Strap on your assless chaps, and throw on some war paint…Manowar have a new live EP coming out soon.
The release features highlighted moments from the band’s “The Lord Of Steel World Tour” on a live EP, with performances from the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy, Russia and Sweden.
“From the first show in Zaragoza/Spain to the last show in Yekaterinburg/Russia, ‘The Lord Of Steel’ world tour was a terrific experience,” says Manowar bassist Joey DeMaio.
“Performing new songs for the first time in front of your audience is the ultimate test of the power of the songs to connect to the only people that matter. Our fans were totally brutalized and went wild as you will hear on this new EP. The Lord Of Steel Live is a thank you to our amazing fans; it will forever immortalize this tour and those who attended it.”
It’s been one of the worst kept rumors in metal, but finally, the confirmation has come in: Unearth are no longer free agents.
The band has signed to eOne Music for North America; Century Media will handle it in Europe.
“A new chapter has begun for Unearth as we have found a few new places to call home. By joining forces with eOne (North America), Century Media (Europe), Howling Bull (Japan) and 3Wise (Australia) we will have a more focused attack from some of the most well known and respected labels in the world,” says frontman Trevor Phipps.
Frankly, I’ve never been a fan. Not even one of their songs could I say I enjoy. Their painful; I keep expecting certain things to happen, only to be disappointed by the lack of ingenuity. But I am just one guy.
“We know this new beginning of sorts will bring bigger and better things for Unearth and our fans and we couldn’t be more excited for the future of all things Unearth.
“We are currently in the studio recording some of the most aggressive, anthemic and energized metal we have ever written and we look forward to unleashing it to you all when it is finished. Expect to hear more about our new album, release dates and future world wide touring plans later this summer.” Continue Reading This Post
Queensrÿche is out June 24 in Europe and June 25 for the rest of the world on Century Media.
As you’ll hear, “Founding members Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson, and Scott Rockenfield have returned to the quintessential Queensrÿche sound after 20 years of stumbling around and tolerating dicTate’s monarchical bullshit, musical drivel, and subpar saxophone playing.” Continue Reading This Post
The Devil Wears Prada announced something over the weekend.
That album they’ve been working on — sure to be an unlistenable pile of putridness — has a release date now.
The album has no title yet, that we know of, but the new Devil Wears Prada disc will, in fact, drop like a turd on September 17.
I can’t believe this band’s still together, and that people still listen to them. I mean…there’s so many amazing bands out there. With so many choices, why would anyone choose this? Continue Reading This Post

Death To Pay
Not a doomed blogger, although, after hearing Ed Barnard’s story, some might assume he’s doomed.
I hope if shit ever goes south for me, that some folks get together to auction off shit to help me. That’d be cool.
Ripple Music has announced the latest in their ongoing series of rare test pressing auctions for charity. This latest auction will benefit Barnard, founder of the long-running site, Doommantia.
“For those unaware, Ed had been forced into homeless by a medical condition but still manages to keep the Doommantia site viable online,” says a press release.
“Ed suffered a series of heart attacks that forced Ed to become unemployed. Those events, plus the exorbitant cost of cardiac medications, made paying the rent an impossibility and he was evicted from his place in Aberdeen, Washington.
“Now homeless, the doom and metal community has been rallying around his cause with benefit concerts and a compilation of 39 heavy bands that all donated their music to help Ed’s cause.” Continue Reading This Post
