Artillery releases video for third single, “Pain”

– November 8th, 2018 –

November 16th sees Artillery release their new album, The Face Of Fear – which is the successor to 2016′s Penalty By Perception. The Danes have now launched a video for the 3rd single taken off the album – “Pain” – which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/HBtQsvZyquM

Guitarist Michael Stutzer comments: “The story behind ‘Pain’ is a true story, about an alcoholic who was never listening to his friends or family when they tried to make him stop and quit drinking. And when he got to the point where he realized himself, he had to stop – it was too late and there was no way out anymore. The video for ‘Pain’ was recorded in Kolding and Randers by Morten Madsen (MSM production), who also directed our previous videos for ‘Legions’ and ‘Live by the Scythe’.”

The Face Of Fear is the band’s 9th studio album and the third with the current line-up. To hear the previous singles, “The Face Of Fear” and “Crossroads To Conspiracy”, please visit: metalblade.com/artillery – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–ltd. Digipak-CD with 2 exclusive bonus tracks
–180 g black vinyl
–opaque grey blue marbeld vinyl (ltd. 300 – EU-exclusive)
–golden yellow blue marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 – EU-exclusive)
–blue green / white splattered vinyl (ltd. 100 – EMP-exclusive)
–blue/black marbled vinyl (ltd. 300 – US-exclusive)

The lyrics are Artillery as you know them, with subjects concerning the destruction of mankind, double standards, abuse and the looming worst-case scenarios. The Face Of Fear was recorded with long-time producer Soren Andersen at Medley Studios. It’s Soren’s fifth time at the helm, and once again he manages to deliver a monster production. Soren comments: “Pure and raw! Some of the material of this album was originally written in the early 80′s, and that inspired us to go old school this time. Not too many layers, just classic Artillery thrash metal…And Bastholm is better than ever on this one. This is a no-filler album, created together with the band. I’m really proud of the final result and I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I do!”

Artillery comments about the video for “The Face Of Fear”: “Most of the scenes for the video were shot at Amager strand park right outside of Copenhagen. And the live scenes go back to when the band visited Japan and played at the Thrash Dominations together with Exodus, Voivod and Sanctuary. The video was shot by the band’s good friend Terkel Christensen, who also did the video ‘When The Magic is Gone’, from the last album, ‘Penalty By Perception‘. The song is about dealing the end of man by himself. We create our own phobia about the destruction of the world, but remain disrespectful to the globe.”

English NWOBHM legends Satan release new 7-Inch single

– May 22nd, 2018 –

On July 6th, Metal Blade Records will release The Doomsday Clock 7″ single on vinyl as well as digital. The b-side features another new track, “Catacombs”, exclusively to this 7″. Check out a teaser of The Doomsday Clock at this location: youtube.com/watch?v=47lA7gi_DBE

Pre-order your copies now at either EMP or eBay in the following formats:


–Black vinyl (limited to 400 copies)
–Transparent red vinyl (limited to 200 copies)
–White vinyl (limited to 100 copies; EMP exclusive)
–Blue vinyl (limited to 150 copies; Hell’s Headbangers exclusive)
–Clear vinyl (limited to 150 copies; High Roller exclusive)

Bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83′s seminal Court In the Act and ’87′s Suspended Sentence, Satan make it abundantly clear with their upcoming new album that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015′s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Having reunited in 2012 and returned to touring duty, Satan – comprised of six-stringers Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey, bassist Graeme English, drummer Sean Taylor and vocalist Brian Ross – once more proved their collective mettle with 2013′s Life Sentence and follow-up Atom By Atom, both records critically acclaimed and maintaining the high standards of their earlier releases. With such a powerful collection in their hands, the band was unsurprisingly eager to take it on the road, and they once again had successful tours and festival runs in Europe, North America and South America, culminating with a slot opening for Pentagram in Helsinki, which Tippins counts as a true honor.

Satan will unleash their latest batch of classic heavy metal songs in the second half of 2018. Be prepared for one of the best metal albums of the year and stay tuned for more information about it!

Brian Ross – Vocals
Russ Tippins – Guitars

Graeme English – Bass

Armored Saint plot first ever South American tour!

– February 5th, 2018 –

Armored Saint will be heading down to South America for the first time ever! The shows are scheduled for June and include performances in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Chile, and Colombia. The band is currently at work on a set list full of songs from throughout their entire catalog – it’s an event not to miss for South American fans!

Vocalist John Bush comments: “Finally!! Armored Saint brings its soulful heavy rock to the passionate continent of South America. I went to South America twice with Anthrax and can easily say that those were some of the best shows I did in my life. The rabid fans of places like Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile are die hards of music. Their enthusiasm is unprecedented. Also looking forward to going to Colombia for the first time. Can’t wait!! The Saint‘s Latin roots should be in full force. It’s a perfect match.”

Bassist Joey Vera adds: “After 35 long years we’re finally going to tour in South America. The long wait was bitter, but the experience playing for you all will be oh so sweet. See you soon.”

Armored Saint tour dates
June 2 – Buenos Aires, AR @ Uniclub
June 3 – Sao Paulo, BR @ Fabrique Club
June 5 – Lima, PE @ Discoteca Cocos
June 7 – Santiago, CL @ La Batuta
June 8 – Bogota, CO @ TBC

Having toured with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, The Scorpions, and many other artists since their inception in the early 80s, Armored Saint has always been a highly regarded live act – not only in their hometown of Los Angeles, but also around the world. The only official release to capture this, however, is 1989′s live album, Saints Will Conquer – until now, with Carpe Noctum, which was recorded at the band’s 2015 Wacken festival set, as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany. To preview and purchase Carpe Noctum, please visit: metalblade.com/armoredsaint

Fleshgod Apocalypse Singer Tommaso Riccardi Quits Band – New Line-Up Revealed

Fleshgod Apocalypse announces the departure of vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi from its ranks. The group issues the below statement on the matter:

“Hello friends,

there’s no easy way to say this, so we’ll go straight to the point:

about a couple of months ago, our singer Tommaso left the band for personal reasons. Our separation wasn’t painless, but everybody thought this was the best solution.

Therefore we sat down and tried to figure out all possible scenarios for a band that suddenly loses its frontman. The will to go on and continue this journey was stronger than everything else.

Since the message of Fleshgod Apocalypse goes beyond music itself, we couldn’t let someone who wasn’t there since the beginning be its spokesman.

So the only way to go on was to take a look back at our roots: we decided that Francesco Paoli, our drummer, songwriter, founder and first frontman of the band, was the natural choice for this delicate and also challenging position.

Our mastermind has finally taken back his originary role as lead vocalist and guitarist.

From now on, besides our precious soprano singer Veronica Bordacchini, we’ll have the honour to share the stage with the Italian metal legend David Folchitto (Stormlord, Prophilax) on drums together with the phenomenal Fabio Bartoletti (Deceptionist) on lead guitar. Fleshgod Apocalypse are more focused and determined than ever.

Expect new epic live experiences and, most likely, the darkest and heaviest Fleshgod Apocalypse album that we’ve ever written. We can’t wait to start this new, exciting chapter of our career.

Our friends in South America will be the first ones to witness the new course of the band, with Francesco as our frontman. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Fleshgod Apocalypse“
