In celebration of the show, VAMPS(JPN) will release the brand new single, ‘WORLD’S END’ (English ver. of ‘AHEAD’), via Spinefarm Records; last September, the VAMPS(JPN) international debut album, 'SEX BLOOD ROCK N' ROLL', was also put out through the Spinefarm label. This collection – containing tracks such as ‘REVOLUTION II’, ‘DEVIL SIDE’ & ‘VAMPIRE DEPRESSION’– saw key songs from the band’s career re-recorded in English, allowing new fans to rock out and sing along to VAMPS(JPN)’s heart-pumping music.
Says HYDE: "This international debut album that we gave ourselves entirely to is designed to export VAMPS to the world."
Following their appearance at Koko, VAMPS(JPN) will continue to build their UK fan-base throughout 2014, hoping to return for further live activity at some point during the year.

New Metsatöll album "Karjajuht" out in March
On March 7th Metsatöll will release their sixth studio album “Karjajuht” (“Pack Leader”).
On the new album Metsatöll has employed a new approach towards its traditional ideas and notions of folk metal. The average pace and tardy epics of its latest studio albums are now things of the past, while new tracks are energetic, melodic and seductive. Naturally, Metsatöll’s entire park of folk instruments from zithers to bagpipes is engaged as well.
The album’s front cover is traditionally created by recognized Estonian artist Jüri Arrak. While the previous two albums of Metsatöll included the artist’s earlier creations, then this time the painting was created especially for the album “Pack Leader”.
Karjajuht will be available in Europe as of March 7, in UK as of March 9. The exact release date in USA will be announced as soon as possible.
“Life is not given to us to suffer and wail, life is given for standing upright on your own two feet! For supporting those who are weaker than you, and to accept help from those who are greater than you. For keeping your own tribe and pride! Only when “me” becomes “us” can we stand strong! Together. Shoulder to shoulder, back to back!”
