Season of Mist signs The Chariot

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Season of Mist just signed US Mathcore act THE CHARIOT in Europe! THE CHARIOT are true artists whose determined passions lead them down winding pathways as they buck trends and avoid formulas. 

The noisy, rambling, shambling, Southern-fried, punk-infused, heavy hardcore band has long rejected the conventions of the genre that surrounds them by refusing to conform to established structures. THE CHARIOT's sound and presentation owe more to AT THE DRIVE IN, REFUSED, NIRVANA or even THE SEX PISTOLS in spirit and vibe than the formulaic processed sounds of their contemporaries.

The band's fifth album is entitled "One Wing" and will be released in Europe through Season of Mist on September 21st. 

Here are the cover artwork and tracklisting:
Som270
  1. Forget
  2. Not
  3. Your
  4. First
  5. Love.
  6. Speak
  7. In
  8. Tongues
  9. And
  10. Cheek.
"We love touring Europe and are excited to work with Season", singer Josh Scogin comments. "The more we can do to bring out music to new kids in new places the better!"

You can pre-order "One Wing" as a CD digipak on Season of Mist e-shop, or as a digital album on iTunes and Amazon MP3.

New Solefald album in 2013

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Solefald are currently writing their eighth studio album «Kosmopolis», scheduled for release in the Fall of 2013!

Solefald Finally Playing Live with In Vain as Crew!
 On September 15th 2012, Solefald will make their live debut at the Southern Discomfort festival in Kristiansand, Norway. Solefald are also set to play the Inferno Festival in Oslo in the Easter of 2013. Fronted by Lazare and Cornelius, the Solefald gunboat will feature avantgarde deathsters In Vain as live crew, a lethal lineup capable of rendering all the nuances of the Solefald discography.

Solefald and In Vain are currently working on gigs, festivals and tours for 2013!

Solefald
Since their inception in 1995, Solefald have contributed to the diversification of extreme metal with an unbroken succession of albums. Arguably one of the most critically acclaimed acts of avantgarde black metal, no concept or instrument has been too weird for the Norwegian duo who branded their initial style “red music with black edges”. In 2009, Solefald's debut “The Linear Scaffold” was ranked #30 in Terrorizer's top 40 black metal albums. The 2010 offering “Norrøn Livskunst” was nominated for a Norwegian Grammy award. After a decade with demands for Solefald concerts, it is about time to bring the band's classics home to the fanatics.

In Vain
In Vain was formed in 2003 and released 2 EPs before signing with Indie Recordings in 2006. In 2007 the band released their debut album "The Latter Rain" which received brilliant reviews from aunited metal press. The same year In Vain toured Europe together with Vreid and Battered. "Mantra" was released in January 2010, and received amazing reviews as well. Rocksound Magazine UK wrote: "One of the most compelling, absurd and utterly brilliant progressive metal releases since Opeth’s "Watershed". (9/10)". Following the release of Mantra In Vain did their second European tour, played several shows abroad and supported Keep of Kalessin on their Norwegian tour. Reviewers describe In Vain as progressive extreme metal, however the band is very hard to pinpoint and have a totally unique sound.

Posthum releases new single

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Today Posthum release the new single “Scarecrow” from the upcoming album “Lights Out”, to be released September 21st in Europe and September 25th in North America! Check it out HERE!

Posthum is melancholic, atmospheric and hypnotizing Norwegian Black Metal with progressive and aggressive elements. The band was formed in 2004 in a small town in the east of Norway, and until 2009 Posthum kept fairly isolated from other musical communities and bands.  This resulted in their music not being particularly influenced by the trends in the scene, and despite their obvious roots in Norwegian Black Metal Posthum sounds new and fresh. Their self titled debut ensured Posthum some well-deserved attention that lead to a European Tour with legendary Satyricon and Shining (SE) that same year. Now they are finally ready to release their eagerly anticipated second album!

The Darkness er tilbage...

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
I 2003 tog engelske THE DARKNESS verden med storm. Inden de havde solgt mere end en million eksemplarer af debutalbummet ”Permission To Land” i hjemlandet havde de også brudt igennem i resten af verden med deres kompromisløse ”take” på klassisk rock’n’roll og glam rock. Tre år, endnu et studiealbum, et utal af verdensturneer og adskillige skandaler senere forlod den karismatiske forsanger Justin Hawkins THE DARKNESS og bandet gik i opløsning.

Derfor var overraskelsen stor og forventningerne til et nyt studiealbum endnu større, da THE DARKNESS sidste år annoncerede, at bandet var gendannet, og at der blev arbejdet på et 3. studiealbum. Resultatet er ”Hot Cakes”, der udkommer mandag d. 20. august og består af 11 skæringer med det letgenkendelige musikalske overskud, som THE DARKNESS har gjort til sit varemærke.

Allerede nu modtager ”Hot Cakes” 9 ud af 10 mulige stjerner i både den engelske og tyske udgave af det toneangivende magasin Classic Rock. Første single fra albummet ”Everybody Have a Good Time” er pt. i heftig rotation i bl.a. England, USA og Tyskland. Videoen kan ses her.

THE DARKNESS er desuden ”special guest” på Lady Gagas kommende stadion-turne rundt i Europa og spiller i den forbindelse i Parken søndag d. 2. september.

THE DARKNESS ”Hot Cakes” udkommer i Danmark på CD, ltd. CD, LP og digitalt mandag d. 20. august på [PIAS] Recordings via Target Distribution.

Trackliste:
01. Every Inch of You
02. Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us
03. With A Woman
04. Keep Me Hangin’ On
05. Livin’ Each Day Blind
06. Everybody Have A Good Time
07. She Just A Girl, Eddie
08. Forbidden Love
09. Concrete
10. Street Spirit (Fade Out)

New The Maine album in September

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Arizona rockers THE MAINE return with their third studio album titled ‘Pioneer & The Good love’. The ‘Pioneer’ release originally came out in the US in December last year and has to date not been available in Europe, the European version – Pioneer & The Good Love - set for release on September 11 via Rude Records – will contain 6 brand new, previously unreleased tracks. 
Since the inception of the band in 2007, The Maine have released 2 albums to date, have toured the world with those, and have just announced a full European tour this September ( full list below). 

The creation of “Pioneer & the Good love” was an enlightening experience for the band. They moved into a farm in Gilbert, Arizona last year to write the songs for the album and came out with the 9 songs, which were turned down by the label. Instead of being disheartened by the initial rejection, the band decided to go back to the studio and record an additional 17 songs. 13 of which were released last year under the moniker ‘Pioneer’ in the US independently on the band’s label, Action Theory Records.The band didn’t stop here, in the following months they worked hard at setting up an international independent network – it’s now finally time for all those 19 songs to see the light of the day with the impending release of ‘Pioneer & the Good Love’ in Europe this September.

Obsidian calls it quits

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Hi All,

Sad but inevitable news from Obsidian. After more than a year of searching for inspiration and energy to re-ignite the metal machine, the oil would not flow anymore. After our latest release “Point of Infinity” we noticed that our musical focus had shifted. We thought about (and tried) changing our direction, creating a new set list. Basically to start over again. But we could not find the energy needed to pull something like this off. Individually we still spend a lot of time in making music, so our creative hearts won’t stop beating, although it might not be for the same genre in some cases.

So, from the more than a few bands called Obsidian, there will be one less. We hope that people have enjoyed the music we brought out and urge people to not harm themselves in light of this new perspective of a world without Obsidian. We want to thank everybody who helped Obsidian directly or by just making wind by hair to our music.

Can’t get enough of our mugs? Follow Obsidian band members via:

André Matos releasing new solo album

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
According to Alessandra Martins of ROCKPressBrasil, Brazilian singer, keyboard player and composer André Matos (ANGRA, SHAAMAN, VIPER) will release his third solo album, "The Turn Of The Lights", simultaneously in Brazil, Japan and Europe on August 22. In Brazil, the CD will be made available through Azul whereas in Japan, the effort will be handled through Marquee Avalon.

Matos' current solo band includes new drummer Rodrigo Silveira and bass player Bruno Ladislau — replacing Eloy Casagrande (now with SEPULTURA) and Luis Mariutti, respectively. Keyboardist Fabio Ribeiro also left the group. André's longtime collaborators, guitar players Hugo Mariutti and Andre "Zaza" Hernanades, have remained with the singer.

The concept of "The Turn Of The Lights" is guided by its theme: when you give light to something that has never been lit before, you reveal verity, faces and shapes that had been imagined before. It is a reflexion of mankind nowadays, where it is necessary to comprehend that we are part of the whole, even exercising our individuality. When we do something — positive or not — it reflects on the entire planet.

"The Turn Of The Lights" contains eleven breathtaking tracks produced by American sound engineer Brendan Duffey and Adriano Daga at Norcal Studios in Brazil. Duffey and Daga skillfully balanced tha aggressive and precise lines of Mariutti and Hernandes' guitars, with excellent orchestral textures on piano and keyboards, played by Matos.

The track listing for the Japanese version of "The Turn Of The Lights" is as
follows:

Disc 1:
01. Liberty
02. Course Of Life
03. The Turn Of The Lights
04. Gaza
05. Stop!
06. On Your Own
07. Unreplaceable
08. Oversoul
09. White Summit
10. Light-Years
11. Sometimes

Disc 2:
01. At Least A Chance (VIPER cover)
02. I Don't Believe In Love (QUEENSRŸCHE cover)
03. Fake Plastic Trees (RADIOHEAD cover)
04. (JAPANESE ENKA cover)
