Third Annual 'Bowl For Ronnie' Raises $49,000 For 'Ronnie James DIO Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund'

The third annual "Bowl For Ronnie" celebrity bowling tournament, benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, took place on Friday, October 6 at Pinz bowling center in Studio City, California. This year's event brought in $49,000 for the Dio Cancer Fund, now in its eighth year of raising awareness and much-needed funding for cancer research. It was attended by a capacity crowd of over three hundred rockers, bowling enthusiasts, DIO fans and Dio Cancer Fund supporters, with tickets selling out the day before causing the building to be filled to capacity.

Hosted again by Sirius XM's "Volume" host Eddie Trunk, rock musicians in attendance at the event were former GUNS N ROSES drummer Steven Adler, Doug Aldrich (DIO, WHITESNAKE), David Alford and Chris Hager of ROUGH CUTT, Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), Ira Black (LIZZY BORDEN), Ann Boleyn (HELLION), Jimmy Burkhard (BILLY IDOL), Alex Cane (Richie Ramone), Dino Cazares (FEAR FACTORY), Calico Cooper and Chris Latham of BEASTO BLANCO, Fred Coury (CINDERELLA), Robbie Crane and Ricky Warwick of BLACK STAR RIDERS, Jimmy D'Anda (LYNCH MOB, BULLETBOYS), Mikkey Dee (SCORPIONS, MOTÖRHEAD), Phil Demmel (MACHINE HEAD), Jeff Duncan (ARMORED SAINT, DC4), Matt Duncan, Shawn Duncan and Rowan Robertson of DC4, DIO DISCIPLES members Bjorn Englen, Joe Retta, Scott Warren and Simon Wright, Rock Feinstein (ELF, THE RODS), Marc Ferrari (KEEL, COLD SWEAT), Rita Haney, Sonia Harley, Terry Ilous (GREAT WHITE), Adam Jones (TOOL), Richie Kotzen (THE WINERY DOGS), Bob Kulick, Jordan Mancino (WOVENWAR, AS I LAY DYING), Johnny Martin (L.A. GUNS), Sean McNabb (LYNCH MOB), Tom Morello (PROPHETS OF RAGE), Dave "Chili" Moreno (PUDDLE OF MUDD), Marty O'Brien (LITA FORD), BUDDERSIDE members Colin Reid, Rich Sacco, Michael Stone and Patrick Stone, Roy Z (HALFORD), Jeff Scott Soto (SONS OF APOLLO), Mick Sweda (BULLETBOYS), Brian Tichy (WHITESNAKE), Joey Vera (ARMORED SAINT, FATES WARNING), Lonnie Vincent (BULLETBOYS), vocalist Chas West, guitarist Brent Woods (WILDSIDE), August Zadra (Dennis DeYoung), Ahmet Zappa, who attended with his sister Diva, and actor Star Fields ("Sons Of Anarchy"). The celebrity team capturing first place this year was sponsored by Round Hill Music Publishing and captained by Marc Ferrari, comprising musicians Rock Feinstein, Fred Coury and Jeff Scott Soto as well as music attorney Mark Abbatista and Tami Lester of Round Hill. Second place in the celebrity category went to the team comprising Chris Latham, Calico Cooper, Chris Hager, Phil Demmel, who brought his own clear bowling ball complete with a skull inside, Bob Kulick and Roy Z.

Last year's champion team, captained by Eddie Trunk, placed third this year. Eddie's team comprised Tom Morello, Doug Aldrich, Brent Woods, Sebastian Bach and Dan Hayes, who won the online auction for a spot on Eddie's team.

First place in the corporate team category went to Rhino Entertainment for the second year in a row. Zappa Entertainment placed second and Metal Blade Records came in third. Also for the second year in a row, the Dean Schachtel Award — named for the late Dio Cancer Fund board member — for the highest overall bowling score went to Dio Cancer Fund supporter Scott Courtright.

Musician Rock Feinstein, who is Ronnie James Dio's cousin and has now played on the winning celebrity bowling team two years in a row, came in from his home in Cortland, New York to participate. He will head up the new East Coast chapter of the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund and will be planning sister bowling and motorcycle events in 2018 to raise money for the charity. Jeff Scott Soto, who also played on the winning celebrity team for two years in a row, commented about the event: "It's an absolute honor and privilege to be invited three years in a row to honor the late great Ronnie James Dio, the incredible cause and do it surrounded by peers and fans alike! Always an incredible evening of laughs, love and bowling. I hope to be involved every year as I love and support this cause with every fiber of my being!!"

A check for $25,000 was presented to representatives of Dr. David Wong's research team from the Dental Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles where they are developing a non-invasive saliva test for early cancer detection. This brings the total presented to Dr. Wong's project by the Dio Cancer Fund to $100,000. Dio Cancer Fund medical director Dr. Sandeep Kapoor announced that the project will be publishing a new study in March which will contain an acknowledgement of the Dio Cancer Fund's support for its research. Dr. Wong believes this simple test will receive FDA approval and become available for medical use within the next two years.

"Bowl For Ronnie" attendees were treated to an evening of fun, food, raffle drawings, and, of course, the bowling competition for trophies in the name of raising funds and awareness for the Dio Cancer Fund. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the "Bowl For Ronnie" will go to further the Dio Cancer Fund's mission of cancer prevention, research and education.

Singer David Glen Eisley and guitarist Craig Goldy (RESURRECTION KINGS, ex-DIO), both formerly of GIUFFRIA, have joined forces again in EISLEY/GOLDY, a partnership which sees the two artists bring back the signature sound that launched their careers in the early '80s.

EISLEY/GOLDY's debut album, "Blood, Guts And Games", will be released on December 1 via Frontiers Music Srl. The official music video for the first single from the effort, "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter", can be seen below.

As David Glen Eisley stated around October 2014, after several years on hiatus after his 2001 solo effort: "My dear friend of many years, guitar virtuoso Craig Goldy, made a surprise visit up to my house, knocked on the door and simply stated, 'Enough of this, my friend… Time for you to get up off your ass and come back to work!' He was so adamant, I relented and agreed to join him on a small stage in the San Diego area. It all seemed to go well and the next thing I knew a year later, we were in Nottingham, England playing together again in front of a crowd. We had been discussing writing some material for a potential album during this past year. But where to take it, assuming we were to actually do one? That left a big question, but a simple answer. The BEST rock and roll label left on the planet that understood who we were and who we are today. That was Frontiers and our friends Serafino and Mario!! A deal was struck and we both are happy to say EISLEY/GOLDY will be bringing you a new record in 2017. Funny how things happen in this crazy world of rock and roll!"

Of the first single to be released from the album, Goldy says: "The song 'The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter' is a song that I know is very close to Dave's own heart... because of a very special loved one, who is still in search mode for that 'one and only,' yet still gets kicked around during that quest! For me... this song can indeed be about anyone who is searching for a special someone.... or it can also be about the internal search we all feel at times while trying to uncover what special purpose or calling in life we are on this planet for... and that search, though originally generated from the heart, can often become as treacherous as a hunter in the wild!" EISLEY/GOLDY's recording lineup also includes drummer Ron Wikso, whose resume includes THE STORM, FOREIGNER, Cher, David Lee Roth, and more. Original GIUFFRIA bassist Chuck Wright also plays on a few tracks on the album and original GIUFFRIA drummer Alan Krigger is featured in "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter" music video.

"Blood, Guts And Games" track listing:

01. The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter02. I Don't Belong Here Anymore03. Lies I Can Live With04. No More Prayers In The Night05. Love Of The Game06. Wings Of A Hurricane07. Life, 'If Only A Memory'08. Soul Of Madness09. Track Thirteen10. Believe In One Another

APOCALYPTICA Releases New Video For Cover Of METALLICA's 'Sad But True'

Finnish cello rockers APOCALYPTICA have released a new video for their cover version of the METALLICA classic "Sad But True".

Says APOCALYPTICA: "We brought a camera crew along to our Berlin show to film it all for our new video for 'Sad But True'!"

The Finnish band has spent the last few months touring in support of the twentieth-anniversary re-release of its epic debut, "Plays Metallica By Four Cellos".

Originally released in 1996, "Plays Metallica By Four Cellos" introduced APOCALYPTICA's unique take on metal with a series of cello-based METALLICA covers.

APOCALYPTICA's Eicca Toppinen said this past summer that fans will have to wait until at least the end of 2018 before they hear the follow-up to the band's 2015 album, "Shadowmaker". Toppinen said: "We [are now] focus[ing] on this, touring-wise, this ['Plays Metallica By Four Cellos'] concept," he said. "Originally, I thought, 'Hey, let's make the anniversary thing. Let's play a maximum of thirty shows.' Because, first of all, we didn't know how interesting the concept we [could] create, how it [was] gonna work out. But suddenly it turned out great — the concept is really good, and there seems to be a lot of demand; people want to see it — so we thought, 'Okay. If people want to see it, let's do it.' So now we are gonna play maybe one hundred and fifty shows of this concept."

ROB ZOMBIE Guitarist JOHN 5 Releases Cover Version Of METALLICA's 'Enter Sandman'

Former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5 has released his cover version of the METALLICA classic "Enter Sandman". The song is now available for streaming on Spotify and in the YouTube clip below.

John 5's latest studio album, "Season Of The Witch", was released in March.

His solo band THE CREATURES includes Ian Ross on bass and Rodger Carter on drums.

John has had an illustrious career collaborating with chart-topping artists such as LYNYRD SKYNYRD, Ricky Martin and Rod Stewart. John has performed on critically acclaimed world tours with MARILYN MANSON and ROB ZOMBIE. Later, John ventured into the world of film score composing for Rob Zombie's "The Lords Of Salem". In 2004 he branched out into a successful solo career and has since released eight studio albums.

Asked how his love of non-metal music works its way into ROB ZOMBIE or MARILYN MANSON, John told "Whiplash", the KLOS radio show hosted by Full Metal Jackie: "I don't think it really works its way in. I try to keep that separate. I keep it separate from ROB ZOMBIE, I kept it separate from MARILYN MANSON, but I did it for myself and when I released my first instrumental record and did all this bluegrass [playing] on it, people had no idea I could play like that. I think that's what put my name on the map a little bit because it was so different. It was like if I started right now speaking fluent Japanese or something, you'd be, like, 'Oh wow, I didn't know you could speak this different language.' You'd be surprised and that's how people were. It really was a great thing and a whole new avenue I was going to go down and people were going to go down with me. It was wonderful."

Watch EVANESCENCE Perform With Orchestra In Los Angeles

EVANESCENCE performed at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 15 in support of its fourth album, "Synthesis". Like the disc, "Synthesis Live" features a reimagining of some of EVANESCENCE's best-loved songs with the spotlight on full orchestra, electronics combined with the band and Amy Lee's virtuoso piano and voice.

Fan-filmed video footage of the entire Los Angeles concert can be seen below.

Featured songs:

00:00 Overture01:47 Never Go Back05:53 Lacrymosa09:38 The End Of The Dream15:11 My Heart Is Broken20:26 Lithium24:40 Bring Me To Life29:10 Unraveling30:54 Imaginary 35:17 Secret Door39:29 Hi-Lo44:42 Lost In Paradise49:26 Your Star 54:22 My Immortal59:00 The In Between1:01:00 Imperfection01:05:57 Speak To Me01:11:17 Good Enough01:17:30 Swimming Home

"This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars," explained Amy Lee. "I've always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation.

"This will be our first time touring with orchestra and I'm so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we've built over the years. I'm also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack."

Lee told about "Synthesis": "It's different in a way that it's still coming from the roots of what EVANESCENCE was conceived to be. It's really a beautiful project. A lot of our old songs are getting a whole new life in a way where we're getting to experience the focus being this beautiful, full orchestra. It's also a lot of electronic, cool elements — parts that have always been part of our music. It hasn't been full orchestra before — it's just been mainly strings — but just taking it to very beautiful, classical and epic and groovy place. Oh, it feels so good."

Lee also talked in more detail about the making of "Synthesis", explaining: "As far as the conception, basically, you work in demo land first and just create the arrangements of songs. I went through all the master sessions of, say, 'Bring Me To Life', and [I would] pull out all the stuff and listen to it and then chop it up and decide, 'Oh, maybe this part needs to be longer. Maybe this part at the beginning will be just strings and piano.' Just figure out what you're gonna do and build a map. And working with David Campbell, who has done all the string arrangements for EVANESCENCE for all three albums now doing full orchestra, just going back and forth with him and our producer Will and then each other, just throwing ideas in a Dropbox and basically just playing tennis back and forth for months."

AMBERIAN DAWN Releases Video For 'I'm The One'

Finnish symphonic metallers AMBERIAN DAWN have released a music video for the song "I'm The One". The track is taken from the band's eighth album, "Darkness Of Eternity", which will be released on November 10 via Napalm Records.

AMBERIAN DAWN keyboardist and mastermind Tuomas Seppälä comments: "'I'm The One' was one of the latest compositions for new album. After writing a couple of softer songs in fall 2016, I got a new 'heavy wave' and probably three latest songs I wrote were quite heavy. The song is very hectic and pushes forward like a train. There's no solo part on this song (a solo would have been quite obvious call). Instead of that, I wrote an instrumental part and an extra vocal part. Last vocal part's melody and chord pattern supporting it consists of just one really long phrase... this kind of long phrasing was typical in many classical compositions. I still haven't got rid of my roots in classical music."

Singer Päivi "Capri" Virkkunen explains the story: "'I'm The One'. This is a story about very charismatic and socially intelligent people who speak with the finest words to make other people do what they want in their quest for their own pleasure. They do not care about the consequences or how to violate the feelings of others. They only think of themselves. Unfortunately, the pressure in the group is generally enormous and all its members are behind the strongest individual hoping to be 'the chosen one.'"

"Darkness Of Eternity" track listing:

01. I'm The One02. Sky Is Falling03. Dragonflies04. Maybe05. Golden Coins06. Luna My Darling07. Abyss08. Ghostwoman09. Breathe Again10. Symphony Nr. 1, Part 2 - Darkness Of Eternity11. Anyone (bonus track)

Seppälä says: "'Darkness Of Eternity' is one of the most emotional AMBERIAN DAWN albums so far. It's got some really bombastic songs in mood of dark and symphonic melodic metal and in contrast to that also some really poppy songs too.

"For me, it's really hard to stick in one genre only and I constantly want to compose different kinds of songs!"

Tuomas adds: "The song 'Symphony Nr.1, Part 1 - The Witchcraft' told the story on the last record, 'Innuendo', before the time of 'Magic Forest'. The little girl is a healer and village elders buried her alive in a coffin. The track 'Symphony Nr.1, Part 2 - Darkness Of Eternity' on our upcoming record 'Darkness Of Eternity' tells the story of the girl lying in the coffin trying to get out. Darkness is asking her to dance the waltz of eternity. The story will continue in Part 3 and we will tell you how she became the Magic Forest's evil witch!" Regarding the "Darkness Of Eternity" recording process, Tuomas says: "We did a lot of production at legendary Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland: drum recordings, mixing by Mikko Karmila and mastering by Mika Jussila. We also used a live string section on orchestral parts and that added nice color on the sound.

"It's easy for me to say that this album is without any doubt the best sounding AMBERIAN DAWN album ever! It's a kind of monument for me and it introduces the many sides of me as composer.

"I still feel very lucky that I've got Capri [Päivi Virkkunen] on this band because she's probably the only singer capable singing all of those different styles with superior sound and feeling."

AMBERIAN DAWN released a compilation album of songs that originally appeared on their first four albums — "Circus Black" (2012), "End Of Eden" (2010), "The Clouds Of Northland Thunder" (2009) and "River Of Tuoni" (2008) — to showcase Virkkunen after the departure of Heidi Parviainen. "Re-Evolution" was made available on June 14, 2013 in Finland, distributed by Suomen Musiikki.

Listen To New CANNIBAL CORPSE Song 'Red Before Black'

"Red Before Black", the title track of the new album from Florida-based death metallers CANNIBAL CORPSE, can be streamed below. Due on November 3 via Metal Blade Records, the follow-up to 2014's "A Skeletal Domain" was recorded at Mana Recording Studios in Saint Petersburg, Florida with producer/engineer Erik Rutan (SOILENT GREEN, BELPHEGOR, HATE ETERNAL), who previously worked with CANNIBAL CORPSE on 2006's "Kill", 2009's "Evisceration Plague" and 2012's "Torture".

Many words come to mind when you hear the name CANNIBAL CORPSE, but one truly defines the soon-to-be-thirty-year death metal veterans: unstoppable. Returning with their fourteenth full-length, the monstrous "Red Before Black", serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog.

"We always try to make our music aggressive, but where an album like 'A Skeletal Domain' [2014] was definitely aggressive, it has a targeted refinement that the new album doesn't. 'Red Before Black' is as well executed as anything we've done, but it has a rawness to it that we haven't had in a long time," asserts bassist Alex Webster. "We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums," adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. "And, as Alex said, musically I think it's the most raw sound we've had — and at the same time I think it's our most focused, tightest and catchiest record."

With 2017 seeing a slew of stunning new releases from death metal's old guard — including SUFFOCATION, OBITUARY and DYING FETUS — it's been a landmark year both for the genre and its early innovators, and with "Red Before Black", CANNIBAL CORPSE stand strong alongside their peers. "We're proud to be part of a scene that has great, experienced bands that stick to their guns," affirms Webster. "Death metal is an established form of underground music that's here to stay, and the leadership bands like these have shown by staying true to the genre is no doubt part of the reason it has such longevity."

That CANNIBAL CORPSE have carved out a career spanning almost three decades is testament to their work ethic, innovative songwriting, passion and devotion to extreme music — though it still remains an astounding feat to the members, as Webster makes humbly clear.

"Who could have imagined this?" he says. "When we started, even BLACK SABBATH hadn't been around for three decades. There simply was no precedent for a lifelong career in metal, of any kind, let alone a relatively new form like death metal. We've been unbelievably lucky, and we are so grateful to our fans for making it possible." In typically grounded fashion, they continue to forge ahead, seeing no end in sight, Webster stating he likes to think they have yet to write their best record, while Mazurkiewicz outlines their goals: "I would say we just want to keep it going, try to better ourselves — and finally open for SLAYER!"

"Red Before Black" track listing:

01. Only One Will Die02. Red Before Black03. Code Of The Slashers04. Shedding My Human Skin05. Remaimed06. Firestorm Vengeance07. Heads Shoveled Off08. Corpus Delicti09. Scavenger Consuming Death10. In The Midst Of Ruin11. Destroyed Without A Trace12. Hideous Ichor

The cover artwork for the album can be found below.

This November, CANNIBAL CORPSE will kick off a USA tour in support of the upcoming disc. Support on the trek will come from POWER TRIP and GATECREEPER.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, PROPHETS OF RAGE, the supergroup featuring members of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, PUBLIC ENEMY and CYPRESS HILL, salute peaceful protest and slam gun culture in a new video for the song "Strength in Numbers". The clip touches on the ongoing debate over Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players taking a knee before games during the national anthem to protest police brutality, alternating that with clips of actors in black face and people at gun shows.

The video concludes with a shot of Mike Pence standing during the national anthem at an Indianapolis Colts game earlier this month — a game he then left in a staged photo op when players knelt during the song.

In a statement about the clip, PROPHETS OF RAGE MC Chuck D wrote: "ALMOST anything can be built or toppled with a collective force. A movement is never about an individual. On the opposition of Colin Kaepernick in today's sports world, we ask 'is it the KNEE or is it The NEGRO'?"

The Pulse Of Radio asked guitarist Tom Morello if PROPHETS experienced a lot of backlash to their political message. "Of course there is political backlash to what we're saying, and backlash to the music that we're playing," he said. "But if you have ideas that no one complains about and you're making music that no one complains about, then you probably have pretty shitty ideas and shitty music."

"Strength in Numbers" appears on PROPHETS OF RAGE's self-titled debut LP, which they issued last month.

The group, which plays songs from RAGE, PUBLIC ENEMY and CYPRESS in addition to original material, made its live debut in May 2016 in Los Angeles. They next play at the Voodoo Music Experience festival in New Orleans at the end of this month.

Video Premiere: ARCH ENEMY's 'The Race'

ARCH ENEMY's music video for the song "The Race" can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's new album, "Will To Power", which was released on September 8 via Century Media. Co-produced by guitarist Michael Amott and drummer Daniel Erlandsson, the disc was mixed and mastered by longtime collaborator and friend Jens Bogren (OPETH, AT THE GATES, DIMMU BORGIR). The album's cover artwork was designed by Alex Reisfar.

Amott commented: "This was actually the last song written for the 'Will To Power' album.

"Listening through all the material we had up to that point, we agreed that the album needed one more song that would be a relentless and fast-paced counterpoint to some of the more epic compositions we already had. We sent Alissa [White-Gluz] the music and she came up with a thought-provoking set of lyrics with an intense vocal arrangement that complemented the music perfectly.

"We've been having a blast playing this song on the current tour and we had our video director Patric Ullaeus come out to capture the mayhem at our recent show in Helsinki, Finland... Enjoy 'The Race'!"

"Will To Power" marks the second ARCH ENEMY album since the departure of longtime singer Angela Gossow and addition of White-Gluz. It will also be the first ARCH ENEMY disc to feature former NEVERMORE guitarist Jeff Loomis, who joined the band in late 2014.

METALLICA Releases June 1985 Demo Version Of 'Master Of Puppets' Title Track

A previously unreleased demo version of METALLICA's song "Master Of Puppets" can be streamed below. The track was recorded in the garage at The Carlson House in El Cerrito, California in late June 1985 and is taken from the upcoming reissue of METALLICA's seminal third album, "Master Of Puppets".

The "Master Of Puppets" reissue will arrive on November 10 via METALLICA's own Blackened Recordings. The LP has been remastered for the most advanced sound quality and will be available in various digital and physical configurations. The reissue is available for pre-order at where fans can see the full package details and track listing. Those who pre-order the standard album will receive an instant download of "Disposable Heroes (Remastered)". Those who pre-order the expanded or deluxe editions will receive an instant download of "Disposable Heroes (Remastered)" and "The Thing That Should Not Be (Live at the Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, IL - May 25th, 1986)" . The "Master Of Puppets" reissue will be available physically as a Standard LP, Standard CD, 3 CD Expanded Edition, and Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set and digitally as a Standard CD (available to stream and download), a 3 CD Expanded Edition (available for download only), and a Digital Deluxe Box Set (available for streaming and download). The Expanded Edition will include previously unreleased demos, rough mixes, interviews, live tracks, and a 28-page booklet. The Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set will include a 108-page hardcover book including never before seen photos, outtakes and previously unreleased interviews, three LPs, ten CDs, a cassette, two DVDs, a lithograph, a folder with handwritten lyrics, and a set of six buttons. Watch James Hetfield unbox the reissue below.

"Master Of Puppets" was released on February 24, 1986 and was the first album METALLICA recorded after signing a major label deal with Elektra Records.

The set only reached No. 29 on the Billboard album chart but has sold over six million copies in the U.S. since.

It is the last record to feature bassist Cliff Burton, who was killed later that year in a tour bus crash.

Several songs from the album are still staples of METALLICA's live set, including "Battery", "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" and the title track.

Many fans consider it METALLICA's finest album, a fact that the band acknowledged by playing it in its entirety on a European tour in 2006.

"Metallica: Back To The Front", the definitive story of "Master Of Puppets" and the tour that followed its release, hit bookstores and online sellers last September. A very special Collector's Edition of the book was made available two weeks earlier through and

"That album, it's interesting, because from the moment it was released, it never went away," METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett said last year while promoting the book. "It still has not and there are no signs of it going away at all."

"It was still rebellious," METALLICA frontman James Hetfield said. "Back then, it was still the four of us in a van out to conquer the world."

"I really feel that a lot of the music on 'Master Of Puppets', we pulled it out of a deep place," Hammett added. "A lot of it, it's just so emotional, from the music to the lyrics to the guitar solos to even the arrangements. It's so dramatic."

IRON MAIDEN Mascot EDDIE Invades 'Angry Birds Evolution'

Run to the hills as Rovio Entertainment, the creators of the international phenomenon "Angry Birds", pays tribute to heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN with an epic Halloween collaboration in "Angry Birds Evolution".

As one of the most recognizable figures in the world of metal, Eddie, the iconic mascot of IRON MAIDEN, will be a special playable character as "Eddie The Bird" in "Angry Birds Evolution" this Halloween season.

"Our team is filled with massive IRON MAIDEN fans and Eddie was both our first choice and a natural fit in 'Angry Birds Evolution'," said Miika Tams, VP games and product lead for "Angry Birds Evolution". "It's about time his status as a true rock icon was celebrated and we know that fans will love seeing Eddie The Bird raise hell on Bird Island!"

Players can crank up their "Angry Birds Evolution" team on October 18 during a special two-week character event for the most metal Halloween ever! Players who successfully recruit Eddie The Bird to their team during that time will be able to keep him forever.

"When you get a call from Rovio, one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world, confessing that they are MAIDEN fans and want to celebrate Halloween with Eddie, you just have to take notice," said Llexi Leon, interactive creative director at Phantom Music Management. "They have outdone themselves with this incredible tribute to MAIDEN and the opportunity to share the band’s music with their millions of players around the world. I really can't wait to play him and skittle those pigs!"

To celebrate Eddie The Bird's arrival in a big way, there will be four evolutions of the character to represent different albums from IRON MAIDEN's storied history. In addition, the Bird Island will be transformed into a Halloween-themed heavy metal oasis with a land full of hair-raising and loving tributes to Eddie, IRON MAIDEN and the heavy metal universe.

Rovio is also planning to offer fans some exclusive Eddie The Bird merchandise, made available for a limited time during this unique event.

Finally, look out for Eddie The Bird migrating to IRON MAIDEN's own "Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast" mobile RPG in 2018.

GAVIN ROSSDALE And BUSH Sign Worldwide Partnerships With BMG

Rock group BUSH and frontman Gavin Rossdale have entered into new worldwide partnerships with BMG. The agreements include a new publishing deal for Rossdale's extensive songwriting catalog and the band entering into a new recording deal to release a remastered version of latest album "Black And White Rainbows" with bonus tracks. The album was released digitally via Zuma Rock Records/BMG, with a CD to follow.

Written, recorded and produced by Rossdale, the seventeen-track expanded edition of "Black And White Rainbows" includes two new tracks, "This Is War" and "Alien Language". You can listen to the official audio below. The band, rounded out by drummer Robin Goodridge, guitarist Chris Traynor and bassist Corey Britz, have been touring extensively in support, including a North American headlining run earlier this year and this week they wrap a string of European dates.

Said Rossdale: "I'm very excited to be partnering with BMG — a very powerful label with the passion and capability to bring BUSH to a very wide audience."

Zach Katz, president, repertoire and marketing, BMG U.S., said: "Led by Gavin and his extraordinary catalog, BUSH remains one of the most successful bands in rock. We welcome them to BMG and look forward to continue building on their musical legacy."

Over the course of its career, BUSH has sold nearly twenty million records in the U.S. and Canada alone. They've compiled an amazing string of eighteen consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. Eleven of those hit the Top 5, six of which shot to No. 1, "Comedown", "Glycerine", "Machinehead", "Swallowed", "The Chemicals Between Us" and "The Sound Of Winter". As a solo artist, Rossdale hit No. 1 on iTunes with 2008's "Love Remains The Same", which sold close to two million copies alone. In 2011, BUSH re-entered the fray with "The Sea Of Memories", its first release in ten years. That album saw them return to the top of the charts in grand style, as lead single "The Sound Of Winter" made rock radio history as the first self-released song ever to hit No. 1 at Alternative Rock Radio (where it stayed for six consecutive weeks). They followed with "Man On The Run" and toured endlessly in support, playing to packed-house crowds around the world.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Settles Lawsuit With Longtime Label, Announces Greatest-Hits Collection, New Full-Length Album

According to Variety, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has resolved its dispute with its longtime record company, Prospect Park. The band and the label have announced the release of a greatest-hits album with two new songs in December, with a brand new full-length album to follow next year.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's follow-up to 2015's "Got Your Six" was delivered to Prospect Park last December, but a legal battle with the company delayed the LP's arrival.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Jason Hook said in an interview this past summer that the band's new album was "completely done. There was sixteen songs completed, sitting at Prospect Park, ready to go," he told SpazioRock. "Everybody that's heard the record so far thinks it's our best record. I'm super excited about it. I thought we fucking knocked it out of the park. There's some really cool, different things on there that are slightly different for us. There's certainly a chunk of what you would expect from FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, but there's some solid songs that are slightly outside of our regular box. But everyone thinks it's a smash."

According to Hook, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's new album finds the band once again walking the fine line between subtle experimentation and continuing with the tried-and-tested formula which has turned them into arena headliners.

"We can't really do anything differently," Hook admitted. "We are what we are. And it's an interesting challenge, because when you get to your seventh or eighth or ninth record, it comes naturally to do what we do. So we can't be fake about it, we can't fabricate something that's different — we have to just do what comes naturally. Fortunately, when we're making records, you have to come up with sixteen or so songs, so you can do a little bit of experimentation and try to break outside the box a little bit. Sometimes it doesn't work. Sometimes it's, like, 'Okay, that's way too fucking different.' But it's very easy for us to come up with the bulk of our sound in sixteen songs. And I think you'll be very delighted. It's a powerful record."

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH in April filed a new lawsuit against Prospect Park, asking a judge to release them from their contract with the label and to order the company to pay more than a million dollars in damages.

Prospect Park told TMZ at the time that the real issue was the band still hadn't delivered the album "required under the recording contract and expected by their fans."

Prospect Park sued FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH more than a year ago for breach of contract, alleging that the group wanted to rush the recording of a new album without proper creative input from the label and in order to "cash in" before the anticipated "downfall" of singer Ivan Moody, who was revealed at the time to be in rehab. In addition, Prospect Park wanted more time to promote "Got Your Six", and asked the band to provide just two new songs for a greatest-hits collection in the interim.

According to Prospect Park's original lawsuit, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's four-album contract prohibited the band from beginning to record a new effort until at least nine months have passed since the release of the previous one.

In May 2016, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH announced it had signed a new North American recording deal with the BMG-owned rock label Rise Records.

GENE SIMMONS Talks "Are You Ready" Demo From The Vault; Medley Streaming

KISS bassist / vocalist Gene Simmons and his intrepid sidekick Keith sit down to talk about the lead track from Volume 1 of The Vault. Check out the video below for the story behind "Are You Ready".

Rhino Records has uploaded a medley of sample tracks from Gene Simmons’ mammoth career retrospective The Vault; listen via the audio player below.

Celebrating 50 years in rock (1966-2016) Gene Simmons, multi-hyphenate entrepreneur, co-founder and front man of KISS, America’s number one gold record award-winning group of all time in all categories (RIAA), and one of the most recognized performers in the world, recently announced the unprecedented release of Gene Simmons: The Vault Experience in partnership with Rhino Entertainment.

Gene Simmons: The Vault Experience commemorates and celebrates Simmons’ notorious five-decade journey as a rock icon, offering fans around the world a limited-edition collectible ‘Vault’ with contents that offer a unique look into The Demon’s colourful life, including never-before-released songs, photos, stories and collectible items. Additionally, every Vault will be personally delivered to each fan by Simmons himself.

Gene Simmons: The Vault Experience begins with a personal delivery, by Simmons himself, of a numbered, limited-edition, 17” x 25” 38-pound Vault, during Simmons’ Vault World Tour set to take place January 2018 through December 2018.

Priced at $2,000 - each unique Vault includes:

* 150 never-before-released tracks written and performed by Simmons, and featuring notable rock and roll artists, including members of KISS past and present

* Packaged in a massive 12” x 12” x 6” leather-bound commemorative book containing dozens of never- before-seen images of Simmons throughout his 50-year career

* These unreleased tracks are exclusive to The Vault and will not be available in other physical or digital configurations

* Limited-edition collectibles including a Gene Simmons non-makeup action figure and an “In Gene We Trust” oversized medallion

* A one-of-a-kind, hand-selected original piece of memorabilia from Gene’s personal collection

During the one-on-one meet and greets with the delivery of the Vaults, Simmons will travel around the world, to a designated location to take photos and video with the fan and a guest, and sign autographs. In addition to the private meeting, fans will receive a Vault Pre-Pack* and join a small group of other fans for “Songs and Stories” from The Vault and a Q&A with Simmons. Within a month of purchase, fans will also receive via mail a Vault Pre-Pack featuring a USB including the first track “Are You Ready”, a signed golden ticket, exclusive t- shirt, and a laminate. Ordering by December 5th will ensure delivery of the Vault Pre-Pack by December 23rd, just in time for holiday gift giving.

“Any artist can release a boxed set, and never really thank the fans for their support,” said Simmons. “I want to celebrate my 50th anniversary in rock WITH the fans, and I have had a blast putting something really special together for them. Gene Simmons: The Vault Experience gives fans something truly unique that they can keep forever, and it gives me a chance to personally thank them for all of their support over the years.”

“What Gene and Rhino have put together with The Vault Experience is truly unprecedented. We have taken the idea of a boxed set to a completely different level,” says Mark Pinkus, President of Rhino Entertainment. “As a card-carrying member of the KISS Army from a young age, I’m honored to be working with Gene on such an exciting and innovative project. His fans are going to be absolutely blown away by The Vault Experience.”

For the ultimate fan, two additional Vault Experiences are available:

* The Executive Producers Experience - $25,000

Kicking off in New York on September 15th, the Executive Producer’s Experience will be available in cities around the world until November 2017, and is the quintessential experience for the devoted fan, plus a guest. The Executive Producer’s experience includes an initial Skype call with Simmons; a one-hour private studio preview with Simmons, offering the opportunity to listen to tracks before they are released; a distinguished Executive Producer credit on every Vault; a photo, video and autograph opportunity with Gene; one of the first 500 limited-edition numbered Vaults; and a Vault Pre-Pack.

* The Home Experience** - $50,000

Launching December 2017 in the US and in cities around the world, the Home Experience includes a personal delivery of The Vault to the fan’s home by Simmons himself; one of the first 300 limited- edition numbered Vaults; two hours with Simmons at the fan’s home (or location of their choice) for a special event with up to 25 friends and family; photos, videos and autographs; an intimate “Songs & Stories” playback session and Q&A with Gene; and a Vault Pre-Pack for all guests in attendance.

DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA - New Album Pacifisticuffs Due In December

Swedish avant-metallers Diablo Swing Orchestra have confirmed details of their upcoming new album titled Pacifisticuffs. The 13-track album will be released on December 8th via Candlelight / Spinefarm.

The eight-headed beast behind Pacifisticuffs is notoriously hard to pigeonhole; although comfortable nestled in the rock and metal worlds, they incorporate elements of jazz, prog and even classical music. With tongues firmly in cheek, they take a sideways look at the world we live in and sprinkle their musical output with a healthy dose of theatrical sparkle.  

Since the release of their last album, Pandora's Piñata, in 2012, lead vocalist Annlouice Lögdlund departed the band and has been replaced by Kristin Evegård. Evegård has wasted no time integrating into the band, and along with an all-round more democratic process, has added her lyrical and composition skills into the mix for Pacifisticuffs. 

The core style and approach of the band remains recognizable, but the band has turned their sights outwards rather than inwards. Less introspective than previous releases, Pacifisticuffs offers an expression of life's highs and lows and everything in between, all delivered with that recognisable Diablo Swing Orchestra touch of Technicolor.


"Knucklehugs (Arm Yourself With Love)"
"The Age Of Vulture Culture"
"Superhero Jagganath"
"Vision Of The Purblind"
"Lady Clandestine Chainbreaker"
"Jigsaw Hustle"
"Pulse Of The Incipient"
"Ode To The Innocent"
"Cul-De-Sac Semantics"
"Karma Bonfire"
"Climbing The Eyeball"
"Porch Of Perception"

WOLVHAMMER Ink Deal With Blood Music; Teaser Video For Upcoming Fourth Album Released

Blood Music has announced the signing of black metal/death rock act, Wolvhammer.

With the current rapid rise in quality USBM, Wolvhammer races to the forefront with their upcoming fourth album, which sees them merging the black metal tendencies of Enslaved with the mid-tempo sludge of Celtic Frost. Eschewing any frills, the band goes straight for the throat. No experimental bullshit, just the sound of rotten flesh and slow decay.

Featuring Jeff Wilson (Nachtmystium / one of the forces behind Abigail Williams “The Accuser”) and Adam Clemens (vocalist for Skeletonwitch), Wolvhammer has finally stepped into their own.

“The audio has just finished being mastered by Sorceron and is being sent in for vinyl cutting. Coming towards the top of 2018. Extremely excited to get this out there, one of those records that is just brilliant in its simplicity.”

Stay tuned for more detail, and check out a teaser below:

DAVID GILMOUR - Unboxing The Deluxe Edition Of Live At Pompeii; Video

David Gilmour has released an unboxing video for the deluxe edition of his new Live At Pompeii release (out now). Watch below:

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed Live At Pompeii in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows that took place on July 7th and 8th, 2016, part of his year-long tour in support of his #1 album, Rattle That Lock. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

David Gilmour Live At Pompeii is an audio experience on its own, while the audio-visual spectacle features lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs. Paramount, however, is the incredible music: the show includes songs from throughout David's career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including “One Of These Days”, the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show.

Both concerts also saw very special performances of “The Great Gig In The Sky” from The Dark Side Of The Moon, which David rarely plays as a solo artist. The 2-disc concert CD was produced by David Gilmour, and mixed by Andy Jackson and David Gilmour. The 148-minute concert film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder. DVD and Blu-ray versions contain an extra 7-minute documentary by Gavin Elder ‘Pompeii Then And Now’, while the Deluxe Blu-ray 4-disc box contains the 2xCD version, the 1xBlu-ray version, and a full 207 minutes of extra footage: 11 live performances and 5 documentaries, plus bonus collectables. Vinyl lovers can enjoy a deluxe 4xLP version in gatefold sleeves and a hardback slipcase, plus a 24-page photo booklet.

David Gilmour Live At Pompeii shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting on one very special occasion.

CKY Debut “Head For A Breakdown” Music Video

CKY (Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera and Matt Deis) have debuted a new music video for their single "Head For a Breakdown”. Directed by The Costa Sisters, this is the third music video we've seen from the band off their latest LP. The video was shot in and around London, UK during the band's near sell out run earlier this year.

“We were lucky enough to get a day off to explore one of the best cities on earth with our friends," says the band. "The extremely talented Costa sisters, Elena & Sofia were behind the camera. We decided to crash the Queen's Garden Party and film our video in front of the gates of Buckingham Palace.

"This was all impromptu footage mixed with the absolutely mental crowds at our sold-out nights in London. This is our tribute and thank-you to the diehard Bloody Alliance and all the new fans and friends we made in the UK this time around. Can’t wait to see you again soon. Cheers!”

The band will set out on a lengthy tour serving  as main support for HIM on their Farewell Tour this fall. CKY will also play headline dates leading up to and throughout that run, full dates can be seen below.

CKY released The Phoenix on June 16th via eOne Music. The all new LP is the first release since the band put out Carver City in 2009. The album was engineered and mixed at Rancho De La Luna, the highly regarded recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA.

THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD Debut “Hate The Living” Music Video

Through The Eyes Of The Dead have debuted a new music video for their single, "Hate The Living". Directed by veteran video director Michael Compitello, this is the first music video TTEOTD has released from their new LP.

“We are stoked to have teamed up with our good friends at MyGoodEye for the video of our first single," says guitarist Justin Longshore. "We really think the video captures the energy and vibe that you would expect from a TTEOTD live show. All footage was taken from our recent northeast trek in support of the new record. Horns up!”

The band's new LP, Disomus, is out now via Entertainment One Music (eOne) / Good Fight Music.

Disomus is the long anticipated follow up to their last LP, Skepsis released in 2010. Disomus marks the second consecutive album with vocalist Danny Rodriguez and drummer Michael Ranne (a first in the group’s impressive history) together with longtime bassist Jake Ososkie and founding guitarist and songwriting engine Justin Longshore. Disomus doubles as the studio introduction of new guitarist Steven Funderburk (also of Wretched, Lillake) and the return of original vocalist Anthony Gunnells and his successor, Nate Johnson, via strong guest appearances, bringing Through The Eyes Of The Dead full circle.

“Disomus” is the medical term describing an abnormal fetus with two bodies but one head. The album’s subject matter includes the tale of a man buried alive by a cult (“Obitual”), a dark magician’s creation of a malignant entity via sacrificial killing (“Haruspex”), underworld spirits doomed to roam the earth (“Dismal”), the Styx River of Greek myth (“Vortices In The Stygian Maelstrom”), the themes of the Alien/Prometheus film franchise (“Teras”, alternately named for an abnormal fetus with two heads and one body), and the real life tragedy and horror discovered by Rodriguez, a Chicago police officer, when called upon to check on the well being of an elderly person who lived alone (“Till Solace, She’ll Haunt”).


“Hate The Living”
“Of Mortals, We Once Were”
“The Binding Nightmare Hex”
“Vortices In The Stygian Maelstrom”
“Till Solace, She'll Haunt”

CODE To Release Under The Subgleam EP In November; “Plot Of Skinned Heavens” Track Streaming

Avantgarde black metal outfit Code are streaming a new track from their forthcoming Under The Subgleam EP, which is set for release on November 3rd via Apocalyptic Witchcraft. Listen below.

The band comment: "This track feels to us like the missing link between the first two Code albums. It combines the pitch black darkness of 'Nouveau Gloaming' and the angular attack of 'Resplendent Grotesque'. After the bleak, anaesthetic wash of our last album, Mut, we felt the need to reconnect with the bleak yet ornate darkness of our earlier releases and we feel that 'Plot Of Skinned Heavens' captures this perfectly."

Under The Subgleam EP tracklisting:

“Plot Of Skinned Heavens”
“Pollution Vigil”
“Cave Soul”

“Plot Of Skinned Heavens”:

DEEP PURPLE - Rare Video Surfaces From 1975 Sunbury Festival

The rare video below features footage from the legendary Australian Sunbury Music Festival in 1975 featuring the Deep Purple Mark 3 lineup. The event started out sunny and hot, but the wettest January days in recorded history turned the event into a mud bath.

Deep Purple recently released their first-ever animated video. The official video for "The Surprising," one of the fan favorite tracks from the internationally successful album inFinite, takes the viewer on a journey through the magical 50-year history of the band. With high attention to detail, the animated masterpiece follows the five heroes of our story – Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Roger Glover, Don Airey, and Steve Morse – through a stormy ship cruise full of allusions and sees them riding off into the sunset.

The video was directed and illustrated by Matt Rooke, alongside director Peter Rogers, who also produced the video together with Craig Hooper and Collin Games, known from the Deep Purple movie documentary From Here to inFinite.

Deep Purple and earMUSIC also announce the release of the 97-minute documentary From Here to inFinite, which is due out in November. It shows the history and origin of inFinite and provides a deep insight into the workings of the band for the first time on Blu-ray.

The Blu-ray further includes two hours of bonus material, including music videos such as "The Surprising," three previously unreleased live videos ("Time For Bedlam," "Birds Of Prey," and "Smoke On The Water"), all filmed and recorded at Hellfest 2017, as well as in-depth behind the scenes footage, movie documentary outtakes, interviews, and an audio commentary by Deep Purple themselves — all previously unreleased.
In conjunction with the release of the Blu-ray, Deep Purple and earMUSIC are also releasing The infinite Live Recorings, Pt. 1 on a special 3-disc vinyl LP, produced by Bob Ezrin. This was recorded at Hellfest 2017, the biggest metal festival in France and contains a brand new previously unreleased 80min live performance.
