Sins Of The Damned Posts New Song “Take The Weapons” Online

Shadow Kingdom Records has set May 3rd as the international release date for Sins Of The Damned’s debut album, Striking The Bell Of Death, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Formed in 2013 in the city of Santiago, Sins Of The Damned have become a cult institution in their homeland of Chile, itself a hotbed of heavy metal mania. The band self-released their first couple of demos, totally DIY but 100% professional, and prodigiously perfected their craft with subsequent short-length releases every year since. And now, at last arrives the full distillation of Sins Of The Damned’s eternal, unyielding aesthetic: the full-length Striking The Bell Of Death!

For a debut album, Striking The Bell Of Death does everything it should: consolidate all of Sins Of The Damned’s strengths, unveil previously hinted-at elements, and deliver them in a powerful production. The beauty (or is that ugliness?) of Sins Of The Damned is that the quartet maintain such a classic sound, drinking deeply of metal’s rich history, and yet exude a freshness of approach that results in something legitimately, respectably modern. Striking The Bell Of Death is full, furious proof of that, exhibiting absolutely masterful songwriting – hooks, energy, and passion – while roughening it up in a manner almost blackened (but not too much!). As such, the record comes highly recommended to maniacs of classic Razor, Whiplash, Exciter, and Deathrow (Germany) as well as current torchbearers like Desaster, Gospel Of The Horns, Deathhammer, and Italy’s Barbarian.

Hark! Do you hear that sound? It’s Sins Of The Damned – Striking The Bell Of Death. The first tolling bell of doom can be heard with the new track “Take The Weapons”.

Manowar Guitarist Karl Logan To Miss Upcoming Tour After Arrest

Following the news reported yesterday that Manowar guitarist Karl Logan was arrested and charged with six counts of third degree exploitation of a minor, Manowar’s management has posted a statement online confirming that the guitarist will not be taking part in the band’s upcoming tour. Magic Circle Entertainment stated:

“With regard to Karl Logan’s arrest and the charges against him: Due to the fact that Karl and his attorneys are dealing with these issues, he will not perform with Manowar. The new album and upcoming tour will not be affected.”

There has been no word yet on who will replace Logan on the upcoming tour dates and potentially the recording of the next album, but former guitarist David Shankle posted a lengthy statement on Facebook claiming he would be delighted to return to the fold:

“After thinking a lot, I consider appropriate to put together some words about the unfortunate events that have happened recently with Karl, which are of public knowledge and I will not repeat here, I just want to emphasize that I believe in the justice of my beloved country and I am sure that the truth will come to light very soon. Meanwhile, I want to thank you all for the innumerable messages I am receiving, for that reason, as I said before, I consider important to say a few words…

“For those who do not know, I joined Manowar back in 1988 after overcoming a casting from around 150 guitar players, I can proudly tell you that I was present during the mix of the iconic Kings Of Metal and I had the privilege of doing the tour to present the album. As everyone knows, I did not intervened in the composition of such a great album.

“Situation that changed on the double platinum awared “The Triumph Of Steel”, where I composed approximately half of the material, I always thought about the sequel to that album, both me and all the fans always imagined what the second part would be like … well. ..the truth is that the second part is already composed and is now being recorded together with my brothers of FEANOR, along with them, I have forged 10 songs of roaring steel, including THE ODYSSEY in 7 parts, an epic song like all of you expected and waited for so long…

“Well, the wait is over !!! get ready to listen to how Achilles should have evolved, Ride The Dragon, Master Of The Wind … Now I can show you and, in fact, I will show you how was the continuation of those songs that I kept for many years. in my head.

“Today, as you can imagine, I am full of duties and responsibilities, but it is also true that I am part of the Manowar family, I always had the best relationship with Joey, Eric and all the other guys that I consider nothing less but brothers, so if Duty calls my door, I will be happy to be present my weapons once again. As always I will give the best of me, 100%, as I did in Manowar and as I currently do in FEANOR, with whom I will do an extensive tour of South America in November.

“Finally, thanks once again for so much love and for so many beautiful words, I know that many of you want me back in Manowar, but the reality is that I am very excited about the record that we ended up with FEANOR and that I know. I’M SURE, all of you will enjoy greatly. I do not know what destiny has for me, I can only assure you that THE SHRED DEMON is more active than ever and very soon we will see each other again on the tour and they will be able to listen to the tremendous new songs that I have. for all of you. I love you all.”

GWAR Announces North American Fall Tour

– August 15th, 2017 –

New Album “The Blood of Gods” Out October 20th via Metal Blade Records

On October 20th, GWAR will release a new studio album entitled “The Blood of Gods” via Metal Blade Records. In support of the new album, your Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural (and anal) devastation across North America. Joining in the chaos will be Ghoul, Doyle (10/20-11/5), He Is Legend (11/7-12/10) and U.S. Bastards. The tour kicks off in Richmond, VA on October 20th and runs through December 10th in Detroit, MI. The tour includes a stop in New York City on Halloween as well! A complete list of dates can be found below.

The Berserker Blothar had this to say about the upcoming tour:
Humans, we are coming to tear your world apart with a live performance the likes of which has never been seen on this or any other planet! This album, “The Blood of Gods,” is the greatest thing since French toast. Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels. Now, we are taking the whole bloody shit show on the road, with the most spectacular, blood-drenched, gruesome, and terrifying rock concert of all time. Don’t miss your chance to sacrifice yourself to GWAR at a venue near you!

Bohabs! Be the coolest corpse in the pile! Don’t miss your chance to pledge your allegiance to GWAR each night when they rape and pillage your town. Head to gwarvip.com to take part in “The Lords and Masters VIP Experience“.

General admission tickets and VIP Packages go on sale to the public this Friday August 18th at 10:00 AM Eastern.

The Lords and Masters VIP Experience Includes:
• One (1) General Admission Ticket with Venue Early Entry (potentially guest list)
• Exclusive access to GWAR soundcheck where you will pledge allegiance to your Lords & Masters!
• Invitation to play a GWAR instrument onstage at soundcheck
• Tour of the weapons of your Lords & Masters
• Crowd Free Merch Access
• One (1) Souvenir item signed by members of GWAR
• One (1) Souvenir GWAR laminate
• Photo opportunity with GWAR before the show
• You will be killed by GWAR on stage during the show
• Designated Slave Pit Area to pledge your allegiance before you are killed on stage by GWAR!

There are only 5 VIP TICKETS available per show, that’s it so don’t wait.

Concerning the album: “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry. Meanwhile, Sleazy P. Martini, the crooked entrepreneur who discovered the Scumdogs, and has always envisioned them as a sort of horrific boy band, finally managed to convince the group to write a hit song called “I’ll Be Your Monster.” If all goes according to plan, it may be just stupid enough to work!
