SANCTUARY – announce “Inception” album details and launch trailer

Century Media Records and legendary US metal act SANCTUARY have set February 24th, 2017 as the release date of Inception, the official prequel to 1988’s classic debut “Refuge Denied”.
unnamedInception contains presumed lost 1986 studio recordings, which guitarist Lenny Rutledge discovered recently and which were magically restored, remixed and remastered by Zeuss (Queensrÿche, Hatebreed). You can watch the first video trailer here.
Guitarist Lenny Rutledge comments: “I found the masters in my barn. The second floor of the barn is on top of our current recording studio and is very rough and open to the elements. The ground level is where we recorded the bulk of ‘The Year The Sun Died’. We found the masters in an unknown box in the barn, full of water and just wasting away.
Zeuss explains further how the Inception album was realized: “I got a call one day and Lenny said that he had discovered these tapes and had them transferred to digital. I was in the area and stopped over to check it out. The recordings were still in decent shape. We agreed that we wanted it to sound as good as possible without taking away from the original vibe and vision of what the band had back then. After a year of mixing on and off we were able to resurrect these original demos. I hope everyone enjoys these recordings as much as I did working on them especially being a huge fan myself.
Recorded in March of 1986 (“Soldiers Of Steel”, “Battle Angels”) at Triad Studios in Redmond, Washington and Studio One in White Center between April and July 1986, Inception offers such previously unreleased highlights as “Dream of The Incubus” and “I Am Insane” as well as several classic Refuge Denied songs that are burning with fervour and intensity.
Apart from being expanded by art courtesy of Ed Repka, Inception is filled to the brim with tons of rare photos, flyers, early art designs, sketches plus detailed liner notes allowing you to delve deep into SANCTUARY’s history.
Inception will be released as Gatefold LP on 180 gram black and limited colored vinyl, includes an extensive LP-size booklet, poster, and the album on CD as additional extra. Apart from that it will be available as Special Edition CD Digipak and digital album.
Lenny concludes: “For me personally, I just wanted fans to be able to hear proper versions of the demos. They had a certain energy that was captured during the early days, maybe even more so than “Refuge Denied”. It’s no secret that you can find these on the internet but the quality is horrible. I think most people are under the impression that these are remastered or re-recorded versions of Refuge…”, but this is all a prequel!
With several European festivals already booked for next year, a new album in the works, Inception being released, 2017 shall be the year when past and future of SANCTUARY unite. Look forward to the next assault of the soldiers of steel!

WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE Performance Set For April 27

Dear friends,

 

It is with a heavy heart that we share this news with you today: Our two brothers Cris ‘Pizza’ Migliore and Cristiano ‘CriZ’ Mozzati have decided to retire from LACUNA COIL.

 

Both Pizza and CriZ have had big changes impact their lives recently – we know how stressful and difficult it can be to balance both real life and the life of a professional touring musician, and we have nothing but total respect for their decisions to focus on their families and lives at home.

 

We have such incredible memories of traveling and exploring the world together with Pizza and CriZ, and we want to wish them both all the best as they begin these exciting new chapters in their lives. We will never forget the important roles they played in this band, or the incredible times we shared together. 

 

THANK YOU PIZZA AND CRIZ! WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!

 

Cristina, Andrea, Marco, and Maus.

LACUNA COIL

From Pizza: 

 

Dear friends,

 

After over 16 years spent with the LACUNA COIL family, I decided to move on and begin a new chapter in my life. This hasn’t been an easy decision, as you can imagine, but I felt like I needed to change some things around.

 

I’m glad and honored that I’ve had the chance to be able to embark on such an amazing adventure, with such wonderful people as “travel companions”! I will never forget my time in LACUNA COIL and I wish my sister and brothers all the best for whatever the future may bring. 

 

I’m sure you understand! I would also really like to thank every single one of you for showing such amazing love and support for a small band from Milan, Italy, who would’ve never thought would become what it has during these incredible 16 years. Thank you all and enjoy this last record we did with me and CriZ as part of the line-up – it’s some of the best music we’ve done and I’m sure you’ll love it!

 

Keep on rockin’!!

 

Cris ‘Pizza’ Migliore

 

 

From CriZ: 

 

Hey Coilers,

 

As many of you guys and gals know, during this last year lots of very important things happened in my life – something really amazing, and deep enough to make me sit in front of my laptop to write these bittersweet words…

 

I’m leaving my “second family” LACUNA COIL because I need this change in my life… this hasn’t been an easy decision at all and I’ve come to it with pain in my heart, because together we laughed and cried; we fought and gave all our lives to this amazing band. Together we lived the dream for 16 wonderful, intense and unforgettable years. All you guys around the world gave me such positive and sincere vibes and emotions that will stay embedded in my heart for the rest of my life! I want to say thank you Coilers, friends, crew, partners, and people that listen to our music for being such an inspiration for me. To my brothers and sis I’d like to say the following: Never stop to kicking asses, you sure know how to! 

 

The new record is the best thing we’ve done together. I have put all my passion and feelings into it and I’m sure you’ll love it. I’ll never stop playing drums – as we all know, if you were born with rock inside your veins, you’ll die with it… and this is what I will do.

 

Take care and stay Coilers!

 

CriZ

Century Media Records would like to extend a massive thank you to Cris “Pizza” Migliore and Cristiano “CriZ” Mozzati, as they will be missed – ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ marks a new chapter in the ever-evolving history of LACUNA COIL, but the band will not be slowing down. In fact, they are currently packing their bags and gear to begin touring.

LACUNA COIL return to the road to introduce North America to ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ as part of the REVOLVER HOTTEST CHICKS IN HARD ROCK TOUR, which launches February 20 and features LACUNA COIL sharing a stage with SICK PUPPIES, Century Media Records labelmates EYES SET TO KILL, and CILVER. The tour launches in Wilmington, NC, and runs through March 20 in Anaheim, CA. See complete itinerary below, and visit www.hottestchickstour.com for additional details and VIP packages.

 

Joining LACUNA COIL on the Revolver HCIHR tour will be drummer Ryan Folden. Fans will already be familiar with Ryan, as he performed live with LACUNA COIL on the majority of the 2012 and 2013 ‘Dark Legacy’ and ‘Dark Adrenaline’ tours.

 

‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ is set for releases April 1, 2014 in North America (March 31 in Europe, Australia, New Zealand) on Century Media Records. The album is the band’s seventh studio effort, and the highly-anticipated follow-up to ‘Dark Adrenaline’, which was released in January 2012 and saw the band tour with acts including Megadeth, Motorhead, Volbeat, Sevendust and Paradise Lost after debuting at No. 15 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.

 

Fans can get a taste of ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ in the form of the album track “Nothing Stands In Our Way,” recently released via the Century Media Records Soundcloud page:

https://soundcloud.com/centurymedia/lacuna-coil-nothing-stands/s-ecjkO.

 

The band will also be appearing on MONSTER ENERGY’S WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE festival, where they perform April 27 alongside ROB ZOMBIE, KORN, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and more. The two-day festival, held April 26-27 along the St. John’s River in Jacksonville, FL, will also feature headliners AVENGED SEVENFOLD and THE CULT.

‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ Track Listing:

  1. Nothing Stands In Our Way
  2. Zombies
  3. Hostage To The Light
  4. Victims
  5. Die & Rise
  6. I Forgive (But I Won’t Forget Your Name)
  7. Cybersleep
  8. Infection
  9. I Burn In You
  10. In The End I Feel Alive
  11. On Cold Day
LACUNA COIL have this to say about ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’:

“What conflict could run so deep that it takes you to the deepest corners of your inner world? Today we are surrounded by a lot of lies, aliases, and people acting like they are wearing an invisible crown – but you better have thick skin if you want to wear this crown! ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ is a cinematic album that could be the soundtrack of our days – it is a dark vision of a near future when survival is second nature, and failure is not something to be avoided, but rather cultivated with lessons learned along the way.

 

We set the bar pretty high with ‘Dark Adrenaline’ and it hasn’t been easy bringing our sound to the next level, but we have lived, learned and grown through a year full of personal issues and changes. We learned to be strong and get stronger, and we felt an inner vibe in this band that we haven’t felt before. We locked ourselves in an age-old studio in Milan, Italy, where history was strong and the past met with our future, vintage gear and the influence of classic Italian horror movies and bands like Goblin meeting the fresh and rough sounds of the modern world with unique and invigorating results. ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ is Lacuna Coil introducing a new order, and letting nothing stand in our way…”

 

LACUNA COIL were joined in their native Italy by producer Jay Baumgardner [P.O.D., Sevendust, Evanescence, Papa Roach] and engineer Kyle Hoffmann [P.O.D., Bush, Zebrahead]. ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ was mastered by Howie Weinberg, whose credits include Rammstein, Soundgarden, Nirvana, Deftones and Sheryl Crow.

Remembering Oliver Withöft, co-owner of Century Media

Remembering Oliver Withöft, Co-Owner of Century Media
Withöft, 49, Passed Away January 20, 2014

“I have lost my best friend of 32 years and my business partner of 24. Although the unthinkable already happened three days ago, I am still in a state of utter shock. Oliver Withöft leaves a space that cannot be filled for all who held him dear. He was a tremendous father, husband, son and friend and will be terribly missed. I will always treasure him in my heart as the witty, brilliant and altogether great person he was. Farewell Oliver, see you on the other side and in our next life. Your brother, Robert” 

–Robert Kampf, Century Media founder

Oliver Withöft, co-owner of independent record label Century Media, passed away on January 20, 2014 after falling ill several months ago. He was 49.

 

Born in Dortmund, Germany in 1964, Withöft studied linguistics, business and history in both Germany and the U.K. Robert Kampf started Century Media Records 25 years ago simply to create a suitable label home for his own band, Despair. He was looking for a trustworthy and strong partner to lead the company with and found this person in his best friend and fellow musician Oliver Withöft, who joined the company eighteen months later, sharing the same love and passion for music, and metal in particular. Since that very day, these two friends developed one of the most important independent record labels on the planet. Today the company has around 100 people on payroll in Dortmund, London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Melbourne and the Netherlands. A lot of musical careers were developed over the years: Lacuna Coil, Shadows Fall, Suicide Silence, In This Moment, Otherwise, Iced Earth, Die Broilers, Arch Enemy and Heaven Shall Burn are just a few of them. Century Media became a brand name recognized across the world. Oliver Withöft was always the strategic, legal and financial mind behind the organization. He was not only a strong fighter for the company, but also a very intelligent and forward-thinking leader. When the music industry drastically changed in the ’90s, he was the first to think about new ways to adapt to the needs and challenges of the rapidly-changing market. We have lost a great man with an amazing sense of humor, a warrior, and an overall very human being. Oliver leaves behind a wife, Judith, and their three daughters.

 

Antje Lange, CEO of Century Media Records: “I learned a lot from him in regards to business, the world and life. He was an extremely smart and visionary business man who cared a lot about the people working for him. He was one of the most open-minded and knowledgeable persons I have ever met. Oliver was responsible for a lot of successful artists’ careers and an impressive amount of albums that had an impact in the music world. It has never been easy  for him, but he was a strong fighter. A great man with an amazing sense of humor whose departure leaves a large gap in our lives.”

 

Ula Gehret, who handles business affairs for Century Media Records with his company Clandestine: “He had a razor-sharp intellect and keen business acumen, and as a number of people can attest to, he was not someone you wanted to be sitting across from at a negotiating table. After a few years at the label, he introduced me to how legal contracts worked. Eventually, with training, that became my full-time occupation.  It is no exaggeration to say that without his tutelage and patience, I would not be where I am today, doing something I love, and with principle. He was my mentor.”

 

Oliver was a very special person who touched many people’s lives in a positive and special way. This is a tremendous loss for all who knew him and it will take some time for us to grieve the passing of such a great person.

 

“Oliver was always a winner, one of those that I somehow thought would live forever. A genius, a friend and the best advisor I’ve ever had. It was all him behind the scenes.”

–Kobi Farhi, Orphaned Land

 

“Oliver and Robert had the guts, trust and belief to sign us when we were just a bunch of kids trying to play metal. Without these guys, I doubt we would be where we are today. He was not the easiest to work with back in the day, but a very cool guy.”

–Ola Lindgren, Grave

 

 

For those who would like to honor his memory:

 

His family have asked that – instead of sending flowers – they would appreciate it if you could donate to “The Oliver Withöft Scholarship”, a fund raised as part of the Kindred Project (www.thekindredproject.gl).

The cover artwork, pictured above, was designed by Gustavo Sazes / www.abstrata.net[Arch Enemy, Kamelot, Dream Evil]. A first song from the album can now be heard via the video for the album’s opening track “My Will Be Done (featuring Mats Levén)”, which was produced by Patric Ullaeus / revolver.se [Within Temptation, In Flames, Lacuna Coil].Click here to watch the video.

Says GUS G. of the song and album: “I hope you all enjoy the first taste of things to come. ‘My Will Be Done’ is a cool rock track with a modern edge to it… Looking back, I can’t believe all the great musicians that got on board for this album. Everybody brought in their unmistakable style and talent and they really lifted the songs! Check it out and enjoy the music!”

 

GUS G. will be attending the 2014 NAMM convention, which runs January 23 – 26, 2014, in Anaheim, CA. In addition to signing sessions at ESP Guitars [January 24, 2pm] and Blackstar Amps [January 25, 1pm], Gus will also appear as guest at the RANDY RHOADS REMEMBERED tribute concert at The Observatory in Santa Ana, January 25. Other guests include Nuno Bettencourt [Extreme / Rihanna], Phil Demmel [Machine Head], Marty Friedmann, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal [Guns N’ Roses] and more.

 

 

Gus handles all guitar, bass and keyboards on ‘I AM THE FIRE’, and is joined by a roster of friends and guests that help bring his vision to fruition: drummers JEFF FRIEDL [A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Devo] and DANIEL ERLANDSSON [Arch Enemy], bassists DAVID ELLEFSON [Megadeth], BILLY SHEEHAN [Mr. Big, David Lee Roth] and MARTY O’BRIEN [Tommy Lee, We Are The Fallen], and vocalists MATS LEVEN [Clandesmass, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen/Therion], BLAKE ALLISON [Devour The Day], MICHAEL STARR [Steel Panther], ALEXIA RODRIGUEZ [Eyes Set To Kill], TOM S. ENGLUND [Evergrey], JACOB BUNTON [Adler] and JEFF SCOTT SOTO [Trans-Siberian Orchestra, ex-Journey].

 

‘I AM THE FIRE’ was mixed by Jay Ruston [Anthrax, Stone Sour, Steel Panther] and was recorded between Los Angeles and Gus’ home country of Greece through the latter half of 2013. A few of the album’s tracks include “Eyes Wide Open,” “Redemption,” “End Of The Line” and “Blame It On Me.” The album showcases a well-balanced mix of active rock, classic hard rock, traditional metal and guitar-driven instrumentals, taking listeners on a diverse journey and opening doors to GUS G.’s soulful playing.

The album’s first commercial single – title track “I Am The Fire (featuring DEVOUR THE DAY)” – will be released digitally February 25 in North America.

 

GUS G. has had an amazing rise within the worldwide rock and metal scenes and has amassed an impressive body of work, both in studio and touring. He emerged as an up-and-coming talent with the groups DREAM EVIL [Sweden], MYSTIC PROPHECY [German] and NIGHTRAGE [Greece], but it is his work with his own band FIREWIND (who have released seven studio albums and two live releases) and as a member of OZZY OSBOURNE’s band that have helped him emerge as one of the world’s top metal and rock guitarists. His work on OZZY’s ‘Scream’ album led to a Grammy nomination in 2010, and his list of accolades includes Guitar Player Magazine’s Best Metal Guitarist, the Dimebag Darrell Shredder award at the Metal Hammer UK Golden Gods Awards, and Metal Hammer Greece Best Guitarist on four separate occasions.

A canon from the hadal depths of indignation

‘Rahabh!  In the age of defiance arise!’  Hear her call.  The roar of pride.  Her names are many: Rahabh, Leviathan, Tannin, Apep, Bakunava, but her call remains singular:  Rise from the depths of shame and ‘become your master’s death!’.”

ABOUT THE BANDS:

 

SICK PUPPIES:

Los Angeles via Australia modern rock trio Sick Puppies slammed into the scene in 2006 with their groundbreaking “Free Hugs,” video, which has garnered more than 40 million views on YouTube to date. The video, which accompanied the band’s song “All The Same,” earned Sick Puppies exposure on Oprah, Jay Leno, “60 Minutes” and CNN. It also propelled “All the Same” into a top requested single at commercial radio stations across North America. Years before YouTube, Sick Puppies were winning prestigious commendations, including “Best Song” from Triple J Unearthed, and “Best Live Performance” from the Australian Live Music Awards. The Australian edition of Rolling Stone even called Sick Puppies “the most dynamic new band in the country.” This past year saw the release of their most recent album, Connect (via Capitol Records), which garnered the band an impressive #17 debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart. With infectious tunes, a jaw-dropping stage show and equal doses of hits and hugs, Sick Puppies are striking a blow against the horde of faceless modern rock bands that are virtually all the same.

 

LACUNA COIL:

Moving and powerful, mysterious and serpentine, the music of Lacuna Coil has always been somewhat of a mystery to nail down. Too brawny to be gothic, yet too melodic to be purely metal, the band has carved a path all its own with their unique sound and undeniable songwriting prowess. Fans are in store for a real treat this time around, as the band will debut songs from their newly recorded album; the Jay Baumgardner produced Broken Crown Halo, which is set for an April 1 release date through Century Media Records.

 

EYES SET TO KILL:

Eyes Set To Kill have been providing fans with an outlet for their aggression since they first emerged from Phoenix, Arizona in 2003. Since then, they have amassed over 1.3 million Facebook likes, covered USA Today, and landed on Alternative Press’s coveted “100 Bands You Need to Know List”. On the road, they’ve developed into a veritable whirlwind, sharing stages with everyone from Papa Roach to Black Veil Brides. They’ve crossed the globe four times on tour and even headlined a festival in Jakarta in front of 8,000-plus fans. Their new album Masks is out now via Century Media Records, produced by Steve Evetts (Suicide Silence, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

 

CILVER:

Emerging from the New York, NY rock scene, Cilver, fronted by Uliana, one of the 2014 Revolver’s Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock, is quickly making a name for themselves. With their debut single, “In My Head”, which features Bumblefoot of Guns n’ Roses, the band has garnered attention from Revolver Magzine, Metal Insider, Blabbermouth, and many other sites. “In My Head” has also been the “Flavor Of The Week” on Music Choice TV and has been getting spins on Sirius XM Octane, along with dozens of other national radio stations. Cilver’s debut EP, “In My Head” will be independently released on January 21. Check out their video and single at www.cilverband.com.

Video Interview and Show Pix: Butcher Babies Talk to PGH Music Mag

Kinetic.  That may be the best word to describe the Butcher Babies.  They are always in motion, like frenzied animals on a mission the BB’s have been crossing this country back and forth to conquer stages and change minds about how metal girls can be.  Often written off by only eye gazers who figure they are just candy for the pupils, one only has to open their minds and ears to hear the talent that is infused within the entire band.  Carla and Heidi have the stuff to make both the guys and the girls to take notice physically, but when you see them live and they take that Wendy O. Williams inspired punk attitude mixed with metal screamo and singing combo straight to face with a punch to the gut, one takes notice with their metal instincts and can’t help but be caught up in the moment.  No video, no picture, no article can truly do the band justice…go seek them out while on the road with Danzig now, but stay tuned for further announcements of upcoming tours which at this time they were unable to reveal.

AMULET signs worldwide deal with Century Media Records

Heavy metal was founded in England and still lives in England. London’s AMULET quickly gained attention in the underground scene with their demo Cut The Crap in 2011. The tape sold out fast as did the 7″ version, which is starting to become a collector’s item. After supporting bands like PAGAN ALTAR, MANILLA ROAD and THE SWORD and playing festivals like Bloodstock (UK), Hell’s Pleasure (Germany) and Muskelrock (Sweden), Century Media Records became very interested in AMULET. Now a worldwide deal has been signed to spread the gospel of Heavy Metal.

The band comments: “AMULET want to thank all those who have helped take the band to this point, especially the efforts put in from previous axe slingers and of course the mysterious Hangman. To our fans, thanks for storming the front rows and banging your heads. We are excited for the future, it’s time to let Heavy Metal reign supreme!”

AMULET formed in 2010. The group is comprised of friends who met at various shows over the years and realized that they all wanted to make the same powerful and honest music. Guitarist Heathen Steven and bassist Bill Dozer founded the band; they were soon joined by Dave Sherwood on drums and vocalist Jamie Elton, and then they were completed with the addition of lead guitarist Nippy Blackford.

The 5-piece is inspired by the golden-era of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock, but they add a focused and slightly doomy, riff-heavy sound of their own. Fans can expect short songs with catchy vocals, heavy riffs, soaring leads and bone-shaking bass, driven to the limit with pounding drums. A sound that fits somewhere after “classic” BLACK SABBATH, but before METALLICA’s scene-defining debut.

Check out http://www.youtube.com/amuletmetal for AMULET’s Cut The Crap session videos, plus an amazing acoustic performance at Bloodstock, and more.

Expect AMULET’s debut album to be released sometime in 2014 via Century Media Records. Stay tuned for more news coming soon!

AMULET live:

11.9.2013 – Heavy Sound Festival – Kouter, Belgium (w/ GRIM REAPER, ALPHA TIGER, etc.)

THE SAFETY FIRE reveal official music video for ‘Red Hatchet’

London-based progressive metal band The Safety Fire recently revealed ‘Red Hatchet’, the fantastic first track to be taken from their forthcoming album ‘Mouth Of Swords’ which is due out on 2nd September, and the reaction has been incredible.
They are now pleased to release the official music video for said track which was filmed and directed by Jamie Carter. Guitarist and producer Derya ‘Dez’ Nagle had this to say about the video: “We had so much fun recording and writing the album in vests and cut offs we thought it would be the best way to capture the energy of the song visually for all the world to see. Also we all have great legs, so it was just an excuse to show off our sexy pins.”

Watch the video here:

HEART OF A COWARD – sign with Century Media Records

387

 

UK metallers HEART OF A COWARD have inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The quintet hailing from Milton Keynes has recently hit the studio to record their second ferocious album and follow up to their debut album “Hope & Hindrance” that was released in 2012. The yet untitled album is scheduled for a release before the end of 2013.

 

Jamie Graham (vocals) comments on joining the team: “Century Media are on our wavelength in terms of where we want to take HEART OF A COWARD, as well as boasting releases from some of our favorite bands and influences. It’s an honor to be a part of the CM family and we are really excited to have such an awesome label on board.”

 

HEART OF A COWARD can look back to memorable performances at the likes of Ghostfest, followed by joining the Metal Hammer Razor Tour alongside Devil Sold His Soul and Heights in 2012 as well as supporting their new label mates in Bleed From Within throughout the UK in April 2013. While they are still working on their upcoming Century Media Records debut HEART OF A COWARD have already lined up an impressive list of forthcoming events and tours in the coming months including Download Festival and Summerjam Festival. Not to mention an anticipated return to the main stage of Ghostfest for the second round. With interest in the band spreading overseas fast, the band will also cross over to Russia later this year as main support to Between The Buried And Me. HEART OF A COWARD’s live show does not only deliver complete aggression across any venue, but brings forward a sound that fans can relate straight back to the record to relive their tight, precise sound.

 

Sheer determination and a high level of creative ability made HEART OF A COWARD one of the hottest prospects in the UK right now. Following some recent (media) feedback:

 

“HEART OF A COWARD are main support tonight and waste not a second in pummeling the crowd with their relentless barrage of bloodthirsty, batter-fucking-everything riffs. Frontman Jamie Graham looks like a graduate from the Phil Anselmo school of crowd control, and judging by tonight’s performance, he passed that course with flying colors. The Milton Keynes based tech-metallers explore the futuristic darkness of bands like Fear Factory and Meshuggah, but with big, fuck-off hairy Southern balls. That’s a good thing in case you were wondering.” (Metal Hammer UK, live review from their tour with Bleed From Within, London Underworld)

“One of the UK’s most promising young acts, with a fantastic musical pedigree to boot.”

 (Alexander Milas, Metal Hammer UK)

“Nightmarishly dark and crushing beyond comprehension, HEART OF A COWARD are the most punishing band to come out of the UK underground for years. Don’t expect anyone to surpass them anytime soon.” (Nick Calafato, Last.fm)

“HEART OF A COWARD

have the undeniable drive of a band destined for great things. Effortlessly standing out from the crowd on record and in the live arena; 2013 truly is the year for the band to explode. Expect an unmissable set at Download, my personal recommendation for ‘break-neck’ action at this year’s festival!”

(Dave Bradley, Live Nation)

  Girl On Fire - cover

From Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain to Presidents Of The United States Of America and Sir Mix A Lot, the Jet City has a musical history as rich and storied as it is vast – now Girl On Fire are emerging to write a chapter all their own.

 

“Everyone experiences ups and downs in life, but the ups and downs are what make life worth living,” says singer Austin Held. “We have all looked broken, and we have all felt broken – but we are not broken.”

 

After just one listen to “The Takedown,” one is transported from the overcast and down-tuned landscape of the Pacific Northwest to a place where energy and enthusiasm explode at every corner.

 

Produced and mixed by Jay Baumgardner [Papa Roach, Evanescence, Sevendust] and mastered by Howie Weinberg [Nirvana, Aerosmith, The White Stripes], Not Broken is a combustible combination of crisp riffs and body-shaking rhythms, a guitar-driven thrill ride primed to take radio by storm and leave the world rocking in its wake.

SANCTUARY signs worldwide deal with Century Media Records

  

Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of the legendary Seattle metal band SANCTUARY. In 2010, four of the founding members, Warrel Dane, Jim Sheppard, Lenny Rutledge and Dave Budbill, came together for a few select reunion performances. At first, it was just going to be a handful of shows, but the response and chemistry on stage was so overwhelming that the guys changed their minds. Now, some 20 years after they left off, SANCTUARY will continue with their unique mix of US power metal, hard rock and progressive elements and begin work on a new LP. To complete the line-up, Brad Hull (FORCED ENTRY) will be filling in for former guitar player Sean Blosi. A late 2013 release is planned.

The band comments:

Warrel Dane: “Having been with Century Media since 1995 with NEVERMORE, it was a very comfortable decision for SANCTUARY to sign with them. Century Media has a great team that always delivers for all of their bands. I’ve known most of them on a first name basis for many years and I look forward to this new chapter in history.”

Lenny Rutledge: “I can speak for every member of SANCTUARY when I say we are all excited to join the Century Media family. We now have the opportunity to work with the best metal record label on the planet. We are looking forward to creating great music with an awesome team behind us.”

SANCTUARY released the classic albums Refuge Denied and Into The Mirror Black during their short existence between 1985 and 1992. Following the band’s dissolve, singer Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard formed NEVERMORE.

New Years Day announce new release ‘Victim To Villain’ June 11

355

New Years Day Announce June 11 Release of ‘Victim to Villain’ on Century Media Records

Band to be Featured on Van’s Warped Tour this Summer—

On June 11, NEW YEARS DAY will further their quest to unite the living, dead and undead with the release of their new album VICTIM TO VILLIAN on Century Media Records. Led by the dynamic Ash Costello, these Orange County alt-rockers will haunt your stereo and warm your heart, their tongue-in-cheek macabre and molten mischief sure to become mainstay in summer soundtracks nationwide. Produced by Erik Ron [Panic At The Disco, Saosin], the album features a guest appearance by Motionless In White frontman Chris Motionless on the track “Angel Eyes.” See below for the album cover and track listing. 

“When we hit the studio with Erik Ron to start writing last summer, the theme and idea for this album came almost immediately,” says Costello. “I was dealing with so much at that point in my life and I felt like I had to make a choice to wake up in the morning and stop being the victim to it all and start owning my power and let my inner villain come out. The album follows that story, the transformation, and the satisfying vengeance that comes along with it. The direction is heavier and darker but still has that hauntingly weird and fun vibe that we have become known for. We have so much in store visually to go along with the record, especially between now and the Warped Tour – this tour is going to become known as the ‘death of the party’!”

WATAIN announces title and release date for new album

WATAIN has announced the title and release date of their upcoming album: “After 120 nights of iron will and ardent magic, the fifth full length album of WATAIN is now complete. With broken bones and burning hearts we have ploughed our way through deepest winter into a new wilderness, to which we will open the gates at summer’s end. ‘The Wild Hunt’ will be released on August 19th in Europe and August 20th in USA. Beware the rising star of dawn…”

 

The album was mixed again at the Necromorbus Studio in Alvik, Sweden by Tore Stjerna. No further comments. More details will be unveiled soon.

 

Formed back in 1998, WATAIN’s first two albums, Rabid Death’s Curse (2000) and Casus Luciferi (2003) established the band firmly within the underground scene, whereas Sworn To The Dark (2007) and especially Lawless Darkness (2010) helped them conquer a wider audience, making them one of the most talked about acts in recent years. Musically rooted in classic black metal inspired by the likes of VENOM, HELLHAMMER, BATHORY, MAYHEM, DISSECTION as well as the grandeur of old IRON MAIDEN, METALLICA, RAINBOW, it is the larger-than-life aesthetics and total dedication to their art that elevates WATAIN beyond almost any other extreme metal band out there. WATAIN is satanic metal at its most frightening and fascinating.
After celebrating their 13th anniversary with the release of the DVD/double live albumOpus Diaboli (2012) under the band’s own imprint His Master’s Noise, followed by an US tour with BEHEMOTH, THE DEVIL’S BLOOD and IN SOLITUDE last year, plus celebrated shows at Wacken and Bloodstock Open Air, 2013 will see the release of WATAIN’s much anticipated fifth studio album, The Wild Hunt, via His Master’s Noise in collaboration with Century Media Records.
