VIRGIN STEELE Announce New Studio Album 'Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation'

Artist: 
 
VIRGIN STEELE  change the title for their forthcoming new studio album in 'Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation'.
 
David DeFeis says about the new album: "Our new album which is called "NOCTURNES OF HELLFIRE & DAMNATION",  is not a concept album per se, but there is a through line that connects the tracks. The lyrics essentially deal with relationship issues and by that I mean....the connections between entities....as in all sorts of beings, not only human beings…but also Gods & Goddessses, Spirits, Elements, or whatever, plus various creatures, animal, vegetable and or mineral, but largely the album is about connections between people. People and their belief systems, people and their Gods or Goddesses…people and their life philosophies and also the variouus substances we invest or inject into our daily or nightly rituals and our worldview, and all the complexities of what drives us, makes us who we are and takes us where we may…or may not be going. To sum it up thiis album  is about....all the various ways in which humans can entangle themselves, or destroy themselves…so the album&'s title essentially encompasses what the vibe of the whole Work is about. The title relates to the album in the way that the title 'NOBLE SAVAGE', or 'AGE OF CONSENT', expressed each of those particular Works. The title provides a framework and connective tissue, but each song is really its own thing.
 
Musically the album is pretty heavy, high energy, often dark, at turns melancholy, and at turns aggressive or angry sounding. It does have that over the top bombastic heaviness that we are about, and the whole Barbaric-Romantic thing that we are known for. The overarching theme that comes to mind when I think about the album or listen to it is passion…raw passion. There are big monolithic riffss, moody chord changes, 'classical' type bits, sort of Bluesy moments....it retains the VIRGIN STEELE signature, but it adds new dimensions to it. In a strange way it "feels" to me like it could have been the album we might have made to follow up "NOBLE SAVAGE", had I been able to devote all my energies into the more bombastic or progressive side of my musical nature at that time, rather than trying to appease some of the other "factions" around me who wanted some kind of  a "hit"...whatever that meant at the time. So to conclude...we have infused the recordings with all that we have gone through over these past months, every fiber of our being.....and I think this album will be something our Fans will really enjoy!"

SPV / Steamhammer will release the new studio album on June 17th in Scandinavia, June 19th in Germany, June 22nd in Europe and June 23rd in the USA.

It will come out with three different covers as a standard 1CD version (the gargoyle cover), 2CD digipak version (the angel cover),  2 LP gatefold version (the flute playing skeleton cover) and download.

UFO New Album 'A Conspiracy Of Stars' Out February 23

Artist: 
 
UFO - New Album A CONSPIRACY OF STARS out on 23 February 2015

European tour to start February 2015


 

The rumours have been doing the rounds for months, now it-s official at last: 23 February 2015 will see the European release (Germany: 20 February 2015 / US: 3 March 2015) of the latest studio recording by British rock legend UFO, their 22nd to date. The album will be called A Conspiracy Of Stars, and the band consisting of Phil Mogg (vocals), Paul Raymond (keyboards, guitar), Vinnie Moore (guitar), Andy Parker (drums) and Rob De Luca (bass) have recorded almost a dozen fantastic new songs, produced and mixed in the Kentish town of Deal by Chris Tsangarides, renowned for his work with acts such as Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore. A Conspiracy Of Stars will be available as a Digipak (including poster and bonus track), jewel case, vinyl double LP and for download.

More or less simultaneously with the release, UFO are scheduled to go on tour in February and March 2015, playing Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Switzerland, and more, followed by a tour of Britain and Ireland in April and May.

The band is already looking forward to the reactions to their latest release: -A Conspiracy Of Stars is another successful combination of those typical UFO elements with fresh, contemporary ideas. We-re confident that not only our longstanding supporters will get their money-s worth, but that younger rock fans will also enjoy the album. We look forward to seeing you on tour!-

"Stagefright" by MOTORHEAD  and "Showtime" by UFO  will be released through SPV/Steamhammer for the first time on Blu-ray. Both are a "must have" for the fans!

Stage Fright was recorded during a show at the Phillipshalle in Dusseldorf, Germany on December 7, 2004. The set features 20 songs from the entire Motorhead history, including 'Overkill', 'Ace Of Spades' and 'Iron Fist'. This memorable occasion was shot with 23 high definition cameras under the direction of Sven Offen (Papa Roach, Heather Nova, Gronemeyer, Toten Hosen, among others). The late Gert Hof, famous not only for his work with Rammstein, was enlisted to take care of the show's light design. The fans can also expect a lot of bonus material like making of, a fan special, testimonials, slide show, backstage rider and much more.

During the world tour for the album "You Are Here" UFO filmed a concert in May 2005 at the Pumpwerk Wilhelmshaven in Germany. Now "Showtime" will be released for the first time as Blu-ray incl. a fantastic acoustic session which was recorded at the Peppermint Park Studios in Hannover, Germany. More bonus material, like making of and history interviews, is also included and you can see the last performances with the band of Drummer Jason Bonham, the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, and Pete Way who had to leave the band due to health reasons soon after.

Both Blu-rays will be released in Germany on November 28th 2014, in Europe on December 1st 2014 and in the USA on January 20th 2015.

There will be more Blu-ray releases in 2015 for example  AXEL RUDI PELL and much more. Stay tuned for more infos!

SPV Announce New Virgin Steele Album for February/March 2015

Artist: 
  

SPV / Steamhammer is proud to announce a new Virgin Steele studio album for February / March 2015 . This will be the first full length album with brandnew songs since "The Black Light Bacchanalia" which was released in 2010.
 
David DeFeis describes the new album: "....it is a very heavy non-concept type album in the vein of something like a Noble Savage or an Age Of Consent, where there is no particular "story" that one has to follow...it is instead a straightforward collection of songs that work well together. It is about 80-90% tracked already, and final mixing will begin next month!" He further stated that: "I know that we announced a box-set was to be issued this autumn, which in addition to two more re-issues, would also have included a new bonus album called "Ghost Harvest", (which by the way is finished and ready to go)....but... the group and I and our label all feel that the time is right now first for some brandnew US metal in the style that VIRGIN STEELE deliver, therefore the new album is now our focus but...fear not...the previously discussed box set will be released later next year, most likely a short time after we issue the brand new release that we are currently completing. And for those who were asking...yes... the new album does have a title and I will reveal it in the weeks ahead....With these new recordings we have gone back to some earlier methods of recording such as using analog tape, and the whole thing sounds and feels very organic. To conclude...the Group and I are really happy with the new material and we are sure that all the Fans who waited so long will be more than pleased.!"

Watch out for more info revealed soon.

SPV / Steamhammer re-released Virgin Steele´s "The Marriage Of Heaven & Hell I+II" and "Invictus" earlier this year . These 2 CD digipak re-release both came with special bonus material and a huge booklet with new liner notes and unseen photos by David DeFeis.

RAVEN Launch Kickstarter; Set to Release "Party Killers" Cover Album

Artist: 
RAVEN Launch Kickstarter; Set to Release "Party Killers" Cover Album

NWOBHM thrash godfathers RAVEN have launched a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to fund the recording of their next studio album "ExtermiNation".  The band has recorded a full-length cover album entitled "Party Killers" that is being offered as an exclusive Kickstarter reward for backers.  "Party Killers" is available on CD and 12" vinyl.  The band is also offering exclusive t-shirts, patches, and a 7" vinyl single via the campaign, which runs through November 28th.

The trio has been in heavy pre-production for the upcoming original studio album "ExtermiNation" due in early 2015.  Somehow amid the writing and rehearsal process, the band also found time and energy to record the cover album.  Further details will be released in the coming days, but it has been revealed that the track-listing will include covers of "Ogre Battle"(Queen) and "In For the Kill"(Budgie). 

Vocalist and bassist John Gallagher comments on the album: "We were writing for the new album at a cool studio in Richmond, VA, and in the middle of jamming asked the engineer there if we could record a few cover tunes just for the hell of it.  The sounds were so good we decided to do something we'd been threatening for many years: "Party Killers" - a collection of cover tunes guaranteed to deafen yer neighbors!! It's basically a peek into the little red 45rpm singles box we used to have at home...songs and bands that were very influential to us as kids, but given the Raven overhaul! I think it gives a nice insight to our roots and will be an excellent companion to the new album!"
 
RAVEN is currently on tour in the United States with support act NIGHT DEMON.

About RAVEN:

According to the pages of the various metal media, the labels “LEGENDARY,” “INNOVATIVE,” “TRUE ORIGINALS,” as well as “LUNATICS!” have been rightfully pinned upon RAVEN over the years. In a music scene filled by clones nurtured with a cookie-cutter mentality, the unique personality, power and humor of the three band members has always shone through. The crazed vocals & bass playing of John Gallagher, the full frontal guitar assault of brother, Mark Gallagher, and the punishing polyrhythmic pounding of drummer, Joe Hasselvander, all combine to form a sonic battering ram unique in rock!
From the well documented early days as NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) frontrunners, RAVEN’s albums ROCK UNTIL YOU DROP, WIPED OUT and ALL FOR ONE virtually invented both the speed metal and power metal genres – during the trailblazing USA tours of the 80’s introducing the States to “Athletic rock” as well as giving opening acts like Metallica and Anthrax their first tours, through the doldrums of the late 80’s/early 90’s when a grunge obsessed media wrote off so many acts – RAVEN has consistently proved to be both survivors par excellence and in a genre of grim imitation – shown that they are “the real thing”. Where so many of their contemporaries have either faded creatively or become parodies of themselves, RAVEN have consistently pushed the envelope while retaining their unique sound and attack – both in the studio & in their true element, onstage!

MOB RULES Reveal 20th Anniversary Box Set Details

Artist: 

MOB RULES to reveal initial details about their boxed 20th anniversary set Timekeeper

- Lots of guests, new songs, cover versions -

 
While Northern German melodic metal band Mob Rules are currently busy applying the finishing touches to their boxed anniversary set Timekeeper (release date: 13 October 2014, Germany: 10 October 2014, US/Canada: 28 October 2014), the musicians have revealed initial details about this special package which consists of two CDs, a single and a live DVD. CD 1 has Mob present the 15 most important songs from their previous eight releases, among them classics such as 'Black Rain', 'Hollowed Be Thy Name', 'Astral Hand', 'Rain Song' (Live) and 'Cannibal Nation'. 

CD 2 is the fulfilment of the band members' longstanding dream: 'We've always wanted to invite guests to the studio who have been important to us and our development and who have become friends,' explains drummer Nikolas Fritz, referring to a long list of renowned musicians who have contributed to Timekeeper, among them Udo Dirkschneider (U.D.O.), Bernhard Wei' & Marco Wriedt (both Axxis), Amanda Somerville & Sascha Paeth (both Avantasia), Peavy Wagner (Rage), Michael Ehr' (Gamma Ray), Herman Frank (Accept), Corvin Bahn (Uli Jon Roth, Saxon), Herbie Langhans (Sinbreed, Seventh Avenue), Stefan Lill (Vanden Plas) Chitral Somapala (ex-Firewind, Red Circuit) and Peter Knorn (Victory). These artists can be heard on newly recorded Mob Rules classics, the cover versions 'Lights Out' (UFO) and 'Run With The Wolf' (Rainbow) as well as two brand-new songs which Mob Rules composed exclusively for Timekeeper. 'This boxed set reflects the band's past, present and future,' comments Nikolas Fritz.

Timekeeper is rounded off by a DVD featuring recordings from the 2011 Mob Rules performance at the Prog Power US festival in Atlanta/USA plus extensive bonus material. Nikolas Fritz: 'Our fans kept asking about those film recordings, that's why we have now had the material cut and its sound mixed. A great souvenir, also for ourselves.'

Real eye-catchers are the cover artwork and 44-page booklet which are part of the elaborate box, featuring scores of photos from all phases of Mob Rules' 20-year career, a special feature being the fact that each one of the limited boxes has been numbered individually by hand, making this boxed set a very special fan item.

MOB RULE New Contract With Steamhammer/SPV

Artist: 
MOB RULE New Contract With Steamhammer/SPV
 
Boxed anniversary set Timekeeper scheduled for October release 
 
Northern German melodic metal band Mob Rules are back with Steamhammer/SPV. A few days ago the group, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, signed a new deal and are returning to the record company which already released and distributed five of their previous studio albums. 'For us it's a great pleasure to have signed with Steamhammer,' comments the band. 'We're looking forward to the collaboration with Olly Hahn and his team, who supported us in both word and deed in the years between 1999 and 2008 and whose expertise we greatly value.' Steamhammer's product manager Hahn is happy to return this compliment: 'Mob Rules have been among the most significant and impressive German melodic metal acts. We're proud to have them back on our roster.'
 
Mob Rules are set to launch the first result of this renewed worldwide cooperation, their 20th anniversary boxed set Timekeeper, on 13 October 2014 (Germany: 10 October 2014, US/Canada: 28 October 2014). Hahn: 'It's not every day that such a top-quality product arrives at the stores. The package consists of a best-of CD, a bonus DVD, a bonus CD featuring new and rerecorded songs, brilliant cover numbers and other surprises, including renowned guest musicians.' Steamhammer and Mob Rules will publish more details in the coming weeks, suffice it to say that their fans will be delighted.

The arrival of the boxed anniversary set will be supported by a number of anniversary shows with highlights such as the Break The Barriers festival in Wilhelmshaven (feat. Gamma Ray & Love.Might.Kill) and the Metal Hammer Paradise on the Baltic coast, among others.

REBELLIOUS SPIRIT - NEW ALBUM "OBSESSION" IS COMING IN SEPTEMBER

For Hardrock newcomers Rebellious Spirit from Southern Germany, this year will be as hot as (hopefully) the summer. The four musicians have ensconced themselves in the Cubeaudio studios in Gottingen, where they are busy working on their second album Obsession, scheduled for release on 19 September 2014 in Germany, 22 September 2014 in Europe and 30 September in the USA, under the direction of producer Markus Gumball.

First impressions confirm that the young band has definitely evolved, sounding more mature and experienced on Obsession. 'The events of recent years, the production of our debut album Gamble Shot, the shows, the first tour with Axel Rudi Pell, all those things have helped us a great deal,' explains guitar player and vocalist Jannik Fischer, who founded the group together with his brother Jens (bass), who is three years his senior. The original line-up remains unchanged and continues to include Silvio Bizer (drums) and Corvin Domhardt (guitars).

Obsession will see Rebellious Spirit take the logical second step, going even further in terms of toughness and dynamism. 'You've got to bear in mind that Jannik was just 15 and I was 18 when we recorded the first demos for Gamble Shot,' Jens Fischer recalls. 'Now, three years later, we're all even better and more accomplished on our instruments, and Jannik's voice in particular has audibly matured, which of course benefits the new material enormously.'

Rebellious Spirit will also benefit from the confirmation of their support slot for the upcoming Axel Rudi Pell tour (marked in red), scheduled to start on 19 September 2014, the german release date of Obsession. Jannik Fischer: 'For us it was a dream come true to be booked for the first part of the Pell tour. That we will get this opportunity again is a real gift. We look forward to the concerts and to seeing our fans again.'
