Metal Blade Records is proud to welcome Fractal Universe to its worldwide roster! Founded in 2014, Fractal Universe is a progressive death metal band from Nancy, France. They released their first EP, Boundaries of Reality, in February 2015, and played numerous shows in support of it, opening for bands such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Exodus, Monuments, and many more. With the release of their first full-length, Engram of Decline, in April 2017 via Kolony Records, Fractal Universe received even more exposure in international press (Terrorizer, Rock Tribune, Rock Hard, etc.), before touring throughout Europe and appearing at various festivals. Soon after, Metal Blade Records offered the band a worldwide deal.

Fractal Universe comments: “We’re thrilled to announce our collaboration with Metal Blade Records for the release of our upcoming album. The label has put out a countless amount of great albums over the years, that shaped our tastes in metal and contributed to making us the musicians we are today. Signing to them has been one of our main objectives since we started the band, and is really a dream come true. We couldn’t be more excited about the months to come, and we can’t wait to share the first tracks of the album with you!”

Fractal Universe‘s sophomore album – and Metal Blade Records debut – is entitled Rhizomes of Insanity. Set to be released in spring 2019, Rhizomes of Insanity was recorded between May and July 2018, with drums recorded at Ghost City Recordings with Nikita Kamprad, and mixing and mastering handled once again by the band’s long-time engineer Flavien Morel of Boundless Productions Studios. Stay tuned for more news about the album coming soon!

Dutch symphonic heavyweights Epica announce a select number of exclusive shows in support of the 10th anniversary of their album Design Your Universe. The album until today holds a special place in the hearts of their fans and includes fan-favorites as “Kingdom Of Heaven” and “Design Your Universe”.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Design Your Universe the band will return to a number of venues they played while touring on the album back in 2009/2010 which most likely will sell out far in advance.

Simone Simons comments: “After all those years, Design Your Universe remains one of my all-time favorite Epica albums. I know that the message behind the title song also resonates with a lot our fans because there are so many Design Your Universe related tattoos. The title track and ‘Unleashed’ are songs that I hold very dear and the memories we made in that time of our career. I am looking forward to go back in time with you all while we play more songs from our Design Your Universe album.”

Mark Jansen adds” “Design Your Universe is very dear to me, it’s an album that was written during a very inspiring time. The title track shows us that we can we all create our destiny and it’s still one of my favorite tracks to play live. Also, quite a few other songs of the album deserve to be played again and we will! Our set is gonna be filled with DYU songs so don’t miss one of these opportunities.”

Bad Wolves Premiere New Music Video For “No Masters” – Recruit Fill-In Singers At Birmingham, UK Show

Bad Wolves premiere a new official music video for their track “No Masters” which was directed by Randy Edwards.

Check it out below:

In other news, the group had to recruit Stars from Bang Bang Romeo and Austin Dickinson of As Lions to fill in for their singer Tommy Vext during ltheir October 04th Birmingham, UK show of their current European/UK tour with Three Days Grace.

Vext was hospitalized this week two days into the tour for a severe bronchial infection. Comments Vext on that matter:

“Life is unpredictable. If anyone knows this, it’s me. More often than not, the universe throws a wrench in the best laid plans.

This is our first trip to play shows in Europe as a band. Nothing could prepare us for the excitement and gratitude we felt for the opportunity to come over and play for the UK and EU fans who have waited so long to see us. So imagine my disappointment when a few days ago I began feeling ill to the point I knew something was wrong enough that I had to seek medical treatment – and to accept the doctors’ advice that I not play the show in Birmingham.

But as the old adage goes, “the show must go on” and luckily I have a lot of people in my life who love and support me and my band. On a moment’s notice, Stars from the Doncaster band Bang Bang Romeo and Austin Dickinson from London based As Lions agreed to learn the set list in under 24 hours, travel to Birmingham and play the show for no money, just because they believe in us and because they know we would do the same for them. I certainly understand this sentiment. I had to fill in as the vocalist for Five Finger Death Punch on several occasions.

It is not easy to sit the Birmingham show out. But this is bigger than just me. It’s about the fans and about our commitment to Three Days Grace. As I lie here, wishing I were feeling better, those thoughts of pity are overshadowed completely by my sense of wonder at the kindness and generosity of the human spirit and the power of music to bring people together. Thank you for all the support – I’ll be back asap, in bigger, better fighting shape. I would personally like to thank the NHS and all the doctors and nurses who assisted me for their amazing service.”

See below for some footage of the band playing with Dickinson on vocals during the aforementioned show. Dickinson himself commented:

“When Tommy called me I thought he was a joking but as it turns he needed a brother to lend a hand. So here we are doing for Tommy what he’s done for many others. He owes me now and I will wait until I get ill in Siberia to ask him to return the favour.”

Remaining dates for the tour are as follows:

10/05 Bristol, UK – St. Philips Gate
10/07 London, UK – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
10/08 Glasgow, UK – SWG3
