The Outer Ones sees Revocation pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever. “I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date,” states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. “Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.” Moving away from the societal and historical themes that informed 2016′s Great is Our Sin, this time Davidson has immersed himself in the fantastic, evoking one of the great writers of the sci-fi/horror genre. “The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”

Redemption launches video for new single, “Someone Else’s Problem”, online

– July 10th, 2018 –

On July 27th, Redemption will release their seventh full-length album, Long Night’s Journey into Day – the first to be produced with Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Doro, etc.). For a preview of Long Night’s Journey into Day, the band has launched a video for the new single, “Someone Else’s Problem” (directed by Patric Ulleaus / Revolver Films; Evergrey, Amaranthe, Dimmu Borgir, Europe, Arch Enemy), which can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=QQKHm_l-vcc

For another preview of Long Night’s Journey into Day, the previous singles – “Little Men” and “Indulge In Color” – can be heard now at: metalblade.com/redemption – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


– ltd. first edition Digipak-CD with 2 exclusive bonus tracks
– jewel-case CD
– 180g black vinyl
– navy-blue/red marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
– transparent light blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
– marine blue/green marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

The follow-up to 2016′s The Art Of Loss, which van Dyk counts amongst Redemption‘s very best, Long Night’s Journey Into Day is inarguably the sound of a band at the height of their powers. As followers of Redemption are also aware, it is the first full-length since the departure of vocalist Ray Alder, and features the debut of Evergrey vocalist Tom Englund. “We were unable to tour ‘The Art Of Loss‘ because Ray was not able to actively participate in Redemption any longer, so we decided it was time to part company shortly after its release. Ray is a dear friend, and I have nothing but respect and love for him and what we created together. But at some point, it just became untenable.” Of course, Alder’s shoes were not exactly going to be easy to fill, and it was essential that his successor be someone who would immediately command respect, as well as somebody who could exceed expectations when it came to performance. Moreover, it was integral that they had someone who could fully invest in the lyrical themes concerning the human condition, which have always been central to Redemption. So, the fact that from the beginning of his career Englund has penned lyrics about feelings of doubt, fear and despair with an unshakable emotional authenticity made him the perfect choice. “Because of the power of his voice and the emotion he brings, this isn’t going to be a shocking transition for fans. Tom’s also a very versatile vocalist, and being a songwriter, he has a tremendous melodic and compositional sensibility, and on top of that, we’ve known each other for many years, and there is a level of not just professional respect but personal friendship to it all.”

Guitarists Chris Poland (Megadeth, OHM) and Simone Mularoni (DGM) return as guest musicians. When it came to backing up the music with visuals, the band once again turned to a longtime collaborator, Travis Smith, whose humbling resumé includes records by bands such as Art Of Defiance, Opeth and Iced Earth.

Long Night’s Journey into Day track-listing
1. Eyes You Dare Not Meet in Dreams
2. Someone Else’s Problem
3. The Echo Chamber
4. Impermanent
5. Indulge in Color
6. Little Men
7. And Yet
8. The Last of Me
9. New Year’s Day

Allstar death metal band Siege Of Power reveals details for debut album, ‘Warning Blast’

– June 28th, 2018 –

Launches first single, “The Cold Room”

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Warning Blast, the debut album by multinational allstar death metallers Siege Of Power! For a preview of Warning Blast, head over to: metalblade.com/siegeofpower, where you can watch the video for the first single, “The Cold Room”, plus pre-order the album in the following formats:


–ltd. Digipak-CD w/2 bonus tracks
–180g black vinyl
–cool grey marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–slate blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–clear smoky white-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)

Siege Of Power comments: “‘The Cold Room’ is the first official video from Siege of Power. Just like our audio terror we prefer to keep it simple and straight forward. ‘The Cold Room’ is also the slowest track on our album alongside with the title track. This song might confuse people about the rest of the album which is totally fine by us since it shows the diversity of our debut. Doom, Death, Thrash and punk, it is all there! In the meantime, we hope you guys and girls enjoy this doomdozer called ‘The Cold Room’ and stay tuned for more.”

Siege Of Power is:
Chris Reifert – Vocals (Autopsy, Violation Wound, Abscess, Painted Doll)
Paul Baayens – Guitars (Asphyx, ex-Hail of Bullets, Thanatos)
Theo van Eekelen – Bass (ex-Hail of Bullets, ex-Houwitser, ex-Grand Supreme Blood Court)
Bob Bagchus – Drums (ex-Asphyx, Soulburn, ex-Grand Supreme Blood Court)

No bullshit compromises of any kind whatsoever. That’s what Siege Of Power is all about! Siege Of Power started in 2013 as a project without any expectations. Shortly after releasing a split album it was left for dead, buried and almost forgotten until the rotten corpse was exhumed in 2017. This resulted in a no-nonsense extreme metal album mixed with several doomdozers. Influences vary from Carnivore and SOD to Discharge and Amebix, done in their own style.

Warning Blast track-listing
1. Conquest for What?
2. For the Pain
3. Bulldozing Skulls
4. Born into Hate
5. Torture Lab
6. Uglification
7. Trapped and Blinded
8. Diatribe
9. Warning Blast
10. Mushroom Cloud Altar
11. Lost and Insane
12. Bleeding for the Cause
13. Escalation ’til Extermination
14. Privileged Prick
15. Short Fuse
16. Violence in the Air
17. It Will Never Happen
18. The Cold Room

Florida death metallers Monstrosity reveal details for first studio album in 11 years

– June 27th, 2018 –

Launch new single, “Cosmic Pandemia”

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release The Passage Of Existence, the new studio album by Florida death metal legends Monstrosity! For a preview of The Passage Of Existence, head over to: metalblade.com/monstrosity, where you can stream the first single “Cosmic Pandemia”, plus pre-order the album in the following formats:


–ltd. Digipak-CD w/2 bonus tracks
–180g black vinyl
–orange/red marbled vinyl (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–transp. grey-brown marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–dusk blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–terracotta-marbled vinyl (limited to 120 copies – ebay exclusive)
–deep violet blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 500 copies – US exclusive)

Monstrosity‘s Lee Harrison (drums) comments: “First off, I present to you the master piece of masterpieces in the Monstrosity universe. This album requires a certain justice though and I ask you, as the listener, to properly step up to the task. Don’t play this recording on a cheap portable radio or your tiny ear buds. This album was built to be played loud on a killer system. Do yourself that favor, at least for the first few times you play it. I know it’s so horribly cliché to say ‘Play it Loud’, but I can honestly say this album is made for that. Listen to it multiple times, too. These songs are going to ‘pop’ live, too. Can’t wait to bring these songs to the stage. I’m curious to see the opinions. The response by the fans to the teaser clip we posted was super positive, so I’ll be so glad when the single is released and the years of hard work finally come to fruition. Hope to see you guys on the road soon and blast it!”

Lee Harrison recorded his drum tracks at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with veteran metal producer Jason Suecof. A week was spent creating rock solid drum tracks. Guitar and bass tracks were handled at Ascension Sound in Tampa with the vocal tracks being recorded at Obituary‘s “Redneck Studios” in Gibsonton, Florida. The mix was handled by producer Mark Lewis (Megadeth, etc), and the resulting 2018 album, The Passage Of Existence, was born. 12 tracks of masterfully crafted death metal for the modern era from the standard bearers of extreme art. Monstrosity still stand taller than ever, still delivering their brand of state of the art sonic devastation!

The Passage Of Existence track-listing
1. Cosmic Pandemia
2. Kingdom Of Fire
3. Radiated
4. Solar Vacuum
5. The Proselygeist
6. Maelstrom
7. Eyes Upon The Abyss

9. The Hive
10. Eternal Void (ltd. Digi-CD bonus)

English NWOBHM legends Satan reveal details for new album, ‘Cruel Magic’

– June 26th, 2018 –

Release video for first single, “The Doomsday Clock”; announce USA tour

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Cruel Magic, the new album by English NWOBHM legends Satan! For a preview of Cruel Magic, head over to metalblade.com/satan, where you can watch the video for the first single, “The Doomsday Clock”, and pre-order the album in the following formats:


–ltd. Boxset (incl. Digipak-CD, excl. bonus-CD, excl. dead gold-marbled vinyl w/excl. bonus-LP, 75×75 cm flag, circular 12″ back patch, five A4 art prints, A4 photo card, numbered certificate)
–Digipak-CD (EU exclusive)
–CD
–180g black vinyl
–clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–red/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–water blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–steel grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – US exclusive)
–yellow/ochre-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)

Satan comments: “Not everyone believes in magic but you all better believe in ‘Cruel Magic‘. This album is going to change everything, and we are ready for it. Satan is calling you!”

Bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83′s seminal Court In the Act and ’87′s Suspended Sentence, Satan make it abundantly clear with their upcoming new album that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015′s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Tracking the album at First Avenue Studio, they further demonstrated their trust and rapport with past collaborators, recruiting engineer Dave Curle and Dario Mollo to handle the mix, letting them handle the technical side of things so the quintet could focus all of their energies on giving the best performances. Confident in the songs they had written and how they wanted them to sound made the process a very easy one, walking out of the studio with a record of which they are understandably proud, and will reign supreme in the speakers and headphones of metalheads the world over when it drops in September. “We truly feel we’ve got it 100% right this time, the balance between considered content and reckless performance. We always break loose on stage so why not on record?”

Cruel Magic track-listing:
1. Into The Mouth Of Eternity
2. Cruel Magic
3. The Doomsday Clock
4. Legions Hellbound
5. Ophidian
6. My Prophetic Soul
7. Death Knell For A King
8. Who Among Us
9. Ghosts Of Monongah
10. Mortality

In support of Cruel Magic, Satan will head out on the road this October for a USA tour, which includes an appearance at the Frost and Fire IV festival in Ventura, CA. See below for all dates!


Satan tour dates

Members of Metallica, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold and More Pay Tribute To Late Pantera / HELLYEAH Drummer Vinnie Paul

The family of Vinnie Paul have confirmed that he passed away in his sleep at his home in Las Vegas, NV. A medical examiner will set out to determine his cause of death after which, his body will be transferred back to Texas to be buried alongside his mother and his brother, the late Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott.

Members of Metallica, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold etc. pay tribute to Late Pantera and HELLYEAH Drummer Vinnie Paul. Below’s what they have to say:

Thank you for all the good times, Vinnie…your incredible hospitality and warm vibe was infectious and inspiring. Here’s to another shot of Crown Royal and a next level game of air hockey down the road! RIP, brother. Much love. ?? pic.twitter.com/ehNXoO88jY

— Lars Ulrich (@larsulrich) June 23, 2018

Very sad news this evening. This man always treated me & the guys in my band like family, from the very first time we ever met him with his brother at a Damageplan gig in Texas– whether backstage at a show, on his crazy tour bus, at his club, at his house, he was always a gracious host to us. He just wanted people around him to be happy. I didn’t see Vinnie much the last time we played a gig together because I heard he was in a very foul mood– this was highly unusual for him. Why was he in a foul mood? Because we were playing a big festival in Chicago, he had bought a TON OF FOOD to grill in the parking lot for everyone (as usual), & the fire marshall came and shut him down before he could start the bar-b-que. That’s the type of dude he was– he just wanted to make sure people were having a good time, & he took steps to make that happen. He also did me a very solid favor when I was in some very serious legal trouble a while back by writing a detailed letter to a judge explaining what had happened to his brother & the need for good stage security– that wasn’t an easy thing for him to do, but he did it anyway because he was a true friend and knew I needed some help– I’ll never forget that, & I made sure he knew I appreciated it. He also never minded when I got in his face with my camera– I took this photo with a 50mm fixed lens at a festival we were playing with Hellyeah in Iowa in 2016– that means I was basically inside his drum kit. When he saw me poking my head in there, he just turned, flashed me this grin, & kept on rocking. I love this photo– Big Vin smiling and doing what he did best. Rest In Peace, Vinnie Paul. You’ll be missed. BIG LOVE.

The family of Vinnie Paul have confirmed that he passed away in his sleep at his home in Las Vegas, NV. A medical examiner will set out to determine his cause of death after which, his body will be transferred back to Texas to be buried alongside his mother and his brother, the late Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott.

Members of Metallica, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold etc. pay tribute to Late Pantera and HELLYEAH Drummer Vinnie Paul. Below’s what they have to say:

Thank you for all the good times, Vinnie…your incredible hospitality and warm vibe was infectious and inspiring. Here’s to another shot of Crown Royal and a next level game of air hockey down the road! RIP, brother. Much love. ?? pic.twitter.com/ehNXoO88jY

Very sad news this evening. This man always treated me & the guys in my band like family, from the very first time we ever met him with his brother at a Damageplan gig in Texas– whether backstage at a show, on his crazy tour bus, at his club, at his house, he was always a gracious host to us. He just wanted people around him to be happy. I didn’t see Vinnie much the last time we played a gig together because I heard he was in a very foul mood– this was highly unusual for him. Why was he in a foul mood? Because we were playing a big festival in Chicago, he had bought a TON OF FOOD to grill in the parking lot for everyone (as usual), & the fire marshall came and shut him down before he could start the bar-b-que. That’s the type of dude he was– he just wanted to make sure people were having a good time, & he took steps to make that happen. He also did me a very solid favor when I was in some very serious legal trouble a while back by writing a detailed letter to a judge explaining what had happened to his brother & the need for good stage security– that wasn’t an easy thing for him to do, but he did it anyway because he was a true friend and knew I needed some help– I’ll never forget that, & I made sure he knew I appreciated it. He also never minded when I got in his face with my camera– I took this photo with a 50mm fixed lens at a festival we were playing with Hellyeah in Iowa in 2016– that means I was basically inside his drum kit. When he saw me poking my head in there, he just turned, flashed me this grin, & kept on rocking. I love this photo– Big Vin smiling and doing what he did best. Rest In Peace, Vinnie Paul. You’ll be missed. BIG LOVE.

Allstar Death Metal band Siege Of Power releases limited 7″ prior to debut album!

– June 21st, 2018 –

Video teaser available!

No bullshit compromises of any kind whatsoever. That’s what SIEGE OF POWER is all about! SIEGE OF POWER started in 2013 as a project without any expectations. Shortly after releasing a split album it was left for dead, buried and almost forgotten until the rotten corpse was exhumed in 2017. This resulted in a no-nonsense extreme metal album mixed with several doomdozers. Influences vary from Carnivore and SOD to Discharge and Amebix, done in their own style.

SIEGE OF POWER is:
Chris Reifert – Vocals (Autopsy, Violation Wound, Abscess, Painted Doll)
Paul Baayens – Guitars (Asphyx, ex-Hail of Bullets, Thanatos)
Theo van Eekelen – Bass (ex-Hail of Bullets, ex-Houwitser, ex-Grand Supreme Blood Court)
Bob Bagchus – Drums (ex-Asphyx, Soulburn, ex-Grand Supreme Blood Court)

SIEGE OF POWER will release a limited 7″, entitled ‘The Cold Room‘, on August 10th via Metal Blade Records. Two of the three songs are non-albums songs. The 7″ is strictly limited to 500 copies. 300 copies in black and 200 colored copies. The 200 colored copies will be sold exclusively via the official merch booth at the Party.San Open Air (party-san.de)!

Check out a video teaser for ‘The Cold Room’ at: youtube.com

Pre-order copies at our ebay-store or at EMP!

Tracklist:
Side A:
The Cold Room
Side B:
Servant Of Nothing
Mushroom Cloud Altar

The SIEGE OF POWER debut album ‘Warning Blast‘ will drop in September and more information about it will be revealed shortly.

Redemption launches “Indulge In Color” instrumental band play-through

– June 19th, 2018 –

Featuring Simone Mularoni of DGM

On July 27th, Redemption will release their seventh full-length album, Long Night’s Journey into Day – the first to be produced with Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Doro, etc.). For a preview of Long Night’s Journey into Day, the band has launched an instrumental play-through for the track “Indulge In Color” (featuring Simone Mularoni of DGM), which can be viewed now at: youtube.com/watch?v=5-AlPPfHBNc

“We have a number of elements to our sound, from more aggressive riff-driven material, to more melodic metal with technical elements, to more progressive material,” says van Dyk. “It’s hard to capture our sound with just one song. So we’re particularly excited to release this longer track that showcases our more progressive elements and Tom’s amazing singing in that context. I know people are eager to hear how he sounds on this type of track and I think his performance here is going to blow people away.”

For another preview of Long Night’s Journey into Day, the previous single “Little Men” can be heard now at: metalblade.com/redemption – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


– ltd. first edition Digipak-CD with 2 exclusive bonus tracks
– jewel-case CD
– 180g black vinyl
– navy-blue/red marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
– transparent light blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
– marine blue/green marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

The follow-up to 2016′s The Art Of Loss, which van Dyk counts amongst Redemption‘s very best, Long Night’s Journey Into Day is inarguably the sound of a band at the height of their powers. As followers of Redemption are also aware, it is the first full-length since the departure of vocalist Ray Alder, and features the debut of Evergrey vocalist Tom Englund. “We were unable to tour ‘The Art Of Loss‘ because Ray was not able to actively participate in Redemption any longer, so we decided it was time to part company shortly after its release. Ray is a dear friend, and I have nothing but respect and love for him and what we created together. But at some point, it just became untenable.” Of course, Alder’s shoes were not exactly going to be easy to fill, and it was essential that his successor be someone who would immediately command respect, as well as somebody who could exceed expectations when it came to performance. Moreover, it was integral that they had someone who could fully invest in the lyrical themes concerning the human condition, which have always been central to Redemption. So, the fact that from the beginning of his career Englund has penned lyrics about feelings of doubt, fear and despair with an unshakable emotional authenticity made him the perfect choice. “Because of the power of his voice and the emotion he brings, this isn’t going to be a shocking transition for fans. Tom’s also a very versatile vocalist, and being a songwriter, he has a tremendous melodic and compositional sensibility, and on top of that, we’ve known each other for many years, and there is a level of not just professional respect but personal friendship to it all.”

Guitarists Chris Poland (Megadeth, OHM) and Simone Mularoni (DGM) return as guest musicians. When it came to backing up the music with visuals, the band once again turned to a longtime collaborator, Travis Smith, whose humbling resumé includes records by bands such as Art Of Defiance, Opeth and Iced Earth.

Long Night’s Journey into Day track-listing
1. Eyes You Dare Not Meet in Dreams
2. Someone Else’s Problem
3. The Echo Chamber
4. Impermanent
5. Indulge in Color
6. Little Men
7. And Yet
8. The Last of Me
9. New Year’s Day
10. Long Night’s Journey into Day
