MANOWAR: Four Audio Samples From Re-Recorded 'Battle Hymns' Available

MANOWAR has decided that its fans deserved to hear the songs from its debut album, 1982's "Battle Hymns", with the massive sound and production that has become the group's signature over recent years and records.

With the decision to reinterpret the music came the need to revisit the famed narration of the legendary Orson Welles. There was only one obvious choice and that was Sir Christopher Lee. Recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London, his own inspired interpretation of the late, great Orson Welles on "Dark Avenger" will be another jewel in the crown of the Kings Of Metal.

"Battle Hymns 2011" release dates:

MP3 (from The Kingdom Of Steel): November 26
CD - Europe: November 26
CD - Kingdom Of Steel: December 13
CD - U.S./Canada: February 2011

"Battle Hymns 2011" will feature two never-before-released live versions of "Death Tone" and "Fast Taker" recorded during the band's very first concerts in 1982. These are the rarest bonus materials ever released to date in MANOWAR's career.

"Our fans can be sure that we have squeezed every drop of power into 'Battle Hymns 2011' that today's technology allows," said vocalist Eric Adams.

"Battle Hymns 2011" track listing:

01. Death Tone
02. Metal Daze
03. Fast Taker
04. Shell Shock
05. Manowar
06. Dark Avenger
07. William's Tale
08. Battle Hymn

Bonus Tracks:

09. Death Tone (live)
10. Fast Taker (live)

Rough-mix samples of the new versions of four songs from "Battle Hymns 2011" can be streamed below.

"Manowar" audio sample:

"Metal Daze" audio sample:

"Shell Shock" audio sample:

"Fast Taker" audio sample:

In a recent video message, MANOWAR bassist and producer Joey DeMaio explained the band's decision to re-record "Battle Hymns": "We've had a couple of people ask why re-record a record like 'Battle Hymns' when it's perfect... I didn't say it's perfect, but other people said it's perfect, and we thank you for that. We're not trying to make it better, because it is what it is, but there's a lot of technology now that we didn't have when we made the record and we're gonna take advantage of it to make it as loud as we possibly can. So it won't be better; it'll just be different. And the songs themselves deserve to be recorded again because they're great songs and the fans have actually requested a lot of this to happen. And also, Donnie Hamzik, our original drummer, is back in the band, and he wanted to have another go at it. We're all together and we're gonna have a fucking great time."

Video footage of DeMaio talking about the decision to re-record "Battle Hymns" and laying down bass tracks in the studio can be viewed below.

MANOWAR's latest DVD in the "Hell On Earth" series was released on November 27, 2009. "Hell On Earth V" covers MANOWAR's recent world tours, including Germany, Norway, Spain, Finland, Russia, Romania, Turkey, USA and Canada. It features live performances of old and new classics such as "Gloves Of Metal", "The Crown And The Ring", "Hand Of Doom", "Hymn Of The Immortal Warrior", "Father", "God Or Man" and many others.

MELISSA AUF DER MAUR: Video Footage Of PETER STEELE Tribute From Milan - Sep. 11, 2010

Fan-filmed video footage of former HOLE bassist Melissa Auf Der Maurpaying tribute to late TYPE O NEGATIVE frontman Peter Steele by performing part of TYPE 0 NEGATIVE's "Black No. 1" followed by a TYPE O-styled cover version of BLACK SABBATH's "Paranoid" on August 26, 2010 at club Magnolia in Milan, Italy can be viewed below.

Photos of the show (by reporter Arianna Ascione) are available onMusica Metal.

Melissa Auf der Maur (MAdM) unveiled the first chapter of her multimedia solo project OUT OF OUR MINDS (OOOM) with a new album, which was released in March. Dynamic, multilayered and independently produced, OOOM is described in a press release as "a 21st-century concept project that includes a solo album, short film, comic book, live performances, gallery presentations and several viral components." A "choose your own adventure" — one can collect and consume all the parts, or each part can exist on its own.

Melissa Auf der Maur said of the project, "OOOM began as a song. It was mid-first-decade of the 21st Century and technology had just begun to dismantle the music business towers. It was the best thing that could've ever happened to me. The landscape changed and I began to morph my roots in visual arts with the music. The many portals of OOOMinvite listeners and viewers to discover on their own, at their own pace and in their own space. If you're listening, Come in…"

The OOOM album consists of 12 powerful tracks produced and mixed by top-flight creative collaborators including Jordon Zadorozny (SAM ROBERTS), Chris Goss (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, UNKLE), Alan Molder (DEPECHE MODE, SMASHING PUMPKINS), and Mike Fraser(FRANZ FERDINAND, AC/DC). The album features a notable special duet with legendary Goth rocker Glenn Danzig on "Father's Grave". Other standout tracks are "Meet Me On The Dark Side" and "22 Below", which highlights MAdM's ability to fuse her bass rifts with captivating melodies.

An essential component of OOOM is the 28-minute, HD film starring and conceived by MAdM under the direction of Tony Stone. The film was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival last year, as well as at World Con's 67th Annual Sci-Fi Convention, garnering widespread critical praise. In October, the OOOM film was added as an installation piece and contemporary interpretation to an international showcase of pre-Raphaelite painter J.W. Waterhouse's work.

BEHEMOTH: Frontman Diagnosed With Leukemia

BEHEMOTH frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has been diagnosed with leukemia.

According to reports, the disease is in advanced stages to where chemotherapy is not an option for treatment. Nergal will most likely need a bone marrow transplant.

Reports indicate that Nergal’s fiance has donated bone marrow, but it has not been determined if there will be a DNA match.

This is very sad news for all metal fans, many of whom have already shown incredible support. Other Polish artists are currently organizing concerts to help raise awareness of Nergal’s condition, although no artists or concert dates have as yet been announced. Nergal is currently undergoing a multi-stage, months-long treatment at Gdansk Medical University Hospital and all BEHEMOTH tour dates indefinitely canceled for the foreseeable future.

This is the unexpected clarification of Nergal’s very hopeful statement earlier this month.

SEPTICFLESH: New Album Update


Greek extreme metallers SEPTICFLESH are hard at work on material for their new album, tentatively due in early 2011. The recording process is scheduled to begin in August at the band's own newly built Devasoundz studios in Athens. Once again the orchestral parts will be recorded in Prague under the guidance of Chris Antoniou (CHAOSTAR). This time, the band's effort "is bound to expand its dark and dreamy soundscapes and will be enhanced" by the mixing job of producer PAIN/HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren (AMON AMARTH, MARDUK, THERION, CHILDREN OF BODOM, CELTIC FROST, IMMORTAL).

Commented SEPTICFLESH: "The creation of the 10 songs that will appear on the next album is approaching the final stage. The musical result can be described as a great mass of emotional death. One of the dominant elements of the album is the use of the characteristic guitar melodies of the band in a more intense and dramatic way. In combination with the orchestral parts that will surpass everything else that the band has done in the past, the sound resembles to a funeral concerto. Actually, it appears that the whole atmosphere of the album is one step closer to the depths of Hades… Also, as actually SEPTICFLESH is in the wider sense an artistic dark experiment, the nightmarish visual world of Seth Siro Anton that is part of this experiment is going to be expanded towards extremity in order to 'dress' fittingly the soundscapes and the new mysterious lyrical thematology."

Necroterror Records, the Cyprus-based underground record label and distributor which specializes in high-quality black metal releases mainly in the vinyl format, released the 12" LP/box version of SEPTICFLESH's latest album, "Communion". Limited to 350 copies, this vinyl release features all-new alternative cover artwork and layout to the CD version, created by Seth Siro Anton. A special edition gold vinyl boxed set is also available containing several unique extras.

SEPTICFLESH's "comeback" album, "Communion", was released in March 2008 via Season of Mist.

Dimmu Borgir reveal album cover

The artwork created for the new DIMMU BORGIR album Abrahadabra by German artist / painter / graphic designer Joachim Luetke (Arch Enemy, Kreator, Sopor Aeternus) can be viewed below.


The word "abrahadabra" (which roughly translates into "I will create as I speak") first publicly appeared in Chapter III of Liber AL vel Legis (commonly referred to as The Book of the Law) written by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt in 1904.



DIMMU BORGIR singer/songwriter Shagrath shares the following about the new album:

“After eleven months of total focus, dedication and professional team work, Darkness has been reborn. Some people have expressed their concern about the future of the band since the departure of some members of the clan. Let me assure you that things happen for a reason. The black flame burns brighter than ever before. With the mixture of our different musical preferences and the personalities involved, I will dare to say we have created a BEAST, the most detailed work to date out of our 17 years of existence. I know it’s too much of a cliché to brag when you have a done a new album, but to put it short and simple, it’s a fist in the face to all the doubters out there. Forward – Onward - March... ENTER THE SUPREME UNKNOWN.”

For the second time in the band’s career (i.e. 1996’s Stormblåst), a one-word album title breaks the tradition of a three-word album title for a new studio release dating back to DIMMU BORGIR’s 1994’s debut, For All Tid.


Guitarist/songwriter Silenoz has this to say on the topic:

"We knew there would be some big changes with this album in more than one way and since we've had the three word title tradition for many years now, we thought it'd make a lot of sense for us to move on from that. It has served its purpose. We are a band that's all about change and moving forward. An album title consisting of one word goes hand-in-hand with the new material - it describes both the musical and lyrical content in a more imaginary way, not to mention the unity and the everlasting flame which is DIMMU BORGIR. Expect the unexpected!"


When asked about the central figure in the artwork and who/what he’s supposed to represent, artist Joachim Luetke responds:

“I think that’s obvious. Since the whole ‘setting’ is located in an icy, bleak, winter-y, post-industrial era, we’re pretty close to H.P. Lovecraft’s nameless elder gods. They’re represented by the mask’s tentacles. In short: the mask/face personifies dominion of powers far beyond mankind. The nameless gods witnessed the birth of our universe and they’ll watch it implode. To them, the age of mankind is but a blink of an eye.”

Abrahadabra will be released in Germany on September 24th, in the rest of Europe on September 27th, and in North America on October 12th.

DISTURBED: 'Asylum' Track Listing Revealed


Chicago hard rockers DISTURBED will release their new album, "Asylum", on August 31 via Reprise Records. The CD will follow up the group's 2008 release, "Indestructible", their fourth million-seller in a row and third No. 1 album.

"Asylum" track listing:

01. Remnants
02. Asylum
03. The Infection
04. Warrior
05. Another Way To Die
06. Never Again
07. The Animal
08. Crucified
09. Serpentine
10. My Child
11. Sacrifice
12. Innocence

As with "Indestructible", DISTURBED self-produced "Asylum", which the band began writing in September 2009 and recording in February of this year. Frontman David Draiman describes it as "still identifiably DISTURBED, but showing more maturation. We feel this is one of the strongest bodies of work we've ever put together. It definitely goes in familiar areas, but with new levels of precision and skill."

Lyrically, Draiman says, the themes "range from very personal and introspective, to the political and provocative. What would you expect? No songs about puppy dogs or rainbows here."

"We want this record to be a shining example of how the years have made us stronger," Draiman says. "We want it to be an album that helps people get through their own trials and tribulations, as always."

The first single from "Asylum", "Another Way To Die" deals with some very timely subject matter, as Draiman told The Pulse of Radio. "Obviously it's referring to the global catastrophe that we know as global warming, and the effects that it continues to have on our planet, and our irresponsibility in doing what we do as a species, and our constant appetite, our constant consumption at all costs, you know, no matter what is destroyed, no matter what is laid to waste," he said. "And certainly what's happening in the Gulf now is, you know, horrific."

"Another Way To Die" went on sale at iTunes on June 15.

DISTURBED will hit the road ahead of the album's release, and will be anchoring this summer's new Uproar Tour with AVENGED SEVENFOLD and STONE SOUR.

NIGHTFALL: 'Astron Black' Video Teaser Available

A video teaser for "Astron Black And The Thirty Tyrants", the new album from reformed Greek metallers NIGHTFALL — featuring frontman and lyricist Efthimis Karadimas alongside Evan Hensley on guitar, Stathis Kassios on keyboards and Jörg Uken on drums — can be viewed below. The CD is scheduled for release on August 30 via Metal Blade Records. The cover artwork was created by Travis Smith.

"Astron Black And The Thirty Tyrants" was recorded at various places, including Soundlodge in Germany, where the bulk of the sessions took place. It was produced by Karadimas and Uken (who has previously worked with GOD DETHRONED, DEW-SCENTED and SINISTER). According to a press release, Jörg’s "experience behind the recording desk and his soul in recording both as the new drummer of the band is a great plus for the whole production and for everybody truly into metal drumming the… old classic metal way!"

"Astron Black And The Thirty Tyrants" will contain 12 tracks for a running time of 43 minutes.

Regarding the new CD title, the group previously stated, "Tyrants represent the punishment accrued from our own actions, the allegoric way. But what about the first part of the title, Astron Black?

"The Astron refers to the bearer of light, the sun, life itself and phos that allows no secret to remain hidden for ever, the hope, the hunter, the ray slashing the monotony of nothing, the effort to breathe to cry to understand to communicate and ultimately to create, the god, the gods, the man!

"The Black refers to the endless, the eternal warm nest either within us or far above, the mystery, the epitome of arcane that asks to be conquered and the challenge that cannot be regretted, the deep, the soul attractor and fears the force’s being made of, the vessel of creation, the goddess, the womb, the woman!

"Astron Black is a fiction persona in human like body shape. Moving throughout centuries, being inspired and eventually driven by its needs and wills, this beast-cum-beauty and vice versa creature moves violently in harmonious circles known as Time. That Aenaon creature symbolises the opposite natures in universe, the duality that characterises every form of life and action whose motion generates aural waves, inking the pages of collective subconscious chronicles."

NIGHTFALL’s seventh full-length album, "Lyssa: Rural Gods and Astonishing Punishments" was released in 2005 through Black Lotus Records.

OZZY - Official video for "Let me hear you scream" single

Το video για το "Let me hear you scream" του Ozzy Osbourne,μπορείτε να παρακολουθήσετε παρακάτω.

Ozzy: Wylde was drinking too much


Ozzy Osbourne has revealed he parted ways with longtime guitarist Zakk Wylde because it was becoming more and more difficult to be sober around someone who drank so heavily.

The Black Label Society star has been replaced by Gus G in Ozzy's touring line-up and now the rock legend has explained the real reason behind his decision to end his long professional relationship with Wylde.

Osbourne tells Guitar World magazine, "Zakk came in at the beginning of the new one (record), but he was still drinking. When you're drunk and somebody else is drinking, it's OK, but when you're sober and somebody's blabbering away in your ear, it ain't. I mean, Zakk's a great player and I love him. I love his playing. But in the end, it came to the point that I had to get another guitarist.

"It was hard for me to be around someone who is actively drinking. I heard he's not drinking anymore. I don't know if that's true or not.

"I love his playing; he's one of the greats. But it was the drink getting the better of him. I couldn't watch him die. In one sick respect, it was good for me to see, because that's what I was like, and worse. Believe me, if I started drinking now you'd think, 'F**k, this is b**locks! I've got to get out of here.'

That's how I felt around Zakk toward the end."

But the Brit insists he and Wylde are still good friends.

He says, "We're like family."

Rammstein live in Athens 28-06-2010



Ο γράφων, γύρισα το πρωί απο Μαλακάσα (terravibe), όπου απόλαυσα μαζί με χιλιάδες συνοπαδούς, τη μεγαλειώδης πραγματικά συναυλία, του φαινομένου που ονομάζεται Rammstein.
Αυτά που είδαν τα ματάκια μας, μόνο απο τους ίδιους μπορούμε να ξαναδούμε-ξανακούσουμε-ξαναβιώσουμε. Απο κανέναν άλλον. Εδώ κυριολεκτώ και επιμένω.
Αν εξαιρέσουμε κάποια ψιλοπροβληματάκια (καθυστέρησαν να βγούν στη σκηνή), οι Γερμανοί παρέδωσαν μαθήματα επαγγελματισμού και μουσικής ιδιοφυίας.
Υπέροχοι.

Άξιοι αναφοράς το support group, οι Νορβηγοί Combichrist (oι οποίοι παρουσιάστηκαν παλαιότερα απο την στήλη), παίζοντας σφιχτοδεμένο industrial electro. Πολύ καλοί.
