Dark Sarah is a music project by Finnish Metal band Amberian Dawn's former vocalist Heidi Parviainen. The new album, 'The Puzzle', is a concept album and it continues the story from the debut album 'Behind The Black Veil'. 'The Puzzle' tells a story of Dark Sarah who has been send to an island where the banished souls live. To get off the island she needs to solve the puzzle and find three keys.

Dark Sarah's music combines Metal, film music and theatrical elements. On 'The Puzzle' album, Dark Sarah's thoughts are best depicted in the dialogues (duets) with the guests: Fate: Manuela Kraller [ex. Xandria], Evil Siren Mermaid: Charlotte Wessels [Delain] and Dragon: JP Leppäluoto [Charon, Northern Kings].

Just take a listen to this!




As Lions have announced their debut full-length album, 'Selfish Age', which will be out January 20th via Better Noise Records. 'Selfish Age' is the follow-up to As Lions' debut EP, Aftermath, which was released earlier this year and is an illustration of the band's mission to create "the biggest, baddest hard rock we could, and on an almost cinematic scale." The album contains eleven tracks, including 'Aftermath', 'Deathless', 'Bury My Dead', 'World On Fire and 'The Great Escape'.




Mother's Cake have a new single, 'The Killer', which is taken from their album 'No Rhyme No Reason' which is out on 27th January 2017. 'No Rhyme No Reason' is the Austrian psych/prog trio's third album after 'Creation's Finest' in 2012 and last year's 'Love The Filth' and they've supported AC/DC, Iggy Pop, Deftones, Wolfmother, Anathema, Pentagram and Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group this past couple of years.




German thrash titans Kreator have released the music video for the title track of their upcoming album, 'Gods Of Violence'. This is the gruelling, uncut version of the video, if you dare to watch it.



'Gods Of Violence' will be released on January 27th via Nuclear Blast Records and will be available in various lavish formats. The album is now available for pre-order and you can do that, and see Kretaor's upcoming UK tour dates right here.


Experimental noise/rock duo OvO who will release their new album, 'Creatura', on 9th December and have shared 'Eternal Freak' from the record. OvO have explored the possibility of intersections between extreme rock and electronica, digging deep down, and now they come out with this protean birth which renders them once again uncategorizable. See what you think...




As previously announced, Armored Saint are releasing a new live album on February 24th (digitally on December 16th) called 'Carpe Noctum'. Having toured with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, The Scorpions and many other artists since their inception in the early 80s, Armored Saint have always been a highly regarded live act, not only in their hometown of Los Angeles, but also around the world. The only official release to capture this, however, is 1989s live album, 'Saints Will Conquer' - until now, with 'Carpe Noctum', which was recorded at the band's 2015 Wacken festival set, as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany. Here's 'Aftermath'.




Victorian-themed punk band band The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing have released 'This House Is Not Haunted', in advance of their biggest ever UK tour which begins on Thursday November 3rd in Exeter and continues until the end of the month.

The song, described by singer Andy Heintz as an "atheist ghost story" is inspired by the band's lifelong love of horror. The video was directed by Hannibal writer Tom Deville, and stars Hollyoaks' Neil Newbon, alongside Samantha Englebrecht as urban explorers who disturb a dark presence (played by Lisa Diveney) in an abandoned house. Director of Photography was Luke Bryant who has worked on Black Mirror and Drifters.




Epica recently released their new album, 'The Holographic Principle', which entered #22 on world sales charts and now the band are pleased to present their brand new lyric video for the track 'Ascension - Dream State Armageddon'. The footage for this video was shot at Epic Metal Fest Holland by Panda Productions.

Mark Jansen explains why they chose this song: "One of our heaviest songs on the new album: 'Ascension'! A song that works very well live on stage. Therefore we have picked this song to be our next project. I hope you'll enjoy this one! We have just kicked off our North American tour and we will play quite some songs of our new well received album 'The Holographic Principle' on this tour as well!"




Children Of Bodom have released a special lyric video for the song 'My Bodom (I Am The Only One)', taken from the band's latest studio album, 'I Worship Chaos'. On October 20th, fans were encouraged via social media to submit photos of themselves with the band for a chance to be in an upcoming video. Over 300 photos were selected to be featured in the 'My Bodom (I Am The Only One)' lyric video.

Alexi Laiho comments: "This is the coolest and my favourite lyric video by far because we actually had a chance to include COB fans from all over the globe in it. It’s the least we can do to show our gratitude, love and appreciation of the madness they bless us with night after night. I can’t wait to play the song live on the upcoming tours!"




Finland’s apocalyptic post punks Grave Pleasures (spawned from the internationally acclaimed, Beastmilk) release a new 7" EP, 'Funeral Party' this Friday 18th November, via frontman Mat McNerney's own Secret Trees record label. The 7" was self produced and recorded in Finland, but mastered by John Davis (Savages, Bat For Lashes, Lana Del Rey) in the UK.

Mat McNerney tells us: "We're surfing the apocalypse again and this time with the reverb button back on. Back to the new old sound and back to a Finnish line-up. Now we've returned to the bunkers and are handling some radioactive new material for the next album. The new stuff is a nuclear fusion of our Beastmilk past with Climax and the beast parts of Grave Pleasures' 'Dreamcrash' album. This new 7" is a small detonation of that new material and released in an exclusive way, to reward our fans for sticking with us."






Vangelis has announced the release on 3rd February of a new 13-disc box set entitled 'Delectus', featuring a chosen selection of his early discographic work. The mammoth collection will include all of his albums on Vertigo and Polydor, recently signed by Universal and remastered for the first time ever under the legendary composer's own supervision.

Presented in a lavish box with an essay and a plethora of rare photographs, the discs are housed in two die-cut, gatefold disc holders within a rigid 242mm square slipcase, and accompanied by a 64-page book illustrating a period of his prolific career of the iconic Maestro.

"I always welcome remastering my old work for two basic reasons," explains Vangelis. "Firstly, I get the opportunity to bring the sounds to today's standards, secondly, it gives me the chance to go through the experiences and memories of the time."

'Delectus' gathers together Vangelis' seminal albumsm, 'Earth', 'L'Apocalypse Des Animaux', 'China', 'See You Later', 'Antarctica', 'Mask', 'Opera Sauvage', 'Chariots Of Fire', 'Soil Festivities' and 'Invisible Connections', plus his collaborative recordings with Jon Anderson as Jon & Vangelis - 'Short Stories', 'The Friends Of Mister Cairo' and 'Private Collection'. The remastered originals will be complemented with rare B-sides and four previously unreleased tracks.




This year's Calgary Metalfest, held from September 14th to 17th, saw an incredible line-up that included Annihilator, the original line-up of Exciter, thrash veterans Razor and Sacrifice plus killer sets from The Exalted Piledriver, Toxic Holocaust, Gatekrashor, Disciples Of Power, The order Of Chaos and many more.

With all these performances over three nights in Alberta's largest mosh pit, the festival organizers are no strangers in giving back to the community, using the event since 2013 to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta.

This year's live charity auction, which is held in between band sets, had multiple offerings and bidding donors that lead the festival to raised its highest ever amount of over $7,000 to help the children. CMF organizers told us: "Thank you to everyone who donated and bid on all these items! We were able to smash our previous record from last year by over triple! Over $7000 was raised this year to Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta! This was huge for us! Thank you again to all involved in making this the best auction yet! See you next year!"




Arch Enemy have announced a new live DVD - 'As The Stages Burn!' It was filmed at Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany this year and was is the band's largest stage production to date. We covered this superb performance right here.

It all began in March of 2014 when the band announced new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz as well as the video for the album title track, 'War Eternal' which went on to become the bands most successful video in their career, surpassing twenty million views on YouTube. The release of the 'War Eternal' album also saw Arch Enemy reaching their highest US and German chart positions to date while going on to play over 200 shows in over 40 countries around the world. In late 2014, Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) joined Arch Enemy during the world tour with Kreator and in 2015 they played arenas as direct support for Nightwish.

The DVD highlights an impressive live production fans have never seen before! 'As The Stages Burn!' is scheduled for a worldwide release through Century Media Records on March 31st, 2017.


Ctulu return with their fourth album, presenting a total of eight songs filled with madness, hatred and despair. In their own words, the band describes the new output as follows: "We have been collecting pathetic disappointments for the last three years and now we have transformed them into hate."




'Violins' is the new video from British Metal band Voodoo Diamond and can be seen below. The clip was filmed, edited and directed by Rolling Vision in London. 'Violins' comes off Voodoo Diamond's self-titled and self-released EP.

The band has also announced through their social media the signing with record label Musicarchy Media for the release of their debut album in 2017. The full-length will be produced by Fredrick Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, Arch Enemy, Architects, Opeth and many more) at Studio Fredman and will see the light at the end of the summer 2017.




Here's a post-black Metal release featuring musicians from Elderblood, KZOHH, Khors and Ulvegr. It's the self-titled debut album, from GreyAblaze from Ukraine, the side project of Astargh from Elderblood, also featuring drummer Odalv (Elderblood, KZOHH, Khors, Ulvegr) and guitarist Helg (Ygg, Khors, Ulvegr).

All music and arrangements are by Astargh, all lyrics by Helg and it was produced by Astargh and Helg.




A few months after the release of their soon-to-be-acclaimed second full-length album 'The Violent Mystical Sukuma', French 70s heavy-psych rockers Domadora just unveiled a new trippy live studio video of the opening track from this effort, called 'Hypnosis' and recorded at Louvre Auditorium in Paris.




One-man horror themed project Temple Of Demigod was formed in Yerevan, Armenia to play symphonic black/death Metal. In late 2014, Mark Erskine, a guitarist/songwriter of Ghoulchapel, decided to create his own project; after coming up with a name and style, highly influenced by bands such as Behemoth, Emperor, Dark Funeral, The Wicked, Crionics and Vesania, maybe not lyrically, but definitely musically.

Moving from standard anti-religious, Satanic themes to more conceptual, mystical and horror inspired lyrics, Mark has found his inspiration in Lovecraftian stories, and the next desire was to write and record new stuff for the first full-length album, and make it conceptual from the beginning to an end. 'The Great Old Ones' is an absolute journey into the realm of supernatural horrifying beings crafted by Lovecraft.




Dayshell released their Spinefarm debut, 'Nexus', in October and the band have now revealed the video for 'Low Light'. "This song is not the norm for Dayshell," said frontman Shayley Bourget. "'Low Light' takes a different approach with the meaning. Basically, it's a fantasy between a guy and a girl. The guy always had a thing for this particular girl, but knew she was a wild cat. But when they both finally let their guards down, things get serious in the bedroom and basically... Well, just read the lyrics for yourself. As far as the music video concept goes? We just wanted a classic performance video. No cheesy story plot. Just us Dayshell boys rocking out in style."




Following three European tours in 2016 alone, Nashville-based psych-rock quartet All Them Witches will return with their new album, 'Sleeping Through The War', via New West Records on February 24th, 2017.

Lead single 'Bruce Lee' is a perfect distillation of their aesthetic - whirlwind guitars, way out vocals and propulsive rhythms that recall Springsteen's late-night power drives as much as they do Kyuss riding into the blood-red sunset. Speaking of the new video, director Jason Staebler says: "'Bruce Lee' is about anxiety taking hold of and following you indiscriminately. The video is meant to represent that idea, the consuming nature of your worries, and the magnification of them in your mind. The creature in pursuit is the personification of your anxiety, who can overcome and control your fate if you let it."




A Killer's Confession, the new project of former Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis, have released a new lyric video for their debut single 'A Killer's Confession', featuring as guest Korn guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch. The song is taken from the debut full-length LP 'Unbroken', due out on February 17th 2017 via Megadeth bassist David Ellefson's EMP Label Group.

Additionally, A Killer's Confession have announced their first live show, December 17th at Cleveland's AGORA, with special guests Dead By Wenesday.




Echoing the sounds of In Flames, Dark Tranquility and At The Gates, Montreal explosive melodic death Metal titans Decadawn are ready to 'Take You There' with their new music video. The song is from the band's 2014 debut album 'Solitary Confinement' featuring ten blistering assaults that includes guest vocals from Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates) on the release's title track. The album was produced by the band with mixing done at Fredman studios (Sweden) by Henrik Udd (Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquility).




Brutai have now unleashed their second video single for 'Never Change' which clearly demonstrates their natural ability to shine - (with the help of some UV lights!).

Alex Lorimer (vocals/keys) says this about the song and the video: "We're really excited to bring you our latest single, 'Never Change'. This song is about the bad traits we possess in life, and the way they can consume you if you don't open up about them. It is about progressing towards a stage where we can open up to others in order to heal and turn a new page."




The Jokers release a brand new single, 'Silver City', with B/side 'Summer Time', taken from their highly-acclaimed third album, 'Hurricane' on Steamhammer/SPV. 'Silver City' was recorded at Liverpool's Parr Street Studios, where it was produced, engineered and mixed by Tom Size (Aerosmith, David Lee Roth, Journey, Steve Miller Band, Huey Lewis, Mr Big) at the Tomland Studios, San Francisco. The band are thrilled to premiere the song’s exiting new video, with the single being released on Friday, 18th November.

Guitarist and vocalist Paul Hurst explains: "'Silver City was actually a town in California in the 1800s which was a goldmine and people went there to find their fortune in the same way as in this song: 'going down down down to Silver City'. In today's terms, people go to Hollywood, Las Vegas etc. looking for their fortune. The video captures our journey rising from the bottom up to the top: a journey we're still on now. The girl in the video illustrates an actual journey to a destination, with will and determination in her soul."

'Silver City' is currently playlisted at Liverpool FC's home ground, Anfield, where the song gets played at half-time to crowds of 52,000.
