God Dethroned “Under the Golden Wings of Death” – new Throwback Thursday video of the week!

– May 25th, 2017 –

In celebration of Metal Blade Records‘ 35th anniversary, a recently digitized video from the archives will be launched every Thursday on the label’s official YouTube channel. These videos have never been officially uploaded by the label, and some are not currently available anywhere else online. Previous Throwback Thursday videos include classic cuts from Lizzy Borden, Candlemass, Nevada Beach, Skrew, and more. Watch the latest video and more at the official YouTube playlist.

This week’s installment is God Dethroned “Under the Golden Wings of Death” from their Bloody Blasphemy album. The band recently returned with The World Ablaze earlier this month, so it’s only fitting that this Throwback Thursday celebrates a cut from their third full-length album, released all the way back in 1999!

5. I Detest
6. Death Is The Destiny

Helsott Releases “Astralive” Video

On the release date of new EP, “The Healer,” there’s lots of news this week from the Helsott tribe. First comes a premiere of the band’s new promo video clip, “Astralive,” directed by Sicocis guitarist Rafael Ortega and available below.

“Filming ‘Astralive’ was a very enjoyable experience,” explains vocalist Eric Dow. “Raf was great to work with and Coop and I had fun scouting for a location in Arrowhead. We want to thank Mike Grieg for letting us set up camp.”

“I love how cold the video came out,” adds drummer Cooper Dustman. “It was actually blistering hot that day, we all got sunburns! Finding this remote spot in the mountains was adventurous considering the gps can only show so much. We scouted and shot this within a few days, and we’re proud of the final product.”

Second, Helsott is pleased to announce some upcoming tour dates, including the band’s first trip to Europe. The group will be supporting I Am Morbid (the new band from Morbid Angel’s David Vincent and Tim Yeung playing tracks from the first 4 classic Morbid Angel albums) and death metal legends Necrophagia.

“We have been working so hard to fulfill our goals,” states Eric Dow. “Taking our brand of Pagan Death Metal overseas has always been an ultimate goal for this band and now that we have the opportunity we will take full advantage of it. Europe… Helsott is finally coming!

The run is immediately followed by joining the west coast dates of the just announced Tengger Cavalry / Felix Martin tour.

“We are excited to be joining our label mates, Tengger Cavalry, and the amazing Felix Martin on a west coast leg of their North American Raid,” explains Eric. “This is a unique line-up and fans are in for a treat!”

Don Jamieson Releasing New Comedy Album “Communication Breakdown”

On 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, the album’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.”

He goes on to say, “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.”

1. Dave Mustaine Riffs, Intervention, Baby in the Drain
2. Sober, Finger-Banging, Drunk Logic
3. Weed, Cigs, Election 2016
