|Following a successful first leg of their North American tour NASHVILLE PUSSY have announced a second leg of their North American tour in support of their their latest studio album Up The Dosage. The album was released this past January via SPV/Steamhammer. The album can be purchased on Amazon and iTunes.
The band has been touring non-stop in support of Up The Dosage and have no intention to stop anytime soon. Today the band has announced a string of tour dates this December. The tour starts December 5th with a hometown show in Atlanta, GA and runs through December 20th in Philadelphia, PA. Support on the tour will come from Valient Thorr and Against the Grain. A complete list of dates can be found below.
Up the Dosage picks up seamlessly where their 2009 release From Hell To Texas left off. And what is more: their five-year hiatus seems to have done frontman Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar) and Ruyter Suys (guitars) good – all 13 new songs (plus two bonus tracks) sound like they were catapulted into to the public from a fountain of youth, rocking in typical Pussy style. Up the Dosage features the first recordings from new bassist Bonnie Buitrago who took over the bass player duties from Karen Cuda.
Rick Beato, known for his production work with Shinedown, mixed the album. He also is responsible for writing the current #1 Song on the Billboard County Chart “Carolina” by the band Parmalee.
NASHVILLE PUSSY came together in 1996. Ever since, the band has been performing a strenuous annual gig marathon, touring with acts like Motorhead, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as playing festivals like Wacken Open Air. Classic albums such as Let Them Eat Pussy (1998), High As Hell (2000), Say Something Nasty (2002) or From Hell To Texas (2009) have caused an international stir, and their single release: Fried Chicken And Coffee” earned the band a Grammy Nomination in the late Nineties in the category ´Best Metal Performance`.

Metal Blade Records Debut Out October 14th
“Deathless may be their fiercest offering yet.”
“100%, back-to-front, Revocation-patented thrash-driven death metal at its best.”
-No Clean Singing
|REVOCATION have spent the last eight years converting fans to their cause with four full length albums, an EP with Scion AV, and a charismatic live show led by guitarist/vocalist Dave Davidson. The Boston-based band also features the staggeringly talented lineup of: Dan Gargiulo on guitar, Brett Bamberger on bass, and Phil Dubois on drums. REVOCATION has firmly been established as one of the genre’s finest and will continue their campaign as part of the Metal Blade Records roster. Their fifth album, “Deathless,” is a fitting debut for the label, and a definitive statement of intent from the band. The artwork for “Deathless” was hand painted by internationally recognized tattoo artist Tom Strom. An in-depth feature on the process of creating the artwork can be seen on Metal Sucks HERE.
After months of waiting “Deathless” will finally see the light of day next Tuesday October 14th via Metal Blade Records. The album is available in CD, 2LP and digital formats. Get a first listen to the title track HERE and be sure to pre-order the album.
As a final preview before the album’s release, REVOCATION has teamed up with Invisible Oranges for an exclusive premiere of the third song released from “Deathless”. The song “Labyrinth of Eyes” can be heard HERE.
” ‘Labyrinth of Eyes’ is collectively one of our favorite songs off the new album. It’s a very diverse song full of angular riffs, epic melodies and a crushing outro,” says front man Dave Davidson.
During the recording process, the band shot a series of videos documenting their work on “Deathless”. The first video in the series can be viewed HERE, the second can be seen HEREand the third can be seenHERE.
The second song from “Deathless” entitled “Madness Opus” can be streamed HERE.
“Deathless” was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts. The album is ten tracks of ambitious, catchy, and undeniably heavy material. Musically, cuts like “Madness Opus” showcase a more deliberate REVOCATION – restrained, if even moderately so, to deliver a slow, near-dirge like track. Alternatively, the title track highlights the diversity of Davidson’s vocals with a catchy chorus. It’s an earworm the likes of which the band had only previously hinted. The rest of the album offers a refreshing variety of music and truly feels like an “album”, rather than a collection of similar tracks. This is a refinement, achieved only through years of focusing on their craft.
Revocation are touring in support of “Deathless” now with Crowbar in North America the tour stops tonight in Dallas, TX and is set to run through October 10th in Houston, TX. This tour will be followed by a full European tour with new label mates Cannibal Corpse and Aeon. Following the European dates REVOCATION will head to China for a run of dates, followed by a trip down under to Australia for a string of shows.

Posted by CrazyIvan in Band Activies, Music News, tags: Brooklyn, Duke, invisible, Magnet, Monster, Oranges, Premieres, Vegan, video
Available November 17th on Napalm Records
|2013 saw the release of MONSTER MAGNET‘s latest album Last Patrol. Now comes Milking the Stars a reimagining of Last Patrol.Met with critical acclaim and supported by a world tour, Last Patrol has become a staple in the MONSTER MAGNET discography.
Milking the Stars will be released November 17th on Napalm Records. “Milking the Stars is a “re-imagined” version of Last Patrol featuring four new songs and live tracks. Today MONSTER MAGNET releases a video for the song “The Duke”. The band worked with acclaimed director Phil Mucci (Pig Destroyer, Opeth, Stone Sour) on the video and today it is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of Brooklyn Vegan HERE and via Invisible Oranges HERE.
Wyndorf about the video:
“When I was a kid I’d sit in my room with my eyes closed, listening to albums and dreaming up spectacular images and stories to go along with the music. Ah, nothing beats youthful imagination.
Fast forward to today and MONSTER MAGNET has done plenty of music videos and try as I have, none of them ever replicated that particular hallucinatory fever that gripped me when I was young. That is until now. Phil Mucci has captured the ‘science fiction noir’ elements of Last Patrol and Milking The Stars and mainlined them into ‘The Duke’. And I didn’t have to do anything but provide the music and make a few notes. Oh, and have a few (extremely enjoyable) conversations with him on the phone.
Mr. Mucci gets it. And the fact he’s so talented means we all get to enjoy this bad-ass piece of ‘fever dream pulp cinema’. Something tells me Phil used to listen to albums with his eyes closed when he was a kid too!
The first track from the album made available for me “No Paradise For Me” can be streamed HERE.
Dave Wyndorf describes Milking the Stars:
“This was a happy experiment for me. It’s not a re-mix record by the current definition. It’s more like Last Patrol in a ‘what if?’ style alternate reality.
‘What if these songs were recorded in 1968?’ ‘What would happen if I turned a pretty song into an angry one?” How would adding creepy organs and Mellotrons affect the emotional vibe of a song?” These are just a few of the questions that roll around in my head when I write and record any album but this time I decided to actually answer them with fully fleshed out, recorded and mixed examples.
The process actually created new songs. That’s the icing on the cake for me. New sounds, new vocals, different instruments and arrangements make for a weird 1960’s vibe totally apart from Last Patrol which was fun for Phil, Bob, Garrett, mixer Joe Barresi and myself to explore.
Finally there’s expanded versions of the songs “Last Patrol” and “Three Kingfishers” as recorded live at the AB club in Belgium, 2014. Both those songs were re-arranged for “maximum rock and psych” before we hit the road last year and feature the debut performance of new MAGNET bassist, Chris Kosnik. Personally, I think they beat the original versions.
Milking the Stars Track Listing:
1. Let the Circus Burn
2. Mindless Ones ’68
3. No Paradise For Me
4. End of Time (B-3)
5. Milking the Stars
6. Hellelujah (Fuzz And Swamp)
7. I Live Behind The Clouds (Roughed Up And Slightly Spaced)
8. Goliath Returns
9. Stay Tuned (Even Sadder)
10. The Duke (Full On Drums ‘N Wah)
11. Last Patrol (Live)
12. Three Kingfishers (Live)

Swedish trio FREAK KITCHEN are back with Cooking with Pagans, their eighth and most frantic album to date. The album was released on September 16th via Laser’s Edge. The album can be ordered HERE.
Thanks to a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, bringing in almost $150,000, a very ambitious animated video, directed by legendary artist (and author of Blacksad) Juanjo Guarnido to the track “Freak of the Week” has finally been completed by a world-class team of animators. The video will premiere this Friday October 10th at the New York Comic Con. Junajo (who also designed the artwork for the new album) Guarindo will be on hand for the video premiere as well. A trailer for the video can be seen HERE.
Front man Mattias IA Eklundh commented on the video:
“Combining the talents of Eisner-Award Winning Artist Juanjo Guarnido (BLACKSAD) and the face-meltingly awesome sounds of FREAK KITCHEN, a spectacular animated music video presented in World Premiere at NYCC, brought to life by an amazing team including Animators whose credentials range from Dreamworks to Disney and the brilliant 3-D studio Fortiche Prod. The video blends traditional 2-D character animation with 3-D computer graphics in a way you’ve never seen before. Come and see for yourself!”
The song “Mathematics of Defeat” is available for streaming HERE.
Check out the band’s video for “Sloppy” HERE.
FREAK KITCHEN has always been a tremendously respected live act and for the first time the energetic live vibe of FREAK KITCHEN has been captured in the studio. With influences stretching from AC/DC to classical South Indian music the three Norsemen, lead by guitar virtuoso Mattias IA Eklundh, truly have a sound of their own. Cooking with Pagans offers eleven intense original songs plus a sophisticated punk pop version of the 1936 hit “Goody Goody” like you’ve never heard it before. Cooking with Pagans is solid, inspired song writing (not to say playing) from start to finish.
FREAK KITCHEN will tour the world from November and the better part of 2015 to support their new release.
Cooking With Pagans Track Listing:
1. Professional Help
2. Freak of the Week
4. Goody Goody
5. (Saving Up For An) Anal Bleach
6. Private Property
7. Mathematics of Defeat
8. I Don’t Want to Golf
10. Come Back to Comeback
11. Ranks of the Terrified
12. Once Upon a Time in Scandanaviastan
Mattias IA Eklundh: Vocals, Guitar
Christer Ortefors: Bass, Vocals

EX ANTHRAX LEGEND NEIL TURBIN STEPS INTO THE BREECH..!
Onslaught vocalist Sy Keeler will sit out the bands upcoming ‘THRASH INVSION TOUR’ of the US / Canada / South America, featuring ‘ONSLAUGHT / ARTILLERY / VX36 due to health issues with his son.
Sy Keeler comments:
I know you are going to be disappointed with my decision as am I, but I sincerely hope you can understand our situation.
My reason for this is the ongoing health issues with my son who has been suffering with a debilitating illness for some time, he is still on a downward path with no sign of any recovery on the horizon, therefore to be away for 2 months will put a lot of pressure on the family and increased anxiety on my son. We also have regular visits to specialists coming up during the next 6 months.
Therefore at this time I am having to think of my family first and sadly I am unable to be away in the Americas for the duration intended..
Onslaught guitarist Nige Rockett adds:
We’re extremely gutted that Sy cannot make this tour and of course we wish Sy’s family all the best in this difficult time, we are positive things will improve in the very near future and look forward to having Sy with us back real soon..
It was a really tough decision for us to make also, but Sy was very supportive that we take out a replacement vocalist to make this tour happen.
So much work had already been carried out by our management / booking agents / promoters behind the scenes it would have been unfair to let our team down, the other bands down and most importantly not to let our fans down.
On a positive note, It’s gonna be awesome to have Neil Turbin on board for the tour, for me he’s always been one of the best Thrash Metal vocalists out there no question, his work on the ‘Anthrax album ‘Fistful of Metal’ was simply amazing and I believe he’s one of the only guys in the genre who could step into Sy’s shoes. I think It brings a unique edge to this tour and I’m sure the fans will really dig what they hear..!!

Front man Charles Elliot on the new song and upcoming tour:
“Here’s another new song for you guys right before we head out on our North American tour!

We hope you all enjoy the brutality and beauty in this one. See you the road soon!”

ABYSMAL DAWN strikes the perfect balance between extreme songwriting and exceptional skill with an infectious blend of technical yet memorable riffs, throat shredding vocals, and crushing rhythms delivered with machine gun precision. With Obsolescence, ABYSMAL DAWN unleash a veritable beast of a record and the perfect example of what 21st century death metal should sound like.

|GWAR, the most brutal band in existence, has bolstered its ranks leading up to the GWAR Eternal Tour. The Berserker Blóthar and Vulvatron are the latest intergalactic warriors to be banished to the pathetic mudball known as Planet Earth. Blóthar; a fat, filthy, frozen space viking, will take over as GWAR‘s lead vocalist. The role of the red-hot cybernetic spitfire known as Vulvatron is more mysterious…Both will feature prominently in the anticipated GWAR Eternal Tour – which promises to be the most shocking and entertaining rock show of the year! Get to know your new masters before they grind you to a bloody pulp!
Origin: The Berserker Blóthar is an ancient shape-shifting holy warrior from the planet Scumdoggia. Blóthar is known to associate with intergalactic outlaw biker gangs
Position: Doggy Style baby! A true Renaissance man; Blóthar sings, he dances, he kills things…
Features: Blóthar wears a ceremonial headdress fashioned from the gigantic antlers and pelt of a Spectral Moon Moose he killed eons ago. He carries a mighty battle axe, an impenetrable shield, and for some reason has grown a set of hideous space udders
Hobbies: Ice fishing and ritual murder
Quote: “I went into a trance of blinding rage. I must have killed a million space apes. I was sleeping it off, and I woke up with a piss boner. I figure, why waste it, you know? So I’m rubbing one out, and the next thing I know, I’m on stage with GWAR in front of thousands of hideous, acne-ridden teenaged humanoids. I was promised there would be wifi, but it’s hit or miss….”
Size: Genetically engineered to the optimum proportions for a female of her species
Origin: Vulvatron has returned from the year 69000, where she was a high-ranking Scumdog assassin in the battle against futuro-fascist forces. Her primary functions include mastery of the arts of war, quantum mechanics, and intergalactic musicology
Position: Head Bitch In Charge
Features: Shock-white dreadlocks, high-tech armor, cybernetic implants, boob spew, prominent posterior
Hobbies: Adapting her superior technology and sexual prowess to the present day, perfecting the chemical formula for Vulvoline – her line of signature drag-racing motor oils, hot yoga
Quote: “I have summoned Planck quantities of energy to navigate the fabric of space-time back to this primitive era on Earth. I believe our wormhole might have slightly malfunctioned upon my arrival, also ushering in a primeval creature from a far earlier era, vaguely resembling a Moon Moose. I shall have to report this anomaly to maintenance. My mission is to alter the current path of GWAR so that they might prevent the darkest period in the history of the Universe! I have calculated an optimum plan of action to achieve…Hey! Quit staring at my tits!”
See the Berserker Blóthar, Vulvatron and the rest of GWAR as they embark upon the GWAR Eternal Tour and search for Oderus Urungus!

|Norwegian black metal tyrants 1349 have premiered their new video for “Slaves” here. “Slaves” is the lead track from the bands forthcoming new album ‘Massive Cauldron of Chaos’.
‘Massive Cauldron of Chaos’ will be released in North America on September 30, and will be available across multiple CD, vinyl, and cassette formats. Pre-orders are available here.
1349 (Ravn -Vocals, Frost [SATYRICON] – Drums, Seidemann – Bass, Archaon – Guitars) also recently announced the ‘Chaos Raids’ European headline tour. A full listing of confirmed 1349 tour dates can be found below.
1349 are streaming three additional songs from the forthcoming album: “Exorcism“, “Cauldron“, and “Slaves“. “Slaves” is available for stream and purchase at iTunes and Bandcamp.
Founded in Norway in 1997, 1349 have remained a constant influence on the Norwegian black metal scene. With a penchant for lightning speed riffing, blazing drums, and apocalyptic lyrics, the band has trail-blazed the underground, surpassing many of their peers through brute musical force. Following a a trio of landmark albums, namely 2003’s Liberation, 2004’s Beyond the Apocalypse, and 2005’s Hellfire, 1349 is set to re-establish their dominance in the world-wide extreme metal scene.
|1349 are currently available for interviews upon request. To speak with the band, please contact Enrique Sagarnaga via email or telephone (215-625-8400). 1349 updates will be made available through the Season of Mist website, and the 1349 website and Facebook page.
