Hot News – Samael confirmed for 70000Tons Of Metal

2011. jún 17, 14:31 :

While 70000TONS OF METAL, The World's Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival is once again sailing across the Baltic Sea we finally received news from their Scouting Party: They got lost in a dark valley of the Swiss Alps but were saved by an even darker angel by the name of SAMAEL. Together they are now heading north, back to Germany...

Make no mistake, 70000TONS OF METAL is not your grandma's cruise. It's also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It's like everyone has a backstage pass!

2011. jún 17, 14:20 :

New Orleans derelicts, EYEHATEGOD -- vocalist Mike Williams, guitarists Jimmy Bower and Brian Patton, bassist Gary Mader and drummer Joey LaCaze -- will kick off their long-anticipated European summer tour tomorrow! Dubbed the Retox and Nihilism Over Europe Tour 2011, the debauchery will commence at Hellfest in Clisson, France and level 20 additional cities, before coming to a tumultuous close at the Rock Café in Tallinn, Estonia. The trek will include stops at the Kriston Festival in Spain, GSM Fest in Portugal, the Roskilde Festival in Denmark and the Stoned >From The Underground Festival in Germany. EYEHATEGOD will be joined by Japanese doom brigade, Church Of Misery.

Said Mike Williams of the journey: "Breaking news to the bastard sons of all unemployed and dysfunctional tribes of homeless malcontents worldwide! Louisiana's EYEHATEGOD have finally been granted a set of much-maligned overseas work visas today in an unprecedented governmental and congressional decision upheaval. EHG have been given legal permission to invade the European continent... and more. For tour dates, see below. The threat to rock 'n' roll, and music in general, is imminent. Kill your Facebook. Smash your Twitter. (R.I.P. Seth Putnam...)."

Hollywood Rose, The Idoru, Anti Fitness Club, Superbutt egy színpadon, akusztikusan!

2011. jún 17, 8:07 :

A Guns ’n Roses mára már rongyosra hallgatott aranydalait dolgozta fel nektek akusztikusan a Hollywood Rosezenekar! Ugyan abszolút tisztában vagyunk vele, hogy énekesük, Jesse hangja kísértetiesen hasonlít Axl-re, mi mégis úgy döntöttünk megnézzük kedvenc énekeseitek hogyan adják elő ezeket a dalokat.

A próbák már megvoltak, s bátran jelenthetjük ki, nemhogy értik a dolgukat, de egy olyan produkcióval állnak majd elétek az IBS (International Business School) színpadán, amilyet még nem látott Budapest.

Molnár Tomiról (AFC) mindenki számára kiderül majd, hogy a média és néha a közönség által feledésbe merülő rocker szíve nemhogy létezik, de igenis dobpergésszerűen ver!

Vörös András (Superbutt) is hozza a mára már tőle elvárt metál-formáját, míg Siklósi Örs (AWS) az idei MTV Brand-New zenekarának frontembere pedig megmutatja nektek, hogy a húsz évesek is tudják miről szól a metál!

Touché Amoré is beyond excited to announced that they are confirmed to play FYF in Los Angeles on September 3rd alongside the Descendents, Death >From Above 1979,  Guided By Voices, Kid Dynamite, and so many more.  Vocalist Jeremy Bolm commented, "We're excited to announce we will be performing at this years FYF Fest. Being that we're from Los Angeles, many of us have attended the festival the past couple of years and we're looking forward to being a part of it. The opportunity to play alongside some of our favorite bands that we'd normally never get the chance to is the best part. We can soon say we got to share the stage with The Weakerthans, Explosions in the Sky, Broken Social Scene, and especially Descendents. This is a very eclectic and open-minded festival and we'd highly recommend making the trip!"

Twister – egy dal ízelítőnek az új lemezről!

2011. jún 16, 20:25 :

Mint ahogy arról korábban már hírt adtunk, a Twister zenekarnak hamarosan megjelenik az első lemeze. Hogy a lehető legtöbb rockerhez eljusson Az Ördög lánya, a lemez a Hammerworld Magazin július-augusztusi számának mellékleteként kerül majd a piacra.
De a fiúk úgy döntöttek, hogy ízelítőnek már most megmutatnak két új dalt. Az egyik nóta, az "Így imádlak" című, már első hallásra is a slágergyanús nóták kategóriájába tartozik. Reményeink szerint a Twister rajongók és a magazin olvasói is így gondolják majd és minél többen jönnek el a zenekar lemezbemutató koncertjére 2011. október 7-én a Crazy Mama Music Pubba.
