QUEENSRYCHE premiere new video for "Redemption" and kick off European tour on October 12     


October 8, 2013 


After the release of their self-titled album in June, legendary Seattle rockers Queensryche will be back on tour in Europe presenting the latest addition to the band's multi-platinum musical catalog and their new frontman Todd La Torre live to their European fans. "Queensryche" was mixed and mastered by famed Queensryche producer James "Jimbo" Barton who is known for working on the band's classics "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Empire". The album marks the debut of the lineup comprised of Todd La Torre (Vocals), Michael Wilton (Guitars), Parker Lundgren (Guitars), Eddie Jackson (Bass) and Scott Rockenfield (Drums).


As a special teaser for the upcoming European tour the band just finished a video for the album track "Redemption" with scenes from the studio recordings and first US shows with Todd. The video will be premiered through UK's PROG magazine.   


Check it out here: 



As previously announced, the band also recently filmed a 'mini movie' to the tracks, "Spore" "Midnight Lullaby", "A World Without" and "X2."

The film was created by Veva Entertainment Co. with director Daniel Andres Gomez Bagby and producer Marco De Molina and was filmed last month on location at Central City Stages in Los Angeles. It will be released later this year.

Metal / Anthropomorphism in metal
« on: October 08, 2013, 05:38:52 AM »

About the Cascadian scene.

Anarchic is demonstrative of that willingness to be creative and experimental, particularly in the lyrics department. They sing and scream about environmental degradation and the effects of humanity on wildlife:

I can't see whatever was here before there was trauma

All I can sense is the horrible motion of everything in existence,

flinching from injury, fleeing from the source of its pain

In rage, the sun teeters on the axis that sets it down

In rage, the mountain strains against the tether of the ground

In rage, the tree defies the soil in which it is bound

In rage...

History repeats itself. In the 1970s, they wrote about the rage of the dolphins too.

Metal / Carcass - Swansong LP
« on: October 05, 2013, 01:43:12 PM »
This Friday, October 11th, we'll be offering the final FDR vinyl of the Earache Carcass collection,"Swansong", that so many of you have been asking for. By now, you should all know how fast the most limited colours of these vinyl releases sell, so make sure you're ready to order at 1pm EDT because they will go fast!

Please be aware that the most limited colour of "Swansong" will be limited to ONE PER CUSTOMER!


"Hypernova", the stunning new album from electronic metallers The Browning, is finally here! Orders are shipping now, and we're pleased to be offering a bundle deal with the choice of 8 different T-shirt designs, including a couple of limited edition tie-dye shirts.

Recorded at Planet Red Studios in Richmond, Virginia with producer ANDREAS MAGNUSSON (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, IMPENDING DOOM), the album features the band's trademark electronics expertly blended with crushing metal riffs. With their sound now more refined since tours with the likes of Chimaira, Soilwork, Blessthefall, We Came As Romans and our own Eskimo Callboy, the album follows on from their debut album, "Burn This World", perfectly, and further enhances their reputation as one of the most unique bands around.


The depth shatteringly heavy new album, 'Incisions' from masters of brutality Oceano, is shipping now ahead of it's 14th of October release. Undoubtedly the heaviest new release from Earache of 2013, 'Incisions' shows how relentless touring pays off with Oceano's most focussed and musically savage album to date!

With a choice of three new T-shirt designs or the awesome album artwork on a crew-neck sweatshirt, why not pick up the album as part of a bundle deal and save yourself a bit of money while you're at it?

Aside from the aforementioned new Oceano and The Browning designs, we also have new shirts from Carnage, Cult Of Luna, The More I See, Morbid Angel, Vektor, plus just added this week, three shirts from sci fi death metal pioneers Nocturnus!


Interzone / Re: ♥ sodomy ♥
« on: October 05, 2013, 12:24:19 PM »
So to the question: “Is sodomy a sin?”  According to the Bible verses stated above, the acts of the people of Sodom were indeed sinful and we too would be sinning if we behaved in the same manner.  But, is anal sex between a man and wife equivalent to today’s standard definition of sodomy?  I would have to say, according to the Bible, no. It is true that homosexual men engage in anal sex but it is also true that they engage in oral sex. They also hold hands and kiss one another. Does the fact that a homosexual does these things too mean that heterosexuals are forbidden to do these acts as well? It most certainly does not. I believe that God created our desires and it is we who have perverted it. God gave sex to us as a gift for a husband and a wife to share and it is we who have perverted that. Homosexual sex was stolen from heterosexuals, not the other way around. We can conclude that anal sex or any sex by a homosexual is sin. We can also conclude that according to the Bible anal sex, oral sex, or any sex by an unmarried heterosexual couple is sin too. But if you are married and both partners agree to any sex act within the confines of your marriage bed, it is indeed pure.

Queensr˙che film mini movie
Queensr˙che: Ad Lucem     


October 4, 2013 



Legendary Seattle rockers, Queensr˙che recently filmed a 'mini movie' with the tracks, "Spore" "Midnight Lullaby" "A World Without" and "X2" providing the score to a 10-plus minute story, dubbed Queensr˙che: Ad Lucem. The film was created by Veva Entertainment Co. with director Daniel Andres Gomez Bagby and producer Marco De Molina and was filmed last month on location at Central City Stages in Los Angeles. Todd La Torre, vocalist for Queensr˙che has issued the following statement:


     "We decided to take a different approach with this video, which is comprised of four pieces of music from our latest self-titled release, Queensr˙che.  It's a conceptual mini-movie music video that invites the audience to scratch beneath the surface a bit, rather than the usual "chewed food" that so many are used to being fed.  We really wanted to deviate from a performance type of video so the music and story-line could be the main focus."


     La Torre also adds, "The overall theme of the song Spore is one that deals with personal demons, relationship struggles, career pressures, personal/professional morals and ethical dilemmas.  These are issues we all face on some level and the video touches upon them all.  Midnight Lullaby/A World Without deals with the loss of a mother during childbirth, leaving a father as a single parent and struggling to move forward through the turmoil. X2, though it opens up our album, provides for a nice outro to it all. The end result is a roller coaster of emotion in an effort to find a healthy resolve. Given our history, we feel that this multifaceted conceptual video, along with a great cast of actors to suit, will really resonate with our fans."


Queensr˙che first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP Queensr˙che. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full-length album "The Warning" in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of "Rage For Order", Queensr˙che continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80's. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album "Operation: Mindcrime", which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best-selling concepts records of all time, and set the stage for continued sold out performances around the world. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "Empire" in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV "viewer's choice" award for the #1 chart topping hit "Silent Lucidity". During the next ten years, the band continued to release albums and tour the world to sold-out audiences. Queensr˙che has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and have continued to break new ground and push their creative process.

Metal and Marginalisation: Gender, Race, Class and Other Implications for Hard Rock and Metal

University of York, UK, 11th April 2014

Since the rising dawn of metallectualism, heavy metal scholars have acknowledged metal’s capacity to creatively explore forms of individualism, alterity and otherness. Further, metal frequently casts itself as a marginalised group in mainstream society, with fans and musicians often reveling in their outsider status which is reinforced by references to non-conforming traits (Satanism, for example). As self-proclaimed outsiders, a rhetoric of inclusion is frequently mobilised to establish an oppositional relationship against the ‘nasty’ and exclusionary mainstream. Yet, despite the significance of metal’s discursive construction as an inclusive space outside of the mainstream, the symbolic boundaries of metal are strictly policed. With the assertion of the labels ‘kvlt’ and ‘trve’ defining an authentic embodiment of black metal’s otherness, heavy metal’s borders are performatively marked and reified in its categorising terminology; in behavioural norms; through social relation and the organisation of scenic spaces. This contributes towards the establishment of a dominant framework of a classed/ gendered/sexualised/racialised identity, marking belonging to the ‘imaginary community’ of metal. Furthermore, postulations of metal as an ‘all-encompassing’ community would seem to be belied in the UK by the overwhelming whiteness, maleness and straightness of its participants, both on and off the stage.

This symposium seeks to address the spaces ‘in-between’ (Bhabha, 2004) metal’s boundaries of identification, exploring how metal does or does not accommodate groups that are marginsalised within its own community - the individuals negotiating metal’s edges: women; LGBTQ; ethnic minorities and others who do not fit the metal bill. Exploring the ‘cultural liminality’ (ibid) of metal, we want to examine how metal’s reliance on concepts of otherness often unites it aesthetically and ideologically, yet the alterity of minority discourses within metal appear to challenge its totality and solidity. We want to question how much space metal creates for alternative forms of alterity or otherness, furthermore, how the ideal of individualism plays out in symbolic practices that differentiate and mark the limits of community.

Further provocations may include:

·         What does it mean to exist on the edges of what is already exterior?

·         What does it mean to hold a minority identity in the space of metal?

·         Does the narrative of metal’s inclusivity have a basis in lived experience? Or are such groups tolerated rather than included?

·         How does the language used in metal’s discourses (e.g. genre terms) construct frameworks that include or exclude?

·         Encounters with racism at metal events

·         How does metal contribute to or confront frameworks of racialisation?

·         The use of sexism, racism and/or homophobia as shock tactic

·         How does extremity promote cultures of inclusivity or marginalisation?

·         Structural hegemonic whiteness, maleness and heterosexuality

·         Can the struggles at the margins be attributed more positively to understanding metal as an agonistic site, with contestation at its core?

·         Discourses of metal vs. the mainstream: a positive identification of marginalisation, the importance of alterity and the passion with which individual’s seek to position metal as alternative to the mainstream.

·         Being ‘trve’, belonging and the exchange of cultural/symbolic capital in metal scenes.

·         Metal as marginal - recent developments in policy: The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and the legal fight to protect alterity.

This one day symposium will have a less formal feel, allowing space for a mixture of presentation formats including conventional papers, shorter discussions of research-in-progress, and alternative, performative or practice presentations (music performances, visual arts, deep listenings, etc). We also hope to produce a journal special issue or edited collection  following the event.

We invite abstracts or proposals (300 words) for papers, workshops, performances and other forms of presentation. Please send to Rosemary Lucy Hill, Caroline Lucas and Gabrielle Riches (rlh504@york.ac.uk, carolinelucas@hotmail.co.uk, G.Riches@leedsmet.ac.uk) by 16th December 2013.

Metal / Shadow Kingdom to release Lost Breed early doom metal albums

Shadow Kingdom Records Announces the Release of LOST BREED Reissues

Continuing with its knack for unearthing hidden treasures, Shadow Kingdom Records has announced the October 15 reissues of The Evil in You and Me and Save Yourself from 90s' Doom Rockers LOST BREED. Both albums have been remastered for maximum sonic power. Shadow Kingdom Records owner Tim McGrogran gives us a little LOST BREED history and the details behind each album. 


"Back in the 80s it was fairly common for bands to move to LA to try and make it big. LOST BREED is among the many bands that made that trip from NY to LA. They soon met up with the legendary Scott 'Wino' Weinrich, whom at the time had already had two SAINT VITUS records under his belt, was soon to be releasing a third SAINT VITUS record, and was also in the process of restarting THE OBSESSED. Even with all of those irons in the fire, he started writing and jamming with LOST BREED. With his main roots and influence coming from the Maryland Doom Metal scene, it's no surprise that LOST BREED fits right in there stylistically. With that said, Wino did lay a nice foundation for the band to build and grow from. Wino only appears on their first Demo and doesn't appear on either album since at some point he probably realized he had too much going on and two bands to focus on were enough. With all of the music out there, it's going to be a big surprise for people who haven't heard this band yet. They have extremely unusual songwriting skills that not only make you scratch your head, but also bang your head at the same time. Once the music of LOST BREED settles in, it's quite the listening experience and after a while you might think to yourself 'How does something that sounds so complex and disjointed work together so well?' So, what does this sound like? We're still trying to figure this out. In short, it just does, but if you're looking for a reference point, then start with THE OBSESSED and some old SOUNDGARDEN and play both records at the same time. The Evil in You and Me is arguably the first "Doom Rock" album to ever exist. Some might call it 'Stoner Rock' (we wouldn't agree), but whatever it is, it's pretty groundbreaking."

"Save Yourself picks right up where The Evil in You and Me ends. This album is a little more straightforward in the songwriting department, but it still has that quirky charm about it. It's probably a little more doomy and with that a little more accessible than The Evil in You and Me. Both Save Yourself and The Evil in You and Me are essential and you definitely need both if you like this style of music. These guys might have had a short-lived career, but we probably got the cream of the crop out of them before they called it quits. They were a band that came out at the wrong time when the world wasn't ready for them. It's a shame because if they were more well known, they would probably influence a ton of bands. The one thing that's great about LOST BREED is that this stuff never gets stale. You discover something new with each listen and after years of hearing them, the well of new sounds never runs dry."

Metal / Saxon was inspiration for "Spinal Tap"

avy metal band Saxon releases "Unplugged and Strung Up" Nov. 19, 2013. — Courtesy photo


Let us now pay respect (well, a little) to Saxon, the not-so-great lost hope of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement, which propelled Def Leppard and Iron Maiden to stardom in the early 1980s.

Saxon, which plays here Thursday, Oct. 3, at Ramona Mainstage, briefly seemed destined for fame, undaunted by a lack of vision and skill. Or, as I wrote in my U-T San Diego review of the band’s 1985 California Theater concert: “Saxon performed with all the ability and finesse of a group of roller derby contestants crashing into a wall.”

In hindsight, that was precisely the band’s charm, even if it eluded me at the time. Below are some other reasons I now have a fondness for Saxon, one of the inspirations for the classic 1983 film satire “This is Spinal Tap.” (Tap member Harry Shearer went on the road with Saxon to take notes, before filming began. He was especially impressed with original Saxon bassist Steve Dawson's trademark stage move, which found Dawson playing one open string on his bass with his right hand, while holding his left arm in the air, fist proudly clenched.)
