-leg global trek, with Sleeping with Sirens.  Confirmed dates for the first leg are below.

HALCYON WAY Premiere First In-Studio Video From Conquer Recording Sessions


NASHVILLE CD Release party August 16th, 2014 at The Rutledge; ATLANTA CD Release Party August 23rd, 2014 at The 120 Tavern


Conquer Available August 19th in North America on Nightmare Records

And September 19th in Europe via Massacre Records

Award Winning Atlanta, Georgia Progressive Metallers HALCYON WAY will release their new album Conquer, on August 19th in North America via Nightmare Records, and on September 19th in Europe/Rest Of World via Massacre Records.  The album can be pre-ordered on the band's website HERE and on Amazon.


During the recording of Conquer, the band filmed a series of in-studio videos documenting the process.  Today HALCYON WAY presents the first video in the series.  It can be viewed HERE.


Guitarist Jon Bodan on the first in-studio video:


"You're about to watch the first in a series of behind-the-scenes footage during the Conquer recording sessions.  This first one is when we tracked the drums at LSD Studios in Lubeck, Germany with Lasse Lammert.  We ate kebabs, indian food, made some music, and generally made the air in the studios unbreathable.  We also dressed Lasse up in a horse costume.  We hope you enjoy!"


GuitarWorld.com is currently streaming the song the "World Comes Undone" HERE.


The band recently completed work on a lyric video for the song "Home".  It can be viewed HERE.  In addition the video for the song "Web of Lies" from the new album can be viewed HERE.


HALCYON WAY have announced two CD release parties, the first is scheduled for August 16, 2014 in Nashville, TN, and the second is set for August 23, 2014 in Atlanta, GA. 


Tickets for the events can be purchased at www.halcyonway.com/tickets


HALCYON WAY was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album "A Manifesto For Domination" in 2008 (via Nightmare Records).  That was followed up by the critically acclaimed "Building The Towers" in 2010, and the sequel to that release, "IndoctriNation", was released in 2011.


The band toured relentlessly over the last few years, going out with Fozzy in the UK, Delain for a full European tour, and North American tours with U.D.O., Saxon, and Fates Warning. 


HALCYON WAY's sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature song craft.  The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater, Testament or Chimaira.  The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies à la King's X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation.


Conquer Track Listing:

1. Conquer

2. Web Of Lies

3. Conceived In Torment

4. Home

5. World Comes Undone

6. Militant

7. Hatred Is My Cause

8. The Poisoned Apple

9. Save Your Tears

10. Every Second Counts (USA Bonus Track)

11. King Of Ruin

12. Eviscerate The Morning Sun

GOATWHORE Wraps Up Summer Slaughter 2014
Headlining Takeovers Commence + Band To Support Samhain On Select Dates


Following a near month-long run of live debauchery on this year's edition of the Summer Slaughter tour, today New Orleans' favorite metal horde/perpetual road hounds, GOATWHORE, kick off a short bout of headlining takeovers through Pittsburgh, Newport, and Poughkeepsie before making a special appearance at this year's Gwar B-Q on August 16th. The band will take a short break before going roadbound again in September supporting death rock/horror punk icons Samhain on select dates. Additionally, GOATWHORE will make their way to Europe this Fall/Winter with headliners Dying Fetus. Set to commence on November 8th in Liege, Belgium, the epic journey will trample its way through nearly four dozen metropolises, coming to a close on December 20th in Leer, Germany. Additional support will be provided by Malevolence and Fallujah.  

GOATWHORE is currently touring in support of their Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length, an infernal masterpiece which debuted at #81 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, toppling their last entry position of #171 with Blood For The Master.

Crowned "...a blasphemous blast..." by Decibel Magazine, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless is
at once predatory, epic, misanthropic and sadistic. Captured at Mana Recording Studios with Erik Rutan at the helm, the record invokes the tar-thick, battle-ready tone and vitality of GOATWHORE's molten onstage attack in a way previous releases have not and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and media globally. Sputnik Music gushes "[GOATWHORE] deserve a ton of credit for grinding along for so long making blackened death/thrash metal with the same level of ferocity, enthusiasm and New Orleans grit as they were on their 2000 debut The Eclipses Of Ages Into Black
... one of extreme metal's most unheralded, blue-collar bands," Metal Injection christens it, "the new high water mark of the group's work thus far," while Exclaim concludes, "GOATWHORE have always had the stench of brimstone about them, and their latest offering in no different, a vein of smoldering hatred for everything pure and good anchoring the record in a kind of ravenous decadence." Elsewhere Invisible Oranges calls Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, "a fucking solid release and one wild ride down the highway to Hell," Dead Rhetoric applauds the band's "masterful work of extreme metal," while Pop Matters adds fittingly, "a brutally bleak aural onslaught that will no doubt get metal heads pumping their fists and headbanging along with these pummeling anthems of chaos and despair. Clear heirs to the thrash metal throne, GOATWHORE ably step up with this masterful slab of blacked metal and stake their claim as one of the best in the business...


Order GOATWHORE's Constricting Rage Of The Merciless at THIS LOCATION.

Joining them are Salt Lake City deathcore merchants Chelsea Grin and Sacramento based tech-death proprietors, Alterbeast.

"It has been way too long since we headlined in the good ol' US of A and it's an honor to be co-headlining with our friends in BLACK DAHLIA," comments SUICIDE SILENCE guitarist Mark Heylmun. "It doesn't matter how long your hair is, what your girlfriend looks like, or if you make it into work the next day... Come out and party with us!"

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER vocalist Trevor Strnad adds: "We are very excited to finally be able to let the big secret out... our final US tour on the Everblack album will be with none other than California titans SUICIDE SILENCE. The guys have been homies of ours since we toured together with Cannibal Corpse in South America. We are extremely glad they've chosen to persevere all of the hardship and tragedy and we are proud to call them tour mates and friends. The magic 8 Ball says we're going to party our asses off together and have an awesome, successful tour. Cheers to SUICIDE SILENCE and we'll see you all in October!"

LAUNCHES WEBPAGE www.5fdp4Vets.com




“We wanted to do something impactful to help our veterans in need.
With this video and the accompanying campaign we hope to shed more light on the seriousness of their issues. The statistics are shocking, and if any change is to take place it will start with general public awareness. We have been playing numerous military shows but wanted to do more; educate, reach out and donate to the organizations that are making a difference to better the lives of our veterans.”

Global rock heavyweights FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have enjoyed tremendous support from their military fans over the years and have decided to give back to veterans and those suffering from PTSD with the video to “Wrong Side Of Heaven” which exclusively premiered today globally on VEVO and can be watched here: http://vevo.ly/wM96O1.

The video, written by the band and directed by Nick Peterson is intended to increase knowledge about the plight of veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its larger repercussions for our country by way of affecting their mental and physical health, family life, assimilation back home after service and garnering quality job placement, among many other issues.


“Incredibly touching, I watched with a lump in my throat the entire time. Five Finger Death Punch’s support of US Troops and Military Veterans never ceases to amaze me.”
-- Angel Orozco, former U.S. Marine Corps Corporal
Broadcaster at The American Forces Network (AFN)

5FDP have partnered with a multitude of national and local veterans and PTSD help organizations, contact info for which runs at the end of the video for “Wrong Side Of Heaven” and is also available at www.5fdp4Vets.com. The band created this website to provide a destination with more info on veterans affected by PTSD, the issues they’re facing and also to host a video-call-to-action to their fans asking them to send in their fallen loved ones’ dog tags to create a memorial wall to commemorate them. The memorial will travel with the band across North America to be the backdrop of the show on their upcoming arena fall tour (dates below). Post-tour, the dog tag memorial wall will ultimately find a permanent home in a museum to honor the fallen heroes who gave their life while serving our country.

5FDP have also designed a special, limited edition “No One Gets Left Behind” jersey which will be available exclusively via an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to benefit the various help organizations mentioned at the end of the video. For more info on the memorial wall, mailing address for dog tags and how to participate in the campaign for the jersey, go to: www.5fdp4Vets.com

Coinciding with the launch of the new video to “Wrong Side Of Heaven,” members of the group are visiting Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada today to meet with 400 Airmen for a signing, video screening and to talk about the campaign. Those affected by PTSD, both directly and indirectly, are encouraged to share their stories online using the hashtag #5fdp4Vets.


"The 'Wrong Side Of Heaven' video is very compelling and moving to watch.
It reminds each and every one of us of the sacrifices these men and women have made 
and the struggles they continue to face every day."
-- Erik Gloege, THE BOOT CAMPAIGN, www.bootcampaign.com


FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH are scheduled to kick off the biggest rock tour of the fall co-headlining arenas across North America with VOLBEAT on September 16 at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, UT. The tour is produced by Frank Productions/NS2. Special guest HELLYEAH will be direct support with NOTHING MORE opening. For tickets go to www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/tour.
5FDP VIP packages are available at:

Following on the heels of the launch for Wrong Side Of Heaven,” Hal Leonard will release a brand new FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitar tab folio tomorrow, 8/12. The book features a dozen cuts from the band’s current hit albums THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL, VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2. It can be ordered here: http://bit.ly/1ukfKeY

Undoubtedly one of the most relevant and successful rock bands globally, 5FDP dominated 2013 with the releases THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL, VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2. Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 (more notably, within a four-month period) and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the globe. The two albums feature two #1 radio hit singles (“Lift Me Up” featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest and “Battle Born”) and have combined sales of over 650,000 units to date. The multi-million selling rock titans’ last single, “The House Of The Rising Sun” was their 13th consecutive top ten hit at Active Rock Radio.

USA TODAY proclaimed “VOLUME 2 elevates the group to the top of its game. Offering more than blind rage, though there's certainly plenty, the songs live in the tension implied by the album's title--aware of the implications of lashing out, ready to accept the consequences” (11/19/13). Following Australia’s Soundwave Festival and shows across Japan and South East Asia, the band concluded a sold out European headlining tour earlier this year.

MISS MAY I Unleashes Heavy-Hitting “You Want Me” Lyric Video via Loudwire


New Album “Rise Of The Lion” Out Now!


Touring NOW on the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival


Album Art



MISS MAY I is tearing up the U.S. touring circuit this summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in support of their new, Billboard-charting album, Rise Of The Lion. Today, the band is unleashing their brand new lyric video for “You Want Me”, exclusively with Loudwire! Check out the lyric video here: http://loudwire.com/miss-may-i-you-want-me-exclusive-lyric-video-premiere/


Frontman Levi Benton explains that the lyrics to ‘You Want Me’ were inspired by being overwhelmed by the expectancies of others, “‘You Want Me’ is one of the most personal songs on the new record. When I wrote this song, I was relating to the fans because, like them, I’m tired of being pushed around and tired of trying to live up to others expectations. I feel this video symbolizes how we push those people to the ground.”


MISS MAY I’s new album, Rise Of The Lion, is out now via Rise Records! Get your copy via iTunes here. Rise Of The Lion is MISS MAY I’s fourth album and the first to be produced by the legendary Terry Date (PanteraDeftones, White Zombie, Bring Me The Horizon). Rise Of The Lion is inspired by the countless fan letters the band has received over the years.


As mentioned above, MISS MAY I is touring the country this summer, performing on the COLDCOCK American Herbal Flavored Whiskey Second Stage at the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem FestivalMISS MAY I joins multi-platinum headliners Avenged Sevenfold, as well as Korn, Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, Suicide SilenceMushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition,  King 810, Body Count featuring Ice-T, Upon A Burning Body, Veil of Maya, Darkest Hour, Emmure, Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander, and Erimha. For more details visit www.rockstarmayhemfest.com and see below for a full listing of dates that MISS MAY I will be performing on.

*Lineups in each city may vary.  Go to www.rockstarmayhemfest.com for full lineup details.



After the resounding underground success of their debut full-length release Monument, MISS MAY I took a step beyond the metalcore world they had grown up in with the release of their album At Heart in 2012. The record, produced by renowned record producer Machine (Lamb Of God), proved to be one of the strongest and most surprising metal records of the last few years, spawning huge singles in the songs ‘Hey Mister’ and ‘Day By Day’. Entering the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week at #32, At Heart saw the band embrace a more mainstream metal approach to their music. During their 2012 Vans Warped Tour main stage onslaught, the At Heart campaign made massive leaps, seeing MISS MAY I nominated for ‘Best New Talent’ award at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, as well as headlining the Alternative Press 2012 Tour, and picking up support at Active Rock Radio for the first time. On the live side, the band was hand-picked for tours with the likes of Five Finger Death PunchKillswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine.

DIE CHOKING Announces New August Tour Dates; Preorders For Incoming Second 7-Inch Posted



While their second 7" EP to be issued this September, Philadelphia's sonic contortionists, DIE CHOKING, have already begun infiltrating the masses with the material from II. Their hyperspeed set packs all five tracks from II, as well as their self-titled debut 7" into a relentless thirteen minutes or less, leaving audiences in a whiplashed daze.


The live inundation continues this week, as DIE CHOKING returns to NYC this weekend to rage alongside Aussie grind maniacs, King Parrot, this Sunday, August 10th in Brooklyn. The next day they raid Baltimore, Maryland for the Philly Crust Invasion with Alement, Repellers and Rukut, followed by a hometown gig three days later. Next Saturday, August 16th, DIE CHOKING joins the growing itinerary of bands now including Sete Star Sept from Japan and Tercer Mundo from Mexico to play at Really Awesome Super Fun Fest in Wilmington, Delaware. The band has also locked a hometown record release show for II on October 17th, the brutalizing lineup also including NYC death metal experimenters Pyrrhon (Relapse), and Artificial Brain (Profound Lore), as well as ex-An Albatross-formed act, Fantasy Panther. This show will begin a week-long DIE CHOKING and Fantasy Panther tour, including V.O.S Fest in Kutztown, Pennsylvania the next day, with the remainder of the dates being confirmed now.


Ahead of its September 29th street date via The Compound, preorders for II have been posted via Earsplit Distro/The Compound Recs HERE.

8/11/2014 Dis Haus - Baltimore, MD w/ Alement, Repellers, Rukut [info]

8/14/2014 Golden Tea House - Philadelphia, PA

Formed by musicians having formerly played with Total Fucking Destruction, and current members of Cop Problem and Burden, DIE CHOKING's hyperactive, earthmoving grind/thrash penetrates with an even darker powerviolence edge on their latest EP, II, discharging five songs in less than six minutes, recorded and mixed at Mark It Zero Studios with Dan O'Hare (Brutal Truth) as with its predecessor. After harnessing the music in one day and all vocals in another the material was mastered by Brad Boatright (Baptists, Code Orange Kids) at AudioSiege. II is currently at Pirates Press being manufactured on high-quality virgin red vinyl in a run of 300 copies. Enclosed in the 7" will be a document that will function as a real, personal living will, in the theme of the closing track, "Tonsil."









RIVERS OF NIHIL Joins Death's (DTA Tours) Swamp Leper Stomp '14 North American Trek 



This November, Pennsylvania's RIVERS OF NIHIL will embark on the biggest tour of their career thus far as openers on Death's (DTA Tours) Swamp Leper Stomp '14 tour! Additional support will come from death metal legends Obituary and Massacre. The trek will commence on November 14th at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California and wraps up on December 7th in Miami, Florida at Grand Central.

Comments guitarist Jon Kunz: "We're incredibly stoked to a part of this year's North American Death (DTA Tours)! Death are one of our biggest influences, with the incredible Human album being a constant source of inspiration. Throw in the nasty Tampa savagery of Obituary and Massacre, and you have the best death metal tour of the year. Long live Chuck [Schuldiner]. Florida death metal is supreme!"

Earlier this year, RIVERS OF NIHIL released a video for "Birth Of The Omnisavior," a sleek and dark clip that captures visually what this band does so well sonically: play emboldened, deftly-executed death metal at a level far beyond their years. Watch "Birth Of The Omnisavior" from their The Conscious Seed Of Light full length now at THIS LOCATION.

Formed in 2009, the modern progressive death metal quintet's music is as dark and heavy as the coal and iron on which their home city was built upon, taking influences from some of death metal's heaviest, most abrasive hitters like Morbid Angel, Gojira, Spawn of Possession, and Decapitated. RIVERS OF NIHIL's debut album, The Conscious Seed Of Light, was recorded in March of 2013 at Mana Recording Studios in Florida with famed metal producer/musician Erik Rutan. While The Conscious Seed Of Light is not necessarily a concept album traditionally speaking, RIVERS OF NIHIL began their project with the idea that they would release four separate albums tied together with one common theme: each reflecting a particular season of a year. Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates; "The Conscious Seed Of Light is intended to be representative of Spring and explores various themes concerning new beginnings, growth, and an attachment to the natural world in a post-human Earth. Unlike some concept records however, we wanted to allow each song to work on its own terms. Rather than have the songs rely on each other to move a specific story structure forward; they work within their own separate narratives, but ultimately serve the album's broader concept."

ROB ZOMBIE Narrates ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL Puppy Rescue Mission PSA, Directed by Strati Hovartos

Puppy Rescue Mission – Allowing Afghanistan War Heroes to Match Companions with Homes


2014-08-06 20

Saiga, a dog rescued by The Puppy Rescue Mission, and her soldier friend


The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is deep-seated in U.S. military and veteran communities – avidly promoting programs like Metal of Honor, in conjunction with The Pathway Home (PTSD rehabilitation facility) and Hope For The Warriors (Military family assistance, veteran transition assistance, employment preparedness). In addition to these programs, the festival actively supports another great cause in conjunction with our troops: The Puppy Rescue Mission!

The Puppy Rescue Mission (“TPRM”) is the brainchild of president and founding member Anna Cannan. Anna’s idea for TPRM began when her fiancé, Chris, was deployed to and stationed in Afghanistan. TPRM’s primary mission is to help bring home the companions to our soldiers serving in a war zone. These companions already have homes waiting for them — they just need help getting there. TPRM believes that these beloved companions have at times not only physically saved our soldiers from harm but have also filled an emotional need for a sense of home and normalcy in a hostile and dangerous environment.

With the help of the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL, TPRM continues to make loving connections between rescue dogs and their companions! Recently, Los-Angeles based photographer and ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL documenter Strati Hovartos directed a heartfelt PSA, starring a cast of active duty and veteran warriors and narrated by Mayhem-alumni and world-renowned rocker Rob Zombie.

Last summer, Rob Zombie donated his incredible truck featured on History’s Counting Cars to TPRM. At the time, Rob Zombie stated, “… soldiers in Afghanistan would find these dogs and bond with them and sneak them on the bases, even though they weren’t supposed to have them.  It was probably the only moment of sanity for these guys, when they spent time with them….But they weren’t allowed to take them home, and if they could, it was so expensive. That was a cause I could really understand and get behind.”

Watch the PSA here: https://vimeo.com/m/102641607

Saiga, the dog featured in the PSA, is an actual rescue animal from the Afghanistan war zone adopted by festival producer John Reese and his family through TPRM. As a puppy of a dog befriended by a soldier serving in the Middle East, Saiga was brought to the US from Kabul, Afghanistan at four-and-a-half months old.

ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL producer John Reese states, “The sacrifices made by our men and women serving overseas are numerous. Having to leave a dog behind that one may become attached to is just another sacrifice that most of us aren't aware of. The work The Puppy Rescue Mission does is so important."

“A sincere thank you goes out to the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL for their support and dedication in making these reunions possible,” states The Puppy Rescue Mission Founder and President, Anna Maria Cannan. “The bond between a soldier and his dog is truly unbreakable. Thousands of miles away from home, it is sometimes the one thing in the world that can bring a smile to their face.”

OBITUARY to Release Inked in Blood October 28th on Relapse Records


Artwork and Track Listing Revealed


"OBITUARY fall into that rare category of living legends who've still got the inimitable spark that made them so special in the first place - the agonized, pulverizing drone of their bludgeoning, unstoppable tank-tread rhythms is something no one else has been able to adequately copy in two decades of trying." 


Death metal legends OBITUARY make their Relapse debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP.  Almost three decades in, Inked In Blood stands out as one of the finest moments in OBITUARY's already godlike discography.  Inked in Blood will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records.  Today the artwork and track listing have been revealed.  Pre-orders for Inked in Blood will be available soon!


The riffs, groove, snarl and rage are as fierce as ever, putting most all other contemporary death metal bands to shame.  OBITUARY are THE definitive death metal band, and Inked In Blood is an instant classic amongst their already storied catalog.  OBITUARY are both the originators and the torchbearers of the genre!  Inked In Blood is the sound of true death metal kings reclaiming their throne!!! 


The band is currently wrapping up a festival circuit in Europe and now OBITUARY have been confirmed as direct support for the upcoming "Death to All" Tour.  The tour kicks off November 14th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through December 7th in Miami, FL.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

DRAGONFORCE Premiere "Ring of Fire" Cover at the A.V. Club


New Album Maximum Overload Available August 19th

On Metal Blade Records

Frontman Marc Hudson's awe-inspiring voice is given plenty of room to soar, while the music incorporates riffs and tones from thrash and death metal, giving the songs a heaviness never present before.

4 Stars

- Alt Press-

DRAGONFORCE will release "Maximum Overload" in the US on August 19th via Metal Blade Records.  "Maximum Overload" is available for pre-order at metalblade.com/dragonforce, in CD, digital, and limited edition vinyl formats!  While there be sure to check out the band's new video for the song "The Game".


The album also features an all time first for DRAGONFORCE...a cover song! Guitarist Sam Totman explained: "Just before the last Australian tour, our manager suggested it might be interesting to do a cover for the next album, something we've always refused even to consider. Because we had all had a couple beers every band member wrote down 3 songs each and we compared them all, just for a laugh. I wrote down 'Ring Of Fire' by Johnny Cash, an idea which the rest of the band loved, so we've DRAGONFORCE-ized it"!


Today The A.V. Club is hosting an exclusive premiere of DragonForce's take on "Ring of Wire".  Check it out HERE.


The second single from "Maximum Overload", "Defenders" is streaming HERE.

Produced by Jens Bogren at Fascination Studios in Örebro and Varberg, Sweden, the new opus will be the band's first ever album involving an outside producer, having historically opted to record themselves in association with Karl Groom.  

"Working with Jens gave us a different perspective on the songs and a different sound dynamic. We always previously recorded in our own studios but recording in Sweden made us focus and maybe drove us harder, Jens certainly did, he doesn't believe in days off!" said guitar maestro Herman Li.

"Maximum Overload" features a couple of surprises, notably a guest appearance on some of the songs from Trivium's Matt Heafy. "We've always gotten on really well with the Trivium guys and it was great when Matt had a couple of days to spare and agreed to weigh in on some of the songs!" added bassist Frederic Leclercq.

MOB RULES Return to SPV/Steamhammer




Boxed Anniversary Set Timekeeper Scheduled For October 28th Release in North America

Northern German melodic metal band MOB RULES are back with Steamhammer/SPV. A few days ago the group, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, signed a new deal and are returning to the record company which already released and distributed five of their previous studio albums. "For us it's a great pleasure to have signed with Steamhammer," comments the band. "We're looking forward to the collaboration with Olly Hahn and his team, who supported us in both word and deed in the years between 1999 and 2008 and whose expertise we greatly value." Steamhammer's product manager Hahn is happy to return this compliment: "Mob Rules have been among the most significant and impressive German melodic metal acts. We're proud to have them back on our roster."

MOB RULES are set to launch the first result of this renewed worldwide cooperation, their 20th anniversary boxed set Timekeeper, on 13 October 2014 (Germany: 10 October 2014, US/Canada: 28 October 2014). Hahn: "It's not every day that such a top-quality product arrives at the stores. The package consists of a best-of CD, a bonus DVD, a bonus CD featuring new and rerecorded songs, brilliant cover numbers and other surprises, including renowned guest musicians." Steamhammer and Mob Rules will publish more details in the coming weeks, suffice it to say that their fans will be delighted.

The arrival of the boxed anniversary set will be supported by a number of anniversary shows with highlights such as the Break The Barriers festival in Wilhelmshaven (feat. Gamma Ray & Love.Might.Kill) and the Metal Hammer Paradise on the Baltic coast, among others.

Slash at The Forum 7.30.2014 by Scott Uchid

Although it’s said you can never go home again, SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have today (July 31) announced they’ll celebrate the release of their new album WORLD ON FIRE by
returning to the iconic guitarist’s stomping grounds with a series of three one-night-only club shows: September 23 (The Troubadour) and then, moving up the hill to the world-famous Sunset Strip, September 25 (The Roxy) and September 26 (The Whisky A Go Go).

These gigs will amp up the excitement around WORLD ON FIRE--out September 16 SLASH’s own label Dik Hayd International, distributed through Caroline--and honor the 50-year anniversary of the beloved musician retailer Guitar Center. Tickets for all shows go on-sale August 1 at www.SlashOnline.com.

“We’re excited to unleash ‘World On Fire’ in a big way and be a part of Guitar Center’s 50th celebration,” says SLASH. "They’ve been really supportive of me since the very beginning on the Sunset Strip.”

Fans can be a part of history as Guitar Center will present SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators “Live From the Roxy,” to be broadcast on national television on DIRECTV’s Audience Network (Ch 239) November 9th at 8pm. The 90-minute full rock concert will be filmed in stunning 4k and 5.1 surround sound. Fans can enter to win a VIP trip for two to see The Roxy show and take home an Epiphone Les Paul signed by the legendary guitarist, visit guitarcenter.com/slash to win.

“World On Fire” marks SLASH’s fastest-climbing song at radio ever; the album’s hell-raising first single hit the Top 10 this week. Listen to the song “World On Fire” HERE and watch the fun NSFW video HERE.

The WORLD ON FIRE disc marks SLASH’s third solo offering and second album with his official band The Conspirators which features MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums) and TODD KERNS (bass). For WORLD ON FIRE, SLASH and the band worked with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus) to create a powerful new turn for the band in 17 songs. WORLD ON FIRE is the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and earned SLASH two No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits–his first-ever solo–with “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others.

JULY 31, 2014


The world heard a new version of the AEROSMITH classic “Dream On” during the Spring 2014 premiere of ESPN’s award-winning news magazine show, E:60. Recorded in Los Angeles in early April, the song features Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, who are joined by the Southern California Children’s Chorus on this arrangement of “Dream On (Boston Strong 2014).” The track will be released today as a single via iTunes. In a powerful moment at last night’s AEROSMITH concert at The Forum, in Inglewood, CA the band surprised the audience by bringing the Southern California Children’s Chorus on stage to perform this special rendition of “Dream On (Boston Strong 2014).”

"The tragedy that took place during the Boston Marathon was unfathomable, but Boston is incredibly resilient and became even stronger. I am so honored to release this version of “Dream On” and to be able to have had the Southern California Children's Chorus perform with us last night was a beautiful moment, a true gift from up above," says Steven Tyler.

“The heinous act that took place during the Boston Marathon which shook not only the city but the world and touched us all demanded a positive response,” Joe Perry said.  “Boston Strong was that response and gave an example of our city’s inner strength. I would like to think that the strength of our performance on ‘Dream On’ last night with the Southern California Children’s Chorus in LA at the Forum was another rallying point for the goodness in all of us.”

EXODUS Reveals Album Art for “Blood In, Blood Out” –
New Album Coming October 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast


Going Fast! Get Your VIP Packs for Upcoming Tour Featuring Headliners SLAYER


exodus web


Legendary thrash metal band EXODUS have revealed the never-before-seen album art for their upcoming album, Blood In, Blood Out, hitting retail and digital stores on October 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The album art was illustrated by Swedish artist Par Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including EXODUSLet There Be Blood.


The concept for the art was impressively envisaged by Olofsson based on the album title alone, as Gary Holt explains, “The concept came from Par Olofsson – I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”

Blood In, Blood Out is EXODUS’ 10th studio album, and marks the band’s first release with new vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. It was also just announced via Rolling Stone that Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett churned out a special guest solo for one of the tracks on the album. More details are set to be released soon, including release dates, track listing information, pre-order specifics, and more. 



To celebrate the imminent release of Blood In, Blood Out, EXODUS will be busy touring this fall – with a full South American tour leading into a supporting run with fellow metal titans Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies on the Scion-sponsored fall leg of their United States onslaught. The tour begins on November 12th in Oakland, CA at The Fox Theater and will tour throughout the states, coming to close in Detroit, MI at The Fillmore on December 5th. Tickets are on sale now!

TFK OXYGEN-INHALE Cover Art low-res

TFK lo-res



2014 Fuel Music logo












Modern rock favorite THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH is set to release its first new studio album in over two years, OXYGEN:INHALE, Aug. 26 with marketing, sales and distribution through The Fuel Music into all territories worldwide except Europe, where it releases through Hassle Records.  Prior to the release of the highly anticipated recording, the band is offering the lead single and upcoming music video, “Born This Way,” as an Instant Grat Track download beginning today through an exclusive album pre-order campaign at iTunes.

“Born This Way” is a ‘barn burner’ of classic American rock n’ roll by way of TFK’s native Ontario roots. Premiered at Loudwire last week, the single is garnering steam at national outlets like SiriusXM Octane and at stations in at least 35 states on its first day at radio alone (July 22).

Thousand Foot Krutch are back, and strike strong with their brand new single,” says Evigshed Magazine.  “‘Born This Way’ is a stellar combination bluesy rock groove with a heavy metal flavor…It is a perfect anthem, incredibly inspiring, delivering a strong message for people who are tired of being someone they’re not…These guys know how to rock.”

With upcoming featured performances and headlining positions on the summer festival circuit after performing at Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma and more for the last two consecutive years, TFK will unleash “Born This Way” and other new hits from OXYGEN:INHALE along with fan favorites while on the road.  Hitting Creation Northwest, Unity Music Festival, Soulfest and more in the next couple weeks, the band is also engaging the “TFK Army,” fans of the band that they prefer to call their “friends and family,” for a goal-driven PledgeMusic campaign.

The PledgeMusic campaign, which continues through the release of the album, is a place for fans to pre-order the album and receive exclusives from the band that are not available anywhere else, including audio and video downloads, special incentives for all PledgeMusic backers after reaching target levels, and much more.  Asking for just one dollar to fully fund the campaign, the band received the first dollar from hardDrive’s Lou Brutus and Roxy Myzal and already has over 3,600 pledges for support at http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/tfk.

The Ontario, Canada-bred TFK has been a continuously escalating highlight reel since their formation in 1997.  Receiving over 2,000, 5-star average customer reviews on iTunes® alone for its 2012 independently released, SiriusXM Satellite Radio Octane-nominated “Epic Album of the Year,” The End Is Where We Begin, the album went on to become the band’s biggest ever selling mainstream album (hitting No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200) and spark five Active Rock radio hits (“Let The Sparks Fly,” “War of Change,” “Light Up The Sky,” “Courtesy Call,” “Fly on the Wall”).  Remarkably, in combined streaming of each song from the album, The End Is Where We Begin has been played over 215 million times over all of YouTube and continues to receive about 296,000 plays every day..

With additional best-selling albums, Active Rock radio hits “Fire It Up,” “Move” and “Phenomenon,” plus a slew of soundtrack slots, the group has literally infiltrated every facet of pop culture.  They continue to receive ongoing ESPN appearances, as well as various NASCAR, MLB, NHL, WWE, NCAA and NFL airings (including the 2010 Super Bowl), along with the “GI Joe” movie trailer, WGN-TV’s “Smallville” and EA Sports’ NHL 2010 and 2013 video games.

All the latest tour dates and additional band information can be found at www.thousandfootkrutch.com, http://twitter.com/officialtfk and www.facebook.com/thousandfootkrutch, where the band has over 1,020,000 likes.

“Great American Nightmare may be the best example yet of the upsizing of haunted houses over the last decade…”

--Steven Kurutz, The New York Times, October 24, 2013


Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare has announced a second engagement for 2014. The ultimate Halloween horror event will invade the Chicago metropolitan area select nights from September 26-November 1 at Odeum Expo in Villa Park, IL.

Opening night will also feature a special one-night-only concert with groundbreaking musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie.

"I am thrilled to be able to expand the Great American Nightmare to TWO new cities this year,” said Zombie. My only goal is to make it twice as sick as last year."

The Great American Nightmare's second city will feature three attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films: The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D, and Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses. These attractions were first seen at the 2013 Great American Nightmare debut in Pomona, California and have been improved and enhanced based on visitor feedback.

The fully immersive haunted house experience at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will include the Bloody Boulevard with freak shows, musical entertainment, roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night.

”After the tremendous success last year we all felt we wanted to bring Great American Nightmare to as many people as possible,” says Great American Nightmare producer Steve Kopelman. “Chicago is a haunted house hotbed with the Odeum Expo center being the go-to haunted house venue for the past two decades. We really feel the Midwest will welcome this event with open arms and this will be the ultimate Chicagoland Halloween event.”

As previously announced, 
Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will also make its debut at WestWorld Of Scottsdale in Arizona for select nights from September 19-November 1. This engagement will feature the following three attractions--two that have never been seen before--based on Rob Zombie’s horror films: The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out, Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D, and The Devil’s Rejects.

At Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare, patrons will sequentially enter three different attractions, each completely different in look, theme and effects:

The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out: This harrowing attraction--based on Zombie’s 2012 The Lords Of Salem independent horror film--is designed to twist the mind. It will accentuate some senses while limiting others. Fear of the dark, claustrophobia, and fear of the unknown will be preyed on as the visitor attempts to traverse this sixty-degree maze.

The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D: Utilizing Chromadepth glasses, this innovative attraction will take the patron right into the middle of the irreverent world of Rob Zombie’s El Superbeasto 2009 animated exploitation musical horror comedy film based on the comic book series of the same name. The attraction’s unique surprise entrance, brilliant colors, sudden chills and startling thrills, and salacious humor will make patrons scream with fright and laughter

Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses: This terrifying attraction pays homage to the exploitation horror film House Of 1,000 Corpses, directed by Rob Zombie. The extreme, traditional haunted house will take visitors on a walking journey through a recreation of the film’s “Museum of Monsters & Madmen” along with an expanded “Murder Ride,” confronting notorious serial killers along the way. This high impact, highly detailed attraction will use state of the art animatronics, video effects, costuming, sound, scents and lights.

Tickets for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare go on sale Wednesday, July 30 at 10:00 AM CT at www.GreatAmericanNightmare.com, with prices starting at only $25 for September 27-November 1.. Each ticket includes access to all haunted house attractions and the Bloody Boulevard activities.

Tickets for opening night (September 26) include the Rob Zombie   concert and will be available starting at only $45. A limited number of VIP packages will also be available for purchase at www.GreatAmericanNightmare.com. All VIP packages include a commemorative t-shirt and quicker access to the haunted attractions than general admission. Some packages also include a designated viewing area for the concert.

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will celebrate the Halloween season on the following dates between September 26 and November 1:

September: 26, 27

October: 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 26, 30, 31

November: 1

Hours for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will be 7:00 PM until midnight (Fridays and Saturdays) and 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM (Thursdays and Sundays).Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare is a creative collaboration between master of the macabre Rob Zombie and preeminent haunted house producer Steve Kopelman. The event is produced by Rob Zombie, Steve Kopelman and Andy Gould.

Odeum Expo is located at 1033 North Villa Avenue in Villa Park, IL, just outside Chicago. It’s easily accessible from downtown Chicago by major highways, and from the Tri-State area by tollways.

Produced, engineered and mixed by Machine (King Crimson, Lamb Of God), EARTH ROCKER continues to garner the group some of the best reviews of their career so far, see  critical soundbites  below and here: http://msopr.com/files/clutch-earth_rocker-critical_soundbites.pdf.

CLUTCH critical soundbites:

“Four Maryland lifers--road dogs who've been grinding since the early Fugazi administration, cranking out  seething admixtures of jam-band chops, careening blues-punk riffs and singer Neil Fallon's nerdy, piss-taking wiseass lyrics--release their hardest rocking set to date.”

--ROLLING STONE, (#10 Rolling Stone “Top 20 Metal Albums,” Dec. 2013)

“Every now and again an album [Earth Rocker] comes along that’s an absolute classic-not just a handful of good tunes and a handful of filler, but a classic from start to finish. Not since Pure Rock Fury and Blast Tyrant has Clutch been so straightforward in their approach. By their own admission, the band found fresh inspiration from touring with Thin Lizzy and Motorhead and it showed in the music and in the colossal riffs of guitarist Tim Sult. “

--METAL HAMMER, (#1 Metal Hammer “Album of the Year,” Jan. 2014)

“…bluesy rock, blustery, but impressively precise riffage, beards, and story songs about robots.

--Allison Stewart, REVOLVER (Mar. 2013)

Vocalist Neil Fallon oozes the passion and silver-tongued charm of a fire-and-brimstone preacher on the title track, Sult unleashes scores of timeless Clutch riffs (with a highlight being the irresistible fervor of ‘Unto the Breach’), and bassist Dan Maines lays down a gritty yet silky tone on tracks like ‘Crucial Velocity’ and ‘Mr. Freedom.’ In fact, every song here has its own rhythmic or melodic hallmark, making Earth Rocker a surefire future classic.”

--Billy Brennan, MODERN DRUMMER (Apr. 12, 2013) 

Clutch has become a beaming example of perseverance and self-sufficiency for an independent act. …Earth Rocker remains focused on staying tight. …tracks like ‘Unto The Breach’ deliver with force: It’s fast, aggressive, melodic and catchy.”

--Mike Thomas, RELIX (Apr. 2013) 

Earth Rocker is Clutch’s hard turn into primal boogie heaviness. The acoustic flourishes, blues songs, and psychedelic forays that shaped Clutch’s past few records are shelved and in their place are hard and barbed riff-driven tunes. …Singer Neil Fallon is a holy rock ’n’ roller celebrating his music’s cathartic release and its history.”

--Scott McLennan, BOSTON GLOBE (Mar. 2013) 

Clutch has created one of its best, and most straightforward, albums to date. …Working again with producer Machine, the act stripped away the excess and honed in on the riff-heavy, muscular bar-band rock. …The white-knuckled rocking only slows down once. ‘Gone Cold,’ a subdued existential meditation, signals the end of Side A and works as a palate cleanser from the amplification and distortion. The respite also builds anticipation for the album's best track, ‘Book, Saddle and Go.’ The band was inspired by recent tour mates, and '70s hard-rock legends, Thin Lizzy, and here it shows most. The call-and-response hook and gritty riffing are proof Clutch doesn't need to pander to fans or a major label (Weathermaker Music is owned by the band).”  

--Wesley Case, BALTIMORE SUN, (Mar 15, 2013)

Clutch, the hard-touring Maryland band with an endless supply of guitar riffs, is back on the righteous path of heavy rock... Earth Rocker is Clutch's hardest-hitting album in a while, and it's full of Fallon's occasionally inscrutable, fantastical sci-fi themes. There are references to Guttenberg, the Large Hadron Collider and the medieval weapon the halberd--and that's just in one song (‘Unto the Breach’). ‘The Face’ imagines a post-apocalyptic pop culture landscape where rock is dead and electric guitars have been cast into the sea. On ‘Cyborg Bette,’ our rock-star narrator falls for a robot, his ‘latest model’. A welcome return to form.”

--Christopher Weber, SEATTLE TIMES (Mar 18, 2013)

’Earth Rocker’will leave you battered and bruised from the relentless rhythm, vibe and energy. …The record is so UP, so groove ridden that words are not adequate to describe it. There is no filler here. There are no weak moments. There is nothing wasted. There is not a lyric, not a riff, not even a cymbal crash that is out of place.  Clutch are better musicians than most, but they are a much better band than just about everybody (there is a crucial difference). What an album it is.”

--Richard Maw, THE SLUDGELORD, (Mar. 24, 2013)

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY: Drummer Reed Mullin Forced To Sit Out Live Dates



Due to a torn rotator cuff, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY drummer Reed Mullin has been forced to sit out the band's upcoming live dates.


Reads an official statement from the band: "We are sorry to announce that Reed Mullin will not be onboard for this tour. He's been playing through pain, awaiting a strategic time to repair a full tear of his rotator cuff. That's a seriously bum shoulder. So he's going to get that repaired and rehabbed. During the interim, we're enlisted Mr. Eric Hernandez formerly of Kylesa to help us until then. Eric came to our attention when we approached Rick Smith of Torche about filling in and he recommended Eric, who he grew up with in Miami. Eric has also filled in for Ricky in Torche a few times with great results. He is, like Reed, a hard hitter, and thankfully possesses the capacity to learn and digest detailed material quickly and accurately."


CORROSION OF CONFORMITY is currently leveling the stages of New Zealand and Australia which will be followed by a two-week North American run scheduled to commence on August 20th in Spokane, and come to a close in Vancouver on September 1st. The band will be joined by Bl'ast!, Brant Bjork & The Low Desert Punk Band and Lord Dying.


CORROSION OF CONFORMITY [remaining dates]:

7/24/2014 Crowbar - Brisbane, AUS
7/25/2014 NSC - Sydney AUS
7/26/2014 Reverence Hotel - Melbourne AUS

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY released their fittingly titled IX full-length earlier this month via Candlelight Records. Captured by the band alongside long-time friend and colleague John Custer, IX clocks in at nearly forty-five minutes. Sludge, doom, punk... it's all in the grooves that fans have come to expect from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY. If you missed it, check out the lyric video for "Tarquinius Superbus" at THIS LOCATION.  


"COC stick to the recipe that served them well on both 2012's self-titled reboot and the follow-up EP, Megalodon: A little hardcore, a little crossover, a whole lotta Southern rock and (especially) doom metal, all stirred, shuffled, layered and frosted in ways that make guessing their next move impossible. But the band's strategies are more expansive this time out, their tricks more finely woven into the fabric of each song." - Decibel


"The album's production is full with plenty of low end, showcasing the thick riffs and potent rhythm section. Clocking in at just over forty-two-minutes, the band delivers the goods and doesn't overstay their welcome." - Loudwire


"...smoke-wreathed grooves and sludgy rushes of belligerence, the album is a meat-and-potatoes feast." - A.V. Club


"This band is vital, this record a triumph." - The Obelisk




LAMB OF GOD’s Chris Adler Announces Partnership with Big Whisky Grill in Richmond, VA – Opening Soon!

Big Whisky Grill is Set to Feature a Selection of Over 2000 Spirits, 150 Craft Beers, a 200-Bottle Wine Selection & a High-End Cigar Room

 NEW in Richmond - Featuring Two Fully Functioning Kitchens to Accommodate for Allergy/Dietary Restrictions/Needs




Metalheads know that heavy metal and whiskey go hand-in-hand. So, it comes as no surprise that Chris Adler of LAMB OF GOD – heralded drummer for one of the biggest metal bands in the biz – is proudly announcing his new partnership with Richmond-restaurant owner Will “Mac” McCormack to open the Big Whisky Grill near the West End of Richmond, VA!

The original Whisky Grill is located in the Richmond Fan District but is too small to accommodate their growing demand. Adler and McCormack’s brand new Big Whisky Grill will hold up to 600 people – making this a perfect location to visit on your next heavy metal road trip!

Adler is looking forward to turning his passion into a reality. “Anyone that knows me knows I’m not good at sitting still. The down time has been a great way for us to reconnect with family and friends, and in doing so, I’ve found myself in a position to keep pushing. I’ve partnered up with my good buddy Mac to open one of the largest and extensive Whisky bars in the nation. We are building out now and the ideas in process are incredible.”

The Big Whisky Grill is set to open in October and will offer a selection of over 2000 spirits – 700-bottle whiskey selection, 150 craft beers and a 200-bottle wine selection. Adler and McCormack are also working with Henrico County health officials to offer a high-end Cigar room within the 11,000 sq. ft. footprint of the restaurant.

Adler is most proud of their unique two-kitchen system, allowing them the ability to safely serve patrons with any and all food allergies or dietary restrictions (GF, V, VO). This concept is all but absent in the Richmond area and is a much needed option for many diners.

“One of the most important details for me outside of the incredible Whisky collection is the idea of two kitchens, with one sterilized to serve specialized diet and allergy needs. My wife has suffered from severe food allergies for her entire life and has never been able to comfortably dine out – and she’s not alone. I’m driven to create a safe environment for any dietary concern, choice or not.”

Adler continues, “I won’t be in the back behind a purple rope holding court, I’ll be behind the bar serving up the gold. We are stoked and hope to create a friendly and classy place for our community and visitors from all around.”

Los Angeles, California – July 16, 2014 - Guns N' Roses concert film, Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live at the Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas, released on July 1, 2014 by Universal Music Enterprises, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Music DVD chart last week and remains at the No. 1 position for its second week in a row. Clocking in at just under three hours, the band's explosive set includes all of their biggest hits and classic GNR staples.

Available now in North America on Blu-ray™ featuring the complete concert film in both 3D and 2D plus an interactive 3D photo gallery, and standard DVD featuring the 2D version of the film. Both releases are mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound and feature bonus interviews with the band. The GN'R Appetite For Democracy Official App (IOS/Android) brings the concert experience to a new level by connecting GNR directly with their fans, allowing fans to connect with each other via social media, buy exclusive merchandise, check tour/cinema dates for the movie, preview digital tracks of the film; and purchase or stream via VOD the digital long form concert.     

Produced by Rock Fuel Media's Barry Summers, Appetite For Democracy 3D is the first official Guns N' Roses live concert film since 1992's Use Your Illusion concert video and features brand new live performances of classic GNR tracks including "Welcome To The Jungle," "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Mr. Brownstone," "Paradise City," "Nightrain," "It's So Easy" and "Rocket Queen," from their pivotal, 1987 No. 1 debut album Appetite For Destruction; "Patience" and "Used To Love Her" from 1988's No. 2 charting album Lies; "November Rain," "Don't Cry," "Civil War" as well as the band's signature versions of Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" and Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door;" powerful renditions of The Who's "The Seeker" and Pink Floyd's "Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2;" and much, much more.  

In 1987 Guns N' Roses burst onto the hard rock scene and, with their punk rock ethics and an uncompromising, explosive sound, turned a scene filled with synth-pop and hair-metal on its end, propelling the band to the top of the charts. Filling stadiums and arenas across the globe, much like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Sex Pistols, Guns N' Roses wrote their own chapter in rock and roll history and continue to make their own rules.

Now, celebrated worldwide as one of the most important rock acts in music history, Guns N' Roses are Axl Rose, DJ Ashba (guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass), Richard Fortus (guitar), Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (guitar), Chris Pitman (keyboards) and Frank Ferrer (drums). Guns N' Roses continue on their sold-out global arena tour, with shows in the US, Europe, visits to Latin America and multiple festivals, having played to millions of fans around the globe.

July 14, 2014 -- When RICHIE KOTZEN plays his guitar, you know it’s him.  The guitar virtuoso, singer and songwriter possesses an inimitable style that’s both instantly recognizable and immediately striking.  This unique style courses through THE ESSENTIAL RICHIE KOTZEN, a career retrospective collection set for release September 2 on Loud & Proud Records.  It encompasses this iconic talent’s entire career of his most essential work and includes two CDs of classic material, acoustic performances, bootleg material and two brand new songs (“War Paint” and “Walk With Me”), and a DVD of music videos, acoustic performances and bootleg material.  A three-song sampler, including the two new songs along with “Lie To Me,” is being serviced to rock radio stations later this month.  Fans can pre-order the album at http://bit.ly/1oXRsUX.
KOTZEN personally curated THE ESSENTIAL RICHIE KOTZEN from his 18 solo albums in order to give listeners the most comprehensive, cohesive and concise introduction to his extensive body of work.  “I’ve really changed and grown as an artist and as a person,” he says.  “I hand-selected songs so newcomers can get into my music and learn who I am as a recording artist.”
“War Paint” builds from an opening bluesy riff into a bombastic chorus punctuated by KOTZEN’s gravelly delivery and impeccable lead playing.  He explains, “It was a challenge to make a studio recording sound like a live band with only one musician playing all the instruments.  I think I accomplished that on this track.”  At the same time, “Walk With Me” sees KOTZEN evolving once more and incorporating a Theremin, an antique electronic instrument, into an emotive and engaging anthem.  “There was a specific sound I was hearing in the song,” he reveals.  “I realized it was a Theremin, so I bought one.  I spent a couple of weeks learning it.  I used that where the lead guitar would normally go.  It was a really rewarding departure for me.”
With his guitar styles ranging from rock, blues, jazz and fusion to pop and soul, RICHIE KOTZEN has built a remarkably diverse 20 year career as a guitarist, singer and songwriter.  During that span, KOTZEN toured with his trio extensively outside the United States, building a loyal fan base and selling out shows throughout Europe, Latin America, and Japan.  In 1996, Fender guitars honored him with not one, but two signature model guitars.  His signature model Telecaster is available worldwide and continues to be a top seller for the brand.  In 2006, KOTZEN received one of his biggest personal honors when The Rolling Stones chose him to open up a string of Japanese shows placing him in front of some of his biggest crowds to date.  He has not only built an incredibly successful solo career, but has also found himself writing, recording and playing live with a variety of different artists, including Jazz legends Stanley Clarke and Lenny White.  He currently plays guitar and fronts the band The Winery Dogs with bassist Billy Sheehan and drummer Mike Portnoy (the band’s self-titled debut album debuted at #27 on the Billboard “Top 200 Albums” chart).   
With his 20th full-length solo album on the horizon for 2015 as well as countless gigs, RICHIE KOTZEN’s legacy is only continuing to expand.  “When you perform, record or write, you go to a different place,” he concludes.  “It’s another world. I love hearing people react to the music and lyrics.  That’s the ultimate reward.”
Stay tuned for solo touring news, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

Texas Speed/Thrash Metal Pioneers RIGOR MORTIS Announce the Long Awaited Release of Their Final Album
Slave to the Grave
to the Grave


Available October 7th - Artwork and Track Listing Revealed

"RIGOR MORTIS back with an LP with Bruce Corbitt on vocals is fantastic.  His era is 'RIGOR' which is my favorite of all time because that's what I grew up seeing before my very eyes, and to this day is one of my favorite bands.  This new offering will not, and cannot disappoint any hardcore 'RIGOR' fan!  It's impossible!  Every element, and then some, are shredded throughout this record.... Hail RIGOR MORTIS!

RIP The GREAT Mike Scaccia!!!!"


-Phillip H. Anselmo- 

Twenty-Three years after their last record, and nineteen months after the tragic loss of guitarist Mike Scaccia, DFW TX Speed/Thrash Metal pioneers, RIGOR MORTIS, announce the long awaited release of their fourth and final studio album - Slaves to the Grave (Due October 7th via Rigor Mortis Records). This marks the bands first studio album in 23 years, and the first with the classic original line up (Mike Scaccia - guitar, Casey Orr - Bass, Bruce Corbitt - Vocals, and Harden Harrison on drums), since their 1988 eponymous debut album. Recorded less than a year before Mike's passing, STTG was to going to herald the bands long overdue comeback. In February 2012, RIGOR MORTIS entered Ministry's 13th Planet Studios in El Paso, and recorded the 10 tracks that would become Slaves to the Grave.  Today the track listing and cover artwork have been revealed.  The artwork was done Michael Broom.

When no labels were willing to release the record (after all there would be no touring to support it, or follow up record), they decided to release it themselves. With no money, they started a fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo. They called in favors from their friends to get the record mixed and mastered just right and get the cover art just the way they envisioned it. They decided to add a behind the scenes "making of" DVD to the initial pressing, and to release it on vinyl. They are all very proud of this record and the history that surrounds it. They have endeavored every step of the way to do justice to the RIGOR MORTIS legacy, and bring honor to Mike Scacciaʼs last recorded testament. We think he'd be proud.

The subject matter hasn't strayed much. Twisted tales of horror and woe, monsters and madmen, warfare and plague abound! The tracks are fast and heavy as one would expect, but there is also a maturity and growth that only comes with age and experience. Musically, STTG draws from a legacy of brutal influence. The Speed and Thrash Metal that RIGOR MORTIS cut their teeth on is evident throughout the record in the intensity and velocity of tracks like "Flesh For Flies", but also, one could argue, are influences such as Italian horror soundtracks by Goblin, as heard on the outro solo of "Poltergeist". While STTG was very much a group effort, and all four came together like a fist to crush all doubt, It has to be said, of course, that the highlight of this record, and indeed RIGOR MORTIS as a whole musically, is Mike Scacciaʼs incredible guitar playing. His freakish speed picking and beautiful sense of melody is mesmerizing. His solos are stupefying. Mikes style was much closer to Paganini, than to say, Mustaine or Dimebag. He was unique.

Without question, this record contains some of Mike's finest work. In his zone and with no restraints, he delivered some absolutely stellar performances. His solo at the end of "Blood Bath", for instance, is absolutely breathtaking, exposing more heart and soul than precious few of his contemporaries possess. RIGOR MORTIS dedicates this record to Mike Scaccia 1965-2012.

Produced by Mike Scaccia and RIGOR MORTIS

RIGOR MORTIS first hit the national scene in 1987 by becoming, arguably, the first underground Heavy Metal band to ever be signed by a major label. Though the relationship with Capitol Records didnʼt last long (the label simply didnʼt know what to do with such an intense group), the band managed to make a stir and indelibly leave their mark. Their 1988 debut record, RIGOR MORTIS (Capitol), has since become legendary in the thrash/speed metal community, influencing not only bands like Toxic Holocaust and Goatwhore, but also motivating Ministry to leave the disco for the Metal arena. Ministry would then, of course, influence everything from NIN to Marilyn Manson and Slipknot.

The members of RIGOR would remain friends through thick and thin throughout the years, but it wasn't until 2005 that talk of reuniting started becoming serious. There were still other commitments, but they did manage to play quite a few shows, including Ozzfest 2008, and Germany's Keep It True Festival in 2009. In Feb. 2012 all the pieces finally came together and RIGOR MORTIS entered the studio to record what was to be their comeback record. Older and wiser, and all in a good place with their personal lives, there was an excitement in the air not felt since 1987. RIGOR MORTIS had finally come full circle.

Then, on December 22nd, 2012, it all came to a halt. The band was playing their home town club in Ft Worth, in celebration of Bruce's 50th birthday, when midway through the set, Mike Scaccia suffered a massive heart attack and collapsed on stage. He could not be revived and was pronounced dead shortly after midnight. RIGOR MORTIS was over. Though it was never discussed, they all knew there could be no RM without Mike. But the album was recorded and almost finished. And as fate would have it, just days before he died, Mike went into the studio and put the finishing touches on all of his parts, effectively enabling the guys to complete the record, knowing that Mike was happy with it. But it's been a hard record to finish, mostly because it's simply hard to let it go. It's become such a labor of love for all involved.

Two special shows in support of the album have been announced including a CD Release Party and an appearance at the Housecore Horror Film Fest:



Saturday Sept 27th - Curtain Club- Dallas, TX

Featuring Dead Horse, Wizards of Gore (RIGOR MORTIS), Dead Earth Politics, and more tba. The new RIGOR MORTIS record will be available for purchase at this show.



Oct. 23rd - 26th - Emo's - Austin, TX


The second annual event boasts underground and classic horror screenings and merch, full reunion of cast from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as a great line up of bands like Wizards Of Gore (RIGOR MORTIS), Warbeast, Portal, Randy Blythe, Satyricon, Eyehategod, Cattle Decapitation, Unearth, Acid Witch, and many more

Get Ready! STOLEN BABIES Are Writing New Music + New International Performances Announced


Vocalist Dominique Lenore Persi Announces Involvement in Devin Townsend’s “Ziltoid 2”





On the heels of the recent cancellation of their Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin tour (originally set to begin next week – cancelled by Goblin due to contractual issues), experimental band STOLEN BABIES have a few new things to announce to their devoted fans!


On August 22nd, the band will take their very first trip down to Mexico City to perform at El Plaza Condesa for a special performance with Rhapsody. Then on September 13th, STOLEN BABIES will perform a one-off show in their home-area of Los Angeles, CA at Bar Sinister. For a full listing of confirmed tour dates, visit www.stolenbabiestheband.com.


Dominique has been very busy lately, specifically lending her vocals to a track on the upcoming Ziltoid 2 album from progressive metal mastermind Devin Townsend. Expect more details to be announced soon from the Devin Townsend camp.


As a band, STOLEN BABIES are currently working on new music. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!



Experimental band STOLEN BABIES fuse avant-garde-twisted rock, metal, punk, and theatrical influences with the peculiar image of what (to an unprepared onlooker) may seem like an eccentric Tim Burton-themed after-hours club house band on happy pills. The amalgamation of these ridiculously entertaining visuals with their unforgettable music have solidified STOLEN BABIES’ place in the world of aggressive rock – landing them on tours with internationally recognized groups such as Stone Sour, Lacuna Coil and Sevendust, as well as equally unconventional yet acclaimed artists like Devin Townsend and Otep.


Check out the STOLEN BABIES’ latest music video for the track ‘Second Sleep’. The video was directed by Ilan Sharone, well-known video director and brother of Rani and Gil, with visual FX and animation by Meats Meier. The track is cut from the band’s most recent full-length release, entitled Naught. The album is available at your local music retailer and through iTunes, Amazon and all other standard digital retailers.

Five songs, no filler, all sorts of post-metal power not heard of since the battle flag of Neurosis was picked up by Boston natives ISIS and later Cult of Luna."- Boston Phoenix


"This is one of the best Post-Metal releases I have heard since ISIS landmark classic - OCEANIC and VYGR's Hypersleep." - The Sludgelord


"I have no doubt that Beak will become a force to be reckoned with in the post-metal scene." - Heavymetal.about.com

"Chicago post-metal party crashers have songwriting acumen and hardcore bent that Neur-Isis copycats sorely lack." - Spin Magazine

Beak, the Chicago post-metal quartet who wowed critics with their 2012 debut EP, Eyrie, return with their first full-length, Let Time Begin, on Sept. 23 via Someoddpilot Records.


"Let Time Begin is the Big Bang, The Fall of Man, The Unnamable; it's our interpretation of the origins of the Universe," says Beak singer/guitar player Jon Slusher. The eight-song album moves from chaos to the birth of consciousness. "It is a concept record that evolves sonically from Eyrie with more concise composition and a new pallet of alternating violence, tranquility and melody. We ramped up the primal and pounding rhythm section, we've appropriated vocoding into the mix and we have pioneered new ways to tear out our throats."


Beak's debut EP, Eyrie, received widespread recognition, with the Boston Phoenix saying: "all sorts of post-metal power not heard of since the battle flag of Neurosis was picked up by Boston natives Isis and later Cult of Luna" and The Sludgelord saying "this is one of the best post-metal releases I have heard since ISIS' landmark classic - Oceanic and VYGR's Hypersleep." Spin said the "Chicago post-metal party crashers have songwriting acumen and hardcore bent that 2006's Neur-Isis copycats sorely lack."


Let Time Begin was recorded at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studio and John McEntire's (Tortoise, The Sea and The Cake) Soma Studios, both in Chicago. The band self-produced the new release. 


Let Time Begin track listing: 


  1. Souls in Streams
  2. Light Outside
  3. The Breath of Universe
  4. Let Time Begin
  5. Into The Light
  6. Carry A Fire
  7. Over The Shelter, The Morning Breaks

ACCEPT Debut "Stampede" Music Video

Metal Legends to Release New Album Blind Rage August 19

Exclusive Live Dates in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York City Announced!
"viscerally thrilling...Accept does not base its music on the meditative impulse; instead it radiates activity and action." - THE NEW YORK TIMES



   Heavy Metal legends ACCEPT will release their new album Blind Rage on August 19 via Nuclear Blast Records. The influential group's 14th studio album was produced by renowned audio engineer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Napalm Death, Opeth) and is the follow-up to 2012's "Stalingrad", which debuted at #81 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was hailed as "brilliant" and a record that "the traditional metalhead will really cherish"  by Goldmine.

   The first single from Blind Rage
is the red hot album opener "Stampede". Today, ACCEPT premieres a video for the hard-charging track, filmed on location in the high desert of California at the Devil’s Punchbowl (a rock formation that looks like it’s from another world) with director Greg Aronowitz (Batman & Robin, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, The Lost World: Jurassic Park), the "Stampede" video features ACCEPT unleashing blistering heavy metal from the mountaintops against an absolutely amazing natural backdrop and wide-spanning horizon. Check out the thin air clip now at this location!

     "It’s a hard pounding thrash of a song with a riff that has a heart going back to “Fast as a Shark," says Emmy-Nominated production designer and director Dave Blass, who also worked on the out of the ordinary "Stampede" shoot. "Watching the new sun glint off of Wolf Hoffman’s custom silver Framus guitar as he launches into his solo 200 feet in the air above a nasty crevasse made it all worth it." 
WATCH: ACCEPT "Stampede" (YouTube)





     Blind Rage Track listing:

     1.) Stampede

     2.) Dying Breed   
     3.) Dark Side of My Heart
     4.) Fall of the Empire   
     5.) Trail of Tears
