Usurper Premiere New Song & Lyric Video ‘Lords Of The Permafrost’ Title Track

Chicago metal outfit Usurper premiere a lyric video for the title track of its forthcoming record, “Lords Of The Permafrost”. The album will be out in stores in March through Soulseller Records.

Comment the band:

“After a 14-year hiatus, Usurper are proud to return with our sixth full-length album entitled ‘Lords Of The Permafrost’. Back when we formed in 1993, we had the goal to create heavy, memorable songs with the anthemic quality of traditional heavy metal, combined with the heaviness of death metal, the fury of thrash metal, the atmosphere of black metal and the straight-forward, ass-kicking of ’70s hard rock… 25 years later, we feel we have stayed true to our original objective and have recorded the quintessential Usurper album. Lyrically, these songs explore topics such as monster folklore, the paranormal and other obscure tales, all while being delivered with a lethal dose of heavy metal bravado. Usurper never have, and never will chase trends. We have only returned to bring our next chapter of metal to the worldwide warriors of iron and rust, and kick maximum ass!”

Alice Cooper To Release New Live Album, “A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper”

Following the release of the 2017 studio album “Paranormal,” which was the best chart-performing album by Alice Cooper in decades, the American rock legend took his exciting live show all over the world, accompanied by “the best band he has ever had.”

After an entire year spent on the road, the Paranormal Tour ended in Paris on December 7th, 2017 at the world renowned Olympia, a theatre that is iconic in the truest sense of the word.

The album captures a rock ‘n’ roll show at its peak and is one of the best live releases by Alice Cooper, featuring his longtime band guitarists Nita Strauss, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, bassist Chuck Garric, and drummer Glen Sobel in front of an excited audience.
