GHØSTKID – Release “START A FIGHT” Song and Video

GHØSTKID’s music is a dive into darkness and aggression. It’s ugly yet beautiful, it’s heavy while keeping a sense for catchy melodies.

GHØSTKID is the new moniker of Sebastian „Sushi“ Biesler (formerly Eskimo Callboy) who gathered a group of likeminded friends to shape the project: Steve Joakim (drums) from Sweden as well as Danny Güldener (guitar) and Stanislaw Czywil (bass) who used to play in To The Rats And Wolves.

Check out the first song and video, “START A FIGHT”, under the following link: https://youtu.be/XJbCnkFv0H4

The song is a refreshing mix of contemporary heavy music coming with an irresistible mid-tempo stomp and memorable melodies. The band decided to introduce themselves with an energetic performance video that is giving you a taste and visual idea of the things to come.

Sushi further comments:

“Life can be hard sometimes and not always easy to navigate. This song is a personal representation of how I was feeling while going through some very hard times. I was feeling like a ticking time bomb every second of the day and “Start A Fight” is the moment I said to myself, enough is enough!”

“START A FIGHT” is taken from their self-titled album that was produced by renowned producer Sky van Hoff (Rammstein, Emigrate etc.) and that is scheduled for a release in November of 2020. It is just the beginning of a trip into the audio-visual realm of GHØSTKID who will have a few surprises up his sleeve.

Expect the unexpected!

Joachim Witt Sommerkonzerte 2020

Joachim Witt kündigt zwei exklusive Open Air Sommerkonzerte im August in Hamburg und Leipzig an!

Joachim Witt ist „Rübezahl“ - launisch, temperamentvoll, rigoros, stolz und unvorhersehbar wie ein musikalischer Sturm!

Auf dem gleichnamigen Album und dem aktuellen Release „Rübezahls Rückkehr“ überzeugt Joachim Witt mit atemberaubenden Arrangements auf einzigartige Weise sein Publikum und sorgt für Gänsehautmomente. Erneut von Chris Harms (Lord of the Lost) produziert, vereint das neue Album "Rübezahls Rückkehr" wie schon sein Vorgänger „Rübezahl“ die Stimme von Witt mit wuchtigen Soundwänden zu einer donnernden Atmosphäre und erbaut eine Klangkathedrale von unglaublicher Intensität. Ein monumentaler Sound, der in dieser Verbindung wohl einzigartig ist.

Nun  kündigt der Ausnahmekünstler eine ganz besondere Konzertreihe an:

29.08.2020 Leipzig – Parkbühne

30.08.2020 Hamburg – Cruise Inn

Joachim Witt kehrt dabei im August für zwei exklusive Open Air Shows in Hamburg und Leipzig wieder in voller Bandbesetzung zurück und lässt die Bühnen erbeben mit einem mächtigen Klanggewitter, passend zum Sound von „Rübezahl“ und „Rübezahls Rückkehr“. Dabei wird  Witt ausgewählte Songs beider Alben präsentieren, anders als bei der kommenden Tour im Frühjahr 2021, die dann wieder  komplett im Zeichen des aktuellen Albums stehen wird.

Achtung: Die Konzert Locations sind bestuhlt und der Kartenverkauf ist limitiert! Alle Corona-Maßnahmen werden strikt eingehalten!

Ihr dürft Euch wieder auf einzigartige Konzertabende mit dem Meister freuen!

Der Ticket-Vorverkauf startet am 29.07.2020 um 15 Uhr.

Als Special Guest wurden die jungen Label-Kollegen von Storm Seeker eingeladen, die der Tage ihr Debut-Album Beneath in the Cold veröffentlicht haben.

JOE BOUCHARD (Founding Member Of Blue Öyster Cult) will release the Album

For the last two years, Joe has worked tirelessly on his 6th and best solo album. For the production of this album he enlisted the help of Micky Curry, a drumming powerhouse, who has played with Hall and Oates, Alice Cooper and more. He is currently the drummer for Bryan Adams, playing on all of his big hits. He has over 40 gold records in his archives.

Several of the songs were written by Joe Bouchard and lyricist/sci-fi writer John Shirley. John Shirley is a long-time lyricist for Blue Öyster Cult, and has written dozens of sci-fi novels. He was the co-screenwriter for ‘The Crow,’ starring Brandon Lee. Other songs on the album were written by the late John Elwood Cook, a very prolific songwriter, who wrote many songs on Joe’s earlier solo albums. Joe’s album also includes a cover of Ray Davies and the Kinks’ “All Day and All of the Night.”

Take a Look @ the Official Music Video " Forget about Love " from the upcoming Album :

Artefuckt !

Ehrlicher, vollkommen authentischer und deutschsprachiger Rock. Das ist es, was uns bei „Artefuckt“, der vierköpfigen Band rund um Frontmann André Donay geboten wird. Nicht mehr und definitiv nicht weniger! 

Nach dem erfolgreichen Debütalbum „Manifest“ und dem Nachfolger „Stigma“, welches einen nahezu unglaublichen, aber verdienten, Platz #5 in den offiziellen deutschen LP Charts erreichte, sowie nach zwei nahezu ausverkauften Headliner-Touren und unzähligen Festival-Gigs, kündigt sich mit GEMINI nun das dritte Werk aus dem Hause „Artefuckt“ an.
Was erwartet uns bei GEMINI ?

Wie auch bei den Vorgängern, erwartet uns kraftvoller und energiegeladener Rock! Geradlinig und auf dem Punkt! Aber auch ruhige Klänge kommen auf diesem vielversprechendem Werk nicht zu kurz. „Gemini“ ist frisch, bunt, weiterentwickelt und schaut sowohl textlich, als auch musikalisch mal über den Tellerrand, mal mitten hinein, aber bleibt dennoch immer artefucktisch!
Thematisch ist „Gemini“ so vielfältig wie keines der Alben zuvor. 

Vorzubestellen ab dem 26.06.2020 kommt „Gemini“ als Digipak, limited Boxset und erstmals auch als limitierte Vinyl Schallplatte auf den Markt.
„Gemini“ knüpft da an wo „Stigma“ aufhört, reiht sich nahtlos ein und ist weitaus mehr als ein würdiger Nachfolger. 

Seid gespannt und freut euch auf dieses Werk!

Tracklisting:

1. Artefuckt
2. Adrenalin
3. Diese Tage
4. Volle Kraft voraus
5. Weiß & Schwarz
6. Schachmatt
7. Ein Tag
8. Schwerelos
9. Seid ihr dabei?
10. Ein Mann, Ein Wort!
11. Gute Reise
12. Alles auf Sieg
13. Du bist das Licht

KARYN CRISIS' GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES - unveil new video for "The Ascent"

Prepare to take a journey into the ancient rites of incarnation with the new music video for "The Ascent" from KARYN CRISIS' GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES.
 
Watch "The Ascent" now at: https://youtu.be/IMZsN1Fwqi8
 
This track is taken from the latest album, “Salem's Wounds”, which features occult metal soundscapes that seamlessly soar from evil heaviness to ambient romanticism through soul provoking passages of light and darkness. The release is described as "...one of the more unique albums that will come across your stereo for quite some time," by Metal Insider.net.
 
On the nature of "The Ascent" specifically and the release of the new video, Karyn Crisis comments: "The Ascent is about the transformative ancient rite of Death and Resurrection. It also alludes to the wisdom attained through attuning to the nature of energies which often appear to us as illusions of opposites. To be incarnated again we must first go through the death transition; we must enter the darkness to find the light; to hear the voice of the Universe we must go within, turning attention away from the physical world. Opposites are merely halves of a whole: masculine and feminine energies, the macrocosm and the microcosm, life and death.
In pen and ink I drew a storyboard of the video that I sent to Bob Vigna, who filmed and edited the entire video. I explained to him I wanted to depict this rite of dying unto oneself, represented by the Hanged Man Tarot card. For our story, I felt it was important to have the male Druids taking action in the first part of the story which is about a seeker in the physical world, and for the female Priestesses to complete the creative inward rebirthing process.
I was inspired by a story authored by Carlo Napolitano where a character seeking answers to the Great Mysteries was hung upside down on a tree, with a mask tied to his face, gaining a previously unknown view of the world around him as pagan rituals took place around him. Bob elevated these ideas and turned them into a cohesive storyline that's both tangible and earthly, dreamy and spiritual."

MUSIC, BLOOD AND SPIRIT – The Life and Work of Erik Danielsson - documentary to be premiered in Fall 2015

In 2013 Claudio Marino from the Stockholm based film production company Artax Film started the "Blood and Spirit" trilogy that seeks to capture the souls of artists and those who tread their own path to personal enlightenment and creative wealth. The first part, “Ink, Blood and Spirit” was a biographical portrait of the self-taught tattooer and artist ”Little Swastika”, whose work is well known worldwide. He has made a name for himself with his unique, bold and controversial style, while he also wants to show that the swastika has a totally different meaning than the last 70 years would have us believe. The second part, “Fight, Blood and Spirit”, portraits the Swedish prizefighter Magnus ”Jycken” Cedenblad who fights for the number one mixed martial arts organisation - The Ultimate Fighting Championship. Coming this Fall 2015, “Music, Blood and Spirit”, deals with the life and work of Erik Danielsson. Although mainstream now, the black metal music scene was a small but violent underground movement in the mid 90’s. With the inception of Venom and Bathory, the second wave of black metal hailed from Norway and was the result of a lot controversy. Erik "E" Danielsson is the creative mind behind Watain, a Swedish black metal band reaping success not only among fans but also in the public eye.

Erik Danielsson comments: "While Music, Blood & Spirit is in no way a Watain project, but rather someone else's portrait of me as a person, Claudio's stern and solemn approach to his work reminded me much of how we do things with Watain. I can recommend the movie to everyone who wants a different angle on my person than what they might be used to, since the focus here lies on what motivates and drives me personally, rather than Watain itself."
You can watch a video trailer here: https://vimeo.com/138624283

The first announced screening is happening at the LEAFMEAL FESTIVAL November 27th, 2015 at the FZW in Dortmund, Germany (along live acts Crippled Black Phoenix, Long Distance Calling, Sulphur Aeon, Chapel Of Disease, Disillusion, Hexvessel, Dead Lord, Bombus and more). Tickets available at: http://www.metaltix.com/leafmeal-festival-tickets-30931.html

More screenings will be announced soon. Check www.artaxfilm.com for updates and more info on the "Blood and Spirit" trilogy.

BUTCHER BABIES – release “Igniter” music video!

The BUTCHER BABIES are back with their new, full-length offering, Take It Like a Man (Century Media Records). The official, video for the new track, “Igniter,” perfectly captures the frenetic, high-energy of their amazing live show. Check it out now at the link below. 
“Igniter” Official Music Video: https://youtu.be/qSvwQzNQdVc

Heidi Shepherd (vocals) states: "We've all been in that different state of consciousness where rage over takes over your body and mind. ‘Igniter' is about these emotions and about that last straw that breaks you. We were so lucky as to film this video during our live performance at The Download Festival, Metal Hammer Boat and The Metal Hammer Golden God Awards. As it shows our intense live energy on the stage, it also shows our goofy off stage personalities.”

Carla Harvey further adds: “'Igniter' is a song about the anger and frustration that we can let consume and even destroy us at times. When we first started Butcher Babies, I was in a much darker place and often let that rage overtake me, but after 6 years of having a healthy outlet for those feelings through our music, I'm a completely different person. I love that the video for Igniter, shot while we toured the UK this summer, shows a juxtaposition of on stage rage and our off stage fun personalities. It speaks volumes to the release that music provides not only for the listener, but the creators."

BUTCHER BABIES are:
Heidi Shepherd- vocals
Carla Harvey- vocals
Henry Flury- guitar
Jason Klein- bass
Chrissy Warner- drums

Rock Legends YES begin preparations for their 2016 UK-European Tour

Grammy Award winning pioneers of progressive rock, YES have achieved worldwide success with a history spanning 47 years and 21 studio albums. The band is known for its expansive songs, mystical lyrics, elaborate album art and live stage sets.

Earlier this year YES tragically lost founding member, bassist Chris Squire. Chris had a career spanning over four decades and has influenced as well as played with some of the most notable musicians in rock and pop history. “It’s hard to imagine the future without Chris! He will always be in our thoughts and mind. Chris was a one-off, larger than life human being, who brought a serious amount to everything he was part of,” said YES guitarist, Steve Howe

“It’s been harder than I can say to put thoughts to words—to express the sense of loss I feel upon the passing of my cherished friend and band mate, Chris Squire. I am without one of the most important, most loved people in my life. Chris was always a gentle but strong leader; a steadfast rock of my existence,” added YES drummer, Alan White.

YES MOVING FORWARD & STRONGER THAN EVER

There is no better way to honor the memory of Chris than moving forward and continuing the legacy of the band he co-founded back in 1968.

YES have just finished a successful tour in North America with rock legends TOTO, and Billy Sherwood doing an amazing job taking over for Chris. YES are now planning a massive 25 date tour across the UK and Europe. YES, for the first time in their history, will perform 1971’s ‘Fragile’ and 1980’s ‘Drama’.

“This is the first time we’ll be performing ‘Drama’ in its entirety. And most of the songs haven’t been performed in some 30 years,” stated Steve Howe.

YES are among of the longest lasting and the most successful of the ’70s progressive rock groups, proving to be one of the lasting success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock band. YES retained the same sound, and performed much of the same repertoire they were doing in 1971, and for their trouble, found themselves being taken seriously a quarter of a century later. Their audience remained huge because they had always attracted younger listeners drawn to their mix of daunting virtuosity, cosmic (often mystical) lyrics, complex musical textures, and powerful yet delicate lead vocals.

Frostfeuernächte 2016

Vom 12.02 zum 13.02. 2016 finden die Frostfeuernächte nun zum zweiten Mal statt. Das sehr junge Metal Festival hat seine Heimat südlich von Berlin und ist idyllisch gelegen am Hölzernen See.
Die ersten Frostfeuernächte fanden im Zeitraum vom 20.02 bis 21.02. im Jahr 2015 statt. Im Vorjahr spielten an beiden Festivaltagen insgesamt 21 Bands aus den unterschiedlichsten Metalgenres. Nicht nur bekannte Bands teilten sich bei den Frostfeuernächten die Bühne: regionale und eher „kleine“ Bands bekamen ebenfalls die Möglichkeit ihr Können und ihre Musik einer großen Zuhörerschaft vorzustellen.
2016 findet das Festival wieder auf dem Boden des 'KiEZ Hölzerner See' statt. Zu diesem Anlass finden sich erneut 21 Bands ein, um ein gelungenes „Metal-Wochenende“ mitzugestalten. Bei der Zusammenstellung der Bands ist sich der Veranstalter treu geblieben und bietet den Festivalbesuchern ein breites Genre-Spektrum an.
 
Am Freitag dem 12.02.2016 wird der „Unholy Thrash Day“ vollzogen werden. Unter anderem werden sich die Black-Thrasher 'Witching Hour' sowie 'Nocturnal Witch' die Bühne teilen und die Halle mit ihrem rohen Sound erzittern lassen. Aber auch Bands wie 'The Gash', 'DRENCHED IN BLOOD', 'First Aid', und 'Rimruna' werden aufspielen.

Am Samstag spielen insgesamt 14 Bands. Dazu werden u.a. die Death-Metaller 'Xicution' aus Eberswalde ihre neue Scheibe „Infected“ den Besuchern der Frostfeuernächte vorstellen und eine feuchtfröhliche Record Release Party steigen lassen.
Ein sicherlich ungewöhnlicher Headliner ist das 'Dark Kasperle Theater'. Das 'Dark Kasperle Theater' verbindet Handpuppentheater und eine skurrile Geschichte mit harten Riffs und elektronischen Einlagen. Hinzu kommen noch eine Materialschlacht aus Gemüse, Obst etc. und witzige Charaktere die kein Auge trocken lassen werden.

Auch für die Freunde des Pagan und Folk Metals wird einiges geboten. So werden Adorned Brood, Finsterforst und Firtan der Menge einheizen.
Wichtig zu erwähnen ist, dass an beiden Tagen ein Bandcontest stattfinden wird. Vier Slots werden dazu bereitgestellt werden für die man sich jetzt schon bewerben kann. Weitere Informationen sind auf der Homepage (http://www.frostfeuernächte.de/?page_id=225) oder auf der Facebook-Präsenz zu finden.

Da der Februar zu den eher kalten Jahreszeiten gehört sind die Frostfeuernächte ein reines Indoor-Festival. Für Besucher die gern in der Nähe des Festivalgeländes nächtigen möchten, gibt es die Möglichkeit eine Schlafgelegenheit zu buchen. Die Übernachtungen werden in zwei Kategorien angeboten und müssen im Vorfeld online bestellt werden (http://www.frostfeuernächte.de/?page_id=279).

Ebenso ist für Verpflegung gesorgt. Es wird zu den gängigen Mahlzeiten (Frühstück, Mittag, Abendbrot) ausgewählte warme und kalte Speisen geben. Zusätzlich besteht die Möglichkeit über den Tag kleine Snacks zu erwerben.
Wochenend-Tickets für die Frostfeuernächte 2016 können über die Homepage bestellt werden und liegen preislich bei 25€ (http://www.frostfeuernächte.de/?page_id=279). An der Abendkasse können sowohl Wochenend-Tickets für 30€ oder Tages-Tickets für 17€ erstanden werden.
Aktuelle Informationen gibt es auf der Homepage und auf Facebook. Das Event kann gern durch ein „Like“ unterstützt werden. 

So bleibt ihr auch immer auf dem laufendem wenn sich 
etwas um die Frostfeuernächte dreht.

DARK MILLENNIUM – pre-sale for re-release of “Diana Read Peace” has started

Rise of the Dark Millennium …
 
The circle is complete. As of today you can pre-order the last of three releases by DARK MILLENNIUM: The avant-garde death metal milestone “Diana Read Peace” (originally released in 1993) – a flawless example of highly progressive and innovative extreme metal art. Imagine an adventurous mix of Atheist’s “Piece Of Time” and Cynic’s “Focus”, spiced up with some Pink Floyd-like harmonies and the gloom of early Fields Of The Nephilim and you might get an idea of what to expect from this album.
 
The entire material has been carefully re-mastered from its original source by DARK MILLENNIUM’s main song writer Hilton Theissen. The twisted artwork – scanned from the original painting to guarantee best quality – as well as liner notes by the bands, loads of old photos, all lyrics and – most importantly – two previously unreleased bonus tracks make this re-issue an essential release for the collection of every open minded death metal fan.
 
“Diana Read Peace” will be released on Digipak CD, 2LP (with 4-page inlay and 180 g vinyl) as well as Digital Download/Stream.

DEVIL CITY ANGELS – new album out now!

Today, heavy rock super group DEVIL CITY ANGELS released their high-energy debut self-titled album which is available as Jewel Case CD Edition and Gatefold LP incl. poster. Get your copy at CM Distro or JPC
 
Or download the digital album at one of the following outlets:
iTunes 
Amazon 
 
If you haven’t heard the previously released tracks yet, check out the links below.

“All I Need” Static Video: www.smarturl.it/DCAallineed 
“All My People” Static Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1xexg3gOQA 
  
DEVIL CITY ANGELS has no shortage of professionals in its ranks - namely Tracii Guns of L.A. GUNS on guitar, drummer, Rikki Rocket of POISON, Rudy Sarzo of QUIET RIOT and OZZY OSBOURNE on bass, and singer Brandon Gibbs of THE GIBBS BROTHERS and CHEAP THRILL. With upwards of 100 million units sold and countless packed arena and stadium gigs worldwide between them, the members of DEVIL CITY ANGELS have banded together to do what they love – simply rock out and have a great time while providing music lovers with a fun and engaging sound that everyone can enjoy. 
 
 
In 2014, longtime buddies Tracii and Rikki jammed at a Keith Moon and Jon Entwistle tribute show together with DEVIL CITY ANGELS’ first bassist Eric Brittingham of CINDERELLA. Rocking on stage felt so good that they collectively agreed, “Let’s start a band.” So, Rikki rang Brandon with whom he’d built a relationship after producing music for him ten years prior. 
 
The four musicians holed up in Southern California’s Patagonia Studios within a month of that impromptu first gig. The five-acre ranch allowed for a level of comfortable isolation, encouraging complete focus. As a result, they quickly conjured up a sound of their own. The first track, “All My People”, speaks to that approach with a rollicking and raucous bluesy riff, boisterous drumming, and powerhouse vocals. The first single, “Boneyard”, merges a smooth and swaggering riff with soulful vocals. Meanwhile, “No Angels” begins with a lumbering groove that drips into a heavenly and hypnotic hook. 
 
After recording the album with Brittingham, the bassist amicably split with the guys. Rudy Sarzo stepped into the fold in the spring of 2015 and the band couldn’t be stronger.

EINHEIT PROD. News:

SAXORIOR (D) - AETHERNAEUM (D) – SURTURS LOHE (D) – UTMARKEN (S) 

Am 18. September 2015 erscheint das mittlerweile 6. Album der gestandenen deutschen Epic Pagan Metal Band SAXORIOR „Saksen“ und erzählt von der Völkerwanderung der heidnischen Altsachsen von Anbeginn ihrer ersten Nennung bis zur Christianisierung. Es wird Ruhm und Leid besungen, von Hengist und Horsa, dem Blutbad von Verden bis hin zum letzten großen Aufstand gegen das christliche Joch. Die alte Schreibweise, epische Lieder und die Verarbeitung geschichtlicher Themen dieser Zeit lassen das neue Meisterwerk sehr authentisch wirken.

www.saxorior.de

Die Berliner Band AETHERNAEUM veröffentlicht am 2. Oktober 2015 ihren neuen Longplayer „Naturmystik“ über EINHEIT PRODUKTIONEN. Zu hören gibt es Black Metal, der nicht zuletzt durch den Einsatz von Cello, unzähligen Keyboards, Percussion, Piano und Chören einen sehr epischen, atmosphärischen und melodischen Charakter hat. Doch wenngleich die Wurzeln der Band im Black Metal liegen, lassen sie sich nicht darauf reduzieren. Die anspruchsvollen, oft mehr als 10 Minuten langen Kompositionen verarbeiten auch Einflüsse aus Genres wie Folklore, Progressive Rock, Post-Rock oder traditionellem Heavy Metal. Durch die Vielzahl der Elemente ist auch die Produktion, die von Alexander Paul Blake wieder im eigenen Winter-Solitude-Studio in Berlin gefahren wurde, noch aufwendiger geworden. Nicht selten kamen pro Song um die 100 Einzelspuren zusammen. Erscheinen wird „Naturmystik“ als CD und Artbook und im März 2016 geht die Band dann auf Tour mit Dornenreich!

www.aethernaeum.de

Es gibt Zuwachs im Hause EINHEIT PRODUKTIONEN mit SURTURS LOHE, naturverbundener Pagan Metal aus Thüringen. Anlässlich des 20 jährigen Bestehens der Band erscheint das 4. Album „Seelenheim“ im Frühling 2016 als Digi-CD & limitierte Box inkl. Patch & Poster. SURTURS LOHE verkünden dazu: „Wir freuen uns sehr und sind stolz euch mitteilen zu können, dass SURTURS LOHE endlich wieder "unter Dach und Fach" sind - das Label, unter dem wir fortan stehen, ist kein Geringeres als EINHEIT PRODUKTIONEN. Unter diesem werden wir auch unser kommendes Album veröffentlichen.“

UTMARKEN unterschreiben bei EINHEIT / Debut der Schweden erscheint anno 2016.

Utmarken]Die aufstrebende schwedische Folk Metal Band UTMARKEN visiert die Veröffentlichung ihres Debut Albums für das Frühjahr 2016 via EINHEIT PRODUKTIONEN an. Mitreißender Metal und Einflüsse aus skandinavischer Folk Musik werden von der Band aus der nordschwedischen Provinz Västerbotten so lebendig wie ungezwungen miteinander verwoben. Bandgründer und Sänger Mathias Gyllengahm verwirklicht seine eigenwilligen Ideen u.a. auf der Nyckelharpa (Drehleier) und vertont in der Musik die Wahrnehmung seiner Heimat: “Das Wort 'utmarken' bezeichnet die Außenbezirke, die Peripherie, also jene Landstriche außerhalb der Städte, die nur von wenigen Menschen aufgesucht werden. Dort verbringe ich mein Leben und die Natur, die Einwohner und die Geschichte dieses Landstrichs inspirieren mich. Paradoxerweise handelt es sich bei UTMARKEN dennoch um recht eingängige Musik, nämlich um melodischen Metal mit Elementen skandinavischer Folk Musik. Das heißt erhebende Melodien treffen auf kraftvolle Refrains, umgarnt von ein wenig Melancholie.”

Im Hinblick auf die soeben besiegelte Zusammenarbeit mit EINHEIT PRODUKTIONEN fügt Mathias hinzu: “Ich schätze, dass wir den EINHEIT Katalog um ein paar frische Facetten ergänzen. Die Mannschaft von EINHEIT PRODUKTIONEN hat bereits im Vorfeld ihre Hingabe und Flexibilität unter Beweis gestellt und verstanden, worauf es uns bei UTMARKEN ankommt. Daher bin ich gespannt, was die Zusammenarbeit beiden Seiten bringen wird!”

VAMPIRE – announce release of “Cimmerian Shade” mini-LP

The Vampire strikes back!
 
After a couple of months of silence, Swedish death metal tyrants VAMPIRE return with a new sign of life. On September 25th the band will release the 4-track MLP “Cimmerian Shade”. This MLP will be released on 10” vinyl as well as digital download/stream. With “Cimmerian Shade” VAMPIRE continue walking the path they have chosen with their self-titled demo (2012) and last year’s debut album, offering ghoulish, horror-ridden Nordic death metal spiced up with some sinister South American thrash metal parts and an omnipresent eldritch atmosphere. But “Cimmerian Shade” also shows a departure to unconquered shores by adding an epic touch to the music, which so far hasn’t been an essential part of VAMPIRE’s sound. Here is the track list of “Cimmerian Shade”: 
 
Side A
1.     Pyre Of The Harvest Queen *
2.     Sleeper In The Deep (instrumental)
 
Side B
1.     Night Hunter
2.     Hexahedron
 
* known from the “Whispers Through The Black Veil” LP-only compilation (Wyrd War, 2014)
 
The beautiful, detailed cover artwork was done by the very talented Dilek Baykara. Check out her art at www.dilekbaykara.us/. 
 
One track of the MLP will be launched on August 28th.  And the pre-order for “Cimmerian Shade” starts on that day, too.
 
Watch out for golden and silver vinyl versions! Both are limited to 100 copies only and available at CM Distro Europe (golden vinyl) and CM Distro US (silver vinyl) exclusively!
 
In case you have missed it: Check out VAMPIRE’s excellent video of the song “The Fen” (taken from the self-titled debut album):

BLACK TEMPLE – release debut album “It All Ends” on Century Media Records

Century Media Records recently started a collaboration with Anders Fridén (IN FLAMES) and his label Razzia Notes Records. BLACK TEMPLE from Helsingborg, Sweden, will be the first release Razzia Notes licensed to Century Media for all territories outside of Scandinavia and North America.
 
BLACK TEMPLE’s album debut, “It All Ends”, is an intense story with impressive dynamics. With Magnus Lindberg (CULT OF LUNA) in the producer's seat the band, that has been called the country's most violent live act, explores new territory in their musical landscapes: A primitive primordial drive fights it out with immediate melodies, performed with an ever present sense that each note can be the last. The end may be near, but "It All Ends" is just the beginning.
 
Anders Fridén comments: ”First time I heard Black Temple I freaked and I said to myself, I gotta work with these guys somehow. The whole expression of their music is a perfect introduction to Razzia notes and our new collaboration with Century media. Do yourself a favor and get a copy of ”It All Ends”, it’s a monster of an album.”
 
Jonas, singer and bass player comments: "To become label mates with three of my favourite bands at the same time is a bit like a wet dream... I mean, c'mon - Dark Funeral, Marduk and Watain... And this is just the top layer, in my opinion, of what this behemoth of a label has released thru the years. Simply - such a great honour!"
 
More details about “It All Ends” will be released soon!
 
BLACK TEMPLE will also be supporting IN FLAMES on their European tour this fall and will soon kick off their Scandinavian tour with THE SWORD. See below for the exact dates.

LEAFMEAL – A Feast Of Friends

Autumn will be heavy, with an excellent selection from the voltage field of Post-Punk, Doom, Heavy Rock, Stoner and Death Metal blasting the last remaining leaves off the trees in Dortmund’s FZW. 

The festival was brought into being by Mike Heinemann of Dortmund-based agency Continental Concerts, whose annual Rock Hard Festival in the amphitheatre of Gelsenkirchen has been successful since 2003; Bastian Brühl of Red Shift Music, who has worked with several bands in this scene for Siegen’s Vortex Club and Freak Valley Festival; and Jens Prüter, Chief A&R at Century Media Records. 
 
The first edition of LEAFMEAL will be carried out on 27 November 2015 and will continue annually in autumn. 
 
Both FZW’s big and small stage offer a perfect sound which is unbeatable within a broad periphery. Located at the Western side of Dortmund city centre, FZW is in walking distance of the main station; it provides sufficient parking, and a vibrant scene of record stores (Idiots Records, Black Plastic and Amsterdam Records), bars (BlackEnd, Kraftstoff, et al.), galleries and accommodation. 
 
The first 6 out of 12 bands can be announced already. Swedish whiz kids DEAD LORD, the “rock band currently most talked about” (MetalHammer) will be there. Their debut album ‘Goodbye Repentance’ made it to WDR Rockpalast in no time. Back then, Götz Kühnemund wrote in Rock Hard Magazine: “For me, DEAD LORD are the best hard rock newcomer of the past year (which means a lot considering the current glut of fresh talent) and may well ignore the accusation of plagiarism. Phil Lynot is dead; there won’t be another Thin Lizzy album to reach the level of ‘Goodbye Repentance’”. Their new album ‘Heads Held High’ will be published on 21 August, and it will increase the already high standard even more. 
 
GORILLA MONSOON from Dresden approach Black Sabbath’s heritage a bit rougher when it comes to their Fuzz Riffs. They proved to be a good live band already doing various shows with established bands like Trouble or Crowbar. CHAPEL OF DISEASE from Cologne, on the other hand, dig deep in the bowels of Death Metal; and their extreme individual doomy sound made it to one of the best bands of the new German scene in no time, in line with SULPHUR AEON. SULPHUR AEON’s second album has therefore been honoured as album of the month May 2015 in Rock Hard Magazine and resurrects the Cthulhu during one of their rare gigs. 
 
In Münster, however, earthy Heavy Blues is still being valued. ZODIAC have managed to blow the dust off their heroes ZZ Top, Free and Thin Lizzy on their so far three albums – and they still keep it dirty. KAMCHATKA, who have played a few shows with ZODIACS at the start of the year, take a similar direction. The Swedes around Per Wiberg (ex Opeth, Spiritual Beggars) have just launched their new album ‘Long Road Made Of Gold’ and got euphoric press reactions everywhere. Metal Hammer gave 6 out of 7 points: “Timeless Rock that does not meet any expiry date with this quality”. 
 
Friends of classic Doom Metal will be served by Swedish legends SORCERER, who thrilled the scene with an iconic demo in 1989. 26 years later, they launched an acclaimed debut album, which became 'Album Of The Month April 2015' in the Rock Hard Magazine ​with justice. More doom!
 
From Barcelona, Spain, we will welcome hard rockers '77. They will present their new album which is due to be launched in October and has been produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Paradise Lost, Cathedral).
 
And of course, there is also some "home town" on the agenda. Long Distance Calling are from Dortmund, Münster and Freiburg. As one of the headliners they will bring us the finest Post and Prog Rock!

KRISIUN launch first new track “Scars Of The Hatred”via Metal Hammer

As recently reported, KRISIUN are dead set to release their new album, Forged In Fury, worldwide via Century Media Records on August 7th, 2015. The album will be available as a limited edition digipak incl. two bonus tracks as well as a woven patch, as 180g gatefold 2 LP edition with etching (incl. the album on CD) and as digital download. 
 
The band now launches a first new track off of Forged In Fury, which you can listen to here: http://www.metal-hammer.de/krisiun-song-premiere-vom-kommenden-album-forged-in-fury-487537/
 
Forged In Fury was produced by Erik Rutan, the brain and heart of death metal masters HATE ETERNAL and former guitarist of MORBID ANGEL. Rutan has worked as a producer for his own band as well as for CANNIBAL CORPSE, SIX FEET UNDER, MALEVOLENT CREATION, MADBALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT, to name just a few-- additionally, he also co-produced KRISIUN's Conquerors of Armageddon album back in 1999!
 
The stunning cover artwork was created by renowned artist Joe Petagno (MOTORHEAD, MARDUK, VADER, etc.). 
 
KRISIUN is extremely proud of their new opus and had this to say about the album and their work with producer Erik Rutan: 
 
“Forged in Fury” marks our return to the studio after 3 years of constantly touring all over the globe. Things were working well as we were always satisfied with the results of the previous records, but we thought that it was time for a change. Erik Rutan was the chosen one to be the producer, at Mana Recording Studios in Florida. 
 
This album could be described as a "more natural" sounding album; the songs came out with more ambience and more low-end, making it sound even more brutal and straight-forward. It took us a lot of hard work and dedication, no fashions or tendencies were followed, this is a true relentless metal album to the bone, with a huge, natural sound. The song writing captures all the experience and feelings we gathered thru all the years of touring and recording, it has more variation and dynamics, but is still 100% Krisiun. Erik has a huge participation within the whole process, especially with regards to the band's performance. He was able to get the best out of each one of us, as we have been friends for a long time, so it was a pleasure working with him. This album was made with a lot of heart and passion for metal music.
Hopefully you metal maniacs enjoy it as much as we did working it out.
 
See you on the road.
Alex and Krisiun.
 
 Forged In Fury right away made it to #1 in the Sound Check section of German LEGACY Magazine!

Kaotoxin Records sets August 14 release for ANTROPOFAGO's Æra Dementiæ

From phobia to dementia, French death metal outfit Antropofago have progressed beyond all expectations and are set to return with a merciless, technical, catchy and brutal second album.
 
Four years after their debut full-length, Beyond Phobia, Antropofago further explore the depths of human psychosis with Æra Dementiæ, a dementia-based concept album that continues the chilling look into phobia that was its predecessor. The album sees Antropofago reach new levels of technical prowess, production and artistic maturity.
 
Still as diverse in its approach of technical Death Metal, the new material is marked with well-placed doses of brutality and addictive choruses to make Æra Dementiæ the breakthrough album for Antropofago! Featuring a special guest solo by Nicolas Alberny (Gorod) and guest vocals by label-mates Laurent Chambe (Nephren-Ka), Aara (ex-Savage Annihilation), Benoit Jean (ex-Insain) and other surprise contributors, the album is full of hidden little gems and the over-the-top musicianship. 
 
Antropofago has teamed with No Clean Singing [North America] and VS-Webzine [France] for the premiere of album track "Helter Skelter." The song is streaming at the following links:

English - NoCleanSinging.com 
French - VS-Webzine.com

With the first pressing limited to 500 copies, Kaotoxin Records will release the album on August 14 as a deluxe DigiSleeve double CD featuring an expanded version of the band's 2012 Between Fear and Madness EP. Further physical and digital editions will be released on the same day as two separate releases, with Æra Dementiæ and Between Fear and Madness [Redux] sold individually. 

Tracklist:
- Intro
- Encounter with the Doppelgänger
- Body Cell
- Helter Skelter
- Æra Dementiæ
- Paranoid Visions (pt.2)
- The Other Me
- God ov Fire
- Voices

DARK MILLENNIUM – full discography to be released in autumn 2015

Century Media Records are very proud to announce the cooperation with DARK MILLENNIUM for the release of the band’s entire discography.

Germany’s DARK MILLENNIUM were formed in 1989. With the release of their demo tapes “The Apocryphal Wisdom” (1991) and “Of Sceptre Their Ashes May Be” (1992) the band heavily stirred up the German death metal underground as one of the most promising – and surely one of the most unique – death metal bands of that time. While other followed the paths paved by international acts as Death, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Obituary or Morgoth, DARK MILLENNIUM’s vision always was to create something special and new, something not instantly comparable to the big names of the scene. To this very day DARK MILLENNIUM’s debut album “Ashore The Celestial Burden” remains one prime example of dark, varied and very atmospheric death metal packed with twisted riffs, haunting melodies and an uncanny instinct for intricate song structures, entwining the gloom of early UK death metal with the technical finesse of albums like “Piece Of Time” or “Blessed Are The Sick”. The follow-up album “Diana Read Peace” led DARK MILLENNIUM further away from the sound of the early days towards the realms of progressive metal that only few bands like Atheist or Cynic dared to tread at that time. May it be the musical differences or internal quarrel that caused DARK MILLENNIUM’s untimely demise, sure is they were far ahead of their time and therefore never had the chance to reap what they have sown … until now. The release of their complete work is a tribute to one of the best death metal bands to ever emerge from the German soil. 

DARK MILLENNIUM’s guitarist and musical mastermind Hilton Theissen has carefully remastered both albums from the original sound sources, while Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony (Asphyx, Morgoth, Grave, Dissection) has restored the two demos. The sound of the entire material is absolutely mindblowing. DARK MILLENNIUM’s discography will be released as a fairly-price limited 4CD version and on vinyl as three separate limited LPs. Detailed info on the different formats as well as exact release dates will be revealed in the coming weeks. 

Keep your eyes open and witness the resurrection of unearthly death metal darkness of ancient times.

DARK MILLENNIUM Line-Up:
Christoph Hesse – drums
Klaus Pachura – bass
Christian Mertens – vocals
Michael Burmann – guitars
Hilton Theissen – guitars

NAPALM DEATH’s Shane Embury comments as follows:

“It goes without saying that we are really looking forward to the upcoming "Deathcrusher Tour”. The Musical history and relevance between all 4 of the bands truly speaks for itself I think - It's heartwarming to be a part of it.

All of the bands involved in this tour have been great friends for what I guess is a lifetime now - we have played together on many separate occasions before BUT this tour! This tour is something very special, I mean come on…VOIVOD, NAPALM DEATH, OBITUARY & CARCASS are you kidding? All on the same bill night after night?? This is the A to Z of heavy, grinding, progressive, crushing riffs in one insane package!

I expect to see nothing less than savage mosh pit mayhem every evening….this is one tour nobody should miss…”

On other news, NAPALM DEATH have just made an unreleased track from the sessions of their latest album “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” available as charity download for Nepal. Look for the track “Earthwire” and further information here: http://napalmdeath.org/scum/store-download-page/
Here are some words by NAPALM DEATH about this project:
“Having been fortunate to be invited to Kathmandu just over three years ago to play a gig, I remember fondly the unique, enriching experience that it gave us as a band. When you're bouncing from continent to continent in short spaces of time, it might be very easy to become complacent to where you process all those continents through the same perceptive filter. I think you owe it those who receive you - and to yourself - to have a deeper sense of understanding.

Nepal, therefore, seemed not only a place of striking beauty, but also a tougher place for things that you would normally take for granted e.g. a stage to play on and a place for a concert festival. A wider viewing revealed such grim inequalities - in comparison to the wider world - as people living in holes at the side of the road, which then actually became one of the reference points for our current album, 'Apex Predator - Easy Meat'.

When the earthquake struck on the 25th April 2015, I recalled the general frailty of the buildings in Kathmandu (something which you see on several continents where deprivation makes everyday habitation a very hazardous experience) and could already imagine the consequences - I didn't necessarily need to view the inevitable volume of TV / internet footage.

Shane, our bass player, was already thinking of what Napalm Death could do to alleviate things in our own small way and knowing that Bill Gould from Faith No More had been involved in the region, Shane was kindly directed by him to the DZI. We like the fact that the community has an overriding hand in deciding how to best use resources, and the spirit of independence that the DZI encourages is something that runs in parallel with the ethos of Napalm Death.

We therefore present an exclusive track from the aforementioned album session written by our guitarist, Mitch Harris - to raise funds for the work and resources required through the DZI. The lyrics can be interpreted in several different ways, but to me they signify acknowledging and embracing humanity beyond the relentless march of technology. Perhaps somewhat apt here.

Please give what you can to aid the rebuilding of people's lives - and bathe in the sonic extremity.”

With thanks and in solidarity, Mark "Barney" Greenway for and on behalf of Napalm Death

Ist dir das Leben zu hart, bist du zu weich für Megaherz!“

MEGAHERZ AUF TOUR MIT UNHEILIG - PRESSE FÜRCHTET UM DAS WOHL DER KONZERT-BESUCHER!

Seit Freitag, den 26.06.2015 ist es also soweit, UNHEILIG starten ihre Gipfelstürmer- Tour 2015. Im Vorprogramm: Niemand geringeres als die Neue-Deutsche-Härte-Größe MEGAHERZ, welche mit ihrem brand aktuellen Album „Zombieland“ die deutschen Charts stürmten und sich zurück an die Spitze ihres Genres erklommen haben. Doch, sind MEGAHERZ zu hart für das UNHEILIG-Publikum? So jedenfalls findet es das Oberbayerische Volksblatt / Mühldorfer Anzeiger, und schreibt in einem am Samstag den 20.06. veröffentlichten Artikel: „Zum Auftakt bleibt den Mamas und Papas aber wohl nichts anderes übrig, als den kleinen Fans des Grafen die Augen und Ohren zuzuhalten. […] Was diese Härte mit sich bringt, sind vor allem harte Worte: aggressiv, derb, unter der Gürtellinie.“ Und fügt hinzu: „Megaherz passt zum „Familien-Event“ wie ein Horrorfilm ins Nachmittags-Programm.“

Den besagten Artikel in voller Länge gibt es hier zu lesen:
http://www.ovb-online.de/muehldorf/viel-deutsche-haerte-5139381.html

Die „harten“ Fakten beweisen allerdings das Gegenteil: Denn nicht ohne Grund zählen MEGAHERZ bis heute zu den führenden Neue-Deutsche-Härte Bands, ein Genre, aus dem eben auch UNHEILIG entsprungen sind. Immense Chart-Erfolge, ausverkaufte Tourneen, eine stetig wachsende Fan-Gemeinde in ganz Europa, die MEGAHERZ mit ihren Erfols-Alben mitbringen, sprechen Bände. Nun hat die Band bereits 2 Konzerte der Gipfelstürmer-Tour mit UNHEILIG gespielt: Am 26.06. in Schwäbisch Gmünd sowie am 27.06. auf der Loreley/St. Goarshausen, bei welchen MEGAHERZ direkt ihr brandneues Album „Zombieland“ ausverkauften, und seither auch Amazon komplett leergekauft ist. Der Andrang auf die Band einer täglich wachsenden Fangemeinde von jung bis alt ist immens.
Zu hart für das UNHEILIG-Publikum?

Die Band kommentierte nun in einem offenen Statement:
„Zum Einen können wir die ganze Aufregung, die dieser Artikel ausgelöst hat, überhaupt nicht verstehen, zum Anderen bedauern wir es natürlich, dass ein einzelner Journalist überhaupt soviel Verunsicherung auslösen kann. Er zitiert in seinem Artikel den Liedtext eines Songs, der in unseren absoluten Anfangsjahren entstand und das ist gut 20 Jahre her. Es ist ein Zeitzeugnis unserer Bandhistorie. Mehr nicht. Wir thematisieren in unseren Texten das Leben und nehmen dabei manchmal auch kein Blatt vor den Mund, hin und wieder provozieren wir auch, wenn wir meinen, dadurch dem Thema auch gerecht zu werden. Wie immer sollte man dabei auch das berühmte Augenzwinkern nicht vergessen, denn gerade der Humor und der Wortwitz sind unsere Stärken. Wir haben Fans in allen Altersklassen, die gerade das an uns schätzen.

Im Internet kursierte das Gerücht, dass das Unheilig-Management uns irgendetwas verboten oder uns sogar vorgeschrieben hätte, welche Songs wir spielen oder nicht spielen dürfen. Passiert ist das natürlich nicht. Man soll nicht immer glauben was da gedruckt wird.

Die Konzertbesucher der Gipfelstürmer Open Air Tour dürfen sich auf einen großartigen Abend mit coolen Bands freuen, die mit viel Herzblut, Gefühl und Spaß an die Sache rangehen. Wie gut das funktioniert hat man bereits in Schwäbisch Gmünd und auf der Loreley erleben dürfen. Nur lachende Gesichter und feiernde, abrockende Menschen!“

Überzeugt euch selbst und erlebt MEGAHERZ auf Tour mit UNHEILIG auf ihrer 'Gipfelstürmer-Tour 2015':
17.07.15 GER – Mühldorf am Inn
28.08.15 GER – Leipzig
29.08.15 GER – Leipzig
12.09.15 GER - Essen
