New Dunderbeist album done

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
The new Dunderbeist album is finally done; it has taken the hard-hitting Norwegian quintet two years of blood, sweat and tears. The result is exceptionally complex in its simplicity, still keeping their snappy hooks and tongue in cheek humor. The album “Hyklere” (Eng.: Hypocrites) presents you a ripened Dunderbeist sound, a dive into the darker aspects of life. Brutal and honest, their most personal and greatest work to date! «Hyklere» will be out on March 2nd!

As traditions are, Dunderbeist will hold their release concert on Gregers in their hometown Hamar (NOR)! The date is set to the 28th of Feb! Two tickets-bundles are available for the release concert: you can get a ticket + «Hyklere» CD, or ticket + «Hyklere» LP.

Pre-orders of «Hyklere» CD, LP and clear blue LP, and the ticket bundles for the release concert are all available on dunderbeist.indierecorings.no now!

As the artwork perfectly illustrates, its theme spins around human’s dark inner. The new album is mixed by Vincent Sorg (Kreator, Die Toten Hosen, Oslo Ess) and all lyrics are in Dunderbeist’s native tongue, with its raw and brutally honest touch from their local woodlands of inner Norway.

New Stormhunter album out now!

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Brand new, third studio album of the German Power/Heavy Metal act titled "An Eye For An I" is out now, and includes 12 songs kept in best German Metal tradition, with both catchy melodies and choruses, and aggressive vocals. If you are into classic acts such as Running Wild, or you like early Angel Dust or Helloween records, then Stormhunter plays for you.

Stormhunter is a German Heavy Metal band, founded in 1998 by guitar players Stefan Müller and Achim Heinzelmann. After releasing first demo tape "First Battle" in 2001 and several concerts, Stormhunter appeared on two compilations: "The Reaper Comes" (Heavy Horses Records) and "United We Are" (Métal Intégral). In 2002, after several line up changes, Stefan Müller (last founding member), decided to leave the band - other members took new direction after changing band's name to Subsphere.

In 2007 Stefan Müller reactivated the band, and wrote bunch of songs in the classic German Heavy/Power Metal style, that landed on band's debut album "Stormhunter" from 2009. The line up at that time was: Frank Urschler (vocals), Andreas Kiechle (drums), Julia Weiss (guitar), Denno (bass) and Stefan Müller (guitar). The same line up (without Denno who was replaced by session bass player), recorded second album titled "Crime And Punishment", which was released in 2011 by Emanes Metal Records in Europe and Spiritual Beast Records in Japan. In 2011 Burkhard Ulrich joined as the bass player, to later switch positions with guitarist Julia, who shortly after that left the band due to personal reasons. Her place was filled by Fritz, bass player from German Thrash Metal act Nuclear Warfare, who also supported the band in the past as live musician.

Kill Ritual: Free download

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
SF BAY AREA Thrash’N’Rollers KILL RITUAL have made the unreleased track “Drop Dead Gorgeous” available for free download and streaming on SoundCloud and ReverbNation. The song comes off their 2014 release ‘The Eyes Of Medusa‘ as a thank you to all the fans that have supported the band the last few years. The song was recorded at Fossil Sound and engineered/produced by KILL RITUAL guitarist Steve Rice.

https://soundcloud.com/killritualmetal/drop-dead-gorgeous

Mr. Rice comments on the tune, “This track reflects a little different style for the band in some ways as it starts off very deceivingly with a ballad type intro, but gets to the Metal fairly quickly after that. It’s a nice tongue in cheek tale of the kind of girl you’d like to take home, but wish you hadn’t!”

In other KILL RITUAL news the band will complete the mixing and mastering the new album in March 2015 with Andy LaRocque handling the job at his Sonic Train Studios once again. The band expects a Summer 2015 release of the yet untitled CD.

KILL RITUAL are:
Steve Rice – Lead Guitar
Josh Crimson – Vocals
Danyael Williams – Bass

COBURN PHARR to join ANNIHILATOR on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2015

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
70000TONS OF METAL is proud to announce that ANNIHILATOR mastermind
Jeff Waters has invited ex-vocalist COBURN PHARR to feature in their
performances when The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise sails to
Jamaica in January 2015. Pharr was lead vocalist on ANNIHILATOR's
critically acclaimed and best-selling 1990 release “Never,
Neverland” which includes classics such as “Road To Ruin”, “I
Am In Command”, “Reduced To Ash” and “Phantasmagoria”.

Waters comments: “Seeing as how it is the 25th Anniversary of my
favorite ANNIHILATOR album, I thought it would be a lot of fun to
invite Coburn with us to perform some of the songs he was a part of. I
haven't seen him since 1992 so I think the fans are going to spot us
having lots of conversations about the old days (and my 80's hair
style)! Current ANNIHILATOR vocalist Dave Padden is very much looking
forward to this as he is a huge fan of that album and Coburn, but also
because he won't have to play and sing those songs hahaha...!”

Jeff Waters will also be hosting JAMMING WITH WATERS IN INTERNATIONAL
WATERS All-Star Jam which will feature members from the 60 bands on
board 70000TONS OF METAL 2015, which includes ARCH ENEMY,

Extol documentary on Norwegian TV

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
“EXTOL: OF LIGHT AND SHADE” DOCUMENTARY TO BE BROADCASTED ON NOR TV!

The well-established Christian death metal band Extol can look back on a great career including Nor Grammy nomination, several US tours, top CD-sales and national recognition in press and music scene. In April they release the documentary "Extol: Of Light And Shade"; the story of a band split in paradox between two worlds, Christianity and death metal. The film has been shown at various film festivals the past summer, and it will now be broadcasted on Norwegian TV channel NRK2, Dec 27!

Being strong believers in a music scene dominated by atheists and anti-religious practitioners creates some challenges. Extol, with its Christian content and death metal expression, has hence experienced its share of difficult situations and obstruction. Christians react with disgust on the aesthetics and effects the band uses, while the secular fraction of the music scene shows great dissatisfaction regarding the lyrical themes. On one side, local churches organized bonfire sessions of Extol products and held prayer meetings against the band, whilst on the other side they’ve experienced bomb threats from self-appointed Satanists before a gig, getting spat at and scorned.

After 6 releases with success, 2007 was the start of a five year long break for Extol due to the vocalists strong tinnitus and anxiety. The documentary gives an insight on tinnitus and anxiety where the singer speaks openly about some of the challenges he experienced in 2007 and the years that followed. Questions about faith and freedom of speech set in a musical perspective are also important topics. The film does also illustrate the band's position in the Norwegian music scene and their international position. Eyvind Skeie, Hank von Helvete, now deceased Pater Arnfinn Haram and the charismatic American rock pastor Bob Beeman are some of the characters we meet in "Extol: Of Light And Shade."

Right before the peaceful days of Christmas, Finland-based symphonic metal members of NIGHTWISH want to share some important news with everyone. On March 27th (EU), 30th (UK) and 31st (US), the long expected new studio album will be released, entitled »Endless Forms Most Beautiful«.

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”

- Charles Darwin, »The Origin Of Species«


“This classic quote is where it all began. We set sail for the ultimate journey in March 2015, join us!”, adds Tuomas Holopainen secretly.

The detailed cover-artwork was created by longtime collaborator Toxic Angel.

»Endless Forms Most Beautiful« features eleven new songs and will be released in different formats:
  • Standard CD
  • Digibook (incl. instrumental CD)
  • 2LP (vinyl in gatefold) in different colours
  • Earbook (incl. instrumental and orchestral CD)
  • Earbook (deluxe version incl. bonus vinyl)

»Endless Forms Most Beautiful« will be the first NIGHTWISH studio album to feature Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen. Longtime drummer Jukka Nevalainen will sit out on the recording sessions due to health issues; Kai Hahto (WINTERSUN a.o.) will replace him.

ONHEIL - New animated video available & Celebrating 15 years

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk


Dutch Blackened Heavy/Thrash Metal band ONHEIL publishes the title track of their latest album 'Storm Is Coming'. The song is accompanied by an animated video based on the album cover and booklet artwork. 'Storm Is Coming' was released last September by German record label Cyclone Empire.




As the title hints, the most important lyrical theme of the album is the destructive force of extreme weather phenomena. The artwork for the animation was created by the GrimTwins Studios which then was animated by vocalist/guitarist Amok. He comments: “We always try to offer something extra with our artwork and music videos, to give a bit more insight in what the songs are about. Our album booklets are always full of artwork related to the songs, making our lyrical concepts more visual and hopefully spark the imagination of the listener. Now with this animated video we want to bring our songs even more to life!”

ONHEIL is currently celebrating their 15 year anniversary. Fans and supporters are asked to follow the band on their Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/OnheilMusic ) where rare photographs, video footage and stories will be shared on a weekly basis, even dating back from the mid 90's. Beside that there will be a fan meet-up on the 20th of December 2014 at rock bar 't Avontuur in their hometown of Dordrecht.

During 2015 there will be more events to celebrate their 15 years of ONHEIL and to give more insight into the history of the band.



The album 'Storm Is Coming' was produced and mixed by Bart Hennephof (TEXTURES) and Yuma van Eekelen (Ex-PESTILENCE) at the Final Focus Studios, The Netherlands. The mastering was done by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studios, Sweden (WATAIN, DESTRÖYER 666). The album booklet holds 16 pages of high-quality artwork of which a large part is done by an upcoming artist of the GrimTwins Studios (DEICIDE).
