Five piece metalcore band LET THE WOLVES SPEAK have an all new video just released titled "Soul Purpose". But before this track was released their debut single was called "No Remorse", with an EP out and about now. But not only has the band released all of this content but is always recording demo's and what not. Shows will be following them between now into this next year as well. Find out what more is said from the band, as they discuss a lot in the discussion below.

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

It all started with the guitarist Alex Centeno and drummer Eric Payne jamming together, then slowly trying to build the band up to what it is now by meeting guitarist Austin Gower from playing in our local scene, and reaching to bassist Tommy lynch from mutual friends also with having vocalist Jacob Daniels as a childhood friend.

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

The origin of Let The Wolves Speak came from having these big dream catchers with an image having native people surrounded with wolves in guitarist Alex Centeno's bedroom, using that imagery and symbolism in relation to a message we felt strong about for anyone to not feel reluctant to freely express themselves.

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

Let The Wolves Speak is based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There's so many bands coming and going within the local scene but bands we'd like to recommend are Luca, It bleeds, These fading Visions, and Brain Wash.

4. How would you describe your style?

Melodic, aggressive, emotional.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We released a single in 2016, called "No Remorse" which was just to see how our sound would go. 2019 we released a new single called "Soul Purpose" and We're proud how it turned out and we hope anyone can take interest from it.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We do, we're always recording riffs and recording demos.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We have a show November 14th at the Rockstar Saloon, and more in the works for next year.

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

Just to really push our music out there for people who care and support, from playing live to promoting on all social platforms.

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

We're on Spotify, YouTube, iTunes, Pandora, Amazon, and Google Play.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We'd like for them to hear the passion that's put in our music, along with us also knowing and sharing with what anyone goes through.

Rockers THE GOLDEN LEAVES have released a few songs, with one EP as well, with an album underway too! With the band playing on and off, the band has plans to find things to get themselves settled in, so they can continue to rock onward! The band says lots more about themselves and their music as well.

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

David, the singer had a dream of being a rock star, so he met up with the two best guitarists he knew. Torleiv and Javier were easy to ask, but a drummer and a bassist was harder to come by. After a couple attempts we ended up with Christian behind the drum kit, he had played in a metal band so we had to calm him a bit. Arthur had to buy a bass guitar and re-school himself in order to join the rest of us. Now he’s a decent bass player, at least we say so, cause no one else wants to be a bassist, right? I think it was a week after forming Arctic Fox Recordings showed their interest, we didn’t even have a proper demo.

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

While there was a lot of good name suggestions before we landed on The Golden Leaves, there was also a lot of bad ones. We went from Royal Sons which would have been an embarrassing mix of two of the coolest bands there are, so Torleiv suggested Free Booze and Mary Johanna. We finally agreed that Javiers The Golden Leaves was better than all of the other names and just went for it.

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

We’re based in Trondheim, Norway. The music scene here is flourishing, a lot of good rock bands but also other genres. I want to mention hundreds but instead I’ll point you to our playlist «Secret Gems» were we put mostly nordic bands in. You could get frustrated listening to them and learn that they only have 50 other fans, they deserve 5000. This said with one exception, Combos, they’re assholes.

4. How would you describe your style?

That’s a hard one. We agreed to play rock and not to limit us anymore than that. You can listen to our songs and find that they are very different but I think (and hope) you can still hear that it’s us and anyone else. For the latest single «Rebel» we mix a brit rock feel with some of the Norwegian garage, I think it works pretty good.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

For now there has been released seven songs in total, among them one EP. You could expect to get at least one of them stuck in your head.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We are releasing an album in about a month from now, so yes absolutely. Follow us on Spotify, YouTube or whatever streaming service you like.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We have been playing a bit in Norway and since our fan base is mostly centered here we don’t want to stop. The UK has also been very positive to our music and we really want to make friends over there as well. Not to mention the rest of the world, but we will have to choose wisely. Playing in a band is hard work and doesn’t pay well, we hope we can come with some good news here soon. Stay posted.

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

Our dear drummer took the worst decision ever and went to Poland to study medicine. That puts us in a tricky position where we had to find a new drummer. Esten from Kings of The Valley is joining us for the first time this Sunday and we hope to get tight with him. Then we’re eager to show the world our music and play shows as mentioned, writing new material and having fun.

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

You could stream us about anywhere; Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, Amazon, Soundcloud or Tidal. We are currently setting up a website and printing up sweet TGL-merch. If you want to know the exact date this is available you should most likely follow us on Instagram or Facebook. If you don’t have neither you could send us an e-mail

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

That our music is fantastic you just want to lick our arm pits.

Modernized heavy metal rockers MEDUSA TOUCH have released an anthology album this past summer, with even more material set for the next album. But for the time being, the band will be playing a handful of shows this fall, promoting this current album, with more shows to follow in the next year! Find out what else was talked about below.

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

The band started in 1982.  Gogsy had just finished his time playing with punk Band THREATS from Edinburgh. He had started jamming guitar with his good friend Joe Gardner. Joe introduced Gogsy to MSG, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Saxon and instantly there was a keen interest in getting a band started. Twin guitars like Iron Maiden and Thin Lizzy was a great fit for Joe and Gogsy and the jamming sessions were definitely centered on this style.

At the same time but separately, Mike Murray and John Allison had started jamming drums and bass together. Drummer and bass player looking for guitarists, and 2 guitarists needing drums and bass. A marriage made in  heaven? Mike had placed an advert in the local music press and the 2 teams got together for a few jam sessions and it all started to gel together. Next a vocalist.

Colin was the last to join the band and the first line up was done. Next a name. Loads of options were tabled. Each member had their favorites, nobody agreed with the others, so a vote was taken. Everyone had two choices. Everyone's first choice was different but every second choice was Medusa Touch. That was it a band was born.

The band played together for about a year and a half from 1983 to end of 1984 when the first couple of changes came about. Joe found it difficult to commit his time to a band seeking success and dropped out. He was replaced by Colin Stewart who was a seasoned guitar player playing in local bands in Midlothian and around Edinburgh. The NWOBHM of the time was a lot heavier than Colin was previously used to, but he loved it. Around the same time John Allison left the band to be replaced by Lee. At the time John also played in a local band playing local clubs and weddings. They were an excellent band and had been on TV a couple of times trying to get  somewhere in their field. John needed more time to do that, so was replaced by Lee. Not long after Lee joined, it was obvious that Heavy Metal was not really Lees “Thing” and he needed to be replaced.

1985 seen the entrance of Craig Robertson on Drums. A great drummer, our drummer who could use double pedals. He wsn’t only a beast of a drummer, he was quite technical when he wanted to be. He added a great variety to Medusa Touch especially as the Thrash bands had just started to make a real

It was in late 1985 that Mike left to pursue and moved to London in search of fame. Medusa Touch tried and tried to find a replacement bass player but had no success. What do we do? ALL CHANGE. Colin moved onto bass, Gogsy took on guitar and vocals and Craig on Drums.

1986 the new look Medusa Touch hit the road. Now heavily influenced by the emergence of the Thrash bands but not a thrash band themselves. This 3 piece is probably the Medusa Touch that most people remember. This band played in this for till 1989. Still playing the rock scene around Scotland but never getting any interest from record companies of the day. The hair metal scene was in full flow at the time. Great music, but certainly not the Medusa Touch look.

Finally, Craig left to join another band and Gogsy and Colin enrolled John (Snoddy) Snodgrass and Mikey Hunter on Guitar and Drums. This line lasted another 2 years. The band never officially broke up, but just stopped playing.

2018 saw interest from George Arvanitakis, a NWOBHM maniac from Salmóni, Ilia, Greece. George asked the band if they were interested in releasing the recorded material that existed from days gone by. The answer Yes, and here it is.

The current Medusa Touch is a band that Gogsy has played with for the last 5 years, originally playing many tracks from the glory heavy metal days in the 1980’s. It was easy for these guys to fan the flames of the old Medusa Touch fire and bring out the tracks from back in the 80’s.

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

Its from the film of the same Name. It starred Richard Burton. Psychological thriller about a telekinetic novelist who causes disasters simply by thinking about them.

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

The band is from Edinburgh, Scotland. There is quite a descent scene in Edinburgh at the moment. There quite a lot of Metal/Thrash bands around at the moment but the ones in our 80’s Genre are few and far between. A really good 3 Piece band called Tergazzi are worth checking out.

4. How would you describe your style?

Definitely out of the 80’s scene but with a modern sound. People say they hear the Maiden, Priest, Lizzy, influences in the music. It definitely changes through the 80’s with the introduction of Thrash, Anthrax was a big influence in the late 80’s.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

ONR records has released the 13 tracks on our “The Anthology” album. That was released August 2019. I think they are all but sold out. At the last discussion with George at ONR he had less than 30 left.

The style is being really well received. We ave had a couple of superb reviews from and from Other reviews saying the same thing about great singalong songs with no filler tracks.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, we have another albums worth. We need to get out and tour the current album. This is set up for November 2019. We start with 4 gigs in Scotland then more from then on.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

See above. We have also been booked to play the 2020 Brofest UK festival in Feb 2020 in Newcastle, England. This is a 2 day NWOBHM festival that sold out within 2 days. The Managers then had to switch venue to allow a bigger gig to happen.

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

We really hope to get this kicked off and get a few descent gigs under our belt, that should get us the attention that we will need for the next album.

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

You can try and get the CD from ONR (If there are any left) -

The band still has a few left so drop us an email and we will sort you out.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

That the songs are a good bunch of singalong fist pumping tracks that stick in your mind.

Female punk trio THE DAMED just released their debut album, dealing with what else, a lot of numerous issues ranging on feminism, equal rights, and all things caused by our current President Trump and what not. So how else will the band discuss such matters, if not more than that with us! Find out the discussion on these matters below!

1. So why did you want this band to be a trio act instead of four or more?

A trio is more raw and vulnerable, just like our music.

2. How did the band get the name The Damed?

It's a feminist play on words of a well known band you might have heard of.

3. You released your debut album, but decided to title it after yourselves how come?

We were just being born into the music realm and wanted the songs to be more impactful as a whole.

4. What can one expect from your debut album?

Dark punk-ridden riffs offering release from this current state of political turmoil. And encouragement to always fight for injustice. Rocking out.

5. If you had to pick one track to show someone, who has never heard you before off this album, which would it be and why?

Pulse. It represents the extreme political side of the band while also being a social commentary. It's a blend of a few different punk styles. It sets an overall tone for the record.

6. Have any other plans set for the rest of this year that is 2019?

We're in the process of making 2 music videos that will be out in the next coming months.

7. Will the band be heading out on the road anytime soon?

We are planning a small west coast tour soon, yes.

8. Do you have any final words of expression?

Gun Control Now!

After much speculation instigated by two video trailers released earlier this summer, Slayer - Tom Araya, Kerry King, Gary Holt and Paul Bostaph - in conjunction with Nuclear Blast Records and Prime Zero Productions, announces "Slayer:  The Repentless Killogy" motion picture and companion LP/CD, "The Repentless Killogy, Live At The Forum in Inglewood, CA."  Coming November 8, 2019, the narrative short film paired with Slayer's entire performance of its August 5, 2017 concert at the Los Angeles Forum will be available digitally and on Blu-ray, and the soundtrack from that concert will be released as both a two-disc vinyl and two CD packages.  In addition to the standard black vinyl, eight limited-edition colored vinyl configurations will be available:  red, gold and silver vinyl, red/black & orange splatter, red/orange swirl, red/black splatter, yellow/red corona, and black/white corona.  Pre-orders can be placed HERE.  Check out the trailer for this special movie release HERE

Revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution.  The "Repentless Killogy" film was written and directed by BJ McDonnell, who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos - "You Against You," "Repentless," and "Pride in Prejudice"-  for Slayer's final studio album Repentless (2015). 

"When we set out to do these initial three videos," said McDonnell, "we had the intention of continuing the next adventures of Slayer and Wyatt on a following album. But, Slayer announced that 'Repentless' was the final album and tour, so this story, the videos, and finally a full live concert at the end is a perfect wrap up of the 'Repentless' final tour.  This is the finale of Slayer.  This is the end of the monsters."

The "Repentless Trilogy" motion picture opens with the three music videos assembled as one chronological storyline and introduces the narrative's main character, Wyatt, a former Neo Nazi associated with a gang known as "The Hand Brotherhood," whose signature mark was a bloody handprint left after a murder had taken place.  Prior to the first music video, Wyatt had left the gang after he fell in love with Gina.  The two had gone into hiding to escape his grisly past and start a family, but The Hand Brotherhood was not going to allow that to happen, and Gina, pregnant with their first child, was savagely murdered as Wyatt was forced to look on.  The film then segues into the present-time narrative that sees Wyatt on the run from law enforcement and the Nazi gang, but now dedicated to eliminating The Hand Brotherhood and seeking retribution wherever he can.

"The Repentless Killogy" stars many of the actors who appeared in the original video series:  Jason Trost ("Beats of Rage," "Hatchet III") as Wyatt, Danny Trejo ("Machete," "From Dusk Til Dawn"), Richard Speight ("Band of Brothers," "Supernatural"), Derek Mears ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), Jessica Pimentel ("Orange Is The New Black"), Tyler Mane ("X-Men," "Halloween !!"), Bill Moseley ("The Devil's Rejects," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2"), Caroline Williams ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2," "Sharknado 4"), and Sean Whalen ("Twister," "The People Under The Stairs"). 

Part two of "The Repentless Killogy" features Slayer's entire live set performed at the Los Angeles Forum on August 5, 2017, and was directed by Wayne Isham who has directed videos for artists including Metallica, Foo Fighters, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, and Britney Spears.  Presented in front of one of the most striking stage productions of the band's career, Slayer performs fan-favorites including "South of Heaven," "War Ensemble," "Mandatory Suicide," "Dead Skin Mask," "Raining Blood," and "Angel of Death."

Slayer will begin The Final Campaign, the last leg of its Final World Tour on November 2, wrapping its touring career up with two shows at The Forum in Los Angeles on November 29 and 30.  Those final dates are below.

Horror miss-mash that is COFFIN CAROUSEL is a band that has been around for a while now, releasing their debut album and sophomore album "Face Melting Chunky Stuff" on Friday the 13th! Thus forth, this Australian band will be one to cause horrific matters on their own terms from here on out. Frontman vocalist/guitarist Howard Von Noise talks of the new album, plans, and much more about the band's in lucky day that is F13!

1. It's been 2 years since the first and only time speaking with Coffin Carousel, so what has the band been up since?

HVN: Indeed it has, thanks for being so awesome and hanging out again. We have been busy, we have opened for Wednesday 13 and Michale Graves (ex-Misfits) along with some fantastic shows in Australia. I have done a small run of acoustic shows playing Coffin Carousel songs solo and exploring a more intimate expression with the bands material live. I also spent 10x days with Mitch Marlow (New Years Day, In This Moment, Pupa Roach) at his studio in LA back in December 2017 and wrote 3x songs with him which turned out to be an EP called Breathe we released mid-2018. Oh and making more music videos!

2. During that time you went on to release your album "Between Death and Dead", it consisting of 18 tracks, how does the follow-up album "Face Melting Chunky Stuff", stack up?

HVN: Well I have another 18x tracks to drop with ‘Face Melting Chunky Stuff’. I spent some time thinking more about the conveyance of this album as appose to ‘Between Dead & Dead’ which lyrically, I just let flow out from me as an expression from my intuition at the time. FMCS touches on some residual themes from BD&D lyrically, however I wanted to explore more horror themes in general and deliver a message of growth, strength and progression of the band’s sound to be a bold statement, stripping away any expectations from myself on what I felt it should sound like. I let it come alive over three years to be its own monster and just embraced who I am as a person from my own life experiences, what I enjoy, and a lot less concerned of what people think of the bands art. I feel it’s a 100% stronger album as far as the songs themselves and it works as a complete art piece from start to end.

3. Now would you say that this follow-up album, is a continuation in anyway to the previous album, in term's of imagery or story or anything within?

HVN: Yes it is a continuation of my character visually, and musically coming into a sense of mastery within myself in my creative expression to a form of originality I am very proud of. I showed myself a new side to me I didn’t know existed by allowing myself to be authentic 100% through the song writing process. Listening back to the mixes once they were completed, it really dawned on me what it was I had created with the songs as a whole. Up until that point I was just focusing on making the songs as cool as possible, it wasn’t until I was sequencing the track listing I stumbled upon an underlying theme of a character progression I wasn’t aware of initially, which from that point, then inspired me to conceptualize the cover artwork and the look of the packaging for FMCS. All the sounds that people who know the band for are still present, but now enhanced with a lot more production time I spent with my good friend Julian Renzo mixing the songs at his studio.

4. "Open Up Them Stitches", is a track taken from the album, made into a single and video, tell me about them?

HVN: That song was a standout to me along with Julian also who mixed the album, representing the energy and lyrical attitude the album showcases. It has a good classic Coffin Carousel song feel which made it a no-brainer to create a music video for also. I originally wasn’t going to make any music videos for FMCS. I initially wanted people and fans to just listen to the music only and allow their own visualization to play out to how they wanted to perceive it. However I have been working with a good friend Liv who is helping me with some PR for the album, and she recommended I do at least one music video to help her promote the album release…so I made a music video with another good friend Daniel Armstrong, which I have been wanting to work with for years on a music video for the band. I called in on some friends to creepy go-go dance for me and got the guys I have playing live currently all together and we had a fun evening shooting all the ideas and enjoying each other’s creative vibes. Working with friends, the way I like to work.

5. Will this album have any other tracks of choice to receive the same ordeal?

HVN: I have since decided I want to make a music video for the song  The Creepy Creepy. I have some ideas that have popped in my head since Open Up Them Stitches has been released. For this next video though, I would want to push all the horror visuals to the max. I am an independent artist so I want to embrace that freedom and not limit what people expect from me as an artist, or what industry people believe I should stick with along with anyone else who has an opinion on what I should do. I feel right in the headspace to go back to my horror roots for FMCS and push new limits for the band and myself from what Coffin Carousel has previously released.

6. Just like your last album, this one will also receive a Friday the 13th release date, so will this date be "the date" of choice for all Coffin Carousel releases?

HVN: It’s a fun idea! For full length albums I will have to say I do plan to stick to a Friday 13th release date indeed. Again, another awesome fact to remaining independent as an artist, being free to make the choice to do so. As long as a Friday 13th falls in the near future to when I have the next album completed and mixed. It will happen, no doubt.

7. Besides your own works, the band has done cover songs as well, but would you consider doing a cover from the film "Hocus Pocus", and the track "I Put A Spell On You"?

HVN: Hrmm, can’t say I would. I have chosen cover songs to record and release based on the inspiration they had in my musical development, or out of respect for an artist I wish to pay homage to. The same way Metallica, or Marilyn Manson have done so throughout their careers.

8. How does the band plan to celebrate Friday the 13th, not just the one in September but the one in December as well?

HVN: Possibly with a new music video and maybe a rad hometown show. If not eating some awesome vegan burgers and watching Evil Dead 3 Army’s of Darkness.

9. Do you ever see the band to go as far as possibly titling a future song or EP or album after F13?

HVN: Album no…song maybe. For some reason I am thinking it would need to feature an awesome horror artist or a collaboration with someone I would want to work with to make it super special and most awesome to be worthy to carry that title! Maybe Eminem or Rob Zombie, I say.

10. During our last interview, you mentioned of naming the band after a song demo, named Coffin Carousel will we ever hear said song your band was named after?

HVN: Oh yes, you have a good memory! I have in fact already released that song which was originally titled Coffin Carousel. The song was on the debut EP Fiend [2015]. The song is Here To Betray. It’s a killer song! Very raw, but an important and necessary demo process for a cool band name to be born from.

11. How would you say this sophomore album compares and contrasts from your debut last album?

HVN: There is a more bold attitude for FMCS in my vocal performance, lyrics and production. Working with Julian Renzo to mix the album was awesome as I have known him for years and he knows all the bands and styles I like as he has similar tastes. I got to spend time in the studio with him making choices on sounds and parts of the songs. He also introduced me to a friend of his Daphne Vargas who helped me create the album skit tracks at her studio that feature on the album, just like on 90's rap albums, she later ended up singing backing vocals on most of the songs as well as contributing her own lead parts, she was a great inspiration for me to want to make the songs extra special and adding new elements to the band’s sound. Daphne introduced R&B vocal styles and played a big part helping an urban feel come to light with the songs along with classic horror sounds and orchestral parts I had built for the album. Contrast is huge, the coolness factor came more to light along with FMCS having a unique and original sound overall. I also nailed the Belinda Carlisle cover song Leave A Light On…It is the tea.

12. What other sort of plans of havoc does the band have in-store for the remainder of 2019?

HVN: I am looking forward to getting out and playing the new songs live and stepping up the bands live show when possible to the way I have always wanted it to be working with independent budgets. I have a good crew coming together in the background which all enjoy and share a kindred liking to horror in music and what the band stands for and represents. I will do one more music video for this album down the line, maybe in 2019 once the ideas have more time to progress.

13. Would you like to add or say anything more?

HVN: Only that I would like fans and newcomers discovering Coffin Carousel to spend one hour of their 2019 and listen to FMCS start to end and let themselves get lost in the album, remember to dream, imagine and enjoy that there is a band called Coffin Carousel that has stayed true to its direction and passion for creepy cool rock music with the intention of longevity. Oh, and stay awesome to yourself and others please.
