Nailed To Obscurity Announces Tour Dates With Dark Tranquillity

Just shortly after the release of full-length album “King Delusion” last Friday, melodic death metal doomsters Nailed To Obscurity today announces a European tour with none other than Gothenburg melodic death metal pioneers Dark Tranquillity.

Guitarist Jan-Ole Lamberti comments: “Touring with a legendary band like Dark Tranquillity is definitely a dream coming true for us!

“We were about 15 years old when Damage Done came out and Volker and I were completely blown away by the album and so we were listening to it over and over again and it became one of our alltime favorite records. This band had such a strong influence on us in every possible way and it will be an honor for us to support them on their European headline shows in April/May.”

Circle Of Witches Finishes Recording New Album

Italian heavy metal band Circle Of Witches recently hit the stage at Metal Frenzy Festival in Germany alongside such names as Dark Tranquillity and Decapitation.

“We are firmly linked to Germany on the musical side”, said Mario Bove, frontman of the band, “because some of our favorite acts are band like Kreator, Destruction, Accept, or Blind Guardian, but above all, because we had our baptism of fire on huge stages by opening Doro and UDO’s Russian gigs last year. German public is well known for being demanding and learned about metal performances. This excites us much more.”

Circle Of Witches also just wrapped up recording for a new album, which has now entered the mixing phase. Stay tuned for further news about the title and release date to arrive in the coming weeks. In the mean time, footage from a performance in Russia is available below.

Sodom Reveals More Details On New Album “Decision Day”

German thrash legends Sodom announced more details on the upcoming new full length album “Decision Day,” which is due to drop on August 26th via SPV/Steamhammer Records.

Together with his two comrades-in-arms, guitarist Bernemann and drummer Markus “Makka” Freiwald, bassist/vocalist Tom Angelripper spent four months at the studio honing the new Sodom material. The result is a hard-as-nails, diverse thrash metal offering on the subject of D-Day, the day in June 1944 when the troops of the Western Allied forces landed in Normandy to liberate mainland Europe from the scourge of Nazi Germany.

Songs such as “Belligerence,” “Decision Day” and “Strange Lost World” present the Sodom front man once more as a historically well-versed contemporary witness and critical observer of current international events. “Decision Day” was produced by Cornelius “Corny” Rambadt, sound engineer and drummer with Angelripper’s side project Onkel Tom.

The new release is bound to cause a stir, not least thanks to its impressive artwork courtesy of none other than Joe Petagno. As well as having worked for Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, Petagno is also Motörhead’s favored graphic designer and has created legendary album covers such as Overkill, Orgasmatron and Another Perfect Day. Angelripper: “I was surprised and proud to learn how familiar Joe is with Sodom, immediately bringing up associations of our “Knarrenheinz” when we talked about the artwork. For a Motörhead fan like myself, this cover is an absolute dream come true.”

Petagno commented: “After having spoken with Tom about the current state of world affairs and heard some brilliant tracks from the album I wanted to visualize the History of Man from the dawn of creation to the mess we have today. Firstly and rather obviously it’s World War 3. However on psychological and symbolic level it’s considerably more. I used ‘Knarrenheinz’ as a symbol for the countless numbers who have soldiered on thru’ the centuries in one guise or another just to get us here anno 2016 where we seem to be on the brink of another possible eruption.”

The track list for “Decision Day” is:

1. In Retribution
2. Rolling Thunder
3. Decision Day
4. Caligula
5. Who Is God?
6. Strange Lost World
7. Vaginal Born Evil
8. Belligerence
9. Blood Lions
10. Sacred Warpath
11. Refused To Die
12. Predatory Instinct (bonus track for vinyl and iTunes edition)
