Cripple Bastards Posts New Song “Crimine Contro L’immagine” Online

Italian grindcore legends Cripple Bastards celebrate 30 years of misanthropic extremity with their seventh full-length album, La Fine Cresce da Dentro (meaning: “The End Is Growing From Within”). The album is due out November 9th on CD/LP/Digital.

Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse.com here and digital downloads / streaming services here.

The track “Crimine Contro L’immagine” is available for streaming below.

Recorded at the legendary Fredman Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, Dark Tranquility), La Fine Cresce da Dentro is eighteen tracks of inconceivable speed and brutality surpassing even their previous work. Over three decades in, Cripple Bastards are showing no signs of slowing down and continue to destroy unsuspecting eardrums with hate-filled, grind punk chaos.

Grand Magus Begins Work On New Album, Posts Trailer Online

Swedish riff lords Grand Magus are currently working on the follow up to their highly acclaimed 2016 album Sword Songs. The band have already ensconced themselves at Sweetspot Studio in Sweden to kick off the recording process with producer Staffan Karlsson (Arch Enemy Firewind, Spiritual Beggars).

Singer/guitar player JB states:

“The Magus is back in the studio to record the ninth album. It’s been a very special process this time. We decided to let go of the current philosophy to record drums first and then bass and then guitar etc. This time we met up, jammed and created together during the last six months with the goal to record basic tracks live. That basically means the thing we do every time we play live. When we do that, we play together. It’s music after all, not a science project. This led us to use the studio you see in the video. We recorded take by take (usually first takes, haha) until the groove, feel and violence was right. Now we will start with the overdubs, solos and vocals. We are chuffed and we think you will be too. Metal victory!”

Hamferð releases live video of “Stygd”

– September 27th, 2018 –

Set to play shows in Europe next week!

Photo credit: Beinta a Torkilsheyggi

Faroese doomsters Hamferð have released a live recorded video of “Stygd”, the 2nd track from their new album, Támsins likam, released on Metal Blade earlier this year. The song is part of the recorded album release show on March 17th, 2018 at the old Sjonleikarahusið theater in Torshavn, Faroe Islands. To watch the clip, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=pLtwVGB7f60

Támsins likam was played in its entirety, as well as a selection of older songs, including “Odn” – the band’s very first song, which, although being a live staple, was never released.

Singer Jon Aldara comments: “This concert was a meticulous production in regards to performance, sound and lighting, and we felt it was the perfect opportunity to record it properly. It’s a great feeling to have a live recording of Hamferð that does not come from an iPhone or from a festival production that we had little to no control over. We took everything in our own hands and went the whole nine yards with a brilliant crew, well-considered stage design and all the high-end equipment we could get our hands on. Luckily, I really think it shows!”

Hamferð will play a selection of shows in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands in October:
Oct. 2 – Stuttgart, Germany – Club Zentral (w. Egonaut)
Oct. 3 – Leipzig, Germany – Hellraiser (w. Egonaut)
Oct. 4 – Hamburg, Germany – Bambi Galore (w. Egonaut)
Oct. 5 – Paderborn, Germany – Metal Inferno Festival
Oct. 6 – Saint Georges, Belgium – From Dusk til Doom 4
Oct. 7 – Tilburg, Netherlands – Little Devil

Additionally, Hamferð will head out on a tour of Scandinavia in December, notably playing Sweden for the first time in their 10-year long career. See below for dates:

Helloween Announces New Studio Album And Live CD/DVD Package

German power metal legends Helloween has announced that they will be releasing a live CD/DVD package of their recent “Pumpkins United” tour next year, with a new studio album to follow in 2020. An update from the group reads thusly:

“A very special summer season, not only due to the tropical heat, is slowly coming to an end: Festivals have been rocked so hard that we would’ve been sweating even if mercury hadn’t been on a permanent high. Among the massive Pumpkins United World Tour’s open air highlights were, of course, the headline slots at Wacken, Barcelona’s Rock Fest and Masters of Rock – but also the mega gigs with Iron Maiden at Sweden Rock Festival and Florence’s Firenze Rocks in June were definitely shows we’ll remember for all eternity. Thanks to everyone who has been with us until now!

“Fortunately the tour is by no means over, and dates in the US and Canada are next on the schedule – there will also be, due to the tremendous demand, additional dates in Latin America to follow: And as first class support, no other than Kreator and Arch Enemy will be firing up the stages for the Pumpkins! Final shows with the full United cast will take place at the end of 2018 with a right royal farewell blast: In Hamburg, right where all the madness started in 1984, Pumpkins United will burn down the house with the tour’s last show in the legendary Sporthalle on December 22nd.

“For those, who mysteriously missed the tour – but also for everyone, who has been a part of it and would love to revisit those unique nights, the boys have recorded the very best moments. Goose bump inducing footage of the Pumpkins United world tour, which has been reveled as “tour of the year” by fans and press everywhere, will be released as a live CD as well as on DVD and Blu-ray at the beginning of 2019, so that those nights can be celebrated over and over without even having to leave the sofa.

“As we are reeling from Wacken and preparing for the upcoming show in Bamberg, those maniacs are already launching the next sensation: For starters, Nuclear Blast has insisted to keep the band on their roster for a few more years, and – double bass drum roll – there will be a brand-new studio album with Kiske and Hansen. With the band’s songwriting trio of Weikath, Hansen and Deris retreating to the studio together with these two exceptional singers in 2019, it’s clear that the album scheduled for 2020 will be no less than epic.”
