Anthrax Films Show For New DVD Release

The thrash pioneers from Anthrax, armed with an initial six dynamic SRO dates on the “Among The Kings” UK/European headline tour, will chronicle the frenzy with a live DVD expected to be released later this year via Megaforce.

Anthrax’s show was filmed last night at Glasgow’s historic venue Barrowland. Seventeen cameras, including five Go-Pros and a full-size camera crane, captured more than two hours of Anthrax favorites that were voted onto the evening’s set list by fans and included “Madhouse,” “Be All, End All,” “Breathing Lightning,” and “A.I.R.,” followed by Anthrax’s classic 1987 album “Among The Living” performed start to finish.

In addition to the live footage, the DVD will include “fly-on-the-wall” interviews and other B-roll shot on the band’s tour bus, backstage, in hotels and elsewhere. The DVD is being produced and directed by Paul Green of the Manchester, UK-based Paul Green Productions who has filmed concerts for Opeth, The Damned, Gary Numan, The Levellers, and many others.

Last year’s celebration of Anthrax’s 35th anniversary saw the band getting some of the best live reviews of its career, but the reception from British fans on this tour has been far more than anyone anticipated.

“I don’t know why it took us so long to come back to the UK and headline our own tour,” said Anthrax’s Joey Belladonna, “but I’m sure glad we did. These shows have been some of the best we’ve ever done, and that’s really due to the interaction with the fans, they’ve just been crazy. And that’s what we wanted to capture for this DVD.”

“Underground Inc. The Unsung Story of Alternative Rock” Trailer Posted

It was the early 90’s – seemingly out of nowhere, a little grunge band called Nirvana began outselling massive commercial artists like Michael Jackson. This immediately caught the attention of the giant record companies. These small underground bands branded as alternative or post-punk went from being inconsequential to being potential behemoths in record sales – and the hunt began.

Hungrily sweeping for the next Nirvana, a buying frenzy ensued as small indie labels were bought out by the commercial labels on a never before seen scale. A&R execs would see random alt-rock bands perform in a bar and appear after their set offering unheard of financial offers and immediate global exposure. It seemed these band members were set for life – so what happened?

Verity is revealed in “Underground Inc: The Unsung Story of Alternative Rock,” an upcoming documentary destined to be the ultimate look at the alternative punk and metal scene in the 90’s, and a must see for serious music lovers. Told by the artists who pioneered a sonic subculture, this feature-length documentary tells the real story of the 90’s – exposing viewers to an amazing catalog of the era’s rarities and buried treasures, while re-living the struggles, triumphs and tragedies, as well as the debauchery.

“Underground Inc.” features interviews with members of White Zombie, Queens Of The Stone Age, Primus, Bad Religion, Stone Sour, Clutch, Red Fang, Failure, Ministry, Quicksand, Helmet, Steve Albini, Sepultura and dozens more.

Wintersun Announces New Album That Won’t Be “Time II”

Maybe Wintersun wasn’t trolling as much as we thought, as the band today announces a new album is coming… except it’s not “Time II” but rather something completely different. The group issued this message online:

“It’s 2017 folks and it’s going to be a great year! Time for some big Wintersun news? Yes it is!
When we said that ‘IT IS DONE,’ we did not mean ‘Time II,’ but we meant a NEW ALBUM for sure! ‘Time II’ won´t be the next Wintersun album, because of reasons you already know from past updates and interviews.

“So what is IT? IT is a NEW ALBUM and it is 100% done! And no, that’s not the name of the album. This album will be something new and different, but equally great or perhaps even better in some ways. Over 53 minutes of solid Wintersun material (with no intro tracks) and with a killer concept!

“This album will be the 3rd full-length Wintersun album. We will release the name of it soon and other details like track list etc. We’re gonna start putting the pieces of the puzzle together for you guys how it’s going to be released and what will happen… It will be a whole new experience to enjoy a Wintersun album! It will all make sense to you very soon!

“And this album is not the only thing we’ve done, not by a long shot! In fact your minds will be blown soon! That is a guarantee. So click the notifications ON in our Wintersun Facebook Page, if you don’t want to miss out on the new Wintersun album! (Because of Facebook algorithm reach limit). THANKS GUYS!”

Eluveitie Begins Revealing New Band Members

A few names have come out early however, and now the band has confirmed that Alain Ackermann is officially taking over drum duties. A fan question and answer session can be seen at his Facebook profile.

Rafael Salzmann and Jonas Wolf have also been confirmed as Eluveitie’s guitarists. Stay tuned for more band member confirmations coming soon.

Kaira Posts 2016 Documentary Clip

Russian pagan folk metal band Kaira released a documentary covering the band’s exploits during 2016. The 47 minute clip features footage of the group onstage as well as some backstage antics and making-of segments.

Sliptrick Records comments: “Although the interviews are in Russian, the majority of the piece concentrates on the visual side of things and is well worth watching to get a good look at Kaira’s unique approach and vision. Much of the music in the documentary is taken from the album ‘Roots Of Veles’ released worldwide on Sliptrick Records late last year.”
