KILLING JOKE TO RELEASE SINGLE COLLECTION AND WORLD TOUR ANNOUNCED

news feature

KILLING JOKE will celebrate their 35th anniversary in style next year with the release of The Singles Collection 1979-2012 and a world tour set to commence in Europe this coming March. 2013 will also see the band release a new studio album!

With a fierce intelligence combined with a thirst for esoteric knowledge that matches a sound that is visceral and almost spiritual in its primal spirit, KILLING JOKE are like no other. This is a group spawned from punk rock that set out on one of the most remarkable and idiosyncratic journeys ever. Their influence has been enormous, with an unlikely roll-call of musicians taking their cues from the KJ catalog, from Nirvana to most modern American metal to many DJs and dance music mavericks. Few, however have come close to matching the band’s innate power.

The Singles Collection 1979-2012, set for release via Spinefarm/Universal on April 16, 2013, captures their ever-evolving story with a series of dark, apocalyptic songs that have successfully combined disco, funk and shamanic wisdom with the dark side of the punk fall-out. The Singles Collection 1979-2012 will be released in three formats: as a digital download, a limited edition 3-CD set and a super deluxe edition.

Formats:

3-CD Edition includes:
- 33 career-spanning singles over 2 CDs + a third disc of rarities, including previously unreleased studio tracks. This 3-CD version will be limited in number, reverting to 2 CDs containing the singles tracks. To preorder, go HERE.

Super Deluxe Edition includes:
- Hand-numbered hinged-lid “cigar box” made from 1500mcn black-lined rigid board finished with matt print retrospective artwork.
- 33 career-spanning CD singles plus selected B-Sides in full-color card wallets featuring original artwork.
- Rarities disc, including previously unreleased studio tracks.
- 32-page perfect-bound book including rare photos, archive notes, band commentary.
- Poster designed and personally signed by long-time KILLING JOKE artist/champion, Mike Coles, printed on 250gsm silk art.
- Aluminum screw-top branded cigar tube containing original wrappers of cigars smoked by Jaz Coleman and Paul Raven during the recording of the Hosannas From The Basements Of Hell album. To preorder this version, go HERE.

KILLING JOKE, with their original line-up of Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth and Big Paul continuing to hold firm, have signed a brand new deal with Spinefarm and will soon set about recording a third studio album for the label. The release date of this new studio album is likely to be late 2013

Rammstein Video Collection

‘VIDEOS 1995-2012’: COMPLETE VIDEO COLLECTION, INCLUDING EXTENSIVE BEHIND-THE-SCENES FOOTAGE & TWO BRAND NEW CLIPS, SET FOR UK RELEASE ON DECEMBER 17th 2012...

Rammstein Video Collection

SEX AND CRIME, blood and fire, monsters and mutations...

What sounds like a compendium of midnight movies is really just a collection of music videos. If we call them clips, at least Americans will think of the gun magazines they use to reload their weapons. That suits the explosive content.

With just a small creative core to set the agenda, RAMMSTEIN have consistently created stunning image sequences that are unparalleled internationally. Directors working with the band have demonstrated a clear sense of vision, tremendous courage, plus a unique refusal to compromise – and no box-set to date can attest to this as gloriously as the forthcoming box set, ‘Videos 1995-2012’, released through Spinefarm Records in the UK on December 17th 2012.

Almost a decade after the arrival of their first video retrospective, ‘Lichtspielhaus’ (2003), an up-to-date and more complete picture of the band has finally emerged. While the clips show RAMMSTEIN in their purest form, a few lesser-known facts also come to light, primarily via the behind-the-flames footage from the individual shoots, plus the many interviews with the various people involved and of course the band members themselves.

A high point is the new clip for ‘Mein Herz Brennt’ (‘My Heart Burns’), lead track on the seminal ‘Mutter’ album (2001), and the story behind it. So time-consuming was the promo to get right, that some of the band members started to see it as the ‘eternal video’, one they would be working on until their collective death. It ultimately took several attempts and the work of two directors to get this monumental piece off the ground.

Not only did this result in one of the most unusual videos in the history of a band notorious for their output in this area (‘Du Hast’, ‘Sonne’, ‘Links 2 3 4’, ‘Mein Teil’, ‘Mann Gegen Mann’, ‘Pussy’, etc.); but as a reward for all the hard work, some extra footage was shot featuring front-man Till Lindemann in a solo performance of the ‘piano version’ of ‘Mein Herz Brennt’.

‘Videos 1995 – 2012’, meanwhile, is available as a Digi-pack Box Set with 3 DVDs or two Blu-ray discs; all 25 videos, including the makings-of (24), have been recently updated – a full eight hours of official content complete with a detailed, 56-page booklet plus lenticular cover.

With this box set, RAMMSTEIN presents itself in all its glory: larger than life, larger than Hollywood.

The Crescentin uusi albumi ulkona ensi vuonna

The Crescent "Risti" - albumi ulkona 2013
The Crescentin uusi albumi ulkona ensi vuonna

Spinefarm Records on kiinnittänyt kotimaisen black metal - bändi The Crescentin, joka aiemmin tunnettiin nimellä Enochian Crescent. Yhtye päätyi vaihtamaan nimeä laulajavaihdoksen myötä. Alusta saakka bändissä mukana ollut solisti Wrath siirtyi bändistä syrjään kesällä 2012 ja tilalle kiinnitettiin Hellwind Tuonenjoki, jota ollaan aiemmin kuultu mm. Sacrilegious Impalement- ja Desolate Shrine – yhtyeiden solistina.

Vuonna 1995 perustettu bändi on julkaissut tähän mennessä kolme täyspitkää albumia. The Crescentin uusi albumi ”Risti” julkaistaan alkuvuonna 2013. Musiikillisessa ilmaisussa yhtye on työntänyt äärirajojaan entistä  pidemmälle niin rankempaan kuin herkempäänkin suuntaan.

Uutta materiaalia saadaan kuulla jo joulukuun 21. päivä digitaalisen singlen myötä: kyseessä on kahden biisin single (The Crescent: ”Enochian Crescent”), jossa toisen biisin vetää Enochian Crescent entisen vokalistin kera – toinen puolestaan on The Crescentin uusi biisi. 

The Crescent esiintyy ensimmäistä kertaa uudella nimellään Helsingin Nosturissa 21.12. Maailmanlopun Metalheim Festivalilla yhdessä ruotsalaisten Shiningin ja Ofermodin sekä suomalaisen Kuolemanlaakson kanssa. Ensi keväänä bändi on mahdollista nähdä myös mm. Hyvinkään Steelfestin esiintyjänä.

Hinder release new album Today

US ROCKERS RELEASE FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM 'WELCOME TO THE FREAK SHOW'
Hinder release new album Today

Hinder's fourth studio album is out today featuring the single 'Save Me'. You can watch the lyric video for 'Save Me' below.

'Welcome To The Freakshow’ was co-produced by drummer Cody Hanson and Marshall Dutton (9 Left Dead, Seasons After) in a hometown studio. Instead of simply sticking to a tried-and-true formula, the group decided to smash boundaries, experimenting with rock, pop, and even a little country. Welcome to the Freakshow is Hinder at their most diverse and dynamic.

 "We like to think we can do anything. We don't want to be stuck in a rut with one type of sound or formula. One song might have a country influence, while another might have a pop influence. Then, there are some heavy metal moments. We have every element covered on this record. You've got to do what's best for the song." – Cody Hanson.

Turbogeist Announce New EP

LONDON-BASED rockers, Turbogeist, will release their ‘Ancient Secrets’ EP on January 14th 2012
Turbogeist Announce New EP

Co-produced by the band & Chris Sheldon (who has previously worked with Pixies, Radiohead & Foo Fighters, amongst others), ‘Ancient Secrets’ was recorded at Livingston Studios in North London, and will be available as a digital download plus a numbered, coloured vinyl 10”.

Inspired in part by Apocalyptic times, ‘Ancient Secrets’ includes five ripping tracks, with man’s stuttering evolution at the core of the action; the featured songs include ‘Mermaid’s Revenge’ (about our ill-fated attempts to conquer nature), for which a video has just been filmed, and ‘Zero Friends’ (society's slow death by social networking).

Says guitarist / vocalist, Jimmy…

“Ancient Secrets pertains to our obsession with all things fantastical and cryptic. It's an abstract title, but these are abstract times. We didn't wanna make an oi oi punk angst record, although that’s how we started out. We wanted to make something more tongue-in-cheek, more weird. We were always turned on by a splatter gun of influences. We didn’t want to make a punk or hardcore or glam or thrash record; we didn't wanna make anything that felt sonically linear. If the EP were a drug it would probably be acid, as it could go in a few directions. It could be scary, but it could also make you laugh or cry, or make you realise that nothing is real and we are all just a collection of atoms moving very fast to no discernible end.”

Inspired by ’70’s era punk-rock and ’80s hardcore, and taking cues from The Replacements, The Damned and The Misfits, Turbogeist – Jimmy, Luis, James & Josh – are out to carve their own path, melding their influences (including a deep love of comic books) into an amalgam of twisted sci-fi laden punk rock exploding with raw aggression & attitude.

Guitarist / vocalist Luis adds...

“Being a youth in the 90's with Brit pop, Grunge, Hip hop and great rock bands emerging on the radio and music television we were spoiled for choice. Nowadays everything seems too polished. However if you look beyond the void of Mercury Awards and Coldplay b-sides there are great underground scenes/ bands emerging.”

Turbogeist will be guesting with Cancer Bats on three of their UK dates in December:-
08th – Fibbers, York
13th – Sugarmill, Stoke
18th – O2 Academy, Liverpool

You can buy tickets here

The debut Turbogeist album is already in the can and will follow in Spring 2013.

Bloodred Hourglass - Debut Album Out Now!

news feature

Bloodred Hourglass, formerly known as “BRHG”, is a thrash-metal band from Mikkeli, Finland. Originally formed in 2005, this group of five been reaping some nice and growing success inside metal-circles, mainly by the unforgivingly hard and consistent live performances played so far.

After a few self-released demos, which of “Deviant Grace” mainly claimed the group a lot of attention, in 2011 BRHG compeleted the recordings for the debut album called “Lifebound”, and finally in April 2012 signed a record deal with Spinefarm Records.

Bloodred Hourglass is a mixture of groove, melody, aggression and catchy choruses with basis hanging tight on thrash-metal. Straight-forward hardcore-elements together with influences from even orchestral music add up to our sound making this something completely unique.

HELLOWEEN ANNOUNCE NEW RECORD!!

Out 21st Of January 2013

LEGENDARY GERMAN ROCKERS CONFIRM THE RELEASE OF NEW STUDIO ALBUM, ‘STRAIGHT OUT OF HELL’, FOR JANUARY 21st2013

+ ONE-OFF UK HEADLINE SHOW AT THE LONDON FORUM ON APRIL 16th!

 

HELLOWEEN ANNOUNCE NEW RECORD!!

THE FOLLOW-UP to their 2010 ‘7 Sinners’ release, ‘Straight Out Of Hell’ is the latest studio album to be issued beneath the celebrated Helloween banner – a banner first unfurled back in 1985.

Set for release via Spinefarm Records on January 21st 2013, ‘Straight Out Of Hell’ has been produced by Charlie Bauerfeind, who also worked on ‘7 Sinners’, and sees the five musicians maintaining a rawer edge throughout, working quickly in the studio (MiSueno Studio in Tenerife) and delivering 13 brand new compositions that, in the words of founding member, guitarist Michael Weikath, will “kick even the laziest listener’s ass!”

Bristling with positive energy, songs such as ‘Make Fire Catch The Fly’, ‘Far From The Stars’ and the title track itself, written by bassist Markus Grosskopf, show that when Helloween push their collective foot to the floor they are never too keen to ease off the gas ; and they take chances, ever willing to use their well-documented virtuosity to break out of the mould..

Says singer Andi Deris: “We’ve always followed our own path when it comes to music… and if someone had ever tried to stop us, well, we’d have done what we wanted, anyway! Some of our moves have attracted negative reactions at first, but in time they’ve gone on to reap success and reward, and that’s the kind of freedom you can feel on this new album – we don’t allow ourselves to be put under pressure…”

With Deris, Weikath, Grosskopf (also a founding member) and guitarist Sascha Gerstner all providing material, ‘Straight…’ is a passionate, multi-layered affair, complete with a limited edition premium package featuring a special Hammond organ run-through of Weikath outing, ‘Burning Sun’ – this version conceived as a tribute to Deep Purple’s Jon Lord.

As for first single / video, that’s now confirmed as ‘Nabatea’ – a seven minute-plus composition about the legendary kingdom, located in today’s Middle East, where the first real democracy existed over 3000 years ago. The secret Nabatean city, Petra, only discovered last century, is the backdrop for many myths and legends, and here it provides the ideal subject matter for a set of lyrics far removed from the rock ‘n’ roll norm.

On the live front, meanwhile, Helloween (fresh from appearing at prestigious Japanese Festival, Loud Park) will be returning to the road in March 2013 – the first part of a world tour set to kick off in mainland Europe, with Gamma Ray as special guests. The follow-up to the ‘Hellish Rock Tour’ of 2007 / 2008, this extended outing (‘Hellish Rock Part II’) will bring the band to the UK on April 16th for a one-off date at the London Forum.

Further UK shows will follow…

Shining's new album 'Redefining Darkness' released today!

Shining's 'Redefining Darkness' OUT TODAY!

Produced by King Diamond's Andy LaRocque ‘Redefning Darkness’ was recorded at Sonic Train studios.
According to founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth: "The use of numbers to describe their albums is no longer something that SHINING is interested in doing. The new album is without a doubt the darkest thing I have ever done or heard. People will be upset for sure - and hopefully its divine genius will destroy the lives of thousands"

Kobra And The Lotus Release Video For '50 Shades Of Evil'

Kobra And The Lotus launch a brand new video for ‘50 Shades Of Evil’, the second single from their current self-titled album, released August 2012.

Directed by Lisa Mann, whose previous credits include videos for ApocalypticaThe Used and Cascada, ‘50 Shades Of Evil’ sees front woman Kobra surviving a full tilt attack on the senses, while her band members run through the track like men (literally) possessed!

 When asked what it was like to join forces with Lisa MannKobra said; “It was an honour to work with a director who is as exceptional as Lisa. Not only is she passionate, she is a true visionary. Throughout the whole experience she never ceased to amaze us. Lisa’s creative flow is not only boundless, it is dynamic and organic.  Her consistent level of enthusiasm charged the whole team.”

 Canadian native Lisa Mann was keen to work with her fellow countrymen (based in the Calgary area) after hearing ’50 Shades Of Evil’ and feeling she could channel the primal aggression of the track in ways that side-stepped the more traditional touchstones of the genre...

 “This band is super creative and up for anything. I like that in a group.  I met them before the shoot and briefed them on some of my insane ideas...like suspending Kobra by strapping her to a railing 15 ft in the air, and they were totally trusting. I think one of my favourite parts of the shoot day was when we had Kobra on the bed. We had the bed rocking violently with Kobra on it as we blew her hair wildly. It was a tough scene for any artist to perform in, but Kobra was such a pro she completely went for it and totally nailed it” – Lisa Mann.

50 Shades Of Evil’ will be released as a digital single on the 5th November 2012; the bonus track is an acoustic cover of the Dio classic, ‘Rainbow In The Dark’, performed by KATL during their acoustic session at the Bloodstock Festival back in August this year.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH RELEASE VIDEO FOR "THE PRIDE"

 Watch Five Finger Death Punch's  video for "The Pride" HERE

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH RELEASE VIDEO FOR "THE PRIDE"

The clip is the first wherein the band has presented live footage from the road within the short-form music video medium.  Footage was selected from the band's successful Metal Hammer Presents Trespass America Tour over this past summer, and the band's critically acclaimed set at Rock On The Range. 

 Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody shares, "One of the best parts of being in this band is that we have the chance to design and build bigger and bigger live shows. Our concerts became spectacular gatherings of our extended family and we wanted to share this amazing experience with everyone. So we wrote & designed this video in dedication of our loyal, dedicated, militant fan base known as Knuckleheads who deserve the best experience we can give them.  You've all stood by us & diligently helped us introduce the world to Five Finger Death Punch and this is our way of saying THANK YOU! We couldn't have done any of this without all of you. WELCOME TO THE PRIDE !"

Primal Rock Rebellion Release New Video

Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith and former SikTh frontman Mikee Goodman's PRIMAL ROCK REBELLION release new video for 'Tortured Tone'

Primal Rock Rebellion Release New Video

“It’s never easy choosing singles from an album, especially an album where the songs are both well-crafted and packed with lyrics that instantly throw up all kinds of visual ideas, some more bizarre than others. So, following on from ‘No Place Like Home’ and ‘No Friendly Neighbour’, singles one & two from the debut Primal Rock Rebellion album, ‘Awoken Broken’, it was decided that followers of the project – new to the public, but several years in the making – should be given the chance to register their vote, and the band’s online sites duly glowed red hot with suggestion and counter-suggestion as to just what single three should be…

“An interesting exercise for sure, and by and large, what the Primal Rock People wanted was ‘Tortured Tone’… not one of the album’s more deeply rockin’ moments, but certainly one of its most emotive, with a chorus that takes hold then refuses to budge.

“For singer, lyric & melody writer Mikee Goodman, ‘Tortured Tone’ has always been a pivotal piece, proving he can shine just as brightly on material on the more measured side of that played by his previous outfit, SikTh, and also giving him the chance to take full control of the accompanying visuals. Conceived, cast & directed by Mikee, this lovingly constructed clip provides a clear insight into what was going through his mind when he penned the lyrics, and the final edit – again, overseen by Mikee – is sure to become a talking point amongst fans of the project.

“As with Primal Rock Rebellion in general, there’s no easy option take here, but the end results are all the more satisfying for the time and passion spent…”

'UNSUNG HEROES' BY ENSIFERUM IS OUT TODAY!

news feature

The long-awaited album Unsung Heroes by Finnish heroic metallers ENSIFERUM is being released today!

The band's fifth full-length album, represents both an evolution and a refinement for the band, who have made the biggest-sounding record of their nearly twenty-year career. "Crushing metal combined with majestic and beautiful folk and orchestration parts make this album something really unique in the whole genre," says bassist Sammi Hink.

Unsung Heroes was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Sentenced, Apocalyptica), and features artwork by Kristian Wahlin, as well as a medley of special guests including members of Die Apokalyptischen Reiter plus legendary Finnish singer/actor, Vesa-Matti Loiri.

“…Mount the longboats, light the torches, and prepare for battle,” warns Metal Injection while Stereokiller boasts: “This is nothing short of amazing, beautiful in every way possible. ”Elaborates Blistering in an 8/10 review: “ENSIFERUM weren't necessarily the first band out of the epic/folk gate, but they're probably the best… One jaunt through 2009's thoroughly captivating From Afar supports that notion, as the Finns were able to brandish a mighty sonic sword that kept the speed on 10, the jovial acoustics 'a hustling, and above all else, managed to bring a sort of mild sophistication to a style that is usually anything but. Essentially, ENSIFERUM doesn't play the stupid, folk metal game, and on Unsung Heroes, they manage to stay the course with sterling results.

The Treatment Announce Christmas Date At London's Underworld

LONDON HEADLINE SHOW CONFIRMED FOR DECEMBER 15TH IN THE WAKE OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH KISS / MOTLEY CRUE, PLUS UK DATES WITH THIN LIZZY…

UK ROCKERS The Treatment will play a headline show at The Underworld in London on Saturday, December 15th – a Christmas outing to celebrate what has been an extraordinary year in the lives of the five young musicians…

Following the release of their debut ‘This Might Hurt’ album through Spinefarm Records, The Treatment have shared international stages with the likes of Alice Cooper, Steel Panther & Black Stone Cherry; released 3 singles & videos (with a fourth to follow); recorded a five-track covers EP (‘Then & Again’); appeared at major festivals all over Europe (including Graspop in Belgium & Download in the UK); and been hand-picked to join the Kiss / Motley Crue co-headline tour of North America – 43 arena dates taking in both coasts and key points in-between.

Says Treatment frontman Matt Jones: “I was on our tour bus in Las Vegas the other night, and it suddenly struck me just how amazing it is that we’re out here playing these huge venues with bands we’ve all grown up listening to and admiring, and that we’re going down really well with the US crowds and making lots of new friends. We’re living out our dreams and the great thing is, we’re doing it as a group of friends and we’re doing it through music.

“Oh, and I got to celebrate my 21st birthday on the road here. Not only was I taped to a chair and had champagne poured over me by Tommy Lee, but The Crue camp also arranged for me to be entertained by two strippers in clown make-up – and I’m terrified of clowns! It was quite some experience. What a night!”

THE TREATMENT’s latest single / video, ‘Shake The Mountain’, is now set for release on November 5th via Spinefarm; it comes complete with two bonus acoustic tracks, previously unreleased.Following this, from November 29th – December 11th, the Cambridge-based band will be Special Guesting with Thin Lizzy in the UK, prior to their Underworld appearance on the 15th; the full line-up for this show will be confirmed shortly.

ROB ZOMBIE AND MARILYN MANSON JOIN FORCES FOR “TWINS OF EVIL” U.S. AND EUROPEAN TOUR

KoRn’s Jonathan “J Devil” Davis will Provide Support on Many U.S. Dates
ROB ZOMBIE AND MARILYN MANSON JOIN FORCES FOR “TWINS OF EVIL” U.S. AND EUROPEAN TOUR

It had to happen. Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie are hitting the road together this fall, co-headlining the “Twins of Evil” tour. Debauchery, theatrics, ghoulish imagery, and a full-on assault of all the senses are what’s in store for fans when the tour kicks off, first in the U.S. and then with a 10-country sweep through Europe.

Kicking off September 28 when both Zombie and Manson co-headline the first day of the Desert Uprising Festival in Phoenix, Arizona, expect defiant rock’n'roll showmanship in the form of these unholy rollers with the first U.S. date wrapping in Dallas on Halloween, October 31. For ticket on sale and purchasing info, log onto www.marilynmanson.com.or www.robzombie.com.

“Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It’s happening now,” stated Zombie. “If good taste is the chief enemy of great art, then we should be able to fill the Louvre with this fucking tour. Be prepared for something wicked this way a-coming.”

“I have sympathy for the Whore of Babylon that gave birth to these twins of evil, and this abomination of a tour,” says Marilyn Manson. “There is no babysitter, and there is no repairing her womb. If Rob Zombie doesn’t fuck you up, than I surely will.”
“Hide all drugs and firearms… I’m coming to town,” Manson stated.

J Devil, the DJ alter ego of KoRn’s frontman Jonathan Davis, will support the Manson/Zombie dates with his chaotic electro-metal. “I like to think of JDevil as the ‘anti-christ’ of EDM,” he said. “To play alongside Zombie and Manson is going to be a fucking sinister night all around, and an unbelievable theatrical experience. I can’t wait.”

Marilyn Manson’s eighth full-length album Born Villain debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, also grabbing the #1 spots on both the Heavy Album Chart and the Independent Album Chart. “This is Manson at his best,” says ARTISTdirect. “Elegantly, he slices throats and puts up a middle finger to everyone once more.”

For the “Twins of Evil” tour, Zombie and his band of maniacs – John 5/guitar, Piggy D/bass and drummer Ginger Fish – will bring their elaborate, multi-media production, complete with hair-raising theatrics, animatronic robots, oversized LED screens, a non-stop collage of psychotronic monster film clips, a spectacular light show, a gigantic robot with flames shooting out of its body, pyrotechnics, insane guitar riffs and vicious beats. On August 7, prior to the kick off of the “Twins of Evil” tour, Mondo Sex Head, an album featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today’s top DJs, including KoRn’s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis, Photek, the Bloody Beetroots, †††, Kraddy, Drumcorps, and Ki: Theory will be released (Universal Music Enterprises/UMe). Fans can download one of the new songs, “Thunder Kiss ’65 (J-Devil Number of the Beast Remix),” from iTunes.

ROB ZOMBIE REVEALS 'MONDO SEX HEAD' ARTWORK

news feature

On August 6, 2012, Spinefarm Records will release Rob Zombie’s Mondo Sex Head, featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today’s top DJs, including KoRn’s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis, Photek, the Bloody Beetroots, Drumcorps and Ki:Theory. Mondo Sex Head was curated and executive produced by Jason Bentley, Music Director at L.A.’s influential KCRW and Electronic Dance Music expert. Richard Bishop, co-executive producer of RE:GENERATION music project and documentary film, supervised the project. Each track was hand selected by Rob Zombie who road-tested many of the songs in his car, driving the L.A. streets.

Throughout his career, iconic music artist and auteur filmmaker Rob Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of music, film and publishing. Zombie, who has sold over fifteen million albums worldwide and has earned seven Grammy® nominations, is no stranger to repurposing his work, cross-fertilizing his fan base and generally pushing the limits of modern-day art. Over the years he has worked with outside DJs, remixers and producers starting with the 1992 remix of White Zombie’s first-ever, MTV-fueled hit, “Thunder Kiss ’65.”

I like the idea of taking songs and reconfiguring them,” says Zombie about the album, who is taking an alternative approach in the digital retail space. The album will be preceded by two separate, digital-only EPs, with tracks taken from Mondo Sex Head and exclusive bonus tracks.

With dubstep and rock rapidly banging heads together, Spinefarm’s Mondo Sex Head couldn’t arrive at a better time, featuring remixes from all corners of dance music by the likes of KoRn’s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis (“Thunder Kiss ‘65”), Photek (“Living Dead Girl”), Document One (“Let It All Bleed Out”), Ki:Theory (“Foxy Foxy” & “Pussy Liquor”), Big Black Delta (“More Human Than Human”), ††† aka Chino of Deftones (“Dragula”), Das Kapital (“Lords of Salem”), Drumcorps (“Never Gonna Stop”), former Glitch Mob member Kraddy (“Superbeast”) and the Bloody Beetroots (“Burn”), among others. Zombie credits the idea for the album to a conversation with his manager, Andy Gould, who told him he was constantly hearing DJs incorporate samples of Zombie’s music into their performance sets.

Rob Zombie’s Mondo Sex Head finds its creator returning to claim his legacy in the burgeoning world of electronic dance music. By bringing together music and film, rock and dance, arena mosh pits and club dance floors, Rob Zombie is proving a cultural phenomenon, with a fan base that is constantly growing.

ROB ZOMBIE ANNOUNCES NEW REMIX ALBUM 'MONDO SEX HEAD'...

Featuring Rob Zombie Favorites Remixed By Some Of Today’s Groundbreaking DJS On August 6, 2012, Universal Music will release Rob Zombie’s Mondo Sex Head, featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today’s top DJs, including KoRn’s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis, Photek, the Bloody Beetroots, Drumcorps and Ki:Theory.

The album will be preceded by two separate, digital-only EPs, with tracks taken from Mondo Sex Head and exclusive bonus tracks. Rob Zombie’s sound and style have always lent themselves to the dance and DJ culture, and he has previously released two remix albums—including 1996’s Supersexy Swingin Sounds, which featured songs from White Zombie’s previous albums as re-envisioned by the Dust Brothers, John Fryer, P.M. Dawn, Mike “Hitman” Wilson and Praga Khan, and others. Another collaborator on that album, Charlie Clouser, evolved into the band’s producer. American Made Music to Strip By came out in 1999, featuring remixes from Zombie’s ground-breaking Hellbilly Deluxe by Rammstein, Oliver Adams, DJ Lethal, Nine Inch Nails’ Chris Vrenna and Clouser.

Kobra And The Lotus Announce Debut Self-Titled Album

news feature

KOBRA AND THE LOTUS – the five-piece group fronted by powerful vocalist Kobra Paige – will release their debut, self-titled album on August 6th 2012 via Spinefarm Records.

Produced by Kevin Churko (whose previous credits include both Five Finger Death Punch & Ozzy Osbourne), this 10-track outing has an intentionally grand-scale dynamic, revelling in the glories of the genre and making its mark as arena rather than garage rock; precisely delivered music, still heavy with emotion.

Commenting on the record, songwriter & no-holds-barred performer Kobra divulged…

“Some of the songs do have more specific meanings – for example, ‘Heaven’s Veins’ is about addiction, ‘Calm Before the Storm’ is about children born into troubled situations, ‘pearls in the ashes’, and ‘50 Shades Of Evil’ is about greed, about the constant desire for more… but, by and large, the theme is one of hope, of finding a way through dark situations…

“I do have broad musical tastes, but by choice I’m a heavy metal fan, and I’m truly excited with the album we’ve just finished. It’s rooted in the great history of the music, the escapism and the larger than life imagery, which is something I’m very comfortable with, but it’s for a new generation too, and it’s delivered 100 per cent from the heart!

Rammstein send Metal Hammer a thank you note...

 

 

Rammstein send Metal Hammer a thank you note...

So the Rammstein boys won Best Live Band at this year’s epic Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, and they’ve just emailed us a nice little thank you message for all of their fans! Cheers, lads!

“Vielen Dank to Metal Hammer and to the readers of the magazine for this tremendous accolade. We’d love to have been there to collect the award, but rest assured, we will be returning to the UK. Metal Hammer has been a great supporter of Rammstein over the years, and that has meant a lot to us. To be honest, we weren’t sure if the UK would truly accept the band, but we now have wonderful friends and fans over there, and the last UK dates have been some of our favourite shows. Oh, and don’t play with fire… it can be dangerous!”
