Premiere\\ HARDCORE SUPERSTAR: 'Last Call For Alcohol' Video Released

"Last Call For Alcohol", the new video from Swedish sleaze rockers HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's latest album, "C'mon Take On Me", which was released in Europe on March 1, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2010's "Split Your Lip" was produced by the bandmembers themselves and mixed by Randy Staub (METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT).

"C'mon Take On Me" was made available as a CD in slipcase, as a digital download, on black vinyl and on strictly limited pink vinyl (only available at the Nuclear Blast mailorder).

Commented HARDCORE SUPERSTAR drummer Magnus "Adde" Andreasson: "We came up with the idea [for the 'C'mon Take On Me' cover] during the recordings of the album. It's just so sexy when a woman jumps into a drum kit — what could be more exciting? We discussed the concept with photographer Micke Johansson, who loved the idea. What we especially like about it is the combination of sex and bruises!"

LYRIC Videos \\ BEHEMOTH: 'Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer' Lyric Video Released

The official lyric video for the song "Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer" from Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's long-awaited new album, "The Satanist", which will be released on February 3 in the U.K., February 4 in North America and Poland, February 5 in Japan, and February 7 in the rest of the world. Pre-order bundles, include: CD, LP, t-shirt, as well as the deluxe box set, and are available at metalblade.com/behemoth in North America, nuclearblast.de/behemoth in Europe, and on behemoth-store.com (digibook and box).

BEHEMOTH's video for the new single "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel" can be seen below. This visual masterpiece was produced by Grupa 13 and is one of BEHEMOTH's most unsettling and unique works to date.

BEHEMOTH frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski states about the video: "Yes, we took all the time in the world to complete this project. And we did everything that was humanely possible to accurately express our vision. We crossed the Rubicon.

"'Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel' is an ecstatic manifest of our unrestrained artistic will, where we dare to reach out beyond the limitations of the heavy metal genre. And it's only the beginning."

"The Satanist" deluxe box, which is available in North America as an European import, includes: CD/DVD digibook in silver mirror slipcase with a high-quality 44-page booklet (with gold foil, UV gloss lamination), supersize poster flag (approx. 3.5' x 5'), wooden black inverted rosary cross, metal pin, black envelope with black communion wafers. The DVD, "Live Barbarossa", includes a professionally filmed show in Ekaterinburg, Russia, as well as 30-minute documentary about the creative process behind "The Satanist".

"The Satanist" was produced by BEHEMOTH, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand at Hertz Studio. The CD was mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER) and mastered by Ted Jensen (METALLICA, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound in New York City. The cover art for "The Satanist" was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist Denis Forkas. The paint used included some of Nergal's own blood. Additional art and design was completed by Metastazis (PARADISE LOST) and Zbigniew Bielak (WATAIN, GHOST).

"I wanted to incorporate some of my DNA into the art," Nergal told Australia's Heavy magazine about having his blood included in "The Satanist" artwork.

"This album seems to be so defining of who we are now as people and as individuals, and considering all the instances in recent years, [we wanted] to make it more 'ours' than it is usually."

In a recent interview with Revolver magazine, Darski described BEHEMOTH's new songs as "very atmospheric" and "very emotional." "Think BURZUM meets NEW ORDER meets KILLING JOKE," he added. But at the same time, fans shouldn't expect the album to sound too far removed from BEHEMOTH's past efforts. "Take SLAYER, for example," Darski said. "Whatever genre they deal with, they still end up sounding like SLAYER. Even when they were flirting with nu-metal, it was a SLAYER record. Same with BEHEMOTH."

According to Darski, at least some of the inspiration for the new BEHEMOTH album came from his five-month bout of leukemia he overcame in January 2011, after receiving a bone-marrow transplant. "When I was in the hospital, I was collecting experiences and emotions," he said. "I'm pretty sure that it's coming out now. There are moments I catch myself thinking about how my state was back then. It was me versus life, me versus death. It definitely changed my thoughts a lot. It's 100 percent being reflected in the record and songs I'm writing nowadays. I'm way more radical than I used to be."

"The Satanist" track listing:

01. Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel
02. Furor Divinus
03. Messe Noire
04. Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer
05. Amen
06. The Satanist
07. Ben Sahar
08. In the Absence ov Light
09. O Father O Satan O Sun!

LYRIC Videos \\ CALIBAN: 'Your Song' Lyric Video

The official lyric video for the song "Yougr Song" from Germany's CALIBAN can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's new album, "Ghost Empire", which is being released on the following dates via Century Media Records:

* Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand: January 24
* Rest of Europe: January 27
* U.S., Canada: February 4

The CD was produced by by guitarist Marc Görtz in cooperation with Benny Richter.

Said Görtz of the the "Ghost Empire" art, which was created by U.K. artist Chris Lovell: "Another great artist told me about Chris and his art. When I checked out his page, I loved his style and amazing drawings straight away. So I wrote him a message if he would be into designing a t-shirt design for us. It turned out great, so there was no doubt whom to ask for the new album artwork for 'Ghost Empire'! I told him what the album is about and he said that he would love to do it. It didn't take long for him to come up with first ideas which were amazing! I hope we can work with him on other projects in the future, he is a great guy and easy to work with and I think the result speaks for itself!"

Added Lovell: "I have been heavily into metal since the age of 12.

"It's always nice when a band I am a fan of contacts me with a brief for a project.

"I was stoked to read Marc's ideas as post-apocalyptic imagery is something I have an obsession with. I grew up loving films like 'Mad Max', 'Cyborg' and the 'Fist Of The North Star' anime. There's something about destroyed buildings and wastelands that stir my imagination and conjure up all kinds of haunting images in my head. It's also much more fun and easier to draw ruined buildings than perfect ones!

"Marc and I brainstormed ideas one evening and we came up with lots of elements we liked such as crows, scarecrows, rats etc. I sketched out a very rough concept idea and layout for the basic image. The front and back cover is all in one, so I had a nice wide landscape to work with. I liked the idea of a road on the main cover, leading to what could look like a hive of collapsed skyscrapers and buildings, leaning on each other and climbing into the clouds. On the left side a cliff face leading down to stormy seas and a shore line littered with ship wrecks and capsized boats.

"I wanted the image to look void of human life and haunting.

"I drew out the bulk of the main image in pencil, then used inks and acrylic paint to add depth and highlights. I then scanned the image in and coloured it with a graphics tablet on Photoshop. I drew a number of other elements, like telegraph poles, crows, skulls and rats and scanned them in separately.

"I wanted to be able to experiment with placement and give the band the option to move elements around etc.

"I lost track of how many hours I put into the piece, it all becomes a blur.

"I like to stream horror movies or listen to music and just lose myself in the art I make.

"I have a bit of an obsession with detail and I tend to spend hours tweaking elements on an image people will probably never even notice.

"CALIBAN have been a pleasure to work with. After I had the pleasure of hearing the demos while working on this project it is an honour to have done the artwork for what will be an amazing album!"

CALIBAN's eighth studio album, "I Am Nemesis", entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 21.

"I Am Nemesis" was released in North America on February 28, 2012 via Century Media Records. The CD featured guest appearances by Marcus Bischoff (HEAVEN SHALL BURN) and Mitch Lucker (SUICIDE SILENCE).

TRETAS\\ Trent Reznor xinga produtores do Grammy após show ser 'interrompido'

'Um FUCK YOU sincero, caras', escreveu cantor do Nine Inch Nails.

O líder da banda Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor, xingou os organizadores do Grammy após a interrupção precoce de seu show na cerimônia deste domingo (26). A apresentação ao lado de Dave Grohl, do Foo Fighters, de Josh Homme, do Queens of the Stone Age, e de Lyndsey Buckingham, do Freetwood Mac, foi cortada pouco antes do fim. Subitamente, começaram a subir os créditos e passou a ser exibida uma propaganda.

"A maior noite da música... para ser desrespeitado. Um FUCK YOU sincero, caras", escreveu o Reznor no Twitter, pouco depois de deixar o palco. O "supergrupo" havia acabado de tocar "Copy of A", faixa do álbum "Hesitation marks" (2013) do Nine Inch Nails, e executava "My God is the sun", faixa do álbum "...Like clockwork" do Queens of the Stone Age, quando veio o desfecho inesperado.

A revista americana "The Hollywood Reporter" reproduziu uma declaração do presidente da academia responsável pelo Grammy. Nos bastidores do evento, Neil Portnow afirmou: "Nós reservamos o final para algo que é como uma jam, porque você deixar a energia fluir e, então, é apenas uma questão de cronômetro".

Traduza\\ METALLICA Performs 'One' With Chinese Pianist LANG LANG

METALLICA played its classic song "One" with Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang earlier tonight (Sunday, January 26) at the 56th annual Grammy Awards. Video footage of the performance can be seen below.

During the rehearsals for tonight's show, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich spoke to Artisan News about playing with Lang Lang and how it feels to be back in primetime at the awards.

"It's been 22 years, I do believe [since we last performed at the Grammys], so we're excited to be back," he said. "That's a long time to be away from anything, so we've got a lot of energy stored up that we're ready to unleash.

"Obviously, the Grammys are mostly about mashups, and so we're doing a very cool one with our new best friend, which is the worldwide renowned pianist Lang Lang."

Speaking about the collaboration with Lang Lang, Ulrich said: "Well, I would like to think that on a broader scale that music is music. We have a tendency in METALLICA to not look much beyond that in terms of definitions. But, obviously, he's a very talented musician, he's a very dynamic musician, he projects himself very well. I mean, when he plays, he's really full of energy and he's got a lot of kind of showmanship and kind of energy that protrudes off the stage and right into people's hearts and souls. So I would like to think that it's a good collaboration."

METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett told Rolling Stone that the band's performance at the Grammy Awards would be "completely insane." He explained, "Lang Lang has interjected himself into the song in a way I don't think anyone else has ever done in the course of our career. He's going to be playing major parts of the song. He's going to be playing through the melody."

Hammett told The Pulse Of Radio that the song's arrangement highlighted Lang Lang's playing without changing the song. "We're not lightening up the song just for him," he said. "We're still hanging onto all the heavy parts and it's gonna be amazing. He's just an amazing pianist, and at one point he's going to be, like, weaving in and out of my guitar solo and playing parts of my guitar solo with me. That's gonna be interesting. I've never, ever experienced that ever before with anyone we've ever played with."

"One" was the first single released from METALLICA's 1988 album "…And Justice For All", becoming the first song from the band to gain substantial commercial radio airplay. It was also the basis for the first music video the group ever did.

Hammett told Rolling Stone that METALLICA has recorded a demo of "One" with Lang Lang's contributions on it.

Premiere\\ STEEL PANTHER: 'The Burden Of Being Wonderful' Video Released

Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER have released the second video from their upcoming third album, "All You Can Eat", due out on April 1 in North America via Open E Records/KLS. "The Burden Of Being Wonderful" was directed by Kirker Butler, who is best known for his work as a writer and producer on "Family Guy" and "The Cleveland Show".

Butler explains what drew him to direct the video: "I grew up on heavy metal videos. They were the best things on MTV (along with the DURAN DURAN videos with the naked girls).

"I wanted to make a heavy metal video the way they used to make them, but with better production values and less Tawny Kitaen."

Comedian Matt Braunger, who has been seen on "Madtv" and NBC’s "Up All Night", plays the lead in the video that follows an Average Joe throughout his day as he sees himself in situations that make him seem as wonderful as STEEL PANTHER.

"All You Can Eat" was produced by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, ADRENALINE MOB) and is available for pre-order at SteelPantherRocks.com.

From the opening acoustic riff of album opener "Pussywhipped" to final chord hit in the album closer "She's On The Rag", it is clear STEEL PANTHER is back and better than ever. Songs like "Gloryhole", "Gangbang At The Old Folks Home" and "BVS" all showcase STEEL PANTHER's incredible musicianship and ability to write memorable and sometimes educational songs.

The debut single, "Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World", was released in November with a star-studded video directed by Rob Riggle that has been viewed over 660,000 times.

"All You Can Eat" track listing:

01. Pussywhipped
02. Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World
03. Gloryhole
04. Bukkake Tears
05. Gangbang At The Old Folks Home
06. Ten Strikes You’re Out
07. The Burden Of Being Wonderful
08. F@#king My Heart In The Ass
09. BVS
10. You're Beautiful When You Don't Talk
11. If I Was The King
12. She's On The Rag

Regarding the new CD title, singer Michael Starr said: "We feel like STEEL PANTHER is like a buffet. You know what I mean?! There's a little bit of everything for everybody. And you can have as much of us as you want."

The not-safe-for-work version of the official "Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World" video includes celebrity cameos by "Jackass" star Steve-O, porn icon Ron Jeremy, "Breaking Bad" actor RJ Mitte and MMA fighter Chuck Liddell.

Speaking to the South Bend Tribune, STEEL PANTHER drummer Stix Zadinia (real name: Darren Leader) stated about the band's new CD: "If you liked [2009's] 'Feel The Steel' and [2011's] 'Balls Out', you will love this record. It is more heavy metal songs that are hooky and great and fun and make you want to rock and make you want to have a good time and party. Also, there is a lot of riffage on this album that I think anybody who has ever questioned this band — 'Oh, those guys wear spandex and it is 2000-whatever' — these songs are going to put all of that to rest."

"Balls Out" sold nearly 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 40 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Premiere\\ JAKE E. LEE's RED DRAGON CARTEL: 'Deceived' Video Released

"Deceived", the first-ever video from RED DRAGON CARTEL, the band led by former OZZY OSBOURNE and BADLANDS guitarist Jake E. Lee, can be seen below. The song is taken from RED DRAGON CARTEL's self-titled debut album, which will be released on January 28 via Frontiers Records. The CD was recorded at Las Vegas' The Hideout Recording Studio — owned and operated by Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, IN THIS MOMENT) — and was produced by R. Bernard Mann (a.k.a. Ronnie Mancuso) and Jake E. Lee, and executive-produced, mixed and mastered by Churko.

RED DRAGON CARTEL, which references the axeman's Japanese roots, also features Darren "D.J." Smith of Canadian metallers WARMACHINE, on vocals, Ronnie Mancuso (BEGGARS & THIEVES) on bass and Jonas Fairley (BLACK BETTY) on drums.

Jake E. Lee is best known for his work in BADLANDS and as guitarist for OZZY OSBOURNE on "Bark At The Moon" and "The Ultimate Sin" albums.

"Red Dragon Cartel" also features various guest appearances from some of rock's most notable faces, including legendary CHEAP TRICK vocalist Robin Zander, former IRON MAIDEN singer Paul Di'Anno, KILL DEVIL HILL/ex-PANTERA bassist Rex Brown, Sass Jordan, Todd Kerns and Brent Fitz (SLASH) and IN THIS MOMENT frontwoman Maria Brink.

From the opening riff of "Deceived" to final sustained piano chord of "Exquisite Tenderness", it is clear RED DRAGON CARTEL has created a hard rock gem. Infectious songs such as "Shout It Out", "Wasted" and "Slave" showcase the band's ability to write memorable hooks and vocal melodies. Zander of lends his voice to the track "Feeder" and a lyric video for the song can be seen below.

The album is available for pre-order on Amazon.com or digitally on iTunes and comes with an instant download of "Deceived".

Lee's glorious past: "Bark At The Moon", "The Ultimate Sin" and "Rock 'N' Roll Rebel" (all originally recorded by OZZY OSBOURNE), as well as "Shine On" and "High Wire" (BADLANDS).

Traduza\\ Video: STONE SOUR Performs Cover Of JUDAS PRIEST's 'Heading Out To The Highway' In Baltimore

Fan-filmed video footage of STONE SOUR performing a cover version of the JUDAS PRIEST classic "Heading Out To The Highway" on January 17 in Baltimore, Maryland can be seen below.

As previously reported, STONE SOUR guitarist Jim Root has chosen to sit out the band's current North American tour so that he can concentrate on writing music for the next SLIPKNOT album. The Pulse Of Radio spoke with Root and asked him to explain his decision in a little more depth. "You know, unfortunately I'm only one person," he said. "I can't really be in two places at one time and the amount of focus that I need to put into SLIPKNOT makes it really difficult for me to be on tour with STONE SOUR. It's crushing and it's heartbreaking and I really don't like the idea of not being out there, but I don't really see any other way to really do it without — I mean, this is like the best way that we could come up with for a compromise."

Root said that it's possible that SLIPKNOT could enter a studio as early as January, although the group has yet to make any official announcements regarding its next record.

Root is being replaced for the month-long tour, which began on January 14 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, by Christian Martucci. POP EVIL and STOLEN BABIES are also on the bill.

The trek will mark the end of the touring cycle for STONE SOUR and the band's two-album set, "House Of Gold And Bones".

SLIPKNOT's long-awaited fifth album will be its first since 2008's "All Hope Is Gone" and first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and last month's dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison.

Entitled "Die Without Hope", the CD was recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida and produced by Mark Lewis (ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, DEICIDE, SIX FEET UNDER). Cover art for the album was created by renowned artist and longtime collaborator Godmachine.

"CARNIFEX and Godmachine have been working together for many years," commented CARNIFEX vocalist Scott Lewis. "To be able to bring his art to the cover of this album is truly when all the pieces fell into place.

"The artwork here represents the tone and overall blackened feeling 'Die Without Hope' captures."

"Die Without Hope" will contain 10 tracks and over 35 minutes of crushing metal. Lewis states, "'Die Without Hope' is CARNIFEX at our very best. This is an album over two years in the making. We pushed ourselves every step of the process to include new elements never before heard on any previous CARNIFEX album."

"Die Without Hope" track listing:

01. Salvation Is Dead
02. Dark Days
03. Condemned To Decay
04. Die Without Hope
05. Hatred And Slaughter
06. Dragged Into The Grave
07. Rotten Souls
08. Last Words
09. Reflection Of The Forgotten
10. Where The Light Dies

The official lyric video for the song "Dragged Into The Grave" can be seen below.

On recently signing to Nuclear Blast, Lewis continues: "Signing with Nuclear Blast is a career-defining moment for CARNIFEX.

"To be aligned with the largest metal label on earth is a true honor.

"This worldwide deal signals a turning point for us as a band and individuals. Together with Nuclear Blast, you will see CARNIFEX like you have never seen us before. Prepare yourself for an album that crushes any and all expectations. An album that will stand as the definitive mark for modern metal."

CARNIFEX's Nuclear Blast Records debut will also introduce new lead guitarist and longtime friend of the band, Jordan Lockrey.

CIRCLE PIT \\ ARCHITECTS: Video For New Song 'Naysayer' Released

British metallers ARCHITECTS will release their new album, "Lost Forever // Lost Together", in North America on March 11 via Epitaph Records. The CD will be made available in in Australia through UNFD and in Canada via New Damage Records.

After writing demos on their successful run on Vans Warped Tour 2013, ARCHITECTS (whose lineup includes chief songwriter Tom Searle on guitar/keyboards, his twin brother Dan on drums, Sam Carter on lead vocals, and Alex Dean on bass) took to Studio Fredman in the Swedish city of Gothenburg in the middle of the sunlight-starved winter. Working with producers Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd (both known for their work with BRING ME THE HORIZON and chosen largely because "we've always been big fans of how massive their records sound," according to Sam), ARCHITECTS spent a month living in the studio so that they could record whenever inspiration hit.

On "Lost Forever // Lost Together", the band artfully weaves in ambient elements that sometimes verge on gauzy and dreamlike. Take the instrumental "Red Hypergiant" that threads a sample of voiceover from a Carl Sagan film through an oceanic wall of sound, for example, while the album-closing "Distant Blue" starts out as a snarling, lead-heavy epic and then unfolds into spacey ethereality. Fans will notice the band deepen their blend of brutal, thundering metal and melody-spiked hardcore with heavier riffs and intricate arrangements inspired by THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, and even artists unlikely such as SIGUR ROS. With lyrical content delving into everything from the Fukushima nuclear disaster to Tom's recent bout with skin cancer, "Lost Forever // Lost Together" artfully delivers an emotional charge that's both devastating and glorious.

As for the album title, ARCHITECTS borrowed a lyric from the track "Youth Is Wasted OnTthe Young". As Tom Searle poignantly states, "We're all lost. Everyone's just trying to find their place, and hopefully we'll all get there eventually."

"Lost Forever // Lost Together" track listing:

01. Gravedigger
02. Naysayer
03. Broken Cross
04. The Devil Is Near
05. Dead Man Talking
06. Red Hypergiant
07. C.A.N.C.E.R.
08. Colony Collapse
09. Castles In The Air
10. Youth Is Wasted On The Young
11. The Distant Blue

The official video for the song "Naysayer" can be seen below.

ARCHITECTS' last album, "Daybreaker", was released on May 28, 2012 in Europe and June 5, 2012 in North America via Century Media Records.

ARCHITECTS in 2012 released the "The Here And Now 2012 Special Edition" including "Devil's Island" and "Untitled" as well as all video clips ("Day In Day Out", "Learn To Live", "Heartburn", "Delete, Rewind" and "An Open Letter To Myself"), making-of footage for "Learn To Live" and "Heartburn" plus several previously released online clips.

CIRCLE PIT \\ SUICIDE SILENCE: 'Unanswered' Performance Clip Featuring PHIL BOZEMAN

On December 21, 2012, the metal community came together in an amazing way to celebrate the life of SUICIDE SILENCE singer Mitch Lucker and raise money for his daughter's future education (with an unforgettable evening of collaborative performances between past/present SUICIDE SILENCE members and elite heavy vocalists that created a defining emotional event forever captured on video and audio.

Throughout the historic event, SUICIDE SILENCE band members played as guest vocalists covered their songs.

"Mitchell was born on October 20, 1984," says Mitch's mother, Denise Haddad. "He came out literally screaming and it ended up being his legacy."

"Mitchell was given that talent and that gift [of connecting with people through music] and even though he's not here today, those gifts are gonna continue to be shared because those young teens are going to tell their own children. That's how the legacy is gonna be able to be passed on."

The official "Suicide Silence - Ending Is The Beginning: The Mitch Lucker Memorial Show" listing is as follows:

01. Destruction Of A Statue (with Jonny Davy)
02. Distorted Thought Of Addiction (with Greg Wilburn)
03. Ending Is The Beginning (with Brook Reeves)

Mitch Lucker died November 1, 2012 after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash in Huntington Beach on Halloween night.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Lucker struck a light pole near the intersection of Main and 13th streets and was thrown from his 2013 Harley Davidson. The motorcycle continued sliding south on Main Street and struck a northbound 2007 Nissan Titan pickup.

SUICIDE SILENCE recently entered the studio to begin recording its new album with producer Steve Evetts (SEPULTURA, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, WARBRINGER). The group's first CD with new vocalist Eddie Hermida (ex-ALL SHALL PERISH) will be released next summer via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, a division of Nuclear Blast Records formed by Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger and former Roadrunner A&R chief Monte Conner.

LYRIC Videos \\ THE SWORD: 'The Hidden Masters' Lyric Video Read

The official lyric video for the song "The Hidden Masters" from Austin, Texas metal luminaries THE SWORD can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's fourth album, "Apocryphon", which sold nearly 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 17 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was produced and engineered by J. Robbins (CLUTCH, JAWBOX) at Magpie Cage Studios and features cover art by famed comic book artist J.H. Williams III (Batwoman, Promethea).

Asked about the band's decision to work with J. Robbins on "Apocryphon" after self-producing two records and then working with Matt Bayles, guitarist Kyle Shutt told AltPress.com, "We're all huge CLUTCH fans, and we know those guys real well. [James] did two of their last three records, and those sound great, so we figured it was a no-brainer. We called him up and he was into it. He saw our live show at a club in Baltimore on the tour before we came here so he could get a feel of the kind of show we put on because we wanted to make an album that sounds like we do live in a club. And it was great. It was a real speedy process."

On the topic of the musical direction of the new album, Shutt said, "It is a reflection of everything that we [have gone] through and the lessons we learned. We then deal with these situations metaphorically in our lyrics. This record is just 10 banging hard rockers. There's no real 'stick-out' thrash song, or, like, this one is the ballad. I don't think there's going to be any instrumental songs on this record, either, so that'll be a first for us. It's just 10 kick-ass rock songs."

Regarding the subject matter covered in the new songs' lyrics, Shutt said, "There are lyrical themes that weave in and out of the songs, but there's no story or anything like that. With 'Warp Riders', J.D. [guitarist/vocalist John Cronise] had already written [the story] and now he [doesn't] have the time to sit down and write another book. We had the idea to make a comic book for 'Warp Riders', but we had some really poor management at the time, so nothing really came together with that and it was going to cost so much money that it never saw the light of day. It was just a nice thing we did. Now we're moving on to other things."

SEFOTEU\\ Lita Ford: show na Colômbia ainda neste mês; Brasil fora

>

LITA FORD, vocalista e guitarrista que tornou-se conhecida graças ao seu trabalho com o THE RUNAWAYS, tem um show agendado na Colômbia, onde se apresenta pela primeira vez, no Car Audio Rock Festival, no próximo dia 26. Como faltam apenas 15 dias e nenhuma produtora brasileira se manifestou até o momento, é bem provável que, apesar do fato de Lita estar tão próxima, lamentavelmente o Brasil fique de fora.

CIRCLE PIT \\ I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN: 'Thirty One & Sevens' Video Released

"Thirty One & Sevens", the new video from the Australian metalcore outfit I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN, can be seen at Music Feeds. The clip, which was directed by Robot Army Productions (BODYJAR, ANBERLIN, THE AMITY AFFLICTION), is based in a post-apocalyptic world, and tells the story of two slaves that manage to escape and start a revolution after demonstrating to their slave compatriots that their captors can be defeated. It was filmed in a quarry in Anakie, just outside of Geelong, Australia.

"Thirty One & Sevens" is taken from I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN's first album in six years, "Beloved", which will be released on February 18 in the U.S. via Epitaph Records.

By their own admission, I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN have endured a decidedly checkered past. Over the years the band saw multiple vocalist changes and other personnel exchanges, side-project sojourns and moonlighting in other bands, hiatuses and break-ups. Yet through it all, their musical output both live and on record has remained thoroughly inspired.

For several years, the band lay dormant, as members went on to play in other bands. In 2011, I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN reclaimed their sound, style, history, and legacy with an all-new lineup, and original member Jona Weinhofen, who spent time with BLEEDING THROUGH and BRING ME THE HORIZON. Joined by new screamer Jamie Hope (ex-RED SHORE), Shane O'Brien on drums (DEEZ NUTS), Kevin Cameron on guitar, Benjamin Coyte on bass, and of course, Jona bringing vocal choruses, guitar and keyboard to the mix.

I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN entered the studio in 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden with Fredrik Nordström (BRING ME THE HORIZON, AT THE GATES, IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, ARCHITECTS) to record "Beloved".

"We've really extended ourselves," says Weinhofen. "But we've done it in a way where it's tasteful and it makes sense with the music. It's not like we’ve gone from sounding like a metalcore band to sounding like DIMMU BORGIR. It still sounds very much like PROM QUEEN."

"Beloved" track listing:

01. Beginning Of The End
02. To The Wolves
03. Bright Enough
04. Meilor
05. Thirty One & Sevens
06. Calvert Street
07. Kærjrlighet
08. The Beaten Path
09. Nightmares
10. No One Will Save Us
11. Brevity

Rocknews\\ Steel Panther: capa do novo álbum é baseada na Última Ceia da Bíblia

A banda americana Steel Panther divulgou a capa de seu novo álbum, All You Can Eat, que será lançado no dia 1º de abril pela Universal Republic. A arte faz alusão a Ultima Ceia da Bíblia Sagrada. Veja mais abaixo.

Sucessor de Balls Out (2009), que chegou ao 40º lugar da Billboard 200, All You Can Eat é o terceiro registro de estúdio do grupo.

No final do ano passado a banda disponibilizou no Youtube cenas de bastidores do videoclipe de "Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World" - assista aqui. O vídeo segue à risca a proposta sonora e visual do grupo - sexo, drogas e rock and roll - e contou com as participações do ator Steve-O (Jackass), do comediante Hal Sparks e da lenda do MMA Chuck Lidell.

O Steel Panther surgiu com a intenção de reviver de forma divertida e cômica o chamado Glam Metal, gênero que tomou conta dos Estados Unidos na década de 1980. A banda é formada por Michael Starr (vocal), Satchel (guitarra), Lexxi Foxx (baixo) e Stix Zadinia (bateria). Todos os integrantes usam nomes fictícios.

Tracklist de All You Can Eat:

01. Pussywhipped
02. Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World
03. Gloryhole
04. Bukkake Tears
05. Gangbang At The Old Folks Home
06. Ten Strikes You’re Out
07. The Burden Of Being Wonderful
08. F@#king My Heart In The Ass
09. BVS
10. You’re Beautiful When You Don’t Talk
11. If I Was The King
12. She’s On The Rag

Premiere\\ LYNAM: 'Cold' Video Released

"Cold", the new video from Birmingham, Alabama rockers LYNAM, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's latest EP, "Halfway To Hell", which was released on December 10, 2013 via New Ocean Media.

Says LYNAM vocalist Jacob Bunton: "'Cold' is about being fed up with your current situation and wanting to start over.

"Sometimes it's hard to leave behind who you are to find out who you could become.

"There are a lot of obstacles in life.

"Sometimes it's your dreams that break your heart the most. The struggle pushes most people to their breaking point and they give up.

"Everybody believes their problems are worse than everybody else's.

"Tomorrow is never promised and the world will knock you down, but it's up to each of us to keep standing back up.

"I'm a big believer in faith and that you can be whatever you want to be regardless of where you come from.

"The video for the song was filmed in Nashville, Tennessee by director John Fucile and his team at Smack Dab Media. The story line follows a girl that has basically given up on life. The video starts with her dead in the woods and then tells her story in reverse."

"Halfway To Hell" was helmed by the band and longtime producer Jason Elgin (COLLECTIVE SOUL, MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER, TERRIBLE THINGS).

LYNAM consists of Jacob Bunton (lead vocals, guitar), David Lynam (drums, vocals), Cody Elliott (Bass, Vocals), and Lonny Paul (guitar, vocals).

In 2006, LYNAM signed a deal with DRT/Universal and released the critically acclaimed album "Slave To The Machine". The follow-up CD, "Tragic City Symphony", was released in 2008 on Megaforce/Mascot Records and featured the radio singles "Save My Soul", "Lindsay Says" and "Porn Star". All three singles reached the Top 10 on the Active Rock independent chart, with "Save My Soul" reaching Top 5. A live album entitled "Thank You Goodnight!" was released November 2010 through Island Def Jam/New Ocean Media. Shortly after the release of "Thank You Goodnight!", frontman Jacob Bunton joined up with former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler to form the band ADLER.

See them welcome Mille Petrozza (KREATOR) and Michael Denner (MERCYFUL FATE) on stage for "7 Shots" and inviting Barney Greenway (NAPALM DEATH) to growl in "Evelyn", before they launch their classic "Pool Of Booze, Booze, Booza".

CIRCLE PIT \\ CALIBAN: 'Devil's Night' Video Released

The official video for the song "Devil's Night" from Germany's CALIBAN can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's new album, "Ghost Empire", which will be released on the following dates via Century Media Records:

* Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand: January 24
* Rest of Europe: January 27
* U.S., Canada: February 4

The CD was produced by by guitarist Marc Görtz in cooperation with Benny Richter.

Said Görtz of the the "Ghost Empire" art, which was created by U.K. artist Chris Lovell: "Another great artist told me about Chris and his art. When I checked out his page, I loved his style and amazing drawings straight away. So I wrote him a message if he would be into designing a t-shirt design for us. It turned out great, so there was no doubt whom to ask for the new album artwork for 'Ghost Empire'! I told him what the album is about and he said that he would love to do it. It didn't take long for him to come up with first ideas which were amazing! I hope we can work with him on other projects in the future, he is a great guy and easy to work with and I think the result speaks for itself!"

Added Lovell: "I have been heavily into metal since the age of 12.

"It's always nice when a band I am a fan of contacts me with a brief for a project.

"I was stoked to read Marc's ideas as post-apocalyptic imagery is something I have an obsession with. I grew up loving films like 'Mad Max', 'Cyborg' and the 'Fist Of The North Star' anime. There's something about destroyed buildings and wastelands that stir my imagination and conjure up all kinds of haunting images in my head. It's also much more fun and easier to draw ruined buildings than perfect ones!

"Marc and I brainstormed ideas one evening and we came up with lots of elements we liked such as crows, scarecrows, rats etc. I sketched out a very rough concept idea and layout for the basic image. The front and back cover is all in one, so I had a nice wide landscape to work with. I liked the idea of a road on the main cover, leading to what could look like a hive of collapsed skyscrapers and buildings, leaning on each other and climbing into the clouds. On the left side a cliff face leading down to stormy seas and a shore line littered with ship wrecks and capsized boats.

"I wanted the image to look void of human life and haunting.

"I drew out the bulk of the main image in pencil, then used inks and acrylic paint to add depth and highlights. I then scanned the image in and coloured it with a graphics tablet on Photoshop. I drew a number of other elements, like telegraph poles, crows, skulls and rats and scanned them in separately.

"I wanted to be able to experiment with placement and give the band the option to move elements around etc.

"I lost track of how many hours I put into the piece, it all becomes a blur.

"I like to stream horror movies or listen to music and just lose myself in the art I make.

"I have a bit of an obsession with detail and I tend to spend hours tweaking elements on an image people will probably never even notice.

"CALIBAN have been a pleasure to work with. After I had the pleasure of hearing the demos while working on this project it is an honour to have done the artwork for what will be an amazing album!"

CALIBAN's eighth studio album, "I Am Nemesis", entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 21.

"I Am Nemesis" was released in North America on February 28, 2012 via Century Media Records. The CD featured guest appearances by Marcus Bischoff (HEAVEN SHALL BURN) and Mitch Lucker (SUICIDE SILENCE).

Souvenirs\\ BLACK SABBATH Partners With CONVERSE For New Footwear Collection

Converse Inc. launched the Spring 2014 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Black Sabbath sneaker collection featuring five new styles inspired by BLACK SABBATH, one of the most iconic rock bands of all time.

The designs in the collection also feature special detailing such as stitched BLACK SABBATH logos and graphic lining. This is the band's second collaboration with Converse and comes on the triumphant reunion with original vocalist, Ozzy Osbourne.

BLACK SABBATH is highly credited with creating "heavy metal". The success of their first two genre-defining albums — "Black Sabbath" and "Paranoid" — marked a paradigm shift in the world of rock. It wasn't until BLACK SABBATH upended the music scene did the term "heavy metal" enter popular vocabulary to describe the denser, more thunderous offshoot of rock over which they presided. Since debuting in 1969, BLACK SABBATH has inspired millions to unleash their creative spirit through music. One of the most iconic bands of all time will partner with one of the most iconic sneakers of all time for a truly special Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker collection.

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Black Sabbath collection will be available at select Journeys and independent stores as well as Converse retail stores and Converse.com for $60 - $70 USD.

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Black Sabbath hi-top features album cover art from BLACK SABBATH's self-titled debut album, "Black Sabbath". The iconic art includes Mapledurham Watermill in Oxfordshire, England. The stitched BLACK SABBATH tongue label features the same text font as the album cover. Suggested retail price: $60 USD

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Paranoid hi-top features canvas uppers printed with cover art from BLACK SABBATH's second studio album, "Paranoid". The stitched BLACK SABBATH tongue label features the same text font as the album cover. The shoe's liner is inspired by the original music video played on TV and filmed live in Belgium in 1970. Suggested retail price: $60 USD

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Band hi-top features a black canvas upper with the stitched band logo from BLACK SABBATH's last studio album with its original lineup, "Never Say Die!" The lining features classic black and white images of the original band members. Suggested retail price: $60 USD

The Converse CONS Chuck Taylor All Star Pro Skate Vol. 4 is available in both hi-top and oxford designs and features an embroidered logo from BLACK SABBATH's fourth studio album, "Vol. 4", on the tongue of the sneaker.

This sneaker is available exclusively at finer skate retailers. Suggested retail price: $65/$70 USD

GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS hails from New York City and has taken the world by storm since its breakout performance at a New Jersey strip club in 2007. The band consists of four dynamic women whose energies explode when hitting the stage.

Mercedes Mars, an accomplished musician from years on the New York City metal and punk scene, commands the lead solos with ease and finesse.
