Judas Priest Guitarist Glenn Tipton Diagnosed With Parkinson’s Disease – Takes A Break From Touring

10 years ago, Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton was diagnosed with the access of the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. Nevertheless the 70-year-old heavy metal veteran has lived his life as the great live guitarist he has always been known for.

At present, Tipton is able to perform some of the less challenging Judas Priest tracks, but due to the nature of Parkinson’s progression, he wants to let the fans know that he won’t be touring with the band for the time being. Glenn Tipton has requested Judas Priest producer and Hell guitarist Andy Sneap to step in for him.

Says Glenn: “I want everyone to know that it’s vital that the Judas Priest tour go ahead and that I am not leaving the band – it’s simply that my role has changed. I don’t rule out the chance to go on stage as and when I feel able to blast out some Priest! So at some point in the not-too-distant future, I’m really looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful metal maniacs once again.”

States the band:

“We have been privileged to witness Glenn’s determination and steadfast commitment over the years, showing his passion and self belief through the writing, recording and performing sessions with Priest. He is a true metal hero! We are not surprised by Glenn’s insistence that we complete the ‘Firepower’ tour and thank Andy for joining us to make Glenn’s wishes become real. As Glenn has said, we also can’t wait to have him with us at any time any place on the road. We love you, Glenn!”

New Music Video “To Your Brethren In The Dark” Released By Satyricon

Norway’s Satyricon released the new video clip for “To Your Brethren In The Dark” courtesy of Metal Injection at this location, or even easier – just down in the player below. The song is taken from the band’s latest album “Deep calleth upon Deep,” which was released on September 22nd via Napalm Records.

Speaking about the new video, frontman and band visionary, Satyr tells us, “I wanted ‘To your brethren in the dark’ to be a director’s interpretation of the song, rather than a band performance type of thing. Seeing what we do through the eyes of another artist is always interesting to me and just like the song, the video has become a little bit of a journey on it’s own. ‘To your brethren in the dark’ is definitely one of the flagship songs on the record. It is about emotion, our nature, the spirits, the autumn, the sombre and rainy days, those who we lost and the ones who we have not met yet. You could say it is a tribute to the sorrow in man and to the drama of the nature we surround ourselves with. A song for the dark towers of the past and those who will rise in the future. Pass the torch to your brethren in the dark.”

Moonspell Reveals New Album “1755”

Moonspell will release new album “1755” on November 3rd, 2017 via Napalm Records. The record label comments:

“From the first second the conceptual dramaturgy Moonspell has created feels like a detonation of the mind. ‘1755’ is more than just the band’s new magnum opus: It’s the musical version of the year of horror where a giant earthquake wrecked their home Lisbon. Naturally this album comes and is sung in Portuguese.”

The album was produced by Tue Madsen and also features Paulo Bragança supplying the haunting voice of a Fado fallen angel who is a big part of the Portuguese culture. His fascinating vocals are featured on “In Tremor Dei” (English: “Fear Of God”).

Now the band, fronted by Fernando Ribeiro, unveils full details about “1755” and unleash the cover artwork as well as the album track list. Says Fernando:

“I have been fascinated with Portuguese history since I can remember. The year of 1755 marked the birth of a new Portugal. Much more than just the greatest natural disaster ever to occur on European soil, the great Lisbon Quake, shockwaves can not be reduced to a dramatic death toll.

“From absolute tragedy, a new city was born, giving way to a new time where Portuguese relied more on themselves than on the crown or the cross, granting us, much of the city, the lay country, the free will that we enjoy today. This is not just another album from us. It’s a musical and lyrical History document, a homage we pay to our legacy and to the amazing skills and resilience of our fellow Portuguese back then, of all mankind when brought down to the knees by the violent forces of Nature and Reason. Whatever is, is right… yet the earth shakes.”

1. Em Nome Do Medo
2. 1755
3. In Tremor Dei (featuring Portuguese guest vocalist Paulo Bragança!)
4. Desastre
5. Abanão
6. Evento
7. 1 De Novembro
8. Ruínas
9. Todos Os Santos
10. Lanterna Dos Afogados
