DIMMU BORGIR Unleash Single & Music Video "Council Of Wolves And Snakes"

With over 1.3 million Youtube-views on their first single  "Interdimensional Summit,"  Norwegian devils  DIMMU BORGIR  have proven that they are back for good after over 7 years of silence. On May 4th, the symphonic black metal masters will deliver their new full-length album   Eonian   and today, they unveil their second single with a stunning music video.  The experimental, folkloristic  'Council of Wolves And Snakes'  is risking a look far beyond the horizon and proves that the band follows  'no formula, no absolute' , as  Silenoz  vows, and shows that the path sometimes guides them to places they would have never expected to end up when they started their journey.  Vocalist  Shagrath  states:  "It's a song that sticks out from the rest of the album, it's  DIMMU BORGIR going into an experimental direction, but you can also find a lot of black metal inspiration in the middle section of the song. We are a band that has never been afraid of trying out new directions and artistically this is surely a very interesting and different track."   Watch the music video of  "Council Of Wolves And Snakes"  here:  youtu.be/5ws18_MZ-lw   The digital single is available for download and streaming via this link:  nblast.de/DBCouncilWolvesSnakes   In case you missed the music video for  "Interdimensional Summit,"  watch it here:  youtu.be/P7vg7ir8jyc   Pre-order the album as digipak, 180g double vinyl, box set or digitally, here: nblast.de/DimmuBorgirEonian   So far,  DIMMU BORGIR  have announced the following festival shows for 2018 - an extensive world tour will be announced soon: 6/14-16/2018     CDN     Montebello, QC - Rockfest 6/23/2018  F  Clisson - Hellfest 7/06/2018  E  Barcelona - Rock Fest 6/2-4/2018   D  Wacken - Wacken Open Air 8/11/2018  B  Kortrijk - Alcatraz Metal Festival 8/16-18/2018  N  Horten - Midgardsblot Metalfestival 8/17-19/2018  USA  Las Vegas, NV - Psycho Las Vegas  9/18/2018  RUS  St. Petersburg - Kosmonavt 9/20/2018  RUS  Moscow - Glavclub  Being one of the successful extreme metal forges on the planet,  DIMMU BORGIR  have been dominating the symphonic black metal genre for 25 years. The songwriting core of  DIMMU BORGIR  furthermore consists of charismatic vocalist  Shagrath , as well as the string wizards  Silenoz  and  Galder , but other familiar faces also emerge from the darkness: Drummer  Daray  and keyboarder  Gerlioz  are still part of the team, and  Gaute Storaas  helped with the choral arrangements for the majestic voices of the  Schola Cantrum Choir . As the title   Eonian   indicates, the band's 10th full-length release is dealing with the illusion of time and marks a tribute to both the band's own past as well as the Norwegian black metal history.

RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA Reveal "War Is Killing Us All" Music Video

Band On Tour Now with Red & Lacey Sturm
 

Metalcore outfit  RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA  are excited to reveal the music video for their ferocious single, "War Is Killing Us All", taken off of their debut  CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS  album, "Cursed", which was released in early 2017.  The video was directed by Vince Lundi and filmed at the notorious Ohio State Reformatory, which has held some of history's most infamous criminals and has also been notably seen as the backdrop for blockbuster movies such as 'The Shawshank Redemption'. Much like the alleged ghosts that have been claimed to haunt the prison,  RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA  refuse to be silenced with their "deliberate and measured harsh vocals and growls" (Cryptic Rock) on "War Is Killing Us All".   Guitarist Justin Olmstead commented: " Everything came together perfectly for the "War Is Killing Us All" video. The song is dark and aggressive, so we wanted to go at it in a unique way that would actually capture the attitude. Capture the mentality of twisted distress and borderline insanity, while portraying that most battles are created and sustained in our own minds, ultimately attacking ourselves. Vince Lundi and the crew absolutely killed it on our POV concept, and the everyone at the Ohio State Reformatory was so cool in opening their doors and allowing us virtually free reign on sections of the prison to get the shots we needed to get. Everyone had such a great time hanging out and checking out the prison that it didn't even feel like a video shoot. Definitely an experience we will always remember.

AT THE GATES PREMIERE NEW VIDEO SINGLE: "A STARE BOUND IN STONE"

RELEASE "MAKING OF" CLIPS FROM "TO DRINK FROM THE NIGHT ITSELF"

BAND TO MAKE ONE-OFF U.S. APPEARANCE THIS WEEKEND HEADLINING DECIBEL BEER & METAL FEST

 

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MARCH 30, 2018    Swedish melodic Death Metal pioneers  AT THE GATES  continue pre-promoting their much anticipated new studio album “To Drink From The Night Itself”, out May 18, 2018 via  CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS   by launching its second single and video.  Check out “A Stare Bound In Stone” in a video-clip created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media (who was also in charge of the album’s artwork concept) here:  https://youtu.be/oIj6ufFSESU    AT THE GATES  frontman Tomas Lindberg comments on the track as follows: " For the second single release of the album we wanted this menacing stormer, fast aggressive verses, heavy chorus and an evil mantra of an ending. This, for me, depicts the desperate, urgent mood of the record. I think it could be one of the most aggressive songs we have ever written. This album is so diverse, and includes so much different elements that it is hard to boil down those essences to just one song. This song has a lot of them though, more to come soon. For the video-shoot we wanted to work with Costin on this one, as he is an essential part of this record. We felt that he knew exactly what kind of emotions we wanted to get across, and how to capture them artistically. I see this video as a brilliant complement to the song. Enjoy!

RIOT V - New Video Clip For "Heart Of A Lion"

Pre-Order Available: nuclearblast.com/riotv-armoroflight

 

Cult New York heavy metal band and godfathers of power metal,  RIOT V , will release their 16th album entitled,   Armor Of Light,   on April 27th via  Nuclear Blast .  Today, the band is pleased to release the official video clip of the second single  "Heart Of A Lion".  The video was filmed in  New York  and was produced by acclaimed director  Kyle Monroe  from  Ryk3r Productions !  Check it out:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSznM3ITp0s    Don Van Stavern  states:   "One of my traditional sounding DVS RIOT tunes! Beautifully intricate with a great vocal delivery, bombastic drums, string patterns from hell and a great hooky sing-a-long chorus! The video captures the lyrical story line and the awesome playmenship of the band. I'm really jazzed about this one!"    Todd Michael Hall  adds:   "My idea and lyrical content for 'Heart of a Lion' is about Richard the Lion Heart. He was known as an incredible Warrior and military leader, but he also gave into his weaknesses, much like our leaders of today. Ultimately, his hubris lead to his untimely death."

With the critically acclaimed " Unleash The Fire " (2014), a pure power metal jewel once again underlined the musical importance and influence of the quintet.  Many artists name-check  RIOT  as an important influence of their musical career and have paid tribute to the power metal godfathers on multiple occasions. The list is long and includes several well-known acts such as  HAMMERFALL  (  Flight Of The Warrio   r ),  Luca Trill's RHAPSODY  (  Thunderstee l ),  AXEL RUDI PELL  (' Warrior' ) and newcomers such as  NIGHT DEMON  (  Road Racin  ),  ALPHA TIGER  (  Flight Of The Warrior  ),  SAVAGE MASTER  (  Swords And Tequila  ) and  STALLION  (  Rock City ) .

MIDNATTSOL Release Video For "Herr Mannelig" via Bravewords

New Album The Aftermath Available May 25th via Napalm Records

 

The name "Espenæs" rightfully makes a lot of people swoon: Liv Kristine and her sister Carmen Elise were a vital part of a magnitude of gothic / symphonic / folk metal milestones - but so far a super group involving both sisters sharing microphone duties was only the stuff only dreams were made of. December 14, 2017 gave fans the ultimate pre-Christmas surprise -  Midnattsol  added a second vocalist, Liv Kristine.  Their fourth album   The Aftermath   profits massively from the addition of another voice; the fragile track 'Vem can segla' oozes pure magic and depth, whereas the rendition of the traditional Swedish ballad 'Herr Mannelig' revels in somber glory and folkloristic air. Especially in comparison to its predecessor   The Metamorphosis Melody   (2011),   The Aftermath   relies much more heavily on folk influences lending atmospheric density to the melancholic symphonic metal compositions. A sumptuous and sensual affair and a shimmering highlight in the discography of this German / Norwegian team!

TREMONTI TO RELEASE A DYING MACHINE WORLDWIDE VIA NAPALM RECORDS ON JUNE 8th

Pre-Order Now Available At: http://smarturl.it/ADyingMachine-NPR

Tremonti , the band comprised of Mark Tremonti on vocals/guitars, Eric Friedman on guitars, and Garrett Whitlock on drums, will be releasing their fourth full-length album,  A Dying Machine , worldwide via Napalm Records on June 8th. Longtime producer, Michael “Elvis” Baskette, produced the album. The album is currently available for pre-order at:  http://smarturl.it/ADyingMachine-NPR   From the militant drum assault of the album opener “Bringer Of War” to the instrumental closer “Found,”  A Dying Machine  is Tremonti’s most-diverse musical offering to date. Songs like “From The Sky,” “Throw Them To The Lions” and “A Lot Like Sin” are signature Tremonti that fans have come to love from the trio. Songs like “Trust,” “The First The Last” and “Desolation” take the listener to new places sonically, all backed by Tremonti’s signature vocal style. A teaser video with music from the album can be seen at:  https://youtu.be/LbJNULY8R0w    A Dying Machine  is the first concept album of Tremonti’s career and the music is inspired by a story that came to Mark while on the last Alter Bridge tour. During that time, the epic title track “A Dying Machine” was born. The story, which is being turned into a full-length work of fiction authored by Mark Tremonti and John Shirley, takes place at the turn of the next century where humans and fabricated beings called “vessels” are trying to co-exist. Tremonti and Shirley are working on finishing the novel to release alongside the record.  The track listing for  A Dying Machine  is:   1)   Bringer Of War  2)   From The Sky  3)   A Dying Machine  4)   Trust  5)   Throw Them To The Lions  6)   Make It Hurt  7)   Traipse  8)   The First The Last  9)   A Lot Like Sin  10) The Day When Legions Burned  11) As The Silence Becomes Me  12) Take You With Me  13) Desolation  14) Found   Tremonti  will be hitting the road in support of  A Dying Machine . The band will be playing a record release show in Orlando on May 12th at the Social. They are also confirmed for Carolina Rebellion on May 4th, the Lunatic Luau on May 5th and will be playing a headline shows in Savannah on May 2nd and Atlanta on May 7th.  The band heads over to Europe in mid-June for seven weeks of touring that includes dates as direct support for Iron Maiden alongside headline shows and European festival appearances. Full tour information and ticket purchase links can be found at  www.marktremonti.com .  After two decades at the forefront of all things guitar, a GRAMMY ®  Award win, 40 million-plus units sold between Alter Bridge, Creed, and his eponymous Tremonti, and countless other accolades, Mark Tremonti once again summited an uncharted creative peak in 2018. For the very first time, the guitarist and singer crafted an immersive concept and accompanying novel for Tremonti’s fourth full-length album and first for Napalm Records,  A Dying Machine . Since emerging in 2012, he and his bandmates—Eric Friedman [guitar, bass] and Garrett Whitlock [drums]—have built the foundation for such an ambitious statement. Their full-length debut  All I Was  bowed in the Top 5 of the  Billboard  Top Hard Rock Albums Chart and Top 30 of the Top 200. The 2015 follow-up  Cauterize  hit the #1 spot on the Top Rock Albums chart on iTunes when it was released. 2015 saw the frontman take home “Best Guitarist” at the  Loudwire Music Awards  just a year removed from his 2014 “Riff Lord” win at the  Metal Hammer Golden Gods . In between sold out headline gigs and festival appearances everywhere from  Rock on the Range  to  Shiprocked! , 2016’s  Dust maintained that momentum. With  A Dying Machine , Tremonti reaches new heights like never before.

"We're all so pumped for these shows!  This new lineup of the band has been a great excuse to re-imagine our set.  We're bringing back some old schoolEDENSONG classics.  We're unveiling some brand new songs!  We're also putting a new spin on the YITGOY material that we've been focusing on these past few years.  The bands we're playing with are incredible and it's an honor to play with these guys:  Ben Levin, the Nightwatch, Stratospheerius and more!  These are gonna be great nights of music", says frontman James Byron Schoen

 

As a special treat to all fans attending the upcoming shows,  EDENSONG  will have an exclusive live album for sale, that will only be available at the gigs.  The new live album  "YITGOY live at Terra Incognita"  features EDENSONG 's complete May 2017 performance of their critically acclaimed concept album   Years in the Garden of Years     at the Terra Incognita festival in Quebec City.  This exclusive live album is only available directly from the band at the shows on this tour and includes a digital download of a hi-res video of the entire concert.  Quantities are very limited.  Of the exclusive live release  James Byron Schoen  says "This was a very special performance for the band and I'm thrilled that we were able to capture it in such detail.  We've been fortunate enough to play the Terra Incognita festival twice, and while our first performance there is also one of my favorite  EDENSONG  gigs, I think that this 2017 performance is really the peak of what we achieved with our 2009-2017 lineup.  I didn't know at the time that this would be one of our last shows together, so it's all a bit bittersweet for me.  I think we brought a ton of energy and emotional presence and just really enjoyed the moment and the fantastic Quebecois prog audience.  For me, it's a very fitting tribute to the end of an  EDENSONG  era."  Recently  EDENSONG  announced the addition of  drummer Nicholas DiGregorio  and  koto player Kento Iwasaki  to the band roster.  The duo joins the eclectic lineup of  James Byron   Schoen  (vocals/guitar),  TD Towers  (bass/vocals) and  Barry Seroff  (flute), following the departures of  Tony Waldman  (drums) and  Stefan Paolini  (keyboards) last year after a successful North American tour.  DiGregorio, a dear friend of the band for twenty years who has a background in jazz and improvisational drumming, and Iwasaki, a koto player and composer who is at home playing anything from traditional Japanese music to jazz and modern pop, further expand the sonic palette of  EDENSONG , a band already known for its constantly evolving sound.   EDENSONG  have headlined shows around North America, played at prestigious progressive rock festivals such as RoSfest, Progtoberfest, Progday, 3RP, and Terra Incognita, and supported diverse acts including Kings X, Ozric Tentacles, Pain of Salvation, Neal Morse, and Anglagard.  They have been called "a great example of the contemporary face of progressive rock" by Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson.   EDENSONG 's latest release, a concept album entitled   Years in the Garden of Years  , and called a "masterpiece" by critics, was released in 2016 on Laser's Edge.  Stream the full album  HERE .

MINISTRY joins forces with HeadCount to empower young people with their right to vote

For  Al Jourgensen  and  MINISTRY , writing, recording and releasing their new album   AmeriKKKant   is just one step in shining a bright light on the dangerous and unsustainable road our Government is currently taking us down; the next step is to help empower young people with their Constitutional right to vote.     “Voting is really important,” said  Jourgensen .  “It allows every American citizen to have his voice heard, to put across your opinion on how the government should operate, it contributes to change.   MINISTRY  registered 50,000 people to vote for the 2008 election, and we want to help make a difference for this fall’s election and for 2020.  So, we’ve invited HeadCount to join us on our ‘AmeriKKKant' tour."    At more than half of the U.S. tour dates (see below), HeadCount will be on hand near the merch tables to talk to concert goers about how voting can help make a real difference, and get them registered.  Those interested are also invited to visit  HeadCount’s site  where they can register to vote online.     Added  Andy Bernstein , Headcount’s Executive Director, "HeadCount couldn't be more excited to host voter registration drives at Ministry shows this year and beyond. Voting is the cornerstone of democracy, and it's incredible to see Al use his platform to make a difference in our society."   For these North American dates, Jourgensen has assembled an impressive group of all-star musicians -  MINISTRY  stalwarts  Sin Quirin  and  Cesar Soto  on guitars,  Tony Campos   on bass, and keyboardist  John Bechdel , along with guest vocalist  Burton C. Bell  ( Fear Factory ) and live scratcher  DJ Swamp  ( Beck ,  The Crystal Method ).  The band will present a brand new set list that will include more new songs from   AmeriKKKant ,  giant inflatable Trump chickens, video screens projecting images to compliment the music, and a couple of Antifa soldiers.   Said  Jourgensen , "Old friends, new music...Dream lineup, nightmare world.  And a chance to make a real difference in the world.  Get your ass to this show...this one will be memorable."    MARCH  22  House of Blues, Anaheim, CA ** 23  Ventura Theatre, Ventura, CA 24  Brooklyn Bowl, Las Vegas, NV ** 26  Ace of Spades, Sacramento, CA ** 28  Roseland Theatre, Portland, OR ** 29  Vogue Theatre, Vancouver, BC  CANADA 31  Union Hall, Edmonton, AB  CANADA    APRIL   1   Palace Theatre, Calgary, AB  CANADA  3   Wilma Theatre, Missoula, MT  5   Bourbon Theatre, Lincoln, NE  7   Riviera Theatre, Chicago, IL **  8   Turner Hall Ballroom, Milwaukee, WI 10  Bogart's, Cincinnati, OH ** 11  20 Monroe Live, Grand Rapids, MI ** 12  Egyptian Room, Indianapolis, IN ** 14  Opera House, Toronto, ON  CANADA 15  MTelus, Montreal, QC  CANADA 17  Royale, Boston, MA ** 18  Aura, Portland, ME ** 19  Paramount Theatre, Huntington, NY 21  Wellmont Theatre, Montclair, NJ 22  Town Ballroom, Buffalo, NY 23  Rams Head Live, Baltimore, MD ** 25  Center Stage, Atlanta, GA ** 26  Hard Rock Live, Orlando, FL ** 28  Levitation Festival, Austin, TX   ** dates where HeadCount will be registering voters    ABOUT HEADCOUNT:  HeadCount is a non-partisan organization that uses the power of music to register voters and promote participation in democracy.  We reach young people and music fans where they already are - at concerts and online - to inform and empower.  Our message is not about what party your support or where you land on an issue.  It’s that you must speak to be heard.   Musicians and their fans can be leaders in worldwide social movements.  HeadCount is focused on harnessing that ability and translating it into real action.  Our goal is to help shape policy tna culture in America by galvanizing the music community into a politically influential force.

ABOUT RADKEY   Like any great rock band, the gas in Radkey's tank has been a will to rock on their terms. As pre-teens growing up in the Nowheresville of Saint Joseph, Missouri, they enrolled in rock n roll high school as their ticket out. With their music-obsessed dad-and-former Wal-Mart employee as road manager, the brothers played their first show opening for Fishbone in 2011 and haven't looked back since. The family van thundered across the nation, chewing up tires and splatting insects on the windshield as Radkey gigged with the likes of Red Fang, Touche Amore and Against Me!.  In 2013, The Cat & Mouse and Devil Fruit EP's took Radkey from sweaty backroom punk gigs to storming the UK's Download Festival, and the US' Riotfest. The backstory of three African-American brothers raised on their dad's vinyl collection was only eclipsed by the band's live show that left audiences breathless with a messy punk rock n roll riot of their own.   By 2015, things were at critical mass for Radkey, having toured the US with Rise Against and having appeared at Coachella Enlisting Arctic Monkeys producer/mixer Ross Orton. Radkey went straight off the road into a studio, to record their debut record, Delicious Rock Noise. The result is an across-the-board detonation of several shades of rock, punk and wild abandon. And riffs, riffs, riffs.   Now, as they kick off 2018 with new music, their sound has continued to expand and mature, reflected in the sleek guitar and growing bass of their new track, "Not Smart." It's a testament to the future of music and the band is primed for the rock and roll hall of fame.   Listen to "Not Smart" on:    Spotify    Apple Music    iTunes    Google Play    Amazon    Follow Radkey on:    Website    Facebook    Twitter    Instagram
