Dragonlord Posts New Making Of Album, “Dominion” Episode Online

Dragonlord, the black metal project from Testament guitarist Eric Peterson, has posted the second video in their series chronicling the making of new album, “Dominion” online. You can check it out below, along with the previous installment. The record will be released on September 21st through Spinefarm Records and is their first since 2006’s, “Black Wings Of Destiny.”

Speaking about the album, Peterson said: “I’m super stoked for you all to finally hear “Dominion”! This song has all the arsenal to engage any metal appetite! From the first drum cannon-walloping performed by Alex Bent, to the melodic discorded sounds of my guitars and haunting choirs performed by Celtic singer Leah, entering in my lyrical blackened satanic tongue followed by unholy orchestrated strings and violas performed by Mr. Livingston – this song has it all! A beautiful violent storm whirls your way! Breaking down to two old school influenced guitar solos voiced before and after some cleaner melodic singing, only to be sucked back into the vortex… Enjoy!”

Primitive Race Unveils New Album “Soul Pretender”

Primitive Race — the hard rock/industrial hybrid helmed by Chris Kniker with core members Mark Gemini Thwaite (The Mission UK/Peter Murphy) and Erie Loch (Wiccid/Luxt) — will release sophomore album “Soul Pretender” on November 3rd via Metropolis Records.

As was the case with the band’s debut, Kniker brought on a group of guest musicians into the Primitive Race fold, with the full album featuring vocals by former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley and drums by the Melvins’ Dale Crover.

The album was produced by the band’s core trio, with Kniker recruiting Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More/Sepultura) for mastering, Toshi Kasai (Melvins/Helmet) for engineering, and Joe Haze (tweaker/PIG) for mixing.

“Musically, ‘Soul Pretender’ was a natural progression from the first album,” explains Kniker. “To have Chuck and Dale involved was perfect! They really brought a new vision to the project. Their style is a perfect match with Mark, Erie and myself. This record is more focused and organic. I wanted more of an alternative rock record. Stripped down. Live real drums. There’s space in the record. I didn’t want some overly polished ‘perfect’ record.”

1. Row House
2. Cry Out
3. Cranial Matter
4. Take It All
5. Bed Six
6. Stepping Stone
7. Turn It Up

Deity Premieres New Song “Sacrificium” From Upcoming New Self-Titled Album

Canadian death metal band Deity premieres a new song entitled “Sacrificium”, taken from the upcoming new self-titled album, which will be out in stores June 2nd.

Check out now “Sacrificium” below.

Comments vocalist/guitarist John Massey about the song:

“‘Sacrificium’ is one of those songs when it kicks in you just want to run into the mosh pit. From the first drop you can hear the intensity of the vocals, the technical yet melodic riffing, and the hard hitting drums. We have a very Slayeresque chaotic dual guitar solo in which we pay homage to Jeff Hanneman as well. We kept the arrangements and transitions more true to old school death metal. Lyrically, “Sacrificium” is about people treating you like shit, trying to belittle you because they are better known, and the kind of people who wouldn’t have the guts to confront you face-to-face.”

New Album “Overloaded” Announced By 42 Decibel, Video Clip For New Single Available

With the impressive debut album “Hard Rock ‘n’ Roll” (2013), the follow up “Rolling In Town” (2015), and fresh from the first European tour in 2016, 42 Decibel is making a comeback with the latest album, “Overloaded,” which will be released by Steamhammer/SPV on June 23rd. A video clip for the new single “Dangerous Mess” can be seen below.

42 Decibel has recorded ten new rock tracks inspired by the idea of pushing a piece of equipment to its limits. The band recorded and mixed with this in mind, so most of the equipment used in the recording was pushed to its limits; VU meters hitting the red zone, red lights flashing resulting in various types of distortion. Overloaded still carries the Blues Rock torch from the previous albums, but this time 42 Decibel cranked it up a notch to give a more explosive experience but with that same Hard Rock n Roll these boys are known for.

With “Overloaded,” 42 Decibel resolutely follow the course set out on in early 2010 with the first 7-track demo and went straight on to put into serial production with the debut “Hard Rock ‘n’ Roll.” The current line-up with Junior Figueroa, Nicko Cambiasso, Billy Bob and Matt Fraga, is bursting with energy and thirst for action, and – with the exception of the final mastering of the album, for which the band members once more enlisted the services of Justin Weis – took on the entire spectrum of tasks involved in a dynamic studio production themselves.

The track listing for “Overloaded” is:

1. Whiskey Joint 3:07
2. Dangerous Mess 3:22
3. Brawler 3:42
4. Roadkiller 3:46
5. Hot Shot 3:03
6. Half Face Dead 2:39
7. Lost Case 4:37
8. Cause Damage 4:09
9. Double Itch Blues 6:55
10. Cannon Fodder 4:44
