Artwork and Track Listing Revealed
|Almost six years have passed since the world saw a new studio album from Metal Icons W.A.S.P. This October 2nd, the wait ends, as Blackie Lawless and the legendary rockers W.A.S.P. will release their long awaited new album and Napalm Records debut Golgotha. Today the artwork and track listing have been revealed.
Frontman Blackie Lawless on the new album Golgotha:
“There are times in any band’s career that somehow all things mesh together. Their experiences, influences, and personal timing bring them into a common space. This has happened with this record. Four years in the making has provided direction, but even greater reflection. Golgotha, where Christ was crucified – Hebrew for “the place of the skull”.”
Golgotha is available for pre-order from the Napalm Records Webstore in North America HERE and Europe HERE.
Golgotha Track Listing:
2. Last Runaway
4. Miss You
5. Fallen Under
6. Slaves of the New World Order
7. Eyes of My Maker
8. Hero of the World
W.A.S.P. came out of the Los Angeles Metal scene in 1982 gaining notoriety for their shock rock antics. With a career spanning over 3 decades, 17 world tours, and now their 15th studio album, they are a metal band that has evolved in maturity without having lost their signature sound, unlike many of their peers from their origins. Golgotha will continue down the path that 2007’s Dominator and 2009’s Babylon started on, both in production style and theme. Years in the making, Golgotha will undoubtedly lead the listeners on the emotionally epic undertaking that W.A.S.P. has become acclaimed for!

Artwork, Track Listing and First Song Unveiled!
|Recent Napalm Records signees AUDIOTOPSY, the powerhouse foursome featuring guitarist Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne, Hell Yeah), drummer Matt McDonough (Mudvayne), vocalist Billy Keeton (Skrape) and bassist Perry Stern will release their debut album Natural Causes August 28th. Today the stunning artwork, track listing and first song have been revealed.
Get an exclusive first listen to the opening track from Natural Causes entitled “Headshot” courtesy of Loudwire HERE!
Natural Causes is available for pre-order via the Napalm Records Webstore HERE.
Self-produced at The Porch Studio in Orlando, Florida with engineer Tim Laud, the guys maintained their singular perspective with Natural Causes. “The focus was to write solid, hooky, big riff songs,” declares Greg. “We didn’t want to sound or look like every other band. It’s not supposed to be regular. We’re all building this vision together.” Merging intricate instrumentation with a seamless knack for melody, they conjured up a style as heavy as it is hypnotic. “We got a vibe going”, states Greg. You could call it ‘Progressive Hard Rock’.”
Album opener “Headshot” pairs a slithering riff and steamrolling percussion with an anthemic punch. “It’s from the point-of-view or the eyes of, not necessarily a soldier, but anybody who’s in battle and in the trenches”, states Billy. “Metaphorically speaking, it’s life through the eyes of somebody fighting a battle.”
With extensive tour plans in the works, it will undoubtedly be a very busy remaining 2015 and beyond for AUDIOTOPSY. For now, they urge you to simply close your eyes, open your mind, and let Natural Causes do the talking for them.
Natural Causes Track Listing:
2. All We Know
4. The Calling
5. H2O (Interlude)
7. Disguise Your Devils
8. Burn the Sky
10. Darken the Rainbow
11. Frozen Scars
12. Natural Causes (Outro)

|As Detroit, Michigan’s WALLS OF JERICHO prepares to enter the studio to record their Napalm Records debut and first album in over seven years, the band is asking for their fans to help be a part of the process. WALLS OF JERICHO are asking their fans to record themselves saying the phrase “I Am Relentless”. The band will then take these clips and make them part of an intro for a song on the new album. Please email the audio clips to email@example.com. They can be iPhone or Smart Phone voice recordings.
The song is attached to the Relentless Foundation. The mission of the Relentless Foundation, is to build relationships, change lives by uniting strong men and women with even stronger children.
The Relentless Detroit Foundation was created to raise money, awareness and support for local MI families with children diagnosed with life threatening illnesses.
The foundation raises the bulk of the money donated by hosting a yearly powerlifting meet. Power lifters from the United States and Canada come together for this event after spending months training and raising funds to support the families involved. This event is modeled after a powerlifting fundraiser that takes place annually in Minnesota.
Relentless Detroit and Relentless Minnesota work closely to support each other during both events.
Leading up to the Relentless Detroit powerlifting meet other fundraisers are coordinated by Relentless Detroit supporters. These events help cover operating costs associated with the meet, in addition to funds for the families. The events that take place outside of the two day powerlifting meet also facilitate relationships between the lifters, families and everyone involved.
Our goal is to not only raise money for these families, but also help strengthen and add to their existing support system.
Seemingly overnight, stylized bands playing strains of melodic hardcore have sailed up the pop charts. But for WALLS OF JERICHO things have played out a bit differently. During the scene’s ascension, the band’s members have all but shunned the idea of a genre tag or an “image” and have instead focused their energies on making music that will survive strictly on its musical merits.
Most bands in the world can be lumped into one category or another, they are shuffled, redefined, and in that way they begin to lose the qualities that could make them important or meaningful. The greatest bands, the most influential or memorable, are the ones who don’t try to fill the role set for them, who don’t pursue anything other than the desire to make music, and the need to express that art to an audience. From the start this has been the mind-set of WALLS OF JERICHO.
WALLS OF JERICHO is:

We are now a little less than two months away from GWAR B-Q 2015. GWAR’s 30th birthday bash is shaping up to be the most insane party of the summer! VIP Tickets for the event are Almost Sold Out! There is still time Bohabs!So, what are you waiting for? Word in Antarctica is that Phil Anselmo, one of the only humans brutal enough to hang with GWAR, will be on hand for an exclusive celebrity signing for VIP ticket holders ONLY!! Phil will be joined by a lavish list of other artists appearing at the VIP Meet & Meat such as, Clutch, Cro-Mags, Ghoul, Goatwhore and many more. But that’s not all, in addition to the numerous other benefits, VIP‘s will also enjoy exclusive indoor bathrooms in which to void their hideous waste. Why poop with the plebes in the port-a-potties when you have the cash to assure your turds a place at the top of the pile? And if escaping the chemical toilets isn’t enough, VIP‘s will also have a refuge from the sun and chaos while enjoying the shade from their very own private VIP Pavilion!
Always one for charity, GWAR‘s manager, Sleazy P. Martini has further sweetened the pot by adding the Express Band; a special wristband that grants access to Express Lanes throughout the festival, providing shorter lines everywhere from the entrance gates to the merch booth, and lines for beer tickets and port-o-potties.
“That’s right Bohabs, now you you can experience for one day the awesomeness that is my entire life. You’re welcome.”
To make sure things run smoothly, numerous staff will be in place to monitor lines at all event booth locations including the entrance gate, merchandise, beer sales and port-o-potties. Express Bands are included in the VIP and Deluxe Ticket packages, and this is retroactive, so if you have already purchased a ticket package, you will still get your wristband at the festival. VIP ticket holders will already have all of their credentials prior to the event for the easiest of access. Deluxe ticket holders and Express Band purchasers will pick up their Express Bands at the gate through the express lane. VIP swag bag and Deluxe official GWAR B-Q event t-shirt will be picked up at the Merchandise booth. Express Bands can also be purchased à la carte online ($19) at http://gwarbq.com/buy-tickets or at the door on the day of the festival ($25). All sales are subject to availability. In order to keep lines short, a limited number of these express wristbands will be available, so get them while they’re hot! Don’t miss out on all of the killer benefits and new additions. Get your Express Wristband and Tickets HERE.
But despair not intrepid Bohab! Even if you can’t afford the upgrades, there are several changes this year that will ensure the event runs smooth as a porn star’s pussy. Lines will be more manageable thanks to the addition of Cash Lanes at all event booths, including entrance gates, merchandise and beer ticket sales. As in years past, it will be hot as fuck at the GWAR B-Q, and when it is hot as fuck people want to keep cool and stay hydrated. This year GWAR B-Q will be providing plenty of FREE GWATER for everyone in attendance. Of course, the main concern of most booze addled Bohabs is ready access to gallons and gallons of BEER! Thanks to our friends at Pabst Blue Ribbon and Loveland distributors there will be 3 Beer Trucks on site and 4 GWAR Beer Kiosks selling the cherished nector of the gods, Oderus Ale, brewed by Cigar City. So rest assured Bohabs…WE WILL NOT RUN OUT OF BEER! And finally, where oh where will you piss it all away? No less than 50 portable crappers at this years event are guaranteed to cut down the number of drunken idiots waiting cross-legged to empty their beer bloated bladders. All this is to say; GWAR-B-Q 2015 will be bigger, better and wetter than ever!
As an added bonus, we’ve created The Ultimate Bohab Guide to all things GWAR B-Q. This all-encompassing checklist and guide will ensure every Bohab’s maximum pleasure while attending the legendary GWAR B-Q. Answers to any and all of your questions can be found at gwarbq.com. All Habs should pay particular attention to the handy FAQ page at https://gwarbq.com/faq.

Ten Years of Pussy Out Now on SPV/Steamhammer
|Two weeks ago, southern hard rockers NASHVILLE PUSSY released Ten Years of Pussy, a retrospective of the bands ten years of working with SPV/Steamhammer. In support of the release NASHVILLE PUSSY are hitting the road on an extensive North American tour including appearances at the Ink-N-Iron Festival in Nashville, TN as well as the Full Terror Assault Festival in Cave In Rock, IL. The tour kicks off August 7th and will wrap up on September 13th in Memphis, TN. A complete list of dates can be found below. Expect additional dates to be added as well.
Ten Years Of Pussy highlights the band’s most relevant work of their decade history on label SPV. Up The Dosage (2014), featuring rock solid bassist Bonnie Buitrago, has been called “NASHVILLE PUSSY’S Back In Black” and was Pick Of The Week on That Metal Show. From Hell To Texas (2009) was recorded at Willie Nelson’s studio in Texas and featured some of the band’s strongest songwriting to date. And Get Some (2005), was the first SPV release and the first collaboration with Daniel Rey, and has more hooks than a hillbilly’s tackle box. And of course the bonus live CD includes the ultimate version of Nutbush City Limits with special guest Ron Heathman from The Supersuckers on guitar.

Debut Album Out Late Summer
|AUDIOTOPSY, the powerhouse new band featuring guitarist Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne, Hell Yeah), drummer Matt McDonough (Mudvayne), vocalist Billy Keeton (Skrape) and bassist Perry Stern have signed a worldwide deal with Napalm Records. Their debut album is scheduled for release in late summer 2015.
“AUDIOTOPSY is the band that has been waiting to happen,” says Greg. “All the stars aligned and here we are. It’s some of the best music I’ve been a part of. We all cannot wait for everyone to hear it and we’re excited to join forces with Napalm to make it all happen! See ya on tour!”
“We are thrilled to announce that AUDIOTOPSY has signed with Napalm Records! All of the members have already left their mark on the music scene with different groups before and we’re glad to be part of the AUDIOTOPSY story that will certainly follow suit! The debut record will be released later this year and leave no doubt that this is a highly creative and innovative group of musicians,” states Napalm Records Vice President Thomas Caser.
Extensive tour plans are in the works for what will undoubtedly be a very busy remaining 2015 and beyond in support of the new album. So expect much more news from these guys in the weeks and months ahead.
Matt prophetically adds: “Sometimes your world only changes once. Sometimes your world changes forever. Sometimes we get to change together. AUDIOTOPSY welcomes you, the change and the future. Thanks for joining us on our journey.”
