Buckle up for the brand new song 'The Will To Potency' from Krisiun, from their upcoming album 'The Great Execution', which will be released via Century Media Records on October 31st in Europe and November 1st in the US.

The track perfectly captures the band's renowned sonic brutality, but at the same time displays epic mid-tempo passages that add a new edge to a classic set up. You can listen to the song below.

'The Great Execution', produced by Andy Classen at Stage One Studio once more, is the band's 8th studio album and musically expands Krisiun0's trademark high speed death Metal violence with a heavily increased amount of diversity ranging from extreme tempo variations over distinct rhythm patterns to clean guitars and even Flamenco parts!

Krisiun only used analogue gear and instruments this time to avoid the compressed sound that so many musicians produce today. This wise decision resulted in a more organic sound, with the songs on 'The Great Execution' possessing both warmth and rawness, which are so often lost through digital production.

'The Great Execution' will be available as a limited edition digipak including a re-recorded version of the classic Krisiun song 'Black Force Domain' as bonus track, as 180g gatefold vinyl and as a digital download.

Krisiun's next European live executions will take place in 2012! Stay tuned for dates!



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
