North Hammer Premiere New Track “Magic Mead”

North Hammer is premiering the third single “Magic Mead”, a song taken from their upcoming new album “Stormcaller” set for release on March 16th, 2018.

Mainman Andrew James comments:

“‘Magic Mead takes us to the lodgings of the hero as he celebrates a glorious victory with his fellow brothers in arms over a distant tyrant king. As the militia feast and drink to their new found glory, a strange and fantastical looking woman catches his attention away from the camp. The magic mead part of it is contributed to his magical encounter with this woman as he follows her further into the night. Hallucinations start to happen and he eventually loses control of himself and passes out. This is the reason I chose to put the more blasty and dark ending to the song.”

At The Gates: Details Of New Album “To Drink From The Night Itself” Revealed

At The Gates reveal the official details for their new full-length “To Drink From The Night Itself“. Century Media have the Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir) produced effort scheduled for a May 18th release date. A video produced by Patric Ullaeus (In Flames, Arch Enemy) for the first single will be premiered soon as well.

Comments vocalist Tomas Lindberg of the cover art:

“It has once again been an absolute pleasure working creativily with Costin [Chioreanu.] We had a lot of ideas for what we wanted to get across with the art this time around. Overall they were, not surprisingly, related to the general concept of the record. What is great with Costin is that he understands the band.

He knows what we are and where we come from. And me and him also have a strong artistic connection. I have never met anyone that goes so deep into the world of my lyrics and concepts. When I first wrote to him describing my ideas, I was worried that my remarks were perhaps too long and too confusing, only to get back an even longer and very inspired response…

The inspiration for the actual front cover piece is taken from the Pergamon Altar, on display at the Pergamon museum in Berlin. It is of course linked closely to the concept that the whole record is based upon, but more on that later. But I will throw a name out there, for the interested ones; Peter Weiss.

I can’t wait to get the whole record in my hands now, as this is just one of the many great artwork pieces that Costin has created for us on ‘To Drink From The Night Itself‘…”

01 – “Der Widerstand”
02 – “To Drink From The Night Itself”
03 – “A Stare Bound In Stone”
04 – “Palace Of Lepers”
05 – “Daggers Of Black Haze”

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte & Trivium’s Paolo Gregoletto Beef Via Twitter

All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte has fired back at Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto in a series of tweets and a YouTube video after Gregoletto reacted to Labonte‘s recent appearance on Infowars, in which Labonte argued against gun control.

Stick to this and not music @philthatremains

— Paolo Gregoletto (@TriviumPaolo) February 21, 2018

This incited some Twitter beefing, that included the following tweets:

I’m just happy Paolo has time to let us know how great he is.

— Phil (@philthatremains) February 22, 2018

… and also some shots were fired to other Twitter users hinting at All That Remains‘ Garth Brooks cover:

Wait till you hear our country cover, Joe! Maybe you’ll like us then ??????.

— Paolo Gregoletto (@TriviumPaolo) February 22, 2018

I don’t know. Go make a YouTube video about it and let me know.

— Paolo Gregoletto (@TriviumPaolo) February 22, 2018

Phil Labonte took Paolo Gregoletto‘s proposition to heart, uploading the below video on YouTube, stating:

“So last night, Paolo from Trivium decided that he wanted to let me know that he didn’t like us, or he didn’t like All That Remains. And so he goes and talks some smack about singing, talks some smack about how great their last tour was. And their last tour did great numbers—to everyone involved, congratulations.

You guys had a great tour; it’s something to be proud of. But Paolo, nobody went to see that tour because Paolo was there. Nobody cares. If you weren’t there and it was some other dude, that tour would have done the same thing. You’re the third most important guy in a four-man band that changes their fourth member every couple of years. Everyone knows Trivium is Matt [Heafy vocalist/guitarist].

So jumping at me talking smack? Ain’t nobody calling you in the middle of the night saying, ‘Come save my tour’ [referring to the times Labonte has filled in for Five Finger Death Punch and Killswitch Engage.] You didn’t write the hits for Trivium. You’ve been riding coattails.

So here you go, Paolo. You wanted me to make a YouTube video about it? Here it is.”
