“Friends! We are very excited to give you the first single, entitled ‘Darkest Day,’ off our coming album, ‘The Rabbit Hole.’

“As the titles reveal, this album is our take and out dark twist on a famous story by Lewis Carroll. Don’t worry, the story will unfold further as we go along and more songs and stories will see the light of day. Or not, depending on how you look at it. Stay vigilant!

“For now, we invite you to join us on a journey into the stranger side of things, down in the rabbit hole. Get ready. More music will follow suit and the album will be released just as the summer starts gasping for breath.”

Monte Pittman launches “Obliterated” video (feat. Richard Christy & Billy Sheehan)

– April 20th, 2017 –

Having released his new album, Inverted Grasp of Balance, last year via Metal Blade Records, Monte Pittman is now launching a performance video for the album track “Obliterated”, featuring drummer Richard Christy and bassist Billy Sheehan (both of whom played on the album). To watch “Obliterated” (with footage of Billy Sheehan from the album’s recording sessions), please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=tBOYhLCputg

There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles. With his fourth full-length, Inverted Grasp of Balance, he has once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution, undoubtedly expanding his devout – and ravenous – fan base. The record also features powerhouse drummer Richard Christy of Charred Walls Of The Damned/Iced Earth/Death fame and virtuoso bassist Billy Sheehan, famous for his work with a plethora of talented artists – including David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and, more recently, Winery Dogs. The skill of all concerned explodes from the speakers!

Pure Steel Records Signs Blazing Rust

Russian old school metal band Blazing Rust has signed a worldwide deal with Pure Steel Records. The band will release the debut album “Armed To Exist” on July 28th. Details of the album are expected soon.

Blazing Rust was formed in November 2014 and consists of former and current members of well-known metal acts Pyre, Drama, Ulvdalir, Internal Damage, Grenouer. Having a unique tinge and vision without limiting themselves to the rigid frameworks, Blazing Rust pays homage to real heavy metal gods such as Dio, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath and Diamond Head.

Guitarist Roman Dovzhenko commented: “We are so excited about the fact that this album is coming out finally! An extensive work on all the production of our first full-length was carried out perfectly. We knew what we want and what we need and i believe we’ve achieved that! I’m happy with the results and I’m sure that nobody of you metal brothers-in-arms will be disappointed!”

Vocalist Igor Arbuzov added: “Making ‘Armed to Exist’ album had been a huge fun for me as I received a big amount of creative freedom and support from the band. We realized very soon how close we are musically and mentally. In my opinion our album is not just an imitation of the most popular 80s music genre. It’s a great collection of tracks that won’t leave any heavy metal fan indifferent. They can be fast and mid-tempo, rough, agressive and melodic at the same time, – everything you expect from classic metal. ‘Armed to Exist’ is a statement from the younger generation of musicians that says: “We’re ready to carry the flag of Heavy Metal!”!”

Ninjaspy Streaming Full New Album “Spüken”

Vancouver’s Ninjaspy released lastest album “Spüken” last week, which was again produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mudvayne, Gallows) and Ben Kaplan (Biffy Clyro, Atreyu, Haste the Day).

In celebration of its relesae, a full stream premiere of the album has come online and can be heard below. Vocalist / guitarist Joel Parent comments:

“‘Spüken’ is the musical equivalent of a magician removing his own entrails. The guts just keep coming, like handkerchiefs from a sleeve, and its painful, colourful and cathartic all at once, in the same way that vomiting after hours of nausea is such a relief. The musical ideas that came together in this project span many years and come from many influences. Hearing them all together is a trip.

“There were a lot of hard times in the years while this record was being written and most, if not all of these songs are tied together by the search for something greater than oneself. Empowerment by going through ones pain, all this is woven into an album that is another spastic stylistic roller coaster not unlike our previous albums, but with smoother blending.

“From song to song there is a lot of variance, but within songs we have managed to take contrasting genres and combine them in more nuanced ways, with less hard cuts. This album is colourful, and the palette is dark.”

Don Jamieson launches new track, “Weed, Cigs, Election 2016″, online

– April 17th, 2017 –

On Friday (April 21st), former “That Metal Show” host and comedian Don Jamieson will release his new comedy album, Communication Breakdown, via Metal Blade Records. Recorded at The Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Communication Breakdown‘s title and cover come from Don‘s Rutgers University senior yearbook photo. Don explains: “My young nieces and nephews found the photo at my mom’s house and starting texting me how funny it was, and when I saw it again after so many years, I agreed! I majored in communication, so it was just a matter of adding the ‘Breakdown’ to it, which is obviously something you never want to happen in comedy.” For a preview of Communication Breakdown, the track “Weed, Cigs, Election 2016″ can be heard at: metalblade.com/donjamieson – where the album can also be pre-ordered, and the previously released track, “Kiefer”, can be streamed.

Communication Breakdown track-listing:
01. Dave Mustaine Riffs, Intervention, Baby in the Drain
02. Sober, Finger-Banging, Drunk Logic
03. Weed, Cigs, Election 2016
04. Kiefer
05. Myrtle Beach
06. Free Clinic, Raccoons
07. Rockers Aren’t P.C.
08. Where Have All the Rock Stars Gone?
09. Rocking Women, Viking Metal, Big Four
10. Vagina No-No’s, Van Fucker, Doggie Style
11. Dating at 50, Threesome (Almost)
12. Brad & Angelina, Great Head, Mr. Brownstone
13. Johnny Depp

Named one of the top 10 metalhead comedians by Revolver Magazine, Don has captured some of his most irreverent work to-date on his third album, Communication Breakdown. Don explains: “This album has tons of jokes but really revolves around 4 or 5 longer stories, which is something I’ve never really done before. I usually just like shot gunning jokes like beers at a frat party, but this time around I tried something a little different. It took a while to develop them for the stage but am really happy with the way they turned out, particularly the track ‘Kiefer’, which is a true story about a crazy night with the ’24′ actor.
Other than that, there’s a little bit of something for everyone on this disc, and I hope people who buy or steal it enjoy it as much as I do.”

God Dethroned releases single and video for title track of new album, ‘The World Ablaze’

– April 14th, 2017 –

On May 5th, Dutch death metallers God Dethroned will release their new album, The World Ablaze, worldwide via Metal Blade Records! To hear the second single and title track of the record, a new video for “The World Ablaze” can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vBogAvuq3Y

Henri Sattler (vocals/guitars) comments: “This song is a mix between epic melodies and fast but catchy riffs – and a song where Mike Ferguson shows off his skills as a lead guitar player. The lyrics deal with the war then, but can also be projected on the current situation in the world.”

To hear the first single, “On the Wrong Side of the Wire”, please visit: metalblade.com/goddethroned – where The World Ablaze can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–CD/DVD Digipak
–Jewelcase CD
–180g black vinyl
–pale violet vinyl (limited to 400 copies – EU exclusive)
–gray-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–clear-pastel rose vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EMP exclusive)
–deep violet-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – USA exclusive)
–clear/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 100 copies – Hells Headbangers exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

God Dethroned comments: “‘The World Ablaze‘ is our final album in the WWI trilogy. We aimed to create an album that is very dynamic and diverse. It contains typical GD riffing with loads of melodies and catchy hooks. The songs are perfect for our live shows as they contain many mid-tempo parts combined with faster and more brutal parts. Diversity to the max! Dan Swano mixed the album in his typical fashion but without robbing the band of its own identity. Mastering was handled at the Wisseloord Studios where they also mastered albums for bands like Rammstein, among many others, and they put the icing on the cake. The album sounds crystal clear and heavy as fuck at the same time. We are very proud to present this album during our upcoming Serpent Fest album release shows early May!”

The World Ablaze track-listing:
1. A Call to Arms
2. Annihilation Crusade
3. The World Ablaze
4. On the Wrong Side of the Wire
