Attila & Emmure Frontmen Beefing Via Twitter Following Attila’s New Diss Song “Callout 2”

With Emmure being one of the bands targeted in Attila‘s new single track “Callout 2“ streaming below, the outfit’s vocalist Frankie Palmeri took to Twitter (February 15th) to fire back at Attila mainman Chris Fronzak, tweeting:

Thanks for the shout out bud – I could of helped you at least write a scathing subliminal or something! @FRONZ1LLA – You also might be the first person in history to ever use the word ‘EMMURE’ in a song ??.

— FRANKIE PALMERI (@FrankiePalmeri) February 15, 2018

Y r u so scared to @ me bro?! ?? The rest of my band ain’t who you’re salty about…c’mon sen..?? https://t.co/mlTbj7RvSh

— FRANKIE PALMERI (@FrankiePalmeri) February 15, 2018

Fronzak has since replied tweeting:

You’re absolutely right. I LOVE your band and every member past/present. You’re the arrogant fucktard (in real life). Why didn’t I @ you in the song? Dawg come’on…. no one knows who tf you are ???? https://t.co/mvwHqRbfiV

— SLiME DADDY (@FRONZ1LLA) February 16, 2018

Palmeri firing back at Fronzak:

?? Arrogant? Bruh..the pot calling the kettle black is too real right now. https://t.co/QNgyVRohE2

— FRANKIE PALMERI (@FrankiePalmeri) February 16, 2018

I really don’t have the energy to beef with @FRONZ1LLA – Unfortunately, I inadvertently gave birth to his entire persona and image, anyone with half a brain knows this. Its funny for him to say “no one knows you” but uses my band to chase some internet clout and feed his kids.??

— FRANKIE PALMERI (@FrankiePalmeri) February 17, 2018

I gotta admit Fronzy, you pull off the Frankie Palmeri look even better than I did. pic.twitter.com/J1HztLuFfz

Nightwish Announces Compilation Album, “Decades” And Tour Dates

Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish has announced details for a new two disc compilation album, which will be entitled, “Decades.” The record will be released on March 9th 2018 and will be promoted with a lengthy tour of North America and Europe, which includes a number of festival appearances, concluding with a headline set at the Bloodstock Open Air festival.

“July 6th, 1996 was the exact date marked on my family’s summer cabin guestbook. On that date, by a campfire, a decision was made to form a band of three members, playing atmospheric acoustic music led by a female voice. 15 months later, this group would release its debut album, and more than two decades later, it would release a compilation including songs from 8 studio albums and from the very first demo which gave the band its name.

Speaking about the release, keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen stated: “The infinite freedom and potential I found from songwriting back in the day took me right back home, offering a place to feel free and meaningful. So the roller coaster ride begun, adventures from all sides of the spectrum ahead, making a pit stop at this place and age from where we`re greeting you now. Looking back, the voyage has been nothing short of spectacular.

“The best part of it all, though, are the people. The fellowship of the band, past and present, the crew and the management. The relationships created, whether it’s the fans in the front row, guest musicians, other bands, promoters, media, record label staff, or even your own heroes you never thought you’d meet. I’ve met my best friends through music, as well as faced the most unfortunate ordeals, but it’s all been for the love of life and adventure, for learning, and for a meaning. The sense of privilege I feel looking into the past, the present, and future is immeasurable by words. It’s something that can only be expressed through poetry and music. A journey of two decades has taken our wonderful Edema Ruh this far, and the beauty of the future is, that it remains an untold story.

“In a few months, we’ll celebrate the journey so far in the form of a 9-month nostalgia tour, including material from all of our 8 studio albums. We shall meet you all soon, and it will be wondrous as never before!”

It’s with great, great sadness that I must tell you I have to cancel the Day Of Errors tour dates scheduled in December. I wound up in hospital this past weekend with heart problems. I am OK and in good recovery at this time. However, I’ve never experienced this particular type of heart problem before, and due to its nature, I had to make the decision to cancel the dates.

I want to send my sincere apologies to everyone who was planning to come out to the shows. I’m so sorry we won’t be making it – I was looking forward to seeing you all and sharing this music with you. I’ll be in touch soon.

All my love,
Bill”

All Bill Ward/Day of Errors tour dates have been canceled and will not be rescheduled. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. Tickets purchased through an online ticketing agency will be automatically refunded. Please allow 7-10 days for refunds to appear.

New Lyric Video “Prevail” Posted By Kobra And The Lotus

“Prevail I,” the latest offering by Canada’s hottest metal export Kobra And The Lotus, has been successfully released in May 2017 via Napalm Records. A true rock juggernaut full of blistering guitars, pounding rhythms and haunting vocal melodies that is taking the listener on a sonic journey leading them out from the darkness and into the light. Produced by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica etc) and mastered by Grammy award winning Ted Jensen, “Prevail I” has undoubtedly ushered the band to a much deserved elevated hard rock status.

Now the band fronted by charismatic vocalist Kobra Paige has unveiled a brand new lyric video for the track “Prevail,” which to you can enjoy in the player below.

The band informs us: “This one’s for all the non-believers…the people on the outside and the voice inside your head that said you’d never make it out. The voice that told you to stop dreaming. The devil on your shoulder whispering ‘Go ahead and quit, you’re not good enough anyways.’

“Out with the hate and in with the love. There’s a new mantra in town and it’s slamming that shadowed voice into the ground. We will Prevail and we are never backing down!”

Evolution is inevitable and Kobra And The Lotus delivered the most powerful album to date, “Prevail I,” with “Prevail II” to complete the story in the not too distant future…

Music Video For New Single “Visionary” Posted By Silenmara, New EP Revealed

Following a turbulent few months for the band, Florida melodic death metal outfit Silenmara has come back fighting with a brand new music video single and details of a polished EP produced by Jamie King that promotes their fight for musical freedom. Check out the video for the new single “Visionary.” The song is available for purchase via Bandcamp at this location).

The song appears on the new EP “A Darkened Visionary” coming December 15th.

Guitarist Jason Gato commented on the song: “Lyrically, the song ‘Visionary’ was written about decisions. A person can take one of two roads. One simple mistake or miscalculation could be life changing or even fatal. On the other hand one focused and calculated decision can change a persons life for the best. It’s all about your mindset and your ability to make serious decisions under pressure. When you’re on a ‘Bridge of defeat, could you stand for denial’?

“Musically we wrote this song for one specific purpose, to deliver an emotion. We wanted our people to feel the love we have for this music. It is filled with guitar melodies and odd time trickery that we have come to embrace in our writing. A very catchy guitar lick meets an aggressive vocal melody begging for guidance and hoping for forgiveness. We chose this song for its ability to find its way into your mind and stay. Our Vision of musical freedom.”

Having fought through hurricanes, family deaths and constant delays on the production of the EP, Silenmara is now ready to unleash their masterpiece onto the world and look forward to reclaiming the fan’s hearts. Silenmara combines the best aspects of the two most iconic death metal schools in the world; the melodic flails of Sweden’s Gothenburg sound with Florida’s style of aggressive death metal.

2017 sees Silenmara embarking into a new era with the release of the fourth studio effort “A Darkened Visionary” EP, which is set for a December 15th release. This EP welcomes new guitar player Marcus Noga, which has only broadened Silenmara’s musical horizons. Silenmara has also contracted the talented Giovanni Angel to engineer the EP and Jamie King (The Contortionist, BTBAM) to mix and master the record. The outcome is a very polished, matured and reenergised recording.

“This EP was very emotionally driven, we lost a few family members during the tracking process, that really hurt the progress at the beginning, but we did it. We powered through some pretty serious personal tragedies. We also had to deal with a Category 4 hurricane IRMA during the mixing process, that was also a bit of an inconvenience to say the least” says Gato.

More information on the EP is expected soon. Check out the “Visionary” music video here:

Debut Self-Titled EP To Be Released By Lark

Progressive sludge/stoner metal band Lark is set to release the debut, self-titled album on October 31st. The band features former members of Bright Curse and Sail In Between.

Lark is the overdue collaboration of two French brothers, Raph, former guitarist and lead singer of Sail In Between and former bassist of Angher Incorporated and Zach, former drummer of Bright Curse. The elder resides in their native south of France, while the younger moved to London in 2009 to explore the UK music scene.

Zach evolved in the stoner, psyche and hard rock tones in recent years while Raph followed his love for hardcore and prog, but their tastes meet in a rock and metal avalanche of riffs, grooves and all that is heavy. They shared a vision of music that combines massive and textured sound with the groove of their early metal influence.

The two brothers rapidly found ways around the distance between them and started their first creative collaboration at the beginning of 2017. The EP came to life thanks to the help of Robin Mariat of Grey Matter Studio (Lyon, Fr), Chris Painter of Red Roof Sounds (London, Uk), Marco of Marc&Cheese (London, Uk) and Jake Read of Living Room Studios (London, Uk).

The band is set to release their first EP “Lark,” a new blend of metal inspired by Mastodon, Opeth, Gojira, Black Peaks, Russian Circles and more this fall. The D-day is set for Halloween 2017 when the extensive network of VIPs will meet and celebrate at a location not yet disclosed.
