Mark “Barney” Greenway: No New Napalm Death Album Before Late 2018

Napalm Death frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway was recently interviewed by Australia’s “Sticks For Stones”. Questioned about a recent post on the band’s Facebook page revealing they were back at Parlour Studios in Kettering, Northamptonshire, England recording their next album, Greenway clarifies:

“This is one of the, I say, problems in small letters with social media sometimes. As soon as you put a post like that, people just kind of think – understandably so – that you’ve got a bunch of new songs ready to go. Well, we haven’t. It’s very preliminary stages. I mean, basically, we’re at the point where Shane went into the studio with Danny and basically laid a load of stuff down that he’d been thinking of doing. So there may be some material that never sees the light of day. I just don’t know, ’cause I haven’t actually heard it yet. I’ve got the stuff, but I haven’t actually sat down and listened to it yet. So there’s nothing approaching any complete songs. And the reality is that it won’t even surface probably till later next year, I would have thought. So it’s gonna be a while yet.”

Unlost Splits With Vocalist Mindaugas Paukstys

Alternative metal act Unlost has issued the following announcement about splitting with the band’s vocalist:

“After a year and a half of intensive rehearsing, gigging and recording we are parting ways with our lead singer Mindaugas Paukstys. We wholeheartedly thank Mindaugas for his dedication (two hour commute to the rehearsals and two hours back home is pretty tough) and his creative input into our music. Best of luck to you, buddy!

“At the same time we are reiterating that Unlost is marching on. We are now intensively auditioning singers, for our debut album is still in the making and it will be finished with a new voice.

“We thank you for your support and patience and be assured you will not be disappointed when the album – which we named ‘The Weightless Wisdom’ – finally sees the light of day!”

Leash Eye Unveils New Album Details, Streams New Track "Trucker Song"

Polish stoner/rock metal band Leash Eye will release the sophomore album “V.I.D.I.” on November 14, 2011 (EU) and January 10, 2012 (North America) through Metal Mind Productions. In addition, the band is streaming the new track “Trucker Song” (heard below).

According the the Metal Mind Production press release: “Leash Eye was founded by three friends, playing for their own enjoyment. As their musical goal, the band decided to follow the same road as the one chosen by Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Kyuss, Tool, Illusion, and Spiritual Beggars. In March 1999, the band recorded 5 songs, which were featured on their promo CD. The change of the lead singer in 2003 triggered also a change of their style – these days Leash Eye stands for melodious hard rock of the 70’s, accompanied by heavy, modern sounds and classic vocals. In Autumn 2009, Leash Eye’s debut album “V.E.N.I”, featuring guest appearance of Riverside’s Michal Lapaj on the Hammond organ, sees the light of day. The album met with the acclaim of both the critics and the listeners. The year 2010 is marked by intense work on new songs, which are to be included on the band’s new full-length album. Ultimately, 10 out of 13 compositions are chosen and, in the beginning of 2011, the band enter Sound Division Studio in Warsaw to record their 2nd album “V.I.D.I.”, with Behemoth’s Orion as the producer and Vesania’s Heinrich as sound engineer.”

The track listing for “V.I.D.I.” is as follows:

Tracklist:

1. Deathproof (Charger vs Challenger)
2. One Time, Two Times
3. Headin’ For Disaster
4. Open Up, Chris
5. Her Rose’s Flavour
6. Trucker Song
7. The Road
8. The Streets Of Will
9. The Warmth
10. F.H.T.W.
