Redemption launches cover song of U2′s “New Year’s Day”

– August 2nd, 2018 –

Last week (July 27th), Redemption released their seventh full-length, Long Night’s Journey into Day – the first to be produced with Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Doro, etc.). Today, the band has released a new track from the album: “New Year’s Day”, a cover version of U2‘s classic song – which can be heard at: youtube.com/watch?v=071U2vTItA8

For more previews of Long Night’s Journey into Day, and to purchase the record in various formats, please visit: metalblade.com/redemption

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.

As previously announced, Redemption will appear at ProgPower USA 2018, along with a special show at the Whisky A Go Go, with more USA dates coming soon. See below for all dates!

Redemption live:
Sept. 7 – Atlanta, GA – Center Stage (ProgPower USA)
Sept. 19 – Los Angeles, CA – Whisky A Go Go

Redemption line-up:
Tom Englund – vocals
Nick van Dyk – guitars
Sean Andrews – bass

Lizzy Borden storms Billboard charts with first album in 11 years, ‘My Midnight Things’

– June 26th, 2018 –

It turns out that the time away from the music scene has not dulled the appetites of hard rock fans for Lizzy Borden, as his new album, My Midnight Things, has already left a deep impression on five different Billboard charts. These placings include #11 on Top New Artist Albums, #17 on Current Hard Music Albums, #43 on Top New Artist Albums Consumption, #46 on Independent Current Albums, and #148 on Top 200 Current Albums. Additionally, the album also made the Canadian charts – hitting #84 on Top Hard Music Charts.

“We live in a streaming world now, where everyone gets their music for free,” explains Lizzy. “But I want to personally thank all the great Lizzy Borden fans out there who shopped online or drove down to your local mom and pop music store and actually paid for my new album. You guys got Lizzy Borden back on the charts! And the fact that you’ve all embraced ‘My Midnight Things‘ in such an amazing way is the icing on the cake. Thanks again, and I will see you all soon on the ‘My Midnight Things‘ tour!”

Released on June 15th via Metal Blade Records, My Midnight Things can be purchased and previewed at: metalblade.com/lizzyborden

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

Machine Head Call Out Reviewer After Devastating Review Of Upcoming New Album “Catharsis”

Decibel magazine has given Machine Head’s new effort “Catharsis” a devastating review. Reviewer Jeff Treppel even gave the release a shrug emoji (¯_(ツ)_/¯), rather than assigning it a numeric rating. Looks like Machine Head didn’t exactly appreciate the judgement, taking to Instagram to vent on it and the reviewer in question.

“DECIBEL MAGAZINE SLAMS “CATHARSIS”!
The former-Decibel cover stars new album gets called “juvenile”, “stupid”, “endlessly pummeling” and a “Super Collider-level-miss”.

Oh, and hey… FUCK YOU Jeff Treppel!!

Read the entire review below:

——————

MACHINE HEAD – CATHARSIS

EVERYTHING OLD IS NÜ AGAIN

Let’s just tear off this Band-Aid:

The new Machine Head is a 74-minute rap metal album with a song that sounds like the Dropkick Murphys in the middle. Maybe Robb Flynn really misses the late 90’s (although, let’s be honest who doesn’t these days)? Maybe, after a decade of ridiculously great progressive groove metal records, Flynn decided to blow off some steam by going back to “The Bleeding Red’s” knuckle-dragging simplicity?

The frustrating thing about Catharsis is that Machine Head are great even when they’re making bad music. The Soulfly tribal breakdowns on “Volatile,” the drop tuning on “Beyond The Pale,” the whiteboy hip-hop of “Triple Beam” (nothing more “street” than gymnastics metaphors), the anti-gentrification screed “California Bleeding” –they’re effective in the same primal way that the best Rage Against The Machine and Korn hits were back in the day. None of it feels half-assed; these are clearly well-crafted songs.

It’s all just so stupid.

As intermittently satisfying as the nu-metal approach may be, Flynn and his bandmates have proven themselves more than capable of expressing their rage articulately. This feels juvenile from dudes pushing 50. There are certainly some interesting parts mixed in; unfortunately, with 15 songs, any nuances get lost in the endless pummeling.

Frankly, I’m baffled. This is a “Super-Collider“-level miss from a band that seemed to have ditched this phase long ago.

“Catharsis” drops Jan. 26th

Ein Beitrag geteilt von Machine Head (@machine_head) am

In an op-ed from Neill Jameson (Krieg), Decibel – indirectly – responds to the matter:

“Recently a popular metal band publicly made a filled-baby’s-diaper kind of complaint that Decibel had given them a bad review. If you’ve spent your whole career wondering what the quickest way to make people think you’re an asshole, then, eureka – welcome to the internet! I figured this shit out in the ’90s, but I understand if you might have missed it since those really cool cornrows probably took up a lot of your free time.

This isn’t just to dogpile on a man obviously having a difficult time with old age, though. This time-wasting “think piece” is here to consider the concept of reviews and the complicated relationship between reviewers, reviewees (not a word, I guess) and, for lack of a better word, etiquette.”

The Black Dahlia Murder lands on international charts with new album, ‘Nightbringers’

– October 17th, 2017 –

The Black Dahlia Murder recently released their new album, Nightbringers, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the worldwide charts! See below for all positions:

#8 Billboard Top Current Albums (USA)
#9 Billboard Top Albums (USA)
#2 Internet Albums (USA)
#3 Current Hard Music Albums (USA)
#3 LP Vinyl Albums (USA)
#3 Independent Current Albums (USA)
#4 Current Rock Albums (USA)
#6 Independent Current Albums Consumption (USA)
#15 Current Digital Albums (USA)
#16 Digital Albums (USA)

#2 Hard Music Charts (Canada)
#12 Top Album Charts (Canada)
#17 Top Digital Charts (Canada)
#22 Rock/Metal Albums (UK)
#47 (Germany)
#97 (Switzerland)

To preview and purchase the album, please visit: metalblade.com/tbdm – where an exclusive interview with front-man Trevor Strnad (written by Kim Kelly) can also be viewed. Read on for some reviews of the critically acclaimed Nightbringers:

“‘Nightbringers‘ is the album of the year.”MetalSucks.net

“‘Nightbringers‘ makes for one of the band’s best records… if not their best.”MetalInjection.net

“…’Nightbringers‘ is without a doubt the band’s best release since their 2007 breakthrough.”NoCleanSinging.com

“While the Black Dahlia Murder have always been an impressive band, ‘Nightbringers’ finds them on top of their game and performing better than ever before.”Exclaim.ca

Rather than meticulously plan things out or stick rigidly to any kind of template, when it comes to writing, The Black Dahlia Murder prefer to let things happen organically. In the hands of guitarist Brian Eschbach – who co-founded the band with front-man Trevor Strnad in 2001 – and new recruit Brandon Ellis (Arsis, ex-Cannabis Corpse), Nightbringers is rich with dynamic riffs that are at once fresh and classic The Black Dahlia Murder, resulting in a collection that shifts through many moods and effortlessly incorporates various elements of extreme metal. While Strnad explores a variety of themes and ideas with his lyrics, they are united by the album’s title, which embraces a tenet that has been central to The Black Dahlia Murder‘s output since the very beginning. “Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me,” Strnad explains. “We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld – such as marriage and monogamy – came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It’s ‘being-the-villain music’, because we’re the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it’s for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and ‘Kings Of The Nightworld’ are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle.”
