The song has the familiar Cattle Decapitation sound, but with this track it has a few stand out mellow moments that bring us out of the slaughter house to a place slightly more comfortable. Then like a cattle prod to the skull they bring you right back to that familiar sound and all is right in the world.

Prepare yourself, Austin, Texas’s own The Sword is releasing 15 new tracks for your listening pleasure. The new album “High Country” will be released via Razor & Tie on August 21st. This will mark their 5th studio album, and it will be an uphill battle to compete with their previous releases like 2012’s “Apocryphon” and “Warp Riders” released in 2010. The album is produced by Adrian Quesada. It’s said that he pushes the boundaries where analog meets digital and retro meets progressive. The Sword already have a retro’ish sound, so whatever comes out of this pairing I’m certain will be to the fans liking.

You can hear the new track here!

Anytime a band has the word “country” in it’s album title it scares us in a way. But after seeing these new pre-order bundles for “High Country” we assume they speak of something entirely different than the “high country” we imagined.

Robb Flynn of Machine Head Has A New Hero…..

Facebooktwittermail

Robb Flynn lead singer for one of heavy metals finest bands Machine Head are currently in Australia. The last date of the sold out “An Evening With” tour in Australia ended last night in Perth. After Robb’s flight from Adelaide to Perth he noticed he no longer had his phone. As we all know your cell phone especially when abroad is a life line. It’s your email, social media, gps, well you get the point, it’s everything.

poster_mini

 

Robb explained what happened via Instagram:

I left my phone on the flight from Adelaide to Perth yesterday, AGH!! I discovered it missing when we got to the hotel. FUUUUCK!! Thanks to “Find My iPhone” app I was able to track it back to the airport. My TM and I went back re-traced my steps around the coffee shop, bathroom, everywhere I went after I got off the plane, but mysteriously, my phone kept saying it was out on the tarmac. We learned from when someone broke into our dressing room and stole Dave’s iPhone (and eventually got back from thief) that the app s not 100% accurate but pretty damn close. So I took it all with a grain of salt. Eventually we found the dude below, and this guy went way, way, WAY above and beyond the call of duty looking for the phone out on the tarmac, which was a restricted area that we couldn’t go to. He kept coming back saying there was nothing out there, that it had to be wrong, and after 2 hours I was ready to give up, and resign myself to buying a new phone because let’s face it, in this day and age, EVERYTHING goes through your iPhone! He went back one more time, and miraculously, he found the phone!! He kept pinging it with the “play sound” feature (which sets off a ringtone), and where did he find it? Not on the plane, oh no… it was under a fence, in the outside area of the tarmac!!?? Apparently some Qantas Airlines employee in charge of cleaning the planes had found it and rather than turn it into lost & found, stashed it to take home, in hopes I’d forget it or something. Regardless, for the unbelievable amount of effort Mr. Scott Macander put into helping me out, this guy is getting a “DUDE’S A HERO” moniker!!! He stayed an hour after work to keep looking for it, and help a complete stranger, and that was after he’d worked from 4 AM to 4PM! I’m so damn inspired by this guy!! An average person / stranger who helps us out for no reason in particular other than just being a rad person. I tell ya man, in a world where everyone is often too busy helping themselves, and in a fat ass hurry to get on with their own lives, this guy did the opposite, am I grateful he did!!

Hero of the day is Scott Macander!

Iron Maiden To Release “Book Of Shadows”

Facebooktwittermail

Iron Maiden are set to release their 16th studio album on September 4th worldwide. The new album titled “The Book of Souls” will be a double album and was produced by Kevin Shirley and recorded in Paris, France. He has worked with other well-known bands in the past such as Aerosmith, Dream Theater, Black Country Communion, Journey, The Black Crowes, Silverchair and Rush. Finishing touches on the highly anticipated album from the metal stalwarts was just recently completed, and in many ways answers the questions that were posed when Bruce Dickinson had shockingly released news he had a tumor on the back of his tongue back in 2014. Chemotherapy and radiation have helped and Bruce has been given the all clear from his medical staff, although most recently it has been said the band may have to postpone a full scale tour until next year. The new album contains 11 tracks, and is a whopping 92 minutes long. This will be the first double studio album that Iron Maiden has released. The cover art was completed by 62 year old British artist Mark Wilkinson who is well known for his work on Judas Priest albums Ram It Down, Painkiller, Jugulator, Nostradamus and Redeemer of Souls. Eddie is looking as fierce as ever I might add as well.

Here is the album cover:

Slayer Release Album Art For Repentless!

Facebooktwittermail

Slayer has released the cover of the new upcoming album “Repentless” which is due out September 11, 2015 from Nuclear Blast. The art work was created by Brazilian native Marcelo Vasco who worked from ideas given to him by Tom Araya and Kerry King. Slayer has always been carefree when it comes to offending people, as I’m sure most of us recall “God Hates Us All.” There is bound to be a firestorm of arguments and media surrounding the artwork in conjunction with the date of the release as well being 9/11. We personally like the art work and think it is very tasteful and a classic Slayer move.

Repentless

Repentless

Imagery has always been a key ingredient when it comes to Slayer. The art work, stage show, symbols and everything shocking that goes with the band is just as important as the sound. All those things combined make Slayer what they are. We can’t wait to hear the album!
