PHILIP H. ANSELMO hasn’t just paved his own path; he’s bulldozed it with his bare hands. His primal, powerful presence led Pantera to Grammy Award nominations, sales of twenty million albums worldwide, legions of diehard fans, and an indisputable heavy metal legacy. Simultaneously, Down carved out a distinct niche with a gold-selling debut and three more critically acclaimed releases. Superjoint made a triumphant return in 2016 and in the midst of everything, ANSELMO joined Scour alongside members of Pig Destroyer and Cattle Decapitation and teamed up with horror icon Bill Moseley for the Bill & Phil project. However, PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS speaks to a certain need for him.
Instead of treading the same ground, ANSELMO and his bandmates in THE ILLEGALS, open up another doorway altogether with their 2018 sophomore release, Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue. It’s extreme, abrasive, aggressive, and anthemic. In other words, it’s purely ANSELMO.
Following up 2013’s Walk Through Exits Only, this new body of work hinges on no holds-barred lyrical misanthropy and insurgent instrumental intricacy as it sharpens any and all edges to guillotine precision. “It ain’t pretty,” ANSELMO exclaims. “It’s more straightforward and cohesive to a degree, but it still goes off the rails here and there. We went through it song after song cut and fucking dry. I was in a specific mindset. I wanted to further my endeavors into a genre of music that I adore. As all ten songs blow by, I wanted an unforgiving feel. This is what was on my mind. It’s a recorded capsule of time.”
Following a successful maiden touring cycle for THE ILLEGALS, the frontman hunkered down at his home studio in Louisiana to record what would become Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue in 2014 and 2015. The lineup shifted as Stephen Taylor (Superjoint) transitioned from bass to guitar, Mike DeLeon (Flesh Horder, Being Killed, ex-MOD et al) joined as a guitarist, and Walter Howard (Grieved, Oppressive Force) took over bass duties. Meanwhile, Jose Manuel “Blue” Gonzalez (Superjoint, Warbeast) held down the drums. Through rigorous rehearsals and writing sessions, a framework for the new music took shape as ANSELMO wholeheartedly welcomed the ideas of his cohorts.
“Their creative input is fucking fantastic,” beams ANSELMO. “This is something that was very different from the first record where I was very staunch. I wanted it to be ugly. I was very firm that I was writing every fucking note. The thought was, ‘This is my contribution to ugly music right this second in a heavy metal vein.’ That was great at the time. Walk Through Exits Only made its own little statement that I am a free agent and I belong to no single band. This time, I worked closely with everyone. We tried different ideas together. It made the spirit of this thing come alive even more because of the enthusiasm these guys bring. It enhanced the integrity of the project.”
“Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue hits with all the subtlety of a jackhammer in the forehead. This is unquestionably one of the angriest and heaviest albums of ANSELMO‘s career.” — Exclaim
“An ever-shifting fusillade of extreme groove prog…” — Decibel
 
“…strong, powerful and ugly…this record has everything one would want from a PHILIP H. ANSELMO project – testosterone-filled, aggressive, no-nonsense metal with attitude… some of the heaviest, most brutal metal he has created to date…” — Metal Nexus
 
“…an album that is pure mayhem on the surface and sublimely intelligent underneath.” — The Void Report
 
“…heavy, vicious and angry…a perfect storm of extreme metal chaos…” — Hellbound
 
“The sheer anger PHIL communicates in his most crushing vocal lines and the mind melting assault of these tracks speaks of a world few of us are truly comfortable with. ANSELMO and the gang are pulling apart societies problems and forcing us to choke on them.” — Two Guys Metal Reviews
 
“…a brutal album, heavy in attack but chaotic in style and grandeur.” — The Rock Pit
 
“Every song is full of relentless anxiety, tension, and malice. Seeking solace is not in the cards as the death-tinged hardcore brutality within this album is terrifying. However, there is a bit of a cathartic release that only the tortured vocals of PHIL ANSELMO can provide.” — Metal Wani

ALBEZ DUZ: Occult Doom Rock Collective Premieres “Sacred Flame” At Decibel

unnamed-4Wings Of Tzinacan is the impending new full-length from German, occult doom rock rock collectiveALBEZ DUZ. Emerging from the dark corners of Berlin in 2006, ALBEZ DUZ — old High German for “swan” (Albex) and “noisiness” or “rush” “Duz” – was forged by Eugen “Impurus” Herbst initially as a one-man side project. The band’s ominous debut was recorded in 2009 with singer Lars Kaeding. Following Kaeding’s death however, the band stepped into the shadows for the next three years. With a lingering fire and purpose, Herbst continued to write for ALBEZ DUZ and, after an exhaustive search, crossed paths with Alfonso Brito whose voice seemed destined for the project. In September 2014, the duo brought the band’s second album The Coming Of Mictlan to life via Iron Bonehead Records and Archaic Sound. They began performing live shortly after.
ALBEZ DUZ has since shared the stage with iconic acts such as Primordial and Swans as well as other rising talent including Bölzer, Ascension, and Hexvessel. In a short time, the Berliners established themselves as a force in the European underground and elicited high praise from both critics and audiences alike. ALBEZ DUZ recently completed its third full-length album, the thunderingWings Of Tzinacan, at The Source Studios Munich with producer and audio engineer Michael Zech (Secrets Of The Moon, Triptykon, Ascension etc.) at the helm. Guitarist Julia Neuman has joined their ranks, solidifying the band as an unstoppable power trio.
In advance of the release, today Decibel Magazine premieres ALBEZ DUZ epic “Sacred Flame.” Offers Neuman of the track, “Despite being a journey of a track at over ten minutes long, ‘Sacred Flame’ was written almost entirely in one burst. When we were in the studio recording, we all had goosebumps listening to Alfonso’s vocal takes. There was a haunting energy there that definitely comes across in the song.”
Adds Decibel, “At nearly ten minutes long, ‘Sacred Flame’ isn’t lacking in the length department.ALBEZ DUZ shows off moments of calm stillness standing in stark contrast to the thundering doom that the occult rockers also deliver on the song.”

Lose yourself in the crushing sounds of ALBEZ DUZ’s “Sacred Flame” at THIS LOCATION.
Wings Of Tzinacan will see release via Listenable Records in Europe on October 21st, 2016 followed by a North American release of October 28th, 2016. Preorder bundles are currently available at THIS LOCATION.
With a twilight performance at the prestigious Speckjaga Funkenflug Festival already checked off the band’s list in 2016, and other appearances scheduled, ALBEZ DUZ is burning its flame higher and brighter, ready to cast a spell on the globe and initiate a new chapter in doom. The gates are open! Fans of Saint Vitus, Count Raven, Tiamat, Hawkwind, Jex Thoth, Pentagram, and the like have been warned.

ABOUT SLAYER
For more than three decades, Slayer’s onslaught has proven the band to be the supreme thrash-metal band on the planet, the band that other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to. The two-time Grammy-winners have also accumulated an abundance of certified Gold Albums along with “Best…” awards from media outlets all over the world, including Kerrang!SPINMetal HammerRevolver, and Esquire.  Throughout Slayer’s history, the band has never faltered in unleashing its extreme and focused sonic assault, and, unlike many of its contemporaries who “commercialized” their sound, Slayer has remained crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream.  Slayer’s founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed in 2013, and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in for him since.  Paul Bostaph, who was Slayer’s drummer from ’94 – ’01, has rejoined bassist/vocalist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King, and is back behind the kit.
In September 2015, Slayer released Repentless, the band’s 12th studio album, the first without Hanneman and first with producer Terry Date, to widespread rave reviews and the highest chart debut of the band’s career. The band also teamed up with director BJ McDonnell for two high-concept and brutal music videos for the album’s “Repentless” (9.5-million views) and then for  “You Against You.” (4.2-million views).

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.

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:

  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)

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.

Irish Rockers THE ANSWER released their latest album New Horizon this past fall in North America via Napalm Records.  The album that was met with critical acclaim and rave reviews is available for purchase on Amazon andiTunes.

 

Today, Ultimate Classic Rock is hosting a premiere of THE ANSWER‘s new video for the title track of New Horizon.  The video can be seen exclusivelyHERE.

 

Keeping the beacon of Irish rock music well and truly alight, THE ANSWERhave consistently delivered commercial, and critically acclaimed albums. The band have toured the world extensively, proving themselves to be an incendiary live act – spending almost two years as main support to AC/DC and playing to over 2 million people, performing festivals across the globe and also supporting the likes of The Rolling Stones, Whitesnake and Wolfmother as well as countless headline tours.

 

Since their third studio album in late 2011, the band instigated a major shakeup in their circumstances and with new management, live booking agents and with new record label on board, late 2012 saw them enter the studio with ex Little Angels vocalist Toby Jepson at the production helm. The new record, “New Horizon” is their fourth studio album and with mixes from rock icon Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica).

Featuring Grace’s signature, explicit songwriting and dominant vocals, the album also features longtime guitarist/vocalist James Bowman, drummer Atom Willard and Fat Mike of NOFXon bass for “FUCKMYLIFE666” and “Unconditional Love.”

German art rockers RPWL will release their new album Wanted North America on April 1st via Gentle Art of Music/E1. 

RPWL has released a teaser trailer for Wanted which can be viewed at:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwMlM5G3jrw

The band that knew too much…

Germany’s outstanding art rock act was recently confronted with a rather difficult question: how do you follow up a both epic as well as celebrated album as was the Nietzsche-themed Beyond Man and Time? Here’s the answer: you tackle the really, really huge topic on your new record Wanted – the ultimate liberation of the spirit.

But… How does an idea like that spring to the minds of an art rock band in the first place?

RPWL tell of the hero of two worlds, Giuseppe Garibaldi who, being a tremendous admirer of the Greek antiquity became aware of a scroll of Plato’s in which he analyzes the work of Hippocrates. It can be read in Garibaldi’s diaries that Hippocrates had in fact found the formula for a medicine that leads the spirit into a real and absolute world, free of all illusion and invisible ghost worlds. The question, however, that inevitable arises at that point is the following: is the human race ready for what Plato called the “gift of absolute freedom?”

It lies in the artistic fearlessness of RPWL that the band is not afraid of transferring that complex question to the world of today: is modern man, being the evolutionary creature that he is, ready for absolute freedom? To explore that, these Bavarians have established a back-story full of fantasy. In it RPWLand their friends aim at granting the world access to the product of the secret formula – disguised as a homeopathic drug against mental fatigue that goes by the name of “Veritas Forte.” Considering the true intention of the operation the fact that the wrath of the churches of the world religions is unleashed at the band rather sooner than later is understood. And so, consequently, they are forced to go underground. That, however, is where RPWL continues to organize ultimate liberation from all oppression through the machineries of illusion run by religions and sects. RPWL are Wanted.

The action of Wanted starts several days before the great day: Plato’s Day. The enemy’s fear is ever growing, as, after all nobody knows at what point the mirages and illusions are eradicated from people’s minds once and for all. In the course of the record RPWL shift through ten varied songs full of breathtaking soundscapes and tell a compelling story of courage, doubt, bravery, the unconditional desire to never give in and, ultimately, the belief in what is right.

By making a philosophy that is new and to a degree unique the subject of the concept of WantedRPWL bring the principle of the concept album to a new level. That is how this gigantic piece of art evolves into a true explosion of creativity. Furthermore the intellectual firepower of the content is in every way matched by the artistic and emotional depth of the music. More than ever a sharp artistic edge and the hunger for discovery is what drives this record forward. Despite more than fifteen years in the scene, Yogi Lang (vocals, keyboard), Kalle Wallner (guitar), Marc Turiaux (drums), Markus Jehle (keyboard, piano) and Werner Taus (bass) brilliantly avoid playing it safe.

The masterpiece that is Wanted will also be released as double vinyl as well as a limited edition in additional 5.1-surround-sound. Yes, Wanted is a gamble – and boy does that gamble pay off.

Band Set For REVOLVER HOTTEST CHICKS IN ROCK TOUR With SICK PUPPIES, EYES SET TO KILL & CILVER

 

Tour To Run February 20 – March 20 In North America

 

WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE Performance Set For April 27

LACUNA COIL are giving fans a first taste of their upcoming new studio album ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ in the form of the album track “Nothing Stands In Our Way,” which the band released today via the Century Media Records Soundcloud page:

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

“Through everyday battles, against all odds, we stand united and don’t look back. We go on against crashing economies, heartbreaks and lifelong obstacles. We learn from our mistakes and nothing can stop us. We fear nothing and we are determined as musicians and as human beings,” say LACUNA COIL about “Nothing Stands In Our Way.”

‘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.

 

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.

‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ Track Listing:

  2. Zombies

  4. Victims
  5. Die & Rise

  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.

“Laura Jane Grace still barks her lyrics with fiercely assertive intelligence. The end result is just as catchy and anthemic as the terrific speedball punk records that precede it.” – NPR

“Crisp, distinct and vibrant” – The New York Times

“One of the most incisive and life-affirming rock albums of the ’10s.” – SPIN

 in its detail.” – The Washington Post
