– October 19th, 2018 –

Epic Melodic Death Metallers Nothgard have just released their third video clip in support of their upcoming new album, Malady X, which is due out next Friday (Oct. 26th)! Head over to youtu.be/LIE8UWi7oV8 to watch the video for “Fall Of An Empire”!

Bandleader Dom R. Crey comments about “Fall Of An Empire”: “Finally the time has come and we can share the third single with you. ‘Fall Of An Empire’ was a real challenge for us, but it was worth it. We flew specially to Rome and shot there in an absolutely brilliant location, a sulfur desert, and simply wanted to breathe life into the intention of the lyrics and to do justice to them. ‘Fall Of An Empire’ is symbolic of many things that concern us. Packed in a thriller-like story with great actors, a video you should not miss out on!”

Artillery releases second single, “Crossroads to Conspiracy”, from new album, ‘The Face of Fear’

– October 17th, 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 the 2nd single taken off the album – “Crossroads To Conspiracy” – which can be heard here: youtube.com/watch?v=spok2IpJXhE

Guitarist Michael Stutzer comments: “‘Crossroads To Conspiracy’ was one of the very last songs we crafted, and it’s a hard-hitting melodic thrash metal song with the typical Artillery riffing. The lyrics are about how you have been cursed by the wrong choices you’ve made. The wrongdoings of others that you used to condemn others for have been committed by yourself.”

The Face Of Fear is the band’s 9th studio album and the third with the current line-up. To hear the previous single, “The Face Of Fear”, 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!”

Tomorrow (September 28th), Revocation will release their new full-length, The Outer Ones, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of The Outer Ones, Noisey.Vice.com is streaming the record in full now at: noisey.vice.com – alongside an exclusive interview with vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson!

Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Queensryche, Whitechapel, etc.), The Outer Ones sees Revocation pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever. “I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date,” states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. “Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.” Moving away from the societal and historical themes that informed 2016′s Great is Our Sin, this time Davidson has immersed himself in the fantastic, evoking one of the great writers of the sci-fi/horror genre. “The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”

Psychostick Announces “The Socks, Sandals & PJ Pants Tour” North American Tour Dates

The kings of comedy rock Psychostick are hitting the road this coming October and November for “The Socks, Sandals & PJ Pants Tour” with Downtown Brown and Danimal Cannon (dates listed below) in support of their new album “DO”.

This latest full length from Psychostick was a surprise album that the laugh masters revealed to the world this past July during a live fan engagement webcast on Twitch (watch the video here). The album was four years in the making to follow Psychostick’s extremely fan loved “IV: Revenge of The Vengeance” and continues the band’s genius of blending comedy, metal, heavy rock and the occasional spoof cover.

“DO” debut #1 on Billboard’s Comedy Albums chart along with ranking at #14 for Hard Rock Album, #39 for Rock Album, #39 for Independent Albums and #9 for Heatseekers Albums for the week of August 11th.

The band comments:

“Whelp, here it is! “Do.” This whole “surprise, nerd! New album!” experiment was extremely fun, and we’re beyond appreciative of your patience and understanding. We agree with you – four years is way too long. We hope to fix that despite what Murph says!

“Do” is our first 100% independent, label-free release since 2003! Our production process is still completely internal, but this time all profits go straight to Psychostick. This is extremely huge for us and we can’t thank you enough.

2018 marked the fifteenth anniversary of our first album, and we’re beyond excited that we’re still kickin’, making globs upon globs of comedy metal. We aim to do this until they kick us out of the old folks’ home or off of Mars. That’s right. We’re goin’ to Mars, damnit.”

The tour dates are as follows:

Oct 24 – St. Louis, MO – Fubar *
Oct 25 – Omaha, NE – Lookout Lounge *
Oct 26 – Colorado Springs, CO – Sunshine Studios
Oct 27 – Denver, CO – The Roxy Theater
Oct 28 – Salt Lake City, UT – Metro Music Hall
Oct 30 – Boise, ID – The Shredder
Oct 31 – Seattle, WA – El Corazon
Nov 1 – Portland, OR – Paris Theatre
Nov 2 – Placerville, CA – PJ’s Roadhouse #
Nov 3 – Cupertino, CA – The X Bar #
Nov 4 – Fullerton, CA – The Slide Bar #
Nov 6 – Fresno, CA – Full Circle Brewery #
Nov 7 – San Diego – Brick By Brick #
Nov 8 – Mesa, AZ – Club Red #
Nov 12 – Merriam, KS – Aftershock *#

*Does not include Downtown Brown
# Does not include Danimal Cannon

Earlier this year, Psychostick sat down with Metal Underground to discuss their new album, as well as other projects and facts about the band. You can check it out below.

Artillery Reveals New Album, “The Face Of Fear” Details, Posts Music Video Online

November 16th will see Artillery release their new album, “The Face Of Fear” – which is the successor to 2016’s “Penalty By Perception.” “The Face Of Fear” is the band’s 9th studio album, and the third with the current lineup. For a preview of the record, a video for the title track can be viewed below.

“The Face Of Fear” can 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.”

3. New Rage
