… Former MURDER FM front man Norman Matthew has released the first single from his new entity, AS STRANGE AS ANGELS. The complete EP drops on April 26th. 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.” …

The movement toward more controlling, all-powerful governments continues to grow and the current nightmarish situation in Venezuela is emblematic of the direction our world is sadly heading in.

...The STRAYTONES have released their new EP, "Beware, Dark Lord! Here comes Bell-Man." The EP is the third release of the Ukrainian psychedelic rock outfit and will P will be supported by a cartoon music video that follows the story told throughout release. 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”....

... KILLSWITCH ENGAGE is partnering with PARKWAY DRIVE on a massive co-headline tour entitled "Collapse the World." The tour begins in April 2019 in San Francisco and continues through May, ending in Milwaukee. The trek will take place in Spring 2019, kicking off on April 18 in San Francisco and running through May 16 in Milwaukee. Says Jesse Leach of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE: "After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn't be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States. Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you. I am absolutely certain fans of both bands are in for a hell of a time. This will be one for the memories for sure — let's rage!" Adds Parkway Drive's Winston McCall: "This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes. We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KSE their entire career. The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me. Bring on the insanity!" Mind-blowing?

…Bassist Aaron Sluss is no longer in SEVEN KINGDOMS. Said the band in a press release: “Today we would like to announce a member change in Seven Kingdoms. We have parted ways with Aaron. It's obviously not easy choice to make, but this decision is what we found necessary to continue moving forward. We wish him the very best with his other projects and want to thank him for the last 8 years of dedication and hard work! As one door closes, another opens. We would like to welcome John Tyler McDaniel, who will be stepping in as a full time replacement on Bass. Tyler has been a dear friend of the band for a very long time and he will keep that low-end fat and tight for the foreseeable future. You may know him from his other band Monotheist (Prosthetic Records). We are very excited to get this new lineup on the road and will be announcing new North American dates soon!” Adds John Tyler McDaniel: "When I first learned about the band in 2011 I thought what a pro band! I wish I could only be in something as legitimate as Seven Kingdoms one day. Over the next years, I was lucky enough to become very close friends with everybody in the band. They helped me through a rough time and took me out under their wings in 2013 on the Stratovarius and Amaranthe European Tour. It really showed what kind of amazing people they are. I immediately wanted to return that feeling. Over the years I've been involved from everything from the backyard BBQs all the way to being an assistant engineer on “Decennium.” When the time came for change, I don't think there was any hesitation on mine or the bands part to ask me to step in. I have some big shoes to fill and I plan to give it all I got, on and off stage. I think it's a new chapter for everyone and I know I'm super excited to see what we can do!"

...ORANGE GOBLIN will release their new CD, "The Wolf Bites Back," this week. Says frontman Ben Ward: “Sometimes you just have to make a statement and I believe that this album is that statement. We just wanted a title that represents the feelings we tried to get across with the material on the album and it seemed to fit perfectly. It’s vicious, it’s dangerous, it’s wild and it’s unashamedly heavy metal and hard rocking! A lot of bands seem to be ashamed to say that these days, there are too may hipsters and posers that are afraid of the heavy metal tag yet like to revel in the imagery. Fuck that, people should be proud to be heavy metal!” Get your copy of "The Wolf Bites Back" today. Review coming soon on RoughEdge.com...

…TREAT will release their new album on September 14th through Frontiers Music Srl. The new album is entitled ”Tunguska” and if you’re wondering what the hell that is, it’s a reference to a mysterious explosion that took place in Siberia in 1908. Says the band’s guitarist/producer Anders Wikstrom, the new CD ”highlights the unique musicianship we have developed together over the years in the creative songwriting process, but also illustrates how we want our albums to sound and feel in the 21st century. We managed to dig deeper into the lyrical content, and musically, the dynamics in the songs and production are more distinct as we let heavy, raunchy stuff co-exist with the softer side of the band.” For more information, check out https://www.facebook.com/treatofficial/...
