AC/DC Founding Guitarist Malcolm Young Has Died Aged 64

Malcolm Young, arguably the backbone of Australian rock legends AC/DC, has sadly passed away at the age of 64, the band has announced. The cause of death is not yet known, but the guitarist had been battling dementia for a while, which caused him to leave the group in 2014. A statement on the AC/DC website reads as follows:

“Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.

“Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band. As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.

“As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever.

“Malcolm, job well done.”

Malcolm Young was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1953 and moved to Sydney, Australia as a child with his family. It was there that he co-founded AC/DC with his younger brother Angus in 1973. Their early material was produced by another Young brother, George, who himself passed away only last month and achieved some success of his own with The Easybeats. AC/DC went on to sell over 200 million albums worldwide, more than The Rolling Stones, Queen, Eminem and U2.

Good Tiger releases new video, “Grip Shoes”, online

– November 15th, 2017 –

Today, rock quintet Good Tiger is thrilled to share their brand new video, “Grip Shoes”, which can be viewed now at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSleQSJyaWY. The track comes from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album, We Will All Be Gone, which is set to be released on February 9th via Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders are available now at metalblade.com/goodtiger

On the new track, vocalist Elliot Coleman shares: “‘Grip Shoes’ tells the tale of wasted potential; I’m sure we all find times in our life that are trivial, and not spent capitalizing on every moment. I’m very excited to share another track from our album, especially ‘Grip Shoes,’ as it’s one of my favourites.”

Good Tiger is currently on tour with I the Mighty and Hail The Sun, with shows in Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and more. For a full list of remaining dates, please see below or visit: bandsintown.com/goodtiger

Blending their influences in a manner that defies lazy classification sets Good Tiger apart from their contemporaries, imbuing everything they do with a distinctive sound and feel, and with We Will All Be Gone, Good Tiger have dramatically built upon their stunning debut, 2015′s A Head Full Of Moonlight.

Comprised of guitarists Derya “Dez” Nagle and Joaquin Ardiles, bassist Morgan Sinclair, drummer Alex Rudinger, and vocalist Elliot Coleman, Good Tiger has raised the stakes across the board – every track on We Will All Be Gone has a definitive character of its own, and none stay in a single gear, all of them dynamic and textured as they evoke various tones and moods. Tracking at Middle Farm Studios in southwest England, the band recruited producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool/Dead Letter Circus), and engineer/mixer Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery/Animals As Leaders). “We worked with Nolly on the last album, we had a great working relationship, and wanted to explore that further in a more developed situation,” Dez explains. “Forrester has made some of our favorite albums, and is someone we could trust steering the ship. Having self-produced for so long it can be at times quite difficult to let go, so it was important we found people we could fully entrust to help create the album we wanted to make.”


We Will All Be Gone track-listing:
1. The Devil Thinks I’m Sinking
2. Float On
3. Such a Kind Stranger
4. Blueshift
5. Salt of the Earth
6. Grip Shoes
7. Just Shy
8. Nineteen Grams
9. Cherry Lemon
10. I’ll Finish This Book Later

Good Tiger tour dates

Nov. 18 – Los Angeles, CA @ Moroccan Lounge

Ancient VVisdom Premiere New Video For “Light Of Lucifer” From Upcoming New Album “XYYY”

The occult rock act in Ancient VVisdom are pleased to unveil the official new visual accompaniment to the track “Light Of Lucifer” from their recently-issued “33” full-length.

Watch the video below:

The clip, shot in a historically haunted auditorium, is currently playing at BrooklynVegan. Notes Nathan “Opposition” Jochum, “We filmed at one of the most haunted places in Ohio in an auditorium referred to by some as a ‘vortex’ or ‘portal to hell’ at the House Of Wills, which is the current location of The New Church Of Satan in Cleveland. Owner, good friend of mine, and Satanic High Priest Eric Freeman allowed us to take part in this ritual and capture the House’s energy. 49,000 square feet of decaying beauty, this building is still rich with history as it was an African American Masonic mortuary for many years prior to Eric taking ownership. The house needs many repairs after being abandoned and stripped, so I volunteer my time whenever I am available to help restore this once magnificent historic building. Eric has dedicated his life to the restoration. Ghost tours and paranormal investigations available upon request.”

New video trailer revealed from Dimebag Darrell’s ‘Dimevision Vol. 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over’ DVD/CD

– November 7th, 2017 –

Everyone loves sneak peeks! Today, Guitar World presents a special, exclusive trailer from the upcoming video memorial set, Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over, out November 24th via Metal Blade Records. Watch the exclusive trailer – which includes raw footage of Dimebag Darrell in his performance element – and read quotes from Rita Haney here: guitarworld.com/artists/dimevision-2-trailer

Rita Haney tells Guitar World: “Dime is true reality TV, way before any of what goes on today was even a concept! He didn’t need someone to script in a scenario or stage in a moment to make his life appear more interesting…He created these moments himself, 24/7! He had a gift for noticing the beauty in everything, and when I say ‘beauty,’ I mean ‘catchin’ a nut’ on all his surroundings! Life like ‘that’ goes on around you all the time, you just gotta see it and catch it. And he did! And he made the most of it, always! That’s exactly what we mean by the term ‘Dimevision‘.”

Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over is a follow up to the poignant first Dimebag Darrell video memorial set Dimevision Vol 1: That’s The Fun I Have, and is another true celebration of Dimebag and how he lived his life. The DVD/CD set – which will include more raw footage, true gems and classic moments – will hit retailers on November 24th. The set will also include five previously unreleased demos, picked from a vast catalog Dimebag accrued since longtime girlfriend Rita Haney gave him his first 4-track in 1984. Dimebag’s personally-written lyrics, dates and notes on those tracks will also be included.

Pre-orders for Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over are now available via Metal Blade at: metalblade.com/dimevision. A PledgeMusic campaign has also been launched to support the release of the set, also acting as a pre-order. The PledgeMusic campaign includes an assortment of rare items to buy, including props and costumes that belonged to Dimebag and that you can see in his home videos/Dimevision volumes, rare stage clothing, and other merchandise. Visit the PledgeMusic page here: pledgemusic.com/projects/dimevision2

Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over continues in the same vein as Dimevision Vol 1: That’s The Fun I Have with the inclusion of hilarious video segments that will bring back great memories for any fan of Dimebag Darrell and his bands. Check out two other exclusive clips revealed from the set, the first including a very interesting CPAP machine fitting clip, and another showcasing a few of Dime’s favorite costumes and props available in the PledgeMusic pre-order.

Going into making Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over, Rita Haney worked in collaboration with Daryl “Bobby Tongs” Arnberger, who was not only one of Dimebag’s closest friends both on and off the road, but also worked as an official videographer for Pantera, Damageplan and a plethora of A-list musicians, from Slipknot to Dolly Parton, along with film editor Rob Fenn. After cataloguing hundreds of tapes, they chose 43 segments to create Dimevision Vol. 2.

“He had a unique way of seeing things, and he always lived with a video camera,” says Haney. “No matter where we went he was always capturing what was going on, and myself and others around him were filming a lot too. In putting out these videos I just want people to see the way he was, 24/7. What you saw on stage and backstage, that was how he lived.”

Haney adds, “There were some really touching, deep, heavy and emotional moments in the first one, where he’s talking about himself to the camera while in the shower. Filming himself like that was something he did a lot, and you’d have no clue until you’re looking through the tapes and come across them, and when you do the goosebumps crawl all over you. People that love and know Darrell are going to be touched by what he has to say, because it’s him telling you for the first time.”

Shining Premieres New Song “Gyllene Portarnas Bro” From Upcoming New Album “X – Varg Utan Flock”

Sweden’s Shining premieres its new song “Gyllene Portarnas Bro“, taken from the band’s forthcoming album “X – Varg Utan Flock”. The outing which will be released on January 05th via Season Of Mist.

Comments Niklas Kvarforth of the song:

“‘Gyllene Portarnas Bro‘ has been in the works since 1999 and is one of the calmer songs on the album. Built around three different parts, it was originally intended for the ‘Livets Ändhållplats‘ album. It was later reworked for ‘Redefining Darkness‘, but it isnt until now that the song finally started to make sense. Lyrically it speaks of the suduction of the human mind and spirit, the ultimate destruction of the life cycle of the one being seduced. Indeed this track sets the mood for the violent darkness that follows.”
