Traduza\\ CRUCIFIED BARBARA: 'To Kill A Man' Video Released

"To Kill A Man", the new video from the Swedish all-girl hard rock quartet CRUCIFIED BARBARA, can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's fourth studio album, "In The Red", which will be released on August 20 via Despotz Records.

"We and many of us feel a huge impotence and rage when we hear and read about men who systematically abuse and rape women," commented the band. "This type of crime is something that happens every day, everywhere.

"Of anger, we create music. Heavy substances and harsh riffs became the song 'To Kill A Man', a really heavy song in a double sense."

"In The Red" was recorded at Music A Matic studio in Gothenburg with producer Chips Kiesby and engineer Henryk Lip, and is the follow-up to 2012's "The Midnight Chase".

Formed in Stockholm in 1998 by bassist Ida Evileye (now-wife of MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake) and Force, CRUCIFIED BARBARA plays a fiery brand of rock 'n' roll tinged with metal and lashings of punk, pop, thrash, and whatever else dares to cross their path. Ida Evileye dominates her trusty Sandberg bass, Force rocks steady on her '76 Gibson Explorer, Coldheart belts out her unapologetic vocals while riffing all over her Gibson Gothic Flying V, and Nicki Wicked pounds on her hot pink sparkle Yamaha Maple drum kit until you're splayed across the floor with a bull's-eye knock-out punch that'll make you spit your teeth out. Now you know what happens when MOTÖRHEAD mates with THE RUNAWAYS.

Traduza\\ METALLICA Performs 'Frayed Ends Of Sanity' Live For First Time Ever; Video Available

METALLICA played the "…And Justice For All" song "Frayed Ends Of Sanity" live in its entirety for the first time earlier tonight (Wednesday, May 28) at the Sonisphere festival in Helsinki, Finland. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.

METALLICA's setlist for the Helsinki concert:

01. Battery
02. Master Of Puppets
03. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
04. Ride The Lightning
05. The Unforgiven
06. Lords Of Summer
07. ...And Justice For All
08. Sad But True
09. Fade To Black
10. Orion
11. One
12. For Whom The Bell Tolls
13. Blackened
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman

Encore:

16. The Frayed Ends Of Sanity 17. Whiskey In The Jar 18. Seek & Destroy

For years, METALLICA had teased "Frayed Ends Of Sanity" in a variety of ways throughout the set, but quickly abandoned it, veering sharply into something else.

METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo told CraveOnline.com last year that "Frayed Ends Of Sanity" was band's "the most challenging" song to learn on bass.

"We're going to have sit down and spin that one around for an hour or two," METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told the Delaware County Daily Times earlier in the month of "Frayed", which, prior to tonight, had remained the only song over nine albums that the band had never performed live in its entirety. "We carry a rehearsal room with us wherever we go. Give us an hour and we can learn any song in our catalog. We like to make the setlist real wacky and change it up as much as possible, but in 2014 the fans are picking the songs."

METALLICA recently completed a South American tour where the band played a nearly all-request set, with 17 songs chosen online by fans prior to each gig and the last slot filled by the new track "Lords Of Summer".

That song is also featured in the setlist for the band's European festival run, on which it is repeating the "by request" format.

"It certainly gives me butterflies in the stomach in a good way, and I think it should be a lot of fun for the fans," Ulrich said after announcing "Metallica By Request" last year. "This at least puts a stop to the whining about the set list because it's basically the fans that are picking it."

METALLICA's "by request" show in South America featured such non-rarities as "Master Of Puppets", "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)", "Battery", "Fade To Black", "One" and "Enter Sandman".

"To be totally honest with you, sometimes I wish they would vote on some of the really obscure songs. We love playing crazy stuff," Ulrich told Delaware County Daily Times.

METALLICA spent some time this spring working on material for the follow-up to 2008's "Death Magnetic", but the band's 10th studio album is not expected out until 2015.

UNISONIC's self-titled debut studio album was released in North America on May 22, 2012 via Eagle Rock imprint Armoury Records.

The CD — which features 11 tracks, plus a bonus live version of HELLOWEEN classic "I Want Out", only available on the domestic edition, and cover art by Martin Häusler (MEAT LOAF, GOTTHARD, HELLOWEEN, MOTÖRHEAD) — marked the first full-length musical union between Kiske and Hansen in 23 years.

UNISONIC released its debut EP, "Ignition" on January 27, 2012 via earMUSIC/Edel. The effort included the track "Unisonic" plus one demo song and a cover version of the HELLOWEEN classic "I Want Out", recorded live on October 15, 2011 at the Loud Park festival at Saitama Super Arena, a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Saitama City, Japan.

Hansen's position in GAMMA RAY is unaffected by his involvement with UNISONIC.

Premiere\\ The Last Vegas Debut "You And Me" Video

Chicago's The Last Vegas recently released their highly anticipated fifth studio album 'Sweet Salvation' and have posted the album's latest music video for the single "You And Me".

'Sweet Salvation', the follow-up to 2012's hugely successful 'Bad Decisions' and 2009's Sleaze Roxx chart topping 'Whatever Gets You Off', was released on May 12th in Europe and May 13th in North America via The ILS Group. The album was recorded at the end of 2013 in Los Angeles, California by renowned producer and engineer Roy Z.

The Last Vegas funded the recording of 'Sweet Salvation' through a successful crowdsourcing campaign at www.pledgemusic.com/projects/thelastvegas. "We have a lot more stuff for you to check out as well while you wait for the album," said the band to fans that donated towards their campaign. "A first look at our new music video for the next single "You And Me", access to see some more album artwork and a listen of a song clip from the new album. We also have some new products to get your hands on, both a limited pressing of Bad Decisions on transparent red vinyl and a limited pressing of Sweet Salvation on yellow vinyl. Both will be signed by the band and only available in the Pledge Music store for pre-order."

Having recently played alongside Guns N' Roses, Nikki Sixx, Theory Of A Deadman and Hinder, the band will be visiting UK, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Denmark, The Netherlands and Belgium through May and June in support of the new album. A video for the album's lead single, "Come With Me", was released last year and a free download of the track is being offered at www.facebook.com/thelastvegas.

CIRCLE PIT \\ THE AMITY AFFLICTION: 'Don't Lean On Me' Video Released

The official video for the song "Don't Lean On Me" from Australian metalcore masters THE AMITY AFFLICTION can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's new album. "Let The Ocean Take Me", which will be released on June 10 via Roadrunner.

Named one of 2014's "most anticipated" albums by Alternative Press, "Let The Ocean Take Me" is available now for pre-order on the iTunes Store, with all pre-orders receiving an instant download of the album's powerful first single, "Pittsburgh". In addition, the "Pittsburgh" companion video can be seen below.

Known worldwide for its incendiary live performances, THE AMITY AFFLICTION is currently blowing up stages across North America as part of BLESSTHEFALL's "The Hollow Bodies Tour". The multi-artist trek — which also features, among others, fellow Roadrunner recording group HEARTIST — continues through mid-May. Additional North American live dates will be unveiled soon.

Urgent, aggressive, and remarkably cathartic, "Let The Ocean Take Me" is THE AMITY AFFLICTION at its most vital best. Recorded by producer Will Putney (WINDS OF PLAGUE, UPON A BURNING BODY) at guitarist Troy Brady's Evergreen Studios in Brisbane, the album pushes the band's signature post-hardcore approach to new heights of richness and diversity, providing the consummate aural partner to vocalist Joel Birch's increasingly more potent lyricism. Inspired in part by a near-death experience suffered during last year's Vans Warped Tour, songs like "Don't Lean On Me" and "FML" are fueled by desperate emotion and intense anxiety but achieve extraordinary transcendence through radical honesty and raw power.

"(The album) is about really trying to find a positive in my life again," Birch says. "Writing these songs was a very cathartic process, but I'm terrified of people listening to them and reading these lyrics because they'll know exactly what I'm thinking. I'm hiding nothing."

Premiere\\ RIVAL SONS: 'Open My Eyes' Video Released

"Open My Eyes", the new video from Long Beach, California's RIVAL SONS, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's forthcoming album, "Great Western Valkyrie", which will be released on June 10 in the USA (one day earlier internationally). The CD was recorded with producer Dave Cobb at LCS Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

"Open My Eyes" is available immediately for everyone who pre-orders the album on iTunes, along with a previously released song, "Electric Man".

The iTunes version of the album also includes five exclusive bonus tracks which are available only to those who pre-order the album, and will not be available after release date.

The "Open My Eyes" song and commentary are available below.

Comments RIVAL SONS frontman Jay Buchanan: "Every time we set out to make a record, the experience ends up being some of the old and some of the new. Same studio, same town, same on-spot writing/recording process with the same guys. Actually, not the same guys; we have a new bass player in Dave Beste, and we had my buddy Ikey Owens (THE MARS VOLTA, JACK WHITE) throw down some craziness on keys while he was in town.

"I'd like to think we became a little bit more of ourselves making this record and that the selection of influences has broadened a bit. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Miley during the recording; I believe his playing on this record is his most lyrical and musical yet and that's probably a direct reflection of Beste's fresh blood in the mix.

"Speaking of Beste, whoa. Thunder from his hands all over this album.

"I think Scott really expanded his approach in these songs and you can definitely hear it in the moodier tracks, while on the hot tracks you can hear him forcing his aviary of Firebirds to drink moonshine. Dangerous.

"There are some serious house burners on 'Great Western Valkyrie' but there are also a couple where thesis dictated more subtlety from the arrangement.

"My performance? I think it's more of the same on my end, but Cobb did tell me that my finest performances were given in these sessions, but what the fuck does he know?

"They say the truth is in the taste — I'd say this record is the filthy magazine hidden in the hymnal."

The video for "Die Without Hope", the title track of the latest album from the San Diego death metal outfit CARNIFEX, can be seen below.

"Die Without Hope" sold 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 98 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on March 7 (Europe) and March 4 (North America) via Nuclear Blast, 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).

CIRCLE PIT \\ WHITECHAPEL: 'Our Endless War' Video Released

The official video for "Our Endless War", the title track of the fifth full-length album from Knoxville, Tennessee metallers WHITECHAPEL, can be seen below. The clip features livee performance footage directed by Naughty Mantis.

"Our Endless War" was issued on April 29 via Metal Blade. The CD sold around 16,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. A ruthlessly honed effort that refuses to compromise on brutality, it is also by far the band's most streamlined, atmospheric, and emotionally powerful release, pushing every aspect of their sound to the next level.

"In typical WHITECHAPEL fashion, this CD takes the sound we have been developing over the past 8 years of our career and pushes it to new levels," says guitarist Alex Wade.

"We want each record we release to sound different, and this one is no exception.

"With dashes of every record we have done so far mixed with the intensity of a new sound, this record is sure to please fans of WHITECHAPEL, old and new."

Having progressed with every record, on "Whitechapel" the band took a stylistic leap forward, garnering a whole army of new fans and greater critical respect in the process. This determination is immediately apparent. Having started to "seriously" write in February of 2013, the album was a year in the making, the band letting the writing develop organically while putting everything under a microscope, working harder on perfecting every song than they ever had before.

Famed for their three-guitar lineup, the band has always packed a crushing sonic punch, but on "Our Endless War", they take greater advantage of this than previously. Frequently, the seven-stringers build dramatic, incredibly heavy walls of thrilling noise through interweaving their parts, making for a sonic richness that pulls listeners even further into the songs. As with all of WHITECHAPEL's releases, the heaviness does not just stem from the music but Phil Bozeman's lyrics, showing characteristic diversity across the record's ten tracks.

When it came to tracking the album the band considered no one beyond Mark Lewis, who helmed "Whitechapel".

"Making the self-titled record went so well, we loved the way it came out, our label loved the way it came out, and our fans kept telling us that it was our best sounding record so it would have been stupid not to work with him again!" laughs Wade. For the artwork, the band turned again to Aaron Marsh, who supplied "Whitechapel" with its stark, arresting imagery, but again they wanted to push things to the next level.

"With the sound maturing, we felt like the artwork needed to reflect that," says Wade. "We also introduced a new logo — our old logo is classic WHITECHAPEL, and that's not something we plan on getting rid of, but as the band grows and changes we felt like we needed the logo to represent the maturity of this new WHITECHAPEL."

"Our Endless War" track listing:

01. Rise
02. Our Endless War
03. The Saw is the Law
04. Mono
05. Let Me Burn
06. Worship the Digital Age
07. How Times Have Changed
08. Psychopathy
09. Blacked Out
10. Diggs Road

Premiere\\ DOWN's 'We Knew Him Well'

DOWN's official video for the song "We Knew Him Well" can be seen below. The clip, which features the band tearing up the track in close quarters, was directed by JM Stelly and produced by Chris Trainor for LabProductions. Stelly previously worked with TO KILL A PARTY and Jason Martin while Trainor has collaborated with GWAR, PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS, Discovery's "Sons Of Guns", and is the producer of Housecore TV.

"We Knew Him Well" is taken from DOWN's new EP, "Down IV - Part Two", which is being released today (Tuesday, May 13) via Down Records/ADA Music. Tracked at Nodferatu's Lair — iconic vocalist Philip H. Anselmo's home studio — and produced by Michael Thompson, Anselmo and DOWN, the new EP is the eagerly anticipated sequel to "Down IV - Part One". The new offering from DOWN is packed with the quintet's signature gargantuan riffs, swamp blues leads, crashing drums and hypnotic howls, upholding a certain tradition that countless fans celebrate, expanding their own musical mythos as they leave its pillars intact and untouched.

In support of the upcoming record, DOWN is taking its renowned live show on the road this spring, joining BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and DEVIL YOU KNOW on a North American tour. The tour, which also includes DOWN headlining shows and festival appearances, began at Iron City in Birmingham, Alabama on May 2, and will end at Rocklahoma in Pryor, Oklahoma on May 25. The run also includes an appearance on May 24 at Emo's in Austin at the "Rock the Heart" concert, a benefit for the late Mike Scaccia's (RIGOR MORTIS, MINISTRY) "Heart Rock" foundation, with the goal of raising awareness about heart disease.

When Anselmo, Pepper Keenan, Jimmy Bower, Pat Bruders, and Bobby Landgraf retreated to Nodferatu's Lair at Anselmo's Lousiana home in the fall of 2013, things had changed a bit. For the first time in the band's storied career, Kirk Windstein wouldn't be handling guitar duties alongside Keenan. Instead, longtime "family" member, stage manager, and HONKY guitarist Landgraf took the reins.

"He was immediately at home," affirms Anselmo. "Bobby had always been that guy in case of anything. Knowing his personality, he really locked in with what we do and took it to heart. He made himself belong. Honestly, the first day he came down he contributed a very strong riff to a key song. There's that Southern element, which is imperative. I also catch a real old heavy metal vibe from this record. I can't stress this enough. He took it all on, and he did a fucking awesome job."

Keenan adds, "Even with the lineup differences, it's interesting how the songs still sound very DOWN. Bobby and I have always locked in. It's not just physically either, but mentally as well. We see eye-to-eye, and he's been watching for a long time."

"It was a big deal for me," beams Landgraf. "I drove ten hours up from Texas that first day, cracked a beer, and plugged in. We jumped right into the room, and I played this part. They all smiled. That was the moment for me. I'm a longtime fan, and I knew we were friends, but being a part of the writing and working towards something together was just incredible. As a guitar player, one of my goals was to be in a group like this. I want to make everyone proud."

The fans will undoubtedly take pride in this collection as well. Making good on DOWN's promise of a series of EPs, the second installment sees a pronounced progression amongst the individuals themselves as well.

"We wanted to back up our word as far as releasing these EPs," Anselmo goes on. "Everybody was fixated on that. This is the shortest period of time between our releases, and every one stepped it up and upped his game. Keenan, Bower, Bruders and Landgraf all contributed some excellent riffs. Having all of this fresh input makes for a different listen and a new perspective on what DOWN should and does sound like. All of that yields a unique record off the bat."

For the future, DOWN's sights are set on endless touring. Landgraf made his formal stage debut when the band headlined Anselmo's first annual Housecore Horror Film Festival in front of a packed audience of the faithful in October 2013. Now, it's just about bringing that inimitable sound everywhere possible.

"Down IV - Part Two" track listing:

01. Steeple
02. We Knew Him Well
03. Hogshead/Dogshead
04. Conjure
05. Sufferer's Years
06. Bacchanalia

Premiere\\ THE WINERY DOGS: 'I'm No Angel' Video Premiere

"I'm No Angel" , the new video from THE WINERY DOGS — the power trio featuring drummer Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ADRENALINE MOB), legendary bassist Billy Sheehan (MR. BIG, TALAS, DAVID LEE ROTH) and guitarist/vocalist Richie Kotzen (MR. BIG, POISON) — can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's self-titled debut album, which sold around 10,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released in North America on July 23, 2013 via Loud & Proud Records and in Japan on May 15, 2013 via Victor Entertainment, the CD was mixed by Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX, ADRENALINE MOB, STONE SOUR and STEEL PANTHER.

THE WINERY DOGS released two new special versions of its self-titled debut album on April 15. "The Winery Dogs Special Edition" consists of two-CDs. Disc 1 is the standard album and Disc 2 is entitled "Unleashed In Japan 2013", featuring 10 songs recorded live in Japan during the band's July 2013 tour, including "Criminal", a track previously unavailable in the U.S., along with a 16-page booklet of live photos and lyrics. A deluxe package for die-hard fans was released simultaneously. "Dog Treats: The Winery Dogs Deluxe Special Edition" is sold in a box resembling a box of dog treats, and includes the "Special Edition" collection of music, a DVD featuring four music videos and interview footage, demos from the original recording sessions, a "studio diary" written by Mike Portnoy, as well as some unique merchandise unavailable elsewhere.

"Bands like [LED] ZEPPELIN and THE WHO, THE [ROLLING] STONES, and THE BEATLES, CREAM, and [Jimi] Hendrix. I mean, I grew up with that stuff," Portnoy told Voice Of America. "And, although I've been able to pay tribute to it throughout my career with tribute bands and things like that, I've never been in an all-original band that was kind of playing classic rock power trio stuff. That's how I describe this band: just a straight-up rock band."

Regarding the songwriting process for THE WINERY DOGS' album, Portnoy said: "In all cases, the music was the very first element and from there, Richie would start melodies on top of it. Sometimes the final lyrics were there, coming up on the spot, and other times he would take the melodies and write lyrics later. There were a couple of examples of Richie having something and bringing it in. In those cases, like 'Damaged' and 'Regret', we just left them. Because in those two particular cases, the songs were great as they were."

Portnoy was full of praise for his THE WINERY DOGS bandmates, telling Voice Of America: "Billy Sheehan is my favorite bass player on earth and he has been for almost 30 years now. So to work with him and make music with him for me is an honor. And Richie is someone I have the utmost respect for as an artist. I mean, he is just so underappreciated, not only as a guitarist, but as a singer and a writer as well. I think for me, the most exciting aspect of this band is for people to discover Richie that aren't aware of what a musical genius he is."

Premiere\\ Michael Sweet featuring Electra Mustaine - "Heart Of Gold"

On the eve of Michael Sweet's new solo album 'I'm Not Your Suicide' and book 'Honestly: My Life And Stryper Revealed', the Stryper frontman has released a video for "Heart Of Gold". The cover version of the Neil Young classic features Sweet doing a duet with Dave Mustaine's daughter Electra.

With the upcoming and long-overdue solo album, Sweet is finally delivering the project fans have been patiently waiting for. Self-produced, 'I'm Not Your Suicide' includes special appearances by Tony Harnell (TNT), Kevin Max (dcTalk, Audio Adrenaline), Chris Jericho (Fozzy), Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake), Electra Mustaine (daughter of Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine) and Stryper bandmates Robert Sweet and Timothy Gaines.

In addition to Stryper, Sweet has had a successful solo career, and he served as the guitarist and co-vocalist for the legendary classic rock band Boston from 2007 to 2011.

In 2010, Sweet remarried to Lisa Champagne-Sweet, a woman he describes as, "a Godsend and the one who fits perfectly by my side." Sweet continues to record and tour with Stryper, as well as touring and recording as a solo artist.
