Anneke Van Giersbergen Announces European Headline Tour

12. January 2014

Anneke van Giersbergen will embark on another European tour beginning on March
25th in Colmar, France.

The Dutch singer’s latest solo album ‘Drive’ was released this past September to
critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic and contains many songs tailor-made for
live performance.

"This set is a perfect mix of energetic rock songs, melancholic acoustic tunes and a
couple of The Gathering-era classics" enthuses Anneke about her current live show.
The tour will also feature singer Anna Murphy, who will support on all dates. The
member of Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie has just released her solo debut ‘Cellar
Darling’. "I’m very excited and honoured to be a part of this tour and I can’t think of a
better match to share the stage with" said Murphy.

THE NEW BLACK & DARK AGE auf Tour im Februar

5. December 2013

Im Februar gehen zwei hochkarätige und schlagkräftige Bands aus Deutschland zusammen auf Tour: Die Modern-Metaller DARK AGE und die Heavy Rock-Helden THE NEW BLACK.

Metal Hammer, Guitar und metal.de präsentieren:

2013-Tourposter-DarkAge_TheNewBlack"Out Of The Box Tour 2014"
DARK AGE + THE NEW BLACK + Local Supports

14.02.14 Aalen, Frape

Tickets: http://bit.ly/DATNBTickets

Die "Out Of The Box Tour 2014" führt durch fünf Städte und bietet zwei Bands, die sich noch nie groß um die Grenzen ihrer Genres kümmerten. So haben DARK AGE aus Hamburg auf ihrem aktuellen Album "A Matter Of Trust" mehr denn je den Song in den Mittelpunkt gestellt und ihren Metal bei aller Härte mit Hooklines versehen, wie es sonst nur wenige in ihrem Genre vermögen. Das Ergebnis: Platz 81 der deutschen Charts! THE NEW BLACK aus Würzburg wiederum stehen seit ihrer Gründung mittig zwischen Rock und Metal, Traditionellem und Moderne, und wechseln ungerührt die Lager. Im März schaffte es ihre Scheibe "III: Cut Loose" damit unter anderem auf die Spitzenposition der Amazon-Downloads für Rock & Metal.

DARK AGE starteten vor 18 Jahren als Death Metal-Band. Seit dem veröffentlichten die Norddeutschen sieben Alben und entwickelten ihren Stil zwischen Brachialität und elektronischer Griffigkeit fortwährend weiter, was unter anderem der Metal Hammer 2008 mit der Auszeichnung "Album des Monats" honorierte. Das Debüt von THE NEW BLACK erschien 2009, nachdem die Vorproduktion in gleich vier großen deutschen Magazinen zum "Demo des Monats" gewählt worden war. Die Band spielte in der Folge Shows mit AC/DC, Volbeat und Alter Bridge und veröffentlichte bisher drei Alben.

Tickets für die "Out Of The Box Tour 2014" sind ab sofort erhältlich an allen bekannten Vorverkaufsstellen sowie über fkpscorpio.com und eventim.de.

EKTOMORF to release new album “Retribution” on January 31st!

2. December 2013

Consistency, integrity and quality are words that first comes to mind when you hear the name EKTOMORF. One and a half years after the "Black Flag" album, it’s time to welcome the newest piece of work by the band around charismatic frontman Zoli Farkas.
"Retribution" again is a first-class "fist in your face" album, displaying heavy grooves and sheer power in the best of ways. Refining and bringing things to perfection was the goal, and this has been achieved impressively.

On the song "Numb And Sick", the band welcomes Ill Niño vocalist Cristian Machado as a guest, and his duet with Zoli give another new flavour to a record that clearly points out that EKTOMORF, even 20 years after its foundation in 1993, isEF_R-C_500x500 still a raging, energetic force with the intensity of a bulldozer. And the songs on "Retribution" will make their way into the band’s live set and become fan favourites quickly, be sure!
"Retribution" was again mixed and mastered y the band’s long-time producer Tue Madsen (Antfarm studios).

Track listing:
01. You Can’t Control Me
02. Ten Plagues
03. Face Your Fear
04. Escape
05. Who The Fuck Are You
06. Numb And Sick
07. Lost And Destroyed
08. Souls Of Fire
09. I Hate You
10. Watch Me
11. Mass Ignorance
12. Save Me
13. Whisper
14. Collapsed Bridge

DARK FUNERAL – final set of reissues available now; post entire live show video online!

2. December 2013

The final slab of re-issues by Swedish black metal masters DARK FUNERAL is out now in Europe and the US. Covering the albums “Diabolis Interium” (2001), “Attera Totus Sanctus” (2005) and “Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus” (2009), you can once again expect carefully done new editions of such majestic and hyperfast satanic metal masterpieces, which have been expanded with previously unseen photos from Lord Ahriman’s personal archive, extensive liner notes by Olivier “Zoltar” Badin (Terrorizer / Iron Fist), bonus material and revamped layouts. These albums are available as CD (at mid-price!), LP and Digital Download.

The black vinyl and exclusive golden vinyl (only 100 copies!) can be found at CMDistro, so better get them now: http://smarturl.it/darkfuneralcmd

As the bonus tracks and liner notes of these titles touch up on DARK FUNERAL’s special connection to South America, the band decided to put up a full show (originally released as part of the “Attera Orbis Terrarum – Part II” DVD) online for your infernal pleasure, Lord Ahriman comments:

“Usually using live tracks as bonus is a rather lame way to blow up a re-release but especially our recordings from South America are quite precious to us as the audience down there is really special, the sound is great and as you can read in the liner notes the strong following we met there during the mid-2000’s gave us an extra push during a rather troublesome time of the band. As the footage from the Buenos Aires show in ’06 hardly meets today’s visual standards, we thought why not give you over an hour of vintage blasphemy for free! Enjoy!”

FREEDOM CALL: New studio album Beyond out on 24 February 2014

29. November 2013

Return to the band’s traditional fortes

Freedom Call_Band 1Good news from the Freedom Call camp: the German melodic metal band are scheduled to release their latest studio album, Beyond, on 24 February 2014 (Germany: 21 February 2014; USA: 4 March 2014). Chris Bay, the group’s vocalist and guitarist, has announced an offering consisting of 14 classy songs: "Stylistically, we have remained faithful to ourselves, in fact we’ve even returned to a slightly more traditional direction. I think that’s probably the result of recent tours, where we had lots of fun with the classic Freedom Call numbers, which not only a lot of our faithful fans from the band’s early days will appreciate."

Beyond was recorded by the current line-up featuring Chris Bay, Lars Rettkowitz (guitar), Ilker Ersin (bass) and Ramy Ali (drums) at the Separate Studios in Nuremberg and Freedom Call’s own studio. The album was produced by Chris Bay and Stephan Ernst.

Along with the album release, there will be a video clip to support ‘Union Of The Strong’, along with ‘Knights Of Taragon’ and ‘Colours Of Freedom’ a typical Freedom Call number. Chris Bay promises a perceptible musical development with lots of interesting accents and a number of surprises: "’Dance Off The Devil’ – the ‘off’ is consciously spelled with a double ‘f’ – with its African rhythms and mystic grooves may sound slightly unusual, but it perfectly suits the album title, which is meant in a spiritual sense." More information on this and the brilliantly designed cover artwork to follow.

ARTILLERY launches official video clip for title track of new album ‘Legions’!

14. November 2013

Danish Powerhouse ARTILLERY has just launched the first official video clip in support of their new album Legions! Click HERE to check out the video clip for the title track which was directed by Morten Sandberg Madsen!

Comments ARTILLERY’s Michael Stützer: "The video for the tittle track of ‘Legions’ was made in Randers, a little town in Jutland, Denmark! We had a lot of fun recording it, it’s a story of a warrior who went home from the war to fight all her demons, but never really left the Legions! It turned out to be a great Video we are very proud of!"

Make also sure to surf over to the landing page at www.metalblade.com/artillery where you can stream the first single Chill My Bones and check out the pre-order options for Legions! There are also shirt bundles available!

Surf over to Metal Hammer’s site to check out the lyric video for Wardrum Heartbeat, the second single off Legions!

Legions will be released as a limited edition Digipak with two bonus tracks, jewelcase-cd, on vinyl and as a digital download on the 22nd of November!

Denmark’s ARTILLERY is easily appointed one of Europe’s earliest exponents of Thrash Metal, and the band’s contribution to the bourgeoning genre is difficult to ignore. The Danish quartet successfully managed to fuse an abrasive brutality with technicality and strong melodies, with the noteworthy guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights.

ARTILLERY was formed in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Since then ARTILLERY have gone thru numerous line-up changes and released six studio longplayers. The first period of ARTILLERY’s existence gave the World the three classic albums Fear of Tomorrow, Terror Squad and By Inheritance featuring some of the finest moments of Thrash Metal Europe has ever put out.

After an eight-year hiatus ARTILLERY returned in style in 1999, sounding as fresh and hungry as ever before without sounding like one of those nostalgia acts. The three albums B.A.C.K., When Death Comes and My Blood put ARTILLERY not only back on the map, but also to the top of their genre.

Since the release of their last album My Blood in 2011 ARTILLERY have played European and South American tours and appeared at several festivals and the Barge To Hell cruise. In 2012 ARTILLERY saw the departure of Carsten N. Nielsen and Søren Adamsen. Two new members were recruited, making Josua Madsen the new drummer and Michael Bastholm Dahl the new singer.

ARTILLERY posts video with studio footage of recordings for new album ‘Legions’!

16. October 2013

Danish Thrashers ARTILLERY have just posted a video on their youtube with some inside-the-studio footage. Click HERE to check it out!

Artillery-LegionsComments Legions producer Soren Andersen: "If you’re a hardcore Artillery fan, you won’t be disappointed when you hear the forth coming album. Classic Artillery, but with new elements. A new drummer, a new singer, 10 new songs, great lyrics, killer riffs etc… We did the album in 3 weeks, without looking back. There is so much new energy this time, and the band plays better than ever. One reason: They are touring more than ever. This is a real metal band that plays real music for the right reason. They don’t give a damn about the fame, the look or the party… It’s all about the music. That’s how I see them, and that’s the vibe when we are working together. The new drummer Jos is a monster drummer with feel, swing, attitude and skills. I find that very giving for the band, and he’s a great guy, too. Likewise, Michael fits the band perfectly. His voice is very big and very classic. He has his own perfect spot between Soren and Flemming, and again: Great lyrics! Hope you’ll enjoy the album as much as I did in the process of the creation!"

Legions will be released as a limited edition Digipak with two bonus tracks, jewelcase-cd, on vinyl and as a digital download.

Comments ARTILLERY: "With the release of ‘Legions’ we feel that we have played our strongest card since the early days of ‘By Inheritance’. With a killer production, some great new songs done by a strong and dedicated line-up, we are looking forward to support ‘Legions’ all the way! We can’t wait to tour and meet the Legions of thrashers out there! This album is for you!"

Denmark’s ARTILLERY is easily appointed one of Europe’s earliest exponents of Thrash Metal, and the band’s contribution to the bourgeoning genre is difficult to ignore. The Danish quartet successfully managed to fuse an abrasive brutality with technicality and strong melodies, with the noteworthy guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights.

ARTILLERY was formed in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Since then ARTILLERY have gone thru numerous line-up changes and released six studio longplayers. The first period of ARTILLERY’s existence gave the World the three classic albums Fear of Tomorrow, Terror Squad and By Inheritance featuring some of the finest moments of Thrash Metal Europe has ever put out.

After an eight-year hiatus ARTILLERY returned in style in 1999, sounding as fresh and hungry as ever before without sounding like one of those nostalgia acts. The three albums B.A.C.K., When Death Comes and My Blood put ARTILLERY not only back on the map, but also to the top of their genre.

Since the release of their last album My Blood in 2011 ARTILLERY have played European and South American tours and appeared at several festivals and the Barge To Hell cruise. In 2012 ARTILLERY saw the departure of Carsten N. Nielsen and Søren Adamsen. Two new members were recruited, making Josua Madsen the new drummer and Michael Bastholm Dahl the new singer.
