Hot News – Týr: On Top of the World

2011. jún 10, 19:48 :

For the first time in their illustrious, still-rising career, the Faroese pagan metal mongers TÝR have topped the CMJ Loud Rock radio charts with their brand-new album, "The Lay of Thrym". The album had charted at #31 last week, and now, on the week of its US release, shoots all the way up to #1. Frontman Heri Joensen says: "I almost fell off my cozy couch this morning, when I got the message that our album was #1 on the CMJ Loud Rock radio charts. We had not even hoped for anything like this. We're thrilled to have been received this well by the radio stations across the US, and we're fascinated so many people want to hear our songs. However, with this album, we deliberately tried to hit a broader audience, outside the Folk/Pagan/Viking scene, and it looks like it has paid off. So even though we're surprised, it was sort of what we were aiming for. It just appears to have worked better than we anticipated. I'm almost tempted to say, 'Look, mom - I'm on top of the world!'" In other TÝR news, a new North American tour is being planned for early 2012. More details can be found HERE!

Hot News – James Byrd's Atlantis Rising 'Beyond The Pillars' released July 15th 2011

2011. jún 10, 19:32 :

Lion Music are proud to introduce some true musical treasure in the form of this special release from the early days of one of the worlds most accomplished guitarists, James Byrd. A name synonymous with some of the finest guitar work committed to tape, this unique release is an album any fan of the former Fifth Angel guitarist will have been longing to hear and serves as a reminder of just how good a songwriter and musician Byrd is.

Comprised of 14 never before heard performances and 7 new songs, “Beyond The Pillars” is -literally- a lost album. The material's origins date to when James Byrd began writing and recording with vocalist Freddy Krumins within days of departing Fifth Angel in the summer of 1987, with much of the music material Byrd had originally intended for the second Fifth Angel album.

Like Deep Purple's “Smoke on the Water” release, “Beyond The Pillars” was recorded on location. Brain Storm Productions mobile captured the band's magic at the infamous Music Bank sound stages in Seattle Washington from the fall of 1987 through the winter of 1988. Fans of Byrd’s solo debut “James Byrd’s Atlantis Rising” (Shrapnel Records) will recognise 7 of the track titles on offer here. However the versions here showcase a rawer, heavier and more immediate delivery to those that were later re-recorded on the now out of print “Atlantis Rising” release by Shrapnel Records. Further treasures are revealed in 7 never released songs rich in diversity and depth that make this a “must own” part of any Byrd, or indeed Fifth Angel’s fans music collection.

The tour will begin on December 3rd in Sao Paulo, Brazil and will wrap up on December 13th in Mexico City, Mexico.

South American fans are notoriously some of the most diehard metal heads in the world and the bands are excited for this tour to get started. Cannibal Corpse vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher comments on the tour: "In every interview, I am asked where the sickest and best death metal fans are and it is hands down South America. I've seen kids in the front row bleeding and losing their minds, they are all crazy in the best way possible. It's hands down my favorite place to play and I can't wait to come back!" The Black Dahlia Murder vocalist Trevor Strnad adds, "We are very excited to be a part of this monstrous South American tour. It is always a pleasure to play alongside the almighty Cannibal Corpse... but in South America?! The shows are going to be absolutely insane, without a doubt. To the South American fans: prepare for an unearthly ritual!" Guitarist Brian Eschbach comments further, "We are extremely excited for another chance to support the almighty Cannibal Corpse!!! It has always been great touring with them. We especially look forward to seeing them DESTROY South America and Mexico City. iViva la Smash!"
