The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (www.diocancerfund.org) was formed in memory of the legendary rock singer Ronnie James Dio, who lost his life to gastric cancer in 2010.   A privately funded 501(c)(3) public charity, the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund has already raised over $2 million since its inception.  Monies raised have been committed to the cancer research work of the T. J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research, the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life, and other cancer research projects. Most recently, the Dio Cancer Fund has committed funds to support the research of Dr. David Wong and his team at the UCLA School of Dentistry in developing a simple, non-invasive saliva test for the early detection of cancer, which is in keeping with the Fund’s mission of cancer prevention, research and education.

UFO Announces Final North American “Last Orders” Tour

Last year Phil Mogg confirmed that this year’s 50th anniversary tour with UFO will be his last as the frontman of the long-running hard rock band. Consequently, it seems almost certain that at that point they will cease to exist. UFO were formed in London in 1969 and Mogg is their only ever-present member, performing on all of the group’s 22 studio albums.
While European dates have already been announced the band is now unveiling their initial North American dates for this final run. Confirmed dates are listed below and include two shows in UFO’s adopted hometown of Chicago, two special co-headline shows with fellow classic rock icons Blue Oyster Cult and two shows with Armored Saint supporting. A current list of confirmed dates can be found below. More shows will be added soon.
“This decision has been a long time coming, I’ve considered stepping down at the end of UFO’s previous tours in 2016,” Mogg explains. “I don’t want to call this a farewell tour as I hate that word, but this year’s gigs (2019) will represent my final tap-dancing appearances with the band.
“2019 marks UFO’s 50th anniversary, so the timing feels right,” he continues. “There will be a final tour of the UK and we will also play some shows in selected other cities that the band has a strong connection with. But outside of the UK this won’t be a long tour. Being out on the road isn’t always tremendously luxurious and although the playing is as great as it ever was, the stuff that surrounds it becomes very tiresome. I always told myself that when I reached that stage I would step down, and that’s what I’m going to do. This is the right time for me to quit.”
Mogg will turn 71 in April 2019 and although his voice remains strong, he admits that age played its part in his conclusion.
While many veteran bands in such a position simply cease playing live and continue to record, UFO will no longer be releasing new music. The covers collection ‘The Salentino Cuts’ (2017) is set to become a signing-off point, though Mogg insists that however unlikely the prospect might seem – the singer is a lone strand of consistency throughout a 50-year history.
You’ll have gathered that Mogg is not about to slash his wrists anytime soon. Of course he is sad that the finishing line is now within slight but has had sufficient time to live with and process such a massive personal decision.
“Maybe the best word to use is ‘bittersweet’,” he concludes. “But my time has arrived to be leaving UFO. And all that remains is to make sure that we have a great tour.”

CANNABIS CORPSE’s  last full-length album, ‘The Left Hand Pass,’ was released in 2017 via Season of Mist. The band is led by the imitable Phil “LandPhil” Hall (MUNICIPAL WASTE) and his twin brother Josh “Hallhammer” Hall, who are also joined by guitarists Ray Suhy (SIX FEET UNDER) and Brandon Ellis (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, ARSIS).

Under the influence of the genre legends who preceded them, the trio give rise to unrelenting piece of crushing, weed-themed death replete with their signature, THC-fueled, horror fiction lyrics. As tracks such as “The 420th Crusade,” “Chronic Breed,” and the title track illustrate, ‘Left Hand Pass’ is another massive step-forward for the band and a  monumental piece of U.S. Death Metal.

Left Hand Pass’ is streaming now on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, and more! 

‘Left Hand Pass’ is available now at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

The track list and artwork for ‘Left Hand Pass’ can be found below:

Formed by bassist Phil “LandPhil” Hall (of MUNICIPAL WASTE/IRON REAGAN fame) and his brother Josh “Hallhammer” Hall in 2006, CANNABIS CORPSE has made a name for themselves with five well-received full-length albums and relentless touring. CANNABIS CORPSE have toured the world over with REVOCATION, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, HATE ETERNAL, SKELETONWITCH, GHOUL, and more.

Indestructible Noise Command (I.N.C.) Announce 5th Album

Indestructible Noise Command (I.N.C.) Announce 5th Album; New Single “Declaration” Streaming On Metal Insider
Connecticut quintet Indestructible Noise Command (I.N.C.) have played uncompromising thrash since 1985 when Erik Barath and Dennis Gergely formed the band in high school. After a pair of albums on a major label, the band took some time off before making a full-on return in 2010. On March 8th, their fifth full-length album, “Terrible Things,” will be released. It finds the band returning to their roots: stripped down thrash with a technical edge. Today, the band have premiered the first single from the album, “Declaration”, which is streaming here.
“We were angry and wild,” guitarist Erik Barath says of I.N.C.s 1985 genesis, a reaction to the homogenous pop of MTV. “[That music] didn’t represent what we were feeling. Aggressive Thrash Metal was our outlet and our truth.” Indestructible Noise Command crew recorded a demo tape in 1986 and immediately started booking bigger shows, appearing on stage with the likes of Exodus, Megadeth, Pantera, Testament and King Diamond. Less than a year later and only six months after their high school graduation, I.N.C. were signed to Giant Records to begin work on their first full length album, Razorback, which was released in 1987.
I.N.C.’s 1988 follow-up, The Visitor, cemented them a place in thrash metal history, hitting #1 on the U.S. college metal charts and stealing the U.K. #2 import slot out from underneath Aerosmith. After funding from Giant Records began to lose steam, I.N.C. decided to step back and assess the weary record contract landscape for what it was. The band was determined to build a life outside of the metal arena until they were able to finance their own comeback and then launch into a full-fledged resurrection.
Emerging as the band’s first offering in 20 years, 2010’s Bleed the Line EP was quickly embraced by metal fans, garnering airplay at metal radio and winning over new fans to go along with the rabid following they already had. The band’s third full-length, 2011’s Heaven Sent…Hellbound was released by Rising Records in Europe and Candlelight Records in North America. It was produced by Fredrik Nordström (At the Gates, In Flames, Opeth), with artwork from Sam Shearon (Iron Maiden, Rob Zombie, Fear Factory). In 2012 drummer Kyle Shepard and bassist David Campo (Payback, When Freedom Dies) joined the band to complete the permanent lineup. That year I.N.C. played shows with Godsmack, Trivium, Stained and Onslaught. 2014’s Black Horse Serenade continued the band’s streak, signing with TKO Booking and touring America.
In January of 2018, Indestructible Noise Command began writing their 5th album, Terrible Things, entering the studio in September. The band chose to again work with Nicky Bellmore at Dexter Labs studios, who recorded Black Hearse Serenade. The album was completed in December and will be self-released. INC says the new album will be a return to the band’s thrash roots, stripped down, fast but still with some technical edge. Terrible Things is slated for release on March 8th.
“Terrible Things” Track Listing:
1. Fist Go Rek
2. Identifier
3. Declaration
4. Terrible Things
5. Pledge of Legions
6. Unscathed
7. Bone Saw Ballet
8. Salmonella

STATIC-X Announces Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary Tour & Memorial Tribute to Wayne Static

Featuring Co-Headliners DEVILDRIVER & Support from DOPE, Plus More Support TBA
 
Watch a New Tour Promo Video Here
 
STATIC-X to Feature Original Band Line Up: Tony Campos, Ken Jay and Koichi Fukuda
Brand New STATIC-X Album, Project Regeneration, Coming Soon
As teased late last year, STATIC-X will head out on their highly-anticipated Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary tour this summer, which will also serve as a memorial tribute to late vocalist Wayne Static. The tour will feature co-headliners and metal giants DevilDriver, and will also feature support from heavy mainstays Dope. The tour will begin in Tempe, AZ on June 18 and will visit over a month’s-worth of cities, coming to an end in Las Vegas, NV on July 27.
Tickets will go on sale via individual venues this Friday (pre-sale begins tomorrow). Meet & greets are available now via www.Static-X.org and www.DevilDriver.com. See below for all dates.
“Our intention is to pay ultimate respect to Wayne and to celebrate the music that has been in all of our hearts for more than 20 years,” says bassist Tony Campos. “It’s all about channeling the vibe from 1999 to the best of our ability and playing those classic STATIC-X songs live and loud.”
“Rehearsals have been awesome,” adds guitarist Koichi Fukuda. “The music and the vocals are sounding really great! I feel like Wayne would be proud.”
In celebration of this announcement, STATIC-X have revealed an exclusive promotional video for the tour, including a brand new clip of the band performing a newly-recorded version of their hit song “Push It”, featuring an unidentified vocalist. Watch here: https://youtu.be/7Kya89wzOlc
“We understand that people are naturally going to want to know more about who is singing,” says drummer Ken Jay. “We have discussed this at great length and we came to the conclusion that at this time, it would be inappropriate for us to put the focus on anyone other than Wayne, Tony, Koichi and myself. It feels like the best way for us to celebrate Wayne’s legacy, along with the 20th anniversary of Wisconsin Death Trip, with all of our fans.”
 
DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara says, “For those who don’t know, I am the one who first discovered STATIC-X back in the day in a small club in front of about 40 people! From that moment forward, I was and have always been a fan of what they do. It’s unique and will always hold a special place musically for me.
 
Co-headlining this first memorial tour is not only a way to pay homage to Wayne, but something I’m very excited to do. STATIC-X will be closing the show each night out of respect for Wayne. I’ll be there nightly, side stage, watching the unit do their thing with a big smile. I hope that Wayne will be there in spirit, watching as his brothers pay respect by bringing this music back to the fans that made the band so massive! I know he would have loved this!
 
Don’t miss out and grab tickets before these dates sell out! DevilDriver will have a full headlining set and we are throwing in some “surprises”, so get ready to get LOCO! If there was ever a time for me to break out Coal Chamber tracks, this would be the tour to do it on… we will also add new stuff from DevilDriver before our double record comes out in late summer! Come join us for the summer tour of a lifetime!”
On this tour, support artist Dope will also celebrate the 20th anniversary of their acclaimed debut album, Felons and Revolutionaries. “We are super excited to be part of this tour,” says Edsel Dope. Dope and STATIC-X played hundreds of shows together back in 1999 and 2000, so it’s an honor to be able to run it back 20 years later.”

About RAVEN BLACK:
RAVEN BLACK are a theatrical metal act from Michigan. Their unique brand of metal – influenced by gothic, classical, and circus music – is the soundtrack to vocalist Raven‘s curse, as she, The Doctor (guitar), Stitches (bass), and The Demon (drums) are traveling the world to tell their story.

The Doctor, a Voodoo Priest, came across a lost and scared little girl. He cursed her with a magic spell to turn her into a doll. The curse was disrupted by her terrifying and taunting screams, and the girl remained half human. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up Muppet, The Demon. She made him her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to help search for lost souls looking to join their dark world. Welcome to the dark metal carnival!

MISERY INDEX debut first track, premiere video from the forthcoming new album ‘Rituals Of Power’

American death metal legion MISERY INDEX will unleash their incendiary new full-length ‘Rituals Of Power’ on March 8 worldwide via Season Of Mist. Preorders for the new album are available across formats here.

The album sees the powerhouse quartet unleash a barrage of ferocious metal as violent as it is savvy. Their vicious vocals spit venom, laying bare the ills of a dystopian society gone mad. ‘Rituals Of Power’ is world-class modern extremity and MISERY INDEX only grows more powerful with time.

“Rituals Of Power is a disavowal and warning against the consequences of our so-called ‘post-truth’ age,” issues the band. “Each of the nine songs revolves loosely around this theme, yet each track also stands very much on its own. As an album however, they are all brought to life as one ‘reanimated’ monster; it’s roughly thirty-five minutes of unhinged, yet cohesive, riff-driven aural ballistics. We were pissed off and on fire during both the writing and recording, and we think it shows in spades. We set out to write the best album we could, based on what we would want to hear first as fans of this music, and we could not be happier.”

The band (Jason Netherton – bass, vocals, Mark Kloeppel – guitar, vocals, Adam Jarvis – drums, Darin Morris – lead guitar) have revealed the first new track off ‘Rituals Of Power’. The video for the explosive new track, titled “New Salem”, and is streaming now here.

Of the band’s first single and video from the record in “New Salem,” the band notes, “‘New Salem’ sums up perfectly the lyrical vitriol and musical dynamics featured across ‘Rituals Of Power’. We wanted to introduce the album, not just with a straight-ahead ripping tune, but with a smack to the face; it’s a wakeup call for any concerned citizen and a code red for civilization. Ugly times call for stark and uncomfortable statements, and ‘New Salem’ castigates the faults and ineptitudes of our broken media system and the Crucible-esque, witch-hunt culture it fuels.”

The artwork for ‘Rituals Of Power’, illustrated by Raphael Gabrio, and track list can be found below:

Track list:
1. Universal Untruths
2. Decline and Fall
3. The Choir Invisible
4. New Salem
5. Hammering the Nails
6. Rituals of Power
7. They Always Come Back
8. I Disavow
9. Naysayer
