WARRIOR SOUL have released a music video for Alice Cooper’s ‘Elected’

the song taken from the forthcoming covers album ‘Cocaine And Other Good Stuff‘, which will be out on November 13th, 2020 via Livewire/Cargo Records UK. The YouTube video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/RmejvhvPUBg

Tracklist:

1. Good Times Roll (The Cars)
2. Cocaine (J.J. Cale)
3. Crosstown Traffic (Jimi Hendrix)
4. Cold Gin (Kiss)
5. D.O.A. (Van Halen)
6. Elected (Alice Cooper)
7. Outlaw (Motörhead)
8. Firehouse (Kiss)
9. Get Down Tonight (KC and the Sunshine Band)
10. We’re An American Band (Grand Funk Railroad)
11. Living After Midnight (Judas Priest)

The album is an incendiary compilation of songs that everyone in the band, both current and previous members, had some input choosing, and it shows true honesty in the recordings, making it a fresh take on some very listenable rock jams.

Kory Clarke – “We wanted to make a record that was not about all the crap we are all living in, as it seems like a well worn path for . So, I had to think out of the box“.

The album was recorded all over the western world (Edinburgh – Scotland, Newcastle – England, Copenhagen – Denmark, L.A. – USA, NYC- USA, Chicago – USA, Detroit – USA, Sheffield – UK, Costa Blanca – Torrevieja – Spain) in home studios.

The idea for a covers album started when mainman Kory Clarke  was contacted by legendary rock photographer, Alex Ruffini‘s brother, enquiring if Warrior Soul would record a cover of a KISS song, which was Alex Ruffini‘s favourite band, for a tribute in aid of Cancer Research. Warrior Soul recorded ‘Cold Gin‘. Once the band started recording, it sounded really positive and they decided to assemble a complete record of covers ranging from Motörhead to KC and the Sunshine Band.

Kory Clarke – “I contacted many of the musicians who have played with Warrior Soul recently and asked if they wanted to be part of it – everyone was very much up for it and ready to go. We called John Dryland at Livewire/Cargo Records, and he said ‘of course, go for it‘, the irony of recording ‘Good Times Roll’ during a global pandemic really works as you can hear the sneer of sarcasm right through every chorus!

Warrior Soul are known for recording some electrifying covers previously including songs by Joy DivisionIggy Pop and David BowieKory Clarke has performed on several compilation and tribute albums singing other acts songs but this is the first complete album of its kind from Warrior Soul.

Warrior Soul have taken their straight-ahead, honest, full-on rock n’ roll approach to these songs and encourage you to raise a glass and sterilize your tooter – cause there ain’t no vaccine for this jamdemic.

Line Up:

Kory Clarke – Vocals
Dennis ‘El Guapo’ Post – Guitars
Adam Arling – Guitars
John Hodgson – Guitars
Christian Kimmett – Bass
Kath Edmonds – Drums
Ivan Tambac – Drums
John Besser – Drums
Geoff Yeaton – Horns, Sax

Warrior Soul is a Hard Rock Band originally from New York City, with band members from Scotland, UK and Scandinavia. The band is lead by Singer Songwriter Kory Clarke.

YAUTJA SIGN TO RELAPSE RECORDS; NEW FULL-LENGTH ALBUM COMING 2021

Photo Credit: Scott Evans

Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Nashville underground trio YAUTJA!

Formed in 2010, YAUTJA has made waves across the metal scene for the past decade. Featuring members of several other musical projects including Thou, Coliseum, Mutilation Rites and more, YAUTJA amalgamate death metal, hardcore punk, grind and noise rock into a furious sound of their own.

YAUTJA Comment:

“The members of Yautja have been fans of Relapse artists and releases since middle school and the label has always been an outlet for discovering new and subversive music for us. We couldn’t be more stoked to share the music we’ve been working on over the past few years through this label.”

YAUTJA has released two full lengths and a 12″ EP as well as a handful of demos and splits through Forcefield Records, Gilead Media and Anti-Corporate Music Inc. to critical acclaim. Known for their pummeling live shows, YAUTJA has toured with the likes of Revocation, Exhumed, Dropdead, Inter Arma, Cult Leader, Rivers of Nihil, Black Breath, and more.

In 2020, the band headed to Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio in Chicago to document their newest material – engineered by Scott Evans/Antisleep Audio and mastered by Brad Boatright/Audiosiege. 2021 will see the release of a new YAUTJA full length. More information about this release, and more, will be revealed in the months to come.

“Nashville trio Yautja are a prog-minded act that combines grindcore and Amphetamine Reptile-era noise with the artier shades of hardcore and death metal. Yautja doesn’t just stack hairpin turn after hairpin turn—an approach that was tired by technical death metal’s mid-’90s peak. Instead, bassist Kayhan Vaziri, guitarist Shibby Poole, and drummer Tyler Coburn create a highly malleable, mercury-like alloy that changes shape with liquid ease yet retains the solidity of its structure.”PITCHFORK

YAUTJA Is:

Kayhan Vaziri – Bass/Vocals
Tyler Coburn – Drums/Vocals
Shibby Poole – Guitars/Vocals

DEVILDRIVER Reveals Surreal Music Video for Anthemic New Single “Wishing”

Watch the New “Wishing” Music Video HERE
*NEW RELEASE DATE*
New Album, Dealing With Demons I, out October 2, 2020
Pre-Order HERE
Top-charting dark groove metal originators DEVILDRIVER will release part one of their highly-anticipated double album, Dealing With Demons I, on its new release date of October 2, 2020 via Napalm Records. Today, DEVILDRIVER continues to bestow fans with a steady stream of content leading up to the album’s impending release – following up on standout singles “Keep Away From Me”, “Iona” and “Nest Of Vipers” with their most heart-wrenchingly earnest offering to date, “Wishing”.
As Dealing With Demons I explores the purging of a different demon per track, “Wishing” illustrates the theme of loss – more specifically, wishing a loved one would return. The clean vocals sung on “Wishing” mark frontman Dez Fafara’s first in DEVILDRIVER history, harking back to his Goth roots. Influences of Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy and more can be heard in Dez’s brooding vocal delivery on the verses, while a heavy chorus punches with raw emotion as he screams, “wishing you were with me right now!”
The dreamlike official music video for “Wishing” – the band’s most surreal visual yet – places each member of DEVILDRIVER in a nightmarish state, trying to physically reach their loved ones just to have them disappear once they’ve nearly grasped them. Echoing the lyrical themes of the track itself, Dez and his bandmates experience this loss again and again down an eerie rabbit hole, surrounded by faceless beings and distorted imagery.
The footage seen in the “Wishing” video was filmed in separate locations by each band member, with social distancing practiced as a top priority. The finished product was directed by Vicente Cordero/Industrialism Films.
Watch the surreal official music video for “Wishing” HERE:

Iona
Dealing With Demons I marks the band’s first release of new, original material since 2016’s acclaimed Trust No One. This isn’t just the most vicious DEVILDRIVER material to date, but some of their most lethally memorable too. Produced and engineered by Steve Evetts with additional engineering from guitarist Mike Spreitzer, it’s a triumph of teamwork and tenacity. With new milestones like Dez Fafara’s eerie verses on “Wishing” and the frontman’s first co-authored lyric, Dealing With Demons I ferociously delivers the goods while kicking open several new doors for DEVILDRIVER to power through in the future. From the self-explanatory, explosive opener “Keep Away From Me” to the chilling imagery of “Iona” – both of which held DEVILDRIVER at #1 on the Metal Contraband charts for five weeks straight – this album is powerful evidence that Dez and his band mates have given DEVILDRIVER a volatile, visceral kick in the ass. Demons are getting dealt with in the harshest of manners.
Fans should be prepared for what is to come with the second volume of the double album, which promises to go even harder. This is a two-part acceleration into the future – after witnessing Dealing With Demons I, listeners will be clamoring for the second half!
Dealing With Demons I Tracklist:
1. Keep Away From Me
2. Vengeance Is Clear
3. Nest Of Vipers
4. Iona
5. Wishing
6. You Give Me A Reason To Drink (feat. Simon Blade Fafara)

CREMATORY Releases New Video, “Like The Tides”

Latest Album, Unbroken, Out Now via Napalm Records
Watch The Video HERE | Order The Album NOW!
“‘Cause love is changing like the seasons, changing like the tides It’s somehow like the days turn into nights“
German pioneers of European gothic metal CREMATORY have released a heart-wrenching version of the 90s ballad “Like The Tides” along with an atmospherically arranged music video.
With the cover version of this !distain classic, CREMATORY showcases another aspect of their musical expertise. The accompanying audio-visual features original !distain shots leading up to a vigorous symbiosis of expressive CREMATORY ambience and Connie Andreszka’s vocals.
CREMATORY is well known for their harsh wave of industrial metal and gothic dimness – but this cover version proves that they are maintaining versatility in the latest stage of their long career.
The black and white music video presents both their passion for music and the melodic side of CREMATORY’s musical identity. Their latest release, Unbroken, connects all shades – on the one hand underlining the significance of strength and determination, while on the other, remaining faithful to the darker and existential roots of the scene the band was born in in the 90s. CREMATORY pursue their conquest towards the dark Parnassus of gothic metal finesse, their spirit unbroken ready to face the challenges of life.
CREMATORY about “Like The Tides”:
“This song has been a part of my life since the nineties and symbolizes an emotionally charged ballad, which is perfectly fitting for CREMATORY. I would say it’s like the 2.0 version of our ballad “Perils of the wind”!”

LAMB OF GOD propelled heavy metal into the new millennium two decades ago with the prophetically titled New American Gospel. They followed with 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which made the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake (2004) was the first LAMB OF GOD album to be certified gold by the RIAA, followed by Sacrament (2006), which debuted in Billboard’s Top 10. Wrath (2009) earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock, Rock, and Tastemaker charts and was No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Those No. 1 positions were repeated with Resolution (2012). VII: Sturm und Drang (2015) debuted at No. 3 in North America and in the Top 5 in several countries. The single “512” from VII: Sturm und Drang received a Grammy nod for the “Best Metal Performance,” making it LAMB OF GOD’s fifth Grammy nomination.
A true collaboration between all members of the band, LAMB OF GOD’s eighth studio album is an amalgam of each individual’s contributions, blended to create a singular style. Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler fuel the album with a mountain of riffs, taking what Lamb of God are known for, and unbelievably, upping the ante to new levels. The rhythm section of John Campbell, looming large as a rhythmic shadow, and drummer Art Cruz, who makes his studio debut with LAMB OF GOD here on this record, underpin the proceedings with passion, sweat and expansive dynamics. Vocalist D. Randall Blythe is as angry, insightful, and informed as ever. Never one to shrink from facing the darker aspects of our nature head-on, Blythe delivers with no punches pulled, and as only he and Lamb of God can in 2020.

Following the Friday releaseof their new self-titled album, LAMB OF GOD is connecting with fans through daily online activities today through Thursday, beginning with a “live quarantine video” today at 12 noon EDT/9 a.m. PDT on YouTube.
The video will feature three songs recorded by the band live from quarantine. Tune in to watch at https://lamb-of-god.lnk.to/QuarantineSessionVideo.
Later today, guitarist Willie Adler will join Zia Records for a Facebook Live Q&A. Visit https://facebook.com/events/609025426405589/ at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT to watch.

Stay tuned for more activity announcements and details!
In addition to the release of the album, on Friday LAMB OF GOD premiered a video for Lamb Of God’s fourth single, “Gears,” and lyric videos for five of the album’s tracks. Watch the lyric videos at https://lambofgod.lnk.to/LOG/youtube. The highly anticipated album from metal’s reigning kings immediately made waves with press radio and sales, debuting at number one on Overall, Rock and Metal iTunes charts, and number one on Spotify’s Kickass Metal playlist.
The fact that the band’s eighth studio effort would warrant ‘self-titled’ status is a testament to the band’s pride and satisfaction with these songs and this period in their creativity.
A true collaboration between all members of the band, LAMB OF GOD’s eighth studio album is an amalgam of each individual’s contributions, blended to create a singular style. Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler fuel the album with a mountain of riffs, taking what Lamb of God are known for, and unbelievably, upping the ante to new levels. The rhythm section of John Campbell, looming large as a rhythmic shadow, and drummer Art Cruz, who makes his studio debut with LAMB OF GOD here on this record, underpin the proceedings with passion, sweat and expansive dynamics. Vocalist D. Randall Blythe is as angry, insightful, and informed as ever. Never one to shrink from facing the darker aspects of our nature head-on, Blythe delivers with no punches pulled, and as only he and Lamb of God can in 2020.
Audiences got a taste of the first new LAMB OF GOD music in nearly five years with “Checkmate” back in February, followed by “Memento Mori” and the most recent single, “New Colossal Hate.” All four songs will appear on Lamb Of God, the follow-up to VII: Sturm und Drang (2015). The album was once again produced by collaborator Josh Wilbur (Gojira, Korn, Megadeth, Trivium), fueled by a mountain of riffs and looming rhythmic shadows. It is also the band’s first record with Cruz, who sat behind the kit with LAMB OF GOD in 2018 and became an official member the following year. In addition to Chuck Billy, the new album features a guest appearance from Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed). Blythe sounds more driven and insightful than ever on Lamb Of God, offering up the angriest and most comprehensive diatribes, addressing modern life in the current landscape, of his storied career thus far.
LAMB OF GOD propelled heavy metal into the new millennium two decades ago with the prophetically titled New American Gospel. They followed with 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which made the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake (2004) was the first LAMB OF GOD album to be certified gold by the RIAA, followed by Sacrament (2006), which debuted in Billboard’s Top 10. Wrath (2009) earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock, Rock, and Tastemaker charts and was No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Those No. 1 positions were repeated with Resolution (2012). VII: Sturm und Drang (2015) debuted at No. 3 in North America and in the Top 5 in several countries. The single “512” from VII: Sturm und Drang received a Grammy nod for the “Best Metal Performance,” making it LAMB OF GOD’s fifth Grammy nomination.
In 2020, LAMB OF GOD is re-energized and unrelenting, ready to lay claim to the metal throne.
