We wanted to prove you don’t need a bunch of tricks to writing good songs,” says lead guitarist Daxton Page. “I feel ‘Run Away’ was a direct reflection of where we were musically and personally at that moment in time.” Continue reading

Folk-Metallers FROST GIANT Release “Curse of Doubt” From Upcoming Album! [Track Stream]

Inspired by Norse mythology, epic metal, punk rock, and combined with an American hardcore attitude, Frost Giant drops an icy hammer on everything trendy and weak. Formed in 2005 in Philadelphia, PA the band is comprised of Matti Frost on lead vocals, rhythm guitar, Scott Breustedt on lead & rhythm guitar, Ty Asoudegan also on lead & rhythm guitar, Armen Koroghlian on drums and Brook Duer on the bass, and backing vocals. The 3 guitar lineup adds a great sound to the band that is reminiscent of old school power metal. The music pays no attention to boundaries, deliberately crossing genres and bringing them all together in one truly unique sound. From the mead-hall sing along choruses to the shredding melodic death metal passages laced with tortured growls and screams, from the pounding double bass to the pop-punk riffs that linger for days, Frost Giant’s music journeys through stories and lore, bringing to light the tales of old in a modern folk-metal context.

IRON MAIDEN Release New Beer To Support Armed Forces Charity

Metal and beer share an intimate bond, just like your customary combo dose of nachos and cheese, popcorn and movies and many other inseparable flings. It rather shares such a level of belonging to each other that German thrashers TANKARD are credited for inventing the term “Beer Metal”, thanks to their love for the fermented magic potion. If you’re at a metal fest and you’re not cracking open a cold one with your lads you’re not really doing it right!

So keeping in mind IRON MAIDEN‘s Trooper beer success and attempting to recreate the craze of another heavy metal beer, the metal legends have teamed up again with Robinsons who were also responsible for Trooper’s feat. This time it’s a light version with alcohol content much less than the Trooper, a unique golden English ale with a 4.1% ABV. Hence, “light”, and is named after the story of Charge Of The Light Brigade in the Crimean War. Continue reading
