30/10/2014 - ARMORED SAINT TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM

Veteran Los Angeles metallers ARMORED SAINT have inked a new deal with Metal Blade Records for the release of the band's next studio album, due in 2015.

"We have been with Metal Blade for the last three records now," ARMORED SAINT singer John Bush said during an appearance on the inaugural episde of the "Inside Metal" show with host Bob Nalbandian (see video below).

Bush, who fronted ANTHRAX between 1992 and 2005, and temporarily rejoined the group for a number of shows in late 2009 and early 2010 but stepped aside in May 2010 in order to make room for the return of Joey Belladonna, added: "[Metal Blade head honcho] Brian [Slagel] is awesome. Without Brian, there would, basically, not be ARMORED SAINT, quite frankly; there would not be a band. I mean, for him I think it's a labor of love. He's not looking to go out and buy a new house in Miami Beach with the revenue that he's gonna get from ARMORED SAINT. He does it 'cause he cares, and he wants it, and he believes in us, and he knows that he likes the music that we're making, and we're extremely honored and happy that he does that."

Regarding the progress of the songwriting sessions for ARMORED SAINT's next CD, Bush said: "We've been writing songs for about a year, a year and a couple months, maybe, and we're about ready to do drums.

"Everything's done a little differently these days, as far as recording-wise. But a lot of vocals have been already sung. And it's gonna be awesome."

He continued: "[Bassist] Joey [Vera] is gonna produce. He's just really coming into his own as far as a jack of all trades, and a master. He's awesome. He's a great writer. He's very, very meticulous in the way he does everything, and he gets the job done. He's written some great stuff. And we have an awesome camaraderie as far as writing together.

Bush added: "I'm proud of what we're doing, I think it's gonna be a cool record.

"We don't have a title yet, but it will come out next year, and then we'll do some shows."

ARMORED SAINT's new album will feature the following songs, among others:

 

* "Win Hands Down"
* "Mess"
* "Muscle Memory"
* "An Exercise In Debauchery"
* "In An Instant"
"Up Yours"

 

 


30/10/2014 - GENESIS DOCUMENTARY READY FOR RELEASE

‘Sum of the Parts,’ the Genesis documentary that adds more than half an hour of extra footage to the recently aired BBC retrospective of the band, arrives on DVD and Blu-ray Jan. 13.

 




30/10/2014 - IOMMI WRITES MUSIC FOR CSI TV SERIES

Legendary BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi has issued the following update:

"People have been asking what exactly I'm doing at the moment. Well, I'm getting back in the studio, having tried to make myself rest after the tours. I'm writing, mostly just putting ideas down rather than complete songs.

"I like to create all sorts of moods with my music and then decide later how they might be used. One specific piece, though, is for the 'CSI' ['Crime Scene Investigation'] TV series that will be aired in the U.S. on November 2nd.

"I was asked if I'd be interested, so I had a look at the footage and came up with an idea they seemed to like. It's not very long, but it was different working with images rather than just music. I'd certainly be up for doing more."


29/10/2014 - HOW MUCH IT COSTS THE NEW STONES BOOK?

Do you like the Rolling Stones? Like looking at pictures of them? Have a lot of extra cash sitting around? Then you may be totally into a new photo book signed by the group that’s selling for $5,000.

The book, which is simply titled ‘The Rolling Stones’ (apparently a more elaborate title would have added a couple thousand to the price tag), features autographs by the four members of the band who are still around: Mick JaggerKeith RichardsRon Wood and Charlie Watts. So that’s basically $1,250 per signature if you want to look at it that way.

That said, the book does feature more than 500 photos from the band’s entire long career, including some that have never been seen before. Famous photographers Anton Corbijn, Annie Leibovitz, Gered Mankowitz and Helmut Newton all contributed to the project.

The limited-edition book, which will be published by Taschen in December, includes a forward penned by President Bill Clinton, essays, a timeline and more. Only 1,150 copies of the individually numbered books will be available, so keep that in mind while you contemplate ordering.

“This book isn’t just rock ‘n’ roll, it’s a roller coaster through 50 years of memory lane,” Richards declares in press materials announcing the volume.

The imminent publication of ‘The Rolling Stones’ has got to be a sore point for Kiss, who put out their own insanely expensive book just two years ago. No doubt the crafty entrepreneurs are kicking themselves now for not charging an extra $701 per copy of their photo book ‘Monster.’ Maybe they have a few left in the warehouse they can unload at the new price, just to stay competitive.

*********

Mε νικητές τους BLACK LEVEES από την Καστοριά, άνοιξε η αυλαία του BATTLE OF THE BANDS της Θεσσαλονίκης στο Eightball Live Stage, ενώ δεύτερη μπάντα, με μικρή διαφορά στην ψηφοφορία του κοινού, αναδείχτηκαν οι ONE STEP CLOSER.

Η επόμενη Μάχη των Συγκροτημάτων διεξάγεται την Τρίτη 28 Οκτωβρίου, με τη συμμετοχή των ANYWAY / MONDO BIZARRO / PLANET HOLLYWOOD, ενώ η βραδιά θα κλείσει με τους special guests VITAL SECRET, 2ους νικητές της περασμένης περιόδου.

*********

Λίγα λόγια για τα συγκροτήματα:

ANYWAY
Οι Anyway δημιουργήθηκαν το 2012 από τον Άρη Ξανθόπουλο (κιθάρα/φωνή) και τον Emanuel Lleshaj (πλήκτρα/φωνή) και από τότε έχουν κάνει ορισμένες εμφανίσεις, μεταξύ των οποίων και στο Battle of the Bands της προηγούμενης περιόδου. Πρόσφατα απέκτησαν άλλα δύο μέλη, τον Χάρη Κούλογλου (τύμπανα) και τον Γιώργο Κωνσταντίνου (μπάσο). Παίζουν διασκευές και δικά τους τραγούδια.

MONDO BIZARRO  
Οι Mondo Bizarro δημιουργήθηκαν τον Φεβρουάριο του 2013 στις Σέρρες, από τους Θεοδόση Λιθαρή (κιθάρα), Ανδρέα Τσιολαρίδη (φωνή), Γιώργο Σεραφείμ (μπάσο) και Κώστα Μιχαλακόπουλο (τύμπανα), για να τιμήσουν την μεγαλύτερη ίσως punk/rock μπάντα του πλανήτη, τους Ramones. Το πρώτο τους live στις Σέρρες ήταν θριαμβευτικό, με την μπάντα να λαμβάνει εγκωμιαστικά σχόλια, ενώ ακολούθησαν αρκετές εμφανίσεις, με αποκορύφωμα το opening act στον Paul Di’Anno στις Σέρρες και την εμφάνισή τους στο Eightball στη Θεσσαλονίκη με τους Garden of Eden.
Τον Ιανουάριο του 2014, δύο μέλη, οι Γιώργος Σεραφείμ και Κώστας Μιχαλακόπουλος, αποχωρούν οικειοθελώς για τους δικούς τους προσωπικούς λόγους. Ένα μήνα περίπου μετά, οι Mondo Bizarro, με νέα τους μέλη τον Κώστα Αχτσή (τύμπανα) και τον Γιάννη Μαλέα (μπάσο), συνεχίζουν να πανκ-ροκάρουν στη Βόρεια Ελλάδα (και όχι μόνο). Hey ho, let’s go!
http://www.facebook.com/mondobizarroGR

PLANET HOLLYWOOD
Οι Planet Hollywood αποτελούνται από τους Χρίστο Καλλιγκάτση (κιθάρα), Αία Χατζηβασιλείου (κιθάρα), Νίκο Μπούμη (φωνή), Δημήτρη Βασιλειάδη (τύμπανα) και Αλέξανδρο Παπαδόπουλο (μπάσο). Έχουν εμφανιστεί σε εκδηλώσεις των Εκπαιδευτηρίων Μαντουλίδη, σε φεστιβάλ της Γερμανικής Σχολής και σε εκδήλωση των προσκόπων Θέρμης.

VITAL SECRET (special guests)
Οι Vital Secret είναι ένα μουσικό σχήμα με ήχους της rock και blues σκηνής. Επιλέγει και ερμηνεύει τραγούδια που επηρέασαν καθοριστικά την εξέλιξη της εν λόγω μουσικής και όχι μόνο. Στους πρώτους μήνες του 2014 έλαβε μέρος στο μουσικό διαγωνισμό Battle of the Bands που πραγματοποιήθηκε στο Eightball Live Stage και κατέκτησε τη 2η θέση ανάμεσα σε 40 περίπου groups.
Τον Απρίλιο παρουσίασε μια μουσική διαδρομή στην περίοδο 1959–1969, σε αφιέρωμα στα 60’s στο Block 33. Την ίδια περίοδο στo studio του Εργαστηρίου Ηλεκτροακουστικής & Τηλεοπτικών Συστημάτων της Πολυτεχνικής Σχολής του Α.Π.Θ., έγινε η πρώτη ηχογράφηση με την τεχνική υποστήριξη του ηχολήπτη Θάνου Σμυρλή και την εποπτεία του καθηγητή Γεωργίου Παπανικολάου.
Τον Αύγουστο, οι Vital Secret παρουσίασαν ένα δίωρο πρόγραμμα αφιερωμένο στις δεκαετίες ’70 και ’80, στη Νέα Καλλικράτεια Χαλκιδικής. Από τα μέσα Σεπτεμβρίου, επέστρεψαν στο studio, με σκοπό την ενορχήστρωση και την ηχογράφηση της νέας και αποκλειστικά δικής τους μουσικής συλλογής.  
Στόχος πλέον είναι η αναζήτηση και ο πειραματισμός. Νέες μουσικές δημιουργίες παρέα με όσους η μουσική δεν είναι απλά μια συνήθεια. Οι Vital Secret αποτελούνται από τους Βασίλη Καρβούνη (κιθάρα / φωνητικά), Κώστα Καρβούνη (κιθάρα / φωνητικά), Χρίστο Σταματιάδη (κρουστά), Σταύρο Τσιμπραηλίδη (μπάσο), Περικλή Χαραλαμπίδη (φωνητικά) και Αχιλλέα Καλλίστρατο (φυσαρμόνικα / τεχνική υποστήριξη)

28/10/2014 - NEW SOUNDGARDEN COMPILATION
Soundgarden will release their long awaited B-sides and rarities compilation, Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path, on November 21st via A&M Records, including “Storm”, an old track the band re-recorded with Jack Endino in May.
Kim Thayil told AlternativeNation.net: “There’s a song that recently we were doing with Jack Endino, we recorded it a few weeks or a month ago. That was from the mid 80’s, we actually recorded that potentially to use it in some form, maybe a soundtrack or something. We recorded it just to see how it would turn out, we haven’t really confirmed how it’ll be used, but it’ll probably end up on a compilation of some sort, and I’d imagine that would then be included on a B-sides album.”

With an announcement on his personal website the sad news of one of rock's legends, Jack Bruce, death begun to spread. “It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.” According to English newspaper The Guardian the cause of death of Jack Bruce at 71 was a liver disease. Ginger Bake who played with him in Cream said: “I am very sad to learn of the loss of a fine man, Jack Bruce… My thoughts & wishes are with his family at this difficult time.”
