Within Temptation Posts New Lyric Video “In Vain” Online

Dutch symphonic metal outfit Within Temptation has posted a new lyric video online for the song, “In Vain.” You can check it out below. “In Vain” appears on the band’s new album, “Resist,” which will be released on February 1st through Spinefarm/Universal Music.

“Resist is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for Resist, Within Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore,” the band stated.

“With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face – a very dark one,” said singer Sharon den Adel. “Sometimes, it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like and roughen it up as much as we could, resulting in a surprisingly new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. Resist is our take on metal in a new way: to give modern music its rebellious edge.”

Spirits Of Fire Featuring Ripper Owens To Release Debut Album In February, Posts New Video Online

Frontiers Music Srl is known for building new bands/projects featuring musicians of outstanding quality and who come from unique backgrounds. After an intense brainstorming session, a dream team of renowned metal musicians including Tim “Ripper” Owens (ex-Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Chris Caffery (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Steve DiGiorgio (Testament, Death, etc.) and Mark Zonder (ex-Fates Warning, Warlord) was born and put together under the direction of renowned LA-based producer Roy Z. (Bruce Dickinson, Halford, Tribe Of Gypsies).

Called Spirits Of Fire (after the title of one of their songs), the band has completed work on their debut album which is set for release on February 22nd via Frontiers Music Srl. The music can best be described as “classic Priest meets Savatage”. Today, Spirits Of Fire release their first video and single, “Light Speed Marching”. Find the video below.

The album will be available on CD, Red Color Vinyl, Standard Black Vinyl, Collector’s Box (CD + T-Shirt, Size L), and Digital formats. Pre-order “Spirits Of Fire” on CD/LP/Digital and stream the singles here.

North American fans can get limited edition, exclusive red color vinyl & collector’s box (feat. CD + T-Shirt – Size L only) here. These are very limited and this is the only retailer in North America carrying these items. European fan can get the same items here.

Guitarist Chris Caffery on his influences for the record and working with Roy Z: “My influences for writing on this record were the bands that we were and are still in! I wanted to write songs that [Judas] Priest, Savatage, Testament, and Fates Warning fans would like. But, I wanted them to have a personality of their own as well. To give it a vibe that was Spirits Of Fire! I grew up listening to Judas Priest and spent 30 plus years working with Jon Oliva and Paul O’Neill with Savatage and TSO. Many years playing Criss’ music. These influences for me came naturally! Especially because I’m a fan of all of our bands!

“This was the first time that I ever worked with Roy and it was so much fun. I have been a huge fan of his work for a long time. He’s written music, played on, and produced some of my favorite metal albums ever. He had a difficult job bringing this all together and I can’t think of anyone that would have been a better producer and co-worker for this album!”

“I always just sing to the song, whatever I feel it should be. It’s like a character thing! I like layers! This music is really perfect for me and in my natural wheel house. I like to sing all over the place and change it up and this all happens on this album. This is just the start of an amazing band, I mean sky is the limit and I actually can’t wait to record the next album, because this one is so great and perfect,” says vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens.

Drummer Mark Zonder adds about his playing and writing process, “I am the kind of player that plays what I think fits best with the music. With Spirits Of Fire, the music was more aggressive and hard hitting which I really liked. Again, I tried to be very mindful of the song and the vocals, but tried to add parts that were interesting and creative for the listener.”

Tracklisting:

1. Light Speed Marching
2. Temple Of The Soul
3. All Comes Together
4. Spirits Of Fire
5. It’s Everywhere
6. A Game

Twitching Tongues releases new digital album, ‘Disharmony Zero’, today

– October 30th, 2018 –

Today (October 30th), Twitching Tongues has released a new digital album, Disharmony Zero, which includes two previously unreleased demos: “Insatiable Sin Zero” and “Asylum Ave Zero”. Recorded, mixed and mastered at The Pit in Van Nuys, CA by Taylor Young in March 2015, this recording features the band’s Colin Young on vocals and drums, and Taylor Young on guitar, bass, and vocals. The studio versions of the two tracks appeared on 2015′s Disharmony.

Colin Young comments: “As some fuckin’ guy once said, always trust your first instinct…
Here are two songs that truly represent that, as we believe the final studio versions of both ‘Insatiable Sin’ and ‘Asylum Avenue’ have truly never measured up to these respective recordings, and we decided, truly just because we fuckin’ can, that we wanted to let people hear the final demo sessions for two of our favorite songs on ‘Disharmony‘. While the whole record might be misunderstood to a great many, these two versions of these two songs, in particular, better capture the spirit of what we had in mind those few years ago. Kiss my ass and then the rest of our ass. Enjoy.”

Disharmony Zero track-listing
1. Insatiable Sin Zero
2. Asylum Ave Zero

Twitching Tongues released their fourth full-length, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, earlier this year via Metal Blade Records. The album’s title was drawn from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer – “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life” – and it reflects the band’s mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors. With “failure” as a core theme driving Colin Young’s lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate to speak his mind. Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. With interconnected parts, musical references and callbacks in each song, everything is tied together in a manner unlike any of their previous releases. At the same time, while maintaining the same levels of hardness and aggression that has characterized their later work, it features much more immediate and memorable melodies, which evoke the sound of In Love There Is No Law yet at the same time feel fresh and new.
