January 2015


My Ransomed Soul discussed with us about themselves and their debut efforts not that long ago. Since then, they have released more works, played shows, toured and continue to do this never ending cycle of creating music. Thus they are upon their latest efforts to date called "Trilateral". In which frontman vocalist Brendan Frey talks of it and the plans for them in the future.


1. Introduce yourself; tell me what you do in My Ransomed Soul.

Brendan: My name is Brendan Frey and I am the vocalist and lyricist for the band.

2. What's the story behind "Monarch" and why was it chosen as a single and video?

Brendan: “Monarch” was written about the over reach of government control into the lives of individuals. I believe that this is a growing problem not only internationally, but in the United States as well. It's far too easy to develop a blind sense of patriotism. There is nothing wrong with having pride in your nation or culture, but there is no excuse for ignoring the corruption that exists within the powers that be. The song is prompting listeners to take a look at the current system with a skeptical eye and to ask tough questions. If there is anything I want to do with my lyrics is to get people to really think. We chose "Monarch" as our single because we felt it embodied the overall feeling of "Trilateral".

3. What's your favorite song on the album right now?

Brendan: It would most likely be a toss-up between “Monarch” and “Mockingbird”. In my opinion these songs are two of the most aggressive tracks on the album.

4. What's your take on "Trilateral" as a whole?

Brendan: The album really reflects a lot of my own personal views about politics, human nature, and spirituality. These are topics that I am extremely passionate about. Musically the album is very aggressive and straight forward. I believe it has a feeling of raw energy while maintaining a polished sound.

5. Is it important for you to paint visual pictures with the songs?

Brendan: To an extent, yes. I want to get people thinking with every song. It's not so much a visual depiction but more of a push for people to think about tough topics.

6. What would be the cinematic equivalent of "Trilateral"?

Brendan: I really can’t think of a cinematic equivalent. I feel like some of the music would fit great in a politically themed movie.

7. How has the band’s sound evolved from "Falsehoods" to "Trilateral"?

Brendan: I think we really focused a lot more on song structure this time around. "Falsehoods" was like the foundation for us finding our sound while "Trilateral" was an opportunity for us to solidify our ideas. "Trilateral" has a much more aggressive and passionate vibe overall. We also were album to resume working with our producer Chris Galvez. I think having a chance to work with him again made for a much more naturally experience since we already had developed a working relationship during "Falsehoods".

 8. Was your songwriting and recording process any different than usual for this CD?

Brendan: We spent a lot more time writing the songs on this album than we did on previous albums. When we recorded "Falsehoods" we only had two months in order to meet label deadlines. Since this was a completely independent project we had more time to just focus on being creative. Our producer Chris Galvez also was a lot more hands on this time around. He was really instrumental in helping us perfect the sound we were looking to acquire.

As far as the recording process, we actually recorded the whole album in my basement. Chris brought his mobile recording setup to my home and turned my basement into a studio. We recorded day and night for about two weeks. After we finished tracking and editing we sent the recording sessions to Brian Hood at 456 Recordings for reamping, mixing, and mastering.

9. Did you get the album you wanted? Is everything on there or were there some things that were just impossible to pull off?

Brendan: We are actually extremely happy with the outcome of the album. We ended up cutting a few songs in the end but we are happy with the material that actually made it to the album.

10. Is there any story or concept behind the title "Trilateral"?

Brendan: “Trilateral” is related to ancient symbolism, secret societies, and its connection to ruling powers throughout history.  If anyone does a little bit of research on the term they can get a general idea of the concept behind it.

11. Is it a concept album?

Brendan: Trilateral is not a concept album, but instead covers a wide variety of topics including politics, human nature, and spirituality.

12. What are your expectations for the CD?

Brendan: We consider this to be our best material to date and would really like to be able to share it with as many people as possible.  We expect to reach a larger and more diverse audience with this release.

13. What are your upcoming show and tour plans?

Brendan: We are actually doing a short weekend tour with In Dying Arms in February and various other shows booked from now through April.

14. Anything else you’d like to say or promote?


Brendan: It’s not easy self-releasing an album and we really put a lot of time and effort into this release. Any support, even in the smallest way, can be extremely helpful.  Please make sure to pre-order the new album at myransomedsoul.bandcamp.com.


Hirax has released a new video for the song "Hellion Rising". HIRAX vocalist Katon W. De Pena comments on the making of their new music video for "Hellion Rising" from the album Immortal Legacy:

 "The new HIRAX video "Hellion Rising" is a visual thrash metal experience. We filmed on location in the historic Battery Bunkers built in 1942 hidden in the hills of San Pedro, California.  This is our second video directed and produced by Donovan Vim Crony. The scenery is the perfect backdrop for HIRAX's brand of intense thrash metal.  No green scenes, fake production or props were used in the making of this high definition video / film. The release will coincide with the announcement of our upcoming European tour / concert dates 2015.  We are very excited to hit the road again and play our music for all the die hard, European, thrash metal maniacs!"

After their last release "The Gift Of Life" (2013) and a tour which led them through all Europe, USA, South Africa and Russia, the Dreamshade boys are now back with a new and powerful single entitled “Dreamers Don’t Sleep” and a new tour!

The track, produced by Dreamshade & Jacob Hansen, will be digitally released worldwide on March 2nd 2015 through Japan's Zestone Records and it will be presented with a new video directed by Andrea Todaro.

Fernando (Guitars, Vocals, Songwriting) comments: “Dreamers Don’t Sleep will give you a little taste of the new sound we are currently experimenting in the studio and it represents for us a bridge between “The Gift Of Life” and what our new chapter will be like."

Kevin (Vocals) comments:  "We always want and love to add new elements to our sound:  This single is very positive and energetic. We want to dedicate it to all the "Dreamers" who are supporting us everyday.

Dreamers Don’t Sleep is an invite to never give up on your dreams and to stop having fear of what you may not accomplish, because you could seriously regret it one day. Dreaming is what makes us alive and real, it's a very personal experience. Each of us is a Dreamer is his/her own way and has fantasies, ideas and thoughts which are stuck in our hearts and minds. We are shaping our Future everyday: it's about choices, big or small, we all make along the way."

In the music scene no matter the music genre at hand, artists and bands come and go in the every changing world of evolving music. In the case of metal and it's scene of go getters like Antagonist, who have been around for quite sometime as it is. Have been doing their thing for a while now and have most recently been writing and recording for a Self-Titled EP release out soon. Plans to follow of course with shows and perhaps touring as well. Frontman vocalist/guitarist Carlos Garcia and drummer Orlando Garcia or "Lond" discusses the band's past, present, and future.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Lond: We started in my garage in Whittier, CA early November 1998, Carlos had been jamming with Marcus Hill (bass) and David Zamora (guitar) so when I came in the picture the original line up was solidified. Shortly after David was no longer in the band and it wouldn't be until late 2002 we would fill the 2nd guitar slot with Matt Lopez, not long after Marcus was replaced by Paul Salem, we recorded 2 albums together and in 2009 Roland Leonard and Nick Reyes joined us on guitar and bass, respectively.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Lond: Our original guitarist David suggested the name, it was one of his vocabulary words for English class, we dug it, sounded punk, sounded metal, it just sounded perfect.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Lond: We are based out of Whittier, CA east of downtown Los Angeles, when we started in '98 there was no local scene we knew of, eventually enough bands came around and we had a strong scene in Whittier during the peak of Skateland a local skating rink that would host local bands, they tore it down sometime around 2004 or 2005, after that we never had a solid venue (Red Cross, Moose Lodge, Studio Danza, Green Tuetle, Fenix 5-4 RIP) but plenty of amazing bands are from the area: Exmortus, Infinite Death, Plague Vendor, Unscarred, Zombie Eating Horse just to name a few.

4. How would you describe your style?

Lond: We have always been a metal based band, that's what brought us together, Carlos and I have lots of roots in punk and hardcore, so naturally we are directly influenced by both styles, we've been called "Metalcore" but I would say hardcore influenced metal is more accurate.

5. Who are your musical influences?

Carlos: Anything before the year 2002, seriously.  I grew up with all types of music playing in my house, from traditional Mexican to early 90s alternative to gangsta rap, and then discovered punk rock and metal with the help of some older neighborhood kids when I was like, 9 and 10 years old. You can't limit yourself.  But at the same time, there is tons of music out there that is pure shit.

6. What are your songs about? (What specific themes do they cover?)

Carlos: They've always been about social issues, social injustice, racism, questioning our leadership, calling out institutions like law enforcement, politicians, Christianity, religion in general.  Of course there are a lot of personal themes, inner turmoil, personal demons, stuff like that.  Especially on the new EP, we've really focused on the social aspect.  There's still some really personal stuff in there, I'm actually calling myself out a lot, being as blatantly honest about myself and the stuff I struggle with daily.  But the social aspect is what we're focused on the most.

7. Do you write your own songs? (Discuss the songwriting process in detail.)

Carlos We've always been an original band, since day one we've been writing our own songs, and even now we're already writing new music (besides the EP we just finished).  The process is different every time around, but usually Roland and I will come up with some riffs or a sort of skeleton of the song, bring it into the rehearsal space and just jam it out with the others.  Lond and Nick throw in their suggestions, we tweak the songs, continue playing them and they just naturally evolve.  We'll try them out live before we've recorded them, and they get tweaked even more after that.  

8. Why are you no longer signed with Prosthetic Records? Are you in search of a new label or will you be taking the DIY approach?

Carlos: I'm actually not exactly sure why. We got dropped but I think it was due to our inactivity after our last release "World in Decline".  We were still booking tours on our own, and we just weren't making enough money to live and pay bills so we had to come home, get full time jobs.  And of course once that happened, we couldn't really tour anymore.  It happens, some bands could make a living off this life, a majority can't.  But we still love writing and playing music and we'll continue doing it until we can't anymore.  Whether it's DIY or if another label wants to put out the new EP, we haven't really decided yet. We definitely wouldn't be opposed to a label helping us release it, though.
9. What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?

Carlos: Well, we could only hope they dig us or are interested in us.  We've always been pretty selfish in the sense that we write music for ourselves and we just hope other people dig it, too.  Not to be too big headed, but I think we've always been a solid band.  We're hard workers and we never take anything for granted.  If you offer us a show, we'll probably play it.  We just love playing music, getting up on stage and giving it our all every time, whether it's in front of 10 people or 1000 people. We wouldn't still be a band after 16 years if we didn't love doing it.  We're like roaches, we'll never go away!  And I think we've always been really honest, we're just music fans that got lucky enough to play music ourselves.  We've made tons of friends with fans, promoters, people in the scene just because we've always been no bullshit. I think that mutual respect is so important and has really helped us throughout the years.

10. How would you say the mixing and studio time went for this EP?

Carlos: We decided to record our new EP with an old friend of ours, Rollie Ulug.  He did our "Samsara" EP and "An Envy of Innocence" album years ago, and we always had a great time recording with him.  When we decided we were going in a new direction with the music, he was the first person that came to mind.  We wanted to really strip everything down, much shorter songs, less melody and more riffing, simpler songs in terms of structure.  Basically, we wanted to take it back to our punk rock/hardcore roots.  We wanted it to be really fast and aggressive and in your face, and Rollie is a guy who really gets that.  So when we got in the studio and he heard the songs for the first time, he was immediately as stoked as we were to record.  This time we spent a bit more time on tracking vocals, which is something we've never done before.  As far as mixing, we trusted Rollie to make it sound rad.  He sent us various mixes over a few weeks, we'd send him notes and he'd tweak the mix according to that.  After about 3 mixes, it was done, and now we just want to put it out there!

11. It's been five years since the release of "World in Decline". Why such a long time period between releases?

Carlos: Like I said before, we were a bit inactive after we released World in Decline.  We did a long tour with Wretched and Diskreet, and we came home and realized we weren't making ends meet. And we were burnt out, which doesn't help.  So we've been home, working our jobs, one of us had a baby.  I went back to school, and that program took about 2 years.  We were still playing shows, writing a little bit.  But finally around a year or so ago, we buckled down and started coming up with ideas, then the writing came, and now we have the EP.  I hate to keep bringing it up, but after being in a band for 16 years, sometimes the spark isn't always super bright.  We did our own things for a while, but the spark really came back and we're really proud of the music that's come from it.

12. How would you say the new EP compares to your previous records?

Carlos: We really stripped things down a bit.  Took away the melodic side and just wrote a lot of riffs.  Again, we were trying to keep it simple and go back to our roots.  We didn't have to try so hard to make it pissed off, there's enough going on in the world and in our communities.  So lyrically, the songs pretty much wrote themselves.  If you've followed us for a while, you'll definitely be able to tell the difference.

13. Can you say how many songs will be on it?

Lond: 6 songs total.

14. Are there any surprises or any collaborations on the EP?

Lond: I think the whole EP is a surprise to all our friends and followers that have stuck by us over the last few years since we've done anything relevant, we actually have my good friend and Zombie Eating Horse band mate on a guest vocal spot and our buddy Rollie who produced the EP rips a chaotic little piece of shred on a track also, I'm stoked on it.

15. What will this EP be called and will there be a concept to go with it or is there a concept to deal with it's title?

Carlos: The EP is self-titled, "Antagonist".  We tried to stay away from the self-titled thing before, but I think this time around it's very fitting thematically.  And actually, there is a loose concept to the EP.  Basically, when I first started coming up with rough ideas about what I wanted the EP to be about, I thought of the idea of a man writing various journal entries about things in his life that led him to where he is now.  At the end of it, you realize he's been institutionalized and he's writing these entries in his cell, room, whatever you want to call it.  Then I realized that's pretty much the plot to "Catcher in the Rye," hahaha.  Which makes sense, it's one of my favorite books.  I even threw in a JD Salinger quote or two in there, haha.  So I went that route, started writing about issues that really affect me, that make me livid, but also issues that we as a band feel are important.  And there are some personal demons I talk about in there, too.  So, it's not a "proper" concept album, but it's the closest we've gotten so far.

16. Could you describe the EP's artwork and who designed it?

Lond: We have yet to touch on artwork, we have a few ideas and a few people in mind to help us, create what it may be but nothing official at this moment.

17. Have you been road testing any of the new material? If so, how have audiences reacted to the new material?

Lond: Definitely, after 5 years without any new material, we took the songs to the stage almost immediately. At our most recent show we played the whole EP front to back and it was one of the best reactions we've had in a really long time, especially for our new material, the songs are meant for a live setting, lots of energy and aggression.

18. When can we expect the new EP to be released?

Carlos: We're not exactly sure when we're going to put it out.  We have a few things to handle first, and then we'll probably put a song online.  We haven't decided whether to release it ourselves or to have a label put it out, so we'll see what happens.  Either way, we hope to post a track within the next month.  We'll keep everyone posted on social media (facebook, twitter, instagram).

19. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Carlos: We're just going to continue to play shows as often as possible, get all our ducks in a row for the release of the new EP, and we'll see what happens. We're already writing new songs, so the writing will continue as well.  It's been a while but we want to get the ball rolling again, and I think we still have a lot left in the tank.

20. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Anywhere heavy metal albums are sold should have Antagonist in stock (i.e. iTunes, Google play, Pandora). Make sure to follow us on social media (facebook.com/antagonistmetal, instagram.com/antagonistmetal, twitter.com/antagonistmetal), where we'll be updating frequently about the release of our upcoming EP!


Finnish progressive death metal outfit BARREN EARTH, now reinforced by Faroese native lead singer Jón Aldará, have just launched the title track of their highly awaited upcoming third full-length. The album will be entitled "On Lonely Towers" and will be released via Century Media Records on March 30th, 2015 in Europe and March 24th, 2015 in North America.

Bassist Olli-Pekka Laine comments: "During the writing process of the album, we did many things from a totally new perspective. If there ever was a certain pattern in a basic Barren Earth song, this time we consciously tried to think things differently. Many other things changed too, some of them unintentionally, some of them willfully. A new production team, a new front man, a new record label... The list goes on.

With the first song representing the album, we make no exception. Instead of putting out a song in a typical verse-chorus form, we thought that this 3-piece boulder would stand for the album better. It demands some concentration from the listener, but patience is rewarded in the end! So there you are, the title track of the upcoming album, On Lonely Towers."

Vocalist Jón Aldará adds: "On Lonely Towers can be considered a centrepiece of the album concept; stringing together the different storylines from the other songs, uniting the main characters and finally bringing a sense of hope to their struggles. It is also the song which inspired Travis Smiths beautifully crafted album cover."

"On Lonely Towers" was mixed by Petri Majuri and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios. The artwork was created by no other than Travis Smith.

BARREN EARTH managed to build up an excellent reputation with only two albums: Their debut "Curse Of The Red River" (2010) and its follow-up "The Devil's Resolve" (2012) have already solidified the band as one of the most promising upcoming acts of the genre and now they are at the ready to release another milestone in their career, taking the experimentation and heaviness to even further heights.

Check out the song HERE.


HIM's drummer Gas Lipstick has left the band, after being a part of it for the past 16 years. He's stated that "No drama, bad blood or any negativity". Adding on that “With a heavy heart I’m announcing my departure from a magnificent band. It has been a journey that I will remember for the rest of my life. I simply feel that it’s time for me to move on as a musician.”

He admits he’d noticed during their last tour that he wasn't as committed to the band as he’d been in the past. “I've always played every note straight from my heart,” he says. “If my heart feels it’s time to let go, I have to listen because otherwise it wouldn't be right towards myself, the rest of the band or the wonderful fans.”

He thanks the other members of HIM, their crew, management and supporters, and adds: “I've started to feel that I'm missing writing again. I would like to pursue my own musical interests. I hope that our paths will cross again eventually and you can count on that I’m going to keep you posted about my future endeavours.”

The band says “Shellshocked yet determined, HIM are currently investigating different ways to imitate the sound of drums with machines.”


Behemoth: Devil's Conquistadors by Łukasz Dunaj serves as the definitive BEHEMOTH biography. The book, officially blessed, or rather damned, by BEHEMOTH, serves as an in-depth look at the history of the events that materially influenced the band. As Dunaj points out in the intro, this isn't, "Poland's response to Motley Crüe's biography The Dirt." Simply put, Behemoth: Devil's Conquistadors is the story of BEHEMOTH, their music, their ultimate rise to the upper echelon of metal and becoming a household name in their native homeland, Poland.

 A 490-page, hardcover tome that is being released by Metal Blade Records in February, Behemoth: Devil's Conquistadors includes quotes and anecdotes from current and former members that provide context and details in addition to the author's narrative, plus interviews with Tomas Krajewski, Rob Darken, Graal, Havok, and more. The artistically presented pages are splattered with old photos of the band, flyers, lyric sheets etc. Pre-orders are available now at metalblade.com/behemoth, and include a bundle with an exclusive shirt available ONLY with this pre-order. The passages below serve as previews of the book.

 From the foreword by Krzysztof Azarewicz: "If, as a cultural anthropologist, I were to point to a single cosmic force which BEHEMOTH's music expresses, I would name it not Satan but Dionysus. A deity that represents not only the intoxicating influence of cosmic energies and earthly benefits, but also their benevolent healing properties. A deity of strength and pride. A deity of creative might."

 Nergal discusses the acquisition of his first electric guitar: "The first communion was a very important moment for me. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it's true. Of course, not as a religion experience - I didn't understand anything and couldn't care less. Same as all the other kids. We all stood there with our votive candles and waited for one thing. Cash. The first communion must be one moment when you get the most money you're ever going to get as a child. And for this money, I bought myself my first electric guitar. Not a bike, no Legos - a guitar."


 Aurora World Inc. another manufacturer and distributer of toys and for these guys gifts too. Aurora threw it out there about re-releasing the Hasbro brand My Little Pony in a more stylish and sparkly fashion, including the mane 6 ponies i.e. Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Rarity. This time these plush toys were more show accurate than their previous releases. At least I thought so and surly fans could probably agree on these re-releases being a more suitable fit.
 
In this case Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie, of the mane 6 were sent out and into the hands of me of course. Getting these was quite the eye catching experience, when popping them out of their boxes and bag containments. The plush just as the previous line, have the same type of fabric for the bodies, including the eyes, and other facial features, whereas the hair is the main attraction source. The previous hair was molded out into the hairstyle as opposed to this hairstyle being more real hair. Not human hair but hair you can actually brush with a hair brush. As you would any other My Little Pony branded toy with that type of hairstyle. Expect these one's do have an added bonus! That being that their hair is sparkly and shines in the light and not in the light, with it also being so colorful and bright!

Each of the mane 6 ponies for instance is really captured as they would be in the actual TV program. The styling is precise, making it more interesting and fun with that shiny and sparkly additions. Like for the three out of the six received, you can tell the details are there, Rainbow Dash's color tones, her wings, it's all there, and these ponies do stand on their own, whether they'd be the 6.5 inch or larger 13 inch models, either one hits the cutie mark spot on. Get it? Oh and each pony of course features their cutie mark on just one side of the pony but it's just as detailed as possible! Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie are just as Rainbow Dash is in that they resemble their TV counterparts just right. Making these plushies huggable, enjoyable, and just plain old fun! Or in this case fun sized that perfect on the go method!


Aurora World Inc. has done an outstanding job with their plush line of toys and brand promotion and will surly continue to do so ever so further. Expect these to go for around $8 for the 6.5 inches and $30 for the 13 inch sized ponies. Also be on the lookout for other characters including one's they most recently released in their previous but surly re-release form soon enough, i.e. Doctor Hooves, Vinyl Scratch, and Derpy with more to follow. Be sure to not miss out on these before they trot away!


September Mourning have been hard at work, since last speaking with them in 2012. Since then they have gone on to get signed, written all new material for their new album, plans to play shows and go on tour are in the works, plus much more in the making! September Mourning's frontwomen herself September, does the dialog discussion.


1. Let us get started by filling in our readers as to what the band has been up to in the past year.

September: It's been a bit of a whirlwind. We were signed to Virgin Records and then put into the studio to record the album. We went in with Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance). We finished it all up and started working on the live presentation. We are about ready to release the story of September Mourning into the world of the living, and cannot wait till it all comes together.

2. How did you and Virgin Records come together? Are you pleased with what they have been doing for you thus far?

September: They loved the story line multimedia aspect of the project and after seeing a showcase, we were signed. We are very hands on with our project, the success of something this big will be directly derived from the hard work that we put in.

3. Did the record company interfere with anything on your "sound" and songs?

September: They had their ideas. As an artist it's important to reach beyond your safe zone. There are some songs on the album that do that.

4. You will be releasing a graphic novel series that will tell of the band's story, is this graphic novel the same series as the one you had mentioned of being a comic book series back in 2012?

September: Yes it's been in development for years we wanted to do things in tandem with each other so that everything would come together and make sense sometimes you have to be patient for that to happen so it happens the right way.

5. Your new song and single for "Children of Fate" tends to suit the fan base's namesake, why did you think that calling your fan base this name would suit them so well?

September: It  all comes from the development of the storyline which will be unveiled soon ;). It fits that... and I believe we all have the potential to decide our own fate.

6. Can you tell me the story behind that song "Children of Fate" why was it chosen as the leading single? Will you be releasing an official video accompanying it?

September: It's actually not the leading single it's just a song off of the album people throw around the word single everywhere but technically it's not.

7. What kind of "sound", production wise, did you have in the back of your mind, prior to entering the studio?

September: I wanted to combine all of my favorite influences together. and most importantly do what was best for each individual song. From alternative to rock to pop figuring out a specific way to creatively combine genres and make our own lane in alternative hard rock.

8. What was the recording process like this time around? Was there anything different that happened or was it the same old studio thing?

September: It was a bit different I was with a new production team and every time you go in with someone new there's a learning curve to how you work together.

9. Can you tell us how this album differs from the previous ones? What can we expect and what is the message behind it?

September: We've only released one album and that one was basically a bunch of demos we recorded on our own. This one is a produced, refined, studio album. The level and quality control is a lot higher. This album is a continuation of the journey of September Mourning on her story. It has a lot of different flavors within it that make it very interesting like the souls September collects, each song is very much an individual.

10. How long did this CD take to make from start to finish, recording-wise?

September: About 4 months.

11. What kind of input did the producer have during the process?

September: Howard watched over the process and sculpted the songs. He has a great team he works with that is very hands on.

12. Did the producer use any (weird) experimental miking and/or recording techniques?

September: Yes, but I'm sworn to secrecy. ;)

13. How does the album art relate to the music on the album?

September: We haven't decided on the final album art but I'm sure it will have something to do with the story of September.

14. Do you know how many songs will be on the album?

September: Either 12 or 13.

15. Have you picked out a title for the album?

September: Yes, but that again is still a secret. ;)

16. Will there be any special guests or special collaborations on the album?

September: There will probably be 2 we are working out the details now. :)

17. Are you pleased with the final outcome? (sound - production wise).

September: Yes, I think it is a multidimensional piece of art and I learned so much as an artist making this album.

18. Are there any "crazy" behind the scenes anecdotes from these sessions that you can share with us?

September: We did a lot of late night sessions together with the programmers and that was a lot of fun just a lot of silliness. We all got a long really well.

19. What does this album mean to you all? If you had to pick "one" word to describe it that meaning.

September: It's Thematic. It stays true to its source and weaves a musical story around the characters.

20. What is in the future for September Mourning? Any shows or tours on the horizon that we should know about?

September: We are playing at Rock on the Range this year and will be touring before that. Keep checking in with us on our social media sites for dates!

21. Any last words for the friends and fans out there?

September: We appreciate all of those who are taking this journey with us and cannot wait to bring September Mourning to life for you all!


Over 1300 J-Pop and anime fans hit Sin City to celebrate anime songs with a massive lineup of legendary performers on the opening weekend of the 2015 ANISONG World Tour - Lantis Festival at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

AIRBOURNE—unswerving champions of the hard rock cause whose spectacular global success, live and on record, has consistently clenched a fist for the genre as a whole— have signed a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.
 
Driven by a formidable "Work hard, play hard" ethic, and keen to entertain on the grandest of scales, this award-winning quartet, formed in regional Australia in 2003, have been proudly walking the rock 'n' roll path since their early teenage years, inspired by the music's great and glorious past, yet determined to move things forward on a wave of blurred limbs and boundless energy.
 
Led into action by brothers Joel and Ryan O'Keeffe, vocalist/lead guitarist and drummer, respectively, the lineup is completed by David Roads on guitar and Justin Street on bass. The four have spent the past 10 years establishing themselves as a true force of nature: living on the road, selling out major venues, charting albums and appearing on bills with some of rock's most legendary names, from Iron Maiden to the Rolling Stones.
 
With Airbourne, everything is to the hilt, which means that frontman Joel O'Keeffe is as likely to be climbing the lighting rig or going "walkabout" in the venue as positioned behind the mic; it also means that their three studio albums – Runnin' Wild (2007), No Guts. No Glory (2009) and Black Dog Barking (2013) – are home to some of the most rousing rock anthems of the past few years.

Songs like "Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast," "No Way But the Hard Way, "Live it Up" and "Runnin' Wild" itself comprise a body of work that hasn't escaped the notice of AC/DC's Angus Young, who was recently asked in an interview what he thinks of modern rock music, saying, "I see it as healthy, because there’s newer stuff coming through. I really like Airbourne."
 
Since the release of Runnin' Wild, a silver record in the UK, Airbourne have notched up an impressive array of international facts 'n' stats. These include Top 20 chart entries, No. 1 Rock Chart positions, awards for Best Album and Best Live Act, numerous placements in video games and TV/movie outlets, plus key spots at the biggest festivals around the world, the likes of Wacken and Rock Am Ring/Rock Im Park in Germany and Sonisphere and Download in the UK, with Sweden Rock, Greenfield (Switzerland), Hellfest (France) and Graspop (Belgium) already confirmed for 2015.
 
Now, with sights set on absolute world domination and Album Number 4 likely to be released later this year, Airbourne have joined forces with Spinefarm Records in a new global deal that sees Spinefarm partnering with Universal Germany's Vertigo imprint for the German-speaking markets.
 
"We're pumped up to have signed on the dotted line to the world's toughest and truest hard rock label, Spinefarm. We have worked with some of the guys on this team in the past, and we're extremely confident about having each other's back in the trenches for many hard rockin' years to come. We're chompin' at the bit to get ROCKIN' and KICKIN' ARSE in 2015 and beyond.” – CHEERS from Airbourne.
 
Says Spinefarm General Manager Worldwide, Jonas Nachsin, who previously worked with the group as Roadrunner President, "We are so proud to be the new global home for the amazing AIRBOURNE! They are a band who have thrilled audiences around the world with their insanely energetic live shows and wildly anthemic songs, and all of us at Spinefarm are excited to be part of their ensuing juggernaut."
 
Daniel Lieberberg, Senior Vice President, Universal Music Germany, added, "Germany, Austria and Switzerland have always been strong markets for this unique band. We’re excited to closely collaborate with Spinefarm Records on our mission to bring Airbourne to a new level in our part of the world."
 
2015 finds Airbourne perfectly placed to take things to a new level everywhere, building on their passion, hard graft and heady achievements, and bringing along an ever-growing army of fans for the (white-knuckle) ride; and one thing is for sure, there'll be no resting on laurels…

Ask Joel O’Keeffe about his days in college, and his response neatly spotlights "The Airbourne Way":
 
"I drove by the college on the way to a gig,” he recalls. "This was in the early days, all the gear was in the back of the van. I planned to stop off and pick up the diploma certificate, but in the end, I didn’t bother. I didn’t want anything to fall back on, NO Plan B… I knew what I wanted to do, I was committed to Rock 'n' ’Roll, so as far as I was concerned, it was and still is all or nothing."

Raise the flag for Rock 'n' Roll.

Death metal has intense vocal skills depending on the precise style and vocalist at the mic. In the case of Post Mortal Possession with their EP release "Possessing Entity", this release has their vocalist bringing the death metal style up front and centered, by allowing it to have more of a pig squeal effect than a deep guttural growl effect. This doesn't mean the vocals are bad to the ear but more of an easy listening experience. The vocals ganging up with the instrumentals, like the guitar riffs, and drumming all collide together, ganging up on each other. Like take songs like "Suspended By Nails", "Death March", and "Visceral Butchery", these provide that exposure and experience. Allowing the listener to hear the music but enjoy it more easily, while they bang their heads. One other act that is brought to mind that sounds a lot like these guys would be Terminally Your Aborted Ghost. All in all Post Moral Possession's EP is one easy listening experience.


Dark rock n' rollers MurderFM are back on the scene with all new material! They have a new album coming out with a single to follow called "Lethal Lovers". Touring and show plans also in the works with just getting their name ever so further in existence! Frontman vocalist, guitarist, Norman Matthews, discusses the new material briefly, but covers a wide range of input on the NAMM convention. A music based trade show where all of the world's largest and smallest acts gather to party, talk, and make a deal!


1. Introduce yourself, who are you, and what do you do in the band?

Norman:  I am Norman Matthew, singer/guitarist of MurderFM and the second cutest member. Actually I am probably the fourth outa four but it's all good haha!

2. Let us get started by filling in as to what the band has been up to in the past year?

Norman: Man! We have been killing it thanks to our awesome fans! I know that sounds super cliché, but we have a crazy cult following similar to HIM. That the band is doing really well. We did the Rob Zombie tour, Fozzy with Chris Jericho tour which was super amazing, Avatar tour, Lacuna Coil, The Pretty Reckless, Five Finger Death Punch,  I mean the year was just crazy for us! Now we're getting ready to release our new album in April, announce our new signing, so it's been awesome!  It's just like tour, tour, tour, no record, that one single and video "We The Evil" it just took off for us, thanks to you and Revolver Magazine and other outlets, so thank you.

3. You are currently at NAMM's seventh year run, for those who may not be familiar with NAMM, what can you expect?

Norman: Yeah the NAMM convention is a huge trade show filled with lots of retailers, Gibson, Fender, Blackstar Amps, it's an only industry only, but there are people who get in through friends, family, retailers, etc. The artists treat them right ya know? A lot of autograph signings, I got to do something with Tommy of KISS, which was pretty awesome! It's a huge convention, with people from all over the world, it's like a yearly excuse to party!

 4. Have you been to NAMM before? Does each year differ from one another or is it the same ordeal year after year?

Norman: This is my fifth year being here probably. I brought my little brother with me during my first year here, so we wanted to check out everything! We wanted to try and meet people, go to the autograph signings, get the hook-up, it was just too much for a few days. Now it's cool, doing interviews, appearances, we now have our own career, just walking the halls, saying hey. I've been stopped by people, taking pictures, saying hey, it's just great, seeing how things change and our band is a Cinderella story.

5. Why did you want to go to NAMM this year?

Norman: This year, we kind of had too. I would have come anyways haha. But this year was business, letting everyone know who we are and what we have planned with the new album, industry, just showing everyone our thing, since we're off running around here and there now. It's California, you got to come out and see the industry and your friends.

6. What are you looking out for while at NAMM?

Norman: This year, a lot of press, build up, release cycle, I was able to check out some new stuff, Blackstar AMPs, some new recording software, which I use at the Sound Foundation, so a lot of new things going on. I am hoping to run into Nikki Sixx again, that'd be cool because he's always here.

7. Who have you run into while at NAMM?

Norman: I've run into my friends from the UK The Defiled, I walked by Stevie Wonder, Bono of US, the thing I did with KISS was cool. The dudes from Megadeth, it's so weird walking down the hall then see Dave Mustaine, asking if I can use the sink in the bathroom too haha. It's cool when bands acknowledge us as a band and us them.

8. How does one get to attend NAMM?

Norman: You got to be a baller haha. You have to know someone in the industry or work in the industry to get access to it. But you can come by and check everything out, see who pulls up in what, who's hanging out front, it's cool.

9. What is in the future for Murder FM?

Norman: Our new record comes out in April, with our new single being "Lethal Lovers", some of the best stuff I have ever written and a favorite of mine. We'll be shooting a video for it. We're going to add some bonus content to the album's release. Our drummer is the drummer of Wednesday 13, so they're out on tour for now, then we'll be out touring and doing shows.

10. Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Norman: I definitely want to do the cliché fan shout out. We have done 0 marketing dollars into trying to make this band happen, it has all been done by the fans, magazines, we're doing it on our own. You should be proud, take pride, in who we are as MurderFM and who they are because without them we wouldn't be here.


Road warriors 3 Years Hollow continue to build their following the old fashioned way - taking their live show to the people - as evidenced by a month and a half worth's of US tour dates, which will see the band sharing the stage with RED and Islander. The tour will kick off on February 21st at the Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY, and will wrap up on March 29th at the Silo in Abilene, TX.

"We're very honored to be hitting the road with RED in February," says 3YH's singer, Jose Urquiza. "I first started listening to them when I heard the song 'Breathe Into Me.' Then I got really deep into their album 'Until We Have Faces.' It's a massive record. So this is a pretty great feeling to be able to share the stage with these guys. We also toured with Islander recently and I love those guys, so I'm looking forward to hanging with them again for a month."

"A lot of the cities on this tour are stops we haven't been to in a while, so I'm excited to see our fans and friends again. It's exciting man. We're heading into our 3rd year of touring, so most of these experiences are still pretty new for us. We love getting to know the music lovers that make it possible for us to live this dream."
