Mark Slaughter and Kane Roberts rock with Sergeant Steel!

Earlier this year Austrian rockers Sergeant Steel travelled to Nashville/Tennessee once again. Top-producer Michael Wagener worked with them on an album for the second time. The group has announced on their website recently, that it’s titled „Riders Of The Worm“, and that further music legends appear on it.

Linz/Austria, Nashville/Tennessee/USA –Michael Wagener made music history. The German-American produced and engineered for Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and Skid Row among others. Sergeant Steel’s mastermind Jack Power reports two more high-quality guest contributions on the band’s website.

Mark Slaughter from melodic hard rockers Slaughter (5 million records sold worldwide) sings a duett with frontman Phil Vanderkill. Kane Roberts plays a guitar solo in his very own style. He was co-responsible for Alice Cooper’s successful comeback in the eighties.

Jack Power states emotionally: „With Mark and Kane I combine wonderful hours of my youth. Especially the debut albums of Slaughter and the Vinnie Vincent Invasion as well as Alice’s album “Raise Your Fist And Yell” and both Kane’s solo albums represent true milestones for inspiration to little Jack.“ „Riders Of The Worm“ is going to be released via the band’s own label Boyz Tyme Records by the end of November.

18.09. MY DYING BRIDE – "Feel the Misery" (Peaceville/Edel)

Mit dem acht epischen Doom Hymnen umfassenden zwölften Studio Album, geht auch die Rückkehr des Original Gitarristen Calvin Robertshaw einher.
Zu ihrem 25. Jubiläum liefern sie damit zweifellos ihre düsterste, majestätischste und tonnenschwerste Arbeit ab.
‘Feel the Misery’ wurde in den alten, heiligen Hallen der Academy Studios in Dewsbury West Yorkshire aufgenommen, in denen alle frühen My Dying Bride Klassiker produziert wurden.

Die Band sagt:

"Contained within are all the grandeur and mastery of the melancholic one would expect to find on a recording from this group of musicians. The crushing of hearts and the solemn farewells to friends and lovers twinned with the destruction of flesh and the passions of cruelty are laid neatly for the listener to devour and savour. Eight new compositions detailing the path of life through dark doors and the burdens we all must endure simply to make it to the end, My Dying Bride have returned with a foreboding new album which may enlighten, delight and consume the soul in one epic sitting."

Erhältlich als: CD,Vinyl, Special Edition 2CD/2x10” Vinyl Set in Deluxe Earbook Format mit exklusiven Songs & ausführlichem Booklet.

1. And My Father Left Forever
2. To Shiver In Empty Halls
3. A Cold New Curse
4. Feel The Misery
5. A Thorn Of Wisdom
6. I Celebrate Your Skin

8. Within A Sleeping Forest

My Dying Bride sind der Leuchtturm des Doom Metals, seit ihr Debüt Album "As The Flower Withers" 1992 auf Peaceville Records veröffentlicht wurde.
Ihre schwere Atmosphäre und ihre extrem ausgefeilten Kompositionen machten sie zu einem der legendärsten Acts des Gothic Doom/Death Genres.

Recorded at Newcastle’s First Avenue Studios, the band finished the recording prior to flying out to Brazil and the mix & mastering were completed once again by Dario Mollo in Italy. Dario was at the helm for 2013’s highly acclaimed comeback album ‘Life Sentence’.
In fact the band have also recruited the same artist Eliran Kantor for the new LP cover.

Guitarist Steve Ramsey said ‘We wanted to keep some continuity going with both the look and sound of this album. We’ve been working on the music for nearly two years now and I think people will definitely hear a progression from Life Sentence. I can’t really describe it but I promise you, these songs will speak for themselves.’

Release date is scheduled for early October.
SATAN’s previous LP ‘Life Sentence’ took the metal world by surprise two years ago, and subsequent sales led to touring on an unprecedented level for this Newcastle based outfit.
Countries visited include Canada, USA, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia,Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, France, Spain, Italy. Belgium, Holland, & Austria,including opening spots for Iron Maiden and Rush. Another extensive tour is being lined up for late Autumn.

Legendary U.S. heavy/doom metal band Pentagram reunites with Peaceville Records for its new studio album, Curious Volume, to be released 28th August. Featuring 11 classic heavy metal compositions with catchy hooks from core band members Victor Griffin, Greg Turley, and Bobby Liebling (Pete Campbell on the drums completes the band’s lineup), the album was recorded with Swedish producer Mattias Nilsson at studios located in Maryland and Virginia. Additional recording took place in Tennessee with Grammy-Award-winning producer Travis Wyrick, who also produced Pentagram’s previous album, Last Rites. The album’s cover artwork was provided courtesy of Richard Schouten. To support the new album, the band has tours planned in North America and Europe throughout 2015/2016.

Formed in the early 1970s with a debut album, Relentless, releasing in 1985, Pentagram has survived through more than four decades filled with adversity and triumph to become the legendary international act it is today, firmly stamping its name into the heavy metal history books. Although once viewed as a cult act but with a strong and dedicated global fan base, Pentagram has enjoyed a recent surge in popularity due in part to the 2011 documentary, Last Days Here, which follows the trials and tribulations of a troubled rock star, Pentagram’s lead singer Bobby Liebling. With a DVD release set for this fall on Peaceville’s label, the documentary has garnered international recognition on the film festival circuit and has won several awards, including “Best Music Documentary” at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam.

The band recently released their double DVD collection ‘All Your Sins’, featuring over 7 hours of live footage spanning a period of three decades.
