MOB RULES Release Lyric Video For New Single “Sinister Light”

New Album “Beast Reborn” Out August 24th via SPV/Steamhammer


Northern German Metallers MOB RULES have released a new single and lyric video for the song “Sinister Light” which is taken from their forthcoming studio album “Beast Reborn”.
Singer Klaus Dirks describes the song as: “Very spontaneously written, the song is based on a riff, which mainly puts the rhythm into the foreground. It quickly turns into a gripping goosebumps chorus with catchy and equally varied arrangements with a dense atmosphere. It also contains slightly folky influences with a triolic feeling. The content is based on “The Dog of Baskerville”, a Sherlock Holmes novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Supposedly an ancient curse presses on the Family Baskerville: A demon hellhound ambushes the family members in the moor next to the Baskervilles estate. The song takes its title from the mysteriously glowing moor, that enhances the sinister and dark ambience of the story. The Hunter turns into the hunted, as falling victim to his own curse.”

Out Now! PSYCHOSTICK Surprise Fans With Whole New Album “DO”

North American Tour Dates w/ Mushroomhead & Urizen

They’re back!!! The kings of comedy rock PSYCHOSTICK have a new album out now called “DO” and it only took four years to follow their extremely fan loved “IV: Revenge of The Vengeance”. And it wasn’t because they were lazy… NO! But because these geniuses of blending comedy, metal, heavy rock and the occasional spoof cover have been super busy releasing viral videos and touring the world. 

“DO” may have passed fans by real quickly as the band just recently surprised the globe by releasing it during their live webcast on Twitch on July 24th. The band was originally going to reveal just album details but decided what’s better than sharing the whole darn thing with them.

The band comments:

“Whelp, here it is! “Do.” This whole “surprise, nerd! New album!” experiment was extremely fun, and we’re beyond appreciative of your patience and understanding. We agree with you – four years is way too long. We hope to fix that despite what Murph says!

“Do” is our first 100% independent, label-free release since 2003! Our production process is still completely internal, but this time all profits go straight to Psychostick. This is extremely huge for us and we can’t thank you enough.

2018 marked the fifteenth anniversary of our first album, and we’re beyond excited that we’re still kickin’, making globs upon globs of comedy metal. We aim to do this until they kick us out of the old folks’ home or off of Mars. That’s right. We’re goin’ to Mars, damnit.”

“DO” continues PSYCHOSTICK‘s reign as one of the funniest band’s to listen and laugh to. The album features over an hour of variety of laugh track headbanging tunes including singles “Adulting”, because who really wants to grow up and “From The Heart”, a ballad for those you really dislike.

Watch their videos for yourself!

About:

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, and a style of music they’ve coined as ‘humorcore’. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Now residing in Chicago, IL, the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory Psychostick have released five full-length albums–‘We Couldn’t Think of a Title’ (2006), ‘Sandwich’ (2009), ‘Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D’ (2011) and ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ (2014), ‘DO’ (2018) —and two EPs—their holiday album, ‘The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride’ (2007), and ‘The Digital Appetizer’. With their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic), Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!

GWAR and Hatebreed To Co-Headline The “Gore, Core, Metal and More” Tour This Fall

 
 
It’s that time of year again, the time when GWAR comes to destroy your town and eviscerate your eardrums.  However, this is no ordinary tour, this year they do it together with Hatebreed.  The “Gore, Core, Metal and More” tour will be co-headlined by your Lords and Masters GWAR, and the mighty Hatebreed.  Support will come from Miss May I, Ringworm and American Sharks These shows begin October 17th in Buffalo, NY and run through October 28th in Peoria, IA.
On October 29thGWAR will then kick off a headline run, that sees them stopping in New York City on Halloween and continuing their aural (not oral) devastation of the nation through November 19th
“This is the tour you can’t afford to miss. We are bringing you the heaviest in hardcore and the most brutal of gore! We are thrilled to be slaying the nation alongside our brothers in HATEBREED!, belches guitarist Pustulus Maximus
 
“Humans, come, witness the eviscerating, ear splitting majesty and power of GWAR and Hatebreed! Yes, demonstrate your ceaseless dedication to heavy fucking metal in the Pit of Death. There is a very good chance you won’t survive!,” adds vocalist The Berserker Blothar.
 
“Autumn is a lovely time of year to team up w/ GWAR and crush every city in our path. There will be mosh pits, blood, carnage & chaos,” says Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta.
 
Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 20.
 
GWARare out on tour supporting their latest masterpiece “The Blood of Gods” which was released last fall on Metal Blade Records. “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Born of adversity, “The Blood of Gods” is a sonic scar…a question asked and answered…Death cannot kill GWAR. Nothing can. GWAR LIVES MOTHERFUCKERS!
In the 20 years since their definitive debut, Hatebreed have rightfully earned their status as hardcore legends. They’ve remained road warriors, touring constantly and reducing venues to pile of rubble and ash while sharing stages with everyone from Slipknot to Slayer and serving as one of the top-tier headliners on multiple festivals, from Ozzfest to Mayhem to Warped Tour.  Hatebreed‘s latest critically acclaimed album “The Concrete Confessional” is out now via Nuclear Blast.

MUSHROOMHEAD came together when drummer Skinny formed the band as a side project. The band wore masks to go unrecognized, but after only a few shows they developed a rabid and loyal fan base in Cleveland. They released their 1995 self-titled debut album independently and it went on to became an underground hit, which was history in the making because the band really had no proper distribution at the time. Superbuick followed in 1996 and M3 in 1999, all released via an underground street effort. After the band felt its image and hyper-melodic, heavy style of music was being diluted by other bands jumping into this space, the band started to change their look to reflect nothing out there.
 
Universal Records saw the release of XX (a combination of the past independent releases) in 2001. In 2003, XIII was released, spawning the single “Sun Doesn’t Rise” which was featured on MTV: Headbangers Ball and the Freddy Vs. Jason soundtrack. The album also featured the hidden track “Crazy”, a song originally recorded by Seal. The album debuted at #40 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and sold 400,000 copies worldwide. In December 2005, the band signed with the pioneering rock label, Megaforce Records (Metallica, Anthrax, Ministry) and released Savior Sorrow in 2006 and Beautiful Stories For Ugly Children in 2010. In 2014, the band released The Righteous & The Butterfly, which debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart and #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Chart.
Expect more clips and information to be released leading up to the release of VOLUME III!

Mike was passionate about Rock and Roll music, he loved his guitars, his long blonde hair, his black leather vest and his white tank tops. Mike cared deeply for all of his friends and he had a special place in his heart for his best friend Denny. Mike loved his band mates in C4OC and was always grateful to be apart of such a special thing (C4OC) and he was honored to be around an awesome group of men. Mike had a tough road over the last 10 months and we are thankful to God that he is now pain free.

Now the hard part. Rick and John have taken the lead on Mikes funeral service and have come up against some financial obstacles. Mike didn’t have any plans in place (Who does) for any funeral services. We were un aware of the costs associated with burying a loved one. Please consider partnering with us on Mikes burial costs.

HALCYON WAY Reveal Lyric Video For New Track ‘Slaves To Silicon’

American metallers HALCYON WAY have teamed up with Decibel Magazine to premiere a lyric video for a new track “Slaves To Silicon”. The song comes from the band’s upcoming album“Bloody But Unbowed”, set to be released on August 3rd via Agonia Records. Listen to “Slaves To Silicon” HERE.
HALCYON WAY‘s sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal. It can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, progressive and above all, focused on strong songcraft. From Megadeth to Dream Theater, to Testament and Chimaira– HALCYON WAY draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands. With a magnitude of catchy hooks, vocal harmonies a la King’s X or Stryper, and heavy, technical, yet ultimately accessible instrumentation, “Bloody But Unbowed” is sure to please fans of many forms of metal. Be that modern, power, thrash and progressive metal – but also hard rock fans. Crammed full of huge anthemic choruses, shredding solos, and brutal riffs, this release checks off all the boxes.

“Bloody But Unbowed” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mark Lewis (WhitechapelTriviumBad WolvesThreat Signal) and is replete with artwork from Travis Smith (OpethOverkillDeathIced Earth).

The album boasts a very special appearance of “The Nailhead Choir”, with many guest names to be revealed soon.
The band commented: “We are beyond excited to finally unleash this beast upon everyone. This is by far our heaviest album, but it also has the biggest choruses, and it’s just the right next step in our evolution as a band. It was a difficult album to write and put over the finish line, and we cannot wait to have everyone hear it. From the songs to the production to the art, we think all our fans are going to absolutely love it, and when people that haven’t heard Halcyon Way before get a taste, they’re going to be like ‘where has this band been my whole life?'”.
Track Listing:
1. Devolutionize
2. Bloody But Unbowed
3. Blame
4. Slaves To Silicon

 HALCYON WAY – Blame (Official Music Video)
 
HALCYON WAY is the ultimate example of blue-collar work ethic, self-reliant bootstrapping, and hard work & perseverance in spite of nearly insurmountable odds. This award winning band has released four studio albums worldwide through Nightmare Records/Sony RED, and most recently via Massacre Records, and has performed on 4 continents (and about 20 countries and counting), extensively touring with the likes of Saxon, Sabaton, Queensryche, Fates Warning, Fozzy, Skid Row, U.D.O. and Delain.

From the opening seconds of Hank3‘s”Country Heroes” onward, Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 is simply one of the most invigorating records the band have made yet. More importantly, these evocative, irresistible songs have all been wholly rebuilt from the ground up, powered by the classic DEVILDRIVER sound and embellished with Fafara’s unmistakable feral roar. Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 was produced, mixed and recorded with Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Sepultura, The Cure), and co-produced by DevilDriver guitarist Mike Spreitzer. The album was mastered by renowned engineer Alan Douches.

Pre-order Until Death Do We Meet Again” & stream the single here: http://radi.al/DreamChild
Craig Goldy says, “The band Dream Child was conceived during a brainstorming session with Serafino (President of Frontiers) one day while discussing other matters over the phone. I mentioned that I had been listening to my favorite bands a lot recently, Deep Purple and Rainbow’s “Rising” album, among others in that style and had noticed that many people who also love those bands often have the very same comments as one another: “They don’t make music like that anymore!” Even though I said that in passing, Serafino asked me a question that would forever shape my future. He simply asked, “Well, can you?” and I said…..”YES!!!”
During the very first public memorial for our most beloved Ronnie James Dio, I had mentioned that whenever I do start writing original material again that I would utilize everything that I had learned from working side by side with the Master for so many years in such a way that I would hope to make him proud….and here it is! The name is inspired by one of his lyrics on the “Dream Evil” album and the nickname he gave me at the time, Dream Child!
We are so very fortunate to have bassist Rudy Sarzo as a featured guest, Simon Wright on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitars and keyboards, and a surprise vocal discovery from Argentina, Diego Valdez, whose voice will send shivers up your spine!!
This album will bring back memories of the days most people have thought were long gone and never to return, yet it is also new and fresh enough to be unique with some unexpected twists and turns!! No more “same old, same old” here, no fillers. Every song is an oasis in the desert and a rare gem in the coal mines of life in this new world that thinks the past greatness of rock would remain in the past. We’ve brought it back to life once again!!
I am very proud of this album and all who have made this become a reality. There are some big names who’ve lent a hand in the writing and I am amazed at the new and aggressive sound that producer Alessandro Del Vecchio has brought to these songs!!! I hope you all agree….”
