KING LEVIATHAN Release "The Shrine"

KING LEVIATHAN of Brighton England, devout worshipers of Speed, Violence and The Occult, have spread madness from their inception. With their new EP "The Shrine" about to hit May 31st there is no sign of stopping. With "The Shrine", every second of speed, aggression, and riotous fun is to be savored. KING LEVIATHAN liberally blends many different styles of Metal and Hardcore into an intense, fiery stew. Riffs with roots firmly planted in the great American Thrash and European Metal traditions peel out of every single song, bolstered by a rhythm section, and featuring solid drumming, that is relentless.The frenetic pace so characteristic of the genre is kept the entire way, the delivery tight, yet not without the feeling of spontaneity. Creating images of the house that you and your beer-bong buddies proceeded to trash when the neighbor kid's parents left for the weekend. 
The follow-up to their self-titled 2014 debut, this new 5 track offering "THE SHRINE" is a marked step forward for the four piece and was recorded over a week long period at Brighton Electric with Producer Paul "Win" Winstanley at the helm.

"We knew we wanted the next E.P to be bigger and better in all aspects – and Win’s work with ‘Sea Bastard’, ‘Whitemare’ and early ‘Black Peaks’ stuff really impressed us! So we hit the studio, and before we knew it we were smashing beer kegs with hammers, scoring violin stabs and laying down choir vocals… Nuts!” says the band

You can catch KING LEVIATHAN this summer, letting it rip at one of Europe's largest Metal Fests BLOODSTOCK 2015 and in October at MAMMOTHFEST 2015

SOME REVIEWS:
8/10 "Overall an excellent EP that will provide a way up the metal music ladder; if you fancy hearing Thrash with Death and Black thrown into the cauldron pot KING LEVIATHAN would be the band to turn to, this EP definitely shows us what they aim to bring" - Metal-Temple.com

8/10 "Whether you worship Thrash, Death or Power Metal, King Leviathan cater for all! - WorshipMetal.com

"The have really brandished their signature sound into these callous clever gifts for ‘the old gods’ as the band say! Accept and embrace these well-crafted offerings and bring forth their inevitable new masses of deranged worshipers!" - Carinas Music Reviews

DragonForce "In the Line of Fire" DVD to be released in July!

Multi-national metal maestro's DragonForce have announced the worldwide release of their debut DVD entitled "In the Line of Fire." The release is scheduled for July 10th and features high definition footage shot during the band's Ultimate Stage headline show at 2014's Loud Park Festival in the Saitama Super Arena, Japan, the band used multiple camera angles to capture the raw energy of their show and instrumental dexterity for which they are rightly celebrated worldwide. Watch the trailer for "In the Line of Fire" and pre-order your copy now at metalblade.com/dragonforce.

The track listing below features a selection of new songs from the latest album "Maximum Overload" mixed in with foot stomping anthems and lightning fast shred-fests from previous releases. The video also includes backstage, behind the scenes, and off tour footage to give fans an insight into the Maximum Overload World Tour.



"In the Line of Fire" track listing:
Fury of the Storm
Three Hammers
Black Winter Night
Tomorrow's Kings
Seasons
Symphony of the Night
Cry Thunder
Ring of Fire
Through the Fire and the Flames
Valley of the Damned

Mix and Mastered by Damien Rainaud in Los Angeles, CA. Produced and edited by Herman Li.

DragonForce are currently on the Maximum Overload World Tour, which commenced in September 2014 and is due to conclude in 2016. Throughout their six studio album and multiple world tour history, DF have steadfastly refused to shoot a DVD, until now. Guitarist Herman Li explains, "We always held the opinion that if we ever did a DVD we wanted to do it properly. Now, having released six studio albums we thought we had a great cross section of material to pick from and we knew the facilities at Loud Park made it a great place to film a show. Everything just came together and we're very pleased with the results and hope the fans will be also."

A snapshot of the DVD can be seen by checking out the just released second music video from 'Maximum Overload'; a storming version of 'Three Hammers' which was shot at the same show! Watch "Three Hammers" now at youtube.com/DragonForce. The release will be a double disc package of the DVD and accompanying Live Audio CD of the show and will also be available in Blu-Ray.

RIVAL SONS announced as special guests for DEEP PURPLE European tour

Long Beach, California's RIVAL SONS have been announced as special guests for a European tour with British rock legends DEEP PURPLE.

The tour follows an impressive list of achievements for RIVAL SONS, whose latest album, 'Great Western Valkyrie' stormed into the charts around the world on its release.  It was rated the number one album of 2014 by Classic Rock magazine in a year which also saw the band gain high-profile TV slots on Late Night with David Letterman and Later... with Jools Holland.

The five-and-a-half week tour includes a special show at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday, 3rd December.  Tickets are available from http://www.livenation.co.uk or http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk

RIVAL SONS guitarist Scott Holiday comments:
"There's only so many bands that can ACTUALLY occupy the limited space reserved for what we call LEGENDS (a term thrown around far too loosely these days).  A band we can say without a doubt occupy this space comfortably is Deep Purple.  I cut my teeth on those early records... Machine Head, In Rock, Made in Japan etc.  The musicianship, performances and sheer bravado is nothing short of LEVELING.  Getting asked to jump on tour with 'em?  Crazy, crazy cool.  Elated.  Honored.  We're gonna have a blast watching these guys every night... but we're gonna have an even better time burning that shit down and giving those audiences a little bit of our rock 'n' roll every night.  See ya out there."

THE RODS release new single featuring BENEDICTUM vocalist Veronica Freeman.

American 80's heavy metal power trio THE RODS have announced the release of their brand new single "Smoke on the Horizon", featuring BENEDICTUM vocalist Veronica Freeman "The V".
"Smoke on the Horizon" will be available for purchase worldwide via itunes and all digital media outlets on May 14, 2015.


The Rods band members and The V have released the following statements on the joining of forces for this new recording project and upcoming tour dates:

(Guitarist David "Rock" Feinstein) - Garry had let Carl and I know that he had made friends with Veronica some months ago. After a while he began playing her recordings for us, and we knew after hearing them, that she had a very good voice. Her original music is very good, but quite different than the traditional RODS style, and her voice is powerful with a true "Heavy Metal" edge to it. Soon Garry suggested that maybe she could come and sit in with us to sing a couple of songs. She had already been doing some DIO covers, so we thought that would be a perfect fit. We have a great time playing the DIO songs, and Veronica does an excellent job of singing them. A guest performer is something different for us, but so far it has been great fun, and I think the fans will really love it.

(Drummer / Producer - Carl Canedy) - Veronica Freeman has a truly powerful voice! After a killer warm-up show with her in Auburn, NY, it struck me that it would be a shame to not document this merging of talents with a studio recording. David's song, Smoke on the Horizon, seemed like a perfect fit. We were able to record this song very quickly during Veronica's visit and I think the fans will be surprised and pleased with the outcome. The "V" will also be joining The Rods for their European dates performing a set of Classic Dio and Black Sabbath songs.

(Bassist Garry Bordonaro) - I met Veronica “The V” Freeman through friends, musical connections. During a trip to Phoenix to visit family, I asked her to meet me at a Y&T show. Unfortunately, because of some communication snafus (my fault), she went to the show and I didn’t. The exchanges following that regrettable incident convinced me that she and I had a lot to talk about. On later visits we did meet and spent some time together, and had a lot of good times. We have a real friendship, and have often talked about working together on a project. After hearing early mixes of her new album, it was clear that she deserved exposure to a wider audience. We discussed having her come with us on our European dates, and Carl and Rock agreed to bring her along. We thought it would be fun working with her, and to have a female singer in front of the band, something we have not done before. We decided to play Dio songs because we all know and enjoy playing them, and really didn’t have time to work up her new material. We also put together a quick recording session for a new version of Rock’s song “Smoke On The Horizon” to document this collaboration and get her on the news pages. I think Rods fans and Benedictum fans will have a blast seeing her perform with us, and will really like her new material when it’s released this summer. At least we are going to have a lot of fun doing it!

(Vocalist Veronica Freeman "The V") - After having met Garry in person I knew I had a friend for life! We clicked on a lot of levels. I felt comfortable enough to share some of the solo material with him and was blown away by his reaction.
The series of events that followed have been exciting and rather unbelievable for me. Next thing you know I am meeting the entire band for the first time, doing photo shoots and then bam, in the studio to record “Smoke on the Horizon” then a show and soon we head out for some shows in Europe! It was like a mini whirlwind and I survived it lol.Now we go to Europe and I am beyond excited. The guys are great and things just seem to be falling into place. I love it!

The Rods will feature a guest performance from BENEDICTUM vocalist Veronica Freeman, ("The V") during selective upcoming European shows.
European shows featuring "The V".
May 23 - Heavy Sound Festival - Poperinge, Belgium - ++
May 25 - Sounds - Lubeck, Germany - ++
May 28 - Muskelrock Festival, Tyrolen, Sweden - ++

The Rods will be on the road promoting their latest single as well as performing classic songs from their entire album catalog.

Danish Speed Metallers ENCYRCLE Releasing Debut on Unspeakable Axe Records June 2 / Exclusive Track Stream

Danish speed metallers ENCYRCLE will release their self-titled debut album June 2 on Unspeakable Axe Records. Check out New Noise Magazine's exclusive stream of "Bloodbasker" at this location.


ENCYRCLE is the kind of band that could make a true believer of even the most jaded modern metalhead.  Hard-charging speed metal is juiced up further with black metal-esque blast beats, while the guitar solos and vocals are derived entirely from the oldest of old schools: melodic, powerful, and way over the top.  They call what they do "Nocturnal Speed Metal" - which is the kind of label that suggests that they are not married wholly to any one genre, while still planting their roots in the recognizable.  With a professional and powerful sound, and a grasp of songwriting and riffcraft that is well above the norm, ENCYRCLE aims to destroy when the album arrives on June 2, 2015 from Unspeakable Axe Records and Dark Descent.


1. Chronoboros
2. To the End
3. Evoke the Night
4. Bloodbasker
5. Entrance
6. Dizzy me Deadly
7. Serpent's Dream
8. Deathlust
9. Facelasher
10. Black Dust
11. Obliteration Eyes


THE GATE IS OPEN, THE CIRCLE'S FIRE IS RAGING 
A pregnant serpent slithered through the night, and in the sleepless summer of 2012, ENCYRCLE was born. Inspired by the wild magic of the broken circle, the Danish band plays their own brand of 'nocturnal speed metal' that opens the door into the wilderness of the soul. Despite having strong roots in the old school of metal, the band thrusts a knife deep into the heart of conservative genre expectations and freely rides its own wave. Their self-titled debut album will deliver an unpredictable mixture of fierce melancholy and doomy razorblade shredding.

GWAR Announces "30 Years of Total World Domination Tour"

Thirty years have passed since GWAR awoke from the prison of their Antarctic slumber in 1985. Since that time, the band has used broadswords and guitars to shape the music and culture of mankind. 30 years later, the world sucks more than it ever has, and humans have GWAR to thank! Three decades of bloodlust, throttling the life from humanity, and perverting the human imagination have left no doubt that GWAR rules supreme!

What better way to celebrate this momentous occasion than with a spectacular victory lap bringing death and depravity to cities across America? GWAR's "30 Years of Total Domination Tour" is a celebration of unimaginable torment. Expect more blood and bodily fluids than ever before as your Lords and Masters take on the newest threat to their very existence - the Internet! That's right, GWAR is going to kick the Internet's ass; if they can ever stop jerking off to porn long enough to find it. Pustulus is none too pleased about the situation, having this to say while "taking 5" from his weekly schedule of drawing dicks on bible pages.

"I've survived prisons, gulags, religious protests, surfing a crucial wave on D-Day, and even an ISIS spaghetti dinner, so this is nothing. Bring it on! GWAR is coming! Where is Baltimore?"

Support on the tour will come from Butcher Babies and Battlecross. The tour kicks off August 25th in Millvale, PA and wraps up September 18th in Rochester, NY. Tickets go on sale this Friday May 1st for all shows!
