Psycho Las Vegas 2017 (featuring King Diamond)

– May 19th, 2017 –

Tickets on sale now, plus hotel discounts available

Set to take place from August 18th through August 20th (with a pre-party on August 17th at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada), Psycho Las Vegas 2017 will see the legendary King Diamond perform the Abigail album in its entirety as a USA-exclusive show for 2017. Other headliners at the festival include Mastodon, Neurosis, Corrosion of Conformity, among countless other bands as support. It is already – and rightly so – being hailed as one of the best heavy lineups ever put together for an American festival.

Last year, Dig Boston lauded Psycho Las Vegas for boasting “one of the most amazing festival lineups” to-date. BrooklynVegan praised the event as both “fun [and] weird” with a sound quality that was “absolutely top-level,” while Las Vegas Review Journal celebrated the festival’s “communal, come-as-you-are vibe,” adding that “the whole weekend had the feel of a heavy-metal family gathering meets ‘The Big Lebowski’; a laid-back get-together with an ensemble cast of far-out characters, from gray-haired dudes in Captain Beefheart T-shirts to Yeti-shaggy heavy-metal epicureans…Noisey concurred, hailing Psycho Las Vegas for fulfilling “every hesher’s fantasy of wandering around the Hard Rock Hotel stoned out of your mind while alternating between gambling, getting wasted, smoking cigarettes indoors, eating Mexican food, flaunting tattoos, and, of course, watching a seemingly endless onslaught of metal bands perform.

And this year, Psycho Las Vegas will only up the proverbial ante with exclusive 2017 USA appearances by French progressive rock unit Magma, black metallers Abbath led by former Immortal guitarist/vocalist Abbath Doom Occulta, and cult stoner/desert rock unit Slo Burn, fronted by Kyuss‘ John Garcia. Additionally, Mulatu Astatke, the father of Ethio-jazz, will be making his west of Chicago exclusive appearance, while Manilla Road, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary, will perform their classic Crystal Logic in its entirety as a worldwide exclusive for Psycho Las Vegas.

Clutch is touring in support of the band’s 11th album “Psychic Warfare,” while laying the groundwork for a next studio album release.

The brainchild of Mike Patton, Fantômas is an anti-hero from a series of pre-WWI French crime novels, sometimes dubbed the “lord of terror.” Rounding out the lineup are Buzz Osborne on guitar (Melvins), Trevor Dunn on bass (Mr. Bungle, Trevor Dunn’s Trio-Convulsant) ,and Dale Crover (Melvins) on drums. This will mark the band’s first U.S. show since 2008.

Tickets for the show, which is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents and Live Nation Los Angeles, are on sale now.

Merrimack Streaming New Song “Cesspool Coronation”

The French black metal cultists from Merrimack are now streaming a third new track from “Omegaphilia,” The track, an abrasive, dissonant opus titled “Cesspool Coronation,” is available for streaming below.

Merrimack comments: “We like to invite vocalists that we consider to be among the very best in the realm of black metal. On our previous record, we worked with Marduk’s Mortuus. This time we asked Aldrahn (Dodheimsgard, Thorns) to record few passages for the track ‘Cesspool Coronation.’

“His unique voice blends perfectly with the intensity of this song. This track starts off mid-tempo riffs and escalates quickly into a frenzy, before ending with an oppressive riff that eradicates any hope and light. For the first time, we’ve written part of the lyrics in French, which can be heard in the track’s closing speech. “

New album “Omegaphilia” releases worldwide on June 9th via Season Of Mist and bears the following trackl isting:

1. Cauterizing Cosmos
2. The Falsified Son (click here to stream)
3. Apophatic Weaponry (click here to stream)
4. Gutters of Pain
5. Sights in the Abysmal Lure
6. Cesspool Coronation
7. At the Vanguard of Deception

Igorrr Releases “Opus Brain” New Video

On June 16th, Igorrr – the brainchild of French musician and eclectic composer Gautier Serre – will release new album, “Savage Sinusoid,” via Metal Blade Records.

On this record, electronic manipulations, accordion, saxophone, sitar, harpsichord, mandolin and strings sit comfortably alongside ruthless blastbeats, chunky riffs, death grunts and soaring operatic vocals – and as chaotic as this might sometimes seem, there is no lack of heart behind everything thundering from the speakers.

Igorrr launches “Opus Brain” video online

– May 3rd, 2017 –

On June 16th, Igorrr – the brainchild of French musician and eclectic composer Gautier Serre – will release their new album, Savage Sinusoid, via Metal Blade Records. On this record, electronic manipulations, accordion, saxophone, sitar, harpsichord, mandolin and strings sit comfortably alongside ruthless blastbeats, chunky riffs, death grunts and soaring operatic vocals – and as chaotic as this might sometimes seem, there is no lack of heart behind everything thundering from the speakers. For a preview of Savage Sinusoid, a new video for the track “Opus Brain” (directed by Garrick J. Lauterbach // vimeo.com/letterboxcollective) can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=Z5Qk89_xMcs

The album’s first single, “ieuD”, and part 1 of the making of Savage Sinusoid can also be viewed at: metalblade.com/igorrr – where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–Digipak CD
–pale skin clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies)
–cream/white splatter (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–golden yellow vinyl (limited to 100 copies – Bandcamp exclusive)
–tan-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)
*exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Savage Sinusoid track-listing:
1. Viande
2. ieuD
3. Houmous
4. Opus Brain
5. Problème d’émotion
6. Spaghetti Forever
7. Cheval
8. Apopathodiaphulatophobie
9. Va te foutre
10. Robert
11. Au Revoir

To realize Savage Sinusoid as a completely sample-free record, Serre reunited with vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec, along with drummer Sylvain Bouvier, and collaborated with more musicians than on any of his previous releases – one of those guests being Cattle Decapitation‘s Travis Ryan, who lends his vocals on “Cheval”, “Apopathodiaphulatophobie” and “Robert”. “Viande” also sees Teloch (Mayhem) contribute some guitar/bass work, while “Houmous” features accordionists Pierre Mussi and Adam Stacey (the latter of whom is in Secret Chiefs 3 – a project by Mr. Bungle‘s Trey Spruance). While Savage Sinusoid draws from a plethora of genres, Serre has no intention of baffling or alienating potential listeners. As he explains:“I just want to make the music I love, without asking myself if it’s gonna be too complex or too far from what people like. I want to make the music which has sense to me, with no restrictions, like a big party with metalheads, electronics nerds, classical and baroque-heads and gypsy violinists getting drunk and joining together to bring the best of every genre.”

Igorrr will give European fans their first taste of new songs this spring/summer, with more shows to be announced soon. See below for all dates!

Sliptrick Inks Deal With Worselder For New Album “Paradigms Lost”

French act Worselder signed on with Sliptrick Records. The band will release the new album “Paradigms Lost” later this year, with information forthcoming soon.

“Making no concessions on style or trends…” – This could be the Worselder mantra and even though the band could just offer old school metal with no search of originality, Worselder prefer to develop music at the crossroads of many influences which is quite impossible to label. The band was formed in 2008 at the foothills of the French Pyrénées mountains and quickly created a unique sound signature, blending the many influences of its members through 90’s heavy-thrash and power metal roots. Worselder then add to the strength and heaviness with actual metal rhythms. The vocals underline the mixing of styles, by alternating between heavy lyrical lines and death gutturals.

The band is deeply and proudly committed to its Pyrenean roots; it influences the atmosphere of its music, which is both dark and optimistic, with lyrics formed from topical events, as well as historical references.

Stay tuned for more information.
