Accept release their new live package, 'Restles And Live', on January 13th. This will not only include the entire show that Accept played at Bang Your Head!!! Festival 2015 on Blu-ray/DVD, but also two live CDs with different recordings from their most recent European tour.

You can find full details of 'Restless And Live' right here and in the meantime, the Teutonic Titans have released the final taste of te package, 'Fast As A Shark [Live]'.




Nashville-based psych-rock quartet All Them Witches have released a new music video for '3-5-7', the second track to be revealed from their forthcoming album 'Sleeping Through The War', due via New West Records on February 24th.

Following the lead single, 'Bruce Lee’, ‘3-5-7’ was directed by Robby Staebler, drummer of All Them Witches and artist and photographer in his own right. Speaking of the video, he explains: "All beings suffer. One of the goals of being alive should be to understand the causes of suffering. For me this video is about perspective and the process of self-realization. Once you begin to see yourself around you and in others, realizing you are a part of everything, even things that you despise, is something you have to swallow and move toward understanding so you can properly adjust.

"Remember that one song about that one dude who reached for the stars too soon? One of the most important and inspiring things I've heard is, 'In concentration I will place my mind. For those whose thoughts are slack and wandering are caught between the fangs of their own afflictions'. Or something like that. Those afflictions become everyone's afflictions. The cycle continues. The suffering continues. Learn to focus, you can do it! I am focused. Eye in focus."




After ten successful years with Nuclear Blast, British progressive protagonists Threshold have signed a new contract and extended their partnership with the label. Furthermore, they have also announced plans for their next release. They are currently recording their eleventh album at Thin Ice Studios in England, a new concept album that will be called 'Legends Of The Shires' and it is scheduled to be released later this year.

The band have also announced the dates for the 'Legends Of The Shires' Tour 2017 and these include a one-off UK date at London's O2 Islington Academy on 10th December. Richard West comments: "It's great to be announcing these tour dates so soon, we can't wait to get on the road and perform for you. Our new album is coming together perfectly, we've got a lot of strong material so it might be our longest one yet."

Dates are:

28th November: Bosuil - Weert
29th November: Hamburg - Markthalle
30th November: Berlin - Lido

Sweden's Pain, led by multi-instrumentalist and producer Peter Tägtgren, just revealed a new video clip for the title track of their current album 'Coming Home'. The clip includes filmed material from Pain's latest world tour, directed by Zoran Bihac.

"He was following us for a few gigs on the Europe tour, filming and kept some great pics - enjoy," said Peter Tägtgren.




Kreator have released the second video trailer for their upcoming album, 'Gods Of Violence'. Kreator mainman Mille Petrozza talks about the working with producer Jens Bogren, the featured guests and the album's production process.

The band recently announced an exclusive release show on January 26th at Musik & Frieden in Berlin, Germany. Tickets for the show can't be purchased but won. All you have to do is mail to godsofviolence@kreator-terrorzone.de and send us a pic or video of you and your ticket for one of the shows of the Gods Of Violence Tour, hitting Europe from Feb 2nd till Mar 7th. The coolest contributions will be rewarded with an exclusive invitation. Deadline is January 10th 2017.




Progressive rock and Metal with a slight pop flavour are entwined into melodies on Heartache's new album, 'Skyscrapers And Firefalls'. Heartache have already cut their musical teeth with the release of the EP, 'Apophis' and 'Skyscrapers And Firefalls' is out now on Sliptrick Records. It's is a concept album that sees a man, an emblem of his time, living in the trap of social isolation and technology's non-reality. Here's 'Breaking News'.




'E Street' is the latest single to be taken from Beaumont's critically acclaimed debut EP 'Nothing', out now via Reclaim Music. The band are currently holed up in the rehearsal room working on their hotly anticipated follow-up record. Commenting on the track, frontman Spencer Edwards says: "Seeing as 2017 is probably going to be mankind's last year on planet earth, we're super excited to announce that we're going to spend our last 365 trying our best to reach as many ears as possible.

"'E Street' is a collective favourite of ours and we're super excited to share this video with everyone. It was filmed in an old (still functioning) bingo hall in Blackpool. As for the rest of the year we're heading into the studio to record our second EP and so far it stands head and shoulders above our debut."




Southern California Metal veterans Leatherwolf have announced the addition of guitar virtuoso Joey Tafolla of Jag Panzer fame to the line-up. Tafolla replaces Greg Erba whose last show with the band was last summer at Germany's Bang Your Head!! Festival. He joins original members Michael Olivieri and Dean Roberts, long-time bassist Patrick Guyton, and lead guitarist Rob Math.

Leatherwolf have been confirmed for this year's 80s Metal extravanganza, Hair Metal Heaven, which is set to take place August 25th to 27th at O'Riley's in Hull, England. Full details are right here. Here's 'Spiter' from last year's Keep It True XVIII.




Overtures, Temperance and Truck Me Hard undertake a co-headlining European Tour in early 2017: 'The Earth And The Artefacts' European Tour comes in support of the latest albums 'Artifacts' from Overtures, released in May 2016 by Sleaszy Rider Records and 'The Earth Embraces Us All' from Temperance, released in September by Scarlet Records).

After two European Tours supporting Almah and Secret Sphere in 2013 and Threshold in 2016, after having shared the stage with Rammstein, Saxon, Powerwolf, Stratovarius and many others, Overtures are joining forces with Temperance for their first headlining tour in Europe. 1Check out Overtures' title-track 'Artifacts' live during the SpazioRock Festival in Italy l;ast year.




Italian alternative band Down The Stone released their first full length album, 'Life', on December 16th and have now released the single 'Walking In My Shoes'. Singer Lorenzo Ricci told us: "'Life' is a song I wrote through a tough time. It is linked to the loss of a loved one and to the regrets for the moments you won't share with him anymore. But, at the same time, it is a song full of energy and hope, because it represents the transition to a new life. The idea behind this song and all the other songs on the album is believing that everyone must face adversity with courage. You should be ready for change because at the end of the tunnel there is a rebirth."




Forever Still just recently finished their huge European tour with Lacuna Coil and have released a new video, showing a haunting acoustic version of their latest hit 'Miss Madness' with lead singer Maja Shining on the piano. This special version of the rock ballad is available as a bonus track on their latest album 'Tied Down'.

Maja told us: "We want to start the year by saying a big and heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported us in 2016 by kicking off 2017 with a video for the acoustic version of 'Miss Madness'. We hope that you'll enjoy it and that 2017 will become a most wonderful year for each and everyone of you."




Animus Mortis have released the video for 'Testimonia', the title track of their 2016 album. The band told us: "'Testimonia' is a piece that's immersed into the transcendental and abstract. It tells about experiences of profound meditation and the way we travel around several levels of conscience, through different vibrating states; such as REM or psychedelic ecstasies. It's centered on the vibration, where we can see reality as a simple manifestation of it."




Finnish Metalcore group Moonstrux have released a new music video for their track 'Malice'. Inspired by horror movies, the music video tells a story about kids who wander between two worlds, destined to capture worthless people to their world and then force them to face their dark past. A gate to the alternative world has been opened and a message from the shadows has been delivered.






Nuclear Blast Entertainment have signed ruminant Arkansas progressive doom quartet Pallbearer for the territories of UK, Europe, Australia & New Zealand. Pallbearer commented on the signing:


"We are very excited to be working with Nuclear Blast on this record, as so many of the bands that have helped to shape our own artistic pathways have before us."

Monte Conner, Nuclear Blast Entertainment president adds:


"Pallbearer continue to evolve and scale new creative and sonic heights with Heartless. I am very honoured to be working hand-in-hand with the band, Profound Lore and Oblique Artist Management, and look forward to Nuclear Blast playing a key role in exposing new fans to this incredible band."

Pallbearer can also reveal that their highly anticipated forthcoming third album, titled 'Heartless, is due for release on 24th March.


Black/death commando Totalitarian have now released a video for 'At One With The Poisoned Seed'. This is the third track from their forthcoming album 'De Arte Tragoediae Divinae# which will be released in early 2017. As disturbing as the music, the video is bound raise reactions.




New Device have announced that they have signed a multi-year management deal with TMR Band Management and are preparing for a new release in 2017. Singer Daniel Leigh said: "We have definitely attended the School of Hard Knocks and graduated with flying colours! But hell, we love rock'n'roll and still have a bag full of songs in us that we think should be heard. Peter at TMR BM seems to know his stuff and we like what he has done with other bands, so we are ready to go again and can't wait to play up and down the country in 2017 and see where it takes us. We are just four guys that love to play in front of a crowd and that's just what we intend to do."

TMR BM boss Peter Keevil said on signing New Device: "I love these guys, they are fighters that know how to write a cracking hook-laden rock tune. They haven't had the breaks but that hasn't deterred them and that's half the battle in this day and age. I love that spirit and you see that every time they play."
