LAMB OF GOD to Support SLAYER on 2017 Summer Tour, Also Featuring BEHEMOTH


LAMB OF GOD to Support SLAYER on 2017 Summer Tour, Also Featuring BEHEMOTH
 
Beginning July 12, 2017 in Bemidji, MN
 
log.jpg
nternationally-renowned heavy rock leaders LAMB OF GOD will support headlining metal legends Slayer, along with fellow supporting death metal group Behemoth, on what is set to be this summer’s most-anticipated heavy music tour. The six-week expedition will rage across North America beginning July 12 in Bemidji, MN, winding up in Phoenix, AZ on August 20.
Slayer and LAMB OF GOD will also play Wisconsin’s Rock Fest 2017 (7/13) and Rock USA 2017 (7/15), and then meet up with Behemoth at the Chicago Open Air Festival on July 16.  Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 3; log on to http://www.slayer.net/tour or http://www.lamb-of-god.com for all purchasing details.
Kerry King of Slayer says, As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it! Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends – bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!”
Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD says, “It’s been a while since we’ve toured with the almighty Slayer and even longer since we’ve hit the road with our friends in Behemoth – I can’t wait! This tour is gonna be the feel-good event of the summer- the gigs are gonna be like the Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love in ’67! Okay, so that’s complete bullsh*t, it’s gonna be absolutely nothing like that, so don’t show up with flowers in your hair looking for free hugs or anything stupid like that. It will definitely be a good f**king time though (as long as your definition of a good time means brutal, caustic, and hideously loud music) – see ya there!”
Adam “Nergal” Darskiof Behemoth adds, It is with the utmost pride we are announcing the Slayer, LAMB OF GOD and Behemoth summer tour! We are beyond excited to be joining this bill with these living legends and… our friends one more time! We are also stoked about coming back to North American shores for the last time before kicking off the next album cycle. Come and join this EXTREME metal feast with us!”

WINDSWEPT stream third track of debut album


 

WINDSWEPT is the latest musical brainchild of Roman Sayenko. The DRUDKH mastermind is known to separate ideas that stylistically diverge from his main creative outlet into different projects such as OLD SILVER KEY, PRECAMBRIAN and RATTENFÄNGER among others.

WINDSWEPT remains relatively close to DRUDKH in comparison to other outlets of Sayenko’s inspiration as it stays within the classic expression of Ukrainian black metal. Yet ‘The Great Cold Steppe’ is deliberately kept harsh and raw, which reflects the album’s theme that was inspired by the hostile and fierce Eastern steppes during winter time.

‘The Great Cold Steppe’ was written and recorded in only three days without rehearsals and based on improvisation with instruments and vocals creating the feeling and grit of a live performance.

Better turn on the heating before listening as WINDSWEPT come in hard and merciless like a blizzard from ‘The Great Cold Steppe’.

Please note that WINDSWEPT do not give interviews, will not perform live, and do not provide pictures.

Line-up
V. – drums
K. – bass
R. – guitars, vocals

Style: Black Metal

Track-list
1. Black Horizon Is the Gates of a Blizzard
2. Shrouded in Pale Shining, So Sleeps Infinite Ancient Steppe
3. The Stars Are Cold and Indifferent, Sow Their Gleaming Ashes
4. The Great Shepherd Rides His Storms
5. Blinding and Bottomless Abyss Is Howling
6. A Spiteful Wind Buries All the Lonely Whispers

Sólstafir premiere first new song of forthcoming album


SÓLSTAFIR are now revealing the first magical song of their forthcoming sixth full-length. The new masterpiece of the enigmatic Icelandic rockers is entitled ‘Berdreyminn’, which means a “dreamer of forthcoming events” and will be out in stores on May 26th.

SÓLSTAFIR comment: “Our first premiere song ‘Ísafold’ came very spontaneously to light. It felt like the spirit of THIN LIZZY paid us a visit that day. Adding a classic Phil Rudd beat to that seemed the only right thing to do. This is not the most typical SÓLSTAFIR track but in some odd way it could be taken to represent this album. For such a short song, it offers many different sonic landscapes. And although we are not re-inventing the wheel and you will find many references to ‘classics’ as tributes, I find it quite different from anything that we have done before. That is the way, I like it and to me ‘Ísafold’ is already an all-time favourite among all our tracks.”

SÓLSTAFIR have previously released the cover art by Adam Burke and track-list of ‘Berdreyminn’, which can both be viewed below.

SHORES OF NULL ANNOUNCE ‘BLACK DRAPES FOR TOMORROW’


NEW ALBUM SET FOR RELEASE ON 14 APRIL VIA CANDLELIGHT / SPINEFARM RECORDS

AA6426D6-18C4-47BA-A3AB-885038BFBAF8.jpg

Rome-based metal band Shores Of Null have announced their second album, ‘Black Drapes For Tomorrow’, which will be released via Candlelight / Spinefarm Records on April 14th, 2017.

Following their highly acclaimed debut “Quiescence”, the gloom maestros are back with an album full of wistful-yet-powerful riffs, blackened aggression and epic melancholy-ridden vocals.

Produced by Marco Mastrobuono at Kick Recording Studio (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance), ‘Black Drapes For Tomorrow’ is a profoundly dark outing both musically and lyrically, forging a seamless and overflowing blend of genres into a boiling pot of multi-layered sounds.

Tracklisting:

  1. Tributary Waters
  2. Donau
  3. Tide Against Us
  4. House Of Cries
  5. Black Drapes For Tomorrow
  6. The Enemy Within
  7. Carry On, My Tiny Hope
  8. We Ain’t Ashes
  9. A Thousand Storms
  10.  The Kolyma Route
  11.  Death Of A River

An intense live schedule in support of this release sees them embarking upon a European tour with Harakiri For The Sky and Sylvaine; they are also set to make several Italian appearances opening for Candlemass, with more shows still to be announced.

The album title leaves no room for misinterpretation; Shores Of Null are back with a burden of gloom and darkness.
