Von Hertzen Brothers, will release their sixth studio album early next year via Spinefarm Records.

 

Following the outstanding critical acclaim afforded their last full-length release, ‘Nine Lives’ (2013), the brothers – MikkoKieJonne Von Hertzen – are now back in the studio doing pre-production, this time with Grammy-nominated Canadian producer Garth ‘GGGarth’ Richardson (Biffy Clyro, Atreyu, Rage Against The Machine, etc.), plus regular drummer Mikko Kaakkuriniemi and keyboard player Juha Kuoppala.

 

Once pre-production is complete, VHB will head across to Canada where recording will start in September; the studio chosen for the task at hand is The Farm (owned and operated by Richardson) in Vancouver – previously the world-renowned Little Mountain Sound Studio, past home to acts such as AerosmithAC/DCMetallica and The Cult.

 

Mixing, meanwhile, is set to be handled by Canadian Randy Staub, a Juno Awards-winner whose previous credits include some of the biggest names in rock and metal, the likes of Metallica, Alice In Chains, etc

 

Says Garth“Working with Von Hertzen Brothers is a dream come true. Besides being the coolest people on the planet, they are one of the hardest working bands I know. This is a record that will be on everyone's iPod, phone and turntable. Turn it up loud and get ready to rock. They are going to tear it up!”

 

Mikko Von Hertzen adds: “For the past five years, we’ve been working hard on building an international set up, and now, with our sixth album on the way, the collective feeling is that we need to up it a gear and just go for it! From the outset, the idea was to find a producer who knows his stuff, is experienced, has a vision, and thus something concrete to offer our music. With Garth, things clicked from the first meeting, and what was really encouraging was his enthusiasm for our new material. Of course, we’re really looking forward to recording in a studio like The Farm – there’s legendary vibes in that place! But it’s even more thrilling to create our music with a top-of-the-line team. Randy Staub is another world class pro who needs no introducing. The work of Randy Garth simply speaks for itself!”

 

Further details of this forthcoming record will be revealed in due course.

ELECTRIC WIZARD REVEAL BRAND NEW TRACK, ‘SADIOWITCH’

HEADLINE UK SHOW ANNOUNCED FOR OCTOBER 23RD IN MANCHESTER

ELECTRIC FUCKIN’ WIZARD have revealed a second track from their forthcoming full-length album, ‘TIME TO DIE’, set for release via Spinefarm Records on September 29th.

 

ELECTRIC WIZARD REVEAL BRAND NEW TRACK, ‘SADIOWITCH’

Titled ‘SadioWitch’ and featuring the line ‘the black drug took my soul away’, the song will be accompanied by a video, currently being edited. Little is known about the clip, although it is believed to feature (encouragingly) both ‘nudity’ & ‘explosions’.

 “Sadiowitch is about death by lust and indulgence. As life becomes disillusioning it is reassuring to turn to 'lifes luxuries'…sex and drugs. But, of course, over indulgence leads to emaciation, weakness and death. The song is short and sweet just like this particular form of death. There are many choices but only one outcome. Choose wisely…” – Jus Oborn

 

A limited edition 7” version of ‘SadioWitch’ is also being planned, with a previously unreleased piece of music on the B-side.

 ‘TIME TO DIE’ is the eighth full-length offering from the masters of aural punishment, and their first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.

FINCH TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM BACK TO OBLIVION ON SEPTEMBER 29TH 2014

 

* Finch playing UK shows this week *

                  

Two Guns To The Temple” will be available to download from the 18th August.

FINCH TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM BACK TO OBLIVION ON SEPTEMBER 29TH 2014

Back To Oblivion marks the return of Finch with the band’s first full length album in over nine years. The Southern California band has undeniably created a lasting, formidable body of work with their two studio albums and EPs - singer Nate Barcalow acknowledges that 2002’s What It Is To Burn all but “defined post-hardcore early in the decade”, while 2005’s Say Hello To Sunshine continued to shape its direction. The band dignified the demand for a celebration of What It Is To Burn’s 10th anniversary by reforming after a hiatus and playing select sold-out shows across the country in 2013. Inspired by the creative surge brought on by these shows, Finch rendered these contradictions moot with Back To Oblivion, their long-awaited third LP and a new, bold chapter in the band’s legacy. Back To Oblivion itself is a paradoxical idea. This is Finch reinvigorated, brimming with the inspiration of their earliest days; the opposite of the negation implied by “oblivion”. But as a songwriting unit, they’re challenging themselves by going deep into the unknown - this is by far Finch’s most introspective and demanding work from a lyrical standpoint. The album was produced by Brian Virtue (Deftones, 30 Seconds To Mars, Jane’s Addiction, Audioslave). 

This past summer, Finch returned to the Warped Tour as a respected veteran; this was once a scene where they had been the newcomer with something to prove.  Finch will play the following UK shows this week:

Wednesday 13th August               London Underworld

Thursday 14th August                   Kingston Banquet Records (Acoustic Set)

Friday 15th August                          Hevy Festival (headline set)

PROTEST THE HERO RELEASE ‘MIST’ VIDEO TODAY

Protest The Hero today release the video for ‘Mist’ – a track from the band’s fourth studio album, ‘Volition’, out now via Spinefarm Records.  

PROTEST THE HERO RELEASE ‘MIST’ VIDEO TODAY

Shot in the Canadian province of Newfoundland & Labrador, ‘Mist’ is an 8½ minute mini-movie spotlighting a part of the world that contains some of the band’s most dedicated fans.  Newfoundland is not included on most tour itineraries, but repeated visits by Protest The Hero has given birth to one of the Ontario group’s most raucous fan-bases. 

 

Guitarist Luke Hoskin comments:

 

“Making this video came in two parts. Originally, the plan was to film an ‘Island Tour’. We pestered our friend / promoter Johnny to book us as many shows on the island as possible. Begrudgingly, he dug us up two additional shows to the typical BIG St. John's date. We hauled everything we could in two small minivans, and a gaggle of our wonderful NFLD friends tagged along in a couple of separate vehicles. It felt more like a carnival than a tour – our motorcade invading gas stations and rest stops along the way. It wouldn't have been the same without all those familiar faces to help us at every step. When we were done, though, it felt like something was missing...

 

“Since the original idea was to film the tour and make the 'Mist' video from all that footage, our job was done right? We were close, but we felt like we had left out the most beautiful part of the island – the island itself! So we returned. And we made sure to capture some of our favourite spots in the St. John's area. 

 

“As expected, we were welcomed with open arms, and the unbridled enthusiasm we have come to expect from this place. It was an amazing feeling to make

a video for the song about the place you love the most. It was even more amazing to fall further in love while shooting. I am constantly reminded of the friendships we have made there, and am ever thankful for the reception we have experienced. There is something truly magnetic about this place – don't go unless you plan on returning many times.”

 

‘Mist’ is the fifth official video from ‘Volition’, following lyric videos for ‘Clarity’ and ‘A Life Embossed’, plus conceptual videos for ‘Underbite’ & ‘Tilting Against Windmills’

 

PTH will continue to tour through to the end of 2014, with headline dates in the UK & Ireland already on sale for November / December; in addition, the band will be playing shows in Australia, South Africa & Europe.

 

The video for ‘Mist’ is below:-

Amaranthe to release Third Album MASSIVE ADDICTIVE via Spinefarm Records on October 20th

Gothenburg, Sweden's Amaranthe, known for fusing melodic metal with elements of EDM, will release their third album MASSIVE ADDICTIVE via Spinefarm Records on October 20th

Amaranthe to release Third Album MASSIVE ADDICTIVE via Spinefarm Records on October 20th

MASSIVE ADDICTIVE is true to its title. The band's signature, larger-than-life sound, comprised of kinetic riffing, pulsating beats and celestial, melodic choruses, remains intact, but the album finds Amaranthe continuing to explore a range of dynamics and with a willingness to push themselves even further.

 

The songs that populate MASSIVE ADDICTIVE are so incredibly catchy that they will take up residency in your brain for hours after you've turned the music off, and you will find yourself humming the melodies or singing the choruses long after you've stopped listening to them. MASSIVE ADDICTIVE is that memorable and that catchy.


MASSIVE ADDICTIVE was tracked at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark, with the sound sorcerer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica) at the helm.

 

The 12-song album is a flawlessly executed clinic of masterfully and carefully crafted modern metal, boasting Olof Mörck's surgically precise riffs and soaring solos alongside Morten Løwe Sørensen's rhythmic thrust and Johan Andreassen's booming low-frequency assault. Elise Ryd's vocals are as emotive and empowering as ever, filling the room, while Jake E's melodic vocals are an outpouring of power. New screamer Henrik Englund Wilhelmsson puts his stamp on the material, as well.

 

The sound is both massive and addictive, from the unforgettable, driving sounds of "Drop Dead Cynical" to the anthemic title track to the stadium-sized soar of "Digital World" to the emotionally haunting power semi-ballad "True." MASSIVE ADDICTIVE is an exercise in dynamics and is one that refuses to play by any sort of genre-specific, prescribed rules.

 

"We have lived and breathed this album every hour and every day the last year, and to know that this music is about to reach everyone's ears is beyond exciting," guitarist Mörck enthused about MASSIVE ADDICTIVE. "Following the first leg of The Nexus World Tour, we sat down and agreed that we wanted the next album to be really fresh, new and even to raise a few eyebrows, all while retaining our signature sound."

 

He continued, "MASSIVE ADDICTIVE is in every way that huge leap forward we wanted to achieve; the album definitely contains our strongest song-writing to date. The press often asks us to 'describe the album in three words'; this time, the answer is simple - it's MASSIVE, it's ADDICTIVE and, most importantly, it's AMARANTHE!"

 

MASSIVE ADDICTIVE Track-listing

 

1. "Dynamite"

2. "Drop Dead Cynical"

3. "Trinity"

4. "Massive Addictive"

5. "Digital World"

6. "True"

7. "Unreal"

8. "Over and Done"

9. "Danger Zone"

MACHINAE SUPREMACY announce new album 'phantom shadow'

Swedish modern rockers confirm release of new / sixth studio album, ‘Phantom Shadow’, for August 25th via Spinefarm Records

Produced & mixed by vocalist Robert Stjarnstrom, who helped form the band back in 2000, ‘Phantom Shadow’ is the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Rise Of A Digital Nation’ (also released via Spinefarm), and sees MS continuing to pursue their own musical path…

MACHINAE SUPREMACY announce new album 'phantom shadow'

This time around, they have delivered an altogether deeper, more intricate, multi-layered body of work; a conceptual release – complete with cellos, violins, guest vocals & spoken word passages – detailing a story (in Stjarnstrom’s head since 2003 and reflected in the album art) that is likely to continue through the next full-length release as well.

In essence, this futuristic narrative touches on man’s use of technology and the quest for greater, ‘super’ powers, and it’s a tale told with considerable flair and the usual strong grasp on choruses and melodies; UK guitarist Mike Dawes – one of the world’s finest ‘finger-style’ players – guests on the track ‘Europa’, and the 16 musical passages (including video track ‘Renegades’) come across like the soundtrack to the kind of cleverly-plotted, fast-paced movie that will keep you guessing until the very end…

As for playing these new songs live, Machinae Supremacy – who toured the UK with Children Of Bodom back in 2011 – are planning a return in October, exact dates tbc; in the meantime, ‘Phantom Shadow’ provides plenty of topics for discussion, and plenty of music to both bang and scratch the head to!

We’re delighted that Buffalo Summer and Massive can join us, because we want each of the shows to be a full-on experience from beginning to end. A proper night of rock ‘n’ roll, no half-measures!”

GODSMACK REVEAL ‘GENERATION DAY’, THE SECOND TRACK FROM NEW ALBUM ‘1000HP’

‘1000hp’ set for international release on September 1st, 2014 via Spinefarm Records…

Multi-platinum US rockers GODSMACK reveal ‘Generation Day’, the second track to be taken from forthcoming studio album ‘1000HP’, the follow-up to 2010’s ‘The Oracle’.

Listen to ‘Generation Day’ here: https://soundcloud.com/spinefarmrecords/godsmack-generation-day

1000HP’ will be released on September 1st via Spinefarm Records, and is available for pre-order at the following links:-

GODSMACK REVEAL ‘GENERATION DAY’, THE SECOND TRACK FROM NEW ALBUM ‘1000HP’

Since the release of their self-titled debut (1998), the Boston quartet – Sully Erna (lead vocals / guitar), Shannon Larkin (drums), Robbie Merrill (bass) & Tony Rombola (lead guitar) – have notched up a remarkable set of facts ‘n’ stats in the US and beyond: these include 4 Grammy nominations, 4 Platinum Awards, 20 million records sold, 3 consecutive US #1 albums, unmatched airplay records at radio, and many more…

“I think you can hear a real hunger in the sound,” says Erna. “We’re all pretty fired up at the moment, and that extends to taking our music overseas. It’s time to give some real focus to our touring activities outside of North America, and we think this new single will make our intentions clear. It’s one for the fans, and that means our fans everywhere…”

Produced & mixed by Dave Fortnam (Slipknot, Evanescence, etc.) working closely with Erna, ‘1000HP’ (the album) was recorded in Godsmack’s new HQ just 30 minutes from the heart of Boston, and the band’s calling-card weight, groove, power and spiritual tone are in evidence throughout, tempered here an’ there by more reflective moments, and – in certain cases – something of a new drift.

CHTHONIC BREAK NEW GROUND FOR MAIN-STAGE APPEARANCE AT WACKEN FESTIVAL ON AUGUST 1st, MIXING THEIR UNIQUE BRAND OF METAL WITH A CLASSICAL ORIENTAL ORCHESTRA…

EAST ASIA’s premier Metallers, CHTHONIC, return to the Wacken Open Air festival on Friday, August 1st, and this time they’re not coming alone…

For their third appearance at Germany’s premier metal event, CHTHONIC – based in Taiwan – will celebrate their first-ever main-stage appearance (the ‘Black Stage’) by combining their exotic brand of hard rock with the Chai Found Oriental Orchestra, who perform using a variety of traditional instruments, including hena, ruan, box zither, pipa, yangqin, flute & sheng.

CHTHONIC BREAK NEW GROUND FOR MAIN-STAGE APPEARANCE AT WACKEN FESTIVAL ON AUGUST 1st, MIXING THEIR UNIQUE BRAND OF METAL WITH A CLASSICAL ORIENTAL ORCHESTRA…

The Chai Found Oriental Orchestra is an award-wining group who have appeared onstage with CHTHONIC in the past, performing four songs at a selection of concerts in Taiwan; these special events were duly recorded / filmed, and form the basis of CHTHONIC’s Ián-bú’ DVD, released in February of this year.

For the 45-minute Wacken show, however, the orchestra will be expanded from four musicians to 10, to make the overall experience that much greater – ‘Orient Metal’ meets traditional Asian musicians, with both sides delivering to the max!

“We are very much looking forward to returning to Wacken,” says CHTHONIC bassist, Doris Yeh. “It’s a legendary festival with a great history, and we see this as a very important stage in our music career. We've been using lots of traditional sounds over the past seven studio albums… this time, we will bring both an oriental orchestra plus a VJ to play the show! We hope to give fans a truly unforgettable memory!”

In addition to the Wacken appearance, CHTHONIC have a number of other major festivals lined up for the summer, including  Brutal Assault (Czech Republic) and Summer Sonic (Tokyo & Osaka, Japan); last year, the band played more than 70 concerts in Europe and the US, and previously they have appeared at Ozzfest (US), Fuji Rock & Loud Park (Japan) and Download & Bloodstock (UK).

Once their summer touring schedule is complete, CHTHONIC – who have played more than 500 concerts in the past 10 years – will return to Taiwan to start work on a new movie project (a comedy in which the band members play themselves), after which pre-production for the next studio album will kick in.

With CHTHONIC, there’s never a dull moment – and certainly never a quiet one!

ELECTRIC WIZARD PREMIERE NEW TRACK “I AM NOTHING”

FIRST LISTEN TO MUSIC FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM “TIME TO DIE”

Electric Wizard, who recently revealed the title and artwork for their Spinefarm Records debut album, premiere the first new music from “Time to Die” with the song "I am Nothing", streaming now via the Spinefarm Records Soundcloud…

ELECTRIC WIZARD PREMIERE NEW TRACK “I AM NOTHING”

EW guitarist / vocalist Jus Oborn has said of the track, which harnesses the dark underground death metal spirit of 1984:-

"It was the year I became a metal-head. It was heavy shit for real – there was no way you were ever going to get a decent job. So I became a Satanist, I dug up a grave, I got into tape-trading, I had a one-man noise/black/death metal band called Regurgitated Guts, and there were loads of documentaries on TV warning us not to listen to the devil's music..."

Produced by Oborn, the new album was recorded at Toe Rag Studios in East London, with analogue gear used exclusively throughout, with finishing touches done at Skyhammer Studio in "deepest, darkest" Cheshire by Chris Fielding.

GODSMACK announce new studio album "1000hp"

Multi-platinum US rockers move into the fast lane for sixth studio album, ‘1000hp’, set for international release via Spinefarm Records on September 1st 2014
GODSMACK announce new studio album "1000hp"

FEW BANDS have so consistently and successfully championed the cause of hard rock as Godsmack.

Since the release of their self-titled debut (1998), the Boston quartet – Sully Erna (lead vocals / guitar), Shannon Larkin (drums), Robbie Merrill (bass) & Tony Rombola (lead guitar) – have notched up a remarkable set of facts ‘n’ stats in the US and beyond: these include 4 Grammy nominations, 4 Platinum Awards, 20 million records sold, 3 consecutive US #1 albums, unmatched airplay records at radio, and many more…

Now, in 2014, The ’Smack are back with both a new single– ‘1000hp’, a #1 debut on the US iTunes Rock Chart – plus a rekindled desire to take their signature sound to the international arena, with the single a potent point of attack… Listen to the ‘1000hp’ single below.

“I think you can hear a real hunger in the sound,” says Erna. “We’re all pretty fired up at the moment, and that extends to taking our music overseas. It’s time to give some real focus to our touring activities outside of North America, and we think this new single will make our intentions clear. It’s one for the fans, and that means our fans everywhere…”

Taken from the forthcoming album of the same name, the follow-up to 2010’s ‘The Oracle’ (one of the aforementioned chart-toppers), ‘1000hp’ sees Godsmack in fifth gear right from the start – a raw, thrashy, punked-up call-to-arms that documents the band’s journey from the Boston clubs, promoting a debut album recorded over a weekend for $2600, to the arenas of the world.

That first outing was subsequently picked up by Republic Records/Universal and has now sold in excess of 5 million copies, but it’s the backs-to-the-wall struggle of the early days that Godsmack sought to tap into for ‘1000hp’, single and album alike…

“Yeah, we made a conscious decision to go back to the streets of Boston for this one,” reflects Erna. “It doesn’t just capture the spirit of the city. It’s GODSMACK!”

“It’s a kick-ass rock tune from what I feel is our most kickass record!” says Larkin about the single, which leads off the album. “There’s a punk edge and a different energy.”

Produced & mixed by Dave Fortnam (Slipknot, Evanescene, etc.) working closely with Erna, ‘1000hp’ (the album) was recorded in Godsmack’s new HQ just 30 minutes from the heart of Boston, and the band’s calling-card weight, groove, power and spiritual tone are in evidence throughout, tempered here an’ there by more reflective moments, and – in certain cases – something of a new drift.

But it’s ‘1000hp’, the single, that sets the tone for the record (10 tracks, plus bonus cut ‘Life Is Good’), with its “bad ass” ’65 Chevelle engine bursts and “turn that sh*t up louder!” refrain, and it must surely feature in the live set when the band hit the road for the US ‘Uproar Festival’ tour this August.

In the past, the four have appeared at a host of major events (Ozzfest, Mayhem, etc.), and toured alongside some of rock’s foremost legends, the likes of Black Sabbath and Metallica; now it’s time for Godsmack to build their story on a truly global scale, with European dates already being discussed.

“We’ve had some great experiences playing overseas in the past,” concludes Erna, “and we can’t wait to return to the roads of Europe and beyond. The new single looks back to our earliest days as a band, when we were starting to build a following, so our history is all about growing the Godsmack name through hard work and hard touring. We’re ready to show everyone what Godsmack stands for!”

In the meantime, “turn that sh*t up louder!” seems as good advice as any.

ELECTRIC WIZARD UNVEIL ‘TIME TO DIE’ AS TITLE OF FORTHCOMING STUDIO ALBUM

+ OFFICIAL ARTWORK REVEALED
ELECTRIC WIZARD UNVEIL ‘TIME TO DIE’ AS TITLE OF FORTHCOMING STUDIO ALBUM

Electric Wizard have today announced ‘TIME TO DIE’ as the title of their forthcoming studio album; ‘TIME TO DIE’ is the eighth full-length offering from the masters of aural punishment, and is testament to the fact that Electric ‘fucking’ Wizard continue to be the most uncompromisingly heavy, genuinely twisted and evil band in the world.

This will be their first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.

Says EW founding member, Jus Oborn:-

“All of our albums in the past have had a theme – revenge, drugs, black magick – and the theme of this one is death. Of course, death to us really means rebirth, so this album is a manifestation of a very primal occult belief in the final sacrifice. We have gone full circle – it was inevitable, but we had to do it. We had to kill the band so we could be reborn. It was the only way to ensure we could come back even stronger.”

The artwork, once again created by Oborn, is an extension of the theme; this is further solidified by the LP gatefold image, to be revealed at a later date.

Electric Wizard, who have just played at Hellfest in France, have the following festival appearances lined up for 2014, with more shows to be added:-

July 3rd Roskilde Festival, Roskilde, Denmark (Arena Stage)
July 4th Sonisphere, Knebworth Park, UK (stage headline)
Aug 16th Jabberwocky, The Excel Centre, London, UK
Sep 12th Reverence Valada, Portugal (headline with Hawkwind)
Oct 10th – 12th Desertfest, Antwerp, Belgium

ELECTRIC WIZARD are here for REVENGE.....BE AFRAID.....

MICHAEL MONROE accepts 'Inspiration' Award at the Metal Hammer 'Golden Gods'

MICHAEL MONROE accepts 'Inspiration' Award at the 12th annual Metal Hammer 'Golden Gods' in London on behalf of Hanoi Rocks

MICHAEL MONROE accepts 'Inspiration' Award at the Metal Hammer 'Golden Gods'

Michael Monroe, one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most iconic frontman, was presented with the coveted ‘Inspiration’ Award at Metal Hammer’s annual ‘Golden Gods’ event, held last night – June 16th – at Indigo (at the O2 Arena) in London; he accepted the Award on behalf of legendary Finnish outfit, Hanoi Rocks.

Monroe first came to fame as frontman of the ground-breaking group, renowned for their strong song-writing, flamboyant image (onstage and off), explosive live performances and punk spirit; over the years, Hanoi Rocks have come to be recognised as a huge influence on the more colourful / abandoned side of rock, with many of the genre’s biggest names citing them as a prime source of inspiration.

It was fitting that Monroe – currently leading his own band of hand-picked players – should be invited to London to collect the Award (“one of the most prestigious of the evening, only given to those whose role in our world will continue to influence for years to come”); not only is original Hanoi Rocks bassist, Sami Yaffa, still a part of Monroe’s live and recording band, but his touring set continues to feature choice moments from the revered Hanoi catalogue…

Monroe: “It’s really nice to know that, we, Hanoi Rocks continue to have a positive impact on the rock’n’roll scene of today. This award is a great honour and truly appreciated. So, on behalf of Razzle, whose great spirit still lives on, Gyp Casino, Nasty Suicide, Andy McCoy, Sami Yaffa and myself - thank you!”

Monroe is currently playing the European festival circuit with his own band, performing extensively throughout the summer. His current album, ‘Horns And Halos’, is available now via Spinefarm Records.
