Artillery Reveals New Album, “The Face Of Fear” Details, Posts Music Video Online

November 16th will see Artillery release their new album, “The Face Of Fear” – which is the successor to 2016’s “Penalty By Perception.” “The Face Of Fear” is the band’s 9th studio album, and the third with the current lineup. For a preview of the record, a video for the title track can be viewed below.

“The Face Of Fear” can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

– ltd. Digipak-CD with 2 exclusive bonus tracks
– 180 g black vinyl
– opaque grey blue marbeld vinyl (ltd. 300 – EU-exclusive)
– golden yellow blue marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 – EU-exclusive)
– blue green / white splattered vinyl (ltd. 100 – EMP-exclusive)
– blue/black marbled vinyl (ltd. 300 – US-exclusive)

The lyrics are Artillery as you know them, with subjects concerning the destruction of mankind, double standards, abuse and the looming worst-case scenarios. The Face Of Fear was recorded with long-time producer Soren Andersen at Medley Studios. It’s Soren’s fifth time at the helm, and once again he manages to deliver a monster production.

Soren comments: “Pure and raw! Some of the material of this album was originally written in the early 80’s, and that inspired us to go old school this time. Not too many layers, just classic Artillery thrash metal…And Bastholm is better than ever on this one. This is a no-filler album, created together with the band. I’m really proud of the final result and I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I do!”

Artillery comments about the video for “The Face Of Fear”: “Most of the scenes for the video were shot at Amager strand park right outside of Copenhagen. And the live scenes go back to when the band visited Japan and played at the Thrash Dominations together with Exodus, Voivod and Sanctuary. The video was shot by the band’s good friend Terkel Christensen, who also did the video ‘When The Magic is Gone’, from the last album, Penalty By Perception. The song is about dealing the end of man by himself. We create our own phobia about the destruction of the world, but remain disrespectful to the globe.”

The Face Of Fear tracklisting:

1. The Face Of Fear
2. Crossroads To Conspiracy
3. New Rage
4. Sworn Utopia

Destruction Reveals New Drummer Randy Black

German thrash metal legends Destruction are pleased to officially welcome Randy Black (Annihilator, Primal Fear) into the fold, after a gruelling probation that involved extensive touring with many shows around the globe.

Randy will make his official debut as the band’s new drummer at Wacken-Open-Air on August 3rd, 2018.

Mastermind Schmier states:
“Many years ago, when Randy was still with Primal Fear and we were looking for a drummer, it was the first time we talked about Destructions open drummer seat. But we did not wanna approach them at that time because of his obligation with good friends. Some years later he filled in for Vaaver on the American Tour with Sepultura because Vaaver became a father again at that time. So it was obvious for me, to pass the baton to Randy first this time. And he blew us all away with his tight, groovy and over the top drumming. He’s also a very cool Canadian lad that lives in Germany for many years now – so it was a perfect match right away! Hell-come on board buddy!”

Guitar player Mike adds:
“It’s surely not easy to replace an outstanding drummer like VAAVER !!!
But the Show must go on, and RANDY kicks in like a motherfucker…
Solid , groovy, heavy, humble….He´s on fire!!!

“Get prepared my friends …”

And the new Destruction drummer Randy commented:
“After a recent successful tour of Asia, Australia and a handful of great festival shows I’m very happy to announce my position as the new drummer for the Thrash Metal Legends DESTRUCTION!
35 years running! Try to wrap your head around that!
I’m looking forward to continuing the Destruction legacy together with Schmier and Mike including plans of recording a kick ass new CD and touring the planet.

“I‘m chomping at the bit to get out there and Thrash for all you crazy Metal heads on the road soon!“

Jungle Rot Premiere New Music Video “Fearmonger” – Destruction’s Schmier Guests

Jungle Rot‘s tenth studio album will be out in stores on July 20th via Victory Records. The self-titled effort was recorded this past January at Belle City Sound with engineer Chris Djuricic. Dan Swanö (Dark Funeral, Marduk) helmed the mixing and mastering duties. Below you can stream a video for the new single, “Fearmonger“, which features a guest turn from Destruction’s Marcel “Schmier” Schirmer.

Comments Jungle Rot vocalist/guitarist Dave Matrise of that:

“We covered the Destruction classic ‘Invincible Force’ some years ago and Schmier told me ours is his favorite Destruction cover he has ever heard from any band. Years later we toured together and right away Schmier approached me to start singing the song with him in concert. His trademark style and my vocals worked so well together that when I began writing this new record, the idea immediately came up to have him as a guest vocalist. He loved it and was honored to be a part of it. That’s how we created ‘Fearmonger.’”

In addition to playing a June 16th show at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago, IL Jungle Rot will be out on the road again with Havok and Extinction A.D. next month on this U.S. tour:
