Formed in the winter of 2008, MONSTERS SCARE YOU has created an enthusiastic fan base with the combination of pop, metal and electronica. Their sound has been compared to ATTACK ATTACK!, ASKING ALEXANDRIA and ENTER SHIKARI.

In 2010, MONSTERS SCARE YOU went into the studio with engineer/producer Joel "Casey Jones" to record the "Teratophobia" EP. In support of the release, the band embarked on a West Coast tour consisting of 23 shows in 25 days. With increasing crowds and buzz, MONSTERS SCARE YOU was named the #2 unsigned band in Alternative Press magazine.

Premiere\\ NINE INCH NAILS: 'Came Back Haunted' Video Released


"Came Back Haunted", the new video from NINE INCH NAILS, can be seen below. The clip was directed by filmmaker David Lynch. The song comes off "Hesitation Marks", the first NIN album since 2008's "The Slip", which will arrive on September 3. The CD features guest appearances from FLEETWOOD MAC guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and THE WHO touring bassist Pino Palladino.

NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor described "Hesitation Marks" as "much more electronic," although he added that the first single, "Came Back Haunted", is "familiar, it's very self-referential and purposely. I think that's the most like that there is on that record."

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Reznor took to the airwaves of Los Angeles radio station KROQ on Monday (June 24) to discuss "Hesitation Marks", the group's return and the recent departures of guitarist Adrian Belew and bassist Eric Avery from the lineup after just a few months. Reznor said about the latter, "It's been disruptive . . . you can spend a lot of time, like I've done, hypothesizing and imagining and projecting as to what it's going to be like with this chemistry and this recipe of people in a room playing music. And in reality, it rarely is that."

He added, "In the case of a couple people in the band, some switches were made and it's turned into something different . . . It's felt a wrench in the works at time, but at the same time it's made me rethink a lot of how we put this together and I think where we're ending up at a place that's much truer to where NINE INCH NAILS should be and better in the long run."

Asked why he kept the recording of "Hesitation Marks" a secret for a year, Reznor responded, "I still owe Interscope a greatest-hits record. There was talk about doing a couple new tracks for the compilation under the NIN header . . . I started tinkering with a couple songs for NINE INCH NAILS. I felt inspired by what's happening. A couple songs led to a couple more songs and pretty soon it was a full-fledged, 'let's make an album.'"

NINE INCH NAILS has confirmed a lengthy North American tour for the fall, beginning on September 28 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The band will make its live return on July 26 at the Fuji Rock festival in Japan.

Entrevista\\ Kerry King: "Não acho que Jeff e eu éramos melhores amigos."

Na edição de agosto de 2013 da revista Guitar World, o guitarrista do SLAYER, Kerry King, fala sobre sua relação pessoal com o companheiro de guitarras Jeff Hanneman, que faleceu em 2 de maio devido a uma cirrose alcoólica, resultado de uma vida de excessos.
“Toda vez que finalizávamos uma turnê, Jeff ia para casa e se desligava.” Afirmou King. “Ele podia viver somente a 45 minutos de distância, mas a não ser que você fosse parte de seu círculo íntimo, era difícil manter contato com ele. E levou-me alguns anos para entender isso. Por um tempo eu ficava pensando: ‘Por que esse cara não está me ligando de volta?’ Mas conforme íamos envelhecendo, eu entendi como Jeff era.”

“Não acho que Jeff e eu éramos melhores amigos.” Continua King. “Eu acho que nós provavelmente éramos os mais próximos na banda, mas nunca melhores amigos. Para colocar de uma forma que todos entendam, Jeff e eu éramos como sócios em um negócio. Ele era meu amigo? Claro que era, mas ele não agia desta forma. A última vez que estive na casa de Jeff foi em janeiro de 2003. Nós fomos assistir os Raiders [time de futebol americano] nos playoffs, e isso soa horrível, mas não era. As coisas eram assim.”

Falando com o programa Australiano “Distortion”, em março, durante o Soundwave Festival deste ano, King disse sobre Hanneman: “Eu não falo sobre Jeff. E não há nada novo ou errado ou... Ele sempre foi um recluso e desde que não estivesse tocando conosco, ele era um grande recluso. Acho que a última vez que tentei falar com ele, ele enviou um email sobre algo relativo aos negócios, e eu respondi dizendo: ‘Ei, cara, o que está acontecendo? Não te vejo há um tempo. Como estão as coisas.’ E eu não tive resposta. Eu não sou um cara que vai atrás das amizades; eu não sou um cara que vai atrás das pessoas, dizendo: ‘Ei, cara, você não me respondeu’. [...]”

Traduza\\ Six-Year-Old Girl Sings 'Heavy Metal' On 'America's Got Talent'


A six-year-old girl shocked the judges on "America's Got Talent" last night (Tuesday, June 25) by screaming her way through an original "heavy metal" song.

Aaralyn O'Neil, backed up on drums by brother Isaiah O'Neil, sang a track called "Zombie Skin", featuring such lyrics as "Everybody! Listen to meeeee! I am a zombieeeee! I'm gonna eat you up right now!"

Judges Howard Stern and Scary Spice Mel B. buzzed Aaralyn and Isaiah almost immediately, with Stern telling the girl, "It's not because I didn't like ('Zombie Skin'). I was afraid your voice was gonna blow out. That song really packs a punch." Fellow judge Heidi Klum added, "I'm really confused. You're so cute and sweet, and when you open your mouth, I was like, 'Whoa!'

Monsters of Rock 2013 \\ Hellyeah e Dokken: confirmados no Monsters of Rock 2013?


Conforme informações divulgadas hoje no Facebook oficial da banda Hellyeah, eles estão confirmados no Monsters of Rock 2013 para tocar no dia 19/Out/2013. O cartaz postado traz ainda a banda Dokken (também não anunciada oficialmente pela produção do Monsters).

 Hellyeah é um supergrupo americano de heavy metal formado pelo vocalista Chad Gray e do guitarrista Greg Tribbett do Mudvayne, no guitarrista Tom Maxwell do Nothingface, no baixista Bob Zilla do Damageplan e no baterista ex-Pantera e Damageplan Vinnie Paul.

CIRCLE PIT \\ AUGUST BURNS RED: 'Count It All As Lost' Lyric Video Released


The official lyric video for "Count It All As Lost", a brand new song from the Manheim, Pennsylvania-based quintet AUGUST BURNS RED, can be seen below. The track comes off the band's fifth album, "Rescue & Restore", which will be released on June 25 via Solid State Records.

The new effort, described by guitarist and principal songwriter JB Brubaker as the band’s "most ambitious album yet," turns a critical eye to the oft-maligned genre of metalcore, leading by example to prove that bands can still find exciting new ways to expand the genre.

"'Rescue & Restore' is about challenging other bands and ourselves, as well as fans of this music, to want more than whatever happens to be the current buzz," explains Brubaker.

"We’ve done our best with each new album to try to push our sound in new directions and we’d like to see our peers do the same.

"People need to realize that there’s not much of a difference between a metalcore song that has a couple breakdowns with a repeating chorus and the latest LADY GAGA song. This genre used to be better than that. It can still be better than that."

Throughout the album, AUGUST BURNS RED continue to do their part to challenge the conventions of heavy music. Over the course of 11 tracks, the band artfully blend piano, cello, violin, trumpet, various percussive elements and more into their sonic arsenal, taking their music into new aesthetic territory and contorting the boundaries of the genre.

In support of "Rescue & Restore", AUGUST BURNS RED will perform all summer long as a mainstage act on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, marking their third appearance overall and first since 2011.

With "Rescue & Restore", AUGUST BURNS RED have proven that it is possible to reshape music in a way that challenges listeners, reinvigorates fans and puts art first. But for any fans who fear AUGUST BURNS RED turning their back on the sound that catapulted them to the forefront of a genre, Brubaker advises them not to worry.

"At the end of the day, we are still a very heavy band," he explains. "'Rescue & Restore' still has plenty of really heavy stuff, techy odd meter riffs, and all the stuff that people have come to expect from us; it just has a lot more surprises along the way."

"Rescue & Restore" track listing:

01. Provisions
02. Treatment
03. Spirit Breaker
04. Count It All As Lost
05. Sincerity
06. Creative Captivity
07. Fault Line
08. Beauty In Tragedy

Traduza\\ PHILIP ANSELMO Joins ACCEPT On Stage At France's HELLFEST


Philip Anselmo (DOWN, PANTERA) joined reformed heavy metal legends ACCEPT on stage this past Saturday, June 22 at Hellfest in Clisson, France to perform the band's classic song "Fast As A Shark". Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.

ACCEPT's April 12 concert at Teatro Caupolicán in Santiago, Chile was professionally filmed for the band's forthcoming DVD.

During a recent interview with Radio Futuro, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann revealed that ACCEPT is planning to enter the studio soon to begin work on the follow-up to 2012's "Stalingrad". "We're currently gathering material," he said. "We're writing stuff actively, so give us a few more months, and hopefully, by the end of the year, we 'll have enough material to actually start working on a new studio album. But it won't be long. I can't guarantee when exactly it's gonna be happening, but we wanna definitely go back to the studio as soon as we can."

"Stalingrad" sold around 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 81 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "Blood Of The Nations", opened with around 2,900 units back in September 2010 to land at No. 187.

"Stalingrad" was released on April 6, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was once again helmed by British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY), who worked on the band's critically acclaimed comeback effort, "Blood Of The Nations".

CIRCLE PIT \\ THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER: 'Goat Of Departure' Video Released


"Goat Of Departure", the new video from Michigan's unstoppable sons of molten melodic death metal THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, can be seen below. The clip, directed by Ben Mayer, was filmed last month in the band's hometown of Detroit. In typical THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER fashion, the video is over-the-top and even features the return of a classic THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER character, and a real, live goat.

Says THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER frontman Trevor Strnad: "It's our pleasure to release our latest exercise in music video stupidity to you all at long last… We'd like to thank Guiness the Goat for penciling us in and all of the rabid THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER fans for getting wild with us. Press the play button and embrace the glory of the goat!"

"Goat Of Departure" comes off THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's sixth full-length album, "Everblack", which sold 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 32 on The Billboard 200 chart.

"Everblack" was released on June 11 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was recorded at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (SEPULTURA, SUFFOCATION, UNEARTH) in New Windsor, New York. Frontman Trevor Strnad's horror-inspired lyrics persist on "Everblack", beginning with "In Hell Is Where She Waits For Me", a reference to the murder from which the band took for its moniker. The cover artwork was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller.

Premiere\\ KROKUS: 'Dög Song' Video Released


"Dög Song", the new video from Swiss hard rock veterans KROKUS, can be seen below. The clip focuses on the band's the new mascot, the English Bulldog Da Dög, who is pictured on cover of KROKUS' latest album, "Dirty Dynamite".

"Dirty Dynamite", the 17th studio album from KROKUS, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 17. This marks the first time in KROKUS' history that the band has landed in the Top 20 of the German chart.

"Dirty Dynamite" was released on February 22 in Europe via Sony Music and in North America on March 5 via The End Records. The CD marks the return of KROKUS guitarist Mandy Meyer after 30 years. Sound engineer for the recording sessions was again Dennis Ward, who also recorded the band's last album, "Hoodoo".

Drummer Freddy Steady left KROKUS in May 2011 because he "concluded that he really wanted to play music just for fun in small clubs rather than conquering the world, playing arenas on huge stages with pyro props, etc.," according to guitarist Fernando Von Arb.

Premiere\\ THE LAST VEGAS: 'She's My Confusion' Video Released


Chicago rockers THE LAST VEGAS are back with another eye-catching music video for the song "She's My Confusion", off the band's fourth full-length album, "Bad Decisions", released last fall through FrostByte Media. The clip was produced and directed by the Chicago-based video production company Motion Source Video Solutions, the same team responsible for the "Evil Eyes" music video.

The "She's My Confusion" video is based on a well-known Chicago area ghost story named "Resurrection Mary" that's been around since the '30s. The young woman, Mary, had spent the evening dancing at the Oh Henry Ballroom (now the Willowbrook) with a boyfriend. Following an argument that evening, Mary stormed out into the cold winter's night, leaving the ballroom behind and walked along Archer Avenue. Not long after, she was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver who fled the scene leaving her to die. The story survives through the many men who claim picking up a young female hitchhiker along Archer Avenue between the Willowbrook Ballroom (which is the locale for the video) and Resurrection Cemetery. When reaching the cemetery, the young woman is let out only to disappear into the cemetery.

"The Willowbrook Ballroom is a Chicago musical institution; one bad-ass, old-school place which drips of mystery, intrigue and aura," said THE LAST VEGAS guitarist Adam Arling. "What better place to film an unconventional rock video for 'She's My Confusion'? We stepped back in time and addressed whether those noises we hear in the night are real, or just a dream?"

THE LAST VEGAS is in studio this month laying down tracks for its fifth full-length album, title yet to be determined, working with the great Roy Z (JUDAS PRIEST, BRUCE DICKINSON, SEPULTURA). A North American tour will follow, as will a European tour supporting BUCKCHERRY and HARDCORE SUPERSTAR. Partnering with fans through PledgeMusic, THE LAST VEGAS is offering up a variety of great exclusive opportunities like a studio hang, an acoustic performance/backyard BBQ and more.

Premiere\\ U.D.O.: 'Heavy Rain' Video Released


"Heavy Rain", the new video from U.D.O., the German metal band led by former ACCEPT frontman Udo Dirkschneider, can be seen below. The song comes off U.D.O.'s new album, "Steelhammer", which was released on May 24 via AFM Records. The CD was produced by Dirkschneider and Fitty Wienhold.

Guitarist Igor Gianola recently left U.D.O. and was replaced by Finnish axeman Kasperi Heikkinen.

U.D.O. last year announced the addition of guitarist Andrey Smirnov to the group's ranks. He replaced Stefan Kaufmann, who left the group for health reasons.

Stefan will continue to work with U.D.O. behind the scenes and produce other bands at his Roxx studio.

Kaufmann was the drummer for ACCEPT on nine albums but was forced to give up drumming towards the end of the band's initial run due to health problems.

Stefan joined U.D.O. as a guitar player in 1996, following ACCEPT's second breakup, and has recorded nine albums with them.

"Live In Sofia", the new DVD+CD and Blu-ray+CD from U.D.O., entered the Music DVD chart in Finland at position No. 1 and in Germany at No. 4.

"Live In Sofia" contains footage of U.D.O.'s November 16, 2011 concert at Hristo Botev Hall in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Rocknews\\ Kreator: banda virá ao Brasil no final do ano

Entrevista\\ Lamb Of God: prisão de Randy Blythe faliu a banda

Rashod Ollison, do The Virginian-Pilot, recentemente conduziu uma entrevista com o baterista do LAMB OF GOD, Chris Adler. Alguns trechos estão disponíveis abaixo.

Sobre a prisão do vocalista Randy Blythe na República Tcheca em junho de 2012 sobre acusação de homicídio e seu subsequente julgamento, que demorou mais de oito meses para se resolver:
Adler: “Não somente nós não conseguimos gerar qualquer renda, mas acabamos tendo que pagar mais de meio milhão de dólares em taxas legais. Isso faliu a banda inteira; Não há dinheiro para qualquer tipo de folha de pagamento ou algo assim. Quando Randy foi inocentado [em março deste ano], tudo estava em jogo neste ponto. Ou tudo acabava completamente, ou teríamos a chance de continuar e pagar estas contas para voltarmos a ficar em pé.” 

Sobre o que ele fez durante o hiato das turnês do LAMB OF GOD, incluindo tocar bateria com a banda PROTEST THE HERO.Adler: “Nós temos filhos agora, e foi ótimo passar um tempo em casa, mas bem no fundo havia algo incomodando: Será que minha carreira acabou? O que eu vou fazer agora? Eu amo este emprego, toda noite é uma sexta feira e quando isto está ameaçado, você se assusta.” 

Sobre a recepção para Blythe e o resto da banda:
Adler: “Na comunidade do metal, nós temos muita simpatia e compreensão. Muitas pessoas estão chegando perto para nos dar apoio, sabendo da música que tocamos e sabendo que este incidente pode acontecer com eles.”
“Na visão de alguém de fora, isto é só um exemplo de como o metal pode ser perigoso ou ameaçador de qualquer forma, e isto é um infortúnio, mas após isso nós vamos ser um tipo de advogados da segurança em shows e tentar fazer este estereotipo bem falso.” 

Sobre o plano do LAMB OF GOD de continuar com sua fórmula sem firulas, orientada pela melodia que reuniu um culto de seguidores.
Adler: “Nós não começamos assim porque achamos que seria popular. Nós fizemos o tipo de coisa que ouvíamos quando éramos crianças, e trouxemos esta influência para o que somos. Nós estamos melhores na composição e tentamos expandir um pouco os horizontes, mas sem nos afastar do que melhor fazemos. Neste ponto, nossos fãs esperam algo de nós. Após 8 álbuns, não posso dizer que os culpo.”

Traduza\\ METALLICA's Surprise 'Kill 'Em All' Performance: Official Footage Of Rehearsal, Show


METALLICA surprised fans at Orion Music + More on June 8 by playing its 1983 debut disc "Kill 'Em All" from beginning to end on a smaller stage at the event. METALLICA was officially announced to play a headlining set on June 9 to close out the festival, but hit the stage at 4:30 p.m. one day earlier for a 10-song set that started with "Hit The Lights" and finished out with "Metal Militia".

The afternoon slot was officially taken by an "act" called DEHAAN — which METALLICA fans may have recognized as the name of actor Dane DeHaan, who is starring in the band's upcoming 3D movie, "Metallica Through The Never". Another hint was dropped when METALLICA frontman James Hetfield posted a message on Instagram which read, "Don't miss Dehaan! #MUYA #mff #UwillRegretMissingThem #IfUdoUmightKillEmAll #winkWink #getIt?"

Hetfield came onstage first to introduce "DEHAAN," after which the rest of the members of METALLICA came out and began playing.

Official Metallica TV footage of the pre-show rehearsal in the "tuning room", as well as the actual DEHAAN performance, can be seen below.

Featured songs:

"Jump In The Fire" in tuning room (starting at 0:05)
"Hit The Lights" from the show (starting at 3:31)
"Phantom Lord" from the show (starting at 7:55)

Next month is the 30th anniversary of the release of "Kill 'Em All", which was issued on July 25, 1983.

At last year's Orion festival, METALLICA played both 1991's self-titled "black album" and 1984's "Ride The Lightning" in their entirety on separate nights.

Drummer Lars Ulrich told The Pulse Of Radio recently that the band didn't necessarily want to do the same thing each year with a different record. "Obviously, it's something that's a lot of fun to do, but you've got to just walk a fine line because you don't — obviously, METALLICA's not interested in being, you know, a nostalgia act only. So we want to just find that right line."

Other acts performing at the second annual Orion Music + More festival this past weekend included the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, RISE AGAINST, DEFTONES, THE SILVERSUN PICKUPS, BASSNECTAR, GOGOL BORDELLO, FOALS, TOMAHAWK, THE JOY FORMIDABLE, THE BRONX and DROPKICK MURPHYS.

LYRIC videos \\ BUCKCHERRY: 'Nothing Left But Tears' Lyric Video Released


The official lyric video for the song "Nothing Left But Tears" from Californian rockers BUCKCHERRY can be seen below. The track comes off the band's sixth studio album, "Confessions", which sold 18,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 20 on The Billboard 200 chart.

"Confessions" was produced by Keith Nelson and Marti Frederiksen (AEROSMITH, OZZY OSBOURNE) and features eclectic CD artwork by graffiti artist Ewok. The songs on "Confessions" merge punk grit, gutter attitude, honest storytelling, and razor sharp hooks, while the lyrics are tied together by the underlying theme of the Seven Deadly Sins.

In a recent interview with Loudwire.com, singer Josh Todd elaborated on the album's subject matter. Josh explained, "There was a point in my life when I was a youth when I lost a family member and I acted out in my grieving process through the deadly sins, so that's kind of what the story's about on the record. I think the seven sins are timeless and that everybody struggles with them in their daily lives all the time."

The provocative video for the album's first single, "Gluttony", was directed by Billy Jayne and filmed in a North Hollywood church.

A two-disc deluxe version of the "Confessions" CD is also available and features the bonus tracks "Give 'Em What They Want" and "When The Fire Starts". In addition, a bonus DVD includes the "Gluttony" music video and lyric video, behind-the-scenes footage and band interviews from the set of the "Gluttony" video shoot, and "The Story Behind Confessions" featurette.

Rocknews\\ Black Sabbath: álbum 13 é número 1 nos EUA e Reino Unido


O novo álbum do BLACK SABBATH, ’13’, estreou no primeiro posto da parada oficial de discos do Reino Unido – tudo graças aos fãs da banda que foram até as lojas - virtuais ou físicas – e compraram o lançamento do grupo.

É o primeiro disco do Sabbath a chegar ao topo da parada bretã desde ‘Paranoid’ em 1970, batendo competidores do naipe de fama do Ex-Oasis, LIAM GALLAGHER, com seu atual projeto, o BEADY EYE.

Ozzy, Iommi & Butler também lideram a parada estadunidense da Billboard no mesmo período, garantindo a eles um raro feito: o #1 nas duas paradas mais relevantes e severas do globo.

Traduza\\ Former SLAYER Drummer DAVE LOMBARDO To Guest On New SEPULTURA Album


Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA have reunited with producer Ross Robinson (KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, SLIPKNOT) to record the band's next album, tentatively due in October via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD is currently being tracked at Robinson's studio in Venice, California and is being co-produced by Steve Evetts, who previously worked with SEPULTURA on the "Nation" (2001), "Revolusongs" (2002) and "Roorback" (2003) albums, in addition to having collaborated with Ross on a number of other projects in the past.

Comments SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser: "Around noon of the 11th, Ross, Mike and myself started putting together all the guitar stuff. Before they dismantled the drums, Eloy took a photo shoot with our friend from Indonesia Pheren, a great photographer that lives in LA that we met at our last tour in Asia, great stuff. Drums out, guitar amps in.

"Ross still has the same guitar cabinet I use on 'Roots', a destroyed Marshall head that sounds amazing, it was used on albums by SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD and KORN too. It does have a kind of a magic sound. Also I have a cabinet in the studio from a Polish company Lagoba. [It's] really cool to have these options to record. For heads I'm using an Orange Rockerverb MK II that is simply the best plus two 5150 and a VHT, all sounding really good. We tried also a Vox, combo that Ross just fixed and it works perfectly, I can't believe that we are creating such a heavy sound with an Orange and with a Vox, totally Sixties.

"We found the sound and I recorded one of the guitars. It's fantastic to see Ross working with the pedals on the floor; he goes after the perfect sound for each part of the song. It's a lot of fun. Before I finished the other guitar, Ross wanted to start with Derrick [Green]. He did some vocals on the track and he kicked ass! Derrick never sounded so good and powerful. Ross is extracting the best of all of us.

"Next morning we were preparing to record the second guitar when Ross received a message on his phone. He was really excited about it so he stopped everything to tell us what was going on: Dave Lombardo, the one and only ex-drummer from SLAYER, also plays with Mike Patton on FANTOMAS, was real close to the studio with his kids and his dog enjoying some time at the beach, Ross asked if he would like to come to the studio and jam something on our album and he said YES! We were so excited, we could not believe that one of our great idols was ready to be a part of our new album.

"He came and it was so nice, so special, so awesome! He is one of the nicest guys in business and he enjoyed the idea a lot. Ross and Mike prepared two drum sets on the living room, facing each other, no cymbals, just tribal drums! When the mics were all ready and running Eloy and Dave started playing and the magic was on, so great! The part they recorded will be a special part on the middle of one of the songs, it came out crazy!

"We just have to thank Mr. Lombardo and his family for this opportunity. Thank you Dave, we will never forget this, it's a real honor to have you on the album!

"Well, the day was crazy after that, we finished the second guitar and did more vocals, long but a beautiful day. And this is how is going now at the studio, I start with guitars and then at the end of the day Derrick comes and scream his vocals, is working great like, something new for us since we always left the voice to the very end but we are loving the way things are running, we are very confident that we are doing something very special here."

SEPULTURA's upcoming CD will mark the first time the band will have recorded an album outside Brazil since "Against".

The reunion between SEPULTURA and Robinson was first suggested by Monte Conner, the former Roadrunner Records A&R chief who is now the head of Nuclear Blast Entertainment, a U.S. partnership with Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger.

Robinson produced SEPULTURA's classic "Roots" album in 1995. Released in February 1996 by Roadrunner, it was the band's last studio album to feature founding member and vocalist Max Cavalera.

"Roots" sold more than 2 million copies worldwide and was certified gold in the United States by the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) for sales in excess of 500,000 units.

SEPULTURA has spent most of the past two years on tour in support of its 12th studio album, and Nuclear Blast Records debut, "Kairos", which hit stores in July 2011.

ROCK on TV \\ "Tocamos no CSI porque a MTV não tem mais música", diz Ozzy sobre faixa do álbum "13"


O roqueiro Ozzy Osbourne, vocalista do Black Sabbath, comentou nesta terça-feira (11) a decisão de colocar a lançar o single "End of The Beginning" durante a série televisiva "CSI" em maio. "Vieram me perguntar muito porque a gente decidiu tocar no CSI. É porque não tem mais música na MTV", disse o cantor a Jim Norton, apresentador de uma transmissão ao vivo pelo YouTube que aborda o lançamento de "13", novo álbum de estúdio do grupo depois de mais de 30 anos.

Pouco antes da transmissão principal, o apresentador Jim Norton conversou com Ozzy e o baixista Geezer Butler nos bastidores do estúdio especialmente montado para o evento. Butler comentou a estranheza em relação às resenhas positivas que o disco recebeu. "Antigamente, a gente era mais xingado, então agora a gente fica até ressabiado para saber o que representam esses elogios", afirmou. Atualmente, "13" está no topo das paradas de 50 países.
 
Ozzy também falou sobre a falta de preocupação da banda com a duração das músicas, que fogem do padrão comercial de 2 a 4 minutos de extensão. "A gente não tenta editar nada, a música acaba quando tem que acabar", disse o vocalista.

Antes da sessão de perguntas e respostas, um documentário sobre a gravação do álbum foi exibido ao vivo no canal de vídeos pela internet, mostrando comentários dos membros da banda assim como do produtor Rick Rubin. A presença do baterista Brad Wilk, que substituiu Bill Ward no disco, também foi comentada no filme. Rubin defendeu a escolha por conta da versatilidade de Wilk, que correspondeu às expectativas do produtor não só para os ritmos típicos do heavy metal como também pela capacidade de reproduzir levadas típícas do blues.

Premiere\\ BLACK SABBATH: 'God Is Dead?' Video Released


"God Is Dead?", the brand new video from BLACK SABBATH, can be seen below. The song is the debut single from "13", the first BLACK SABBATH record in 35 years to feature singer Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler all playing together.

The "God Is Dead?" clip was directed by controversial filmmaker and social activist Peter Joseph, who is best known for his counter-culture/social revolution film series under the banner title of "Zeitgeist", meaning the "general intellectual, moral and cultural climate of an era."

What was deemed more of a "short film" than a music video, the work had its world premiere screening at the band's June 6 album release in Hollywood's Harmony Gold Preview Center. Comprised of symbology extracted from his documentary trilogy, coupled with layers of imposed archival imagery of the band, marking their history in a unique abstraction, the "God is Dead?" official music video is a sign of the times.

In an interview, Joseph stated about his collaboration with BLACK SABBATH: "After an initial hesitancy in the direction proposed using just existing footage from my films, I quickly realized it was to be an extremely interesting and original expression. The gesture of the song 'God is Dead?', with its subtle reflection on the often dark world we inhabit and questioning of how such a world can be if there was a god, resonated with me."

He continued: "It was expressed at the start that my work had been an influence on the song to begin with, so that was very inspiring to hear.

"I grew up listening to early BLACK SABBATH and am a big fan of the core message. Songs such as 'War Pigs' and the anti-war, pro-unity gesture found in those early albums are very much in line with my values. I was honored to help."

A musician as well as a filmmaker and outspoken social critic, Joseph has run the gamut of socially conscious expressions, including founding the global sustainability advocacy group The Zeitgeist Movement, along with being the founder/curator of the annual Zeitgeist Media Arts Festival, which holds its annual event each year in Hollywood for socially conscious art. He hosts an online satire web series called "Culture in Decline" and is in production of a new feature film series called "InterReflections".

"13" is due out June 11 on Vertigo/Republic. This marks BLACK SABBATH's return to Vertigo, their original label, and the group's first studio album together since 1978's "Never Say Die!"

Osbourne went on the BBC in England to discuss "God Is Dead?" and the inspiration behind the track. Ozzy explained, "I was in somebody's office and there was a magazine on a table and it just said, 'God Is Dead', and I suddenly thought about 9/11 and all these terrorist things and religion and how many people have died in the name of religion. When you think about the tragedy that's happened throughout time, it just came in my head. You'd think by now that their God would have stopped people dying in the name of, so I just starting thinking that people must be thinking, 'Where is God? God is dead' and it just hit me."

Ozzy added that the question mark at the end of the title is his way of showing that he's not sure about the answer himself, saying, "At the end of the thing, there's still a bit of hope because there I sing that I don't believe that God is dead. It's just a question of when you see so many dreadful people killing each other with bombs, and blowing the tube trains up and the World Trade Center."

The drum tracks on the album were laid down by RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE sticksman Brad Wilk following original drummer Bill Ward's decision to bow out of the reunion.

Ozzy told an Australian radio station that "13" is "mind-blowing," adding, "It's better than my wildest dreams; it's so good."

SABBATH kicked off its world tour in support of "13" on April 20 in Auckland.
