Metal / Metallica to rock Antarctica in Coke show
« on: October 25, 2013, 12:23:30 PM »
The heavy metal band, known for such classics as "Trapped Under Ice," said it is partnering with Coca Cola Zero for a performance on Dec. 8 near a heliport at the Carlini Station in the South Pole. The base is located on King George Island, also known as Isla 25 de Mayo, and controlled by Argentina.

The band didn't respond to CNNMoney's inquiry as to whether they'll be playing "Trapped Under Ice."


Metal / Turkish metal guitarist founds anarchistic political party

"In the Gezi Party, chairman means spokesperson. Gezi does
not accept any leader," party chairman Cem Koksal, a 37-year old
heavy metal guitarist from Istanbul, said on Twitter.


Metal / Black Yoga
« on: October 25, 2013, 05:48:05 AM »
This is Black Yoga, a take on the ancient Indian practice/frequent girlfriend bonding ritual for those who "get bored with the sound of birds and waterfalls," says Kimee, who concocted the class with her husband Scott (vocalist of a thrash band called Storm King). The room is dark, the new-age talk kept to a minimum, and the soundtrack a mix of trip-hop, industrial rock and doom metal.

"I don't think of it as better or worse than your typical yoga class -- just different, for a different crowd," says Kimee (who also teaches more a traditional class at a suburban health spa).


Metal / Goatcraft in Austin Chronicle
« on: October 25, 2013, 05:47:26 AM »
It took blood-soaked San Antonio pianist Lonegoat to make the direct connection between classical funeral dirges and occult metal. On All for Naught, his Goatcraft proffers neo-classical piano flourishes and mini-concertos of a decidedly dark bent, all minor keys, fingerboard pounding, and enough reverb to make a concert hall sound like a mausoleum. Put these menacing chords through six strings and a broken amplifier and you'd have majestic black metal symphonies. As it stands, Goatcraft's wild-haired piano insanity sounds like The Phantom of the Opera on an absinthe bender. (Thu., 8pm, Dirty Dog Bar)


Metal / Man Slashes Three At Death Metal Concert
« on: October 25, 2013, 05:47:00 AM »
Witnesses told police Ortega was involved in some sort of scuffle inside the bar, then pulled out a box cutter and started slashing the victims.

Death metal bands Deicide and Broken Hope were performing at the club.

 "I strike and strike down and nail down the tongue, the eyes, the wrath, the ire, the anger, the procrastination, the opposition of Iennys," part of the curse reads in translation. Kyrilla asks the gods to ensure that "he in no way oppose, so that he say or perform nothing adverse to Kyrilla … but rather that Iennys, whom the womb bore, be subject to her…"

To obtain her goal Kyrilla combined elements from four religions, Robert Walter Daniel, of the Institut für Altertumskunde at the University of Cologne, told LiveScience in an email. Of six gods invoked, four of them are Greek (Hermes, Persephone, Pluto and Hecate), one is Babylonian (Ereschigal) and one, Abrasax, is Gnostic, a religion connected to early Christianity. Additionally, the text contains magic words such as "Iaoth" that have a Hebrew/Judaism origin.

SKINLESS: Reunited Death Metal Assassins Welcome Second Guitarist; 2014 Live Assaults Announced


Reunited death metal assassins, SKINLESS, are pleased to welcome new guitarist Dave Matthews to their rambunctious ranks. Matthews will join founding guitarist, Noah Carpenter, in full-on axe combat yet to be experienced by mere mortals.


Comments Carpenter: "Yeah, yeah....his name is Dave Matthews, but I assure you he's much more metal than that crappy acoustic guy. It's good to have Dave on board. We've known him from the local Albany metal scene for almost 20 years. Dave and I also play together in the thrash band Armor Column and I thought he'd be an asset to SKINLESS as well. Dave is an excellent musician. We wanted to add guitar solos and more dual guitar attack to the new SKINLESS material. It also allows us to play the guitar harmonies from the previous albums that we haven't been able to do live. He's been rehearsing with us since we reunited but he wasn't quite ready for the 70-minute set at Delaware Death Fest recently. He'll be joining us on stage at Denver Black Sky in December. We're ready to crush!"


Adds vocalist Sherwood Webber: "Adding Dave is a great introduction to the new chapter of SKINLESS. Being in the band now feels like a return to the earlier days with everyone having a focus on complete brutality. It's a new era for us, but a return to the original spirit of SKINLESS. I'm excited to have Dave in the band, his work ethic and talent are beyond question and will help us create the best record in the bands history."

SKINLESS reformed earlier this year under the original Progression Towards Evil lineup featuring Carpenter, Webber, bassist Joe Keyser and drummer Bob Beaulac. A new and improved SKINLESS on steroids will bring their sonic devastation to the stage this December in Denver, Colorado for the first annual Black Sky gala. Founded by Webber, Denver Black Sky will be held on December 14th, 2013. The three-stage event features a very special "Grind In The Round" stage and offers up a ridiculously sick lineup of: Dying Fetus, Ghoul, Exhumed, Speedwolf, Power Trip, Mammoth Grinder, Call Of The Void, Reproacher, Weekend, Nachos, Iron Reagan, Axeslasher, Primitive Man, Vimana, Of Feather And Bone, Native Daughters, Black Sleep Of Kali, Dead Templeand Flight Of Sleipnir. Following their imminent devastation of Denver, SKINLESS will punish upstate New York with two already sold out shows at the Upstate Concert Hall. Additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks. Get your riot gear ready.


In the meantime, check out new SKINLESS merch at THIS LOCATION.

Metal / TRIPTYKON set to release second album April 24, 2014

TRIPTYKON set to release second album
April 24, 2014

Prowling Death Records/Century Media Records       


October 22, 2013 


TRIPTYKON is the occult/avant-garde metal band formed by Hellhammer/Celtic Frost singer, Tom Gabriel Warrior. After his exit from Celtic Frost in 2008, Warrior is proud to announce the groups' second album, Melana Chasmata, set to be released on April 15 in North America. The album's release will is a collaboration between the group's own label, Prowling Death Records Ltd., and renowned metal giant Century Media Records. This is the same label partnership already responsible for Celtic Frost's final album, Monotheist (2006), Hellhammer's Demon Entrails demo compendium (2008), and Triptykon's debut album, Eparistera Daimones, and Shatter EP (2010).


Melana Chasmata is evolving to be a vastly varied and strikingly dark and heavy album. The album's title may be translated, approximately, as "black, deep depressions/valleys".


Songwriting, arrangement, and recording sessions for Melana Chasmata occurred, intermittently, since 2011. Among the music available for inclusion on the album are songs such as Boleskine House, Stasis, Gate To My Own Death, Demon Pact, Gehinnam, Tree Of Suffocated Souls, Unchristian Anthem, and many more. A final track listing for Melana Chasmata will be issued in due course, along with further details on both album and artwork.


Much like Eparistera Daimones, Melana Chasmata is being produced by Tom Gabriel Warrior and Triptykon guitarist V. Santura, and recorded and engineered by V. Santura at his own Woodshed Studio in Bavaria, Germany, as well as at Triptykon's bunker in Zurich, Switzerland.


Tom Gabriel Warrior: "We have been working on Melana Chasmata for some three years, in various shapes and forms. It's not an easy album by any means, and to me personally it reflects an extremely complex gestation period, musically, spiritually, and, due to certain circumstances in my life, emotionally. At the same time, the album unquestionably reflects the continuity I was longing for so much during Celtic Frost's period of self-destruction and demise. Hearing Triptykon creating such utter darkness again and exploring the potential of these new songs has been incredibly invigorating and inspiring."


TRIPTYKON consists of V. Santura (guitar, vocals), Norman Lonhard (drums, percussion), Vanja Slajh (bass), and Tom Gabriel Warrior (voice, guitars).

Metal / The real reason death metal bands love reunions
« on: October 19, 2013, 06:58:24 AM »
In keeping with the rest of the entertainment world's ever-blossoming desire to cling to the warm, fuzzy blanket of existing intellectual property, with its easily calculable returns on investment, it seems like everyone everyone is getting the band back together. And if the band in question never broke up, it's touring on the promise of performing a classic album, often one that dropped in the '80s or '90s, when more people listened to a collection of songs all the way through, and when merely selling tens of thousands of records -- even hundreds of thousands in some cases -- could've been considered a flop. It's the creative equivalent of finding a five-dollar-bill in an old pair of jeans.


Metal / Noisecreep rediscovers classic Deicide
« on: October 19, 2013, 06:57:30 AM »
After a brief news introduction on death metal, the video cuts to Amon at the one minute mark, as a bald man in a tuxedo timidly introduces the band. He explains that they are there to play “a couple original tunes” and lets Glen Benton introduce the rest of the band. After a big hand from the audience, the band breaks into ‘Sacrificial Suicide,’ assaulting multiple senses with their bludgeoning death metal and Carnivore-like stagewear.


Metal / Making metal socially acceptable
« on: October 19, 2013, 06:56:48 AM »
 “Our whole life was turned upside down and I needed to find something, and I found God,” Cavalera said. “I really put my faith in it and it was good to me. (It) made a lot of good things happened spiritually and a lot of my prayers were answered.”

The world music aspect started in the early days of Sepultura with the use of Brazilian tribal sounds. Cavalera expanded it in Soulfly, traveling the world to get sounds from musicians and instruments not typically found on metal records.

Through the years, Cavalera recorded with Serbian Gypsies, reggae musicians, Amazonian tribesmen, Australian Aborigines and R&B singer Asha Rabouin on melodic songs like “flyhigh,” ‘’Tree of Pain” and “Wings.”
