The song 'Children of Violence,' originally from the first demo EP 'Chaos Possession' from 2010, is one of the band's earliest creations and holds almost symbolic significance for us and our early companions! Now, it is released exclusively as a live version on AFM Records! The 'Chaos Possession' EP is in very few hands and is practically unavailable anywhere. That’s why it was especially important for us to release a fresh version of 'Children of Violence' as a special gift to our loyal fans and supporters!

Those pieces define us.” Finally, Andrew "Boz" Bozymowski says: “Musically, it’s going to take you through some of the heaviest parts, poppiest parts, and most technical parts we’ve ever done. It has our longest song and the most tracks we’ve recorded. It’s an amalgamation of different things. Even though it explores opposite extremes, you find a way out of it with some type of positivity.” ...

... WORSHIPPER have released a video for their track, "Heroic Dose." Says the band's John Brookhouse: “This is the last song we wrote for the record, and probably the most personal for me. I lost my dad in 2022, and one of the last conversations we had was about his time in Vietnam. As I was writing the lyrics for the song, I realized I had all of these great stories that he told me about that whole time period. Essentially, he flunked out of college, and in the midst of a “spirit journey” realized he needed to enroll in the Army to avoid being drafted. I can’t even imagine being faced with that decision. I made a bunch of war sounds with a Moog and a theremin that my dad gave me and gave them to our producer, Alec Rodriguez, who just nailed the sound design, especially when mixed with all the acid fuzz freakout stuff at the end over Jarvis’s excellent drum fills.” Check out "Heroic Dose" by clicking here: http://youtu.be/47ADpjHGolA?si=E_TQz5BHUJvckLjo ...

Haha). I personally think we could've just had this mixed, because most of it was recorded and produced exactly the same way.

Civilization is fed up and is starting to point all in one direction and coming together to get answers on why they are shaking the cage. ‘Fight’ is really based on the battle scenes from ‘Starship Troopers’, a battle between bugs and humans.” You can check out the videos here: http://youtu.be/WrnDYxgS220?si=Lwc4TG2s3aSiopwH and here: http://youtu.be/91w6uZLZpu8?si=vAdAR3K0Q3r7xNp9 ...

Says the band: "We are so excited to finally share this documentary we have been working on for years with you. The film captures our journey of navigating the world of music, showing the highlights, the hardships, and everything in between." Adds the film's director Ken Belcher: “After six years of traveling with, living with, and filming the ALIEN WEAPONRY family, to finally be able to share that with audiences and showcase Māori culture in a vibrant and heartfelt way is just so rewarding. To have my first film as director premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival is an absolute dream come true. What makes our film is the family aspect. The ups and downs, the strains of being on the road with your family and then pulling through because you’ve all got a common goal. They’re an amazing, powerful group of people and they’ve taught me a hell of a lot. I’m so privileged to be part of this. I can’t put into words how lucky I am to have met these people, be able to film these people, and then being able to learn stuff about myself. It has honestly been the best experience of my life."

... SOULFLY "Healer" coffee will soon be available. The unique product will be grown and harvested by indigenous women of Central America and distributed by Concept Cafes who said: "We’d been kicking around the idea of the official Soulfly coffee with Gloria Cavalera for a while, and after hearing such overwhelmingly impactful stories from the Tribe, and listening to the fans tell their own personal stories of how Soulfly’s music had helped them though some serious times in their lives , we all we’re like this is it, this is the Soulfly story that needs to be told. The challenge (which we always embrace) then becomes taking this massive collective experience and fitting it into this small package, and literally breathing life into it. So, like always, we take a serious deep dive into the complete discog for weeks, months, until this one unifying concept strikes a heavy emotional chord with everyone. The only way to describe ‘Healer’ in my personal opinion is ‘hypnotic’, and if you don’t believe me, just download the image as your mobile screen for about a week or a month. All we can say right now is…more to come." ...

What they all had in common was melodies, a big chorus, and plenty of eyeliner, with all that sensuality. That was what that era was all about.

... SABÏRE will release their album, "Jatt," on June 28th. If that needs some explaining, the band's Scarlett Monastyrski says: "'JÄTT' is meant to be THE sound of SABÏRE. A monolith to what we stand for artistically. We wanted this album to be its own art piece rather than simply a collection of arbitrary songs, a really 'blue' colored sound. The physical copies hold beautifully styled texts detailing the concept for those chosen songs, as well as small epistles to accompany each track. 'JÄTT' is a “blue” sounding album; the color. You may understand that more when listening to the album yourself. The cover of 'JÄTT', Dante and Virgil in the Ninth Circle of Hell - Gustav Doré, 1861, could be seen through a symbolic lens in which the listener is symbolized as Dante, the artist as Virgil, and the bodies locked within the ice of frozen lake as the music surrounding them; we as the artist are shepherding the listener through the mire. This could be perceived like this, or you may just see it as an attractive album cover." Scarlett continues: "We put our heart and soul into this one and can't wait to give our Wild Ones and Acid Fiends what they've been so patiently waiting for."

... HEARTS & HAND GRENADES have released a video for the title track for their new album, "Our Darkest Night." Says the band's Stephanie Wlosinski: "This video tries to tell a story from the photograph in which the song is about. The photo contains an image of an apocalyptic time which is the result of an ongoing war. As the story unfolds, the aftermath of the destruction becomes more and more apparent. We felt this song was a great song to tell a story based on something as simple as a photograph. By looking at it, you have to wonder what happened in the background? How did everything die? Why is this person smiling with nothing to smile about?” Adds guitarist Mike Bress: “This is our first concept video. We dipped our toes into something a bit different in that none of the band members are in the video. We try to tell the story with short cut scenes of how life would exist after everything is destroyed. By doing this, we are trying to convey that foolish wars will eventually bring on a world where a once lush earth becomes a desolate wasteland as a result. Living will be almost impossible.” Check out the video by clicking here: http://youtu.be/2tMz0KQXMHs?si=mXZpZjfiSAG-i2lL ...

... SKID ROW have announced that Erik Grönwall is leaving the band in an amicable departure. Says Erik: “I got the opportunity to join this incredible band six months after my treatment against leukemia. And one month after that I was on a world tour with Skid fucking Row. Wow! It was a dream come true. However, it proved challenging touring the world with an impaired immune system, which is a result of my bone marrow transplant. I respect and understand that Skid Row is a touring band but since I can’t prioritize my health being in the band, I have decided that it’s better for me to step aside. I love Skid Row, I have nothing but respect for the guys in the band but I love and respect my health more. I’m getting stronger and healthier every day but after consulting my doctor I need to allow myself more time to recover, which I can’t do as the lead singer of Skid Row. That’s why I have reached the tough decision to move on. I want to thank the guys for this incredible opportunity. And I want to thank all the Skid Row fans who accepted me as the lead singer of this iconic band. Health first!” Adds the band: “Skid Row is proud of what they have created and accomplished with Erik over the past two years and we wish nothing but the best to him and his health. To celebrate the last two years the band will be releasing a live album that perfectly captures this moment of time in the band’s 35+ year history, to be announced soon."

Not many bands can say that, and out of the ones that can, not many of those can say they are currently at their creative, artistic, and commercial peaks. Yet Fozzy can and we are damn proud of it! That's why we are so excited to bring our 25th anniversary celebration to your city over the next 18 months, starting in October. We have built a reputation of being a band you don't wanna miss, and we take great pride in that because it’s the truth! So, as always, crank up the music, buy your tickets early, and wear a helmet. Because this is our 25th Year Rock 'N' Roll Party…and we aren't f'ing around. See you soon!" For more information, check out http://fozzyrock.com/ ...

Says producer Bob Katsionis about the symphonic/power metal release: "Just when I thought Elina (Englezou) was taking some time off from the stressful period recording and releasing her debut, 'Goditha,' I received a wetransfer with a folder reading 'Captain Hawk' featuring some mp3 demos. I pressed 'play' and in less than 10 minutes time I called her up and asked her: 'What, on Earth, is this thing you sent me? Is it your new album? When do we start?' One thing I admire about her, besides her songwriting skills and constant flow of inspiration, is her persistence; no one can tell this lady 'you can't do this or that.' Once again, she wrote everything on her own, gathered, arranged and recorded all these wonderful singers, wrote all the choir parts and made all the artworks, videos, booklet and LP designs. And, here we are today with our second baby pirate ready to sail!" For more information, check out http://captainhawk.bandcamp.com/album/ghosts-of-the-sea ...

Says Mark about the new video: "In the 'I Wanna Be More' video we wanted to capture the high energy we bring to this song when we play it live. We shot the video on Long Island, New York. It was directed by the incredibly talented Tom Flynn. Tom translated our energy to video perfectly. When you combine a big empty room with a full-band set-up, a couple of beers, a smoke machine, and a projector with some cool effects, you get the perfect performance music video. We can't wait for everyone to see the results!" Check out the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pogjiNpJPWY ...

The last few years have been tough for the underground, we swam against a tsunami of nonsensical bullshit and still managed not to drown. It's just like a stew, we all know that the scum always rises to the top... And here we are! We decided to turn up the 'not giving a fuck' knob to 11, stepped out of our rusty dumpster, gave it a spit-shine and lit the fucker on fire. We went 'full DIY' on the cover artwork. We grabbed a shit-ton of Hochelaga alley dirt, junk, slutch and dumped it on our saloon floor, made a concoction of 'fake' blood and proceeded to surgically etch the Dopethrone logo on this stinking putrid pile. We also made all our videos with no budget and full dedication. Passion is known to exceed the norms of expectation, but we're not passionate, we're obsessed, so you better buckle up."

But alas, it would be inevitable that one day the kiss of Judas would land on his lips and the cold steel of the evil ones would thrust forward and penetrate the heart drawing the blood of death.

... SENTRY is the new band featuring former members of MANILLA ROAD, formed five years after the death of the band's Mark Shelton. Their self-titled debut, on High Roller Records, will be released on March 1st. Wondering why the band didn't continue as Manilla Road? Phil Ross explains: “You can't fault anyone for taking note of the personnel in Sentry. Three of us were in the band when Mark passed away, and all four of us spearheaded the Manilla tribute show at Keep It True in 2019. To share that closure on stage at KIT with some of Mark's closest friends and admirers (the other members in the tribute show) also helped us close this chapter in our lives. We don't need to pretend we are something we are not, we simply wish to be ourselves within this new band. To move on in this group and write new material and try to call it Manilla Road would have been absurd, and it's not anything we ever thought about. If you ask anyone in Sentry, they will tell you that Manilla Road was Mark Shelton, plain and simple." For more information, check out http://sentrymetal.company.site ...

... The legendary ACCEPT will release their next album on April 26th. Says the band about the new first single, "Humanoid": "The song plays with the omnipresent topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In a strange way, we have entered exciting times now… This digital revolution has a huge impact, probably bigger than anything humankind has ever gone through. The Industrial Revolution was huge, but this might be even bigger, and we're just at the beginning of it. However, I'm also a little afraid that humanity gets lost and pushed aside in all this stuff. The song is pretty impactful and provoking!” You can check out the video for the title track by clicking here: https://youtu.be/LYPFFZFBBYY?si=DpHgMb2lvHe8S-Ua ...

... "Heavy Blues" artists BIRDSTONE have released their latest video for a track entitled "Méandres." Says the band about the new track: "The second single from Birdstone's new chapter, inaugurated with the release of 'Hotline' in November 2023, 'Méandres' is an emotional journey into loss and nostalgia, painting vivid images of faded memories and broken bonds. Locked away in intimacy and the daily routine, the reconstruction process is depicted here like an introspective maze from which one must find the way out. Through the meanders of writing, memories are anchored in order to pursue the quest for acceptance and renewal. I'll never be the same."

As much as I go on about the polarised state of the world, it’s a minority creating this toxic environment that a lot of us have to live in. So, there's a positive message from this - it shouldn't, it doesn't have to lead to this. I’m so proud of this album and song. I just can't wait to get out there and sing it.

From the legendary guitar solo, through the vocals and amazing audio production by Jacob Hansen to a real music video, we are bringing the full experience.

We felt like we got the label of being a thrash metal band, and it was restrictive. We couldn’t do certain things because they wouldn’t be considered thrash! But it was a good time, during the pandemic, because there was no media, no press, and I didn’t check emails and stuff, so we were free. I would write a riff and I didn’t care if it was thrash metal or not. It was a good time to really find out who I am as a guitar player and as a singer, and I took the time to really find it out and then we made the record. So there is a change in style, but it’s 100 percent us, perhaps more than ever.” For more information, check out http://www.dustbolt.net ...
