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.

Lizzy Borden launches new track, “The Scar Across My Heart”, from first album in 11 years

– June 11th, 2018 –

Lizzy Borden fans who simply cannot wait any longer to hear a sample of the new studio effort from one of theatrical metal’s top frontmen, Lizzy Borden, are in luck – “The Scar Across My Heart” (from the forthcoming full-length, My Midnight Things) can be heard via this link: youtube.com/watch?v=fCpHuEmPNaM

Lizzy Borden comments: “With ‘The Scar Across My Heart,’ I wanted to explore those kinds of relationships that tattoo your soul. You’re forever linked to this person, even though it can never be for one reason or another. ‘We bury all our yesterdays and try and drink these scars away’ – I’m talking about a no-hope situation, a never-meant-to-be situation, but I’m still singing ‘We’re gonna make it now.’ I’m always looking for that human reaction no matter how delusional or unrealistic.”

June 15th will see the release of My Midnight Things via Metal Blade Records, which can be pre-ordered at metalblade.com/lizzyborden in the following formats:


–limited 1st edition Digipak-CD (includes bonus tracks)
–jewelcase-CD
–180g black vinyl
–clear pacific blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–clear burgundy marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–olive/black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–opaque cool gray marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

To celebrate My Midnight Things‘ release, Lizzy Borden will have an album release party on Thursday, June 14th from 7-10PM at the Hard Rock Live, Las Vegas (3771 South Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109). Hosted by Jim Florentine (along with Lizzy Borden in attendance!), there will be giveaways, drink specials, signed CDs/LPs available for purchase, and more at this event, which is open to the public. Please RSVP to mymidnightparty@gmail.com to confirm your attendance!

Having signed a new contract with Metal Blade on the strength of three demo tracks, Borden opted to produce My Midnight Things himself, with Joey Scott as co-producer, who also handled all the drumming duties. “I knew what I was going for and had doubts that I could find a producer who would understand that,” Borden explains. “My approach is very different than what is happening in today’s current sound.”

The album was also mixed by Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Adele, U2) and mastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty), and is already receiving rave reviews, from Alt Revolt, Pure Grain Audio, and Royal Flush:

Borden paints a ten-song art gallery show and lets the listener decide what he or she sees on the canvas.”Alternative Revolt Magazine

“Catchy riffs and melodies that are sure to be trapped inside your head, bouncing around your skull for days to come.”PureGrainAudio

“The resulting creation yielded what is arguably the strongest vocal performance of Borden‘s career.”Royalflushmagazine.com

And now, fans can get a taste of things to come, with “The Scar Across My Heart”.
