Premiere\\ GOTTHARD: 'Feel What I Feel' Video Released

"Feel What I Feel", the new video from veteran Swiss rockers GOTTHARD, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's new album, "BANG!", which will be released on April 7 through PIAS.

GOTTHARD has been at home touring the globe for over 20 years throughout Europe, North and South America and Asia on the back of 14 studio and live albums. They have collected multiple gold and platinum awards on the way, selling almost three million records and appearing at the biggest, most important festivals on the map of rock.

The dynamic boogie groove of the "BANG!" title track is also new ground for the band, reflecting their unbridled energy and pure confidence. Also worthy of mention is a duet with the unknown (so far) American vocalist Melody Tibbits on a ballad entitled "Maybe". As is the blues excursion the band takes in "Spread Your Wings". The final "Thank You" is a veritable epic complete with orchestra and goosebumps, flowing against radio friendly convention to a length of more than ten minutes. Written as a tribute to the departed mother of guitarist Leo Leoni, it serves as a homage to mothers everywhere.

The first single from the new album is "Feel What I Feel", a perfect demonstration of the group's talent for combining melodic vocals with strong guitar hooks. These songs are set against a background of classic GOTTHARD rock tunes like "Get Up 'N' Move On", "Jump The Gun" and "My Belief", which traditionally grace every album by the Swiss combo. All told, "BANG!" presents a compelling mix that is sure to take its rightful place in the proud legend of GOTTHARD.

Recorded and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind and GOTTHARD's own Leo Leoni at Yellow House Studios in Lugano in the Swiss canton of Tessin, "BANG!" was then mixed at the Dutch Wisseloord Studios (Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner) by Ronald Prent, who has managed to keep the GOTTHARD sound but transport them into 2014. No wonder, after all Prent has worked in the studio with bands such as the SCORPIONS, 3 DOORS DOWN, DEF LEPPARD and WITHIN TEMPTATION.

Apart from a standard jewel case, the album will be available in digipack version, with two bonus tracks and also on vinyl.

GOTTHARD's last album, "Firebirth", entered the chart Switzerland at position No. 1 — the 14th time that a GOTTHARD CD has topped the Swiss chart in the group's career so far. In addition, the album landed at No. 9 on the German Media Control chart.

"Firebirth" was released in June 2012 via Nuclear Blast/Warner Music. The CD was produced at the band's own Yellow House Studios in Lugano, Switzerland, with guitarist/songwriter Leo Leoni and Paul Lani (who has previously worked with GOTTHARD on several of their earlier albums, including "G-Spot" and "Homerun") at the helm.

"Firebirth" marked GOTTHARD's first release with singer Nic Maeder, who was born in Lausanne, Switzerland, lived in Melbourne, Australia and grew up between Switzerland and "Down Under."

GOTTHARD's previous vocalist, Steve Lee, was killed on October 5, 2010 in what has been described as a freak road accident in Nevada.

CIRCLE PIT \\ MISS MAY I: 'Gone' Video Released

"Gone", the new video from Ohio metallers MISS MAY I, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's fourth album, "Rise Of The Lion", which will be released on April 29 via Rise Records. The CD was produced by Terry Date, who has previously worked with PANTERA, DEFTONES, WHITE ZOMBIE and BRING ME THE HORIZON, among others.

MISS MAY I vocalist Levi Benton recently told Metal Hammer about the band's decision to work with Date: "We chose Terry because we’re all huge PANTERA freaks. If you ever get the chance to work with him, you take it! We've always wanted to work with him but we was always out of our price range. He's the Bentley of producers and we could only afford a Ford. [Laughs]"

Regarding the musical direction of MISS MAY I's new material, Benton said: "A lot of it could be considered leftfield for us. I won't go into detail because when you do that, people expect something that they may not particularly hear, but when we finished 'At Heart', we were all stoked and thought we'd thrown everything we had into it. After a couple of years touring and growing, we've come back to writing and have been adding different influences. There's some slower, heavier stuff, thrashier parts and no two songs sound the same. We're doing something to challenge ourselves and our listeners but please both, too."

"Rise Of The Lion" track listing:

01. Refuse To Believe
02. Lunatik
03. Gone
04. Echoes
05. You Want Me
06. Tangled Tongues
07. Hero With No Name
08. Darker Days
09. The End Of Me
10. Saints, Sinners, and Greats

"Rise Of The Lion" will be available in digital, physical CD and vinyl versions.

The worldwide release of "Rise Of The Lion" will be supported by a brief headline tour of the United States this April and May, with support from FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS. MISS MAY I will stop in eight cities, including a closer in their home state of Ohio at Rock On The Range.

LYRIC Videos \\ DEVILDRIVER: Lyric Video For Cover Of AWOLNATION's 'Sail'

The official lyric video for DEVILDRIVER's cover version of indie/electro mob AWOLNATION's hit "Sail" can be seen below. The song appears on DEVILDRIVER's latest album, "Winter Kills", which sold around 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 32 on The Billboard 200 chart. This figure is in line with the opening number of DEVILDRIVER's fifth CD, "Beast", which also shifted 11,000 units back in February 2011 to land at No. 42.

Regarding DEVILDRIVER's decision to cover "Sail", the band's lead singer, Dez Fafara, said: "Yeah. I was in the car one day and [my teenage sons] were playing the song and I absolutely connected with the lyrics 'Blame it on my ADD.' I mean, I suffered from attention deficit my whole life. And the song has the word 'sail' in it and I've been on tour for 20 years, so I liked it. I hit the guys up, they got back to me in five minutes and we're, like, 'Let's cover this.' But DEVILDRIVER likes to cover obscure tunes; we covered 'Black Soul Choir' from 16 HORSEPOWER.

"We started to realize that's more fun; covering obscure stuff is more fun. We've never really done anything that's current …

"My kids were playing it around the house and I was, like, 'Man, I really like this song.' We heard that AWOLNATION has heard it and they like the cover as well, which is really cool. When you're covering another artist's song and they like what you've done with it, that's always a pleasure."

The instrumental parts for "Winter Kills" were recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida while the vocals were laid down at Dez Fafara's home studio, with Mark Lewis (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, ALL THAT REMAINS) handling production duties. The album's cover artwork features a photograph by Dean Karr. The layout was done by Ryan Clark of Invisible Creature.

"Winter Kills" was made available in four configurations, including a deluxe digibook with CD (including two bonus tracks, "Shudder" and "Back Down To The Grave") and live DVD (featuring 45 minutes of live raw DEVILDRIVER power — no studio overdubs at all, just the band at their best — and including fan favorites "Clouds Over California" and "The Wretched"), standard CD version, digital version and, for the first time in DEVILDRIVER history, a 2LP gatefold edition.

Premiere\\ JAKE E. LEE's RED DRAGON CARTEL: 'Shout It Out' Video Released

"Shout It Out", the new 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 sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 69 on The Billboard 200 chart.

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 James "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.

"Red Dragon Cartel" track listing:

01. Deceived
02. Shout It Out
03. Feeder (with Robin Zander)
04. Fall From The Sky (Seagull)

Special guest David Coverdale adds his unique vocals to the equation, to complement Vandenberg's powerful riffs for a welcome moment of nostalgia.

Multi-talented Vandenberg — who has designed all of his album sleeves since his very first record with Teaser at the age of 22 — took care of the artwork for this record.

Mascot Label Group CEO Ed van Zijl is over the moon with signing Adrian Vandenberg's brand new band.

"Adrian is one of the most outstanding rock guitarists in the world," Ed said. "I have always followed his career and needless to say we are thrilled to finally be working with him. VANDENBERG'S MOONKINGS are a fresh and hard rocking new band that will surely make an impact on the scene."

Adrian Vandenberg rose to worldwide prominence with VANDENBERG, the melodic rock band that hit internationally with the powerful ballad "Burning Heart". Adrian solidified his status as one of the most talented rock guitarists around when he joined David Coverdale in the hard rock supergroup WHITESNAKE, co-writing many of its Billboard Hot 100-hits, like "The Deeper The Love" and "Now You're Gone", and supplying the legendary guitar solo to "Here I Go Again". After leaving WHITESNAKE, Adrian concentrated on his successful career as an artist, exhibiting his paintings in prestigious galleries all over Europe. Music however was always prevalent on his mind, so as soon as he had the opportunity to work with some incredibly talented young musicians, he started creating new music.

Premiere\\ HOUSE OF LORDS: 'Battle' Video Released

Frontiers Records will release the new HOUSE OF LORDS studio album entitled "Precious Metal" on February 21 in Europe and February 25 in North America.

The official video for the CD's opening track, "Battle", can be seen below.

"Precious Metal" is HOUSE OF LORDS' ninth studio album, following up the critically acclaimed "Big Money". This brand new release, recorded and produced by the band's singer and mastermind James Christian, again has a stellar sound, with solid and baroque songwriting mixed with unique melodic sensibilities and amazing musical skills.

Musically, "Precious Metal" shows a return to the roots of the band's sound. James Christian, as usual, sings his heart out and he sounds better than ever on these new songs. Guitarist Jimi Bell shines with heavy, but melodic riffs throughout the album, with Chris McCarville and B.J. Zampa bringing a solid and powerful rhythm foundation to the HOUSE OF LORDS sound.

In James Christian's words: "When we started to write this record, we knew after the first song that we were on to something special. The energy level was off the charts for all of us. Jimi Bell came out swinging and B.J. and Chris were just crushing it.

"Recording this album was very easy as the songs already had arrangements that were complete.

"'Precious Metal' is a testament to years of being a band that loves what they do and has so much more to offer in the years to come."

HOUSE OF LORDS debuted in 1989 with the release of the self-titled album, a monumental arena hard rock release which showcased the soaring vocals of James Christian and instrumental capabilities of the band (which featured ex-ANGEL and GIUFFRIA member Gregg Giuffria, along with such luminaries as Lanny Cordola, Chuck Wright and Ken Mary), reminiscent of such frontrunners as WHITESNAKE, DEEP PURPLE and VAN HALEN, immediately brought the band to the attention of the media and fans. After another two albums released until 2002, HOUSE OF LORDS went into hibernation until the original lineup came back together in 2000, releasing of the controversial "Power And The Myth" an album which featured a sound leaning more towards progressive hard rock with '70s rock influences.

After a short European tour, singer James Christian decided to go back to the trademark arena rock sound of HOUSE OF LORDS, putting together a new lineup. Since 2006, the band has a stable lineup featuring Jimi Bell on guitars, B.J. Zampa on drums and Chris McCarvill on bass which has been delivering impressive shows and fine releases such as "World Upside Down", "Come to My Kingdom", "Cartesian Dreams" and the recent "Big Money".

"Precious Metal" track listing:

01. Battle
02. I'm Breakin' Free
03. Epic
04. Live Every Day (Like Its The Last)
05. Permission To Die
06. Precious Metal
07. Swimmin' With The Sharks
08. Raw
09. Enemy Mine
10. Action
11. Turn Back The Tide
12. You Might Just Save My Life

Os álbuns seguintes – "No Guts.

Premiere\\ H.e.a.t - A Shot At Redemption' Official Music Video

H.e.a.t releases their new studio album 'Tearing Down The Walls' on April 11th, 2014 via earMUSIC and reveals the first song 'A Shot At Redemption' of the same titled 4-track EP - out on February 14th, 2014

"What can you say about H.E.A.T? If you don't like these energetic Swedes you must be dead inside, as this year they've shown the UK crowd how to be the most complete band on the planet." - Classic Rock UK

April 11th, 2014 sees the release of the long awaited new studio album 'Tearing Down The Walls' by Swedish rock band H.E.A.T via earMUSIC.
Once again the band decided the move into the infamous Bohus studio with Grammy award winning producer Tobias Lindell and created an explosive, fresh sound.
The first sneak peak of the album is the lead single 'A Shot At Redemption'. It confirms all that H.E.A.T showed before and more: a catchy hookline, a driven beat, the obligatory guitar solo and the raw, beyond comparison vocals of singer Erik Grönwall. 'A Shot At Redemption' will be released as part of a 4-track CD single, a 10" vinyl and download on February 14th, 2014 via earMUSIC. Both physical releases will surely become rare collector's items, being made available in strictly limited quantities. Added on top to the 'A Shot At Redemption'-EP are the previously unreleased 'Under Your Skin', a goosebumps worthy acoustic version of H.E.A.T's 'In And Out Of Trouble' and a sensual cover of one of the greatest ballads, 'She's Like The Wind'. Four songs to enjoy the energetic and explosive side of H.E.A.T and their great talent for ballads, to ease the wait for the very anticipated new studio album.

'Tearing Down The Walls' -- their brand new studio work -- is the follow-up to the successful 'Address The Nation' which was praised by media worldwide as one of the best album's in 2012 and consolidated the band's reputation as the new leading band in hard edged melodic rock.
H.E.A.T had a huge hit in Scandinavia with the song '1000 Miles' in 2009 and the band's 2nd Album, 'Freedom Rock', was nominated as one of the Top 50 albums in 2010 by Classic Rock Magazine UK. Since then, they have been touring all over the world, convincing everyone with their powerful performance.
In a moment when artists like Foreigner, Journey and Whitesnake are enjoying a second youth, when teenagers are re-discovering the melodic approach to hard rock which these artists have mastered and when proudly wearing their logo on T-shirts all of a sudden turned "hip", when classic hard rock songs are again in the single charts and among the most downloaded ... -- H.E.A.T is the hope for carrying this genre to the future. They are young, ambitious and full of energy.
H.E.A.T's music is not a revival, and it's not nostalgic. Still... it's by far the best you can have today if you love "classic rock" or "AOR"... or more simply if you think that rock music means energy, great songs, and the ambition to be on top of the world...

The band will hit the road in 2014 with more shows to be added:

07.03. Support for Scorpions -- Madrid (ESP)
24.10. Firefest -- Nottingham (UK)

H.E.A.T line-up
Erik Grönwall -- Vocals
Eric Rivers -- Guitar
Jona Tee -- Keyboards
Jimmy Jay -- Bass
Crash -- Drums

Tracklist -- A Shot At Redemption EP

2. Under Your Skin
3. In And Out Of Trouble (Acoustic)
4. She's Like The Wind

Traduza\\ GHOST's PAPA EMERITUS II 'Dresses Down' For MUSIC FEEDS In-Studio Performance

Swedish occult rockers GHOST, who toured Australia recently with the Big Day Out, dropped by the Music Feeds studio in full clergymen attire to perform "Ritual", a cut from their debut full-length album, 2010's "Opus Eponymous"; "Year Zero", a song from their second full-length album, 2013's "Infestissumam"; and a cover of Roky Erickson's classic track "If You Have Ghosts". The latter song's progressive-rock undertones are emphasized by the strong vocals of GHOST frontman Papa Emeritus II, who dressed down slightly for the occasion. Check out the footage below.

GHOST's covers EP, "If You Have Ghost", sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 87 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Outside North America (with the exception of Scandinavia), Spinefarm Records is the new releasing partner for Loma Vista on all GHOST recordings, including the new EP and previous album. Spinefarm releases are distributed through Caroline/Universal in all territories, including the U.K., where the EP was made available on November 18, 2013.

"If You Have Ghost" is available on CD, 12-inch vinyl and digitally. Those who pre-ordered the EP received an instant free download of "Secular Haze - Live".

The track listing for the effort is as follows:

01. If You Have Ghosts (ROKY ERICKSON cover)
02. I'm A Marionette (ABBA cover)
03. Crucified (ARMY OF LOVERS cover)
04. Waiting For The Night (DEPECHE MODE cover)
05. Secular Haze (live at Music Hall Of Williamsburg In Brooklyn, NY)

GHOST was forced to modify its name in the U.S. to GHOST B.C. for "legal reasons."

Premiere\\ PRETTY MAIDS: 'Nuclear Boomerang' Video Releaseed

Frontiers Records will release PRETTY MAIDS' "Louder Than Ever" — a collection of new songs and re-recorded tracks from past albums — on March 21 in Europe and March 25 in North America.

After celebrating thier 30th anniversary as a band and the release of their latest monumental album, "Motherland", the Danish melodic hard rockers are serving the fans with an album which includes eight re-recorded classic songs from the 1995-2006 era, plus four brand new songs specially written for this record and a special bonus DVD including archive footage from the '80s, brand new interviews and plenty of cool material for the fans!

"There were two main reasons for us to do this album," explains singer Ronnie Atkins. "First of all, we wanted to keep the ball in spin and release some kind of an 'in between' album before the next 'real' studio album. Then we were curious to hear how some of the older songs would sound like with the band lineup we have today and in the hands of our current producer, Jacob Hansen. The original idea was actually to do a mix of both re-recorded, re-mixed, covers and new songs, but in the end decided to cut it down to what it is. We deliberately chose not to re-record some of the Eighties and early Nineties material, since it's some kind of 'sacred,' both to ourselves as well as the fans."

The release of "Louder Than Ever" will be followed up by a three-to-four-week tour in Europe in May 2014. In addition, the band will appear at several festivals during the summer.

"Louder Than Ever" track listing:

CD:

01. Deranged (new song)
02. Playing God
03. Psycho Time Bomb Planet Earth
04. My Soul To Take (new song)
05. He Who Never Lived

Momento Dave Mustaine \\ Megadeth: shows cancelados depois de promotor se negar a pedir desculpas

O MEGADETH cancelou suas datas na Austrália depois de um promotor ter culpado a banda por remover o NEWSTED, banda de Jason Newsted, das datas dos shows que as bandas fariam paralelas ao Soundwave Festival.

Enquanto o promotor do festival, AJ Maddah, informou que a banda NEWSTED havia sido tirada do lineup a pedido do MEGADETH, um representante do Megadeth, Jim Carroccio, informou que o promotor em questão estava mentindo.

Na manhã de hoje o Megadeth cancelou as suas datas australianas com o seguinte comunicado no Facebook : "Devido a circunstâncias além do seu controle, infelizmente o MEGADETH teve de cancelar as suas datas na Austrália. A decisão do MEGADETH não tem relação com o fato de Jason Newsted tocar no Soundwave. Jason e eu nos falamos faz pouco tempo, e continuamos amigos."

Uma hora depois, em um outro post, Mustaine falou algo diferente: "Tudo o que eu pedi foi desculpas por terem me culpado por algo que eu não fiz. Eu ainda quero tocar, mas o promotor prefere não pedir desculpas e prefere dizer que eu pedi a ele que minta, o que eu não fiz. Apenas eu estou vendo como é fácil resolver isso? O [promotor australiano e do Soundwave] AJ Maddah que eu conheço é um cara sábio e cuidadoso, e eu não sei o que aconteceu com meu velho amigo. Minhas malas estão prontas, fãs da Austrália."

Premiere\\ Video Premiere: KORN's 'Spike In My Veins'

Fugitive Edward Snowden, Miley Cyrus, disgraced Toronto mayor Rob Ford and Kanye West all "star" in "Spike In My Veins", the provocative new video from KORN that's based on the second single from the band's Top 10 album, "The Paradigm Shift". Government corruption, NSA spying tactics, political scandals, the cult of celebrity and more — the video's assaultive imagery underlines and comments on how the media projects chaos into our lives.

"We are the ones taking all the pain/Falling on our faces, they don't care anyway," KORN frontman Jonathan Davis announces in the opening lines of "Spike In My Veins", currently Top 10 and rising on the rock chart. Directed by David Dinetz and his team at Culprit Creative, the video can be seen below (courtesy of RollingStone.com).

KORN's eleventh studio album, "The Paradigm Shift" (Prospect Park), sold 46,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on October 8, 2013 via Prospect Park.

"The Paradigm Shift" is the first KORN disc to feature guitarist Brian "Head" Welch since 2003's "Take A Look In The Mirror" and follows up 2011's dubstep experiment, "The Path Of Totality".

Welch told Rolling Stone that the new album has "the old KORN vibe, but with a new twist . . . The end product is a really good mix of old KORN mixed with some new elements. It's got a fresh new KORN 2013 sound."

Welch left KORN in 2005 after he converted to Christianity and got off drugs. He rejoined them for a handful of live performances in 2012 before officially becoming part of the lineup again in early 2013.

KORN will kick off its new world tour in Australia on February 20.

Premiere\\ VOLBEAT: 'Lonesome Rider' Video Released

"Lonesome Rider", the new Plastickid-directed video from Danish/American rockers VOLBEAT, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's latest album, "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", which was re-released in a special "tour edition" on November 4, 2013. The new version of the act's fifth studio album contains new bonus tracks and a live DVD. The latter features footage of the group performing at a number of major summer festivals in Europe, including the Download festival in the U.K., Rock Am Ring and Rock'n'Heim in Germany, Hellfest in France and Denmark's Roskilde Festival.

Speaking about "Lonesome Rider", VOLBEAT frontman Michael Poulsen told Ultimate-Guitar.com, "On that song, we have Sarah Blackwood as a guest singer. She's formerly known as the frontperson in CREEPSHOW, which is a Canadian rockabilly band, and now she's in a band called WALK OFF THE EARTH. We knew her from back when we wanted to bring CREEPSHOW on tour."

He added: "It may sound strange, but I'm not really into white female singers, I think they all sound the same; I'm so much more into black female singers when it comes to vocals.

"I know it sounds ridiculous, and there's going to be a lot of white female singers out there who will think I'm an idiot, but that's just the way I feel.

"But Sarah definitely has her own thing. She did a great job and her signing sounds beautiful on the record."

"Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies" debuted at No. 1 in several countries when it arrived in April 2012, with the disc entering the Billboard album chart at No. 9.

"Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies" has sold 180,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Premiere\\ FATAL SMILE: 'Like A Rockstar' Video Released

"Like A Rockstar", the new video from Swedish hard rockers FATAL SMILE, can be seen below. The clip was directed by NOCTURNAL RITES drummer Owe Lingvall of Dreamday Media (formerly Village Road Film), who has previously worked with MESHUGGAH, KAMELOT and THE RASMUS, among others. The song, which was released digitally last November, is taken from FATAL SMILE's fifth album, "White Trash Heroes", due on April 7 via FS Records/GMR Music Group.

"We really think this is going to be our best album so far," the group said in a statement. "Expect the hardest, in-your-face FATAL SMILE album yet, recorded with huge balls and heavy sounds from hell!"

FATAL SMILE's last CD, "21st Century Freaks", was released in North America in early 2013 via Spectra Records. The effort, which was made available in Europe in May 2012 via FS Records/GMR Music Group, was produced by Mr. Y, engineered/recorded by Philty and mixed by the two of them together. The mastering duties were handled by Mats "Limpan" Lindfors at Cutting Room Studios.

Traduza\\ METALLICA, ROB HALFORD, MOTÖRHEAD, SCORPIONS Featured On RONNIE JAMES DIO Tribute Album

Ronnie James Dio is one of the most beloved figures in rock history. His gifts, both as a singer and songwriter, are instantly recognizable, whether he was with RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL, or leading DIO. Sadly, Dio lost his battle with stomach cancer in 2010 but his towering voice and legacy live on.

To celebrate one of rock's most powerful voices, an all-star group of his friends and fans recorded 13 of their favorite tracks for a tribute album that will raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund. Produced by his longtime manager and wife Wendy Dio, the album includes contributions by such metal heavyweights as METALLICA, MOTÖRHEAD, SCORPIONS, ANTHRAX, and Rob Halford, as well as appearances by many of the musicians who performed with Dio over the years.

"This Is Your Life" will be available from Rhino on April 1. A digital version will also be available.

Although the songs featured on the album touch on the different eras of Dio's career, several spotlight his time with RAINBOW, including METALLICA's epic, nine-minute "Ronnie Rising Medley", which combines the RAINBOW songs "A Light In The Black", "Tarot Woman", "Stargazer" and "Kill The King". SCORPIONS add a scorching take on "Temple Of The King" while MOTÖRHEAD is joined by Biff Byford from SAXON on "Starstruck". Rob Halford teams with frequent Dio collaborators Vinny Appice, Doug Aldrich, Jeff Pilson, and Scott Warren for "Man On The Silver Mountain". The final lineup of Dio's solo band — Simon Wright, Craig Goldy, Rudy Sarzo and Scott Warren — are joined by Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) for "Catch The Rainbow", a track from RAINBOW's 1975 debut.

ANTHRAX and ADRENALINE MOB honor Dio's memorable stint with BLACK SABBATH with their takes on "Neon Knights" and "The Mob Rules", respectively, as does a group, led by Oni Logan on vocals along with Jimmy Bain, Rowan Robertson, and Brian Tichy, which performs "I" from "Dehumanizer".

"This Is Your Life" also includes songs from Dio's back-to-back platinum albums "Holy Diver" (1983) and "The Last In Line" (1984), with DORO's take on "Egypt (The Chains Are On)", HALESTORM tackling "Straight Through The Heart", Corey Taylor (STONE SOUR, SLIPKNOT) covering the classic "Rainbow In The Dark" and TENACIOUS D (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) putting their signature spin on "The Last In Line". KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's cover of "Holy Diver", a hit in its own right when released in 2006, is also included here.

Fittingly, Ronnie James Dio provides the finale (and the album's title) with his moving performance of "This Is Your Life". Originally released on "Angry Machines" (1996), the song's lyrics explore mortality and are backed by a stark and beautiful arrangement that features Dio accompanied only by his longtime keyboardist Scott Warren on piano. The song serves as a poignant reminder that we will never hear a voice like Dio's again.

"I'm letting them pick what songs they wanna do in the way they wanna do it," Wendy told Artisan News in 2011.

"We reached out to Wendy Dio about wanting to be a part of the Dio tribute that's getting put together," METALLICA singer James Hetfield told U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine. "We're very honored to be a part of that, and to be a part of a celebration of Ronnie's life and his great contribution, man."

In an interview with Guitar International, former ANTHRAX guitarist Rob Caggiano stated that the band's cover version of "Neon Knights" "came out pretty smoking."

The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, co-founded by Wendy Dio, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable fund dedicated to supporting cancer-prevention research, raising awareness and educating the public about the vital importance of early detection and prevention when dealing with this deadly disease.

01. "Neon Knights" - ANTHRAX *
02. "The Last In Line" - TENACIOUS D *

The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund is a privately funded 501(c)(3) charity organization which has already raised more than $600,000 in its short history. Monies raised to date have been committed to the cancer research work of the T.J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research and the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life.

Premiere\\ Bonafide's "Rock 'N' Roll Skal" Video Features Several Guest Appearances

Bonafide have released a star-studded video fo their latest single "Rock 'N' Roll Skal". Taken from the Swedish band's latest release 'Bombo', released in September of 2013 via Off Yer Rocka, the video features guest appearances by Airbourne's Joel O'Keeffe, The Georgia Satellites' Dan Baird, The Scams, Thundermother, '77, Ryan Roxie, Chips K, Fatal Smile, Grant Foster and many more.

Bonafide are currently working on a special EP for UK fans and friends that will contain one brand new track and two old ones re-recorded. The EP will only be sold on the road during the group's March tour of the UK. For the first time in the history of the band frontman Pontus Snibb will not be singing lead vocals on the new song.

Since their formation in Malmo, Sweden late 2006, Bonafide has grown to be one of Sweden's most popular and hardest working rock bands. Singer and frontman Pontus Snibb got the band together in an urge to play loud and raunchy hard rock true to it's roots in the electric blues and early R'N'B.

Bonafide spends most of their time on the road throughout Europe, constantly building an ever growing fan base all over the continent. Their two latest albums have both secured the number one slot in the Swedish rock charts, and besides playing clubs on their own, they have supported bands such as Deep Purple, Europe and Status Quo to name a few.

The band's last two studio album's, 'Ultimate Rebel' and 'Something's Dripping', both reached the 'Sleaze Roxx Top 10' year end lists and two of their singles, "Doing The Pretty" and "Fill Your Head With Rock", were among the top tracks in Classic Rock Magazine's 'Top Tracks of the Year' in both 2011 and 2012.

Rocknews\\ Paradise Lost no Brasil 2014: ingressos para São Paulo e Curitiba

A Produtora Dark Dimensions apresenta a tour sul-americana da banda Paradise Lost.

Com datas confirmadas em abril pela América do Sul e Brasil, a banda Paradise Lost volta com seu estilo único para 5 apresentações da sua “Tragic Illusion Tour 2014”. A banda se apresenta no dia 8 de abril no México, dia 10 no Chile, dia 11 em Curitiba, dia 12 em São Paulo e dia 13 na Argentina.

A banda Paradise Lost foi formado em 1988 na Inglaterra e seu primeiro debut álbum foi lançado em 1990 com grandes influências de Death Metal. Já com o seu segundo álbum “Gothic”, a banda ganha reconhecimento mundial e agrada a crítica e fãs com passagens orquestradas, guitarras com afinação grave, aliado com vocais femininos tétricos ao fundo e solos obscuros.

Ao longo da década de 90 a banda segue no seu estilo Doom/Gothic Metal até o álbum “Host” que foi considerado fora do estilo da banda e desagradando alguns fãs pela quase ausência de guitarras e peso em suas composições. Em 2002 a banda lança "Symbol of Life" que seria o retorno ao seu estilo mais obscuro com guitarras pesadas. Este álbum segue o estilo consagrado da banda apresentado em álbuns como Gothic (1991), Icon (1993) e Draconian Times (1995).

Hoje a banda segue na divulgação do álbum “Tragic Idol” de 2012 e da coletânea “Tragic Illusion 25″, que foi lançado em 2013 para comemoração dos 25 anos de carreira da banda. O lançamento conta com algumas raridades e a faixa ”The Last Fallen Saviour” , originalmente lançada em um álbum da revista Decibel.

METALLICA no Brasil \\ Show em São Paulo terá abertura do Raven

Para muitos uma surpresa, já que a maioria apostava que a abertura do Metallica no Estádio do Morumbi, seria feita por bandas como Sepultura, Project 46, entre outros.

Na verdade, surgiu de um pedido do "big boss", Lars Ulrich, que no papel de grande fã e amigo do trio inglês, achou que seria perfeito reeditar essa dobradinha (em 1983, no lançamento de "Kill Em All", eles abriram a tour do Raven, que lançava "All For One", na clássica "Kill Em All For One"...). Como a banda estaria por aqui no mesmo período, fazendo outras duas datas (Curitiba/PR, dia 21/03, e Limeira/SP, dia 23/03), ficou fácil para o manager da banda na América do Sul, Rodrigo Scelza, intermediar esse encontro.

O Raven segue comemorando os 30 anos do clássico, "All For One", onde eles o tocam na integra.

Quem já viu algum show dos caras, sabe que trata-se de uma aula das mais viscerais de heavy metal, ou seja, um nome que agrega, e muito!

O Raven foi formado em 1974, em Newcastle (Inglaterra), e anos mais tarde, se mudou para os EUA. O grupo, que é um dos grandes nomes da NWOBHM, é formado pelos irmãos, e fundadores, John Gallagher (vocal e baixo) e Mark Gallagher (guitarra), além do baterista Joe Hasselvander, que está na banda desde 1988.

Eles possuem 12 álbuns de estúdio, 2 álbuns ao vivo, 4 DVDs, além de inúmeros singles. Seu trabalho mais recente é o DVD, "Rock Until You Drop - A Long Days Journey", lançado em 2013.

Ou seja, um encontro histórico para os amantes do heavy metal.

Rocknews\\ Mötley Crüe: "a banda não está se separando", diz Vince Neil

Em meio a todo o alvoroço em torno do anúncio da última turnê do MÖTLEY CRÜE, parece que um fato importante foi deixado de lado: a banda não está realmente se separando.

Os primeiros indícios surgiram quando o vocalista Vince Neil e o baixista Nikki Sixx fizeram uma grande conferência de despedida nesta semana. Quando perguntados se o grupo iria se reunir para tocar, se caso fossem introduzidos no Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a porta sempre estará aberta. Neil disse que teriam que discutir isso, e Sixx explicou que o que eles haviam prometido era apenas "deixar de fazer turnês". A idéia seria que, eventos especiais como o Hall of Fame ainda poderiam ser uma possibilidade.

Agora Neil esclareceu esta afirmação com mais ênfase, e com muito mais interesse, indicando que eles ainda irão trabalhar juntos no estúdio. Em uma entrevista com a KDKB em Phoenix, ele disse, "É o seguinte. O Mötley Crüe não está se separando. Ainda iremos fazer músicas. Ainda vamos vender nosso merchandise e coisas assim, as coisas do Mötley Crüe". Apesar de explicar que eles não irão mais lançar álbuns completos, ele sugere: "Nós provavelmente vamos fazer música - músicas para as coisas certas. O Mötley Crüe ainda estará por aí, nós só não vamos mais fazer turnês. Na verdade é isso".

Quando perguntado novamente se o grupo tocaria em uma possível indução no Hall of Fame, Neil previu: "Provavelmente sim, mas seria só isso. Quero dizer, não existirá mais turnês".
