Finland's All-Star Symphonic Rock Christmas Project Raskasta Joulua to Release 'Ragnarok Juletide'

Out on November 11
Finland's All-Star Symphonic Rock Christmas Project Raskasta Joulua to Release 'Ragnarok Juletide'

(New York, N.Y.):  Happy Holidays, headbangers! It's not going to be a "White Christmas" this year. Instead, it'll be a "Heavy Christmas."

 

Finland's annual, all-star symphonic Christmas rock project, dubbed Raskasta Joulua, which translates to "Heavy Christmas," is enjoying its 10th year running. To celebrate, the project, which tours every holiday season, will release a new studio album this year. The album, titled Ragnarok Juletide, releases on November 11 via Spinefarm Records.  Get a taste HERE.

 

But this is not just another set of ho-ho-ho-hum takes on holiday songs nor is it a collection of predictable, safe versions of seasonal jams! For the first time ever, these versions of Finnish and international Christmas classics will also be recorded in the English language.

 

Raskasta Joulua is inspired by Trans-Siberian Orchestra and the participants view the project in serious fashion, which is not always true of Christmas-themed collections. There is nothing novelty or jokey about this project or this release. Don't expect familiar holiday favorites to be given a weak makeover or merely amplified by distorted guitars that have been added to give the Christmas jams a "rock" feel. That would be a Christmas cop out.

 

Instead, the record truly and effectively captures the majesty, the wonder and the glory of the holiday season; the songs are carefully arranged and executed, with flawless musicianship and world-class vocal contributions.

 

Ragnarok Juletide will put headbangers in the most festive of moods, regardless of which metal subgenre he or she prefers, from speedy power metal to symphonic epics to dirgey doom. It's all here on this year's Ragnarok Juletide.

 

Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot, Northern Kings), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica, Northern Kings), Elize Ryd ( Amaranthe), Jarkko Ahola ( Teräsbetoni, Northern Kings), Antti Railio

(2013 Voice of Finland winner) and more lend their throats to the project.

 

"It's amazing that we're still doing this and that it has grown to these proportions," said founder/producer/arranger/guitarist Erkka Korhonen. "Every year has been bigger for us and now the tour is one of the biggest annual treks in Finland."

 

Indeed, the accompanying tour is an event and a highlight on the annual holiday calendar for fans of all age groups. The project has progressed in size and scope each and every year, in both popularity and the prestige of the participants. The concert tour now runs for more than a month before the holiday season and plays to full arenas and ice stadiums.

 

Overall, Ragnarok Juletide is the definitive collection of holiday hymns for headbangers. This is how you've always wanted to hear Christmas music, but most artists have lacked the balls to do it this way.

 

Korhonen furthered, "Even people who haven't celebrated Christmas for years have found its spirit again through what we do. Since we've expanded the vocalist lineup every year, the audience wants to hear our new vocalists on the record. It'll be fantastic to bring these songs into other countries too!"

TOOTHGRINDER SIGN TO SPINEFARM RECORDS

BAND RELEASING SCHIZOPHRENIC JUBILEE EP ON NOVEMBER 4 - TOURING WITH PERIPHERY THROUGH THE FALL
TOOTHGRINDER SIGN TO SPINEFARM RECORDS

Spinefarm Records is thrilled to announce the signing of New Jersey quintet Toothgrinder. The band is already incredibly active, armed with a brand new EP and a tour that is happening currently.
 
Toothgrinder will release its label debut in the form of the Schizophrenic Jubilee EP, which was produced, mixed and mastered by Taylor Larson (Periphery, Darkest Hour). The release date is November 4.

For a taste of what’s to come, check out "The Hour Angle" here
 
Additionally, Toothgrinder are on tour with Periphery, The Contortionist and Intervals through October. 
 
Toothgrinder will continue to push heavy metal into the future with their unusual song structures, torrents of riffs and scaled-the-bowels-of-hell vocal attack. But it's not all metallic fists and fury; the band's music is smartly crafted and it is sonically provocative. In fact, their music sounds like the result of spending too many Friday nights in July in bottlenecked, bumper-to-bumper traffic on the Garden State Parkway. You've got to let that frustration out somehow and it's as though Toothgrinder took their frustration out on their instruments.
 
Toothgrinder vocalist Justin Matthews said, "Toothgrinder were birthed from a brotherhood of musicians who wanted nothing more than to create aggressive energy and deviate from the status quo. The bond that five best friends initiated through childhood will forever last a lifetime. Through blood, sweat and tears, our family has taken on an endeavor that was never thought possible. Our perseverance and tenacity would not be shown to the world without our good friends in Outerloop and Spinefarm. We could not be happier."
 
Spinefarm Director of A&R Darren Dalessio, who signed the band, said, "We are very excited to officially welcome Toothgrinder to the Spinefarm roster!  From the first moment I listened to Schizophrenic Jubilee, I knew the band was a force to be reckoned with. They truly have a unique sound and vision, and this is only just the beginning of where these guys plan on taking their music. Expect great things from Toothgrinder in 2015!"
 
Toothgrinder Tour Dates:
 
09/25 Birmingham, AL – Zydeco
09/26 Charleston, SC – The Music Farm
09/27 Wilmington, NC – Ziggy’s By The Sea
09/28 Winston-Salem, NC – Ziggy’s
09/29 Richmond, VA – The Broadberry
09/30 Pittsburgh, PA – Altar Bar
10/02 London, ON – London Music Hall
10/03 Ottawa, ON – Ritual

10/07 Northampton, MA – Pearl Street
10/08 Poughkeepsie, NY – The Chance
10/10 Long Island, NY – Revolution Music Hall

SOEN TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM 'TELLURIAN' ON NOVEMBER 3

SOEN TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM 'TELLURIAN' ON NOVEMBER 3

SOEN

PROGRESSIVE MASTERS RETURN WITH NEW / SECOND STUDIO ALBUM,  ‘TELLURIAN’, SET FOR RELEASE VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS ON NOVEMBER 3rd 

IT’S HARD to put a handle on SOEN, but if progressive music is ‘entertainment for those who are easily bored’, then this Swedish outfit fits easily under that heading.

As forthcoming  / second studio album, ‘Tellurian’, makes plain, SOEN – that’s drummer Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth, Amon Amarth), vocalist Joel Ekelöf (Willowtree), guitarist Joakim Platbarzdis & bassist Stefan Stenberg – are not concerned with the simple or the shallow; their musical journey takes an altogether more ambitious path, and the result is an expansive body of work, wrapped up in the stunning art of Mexican painter José Luis López Galván, that consistently challenges without being ‘clever-clever’ or tough to enjoy.

The melodies are intricate, the playing muscular and the choruses soaring; overall, the feel is one of a band whose intent is very much in synch with the sort of core values (skilled musicianship, emotion over precision, importance of album artwork, etc.) that seem to be back in vogue…

Produced by Platbarzdis, mixed by the legendary / Grammy Award-winning David Bottrill (Tool, Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, King Crimson, etc.) and mastered at Bob Ludwig’s Gateway set-up in the US by Adam Ayan, also a Grammy winner, ‘Tellurian’ sees SOEN taking the approach of their ‘Cognitive’ debut (2012, Spinefarm Records) and pushing the boundaries in terms of musical scope, the whole thing shot through with the confidence of a band who have found their voice.

Rhythmic, experimental and flowing, and with the ‘muso’ side never taking precedence over a good song and a telling chorus, ‘Tellurian’ (‘relating to, or inhabiting the earth’) will appeal to anyone with an ear for quality playing, and there’s further reward to be had below the surface, with the lyrics taking a more direct route than on ‘Cognitive’, and the construction of the material – including first single / video ‘Tabula Rasa’ (‘Clean Slate’) – allowing room for the raw emotion to shine through.

Music for the head and the heart.
