… Canada’s WOODHAWK will release their new album, “Violent Nature,” on November 1st. The band—who are said to appeal to fans of Black Sabbath, The Sword, Clutch, Truckfighters, Priestess, Mastodon, Red Fang, Thin Lizzy, etc.—say the album is a step away from the science fiction themes explored on their last album, “Beyond the Sun,” saying “On previous efforts, we wrote from a science fiction standpoint. It’s where we all were at, at the point in our lives and reflected what we wanted to say and represent. Now, we believe in honesty and find the therapeutic side of music. This album has been an expressive honest view into our lives over the past 2 years.” In addition to the new album, the band has teamed up with New Level Brewing to create a Violent Nature Beer, which will launch on November 2nd during a party at the Brewery. The band will tour in support of the new album. Dates and places include: Oct 25 - Vancouver, BC - Railway Club; Oct 26 - Kamloops, BC - Pogue Mahones; Nov 2 - Beer Launch Party - New Level Brewing in Calgary (Beer release party!); Nov 8 - Calgary, AB - Palomino (Album Release Show); Nov 9 - Edmonton, AB - Temple w/ The Wild! …

… MORTIIS has announced the release of a new album later this year. “Spirit of Rebellion” is described as “a re-interpreted expansion and continuation of the 1994 Era I classic “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør” and will be released on CD, vinyl and digital. Says Mortiis of the new release: "I had to fend off a lot of demons to get to this point. They’ll be back, they always come back, but at least my vision is no longer clouded...When I was working on re-interpreting my old music for the Cold Meat Industry festival in Stockholm almost two years ago, I had no idea that I´d eventually create an (almost) new record, nor that a section of it would be used for my first Dungeon Synth video since 1996. But here we are.” Mortiis will tour in support of the new album beginning in early 2020. For dates and tickets, check out https://smarturl.it/MortiisTickets …

Many of their nominees don't make sense (Whitney Houston?) and their exclusion of important band members (i.e, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee of MOTORHEAD) is insulting and childishly punitive. We won't waste space here discussing this year's nominees ...

... METALLICA will be playing several U.S. Festivals next year—their only festival performances for that period—but that’s not the big news. The big news is that they’ll be playing TWO sets at each show. At the Epicenter, Welcome to Rockville, Sonic Temple, Louder Than Life and Aftershock Festivals, Metallica will perform two separate headlining sets. These events will be the only chance to see Metallica at a U.S. festival in 2020. In addition, each set that Metallica plays will be unique. In other words, there’s potential there for ten different shows. Tickets are now on sale. For more information, check out www.MetallicaXX.com …

… ALIGN THE TIDE has unleashed their new single, “Blacklist” the first from their new album “Dead Religion,” which will be available on October 18. Says vocalist/guitarist Kyle Farrugia about the new single: “This song speaks of nothing personal, but takes a rather different perspective: the one of a mercenary; a hired gun. Despite it not being inspirational or lacking any emotional meaning to the track, the guitars, drums and vocals turn it up to 11 in terms of rhythm and groove. The crazy energy that we unleash when performing could only describe it profoundly. ‘Blacklist’ is one of the best songs on the record and is considered as a favorite by many people who have heard us play it live.” You can check out the track at Apple Music, Spotify or YouTube now …

... Despite some hard times (commented on below), ALAZKA have just released a brand new song, "Dead End." Says the band: "First of, we’d like to apologize to all of you for being so quiet and leaving you in the dark for so long. The reason for this is something that hit us pretty hard and took a lot of time for us to deal with it. It’s with heavy hearts that we have to announce that we’ve parted ways with Dario and Kassim. They came to a point where they realized that they and us just don’t share the same vision anymore regarding the music we make and the way we see this band’s future. There is no bad blood and we wish them all the best for and all the love for their future endeavors. Please respect that this was their own, free decision and that this is, what we all feel, is best for everyone. Here’s our brand new single "Dead End." It’s a song about inevitable change and the way you can decide how you want to deal with it. We all come to points in our lives where things need to happen and it’s up to us to try to run away from it or face it head on."

Not only did we write songs and record albums, we also managed the band, looked after the merchandise, sent demos to clubs and booked vans. Then there were a few years with record companies and agencies involved to support us. Today we’re back to the beginning, we’ve come full circle.” ...

...KORN has finally, officially announced their new album, "The Nothing," and have released the first single: "You'll Never Find Me." The new album will be released on September 13th via Roadrunner Records. Says the band's Jonathan Davis of "The Nothing": “Deep, within our Earth lives an extraordinary force. Very few are aware of the magnitude and significance of this place where good/evil, dark/light, bliss/torment, loss/gain and hope/despair all exist as one- pulling at us every moment of our lives. It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this ‘presence’ that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment. It’s the place where black and white energies attach themselves to our souls, and shape our emotion, choices, perspective and ultimately our very existence. There is a miraculous and small realm within this vortex and it’s the only place where balance between these dynamic and polarizing forces exists — where the soul finds its refuge. Welcome to…..THE NOTHING.” ...

The band--influenced by traditional Ukrainian folk music, metal tunes and modern electronica--released the following statement about the new album: “For the album we recorded ancient instruments: dulcimer, ocarina and throat singing, combined with modern technologies, new instruments and analog sound. This album is like our child, it grew, it learnt and became stronger and stronger. Every piece of the album is saturated with the mystical nature of Ukraine. We wrote most of the songs in our hometown Lutsk - the mystical center of Ukraine. The power of the region remained and still is the same for ages. We have prepared the album for many years and are very excited to finally present it via Napalm Records.” …

You can check out the first single over at Nerdist at https://nerdist.com/article/ned-flanders-metal-band-okilly-dokilly-bulletproof-glass/. Says the bands Head Ned: "Us Neds are quite safety-oriented fellows. When we recorded 'Bulletproof Glass', we used extreme caution to make sure every brutalino note was captured on the recording and didn't breach studio containment. Each member wore a full hazmat suit and we managed to keep casualties to a minimum. Our safety inspector did fall asleep on the job and Shred Ned's solo melted three faces, but otherwise, all particles of rock and/or roll were well contained. We're very excited to release 'Bulletproof Glass' and we hope it's something everyone can cautiously thrash to." …

Says Norman of the upcoming release: “'As Strange As Angels' is a story with many chapters - each chapter needed to be given its own soundtrack. Whatever felt right, I ran with…. I didn’t care about genre and labels. I just needed a vessel to call my own as a mechanism to communicate what I was thinking and feeling. I’m so thankful for all the amazing people who have helped me bring this release to life. Those who picked me up along the way never gave up and never stopped believing in me. Plenty of people let go at a time when I needed them the most. But I channeled that and let it fuel me. I took a step back and learned how to live life again. 'As Strange As Angels' is a testament to that - a gift in many ways. I owe much of myself to all those that kept my blood flowing and my heart going - and I owe all of myself to my son.” …

Says the band: “The joke about the winter outfits of Straytones band members turned into the idea about two cartoon characters and that’s exactly how the Dark Lord and the Bell-Man came into being. We wanted to create a garage-rock opera to uncover fictional story of an evil mastermind Dark Lord who obtains a powerful artifact and travels to meta-space to become invincible. Eventually he gets overpowered by the irrational, chaotic and odd Bell-Man whom he encounters there. By defeating Dark Lord, Bell-Man suddenly saves the world and brings back harmony and ballance. Cartoon depicts first part of this story and release in general”....
