Alice Cooper Announces UK Tour Dates With The Stranglers

Shock rock icon Alice Cooper has announced that he will embark on a headlining tour of the United Kingdom this October, where he will be joined by punk/new wave veterans, The Stranglers. The tour, which is being called, “Ol’ Black Is Eyes Is Back,” will stretch across seven dates and will also include support from MC50, the fiftieth anniversary celebration of the MC5.

Speaking to the NME, Cooper stated: “The great thing about the tour coming to the UK is we’ve done this last show for the last two and a half years so we’re ready to retire this show. The next show, all the elements are out there – it’s going to be a pure Alice Cooper show. It’s going to have all the stuff that everybody wants to see and new stuff and for the songs, we dip into a bunch of albums that people probably are not going to expect us to go to. So it’s going to be a total Alice extravaganza.”

The tour dates are as follows:

October 4 – Manchester Arena – Manchester, England
October 5 – The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) – Aberdeen, Scotland
October 7 – First Direct Arena – Leeds, England
October 8 – Brighton Centre – Brighton, England
October 10 – The O2 – London, England
October 11 – Resorts World Arena – Birmingham, England
October 12 – Motorpoint Arena Cardiff – Cardiff, Wales

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard release video for 3rd single, “Fall of an Empire”

– 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!”

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard release video for 2nd single, “Epitaph”

– August 9th, 2018 –

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard have just finished working on their 2nd video clip in support of their upcoming new album, Malady X – due out October 26th via Metal Blade Records. Head over to youtube.com/watch?v=qTV5W7u0EXY to check out the video for “Epitaph”!

Bandleader Dom R. Crey comments about “Epitaph”: “The first single ‘Malady X’ is out for three weeks now and we are super happy about all the amazing feedback. The time has come to unleash the second single and music video, this time in 4k quality! ‘Epitaph’ is a very special song for me. Based on the concept of constant struggle in a world where all of us need to find their places. Sometimes this can be tough and very often some of us have the feeling of not being part of this world – or do not even want to be part. Song-wise ‘Epitaph’ is one of my favorite tracks on this album. But before I tell too much I would rather recommend you to check out the video and song.”

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard announce new album, ‘Malady X’

– August 9th, 2018 –

Launch title track as first single

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard from Germany have finished the recordings for their new album Malady X and are proud to present the first song to the masses! Head over to metalblade.com/nothgard to check out the stunning video for the title track “Malady X” – where the record is also available for pre-order in the following formats:


–ltd. 1st ed. Digipak-CD
–box set (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–180g black vinyl
–dead gold marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–light grey marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–red/black marbled vinyl (EMP exclusive – limited to 120 copies)
–clear/black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 100 copies)

Bandleader Dom R. Crey states: “With ‘Malady X‘, we have created an album that is both dark and serious, but on the other hand rife with catchy melodies – while not compromising our individual sound at all, on the contrary: I am sure we have defined the Nothgard-style more clearly than ever on this album. This is why we are really happy to present our first new material to you in the shape of a music video!”

The clip for “Malady X” was recorded in one take, meaning without interruptions and based on a specific choreography to make an authentic impression. The result is nothing less than breathtaking!

Dom R. Crey adds: “Of course, ‘Malady X‘ takes on an important role because it’s the title track. It represents everything that we, deep inside, find disturbing about society and current ways of thinking. We consciously address it in the lyrics – no-go’s and issues in daily life which should actually be perceived as such, but instead, we have lost awareness of them. Rather than standing in for our convictions, we choose to live according to false values.”

Nothgard has recorded Malady X at Def-Creation and & Southern Deathcult studios and called the renowned Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy, Kreator, Opeth, etc.) for mastering duties. The result is an album full of epic melodic death metal anthems!
