Chicago thrashers DIAMOND PLATE have released a new track, titled "At the Mountains of Madness".

"At the Mountains of Madness" is the first song to be released from the band's forthcoming debut album, GENERATION WHY?, which was recorded with producer NEIL KERNON (JUDAS PRIEST, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) and is due to be released on August 29th on Earache Records.

Listen to the new track now at http://www.earache.com/why (e-mail required)

DIAMOND PLATE lead guitarist KONRAD KUPIEC comments:

"All of us couldn't be more excited to release 'At the Mountains of Madness' as the first song off 'Generation Why?'. With the original video for this song nearing 100,000 views on YouTube, 'Mountains' is arguably the song most people know us by, and we want to give old and new fans the perfect representation of how much we've improved over the past few years. With this album, the band sounds tighter and heavier, while the song-writing is more focused than ever.

"The song is inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft novel of the same name, although we went deeper than the classic horror story of the novel and made our own social commentary present in the lyrics. As to our theme, that is for the listener to interpret and figure out.

Hot News – Multinational Heavy Metallers Powerwolf announce details on bonus disc content off their new album 'Blood Of The Saints'! L...

2011. jún 14, 9:11 :

Multinational Heavy Metallers POWERWOLF have announced details about the bonus content off their upcoming new album Blood Of The Saints which will be released as a limited Digibook edition including a bonus disc. Additionally a regular jewelcase cd (without bonus disc) will be available as well as a gatefold-LP!

For the bonus CD the wolves realized a special project. In cooperation with the Russian score composer Dominic G. Joutsen they elaborated a classical orchestra piece based on five POWERWOLF songs, entitled "The sacrilege symphony (and still the orchestra prays)".

"This was a very special and challenging project" comments Matthew Greywolf. "Working with a classical composer demands a whole different approach to your own music. And the result is simply stunning".

Attila Dorn completed the orchestra versions with a classical vocal performace. "It was a long-kept dream of mine to perform some of my favourite Powerwolf songs as classical versions and I think it offers a very sophisticated yet haunting vision of Powerwolf's music" reports Attila.
