The global metal scene recognizes Alissa White-Gluz for her unforgettable and inimitable work as the vocalist of iconic metal band Arch Enemy. At this point in her career, the versatile singer has worked steadily in heavy bands for half her life. The impactful frontwoman has cultivated her style and her sound through years of writing, recording, touring, and old fashioned, iron-clad work ethic. Alissa is armed with equal skill and experience, as well as abundant artistic confidence, and is backed by the fact that music lovers all over the world are eager to hear more of her astonishing range. That’s why White-Gluz is doing something new.

It’s an entity dubbed simply “ALISSA” and her brand new solo project has now been worldwide signed by Napalm Records.
First things first – White-Gluz remains firmly installed in her role as the frontwoman of Arch Enemy. That status has not and will not change. “ALISSA” is more of a musical collective, led by White-Gluz and featuring contributions from her wide network of also-talented friends, like an own creative commune with little in the way of rules, regulations, or limits.
Alissa White-Gluz & Thomas Caser (Napalm Records CEO)
So what is ALISSA all about?Alissa White-Gluzon her signing with Napalm Records:
 
 “I’m excited to announce that I am currently composing and building my first solo album for the project aptly and honestly entitled “ALISSA” which will see some more of my creative adventures unleashed. It is a welcome creative outlet to unlock all of my lyrical and musical vaults with zero restriction or pressure to conform to any particular style or era. I also pay close attention to what my fans want – I haven’t been ignoring the consistent requests for my clean singing voice! With Angela Gossow as management and Napalm Records just as passionate as I am about this new project, I’m fortunate to have found a home amongst friends and colleagues who are supportive and encouraging of my full musical spectrum. This album will also feature members of the Arch Enemy family, both current and past, as well as many of the other great artists I have had the pleasure of sharing a stage with throughout my career. So many respected artists have invited me into their music over the years, now it’s time to bring them into my world. 
 Thank you to all my incredible fans around the world – this music is for you!”
Thomas Caser, Napalm Records CEO states:
A true pleasure to announce this signing today. We are looking forward to this cooperation with one of the most talented front-ladies and artist in today’s business!”
 
The ALISSA project is about style and substance, with White-Gluz affirming,“This album will be very personal. I have a lot of ideas, songs, lyrics, and compositions built up in my brain over the years, I want to get them out this way.” White-Gluz is stretching her creative muscles and trying new things in a dynamic way.
Most people know Alissa from being in Arch Enemy, where she focuses mostly on her growling vocals. With creating ALISSA it is the perfect platform for presenting her clean singing voice more often as well as delivering other techniques we all have heard from other works with bands. While the project is taking shape, some of the confirmed guests so far include past and present members of Arch Enemy and Kamelot, as well as Doyle from The Misfits. More creative partnerships will be revealed as this exciting and delightfully nebulous project develops and grows. In the meantime, White-Gluz continues to flesh out the material while recruiting players.
 
ALISSA is essentially another vehicle for White-Gluz to display her talents and an entity that has no boundaries and therein lies the musical thrill – for Alissa White-Gluz and her listeners. An album is already scheduled for 2017 and tour dates will follow around the album release as well.
Stay tuned for many more exciting details & info to follow!

VAN CANTO Releases Video For “Into The West”

German “a cappella metal” band VAN CANTO will release its new studio album, Dawn Of The Brave, tomorrow via Napalm Records.   The album can be ordered on Amazon and iTunes.

 

Today the band presents the video for the song “Into The West”.  “Into the West” is a cover version of the Lord of the Rings soundtrack title.  The video can be viewed HERE.

 

Only supported by a drummer, the German sextet offers the perfect blend of sweeping original songs and cover versions of legendary Rock classics such as “Paranoid” (BLACK SABBATH) or “The Final Countdown” (EUROPE). As a special bonus, more than 200 VAN CANTO fans took part in the choir recordings, and can hear themselves on the new album. Charlie Bauerfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, HELLOWEEN, etc.) produced the drum recordings. The album was mixed by sound wizard Ronald Prent (MANOWAR, RAMMSTEIN, etc.) at the legendary Wisseloord Studio 2. He gave the a cappella sound an outstanding and omnipresent dynamic. The artwork is based on superhero concept, and this theme runs as a red thread through the photographs and visual design that was provided by Stefan Heilemann. Once more VAN CANTO shows the scene, that it doesn’t need electric guitars to rock!

 

A YouTube video featuring audio samples from all of Dawn of the Brave is available for preview HERE.

 

The first video from Dawn of the Brave for the song “Badaboom” can be seen HERE.

Jill from Huntress Tells PGHMUSICMAG She Wants To…

Jill from Huntress took some time backstage at The Rockstar Mayhem Festival in Pittsburgh to speak with PGHMUSICMAG about all that is going on with the band.  Watch the video to learn a little more about what goes on after hours at Mayhem, hanging with Lemmy, what is up after Mayhem, and much more…

4b6t

HUNTRESS have confirmed they will be touring late summer with Danzig as he celebrates his 25th Anniversary with Doyle.  These tour dates kick off immediately following the band’s run with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, and Heavy MTL Festival in Montreal, Canada.  The tour starts August 13th in Bethlehem, PA, and runs through August 31st in Tempe, AZ.  A complete list of dates can be found below.HUNTRESS vocalist Jill Janus commented on the upcoming tour with Danzig:

HUNTRESS is honored and thrilled to be the opening act for Danzig’s summer 25th anniversary tour with Doyle! I speak for all my bandmates when I say Danzig and the Misfits were immensely influential during our angsty teenage years. I’m taking a time machine back to high-five and freak out with my thirteen year old self! This rules!”

 

HUNTRESS has generated a massive amount of buzz since the release of their debut album Spell Eater in 2012. The follow up to last year’s kill, Starbound Beast, has been released and is available now via Napalm Records. The album is available for purchase on iTunes,Amazon and in Best Buy stores in the US.

The band recently filmed their music video for “Zenith” from their new album Starbound Beast.  An exclusive trailer has been posted and can be viewed HERE.  The spectacular video was directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE‘s “Fertile Green” was named best video of 2012 by Revolver. Look for the video to receive its exclusive premiere via Bloody Disgusting soon.

HUNTRESS are taking part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.  In addition to performing every day, vocalist Jill Janus will host the first ever Shred-Meister guitar competition.  Festival attendees can go to the Jägermeister tents on site and audition for a chance to shred for 10 seconds on the main stage. Each day, one of the 10 finalists will win a custom  Jägermeister guitar from Schecter, and the overall winner at the end of the tour will win a  custom Jägermeister full stack and head courtesy of Peavey Electronics.

Starbound Beast was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, CA, working with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front).  The artwork  for Starbound Beast  was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.
HUNTRESS Lineup:
Vocals: Jill Janus
Guitars: Blake Meahl
Guitars: Anthony Crocamo
Bass: Ian Alden
Drums: Carl Wierzbicky

vcramlogo2

 

VISTA CHINO the band formed by John Garcia and Brant Bjork (formerly of Kyuss) have inked a deal with Napalm Records.  The album is set for an early fall release.  More details, including album title, artwork and track listing will be revealed in the coming weeks.

 

Vocalist John Garcia said the following:

 

“Kyuss Lives is now VISTA CHINO!…it feels great just to write that….and to say it out loud, feels even better. Now that our relationship with Napalm Records is official; it’s time to forget about the past year, move forward, and execute our original plan, which was to make kick ass music and tour the world!

 

Drummer Brant Bjork added:

 

“We look forward to working with Napalm Records and we anticipate great support in rolling out the VISTA CHINO rock.”

 

Thomas Caser, Head Of A&R at Napalm Records commented on the signing:

 

It’s with great pride we announce the signing of VISTA CHINO. After all the band has been through they are ready to rock! We at Napalm Records are thrilled to work with such talented artists and look forward to a long-lasting cooperation!

 

Today Napalm Records and VISTA CHINO are excited to debut the first song from VISTA CHINO‘s highly anticipated first full length album.  The song entitled “Dargona, Dragona” is available as an exclusive stream on the VISTA CHINO Facebook Page.  When visiting the facebook page, clicking the “like” button will enable the audio.

 

Rising from the desert sands that birthed Kyuss Lives, VISTA CHINO‘s sound is instantly familiar.  With the trademark soulful vocals of John Garcia, the songwriting and production of Brant Bjork (drums) and the fuzz-laden riffage of imported guitarist Bruno Fevery, VISTA CHINO‘s debut is one of the year’s most anticipated heavy rock albums. A new band born of a storied past, right now it’s about these players playing these songs.

 

VISTA CHINO‘s first North American performance will take place at this year’s “Orion Festival” in Detroit, MI curated by Metallica.  VISTA CHINO will play on Sunday June 9thon the “Frantic Stage”.   A full North American tour will be announced shortly.

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips.HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.
