Watch Classic Misfits Lineup Perform First Show Since 1983 With Ex-Slayer Drummer Dave Lombardo At Denver Riot Fest

Below you can watch the classic Misfits lineup of singer Glenn Danzig (61), bassist Jerry Only (57) and guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (51) perform the track “Bullet”, during their first show together since 1983 at the “Denver Riot Fest” past Sunday, September 4th, 2016. They were joined by ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Joan Jett guitarist Acey Slade.

Said Danzig at one point during the show addressing the crowd: “About 40 years ago, Jerry and I got onstage in New York and we shocked the whole fucking punk scene who didn’t know what the fuck to make of us. We didn’t look like anybody. We didn’t sound like anybody. We were angry, pissed-off and we dressed all in fucking black and we were always getting into fights and shitloads of fucking trouble every night. That’s pretty much what punk was back then, getting fucked up and fucking people up. At least in New York City, it was.”

Misfits Setlist, Denver Riot Fest:

Death Comes Ripping
20 Eyes
I Turned Into a Martian
Where Eagles Dare
Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?

Artillery launches video for second single, “Live by the Scythe”, online

– March 7th, 2016 –

Danish power-thrash metallers Artillery are set to unleash their new album, Penalty By Perception, on March 25th worldwide via Metal Blade Records. In anticipation of this release, the band has now launched a video for the second single, “Live By The Scythe“! To watch the clip – and to pre-order the record in various formats – please visit: metalblade.com/artillery

Artillery comments: “It was great fun to record the video for ‘Live by the Scythe’ on Fyn in Denmark. The filming was done in an old castle – Hindsgavl castle – in the forest, and in a school near Hesselager.The story behind the video is about death, fate, the meaning and acceptance of life and death. The video was done by M&M Production who also did the video for ‘Legions’.”

For another preview of Penalty By Perception, be sure to check out the first single, “In Defiance Of Conformity“, here: metalblade.com/artillery

Written over the course of the last two years, Artillery‘s seventh full-length draws from their classic albums like Fear of Tomorrow (1985) and By Inheritance (1990), as well as When Death Comes (2009) and Legions (2013). Having recorded at Medley Studios and bringing Soren Andersen on board as the producer, Artillery achieved the sound that they were aiming for: “We worked really hard together to get this amazing sound. I feel the band have come up with some great songs,” asserts guitarist Michael Stutzer. “The best musical performance in the history of Artillery. Can’t wait to hear the fans’ reactions!”

A familiar, yet modern thrash attack, Penalty By Perception delivers the band’s signature riffing, with powerful drumming and melodic singing – and promises to be a new fan favorite in the Danish quintet’s storied career! See below for the track-listing.

Debut Album “The Enemy Within” Detailed By Mindwars

Mindwars released further details for the upcoming debut release “The Enemy Within.” The album is now set to drop on October 27th via Punishment 18 Records. The album’s track listing can be found below.

Mindwars was created in the Fall of 2013 by the desire of two individuals who wanted to bring the sound of metal from the 1980’s to the current power of 2014. Mike Alvord, formerly of Holy Terror, and Roby Vitari, formerly of Jester Beast, met by chance in 1989 when Holy Terror was touring Europe in support of the classic 1988 release “Mind Wars.” Roby, originally from Southern Italy in the region of Calabria, discovered that he had similar roots as Mike, being that his grandparents are from the same region. Approximately 25 years later, Mike and Roby reconnected through the internet and discussed creating something musically that they both believe has been lost. The result is Mindwars, an 80s rebirth of speed/thrash metal with influences ranging from Black Sabbath to NWOBHM to Soundgarden.

The track listing for “The Enemy Within”

1. Upside Down
2. Death Comes Twice
3. Final Battle
4. Masters Of War
5. Chaos
6. Crash
7. Speed Kills
8. Retrobution
9. Lost
10. Time In The Machine
11. Walking Alone
