1. Seattle’s RHINE have teamed up with Invisible Oranges for the premiere of the new track and fourth single ‘Dreaming of Death’ off their upcoming album ‘An Outsider’ due out on February 5th, 2016.

Commented vocalist/guitarist Gabe Tachell about the song:

“One of our most progressive and somewhat psychedelic songs, it’s about a fucked up nightmare I had.”

‘An Outsider’ is the follow up to RHINE’s 2011 debut ‘Duality’, which was first a solo effort by band founder Gabriel Tachell (guitar and vocals) whom is now joined by Alex Smolin on guitar (ex-Metameric), James Porter on bass (Ideofone), and Carlos Delgado (Inferion, ex-Death Crowned King) to collaborate on this project.

Seattle’s Rhine are seamlessly connecting German thrash metal with Swedish death metal much like their namesake, the Rhine River. The founder of the group Gabriel Tachell named it such for its simplicity and as a metaphor for fluidity and change.

4. Unbowed to release Dogma February 12th, 2016. With Dogma, the follow-up to Unbowed’s 2014 debut full-length, Collapse The World, certainly reflects the deeper meaning of the band’s monicker. The songs contained wiithin are eloquent, forceful, and wholly unyielding. The somber atmosphere of Black Metal is apparent whilst the band bludgeons into thick, suffocating Death Metal riffing. With your head already reeling, the band tears open the fabric of reality with soaring Orchestral and Symphonic elements that takes the listener from purgatory to paradise, all in the same fleeting moments. From acoustic guitars and grand pianos to choir ensembles and harps, this is a Metal release that pushes the boundaries of what an up-and-coming band can already be. On top of all this, the entire EP is self-produced. Written, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely by the two founding members.

5. Toronto, ON Canadian metal band CAYM announce they will hitting the studio this February and March with Joe Duplantier of Gojira to produce their new yet to be titled album at his Silver Cord Studio in NYC.

Black Metal newcomers WORMWITCH are offering their debut single for exclusive stream and download through Nefarious for 2016.

The new single offers a background to their transition from hardcore into Black Metal and touches on their Canadian influence from the infamous climate.

Nefarious Realm is streaming the single ( where you can also download the track.

“Coffin Birth is the first song that Wormwitch has written under its name, and is the truest culmination of the band’s vision to date. The standalone covers themes of death and rebirth and the constant struggle of man versus nature; wherein nature exercises its timeless power to cast the blight of mankind into the endless void.” – Robin Harris (guitar/vocals)

The band has offered this song for free to everyone and will be announcing the release of their EP later this year.

7. Canada’s epic metal quartet and 2015 Wacken Metal Battle Champions VESPERIA announce they will be entering Blue Sound & Music Studios in Toronto, Canada this March to record their followup to 2015’s The Iron Tempests EP.

For all details and to contribute, please visit the following link:

The band comments:

“With the new year comes much and more from the Vesperia camp! We have been labouring away diligently behind the scenes to breath life into what will be our largest and most ambitious project to date! But to realize our ambitions, we are turning to you: our dear fans, family and friends for help in this new endeavour.

We decided that a crowdfunding campaign made the most sense to raise the necessary funds for our new album while allowing us the opportunity to give back to everyone who has helped build Vesperia to what it is today! We have crafted some truly unique gifts, perks and experiences to make this an incredibly special adventure for everyone. We cant wait to show you what we have in store!”

9. Texas Metal Underground (TMU) Records have released their first ever free digital music sampler featuring one full mp3 song from their entire re-issued curated catalog releases.

TMU Records has provided the following mission statement:

Since 2008, TMU Records has been unearthing lost and unheard musical gems from the fertile underground Texas metal scene of the mid 1980’s through the early 1990’s.

To preserve and share this heavy musical legacy, the label focuses primarily on bands who burned bright, briefly, but disappeared without a trace before anyone could take much notice. Bands who managed to get a demo recorded but for reasons unknown never shared it beyond a close circle of friends and fans.

Whether on vinyl, CD, or cassette, all TMU Records releases are given lavish treatment with custom packaging, unseen photos, show flyers, interviews, informative booklets, rare bonus tracks and extras for the denim and leather die-hards.

For 2016, look for upcoming deluxe vinyl releases from Karion, Las Cruces, Bad Heaven, SSR, and more!

Podcast Roundup:
Just noticed that One on One with Mitch Lafon posted an interview with Kirk Hammett today. The episode is only 20+ minutes so that’s not a lot of Kirk time. Curious to hear that one.

Ritual Madness had the guys from Twin Town Tyrant records in for a chat and some tunes – I can’t wait to listen to that episode.

Talking Metal has at least one episode with the former co-host John Ostronomy back in the fold. I haven’t had a chance to catch up with most of my podcasts so I don’t know if he’s back for good, or back for one episode. So if you’re a fan of John, at least catch up with Mark at Talking Metal.

Eddie Trunk had a few great interviews lately – Leslie West, Billy Sheehan, Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick and a great interview with Glenn Hughes from Deep Purple, Black Country Communion, California Breed, etc. etc.

5. San Antonio, Texas based melodic hard rock band KARA AND THE DAM BAND have released their new video for the song “Shepherd” in December and it’s up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

Accoriind to Kara and the Dam Band vocalist Kara Stevens, the song “Shepherd” was inspired by her grandmothers passing. She states:

“No one really knows what lies beyond this life, yet the mystery and our faith keeps us in wonder and eager to witness something beautiful and my grandmother was very mush eager to see her shepherd meet her at the gate and call her name. The making of our music video was very important. After all, I wanted to make it very much like death….. Very mysterious….. having that fear of getting old…..but most importantly the rebirth from death into light.”

6. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based New Wave of Traditional American Heavy Metal band CORNERS OF SANCTUARY have released their new cd “Metal Machine” in Europe via Germany based METALIZER RECORDS and independently on their own throughout the rest of the world.
Metal Machine was recorded at Sanctuary Studios and Mixed at Magic Ears Studios in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by Corners of Sanctuary guitarist Mick Michaels.
The band has also released a new video for the song “Left Scarred” from this release.

7. Veteran New York heavy metal power trio THE RODS have re-recorded the song “Crank It Up” which originally appeared on their 1981 self titled album, as part of the album’s upcoming 35th Anniversary celebration.

David ‘Rock’ Feinstein, cousin of Ronnie James Dio and guitarist/vocalist for The Rods made the following statement:

“”CRANK IT UP”, what more is there to say? It’s kind of been our “motto” since day one. Thirty-five years later, we are still slamming our audiences with great powerful music. It’s amazing to see all the different generations singing along to this classic RODS “Anthem”. Call it “Rock n’ Roll”, or call it “Heavy Metal”, it’s meant to be played loud with a passion, and that’t what we have done for thirty-five years.”

The re-recorded song is available for purchase via itunes, Amazon and CD Baby.

8. Canada, having spawned extreme metal luminaries such as GORGUTS, CRYPTOPSY, BENEATH THE MASSACRE, BEYOND CREATION, and ARCHSPIRE, is once again poised to put brutal technical death metal on the world stage… with emphasis on ‘brutal’!

Enter Ottawa’s DEFORMATORY, who have set out to create a relentlessly extreme and unique sound with their sophomore effort, entitled Malediction. This latest slab of inhuman resonance fuses together classic death metal influences (Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.) and the band’s love for modern tech death.

Malediction is the first installment in a series of concept albums revolving around Saväel, the creator of Darkness, and the original source of pure evil. In Malediction, the story follows the discovery of the sacred incantation text, his re-awakening, and the subsequent obliteration of the Light, the Heavens, and all remnants of humanity. This is an album that will appeal to the nostalgia of old school death metal, delivered with a modern, dark and technical ferocity.

Malediction street date: February 5, 2016

9. EMP LABEL GROUP, the label founded by Megadeth bassist/co-founder David Ellefson, has signed an exclusive North American distribution deal with EOne Distribution, North America’s leading independent music and video distribution company.

Formed in 2015, EMP has already had Worldwide success with their first release, the debut EP from Phoenix all-female punk group DOLL SKIN, released as a joint venture with Megaforce and Cargo Records(UK), who has already received airplay on hundreds of stations around the World.

Says Ellefson, “We’ve had a great start with the Doll Skin EP, and the amazing partners we had in releasing it, and the reaction, Worldwide has been overwhelming. And what we have built since then is even more exciting. We have a full slate of amazing Rock and Metal releases for 2016, and it’s wonderful to be able to take it to the next level with an extremely committed and powerful partner in eONE.”

10. Power thrash champions SANKTUARY are returning in 2016 with their new album ‘Winters Doom’ to follow up 2013’s widely praised’Something Fierce’. Set to be unleashed on January 22nd, the Yukon warriors of the Canadian North have teamed up for the premiere and FREE download of their second single ‘Corpse Blockade’.

Bassist Cole Hume explains the track:

“A Necromancer summons the dead and forms a wall of corpses as his entourage. Moral of the story…don’t fuck with this Necromancer.”

Get your FREE download of ‘Corpse Blockade’ at the following link:

11. Our friends in Green Death are extremely happy to announce that the Ellefson Music Productions – EMP Label Group release of “Manufacturing Evil” will feature guest vocals from legendary death metal frontman, David Vincent on the track “Gates of Hell”!

The Tao Of Lemmy
“People don’t become better when they’re dead; you just talk about them as if they are. But it’s not true! People are still assholes, they’re just dead assholes!”

“The only interesting thing about religion is how many people it’s slaughtered.”

“Religion is stupid anyway. I mean, a virgin gets pregnant by a ghost! You would never get away with that in a divorce court, would you?”

“Apparently people don’t like the truth, but I do like it; I like it because it upsets a lot of people. If you show them enough times that their arguments are bullshit, then maybe just once, one of them will say, ‘Oh! Wait a minute — I was wrong.’ I live for that happening. Rare, I assure you.”

“Fuck god and fuck the devil and fuck the church too. I’m responsible for my actions. I don’t need to hide behind nothing. I did it….what I did.”

“As you go through life’s rich tapestry, you realize that most people you meet aren’t fit to shine your shoes. It’s a sad fact, but it’s true. A good friend is someone who’d hide you if you were on the run for murder. How many of them do you know?”

“I don’t understand people who believe that if you ignore something, it’ll go away. That’s completely wrong — if it’s ignored it gathers strength. Europe ignored Hitler for 20 years. As a result he slaughtered a quarter of the world!”

“I don’t think it’s fair to be waving your dick around when people are minding their own business and might not want to see it.”

“If you didn’t do anything that wasn’t good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous.”

“If you think you’re to old to rock n roll then you are.”

“If you’re going to be a fucking rock star, go be one. People don’t want to see the guy next door on stage; they want to see a being from another planet.”

“People have forgotten that sex is fun. It’s the most fun you can have without laughing. People have forgotten that. It’s all deadly serious. AIDS. You can get gonorrhea from a blowjob. So what? That’s the risk you have to take. If you’re going to have sex, fuckin’ have sex and be happy about it. Don’t be looking over your shoulder all the time. It ruins everything.”

“There was a magazine in England who said I screwed 2,000 women and I didn’t; I said 1,000. When you think about it, it isn’t that unreasonable.”

“People just rip each other to shreds over the years. Nothing kills a relationship like commitment.”

“You know the main thing in life is a sense of humor. Lose that, you’re done. You might as well blow your fucking brains out.”

“I don’t do regrets. Regrets are pointless. It’s too late for regrets. You’ve already done it, haven’t you? You’ve lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.”

“This entire generation seems to have become pussies, you know? Nobody seems to enjoy themselves much anymore.They are all knocking each other down for enjoying themselves.”

“Death is an inevitability, isn’t it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don’t worry about it. I’m ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn’t complain. It’s been good.”
