  • METAL CHURCH - Generation Nothing (CD 2013)

    Metal Church "Generation Nothing" marks the bands 10th full length studio release and boasts the return to the band's classic metal sound, says founding member Kurdt Vanderhoof, "It has elements of both the first album and the "The Dark", but still embraces the new sound of the band without chasing the past."

    Born out of the West Coast Metal scene in the 80's, Metal Church quickly became one of the standout talents of their genre. The band's first release simply entitled "Metal Church" postured the band as one of the pioneers of the thrash/metal scene, while their sophomore release "The Dark” was championed as one of the premier metal releases of the 80's.

    Now with the current band’s line up, Kurdt Vanderhoof (guitar), Ronny Munroe (vox), Jeff Plate (drums), Rick Van Zandt (guitar) and Steve Unger on bass, "Generation Nothing" combines the best elements of the band’s early roots with modern day lyrical content and a revived hunger that delivers an electric assault of anthemic & epic metal songs! Videos for "Generation Nothing" and "Dead City" are currently in the post production stage and a world tour is in the works for 2014. Official release date for "Generation Nothing" is scheduled for October 22, 2013.

  • AC ANGRY reveal cover artwork & tracklist of “Black Denim”!

    AC ANGRY: Riding The Booze Horse
    Pent-up anger channelled into a feisty Rock ‘n’ Roll attitude. This is what AC ANGRY stands for. Metal Hammer Germany described their sound as «comparable to early Wonderfools, coupled with desert riff grooves and a touch of late Turbonegro». Their roots lie clearly in the classic Rock ’n’ Metal of the 80‘s, in groups like Motörhead or Zodiac Mindwarp And The Love Reaction and they succeed in including their influences from the last 15 years in an exciting way, as bands like Danko Jones and Turbonegro took over. With this spellbinding mixture they set themselves apart from the rampant 70‘s Vintage Rock Revival and go their own way.
    Under the old name Taletellers the four-piece already made a name for themselves in the world-wide metal scene with the albums ”Detonator“ and ”Radicalizer“. In 2009 they went on a European tour with Grave Digger and Alestorm and they supported such notables as Molly Hatchet, Sacred Reich, Uriah Heep or Astral Doors. Along with it the second album ”Radicalizer“ earned a Top 40 chart position in the US College Radio Charts. After a short break the band decided to change the name to something more suitable for their straight heavy Rock ‘n’ Roll – AC ANGRY – and since last year the musicians surrounding the charismatic singer Alan Costa have been hitting the gas again big time! Highly acclaimed shows as support for Danish rockers D-A-D and Ozzy‘s former sidekick Zakk Wylde and his Black Label Society and most of all the tour with Warrior Soul in November 2012, which led them through Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands, were celebrated by fans and press alike.
    On October 25th 2013 AC ANGRY’s debut album “Black Denim“ – produced by Phil Hillen (Powerwolf, Parachutes, The Vision Bleak, Vendetta …) at SU2 Studio – will finally be released through the German label Dust On The Tracks Records. Iconic illustrator Jan Meininghaus (U.D.O., Bolt Thrower, Brainstorm …) is responsible for the perfectly fitting artwork. AC ANGRY are demonstrating with a total of ten songs how a dirty Rock ’n’ Roll album is supposed to sound! Catchy tunes like the pounding opener “Booze Horse“, the intriguing half-ballad “It‘s Good To Be Bad“ or the fat speed metal riffs-driven “Rock ’n’ Roller Roller Rolla!“ are evidence that singer and guitarist Alan Costa, his congenial lead guitarist Stefan Kuhn, as well as the tight rhythm section, consisting of bassist Dennis Kirsch and drummer Sascha Waack will truly stir up the international scene! The live shows have already started in late April when AC ANGRY were hitting the road for a mini-tour with guitar virtuoso Michael Schenker (MSG) before going on a three-week European tour in June as support act for the Hard ‘n‘ Heavy legend Saxon and several concerts with Canadian cult Metal band Anvil in August. In autumn AC ANGRY have been confirmed for some shows with Ohrenfeindt and further tour dates will soon follow.
    What the press says about AC ANGRY:
    Rock Hard (#314): Another few words on the supporting act: They’ve made a good catch with AC ANGRY. With their excellent mix of Power Rock, Heavy Metal and Aussie-Rock ’n’ Roll  the upcoming quartet arrives properly.
    Medazzarock.ch (Juni 2013): The boys were the perfect opening act that understood how to get people involved and brought at operating temperature. Rock ‘n’ Roll mood in the best way.
    Musikreviews.de (Januar 2013): Probably one of the five best bands in Germany, when it comes to adding sound to greasy leather jackets – you have to check this out!

  • TRIBUNE Set To Release Author Inspired Album 'Tales'


    L-R | Ryan O’Shea – Bass | Jason Brown – Drums | Bryan Baker – Vocals | Terry Anderson – Guitar | Shawn Culley – Guitar  (Photo Credit: Matt Neuman - Phrozen Photography)

       Over the past nine years, Vancouver, BC’s TRIBUNE has been progressively combining its myriad of influences into a genre-shattering whole and etching away at a sound all its own. Now, the band’s efforts have culminated in their third full-length record, Tales set for release October 29th via their indie label Corpse Corrosion Music, which is available for pre-order at the following link.

    Album Pre-Order: http://tribune.bandcamp.com/

    The nine-track concept album has been inspired by the writings of some of the world’s most renowned authors, including H.P. Lovecraft, H.G. Wells, Homer among many others, but the result is strictly TRIBUNE.

    Exploring a more melodic and progressive sound than ever before, but still staying true to the group’s extreme aggression roots, Tales, the follow-up to 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts, demonstrates TRIBUNE’s brawn and brains with a collusion of extremity and accessibility.

    As the band’s appetite for more extreme metal increased, bands like Carcass, Death and At The Gates began bleeding into their melting pot of influences, resulting in a fresh take on their fine metal sound, which can be heard echoing in the depths of TRIBUNE’s Tales.

    Tribune is now streaming the first single from the album 'From Funeral To Funeral' at the following links:

    “If prog-infused death/thrash sounds like your thing then wrap this around your ears and don’t stop…” – MetalAsFuck.net

    “Tribune prove themselves an imaginative, intelligent and technically proficient band on ‘The Elder Lore – The Dark Arts’; if you’re a Metalhead, you should definitely be listening to this one.” – Confront Magazine  9/10

    “The album is a big snack of metal and I like it.” – MetalGlory.de

    “the nine minute beast of an ending ‘The World’s Greatest Cynic’, which is like a greatest hits of Tribune’s capabilities in one swoop. ”- Metal-Rules.com

    “check out the relentless staccato machine-gun groove of ‘The Succubus’” – Bravewords.com

    “In 25 words or less: ‘Prog, Metal, Thrash, Rock, Doom, take your pick, you’ve got it all here…” – MayTheRockBeWithYou.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is a riff-driven, groovy thrash album with a bit of a melodic death metal/metalcore appeal. The guitars are sharp and bouncy and there’s a good amount of grooves and solos.” – TeethofTheDivine.com

    “‘The Warrior Mentality,’ my favorite on the album, shows influences from Black Sabbath and Dream Theater to Iron Maiden and Lamb of God.  It’s a very cool, riff oriented song! …The musicianship is extremely skilled-these guys are tight.  Production on the album is also a highlight.  Very well done.  These guys kick ass and will be a force to be reckoned with in the future. “ 4/5 – SkullsnBones.com 

    “The band has unleashed a powerful new effort entitledElder Lore / The Dark Arts, and it’s sure to gain Tribune a monstrous amount of accolades from all over the globe.” – HighWireDaze.com

    “On their second full-length release, “Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts” the band Tribune (who hail from Burnaby, BC.) decided to break into my house, steal all of my heavy metal collection and then craft an album that explored all the various bands I listen to. How else does one explain everything this five piece band throws out to the listener? Classic heavy metal? Check. Thrash? Check. Melodic hardcore? Check. Progressive metal? Check. Death metal? Check. Doom? Check. It is all here and then some.” – Heavy Metal Time Machine

    “Tribune is a rarity in 2012: a band whose members have molten metal, and not much else, coursing through their veins. Forget throwing hip-hop, rap-rock, screamo, punk, or hardcore-electro free jazz into the mix: Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is aimed at those who pine for a less complicated time, when Headbangers Ball was must-see TV, and Studebakers on Kingsway was doing booming business.

    Tribune not only acquits itself admirably here, but also implies that it knows the metal landscape has shifted since Iron Maiden and Judas Priest were something more than glorified nostalgia acts. What you get is eight songs that suggest a well-stocked iPod on Shuffle—assuming that said iPod is loaded with metal, metal, and more metal, none of it hairspray-scented.” – The Georgia Straight (Vancouver, BC)

    “The third release from this Burnaby “thrash/prog rock/metal band” pretty much meets its description. From the growls and frog ribbits that open “It Came From the Swamps,” there is equal parts straight on metal boogie only to break into hyper speed shriek breaks unexpectedly and about three bands in one by song’s end.  The group appears to hit its stride most effectively on the full-on thrash of  ”The Succubus,” with some particularly tasty vocals. Perhaps my fave track is “The Warrior Mentality” for its pulsing build to tortured screams and then an almost Alice In Chains-ish turn later on. If you favour heavy guitar lead workouts, this isn’t your cuppa. These guys get to the point and drive it home with maximum force and minimum flash.  And they really sound like they know their strengths and play to them.” - The Province (Vancouver, BC)

    “This is a top quality release;… their arrangements are verging into Mastodon’s playground with a fresher, more honest delivery clearly audible and some of the arrangements are of a quality that I would expect from say someone like Tool, and they are damn perfectionists, hence, Tribune have massive potential. ” – Brutalism.com

    “..the best thing about Elder Lore The Dark Arts is the music…traditional foundation and some nice fret work, this album is an interesting listen….clever and appealing …one album to check out.” – DangerDog.com

    Great sounding melodic death/thrash metal band that combines both classic and modern metal to create a new sound and if you are looking for a band that combines a variety of metal genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE “It Came From The Swamps” “The Succubus” and “We, The Black”.” – Variety of Death Zine

    “A force to be reckoned with, metal flows through the veins of Tribune one of the best thrasher bands to come out of Canada.” – DJ Metalgod - Mental Metal Show

    “An interesting hybrid of thrash and progressive melodic post / rock…. “Elder Lore / The Dark Arts” is a versatile full-length” – StereoInvaders.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts  has all the necessary ingredients of an accessible and unique Metal release for 2012, and Tribune are clearly ready to capitalize on their assets.” Vile-Views.com

    “Elder Lore/The Dark Arts has all of the great things you need to see in a band, the musicianship, the chemistry between the band members, and the great music. It’s a really solid record…fans of un-signable metal bands will have great stuff on their hands, from the short heavy stuff of “The Succubus” to the long epic proggy sound of “The World’s Greatest Cynic.”" – Jorzine.com

    ““Elder Lore/The Dark” is an awesome album…The album’s highlight is the nine minutes long “The World’s Greatest Cynic” with the awesome collection of riffs, melodies and expressional vocals.” – MetalKaoz.com

    “‘Man on the Outside’ is a great example of what the band is capable of … The double axe work of Anderson and Culley really shine all over and vocalist Bryan Baker is easily one of the most talented and diverse singers I’ve ever heard.” – MetalBlast.net

    unbeing - chuck norris (official music video)

    Rising out of Montreal’s bubbling metal underground, it can be said that Unbeing have been through it all. Starting out as a three-piece, members came and went, two demos were released to an overwhelmingly positive response, the band won Metal Académie 2 – a two-month-long competition where the band impressed both the audience and esteemed metal judges such as Kataklysm to take home top honors – then decided to shake things up again. Taking the judges’ advice to heart, Unbeing opted to no longer continue sacrificing their creative liberties, removing vocals all-together to finally discovered its true nature in the form of a five-piece ProgEpic InstruMetal band.

    But alas, seven years after the birthing cries of Unbeing tore holes in the fabric of space and time, individually and as a whole, they have overcome hardships, laughed in the face of danger and stomped on the charred corpse of impossibility. In 2011, the band released its debut full-length album before solidifying its name in the metal community as a five-piece outfit.

    In additional news, the band will be hosting a launch show with The Heavy Metal Music Association of CanadaPop MontrealDungeonworks Productions and label BLK COQ Music on September 27th at Foufounes Electriques. The band will be supported by brass metal band Fallstaf, the industrial sounds of Ogenix, the aggressive tendencies of Burning The Oppressor, and fellow prog influenced band Our Souls Evolve.

  • MAXXXWELL CARLISLE release Full Metal Thunder EP

    Straight out of Los Angeles, California comes hot-shot shred guitarist and competitive bodybuilder Maxxxwell Carlisle.

    Over the past several years, he has taken high energy virtuoso guitar pyrotechnics to a whole new level with the release of 4 punishing solo albums and countless live shows up and down the West Coast.

    His street credibility has been further cemented with his time as a touring guitarist in Deathriders, the thrash band led by original Anthrax vocalist Neil Turbin.

    His latest 2013 EP "Full Metal Thunder" featuring new vocalist Michael Yancy is full of US arena metal anthems that make you want to play air guitar with reckless abandon and pump your fist high into the air.

    Showcasing the musical spirit of heavy weight legendary bands such as Saxon, Riot,Loudness, and Impellitteri, the songs take you back to a time when Heavy Metal ruled the airwaves.

    The EP includes guest guitar solos by Nita Strauss (The Iron Maidens) and Rick Renstrom (Rob Rock, Mistheria).

    His latest achievement in the quest for world domination has seen him recently join the new line-up of legendary Los Angeles, California based heavy metal band Hellion as they find themselves recording an album of new material with legendary producer Ken Scott (Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck, The Rolling Stones, etc.) and gearing up for a follow-up tour.

    2013 continues to find him shredding away at a furious pace with his incendiary playing being featured on the upcoming Michael Angelo Batio CD, "Intermezzo".

    Maxxxwell Carlisle has already worked with many top musicians including Michael Angelo Batio (Nitro), Tina Guo (Solo artist and Cirque du Soleil / Michael Jackson Tour), Ethan Brosh (Angels of Babylon), Neil Turbin (Anthrax), Nita Strauss (The Iron Maidens and Femme Fatale), Simon Wright (Dio, AC/DC), Bjorn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony Macalpine) and many more.

    With influences ranging from Chris Impellitteri, Akira Takasaki, Tony Macalpine, Michael Angelo Batio, Yngwie Malmsteen, Luca Turilli, Paul Gilbert, Rusty Cooleyand Jason Becker, his sound is a blend of neoclassical and straight over-the-top balls-to-the-wall shred guitar.

    "Full Metal Thunder" EP track Listing:

    1. Full Metal Thunder
    2. The Power of Metal Compels Me (featuring Nita Strauss)
    3. The Call of the Metal
    4. Marching with the Dragons
    5. Time Crisis (featuring Rick Renstrom)
