BUTCHER BABIES Cover THE OSMONDS, ZZ TOP On 'Uncovered' EP

Taking a page from heroes METALLICA and GUNS N' ROSES, Los Angeles metallers BUTCHER BABIES have recorded an EP of cover tunes that will surely please fans of the band, as well as fans of the artists that performed them originally. Titled "Uncovered", this EP will be released on September 30 in North America (October 6 in Europe) and features the following five tracks:

01. Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers 02. They're Coming To Take Me Away 03. Don't Give A Fuck 04. Crazy Horses 05. Pussy Whipped BUTCHER BABIES' Carla Harvey (vocals) comments: "It was a blast recording songs that we have been fans of our entire lives and putting our spin on them.

"We all chose a song that had some significance to us. My pick was 'They're Coming To Take Me Away' by NAPOLEAN XIV, because I have a vivid memory of my stepdad, who I considered completely insane, playing it over and over again on his car stereo when I was a pre-teen. The song is about being taken away to a mental institution. I can still see him tapping his fingers on his steering wheel to the beat..."

BUTCHER BABIES' Heidi Shepherd (vocals) adds: "As an eight or nine-year-old little girl, I used to rummage through my parents' albums and 8-tracks looking for some cool music. In hopes that my parents had at least a little bit of good taste, I would play every single song looking for something that I could latch on to. That's when I came across 'Crazy Horses' by THE OSMONDS; it was the heaviest song I had heard at that age. I would play that song over and over and over again, I was addicted. To this date, it's still one of my favorite songs and reminds me so much of growing up in Provo, Utah."

In regards to BUTCHER BABIES' cover of THE OSMONDS' "Crazy Horses", Donny Osmond comments: "When we released 'Crazy Horses", we were pushing against what THE OSMONDS were known for, but it became a greatest hit. The BUTCHER BABIES have reinvented this song in a creative and innovative way — and that's what music is about. Now...What if I had recorded 'Puppy Love' like this?"

To pre-order "Uncovered", please visit ButcherBabiesOfficial.com. Shortly before the release of "Uncovered", BUTCHER BABIES will embark on their first headlining run in the U.S. The band will end their tour playing at this year's Knotfest in San Bernardino, California.

JOE PERRY PROJECT, SAVOY BROWN Singer Ralph Morman Passes Away At 65

Singer Ralph Morman died peacefully Sunday, August 17th, following an extended illness in Ashland, Kentucky. He was 65 years old.

He is best known as lead vocalist for the Joe Perry Project from 1979 through 1980. The Project was formed shortly before Joe Perry left Aerosmith. They immediately signed a record deal with CBS Records and released their debut album Let The Music Do The Talking, produced by legendary producer Jack Douglas. The group toured extensively in the US and the album peaked at #47 on Billboard selling over 250,000 copies. After the Joe Perry Project, he joined the English Blues Rock band Savoy Brown featuring guitarist Kim Simmonds. He recorded two albums with them. The first was 1981's Rock 'N Roll Warriors which included the single "Run To Me" and became the band's highest-charting single in the US. The band performed several major arena shows in the US alongside Judas Priest. The second album was Greatest Hits-Live In Concert released in 1982.

The years 1972-1974, Ralph was in the band Bux which included future Angel members Punky Meadows and Mickie Jones as well as drummer Rocky Isaac (Jimi Hendrix). Their album We Come To Play was released in 1976 (two years after they disbanded) on Capitol Records and was produced by Jack Douglas. His first "professional band" was The Outcasts who released the single "Loving You Sometimes" on Plato Records.

Ralph Morman went on hiatus from the music industry for almost 25 years, but announced he was working on a solo project in 2011. Some recordings were made and may be released in the future. He leaves behind his wife, four sons, one daughter, and five grandchildren.

OBITUARY: New Song 'Visions In My Head' Available For Streaming

Florida death metal veterans OBITUARY will release their ninth studio album, "Inked In Blood", on October 28 via the band's new partnership with Relapse Records.

OBITUARY's first full-length CD in over five years was recorded by the band this past April at its own RedNeck Studio in Gibsonton, Florida.

"Inked In Blood" track listing:

01. Centuries Of Lies02. Violent By Nature03. Pain Inside04. Visions In My Head05. Back On Top06. Violence07. Inked In Blood08. Deny You09. Within A Dying Breed10. Minds Of The World11. Out Of Blood12. Paralyzed With Fear

The song "Visions In My Head" can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

Commented OBITUARY on the new material: "We don't know how to explain it but we really hit the 'metal nail' on the head with this album.

"We have been writing and working on the new material for nearly three years now and we could not be more excited how these songs have all turned out.

"All the stars seem to have aligned for us and this release, with the songs, production and overall feel of this record, the band is more solid than ever." The album recording was funded by an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign in late 2013. Now the band has partnered with Relapse worldwide to maximize the release and impact of what is surely their heaviest and most cohesive record in 20 years.

The group elaborated on the decision to create the Kickstarter campaign and sign with Relapse. "We always knew that our fans were some of the most devoted fans on the planet and they proved it by stepping up, being a part of something new and supporting us with our Kickstarter campaign," says the band. "This was an amazing display of true fan support and we could not be more proud of everyone who helped raise the money to record this album by pre-ordering it, buying all the cool stuff we offered and just being a part of something that we believe will be the way of the future. Now we have teamed up with Relapse Records to have them get this new album out there, in stores and available to the fans worldwide.

"We are very excited about our partnership with Relapse and are looking forward to working beside them with the release. They are a great label and super-cool people who have shown us that they are excited to have OBITUARY on their roster and are ready to push this album to its fullest potential." OBITUARY is: John Tardy - Vocals Trevor Peres - Guitar Donald Tardy - Drums Terry Butler - Bass Kenny Andrews - Guitar

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY: 'Pandemonium' Track Listing Revealed

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, the band led by brothers and founding SEPULTURA members Max (also of SOULFLY) and Igor Cavalera, will release its third album, "Pandemonium", on November 4 (one day earlier internationally) via Napalm Records. The CD was produced by John Gray, who has previously worked with SOULFLY.

"Pandemonium" track listing:

01. Babylonian Pandemonium02. Banzai Kamakazi03. Scum04. I, Barbarian05. Carmunhao06. Apex Predator07. Insurrection08. Not Losing The Edge09. Father Of Hate10. The Crucible11. Deus Ex Machina12. Porra

Commented Igor Cavalera on the "Pandemonium" artwork: "It is exciting to work with one of the most amazing living artists, who is also one of my best friends.

"Stephan Doitschnoff expresses in a beautiful way what is tense and ambiguous and makes people think through images and words. For me, it's the best fit to combine with one of the most exciting pieces of music I have written, which is 'Pandemonium'."

A track from the CD, titled "Bonzai Kamakazi", can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below.

During an appearance on the "Metal Hammer" magazine show on TeamRock Radio, Max stated about the upcoming effort: "It's very, very heavy — the heaviest of all the three [CAVALERA CONSPIRACY albums]. I was really possessed to get Igor back to his 'Arise' [SEPULTURA] era of drumming, everything fast."

Max recently told HardRockHaven.net about "Pandemonium": "There aren't really any guests on the album. Nate [Newton] from CONVERGE plays bass and he sings one song called 'The Crucible' — it's about the witches of Salem; we did a song about that. Nate's got a great voice, 'cause he sings for DOOMRIDERS and I love his voice, so I got him to sing one song. That's the only guest. The CAVALERA album is really more about me and Igor [Cavalera, drums], the brothers, thrashing. This one is almost grindcore. I was really a dictator in the studio with Igor to try to keep him from going into the groove and tried to keep him playing fast; I wanted him play fast for most of the record. So every time he'd go into the groove, I would be, like, 'Fuck the groove! Get out of the groove! Go back to the fast shit.' And I succeeded, man. It's a really brutal album. I think it's definitely the most brutal of all the CAVALERA albums and it's definitely gonna turn some heads when people hear this one."

Gray stated about the "Pandemonium" recording process: "This is by far the fastest and heaviest record I have ever had the pleasure of working on with Max Cavalera.

"Max, Igor and Marc [Rizzo, guitar] were on the same page musically from the moment they walked in the door, and recording this album was a very smooth process.

"I had never worked with Igor Cavalera before and I was very impressed with his ability to work out the arrangements with Max and get some extremely complex drum parts done live with hardly any re-takes necessary. Marc Rizzo, as always, was spot-on and a true guitar virtuoso.

"I love to work with Marc because he always pushes himself to perfection, but he is very down to earth and keeps things light when he's under pressure.

"What can I say about Nate Newton — he killed it on the bass tracks with very little back and forth. I'm really impressed with his talent, and I look forward to meeting him some day."

Added Newton: "It was a lot of fun to be a part of this record. For me, it was a challenge to learn the songs sight unseen and record them. It was a pretty interesting look into the way Max writes songs and I am glad to have been a part of it."

Johny Chow, who had been touring and recording with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY for the past few years, in 2013 joined STONE SOUR as that band's new touring bassist.

Joining CAVALERA CONSPIRACY on stage last year for its tour of South America and Mexico was SOULFLY bassist Tony Campos.

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY released the critically acclaimed and universally praised albums "Inflikted" and "Blunt Force Trauma" through Roadrunner Records.

"Blunt Force Trauma" sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 122 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's debut CD, "Inflikted", opened with 9,000 units to enter the chart at No. 72.

"Blunt Force Trauma" was tracked with ex-MACHINE HEAD/SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader, who co-produced the LP with Max. Logan also mixed the effort.

Video Premiere: SKELETONWITCH's 'Unending, Everliving'

"Unending, Everliving", the gruesome new music video by SKELETONWITCH, can be seen below. The track — taken from the band's acclaimed 2013 release, "Serpents Unleashed" — was put to film by Cleveland, Ohio's Turnstyle Films, with whom the band also collaborated on the promo clips for "I Am Of Death (Hell Has Arrived)" and "Serpents Unleashed".

SKELETONWITCH guitarist Nate "N8 Feet Under" Garnette says: "This video was a hell of a lot of fun to shoot and is saturated with fake blood — or is it? — as well as torture. My favorite part was getting to hose off a bloody-ass Chance [Garnette, vocals] with freezing cold water. I normally would have gotten beaten up for that, so it was a nice treat. Enjoy!"

SKELETONWITCH has also released a limited-edition "Unending, Everliving" seven-inch single featuring hand-screened artwork designed by Jeremy Hush (BLACK TUSK, RWAKE) on the B-side. Limited to just 300 copies, the seven-inch is now available exclusively through the Prosthetic webshop paired with a t-shirt or alongside sale-priced copies of "Serpents Unleashed" on CD or LP.

Having recently returned from a month-long jaunt throughout Europe, where they toured alongside SUFFOCATION and HAVOK and appeared at several notable festivals (Summer Breeze, Brutal Assault, Party.San Open Air), SKELETONWITCH will continue to punish audiences throughout North America on a headlining run before joining AMON AMARTH and SABATON for a seven-week tour.

Widely considered the group's best album to date, "Serpents Unleashed" shredded the Billboard chart upon its release last fall while receiving high acclaim from notable press, including Revolver, Guitar World and Decibel. Recorded with Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE, TRAP THEM, EVERY TIME I DIE) at GodCity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts, the record features 11 "chest-quaking" (Pitchfork) tracks of frosty, fiery abomination.

PRONG: 'Remove, Separate Self' Video Released

Fresh off their European summer festival appearances, metal veterans PRONG are gearing up to hit the road this September in North America in support of their latest release, "Ruining Lives", which came out earlier this year via SPV/Steamhammer. The tour begins September 10 in Los Angeles, California and runs through October 14 in San Francisco, California. Many of the dates will see PRONG playing alongside thrash masters OVERKILL. Following a quick break, the band will take part in SLIPKNOT's Knotfest on October 25 in San Bernardino, California. PRONG recently completed filming a video for the song "Remove, Separate Self", taken from "Ruining Lives". Brian Cox and Marcelo Palomino directed the clip, which can be seen below. Comments PRONG mainman Tommy Victor: "PRONG has made a video for the song 'Remove, Separate Self', the new single from our recent LP, 'Ruining Lives'. The song and the video are distinctively PRONG, with a soul-searching and apocalyptic vibe. As a follow-up to 'Turnover', we will release it on seven-inch vinyl as well. The single and video will correspond with our U.S./Canada tour starting September 10 through October 14. Enjoy the video and we'll see you out on the road!" SPV/Steamhammer will release a new digital and seven-inch single of "Remove, Separate Self". There will be two versions of the digital single, which will be made available on September 12. The seven-inch single will be released on October 24. The standard version of the single will include the following tracks: 01. Remove, Separate Self (album version)02. "Separate Self, Remove" inspired by and created from "Remove, Separate Self" by PRONG (Matt Heafy de-mix) Comments TRIVIUM's Matt Heafy about the "de-mix" he created: "With 'Remove, Separate Self', I was initially engulfed by hints of images and characteristics of a futuristic, dystopian world. Whether that was the initial intent of the piece or it was meant to be something entirely different, that became the feeling I kept coming back to. Perhaps with the main line — the title itself — the idea of 'separating yourself' made me think of unplugging oneself from something larger; whether metaphorically from an old way of life or literally in some sort of mecha-future. The idea was to take it one step further, to take the song itself, components of it, and a few secret ingredients, and create that world a little further that I imagined in the first place.

"Sometimes 'remixes' do it right, but I wanted to take a completely different approach to what people think a 'remix' is in the first place, even one's idea of what a song should sound like." The exclusive iTunes edition of the single features a bonus track, which is a version of "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck". This song was taken from PRONG's "Unleashed In The West - Official Bootleg".

SONATA ARCTICA To Release Re-Recorded, 15th-Anniversary Edition Of 'Ecliptica'

While on yet another successful world tour, this time to support their latest studio album, "Pariah's Child", Finnish melodic metal heroes SONATA ARCTICA swung by the studio to re-record their debut album "Ecliptica", which was released 15 years ago. This new version will be released on October 24 under the title "Ecliptica - Revisited; 15th Anniversary Edition" on Nuclear Blast. The original version of "Ecliptica" was recorded at Tico-Tico studios and mixed at Finnvox by Mikko Karmila (NIGHTWISH, CHILDREN OF BODOM). The album was promoted on tour with STRATOVARIUS and RHAPSODY. Comments SONATA ARCTICA's Henrik "Henkka" Klingenberg: "When it first was suggested to us by our Japanese label that we'd re-record our debut album, 'Ecliptica', it felt a bit weird, but somehow the idea grew on us. Being that only Tony and Tommy played on the original one, we thought that it would be a fun thing to do, to give these great songs another run.

"We're definitely not trying to re-write history. The original 'Ecliptica' is the starting point of this band and a very special album with a certain feel of innocence and enthusiasm which cannot be recreated as such since we're not teenagers anymore. Having said that, this new version is more of a tribute and an update on how these songs sound when played by our current lineup. We wanted to stay true to the original album as much as possible and not turn this into some weird re-arranged project where you couldn't tell which song was being played.

"So here it is, the 15th anniversary version of 'Ecliptica'. Hope you enjoy it, we certainly had a good time digging into these songs and laying down the tracks." "Ecliptica - Revisited; 15th Anniversary Edition" track listing: 01. Blank File02. My Land03. 8th Commandment04. Replica05. Kingdom For A Heart06. Fullmoon07. Letter To Dana08. UnOpened09. Picturing The Past10. Destruction Preventer

Bonus:

11. I Can't Dance (GENESIS cover) The first digital single, "Kingdom For A Heart", will be released on September 12.

SLASH Blames Media For Causing 'Unnecessary Conflict' Between Original GUNS N' ROSES Members

Ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash blames the media for causing "unnecessary conflict" between him and his former bandmates, particularly singer Axl Rose, who famously called Slash a "cancer" during a 2009 interview.

Slash, who continues to get asked about his former band despite the fact that he hasn't spoken to Rose since his 1996 departure, tells the Irish Examiner: "I'm not bored with the fascination with [GUNS N' ROSES music]. What I'm bored with is all the brouhaha with stuff the media have no idea what they are talking about.. the causing of unnecessary conflict between the original members. It's just a lot of drama and sensationalism — everyone is trying to capitalize on that. I'm sick of it."

Slash and Axl's former GUNS N' ROSES bandate Duff McKagan seemed to echo those sentiments in an interview from several years ago when he told the Irish Examiner: "You don't talk to the media... the media starts running a little crazy with things. There was a Rolling Stone story about [Axl] a few years ago that painted him as a Howard Hughes sort of figure. And everybody used that as the template to write about Axl. None of it is true.

"You know, he's just a guy caught up in events. He was the singer of that band. And that band got bigger than anybody could have imagined. And being the singer, you are the focal point, rightly or wrongly. You are. There is nothing that can prepare you for that…. If you call it 'reclusive' — that's one person's angle on what it was. Or if you want to say, he saved himself, that's another story."

The sole remaining original member of GUNS N' ROSES, Rose seemed to rule out any possibility of working with Slash again in a 2009 interview with Billboard. "What's clear is that one of the two of us will die before a reunion and however sad, ugly or unfortunate anyone views it, it is how it is," he said.

Slash told The Pulse Of Radio a while back how his relationship with Rose disintegrated during the final years of the original GUNS lineup. "His sort of m.o., as far as the band was concerned, over time got so exaggerated in the rock star sense or whatever and he became such a dictator and this and that and the other, that it was impossible for me to work with him, because I'm not the kind of person that takes orders, you know," he said.

IN FLAMES Frontman ANDERS FRIDÉN: 'We Will Never Do A Country Album'

In a brand new interview with AltPress.com, vocalist Anders Fridén of Swedish metallers IN FLAMES was asked about the direction of the band's new album, "Siren Charms", compared to that on 2011's "Sounds Of A Playground Fading".

"We don't sit at a round table and say, 'We should do this. We should do that.' It just happens. We just wanna make a good album, basically. When I get the music, I just fly with it and do my thing. It's like I get an 80-pecent complete painting and I use my brush and my colors. Björn [Gelotte, lead guitarist] and I never talk like, 'Now we should do this song. Now we should do that song.' It's just, 'Does this feel good?' We don't really look into what other bands do and what other people say we should do.

"I think we are the worst band for A&R people. It must be scary. [Laughs]

"My record company asked me before, 'Do you have any songs?' And I was like, 'Yeah, we got songs. Don't worry.' Obviously, we didn't. We don't let anyone into the studio apart from producers. Friends come and go, but they don't have any say.

"We don't have a record company saying, 'Do this! You need this type of song!' We always stay close to our own hearts and try to incorporate what we're known for, which is melody and aggression. We blend that all kinds of ways."

He added later in the interview: "I wanna challenge our listeners a little bit. They shouldn't know exactly what they're gonna get. They're definitely gonna get IN FLAMES in some sort of way, but I don't wanna do 'Whoracle' or 'Jester Race' part 2.

"We're not a big planning type of band. It's metal, it's rock 'n' roll; let's do whatever.

"When I got into the metal scene and first heard of punk rock and metal, for me, it was, like, 'Whoa! There are no rules! You can do whatever you want.' Then, when I started playing in bands, all of these rules were told to me. What? Can I not do what I want? I have to be this person to be part of this scene. I cannot look this way? To me, you can do whatever you want. I can promise you one thing: We will never do a country album."

Speaking about what he was trying to do vocally this time around, Anders said: "I just had to do what I did this time. Live, I still like to scream. You get an energy from your fans. But standing in front of that mic, I just didn't feel like doing it the same way. Some songs I do, but most of the songs are in a different vocal style. It's also a conscious decision. It happens because the songs need that sound. It doesn't mean I won't scream. I still love the screaming. I'll probably do it on another album. I might be a little bit angrier in another two years."

PITCH BLACK FORECAST: New Version Of 'So Low' Song Featuring LAMB OF GOD's RANDY BLYTHE

PITCH BLACK FORECAST, an all-star project formed by Jason Popson (J Mann of MUSHROOMHEAD) and Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DEATH, DARK ANGEL, TESTAMENT), will release "As The World Burns", a collection of remixed and remastered tracks from PITCH BLACK FORECAST's two previous releases (an out-of-print full-length and EP), on October 21 via Ferocious Records. "This record is a compilation of my favorite PITCH BLACK FORECAST songs, which are remixed with additional tracking and far closer to my initial vision," said Popson, who recently rejoined MUSHROOMHEAD for the band's Top 20 Billboard-charting new record, "The Righteous & The Butterfly". "The funny thing about side projects is the time frame in which you must deliver, sometimes things are rushed and unfocused. With this release, we've trimmed the fat and took our time compiling what I consider the definitive PITCH BLACK FORECAST release."

Asked what genre PITCH BLACK FORECAST falls under, Popson simply said "pissed" to describe the aggressive wallop of the material.

"As The World Burns" also features the debut of another J Mann side project called BITCH WRANGLER. A four-song EP entitled "Spitef*ck" will serve as bonus tracks on the CD.

"As The World Burns" track listing: 01. Open Letter To God (feat. Devin Townsend)02. Landmine (feat. M. Shadows)03. Season In Hell04. As The World Burns05. Hearts Of Darkness06. Dialtone07. So Low (feat. D. Randall Blythe)08. Atonement09. Wrapped In Plastic (feat. Human Furnace)10. Ornament11. Lighthouse Bonus tracks:

Performed by BITCH WRANGLER "Spitef*ck"

12. Masochist13. Innocent14. Sycamore15. Bad Seed

THE CULT's BILLY DUFFY Thinks Next Album 'Will Be More Guitar Heavy'

During a brand new interview with Michael Christopher of Vanyaland, THE CULT guitarist Billy Duffy spoke about the progress of the songwriting sessions, and the musical direction, of the band's next studio album, which is not expected before 2015 at the earliest.

"I don't think it will be like [2007's] 'Born Into This'; I think it will be more guitar heavy," he said. "That was a 'guitar-light' album for a lot of reasons that I won't get into, but it seemed a little guitar shy for a CULT album for my ears — but I am biased.

"We're not far enough in [the songwriting process for the next CD]; we've got completed songs, but there isn't really enough of a cross section of material to figure out what it's gonna be like yet. I don't see it being a quantum departure; I don't think it's going to be too bonkers. I don't know — for all I know, Ian [Astbury, vocals] wants to make an electro dub dance album."

Duffy also commented on the incident at THE CULT's August 2013 concert at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida when a fan attending the show was ejected from the venue by Ian Astbury for allegedly texting and being disrespectful during the performance.

"I was right there, I saw it go down and that's a particularly extreme example," Duffy said.

"That particular person, he wasn't cool. And I don't understand why you would want to stand for hours in front of a venue waiting for us to come on to not be present. That's what makes humans interesting species — they're all weird.

"I'm supportive of [Ian] on that. I think it was a good point, actually. It's funny, a lot of the time with Ian he seems to crack a walnut with a hammer, but I think it opened up a debate. You walk out on stage every night and you give something to the fans, and they've got to give something back. That's why live music is still valuable; it's a unique experience."

BUTCHER BABIES' HEIDI SHEPHERD: 'We Have Something Coming Out In October'

Australia's Music Feeds recently conducted an interview with BUTCHER BABIES. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

BUTCHER BABIES has spent much of the summer writing and recording some of the material for its forthcoming second album with producer Logan Mader (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, DEVILDRIVER, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY). A 2015 release via Century Media is expected.

BUTCHER BABIES' Heidi Shepherd told Music Feeds: "We have something coming out in October. I can't say exactly what it is. But I'm gonna hint to it, 'cause I want to hint to it. Yes, we have something dropping in October, something that we're all very excited about and we actually worked really hard on. And then our new album is well underway, and that will be coming out next year."

BUTCHER BABIES' debut album, "Goliath", sold around 3,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 107 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD came out on July 9, 2013 via Century Media Records.

In an interview with Maine Music News, BUTCHER BABIES' Carla Harvey said: "We spent six weeks in pre-production and recording to make an album that gives us goose bumps every time we hear it.

"We all come from different musical backgrounds. I love old-school stuff like SLAYER, old METALLICA, I love PANTERA. [Our drummer] Chris [Warner], loves MARILYN MANSON. Heidi, my co-vocalist loves nu-metal. Henry [Flury], our guitar player, loves MESHUGGAH, and Jason [Klein], our bass player, loves death metal. So we managed to put all the different kinds of metal that we love into this album. It is so organic, and it sounds so good. We are getting tweets and Facebook messages all day long from our fans telling us how great it is. So besides what the critics say, what matters most is that we are proud of it and our fans are loving it."

MORBID ANGEL's TIM YEUNG Says There Is Talk Of Band Recording New EP

On August 8, Metal Mark of SkullsNBones.com conducted an interview with drummer Tim Yeung of death metal veterans MORBID ANGEL. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked when fans can expect to see a follow-up to MORBID ANGEL's 2011 album "Illud Divinum Insanus", Yeung replied: "I don't know. I don't have that answer. I would love to do [a new album] — I'm ready right now — but it's really up to other people to start getting some stuff together. I think there are some songs that are kind of in the works right now. I know there's riffs and stuff like that — I hear stuff here and there — but we aren't actually working on anything yet. But we are working on getting… We're talking about doing maybe an EP, something of that nature. I think that could be a possibility. [We'll] try to shoot for next year. Or 2016, I don't know… Hopefully it's soon. Hopefully next year. So there is talks of it. But nothing confirmed."

"Illud Divinum Insanus" sold around 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 141. The effort marked MORBID ANGEL's first CD to feature bassist/vocalist David Vincent since 1995's "Domination".

Regarding the mixed fan reactions to "Illud Divinum Insanus", Vincent told AndrewHaug.com back in April: "It's pretty interesting, looking back over a year later now, and a number of people said, 'You know, I've listened to it a little more,' and because it wasn't what they absolutely expected… Which is another very good reason to do something, to keep the artistic integrity as pure as possible. But MORBID ANGEL has always been a band that been all-encompassing. And when people, sort of, think that they know what we should sound like… I don't think anybody knows what we should sound like more than we do. It's not like it's that big a departure, because on the 'Covenant' record, we did some collaborations with the Slovenian band LAIBACH for that record. So it's not like it's a big change for us to work with some electronic artists and to do some interesting things, in and amongst everything else that we do. So I'm pleased that people have come around to it."

He continued: "We've had interesting comments, really, throughout our career, with each record. After putting out 'Altars Of Madness', then when we went to 'Blessed Are The Sick', people were, like, 'Oh, wow, this is different.' Well, of course it is. And then 'Covenant' was different from that. So these are things that we expect and we continue to do what we do. A lot of people are grateful that we've done what we've done throughout the years.

"Everyone has their favorite things and everyone has the things that maybe are not their favorites. But I would imagine that it's that way with any band out there."

He added: "This is what we've always done. We don't look outward for inspiration, we look inward. So writing to the wayward and short-attention-span tastes of some listeners is something that we've never even considered doing.

"When I listen to bands and I hear stuff that I like or stuff that I don't like, because I'm, obviously, a music fan myself, I look at the portfolio of stuff and a lot of times I might hear something and maybe it doesn't hit me the first time, but maybe upon subsequent listens, I finally understand it and I get it and I enjoy it. So this is how it works with art. I walk through museums and I don't like every painting necessarily — I wouldn't put them on my wall — but I appreciate them in the whole stroke of the visual journey."

Ex-IRON MAIDEN Singer PAUL DI'ANNO Scraps 'Retirement' Plans, Launches New Band ARCHITECTS OF CHAOZ

Former IRON MAIDEN singer Paul Di'Anno has scrapped his retirement plans and is in the process of recording a new album with his new band called ARCHITECTS OF CHAOZ (also featuring members of Paul's longtime German touring backing group THE PHANTOMZ).

Due to a number of health issues, including a knee problem, Di'Anno announced in July 2012 that he would stop touring in 2013. His farewell tour had since been extended to 2014.

Asked in a brand new interview with "The Metal Voice"about his "farewell" tour, Di'Anno interjected (hear audio below): "It's not a farewell tour. I was gonna retire because of a bad knee. And it was really pissing me off. What it is, I've got a knee replacement, 'cause it's all damaged; I've had a couple of motorcycle accidents. I thought about quitting — not because I wanted to, but I thought, 'This could get worse. I'm doing more damage to it.' But then I thought, it doesn't make a difference; it's about the voice. So it's not the farewell tour. And I spoke to the wife and she said, 'Oh, my God. If you stay home for two months, I'll probably murder you.' So I decided in the end, 'Fuck it.' Doing all these things is great, but I actually wanna be part of a band."

Paul Di'Anno's April 9 performance at Lizard Club in Krakow, Poland as part of the Doładowanie festival was professionally filmed for an upcoming DVD, titled "The Beast Arises", to be released on October 6 in Europe through Metal Mind Productions and October 7 in North America via MVD. "The Beast Arises" will also be made available on CD, digital and vinyl.

The setlist for Di'Anno's concert in Krakow included some of the best IRON MAIDEN tracks from the period when Di'Anno was the band’s lead singer, as well as KILLERS and Di'Anno solo tracks. The DVD will also contain bonus features such as an interview with Di'Anno, a photo gallery and more.

Di'Anno recorded two classic albums with IRON MAIDEN before being fired and replaced by Bruce Dickinson. He went on to front a number of other bands, including KILLERS and BATTLEZONE, and released several solo records.

Asked why he thinks his two LPs with MAIDEN became timeless and iconic in the rock history, Di'Anno told Spotlight Report: "I think because when we started, the whole punk thing was so bloody huge, which I loved and still love punk to this day, and the heavier music just became so distant; they called it dinosaur rock back in the day."

He continued: "When we got signed and the whole New Wave Of British Heavy Metal started, that's what really kicked off what we have today. If it wasn't for MAIDEN and bands like SAXON, MOTÖRHEAD, etc., you would never have had bands like METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX. If you didn't have those bands, you would never have had SEPULTURA, MORBID ANGEL and then PANTERA, etc. So at the time, they were just bloody good albums, but in the history of things, they really kicked off what started for anything today that has heavy guitar. And yeah, they are timeless. Those albums still sell millions. You don't see the crap that was around then still selling shit, like SHAKIN' STEVENS or SPANDAU BALLET, do ya?"

KILLER BE KILLED: 'Snakes Of Jehovah' Video Released

"Snakes Of Jehovah", the new video fromKILLER BE KILLED, the new band comprised of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA), Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), Troy Sanders (MASTODON) and Dave Elitch (ex-THE MARS VOLTA), can be seen below. The clip was shot by renowned director Thomas Mignone of Doom Inc. (SLIPKNOT, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, CRADLE OF FILTH, MUDVAYNE, SUICIDE SILENCE).

"Snakes Of Jehovah" is taken from KILLER BE KILLED's self-titled debut album from KILLER BE KILLED, which sold around 5,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 58 on The Billboard 200 chart.

"Killer Be Killed" was released on May 13 (one day earlier internationally) via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur, whose credits include work with GOJIRA, LAMB OF GOD, HATEBREED, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ESCAPE THE FATE, P!NK and STEVE EARLE. Cover art and packaging was executed by Ryan Clark of Invisible Creature Design, the Grammy-nominated design firm whose clients include ALICE IN CHAINS, FOO FIGHTERS, CHRIS CORNELL, DEVILDRIVER, MONSTER MAGNET, WOLFMOTHER and DEMON HUNTER.

"He's a Polish worker in the back of a dark truck, but he looked like a criminal to me," explained Clark about his choice for the cover's image. "Multiplying his face seemed to give him a sort of split personality/schizophrenic vibe, which feels like a good mesh. Not just for the band name but the idea of a (for the lack of a better term) supergroup." "Killer Be Killed" track listing:

01. Wings Of Feather And Wax02. Face Down03. Melting Of My Marrow04. Snakes Of Jehovah05. Curb Crusher06. Save The Robots07. Fire To Your Flag08. I.E.D.09. Dust Into Darkness10. Twelve Labors11. Forbidden Fire12. Ghosts Of Chernobyl (vinyl-only bonus track)

"Killer Be Killed" first-week chart positions:

Australia: #47USA: #58UK: #71Canada: #71Germany: #90Switzerland: #91Belgium: #113France: #173

MetalSucks placed Puciato at #1 on their list of the Top 25 Modern Metal Frontmen, but he also expresses himself through the dark electro-pop of THE BLACK QUEEN, together with NINE INCH NAILS touring guitarist Josh Eustis of TELEFON TEL AVIV and Maynard James Keenan's PUSCIFER. Puciato made a guest appearance in 2012 with MIXHELL, the DJ project of Max's brother, SEPULTURA co-founder Igor Cavalera. Cavalera is no stranger to collaborations, of course, having invited multiple guests onto SEPULTURA's genre-defining "Roots" and SOULFLY's gold-selling debut album in 1998. One such SOULFLY guest, Chino Moreno, has often joined Puciato onstage with both THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and DEFTONES. Max was one-half of the incendiary NAILBOMB, together with English record producer and FUDGE TUNNEL mastermind Alex Newport. The pair released one studio album in 1993 and performed a blistering set at the Dynamo festival in 1995. "We did the song on SOULFLY's 'Omen' and then we started talking about doing an entire album together, the way he had with Alex Newport," Puciato explains. "We eventually got together with some riffs we both had and wrote a bunch more material in a 72-hour blast out in the desert. We left with about 15 demos we made using the same drum machine and four track Max used working on 'Chaos A.D.'" Cognizant of the reputation both of them have cultivated after working with some of the world's best drummers, Puciato called upon David Elitch, who had toured internationally with the mind-bendingly psychedelic group THE MARS VOLTA. His expertise in everything from jazz to metal has led to live and studio collaborations with a diverse range of major artists including Justin Timberlake, French electronic wizards M83 and Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør. MASTODON and THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have toured together many times. During one such tour in the U.S., in late 2011, Puciato was telling Sanders about the new project. Before too long, Sanders and Cavalera were meeting at a festival in South America for the first time: "Hey, I'm Troy. And I think we're in a band together." The electric chemistry was apparent the first time they all assembled. "Having met, created and recorded an album together, this experience has easily exceeded my initial expectations," says Sanders. "The collective energy and mutual respect for one another eased the entire process and has been very therapeutic for me."

SEPULTURA: 'Territory' Performance Clip From 'Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio' DVD, Blu-Ray

In celebration of their astounding thirty-year career, Brazilian/American metallers SEPULTURA will unleash a new live offering titled "Sepultura And Les Tambours du Bronx: Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio" in North America on September 14 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. In a spectacular performance that finds SEPULTURA accompanied throughout by the French industrial percussion group LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX, notorious for beating 225-liter barrels with beech wood bats or even axe handles, the show was recorded from the band's main stage appearance at the legendary Rock In Rio festival in 2013. Featuring SEPULTURA's most revered tunes — including "Refuse/Resist", "Territory" and "Roots Bloody Roots", the latter of which sees the audience chanting the entire cut from beginning to end — the sheer volume of sound, percussive enormity and powerful presentation sets this release apart from any previous SEPULTURA concert offering to date. With a one-hour run time divided into thirteen cuts, the album also features a cover of THE PRODIGY's "Firestarter", the fan-chanted "Sepulnation" and music from the band's "Kairos" full-length.

"Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio" will come available on CD, DVD and for the first time in the band's history, Blu-ray via a partnership with Rock In Rio, MZA Music and Eagle Rock Entertainment. In addition, the DVD includes an exclusive documentary of behind-the-scenes preparation with interviews, rehearsal and soundcheck footage and clips of the band just seconds before they hit the stage. "Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio" track listing:

01. Kaiowas02. Spectrum03. Refuse/Resist04. Sepulnation05. Delirium06. Fever07. We've Lost You08. Firestarter (THE PRODIGY cover)09. Requiem10. Structure Violence11. Territory12. Big Hands13. Roots Bloody Roots

The "Territory" performance clip, taken from "Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio", can be seen below.

SEPULTURA's new album, "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart", sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD came out on October 29, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Although it was inspired by Fritz Lang's classic 1927 movie "Metropolis", "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" is not a concept album or a soundtrack like its precedessors "Dante XXI" (based on "The Divine Comedy") and "A-Lex" (based on "A Clockwork Orange").

"The Mediator Between The Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" was tracked over a 40-day period at producer Ross Robinson's (KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, SLIPKNOT) studio in Venice, California and was mixed and mastered by co-producer Steve Evetts, who previously worked with SEPULTURA on the "Nation" (2001), "Revolusongs" (2002) and "Roorback" (2003) albums, in addition to having collaborated with Ross on a number of other projects in the past.

THE HAUNTED: 'Cutting Teeth' Video Released

"Cutting Teeth", the new video from Swedish metallers THE HAUNTED, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's band's new album, "Exit Wounds", which will be released on August 25 in Europe and September 2 in North America via Century Media. The CD was once again recorded with the group's longtime producer Tue Madsen at Denmark's Antfarm Studio (DARK TRANQUILLITY, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, SICK OF IT ALL) and features THE HAUNTED's revamped lineup: founding members Jonas Björler (bass) and Patrik Jensen (guitar) along with with returning members Adrian Erlandsson (drums) and Marco Aro (vocals), and the band's latest addition, guitarist Ola Englund.

Comments Aro: "Here's the video to go with our song 'Cutting Teeth'. We decided to make a video that matched the brutality in the song, so we contacted a guy we had heard great things about, Jakob Arevärn. With Jakob at the helm, the filming and all the stuff around the shoot went really smooth — and it turns out I made a good friend along the way too! So here it is... Enjoy and we'll see you all soon!"

"Exit Wounds" features two special guests appearing on the song "Trend Killer": Jed Simon (SCAR THE MARTYR, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) on lead guitar and Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT) on vocals.

Said Billy: "I have always been a THE HAUNTED fan and became friends with the band over the years. When they asked if I would like to sing on a song for the new album with Marco singing, I didn't have to think twice about doing it. When I received the track and listened for the first time, I said, 'Fuck Yeah...this is gonna be brutal!'"

"Exit Wounds" track listing:

01. 31702. Cutting Teeth03. My Salvation04. Psychonaut05. Eye Of The Storm06. Trend Killer (feat. Chuck Billy, Jed Simon)07. Time (Will Not Heal)08. All I Have09. Temptation10. My Enemy11. Kill The Light12. This War13. Infiltrator14. Ghost In The Machine

Comments Aro: "This time around we've found our way back to where we once started! You could say that we've gathered the old crew, both in music and the artwork.

"Our old friend Andreas 'Diaz' Pettersson is back, an amazing artist with a rap sheet which includes the artwork on no less than four THE HAUNTED albums. He always finds a way to put our thoughts into print where he sometimes even scares us a bit...and this release in no different.

"We decided on 'Exit Wounds' as being a good title for the album given the recent history of the band, but also a sort of a phoenix rising.

"We are so excited about this little thing we've created!

"Can't wait to get out there and start playing these songs and for me personally, I could not be more proud of what we have done. I really hope you're going to enjoy it!"

THE HAUNTED released a new three-song single, "Eye Of The Storm", on January 20 in Europe and January 21 in North America via Century Media Records.

"Eye Of The Storm" was made available as limited-edition seven-inch EP (1,000 copies split as follows: 500 on black vinyl, 300 on red vinyl and 200 on white vinyl) and as digital single, featuring the new songs "Eye Of The Storm", "Infiltrator" and "My Enemy".

THE HAUNTED's 2014 lineup:

* Patrik Jensen - Guitar * Ola Englund (SIX FEET UNDER, FEARED) - Guitar * Marco Aro (THE RESISTANCE, FACE DOWN) - Vocals * Jonas Björler - Bass * Adrian Erlandsson (AT THE GATES, PARADISE LOST) - Drums

UDR has set an October 21 North American release date (one day earlier internationally) for "Raise The Dead - Live From Wacken" from legendary rocker Alice Cooper.

With "Raise The Dead - Live From Wacken", the label is starting a new live series of legendary Wacken performances. When Alice learned about the purpose behind it, he was very happy to be one the first to participate and support the Wacken Foundation.

The Wacken Foundation is a non-profit organization, supporting the new blood of hard rock and heavy metal music. For every CD and DVD sold, one euro will be contributed to the Wacken Foundation.

"Raise The Dead" will be available as DVD + CD digipack. The DVD contains 22 songs from the Wacken Open Air concert on August 3, 2013 and an interview with the man himself as a bonus. The double CD contains the complete concert.

SLIPKNOT To Release '.5: The Gray Chapter' In October

According to iTunes, SLIPKNOT's fifth album will be titled ".5: The Gray Chapter" and will be made available on October 21 via Roadrunner. The CD will include 14 songs, plus two bonus tracks for the deluxe edition.

".5: The Gray Chapter" track listing:

01. XIX02. Sarcastrophe03. Aov04. The Devil In I05. Killpop06. Skeptic07. Lech08. Goodbye09. Nomadic10. The One That Kills The Least11. Custer12. Be Prepared For Hell13. The Negative One14. If Rain Is What You Want15. Override (bonus track)16. The Burden (bonus track)

You can see the cover artwork below.

"The Devil In I", the official first single from ".5: The Gray Chapter", can be streamed below. The disc follows up 2008's "All Hope Is Gone" and is the band's first without founding bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010, and drummer Joey Jordison, who was let go late last year.

"The Devil In I" is more melodic and features cleaner vocals from frontman Corey Taylor, who told The Pulse Of Radio what the song is about. "'The Devil In I' is really about the war inside yourself," he said. "Trying not to give into defeatism, trying not to give into negativity, trying not to give up basically. It's a struggle. It's one of the hardest thing you can do, is to give in to that side of yourself."

SLIPKNOT issued and quickly fulfilled a casting call earlier in the month for fans — also known as "maggots" — to appear in the new video for "The Devil In I". The call for extras to appear as "human maggots," requiring that applicants be between 20 and 35 years old and "comfortable to be shooting in barefoot," was issued the weekend of August 16-17 and was no longer accepting submissions by August 18.

The shoot was scheduled to take place on either Friday (August 22) or Saturday (August 23) in the Los Angeles area.

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio that the band's remaining members pulled closer together in the studio following Gray's passing. "It was almost like getting to know each other again," he said. "We were all kind of grieving in our own way and dealing with things in our own way, and knowing that we had to be healthy to go in, we had to be creative to go in, and knowing that we were gonna have to fill this huge void, we just kind of took it upon ourselves to make up for that emptiness by being a little bit of Paul. Like we were all a little bit of Paul in our own way."

Asked what has been most fulfilling about working on new SLIPKNOT music that he never experienced before, Corey told Full Metal Jackie: "This one, it just feels, there's something weird about this one. Obviously this is the first album we're making without Paul.

"After everything we went through, there's a catharsis that comes with this, being able to throw all the emotion and aggression out that we've been holding onto. At the same time, getting to be creative again. Feeling that juice coming back into us. It's been a real positive experience just from an artistic standpoint, a lyrical standpoint.

"We're making an album that's not just a reflection. Let's just get new music out there. There's something very vital with what we're trying to do. There's something very visceral with the emotion we're playing with and trying to tell the story of a band that's gone through hell, and yet we're back. It's been really fulfilling."

Corey recently described the musical direction of the new SLIPKNOT material as "a great mesh of [2001's] 'Iowa' and [2004's] 'Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)'." He explained: "You've got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of 'Vol. 3' and then you've got the absolute brutality of 'Iowa'. And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it."

Reports have suggested that SLIPKNOT has recruited drummer Jay Weinberg to play on the new album and tour. Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, longtime Bruce Springsteen and the E STREET BAND drummer. There are also rumors that SLIPKNOT is no longer working with Donnie Steele, the group's original guitar player who has been playing bass for SLIPKNOT since the band resumed touring in 2011.

SLIPKNOT announced in December 2013 that it had parted ways with Jordison. The band has not disclosed the reasons for Jordison's exit, although the drummer issued a statement in January saying that he did not quit the group.

The video for "The Negative One", which can be seen below, was directed by SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan, who has directed most of the band's music videos and concert documentaries.

The second edition of SLIPKNOT's Knotfest event will take place on October 24-26 in San Bernardino, California. More than two dozen other acts will join the headliners, including FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, VOLBEAT, OF MICE & MEN, IN THIS MOMENT, HELLYEAH and ATREYU.
