Barge To Hell: More bands announced

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
The last day of November, NOVEMBERS DOOM! Now it's time to reveal the VITAL REMAINS of BARGE TO HELL, The World's Most Extreme Metal Cruise! But first, we have to clear up some confusion. We all know that NECRONOMICON are on board. But which one? Both! The Germans and the Canadians!

Traditionally, we also want to give some young hopefuls a stage. Please welcome: ABIOTIC, ZANTHROPYA EX, and DARK SERMON!

But that can't be all, can it? Of course not! There must be one last treat. A treat of evil witchcraft: Please welcome BRUJERIA!

There is not much time left, book NOW

- The cozy “Spectrum” that gives you the real club feeling.
- And their jewel: The open air stage on the pool deck. The biggest festival stage to sail the Oceans.

You can also get all your memorabilia signed at the Meet & Greet sessions. Be part of their infamous Metal Karaoke and many other special activities with the Artists. And last, but not least: Don’t forget that they have bars on board that never close! What are you waiting for? You might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done.

Nile premiere new video clip

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
The reigning kings of technical historically-themed brutality, NILE, have posted the music video for “Enduring the Eternal Molestation of Flame” at Youtube. 


The clip was produced and directed by Jon Simvonis for Magnum Production Studios Co. and Arctos Broadcast Facilities. It also features the African Heritage group and photography by Philippos Kokkalis.

“It was truly an honor to direct the new NILE video; a band with so many diehard fans and such a strong impact in the metal scene,” commented Simvonis. “The video concept, as a matter of fact,  was inspired by the culture and the ritual habits of the Ancient Nubia, a region along the Nile River, which is located in northern Sudan and Southern Egypt. The research and design elements of the video led to a really interesting combination of the Ancient Egyptian myths, through the prism of the Nubian African Voodoo Burial rituals. Two worlds set so close, yet so far from each other.”

Sylosis premiere new video clip

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
"Little known secret; METALLICA's ...And Justice For All and DEATH's Symbolic record had a baby. It was tossed into a junkyard and forgotten about. It ate metal and drank gasoline until it broke free and began to kill. SYLOSIS defines modern speed metal. " – Chris Adler (LAMB OF GOD)

UK based modern thrash heroes SYLOSIS have premiered the music video for the track “Fear The World” at the following location: http://smarturl.it/FearTheWorld. The song comes from SYLOSIS’ latest album, Monolith, which was released on October 9 via Nuclear Blast Records.

SYLOSIS
are currently on a tour of the United States with LAMB OF GOD, along with Swedish titans IN FLAMES and HELLYEAH. Check out their video tour blogs by using the following links.

Monolith was recorded with Romesh Dodangoda in Wales at Monnow Valley Studio and mastered by Jens Bogren (SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH, BLOODBATH) at Fascination Street Studios. The concept for the lyrics were loosely inspired by the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. The artwork was created this time around by Dan Goldsworthy (ACCEPT, HELL).

A Pale Horse Named Death ready with album #2

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, have confirmed a late spring 2013 release for the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut And Hell Will Follow Me via SPV Records.

The band has once again commissioned famed artist Sam Shearon AKA Mister-Sam (Rob Zombie, Fear Factory, Rammstein) to create the artwork for the as yet untitled album. Frontman Sal Abruscato gave an update on the album: “The sound has evolved and become a bit more orchestrated.   More harmony work has been done on this album, including new elements such as a Hammond B3 organ and piano.  To me the album has an even darker sound and feel than the first one.”  

He continued, “The new album is a natural progression in song writing and vocals yet keeping continuity with the first album musically and artistically.  Fans of our first album will find all the traits they love melded with even bigger production and mastering. Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound will be mastering the album.”

More information will be released in the coming weeks.

A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH is:
Sal Abruscato – Lead Vocals and Guitar
Matt Brown – Guitars and Backing Vocals
Johnny Kelly – Drums
Eric Morgan – Bass
Eddie Heedles – Guitar

Bakerteam Records signs Straight On Target

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Straight On Target have signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of their debut album ‘Pharmakos’. The band debuted in 2011 with the self-produced EP ‘Mediocritas’, a powerful, straightforward Deathcore attack which was able to attract very positive reactions from fans and critics alike, but they are now ready to unleash all their fury with a furious full length release. ‘Pharmakos’ combines ferocious vocals, super-heavy riffs, bonecrushing blastbeats and killer breakdowns in the vein of bands such as Aborted, The Acacia Strain, Whitechapel, Impending Doom and Molotov Solution among others, still keeping the focus on strong songwriting and meaningful lyrics. Straight On Target will tour extensively to promote the album.

A video preview of the song ‘Demonized’ is available on the band’s official Youtube channel:

‘Pharmakos’ will be available starting from January 14th, 2013. Follow www.bakerteamrecords.com and http://www.facebook.com/StraightOnTarget for all the updates.

Riverside posts album teaser

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Poland’s Progressive Rock shooting stars RIVERSIDE are premiering the first new music or their much anticipated upcoming fifth studio album “Shrine Of New Generation Slaves” today.

Check about the online-teaser here:
http://youtu.be/KOB8BCv9ZmE

 
Furthermore, RIVERSIDE will soon be releasing a digital download version for the first single off “SONGS”: “Celebrity Touch” (artwork pictured on top!) will be available, with an edit-version as b-side, from digital retailers as of December 17th, 2012 in Europe.

RIVERSIDE checked in with the following comment:

The lyrics on the new album deal with different situations we face in our modern times and how we sometimes become enslaved by them and by the style of life they dictate.  For instance, we are dominated and bombarded by increasingly stupefying media. The media, in turn, is dominated by more and more people who are known for their well-knownness... Celebrities, the modern representatives of a need which lies deep within us all and is rarely satisfied - the feeling of importance. This feeling, and some of the dilemmas and complications connected with it, is the subject of our newest single - “Celebrity Touch”. 

Musically, we still try to extend the bridge to connect the new music to the old. In this track we achieved some kind of original mixture and I hope you will enjoy this piece of new album.”

 
 The artwork for the “Celebrity Touch” single as well as for the “SONGS” album was designed once again by Travis Smith /
www.seempieces.com , who has already worked on all the previous releases of the band as well as for artists like Avenged Sevenfold, Devin Townsend, Anathema, Nevermore or Opeth. 


“SONGS” will be released in Europe on January 21st, 2013 and in North America on February 5th, 2013 via InsideOutMusic.

 
The album’s tracklisting reads as follows:

RIVERSIDE – “Shrine Of New Generation Slaves” 

1. New Generation Slave (4:17)
2. The Depth of Self-Delusion (7:39)
3. Celebrity Touch (6:48)
4. We Got Used To Us (4:12)
5. Feel Like Falling (5:17)
6. Deprived [Irretrievably Lost Imagination] (8:26)
7. Escalator Shrine (12:41)
8. Coda (1:39)

 
“Shrine Of New Generation Slaves”

Kreator premiere new video clip

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Watch KREATOR's brand new music video "Civilization Collapse", taken from the full-length album, "Phantom Antichrist", here:


The videoclip is about the riots that took place in Greece most recently.
While researching about said riots the KREATOR art direction team became aware of Marios Lolos, president of the Greek union of journalistic photographers. In the past Greek photographers have become victims to police brutality quite often, and Marios himself barely got out alive out of one these extreme and undemocratical attacks. When KREATOR showed Marios both song and lyrics, he immediately agreed participate by offering parts of his huge photographic archives.
„Civilization Collapse“ was released on 7“ vinyl (retail version: black – cover1 // Nuclear Blast Mailorder only: red, yellow, white – cover2) and as digital download on November 9, 2012 and contains the super rare non-album track, „Wolfchild“, which was released earlier this year on the JOHN SINCLAIR tribute sampler, „Dark Symphonies“.

Candlelight Records signs Demon Lung

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Candlelight Records today confirms the worldwide signing of DEMON LUNG.  The Las Vegas-based quartet, featuring guitarist Phil Burns, basisst Patrick Warren, drummer Jeremy Brenton, and vocalist Shanda Fredrick, is set to begin recording their full-length debut at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA with producer Billy Anderson (Sleep, High on Fire, Eyehategod) in the coming weeks for an anticipated Spring 2013 release date.

Metal Hammer called the band’s self-released 4-song demo Pareidolia, “earthy yet horror-themed doom metal a la Candlemass with an Acrimony groove.”  The magazine calls Fredrick a “wild-eyed, satanic songstress.”  Popular music and film site Ave Noctum notes, “DEMON LUNG has a deft touch and solid sound.  Their music is clearly from the soul.  Fair to say they are a welcomed addition to the ranks of the doomed.”  Teeth of the Divine adds, “Fredrick has the requisite sultry pipes that keep a steady, hazy tone.  She has a deep, bluesy voice that fits the languid music perfectly.”

The band comments, "we are very honored to join the Candlelight roster.  To be included among such talented artists is very humbling, and we thank the great people at Candlelight for giving us the opportunity."

DEMON LUNG has performed alongside Pentagram, High on Fire, Jucifer, Witch Mountain and Castle and will resume performing once recording has been completed.

A video for the song “Lament Code” is available to view at THIS LOCATION.  Directed by Dustin Mills, the mastermind behind The Puppet Monster Massacre.

Follow the band’s ongoing progress at www.facebook.com/demonlungband or their official website at www.demonlungband.com.

Finn Zierler forms new super group

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
After 6 years of absolute silence, Beyond Twilight mastermind Finn Zierler has returned from the shadows with Zierler Projects.

Zierler Projects is a progressive metal super group consisting of:

Finn Zierler - Keyboards (Beyond Twilight)
Bobby Jarzombek – Drums (Rob Halford, Fates Warning, Arch/Matheos, Sebastian Bach, Iced Earth)
Per Nilsson – Guitars and Bass (Scar Symmetry, Kaipa),
Kelly Sundown Carpenter - Vocals (Beyond Twilight, Darkology, Epysode, Outworld)
Truls Haugen – Vocals and Bass live (Insense, Circus Maximus).

Zierler Projects was a closely guarded secret until the first matrix's formation was announced on 26th. November 2012.

Zierler said, "I've had the idea in mind for some time now. All the guys in the matrix are amongst my personal favourites and have been it for years. As with any “supergroup”, bringing together the best talent doesn't mean things will work out - however in this case it did. It's an absolute pleasure to work with each one of these great musicians - on every level.”

Zierler describes the music-
“It’s a journey through my musical moods, sometimes brutal, nightmarishly technical, crushingly dark and very progressive. The performances on this album are simply inhuman, just a smashing and fantastic job by everyone involved.”

Silverstein premiere album trailer

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Hopeless Records and Silverstein are very excited to announce their 7th studio full length album "This Is How The Wind Shifts "- a concept album that includes 14 brand new tracks and will be released February 5, 2013.

The idea of this album is how a persons life can change forever with just one event. It is the "what if" that everyone thinks about from time to time.
This album is different from a typical start to finish story concept album, or an album where all the songs have a common theme. Each track has a parallel track that tells the story in a different light, what would have happened if things were different due toa single event. The song titles of each parallel track go together, forming a sentence or in some cases two words that relate to each other and to the story. Overall,the point of this album is not to prove the existence of fate, or to disprove it. It's a discussion of life, of loss, of trial and error, of success within failure, of failure within success, of the struggle between your actions and your feelings, and how those don't always go together. This Is How The Wind Shifts is a journey that jumps around but stays cohesive, with underlying meaning and stories that have a real human meaning and cater to the soul. ” – Vocalist Shane Told

View the album trailer here:

Man The Machetes' new album out Jan. 29th

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Man The Machetes release the new album “Idiokrati” January 29th in Europe and January 25th in G/A 2013. Check out the studio report from the recording of the new album HERE!

The single ”Mageplask” is now available on YouTube and Spotify!

The album presents music that balances delicately between an uncompromising, but accessible sound. The pace is high from the beginning to the very end, yet the listener is bombarded with melodies and catchy guitar riffs in a soundscape that is borderline rock and metal. If you add screaming vocals, a thumping, but melodic bass and intense drums, you are closing in on a good description of Man the Machetes' debut album "Idiokrati".
