Argonauta Records Inks Deal With Di’Aul

Argonauta announced that the label has inked a deal with Italian heavy rockers Di’Aul (“The Owl”).

Formed in Milan during 2010, Di’Aul released the debut EP “GV 12.31” in 2010 and the first full length album “And Then Came the Monsters” in 2013, followed by their second opus “Garden of Exile” in 2015.

The band is now working on the final touches of the new album entitled “Nobody’s Heaven,” where subtle complexities bind together stunning 70’s rock songwriting and 90’s metal groove. The final result is an impressive step forward of the band, thanks to a distinctive and unique sound able to blend the aggression of Crowbar and the apocalyptic visions of Killing Joke.

“Nobody’s Heaven” is scheduled for release in February 2018. More details to be revealed soon.

Tim Lambesis Reportedly Released From Prison

Back in 2014, former As I Lay Dying member Tim Lambesis was sentenced to six years in prison for attempting to hire an undercover police officer to kill his wife.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed by any official sources at this point, multiple sites are reporting that Lambesis has now been released from prison.

The source for his info comes from George Lynch on Eddie Trunk’s Show from the Monsters of Rock Cruise. During the interview, Lynch discussed his religion debates with Tim Lambesis and stated Tim has been released and has a book and record label deal.

You can hear the interview segment below, and a transcript follows:

I had every freaking argument out there, and he just was able to really kind of battle every argument, ’cause he had every counter-argument prepared in his mind; he had studied so hard. And as silly as his argument was, and as much as it didn’t really hold water when you thought about it — it was all fallacious arguments — but…

Anyways, he just got out of jail for attempting to kill his wife. Now I’m not saying this as an indictment against anything. All I’m saying is, there is a guy who could argue Christianity beyond anybody I’ve ever spoken to in my life; I had these very heated debates with this guy… He had a beautiful wife; they had adopted three Cambodian children. And then he discovered cocaine, strippers, heroin and steroids. He went completely off the rails, abandoned his family, his wife threatened to divorce him, he hired an off-duty cop to kill her.

He recently got out of jail. He destroyed his band. They don’t have a pot to piss in now; they’re all struggling. [They are] a great band. I know them very well because, actually, the guitar player was my daughter’s fiancé. And, actually, the drummer [Jordan Mancino] played in another project I had ways back, Souls Of We. So, anyways, he’s out, he’s got a mega record deal, he’s got a book deal, everything’s lined up for him. I mean, he’s gonna skate through life. Everybody else is suffering. His wife is living in fear, his children are living in fear. His band doesn’t have a pot to piss in.

Following the arrest and band implosion, Tim’s former bandmates went on to form Wovenwar, and have since released two albums: a self-titled debut and 2016 sophomore output “Honor Is Dead.”

Robots And Monsters Posts New Song “Signing Off”

A new single is now streaming online from Robots And Monsters’ upcoming “Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight” EP. “Signing Off” is the closing track to the new seven-song record, which follows a concept about battling your own mind.

Robots And Monsters comments: “By the end of his journey, our anti-hero takes full ownership of his thoughts. In ‘Signing Off,’ we find him embracing the dread, the sadness. He yearns for peace, to ‘leave it all behind.’ Whether that means a physical end or a symbolic end to this internal suffering is up to the listener to decide.”

Check out the song below, and you can also see Robots And Monsters performing live on these dates:

8/06/2016 33 Golden Street – New London, CT

Sleep Of Monsters Posts “Golden Bough” Lyric Video

Today, Sleep of Monsters premieres a lyric video for “Golden Bough.” The track hails from the band’s second album, “Sleep of Monsters II: Poison Garden,” set for international release on June 3rd via Svart Records.

Recorded in an old hilltop villa in Álora, Spain, “Sleep of Monsters II: Poison Garden” sees this unique Finnish band venture into even richer, more dramatic and hauntingly beautiful soundscapes, complete with strings and horns… and hooves. Think of Lee Hazlewood getting drunk with the Abba girls in a metal bar, slurring some of the most spine-chilling (mostly) true tales of human tragedy and the occult ever heard in rock ‘n’ roll, and you’ll arrive at the moss-covered gates of “Poison Garden.” The new album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Poison King
2. Golden Bough
3. The Art of Passau
4. Babes in the Abyss
5. Beyond the Fields We Know
6. The Devil and All His Works
7. Our Dark Mother
8. Foreign Armies East
9. Land of Nod
